Terrific full tang Samurai arrowhead. Head shows some darkening but no pitting so would polish out quite nicely although it looks fine as is. Full length is 20cm with the head being about 3.4cm. Very thick diamond shaped head would create a wound that would have difficulty healing. I would conservatively put the age at late Edo period but could easily be far older then 19th century. Very nice, hard to find item.

Nice SA medical pouch. Top is marked SA NSDAP. The belt loops on the back are gone to time with accordingly low price. The side straps and catches are present. Hard to find item.

Assmann Luftwaffe belt and buckle set. The buckle has a most of its original finish with slight wear to the edges and raised points (The usual spots). The black leather tab is in great shape and marked with the Assmann & Sohne logo. Below this is the date which is covered by stitching but probably reads 1940. The leather belt is unit marked "Bekl.L-Lg XIII". No idea what this stands for. Under the tab at the hook end is a Frankfurt maker logo and 1938 date (See last photo)...

Very cool SS camo rank insignia. These camouflage rank insignia were meant to be worn on the sleeve of a variety of combat camo uniforms that would not normally show rank insignia. The Waffen SS made great strides in the development of camouflage combat techniques and this is a good example of this development. Nice item.

Terrific, real example of a hard to find insignia. Removed from a cap somewhere along the way and still has many stitches remaining. Great item.

Interesting set of two Romanian WWII medals. The first is for the anti-communist crusade they were forced to join in 1941. The second is from when the first crusade failed and they were again forced to join the war against Germany. The pair makes for an interesting conversation point.

Very nice bronze infantry assault badge by MK1. Nice rich bronze finish. Maker marked MK1 just under the ball hinge. Bronze badges, of course, were given to panzer grenadiers and motorized infantry thus tending to be with more elite units and were common in the Waffen SS as these units tended to be armor heavy.

Superb gold washed aluminum Reichsbahn officer belt buckle. Backmarked Assmann DRGM 40 for Assmann 1940. Gilt finish has a rub to one wing and one part of the outer wreath. It is a lot less obvious then in the photos as I jacked up the contrast to make it more obvious. Very nice buckle.

Two very nice private, unpublished photos of Luftwaffe General Kurt Student. These must have been taken just after the 1940 western campaigns as he has been awarded the Knights Cross but not yet promoted past Generalmajor. Student was a WWI fighter pilot and by WWII had become the father of the German paratroop forces...

Gorgeous enamel work on this Westmark party pin for the Alsace Loraine area. Backmarked W. REDO SAARLAUTERN. Good maker making a high quality enamel pin resulting in flawless fish scale red enamel. This level of quality yields a front surface on which one's finger can find no edges between black, white and red fields; Just buttery smooth. Unbeatable example.

Very cool uncut roll of Japanese 2nd Class Private collar insignia. This is one of my Tokyo flea market finds. On the outside layer there are five sets of two tabs. I counted 47 layers, give or take a few because it is a tight roll and not easy to count. The layers get smaller towards the middle but there should be somewhere around 175 pairs so I am pricing at one dollar per pair. Fun to find unused gear out if the woodwork.

Very nice enamel cross for a veterans' organization member's 25 years of service. Really very nice enamel work. This is a good sized medal shown with a penny for size comparison. Just 2 or 3 mm shorter wingspan then a 1939 iron cross.

Unfortunately this Imperial German marksmanship lanyard is missing some pieces but is priced very well. The plate is missing from the top. As it was a higher award there were three shells hanging from the bottom but two have been unscrewed and lost. What a lanyard this was once. Braided cord has the German red white and black colors woven throughout. But I am sure someone out there has the plate and needs the fabric.

Second of two post war signed photographs of Hajo Hermann shown with the Fat Reichsmarshall. Herrmann was an interesting personality on many levels. His main dedication during the war was to fight the allied bombers killing German civilians. His main focus was on British bombers intentionally targeting civilians and cities in night raids...
