    Default Help in Black SS Cap authentication

    Hi all,

    I was just wondering if somebody could take a look at the attached black 'SS' cap and to hear their thoughts as to their authenticity. Knowing how many fakes are around I'm more than dubious, especially after having compared against fakes on this forum - but before I committed myself to one way or the other I would really appreciate a more knowledgeable opinion on its authenticity. It was supposedly picked up in Czechoslovakia, and comes with other things which appear to be OK - a Swastika flag and some Third Reich literature, but also some things which are definitely repro - like a 'Luftwaffe' dagger etc, so I am very much conflicted!

    Thanks in anticipation

    I agree with John. One further comment:
    Just look at the word what should be as Hersteller!!

    Sorry to write that my colleagues are correct. This cap is a fake, and of a kind I have not seen before.

    Please look here.

    also look in this thread. What defines an "early" SS cap?

    I specialize in this kind of thing and have included a lot of material not found elsewhere in the internet.

    In future, before you buy an item of this kind, ask us here.

    Also, our master Wim, who commented above, is the real expert and his wonderful books on Nazi caps contain much splendid material that costs far less than the purchase of a fake cap.

    Good luck.
    damit, basta.
