    An old thread but I liked it very much

    Here is my normal 19th centuary Cap Box. Nothing compared to the Beuaty of the cap box at the start of the thread but still an interesting piece that escaped being distroyed in the 20th centuary. As you might think it would be distroyed because if its simplisity. But it was the thing inside the box that kept it safe.

    Simply mind blowing that these fragile items have survived for so long.
    I can understand a 'peace time' tall hat in its box surviving for 80 years, but TR visors and their corresponding boxes were hardly something Germans treasured in the immediate post war era hence they may have fallen by the wayside in huge numbers. That the visors were brought home by allied soldiers is one thing, but that these hat boxes were also 'liberated' by the victors, is a source of wonder to me.
    Very nice, that they have survived.
    Thanks for sharing.

    A Müller box with three Müller caps. A plain and simple hat box that serves as an extreme opposite example compared to the delightful box that began this thread all those years ago...

    The construction of the box and material is, from what I can determine, identical to the one stonemint posted above.
