WWII German Second Model SS Fez-This interesting piece of headgear is produced in dark red wool that is excellent, having minor tracking in a few spots. The fez was worn by certain ethnic groups assisting the SS in the war effort. The red versions were worn with the dress and parade uniform. The pig’s tail is red wool as well, and the black rayon tassels are present. The tassels are not stitched down to the cap. The front of the cap has a machine woven BeVo SS eagle in a silver/grey cloth on a black background. The totenkopf is of like construction and color. Both have been hand applied to the cap with a black cloth thread. Inside, the thread is also black. There is minor damage/wear to the skull. The unlined interior is fine with the brown leather sweatband remaining soft and supple. The size is ink stamped onto the interior, 57. Near excellent!
