Hi all
Can anyone help with the below email from a friend of mine? I have no idea with this subject!

Hi Simon, I'm wondering if you can help me. Believe it or not I have a waffen ss maroon fez as worn by the muslim 13th waffen mountain division of the ss Handschar. It has the eagle on swastika and deaths head insignia. My grandfather bought it back from ww 2. Would you know if it has any worth.

Photo should hopefully be attached!

Wehrmacht Awards is the place to ask. If it has provenance and depending on the buoyancy of the collector market in these cash-strapped times, you may be looking at the high hundreds, maybe more.

It may be the picture, but it looks very red compared to the maroon colored originals I've seen. As sais, the experts on WA will give chapter and verse on it.
