Somewhat more interesting than the average dorked up uniform or fake collar patch that suffocates the digital universe, nicht wahr?
My thanks to my mentor for his generous visual aids.
Thanks to my senior mentor for these remarkable things. We are much richer for his generosity.
FB, thanks for your efforts.
Thank David, my good old friend, for showing his material.
Great stuff from a collectors one-of-a-kind ace of exceptional value
for the collecting world!

Stunning! The shoe box of cuff titles is unbelievable. The material that makes up the uniforms has the appearance of being very coarse in texture, is that the case? Please, thank your mentor for letting us see these unique items.

Thank you, honored sir, for your own wonderful scholarship and learned presence in our midst. In the spirit of full disclosure, some of these things are in a private collection in Europe.
We thank all stalwart persons here who promote the work of this site and otherwise contribute each in their own way.
For others who aspire to these things, the real material here sets a high standard for which some of us have sacrificed over decades and at major expense of time and treasure.

Wonderful tunics and insignia !!

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

Another obscure piece of the NS puzzle coming forth. In small increments the truth continues to piece together what has never been known or seen by the collecting community..not even a thought of..which no history book seems to exude...until now. Special thanks to Mr Delich..and Friedrich-Berthold..for bringing this to the attention to the type collectors and the community as a whole!. Regards Larry
It is not the size of a Collection in History that matters......Its the size of your Passion for it!!
