BARON KLAUS VON FREYTAG-LORINGHOVEN CAVALRY CRUSHER CAP GROUPING CONT. SALE ENDS ON 1 FEB. Additional photos and information: The crusher cap is made of early soft molten material and the exterior has only a few small minor and very discrete moth holes so with surprisingly minimal damage, as it was well used in the field and a combat environment. The insignia is stunning and in excellent condition. The leather peak shows cracking to the front centre, due to it been stuffed inside a suitcase for 70 years with many other family military items, until they surfaced recently. There are signs inside the cap of a possible makers name to the inside crown and the cap size is approximately 56. There are 12 detailed and comprehensive personal letters, mainly addressed to Klaus to his field post address and presumably from his wife, with date stamps in 1942 & 1943. These letters are many pages each and the last letter was written in October 1943, and must have all been returned to the family along with the cap, when he was killed on 4 December 1943 in Mykolaiv in the Ukraine. Also, 13 various original photographs, 4 with close-ups of Hitler meeting his staff at his Headquarters probably around mid-war time, and others of Klaus (framed) and his brother Karl v. F-L, who was an officer in the artillery and others must be family members. Possibly Klaus and definitely his cousin Wessel v. F-L, was attached to Fuhrer HQ which was arranged by Admiral Canaris during 1943. Hence the nature of some of these photographs. Finally, more documentation including Klaus's HJ membership Card from the 1930's, and this military files, and even his marriage certificate ! The most telling item here is his pocket-sized personal address book containing many hand-written names, addresses and telephone numbers, and especially those of all his wider family. Most notably of course is Wessel v. F-L, but also another cousin, Bernd v. F-L who ironically was in the Fuhrerbunker at the end with Hitler and broke-out to deliver Hitler's last Will & Testament (refer the films; 'Downfall' & 'Hitler: The Last 10 Days'). Please email for more photo's and additional information.
BARON KLAUS VON FREYTAG-LORINGHOVEN CAVALRY CRUSHER CAP GROUPING WITH LINKS TO THE 20 JULY 1944 PLOT SALE ENDS ON 1 FEB. Rittmeister Baron Klaus von Freytag-Loringhoven extensive grouping, with links to the 20 July 44' Plot; His cavalry crusher cap, personal letters, original photo's and other documentation, including his personal address book with hand-written names and telephone of his cousins Wessel v. F-L (who supplied the brief-case bomb detonator to his close friend Stauffenberg) and Bernd v. F-L, who was in the Fuhrerbunker right at the end of the war with Hitler. I am sure that there are others that are noted in this diary who could be of interest. This all came from the family and has never been in a collection before and with plenty of scope for further research and would be a great project. Klaus served with the 24 Panzer Division which was formed in in 1941 from the 1st Cavalry Division, and the tank crewman wore the golden-yellow Waffenfarbe due to the divisions mounted origins, rather than the Panzer pink. A fascinating group and especially with the connection to the plotters and conspirators, from an East Prussian family of nobility. Any WW2 resistance material is very sort after nowadays and those members of the German Resistance during WW2 are being remembered.

FALLSCHIRMJAGER SOLDIER\'S LETTER HOME An interesting typed letter from a fallschirmjager soldier to his parents dated 7 November 1941. I have put it through Google Translate, but I am sure that someone else could do a better job at translating it. Good condition apart from a tear on the upper right-hand side (when it was opened presumably) and it would be a nice piece for a Fallschirmjager collector.

It came with an art-deco type bakelite case with a Dresden jewellers label, and this was not original to the badge, but it would have found it way into this case over the past 100 plus years.
