The label. It probably mid 60s on as the marker name is listed as KKBw.

A side view. The colurs on these pictures is dead for the dark grey caps. Not easy to get the true colours from a digital camera.

The interior. Another cap where the sweat shield has been removed and the lining stamped with A.

Nice hats !! And combinations still on my wish-list...
Beside those new aquired visors there is a twin to your artillerie-visor in my collection:



...and a private purchasable dark grey Peküro- visor, made around 1960 so still without coloured piping. It comes straight out of a tailors shop so it was newer used...:


..and - as really last one for today - a 1973 made visor with yellow piping of the Fernmelder (comunications branch). Due to the information on the sweat-shield a official delivered piece - also never worn.


@strange color: The blue-piped hat looks a little bit purple under special light condition...and the first two hats are really dark grey...the pictures where taken inside using a flash. Really no good idea but much easier then carriing all the stuff upstairs into the garden...

Nice caps! What type of magazine pouch is on the wall next to the brotbeutel? Off topic, but I just noticed it.

regards

2x Panzer: At first the dark grey version - not very rare, I have two of them and payed 10€ for each. This cap is produced in 1964.

second is much rarer - the light grey one. It is much rarer because short after the introduction of the light grey visors (I guess in the late 1960´s) the black beret was intruduced, so it was in use only for 2 or 3 years.

Klaus, its a pouch for 3 Uzi magazins. Should be of israeli origin and used in the BW.

I just got this nice visor. I am having trouble with determining if it is Luftwaffe or Aufklärer Heer. I can't really tell if if is a dark grey or a blue. It has the German Army insignia on it.

I have not seen any other Aufklärer visors for sale but many of the Luftwaffe that looked almost the same.
