    Gents, I gotta retract my earlier choice--forgot all about this one: Marine-NSKK (& you can probably see why):

    I don't think this will come as much of a surprise to most, but here is what I consider the most aesthetically pleasing wreath design of the TR.
    Note the 3 lightening bolts on either side of the wreath:
    What organisation would this wreath be for? I've never seen it before but it does look quite impressive.
    Thank you.

    It is for Postschutz, or Postal Protection. They guarded and secured the mail, radio transmitter installations, and telegraph (hence the sparks/bolts, which signify communications).

    Thank you very much for the explanation and superb example. Are these caps/wreaths quite rare?

    It is rare to find Postschutz visors with the wreath, as they were a very small organization, and they were taken over by the SS in 1942 (and adopted SS uniforms/ranks).
    Finding loose wreaths is easier, but they are still uncommon.

    Arran, excellent (and obscure!) choice--I have only seen 2 loose examples, and I doubt we will ever see an original visor:
