    NOT "Sports Vest" although obviously Wehrmacht-Luftwaffe and probably, breast shirt or breast overall related.

    The other mountaineering trinkets are now, as they were in the 1930's, super souvenir items.

    Thankyou for your succinct confirmation about the cloth item being Luftwaffe Sports Vest related and my apologies to Klinger for doubting an obvious expertise in Third Reich related collecting knowledge.

    Ok,sports vest, but what does a sports vest look like, have not been able to locate a photo on the internet of the "Vest". I am thinking some type of military item like a parachute or navy vest. Antone have a photo,thanks in advance.

    A Sports Vest looks just like a white cotton tank top or muscle shirt
    with the National Eagle on the upper chest region.........

    The other two items are most likely souvenirs - a hiking pin
    and an Austrian 'Tirol' ski fob..........
    Regards,

    Ok,thanks for your response. The hikeing or boot pin has a skull/cross bones on edge of boot, my camera does not have a macro lens needed to pick up this detail,I used a lupe. I"m thinking it still might be issued to mountain troops,or early Brownshirts group.Just my personal opinon.
