Alex,

The first hat is for the Volkespolizei (VOPO) and the second one is for the Transportation Police (TRAPO).

1971-X

1972-B

1973-L

1974-O

1975-S

1976-R

1978-U

1979-F

1980-E

Gents,

There is an earlier dating system that I had but cannot find at the moment. Can someone else post it please. It is relavant for eary uniforms not for hats. Before the four digit number were issued to manufacturers they often used their names in hats.

Cheers,

Gordon

Alex,

Nice hats. Particularly the "crusher". I'd be interested in seeing the labels inside of these hats. Authentic "crushers" are rare and normally date from the 50's.

Regards,

Gordon
