Article about: This kepi is ex the Alfred Ex collection, and then my collection, and is in the Saris book.

    The Al Ex kepi is indeed in my book (volume 3 from the headgear-series, page 559).
    The silver button in front defines it to be the district of Berlin-Brandenburg.
    A golden button is so Niederhein. It all is explained and specified in various SA orders
    (for example from July 7, 1933).
    As Bob says..........

    "Wir sollen auch unser Leben für die Brüder lassen" (1.Joh.3.16):
    zum Gedächtnis Wilhelm Schenk. Er starb fürs Vaterland am 13. Juni 1916

    I owned this cap blissfully ignorant of its glorious story. Ex was a local here and had lived through the period as a young man.

    He had a very sophisticated collection, a chunk of which I ended up owning for a while before I dispersed these things.

    Now someone else can own this kepi, in full knowledge of its excellent provenance.

    If you want this cap, write me a pm and I can clue you into its disposition.

    It is no longer mine, but it deserves a good home among our wise readership.

    This Berlin SA kepi is something i would love to have in my collection, but i am saving all avaliable funds nowadays for a very special historical piece for my collection and i must be strong and avoid all temptations.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    Kudos to F-B for bringing this Kepi to light.
    Many collectors think SA Kepis are common in this condition, when the opposite is true--they are much rarer than the commonly-seen later SS EM/NCO black visors.
    They then get rarer by the 'farbe--this Berlin example being an excellent example of the same.
    If you want just one no-questions-asked EM/NCO example from an uncommon Gruppe (that is also book-referenced) this would be the one to have.

    I think much the regalia associated with Berlin was destroyed in the war, unless it was in those parts of Berlin not bombed off the face of the earth and or not fought over in 1945.

    I have never seen an Allgemeine SS uniform from Berlin, for example.

    That is, of a Berlin unit of the Allgemeine SS.

    Most of what I own originates in the US zone of occupation and or stationing of USAREUR/USAFE forces.

    I did own this item and one of you should own it now and give it a good home. It was offered to me, actually, but I have to buy more SS stuff.
    damit, basta.

    Do give them a new home. They are in the leading pictorial works.

    I was looking for photographs I had from my SA-kepi from Niederrhein
    with the black top (see volume 3, page 558). Pitily I cannot find them!!

    This cap was even more rare and most interesting, as beneath the black
    top, there was the earlier used color wine-red for Westfalen. Apparently
    the person moved to the Niederrhein district and had the top changed
    perfectly into black.
    Maybe I come across the inner photos, then I surely will show.
