    In post # 34 of this thread, there is an elevator/doorman visor with a red (vs Bordeaux-red) band (still unexplained).
    I am just speculating, but maybe your hat is a wartime example with a variant red band (but who knows):

    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

    Tony, I think this is the one you are referencing--it was sold on numerous auctions as being Generalstab (I never bought into that claim):

    Thanks.........That's exactly the one !

    Erich K asked me about it a few years back and we just couldn't see how it could be Gen. Stab.
    Some things just keep going round in circles...............

    cheers

    Colors look different to me. Seems abit too much for just a variation in fabrics.

    Found a photo with a cap suchlike, but without a wreath. I do own this photo for at least 25 years.
    The owner of the cap told it to be early Heerespfarrer, but I have no idea if this was correct. I do
    not have the time to check all of the regulations. Their color was described as violet, as far as I know!

    Staff had carmine color......

    My thoughts "whirl" for Technischer Gestützdienst, but I am not 100% as I cannot find the
    description for the uniform. I know their piping was red. Neither can I find the photos from this,
    but they did wear the wreath and eagle. My files are a "mess" these days, sorry!

    OK guys. Some more pictures. Maybe these will help. Primarily they are just close up pictures of parts of the visor.

    My friend says there are NO other holes in the pasteboard that he can see.

    Any more thoughts would be great!
