Background: Uniform regulations for Nazi political leaders were addressed as early as 1920, with the standard headgear at that time being a Kepi-style cap. These regulations underwent numerous modifications, and in January of 1934 a visor cap, based on the army style, was introduced for wear. This 1934 visor cap was also modified until a final pattern was introduced in July of 1939. The NSDAP was structured in four ascending levels of government, consisting of the “Ortsgruppenleitung,” the “Kreisleitung,” the “Gauleitung,” and the “Reichsleitung,” with each group being distinguished by a specific color of piping on the collar tabs and visor cap.
