    Hello John,
    I believe this is a Reichsbahn visor with incorrect eagle placed on it.
    A little rough around the edges but, if cheap, what the heck.

    Ralph:
    It was cheap. 190.00 USD. Just thought it was odd. Now to find the right hardware for it. I seem to like the odd stuff. I don't know why.
    Thanks,
    John

    Hi John ,

    Your visor is actually a " Feuerwehr " ( Fire man's ) visor.....
    prussian blue cap , Carmine piping and a black velvet cap band......
    Below is an example of an officer's version.

    Regards ,

    Thanks Theo:
    I now know what hardware to look for in putting it back to what it is suppose to be.
    Any ideas where I could find an eagle badge for it???

    Hiscoll has one for a reasonable price (40 Euro) I dont know if this direct link will work www.hiscoll.com/viewphoto.php?shoph=27043&phqu=2 otherwise go to Hiscoll Military Antiques and do a seach for Polizei Eagle (Feurwehr being a branch of the Police Service)

    Great looking cap John and a Polizei eagle is quite easy to come by!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    thanks Guys For all the help. It seems to be not the most desirable visor in the world, but I like it.
    And that's what counts.
