    My colleagues are right.
    This cap herewith has an actual "matched set" of badges from the Fa. Deschler/Muenchen.
    It is quite the exception, really.

    I was just there, in fact, and saw no remnants of same. I did walk past the VIscardistrasse, though.

    I only have these images, and thus cannot oblige the normal "money shot" requests of the rear of the insignia.

    Sadly, with the cost of original insignia exceeding the cost of complete visor hats, a few decades ago, there is no shortage of chicanery in making reproduction sets. The quality, of the fakes, has getten very good, but with study of only authentic examples, the fakes do not hold up, in pattern and in attachment hardware.

    My first black cap, a Sonderanfertigung from Mueller/Muenchen was a whooping 125 dollars in 1972.

    The impossible issue in colleague Hritz's statement for most here is the study of originals. They cannot secure the first object even to begin said inquiry into the nooks and crannies, as well as hooks of same.

    Good luck...the way ahead is a long one, but the goal a worthy place.

    Postscriptum: the issue is more rewarding when you collect the cap with the badges, actually.

    a zinc variant. By the way, aren't there some other SS collectibles about which we might reflect in the wider world?
    For myself, I am growing weary of posting all these cap badges.
