    Dean, a nice old cap...but sadly not Reichswehr or Imperial Army....but IMO from one of these eras 1920's/30's, like you say possibly forestry of shooting bund cap, it will be interesting to discover its identify.
    Prost ! Steve.
    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."

    I don't know a ton about these caps, but given what we know about the importance of color in German caps, I think that Steve is probably right, it does look like it could be a forestry cap, or a shooting club cap. What an awesome piece though, who knows who the original owner was? He definitely saw some great history for sure. That's an awesome find for a thrift store man!

    I like yours better though, definitely older and cooler.
