For some reason, original political organization officer kepis are difficult to find. Years ago, I was able to purchase the 40+ year collection of noted collector Art Sylvie. Art had an amzing accumulation of fine quality kepis from the SA, NSKK and NSFK.
Today, there are many fakes of higher ranking officer kepis with tresse. All of those that I have seen make the same manufacturing error(which I will not post here as there is no reason to let the fakers know the error of their ways).
This is a private purchase SA Staff Standartenfuhrer(Colonel)kepi that was part of Art's collection. If there is interest, I can post more.
