Nice original unpublished photo of Hermann Goring. He is walking with a mix of guys including some higher ranking SS fellows. I find this photo amusing due to the guys to the left of the pillar. They look like the guys in the movies that are trying not to look Gestapo but couldn't really be anything else with overcoats, fedoras and shifty body language.
Interesting wooden portable seat manufactured for the 1939 World's Fair in New York. It provided the purchaser a seat to rest upon as well as being usable as a walking cane when folded up. Very gentle age use but nice strong label and still folds up nicely and remains sturdy. 28 inches tall while opened with a seat height of 19. Great collectors item.
Very attractive embroidered tinnie from June 1938 Gau Tag in Sud-Hannover Braunschweig. Ebroidery gives a useful tool to present various city crests in color. Really a very attractive tinnie.
Nice looking patch. Luftwaffe eagle over cogwheel and "G L" designates this as technical service which was in charge of a myriad of extra "chores" from ordering parts, materials and consumer goods to organizing promotions and transfers to supplying life buoys to the Sea Emergency Service. Very nice with only minor signs of age.
Very attractive reproduction of the famous Pour le Merite medal. This is the famous German order (Oddly enough with a French name) known as the Blue Max. Nice, thick ribbon made with metallic silver weave on the sides. One light scratch on the reverse of the medal (See last photo). Very nice filler for display purposes.
Fascinating pressed paper tinnie. Tag der Nationalen Solidaritat d.Dez. 1936 Neuland-Halle - Adolf Hitler Koog. This is the only tinnie I ever recall having pertaining to a building (Which is shown on the tinnie). Apparently this was a community center house which was turn into a learning center for National Socialism history. Some very basic research shows that this building is currently a hot topic as they are trying to figure out what to do with it and its history. Paper tinnies are hard to f...
Interesting WWII Kriegsmarine soldier ceramic tinnie. Rather uncommon tinnie recently picked up with a similar Luftwaffe pilot (Listed separately). Rare tinnie.
The two silver frame pieces have seperated. Could be glued together but I think it is sort of neat being able to see how it all fits together. All parts are in good condition and have a great looking patina. Nice length of original ribbon. Really not a bad piece and a minimal repair would yield a top notch 1914 iron cross.
Very nice American victory medal. Solid condition as per photos with nice strong colors on the ribbon. A little bit od rubbing to the finish but not bad. Aisne bar nicely fixed. Just in time for the 100th anniversary.
Nice army tunic removed breast eagle. Shows nice signs of wear and really has the been-there look. On the eagle's left side is a stain likely of human origin (Not the same kind of stain as Monica's infamous blue dress). Cool insignia with a good story behind it.
Nice silver grade DJ Proficiency Badge in silver. Some age wear but good amount of applied silver finish remains. At the bottom of the arm the reverse is maker marked RZM M1/35 for the firm Wachtler & Lange, Mittweida. These minis are a good deal scarcer then the full sized version as these were indeed little boys who, no matter what nationality they may be, are very skilled at losing small things. DJ of course was were the younger kids not yet ready for the HJ.
This is the soft cover first edition from 1979. Written by the highly respected Thomas M. Johnson, this is one of the early collecting classics and is a nice, small size for carrying with you. It is in very good shape with minor age showing. A hard to find book.
Postcard of the French General Joseph Joffre. Looks to be a real signature in upper right corner. Joffre is most well known for rallying retreating allied formations and then defeating the Germans in the First Battle of the Marne in 1914. Good condition with only minor signs of age wear.
Nice 1937 Gautag tinnie. Good looking eagle over sword with bronzed finish.
These are neat tinnies from a series that replicated miniature plastic versions of HJ equipment. Looks like the original string. Nice item.
This is not my area of expertise. This Russian navy belt does look to have some age but I am unable to date it. It is lovely brocade so should be a welcome addition to a collection.
Very nice brooch for RADwj. This one is a high quality silvered tombac example and really has a good look to it. This women's labor force was designed to help with the war industry to free up manpower for active duty.
Nice looking Italian medal. This was awarded to volunteers for the war 1940-1945 (WWII). "PER L'ITALIA" on obverse. VOLONTARI DI GVERRA A.O.I. on reverse. Looks to be original ribbon with a small hole on the left front that goes through. Nice medal.
