Pascal, what a very nice 'little family' you have
"In all my years as a soldier, I have never seen men fight so hard." - SS Obergruppenfuhrer Wilhelm Bittrich - Arnhem
sweet could we please see some up close and personal shots pascal?
Bravo. You are a man of fine taste and judicious collecting. Well done. If you want to sell the early cap, i.e. with the 1927/9 Hoheitszeichen, please let me know.
Very nice piece, indeed. I am not expert in the 1927/9 badge, but it looks ok to me. These are not especially rare, and they are faked, but this piece is ok from your image. The only issue might be if this is the same badge as was on the cap in 1935 or so....but such is really a minor point.
Do not take off the cap badges, as they only get wrecked.
You have a nice collection, which is no surprise to be sure. vielen Dank!
See this piece, a cousin of yours.
It is of the Fa. Breiter, Muenchen, and was owned by some Professor Dr. in the SS, who likely performed medical experiments, promulgated racial theories, otherwise generated a huge pile of racist bullsh!t and finally would be deeply distressed to know that I have his silly hat. So there.....it is a nice hat, though. Doctors, medical and otherwise, were a highly over represented profession in the ranks of the SS.
PS I have shown this image two hundred times, but it counteracts all the junk on these sites. Thanks to Pascal Bernhard for raising the level here. The fake skull threads are always a huge let down when one fires up the computer. They are akin to athlete's foot or herpes.
PSS The owner of this cap was " Dr. Helmuth Gesler" and I have not done any further research into his life and times, actually. I will happily sell it for no less than twenty thousand four hundred and fifty dollars and five and a half cents.
Very nice piece and this is exactly how an SS cap badge should look, which is to say, it should be attached to a cap...
Someone polished this piece, though, but it is still real and very nice. The fact it is so marked is also a sign of its originality to the cap in hand.
Bravo. It is so much nicer to see these things than all the junk, and I mean real junk that pops up here and there each day.
