What is this cap I've just bought?

Article about: Never seen one like it before but it seems authentic. Price was reasonable and the condition is good so what the hell, I bought it. Chris will probably know what it is!

    I was going to say Weimer Police of some kind has a Forestry color but the blue piping threw me off on that one. Seems like I seen something similar on Kaiser's Bunker website. Nice cap anyway and I am sure it is original without question. timothy

    Is the piping then for an area or region if it were for police?

    I would tend to agree about police connections ,possibly a membership cap to the Blue Oyster bar owned by Herr Offizier Von Mahoney

    I've posted it here as well for some more exposure:

    I tried to find out, but nothing. May thoughts are for Strassenbahn- or Kraftomnibus-concerns
    (street cars and busses), as there are many things possible. Especially with color combinations
    for the headgear: blue with red piping (which is often used), but also bright-blue with green
    piping, darkgrey with dark-green piping; grey with crimson piping, grey with ligh-blue piping, black
    with red piping and so on. Until early in the war there were no unified uniforms at all. It then started
    for larger cities.

    Thanks for your research, looks like it will remain a mystery hat for the time being.

    This hat arrived last week but I've only just had the chance to inspect it.

    Really neat Ben though it would have been neater had it been the receipt for the mysterious cap! A common practice to achieve a little better fit....have seen it in hats and helmets.
