    Probably the lovliest Reichsbahn visor in existence--a DRB General visor with the very rare bullion insignia.

    This is a terrific site dedicated to the Reichsbahn.
    They have some lovely color pics, as here.

    OK, back to the more mundane stuff.
    This is a late-war unissued middle-ranks visor by Pekuro.
    Note the rayon band; the lack of bottom piping; and the use of a political M-39 eagle (not uncommon--see pics)
    Last pic is a comparison of an earlier M-41 with the velvet band; metal schwingen; and bottom piping.

    This is an M-41 General visor equivalent for the top pay grades.
    It was probably made in 1942. It has a doeskin wool top with celleon piping.
    The interiors of these were very spartan.
    Maker is Clemens Wagner.

    This one is a late-war unissued General's visor (I would date it to late 1944).
    The body is rough re-processed wool with the Bevo wreath.
    Hat is also made by Clemens Wagner (although unmarked).
