Excellent sew in shoulder board for SA with nice M rated tag. These were worn on one shoulder of the infamous SA brown shirt. Standard brown braid with silver threading. The backing on this example is a muted yellow. Tag is nice and crisp with a few additional, period notations. An excellent example.

These were purchased from a friend who is an avid military signature collector. He purchased a bulk lot of these directly from Galland who passed away in 1992. The postcard is a reprint of a war time postcard that he used to sign autographs. It is a nice portrait photograph of him in his Luftwaffe uniform with, among other decorations, his Knight's Cross with oakleaves...

Faithful reproduction of the hard to find 1st class German Red Cross neck order with ribbon. Beautiful enamel work and sharp detail throughout. Back marked "CHR. BAUER WELZHEIM". Excellent filler piece for related display and educational purposes.

Nice looking patch. Luftwaffe eagle over cogwheel and "G L" designates this as technical service which was in charge of a myriad of extra "chores" from ordering parts, materials and consumer goods to organizing promotions and transfers to supplying life buoys to the Sea Emergency Service. Very nice with only minor signs of age.

Sold, Thank You
Excellent pair of Hensoldt Wetzlar Dialyt 10x50 binoculars with tropical paint finish similar to Afrika Korps motifs. Minor wear to paint on the surfaces you would expect to see from normal use. Small chip to one eye cup (See photos). Strap has broken and has a staple repair and should probably just be removed. Optics work great. Low serial number 14725. Period photos of this binocular type usually show them in the hands of a panzer officer.

RAD tunic sleeve patch. Excellent example; Clean and clear. Great to put on that tunic or to add to a Labor Corps display.

Decent reproduction of the British Victoria Cross meant for educational purposes. Reasonable example if you need a place filler.

Very nice set of WWI vintage Carl Zaeiss binoculars. I don't know much about how the dials work but the optics seem to be nice and clear. Lense plate is present and should be fed through the strap but I do not want to mess with the strap buttons. Case is really neat with the original label and wool padding.. Shoulder strap on case is broken. All in all, a nice, early set that is hard to find these days.

From the estate of a friend who was an avid autograph collector. Short personal letter signed by Franz Halder who was in command of OKW until (I believe) 1942. LOetter is dated July 1970 and seems to be a reply to a request for signed photos and a return of one dollar which accompanied the request. Franz Halder passed away in 1972 in the Bavarian town from which this letter was sent; Aschau. Letter is folded in half (Below text and signature) with some chipping to top of document.

Really neat small metal plate with Hitler and Mussolini. Above their busts is "VINCERE", and below is a nice looking eagle clutching a swaz and a fasces. There is a maker mark in lower left hand corner and a date that I can't read. I am not sure exactly what this plate was for but it certainly is interesting. Unfortunately, whoever pulled it off of whatever it was on was a butcher and the bottom fixture hole was ripped open and the plate has a bend in the middle. Measures 6x4 cm.

Interesting WWII German tie clip. Good looking heer style eagle looks similar to the type on helmet decals. Unmarked. Patination on the back of eagle matches that on the clip itself. An interesting item.

This is the Civil War discharge certificate for James M Bell, Captain Company D Thirteenth Pennsylvania Cavalry. James Bell. The unit saw heavy action including Culpepper Court House, Mine Run Campaign, Wilderness, Cold Harbor, Ream's Station. In the Battle of the Wilderness he was breveted a Captain for gallant services, and a Major for similar conduct at Ream's Station. Things really got interesting for Captain Bell, who stayed in the Cavalry, during the Indian Wars...

Terrific police officer sword. Early matte blade is a quality examplewith only minor spotting toward the tip. Maker marked Clemen & Jung Solingen. Gorgeous handle shows only very light freckling to the nickel fittings (See photo). Black ribbed handle is just about perfect with a very nice copper police eagle inset. Just for accent there is a scrap of the original sword knot on the knuckle bow. Scabbard is in similar excellent condition. Paint is well over 95% with only some spots about midway...

Now here is an interesting item. Excellent two place ribbon bar for both the 15 and 25 year NSDAP long service awards/medals. These medals are very scarce and very valuable and now that I think about it I don't remember ever seeing the ribbon bar before. Both ribbons have the devices as well.

Beautifully embroidered pennant or small banner for the 1933 Deutsches Turnfest Stuttgart 1933. 71x11.5cm not icluding metal suspension device. Pennant is very clean and embroidery is strong throughout except for some wear to the oak leaves (see photo). Interesting to see a swaztica on something this early. I believe the handsome horse is the symbol of the city of Stuttgart which is the capital of the state of Baden-W├╝rttemberg in Southern Germany. A very attractive pennant.

Extremely interesting example of an Imperial German Bavarian belt buckle. Nice two piece brass frame with silver Prussian crown disc. Sides and reverse show a most interesting mechanism that I honestly can't exactly figure out; It looks like some sort of a friction type fit. Middle tab is marked DRGM 172088. Really a most unique buckle which would look good in even an advanced collection.
