Welcome to Hiscoll Military Antiques

Dear fellow collector

Here you will find a good range of military items of which the originality is 100% guaranteed. I have chosen NOT to show any forbidden symbols on the article photos: you are most welcome to ask me for any additional non-altered pictures.

I strive to offer quality, original items only, of which some originate from my own collection. I assure you that all the artifacts on this site are original, unless stated otherwise and back this with a full money back guarantee.

I am always looking to acquire new items for my site and/or collection. Please do offer anything that you feel might be of interest; either in part exchange or for cash.

'Standard' WH-issue, reddish-brown-coloured and/or 'Bakelite'-based container, still containing the 'Hautentgiftungsmittel Losantin' in the form of tablets, neatly maker- (ie.: 'JLC'-) marked and/or dated: '1942' This is a small-sized item that was carried by all WWII German troops in their gasmask-containers: a 'standard' WH-issue, reddish-brown-coloured and/or 'Bakelite'-based container, still containing the 'Hautentgiftungsmittel Losantin' in the form of tablets, neatly maker- (ie.: 'JLC'-) marked and/or dated: '1942', in overall very nice and unopened condition. This example - which is marked ie. dated on its top and/or bottom) still has its (undamaged) paper-based etikets in place and also shows its (beige-coloured-) tape-closure in place (something that is not that often the case). Simply a nice little equipment item that is often missing: hard to upgrade this example!

Very nice - and rarely encountered! - SS-armband, as intended for members within an ‘SS-Stammabteilung’ (or supplementary reserve), depicting the interwoven swastika on a white background and having two white stripes in place - very nice condition! This is a very nice - and truly rarely encountered! - linnen-based SS-armband, as was specifically intended for SS-members within an ‘SS-Stammabteilung’ (or supplementary reserve), depicting the interwoven swastika on a white-coloured background, having two white-coloured (and also interwoven-) stripes in place, in overall very nice (and IMO only slightly used ie. worn-) condition. These neat bands were specifically intended for SS-members being over 45 years of age and were only authorised for wear for a very short period of time (they were already disbanded in mid-1937!). They were worn on all various SS-uniforms amongst which the black attire. This example - having a total size of 39 cms. - is neatly - and entirely! - woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique ie. pattern: it shows some truly minor wear and/or usage (some minimal staining is visible and it is also a tiny bit wrinkled). These entitely 'woven' examples are not that commonly encountered as their woolen-based counterparts. Simply an attractive and rarely encountered SS-related item that is IMO accordingly priced!
'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based so-called 'flat-back version' by a (by me) unidentified maker This is an attractive - and IMO moderately used ie. worn - example of an: 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based so-called 'flat-back-version' by a (by me) unidentified maker, in overall very nice, and IMO only moderately used ie. worn, condition. The badge is typical, non-magnetic-, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based example that retains most of its typical greyish-silver-coloured finish: it has a typical zinc-coloured 'age-patina'. This particular example comes naturally mounted on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-coloured-) pin (which is mounted on a typical 'mounting' and shows a 'welded-on'- catch (as mounted on a copper-based plate) as is more often seen). The piece is still very detailed and has a very pronounced appearance: the award has IMO been used and shows some regular wear on the obvious higher areas: it is moreover a tiny dirty ie. stained (see pictures) but was most certainly never cleaned nor polished. It originated from a private household in Germany and was never before in collector-hands. I deem that this piece can most certainly be further attributed to a maker if wanted or deemed needed. In any case a very attractive and honest GAB that is IMO accordingly priced!
'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based so-called 'hollow-back version' by a (by me) unidentified maker This is an attractive - and IMO moderately used ie. worn - example of an: 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based so-called 'hollow-back-version' by a (by me) unidentified maker, in overall very nice, and IMO only moderately used ie. worn, condition.

'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based so-called 'hollow-back version' by a (by me) unidentified maker This is an attractive - and IMO moderately used ie. worn - example of an: 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based so-called 'hollow-back-version' by a (by me) unidentified maker, in overall very nice, and IMO only moderately used ie. worn, condition.

'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc-based- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) hollow-back- (ie. so-called: 'deep-pan'-) variant-pattern This particular example - being as stated a - non maker-marked- zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) piece as always with these 'deep-pan'-variants - has maintained an attractive nice (and somewhat brownish-) age-patina and comes naturally mounted on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or copper-toned-) pin. The piece comes with a catch that is mounted on a circular-plate (and might IMO have been once replaced). The piece is very detailed and pronounced: it has IMO been moderately used and shows some wear on the obvious higher areas: it is moreover quite dirty but was IMO never cleaned. The piece is IMO never polished and does still show great pronounced detail. To date the exact maker of these 'deep-pan'-variant GABs has not yet been determined. It should be noted that this is a desirable - and with certainty not that often encountered! - GAB-variant that can easily be graded 'scarce'.
'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc-based- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) semi-hollow-back-version by the: 'Rudolf Karneth' company This particular example - being as stated a - non maker-marked- zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) piece as always with pieces by this maker - has maintained a nice (and somewhat brownish-) age-patina and comes naturally mounted on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or copper-toned-) pin (which is mounted on a typical- ie. 'ball-hinge'-mounting as is more often seen). The piece is very detailed and pronounced: it has IMO been moderately used and shows some wear on the obvious higher areas: it is moreover quite dirty but was IMO never cleaned. The piece is IMO never polished and does still show great pronounced detail. I deem that this is a typical piece that was produced by - and can be attributed to - the: 'Rudolf A. Karneth u. Söhne' company based in the town of Gablonz.
'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' or General Assault Badge (GAB) - nice, only slightly used condition! This is a sound example of a General Assault Badge (GAB) or 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen'. This one is a non maker-marked example, executed in so-called: 'Feinzink'. The badge has IMO never been cleaned and shows truly great detail: as more often with these GAB's has the piece lost most of its silverish finish and a darkened 'tarnished' appearance. The badge is most certainly never cleaned and is still a bit dirty and/or stained. The pin and/or catch (set-up) are naturally fully functional. I deem that particular example can be further attributed to the: 'Alois Rettenmaier'-company: it shows all specific details as found with badges by this maked. A nice GAB that is IMO fairly priced!

This one is a non maker-marked example, executed in so-called: 'Feinzink'. The badge has IMO never been cleaned and shows great detail: most of the original finish is still present. The pin & (ball-shaped) catch are naturally fully functional. A truly nice badge that is IMO accordingly priced!

This one is a non maker-marked example, executed in so-called: 'Feinzink'. The badge has IMO never been cleaned and shows great detail: most of the original finish is still present although it shows clear wear and age. The pin & (ball-shaped) catch are naturally fully functional. This example has a 'copper' pin as more often encountered. A truly nice and worn badge that is IMO accordingly priced!
'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' or General Assault Badge (GAB) - very nice, slightly used (almost mint) condition! This is a truly very nice example of a General Assault Badge (GAB) or 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen'. This one is a non maker-marked example, executed in so-called: 'Feinzink'. The badge has IMO never been cleaned and shows great detail: most of the original finish is still present although it shows minor age (caused by storage only?). The badge - which is virtually mint - still has a very 'shiny' appearance. The pin & ('crimped') catch are naturally fully functional. A truly nice badge that is hard to upgrade!
'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' or General Assault Badge (GAB), nice 'Buntmetall' verison - nice, albeit used & clearly worn condition! This is a nice example of a General Assault Badge (GAB) or 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen', which was surely worn and used. This one is a non maker-marked example, IMO executed in so-called: 'Buntmetall', that shows the obvious signs of having been worn and used. The badge has IMO never been cleaned and still shows great detail: most of the original silverish finish is still present although it shows normal age and wear. The piece has an originally attached pin & catch (which are naturally fully functional). A truly nice and desirable badge that is hard to upgrade!
'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' or General Assault Badge (GAB), scarcely encountered 'hollow-back' version - very nice, only slightly used condition! This is a very nice example of a General Assault Badge (GAB) or 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen', executed in the desirable 'hollow-back' version. This one is a non maker-marked example, executed in so-called: 'Feinzink'. The badge has IMO never been cleaned and shows truly great detail: most of the original finish is still present although it shows a very darkened appearance. The badge is most certainly never cleaned and is still a bit dirty. The pin & catch are naturally fully functional. A truly nice badge that is hard to upgrade!
'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' or General Assault Badge (GAB), unmarked 'Feinzink' version' - nice, albeit slightly used & worn condition! This is a nice example of an unmarked General Assault Badge (GAB) or 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen', of the later-war 'Feinzink' type, in fair, albeit, used condition. This one is a - non maker-marked - 'Feinzink' piece having a nice age patina and functional pin and catch. The piece has a functional pin-attachement. A fair bit of the original silverish (sprayed) finish is actually still present, giving this badge a nice overall appearance (it just shows some wear on the obvious higher areas). The piece is IMO never cleaned nor polished (it is actually quite dirty and dusty) but shows great detail. A nice and honest GAB with great character!
'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' or General Assault Badge (GAB), zinc- (ie 'Feinzink') version that is nearly maker-marked: 'Frank u. Reif - Stuttgart' - nice, albeit slightly used & worn condition! This is a nice example of a maker-marked General Assault Badge (GAB) or 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen', of the later-war zinc (ie.'Feinzink') type, in fair, albeit, clearly used & worn condition. This one is clearly maker-marked: 'Frank u. Reif - Stuttgart' and has a nice age patina and functional (thin) pin and catch. The piece has a functional pin-attachment. The piece has a 'zinc' appearance and shows some minimal wear on the obvious higher areas. The piece is IMO never cleaned nor polished (it is a bit dirty) but shows great detail overall. A nice and honest maker-marked GAB with great character!
'BeVo'-type armshield (of the rarely encountered first pattern!) entitled: 'Biz Alla Bilen - Turkistan', being a piece that was intended for a volunteer who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. within the 'Turkistanisches Legion' This particular volunteer-armshield - being of the rarely encountered first pattern! - shows a mosq-symbol with above the Arabic text 'Biz Alla Bilen' is neatly woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique and comes as recently found: being clearly used and/or carefully tunic-removed (see pictures). This example is truly one of the more rarer 'BeVo'-type arm-shields to encounter and only one of the few such examples I ever had on offer in a ten-year period. This shield is as stated in a clearly used and/or tunic-removed condition (it shows clear wear and/or fair aging ie. minimal staining) and is very different from the many copies that are regrettably in existance today. This rare first pattern Turkistanian armshield (as introduced in 1942) saw only limited usage and was quite soon replaced by a second pattern in 1943. These - original - 'official' arm-shields of the first pattern as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo'!) can be easily considered 'rare': nicely worn ie. tunic-removed examples are even more difficult to encounter!
'BeVo'-type armshield (of the second pattern-) entitled: 'Bergkaukasien', being a piece as intended for a volunteer who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. within the 'Berg- o. Nord-Kaukasisches Legion' This particular armshield being of the second pattern and showing a blue-coloured shield with in its centre a three-headed horse symbol with above the (German) text: 'Bergkaukasien' - is neatly woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique and comes as being straightly cut from the roll. The assigned region 'Bergkaukasien' included most of the mountain-rich areas in the Russian Causasus and was at the time known as the: 'Generalkommissariat für die Gebiete der Bergvölker'. These - original - 'official' arm-shields as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo'!) can be easily considered 'scarce'. I deem that I have priced this (virtually mint-/unissued-) example accordingly!
'BeVo'-type armshield (of the third- and final pattern!) entitled: 'Turkistan', being a piece that was intended for a volunteer who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. within the 'Turkistanisches Legion' This particular volunteer-armshield - being of the third ie. final pattern - shows a pink- and/or light-blue- coloured shield having an interwoven bow-and-arrow symbol in its centre with above the (German-) text: 'Turkistan'. The shield is neatly woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique and comes as being straightly cut from the roll. These - original - 'official' arm-shields as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo'!) can be easily considered 'scarce'. I deem that I have priced this (virtually mint-/unissued-) example accordingly!
'BeVo'-type armshield entitled: 'Aserbaidschan', being a piece as intended for a volunteer who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. within the 'Aserbaidschanisches Legion' This particular armshield - showing a blue-, red- and green-coloured shield with above the (German) text: 'Aserbaidschan' - is neatly woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique and comes as being straightly cut from the roll. These - original - 'official' arm-shields as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo'!) can be easily considered 'scarce'. I deem that I have priced this (virtually mint-/unissued-) example accordingly!
'BeVo'-type armshield entitled: 'Aserbaidschan', being a piece as intended for a volunteer who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. within the 'Aserbaidschanisches Legion' This particular armshield - showing a blue-, red- and green-coloured shield with above the (German) text: 'Aserbaidschan' - is neatly woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique and comes as being straightly cut from the roll. These - original - 'official' arm-shields as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo'!) can be easily considered 'scarce'. I deem that I have priced this (virtually mint-/unissued-) example accordingly!
'BeVo'-type armshield entitled: 'Aserbaidschan', being a piece as intended for a volunteer who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. within the 'Aserbaidschanisches Legion' This particular armshield - showing a blue-, red- and green-coloured shield with above the (German) text: 'Aserbaidschan' - is neatly woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique and comes as being straightly cut from the roll. These - original - 'official' arm-shields as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo'!) can be easily considered 'scarce'. I deem that I have priced this (virtually mint-/unissued-) example accordingly!
'BeVo'-type armshield entitled: 'Georgien', being a piece as intended for a volunteer who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. within the 'Georgischer Legion' This particular armshield - showing a red- and/or black- ie. white-coloured shield with above the (German) text: 'Georgien'- is neatly woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique and comes as being straightly cut from the roll. These - original - 'official' arm-shields as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo'!) can be easily considered 'scarce'. I deem that I have priced this (virtually mint-/unissued-) example accordingly!
'BeVo'-type armshield entitled: 'Georgien', being a piece as intended for a volunteer who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. within the 'Georgischer Legion' This particular armshield - showing a red- and/or black- ie. white-coloured shield with above the (German) text: 'Georgien'- is neatly woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique and comes as being straightly cut from the roll. These - original - 'official' arm-shields as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo'!) can be easily considered 'scarce'.

These - original - 'official' arm-shields as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo'!) can be easily considered 'scarce'. I deem that I have priced this (virtually mint-/unissued-) example accordingly!
'BeVo'-type armshield entitled: 'Hrvatska', being a piece as intended for a volunteer who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. within the 'Kroatisches Legion' These shields - showing a red/white 'checkered field' - existed also in German spelling (having the wording: 'Kroatien') and in Croatian language 'Hrvatska', being the Serbo-Croat spelling for Croatia (which is this specimen on offer). The shield is neatly woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique and comes as being straightly cut from the roll. These - original - 'official' arm-shields as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo'!) are considered 'fairly rare'.
'BeVo'-type armshield entitled: 'Idel-Ural', being a piece as intended for a volunteer who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. within the 'Volga-Tartar Legion' This particular armshield is showing a blue- ie. green coloured shield with in its centre a crossed knife and/or arrow symbol with above the (German) text: 'Idel-Ural' - is neatly woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique and comes as being straightly cut from the roll. The piece shows a neat interwoven 'BeVo-Wuppertal' producers-mark on the bottom as is sometimes encountered (see pictures). These - original - 'official' arm-shields as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo'!) can be easily considered 'scarce'. I deem that I have priced this (virtually mint-/unissued-) example accordingly!
'Deutsche Bronzene Verdienstmedaille' (or: bronze class merit medal of the German Eagle-order) being a maker- (ie. '30'-) marked piece as was produced by the: 'Hauptmünzamt - Wien' The award is an attractive example that was (IMO) executed in golden-bronze-toned zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink'). It comes mounted on its typical bright-red coloured and/or white-striped ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') that still retains its (copper-based-) clip intended for wearing it on a tunic or uniform. The award is clearly maker- (ie. '30'-) marked in the ring denoting that it is a piece that was produced by the maker: 'Haupt- münzamt' based in the town of Vienna (ie. Wien). The piece is of the version without swords that shows the text: 'Deutsche Verdienst Medaille' on its back (which is executed in so-called: 'Blockschrift' - see pictures). The piece is very detailed and/or pronounced and was with certainty never cleaned nor polished: it is still a tiny bit stained but has a great, somewhat tarnished 'age-patina'. It should be noted that these 'Deutsche Bronzene Verdienstmedaillen' can easily be graded 'scarce'.
'Deutsche Volkspflege' medal, that comes with its original (rarely encountered!) pouch and (full-length!) ribbon, as was produced by the company: 'Gebrüder Godet' based in Berlin This is a superb example of a 'Deutsche Volkspflege'(or civil-service-) medal, that comes packed in its original (and very rarely encountered!) 'Zellstoff'-based pouch and (full-length ie. 29 cms. sized!) ribbon, as was produced by the 'Gebrüder Godet'-company based in Berlin, in overall very nice, ie. almost mint- albeit IMO issued condition. The ribbon is bright-red coloured and was never confectioned nor medal-attached. The (zinc-based ie. ‘Feinzink’-based) medal itself has a nicely ‘frosted’ age-patina: as often with these 'Feinzink'-based medals is the piece minimally tarnished and/or greyish in colour. The details on the piece, however, are truly stunning. The medal comes still ‘wrapped’ in its piece of thin-shaped ‘wrapping-paper’ (which comes also with the set). The neat (and very rarely encountered!) 'Zellstoff'-based pouch is in a nice condition overall but regrettably misses its entire 'flap': it shows a clearly printed makers-designation: 'Gebrüder Godet & Co. - Berlin' (see pictures). Simply one of the best 'Volkspflege' medal-sets that I had on offer for a long time!
'Deutsche Volkspflege'- (ie. civil-service-) medal, that comes together with its original (minimally confectioned and IMO almost full-length-) ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') The medal - which is IMO executed in silver-coloured, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal - is a very detailed and/or pronounced example: it has a truly nice, somewhat 'matted' age-patina and is also a tiny bit dirty but was IMO never cleaned nor polished (see pictures). The medal came with its almost full-length- (ie. approximately 24 cms. long-sized and/or neatly pre-folded-) piece of (purple-red-coloured- ie. not-faded-) ribbon as issued and/or found.
'Deutsche Volkspflege'- (ie. civil-service-) medal, that comes together with its original (non-confectioned and IMO almost full-length-) ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') The medal - which is IMO executed in silver-coloured, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal - is a very detailed and/or pronounced example: it has a truly nice, somewhat 'matted' age-patina and is also a tiny bit dirty but was IMO not recently cleaned nor polished (see pictures). The medal came with its almost full-length- (ie. approximately 24 cms. long-sized and/or neatly pre-folded-) piece of (bright-red-coloured) ribbon as issued and/or found.
'Deutsches Jungvolk' arm-badge - 'Oberbann 1' that comes with its original paper 'RzM' etiket - stone-mint, unissued condition! This is a nice example of a 'BeVo'-style woven arm-badge of the 'Deutsches Jungvolk' in unissued i.e. stone-mint condition. The white rune-sign on a red back-ground signifies that it was intended for a DJ member of the 'Oberbann 1'. The badge comes complete with its original, paper 'RzM' etiket. Impossible to upgrade this one. A nice piece of youth insignia!
'Deutsches Schutzwall Ehrenzeichen' (aka: 'Westwall'-medal) that is period-mounted on an: 'Einzelspange' The medal was most certainly never cleaned and has a somewhat 'darkened'- (ie. chocolate-coloured-) appearance but was never cleaned nor polished. The medal is very detailed and would look great if re-mounted on a tunic. The ribbon shows some minimal usage ie. staining but is void of any damage: it retains a nice age-patina. The 'Spange' - which is not 'backed' but mounted on a chrome-steel-based back-plate as more often encountered - comes naturally on a functional pin-/catch construction. It should be noted that the 'Westwall'-medal is not that often seen mounted as an: 'Einzelspange'.
'DRK' (ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz') and/or European volunteer-related, aluminium-based ID-disc, bearing the engraved unit-designation: 'Freiwillige Krankenpflege - Wehrkreis VII - No. 162' that comes mounted on its period-attached cord The disc - which most certainly belonged to a nurse who served within the territory of Wehrkreis 7 - is as stated constructed of silverish-coloured and/or alumium-based metal and maintains almost all of the (red-) painted red-crosses (most times this is not the case). These decorative discs - having the additional text 'volunteer' (or: 'Freiwilligen') engraved ie. stamped were worn by the German volunteers but saw also usage by the female Germanic volunteers (originating from for example Holland, Norway, Belgium, Norway, etc.) This example was clearly worn ie. used and comes as worn ie. stored for decades: it is a tiny bit dirty but was IMO never cleaned nor polished. The disc originates from a private household in Germany and was never before in a collection. These DRK-related ID-discs can be graded 'fairly scarce'.
'DRK' (ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz') and/or European volunteer-related, zinc-based ID-disc, bearing the engraved unit-designation: 'Freiwillige Krankenpflege - Wehrkreis III - No. 4031' The disc - which most certainly belonged to a nurse who served within the territory of Wehrkreis 3 - is as stated constructed of greyish-coloured and/or typical zinc-based metal and was clearly used ie. worn: it does show some obvious paint-loss on the (red-) painted red-cross-symbols (as is more often encountered). These decorative discs - having the additional text 'volunteer' (or: 'Freiwilligen') engraved ie. stamped were worn by the German volunteers but saw also usage by the female Germanic volunteers (originating from for example Holland, Norway, Belgium, Norway etc.) This example was clearly worn ie. used and comes as worn ie. stored for decades: it is a tiny bit dirty but was IMO never cleaned nor polished. The disc originates from a private household in Germany and was never before in a collection. These DRK-related ID-discs can be graded 'fairly scarce'.
'DRK' (ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz') and/or European volunteer-related, zinc-based ID-disc, bearing the engraved unit-designation: 'Freiwillige Krankenpflege - Wehrkreis XII - No. 16765' that comes mounted on its (shortened-) piece of period-attached cord The disc - which most certainly belonged to a nurse who served within the territory of Wehrkreis 12 - is as stated constructed of silverish-coloured and/or zinc-based metal and maintains almost all of the (red-) painted red-crosses (most times this is not the case). These decorative discs - having the additional text 'volunteer' (or: 'Freiwilligen') engraved ie. stamped were worn by the German volunteers but saw also usage by the female Germanic volunteers (originating from for example Holland, Norway, Belgium etc.) This example was clearly worn ie. used and comes as worn ie. stored for decades: it is a tiny bit dirty but was IMO never cleaned nor polished.

'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz') and/or European volunteer-related-, zinc-based ID-disc, bearing the engraved unit-designation: 'Freiwillige Krankenpflege - Wehrkreis XII - No. 17300' that comes mounted on its period-attached cord The disc - which most certainly belonged to a nurse who served within the territory of Wehrkreis 12 - is as stated constructed of silverish-coloured and/or zinc-based metal and maintains a fair bit of the (red-) painted red-crosses (most times this is not the case). These decorative discs - having the additional text 'volunteer' (or: 'Freiwilligen') engraved ie. stamped were worn by the German volunteers but saw also usage by the female Germanic volunteers (originating from for example Holland, Norway, Belgium, Norway, etc.) This example was clearly worn ie. used and comes as worn ie. stored for decades: it is a tiny bit dirty but was IMO never cleaned nor polished. The disc originates from a private household in Germany and was never before in a collection. These DRK-related ID-discs can be graded 'fairly scarce'.
'Ehrenblatt des Deutschen Heeres', dated: 17 February 1944 - nice, albeit used condtion! This is a nice and not often encountered paper-item: an A-4-sized (when folded) so-called: 'Ehrenblatt des Deutschen Heeres', dated: 17 February 1944, in nice, albeit used condtion. The paper-item - which shows two tears that have been repaired with acid-free tape - is somewhat yellowed and stained due to age and bears the names of 33 (!) soldiers that have been listed in the 'Ehrenblatt' and could consequently wear the rare 'Ehrenblattspange' on their uniform: all of them had shown extraordinary bravery at the various fronts. Some of the listed soldiers were also bearer of the KC ('Ritterkreuz'). The document - sized: 30 x 21,5 cms. - is folded into two parts and also bears a (facsimile) signature of the 'Führer Adolf Hitler' and shows a large-sized eagle on the front, as is common for these documents. A nice and fairly unusual item!
'Ehrenkreuz der deutschen Mutter - Erste Stufe' (or: mothers' cross in gold) that comes stored in its original etui as issued, being a neatly maker- (ie. 'C.F. Zimmermann'-) marked example This is a very attractive example of the 'Mutterkreuz' (mothers' cross) in gold (ie. 'Ehrenkreuz der deutschen Mutter - Erste Stufe') that comes together with and that is still stored in its period-, blue-coloured etui, in overall very nice and IMO only minimally used- ie. worn-, condition. The medal - which comes mounted on its original, somewhat confectioned but IMO almost full-length ie. approximately 70 cms. long-sized - ribbon shows no enamel damage whatsoever and is in a very nice and/or totally uncleaned condition (it is a tiny bit tarnished as can be seen on the pictures). The bright golden-toned finish is simply excellent and the medal has a very nice age and/or fairly bright age-patina. The ribbon is just a tiny bit stained and/or wrinkled (being a sign that the medal was IMO issued and/or minimally worn). The etui is in an equally very nice condition and bears a clear makers'-mark stamped within the lid, namely: 'C.F. Zimmermann - Pforzheim' (see pictures). The yellowish-white-coloured and/or partly velvet-based inner lining is also in a very nice and fully undamaged condition. The golden cross design on the top of the box is in an almost complete condition: it shows some minimal age only. A nice example that is IMO accordingly priced!
'Ehrenkreuz der deutschen Mutter - Erste Stufe' (or: mothers' cross in gold) that comes stored in its original etui as issued, being a neatly maker- (ie. 'Friedrich Linden'-) marked example This is a truly very attractive example of the 'Mutterkreuz' (mothers' cross) in gold (ie. 'Ehrenkreuz der deutschen Mutter - Erste Stufe') that comes together with and that is still stored in its period-, blue-coloured etui, in overall very nice and IMO only minimally used- ie. worn-, condition. The medal - which comes mounted on its original, somewhat confectioned but IMO almost full-length ie. approximately 70 cms. long-sized - ribbon shows no enamel damage whatsoever and is in a very nice and/or totally uncleaned condition (it is a tiny bit tarnished as can be seen on the pictures). The bright golden-toned finish is simply excellent and the medal has a very nice age and/or fairly bright age-patina. The ribbon is just a tiny bit stained and/or wrinkled (being a sign that the medal was IMO issued and/or minimally worn). The etui is in an equally very nice condition and bears a clear makers'-mark stamped within the lid, namely: 'Friedrich Linden - Lüdenscheid' (see pictures). The yellowish-coloured and/or velvet-based inner lining is also in a very nice and fully undamaged condition. The golden cross design on the top of the box is in an almost complete condition: it shows some minimal age only.
'Ehrenkreuz der deutschen Mutter - Zweite Stufe' (or: silver-class, mothers'-cross) as was produced by the: 'Friedrich Keller'-company that comes packed in its original pouch as issued The award - which comes together with its original, approximately 70 cms. long-sized ribbon ie. 'Bandabschnitt' as issued and/or IMO minimally worn - shows truly no enamel damage whatsoever and is in a nice and naturally totally uncleaned- (ie. somewhat tarnished-) condition. The silver finish is truly excellent and the medal has a nice, somewhat darkened (ie. stained-) age-patina. The ribbon was with certainty once mounted onto the medal and does show some obvious age, wear and/or staining. The blue-coloured- (ie. larger-sized- and/or: 'Zellstoff'-based-) pouch is in an equally very nice and/or undamaged condition and shows a clear makers'-signification on its back (that reads: 'Friedrich Keller - Oberstein').
'Ehrenkreuz des Weltkrieges mit Schwertern des Sächsischen Militär Vereins Bund' (ie. 'S.M.V.B.') that comes together with its original ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') The attractive and bright-golden-toned medal - which is IMO executed in bronze-based metal - shows the shield of the Saschen-province on its front, shows a pair of seperately attached swords and has the abbreviation 'ESW' and/or date: '1914' on its back. These medals were institute in the twenties by the WWI-veteran-organisation: 'S.M.V.B.' and were issued at a limited scale from 1920 to 1922. The piece - which is never cleaned nor polished - comes together with its original, bluish-green-coloured and/or white-striped ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') which is 17 cms. long-sized and that shows some wear, age ie. staining.
'German-made'-pattern breast-badge (ie. 'wings'), being a piece as was intended for usage by a volunteer who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. within the airforce-branch of the: 'Kroatisches Legion' These neat foreign volounteer-related breast-badges - showing a red/white-coloured and 'checkered field' with above the Croatian 'Ustase' character ie. emblem - were worn on the right breast-pocket of the ('Luftwaffe'-style-) tunics and denoted membership within the: 'Kroatisches Legion'. The shield on offer here is neatly woven on typical, Luftwaffe-type wool and was simply never worn nor tunic-attached: it can easily be graded 'mint-/unissued' and is void of any staining nor damage. These genuine, 'official' German-produced-, Croatian breast-badges (ie. of German manufacture) can easily be graded 'fairly rare'.
'Heavy-weight'-version of an 'N.S.D.A.P.-Dienstauszeichnung in Bronze' (ie. '3. Stufe für 10 Jahre treue Dienst'), being a very detailed, albeit non-maker-marked- specimen that comes with its accompanying 'Bandspange' as recently found The neat - and very detailed! - medal comes together with its period-, non-confectioned and/or IMO full length (ie. 24 cms.) long-sized and/or folded ribbon as issued and/or stored for decades. The medal has IMO never been cleaned and retains most of its light-coloured, golden- ie. 'bronze'-like and/or fairly shiny! - finish: it has IMO only minimally used and still retains great pronounced detail. The piece on offer here is a so-called: 'schwere Ausführung' (or heavy-weight version) executed in zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink') that was in this regular set-up normally intended for men. The piece is just a bit dirty ie. dusty and shows some stained areas (mainly on the back) but was never cleaned nor polished: it comes as found. Of additional interest is naturally the fact that this example came with its accompanying 'Bandspange' (which is not that easily encountered by itself). The price is naturally for the two-pieced set!
'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') armband - nice, slightly used & clearly worn condition! This is a very nice example of a clearly worn and slightly used 'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') armband, as worn on the shirts and other youth-related uniforms. The band - which is in confectioned and full-length condition - has a 'interwoven white horizontal stripe' and a separate swastika-badge attached on a red linnen band. The used 'weave-technique' is simply extraordinary. A nice piece that shows character: it is just a bit wrinkled and might need some ironing. This example - which has a total length of 38 cms. - misses its paper 'RzM'-etiket (something that was most certainly caused by regular wear). The armband just shows some minimal staining and wear as to be expected: it also shows some white stitching on the back (most certainly done by the bearer). A nice youth related item!

'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') district-triangle entitled: 'Ost Ostland' still retaining its original 'RzM-etiket' This is a 'male'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in golden-yellow-coloured linnen on a black coloured and also linnen-based, background. This one comes as stated with its period-attached 'RzM-etiket' (see pictures) and is IMO in a virtually mint-/unissued condition. It should be noted that the 'foreign' HJ district-triangles rank amongst the most difficult and rare youth-triangles to encounter or to find. This particular 'HJ'-piece can easily be graded: 'extremely rare'. It should be noted that this is the first - and most likely only - piece I ever had on offer!
'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') district-triangle entitled: 'Süd Hochland' being an example that still retains its (blue-coloured-) 'RzM'-etiket This is a 'male'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in bright-golden-coloured linnen on a black-coloured- (and also linnen-based-) background. This still retains its period-attached 'RzM-etiket' and was IMO clearly tunic- ie. shirt-attached (it does show some minimal age ie. staining, simply caused by fair wear - see pictures).

'BDM' (or: 'Bund Deutscher Mädel') district-triangle entitled: 'Mitte Sachsen' This is a 'female'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in white-coloured linnen on a black-coloured (and also linnen-based-) background. This example is clearly used and/or carefully tunic-removed (it is a tiny bit stained and/or minimally dirty) and misses its (once most certainly present) 'RzM-etiket'. This is one of the more scarcely encountered 'BDM'-district-triangles.
'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') ie. 'BDM' (or: 'Bund Deutscher Mädel') district-triangle entitled: 'Ost Generalgouvernement', that comes with its originally attached, paper-based 'RzM'-etiket This is a 'female'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in white-coloured linnen on a black coloured background. This one comes as stated with its originally attached 'RzM-etiket' ('A-Stück') still in place and is in a virtually mint-/unissued condition. It should be noted that the 'foreign' HJ district-triangles rank amongst the most difficult youth-triangles to encounter or to find. This particular 'BDM'-piece can easily be graded: 'very rare'.

'BDM' (or: 'Bund Deutscher Mädel') district-triangle entitled: 'Ost Wartheland' This is a 'female'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in white-coloured linnen on a black coloured background. This one comes as stated without an attached 'RzM-etiket' (I deem that it never had one) and is IMO minimally worn (some stitching- ie thread-remains are still visible and/or present). It should be noted that the 'foreign' ie. exotic HJ/BDM district-triangles rank amongst the most difficult and rare youth-triangles to encounter or to find. This particular 'BDM'-piece can easily be graded: 'extremely rare'. It should be noted that this is the first - and most likely only - piece I ever had on offer!

'BDM' (or: 'Bund Deutscher Mädel') district-triangle entitled: 'Süd Württemberg' This is a 'female'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in white-coloured linnen on a black coloured (and also linnen-based-) background. This example is clearly used and/or tunic-removed (it is a bit stained and/or minimally dirty) but still retains its paper-based 'RzM-etiket' ('A-Stück'): it has clearly been worn and was neatly shirt-attached by means of three metal-based 'snap-on'-buttons (see pictures). This is one of the more scarcely encountered 'BDM'-district-triangles.
'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') ie. 'BDM' (or: 'Bund Deutscher Mädel') district-triangle entitled: 'Südost Tirol' This is a 'female'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in white-coloured linnen on a black-coloured background. This one misses regrettably its 'RzM-etiket' and was IMO once tunic- ie. shirt-attached. It should be noted that the 'Austrian'-based HJ district-triangles rank amongst the more difficult youth-triangles to encounter. This particular 'BDM'-piece can easily be graded: 'scarce'.

This example is clearly used and/or tunic-removed (it is a bit stained and dirty) and has lost its 'RzM-etiket' over the years: it has clearly been worn and shows some glue- and/or paper-remains on the back (IMO caused of having been glued in an album or scrapbook once).
'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') ie. 'BDM' (or: 'Bund Deutscher Mädel') district-triangle entitled: 'West Moselland' This is a 'female'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in white-coloured linnen on a black-coloured background. This example is IMO in a virtually mint-/unissued condition but misses regrettably its 'RzM-etiket': it was IMO never tunic- ie. shirt-attached.
'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Bronze' (or infantry assault badge (IAB), very converse, unmarked bronze version - used condition! This is a nice albeit clearly used & worn item: an infantry assault badge executed in bronze (IAB) or 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Bronze', as intended for and worn by a soldier of the 'Motorisierte Infanterie' (motorised infantry). This one is not maker-marked and retains a fair bit of its bronze: it was most certainly extensively worn. The pin and catch are present and functional. In any case is it still a nice and desirable bronze IAB: I have priced this one according to its condition!
'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber', being an unmarked (so-called:'pillow-crimped'-) example as executed in silverish-coloured, zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink') This example is a non maker-marked award: it has a 'typical' crimped catch and/or hinge set-up as is more often seen. To date the maker of these attractive 'pillow-crimped' IABs has not been surfaced yet. The badge seems IMO to be totally uncleaned and has a still a very nice and truly shiny silver-coloured age-patina. The pin and/or catch (ie. set-up-) are of course fully functional and/or present. The piece - which originates from a private household were it was recently found - shows hardly any wear but is a tiny bit stained (see pictures): it was however never cleaned nor polished.
'Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen in Silber' (or silver IAB), being a neatly maker- (ie. 'WH'-) marked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) version, as was procuded by the: 'Wilhelm Hobacher'-company The badge is a minimally-vaulted- ie. zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based example that retains most of its period- ie. factory-applied, silver-coloured finish: it has a typical and/or 'fairly tarnished' age-patina as more often seen with IABs by this particular Vienna-based maker. This example comes naturally on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-coloured-) pin which shows a typical mounting and/or catch as to be expected. The piece is very detailed and has a very pronounced appearance: the award has IMO only moderately been used and shows some wear ie. dirt on some the obvious higher-placed areas: it was however most certainly never cleaned nor polished. It originated from a private household in Germany and was never before in collector-hands. The maker of this particular IAB is the: 'Wilhelm Hobacher'-company based in the town of Vienna. The piece retains a clearly visible makers'-mark ie. logo on the back (see pictures). The piece has IMO the looks of a 'Buntmetall'-example but is however executed in zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'). It should be noted that these WH-marked IAB-'variants' can easily be graded 'scarce'.
'Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen in Silber' (or silver IAB), being a non-maker-marked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) version, as was procuded by a to date still unidentified maker The attractive badge is a nicely vaulted-/converse-shaped ie. zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based example that retains most of its period- ie. factory-applied, silver-coloured finish: it has a typical and/or 'fairly tarnished' age-patina as more often seen with IABs. This example comes naturally on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-coloured-) pin which shows a typical mounting and/or welded-on catch as to be expected. The piece is very detailed and has a very pronounced appearance: the award has IMO only minimally been used and shows some minimal wear ie. dirt on some the obvious higher-placed areas: it was however most certainly never cleaned nor polished. It originated from a private household in Germany and was never before in collector-hands. The maker of this particular IAB is not yet determined and is known as the 'egg-head'-variant. The piece has IMO the looks of a 'Buntmetall'-example but is however executed in zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'). An attractive example!
'Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen in Silber' (or silver IAB), being a non-maker-marked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) version, as was procuded by the maker 'Juncker' The badge is a minimally-vaulted- ie. zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based example that retains most of its period- ie. factory-applied, silver-coloured finish: it has a typical and/or 'fairly tarnished' age-patina as more often seen with IABs. This example comes naturally on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-coloured-) pin which shows a typical mounting and/or welded-on catch as to be expected. The piece is very detailed and has a very pronounced appearance: the award has IMO only moderately been used and shows some wear ie. dirt on some the obvious higher-placed areas: it was however most certainly never cleaned nor polished. It originated from a private household in Germany and was never before in collector-hands. The maker of this particular IAB is with certainty the famous 'Juncker'-company based in Berlin. The piece has IMO the looks of a 'Buntmetall'-example but is however executed in zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink').
'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1.Klasse mit Schwerter', being a maker- (ie. '1'-) marked-) specimen as produced by the: 'Deschler u. Sohn'-company This is a specimen of the WWII-period, so-called: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1.Klasse mit Schwerter' (or war-merits cross 1st class with swords) being an example that was produced by the: 'Deschler u. Sohn' company, in an overall very nice (ie. IMO stonemint-/unissued-) condition. The award is - as stated above - a very attractive, maker-marked- and/or 'Buntmetall'- (ie. 'Tombak-') based specimen that was simply never used nor issued. The medal - which is as stated above a maker- (ie. '1'-) marked example - has a partly shiny age-patina but does also retains most of its shiny-, polished sides (ie. 'Hochpolierte Kanten'). This example shows minimal age ie. staining, simply caused by decades of (somewhat wet?) storage. The piece - which most certainly originates from the famous 'Deschler u. Sohn'-hoard that was uncovered some years ago - has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished and therefore are details and/or finish still very nice and/or crisp. It came still packed in its period piece of thin-shaped- and/or beige-coloured 'wrapping-paper' as delivered by the producing company. Simply a nice occasion to acquire a minty albeit minimally tarnished 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1.Klasse mit Schwerter'-cross for an IMO very competitive price!
'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1.Klasse mit Schwerter', being a maker- (ie. '1'-) marked-) specimen as produced by the: 'Deschler u. Sohn'-company This is a specimen of the WWII-period, so-called: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1.Klasse mit Schwerter' (or war-merits cross 1st class with swords) being an example that was produced by the: 'Deschler u. Sohn' company, in an overall very nice (ie. IMO stonemint-/unissued-) condition. The award is - as stated above - a very attractive, maker-marked- and/or 'Buntmetall'- (ie. 'Tombak-') based specimen that was simply never used nor issued. The medal - which is as stated above a maker- (ie. '1'-) marked example - has a partly shiny age-patina but does also retains most of its shiny-, polished sides (ie. 'Hochpolierte Kanten'). This example shows minimal age ie. staining, simply caused by decades of (somewhat wet?) storage. The piece - which most certainly originates from the famous 'Deschler u. Sohn'-hoard that was uncovered some years ago - has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished and therefore are details and/or finish still very nice and/or crisp. It came still packed in its period piece of thin-shaped- and/or beige-coloured 'wrapping-paper' as delivered by the producing company. Simply a nice occasion to acquire a minty albeit minimally tarnished 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1.Klasse mit Schwerter'-cross for an IMO very competitive price
'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse mit Schwerter' (or war merits' cross 2nd class with swords), being a maker- (ie. '55'-) marked example as was produced by the: 'J.E. Hammer & Söhne'-company The example is a golden-bronze-toned- (and/or IMO zinc- ie 'Feinzink'-based-) example that comes together with its full-length (ie. 29 cms. long-sized-) and/or unconfectioned ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt'). The award - which bears the makers'-designation: '55' stamped in its ring - was with certainty issued but actually never worn ie. used. The neatly (darker-) golden-toned-, bronze finish and detail are still very nice and bright: the piece truly retains almost all of its original finish but shows some darkened tarnish (ie. dirt) mainly on its back.
'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse mit Schwerter' (or war merits' cross 2nd class with swords), being a maker- (ie. '6'-) marked example as was produced by the: 'C.F. Zimmermann'-company The example is a golden-bronze-toned- (and/or IMO 'Buntmetall'-based-) example that comes together with its full-length (ie. 29 cms. long-sized-) and/or unconfectioned ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt'). The award - which bears the makers'-designation: '6' stamped in its ring - was with certainty issued but actually never worn ie. used. The neatly (darker-) golden-toned-, bronze finish and detail are still very nice and bright: the piece truly retains almost all of its original finish.
'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse mit Schwerter' (or war merits' cross 2nd class with swords), being a non-maker-marked example The example is a golden-bronze-toned- (and/or IMO 'Buntmetall'-based-) example that comes together with its full-length (ie. 29 cms. long-sized-) and/or unconfectioned ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt'). The award - which is void of any makers'-designation - was with certainty issued but actually never worn ie. used. The neatly (darker-) golden-toned-, bronze finish and detail are still very nice and bright: the piece truly retains almost all of its original finish.

'Luftschutz-Ehrenzeichen 2. Stufe' (or: air-raid warden medal) being an 'regular-weight'-, zinc-based version that is neatly maker-marked: '60' (= 'Katz & Doehle') and that comes packed in its original pouch of issue The zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based medal comes as stated above together with its (fully unconfectioned albeit folded and/or approximately 20 cms. long-) ribbon and is in a very nice (totally uncleaned) condition overall (it shows a faily shiny 'zinc' age-patina as is more often observed). The pouch - which is actually scarce to come by! - is in an equally nice condition (it is of course fully functional and/or complete but shows some usage ie. tears on the sides simply caused by storage and/or decades of handling). The ring is as stated neatly stamped with the makers’-designation- ie. mark: '60': signifying that the piece was produced by the: 'Katz u. Doehle' company based in the town of Pforzheim (something that is also clearly printed on the ('Zellstoff'-based-) pouch as to be expected). Simply a very nice and compelte 'RLB'-medal set: almost impossible to upgrade this example!
'Nahkampfspange in Bronze' (close combat clasp or CCC), as prouced by: 'F & BL' - clearly used & worn condition! This is a 'Nahkampfspange in Bronze' (or close combat clasp ie. CCC), as produced by the: 'F & BL'-company, in clearly used & worn condition. The piece is executed in bronze-coloured so-called 'Feinzink'. The piece - which has a very detailed & fine appearance - is nicely maker-marked: 'F & BL' (signifying that it was produced by the 'Funke u. Bruninghaus' company) and has all the details of a fine original piece as produced by this particular maker. The - flute-shaped - pin and catch are fully functional. The badge has regrettably lost most of its original bronze finish (which has IMO simply faded over the years): just the right side shows finish). The iron back-plate is also present. The piece shows no zinc damage whatsoever and is in overall very fine and detailed condition. It is also truly 'converse shaped'. Simply a nice original piece that IMO is priced according to its condition!
'Nahkampfspange in Bronze' (or bronze close-combat clasp ie. CCC), being a neatly maker- (ie. 'JFS'-) marked- and/or fairly converse version The piece - which has a very detailed and/or pronounced appearance - is as stated a neatly maker-marked version bearing the makers'-signification (ie. logo): 'JFS', denoting that this is a piece that was produced by the: 'Joseph Feix u. Söhne'-company based in the town of Gablonz. The 'Spange' is as stated neatly converse-shaped and shows a flute-shaped - and/or copper-toned - pin (and or typical catch-/catch-set-up), both which are of course still functional and/or unaltered nor repaired. The clasp - which is naturally of unquestionable originality - retains most of its original fairly dark-coloured, bronze-toned finish and IMO never been cleaned nor polished: it shows some regular age- ie. minimal wear-marks as to be expected. The 'crimped' (neatly bluish-coloured- ie. blackened-) metal back-plate is naturally also present and in place (but does show a few scratches as probably period-done by the recipient - see pictures). The piece was found as such at a private household and was never before in a collection.

