I wish I could find a Welhausen of this quality/condition but for LW.

J, I know exactly what you mean--and with the extra-cost patent-leather visor, of course!

So Wellhausen were quite expensive back then. 21RM for an Officers visor and more than double the price of an EM cap!

Ben, agreed--but they're even more expensive now (when you can find one!)

Very interesting, how would the price of a Wellhausen at 21RM compare with the price of an Erel "Standard", "Extra" and "Privat" at the time during WW2 and before ?

Good question.
Most of Erel's Heer visors were sold thru the Kleiderkasse, and the prices are listed in the catalogs (but are not broken down by Standard/Extra/Privat).


To this day I have yet to see an Erel catalog of the type Welhausen put out.
Unlike the dagger manufacturers, hat maker catalogs/advertising material is almost non-existent.

I totally agree with Stonemint. They are also my favorite. Of course, Erel and Pekuro are also on the "top 5-10" list for me but these Welhausens are really special. I love the shape but also that thick chin cord that characterizes them.


I only have one in my collection today -- a Panzer. But I also owned an Infanterie at one time I would love to have back. A Luftwaffe officer's would be the ultimate -- I love those old ads and catalogue pages that Stonemint shows from time to time. Nothing like original source material.



Enjoy a few photos.



Mike

The Wellhausen has the best profile of all makers. The swepback front and straight angle visor is the best. Clearly seen in Mikes visors. J

The angle of the peaks of their visors are beautiful.
