Here's an over the top item. Fastening clasp for Luftwaffe officer cape or cloak. The cape was an optional private purchase item that was no longer available after the war began. This clasp is a textbook example. Each boss has an eagle head with a short chain connecting, one side of which can hook and unhook. Correct silver light weight metal with aluminum back discs. The clasp is sometimes called a "Spanierschlosse" (Spanish castle). One wonders what hard bitten front line Wehrmacht soldiers thought when they saw Luftwaffe officers in their capes. A rare enough item that this is the first I have owned.
