Black SS cap, restoration of RZM tag.

Article about: I bought this cap twenty years ago, and it had been slightly denaizified with the removal of the SS runes from the Muetzenboden and likely the removal of the RZM tag with the owner's name. T

    Interesting cap which tells a story. You've just added a page... or perhaps the epilogue.

    Thanks. I know the identity of a couple of pieces in my collection, but such is the exception.

    The last cap I included was wrongly attributed to a Berliner, and became the object of a years' long search that ended in nothing. The cap was sold to me as a complete uniform, but the ensemble
    had more or less willfully been created in the 1980s in the UK with a very tall tale to match from an effusive collector and or dealer. How a belt from a Berliner (of small stature) could be placed with a large uniform from Mainfranken shows that: a.) the searcher has never been to Germany; b.) the researcher also did not look closely at the SS Stammrollenkarte, in which the physical measurements of the person are well listed, including hat size and shoe size.

    I have seen a lot of very bad research done in association with these artifacts, especially by those unskilled in the art, science, and craft of the thing.

    My level of ambition with this regalia is very low versus what I often see here, i.e. the desire for the Konvolut from the Knight's Cross holder etc.

    The new biography of Joachim Peiper is a useful corrective to this syndrome.

    My sole wish for the regalia is that it be prior to May 1945 as best as I can fathom the fact.

    I restored the RZM tag to this cap, whereby many others would either have never owned it or upgraded it away for an unworn piece.

    The patina on the thing pleases me, as does the obvious partial eradication of its owner's name, which failed.... as in "MJ"

    Happy hats to you all in this festive season and thanks to you all for your hard work with our site.

    I always enjoy your posts, sir and learning something with each. Particularly interesting here is the various means the owner's took to personalize their caps.

    Apparently, this was considered to provide more of a rugged, warrior-like look.




    For illustration, do allow me to provide a link to an example I had posted earlier this year:

    Post-war recycling of camouflage cloth

    From my correspondent in central Europe comes this Trachten woman's jacket-- recycled from an SS tunic or with SS tunic Trikotage....done so by the widow of its owner in the months after the war.
