    See if you can guess what this hat is for (and if you have seen my other thread on another forum, you cannot play...sorry!):

    Big Tire Protection Police....BTPP, very popular before the outbreak of the war among the off roading crowd.
    Some sort of Bahn hat?

    NSMM - Nationalsozialistischer Michelin Mann - a result of Gleichschlatung of the tire industry.

    Good (and humerous) guesses, but keep guessing (and maybe this will help)--the only known pic of this hat in wear:

    OK, guys, good guesses, but this was a very tough one. The hat is for the German heavy-trucking NS organisation, the Reichs-Kraftwagen Betriebsverband (RKB). Not much in the way of information on the RKB, but it was an attempt to centralize control of a nascent trucking industry, then making use of the Autobahn.

    IMHO, the best logo of the TR. This is also one of the few TR orgs that did not use a swastika in their logo (the other being mining that I can think of off the top of my head).
