Early ss uniform?

Article about: I don't recall seeing this hat before. I guess it is an early SS uniform. Am I right? I wonder what that emblem on the side of the hat looks like. It sort of looks like an Edelweiss. The col

    The color in the kepi above is darker in real life than it appears here, and is different from the olive drab of later kepis. That is, the SA Olivbraun that one sees more frequently.

    Happy collecting.

    Happy collecting, and, at the risk of being didactic, the Sutterlin alphabet is a useful adjunct to collecting German regalia.

    The thing takes a little time to decipher, but it is worth it, surely. If the unit on the man's collar diverges from the Standarte to whom he dedicated the image, maybe he changed command or was seconded to another unit or something. Who knows? In the period of this image, the SA was growing very rapidly, so it is well possible that people moved around a lot.

    We thank colleague d'Alquen for his nice images.

    Thanks for the images....the cap I posted is likely from 1934 or so. It has no date stamp, but the early brown RZM tag. It was made by Kupper, but I do not have an image of its interior...

    The kepi on the left in the book above is known to all of us as a remarkable piece and maybe its owner will post another image.

    The Canadian site recently sold a very early officer's cap with a leather peak and a low crowned cap cover. It is a very nice piece, and seldom seen. I posted an image of it elsewhere.

    Here is a kepi with an Edelweiss in the Coleman collection. This piece came from Austria in the 1990s.

    another early SS cap. This was made by the Fa. Breiter in Munich, a firm that is still going strong. But this piece was made in the early 1930s....It is similar in age to the Kupper cap above, but is in a wonderful state of preservation. It was the property of yet another doctor in the SS.

    At issue above has also been alpine flowers on headgear.

    I hijacked the thread with SS caps, because I have little self control.

    another early cap....from a lower Bavaria Reiterstandarte. It, too, was made by the Fa. Breiter, I think.
