Nice example of a classic hat. Correct manufacture for WWII Japanese navy. There is one spot on the top where the reinforcing wire is poking through; I would recommend just snipping it. There is a label missing from the inside. There is a period repair to the seam in the top rear (See photos for the points). Besides these three negatives, which aren't too devastating, a nice, solid and clean hat.

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...

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 hard to find Political Eagle for athletic sport shirt. Condition is excellent with gentle signs of wear as per attached images. RZM tag remains on reverse. The whole patch is about 8x5 inches. The eagle is 17cm from black wingtip to black wingtip. Rare patch.

Excellent condition Horst Wessel collar tab. Machine embroidered with buckram backing. This Panzer Grenadier Division was named after an SA street fighter killed by communists and became a hero martyr for the anti-Communist movement. It was intended that the personnel for this division would be largely SA members but as it turned out it was mostly Hungarian volunteers.

Very cool G.A.R. kepi for the first New Hampshire regiment which fought at First Bull Run and other notable engagements. Very neat bullion patches and GAR buttons. Very solid structural condition. Damage consists of 2 nips to the fabric and a blister to the bottom of the visor all shown in the photos. Nips are hard to notice because of the dark color of the hat overall...

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.

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.

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. This piece would pro...

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. Modern frame job but a very attractive item to hang on the wall if you are ...

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.
