Interesting bright red sash with kanji that translates to "Naval Aircraft Technician". I believe this would be worn on the flight deck in a similar manner that we still have different color shirts for maintenance, fire control etc. This way the confusion of a bustling aircraft carrier flight deck is a little easier to figure out...

Very rare 1930's private purchase USMC EGA cap insignia (Eagle, Globe and Anchor). Terrific detail throughout with longitudinal and latitudinal lines. The eagle's right wing reverse has the MEYER METAL logo and the reverse of the left wing has the NS Meyer shield logo. The lower right corner of the eagle is darker then the rest of the EGA. Presumably this had something to do with how it was stored but whatever the reason my golden rule is to just leave it alone...

This is a very nice looking Austro-Hungarian badge from WWI. The front reads 1915 BELGRAD 3 ARMEE (Translation is obvious) and a landscape with significant landmarks. I am not sure of the exact purpose of this badge but it is high quality in both detail and composition (Tombak) and is good sized at 6cm x 3cm. The reverse has a very detailed maker mark reading: Entw. v. Rich. Assmann, Ausgef. v. Atelier Gurschner, Wien VII/2, Lindengasse 9. Very attractive WWI related badge at a bargain price.

Nice cockade for Luftschutz visor cap. Nice, even silver wash to the wreath with very gentle rub wear to the high relief of the oak leaves. Red felt center is complete. Multiple piece construction with pleasant, even patina on reverse indicating all pieces have been together as a unit for the duration. Nice example of a difficult piece of insignia to find.

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...

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.

Nice brass Prussian belt buckle with leather tab. Tab is well worn but still strong. Buckle shows good detail and excellent condition. Polished somewhere along the way but still very nice.

Very nice early 1847 pattern Prussian Belt and buckle. This pattern was used through 1895. Attached sixth image shows the reverse with solder points. The buckle is quite attached to the leather so I decided not to remove it for photos. Rare to find with the proper leather belt. There is one scrunched edge on the leather as well as a small square from an old price sticker. Very nice, early belt.

Great looking shoulder board for German Lieutenant General. Very rich gold and silver Russial braid with red backing. One third from the top is a large single pip (About 23mm wide) indicating the rank above General Major. The pip shows gentle age wear and the red backing has one tiny moth nip about 1x2mm (See last image). This is very tiny and does almost nothing in detracting from this great looking shoulder board. If only it could talk. Nice item.

Absolutely stunning set. Fascist Italian Brocade officer belt with sword hangers in original box. I believe this rig is for Public Safety Police which is probably one of those innocuous names for a sketchy organization. The buckle itself is a lovely gold gilt example featuring an eagle beneath a crown gripping a fasces and with a nicely rendered enamel House of Savoy crest on his belly...

This is a very rare Skoshi Tiger patch recently purchased out of an advanced aviation patch collection. This group was charged with evaluating the F5 in live combat situations in 1965 and 1966. The original owner's labels are taped on the back and I will leave them there as they are somewhat helpful. Very cool patch not often coming to market.

This is a hard to find Japanese army cold weather or arctic cap. As most of their operations were in warm areas these are not too common. This one is also in superb condition and would be nearly impossible to improve on. The fabric is clean and unstained. Every button and every loop to attach to the respective buttons is present. No loose threads, stains or anything of the sort throughout. Probably the best detail is that even the fur is clean and in healthy shape...

Very high quality full dress tunic for Japanese naval captain. Lovely dark blue shell with bullion work around the color that is just out of this world. There is one small snag in the bullion but almost impossible to see with all the activity. None of the buttons look to be reattached nor does there seem to be any repairs. The inside is made of a high quality quilted fabric that is very clean and pleasantly pliable...

Great looking alpine "cappello" for WWII Italian officer. Nice looking hat with generally good form throughout. Very nice officer type black eagle. Leatherette band 15 stars of varioustones. The smaller are all the same size but vary from gold to silver to blackened. Really an interesting look. Below that is an even cooler green, white and red cord in a very intricate braid that must have taken forever to get just right...

Nice steel Wurttemberg belt buckle with leather tab. The tab is folded over a bit but not torn. Good been-there look throughout. No idea what the numbers on the back are. Hard to find belt buckle.

Nice, original WWII era German aiguillette. I believe with the red trim this should be for Red Cross (DRK). While I am sure of the age I am assuming on the Red Cross designation so would appreciate input.
