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.

Nice informative book on the classic Me109 fighter. Lots of good text suitable for beginner or experienced historians. While it was eclipsed during the war by other fighters the 109 probably remains the most iconic single engine aircraft of the war. Used condition with worn dust jacket.

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.

EM NCO breast eagle with a great look. Some stitching thread remains along the border. The patch itself is in fine shape except for one tiny pull on the eagle's left wing (Viewer's right) which is very minor and can be seen in the first attached image. I love these tunic removed pieces and will take this any day over a factory roll example. Great front line look.

Very nice set of Russian navy dagger hangers. I do believe these are WWII. If they are later it is not by much and I have these priced low regardless. Condition is terrific with gold wash on all metal fittings showing the most minimal of aging. Fittings are the same on both except for the swivel hook correctly present on the smaller strap. The buckles, modeled very closely on their German counterparts have anchors instead of lions (Who ever saw a lion swimming anyway?). The fabdric straps are a ...

Nice naval stickpin. Nicely detailed life preserver with a red cockade in the center. An gold washed anchor is hanging from this with the whole rig mounted on a stickpin. I think this looks German but maybe wrong (Please let me know). Nicely detailed nautical piece.

Very nice Der Stahlhelm button. Condition is great with perfect finish to front. Wording around the shank on the reverse is: Wirtsch: A. St. D Bundesleitung Ges Gesch. The second image is straight on with the flash to show the lettering. The last image is a better representation of the actual tone and color. The veteran groups were often disaffected x-soldiers who were called upon to provide pre-organized muscle for various political factions who often settled their differences on the streets. I...

Armored assault badge by EWE. This is a very scarce and unknown maker who seemed to be working out of Austria. Unfortunately the pin and the hook are missing while the pin hinge remains in place. I almost suspect that the GI souvenir hunter ripped it right off of some poor guys uniform without spending the time to unhook it. The front shows a white mark strangely located right on the eagle's crotch. That could probably be cleaned up easily but repairing the pin would need the help of someone who...

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. It is a good bit darker then it looks in the photographs but the three red fields at the bot...

Very cool tortoise shell style Bakelite goggles. Shown here with my personal assistant Betty who hasn't complained about anything in years. I have seen many various ages assigned to these but I think they are 19040's to early 1950's but are currently very much in fashion with "steampunk" style. I have also seen these advertised as motorcycle and aviation goggles which may very well be accurate as there was not a well entrenched eye wear industry for those fields but I think the intended use is a...

Very nice Bundeswehr A-frame. This is a very good representation of the war time product. Straps match and are riveted in place the same but one is dated 1953 and the other 1963. I imagine some reenactors who don't want to spend close to $1000 and use a WWII example would like a real one instead of a reproduction made in some southeast third world country. Besides the dates on the straps there is one mark that reads P-Bln (An ormored battalion of some unit maybe?) and another rectangular stamp t...

Very cool and extremely rare yearbook for the First Torpedo Boat Flotilla. The Wiemar navy at this time was very small and Germany was still heavily restricted in the size of its navy by the Versailles treaty. As many navies have figured out, it was quickly seen that with smaller torpedo boats it was possible to pack a lot of offensive punch into a small craft. This is a similar theory to the American PT boats. A rare enough item that I was only able to find even one other example for sale in Ge...

German postmark stamper in excellent condition. This number 219859 was used by three different Kolonne 64th Regiments. The first was Infantrie-Regiment 64 which was "gestricken". The Schutzen-Regiment 64 and then Panzergrenadier-Regiment 64 which was also "gestricken" but this time in Stalingrad. No actual translation is necessary for "gestricken". Perhaps there was something unlucky about this particular stamper? It was then given three different SS artillery assignments. This list with a copy ...

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.

Partial cap tally for the German Norddeutscher Lloyd shipping line. This is a pre-war example. While it is a partial and only about 24cm long it is priced low and is a great reference piece to show how the stitching was done. The flag is the shipping line logo and is really nicely embroidered. Very cheap way to get a nice back piece for a nautical related display.

