Very interesting Horster officer sword. Made for a Dutch officer as "Eisenhower" has become the Dutch form YZERHOUWER. In either language it is a reference to the highest quality of steel being used. The blade on this example has no negatives I can find. Mirror bright throughout with no greying or oxidation. The Horster logo is beneath the langet. The scabbard has no dents and only minimal pain loss and crazing (See photos). The unfixed ring dates this either Weimar or Third Reich period. The ea...

Hitler Youth document from March of 1943. This certificate basically amounts to a certified pledge of allegiance. Just like the army's pledge, the problem here is that the youth is not pledging allegiance to his/her country but to the person of Adolf Hitler. Obviously this caused all kinds of trouble when The Fuhrer turned out to be more then a little bit problematic. In my opinion this is an important document, the significance of which goes well beyond the normal HJ documents for minor awards ...

Lovely German antler rack with Black Forest style wood mount. This rack is on the small side and oddly shaped. I know misshapen antlers such as this do have a niche collector base. The mount is a pressed wood particle composite that was just begginning to be used for this purpose in the 1920's. This one has a sticker on the back that is mostly rubbed off and illegible. I have another rack that is the same style and the sticker is legible on that one (See last photo on this listing). On this stic...

Very nice mounted antler rack. This is a nice set of antlers typical to German deer. This is actually a rather good size pair measuring 8 inches from base of antler to the tip. The tag on the back indicates that the wood mount was made in Austria. Interestingly it specifically mentions Osterreich which was the name used for Austria from the beginning of German occupation to the end of WWII in 1945. This is helpful as it pinpoints the exact age of this set of antlers to 1945 at the latest. The wo...

Nice matched pair of fire police shoulder boards. Tunic removed and no mothing. Not terribly rare but certainly priced right.

Perfectly respectable fire police dagger. Scarcer, short version. Blade is nice but has some dried grease that could easily clean off for the next guy. Undented scabbard does show some wear but original paint remains largely intact. Reasonable example priced to sell.

Double decal Luftwaffe helmet. Outside shows fair amount of good, honest wear. Wear is mostly on top where front line soldiers would sit on it in the field. While this is a well worn helmet there is something good to be said about decals that are so very obviously righteous. These are melted in just right, match wear spots that connect with them and have a real pleasing crackle pattern. Liner is complete but shows wear perfectly in line with the outside of the helmet. Chinstrap is gone but these...

Very cool grouping including a USMC Mameluke engraved to Charles Lee Morrow and three wall plaques for excellent service in Vietnam. Interestingly, although the plaques show some wear (See photos) they are each from a different Marine Corps division, the 1st, 3rd and 7th. The rank given on two of the plaques is Captain and each is engraved again with his name. The 1st Division plaque specifies service in Vietnam 1968-1969. The plaque from the 7th Division is the most interesting and reads "PRESE...

Very nice Italian Order of the Crown. This is the neck order in gold and is a very attractive medal overall. There is one spot of very minor chipping to the enamel on the front right arm. This is not very noticeable and detracts very little. Terrific overall enamel work with inset stones. This order was instituted at the end of the 19th century. This example is consistent with WWII era. Lovely medal.

This is a plaque I have not seen before so I imagine it is relatively scarce. Central is the DAF cogwheel emblem above which are workers; Industriasl worker, doctor and delivery man maybe. Below is the slogan "Ehret die Arbeit und achtet den Arbeiter ADOLF HITLER" which basically translates to "Adolf Hitler honors the work and respects the employees". How nice. The actual plate measures 15cmx10cm. Marked on lower left FERD (?) WAGNER PFURZHEIM and again below the figures MULLER-ERFURT. I imagine...

Cool cut glass ashtray with anti-fascist message. "JAM YOUR CIGARETTE BUTTS ON THIS VULTURE". Of course the vulture is Mussolini with a swaz beside his head. Cute item.

Here is a great item for the guy who understands the importance of this unit. We recently bought a collection and this belonged to the owner. He was sent to Europe right after the war and the unit was interrogating Nazis and gauging political climate and ramifications in post war Europe. This collection was really full of unique and interesting items rarely encountered, but this plaque was actually from his unit in the 1107th ARASU. I know two things about this unit. First, the 150 attachment wa...

Exceptional quality Indo Persian shield dating to late 18th or early 19th century. Gold and silver floral design throughout obverse. At one point gold and silver relief was entirely offset by fine black enamel work. Over the centuries the black enamel has largely worn from the center, raised section but remains thick on the lower, outer portions. This does afford the piece an honest and tasteful aged appearance. The center shows four raised bosses backed on the reverse solid hexagonal bolts pier...

Interesting hat cockade for Ukranian volunteers serving with German forces during WWII. Due to Soviet treatment of Ukrainian populace (As well as other locals) many Ukraninians first considered the Germans to be liberators and quickly volunteered. To give them a sense of identity this badge was authorized for wear by those volunteers. A couple of light dings to the blue paint on front, otherwise in perfect condition. Both prongs are there on the back; They are just folded together. A nice item a...
