Very nice Preussischer Kriegerverband medal with the 25 year device. This device is the scarcer version with the red enamel Prussian crown rather then the usual example showing the veteran memorial. All is in great shape with no damage found. While wuite affordable I always did like these medals as they show a very good looking eagle. This maker has used a raised eagle that looks especially good. I tried to take a side view photo to show this. There black and white background is likewise undamag...

Very nice cap talley for the K-Klasse cruiser Karlsruhe. Kriegsmarine crew members of ships were authorized to wear such tallies on their Donald Duck hats to identify the ship they were assigned to. In 1938 these were withdrawn in anticipation of mobilization and all members were then to wear the generic "Kriegsmarine" talley except for some naval schools. Condition on this talley is superb with perfect machine woven gilt thread with no snags or "washing out". There are some folds due to in bein...

Very nice quality private purchase artillery officer visor cap by Pekuros. Typical of this maufacturer the fabric is a higher quality then normal and the difference can easily be felt. Eagle insignia is nicely rounded and "melted" in. Bullion wreath insignia is a gorgeous example. The red piping shows a good bit of wear and unevenness (See photos).On the inside between the green leather sweatband and the feldgrau shell is a thin strip of black velvet I believe to be a characteristic of this make...

Der Stahlhelm was the largest of the WWI veteran groups. Originally it was designed to help WWI veterans reintegrate to normal life. It took on more of an active militaristic role as it absorbed some of the many armed freikorps and as the often violent power struggles increased within Germany. By 1933 most of its membership was transferred to the SA and by 1935 Der Stahlhelm ceased to exist. Nice stickpin with pleasant aging marked N&H GES GESCH.

Brass two piece stamped other ranks buckle with nicely detailed Wurttemberg crest. The front of the buckle looks great but sadly on the reverse the attachment prongs are missing. Otherwise a very desirable buckle.

Very nice M39 army panzer EM/NCO breast eagle. There is a fold crease but this is obviously something that can flatten right out. Nice item.

Nice looking NSKK sleeve eagle. RZM tag remains but in obviously worn condition (See photo). There are a few thread loops remaining from when this was sewn on a tunic. Nice patch with a good degree of character.

Very nicely rendered inkwell in the form of a Prussian pickelhaube. As a bonus there is a sword going through the helmet as well. Fittings are all complete with good detail. Even the chinstrap is real leather. Inside the well itself is a thimble (Which comes out easily enough if need be) which is useful in reducing the size of the well for smaller amounts of ink. The bse is a black finished metal disk which is interesting because this looks like the same material and finish of the plates used in...

Nice army engineer NCO visor cap. Size is 54 and marked on crown. There is some moth nipping mostly on the felt band. This is certainly priced in and is subtle as the colors are dark throughout and next layer doesn't show much at all. Visor remains very nice and shows only some very minor wear. In the corner of the visor there is a touch of glue showing and the sweatband is stuck on at that spot. Apparently there was some minor repair but everything looks fine with no evident damage so I am not ...

The Spanish Blue Division represented the Spanish military contribution to the German effort in WWII. For Franco's part it was a way to get the hotheads out of town. For the soldier's part, the Blue Division represented a solid group of anticommunist believers. As a result, the Blue Division is widely accepted to have fought like tigers and was certainly one of the more effective volunteer "legions" in the German war effort and are generally accepted as being an elite unit. This wonderful little...

Nice early pattern eagle for SS visor hat. Structurally in great condition. There is some wear to the silver finish which shows the base metal beneath (See photos). The blackening around the swaz is excellent. Back marked RZM M1/8. Nice, respectable example.

Very hard to find tunic removed flak officer's badge or patch. This is very similar to the EM flak patch but with high quality, raised embroidered 88mm gun, swaz, wings and oak leaves. The embroidery is bullion quality but without the interwoven aluminum wire. This is really a great looking and seldom encountered patch. Except for the embroidery and a few other stitches the backing is loose from the wool fronting. There are a few threads remaining here and there from when it was sewn on a unifor...

Very cool army panzer officer breast eagle. Aluminum bullion manufacture. Excellent condition on black wool backing. It is sometimes hard to tell the difference between dark green and black on these so in the first photo I show it sitting on top of a dark green. This listing is for just the top eagle. Tunic removed and threading holes can be seen on reverse backing.

Yep, the gardening club. Membership pin reads REICHSBUND DEUTSCHER KLEINGARTNER. "Kliengartner" translates to small gardener but I believe this means "home gardener'. Odd, hard to find item and really a small but nicely made pin. The eagle is a separate attached piece and stands out nicely.

Very nice cased Iron Cross First Class. Cross is overall excellent condition as per photos. The box is a real screamer. This is the quality domed box with embossed iron cross. The leatherette cover is soft, supple and healthy with very light wear. The inside lining and felt base are clean and undamaged. The button works great and the rear hinges are in perfect shape. This box is easily and at least a 9.5/10. Really a nice, untouched set.

Very cool, obsolete badge. COMUSFAC (Commander US Facility) SUBIC BAY, PROVOST MARSHAL. DEPARTMENT OF THE NAVY - UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. This badge has an extremely low number: 24. While this badge is very cool and very real and very obsolete it is also rare enough that I can find no comparable examples with which to date it. From looking at enough of this type of thing I would think the pin assembly looks to be WWII or earlier but I could be wrong on this. Really a superb badge.
