  • Rare Long Style RAD Reichsarbeitsdienst (Reich Labor Service) Bullet Hanger For Subordinate Hewer **Archives**

    This item is out of stock

    This very nice RAD hanger is the longer 2-piece type with belt loop and nickel clip. This clip attaches to a wire type holder that is connected to the larger leather tab on the bottom of the hanger. The bottom portion of the leather is the bullet style leather tab used to protect the wearer's uniform from rubbing when suspended from the belt. Both nickel snap clip springs are nice and tight; and, the leather straps are still in very good condition and supple. Although there is some fading of the brownish-black dye due to wear, the overall condition is excellent, to say the least. There appear to be some markings on the reverse of the bullet shaped leather pad, but I cannot make them out. This type of hanger is quite difficult to find and would make an exceptional companion for a really nice hewer. A rare piece in very fine condition!
