1934/35 M16 AUSTRIAN SATIN BLACK WITH HAND PAINTED DECALS ! This Allgemeine-SS helmet is a very distinctive type that was part of a contract batch of perhaps 200 helmets that were done up in the early 1930s for the SS. They all consist of the same maker Austrian M16 shell ('B') and have been referred to over the years by advanced black helmet collectors as 'lampshade' due to their distincitive shape. The characteristics found in all of the lampshade transitionals are very consistent: cottage-industry produced rolled steel liner band with three-pad liner system; copper (usually) split pin liner retaining rivets, and an M16 style commercially made double buckle chinstrap. Most examples feature CA Pocher SS and party shields, but this helmet features the hand-rendered variety. This means the helmet was decorated within a month or two of the 1935 Party rally at Nuremburg, wherein RFSS Himmler announced that all helmets should be decorated with two emblems in oil paints (the design drawing he used was of the standard runic and party shields). Within a month of that same party rally, in August 1935, CA Pocher won the contract bid for production of decals in that design specification. Thus, this helmet is a rare representation of the interim period of shields used on Allgemeine-SS or SS-VT helmets at that specific time.Kelly Hicks COA is included.

ANTI PARTISAN BADGE IN GOLD WITH PROVENANCE WWII Veteran bring backs by a couple of buddies from the 15th Inf.Div. Their haul comprised of some real goodies, including 2 Anti Partisan awards, one Bronze and one Gold, (offered here), along with some other very nice items with which I am still in negotiation, supplied with the awards will be copy photos of the veterans during WWII and one more recently, also a copy of the yellow card describing their war booty which they would place on the table at local gun shows, where the items would be also exhibited. The Gold award here is in superb condition with no damage and in perfect original working condition, manufacturer I believe is Junker. As to be expected the Gold wash has mostly lifted, however there are solid patches and the award has a nice gold hue

ATTRIBUTED LAH OFFICER TUNIC! Extremely rare opportunity!! Never in a collection before recently from the family. Original Obersturmfuhrer gilt LAH cyphered shoulder boards period applied and sewn in I only ever sew one such tunic before! The tunic is attributed to Nov '44 Obersturmfuhrer Karl-Heinz Mayer, born 20.02.21 and is coming with a photo of Mayer wearing a similar tunic as Untersturmfuhrer. The tunic is cut in a smooth grey wool and is fully lined in black silk like material, with sleeve liners in candy stripe, the dark green collar is finished with nice long points, interestingly apart from the shoulder boards the remaining high quality hand embroidered insignia has obviously been re-applied by the family,in a rather amateur manner and has his former rank tab of Untersturmfuhrer applied, also the excellent bullion eagle has been placed rather low and a little crooked, the bullion hand embroidered cuff title has been tacked on around the top edge only which allows one to see the clear mark of where a cuff title was attached previously, even with the families rather poor restoration, this is a fantastic opportunity to obtain a real SS-LAH officers tunic, with more research to be done!

The tunic is an M37 Field-Grey Drill Blouse, and belonged to Karl Bohmer KIA 1942 Russia, also obtained by Mollo was Bohmers visor hat and his SS officer tunic (featured in Mike Beavers book Uniforms of the Waffen SS pgs 204-207) The tunic is in undamaged condition showing one or two brown stains and some light sweat staining and appears only lightly worn. The tunic retains an O/Rs Runic 1 tab with officer cord applied, the rank tab is matching and is ranked to Hauptsturmfuhrer, both tabs are hand applied, behind the collar can be observed the remains of some NCO black and silver twist cord, also the concealed button hole tag for neck closure. The shoulder boards are non SS type and are pink based with silver wired facing and gilt pips, also is the gothic A gilt device for panzer Jaeger (anti tank) one pip is broken off, the retaining buttons are RZM SS marked dated 1939 as are the buttons to the breast pockets, the front closure buttons are maker marked and again dated 1939, the period applied concealed button is sewn behind the left lapel, the sleeve eagle is an early so called hammer head type with wool backing and is factory machine applied, to the cuff below is a flat wire Deutschland cuff title which is hand applied, inside the jacket is complete with all ties and straps also the factory applied Drell- Jacke RZM oil cloth remains intact.

AUSTRIAN WSS NCO VISOR AND ASSOCIATED ITEMS Just out of the 'woodwork' in Austria, items include a pair of NCO shoulder boards, a feldpost cardboard box, some pips, loose insignia, and the cap. The card box has hand written on it, K T L Stab SS Kaserne Schonbrunn,the family name has been erased from the box. KTL Wien-Schönbrunn: K raftfahr T echnical L ehranstalt the SS in the former "barracks Vienna Schoenbrunn", later "Fasanengarten barracks", today "Maria Theresa barracks" KTL (Wien-Schönbrunn), later "SS-Waffen-Technische Lehranstalt" (also Wien-Schönbrunn) was later SS-Brigadeführer und Generalmajor der Waffen-SS Walther Neblich Interestingly inside the cap behind the sweatband news paper has been used to afford the cap a snug fit, the news paper used is dated 1942 and is a Wien publication! The cap has a beautiful saddle shape, the top is in a ribbed gaberdine type wool with white piping which is slightly wider than the its centre counterparts, cap band is in a standard black wool. The patent leather chin strap is of the Heer pattern, and remains un-adjusted, the visor itself is of vulcanfibre with a chequered brown underside, inside the liners are of a golden brown artificial silk, celluloid lozenge is unbroken,presumably the former owners initials K.U are inked to the front liner, the ersatz sweatband is fastened at the rear with a split pin and has split to the side, the metal insignia was found loose in the card box, time and condtions have left the insignia with a heavy patina and dark,as can be seen from the images provided, the eagle has been fitted back to the cap in the exact same way it was before removal, even the pins are fitted in to the exact same places where they were embedded into the liner! The Skull was found with no pins, one replacement pin has been fitted, in order to restore the skull also to its exact original placement. The cap has suffered some moth damage, mainly around the very lower edge beneath the piping, luckily the chinstrap seems to have kept the pest from chewing the front, to the cap top there is tracking and several nips, however the cap remains very attractive. The shoulder boards are for SS-Untersturmfuhrer Infantry, however it would seem at one time they were SS-Scharfuhrer as the ends of the boards show clear signs of having once had further litzen fitted, slightly mis-matched but clearly from the same tunic/man,the field grey underside of both boards is heavily chomped by moths. Will consider splitting the boards from the cap.

BLOOD ORDER 2ND PATTERN Early issue 2nd pattern blood order that displays the classic traits of the 1st pattern medal. The punched issue number of this medal is 2220 meaning it would have been awarded in or directly around August 1939. Currently the recipient is unknown however as more information is constantly coming to light from archives, it is wholly possible that 2nd pattern medals will be attributable in the future. The medal displays a desirable patina throughout with no visible damage. These medals are struck from 800 parts pure silver and damage is often encountered due to the softness of silver, therefore this example is very pleasing. Award comes with a sought after button hole style wearing ribbon, the two halves have become separated over the years, however the ribbon compliments the medal very well.

