I'm too lazy right now to get out the step-stool and post my DRK officers, so here is my NCO:

For some reason, these DRK visors had some very high peaks (even for NCO's):

As stated, if/when I get the DRK Generals for inspection, I will post it along with my officers for comparison.

Does anyone here have either the mint officers Schiffchen or the mint helmet that were sold on the estand in the spring? If so, please post them!

The hat is real enough, its just that the seller is a little optimistic on his pricing in light of the hats condition!

Agreed! but what is going for it is the fact that it has an early eagle which is neat I think! I would not mind scoring a officer's version with the early bird, as I have the enlisted pattern with a later eagle!

The wreath's not right for DRK is it? I suppose it's no big deal to swap out for the correct one but... Here's a closer of mine:

Phoenix--your wreath is 100% correct for your hat.
Over the years I have seen many DRK hats with Heer wreaths, which is technically incorrect, but you will see this in period fotos quite often (sort of like SS men using Heer eagles)--its just a matter of the maker using what was available.

Chris,

This is not the Helmet that was on the E stand, but hopefully it will do.
