Interesting hat cockade for Ukranian volunteers serving with German forces during WWII. Due to Soviet treatment of Ukrainian populace (As well as other locals) many Ukraninians first considered the Germans to be liberators and quickly volunteered. To give them a sense of identity this badge was authorized for wear by those volunteers. A couple of light dings to the blue paint on front, otherwise in perfect condition. Both prongs are there on the back; They are just folded together. A nice item a...

Very interesting set of 24 Vichy French press photos. Most have captions but a couple have explanation written on back. Vichy material is not very easy to find because after the war the Frech were obviously not happy about the whole thing and survival rate of such items were low.

Here's an over the top item. Fastening clasp for Luftwaffe officer cape or cloak. The cape was an optional private purchase item that was no longer available after the war began. This clasp is a textbook example. Each boss has an eagle head with a short chain connecting, one side of which can hook and unhook. Correct silver light weight metal with aluminum back discs. The clasp is sometimes called a "Spanierschlosse" (Spanish castle). One wonders what hard bitten front line Wehrmacht soldiers th...

Very interesting BDM memorabilia, BDM of course being the grirls' version of the Hitler Youth. This is an inviation to a social event at Schonbrunn Castle in Vienna. This is a famous historic castle long. The invitation is printed on high quality parchment with a very nicely embossed BDM eagle. Dated May 1939 (When things were still "fun"). Attached is an HJ/BDM membership pin. It is nice quality with just a tiny tick to the enamel in the lower point. I leave things how I found them and I think ...

Very interesting helmet. Many Dutch helmets were used by foreighn volunteers fighting with the Germans. When not in use by Dutch soldiers the lion crest was generally removed. The fact that it remains here indicates this was possibly used by Dutch SS voluntees. The camouflage paint job is certainly old and period and the name label being German corroborates. Whatever its story may be this is a fascinating helmet. Liner is fine but metal buckles are well rusted.

Interesting doeskin jacket. Definitely old and definitely real but has a Hitler Youth diamond pin and gold lettered Hitler Youth district triangle. All buttons are HJ DJ buttons. I can't think of anybody spuriously putting the boys' triangle on when the girls' is cheaper. I am leaning toward this being worn by a woman who was involved with the Hitler Youth and don't see any reason why this is not possible. A couple of spots on the back look like something that could be scraped off (I touch nothi...

Nice mint set of matched visor cap insignia includes eagle, cockade and wreath. Just a slight bit of age oxidation to the side of the cockade, unavoidable with the material it is made of. Eagle and wreath are mint. One of those things that is very hard to find when needed.

Very rare, hard to find tunic. Text book four button wool construction with upward sloping pockets. In great condition throughout. The only negative I find is that the stamp below the color is not very clear. This type of sleeve insignia was introduced in 1943. With no border on the Org Todt armband this was for EM or NCO; I would assume NCO with the red tress around the color. Great example of a very rare item.

Neat leather tinnie for Gau Tag 1935 Darmstadt. Leather is always a neat variation, but as usual the pin is repaired.

Obviously, this is important. For the price of a decent army dagger one can own a unique piece of history. I am sorry to have to block part of the image but for now I have paid for it and own it (It wasn't cheap). From his outfit and I would assume pre-war. If anyone knows who he is meeting with, input would be much appreciated. This came out of a very interesting grouping I recently acquired including photos and very early NSDAP photograph postcards from the 1923 Deutschertag Nurnberg with Hoff...

Lineol radio operator. No, he isn't shotting a gun but he's still cool. Tiny crack to neck but no wobble there. Some paint scuffing but still very presentable. These things sure are fun.

Very cool Elastolin soldier. The usual light couple of cracks and some light paint scuffs but still very presentable. The guys firing the machine guns are cool but I don't recall seeing the guy walking with the machine gun before. He looks to be getting ready for business.

Excellent mid-war complete uniform for army artillery leutnant, right down to the suspenders and boots. Because of the detailed photography necessary I am splitting this into two separate listings. The fabric throughout is perfect, fresh and undamaged. This uniform was well cared for, possibly right off the rack as the tailor tag is still in the pocket (In French) and the label sewn in the inside pocket has the same tailor emblem (JB). The best way to describe this is to point out the few negati...

First pattern SA sports badge.The bad news is the 4 oxidation spots on the front. The good news is that this is the first pattern used from March 1934 to January 1935. It is also a premier maker, Lauer, Nurnberg - Berlin. Over a million sports badges were awarded so 29292 is very low. Really a very nice example.
