Was very happy to get this from a good friend. Added to the growing Reichsbahn collection. The Visor on the Mannequin is an old Post war cap redone, so I am really happy to have this original piece.

Is it maker marked? Or has the owner taken out the celluloid?

I am bald on top now, but the popular misconception when I was a kid was that wearing a beret all the time with the celluloid in would make you bald quicker. So we took them out!  With hindsight now I realize it is marriage/life that make you bald! Perhaps they thought the same back then.....
