    To lend a concrete example to the generalization I offer above, elsewhere on this site, a member here wrongly suggests that the bulk of German caps were made in an industrial manner. Perhaps in quantitative terms this might have been the case; but, in reality, there existed thousands of handicraft cap makers, whose licenses from the RZM in the era 1934-1935 were in a state of flux. That is, such licenses were granted by the NSDAP RZM and then revoked for whatever reason. These handicraft firms are much more interesting to me, at least, among whom was Mueller, who made many black SS caps, despite its being a handicraft operation.
    The guild dimension of this reality does not get sufficient analysis, not the least because certain American collectors have no idea about German society and economy, to say nothing of culture. I am a US American, so I can generalize this way. Without an understanding of society and economy, one can seldom penetrate the deeper character of this regalia, not the least to detect fakes, which is not my goal here at all. My goal is to understand "wie es eigentlich gewesen," in the most sublime sense. I have wanted to read these RZM circulars for more than forty years, and now I am able to do so and happily share the results with you here. Thanks for your collaboration in this globalized and digital attempt at "wie es eigentlich gewesen..." in the sense of von Ranke.Click image for larger version.

    "39,35 Verdict

    In the name of the German People!

    Penal Case

    vs. the merchant Moritz Schwarzschild, born 1 November 1872 at Stuttgart, place of residence at Berlin-Charlottenburg, Leibnitzstraße 58, for an offense against § 5 subparagraphs 1, 3, 4, 5, 6 of the Law of 20 December 1934.

    For an offense against § 5 subparagraph 1 of the
    Law against Malignant Attacks against the State and the Party and for the Protection of Party Uniforms [Gesetz gegen heimtückische Angriffe auf Staat und Partei und zum Schutz der Parteiuniformen] of 20 December 1934, instead of the principally incurred prison sentence of 1 -one- month, the defendant is sentenced to a fine of 300 -three hundred- Reichsmarks and the costs of the legal proceedings.

    The impounded

    102 SS-canteen covers
    776 SA- and PO*)-canteen covers

    (The ivory-colored cuff title being for honorary officers.)

    Oddly, the cuff title for the SS Equestrian School at Forst is given as SS-Reiterschule Forst [= SS-Riders' School Forst] rather than SS-Reitschule Forst [= SS-Riding School Forst], which was the school's proper name.

    The collar patches for the equestrian and signals Stammabteilungen are of particular interest here.

    All references that I am aware of describe the collar patches of the Stammabteilungen as having a district [Bezirk] number corresponding to that of the appropriate Fußstandarte (no additional devices) and that is the only pattern I have ever seen in period photographs or in images of original uniforms or insignia. I must admit I have never heard of "specialist" Stammabteilung formations and insignia before!

    I wouldn't be surprised if d'Alquen had more data on the subject, but it is certainly a little-known one and one which isn't in the standard references like Mollo, Angolia etc.

    More rules and regulations...:



    "29,35 SS Tricot Caps

    It is estimated that delivery of SS tricot caps can only be undertaken in some 2 to 3 weeks time. Existing stocks of cloth caps will have to be used up first.


    30,35 Made-to-measure tailoring
    A delivery period of 8 days is required for made-to-measure items. Appointing an earlier date is futile.


    31,35 Order Dates
    Due to the volume of mail that is to be proceeded, a delivery period of at least days is demanded. Orders with earlier appointed dates will be immediately proceeded and sent by express courier at the orderer's expense.


    32,35 Order Cards
    Instead of the red retail outlet cards, from now on the green order cards (previously only intended for tailoring) shall be universally used."
