Very nice silver medal; The 1870 Medal of Merit for the City of Rome. The only negative is the blob of wax on the ribbon which could certainly be removed by someone properly motivated. The important point is that the original ribbon is present. ROMA is found on the ring attaching the medal to the suspension ring. Very nice medal.

Very interesting dagger for East German Air Force general. Unissued and in original case. Comes with appropriate hangers and belt loop. East and West Germany were the respective countries used as front line proxy forces between the United States and Soviet Union during the Cold War. Really a neat piece from an important time in history.

Nice set of WWI tent stakes and pegs. Excellent condition for their age as per photos. The only real damage I find is a small hole in the bag at the side of one of the buckles (Image 7). The bag has some marking on the inside of the flap but very faded (Image 2). Looks like the original rope. I haven't pitched a tent since Boy Scouts so I have no idea what the difference between a peg and a stake is but there are three of one and two of the other. Nice original set of equipment.

Very attractive 1st Class Iron Cross. Excellent condition as per attached images. The catch is bent down a little bit and I don't really see a reason to bend it back up (If it isn't broke don't fix it). Very pleasant convex shape can be seen in images 5 and 6. Images 2 and 3 are with and without flash respectively. The box is also a wonderful example with an embossed (Not just painted) iron cross on the top center. The push button catch works well and the leatherette covering shows minimal wear...

Two place 1914 Iron Cross medal bar with matching ribbon bar. The second medal is Hindenburg Cross. The Iron Cross is a real nice example with very pleasant toning and an overall look just the way we like them. The red stripe on the Hindenburg is a bit faded and there is also a bit of red staining. Perhaps the poor guy got shot in his dress uniform? Otherwise the ribbons are structurally in good shape with no fraying and a very nicely done wrap job...

Small plaque with profile bust of Helmuth James Graf von Moltke. Moltke was a very forward thinking Field Marshall. At the top of this piece is a famous quote of his "Erst Wagen Dann Wagen" the meaning of which translates to "First you leap". His main theory being that one should attack strongly but never to plan to deeply past the point where contact is made. Since there are simply too many possibilities and varying factors it does no good to over plan to far into the future of a conflict...

Wonderfully made naval cannon made from wood from the U.S Frigate Constitution. This frigate, of course, was famous for some very famous successes against highly skilled British ships in the war of 1812. When the ship was overhauled in 1927 the old wood was made into souvenirs and sold to the public (Imagine that happening today?)...

Very nice 1914 Iron Sross 2nd class. Ring is hallmarked M . Condition of the medal is top notch and just where collectors like to see it; Very clean, undamaged and smooth but just enough very gentle aging where it is obviously real and with some personality. Nice, crisp black core and nicely toned silver frame. Original ribbon nicely folded. These have long been undervalued and are becoming a hot item with the hundredth anniversary of WWI. Top notch example of a classic medal.

Very scarce Group Six Assaulting Battalions Medal. This was some campaign in East Africa and the same instance from which the more famous Montagna Cross arose. Fascist medal made in 1935 and designed by Costantino Affer. Obverse is Mussolini giving his Roman salute. Around him are the battalion names. The reverse shows two gladii over a fasces. In the center is the place names where these battalions particularly distinguished themselves in battle. Unfortunately this is the incorrect ribbon...

Very cool pair of Marx Toys helmets. These are doughboy style but WWII vintage. These are red and I think there is a silver version also. Terrific condition when one looks at what is usually offered for sale. These were toys in every sense of the word and after spending years battling in neighborhood backyards the condition usually suffers significantly. These have good shape and excellent remaining paint. The first one shown in detail is complete with a nice strong decal...

Very nice WWII Purple Heart medal with extras as shows. The ribbon bar has a plastic cover. the good conduct medal and ribbon bar came with so will go with. The pin is from a private company the veteran must have worked for. Again, it was with the group so it stays with the group. Nice little set from a veteran estate in Wilmington Delaware.

Very nice little Imperial album sized for postcards. The cover is nice and clean but is made of a sort of corrugated craft paper so there is some edge wear. Really in great condition for not being real solidly built. There are 25 pages which can hold one card front and back. The last two attached images show the damaged pages that I was able to find. A nice little album.

Unique, hand made CBI - China Burma India - pillow case. Brown silk base embroidered "TO MOTHER" and 1945. The bullion stitching is very nice on this but as it is hand made there are some loose threads along the edges. Nothing is coming undone; It just looks like this was made not so tightly. The fabric is a warm brown silky material that was very frustrating to photograph either with or without a flash...

This is a very interesting set of six cigarette holders. They are in the original sealed wax paper envelope but seem to be thick paper or cardboard. Each has patriotic motifs including a battleships, flag stand, airplane, portraits etc. Packaging has a good looking iron cross in a laurel wreath and the humble price of 10 pfennig. I have never seen this before nor could I find any other examples online so figure this was a cheap type of item that nobody bothered to save. Great piece.

Absolutely lovely Imperial German Navy stein. Artwork includes a zeppelin and a very nice rendition of an armored cruiser in addition to the usual patriotic flags, stands of arms combined with soldiers drinking beer and working the ladies. I think he must have been a member of the cruise crew as the banner reads "An Bord S.M.S. Prinz Adelbert". Comparing to photographs of the Prinz Adalbert it is clear that this is the ship pictured on the stein. The fellow's name was Reservist Henschke and he i...

This is an interesting button hole pin reading "zur erinnerung an 1870" and a Maltese or Iron Cross in the center. I have actually seen a lot of fake enamel examples of this pin but didn't know there really was such a thing. This war was a rather quick French thumping. This is a painted example and I have included obverse photos both with and without flash to show the most detail possible. Cool item very reminiscent of later Third Reich membership pins.
