Wonderfully made naval cannon made from wood from the U.S Frigate Constitution. This frigate, of course, was famous for some very famous successes against highly skilled British ships in the war of 1812. When the ship was overhauled in 1927 the old wood was made into souvenirs and sold to the public (Imagine that happening today?). Most of these souvenirs were simply blocks of wood with a plaque attached but I do believe these canon are the higher end of the range and they rarely come available ...

Afrika Korps type tropical field cap. Sometimes termed M43 but actually M41. Condition is well worn with some damage as per images. Any markings are long gone. The tan/orange tropical insignia have been replaced with green. Perhaps the original had to replaced and the the fellow simply had no access to the original color. Any number of circumstances could have caused this and we have all seen strange things. Priced accordingly, though.

Very nice DAF unit flag. The town patch indicates it is from St Wendel Ost (Sankt Wendel). This town is just a bit north of Saarbrucken in the Saar region which is of course of great importance wo WWII history. Condition is overall excellent. There are a few small holes but this type of fabric almost encourages them with its loose weave. They are all tiny and really get lost in the size of the flag. The worst spot is the last photo. The silver twist wire fringe is in superb condition and all of ...

Really terrific lot belonging to an early panzer man, the sort of thing that doesn't come along very often. First a used postcard showing the same early model tank as is being used by the unit in question. Then there are 10 loose photos, all except for two having descriptions on the back in the same hand. With the exception of the very fine portrait photo, all are on Agfo-Lupex or Agfo-Brovira stock and all are full of men in the early panzer berets and black uniforms. Some show signs of having ...

1849 dated model 1840 cavalry saber by Ames Mfg Co Cabotville. This model which predated the model 1860 is a big, heavy thing nicknamed "The Wristbreaker" and the only thing worse then swinging one would be to be on the other end. The handle wrapping is long gone and the metal parts have been painted gold long, long ago as was often done in veteran groups such as GAR. This is more subtle then in my flash heavy photos but gold painted it is. The good angle there is that the gold paint is heavily ...

Nice Police officer degen / sword with the lobster maker logo of Peter Dan Krebs. The blade is an extremely crisp and clean matte finish example fitting quite snugly into the handle. The lower hilt has the double lightning bolt SS proof, reflective of the fuzzy difference between the leadership, duties and even personnel of the police and SS organizations. The grip has a very nice looking copper police eagle inset and nickel fittings with patina matching the rest of the handle and scabbard fitti...

Very nice officer's visor cap. Sometimes the piping colors drive me a bit nuts but I think this is Transport but possibly Sonderfuhrer. It is a soft, pale blue. At any rate it is an interesting variation. Condition is really top notch. I find one nip just over the eagle and one nip in the velvet band just over the right side slide knot. Then there is a stain on the inside liner. All three of these condition issues are visible in the photos. The negatives being said, this hat is in super shape. V...

Very nice early style NSKK motorcycle crash helmet. Eagle plate has cool yellow patina that only nickel seems to get. Nice piece of insignia. The helmet itself is complete. Leather is strong but could benefit from leather conditioner but there is no hurry on that and I prefer to let the long term owner do such treatment. One side ear cover does show some scuffing. Liner is size 58 and complete/undamaged. Front tongue is maker marked Hans Sch- . Nice, scarce helmet.

Here is a real rare one. These felt helmets were modeled after the typical WWI steel helmet with the same shape and basic angles. I have seen these in photos in use in Stahlhelm / Freikorps settings. The difference between Freikorps and veterans groups was often (And intentionally) very hazy. I have seen similar helmets (Or hats as the case may be) twice before but, as they are made of felt, condition was very poor. This one is in shockingly good condition as per photos. The damage I find consis...

Very nice steel SS belt buckle out of my collection. Excellent detail throughout. Marked RZM 155/40 SS for F. W. Assmann & Söhne of Lüdenscheid. The 40 indicates maufacture in 1940. Nice, rare buckle.

Top notch signed photograph of Nicolae Ceaucescu from the collection of Hirsch Cohen. Hirsch Cohen is well known as having been a titan in the autograph collecting hobby. Ceausescu is a hard autograph to find as he was suddenly executed while in office after a military coup in 1989. Making this probably the best Ceausescu signature one could find is the fact that it includes the envelope from Romania and the letter addressed to Hirsch Cohen regarding the signature. All well framed in communist r...

Very interesting engraving on this Imperial German artillery sword. Gorgeous blade is clean as a whistle and bright as a mirror with nicely executed and detailed engraving. One side shows the limbered artillery and stands of arms motif we see on some engraved artillery swords. The other side shows a mounted soldier, horse head and floral motif engraved along with the dedication Fritz Neuf Weihnachten 1910 (With Weinachten translating to Christmas). Red felt and white leather washers are in place...

Very interesting helmet. Many Dutch helmets were used by foreighn volunteers fighting with the Germans. When not in use by Dutch soldiers the lion crest was generally removed. The fact that it remains here indicates this was possibly used by Dutch SS voluntees. The camouflage paint job is certainly old and period and the name label being German corroborates. Whatever its story may be this is a fascinating helmet. Liner is fine but metal buckles are well rusted.

Interesting NSKK dagger. Personalized by some cat named "Feather" and dated Jan 2 1946. Not a bad job and I think this actually adds a bit instead of hurting it. Engraving is on the scabbard which has nice, original black paint in great shape. Blade is very nice with good blackening and cross graining visible. Blade has a bit of black oxidation right where it meets the cross guards. The cross guards show some spotting but plating is still in good shape throughout. Handle has some light stress c...

M35 Artillery waffenrock for Oberfeldwebel rank. There is some nipping as per images but priced right and includes first pattern marksmanship lanyard. The worst spot is luckily at the bottom corner and covered when front is buttoned. Reasonable representative example.

Top notch private purchase infantry officer visor cap. This one is a cherry on the outside with a nice tight shape and no nips to the shell, piping or velvet band. Excellent bullion eagle, wreath and cockade as preferred by frontline personnel. The visor is also in excelent shape top and bottom. The inside sweatband reads Stirndruckfrei (Pressure free to the forehead) and has the patent number (DRGM...). About two inches of the sweatband on the wearer's left has been restitched but looks like a ...

Here is a unique offering. First there is a photo of a well fed Confederate veteran. While the grouping came out of Richmond, Virginia, I unfortunately do not know who this fellow is. Included are three Confederate veteran medals, all of which can be seen on our man's chest in the photograph. The first is the standard UCV Southern Cross of Honor. Looks great but is minus the pin on the reverse. Second is a 1907 U.C.V. medal from Richmond. The front has a dedication to Jefferson Davis. The revers...
