The Rarest of SA Kepis?

Article about: This cap is a real puzzlement. I do not believe it has any connection with SA Gruppe Hochland or even the SA. The Gruppe color at the top is incorrect for Hochland. There is also a lack of R

    I know of guys that got feelings of nausea and started sweating when entering his collection room(s). I have seen them with shaking hands and I was sure they got a kind of envy over them!
    They probably suffered from a bout of the collectors' equivalent of the Stendhal syndrome!

    Quote by Wilhelm Saris View Post
    He lives in Europe. Not much collectors have seen his collection as he is very carefull with inviting.
    ...as he should be, considering the indubitably enormous financial value of this collection.

    For those less informed, here is the definition for the syndrome described by our Andreas.

    Looks like Marc V. on the WAF ended up with it:

    Yes, it is the same cap: what is shown in post 1 and what Marc V. brings.

    He knows the collector, who owns it for many years. The other caps in that
    thread from WAF will be from the same collector (as far as I can remember).
    Two more photos, which I got from the collector, my good friend:

    In a few weeks I will visit this collector again and see many of his new caps
    and other newly purchased items myself. It will be a day of joy, a feast for
    the eye!

    Bruce Hermann of Grenadier is going to be starting an auction soon.
    The pic is preview of what will be in the initial offering--looks like the white kepi will be there:

    Two of those caps are ex my collection. The SA kepi in the dark brown and Silesian yellow is also in the Saris book.
    The black SS officer cap is in the Shea Beaver book.
    Bid to own and bid for fame, is what I say.
    I actually wanted the kepi back, but there you are.

    I do not believe the hat met the reserve price at the auction, and the highest bid was $1700:
