Cool Japanese helmet with Rising Sun painted on front. Liner system is gone and some damage to top in the form of three round dents. Some civil defense force units did paint these on and this paint is certainly old. Supposed to have come from Okinawa; A point I have no reason to disbelieve. Great look.

Afrika Korps type tropical field cap. Sometimes termed M43 but actually M41. Condition is well worn with some damage as per images. Any markings are long gone. The tan/orange tropical insignia have been replaced with green. Perhaps the original had to replaced and the the fellow simply had no access to the original color. Any number of circumstances could have caused this and we have all seen strange things. Priced accordingly, though.

Very nice stamped Army General Assault Badge. Nice, honest age but with a nice clean front showing very crisp detail. I always liked the stamped examples as they are much harder to fake with any success. Excellent badge.

Gorgeous Imperial German 1914 Iron Cross First Class. Jeweler quality with a nice convex vaulted shape. The center of the reverse is marked 900 silver and the patina throughout certainly backs this up. Lovely untouched cross with a great look would fit well into advanced collections.

Interesting antique firemen's medal dated October 4-5-6 1923. Very nice fireman artwork on the medallion portion. While fire medals are not particularly rare this one is also notable as it has the ribbon and cockade which are normally all long gone. As can be seen in the images the red ribbon has some damage and the MEMBER bar to the top of the ribbon needs a couple of stitches to reattach to the cockade. However, since I am a purist and an advocate of not fixing antiques I will include the smal...

Nice signals officer visor cap with lemon yellow piping. Interior is marked Deutsche Wertarbeit with the maker logo showing an officer wearing visor cap in profile. There are a couple of minor nips and a bit of roughness to the finish of the front visor but all in all a good looking cap priced accordingly.

Nice porcelain candy dish with a portrait of Hindenburg in uniform with medals. The banner reads Gen.-Feldmarschall von Hindenburg over an iron cross. Surrounding is a stand of arms with Prussian flags, rifles, cannon etc. There is a hairline crack across the lid but still a good looking piece for an Imperial display. Bottom is maker marked "ROYAL RUDOLSTADT Prussia" around a brown and B in shield.

Very interesting horse artillery officer saber by Horstmann and Sons Philadelphia. The blade is deeply patinated and the engraving is difficult to bring out in photographs. Besides the blade the whole package is brass. The scabbard is all brass as well as the handle. Even the grip which at first glance looks like textured fish skin is in fact brass. The Horstmann name is engraved as well as tool punched in. As one might imagine, the large brass content makes this a heavy sword. All in all a fasc...

Very nice early style NSKK motorcycle crash helmet. Eagle plate has cool yellow patina that only nickel seems to get. Nice piece of insignia. The helmet itself is complete. Leather is strong but could benefit from leather conditioner but there is no hurry on that and I prefer to let the long term owner do such treatment. One side ear cover does show some scuffing. Liner is size 58 and complete/undamaged. Front tongue is maker marked Hans Sch- . Nice, scarce helmet.

Very cool ashtray from the famous Copacabana nightclub. Very historic nightclub was the place to be in its heydays of the 1940's and 1950's. Endless stories with celebrities and mafia connections. Great piece of history. As with all my stuff I don't clean it to make it look pretty, I just leave it like I find it.

Miniature second model Luftwaffe Dagger by SMF. Lightly sharpened which is common on these as owners really did like to use them as letter openers. Crisply marked SMF Solingen with logo and marked DRGM. Scabbard shows its age but undamaged. Nice hard to find and scarce mini dagger.

Very nice Social Welfare leader dagger. The only difference with Red Cross leader dagger is the circular holes for the hangers. The only negative is a hairline crack in the grip. There is no wobble at the point of the crack and no missing material. The crack is also old enough to have age darkened (See images). Some very minor spotting to the blade and only a couple of tiny rubs to the finish of the scabbard. Blade is nice and bright with no sharpening. Some gentle spotting as per images. Overal...
