    I was not going to mention this fact, myself, since I am sick and tired of all these fights. There are two choices here: either the RZM sent out a tag
    with the same number, or the new cap is a very well made fake.....I cannot tell, but the I have the same image of the Schlienitz tag in an officer's black cap,
    as in the picture on the right. The cap is owned by a collector in the US Midwest, or was owned by same some years ago. It is a real cap.

    To remind persons, the serial number at the bottom of the tag is stamped at the source by the RZM.

    You can easily tell if the ink stamp is done properly. That is, it is stamped on the existing tag.....

    If the numbers are printed along with the tag itself, then I would be chary of such an item.

    All of this can be determined in hand along with other known real items, which is what I do.

    I do not really trust 100% these electro pictures as an end in themselves.

    I own more than fifty SS caps and they are the measure of all things.

    Since I am not on facebook, but otherwise spend untold hours in a non pay status to share from my collection worth more than the average US automobile, and or
    whatever, what is this price? Also, I am unpaid to endure ongoing assaults on knowledge, wisdom, and sensible historical analysis, I would like to know.
    It's better for your soul that you avoid it. The hobby-based groups on Facebook can be filled with an unhealthy amount of ignorance, ill-manners, and neo-nazism. I understand our fellow member who started the other posting has just secured this visor. Asking price of 3900 USD.

    Thank you, friend, and you're a champ. USD 4000 is a sound price for the cap, if it is real. A shadow of a doubt adheres, because of the coincidence of the tag.
    I would have to compare the tag and the whole cap to others. I always worry that our very detailed posts will allow the already sophisticated black cap fakes to a
    advance to the next level.

    My paranoia is not edifying. A cap made in 1937 simply betrays its age, even when in superb shape.

    Interesting detective work MM1985. Do your files contain information about the cap that has the duplicate RZM tag?

Size:  55.0 KBHere is the cap, in pictures from the last decade, whence appeared the first RZM tag with the # 048390. These images are from the year 2007.
    This item in said year was in an advanced collection.
