This is really a beautiful hunting knife. This is an older model which varies slightly from newer offerings but most noticeably in the grip. This one has a nice, slightly opaque jade with a very subtle ripple pattern that I hope photographed OK. From tip to bottom a little over a foot long. This was never used and in superb condition but, since it is not brand new the blade does areas where the surface color looks a little different then the other areas...

Very interesting version of a 1914 Iron Cross. This is probably a jeweler made piece maybe intended as jewelry for the wife of an Iron Cross winner. That is just a theory. 800 marked on the pin catch and an interesting, smooth matte black finish to the front. About 15mm in diameter. Very nice item for someone who collects iron crosses specifically.

Nice, unissued gas mask canister with cardboard wrap. I have a few of these so this exact example is likely not what will be received but they are all basically the same. The cardboard wrap was not meant as a permanent addition and tend to unglue so these may not be attached when received but can probably be reglued. Nice piece of equipment priced right.

Very nice Deutscher Turnerbund belt buckle. This organization was the German Athletic Association and had many sports under its jurisdiction. The belt buckle design is 4 "f"s at right angles. These stand for the the organization motto Frisch, Froh, Fromm and Frei whic translates to Fresh, Happy, Pious and Free. This buckle is a high quality brass example. Two solder points hold the silvered device in place. the device is a fancier example then usual with ribbed "F"s...

Very interesting Imperial German dog tag. This is the second of 2 that I recently found and both look to be from the same area and in the same unit. Lovely script engraving that I have not seen before. All I have previously seen are block letter typed. Looks like Johannes Gerhhardt from a Bremen address. DOB is 15.5.72. Ersatz battalion Ldw J R 72 Gen H No 2837. Really a nice, unique piece...

Very interesting Imperial German dog tag. Lovely script engraving that I have not seen before. All I have previously seen are blobk letter typed. Looks like Heinrich Selchert from a Bremen address. DOB is 9.2.72. Ersatz battalion Ldw J R 72 Gen H No 2902. Really a nice, unique piece. If this fellow was going to war in 1914 he would have been 42 so I am assuming he may have had money for a "prettier" dog tag and was some sort of specialist...

This is a reproduction Waffen SS overseas cap meant for display, educational or even reenactment use. It is nothing that would fool a knowledgeable collector but not everyone can afford the real thing for display purposes...

Very interesting medal and a good display of Spanish colors. Front has, under a gold crown, an enamel roundel with the lettering ENSENANZA MILITAR with the bust of a Spartan warrior. This is on a very three dimensional ribbon which has about 3/4 inch depth with ends of nice, high quality bullion. Reverse has a nice pinback assembly. All in overall excellent condition as per photos. This comes with a 4 1/2 x 3 1/4 inch photo of a Spanish soldier with the medal being worn. This photograph does hav...

Very nice early quality war merit cross first class without swords. Nice example without swords. This is a far scarcer award then with swords. Back marked 1 for Deschler. High quality medal all around.

Great looking alpine "cappello" for WWII Italian officer. Nice looking hat with generally good form throughout. Very nice officer type black eagle. Leatherette band 15 stars of varioustones. The smaller are all the same size but vary from gold to silver to blackened. Really an interesting look. Below that is an even cooler green, white and red cord in a very intricate braid that must have taken forever to get just right. The side sports a leather tube to accept the obligatory feather with a nice...

Really a very nice funeral sash in great condition. Reads "Die Kamraden aus Tirol" or "The comrades from the Tirol". The ownership of the Tyrol area has often been disputed between Germany and Italy and is a beautiful, mountainous Alpine area giving this sash a likely mountain troop connection. There are two tiny nips on one of the sewn on swazs. Each end has a nice gold fringe. The lettering on these are typically screen printed but this lettering has some depth to it and really looks embroider...

Bizarre and very cool tinnie by Paulmann & Crone. Deutsch-Englische Frontkampfer Treffen Sept 1935. I have looked into this and it does seem that a small delegation of British went to Germany to check on how German veteran groups were structured and handled. This may or may not have been in conjunction with the rally that would have been held at about that time. Very cool tinnie that I have never seen nor heard of before I found this one. Nice solid metal construction 38mm.

This is a second Waffen SS 1944 Der Soldatenfreund. These are hard to find and this actually came from the same place as the other I have listed. These were pocket handbooks and are always well worn when found as they were cheaply made and likely spent time in the bottom of rucksacks on the Eastern front. Pages are delicate as again, they were not made with the best of materials. The back page is loose as is the other example I have listed. The front part is a personal journal. This fellow was n...

Some items are cool beyond their value and this is one of this pieces where we say "Oh if it could talk...". Super looking German entrenching tool (Shovel) that just screams western front trench warfare. The blade has two marks which I take to be a manufacturer mark and military acceptance mark. The date is a little rubbed out but looks like 1915. 1915 is also impressed into the handle wood. The leather blade cover and is also maker marked and dated 1916. The stampings are crisp but I can't make...

Cool set of Vietnam era handcuffs. A friend bought these from the veteran. There is a bit of surface oxidation in spots but would clean up quickly with a spot of oil. Key does work fine on both sides. Original leather belt holder and two of the fellow's name tags. Nice heavy duty set.
