These ranks were used on garments not usually bearing insignia such as coats, work and drill uniforms and most notably in period images, on flight suits. This is a beautiful (And real) example colored for summer/tropical use. Perfect with no damage save a tiny rub on the felt of the middle "mustache".

Sold, Thank You
Perfectly respectable artillery officer visor cap. I think this is a period an NCO upgrade. One rub near the insignia and one pin hole on the top. Generally solid condition.

Yes, it is a darn shame about the decal hit on the eagle. All I can say is that I didn't do it and that it saddens me also. If everything was perfect, though, we wouldn't have the thrill of the hunt, right? Anyway, the eagle looks gold to me but could be toned army. Have added three closeups of the bird with different lighting with and without flash. Under a loop it does have metallic sparkle. Consistent wear throughout. Chin strap is broken. SE maker mark was S├Ąchsische Emaillier u. Stanzwerke...

Interesting menpo. Below is an old ring mail skirt laced on. It looks like this is the correct configuration and intended use but the skirt has been laced on with a modern shoelace. Apparently a quick repair by previous owner, this is reflected in the price. Overall reasonably solid condition. The gold wire border on the skirt is frayed from age and there menpo itself has a crack on one side (Please see photos attached). A bargain price if you need a filler menpo until a more elaborate example i...

WWII Japanese binoculars. Generally worn condition throughout.Not falling apart but missing some areas of leatherette cover. Good for display if you need a cheap piece. These are not the little ones that seem to be all over the place and measure 18cm in length.

Cool grouping from a member of the 90th Bomb heavy bomber group. This unit fought in Asia and was famously called the "Jolly Rogers" after their skull and crossed bones unit ID. The patch is blue with red stripe with one nip about 11 o'clock and some rub burn around the bottom edge (See photo). Also included is an excellent 11 place miniature medal bar and a unit history from one of the reunions. Very fun set.

Nice pair of deluxe luftwaffe dagger hangers. There is a repair to one strap near the main clip. There is every indication that this repair is period and other then that this is a real nice set. The main clip is the Thor hammer style with RZM U.E. 19 maker mark. All three clips are also DRGM marked. Being a deluxe example, all the hardware is attractively covered with oak leaves. Besides the aforementioned repair, the straps are very nice with virtually no edge wear, unsnagged aluminum wire thre...

Interesting tinnie marking the 60th year of this particular veteran group, likely started by veterans of the Franco-Prussian war. Upper left is a swaz, upper right the typical veteran monument. Center has a lion rampant surrounded by "Krieger Kamerad Schaft Hassia" translating loosely to War Comrade Society. Ribbon below has the dates 1874 1934. Excellent condition with an area of oxidation on upper left of rear. Veterans groups were one thing that Germany had not been short of over the years. N...

Nicely done bone inlay tray. I would think that this is from southeast Asia. Good sized example at 47x33cm. There is a fair amount of surface wear due to age as well as missing inlay here and there. I do not repair items but I would think that the missing inlay could be filled in and of course there are always ways to fix surface wear. The wood is a mystery to me being quite dark and having a grain that looks almost like hairs. Pretty work on this piece and priced quite fairly.

Nice mother's medal from the fascist Italian era. Each bow represents a child. There are 6 bows on this one but it looks like a 7th was at the top but has been lost to time. Slight green tint to rear of ribbon.

Well this item is somewhere between "really cool" and "super cool". As the variety of devices for pickelaube were so vast this salesman was given a set of photographed examples to pedal. The brown envelope is about 31.5x42cm. The text on the envelope identifies it as the offerings of the maker Paul Meybauer and published in Leipzig. The envelope itself shows some minor wear but is really in pretty good shape considering age and likely usage; Still crisp with no damage or even any folding creases...

Interesting, period, thick cardboard poster of a Third Reich agricultural district. Not military but I always find this "Blood and butter" stuff interesting. It is a little bowed and the corners show real wear but colors and the "meat" of the poster are still solid and attractive. This would still look pretty nice if flattened out in even a cheap Walmart frame. The river is the Inn so without doing much research I would assume it is an area in Austria. Not a fancy item but really a unique item w...

Rising sun parade flag. Very interesting that this remains in such good shape as it is small and delicate. Stick measure 30cm and has black stripes and a neat little gold painted ball at the top. Besides the fact that this delicate stick has not broken it amazingly has the original tag still in place. The silk flag section measures about 17x12cm and still has bright coloring. This is not an expensive high end item but it is just really neat and would look great in even an advanced collection. 2 ...

This is a neat little item. Priced cheap as it needs a repair but will be cool when fixed. The bag says something about 2600th anniversary which I believe is a reference to 1940 when Japan celebrated the 2600th anniversary of the Japanese empire mythically founded by Emperor Jimmu. It is an interesting date as Japan was heavily engaged in China and was being cornered into a deeper war with the western powers. Little telescoping flag pole broken in the middle. It came with the little metal ring s...

No this is not a scarce medal but this is as good as you can get. 2nd class war merit cross with swords on a lovely, clean and well wrapped parade mount. The accompanying document is likewise in excellent condition. It does have the usual fold in the middle but the corners are reasonably sharp and the paper is free of stains and yellowing. Very attractive pair. The photograph came with. No, there is no proof they are involved but I am not charging extra and I would like it to stay with the set. ...

Very cool G.A.R. kepi for the first New Hampshire regiment which fought at First Bull Run and other notable engagements. Very neat bullion patches and GAR buttons. Very solid structural condition. Damage consists of 2 nips to the fabric and a blister to the bottom of the visor all shown in the photos. Nips are hard to notice because of the dark color of the hat overall. Label looks to read "THE M. C. LILLEY & CO COLUMBUS OHIO MANUFACTURERS OF MILITARY AND SOCIETY GOODS". I am not sure what the l...

Nice three place medal bar. Iron Cross second class, Hindenberg Cross and Wuerttemberg (Or Wuerttemberg) Bravery. Always nice to find off-state medal bars. Iron Cross on this bar is a very nice hallmarked example and is a winner by itself. Nice unit with no damage beyond normal gentle wear for a set this old.
