This buckle is just about perfect so not much to say. I know someone could find some little ping or little scratch so I will call it near mint. It is just about perfect and I doubt a better could be found. This is out of my collection.

This classic book is a pictorial history of the NSDAP and Hitler's rise to power. It is another of those interesting books with separately attached photos. While in decent overall shape, I find this one is missing 6 of 225 photos. Many are not attached tightly as the original owner seems to have had an e light touch with the glue. The cover must also have been cracked on the front inside as the binding is retaped there. Priced accordingly. No matter what one thinks of the NSDAP, the rise to powe...

Overseas navy cap. The cockade looks a little weird like it was replaced somewhere along the way. Other then that everything is real and original on a nice Kriegsmarine side cap, priced accordingly. Name "Berger" written onthe inside.

Very cool trench art ashtray. The match holder at the top is engraved on both sides. One side shows a crown and reads "NEDERLAND HERRUST". The other side reads "BEVRUDING SPEKH-HEIDE 17 SPETEMBER 1944". I belive "Bevruding" should be "Bevrijding" which means "Liberation". The date of Sept 17, 1945 coincides with the begginning of Operation Market Garden. The interesting point here is that Market Garden was not much of a success and the failure to finish this battle as planned was immortalized in...

Soft leather holster for a Walther P38. In good, original condition except for the addition of the rawhide strap that has the look of a veteran add on. Markings on back are not pressed on very hard so difficult to make out. Code looks like DKB but last letter is super faint. Below that is a "44" and what looks like a light waffenamt. Honest example.

These books are really cool when they are all filled in. The book was originally purchased empty and customers could get a photograph with every pack of cigarettes. The photos are colored and very well done and the finished product, with 270 photos, is very impressive. Even the flak image on the front is raised and embossed. This one only has a little over 20 photos so is priced to sell. There are a couple of spots where it looks like photos were removed but mostly just empty as if the fellow ga...

Very cool hate belt type of souvenir put together by a veteran after WWII. Some are full of garbage but this one has three neat pieces on it. Nice Luftwaffe belt but some trimming of the leather on the end. The buckle is a nice luftwaffe EM buckle. On the belt are two very nice silver British coins dated 1940 and earlier. Last is a Frauenschaft leader enamel pin/badge, the leader level having blue trim. The enamel on this badge is perfect. Really neat set.

Very nice condition fire police NCO visor cap. Just a small area of where on the rear edge (See final photo). Insignia is nice and sunk in with a been-there-forever look. Nice celluloid maker diamond from a firm that specializes in fire fighting equipment. Stamps designate this hat as being from the Obersalzberg area police force with inspector dates of 1942 and 1943. While the hat is certainly correct, I don't know how to tell if these markings are legit but I would assume nobody would be addin...

Very attractive reproduction of the famous Pour le Merite medal. This is the famous German order (Oddly enough with a French name) known as the Blue Max. Nice, thick ribbon made with metallic silver weave on the sides. One light scratch on the reverse of the medal (See last photo). Very nice filler for display purposes.

Another SS NCO photograph. This one is dated 1934 on the back. Looks like good information written on the back but I have trouble reading it. Koln is about all I can decipher.

Allgemiane NCO Photo. Back stamp designating it as being taken by a member of the Bonn Guild of Professional Photographers. Top rate photo shows good uniform details and a great looking cap on a handsome SS man. Easily a publishable photo.

Nice family postcard photograph with an Allgemaine SS NCO. He is a bit tucked in behind one of the ladies but some cool uniform details are evident including cuff title, collar tabs and a bit of his dagger. Unposted.

These are out of my field of expertise and I am relying on a colleague who identified these for me. He says they are %Rhodesian and hasn't been wrong yet for me but if anyone out there has a different opinion I would much appreciate it. Photos show the pattern and the "busy" areas. Looks like one button has been replaced. That is typical of well used bush combat gear, together with the other repairs shown and the fading.

Nice pair of 1943 dated U.S. Navy BUSHIPS binoculars. Good overall condition. A little dusty since I don't clean anything except my kids and my kitchen.Optics seem to be fine.

Very nice silver grade clasp for Transport and Glider squadrons. Fair amount of silver finish throughout. The back hook is a bit bent. The front is missing the eagle attachment but still looks good as below where that should be is an identical eagle. Has anyone ever figured out why they added an eagle attachment over an identical eagle? At any rate, a cool medal priced accordingly.

Nice cased example of War Merit Cross w Swords. Die struck zinc construction typical of late war production. Medal is in very good condition and maker marked "3" for Wilhelm Deumer. The box has an embossed War Merit Cross on the lid and looks good closed. The back leatherette spine is separated. Inside, the cardboard paper trim is lifted in the back left corner (This really could be glued down with decent results) and the silk joiner in the back is ripped a little more then half way. This all ad...

Interesting set of what appears to be 38 various regulation booklets, song books, BDM newsletters, receipts and hand typed letters and one cool looking youth propaganda magazine with a viking ship on the cover, all related to the running of a BDM group. Of special note are the 7 leaflets in the first image titled "Obergaubefehl". Obviously this translates to "The District High Command" for Gau 7 (Nordsee). A little lower it states that the content in these documents is only intended for the use ...

"Remember the Maine" became the battle cry for the United States during the Spanish American war in 1898. Hostilities broke out after the explosion of the Maine in Havana harbor. Apparently the old slogan "Remember the Alamo was deemed to have been successful enough for a retread. This change purse was a product of that time "fad". The buff leather is worn (As buff leather well over 100 years old tends to do) but there are no tears and the leather remains quite soft and pliant despite age. Ther...
