Silver denarius of Severus Pius issued about 180AD. Reverse shows victory seated on throne.
Nice set of tunic removed SA collar tabs. Rank is scharfuhrer. Very good look to them.
Very interesting set of 8 glass glass slides with period labels. There is some damage but most are still quite usable. The first attached image shows the grouping with the box in which I received them. The box metal reinforced corners to protect the slides, two of which are missing from the inside portion of the box. The second image is a slide showing U9 returning to port from an apparently successful voyage. Missing material from bottom left corner and a light crack above that. The next slide ...
1932 dated signed postcard of Beniamino Gigli. Gigli was an Italian opera singer who many consider to be one of the very finest tenors in the recorded history of music. Good sized signature is on bottom part of the photograph. This is from the estate of Edward A. Schaeffer, a family friend who passed away a few years ago. Collecting autographs of public figures from all walks of life was, for him, an obsession/addiction that brought him much happiness while he was still with us. Signed postcard ...
Very nice Russian belt and buckle. Buckle is clean and in good condition. The brocade is lovely and has a real nice toned patina. Two clips for sword or dagger hangers. Some parts of the reverse are age faded a bit more then others but still really a great looking rig.
Fascist militia antiaircraft sleeve shield. Nice piece but some damage to bottom corner. Priced accordingly but still a really nice item.
Good looking JFS Infantry Assault Badge. Lots of original finish remaining with no damage. Crisp JFS maker mark with characteristic ball hinge pin and hook assembly. Condition is excellent as per attached images.
Very interesting Japanese military sake bottle. The front shows a sword, helmet and flag resting on cherry blossoms in an oval depressed into the porcelain. Above this is a star. This is a nice enough motif but as the bottle is turned it becomes evident that subtly raised from the porcelain body is a whole series of further military themes; Cavalry, artillery in action, charging infantry, a rolling tank, horse pulling limbered artillery, infantry scaling a slope, a large falling bomb and an airp...
Great looking cloth Luftwaffe pilot badge. Nicely toned and no damage; A very solid example throughout. Such cloth badges were officially discontinued in 1942 but were popular with flight crew and remained in use for the duration of the war.
Beautiful example of a classic badge. This example has a simply lovely chocolate patina throughout with original pin on the reverse. This badge was given to those who attended this famous rally in 1933. The importance of this rally was soon recognized and this badge became an officially recognized medal which could be worn on uniform. A must for any serious Third Reich collection.
Very nice four place ribbon bar. Obviously the value on this piece is the fourth ribbon which is for the NSDAP long service medal. The other three ribbons are 1914 Iron Cross, WWII War Merit and the Hindenburg Cross for WWI veterans. It is fun to theorize on who would have a particular combination of medals. With the 1914 EKII this fellow was probably a solid WWI veteran who apparantly then was an earlier NSDAP member to have gotten the NSDAP long service. This type of guy was usually the early ...
Really neat small metal plate with Hitler and Mussolini. Above their busts is "VINCERE", and below is a nice looking eagle clutching a swaz and a fasces. There is a maker mark in lower left hand corner and a date that I can't read. I am not sure exactly what this plate was for but it certainly is interesting. Unfortunately, whoever pulled it off of whatever it was on was a butcher and the bottom fixture hole was ripped open and the plate has a bend in the middle. Measures 6x4 cm.
Soft leather holster for a Walther P38. In good, original condition except for the addition of the rawhide strap that has the look of a veteran add on. Markings on back are not pressed on very hard so difficult to make out. Code looks like DKB but last letter is super faint. Below that is a "44" and what looks like a light waffenamt. Honest example.
Another patch recently acquired from an advanced collection. 117th Avn Co Assault Helicopter Cobra Toros. Very cool Vietnam era patch.
Very attractive WWI Masonic medal. Numbered 1894 and named to Bro E.M. Price. Pin catch is maker marked R Gaunt London. The Gaunt firm is well known for quality manufacturing and this medal is no exception. Nice and thick and heavy, this is a solid and well made medal. As with most Masonic items it is covered with symbology that I will not try to decipher. The front has the dates 1914 and 1918 which obviously represent WWI. The pin catch is a little bent and I will leave it as is. Ribbon has som...
Nice pair of deluxe luftwaffe dagger hangers. There is a repair to one strap near the main clip. There is every indication that this repair is period and other then that this is a real nice set. The main clip is the Thor hammer style with RZM U.E. 19 maker mark. All three clips are also DRGM marked. Being a deluxe example, all the hardware is attractively covered with oak leaves. Besides the aforementioned repair, the straps are very nice with virtually no edge wear, unsnagged aluminum wire thre...
Very attractive medal. This Red Cross of Merit is in top condition with perfect enamel and strong colors. Excellent example.
