    Default Erel Vented Cockade Question

    Greetings all,

    I came across this today along with a bunch of other cockades. I had never seen one until today, so naturally I know almost nothing about them. How long were they made, are they very scarce, and are they worth more than a normal cockade? Any info would be greatly appreciated!

    Cheers

    They aren't really scarce and I don't believe would be worth significantly more than a regular loose cockade. However, given the somewhat overblown fetishism of Lubstein caps in the collector world, you could probably squeeze a few extra dollars out of it, I imagine..

    Hi

    They are harder to find than normal cockades and were made 1930/1940's approx to fit the caps made by the firm robert lubstein. He had a patent on a fresh air system that allowed the outside air to come inside the cap via thye cockade. Helps to Stop that red mark you get on your forehead when you take a hat off.
    What you need is someone with a vented erel cap without the correct cockade and sell it to them if you want to max your $.

    Or if you are very generous give it to me and I would be a very happy said person !

    hope that helps

    cheers

    Hi

    There is every chance for that arty ! I reckon with some tlc you can put that back to it's former glory !!

    Give it a couple of days work and the Erel will be back. Post me some pics of the inside and I can talk you through what can be done to save it.

    cheers

    Tony

    ps you should send Julekpl the cockade for his hat.

    I must report that this Erel is no longer in my possession...I have been offered a nice amount of money for it. I sold it 3 days ago :') but it has a good home.