EWIGES ARZTTUM HIPPOKRATES An extremely RARE publication, ex libris Dr.Carl Schneider, who was heavily involved with the Nazi euthanasia programme. The publication is fro Himmler and it seems to be a reminder to the SS doctors of there Hippocratic oath!! Published in 1942, it was encouragement to keep the Doctors of the Reich in tune with the SS programme. Professor Dr. Carl Schneider (1891-1946), Professor and Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry of the University of Heidelberg, used the Nazis' euthanasia program for his own depraved research. Schneider conducted psychological assessments of children he knew were doomed to die, and had their brains collected and dissected after they were murdered.8 Schneider committed suicide after the war.

EXCLUSIVE AND LARGE GROUPING TO LSSAH SS-OBERSCHARFUHRER KLINZMANN TUNIC SOLD.Klinzman born 1913 was a career policeman, for compulsory service joined LSSAH, also joined the NSDAP, member 3601216, and following service with the LSSAH Klinzmann served with the SD in Norway as a Grenz Polizei NCO. The following pictured/described items are all direct from the family and reflect Klansman’s career, the tunic came stripped and has been restored with the Grenz Polizei insignia from the grouping this being his last posting, tunic retains its original RZM/SS oilcloth label to inside pocket and usual VA stamping to black cotton liner, tunic is in superb undamaged condition with absolutely minimal wear, comparatively the black SS straight leg pants show moderate wear and some repair work to pocket openings inside rear pocket has a Berlin tailor label with Klansman’s name hand written in ink. NSDAP party book has an excellent uniform photo of Klinzmann wearing his black LSSAH rock, with party badge to his tie, contribution stamps through to 1942. The Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler photo album has no photos. Just two awards are included in the group his 1938 Anschluss award on ribbon with pin, also a machine embroidered sports award.

One pair tunic removed of black and silver piped un-ranked SD collar tabs, also a single black and silver piped rank tab with RZM/SS label to the rear, a single rank pip has been removed, a single EM/NCO black and silver twist shoulder board, an unusual feature of the board is the fact it is with a slip on strap and 2 loops sewn underneath either side of the 1937 dated black and silver SS/RZM silk tag, I am unsure of the use for this. Klinzmanns tunic removed early tubular bullion hand embroidered Adolf Hitler cuff band is included along with his early jawless visor Totenkopf, lastly included is an example of the ultra rare machine woven LAH sports badge previously hand applied to the shirt. Post war veterans pins include the 1950-2000 HIAG pin, along with 2 further LAH divisional pins one with the Divisional vehicle symbol and another with the LAH monogramme cipher.

GERMANISCHE LEISTUNGSRUNE (GERMAN PROFICIENCY RUNES) BADGE CITATION!! AND RELATED DOCS The award is very rare....... the citation is like Hens teeth to find!!!only one of three known!!! With so much supporting photos and other documentation!! Named Wilhelm Wolfrum. In all the group consists of around 60 documents and photos Signatures from Karl Maria Demelhuber,Felix Steiner Hans-Albin von Reitzenstein (Wiking/Das Reich -Knights Cross) wrote a personal letter to Wolfrum. On page three of the March 15. 1944 issue of the Deutche Uniformen-Zeitschrift“ ( line drawing in the photo section) a small article reads: “The Germanic Proficiency Runes badge was awarded for the first time by Reichsführer SS Heinrich Himmler during his visit to the Netherlands. This honor is awarded in Bronze and Silver” The above translated caption is in reference to Heinrich Himmler’s visit to the SS School Avegoor, near Arnhem in the Netherlands on February 1st 1944. Himmler personally presented 95 Germaansche Leistungsrune, the Dutch name of he award, to Dutch and German SS men. Also in 1944 further recorded test and award events took place in Denmark on June 2nd and in Norway at the Norwegian SS School on August 16th 1994. I am unaware of further recordings of ceremonies to award the badge may also have been awarded on other occasions less grand than the events above. From details contained within the Wilhelm Wolfrum Germanische SS Profüngsbuch we can ascertain at least one further testing and awarding of this badge did indeed take place between the 26th and 29th of October 1944. On the fourth day of the test event Wilhelm Wolfrum, a German, was awarded the Germanische Leistungsrune in Silver, at the SS-Reichsschule near Prague, Czechoslovakia in October. Qualifying for this badge must have been quite an achievement for Wolfrum as he was severely injured in battle on July 24th 1941. The injuries were so severe that Wolfrum was unable to recover and return to full duty status until January 1943. A Brief Biography of Germanische Leistungsrune Holder Wilhelm Wolfrum Wilhelm Wolfrum was born on September 2nd 1913 in Frankfurt am Main. After 8 years of preliminary schooling he trained and worked as a tool and die maker. As a young man of 22 years he joined the SS-Verfuerungstruppe (SS-VT) 2nd Battalion of “Germania” in August 1935. He trained as Waffenmeister (Armorer) and saw combat in the Polish and Western campaigns assigned to the 2nd Battalion Staff, with Battalion Commander Werner Dörfler Schuband, Regimental commander Carl-Maria Demelhuber (Demelhuber signature on Wolfrum's SS Driving Licence) and Divisional Commander Paul Hausser. He was involved in the heaviest Waffen-SS engagements in the Arras region of France in 1940. In February 1941 Wolfrum transferred to Waffen SS Division “Wiking” and was duly assigned to a Wiking Reconnaisance Detachment as it’s Waffenmeister (Armourer). The Detachment commander was Hans-Albin von Reitzenstein, later a Knight’s Cross holder as a Panzer Regiment Commander of “Das Reich”. The Divisional Commander was Felix Steiner. Within 2 months of joining Wiking, Wolfrum was promoted to SS-Hauptscharführer (FA) [Officer Candidate] on April 1st 1941 with an effective seniority date of 20th April. In July he was awarded the Iron Cross 2nd Class and received an excellent evaluation by detachment Commander von Reitzenstein. In April 1941 Wiking completed it’s training in Truppen-Ubungsplatz Heuberg, Germany, in time for the fist attack on the Soviet Union, operation Barberossa. On July 24th 1941 Wolfrum was severely wounded in his stomach and groin by mortar fire during combat in the Dnjeprpetrowsk area along the Djnieper River. Until August 1942 Wolfrum underwent multiple surgeries in the Munich-Dachau SS Hospital and did not recover to full duty fitness until January 1943. For these battle injuries Wolfrum was awarded the Wound Badge in Silver. Von Reitzenstein also recommended Wolfrum for promotion to Officer rank on 30th August 1941. He was commissioned as an SS-Untersturmführer d.R on November 9th 1941(the Reserve, to hold rank until the conclusion of the war) On February 7th 1945 he was transferred to the SS-Tank Training and Replacement Regiment within SS-Troop Training area “Beneschau” near Prague. In the last months of the war Wolfrum once again found himself in battle when his training unit was absorbed as a component of SS Battle Group “Trabandt”, commanded by Knight’s Cross holder August-Wilhelm Tabandt. Full list of Wilhem Wolfrum’s awards: SA Sports Badge in Bronze, Reich Sports Badge in Gold, Sudentanland 1938 Annexation Medal, Iron Cross 2nd Class, War Merit Cross 2nd Class with Swords, Wound Badge in Silver, General Assault Badge in Silver, Infantry Assault Badge (Motorized) and the Germanische Leistungsrune in Silver. After recovery to duty status Wolfrum was assigned to the “Waffentechniscen Lehranstalt der SS”, the SS Weapons Technical Training facility at Munich-Dachau on January 10th 1943 as an Assistant Instructor. He became a full-duty Specialist Instructor as well as serving as the Weapons Technical Officer for the School. During this period he also attended advanced classes at the Army School for Armorers. After 1st April 1944 he headed the entire 4th teaching detachment at the training facility. For his service as an Instructor he was awarded the War Merit Cross 2nd Class and rated by senior school officials as “competent at all posts despite his physical disabilities” from his combat injuries. Wolfrum was further promoted to SS-Oberstumführer d.R on January 30th 1943 and then to SS-Hauptsturmführer d.R. on November 9 1944. An interesting point about this particular book is that Wolfrum, walked with a limp, was not required to take Test 12, the 30 Kilometre march. The picture to the left shows a section of page 19 where test 12 is marked “bestanden” which means “existing”. Wolfrum had previously proven himself in his military service in combat, presumably sufficient “qualification” to be excused the test. Wilhelm Wolfrum survived the War and was taken into an Allied Interment Camp for Waffen-SS members. He was released but soon after died in the town of his birth, on the 31st May 1947 around 2: 45 AM, Frankfurt/Main, leaving a wife, no children.

