    Default black SS cap, fake, Beinhorn, ca. 195X

    This cap is a seldom seen fake. This example has real insignia. Bob Coleman can speak to the Fa. Beinhorn, which made Bw caps (....and this cap....too...!) at the beginning of the latter in the middle and late 1950s. Click image for larger version.

    damit, basta.

    My first black SS officer cap was a Beinhorn. These were made in the late 1950's as I bought mine for $20.00 in 1960. They did utilize genuine insignia as they were plentiful at the time. As FB said, well made but lacking RZM label and visor stamp.

    Interesting info, thanks.

    Did Beinhorn retail these hats as reproduction collector pieces then?

    Unfortunately, this cap will have many "defenders" on the other forum....

    I saw this cap elsewhere and wanted to add my piece. These old fakes are of far higher quality than an Atwood cap, the latter of which are far more common in the junk heap.
    The Beinhorn cap has many Bw like traits.
    Our site has enough images of real black SS caps for the beginner to orient themselves.

    Indeed it does but apparently we don't know what we're talking about!

    I have a couple of 1960s Bw caps here, and I should include them. Bw=Bundeswehr.
