Thanks and i will be in touch.Carl
Great looking selection of headgear, made me feel like a kid in a toyshop, I want everything but don't have any money. I really liked the km tropical visor, I would love to see more pics of that one if possible?
Whatever its just an opinion.
Oh wow, grown ups play time, your dead lucky im not there, my little mitts would be all over them, nice display Erich
I passed by your table, and I got to admit, I was impressed to hell.
Fantastic display Erich. But, OMG! I'd be horrified one or more of those hats would walk off under someone's coat. You must have watched them like an adler! Thanks for showing. Made me nervous just looking at the photos.
Courage is not the lack of fear, it is the ability to take action, no matter the cost.
Hey Erich, was nice to visit with you and Paul at the show. Those Allgemeine caps were to die for. Karl Wolffs and the early Allgemeine Generals visors were my favorite. I'll have to reload as I dropped the collecting cash on a ton of rare helmets LOL. Great to see the pics!
Great pics, Erich--I wish I could have been there.
BTW, killer close-ups of a lot of these hats are in Paul & Robby's book, Exotische--no collector should be without a copy (and proceeds go to the Wounder Warrior Project).
NEC SOLI CEDIT
Some great Caps etc Erich , do the documents and Visor Cap both relate to Friedrich Jeckeln ?
1st July 1916
Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