L A H MONOGRAMMED MILK JUG ! Maybe Sepp himself used this piece! A 1930's silver milk jug made by the firm of Berndorf (standing bear logo to base) a popular producer of such silver ware during the Third Reich, the early flowing entwined LAH monogram is expertly and beautifully engraved the jug, and is exactly the same as the cyper used on early shoulder boards, the attention to detail is amazing! There is much patina and the jug has obviously not been cleaned for many years, it must have been a part of a set of formal LAH table set! The first time to the market the jug came from a private source in Germany recently.

LAH HJ SS-STBF. RUDOLF FEND OPEN NECK TUNIC Offered is a tunic with provenance back to the seventies, where the tunic was purchased at a US gun show in Wheaton IL, by a Chicago collector, the collector entered into correspondence direct with Rudolf Fend who in 1980 was living in Munich, Fend wrote a kind letter outlining not only his career but also mentioning how he got the tunic in 1938! His tunic began with the Luftwaffe flak, then to the SS-VT Deutschland, LSSAH, 12th SS-HJ.! Fend also included photos with his letter to the collector, these depict Fend with Sepp Dietrich and Kurt Meyerand are offered along with the letter the TUNIC and a whole file of research material concerning Fend well over 100 pages including further photos of him from various sources, one of which he looks to be wearing the very same tunic! The tunic is a fine tailor made fine wool VT-Open neck, with red piped SS-Stbf. shoulder boards, bullion wire officer sleeve eagle a beautiful hand embroidered 'Adolf Hitler' cuff title, collar tabs are with runic hand embroidered and 4 alloy pips for the rank tab. The interior is fully lined and has the usual candy striped sleeves, there is considerable sweat staining through out the interior, and the tunic has clearly been worn on many occasions throughout WWII. The inside pocket has its original machine applied tailor name tag with the date and Rudolf Fend hand written. It is my opinion that some of the insignia which is all original,may have been re-applied post war, and at one time the tunic had some spurious LAH cyphers fitted, now in the tunic pocket. However its undeniably HJ Flak Commander Fends WW11 tunic! Complete with a pair of Fends breeches.

LASSAH OFFICER MANTEL
LATE WAR WSS M43 CAP 'MINT' Known in collector circles as 'Dachau' M43 caps, far more rare than the black panzer caps know by the same name, cap is finished in a feild grey medium/heavy wool of surprisingly good quality, with a one pebbled button closure, typical of this type of cap the visor underside is sans wool with the card inner only, liner is unworn and size marked only, the rare printed green insignia has been machine applied on construction. MINT condition.
LATVIAN SLEEVE SHIELD Not the usual mint un-issued ex-depot looted one, this one shows hard combat wear, super piece of history, the first used example I have seen.

LSSAH CUFF BAND FROM LAH GROUP BREAK UP WITH PHOTO OF ORIGINAL OWNER Photo shows the original owner wearing either this band or a very similar example! Superb early 1935 hand embroidered bullion cuff band, this distinct style with a spread out AH signature is only seldom seen, to one end a silk tag is machine attached and identifies the cuff band manufacturer RZM 23/35 SS, the other end of the title has been slightly shortened (42cm approx) thus the embroiderer ID tag is minus, removed from his black tunic/coat as evidenced by the black cotton attaching threads condition is exceptional just the highest points of the embroidery show any wear. Superb band with know owner!
LSSAH CUFF TITLE Extremely attractive early RZM bullion hand woven cuff title, bullion lettering is the thickly woven fine twist aluminum, as found on officer sleeve eagles, and is un-damaged and un-oxidized condition, to the reverse the lettering is backed with a blue cloth, typical of these early production bands, the aluminum strand boarders are again typical of the period and vary in number 5-7, super example of an early officer quality cuff title, alas short at approx 18 cm.
LSSAH EARLY FLOWING CYPHER SHOULDER BOARD Unterscharfuhrer pointed end un-piped board circa 1937, integral cypher is the very rare small flowing LAH monogramme.

Rare insignia from the premier WSS division.

LSSAH SOLDBUCH WITH VT LICENSE AND POW DOC. MORE FOTOS
LSSAH SOLDBUCH WITH VT LICENSE AND POW DOC. 3 piece set comprises his Soldbuch, VT driving license and allied POW release document. There is more to this soldbuch than first meets the eye. Very nice early combat Soldbuch. This man must have been fighting from the start and then with the last units active in Berlin. The Soldbuch is an amalgamation of 2 soldbuchers, the first Soldbuch was issued in 1.4.39 and closed on 14.11.44. The cover is from the first soldbuch (standard Army Soldbuch) the photo was added when he was with SS Erganzungsstelle Spree III, it’s most likely the soldbuch never had a photo until 1944. I can’t find where he was wounded in 1939 (Poland) as the motorcycle unit which he was with was dispersed throughout the army group. It quite rare to find wound entries for Poland Awarded...

SS Erganzungsstelle Spree III The V-Division was trained into an effective and skilled combat fighting force, taking part in the invasion of the Sudetenland in 1938 and Poland in 1939. V-Division never fought as a single unit, but was instead divided into smaller regiments dispersed among the various regular Army units. In 1940, after the invasion of France, V-Division was given the name “Reich,” at the same time, “Reich” and other SS-VT units, along with Theodor Eicke’s Totenkopf-Standarten, were subordinated to the new Kommandoamt der Waffen-SS and from then on called the Waffen SS.

There were a lot of people who were prosecuted for war crimes with this unit.. SS-Ergänzungsstelle Spree (III) Berlin-Lichterfelde-West. SS office for recruitment and replacements.

M35 DOUBLE DECAL SS HELMET M35 Q62 SS DD a re-issue example, purchased directly from Kelly Hicks in 2008. Helmet has a Kelly Hicks COA. Here is Kelly's description of the helmet to the purchaser in a 2008 e-mail "This is a Q-62, 1938 dated helmet, with a very cool batch number of "1940" in the rear skirt. The helmet walked out of the woodwork about a month ago, and I got it from a friend who has a good knack for finding veteran items and old collections around the midwest. This one is one of three I have ever seen that has been re-finished in the Q 1939 dark, glossy apple green color, rather than the typical milky grey that you often see on early Q. You can see clearly there are decals underneath the outer finish. The pochers tell me that the helmet was done at the unit or depot level. I am considering putting it in my upcoming SS Steel update as an example of the 1939 color used in this case. " Extremely attractive helmet which oozes character, 85% factory paint remaining, pocher decals remain vivid, liner is supple and of course original to the helmet, extremely desirable piece!

