Unnumbered gold SA sports badge. This example is by Redo. This is the third pattern that went from 1939 to the end of the war. This is a very nice example and the gold finish is in excellent shape with very minimal wear mostly to raised surfaces. A very nice medal.
Nice little blouse for a girl in the GIL which was the Italian fascist youth group similar to Germany's HJ and BDM. Nice clean example as per photos.
Nice early pattern eagle for SS visor hat. Structurally in great condition. There is some wear to the silver finish which shows the base metal beneath (See photos). The blackening around the swaz is excellent. Back marked RZM M1/8. Nice, respectable example.
IJA tropical tunic. While this is not a terribly rare item this example is very nioce on grounds of condition being just about mint. I find no damage or even wear anywhere on this. The armpits are open for air circulation. The tag is under the loop on the back of the neck. Markings included inspection information, identify this as Type 98, size 3. The date is Showa 18 or 1943. Perfect example.
Rather toasty pairing of Red Cross leader dagger blade and scabbard. These are not pretty but sure are cheap. Please see photos.
This is really a beautiful hunting knife. This is an older model which varies slightly from newer offerings but most noticeably in the grip. This one has a nice, slightly opaque jade with a very subtle ripple pattern that I hope photographed OK. From tip to bottom a little over a foot long. This was never used and in superb condition but, since it is not brand new the blade does areas where the surface color looks a little different then the other areas...
Nice early quality silver plated 1st Class War Merit Cross. Maker marked L15 for Otto Schickle. Overall excellent condition and priced fairly.
Very nice early quality war merit cross first class without swords. Nice example without swords. This is a far scarcer award then with swords. Back marked 1 for Deschler. High quality medal all around.
Nice political collar tab for the rank of Kreis Hauptgemeinschaftsleiter. The tab looks great from the front showing gentle age wear. The lightly toned white piping and the gold striping are nicely applied. The brown velvet is is soft and smooth. The reverse shows a very well made collar tab with all proper material and construction. The only problem I find is that the posts for the eagle's left week and the swaz are broken off...
Yes, it is an odd item, but very important to uniform collectors. This pink pair came from an unissued lot so condition is perfect with like-new elasticity. Label bears the generic term "Wehrmacht Helferinnenkorps" so my assumption is that this pair would be appropriate to any lady's uniform from any branch, such as nurse, labor corps, military etc. Tag also designates the supplier/distributor as "RTB", the article as a slip and the date February 1945...
Beautiful example of the Hamburg Field Honor Cross. Very solid finish remaining to the gold swords and wreath. The enamel is complete with only a tiny hairline to the upper arm. This is a very attractive medal and was popular with veterans because it did not require being in any particular veteran group (Which often translated to armed private armies). This medal can often be seen in early SA and SS photographs but was banned in November 1935. Lovely example of an attractive medal.
