The "Affe"(The "Monkey"), as it was called in Germany at the time, can still be found for little money, not only at the local flea markets.

Btw, "Der Affe im Nacken!" is a typical German idiom, meaning something is breathing down your neck, driving you crazy, etc.
Drug and alcocohol addicted people in a cold withdrawal / detoxing, call it something like this:
"Push a monkey!" ("Einen Affen schieben!")
Very sure old soldier's language, unfortunately I don't know more about it...
