Lot No: 6001

A Third Reich era German collection relating to one officer, Hauptmann Karl Kohler (Captain). The lot consists of Waffenrock military coat with eight-button front, fine feldgrau wool, Swedish cuffs and Waffenfarbe piping to collar, cuffs, front closure and rear vent, aguillette. M37 officer's tunic, silver braided belt with clasp, visor cap with badge, enlisted army dress bayonet with hangers. An associated copy of Mein Kampf. Not much is known about the officer as he was fairly secretive. He was believed to have been born in Leipzig, an Infantryman in WWI and injured in the Champagne area of France. He was partially disabled and later had an involvement with the Nazi Party. Worked in Berlin and trained the Infantry to ski in the mountains as part of the Alpine Corps training. The vendor received the collection from the elderly serviceman as a gift.
