Size:  16.6 KBThere is no "textbook" in all of this. There were regulation items, to be sure, which were standardized more or less. But within such standardization existed far more variety and subtle nuance than certain dogmatic dullards wish to allow. The digital freak show with its rush to dogmatism and group think robs collectors of this variety, and those persons who bow to such stupid and really absurd anti historical shibbobleths have only themselves to blame when they end up with a hum drum pile of junk.
    damit, basta.

    The item above is not my property but I extend my thanks for the use of the images. The price tag is a nice extra, I'm still searching for a cap with one.

    The aforementioned officer upgrade cap from Shea, perched atop a favorite tunic of mine that comes from a fine collection and a gentleman collector.

    The cap was not cheap and I am surely thought of as a fool for paying what I did for it. I like the quality of the piece, it is an earlier cap with the white tag inside and a finer textile than that found in later caps like the one above. The velvet band isn't applied as nicely as one would find on a cap that started out as an officer's but I do enjoy the idea of an honest cap that was used, though seemingly only on occasion, and upgraded with the idea of thrift and utility. I think it complements the Stammabteilung tunic well.

    Als die Nazis die Kommunisten holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Kommunist.
    Als sie die Sozialdemokraten einsperrten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Sozialdemokrat.
    Als sie die Gewerkschafter holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Gewerkschafter.
    Als sie die Juden holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Jude.
    Als sie mich holten, gab es keinen mehr, der protestieren konnte.

    Thanks. One of the midwestern dealers had this piece, which is a Lubstein, and a relative of the Sayle F cap of similar date.

    Wonderful Montur. You can buy my collection and mine will keep yours company and you will have to buy many moth satchels or something.
