    yeah I am really asking if the random photo I found on the net is the same guy as the guy Sam posted. They both wear a similar shaped visor without a chin strap, a DRL in silver, and a ribbon bar mounted to the left of the pocket on the chest.

    You also want to get the man's Stammrollenkarte and measure the size of the cap. If the two are the same, then you can be fairly certain about your purchase.

    If he had a 54 cm head and the cap is 59 cms in size, then there are questions to be answered.

    That is, the key piece of data in the personnel file is called the Stammrollenkarte, which usually has the man's measurements.
    damit, basta.

    The two men in the photos are not the same person.
    true, Eicke died Feb. 26, 43 and the division formed after. Sam's guy died Feb. 4, 1942 so they can't be the same person.

    maybe the guy with the Eicke cuff title borrowed the cap from his fallen brother

    The use of any army cap by the Waffen SS is well documented. Mollo makes the point, and did so in the year 1973.

    This came from v Lukacs in Sweden, did it not? He finds a lot of SS headgear.

    Does your data contain his career throughout until 1945? The letter from the Bundesarchiv only included the data from the Rasse und Siedlungshauptamt.

    There should be his personnel file somewhere..... That it is not in Lichterfelde is a bad sign.

    However, if he died in battle, then the Deutsche Diensstelle must have a file on him. Your archivist said as much in the letter from 2013.

    I noticed that too; all of the Grünheid material - including the award documents with the full name - is erroneously captioned as being for Hunger.

    Another photo of the man can be found here:
