    Back in the days of plenty, I would always collect the quality. At times, I might buy a cap that showed honest wear. However, I was always looking to upgrade the quality of anything in the collection. I would never buy a mothed or heavily damaged cap just for the waffenfarbe. Today's market place is more difficult for the collector building a collection. I would always caution that a cap in poor condition will over time only get worse. A pristeen example with proper conservation, will always remain pristeen.

    I would select the Officer's Artillery cap out of preference for quality, maker rarity holds no consequence for me. The bullion wreath is icing on the cake.

    I see poor quality, moth-ridden junk get bid up on Ebay all the time, when, for a few hundred bucks more, one could get the same hat in almost mint condition. Go figure.

    ...but no matter what we say here, we are all judged as having an endless fascination with the " Faschistische ństhetik ":

    I have several good friends in Berlin and Vienna who look like this woman, but they do not give fatal injections to kitties.
