    Can you post some better pics of the KVK please John. Is there a makers mark on the underside of the pin?

    You will need to post the hat insignia in the correct forum.

    '62' is the maker Kerbach & Oesterhelt from Dresden.

    If you could post some clear pics we can see if it matches other examples by the same maker here on the forum.
