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 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...

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...

Very nice four place ribbon bar. Obviously the value on this piece is the fourth ribbon which is for the NSDAP long service medal. The other three ribbons are 1914 Iron Cross, WWII War Merit and the Hindenburg Cross for WWI veterans. It is fun to theorize on who would have a particular combination of medals. With the 1914 EKII this fellow was probably a solid WWI veteran who apparantly then was an earlier NSDAP member to have gotten the NSDAP long service...

Very nice personalized piece. Four metal clip fittings with watch clip are fixed to an eastern front ribbon. I am assuming the fittings are not silver as I see no hallmarks. The larger clip has very stylized initials that I can't quite make out but the fellow's name is engraved on the back: Hubert s/L Karl. The Eastern Front medal was awarded for the first difficult winter on the Russian Front. These men were very proud of this medal and this fob shows the degree of camaraderie that these men fe...

Nice example of the famous Eastern Front Medal. This medal is a collecting favorite with a strong looking eagle, helmet and grenade. It was given to veterans of the first difficult winter on the Russian Front and was worn by recipients with a great deal of pride. Because one of the criteria that would make a soldier eligible was the loss of a limb to frostbite, combined with the innate cynicism of soldiers in any army, it was nicknamed the "Frozen Flesh Medal". This is a solid example. The ribbo...

This set of three hand made pins is really lovely. These were made to celebrate the victory of WWI. The two smaller pins are made for button holes and show Belgian colors and motif. Belgium, of course, was highly publicized as being victims of aggression for propaganda purposes. The first is actually embroidered with a lion rampant and must have required a lot of work. The button backing reads MODE DE PARIS. The second is painted with a nicely detailed rooster which I think refers to Walloon whi...
