    Default SA Kepi Pt2 Pink over green?

    Hi All,
    I received the kepi from my earlier post, the pink top that is published in Mr. Saris's book and once belonged to John Coy, I dug alittle further into it and hope Mr. Saris and others can help solve this one, I checked under the pink top and found green cloth with brown grommets, what does the green represent and does this make any sense? I also removed the eagle, it is RZM marked 1/16 and looks to have been the only eagle applied to the pink cloth, unless the same holes were used as the small eagle, although when lifted to expose the green it appears as there could have been a small eagle attached, easier to see with the naked eye then photo's, also, and I hate to think this but is it possible someone added the pink cloth post war to make this seem more rare then it already is?.....lets hope not. but anyway it is all put back together now and resting comfortably, so what do we make of all this? and as always thank you for your help!!

    There is no rarity between the two colors. #Evidently, the original owner moved to a different area and had the new pink top applied over the original green top. With the early white RZM tag, I would expect the green top to have holes from one of the two early model eagles. I have a standartenfuhrer kepi which has a Gruppe colored top mounted over the original staff red top.

    Thanks Bob, I am trying to figure out the shade of green and what district to associate it with, also since the later version eagle appears to be the only one applied to the pink what district would that make it?
