Interesting Wehrpass. Not much filled out byut it appears this fellow, Robert Alois Flassenberg, was witht he recruiting department or Wehrbezicks Kommando. More interestingly, this group was in Hagenau (As seen on the stamps and entries both). This was the town shown in Band of Brothers. This town stayed in German hands until almost the end of the war and wwas featured in one of the later episodes "The Last Patrol"...
Respectable pair of cavalry officer's spurs. One buckle and the end of the opposite leather strap are missing and it looks as if they were ripped open when buckled. The other spur shows an intact buckle and strap. Interesting item priced fairly considering damage.
EM NCO breast eagle with a great look. Some stitching thread remains along the border. The patch itself is in fine shape except for one tiny pull on the eagle's left wing (Viewer's right) which is very minor and can be seen in the first attached image. I love these tunic removed pieces and will take this any day over a factory roll example. Great front line look.
Nice little set of ivory salt ad pepper shakers. Dragon motif on the sides of each. Very nice ivory grain visible on the flat surfaces. Interesting set; priced right.
Nice looking NSKK sleeve eagle. RZM tag remains but in obviously worn condition (See photo). There are a few thread loops remaining from when this was sewn on a tunic. Nice patch with a good degree of character.
Excellent example of a famous armband. Designated for wear by support personnel. Good color and no damage.
Nice Gendarmerie sleeve eagle. Orange eagle with black swaz on field grey backing. The eagle on this one is gorgeous but the backing has some chipping on the edge and some threadbare spots along the top of the patch. This is most certainly due to it being worn excessively. There are a few threads left along the edge from when this was removed from the tunic. nice, honest eagle priced right.
Very nice looking and rather uncommon WWI medal with a pleasant bronzed finish throughout. This was made for veterans from the DC area. The front shows winged Victory standing atop a globe with the capital building in the background. On the arms of the cross are 1917 and 1919 which represent the span of American involvement in that particular mess. Original ribbon and pin. Reverse reads "Presented by the citizens of the District of Columbia February 1919"...
Nice gebirgsjager officer's edelweiss cap badge. Some oxidation to reverse. Pin assembly still works fine. Nice example.
Very attractive Imperial German navy photo album. Reddish brown color with very nice flag artwork on the cover with the words "Kriegs Erinnerungen" or "War Memories". Unfortunately the album is empty but the first page has the original owner's name "Steinbach" and the years 1914 1915 and 1916. The rest I can not make out and it looks like the location was intentionally erased. This writing is shown on the last attached image...
This offering is an 19th century Belgian agricultural medal from the city of Liege. The maker is Raymond de MEESTER. An interesting medal.
Nice tinnie for German armed forces day of 1939. Helmet profile of soldat. One of a group of interesting tinnies recently acquired.
Very cool dog tag for Oflag II E . "Oflag" was basically a stalag for captured allied officers. Oflag II E was known as Camp Funfeichen in Neubrandenburg, Germany and began accepting Polish officers. The next wave was from the Balkans and included British and Yugoslavian officers. In 1941 Soviet officers began arriving. Later in the war some Italian officers arrived after Italian capitulation. Eventually American officers began arriving...
Soft A-9 American flight helmet. Often worn under the heavy flak helmets also. Missing an ear pad but otherwise in great shape. Original ear pads can be found 3easily. Priced to sell.
Very nice Wurttemberg Kriegerbund medal. This was for WWI veterans. Very nicely done Wurtemberg state shield on top and ribbon shows solid coloring and reads "Krieger Der. Debringen". The small metal weights are still present at the bottom of the ribbons. So often the ribbon is washed out and the weights are generally long gone. Back plate has manufacturer marks "METALLWARENFABRIK A.D. SCHWERDT STUTTGART". This is a very nice example for one of the smaller states.
Very cool dog tag from Stalag XII A . Prisoner number 88 871 . This POW camp was located in Thorn Poland and initially received captured Polish prisoners. In 1940 the first 403 British prisoners arrived from the fighting in Norway. These were followed by around 4500 from Dunkirk and then soldiers from the 51st Highland Inf. Div. captured in Saint-Valery-en-Creux. In 1941 the first Soviet prisoners began arriving and this became the norm until liberation on February 1 1945...
Two cool equipment plates for a German vehicle. The larger says something about draining before removing the nut and was apparantly glued in place as there are no corner holes and glue residue on the reverse. the second translates to Transmission with maker code and serial numbers. I can not find the code fdp in any of my reference books and online searches tend to bring up a million returns for "free democratic party". This one was nailed into place...
Second model DRL Badge. Front shows wonderfully with no wear and pleasing toning. Reverse shows a reworked pin and it is priced accordingly. Marked "D.R.G.M. 35269 WERNSTEIN JENA". Despite repair, a very good badge for display as the front is very attractive.
