    Hi James, this is a 1936 pattern SS cap eagle.

    Most, but not all, are marked with the RZM mark and SS runes and contract number/date.

    They are not made from tin but either aluminium alloy or zinc kriegsmetal.

    This is a very broad subject and has been covered on the forum several times. Fakes of these abound. 9 out of 10 turn out to be bad. Collector demand for these is always high.

    Cheers, Ade.

    hi adrian many thanks for the information most appreciated when i searched the web on cap badges the pictures had me confused as all of them had 2 pins on the rear where as mine originally had 3 ? above the serial number there is what looks like to small circles with writing in but very hard to see with naked eye ,i can only hope mine is original as it came from the same source as the cuff titles i picked up were the ss the only division to wear the eagle on there caps like i say i have no knowlege on this at all thanks james

    Hi James, the SS cap eagle is very distinctive, due to the shape of the eagles wing tips, which form a shape like this >. Only the SS wore an eagle like this. Some have 2 pins while others have three. Two pin types I think are more commonly seen.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Looks like it might be a later model . See the streaks, or lines in it?
