    I have always wondered if this same Belgian company made any SS visor hat eagles. So for, I have not seen one.

    Are there examples of the Belgian SS swastika hat badge made by the same company?

    Never seen any metal cap eagles , I think most likely just these WH-eagles ( and Luftwaffe ) were locally made . Shown set from a Flemish volunteer was given to WAF-member " Luc " , a combination often worn by them ..

    Mist thise one!
    Nice to see the skull!
    Indian Caps ended back in the late '80 ties, the buildings, in center Antwerp,were sold and converted into expensive lofts.
    The whole factory was moved to a place out side the city center.
    But the owner died soon after, it is when thise place had to be cleaned up, that i showed up.
    I bought the entyre stock and ended up with 15.000 matrixes, machines, furniture, sewing machines and 1000 km of fabric used for uniforms.
    It took me 3 months to clear the building.
    I only found a few TR related matrixes. Two or 3 sets AK helmet shields matrixes, a railway officers buckle matrix, Wolfsangel matrixes and a few other that I don't remember.
    A large stock of WH officers belt buckles with claws,were also part of the left overs, things the former owner still sold to anyone who needed them.
    I think I opened a thread about Indian Caps in the past here somewhere.
    All the paper work was destroyed by the familly members, in the offices, whyle I was clearing the building. I was never allowed alone into the building until they were shure all paper work was cleaned up.So I didn't found anything that could reveal what or for who it was made.
    I was told that some die's of the entyre collection were robbed by a other familly members, movers, when the place was moved for the first time, and even military and police officers took die's when visiting the late widow at the last adress they had.