'Nahkampfspange in Bronze' (or bronze close-combat clasp ie. CCC), being a neatly maker- (ie.: 'C.F. Juncker'-) marked- and/or non-vaulted example This 'Spange' is a non-converse-shaped version- (as to be expected with CCCs by the maker: 'C.F. Juncker'-company based in Berlin) and shows a neat flute-shaped - and/or copper-toned - pin (and or typical catch-/catch-set-up), both which are of course still functional (and/or totally undamaged). The attractive clasp - which is naturally of unquestionable originality and which is only moderately used ie. worn - retains most of its original-applied, golden-bronze-toned finish (ie. 'Brennlack') and was IMO never cleaned nor polished: it shows some regular age- ie. wear-marks as to be expected. Moreover is it still quite dirty (but was never cleaned nor polished). The 'crimped' metal-based back-plate is naturally also present and is firmly in place. The piece was recently found as such at a private household and was never before in a collection. It should be noted that CCCs as produced by the: 'C.F. Juncker'-company are very desirable and can easily be graded 'fairly scarce'.
'Nahkampfspange in Bronze' (or bronze close-combat clasp ie. CCC), being a neatly maker-marked- version by: 'A.G.M.u.K.' (or: 'Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Metall- u. Kunststoff') The piece - which has still a very detailed and/or pronounced appearance - is as stated a neatly maker-marked version bearing the makers'-signification: 'A.G.M.u.K.', denoting that it deals with a piece as was produced by the: 'Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Metall- u. Kunststoff'-company based in the town of Gablonz. The 'Spange' shows a neat flute-shaped - and/or copper-toned - pin (and or typical catch-/catch-set-up), both which are of course still functional (and/or are totally undamaged). The clasp - which is naturally of unquestionable originality - truly retains most of its original golden-bronze-toned finish and IMO never been cleaned nor polished: it shows some minimal age- ie. wear-marks as to be expected. Moreover is it a tiny bit dirty (but was never cleaned- nor polished). The 'crimped'- and black-coloured metal-based 'back-plate' is naturally also present and firmly in place. The piece was recently found as such at a private household and was never before in a collection. A CCC in this beautiful condition can easily be graded 'scarce': I deem that I priced this example according to its nice and/or fully untouched condition!
'Nahkampfspange in Silber' (or silver close-combat clasp ie. CCC), being a neatly maker-marked- version by: 'A.G.M.u.K.' (or: 'Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Metall- u. Kunststoff') The piece - which has still a very detailed and/or pronounced appearance - is as stated a neatly maker-marked version bearing the makers'-signification: 'A.G.M.u.K.', denoting that it deals with a piece as was produced by the: 'Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Metall- u. Kunststoff'-company based in the town of Gablonz. The 'Spange' shows a neat flute-shaped - and/or silver-toned - pin (and or typical catch-/catch-set-up), both which are of course still functional (and/or are totally undamaged). The clasp - which is naturally of unquestionable originality - has lost most of its original silver-toned finish as is more often the case with these zinc (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based examples but has IMO never been cleaned nor polished: it shows some minimal age- ie. wear-marks as to be expected. Moreover is it a tiny bit dirty (but was never cleaned- nor polished). The 'crimped'- and/or truly bluish-coloured metal-based 'back-plate' is naturally also present and firmly in place. The piece was recently found as such at a private household and was never before in a collection. A silver-class CCC in this beautiful condition can easily be graded 'scarce': I deem that I priced this example according to its nice and/or fully untouched condition!
'Organisationsbuch der N.S.D.A.P.', being a not often seen 1st edition (ie.: '1. Auflage'), dated: '1936' As most likely known are these officially published - and very desirable! - manuals the 'standard'- (and truly most complete!) period-publications covering the subject matter. The mid-sized book (sized: 22 x 15 x 4,5 cms.) retains all its 551 (!) pages full of topic-related information and numerous (colourfull!) illustrations, covering flags, insignia, uniforms, organigrams and/or awards (and much more!) as used within the Nazi-party (and all other organisations such as DAF, SA, SS etc.) around the year 1936. The example on offer here retains an (almost undamaged-) red-coloured and/or linnen-based binding and shows an embossed (silver-coloured-) eagle-device and text on its cover (as can be seen on the photos). The (actually quite fragile-) book is truly in a great condition overall and was IMO only moderately used: it just shows some minimal age- ie. staining caused by its age of almost 75 years. It should be noted that these very early ie. '1936'-dated examples can be easily considered 'scarce'. Only the second such neat N.S.D.A.P.-related item with this date which I ever had on offer!
'Panzerkampfabzeichen in Bronze' (or bronze panzer assault badge or PAB), being a neat, semi-hollow-, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based and/or maker- (ie. 'AS in triangle'-) marked version as was procuced by a to date still unknown maker The badge on offer here concerns an (IMO later-war-period-) zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based specimen that has only lost some of its bronze-coloured finish: the piece has a somewhat 'darkened' ie. zinc-like- appearance, simply caused by having been moderately worn. The badge has IMO never been cleaned nor polished (and is still also a tiny bit dirty ie. stained- ie. tarnished as mentioned above). As stated above is the piece a neat maker-marked example (as more often by this specific maker) that shows various characteristics - such as for example the typical tin-shaped pin and/or also typical, ball-shaped pin-set-up - as seen with PABs as produced by this unknown maker: it deals with a so-called: 'semi-hollow-, unknown maker example' (as uniquely numbered with the reference-number: '3.3.2.' according to the excellent reference-work entitled: 'The Panzer-Assault badge of WWII' by my Belgian friend Philippe de Bock). The neat piece - which is very pronounced and has naturally great pronounced detail - naturally shows all the details as to be expected for a badge by this particular maker. Simply a nice and honest bronze-class PAB in an overall very nice and moderately worn condition!
'Panzerkampfabzeichen in Bronze' (or bronze panzer assault badge or PAB), being a neat, semi-hollow-, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based and/or maker- (ie. 'L/53'-) marked version as was procuced by the: 'Hymmen & Co.'-company The badge on offer here concerns an (IMO later-war-period-) zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based specimen that has lost some of its bronze-coloured finish: the piece has a somewhat 'darkened' ie. zinc-like- appearance, simply caused by having been moderately worn. The badge has IMO never been cleaned nor polished (and is still also a tiny bit dirty ie. stained- ie. tarnished as mentioned above). As stated is the piece a neat maker-marked example (as more often by this specific maker) that shows various characteristics - such as for example the typical tin-shaped pin and/or typically-shaped pin-set-up - typically seen with PABs as produced by the: 'Hymmen & Co.'-company based in the town of Lüdenscheid: it deals with a so-called: 'semi-hollow-, high-maker-marked'-example (as uniquely numbered with the reference-number: '2.2.4' according to the excellent reference-work entitled: 'The Panzer-Assault badge of WWII' by my Belgian friend Philippe de Bock). The neat piece - which is very pronounced and has naturally great pronounced detail - naturally shows all the details as to be expected for a badge by this particular maker. It originated from a private address in Germany and was never before in a collection. Simply a nice and honest bronze-class PAB in an overall very nice and moderately worn condition!
'Panzerkampfabzeichen in Bronze' (or bronze panzer-assault badge or PAB), being a neat zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) semi-hollow version as was procuced by the: 'Adolf Scholze' (ie. 'AS') company The award on offer here concerns an (IMO mid-war-period-) very detailed and/or zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based specimen that retains most of its bright golden-toned- (ie. light bronze-) coloured finish: the piece has a somewhat 'golden-toned' appearance, showing some shiny highlighted areas as to be expected. The badge has IMO never been cleaned nor polished (and is still also a tiny bit dirty ie. stained- ie. tarnished as mentioned above). As stated is the piece a neat maker-marked example that shows the various characteristics - such as for example the typical tin-shaped pin and/or typically-shaped pin-set-up - as only seen on PABs as produced by the: 'Adolf Scholze' (ie. 'AS') company based in the town of Gablonz: it deals with a so-called: 'semi-hollow piece' (as uniquely numbered with the reference-number: '3.1.4.' according to the excellent reference-work entitled: 'The Panzer-Assault badge of WWII' by my Belgian friend Philippe de Bock). The neat piece - which is very pronounced and has naturally great pronounced detail - naturally shows all the details as to be expected for a badge by this particular maker. It was found as such at a German flea-market and was never before in a collection.
'Panzerkampfabzeichen in Silber' (or silver panzer assault badge or PAB), being a neat zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based and/or maker- (ie. 'HA'-) marked version as was procuced by the: 'Hermann Aurich'-company The badge on offer here concerns an (IMO mid-war-period-) zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based specimen that has lost some of its silver-coloured finish: the piece has a somewhat 'darkened' ie. zinc-like- appearance, simply caused by having been moderately worn. The badge has IMO never been cleaned nor polished (and is still also a tiny bit dirty ie. stained- ie. tarnished as mentioned above). As stated is the piece a neat maker-marked example (as more often by this specific maker) that shows various characteristics - such as for example the typical tin-shaped pin and/or typically-shaped pin-set-up - typically seen with PABs as produced by the: 'Hermann Aurich' (ie. 'HA') company based in the town of Dresden: it deals with a so-called: 'solid zinc piece' (as uniquely numbered with the reference-number: '1.8.1' according to the excellent reference-work entitled: 'The Panzer-Assault badge of WWII' by my Belgian friend Philippe de Bock). The neat piece - which is very pronounced and has naturally great pronounced detail - naturally shows all the details as to be expected for a badge by this particular maker. It originated from a private address in Germany and was never before in a collection. Simply a nice and honest silver-class PAB in an overall very nice and moderately worn condition!
'Patriotic' (and/or possibly N.S.D.A.P.-) related, metal-based (ie. silver-coloured- and/or IMO genuine silver-based-) 'souvenir'-ring depicting a swastika-design and two eagles on the sides The neat (and with certainty male-type- and/or large-sized-) finger-ring is IMO executed in genuine silver and retains pronounced detail. It is void of any makers'-mark and shows a (dual!) '800' silver-contents-mark (as more often encountered). The ring is clearly worn ie. used (it is still a bit tarnished and was with certainty never cleaned nor polished). The detail on the swastika-device is however fully preserved and void of any damage or alike (see pictures). These 'souvenir'-rings could be privately purchased in specialised shops (and/or canteens) and were very popular amongst the troops.
'Patriotic' (and/or possibly Waffen-SS ie. 'Nordland'-) related, metal-based (ie. silver-coloured- and/or IMO genuine silver-based-) 'souvenir'-ring depicting a mobile swastika-design The neat (and with certainty male-type- and/or large-sized-) finger-ring is IMO executed in genuine silver and retains pronounced detail. It is void of any makers'-mark and also does not show a '800' silver-contents- mark (as more often encountered). The ring is clearly worn ie. used (it is still a bit tarnished and was with certainty never cleaned nor polished). The detail on the mobile swastika-device (being the divisional sign for the 'Nordland'-division) is however fully preserved and void of any damage or alike (see pictures). These 'souvenir'-rings could be privately purchased in specialised shops (and/or canteens) and were very popular amongst the troops.
'Patriotic', WWI-related, metal-based (ie. silver-/copper coloured- and/or IMO copper- ie. zinc-based-) 'souvenir'-ring depicting a WWI-period, 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' The neat (and with certainty male-type- and/or large-sized-) finger-ring is IMO executed in a combination of copper- and/or zinc-based metal and still shows great pronounced detail. It is void of any makers'-mark and is clearly worn ie. used (it is still a bit tarnished and was with certainty never cleaned nor polished). The detail on the (separately attached) EKII-device is nice preserved and void of any real damage or alike: it is just a bit dirty ie. stained by wear and/or decades of storage (see pictures). These 'souvenir'-rings could be privately purchased in specialised shops (and/or canteens) and were very popular amongst the troops.
'Polizei' (ie. police), hand-embroidered example of an officers’-type arm-eagle The arm-eagle - which truly shows great pronounced detail! - is a clear example of the ’high standard’ hand-embroidery used at the time: the craftmanship is simply stunning and/or very pronouned. The piece is executed in various shades of (glossy!) silver-coloured ’braid ’ and still retains its period-attached, black-coloured- and paper-based ’backing’ (see pictures). It does show some minor wear and/or age and still shows some minimal stitching-remains with which it was once tunic-attached: it is however fully undamaged. These decorative, hand-embroidered officers’-type, 'Polizei'-arm-eagles can easily be graded: ’scarce’.
'Polizei' (police), alumimium-based-, enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCO- or officers') type cap-eagle, being a non-maker-marked example This is an attractive - and nowadays not that easily encountered! - 'Polizei', alumimium-based-, enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCO- and/or officers-) type cap-eagle (ie. 'Adler für Schirmmützen'), in overall very nice, IMO virtually mint-/unissued-, condition. The piece is as stated above not marker-marked nor dated and is of course in a fully functional condition. Naturally are both (copper-based-) prongs present and/or fully functional: they were IMO never bent ie. folded and are of course still functional. The eagle - which is very detailed - has a nice so-called: 'frosted' ie. truly aluminium appearance.
'Postschutz' arm-badge ie. arm-eagle being a piece as executed in the 'BeVo'-weave-pattern The attractive arm-badge - which is executed in light-grey-coloured linnen on a greyish-coloured background and which is executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave-pattern - was clearly used and/or carefully tunic-removed: it was neatly trimmed- and/or pre-folded and comes as carefully tunic-removed. It does show some obvious age- ie. minimal staining and still shows the signs of having been once tunic-attached (see pictures). The 'Postschutz'-organisation (which can literally be translated as 'postal security-service') is one of the smaller-sized TR-era organisations that fell under the jurisdiction of the SS and about which little is known to date: its 'political' i.e. police-related nature is also underlined by the left-facing eagle. I have seen these also having a bright-orange-coloured (interwoven) border, something that can be looked-up in the archive-section of the web-site: this example does not show this border (something that might deal with the function ie. rank of the official). These 'Postschutz'-arm-eagles can easily be graded 'very rare'.
'Regular-weight' air-raid warden medal ('Luftschutz-Ehrenzeichen 2.Stufe') that is maker-marked: '60' (= 'Katz & Doehle') and comes in its original pouch of issue - nice, slightly used (almost mint!) condition! This is a neat, regulat-weight version, of the zinc-based ('Feinzink') medal as issued and intended for air-raid wardens 2nd. class ('Luftschutz-Ehrenzeichen 2.Stufe'). The medal comes on its (confectioned and 20 cms. long) ribbon - which shows some minor wrinkles - and is in very nice (uncleaned) condition overall. The pouch - which is scarce to come by! - is in used condition and shows some minor wear and folding-marks. The ring is stamped: '60': signifying that the piece was produced by the 'Katz u. Doehle' company based in Pforzheim (something that is also printed on the pouch). The set still retains also its thin 'wrapping'-paper. Simply a very nice 'RLB'- medal set!

The pouch - which is scarce to come by! - is in a used & somewhat wrinkled condition and shows some minor wear and folding-marks (it is of course functional and complete). The ring is stamped: '60': signifying that the piece was produced by the 'Katz u. Doehle' company based in Pforzheim (something that is also printed on the pouch). Simply a nice and compelte 'RLB'-medal set!

'Regular-weight'-version of an 'N.S.D.A.P.-Dienstauszeichnung in Bronze' (ie. '3. Stufe für 10 Jahre treue Dienst'), being a very detailed and/or maker- (ie. '8'-) marked- specimen as was produced by the maker: 'Ferdinand Hoffstätter' The neat - and very detailed! - medal comes together with its period-, non-confectioned and/or IMO full length (ie. 24 cms.) long-sized and/or folded ribbon as issued and/or stored for decades. The medal has IMO never been cleaned and retains most ie. all of its light-coloured, golden- ie. 'bronze'-like and/or fairly shiny! - finish: it has IMO only minimally used and still retains great pronounced detail. The piece - which is a maker- (ie. '8'-) marked- specimen as was produced by the (usually seen!) maker: 'Ferdinand Hoffstätter' based in the town of Bonn - is a so-called: 'schwere Ausführung' (or heavy-weight version) executed in zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink') that was in this regular set-up normally intended for men. It bears the impressed maker-mark: '8' in the ring. The piece is just a bit dirty ie. dusty and shows some stained areas but was never cleaned nor polished: it comes as recently found.
'Reichsarbeitsdienst der weiblichen Jugend' (or: RADwJ ie.: Womens Labor Service) so-called: 'Erinnerungsbrosche' (or commemorative brooch), being a maker- (ie. 'An.G.'-) marked example as was executed in zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink') The neat brooch still retains stunning detail and comes of course mounted on its functional pin and/or catch (set-up). The brooch - which is a regular-weight version - is as stated a non-maker-marked example that was IMO only minimally worn: it was never cleaned nor polished and retains a nice (typical zinc-based-) age-patina, showing some normal age, wear and/or staining. I deem that this attractive RADwJ-badge is accordingly priced!
'Reichsarbeitsdienst' (ie. RAD) men's 'Dienstauszeichnung 4. Stufe', as intended for 4 years loyal-service, that comes mounted on its period piece of ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') The award - being of the 'light-weight'- ie. aluminium-based- version - truly retains gorgeous details and has a great ie. somewhat darkened age-patina: it retains all of its 'glossy' golden-bronze-toned finish and has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished. The piece comes mounted on its period-shortened piece (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') of cornflower-blue coloured ribbon (which is neatly folded and measures approximately 9,2 cms. in length). The ribbon still retains its copper-toned clip (mounted for easily wearing the piece on a tunic). This particular award can easily be graded: 'mint-/unissued'.
'Reichssportabzeichen DRL in Bronze' (or: DRL sports'-badge in bronze), that is nicely maker- (ie. 'Wernstein - Jena'-) marked on the back The badge is of the version with swastika and retains almost all of its (minimally darkened-, golden-bronze-coloured-) finish. As stated is the badge nicely maker-marked: 'Wernstein/Jena' and bears the 'DRGM' text and/or number on the back, as usually encountered. The badge was IMO never cleaned nor polished and retains a fairly darkened (ie. somewhat dirty-) age-patina.

As stated is the badge nicely maker-marked: 'Wernstein/Jena' and bears the 'DRGM' text and/or number on the back, as usually encountered. The badge was IMO once cleaned ie. polished but nevertheless retains it a fairly darkened (ie. somewhat dirty-) age-patina.

'Wernstein - Jena'-) marked on the back The badge is of the version with swastika and retains almost all of its (minimally darkened-, golden-bronze-coloured-) finish. As stated is the badge nicely maker-marked: 'Wernstein/Jena' and bears the 'DRGM' text and/or number on the back, as usually encountered. The badge was IMO once cleaned ie. polished but nevertheless retains it a fairly darkened (ie. somewhat dirty-) age-patina.
'Reichssportabzeichen DRL' - silver class - maker-marked: 'Wernstein' - used condition! This is a nice example of the German sports-badge ('Reichssportabzeichen') DRL executed in silver. This is the version with swastika. The badge was IMO once cleaned and has lost some of its silver finish. The badge is nicely maker-marked: 'Wernstein - Jena' & 'DRGM' as more often encountered. Both pin & catch are naturally functional. A nice - and actually not that easy to find - badge: I have priced this one according to its condition.
'Reichssportabzeichen DRL' bronze class - nice condition! This is a nice example of the German sports-badge ('Reichssportabzeichen') DRL in bronze. This is the version with swastika. The bronze finish is almost 100% and the badge is nicely maker-marked: 'Wernstein/Jena' and bears the 'DRGM' text and number, as usual. The badge was never polished nor cleaned and has a fairly darkened age patina. Simply a very nice 'DRL-sportsbadge'!
'Reichssportabzeichen DRL' bronze class - unmarked 'variant' - very nice condition! This is a very nice example of the German sports-badge ('Reichssportabzeichen') DRL executed in bronze. This is the version with swastika. The bronze finish is almost 100% and strangely is the badge not maker-marked nor does it bear the (usual) 'DRGM' patent-pending text and number as usual: I do not know the reason for this. The badge was never polished nor cleaned and has a fairly darkened age patina. Simply a very nice 'DRL-sportsbadge' that cannot be upgraded. The previous owner has engraved his initials in the badge: 'RM'. This is the first such 'unmarked' DRL badge I have ever encountered!

'Reichssportabzeichen DRL' bronze class by 'Wernstein' - very nice condition! This is a very nice example of the German sports-badge ('Reichssportabzeichen') DRL in bronze. This is the version without swastika (which is actually more hard to find!). The bronze finish is almost 100% and the badge is nicely maker-marked: 'Wernstein/Jena' and bears the 'DRGM' text and number as usual. The badge was never polished nor cleaned and has a fairly darkened age patina (almost dark-chocolate brown!). Simply a very nice 'DRL-sportsbadge': hard to find a better example!
'SA Sportabzeichen in Bronze', being a nicely maker- (ie. 'E. Schneider'-) marked example that bears a unique, engraved bearers-number that reads: '360961' on the back The - IMO fairly early-period - badge is as stated nicely maker-marked on the back with the makers'-signification: 'E. Schneider' as based in the town of Lüdenscheid and also bears the usually encountered inscription: 'Eigentum d. SA-Sportabzeichen Hauptstelle'. The badge - which comes naturally mounted on its functional pin- (ie. catch-) set-up - only shows some minor wear but was IMO never cleaned nor polished: the original bronze (and/or fairly 'glossy'!) finish is mostly present and/or neatly preserved. It is just a bit stained ie. dirty caused by moderate wear.

'SA Sportabzeichen', bronze class, nicely maker-marked: 'Berg & Nolte - Lüdenscheid' - clearly used & worn condition! This is a decent example of the German 'SA-Sportabzeichen' (sports-badge) in bronze, in clearly used and worn condition. The badge is nicely maker-marked: 'Berg & Nolte - Lüdenscheid' and also bears the inscription: 'Eigentum d. SA-Sportabzeichen Hauptstelle'. The badge shows some minor wear but was never cleaned: the original bronze finish is IMO completely present but shows some slight corrosion. It is also individually numbered: '797871'. An honest example that I have priced according to its condition!

The badge is nicely maker-marked: 'Berg & Nolte - Lüdenscheid' and also bears the inscription: 'Eigentum d. SA-Sportabzeichen Hauptstelle'. The badge shows some minor wear but was IMO never cleaned: the original bronze ('glossy') finish is still partly present but shows some slight corrosion. It is also individually numbered: '843941'. Simply an honest example that I have priced according to its condition!

This is a very nice example of the German 'SA-Sportabzeichen' (sports-badge) in darkened bronze, in slightly used and worn condition. The badge is nicely maker-marked: 'Berg & Nolte - Lüdenscheid' and also bears the inscription: 'Eigentum d. SA-Sportabzeichen Hauptstelle'. The badge shows some minor wear (and dirty areas on the back) but was IMO never cleaned: the original (quite darkened!) bronze (and 'glossy') finish is fully present and shows only moderate wear and usage. The piece comes naturally on its functional pin-/catch set-up. Simply an honest example that is hard to upgrade!
'SA Sportabzeichen', bronze class, nicely maker-marked: 'Fechler', based in Bernsbach - clearly used & worn condition! This is a decent example of the German 'SA-Sportabzeichen' (or sports-badge) in bronze, being a maker-marked version in clearly used and/or worn condition. The badge is nicely maker-marked on the back: 'Fechler', based in Bernsbach and also bears the inscription: 'Eigentum d. SA-Sportabzeichen Hauptstelle'. The badge shows obvious wear ie. age but was never cleaned: the original bronze finish for a vast part present but shows some wear ie. age. It comes on its functional pin- ie. catch(set-up). An honest example that I have priced according to its condition!
'SA Sportabzeichen', bronze class, that is clearly maker-marked on the back: 'Fechler - Bernsbach' - overall nice albeit clearly used & worn condition! This is a neat example of the German 'SA-Sportabzeichen' (SA sports-badge) executed in bronzed metal, overall nice albeit clearly used & worn condition. The badge is nicely maker-marked on the back: 'Fechler - Bernsbach’ but is void of a bearers' number (which is not uncommon and more often observed with these ‘Fechler’ produced badges). On the back of the sword the text: 'Eigentum der Oberste SA Führung' can be encountered. The badge shows some regular to minor wear and has most of its original bronze finish still in place. The piece has IMO been cleaned ie. polished and has now a somewhat ‘shiny’ appearance. Simply a nice and honest example that is accordingly priced!
'SA Sportabzeichen', bronze class, that is clearly maker-marked on the back: 'R.Sieper u.Söhne' - clearly used & worn condition! This is a clearly used and worn example of the German 'SA-Sportabzeichen' (SA sports-badge) executed in bronzed metal, overall nice albeit clearly used and/or worn condition. The badge is nicely maker-marked on the back: 'R.Sieper u.Söhne' and also shows the text: 'Eigentum der Oberste SA Führung' but is void of a bearers' number (which is not uncommon and more often observed with these by ‘Sieper’ produced badges). The badge shows heavy wear and has lost most of its original bronze finish (just visible on the back). The piece has IMO most certainly been cleaned ie. polished and has now a somewhat ‘shiny’ appearance. Still an honest & genuine example that is accordingly priced!
'SA' (= 'Sturmabteilungen') civil attire badge (or 'Zivilabzeichen') that comes on its long-sized pin, bearing a patent-pending marking ('Ges.Gesch.') on the back - nice, albeit clearly used and worn condition! This is a 'SA' (= 'Sturmabteilungen') civil attire badge (or 'Zivilabzeichen') that comes on its long-sized pin, bearing a patent-pending marking ('Ges.Gesch.') on the back, in overall nice, albeit clearly used and worn condition. The piece has lost its silverish finish and was most certainly cleaned over the years. Still a nice and 'SA'-item that is IMO accordinly priced!
'SA'- (ie. 'N.S.D.A.P.'- or: 'Wehrmannschaften') related (IMO officers'-type) 'M43'-pattern cap (or: 'Tuchmütze'), having a brownish-coloured-, 'BeVo'-woven SA-type cap-eagle originally attached The cap - which is a fair sized example that is sized: '57 cms.' as is clearly ink-stamped in the lining - is truly 'text-book' in all facets (all specifations of a fine, original 'M43' type-cap are present). The lining is of the 'text-book' and fairly rough-shaped, mustard-green-coloured linnen. The cap - which itself is executed in the typical 'mustard-green'-coloured wool - is void of an 'RzM'-etiket or label as sometimes found (this was with certainty never there). It is also void of a markers'-mark and just shows its size (ie. being '57'). The cap-triangle - which is facing right thus being IMO an 'SA-type' cap-eagle - is executed in neat so-called: 'flat-wire'-style 'BeVo'-weave pattern: it has a darker brownish-coloured background, IMO signifying that it belonged to a soldier of the: 'Gruppe Mittelrhein' ie. 'Niedersachsen'. I deem that the piece was intended for an officer: the silver-coloured piping at the top underlines this assumption. The 'BeVo'-type eagle is attached to the cap by means of a machine (it was attached to the cap before it was assembled as can be seen on the pictures). The cap is void of any damage whatsoever and retains all its woolen-based napping: the cap can easily be graded 'mint-/unissued' and is simply impossible to be upgraded. I assume that this cap was IMO possibly used by an officer that belonged to the SA-related 'Wehrmannschaften': another possibility is that it deals with a cap that was worn by an official within the obscure 'Ostministerium' or alike. In any case is this an attractive, and 100% genuine 'M43'-pattern cap that can be easily be graded: 'very scarce': I deem that this neat example merits further investigative work!
'Sonderabzeichen für das Niederkämpfen von Panzerkampfwagen usw. durch Einzelkämpfer in Silber' (or tank-destruction badge ie. TDB in silver) in overall nice (albeit clearly worn ie. tunic-removed-) condition The neat piece on offer here is an attractive - and truly detailed! - example, showing a blackened- ie. silvered (and/or magnetic!) tank-badge mounted on its original piece of 'woven', silver-/black woven cloth ie. braid. The piece still retains its original (three) prongs and/or metal back-plate (hidden under a piece of blue-coloured- and/or smooth-woolen- (ie. felt-) based cloth (as more often) and was most certainly (carefully!) tunic-removed: it still shows some minimal stitching-remains of once having been tunic-attached. The blackened (ie. 'Buntmetal'-based) tank shows some minimal staining but was IMO not cleaned nor polished. The piece came from a private household in Germany and was stored as such for decades. I am of course aware of the fact that this is (probably) one of the most copied awards of the TR-period: this is naturally a 100% genuine and truly worn example for which I do give a life-time garuantee (as always). I deem that I have priced this neat award accordingly to its desirability and/or unmistaken rarity!

'SS' (ie. 'Waffen-SS') IMO mid-war type-, so-called: 'hand-embroidered' NCO-pattern collar-tab, as was intended for usage by the various Waffen-SS NCOs throughout the war The very attractive piece was with certainty once tunic-attached and has a brownish, 'buckram-based' backing as to be expected: it still shows some thread-remains of having been once tunic-attached. The collar-tab is executed in shiny, silver-coloured-, 'hand-embroidered' braid on a smooth woolen-based background: the awesome craftmenship and/or embroidery-technique is simply stunning. As stated has the piece clearly been worn and shows moderate age, wear and/or staining: the tab still shows the signs (and as stated thread-remains) of once having been tunic-attached. Simply a very nice and 100% guaranteed original 'hand-embroidered' Waffen-SS NCO-type, runes'-tab, which is IMO accordingly priced!
'Standard' - and fairly small-sized - 'official' WH-issue religious song-booklet (or 'Evangelisches Feldgesangbuch'), bearing a neat ink-stamp that reads: 'Kdo.227 Inf.Div.' - overall very nice condition! This is a nice example of a 'standard' - and fairly small-sized - 'official' WH-issue religious song-booklet (or 'Evangelisches Feldgesangbuch'), bearing a neat ink-stamp that reads: 'Kdo.227 Inf.Div.', in overall nice, albeit slightly used, condition. The small-sized (ie. 11 x 7,5 cms. sized) booklet retains all its 92 pages and is only slightly used (ie. almost mint). The booklet is neatly ink-stamped (on the first page) with a blue-coloured stamp (ie. 'Dienstsiegel') that clearly reads: 'Kdo.227 Inf.Div.'. Simply a nice small-sized WH equipment item that is IMO accordingly priced!
'Standard' WH (Kriegsmarine) golden-coloured, aluminium-based (ie. 'Feuervergoldete') ID-disc, bearing the stamped text ie. name & number: 'Franz Kneisel - N 4230/40 T' - nice, albeit clearly worn condition! This is a 'standard' WH (Kriegsmarine) golden-coloured, aluminium-based (ie. 'Feuervergoldete') ID-disc, bearing the stamped text ie. name & number: 'Franz Kneisel - N 4230/40 T', in nice, albeit clearly worn condition. It bears a coded number and (possible) date: '1940'. The disc is in fine, clearly used, condition and shows some regular wear (sligthly torn-out holes). Of interest is also the fact that this example still bears its cord with which it was worn for years. It was never cleaned nor polished and bears a 'stamped' blood-group mark:, type: 'A'. Simply a nice 'navy' disc that came directly from a German flea-market!
'Standard' WH-issue, reddish-brown-coloured and/or 'Bakelite'-based container, still containing the 'Hautentgiftungsmittel Losantin' in the form of tablets, neatly maker- (ie.: 'GBT'-) marked and/or dated: '1943' This is a small-sized item that was carried by all WWII German troops in their gasmask-containers: a 'standard' WH-issue, reddish-brown-coloured and/or 'Bakelite'-based container, still containing the 'Hautentgiftungsmittel Losantin' in the form of tablets, neatly maker- (ie.: 'GBT'-) marked and/or dated: '1943', in overall very nice and unopened condition. This example - which is marked ie. dated on its top and/or bottom) still has its (almost undamaged) paper-based etiket in place and also shows its (brownish-coloured-) linnen tape-closure in place (something that is not that often the case). Simply a nice little equipment item that is often missing: hard to upgrade this example!

The booklet (ie. card) - which is folded sized: 12,5 x 8,5 cms. - is nicely complete and filled-in and shows a neat photo of Heckel wearing a BDM 'Kletterweste' with attached district-triangle (that IMO reads: 'West ....'). The picture shows also other interesting details such as the leather knot being worn. The piece is very clean, neatly ink-stamped and is void of any staining nor damage. A nice and complete 'BDM'-related picture-ID!

This is a little piece of equipment that is often missing: a so-called 'lense-protector' executed in 'Bakelite', fitted for the standard WH binoculars 'Dienstglas - 6 x 30'.

Simply a desirable equipment-piece that would surely look great if re-mounted on a pair of 6 x 30 binoculars!
'Standard'-pattern, WH ('Kriegsmarine') aluminium-based and/or bright golden-toned ID-disc, bearing the engraved text ie. number: 'Kriegsmarine - 1682/43K' The disc - which is IMO of the later-war-period type - bears no name of the recipient but just shows the wording: 'Kriegsmarine' and a 'coded'-number that reads: '1682/43K': it is a disc that was issued in the year '1943'. The disc - which is clearly worn as such - is in a fine, albeit clearly used- and/or worn, condition and does show some regular wear (it shows somewhat torn-out holes). It was IMO most certainly once period cleaned ie. polished and is still a bit dirty: the 'bright-coloured' golden-toned finish is however still nicely- ie. almost fully preserved. It should be noted that these 'standard-pattern' and decorative KM-related ID-discs are actually not that easy to encounter. Simply a nice albeit clearly used and/or worn example!
'Standard'-pattern, WH ('Kriegsmarine') aluminium-based and/or bright golden-toned ID-disc, bearing the engraved text ie. number: 'Kriegsmarine - 75458/44' The disc - which is of the later-war type - bears no name of the recipient but just shows the wording: 'Kriegsmarine' and a 'coded'-number that reads: '75458': it is a disc that was issued in the year '1944'. The disc - which is clearly worn as such - is in a fine, albeit clearly used- and/or worn, condition and does show some regular wear (it shows somewhat torn-out holes). It was IMO most certainly once period cleaned ie. polished and is still a bit dirty: the 'bright-coloured' golden-toned finish is however still nicely- ie. almost fully preserved. It should be noted that these 'standard-pattern' and decorative KM-related ID-discs are actually not that easy to encounter. Simply a nice albeit clearly used and/or worn example!
'Standard'-type WH (Luftwaffe) breasteagle - used & clearly uniform removed condition! This is a clearly used and tunic-removed, 'standard-type' WH (Luftwaffe) breasteagle in nice, albeit used and clearly worn condition. The eagle has great detail and was clearly removed from a LW tunic (the stitching-holes are still present and visible). The eagle is in an overall fine condition and shows only minor wear and age (somewhat dirty): it is executed in regular LW-type wool. An honest 'tunic-removed' LW eagle that IMO is priced accordingly!
'Standard'-type WH (Luftwaffe) breasteagle - very nice, IMO slightly used condition! This is a nice example of a 'standard-type' WH (Luftwaffe), woolen-based breasteagle in nice, albeit IMO slightly used and worn condition. The eagle has great detail and is in an overall fine condition and shows only minor wear and age: it is executed in regular LW-type wool (showing the 'multi-colour' linnen on the back). A nice LW eagle that IMO is accordingly priced!
'Standard'-type, woolen-based, WH (Luftwaffe) breasteagle - mint, unissued condition! I recently found 5 identical and mint examples of the 'standard'-type, woolen-based, WH (Luftwaffe) breasteagle, in stonemint, unissued condition. The pieces are executed in greyish/white linnen on a blue woolen background and are 'backed' with black-coloured linnen (as usual). The eagles have great detail and can naturally easily be used to restore a Luftwaffe tunic or 'Fliegerbluse'. The price is naturally per piece. Impossible to upgrade these!
'Standard-issue'-type WH (Heeres or Luftwaffe) side-arm-knot (ie.'Troddel'), as executed in the 'white/red/white//silvergrey'-coloured branchcolour These side-arm-knots (ie.'Troddel') were specifically intended for usage on the K98-type bayonets and were worn around their leather-based bayonet-frogs. The piece shows some minor staining caused by regular usage and/or wear, but is in very nice and fully complete condition. This piece shows the 'white/red/white//silvergrey'-coloured branchcolour denoting the soldiers regiment ie. company (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very nice piece that would look awesome if re-mounted on a K98-bayonet!
'Standard-issue'-type, neatly ('BeVo'-) woven-, WH (Luftwaffe) enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCO-) type breast-eagle The piece is as to be expected executed in greyish-/white-coloured linnen and is executed on a typical, darker-blue-coloured- and/or linnen-based 'background': as such is it a typical example that originated from the 'BeVo'-company situated in Wuppertal. The piece is not 'backed' (as is more often encountered) and can easily be graded 'mint-/unissued': it comes as straightly cut-of the role'. The eagle has truly great, pronounced detail and can naturally easily be used to restore any Luftwaffe tunic ie. 'Fliegerbluse'. It should be noted that these attractive, WH (Luftwaffe) enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCO-) type breast-eagles are not that easily encountered and can easily be graded 'fairly scarce'.
'Standard-issue'-type, WH 'Fettbuchse' (ie. fat-container), as executed in black-coloured 'Bakelite' The neat piece - which is IMO only moderately used- and which is totally undamaged - is neatly maker-marked with a makers'-logo (circle with numbers - see pictures) on the back and/or inside as is usually encountered. These containers rank among the 'basic' equipment of any front-soldier and were stored in the bread-bag. This example is in an overall very nice condition and is as stated void of any damage and that only shows some minimal wear: great to complete any WH equipment set-up ie. bread-bag contents!
'Standard-issue'-type, WH 'Fettbuchse' (ie. fat-container), as executed in black-coloured 'Bakelite' The neat piece - which is IMO only moderately used- and which is totally undamaged - is neatly maker-marked with a makers'-logo (circle with numbers - see pictures) on the back and/or inside as is usually encountered. These containers rank among the 'basic' equipment of any front-soldier and were stored in the bread-bag. This example is in an overall very nice condition and is as stated void of any damage and that only shows some minimal wear: great to complete any WH equipment set-up ie. bread-bag contents!
'Standard-issue'-type, WH 'Fettbuchse' (ie. fat-container), as executed in black-coloured so-called: 'Bakelite' The neat piece - which is IMO only moderately used- and which is totally undamaged - is neatly maker-marked with a makers'-logo (circle with numbers - see pictures) on the back and/or inside as is usually encountered. These containers rank among the 'basic' equipment of any front-soldier and were stored in the bread-bag. This example is in an overall very nice condition and is as stated void of any damage and that only shows some minimal wear: great to complete any WH equipment set-up ie. bread-bag contents!
'Standard-issue'-type, WH 'Fettbuchse' (ie. fat-container), as executed in bright-orange-coloured 'Bakelite' The neat piece - which is IMO only moderately used- and which is totally undamaged - is neatly maker-marked with a makers'-logo (circle with numbers - see pictures) on the back and/or inside as is usually encountered. These containers rank among the 'basic' equipment of any front-soldier and were stored in the bread-bag. This example is in an overall very nice condition and is as stated void of any damage and that only shows some minimal wear: great to complete any WH equipment set-up ie. bread-bag contents!
'Standard-issue'-type, WH compass (or: 'Marschkompass') as executed in black-coloured 'Bakelite' (being a maker- (ie. 'CXN' or: 'Emil Busch - Rathenow'-) marked example that comes on its original black cord as issued ie. worn The compass shows a clear (later-war-period) 3-digit code (ie. 'CXN') denoting that it was a piece that was produced by the: 'Emil Busch'-company based in the town of Rathenow. The compass is still fully functional and void of any damage or alike: it also retains its (full-sized-) period-attached and/or black-coloured, linnen-based cord. The piece has never been cleaned: it is just a bit dirty ie. stained.
'Standard-issue'-type, WH compass (or: 'Marschkompass') as executed in black-coloured 'Bakelite', being an IMO early-period and/or maker-(ie. 'Busch-Rathenow'-) marked example The compass shows a white- (ie. beige-) coloured inner-section and is showing a 'D.R.G.M.'-patent-pending mark and maker-marking-text, denoting that it was a piece that was produced by the: 'Emil Busch'-company based in the town of Rathenow. The compass - which is executed in black-coloured 'Bakelite' is still fully functional but shows a (minimally damaged- outer-ring - see pictures). It is furthermore just a bit dirty ie. stained caused by fair usage and/or storage for decades.
'Standard-issue'-type, WH compass (or: 'Marschkompass') as was executed in black-coloured 'Bakelite' and showing a white-coloured capital 'A' on its lid, being an IMO later-war-period and/or non-maker-marked example The compass - which is clearly used - shows a black-coloured inner-section but is void of a three-digit makers-code on its top (something that is not unusual). The compass - which is executed in black-coloured 'Bakelite' - is still fully functional and is void of any damage - see pictures). It is furthermore just a bit dirty ie. stained caused by fair usage and/or storage for decades. The piece shows a makers'-mark (small circle with a code) on its bottom and shows a (fully preserved) white-coloured, capital 'A' on its lid (denoting that the piece is non-magnetic or in German language: 'Anti-magnetisch'). Simply a neat example of a 'standard-issued'-type, WH 'Marschkompass'!
'Standard-issue'-type, woolen-based, WH (Luftwaffe) enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCO-) type breast-eagle The piece is as to be expected executed in greyish-/white-coloured linnen and is mounted on a typical, bluish-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'background'. The piece is not 'backed' (as is more often encountered) and can easily be graded mint-/unissued. The eagle has truly great, pronounced detail and can naturally easily be used to restore any Luftwaffe tunic ie. 'Fliegerbluse'.
'Standard-issue'-type, woolen-based, WH (Luftwaffe) enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCO-) type breast-eagle The piece is as to be expected executed in greyish-/white-coloured linnen and is mounted on a typical, bluish-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'background'. The piece is not 'backed' (as is more often encountered) and can easily be graded mint-/unissued. The eagle has truly great, pronounced detail and can naturally easily be used to restore any Luftwaffe tunic ie. 'Fliegerbluse'.
'Standard-issue'-type, woolen-based, WH (Luftwaffe) side-cap (ie. 'Schiffchen') eagle The eagle - which has never been used and can easily be graded 'mint-/unissued' - is as to be expected executed in greyish-/white-coloured linnen and is mounted on a typical, bluish-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'background'. The piece is not 'backed' (as is more often encountered). The eagle has truly great, pronounced detail and can naturally easily be used to restore any Luftwaffe side-cap (ie. 'Schiffchen') or even M43-type cap. The eagle was IMO once glued into an album or scrapbook and does show some minimal carton-/glue-remains on its back (see pictures).
'Standard-issue-type', WH ('Kriegsmarine') cap-tally (ie.'Mützenband') entitled: 'Kriegsmarine' The 'Mützenband' or cap-tally - which is IMO minimally shortened and measures approx. 106 cms. in length - is a fine original example that originated from a small lot of KM insignia I recently acquired. The 'BeVo'-like weave-pattern - executed in (fairly bright!) golden-yellow- (ie. 'flat-wire'-) like and linnen-based thread - is simply stunning. The nice and detailed golden-weave embroidery has maintained a truly 'golden-yellow coloured patina', something that is not always the case with these KM cap-tallies: it is just a tiny bit stained ie. dirty caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage.
'Standard-issued'-type, WH binoculars (ie. 'Dienstglas' 6 x 30), being a neat beige-yellow-coloured and/or: 'DDX'- (= 'Voigtländer'-) marked example that retains its rubberised protection-cap and leather-based carrying-strap The pair is fully complete as found (having undamaged, darker-brown-coloured 'Bakelite' eyecups-) and having most of its original applied, beige-yellow-coloured-paint (ie. 'Einheitsfarbe') remaining. The piece is however minimally used and shows normal traces of usage and/or minimal wear. The top is neatly marked with a three-digit makers'-code: 'DDX' (signiying that it was a piece that was produced by the: 'Voigtländer'-company) and shows the (undamaged-) inscription: 'Dienstglas' and/or unique serial-number (that reads: '326545') as can be seen on the pictures. This example is completely clear of sight and sharp and would even serve as a 'day-to-day' usable pair of binoculars. Of additional interest is the fact the piece also has an additional engraved 'KF'- (ie. 'Kalte Fest'-) marking, signifying that it can also be used in minus-temperature areas. The pair came mounted on its (full-length-) black-coloured- and/or leather-based carrying-strap (which is naturally mounted by two beige-yellow-coloured, metal-based snaps as to be expected). Moreover does it come with its its rubberised protection-cap (see pictures). The piece was recently found as such at a German private household and was simply a piece that was used as a personal item after the war.
'Standard-issued'-type- WH 'Deutscher Volkssturm' ID-booklet (ie. 'Soldbuch') as was issued for the: 'Volkssturmmann' Paul Schostek born in 1891, member within the VS-unit: 'Btl. 23/206' This is a fully complete - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH 'Deutscher Volkssturm' ID-booklet (ie. 'Soldbuch') as was issued for the: 'Volkssturmmann' Paul Schostek born in 1891, member within the VS-unit: 'Btl. 23/206', in overall very nice (ie. not damaged nor denazified and/or truly fully filled-in-) condition. The typical small-sized booklet (sized only: 9 x 12 cms.) is in an overall nice and/or complete condition having all its 12 pages and has not been 'damaged' whatsoever. Schostek was enlisted as late as 6 February 1945: a few months later it was all over. The booklet is void of a photo (as more often) but shows the regular - albeit minimal - entries and/or ink-stamps (as is shown on the various pictures). It seems that Schostek was handed-out a full equiprment-kit, K98-rifle and was also given a pistol (M27) (as can be seen on the pages 5 ie. 6). Schostek was apparently wounded and was hospitalised on 23 March 1945: the stamped entry (on pages 6) states that he was hospitalised at the: 'Feldlazarett 101'. The booklet - which as stated never had a photo included - has as stated the regular entries as more often encountered. Still a nice little, late-war period ID-document that surely represents a piece of history!
'Standard-issued'-type- WH 'Deutscher Volkssturm' ID-booklet (ie. 'Soldbuch') as was issued to the: 'Volkssturmmann' Hinrich Hörster born in 1912, member within the VS-unit: 'Gau 39 Btl.1/1' This is a fully complete - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH 'Deutscher Volkssturm' ID-booklet (ie. 'VS-Soldbuch') as was issued for the: 'Volkssturmmann' Hinrich Hörster born in 1912, member within the VS-unit: 'Gau 39 Btl.1/1', in overall very nice (ie. not damaged nor denazified and/or filled-in-) condition. The typical small-sized booklet (sized only: 9 x 12 cms.) is in an overall nice and/or complete condition having all its 12 pages and has not been 'damaged' whatsoever: the cover just shows two punched holes - see pictures. Hörster was enlisted as late as 30 March 1945: a few weeks later it was all over. The booklet is void of a photo (as more often) but shows the regular - albeit minimal - entries and/or ink-stamp (as shown on the various pictures). Still a nice little, late-war period ID-document that surely represents a piece of history!
'Standard-pattern' (albeit IMO clearly tailor-made-), WH (Heeres) white-coloured-, 4-pocket summer-tunic (ie. 'Sommerfeldbluse') as constructed from 'waffle'-like material as once worn by an: 'Oberst des Nachrichten-Regiments 14' The tunic was never part of any collection and originated from a private household were it was recently uncovered. The tunic - which is of a fair size and which will most certainly fit a mannequin or buste (as can be seen on the pictures) - comes with all its insignia period-attached. As per regulation it shows a neat (and very detailed albeit non-maker-marked-) WH (Heeres), silver-coloured- and/or metal- (ie. 'Buntmetall'-) based breast-eagle (being a neat example that retains it period-attached pin-/catch set-up and/or little vertically mounted pin attached to hold it in place when worn). Next to this it shows a neat (and fully matching!) pair of 'cyphered' and/or bright-yellow- (ie. 'zitronengelber'-) coloured shoulderboards. These boards are firmly sewn-into the tunic and show moderate age ie. wear. The boards show 4 (small-sized-) and/or golden-toned pips and equally golden-toned '1' and/or '4'-numerals. All devices show equal wear and/or tarnish. Naturally, does the tunic never had any collar-tabs attached. All neatly silver-toned- and/or pebbled-style buttons are present (and firmly attached by means of specific rings as to be expected). The tunic has NOT been cleaned and does show some minimal age and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). It does NOT show any medal- or decoration loops and is totally void of any ink-stamps ie. markings (something that I have observed before). In any case is this a neat - and totally unmessed with! - white-coloured, 4-pocket summer-tunic (ie. 'Sommerfeldbluse') that belonged to an: 'Oberst des Nachrichten-Regiments 14': I deem that this neat tunic is accordingly priced!
'Standard-pattern', 'Hitlerjugend'/'Bund Deutsche Mädel (HJ/BDM), so-called: 'Ärmelraute', as executed in so-called 'BeVo'-weave pattern This patch is clearly shirt- ie. tunic-removed and shows some minor staining and/or moderate wear: it is neatly pre-folded and does show an interwoven 'Ges.Gesch.' patent-pending-marking as to be expected (see pictures).
'Standard-pattern', 'Hitlerjugend'/'Bund Deutsche Mädel (HJ/BDM), so-called: 'Ärmelraute', as executed in so-called 'BeVo'-weave pattern This patch is clearly shirt- ie. tunic-removed (some stitching-remains are still present) and shows some minor staining and/or moderate wear: it is neatly pre-folded and does show an interwoven 'Ges.Gesch.' patent-pending-marking as to be expected (see pictures).
'Standard-pattern', 'Hitlerjugend'/'Bund Deutsche Mädel (HJ/BDM), so-called: 'Ärmelraute', as executed in so-called 'BeVo'-weave pattern I recently found a small stack comprising of 10 (fully identical) examles of the 'standard-pattern', 'Hitlerjugend'/'Bund Deutsche Mädel (HJ/BDM), so-called: 'Ärmelrauten', all 10 pieces in overall very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued-) condition. The pieces were clearly cut-off the role and were never folded-, trimmed nor tunic-attached. All show an interwoven 'Ges.Gesch.' patent-pending-marking as to be expected and do show some staining ie. discolouration on the backing only (see pictures). The price is naturally per single 'Ärmelraute'.
'Standard-pattern', 'Reichsbahn' (ie. railways), arm-eagle, as executed in bright, golden-yellow coloured linnen on a black-coloured and/or also linnen-based background, entitled: 'RBD Nürnberg' The piece - which is executed in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave-pattern - was simply never folded nor trimmed and comes as 'straightly cut-from the role': it shows some minimal age ie. staining, simply caused by decades of storage only: it is of course fully undamaged and can naturally easily serve to restore any tunic. The arm-eagle is (naturally) a left facing example that was intended for usage by an employee that was attached to the: 'Reichsbahn-Direktion' based in the town of 'Nürnberg'.
'Standard-pattern', Wehrmacht (Heeres, Luftwaffe, Kriegsmarine ie. Waffen-SS) K98-bayonet (or: 'Seitengewehr') being a neat non-maker-marked example that comes with its period-attached, leather-based bayonet-frog The very attractive piece was IMO certainly issued but was IMO hardly used: it retains a very nice and/or truly fully undamaged, brownish-blue-coloured and/or 'anodized' finish. The 'standard-type' scabbard retains also a full (and also equally anodized-) finish (which is of course original to the piece and was IMO NOT redone or alike). The piece is - as stated - not-maker-marked and only bears a unique serial-number (that reads: 'H8246') and also shows the (unusally present-) 'Waffenabnahme'-markings (ie. small-sized eagles) on its top. The bayonet has the neat - and/or undamaged! - light-brown-coloured and/or wooden-based grips as to be expected. The neatly preserved scabbard is (IMO) void of any numbering (although this might be obscured by the frog). Before ordering this neat personal-equipment item you should insure if sending it to your respective country is in line with your local weapon- laws- and/or regulations: this is your own responsibility and I do NOT take any responsibility if it is confiscated or alike. The piece came with its period-attached, black-coloured and/or leather-based bayonet-frog: this example is in an equally very nice and/or fully functional condition that just shows some minimal wear and/or age. The piece is clearly marker-marked (on its back) with the impressed makers'-name and/or date: 'Franze Brehme - 1940'. It should be noted that these K98-bayonets are easily encountered: very nicely preserved examples (such as this one) can easily be graded: 'scarce'.
'Standard-type' WH (Heer ie Luftwaffe) leather-based sword knot or 'Troddel', executed in the ‘standard’ greenish-coloured leather, having embroidered silver-stripes - very nice, albeit slightly used and/or worn condition! This is a very nice - albeit slightly used - example of a 'standard-type', WH (Heer or Luftwaffe) side-arm knot or 'Troddel', sword knot or 'Troddel', executed in the ‘standard’ greenish-coloured leather, having embroidered silver-stripes, as specifically intended for usage for the swords (ie. ‘Degen’), in overall very nice albeit slightly used and/or worn condition. The piece shows some minor staining caused by regular wear, but is in very nice and fully complete (and souple!) condition. Simply a very nice piece that would look awesome if re-mounted on a sword!
'Standard-type' WH (Heer or Luftwaffe) side-arm knot or 'Troddel', executed in the 'yellow/white/yellow/silvergrey' branch-colour - nice, albeit clearly used and/or worn condition! This is a nice - albeit used - example of a 'standard-type', WH (Heer or Luftwaffe) side-arm knot or 'Troddel', executed in the 'yellow/white/yellow/silvergrey' branch-colour, as specifically intended for usage on the K98 bajonets ie. their leather bayonet frogs, in overall nice albeit clearly used and/or worn condition. The piece shows some minor staining caused by regular wear, but is in very nice and fully complete condition. Simply a very nice piece that would look awesome if re-mounted on a K98 bajonet!
'Standard-type' WH (Heer) side-arm knot or 'Troddel' executed in 'green/silver colour' specifically intended for 'Unteroffiziere' (NCO-usage) - very nice, albeit slightly used condition! This is a nice (IMO almost mint!) 'standard-type', WH (Heer) side-arm knot or so-called: 'Troddel', executed in the 'green/silver branch-colour', as intended for usage on the K98 bajonets i.e. leather bayonet frogs. The piece shows some minor staining, but is in very nice and fully complete condition (IMO almost mint!). This is the model that was specifically intended for NCO's (or 'Unteroffiziere'). Simply a very nice piece that would look awesome if re-mounted on a K98 bajonet!
'Standard-type' WH (Heer) side-arm knot or 'Troddel' executed in 'green/silver colour' specifically intended for 'Unteroffiziere' (NCO-usage) - very nice, albeit slightly used condition! This is a nice (IMO almost mint!) 'standard-type', WH (Heer) side-arm knot or so-called: 'Troddel', executed in the 'green/silver branch-colour', as intended for usage on the K98 bajonets i.e. leather bayonet frogs. The piece shows some minor staining, but is in very nice and fully complete condition (IMO almost mint!). This is the model that was specifically intended for NCO's (or 'Unteroffiziere'). Simply a very nice piece that would look awesome if re-mounted on a K98 bajonet!
'Standard-type' WH (Heer) side-arm knot or 'Troddel', executed in 'green/silver colour', as specifically intended for 'Unteroffiziere' (NCO-usage) - very nice, albeit clearly used and/or worn condition! This is a nice - albeit used - example of a 'standard-type', WH (Heer) side-arm knot or so-called: 'Troddel', executed in the 'green/silver branch-colour', as specifically intended for usage on the K98 bajonets ie. their leather bayonet frogs, in overall nice albeit clearly used and/or worn condition. The piece shows some minor staining caused by regular wear, but is in very nice and fully complete condition: the piece shows two minimal damaged areas (see picture) albeit nothing shocking nor disturbing. This is the model that was specifically intended for NCO's (or 'Unteroffiziere'). Simply a very nice piece that would look awesome if re-mounted on a K98 bajonet!
'Standard-type', black-coloured 'Bakelite'-based, WH compass, which is nicely maker-marked: 'HAP' - nice and only fairly used & issued condition! This is a decent example of the 'standard-type', black-coloured 'Bakelite'-based, WH compass, which is nicely maker-marked: 'HAP', in nice and only fairly used & issued condition. The compass is fully functional and is marked with a late-war 3-digit maker code: 'HAP' (signifying that it was produced by the: 'Max Kohl A.G.' company based in Chemnitz). The compass shows some regular wear and age but is fully functional (the metal top shows alsmost no wear and retains a full black-painted surface). This example just needs a piece of cord to complete it. A nice and honest example!
'Standard-type', early- (ie. pre-war-) model, WH (Heer) so-called 'M36'-type breasteagle, executed in white-coloured linnen on a dark-green coloured background - nice, albeit pre-confectioned ie. pre-trimmed condition! I recently found two identical examples of the 'standard-type', early- (ie. pre-war-) model, WH (Heer) so-called: 'M36'-type breasteagle, executed in white-coloured linnen on a dark-green coloured background, in overall nice, albeit pre-confectioned ie. pre-trimmed condition. Both pieces - which are text-book examples of the neat 'BeVo'-weave technique - were IMO firstly carefully mounted on a piece of green-coloured 'felt-like' material and then confectioned ie. cut. (Possibly done in order to glue them in a scrapbook or album: both do show some glue-/carton-remains on the back). Both breast-eagles - which can nevertheless still excellently be used to restore or complete a tunic - show some truly minimal age ie. staining caused by decades of storage only: they can almost be graded: 'mint'. These 'standard'-type - and fairly 'early-period' 'Heeres' breasteagles were worn on most types of German WWII tunics throughout the war. The price is naturally per piece. Simply a nice opportunity to acquire a neat and 100% genuine 'BeVo'-woven army breast-eagle for a truly competitive price!
'Standard-type', WH-era, 'Pertrix'-flashlight (ie. 'Taschenlampe'), as executed in black-coloured metal and being of the type: 'Pertrix P10' The flashlight comes complete (with its original light-bulb!) and is IMO still functional: it is IMO only moderately used. The operating-button (visible on its top) is present and of course in full working order. These desirable hand-held flashlights - which could be attached to the tunic(button) as this example - saw wide-spread usage on all possible battle-fronts throughout the war. The piece - which is can be dated around the late thirties - is just a tiny bit dusty but was never cleaned: it comes as recently found. The inside shows the usual - albeit minimal - rust-staining as to be expected. Simply a neat little equipment item: only the second such complete example I ever had on offer!
'Standard-type-', WH 'Berker' flashlight, as executed in brownish-/black-coloured 'Bakelite', still retaining its original and/or partly complete leather strap (ie. 'Lasche') These 'standard-type-', WH 'Berker' flashlights - as executed in brownish-/black-coloured 'Bakelite' and depicting the 'Morse-Alfabet' on their front - rank amongst the most desirable WH-equipment-items around. The example on offer here is clearly used and/or worn: it retains, however, its original and/or partly complete leather-strap (ie. 'Lasche') something that is not always the case (Note: I deem that the lower-part has been once replaced - see pictures). The flashlight comes complete with its light-bulb and is IMO still fully functional. The protective (blue-) coloured-, plastic-based operating-button is - as almost always - missing and just shows its aluminium-based turning-button - see pictures. Furthermore is one of the metal-strips that holds the ('Bakelite'-based) closing-studs broken but still functional. These desirable hand-held flashlights saw usage on all possible battlefronts throughout the war. The piece is just a tiny bit dusty but was never cleaned. The inside - and/or front - shows the usually encountered markings as to be expected. It should be moreover noted that this is one of those equipment-pieces that every collector wants but which are simply not available. In any case a very nice and desirable equipment item that can easily be graded 'rare'.
'Treuedienst Ehrenzeichen 1. Klasse' (golden class - loyal service medal for 40 yrs.of service), that comes on its original ribbon as issued and worn - overall nice condition! This is a nice example of a - non-maker-marked - example of the 'Treuedienst Ehrenzeichen 1. Klasse' (golden class - loyal service medal for 40 yrs.of service) that comes on its original ribbon as issued, in overall nice condition. The medal is a nice piece that retains all its golden finish: it also retains its 'Hochpolierte Kanten' but is somewhat dirty (it has never been cleaned). It comes on its corn-flower blue ribbon which still has its period - copper-toned - attachment-pin for wearing the medal on a tunic. The medal has never been cleaned and has immaculate (ie. undamaged) enamel. Simply a nice example!
'Treuedienst Ehrenzeichen 1. Klasse' (or golden class, loyal-service medal for 40 yrs. of service) that comes mounted on its original ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') as issued and/or found The medal - which is unmarked as more often encountered and that can easily be graded 'mint' - is a stunning piece that retains most of its very shiny, golden-coloured finish: it also retains most of its so-called: 'Hochpolierte Kanten' (or polished sides) and has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished.

