Very nice nco !
the chincord can be original at that cap...you can see this one on period pics...
I agree with the above--the chinstrap is most likely original to the hat, given the nice fit and age.
NEC SOLI CEDIT
I really like the shape..it sits well, good purchase
I did find a Erich Schöpfel in Leipzig in 1949..there was also a famous Luftwaffe major with the same last name
Well done sir, I was wondering who purchased this cap. I am a fan of it's name tag.
I am definitely interested in researching the name Erich Schopfel, his ss no I suppose is listed also 298599. Any ideas on research?
Also, is maker 81 Robert Lubstein, or EREL?
A very nice black SS cap, but not necessarily Allgemeine SS. Prewar, all branches of the SS wore the black uniform as the dress uniform. It was not exclusive to the Allgemeine SS.

Very nice visor with lots of character