Very nice Reichskriegerbund member visor cap. The NS-RKB was the Third Reich manifestation of the veterans organizations originally formed for veterans of the 1870 war. The intent was to have a support and social group dedicated to helping veterans. A noble thought that most countries with combat veterans also employ. However, in post WWI Germany the veteran groups had real political clout and were often the pre-organized muscle behind various political movements. This cap has the 1938 version o...

This postcard is from a series released in 1941 featuring many different badges and awards. Really a great series with artwork just begging to be used for displaying a good armored assault badge. Shows a nice portrait of panzerman in early beret with a tank in action behind and the assault badge lower right. Unused so reverse is blank. If you are feeling extravagant you could even use this to surprise a friend with a fun piece of mail.

Very interesting SA postcard with cool cover art and nice cancelled stamps. Most interestingly this was sent to a fellow in New York. The card is in English and is generally about stamp and postcard collecting strategies. However, at the end Johanna tells Frank she will be home in a few week and that "I have to tell you a lot". Of course we wonder if this has to do with scary things that are becoming very obvious by the latter half of 1938 but we assume it is something that would not pass censor...

Visually stunning bronze table medal depicting Victory, wielding a sword and with hair flowing behind, riding a tank over barbed wire and trenches. Beautiful, solid piece measuring just under 7cm in diameter. Signed A. Morlon. Edge is stamped "BRONZE" and with a tiny cornucopia which I believe represents the Paris mint. Reverse depicts a shield over extensive laurel leaves. One side represents attack and the other defense. Really very powerful imagery.

Very nice map produced in 1944 by the U.S. Army Map Service. Taihoku, West SW, Formosa. "Prepared under the direction of the Chief of Engineers...". Top reads "For use by War and navy Department Agencies only. Not for sale or distribution". I am assuming the statute of limitations is up on this. Condition is great but there are obviously fold creases. Otherwise nice and clean.

Printed on blue oilcloth to make it strong and weatherproof. The cover has the specific information on the parachute and the unit.

Nice example.

This is a 1944 dated map from the U.S. Army map service. The area is Fountainebleau which is a bit southeast of Paris. The interesting point is that it looks like it was combat used. There are a few different infantry and armored units penciled in. In the northeast corner of the map there is an armored unit with an arrow indicating the line of advance but a ? mark indicating they weren't sure of the unit's identity when the situation was being reviewed. An interesting little snapshot in a likely...

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.

Very nice example of the 1914-1915 Great War medal. Japan's involvement in WWI was minimal, amounting to taking an island colony from Germany, so this is a not too common medal. Nice example in perfect shape except for pinhole in the ribbon that looks to have been caused by the rear attachment end rubbing the back of the ribbon. Really a nice looking medal. The recipient's name is on the rear of the box. We believe the family name is Hirokawa but can't make out the rest. Very nice medal.

Very nice early 1847 pattern Prussian Belt and buckle. This pattern was used through 1895. Attached sixth image shows the reverse with solder points. The buckle is quite attached to the leather so I decided not to remove it for photos. Rare to find with the proper leather belt. There is one scrunched edge on the leather as well as a small square from an old price sticker. Very nice, early belt.

Very interesting WWII Ostland Eisen revenue trade chits. These were used in Germany as well as eastern occupied areas such as Russia, Poland, Western Ukraine and were used as an exchange chit for trading agricultural goods for steel or iron. I do not know the particular details but that is the gist. There a couple of different watermarks and one that was glued on something along the way. They look to be very nonchalantly cut but the basic size is 4x6cm. Very cool looking and interesting pieces.

This is a shame because otherwise these grips are in great shape with no cracking or warping and nice, unworn checking. I hope "W" feels bad for what he did.

Great looking shoulder board for German Lieutenant General. Very rich gold and silver Russial braid with red backing. One third from the top is a large single pip (About 23mm wide) indicating the rank above General Major. The pip shows gentle age wear and the red backing has one tiny moth nip about 1x2mm (See last image). This is very tiny and does almost nothing in detracting from this great looking shoulder board. If only it could talk. Nice item.

Some moderate age wear that I think just makes it as cool as can be. See photos for condition. Great look all around.
