Top notch Luftschutz other ranks belt and buckle set. The EM box buckle is close to perfect on the front and nearly perfect finish on the interior. Some minor age wearon the top and bottom maybe from that being where one might pick it up and leave oils on the surface. But even this wear is more like a light freckling. The leather belt is in superb condition and likely never issued or worn since even the leather plugs remain in a few of the holes from when the punching was done (Image 7)...

Great looking WWI German regimental ring. The enamel center is cleverly designed to represent a shoulder board. To the left of the enamel shoulder strap is 1914 and to the right is 1914. The inside of the band is hallmarked 860 for the silver content. Because it is silver and was worn the years (Mostly 1914) do show some light rub wear but are still perfectly visible. Very nice regimentally marked piece.

Very rare 1930's private purchase USMC EGA cap insignia (Eagle, Globe and Anchor). Terrific detail throughout with longitudinal and latitudinal lines. The eagle's right wing reverse has the MEYER METAL logo and the reverse of the left wing has the NS Meyer shield logo. The lower right corner of the eagle is darker then the rest of the EGA. Presumably this had something to do with how it was stored but whatever the reason my golden rule is to just leave it alone...

Really nice looking WWI Wound Badge in Gold. Textbook example with a subtle but even and complete gold finish. There is no damage on only the lightest signs of gentle age wear. Very nice medal.

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.

Extremely rare and extremely cool 3/4 sized 1914 Iron Cross Second Class. This extremely rare and extremely high quality private purchase medal has the feel and toning of silver. The ring is hallmarked with what looks like the crest of the firm Rothe & Neffe of Vienna. With my calipers I measure the wide of the end of the cross arms at just a hair under 18mm. On the regulation EKII, shown in the images for comparison purposes only, the arms measure 24mm at the end...

Very rare item with a high cool factor. This nicely toned silver stickpin is for members of the Bavarian air service and the wreath and frame are identical to Imperial German pilot badges with a Bavarian crown at the top. The enamel center shows a gold winged propeller over a Bavarian-blue field. The post is correctly knurled. The back is maker marked L LERCH MUNCHEN and SILBER 850 for the silver content.

Gorgeous Ground Rohm by C.G. Haenel in Suhl. I have seen this maker produce great looking handles and the grain in this grip fits the pattern. The inset eagle, SA roundel and nickel fittings all fit snug and tight throughout with no odd angles and a bolt that certainly looks unturned. The blade is clean and crisp except for the expected signs of the grind job on the side that would have the Rohm presentation...

Very interesting engraving on this Imperial German artillery sword. Gorgeous blade is clean as a whistle and bright as a mirror with nicely executed and detailed engraving. One side shows the limbered artillery and stands of arms motif we see on some engraved artillery swords. The other side shows a mounted soldier, horse head and floral motif engraved along with the dedication Fritz Neuf Weihnachten 1910 (With Weinachten translating to Christmas)...

Very cool pin or tinnie in the shape of a potato masher grenade. Gold finish looks like an applied foil with J.R. 58 etched. I could not find an army 58 Jager Regiment so I do believe this is referring to the paratrooper regiment (FJR) 58. Whatever the unit, it is a cool pin that I have not seen before.

Nice JFS Infantry Assault Badge in bronze. Not a whole lot of finish left but certainly more then enough to see it is a bronze (See attached images). No structural damage but the ball hinge on the reverse is a bit loose in its socket and turns like a bomber's ball turret gun if it is pushed when the pin is not latched. This is not at all ready to brake but should be mentioned. Overall a nice badge priced right.

Nice Police officer degen / sword with the lobster maker logo of Peter Dan Krebs. The blade is an extremely crisp and clean matte finish example fitting quite snugly into the handle. The lower hilt has the double lightning bolt SS proof, reflective of the fuzzy difference between the leadership, duties and even personnel of the police and SS organizations...

Lovely Imperial German WWI patriotic pin. This piece features a 1914 Iron Cross with the slogan GOTT MIT UNS on the three upper arms and a portrait of Kaiser Hindenburg in the center. The beaded suspension loop is finished off with a miniature 1914 Iron Cross ribbon. The reverse is DRGM marked. The cross is about 2.4cm wide and high and the ribbon is about 1.5cm wide. Very cool patriotic piece with a lot of personality.

