It's bad. All separate cap eagles after the triangular SS-VT/TV version were BeVo machine-woven not machine-embroidered.

Hi Ian,


Thank you for your opinion.


Is there a possibility, that there were exceptions? Maybe a foreign production?

Regards,

Guido

Can't comment on the cap, but with regards to the eagle I can only agree with Ian. Doesn't look right to me.

Your all wrong! This is a rare Belgium eagle. Bob H had one at the SOS last year. There is a old thread about this eagle where a guy had three mounted to a wood board. Keep digging for the thread, it's there and Bob might be able to comment too.

Awesome eagle!

Hello and thank for your help.



That it could be a rare Belgian variant of an SS cap eagle, sounds very interesting.


Maybe Bob can say something about it when he reads this.

Maybe someone has the old thread for me? That would be nice.


Here are more pictures of the complete cap.


Thanks for any help,


Guido

I have found two of these cap eagles in 55 years of collecting SS insignia. The threads, wool, and bobbin thread all are comparable with original WW2 produced insignia. I believe they are original and rare, but I do not know if a small German made run of this insignia or foreign made. Materials match German made SS insignia.

I've only seen one in hand was a light grey but the others were a darker-light grey thread. Does the bird look like it might have some grey and the pictures are making it look a little lighter?

The eagle on the cap is grey thread. I think the pictures make it a little lighter.
