Lt. Sammet - Heer Panzer officer's visor cap
Three caps of Leutnant Willi Karl Hans Sammet were rescued by our consignor when the family were about to dump them during a house clearance about 25 years ago. His tunics were already lost at this time.
Sammet, born on 18.5.1914, served as a Zugführer (platoon leader) 5./Panzer-Regiment 36 (14. Panzer-Division) when he was killed in action on 5.7.1941 near Piszczow. He is buried at Nowograd, Ukraine today.
All three caps are available on the market for the first time.
