Very nice veteran medal for the state of Hesse. Near perfect gold gilting and clean, undamaged ribbons. Well marked to reverse. As far as veteran association medals go this is a great example.
Very nice 1914 Iron Sross 2nd class. Ring is hallmarked M . Condition of the medal is top notch and just where collectors like to see it; Very clean, undamaged and smooth but just enough very gentle aging where it is obviously real and with some personality. Nice, crisp black core and nicely toned silver frame. Original ribbon nicely folded. These have long been undervalued and are becoming a hot item with the hundredth anniversary of WWI. Top notch example of a classic medal.
Very nice SA tinnie. This was for a sports event for SA Gruppe Hochland in 1938. Good design with a sword resting on an oak leaf wreath very reminiscent of the SA sports award. Maker marked RZM M9/3 LAUER NUREMBERG. It is interesting that 1937 and 1938 are when we see transitional daggers as well with both RZM code and maker name.
Cool set of Vietnam era handcuffs. A friend bought these from the veteran. There is a bit of surface oxidation in spots but would clean up quickly with a spot of oil. Key does work fine on both sides. Original leather belt holder and two of the fellow's name tags. Nice heavy duty set.
Another gorgeous example of Italian bullion insignia. This example is a lovely gold colored wire weave. With no condition issues. Very nice cap badge.
This classic book is a pictorial history of the NSDAP and Hitler's rise to power. It is another of those interesting books with separately attached photos. While in decent overall shape, I find this one is missing 6 of 225 photos. Many are not attached tightly as the original owner seems to have had an e light touch with the glue. The cover must also have been cracked on the front inside as the binding is retaped there. Priced accordingly...
Another nice SA Brigade tinnie. This one is for Brigade 94 in Linz. 1939 Wehrwettkampfe. Nice tinnie.
Very interesting miniature DJ proficiency badge.Excellent condition and well toned. Unmarked example.
Nice medal for the annexation of the Sudetenland during the run up to WWII. Nice condition medal with small dark spot on bottom rear. Nice to get the ribbon bar attachment as well.
Interesting tinnie showing Potsdam Garrison Church with the dates March 21 1933 and March 21 1934. This tinnie is commemorating one year in power for the Nazi party. This is actually a scarce tinnie showing the same dates and motif as the 5 Reichsmark coin. Nice, early and significant tinnie.
Very nice tunic removed Schutzpolizei sleeve eagle. This is the darker example of two similar patches I am listing. Some stitching still present along the border from when it was on a uniform tunic. Patches that had clearly been used, of course, are always a little more interesting the "unissued". Nice example.
Yep, the gardening club. Membership pin reads REICHSBUND DEUTSCHER KLEINGARTNER. "Kliengartner" translates to small gardener but I believe this means "home gardener'. Odd, hard to find item and really a small but nicely made pin. The eagle is a separate attached piece and stands out nicely.
Very cool VF-151 patch. Fighter squadron flying Phantoms in Vietnam. This patch recently purchased from an advanced collection. Great looking patch with period wear.
Nice example of the armband "Im Dienst der Deutschen Wehrmacht" as worn by non-uniform personnell attached to the German army. Some wrinkling but no damage. Fair amount of staining as shown in photographs.
Nice post war signed photograph of Hajo Hermann shown with the Fat Field Marshall. Herrmann was an interesting personality on many levels. His main dedication during the war was to fight the allied bombers killing German civilians. His main focus was on British bombers intentionally targeting civilians and cities in night raids...
WWII vintage German compass typical military use. Maker mark on bottom. Solid bakelite construction. Pressure snap works very well and compass action works perfectly.
Excellent sew in shoulder board for SA with nice M rated tag. These were worn on one shoulder of the infamous SA brown shirt. Standard brown braid with silver threading. The backing on this example is a muted yellow. Tag is nice and crisp with a few additional, period notations. An excellent example.
Very nice tunic removed Schutzpolizei sleeve eagle. This is the lighter colored example of two similar patches I am listing. Some stitching still present along the border from when it was on a uniform tunic. Patches that had clearly been used, of course, are always a little more interesting then the "unissued". Nice example.
