Sportfest 1933 Nurnberg SA Brigade Mfr. Very cool tinnie from an early, important sporting event in Nuremberg which was obviously a place important to the regime. Mfr should stand for Mittel Franken. Scarce tinnie but I have seen larger awards of the same design.
Very cool Vietnam era patch from the 478th Avn Co (Heavy Helicopter) Up-Tight Hurricanes. From an advanced Vietnam era flight patch collection. Good looking patch.
Interesting cap eagle looks to be Eastern Peoples. Well worn condition but definitely an interesting piece of insignia.
What a cool item. This is a signed copy of the book Emden Ayesha by the famous captain of the Emden Kapitanleutnant Hellmuth Von Mucke. Interestingly enough, the book was printed in Berlin in 1917. No doubt the story of this famous naval personality was used as propaganda to encourage the German populace in their war effort. Von Mucke was famous for his impressive success in commerce raiding and quickly became a national hero. Obviously this book is written in German...
Interesting hat cockade for Ukranian volunteers serving with German forces during WWII. Due to Soviet treatment of Ukrainian populace (As well as other locals) many Ukraninians first considered the Germans to be liberators and quickly volunteered. To give them a sense of identity this badge was authorized for wear by those volunteers. A couple of light dings to the blue paint on front, otherwise in perfect condition. Both prongs are there on the back; They are just folded together...
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 three narrow stripes. Hard to find insignia and priced quite fairly. 8.6x9.5cm.

Very nice DRK cap badge in nice enamel work. Per 1938 regulations this pattern was authorized for use by all ranks of German Red Cross members. Back marked Ges Gesch and maker marked C.P.S. Not a terribly common eagle.
This is a great example of an interesting medal. This one still has most of the silver frosting that is long gone due to poor application process to a lame metal. Ring is hallmarked 110. The medal itself, despite poor manufacture, is a neat medal with grenade, helmet, bayonet etc. Was designed by a panzer general to commemorate the sacrifices of the soldiers during the first winter on the Russian Front...
Personal letter to a good friend of Speer's. Signed "Albert and Maragrete". The letterhead is a known pattern used by Speer.
Nicely done bone inlay tray. I would think that this is from southeast Asia. Good sized example at 47x33cm. There is a fair amount of surface wear due to age as well as missing inlay here and there. I do not repair items but I would think that the missing inlay could be filled in and of course there are always ways to fix surface wear. The wood is a mystery to me being quite dark and having a grain that looks almost like hairs. Pretty work on this piece and priced quite fairly.
Very interesting medal. I believe this was issued to show defiance to the League of Nations Sanctions probably put in place to protest Italy's campaigns in Africa. Date on medal is November 18 1935 with Mussolini's profile (Of course). This is kind of how I feel toward the UN. Not a large medal; Just a bit wider then a quarter.
