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.

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. However, since I am a purist and an advocate of not fixing antiques I will include the smal...

Nice family postcard photograph with an Allgemaine SS NCO. He is a bit tucked in behind one of the ladies but some cool uniform details are evident including cuff title, collar tabs and a bit of his dagger. Unposted.

This piece came out of an advanced Imperial collection and was identified as a German lancer stable belt. I honestly can find this in none of my reference books nor can I find any other examples online. The construction and stitching certainly is consistent with WWI and the name Zoller is certainly Germanic so I am confident in this identification. There is a a stamp in red ink running for a few lines but is illegible due to age fading (See attached image 6). The leather shows wear but looks to ...

Interesting, creepy item. WWII German gas mask in box with instruction sheet. The box is rumpled but all there. Embossed on top with product information. Four page instruction sheet has very minor chipping to bottom edge. Gas mask itself looks to have never been out of the box. Rubber is supple with no dry rotting; Just a bit dusty since I don't clean anything except my kitchen. There is writing on the eye lens but since it is backwards I can't really make it out. The canister is tucked inside a...

This is the last of a very interesting group of propaganda leaflets I recently purchased. This one is titled "After Hitler's Fall" and touches on preparing the German people to get rid of Hitler and the transition to follow. It asks if the war should be abbreviated or prolonged and then goes into the questions Hitler won't ask such as "Can Hitler's Germany expected a compromise peace? Does Hitler's defeat mean German destruction? Can England deliver the German folk people from bolshevism? Does...

ONB leader rank insignia. Very nice bullion construction. The ONB was a Fascist youth organization for Italian youth and was similar in theory and practice to the Hitler Youth. High quality patch measures about 5.7x8.3cm.

Very hard to find KDF tinnie. Kraft Durch Freude was a state run recreational organization designed to give working families the opportunity to take vacations they would not normally be able to afford. The not so bad plan was to raise the moral of German workers but also to show the outside world how happy the new German workers were who were bringing Germany out of its post WWII depression. The Atlantikfahrten (Atlantic crossing) were cruises offered on board the Oceana which was owned by the K...

Interesting passbook from German occupied Latvia. Booklet is from the GENERALKOMMISAR IN LETTLAND. It appears that he only had assignment stamps. The first is December 16,1940 and the other August 8,1944. The reason is clear when you look at his occupation. He was a technicial at the Libauer Eisenwerke (Ironworks), so the fellow was lucky enough to have one of the most vital jobs in a mid 20th century war until the middle of 1944 when all bets were off. No telling what happened to him after that...

Miniature silver Hitler Youth proficiency badge. It is a bit more silver in color then it looks in the photos. Miniature lapel pins like this are a good bit scarcer then the full size version. This example is in excellent condition with only minor signs of usage nd wear (See photos). Maker is quite clear RZM M1/36. Very nice item.

Nice wound badge and matching document. Document is in decent shape with the usual crease down the middle. For its age the corners are reasonably sharp and there are no tears or missing material. The last name looks like Kargelain. I can't make out the unit but it looks like it starts with "mg" so possibly a machine gunner? Dated October 5, 1918. The wound badge is very attractive example with nice raised details. original paint is very strong with just very minimal wear to the raised details of...

Very nice mounted antler rack. This is a nice set of antlers typical to German deer. This is actually a rather good size pair measuring 8 inches from base of antler to the tip. The tag on the back indicates that the wood mount was made in Austria. Interestingly it specifically mentions Osterreich which was the name used for Austria from the beginning of German occupation to the end of WWII in 1945. This is helpful as it pinpoints the exact age of this set of antlers to 1945 at the latest. The wo...

Very neat lot of toy soldiers made by Auburn Rubber of Indiana. Because rubber does dry with age these are basically always cracked and have some damage. That being said these are rather uncommon. This lot includes 5 soldiers. The prize of the bunch is the motorcycle soldier which shows the unavoidable age cracks but no broken pieces and the wheels spin properly. This piece is balanced so it does stand freely. Also included: One officer with detached head. One soldier advancing with rifle. One f...

Interesting medallion from the aircraft designing and manufacturing company founded by Tony Fokker. Fokker is most famous for his WWI aircraft used by Germany in WWI which were revolutionary in design. As is often the case with technological development, WWI greatly accelerated advancement of aircraft design and Fokker's planes were always in the forefront of this evolution. When WWI finally ended Fokker moved his company to his native Holland . This medallion commemorates 30 years of this compa...

The air gunner / wireless operator badge is one of the cooler Luftwaffe badges. Cloth versions were authorized for wear on flight blouses (For the business end of things) and continued to be worn throughout the war even though production was stopped in 1942. This is a very nice, used example in solid condition as per photos.
