    These are post-war caps. Only in the rarest of cases did Feldmützen have sweatshields and sweatbands that went all around the inside.

    I forgot: original sweatshields were made of celluloid/cellophane which is rigid and breaks easily after at least 75 years, and, in case of celluloid, almost explodes when lit. These are plastic sweat diamonds.

    Sorry for being of topic.. But impossible to contact you hence your mailbox is full..
    Was hoping you would take a look at this visor, and perhaps put an idea to a maker...

    I agree with Wolfgang, both are postwar caps.

    Thanks for your confidence. I saw and admired the extraordinary (weave, colour of the lining) cap in your post back in 2019 - yet I've no idea who the maker could be - this seems to be one of the generic sweatshields used by several (small) makers - given that the sweatband is sewn in with quite large (hand-sewn) stiches.
