Reasonable example of a getting-hard-to-find four pocket luftwaffe tunic. First the negatives: Has an area of mothing on the inside of each fly. Under wearer's left upper pocket there is a repair (Period repair-doesn't glow). Two of the gulls on left tab are missing one prong each. On the brighter side, it is a decent tunic that shows well as none of the damage is visible on the outside when on display. Left sleeve has rank chevrons. All stitching is period done and unmessed with. Good looking l...

Very nice single decal M40. There is always debate over whether a decal is naval gold or just an age toned infantry silver/white. In my opinion this one is certainly gold. The second image is taken outdoors with natural light. Inside shell is marked ET64, lot number is 1221 and liner size is 57. None of the liner tongues are torn or damaged. Chinstrap, marked RFNr 0/0494/0008, shows some cracking but still holding strong. Wear is nicely consistent throughout shell, liner and chinstrap with both ...

Double decal Luftwaffe helmet. Outside shows fair amount of good, honest wear. Wear is mostly on top where front line soldiers would sit on it in the field. While this is a well worn helmet there is something good to be said about decals that are so very obviously righteous. These are melted in just right, match wear spots that connect with them and have a real pleasing crackle pattern. Liner is complete but shows wear perfectly in line with the outside of the helmet. Chinstrap is gone but these...

Very nice tombac Air Gunner / Radio Operator badge. Nice example made by C.E. Juncker Berlin. Really a wonderful, top notch badge.

Hard to find NSKOV gorget. This is from a solid, old collection and absolutely guaranteed not to be one of the Eastern European things coming onto the market recently. Some age wear to the front as per photos. Rivets and face plate are in solidly in place. Full length chain in perfect shape. Backing is in great shape with two tiny nips as per final photo. These are more often then not really chewed up in back. Very nice, very honest piece.

Very nice WWI camouflage M16 helmet. Gentler camo pattern then found on most German helmets but a very nice and very undoubtable overall package. Some paint loss due to age and wear and a rub here and there but a great overall look. The liner is complete with pads except for damage to one of the six tongues tongues (Image 5) and small chips to two others. The manufacturer mark looks like TJ 66 for C. Thiel & Soehne, Luebeck. The last number is hard to make out because of the finish wear at that ...

This is just a neat item. Cigar Box by Otto Boenicke featuring Reichsmarschall Hermann Goering. The inside lid features a very flattering rendition of Goering and the trim of the box, both inside and out features alternating laurel leaves and field marshal batons. On the right side of the box is an interesting 20 rpf (Reichspfenig) tax stamp with a nice embossed eagle. Inside are a good number of cigars which I unfortunately can not add to internet sale as I can not be assured of the age of buye...

This item is related to one of the saddest chapters in our history and is offered with the thought that preservation and recognition are vital to remembering the past. "Those who ignore the past are doomed to repeat it". There are innumerable fake representations of such armbands but this is guaranteed authentic. Ghetto Gemeinde was the self governing council installed to regulate the day to day life inside of the nazi established ghettos of Poland. Real examples are very hard to find as those w...

Beautiful Frauenschft wall flag or podium banner for the National Socialist Women's League. At 115cm x 115cm it is a good size and wonderfully made. The gold lettering is intricately woven and all design work is separately sewn. No tears or damage save a few small stains the worst of which are shown in the last three photos; I guess it has to have some signs of age. This one is a real winner.

Very nice quality private purchase artillery officer visor cap by Pekuros. Typical of this maufacturer the fabric is a higher quality then normal and the difference can easily be felt. Eagle insignia is nicely rounded and "melted" in. Bullion wreath insignia is a gorgeous example. The red piping shows a good bit of wear and unevenness (See photos).On the inside between the green leather sweatband and the feldgrau shell is a thin strip of black velvet I believe to be a characteristic of this make...

Nice Luftwaffe DD. The eagle side, unfortunately, has a mostly rubbed out decal with a few parts and the general shape still visible. The tri-color side is a terrific looking decal with a cool crackle pattern to the crazing. The shell overall has a nice original finish with pleasant signs of age wear (Greatly exaggerated in my photos because I use a heavy flash for my photography). Maker and size marked SE64 for Sachsishe Emaillerwerke, Lauter. The chinstrap is awfully fresh so I think it was li...

Afrika Korps type tropical field cap. Sometimes termed M43 but actually M41. Condition is well worn with some damage as per images. Any markings are long gone. The tan/orange tropical insignia have been replaced with green. Perhaps the original had to replaced and the the fellow simply had no access to the original color. Any number of circumstances could have caused this and we have all seen strange things. Priced accordingly, though.

Very nice DAF unit flag. The town patch indicates it is from St Wendel Ost (Sankt Wendel). This town is just a bit north of Saarbrucken in the Saar region which is of course of great importance wo WWII history. Condition is overall excellent. There are a few small holes but this type of fabric almost encourages them with its loose weave. They are all tiny and really get lost in the size of the flag. The worst spot is the last photo. The silver twist wire fringe is in superb condition and all of ...

Really terrific lot belonging to an early panzer man, the sort of thing that doesn't come along very often. First a used postcard showing the same early model tank as is being used by the unit in question. Then there are 10 loose photos, all except for two having descriptions on the back in the same hand. With the exception of the very fine portrait photo, all are on Agfo-Lupex or Agfo-Brovira stock and all are full of men in the early panzer berets and black uniforms. Some show signs of having ...

Extremely nice aluminum SS belt buckle by RZM 822/38. This code translates to the firm C.T. Dicke. Very nice detail and a top notch example throughout.

Very nice officer's visor cap. Sometimes the piping colors drive me a bit nuts but I think this is Transport but possibly Sonderfuhrer. It is a soft, pale blue. At any rate it is an interesting variation. Condition is really top notch. I find one nip just over the eagle and one nip in the velvet band just over the right side slide knot. Then there is a stain on the inside liner. All three of these condition issues are visible in the photos. The negatives being said, this hat is in super shape. V...

Very nice early style NSKK motorcycle crash helmet. Eagle plate has cool yellow patina that only nickel seems to get. Nice piece of insignia. The helmet itself is complete. Leather is strong but could benefit from leather conditioner but there is no hurry on that and I prefer to let the long term owner do such treatment. One side ear cover does show some scuffing. Liner is size 58 and complete/undamaged. Front tongue is maker marked Hans Sch- . Nice, scarce helmet.

Here is a real rare one. These felt helmets were modeled after the typical WWI steel helmet with the same shape and basic angles. I have seen these in photos in use in Stahlhelm / Freikorps settings. The difference between Freikorps and veterans groups was often (And intentionally) very hazy. I have seen similar helmets (Or hats as the case may be) twice before but, as they are made of felt, condition was very poor. This one is in shockingly good condition as per photos. The damage I find consis...
