A couple of fellow collectors asked me to add this section on SS Trapezoid cap insignia. I only own one SS Panzer cap with a Trapezoid (which I have noted below) so the other photos I've had to borrow from some of the militaria forums. Not all the styles are shown here as yet but these are the most common. There are some other variations of machine embroidered Trapezoids and at least one other Bevo design not pictured below. There are some fairly close fakes of some of these so you need to look closely at the details. No SS Trapezoid was ever done in aluminum wire.

Many of these piano brand names are "stencil pianos", which means that the company which owns the brand name is simply applying the name to a piano manufactured for them by another company, and that the same or very similar pianos are sold under differing "stencil" brands. This often applies to old brand names, revitalized to give an air of heritage to a new piano line, or to pianos manufactured specifically for individual dealers or shops. Also, some brand names have models that are manufactured in entirely different manufacturing plants or countries than another model of the same brand.
