Neat little patriotic flag or banner. About 18x27cm. Mounted on a crimped metal hanger. Great wall hanger as this is a portrait type showing lots of medals.
Nice mint set of matched visor cap insignia includes eagle, cockade and wreath. Just a slight bit of age oxidation to the side of the cockade, unavoidable with the material it is made of. Eagle and wreath are mint. One of those things that is very hard to find when needed.
Very nice WWII Purple Heart medal with extras as shows. The ribbon bar has a plastic cover. the good conduct medal and ribbon bar came with so will go with. The pin is from a private company the veteran must have worked for. Again, it was with the group so it stays with the group. Nice little set from a veteran estate in Wilmington Delaware.
Very cool Vietnam era Intruder patch. The intruder was a famous medium attack aircraft that was well designed enough that it did not exited service until 1997. Great looking original Vietnam era pacth from an advanced collection.
Early style panzer EM breast eagle with great tunic removed look. One chip out of eagle's right wing. A lot of original threading remaining. Nice eagle.
This document is an affidavit stating that this soldier served in the Continental Army during the revolution. Basically it states that John Pratt of Dublin, county of Cheshire in New Hampshire served in the last three years of the war. It is signed by what looks like Joseph Atherton. After the signature this fellow states that at the time of enlistment Pratt lived in another town but I can't quite make it out. Very cool document and it is always nice finding something related to the Revolutionar...
Unissued bayonet troddel or sword knot. The width of the yellow acorn cap is about 3.8cm. Clean and perfect. This color combination conforms to the 7th company. I believe the leather strap and slide indicate a grenadier guard regiment. Very nice tassel.
Well marked SA sportsbadge. Numbered 930462.
I am pleased to offer Swords of Imperial Japan 1868-1945 Cyclopedia Edition by Jim Dawson. Even after owning this book for quite a while I am amazed at the detail with which Mr. Dawson attacks the subject in this 448 page monster. Virtually every page is profusely illustrated with over the top photography relating to the highly detailed text. This book is a must for both the beginning and advanced collector. In the photos of this listing I have included the table of contents which is the best wa...
Terrific knot here. Could be for a sword but I suspect it is for a fire police bayonet but probably for a higher individual. These straps are normally silver and red wire woven into leather but this one is gold colored wire woven onto lightly striped black fabric. Silver acorn is nicely age toned with the tip showing alternating red, grey and silver twisted wire threads. Super quality example of a very scarce pattern.
Very cool GAR medal. Dated April 15th 1903 and for the First New York Regiment. Some missing fabric to ribbon but gold finish to the medal is near perfect. Hard to find unit specific GAR medals let alone to a cool unit like the 1st New York.
This is a reproduction Waffen SS overseas cap meant for display, educational or even reenactment use. It is nothing that would fool a knowledgeable collector but not everyone can afford the real thing for display purposes. Cloth shell looks believable with SS bevo skull, a relatively inaccurate SS style eagle and white infantry piping. The inside has a large and elaborate stamp saying something about SS service caps and NSDAP contract information. Also inside are size and year markings: 58 and 1...
Fascinating set of three propaganda leaflets directed at Russian troops. I can't translate these but they obviously seem to be discussing the wonderful treatment that surrendering Russian soldiers could expect in Germany. The first class amenities look like they would include recreational time, quality healthcare and a comfortable bed in a pleasant room. Maybe a bit far from the truth; Perhaps not all propaganda is true then.
Nice Camillus fighting knife. Very nice condition as per photos. Blade marked US Camillus. The scabbard has a pressed in rendition of "SUE" who is clearly not the artist's mother. Nice knife throughout with a little bit of character.
Very nice and quite scarce insignia. White eagle on blue background for use on Postal Service sport shirts. Measures about 6 inches across the top.
Nice set of 2nd model Luftwaffe dagger hangers. This is the deluxe type with oak leaves on all metal parts. The clip on the belt end is the Thor's hammer variety. All three clips work fine with nice gently resistant spring action. There is consistent signs of aging throughout the straps and the metal fittings (See photos). All three clips are DRGM marked and the Thor's hammer clip is also marked RZM U.E. 10. Very nice, high quality set of hangers with the been-there look.
This is a lovely little set. A pitcher for iced tea, lemonade or whatever and two matching cups with 5th army crests on each piece. The pitcher is about 9.5 inches tall and the cups are about 4.5 inches tall. A local fellow had enlisted and ended up fighting in Italy. The souvenirs he brought home were this pitcher set and his lovely Italian wife. He passed away a year or so ago and she decided she was also getting old and it was time to part with old memories after many decades of happiness. Si...
Lovely Imperial German WWI patriotic pin. This piece features a 1914 Iron Cross with the slogan GOTT MIT UNS on the three upper arms and a portrait of Kaiser Hindenburg in the center. The beaded suspension loop is finished off with a miniature 1914 Iron Cross ribbon. The reverse is DRGM marked. The cross is about 2.4cm wide and high and the ribbon is about 1.5cm wide. Very cool patriotic piece with a lot of personality.
