N022080 NSKK OVERSEAS CAP. (Feldmütze)

BACKGROUND: The development of the NSKK, "National Sozialistisches Kraftfahr Korps" (National Socialist Motor Corps), can be traced back to 1923 when the SA introduced a "Kraftfahr Abteilung" (Motor Section) to transport personnel as required. In 1928 the SA Motor section was expanded to "Kraftfahrstaffeln" (Motor-squadrons). In an attempt to create a national motor corps, the NSAK, "National Sozialistisches Automobil Korps" (National Socialist Automobile Corps), was formed in April of 1930 as an NSDAP auxiliary organization, subordinate to the SA. In early 1931 Adolf Hühnlein was appointed as Chief of the NSAK and proposed a name change to NSKK, which was officially accepted in April of 1931. Shortly after the purge of the SA in the "Night of the Long Knives," in June of 1934, the NSKK was promoted to an official NSDAP organization, given independent status within the party and absorbed the SA Motor Squadron’s personnel.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: A black wool cap whose fold-down side panels slope towards the front where they are sewn to the side of the cap. Sewn to the left side of the cap, above where its side panel begins to slope, is a machine woven, first pattern (1935-39) NSKK eagle and swastika, with a banner arching above upon which is "N.S.K.K.," all in the early silver-aluminum thread with black accents, on a orange (Motor-Brigade Sudwest), inverted triangular rayon base. The interior of the cap is fully lined in a black cotton-rayon blend. Original RZM tag is present. Original NSKK buttons and stitching. Roughly a size 56. Nice cap,
