I collect images as much as I collect caps, and you should do the same if you seriously want to distinguish good from bad.[/QUOTE]
I concur. A good practice.
The patent numbers changed in the course of time, as the forehead pressure arrangement was adapted and improved. I think.

Please compare to an original Assmann ( in this case the rare aluminum version , still on a visor of NBolinger ) .
Note difference in eye shape , the sutures on the temple are much too crude & also wrong in shape , the area between the right hand crossbones lacks the typical striped area , etc.
Thank you. I was looking for exactly this expertise. As you write, no scarcity to find real SS caps with fake insignia. These caps were often denazified, and then not re-nazified properly.
