Very nice fascist Italian 9th Army (9 Armata) medal commemorating the 1940-1941 campaign in Greece and Albania (Given on the medal as Grecia E Jugoslavia). This famous campaign was basically a disaster and required the involvement of German forces to save the day. This of course caused a delay in the German invasion of Russia spelling disaster for the enterprise. One could say that this poorly planned and poorly executed campaign by the Italians drastically changed the course of history...

Personalized copy of the WWI dated machine gun manual. Front cover has the handwritten info "Co C 1st Tank Cadre A.E.F.". The word "cadre" is a guess as this is illegible. A.E.F. is "Allied Expedtionary Force". The cover shows superficial wear but is surprisingly strong and sharp. The pages inside are also crisp and clean and show 288 pages of text, photographs, charts and diagrams. Very nice, very early item relating to both WWI tanks and machine guns.

This is a good looking double sided pennant which is made with a reasonably high degree of quality. If not for the nipping visible in the attached images it would be a real looker. The long edges are about 53cm and the short edge is about 18cm which makes this a nice, smaller size which usually works well for display purposes. The center swaz is a nice bevo weave and the outside of the white discs are nicely chain stitched...

HJ proficiency badge. Nice and clean with a very smooth patina with perfect, super crisp detail. RZM M1/34. This is priced low because it looks like there was a number that was removed for some reason.

Very interesting propaganda leaflet aimed at German troops. This would probably be dropped on German troops and would equate to psy-ops operations. This small paper, about 17x11cm. The intent was to give the German soldiers information on the two fronts of their war to cause them to lose heart. One side gives the situation on the Western Front on January 16 1945...

Superb reference book on Japanese pistols from the WWII era and earlier. Of course there is an emphasis on the famous Nambu models but it does cover other relevant examples. Very gently used condition; Minor shelf wear with no damage. All pages are crisp and clean with sharp corners. Great reference to have if this matches one's interest. I am charging only $10 more then I paid 22 years ago.

Terrific set of unissued Luftwaffe officer collar tabs still with factory tie connecting them at bottom corner. Perfect bullion and nice orange felt representing signals branch. Three gulls, oak leaves and aluminum braid trim represent rank of Hauptmann or Captain. Really nice set without a lick of damage.

This offering is a very tasteful Japanese bud vase featuring three characters in kimono. It measures a little under 4 inches. For whatever reason, the signature is blackened making it hard to make out.

Gorgeous enamel work on this Westmark party pin for the Alsace Loraine area. Backmarked W. REDO SAARLAUTERN. Good maker making a high quality enamel pin resulting in flawless fish scale red enamel. This level of quality yields a front surface on which one's finger can find no edges between black, white and red fields; Just buttery smooth. Unbeatable example.

I wish it were real but it isn't. Nice repro example for a reenactor or someone who just wants a cool looking mannequin. Summer green on one side and autumn browns on the other.

No frills Japanese army overcoat. Definitely shows signs of having been there, with honest but not too excessive wear. Missing two buttons. Not a fancy piece but certainly priced right.

Very interesting medal and a good display of Spanish colors. Front has, under a gold crown, an enamel roundel with the lettering ENSENANZA MILITAR with the bust of a Spartan warrior. This is on a very three dimensional ribbon which has about 3/4 inch depth with ends of nice, high quality bullion. Reverse has a nice pinback assembly. All in overall excellent condition as per photos. This comes with a 4 1/2 x 3 1/4 inch photo of a Spanish soldier with the medal being worn...

Odd little bayonet that I can not identify. An even 25cm long and the socket opening is 63mm. Socket also appears to be separate welded piece. Very odd, very interesting.

Interesting antique firemen's medal dated October 4-5-6 1923. Very nice fireman artwork on the medallion portion. While fire medals are not particularly rare this one is also notable as it has the ribbon and cockade which are normally all long gone. As can be seen in the images the red ribbon has some damage and the MEMBER bar to the top of the ribbon needs a couple of stitches to reattach to the cockade...

Extremely cool anti-Nazi propaganda leaflets. I do not know if these were produced by US, UK or Russia but they are rare and extremely interesting. The front translates to something like" Defending the partei means the destruction of your home". the main body of the message basically says that the German soldier want peace and are tired of five years of useless fighting. The party and the SS are ready to take and sacrifice the last German soldiers; the last school boy who can only carry a gun...

Elastolin soldier suffering the effects of a Lineol explosion. Great analogy of the competitive spirit between these two companies. In actuality both companies made good products and these two pieces look good together. Both in very good shape except the usual cracking around the fellows arms. As these dry they often have to give somewhere and across the arms is a common spot. Still a really nice looking pair.