The medal has truly immaculate enamel and is hard to be upgraded.

The medal has most certainly never been cleaned - it shows some minimal tarnish - and has an immaculate (ie. fully undamaged) enamelled swastika-area. Simply a very nice example that is almost impossible to be upgraded!

'Treuedienst Ehrenzeichen' - golden class - 40 yrs. in rare carton pouch produced by: 'Deschler & Sohn' - nice, albeit used condition! This is a very nice example of the 40 yrs. 'Treuedienst Ehrenzeichen' (faithful service decoration) in the first (golden) class, that comes in its original carton pouch as produced by the 'Deschler & Sohn' based in München. The medal is a nice, untouched piece (all golden finish present) that comes on its blue ribbon with attached copper pin for wearing it on the tunic. The medal has never been cleaned and has immaculate enamel. The pouch - which is IMO actually X-times more rare than the medal itself! - is in a nice albeit used condition (it is a bit wrinkeld and shows some minor tears). It should be noted that this is a truly nice and rare item: this is only the 2nd time that I have encountered this medal in a carton pouch: they always come in the red-coloured boxes! A truly scarce item!
'Tropical'- (ie. golden-brownish-coloured-) Waffen-SS cap-skull (being of the larger model as executed in neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern), being an example that was clearly worn ie. cap-removed This is an attractive example of a so-called Waffen-SS cap-skull (being of the desirable larger-sized-pattern) as was executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern and being of the tropical version (ie. being golden-brown coloured-), in overall nice albeit clearly worn- ie. cap-removed- condition. These tropical skulls are nowadays still easier to find than their 'off-white'- ie. silver-coloured counterparts, however, one should realise that also these 'tropical'-examples are getting harder to find and will IMO soon be as difficult to obtain. The example on offer here is as stated clearly issued and/or worn: it was carefully trimmed- ie. pre-folded and still shows the signs of having been once cap-attached: it shows some minimal age and/or staining (ie. minimal glue-remains on the back) but is void of any defaults or alike (see pictures).
'Variant'-pattern, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based version of an: 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or general assault badge ie. GAB), being nicely a nicely maker- (ie. 'R.S.'-) marked example as was produced by the: 'Rudolf Souval'-company This example - which is as stated above nicely 'R.S.'-marked on the back as usual - is a typical piece as was produced by the: 'Rudolf Souval'-company based in Wien (ie. Vienna) in Austria. The badge - which has truly pronounced detaill - comes naturally with a functional (and/or unaltered-) catch, pin and/or hinge as to be expected. The piece - which is also referred to as a: 'classic set-up' variant - is executed from greyish-coloured zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal and has maintained a brownish-/silver-grey-coloured- and/or typical 'zinc-based' finish (as to be expected). The badge - which was as stated clearly used- and/or worn - shows some dust and dirty areas but was never cleaned nor polished: it has a nice, somewhat darkened age-patina (see pictures). These desirable and neatly maker-marked 'variant'- ie. 'classic set-up' variant GABs as produced by the 'R.S.'-company can easily be graded 'fairly scarce'.
'Variant'-pattern, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based version of an: 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or general assault badge ie. GAB), being nicely a nicely maker- (ie. 'W'-) marked example as was produced by the: 'Karl Wurster'-company This example - which is as stated above nicely 'W'-marked on the back, left of the pin-set-up as usual - is a typical piece as produced by the: 'Karl Wurster''-company based in Marneukirchen in Sachsen. The badge - which has truly pronounced detaill - comes naturally with a functional (and/or unaltered-) catch, pin and/or hinge as to be expected. The piece is executed from greyish-coloured zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal and has maintained a nice, silver-grey-coloured- and/or typical 'zinc-based' finish (as is not always the case). The badge - which IMO can easily be graded 'mint-/unissued' shows some minimal dust and dirt but was never cleaned nor polished. These neatly maker-marked 'variant'-GABs as produced by the 'Wurster'-company can easily be graded 'fairly scarce'.
'Variant'-pattern, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based version of an: 'Infanterie-Sturm- abzeichen in Silber' (or infantry assault badge ie. IAB), being a nicely maker- (ie. 'M.K.1'-) marked example that was produced by a today still unidentified maker This example - which is as stated above nicely 'M.K.1'-marked on the back as more often encountered with awards by this maker - is a typical piece that was produced by a today still unidentified maker ie. 'Hersteller'. The badge - which has truly pronounced detaill - comes naturally with a functional (and/or unaltered-) catch, pin- and/or ball-shaped pin-set-up as to be expected. The piece - which is also referred to as a: 'M.K.1'-variant - is executed from greyish-coloured zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal and has maintained a neat silverish-grey-coloured- and/or typical 'zinc-based' finish (as to be expected). The badge - which was IMO only minimally used- ie. worn - shows some dust and dirty areas but was never cleaned nor polished: it has a nice, somewhat darkened age-patina (see pictures). The front has lost most of its silverish-finish whereas the back still shows a fully preserved finish (something that was with certainty caused by having been worn- ie. used). These desirable and neatly maker-marked 'variant'- ie. 'M.K.1'-IABs can easily be graded 'fairly scarce'.
'Variant'-pattern, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based version of an: 'Infanterie-Sturm- abzeichen in Silber' (or infantry assault badge ie. IAB), being a nicely maker- (ie.

Vienna) in Austria. The badge - which has truly pronounced detaill - comes naturally with a functional (and/or unaltered-) catch, pin- and/or hinge (-set-up) as to be expected. The piece - which is also referred to as a: 'small mark' variant - is executed from greyish-coloured zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal and has maintained a neat silverish-grey-coloured- and/or typical 'zinc-based' finish (as to be expected). The badge - which was IMO only minimally used- ie. worn - shows some dust and dirty areas but was never cleaned nor polished: it has a nice, somewhat darkened age-patina (see pictures). These desirable and neatly maker-marked 'variant'- ie. 'classic set-up' variant IABs as produced by the 'R.S.'-company can easily be graded 'fairly scarce'.
'Variant-pattern', 'Reichssportabzeichen DRL in Bronze' (or: DRL sports'-badge in bronze) being an unusually maker- (ie. 'Petz u. Lorenz u. Reichenbach - Wttbg.'-) marked example The badge is of the version with swastika and retains truly all of its (minimally darkened-, golden-bronze-coloured-) finish: it was IMO hardly worn and can easily be graded 'almost mint'. As stated above is the badge unusually maker-marked and bears the makers-signification: 'Petz u. Lorenz u. Reichenbach - Wttbg.' and/or: 'D.R.G.M. '-numeral (as can be seen on the pictures). The badge - which is IMO slightly differently shaped as the unusally encountered DRL-sportbadges - was IMO never cleaned nor polished and retains a fairly darkened (ie. somewhat dirty- and/or tarnished-) age-patina. It comes naturally mounted on its fully functional, pin-/catch-set-up.
'Variant-pattern', 'Reichssportabzeichen DRL in Bronze' (or: DRL sports'-badge in bronze) being an unusually non-marked example that is totally void of any text on its back The attractive badge is of the version with swastika and retains almost all of its (minimally darkened-, golden-bronze-coloured-) finish. As stated is this particular badge unusually non-maker-marked and is also void of the: 'D.R.G.M.'-patent-pending text (see pictures). The badge was IMO never cleaned nor polished and retains a fairly darkened (ie. somewhat dirty- and/or tarnished-) age-patina. It comes naturally mounted on its functional pin-/pin-catch- set-up.
'Variant-pattern', 'Reichssportabzeichen DRL in Bronze' (or: DRL sports'-badge in bronze) being an unusually non-marked example that is void of any text on its back The badge is of the version with swastika and retains almost all of its (minimally darkened-, golden-bronze-coloured-) finish. As stated is the badge unusually non-maker-marked. The badge was IMO never cleaned nor polished and retains a fairly darkened (ie. somewhat dirty- and/or tarnished-) age-patina.
'Variant-pattern', linnen-based- and/or neatly 'machine-woven', golden-yellow-coloured armband entitled: 'Deutsche Wehrmacht', as was intended for staff-members of the German armed forces ie. 'Wehrmacht' This is a neat 'variant-pattern', linnen-based- and/or neatly 'machine-woven'-, golden-yellow-coloured armband (ie. 'Armbinde') entitled: 'Deutsche Wehrmacht', as was intended for staff-members of the German armed forces ie. 'Wehrmacht', that comes in an overall very nice (ie. IMO never issued- nor worn-) condition. These neat golden-yellow-coloured and/or: linnen-based armbands were used by the various (civil- and/or military-) staff-members of the German armed-forces i.e. 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'. The armband on offer here measures approximately 37 x 9,5 cms. and is executed on more course-like linnen: it was found amongst a grouping of Belgian-produced insignia and might well be a Belgian produced 'variant'-specimen. The piece shows some minimal staining ie. dust, simply caused by decades of storage only. A nice and with certainty unusualy encountered example!
'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Gold', being a non-marked, 'Buntmetall'-based example, that comes stored in its nicely maker- (ie. 'LDO'-) marked and ink-stamped etui The wound-badge - which is executed in neat and/or fairly shiny 'Buntmetall' - shows only minimal wear and has of course a fully functional and typically (thin- ie. round-) shaped pin and/or totally unaltered catch. The badge is most certainly never cleaned and retains truly all of its golden-toned finish (ie. is neatly so-called: 'Feuervergoldet'). It only shows some minimal tarnish (it has never been cleaned nor polished though). It is as stated void of any makers'-signification but might IMO well be a piece that was produced by the: 'Hauptmünzamt' based in the town of Wien (Vienna). The black-coloured- (simulated leather-based-) and or carton-based etui - which is 'scarcely' encountered in itself - is also in an overall very nice, albeit minimally used, condition (it is just somewhat dusty ie. dirty simply caused by years of storage but totally void of any damage). The etui has a white- ie. creme-coloured (simulated 'velvet'-) interior: this inlay shows a vague - but present - imprint of the wound-badge (that was most certainly stored in this manner for decades). Of additional interest is also the fact that the top of the etui shows a golden-toned 'LDO'-marking and additional 'L/..'-ink-stamp (which is hard to decypher - see pictures). Simply a very nice and surely desirable, privately-purchased, golden-class WB-set that is nowadays not that easy to encounter!
'Waffen-SS' (ie. 'SS-Polizei') side-cap- (ie. 'Schiffchen'-) eagle, being a larger-sized example as executed in neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern The neat patch is executed in silverish-white-coloured linnen on a black-coloured (and also linnen-based-) background and simply cannot be upgraded. The piece on offer here is a truly mint-/unissued example, that comes as straightly 'cut-of-the-role'. It just shows some minimal age ie. staining caused by decades of storage only.
'Waffen-SS', enlisted-mens'-pattern arm-eagle, being of the standard 'RzM'-style The eagle is of the pattern that was intended for usage by the various Waffen-SS enlisted men (and/or NCOs) throughout the war and is in a never used- ie. virtually mint-/unissued condition. The eagle - which is executed in silver-grey coloured linnen on a black-coloured and woolen-based background - shows a thin-shaped- and/or black-coloured 'backing' as to be expected (see pictures). As stated has the piece never been worn and does show some minimal age caused by decades of storage only.
'Waffen-SS', enlisted-mens'-pattern collar-tab, as executed in so-called: 'BeVo'-weave-style The tab is of the pattern that was intended for usage by the various Waffen-SS enlisted men (and/or NCOs) throughout the war and is in (IMO) never used nor tunic-attached-, condition. The tab shows the more often encountered reddish-brown coloured and/or carton-based 'backing'. As stated has the piece never been worn but does show some moderate staining caused by decades of storage. These 'BeVo'-weave-pattern Waffen-SS-type collar-tabs can easily be graded 'scarce'.
'Waffen-SS', enlisted-mens'-pattern collar-tab, as executed in so-called: 'BeVo'-weave-style The tab is of the pattern that was intended for usage by the various Waffen-SS enlisted men (and/or NCOs) throughout the war and is in a clearly used and/or IMO tunic-removed-, condition. The tab shows the off-white coloured and/or 'buckram'-based backing. As stated has the piece clearly been worn and does show some moderate age, wear and/or staining: the tab still shows the signs (and as stated thread-remains) of once having been tunic-attached.
'Waffen-SS', enlisted-mens'-pattern collar-tab, as executed in so-called: 'BeVo'-weave-style, being an example that still retains its period-applied 'RzM'-etiket The tab is of the pattern that was intended for usage by the various Waffen-SS enlisted men (and/or NCOs) throughout the war and is in (IMO) never used nor tunic-attached-, condition. The tab still retains its period-applied 'RzM'-etiket (which obscures its 'backing' as can be seen on the pictures). As stated has the piece never been worn but does show some moderate staining caused by decades of storage only. These 'BeVo'-weave-pattern Waffen-SS-type collar-tabs can easily be graded 'scarce': those still having a period-applied 'RzM'-etiket even more so!
(Early) NSDAP membership-pin/party badge - 'RzM' and '36' marked - nice, albeit used condition! This is a nice example of an enamelled NSDAP membership-pin or pro-German party badge which is nicely marked: 'RzM' and '36'. The (IMO early) badge - which has a nice age patina and has never been cleaned - has some regular scratches and is showing normal wear and aging but has no enamel damage whatsoever. This one comes on its functional pin. Its also bears the 'Ges.Gesch. patent-pending stamp. A nice and original party badge!

This is a very nice WH (Heer) trade- & special career insignia ie. hand-embroidered signal blitz, as intended for a 'Panzer'-soldier, in mint, unissued condition. The patch shows a hand-embroidered 'blitz', executed in the bright pink branch-colour. The badge shows a nice (white-inked) makers'-mark ('F & S') on the back and just shows some staining from years of storage. A nice little 'Pz'-item!

A nice and not so often encountered set of award-documents for a soldier in a 'Heeres Flak' unit!

The detail on both medals is extraordinary: they have never been cleaned nor polished and have both a nice age patina. The medals are 'mounted' on a clasp (with functional pin/catch) intended for wearing the bar on a 'going-out' tunic or 'Waffenrock'. A truly nice example that cannot be upgraded!

The medals are 'mounted' on a clasp - which is neatly lined with dark-green coloured wool - an has a functional pin/catch attached. A truly nice example that was most certainly intended for wear on a 'going-out' tunic or 'Waffenrock'. Hard to find a nicer example!

A truly nice example that IMO is hard to upgrade!

A truly nice example that IMO is hard to upgrade!

The detail on both medals is extraordinary: they have never been cleaned nor polished and have both a nice age patina. The medals can naturally be again 'mounted' on the accompanying clasp (which is lined with grey coloured wool an has a functional pin/catch attached). The wool shows some 'moth-damage' whereas the ribbons are a bit stained. Still a nice 'parts-set' that came dismantled as such and that can be restored if wished so: I have priced it IMO according to its dismantled condition!
2-piece WWI medal-bar / 'Bandspange' - WWI 'Eisernes Kreuz II.Klasse' & WWI 'Kriegsteilnehmerkreuz mit Schwerter' - used condition This is a 'standard' WWI 2-piece medal-bar (or 'Bandspange') for a WWI 'Eisernes Kreuz II.Klasse' & WWI 'Kriegsteilnehmerkreuz mit Schwerter', in used condition.

2-pieced grouping comprising of two HJ- (ie. 'Hitlerjugend'-) related 'tinnies' respectively as issued to commemorate the: 'Deutsches Jugendfest 1936 u./o. 1937', both being non-maker-marked examples Both non-maker-marked badges - which are executed in silver- ie. copper-toned metal (IMO tin) - still show nice detail and were almost certainly never cleaned nor polished (they are just a tiny bit stained ie. dirty). Both pieces - which do NOT show any cut-out sections - retain most of their original applied finish and come mounted on their (functional-) pin-/catch set-up. The price is naturally intended for the grouping comprising of both badges.

2-pieced medal-bar (or: 'Spange'), showing resp. an: 'Eisernes Kreuz II.Klasse' and 'Ost'-medal in overall very nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition Both medals are nice examples that seem to have never been cleaned nor polished: both come in an equally tarnished- ie. minimally dusty condition and also come mounted on their period-attached and/or nicely pre-folded ribbons. The IC has a neat somewhat 'frosted' appearance and has a very bright age-patina: it retains some of its 'hochpolierte Kanten' (or polished-sides) and retains a fully preserved - ie. totally non-damaged - black-coloured- and/or somewhat matted 'inner-core'. The 'Ost'-medal (or: 'Medaille Winterschlacht im Osten' ie. Eastern Front medal) also retains most of its original, silver- and/or bluish-toned finish: it is also a tiny bit dirty ie. tarnished, simply caused by minimal wear and/or decades of storage. Both awards are non-maker-marked examples. The 'Spange' is constructed from a piece of zinc-based metal around which the ribbons are firmly 'crimped': they can easily be attached or removed upon need. It comes naturally mounted on its functional pin-/catch set-up. The medal-bar (ie. set) was recently found at a private household and was never before in a collection. The 'Spange' is most certainly a period compiled and/or worn piece and is NOT a post-war compilation. In any case a nice - and decorative! - 2-pieced medal-bar- ie. 'Spange' which is IMO accordingly priced!
2-pieced medal-bar (or: 'Spange'), showing resp. an: 'EK II. Klasse' in 'Schinkel'-pattern and a: WH (Heeres ie. KM): 'DA 4. Stufe' (or loyal-service-medal as was intended for 4 years loyal-service) The truly decorative, 2-pieced WH (Heeres ie. Kriegsmarine) medal-bar (or: 'Spange'), shows respectively an: 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' (or Iron Cross second class) being a rarely seen early-example as executed in so-called: 'Schinkel'-format and a: 'Heeres' (ie. Kriegsmarine) 'Dienstauszeichnung 4. Stufe' (or loyal-service-medal as was intended for 4 years loyal-service), both medals in an overall very nice, albeit moderatly used and/or worn-, condition. Both medals are very nice, detailed examples which seem to have never been cleaned nor polished: both come in an equally tarnished- ie. dusty condition and also come on their period-mounted ribbons. The EK - which is mounted on its typical, red-coloured ribbon retains a fully preserved black-coloured- (ie. somewhat satin-like-) 'inner-core' and has a somewhat tarnished silver-frame (that still retains a fair bit of its high-polished sides ie. 'hochpolierte Kanten'. It is as mentioned a piece of the (scarcely seen!) early-period 'Schinkel'-format. (Note: the differences between a 'Schinkel'-format cross - which is in fact a smaller variant as mounted in a WWI IC rim - and a regular type can easily be spotted when compared next to eachother). Both other medals retain most of their original, frosted silver- toned finish: both medals (and/or ribbons) are just a bit dirty ie. tarnished, simply caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage. The DA comes naturally with its obligatory (silver-coloured-) eagle-device attached. The 'Spange' is neatly 'backed' with light-green-coloured wool and comes naturally mounted on its functional pin-/catch set-up - see pictures. The medal-bar was recently found at a private household and was never before in a collection. The 'Spange' is most certainly a period-compiled and/or worn piece and is NOT a post-war compilation: it originated from a private household and was kept as such for decades. These 2-pieced medal-bars- ie. 'Spangen' having a 'Schinkel'-pattern IC attached can easily be graded 'scarce'.
2-pieced medal-bar (or: 'Spange'), showing resp. an: 'KvK II. Klasse mit Schwerter' and a: WH (Heeres ie. KM): 'DA 4. Stufe' (or loyal-service-medal as was intended for 4 years loyal-service) The truly decorative, 2-pieced WH (Heeres ie. Kriegsmarine) medal-bar (or: 'Spange'), shows respectively a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz der II. Klasse mit Schwerter' (or war-merits'-cross second class with swords) and a: 'Heeres' (ie. Kriegsmarine) 'Dienstauszeichnung 4. Stufe' (or loyal-service-medal as was intended for 4 years loyal-service), both medals in an overall very nice, albeit moderatly used and/or worn-, condition. Both medals are very nice, detailed examples which seem to have never been cleaned nor polished: both come in an equally tarnished- ie. dusty condition and also come on their period-mounted ribbons. Both medals retain most of their original, frosted silver- (ie. golden-bronze-) toned finish: both medals (and/or ribbons) are just a bit dirty ie. tarnished, simply caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage. The DA comes naturally with its obligatory (silver-coloured-) eagle-device attached. The 'Spange' is neatly 'backed' with greyish-coloured (officers'-type-) wool and comes naturally mounted on its functional pin-/catch set-up - see pictures. The medal-bar was recently found at a private household and was never before in a collection. The 'Spange' is most certainly a period-compiled and/or worn piece and is NOT a post-war compilation: it originated from a private household and was kept as such for decades.
2-pieced medal-bar (or: 'Spange'), showing respectively a: WH (Heeres or KM) 'DA für 4 Jahre Treue Dienste' and a 'Westwall' medal This is a truly decorative example of a 2-pieced WH (Heer or Kriegsmarine) medal-bar (ie. 'Spange'), showing respectively a WH (Heeres or Kriegsmarine) so-called: 'Dienst- auszeichnung für 4 Jahre Treue Dienste' (or: loyal-service medal for four years of loyal service) having a silver-coloured eagle-device attached and a: 'Westwall'-medal (or: 'Deutsches Schutzwall Ehrenzeichen'), both medals in an overall nice, albeit moderatly used and/or worn, condition. Both medals are nice, decent examples that seem to have never been cleaned nor polished: both come in an equally tarnished- ie. dusty condition and also come mounted on their period-attached ribbons. The 'DA' has a neat frosted appearance and is somewhat dirty (ie. has a minimally darkened age-patina). The 'Westwall'-medal retains most of its original, golden-bronze-toned finish: it is also a tiny bit dirty ie. tarnished, simply caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage. The 'Spange' comes naturally on its functional pin-/catch set-up and is neatly 'backed' with a piece of black-coloured wool as is more often seen. The medal-bar was recently found at a private household and was never before in a collection. The 'Spange' is most certainly a period compiled and/or worn piece and is NOT a post-war compilation: it originated from a private household and was kept as such for decades.
2-pieced ribbon-bar (ie. 'Feld-/Bandspange') showing resp. the ribbons for a: 'KVK II.Kl. ohne Schwerter' and an: 'N.S.D.A.P.- Dienstauszeichnung der 3. Stufe' The 'Band-/Feldspange' holds the ribbons for a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz der 2. Klasse ohne Schwerter' (or: war merits'-cross second class without swords) and an: 'N.S.D.A.P.- Dienstauszeichnung der 3. Stufe' (or N.S.D.A.P. service-award as awarded for 10-years of loyal-service) and comes in an overall nice (albeit clearly issued- ie. moderately worn-) condition. The attached bronze-coloured- (and IMO copper-based-) (eagle-) device has a neat somewhat 'frosted' and/or very detailed appearance: it retains a nice and/or bright age-patina. Both ribbons are of the smaller- (ie. regular-) ribbon-bar size and measure 1,5 cms. each as is more often encountered. The 'Spange' is in a very nice condition overall and is of course fully functional: it is not backed but shows a silver-toned back-plate and retains its functional pin-/catch-attachment (see pictures). It should be noted that all ribbon-bars containing an N.S.D.A.P. loyal-service medal can be graded 'fairly scarce'.
2-pieced WH (Heeres ie. KM) medal-bar (ie.: 'Band-/Feldspange'), resp. depicting the ribbons for a: WH 'DA' with attached eagle-device and a WH Czech 'Anschluss'-medal having an attached miniature 'PB'-bar attached The piece depicts respectively the ribbons for a: WH 'Dienstauszeichnung' (or loyal-service award having its period-attached, golden-coloured, Heeres-type eagle-device in place) and a WH Czech 'Anschluss'-medal (or: 'Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1.Oktober 1938') having a miniature 'Prager Burg Spange' attached. Both ribbons are of the smaller (ie. regular-) ribbon-bar size and measure 1,5 cms. each as is more often encountered. The 'Spange' is in a nice condition overall and is of course fully functional: it is neatly backed with a piece of bluish-coloured wool and retains its functional pin-/catch-attachment (see pictures). This particular example was IMO clearly worn ie. used: it does show some usage-marks and/or minimal aging ie. wear.
2-pieced WH (Heeres ie. KM, Wa-SS or LW) medal-bar (ie.: 'Band-/ Feldspange'), being IMO a piece that was intended for female recipients, resp. depicting the ribbons for a: 'KV-Medaille 1939' and a: 'DV' (or civil-service-) medal The 'Band-/Feldspange' (or ribbon-bar) is in an overall nice (albeit clearly issued- ie. moderately worn-) condition. Both ribbons - being respectively intended for a 'Kriegsverdienst-Medaille 1939' and a: 'Deutsche Volkspflege-' (or civil-service-) medal are of the smaller (ie. regular-) ribbon-bar size and measure 1,5 cms. each as is more often encountered. The 'Spange' is in a nice condition overall and is of course fully functional: it is not 'backed' with wool but is mounted on a metal-based 'plate' and naturally retains its functional pin-/catch-attachment (see pictures). Simply an attractive and desirable (and due to its unusually seen combination IMO female-related!) 'Bandspange' having a desirable WWII-period combination: ideal to 'upgrade' any tunic or to be kept in a medal ie. 'Band-/Feldspange'-collection!
2-pieced WH (Luftwaffe) medal-bar (ie.: 'Band-/Feldspange'), resp. depicting the ribbons for a: WH 'DA' with attached eagle-device and a WH Czech 'Anschluss'-medal having an attached miniature 'PB'-bar attached The piece depicts respectively the ribbons for a: WH 'Dienstauszeichnung' (or loyal-service award having its period-attached, silver-coloured and/or early- ie. down-tailed-, Luftwaffe-type eagle-device in place) and a WH Czech 'Anschluss'-medal (or: 'Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1.Oktober 1938') having a miniature 'Prager Burg Spange' attached. Both ribbons are of the smaller (ie. regular-) ribbon-bar size and measure 1,5 cms. each as is more often encountered. The 'Spange' is in a nice condition overall and is of course fully functional: it is not backed but mounted on a 'crimped' metal-plate and retains its functional pin-/catch-attachment (see pictures). This particular example was IMO clearly worn ie. used: it does show some usage-marks and/or minimal aging ie. wear.
2-pieced, WH (Luftwaffe) (ie. 'Legion Condor'-related-) medal-grouping, comprising of a Spanish Civil War-related medal (ie. the 'Medalla de la Campaña 1936-1939') and a 2-pieced medal-bar (ie. 'Feld-/Bandspange') Both attractive items were recently found together at a German private household and were as such with certainty bestowed on a German national ie. member within the 'Legion Condor'. The medal came regrettably without its period ribbon. It is however a very nice example that retains its original finish and/or detail. The medal came with a neat 2-pieced medal-bar (ie. 'Feld-/Bandspange') showing the ribbons for respectively a Spanish 'Medalla de la Campaña 1936-1939' with attached golden-toned swords-device and a WH Czech occupation medal '1 October 1938' (as was given to all members of the armed forces that participated in the German occupation of Czechoslovakia, which started on 1 October 1938). Both ribbons are of the smaller- (ie. regular-) ribbon-bar size and measure 1,5 cms. each as is more often encountered. The 'Spange' is in a very nice condition overall and is of course fully functional: it is not backed but shows a silver-toned- and metal-based back-plate and retains its functional pin-/catch-attachment (see pictures). Taking into account that both items were always together as such I decided to sell these as a set of two. I deem that I priced this small 'Legion Condor'-related set accordingly.
2-pieced, WH (Luftwaffe) (ie. 'Legion Condor'-related-) medal-grouping, comprising of two Spanish Civil War-related medals (ie. the 'Cruz Roja del Mérito Militar' and/or: 'Medalla de la Campaña 1936-1939') Both attractive medals were recently found together at a German private household and were as such with certainty bestowed on a German national ie. member within the 'Legion Condor'. Of interest is the fact that both awards (which naturally come mounted on their period ribbons) show a so-called: 'Spanish-issued mounting' (ie. both having a bright golden-toned attachment-bar with pin-/pin-catch-setup-) attached - see pictures. Both are very nice examples that retain their original finish and/or detail: the 'Cruz Roja del Mérito Militar' is furthermore totally void of any enamel-damage or alike. Taking into account that both were always together as such I decided to sell these as a set of two.

23-mm. sized miniature-medal (ie. 'Halbminiatur') depicting a medal 'Deutsche Volkspflege Medaille für Frauen an Bandschleife', that comes mounted on its original, pre-confectioned ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') The medal - which in English language can referred to as: 'civil service medal for women on ribbon-bow' comes mounted on its bright-red coloured ribbon (which with certainty has originally been attached to the medal by a medal-maker ie. tailor or distributor (it still retains its functional, siver-toned safety-pin in order to properly wear it on a tunic or dress). The (zinc-based ie. 'Feinzink'-based) medal itself has a superb and/or somewhat 'frosted' age-patina: as often with these 'Feinzink' medals is the piece a tiny bit tarnished and greyish in colour (it is also a tiny bit stained but was IMO never cleaned). The details on this piece, however, are truly stunning and/or very pronounced and can easily compete with its regular-sized counterparts. These miniature VP-medals as intended for women can easily be graded 'very scarce' and are not often offered for sale.

The awards retain most of their original, silver- ie. golden- (ie. bronze-) toned finish: all three pieces are also just a bit dirty ie. tarnished, simply caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage: they are however never cleaned nor polished (see pictures). The 'Spange' is not 'backed' but is mounted on a silver-coloured and chrome-steel-based 'backing-plate' and comes mounted on its functional pin-/catch set-up (see pictures). The 'Spange' is most certainly a period-compiled and/or moderately worn piece and is NOT a post-war compilation: it originated as stated above from a private household and was kept as such for decades.

The - scarcely encountered! - 'Medaille des Deutschen Roten Kreuzes 1937' retains a fully preserved (and/or totally undamaged!) enamelled surface: this is also valid for the: 'Treuedienst Ehrenzeichen 1. Klasse' (or golden class, loyal-service medal for 40 yrs. of service): this award retains most of it high-polished- (and/or very shiny!) sides and has an undamaged swastika-area. The 'Spange' is neatly 'backed' with greenish-coloured-, felt-like wool and comes mounted on its functional pin-/catch set-up (see pictures). As stated above is this piece neatly maker-marked on the back: it retains a neat tailors'- ie. makers'-designation (ie. metal-'tag') on its back that reads: 'Wolf. Rob. Schwarz - Direkt am Weddingsplatz' (see pictures). The 'Spange' is most certainly a period-compiled and/or moderately worn piece and is NOT a post-war compilation: it originated as stated above from a private household and was kept as such for decades.
3-pieced medal-bar (or: 'Spange'), showing resp. an: 'EK II. Kl.' in 'Schinkel'-format, a: WH (Heeres ie. KM): 'DA 2. Stufe' (or loyal-service-medal as was intended for 18 years loyal-service) and a: 'Deutsches Schutzwall Ehrenzeichen' This is a truly decorative - and with certainty rarely encountered! - example of a 3-pieced WH (Heeres ie. Kriegsmarine) medal-bar (or: 'Spange'), showing respectively an: 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' (or Iron Cross second class) being a rarely seen early-example as executed in so-called: 'Schinkel'-format, a: 'Heeres' (ie. Kriegsmarine) 'Dienstauszeichnung 2. Stufe' (or loyal-service-medal as was intended for 18 years loyal-service) and a: 'Deutsches Schutzwall Ehrenzeichen' (aka 'Westwall'-medal), all three medals in an overall very nice, albeit moderatly used and/or worn-, condition. All three medals are very nice, detailed examples which seem to have never been cleaned nor polished: all three come in an equally tarnished- ie. dusty condition and also come on their period-mounted ribbons. The EK - which is mounted on its typical, orange-red-coloured ribbon retains a fully preserved black-coloured- (ie. somewhat satin-like-) 'inner-core' and has a somewhat tarnished silver-frame. It is as mentioned a piece of the (scarcely seen!) early-period 'Schinkel'-format. (Note: the differences between a 'Schinkel'-format cross - which is in fact a smaller variant as mounted in a WWI IC rim - and a regular type can easily be spotted when compared next to eachother). Both other medals retain most of their original, frosted silver- (ie. bronze-) toned finish: both are also just a bit dirty ie. tarnished, simply caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage. The DA comes naturally with its obligatory (silver-coloured) eagle-device attached. The 'Spange' is neatly 'backed' with greyish-blue-coloured wool and comes naturally mounted on its functional pin-/catch set-up - see pictures). The medal-bar was recently found at a private household and was never before in a collection. The 'Spange' is most certainly a period-compiled and/or worn piece and is NOT a post-war compilation: it originated from a private household and was kept as such for decades. Simply a very nice - and decorative! - 3-pieced medal-bar- ie. 'Spange' having an unusual combination that can easily be graded 'very scarce'.
3-pieced medal-bar (or: 'Spange'), showing resp. an: 'EK II. Klasse', an Austrian 'Anschluss' medal and a a Czech 'Anschluss' medal having a - neat and detailed! - 'Prager Burg'-bar attached The medal-bar (or: 'Spange') is a truly decorative piece that was recently found at a private houseghold: it was never before part of a collection. All three medals are very nice, decent examples and seem to have never been cleaned nor polished: all three (ie. four-) pieces come in an equally tarnished- ie. dusty condition and also come on their period-mounted ribbons. The 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' (or Iron Cross second class) retains a fully preserved (fairly matted-) black-coloured 'inner-core' and has a somewhat tarnished silver-frame whereas both 'Anschluss'-medals (ie. 'Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1.März 1938' and/or: or: 'Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1.Oktober 1938 mit Spange Prager Burg') retain most of their original, silver- ie. golden- (ie. bronze-) toned finish: all three pieces are also just a bit dirty ie. tarnished, simply caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage: they are however never cleaned nor polished (see pictures). The 'Spange' is 'backed' with bright-red-coloured wool and comes mounted on its functional pin-/catch set-up (see pictures). The 'Spange' is most certainly a period-compiled and/or worn piece and is NOT a post-war compilation: it originated as stated above from a private household and was kept as such for decades.

The Spanish medal comes with its period sword-device attached. All three ribbons are of the smaller (ie. regular-) ribbon-bar size and measure 1,5 cms. each as is more often encountered. The 'Spange' is in a nice condition overall and is of course fully functional: it is not backed but mounted on a 'crimped', copper-based metal-plate and retains its functional pin-/catch-attachment (see pictures). This particular example was IMO clearly worn ie. used: it does show some usage-marks and/or minimal aging ie. wear.

