    I believe HS 195 is Heinrich Willie of Hannover.

    Here is another by Willie, with a peak so high that I doubt a bird could perch on it:

    Note the chinstrap button prong (on both items) pierced through the label - an odd characteristic of this maker.

    Thank you for posting these images of your cap, showing this odd characteristic. I almost believed that the button prong was pierced by a probationer.

    Hi Anders, I like your turn of phrase "silly old hat". I think you have been hanging around with "FB" too long

    It looks like a superb example.

    The detail about the cap buttons is a nice trait to know about. Thanks Bruce.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I have seen or examined at least 6 Willie's, possibly 7, and they have all shown the pierced label.
