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.

Nice porcelain candy dish with a portrait of Hindenburg in uniform with medals. The banner reads Gen.-Feldmarschall von Hindenburg over an iron cross. Surrounding is a stand of arms with Prussian flags, rifles, cannon etc. There is a hairline crack across the lid but still a good looking piece for an Imperial display. Bottom is maker marked "ROYAL RUDOLSTADT Prussia" around a brown and B in shield.

Very interesting horse artillery officer saber by Horstmann and Sons Philadelphia. The blade is deeply patinated and the engraving is difficult to bring out in photographs. Besides the blade the whole package is brass. The scabbard is all brass as well as the handle. Even the grip which at first glance looks like textured fish skin is in fact brass. The Horstmann name is engraved as well as tool punched in. As one might imagine, the large brass content makes this a heavy sword. All in all a fasc...

Interesting bag for care packages to be sent to Japanese soldiers. Not many of these survived so this is a rather uncommon item. About 13.5 x 7.5 inches. Nice graphics with a rising sun flag and a hinomaru flag. Some age wear as per attached images but still a good looking display piece.

Top notch First Class Iron Cross by L/10. This maker mark corresponds to Deschler & Sohn. Deschler was an old and highly respected firm which, when not using the LDO series number, was simply number 1. This cross is in top notch condition as per images and the case is just about stone cold mint. Really a super example that would fit into even very advanced collections. Great EK1.

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.

Miniature second model Luftwaffe Dagger by SMF. Lightly sharpened which is common on these as owners really did like to use them as letter openers. Crisply marked SMF Solingen with logo and marked DRGM. Scabbard shows its age but undamaged. Nice hard to find and scarce mini dagger.

Very nice Social Welfare leader dagger. The only difference with Red Cross leader dagger is the circular holes for the hangers. The only negative is a hairline crack in the grip. There is no wobble at the point of the crack and no missing material. The crack is also old enough to have age darkened (See images). Some very minor spotting to the blade and only a couple of tiny rubs to the finish of the scabbard. Blade is nice and bright with no sharpening. Some gentle spotting as per images. Overal...

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 ...

It makes me feel old to call 1980's vintage but I think it works with this one which just off the chart on the Richter Scale of coolness. The jacket is typical 80's Levi and the entire thing is covered in superb artwork, patches and pins. Just as proof that our man here was well rounded the right sleeve has a long Metallica patch and the left side of the back has three smaller patches. Everything else is all K.I.S.S. and the hand done portrait work on the back is fabulous (Image 2). There are mu...
