Black ss officer schirrmutze - suspicious

Article about: by Friedrich-Berthold But I think Lang is more interesting than these silly old hats, even if I have spent all my life chasing them and wasting a fortune on them.Attachment 190930Attachment

    Default Black ss officer schirrmutze - suspicious

    a contact speaks of a black, white-piped ss cap I haven't seen pix of as yet.

    I take these as suspicious points and would v'much appreciate expert insights.

    - black underside to visor, possible light x-hatching
    - NO marks - labels, stamps etc. at all other than '61' head size
    - overlapped piping ends
    - no sweat shield or threads for one that used t/b there
    - absence of 'that smell' (tho it's been in a hat box for 60 years - and no it isn't the ss hat box!)
    - eagle doesn't come thru the lining


    on the other hand it's got

    - black semi-sheen lining (rayon from the sounds of it)
    - silver wash insignia, with the wash toning and flat pins from the sound of it
    - sweatband of that 'papery' artificial leather


    seller describes saddle form and says it looks 'elegant' - I told 'im with no sweat shield that's V E R Y odd.


    I'm probably hoping against hope that it's a good'un; one that was made by, say, an apprentice or some student at a milliner's trade guild or some such.... tho the ss was persnickety I know about ANYONE making their headgear.

    many of course prefer known textbook types per f-b; understandably so.

    hope to have some pix soon.

    Vady's list is near, but so far. We cannot judge anything without photos. There are surely authentic caps without marks. But such a thing requires some skill to grapple with it.Black ss officer schirrmutze - suspiciousBlack ss officer schirrmutze - suspiciousBlack ss officer schirrmutze - suspiciousBlack ss officer schirrmutze - suspiciousBlack ss officer schirrmutze - suspiciousBlack ss officer schirrmutze - suspiciousBlack ss officer schirrmutze - suspiciousBlack ss officer schirrmutze - suspiciousBlack ss officer schirrmutze - suspicious
