    Hello everyone,

    I was wondering, in January of 1933, what visors did the SS Allgemeine wear? Peak, saddle, etc? Insignia? Hope you can help. Cheers!

ID:	484807Here are SS caps of an early date.

    In the year 1933, of course, a large fraction of the SS still wore the kepi as opposed to this peaked cap.
    damit, basta.

    Often such caps have a plate shape, with a short crown, and often a leather peak.
    The examples I have enclosed show these traits, but the SS Gruppe West cap actually has a fairly tall crown.
    damit, basta.

ID:	484822The crown could have the saddle shape or not, but many of the earlier caps are lower, surely, than the later variants.

ID:	484823This cap, formerly of Mollo and our Mr. d'Alquen actually has a tall crown.

    The Saris book on the NSDAP makes clear the evolution of this kind of cap which was patterned on the officer's field cap of the old army (what is called by the masses a "crusher....") and as time passed from 1933 to 1934, the decision was taken to take the crush out of the thing and give it a garrison appearance via wires and gauze and bunting, pp.
    Such is clearly detailed in the RZM circulars.....
    Saris also describes how these caps changed each year in the years 1933 until 1939 or so.....
    damit, basta.

ID:	484834I am sure that my colleagues have more insightful things to say about it all.
    I believe that the RZM tags and runic marks and such emerged in the course of 1934, that is, the cap we associate with the SS.
    damit, basta.

    I think FB has clearly covered the subject and answered your question. There is nothing more that I can add in a general nature.