I have a range of colours and some have tiny chips, the rarest is the amber which is £100. Others £65 chipped £50 Please state colour required and I will choose the best one available.
MAJOR EARLY LSSAH PHOTO, INSIGNIA AND DOCUMENT GROUPING Fascinating record of an early LAH mann, Albert Haugmuller joined the SS in 1931 and spent time with 11.SS-Standarte, Vienna, later given honour title 'Planetta', in '33 he was at SS-Sonderkommando Zossen training for SS-Sonderkomando Berlin, under the guidance of Sturbannfuhrer Otto 'Papa' Reich, his service with the LAH included attendance at the National congress at Leipzig July '33 and of course at Nurnberg, Hagmuller also took a personal part in the ROHM PUTSCH.

It begins with the title, my service in pictures from Drill to Portepee! Interestingly the first photo is of him in make up for a play, wearing a black Kratzchen. Interestingly on some early pages, Hagmuller has used the protective tissue type sheets between the photo pages as a means to identify the individuals in the photos with a numbering system, very helpful! The album starts with early training including Zossen, also early uniform shots showing himself in brown shirt and '11' tab, Gobbels and Dietrich seem to be among his favorites and appear several times, photos of the Leipzig and Nurnberg congress, Hitler, Himmler and the usual suspects, photos of the LAH Deutschland Erwache and the Schellenbaum, nice ceremonial marching and congress photos, beer in Luitpoldhain!

More Gobbels photos, Banda faschista, album finishes with large photos of congress including Hitler, Rohm, Darre, Dietrich, Wolf, Schaub, Bruckner and,and.... Final photo is of his Portepee. Along with the album is Hagmullers NSDAP membership book, civilian photo, membership number 687383, entries show his LAH service , SS awards, stamps include Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler and SS-Sonderkommando Berlin!

Along with the album and Party book is lever arch file containing well over 100 documents maybe 200 or more, including a letter from Hagmuller dated 1991 describing some of his SS experiences especially praising ‘Papa Reich’ The main reason being is that it was Reich who saved him from SACHSENHAUSEN KZ! The remainder of the file comprises largely of correspondence between Hagmuller and the NSDAP/ SS authorities several between Hagmuller and SS Gruppenfuhrer Alfred Rodenbucher including the latter’s original signatures, regarding his innocence and being wrongly imprisoned. Also stapled to a card is Hagmullers original Sachsenhuasen KZ number worn on his KZ uniform. It seems that Hagmuller was involved with the assistance organization formed by Rodenbucher for SS refugees following the Putsch attempt in Austria. Hagmuller had noticed that certain monies from the Refugee fund were often short when handled by a particular officer, Hagmuller decided on a course of action against the officer involved, who in turn it would seem outwitted the hapless Hagmuller and had him sent to Sachsenhausen kz! On what charge I am not sure of, research of the file I am sure would reveal the facts. Several months later as luck would have it ‘Papa Reich’ his former commanding officer In the LAH now had jurisdiction over Sachsenhausen kz, he actually saw Hagmuller in the kz and asked what the goodness was he doing there, knowing he would not have been Guilty of the crime alleged, had him immediately released. Hagmuller eventually was pardoned and invited back to the SS, but declined and went to war with the Army as Panzer grd. Final rank Hauptmann d.r (copies of his soldbuch and award citations can be obtained) Finally included in the back of the album are some post war documents relating to his former chums especially Emil Moser, also some loose photos including Moser , Albert Stenwedel and Dietrich.

REICHSFUHRER HIMMLER AND SS-OBERSTURMBANNFUHRER DACHAU COMMANDANT WEITER SIGNATURES Basically a document welcoming Weiter to the SS pen signed by Himmler once dated 1st Oct 1936, and twice by Weiter. Himmlers dark career is well known. Weiter continued as an anonymous bureaucrat until in 1936 he retired from his paymaster role, the Bavarian police having been incorporated as a unit into the Wehrmacht. He then took a role with the SS, although once again as a paymaster and even at this point Weiter wrote that he had no particular political beliefs or identity.Indeed he did not join the Nazi Party until 1937. Weiter did win the favour of Oswald Pohl but his ambivalence to politics slowed down his advancement and even when, during the Second World War, he was put in charge of administering Dachau concentration camp it was still a bureaucratic role away from the actual camp. Despite this Weiter succeeded Martin Gottfried Weiss as camp commandant on 30 September 1943. Inmate accounts suggest that Weiter's regime was characterised by the same anonymity that had defined his career as he was rarely seen around the camp.Conditions did decline however, notably due to overcrowding as other more easterly camps were closed but Weiter made little attempt to expand Dachau to cope with this influx.[ It is also likely that Weiter personally killed the dissident Georg Elser, whose death was officially announced by Weiter as having been caused by an air raid. After the war a letter to Weiter from Heinrich Müller was discovered in which the order was given that Elser was to be killed and that the death was to be blamed on a bombing raid.Inmate leaders would later testify that Weiter had spoken to them shortly before leaving Dachau in an attempt to get them to testify to his lack of direct cruelty at any subsequent trial.

SA LONG SERVICE CHEVRON Uniform removed example of this rare insignia.
SA PRESENTATION DAGGER SLEEPY! MAKER F.DICK Must be the sleepiest SA presentation/dedicated dagger ! 80 years of patina build up! The dagger must have been put away some where secret and undisturbed since the thirties. All nickle fittings including x guards and insignia are heavily patina-ted so heavy it could be measured! This could all be cleaned back to the Nickle underneath if so desired, but in my opinion the patina is the character of this piece as much as the dedication. Brown anodised scabbard is undamaged with corrosion breaking through, as you would expect with an untouched piece all original screw are present and unturned, wood grip is superb with just tiny chipping at bottom front x guard, upper rear scabbard mount has the presentation/dedication 'For good and true service to the 43 Reiterstandarte' finely engraved, blade is bright, excellent with 95% x graining remaining, lettering retains all its darkening.

SS -Inf.-Rgt.4 (mot.) EINSATZGRUPPEN DOCS Citation for wound badge in Black Sept.1941 to SS-Schutzen Altfried Schultze, also a postcard to notify his family of his FP No. The 1 SS Infantry Brigade (mot) was formed from concentration camp guards, on 21 April 1941, from men of the 8 SS Totenkopf Standarte and 10 SS Totenkopf Standarte of the SS-Totenkopfverbände. It received the designation of the 1st SS Infantry Brigade (motorised) on 20 September 1941.[1] When Germany invaded the Soviet Union (Operation Barbarossa) in June 1941, the brigade was stationed in Kraków, Poland awaiting its full complement of men and materials. On 23 July the unit moved east into the occupied territories and between July and August 1941, mopping up dispersed Red Army units in the rear of Army Group South. On 9 August the Brigade was north of Zhitomir and was asked to cover the northern flank of the 6th Army in the Pinsk Marshes. The Brigade next operated behind the XVII Army Corps and on 23 August, crossed the Dnieper River. During the remainder of the year and until late 1942 the unit was assigned to the Reich Security Head Office, which also had the SS Cavalry Brigade and the 2 SS Infantry Brigade (mot) under command.[2] In the autumn of 1941, the brigade actively took part in the Holocaust as part of Einsatzgruppe C and took part in the liquidation of the Jewish population of the Soviet Union, forming firing parties when required. The three brigades were responsible for the murder of tens of thousands of the population by the end of 1941, and they destroyed at least one village st Białystok for no apparent reason as they had not been engaged from it.[2] On 12 December 1941, the Brigade was placed under the command of the 56th Infantry Division on the orders of Army Group Center when a gap appeared in the front line of the 2nd Army in the area of Tula, Yelets Liwny. On 28 December 1941 the unit was placed under the command of LV Army Corps

