Nice WWI sawback bayonet, meant for the guy that likes the used look (I do). The sawback is in fine shape but the edge has been heavily sharpened leading to a narrow middle (See photos). These were intended for pioneer use to clear branches etc, but were popular with the men in the trench who needed every edge possible for business. This looks to have been well used during the war. Blade is marked Simson&Co SUHL...

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.

Nice, early SA buckle. Features the high eagle with the head up inside of the ribbed circle. Two piece buckle with reverse showing the soldering points and the scooped semicircular cup. Nice buckle.

Nice pair of black widow Luger grips. Unfortunately someone along the way found the need to carve a "W" on one side. The other side has one small hit (See next to last photo). This is a shame because otherwise these grips are in great shape with no cracking or warping and nice, unworn checking. I hope "W" feels bad for what he did.

Very nice named Purple Heart. I believe Ralph R Reeser was wounded in WWI but this is a later reissue of his medal, probably around WWII. Nice example.

Terrific example of a (Real) black SS trapzoid skull and eagle patch for the M32 field cap. A classic insignia for a very popular cap. Condition is great throughout as per attached images.

Cool tinnie marking 10 years of struggle in Gau Baden. Bavarian Police Sword Blade Engraving. Near perfect condition with nice chocolate bronze finish. Reverse shows original pin. This pin has a little bend in it. While this works fine it could be easily straightened out but I don't do anything that isn't necessary to my items. Nice tinnie.

Engraved Bavarian sword by Eickhorn. I believe this short model (Just over 70cm end to end) is intended for use by police. This is an early Imperial German example with the early back to back squirrel Eickhorn logo. The blade is very nice with no nicks or plating issues and only very minor light spotting here and there due to age. Both sides of the blade are engraved with the Bavarian "In Treue Fest" motto (In true service). Also engraved is the distributor J.M. PAUSCHINGER NURNBERG...

Great looking shoulder board for German Lieutenant General. Very rich gold and silver Russial braid with red backing. One third from the top is a large single pip (About 23mm wide) indicating the rank above General Major. The pip shows gentle age wear and the red backing has one tiny moth nip about 1x2mm (See last image). This is very tiny and does almost nothing in detracting from this great looking shoulder board. If only it could talk. Nice item.

Absolutely smashing prewar Lufthansa badges by C.E. Juncker Berlin SW. The first is the rarely seen civilian radio operator. Terrific condition as per images with nothing more then gentle age wear. The second is the (Somehow) even scarcer 8cm enamel pilot badge also by C.E. Juncker Berlin SW. The blue enamel has no chips ad the badge is in fabulous overall condition with nothing more then very gentle age wear. After the Versailles treaty Germany was denied an armed air force...

Absolutely stunning set. Fascist Italian Brocade officer belt with sword hangers in original box. I believe this rig is for Public Safety Police which is probably one of those innocuous names for a sketchy organization. The buckle itself is a lovely gold gilt example featuring an eagle beneath a crown gripping a fasces and with a nicely rendered enamel House of Savoy crest on his belly...

HG Division panzer collar tab with skull. Exactly like all the others one sees on the internet...except that it is real. The Hermann Goering Division was of course the Reichsmarschall's pet unit; A Luftwaffe armored field division which was lavishly equipped with the finest equipment that could be found. Some moderate age wear that I think just makes it as cool as can be. See photos for condition. Great look all around.
