This is a terrific out-of-the-woodwork piece. Luftschutz NSDAP armband with three stickpins inserted. These have clearly been together and very possible all came from the same individual in 1945. The NSFK stickpin is a terrific numbered Forderer example by Gustav Brehmer. A Forderer was a donating member to the NSFK organization. RLB stickpin is by Hermann Aurich. the SA stickpin is backmarked RZM 24. Just a great personality type grouping.

This is the small 50 x 85 cm German Third Reich battle flag. This is the smallest size and very hard to find because they are a perfect size for display and thus tend to not move from person to person. This example is 9.5 out of 10 (easily). The only issue I find is a red stain on the center disk that does bleed through to the other side. This is not at all disfiguring and there are no holes, tears etc. Reinforcement stitching is perfect and everything is crisp throughout...

This is a hard to find odd piece of insignia; Black piped Haupstellenleiter collar tab. The black piping makes this either 2nd or 3rd pattern (1934-1936 and 1936-1938 respectively). In the fourth pattern, of which the vast majority of such insignia belongs, the black piping became the white piping that we are used to seeing on Kreis level insignia. Condition is top notch.

Interesting small document thanking Ms. Johanna Funk for donating metal to the scrap drive. It is in a contemporary black frame. Looks to have some minor water stains at two corners and also looks to be mounted on a stiff paper (Probably explains its preservation). Document itself is about 21x15 cm. Good graphics of the factory making heavy antiaircraft guns, no doubt using Ms. Funk's old frying pans.

Nice four place ribbon bar. War Merit w Swords, Eastern Front. Army Long Service and Tirol Service Medal. This last is not often found on Third Reich ribbon bars. Obviously a WWI veteran but has the Eastern Front ribbon so saw service in both wars. Interesting bar for sure.

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...

Nice set of seven document seals. These are embossed and attractive with nice looking eagles, anchors etc. These were used to seal documents map and other sensitive material and are evolved from the older European tradition of wax seals. I usually see thse priced between $10 and $20 so this lot is priced fairly. Attractive items.

Gorgeous Gustav Brehmer Luftwaffe Flak Badge. Wonderful, early nickel silver example with no damage ad a lovely patina throughout. Properly marked Brehmer Markneukirchen in the correct location with correct hook, hinge and pin assembly. The detail on these Brehmer flak badges is so fine it looks like the gun might start traversing at any moment. Great example of a cool badge by who I believe was the best flak badge maker.

AP press photo captioned 'Nazi Gun And Guner Knocked Out'. Interesting Russian front photo showing a knocked out German position and what looks like a short barrel Panzer III in the back. The front of the description page reads CAUTION! WATCH RELEASE DATE! About 8.5x6.5 inches.

Nice set of WWI tent stakes and pegs. Excellent condition for their age as per photos. The only real damage I find is a small hole in the bag at the side of one of the buckles (Image 7). The bag has some marking on the inside of the flap but very faded (Image 2). Looks like the original rope. I haven't pitched a tent since Boy Scouts so I have no idea what the difference between a peg and a stake is but there are three of one and two of the other. Nice original set of equipment.

Very attractive 1st Class Iron Cross. Excellent condition as per attached images. The catch is bent down a little bit and I don't really see a reason to bend it back up (If it isn't broke don't fix it). Very pleasant convex shape can be seen in images 5 and 6. Images 2 and 3 are with and without flash respectively. The box is also a wonderful example with an embossed (Not just painted) iron cross on the top center. The push button catch works well and the leatherette covering shows minimal wear...

This piece came out of an advanced Imperial collection and was identified as a German lancer stable belt. I honestly can find this in none of my reference books nor can I find any other examples online. The construction and stitching certainly is consistent with WWI and the name Zoller is certainly Germanic so I am confident in this identification. There is a a stamp in red ink running for a few lines but is illegible due to age fading (See attached image 6)...

Very nice Sudeten entry medal with Prague castle bar. Very nice medal with perfect, matching toning to the medal and the bar. Original pin properly sewn on and nice, melted in attachment prongs on reverse of bar. Ribbon is likewise perfectly toned and folded just right. Nice medal in just-like-it-should-be condition.

Two place 1914 Iron Cross medal bar with matching ribbon bar. The second medal is Hindenburg Cross. The Iron Cross is a real nice example with very pleasant toning and an overall look just the way we like them. The red stripe on the Hindenburg is a bit faded and there is also a bit of red staining. Perhaps the poor guy got shot in his dress uniform? Otherwise the ribbons are structurally in good shape with no fraying and a very nicely done wrap job...

8 year miniature SS long service medal. This one is in pretty rough shape but is at least a real example. Medal looks a little better then the photos but not much. Cornflower blue ribbon is rather washed out also. Rare medal makes the condition somewhat more palatable but still priced right.
