Waffen SS Panzer sidecap with pink soutache

    Hard one to judge 100% just by digital images alone. An " in hand " inspection would obviously be the best method, IMO.
    To me, the cap was seldom worn and maybe the original owner preferred an alternative head cover during his military service,we all know this occurred quite frequently. The lack of fading to the SS insignia doesn't really conflict with the color of the cap itself, they appear uniform from where I sit. The soutache doesn't send any obvious red flags to me either.

    The overall feeling I get from this piece is leaning toward it being good as far as period, but please don't make any drastic decisions based on my opinion or a single persons opinions alone either, because in the end it's up to you and the feeling you have, based on your knowledge of the subject. Gut feeling is good and can be helpful but I wouldn't rely on that in itself , but if everything fits with what you know AND you get that gut feeling or intuition, this certainly helps!

    I know you have much knowledge in the field of the W-SS, but even the best of us can get duped! Let some of the seasoned experts chime in and maybe then you can weigh the end result, I guess.

    I wish you the best of luck, friend
    Dean.

    From the pix it looks like the soutache is handsewn. Can't comment about the rest because the pix are bad.

    ago...but nothing !!! So...I have traded it for other ss items..

    IMO this depend from different militaria sites:you can find a bevo skull in good cond.for 6-750 usd (or 650 e. in some european site) ...same for the capeagles ss: from 350usd to...3-400e. (minty).
    I think that 1800 usd for a panzer ss sidehat textbook in good used cond. is a correct price.
