    I only began collecting about 7 years ago and my first black enlisted cap cost £800, a staggering sum for me!

    Arthur's hat is very tempting...

    Beautiful cap, too bad the visor is a little loose. Anyway, personally the grey ones are much more appealing than the black ones.. :-p

ID:	250866Clemens Wagner caps of this date and make often have loose bands and peaks, not the least because collectors beat the hell out of them.
    As to the respective colors of SS caps, any authentic SS officer cap, be it grey or black, is valuable.
    Others here are free to share their treasures with us, nicht wahr?

    Nice collection of pictures, Herr FB. I will say though that black Allgemeine SS officer visors are much rarer than grey Waffen SS officer visor caps (which seem to all of sudden have popped up everwhere) these days, despite my preference of the latter. :-)

    . . . I purchased my first black officer cap in the mid 60's for $75.00. . . .
    For a frame of reference that factors in inflation, $75 in the mid 1960's is roughly equivalent to $500 in today's US dollars. So still a whopping increase in market value.

    Cheers,

I detest the phrase "textbook," as no thing really existed in real life, but for those who follow collector taste, this is a not insignificant object. Attachment 250009Attachment 250010

    I have no commercial interest in this object, to be sure, and this item is illustrated in various books. It was made by Clemens Wagner ca. 1938 or 1939. The cap is for sale on the ding bat maroon website.
    Nice original unissued cap, but... unfortunately a lot of mothings on the pipings...

    Hello: Have referenced this cap to be a Algemeine SS Generals cap due to silver piping to top as shown in photo's. Have had this cap myself for the last 17 years which was passsed on to me by a neighbour who collected militaria. Have had many collectors look at it in hand and all have agreed it is 100%, but would like to also have other peoples advice on this. Is it 100% to you? I know these are reproduced but cap does show honest wear, slight moth damage to right side. Military friends have told me that if this is what they say, SS Algemeine General visor caps the skies the limit for price. I am planning on selling this item soon, but would certainly not wish to rip anyone off. All advice would be greatly appreciated for I myself am a WW2 Canadian collector, not a German. And would certainly be open to all offers. Please let me know. Thank you. Richard.
