    Hello Guys!

    I bought this cap on saturday. It looks like a Bundesbahn cap, but the material is similar than the WWII visor caps. Ther liner is leather. I didn't find same caps on the internet. The badge is missing unfortunately.
    Could you help me to identify it?

    Thank you!

    Postwar cap--not Austrian, but German.
    Not sure of the organisation---could be mining, but they usually have a black velvet band.

    Hello levaid,

    it is not an Austrian cap and it is not a pre- but a postwar cap. The cockade is one of the BRD. Could be a fireman's cap but the colour of the piping appears to be red - firemen's caps piping were more carmine.
    What exactly does the tag in the sweat diamond say? Schw. Gmünd could be Schwäbisch Gmünd, a town in Baden-Württemberg/Germany. The rest is illegible - coud you post a better picture?

    One of the specialists will tell you what exactly it is.

    EDIT: Stonemint was quicker than me - not for the first time!

    Bravo, Wolfgang. It is Schwaebisch Gmuend, plainly.
    damit, basta.

    Schwäbisch Gmünd, as you said, then Kiesäcker (followed by the house number, but I can't quite make that one out).

    Thank you all! The text inside is: Franz Stelzner - Schw. Gmünd - Kiesdeker 4/1.

    Froh zu sein bedarf es wenig, und wer froh ist...

    Erinnert mich an die Volksschulzeit, schöner Kanon! Wenn man denn (noch) froh sein könnte...

    levaid: HPL2008 is right, it is Kiesäcker! (Which doesn't help to identify the cap.)
