Excellent EM or NCO M36 panzer breast eagle on black factory roll.There are stitch holes along the edge and, on the top, one small pull from the stitch hole to the edge. Except for a small crease the rest of this patch is in great shape. Nice eagle.
Interesting souvenir flag from veteran's estate. His name is on lower left. The center shows the cities or islands he visited on his tour and the ship name is at the top. Probably done up just after the war on a war period silk flag.
14.5 x 22.5 Inches. These small sized flags are perfect for display backdrops for lugers, daggers or whatever other Third Reich collection one might have. This one has a small pin hole above and another below the center national emblem. One side shows very minor soiling which I think adds to the feel but the clean side can always be used for the display. The last photo shows the disc on the reverse side.
Nice example of OT insignia worn on sleeve of both work shirt and service tunic. Machine embroidered and sewn, rank patch rates in perfect condition. This one has two narrow and one thicker red stripe with the thicker being a bit lighter in color then the two narrow strips. Hard to find insignia and priced quite fairly. 9.5x9.3cm.
Interesting piece of miscellaneous electronic equipment. I believe this basically equates to a voltmeter. The actual instrument looks fine but the insulation on the wire has not stood the test of time. Might still work but probably not very safely. Nice looking army eagle and abbreviation on front. The case is really nice. Very slightly out of shape but no real damage. All stitching is intact and strap and buckle are fine. Leather is still soft and supple...
Very attractive framed photograph. Shows 12 men in full uniform. Caption attributes these gentleman to the 4th Battery of the 5th Field Artillery Regiment , Landau 1908. Even if discharged, fellows like this with heavy equipment experience were invariably called back to serve in WWI. No damage to the photograph (Please excuse the light reflection in my images). Frame shows evidence of light wear but is still very nice. Something is written on the back in pencil but I can't make it out...
Very cool set of German motorcycle goggles. I have seen loose goggles before but never with the original pouch. Marked BWZ 40 (1940), the pouch has a pocket on each side and a sewn on soft cloth for cleaning on each side. There is a set of darkened goggles and a set of clear goggles. This is from a veteran estate and the set comes with the label from when they were sent home from Lt. Hoose. It does say there are two pairs of each while I only received one pair of each but such is life...
This is really a nice piece. I would assume this likely saw use in WWI but would guess the compass is actually made right around 1900. Compass works perfectly and is marked as being made in Germany. The cse was obviously made for this particular compass as the fit is real snug and the base of the compass loop nestles perfectly in the hole in the hole. Closes securely with a pressure fit. Hinge is well made and in good shape. No damage found and a nice, even patina throughout...
Really nice assistant stretcher bearer armband. Some crimping from being stored for a long time. Nicely toned white with very light staining, mostly to back. Black stitching is reall in great shape. A nice armband.
This offering is a very tasteful millefiori teapot. Small at about 4.5 inches, it shows a very delicate millefiori design.
Nice WWII American Flight Helmet. No damage at all. Nice clean label. Good representative piece.
Very nice bronze non-portable medal or medallion for WWI Victory. The front shows a brave Doughboy charging across a battlefield littered with barbed wire and a shell going off behind him. In the distance are manned trenches and defensive obstacles. The reverse reads "1917 FRANCE 1918" which represents the years of American involvement. Below is a map showing battlefields including Argonne, Verdun etc. Made by M. Lordonnois 1919. Very nice item.
