On first sight one would think that due to simple physics only a dummy would have a square coffee cup. I found Bill O'Hara online and it is clear that he was no dummy. Bill O'Hara left school early to join the merchant marines in WWII where he served in Europe and the Phillipine Sea. He later joined the U.S. Army and was in the Korean conflict early, being awarded a purple heart for wound in 1950...

Interesting Wehrpass. Not much filled out byut it appears this fellow, Robert Alois Flassenberg, was witht he recruiting department or Wehrbezicks Kommando. More interestingly, this group was in Hagenau (As seen on the stamps and entries both). This was the town shown in Band of Brothers. This town stayed in German hands until almost the end of the war and wwas featured in one of the later episodes "The Last Patrol"...

Two signed prints featuring Felix Von Luckner. One of the more inspirational figures of WWI, this enterprising captain was a famous commerce raider sailing a three masted ship with hidden engines and armament. He had a knack for being successful while minimizing casualties which made him universally popular. While he is famous as a raider he did also fight in some conventional engagements including the Battle of Jutland...

This eagle is rare enough it took me over a year to figure out what it was. Worn by French volunteer police acting as security at the U-Boat pens La Pallice. Very rare patch almost impossible to find in condition. This has paper residue on reverse from being in a photo album. There are stitch holes along the perimeter from when it was sewn on a uniform. Great item.

Nice fire police patch. Town name is Losheim which is interesting as this was the town in the vicinity of the major effore of during the Ardennes offensive (Not Bastogne).

Nice quality leather holster for the German grenade launcher. Generally in good condition with original sling and internal leather dividers. The leather tongues at the top sides are a little floppy but are still there and undamaged. Certainly a nice example.

Nice Luftwaffe DD. The eagle side, unfortunately, has a mostly rubbed out decal with a few parts and the general shape still visible. The tri-color side is a terrific looking decal with a cool crackle pattern to the crazing. The shell overall has a nice original finish with pleasant signs of age wear (Greatly exaggerated in my photos because I use a heavy flash for my photography). Maker and size marked SE64 for Sachsishe Emaillerwerke, Lauter...

Extremely nice Iron Cross First Class. Pin is hallmarked 18 for the firm Karl Wurster KC, Markneukirchen. Great overall look with just the gentlest of oxidation along the beaded edge and in the corners right where you expect to see it. This is very light and, if anything, I would say adds to the overall appeal. If the back has ever been cleaned it was a very long time ago. I can find nothing negative to say on this fine looking EK1.

Nice cuff title (Or cufftitle) as worn by land customs official. Shows usage wear as per photos. Some threads remaining from when it was sewn on a uniform. Well made with both top and bottom trim and the eagle made from a rich silver aluminum wire. Light wear to the top and bottom wire trim but still an attractive cufftitle with a great look if you like used and tunic removed items.

This is not my area of expertise. This Russian navy belt does look to have some age but I am unable to date it. It is lovely brocade so should be a welcome addition to a collection.

Really, really nice transitional helmet. I am calling it a double decal as it was issued as such. Most likely the national tri-color shield was removed when regulations dicated this to be done. It was a smooth even job done without damaging the helmet but traces of this decal do remain quite clearly (See photos). The Wehrmacht eagle decal to the left is in great shape. The finish is very strong throughout but as most 70+ year old hlmets are, there is some wear to the finish...

These are neat tinnies from a series that replicated miniature plastic versions of HJ equipment. Looks like the original string. Nice item.

Very interesting piece of trench art with a very unfortunate antisemitic carving. The front shows three caricatures. The first is the typical propaganda driven version of a Jewish man scheming with a vulture. To the right of that pair is a donkey reading a newspaper (maybe the Huffington Post?) and a capitalist pig complete with tuxedo, cigar and lapel flower. The reverse side has the date May 13, 1943...

Very nice pair of leather shin guards for horseback riding. These are typical of the type that Japanese officer's would wear and sure enough, each piece has written inside "Second Lieutenant of Infantry Nishimura Katsujiro in very nice, clear writing. Named gear is always fun and these would look superb with an appropriate uniform. Condition is terrific throughout with only the mildest signs of age and use. Straps and buckles are all present and leather is soft, supple and nicely toned...

Very nice Russian belt and buckle. Buckle is clean and in good condition. The brocade is lovely and has a real nice toned patina. Two clips for sword or dagger hangers. Some parts of the reverse are age faded a bit more then others but still really a great looking rig.

Interesting piece of miscellaneous electronic equipment. I believe this basically equates to a voltmeter. The actual instrument looks fine but the insulation on the wire has not stood the test of time. Might still work but probably not very safely. Nice looking army eagle and abbreviation on front. The case is really nice. Very slightly out of shape but no real damage. All stitching is intact and strap and buckle are fine. Leather is still soft and supple. Metal reinforced lid has directions on ...
