    Default Reichsbahn EM visor cap w/ Polizei eagle?

    Hello all,

    Have this one here and it is unlike any other I have seen or searched for. Was trying to determine if I should restore it or if this is some kind of hybrid visor or just the wrong eagle on the cap?

    right, I just didn't know if a random Tschako eagle was put on it or if was a Railway Police/Reichsbahn hybrid of some sort.

    Not a typical police cap eagle as Steve says Shako eagle. timothy

    The hat itself is an original Reichsbahn M-35 visor. As stated above, it should not have a Police Shako eagle on it (probably put there by the vet or his kids).
    Hat is too damaged to be worth all that much.

    so let's say I wanted to restore it after removing the Police eagle. I found this insignia and wanted to know if placing this and a cockade on the visor would be correct? I found another similar visor with these insignias but the chin cord is different. Would the chinstrap matter or were these rank related and not necessarily branch related? Any ideas?

    It may not be worth a fortune, but I think I would still restore it to original. I would go with the cockade and the winged gear.

    There is a thread on Reichbahn caps that 'Stonemint' has made:


    https://www.warrelics.eu/forum/guide...thread-382397/


    As you will see, the cords are pay-grade specific.

    I would use a gold political style eagle - much like his
    post #18 - that may be large enough to cover
    the holes made by the shako eagle.........
    Regards,


    Steve.
