    I am still doing serious research on my book about good booze, fine ladies, and fattening foods.
    It has been a life long quest requiring dilligent effort. My research into the different habits and physical attributes of ladies of different cultures and nationalities has without doubt been the most physical demanding but I love my work.
    My books are not nearly as lively, actually.

    Thanks. As I have written many times, the early caps, i.e. prior to about 1936/7 or so, are much better made and have more character to them than the items after a certain date, ca. 1938/9.
    I am sure there are exceptions to my little dictum, but I write from some experience.
    This new cap of mine was made by an A2 artisan, and it is of superior quality and remarkable preservation, even if it is surely eighty and more years old.

    It's quite true that earlier variations of all types of products are the most interesting times of their development. The quality is most always higher as well becuase of the handwerk / artisan input. What I wouldn't give to see a period purchace order for cloth or a Rechnung from an A2 Muetzenmacher.

ID:	433053Here is the para in the RZM circular where standardization was ordered in 1934. The Saris book makes clear that such orders were often ignored. Hence, the differences and the endless steeple chase for odd thingies at huge expense and much mental anguish.

    Very nice Images Berthold, glad I still have this solid wood ruler.
    I am back settled in the Reich, nice hill side place and the neighbor is the beautiful forest. A lot lot of snow right gives a lot of piece.
    In case you will find me, a Schwarzwalder will be for you on the plate.

    Hunting is still good, just a phone call 3 WSS caps survived so will see ...

    all the best,
    Robert
