    With a letter from October 31, 1935 Himmler wrote to the Chief from the SS-Hauptamt
    (Tgb.Nr.AR/1523 Geh), due to a meeting with Hitler about the cap eagle for the SS, it
    was decided that a new pattern would be designed. Himmler asked for appropriate designs.
    If the designs did not please Hitler, the eagle for the SS would be the pattern as until then
    worn by the Reichswehr.

    With a letter from March 23, 1936 from the Chief of the SS-Hauptamt (I A/O Tgb.Nir. 01559/36)
    the new pattern for the visored caps was announced. The Cupal version was to be worn by the
    Allgemeine-SS, available at the price of RM 0.25; the matt aluminum version was to be worn with
    the field-grey or earth-brown visored cap, available at the price of RM 0.13. All districts (SS-Abschnitt)
    were send this letter, along with two samples.

    (sorry, I do not enclose the both letters, as their condition is not best. Maybe mr. d'Alquen can
    post them).

    In a survey about the dress-forms from about 1936/1937 it was literally said: Es darf nur der "neue"
    Totenkopf "mit Kinn" getragen werden.
    "Wir sollen auch unser Leben für die Brüder lassen" (1.Joh.3.16):
    zum Gedächtnis Wilhelm Schenk. Er starb fürs Vaterland am 13. Juni 1916
