    Default Chin straps on black SS EM/NCO visor hats

    Greetings all.
    Having just purchased Vol 4 Headgear of Hitler's Germany (Saris et al, 2005), I note from Page 38 that from April 9, 1938 the chin straps of Black SS visors should have been stamped (RZM, Date, SS runes).
    Taking F.B.'s advice and not wanting to delve deeply into the nooks and crannys of my only example, I wonder what other collectors may have found?
    If a hat is post-1938 and has no such markings, what can be concluded? How often might chins straps have been replaced either by original or subsequent owners?
    How fragile are these parts of the hat after 75 years?
    Any advice or contributions are highly appreciated. Paul

    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.
