Very nicely done .999 silver memorial medal for Admiral Karl Donitz. Donitz passed away in 1980 and this medal was produced in 1981. The reverse of the medal commemorates the U-boat war specifically. The medal has not been removed from its wrapping but does have some toning to the bottom left obverse. Also comes with a 20 page autobiographical booklet on Donitz as well as a numbered certificate of authenticity. This COA is numbered 982.

Terrific 1/2 sized miniature army dagger by Eickhorn. Nice white handle variant. Eickhorn did use white handles on some daggers later in the war so it is interesting to see it in miniature as well. The miniature knot is also a pleasant addition.

Nice original unpublished photo of Hermann Goring. He is walking with a mix of guys including some higher ranking SS fellows. I find this photo amusing due to the guys to the left of the pillar. They look like the guys in the movies that are trying not to look Gestapo but couldn't really be anything else with overcoats, fedoras and shifty body language.

Very nicely made enamel membership pin for KDF (Kraft durch Freude) Gau Köln-Aachen. Nicely maker marked on reverse F Hoffstatter Bonn. Kraft durch Freude translates to "Work through joy" and was an NSDAP organization designed to offer state run vacations at low cost to German workers and their families. Run by Dr Ley this was actually one of their better ideas and did make it possible for workers to achieve vacations they otherwise would not be able to afford. Nice pin.

Great looking Croatian volunteer transitional helmet. Nice original finish throughout with honest age to the decals. On the interior I find no manufacturer marks due to the roughness of the skirt but there is a clear stamped 451 on the dome.The chinstrap is lost to time but this is a terrific example of a scarce helmet. This has been in my closet for a long time but I am selling some things I normally wouldn't as I am moving overseas to a much smaller home.

Very nice 2 place ribbon bar. The first is the 10 Year NSDAP Long Service with device. The second, which makes this an interesting combination, is for a DRK (German Red Cross) or Social Welfare. I believe every medal from those organizations has a red center and white edges. Nice odd ribbon bar for the medal collector.

Very cool tinnie for Horst Wessel Tag Bielefeld 1933. Horst Wessel of course was an early SA man of dubious character who became a national hero after he was killed in a street fight with a communist group. Very desirable tinnie.

French RÉQUISITIONS MILITAIRE armband with a great look to it. Plate with this wording being sewn onto khaki armband along with two strips of tress indicating rank. The reverse shows a three prong metal buckle. Gentle age wear and some staining that is minor and does little to detract from the overall look. I believe this would be worn by Quartermaster department personnel or other uniformed personnel as a badge to indicate the appropriate clearance and authority to requisition goods or service...

Excellent Kreisleitung level NSDAP visor cap. Denoted by the white piping, Kreis level is mid-range in hierarchy with blue Orts level piping being lower and far more common. Condition-wise this one is a winner. The shell is a nicely pronounced whipcord fabric with no holes or stains that would show on a photograph; Clean as a whistle. The brown velvet band which is a piece that often attracts moth nipping is also perfect being clean and with a nice healthy pile to the fabric...

Nice leather belt for WWII German military buckle. Overall length is 97cm including the O&C (Overhoff and Cie) marked keeper. Belt is marked L39 Dopperf-Kitzingen 11/38. Has been resized by resewing the inner tab about six inches closer to the buckle. Probably another guy losing too much weight at the end of the war.

Pre WWI Prussian belt and buckle. High quality brass buckle with nickel silver center disk is in excellent condition but with a small impression on the right side of the crown. The leather belt has been clipped on the buckle end and measures 79cm. The keeper is in place and also brass construction. Some condition issues but priced right.

Excellent Luftwaffe belt and buckle rig. Buckle is a solid example with a bit of smoothing to the raised center eagle. The Size 95 belt is a top notch example with soft and supple leather. The end is marked L.B.A.(S) which is a standard Luftwaffe marking. Below this it is also nicely maker marked Henseler & Co ULM 1936.

Very nice belt and buckle rig. Buckle is Rodo marked with good paint remaining. Leather is healthy and supple but has been skilfully trimmed down to about a size 86, probably as the guy was in some cut off pocket at the end of the war dreaming of sausages as he lost pound after pound. Nice combat setup.

Classic revised edition 1981 hardcover reference book Japanese Swordsmiths by W. M. Hawley is a staple for collectors and not often found offered for sale at a reasonable price.

A used example in reasonable condition but pages are clean and bright throughout. Priced accordingly.

Very nice dress bayonet made by WKC. Blade is a perfect step down type and both handle and grip are in equally pristine condition. The scabbard shows typical light crazing to the paint which we do like to see in original finishes. Brown Luftwaffe leather frog also remains in fine condition and shows only gentle signs of age wear. The bayonet troddel with this blue-yellow-blue color code indicates it was used by the 12th company or battery of its respective regiment...
