    Thanks Steve, do you know if these were standard or related to a specific branch of the service members?

    They were standard on Army caps, enlisted and officer. Gold for navy.

    There are no maker marks that I can find, thanks for the input! Oh any idea what kind of value these have?

    These were also used on caps worn by members of NSKK Transport Todt and Speer. A nice original piece.

    Thanks again Bob! This came with the batch of fake SS and SD tabs I posted, so I wanted to be sure.

    Nice condition! Perfect paint and finish! A shame it's missing the pin-it'll be loose when you find a cap to go with it! William

    I guess I will just keep it as is, and in the riker mount with the others, no point in trying to find a hat I guess...
