SOLD

Original WWII German Waffen SS Officer’s Visor Cap Eagle Certified By The Gettysburg Museum Of History. We make the call of this being an Officer’s eagle because  this is a battlefield recovered example and only officer’s would wear visor caps in combat situations. Die stamped, zinc/alloy construction SS cap eagle. The left facing eagle features out-stretched wings and is clutching a wreathed, canted, swastika in its talons. The hollow backed reverse is a mirror image of the obverse and one of the  three attachment prongs are present. The reverse of the eagle is well marked with the faint, embossed RZM logo and SS runes within dual circular borders and the embossed manufacture’s code  RZM code M1/167 (we think) it is a bit difficult to make out the last part. The reverse retains one of it’s three original attachment prongs. Nice example, outstanding for a battlefield recovered eagle. If you want one that was actually “there” and saw battle this is for you! Some mild pitting and loss to silver wash and one prong otherwise good. Complete museum documentation (COA) Provided. Certified by The Gettysburg Museum of History. The Gettysburg Museum of History does not support or condone Adolf Hitler or the Nazi Party and is only offering this as a historic relic.
