    Needless to say, in 1971, there were few resources to ascertain facts about this material. The images in Mollo were about it, as was the pioneer article by Delich
    and the Bozich book of Coleman's collection.

    Although I still am not qualified to contribute in any meaningful way on the subject of these caps. I really have learned so much over the last couple of years just looking at your fine collection and reading your threads.

    Some day, some how I hope to be able to own one.

    Thanks FB!

    My first black SS cap, ca. 1971.My first black SS cap, ca. 1971.Thanks very much. I just found this old image again which I scanned, and since I just read Shea's book on his collecting career, I mention it.
    Shea is eight years my senior, but he and I encountered our first Nazi regalia within two years of each other, it seems, he in 1959 and I in 1961.
    It then took a while to be able to secure this kind of cap at age eighteen, of course, since I was all of eight ripe years of age in 1961 when I got my first object an EK 1,
    which I still have and then a black wound badge.
    No one could dream of what this all has become, to be sure.
    Thanks for the kind words.
    I throttled back with this stuff last year, but this year started with a shocking find, which I enclose here.
    Much good fortune in your collecting.

I am glad it has some merit for you. It is not something we see very often other than in the images
    of the epoch in which this cap was worn. We see the lousy imitation in hundreds of fakes.

    PS the loose badge is in no way associated wit this senior leader cap, save for it is of the same epoch, sort of.
