headdress

Generally speaking, this covers late-18th to mid-20th century and all disciplines from parade items to combat equipment. Good reference books include: two volumes by Carman on British military headdress and Tom Stubbs's excellent book on Imperial German officers' headdress, published by Schiffer, USA.

militaria item Royal Horse Guards OR's helmet plume, nylon
- British
This fits the standard troopers helmet. This regiment, one of the oldest in the Household Cavalry, has guarded the monarchs of Britain ever since Charles II returned in 1660. They still guard the monarch on state occasions, along with the Life Guards, who wear the same helmet, but with a white plume.

militaria item Waffen SS single decal helmet with mesh net, model 40
- German
THIS FAKE IS ON THE WEBSITE AS A WARNING! It is not in my possession. It has a new lining and has possibly been completely resprayed with a fairly good looking facsimile of feldgrau, but the main thing is the decal is a modern one.

militaria item Coastal Artillery cap with SS badges
- German
This dangerous fake would deceive many collectors. The cap is a genuine Coastal Artillery item; the soutache and the badges have all been added to 'create' a more interesting commercial prospect! The skull badge is certainly bogus and the eagle is not totally convincing, but might still be OK.

militaria item Waffen SS helmet, double decal
- German
THIS FAKE IS ON THE WEBSITE AS A WARNING! It is not in my possession as the client on whose behalf I was selling it returned it to his source. The shell and the party decal are OK, together with the bulk of the paintwork, but the SS decal has been added much later, perhaps only ten years ago, possibly to replace a damaged police decal.

militaria item Water protection police officer's side cap
- German
The Wasserschutzpolizei (WSP) were responsible for such duties as the policing of harbours, inland river ways and canals. This slightly scruffy example (several moth holes) of a rare side cap has blue rayon lining, a dark blue cloth body gold bullion piping.

militaria item Ordnungspolizei officer's peak cap
- German
Unusual example, being essentially a Weimar period cap (green band as opposed to brown) with 3rd Reich 1936 pattern insignia. Maker mark Alkero, dot punched into leather sweat band. Vaguely legible name on paper insert. This cap has had extensive field use and shows comensurate wear and tear.

militaria item Luftwaffe tank crew ski cap
- German
The black ski cap was commonly used by Luftwaffe ground crew. The Hermann Goering Division variant had white piping to the crown. This is a clean example with no interior markings. The cockade fluoresces under UV lamp, so could possibly be a replacement. It is otherwise in excellent condition.

I received the item today, you had packed it well and there were no problems with customs. Overall I was happy with it although the blade was a little bit worse than I had imagined, however thank you for your efforts.
