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. Orig...

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. These decals are not r...

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. This type of guy was usually the early ...

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...

Very nice WWII Purple Heart medal with extras as shows. The ribbon bar has a plastic cover. the good conduct medal and ribbon bar came with so will go with. The pin is from a private company the veteran must have worked for. Again, it was with the group so it stays with the group. Nice little set from a veteran estate in Wilmington Delaware.

Very nice Krim shield. Prestigious combat award worn on upper sleeve for veterans of this campaign meeting certain criteria. Increasingly harder to find good examples.

Nice informative book on the classic Me109 fighter. Lots of good text suitable for beginner or experienced historians. While it was eclipsed during the war by other fighters the 109 probably remains the most iconic single engine aircraft of the war. Used condition with worn dust jacket.

Very nice little Imperial album sized for postcards. The cover is nice and clean but is made of a sort of corrugated craft paper so there is some edge wear. Really in great condition for not being real solidly built. There are 25 pages which can hold one card front and back. The last two attached images show the damaged pages that I was able to find. A nice little album.

EM NCO breast eagle with a great look. Some stitching thread remains along the border. The patch itself is in fine shape except for one tiny pull on the eagle's left wing (Viewer's right) which is very minor and can be seen in the first attached image. I love these tunic removed pieces and will take this any day over a factory roll example. Great front line look.

Very nice set of Russian navy dagger hangers. I do believe these are WWII. If they are later it is not by much and I have these priced low regardless. Condition is terrific with gold wash on all metal fittings showing the most minimal of aging. Fittings are the same on both except for the swivel hook correctly present on the smaller strap. The buckles, modeled very closely on their German counterparts have anchors instead of lions (Who ever saw a lion swimming anyway?). The fabdric straps are a ...

Nice naval stickpin. Nicely detailed life preserver with a red cockade in the center. An gold washed anchor is hanging from this with the whole rig mounted on a stickpin. I think this looks German but maybe wrong (Please let me know). Nicely detailed nautical piece.
