Gentlemen; Here is my new soldier, ready to be mounted on a nice mannequin as soon as I get one small enough, AND after finishing to apply the insigna that, as u can see, is lying on the trousers. I hope you will like the setup, and once complete, he will ofcourse appear again here.. Thanks for looking.!!.. Hans Kristian (yes, I know, i forgot the gas-mask.!!..)
Hello fellas, Here is my "new" LW NCO/EM cap bought from a german collector. He tells me he had this one from the original owners family, the name of the owner should be Wilhelm Lohmeier, born in 1921.he served in italy as a paratrooper medic but he never jumped. Some pics and copies of documents are coming later. I think good about this cap, BUT cannot say that it fulfill all criteria. There is heavy wear on the visor, on the front, and it has certainly been restiched/repaired. Maybe the visor was replaced..?..from the info in Gary Wilkens book it is stated that the inside of the visors from this maker (Hermann Potthoff ("HPC") from Coesfeld) should be green - here it is obviously black. Can I hear any opinion on this visor please..?.. Thanks in advance, Hans Kristian Frontal view: From the side, Eagle; Piping with visible core after moths been to visit..
Hey guys, I am sure some of you experts can help me with this cap. Nice and very well kept LW visor, a few tracks from the moths, but otherwise sound. Cloth with very short nap, doeskin..?.. Inside the pathetic rest of the celloid wit a few traces of white text; what is to see is the sharp part of a triangle or something at top, below this one a "i" , and below this a "T". It could look a little like the Peküro pictured in Gary Wilkins book at page 364... . (Stirndruckfrei - Deutsches ReichspatenT) Anyway, a very nice cap I believe, nice bullion insignia (not a cheap visor, I suppose..).. Hope you enjoy, Cheers, Hans Kristian
