    it looks to fancy to be a ddr doesnt it? but perhaps it is i, read that the grey peak is an alarmbell right there and the green chincord looks alot like an east german police cord

    Your cap is an FRG type for police of forestry or Schuetzen and more or less from the 1970s onward, until the 1980s or so. I think.
    damit, basta.

    Also, a knowledge of German geography will indicate that Wuppertal Ronsdorf was not the in the DDR. Wuppertal is east of Cologne. Cologne is on the most German of rivers, the Rhine, in the West.
    damit, basta.

    You can be certain it is West German from the 1970s or 1980s. One of my friends is a FRG Navy officer and gave me a cap of his with an identical lining.

    Mr. Mint has arranged a survey of these things in detail somewhere here. If I find it, I shall attach it.

    DDR caps are quite different, and after the 1960s, tend not to have maker marks, i..e. logos of firms and such.

    Sorry to disappoint.

    And, of course, from the 1950s on, FRG made caps have more and more plastics in them, versus whatever materials were used prior to 1945.
    damit, basta.

ID:	867837Kupper was a vendor to the NSDAP from a very early date, but the Kupper caps of the 1930s are quite distinct. I can show those to you, too, when I am awake.

    The sweat shield is a soft pliable material which is a sure sign of post war manufacture. Third Reich caps had a very rigid material.

    Hello DS pzkpfwIII,
    bit late for an answer, I know, but I just happened to stumble over the thread. I own such a cap with badges, it is a Bayerische Landpolizei cap (Bavarian rural police) and looks like that: Polizeihistorische Sammlung - Bayern 1965-74
