Very cool and very rare patch This is the sleeve patch or arm badge as worn by women in the Nachrichtenhelferinnen des Heeres (Army signals). With the number designation this was probably intended for some HQ unit. Unissued. Very hard piece of insignia to find.

Very cool, large size obsolete military police badge. If that weren't cool enough it is a Marine Corps badge from Camp Lejeune. I would guess this was Vietnam vintage. Excellent condition as per photos. Preat piece.

This medal couldn't be any cooler. This is a Brigade Commander (Most certainly a general) medal from the UCV (United Confederate Veterans) 1937 reunion in Jackson Mississippi. Confederate veteran medals are rare and cool enough as it is but honestly, how many COnfederate generals were still on this side of the clouds in 1937? Yes, the ribbon is obviously well worn but this is just such a neat medal.

Extremely rare Spanish Cross Next of Kin medal as awarded to family of those German Condor Legion "Volunteers" killed in that conflict. Records show that 315 were awarded which is about half the number of Knights Crosses with Oak Leaves awarded. This came out of an advanced collection in Wilmington DE and it looks like even the ribbon is correct. The eagles are all (Correctly) separately affixed. This would be much more expensive on other sites...

Way cool gold eagle for luftwaffe general's summer tunic. Very strong gold finish with very light wear to the front. Reverse shows gentle patination. Pin is a little bit bent but I see that as a non-issue. The final image is interesting as it shows the border of where the gold finish was applied and not applied. Just a really neat item.

Excellent example of a relatively scarce veterans cross. PLKV was the Preussicher Landes Krieger Verband. Nice first class pinback example in gold. No damage that I find.

Hard to find NSKOV gorget. This is from a solid, old collection and absolutely guaranteed not to be one of the Eastern European things coming onto the market recently. Some age wear to the front as per photos. Rivets and face plate are in solidly in place. Full length chain in perfect shape. Backing is in great shape with two tiny nips as per final photo. These are more often then not really chewed up in back. Very nice, very honest piece.

This is just a neat item. Cigar Box by Otto Boenicke featuring Reichsmarschall Hermann Goering. The inside lid features a very flattering rendition of Goering and the trim of the box, both inside and out features alternating laurel leaves and field marshal batons. On the right side of the box is an interesting 20 rpf (Reichspfenig) tax stamp with a nice embossed eagle...

I have always liked battle damaged helmets as each is unique and certainly has its own personality. This one has anything one might look for; Early double decal (2nd decal ghost remains), some original finish and quite traumatic damage. This one is opened from the inside out and the rusting is even in the cracks so has obviously been like this for a long, long time. Personal friends have seen a lot of crazy stuff but this one still gets a good reaction from collecting veterans; A real looker.

Volume 1 of the classic series Uniforms, Organization and History of the Waffen SS by Bender and Taylor. Content is obvious from the title. This is one of the earlier, classic works in the collecting field. Significant enough that the forward was written by the simply huggable Otto Skorzeny.

Very nice pair of scarce large size black Italian shoulder boards. Gorgeous Italian bullion work on the fasces. No damage found except for the rub on one of the axe blades. Top notch example of a hard to find set.

This is an interesting Soviet banner. Looks to be for a competition winner presumably to workers performing at a superior rate. This type of banner is not terribly rare but this is the higher quality with made of a very pleasant red velvet. Instead of being screen printed this "deluxe" version has lettering that is nicely chain stitched and the profile of Lenin is a separate piece nicely bordered with 1/4 inch brown stitched border. Nice bright yellow fringe and cord...

Author signed 2 volume set and numbered in the first 200 sets produced. For whatever reason, until now there has never been a serious and exhaustive reference offered on the topic of sports and the Third Reich. Sports and athletics were a very important part of the pre-war movement and the author, Rob Newbrough, does a wonderful job of capturing this. Rob is a good friend and I was quite pleased to be able to contribute to the production of this set if even on a humble scale...

French historical medal commemorating the storming of the Bastille in 1789. Medal by Jean-Bertrand Andrieu. There are some things the French are just better at then anyone else; Food, wine, fluffy dogs, storming spooky prisons and making big fancy medals. This impressive (If historically inaccurate) portrayal of the storming of the Bastille is really an impressive work of art. At about 79mm in diameter this is a large item and sure is an attention grabber...

Interesting medallion from the aircraft designing and manufacturing company founded by Tony Fokker. Fokker is most famous for his WWI aircraft used by Germany in WWI which were revolutionary in design. As is often the case with technological development, WWI greatly accelerated advancement of aircraft design and Fokker's planes were always in the forefront of this evolution. When WWI finally ended Fokker moved his company to his native Holland ...
