Hessen did have navy-blue. The shown blue is not that color. I rate the group to be
Oberrhein (parts of Baden an the Alsace), cornflower-blue;
the grey looks as Generalgouvernement to me. The color for Sudeten merely was

William & Bob,
Do you have any concern with the interior construction of the Oberrhein Kepi? It has been brought to my attention that this lining is not found on period items and has put my Kepi under question. I have it posted for sale elsewhere.

The gray one (Generalgouvernement) is a one-looker Clemens Wagner.

Thank you for your feedback Stonemint. Most appreciated.
