This is a great looking WWI German patriotic pin or brooch. The center is a transparent dome with an Imperial navy flag. Around that is a laurel wreath with bow. Around that layer is an attractive blue enamel field with gold colored border. Very nice piece; One would think maybe for the wife of a sailor. A little over 4cm wide.

Nice watch fob with a good looking steel helmet on background of oak leaves and acorns shown on the front. In the bottom right is a tiny BM which must represent the artist making the original mold. The reverse shows a smooth field for engraving in the center and a continuation of the oak leaf and acorn motif to the top and bottom. Shown here is: 7.J.R.19 WEIHNACHTEN 1937. All except the first "7" is raised and thus part of the casting mold. That first "7" is engraved into the fob...

Superb Iron Cross Second Class hallmarked 27 for the firm Anton Schenkl's Nachf., Wien. The hallmark was neat easy to photograph but looked at through a loop is crisp and clear without a doubt. The cross and the full length 29cm ribbon are both in perfect condition and probably unissued. The extra bonus on this one is the original issue envelope packet measuring about 9x6cm. The text is crisp, the paper is clean and healthy and its lack of damage makes it perfect for display...

Just an absolute screamer SA dagger by RZM M7/27 Pumawerke. I am quite serious when I say the only spots on this one is the little flake to the plating on the edge of the cross guard just below the eagle grip inset and the tiny rub to the scabbard paint on the backside just below the scabbard throat (See last two images for both). Other then those two spots I can't find anything worth pointing out and this is easily the best paint I have ever had on an SA scabbard...

This is a rare medal with great history behind it. This commemorative war medal was instituted by Elector (Kurfürst) Wilhelm II on 14 March 1821 to recognize Hessian soldiers who took part in the second and final round of the Napoleonic Wars 1814-1815. Inscribed on the edge is "AUS EROBERTEM GESCHÜTZ" which translates to "From captured cannon", indicating that the metal used for this decoration was from a cannon captured at Waterloo...

Absolutely lovely Imperial German war veteran flag or standard or banner. Whatever it is it is gorgeous and shows the manufacturing techniques of a bygone time. The flag has a nice, solid cotton base and sandwiched by a silk layer on each side. As is usually the case with such flags the silk has been damaged. It just doesn't take a very long period of neglect to ruin silk. Luckily the embroidery and bullion is anchored to the cotton so no details or trim work is lost...

Nice Infantry Assault Badge by R.S. Original war time production. Comes with the envelope marked Infantrie Sturm Abzeichen Bronze. Towards the bottom a bunch of purple numbers that might have meant something to someone a long time ago. Envelope is every bit of 70 years so a bit delicate, a small hole bottom reverse and some paper damage toward the reverse top. Nice badge and still presentable envelope. Nice item.

Very scarce arm badge or sleeve eagle for male DRK uniformed personnel. The patch worn by the female uniformed personnel (Triangular patch with district) is more common but the male sleeve eagle seems to be quite hard to locate. Supposedly because by the mid-war period most able bodied men were in either armed forces or armaments industry with the ladies being used more for medical purposes. Just about 6x4 cm. Fine condition with a couple small spots on the front (See image). GES.GESCH...

Nice, honest M43 Luftwaffe field cap. Size marked 55. The RBN number is too feint to read on the left side. One moth nip in the wearer's left corner of the bill. This is shown in the last image which also shows the loop for the ear flap. At its widest this nip is about 1/2 cm wide but luckily is under the chinstrap portion when worn normally. Nice, real cap priced right.

The knuckle bow features another monogram shield laying in front of more sabers, a lance and a cartridge box; All under an iron cross.

1849 dated model 1840 cavalry saber by Ames Mfg Co Cabotville. This model which predated the model 1860 is a big, heavy thing nicknamed "The Wristbreaker" and the only thing worse then swinging one would be to be on the other end. The handle wrapping is long gone and the metal parts have been painted gold long, long ago as was often done in veteran groups such as GAR. This is more subtle then in my flash heavy photos but gold painted it is. The good angle there is that the gold paint is heavily ...

First class iron cross box. This does need a little bit of tlc but mostly superficial. The upper front panel is a bit loose, some of the leatherette could be glued down and the thin fabric covering the hinge is frayed out. The first two are fixable by a spot of glue and the fabric should probably be trimmed away to make it unnoticeable since manyhave the hinge showing anyway. On the plus side, the hinge is in fine shape and the snap clasp works. The leatherette has a nice diamond pattern through...

Interesting bright red sash with kanji that translates to "Naval Aircraft Technician". I believe this would be worn on the flight deck in a similar manner that we still have different color shirts for maintenance, fire control etc. This way the confusion of a bustling aircraft carrier flight deck is a little easier to figure out. The original sewn hem of the sash is intact but it was cut apart at some point but still very displayable and if being put on a dummy could certainly be resown or pinne...

Very nice patriotic WWI pin featuring a very nicely executed miniature enamel blue max or Pour le Merite in silver colored wreath. Featured in profile in the center is Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and Kaiser Wilhelm. Probably Austrian as Franz Ferdinand is featured before the Wilhelm. A very cool miniature of one of the great military orders which, of course, was used by both Austria and Germany. Circular, measuring 2.5 cm in diameter. Have not seen this one before.

Very interesting Japanese military sake bottle. The front shows a sword, helmet and flag resting on cherry blossoms in an oval depressed into the porcelain. Above this is a star. This is a nice enough motif but as the bottle is turned it becomes evident that subtly raised from the porcelain body is a whole series of further military themes; Cavalry, artillery in action, charging infantry, a rolling tank, horse pulling limbered artillery, infantry scaling a slope, a large falling bomb and an airp...

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). Leather...

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. This is much more subtle then 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.

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. The ribbon, though, is actuall...

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. The anodized scabbard still has a rich brown color and nickel fittings matching the han...

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). Red felt and white leather washers are in place...

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.

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.
