Very interesting helmet. Many Dutch helmets were used by foreighn volunteers fighting with the Germans. When not in use by Dutch soldiers the lion crest was generally removed. The fact that it remains here indicates this was possibly used by Dutch SS voluntees. The camouflage paint job is certainly old and period and the name label being German corroborates. Whatever its story may be this is a fascinating helmet. Liner is fine but metal buckles are well rusted.

Interesting doeskin jacket. Definitely old and definitely real but has a Hitler Youth diamond pin and gold lettered Hitler Youth district triangle. All buttons are HJ DJ buttons. I can't think of anybody spuriously putting the boys' triangle on when the girls' is cheaper. I am leaning toward this being worn by a woman who was involved with the Hitler Youth and don't see any reason why this is not possible. A couple of spots on the back look like something that could be scraped off (I touch nothi...

Nice mint set of matched visor cap insignia includes eagle, cockade and wreath. Just a slight bit of age oxidation to the side of the cockade, unavoidable with the material it is made of. Eagle and wreath are mint. One of those things that is very hard to find when needed.

Very rare, hard to find tunic. Text book four button wool construction with upward sloping pockets. In great condition throughout. The only negative I find is that the stamp below the color is not very clear. This type of sleeve insignia was introduced in 1943. With no border on the Org Todt armband this was for EM or NCO; I would assume NCO with the red tress around the color. Great example of a very rare item.

Neat leather tinnie for Gau Tag 1935 Darmstadt. Leather is always a neat variation, but as usual the pin is repaired.

Obviously, this is important. For the price of a decent army dagger one can own a unique piece of history. I am sorry to have to block part of the image but for now I have paid for it and own it (It wasn't cheap). From his outfit and I would assume pre-war. If anyone knows who he is meeting with, input would be much appreciated. This came out of a very interesting grouping I recently acquired including photos and very early NSDAP photograph postcards from the 1923 Deutschertag Nurnberg with Hoff...

Lineol radio operator. No, he isn't shotting a gun but he's still cool. Tiny crack to neck but no wobble there. Some paint scuffing but still very presentable. These things sure are fun.

Very cool Elastolin soldier. The usual light couple of cracks and some light paint scuffs but still very presentable. The guys firing the machine guns are cool but I don't recall seeing the guy walking with the machine gun before. He looks to be getting ready for business.

Excellent mid-war complete uniform for army artillery leutnant, right down to the suspenders and boots. Because of the detailed photography necessary I am splitting this into two separate listings. The fabric throughout is perfect, fresh and undamaged. This uniform was well cared for, possibly right off the rack as the tailor tag is still in the pocket (In French) and the label sewn in the inside pocket has the same tailor emblem (JB). The best way to describe this is to point out the few negati...

First pattern SA sports badge.The bad news is the 4 oxidation spots on the front. The good news is that this is the first pattern used from March 1934 to January 1935. It is also a premier maker, Lauer, Nurnberg - Berlin. Over a million sports badges were awarded so 29292 is very low. Really a very nice example.

This buckle is just about perfect so not much to say. I know someone could find some little ping or little scratch so I will call it near mint. It is just about perfect and I doubt a better could be found. This is out of my collection.

This classic book is a pictorial history of the NSDAP and Hitler's rise to power. It is another of those interesting books with separately attached photos. While in decent overall shape, I find this one is missing 6 of 225 photos. Many are not attached tightly as the original owner seems to have had an e light touch with the glue. The cover must also have been cracked on the front inside as the binding is retaped there. Priced accordingly. No matter what one thinks of the NSDAP, the rise to powe...

Overseas navy cap. The cockade looks a little weird like it was replaced somewhere along the way. Other then that everything is real and original on a nice Kriegsmarine side cap, priced accordingly. Name "Berger" written onthe inside.

Very cool trench art ashtray. The match holder at the top is engraved on both sides. One side shows a crown and reads "NEDERLAND HERRUST". The other side reads "BEVRUDING SPEKH-HEIDE 17 SPETEMBER 1944". I belive "Bevruding" should be "Bevrijding" which means "Liberation". The date of Sept 17, 1945 coincides with the begginning of Operation Market Garden. The interesting point here is that Market Garden was not much of a success and the failure to finish this battle as planned was immortalized in...
