    It may have had its early badges restored at some point, but the cap is in a high state of preservation. It came from a world renowned collector and good friend.

    That just oozes quality--symmetry, style, and shape all in one.

    Gents, this is a textbook example of why you cannot overlook the early caps.

    Thanks for the praise. This cap has the rigid, garrison structure, with the cap spring. Many of the earlier ones do not, as was typical of such items.

    Usually the caps of this species are beat up, but this one has survived in good shape and also more or less free of collector damage.
    damit, basta.

Clemens Wagnerschwarze SS Dienstmuetze, Fa. Clemens WagnerThis one is somewhat worse for wear, but I am also very fond of it. It has a more field cap structure to it. I restored the tag to it. It is from 1935, and is a Trikotmuetze but with a repaired or amended piping.
    It has great character and I wonder what its owner saw.

    schwarze SS Dienstmuetze, Fa. Clemens Wagnerschwarze SS Dienstmuetze, Fa. Clemens WagnerThe black SS enlisted cap is most often found in the 1938 or 1939 variety. Such is also quite rare in the greater scheme of things, but these caps
    exist as an expression of the expansion of the SS, even in the first years of the war, when new Allgemeine SS units were raised in the conquered lands, i.e. Elsass.

    Gents, this is a textbook example of why you cannot overlook the early caps.
    In this connection, I would note that: a.) the pre 1936 caps are from an epoch in which the SS was smaller ergo, what caps survive are more rare and also the early markings are more aesthetic than the later ones, and b.) these earlier caps are much more nicely made in contrast to the later, which emerged in a time of the hectic growth of the SS amid raw materials controls, price controls, labor shortages, and so forth which resulted in the cutting of corners even before the war began. Read the UM as concerns all of this.
    In the process of collecting more than one of these items, I have been able to make such observations. That is, when you compare the caps with the articles in the UM about the shortage of skilled workers, the rearmament, the preparation of the economy for war, and, of course, the growing role of the SS in the party state.

    To each his own, of course, and happy hats to all!
