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...

This is really a nice piece. I would assume this likely saw use in WWI but would guess the compass is actually made right around 1900. Compass works perfectly and is marked as being made in Germany. The cse was obviously made for this particular compass as the fit is real snug and the base of the compass loop nestles perfectly in the hole in the hole. Closes securely with a pressure fit. Hinge is well made and in good shape. No damage found and a nice, even patina throughout...

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...

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"...

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...

Collar litzen for panzer officer. Great look and high quality. Reverse shows lines of stitching from tunic removal with many threads remaining. No nips and only the very gentle signs of wear consistent with use. Great looking pair.

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.

I don't recall ever seeing anything like this before. Mint condition funeral sash with what I assume is the original stiffening on the reverse and possibly part of the original packaging. I would assume it was for a party member and military veteran as it has both the swaz and iron cross. The packaging has signs of writing which are no longer visible. Thin cardboard with wax paper cover. Really an interesting, unique item and certainly puts the "fun" in "funeral".
