This one belongs to Fritz (Manfred).

"Rockel Echt Haar Homburg arrived! Lovely Hat, indeed. Nice the white sweatband!
The condition is very good, I would say little worn. No label inside. I think it's from the 50s, maybe earlier."

The Big Deal?
I bought 4 unworn and new old stock German hats. All are open Crown.
Two are Velour in Size 53 and 56 and two felt size 53 and 56.
My guess from the mid 40s to the early 50s.
The Sweatbands are stiff and dry out over the years.The Quality of the Velour is good. The brown Prima Haarhut has a very stiff felt and has a bit longer hair.
Steve and I are agree that they are from the early, 50s

Echter Rockel Velour, size 59cm, new old stock. Really fantastic colors (felt, liner, ribbon) and Velour finish. Also a perfect fit. Thinking early 50s but it has an earlier form so not really sure. This one took a while to arrive but well worth the wait.

Rockel Echter Haar, Great find by Manfred!

"Rockel Echter Haar arrived today. A bargain from Ebay. He has a bit longer hair in a dark blue maybe blue/black! Outstanding condition!
The felt is wonderful, the sweatband un reeded and soft and very thin and he has a light weight!
I am very happy with that suprise, because the seller had only one picture in his description! The age I guess late 40s!"
