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.

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...

Nice, original WWII era German aiguillette. I believe with the red trim this should be for Red Cross (DRK). While I am sure of the age I am assuming on the Red Cross designation so would appreciate input.

30 Pfennig coin with Hitler bust. Over the years I have seen a handful of these turn up. While they are scarce there are too many to call a "prototype" so I imagine it was a trial run of some sort. At any rate, an interesting and hard to find item.

Very rare and almost impossible to find German propaganda leaflet dropped on American soldiers during WWII. This is the sixth of a series of six leaflets known as the Georgia Series. Condition is a bit rough with some damage to the upper right but when one considers that this is a small leaflet, not much thicker then tissue paper, supposed to be dropped out of an airplane by an air force without air superiority and then carried around by GIs in a war zone it is surprising there is even a one lef...

Very nice set of Russian navy dagger hangers. I do believe these are WWII. If they are later it is not by much and I have these priced low regardless. Condition is terrific with gold wash on all metal fittings showing the most minimal of aging. Fittings are the same on both except for the swivel hook correctly present on the smaller strap. The buckles, modeled very closely on their German counterparts have anchors instead of lions (Who ever saw a lion swimming anyway?). The fabdric straps are a ...

Attractive American M1912 officer's cap. Nice clean cap with with good shape and a nice, period used look. Beside the wearer's left ear is a stretch of about 3 inches where the stitching is missing along the sweatband. This is not noticeable unless pulled at because the cap keeps its shape very crisply (Image 7). The maker logo in the silk lining is blurred and not readable (Image 4). Also, from left to right along the lining and just under the logo is some separation from solid use (Image 5). U...

Very nice Deutscher Turnerbund belt buckle. This organization was the German Athletic Association and had many sports under its jurisdiction. The belt buckle design is 4 "f"s at right angles. These stand for the the organization motto Frisch, Froh, Fromm and Frei whic translates to Fresh, Happy, Pious and Free. This buckle is a high quality brass example. Two solder points hold the silvered device in place. the device is a fancier example then usual with ribbed "F"s. very nice overall look and g...
