Very nice original single panzer officer collar tab. Honest, worn example tunic removed with stitching holes still visible. A bit of mothing to the reverse but still good looking.

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.

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...

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.

Very interesting dagger for East German Air Force general. Unissued and in original case. Comes with appropriate hangers and belt loop. East and West Germany were the respective countries used as front line proxy forces between the United States and Soviet Union during the Cold War. Really a neat piece from an important time in history.

This is a terrific out-of-the-woodwork piece. Luftschutz NSDAP armband with three stickpins inserted. These have clearly been together and very possible all came from the same individual in 1945. The NSFK stickpin is a terrific numbered Forderer example by Gustav Brehmer. A Forderer was a donating member to the NSFK organization. RLB stickpin is by Hermann Aurich. the SA stickpin is backmarked RZM 24. Just a great personality type grouping.

This is a hard to find odd piece of insignia; Black piped Haupstellenleiter collar tab. The black piping makes this either 2nd or 3rd pattern (1934-1936 and 1936-1938 respectively). In the fourth pattern, of which the vast majority of such insignia belongs, the black piping became the white piping that we are used to seeing on Kreis level insignia. Condition is top notch.
