    Default Zentralhandelsgesellschaft Ost

    In about a few weeks my written article about the Zentralhandelsgesellschaft Ost
    will be available from Bender Publishing in the "Military Advisor".
    The article gives information about structures, the uniform and above all the great
    looking visored cap (from the Sack-collection). For the article I was for example assisted
    by Stéphane Pauli from France.

    The ZO is quite an unknown and obscure organization and some material one can
    find here at the War Relics Forum.

    I noticed a ZO cap in post # 40 of the recent S.O.S. thread:

    Is that the same one?

    Sorry I said: Yes, it is the Paul Sack cap, but I do not know if mr. Sack offered his
    cap at the SOS. I did not ask him when I last have mailed him. I can, if needed for
    you all convenience!
    As far as I know the front view is upon the cover and a side and inner view in the article,
    plus three close-ups or so. Further shown about 12 uniform and insignia photos and
    some clippings from an order and a map where the ZO was active.

    After the cap article was ready in lay-out and send to the printers, I was informed
    about at least one other such cap.

    You can see such cap on the second from left Military Advisor with NEW from post 3!

    I was infomermed by mr. Sack that he had the cap at the SOS simply for showing.
    For a moment I thought three such caps were known, but is is just two of them!

    Gents, be aware that even a hat as obscure as this one has been faked (albeit crudely):

    There were several pictures of Paul Sack's items included in the coverage of the recent show. He is a colleague of mine, and I have the utmost respect for him.
    Thanks to Wim for writing an article about such an important item.

    Paul just told me that the other year he had about 40 rare caps on his table,
    just for showing. This is what he said:
    I brought two floor cases filled with the rarest caps I owned. White top SS general,
    Teno generals. Simply to display. Perhaps 3 people stopped to look. I've never
    understood and still don't.


    This says enough about the knowledge of over 90% of the collectors. Most
    have no idea, but do not even buy a book or subscribe to a magazine to
    "gulp down" information. In my opinion such persons should not ask
    on forums, nor should be given a proper answer! And when a proper answer
    is given, they do not have the decency to say "thanks".
    Sorry, this is just my opinion.
