You are evidently new at collecting. SS material is NOT the place to start. The things you have posted are horrible and nothing close to genuine. Study, study and study more. This forum is an excellent place to learn. Build a library on areas in which you have interest. Self education is the best tool to building a collection of period original items. As to the late Col. Snyder's material. you need only do a search about "Snyder's Treasures." A horrible purveyor of fake material may he RIP.
You need to know and understand period construction and materials. Period caps were NEVER ink stamped with eagles and swastikas. A marking should serve a purpose, not add glitz. We hope that you can become a learned collector through this site.
LIFE'S LOSERS NEVER LEARN FROM THE ERROR OF THEIR WAYS.
