    This is a rare cap and while not in perfect shape, it has historical interest for the inquiry that resides here.

    I had heretofore only seen this species of Sonderanfertigung cap from the Fa. F. Weissbach in Sachsen.
    damit, basta.

    Thanks again FB. An interesting visor, that provides further threads in this tapestry. For me, this is a very timely piece of information as I was very recently making some enquiry as the the identity of "81". Is this maker regarded as unusual or unique in any particular way that you know of? Regards. Paul

    Lubstein is better known to most as Erel, of course. What is unusual is this cap has a grey or silver lining, whereas the earlier ones were generally custard or yellowish colored satin or rayon.
    damit, basta.

    wonder which time frame this style fits in, original for sure but I was never in the taste of them.
    Even hard to find anyhow.

    Yes, a rare variation that makes one wonder how Erel earned its reputation for craftsmanship and quality! A friend of mine has one just like this but for an officer, which is the only one I've seen...

    I believe this cap was among the last black caps made.
    damit, basta.

    The Lubstein black enlisted SS caps are not made in the manner of the Sonderklasse army caps, or grey SS officer caps.
    damit, basta.

ID:	452958This is a Weissbach of Glachau/Sachsen variant of this type of Sonderanfertigung. This photo courtesy of Bruce Herman. Certain savants declaim this kind of cap to be a fake, which reflects rather poorly on their understanding of the material. In fact, such black caps were made through 1940, apparently, and then never issued or sold. The UM adverts of the mid war period refer to these caps expressly, if one looks closely. Moreover, photos of shop windows illustrate them, as well. I enclose the price list entries from 1934 and 1939 which describe this type of cap.
