Classic revised edition 1981 hardcover reference book Japanese Swordsmiths by W. M. Hawley is a staple for collectors and not often found offered for sale at a reasonable price. This one has minor staining to the edge of page blocks as seen in attached images. The spine binding is loose by inside leafs have only minor tear. A used example in reasonable condition but pages are clean and bright throughout. Priced accordingly.

Very interesting and unique desktop Hitler Youth miniature flag and pole. Triangular HJ pennant measures about 9x9x7 inches. Attached are 5 little rings which attach to five slightly larger (But still tiny) rings on the pole. The pole is about5 23.5 inches high. The metal looks to be a nicely patinated tin. The base is bottom marked O.H. LAGERSTEDT A.-B. ESKILSTUNA. The pole was definitely made specifically as a miniature flag pole with an unmistakable finial and the two split posts towards the ...

Absolutely terrific colonial American corkscrew. Business end is very magnetic hand forged iron. In general design it is crude but it has some very attractive ridges and rings and a nice central bulge which is very nicely beveled. Certainly made by a blacksmith with some skill. The handle is hollowed bone with some groove work on the sides and to a lesser degree in the center. A minor degree of chipping on the edges but nothing disfiguring or even unexpected in a piece with this age. One side ha...

Nice Feuerschutzpolizei helmet with leather neck guard for fire fighting duties. Very nice decals to both sides. This is an attic find so it does show many years of age but still a self respecting helmet. Very light surface oxidation almost looks like foxing throughout. The double buckle chinstrap is fixed in place even though one end is shortened down to where it is fixed to the buckle. The size 54 liner is complete and undamaged with darkening across the brow probably from period use and wear....

Cool grouping from a member of the 90th Bomb heavy bomber group. This unit fought in Asia and was famously called the "Jolly Rogers" after their skull and crossed bones unit ID. The patch is blue with red stripe with one nip about 11 o'clock and some rub burn around the bottom edge (See photo). Also included is an excellent 11 place miniature medal bar and a unit history from one of the reunions. Very fun set.

Gorgeous Imperial German 1914 Iron Cross First Class. Jeweler quality with a nice convex vaulted shape. The center of the reverse is marked 900 silver and the patina throughout certainly backs this up. Lovely untouched cross with a great look would fit well into advanced collections.

Very nice Civil War cartridge box with both tins. All the straps and button are in fine shape. 1864 type with embossed US on the front. There is a hole on each side of the embossed US. Some units attached plates for the victory parades for uniformity so this is a period alteration. Leather is strongt throughout with only the obligatory surface crackling due to age in just a few spots. Nothing is near breaking or falling off. really a nice specimen priced right.

Very nice silver grade clasp for Transport and Glider squadrons. Fair amount of silver finish throughout. The back hook is a bit bent. The front is missing the eagle attachment but still looks good as below where that should be is an identical eagle. Has anyone ever figured out why they added an eagle attachment over an identical eagle? At any rate, a cool medal priced accordingly.

Extremely nice Iron Cross First Class. Pin is hallmarked 18 for the firm Karl Wurster KC, Markneukirchen. Great overall look with just the gentlest of oxidation along the beaded edge and in the corners right where you expect to see it. This is very light and, if anything, I would say adds to the overall appeal. If the back has ever been cleaned it was a very long time ago. I can find nothing negative to say on this fine looking EK1.

This piece I believe to be a hagi-yaki mizuzashi. The glaze color and incised decoration shows a strong Korean influence owed to the Korean pottery tradition brought to Japan during the early 17th century occupation of Korea by the forces of Toyotomi Hideyoshi. The big (?) handles and knop (?) top are design elements often seen on chirashi. This particular form, however, does appear to be a mizuzashi (Water vessel used in the Tea Ceremony). The speckled, coarse body looks like Hagi clay. After s...

935 Silver version of the 1935 Saar badge. This was in commemoration of the plebiscite which returned the Saar region to Germany in 1935. Normally a two pieced stamped tinnie type item, this one is solid and marked 935. A high end example no doubt intended for someone important in the hierarchy. I would go so far as to say a unique item.

Very cool antique Hessian regimental stein. Kanonier Hasele; 6th battery of the Hessian Field Artillery Regiment 61 of Babenhausen. Gorgeous field artillery scenes with vivid coloring throughout with raised details consistent with originals. Date of service was 1906-1908; Most soldiers serving in this time period were later called up for service in WWI. Lithophane on the bottom is a soldier shaking hands with his lady; There was a whole different series of lithophane images used on later reprodu...

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 much more subtle then it ...
