I've seen one like this (or maybe the same one) years ago offered and I couldn't decide whether it was possibly a prewar design that was modified for postwar sales or ? It seems obvious that this...

It looks fine to me except the way the Tresse is sewn as noted by Wim. Can you measure the width of the Tresse? It looks like it could be LW/WSS shoulder board or collar Tresse. It appears to have...

I don't see any reason that it couldn't be a period piece. It could have been made as a school or shop project or by a hobbyist. Copper relief works were a popular pastime

I would agree. What I can't tell from these photos is whether or not the eagle shows corrosion that was subsequently wire-brushed and then painted over. If that is the case, it could be original in...

I don't recall exactly, but they were listed for sale or auctioned for more than I wanted to pay. I believe the listing prices were between $250-300.00. What they actually sold for would only be...

The Feldherrnhalle runic insignia to me lacks the sharply defined edges of originals I've owned and seen. Perhaps it's a later zinc alloy but, at least from this image, I'm not sure about it. The...

IMO Nazi Kitsch. I've seen one or two other early supporters' neckties that were different but with the same party badge theme. Nice! Don't spill any soup on it if you wear it to a restaurant!

The front stiffener could be removed but I wouldn't recommend doing that. Once you start taking the cap apart, you might find that it still won't take the shape you want, and it will be difficult...

You can try bending the cap spring at the highest point of the crown--if you bend it at the angle you want (basically making it form a 90 degree angle) it might help to shape the top. If the padding...

Ley did have a minor speech impediment that sounded similar to the slurred speech of someone with a 'snootful'. He may or may not have had an alcohol problem, but he did sound like someone with one. ...
