This is a very interesting set of six cigarette holders. They are in the original sealed wax paper envelope but seem to be thick paper or cardboard. Each has patriotic motifs including a battleships, flag stand, airplane, portraits etc. Packaging has a good looking iron cross in a laurel wreath and the humble price of 10 pfennig. I have never seen this before nor could I find any other examples online so figure this was a cheap type of item that nobody bothered to save. Great piece.

Partial cap tally for the German Norddeutscher Lloyd shipping line. This is a pre-war example. While it is a partial and only about 24cm long it is priced low and is a great reference piece to show how the stitching was done. The flag is the shipping line logo and is really nicely embroidered. Very cheap way to get a nice back piece for a nautical related display.

Lovely brass bugle with embossed Prussian eagle. Below this eagle is maker name and date: C.W. MORITZ BERLIN 1914, making this now 100 years old. Bell is reinforced with a band of German silver trim with a decorative double groove on the upper piece. A brass ring is affixed to this silver band. Mouthpiece looks to be original to the bugle with a short chain that looks like it fixed to a ring near the stem that is now gone...

Very nice Reichskriegerbund member visor cap. The NS-RKB was the Third Reich manifestation of the veterans organizations originally formed for veterans of the 1870 war. The intent was to have a support and social group dedicated to helping veterans. A noble thought that most countries with combat veterans also employ. However, in post WWI Germany the veteran groups had real political clout and were often the pre-organized muscle behind various political movements...

Very interesting and scarce visor cap. The basic shell looks to be a relatively normal fire police cap but the bottom insignia indicates this to be Luftwaffe attached fire service. Both the eagle and the lower winged insignia are in mint condition and nicely melted into the fabric. Under the sweatband on the wearer's left are three stamps dating this cap to 1939 and reading Fl.H.Kdtr Leipheim. Fl.H stands for Flughafen so this would read Airport/Airbase Command Leipheim...

This postcard is from a series released in 1941 featuring many different badges and awards. Really a great series with artwork just begging to be used for displaying a good armored assault badge. Shows a nice portrait of panzerman in early beret with a tank in action behind and the assault badge lower right. Unused so reverse is blank. If you are feeling extravagant you could even use this to surprise a friend with a fun piece of mail.

Very interesting SA postcard with cool cover art and nice cancelled stamps. Most interestingly this was sent to a fellow in New York. The card is in English and is generally about stamp and postcard collecting strategies. However, at the end Johanna tells Frank she will be home in a few week and that "I have to tell you a lot"...

Very cool postcard featuring naval artwork. Behind the sailor is a U boat and to the lower right is a U boat badge. This is from the 1941 Tag Der Briefmarke. Postcard is unused and the reverse is blank. Attractive artwork and a great piece to add to a U boat badge display.

18 Year Long Service medal with Luftwaffe eagle device. Both pieces are magnetic. Does have a decent amount of wear but it is a scarce medal and not 'toasted' by any means. I think this one has a good bit of character ad is priced right.

Elastolin soldier suffering the effects of a Lineol explosion. Great analogy of the competitive spirit between these two companies. In actuality both companies made good products and these two pieces look good together. Both in very good shape except the usual cracking around the fellows arms. As these dry they often have to give somewhere and across the arms is a common spot. Still a really nice looking pair.

Visually stunning bronze table medal depicting Victory, wielding a sword and with hair flowing behind, riding a tank over barbed wire and trenches. Beautiful, solid piece measuring just under 7cm in diameter. Signed A. Morlon. Edge is stamped "BRONZE" and with a tiny cornucopia which I believe represents the Paris mint. Reverse depicts a shield over extensive laurel leaves. One side represents attack and the other defense. Really very powerful imagery.

Absolutely lovely Imperial German Navy stein. Artwork includes a zeppelin and a very nice rendition of an armored cruiser in addition to the usual patriotic flags, stands of arms combined with soldiers drinking beer and working the ladies. I think he must have been a member of the cruise crew as the banner reads "An Bord S.M.S. Prinz Adelbert". Comparing to photographs of the Prinz Adalbert it is clear that this is the ship pictured on the stein...

Very nice map produced in 1944 by the U.S. Army Map Service. Taihoku, West SW, Formosa. "Prepared under the direction of the Chief of Engineers...". Top reads "For use by War and navy Department Agencies only. Not for sale or distribution". I am assuming the statute of limitations is up on this. Condition is great but there are obviously fold creases. Otherwise nice and clean.

Reproduction British memorial plaque (Or death plaque). Being offered as educational example. Nice, heavy piece a little over 8cm in diameter. These were given to next of kin of soldiers killed in WWI and would normally have the soldier's name in the blank rectangle.

Very hard to find fallschirm prusschein. Basically this is a log book to record who packed a particular parachute. With the information recorded the packer is more likely to do a better job since a chute not opening correctly would give the packer a one way ticket to the eastern front. Printed on blue oilcloth to make it strong and weatherproof. The cover has the specific information on the parachute and the unit...

Very nice 1939 iron cross stickpin. Good looking cross appears to be brass with nicely painted black center and has a nice three dimensional shape. On original LDO card which is in good shape with some light age wear. Nice little set.
