    The first cap (left screen) I secured in 1971 for USD 125. It was a Mueller Sonderanfertigung.


    Pi pa po. SS caps in the 1970s.

    I secured again two of the three black SS officers caps pictured here, one of which is silken.

    The middle enlisted cap I also bought back, and it now resides in Belgium having made its way from Los Angeles to Stockholm to Bruxelles or Antwerp. Go figure.

    In the retrospective, there is less of this stuff than I thought, and also much more than I dreamed possible.

    Perhaps these pictures mean something subtle and arcane.

    Thanks. The main thing is what I presently own all find an adequate home when the time is right. And that these things be well preserved and kept out of mischievous hands. No easy prospect. In fact, in my experience, a lot of the stuff in the CONUS is making its way overseas, as new centers of wealth emerge as well as constant interest in contemporary history. I make no value judgment here, just a statement of fact. My hope would be for my collection to go as a unit to Germany, where it belongs most, and where such things do not exist in museums I have seen at all. Rather, there are frequently fakes on display. How droll.

    In any case, I am sure you shall and your record will eclipse ours. The endeavor takes huge effort, though, and seems difficult to sustain over years, to say nothing of decades. The rate of attrition is high.

    Thank you Friedrich, I try my Best. You are an inspiration and a marvelous teacher of foetid woolens.

    Thanks again for showing your first cap.

I had forgotten that I even had this primitive black and white photo, but your note jarred my memory.

    The marvelous thing about being young is the range of hope and possibilities that stretch out into the blue horizon.

    The ambivalent thing about the resume of a life lived is how things loom far too large versus those same hopes and possibilities, once the latter are collapsed by reality.

And for good measure, an image of Hans Holbein and Rethel.....

    I cant comment on that post, as I am sure in order to comment I would have to have learned from experience. And I am only at the hopes and dreams stage.
