Very nice named British Life Saving Medal. RLSS bar coincides with medal obverse that reads 'ROYAL LIFE SAVING SOCIETY ESTABLISHED 1891' and shows a sea rescue in process. The reverse reads 'AWARDED TO' and is engraved with the name 'M. S. COSSETT AUG 1926'. Around the edge of the obverse is Latin, probably the society slogan. The second bar is the date 1933, probably when the award was presented. Both bars are on the original ribbon which is usually long gone...

Very cool and extremely rare yearbook for the First Torpedo Boat Flotilla. The Wiemar navy at this time was very small and Germany was still heavily restricted in the size of its navy by the Versailles treaty. As many navies have figured out, it was quickly seen that with smaller torpedo boats it was possible to pack a lot of offensive punch into a small craft. This is a similar theory to the American PT boats...

What a cool item. This is a signed copy of the book Emden Ayesha by the famous captain of the Emden Kapitanleutnant Hellmuth Von Mucke. Interestingly enough, the book was printed in Berlin in 1917. No doubt the story of this famous naval personality was used as propaganda to encourage the German populace in their war effort. Von Mucke was famous for his impressive success in commerce raiding and quickly became a national hero. Obviously this book is written in German...

Very interesting stock certificate. Dated Sept 16, 1947 this certificate is for 100 shares of Tucker Corporation stock. Tucker, of course, produced what became known as the Tucker Torpedo. After producing something like 58 cars the company was wrapped up in a stock related scandal which finished off the corporation. I have read that it was actually a great car. This is one of those ill-fated stock certificates. Condition is excellent with nice, clean coloring...

Top notch signed photograph of Nicolae Ceaucescu from the collection of Hirsch Cohen. Hirsch Cohen is well known as having been a titan in the autograph collecting hobby. Ceausescu is a hard autograph to find as he was suddenly executed while in office after a military coup in 1989. Making this probably the best Ceausescu signature one could find is the fact that it includes the envelope from Romania and the letter addressed to Hirsch Cohen regarding the signature...

1932 dated signed postcard of Beniamino Gigli. Gigli was an Italian opera singer who many consider to be one of the very finest tenors in the recorded history of music. Good sized signature is on bottom part of the photograph. This is from the estate of Edward A. Schaeffer, a family friend who passed away a few years ago. Collecting autographs of public figures from all walks of life was, for him, an obsession/addiction that brought him much happiness while he was still with us...

I am pleased to offer Swords of Imperial Japan 1868-1945 Cyclopedia Edition by Jim Dawson. Even after owning this book for quite a while I am amazed at the detail with which Mr. Dawson attacks the subject in this 448 page monster...

From the estate of a friend who was an avid autograph collector. Short personal letter signed by Franz Halder who was in command of OKW until (I believe) 1942. LOetter is dated July 1970 and seems to be a reply to a request for signed photos and a return of one dollar which accompanied the request. Franz Halder passed away in 1972 in the Bavarian town from which this letter was sent; Aschau. Letter is folded in half (Below text and signature) with some chipping to top of document.
