This is a rare medal with great history behind it. This commemorative war medal was instituted by Elector (Kurfürst) Wilhelm II on 14 March 1821 to recognize Hessian soldiers who took part in the second and final round of the Napoleonic Wars 1814-1815. Inscribed on the edge is "AUS EROBERTEM GESCHÜTZ" which translates to "From captured cannon", indicating that the metal used for this decoration was from a cannon captured at Waterloo...

Very nice private purchase Iron Cross First Class. Properly marked 107 on the fat part of the pin for Carl Wild. Still shows much of original silver wash with gentle aging. The black core could use a spot of oil but is otherwise undamaged. Overall a very nice example by a relatively uncommon maker.

Cool Japanese helmet with Rising Sun painted on front. Liner system is gone and some damage to top in the form of three round dents. Some civil defense force units did paint these on and this paint is certainly old. Supposed to have come from Okinawa; A point I have no reason to disbelieve. Great look.

Very nice cufftitle of EM or NCO style. This one is for Geschwader Lutzow. This unit did not actually exist but there are known period examples such as this one. Apparently there was a propaganda film made involving a fictitious unit with this name. I have seen one authority express the opinion that some of these were made by one of the period insignia firms but that it was used in conjunction with the film as a movie prop or something of the sort...

Nice looking HJ Winter Service Cap. Shell is in great shape. The liner is well used and looks it but generally in good shape. A bit worn out in the direct back (Next to last photo). Modeled after the military M43 this is designed so the fold up flaps can be pulled down and buckled under the chin in cold weather to cover the ears. Nice, honest example.

Very cool stickpin from the group Antifaschistische Aktion. This group existed in a very small window from 1932 to 1933. They were created as an armed militant wing of the German Communist Party specifically to combat the SA and other Nazi paramilitary groups. Oh, the good old street fighting days. This stickpin is from that brief one year window. German Communist material was generally disposed of as it was almost a certain concentration camp visit if one was found with it...

Nice four place medal bar. Configuration is for a WWI combat veteran from Oldenburg. The second medal is the Oldenburg state version of the Iron Cross 2nd Class with FA being Friedrich August. Nice example.

Superb single collar tab for the rank of Kreis Bereichsleiter. This is obviously a very high rank and a hard tab to find. Condition is perfect with no damage or excess wear. The white piping is clean and crisp, the brown velvet is soft and smooth and the buckram backing is undamaged except where the devices necessarily poke through. The posts for the eagle and the oak leaves are very nicely sunk in. Top notch example.

Two signed prints featuring Felix Von Luckner. One of the more inspirational figures of WWI, this enterprising captain was a famous commerce raider sailing a three masted ship with hidden engines and armament. He had a knack for being successful while minimizing casualties which made him universally popular. While he is famous as a raider he did also fight in some conventional engagements including the Battle of Jutland...

Interesting bright red sash with kanji that translates to "Naval Aircraft Technician". I believe this would be worn on the flight deck in a similar manner that we still have different color shirts for maintenance, fire control etc. This way the confusion of a bustling aircraft carrier flight deck is a little easier to figure out...

Very cool, large size obsolete military police badge. If that weren't cool enough it is a Marine Corps badge from Camp Lejeune. I would guess this was Vietnam vintage. Excellent condition as per photos. Preat piece.

Attractive DDAC pennant. DDAC, or "Der Deutsche Automobil-Club" was the Third Reich automobile club. This is an honest, untinkered with example. One slight rub on the spine and just a trace of fraying at the tip. Nicely stitch reinforced throughout border with an extra line at the tip. Red and black coloring is strong...

The RNST was the German agency that oversaw the governmentalization of the agricultural industry. The motto "Blut und Boden" translates to "Blood and soil" and was meant to imply that the blood of the "folk" was equivelant to the earth's soil and both were dependent on each other. Or some such nonsense meant to celebrate the connection of the "folk" to the nation's farming industry...

Very nice Reichskriegerbund member visor cap. The NS-RKB was the Third Reich manifestation of the veterans organizations originally formed for veterans of the 1870 war. The intent was to have a support and social group dedicated to helping veterans. A noble thought that most countries with combat veterans also employ. However, in post WWI Germany the veteran groups had real political clout and were often the pre-organized muscle behind various political movements...

As with anything Confederate, there are an awful lot of fake UCV medals out there.This one is the type you look at and immediately find absolutely no doubt. Great look and great condition except for the wear on the ribbon (See photos). The top bar indicates this was the 1936 reunion at Shreveport Louisiana and has a likeness of Robert E Lee on the left and Stonewall Jackson on the right. The bottom indicates UCV with two different Confederate flags with nearly perfect paint as well as a likeness...
