NSDAP Ordensburg Vogelsang peak visor cap circ: 1938 / 1939
A very good to excellent condition example of an Ordensburg peak visor cap from ordensburg Vogelsang. The visor cap with brown wool doeskin top, brown velvet capband and yellow piping. The cap retains a golden m1938 pattern large winged eagle/swastika along with the enamel swastika cockade, and golden capcords. Interior is in a beige silk with the manufacturer's details just visible, 'Anton Kinting - Aachen', along with brown leather sweatband. The cap shows just light use overall.
Note: The cap makers of 'Anton Kinting' were situated in the city of Aachen, and provided many of the visor caps for Ordensburg Vogelsang, which was located nearby.
provenance: This cap was found in the Aachen area by Sergeant Robert Brown of the US Engineer Corps and brought home as a war souvenir in 1945, to his home in Covington, Ohio. The cap along with other war souvenirs was retained by the family until 2009, at which time they were sold to military researcher / collector, Mark D. Griffith M.D. The artifacts were sold in turn to ULRIC of ENGLAND. Mark Griffith published the works, 'Adolf Hitler Memorabilia' Volume 1 & 2 (1986 & 1987) based on the material inherited from his father, Corporal Stanwood C.Griffith.
Exchange possibility: We are looking to enlarge our holding of Ordensburg material. If you have any artifacts relating to the three Ordensburgen (which do not duplicate what we already hold), we would be more than happy to work out an exchange against this cap, or indeed anything else which might be of interest.
