Very nice 1st Class 1939 Iron Cross. Proper construction for the hallmark 65 which indicates this was made by the firm Klein & Quenzer A.G. Idar Oberstein. The cross itself is in superb condition throughout. The leatherette covered case shows the usual shelf wear as per attached images. The snap works fine but the box is a little tight and needs to be held open. I assume this is from the fabric at the hinge area shrinking a bit. Not a big deal at any rate. Great looking medal.

Very interesting badge. The Hungarian Combat Leadership badge was awarded to officer's who led a unit of up to regiment strength in live combat. This is an award that carried a solid level of prestige. This badge was active from 1922 to 1944 so obviously most were awarded for WWII service. I am not sure if this would have been awarded for previous WWI service but certainly a good decoration either way. Good looking award with attractive enamel work.

Very cool plaque given "To General Harold K. Johnson, Chief of Staff United States Army from 1st Air Cavalry Division Artillery On The Occasion of Christmas 1965". Nice central metal map of Vietnam. 11 DI crests around the border are all in nice shape except one which is missing one post causing it to swivel which is sort of nice because it shows how they were mounted; Mainly direct mounted instead of having the posts broken off and the crest glued to the wood...

Very interesting travel and tourism book for Germany for the 1935 year produced by the German America Line of cruise ships. Unfortunately it starts at page 19 so the beginning is a casualty of time. What remains is a fascinating write up of tourism points of interest in Germany, many period advertisements etc. The advertisements are very cool and offer a feel for prewar Germany. The inside of the rear cover is a large ad for the 1936 Olympics which was obviously a big deal for Germany...

After the first disastrous winter on the Eastern Front the Germans realized that had to quickly develop better cold weather gear. This style of fur lined cap was popular with German soldiers in Russia. This has field grey wool construction with mottled rabbit fur lining. The front, ear flaps and rear neck all can fold down and can be held in place with the string tie...

Beautiful Mettlach stein that has been engraved as a shooting prize. Engraving looks to read something like "For keepsake of the Prussian King's shooting event August 1 1891 Feldwebel Muller. Feldwebel, of course, is an age old term for the equivalent of a staff sergeant. Stein itself is nicely marked with the Villeroy & Boch Mettalch ink stamp and shows the usual high quality of ceramic work typical of this quality oriented firm...

This is a hard to find Japanese army cold weather or arctic cap. As most of their operations were in warm areas these are not too common. This one is also in superb condition and would be nearly impossible to improve on. The fabric is clean and unstained. Every button and every loop to attach to the respective buttons is present. No loose threads, stains or anything of the sort throughout. Probably the best detail is that even the fur is clean and in healthy shape...

Late war cardboard back SS rune collar tab. These backs are not very sexy but interesting late variants. Nice, real example priced right.

Nice small size pennant. At about 32 inches along the long sides this is a perfect small size for display purposes and a nice twist on the usual rectangle. One side is nice and clean. the other side has a few pen marks on the white disc. Apparently the last owner had kids that were even worse then mine. Nice flag priced right.

Very nice unmarked 1939 iron cross. Really nice patina and good condition throughout. I added the ribbon which is an old one but not original to this particular medal. Very nice decoration priced right.

Really terrific lot belonging to an early panzer man, the sort of thing that doesn't come along very often. First a used postcard showing the same early model tank as is being used by the unit in question. Then there are 10 loose photos, all except for two having descriptions on the back in the same hand. With the exception of the very fine portrait photo, all are on Agfo-Lupex or Agfo-Brovira stock and all are full of men in the early panzer berets and black uniforms...

Very interesting flag. Large building sized flag but not obnoxiously large. Top portion is a square party flag about 56x56 inches. One half of this (Two sided flag so could be right or left) has the top of a long tapered tail attached. This tale stretches for about 105 inches. I would imagine there would be another mirror image pennant and the two bordered a large doorway or archway. Stamped on the disc is "Eigentum der Stadt Trier"...

Very interesting French flag that I assume is a regimental flag as the three barred symbols toward the end can't, in my eyes, be anything besides battalion colors. As there are very few French flags remaining from the war (A side effect of being out of the war very early and very quickly) there is little to compare this to but the construction is absolutely typical of WWII era with type of grommets used, type of fringe and how the sewing is executed. The silver fringe is beautifully made and nic...

Terrific set of unissued Luftwaffe officer collar tabs still with factory tie connecting them at bottom corner. Perfect bullion and nice orange felt representing signals branch. Three gulls, oak leaves and aluminum braid trim represent rank of Hauptmann or Captain. Really nice set without a lick of damage.
