Nicely detailed luftwaffe banner painte on a light masonite type material. I have seen these before (Examples of various flags/standards) but not sure exactly what they were used for. One explanation I have heard is that they were used as seat markers at higher level meetings between service branches. In this case it would tell the representative from the Luftwaffe intelligence service where at the table he would be seated. The material is light so they are almost always a bit damaged...

Very nice set of WWI vintage Carl Zaeiss binoculars. I don't know much about how the dials work but the optics seem to be nice and clear. Lense plate is present and should be fed through the strap but I do not want to mess with the strap buttons. Case is really neat with the original label and wool padding.. Shoulder strap on case is broken. All in all, a nice, early set that is hard to find these days.

This is a very interesting item. Armband for the Japanese army press corps. The markings on the reverse indicate that this was related to the occupying force of the city the Japanese called "Ryujun". This Chinese city is known to us as Port Arthur and to the Chinese as Lushunkou. About 15x30cm. Very unique type item directly related to the occupying force of a historically significant city.

Great example of a walnut based P08 Luger magazine. Has the Erfurt Arsenal stamp but it a rare example of an unnumbered magazine. These are very desirable as they are sort of the O-type universal donor of Luger magazines. When one is missing a magazine for a numbered Luger this is the easy answer.

Nice 1st Class Iron Cross by 26. This indicates the maker B.H. Mayer. Does show a healthy patina from age and wear. I think it looks great as is but certainly could be cleaned up by someone who prefers. I like crosses in this condition that show the halo on the outer edge of the core along the silver beading. I don't believe this can be reproduced and is something I always like to see. Cross gently convex in shape. Nice, honest example.

Nice set of three Luftwaffe award documents. All are to Unteroffizier Walter Flanz of Flakregiment 24. The Eastern Front medal (AKA Frozen Flesh Medal) was awarded August 5, 1942. Iron Cross Second Class was awarded July 4, 1944. The Flak Badge was awarded July 10, 1942. All three documents were folded in half, otherwise they are very clean, crisp with reasonably sharp corners. Nice set.

French historical medal commemorating the storming of the Bastille in 1789. Medal by Jean-Bertrand Andrieu. There are some things the French are just better at then anyone else; Food, wine, fluffy dogs, storming spooky prisons and making big fancy medals. This impressive (If historically inaccurate) portrayal of the storming of the Bastille is really an impressive work of art. At about 79mm in diameter this is a large item and sure is an attention grabber...

Here is a great item for the guy who understands the importance of this unit. We recently bought a collection and this belonged to the owner. He was sent to Europe right after the war and the unit was interrogating Nazis and gauging political climate and ramifications in post war Europe. This collection was really full of unique and interesting items rarely encountered, but this plaque was actually from his unit in the 1107th ARASU. I know two things about this unit...

Excellent example of KABAR Marine fighting knife. Most of the bluing remains on the blade. Stapled scabbard is likewise in excellent condition with staples still present. The reverse of the scabbard has the veteran's name painted on: Roy L. James JR. The same name is lightly impressed on the front but only really visible if the light shines on it just right. Overall a really nice knife with a cool personalization which is conveniently placed on the reverse where it is not overly obvious.

After the first disastrous winter on the Eastern Front the Germans realized that had to quickly develop better cold weather gear. This style of fur lined cap was popular with German soldiers in Russia. This has field grey wool construction with mottled rabbit fur lining. The front, ear flaps and rear neck all can fold down and can be held in place with the string tie...

Very interesting flag. Large building sized flag but not obnoxiously large. Top portion is a square party flag about 56x56 inches. One half of this (Two sided flag so could be right or left) has the top of a long tapered tail attached. This tale stretches for about 105 inches. I would imagine there would be another mirror image pennant and the two bordered a large doorway or archway. Stamped on the disc is "Eigentum der Stadt Trier"...

I could not find much information on this medal. It is a 20 year Honour Cross from the SMVB organization attributed to Anhalt-Wurttemberg. It is a lovely medal with a quality tomback base with beautiful green enamel on all four arms of the cross. There is one blemish in the lower corner of the right arm that actually disappears depending on the angle to which it is held. This has the correct thin pin assembly I found on the only other two examples I have ever been able to find...

Very nice early quality tombac gold wound badge. Really amazing that some of these guys managed to get shot this many times before 1940 was finished. Very gentle wear on this one with a nice, solid finish. The first image is with a flash and shows any wear that may be there but tends to bleach out the color. The second image is without a flash and shows the color well but little detail. Really nice example.

Very nice 1915 dated M98/05 bayonet with sawback for combat engineer or pioneer troops. Maker marked Deutsche Maschinenfabrik A-G Duisburg on ricasso. Blade is nice and clean with minimal greying from age. As is typical with such combat and field used bayonets there is some light sharpening and four tiny nicks on the cutting edge. Spine a crown over 'W' over 15 representing manufacture during 1915 in the reign of Kaiser Wilhelm...

Two volume set of books from the 1936 German Olympics. One volume for the summer games and one for the winter games. Both in excellent condition with no missing pages. Very hard to find with intact dustcovers. These do have some minor tears but still in excellent overall shape.
