Two place 1914 Iron Cross medal bar with matching ribbon bar. The second medal is Hindenburg Cross. The Iron Cross is a real nice example with very pleasant toning and an overall look just the way we like them. The red stripe on the Hindenburg is a bit faded and there is also a bit of red staining. Perhaps the poor guy got shot in his dress uniform? Otherwise the ribbons are structurally in good shape with no fraying and a very nicely done wrap job...

Half SS dog tag with a great look to it. SS man number 21006. Blood type O. SS-NACHR ERS RGT. Nachrichten refers to signals. ERS indicates he was from a replacement battalion but it is my understanding that SS men kept their original dog tags throughout their service. Therefore there is a disproportionate of "replacement" tags but that does not mean these guys were not combat soldiers...

Hitler plaque measuring just a little over 7cm by a little over 5.5cm. Small size but nicely detailed and quite solid for such a small package. The back has a leatherette stand in place. I have had this same type of plaque before and I believe there is also a ring underneath of the backing for wall use.

This is a great looking WWI German patriotic pin or brooch. The center is a transparent dome with an Imperial navy flag. Around that is a laurel wreath with bow. Around that layer is an attractive blue enamel field with gold colored border. Very nice piece; One would think maybe for the wife of a sailor. A little over 4cm wide.

Very cool patch from an advanced flight patch collection. This is the first patch of this squadron which was named the Royal Maces. Great looking patch.

Very cool Infantry Assault Badge document to a man in the 315 Infantry Regiment. Awarded "In the field" November 13 1941, very early in the Russian campaign and the beginning of that famously miserable first winter. In fact, things were already so tough that the "I" key on the typewriter was broken. "Im Felde..." has become "Jm Felde" and the unit is given as "...Jnf.Rgt.315". Interesting bit of personality. Nice clean document with nice stamp also from the 315th.

Visually stunning bronze table medal depicting Victory, wielding a sword and with hair flowing behind, riding a tank over barbed wire and trenches. Beautiful, solid piece measuring just under 7cm in diameter. Signed A. Morlon. Edge is stamped "BRONZE" and with a tiny cornucopia which I believe represents the Paris mint. Reverse depicts a shield over extensive laurel leaves. One side represents attack and the other defense. Really very powerful imagery.

Very interesting short length of tarred rope recovered from the wreck of the Invincible, the first of seven Invincibles which was sunk in 1758. This piece came with a signed certificate of authenticity from the Invincible Conservation group. I would not have but the previous owner trimmed the COA to fit in the mount but it is done and it fits well so I will include the mount with the rope and certificate. Riker mount is about 21x16x5 cm. Neat item from a famous ship.

I have always loved these patches. Waffen SS pattern sleeve edelweiss for mountain troops. Needless to say German mountain troops have always had a well deserved reputation for being a very tough elite branch. Reverse shows some paper remains from having been in a photo album; Not a problem at all. Otherwise top-notch condition with clean fabric, perfect stitching and correct slightly floppy feel. Terrific piece of SS insignia.

Top notch sword knot. Strap is a brocade type aluminum weave. Stem is an alternating 3 dark silver wires and 1 bright silver wire pattern. Acorn is is perfect condition with a dark toned tip. Condition is flawless. If you look hard on the top of the strap you can see lighter stripes where it was covered up by other parts of the strap when it was wrapped on a sword handle for a long time. This is hard to see when holding it and impossible to photograph; Just an interesting note...

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.

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 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.

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...
