OST Ostarbeiter patch. Intended to show that laborers were imported eastern laborers. The freedom of these eastern laborers seems to have varied greatly. I think the majority of these patches were worn by Ukranians brought in to work industry while most of the German male work force was on active duty. Condition is overall excellent with minor signs of age.

Cool Japanese helmet with Rising Sun painted on front. Liner system is gone and some damage to top in the form of three round dents. Some civil defense force units did paint these on and this paint is certainly old. Supposed to have come from Okinawa; A point I have no reason to disbelieve. Great look.

Afrika Korps type tropical field cap. Sometimes termed M43 but actually M41. Condition is well worn with some damage as per images. Any markings are long gone. The tan/orange tropical insignia have been replaced with green. Perhaps the original had to replaced and the the fellow simply had no access to the original color. Any number of circumstances could have caused this and we have all seen strange things. Priced accordingly, though.

Interesting antique firemen's medal dated October 4-5-6 1923. Very nice fireman artwork on the medallion portion. While fire medals are not particularly rare this one is also notable as it has the ribbon and cockade which are normally all long gone. As can be seen in the images the red ribbon has some damage and the MEMBER bar to the top of the ribbon needs a couple of stitches to reattach to the cockade. However, since I am a purist and an advocate of not fixing antiques I will include the smal...

Nice signals officer visor cap with lemon yellow piping. Interior is marked Deutsche Wertarbeit with the maker logo showing an officer wearing visor cap in profile. There are a couple of minor nips and a bit of roughness to the finish of the front visor but all in all a good looking cap priced accordingly.

Very nice early style NSKK motorcycle crash helmet. Eagle plate has cool yellow patina that only nickel seems to get. Nice piece of insignia. The helmet itself is complete. Leather is strong but could benefit from leather conditioner but there is no hurry on that and I prefer to let the long term owner do such treatment. One side ear cover does show some scuffing. Liner is size 58 and complete/undamaged. Front tongue is maker marked Hans Sch- . Nice, scarce helmet.

Very cool ashtray from the famous Copacabana nightclub. Very historic nightclub was the place to be in its heydays of the 1940's and 1950's. Endless stories with celebrities and mafia connections. Great piece of history. As with all my stuff I don't clean it to make it look pretty, I just leave it like I find it.

Very nice Kriegsmarine coastal artillery overseas cap. The fabric in the back is a different color from the front. I believe this is an interesting example of a lot that was contracted to a French manufacturer. The French, irritated at being an occupied country, made all the caps in the smallest size possible. Since most of the Germans were not twelve year olds the caps had to be resized. Maker marked B.A.W. with a couple of size markings, the latest of which looks to be 58. Overall good, solid ...
