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.
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.
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.
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.
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"...
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.
German army steel belt buckle. Some rust spotting here and there. Still, a nice, solid belt buckle.
Excellent example of a famous armband. Designated for wear by support personnel. Good color and no damage.
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...
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.
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.
This offering is an 19th century Belgian agricultural medal from the city of Liege. The maker is Raymond de MEESTER. An interesting medal.
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.
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...
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...
