Very nice unit engraved Mecklenberg horse artillery sword. 60th Field Artillery Regiment. The WKC maker logo is under the langet but hard to photograph. Some light spotting to the blade but nothing significant and will improve with the application of a little oil. Some gold leaf remains to the engraved paneling. Blade is very firm on the grip with no loose fitting "wobble". The handle shows age wear similar to the blade. The only minus on the handle assembly is one loose wire on the top row...

Very attractive Japanese officer dress sword with blade presentation. I can't make it all out but I believe to an officer of the 35 Infantry. I have seen such a presentation before attributed to a military school. The Mon (Or family crest) is the Mandarin Orange. One branch of the Matsudaira family used a similar crest and the Ii family used a few variations...

Very nice dress axe. Condition is superlative with only very minor signs of age wear on the handle which is impressive as it is a soft wood painted black. One small spot of oxidation on the bottom of the axe head, otherwise all metal fittings are equally nice. This could be Imperial right through Third Reich as dress axes are hard to date. These are neat items and not easy to find priced reasonably.

Very interesting dagger for East German Air Force general. Unissued and in original case. Comes with appropriate hangers and belt loop. East and West Germany were the respective countries used as front line proxy forces between the United States and Soviet Union during the Cold War. Really a neat piece from an important time in history.

Militar Verwaltung Belgien Und N Frankreich. Very scarce civilian military official or administration badge. Worn by non-uniform military officials in some Western Europe occupied territories. This one is for Belgium and Northern France. The photos I have seen of this badge in use are all on women. I imagine that this was a popular item to get rid of when the Germans left an area which may explain its scarcity. This is numbered 4115...

Nice signals officer visor cap with lemon yellow piping. Interior is marked Deutsche Wertarbeit with the maker logo showing an officer wearing visor cap in profile. There are a couple of minor nips and a bit of roughness to the finish of the front visor but all in all a good looking cap priced accordingly.

Very scarce item. Dutch NSKK volunteer Badge of Honor. These were only awarded in two separate ceremonies. Among recipients were something like 40 Dutch NSKK drivers attached to 6th Army that were pulled out of Stalingrad pocket. A few have recently turned up near Berlin but as they are dug they are in relic condition and mostly broken. Word on top of badge "TROUW" translates to loyalty or honor...

Historically important binoculars from LZ127 which was the airship Graf Zeppelin. Power marking is 8x25 and the L.Z.127 markings are an exact match to the power markings. Absolutely real, authentic memento from the most famous airship ever to not explode in New Jersey. Shows significant wear as per images and most of the leather covering is gone to time. The optics look clear enough but the focus dial on one side does not turn. I am not a big binocular guy so I don't know why...

Miniature second model Luftwaffe Dagger by SMF. Lightly sharpened which is common on these as owners really did like to use them as letter openers. Crisply marked SMF Solingen with logo and marked DRGM. Scabbard shows its age but undamaged. Nice hard to find and scarce mini dagger.

I know this item is not cheap but I had to pay a lot to get it and would like to share with my regulars. This bronze armored assault badge, maker marked by Wiedmann, has every bit of the bronze finish applied when it was first manufactured. I usually don't like to estimate finish percentages but 100% is an easy one to guesstimate. The bubbling up from below is always a good sign as this process takes time but this example is sort of freakish...

This is not a minty piece but is just how I like it. Early blade marged M3 Camillus combat knife dated 1943. The handle is cracked along each rib as these tend to do. It looks fine but wiggles with finger pushing. The blade shows solid wear and old sharpening. M6 paratrooper scabbard is also dated 1943 and shows wear similar to the knife. Nothing is broken on the scabbard but it definitely has its share of scuffs. I also really like this bootlace thing going on at the end. Honest been there para...

Monogrammed German officer sword by Carl Eickhorn. Blade is mint. One small one inch crack on inside of bakelite grip (Not very noticable). Very nice hand tooled eagle and acorn rows on each side of crossguard. Monogrammed "HP". The veteran I bought it from said he purchase this in the late 1940's from a German veteran he befriended named Helmut Pfortner. A nice dovetail Eickhorn sword with a beautiful blade.

Very nice DRK enlisted visor cap. Terrific example with no significant damage. The black chinstrap does show honest period wear to the black surface but nothing even remotely coming close to a break or a tear. The celluloid diamond on the inside is cracked and in one corner of the visor there are four stitches out. Both of these issues are shown in the photos and the visor lays on the hat frame just fine. There are many positive. I find no evidence of any mothing anywhere. Whole frame is nice an...

Very cool grouping including a USMC Mameluke engraved to Charles Lee Morrow and three wall plaques for excellent service in Vietnam. Interestingly, although the plaques show some wear (See photos) they are each from a different Marine Corps division, the 1st, 3rd and 7th. The rank given on two of the plaques is Captain and each is engraved again with his name. The 1st Division plaque specifies service in Vietnam 1968-1969. The plaque from the 7th Division is the most interesting and reads "PRESE...

Superb First Class Iron Cross. This is a 900 marked three piece award. Probably the best I've ever had. Some very light wear to the front but nothing that one wouldn't expect on a real piece. Stabilizing spike is on the upper reverse. No damage found. please see images for condition; It is nice.

Nice SA dagger marked RZM M7/13 for Arthur Shuttlehofer. Late production shows significant age wear to the plating, especially the crossguards. Handle is in nice shape with handling marks mostly on the reverse. The blade is very nice and unsharpened but does show some minor dark freckling. The scabbard is terrific with near perfect original paint and fittings with much less plating issues then the handle shows. Everything is nice and tight throughout and all the pieces fit properly as theuy shou...
