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 ...

Very nice WWI trench art picture frame. AEF was the Allied Expeditionary Force. This unit was the 815 Pioneer Infantry which was a unit comprised of black enlisted men at a time before integration. I don't like digging at things so I even left the stickers on from when I acquired this. This is handmade so not a very complicated piece but it does have good history.

Very cool feldpost document stamper. The last photo is the actual imprint given. "Dienststelle der feldpost Nr 59 645B". It looks like this was used first in 1943 by Staff and Companies 1-4 of Reserve Panzer Grenadier Battalion 215 which was destroyed in 1944. In June of 1944 this feldpost designation was used by Staff and 1st Battalion Panzer Grenadier Regiment II, also destroyed 1944. Clearly this stamper was bad luck. Very neat, very real item.

Rare items. Weimar navy marked silver spoon and knife set. These are earlier examples as later were usually dated. Both are marked 90 for 90% silver. Obviously the knife blade is not silver but is marked as "rostfrei". The spoon also has a maker mark. Both show their age and have a ding here and there but really a nice, rare set. The knife also has some white residue around the throat which I imagine would come off without much trouble. Total raw weight is 5.6 ounces.

Interesting cap eagle looks to be Eastern Peoples. Well worn condition but definitely an interesting piece of insignia.

Respectable pair of cavalry officer's spurs. One buckle and the end of the opposite leather strap are missing and it looks as if they were ripped open when buckled. The other spur shows an intact buckle and strap. Interesting item priced fairly considering damage.

On first sight one would think that due to simple physics only a dummy would have a square coffee cup. I found Bill O'Hara online and it is clear that he was no dummy. Bill O'Hara left school early to join the merchant marines in WWII where he served in Europe and the Phillipine Sea. He later joined the U.S. Army and was in the Korean conflict early, being awarded a purple heart for wound in 1950. After 20 years active duty he retired in 1960 and even after retirement worked in both Korea and Vi...

Interesting Wehrpass. Not much filled out byut it appears this fellow, Robert Alois Flassenberg, was witht he recruiting department or Wehrbezicks Kommando. More interestingly, this group was in Hagenau (As seen on the stamps and entries both). This was the town shown in Band of Brothers. This town stayed in German hands until almost the end of the war and wwas featured in one of the later episodes "The Last Patrol". Also includes a couple of feldpost scraps, one of which has the fellow's name o...

Two signed prints featuring Felix Von Luckner. One of the more inspirational figures of WWI, this enterprising captain was a famous commerce raider sailing a three masted ship with hidden engines and armament. He had a knack for being successful while minimizing casualties which made him universally popular. While he is famous as a raider he did also fight in some conventional engagements including the Battle of Jutland. Modern frame job but a very attractive item to hang on the wall if you are ...

This eagle is rare enough it took me over a year to figure out what it was. Worn by French volunteer police acting as security at the U-Boat pens La Pallice. Very rare patch almost impossible to find in condition. This has paper residue on reverse from being in a photo album. There are stitch holes along the perimeter from when it was sewn on a uniform. Great item.

Nice fire police patch. Town name is Losheim which is interesting as this was the town in the vicinity of the major effore of during the Ardennes offensive (Not Bastogne).

Nice Luftwaffe DD. The eagle side, unfortunately, has a mostly rubbed out decal with a few parts and the general shape still visible. The tri-color side is a terrific looking decal with a cool crackle pattern to the crazing. The shell overall has a nice original finish with pleasant signs of age wear (Greatly exaggerated in my photos because I use a heavy flash for my photography). Maker and size marked SE64 for Sachsishe Emaillerwerke, Lauter. The chinstrap is awfully fresh so I think it was li...
