    Yes, indeed, which I why I enclosed these things. The NSDAP kepi was mine, and it now resides in the wonderful Coleman collection.
    The black cap is mine.


    Here is an Ehrenwinkel in silver wire. That is, not Alu wire. Photo courtesy of Jenkins.

    Happy ephemera to you all. Arcane unknown unknowns to gladden the hearts of those who should care more about tweets and twerks but cannot.

    The silver wire insignia was, of course, a feature of the old army and of the Reichswehr, but was rendered obsolete by the alu. wire, which was easier to care for and evoked the streamlined, art deco aesthetic
    ideal of technology and aviation and such....!

    Aluminum was the rage in the 1930s.

    It also disintegrates over time, truth be told, whereas the silver wire tarnishes and has a pleasing patina.

    The alu. wire gets moist and turns to an awful white powder, which vanishes in a sneeze.
    damit, basta.
