    i'd pay up quite aggressively for any of those three with the blue watermark. fantastic photos and i feel examples that would compliment my collection nicely. thank you for posting them. they are a pleasure to see.
    Thank the Czech news agency who have put their treasures on line where I pinched them.

    My best to you all.

    Thanks for the pic of "Jugend um Hitler". I have a copy of this, sans dustcover and I had not seen the dustcover before until now.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Attachment 469090Attachment 469089The cap on the Kelly Hicks site is a Sonderanfertigung, which is wrongly dated to 1935 (again because of the RZM tag,) but is a Wagner of 1938 or so. It is a rare cap and fairly priced, even if it presents a couple of minor flaws easily repaired.
    Dear Sirs, may I ask who you refer to as potential repairers of minor moth nips to such tricot woolens. I have seen comments on these pages refering to their skills but their identities escape me, (was it BenVK?). Mostly I am someone who prefers to see a historical item turn to dust rather than "restore" it, but I do see a collector's role as "guardian" rather than "owner". How do other collectors see repairs of minor damage such as small moth nips ? I am often happy to preserve as best I can, and leave repairs for a future owner to decide. Your opinions are appreciated. regards, Paul

    I can repair such damage although to be honest, I prefer to leave moth nips alone and concentrate on re-sewing loose peaks/sweatbands. I say this because it's mostly about the structural integrity for me and making these things last for another 70 years plus. Moths nips are purely cosmetic.

    Nice early image of Kurt Meyer on the right and an ultra rare black clothed peaked cap on the left.

    There are a few surviving examples that I know of- one here in Canada, one which sold last year in the US (discussed at length on this forum), one owned by Paul S. which I think is the same example that Wolfe-Hardin used to own, and one in a collection in Japan. I've also seen one which I believe had had its cloth visor removed and replaced by a fibre one in the pre-war years...

ID:	469927Maybe Mr. d'Alquen will show his black field cap with the cloth peak. Ben has great skills as an artisan. I believe fully in stabilizing and caring for these things. They do biodegrade otherwise, especially because collectors also put huge pressure on them in search of RZM tags, and such.
