M1933 uniform kepi with maroon facing of the type issued to enlisted men and non-commissioned officers in the Sturmabteilung [SA], the paramilitary wing of the Nazi Party in the Ostland and Westfalen districts of Germany, between 1933 and 1937. The flat topped cap has a first pattern political Reichsadler badge; the second pattern was released in January 1934, but not required of SA members until June 28, 1937. The manufacture of official equipment was monitored by the Reichszeugmeisterei der NSDAP [National Equipment Quartermaster of the Nazi Party.] After the Nazi regime came to power in 1933, a colored band matching piping and gorgets was added to indicate the SA Gruppe or district from which the unit was drawn. In January 1934, a second pattern eagle was created, but worn primarily by political party leaders until June 28, 1937, when new orders requiring its use by SA members were issued.
