Default Bundeswehr cockades

Klaus and I were discussing offline the variations of BW cockades we've encountered and whether one type was intended for the Bundewehr and another possibly for Polizei/government use?

Basically we've enountered stamped metal types with black-painted centers and/or with black felt centers. They are otherwise identical.

Within my collection, I have a Zoll visor cap which has a cockade with black felt center. I also have a 1960 Luftwaffe Dienstmutze (M43) that also had a black felt center. All my remaining NCO/enlisted caps have cockades with black painted centers.

What we're trying to assess is whether these are just acceptable variants or have Polizei cockades ended up on BW caps to replace missing ones?
