ID:	551115The SS Gruppe West cap is in several books, in fact, and about its authenticity there can be little doubt.

    Gottlieb's price for his kepi is a little steep. What does Ben think of Gottlieb's "colored pipes" in all their glory?

ID:	551118Ben was kind enough to alert me to this cap (right), which was originally found by Jenkins. It is a wonderful cap, but it is unmarked. The SS Gruppe West cap, which I think is a Kupper, is on the left.

    Ha, that's an interesting one. I just sold my Pz piped cap and I'm already regretting it. The real ones are ultra difficult to find and there is zero chance of detecting a good fake via photos, you have to inspect them in macro detail.

    I remember the two kepis when they were on the ROR website, and liked them both from the start. I've only ever owned one kepi- an officers' one with alu piping around the crown- and it bore certain similarities to some of those presented here, in that the lining was black, and the side lining was finely pleated. If I can find pics, I'll post them...

    That would be most appreciated.

    I think we're finally getting closer to being being able to authenticating these things to a certain degree via photos. It's been a complete lottery for years and years now.

    Please don't tell anyone, but I own it. Or it owns me, rather. It is on the left. It was a sight cheaper than the kepi on the narcissist dealer website.
