    I'm a new member and would appreciate any help authenticating this visor. Pics aren't the best..I can email seller for better ones if requested. I wonder about the sweat band, a bit dark with no perforations and pretty new looking. Seller not showing an RZM tag..should there be one? Thanks for helping a rook!SS Officer's visorSS Officer's visorSS Officer's visorSS Officer's visorSS Officer's visorSS Officer's visorSS Officer's visorSS Officer's visorSS Officer's visor

    There are original caps with dark brown sweat-bands without perforations, see here:

    Felix Weissbach Glachau in Sa. Sonderanfertigung black cap.

    The pictures are indeed not the best - from what I can see the velvet and the fabric looks peculiar, I don't know wheter this is only due to the lighting. F.-B. could have told on first glance, I am looking forward to the specialists' opinion.

    What concerns RZM tags: there were caps without them, depending on the date they were made or whether the maker cared for regulations or not, see here:

    This should keep you busy for some time...

    I am with Erwesa--that is some funky looking Trikot, and velvet seems off.
    Most Officer visors were made in doeskin.
    Is there an RZM tag, and the seller will not show it, or is it that there simply is not one?

    Thanks for your thoughtful replies-think I'll let this one pass; not worth the risk at this price point. I'd also wondered about the fabrics, no labels anywhere and a modest effort at good photography. So the study continues and it's quite stimulating! Yes, hope F-B is back soon, he's a fountain of knowledge....

    I believe he's gone forever this time.
