Nice example of a Prussian enlisted pickelhaube spiked helmet. All original parts. The red, white and black cockade looks to have been repainted. There is a tear in the liner (See 3rd and 4th photos) and two tongues have torn where the tie string goes through. The plate has two extra holes which is odd because it is doubtful this was "upgraded" to a Prussian EM. The rear spine prongs are gone but it is firmly in place, being held by the back screw and pressure from the spike assembly. There is a...

This document is an affidavit stating that this soldier served in the Continental Army during the revolution. Basically it states that John Pratt of Dublin, county of Cheshire in New Hampshire served in the last three years of the war. It is signed by what looks like Joseph Atherton. After the signature this fellow states that at the time of enlistment Pratt lived in another town but I can't quite make it out. Very cool document and it is always nice finding something related to the Revolutionar...

Let's face it; These sew on/tunic removed pieces are just cool. Nice officer set with no damage except for where shoulder boards were removed. Set matches in both rank and age wear and look real nice together. Rank is Oberleutenant. These have a general good look right down to the impression on the shoulder boards where the button pushed down for a long time. Priced fairly.

E.P.&S. ground Rohm dagger. This one was obviously done by the owner himself. The dedication is only lightly rubbed out with a lot of lettering left. The name is completely gone with hash marks showing where it was done. This area goes right down to the top of the E Pack logo. Blade does show greying and the usual in/out runner marks. Anodized scabbard has a light ding but generally in good shape with another light ding to the ball. All in all a nice piece.

Neat award. Front shows a well done eagle. Rear reads FUR: BESONDERE LEISTUNG - DER OBERBEFEHLSHABER VON KAYSER GENERAL DER KAV . This reads as : Performance Award - The Supreme Commander Von Kayser General of Cavalry. It appears the Von Kayser was indeed in charge of mounted troops at some point before the war. Nice medal with a good amount of gold finish remaining.

Very scarce item. Dutch NSKK volunteer Badge of Honor. These were only awarded in two separate ceremonies. Among recipients were something like 40 Dutch NSKK drivers attached to 6th Army that were pulled out of Stalingrad pocket. A few have recently turned up near Berlin but as they are dug they are in relic condition and mostly broken. Word on top of badge "TROUW" translates to loyalty or honor. As this was for NSKK, outher portion of badge is a tire inside of which is the Wolf's Angle (Dutch S...

Terrific knot here. Could be for a sword but I suspect it is for a fire police bayonet but probably for a higher individual. These straps are normally silver and red wire woven into leather but this one is gold colored wire woven onto lightly striped black fabric. Silver acorn is nicely age toned with the tip showing alternating red, grey and silver twisted wire threads. Super quality example of a very scarce pattern.

I am pleased to offer Swords of Imperial Japan 1868-1945 Cyclopedia Edition by Jim Dawson. Even after owning this book for quite a while I am amazed at the detail with which Mr. Dawson attacks the subject in this 448 page monster. Virtually every page is profusely illustrated with over the top photography relating to the highly detailed text. This book is a must for both the beginning and advanced collector. In the photos of this listing I have included the table of contents which is the best wa...

Very cool Hitler Youth badge commemorating 10 years of the Munich Hitler Youth 1923 - 1933. Cool Eagle over Feldherrenhalle . Around the eagle is the motto UND ICH HABT DOCH GESIECT! Which translates something like "And after all this you have triumphed". Backmarked H WITTMANN MUNCHEN

Top and side compartments are purple lined and include four sets of cards; Two have the same SSA initials and there are two that have U.S. IRS import stamps for playing cards (one is detached from the pack). Other i...

This luger came with a lot of police items so I am assuming it is a police holster. Conditionwise it is not a cherry but it has not ever been messed around with. Some minor loose stitching and wear spots but everything is strong and not close to giving out. Generally nice condition. Maker marked J.M.ECKAT U&M under the lid and a few areas have different numbers. Nice, honest piece.

1936 youth Yerabook and calender. fascinating item. As this was before the years of mandatory enrollment, this book seems to be sort of a recruiting item. At 104 pages it is full of descriptions of life in the youth groups and short stories with military overtones. Front and rear cover art is very well done with vibrant colors. Inside of rear cover has a slip for a gameboard; The gameboard is still present and in excellent condition. Book itself shows very minor wear. Corners are still relativel...

This lovely, unique Civil War relic is out of my collection. Carved by a confedrate veteran in remembrance of the battle of First Bull Run, this pipe has every spare piece of space carved with something clever. The pipe bowl is in the shape of a bull's head with the underlined word "RUN" right between his eyes. Above this is a soaring eagle. Below this word is a southern gentleman leading Abraham Lincoln by a chain. The southerner's name looks to be "Sowarel"; I have no idea who this is and I ma...

Nice SA sport shirt patch. White on green with the group designated as KP. These are fun to collect as they come in various colors and group designations. This one has nice, strong color. There is a stain at about the 10 o'clock position. On the reverse is an RZM tag which is always a nice bonus. The letter "P" in the lower left corner indicates that this patch requires a fairly high level of detail (This scales is an A to Z scale). This is a good time to buy into athletic material as a fine boo...

Terrific set of hangers for a WWII German army dagger. While this is not by any means a rare item, hangers generally saw solid use and had a very weakly applied silver finish. This example is a hard-to-find set in top notch condition. The brocade is crisp and clean and the velvet backing is immaculate with a lovely, smooth pile. The metal fittings still retain a large amount of the original silver frosting which is extremely rare. I am not going to guestimate the percentage of the finish remaini...
