Enlisted overseas cap with Calvary soutach. A splendid example of an early war quality enlisted overseas cap with hand-sewn insignia. Liner is marked "G. Bender Stockach", and 1941 dated with a size 59. Forehead area of liner shows some very light sweat stains, otherwise without any issues. Excellent
Red Cross light-weight double vent helmet that was originally made to be a fireman's helmet. Still retains the helmet interior pad, the leather projections for attaching the leather neck shield, and the unique fire helmet chin strap. No evidence of this helmet ever having a black finish or of the liner having been removed for interior re-paint. This appears to be a factory paint and decal application. The clean liner still has its original tie, stamped with the size 55, and an ink 31. Helmet shows little use, with the paint about 90% and the decal near 100%. Inside skirt stamped with a company logo and "Vorschriftsmassig lt. Gesetz 3.5.34". Overall, a close to mint helmet. Excellent
Luftschutz Gladiator helmet about a size 58, and complete with chinstrap and liner. Paint is about 97% and decal about 90%. Liner is complete and clean with the exception of some sweat stains on front and right side. Attaching string for liner segments is broken with just about four inches still present, and segment ends un-attached to each other. Number 408 stamped inside rear skirt. A nice clean example. Low Excellent.
Aircraft industry Badge of Merit in Silver for Meritorious Achievement. This was only in a stickpin form, and for civilians, as it was intended for wear on their clothing. It is 25mm high and about 17mm in with. The design is a perched eagle with a "T" crossed by a wolfsangle on its chest, and clutching a white enamel shield with a black swastika. The reverse is marked "Ges. Gesch" (patent Pending). Excellent
Customs Service Badge authorized by the Reichs Finance Administration. Stamped gold colored metal oval shield with the impressed number 8206. This shield was worn either sewn-on a green armband, or sewn directly on to the tunic upper sleeve, and was the individual's badge of authority. About 2 1/2" x 3 1/4". Excellent
Unusual, thick, gold colored plak showing a mountain range in high relief. Wording translates, Motor Vehicle Winter Testing 1937. Flanked by a swastika on either side is the word "ons", which I don't know the meaning. Plak is a little over 3" in diameter and 5mm thick. Reverse has logo and name for the quality maker, "Lauer". I have had and seen a lot of plaks over my collecting years, but this is the first time for this one. Could this be winter testing for their planning about eventually heading East? Low Excellent

Has penciled written name initials "E.N." and penciled numbers on skirt. This is a helmet that has "been there". Good
Luftwaffe Pilot/Observer Badge of un-marked construction. Wreath gilding has some minor age fading, and eagle's powdered silver finish has some darkening. An honest guaranteed original at a fair price. Very Good
