My SOS pickup!

Article about: Great pickup Patrick!

  1. #1

    Default My SOS pickup!

    I will spill the beans and say I picked up a nice Infantry Officer cap by Robert Kappe. Great shape, the sweatband has seen better days but it has no mothing and a nice faded top. Best of all was the price,,,,.... 290euro. As I said it was probably the only original item on his table as Todd said the helmets were all duds.

    The show was amazing, I'm sad I have to leave tomorrow back to Ireland. Meeting the other collectors was fantastic.

    So I treat you guys with these four horrible photos until I get home!

    That is a nice hat. I am very jealous, especially for 290 euros!

    A fine looking hat. Is the sweatband leather or ersatz? Either way, it's a fairly simple restoration job. And the price is tough, indeed, to beat! Am glad it worked out for you!
    (And, btw...Never be sad to be leaving for Ireland! If all had worked out as planned, I might well have retired just outside of

    Like I told you when we were at the table, a great cap Patrick. You really did great on your negotiation. It was great to finally meet you. Hopefully we can all do this again next year or soon thereafter.
