A fairly rare double decal Luftwaffe fiber parade helmet utilized by officers because of its light weight. Both sides of the liner marked "Fiber-Helm"' and "EreL Berlin". Has some small words above this that I cannot read. Unfortunately, the Luftwaffe eagle has had the swastika removed, but with part of the outline still present. The remainder of the eagle is about 90%. The shield is also about 90% present. The helmet shape itself is in near excellent condition with its paint about 90%, except for the metal rim which has about 40% paint. An area below the eagle, about 1 1/2" above the rim, has some darkening. The liner has the size 59 1/2 and shows very little use. The chin strap is intact, but much of the grey/blue finish is gone. Some suggested putting on the swastika from a repo decal, but I will leave that endeavor to a later owner should he so desire. Not that ever I looked for them, but this is only the second fiber helmet that I have owned in my many years of collecting. Hig
Afrika Corps sidecap with factory-sewn eagle, cockade and light green soutach. This color was initially for Motorcycle and Bicycle Troops, and later for Panzergrenadier. As this cap is 1941 dated, I would relegate it to the former. It is a size 57 and maker marked "F. Weissbach Glauchau E.41". Cap appears un-used. Excellent
2nd Pattern RLB aluminum silver-grey painted buckle with the "LUFTSCHUTZ" winged emblem. Has about 93% paint intact on the front, and the un-marked reverse has almost totally turned a dark grey. Very Good
Political Leader's Gold buckle with an un-marked wide brown leather belt. Buckle has some light wear to highlights on front and a few small spots of missing finish on reverse. Buckle marked with an RZM and maker's code "M4/27". Belt has slides, sewn-on keeper, and apart from needing some polish, without issue. Very Good
Prussian State Forestry Service Officer's buckle with a silver finish over a bronze base. An un-marked buckle with both keepers. Features a Prussian eagle with a swastika on its chest, and clutching a sword in its right talon and two lightening flashes in its left talon. Front shows very light wear, but reverse shows much of the silver finish is gone. Very Good
Water Police EM/NCO gilded pebbled steel buckle with a 1943 dated leather tab stamped with maker "C.T.H. Dicke" located in Ludenshield. Has about 90% exterior finish, and where most of it is missing is on the lower edge. From my experience, one of the more difficult Police buckles to acquired. Very Good
Italo-German Campaign Medal for Africa. This medal is the initial 1942 solid bronze strike, as opposed to the two follow-on variants which were not solid bronze. Marked for the Milano maker "loreoli". Excellent
