    The SS-FM armband is a fantasy item which never existed during the Third Reich. It is based on the design of the original and period SS-FM car pennant.

    I would like to see more of the cap.


    Cheers, Ade.

    I am suspicious of the cap, too, never having seen one like it before. The label looks good, but I suspose they fake them, too.

    We have photos of originals of this pattern of M34 cap on the forum. Here is another one:

    It seems very strange that they would not show the eagle on the side - if it was there. Perhaps it is gone. CG wants over $6K for theirs! Maybe I should take a chance and buy it. Thanks for the information. What do you think about the patch? Is it ok?

    The collar tab look OK.

    Get more pics of the cap from the top and the sides and more of the cap badge, front and back.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I didn't send all the scans I have. The armband also has an RZM label. I'll try to get more of the side cap.

    Apparantly the eagle is gone. I wonder what I would have to pay for a genuine cloth M34 eagle. Any ideas?
