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:
schwarzer Dienstrock plus Muetze, Motorstandarte 2, Fulda Werra
The "Rosetta Stone" for Visors and more to come...

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!
