MINT "1938 JMO" FINEST GERMAN POLICE SHAKO HELMET EAGLE
RETRIEVED WHEN POW FREED MARVIN RANSACKED A LOCAL POLICE STATION
It has the original washers, and the original screw nuts!

Extremely high relief detail and crisp features! The curved measurements are just at 5 7 16ths of an inches, but that measuring along the curvature, the eagle is 6 9/16ths of an inch! And the height is 3 3/16ths of an inch! Mint, looks unworn, but it was taken off a Police Shako by myself. The source is impeccable. Part of a direct POW and Caterpillar pin lot purchase, in its entirety. I met Marvin in 2007, while doing a living veteranís display here in the Salt Lake Valley. Purchased directly from the vet is this item, as well as several others in other auctions.

This offering comes with a 1000% guarantee of authenticity! Marvin was in KFG. D. Luft Stalag IV. Marvin was in the top turret of a B-24. He flew with the 464th Bomb Group, in the 776th Bomb Squadron and was shot down on 24 August, 1944.

Marvin told me that there was a special Herman Goring named unit tasked with holding them in the final days and they looted the guards barracks upon their liberation on April 26th, 1945.

Guaranteed forever as original!
