Very interesting medal. I believe this was issued to show defiance to the League of Nations Sanctions probably put in place to protest Italy's campaigns in Africa. Date on medal is November 18 1935 with Mussolini's profile (Of course). This is kind of how I feel toward the UN. Not a large medal; Just a bit wider then a quarter.

Excellent condition liner band for WWII German helmet. Dated 1943. Maker marked B & C LITZMANNSTADT . Complete down to the rings for the chin strap. Nice item but since I have a "don't fix" rule I guess this will never do me any real good so I will pass it on to the next guy.

Very nice musician sword by Ames. Inspector marked ADK and dated 1864. No negatives to speak of; Just a nice, solid sword. Drak of scabbard is also marked ADK. Besides the expected musical duties, musicians during the Civil War were often pressed into service as stretcher bearers and emergency medical orderlies.

Very attractive framed photograph. Shows 12 men in full uniform. Caption attributes these gentleman to the 4th Battery of the 5th Field Artillery Regiment , Landau 1908. Even if discharged, fellows like this with heavy equipment experience were invariably called back to serve in WWI. No damage to the photograph (Please excuse the light reflection in my images). Frame shows evidence of light wear but is still very nice. Something is written on the back in pencil but I can't make it out...

Very cool antique Hessian regimental stein. Kanonier Hasele; 6th battery of the Hessian Field Artillery Regiment 61 of Babenhausen. Gorgeous field artillery scenes with vivid coloring throughout with raised details consistent with originals. Date of service was 1906-1908; Most soldiers serving in this time period were later called up for service in WWI...

Nicely detailed luftwaffe banner painte on a light masonite type material. I have seen these before (Examples of various flags/standards) but not sure exactly what they were used for. One explanation I have heard is that they were used as seat markers at higher level meetings between service branches. In this case it would tell the representative from the Luftwaffe intelligence service where at the table he would be seated. The material is light so they are almost always a bit damaged...

Nice ersatz felt Prussian EM pickelhaube. These are popular as they were strictly WWI issue. The back right visor and the top around the spike are a bit pushed in but these felt helmets can easily be reshaped by wetting them; I just have a "Do-Nothing" policy so it will be for the next guy.

Nice 2nd model luftwaffe dagger by Tiger. Blade rates excellent with no real damage to speak of. Nicely aged and undamaged handle with nice fittings. Knot shows some thread ware near the stem . The hanger is a deluxe type and is profusely decorated with oakleaves. These are a nice, sturdy set and all three clips are backmarked DRGM. Just a bit of wear on the edge of the straps from period usage...

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...

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...

Nice little political car pennant or wimpel. No holes or tears. Solid white border. Light soiling typical of age. Machine embroidered swaz. Original clip is in place. Could use a quick ironing but I don't touch any of my offerings.

Nice police long service medal with ribbon folded into parade mount. The embroidered eagle actually looks to be on a separate piece of ribbon, separately wrapped around a second piece of backing. Very interesting piece.

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.

Hard to find luftwaffe leather flight helmet with the plug and throat microphone. Leather is just about perfect; Soft, supple and scuff free with no damage found. The soft white leather on the inside of the sweatband, chin straps and throat mics is is still quite strong but does show some discoloration from being exposed to skin oils when in use way back when; I actually consider this a positive as it shows this helmet was used quite a bit. Straps and buckles are all present and also undamaged. ...
