Fine ivory perfume bottle. Not as elaborate as some but an appealing example nonetheless. While it does have some age I would not only, consider it antique. Shipment to US only, minus California
Very nice ONB Fascist youth badge. This is a scarcer variety that I have not found elsewhere. Normally these have Mussolini on the front but this one has a smaller Duce with rifles on the side. Reverse is marked with a warning not to reproduce and an indication it is from the Milano district. Two good looking fasces are imprinted in the center disc just beside the pin assembly. A. XIV indicates this is fr the year 1936. In 1937 ONB was absorbed into the GIL. Very interesting badge.
Very nice Bundeswehr A-frame. This is a very good representation of the war time product. Straps match and are riveted in place the same but one is dated 1953 and the other 1963. I imagine some reenactors who don't want to spend close to $1000 and use a WWII example would like a real one instead of a reproduction made in some southeast third world country...
Very nice EKII by Klein and Quenzer. Nice original ribbon. Excellent condition as per images. Nice cross.
Very cool SS camo rank insignia. These camouflage rank insignia were meant to be worn on the sleeve of a variety of combat camo uniforms that would not normally show rank insignia. The Waffen SS made great strides in the development of camouflage combat techniques and this is a good example of this development. Nice item.
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...
Very interesting propaganda leaflets. This set of two leaflets are in rough condition and really look like they were knocking around in some soldier's pocket for a good while but have a really good look to them and are rare items. One side announces "The Red Army Marches In Germany!" and goes on to basically state that after five years of war it has come back home and what has already been decided is going to end. Every hour that Germany delays the end is another hour of devastation...
Very interesting stock certificate. Dated Sept 16, 1947 this certificate is for 100 shares of Tucker Corporation stock. Tucker, of course, produced what became known as the Tucker Torpedo. After producing something like 58 cars the company was wrapped up in a stock related scandal which finished off the corporation. I have read that it was actually a great car. This is one of those ill-fated stock certificates. Condition is excellent with nice, clean coloring...
Very nice matching set of German field flatware. All pieces are matching marked GK&F with eagle and swaz. The spoon fork and can opener are all dated 1942. The knife is dated 1941 but since I am sure they didn't make every piece on the same day I have no problem calling this a matched set. Condition is excellent and all 4 pieces fit together perfectly. Most sets seem to be mixed and matched like maybe even the soldiers at the time weren't concerned with keeping them straight...
Very nice Eskimo carved billiken. I believe this is walrus ivory. The label is a bit rumpled and difficult to photograph but it reads "Genuine Ivory, Eskimo Made" and the center shows a smiling Eskimo fellow. 6.5cm tall. Ships only to US minus California.
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...
Very nice panzer breast or tunic eagle. Shows pleasant signs of honest use. Great piece of insignia if you like the been there look. I sure do.
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.
Nice armband as worn by the SA Wehrmannschaft which was a militarydefense training organization offering pre and post military training to members 18 -65 who were unfit for regular military service. Very attractive armband with copper colored machine woven thread forming the well know SA sports badge on a white disk. Just a subtle touch of wear on the 10 o'clock position; Otherwise, a nice, clean example with a clean RZM tag on reverse.
An Oshigata Book of Modern Japanese Swordsmiths 1868-1945. This book was first published in 2001 by John Scott Slough in paperback. John is a family friend, and I know firsthand the effort and care he put into this project...
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.
This is a very interesting item. Appears to be a donation schedule for an NSFK forderer. A forderer was a sponsoring member. This was necessary as after the Versailles Treaty Germany was not allowed to have an air force. The NSFK was introduced as a glider society to keep young Germans interested in flight and to encourage the next generation of pilots. This society necessarily relied on donations. The outside of this document has spaces for all of the usual document type information. On the ins...
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.
