    I associate myself with the opinion above. Authentic SS kepis are very rare and oddly under valued.


    The Whammond / collector's guild site has an authentic kepi with a Kupper maker's mark at the moment. Contrast this piece here with same.
    Once more, we need a separate category for this sort of thing so as to improve the ventilation and sanitation of this site. We are, after all, not the more trafficked site with the maroon back ground, or are we?Click image for larger version.

    Attachment comprises an authentic piece. Also, the Saris and the Beaver/Shea books have numerous images of authentic SS Shaftmuetzen in luxuriant detail, if one is seriously interested in this proposition.

    Thank you FB for posting these photos. I think they show clearly what a true SS Kepi looks like.

    I concur that the first one posted has all the characteristics of a reproduction.

    Great to see the new forum working well right from the start.
