    Picked this up in a local antique shop. I thought it was neat looking. Panzer pink? I can't quite say for sure. I'm trying to date it, but the newspaper inside doesn't have any information date wise.

    Hi M D Helmets, a nice pre 1970 BW Heer Panzer visor cap, it was made in November (XI marking) the year (which will be a 1960's year date) being obscured by the sticker.... all pre 1970 caps had the ribbed cap band in black, with some examples turning anything from a lighter shade of black trough to tan colour ! due to light exposure throughout its life, the main body of the cap being a dark grey...after 1970 the band was black with a velvety appearance (loosing its ribbed look) also all Heer uniforms adopted a standard light grey colour including all headwear.....as before 1970, the colour of these uniforms had tended to be from a blue grey, every shade of grey through to almost black !
    Prost ! Steve.

    Thank you Steve! As always you're a wealth of knowledge when it comes to BW items. I think it's a very near looking visor. I can't afford a wartime panzer visor, lol.

    Edit: the year under the tag is 1964. I can see a 4 at the end.

ID:	837665One of the pleasures of Bw uniform even today, among those who have tailored uniforms, is the variety of greys. If you have not seen it, as I have, then you will be surprised at how un uniform this uniform really is.

    I think 1960s Bw things are very pleasing.
    damit, basta.
