The case is just a repro and not included.

It has the original eagle and wreath applied with a few large stitches as is usual on these caps. No signs of previous insignia.
Cap shows honest wear and the visor is starting to come loose in one side. Also it could do with a bit of reshaping. But apart from this, it is free of mothing and other visible damage, and could easily be improved with a bit of TLC.
|Well worn but fully complete example with both labels and full length cable.|
|Overall in excellent condition, with label, full length cable and fully intact mesh.|
Front leather headband appears to have been period resized for a tighter fit.
|These boots look like they where never issued, since the soles are mint!|
They are of the type normally with heating plugs, but on these they where either removed or never installed.
Also looking at the way the lining ends at the top of the boot shafts, it appears they are very slightly mismatched. All hardware, materials and colors are still fully matching though making for an attractive 99% matching pair.
|A fine example of the rare and sought after blue light weight flight jacket - often seen on photos of fighter pilots, but very hard to find today.|

|This is a super nice set in excellent condition.|

The textbook OM case is likewise in very fine condition with a fully functional closing mechanism.

The big purple velvet collar is in perfect condition and retains both closing straps.

This one is for the not so often seen rank of Spiess.

On the right breast is a nice hand applied officer's eagle.
The collar tabs are also hand applied and show signs of at least one promotion. So does the shoulder boards. Under one board we f..

It comes with an expertise from Militaria-Berlin stating a value of 945 euro.
Case is a repro and only used as background.
|This completely untouched set of field uniforms, came directly from the relatives in Austria. The original owner was reportedly KIA in 1944 and the uniforms sent back to the family. Please contact me for further details.|
The set consists of:
- M36 issued field tunic upgraded to officer and slightly retailored to get a shorter waist section as was fashion at the time. Loops for one badge and signs of another badge and a ribbon bar having been pinned directly to the tunics. All insignia 100% originally applied including the Ostmedal and EK2 ribbons.
|This interesting tunic is an issued EM/NCO service tunic upgraded to officer with the addition of slit and hanger for a dagger, and an internal belt of the type often seen in tailored tunics.|
The rank is the equivalent of an Oberleutnant, and although Obersekretär is the most likely title, the red secondary color was used by several speciality brances.
The twist cord of aluminum and dark green around the collar patches, signifies an offical of the medium career. This makes it a fairly rare tunic, since this career consisted mostly of NCO's and Obers..
|Very elegant looking piped service tunic, from the prestigious Berlin tailor 'Averbeck & Bröskamp'.|
Tunic has a nice bullion eagle, loops for 3 badges and a ribbon for the 'Winterschlacht im Osten 1941-42' medal. The white collar patches show some discoloration along the top edge, where they would rub against the neck. All insignia match the tunic in wear, and definitely look original applied.
Inside there is a slit for the dagger hanger, and a label dated 1938 with a name which I believe is 'Hübner'.
Tunic shows lots of wear and quite a bit..
|Here we have a very nice and complete flight jacket.|

It's quite hard to find a jacket like this, that has been worn, but where everything is still in ord..

Tunic is very clean and in excellent condition inside and out. No mothing or damage anywhere.
|This sharp looking piece is a text book example of an early Luftwaffe officer's service tunic.|
It's tailored from very fine officer's cloth which retains a vibrant deep blue-gray color. Along with the equally vibrant golden-yellow tabs and boards, it's quite an impressive display piece.

On the left breast, there are loops for a clasp, or more likely, a long ribbon bar, as well as two..
|This cap has a 1943 date on the sweatband, and it's a textbook mid-war EREL. Dark brown sweatband, ''ghost'' print under the sweat shield, slightly subdued piping and an eagle with some extra backing cloth around the beak area are all typical features matching the date.|
Despite being in almost mint condition, the cap has a great crushed shape with high swept back peak, since the internal stiffener around the crown has been removed. Looks fantastic on display!
|Here's a great looking tunic with a history!|
It is named to Fritz Lonzius (born 10.08.1911 in Magdeburg), who was a pilot and Group Leader in JG 300 and credited with one arial victory. He is mentioned a few times in the JG 300 Chronicles by Lorant/Goyat. Apparently he became heavily addicted to Pervitin (Methamphetamine) in the last days of the war.

On the lower back and on the back of one sleeve there are some clean cuts
which have been very neatly repaired probably by a tailor..

|These alu J2 badges are really hard to find, and when they do pop up, they
usually have one or more repairs.|
This one has a repaired catch but is otherwise minty and very detailed.
Often the rivets are visible on the front of the wings, but this it not the case here.
The case is just a repro used as backround, and not included.
|This grouping was originally part of a large group of items from Heimsch, sold by Hermann Historica.|
Heimsch served with 10 (F)LG 2 at Fliegerhorst Kiel-Holtenau - a unit that flew DO 18s (flying boats) before the war. He earned among other awards the EK2, EK1 and the transport clasp in gold.
Tunic is a wonderful, high quality tailor made example. It is free of mothing but shows overall service wear and some dirt, especially in the neck area. Most likely, this was his everyday tunic.
The bullion breast eagle has some oxidation, but otherwise ..
|Nicely preserved aluminum buckle marked 'GB' for Gustav Brehmer.|
Light wear and excellent detail.
|Here we have an attractive looking example of the rarely offered two piece mediterranen summer flight suit.|
Both jacket and pants are in good overall condition.
The breast eagle is a nice original EM version, but has been replaced at some point.
Front zipper possibly replaced but IMO a period job. It is an early 'ZIPP' zipper with a larger head mounted on top of the small head, likely because the latter proved too hard to grab with gloves on. It has a small mending at the bottom edge, but still works.
All snaps are by 'PRYM'. One snap i..
|Here we have a classic 'Hartmann' jacket with the large pointed collar, high waistline, zippers on the breast pockets and flaps on the hip pockets.|
This one has been modified with the addition of a knitted waistline band as seen on the summer flight jackets, making it quite unique. Also a large map pocket has been added inside the left breast area.
The nicely worn cupal breast eagle is pinned through three small loops. Most of the silver finish is gone from the back of the eagle.
Jacket has well worn slip on shoulderboards for a Feldwebel.
|Here we have a well used example of the rare late war leather flight jacket.|
This one has been stripped of the wiring, breast eagle and most of the lining. The right breast still shows the outline of the eagle.

