Very nice unit engraved Mecklenberg horse artillery sword. 60th Field Artillery Regiment. The WKC maker logo is under the langet but hard to photograph. Some light spotting to the blade but nothing significant and will improve with the application of a little oil. Some gold leaf remains to the engraved paneling. Blade is very firm on the grip with no loose fitting "wobble". The handle shows age wear similar to the blade. The only minus on the handle assembly is one loose wire on the top row...

Unfortunately this one was put in a washer or something because the color ran. Priced to move because of this. Nice, small size measuring about 45x55cm.

Really neat and scarce item. This Land Customs M43 has a shot sweatband but is otherwise in terrific shape. The sweat band has only one bit remaining and the rest of the way around is just the small attached bit. Beyond that the fabric is clean, undamaged and has a really good feel to it. The liner is also in great shape and well marked...

Very nice DRK enlisted visor cap. Terrific example with no significant damage. The black chinstrap does show honest period wear to the black surface but nothing even remotely coming close to a break or a tear. The celluloid diamond on the inside is cracked and in one corner of the visor there are four stitches out. Both of these issues are shown in the photos and the visor lays on the hat frame just fine. There are many positive. I find no evidence of any mothing anywhere...

Very nice Japanese rising sun flag with souvenir script. Typical example of the type of flag an occupation soldier would bring home. The silk flag itself may or may not have been produced during the war but would have been close. With nice looking writing this is a good display piece at a good price. about 17.5 x 20.5 inches.

Neat piece of pharmaceutical advertising. Fluid filled, clear man with colored organs. The drug advertised is Diuril and was produced by Merck Sharp and Dohme. Some research indicates that these were used in the late 1950's.

Very interesting Honorable Discharge from the Army of the Confederate States. Condition is rough but I doubt many of these have survived, much less even given out as the Confederacy was never in a good position to just let trained soldiers walk away. The ink is very faded but I know "document guys" do have ways of bringing old, faded ink back to life. It is possible to make out a lot of the details, though...

1932 dated signed postcard of Beniamino Gigli. Gigli was an Italian opera singer who many consider to be one of the very finest tenors in the recorded history of music. Good sized signature is on bottom part of the photograph. This is from the estate of Edward A. Schaeffer, a family friend who passed away a few years ago. Collecting autographs of public figures from all walks of life was, for him, an obsession/addiction that brought him much happiness while he was still with us...

Yes, you read the title correctly. This came from an advanced collection. I am not in a hurry to sell this and mostly listed this to share it with some of my regular customers that I consider friends. The bottom text reads "Spare parts for boiling water pump". I believe this was off of a parts locker or cabinet meant for boiler repair but I guess this could also be for a water pump; Hard to tell with my imperfect grasp of the German language...

Reproduction roundel from an SS officer's belt buckle. For what it's worth I do think this is an old repro. Correct aluminum material.

Early German kids' sword, somewhere between a kindersabel anda toy. I\When I saw this shopping I just fell in love with the tag. It is just under 5x5 inches at its widest and has a surprising amount of paint left. The maker name Avant-garde is written across the top. Below that is a neat picture of a heavy cavalry soldier brandishing a sword (Just like the attached toy) and charging a firing infantryman in front of a cannon emplacement. There is also the usual battlefield litter; sword, drum, ri...

Beautiful example of a classic badge. This example has a simply lovely chocolate patina throughout with original pin on the reverse. This badge was given to those who attended this famous rally in 1933. The importance of this rally was soon recognized and this badge became an officially recognized medal which could be worn on uniform. A must for any serious Third Reich collection.

Well, here's a conversation starter. For whatever reason wealthier families used to be fixated on dressing their kids up in sailor suits. This three piece set came out of Lancaster Pa which has always had a sizable German community. Germans in the early 1930's saw a resurgent Germany and, without seeing the darker side, were proud of being German. This little suit dates to that period and, if not worn by a family in the infamous America Bund it belonged to a family which likely had that type lea...

Neat little patriotic flag or banner. About 18x27cm. Mounted on a crimped metal hanger. Great wall hanger as this is a portrait type showing lots of medals.

Sold, Thank You
Nice 2nd model lftwaffe dagger. No make mark but in solid condition and priced right. Blade is in terrific condition. Handle has nice deep orange color. One of the braided handle wires has a break in one thread. This can be seen in the photo closeup and even when one is looking for it this is not a big deal. Metal fittings are aged as shown in photos. Knot has significant age wear as shown in photo. The acorn and thread are in good shape but cord is well worn. Priced right and will probably not ...

Very nice enameled stickpin representing the famous Pour Le Merite medal. The Pour Le Merite was, despite its French name, Germany's highest award for military valor during WWI. Although replaced during WWII with the Knights Cross, many winners of the Blue Max from WWI were still authorized to wear this award during WWII. There are many photographs of Erwin Rommel showing him wearing his Knights Cross with his Blue Max clunking away behind it. This stickpin is an attractive example with blue ena...
