    Here is the bally hoo that goes with the cap. I just bought a Mercedes Jahreswagen, so someone else can give this cap a suitable home.

    QUOTE Unissued Waffen SS officer visor cap in stunningly STONE MINT condition, coming with the original stuffing paper, size 58. This is the same cap that is on the cover (and the back cover) of the so-called "bible of WWII German cloth headgear "- THE COLLECTOR'S GUIDE TO CLOTH THIRD REICH MILITARY HEADGEAR by Gary Wilkins. In addition to the cover, this visor cap was also featured on page 51, 69 and 85 of the book.
    The cap was purchased from Mr. Bill Shea in 2000 and it has been in my collection since and very well-preserved. Absolutely stunning, no sign of moth tracking or anything, completely stone mint. Argubaly the best-conditioned Waffen SS officer visor cap out there.

ID:	499555The cap in China is of note for its Duffel or Eskimo cap cover, which was more used in enlisted caps.....Mine is the same. Bob Hritz owns a similar cap, and others have appeared.

    Truth be told, they are all well and good, but I would rather spend money on a cap like this:

    In collecting, we all have what we like and avoid. I have always preferred the quality of the private purchase cap

    An example of a typical mid war cap available through the SS uniform supply. Note the lack of a sweat shield. This cap was part of a uniform group left at home by a junior officer in Totenkopf.

    Bob's collection is the foundation upon which Adrian and he have constructed this site from the ruins of the others. Many thanks and happy hats and even happier foot notes......
