I'm guessing F-B is preoccupied with his other life for the moment -sort of a Spiderman thing.
FB is spiderman? I was expecting someone a bit younger!
Back to the cap, there is always the possibility that it's an Imperial cap which is why you have to check for cockade holes and other little details. But as I said, I'm sure Bob would have done this already.
I was elsewhere in central Europe, too, in fact.
Bob Hirtz knows his way around regalia, so I am sure the suggestions that this cap is from the Kaiserreich are somewhat wide of the mark. Such doubts do adhere to other pieces. There is no single pattern of such field cap, is there?
PS while I am peculiar, I am not a cartoon character.
I was here--a place unfrequented by action figures with funny suits. Some very famous people did come here often in the past, actually.
Cafe Sperl is in the Gumpfendorferstrasse in Vienna.
Some of the sewer scenes in the Third Man were filmed around the Karlsplatz, which is not far from same. Cafe Mozart is the cafe in the Third Man.
It is too touristy.
Sperl was Hitler's favorite cafe, since it is not far from the academy of arts that turned him down.
The present owners do not advertise him among the illustrious clientele.
Happy hats, but happier things to eat and drink in said places.
I like Vienna, but seldom find any thing from the III. Reich there. It is in nooks and crannies not open to intruders from the outside like me.
Between Hitler sitting in the cafe and the events in the Third Man, this is how Vienna looked a decade earlier. than the film about tainted medicine and love of Czechoslovak women. Or Czech and or Slovak women. Where all these hats reside today, I cannot say. It all did not work out too well, really. For the Austrian SA and SS men, the white shirt was a badge of honor for having been an illegal member of said organizations in the years 1933-1938. One will recall that the Anschluss in the from it took in March 1938 was not planned ahead, really.
