    I recently acquired an nco/em police hat that has a cardboard backing on the cockade.I have seen this before,but would like to know
    when this production practice started.The hat manufacturer is Ludwig Vogele from Karlsruhe.

    Hi Peter

    The thread on RB numbers is under the field equipment forum, started by ade. have a look at that it may help.

    The card board backing is ok. A practice used in Imperial times as well to the best of my knowledge. I have also seen post war cockades with the same backing.

    I guess its a way of protecting the cap band cloth from the metal cockade. They used to sow a piece of material between the cockade and cap on imperial caps as well.

    Any pictures of the orange piped cap.
    Hope that helps

    Hi Tony,
    Very helpful information on the cockade.The cap was won on Craig Gottlieb's last auction,so I am confident that the cockade is original
    to this Third Reich hat.
    The orange piped hat is now on the back burner for awhile.
    Again,thanks alot
