ID:	800103Shea has this item, a 1936 made black SS cap with the more or less original Neusilber badges.

    The alu badges as of 1936 were intended for the grey caps.
    damit, basta.

ID:	800120The real alu badges are rare, because the armed SS in the years 1936-1939 was hardly the Waffen SS of 1942. And, with mobilization and the war economy, the alu badges did or did not give way to the Feinzink.

    welcome daveward
    I think, you will also be a good "savants scull"
    The "scull savant" can raise the level of inquiry here in the break out from the circular citation of gun show old wives' tales and unfounded legends and myths, and provide the collector community with substantial evidence from primary sources. Until such happens, you can be very certain that I will call your attention to this extraordinary lack of any concrete evidence for any kind of historical generalization.
    damit, basta.

    We have many others here who are fine researchers, who adhere to high standards of inquiry and who assiduously avoid misleading people with digital babble.

    Here is an example of what I mean:

    You can see in these threads I cite above that there is much added value through inquiry and the addition of primary sources to explain a confusing item.

    I write this in the knowledge that the proprietors here share this adherence to sound study versus the clap trap that especially adheres to these SS cap badges.

    Give the collector community tangible, useful and original sources that enable the better understanding of these items.

    A lot of words well spoken by Friedrich --- not referring to the specifics of this thread at all but I try to offer help when I know I can add something of substance, if not I simply shut up and listen intently to those who obviously know. There's a certain balance there. Luckily this is the relative norm on here... and, hopefully, it will continue on this way.

    By the way: beautiful detail and patina to the Shea cap insignia!

    Dear colleague, my comment was not directed at you at all. Your work here is of the highest quality and my cordial thanks for it.