5-pieced WH (Heeres) medal-bar (or: 'Spange'), showing resp. an: 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Kl.', an 'Ost'-medal, a WH (Heeres) DA, a Czech Anschluss medal with PB-bar and a Bulgarian WWII commemorative medal: 'Za Chabrost' All five medals are nice examples that seem to have never been cleaned nor polished: all five come in an equally tarnished- ie. minimally dusty condition and also come mounted on their period-attached and/or nicely pre-folded ribbons. The - non-maker-marked - IC has a neat somewhat 'frosted' appearance and has a very bright age-patina: it retains some of its 'hochpolierte Kanten' (or polished-sides) and retains a fully preserved - ie. totally non-damaged - black-coloured- and/or somewhat matted 'inner-core'. The 'Ost'-medal (or: 'Medaille Winterschlacht im Osten' ie. Eastern Front medal) also retains most of its original, silver- and/or bluish-toned finish: it is also a tiny bit dirty ie. tarnished, simply caused by minimal wear and/or decades of storage. The 'Heeres' 'Dienst- auszeichnung 4. Stufe' (or loyal-service-medal as was intended for 4 years loyal-service) comes naturally with its firmly attached (silver-coloured albeit tarnished-) eagle-device in place and retains most of its silver-coloured finish. The Czech 'Anschluss'-medal (ie. 'Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938 mit Spange 'Prager Burg') retains most of its original golden- (ie. bronze-) toned finish (something that is also valid for the 'Prager Burg Spange' - see pictures). Last but not least does the 'Spange' show a neat golden-toned, Bulgarian WWII commemorative-medal called: 'Medal of Merit 3th Class' (being of the 1st grade with swords aka: 'Za Chabrost' or: 'For Bravery'). All five awards are non-maker-marked examples. The 'Spange' is neatly backed with bright-red-coloured wool and comes mounted on its functional pin-/catch set-up. The medal-bar was recently found at a private household and was never before in a collection. The 'Spange' is most certainly a period compiled and/or worn piece and is NOT a post-war compilation. In any case a nice - and decorative! - 5-pieced medal-bar- ie. 'Spange' that with certainty belonged to a German NCO!
5-pieced WWI-period medal-bar (or: 'Spange'), showing resp. an: 'EK II. Klasse', a 'FKK 1914-/18 m. Schw.', a (scarce!) 'For Schlesien'-medal and two Austrian/Hungarian medals attached The medal-bar (or: 'Spange') is a truly decorative WWI-related piece that was recently found at a private household: it was never before part of a collection. All five medals are very nice, decent examples and seem to have never been cleaned nor polished: all five pieces come in an equally tarnished- ie. dusty condition and also come on their period-mounted ribbons. The awards retain most of their original, silver- ie. golden- (ie. bronze- and/or black-) toned finish: all five pieces are also just a bit dirty ie. tarnished, simply caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage: they are however never cleaned nor polished (see pictures). The paint on the 'For Schlesien'-medal (which is also referred to as: 'Schlesisches Bewährungsabzeichen des Generalkommando des VI.Armeekorps' or: 'Silesian Eagle'-medal is often seen in German award-groupings and was also worn during the WWII-period - shows some moderate paint-damage (as is more often the case): it is however still very detailed and/or pronounced. The 'Spange' is neatly 'backed' with light-blue-coloured-, linnen-based cloth and comes mounted on its functional pin-/catch set-up (see pictures). The 'Spange' is most certainly a period-compiled and/or moderately worn piece and is NOT a post-war compilation: it originated as stated above from a private household and was kept as such for decades.
5-pieced, WH (Heeres- ie. Kriegsmarine) (ie. 'Legion Condor'-related-) medal-bar, showing respectively two WH (Heeres ie. KM) 'DA der 3. u. 4. Kl.', a Czech 'Anschluss'-medal and two Spanish Civil War-related medals The attractive piece depicts respectively the ribbons for a: WH (Heeres o. Kriegsmarine) 'Dienstauszeichnung für 12 Jahre Treue Dienste' (or or service-medal for twelve years of loyal service) and a WH (Heeres o. Kriegsmarine) 'Dienstauszeichnung für 4 Jahre Treue Dienste' (or or service-medal for four years of loyal service) both having their period-attached- and nicely detailed, golden- ie. silver-coloured eagle-device in place, a Czech so-called: 'Anschluss'-medal (or: 'Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938', as was awarded for the annexation of Czechoslovakia), a Spanish-issued, commemorative medal called: 'Cruz Roja del Mérito Militar' and a: 'Medalla de la Campaña 1936-1939'. All five ribbons are of the smaller, ribbon-bar size and measure approximately 1,4 cms. each as is more often encountered (the piece has a total length of approximately 7,4 cms.). The 'Spange' - which without any doubt was awarded to a German army- or navy-soldier - is in a nice condition overall and is of course fully functional: it is neatly backed with black-coloured wool and retains its functional pin-/catch-attachment (see pictures). This particular example was IMO clearly worn ie. used: it does show some usage-marks and/or minimal aging ie. wear. Simply an attractive and desirable 'Band-/Feldspange' that originated from a veteran from the famous 'Legion Condor'!
5-pieced, WH (Luftwaffe) (ie. 'Legion Condor'-related-) medal-bar (ie.: 'Spange') showing respectively a WH (LW) 'DA der 4. Kl.', two 'Anschluss'-decorations and two Spanish Civil War-related medals attached The medal-bar (or: 'Spange') is a truly decorative WWII-related piece that was IMO only moderately worn ie. used. All five medals are very nice, decent examples that seem to have never been cleaned nor polished: all five pieces come in an equally tarnished- ie. dusty condition and also come on their period-mounted- and/or correct ribbons. The awards retain most of their original, silver- ie. golden- (ie. bronze- and/or black-) toned finish (and have - partly - an undamaged enamelled surface): all five pieces are also just a bit dirty ie. tarnished, simply caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage: they are however never cleaned nor polished (see pictures). The 'Spange' shows respectively a: 'WH-Dienstauszeichnung der 4. Klasse für 4 Jahre Dienstzeit' (being a LW-issued piece that still shows a period-attached, silver-coloured, LW-type eagle-device in place), an Austrian occupation medal: '1 März 1938' (as was awarded to all members of the armed forces that participated in the German Austrian occupation that started on: '1 März 1938'), a Czech occupation medal: '1 October 1938' (as was awarded to all members of the armed forces that participated in the German occupation of Czechoslovakia, which started on 1 October 1938), a Spanish-issued, commemorative medal called: 'Cruz Roja del Mérito Militar' and a (also Spanish issued-) Spanish Civil War commemorative-medal called: 'Medalla de la Campaña 1936-1939'. The 'Spange' is neatly 'backed' with darker-green-coloured wool and comes mounted on its functional pin-/catch set-up (see pictures). The 'Spange' is most certainly a period-compiled and/or moderately worn piece and is NOT a post-war compilation or alike: ideal to 'upgrade' any (Luftwaffe-) tunic or to be kept in a medal- ie. 'Spange'-collection!
6-piece medal bar / 'Bandspange', resp. depicting the ribbons for a WWI EK1 Kl., a KvK 2. Kl. with swords, an Ost-medal, a WWI KTK, a WH (Heer) 'Dienstauszeichnung' with eagle-device attached and a Czech ‘Anschluss’ medal with ‘PB’-bar - nice condition!

Kl. with swords (‘Kriegsverdienst- kreuz 2 Klasse mit Schwerter’), an Ost-medal (‘Medaille Winterschlacht im Osten’), a WWI ‘Kriegsteilnehmerlreuz’), a WH (Heer) 'Dienstauszeichnung' having a silver-coloured eagle-device attached and a Czech ‘Anschluss’ medal having the (scarce!) ‘Prager Burg’ miniature bar attached, all in nice, albeit clearly used and worn condition. The six ribbons are of the smaller (ie. regular) ribbon-bar size and measure 1,5 cms. each. The attached devices show some regular tarnish and wear but are very detailed and nice. The spange is in nice condition (clearly worn and somewhat stained) and is naturally fully functional. A nice 'Bandspange' having an unusual set-up: ideal to 'upgrade' any (Heeres) tunic!
6-piece medal bar / 'Bandspange' - showing the ribbons for resp. an 'EK2', 'KvK', a 'WH (Heer or KM) Dienstauszeichnung', an 'NSDAP Dienstauszeichnung' and both 'Austrian-' and 'Czech Anschluss' medals - used condition! This is a neat, 6-piece medal bar or 'Bandspange', showing the ribbons for respectively an 'EK2. klasse', a 'KvK' 2nd. class with swords, a 'WH (Heer or KM) Dienstauszeichnung' with attached silver eagle device, an 'NSDAP Dienstauszeichnung' and both 'Austrian-' and 'Czech Anschluss' medals, in used condition. The ribbons are of the regular (1 cms. wide) version: the little eagle-device has great detail and a still retains a bit of its silver finish. The spange is in used condition and has a functional pin & catch. A nice - and fairly large - 'Bandspange': great to 'upgrade' any WH tunic!
9-pieced, 'high-quality' medal-bar (ie. 'Bandspange'), showing - amongst others - a WWI-period 'EK II.Klasse mit Wiederhohlungsspange' miniature (ie. 'Halbminiatur') and two 'Heeres o. KM Dienstauszeichnungen' both having attached eagle-devices Apart from the already mentioned decorations does the piece show respectively the following decorations: a: 'KvK II.Kl. mit Schw.', an: 'Ost'-medal, a: WWI-period 'Kriegsteilnehmer'-medal, two WWI-period Austrian medals and a: 'Westwall'-medal. All nine ribbons are of the smaller i.e. regular (1,5 cms. wide) version: all six attachments show some minimal tarnish and/or wear but are still very detailed and/or pronounced. The bar - which is neatly 'backed' with field-grey-coloured wool is in nice albeit moderately used condition (some staining is present and/or visible) and comes of course on its functional pin-/catch set-up. I deem that the presence of the rarely seen 'Wiederhohlungsspange Halbminiatur' merits the rather high asking-price: I obtained it for a lot of money myself but I simply wanted this neat and decorative item for the site. Simply a very attractive 'Bandspange' that with certainty belonged to an officer who showed bravoury in both world-wars: great to 'upgrade' any (officers'-) tunic!
A 3-piece WH set, comprising of 2 'Planzeiger für Wehr- und Geländedienst' ie. 'Zielgeviertafel' ('Z.m.P.') executed in 'Mica', that come in their original green-coloured, linnen-based pouch - overall nice & complete condition! This is a neat and desirable equipment item: a period WH maker-marked 3-piece set, comprising of 2 'Planzeiger für Wehr- und Geländedienst' ie. 'Zielgeviertafel' ('Z.m.P.') executed in 'Mica', that come in their original green-coloured, linnen-based pouch, in overall nice & complete condition. Both measuring instruments are executed in 'Mica' (some sort of early pre-war predecessor of plastic) and bear a date and/or code. The pouch - which is in wonderful condition and retains both functional snaps - bears a (white-coloured - and early!) 'Waffenabnahme' stamp and lettering: 'K.W.27 - IR'. Both 'mica' items show some regular discoloration as more often observed. These desirable sets were normally carried in (or attached to) the standard leather map-cases. A nice and unusual equipment item: hard to find a nicer example!
A-4 sized award-document for a 'Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1.Oktober 1938' ('Czech Anschluss' medal) awarded to the 'Kanonier d.R. Willi Pape, who served in the: 'Stab - Beob.Abt.24' - nice, albeit used condition! This is a nice (A-4 sized ie. 28 x 21 cms.) award-document as intended for a 'Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1.Oktober 1938' ('Czech Anschluss' medal) awarded (on 22 January 1940) to the 'Kanonier d.R. Willi Pape' who served in the: 'Stab - Beob.Abt.24', in nice, albeit clearly used condition. The document is in a clearly used condition: it is not denazified but regrettably 'hole-punched'. The document - which is folded - is somewhat yellowed from age and is somewhat 'restored' (cellotape remains). Of interest is the fact that the document is indiviually numbered: it bears the unique number: '30170'. It is signed by an (unnamed) captain ('Hauptmann') and bears the facimile signature of the units' commander, a 'General der Infanterie'. A nice and unusual award-document as handed-out to a 'Kanonier' (gunner) in a not that often encountered 'observer' unit: IMO did I price this document fairly!

Almost matching - albeit slightly moth-damaged - pair of WH (Heeres), IMO mid-war period (ie. 'M43'-type-) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps, as intended for a: 'Soldat der Infanterie-Truppen' The shoulderstraps - which have the field-grey coloured, woolen-based 'upperdecks' - have the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) and/or 'silk-like'-type piping attached and measure approximately 11,7 cms. in length each. They come mounted on their original tongues and are in a nice, ie. fully 'text-book' condition overall: one of the straps shows some obvious moth-damage as can be seen on the pictures. The straps - which were intended for a: 'Soldat der Infanterie-Truppen' (or simple army infantry soldier) show as stated above moderate usage (apart from the moth-damage some minimal age, dust and/or staining is present and/or visible). The pair is slightly mismatched but was most certainly worn as a pair as such.
Almost matching pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboards, as intended for a: 'Hauptmann der Propaganda-Truppen' (or captain within a propaganda-company ie. regiment) The shoulderboards - which are approximately 10,5 cms. sized in length each as more often encountered - are piped in the neat dove-grey- (ie. 'grauer'-) coloured-, velvet-type wool - and come mounted on their (typical officers'-type-) tongues. The pair shows 4 (identical, regular-sized and/or golden-toned-) pips period-attached, denoting the officers'-rank of: 'Hauptmann'. The pair has silverish-grey-coloured and/or fairly sub-dued-type 'upperdecks' making them IMO a set that was specifically intended for a 'regular-issue' army-tunic. The pieces are moderately used ie. worn and do show some moderate age, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). They were with certainty worn as a pair but do show some minor differences in style and/or execution. It should be noted that these 'Propaganda-Truppen'-related-, officers'-type shoulderboards are very hard to encounter and rank amongst the ones with the thoughest branchcolour to encounter: they can IMO easily graded: 'rare'.
Almost matching pair of WH (Heeres), IMO early-war period (ie. 'M36'-pattern- ie. rounded-style-) 'cyphered' NCO-type shoulderstraps, as intended for an: 'Unteroffizier eines Infanterie-Regiment der “Grossdeutschland”-Division' The atttractive pair is piped in the neat white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour and was as such as intended for - and worn by! - an: 'Unteroffizier eines Infanterie-Rgt. der “GD”-Division' (or junior-sergeant- and/or infantry-soldier who served within an infantry unit within the famous “Grossdeutschland”-Division. The pair is clearly worn as such and shows some obvious wear, age and/or staining. (Note: the branchcolour is definitely white although it has somewhat yellowed due to fair usage). The neat straps - which have the 'standard' darker-green-coloured and/or smooth woolen-based 'upperdecks' and are IMO 'standard-issued' straps - show the neat white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured- (and/or silk-like-type-) piping attached (which does show clear wear and/or age). The straps which measure approximately 11,4 (ie. 10,7-) cms. in length each, come mounted on their functional tongues and are of course in a very nice, ie. fully 'text-book' condition overall. The shoulderstraps shows the neat, machine-embroidered and/or white-coloured so-called: 'GD'-cyphers (which are fully matching - see pictures). The straps show the 'standard'-type, silver-coloured NCO-braid attached denoting the soldiers-rank of: 'Unteroffizier'. The straps shows - as stated above - clear usage ie. wear (some fair age, dust and/or staining is clearly visible and/or present). The pair originates from a private household in Germany and were carefully stored and kept as such for decades: the pair was never before in a collection and was with certainty worn as a pair. In any case is this a superb occasion to acquire a very nice and most certainly very desirable NCO-type, 'Infanterie'-GD-shoulderstrap-pair. It should be noted that these pairs are hardly offered for sale and can easily be graded 'very scarce'.
Almost matching pair of WH (Luftwaffe) NCO-type shoulderstraps as intended for - and worn by! - an: 'Unteroffizier der Flieger o. Fallschirm-Truppen' (ie. paratrooper- or pilot and/or junior NCO) The shoulderstraps are in all facets 'text-book'-examples which come in a nice condition overall: they are only moderately used. Both straps do not show any defaults whatsoever: just some regular usage ie. fair wear is noticable and/or present (see pictures). The straps measure approximately 10,3 cms. in length each and come mounted on their functional tongues. The pair - which differs minimally when carefully studied - shows the neat golden-yellow- (ie. goldgelbener-) coloured- and/or 'silk-like'-type piping attached and has the 'standard-type', silver-coloured NCO-braid attached denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Unteroffizier'.
Aluminium Waffen-SS buckle - maker-marked: 'RzM 822/38' - used condition This is an neat aluminium Waffen-SS buckle in used condition that is maker-marked: 'RzM 822/38'. The buckle is in clearly used - but still nice - condition, having a real nice age patina. Some of the details - which as surely known easily dissapeared by regular wear - are still very detailed and preserved. Some years ago these aluminium SS buckles were not copied yet: today also these are subject of forgery. This is a truly nice, (and original!) specimen. A nice SS buckle!

Aluminium WH (Heer) visor cap-eagle, dated (38) and mm 'G.B.' - used and damaged condition! This a WH (Heer) visor cap-eagle executed in aluminium, in used and regrettably damaged condition. Regrettably are all prongs missing (one of them is crudely replaced by means of glue!). The - nicely maker-marked ('G.B.') and '1938' dated - eagle shows normal wear and staining (dust/dirt) but has still nice details though. A nice piece to complete a visor-cap or just for storage in a collection. IMO priced according to its condition.

It comes on its (very shortened) piece of original cord as issued and worn. The soldiers' blood-group type (type 'A') is also figured on the disc. Of additional interest is the small-sized and unusual small-sized letter-type used on the disc. Simply a nice & honest LW disc that belonged to a soldier in a LW anti-aircraft unit!

This is surely an uncommon unit and scarce disc. The disc bears the soldiers' bloodgroup (type A) and is in clearly used condition. A nice and surely scarce ID-disc!
Aluminium 'Polizei' belt-buckle on its leather tab by 'Berg & Nolte' dated: '1937' that comes with a small part of its white coloured belt (broken off) - very nice condition! This is a very nice example of an aluminium, 'tabbed', 'Polizei' belt-buckle as produced by the 'Berg & Nolte' company', that comes with a tiny part of its original semi-leather (white coloured!) belt in very nice condition. The buckle is neatly stamped ('B & N') and comes on its natural coloured leather tab (mm and dated '1937'). The tab is souple and in almost mint condition. This buckle came with a tiny part of a white/creme coloured belt that is regrettably broken-off (the aluminium catch is still present and mm 'G.T.D.' and 'D.R.G.M.). The buckle is in a very nice condition overall: just some very minor scratches and dirt casued by years of storage. A nice pre-war 'Polizei' buckle!
Aluminium 'Polizei' belt-buckle on its leather tab by 'OLC' that comes on its original leather belt (mm and dated 1940) as worn and used - very nice condition! This is a very nice example of an aluminium, 'tabbed', 'Polizei' belt-buckle by 'OLC', that comes on its original leather belt (mm and dated 1940) in very nice condition.

The belt bears the larger aluminium catch, typical for police i.e. 'Polizei' usage: regrettably is this aluminum catch broken i.e. 'cracked' (but still functional). The aluminium buckle is stamped with the 'OLC' logo and is in very nice condition overall: just some minor scratches and dirt. The set was found as such and was always together. A nice opportunity to acquire a genuine 'Police' belt/buckle set!
Aluminium 'Polizei' visor-cap eagle, neatly maker-marked: 'O.L.G.' - used but overall very nice condition! This is a sligthly used example of an aluminium visor-cap eagle, as intended for wear on the various 'Polizei' visor-caps.

This one was surely worn but carefully cap-removed at a certain time: both (fully functional) copper-toned prongs are present. The detail is really extraordinary: the piece shows some normal aging and dirt. A nice & honest example!

The buckle is neatly 'RzM 4/44' marked but is furthermore void of an additional makers' logo nor stamp. This example retains some of its original (almost greenish-coloured) anodized green finish but shows the obvious signs of having been worn: the overall detail, however, is still present. A nice 'Werkschar' ie. 'DAF' buckle!
Aluminium-based WH (Luftwaffe) ID-disc bearing the stamped inscription: 'L.Flak - Abt.75 3.Battr.nr.93', that comes on its shortened original cord as issued & worn - nice, albeit clearly used condition! This is a neat, aluminium-based WH (Luftwaffe) ID-disc, as intended for and worn by a soldier of the: 'L.Flak - Abt.75 3.Battr.nr.93' (being IMO the third company of a 'light' LW anti-aircraft unit, numbered '75').

It comes on its (very shortened) piece of original cord as issued and worn. Simply a nice & honest LW disc that belonged to a soldier in a LW anti-aircraft unit!
Aluminium-based, 'S.H.D.'- (ie. 'Sicherheits- u. Hilfsdienst'-) related ID-disc that comes mounted on its original cord as issued and/or worn, bearing the neatly stamped unit-signification that reads: 'VI 11 491 S.H.D.' The ID-disc - which is executed in a neat and/or clearly pronounced letter-type - was clearly worn and comes as found and was never cleaned nor polished: it shows however moderate usage (somewhat 'torn-out holes'). The disc is void of the soldiers' bloodgroup-type and is still a bit dirty ie. stained (it was however never cleaned nor polished and comes as recently found). It should be noted that these ID-discs as belonging to one of the more unknown and/or obscure TR-organisations such as this 'Sicherheits- u. Hilfsdienst' can easily be graded 'rare'.
Aluminium-based, WH (Heeres) ie. 'Nachrichten'-related- ID-disc, bearing the stamped unit-designation: 'Fu Kp. a m 2/26' This is an attractive example of a ('standard-issued'-pattern- and/or aluminium-based-) WH (Heeres) ie. 'Nachrichten'- (ie. signals-) related- ID-disc, that bears the stamped unit-designation: 'Fu Kp. a m 2/26' (and as such was IMO a disc that was IMO intended for a soldier ie. NCO within a specific 'Nachrichten-related (ie. radio or: 'Funk'-) company, numbered: '2/226'). The disc is in overall nice - albeit worn - condition and shows the clear evidence of having been fairly used ie. worn (it shows fairly 'torn-out'-holes as can be seen on the pictures). The disc also shows the bearers'-blood-group: type '0'. I deem that this interesting ID-disc merits further investigative work.
Aluminium-based, WH (Luftwaffe) (ie. IMO pilot- ie. 'Flieger'-) related ID-disc that comes mounted on its original cord as issued and/or worn, bearing the neatly stamped unit-signification that reads: 'Lw.Kdo.Ostpr.' (ie. 'LW-Kommando OstPreussen') The ID-disc - which is executed in a neat and/or clearly pronounced letter-type - was clearly worn and comes as found and was never cleaned nor polished: it shows however moderate usage (somewhat 'torn-out holes'). The disc is void of the soldiers' bloodgroup-type and is still a bit dirty ie. stained (it was however never cleaned nor polished and comes as recently found).
Aluminium-based, WH (Luftwaffe) ID-disc, that is neatly stamped ie. engraved: 'Lw.BauKp. 15/XII' - nice, albeit clearly used and worn condition! This is a neat, aluminium-based, WH (Luftwaffe) ID-disc, that is neatly stamped ie. engraved: 'Lw.BauKp. 15/XII', in overall nice, albeit clearly used and worn condition. The unit is IMO some sort of Luftwaffe-related 'Pioniere' (Bau) i.e. construction-/engineers unit. The disc is in overall nice and clearly worn condition (some staining and dirt is visible simply caused by wear and decades of storage). The disc is IMO nvere cleaned nor polished as is still a bit dirty. The disc also bears the soldiers blood-group type, being type: ‘A’. The disc is engraved in a very neat letter-type. Simply a nice and unusual Luftwaffe 'Pioniere' related disc that is IMO accordingly priced!
Aluminium-based, WH (Luftwaffe) ID-disc, that is neatly stamped: 'Lw.Baug.Zug 15/IV' - nice, albeit clearly used and worn condition! This is a neat, aluminium-based, WH (Luftwaffe) ID-disc, that is neatly stamped: 'Lw.Baug.Zug 15/IV', in overall nice, albeit clearly used and worn condition. The unit is IMO some sort of 'Pioniere' (Bau) i.e. construction-/engineers unit. The disc is in overall nice and clearly worn condition (some staining and dirt is visible simply caused by wear and decades of storage). The disc is void of a bloodgroup and was IMO cleaned ie. polished. Of additional interest is the fact that the soldier who wore it was once (or twice) given a new number: the disc is clearl: 'Umnumiert'. Still a nice and unusual Luftwaffe 'Pioniere' related disc that is IMO accordingly priced.
Aluminium-based, WH (Luftwaffe) pilot-related ID-disc: ‘4./Flg.Ausb.Batl.26' - used & clearly worn condition! This is a neat, aluminium-based, WH (Luftwaffe) pilot-related ID-disc bearing the engraved text: ‘4./Flg.Ausb.Batl.26', in clearly used and worn condition. The disc - which is a bit dirty - comes as found and is in clearly used and never cleaned condition (showing some minor staining caused by normal wear). The engraving: ‘4./Flg.Ausb.Batl.26' signifies IMO that the bearer belonged to the 4th company of a pilot-training batallion, numbered: '26'. Simply a nice an original 'Luftwaffe ' ID-disc!
Aluminium-based, WH (Luftwaffe- or Heeres) ID-disc that is neatly stamped: '3./Bau btl. 210', that comes on its original cord as worn - nice, albeit clearly used and worn condition! This is a neat, aluminium-based, WH (Luftwaffe- or Heeres) ID-disc that is neatly stamped: '3./Bau btl. 210', that comes on its original cord as worn, in overall nice, albeit clearly used and worn condition. The unit is IMO some sort of 'Pioniere' (Bau) i.e. construction unit. The disc is in overall nice and clearly worn condition (some staining and light corrosion is visible simply caused by wear). The disc is void of a blood-group. A nice and unusual 'Pioniere' related disc that is IMO accordingly priced.
Aluminium-based, WH (Luftwaffe- or Heeres??) ID-disc that is neatly stamped with a name only: 'Hausberger Jakob’ - nice, albeit clearly used and worn condition! This is a neat, WH (Luftwaffe- or Heeres??) ID-disc, that is neatly stamped with a name only that reads: 'Hausberger Jakob’, in overall nice, albeit clearly used and worn condition. The fact that this (typical WWII-period) disc only shows a name is very unusual and never before encountered by me: it might possibly also be a disc that was used by one of the other various TR-organisations. The disc is in overall nice and clearly worn condition (some staining and light corrosion is visible simply caused by wear). The disc is also void of a blood-group. A nice and unusual ID-disc that surely merits further investigation and is IMO accordingly priced.
Aluminium-based, WH (Luftwaffe?) ID-disc that is engraved/stamped: '2./Bau 247' (period altered in: '227'!) that comes on its original cord as worn - nice, albeit clearly used and worn condition! This is a neat, aluminium-based, WH (Luftwaffe?) ID-disc that is engraved/stamped: '2./Bau 247' (period altered in: '227'!) that comes on its original cord as worn, in overall nice, albeit clearly used and worn condition. The unit is IMO some sort of 'Pioniere' (Bau) i.e. construction unit. The disc is in overall nice and clearly worn condition (some staining and light corrosion). The disc is void of a blood-group. A nice and unusual 'Pioniere' related disc that is IMO accordingly priced.
Aluminium-based: RLB (ie. 'Reichsluftschutzbund') belt-buckle of the third and final pattern, being a neat non-maker-marked example The buckle shows clear usage and/or fair wear and has lost most of its silver-coloured finish and showing its aluminium-based 'underlay': the details, however, are still very nice and/or pronounced (see pictures). The piece - which is executed in sprayed, aluminium-based metal - naturally retains a functional catch-set-up and can as such be used. The piece is as stated a non-marked example that was never cleaned nor polished (it still shows the dust- and/or dirt ie. minimal rust-staining as acquired over the years but has never been cleaned: it comes as recently found). It should be mentioned that these aluminium-based-, 'Reichsluftschutzbund'-belt-buckles of the third and final pattern can be easily graded: 'scarce'.
Armband 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' - stained & used condition! This is a golden-yellow coloured cotton armband used by staff-members (and designated civilians) of the German armed forces, i.e. 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'. The band is nicely woven in a technique similar to the BeVo weave technique. The band - which is executed in more thicker, course cotton is IMO in clearly used condition and shows some (water?) staining. Still a decent example that IMO is fairly priced!
Armband 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' having attached black-coloured '1'& '4' cyphers - nice, albeit clearly used condition! This is a nice and unusual item: a 'standard-type' Armband 'Deutsche Wehrmacht', having two black-coloured '1' and '4' cyphers originally attached, in nice, albeit clearly used, condition. These golden-yellow coloured cotton armbands were used by staff-members of the German armed forces, i.e. 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'. The band is nicely woven in a technique similar to the BeVo weave technique on yellow cotton. It also bears a stamp, which is regrettably impossible to decypher. The band is somewhat dirty from regular usage. A nice and surely unusual example!
Armband for employees working in the State's service - nice, albeit slightly used & worn condition! This is a nice example of a yellow-coloured, linnen-based armband (executed in the thicker cloth) as intended for officials- and designated employees working in the state's service. The armband - which has a total length of 35 cms. - has the interwoven black-coloured eagle on a yellow background, and is executed in a technique similar to the neat 'BeVo-weave' production technique. The detail on the - left facing! - eagle is really stunning. A truly nice example that is hard to upgrade!
Armband for employees working in the State's service - nice, slightly used condition! This is a yellow-cotton armband (thicker cloth) intended for official- and designated employees working in the state's service. The band has the interwoven black eagle on yellow, and is executed in a technique similar to the BeVo weave technique. The detail on the - left facing! - eagle is really stunning. A truly nice example that shows only minor wear!
Armband for employees working in the State's service, still having an attached 'RzM-etiket' - nice, almost mint condition! This is a yellow-coloured, linnen armband (executed in thicker cloth) as intended for official- and designated employees working within the State's service. The band - which measures 38 cms. - shows the interwoven black eagle on yellow, and is executed in a technique similar to the 'BeVo'- weave technique. The detail of the - left facing! - interwoven eagle is really stunning. The piece still has its original paper 'RzM'-etiket attached ('D-Stück') and cannot be upgraded. A truly nice example!

Armband 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' - nice, only slightly used condition! This is a nice example of the golden-yellow coloured cotton armband used by staff-members (and designated civilians) of the German armed forces, i.e. 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'. The band is nicely woven in a technique similar to the BeVo weave technique. The band - which is executed in fine cotton - is IMO in only slighty used condition and shows some normal age and/or staining. A nice example!
Armshield (of the rarely seen second pattern!) as executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern, depicting the interwoven 'Cyrillic' characters: 'TB' as was intended for a Russian volunteer within the 'Terek Cossacks' The shield is in a very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued- and/or-) condition and comes as 'straightly cut of the role': it shows the black-/blue-coloured shield with above the interwoven 'Cyrillic' characters: 'TB'. Simply a truly rarely encountered piece of eastern volunteer related insignia: one of the more harder to encounter specimen of the colourfull series!

Attractive 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, (IMO 'Buntmetall'-based-) version by an unidentified maker (having a 'variant hinge-plate') - overall very nice (albeit used ie. worn-) condition! This is a truly attractive - and IMO only moderately used ie. worn - example of an: 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, IMO 'Buntmetall'-based- example by a still unidentified maker, having a seldomly seen 'variant hinge-plate', in overall nice, albeit moderately issued- ie. worn, condition. The neat badge is IMO a 'Buntmetall'-based- example that has lost some of its original, silver-coloured finish: it has however still a nice age-patina and was probably cleaned ie. polished over the years (and shows some of its copper-based underlay). This particular example comes naturally mounted on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-coloured-) pin (which is mounted on a neat 'variant hinge-plate' - see pictures). The piece is still very detailed and has a very pronounced appearance: the award has IMO been clearly used and is void of any damage or alike. This particular piece originated from a private household in Germany and was never before in collector-hands. I deem that this piece can most certainly be further attributed to a maker if wanted or deemed needed. In any case a very attractive and honest GAB that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based so-called 'massive-back-version' by a still unidentified maker This is a truly attractive - albeit moderately used ie. worn - example of an: 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based so-called 'massive-back-version' by a (by me) still unidentified maker, in overall nice, albeit moderately used ie. worn, condition. The badge is typical zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based example that retains most of its (shiny) silver-coloured finish as more often: it has a typical greyish-/brown coloured age-patina as more often observed. This particular example comes naturally munted on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-coloured-) pin (which is mounted on a typical 'mounting' and/or 'welded-on'- catch on a round-shaped place as is more often seen). The piece is still very detailed and has a very pronounced appearance: the award has IMO been moderately used and shows some wear on the obvious higher areas: it is moreover quite dirty but was most certainly never cleaned nor polished. It originated from a private household in Germany and was never before in collector-hands. In any case a very attractive and honest GAB that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based so-called 'massive-back-version' by: 'Alois Rettenmaier' - overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition! This is a truly attractive - albeit moderately used ie. worn - example of an: 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based so-called 'massive-back-version' that was produced by the maker: 'Alois Rettenmaier', in overall nice, albeit moderately used ie. worn, condition. The badge is typical zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based example that has lost most of its silver-coloured finish as more often: it has a typical greyish-/silverish coloured age-patina with some period finish remaining. This particular example comes naturally on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-coloured-) pin (which is mounted on a typical 'mounting' and 'welded-on'- catch as is more often seen). The piece is still very detailed and has a very pronounced appearance: the award has IMO been moderately used and shows some wear on the obvious higher areas: it is moreover quite dirty but was most certainly never cleaned nor polished. It originated from a private household in Germany and was never before in collector-hands. I deem that this particular example can be attributed to the maker: 'Alois Rettenmaier'. In any case a very attractive and honest GAB that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based version by an unidentified maker - overall very nice (albeit minimally used ie. worn-) condition! This is a truly attractive - and IMO only minimally used ie. worn - example of an: 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being IMO an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based example that was IMO produced by the: 'Rudolf Karneth'-company, in overall very nice condition. The badge is typical zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based example that reatins most of its (quite shiny!) silver-coloured finish: it has a nice age-patina and has never been cleaned nor polished. This particular example comes naturally on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-coloured-) pin (which is mounted on a typical 'crimped mounting' as is more often seen). The piece is still very detailed and has a very pronounced appearance: the award has IMO been only minimally used and is void of any damage or alike. This particular piece originated from a private household in Germany and was never before in collector-hands. In any case a very attractive and honest GAB by the 'RK'-company that is IMO accordingly priced!

Attractive 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz' (DRK) insignia-grouping, comprising of a greyish, triangular-shaped tunic-eagle entitled: 'Rastatt 4' and dito armband, both as executed in the 'BeVo'-weave pattern - overall nice (ie. used-/worn-) condition! This is an attractive 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz' (DRK) (or German Red Cross) 2-pieced insignia-grouping, comprising of a greyish, triangular-shaped tunic-eagle (entitled: 'Rastatt 4') and dito armband showing a red-cross and surrounded by the interwoven text: 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz' , both insignia as executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern, both insignia in overall nice (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-) condition. Both insignia originated from a private household in Germany and were always together: they were most certainly worn and/or kept as such for decades. Of interest is the fact that both pieces show the (typical) metal 'snaps' with which they could be easily attached (and/or removed) from the tunic (ie. dress). The armband - which measures in total 36,5 cms. - is a tiny bit stained but still retains bright and/or vivid colours and was 'hand-sewn'-sewn together (see pictures). The eagle is equally used (ie. stained) and is nicely backed with light grey 'DRK' wool (as per regulation). The badge was intended for medical staff working at one of the medical institutes based in 'Rastatt' ie. its surroundings. These nicely woven DRK triangles are considered scarce. Simply a nice 2-pieced insignia-grouping: ideal for the DRK collector!
Attractive 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Bronze' (or bronze IAB), being a maker- (ie. 'Sh.u.Co. 41'-) marked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) version ie. 'variant', as was procuded by the: 'Sohni, Heubach & Co.'-company This is a truly attractive - albeit IMO moderately used ie. worn - example of an: 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Bronze' (or bronze infantry assault-badge ie. IAB), being a neat maker- (ie. 'Sh.u.Co. 41'-) marked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) version ie. 'variant', as was procuded by the: 'Sohni, Heubach & Co.'-company, in overall nice (albeit minimally used ie. worn-) condition. The badge is typical zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based example that retains most of its (light-coloured-) brownish-bronze-coloured finish: it has a typical and/or nicely preserved age-patina. This particular example comes naturally mounted on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-coloured-) pin which shows a typical mounting and/or catch as to be expected. The piece is truly very detailed and has a very pronounced appearance: the award has IMO been moderately used and shows some minimal wear ie. dirt on some the obvious higher-placed areas: it was however most certainly never cleaned nor polished. It originated from a private household in Germany and was never before in collector-hands. The maker of this particular IAB is the: 'Sohni, Heubach & Co.'-company and it deals with an uncommonly encountered 'variant' that shows fully visible- (albeit vaguely stamped-) makers'-mark (see pictures). In any case a very attractive and honest IAB that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber' (ie. infantry assault badge or IAB) in silver, being a neat unmarked, 'Feinzink'-based and/or vaulted, so-called 'semi-hollow' example - overall nice (albeit used ie. worn) condition! This is a very nice and attrative example of an 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber' (ie. infantry assault badge in silver or IAB), being a neat unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based and/or quite vaulted, so-called 'semi-hollow' example, in overall nice (albeit used ie. worn-) condition. This example is executed in zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink') and is a non maker-marked specimen (as usual): it has a 'typical' catch- and hinge set-up and is of the 'semi-hollow'-type (as is clearly noticable on the back). I deem that this example can be attributed to the (rarely seen!) maker: 'Ernst Müller'. The badge seems to be totally uncleaned and has a still a nice age (ie. zinc-like-) age-patina showing some remains of its silver-sprayed finish: the pin and catch (set-up) are of course fully functional and were never altered nor replaced. This example has lost most of its silverish finish on the front (which is more often seen with these zinc IAB's) but retains truly very nice and crisp detail overall. Simply a nice and honest IAB that was never before in a collection and which originates from a private house-hold where it was recently uncovered!
Attractive 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber' (or silver IAB), being a maker- (ie. 'F.u.C.'-) marked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) version ie. 'variant', as was procuded by the: 'Dr. Franke u.

'Feinzink'-) based example that has lost most of its silver-coloured finish: it has a typical and 'fairly dull' age-patina as more often seen with IABs by this maker. This particular example comes naturally on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-coloured-) pin which shows a typical mounting and/or catch as to be expected. The piece is very detailed and has a very pronounced appearance: the award has IMO been moderately used and shows some wear ie. dirt on some the obvious higher-placed areas: it was however most certainly never cleaned nor polished.

This particular example comes naturally on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-coloured-) pin which shows a typical 'crimped' mounting and/or catch as to be expected.

Attractive 'Reichssportabzeichen DRL in Bronze' (or: DRL sports'-badge in bronze), being an example that is nicely maker- (ie. 'Wernstein - Jena'-) marked on the back The attractive badge is of the version with swastika and retains almost all of its (minimally darkened-, truly golden-bronze-coloured-) finish. As stated is the badge nicely maker-marked: 'Wernstein/Jena' and bears the 'DRGM' text and/or number on the back, as usually encountered. The badge - which has a fully functional pin- and/or pin-catch set-up - was IMO never cleaned nor polished and retains a minimally darkened- and/or untouched age-patina (see pictures). Simply a very nice example that is impossible to upgrade!

Attractive 'SA-Sportabzeichen', being an example of the bronze class, that is neatly maker-marked on the back: 'R.Sieper u. Söhne' - overall nice (albeit clearly used ie. worn-) condition! This is an attractive example of an 'SA-Sportabzeichen' (or SA sportsbadge), being an example of the bronze class, that is neatly maker-marked on the back with the makers'-signification: 'R.Sieper u. Söhne', in overall nice albeit IMO moderately used ie. worn-, condition. The badge is nicely maker-marked on the back: 'R.Sieper u. Söhne' but is void of a bearers'-number (which is not uncommon and more often observed with these by 'R.S.u.S.'-produced badges). On the back of the sword the text: 'Eigentum der Oberste SA Führung' can be encountered (see pictures). The badge only shows some minimal wear and/or age but still retains most of its original (quite glossy!) bronze-toned finish: it shows a nice darkened 'age-patina'. The piece has IMO never been cleaned ie. polished and has as stated an attractive, 'shiny' appearance. Simply a very nice and honest example that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive 'Westwall'-medal (ie. 'Deutsches Schutzwall Ehrenzeichen') that comes together with its ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') and/or carton-based pouch by the (unusual) maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'August Pichl - Innsbruck' This is a truly attractive - and IMO fairly early-war period- albeit non-maker-marked - example of a: 'Westwall'-medal (ie. 'Deutsches Schutzwall Ehrenzeichen') that comes together with its accompanying (full length- and non-confectioned-, albeit folded and/or approximately 19 cms. long-sized-) ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') and/or carton-based pouch by the (usually encountered!) Austrian-based maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'August Pichl - Innsbruck', in overall very nice- and albeit most certainly issued- albeit IMO never worn-, condition. The medal was never cleaned nor polished and truly shows great pronouned detail. I deem this an early piece that was surely handed-out but that was never worn. The ribbon (which is nicely golden-brownish coloured-) is as stated minimally confectioned and was never mounted onto the medal. Strangely enough is it sometimes more difficult to obtain an original piece of ribbon than the medal itself. The piece came stored in its genuine- (and/or complete-) pouch of issue (as was constructed from brownish-coloured-, so-called: 'Zellstoff'-based material as to be expected) that shows a neat printed makers-mark on the back that reads: 'August Pichl - Innsbruck'. The pouch is fully undamaged but shows some moderate age- and/or wear (see pictures). Of additional interest is moreover the fact that this piece came still packed in its piece of period wrapping-paper (see pictures). Simply a very attractive and IMO early-issued and/or complete 'Westwall'-medal-set which is hard to be upgraded!
Attractive (albeit non-maker-marked- and IMO early war-period!) example of a black wound-badge (or: 'Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz') - overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition! This is an attractive (albeit non-maker-marked- and IMO early war-period-) example of a black wound-badge (or: 'Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz'), in overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition. The badge shows some moderate wear ie. age but retains most of its original black (and fairly 'shiny'!) painted ie. sprayed, black-coloured surface (see pictures). The wound-badge is as stated a non-maker-marked example which is executed in copper-based metal. Of course are the (regular- ie. thin-shaped- and/or also copper-based-) pin and/or (typical!) catch (-set-up) fully functional and of course present. This piece has never been cleaned nor polished: it shows some minimal dirt and dust (mainly visible on the back). Simply an attractive, non-maker-marked and with certainty early war-period black wound-badge: hard to find a nicer example for a more interesting price!

Attractive (albeit non-maker-marked-) example of a black wound-badge (or: 'Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz') - overall very nice (IMO virtually mint- and/or hardly used ie. worn-) condition! This is a very attractive (albeit non-maker-marked-) example of a black wound-badge (or: 'Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz'), in overall very nice (IMO virtually mint- and/or hardly used ie. worn-) condition. The badge shows truly minimal wear ie. age but retains most of its original black (and fairly 'matted'!) painted ie. sprayed, black-coloured surface (see pictures). The wound-badge is as stated a non-maker-marked example which is executed in magnetic-based metal. Of course are the (regular- ie. thin-shaped- and/or also metal-based-) pin and/or (typical!) catch (-set-up) fully functional and of course present.

Simply an attractive, non-maker-marked black wound-badge: hard to find a nicer example for a more interesting price!
Attractive (and IMO 'variant-type') WH (Heer/Waffen-SS) so-called: 'Krim' campaign-shield that comes mounted on its piece of field-grey coloured wool - very nice (IMO only minimally used ie. tunic-removed-) condition! This is a truly very nice - and detailed! - example of the WH (Heer and/or Waffen-SS) 'Krim' campaign-shield (being IMO a 'variant-type') that comes mounted on its piece of field-grey coloured and/or woolen-based cloth as issued and IMO most certainly worn ie. tunic-removed-, condition. The shield comes naturally complete with its metal back-plate and has all its four prongs in place. The shield still retains its protective (beige-coloured-) paper- (ie. Zellstoff-) based 'backing' (something that is not always encountered). Although this piece - which is minimally 'converse-shaped' as more often encountered - is in a moderately used condition, it has maintained truly superb detail and has an almost complete golden-toned ie. bronze-like finish in place. It has IMO never been cleaned nor polished: it is just a tiny bit dusty and dirty caused by decades of storage and/or wear. The 'higer'-placed areas show some truly minimal wear and age, simply caused by usage and wear. Simply a very nice and original example with lots of character: hard to find a better and/or nicer 'variant-type' -example for a more interesting price!
Attractive (and IMO 'variant-type') WH (Heer/Waffen-SS) so-called: 'Krim' campaign-shield that comes mounted on its piece of field-grey coloured wool - very nice (IMO virtually mint-) condition! This is a truly very nice - and very detailed! - example of the WH (Heer and/or Waffen-SS) 'Krim' campaign-shield (being IMO of a 'variant-type') that comes mounted on its piece of field-grey coloured and/or woolen-based cloth as issued albeit never worn nor tunic-attached, condition. The shield comes naturally complete with its metal back-plate and has all its four prongs in place. The shield still retains its protective (beige-coloured-) paper- (ie. Zellstoff-) based 'backing' (something that is not always encountered). Although this piece - which is minimally 'converse-shaped' as more often encountered - was IMO issued, it has maintained truly superb detail and has an almost complete golden-toned ie. bronze-like finish in place: I can easily grade this one 'mint'. It has IMO never been cleaned nor polished: it is just a tiny bit dusty and dirty caused by decades of storage. The back of the shield shows an old (inventory?) price that reads: '12,- '. Simply a very nice and original example with lots of character: hard to find a better and/or nicer 'variant-type' -example for a more interesting price!
Attractive (and rarely encountered!) Dutch, Waffen-SS- ie. volunteer-related recruiting-brochure ie. booklet, entitled: 'Volg de roepstem van eer en geweten!' This is an attractive - and actually truly rarely encountered! - Dutch-language-based example of a Waffen-SS ie. volunteer-related so-called: recruiting-brochure ie. booklet, which is entitled: 'Volg de roepstem van eer en geweten!', that comes in an overall very nice (albeit used but fully complete-) condition. The decorative (and 8-paged) 'soft-covered' brochure is in a nice - and as stated above - fully complete condtion and shows no real damage whatsoever. The booklet is sized: 21 x 13,5 cms. and is just somewhat yellowed caused by normal age and/or usage. The text is (of course) in Dutch language and provides the reader with all sorts of interesting information (and/or pictures!) on the subject matter and provides the various training possibilities, salaries, information on 'how to become an officer', awards and decorations and other more 'general' information such as an 'entry'-form (which is printed on the last page and which can be cut-out and sent). I know by experience (I collect these volunteer-brochures myself) that nice examples of this rarely seen brochure (which was is quite early and was IMO issued somewhere in mid 1942) are very hard to come by. Simply a very nice Dutch volunteer ie. Waffen-SS-related item: only the second such rarely seen Waffen-SS-related publication I ever had on offer!
Attractive - 'standard-pattern'-, WH (Heeres, LW, Waffen-SS etc.) WWII-period- wrist-watch (or: 'Dienstuhr') of the make: 'Arsa', having a black-coloured dial-plate and having an engraved serial-number (that reads: 'D 7052 H') on its back These attractive service-watches - having a standard 15- or 17- jewel movement - were distributed at a very limited scale to the various soldiers (ie. NCOs and/or officers!) of the: 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' and were properly entered in both 'Wehrpass' and/or: 'Soldbuch'. They had to be engraved with a 'DH'-numbering on the back something that is the abbreviation of: 'Deutsches Heer' (as can be seen on this example on offer here). This particular example shows a clear and/or undamaged glass-based surface and has the (serial-) number: 'D 7052 H' engraved on its back (see pictures). The piece on offer here - which shows the maker-mark: 'Arsa - Wasserdicht - Stossgesichert' comes with a black-coloured (and/or fully undamaged- albeit minimally faded-) dial having a subsidiary 'seconds'-dial at the 6 o'clock position. The piece has a nice (albeit moderately used-) steel-based casing (which is executed in chrome-coloured, nickle-silver metal): it just shows some regular wear and age, simply caused by moderate wear and/or age. As stated is the piece functional and in running condition and comes mounted on its period-, brownish-coloured- and/or smooth-styled, leather-based- armband attached (which is almost certainly a post-war-replaced- but truly neat example). It should be noted that these attractive 'WH-Dienstuhren' can easily be graded 'scarce'.

