    I had a feeling when I started this thread there would be a lot added to it--thanks for the input, and what has become a very educational thread.

    Thank you, dear moderator. Our aim remains enlightenment in the midst of a growing darkness. I have more Sonderanfertigung images somewhere, and I shall post them as they unravel to me.

    Another example in France, I think....or Elsass...for you irredentists. This is a Mueller, too and notice the tag and the date on the sweat band.

    Of course, this model is faked, too, but I shall leave to others to dissect the salient characteristics of said fakes. Generally, such fakes do not compare well to originals, as they get a number of details wrong.

    Such caps as endured real use end up often in this state, in this case an extra wear cap from a medical unit in Linz/Oberdonau.

    an officer's cap in a state of wear found in Nuremberg in the early 1950s and sold recently. This is an honest piece of regalia revealing the passage of time.

    He also owns this wonderful, early cap, which I think is the prototype of these Sonderanfertigung caps. For those of you not fluent in German, the phrase here: free of pressure to the brow via rubber cushion. Stirndrueckfrei is a phrase only possible in German. Many early SS caps have the signature orange or red rubber cushion behind what is otherwise a conventional sweat band.

    A wonderful, early piece, to be sure...this darker orangish-pumpkin colored silk lining is also to be found in early caps of this type.

    Another example of this type, but without the celebrated RFSS tag. I have included this image elsewhere.
