    Default Any Chance of a Heer Visor Cap Date

    Hi Folks,
    Is it possible to but a date on this Visor Cap just from these images please, I was guessing 43'ish but I'm no expert and to be honest what I know about German visor caps you could write on the back of a stamp, "lick it" and still not get ink on ya tongue.
    Cheers.

    Hi Kevin

    Nice cap. May well be wartime made but earlier rather than later I reckon.

    The logo on the sweatband will help date it better as it will indicate if the cap was made before or after erel got their patent.

    hope that helps

    cheers

    Hey Tony,
    Thanks for the info.
    What should I be looking for on the sweatband just the Erel name again.
    Cheers.

    Hi Kevin

    It's all in a word.

    If you look at the Erel info embossed on the LHS of the sweatband it will say something like " Erel Stirnschutz" then underneath either DRP or DRGM. This refers to the patent on the system Lubstein used to keep the forehead free of pressure from the cap and thus prevent the unsightly red mark across the front of the head when you took the cap off.

    Here's the main bit ......If it says Angem underneath the letters then this means the patent is pending and so helps possibly date the cap before 1940 which is when I think the patent was granted (may be wrong on that date).....

    That all said it is only guide not a definitive answer.

    cheers

    Tony, thanks very much for that info, much obliged.
    I've checked the cap and it says " Erel Stirnschutz Patent" there's no DRP or DRGM
