Fellas, please understand that I am not ungrateful for the advice and guidance presented here from F-B. If you take the time to read my questions and replies (which make up only a couple of the 3 pages of posts) you'll find that I'm merely trying to understand, not insult or cause anyone to have a stroke (quoting one of F-B's replies). It is clear to me that I should avoid posting anything black SS cloth related on this forum if I intend to question, or engage in any kind of constructive fact finding conversation for fear of being scolded...
Comments like this from a simple series of logical questions is uncalled for and will only serve to isolate people like myself, an experienced TR collector and contributor to this forum, as well as a registered member. It is very important that we, as contributors to this forum, understand at least two things; 1) we can choose when to contribute, nobody is forcing our hands to do so, and 2) not everyone who posts a question is simply going to say, "Thank you very much, I appreciate the help." Some will ask follow up questions in order to gain more insight and learn. At the end of the day, that is what this whole forum experience is about; learning from like minded community members. There is no place here for belittlement and bad attitudes.

I think this thread has evolved back to where it should be so lets get past the "he said, he said" aspect of it. As you said, we are all here to learn from the knowledge of our compatriots. Please except one small correction to your last post. Allgemeine SS and black caps and uniforms are not completely interchangeable. The black uniforms were worn pre-war by all branches of the SS-not just the Allgemeine SS. It is correct to refer to all of this regalia as simply black.
LIFE'S LOSERS NEVER LEARN FROM THE ERROR OF THEIR WAYS.
