Cool tinnie from an event on the Rhein in 1934. I don't know what it was but it is a good looking tinnie and it looks like it was probably a lot of fun.
Nice NSKOV tinnie with a good looking eagle. 1935 Deutsche Die Saar. Nice tinnie.
Cool industrial tinnie. Literally translates to "District roll call". The pin is missing as this has been monted on something with two holes in the lower corners and one in the top middle. The front is a very impressive political eagle over a DAF cogwheel swaz and Blut Und Boden swaz with big, active smokestacks in the back. It is such a powerful image it was also used on posters at the time with the posters being virtually identical to the tinnie but specifying the year as 1937 which was certai...
Cool tinnie marking 10 years of struggle in Gau Baden. Bavarian Police Sword Blade Engraving. Near perfect condition with nice chocolate bronze finish. Reverse shows original pin. This pin has a little bend in it. While this works fine it could be easily straightened out but I don't do anything that isn't necessary to my items. Nice tinnie.
Very nice Der Stahlhelm button. Condition is great with perfect finish to front. Wording around the shank on the reverse is: Wirtsch: A. St. D Bundesleitung Ges Gesch. The second image is straight on with the flash to show the lettering. The last image is a better representation of the actual tone and color. The veteran groups were often disaffected x-soldiers who were called upon to provide pre-organized muscle for various political factions who often settled their differences on the streets. I...
WWI USN dog tag. It is on what appears to be the original chain which is, unfortunately broken. Obverse includes name, Frank Brody as well as what I assume are his birthdate and maybe date of entry to the Navy: 9-1-97 and 6-18-18. USNRF was the US Naval Reserve Force. The reverse shows Frank's thumbprint. Nice piece of WWI history.
Wettkampflage Der SA Gruppe Niedersachsen 6-8 Sept 1935 Hannover. This tinnie was for some competition, probably sporting event, for this SA gruppe. Nice SA tinnie.
Interesting tinnie by Richard Sieper & Sohne. White plastic tinnie shows a great looking eagle with outstretched wings over a winged griffin. Text reads GAU KULTUR TAG (TAGE?) POMMERN 1939. I have seen similar tinnies but this Pommern variation appears to be a scarce particular example. The animals and lettering are all contrasted with gold paint giving it a good overall look. Attractive tinnie to add to a relevant collection.
Collecting the Edged Weapons of the Third Reich Volume 4 Second Edition 1981. Still shrink wrapped. I am in a place where I need to downsize a bit and I have to admit that I never got around to opening this one. Perfect shape with dustcover never touched by man.
Nice tinnie from the German colonies organization. Reichskolonialtagung, Bremen 1938. Could not have been a very large organization as Germany had no colonies that I know of. Interesting item.
Nice example of a tinnie which is almost impossible to find. Heimat und trachtenfest in berlin-steglitz lichterfelde 29 Mai bis 4 Juni 1935. This type of festival is basically a folk festival including old customs, dress and traditional entertainment. This fit well with the NSDAP outwardly promoting a return to the traditional life and values. Embroidered tinnies like this are hard to find as they have a very low survivability rate. This one is nice and clean and the weaving is in great shape. I...
Kriegsmarine EM/NCO breast eagle could not be in any better condition. Clean, perfect, original.
Cool tinnie for Tag Der Deutschen Polezei or "Day for German Police". Have not seen this one before and I do enjoy weird tinnies. Should fit nicely into just about any tinnie collection.
Interesting dog tag with what looks like some sort of battle damage. Must have been unpleasant for the fellow wearing it at the time. Probably 8th battery 161 Artillery regiment with 178 being the soldiers number. Interesting piece.
Excellent NSKK cap eagle. Nicely toned silver thread over black for Motor Brigade Westfalen Motor Gruppe Neiderhein. Very nice patch.
Excellent condition liner band for WWII German helmet. Dated 1943. Maker marked B & C LITZMANNSTADT . Complete down to the rings for the chin strap. Nice item but since I have a "don't fix" rule I guess this will never do me any real good so I will pass it on to the next guy.
I am not sure if this falls under the category of "trench art" or if it is more of a war souvenir but it is cool nonetheless. This is a letter opener with a 1914 miniature iron cross riveted on. I am not sure if this is ivory, horn or something else but I don't see any ivory grain. There is a notch to catch and tear the envelope when opening it. Small metal piece on top acts as a paper clip holding a piece of paper so I guess this could also be used as a bookmark. 10cm overall length. Just a cu...
If you are even remotely interested in Japanese militaria this is an invaluable book to have on your shelf. It is written Japanese but it is quite literally page after page stuffed with well over 1200 quality photographs of the best examples of everything. This book covers quite literally everything imaginable related to the military of Imperial Japan from uniforms and insignia, swords and guns, hats and helmets, propaganda, toys, artillery, currency and on and on. There is a small 8 page Englis...
