Nice early pattern eagle for SS visor hat. Structurally in great condition. There is some wear to the silver finish which shows the base metal beneath (See photos). The blackening around the swaz is excellent. Back marked RZM M1/8. Nice, respectable example.

Beautifully made stickpin with three miniature Imperial German medals. Two pins suspending a gold chain with properly fit loops for the medals. The third medal is the Friedrich August Medaille in silver which was a Soxon medal awarded to NCO's in acknowledgement of notable service. The other two medals are the Hindenburg Cross for WWI veterans and the 1914 Iron Cross which, again, was awarded for outstanding service. A very nicely made stickpin that reflects both the quality put into such pieces...

Lovely blue and red enamel medal for Honorable Member of the 13 Husaren (Hussars) Regiment. Very well made badge measuring 4.5cm high. I find no damage to the enamel or the rest of the piece. Backmarked A. SCHWERDT STUTTGART. Very cool badge would look great in just about any display.

This is an extremely interesting badge from the February 25 1934 swearing of the oath of allegiance to Adolf Hitler. It was a day of infamy when the Wehrmacht took such an oath and paved the way for the crimes that were to follow and be condoned and even aided by the German army. The event for which this badge was issued was a similar event in which around a million party members made a similar oath. Perhaps it seemed like a good idea at the time. Different badges were made for this event in dif...

Very nice early quality war merit cross first class without swords. Nice example without swords. This is a far scarcer award then with swords. Back marked 1 for Deschler. High quality medal all around.

Nice political collar tab for the rank of Kreis Hauptgemeinschaftsleiter. The tab looks great from the front showing gentle age wear. The lightly toned white piping and the gold striping are nicely applied. The brown velvet is is soft and smooth. The reverse shows a very well made collar tab with all proper material and construction. The only problem I find is that the posts for the eagle's left week and the swaz are broken off. This is only noticeable due to the hole in the buckram backing that...

Very cool grouping I have enjoyed for a long time. The first piece is a V1 rocket (Or V1 Flying Bomb) tinnie. I believe it is a homemade piece but it is well done, metal and includes etched lines for contours and markings seen on the real thing. The pin on the back is soldered on and is loose but would be an easy fix if need be. I would think this was probably made during the war by some HJ kid. The booklet is the hard to find The Story of Antwerp X. It details the joint British, Polish and Amer...

Nice SA sport shirt patch. White on green with the group designated as KP. These are fun to collect as they come in various colors and group designations. This one has nice, strong color. There is a stain at about the 10 o'clock position. On the reverse is an RZM tag which is always a nice bonus. The letter "P" in the lower left corner indicates that this patch requires a fairly high level of detail (This scales is an A to Z scale). This is a good time to buy into athletic material as a fine boo...

Very nice example of the Japanese Red Cross of Merit. This is a truly beautiful medal with very detailed enamel work with no damage. The medal and the ribbon with roset are perfectly placed on a backing of black felt on the frame with which they were presented. The whole framed set comes in the original presentation box. The edge of the frame has just a couple of tiny ticks that really have to be searched for to locate. These are hard to find and would also be very easy to touch up. The box has ...

Hitler Youth document from March of 1943. This certificate basically amounts to a certified pledge of allegiance. Just like the army's pledge, the problem here is that the youth is not pledging allegiance to his/her country but to the person of Adolf Hitler. Obviously this caused all kinds of trouble when The Fuhrer turned out to be more then a little bit problematic. In my opinion this is an important document, the significance of which goes well beyond the normal HJ documents for minor awards ...

Lovely hand tooled leather belt and holster sized for a big guy. Both pieces match and display very detailed two tone work. The holster is professional quality with lower ties and top loop for firearm and has smooth lines throughout. Belt has loops for 28 rounds. Belt is marked as being made in Mexico with the numbers 44 45 and 48. I assume that this means it is optimally sized for a 45 but can fit from 44 to 48 and my measurements seem to agree with that. Really a lovely set that is basically n...

Very interesting badge. The Hungarian Combat Leadership badge was awarded to officer's who led a unit of up to regiment strength in live combat. This is an award that carried a solid level of prestige. This badge was active from 1922 to 1944 so obviously most were awarded for WWII service. I am not sure if this would have been awarded for previous WWI service but certainly a good decoration either way. Good looking award with attractive enamel work.

Classic unit history: History of the 508th Parachute Infantry. First edition printed in 1948. This unit, the Red Devils, were part of the 82nd Airborne Division and famously served in D-Day and the subsequent Normandy campaign, all through the European campaign ad into occupation. This book follows them from training to the end and includes an Honor Roll in the back as well as a day by day history of the regiment. I believe this was owned by a member of the unit as there are small notations here...
