Nice 1st Class Iron Cross by 26. This indicates the maker B.H. Mayer. Does show a healthy patina from age and wear. I think it looks great as is but certainly could be cleaned up by someone who prefers. I like crosses in this condition that show the halo on the outer edge of the core along the silver beading. I don't believe this can be reproduced and is something I always like to see. Cross gently convex in shape. Nice, honest example.

Nice little German bicycle club. Central emblem shows a bicycle over the black white ad red national colors, below which reads ALL HEIL. Nice gilt oak leaf wreath around the bicycle. The back piece is a large ribbon with oak leaves and acorns. The silver wash on this back ribbon is well worn but all in all an interesting and attractive pin. Construction typical of 1920's to early 1930's.

Interesting Japanese collar insignia. It took me a while to figure out exactly what this was but finally found it in my Nakata book. Of course I am not sure if my translation is perfectly accurate but it seems to be collar insignia for cadets at officer training school and would go along with the usual rectangular rank insignia with stripes and stars. I was not able to find any similar examples offered for sale. Nice bullion wreath with metal star affixed in center. Apparently a scarce item.

Very scarce Group Six Assaulting Battalions Medal. This was some campaign in East Africa and the same instance from which the more famous Montagna Cross arose. Fascist medal made in 1935 and designed by Costantino Affer. Obverse is Mussolini giving his Roman salute. Around him are the battalion names. The reverse shows two gladii over a fasces. In the center is the place names where these battalions particularly distinguished themselves in battle. Unfortunately this is the incorrect ribbon...

Very nice set of three Inuit ivory figural carvings. Older pieces with some of the dark lines that ivory grain often shows over the years. These were probably mounted on something at one time as there are holes in the fellows' feet. The tallest is 5.5cm. Nice little grouping.

Very nice 1st Class Iron Cross. Screw back variant. The back piece is marked AT ad 88. 88 would be the maker Werner Redo, Saarlautern. I do not know what AT references. Very nice variant iron cross.

Terrific photograph of two German soldiers on a Soviet KV-1 Heavy Tank. I see no damage on the tank so I would assume it was "captured" and out "knocked out". These were the first Soviet heavies the Germans encountered. While the main gun was low velocity the frontal armor was very thick and many German armor and anti-tank troops had the unpleasant surprise of watching their hits bounce off...

Very cool pair of Marx Toys helmets. These are doughboy style but WWII vintage. These are red and I think there is a silver version also. Terrific condition when one looks at what is usually offered for sale. These were toys in every sense of the word and after spending years battling in neighborhood backyards the condition usually suffers significantly. These have good shape and excellent remaining paint. The first one shown in detail is complete with a nice strong decal...

Very nice WWII cap edelweiss for mountain troops. Maker marked GB 41 for Gustav Brehmer 1941. WWII insignia should have a straight stem and five sewing holes. Post war Bundeswehr examples have a hooked ending on the stem and I believe four sewing holes. Nice example of a hat device that is not too easy to find anymore.

Bulgarian steel combat helmet with a good front line look but still in nice, clean condition. Very nice liner but end of chinstrap is broken off. Bulgaria like many of the other smaller eastern Balkan and Baltic countries were swept along with the war. While the fighting men were strong and brave enough they were let down by weak leadership and poorly equipped. When the Germans went through they were swept along on the anti-Communist crusade...

It is a shame that this looks to have had a sloppy repair because it is a nice Infantry Assault Badge with just the prettiest golden bronze finish. I really like these distinctive ball hinges so these Scholze badges are a personal favorite...

Nice Kriegsmarine Soldatenfreund from 1943. The soldatenfreund was a small handbook (About 13x8cm) issued for each year and designed to fit in one's pocket for quick access. There is a first page for the owner's personal information and in the back are pages for a daily log or journal. Before that are 21 pages of period advertisements which are actually very interesting to look through...
