    Default Luftwaffe Officer's Schirmmütze

    I picked this up at the SoS yesterday. No matter how much I study I am always jittery about anything I purchase or trade for. I showed this to some people I already knew, and some people I just met and everybody liked it. The sweat band has some issues typical of the ersatz variety and a bit of oxidizing to the bullion, but I really, really like the overall look of it. I could not find any reference to the maker on this forum or on WAF so thought I would show it.

    Rest easy--your hat is original. Muller was not a maker, but a distributor, and yes, many other examples of his wares exist.

    Thank you! I was pretty sure, but it sure helps hearing it from someone that I know knows his stuff. Also interesting to learn that Muller was a distributor. It looks real nice sitting next to my infantry officer's cap. A very small hat collection for sure, but I am happy.

    I thought the show was pretty good. It has been a few years since my last visit, prices are definitely down since then. The highlight for me is always meeting the WWII veterans and since I was always interested in the air war it was pretty neat meeting Bud Anderson and Dick Cole.

    Nice pick up, I was looking at the photos and saying to myself I cant imagine this being not real, esp compared to what I have collected, I'm glad an expert settled your fears.
