Excellent Werkfeuerwehr sleeve eagle. This was the industrial fire brigades. As American bombing successfully focused on German manufacturing these fire police in particular were very busy and had an extremely important job if production of military goods was to continue. Very cool patch.

This is a 1944 dated map from the U.S. Army map service. The area is Fountainebleau which is a bit southeast of Paris. The interesting point is that it looks like it was combat used. There are a few different infantry and armored units penciled in. In the northeast corner of the map there is an armored unit with an arrow indicating the line of advance but a ? mark indicating they weren't sure of the unit's identity when the situation was being reviewed...

Nice Camillus fighting knife. Very nice condition as per photos. Blade marked US Camillus. The scabbard has a pressed in rendition of "SUE" who is clearly not the artist's mother. Nice knife throughout with a little bit of character.

This is an interesting button hole pin reading "zur erinnerung an 1870" and a Maltese or Iron Cross in the center. I have actually seen a lot of fake enamel examples of this pin but didn't know there really was such a thing. This war was a rather quick French thumping. This is a painted example and I have included obverse photos both with and without flash to show the most detail possible. Cool item very reminiscent of later Third Reich membership pins.

Neat stickpin with a bubble containing real, natural gold flakes. Probably not enough there to retire on but it is a good conversation piece for sure. I do not believe the pin outside of the bubble is gold.

Luftwaffe dagger with hangers and knot for the budget minded buyer. The unmarked blade is in good condition with some minor spotting as per photos. Original washer is present. Grip is a nice dark pumpkin orange with no cracks. The knot is present but is in tough shape as in photos. The scabbard has no dents but is well worn. The hangers are the deluxe type with oak leaves on all metal fittings and the clips are all DRGM marked. The straps are original, but again, well worn as per photos...

Very nice set. Nice size two gas mask with lens dated 1939 in great shape with healthy rubber. Cannister is likewise in great shape with three lenses in that compartment. Canister also has an apparently full set of straps including shoulder strap and the belt support hook which is rarely found. Filter has the name Mullner which is different the the name on the mask strap which is illegible due to blotted ink...

Very nice example of the 1914-1915 Great War medal. Japan's involvement in WWI was minimal, amounting to taking an island colony from Germany, so this is a not too common medal. Nice example in perfect shape except for pinhole in the ribbon that looks to have been caused by the rear attachment end rubbing the back of the ribbon. Really a nice looking medal. The recipient's name is on the rear of the box. We believe the family name is Hirokawa but can't make out the rest. Very nice medal.

Great example of a walnut based P08 Luger magazine. Has the Erfurt Arsenal stamp but it a rare example of an unnumbered magazine. These are very desirable as they are sort of the O-type universal donor of Luger magazines. When one is missing a magazine for a numbered Luger this is the easy answer.

This is a lovely Belgian Cavalry saber. German blade makers were very popular with many different countries at the time and this was most certainly a private purchase. The size is very comparable to the U.S. model 1860 cavalry saber so I would date this right around the mid 19th century. The blade is engraved POUR LE ROI - ET LA PATRIE, French for "For King and Homeland". The lion rampant shown on both the blade engraving and the handle indicate this is Belgian...

Very nice early 1847 pattern Prussian Belt and buckle. This pattern was used through 1895. Attached sixth image shows the reverse with solder points. The buckle is quite attached to the leather so I decided not to remove it for photos. Rare to find with the proper leather belt. There is one scrunched edge on the leather as well as a small square from an old price sticker. Very nice, early belt.

Very interesting WWII Ostland Eisen revenue trade chits. These were used in Germany as well as eastern occupied areas such as Russia, Poland, Western Ukraine and were used as an exchange chit for trading agricultural goods for steel or iron. I do not know the particular details but that is the gist. There a couple of different watermarks and one that was glued on something along the way. They look to be very nonchalantly cut but the basic size is 4x6cm. Very cool looking and interesting pieces.

Very nice RAD belt buckle with leather tab. The front of this aluminum buckle is superb with high relief and virtually no wear. The reverse is nicelt marked with the Assmann A on one side of the shovel and 37 on the other side. The leather tab is correctly marked F.W. ASSMANN & SOHNE LUDENSCHEID and dated 1937. The tab does show some age wear but is in generally nice condition with no real damage and nice clear maker mark. Very nice buckle.
