Nice wound badge and matching document. Document is in decent shape with the usual crease down the middle. For its age the corners are reasonably sharp and there are no tears or missing material. The last name looks like Kargelain. I can't make out the unit but it looks like it starts with "mg" so possibly a machine gunner? Dated October 5, 1918. The wound badge is very attractive example with nice raised details...

Absolutely gorgeous SA dagger marked M7/67/41; Gottleib Hammesfahr 1941 production. The blade isclean and bright with cross graining throughout. There is the tiniest bit of freckling here and there that is so light it can only be seen in photos without flash as the flash drowns it out; Images 7,8 and 12. The motto etching in crisp and dark. the Handle has a line mark here and there but is overall clean as a whistle with bright factory fresh finish...

Good looking tunic removed SS sleeve eagle. Machine woven EM or NCO pattern. Some darkening to the eagle's right wing possibly combat related. Very nice insignia if you like the combat worn look. I really like this eagle and think it has a great overall look.

This is a top nothc, unpublished Hitler photo with real historical significance. This is from a grouping from Gauleiter Adolf Scheel and is subsequently backmarked from the office of the Salzburg Gauleiter. The photo is dated April 29 1942 which coincides with a meeting with Benito Mussolini. The photo shows a group of nine German big-wigs at the train tracks presumably waiting for Mussolini. The mountains can be seen in the background...

Terrific photo of an early party parade rally. The focal point of the photo is a truck full of SS men in very early SA style uniforms passing a band in similar uniforms. SS insignia are clear on the coffee can hats. The truck itself has a large side banner with national flag and SS runes and reads SS Motorsturm I/21 (The last numbers are not clear but I this is the closest approximation I can give). The reverse has the photographer stamp Brillen-Schmidt Magdeburg Breitweg 56...

This SS marked ordnance sword by Carl Eickhorn is a special item and has been in my collection for a good number of years. There is little doubt that the SS/I markings are original to the sword. The obvious assumption that the "I" would indicate Leibstandarte A.H. is supported by the very limited number of "armed" SS units at the time these ordnance swords were in use...

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.

There is a stamp in the leather of the rear visor. It is light and the first letter is unrecognizable, after the first letter it looks like K.75 . The negatives are that the cockade is missing on both sides and the stitching of both visors is gone...

The first medal is a nice enamel 1914 iron cross but the prize in the row is the second medal which is a lovely Bavarian merit cross with very fine detail and nice blue enamel arms. The row is finished by a Hindenburg Cross and a black wound badge. Very nice lapel pin intended for wear by the recipient of these medals while in civilian clothes.

GIL membership badge. The GIL was the Italian fascist equivalent to the Hitler Youth. This piece is termed a badge but is not too large with a height of 2.5cm. This was to be worn when the member was in civilian clothes. Nice red enamel on the lower half with orange on the top. Condition is perfect. Very well marked on the reverse, including patent information. Interesting pin.

Soldier's name on the rear looks like Blankenberg. Maker and size marked TJ66 for C. Thiel & Soehne, Luebeck. There is damage to the front two liner tongues.

There are no holes but their are light stains here and there. It looks like maybe something was spilled on it when it was folded but the stains are relatively light.

I believe this to be a horseshoe cleaner. During WWI armies were extremely reliant on horsepower for mobility. This was a fact even in WWII far more then most realize. This is a simple blunt iron blade on a wood hilt. The "blade" is slightly curved but with an exaggerated hook on the end. The blade is dated 1916. There is also a maker logo on the ricasso. It is very light only only a few letters are visible on the right side around the image of a horse. Interesting item.

Terrific quality GIL leader dagger. GIL was the Fascist youth movement and basically equivalent to the Hitler Youth. This dagger also includes the extremely hard to find leather hanger. These hangers were not particularly well made and the leather used is a bit flimsy so few have survived the decades. This set looks to have been together for the duration. All of the brass fittings on dagger, scabbard and hangers have the same pleasant patina indicating that if this was ever cleaned it was a long...

The knuckle guard is clean as a whistle and backmarked A.C.Co. USA 1917. The grip shows a nice, healthy wood mostly free of damage except for 5 notches that look intentionally placed. The hard to find scabbard is in similar solid condition with all rivets in place. The scabbard metal fittings are clean and smooth with both pieces ...

Eagle's wingspan is 7cm. Eagle is machine woven with correct blue-grey thread. Nice, original, textbook example of a hard to find patch.

Terrific full tang Samurai arrowhead. Head shows some darkening but no pitting so would polish out quite nicely although it looks fine as is. Full length is 20cm with the head being about 3.4cm. Very thick diamond shaped head would create a wound that would have difficulty healing. I would conservatively put the age at late Edo period but could easily be far older then 19th century. Very nice, hard to find item.

They measure about 3.7cm wide and about 6.8cm high. They are generally clean but because of how they were stored #50 (7 piece medal bar) is a tiny bit dirty on the bottom and #...

The leather belt is unit marked "Bekl.L-Lg XIII". No idea what this stands for. Under the tab at the hook end is a Frankfurt maker logo and 1938 date (See last photo). The black paint on th...

Superb item. The top of the sake cup reads "Prize". Writing around the rim on the outside translates to Showa 8 (1938) Warship Kaga. I am not sure what this was awarded for but I would assume it had something to do with some military skill. The Kaga was one of the four aircraft carriers sunk in the Battle of Midway which was the turning point in the Pacific war so this attribution is really a very significant point. A really nice item which would be at home in even an advanced collection.

Bronze badges, of course, were given to panzer grenadiers and motorized infantry thus tending to be with more elite units and were common in the Waffen SS as these units tended to be armor heavy.

Very cool uncut roll of Japanese 2nd Class Private collar insignia. This is one of my Tokyo flea market finds. On the outside layer there are five sets of two tabs. I counted 47 layers, give or take a few because it is a tight roll and not easy to count. The layers get smaller towards the middle but there should be somewhere around 175 pairs so I am pricing at one dollar per pair. Fun to find unused gear out if the woodwork.

As it was a higher award there were three shells hanging from the bottom but two have been unscrewed and lost. What a lanyard this was once. Braided cord has the German red white and black colors woven throughout. But I am sure someone out there has the plate and needs the fabric.

The last section telescopes telescopes into the second. This combination unscrews from the bottom section and if turned around will screw in inside the bottom. Very clever.

It is hard to make out but looks like it is probably the WILM hallmark which is an odd variant. If not it is just some other weird variant so cool regardless. Lovely cross if you are one looking for different variants.
