George Petersen, Springfield, VA. No date. No text.
This catalog has been long sought after by me. I found a reprint
of the 1932 catalog. In it are hundreds of pictures of all
sorts of imperial paraphernalia still available in 1932. There
are tons and tons of helmets of all sorts. Even an 1842 type
helmet, could be bought in 1932. Lots of firemen and police
type wappens. Black-and-white pictures on very long piece
of paper. Thin but every single wappen kind of thing you would
want to find. The incredibly bad news is that there is zero
text. Not a single caption, no legend, no way to take a look
at an item in the catalog and read what it is. So you suffer
immense frustration. This is incredibly difficult to find
and is well worth looking at the different items in the catalog.
The items about firefighters is referenced nowhere else. So
it is relatively great to be able to show a questioner that
a specific wappen is from a fire department. Some wappens with
crowns removed are also in the catalog. Very nice reference
work, but very frustrating.
