This tunic is much lighter in colour then the previous one. There are no stamps or insignia on this tunic to indicate which state used it. However, there is a slit inside the right lower pocket to allow a pistol holster to hang outside of the tunic supported by a belt of some type worn inside the tunic. So this tunic belongs to one of the police forces that wore their pistols this way. This probably indicates it was worn as a summer service tunic in urban areas. The interior of the Hessen tunic is set up as a field tunic.

Breeches/riding pants made from the same mottled material. There are no markings inside these pants. They are made in the exact same style as the war time breeches/riding pants.

A post war hat made in mottled material. Notice the difference in shape from the war time M43 style cap at the start of this thread. This style was retained when the new green uniforms were put into issue. It has a cockade from Bavaria.

For comparison, here is a later type cap, in the green material, but in the same shape as the mottled material one.

And another cap of this early period as worn in Berlin. This cap came with a repro TR eagle sewn to the front but with PP Berlin GB markings under the sweat band. I have removed the TR repro eagle. The piping is silver for an officer.
I do not believe that the cap of this type posted earlier in the thread would have had a police star for a cap badge. I think the cap is too early to have used a star badge. It probably had a state cockade similar to the one on the Bavarian cap that I posted above.

Regards,

Gordon

Paul,

The two holes are typical for a cockade like the one on my Bavarian cap. There are two prongs on cockades hence the two holes. That doesn't help with what police force wore this cap unless there is a makers label/markings inside the cap and even that is not fool proof. Most police forces preferred to buy locally made items of clothing but that didn't happen 100% of the time.

Regards,

Gordon

Nice hat! I don't think there's a way to nail down the specific date, but I would say 1970s or perhaps late 1960s. It's for a middle ranked officer.

i collect BGS documents and paperwork like that.

I consider these caps from early-mid 60s, maybe later also, but impossible to date. Early 60s officer Bergmütze i have, has similar label.

Regards
Klaus
