    Default Recent purchase, a fairly large lot of German and Finnish militaria. WWII and post war

    I don't know whether this is the right place to post this thread, but judging by how much there is Finnish and German WWII militaria in this lot, I decided to post this here! Got a fairly good deal on this lot. I will try and get better pictures of the items as soon as they arrive. These photos are from the seller. There are items from other countries such as the USSR as well.

    Thanks! I think so too, I can't wait to get my hands on the items. The seller should be sending them today in four different boxes, it'll be like an early Christmas.

    Default Uniforms

    These are the uniforms/clothing that I got in the lot. In the first picture is a Swedish navy coat of some sort, haven't been able to find out what kind? In the 2nd picture is a brand new dress uniform of the Finnish Air Force, even has the price tag still on it! The trousers are inside the jacket on the hanger, like with the other uniforms. In the 3rd picture is a brand new wool uniform of the Finnish Air Force from the 80s, and in the 3rd picture is a brand new Finnish M/62 uniform from the 80s as well. And last but not least, there is the James & Smith .Co Flack vest 1979 pattern, still with the original kevlar inside it.

    Nice groupings! Just out of curiosity, do you happen to run a WW2 instagram page?

    Default Variations in WWII Finnish Mosin Nagant type oilers.

    These are the Finnish oilers that I got in the lot. I tried to get pictures of the different kinds of variations that are present in them! I personally found these fairly interesting. Most of these do not have the SA embossed on their sides, only eight of the 36 do. (Sorry about the bad lighting in the pictures!)

    Typical SA embossing on the side of a Finnish oiler, on both sides of the bottle.

    This one's one of my own favorites. It appears to have a lot shorter neck and the bottle itself has some nice looking swirls on the metal. Almost looks like damascus.

    Cap of the previous oiler. Sohlberg also seems to be the most common manufacturer.

    A really large SA stamp for an oiler. Never seen one like this before.

    A smaller SA stamp and a different Sohlber manufacturer's stamp. Maybe an older kind?

    This one is also interesting. This one is stamped with "K. V. Karlsson Konetehdas o/y" Only one in the lot with this manufacturer, also the only one that I've seen myself.

    The Karlsson's cap (on the left) is also a bit different when compared to a Sohlberg one (on the right).
