    Default 3 SS Fez

    Hey guys, i'm helping a buddy of mine on authenticating these. They are priced at 250$ for 2, I honestly have no experience on these, from what I can tell I do not like the insignia on the gray fez but I do on the red one. What do you guys think?
    Thanks

    As far as the red Fez I have my doubts about just the emblems alone.
    Gray ones I also do not feel is good but better pics would be good.

    I think all are good, just the lousy pics are throwing Eric off.

    The insignia is typical Dachau stuff where these Fez's were likely to have been picked up too.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Eric, I love The reference pic of your minty SS Handeshar fez! .

    Regarding the fez's in the OP, they resemble something US GI's would do when raiding the Dachau warehouse. They would typically use the Fez(s) as buckets or containers to fill up with tabs and patches. Later they may have sewed the patches on the fez in order not to lose them or perhaps as a trophy or even a collage.This is seen on may vet bring backs , like pins stuck to holsters or belts, and so on. My friends grandfather sewed hundreds of patches to curtains that were in his house (that were also acquired in the Dachau horde)

    I agree with William. That's a very reasonable price. I would think twice about taking the patches/tabs off of them and rather leaving them as found. This is almost a form of "trench art", IMO. This is all up to the buyer, of course. It also depends on wether one is trying to profit by splitting them up or preserve the items the way the liberator left them.

    Every bit is good.
