Last month I purchased a footlocker which contained Vietnam period party suits.  These have been posted in another thread.  This Luftwaffe winter cap (Pelzmutze) was in the same footlocker.  My Veteran served in WWII - Vietnam.  He was in the US Air Force and was a Navigator.  Family kept most of the military items thinking the party suits and Pelzmutze were costume related and of no real value.

Man, what an amazing discovery!!!! The winter cap is iconic with german militaria and one that does not come up very often.

Really nice find,
Marty
