    Nice one.
    I have seen some of these stripped for the insignia.


    Now you only need the field grey one, aaaand a Handschar uniform.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    The fezes were originally bundled together in groups of five from what I have been told GI's used them as containers for the various insignia they took out of the bins. I have only seen one nondescript photo taken inside the storerooms which only shows shelves from a distance. If the lot had not been found at Dachau, the Handschar fex would indeed be a very rare item. I have only owned and seen one that had been issued and worn.

    Bob,
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this one. What a sight that must have been piling SS insignia within one of these unissued fez. Funny you mentioned this because a dealer I bought a few tabs from had acquired a lot of tabs, eagles, cuff titles ...you know the Dachua items along with a field green fez he had for sale from a veterans family. A typical Dachua treasure chest find much ones seen here recently.
    Best,
    Anzel

    Thanks Jeff. I did not hesitate and purchased this one because it appears to be in very good condition. Probably unissued and stored well over the years. It should be arriving soon. Also, I have some of its old warehouse buddies coming from another direction.
