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...

Soft leather holster for a Walther P38. In good, original condition except for the addition of the rawhide strap that has the look of a veteran add on. Markings on back are not pressed on very hard so difficult to make out. Code looks like DKB but last letter is super faint. Below that is a "44" and what looks like a light waffenamt. Honest example.

Field equipment is certainly not my game but I did pick these up at a price where I can certainly leave room for the next guy. Condition is superb. Leather is very fresh and I find no damage. Looks to be a very good set of an item that is becoming hard to find in good order.

These books are really cool when they are all filled in. The book was originally purchased empty and customers could get a photograph with every pack of cigarettes. The photos are colored and very well done and the finished product, with 270 photos, is very impressive. Even the flak image on the front is raised and embossed. This one only has a little over 20 photos so is priced to sell...

Very cool hate belt type of souvenir put together by a veteran after WWII. Some are full of garbage but this one has three neat pieces on it. Nice Luftwaffe belt but some trimming of the leather on the end. The buckle is a nice luftwaffe EM buckle. On the belt are two very nice silver British coins dated 1940 and earlier. Last is a Frauenschaft leader enamel pin/badge, the leader level having blue trim. The enamel on this badge is perfect. Really neat set.

Lovely example of 1st Class Iron Cross. this 1914 version is nicely vaulted and 800 silver. There is a bit of oxidation on the outer edge of the core (Visible in photos). It looks like the last owner applied a touch of oil to deactivate anything that might still be going on. Very nice medal, nonetheless.

Very old souvenir from the Gettysburg battlefield. This metal dish is 5 inches across. In pretty decent detail it shows raised images of the Soldiers' Monument, Meade's Headquarters and the High Water Mark of Pickett's Charge. I think these old souvenirs are really neat because there is always the outside chance that an old veteran bought the piece for his grandchildren on a visit to his old battlefield. Nice piece of nostalgia.

Very nice condition fire police NCO visor cap. Just a small area of where on the rear edge (See final photo). Insignia is nice and sunk in with a been-there-forever look. Nice celluloid maker diamond from a firm that specializes in fire fighting equipment. Stamps designate this hat as being from the Obersalzberg area police force with inspector dates of 1942 and 1943...

Nice example of a classic hat. Correct manufacture for WWII Japanese navy. There is one spot on the top where the reinforcing wire is poking through; I would recommend just snipping it. There is a label missing from the inside. There is a period repair to the seam in the top rear (See photos for the points). Besides these three negatives, which aren't too devastating, a nice, solid and clean hat.

I know WWII British hats aren't too terribly valuable but I bought this a while ago and set it aside just because the badge is just so darned pretty. I suspect this probably dates well before WWII but will err on the side of caution. The badge is mounted on the hat band and the quality is just superb. The felt crown is a pleasure to touch and the anchor could possibly be silver plate but not sure. the whole piece is thick and three dimensional...

Very attractive reproduction of the famous Pour le Merite medal. This is the famous German order (Oddly enough with a French name) known as the Blue Max. Nice, thick ribbon made with metallic silver weave on the sides. One light scratch on the reverse of the medal (See last photo). Very nice filler for display purposes.

Another SS NCO photograph. This one is dated 1934 on the back. Looks like good information written on the back but I have trouble reading it. Koln is about all I can decipher.

Allgemiane NCO Photo. Back stamp designating it as being taken by a member of the Bonn Guild of Professional Photographers. Top rate photo shows good uniform details and a great looking cap on a handsome SS man. Easily a publishable photo.

Nice family postcard photograph with an Allgemaine SS NCO. He is a bit tucked in behind one of the ladies but some cool uniform details are evident including cuff title, collar tabs and a bit of his dagger. Unposted.

These are out of my field of expertise and I am relying on a colleague who identified these for me. He says they are %Rhodesian and hasn't been wrong yet for me but if anyone out there has a different opinion I would much appreciate it. Photos show the pattern and the "busy" areas. Looks like one button has been replaced. That is typical of well used bush combat gear, together with the other repairs shown and the fading.

Nice pair of 1943 dated U.S. Navy BUSHIPS binoculars. Good overall condition. A little dusty since I don't clean anything except my kids and my kitchen.Optics seem to be fine.

Very nice silver grade clasp for Transport and Glider squadrons. Fair amount of silver finish throughout. The back hook is a bit bent. The front is missing the eagle attachment but still looks good as below where that should be is an identical eagle. Has anyone ever figured out why they added an eagle attachment over an identical eagle? At any rate, a cool medal priced accordingly.

No matter what anyone thought of Frank Rizzo, nobody was of little opinion and his years as mayor of Philadelphia were extremely interesting. Rizzo, who graduated step by step from beat cop to mayor, was known for his toughness and one famous photograph showed on his way from a full dress function to a prison riot with a billy club tucked into his tuxedo. This book is a guaranteed good read. Priced half of cover price.