This jacket does have some issues, but it is priced accordingly, and despite everything, it still looks great on display!
|Here we have a wonderful, well worn flight blouse for a full Oberst!|
It is made of high quality, very smooth cloth.
The right side of the breast features a bullion officer's eagle showing a little oxidation.
The blouse shows overall wear, inside and outside. The insignia has matching wear, although the collar patches show less wear than the eagle and shoulder boards. This makes sense, since the collar patches were applied upon promotion to Oberst, while the shoulder boards were just upgraded with pips since the rank of Major.
The lower ..
|Excellent Pilot's Badge made by Berg & Nolte Lüdenscheid.|
High quality tombak badge with well preserved blackening on the eagle and silvering on the wreath.

Well worn but undamaged save for a couple of holes in the liner.
This is the rare 'unheated' variant made without any plugs or internal wiring. It is NOT a 'heated' jacket with the wiring removed!

Nice larger size suitable for display on a mannequin.
|Great looking early quality EREL officer's visor cap, with a wonderful saddle shape!|
Vented cockade and EREL logo on sweat shield and sweat band.

It features the ventilated wreath and grommet at the forehead.
Both wreath and eagle are very high quality and typical EREL.

On the reverse of the sweatband, it is stamped with a 1938 date, and the size which is 58½.
|This is the visor cap of Uffz. Heinrich Schnuer of 1/KG 2.|
It has a great looking swept back crusher shape!
Unfortunately it has not been stored too well and since it is made of the thick felt-like material that moths just love, it comes as no surprise that there are numerous small surface bites all over the crown. Luckily they didn't go for the piping and there are no big holes either. It's not that noticable until you pick it up really.
Along with the cap comes a picture of Schnuer as a Gefreiter wearing what looks like this cap, before he g..

The tricolor shield has been scratched off as per regulations, but it is still clearly visible.

|Great looking tailor made uniform for the hard to find "Spiess" rank.|
The tunic displays a nice officer's quality drooptail eagle. On the left side of the breast, there are loops for 2 badges. Also above the pocket there's a small ribbon bar. It was there when I got the tunic, and I've left it there. Finally there's an EK2 ribbon through the top button hole.
The Spiess rings are machine sewn to the sleeve, they show the same amount of wear as the rest of the tunic, and are clearly period applied.

The sweat band carries the logo of "Deutsches Leder". On the reverse is written the name "Schott". There was a Schott in the LW who received the DKiG, but there were probably others with this name too...
|This LW officer's set is basically mint and completely untouched!|
Both jacket and pants are made of the same cloth and both are named to a 'Stabsarzt Dr. Laubenstein' and dated '43.
All insignia is in perfect condition. Shoulder boards and collar patches retain a vibrant deep blue 'Waffenfarbe' for medical.

Tunic is near mint and a nice large size.

|Great looking private purchase NCO visor.|
Both the celluliod diamond and the sweatband bears the EREL trademark.

Sleeve zippers bear the "ZIPP" lightning bolt logo, while the front zipper is marked "RUHR".
All zippers are original and functional, even though the front zipper has lost a couple of teeth (it still works).

Apart from a tiny (one cm) repair on one elbow, the jacket is lightly worn and free of damages.
|Here we have a slightly salty P38 holster.|
The maker is 'FSX' (Albin Scholle) and it is dated 43. It also features the Waffenamt eagle and 'WaA445'.
Apart from a few loose stitches around the corner with the magazine compartment (as seen in pic 3), there's no real damage and nothing missing. It's just overall worn and dirty.
With some cleaning and maybe some gentle leather treatment, I think this one would look great, and as it is, it would fit right into a frontline display.

Partial sweat band of which the middle part is missing.
Light sweat staining around the edges, but overall a nice looking cap in very good condition.

|Excellent named tunic for a senior officer coming out of my own collection.|
The condition is close to perfect with only a couple of small snags to the front. Insignia is nice and vibrant in color, it hasn't faded at all.
There are loops for 3 badges and a long ribbon bar. All loops are intact.
There's the typical small button for the officers aguilette under the right shoulder board.
The tailor label is a bit worn, but I believe it says ''Hauptm'' and then ''Brekl'' or ''Brakl''.
Senior officer tunics are not easy to find, let al..
|This visor is in very nice shape except for the very edge of the neck area which seems to have been partly eaten away by moth or rodents - hence the price.|
The detachable white cover and the rest of the visor is undamaged.
Nice saddle shape!
A very displayable summer visor at a bargain price!
