luftwaffe Officer M43 cap & bullion insignia, marked "Statni Film"
Going through some of files of caps that have come and gone, and found some photos of this one, I let it go some time back,
but thought the photos might be of interest here, it was marked with the 'Statni Film' studio stamps from Czechoslovakia,
who used a lot of wartime uniform items post-war in various films etc., and a lot of this stuff came onto the market when the
Soviet Union collapsed in the late 80's.
The cap had unusually thick piping around the crown. These are the only photos that I still have of the cap, hope it is of some interest....

That was a nice one Bob I still have a couple of the Stani studio marked caps a Heer 34 and a Luft OS they came into the states in 80;s sometime I think George Petersen was instrumental in bringing a lot in from the Czek republic I would loved to have gotton one of the SS or panzer ones he had circa late 80's. timothy
Nice to see.
I could not have ever parted with it...

Us and them - and after all we’re only ordinary men. Me, and you - God only knows it’s not what we would choose to do. Forward he cried from the rear, and the front rank died, and the general sat and the lines on the map moved from side to side.

It does not have a Statni Film stamp, but many other Czech stamps, as well as all the RZM SS marks. The thing is worn, but very intact.
The badges were likely revived at some point, but it has its own story.
