Unknown Third Reich Visor?

Article about: I just found this pretty interesting. I found the coat of arms for Regensburg, Germany. And the keys on the shield kind of match the keys on my visor. I know the keys are inverted on the vis

    The keys are usually associated with night watchmen. This appears to be a Weimar-era cap.

    I'm sure not intended to be funny but it really is....the Night Watchman's cap. Has got to be rare.

    Is $300 US too much for the condition and rarity of this item?

    I'd pay that much. I think it's really cool.

    "Wach Und Schlies Gesellschaft" ..... rare in my opinion.... first one I see....
    This "organization" is also mentioned in the Assmann catalogue so they were also active in the Third Reich.

    I think $300 is very reasonable, and the market for obscure TR civil caps is strengthening!

    It's actually not a single organization.

    The term "Wach- und Schließgesellschaft" (and minor variations thereof) was and is used in the corporation names of various private security companies.

    Their history is more than a century long by now: The first "Wach- und Schließinstitut" was founded in Hanover in 1901; the Wach- und Schließgesellschaften of Munich and Berlin were founded the next year, in April and June 1902 respectively.

    The crossed keys - in a variety of design variations - are the traditional symbol of such corporations and are still used today. As a wholly random example, here is the site of the Wiesbadener Wach- und Schließgesellschaft (est. 1907):

    A Google image search for "Wach und Schließgesellschaft Logo" or a similar term will turn up many more examples.

    Thanks for the inofo gentlemen. They say the best time to purchase is when you see it, (of course I wait for the experts opionions on here first now) so I did order it. I'll put better photo's on when I receive it. The website also posted a TR Mining officials visor on their website as well. They have great stuff and have never had any problems with them.
