This is an outstanding
WW2 German Heer Officer's Visor hat, piped in green Waffenfarb
for the Gebirgsjaeger
Mountain Troops, and includes the original
Mountain Troops Edelweiss traditions Badge.
Beautiful hat by Christoph Geyer - Garmisch - Mohzenplatz 5 - Frischluft - D.R.G.M. 1419757 - VI".
This hat features the very desirable vented (Frischluft) Wreath, and a very nice Heer Traditions Edelweiss which is 100% original to the hat. Nice Eagle - note that the bottom prong is missing. You can also see some mothing under the eagle.
Sweatband and Visor has had much period restitiching (see photos) and the visor has been wired in two spots. Much age to the leather sweatband. Minimal scattered moth nibbles.
No size markings but I would guess it to be a 57.
