Very interesting French flag that I assume is a regimental flag as the three barred symbols toward the end can't, in my eyes, be anything besides battalion colors. As there are very few French flags remaining from the war (A side effect of being out of the war very early and very quickly) there is little to compare this to but the construction is absolutely typical of WWII era with type of grommets used, type of fringe and how the sewing is executed. The silver fringe is beautifully made and nic...

Extremely rare and extremely cool 3/4 sized 1914 Iron Cross Second Class. This extremely rare and extremely high quality private purchase medal has the feel and toning of silver. The ring is hallmarked with what looks like the crest of the firm Rothe & Neffe of Vienna. With my calipers I measure the wide of the end of the cross arms at just a hair under 18mm. On the regulation EKII, shown in the images for comparison purposes only, the arms measure 24mm at the end. The ribbon, though, is actuall...

Nice example of a Prussian enlisted pickelhaube spiked helmet. All original parts. The red, white and black cockade looks to have been repainted. There is a tear in the liner (See 3rd and 4th photos) and two tongues have torn where the tie string goes through. The plate has two extra holes which is odd because it is doubtful this was "upgraded" to a Prussian EM. The rear spine prongs are gone but it is firmly in place, being held by the back screw and pressure from the spike assembly. There is a...

Militar Verwaltung Belgien Und N Frankreich. Very scarce civilian military official or administration badge. Worn by non-uniform military officials in some Western Europe occupied territories. This one is for Belgium and Northern France. The photos I have seen of this badge in use are all on women. I imagine that this was a popular item to get rid of when the Germans left an area which may explain its scarcity. This is numbered 4115. Has the correct catch while many that I have seen online incor...

Nice signals officer visor cap with lemon yellow piping. Interior is marked Deutsche Wertarbeit with the maker logo showing an officer wearing visor cap in profile. There are a couple of minor nips and a bit of roughness to the finish of the front visor but all in all a good looking cap priced accordingly.

Very scarce item. Dutch NSKK volunteer Badge of Honor. These were only awarded in two separate ceremonies. Among recipients were something like 40 Dutch NSKK drivers attached to 6th Army that were pulled out of Stalingrad pocket. A few have recently turned up near Berlin but as they are dug they are in relic condition and mostly broken. Word on top of badge "TROUW" translates to loyalty or honor. As this was for NSKK, outher portion of badge is a tire inside of which is the Wolf's Angle (Dutch S...

Historically important binoculars from LZ127 which was the airship Graf Zeppelin. Power marking is 8x25 and the L.Z.127 markings are an exact match to the power markings. Absolutely real, authentic memento from the most famous airship ever to not explode in New Jersey. Shows significant wear as per images and most of the leather covering is gone to time. The optics look clear enough but the focus dial on one side does not turn. I am not a big binocular guy so I don't know why. There is a maker n...

Very nice DRK enlisted visor cap. Terrific example with no significant damage. The black chinstrap does show honest period wear to the black surface but nothing even remotely coming close to a break or a tear. The celluloid diamond on the inside is cracked and in one corner of the visor there are four stitches out. Both of these issues are shown in the photos and the visor lays on the hat frame just fine. There are many positive. I find no evidence of any mothing anywhere. Whole frame is nice an...

Superb First Class Iron Cross. This is a 900 marked three piece award. Probably the best I've ever had. Some very light wear to the front but nothing that one wouldn't expect on a real piece. Stabilizing spike is on the upper reverse. No damage found. please see images for condition; It is nice.

Here is a truly fascinating piece with a great look to it. Four place round ball bullet mold. The mold portion is brass. The smallest ball mold diameter is about 7mm and the largest is about 13mm. The swiveling arms are iron and the handles are wood. The brass portion has written on the side FAI PAR COUPIL A BONNETABLE. The design is simple but when the handles are swiveled out and squeezed it is clear that plenty of pressure can be brought to bear. The arms do have a little jiggle to them but t...

Very high quality full dress tunic for Japanese naval captain. Lovely dark blue shell with bullion work around the color that is just out of this world. There is one small snag in the bullion but almost impossible to see with all the activity. None of the buttons look to be reattached nor does there seem to be any repairs. The inside is made of a high quality quilted fabric that is very clean and pleasantly pliable. There a couple of tine rub holes on the inside lining but truly not a big deal a...

Very tastefully executed katana tsuba showing a Dragon in the Clouds motif. Attractive dragon with very fine detail contrasts very nicely with the plain surface of the majority of the tsuba. The front shows the dragon's head, one leg and tail. The reverse shows just one small body segment and about an inch away from that just two toes, supporting the idea the sometimes less is more. Large size measures 8.5cm from top to bottom, 8.0cm from left to right, about 4.5mm thick and weighs just about 5....

Very interesting and very rare item. This is a rare (And obsolete / defunct) badge for employee of Sing Sing prison. I am not sure when numbered badges were put into use there but this would have been shortly thereafter with a low badge number of 171. Really a great look to this badge with an even and pleasant degree of age wear on the front (See photos). While the main anchoring would be done by the screwback on the reverse I believe there may have been a stabilizing pin on the reverse of the e...

Interesting doeskin jacket. Definitely old and definitely real but has a Hitler Youth diamond pin and gold lettered Hitler Youth district triangle. All buttons are HJ DJ buttons. I can't think of anybody spuriously putting the boys' triangle on when the girls' is cheaper. I am leaning toward this being worn by a woman who was involved with the Hitler Youth and don't see any reason why this is not possible. A couple of spots on the back look like something that could be scraped off (I touch nothi...

Way cool gold eagle for luftwaffe general's summer tunic. Very strong gold finish with very light wear to the front. Reverse shows gentle patination. Pin is a little bit bent but I see that as a non-issue. The final image is interesting as it shows the border of where the gold finish was applied and not applied. Just a really neat item.

Superb Luftwaffe winter flight helmet by Siemens. This model LPkW101 was the later war cold weather flight helmet with significantly upgraded electronic communications. This example is just about perfect. Shell shows soft, healthy, unscuffed brown leather. Interior wool is bright and clean with the original fabric Siemens label which is likewise in perfect shape with crisp, clean and well contrasting wording with no running colors. The main plug is bakelite, maker logo marked and also marked BLK...
