    Ben,
    Thank you for the link to that book. I was unaware of it until your post and will now definitely look into it, the extract offers yet one more facet of that perplexing regime.

    Ben, that is a good book that deals not only with women's fashion (and women in the Reich) , but economic resources of the Third Reich--it is a scholarly work, and extensively footnoted.

    It also has a picture in it that dispels the "myth" that only SS items were made by KZ/Ghetto labor--there is a pic (plate 39) that shows young females of the Lodz Ghetto hand-emboridering LW and Heer insignia.

    Maybe Mr. Chris H. Stonemint has some Weimar caps that illustrate the issue. The ones I have owned had no such inscription.[/QUOTE]


    F-B: Interesting issue you raise, and one I had not considered. I checked my hats and resources, and cannot find one marked with"Deutsche Wertarbeit" nor do I recall seeing a Kaiserreich/Weimar hat marked as such. There are Kaiser-reich hats made during the TR (to replace hats the veterans had lost) that are marked as such, but they obviously do not count.

    I thought I still had my DRK DDR visor, but must have let it go.
    Here is an early KVP visor with the marking:

    Above hat. I would guesstimate it dates to the early 1950's, but no later than 1956:

    Thanks to all for the wise interventions. I had not known of the English language book on the fashion industry in III. Reich, but do own others in German. But Ben has made a wonderful addition to our collective quest and many thanks to all. There are many books on Aryanization, as well, that ventilate this issue, but this Berg Press work is first class. They publish very good books of great merit.
    Nazi economics policy is a side interest of mine, having been compelled to read a lot of European economic history in graduate school and in the subsequent years.

    Best regards to all.
    damit, basta.
