    I agree, the hat is a good one.
    It has a KM NCO style visor, but I have seen it before.

    Thx Stonemint, that's great. It was already on my table with its old friends, had a decent feeling about it. If it has your blessing I'd say it's "guaranteed for life"

    The only info from the owner is that it had come from the "NWR" region of Germany, Rhineland I think?

    The purple like rayon lining is also typical of real Luftwaffe items. Extramuetzen for Lw NCOs are not especially common.

    I had a fake of this kind in the 1960s, actually, and Mr. Mint is the voice of authority.
    damit, basta.

    NWR is Nordrhein Westfalen, the most populous region of what in its time was West Germany. NWR was not a political administration in the III. Reich.
    It was founded by the British Army in the occupation.
    damit, basta.

    Thx FB ;-)

    I should have been clearer, indeed it came from there postwar, glad you cleared it up for the other viewers, and thx for the info.

    "Extramuetzen" being the double stitched bill edging, or just the term for this edging in general?

    A google search is inconclusive, but gets pics like this, very nice... but not completely helpful. But still very nice, bit of Germany ;-)

    If you look sideways, you can see them. They are still in Nordrheinwestfalen even at a 90 degree angle and look very nice that way, too.
