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 In 1938 these were withdrawn in anticipation of mobilization and all members were then to wear the generic "Kriegsmarine" talley except for some naval schools.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 attractive dress bayonet with brown leather frog indicative of Luftwaffe personnel. The Eickhorn marked bayonet is in great shape with no particular damage to speak of. The blade shows only 3 little spots along the edge on one side (See photos), otherwise clean and mirror bright. The handle fittings are all equally clean and the plug remains in the slot. This green plug is a scarcer variety. The brown frog is a winner with nice, healthy leather. Nice backmarking JOSEPH MOLL GOCH 1937. Scabb...

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...

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.
