    Pat,

    I have seen both variants.. I personly prefer the bullion eagle/oak leafs over the metal.. But there are some metal ones with the right ammount of patina on it... That I like too...

    Sorry for the dumb question: a side cap without this stitching should be considered automatically fake?

    There is a hat listed in classifieds as police,but it has Wehrmacht cockade and eagle with army green hat band re-applied over police brown hat band.Waffenfarbe looks to be faded orange.Is it possible that this hat went from police to army service,and these alterations were period made? I do not believe I have seen this before.Your opinion will be appreciated.
    Thanks,Peter

    Is it brown though or is it just faded green just like the rest of the hat? I suspect a collector placed the extra green band on the hat. There has been no attempt to sew it on in any manner that could be called deliberate!.

    Thanks for comments.Did the Wehrmacht use orange piping ,or is orange piping always police?

    Hi

    Orange red piping is used on Army visors for feld-gendarmerie (field police) and from 1944 for ordanance officers.

    orange on a police visor is for the rural police. They had brown cap bands and field grey crowns.

    cheers
