A small point, the piping on the senior cap was originally silver wire, and then became alu wire. There is a difference, in the former degrades to a dark shade, and the latter degrades to white powder.
Luft Kapitan..can you contribute by posting some questionable examples of your own for our advanced teaching staff here..so that they may be able to answer what you are asking. Please DONT WASTE THEIR TIME...when there are already in place sticky threads with such topics ( Seen Below )
The age of computer technology and some old fashioned thought..from memory..led me to retrieve with minimal effort this thread just above your titled thread in the sticky section. This thread here Allgemeine SS Visor Cap

You are absolutely right that each post should have a please and thank you. Sad it is, indeed, that so often such minimal courtesy lies beyond the reach of so many. Or, the sense of entitlement in this brave, new world means that unseen persons bark orders at us saps like we were waiters in some dining room in a slap stick comedy hotel for madmen.
We all mourn the loss of your dear mother. There is much death and illness in the lives of so many here and beyond.

Thanks for the help and the wonderful examples. The good news is if someone asks my same questions you can use this as a precedent.
But you said that threads that point out flatly what makes originals look original and not fake are dangerous because they're guides on how to make good fakes. Soo...I guess the Afrikakorps cuff one and the Bevo one can stay up. It makes sense if you don't think about it. But yeah thanks for telling me the difference between general and officer caps with the piping, and thanks for the kind words. Whenever I doubt an item you guys come to mind. The one site I know to trust, even though I've been here so shortly. Well have a nice day.
