Nice wound badge and matching document. Document is in decent shape with the usual crease down the middle. For its age the corners are reasonably sharp and there are no tears or missing material. The last name looks like Kargelain. I can't make out the unit but it looks like it starts with "mg" so possibly a machine gunner? Dated October 5, 1918. The wound badge is very attractive example with nice raised details...

WWI USN dog tag. It is on what appears to be the original chain which is, unfortunately broken. Obverse includes name, Frank Brody as well as what I assume are his birthdate and maybe date of entry to the Navy: 9-1-97 and 6-18-18. USNRF was the US Naval Reserve Force. The reverse shows Frank's thumbprint. Nice piece of WWI history.

Very nice Prussian NCO pickelhaube with brass fittings. Very nice matching patina to plate, spike and rear spine. Interior is all original with no signs of tampering. There is a stamp in the leather of the rear visor. It is light and the first letter is unrecognizable, after the first letter it looks like K.75 . The negatives are that the cockade is missing on both sides and the stitching of both visors is gone...

Lovely Imperial German four place stickpin. The first medal is a nice enamel 1914 iron cross but the prize in the row is the second medal which is a lovely Bavarian merit cross with very fine detail and nice blue enamel arms. The row is finished by a Hindenburg Cross and a black wound badge. Very nice lapel pin intended for wear by the recipient of these medals while in civilian clothes.

Very nice all original M16 German Helmet. Great example in untouched example. Strong finish on the outside. Rivets are nice and tight and never tampered with. Soldier's name on the rear looks like Blankenberg. Maker and size marked TJ66 for C. Thiel & Soehne, Luebeck. There is damage to the front two liner tongues. The chinstrap is included but I took it off for preservation; See last photo. Very nice helmet.

Very nice WWI camouflage M16 helmet. Gentler camo pattern then found on most German helmets but a very nice and very undoubtable overall package. Some paint loss due to age and wear and a rub here and there but a great overall look. The liner is complete with pads except for damage to one of the six tongues tongues (Image 5) and small chips to two others. The manufacturer mark looks like TJ 66 for C. Thiel & Soehne, Luebeck...

I believe this to be a horseshoe cleaner. During WWI armies were extremely reliant on horsepower for mobility. This was a fact even in WWII far more then most realize. This is a simple blunt iron blade on a wood hilt. The "blade" is slightly curved but with an exaggerated hook on the end. The blade is dated 1916. There is also a maker logo on the ricasso. It is very light only only a few letters are visible on the right side around the image of a horse. Interesting item.

Terrific quality GIL leader dagger. GIL was the Fascist youth movement and basically equivalent to the Hitler Youth. This dagger also includes the extremely hard to find leather hanger. These hangers were not particularly well made and the leather used is a bit flimsy so few have survived the decades. This set looks to have been together for the duration...

Terrific example by A C Co which is far scarcer then LF&C. This M1917 trench knife (Also known as The Knuckle Duster) has a nice, smooth, unsharpened triangular blade. The knuckle guard is clean as a whistle and backmarked A.C.Co. USA 1917. The grip shows a nice, healthy wood mostly free of damage except for 5 notches that look intentionally placed. The hard to find scabbard is in similar solid condition with all rivets in place...

Very nice set of 16 color prints that would look great framed in the Man Cave. Except for one showing a signals unit hanging communication wire they are all combat related. Tropical to winter, infantry, tanks, artillery, assault boats, flamethrowers, grenades, machine guns etc. Basically anything heer related. The paper is overall crisp and clean but a few have small folded over corners from previous owners being careless when closing the envelope...

Superb item. The top of the sake cup reads "Prize". Writing around the rim on the outside translates to Showa 8 (1938) Warship Kaga. I am not sure what this was awarded for but I would assume it had something to do with some military skill. The Kaga was one of the four aircraft carriers sunk in the Battle of Midway which was the turning point in the Pacific war so this attribution is really a very significant point. A really nice item which would be at home in even an advanced collection.

Interesting set of two Romanian WWII medals. The first is for the anti-communist crusade they were forced to join in 1941. The second is from when the first crusade failed and they were again forced to join the war against Germany. The pair makes for an interesting conversation point.

Very cool uncut roll of Japanese 2nd Class Private collar insignia. This is one of my Tokyo flea market finds. On the outside layer there are five sets of two tabs. I counted 47 layers, give or take a few because it is a tight roll and not easy to count. The layers get smaller towards the middle but there should be somewhere around 175 pairs so I am pricing at one dollar per pair. Fun to find unused gear out if the woodwork.

Very nice enamel cross for a veterans' organization member's 25 years of service. Really very nice enamel work. This is a good sized medal shown with a penny for size comparison. Just 2 or 3 mm shorter wingspan then a 1939 iron cross.

Nice two place Baden medal bar. The Baden service medal shows some bubbling of the finish. The iron cross is a beauty with a very strange hallmark. It is hard to make out but looks like it is probably the WILM hallmark which is an odd variant. If not it is just some other weird variant so cool regardless. Lovely cross if you are one looking for different variants.

Very attractive medal reading BATTAGLIONE GENIO PIONIERI "CENTAURO", which of course refers to the engineer battalion of the Centauro Division. In the middle of this wording is the unit emblem of the centaur shooting an arrow. On the reverse is a nice rendition of what seems to be a tank using a plow to clear a path through obstructions and a pontoon bridge in background; Both good engineer references. The Centauro Division was formed in early 1939 by expanding the 1st Armoured Brigade Corazzata...
