    The black cap is a Lubstein of later make, ca. 1939 or 1940...I think.

    Usually the Sonderanfertigung for the NCO and enlisted ranks have the golden runics, but never say never with any of this material.

    Our friend Texas ueber alles also has one of these caps with a silver lining and grey or black stamped runics.
    damit, basta.

    Here is one such example that is a departure from the norm...

    Als die Nazis die Kommunisten holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Kommunist.
    Als sie die Sozialdemokraten einsperrten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Sozialdemokrat.
    Als sie die Gewerkschafter holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Gewerkschafter.
    Als sie die Juden holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Jude.
    Als sie mich holten, gab es keinen mehr, der protestieren konnte.

    A late make of the Mueller Sonderanfertigung. Certain ding bats asserted said cap was fake, but what do they know?

    I have an earlier cap with the same variant of golden runics.

    Variety is always intriguing.

    You have wisely said a multitude of times that it takes living with these things, close comparison with a loupe, and, of course, Fingerspitzengefühl. The variations are numerous, but the central theme of materials and craftsmanship remains fairly constant. These are things that one must keep in mind to be successful at this. Thanks for your kind aid, as always.

    You took the words out of my mouth, F-B- these late Sonderanfertigung caps are often condemned as fakes! I'm waiting to find one for sale as such

    Thank you, dear friend. There was much misinformation and or disinformation or just good ole' psyops on the other site to this effect, and it was total drivel.

    The first black cap I got ca. 1971 or so was just such a Mueller Sonderanfertigung, but not identical to Dr. CMH's. but similar.

    There are those with the silver grey interior ala the Lubstein or the Weissbach/Glachau i. Sachsen that are routinely dismissed.

    What I do not understand is why the Sonderanfertigung for the officers was phased out rather early and the other was retained into 1940 or so.

    I shall never know, and the main thing is the skilled collector can ascertain authenticity without the sound and fury of the peanut gallery.

    Thanks, colleagues, for all your fine work here.

    Excellent thread, Gentleman--it should probably be pinned due to the amount of mis- and dis-information on these caps.
