    I forgot to tell that there are 2 types of the cap eagle , the so-called "state eagle"......
    The Reichspost ( German Postal Service ) used two different models : the small ( 45 mm ) and the large ( 55 mm ) eagle.
    According to regulations the small eagle was worn on the "Baschlik Mützen" ( These caps were mainly worn by female personnel ) and the large eagle was worn on the Schirmmützen ( visor caps ).

    But I have seen period photographs showing visor caps with the smaller cap eagle......

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Ahh the prongs fit perfectly with this one and going by the size of the cap it was most likely used by female posty's
