    Default The Belgian made SS cap skull

    These were a private purchase item made in Antwerp by a company called "Indian Caps".

    These are very distictive in their design, in particular, the use of the wire prongs on the reverse. The badge is made from zinc with a silver wash finish.They are unmarked.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Dimas, I bought this one over 25 years ago now. I was told it was Belgian made back then, but at the time I had no real idea. But I only discovered the makers name this year.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I'm suprised this didn't have more of a response when you posted it Ade, you don't see these often! Would these have been produced for the SS in Belgium, or just distributed generally like the usual cap skulls?

    Thanks for posting, and thanks for digging this up Teutonicknights!

    Hi Mat and Mike, thanks for bringing up some old gems. The forum was still new back then and we only had a couple of hundred members, so many old threads never got much of a comment. Great to see how we have grown over the past few years.

    These were made for private purchase in Belgium.

    Cheers, Ade.

    PS: Just to make you sick, it cost me 8 back then.....

    As an aside, Kris (stuka f) has over 5000 dies for military badges in his collection, many from the Indian Caps Co. of Antwerp.

    8..? You must have forgotten to add a nought or two on the end there! Haha

    Very nice catch, it's incredible how prices have soared over the years. I assume 8 was a bargain for the time too, surely? I was over the moon with acquiring my TK for 75!

    I've just added these photos to my reference picture collection, and you might want to add these to the sticky thread Ade!
