Default Tropical billed cap - Wolber & Praff

I've not encountered this maker before, has anyone else?

Wolber & Praff or could be Pfaff
Hausach

What the hell? a forum search turned up no hits for Wolber & Pfaff but a google search has the name listed here in this thread:

http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru...=482153&page=3

So the forum search is broken?

Great cap from a lesser known maker. Nothing wrong with it. I like that stubby bill.

Hi Ben, just noticed that there is another Wolber & Pfaff shown in the first post of this thread, different size, also hand sewn insignia I think. Nice cap!
