    FYI, mine would be an "issue cap", most likely obtained from the DRB Kleiderkasse.
    Hi-ranking DRB "generals" did obtain private-purchase visors, but these are very rare.

    This one is from the legendary Paul S collection, and is a custom-ordered visor:

    The above hat was formerly in the Michel Aubin collection (whom, alas, has "converted" to Wehrmacht):

    Here is a nice example with the commonly-seen metal "schwingen":

    Since I am morphing this into a DRB thread, here is an example of the m-41 style for the second-lowest pay grades (any lower, and they would wear a chinstrap):

    Some real Schwingen. They are starting to fake these of late:

    Although not really my area of collecting I am always extremely appreciative of the posting of such excellent reference material. The hats themselves are terrific examples in and of themselves and one should never take for granted that prior these web arenas we would have seen only a fraction of these less popular pieces.
    Good work Chris and all the other collaborators who have taken the time to post their material.

    Indeed, I would like agree with Derek. A big thank you.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks, guys. As you can see, I have a weak spot for the Reichsbahn:
