Very bright chrome plated steel army belt buckle. No idea why it was done or when. But it is a real buckle with a leather tab dated 1940 but illegible maker name. Priced accordingly.
Silver wound badge by Hersteller. dition is decent with no damage and a nice, strong pin. The finish is well worn so priced low. Good representative piece.
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"...
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.
Very cool original WWI German stickpin with two Iron Crosses (1st and 2nd Class), a Hindenburg Cross and a Silver Wound Badge. While the whole medal row is just a bit over 2.5cm the detail is terrific right down to the beading on the arms of the crosses and the 1914 being quite crisp and clear if viewed through a magnifying glass. Great piece to add with a First Class Iron Cross.
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.
Excellent example of a famous armband. Designated for wear by support personnel. Good color and no damage.
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.
This listing is offerred with all due respect for our veterans; Especially those called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Very nice POW bracelet in memory of CDR CARROLL CRAIN 3-8-67. This is the more desirable type made by VIVA. This bracelet is in its original plastic wrap with original paper. Due to age the plastic does have a few wear holes in it but the bracelet is perfect...
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...
Nice tinnie for German armed forces day of 1939. Helmet profile of soldat. One of a group of interesting tinnies recently acquired.
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 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...
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.