Very nice early quality tombac gold wound badge. Really amazing that some of these guys managed to get shot this many times before 1940 was finished. Very gentle wear on this one with a nice, solid finish. The first image is with a flash and shows any wear that may be there but tends to bleach out the color. The second image is without a flash and shows the color well but little detail. Really nice example.

Quite respectable WWII Japanese Type 95 NCO sword. Scabbard does show honest age wear to the original paint. The blade has some dark areas but much of what is shown in the attached images is dried cosmoline. Sword and scabbard have matching numbers 76707 and handle has the expected arsenal stamps. Nice original example priced right for someone who wants a representative piece.

Excellent condition on this Political Officer visor cap insignia wreath and cockade set. A rotten thing to have to try to find in good condition when you need it. The wreath still has complete gold wash and is back marked RZM M1/17 which corresponds to Assmann and Sohne, Ludenscheid. Properly affixed to the middle of this wreath is a political officer cockade with perfect, undamaged enamel. It is RZM marked on the reve3rse but while the first number (5) is visible the second is not...

Superb reference book on Japanese pistols from the WWII era and earlier. Of course there is an emphasis on the famous Nambu models but it does cover other relevant examples. Very gently used condition; Minor shelf wear with no damage. All pages are crisp and clean with sharp corners. Great reference to have if this matches one's interest. I am charging only $10 more then I paid 22 years ago.

Superb Luftwaffe winter flight helmet by Siemens. This model LPkW101 was the later war cold weather flight helmet with significantly upgraded electronic communications. This example is just about perfect. Shell shows soft, healthy, unscuffed brown leather. Interior wool is bright and clean with the original fabric Siemens label which is likewise in perfect shape with crisp, clean and well contrasting wording with no running colors. The main plug is bakelite, maker logo marked and also marked BLK...

1941 Die Wehrmacht magazine lot with archival binder which is a very hard to find item. On the inside spine is a blue label reading "MAPPENMULLER LEIPZIG 1C". This is shown in image 3 which also shows the metal clips at the top of the spine used to bind the magazines. Image 4 shows the bottom right corner which is the only corner showing any significant age wear, as well as the metal clips for the bottom of the binder spine. These were separate when I got them and I am not going to diddle with t...

Fritz Zimmerman maker marked Infantry Assault Badge. This one is missing the catch hook which is a crying shame as this is a very desirable maker. Lots of finish remains on this textbook example and is about 100% on the reverse. I am sorry about the damage but all I can do is price it low.

Very rare and very cool program for the 1937 Reichskriegertag in Kassel. The main dignitaries seem to have been Mackensen and Himmler so filled with lots of good SS photos but great general images throughout. 72 pages. The spine does have a tape repair but not poorly done. Otherwise in good condition with only a few minor corner folds and solid color to cover. nice, clean pages throughout. Priced about half of similar examples.

Nice RAD Labor Service enlisted man's hewer. All original and in good condition. The scabbard has been repainted but is a very good job. While there is some light oxidation and spotting on the blade this has not been cleaned and a thorough go-over would likely help greatly. Honest example priced right.

Very cool looking post-war Geran police jacket. Very high quality with not cheap cloth slip on shoulder straps but integral leather sewn on straps with nicely embroidered stars. I do not know what rank level three stars is in the post-war German police but surely a high level. Looks like it came from Recklinghausen in the northern Ruhr. Really an extremely well made jacket.

Luftwaffe Double Decal M35 with solid camouflage remaining. Colors are a nice, deep autumn or late summer and have a look that leaves no doubts. Maker and size marked Q64. Soldier's name is on the liner and initials painted on the skirt. One liner tongue has an old repair but very subtly done. Top notch helmet with a great combat look that would fit well in any collection.

Very attractive Japanese officer dress sword with blade presentation. I can't make it all out but I believe to an officer of the 35 Infantry. I have seen such a presentation before attributed to a military school. The Mon (Or family crest) is the Mandarin Orange. One branch of the Matsudaira family used a similar crest and the Ii family used a few variations. The Ii family is a famous samurai family who, besides having an unpronounceable name, were known as the red Devils as the preferred fully ...

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.
