The cockades on this cap are incorrect in so much as the national cockade was not worn by the Reichswehr after 1919/20. It was re-introduced in January 1933 upon the demise of the Weimar republic by order of the President... Hindenburg .
The state cockade was always worn on the field cap so the Bavarian cockade is ok and would fit in it's use.
That all said this cap has unusual non standard features that point me to question it's originality. It could be argued as being private purchase example or may well be a civilian cap of that era.
Hope that helps.
