Attractive plaque featuring a large version of the Imperial Sea Pilot badge. Below this large rendering of the badge is a plate reading: Dem Flgmster (Fliegermeister) Hess fur besondere Verdienste 30 January 1918. This basically translates to "The Flying Champion/Master Hess for special service January 30 1918. Both badge enlargement and plate are mounted on a dark stained wood base...

Very impressive document and award grouping from a particularly athletic BDM girl who developed into a BDM leader. Elfreid Hardt was born March 24 1919, just four months after WWI Armistice. The attached images are organized and presented in an order to show both the sequence of Ms. Hardt's athletic career as well as they development of athletics within the Third Reich leading up to and during the war. Image 1: The entire document and award lot as well as her wood exercise tools...

Very tastefully executed katana tsuba showing a Dragon in the Clouds motif. Attractive dragon with very fine detail contrasts very nicely with the plain surface of the majority of the tsuba. The front shows the dragon's head, one leg and tail. The reverse shows just one small body segment and about an inch away from that just two toes, supporting the idea the sometimes less is more...

Very cool document with signatures from both Benito Mussolini and Victor Emmanuel III who of course was the King of Italy before and during the war. The letterhead to the document also adds the title IMPERATORE D'ETIOPIA as the Italians were very proud of this conquest as they began to flex their muscles in the colonial arena. Another point of interest are the stamps on the reverse. Both include the year date 1938 but the Fascists also started counting years again from the March On Rome...

Very attractive WWII 7x50 Japanese binoculars. On each side there is a section of missing leatherette cover (See final attached image). Other then that a very good looking set. The right lens section does have the radical grid visible when in use. Both sides look clear but one side does show a yellow tint when one looks through backwards...

Very nice 40 year faithful service for civil service. Condition is excellent throughout. One side of the pin has a popped stitch. This is an easy fix if someone wants to do it but medal displays well as is. Nice example.

Attractive American M1912 officer's cap. Nice clean cap with with good shape and a nice, period used look. Beside the wearer's left ear is a stretch of about 3 inches where the stitching is missing along the sweatband. This is not noticeable unless pulled at because the cap keeps its shape very crisply (Image 7). The maker logo in the silk lining is blurred and not readable (Image 4). Also, from left to right along the lining and just under the logo is some separation from solid use (Image 5)...

Very nice SA dagger by RZM M7/42 which corresponds to the WKC firm. Because it is such perfect eye candy I will first mention the hanger. This is a gorgeous three piece vertical hanger. The clip is marked M5/71 with the OLC logo (Overhoff and Cie). The leather on this piece is marked RZM L2/338/41 and is just about perfect. As might be expected, the second leather piece which snaps onto the dagger handle shows more usage wear but is still soft and healthy with no weak spots...

Interesting factory tied white and blue cap eagles for the summer on-board cap. There are four separate patches here so it is very possible some were removed over the years. Nice and clean.

First Class Eastern People award in silver with original hinged award box. Both the medal and the impressed likeness on the top of the box are the variant without swords which are a good bit scarcer then the combatant version with swords. Condition is solid throughout as per images and the silver wash on the obverse of the medal remains solid. The back of the hinged pin is hallmarked 100 for the firm Rudolf Wachtler, Mittweida. Nice, hard to find cased medal.

Absolutely gorgeous stickpin for the 1939 Spange and 1914 Iron Cross First Class. This is a rare enough stickpin but this is the best example I've encountered. Large size with the cross and spange measuring a hair over 2.6cm. With the pin it measures just short of 6cm. If not silver it is a high quality nickel silver with superb beading and crispness to the smallest details. To ice a fabulous stickpin the profile of the Iron Cross shows a lovely convex curve. This was made for a guy who had a ve...

Very nice RADwj pennant. Unstretched it is 115cm high not including the loops and a bit over 200cm in edge length. I find no holes beyond the signs of typical use at the very tip which can be seen in image 4. Also on this fourth image can be seen the reinforcing stitching typical of period pieces. The only stain I find is along the bottom edge and can be seen in image 5. On the red field this stain is very hard to see. Otherwise the flag is top condition with nice, bright colors and the white ce...

Terrific, untouched NSDAP Political Officer uniform including service tunic and riding style breeches. Blue piping on tunic indicates Ortsgruppe level and the four pips indicate rank of Gemeinschaftsleiter. Size below the back collar is 49. Inside interior pocket can be found the correct RZM label for "DIENSTROCK W fur Politische Leiter". The medals attached include 1935 Arbeit and 1936 Mai tinnies, black wound badge, enamel party pin and a numbered silver wound badge. All are original and were ...

Very cool set out of the woodwork. Excellent NSDAP Political Officer belt buckle backmarked RZM M4/27 for the firm Overhoff and Cie. The leather on the belt is crisp and clean with a remnant of the paper label on the reverse. Just beside the tongue is penciled in the owner's name but not clearly enough for me to venture a guess. Tongue is size marked 90. Leather is also RZM marked towards the keeper end. While the belt is an excellent example the real interesting part here is the attached holste...

Terrific NSDAP standard bearer gorget. The front plate is undamaged and the patina looks to me as though it has never been cleaned. On the reverse the original green felt is complete and shows one TINY moth nip on the back (See images). The chain is a real treat as it is complete with the correct 31 links and the patina is even throughout indicating that this chain has most likely been together since the war. Further, the reverse of the plate is marked M1/102 as well as the end link on both side...

Super cool Sanke WWI postcard features 12 different Blue Max award winners. These Sanke postcards are very sought after which makes sense because they all look great. The bottom left corner does have a small crease but this becomes understandable when we flip it over and see that is was mailed to a feldpost in July 1917 and was fully used. Earlier postcard includes Boelcke and Immelmann but does not yet show Richthofen in the top group. Postcard is really beyond cool.

Fabulous reference book covering just about every uniform from Fascist Italy during the war, starting with the 1926 Fascist March On Rome. Shocking number of color plates showing military, political, youth, female auxiliary and on and on. Catalog excerpts, detailed text, innumerable photographs and well over 100 color examples of uniforms in wear as well as page after page of various insignia, some of which are quite obscure. This is a fabulous book for anyone interested in WWII Italian uniforms...
