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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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...

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.

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...

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...
