Very nice Gau level political collar tab for the rank Haupt-Eisatzleiter. Nicely sunk in insignia and god look throughout with typical signs of gentle age wear. One rub on the red trim to the bottom right. Good looking tab for a relatively high rank.

Interesting viking ship tinnie. Ceramic tinnie which I believe is HJ or DJ related as I have seen this before with a sigrune on the sail. Cool tinnie celebrating Nordic heritage.

Cool tinnie for Tag Der Deutschen Polezei or "Day for German Police". Have not seen this one before and I do enjoy weird tinnies. Should fit nicely into just about any tinnie collection.

Kabar (Or KA-BAR) fighting knife with terrific overall look. Condition throughout shows gentle period wear consistent with theater used examples but no damage or mistreatment. The grip was a small crack on the section just before the pommel. This is unfortunately a common occurrence with these knives but there is no wiggle and not overly distracting. Blade is marked KA-BAR on one side and USN on the other. The scabbard is a nice, soft brown leather which is healthy a pliant. Just under the throa...

Great looking cloth Luftwaffe pilot badge. Nicely toned and no damage; A very solid example throughout. Such cloth badges were officially discontinued in 1942 but were popular with flight crew and remained in use for the duration of the war.

Good looking DJ member's enamel pin. Very nice looking pin with pleasant age toning and quality enamel work. While the pin is there the small catch has broken off. If you need a good looking example to tack onto a DJ display shirt at half price here you go.

Places and dates engraved on the top are N AFRICA 1943-1943, SICILY 1943, EUROPE 1944-45, KOREA 1950-1952. The two DI insignia attached are from the 70th Armor Regiment and the 1st Cavalry Division.

Historically important binoculars from LZ127 which was the airship Graf Zeppelin. Power marking is 8x25 and the L.Z.127 markings are an exact match to the power markings. Absolutely real, authentic memento from the most famous airship ever to not explode in New Jersey. Shows significant wear as per images and most of the leather covering is gone to time. The optics look clear enough but the focus dial on one side does not turn. I am not a big binocular guy so I don't know why. There is a maker n...

Absolutely gorgeous Second Division Engineer WWI Helmet. Most importantly one that nobody could possibly look at and question. Complete with liner and chinstrap this is out of my collection. The 2nd Division was an important unit that was put together specifically for WWI and included the 5th and 6th Marine Regiments and was twice commanded my marine Corps generals. This is the only time in our history that Marine Corps generals commanded Army divisions. The division was absolutely in the middle...

Minty finish on this tinnie; German NSDAP Gautag Wurttemburg-Hohenzollern Stuttgart June 4-6, 1937. Maker marked on reverse FR. ZIMMERMANN STUTTGART. This is a rather uncommon tinnie but most importantly, the finish is as close to mint as one could hope for with a buttery smooth feel. The material is a sort of brush finished aluminum that doesn't hold up well to age wear and if comparison pricing the few other examples found will be well worn. Really a nice, uncommon tinnie in perfect shape that...

Very cool variant of the famous Saar tinnie which I have never seen before. The Saar, of course, was an industrialized region of Germany occupied by order of the Versailles Treaty. The Germans were increasingly resentful of this occupation. This tinnie shows smoke stacks shrouded by exhaust clouds which become hands with fingers raised if looked at correctly. These hands/smokestacks are bound in chains. Backmarked GLASER & SOHN DRESDEN. Solid, heavy metal construction much better made then typic...

I have seen this one before but certainly not very often. Ceramic pilot tinnie measuring about 4.5cm. Pin shows some oxidation but is complete. The paint is perfect. Really cool addition to any tinnie collection.

Very cool Infantry Assault Badge document to a man in the 315 Infantry Regiment. Awarded "In the field" November 13 1941, very early in the Russian campaign and the beginning of that famously miserable first winter. In fact, things were already so tough that the "I" key on the typewriter was broken. "Im Felde..." has become "Jm Felde" and the unit is given as "...Jnf.Rgt.315". Interesting bit of personality. Nice clean document with nice stamp also from the 315th.

Fascinating pressed paper tinnie. Tag der Nationalen Solidaritat d.Dez. 1936 Neuland-Halle - Adolf Hitler Koog. This is the only tinnie I ever recall having pertaining to a building (Which is shown on the tinnie). Apparently this was a community center house which was turn into a learning center for National Socialism history. Some very basic research shows that this building is currently a hot topic as they are trying to figure out what to do with it and its history. Paper tinnies are hard to f...

Extremely interesting tinnie from the 1933 Volksdeutsche Opferwoche (Or Ethnic German Victims Week). The Volksdeiutsche were ethnic Germans who found themselves living in areas that were part of the German Reich mostly before WWI. While many may have been discriminated against in their new countries pre-WWII Germany used them and a greatly inflated image of their suffering to help point out the wrongs of the Versailles Treaty. This strategy was the driving force behind Chamberlain giving the Sud...
