    Default Interesting Period Modified Standartenfuhrer Kepi

    This kepi is circa 1932/1933 prior to RZM control. It is the non-rigid top form found worn by early SA officers. This kepi started out life as a red top Staff officer's kepi. At some point, the officer was promoted to Standartenfuhrer of a standarte in Gruppe Sudwest with the orange-yeoow top. As can be seen in the pictures, the orange-yellow top was added over the existing staff red and the litze for Standartenfuhrer added. The leather chin strap has been 50% replaced due to wear. In the photo, you can see how much thinner one side is from the other. The officer evidently had a fondnest for this cap as he wore it in the days of struggle. Was he frugile, as evidenced by the half done repair to the chin strap or sentimental?
