Thank you Bob. There were a couple other members that were also wondering about Robert H. So I'm sure they are also grateful for your reply.
Once again Thank You
I found his site via Google. I must have registered on there some time ago and forgotten as I was already registered. Unfortunately, the cap is not listed. I was curious to see what the price tag was (a lot, I'm sure )
Here you go. ...
3600 Euro incl. postal fees.
Payment by bank transfer, cash or Paypal
(all PP fees = buyer)
Postscriptum. I have paid more, in fact, so this is a modest price.
At that price it wont stay long...And thats another point,someones tries to cast doubt on a beautiful piece of history, that the owner is selling for a more than reasonable price...Then you have some dealers out there who would sell this hat for double that (I wont mention names) ..If anyone wants to start on their so called "high end" SS collecting this would be your chance to break into, at a certified piece and reasonable price
and I can vouch for the thing's provenance. And it also has the man's name in it with the unit designation.
Happy hats to you all.
I did not think my intemperate outburst would solicit such a response.
Your "outburst" (which I think prefer to think of as a strong defense of a friend and visor) are more than welcome for all the knowledge that you so kindly dispense to all of us here!!
While I haven't dipped my toe into this area yet (I want to learn and study more as often recommended by our fine colleagues here), like Todd, I too had the "wheels turning" in my head. But atlas, it does not seem to be listed anymore....
My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
