You are bidding on a 100% ORIGINAL WW2 German Luftwaffe UV Gerätleuchte (UV Instrument Panel Cockpit Light) set, Fl. 32265-1/ Fl. 32665-2, as used in the late-war Me163 Rocket Interceptor!
When the pilot turned the UV lights turned on at night, this cap directed UV light towards the cockpit instruments. This caused a reaction within the Radium Dials and as a result, the dials and gauges glowed. It was also used as a warning light for engine fire and mach speed. It was specifically used in the Me-163.
Made of aluminum by List, this dates later in the war around 1944-1945. 95% of the original finish remains, however there is some slight dirt and marks due to the age. The Fl. number can be seen on the side, indicating, Fl. 32265-1. The cap is not marked, but is part # Fl. 32265-2. A VERY RARE item, EXCELLENT for any collection or display!

——————- ABOUT ME —————–
Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