Colours to the outside genrally bright, with the exception of the lower arm sections which are well worn and faded, colours to the inside autumn side are strong and bright throughout! The smock has been modified with front having been opened and some eyelets added and then patched over? To the bottom edege of the smock a short length of elastic has been added to either side, I cannot see the function for these, however they are certainly period. The cuffs have been slightly shortened, probably to tidy up the frayed edges, but not right back to the elastic. There are many small repairs through out the the smock, the left sleeve has an extra seam to the upper arm wether factory machined or a subsequent repair I am not sure. Looks to be an original draw string. An original combat piece ! Priced at level to allow for the condition.

SS M35 COMBAT HELMET NAMED Fine example of a M35 combat helmet, wether to comply with the regulations or to conceal his true wartime role, the owner, SS Hauptscharfuhrer Willi Hiller removed both the runic decal and party decal, the helmet was one item of several that came from the same man. The helmet otherwise is in top condition 90% original factory green paint remaining, leather liner is in excellent lightly used condition and Hiller has written his name SS Hauptscharfuhrer Hiller, leather chin strap is supple and equally unused, maker marked and dated 1938. What follows are the names of some of the perpetrators, all German officers and N.C.O's who participated in the crimes against Jews and Gypsies in the Chelmno area. The first commandant of Chelmno (Kulmhof) was SS Sturmbannführer - SS-Major Herbert Lange. He was followed in March of 1942 by SS-Hauptsturmführer - SS-Captain Hans Bothmann. Successively, Bothmann had two assistants, Otto Platte and Willi Hiller. SS-Untersturmführer - SS-2nd Lieutenant Walter Filer, deputy to Bothmann SS-Untersturmführer - SS-2nd Lieutenant Alois Häfele, the 'specialist' in charge of all activities. SS-Hauptscharführer - SS-Master Sergeant Albert Richter, division commander SS-Hauptscharführer - SS-Master Sergeant Wilhelm Lenz, Chief woods commando SS-Hauptscharführer - SS-Master Sergeant Johann Runge, Chief in charge of the crematoria SS-Unterscharführer - SS-Sergeant Erich Kretschmer, deputy to Runge at the crematoria SS-Hauptscharführer - SS-Master Sergeant Erwin Burstinger, in charge of the fuel and all the gas vans SS-Hauptscharführer - SS-Master Sergeant Gustav Laabs, driver of the gas vans SS-Hauptscharführer - SS-Master Sergeant Herman Gilow, driver of the gas vans SS-Unterscharführer - SS-Sergeant Walter Burmeister, in charge of the gold SS-Rottenführer - SS-Corporal Wilhelm Gürlich, deputy to Burmeister, expert in gold SS-Hauptscharführer - SS-Master Sergeant Schmidt, in charge of the dinning room In January 1945, when Soviet troops were approaching, SSers started the execution of the remaining Jewish workers, some of whom attacked the Germans, killing two of them. The SS burned the building in which the Jewish workers were locked. There are only two known Jewish survivors of this camp, Mordechai Podchlebnik and Simon Srebnik. During 1962/63, twelve members of the SS who had served as guards in Chelmno stood trial in Bonn, Germany. For their war crimes they were sentenced to prison terms ranging form 1 to 20 years. Considering the enormity of the crimes they were accused of having committed these sentences are extremely light and certainly out of tune with reality.

SS NCO VISOR ATTRIBUTED! Since this cap was first placed on the site I have found further information on the original owner, the cap and painting in actual fact were part of a small grouping and comes from the estate of Obersturmführer Jakob Halbgewachs, SS nr 421 045. He was listed as Sturmmann in 14/Pz.Gr.3 "Deutschland" in may 1940 and as a Obersturmführer in SS-WVHA Amt W V in november 1943 and ended the war with Rgt "Deutschland". Typical issue war time WSS NCO visor cap, top is in a mid-grade field grey wool with reed cored white piping, and black wool center band, original SS pattern patent leather chin strap is retained, insignia comprises of both eagle and TK in mid- production matching silver wash finish, TK is a Deschler product the eagle looks to be Assmann. Interior is in a grey cotton liner with discoloration from use and time, celluloid diamond is fully retained (size marked 58 beneath) with only one small split, sweat band is of the often encountered ersatz leather material, which in this case has remained in very good condition with just 2 stress splits at the visor ends, visor underside is in brown. The painting shows Halbgewach as a young Deutschland NCO wearing an SS NCO visor, and is almost certainly be the very same cap offered here. Cap condition overall is best described as used but not abused and remains in very good condition, moth nips are in various locations around the piping, and the piping has one small break to the front left side, also a couple of bites to the top (typical condition for an attic stored cap!), interior cap band paste board is un-broken, no cap spring allows the cap an attractive shape.

SS OFFICER TOTENKOPF RING 1934 Sleepy example of a 30.6.34 Rohm putsch Totenkopf ring, dedicated Slb. Kahl 30.6.34 H.Himmler, I have made only a rudimentary check on the name, in the 35' Dienstalterliste and only one officer of that name appears, the ring is somehow very atmospheric showing only moderate wear, all symbols are visible, some remain highly detailed, the ring is unpolished in as found condition, a real beauty! RESERVED FOR A.R

Returned this Totenkopfring following his service in Europe during WWII, included in this group are his Dog tag along with a note from his wife, stating that the ring "came from a German officers finger" dead or alive is unknown. The ring is the former property of SS Ostf Otto Knitter award date 30/6/34 (Night of the Long Knives) with the ring comes a large file from the US archives concerning Knitters SS service; he was also a Waffen SS Ustf. Included with in are 3 photos of Knitter, one is him in full SS uniform WEARING THE RING! The ring was obviously worn since the day it was awarded to the day Cpt. Teague captured it! It is in extremely worn condition and only shows the tiniest trace of runic symbols, the skull remains clearly definable, Inside the Himmler dedication is perfectly clear, the award date is 30/6/34 significant of course for the 'night of the long knives' the purge of Rohm and old enemies of Hitler. Wonderful piece of WWII history!!
SS OFFICER VISOR CAP With these sort after black visor officer caps reaching very high dollar prices, heres an opportunity to own an un-altered example at fraction of the normal price, unfortunatly the moths have dined out on this cap for several years! Much of the reverse has completly gone! However the cap can still be displayed without to much damage showing to the front view! The originally applied insignia is retained, with the Assmann eagle picking up much verdigry over the years, the Deschler TK remains bright with some loss of finish approx 80%remaining, both are without doubt original to the cap and never removed. The SS vom Reichsfuhrer black silk label remains to the underside of interior sweatshield, the gold SS runes have flaked though, a very original cap!! sadly also very mothed!
SS OFFICER VISOR CAP BELONGING TO SS-OBERFUHRER Dr.RICHARD VON HOFF Totally original to include its originally applied cupal insignia. Unfortunately the cap is in near relic condition having been severely attacked by moth and or rodents. On the leather sweat band to the front can be read v.Hoff, having completed some considerable diligent research, it has proven to be the cap of Richard v Hoff. A complete research file has been compiled which includes details of his SS career, noting his publications, affiliations, 3 photos of him, even his head size 59, which of course matches the cap! Reserved Alex
SS OFFICER VISOR HAT Issue cap no maker panel, size marked only (58). Cap is as found complete with its period insignia retained! Cap eagle is the political type, TK is a Deschler piece. The sweatband is minus, and the liner has become unattached from the bottom edge, the cap has been ravaged by moths, the visor has lost much of its finish, reducing the cap to relic condition, however it remains very pleasing to the eye from the front with a super high top and saddle shape. Unaltered original cap! RESERVED FOR 2 WEEKS HK
SS OFFICER/NCO CANDIDATE VISOR CAP ! Fresh to the market this completely untouched, sleepy and intriguing visor cap, at first appearances the cap appears to be an NCO/EM cap with black wool band and leather chin strap, on closer inspection the black wool band has been laid over the factory black velvet officer band! The candidate was astute and confident enough to buy one cap to cover both ranks. Cap condition is excellent retaining its original period applied metal insignia, cupal eagle and Zinc Overhoff TK both retain the majority of the factory original finish, cap shows light to moderate wear, a couple of moth nips to the cap top and a couple under the overhang, the heavy wool below the lower cap piping has been rather more attractive to the moths with several larger nips, the Sonderklasse gold liner retains its complete celluloid rhomboid panel. A super visor cap that really talks!

