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...

I'll admit that if I had seen this armband in a case at a show, I would have walked by it thinking it was a fantasy piece.
Somewhat odd stretched eagle, lettering uneven in a spot with a spacing...

Very neat! I've got one (different style and maker) and have seen one other that was also different, but never saw this pattern.

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. ...

The upside down armband probably explains the Führer's 'Ley, I can't take you anywhere!' expression.

It looks like an under the tunic shirt for the SA, so it would be more a dress shirt than a work shirt. The standard regulation shirts had removable collars like this one, and the 'SA' on the...

If the leader continued in the SA past 1940, this configuration of flap piping of aluminum would be correct for the period (if he bothered to remove the old 2 color piping).

30% commission is higher than I'm used to paying, but I think the total price was not unfair for a scarce kepi. The wrinkles in the top could be due to the way it fit on the original wearer's head...

A "Stammtisch" is a reserved table--usually at a tavern, beer hall, or bar so the 'regulars' who come in every week or more often have their place reserved. A usually somewhat fancy stand with a...

Interesting! I don't doubt your expertise--I guess all of the S/H's I've seen were cheaper versions originally--I'm pretty sure I don't remember seeing a bronze by this maker, but only the bronze...

Agree--the base looks misshapen, and the Schmidt-Hofer busts that I've seen and owned were always hollow with the name on the rectangular base, upper side, at the rear.

The Standartenführer Tresse looks good from these photos, and that is not easy to find. I was concerned because of what looks like creases to the top in front as though the top oval was sewn to the...

I would still say political leader based on the color. One other thing to look for--although not present on every tunic, is there a provision for a dagger clip under the left hip pocket flap? If so,...

I don't know if anyone knows if it would be for the commander only or the command staff, but it is a scarce band. I also have seen 3 at least. The band on the GDC site, by the way, may not be an...
