I'm wondering if the makers logo is the same as this one currently on Ratisbons.
It's not a logo I can recall seeing before.

For this reason I will not touch anything of the headgear. From my point of view I don't like to touch these things.

Wise decision on your part as to convert it back would be to destroy the ensembles history ie: the personalization by the soldier who wore it.

Thanks Rob.
The beauty of these objects is also their uncommon manufacture.
The Alte-Art model is fascinating because of its many variations.

I have doubts that this is the way it was worn by the soldier with that very obvious shadow.

I am with you that one should never touch the integrity of a piece unless certain - in this case it appears obvious to me - how long was the BeVo wreath on there? One week after delivery? Let's say a month - not much compared to the 75 + years that followed.

Again, it is a gorgeous piece of headgear and this variation is often seen. If your gut tells you to leave it like this, don't touch it!

Agree. This was done. I've even seen crushers with cap cords added, despite the fact it was more in style to do the opposite, i.e. remove cap cords from a regular visor to make it look like a crusher. Just shows how there was a variety of individual tastes.
