    If that is the true colours, I think you are OK. Photos really need to be taken out of doors in natural daylight for best results.

    Still not keen on the insignia and cap cords. But Luftwaffe NCO's quality insignia can be found. A leather chinstrap and cap buttons could also be found.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade where the piping is damaged at the crown it looks as if its a plastic beading , is that right, only i thought that it should be a tight twisted string?

    no its not plastic, there is a hole in it, in the visor is a ring out of metal, this is what you can see, the ring is removabel and i think called a hut bŁgel, ther is for shure no plastic

    Return it. It is a post-war visor made by Pekuro. It is not a LW fire-brigade cap. If the body is dark blue, it is simply post-war Feuerwehr. (The body looks black to me in the pics, and if so, it is Bergbaudienst [mining].

    True LW Feuerwehr visors are very hard to find, and have a wool band instead of velvet.

    The band looks like velvet as well. Think it should be wool
