Help with Poliece and Heer artillery visors
Stopped in a small town antique store while on some business travels, and of course I have to sniff out the millitaria! I found these two visors in a display case. The one I know is a heer artillery visor and the other, might be rural police? Not sure of authenticity, so I dident pull any triggers. Let me know what you guys think.

The police visor is a post-war BRD visor with added TR insignia (ie, a fake).
Need better pics of the artillery, but it may be ok
Police visor is definitely bad, but the heer may stand a chance, but as said above, more pictures are needed.
The Drechler logo has been considered postwar by some. I am not so sure.
In a weird coincidence, here is an office on ebay right now:
Sorry guys, unfortunately these were the only pictures I took. The wreath is bullion, but the cockade is metal, which I have never seen such a combination. They were both priced at $350.
Not a bad price for the army visor...IF it is real.
the bullion wreath and metal cockade is not an unusual combination. It is fairly common.

Good info bob, have never seen one like that. What are your thoughts on the heer cap?
