The "Rosetta Stone" for Visors and more to come...

Article about: This is a 50th anniversary company overview for the Hamburg firm of Willy Sprinfeil that dates to 1951 (the company made all types of soft headgear during the TR). If there is any interest,

    Here is the Welhausen catalog I am referring to. Not as detailed at the CW catalog. However, Welhausen was primarily a tailor.

ID:	660153Might I note what is significant here is the way in which the Wagner personage details the levels of quality in the respective models of caps, and that these models had names, more or less unknown heretofore. I.e. Qualitaet K, L, M, N etc.

    This is an outstanding thread. The amount and type of information presented here is invaluable and I am certain those presenting it had to work quite hard to gather it. You all have my sincerest thanks for sharing your knowledge with the rest of us on this fine forum.

    I would like to suggest this thread be made a "sticky' as to provide an excellent reference for the serious collector.

    Regards,

    CMH

    It should also be added to the Muetzenfabrik thread, too, as a sub reference.

    This material stands out in contrast to the other site, and most English language sites, wherein the latter fixation on gun show lore and the fetish of glamor dealers and or glamor dealer freak shows gets in the way of actual knowledge. My warm thanks.

    I hope others "jump in" and add also some material.
    There must be such material in your hands, I am sure.

    Show it, as you cannot hatch it!

    As I am personally not much interested in SS, I eventually could show
    a price-list with images from November 1, 1940 from the Kleiderkasse
    der Schutzstaffel der SS
    . I need some time for that as it is 29 pages
    and I have to scan them (from a copy). This material I will give stamps
    with my name. This is something for next week or so, as in between of
    my postings here I still need time to write my volume 6 for the headgear-
    series for Bender Publishing.

    Thanks Adrian for making this thread "sticky"!

    We did put some material here, but the additions by Wim Saris have elevated us to new, golden heights.

    I wouldn't know where to begin to find such nice and informative materials. Out of curiosity, where does one find such things?

    Thank you, again and again, for such nice contributions.

    Kindest regards,

    Not just about headgear, but just some tip off how to learn about uniforms and insignia.
    For those who are not familiar with this, some images are shown. I have ten thousands
    (maybe even ten times that much) of such pages in my archive and so a random choice
    of some material is included.

    It is my personal opinion that the elementary knowledge of collecting must be rooted in:

    a) knowing the correct German expression for any sort of item;

    The page is from a 1935 Woldemar Wimmer-catalogue with many cloth insignia and
    other items.

    b) knowing about uniform-regulations (especially from the organizations and period one collects).
    Shown a front-page for TeNo from 1940 and two pages about justice uniforms;

    c) knowledge of what is published in old catalogues, leaflets and price-lists of any kind (as there
    often information is given about materials the subject was manufactured from or its style) and
    learn from advertisements;

    The three advertisements at the end of the thread are from July 1933 and March 1934.

    d) at least having seen colored uniform- and insignia plates;

    e) and consult uniform-booklets from the old days.

    Not an easy task, but with perseverance things can be found. I know that most of the collectors
    not ever having seen a complete uniform-regulation, not even knowing the name for it (and that
    is a must to locate it). Further it is my opinion one largely can suffice with copies, as this is what
    most collectors can afford (this is what I did through the years, since the early 1970’s).

    The originals are often very high priced (this has always been) and what is even annoying is they
    are very hard to find. Note that masses of material can be found in archives, especially in Germany.
    It is fun to find out where what is located!

    Sorry: By accident I have deleted the text from an earlier post of mine. Do not know what happened,
    but it was about the thread Muetzenfabrik, which I think it peters out and to much was shown,
    which did not have to do with the TR-period. Further I answered the last post. Looking for this material,
    as shown now, I started with since the early 1970's. It took a long way and what I have in my files is just
    a tiny bit of information. Many questions I have will never be solved during my lifetime!

    Wonderful things and thank you. My goal has always been to focus analysis here on primary sources, and your archives are a gold mine of such things of exceptional merit.
    Thanks for sharing them with us.
