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. Really ...

Very interesting lapel pin of an me110 twin engine fighter. Nice, big thing with a wingspan just a bit over 5cm. Typical German construction. Very nice stickpin that I have not seen before.

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. At ...

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. One side ha...

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. A few blisters, stains and creases but still in solid condition and...

Early style panzer EM breast eagle with great tunic removed look. One chip out of eagle's right wing. A lot of original threading remaining. Nice eagle.

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. The truck and the overall picture have the feel of the early rise-to-power parades which, if all went well, ended...

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.

Very cool tinnie for Tag der Wehrmacht. There are a few standard examples but this tinnie was made for the specific unit Panzer Abwehr Abt. 9 apparently based in Glenhausen. Solid metal tinnie shows an anti-tank gun atop the army eagle as shown on helmet decals. Really an all around cool tinnie that I haven't seen before. A bit of oxidation in the upper right corner.

935 Silver version of the 1935 Saar badge. This was in commemoration of the plebiscite which returned the Saar region to Germany in 1935. Normally a two pieced stamped tinnie type item, this one is solid and marked 935. A high end example no doubt intended for someone important in the hierarchy. I would go so far as to say a unique item.

Very attractive Koro cover with tasteful openwork on copper base. The openwork features a 16 petal Kiku mon paired with an Ume or plum blossom. The two are directly portrayed together at the top so this pairing may have been part of a wedding gift. Nice, high dome gives this a full look. Opening measures out at 75mm from rim edge to rim edge. Overall height is 50mm and overall width is 90mm.

An interesting helmet with some personality. The shell is a typical police shell with 2 sets of vent holes on each side. The green paint is original and there is no coat underneath. The inside is complete and shows its age. Dome pad is in place and no tears to the leather tongues and what looks like the original string is still in place. The chinstrap is also complete but well worn. The outside shows some pings and dings but the overall effect is to present a helmet that very likely saw service ...

Very nice silver medal; The 1870 Medal of Merit for the City of Rome. The only negative is the blob of wax on the ribbon which could certainly be removed by someone properly motivated. The important point is that the original ribbon is present. ROMA is found on the ring attaching the medal to the suspension ring. Very nice medal.
