    It pays to go back and look at the old references now and then. This is the only pic I know of one of these in wear:

    (from Vol. 2 of "Headgear of Hitler's Germany", which any serious student of headgear should have in his library)

    Seems like Halfar scored the contract for these.

    BTW, if anyone has one with the green band/piping, please post here:

    Here is a pic of one of these hats being brought back home after having been liberated. Note the "tlc" these hats received even back then!:

    I have never seen or heard of any of this, it's a first for me. This cap is a good example of how truly nationalistic Nazi Germany was; even the lift operators were given visors!

    Ah, the Liftwaffe, they had their ups and downs. Nice find, really obscure stuff.

    The cap colors would indicate fire protection.