Attractive - albeit as more often unmarked - example of a pre-war-period SA (ie. 'Sturmabteilungen') copper- (ie. 'Messing'-) based belt-buckle, being a 'variant'-pattern- ie. 'two-pieced'-example This is a truly attractive - albeit as more often seen unmarked - example of a pre-war-period-, so-called: SA (ie. 'Sturmabteilungen') copper- (ie. 'Messing'-) based belt-buckle, being a 'variant'-pattern- ie. 'two-pieced'- example having a separate (and/or bright shiny- and chromed-steel-based 'front-plate' attached), that comes in an overall nice, albeit moderately worn and/or totally uncleaned, condition. The buckle - having a 'regular'-shaped swastika - is still a bit dirty and shows some dust and/or staining as acquired over the years. The buckle is of the 'variant'-pattern- (ie. 'two-pieced'-construction) and was (luckily) never cleaned nor polished. The piece - which is void of any makers'-mark or logo (as is more often encountered) - shows nice and/or pronounced detail but also shows the obvious signs of having been moderately worn (it is still a bit dusty as found and comes as stored for decades). Simply an attractive example of an SA belt-buckle that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - albeit clearly used ie. worn! - example of a WH (Heeres) field-grey-coloured and/or IMO early-war period- (ie. '1940' dated-) steel-based-, 'tropical-issue' belt-buckle as was produced by the: 'GB'- (ie. 'Gustav Brehmer') company This is an attractive - albeit clearly used ie. worn! - example of a WH (Heeres) and with certainty DAK- (ie. 'Deutsches Afrika Korps'-) related field-grey-coloured and/or early-war period- (ie. '1940'-dated-) steel-based, 'tropical-issue' belt-buckle that comes with its period-attached greenish-coloured, 'webbing-based' tab, as was produced by the: 'GB'- (ie. 'Gustav Brehmer') company, in overall very nice (albeit clearly used ie. worn-) condition. The buckle was most certainly issued and/or heavingly worn but still retains a fair bit of its (as always quite dark-coloured-) sprayed colour: just some normal scratching and/or paint-loss (ie. rust-staining) is noticable and/or present. The piece is still a bit dirty (and shows some stained areas as mentioned) but was most certainly never cleaned and comes as found. The buckle shows a typical: 'GB'-logo ie. stamp (visible on the back but hidden by the tab) denoting that it deals with a tropical-issue belt-buckle that was produced by the: 'Gustav Brehmer' company. Simply a very nice and desirable 'Heeres'-tropical-style buckle that is IMO priced according to its clearly used ie. moderately worn condition!
Attractive - albeit clearly used ie. worn! - example of a WH (Heeres) field-grey-coloured and/or IMO early-war period- and/or steel-based-, 'tropical-issue' belt-buckle as was produced by the: 'R.S.& S.'- (ie. 'Richard Sieper u. Söhne'-) company This is an attractive - albeit clearly used ie. worn! - example of a WH (Heeres) and with certainty DAK- (ie. 'Deutsches Afrika Korps'-) related- and field-grey-coloured and/or (IMO) early-war period- and/or: steel-based, 'tropical-issue' belt-buckle that comes with its period-attached greenish-coloured, 'webbing-based' tab, as was produced by the: the: 'R.S.& S.'- (ie. 'Richard Sieper u. Söhne'-) company, in overall nice (albeit clearly used ie. worn-) condition. The buckle was most certainly issued and/or heavingly worn but still retains some of its (as always quite darker-coloured-) sprayed colour: just normal scratching and/or paint-loss (ie. rust-staining) is noticable and/or present. The piece is still dirty (and shows some stained areas as mentioned above) but was most certainly never cleaned and comes as found. The buckle shows a typical: 'R.S.& S.'-logo ie. stamp (visible on the back near the catch - see pictures) denoting that it deals with a tropical-issue belt-buckle that was produced by the: 'Richard Sieper u. Söhne'-company. Simply a nice and desirable 'Heeres'-tropical-style buckle that is IMO priced according to its clearly used ie. moderately worn condition!
Attractive - albeit clearly used- and/or worn - example of a steel-based- (and/or originally silver-coloured-) Waffen-SS belt-buckle, being a neatly: 'RzM 155/43 SS'- (= 'Assmann u. Söhne'-) marked example This is an attractive example of a steel-based- (and/or originally silver-coloured-) Waffen-SS belt-buckle, being a neatly: 'RzM 155/43 SS'- (= 'Assmann u. Söhne'-) marked example, in overall nice, albeit clearly used- and/or worn, condition. The buckle has regrettably lost most of its original silver-coloured finish (only minimal remains are visible ie. present esp. on its back - see pictures). The overall surface shows clear evidence of having being worn and shows some dirt and/or staining (it has IMO however not been polished nor cleaned). The buckle - which is naturally a 100% garuanteed original example - has a very detailed appearance and still has an overall nice age-patina. As stated is the buckle a neatly maker-marked example that bears the makers-designation: 'RzM 155/43 SS' (as is visible under the roller-attachment as usual - see pictures). As certainly known are these genuine SS-buckles as produced by the: 'Assmann u. Söhne'-company getting really hard to find: simply a nice and/or very detailed example that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - albeit minimally mis-matched - 'cyphered' (and IMO later-war-period!) WH (Kriegsmarine) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap-pair, as was intended for a: 'Soldat eines Küsten-Art.-Regiments' This is an attractive - albeit minimally mis-matched - 'cyphered' (and/or IMO later-war-period-) WH (Kriegsmarine) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap-pair (as was intended for usage on the field-grey coloured navy tunics), as was intended for a: 'Soldat eines Küsten-Artillerie-Regiments' (or soldier who served within a coastal-artillery unit), in overall very nice, albeit IMO minimally used ie. worn-, condition. The straps - which are 'text-book' in all facets and measure approximately 11,5 cms. in length each (and have a width of 5,8 cms. as usually encountered) have the field-grey-coloured, woolen-based 'upperdecks' and come naturally mounted on their functional tongues. The straps show the neat interwoven 'winged-shell'-cyphers (as executed in golden yellow linnen), denoting the soldiers rank of: 'Soldat'. The straps - which originate from an old shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired - show some minimal age and/or wear (they have been moderately used). It should be noted that ALL NCO-type 'Küstenartillerie' insignia-pieces are hard to encounter: those 'cyphered' ones even more so, which grades them easily as 'scarce'. Simply an attractive 'cyphered' naval EM-type shoulderboard-pair as was intended for usage on the field-grey-coloured attire!
Attractive - albeit minimally mis-matched - 'cyphered' (and IMO mid- ie. later-war-period!) WH (Kriegsmarine) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap-pair, as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat eines Küsten-Art.-Regiments' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably minimally mis-matched - 'cyphered' (and/or IMO mid-/ie.later-war-period-) WH (Kriegsmarine) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap-pair (as was intended for usage on the field-grey coloured navy tunics), as was intended for a: 'Soldat eines Küsten-Artillerie-Regiments' (or soldier who served within a coastal-artillery unit), in overall nice (albeit IMO minimally used ie. worn-), condition. The straps - which are 'text-book' in all facets and measure approximately 11,5 cms. in length each (and have a width of 5,8 cms. as usually encountered) have the field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks' and come naturally mounted on their functional tongues. The straps show the neat interwoven 'winged-shell'-cyphers (as executed in golden-yellow-coloured linnen), denoting the soldiers rank of: 'Soldat'. The straps - which are as stated above only minimally mis-matched - were recently found together at a private household and were with certainty worn as a pair - see pictures. It should be noted that ALL EM- ie. NCO-type 'Küstenartillerie'-insignia-pieces are hard to encounter: those 'cyphered' ones even more so, which grades them easily as 'scarce'. Simply an attractive 'cyphered' naval EM-type shoulderboard-pair as was intended for usage on the field-grey-coloured attire that I IMO did price accordingly due to their minimally mis-matched condition!
Attractive - albeit minimally mis-matched - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for a: 'Soldat der Gebirgsjäger- o. Jäger-Truppen' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably minimally mis-matched - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps, as was piped in the neat green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or with certainty worn by! - a: 'Soldat der Gebirgsjäger- o. Jäger-Truppen' (or simple soldier who served within a mountain-troopers unit ie. regiment), in an overall nice (IMO only moderately used-) condition. The neat shoulderstraps - which are piped in the desirable green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured branchcolour - measure approximately 11 cms. in length each and have the neat (and desirable) 'silk-like'-type piping attached. The straps - which originates from an older shoulderstrap-collection - are fully 'text-book' in all facets and were IMO only moderately used and/or worn. The straps come naturally mounted on their functional tongues and show no defaults nor real damage but do show minimal age and/or staining as mentioned above. It should be noted that these standard-type, 'Gebirgsjäger' ie. 'Jäger'-piped EM-straps are not that easily encountered and can easily be graded 'scarce'. Simply an attractive - and truly minimally mismatched - EM-type shoulderstrap-pair, that was intended for a: 'Soldat der Gebirgsjäger- o. Jäger-Truppen': I deem that this pair is accordingly priced!
Attractive - albeit minimally mis-matched - pair of IMO early-war-period WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type (ie. great-coat type!) shoulderboards, as intended for a: 'Soldat der Infanterie-Truppen' - overall nice (albeit used ie. worn-), condition! This is a truly attractive - albeit minimally mis-matched - pair of IMO early-war-period (ie. 'M36'-type ie. 'rounded'-style-), WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type (IMO great-coat type!) shoulderboards, piped in the desirable white- (ie. 'Weisser'-) coloured branchcolour, as intended for - and worn by! - a: 'Soldat der Infanterie-Truppen' (or simply infantry soldier), in overall very nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-), condition. The - IMO most certainly early-war period type- shoulderboards (which are fairly long-sized and measure each approximately 13,5 cms. in length and are as such almost certainly intended for usage on the greatcoat or: 'Mantel') - show the neat white- (ie. 'Weisser'-) coloured and/or woolen type piping. They have the dark-green coloured 'upperdecks' and come of course mounted on their functional tongues as issued and/worn. The set is as stated minimally mis-matched (see pictures) but was IMO most certainly worn as a pair. It should be noted that these 'simple' 'Infanterie'-shoulderboards having the darker-green-coloured, woolen 'upperdecks' and/or white coloured piping are not that easy to encounter and are quite sought-after. The set was IMO only moderately used: some minimal age, wear and/or slight usage-marks are present and/or visible. The neat pair could of course excellently be used to complete any early-war 'Heeres'-greatcoat (or tunic) or would be a great addition to any shoulderboard-collection. I deem that this neat and scarcely encountered pair is priced according to their minimally mis-matched condition!
Attractive - albeit minimally mis-matched - pair of WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-) war-period-, 'M36'-pattern- (rounded-style-) NCO-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for a: 'Stabsfeldwebel o. Spiess eines Gebirgsjäger-Regiments' This is an attractive - albeit minimally mis-matched but nevertheless scarcely encountered - pair of IMO early- (ie. pre-) war-period-, 'M36'-pattern- (rounded-style-) NCO-type shoulderstraps, as piped in the neat darker-green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - a: 'Stabsfeldwebel o. Spiess eines Gebirgsjäger-Regiments' (or senior NCO ie. company-sergeant within a mountain-troops regiment), in overall nice, albeit moderately used ie. worn-, condition. The straps - which are both approximately 12,3 cms. sized in length - show the 'standard-type'- and/or darker-green coloured- and/or smooth-woolen-based 'upperdecks' as to be expected and have the desirable darker-green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured- and/or woolen-type piping attached (see pictures). The pair shows the (standard-type-) greyish-coloured- (ie. sub-dued-), NCO-braid attached and have three (matching-, regular-sized- and/or aluminium-based-) pips each attached, denoting that they were intended for an NCO with the unusually encountered rank of: 'Stabsfeldwebel' ie. 'Spiess'. Both straps - which come mounted on their original tongues - show some moderate age, wear and/or staining but are truly void of any damage or alike (see pictures). Simply a very attractive - and IMO quite early- ie. pre-war-period-, 'Heeres' NCO-type 'Gebirgsjäger'-related shoulderstrap-pair that belonged to a: 'Stabsfeldwebel o. Spiess eines Gebirgsjäger-Regiments'. It should be noted that all 'Gebirgsjäger'-related shoulderstraps are not that easily encountered and can easily be graded 'fairly rare': it has been some time that I had an equally nicely preserved pair in this particular rank on offer!
Attractive - albeit mismatched - pair of IMO mid-war-period-, so-called: 'M43'-pattern-, WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for an: 'Oberfeldwebel eines Heeres-Nachrichten-Abteilungs' The attractive - albeit mismatched - NCO-type shoulderstrap-pair is piped in the desirable bright-yellow- (ie. 'zitronengelber'-) coloured branchcolour and measures approximately 11 cms. in length. The straps have the bright-yellow- (ie. 'zitronengelber'-) coloured- and/or: 'silk-like'-type piping attached (as is more often encountered with these mid-war-period shoulderstrap-pairs) and were intended for usage by a senior-sergeant (ie. sergeant first-class) who served within an army signals-unit (ie. 'Heeres-Nachrichten-Abteilung'). The shoulderstraps - which originate from a private household and that were recently uncovered - are typical 'standard-issued'-examples that have the field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks'. They show the 'standard-pattern'-, silverish-coloured NCO-braid attached and were IMO only moderately used ie. worn: they do show wear, age and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). They have four (regular-sized- and/or aluminium- ie. zinc-based-) pips period-attached, denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Oberfeldwebel'. The straps come naturally mounted on their functional tongues (as can be seen on the pictures). The shoulderstraps come in a wonderful- and/or totally undamaged condition and will be hard to be upgraded: they are just a tiny bit mismatched in length only but were with certainty worn as such as a pair - see pictures. These desirable 'M43'-pattern-, army-signals-related-, NCO-type shoulderstraps as piped in the 'zitronengelber'-coloured branchcolour can easily be graded 'fairly scarce'. Simply a very attractive pair that belonged to an: 'Oberfeldwebel eines Heeres-Nachrichten-Abteilungs'!
Attractive - albeit non-maker-marked - example of a pre-war-period- and/or: smaller-sized-, DJ (ie. 'Deutsches Jungvolk') chromed-steel- (ie. 'Messing'-) based belt-buckle This is a truly attractive - albeit, as more often, non-maker-marked - example of a pre-war-period- and/or: smaller-sized-, so-called: DJ (ie. 'Deutsches Jungvolk') chromed-steel- (ie. 'Messing'-) based belt-buckle, that comes in an overall very nice, albeit moderately worn and/or totally uncleaned, condition. The buckle - showing a copper-coloured 'rune-sign' on its front as to be expected - is still a bit dirty and shows some dust and/or staining as acquired over the years. The buckle was (luckily) never cleaned nor polished and comes as recently found. The piece - which is void of any makers-designation as more often - shows nice and/or pronounced detail but also shows the obvious signs of having been moderately worn (it is still a bit dusty as found and comes as stored for decades). Simply an attractive example of a 'half-sized'- DJ (ie. 'Deutsches Jungvolk') chromed-steel-based belt-buckle that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - albeit non-maker-marked - example of an: 'Infanterie Sturm-Abzeichen in Silber', as executed in silver-coloured-, zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink') as was produced by the desirable maker: 'E. Ferd. Wiedmann' This example is as stated a non-maker-marked award: it has a 'typical' soldered catch and/or 'wrap-around' hinge set-up as is more often encountered on badges by this particular maker. The award can certainly be attributed to the (desirable!) maker: 'E. Ferd. Wiedmann' based in the town of Frankfurt a.M. The badge seems IMO to be totally uncleaned and has a still a very nice and somewhat shiny, darker-coloured- and/or truly silver-toned age-patina. The (thin-shaped-) pin and/or catch (ie. set-up-) are of course fully functional and/or present (see pictures). The piece - which originates from a private household where it was recently found - shows as stated moderate wear and/or staining but was with certainty never cleaned nor polished. Simply a nice specimen of an: 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber' as was produced by the desirable maker: 'E. Ferd. Wiedmann'!
Attractive - albeit non-maker-marked! - WH (Luftwaffe) 'Frontflugspange für Jäger in Bronze', being a so-called: 'Feinzink'-based variant This is a truly attractive - albeit non-maker-marked! - WH (Luftwaffe) 'Frontflugspange für Jäger in Bronze' (ie. 'FFS' or bronze flight-clasp for fighter-pilots), being a so-called: zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based variant, in overall very nice, albeit moderately used ie. worn-, condition. The clasp truly retains most of its original bronze-toned finish and is only moderately tarnished: it was IMO never cleaned nor polished and has a very attractive age-patina. The piece naturally shows all the details (such as the typical- pin- and/or catch pin-attachment-, regular- and/or non-altered catch, the nicely preserved and/or non-altered rivet with which the silver-coloured 'wings and/or arrow'-plate is attached, and/or flute-shaped and/or copper-based pin-) as to be expected. The badge is also fairly converse in shape (as can be seen on the pictures). The - truly very detailed and pronounced! - piece was IMO moderately used ie. worn (as can be seen on the pictures). The badge originates from a private German household and was never before in a collection: it was stored as such for decades. The piece was found together with the by: 'Wilh. Deumer'-produced WH (Luftwaffe) 'Fliegerschützen-Abzeichen mit Blitzbündel' which I offer under #37595: both awards belonged to the same Luftwaffe soldier- ie. pilot. Simply a nice and honest 'Frontflugspange für Jäger in Bronze' that shows fair usage and character: I deem that I have priced this attractive example accordingly!
Attractive - albeit non-marked - example of a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse mit Schwerter', being a neat 'Buntmetall'-based example - overall very nice (albeit IMO issued but never worn-) condition! This is a truly attractive - albeit non-marked - example of a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse mit Schwerter' (or: war-merits'-cross second class with swords), being a neat, golden-bronze-toned- and/or 'Buntmetall'-based example that comes together with its full-length (ie. 29 cms. long-sized-) and/or unconfectioned ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt'), in overall very nice (and IMO with certainty issued but never worn ie. used-) condition. The medal comes with its non-confectioned- and/or pre-folded- ribbon as issued- and/or stored for decades. The neatly (darker-) golden-toned-, bronze finish and detail are still very nice and bright: the piece truly retains almost all of its original finish. Simply a very nice albeit non-maker-marked 'KvK II. Kl. m. Schw.' which is IMO accordingly priced!

The cross comes with its original, approx. 13 cms. long, confectioned (and/or folded- ie. minimally wrinkled and/or stained-) ribbon as issued. Simply a very nice and non-maker-marked 'KvK m. Schw.' which is IMO accordingly priced!

The medal comes with its (full-length- and/or non-confectioned-) ribbon as issued and/or stored for decades. The neatly golden-toned-, bronze finish and detail are still very nice and bright: the piece truly retains almost all of its original finish. The cross comes with its original, approx. 23 cms. long, confectioned (and/or folded- ie. minimally wrinkled and/or stained-) ribbon as issued. Simply a very nice and non-maker-marked 'KvK m. Schw.' which is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - albeit non-marker-marked - example of an Iron Cross 2nd Class (ie: 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse') that comes mounted on its (scarcely seen!) so-called: 'Austrian-styled'- and/or typically folded ribbon This is an attractive - albeit non-marker-marked - example of an Iron Cross 2nd Class (ie: 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse') that comes mounted on its (scarcely seen!) so-called: 'Austrian-styled'- and/or typically folded ribbon, in overall nice (albeit IMO clearly issued- ie. worn-) condition. The neat - and truly attractive! - cross was most certainly never cleaned and has a nice and/or minimally tarnished age-patina: it truly shows truly no paint-loss and retains a very nice, black-finished- (ie. fairly 'matted'- ie: 'satin'-like-) black-coloured 'inner-core' and has also a fair bit of its polished-sides (ie. 'hochpolierte Kanten') still in place. The cross - which has fine and crisp (ie. truly 'frosted'!) detail - has a nice and minimally used appearance overall: it just shows some minimal dirt and/or dust acquired over the years. The cross came - as stated above - mounted on its typically folded- (ie. full-length-) and/or 'Austrian-styled' ribbon as issued and/or recently found. Simply an attractive and/or 'variant'-pattern award!

Attractive - albeit regrettably damaged- ie. incomplete! - 'Buntmetall'-based version of a WH (Luftwaffe) 'Fallschirmschützen-Abzeichen', being a maker- (ie. 'BSW'-) marked example as was produced by the: 'Brüder Schneider'-company The attractive - and with certainty high-quality produced! - badge has clearly been issued and/or worn: it is regrettably damaged- and/or incomplete and misses its entire pin- and/or catch (the pin set-up, however, is still present and in place - see pictures): it was recently found as such at a private household in Germany. This example has a truly nicely golden-coloured, 'loose eagle'-device attached and shows fully intact rivets: it shows very nice and pronounced detail overall as to be expected for such a high-quality produced: 'Fallschirmschützen-Abzeichen'. The badge (ie. the wreath) has a superb age-patina and retains most of its original (somewhat 'bluish'-coloured-) finish: the same is valid for the golden-toned eagle: both parts are just a bit dirty but have most certainly never been cleaned nor polished recently. As stated above is the piece nicely maker-marked on its back with the makers'-logo 'BSW in a clover': being the makers'-mark of the desirable maker: 'Brüder Schneider'-company based in the Austrian town of Wien (Vienna). Of additional interest is moreover the fact that this particular example has been neatly 'personalised' by the awardee: it bears the (period-) engraved initials 'D.z.N.' on its back (see pictures). As stated above, does this piece originate from a private household in Germany and was never before in a collection: it was simply kept as a war-souvenir for decades. It should be noted that these 'Buntmetall'-based FS-Abzeichen as produced by the 'BSW'-company can easily be graded 'rare' and a nicely preserved- and/or complete example would certainly cost much more than my asking-price. I deem that this IMO still very attractive award is accordingly priced: too bad that it comes in a damaged- ie. relic condition!
Attractive - albeit regrettably empty - specific, 'WH-Sanitäter-Seitentasche' (or medical-equipment-pouch) as executed in natural-coloured leather being a neatly maker- (ie. 'GRZ' and/or 'WaA 162'-) marked and/or 1944-dated example This is a truly very attractive - albeit regrettably empty - specific, so-called: 'WH-Sanitäter-Seitentasche' (or medical-equipment-pouch) as was executed in natural-coloured leather being a neatly maker- (ie. 'GRZ' and/or 'WaA 162'-) marked and/or 1944-dated example, in overall very nice- (ie. virtually mint-) condition. The piece - which is void of an impressed 'N.S.D.A.P.'- ie. 'SA'-logo stamping on its top as more often but does show the impressed characters 'S' and/or 'R' on its front (see pictures) - has all four of its (leather-based-) closing-straps in place (which are all undamaged- and/or functional) and does show a glued-in explanatory-paper (in the top) that describes the contents. The pouch - which originates from a German household where it was recently uncovered - was possibly issued but IMO almost not used: it comes in a wonderful and/or fully untouched condition as can be seen on the pictures: it is just a bit dusty and shows some minimal staining. Simply a very attractive WH medical equipment-item that is very hard to be upgraded!
Attractive - albeit regrettably incomplete! - WH (Kriegsmarine), 'Feinzink'-based, so-called: 'U-Bootkriegsabzeichen' (or: U-boat war-badge), being a neatly marker (ie. 'F.O. '-) marked example as was produced by the: 'Friedrich Orth' company The typical zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based badge is as stated a neatly-maker-marked and/or fairly detailed, later-war-period example showing the typical 'F.O.'-makers'-logo on the back (see pictures). It is as such a typical example that was produced by the Austrian-based company: 'Friedrich Orth' based in the town of Wien (ie. Vienna). The piece has a nice age-patina but has regrettably lost a fair bit of its period-applied golden-toned finish (something that is more often the case with these later-war produced- and/or zinc-based pieces). The piece however still shows extraordinary detail and comes naturally mounted on its functional pin (ie. -set-up) but has regrettably lost its catch (see pictures). The badge has IMO never been cleaned nor polished and is still a bit dirty ie. stained. Simply a nice 'U-Bootkriegsabzeichen' that is IMO priced according to its incomplete condition: a complete award would most certainly cost the double or more!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single - 'M36'-styled- ie. rounded-pattern, WH (Heeres) 'cyphered' NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel eines Pionier-Lehr Regiments o. Abteilung' This is attractive - albeit regrettably single - 'M36'-styled- (ie. rounded-pattern) WH (Heeres) 'cyphered' NCO-type shoulderstrap, as piped in the neat black- (ie. 'schwarzer')- coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by - a: 'Feldwebel eines Pionier-Lehr Regiments o. Abteilung' (or sergeant ie. NCO who served within an engineers-training-regiment ie. unit), in overall nice, albeit moderately used ie. worn-, condition. The strap - measures approximately 10,5 cms. in length - shows the darker-green coloured and/or 'smooth'-woolen-based, 'upperdeck' and has the neat - and desirable! - black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured and/or 'silk-like'-type piping, attached. The strap comes mounted on its functional tongue and comes as stored for decades. The strap has the neat 'standard-pattern'- (and/or silver-grey-coloured NCO-braid and one (aluminium-based) pip attached denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Feldwebel' (or sergeant). It also shows a (zinc-based- and/or Gothic-styled-) 'L'-cypher attached, denoting that the NCO who wore this strap was an instructor or trainer. The strap is a tiny bit dirty ie. stained and shows the clear evidence of having been moderately used and/or worn. It should be noted that the black-coloured (ie. 'Pioniere'-) branchcolour is most certainly not the easiest to encounter. Simply a very attractive - and desirable! - fairly early-war-pattern, NCO-type shoulderstrap that belonged to a: 'Feldwebel eines Pionier-Lehr Regiments o. Abteilung': too bad that it is only a single specimen!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single - 'M36'-styled- ie. rounded-pattern, WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for an: 'Unteroffizier eines Pionier-Regiments o. Abteilung' This is attractive - albeit regrettably single - 'M36'-styled- (ie. rounded-pattern) WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as piped in the neat black- (ie. 'schwarzer')- coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by - an: 'Unteroffizier eines Pionier-Regiments o. Abteilung'(or junior-sergeant ie. NCO who served within an engineers’ regiment ie. unit), in overall nice, albeit moderately used ie. worn-, condition. The strap - which measures approximately 11,7 cms. in length - shows the darker-green coloured and/or 'smooth'-woolen-based, 'upperdeck' and has the neat - and desirable! - black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured and/or woolen-type piping, attached. The strap comes mounted on its functional tongue and comes as stored for decades. The strap has the neat 'standard-pattern'- (and/or silver-grey-coloured NCO-braid attached, denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Unteroffizier'. The strap is a tiny bit dirty ie. stained and shows the clear evidence of having been moderately used and/or worn. It should be noted that the black-coloured (ie. 'Pioniere'-) branchcolour is most certainly not the easiest to encounter. Simply a very attractive - and desirable! - fairly early-war-pattern, NCO-type shoulder- strap that belonged to an: 'Unteroffizier eines Pionier-Regiments o. Abteilung': too bad that it is only a single specimen!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: 'Soldat u. Unteroffiziers-Anwärter der Veterinär-Truppen o. Generalsstab' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless rarely encountered! - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the bright-purple-red- (ie. 'karmesinroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or with certainty worn by! - a: 'Soldat u. Unteroffiziers-Anwärter der Veterinär-Truppen o. Generalstab' (or simple soldier and junior-sergeant candidate who served within an army veterinarian- or staff-unit ie. regiment), in an overall nice (IMO only moderately used-) condition. The neat shoulderstrap - which is piped in the desirable bright-purple-red- (ie. 'karmesinroter'-) coloured branchcolour - measures approximately 11,5 cms. in length and has the neat 'silk-like'-type piping attached (see pictures). The strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and was IMO only moderately used and/or worn. It shows a single stripe (ie. 'Lasche') which is constructed from silverish-yellow-coloured- (and standard-pattern-) NCO-braid firmly attached denoting the soldiers-rank of: 'Unteroffiziers-Anwärter'. The strap comes naturally mounted on it functional tongue and shows no defaults nor real damage but does show minimal age and/or staining as mentioned above. This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. It should be noted that the bright-purple-red- (ie. 'karmesin- roter'-) coloured branchcolour ranks amongst the rarest branchcolours as used within the: 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'. In any case a very attractive and/or mid- (ie. later-) war-period- and/or: 'Heeres'-related enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap that was intended for a: 'Soldat u. Unteroffiziers-Anwärter der Veterinär-Truppen o. Generalstab'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single - later-war-period- and/or: 'simplified'- so-called: 'M44/M45'-pattern, WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: 'Soldat der (Sturm)Artillerie-Truppen' The neat shoulderstrap - which shows the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured and/or: 'rayon'-type piping - measures approximately 11 cms. in length as more often encountered and comes in an overall nicely preserved- and/or moderately used- ie. worn-, condition. The shoulderstrap has the field-grey-coloured 'upperdeck' (as executed in typical, later-war-period-type wool) and comes naturally mounted on its simplified tongue as to be expected (see pictures). The neat strap was IMO used and/or moderately worn: it shows some obvious wear, age and/or staining as to be expected (the strap is, however, fully undamaged and comes as found). These shoulderstraps were produced by using all sorts of 'left-over'-material and this strap is a true example of such cloth-shortage. It should be noted that these later-war-period- and/or 'simplified'- so-called: 'M44/M45'-pattern, WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps are very desirable and can easily be graded: 'scarce'. This particular example originated from a larger cloth- ie. shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired.

'hochroter'-) coloured- and/or: 'silk-like'-type piping - measures approximately 11,8 cms. in length as more often encountered and comes in an overall nicely preserved- and/or only moderately used- ie. worn-, condition. The shoulderstrap has the field-grey-coloured 'upperdeck' (as executed in typical, later-war-period-type wool) and comes naturally mounted on its simplified- and/or neat 'variant-pattern'-tongue (see pictures).

Attractive - albeit regrettably single - Waffen-SS, enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat' (ie. 'SS-Mann' ie. 'Unterfüher-Anwärter') who served within the: 'Waffen-SS Infanterie-Truppen' The neat strap - which comes naturally mounted on its original and/or typically shaped- (ie. 'small-sized'-) SS-type tongue as is more often encountered on genuine Waffen-SS shoulderstraps - has the desirable white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured- and/or: 'silk-like'-type piping attached, denoting that it was intended for a soldier (ie. 'SS-Mann' ie. 'Unterfüher-Anwärter') who served within the: 'Waffen-SS Infanterie-Truppen'. The back of the strap (which measures 11 cms. in length as is more often encountered) is executed in field-grey-coloured wool, as is more often observed with genuine Waffen-SS-type shoulder- straps. The piece shows some moderate age, wear and/or minimal staining but comes in a wonderfull (and IMO only minimally used- ie. worn-) condition. The piece shows, moreover, a horizontally mounted (and somewhat silverish-golden-toned-) stripe of NCO-braid firmly attached (by hand) denoting that the soldier who wore this strap was a: 'Unterfüher-Anwärter' (or: junior NCO-candidate) - see pictures. It should be noted that white-piped Waffen-SS EM-type shoulderstraps are very desirable and are not that often offered for sale. Simply a very attractive and/or fully textbook 'Waffen-SS' infantry-shoulderstrap: too bad that it is only a single piece!

Attractive - albeit regrettably single - WH (Heeres) collar (rank-)tab as was intended for usage by a soldier (ie. 'Zugführer') who served within the: 'Deutscher Volkssturm', in overall nice albeit clearly used- ie. tunic-removed condition This is an attractive, WH (Heeres) rank-tab as was intended for usage by a soldier who served within the: 'Deutscher Volkssturm' (being the 'last ditch troops' of 1944/1945), in overall nice albeit clearly used- ie. tunic-removed condition. The collar-tab is executed in (somewhat structured-) woolen-based material and was IMO clearly worn and/or used and does show some minimal age, wear and/or staining: it is however totally void of any damage and comes as issued ie. worn (see pictures). The tab shows a brownish-coloured- and/or 'buckram'-based backing and shows two (smaller-sized- and/or zinc-based-) pips attached, denoting the soldiers'-rank of: 'Zugführer'. Simply a neat and naturally genuine example that is actually very hard to find if needed!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single - WH (Heeres) officers'-type- and/or neatly 'cyphered'- shoulderboard, as was intended for - and/or clearly used by! - a: 'Leutnant eines Kavallerie-Lehr-Abteilungs' The attractive and/or: 'Kavallerie'- (ie. reconnaisance- or cavalry-) related- shoulderboard is - as to be expected - piped in the neat golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour and comes in an overall nice (albeit clearly issued and/or worn ie. IMO carefully tunic-removed-) condition). The shoulderboard - which is fully 'textbook' in all facets and measures approximately 11 cms. in length - never had a tongue attached and was worn as a board of the so-called: 'sew-in'-type (as can be seen on the pictures). The board has a fairly dull- (ie. truly sub-dued-) silverish-grey-coloured 'upperdeck' and was IMO a board that was worn on a regular (ie. typical 'front-used'-) tunic. The board shows the neat, regular-sized and/or neatly bronze-golden-toned- (Gothic-styled-) so-called: 'L'-cypher attached. The 'cypher' shows some tarnish but was IMO never cleaned nor polished: it shows a truly uncleaned and still nicely preserved, bronze-golden-toned 'age-patina'. The board is also a bit 'tarnished' and stained simply caused by normal age and/or decades of storage and/or wear - see pictures). It should be noted that these shoulderboards could be worn on the 'standard'-pattern field-grey-coloured Heeres-tunics but could also worn on the specific-, black-coloured 'Panzer'-related 'wrap-around'-tunics. Simply an attractive-, officers'-type shoulderboard that is executed in a desirable branchcolour ie. 'Waffenfarbe': too bad that it is only a single specimen!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single - WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-war-) period, 'M36'-type (rounded-style-) 'cyphered'-, NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for an: 'Uffz. u. Mitglied des IX. Unteroffiziersvorschule der Inf.-Truppen' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single albeit nevertheless rarely encountered! - WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-war-) period, 'M36'-type (rounded-style-) 'cyphered'- NCO-type shoulderstrap as was piped in the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - an: 'Unteroffizier u. Mitglied des IX. Unteroffiziersvorschule der Infanterie-Truppen' (or: junior-sergeant who served within the infantry-related-, preparatory NCO-school- ie. institute, numbered: '9'), in overall nice, albeit moderately used ie. worn-, condition. The shoulderstrap - which is approximately 11,5 cms. sized in length - has the 'standard-type'- and/or darker-green-coloured, smooth-woolen-based 'upperdeck' and has the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured- and/or desirable 'silk-like'-type piping attached. The strap shows the neat (machine-embroidered by means of so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei'-) 'UV'-cypher- and/or Roman-styled: 'IX'-numeral (which are both executed in the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured wool- ie. fine-structured linnen as to be expected - see pictures). The strap - which comes mounted on its functional tongue - shows as stated above some moderate usage and/or wear (some minor staining and/or dust is visible and/or present). The strap has the 'standard-issue'-pattern-, bright-silver-coloured type NCO-braid attached, denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Unteroffizier'. It should be noted that all 'cyphered'-pattern shoulderstraps can be easily regarded 'fairly scarce': those attributed to the: 'Heeres-Unteroffiziersvorschulen' even more so. This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. In any case an attractive and/or early-war-period, neatly 'cyphered' and/or 'Heeres'-related shoulderstrap that was intended for a: 'Unteroffizier u. Mitglied des IX. Unteroffiziersvorschule der Infanterie-Truppen'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single - WH (Heeres), IMO early-war- ie. pre-war-period (ie. 'M36'-model and/or: rounded-style-) EM-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: 'Soldat der Pionier-Truppen' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single - WH (Heeres), IMO early-war- (ie. pre-war-period ie. 'M36'-model- and/or: rounded-style-) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap as was piped in the neat black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der Pionier-Truppen' (or simple engineer-soldier), in overall very nice (ie. IMO hardly used- ie. worn-) condition. The neat schoulderstrap - which has the 'standard'-pattern-, darker-green coloured- and/or: truly smooth-woolen-based 'upperdeck' - has the black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured- (and/or: desirable 'silk-like'-type-) piping attached (see pictures). The strap measures approximately 11 cms. in length. The strap - which is IMO of the regular-issued - (ie. non-private-production-) type - comes mounted on its functional tongue and comes of course in a very nice, ie. fully 'text-book' condition overall. The strap shows - as stated above - only minimal wear and/or age: it does show some minimal age, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). This example originated from a larger cloth- and/or shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. In any case an attractive 'Heeres'-related EM-type shoulderstrap that was intended for - and/or used by! - a: 'Soldat der Pionier-Truppen'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single and scarcely encountered! - IMO early- ie. pre-war-period-, WH (Heeres), 'M36'-pattern- (rounded-style-) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel der Infanterie u. Mitglied eines Divisionsstabes' This is a attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely encountered! - IMO early- ie. pre-war-period-, WH (Heeres), 'M36'-pattern- (rounded-style-) NCO-type shoulderstrap as was piped in the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or used by! - a: 'Feldwebel der Infanterie u. Mitglied eines Divisionsstabes' (or: infantry-sergeant who served within the divional staff), in overall nice, albeit moderately used- and/or worn-, condition. The neat strap - which is IMO of the pre- ie. early-war-type - shows only minimal age ie. wear and has a darker-green-coloured- and/or smooth woolen-based 'upperdeck' and has the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured and/or woolen-type piping attached as is more often encountered (see pictures). The piece comes mounted on its original tongue and measures approximately 11,2 cms. in length: it shows the silverish-coloured- (ie. standard-pattern-) 'Heeres' NCO-braid and/or single- ('Buntmetall'-based-) pip attached denoting the NCOs-rank of: 'Feldwebel' - see pictures. Next to this the strap shows the - scarcely seen and/or equally 'Buntmetall'-based- and/or Gothic-styled-, so-called: 'D'-cypher attached. The strap shows as stated above moderate usage and/or wear (some staining and/or dust is visible-/present). This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. Simply a very attractive - and scarcely encountered! - 'Heeres-Infanterie'-related shoulderstrap that belonged to a: 'Feldwebel der Infanterie u. Mitglied eines Divisionsstabes': too bad that it is only a single example!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless rarely encountered! - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: 'Soldat der Feldgendarmerie-Truppen' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless rarely encountered! - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the bright-orange- (ie. 'oranger'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or with certainty worn by! - a: 'Soldat der Feldgendarmerie-Truppen' (or simple soldier who served within an army field-police- unit ie. regiment), in an overall nice (IMO only moderately used-) condition. The neat shoulderstrap - which is piped in the desirable bright-orange- (ie. 'oranger'-) coloured branchcolour - measures approximately 11,2 cms. in length and has the woolen-type piping attached (see pictures). The strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and was IMO only moderately used and/or worn. The strap comes naturally mounted on it functional tongue and shows no defaults nor real damage but does show minimal age and/or staining as mentioned above. This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. It should be noted that the bright-orange- (ie. 'oranger'-) coloured branchcolour ranks amongst the rarest branchcolours as used within the: 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'. In any case a very attractive and/or mid- (ie. later-) war-period- and/or: 'Heeres'-related enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap that was intended for a: 'Soldat der Feldgendarmerie-Truppen'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless rarely enountered! - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for an: 'Uffz. u. Feldwebel-Anwärter der Nebel-Truppen' This is a very attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless rarely enountered! - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the neat darker-purple- (ie. 'bordeauxroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or with certainty worn by! - an: 'Unteroffizier u. Feldwebel-Anwärter der Nebel-Truppen' (or junior-sergeant and/or sergeant-candidate who served within an army smoketroops unit ie. regiment), in an overall nice (IMO only moderately used-) condition. The neat shoulderstrap - which is piped in neat darker-purple- (ie. 'bordeauxroter'-) coloured branchcolour - measures approximately 10,5 cms. in length and has the neat (and desirable) 'silk-like'-type piping attached. The strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and was IMO only moderately used and/or worn. The strap comes naturally mounted on it functional tongue and shows no defaults nor real damage but does show minimal age and/or staining as mentioned above. The strap has the neat somewhat bluish-grey-coloured (ie. sub-dued-) type NCO-braid attached, denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Unteroffizier' and also shows a (loosely affixed) piece of silverish-yellow-coloured- (and/or somewhat wider-shaped- albeit standard-pattern-) NCO-braid (ie. 'Lasche') firmly attached denoting the NCOs-rank of: 'Feldwebel-Anwärter'. This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. In any case a very attractive and/or mid- (ie. later-) war-period- and/or: 'Heeres'-related NCO-type shoulderstrap as executed in one of the more scarcely seen branchcolours of the: 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' that was intended for an: 'Unteroffizier u. Feldwebel-Anwärter der Nebel-Truppen'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely encountered! - 'cyphered'-, WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboard, as was intended for - and clearly worn by! - a: 'Major eines Eisenbahn-Pioniere Abteilungs' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely encountered! - neatly 'cyphered', WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboard, as was piped in the neat black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - a: 'Major eines Eisenbahn-Pioniere Abteilungs' (or: major who served within a specific army engineers-regiment that manned the armoured trains), in overall nice, albeit clearly used ie. worn and/or: clearly tunic-removed-, condition. The neat shoulderboard is constructed in the smooth-type (ie. 'moleskin'-like-) wool and is per regulation piped in black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured wool. The board - which has a length of approximately 11 cms. - comes without tongue as found and/or worn and was thus a board that was worn as a so-called: 'sew-in'-type example. The board has a neat 'silver-greyish'-coloured (ie. somewhat 'sub-dued'-) 'upperdeck' and shows some minimal age ie. staining caused by years of storage and/or minimal wear and/or usage: it is IMO most certainly worn and/or carefully tunic-removed. The board shows a neat (golden-toned-, larger-sized- and/or: Gothic-styled-) 'E'-cypher period attached which device shows some minimal tarnish ie. wear (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply an attractive and neatly 'cyphered' shoulderboard that belonged to a: 'Major eines Eisenbahn-Pioniere Abteilungs': too bad that it is only a single example!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely encountered! - 'Ostvölker'-collar-tab, as was intended for a Turkistanian volunteer within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie.

'kornblumenblauer'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for a Turkistanian volunteer within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. 'Zugführer' (or: NCO) who served within the 'Turkistanischer Legion', in overall very nice (ie. virtually mint- and/or never tunic-attached-) condition. The tab is nicely (and entirely!) executed in so-called: 'BeVo-weave technique' and is not confectioned nor folded: it comes as just 'cut of the role'. The piece shows the attractive, interwoven 'NCO'-braid, denoting that that it was intended for usage by a non-commisioned officer-rank (ie. 'Zugführer'). It should be noted that these - original - 'official' 'Ostvölker'-collar-tabs as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. being of German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo') are considered 'fairly rare'. Simply a great occasion to acquire an attractive German produced 'BeVo'-cloth collar-insignia as was intended for a Turkistanian volunteer ie. 'Zugführer' or NCO who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht': too bad that it concerns a single example!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely encountered! - 'Ostvölker'-collar-tab, as was intended for an Armenian volunteer within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. 'Zugführer' (or: NCO) who served within the 'Armenian Legion' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely encountered! - 'BeVo'-woven 'Ostvölker'-collar-tab having the golden-yellow- (ie.

Attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely encountered! - later-war-period- and/or: 'simplified'- so-called: 'M44/M45'-pattern, WH (Heeres) NCOs'-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel der (Gebirgs)Jäger-Truppen' The neat shoulderstrap - which shows the darker-green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured and/or: 'silk-like'-type piping - measures approximately 11 cms. in length as more often encountered and comes in an overall nicely preserved- and/or only moderately used- ie. worn-, condition. The shoulderstrap has the field-grey-coloured 'upperdeck' (as executed in typical, later-war-period-type wool) and comes naturally mounted on its simplified tongue as to be expected (see pictures). The neat strap was IMO used and/or moderately worn: it shows some obvious wear, age and/or staining as to be expected (the strap is, however, fully undamaged and comes as recently found). The strap shows the bluish-grey-coloured- (ie. 'sub-dued'-) NCO-braid and/or one single- (smaller-sized- and/or zinc-based-) pip attached, denoting the NCOs-rank of: 'Feldwebel' (or sergeant who served within the army mountain-troops). These shoulderstraps were produced by using all sorts of 'left-over'-material and this strap is a true example of such cloth-shortage. It should be noted that these later-war-period- and/or 'simplified'- so-called: 'M44/M45'-pattern, WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstraps are very desirable and can easily be graded: 'scarce'. This particular example originated from a larger cloth- ie. shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. Simply a neat, later-war-period- and/or: 'simplified'- so-called: 'M44/M45'-pattern, WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the the darker-green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel der (Gebirgs)Jäger-Truppen'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely encountered! - WH (Luftwaffe) collar-tab (ie. 'Kragenspiegel'), as was intended for usage by a: 'Flieger-Ingenieur' (being a rank similar to: 'Leutnant') This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely encountered! - WH (Luftwaffe) collar-tab (ie. 'Kragenspiegel') as was executed on a bright-pink-coloured background, as was intended for usage by a: 'Flieger-Ingenieur' (being a rank similar to: 'Leutnant'), in overall very nice (and IMO never used- nor tunic-attached-), condition. The tab is executed in the neat smooth-like (ie. 'moleskin'-type) wool and has truly extraordinary detail: the shown craftmanship is simply stunning. The backing is constructed of yellowish-beige-coloured so-called 'buckram'-based cloth (as can be seen on the pictures). These 'pink-coloured' LW-tabs as were intended for staffmembers of the 'Ingenieurkorps der Luftwaffe' are quite hard to encounter and can easily be graded 'scarce'. Simply a very attractive collar-tab that belonged to a: 'Flieger-Ingenieur': too bad that it is only a single specimen!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless very rarely encountered! - WH (Heeres), 'M43'-pattern and/or: neatly 'cyphered'-, enlisted-mens'-type shoulder- strap, as was intended for a: 'Soldat eines Artillerie-Beobachtungs-Lehr-Abteilungs' This is a truly very attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless with certainty very rarely encountered! - WH (Heeres), early- (ie. mid-war-) period, 'M43'-pattern and/or: neatly 'cyphered'-, enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or with certainty worn by! - a: 'Soldat eines Artillerie-Beobachtungs-Lehr-Abteilungs' (or simple soldier who served within an artillery-related, observers training-unit), in overall nice, albeit moderately used ie. clearly issued- and/or worn-, condition. The shoulderstrap - which is approximately 11,3 cms. sized in length - has the 'standard-type' and/or field-grey-coloured-, woolen-based 'upperdeck' and has as stated above the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured- and/or woolen-type piping attached. The strap shows the neat Gothic-styled, 'BL'-cyphers (which are neatly machine-embroidered in red-coloured wool- ie. linnen by means of so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei' as to be expected). The strap - which comes mounted on its functional tongue - shows as stated above some moderate usage and/or wear (some minor staining and/or dust is visible and/or present). It should be noted that all 'cyphered'-pattern shoulderstraps can be easily regarded 'rare'. This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. This is actually the first such: 'Beobachtungs-Lehr-Abteilungs'-shoulderstrap that I have ever encountered and I am convinced that not that many examples have survived, something that IMO merits its asking-price. In any case an attractive and/or early- (ie. mid-) war-period- and/or neatly 'cyphered', 'Heeres'-related NCO-type shoulderstrap that was intended for a: 'Soldat eines Artillerie-Beobachtungs-Lehr-Abteilungs'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single but rarely seen! - WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-war-) period, 'M35'-type (pointed-styled-) 'cyphered'-, EM-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: 'Soldat u. Uffz.-Anwärter des Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 7' This is a very attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-war-) period, 'M35'-type (pointed-style-) 'cyphered'- and/or per regulation non-piped, enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for - and/or clearly worn by! - a: 'Soldat u. Unteroffiziers-Anwärter des Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 7' (or: soldier and/or: junior-sergeant-candidate who served within the army anti-tank- ie. tank-destroyers' unit, numbered: '7'), in overall nice, albeit moderately used ie. worn-, condition. The shoulderstrap - which is approximately 13 cms. sized in length - has the 'standard-type'- and/or: field-grey-coloured, smooth-woolen-based 'upperdeck' and has (of course) no piping (and is as such a typical, early strap of the 'M35'-pattern). The strap shows the neat (machine-embroidered by means of so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei'-) '7'-cypher (which is executed in the bright-pink- ie. 'rosa-roter'-coloured wool as to be expected). Moreover, does it show a firmly affixed stripe of NCO-braid attached, denoting the soldiers' rank of: 'Unteroffiziers- Anwärter'. The strap - which comes mounted on its functional tongue - shows as stated above some moderate usage and/or wear (some minor staining and/or dust is visible and/or present). It should be noted that all 'cyphered'-pattern shoulderstraps can be easily regarded 'fairly scarce'. This particular example originated from a private household and was never before part of a collection: it was found together with the other single-pieced PZ-Jäger strap I offer under number: 39213. In any case a very attractive and/or with certainty rarely encountered and/or neatly 'cyphered'- ie. or 'Heeres-Panzerjäger'-related EM-type shoulderstrap that was intended for a: 'Soldat u. Unteroffiziers-Anwärter des Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 7'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single but truly rarely encountered! - IMO mid-war period-, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for an: 'Uffz. der Kradschützenbtle. der Panzer-Div. u. Inf.-Divisione (mot.)' This is a very attractive - albeit regrettably single but truly rarely encountered! - IMO mid-war period-, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the neat copper-brown- (ie. 'kupferbrauner'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or clearly worn by! - an: 'Unteroffizier der Kradschützenbatalione der Panzer-Divisionen und Infanterie-Divisionen (mot.)' (or junior-sergeant who served within one of the army-related-, motorised motorcycle-reconnaissance battalions), in an overall nice (IMO only moderately used- ie. worn-) condition. The neat shoulderstrap - which is piped in the desirable copper-brown- (ie. 'kupferbrauner'-) coloured branchcolour - measures approximately 11,4 cms. in length and has the neat (and desirable) 'silk-like'-type piping attached. The strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and was IMO only moderately used and/or worn. The strap comes naturally mounted on it functional tongue and shows no defaults nor real damage but does show minimal age and/or staining as mentioned above. The strap has the 'standard-issue'-pattern-, bright-silver-coloured-, NCO-braid attached, denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Unteroffizier'. This particular example originated from a large cloth- and/or shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. It should be noted that the copper-brown- (ie. 'kupferbrauner'-) coloured branchcolour is one of the most difficult to encounter branchcolours within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'. In any case a very attractive - and rarely encoutered! - 'Heeres'-related NCO-type shoulderstrap that was intended for an: 'Unteroffizier der Kradschützenbatalione der Panzer-Divisionen und Infanterie-Divisionen (mot.)'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single but very rarely seen! - WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-war-) period, 'M36'-type (pointed-styled-) 'cyphered' NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for an: 'Unteroffizier eines Panzerjäger-Lehr-Abteilungs' This is a very attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-war-) period, 'M36'-type (pointed-style-) 'cyphered'- and/or per regulation non-piped, NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for - and/or clearly worn by! - an: 'Unteroffizier eines Panzerjäger- o. Abwehr-Lehr-Abteilungs' (or junior-sergeant who served within an army anti-tank- ie. tank-destroyers-, training- ie. schooling-unit), in overall nice, albeit moderately used ie. worn-, condition. The shoulderstrap - which is approximately 11,3 cms. sized in length - has the 'standard-type'- and/or darker-green-coloured, smooth-woolen-based 'upperdeck' and has (of course) no piping. The strap - which has the silverish-coloured- and/or standard-pattern NCO-braid attached denoting the NCOs'-rank of: 'Unteroffizier' - shows the neat (machine-embroidered by means of so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei'-) 'PL'-cyphers (which are executed in the bright-pink- ie. 'rosa-roter'-coloured wool as to be expected). The strap - which comes mounted on its functional tongue - shows as stated above some moderate usage and/or wear (some minor staining and/or dust is visible and/or present). It should be noted that all 'cyphered'-pattern shoulderstraps can be easily regarded 'fairly scarce'. This particular example originated from a private household and was never before part of a collection. In any case a very attractive and/or with certainty very rarely encountered and/or neatly 'cyphered'- ie. or 'Heeres-Panzerjäger'-related NCO-type shoulderstrap that was intended for an: 'Unteroffizier eines Panzer-Abwehr-Lehr-Abteilungs'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - 'cyphered' WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboard, as was intended for a: 'Leutnant des Infanterie-Regiments 451' - overall nice (albeit IMO moderately used ie. tunic-removed-) condition! This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - 'cyphered', WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboard, as was piped in the neat white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - a: 'Leutnant des Infanterie-Regiments 451' (or lieutnant who served within the infantry regiment, numbered: '451' ), in overall nice, albeit clearly used ie. worn and/or IMO tunic-removed, condition. The neat shoulderboard is constructed in the smooth-type (ie. 'moleskin'-like) wool and is per regulation piped in the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour. The board - which has a length of approximately 11 cms. - comes without tongue as found and/or worn and was thus a board that was worn as a so-called: 'sew-in'-type example. The board has a truly 'silver-greyish'-coloured (ie. somewhat 'sub-dued'-) 'upperdeck' (something that clearly identifies it as WH Heeres-type shoulder- board). The board shows some minimal age ie. staining caused by years of storage and/or minimal wear and/or usage: it is IMO most certainly worn and/or carefully tunic-removed (it comes with a pebbled-styled, button period-attached (sewn on by hand). The board - which originate from a private household and was never before in a collection - shows the(regular-sized-) golden-toned, '4, '5' and '1'-numerals attached: all 3 devices show some minimal tarnish ie. wear. Simply an attractive infantry-related shoulderboard that belonged to a: 'Leutnant des Infanterie-Regiments 451': too bad that it is only a single example!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - 'cyphered' WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboard, as was intended for an: 'Oberleutnant des Panzerjäger-Regiments 3' - overall nice (albeit IMO moderately used ie. tunic-removed-) condition! This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - 'cyphered', WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboard, as was piped in the neat bright-pink- (ie.

The neat shoulderboard - which is actually hard to encounter and can IMO easily be graded scarce! - is constructed in the smooth-type (ie. 'moleskin'-like) wool and is per regulation piped in the (very!) bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour. The board - which has a length of approximately 11 cms. - comes without tongue as found and/or worn and was thus a board that was worn as a so-called: 'sew-in'-type example. The board has a truly 'silver-greyish'-coloured (ie. somewhat 'sub-dued'-) 'upperdeck' (something that clearly identifies it as WH Heeres-type shoulder- board). The board shows some minimal age ie. staining caused by years of storage and/or minimal wear and/or usage: it is IMO most certainly worn and/or carefully tunic-removed. The board - which originate from a private household and was never before in a collection - shows a (regular-sized-) golden-toned, Gothic-styled 'P'-cypher, '3'-numeral and a (regular-sized-) pip attached: all devices show some minimal tarnish ie. wear. Of additional interest is the fact that the '3'-numeral is unusually attached ABOVE the 'P'-cypher (something that was against regulations but that was more often done). Simply an attractive - and desirable! - shoulderboard that belonged to an: 'Oberleutnant des Panzerjäger-Regiments 3': too bad that it is only a single example!

The neat shoulderboard is constructed in the smooth-type (ie. 'moleskin'-like-) wool and is per regulation piped in bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour. The board - which has a length of approximately 10,5 cms. - comes without tongue as found and/or worn and was thus a board that was worn as a so-called: 'sew-in'-type example. The board has a neat 'silver-greyish'-coloured (ie. somewhat 'sub-dued'-) 'upperdeck' (something that clearly identifies it as a WH Heeres-type shoulderboard). The board shows some minimal age ie. staining caused by years of storage and/or minimal wear and/or usage: it is IMO most certainly worn and/or carefully tunic-removed (ie. cut-off). The board - which originates from a private household and was never before in a collection - shows neatly golden-toned- '3' and/or '2'-numerals attached: both devices show some minimal tarnish ie. wear. Simply an attractive shoulderboard that belonged to a: 'Major des Artillerie-Regiments 32': too bad that it is only a single example!

The piece comes mounted on its original tongue and measures approximately 11,2 cms. in length: it shows the silverish-coloured- and/or standard-type, 'Heeres' NCO-braid attached. The strap shows a (larger-sized-, Gothic-styled- and/or silver-toned- albeit tarnished-) 'A-cypher' and equally tarnished rank-pip attached: both (zinc-based-) devices have lost most of their silverish-toned finish (and do show some regular tarnish ie. age-patina). The strap shows as stated above only moderate usage and/or wear (some minor staining and/or dust is visible-/present).

The neat strap - which is IMO of the pre- ie. early-war-type and only shows minimal age ie. wear - has a darker-green-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdeck' and has the woolen-type piping as more often encountered. The piece never had a tongue and was worn as a strap of the 'sew-in-type' (see pictures). The strap - which measures approximately 12 cms. in length - shows the silverish-coloured and/or standard-type, 'Heeres' NCO-braid attached. The strap shows also the '2', '8' and '2' numerals attached (which are all three executed in silverish-coloured metal (ie. 'Buntmetall'). Next to these it shows a single (also 'Buntmetall'-based-) pip attached, denoting the NCOs-rank of: 'Feldwebel' (or sergeant): all devices shows some minimal age- ie. fair tarnish. The strap shows as stated above only moderate usage and/or wear (some minor staining and/or dust is visible-/present). It should be noted that all 'cyphered'-type shoulderstraps can be easily regarded 'fairly scarce'.

The piece comes mounted on its original tongue and measures approximately 11,5 cms. in length: it shows the silverish-coloured and/or standard-type, 'Heeres' NCO-braid attached. The strap has two (aluminium-based-) pips attached, denoting the NCOs-rank of: 'Oberfeldwebel' (or sergeant first-class): bothdevices shows some minimal age- ie. tarnish.

The neat strap - which is IMO of the pre- ie. early-war-type and measures approximately 11,8 cms. in length - shows only minimal age ie. wear and has a darker-green-coloured- and/or smooth woolen-based 'upperdeck' as to be expected. It has the darker-green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured- and/or: woolen-type piping attached as is more often encountered on these 'M36'-pattern- (rounded-style-) straps (see pictures). Of additional interest is furthermore the fact that this strap is fairly wide-sized and has a width of 5.2 cms. (one and other that was with certainty done to eventually accommodate larger-sized numerals). The strap - which is IMO of the 'standard-issue'-pattern and does NOT originate from a tailor-shop - shows as stated above only moderate usage and/or wear (some staining and/or dust is visible-/present). This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired.

The strap has the neat somewhat bluish-grey-coloured (ie. sub-dued-) type NCO-braid and/or single- (regular-sized-, silver-coloured- and/or: zinc-based-) pip attached, denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Feldwebel'. Next to this the strap shows a (silverish-grey-coloured- and/or equally zinc-based-) so-called: 'FHH'-cypher period-attached: both devices are only minimally tarnished and/or stained but are still very nice and/or pronounced. This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired.

The strap has the neat 'standard'-type, silverish-coloured NCO-braid attached and shows 3 (fully identical and/or zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based-) pips attached, denoting the soldiers'- (ie.

'cyphers') period-attached. The neat strap is just a tiny bit dirty ie. stained and shows the clear evidence of having been moderately used and/or worn: the 12(!) metal devices show equal wear ie. tarnish and/are nicely preserved. Simply a very attractive WH (Heeres) NCO- (ie. 'M43'-) type shoulderstrap with an unually encountered rank that belonged to a: 'Stabsfeldwebel o.

The neat strap - which is IMO of the pre- ie. early-war-type but that was as such (IMO) used in the mid-war-period - shows moderate age ie. wear - has a darker-green-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdeck' and has the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured and/or woolen-type piping attached as is more often encountered. The piece comes mounted on its original tongue and measures approximately 11,8 cms. in length: it shows the silverish-grey-coloured-, standard-pattern-type, 'Heeres' NCO-braid attached and shows three (vertically mounted-) stripes attached (which are executed in so-called: 'Soutache'-braid - see pictures. The strap shows as stated above moderate usage and/or wear (some staining and/or dust is visible-/present). I have two (similar) pairs in my private collection and am aware that the exact signifaction of these three stripes is to date not fully known (some years ago I posted a thread regarding these sets on the: Wehrmacht-Awards Forum: this thread can be found there and provides some detailed pictures and/or additional information: http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/forums/showthread.php?t=613969. In any case an attractive and/or with certainty rarely encountered 'Heeres-Artillerie'-related shoulderstrap: too bad that it is only a single example!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, neatly 'cyphered', WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel des Artillerie-Regiments 179' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, neatly 'cyphered', WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the bright-red- (ie.

The neat shoulderstrap - which is piped in the the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour - measures approximately 11,5 cms. in length and has the neat (and desirable) 'silk-like'-type piping attached. The strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and was IMO only moderately used and/or worn. The strap comes naturally mounted on it functional tongue and shows no defaults nor real damage but does show minimal age and/or staining as mentioned above. The strap has the neat somewhat bluish-grey-coloured (ie. sub-dued-) type NCO-braid and/or single- (silver-coloured- and/or aluminium-based-) pip attached, denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Feldwebel'. Next to this the strap shows a set of (smaller-sized- and/or zinc-based-) '1'-, '7'- and/or: '9'-numerals period-attached. This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. In any case an attractive and/or mid- (ie. later-) war-period- and/or: 'Heeres'-related NCO-type shoulderstrap that was intended for a: 'Feldwebel des Artillerie-Regiments 179'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, neatly 'cyphered', WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel eines Panzerjäger-Abteilungs' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, neatly 'cyphered', WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the bright-pink- (ie.

The neat shoulderstrap - which is piped in the the bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour - measures approximately 10,5 cms. in length and has the neat (and desirable) 'silk-like'-type piping attached. The strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and was IMO only moderately used and/or worn. The strap comes naturally mounted on it functional tongue and shows no defaults nor real damage but does show minimal age and/or staining as mentioned above. The strap has the neat somewhat bluish-grey-coloured (ie. somewhat sub-dued-) type NCO-braid and/or single- (silver-coloured- and/or: 'Buntmetall'-based-) pip attached, denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Feldwebel'. Next to this the strap shows a neat (regular-sized-, Gothhic-styled and/or zinc-based-) so-called: 'P'-cypher period-attached. Of additional interest is IMO the fact that this NCO was once (field?) promoted: the added strip of horizontally-mounted (and/or differently styled!) piece of NCO-braid firmly corroborates this. This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. In any case an attractive and/or mid- (ie. later-) war-period- and/or: 'Heeres'-related, NCO-type shoulderstrap that was intended for a: 'Feldwebel eines Panzerjäger-Abteilungs'!

The strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and was IMO moderately used and/or worn. The strap comes naturally mounted on it functional tongue and shows no defaults nor real damage but does show minimal age, wear and/or staining as mentioned above.

'Übershube') attached, bearing the signification: '70' (as executed in equally white-coloured so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei' done in wool as can be seen on the pictures). Moreover, does this example show a single stripe (ie. 'Lasche') which is constructed from silverish-coloured- (and/or early-type- and/or standard-pattern-) NCO-braid attached denoting the soldiers-rank of: 'Unteroffiziers-Anwärter'. This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired.

'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or with certainty worn by! - a: 'Feldwebel eines Kavallerie-Aufklärungs-Abteilungs' (or: sergeant who served within an army-cavalry-related-, reconaissance regiment ie. unit), in an overall very nice (and IMO only moderately used-) condition. The neat shoulderstrap - which is piped in the desirable golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour - measures approximately 12,1 cms. in length and has the neat (and desirable!) 'silk-like'-type piping attached (see pictures). The strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and was IMO moderately used and/or worn. The strap comes naturally mounted on it functional tongue and shows no defaults nor real damage but does show minimal age, wear and/or staining as mentioned above. The neat strap shows the bluish-grey-coloured- and/or standard-pattern, so-called: 'sub-dued'-type NCO-braid and a single- (regular-sized- and/or zinc-based-) pip attached denoting, the NCOs rank of: 'Feldwebel' (ie. sergeant). Next to this does the strap show a (larger-sized-, silver-coloured-) Gothic-styled- so-called: 'A'-cypher attached. This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. In any case an attractive and/or mid- (ie. later-) war-period- and/or: 'Heeres'-related NCO-type- and/or neatly 'cyphered' shoulderstrap that was intended for - and/or used by! - a: 'Feldwebel eines Kavallerie-Aufklärungs-Abteilungs'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern-, WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel u. Mitglied der Artillerie-Schießschule Thorn' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern-, WH (Heeres), NCO-type shoulderboard, as was piped in the neat bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) branchcolour, as was intended for - and worn by! - a: 'Feldwebel u. Mitglied der Artillerie-Schießschule Thorn' (or artillery-sergeant and member - IMO a trainer - who served within the artillery-shooting school based in the town of Thorn), in overall very nice, albeit moderately used ie. worn-, condition. The strap - which has the 'standard-type'- and/or: field-grey-coloured-, woolen-based 'upperdeck' - has the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured- and/or: 'silk-like'-type piping attached and measures approximately 11,5 cms. in length. The board shows the silverish-coloured- (ie. 'standard-type'-) NCO-braid attached and shows one ('Buntmetall'-based-) pip attached denoting the soldiers'-rank of: 'Feldwebel' (ie. sergeant). Moreover, has the strap a neat (and rarely seen!) Gothic-styled- and/or also 'Buntmetall'-based (and regular-sized-) so-called: 'S'-cypher attached, denoting the NCOs function at the: 'Artillerie-Schießschule'. Of interest is furthermore the fact that the board was constructed by using a standard-type 'Unteroffiziers'-type board: the piece of horizontally-mounted NCO-braid (being of the more early-period-type) is loosely added as a: 'Lasche' (see photos). The board comes mounted on its original tongue and is in a very nice, ie. fully 'text-book' condition overall. It shows as stated above only minimal usage (some minimal age, dust and/or staining is present and/or visible) and I deem that the board has been crudely tunic-removed (causing a tear in the button-hole of the tongue). This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. In any case an attractive and/or mid- (ie. later-) war-period- and/or: 'Heeres'-related enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap that was intended for a: 'Feldwebel u. Mitglied der Artillerie-Schießschule Thorn'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO mid-war period-, so-called: 'M43'-pattern- and neatly 'cyphered'-, WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel der Infanterie-Lehr-Truppen' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO mid-war period- and/or neatly 'cyphered', so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the neat white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or with certainty worn by! - a: 'Feldwebel der Infanterie-Lehr-Truppen' (or: sergeant who served within an army-infantry-related-, schooling- ie, 'Lehr'-regiment ie. unit), in an overall very nice (and IMO only moderately used-) condition. The neat shoulderstrap - which is piped in the desirable white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour - measures approximately 11,5 cms. in length and has the neat (and desirable) 'silk-like'-type piping attached (see pictures). The strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and was IMO moderately used and/or worn. The strap comes naturally mounted on it functional tongue and shows no defaults nor real damage but does show minimal age, wear and/or staining as mentioned above. The neat strap shows the bluish-grey-coloured- (ie. 'sub-dued'-) and/or standard-pattern NCO-braid and a single (aluminium-based- and/or: regular-sized-) pip attached denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Feldwebel' (ie. sergeant). Next to this does the strap show a Gothic styled- and/or aluminium-based: 'L'-cypher attached, denoting the NCOs rank ie. specific function. This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. In any case an attractive and/or: mid-war-period- and/or: 'Heeres'-related NCO-type shoulderstrap that was intended for - and/or used by! - an: 'Feldwebel der Infanterie-Lehr-Truppen'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO mid-war period-, so-called: 'M43'-pattern-, WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap as was intended for an: 'Oberfeldwebel der Panzergrenadier-Truppen' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO mid-war period-, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the neat bright-green- (ie. 'hellgrüner'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or with certainty worn by! - 'Oberfeldwebel der Panzergrenadier-Truppen' (or: sergeant first-class who served within an army-infantry-related-, 'Panzergrenadiere'-regiment ie. unit), in an overall very nice (and IMO only moderately used-) condition. The neat shoulderstrap - which is piped in the desirable bright-green- (ie. 'hellgrüner'-) coloured branchcolour - measures approximately 11,7 cms. in length and has the neat (and desirable) 'silk-like'-type piping attached (see pictures). The strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and was IMO moderately used and/or worn. The strap comes naturally mounted on it functional tongue and shows no defaults nor real damage but does show minimal age, wear and/or staining as mentioned above. The neat strap shows the bluish-grey-coloured- (ie. 'sub-dued'-) and/or standard-pattern, NCO-braid and two (identical-, aluminium-based- and/or: regular-sized-) pips attached denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Oberfeldwebel' (ie. sergeant first-class). This particular example originated from a larger cloth- and/or: shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. In any case an attractive and/or: mid-war-period- and/or: 'Heeres'-related-, NCO-type shoulderstrap that was intended for - and/or used by! - an: 'Oberfeldwebel der Panzergrenadier-Truppen'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO mid-war-period-, WH (Heeres) NCO-type-, so-called: 'summer-type'-shoulderstrap (being of the model as specifically intended for the 'Windjacke'), as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel des Pionier-Batallions 54' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO mid-war-period-, WH (Heeres) NCO-type-, so-called: 'summer-type'-shoulderstrap (being of the rarely seen model as was specifically intended for usage on the 'Windjacke'), as was piped in the neat black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel des Pionier-Batallions 54' (or: sergeant who served within an army enigineers- unit ie. batallion numbered: '54'), in an overall nice (IMO only moderately used-) condition. The neat shoulderstrap - which is piped in the black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured branchcolour - measures approximately 13,5 cms. in length and has the woolen-type piping attached. The strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and was IMO only moderately used and/or worn. The strap comes naturally mounted on it functional tongue and shows no defaults nor real damage but does show minimal age and/or staining as mentioned above. The strap has the neat silverish-coloured- (ie. somewhat 'shiny'-) type NCO-braid and/or single- (regular-sized- and/or alumnium-based-) pip and/or: '5'- and/or: '4'-numerals (which are of the larger-sized-pattern- and which are also aluminium-based-) period-attached, denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Feldwebel'. The strap was most certainly intended for usage on the specific 'Gebirgsjäger'-type, protective '3/4-model' jacket ie. rain-coat (or: 'Gebirgsjäger-Windjacke'). This particular example originated from a larger cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. In any case a very attractive and/or mid- (ie. later-) war-period- and/or: 'Heeres'-related NCO-type shoulderstrap that was intended for a: 'Feldwebel des Pionier-Batallions 54'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - neatly 'cyphered'-, WH (Heeres) officers'-type-, shoulderboard as was intended for (and with certainty worn by!) an: 'Oberleutnant des Panzer-Regiments 27' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) officers'-type-, neatly 'cyphered' shoulderboard as was piped in the desirable bright-pink- (ie. rosaroter-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for (and with certainty worn by!) an: 'Oberleutnant des Panzer-Regiments 27' (or: lieutnant first-class who served within the tank-regiment, numbered: '27'), in overall nice (albeit clearly used and/or clearly tunic-removed-), condition. The shoulderboard - which is piped in the neat bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour - is executed in the 'smooth-type' wool as to be expected. The board - which is approximately 10,5 cms. sized in length - has the greyish-coloured- (ie. truly sub-dued) 'upperdeck' and comes mounted on its functional (small-sized-) tongue (see pictures). The board shows a set of matching-, regular-sized- and/or vaguely golden-toned- ie. tarnished '2'- and/or: '7'-cyphers (ie. numerals) and/or: single (golden-toned-) pip period-attached. The cyphers and pip still retain their original prongs in place (see pictures). The board was clearly used and/or worn as such and does show some obvious age, wear and/or staining as to be expected. As most certainly known could these shoulderboards be used on the 'regular' field-grey-coloured tunics but they could also be used for usage on the specific, black-woolen-based 'Panzer'-type 'wrap-around'-tunics. The board was recently found at a private household. Simply an attractive, 'cyphered' officers'-type shoulderboard that belonged to a Panzer-officer who served within the: 'Panzer-Regiment 27'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - NSB (ie. 'Nationaal Socialistische Beweging') so-called: 'WA' (ie. 'Weerafdelingen') shoulderboard as was intended for usage by a high-ranked official with the rank of: 'WA-Banleider' This is a truly attractive example of a NSB (ie. 'Nationaal Socialistische Beweging') (being the Dutch WWII pro-German Party) so-called: 'WA' (ie. 'Weerafdelingen') shoulderboard, as was intended for usage by a high-ranked WA-official with the rank of: 'WA-Banleider', that comes in an overall very nice (albeit IMO moderately worn and/or used- ie. tunic-removed-) condition. This movement - ie. the WA - could be compared with the German SA-stormtroopers and was (re-)founded in 1941 after having been disbanded for various years. The shoulderboard is per regulation executed in bright-red-coloured wool and shows a golden-toned 'upperdeck' (as executed in twisted- and/or golden-toned braid). The piece has a length of 11,5 cms. and comes with its (period) golden-toned button attached (see pictures). Of addtional interest is moreover that the piece shows an inked NSB-inventory-number on its back (that reads: '153') something that is more often - but not always! - seen on genuine NSB-related insignia. As stated above comes this piece in an overall nice albeit clearly worn condition without showing any damages nor defaults whatsoever. It has clearly been worn and just shows some darkened tarnish as more often encountered. Simply an attractive and actually scarcely encountered NSB-related shoulderboard which is not that often offered for sale!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - Waffen-SS, enlisted-mens'-type shoulder- strap as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat' (ie. 'SS-Mann') who served within the: 'Waffen-SS Feldgendarmerie-Truppen' The neat strap - which comes naturally mounted on its original and/or typically shaped- (ie. 'small-sized'-) SS-type tongue as is more often encountered on genuine Waffen-SS shoulderstraps - has the desirable bright-orange- (ie. 'orangeroter'-) coloured- and/or: 'rayon'-type piping attached, denoting that it was intended for a soldier that served within the: 'Waffen-SS Feldgendarmerie-Truppen' (or: notorious field-police troops). The back of the strap (which measures 11 cms. in length as is more often encountered) is executed in field-grey-coloured wool, as is more often observed with genuine Waffen-SS-type shoulderstraps. The piece shows some minimal age, wear and/or minimal staining but comes in a wonderfull (and IMO only minimally used- ie. worn-) condition. It should be noted that these orange-piped Waffen-SS EM-type shoulderstraps are very desirable and are not that often offered for sale. Simply a very attractive and/or fully textbook 'Waffen-SS-Feldgendaremerie'-shoulderstrap: too bad that it is only a single piece!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - Waffen-SS, NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - an: 'Unterscharführer der SS-Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs-Truppen' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely encountered! - Waffen-SS, NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - an: 'Unterscharführer der SS-Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs-Truppen' (or junior-sergeant who served within a Waffen-SS cavalry- or reconnaisance unit), in overall nice- (albeit moderately used- ie. clearly tunic-removed-) condition. The strap - which comes mounted on its regular-sized tongue and measures approximately 12 cms. in length - has a standard-pattern- and/or black-coloured-, woolen-based 'upperdeck' and has the desirable, so-called: 'silk-like'-type, piping attached (see pictures). The shoulderstrap shows the bluish-grey- (ie. sub-dued-) coloured NCO-braid attached, denoting that is was used by a Waffen-SS soldier having the rank of: 'Unterscharführer'. The strap - which is clearly used and that shows some normal wear, age and/or staining as can be seen on the pictures - originates from a private household in Germany: it was found together with the similar (albeit non-identical!) Waffen-SS shoulderstrap which I offer under #37931. In any case an attractive Waffen-SS NCO-type shoulderstrap that is IMO accordingly priced!

Aufklärungs-Truppen' (or Waffen-SS cavalry- or reconnaisance captain), in overall nice- (albeit moderatly used- ie. tunic-removed-) condition. The strap - which comes mounted on its typical, smaller-sized tongue - has a fairly 'dull-silverish'-coloured 'upperdeck' and is executed in black-coloured wool and has the desirable, so-called: 'rayon-like'-type, piping (see pictures). The shoulderboard shows two (neatly golden-toned!) pips attached denoting that is was used by a soldier with the officers'-rank of: 'Hauptsturmführer'. The board - which is clearly used and that shows some normal wear, age and/or staining - originates from an old shoulderboard-collection that was compiled over a period of 40 years. Simply an attractive Waffen-SS officers'-type shoulderboard that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - Waffen-SS, officers'-type shoulderboard, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - an: 'Obersturmführer der SS-Nachshub-Truppen' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely encountered! - Waffen-SS, officers'-type shoulderboard, as piped in the light-blue- (ie. 'kornblumen- blauer'-) branchcolour, as was intended for - and worn by! - an: 'Obersturmführer der SS-Nachshub-Truppen' (or Waffen-SS transport lieutnant first-class), in overall nice- (albeit used- ie. tunic-removed-) condition.

Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) 'cyphered', officers'-type shoulderboard, as was intended for a: 'Leutnant eines Panzerschützen-Regiments' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) 'cyphered'-, officers'-type shoulderboard as was executed in the desirable, bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or worn by! - a: 'Leutnant eines Panzerschützen-Regiments' (or: lieutnant and/or gunner who served within a 'Panzerschützen'-regiment- ie. unit), in overall very nice- (albeit IMO moderately used ie. tunic-removed-) condition. The board - which is executed in the 'smooth'-like- and/or: bright-pink-coloured wool (aka 'moleskin') - measures approximately 10,5 cms. in length and has a fairly sub-dued ie. silver-grey-coloured 'upperdeck'. It comes without tongue and was clearly used as a board of the 'sew-in'-type. The board shows a golden-toned ('Gothic'-styled and/or smaller-sized-) so-called: 'S'-cypher period-attached: the device is only minimally tarnished and/or stained but is still very nice and/or pronounced. The board shows as stated above only minimal usage and/or wear (some staining and/or dust is visible- and/or present). These 'standard'-model, officers'-type shoulderboards could be used with the regular-style officers-tunics but could naturally also be worn on the specific black-woolen 'Panzer'-type 'wrap-around' tunics. This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. Simply an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - 'Panzerschützen'-officers'-type, 'cyphered' shoulderboard: too bad it is only a single piece!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) 'cyphered', officers'-type shoulderboard, as was intended for an: 'Oberleutnant des Kradfahr-Abteilungs 4' This is a truly very attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) 'cyphered', officers'-type shoulderboard, as executed in the desirable, golden-yellow- (ie.

The board - which is executed in the 'smooth'-like- and/or golden-yellow-coloured wool (aka 'moleskin') - measures approximately 11 cms. in length and has a fairly 'sub-dued'- ie. silver-greyish-coloured 'upperdeck'. It comes mounted on its (small-sized-) tongue and was IMO only moderately used. The board shows a (rarely seen!) golden-toned- (and/or 'Gothic'-styled and/or smaller-sized-) so-called: 'K'-cypher, '4'-numeral and/or single, golden-toned pip period-attached: all three devices are only minimally tarnished and/or stained but are still very nice and/or pronounced. The board came with a field-grey-coloured screw-on-button (ie. 'Schraubknopf') attached.This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. Simply a very attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - 'Kradfahr'-related officers'-type, 'cyphered' shoulderboard: too bad it is only a single piece!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) general-officers'-type shoulder- board, as was executed in golden-/silver toned so-called: 'Cellueon', as was intended for usage by a: 'Generalleutnant des Heeres' The truly attractive shoulderboard - which is constructed from the bright-red- (almost orange-) coloured, 'smooth-type' (ie. moleskin-like-) wool and having the golden-/silver toned- so-called: 'Cellueon'-based upperdeck - comes in an excellent condition overall and is hard to be upgraded: the board was with certainty worn and came as recently found. The board is just a tiny bit 'tarnished' simply caused by decades of storage and/or moderate wear and was with certainty once tunic-attached: some minimal stitching-holes are noticable. The neat shoulderboard - which measures approximately 11,5 cms. in length - comes with a larger-sized-, bright-silver-coloured-, general-officers'-pip period-attached denoting the rank of a: 'Generalleutnant des Heeres' (see pictures). The shoulderboard came without tongue and was clearly intended to be used as a piece of the 'sew-in'-type. It should be noted that all general-officers' shoulderboards can easily be graded 'very scarce'. Too bad that it is only a single example!

The neat shoulderboard - which shows an 'upperdeck' that is executed in bright-golden- and/or silver-coloured- (ie. later-war-type-) so-called: 'Cellueon' - measures approx. 11 cms. in length and shows a bright-red-coloured- and/or 'smooth'-woolen-based 'underground' as to be expected. The board never had a tongue attached and was thus a piece that was worn as a piece of the 'sew-in-type' (it was with certainty once worn and was clearly 'cut-off' a tunic - see pictures). The board shows a single (and per regulation silver-coloured-) pip attached and was thus intended for a general-officer with the rank of: 'Generalleutnant'. The board shows truly extraordinary detail and is a great example of the employed craftmenship of the days. It is a tiny bit tarnished ie. stained (simply caused by years of storage ie. moderate wear). The piece originates from a private household and was never before in a collection: it was found together with the (equally single-) general-officers'-type shoulderboard which I offer under number 36688: both insignia-pieces belonged to the same army general-officer who kept and/or stored these neat insignia-pieces for decades. Simply a very attractive and/or truly detailed WH (Heeres) general-officers'-type shoulderboard: too bad it is only a single example!

The strap shows the (shiny) silverish-coloured NCO-braid and a single (regular-sized-) pip attached and does show a horizontally mounted and/or firmly affixed- and: white-coloured regimental indicator 'slip-on' attached (see pictures). Moreover, does the strap show the white-coloured- (and/or typically smaller-sized-) '3' and/or: '7' numerals attached (see pictures). The neat strap shows - as stated above - only moderate usage ie. wear (just some minimal age, dust and/or staining is visible and/or present - see pictures). Simply an attractive WH (Heeres), IMO early-war period (ie. 'M36'-model- ie. rounded-pattern-) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel des Infanterie-Regiments 37': too bad that it is only a single piece!
Attractive - albeit single - WH (Heeres), IMO early-war period (ie. 'M36'-model- ie. rounded-pattern-) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for an: 'Uffz. u.

'M36'-model and/or rounded-style-) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and clearly worn by! - an: 'Unteroffizier u. Feldwebel-Anwärter des Jäger- o. Gebirgsjäger-Regiments 13' (or: junior-sergeant and/or: sergeant-candidate who served within a mountain-troop-related unit- ie. regiment, numbered: '13'), in overall very nice (albeit IMO moderately used ie. worn-) condition. The neat strap - which has entirely been executed in darker-green-coloured and/or smooth-woolen-based wool and that is IMO a privately-purchased example - has the neat green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured branchcolour- (and/or woolen-type-) piping attached (which is a tiny bit stained). The strap which measures approximately 10,7 cms. in length, comes mounted on its functional tongue and is as stated in a nice, ie. fully 'text-book' condition overall. The strap shows the (shiny) silverish-coloured NCO-braid and a single (regular-sized-) pip attached and does show a double- and horizontally-mounted and/or: firmly affixed- and/or: yellowish-silver-coloured 'Lasche' (ie. rank slip-on) attached (see pictures). Moreover, does the strap show (zinc-based- and smaller-sized-) '1' and/or: '3' numerals attached (see pictures). The strap shows - as stated above - only moderate usage ie. wear (just some minimal age, dust and/or staining is visible and/or present: it also shows some glue-remains on its back, caused by having been glued into an album once - see pictures). This particular example originated from a larger cloth- ie. shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. Simply an attractive WH (Heeres), IMO early-war period (ie. 'M36'-model- ie. rounded-pattern-) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: 'Unteroffizier u. Feldwebel-Anwärter des Jäger- o.

Mitglied des Unteroffiziersschule Bergzabern' (or sergeant and/or possible trainer who served within the infantry-related, NCO-school based in the town of: Bergzabern), in overall nice, albeit clearly used- and/or worn-, condition. The neat strap - which is IMO of the early-war-type - shows moderate age ie. wear and has a darker-green-coloured- and/or smooth woolen-based 'upperdeck' and has the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured and/or woolen-type piping attached as is more often encountered (see pictures). The piece comes without tongue and measures approximately 11,1 cms. in length: it was with certainty 'cut-off' a tunic. The strap shows the silverish-grey-coloured- (ie. standard-pattern-) 'Heeres' NCO-braid and/or single- (aluminium-based-) pip attached denoting the NCOs-rank of: 'Feldwebel' - see pictures. Next to this, the strap shows the - scarcely seen and/or equally aluminium-based- and/or Gothic-styled-, so-called: 'US'-cypher- and/or: 'Buntmetall'-based- and/or Gothic-styled-, so-called: 'B'-cypher, attached. Taking into account that this strap was entirely constructed of typical 'smooth-type' wool, I deem this a so-called 'privately-purchased'-example. The strap shows as stated above only minimal usage and/or wear (some staining and/or dust is visible-/present). This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. Simply an attractive - and scarcely encountered! - 'Heeres-Infanterie'-related shoulderstrap that belonged to a: 'Feldwebel u.

Attractive - albeit slightly mis-matched - pair of IMO early-war period WH (Heeres), 'M36'-type (rounded-style-) 'cyphered', NCO-type shoulderboards, as intended for a: 'Feldwebel der Panzerjäger-Truppen' - overall nice condition! This is a truly attractive - albeit slightly mis-matched - pair of IMO early-war period, WH (Heeres), 'M36'-type (rounded-style-) 'cyphered', NCO-type shoulderboards, piped in the neat bright-pink- (ie. 'Rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as intended for - and worn by! - a: 'Feldwebel der Panzerjäger-Truppen' (or sergeant within a tank-destroyers unit or regiment), in overall nice (and IMO only minimally used ie. worn-) condition. The boards - which are both approximately 12,3 cms. sized in length - were most certainly always together and were worn as a pair. Both boards have the 'standard-type' and/or darker-green coloured- and/or smooth woolen-based 'upper-decks' and show the neat bright-pink- (ie. 'Rosaroter'-) coloured and/or woolen-type piping. The boards show identical (Gothic-styled- and/or fairly shiny and 'Buntmetall'-based-) so-called: 'P'-cyphers and have a single (aluminium-based-) pip each attached. They show the standard-type- and silver-coloured NCO-braid attached, denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Feldwebel'. The shoulderboards - which come on their functional tongues - show equal tarnish and/or minimal wear, staining and/or age. This pair originates from a private household where it was recently uncovered: it was never before in a collection. By all means a very attractive - and not that easily encountered! - shoulderboard-pair that was worn by a: 'Feldwebel der Panzerjäger-Truppen'!
Attractive - albeit slightly mis-matched - pair of WH (Heeres), 'Panzerjäger'-related and /or 'cyphered', NCO-type shoulderboards, as intended for a: 'Feldwebel der Panzerjäger-Truppen' - very nice (albeit clearly worn ie. fairly used-) condition! This is a truly very attractive - albeit slightly mis-matched - pair of WH (Heeres), 'Panzerjäger'- (ie. tank-destroyer-) related and /or neatly 'cyphered', NCO-type shoulderboards, piped in the neat bright-pink- (ie. 'Rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as intended for - and worn by! - a: 'Feldwebel der Panzerjäger-Truppen' (or sergeant within a tank-destroyers unit or regiment), in overall nice (albeit clearly worn ie. fairly used-) condition. The boards - which are both approximately 12,2 cms. sized in length - were most certainly always together and were worn as a pair. Both boards have the 'standard-type' and/or field-grey coloured woolen-based 'upper-decks' but have a different - albeit bright-pink- (ie. 'Rosaroter'-) coloured - piping: one of the boards has the 'silk-like'-type piping whereas the other board shows the woolen-type piping. The boards show identical (Gothic-styled- and/or zinc-based-) so-called: 'P'-cyphers and a single (also zinc-based-) pip attached. They show the standard-type- and somewhat yellowish-coloured NCO-braid attached, denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Feldwebel'. Moreover has the set two (interesting!) horizontally mounted linnen-based 'lashes' attached: both show heavy wear and were originally white-coloured (see pictures): I deem that the soldier was 'front-promoted' and did not have the proper NCO-braid at hand. The shoulderboards - which come on their functional tongues - show equal tarnish and/or quite extensive wear, staining and/or age: they show however no real damage. This pair originates from a private household where it was recently uncovered: it was never before in a collection. By all means a very attractive - and not that easily encountered! – shoulderboard-pair that was worn by a: 'Feldwebel der Panzerjäger-Truppen'!
Attractive - albeit unmarked - example of a: 'Winterschlacht im Osten' (or: Eastern Front medal), that comes mounted on its original, full-length and/or confectioned 'Austrian-styled' ribbon This is nice - albeit unmarked - example a: 'Winterschlacht im Osten' (or: Eastern Front medal) that comes on its original full-length and/or typically pre-confectioned 'Austrian-styled'-ribbon, in overall nice, albeit moderately used ie. issued and/or worn condition. The medal is - as stated above - a neat and/or non-maker-marked specimen as was executed in typical 'zinc-' (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal. The medal retains a very nice (ie. somewhat darker-coloured-) age-patina and has IMO never been cleaned nor polished and therefore are details and/or finish still very nice and/or crisp. All of its (a fairly matted-) bluish-grey-coloured finish has been nicely preserved, giving the medal a very nice and/or detailed appearance. The piece has an almost 'minty appearance' although it has clearly been issued and/or worn - see pictures. The piece comes mounted on its typically confectioned 'Austrian-styled' ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') that is minimally stained (and which is confectioned by means of the wider-type ribbon!). Simply a nice and desirable 'variant' example of a non maker-marked: 'Winterschlacht im Osten'-medal!
Attractive - albeit unmarked - example of an: Iron Cross 2nd class (or 'Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse') that comes mounted on its original, full-length and/or confectioned 'Austrian-styled' ribbon This is nice - albeit unmarked - example of an: Iron Cross 2nd class (or 'Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse') that comes on its original full-length and/or typically pre-confectioned 'Austrian-styled'-ribbon, in overall nice, albeit moderately used ie. issued and/or worn condition. The cross was most certainly never cleaned and has a nice (albeit somewhat 'blackened' age-patina and full- ie. undamaged) black-finished- and/or fairly 'matted' inner-core. The cross - which has fine and crisp detail - has a superb appearance overall: it just shows some minimal dirt and/or dust acquired over the years. As stated has the cross great and very fine detail: it is just minimal 'tarnished' over the years and has never been cleaned. The piece comes mounted on its typically confectioned 'Austrian-styled' ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') that is minimally stained (and which is confectioned by means of the wider-type IC-ribbon!). Simply a nice and desirable 'variant' example of a non maker-marked EK II. Klasse!

