WWII GERMAN WAFFEN SS SPECIAL LEATHER FUR CAP \
WWII German Waffen SS Special Leather Fur Cap-This is a rare cap! It has a black leather body to go along with the brown , I think romanian sheep fur. The flaps and visor are lined in fur with the exterior of each in black leather. The side flaps have a series of press buttons with an adjustable strap on one side. The rest of the interior is lined in black cloth and lightly padded. It has a producer label with year and size in the middle, the producer is a well known tank cap producer , he also made the Panzer barett. Very rare cap , not often to find with the correct press buttons !!
CASED GERMAN WWII PILOT BADGE IMME or JMME LUFTWAF
This is a very attractive and clean example of the desirable nickel silver JMME Pilots Badge – J2. The reverse of the eagle is clearly marked with the “JMME” maker logo. These badges were assembled by Juncker using Juncker parts, hardware and rivets, but were finished and marked JMME by the company who bought these badges from Juncker. The companies of “JMME” & “IMME” are still unknown, but they are thought to be the same company, or at least closely related. These badges put out by these two makers are unique in the fact they don’t follow the guidelines the Luftwaffe laid out for the pilot badge design. These JMME and IMME pilot badges have silver wreaths, not the darkened wreaths like all other makers have according to regulation. This example uses the second pattern Juncker design, known to collectors as the J2 design, probably introduced around 1939. The J2 design is characterized by a bold, thick wreath, and an eagle that is not as flat as that used on the J1 type. The overall look and condition of this JMME Pilots Badge – J2. is superb. Both the central eagle and swastika emblem, and the outer wreath, retain full original detail. The surfaces are exceptionally smooth, clean, and pristine, with eye-catching luster. The reverse of this badge is textbook for this desirable variant, with some very light toning in the recesses. For some reasons, the needle on the backside is missing, it is broken, there is the top piece in place. The badge is comming in the original early case in very nice condition, hard to find set and easy to repair !
