    Well done, Anders, and you have made a killing.

    Now you can buy the pieces on the Shea and Jenkins sites at the market price to reinforce your collection.



    You can justly be proud, and, you belong to the small number of people who actually own authentic grey SS peaked caps, in contrast to the sad, benighted and other befuddled multitude of owners of fake grey SS headwear.

    Finally, one signal attribute of much authentic grey SS headwear is that since 1945 it lost its original cap badges. If anything, such is a further sign of authenticity for collectors with some experience of the material.
    damit, basta.

    I asked Bill Shea, whom I consider to be a friend, to take a look at the same photos you've seen in this thread, Here's his feedback which I was more than welcome to use, and I quote;

    "I have looked at the pictures of your fine looking W-SS officer's visor cap and I am pleased to say it's absolutely an original example. In fact for a moment I thought I was seeing double and you will not believe this dejavous. Today in the mail I recieved a W-SS officer's visor cap from a collector in the UK. I was quite familiar with this particular cap because I have owned it before. In fact it is the exact cap pictured on page 14 of Volume 6 of Uniforms of the SS by Andrew Mollo published back in 1972. Well guess one, yours is identical with mine and undoubtedly made by the same maker. Congratulations on your fine score."

    I would also like to mention that "The Collector's Guide to the Distinctive Cloth Headgear of the Allgemeine and Waffen-SS" by Michael Beaver with William Shea is now available on The Ruptured Duck

    I am glad this fine hat found it's way to Anders. It is always wonderful to see a collector find a treasure without having to mortgage his eyes to pay for it.

    Congratulations on a wonderful find!

    Anders, your piece is similar to this ( with origins in Wien), which I sold. It cost originally considerably more your than yours, and I sold it for more, too. The Totenschaedel was bum, though. The interior was of the same make, though it had a leather sweat band.

    further images once the Totenschaedel was replaced. This cap came from Wien to the Pacific Coast, thence to the UK.

    Once more congratulations and we celebrate your bank balance, too.
