    Perhaps others have images of note. Authentic examples of this species of black SS officer cap for a senior officer are likely found only in the most exclusive and costly of locales, at least for us mortals.

    I agree with the above. A semi-common fake. Easiest give-away is the stylized runes. On originals, they (as can be seen above) are somewhat more "crude" in style than on this fake.

    The gold leaf runes in the fake are far more embellished than in the originals. The originals also show their age....

    An image courtesy of Robert Hassler of a Wille Sonderanfertigung cap for enlisted ranks from the year 1937......it shows the relevant details to best effect. The gold leaf runics are also visible here. The fakers cannot imitate these correctly. This particular Tuchmuetze fuer SS tag is much faked, but seldom very well, in fact. The RFSS tag is a theme in itself, but, it, too, evades the fakers. Pfui.

    by the way those insignia (on the fake) are available since the 60's...


    on the originals posted: Those caps always has the Deschler skull, I've never saw them with other styles...

    I love'em!

    In my own flawed observations of the existing evidence, the Deschler Totenschaedel is found more often than the others on black caps of the era 1934 until 1940 or so. I have seen few examples of Overhoff's Assmann's or Zimmermann's badges. Maybe others have a cogent explanation?
