    It's quite difficult to put a value on such an unusual item-they are more of a curiosity now than a collectors item, but I wouldn't be surprised to see one in the $75 dollar range, give or take a few depending on the day and the buyers.

    Hi folks, You can bet my eyes popped out when I saw this suitcase at an antique store. The Grünmeliert cover caught my eye right away. We know it as the material used to make the early FJ bone sack. It was marked "US officer suitcase?" For 50 US dollars I thought it was a bargain. As you can see, it is a period German Plattenkopfer made of Vulkanfiber. I think it compliments a living history display. I don't the exact date of this suitcase but I will guess 1935 to 1950. NH

    Hi wagrif, Thanks again for your input. $75 sounds fair to me so I will not be booking a trip around the Med quite yet!!

    Eye Eye Odal, Where on earth did you find this little gem? And more to the point, who did it belong to?? Not Von Stauffenberg by any chance??
    Cheers for the photos and for supporting the thread. Regards and best wishes Michael R

    Michael R. - thanks for the comment. I have two TR era suitcases. Knowing that officers were allowed to have some luggage I think they make a great addition to an impression. I use one in displays too. Have a look. NH

    Unusual items do not have the real market value. But they have a lot of character! For example that "ruined" bajo - yes, it is not a bajo any more but $75 sound a cheap price to me.

    Hi Neil, yes it does look good with all the other items but where are his PJ's, socks and underpants?? LOL
    Cheers Michael R
