    And another....

    Heer (Army) Caps And Headgear

    I include these because the images are very good and these are dealers with whom I personally engage.

    Your experience can surely differ from mine.

    My point here is the sound pictorial material for a beginner.

    There are dozens, if not a couple of hundred dealers with real peaked caps, but the full range escapes me.

    Surely one can find caps for less money, too.

    One of my colleagues only secures such items at little cost from the most poetic and unlikely places, i.e. old peoples' homes, hock shops, out of the way gun shops in the US hinterland and so forth.

    Knowledge comes before envy, wanting, and such.

    The discipline of knowledge makes the successful collector.

    The razzle dazzle of the digital pictures and all the confusion that goes with them leads into a pit, unless you have the presence of mind to organize and analyze the data.

    This point is also why, as a very 20th century book heavy old man, I think the digital thing is more than flawed. The apparent truth of the images may not be really sound.

    There is a lot to look at in the whole wide world, but there is less to understand, and the heap of images actually gets in the way of knowing and learning as is essential to success.

    The Wim Saris books from Bender are where I would begin with all of this, the five or so volumes on III. Reich headwear.

    There is also the book by the ex Army officer whose name escapes me, but the Saris books are much better, really. (PS Wilkins....)

    There is a thread here on books to read and buy for this subject if you look closely.

    We have done all of this many times over.

    Happy New Year and happy hats to all near and far.
    damit, basta.

    A really good book is Gary Wilkins' The Collectors Guide to Cloth Third Reich Military Headgear. 400 pages of good color photos. Detailed explanation of construction, types, makers, etc. I'm sure there are other good books as well but this one was a great read.
