This is a top nothc, unpublished Hitler photo with real historical significance. This is from a grouping from Gauleiter Adolf Scheel and is subsequently backmarked from the office of the Salzburg Gauleiter. The photo is dated April 29 1942 which coincides with a meeting with Benito Mussolini. The photo shows a group of nine German big-wigs at the train tracks presumably waiting for Mussolini. The mountains can be seen in the background...

Terrific photo of an early party parade rally. The focal point of the photo is a truck full of SS men in very early SA style uniforms passing a band in similar uniforms. SS insignia are clear on the coffee can hats. The truck itself has a large side banner with national flag and SS runes and reads SS Motorsturm I/21 (The last numbers are not clear but I this is the closest approximation I can give). The reverse has the photographer stamp Brillen-Schmidt Magdeburg Breitweg 56...

This SS marked ordnance sword by Carl Eickhorn is a special item and has been in my collection for a good number of years. There is little doubt that the SS/I markings are original to the sword. The obvious assumption that the "I" would indicate Leibstandarte A.H. is supported by the very limited number of "armed" SS units at the time these ordnance swords were in use...

WWI USN dog tag. It is on what appears to be the original chain which is, unfortunately broken. Obverse includes name, Frank Brody as well as what I assume are his birthdate and maybe date of entry to the Navy: 9-1-97 and 6-18-18. USNRF was the US Naval Reserve Force. The reverse shows Frank's thumbprint. Nice piece of WWI history.

Lovely Imperial German four place stickpin. The first medal is a nice enamel 1914 iron cross but the prize in the row is the second medal which is a lovely Bavarian merit cross with very fine detail and nice blue enamel arms. The row is finished by a Hindenburg Cross and a black wound badge. Very nice lapel pin intended for wear by the recipient of these medals while in civilian clothes.

GIL membership badge. The GIL was the Italian fascist equivalent to the Hitler Youth. This piece is termed a badge but is not too large with a height of 2.5cm. This was to be worn when the member was in civilian clothes. Nice red enamel on the lower half with orange on the top. Condition is perfect. Very well marked on the reverse, including patent information. Interesting pin.

Very nice WWI camouflage M16 helmet. Gentler camo pattern then found on most German helmets but a very nice and very undoubtable overall package. Some paint loss due to age and wear and a rub here and there but a great overall look. The liner is complete with pads except for damage to one of the six tongues tongues (Image 5) and small chips to two others. The manufacturer mark looks like TJ 66 for C. Thiel & Soehne, Luebeck...

Nice looking Kriegsmarine flag with signautres and hometowns of the American soldier's friends. 10 names with hometowns all over the United States. Overall condition is decent. There are no holes but their are light stains here and there. It looks like maybe something was spilled on it when it was folded but the stains are relatively light. I did make sure the stains show in the attached images...

Terrific quality GIL leader dagger. GIL was the Fascist youth movement and basically equivalent to the Hitler Youth. This dagger also includes the extremely hard to find leather hanger. These hangers were not particularly well made and the leather used is a bit flimsy so few have survived the decades. This set looks to have been together for the duration...

Terrific example by A C Co which is far scarcer then LF&C. This M1917 trench knife (Also known as The Knuckle Duster) has a nice, smooth, unsharpened triangular blade. The knuckle guard is clean as a whistle and backmarked A.C.Co. USA 1917. The grip shows a nice, healthy wood mostly free of damage except for 5 notches that look intentionally placed...

Very nice set of 16 color prints that would look great framed in the Man Cave. Except for one showing a signals unit hanging communication wire they are all combat related. Tropical to winter, infantry, tanks, artillery, assault boats, flamethrowers, grenades, machine guns etc. Basically anything heer related. The paper is overall crisp and clean but a few have small folded over corners from previous owners being careless when closing the envelope. This is not bad at all even on the worst and wo...

Terrific tropical army cap eagle insignia. The left cut of the factory roll is at a bit of an angle (Not a point of concern) so the overall length is between 8 and 8.5cm and 3.5cm high. Eagle's wingspan is 7cm. Eagle is machine woven with correct blue-grey thread. Nice, original, textbook example of a hard to find patch.

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.

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). The black paint on th...

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.