The document is in a nice condition overall: it is not denazified nor 'hole-punched' and is properly ink-stamped and/or accordingly signed. The A-5-sized document is just once folded (as is more often encountered) and does show some minimal age and/or staining. The 'standard'-pattern award-document (or: 'Vorbedrückte Besitzzeugnis') was initially intended for an: 'Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen in Silber' (of which text the wording 'Silber' has been deleted and replaced by the typed grade: 'bronze' - see pictures). The A5-sized and nicely (by a machine) filled-in document is neatly - and clearly! - signed by Schwarz' commanding-officer (being a regrettably unidentified: 'Oberst' - see pictures). Schwarz obtained this piece 'at the front' (something that can be deducted from the typed: 'OU' ie. 'Ortsunterkunftstelle': being a place at the front ie. in the field'). The piece is nicely ink-stamped with a black-coloured ink-stamp that clearly reads: 'Panz.Gren.Div. Feldherrnhalle'. It should furthermore be noted that any 'Namensurkunden' (ie. documents mentioning a named unit such as the one on offer) are very desirable and/or collectable: those as issued to members and/or: 'Füssiliere' of the: 'Feldherrnhalle-Division' even more so!
Attractive - and actually fairly scarcely encountered! - hand-embroidered example of an officers'-pattern so-called: 'Polizei' (ie. police) arm-eagle, in overall very nice, albeit moderately used and/or clearly tunic-removed condition This is an attractive - and actually fairly scarcely encountered! - neatly hand-embroidered example of an officers'-pattern, so-called: 'Polizei' (ie. police) arm-eagle, as was worn on the various reed-green-coloured 'Polizei'-tunics, that comes in a very nice, albeit moderately used and/or clearly tunic-removed-, condition. The eagle - which truly shows great pronounced detail - is a neat example of the high-standard of the hand-embroidery used in the period: the craftmanship is simply stunning and/or very pronounced (see pictures). The piece - which is hand-embroidered with various kinds of silver-coloured braid on a typical police-green-coloured- and/or woolen-based background - still retains its black-coloured and/or paper-based 'backing' (see pictures). The eagle shows as stated some moderate wear and/or age and still shows the stitching-remains (ie. holes) with which it was once tunic-attached. Simply a very attractive and surely decorative 'Polizei'-related-item that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually fairly scarcely encountered! - WH (Heeres) so-called: 'Jäger' (ie. rifle-troops-) cap-emblem, depicting three oakleave-branches (ie. 'Eichenlaub') - overal nice (albeit clearly used ie. cap-removed-) condition! This is a genuine - and actually fairly scarcely encountered! - so-called: WH (Heeres) 'Jäger' (ie. rifle-troops-) cap-emblem, depicting three oakleave-branches (ie. 'Eichenlaub'), in overal nice (albeit clearly used ie. cap-removed-) condition. The badge - which was recently found at a private household - is as stated in a clearly used and/or cap-removed condition: two of its original (and very fragile!) pins are present and/or in place (one has been broken-off). These metal badges were worn on the side of the 'M43-model'-caps (ie. 'Einheitsmützen') and signified membership within a specific 'Jäger'-regiment or unit. The example on offer here is made out of darker-coloured- (ie. rust-stained-) metal and displays a used ie. uncleaned finish (IMO was it never cleaned nor polished). Simply a very nice - and of course 100% genuine! - example: great to add to any M43-model cap!
Attractive - and actually never before encountered ie. with certainty scarcely encountered! - DAF-related 'BeVo'-woven sport-shirt-patch as was intended for an official within the: KdF- (ie. 'Kraft durch Freude') organisation This is a very decorative - and actually never before encountered ie. with certainty scarcely encountered! - colourful DAF- (ie. 'Deutsches Arbeits Front'-) related 'BeVo'-woven sport-shirt-insignia, as was intended for an official within the: KdF- (ie. 'Kraft durch Freude'-) organisation, in overall very nice (albeit moderately used ie. possibly shirt-removed-) condition. The fairly large-sized badge ie. patch (sized 18,5 x 18 cms. -) was once glued into an album or scrapbook and does show some (minimal) paper- ie. glue-remains (as visible on the back - see pictures). The decorative piece - which is woven in bright-red- and/or black- coloured linnen on a white-coloured- (and also linnen-based-) background shows some minor staining (nothing shocking though). The 'Kraft durch Freude'-organisarion (German for Strength through Joy, abbreviated 'KdF') was a large state-operated leisure-organisation in Germany. It was a part of the German Labour Front 'Deutsches Arbeits Front'-), being the national German labour-organisation at that time. Simply a very attractive and with certainty unusually encountered piece of DAF-related sport-shirt-insignia!
Attractive - and actually never before encountered! - 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz' (DRK) armband-/ID-grouping, comprising of a white-coloured armband and accompanying document (ie. 'Kraftfahrzeugschein') - nice (ie. used-/worn-) condition! This is an attractive - and actually never before encountered! - 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz' (DRK) armband-/ID-grouping, comprising of respectively a white-coloured armband (as executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern) and and accompanying, linnen-based ID-document (ie. 'Kraftfahrzeugschein') as issued in 1936 for a vehicle with the license-plates: 'IK15618', both pieces in overall very nice (ie. moderately used-/worn-) condition. The armband - which measures in total 40 x 13 cms. - is a tiny bit stained but still retains bright and/or vivid colours and was 'hand-sewn'-sewn together (see pictures). It is also neatly - and clearly! - blue-ink stamped with a round stamp that reads: 'Polizeipresident in Breslau - Polizeirevier 16' (see pictures). The band shows a red-coloured 'life-rune'-sign. The armband came with a neat green-coloured (and or linnen-based-) ID-document (ie. 'Kraftfahrzeugschein') as was issued in Breslau on 4 April 1936 for a vehicle with the license-plates: 'IK15618'. The neat document bears various stamps and/or signatures and shows a glued-in paper that states that the car (van?) of the make 'Hanomag' can be used as an ambulance in 1943. (This document shows also the a.m. red-coloured 'life-rune'-sign). Both pieces originated from a private-household in Germany and were always together: they were most certainly worn and/or kept as such for decades. I have never seen a similar armband and am convinced that it deals with a rare (possibly unique!) item: I deem that I have priced this attractive 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz' (DRK) armband-/ID-grouping accordingly!
Attractive - and actually never before encountered! - 'NS-Frauenschaft'-related sports-shirt-badge, being a medium-sized- (and/or maker-marked!) example as executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern This particular 'NS-Frauenschaft'-related sports-shirt-badge was without doubt intended to signify membership within the German Womens' Association (or in German-language: 'NS Frauenschaft') and was never used- nor shirt-attached: it can easily be graded 'virtually mint-/unissued' and came 'as straightly cut-off the role'. The example on offer here is a medium-sized version that measures 10,5 x 10 cms. - see pictures. The badge is neatly woven in black-coloured linnen on a white-coloured (and also linnen-based-) background and is a clear example of the neat 'BeVo-weave'-technique (as stated does the badge also show an interwoven makers'-mark that reads: 'BeVo - Wuppertal' - see pictures). Simply an attractive - and actually never before encountered! - 'NS-Frauenschaft'-related sports-shirt badge: I am convinced that this is a scarcely encountered example!
Attractive - and actually never before encountered! - (IMO) DJ (ie. 'Deutsches Jungvolk') very early-period(!) arm-badge, depicting a white-coloured 'wolfshook'-insignia on a black-coloured background - overall very nice condition! This is a very attractive - and actually never before encountered! - (IMO) DJ (ie. 'Deutsches Jungvolk') very early-period(!) arm-badge (ie. 'Ärmelraute'), depicting a white-coloured 'wolfshook'-insignia (ie. Blitz) as machine-stitched on a black-coloured background, in overall very nice condition. I have personally never never seen this insignia before and could not find any reference for it: I deem however that it should deal with an early-period DJ (ie. 'Deutsches Jungvolk') arm-badge of some sort. The neat piece depicts a white rune-sign on a black-coloured background and is nicely executed in so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei'. The patch is also backed with a piece of beige-coloured linnen. Simply a very attractive - and as stated non-referenced ie. never before encountered - DJ arm-badge: I deem that this interesting piece needs further investigation!
Attractive - and actually never before encountered! - arm-shield, as was intended for usage by the members of the: 'Reichkolonialbund' (or RKB), being a neat clearly tunic-removed example as was executed in 'BeVo-weave'-pattern This is an attractive - and actually never before encountered and with certainty scarcely encountered! - arm-shield, as was intended for usage by the various members of the: 'Reichkolonialbund' (or RKB), being a neat clearly used- and/or tunic-removed example as was executed in 'BeVo-weave'-pattern, in overall nice and/or undamaged condition. The 'Reichskolonialbund' (or RKB) or in English language: Reichs Colonial League) was a collective body that absorbed all German colonial organisations during the third reich period. It was led by Franz Ritter von Epp and was active between the years 1936 and/or 1943. The shield-shaped arm-badge is approximately sized: 8 x 6 cms. and shows a black-coloured cross and a five stars on a bright-red-coloured background in the upper-left corner (all on a white-coloured background). The neat arm-shield was as stated above woven in a technique similar to the 'BeVo-weave'-pattern and was clearly used and/or tunic-removed: it still does some minimal stitching- and/or thread-remains and is a tiny bit stained (see pictures). I am fully convinced that this is a scarcely encountered TR-item that signified membership within one of the smaller- and lesser-known TR-organisations!
Attractive - and actually never before encountered! - example of a Waffen-SS-related booklet-/ie. brochure entitled: 'Die Panzerabwehrschlacht bei Arras 1940' as compiled by the: 'SS-Kriegberichter' Hein Schlecht This IMO early-war- (ie. IMO in 1941-) published (32 paged- and/or soft-covered-) booklet as compiled in the German language - is actually a detailed 'eye-witness report' of the famous- and/or fierce tank-battle that took place in in French town of Arras, in May 1940. The soft-covered - and actually very fragile booklet - only sized: 21 x 13,5 cms. - is apart from its cover void of illustrations and only holds text: it was a publication in the series: 'Hillgers Deutsche Bücherei' which was published by the similarly named publisher and was given the number: '682' within the series. The booklet is entitled: 'Die Panzerabwehrschlacht bei Arras 1940' and holds the sub-title: 'Erlebnisbericht von den Kämpfen der Waffen-SS von Kriegsberichter Hein Schlecht' (something that is clearly stated on the first page - see pictures). The booklet is moreover 'personalised' by the previous owner (a certain: 'M. Schweineberg') as can be seen on the first page and also shows some underlined text (done by greyish-coloured pencil). This fragile publication is as stated in an overall very nice condition and is truly void of any real damage (some minimal age- and/or staining is however present). I am convinced that this is a rarely encountered Waffen-SS-related publication that is not often offered for sale. Simply a very nice and desirable 'Waffen-SS'-related item that I have priced according to its overall nice and/or fully complete condition!
Attractive - and actually never before encountered! - unfinished (ie. not yet folded-!) example of a standard-type WH (Heeres ie. Kriegsmarine), steel-based belt-buckle as produced by the: 'EC'-company - overall nice condition! This is an attractive - and actually never before encountered! - unfinished (ie. not yet folded-!) example of a 'standard-type' WH (Heeres ie. Kriegsmarine), steel-based belt-buckle as produced by the: 'EC'-company, in overall nice (albeit slightly rusted ie. stained-) condition. The piece - which shows the stamped maker-abbreviation 'EC' and also shows the number: '74' on the back (see pictures) - was simply never used and was (IMO) kept as a souvenir or alike. The piece is made out of non-painted (ie. non-protected!) steel and show some minimal rust-staining and/or dirt caused by handling over the years. (It has however never been cleaned nor polished and comes as found: it still retains nice and pronounced details). I have seen similar examples of these 'Halbfabrikate' in post-war buckle-reference works but have never seen one for sale. I am convinced that this example will attract the buckle-collector: I deem that I have priced this neat item accordingly!
Attractive - and actually never before seen! - WWI-related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie'), as was issued to commemorate: 'Den gefallenen d. Grosshzgl. Hess. Garde Drag.Rgts. No.23 ........Darmstadt - 1-2-X-1927' - overall nice (albeit issued-) condition! This is an attractive - and actually never before encountered nor seen! - WWI-related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie'), as was issued to commemorate: 'Den gefallenen d. Grosshzgl. Hess. Garde Drag.Rgts. No.23 U.d. Grosshzgl. Hess. Leib Dragoner Rgts. No.24 - 1914-1918 - Darmstadt - 1-2-X-1927', in overall nice (albeit issued ie. worn-) condition. The detailed badge - which is executed in greyish-silver coloured so-called 'tin-based'-material (some sort of tin) shows extraordinary detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished. The neat piece is void of a makers'-mark and shows a crypte with above that a burning fire with under this the text as mentioned above. It comes on its (functional-) pin-/catch set-up. Simply a very nice - and most certainly not that often encountered and/or early-period (ie. 1927-dated!) - WWI-related 'tinnie'!
Attractive - and actually not that easilly encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine) aluminium-based- and/or: matching, so-called: 'pith-helmet' shield-set, both pieces neatly maker-marked with the 'G.B.' makers'-logo and date: '1941' This is a truly very attractive WH (Kriegsmarine): 'DAK' (ie. 'Deutsches Afrikakorps') aluminium-based- and/or: fully matching, so-called: 'pith-helmet' shield-set, both pieces being neatly maker-marked on the back with the makers’-logo ie. date: 'G.B. 41', in overall very nice (IMO virtually mint-/unissued-), condition. Both - very detailed and/or pronounced - pieces retain their original (three) completely present - and/or also aluminium-based and/or very fragile! - pins and are IMO in fully stonemint-/ie. unissued condtion (the set was most certainly never before mounted on a pith-helmet and was kept as such for decades). The black- (ie. red- and/or golden-) painted areas (on both shields) do truly show most of their original colour, but do also show some minimal scratches and/or paint-loss (IMO simply caused by decades of storage ie. handling only). Actually, are these genuine pith-helmet shields - having their original and/or undamaged aluminium-based prongs! - not that easy to encounter. Simply a nice opportunity to acquire an original 'DAK' (or 'Afrikakorps') so-called 'pith-helmet' shield-set as was produced by the 'G.B.'- (ie. 'Gustav Brehmer'-) company!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - colourfull, SA- (ie. 'Sturmabteilungen'-) related day-badge (ie.

'Sturmabteilungen'-) related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie'), as was executed in beige-/white-coloured- and neatly coloured-, 'resin'-based material as was issued to commemorate a specific SA-rally ie. sports-gathering entitled: 'SA-Wehrwettkampftage 1939', in overall very nice (albeit issued ie. moderately worn-) condition. The very detailed and/or pronounced badge shows extraordinary detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished: almost all its green-, red- , golden and/or brown-coloured finish has been nicely preserved (see pictures). The piece shows an eagle-device holding a sword and the: 'SA'-logo and provincial shield (see pictures). The badge - which shows the makers'-designation: 'R.Sieper u. Söhne - Lüdenscheid' as well as the 'RzM M9/25'-designation - on its back - naturally comes mounted on its (functional-) pin-/catch set-up. Simply a very nice - and most certainly not that often encountered! - SA-related 'tinnie'!

Klasse mit Schwerter' (or: war-merits-cross first class with swords) being a neatly maker- (ie. 'L/11'-) marked example that comes mounted on its long-sized pin, in overall nice- (albeit clearly worn- ie. used-) condition. The piece is executed in fairly shiny- and/or: silver-coloured metal and still shows a fair bit of its (off-factory) polished-highlights (ie. 'hochpolierte Kanten') - see pictures. As stated does the miniature show a clear 'L/11'-marking on its back denoting that it was a quality-piece that was produced by the: 'Wilhelm Deumer'-company based in town of Lüdenscheid. The piece - which truly has great pronounced detail! - is IMO only minimally worn and does show some minimal age- and/or staining (see pictures). It should be noted that these attractive 17 mm.-sized: 'Halbminiature' are often more difficult to encounter than their regular-sized counterparts. Simply a very attractive example!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - example of a: 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Silber', being a neatly maker- (ie. '30'-) marked example as was executed in: 'Buntmetall', as was produced by the maker: 'Hauptmünzamt Wien' This is a truly attractive example of a silver wound badge (or: 'Verwundeten Abzeichen in Silber'), which is neatly maker-marked on the back with the makers'-code: '30' (signifying that it deals with a piece that was produced by the: maker- ie. 'Hersteller' named: 'Hauptmünzamt Wien'), in overall nice- (and IMO only moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. The badge - which is executed in silvered-, so-called: 'Buntmetall' - shows only moderate wear ie. age and has a correct - and of course fully functional - pin- and/or catch (-set-up) in place. The badge has never been cleaned and shows only minimal tarnish and/or wear: it truly retains most of its period-applied silverish finish. Simply a very attractive and/or neatly maker-marked-, silver-class WB that is IMO accordingly priced!

The piece is IMO only minimally used and/or worn and does show some minimal age, stainig and/or wear (some minimal rust-staining is visible on the catch only as can be seen on the pictures). The zinc-based buckle - that originates from a private household in Germany where it was recently found - retains a fully preserved (black-painted) swastika (see pictures) and retains great, pronounced detail overall. Simply a very attractive and with certainty scarcely encountered- and 'early-period and/or Luftwaffe-related' so-called: 'Deutsche Luftsport Verband'-belt buckle!

This IMO mid-war- published (24 paged- and/or soft-covered-) booklet - in German language - is full of information on the Kriegsmarine in general (it provides descriptions on various training possibilities, salaries, ‘how to become an officer’, naval insignia, general information etc., etc.). The soft-covered - and very fragile booklet - only sized: 17,5 x 12 cms. - also has various neat illustrations and/or pictures and was intended to promote the Kriegsmarine for the future soldiers. This fragile booklet is as stated in an overall very nice condition (ie. almost mint-!) and is truly void of any damage. Most times this neat booklet is found in much more damaged and clearly used condition. Simply a very nice and desirable Kriegsmarine-related item that I have priced according to its overall very nice and/or fully complete condition!

The examples on offer here were IMO once tunic-attached and show one single-pieced-, machine-embroidered oakleaf-stripe and separately attached bar, signifying that it was set of rank-pieces that was intended for usage by a: a: 'Leutnant' or: 'Waffen-SS Untersturmführer'. The pieces are constructed from two single pieces of black-coloured- (and finely structured-) wool that shows the embroidered oakleaf-stripe and separately attached bar ie. stripe (as executed in green-coloured-, specifc 'braid'). The set is naturally a genuine, period pair that is IMO priced according to its comparative scarcity!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - SA- (ie. 'Sturmabteilungen'-) related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie'), as was issued to commemorate an SA-rally held in Sachsen on 25 March 1934 - overall nice (albeit issued ie. worn-) condition! This is a very attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - SA- (ie. 'Sturm- abteilungen'-) related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie'), as was issued to commemorate a specific SA-rally held in the Sachsen province on 25 March 1934, in overall nice (albeit issued ie. moderately worn-) condition. The detailed badge - which is executed in silver-toned metal (IMO tin-) - truly shows extraordinary detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished. The (unmarked- and fairly large sized-) piece shows an oakleave-wreath wherein the SA-logo above the shield of the Sachsen-province is depicted and comes on its (functional) pin-/catch set-up. Simply a very nice - and most certainly not that often encountered and early-period - SA-related 'tinnie'!

'tinnie' or: 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen'), as was issued to commemorate the: 'SA-Wehrkampftage Nordsee' held in 1939 This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - greyish-coloured-, SA- (ie.

Lück'-) and/or: 'RzM M1/50'- marked example, as was issued to commemorate the: 'SA-Wehrkampftage Nordsee' held in the town of Bremen, from 7 to 9 July, 1939, in overall very nice (albeit issued and/or worn-) condition. The detailed badge - which is executed in greyish-silver coloured so-called 'resin-based'-material (some sort of predecessor of plastic) shows extraordinary detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished. The neat piece shows a makers-mark on the back (that reads: 'Steinhauer u. Lück - Lüdenscheid') and shows a shield depicting a lighthouse with above the SA-logo (ie. device) surrounded by the text: 'SA-Wehrkampf- tage Nordsee'. It comes naturally mounted on its (functional) pin-/catch set-up. Simply a very nice - and most certainly not that often encountered - SA-related 'tinnie'!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - small-sized-, period photo, depicting a WH (Heeres) 'Panzer'-soldier in front of his tank (being IMO a tank of the type: 'Panzerkampwagen III') This is an attractive, small-sized-, period photo (only sized: 9,5 x 6,5 cms.) depicting a WH (Heeres) 'Panzer'-soldier in front of his tank (being IMO a 'Panzerkampwagen III') as being transported on a train, in overall nice condition. The picture shows a WH Heeres 'Panzer' soldier (I deem officer) wearing his black-coloured, 'wrap-around'-tunic and/or pants. The picture was apparently sent as a war-souvenir and shows a date and/or text on its back that reads: 'Im Osten, 10-6-1944 - Meiner lieben Hilde zum Andenken an Deine.... ' (hard to read the name - see pictures). Simply a very attractive, WH (Heeres) 'Panzer'-related picture!

The badge - which is void of any makers'-designation as more often - comes naturally mounted on its (fully functional- and/or totally unaltered-) pin-/catch set-up (see pictures). It retains a fully undamaged, golden-toned finish and has as stated above an undamaged, enamelled surface. These attractive badges were awarded (in similar form and/or model) from 1941 onwards and are actually not that commonly encountered. The extensive series is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken Abzeichen-Katalog' wherein this particular example is referenced under the unique number: 'A61U' and given an estimated value of 220 Eu. This example originates from a German flea-market and was never before in a collection. IMO did I price this attractive and/or nicely preserved-, 'high-quality-produced' example of an: 'Gauleistungsabzeichen in Gold für Pistole - 1943' accordingly!

Poellath - Schrobenhausen' as more often - comes naturally mounted on its (fully functional- and/or totally unaltered-) pin-/catch set-up (see pictures). It retains a fully undamaged, golden-toned finish and has an undamaged, red- ie. green-coloured- and painted surface. These attractive badges were awarded (in similar form and/or model) from 1941 onwards and are actually not that commonly encountered. The extensive series is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken Abzeichen-Katalog' wherein this particular example is referenced under the unique number: 'A61K' and given an estimated value of 150 Eu.

Erinnerungsabzeichen') as was worn by members of the '90. Panzergrenadier-Division' (aka: 'Sardinienschild'), in overall very nice (and IMO moderately used- and/or worn-) condition. The lapel-pin - which comes as recently found at a private household depicts the map of the island of Sardinia with a diagonal sword across mentioning the towns of Olbia and Cagliari and comes in an overall nice, albeit moderately used- and/or worn-, condition: it was made of silver-toned metal but has lost a fair bit of its silverish-finish (it shows the copper-toned underlay in certain places, simply caused by having been moderately worn - see pictures). The piece has a slightly darkened age-patina but has IMO never been cleaned and retains its detailed appearance. These 'semi-official' pins were worn on both the 'M43-type'-caps and/or civil ie. military attire. The neat pin - which comes on its functional pin-/catch-set-up - is also figured in the Heering-Hüsken lapel-pin-catalogue, wherein it is given a unique number: 9841A and an estimated value of 380 Euro. As possibly known have these pins a 'semi-official status': these pins were, however, awarded with an accompanying, specific award-document and were also appropiately entered in both: 'Wehrpass' and/or 'Soldbuch'. Simply a very attractive and desirable 'Panzergrenadiere'-related item that is IMO accordingly priced!

'Kokarde für Offiziers-Schiffchen'), as was executed in multi-toned braid, as was specifically intended for usage on the various officers-model side-caps (ie. 'Schiffchen für Offiziere'), that comes in an overall nice (IMO virtually mint- and/or never cap-attached-), condition. This example is nicely hand-embroidered using (bright and shiny-) silverish- and/or black-coloured braid having a bright-red-coloured- and/or felt-based inner-section (see pictures). This example was simply never used- nor cap-attached and is void of any damage nor staining ie. corroded areas - see pictures. The cocarde shows a black-coloured-, carton-based 'backing' as is more often observed. Simply an attractive example of the 'Extra Klasse'-quality that can naturally easily be attached to any 'Heeres'-officers side-cap (ie. 'Schiffchen für Offiziere')!

'standard-issued', towel (ie.

The towel - which is approximately sized: 96 x 53,5 cms. and does show a horizontally mounted- and/or blue-coloured stripe - was possibly issued but simply never used and still retains a somewhat 'hardened touch': it just shows some minimal aging ie. staining simply caused by decades of storage only. Moreover, shows this particular example a machine-embroidered monogram (that shows the characters: 'AR' as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very nice - and most certainly not that often seen! - personal naval-equipment-item: great to store in a soldiers' bread-bag or to be used in any equipment set-up!

Attractive - and actually only once before encountered! - 'NS-Frauenschaft'-related sports-shirt-badge, being a medium-sized- (and/or maker-marked!) example as executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern This particular 'NS-Frauenschaft'-related sports-shirt-badge was without doubt intended to signify membership within the German Womens' Association (or in German-language: 'NS Frauenschaft') and was never used- nor shirt-attached: it can easily be graded 'virtually mint-/unissued' and came 'as straightly cut-off the role'. The example on offer here is a medium-sized version that measures 10,5 x 10 cms. - see pictures. The badge is neatly woven in black-coloured linnen on a white-coloured (and also linnen-based-) background and is a clear example of the neat 'BeVo-weave'-technique (as stated does the badge also show an interwoven makers'-mark that reads: 'BeVo - Wuppertal' - see pictures).

The neat red-/white-striped- (ie. 'rotmelliertes'-) example on offer here comes still mounted on its (typical shaped- and/or silver-chromed-) 'clip' and was as such intended to signify the rank/function of: 'Kameradschaftsführer' upto 'Oberkameradschaftsführer' (within the HJ etc.). The neat lanyard - which measures approximately 33 cms. from top to end - shows minimal wear ie. usage: it was IMO only moderately worn ie. used and was kept as such for decades. Simply a very attractive, youth-related 'leaders-lanyard' (ie. 'Führerschnur') that is almost impossible to upgrade!
Attractive - and actually quite scarcely encountered! - metal-based cap-badge, as intended for usage on a visor-cap of the: 'Nationalsozialistischer Kriegsopfer- versorgung' (ie.: 'N.S.K.O.V.') - overall nice condition! This is a truly attractive - and actually quite scarcely encountered! - metal-based ie. chromed-steel-based cap-badge, as intended for usage ie. wear on a visor-cap (ie. 'Schirmmütze') of the: 'Nationalsozialistischer Kriegsopferversorgung' (or: 'N.S.K.O.V.'), in overall nice (albeit moderately used and/or cap-removed-) condition. The - very detailed and/or pronounced - badge shows some regular wear but has no defaults whatsoever (it has never been cleaned nor polished and still retains its black-painted cross in its centre). The badge - which is not maker-marked - still retains its three (still fully functional) copper-based prongs and can naturally easily serve to complete a N.S.K.O.V.-visor-cap. Surely nice and unusually encountered cap-badge!
Attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - example of a 'Polizei' (ie. 'SS-Polizei') officers-pattern side-cap (ie. 'Schiffchen für Offiziere'), being a larger-sized example, that has its ('BeVo'-woven pattern-) insignia period-attached by hand This is a truly attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - example of an (IMO mid- ie. later-war-period-) 'Polizei' (ie. 'SS-Polizei') officers-pattern side-cap (ie. 'Schiffchen für Offiziere'), being a larger-sized example as executed in typical police-green-coloured wool, that came with its ('BeVo'-woven pattern-) insignia period-attached by hand, in overall very nice, albeit moderately used ie. worn-, condition. The neat cap is truly 'text-book' in all facets, shows no real damage whatsoever and is in great shape overall (almost all woolen 'nap' is present). The cap - which shows two typical 'Polizei'-type, metal-based vent-holes - has a nice, silverish-/white-coloured- (albeit somewhat stained) 'BeVo'-woven eagle-device attached (which insignia-piece was period-attached to the cap by hand). Moreover, shows the cap a silver-coloured piping attached (denoting officers'-usage). The cap - which is nicely sized and will fit any mannequins'-head - only shows some minimal age ie. staining (it does show some minimal traces of having been worn, especially on the inside - see pictures). The lining is executed in (fairly shiny) linnen shows a (regrettably non-decypherable-) makers-stamp and/or size (both stamps are executed in a box-shaped format but were simply faded-out during usage - see pictures). The piece - which originates from a private address in Germany - was never before part of any collection and was simplhy stored as such for decades. The lining still shows a period-attached safety-pin (attached in order to keep a nice format!). Simply a very nice and only moderately used so-called: 'Polizei' (ie. 'SS-Polizei') officers-pattern side-cap (ie. 'Schiffchen'): with certainty one the nicest such examples I ever had on offer!
Attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - large-sized-, WH (Luftwaffe) hand-embroidered-, officers'-type-, cape- (ie. arm-eagle) or: 'Offiziers-Hoheitsabzeichen für Umhang', having an approximate wingspan of 18,5 cms. The neat (arm-) eagle truly shows stunning- and pronounced detail and shows extraordinary (hand-) embroidery and can of course easily be used to restore any LW officers'-cape (ie. 'Umhang') if wished so. The - very decorative! - piece which has been constructed from various types of silver-coloured and/or fairly 'shiny' (silverish-coloured-) braid has a total 'wingspan' of approximately 18 cms. and shows a white- (ie. transparant-) coloured-, paper-based 'backing' as is more often (as can be seen on the pictures). Of additional interest is the fact that this example shows a (printed) inventory-number that reads: '2259' (see pictures). In order to get a better impression of the eagles'-size did I added an additional photo of the piece next to a regular-sized, N.S.D.A.P.-membership lapel-pin. The piece was with certainty once cape-attached (it still shows some clearly present stitching-remains) and does show some moderate age, wear- and/or minimal staining (and is also minimally corroded in some areas as can be noticed). It should be note that these attractive 'Luftwaffe-Offiziers-Hoheitsabzeichen für Umhang' can easily be graded 'scarce' and are not that often offered for sale!

Attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - neatly maker- (ie. 'E.S.P.'-) marked example of a black wound-badge (or: 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Schwarz') as being executed in fairly heavy-weight- and/or: zinc-based- metal (ie. 'Feinzink') The attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - woundbadge does show some moderate wear and/or aging and has lost a fair bit of its original, black-coloured finish: it does show, morover, moderate wear, age and/or staining as to be expected. The woundbadge - which IMO dates from a later-war production and that was recently found at a private household in Germany - is as stated neatly maker-marked with the (unusually seen!) makers'-signification: 'E.S.P.' on its back (see pictures) signifying that it deals with a piece that was produced by a to date still unidentified maker. Of course, are the (regular- ie. thin-shaped- and/or copper-based-) pin and/or (typical) catch (-set-up) fully functional and of course present. This piece has never been cleaned nor polished: it shows some minimal dust and/or staining as to be expected. Just the first such neat 'variant-pattern'- and/or: unusually 'Feinzink'-based black-class WB I did ever had on offer!
Attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - SS- (ie. SA-) armband (ie. 'Armbinde'), as was intended for members and/or staff that served within an: 'SS- o. SA-Stammabteilung' (or supplementary reserve-unit) This is an attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - linnen-based SS- (ie. SA-related-) armband (ie. 'Armbinde'), as was specifically intended for usage by members within an: 'SS- o. SA-Stammabteilung' (or: supplementary reserve-unit), depicting the interwoven swastika on a white background and having two grey-coloured stripes in place, in overall nice (and IMO only slightly used ie. worn-) condition. These neat armbands were specifically intended for SS- (ie. SA-) members being over 45 years of age and were only authorised for wear for a very short period of time (they were already disbanded in mid-1937). They were worn on all various SS- and/or SA-uniforms amongst which the black attire. This example on offer here - having a total size of 38 cms. - is neatly - and entirely! - woven in the so-called: 'BeVo-weave technique': it shows some truly minor wear and/or usage (some minimal staining is visible and it is also a bit wrinkled). The piece still shows the remains of its (paper-based-) etiket as can be seen on the photos. It should be noted that these entitely 'woven' examples are not that commonly encountered as their woolen-based counterparts. Simply a nice and truly rarely seen SS- (ie. SA-)related item that is IMO accordingly priced!

Attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - SS-related 'tinnie', being a maker- (ie. 'Carl Peters - Schmalkalden'-) marked example, showing the text: 'SS - Sportschiess-Wettbewerb der 57. SS-Standarte - Schmalkalden Thüringen' The neatly silver-toned badge (ie. 'tinnie' or: 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen') is IMO executed in silver-coloured and/or tin-based metal: it shows some normal wear and/or moderate age but has IMO never been cleaned nor polished (it is still a bit dirty but has maintained a very nice, somewhat tarnished age-patina). The badge has a functional pin-/catch set-up and shows some minimal age ie. staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The 'tinnie' is very detailed and retains most of its period-applied silver-coloured finish (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece shows a castle, shooting-roundel and/or shield with SS-runes surrounded by the text: 'SS - Sportschiess-Wettbewerb der 57. SS-Standarte - Schmalkalden Thüringen'. Moreover, is the piece neatly maker-marked on the back of the attachment-pin with the makers'-signification: 'Carl Peters - Schmalkalden' (see pictures). Simply an attractive example of this desirable and/or sought-after, SS-related so-called: 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen': I have seen examples of this particular tinnie for much more than my asking-price!
Attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - tropical-pattern, WH (Heeres) side-cap eagle- and dito cocarde insignia-set (ie. 'Mützenadler u. Kokarde für Schiffchen'), both pieces as executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern This is an attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - tropical-pattern, WH (Heeres) side-cap eagle- and dito cocarde insignia-set (ie. 'Mützenadler u. Kokarde für Tropen-Schiffchen'), both pieces as executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern-, both examples as executed on a typical-, tan-coloured- (and/or also linnen-based-) background, in overall very nice ie. virtually mint-/unissued-) condition. These attractive tropical insignia-sets were used by members of the: 'Deutsches Afrikakorps' (DAK) and were intended for the side-caps but also saw usage on the scarcely encountered so-called: 'M41-type'- field-caps (or: 'Einheitsfeldmützen'). Later on in the war these sets saw usage on the Balkan- and/or Mediterranean war-fronts. This neat set comes in a virtually mint-/unissued condition and comes IMO 'as straightly cut-off the role': it does show some minor age and/or staining simply caused by years of storage only. Simply a rarely encountered tropical-pattern, WH (Heeres) side-cap eagle- and dito cocarde insignia-set!

Attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - WH (Heer) lapel-pin (ie. 'Traditions- /Erinnerungsabzeichen') aka: 'Sardinienschild', as worn by members of the: '90. Panzergrenadier-Division' This is truly very attractive - and most certainly rarely encountered! - WH (Heer) lapel-pin ie. campaign-shield (or: 'Traditions-/Erinnerungsabzeichen') as was worn by the members of the: '90. Panzergrenadier-Division' and which is also known as the: 'Sardinienschild' (depicting the map of Sardinia with a diagonal sword across), in overall very nice (and IMO only moderately used and/or worn-) condition. The pin - which comes as recently found at a private household - is in an overall very nice, albeit IMO sligthly used and/or worn condition: it is made of copper-toned (ie. silver-coloured-) metal and has a slightly darkened age-patina. It has IMO never been cleaned and retains a fair bit of its silver- (ie. golden-) toned finish and/or detailed appearance. These 'semi-official' pins were worn on both the M43-caps and/or civil ie. military attire. The neat pin - which comes naturally mounted on its functional pin-/catch-set-up - is also figured in the Heering-Hüsken lapel-pin catalogue, wherein it is given a unique reference-number: 9841A and an estimated value of 380 Euro. As possibly known had these pins a 'semi-official'-status: these pins were awarded with a specific award-document and were also appropiately entered in both 'Wehrpass' and/or 'Soldbuch'. Simply a very nice and desirable 'Panzergrenadiere'-related item ie. 'Traditions-/Erinnerungsabzeichen'!
Attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - WH (Luftwaffe) hand-embroidered, officers'-type, cape-eagle (ie. 'Offiziers-Hoheitsabzeichen für Umhang'), having a wingspan of 18 cms. (!) - overall nice condition! This is a truly attractive and/or detailed example of a WH (Luftwaffe) hand-embroidered officers'-type, officers'-type cape-eagle (ie. 'Offiziers-Hoheitsabzeichen für Umhang') having a wingspan of 18 cms. (!), in overall very nice (IMO virtually mint-/unissued- albeit minimally corroded-) condition. The (arm-) eagle truly shows stunning detail and shows extraordinary embroidery and can of course easily be used to restore any LW officers'-cape (ie. 'Umhang') if wished so. The - very decorative! - piece which has a total 'wingspan' of approximately 18 cms. - shows a black-coloured-, paper-based backing and also shows a stamped number that reads '22' or alike (inventory number?). It should be mentioned that these desirable and rarely encountered cape-eagles are often found as copies: this is of course a 100% genuine, period-piece for which I provide a life-time garuantee. This is only the second such rare piece I have ever offered for sale!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), IMO early-war- ie. pre-war-period (ie. 'M36'-model and/or rounded-style-) EM-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for a: 'Soldat der Pionier-Truppen' This is a truly attractive - and actually scarcely encountered and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), IMO early-war- (ie. pre-war-period ie. 'M36'-model and/or rounded-style-) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps as piped in the neat black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der Pionier-Truppen' (or simple engineer-soldier), in overall very nice (ie. IMO hardly used- ie. worn-) condition. The neat schoulderstraps - which have the 'standard'-pattern-, darker-green coloured- and/or: truly smooth-woolen-based 'upperdecks' - have the black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured- (and/or: desirable 'silk-like'-type-) piping attached (see pictures). The straps measure approximately 11 cms. in length each. The straps - which are IMO of the regular-issued - (ie. non-private-production-type) - come mounted on their functional tongues and come of course in a very nice, ie. fully 'text-book' condition overall. The set shows - as stated above - only minimal wear and/or age: they do show some minimal age, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a great occasion to acquire a very attractive and with certainty desirable 'Pioniere'-related-, enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap-pair that was never before in a collection: I do not exactly know for what reason but these 'simple' 'Soldat der Pionier-Truppen'-shoulderstrap-pairs can easily be considered 'scarce'!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - 'standard-issued'-type, WH binoculars 'Dienstglas' 6 x 30 so-called: 'anti-movement flap' (or: 'Tragelasche') as executed in black-coloured leather, being a 'WaA'-marked example This is a little piece of equipment that is often missing in an equipment set-up: a so-called leather-based, 'anti-movement flap' (or: 'Tragelasche') as was fitted for usage on the standard-pattern WH binoculars called: 'Dienstglas - 6 x 30' as was executed in shiny, black-coloured leather, being a neatly 'WaA'-marked example in moderately used condition. The neat piece is as stated IMO only moderately used and shows some regular traces of having been used: the piece is, however, totally undamaged and/or souple and in of course in a functional condition. The flap comes with both its two original blackened- and/or metal-based 'studs' in place and can easily be re-mounted to any binocular-pair. Simply a nice little piece of equipment that would surely look great if re-mounted on a pair of 6 x 30 (or even a 10 x 50) binoculars: a nice example of a fairly hard to find WH equipment-piece!

Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - (and/or fully complete!) TR-period game called: 'Unsere Kriegsmarine - Ein Quartettspiel', which shows the various branches within the German navy (ie. 'Kriegsmarine') within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' This is a truly very attractive - and actually not that often encountered! - (and/or fully complete!) TR-period game called: 'Unsere Kriegsmarine - Ein Quartettspiel', holding a complete deck of playing-cards showing the various branches the German navy (ie. 'Kriegsmarine') within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht', in overall nice- (and/or fully complete!-), condition. The game - which naturally holds all 12 card-sets (each containing 4 cards thus in total having 48 cards) - comes with its original, period- and/or - fairly large-sized - carton-based storage-box: the cards were simply stored as such for decades. The game which includes very interesting card-sets (for example entitled: 'Schiffsgattungen', 'Das Unterseeboot', 'Leben an Bord eines Kriegsschiffes', 'Die “Schleswig-Holstein” gegen Polen' and/or: 'Unsere blauen Jungen bei den Deutschen im Ausland' to name a few titles and as such provides a neat insight into the various branches within the German navy (ie. 'Kriegsmarine'). The set comes also with an extra card (listing a few other games) as offered by the producing-company named: 'Scholz Militärische Spiele'. Each card (which is sized 12 x 8 cms.) shows a neat and interesting photo: being an life-like illustration or scene. Some of the pictures are really nice and some of them I have never seen before. The game is IMO only minimally used and played-with and shows only minimal wear and/or usage: the illustration on the front of the carton storage-box is also beautifully preserved. Simply a very nice and unusual TR-period card-game that is not easily encountered this complete: in this wonderfull condition the game can easily be regarded as 'scarce'!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - aluminium-based-, female-type WH (Kriegsmarine) ie. 'Marinehelferin'-related ID-disc, bearing the clearly stamped (coded) unit-designation: '6880/43 - Marinehelferin' This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - aluminium-based- (and neatly 'Feuervergoldetes') example of a female-type WH (Kriegsmarine) ie. 'Marinehelferin'-related ID-disc, bearing the clearly stamped (and/or coded!) unit-designation: '6880/43 - Marinehelferin' (and as such being intended for a female naval-employee who was enlisted in the year: '1943'), that comes in an overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition. The example on offer here is executed in bright-golden-coloured- and/or aluminium-based material (as more often) and comes in an overall nice (albeit clearly used ie. worn-) condition. The attractive disc is in overall nice condition (and is executed in an attractive letter-type!) and shows the clear evidence of having been used ie. worn (it shows truly torn-out holes - see pictures). The disc was never cleaned nor polished (it is still a bit stained and/or dirty). The disc originates from a larger ID-disc collection that was compiled over many years. It should be noted that these female-related: 'Marinehelferin'-units where comparatively small-sized, implying that ID-discs belonging to staff that served in these units can be easily regarded 'very scarce'. Simply an attractive and honest WH (Kriegsmarine) ie. 'Marinehelferin'-related-ID-disc that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - aluminium-based-, WH (Kriegsmarine) related ID-disc, bearing the name of the bearer: 'Johann Reichel' and/or: clearly stamped (coded) unit-designation: 'O 1322/41 S' This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - aluminium-based-, WH (Kriegsmarine) related ID-disc (ie. 'Erkennungsmarke'), bearing the name of the bearer: 'Johann Reichel' and/or: clearly stamped (coded) unit-designation: 'O 1322/41 S' (and as such being intended for a naval soldier who was enlisted in the year: '1941' and who (IMO) served within a unit that operated in the 'Ostsee'-area), that comes in an overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition. The example on offer here is executed in bright-silver-coloured- and/or: aluminium-based material (as more often) and comes in an overall nice (albeit clearly used ie. worn-) condition. The attractive disc is in overall nice condition (and is executed in an attractive letter-type!) and shows the clear evidence of having been used ie. worn (it shows truly torn-out holes - see pictures). The disc was never cleaned nor polished (it is still a bit stained and/or dirty). The disc originates from a larger ID-disc collection that was compiled over many years. It should be noted that all 'Kriegsmarine'-related ID-discs can be easily regarded 'scarce'. Simply an attractive and honest WH (Kriegsmarine)-related-ID-disc that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - breast- and sportsshirt-badge, as were both worn by members of the WWII-period Belgian- (ie. Flemish-) youth-collaborationists'-movement: 'Jong Dinaso' This is an actually quite rarely observed two pieced insignia-set that was worn by members of the WWII-period Belgian- (ie. Flemish-) youth-collaborationists'-movement called: 'Jong Dinaso' (being the youth-department of the Flemish-/Dutch party: 'Verdinaso' ie. 'Verbond van Dietsche Nationaal-Solidaristen'), both pieces in overall nice (albeit used ie. worn-) condition. The 'Verdinaso' (or: 'Verbond van Dietsche Nationaal-Solidaristen' or in English 'Union of Diets National Solidarists') was an authoritarian and fascist-inspired political party in Belgium and the Netherlands during the 1930s and 40s. It was founded by Joris van Severen, Jef François, Wies Moens, and Emiel Thiers on October 6, 1931 (at the Hôtel Richelieu in Ghent) and, in 1937, developed a paramilitary-wing that wore green shirts (the 'DINASO Militanten Orde'). When WWII broke out Joris van Severen was killed in Abbéville, France, suspected of being an agent of Nazi Germany, and as part of some executions of Rexists and Belgian communists (both groups were suspected of pro-German activism, justified by the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact in the case of the latter). Consequently, the 'Verdinaso' lost a clear direction (despite Van Severen's replacement with Jef François) and was eventually forced to join the Flemish National Union on May 5, 1941. The breast-badge on offer here measures aprroximately 4 x 2,8 cms. and is in overall nice condition: it is very detailed and shows a 'stylised' (and left-facing) sea-gull design. The piece is quite converse-shaped and regrettably misses one of its attachments on the back (see pictures). The second patch concerns a neatly machine-embroidered (done in blue-coloured, so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei') sport-shirt badge that measures approximately 10 x 9 cms. This example is just a tiny bit stained and wrinkled (caused by decades of storage only). Simply a nice opportunity to acquire a fairly rarely seen Flemish-/Dutch collaborationist memorabilia-set!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - brownish-coloured-, 'N.S.D.A.P.'- (ie. 'Pol. Leiter'-) related tie (ie. 'Halsbinde o.

'Politische Leiter'-) related tie (ie. 'Halsbinde o. Krawatte') being a mint-/unissued example that still retains its period-attached- and/or cloth-based 'RzM-etiket', in overall very nice, ie. virtually mint-, condition. The neat piece is totally void of any damage or alike and is just a tiny bit wrinkled- (and/or minimally dusty-) simply caused by decades of storage only (see pictures). Simply a very attractive - and actually truly scarcely encountered! - 'N.S.D.A.P.'- (ie. 'Politische Leiter'-) related uniform-equipment-item!

The badge on offer here - showing a swastika-sign surrounded by the D.A.F. 'Zahnrad'-sign ie. logo with below that the text: 'Übungswart' - is beautifully executed in so-called 'BeVo'-weave pattern and is backed with: bright-red-coloured- (and/or: linnen-based-) cloth (see pictures). The badge - which measures 9,5 x 8,5 cms. - is clearly worn and shows some normal wear, age and/or staining. Simply an attractive and most certainly scarcely encountered arm-badge!

'tinnie' or: 'Veranstalstungs- abzeichen') that was issued to commemorate the: 'I. N.S.-Reichsjugendtag 1932' held in the town of Nürnberg, being a neatly maker- (ie. 'F. Hoffstätter - Berlin'-) marked example, in overall very nice (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-) condition. The very detailed and/or pronounced badge - which is executed in silver-toned metal (IMO tin ie. silvered copper-) - truly shows extraordinary detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished. The (as stated neatly maker- and/or: 'Ges.Gesch.'-marked-) crest-shaped piece depicts a sword-illustration with swastika with above that the text: : 'I. N.S.-Reichsjugendtag 1932' and comes on its (functional) pin-/catch set-up. Simply a very nice - and most certainly not that often encountered and/or truly early-period - HJ- ('Hitlerjugend') (ie.

The very detailed and/or pronounced badge - which is executed in silver-toned metal (IMO tin ie. silvered copper-) - truly shows extraordinary detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished: it is still somewhat tarnished by age. The crest-shaped piece (which is as stated above neatly maker- and/or: 'Ges.Gesch.'-marked-) depicts a sword-illustration with swastika with above that the text: 'I. N.S.-Reichsjugendtag 1932' and comes on its (functional) pin-/catch set-up: moreover, is this piece 'personalised' by the recepient: it bears the engraved name: 'Schütz' (or alike). Simply a very nice - and most certainly not that often encountered and/or truly early-period - HJ- ('Hitlerjugend') (ie. N.S.D.A.P.-) related 'tinnie'.

Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCO-) type armband as was intended for usage by a member who served within the 'Sicherheitsdienst'- (ie. 'SD'-) related so-called: 'Schützmannschaften' (ie. 'Schuma') This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCO-) type armband as was intended for usage by a member who served within the 'Sicherheits- dienst'- (ie. 'SD'-) related so-called: 'Schützmannschaften' (ie. 'Schuma'), being a piece that comes in a very nice (ie. IMO only minimally used- ie. worn-), condition. The piece is executed in typical green-coloured linnen and shows the text: 'Im Dienste der Sicherheitspolizei' printed in black as to be expected. The armband is a full-length- (ie. 32 cms.) sized example and has neatly 'finished borders' (executed in black-coloured-, linnen-based thread) as usual. It should be specifically mentioned that these notorious 'Schützmannschaften' (ie. 'Schuma') were staffed with men entirely coming from the Baltic states and had a very bad reputation. In any case is this a sound opportunity to acquire a neat SD-related armband for an IMO competitive price!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCO-) type cap-badge as was intended for usage by a member who served within the 'Sicherheitsdienst'- (ie. 'SD'-) related so-called: 'Schützmannschaften' (ie. 'Schuma') This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - enlisted-mens'- (ie.

'Schuma'), being a piece that comes in a very nice (ie. virtually mint and/or never cap-attached-), condition. The piece is executed in greyish-silver-(ie. almost white-) coloured linnen on a black-coloured- (and also linnen-based-) background and is a typical example of the famous 'BeVo'-weave pattern. The patch came as 'straigthly cut-of the role' and shows the interwoven-, diamond-shaped swastika-sign (as executed in silverish-white-coloured linnen - see pictures). The patch is as stated above never used- nor cap-attached but does show some minimal age and/or staining (simply caused by decades of storage only). It should be mentioned that these notorious 'Schützmannschaften' (ie. 'Schuma') were staffed with men entirely coming from the Baltic states and had a very bad reputation. In any case is this a sound opportunity to acquire a neat SD-related cap-badge for a competitive price!

