    Outstanding. A real treat to see. All too often we click on a thread hoping to see something nice and are then let down by viewing something bogus. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Cheers, Ade.
    Dear Adrian, thank you. You and I have been through too much over the decade and more. I do hope to add value with my work here, and this piece is out of the norm. Even if it has a "scull" on it, and "prongs..." Bogus is a very good word, to be sure. My very best to you and your family, FB
    PS I will have other things to unveil in the time to come that will cause some interest.
    damit, basta.

    Do you people have mention of the grey peaked cap in price lists at some date ca. 1937 or 1938 beyond the citations in Mollo or Saris? That is, in the orders or a price list? I cannot photograph the buttons, but they are the variety used on caps and the back flap of overcoasts with the runes and date etc. They are sewn on.
    damit, basta.

    For instance, the 1938 Allgemeine SS price list makes no mention of it, or am I in error? I will not rip off the insignia, which likely has a date on the Hoheitszeichen.....as if this issue mattered.

    This image of the Hoheitszeichen is not mine, mind you. It illustrates that the pins on these things are fragile over the decades.

    thanks. Give you something to reflect on as regards context.

    One day, when I cheat the system and become a famous, rich artist before death... I may acquire some context too. A nice hat, with some of the finest looking insignia there.

    Oh, and I've saved them for reference, and I'm grateful for the opportunity.

    Maybe these things will go back to what they cost me in 1970, which was eighty bucks. I wish I had that one, too, actually. It was a nice piece, the first grey SS cap I ever got and a handsome one.

    How quickly you forget, FB . . . "we people", rely on you for this kind of information . . . and I find it sad to say, every so often, respect for your efforts seem to be haphazardly overlooked in a very few situations. Keep up the good work - you are a genuine treasure to those of us that desire a deeper examination of that which we all enjoy and come here to pursue.
