    Default Swiss or german/austrian visor cap?

    Hello Guys!

    I bought this cap today. The cocade and the badge shows swiss qualities, but inside it exactly looks like a WWII german cap (visor is light brown and the liner band is leather). The manufacturer is Litto-Kappe Wien. Anyway I didn't find any swiss visor caps on the internet. Did they made visors at all? What do you think?



    Thank you!

    Cap is Austrian--probably from the 1950s, however, I cannot tell you what organisation it was for.

    I can tell you that the red shield with the cross used on both badges is the coat-of-arms for Vienna. The manufacturer is from Vienna, too.

    Thank you! So I think it's sure that the cap is post war.....

    Hello levaid,
    this is a Viennese firefighter's cap (Berufsfeuerwehr Wien). The Litto Logo is quite ancient, as is the cap's shape (saddle shaped, not the typical Austrian saucer shape) so I suppose very early 50ies or late 40ies.
    Here is the modern version (unfortunately Litto no longer exists, they must have closed down several years ago already): https://www.raritaeten-shop.com/Samm...sol27lfhg4tk54

    Bravo, Wolfgang!

    You can find in the Bundesheer of today caps with a surprising Wehrmachtschnitt to them, but they are few and far between.

    PS. The elderly gentleman is an authentic citizen of Vienna and the young woman is a Pfieke, but she has become a citizen of the great metropole all the same.
    damit, basta.
