    Thanks.

    PS I was not sure if this was the right forum.

    Thanks Tom, I already knew the rank but did not know what insignia and where to get it. Thanks for the link, but I want one in a similar condition to the cap, not a mint one and also it seems a bit expensive, as the cap was part of a deal and did not really cost anything. Thanks again Tom and to Steve and Chris for commenting.

    Now I know what to look for which is really helpful
    Regards,

    Jerry, nice early Marine cap....for the rank of Leutnant zur See to Korvettenkapitan (Junior Officer ranks), it is missing its national cockade and Naval/Marine emblem, these are available on e-bay, just got to know where to look....see here, illustrations from a 1960 Bundeswehr publication "Unsere Soldaten" (Our Soldiers !) and a 1963 "Reiberts" (Soldiers manual).
    Prost ! Steve.

    Jerry, with your cap being an Officers, bullion insignia will be used, on earlier caps it will be two separate badges, a cockade and a Navel emblem....as on this cap. I also show an enlisted/NCO cap to show the metal insignia which is displayed upon their caps......
    Prost ! Steve.
