Militaria and WW2 history forum and topsites. Sõja ajaloo portaal.
Short history of Wintergerst. He was handed over to the Reds and then never seen again so it’s hard to find any info on him.
I don’t know much about them, but I love these Pottery helmets.
Coming in different sizes and colours, I have Fifteen so far cool militaria
I got my first one many, many years ago at a Militaria show for £5
I think they come in three sizes, Small/Medium/Large.
Although the actual difference is quite minimal..
May be 1.5 inches long by 1 inch high approx., and that’s probably the Large size.
I’m always on the look out for new ones, but… sadly they are very hard to come by now.
Very rarely do they pop up now, but I’m always on the look out for a new addition.
Three more to my growing collection..
Love the green one cool militaria
I’ve waited nearly two years for a new one, then three came along within days of each other :confused:
Can’t be having that… so a restoration has begun.
With no rubber caps top or bottom, and with fungus spores and foggy lenses, these binoculars need help.
Also, they have become very stiff with dirt or ageing lubricant.
So, a full clean up is needed with new rubber parts to be added.
These weigh in at around 1.8 kg, quite heavy.
In good clean condition, these go for any thing between £600 to £1200, depending on condition.
Fungus spores have been found, third picture, the large white spec. :o(
These must be burnt out in a oven, because they will regrow again, it’s very hard to remove once they have taken root :shok_yikes:
Pictures of the strip down of parts that need cleaning/servicing.
Also, the lenses are "Foggy" or "Cloudy" and need treatment…

Sageo and Menuki.
I am told by the seller that it is signed KANEYOSHi and dated 1941. He also said it is KEISO YASURI marked on the Tang, but I do not know what that means.
Thank you for any help.
