    Isn't the eagle a political eagle? The cockade looks much more worn than the shiny wreath. The insignia just doesn't seem like it goes together.

    No, it is a Heer eagle.

    Have seen this cap many years ago (possibly even the same one),
    but cannot remember what it was. Maybe I made notes, but....

    The eagle is an army eagle, which does not match the wreath.
    The cockade and eagle look older, the wreath is quite new.
    I even do not know if it were the same insignia twenty years ago.

    Eagle looks gold colored on my monitor. But, I'll defer to you guys on that point.

    Edit: Doh, I was so hung up on the color, I didn't even pay attention to what type of eagle it is. My apologies for the confusion. Very much a Heer eagle.

    It's the patina. Possibly a Neusilber version!!

    The insignia aside, was the hat period?

    Are there any empty holes in the pasteboard from prior insignia?

    Thanks. I will ask my friend. All I have are the pictures. He's a pretty knowledgeable collector so I assumed he already looked, but will follow up with him.

    Thanks again for helping out. It is a mystery for now.

    This one is in the unreferenced Weimar visors thread. I also remember a few years back one of the French dealers, Bernard M...or someone like that, had a visor he was selling as early TR general staff with a red band and red piping......was this the one you saw Wim ?

    cheers
