Hello all,

Now I know the SS insignia is dodgy to say the least, but did this cap ever start life as anything legit or is it just a complete ground-up fake?

On my screen I see gold piping . But in what unlikely situation would a WH general officer ever have been converted to SS .. ?
With a machine-stitched eagle that is accepted as an original .. ?

The eagle is extremely rare, original SS

Here's a link to an identical skull .. http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru...d.php?t=797566

Cheers, Ian.

Ian,

I have posted in that thread as well. The soutache on the cap glows under a black light so the cap is a reproduction.

Are there any other authentic, period caps with this exact style of eagle applied?