SS PRINTED SLEEVE EAGLE AND PHOTO Rare unissued late war printed sleeve eagle, mint condition. Some doubt has been aired whether these eagles were ever used during the war, also other notions are that they were for wear on the M44 tunic. Until now no photo that I am aware of shows these in period use, I have several examples of these eagles for sale, and with each one will supply a clear copy photo circa 1944 of this model eagle in wear! The photo below is a small section of the original photo which also shows the eagle is actually applied to an LAH StuG tunic, the copy photo I supply will be full size
SS PRIVATE PURCHASE RUNIC RING Marked .935 German silver with enamel black backing, ring shows light wear with no damage to the silver or enamel, big size, a similar ring is shown worn by an LAH man in my photos, however it is not the exact same ring, very difficult item to locate these days especially in this condition.
SS PRODUCTION M40 TUNIC Outstanding example of one of the most difficult models of SS production tunic to locate! Identifiable by its unique SS features. The jacket was found in Poland, it had been packed away in an attic complete with the soldiers awards! The tunic was missing its collar insignia, sleeve eagle, and the cuff band had been removed, clear evidence of the former position of the aforesaid insignia was represented by clean original tunic nap and colour. The mans EK2 ribbon was in the pocket, the `39 dated wound dressing remains in the inside pocket, the tunic is free from moth and has cedar wood blocks in the pockets, the tunic is a combat worn piece, and has various small damages and one or two stains, the left sleeve has been period patched to the elbow, cuff folds are part worn through, however the tunic remains very attractive and pleasing to view, and oozes salty character! The tunic has been restored with a worn machine embroidered collar tab and mans rank tab, in addition the sleeve eagle has been sympathetically restored with a second model `hammerhead` eagle in worn condition, the EK2 ribbon has been reattached, not knowing which Divisional cuffband was attached this has been unrestored. Inside the tunic is in excellent condition, with just a little rust staining, maker and size marked only, no depot stamp. Interestingly next to the buttons at the front some sort round metal discs were clipped thru the tunic,now removed leaving a small rust mark? The tunic has been photographed before and after restoration, and could easily put back to its as found state if so desired.

SS TK KZ SOLDBUCH !!! FURTHER IMAGES
SS TK KZ SOLDBUCH !!! Rare as hens teeth!! Complete and untouched following the end of WWII. The book belonged to unterscharfuhrer Johann Divo, pictured on the inside cover, in a smart m36 tunic with runes and tress,(the cover was replaced at the time of his Dachua service) the photo has the stamps of KZ Dachua. Divo entered into service Jan 1941 with SS Totenkopf Sturmbann Sachsenhausen, aged 42. His service included duties at Oranienburg, Sachsenhausen, Natzweiler, Dachua. The book is profusely filled out, he was issued with many supplies and equipment, many leave authorisations, in fact every page is a story! Many KZ stampings! Many signatures I have IDd two of them one is Untsf Johannes Otto, and Heinrich Otto Wessel, adjutant to Kommandant Kaindl, Sachsenhausen. On 28 April 1945, the day before the surrender, Camp Commandant Martin Gottfried Weiss had left the Dachau camp, along with most of the regular guards and administrators in the camp. On that same day, Victor Maurer, a representative of the Red Cross, had tried to persuade Untersturmführer Johannes Otto, the adjutant of Commandant Weiss, not to abandon the camp, but to leave guards posted to keep the prisoners inside until the Americans arrived. Maurer feared that the prisoners would escape en masse and spread the active typhus fever epidemic. Lt. Otto declined to remain and fled. Case Nr.537 Crime Category: NS-Crimes in Detainment Centers, Mass Extermination Crimes in Camps, War Crimes Accused: Wessel, Heinrich Otto 7½ Years Court: LG Verden 620606 Country where the crime was committed: Germany Crime Location: HS KL Sachsenhausen Crime Date: 4206-4504 Victims: Prisoners, Foreign Laborers, Prisoners of War, Jews Nationality: British, German, French, Luxemburg, Polish, Soviet, unknown Office: Haftstättenpersonal KL Sachsenhausen Subject of the proceeding: Participation in hangings at the roll-call grounds and in shootings in the concentration camp's factory courtyard, of prisoners and foreign laborers, who were transferred to the concentration camp in order to be killed there, on orders of the Reich Security Main Office. Cooperation in the killing of a woman, whose eye was required for a medical experiment. Participation in shootings, among them, of 27 members of the 'leather commando', and of 82 prisoners in the night of January 31 - February 1, 1945, within the contect of the alarm phase 'Scharnhorst', which involved the killing of prisoners identified by name, at the time of the evacuation of the camp. During the course of this evacuation: participation in the killing of at least 2000 ill or exhausted Sachsenhausen prisoners, as well as of at least 150 prisoners from the annex camp Lieberose. Cooperation with experiments on prisoners with poisoned ammunition, potassium cyanide, and so on. With this fascinating book are two further documents found folded in the rear of the book, one is reminder notification of how the guards should behave when out in public, no drunkenness strict dress code etc etc! The other document is a travel authorisation, and official issuance of a vehicle, is the truly fascinating part, Divo was issued this permit in APRIL 1945! to drive to Chemnitz, on some mission, one would assume he never went back, as the allies were liberating Dachua! EXTREMELY RARE HISTORICAL RECORD!

