Very nice cap talley for the K-Klasse cruiser Karlsruhe. Kriegsmarine crew members of ships were authorized to wear such tallies on their Donald Duck hats to identify the ship they were assigned to. In 1938 these were withdrawn in anticipation of mobilization and all members were then to wear the generic "Kriegsmarine" talley except for some naval schools. Condition on this talley is superb with perfect machine woven gilt thread with no snags or "washing out"...

This might be the greatest country on earth but that does not mean we don't periodically do stupid things. For example, Prohibition which made recreational alcohol consumption illegal thus opening the door for the antics of guys like Al Capone. It rarely works out when one tries to impose their morality on others. Prohibition began in 1920. This medal is for a delegate to the Atlantic City NJ Prohibition National Convention of 1912 when this movement was gathering steam...

Terrific set of hard to find Italian special forces camouflage. Camo pattern is San Marco Marine Mediterranean. Trousers are at least size 40. Liner in jacket marked L. Jacket liner buttons in when necessary and from the feel of it must make it quite warm. Dated 1996 but I believe still current. Patches on sleeve and pocket are sterile. Embroidered star to each collar. Great set and hard to find.

Very cool item. This is from the estate of Joe DiMaggio and has letter of provenance from the auction signed by Paula DiMaggio Hamra, Joltin' Joe's granddaughter. This auction was well known and much information can easily be found online. Obviously most of the material there-in was TO Joe and not FROM Joe, so is unsigned. This document is an honorary citizenship to the City of Baltimore and signed by Mayor Willaim Donald Schaefer...

Two very nice private, unpublished photos of Luftwaffe General Kurt Student. These must have been taken just after the 1940 western campaigns as he has been awarded the Knights Cross but not yet promoted past Generalmajor. Student was a WWI fighter pilot and by WWII had become the father of the German paratroop forces...

Very nice gold Mothers Cross in case. Excellent cross and probably about full length ribbon. Case is very clean with very minor shelf wear. Light fabric damage at the hinge (The usual spot) but not bad at all. Leatherette cover is really in very nice condition and hinges and snap click work fine. Maker marked ZIEMER & SOHNE OBERSTEIN. Nice medal.

Very nice dress bayonet by Eickhorn. This wood grip variation is fairly scarce and were meant to simulate stag horn grips. Overall it is an interesting look. The grips are in great shape and the only condition issue I find is some very minor freckling on an otherwise beautiful, mirror bright blade. This freckling is subtle enough it was difficult to even capture in photograph but after trying repeatedly I did get some images where it shows...

The Spanish Blue Division represented the Spanish military contribution to the German effort in WWII. For Franco's part it was a way to get the hotheads out of town. For the soldier's part, the Blue Division represented a solid group of anticommunist believers. As a result, the Blue Division is widely accepted to have fought like tigers and was certainly one of the more effective volunteer "legions" in the German war effort and are generally accepted as being an elite unit...

Very hard to find tunic removed flak officer's badge or patch. This is very similar to the EM flak patch but with high quality, raised embroidered 88mm gun, swaz, wings and oak leaves. The embroidery is bullion quality but without the interwoven aluminum wire. This is really a great looking and seldom encountered patch. Except for the embroidery and a few other stitches the backing is loose from the wool fronting...

Nice pair of black widow Luger grips. Unfortunately someone along the way found the need to carve a "W" on one side. The other side has one small hit (See next to last photo). This is a shame because otherwise these grips are in great shape with no cracking or warping and nice, unworn checking. I hope "W" feels bad for what he did.

Very cool steel army buckle with leather tab. This one has a lot of the field grey paint remaining but enough worn to give it a great combat look. What is also cool is that the buckle and tab are perfect matches with the buckle being marked N&H 1942 and the tab marked NOELLE & HUECK LUDENSCHEID 1942. The leather is in great shape as well as per photos.

Very nice example of a hard to find cap tally. III. TORPEDO BOOTS = DIV.III. Solid condition as per photos. There is a small piece of scotch tape at each end from previous owner. Probably removable but I don't pick at things. Nice example.

Nice quality leather holster for the German grenade launcher. Generally in good condition with original sling and internal leather dividers. The leather tongues at the top sides are a little floppy but are still there and undamaged. Certainly a nice example.

These riding breeches are not minty by any means but they are extremely interesting and really tell a story if one takes the time to look at them. They are really well made with nice, baggy thighs that taper nicely to the calves to be tucked into boots. Each calf area has 4 buttons and a string tie. The waist has a built in fabric belt system...

Nice, original medal bar as worn on parade uniform. WWI Iron cross hallmarked "W", Hindenberg cross maker marked 0.2 and 25 year faithful service NSDAP having about 40% original silver wash intact. A nice grouping with some character.

Excellent example of a cool medal that has become scarce and hard to find. This famous medal was awarded to introduced early in 1942 to commemorate the successes of Rommel's Afrika Korps. This is early when the numbers involved were few. After the Italian capitulation wear of the medal was forbidden which further adds to its scarcity. This one is the early bronze die struck version and features two knights (Presumably one German and one Italian) jamming a sword down the throat of a crocodile (Su...

This offering is a cased medal for 40 years NSDAP faithful service. The medal is mint. The box is near mint with only the gentlest of aging and is maker marked "Deschler & Sohn Munchen". Hard to upgrade this one.
