    This is not my area of expertise, so I cannot comment with any authority on the item's age and value but I have to point out that this type of hat - known as a "Schachthut", i.e. "shaft hat" - was and still is a part of the German miners' traditional dress. (The hats have differences in their furnishings depending on the region and the wearer's "rank")

    Please see here for a 2010 picture gallery showing many such hats in wear:

    ...this pattern is especially similiar:

    The crossed hammer-and-pick symbol, too, has absolutely nothing to do with the Third Reich period as it is a traditional miners' symbol and as such has been used long before, during and long after the Nazi reign; again, it is still used today.
    (Just have a look at the present-day version of the Grubenwehr-Ehrenzeichen: Das Grubenwehr-Ehrenzeichen | Ordensmuseum.de )

    Thus, why are you so sure that the hat is from the 1930s?

    To me it looks typically post war , the grey leatherette sweatband is of a Bundeswehr type design and the sweat shield appears plastic

    Post war manufacture for sure.

    Agreed. It is a post-war Bergbau lid. As HPL states, these existed from 1900 to the present, and it is really tought to tell the pre-war & wartime ones from the immediate postwar ones. (This one being an exception).
