Berolina is a post-war label, but this cap resembles a style worn by the military orphanage in Potsdam. In my humble opinion further research is needed.

The cockade without a wreath would be correct for this type of cap.

Old Wolfram Diebel fake from the 1980s.

I think it is the same visor as this one, now missing its Postschutz insignia:

I agree. In the original Berolina logo there is a tiny space between the inner circle and the outer triangle.

Best regards

Yes, definitely the same cap--the Postschutz wreath holes are visible in this lightened pic:

BTW, this hat is a fantasy--the Postschutz were never authorized a visor with silver bullion piping (even at the most senior ranks)--it was always orange in Reich proper, or dark green outside the Reich, as per these 2 examples:
