    There is also a piece for sale on the Ulrich of England site, which appears to be a Kupper cap of some kind.

    Here is the 08/15 black officer's cap of about 1938/9 make in what seems to be un touched condition. It has the tell tale Clemens Wagner flimsy sweat shield. I have no commercial interest in this object. I share it here for the purpose of illumination.

    It has appeared with an enlisted cap with the VA stamp.

    I suppose someone could have stripped these caps of their insignia and sold them separately. What a capital idea. Maybe I should do it.....
    Here with a other very nice black lined officer one !

    Beautiful caps! I wish I could afford to buy one now directly, but I guess I have to save money for a long time first. Why canīt the prices fall to the same level as they were in the 70īs or at least at the 80īs.... But one day I will own one, still have to be patience though

    And thanks a lot for the the time and education you expert gives to us rookies. Itīs very kind of you all. If the old collectors did not bother to pass the knowledge to younger collectors this hobby probably will die with them, and the most TR objects thrown as garbage from the relatives of the old collectors when they have passes away. This will probably happen in some occasions when the relatives donīt know the value of the stuff but the more knowledge that are passed hopefully more people will learn the value of the TR militaria and keep the market filled with TR militaria for many years more ! At least I hope so , so I and many more younger collectors may have the possibility to collect for many years. So donīt take your militaria with you in the grave . (donīt meant to offend someone ,just a friendly joke)

    You should buy it. It has your name on it. The 1937ish type of cap is not often seen, and this piece diverges from the type of Wagner cap seen frequently in coffee table books. Wagner made SS caps from the hour zero, as it would happen. I have another Wagner cap made somewhat this way. The contracted these things out to sub contractors, as the correspondence of Mr. Stonemint indicates.

    The dealer who turned up this cap is the king of black SS caps now, providing them to a world wide clientele.

    These things were not cheap in the 1970s and 1980s, either. As to the topic of knowledge, if you see merit in my incoherent posts, then some others do not as you have read here and elsewhere. Some keep their knowledge entirely to themselves and deploy it as a weapon to unsettle others at a weak moment. Such has not been my project, of course, but I am a professional educator and do this all for a living. The challenge is to make sense of the internet and fashion something of merit, whereas superficiality, cyber bullying and obscrurantism are the norm. Mostly the latter....to include balderdash.

    Knowledge about the past is a pretty imperfect thing. The modern medium we use highlights the imperfections and increases the pressure on those who assert that they possess knowledge. I rather think that III. Reich militaria will keep its value, since the world historical events of mid 20th century seem to have lost none of their market share, as it were. I do not do this is an investment vehicle, but as an extension of my profession and to satisfy my own curiosity. My point is to learn more and less to make money. It is obscene how much these things cost now, but one leading collector mentioned to me that a ca. 1933 or 1934 cap with the early badges cost 65 dollars in 1968, and that was quite costly in its own way. I was collecting then, and such a sum of money was not so readily had, when an upper middle class salary was USD 15,000 or so....

    Best of luck to those who wish to own these things. They are only had in a few places and at no bargains. However, such items eight years ago cost 50% of what they cost at this moment, that is all I can write here.
    damit, basta.

    Congratulations. You should buy my collection, too. I need Euros. Do not put it on your head or sweat on it, either. Schoene Gruesse nach Elsass. I will drive by same after you are in Kentucky or wherever this militaria faire is....

    Das heisst, dass der Herrgott wolle, dass Sie diese feine Muetze kaufe, aber das haben Sie schon im Sinne. Herzlichen Glueckwuensch.