Two further documents include the subjects Stammkarte and a document regarding training and awards The Ninth Army, trapped in a large pocket in the Spree Forest region south-east of Berlin, attempted to break out of the pocket westwards through the village of Halbe and the pine forests south of Berlin to link up with the German Twelfth Army commanded by General Walther Wenck with the intention of heading west and surrendering to the Western Allies. To do this the Ninth Army had to fight their way through three lines of Soviet troops of the 1st Ukrainian Front under the command of Marshal Ivan Konev, while at the same time units of the 1st Belorussian Front, under the command of Marshal Georgy Zhukov, attacked the German rearguard from the north east. After heavy fighting about 30,000 German soldiers—one fifth of those trapped in the pocket—managed to reach the comparative safety of the Twelfth Army's front lines. The rest were either killed or captured by the Soviets

SS-OBERSTURMFUHRER JUGEN WESSEL 501 LAH PANZER KING TIGER Historical group from a platoon commander, to Company commander Michael Wittmann. At the end of WWII, Wessel had a "fake" soldbuch made to hide is SS identity, in the soldbuch he has used the original photo from the original SS SB and carefully cropped the runic tab from the photo. With the soldbuch comes a super war time list of days for his PAB in silver where you can read his battles...one is of course Villers Bocage! The document is signed by SS- Stabsscharführer Lüth (Spieß) in the 1./SS-Pz.Abt. 501. The group also contains the postwar Wehrpass and the postwar bar of medals and little book with a complete genealogical tree of his family. Included are well known copy photos of him and his tank hit in Stavelot in the Ardennes battle. Below is a letter of Patrick Agte (Peiper SS panzer regiment 1) that tries to explain how Jurgen Wessel made his soldbuch at the end of war. Patrick Agate writes:- Ersatzsoldbuch von Wessel, das ihn als Heeresoffizier ausweist. Habe ich bei wenigen anderen auch gesehen. Interessant, daß er dafür Zeit hatte. Robert vermutet das schon richtig. Die zwei Panzertage aus der Normandie kommen daher, weil er es vorzog, wegen Rheuma auszusteigen, was zu scharfen Kommentaren in der 2. Kp. führte. Er war infanterieuntauglich und wurde dadurch Pz.Mann. Mir war immer unverständlich, wieso sich Wittmann ihn als Zugf. holen konnte. Er wäre im Ernstfall sogar sein Stellvertreter geworden. Was heißt "in 1945"? Du bist unter die Amerikaner gegangen...... Wessel führte den Teil der 1. Kp., die Tiger bekam und wurde nach Ungarn verladen mit der Abt. Du siehst seine nur drei Panzertage aus Ungarn, noch vor dem Tod Westernhagens ausgestellt, da Wessel zuvor wieder zurück nach Schloß Holte kam. Eifrig wie er war, hat er sich vom Kdr. noch schnell vorher die Tage bestätigen lassen, in der Hoffnung, daß es für das Panzerkampfabzeichen irgendwann mit einer Zahl reichen würde. Alle kamen aus Ungarn nach Abschuß oder Ablösung zurück nach Schloß Holte, auch Hstuf. Dr. Rabe war plötzlich dort. Da saßen alle Asse, die keine Pz. bekommen hatten und bildeten Ersatz aus, dabei waren Woll, Warmbrunn, Wendt und weitere bekannte Unterführer mehr. Herzliche Grüße Patrick

After leaving school in 1929 he went into the Reichswehr and was then transferred into the SS-VT in 1935. His SS service number was 257,323 and his NSDAP number was 147,126. In September 1935 he joined the SSVT-Pioneersturmbann. He served with this unit, and participated in the occupation of Austria and the Sudetenland. By October 1939 Seela had been transferred to the newly formed SS-Division "Totenkopf" and given command of the 3. Kompanie, SS-Pioneer-Battalion "Totenkopf". He proved his bravery during the Invasion of France and the Low Countries. He was awarded the Iron Cross, 2nd class, in May 1940 and the Iron Cross, 1st class, in June 1940. He took part in the invasion of the Soviet Union (Operation Barbarossa) and was awarded the German Cross in Gold in December 1941. In September, 1941, the men of "Totenkopf" were in combat near the village of Lushno, in the Demjansk sector. On the 25th, the Soviets attacked the men of "Totenkopf" in a large offensive, in a series of attacks that lasted several days. The vulnerable junction of Lushno lay in the middle of the attack, defended by "Totenkopf" troops who refused to crack under the pressure. Weakened from three days without rations, heavy casualties, and hampered by an ammunition shortage, the men gradually gave ground around Lushno. By evening on September 26, every officer of the 2nd Battalion, SS-Totenkopf-Infanterie-Regiment 3, including four successive battalion commanders, had been killed. The entire battalion had less than 150 survivors still in action. The division was desperate, as it's anti-tank guns were too small to destroy the Soviet tanks, but Theodor Eicke had a plan. Eicke organized several "tank annihilation squads", which consisted of an officer, and ten men armed with satchel charges, mines, bundle grenades, and gasoline bombs. They were to attack Soviet tanks on foot, as the tanks assaulted German positions. Max Seela led one such squad, and on the 26th, his squad destroyed 7 Soviet T-34's tanks by hand, using satchel charges. To set an example for his men and demonstrate proper finesse in hand-to-muzzle combat with armor, Seela destroyed the first tank by himself, by crawling up next to it, placing a satchel charge against the turret, and detonating the explosives with a grenade. He then personally led his men as they tackled the remaining six tanks in the same manner. After setting the tanks ablaze, Seela and his men shot down the Soviet crews as they tried to escape the blaze. Seela is most famous for his part in the defense of the Demjansk Pocket, or perhaps for the goatee he had during that period. However, given the actions of Seela, he earned the right to have a goatee. For over three months in the winter and spring of 1942, the men of Totenkopf were encircled by several Russian armies, numbering 10 times in size, of the men trapped in the pocket. The men made a circle around the Russian town of Demjansk, which held an airfield the Luftwaffe used to fly in supplies to the defenders. After leaving Demjansk, the SS-Totenkopfdivision would lose over 85% of it's personell, one of the most costly battles of the war. However, aside from the terrible casualties, the men of "Totenkopf" fought on, against a swarm of Soviet infantry, artillery, and armour. At this time, "Totenkopf" was still an Infanterie Division, it did not have a full compliment of tanks, like a Panzer Division, so it had to rely heavily on Anti-tank weapons. Seela's award of the Knight's Cross was in May 1942, while Seela was a Hauptsturmführer, and in command of 3.Kp/SS-Pio.Btl. 3. "Totenkopf." Despite severe losses and meager supplies, his unit defended the Russian village of Korowitsch, east of Staraya Russa, in the Demyansk Pocket for over one month, without support. Seela and his men prevented the village from being captured, denying the Soviet Army access to the crucial bridge over the Lowat river. Had Seela and his men given up their positions, the entire pocket would have crumbled. When the men from SS-Totenkopf finally broke out of the encirclement at Demjansk, the first TK troops to make contact with outside German forces, were members of the 3.SS-Pioneer-Battalion, with Max Seela in command. In July 1942 Seela was given command of the 3.SS-Pioneer-Battalion "Totenkopf" until April 1944 when he was appointed commander of the II. SS Panzer Corps Pioneers. He was then given command of the 19.SS-Panzer-Grenadier-Regiment, 9.SS-Panzer-Division "Hohenstaufen". On 8 May 1945, Seela was captured by American forces and became a prisoner of war. Max Seela died in Ratingen, at the age of 88 on 31 July 1999.

