    Hello

    Thanks you to appreciate. The 13° DBLE tarte is one of the rarest items of my collection.


    and some other beret of French Foreign Legion. They're all new.

    officially berets (the one you have when you arrive):

    model 1953


    model 1995






    made by private makers (the one you sell , cause they look better):
















    and two made for specific units:

    1° REC



    2°REP

    Excellent! Now that's a bit of history I did not know.

    One of these days I'll have to take some better pictures of my own collection. Not nearly as impressive as yours, though Smile

    Hello

    Happy to see that you appreciate my berets. I'm collecting since 25 years , and often the most difficult it's not to find berets but documentations about it.
