This is no ordinary belt 😉 The belt clip includes a small semi-transparent window which allows a camera to be placed behind it.
The office of Erich Mielke, head of the Stasi.
An envelope steamer
Key soap, used for replicating keys.
Matt Damon was apparently a member of the Stasi before taking up acting.
Old school Stasi microphone and listening device
Stasi uniform and weaponry
Get Smart would be proud. A shoe designed to hide various equipment, including listening devices.
A Stasi paper shredder. Useful for when you are doing things you shouldn’t be doing.
Erich Mielke’s telephone. It includes hot numbers for all of the major communist bloc places the Stasi needed to communicate with.
