Nazi war veterans league peaked cap (Kyffhäuserbund). Dark blue soft wool body with black embroided cap band showing swastikas and the Kyffhauser Memorial Tower, superb quality. The metal cockade is in very nice condition with no chips to the enamelled badge. Internal of the cap is in excellent shape with a blue lining free from tears but does show some sweat staining. The leather sweatband is complete and in excellent condition. Central of the blue lining is a greased paper diamond with the former owners name hand-written which I have not been able to read, certainly period to the cap.

NS-RKB (German War Veterans). Formed in WW1 so as to maintain a contact organisation between veterans of “The Great War”. Within this, basic welfare and comradeship were maintained and the veterans were helped in becoming a continuing active part of the German society. Later as the war continued the Kyffhauserbund became an active unit to defend the Reich. They suffered heavy casualties as their general fitness through age were no match for the advancing allied forces

This is a very nice example of an early cap during the Third Reich era – it would be hard to find better.
