frankenstein SS visor cap 'deutsche wertarbeit'
A simple question but yet nobody has been able to clearly tell me what this is. I believe this is a repro with original parts sewn into it? this cap is not mine but lately i got an (imho) original feuerloschpolizei schirmmutze with exactly the same lining and with the same amount of age too. I will ad some pictures of my fire cap for comparison. the last 7 pictures are from the fire police cap.
help me out please

That logo is a generic logo used by smaller concerns.
The "SS" visor is what we call a Frankenstein--it is made up of parts from other caps.
The second cap looks to be original, the same can't be said about the first. The sand-blasted exterior is usually a give away.
Best regards, Patrick
it appears the visor hat was made by ludwig vogele...
