Gorgeous Imperial German 1914 Iron Cross First Class. Jeweler quality with a nice convex vaulted shape. The center of the reverse is marked 900 silver and the patina throughout certainly backs this up. Lovely untouched cross with a great look would fit well into advanced collections.

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...

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.

Excellent example of a cool medal that has become scarce and hard to find. This famous medal was awarded to introduced early in 1942 to commemorate the successes of Rommel's Afrika Korps. This is early when the numbers involved were few. After the Italian capitulation wear of the medal was forbidden which further adds to its scarcity...

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...

Good looking signed Japanese soldier's Hinomaru (Meatball) flag. Nice, clean example with many entries in many different handwritings. One small hole in the red disc, a few stains and the corner tabs are a bit loose but all in all an attractive, well signed WWII flag. Would look great in almost any display.

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.

SS Police NCO sword in excellent condition throughout. The SS rune pommel cap retains solid blackening. One very important concern on such a sword is that the SS pommel cap have a good fit with no weird spaces, scrapes, odd angles or patination differences with the rest of the handle (Obviously any of these area point of concern). This one fits nicely and has exact match of patina indicating the sword has been together as a unit...

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.

A nice high quality infantry officer visor cap. There a couple of condition issues which are not terrible disfiguring but certainly considered in the competitive price. The celluloid diamond in the crown has the maker name Extra-Klasse which is an obvious comment on their opinion of the quality of the caps they produced. The lining does seem to be in excellent condition and I find no problems...
