    No problem. The veteran insignia and caps are a minefield ! On the plus side they are also more plentiful and good value compared to other branch of service prices.

    I like them

    cheers

    Tony, they really are easy to collect, and are the cheapest TR visors you will find, and plenty are in good to mint condition. Vet visors have yet to be faked or even reproduced--they just are not worth it. What you do see is post-war BRD vet's visors re-badged with TR insignia. Volume 2 of the Halcomb/Saris book lays out most of the variations of these visors, to include Kyffhauser, Soldatenbund, RKB & NSKOV.

    These can be dangerous--they are also postwar, but follow the DAF Fest cap design, also used by the NSKOV. Anytime you see a hat with "PEKURO" stamped into the sweatband, it is postwar:
