N035577 NSKK VISOR CAP.

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 1930 as a 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 1931. The NSKK was a uniformed organization and regulations dictated at least eight different forms of dress depending on the particular function or duties being performed.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Rare NSKK other ranks visor cap. Brown wool body with chocolate brown piping and center band. Nice complete NSKK metal eagle and cockade (wreath is missing). Original chinstrap. Visor and sweatband are complete, but have mostly pulled loose and will need to be re-stitched. Complete liner with "Robert Lubstein" sweatshield. Rare cap!
