Very cool medal for the centennial anniversary of the 7th Regiment National Guard from the State of New York. Good looking medal with minor age wear to the gold finish. This is a big medal and looks to be about 5cm across and rather thick. Measurement is an estimate as it is cased in a shadow box. The shims in the back are numerous and jammed in there really tight so instead of making my fingers bleed I am going to skip on a photograph of the back. The penny is shown for perspective but keep in ...

Reproduction roundel from an SS officer's belt buckle. For what it's worth I do think this is an old repro. Correct aluminum material.

Beautiful example of a classic badge. This example has a simply lovely chocolate patina throughout with original pin on the reverse. This badge was given to those who attended this famous rally in 1933. The importance of this rally was soon recognized and this badge became an officially recognized medal which could be worn on uniform. A must for any serious Third Reich collection.

Well, here's a conversation starter. For whatever reason wealthier families used to be fixated on dressing their kids up in sailor suits. This three piece set came out of Lancaster Pa which has always had a sizable German community. Germans in the early 1930's saw a resurgent Germany and, without seeing the darker side, were proud of being German. This little suit dates to that period and, if not worn by a family in the infamous America Bund it belonged to a family which likely had that type lea...

Neat little patriotic flag or banner. About 18x27cm. Mounted on a crimped metal hanger. Great wall hanger as this is a portrait type showing lots of medals.

Nice 2nd model lftwaffe dagger. No make mark but in solid condition and priced right. Blade is in terrific condition. Handle has nice deep orange color. One of the braided handle wires has a break in one thread. This can be seen in the photo closeup and even when one is looking for it this is not a big deal. Metal fittings are aged as shown in photos. Knot has significant age wear as shown in photo. The acorn and thread are in good shape but cord is well worn. Priced right and will probably not ...

Interesting SS propaganda leaflet or booklet. 14 pages in rather rough shape and mostly detached; Priced accordingly. Although undated it seems to be from that early to mid war period where the German hierarchy was hoping against hope that the British would just come to their senses and realize that Germany was fighting to save Europe and that the only hope the British had of maintaining their empire was to call a truce with Germany. Interestingly enough, this last bit had some truth behind it. ...

Respectable SD heer helmet. Period overcoat of sand grit paint. One of those "been there" pieces with solid aging and a field look to it. Respectable decal with aging in line with the rest of the helmet. Also a couple of white flecks of paint from an uncareful previous owner; Could be nicked off easily but I don't touch anything. Chinstrap is a little stiff but could be conditioned. Liner is in good shape with a nice dark brown toning. I find no maker marks or lot number; Either it was unmarked ...

This is a very interesting item with a fair amunt of character. The book is titles "Die Wehrmacht Das Buch des Krieges 1940/41". It is a typical German propaganda book with lots of good photos and text and goes into fairly good depth on the war in France, air war against the British, the Balkan campaigns and the invasion of Russia. The book becomes interesting when the cover is opened and we find the book was presented to SS Funker (Radioman) Dietrich Eckern. Basically reading "Dedicated on the ...

Extremely interesting WWI German steel helmet. Looks to have an Italian liner and chinstrap. Very consistent patina on throughout. Could be visually improved by simply letting some oil soak in but I am a purist and don't even clean my finds. It is impossible to see how the liner and strap system are fixed as it is underneath the metal band and I can't pull on the liner too much; It is simply out of site. The chinstrap is not using the original German chinstrap bolts. The liner is in very solid s...

A very impressive piece. Eagle trophy presentation reads: "Our esteemed company commander SS Haupsturmfuhrer Zahn in memory of the 4th (MG) Company of the 8th SS TK Regiment, Lublin on January 30, 1941". This rank is basically equivalent to a captain which is right in line with being a company commander. Apparantly this fellow was the commander of a machine gun of the 8 SS Totenkopf regiment. While Lublin has terrible memories associated with the war, I would assume that this unit, being a machi...

Very nice officer's visor cap. Sometimes the piping colors drive me a bit nuts but I think this is Transport but possibly Sonderfuhrer. It is a soft, pale blue. At any rate it is an interesting variation. Condition is really top notch. I find one nip just over the eagle and one nip in the velvet band just over the right side slide knot. Then there is a stain on the inside liner. All three of these condition issues are visible in the photos. The negatives being said, this hat is in super shape. V...

Very cool GAR medal. Dated April 15th 1903 and for the First New York Regiment. Some missing fabric to ribbon but gold finish to the medal is near perfect. Hard to find unit specific GAR medals let alone to a cool unit like the 1st New York.

HJ proficiency badge. Nice and clean with a very smooth patina with perfect, super crisp detail. RZM M1/34. This is priced low because it looks like there was a number that was removed for some reason.
