These are interesting items. The thought was that if 1000 different people said a prayer or had a kind thought for a soldier, and on that thought or prayer put a stitch in the belt, it would give the wearer a little extra ":something". Actually a nice idea and a good way for a wife or family member to feel like they were helping their loved one...

Very nice Krim shield. Prestigious combat award worn on upper sleeve for veterans of this campaign meeting certain criteria. Increasingly harder to find good examples.

This offering is a fine pair of menuki featuring a monkey riding a horse on one and the other looks to be a monkey chasing a horse, attempting to mount. There looks to be just a bit of smoothing in a tiny spot of one horse's leg. Other then that condition is terrific and detail is fine right down to the horses' abumi and even the braiding on the harnesses.

Very cool hate belt type of souvenir put together by a veteran after WWII. Some are full of garbage but this one has three neat pieces on it. Nice Luftwaffe belt but some trimming of the leather on the end. The buckle is a nice luftwaffe EM buckle. On the belt are two very nice silver British coins dated 1940 and earlier. Last is a Frauenschaft leader enamel pin/badge, the leader level having blue trim. The enamel on this badge is perfect. Really neat set.

Interesting table medal for Fascist commerce conference of 1938. front has a really attractively rendered, raised eagle with wing stretched out to encompass a fasces. In his claws is a bundled package which is a reference to the commerce nature of the medal. CONF. FASCISTA DEI COMMERCIANTI. Reversed is engraved: ACCADEMIA COMMERCIO 1909-1913 LUGLIO 1938-XVI. Of course XVI is a reference to the years since the Fascist march on Rome and acquisition of power...

Extremely interesting example of an Imperial German Bavarian belt buckle. Nice two piece brass frame with silver Prussian crown disc. Sides and reverse show a most interesting mechanism that I honestly can't exactly figure out; It looks like some sort of a friction type fit. Middle tab is marked DRGM 172088. Really a most unique buckle which would look good in even an advanced collection.

Absolutely gorgeous unissued Iron Cross Second Class. Core shows the lightest hints of mild oxidation against the bead line and a very gentle halo only if looked at in the right angle. Overall, the core is smooth and even; just a pleasure to look at. The silver frame is clean as a whistle with the lightest of toning. Ring is very crisply hallmarked 5. Original issue ribbon is mint. The envelope is very nice but does have two creases from folding...

Very attractive medal bar for 4 and 12 year long service medals. 4 year medal shows typical age wear. 12 year medal is much smoother with one spot that looks more like something dripped on it then corrosion. I have a rule against cleaning so don't want to mess with it; Gold finish is really nice on this one. I don't see a hallmark on the rings but I don't want to pull and twist them too much. Ribbon is presented in the classy Bavarian twist style.

Beautiful cased table medal of Count Franz Conrad von Hötzendorf dated 1914-1915. Wonderfully depicted bronze by the Austrian artist Arnold Hartig. The obverse shows Count Franz Conrad von Hötzendorf in profile with medals and uniform coat. Reverse shows Hötzendorf in medieval armor and long sword preparing to fend off an impressive dragon. This is probably reference to his defense of Austria and the Russian offensive of 1914...

Very cool, obsolete badge. COMUSFAC (Commander US Facility) SUBIC BAY, PROVOST MARSHAL. DEPARTMENT OF THE NAVY - UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. This badge has an extremely low number: 24. While this badge is very cool and very real and very obsolete it is also rare enough that I can find no comparable examples with which to date it. From looking at enough of this type of thing I would think the pin assembly looks to be WWII or earlier but I could be wrong on this. Really a superb badge.

Very nice named Purple Heart. I believe Ralph R Reeser was wounded in WWI but this is a later reissue of his medal, probably around WWII. Nice example.

Very nice bronze infantry assault badge by MK1. Nice rich bronze finish. Maker marked MK1 just under the ball hinge. Bronze badges, of course, were given to panzer grenadiers and motorized infantry thus tending to be with more elite units and were common in the Waffen SS as these units tended to be armor heavy.

Superb heer belt buckle with leather tab. Tab is marked H. AURICH DRESDEN 1942 and is in great condition with soft, healthy leather. As seen in the photos there are two linear scrapes on the front of the tab and a slightly discolored corner on the reverse; Looks like it got a small oil stain. Buckle has the stylized HA logo on the reverse just to the left of the swaz but it is very light and barely shows in my last photograph. But it is there...

Now here is an interesting item. Excellent two place ribbon bar for both the 15 and 25 year NSDAP long service awards/medals. These medals are very scarce and very valuable and now that I think about it I don't remember ever seeing the ribbon bar before. Both ribbons have the devices as well.

This sword stand was made by a good friend of mine who is half carpenter and half artist. This model is the San in okween. It holds three swords. 16 1/2''L x 14 1/4''H x 11''W. $235+S/H. While this sword stand is available he does take and even encourages custom requests. In addition to standard woods he likes to use exotic woods such as bubinga - an African hardwood, okween - another African hardwood, African mahogany, and rosewood (When available). Please inquire for custom requests.

Very interesting optician's ivory ruler. I don't know how this would be used but it all seems to be related to measuring eyes and related "stuff". Nice, even grain throughout. There is a crack right down the middle that follows right down one of the measurement lines. It looks like possibly etching the line along the ivory grain caused it to separate a bit and this was fixed by adding the small metal piece at the end with the 4 tiny rivets...

This is a great looking example. Has a great "been there" look but not too beat up at all. The front plate has a few stress lines and a ding at about 2 o'clock (See last photo). A nice, dark, even patina throughout. Reverse shows the hook and the puppy paws. There is a maker mark visible that looks like W H SMITH. Very cool belt buckle.

This is a plaque I have not seen before so I imagine it is relatively scarce. Central is the DAF cogwheel emblem above which are workers; Industriasl worker, doctor and delivery man maybe. Below is the slogan "Ehret die Arbeit und achtet den Arbeiter ADOLF HITLER" which basically translates to "Adolf Hitler honors the work and respects the employees"...
