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...

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 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.

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.

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 ...

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.

Overall a really nice knife with a cool personalization which is conveniently placed on the reverse where it is not overly obvious.

This is a very nice looking Austro-Hungarian badge from WWI. The front reads 1915 BELGRAD 3 ARMEE (Translation is obvious) and a landscape with significant landmarks. I am not sure of the exact purpose of this badge but it is high quality in both detail and composition (Tombak) and is good sized at 6cm x 3cm. The reverse has a very detailed maker mark reading: Entw. v. Rich. Assmann, Ausgef. v. Atelier Gurschner, Wien VII/2, Lindengasse 9. Very attractive WWI related badge at a bargain price.
