    It is an EF62, #15033. Ex double decal but had the tricolour removed very cleanly in the second half of 1940. Factory apple green paint is about 98% with a great patina, the whole package looks untouched. The Heer decal is beautiful, and must rate at something around 98% too. The liner is a really nice golden brown colour and dated 1939 on the band, the strap is dated 1940. Nicely named on the skirt to 'Strasser' of '2 Stabskompanie' or '2nd Headquarters Company'. I suppose this means the owner was likely to have been an officer? I'd like to try and research the name but I'm not sure how likely that is, without a FP number etc. If anyone can assist in this I'd appreciate being pointed in the right direction

    Excellent looking lid in fantastic condition, will you be treating the white mould on the leather, i would hate to see this progress on such a nice liner

    Thanks mate, I'm very very pleased with this one

    I'd welcome any advice on the liner Dave, I was wondering about that this morning. It's not at all bad at this point, but I'd consider some kind of very mild approach.

    It's got a bit of mildew starting, I've encountered it on horse tack that has got damp. To remove it correctly the liner needs gently treating with a 50/50 mixture of water and rubbing alcohol applied sparingly with a clean sponge or cloth. Dry it with another clean cloth as best you can and leave in a cool place to completely dry. Then treat sparingly with a fine application of neutral leather preservative if neccessary. Remember, go easy, don't soak it in either treatments! That'll prevent anymore spores appearing again.

    First off you need to get rid of that white fungus, use a damp cloth, not wet, and wipe the whole liner over, do not wipe the rear, allow the damp to dry then apply a very mild baby soap on a damp cloth, dont use too much because you dont want to make a lather, again wipe off with a damp cloth, allow to dry then apply a leather cream, i use Lord Sheratons Leather Balsam, it cleans , protects, and revives leather of any type or age, it will also protect it from mould reforming, try this method on a small section first and see what results you get, i think you will be pleased
