Terrific silver wound badge by L/11 Wilhelm Deumer. Early high quality silver plated tombac personalized with soldier's name: Kagelmann. So fun to find early personalized items that are obviously real. This was probably awarded for service in 1939 or 1940. Great item for even advanced collections.

What a wonderful item celebrating its 100th anniversary. As the British were approaching Christmas in the first year of the war Princess Mary commissioned these to be made and sent to British soldiers. There were far too many in uniform to all get one so there was a prioritization method. Princess Mary went to great effort to show her appreciation and solidarity to British soldiers in many other ways including visiting the wounded in hospitals...

Ein Kampf um Deutschland 1933. Wow, what a cool and historically significant piece. This is an early 1933 magazine probably put together if not released before the seizure of power as it very closely follows the propaganda of that rise to power where they were instilling fear in the people and presenting themselves as the force that could save them...

Very nice pair of 'swallow's nests' for army musician. Front shows rich silver brocade with army green backing. The reverse has a black backing. Condition is excellent throughout. If one looks very closely at the top the brocade looks a bit raw at the ends but it just wasn't really finished off experlty when it was cut. This is very subtle and not damage as it is clearly consistent throughout both sides and just simply how it was made. Tip to tip each piece is just a hair over 26cm long...

Interesting tinnie showing Potsdam Garrison Church with the dates March 21 1933 and March 21 1934. This tinnie is commemorating one year in power for the Nazi party. This is actually a scarce tinnie showing the same dates and motif as the 5 Reichsmark coin. Nice, early and significant tinnie.

Very nice SA tinnie. This was for a sports event for SA Gruppe Hochland in 1938. Good design with a sword resting on an oak leaf wreath very reminiscent of the SA sports award. Maker marked RZM M9/3 LAUER NUREMBERG. It is interesting that 1937 and 1938 are when we see transitional daggers as well with both RZM code and maker name.

Nice DAF tinnie for a 1934 even in W├╝rttemberg Hohenzollern. I believe this 16 day event was roughly equivalent to a job fair. Early in the new regime employment was a major concern as mass unemployment was a leading downfall in public acceptance of the Wiemar government. Of course it was not long at all before rearmament became the wonder drug for unemployment. Followed of course by employment with the armed services. Interesting how sometimes problems are just replaced by bigger problems...

Nice brass Prussian belt buckle with leather tab. Tab is well worn but still strong. Buckle shows good detail and excellent condition. Polished somewhere along the way but still very nice.

Absolutely terrific colonial American corkscrew. Business end is very magnetic hand forged iron. In general design it is crude but it has some very attractive ridges and rings and a nice central bulge which is very nicely beveled. Certainly made by a blacksmith with some skill. The handle is hollowed bone with some groove work on the sides and to a lesser degree in the center. A minor degree of chipping on the edges but nothing disfiguring or even unexpected in a piece with this age...

Very cool door sign from an airfield commander's office door in a German used French airfield. This was a vet pickup from Wilmington Delaware. Reads 'FLIEGERDIVISIONS KOMMANDEUR'. In this business we never buy the story but regardless this is a very cool sign with all the age it should have and is very well done with German style lettering. This came with a Fliegerkarte also recently listed and I do have confidence in the story...

Very nice M98/05 butcher blade bayonet. Early model dated 1912. Handle marked W.W. 7081. W.W. stands for Werft Wilhelmshave indicating it was a naval bayonet issued from the Wilhelmshave depot. The number on the other side of the handle is 6295. The scabbard ball is numbered 4742 indicating that, as usual, the scabbard has been swapped around. Maker marked V.C. SCHILLING SUHL. Condition is excellent throughout as per images.

Very cool photograph of a truck carrying SS members on parade. Early SA style uniforms with skulls on the cap I would assume to then be LAH members. The truck itself has a banner with the national emblem and SS runes. Also interesting is that just behind the truck in the parade the HJ/DJ boys have to walk. In the background beside the truck is a band with the same SA/SS/LAH uniforms...

Interesting old cue stick trimmer. Basically this is meant to square off a cue stick if a new tip is being put on. Good shape and would probably work just fine if the blade is sharpened a bit. Sort of works like a giant pencil sharpener but with the blade positioned to flatten instead of sharpen. A little over 5 inches total length. Cool billiard related antique to have sitting around the pool room for conversation purposes. I think this dates to right around 1900.