WAFFEN SS BELGIAN PRODUCED SS OFFICER VISOR CAP Extremely rare example of an SS visor, probably made circa 1943 In Belgium, and quite possibly acquired by an LAH or HJ officer during their refit in Belgium, these caps come with their own unique construction traits the piping joint being one, along with the piping itself, the cap is a true combat veteran and is soiled to the inside and weatherd to the outside the piping has gone brittle in places and been 'field' secured with additional stitching, the cap retains its rare original period applied Belgian produced totenkopf and eagle (unique belgian construction) the chin cords to the cap are in rayon cellulose as opposed to aluminum and are attached via the normal pebbled button, the liner is in artificial silk an has no markings, of interest on these caps is the use of a luftwaffe style visor, which is the norm for the Belgian produced type.

A unique opportunity to obtain an un-tampered originally badged SS field tunic, many SS tunics present as could be originally badged or it may well be unaltered; this is a 100 % original badged tunic one of very few indeed. An M42 SS production tunic in text book materials both wool outer and inside linings light consistent wear through out, but no damage or moth, 2 metal hooks have been added to the rear for belt support a nice personal modification, all original factory fitted buttons remain, just extremely faint remains of any markings to the inside, the tunic insignia comprises of typically slightly mismatched shoulder boards red piped and ranked for a Hauptscharfuhrer and are secured with a glass tropical type button, the collar tabs are both in BeVo weave, flatwire runic tab, and 2 metal pips to the blank tab the tabs have been applied at the same time as the aluminum tress and the tress runs over the top of the tabs, the tabs are slightly soiled and weathered and imbedded into the tunic!

The insignia fitted comprises of an Assmann eagle and a 499 tk both in excellent condition!

Having said the negatives the Cupal insignia is magnificent! With a high proportion of its original factory silver finish to both pieces, the eagle is 475/39, the TK is a Zimmermann piece with the period addition of red cloth behind the eye sockets!! Interestingly the chinstrap is a Dutch strap used on Dutch police caps before and during the war, either the original owner lost/ broke the original SS style strap or took a preference to the Dutch style. Cap is a very small size.

Heinz Lehmann born Dec 1925, 1./SS-Panzer-Ersatz-Regiment April 1943 at 17yrs old, spent pretty much his entire service with 3rd Kp Panzer Rgt. 1 LSSAH, Lehmann was with 1SS.Pz.Rgt 1 for all his service 1943(Kursk and the divisions encirclement near Kamenets-Podolsk). The Rgt was equipped in early 1944 in Russia. Kompanie 3 had 103 Pazer IV. Most of which are still in Russia. May 44 he passed his Pz IV driving course this is when 1 SS. Pz. Rgt 1 was in France. Komp 3 had 12 x Panthers, 36 x Pz IV and 40 something Pz III again he was most likely in a Pz IV in France. Late 1944 Kompanie 3 was re-equipped all Panthers for the Ardennes, Komp 3 lost all but 7 of these. I am not clear if he went to Budapest after this or if he was a POW in the Ardennes or at the surrender in Austria in 1945.

WSS OFFICER SIDE CAP AND VISOR Both caps coming from one man, the visor cap has been obtained through the official channels and is unmarked other than size marked 57and has no center celluloid lozenge, very attractive pale yellow silk liner is in near unsoiled condition with no pin piercings from insignia placement, indeed the cap remains in excellent condition with minimum wear although the moths have been busy on the piping in places, the owner has purposely shaped the cap to give it a very jaunty look! The insignia set comprises of a cupal 499 skull (fixed to the cap with thread thru the eye sockets) and an M1/72 eagle, both are perfectly matching and retain all original finish and undoubtedly the insignia originally fitted to the cap,a totally 'text book' cap! Side cap is listed as 4345.
WSS OFFICER SIDE CAP AND VISOR Both caps coming from one man! Superb officer white piped factory supplied side cap, just light wear throughout with covered areas in a fresher field grey colour, interior is lined in a soft green fine cotton the central ridge crease is reinforced with an interior wood dowel, a reassuring feature to find, the SS eagle is in a white/grey BeVo weave , beneath that is a cracking flatwire weave TK, both period hand applied. The correct white soutache has been appleid by the individual in the field. Certainly one of the nicest officer side hats I have come accross! Officer visor cap listed 4344.

The tunic is a small size just as the dot '44 tunic.Tunic has minimal wear, there is light and dark contrast where the pocket flaps and french cuffs sit. One can only guess being a late tunic with no award provision that the original owner was fresh out of officer training school, and into the deep end '44-'45, the camo items listed would seem to confirm it. (M43 and EK ribbon for display purposes only not included)
WSS OFFICER TUNIC Late war as found condition!!!! Completely untouched since wars end!!! One of 3 garments all from the same source which included a dot '44 tunic and Plane tree smock both in worn and repaired condition the 2 camo items are sold.

WSS OFFICER VISOR CAP Superb condition! Good size 58 plus, standard official supply cap with no maker marks, champagne interior silk is near mint with full celluloid rhomboid remaining, supple leather sweat band is split and away at the front and one side, the peak, sweat band and silk are all nicely colour coded, period applied metal insignia is in a zinc alloy with 80% original silver wash remaining, gaberdine wool top is clean with just one or two minor moth nips, cap retains a super saddle shape! ON HOLD JW
WSS OFFICER VISOR CAP Totally as was! Apart from what the moths have eaten! Insignia comprises Deschler skull as fitted on construction, and above period fitted political style eagle, black velvet cap band and cap cords in excellent condidtion, unusually the white cap piping has not been eaten by moths, however the cap top has been savaged, inside the sweatband is minus, artificial slik liner remains mostly intact, size marked 58, also marked to the liner is a small runic stamp why or when I have no idea, cap is certainly of the type obtained through official channels, visor itself has the typical grey checkered underside the top surface black paint is weatherd and 50% away.
WSS OFFICER VISOR CAP Beautiful cap made by Perkuro, just lightly worn with minimal soiling to interior, celluloid diamond complete with full manufcturer logo,cap top and body also in excellent shape with no damage, period black velvet band has been fitted over the green Heer wool band, quite possibly by the manufacturer, at the behest of the customer, certainly the cap never had any other insignia fitted other than the SS insignia presently on the cap, this is evidenced by the interior pasteboard which shows no other piercings for Heer insignia, so far as I am aware Pekuro never produced SS visors, for a client wanting a Pekuro product this would clearly be the answer, interestingly the black velvet is the exact type as fitted on regular SS visors with a short nap and vertical/horezontal weave, insignia is perfectly matching and retains most silver wash finish, size marked 59 behind the sweat band, super period built SS visor cap. RESERVED RS

WSS SEMI CRUSHER CAP This classic shaped leather visored cap is a Pekuro licensed Stirnadruckfrei model and marked accordingly along with DRGM to the cap liner, also there is a faint oval stamping which is barely legible which maybe the distributor or unit , also the soldier has put is personal name tag in which reads Dieter Lohl. The cap is in great condition apart from two moth bites to the top,and the erzatz sweat band has become unattached from the velvet like attaching system, the cap would be fully crushable but for the inner centre band which is in standard pasteboard, and this is broken in places from being crushed!. The pasteboard also has two piercings which obviously at one time facilitated the fitment of officer cords or NCO chinstrap. The fully crushable features are of course the flexible leather peak and the BeVo flatwire Officer/NCO eagle and skull, the eagle shows light wear from handling and the skull is near perfect, I believe the cap was likely made circa 1943/4, I have seen several photos of Gotz Von Berlichingen personnel wearing identical caps. Leather visored WSS caps are seldom found and very desirable!
