First pattern grade two marksmanship lanyard. Unfortunately missing the button loop atop the plate so either needs a minor repair or can be used for display. Priced accordingly.

Unissued bayonet troddel or sword knot. The width of the yellow acorn cap is about 3.8cm. Clean and perfect. This color combination conforms to the 7th company. I believe the leather strap and slide indicate a grenadier guard regiment. Very nice tassel.

This is a good looking double sided pennant which is made with a reasonably high degree of quality. If not for the nipping visible in the attached images it would be a real looker. The long edges are about 53cm and the short edge is about 18cm which makes this a nice, smaller size which usually works well for display purposes. The center swaz is a nice bevo weave and the outside of the white discs are nicely chain stitched. The three edges are folded over to one side and there is a double row of...

The RNST was the German agency that oversaw the governmentalization of the agricultural industry. The motto "Blut und Boden" translates to "Blood and soil" and was meant to imply that the blood of the "folk" was equivelant to the earth's soil and both were dependent on each other. Or some such nonsense meant to celebrate the connection of the "folk" to the nation's farming industry. But I suspect that it was just seen as another opportunity to offer another badge for people to collect and we sho...

Really nice Alcoso RAD leader dagger. Everything is nice and tight and clean and all fits together correctly. The grip on the logo side does have a crack. The good point is that this crack is the opposite from the blade motto so won't show in a display. The blade is very lightly sharpened and I honestly didn't even notice this until looking at the blown up images on the listing. Going back to the dagger it is even hard to see when looking for it. This and the crack are priced in. Top of the scab...

Nice silver grade DJ proficiency. RZM M1/120 for Wilhelm Deumer, Lüdenscheid. DJ were the boys too young for HJ. Nice badge.

Very nicely executed enamel and gold wash badge for 25 year veteran Eisenbahn Verein with the '25' being found in the silver washed oak leaf wreath at the bottom. I have seen this with a pin on the back for wear as a badge but this one has a post for wear as an oversized lapel pin. Looking at the finish on the reverse I don't believe this one ever had a different configuration. The device is 32x37mm. A bit then a normal lapel pin should be so the owner had bent the post in a bit to clamp on the ...

Gorgeous example of a rare dagger. N.P.E.A. student dagger with bottom crossguard marked N.58 . This is an early number and the "N" indicates the school to be Naumburg/Saale. Students had the option of engraving the school on the upper crossguard and this one is indeed engraved N.P.E.A. Naumburg/Saale. I believe the upper engravings were done upon graduation. The blade is an extremely nice example with very minor age wear and cross graining still showing. The engraved motto "Meht sein als schein...

Very nice, large WWII era Japanese naval sake cup with a diameter of 10cm. Very strong paint with gold leaf anchor with Rising Sun flag in the center adorned with cherry blossoms. Also in gold, across the top is a crane whose wings extend to give the whole cup a gold rim. The crane is a symbol of loyalty to the emperor. On the bottom is the soldier's name: Yoshikawa. I find no damage or even paint rubs. Great piece to add to an Imperial Japanese navy display.

This armband was introduced in 1937 and was meant for combatants who were not member of the armed forces (Wehrmacht). I am still not sure what that exactly means but it is a good looking eagle on an eye-catching yellow field so a great piece for display purposes.

This is a great looking WWI German patriotic pin or brooch. The center is a transparent dome with an Imperial navy flag. Around that is a laurel wreath with bow. Around that layer is an attractive blue enamel field with gold colored border. Very nice piece; One would think maybe for the wife of a sailor. A little over 4cm wide.

Just an absolute screamer SA dagger by RZM M7/27 Pumawerke. I am quite serious when I say the only spots on this one is the little flake to the plating on the edge of the cross guard just below the eagle grip inset and the tiny rub to the scabbard paint on the backside just below the scabbard throat (See last two images for both). Other then those two spots I can't find anything worth pointing out and this is easily the best paint I have ever had on an SA scabbard. The blade shows perfect blacke...

This is a rare medal with great history behind it. This commemorative war medal was instituted by Elector (Kurfürst) Wilhelm II on 14 March 1821 to recognize Hessian soldiers who took part in the second and final round of the Napoleonic Wars 1814-1815. Inscribed on the edge is "AUS EROBERTEM GESCHÜTZ" which translates to "From captured cannon", indicating that the metal used for this decoration was from a cannon captured at Waterloo. The obverse shows the year dates 1814 and 1815 and the wordi...

Nice Infantry Assault Badge by R.S. Original war time production. Comes with the envelope marked Infantrie Sturm Abzeichen Bronze. Towards the bottom a bunch of purple numbers that might have meant something to someone a long time ago. Envelope is every bit of 70 years so a bit delicate, a small hole bottom reverse and some paper damage toward the reverse top. Nice badge and still presentable envelope. Nice item.

Very scarce arm badge or sleeve eagle for male DRK uniformed personnel. The patch worn by the female uniformed personnel (Triangular patch with district) is more common but the male sleeve eagle seems to be quite hard to locate. Supposedly because by the mid-war period most able bodied men were in either armed forces or armaments industry with the ladies being used more for medical purposes. Just about 6x4 cm. Fine condition with a couple small spots on the front (See image). GES.GESCH. marking ...
