    In my early days of this in the late 1960s and early 1970s, such issue caps in unused condition and in all branches were had for USD 25 or less. They were hardly rare at all in said epoch. Congratulations. The poetry of finding things in the former way had much to recommend it. Happy hats.

    The NSDAP and such items had the RZM to regulate the regalia of the party and its branches, and after 1935 or so, the only maker's mark was a license number, since trade marks were prohibited.
    These army contract caps have the maker as I noted, if the stamp is present. The army, of course, was an institution of the Reich and earlier of the kingdoms and principalities, with its own quartermaster system which had more or less been the model for the NSDAP. The clothing economy of the army as pertains to headwear is well interpreted in the Rest Militaria Verlag works I have cited here.
    After a certain point, known by others, a code system of Reichbetriebe and its number system was introduced, but I do not collect such war time Wehrmacht regalia.
    I collect black SS uniforms, but I also have a dozen or so army officer extra caps, as they are an old love of mine.
    The Extra caps usually have the maker's name, but not in 100% of cases.

    None of this is very simple, really.

    As always, thanks! And yes, I know your fondness for SS Uniforms and love reading your posts.

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    I have somewhere an example of the maker's mark stamped on the reverse of the sweat band, but I cannot find it.
