    Your time is coming.[/QUOTE]

    Please wait till I win the lottery , before you decide to sell off your wonderful "fetid woolens" . On second thought don't sell , I miss your posts too much . This site wouldn't be the same without you ! Also just a quick question , what type of bags do you use for storage of your headgear ? I don't have many , but i don't want them eaten .
    Cheers Chris

    Thank you. Your collection does lead the pack, though.
    Thank you however you are much too modest. The beauty of this forum is the wide array of quality collections and individual examples shown. Stonemint a good thread, each has their own grail, I will try to post mine shortly. Ben knows which one I speak of.

    I think if I HAD to choose....hmm...the SS stuff is nice, but I've been there-done that.......for WWII era..., as Patrick said, perhaps a nice worn but still good condition German KM Named U-Boat Ace Captain's white top(with the accompanying Blue cover as well, of course). As for Other nationalities....maybe something more Exotic like an Croatian Ustashi Officer's visored field hat. Or perhaps a Hungarian Szálasi Officer's visor.... And Other time periods? There isn't enough Room here to list the Christmas shopping list I'D pick! lol

    Too many SS hunters out there to contest with... So i'll go for the Luftwaffe M41 "Hermann Meyer" with neck protection! This will do just fine for me...

    FB do you by any chance own any of these????



    p.s. If an early black SS cap appear in my doorstep i would gladly invite it in for a cup of coffee ofcourse!

    I reckon that my choice would be a Luftwaffe general's visor cap, with all bullion insignia, no celleon. I thought about a white top version, but I actually prefer the regular cap. I wouldn't turn down a white top, though!

    When I dump my collection, which I am more inclined to do as I endure much of what transpires on these sites, you may have your pick....
    I'm sorry to hear that as you have one of the finest collections i know of but when and if it happens put me down for one of those.
