    Default feuerloschpolizei officer visor cap by pekuro

    This cap comes from ebay Germany, it is my first 'officer' schirmmutze. It would be absolutely great if the following questions got an answer!!


    -first of all, is this for sure an Original 3th reich visor cap? It is Always difficult to put an exact year on a cap but pekuro is a well studied cap maker. I noticed there are some pekuro specialist overhere so please, take a look.

    -Is the officers cord legit? and if so, could it be Originally mounted to this cap? It is not bright silver coloured but has some kind of flecking instead (As far as I know this happend to very early (1934) caps but this one seems a bit different) + It kinda looks thrown on... the shape isn't as it should be (too much space between the 'knots').

    - ALbert ziegler is delivering fire protection related items till today, giengen a.d brenz is its location but what does 'Fil. Bachhagel' stand for? the name of the person who ordered the cap?



    all help will be greatly appreciated!

    The only thing I comment for sure on is Fil. Bachhagel - this refers to Filiale Bachhagel - obviously the distributor had a branch in Bachhagel.
    What concerns the other questions: cap cords could be original to the cap, they could be tightened by pulling the ends toowards the knots.
    The cap itself looks OK from what I can see: the inner coating of the top lining seems correct, the sweatband too, (no PEKÜRO perforation on it) but the specialists will tell you. I have a similar piece in much worse condition. The holes in the centerband caused by the badges are another question to be answered by the specialists - there seem to be too many from what I can see but perhaps the cap was used on after war - as was mine.

    I have just checked the cap in the Moran/Maguire book. The twin of yours is to be found on pp. 60/61 - same red-flecked chin cords, same "Roßhaarverarbeitung" without lining. Taking another look at your cap with a better monitor I noticed the impressions of the cap cords which originally seem to have fitted tightly, so yours are perhaps a replacement - or just loosened. The other thing are the holes of the badge and its impression. Hopefully the specialists can tell you more there.

    thanks for your imput! I Always like to be sure about visor caps so hopefully someone is able to confirm this is an Original. I did even wrote an email to Albert Ziegler to ask when they had a contract with pekuro, haha.. here is a daylight picture
