It is an odd twist of fate that Dave Delich and I became pen pals in the decade past, because his writings on these themes sparked my interest in 1969, the moment when I found his very first analysis of SS regalia more or less at the same time I found Mollo.

Please allow me to express my thanks to Mr. Delich for sharing his astounding collection. This type of material is hardly shared. Let me thank F-B for showing these photos, the photos of his collection and beyond. I would like to thank him also for his guidance on the road of learning and his insight into the puzzles and mysteries that follow.
Thank you, and your contribution here signifies how this site can be a force for good versus its opposite as found elsewhere.
Historically very significant items. Thank you for showing them and thank David Delich for allowing the photos to be posted.
Thank you very, very much for sharing these fantastic items!
Some quick research on Werner Lorenz dress jacket lead me to the Marshals Baton website and this page:
I was intrigued to read that it had been professionally restored. The standard of that restoration is quite simply stunning as you can see.
Pleasing images. The monkey jacket of Dave Delich's was von Ribbentrop's, and the grey uniform is Lorenz's, I think.
In any case, we all take pleasure in the way these garments can be stabilized and preserved, and the skill of such artisans who can do so.

The restoration you show is fantastic. Quite a skilled hand there.
Als die Nazis die Kommunisten holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Kommunist.
Als sie die Sozialdemokraten einsperrten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Sozialdemokrat.
Als sie die Gewerkschafter holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Gewerkschafter.
Als sie die Juden holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Jude.
Als sie mich holten, gab es keinen mehr, der protestieren konnte.
