Terrific, untouched NSDAP Political Officer uniform including service tunic and riding style breeches. Blue piping on tunic indicates Ortsgruppe level and the four pips indicate rank of Gemeinschaftsleiter. Size below the back collar is 49. Inside interior pocket can be found the correct RZM label for "DIENSTROCK W fur Politische Leiter". The medals attached include 1935 Arbeit and 1936 Mai tinnies, black wound badge, enamel party pin and a numbered silver wound badge...

Very cool set out of the woodwork. Excellent NSDAP Political Officer belt buckle backmarked RZM M4/27 for the firm Overhoff and Cie. The leather on the belt is crisp and clean with a remnant of the paper label on the reverse. Just beside the tongue is penciled in the owner's name but not clearly enough for me to venture a guess. Tongue is size marked 90. Leather is also RZM marked towards the keeper end...

Terrific NSDAP standard bearer gorget. The front plate is undamaged and the patina looks to me as though it has never been cleaned. On the reverse the original green felt is complete and shows one TINY moth nip on the back (See images). The chain is a real treat as it is complete with the correct 31 links and the patina is even throughout indicating that this chain has most likely been together since the war...

Super cool Sanke WWI postcard features 12 different Blue Max award winners. These Sanke postcards are very sought after which makes sense because they all look great. The bottom left corner does have a small crease but this becomes understandable when we flip it over and see that is was mailed to a feldpost in July 1917 and was fully used. Earlier postcard includes Boelcke and Immelmann but does not yet show Richthofen in the top group. Postcard is really beyond cool.

Fabulous reference book covering just about every uniform from Fascist Italy during the war, starting with the 1926 Fascist March On Rome. Shocking number of color plates showing military, political, youth, female auxiliary and on and on. Catalog excerpts, detailed text, innumerable photographs and well over 100 color examples of uniforms in wear as well as page after page of various insignia, some of which are quite obscure...

This is a helmet that I really like. It has a very basic and very uncomplicated camouflage over-paint. It is uncomplicated and unfancy and nobody will ever give the pattern a name but since the helmet has no bullet holes maybe we can assume that it worked. On the wearer's left and below the vent hole we can see the ghost of a Luftwaffe eagle. This is very subtle and I assume caused by the different texture of the decal rather then the decal having been avoided by the owner when painting...

As collectors we know there are many Japanese military sake cups out there. And even trays for military sake sets. Far scarcer are military sake cup holders. This is the second I have had. Measuring about 9x8cm this holder is presented in the shape of an unfurled Japanese war flag with strong paint and only one short, light scratch in one of the red rays. The reverse has four kanji characters that are not clear enough to read. In the circle is the maker logo reading "Mikiyama"...

WWII Japanese Army steel helmet that is a real talker. Not at all a pristine example but an overall salty look that fairly screams front line combat. The base shows original olive drab coloring over which an irregular band of lighter, browner paint has been added to break up the color field. For a Japanese soldier to add a sort of camouflage paint scheme to his helmet one would consider the situation to be very front line...

Really a very, very cool Egyptian general's visor cap. There are one or two other examples online that are far fancier but without doubt far later. I have handled many WWII visor caps from various nations and this is very close in both materials used and method of construction. In my best educated opinion I would put this in the 1950's if not to the 1948 war with Israel. Elaborate front cap badge with Egyptian eagle is made of a pleasantly toned bullion is an exact match in style and material wi...

RAD athltic sport shirt with scarcer smaller patch. Very clean example in a large size. the size tag on reverse collar is unfortunately gone except for one remaining thread. There is also one very small hole about 2.5 inches below and to the right of the RAD patch. This particular short is featured on page 542, volume 2 of Robert Newbrough's excellent book set Sports and the Third Reich, History, Uniforms, Insignia and Awards. Also there is the added bonus that this shirt also is the large feat...

Very nice steel army belt buckle marked N$H 1941 for the firm Noelle & Hueck Ludenscheid. The buckle itself is a baeuty with nicely raised eagle, nearly perfect paint and of course the personality of being a maker marked and dated example. Very nice buckle.

Nice steel army belt buckle and tab from a maker not often found. I have always liked this maker logo as it is crisp and interesting. MSS 40 with the letters in a shield are the letters and 40 (For 1940 manufacture) to the right of that. MSS Stands for Math. Salcher & Sohne Jablunkau. The leather tab has an oval maker logo with this firm's name and the same date 1940 in the center. The leather is soft, healthy and undamaged with a nice rich brown color. Stitching is likewise in great shape. All ...

Absolutely gorgeous and quite rare white summer visor cap for Fascist Italian political officer. The front eagle and fasces badge is a thick bullion weave that is shockingly rich and deep. This is amazing work ad the burgundy backing indicates the wearer was attached to the Foreign Ministry. The white top has some very light soiling due to age but still in great shape. The bullion band is an added touch of class as most every example I have seen has had a black band. The visor is in great shape ...

Nice, solid steel beaded Luftschutz helmet. I use a heavy flash to make all negatives show clearly. the first attached image (No flash) is most accurate to appearance in ambient lighting. These heavier examples are generally associated with more front line use that the usual gladiator style. This one has all original finish and the decal is in absolutely great shape. There is significant wear and oxidation to the crown, right where front line fellows would flip them over to sit on. Other typical...

Superb 50 x 85 cm WWII German battle flag. This is the smallest size and perfect for display. Because these are the ultimate display size they tend to not often come available so it is nice to see such a solid example. Crisp, clean and no holes. The only condition issue is a pulled thread through the center disc which can be seen on the final image. Otherwise perfect example of a desirable flag.

Very nice aluminum DAF belt buckle marked M4/44 for the firm Paul Cramer & Co, L├╝denscheid. Front of the buckle shows most factory finish with only a few nicks to the edge. The belt is decently worn and the inner tongue stitching is mostly undone but at the list price the leather is basically free. Nice belt buckle.
