    Of the few visors that I "own" my favorite maker is my Pekuro. The quality is just fantastic, but the provenance puts it over the top (KC winner). Yes...it is not rare and some often say they are over rated but it is a beautiful piece.

    Although my 1936 Lubstein HG NCO is a close second...

    My apologies, I neglected to add "Other" in the poll.

    My personal fave is J.C. Kornacker of Hildesheim.
    They used accordian-pleating on their linings, and have an aesthetic look that I describe as being almost pneumatic:

    I note a Welhausen vote--they are also an unsung maker (you can pick out their visors in period photos, they are so distinctive):

    Mom 'n Pop makers count as well (ie, unmarked)--this is probably one of my favorite caps of all time--late war, simple, with no bells & whistles, but it has a grace all its own (and the entire front panel is stiffened):

    Hermann Potthoff (HPC) is another underappreciated/unsung maker.
    Besides Erel, they were the only other company to use a "frischluft" system (& I would have to believe that their air vent system worked a heckuva lot better than Lubstein's):

    No votes for Clemens Wagner? I agree, they got sloppy during wartime as far as quality is concerned, but prewar, they made some killer visors, such as this SS Genl's:

    I have a bit of a love affair with Luftwaffe Officer visor caps by Erel....
