help please,info on luftwaffe memorablia
Hello,I have a leather flying helmet with the goggles....also with them came a glass bottle with a china stopper.on the stopper ther are the words in german " property of the luftwaffe"
I cant find anything anywhere to research this.THe items came to me from an old dear who found them in her attic,I have had them for over 20 years.I know they are genuine,
Is the bottle rare?
no one seems to have heard of it.
I am going to sell them and need to know a bit more so I can get a valuation somehow.

Hi, and welcome to the forum!
The items are not WW1 in date, but will be from WW2. So I have edited your thread title and moved it to here.The Luftwaffe did not exist in WW1.
The bottle is a Luftwaffe marked beer bottle. These are not rare and do come up for sale from time to time. I found one priced at $225, however, I feel this is somewhat over priced and I have seen them for sale for far less.
The value of the flying helmet and googles will depend on which type they are as various models existed. Can you share some pics?
