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 ...

Lovely French naval artillery shorts sword which saw service from about 1771 to 1790, a span which perfectly brackets the American Revolutionary War. This exact sword is featured in George C Neumann'a important Swords & Blades of the American Revolution. I have the Third Edition from 1991 and find it on page 189. As the French both supplied troops and also equipped many of the American units it is very likely that this saw service in that war and, as it recently came out of a house in Pennsylvan...

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 GB marked Gustav Bremer Luftwaffe flak badge. Later zinc version but nice detail throughout.

P patch for Polish laborer in Germany. Cheap construction consistent with late war production of non-military insignia. Besides the use of slave labor Germany also imported voluntary laborers in increasing amounts due to obvious manpower shortages. The line is hazy as the German placed governments in occupied zones such as Poland didn't leave much for the locals. If a man wanted to eat he was likely to have to go to the Reich as a "volunteer" laborer. To identify themselves such laborers had to ...

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.

Nice, original WWII era German aiguillette. I believe with the red trim this should be for Red Cross (DRK). While I am sure of the age I am assuming on the Red Cross designation so would appreciate input.

Hitler plaque measuring just a little over 7cm by a little over 5.5cm. Small size but nicely detailed and quite solid for such a small package. The back has a leatherette stand in place. I have had this same type of plaque before and I believe there is also a ring underneath of the backing for wall use.

Interesting grouping for Warren H Lauder. The center piece is a nice sterling airborne glider assault qualification badge / wings. Includes 8 photos, one of which is an official ID type photo. Century Division Rangers patch (Set with Ranger patch and 100 patch) as well as his lucky 13th Airborne Division patch and an original period Glider Pilot Song. The last three photos show three documents which are just photocopies the family gave. They are very lightly rumpled which is how I got them. The ...
