Visor caps were a standard item for all personnel during the Third Reich period and regulations dictated the form of dress they were to be worn with based on the individuals rank. Originally the insignia worn on the visor caps consisted of the Weimar Reichswehr pattern oak-leaf wreath and cockade and a blackened leather chinstrap for all ranks.
In February 1927 new chin cords for Officer ranks were introduced with silver cords for the ranks of Lieutenant to Oberst and gilt cords for the ranks of Generalmajor to Generalfeldmarschall.
