    Well Done and Shea just goosed up the value of your cap, and yours is more rare and more interesting.

    There are many reputable collectors that have these beauties at a fair price. The key as Friedrich-Berthold has mentioned is patience and validation.

ID:	462289The other cap that Shea has attached, an early cap made of Tuch for someone named AH on the staff of the I Sturmbann of Sta. 81 is not nearly as expensive, and is of note for its early date and sound preservation. It has none of the stamps, tags, and doo dads that we love, but it is still a nice cap for someone with experience and a keen eye.

    The badges do not match especially well, since an earlier eagle would better fit this cap, but that's for someone else.

    I do not get any kick backs on this thing, either, so there.....

    PS Shea says the Hoheitsadler is post 1945 one, so all the more reason this is an early cap.

    This one is good value for money in my opinion. A Heinrich Wille example with very sought after aluminium badges.

    At the risk of being abrupt and even rude, SS material was always expensive and always attracted fakers, and despite this fact, the collecting of same seems as vital if not more so. The fakers are a fact of life, and I hardly see this unfortunate phenomenon actually being more than an irritation. Akin, in its own way, to the resistance in France to German occupation, nez pas?

    As to knowledge, many collectors cannot understand knowledge even when we bust our a$$ to give it to them on a silver platter. There is much more knowledge around than when I was a pup, so it is also true that you cannot collect this material on a subsistence wage salary or rely on garage sales to find complete black SS uniforms.

    Life is inherently unfair and the digital age is more unfair than earlier times. Click image for larger version.
