WWI Canadian General Services Enlisted Visor

Recommended Posts

I picked this up at a local antique store assuming it was WWI or WWII era. Since then I’ve had a few people identify it as a WWI Canadian general services visor. Apart from that I don’t know much about it. It is missing it’s leather sweatband as well as the chinstrap and buttons. The wool is in quite good condition and the cap badge looks to have been on for a long time.

 

Any further information or comments are very welcome. I’ll likely be selling it in the near future as it’s not my collecting area, and any ideas as to its value would also be appreciated.

Yep, WW1.... The chinstrap might be tough, but you see the side buttons come up for sale. This is a nicer than average example, with a little time, you should be able to come up with the missing parts. Over the last several years, these have done better than the stock market! lol Hope you got a good deal!

Great piece. I agree the side buttons will be easy to find but the chinstraop might be a bit tougher. A really nice find!

Thank you both very much for the comments. They had $20 on it so I decided to take the chance, certainly glad I did.

 

I will probably sell it as is, let someone who collects Canadian militaria and knows what they're doing restore the buttons and leather.
