Nice little silk Japanese flag with very interesting telescoping pole. The flag is about 35x24cm. I do think this flag is WWII vintage. I have married this up with the pole which I do think is post was but very interesting. The attached photos show it first at full length of three sections. The last section telescopes telescopes into the second. This combination unscrews from the bottom section and if turned around will screw in inside the bottom. Very clever...

Nice two place Baden medal bar. The Baden service medal shows some bubbling of the finish. The iron cross is a beauty with a very strange hallmark. It is hard to make out but looks like it is probably the WILM hallmark which is an odd variant. If not it is just some other weird variant so cool regardless. Lovely cross if you are one looking for different variants.

Very cool set of EON Greek fascist youth stickpins. One each of black, gold and silver. Hard to find and extremely interesting insignia.

Strange optic device that I have not had much luck in figuring out. The device itself has typical German feldgrau green paint. Marked R.F. 3x12.5 FENNEL KASSEL 141 with a large hand painted 25. There is a finger twist screw in nut to attach it to some sort of equipment. The optics are nice and clean and shows 6 lines forming a cross hair of sorts. The form fit case is typical German military with a belt loop and spring tightened closure strap...

Perfectly self respecting steel Waffen SS Belt Buckle by Rod. Very nice example with good amount of field green combat type paint. Just perfect if one likes the cross between combat used and decent condition. I sure do.

Great looking Ames Peace Flask. Top is lightly marked NP Ames. The 1838 is correctly on the other side but too light to photograph on a dark background. It is there, though. Patina is darker on one side, probably from laying one direction for decades in its last home. Most interestingly is the strap that I have never actually seen on one of these. The tip end piece on the tip is missing but this is figured into the price and balanced with the presence of the strap...

Nice looking HJ Winter Service Cap. Shell is in great shape. The liner is well used and looks it but generally in good shape. A bit worn out in the direct back (Next to last photo). Modeled after the military M43 this is designed so the fold up flaps can be pulled down and buckled under the chin in cold weather to cover the ears. Nice, honest example.

Very attractive medal reading BATTAGLIONE GENIO PIONIERI "CENTAURO", which of course refers to the engineer battalion of the Centauro Division. In the middle of this wording is the unit emblem of the centaur shooting an arrow. On the reverse is a nice rendition of what seems to be a tank using a plow to clear a path through obstructions and a pontoon bridge in background; Both good engineer references. The Centauro Division was formed in early 1939 by expanding the 1st Armoured Brigade Corazzata...

Terrific item. Funeral sash from the services of Gauleiter Joseph Burckel. Burckel was an interesting figure who ran afoul of the Nazi regime towards the end. Supposedly he and his wife both committed suicide together but there also is speculation that they were "offed" by the regime and the turmoil following the July bomb plot. Whatever the case may be Burckel was certainly a power player for a ling time and this is a piece of real interest. Condition is terrific with some wear to the lettering...

Terrific silver wound badge by L/11 Wilhelm Deumer. Early high quality silver plated tombac personalized with soldier's name: Kagelmann. So fun to find early personalized items that are obviously real. This was probably awarded for service in 1939 or 1940. Great item for even advanced collections.

What a wonderful item celebrating its 100th anniversary. As the British were approaching Christmas in the first year of the war Princess Mary commissioned these to be made and sent to British soldiers. There were far too many in uniform to all get one so there was a prioritization method. Princess Mary went to great effort to show her appreciation and solidarity to British soldiers in many other ways including visiting the wounded in hospitals...

Ein Kampf um Deutschland 1933. Wow, what a cool and historically significant piece. This is an early 1933 magazine probably put together if not released before the seizure of power as it very closely follows the propaganda of that rise to power where they were instilling fear in the people and presenting themselves as the force that could save them. This extremely interesting 31 page magazine is stuffed with virulent propaganda covering the infectious spread of communism and presenting issues su...

Very nice pair of 'swallow's nests' for army musician. Front shows rich silver brocade with army green backing. The reverse has a black backing. Condition is excellent throughout. If one looks very closely at the top the brocade looks a bit raw at the ends but it just wasn't really finished off experlty when it was cut. This is very subtle and not damage as it is clearly consistent throughout both sides and just simply how it was made. Tip to tip each piece is just a hair over 26cm long. Really ...

Very interesting lapel pin of an me110 twin engine fighter. Nice, big thing with a wingspan just a bit over 5cm. Typical German construction. Very nice stickpin that I have not seen before.

Interesting tinnie showing Potsdam Garrison Church with the dates March 21 1933 and March 21 1934. This tinnie is commemorating one year in power for the Nazi party. This is actually a scarce tinnie showing the same dates and motif as the 5 Reichsmark coin. Nice, early and significant tinnie.

Very nice SA tinnie. This was for a sports event for SA Gruppe Hochland in 1938. Good design with a sword resting on an oak leaf wreath very reminiscent of the SA sports award. Maker marked RZM M9/3 LAUER NUREMBERG. It is interesting that 1937 and 1938 are when we see transitional daggers as well with both RZM code and maker name.

Nice DAF tinnie for a 1934 even in W├╝rttemberg Hohenzollern. I believe this 16 day event was roughly equivalent to a job fair. Early in the new regime employment was a major concern as mass unemployment was a leading downfall in public acceptance of the Wiemar government. Of course it was not long at all before rearmament became the wonder drug for unemployment. Followed of course by employment with the armed services. Interesting how sometimes problems are just replaced by bigger problems. At ...
