    Be curious to see what Wim Saris thinks about this one....

    It doesn't get good press over on the WAF...

    G. Eckenhoff Nachfl. - Berlin seems to have been a firm (if authentic) specialized in Forstdienst-Artikel:

    Johnson Reference Books

    And he is cited twice in this catalogue from an exhibition in 1907:

    So, could it have been some kind of Forst-cap?

    The eagle is anyway a state version. Not an army version!!

    Have no time to have a further look, but Eckenhoff is indeed
    a provider for forestry headgear, merely hats.
    A Bergmütze, worn since 1943 by fortestry personnel at the
    Generalgouvernement or Einheitsfeldmütze (November 1944)
    with green piping were introduced. The flap was also piped in this color.

    Nothing was said by a "general's" version with golden piping, as far
    as I know out-of-heart. Have not ever seen this type of cap being
    worn by forestry personnel. A look-a-like yes, but that was the
    so-called Baschlikmütze.

    An order from November 21, 1944 specifies the Einheitsfeldmütze
    for the forestry-organization (Forstkleiderkasse) was allowed to be
    manufactured by:
    Peter Küpper, August Schellenberg and Clemens Wagner. Others
    were not mentioned. Other forms of headgear were no longer allowed
    to be manufactured, other then the hat, to be manufactured by W & F.
    Baumgarten from Neudamm only at that moment.
