    SS M43 originality

    What I believe to be is an authentic late war Waffen SS M43 cap. The pictures say a lot more than I ever could. I don’t collect SS items for popular reasons

    E. u. F. Horster Marked Dagger -- Thoughts?



    Picked this up a bit before I had the experience I should have for such a purchase, as none of my resources really help me identify fakes

    Just created an account because I'm pretty new to militaria and would like some more resources to pull from. Seems like a good forum to try.

  • Designer of the SA symbol known

    This is what the "Uniformen-Markt" from May 1, 1936 says on page 86:
    (published also in the magazine "Der SA-Mann", number 15 from 1936):
    the SA symbol originated from a 1929-contest, which was lauched by the
    SA High-Command. The design was handed over by Hans Zöberlein (the
    well-known poet) and the leader from Sturmbann II from Standarte "List"
    from Munich, Obersturmbannführer Max Zankl.

    The symbol was the old Teutonic sign for lightning together with the so-called
    "Mannrune" (the symbol of a stern and unbending man with a flaming sword).
    Both symbols were combined with a ring. Later the hook to connect both was
    added.

    Maybe it was Heck who added the hook, but this is not mentioned!
