    Nice early 1930's manufacture with field grey cap band and no schumi or cork board help dating it to about 1933. The lining is a nice blue cotton and the diamond celluloid gives us the maker and the place of purchase.

    Once it had been cleaned up the insignia I had just slotted into the holes already in the cap band. The maker was from ulm allowing us the opportunity to place the right cockade on it (württemberg).
