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.

I am not sure if this falls under the category of "trench art" or if it is more of a war souvenir but it is cool nonetheless. This is a letter opener with a 1914 miniature iron cross riveted on. I am not sure if this is ivory, horn or something else but I don't see any ivory grain. There is a notch to catch and tear the envelope when opening it. Small metal piece on top acts as a paper clip holding a piece of paper so I guess this could also be used as a bookmark. 10cm overall length. Just a cu...

This item is related to one of the saddest chapters in our history and is offered with the thought that preservation and recognition are vital to remembering the past. "Those who ignore the past are doomed to repeat it". There are innumerable fake representations of such armbands but this is guaranteed authentic. Ghetto Gemeinde was the self governing council installed to regulate the day to day life inside of the nazi established ghettos of Poland. Real examples are very hard to find as those w...

Very cool panzer man's drivers license. Issued in 1944 with stamps matching unit designations on the document. Very cool uniform photo. Feels like a fine, rubberized fabric which I guess is meant to make it resistant in field conditions and also allow it to be folded in the fellow's pockets. Really neat late war panzer related item.

Lovely steel Jaeger Zu Pferde pickelhaube. These mounted light infantry were similar to dragoner units and the helmet is patterned after cuirassier spiked helmets. The blued steel is in line with 1915 regulations and this example is made by C.E. Juncker and dated 1916. All metal parts are period and appear to be original to the helmet. Light age wear as shown in attached photographs. I do believe the chinstrap is a reproduction. A lovely helmet for those who like Imperial spiked helmets and a ha...
