    Default Early SS visor cap

    This one is up on ebay right now, and I'm pretty sure its a stinker, but I wanted to throw it out on the forum and see if all my opinions are correct. So here's what I see 1. The chincord is incorrect 2. The piping looks too thick 3. the cap has vent holes on the side 4. I've never seen red lining in an SS visor 5. The tag in the front of the visor almost looks like it has a DAF insignia on it. I'm trying to get better at researching these visors through the use of our wonderful forum here. So am I correct, or totally off base? Any opinions would be most welcome. Thanks.

    The examples I own are either the 1934 model with the runes and such, or an early or non RZM type. None has a red lining, but I would never say never with items that were not yet standardized.

    I know of a black field cap with the peak that has a reddish lining.

    The original post item has been constructed via the use of our enclosed images. A daily phenomenon.

    I am very limited in my focus.
    Fate has enabled me to collect a number of 1932-1935 caps of which I am very grateful to examine these at close range and share my findings with the wider world.

    Thanks to Adrian for his wonderful site and his wise tutelage in what is otherwise a cosmos of chaos and disorder.
