    Default Fake Black SS Cap On For Sale Forum

    We have a new member, Shakespeare, who has only posted twice since joining this month. Both posts are in the For Sale section. One is a fake Beinhorn black officer's cap. These were made in the late 1950's. I know as I bought one for $25.00 in 1959, a lot of money for a young lad. The cap can be seen here:

    The only thing new since this cap was made is the addition of metal oval initials on the sweatband.

    I thought the interior looked strange. The price is suspect as well.

    my thoughts aswell as the peak wire near poking through the material at the top is bad quality!

    great pictures aswell

    That is a rare fake, actually. Much nicer than the Atwood caps, too, which were quite flimsy in comparison. Very interesting object ad things go.
    To be clear, as Bob writes this is an old fake, but a not uninteresting one compared to the Atwood, i.e. "Berlins aelteste Muetzenfabrik" caps of more or less the same date.

    I agree, one of the first generation of fakes. You do not see these all that often nowadays.

    Some of the earliest Beinhorn SS caps had genuine insignia on them. At the time, there were evidently stockpiles of genuine adler and totenkopf to be had by the maker. As FB said, these are fairly well made for the time. With a li,itation of reference material, these fooled many an early collector.

    Still a lot of money for a fake IMO, even if it is interesting.

    I agree and have moved the ad to the repro/copy section.

    Cheers, Ade.
