    When you think about how many of these were made and seen in period photos and film footage and how many you see today, I think these are very under rated caps. A great addition to your collection. Congrats.

    Thank you, Ade. I share your thoughts on this type of headgear. In photos and film, it was represented as almost ubiquitous, yet, today we see relatively few examples. It is a unique shape and it dredges up, in my mind, images from Riefenstahl's propaganda films of the Reichparteitag.