NCO-type-, cap-badge, as was intended for usage by a member who served within the notorious 'Sicherheitsdienst'- (ie. 'SD'-) related-, so-called: 'Schützmannschaften' (ie. 'Schuma'), all three pieces in a very nice (ie. virtually mint and/or never cap-attached-), condition. The pieces are executed in greyish-silver-coloured linnen on a black-coloured- (and also linnen-based-) background and are typical examples of the famous 'BeVo'-weave pattern. The patches came as 'straigthly cut-of the role' and show the interwoven-, diamond-shaped swastika-sign (as executed in silverish-grey linnen - see pictures). All three patches were as stated above never used- nor cap-attached but do show some minimal age and/or staining (simply caused by decades of storage only). The asking-price is naturally intended for one single cap-badge. These notorious 'Schützmannschaften' (ie. 'Schuma') were staffed with men entirely coming from the Baltic states and had a very bad reputation. In any case is this a sound opportunity to acquire a scarcely encountered SD-related cap-badge for a competitive price!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - example of a female-related- ie. 'RADwJ' (or: 'Reichsarbeitsdienst der Weiblichen Jugend' or: womens' section of the German labour-service) sports-shirt badge This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - example of a female-related- ie. 'RADwJ' (or: 'Reichsarbeitsdienst der Weiblichen Jugend' or: womens' section of the German labour-service) sports-shirt badge, being an example as executed in neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern, that comes in a very nice (ie. virtually mint- ie. unissued-) condition. The fairly large-sized badge - sized: 11 x 10 cms. - is neatly executed in the 'BeVo'-weave technique and just shows some minimal staining caused by years of storage. It comes as straightly cut-off the role and is a tiny bit wrinkled. Simply an attractive and scarcely encountered so-called: 'RADwJ'-related sports-badge that will be hard to be upgraded!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - example of a WH (KM) 'Flotten- kriegsabzeichen' (or high-sea fleet badge), being a neatly maker- (ie. 'Ausf. Schwerin'-) marked- and/or 'Buntmetall'-based example as was produced by the: 'Schwerin'-company This is an attractive - and actually truly scarcely encountered! - example of a WH (Kriegsmarine) 'Flottenkriegsabzeichen' (or high-sea fleet badge), being a neatly maker- (ie. 'Schwerin-Berlin'-) marked example that was executed in 'Tombak'-based metal (ie. 'Buntmetall'), in overall very nice, albeit moderately used- ie. worn-, condition. The very detailed badge retains a fair biy of its period applied golden-toned finish and is nicely maker-marked as stated above: it is just a tiny bit tarnished caused by decades of storage and/or moderate wear (see pictures). The neat badge is as stated above executed in so-called: 'Tombak'-based metal (ie. 'Buntmetall') and comes of course mounted on its functional- and/or unaltered (flute-shaped-) pin and/or typical catch as to be expected with a by 'Schwerin'-produced badge. The award was most certainly never cleaned nor polished and retains as stated extraordinary detail: it comes as recently found and shows two tarnished spots (as can be seen on the pictures). I deem that this example is accordingly priced: it will be very hard to find a better preserved example for a more interesting price!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - example of a zinc-based lapel-pin (ie. so-called: 'Traditions- o. Erinnerungsabzeichen') depicting an elk, surrounded by the text: '1943 Eismeerfront 1944' that comes period-mounted on a leather-based etui This is a truly attractive - and decorative and with certainty scarcely encountered! - example of a zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based lapel-pin (ie. so-called: 'Traditions- o. Erinnerungsabzeichen') depicting an elk (ie. andler), surrounded by the text: '1943 Eismeerfront 1944' that comes period-mounted on a genuine leather-based etui (IMO intended for storing a pay-book or: 'Soldbuch'), that comes in an overall very nice (and only moderately used- and/or worn-), condition. The neat badge belonged with certainty to one of the 'Infanterie'- ie. 'Gebirgsjäger'-divisions within the: 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' that most certainly served in Northern Europe (I have certainly seen the badge before but could not find a reference yet stating which specific division ie. regiment used this particular badge). The neatly constructed circular pin has an approximate diameter of 3,5 cms. - depicts an elk- ie. andler-symbol, surrounded by the text: '1943 Eismeerfront 1944' - and is constructed from silvered (zinc-based) metal: it is a bit dirty but retains a truly nice age patina (some scratching and/or wear is however visible, IMO simply caused by having been worn and/or used). The - maker-marked - piece shows a makers'-abbreviation that reads: 'S.K.' and comes on its four functional metal-based prongs (with which it is mounted on the leather-based etui (which is sized: 15,5 x 11,5 cms.). Both badge- and/or: etui show some regular wear and tarnish (but was most certainly never cleaned nor polished). These 'semi-official' pins were worn on both uniform, cap and/or civil attire. A nice - and most certainly rarely encountered! -'Traditions- o. Erinnerungs- abzeichen': I deem that I have priced this attractive item accordingly!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - female-related, officers'-pattern-, 'RADwJ' sleeve-badge ie. 'Abzeichen des Reichsarbeitsdienst der weiblichen Jugend', as executed in neat 'flat-wire' BeVo-weave pattern This is a very attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - female-related, officers'-pattern-, so-called: 'RADwJ' sleeve badge (ie. 'Abzeichen des Reichsarbeitsdienst der weiblichen Jugend'), as was executed in neat so-called: 'flat-wire'-BeVo-weave pattern, in overall nice (albeit clearly used- and/or tunic-removed ie. worn-), condition. The badge is neatly silver-coloured ie. executed in the neat 'flat-wire'-weave pattern having a typical chocolate-brown-coloured background and was intended for a female RADwJ-officer: it was clearly worn and shows some minimal staining and was neatly period-trimmed (ie. carefully once -pre-folded as can be seen on the pictures). Of additional interest is the fact that this example shows the (Roman-styled-) numerals: 'XIX' (signifying that it was an example that was worn by a member of the 19th region/department ie. 'Bezirk'). The badge is not maker-marked (as is more commonly encountered: most of the copied examples show a full and interwoven logo whereas this example is of course a garuanteed orginal example). It should be noted that excellent copies of these badges do exist: this is naturally a genuine-, period example that originated from a German flea-market. Simply a very nice and truly scarcely encountered, officers'-type RADwJ arm-badge!

Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - genuine helmet-decal (ie. 'Abziehbild für Stahlhelm') depicting the 'Reichsadler'-illustration, being an attractive maker- (ie. ' Gust. Peiniger - Bielefeld'-) marked example This is an attractive - and actually nowadays scarcely encountered! - genuine helmet-decal (ie. 'Abziehbild für Stahlhelm') depicting the 'Reichsadler'-illustration, being an attractive maker- (ie. ' Gust. Peiniger - Bielefeld - No. 7209'- marked example, that comes in a very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued-) condition. The piece was (naturally) never used and can easily be graded 'virtually mint-/unissued': it does show some minimal age and/or staining, simply caused by decades of storage only. It has been some time that I had such a genuine helmet-decal on offer and I am convinced that it will not last long on the web-site!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - HJ (ie.'Hitlerjugend') related 'tinnie' ie. 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen', being a non-maker-marked example, showing the text: '1. Fest der Jugend - Juni 1933' The bright-golden-toned badge (ie. 'tinnie' or: 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen') is executed in golden-coloured and (IMO) tin-based metal: it shows some normal wear and/or moderate age but has IMO never been cleaned nor polished (it is still a bit dirty but has maintained a very nice and as stated above bright age-patina). The badge comes mounted on its functional pin and shows some minimal age ie. staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The 'tinnie' is very detailed and truly retains all its finish (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece shows an illustration of a youth member bearing a flag surrounded by the text: '1. Fest der Jugend - Juni 1933': next to this it also shows the HJ-symbol ie. 'Fahne' or: 'Raute'. Simply an attractive example of this desirable and/or with certainty sought-after- and/or fairly early-period HJ-related so-called: 'HJ-Veranstaltungsabzeichen'!

The very detailed and/or pronounced badge - which is executed in silver-toned metal (ie. silver-toned zinc ie. 'tin') - shows extraordinary detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished. The piece shows a 3 houses with below that a so-called: 'HJ-Raute' (with above and below the a.m. text). The badge - which is void of a makers-mark - comes naturally mounted on its (functional) pin-/catch set-up.

The neat bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured example on offer here still retains its original- (and/or with certainty period-attached!) 'RzM'-etiket ('B-Stück') in place and was as such intended to signify the rank- ie. function of: 'Stammführer' upto: 'Oberstammführer' (within the HJ etc.).

'N.S.R.K.B.'), that comes in a very nice (albeit slightly used ie. worn-), condition. The scarcely encountered lapel-pin shows some minimal wear and/or age (mainly dirt and/or minimal staining but has truly no enamel damage whatsoever - see pictures). The golden-toned pin shows a: 'Ges.Gesch.' patent-pending marking and bears also the number: '4' on its back. The pin - which has naturally a functional pin ie. catch set-up - is also figured in the Heering-Hüsken lapel-pin catalogue, wherein it is given a unique reference-number (9653F) and an estimated value of 100 Eu. Simply an attractive TR-lapel-pin that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - larger-sized, multi-coloured and/or neatly enamelled DRK (ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz') visor-cap badge (or: 'Mützenabzeichen für Schirmmütze') - nice (albeit IMO used and/or cap-removed-) condition!

The piece is void of any makers-mark ie. logo and comes with both its (functional) prongs in place. The piece has stunning (and totally undamaged!) enamel and was IMO never cleaned nor polished and is somewhat stained ie. tarnished. Simply a nice and desirable 'DRK'-item: great to complete any 'DRK-Schirmmütze'!

The piece is void of any makers-mark ie. logo and comes with both its (functional) prongs in place. The piece has stunning enamel and was IMO never cleaned nor polished and is somewhat stained ie. tarnished: it shows a tiny enamel chip on the upper left wing (see pictures). Still a nice and desirable 'DRK'-item: great to complete any 'DRK-Schirmmütze'!

Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - medal: 'Deutsche Volkspflege für Frauen an Bandschleife' (being an example that was specifically intended for women!) that comes mounted on its original and pre-confectioned ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - medal: 'Deutsche Volkspflege für Frauen an Bandschleife' (or: civil-service medal for women that comes mounted on a ribbon-bow) and being as such an example that was specifically intended for women!) that comes mounted on its original and nicely pre-confectioned ribbon (ie. 'Band- abschnitt'), that comes in a very nice and only minimally used- ie. worn- (IMO virtually mint!) condition. The ribbon is bright-red-coloured and has originally been attached to the medal by a medal-maker- or distributor (it still retains its functional, chromed safety-pin as can be seen on the pictures). The medal itself has a very nice age-patina: as often with these 'Feinzink'-based medals is the piece somewhat tarnished and/or greyish in colour (it is also a tiny bit dirty but was never cleaned). The details on this particular piece, however, are truly stunning. Simply a very attractive - and actually quite scarcely encountered! - 'Volkspflege'-medal as was intended for women!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - nicely enamelled, so-called: 'Feuerwehr-Ehrenzeichen der II. Stufe', that comes mounted on its original, full-length piece of ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') as issued ie. worn This is a truly very attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - nicely enamelled and/or: colourfully executed, so-called: 'Feuerwehr-Ehrenzeichen der II. Stufe' (or: fire-brigade honorary medal of the second class), that comes mounted on its original-, full-length piece of ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt'), in overall very nice (IMO only minimally used- ie. worn-) condition. The medal shows IMO some minimal ie. moderate wear and/or: staining (but was IMO never cleaned nor polished). It was period-mounted on its (confectioned- and/or: full length-) piece of ribbon (which measures in total 14 cms. in length). The - truly very detailed- and/or pronounced! - award has a minimally tarnished age-patina and shows a fully undamaged-, fairly glossy- and/or: neatly enamelled, surface without showing any damage (see pictures). The piece just shows some truly minimal tarnish caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage. Simply a not that often encountered TR-period, honorary award that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - non-maker-marked example of a black wound-badge (or: 'Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz') that comes in its period pouch by the unusually seen maker: 'Franz Mänert' This is a truly attractive - and actually in this completely untouched- ie. minty condition scarcely encountered! - non-maker-marked example of a black wound-badge (or: 'Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz') that comes stored in its period (and rarely found!) 'Zellstoff'-based pouch, as was produced the unusually seen maker: 'Franz Mänert', in overall very nice (ie. IMO virtually mint- and/or with certainty never worn-) condition. The badge simply shows no age nor wear and retains all of its original, black-coloured and/or fairly 'shiny' finish: it shows no wear whatsoever. The badge is as stated a non-maker-marked example, that still came packed in its thin-based 'wrapping-paper' as recently found. Of course are the (regular- ie. thin-shaped-) pin and/or catch (-set-up) fully functional and of course present. This piece has never been cleaned nor polished and can be easily graded 'mint-/unissued'. The piece came stored in its period (and most certainly very rarely found!) light-brown-coloured and/or 'Zellstoff'-based- and/or marked pouch (which is in an equally wonderfull and/or undamaged condition and that bears an imprinted makers'-signification on its back that reads: 'Franz Mänert - Gablonz a.N.'. Simply a very nice and desirable, black wound-badge-set that was produced by the: 'Franz Mänert'-company!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - officers'-version of a RAD sleeve-badge (or: 'Dienststellenabzeichen'), bearing the - scarcely seen! - specialist-signification: 'B.S' (= 'Bezirksschule'), in very nice (ie. mint-/unissued-) condition This is a very attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - officers'-version of a RAD sleeve-badge (or: 'Dienststellenabzeichen'), bearing the - scarcely seen! - specialist-signification: 'B.S' (= 'Bezirksschule' or: district school-official), in overall very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued- and/or never tunic-attached-) condition. These badges were worn on the left sleeve of the mustard coloured (officers-type-) RAD-tunics and/or garments. The badge - which shows a red-coloured Roman-styled-, capital 'B' and/or: 'S' - is neatly executed in so-called 'flat-wire'-like 'BeVo'-weave technique and was as such intended for an officer within this RAD-schooling-detachment. The piece was never folded nor trimmed as to be expected and simply cannot be upgraded. The badge is maker-marked and displays the interwoven so-called: 'Ges.Gesch.'-make, as often found on RAD cloth badges- and/or insignia. This badge originates from a smaller collection of rarely seen RAD cloth-insignia I recently acquired for the web-site. It should be noted that all RAD officers'-type badges are comparatively scarcely encountered!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - pair of enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps as was intended for usage by a member who served within the 'Sicherheitsdienst'- (ie. 'SD'-) related so-called: 'Schützmannschaften' (ie. 'Schuma') This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - pair of enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps as was piped in the green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by a member who served within the notorious 'Sicherheitsdienst'- (ie. 'SD'-) related so-called: 'Schützmannschaften' (ie. 'Schuma'), that come in an overall very nice (and IMO only minimally used- ie. worn-) condition. The pointed-styled straps - which measure approximately 13 cms. in length each - have (as to expected) the black-coloured-, woolen-based 'upperdecks' and do show the interwoven, diamond-shaped swastika-signs (as executed in silverish-grey linnen - see pictures). The neat pair comes mounted on its functional tongues and does show the desirable, 'silk-like'-type piping (as always). The pair is IMO only minimally used and does show some minimal age, wear and/or staining. These notorious 'Schützmannschaften' (ie. 'Schuma') were staffed with men entirely coming from the Baltic states and had a very bad reputation. In any case is this a sound opportunity to acquire a scarcely encountered pair of minimally used SD-related shoulderstraps!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - police- (ie. 'Preussische Polizei'-) related-, silver-coloured- (ie. nickle-chrome-based-) belt-buckle, being a non-maker-example The buckle is IMO clearly used and/or worn but still has maintained a fairly shiny, silverish- and/or typical 'nickle-chromed'-finish, without showing any real defaults nor damage (it has IMO never been cleaned nor polished and shows some dust and/or minimal (rust-)staining). The piece is totally void of any makers'-mark-signification (as is more often encountered). These attractive police-related belt-buckles saw only limited usage in the thirthies (ie. during the period of the so-called: 'Weimar Republik'). I deem that I have priced this attractive and with certainty unusually seen 'Polizei'-belt-buckle accordingly!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - SA- (ie. 'Sturmabteilungen'-) related armband (ie. 'Armbinde'), as was intended for members within an: 'SA-Stammabteilung' (or: supplementary reserve-unit) This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - (partly) linnen-based SA- (ie. 'Sturmabteilungen'-) related armband (ie. 'Armbinde'), as was specifically intended for usage by members within an: 'SA-Stammabteilung' (or: supplementary reserve-unit), depicting the separately-applied swastika (executed in felt-like wool) on a white-coloured background and having two silverish-grey-coloured 'border-stripes' in place, in overall nice (albeit clearly used ie. worn-) condition. These neat armbands were specifically intended for SA-members being over 45 years of age and were only authorised for wear for a very short period of time (they were already disbanded in mid-1937). They were worn on all various SA-uniforms. This example on offer here - having a total folded size of 38 cms. - is neatly assembled by making use of various material: it shows some moderate wear and/or usage (some minimal staining is visible and it is also a bit wrinkled). The piece bears a blue-coloured ink-stamp that (IMO) reads: 'Sturmbann der Sturmabteilungen der N.S.D.A.P. - Unterverband Rastatt III' (as can be seen on the pictures). It should be noted that these attractive: 'Armbinden für SA-Stammabteilungen' are not that commonly encountered as their woolen-based counterparts. These neat armbands could also be used by members of the SS: the example on offer here is, however, clearly an example that was intended for an SA- (ie. 'Sturmabteilungen'-) member. Simply an attractive and/or truly rarely encountered SA-related item that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - smaller-sized, multi-coloured and/or neatly enamelled DRK (ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz') visor-cap badge (or: 'Mützenabzeichen für Schirmmütze') - nice (albeit IMO used and/or cap-removed-) condition! This is a very attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - smaller-sized (ie. 3 x 2 cms. sized-), multi-coloured and/or enamelled DRK (ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz') visor-cap badge (or: 'Mützenabzeichen für Schirmmütze') being an example of the early model, in overall very nice (albeit IMO used and/or cap-removed-) condition. The piece is void of any makers-mark ie. logo and comes with both its (functional) prongs still in place. The badge shows a 'Ges.Gesch.'- patent-pending marking on the back. The piece has stunning (and totally undamaged!) enamel and was IMO never cleaned nor polished and is somewhat stained ie. tarnished. Simply a nice and desirable 'DRK'-item: great to complete any 'DRK-Schirmmütze'!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - truly worn- and/or tunic-removed WH (Heeres) armshield entitled: 'Armenien', as was intended for a volunteer ie. NCO who served within the: 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. within the 'Armenisches Legion' The shield on offer here was with certainy worn and was (with certainty carefully!) tunic-removed: it was nicely trimmed and/or folded and still shows the signs of having been moderately worn (see pictures). It is void of any damage and does show some minimal age ie. staining caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage. These - original - 'official'- and/or German-produced, 'Armenien'-arm-shields as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. of German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo') are considered scarce: truly worn examples even more so, something that IMO merits my asking price. Simply a very attractive piece of German-made volunteer-related- cloth-insignia: only the first such truly 'worn- and/or tunic-removed'-example I ever had on offer!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH 'Deutscher Volkssturm' ID-booklet (ie. 'Soldbuch zugleich Personalausweis') as was issued for the: 'Volkssturmsoldat' Josef Dickberger born in 1910, member within the VS-unit: 'Btl.10/51/1/2.Kp.' This is a very attractive - and actually in this variant-pattern scarcely encountered! - WH 'Deutscher Volkssturm' ID-booklet (ie. 'Soldbuch zugleich Personalausweis') as was issued for the: 'Volkssturmsoldat' Josef Dickberger born in 1910, member within the VS-unit: 'Btl.10/51/1/2.Kp.', in overall very nice (ie. not damaged nor denazified and/or fully filled-in-) condition. The typical small-sized booklet (sized only: 9 x 12 cms.) is in an overall very nice and/or complete condition having all its 16 pages and has not been 'damaged' whatsoever. Dickberger was enlisted as late as 23 March 1945: a few days later it was all over. The booklet is void of a photo (it never had one as more often) but shows the regular - albeit minimal - entries and/or ink-stamps (as is shown on the pictures). The booklet - which is of a seldomly seen 'variant-pattern' having an unusually seen orange-brown-coloured cover showing the 'Reichsadler'-symbol - has as stated the regular (ie. minimal) entries as more often encountered. The booklet still shows the (sometimes missing) picture page depicting Adolf Hitler in place (see pictures). Still a nice little, late-war period ID-document that surely represents a piece of history!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Heeres ie. Waffen-SS) 'Kuban'-campaign-shield that comes mounted on its original field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based backing This is a truly attractive - and in this virtually minty condition actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Heeres ie. Waffen-SS) so-called: 'Kuban'-campaign-shield that comes mounted on its original field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based backing, in overall very nice (ie. virtually mint- and/or never tunic-attached-) condition. The - highly detailed and/or pronounced! - shield comes naturally complete with its original metal-based back-plate and still retains all four of its original prongs (being attached to the sides of the shield as more often encountered with original 'Kuban'-campaign-shields - see pictures). The piece still retains its period-applied-, black-coloured- and/or paper-based 'backing-cover' (see pictures). This example has stunning detail and was presumably issued but simply never worn nor tunic-attached. The shield truly retains almost all of its somewhat glossy appearance (showing some darkened tarnish and has IMO never been cleaned: it does show some minimal rust-staining as is visible in the swastika-area - see pictures). It should however be noted that IMO the (original) 'Kuban'-campaign-shields are a bit underestimated in value and rarity. Good - and original! - examples of the 'Kuban'-shield are actually not that easily encountered. I deem that this very attractive example is accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine) 'Marine-Artillerie-Abzeichen', being a detailed, maker- (ie. 'C.E. Juncker - Berlin') marked example, as was executed in multi-coloured zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal This is a truly attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine) 'Marine-Artillerie-Abzeichen' (or coastal-artillery war-badge), being a detailed, maker- (ie. 'C.E. Juncker - Berlin') marked example, as was executed in multi-coloured zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal, in overall nice (albeit moderately used and/or worn-) condition. The neat award retains its typical catch (set-up) and comes naturally mounted on its typical (IMO copper-based- and/or flute-shaped-) pin: it also has a neat 'block-hinge' and/or catch in place as to be expected: these are not altered nor damaged and of course fully functional. The badge - which still has maintained great pronounced detail - has IMO never been cleaned nor polished but has lost some of its period finish, something that has simply been caused by moderate usage and/or decades of storage (the wreath is clearly silver-toned as always with these by 'C.E. Juncker'-produced 'Marine-Artillerie-Abzeichen'). Next to the abovementioned maker-mark the badge shows the design-designation: 'Fec. Otto Placzek - Berlin' on its back (see pictures). In any case is this a fine and 100% genuine example of this scarcely encountered 'Kriegsmarine'-award: I deem that I have priced this by 'C.E. Juncker' produced piece accordingly!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine) 'Marine-Artillerie-Abzeichen', being a detailed, maker- (ie. 'F.L.L. - 43'-) marked example, as was executed in multi-coloured zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal This is a truly attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine) 'Marine-Artillerie-Abzeichen' (or coastal-artillery war-badge), being a detailed, maker- (ie. 'F.L.L.'- or: 'Friedrich Linden - Lüdenscheid'-) marked example, as was executed in multi-coloured zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal, in overall nice (albeit moderately used and/or worn-) condition. The neat award retains its typical catch (set-up) and comes naturally mounted on its typical (IMO steel-based- and/or thin-shaped-) pin: it also has a typical hinge- and/or catch in place as to be expected: these are not altered nor damaged and of course fully functional. The badge - which still has maintained great pronounced detail - has IMO never been cleaned nor polished and does show most of its period (neatly golden-toned-) finish, something that has simply been caused by moderate usage and/or decades of storage. As to be expected is the makers-designation: 'F.L.L.' figured in three circles (as always). In any case is this a fine and 100% genuine example of this scarcely encountered 'Kriegsmarine'-award: I deem that I have priced this by the: 'Friedrich Linden'-produced naval-award accordingly!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine) 'Schnellboot-Kriegsabzeichen des 2. Form', being a detailed, maker- (ie. 'Fec.W.E. Peekhaus'-) marked example, as was executed in multi-coloured zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal This is a an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - example of a WH (Kriegsmarine) so-called: 'Schnellboot-Kriegsabzeichen des 2. Form' (or: E-boat war-badge), being a detailed, maker- (ie. 'Fec.W.E. Peekhaus'-) marked example, as was executed in multi-coloured- ie. neatly finished-, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal, in overall very nice (albeit moderately used and/or worn-) condition. The neat award retains its typical catch (set-up) and comes naturally mounted on its typical (horizontally mounted- and/or flute-shaped-) pin: it also has a typical catch in place as to be expected: all medal-hardware is not altered nor damaged and of course fully functional. The badge - which still has maintained great pronounced detail - has IMO never been cleaned nor polished and does truly shows most of its period (neatly golden- and/or: silver-toned-) finish, something that has simply been caused by moderate usage and/or: decades of storage (see pictures). As to be expected, is the makers-designation: 'Fec.W.E. Peekhaus - Ausf. Schwerin Berlin 68' figured on the back (as always). The small-shaped hook (for easily tunic-attachment) is naturally also present. In any case is this a fine and of course 100% genuine example of this scarcely encountered 'Kriegsmarine'-award: I deem that I have priced this nicely preserved: 'Schnellboot-Kriegsabzeichen des 2. Form' accordingly!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine) officers'-type, hand-embroidered cap-eagle as was executed in golden-toned braid, as was specifically intended for usage on the darker-blue-coloured visor-caps (ie. 'Schirmmützen') This is a very attractive - and/or neatly detailed and actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine) officers'- (ie. eventually also NCO-) type, hand-embroidered cap-eagle as was executed in golden-toned braid, as was specifically intended for usage on the various darker-blue-coloured visor-caps (ie. 'Schirmmützen'), that comes in an overall nice (IMO clearly once cap-attached- and/or carefully cap-removed-) condition. This example - having a 'wingspan' of approximately 7 cms. and still showing some minimal thread-remains with which it was once cap-attached - is nicely hand-embroidered using various tones of (bright and somewhat shiny-) golden-yellow-toned so-called: braid on a dark-blue-coloured (and/or: woolen-based-) background (see pictures). This example was as stated above once cap-attached but is void of any damage nor staining ie. corroded areas - see pictures. The eagle shows a black-coloured-, paper-based 'backing' as more often observed (see pictures). Simply a very attractive example of the 'Extra Klasse'-quality that can naturally easily be attached to any 'Kriegsmarine'-visor-cap or to be simply kept in any eagles'-collection!

Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH-related lapel-pin (ie. ‘Brosche‘), as was intended for a: ‘Wehrmachtsgefolge’, being a larger-sized- and/or neatly maker- (ie. ‘O. Placzeck’-) marked example This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH-related lapel-pin (or: ‘Brosche‘), as was intended for a: ‘Wehrmachtsgefolge’, being a larger-sized- and/or neatly maker- (ie. ‘O. Placzeck - Berlin’-) marked example, in overall very nice (albeit IMO minimally used ie. worn-) condition. The badge is made-out-of bronze-toned metal and shows no damage nor heavy wear whatsoever: it is just a tiny bit dirty caused by regular wear ie. moderate usage. These ‘Wehrmachtsgefolge‘ (or 'WG’) were by very nature not regular armed-forces but auxiliaries to them. In fact, the only true auxiliary forces were the ‘Wehrmachtsgefolge‘ (or armed forces auxiliaries) which were those formations or organisations that were not a part of the armed forces, but which served such an important support role that they were given protection under the Geneva Convention. The piece is neatly maker-marked: ‘O. Placzeck - Berlin’ on the back and comes on its functional pin-/pin-catch set-up. It is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken'-lapel-pin catalogue, wherein it is given the nr. 9502D and an estimated value of 135 Eu. The badge was never cleaned and has a nice and has a fairly darkened age-patina. As stated is this the larger-sized version (having a approx. diameter of 4 cms.). Simply a very nice and honest example which is not that often offered for sale!
Attractive - and actually scarcely observed! - WH (Luftwaffe) breasteagle, being of the 'standard-type', woven model as executed on a fairly 'thin-shaped' greyish-blue coloured linnen-based background - very nice (IMO virtually mint-/unissued!) condition! This is an attractive - and actually scarcely observed! - WH (Luftwaffe) breasteagle, being of the 'standard-type', woven model as executed on a fairly 'thin-shaped' greyish-blue coloured linnen-based background, in overall very nice (IMO virtually mint-/unissued!) condition. These specific breast-eagles were intended for usage on the various LW-tunics (such as the ones executed in herringbone-twill ie. 'Drillich') but also saw usage on the LW 'Fallschirmjäger' jump-smocks (ie. 'Knochensäcke') and/or camouflaged LW 'Felddivisionen' 3/4-shaped jackets. The piece on offer here was surely never used nor worn and simply cannot be upgraded. It shows some minimal fraying on the outer borders (nothing shocking though). Simply a very nice - and most certainly unusually encountered! - piece of LW cloth insignia!
Attractive - and actually scarcely seen! - so-called: 'SS-Verfügungstruppen' (ie. SS-VT) 'skull-type button' as was used on the typical early side-caps, as executed in IMO zinc-based- and/or chromed- metal and neatly maker-marked: 'SS - RzM - 63' This is a very attractive - and and actually fairly scarcely seen! - IMO pre-WWII-period, so-called: 'SS-Verfügungstruppen' (ie. SS-VT) 'skull-type button', as was used on the typical early-type SS-side-caps (ie. 'Schiffchen'), being a model as executed in (IMO) zinc-based- and/or chrome-coloured metal (ie. 'Feinzink') and which is neatly maker-marked: 'SS - RzM - 63', in overall nice, albeit clearly used ie. worn, condition. This example is as stated neatly maker-marked: 'SS - RzM - 63' and is naturally of unquestionable originality. The button is clearly used (showing normal wear and/or aging) but has IMO not been cleaned nor polished. The detail on this piece, however, is still very nice and/or truly pronounced. Simply a nice and unusual piece of SS- (ie. SS-VT)- related cap-insignia!
Attractive - and actually truly rarely encountered! - partly enamelled, DRK (or: 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz') so-called: 'Schwesternkreuz in Silber, 2. Modell mit Kranz für 25 Dienstjahre' This is a truly very attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - example of a partly enamelled, DRK (or: 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz') so-called: 'Schwesternkreuz in Silber, 2. Modell mit Kranz für 25 Dienstjahre' (or: German Red Cross nurses'-cross of the second model with wreath as was awarded for 25 years of loyal service), in overall nice, albeit clearly worn and/or issued-, condition. The neat piece - which is of the so-called second model - measures 5,5 cms. in height and has maintained a fully preserved - and/or fully undamaged! - enamelled surface without showing any damage. The cross shows a nice age-patina and has acquired some blackened tarnish over the years (nothing shocking though) but has never been cleaned nor polished. The piece - which originates from a private household and that was never part of any collection - comes without its metal chain (as is more often the case) but has as stated never been cleaned and is a bit tarnished and/or dirty: it also shows some minimal wear and/or tiny scratches (caused by wear and/or decades of storage). The piece shows a (IMO) makers'-mark on the back: being a simple triangle (as more often seen on these neat and truly scarcely seen DRK-service-awards). Simply a very nice and desirable 'DRK'-item that is not often offered for sale and that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually unsually encountered! - fully matching pair of aluminium-based (ie. early-war period-) WH (Heeres) so-called: 'Panzer-Totenköpfe' (or Pz-skulls) as used on the collar-tabs - very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued!) condition!

The pieces are as stated IMO early- (ie. pre-) war-period examples, having the 'two-pronged set-up', as executed in golden-toned copper. Both skulls retain there fully functional (and IMO never bent- nor folded!) prongs. The - truly highly detailed- and/or pronounced! - pieces show some minimal age (caused by storage only) but have both retained a neat and bright ie. shiny 'age-patina'. It should be noted that these original skull-sets are actually quite hard to encounter. I deem this a very attractive (and matching!) set that is ideally fitted to complete any 'Panzer'- ie. 'Sturmgeschütze' collar-tab-set ie. 'wrap-around' tunic: simply the best such set I ever had on offer!

'molded-style-' and/or variant-pattern-) belt-buckle, being a maker- (ie. 'RzM' - 'M4/46'-) marked example, in overall nice- (ie. moderately used- ie. worn-) condition. The buckle clearly used- and/or worn but nevertheless still retains extraordinary detail as to be expected. The piece has a typical, silver-coloured- and somewhat 'shiny' appearance and has never been cleaned nor polished (it has just acquired some tarnish ie. dirt over the years and shows some minimal scratching caused by uncareful handling or alike). It is clearly marked with the makers'-signification: 'RzM' - 'M4/46' (as can be seen from the pictures). Simply a very attractive 'variant'-style, youth-related belt-buckle which is actually not that commonly encountered in this aluminium-based- ie. 'molded' version!

The piece has a typical, silver-zinc coloured- and somewhat 'dull' appearance and has never been cleaned nor polished (it has just acquired some blackened tarnish ie. dirt over the years and shows some minimal scratching caused by uncareful handling or alike). It is naturally stamped with the makers'-signification: 'RzM' - 'M4/38' (as can be seen from the pictures). Simply a very attractive 'variant'-style, youth-related belt-buckle which is actually not that commonly encountered in this zinc-based- ie. 'molded' version!

Attractive - and actually unusually encountered! - maker- (ie. '26'-) marked example of a silver wound-badge (or: 'Verwundetenabzeichen in Silber') by the maker: 'B.H. Mayer's Kunstprägeanstalt' This is a truly attractive - and actually unusually encountered! - maker- (ie. '26'-) marked example of a silver wound-badge (or: 'Verwundetenabzeichen in Silber') as was produced by the maker: 'B.H. Mayer's Kunstprägeanstalt', in overall nice (ie. most certainly issued and/or used-) condition. The badge just shows minimal wear ie. age but retains most of its original silver-coloured surface. The badge - which is executed in zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink') - is as stated neatly maker-marked with the makers-signification: '26' on the back (see photos), signifying that it was a piece as produced by the: 'B.H. Mayer's Kunstprägeanstalt' company, based in the town of Pforzheim. Of course, are the (regular- ie. thin-shaped-) pin and/or (molded-) catch (-set-up) fully functional and of course present. This piece has never been cleaned nor polished: it shows some minimal dust and/or staining: it shows a neat age-patina. Simply a very nice and desirable, maker-marked- silver wound-badge by the: 'B.H. Mayer's Kunstprägeanstalt': hard to find a more nicely preserved example!
Attractive - and actually very rarely encountered! - WH (Heeres ie. Kriegsmarine) armband (or: 'Dienstarmbinde') as was (IMO) intended for (graduated-) staff-members within one of the army-/naval officers' cadet-schools, in overall very nice condition This is a truly very attractive - and with certainty very rarely encountered! - WH (Heeres ie. Kriegsmarine) armband (or: 'Dienstarmbinde') as was (IMO) intended for (non-graduated?)-) staff-members within one of the army- (ie. naval-) officers' cadet-schools, in overall very nice (ie. minimally used- and/or worn-) condition. The neat armband - which measures 42 x 10 cms. in length - shows the typical, WH eagle-device as woven in black-coloured (!) linnen on a white-/ie. somewhat beige-coloured (and/or stained-) linnen-based background. The eagle - which is period attached to the armband by means of 'zig-zag'-stitching - is neatly executed in 'BeVo'-weave pattern and is only the second such rare example that I have ever encountered. The piece - which has clearly been used and worn and shows some obvious wear, age and/or staining - has furthermore the (typical-) light-blue coloured borders but is not also 'enclosed' within a frame of similar braid. (Note: I might therefore been intended for cadets ie. junior-officers who did not yet completed their training. Simply a very nice - and with certainty rarely seen! - Heeres- (ie. eventually Kriegsmarine-) related 'Armbinde' which is IMO priced according to its desirability and/or unmistaken rarity!
Attractive - and actualy quite rarely encountered! - DRK (ie. German Red Cross) nurses'-badge, as was intended for a: 'Samariterin', being a piece that is neatly 'Ges.Gesch.' marked on its back This is a truly very attractive - and actualy quite rarely encountered! - example of a neatly enamelled, DRK (ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz' or German Red Cross) nurses'-badge, as was intended for - and/or worn by! - a: 'Samariterin' (or qualified nurse), being a piece that is neatly: 'Ges.Gesch.'-marked on its back, in overall very nice condition. The badge is (IMO) made-out of so-called: 'Buntmetall' and has an immaculate, enamelled surface (there are no damages visible whatsoever). The badge bears a clear: 'Ges.Gesch.' patent-pending mark on the back but is void of a makers'-designation (see pictures). The badge is IMO hardly worn and is as stated void of any enamel damage: it has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished and still has a fairly bright-coloured, age-patina. The pin - which has naturally a functional pin/catch set-up - is also figured in the Heering-Hüsken lapel-pin-catalogue, wherein it is given a unique number (5613XI) and an estimated value of 125 Eu. Simply a very attractive - and with certainty rarely encountered! - DRK nurses'-badge: only the third such neat badge I ever had on offer!

The small-sized medal has truly no enamel damage whatsoever and is in a very nice condition overall: it shows the to be expected motto on the back which reads: '16 December 1938 - Adolf Hitler' but is void of any makers'-designation. The silver-toned finish is a tiny bit tarnished but the piece is IMO never cleaned nor polished. The small badge (only: 2 cms. high!) shows great, pronounced detail: just like its bigger 'regular'-sized versions. The miniature comes mounted on its original safety-pin attachment, fitted for easy attaching it to a dress (or even uniform). It came stored in its neat - and scarcely seen! - 6 x 6 cms.-sized etui (which is as stated a bordeaux-red-coloured- and/or semi-leather-based-, so-called generic-styled 'LDO-etui' that shows no symbol on its top). It shows a - fully preserved! - sprayed-, beige-yellow-coloured 'velvet-like' interior and shows the to be expected 'LDO'-signification in the top of its lid (see pictures). The set was recently found at a German flea-market and was never before part of a collection. Simply a nice occasion to acquire neat: 'Ehrenkreuz der Deutschen Mutter in Silber'-miniature that comes stored in its rarely seen generic-styled 'LDO-etui'!

'LDO'-marked-) and/or generic-styled- bordeaux-red-coloured 'LDO-etui', in overall nice (albeit IMO issued ie. minimally used- ie. worn-) condition. The small-sized medal has truly no enamel damage whatsoever and is in a very nice condition overall: it shows the to be expected motto on the back which reads: '16 December 1938 - Adolf Hitler' and also bears the makers'-designation: 'L/58' (signifying that it is a piece that was produced by the maker: 'Rudolf Souval' based in Vienna (Wien). The bronze finish is a tiny bit tarnished but the piece is IMO never cleaned nor polished. The small badge (only: 2 cms. high!) shows great, pronounced detail: just like its bigger 'regular'-sized versions. The miniature comes mounted on its original safety-pin attachment, fitted for easy attaching it to a dress (or even uniform). It came stored in its neat - and scarcely seen! - 6 x 6 cms.-sized etui (which is as stated a bordeaux-red-coloured and/or semi-leatherette, so-called generic-styled 'LDO-etui' that shows no symbol on its top).

Klasse mit Schwerter' (or war-merits cross first-class with swords) that comes stored in its original (ie. 'LDO'-marked-) and/or generic-styled 'LDO-etui', in overall nice (albeit clearly issued ie. used-) condition. The award is - as stated above - an neat - albeit non-maker-marked and/or: 'Bunt- metall' (ie. 'Tombak-') based specimen that was clearly issued and/or moderately worn: it comes on its (fully functional!) pin- ie. catch set-up. The medal has a somewhat dirty ie. darkened age-patina and retains only a tiny part of its shiny, polished-sides (ie. 'hochpolierte Kanten') - see pictures. Some regular age ie. staining is however visible and present, simply caused by decades of storage and/or fair wear. The piece has certainly never been cleaned nor polished and therefore are its details and/or finish still very nice and/or crisp. The etui is in an equally nice condition: it is as stated a black-coloured and/or semi-leatherette, so-called generic-styled 'LDO-etui' that shows no symbol on its top. It shows a - fully preserved! - sprayed-, beige-coloured 'velvet-like' interior and shows the to be expected 'LDO'-signification in the top of its lid (see pictures). The set was recently found at a German flea-market and was never before in a collection.

The small-sized miniature has truly no enamel damage whatsoever and is in a very nice condition overall: it shows the to be expected motto on the back which reads: '16 December 1938 - Adolf Hitler' but is void of a makers'-designation as more often encountered. The bright-silver-toned finish is a tiny bit tarnished but the piece was IMO never cleaned nor polished. The small badge (only: 2 cms. high!) shows great, pronounced detail: just like its bigger 'regular'-sized versions. The miniature comes mounted on its original safety-pin attachment, fitted for easy attaching it to a dress (or even uniform). It came stored in its neat - and truly scarcely seen! - 6 x 6 cms.-sized etui (which is as stated a bordeaux-red-coloured and/or: carton-based-, so-called generic-styled 'LDO-etui' that shows the 'LDO'-symbol ie. logo on its top). The etui shows a - fully preserved - sprayed-, beige-yellow-coloured 'velvet-like' interior and shows a neat blue-inked stamping on its back that reads: 'Mutter-Ehrenkreuz Miniatur L/11' and also shows its period price- and/or (written) inventory-number (see pictures).

Attractive - and extremely rarely encountered! - HJ (ie. 'Hitlerjugend') district-triangle entitled: 'Landjahr', being a piece as executed on black-coloured linnen as intended for usage by the: 'Landjahr-Stammpersonal' This is a very attractive - and actually extremely rarely encountered! - HJ (ie. 'Hitler- jugend') black-coloured- and/or linnen-based so-called: district-triangle (ie. 'Gebiets- dreieck') entitled: 'Landjahr', being a piece as was executed on black-coloured linnen as intended for usage by the: 'Landjahr-Stammpersonal' (or: staff), in overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn- and/or carefully tunic-removed-) condition. The triangle - which has IMO only minimally been used shows some normal age, wear and/or staining. The piece is void of its paper-based so-called: 'RzM'-etiket: I deem that this got lost over the years (see pictures). Of interest is, moreover, the fact that this example still retains it three (period-attached-) hooks for attaching it to a shirt or tunic (see pictures).The purpose of this 'HJ-Landjahr' movement, which was introduced in 1934, was to 'deepen the ties connecting the young people of urban areas with the land and peasentry'. This is truly one of the rarely encountered examples of the 'Gebietsdreiecken'-series and is a piece that comes hardly ever for sale. In any case, a very attractive, 'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') district-triangle that belonged to a HJ-Staffmember (ie. 'Landjahr-Stammpersonal') that is IMO priced according to its rarity and/or desirability!
Attractive - and fairly large-sized- and/or not that easily encountered! - metal-based eagle-device being a maker- (ie. 'RzM - 63'-) marked example as was intended for usage on the early-period-, leather-based- crash-helmets ('Schützhelmen') This is an attractive - and fairly large-sized- and/or with certainty not that easily encountered! - metal-based eagle- ie. helmet-device being a maker- (ie. 'RzM - 63'-) marked example as was intended for usage on the early-period-, leather-based- crash-helmets (ie. 'Schützhelmen') as worn by the various TR-era organisations such as the: SA (ie. 'Sturmabteilungen') and/or N.S.K.K. (or: 'Nationalsocialister Kraftfahr-Korps') to mention a few, in overall nice- (albeit clearly used- and/or helmet-removed-) condition. The piece - having an approximate wingspan of 13 cms. and height of 8,8 cms. - shows a right-facing eagle-device sitting on a swastika-sign and was clearly used- ie. once helmet-attached: all six prongs are clearly used- ie. bent but are with certainty still functional (see pictures). The piece was (IMO) once silver-coloured but comes in a fairly darkened- ie. stained condition: it was, however, not cleaned nor polished and comes as recently found at a German private household. Simply a very attractive - and with certainty unusually encountered! - spare-part that can ideally be used to restore any early-type 'Schützhelm'!
Attractive - and fairly luxuriously executed! - WH (Heeres) officers'-type, hand-embroidered cap-cocarde (ie: 'Kokarde für Schirmmütze') This is an attractive - and/or neatly detailed ie. fairly luxuriously executed! - example of a hand-embroidered WH (Heeres) officers'- (ie. eventually NCO-) type cap-cocarde (ie: 'Kokarde für Schirmmütze'), in overall very nice (albeit used- ie. cap-removed-) condition. This example is nicely hand-embroidered using various kinds of (bright and shiny-) silver-coloured braid on a darker-green-coloured (and/or woolen-based-) background and shows some 'high-lighted'-areas executed in somewhat differently coloured braid (see pictures). This example was IMO hardly used nor cap-attached and is void of any staining ie. corroded areas - see pictures. The cocarde - which has a neat so-called: vented inner-cocarde - shows a black-coloured, paper-based 'backing' as more often observed and is quite thick in execution (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very nice example that can naturally easily be attached to any 'Heeres' officers'-type 'Schirmmütze'!
Attractive - and fairly rarely encountered! - medium-sized, WWII-type, so-called: 'Wassersportflagge', being of the desirable size of: 0,65 x 0,40 cms. and fabricated in linnen-based fabric - overall nice (albeit moderately used-) condition! This is a truly attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - medium-sized, WWII-type, so-called: 'Wassersportflagge', being of the desirable size of: 0,65 x 0,40 cms. and/or as fabricated in fairly roughly-structured and/or linnen-based fabric, in overall nice (albeit moderately used-) condition. These particular flags were introduced on April 6, 1936 and were allowed to be flown as single flag. Only boats, which owners were of German nationality and were members of one of the official institutions for water-sports were allowed to show this flag. It distinguished those boats, which owners were members of one of the National Socialist Sport organizations from those, which were called "wild" boats. As such these attractive flags had nothing to do with the German navy ie. 'Kriegsmarine' although it could be seen being carried during official navy regattas and on-board by KM-owned yachts. The bright-red coloured flag depicts a centered swastika on a white-coloured field with behind this an anchor symbol. This particular example is IMO in moderately used condition: the colours are still very bright and vivid and it shows no real damage nor defaults whatsoever (some tiny holes are however visible). The flag is void of any stamp or marking but still retains both it (period-) attachement cords (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a truly attractive and rarely observed piece: only the first such neat 'Wassersportflagge' I ever had on offer!
Attractive - and fairly scarcely encountered! - 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'- ie. WWII-period pocket-watch ('Dienstuhr') of the make: 'Arsa', having a black-coloured dial-plate and/or engraved back-plate that reads: 'D 13277 H' This is a truly attractive - and/or fairly scarcely encountered! - example of a 'standard-pattern'-, 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'- ie. WWII-period pocket-watch ('Dienstuhr') of the make: 'Arsa', having a black-coloured dial-plate and/or engraved back-plate that reads: 'D 13277 H', in overall very nice and/or fully functional, condition. These pocket-watches - having a standard 15- or 17-jewel movement - were distributed at a very small scale to the various soldiers (ie. NCO and/or officers!) of the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' and were properly entered in both: 'Wehrpass' and/or 'Soldbuch'. They had to be engraved with a 'DH' numbering (which abbreviation stands for: 'Deutsches Heer'). As stated has the piece on offer here a fully undamaged black-coloured dial having a subsidiary 'seconds'-dial at the 6 o'clock position. The piece has a very attractive (and virtually undamaged) casing (which is executed in nickle-silver-based metal): the watch just shows some minimal wear and/or age. As stated above is the piece still fully functional and running. Simply a very nice and truly scarcely seen piece: I deem that I have priced this attractive equiment-piece accordingly!
Attractive - and fairly scarcely encountered! - 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'- ie. WWII-period pocket-watch ('Dienstuhr') of the make: 'Zenith', having a black-coloured dial-plate and/or engraved back-plate that reads: 'D 8405943 H' This is a truly very attractive - and/or fairly scarcely encountered! - example of a 'standard-pattern'-, 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'- ie. WWII-period pocket-watch ('Dienstuhr') of the make: 'Zenith', having a black-coloured dial-plate and/or engraved back-plate that reads: 'D 8405943 H', in overall very nice and/or fully functional, condition.

They had to be engraved with a 'DH' numbering (which abbreviation stands for: 'Deutsches Heer'). As stated has the piece on offer here a fully undamaged black-coloured dial having a subsidiary 'seconds'-dial at the 6 o’clock position. The piece has a very attractive (and virtually undamaged) casing (which is executed in nickle-silver-based metal): the watch just shows some minimal wear and/or age. As stated above is the piece still fully functional and running. Simply a very nice and truly scarcely seen piece: I deem that I have priced this attractive equiment-piece accordingly!
Attractive - and fairly scarcely encountered! - early-type-, lapel-pin (ie. 'brooch') as was intended for a female member within the: 'Deutscher Frauenarbeitsdienst', bearing a unique bearers'-number: '69219' that comes with a period picture of its bearer This is an attractive - and actually fairly scarcely encountered! - example of an early-type, lapel-pin (ie. 'membership-brooch') as was intended for a female member within the: 'Deutscher Frauenarbeitsdienst' (being the predeccesor of the 'RADwJ'), bearing a unique bearers'-number: '69219' and that comes with an accompaniying (period!) picture of its bearer, both pieces in overall very nice- (albeit clearly used ie. worn-) condition. The badge - which has an approximate diameter of 4,5 cms. - shows a swastika surrounded by some cornflowers surrounded by a text on the rim (in hard to read 'Sütterlin'-script) that reads: 'Arbeit für dein Volk - Adelt dich Selbst - Deutscher Frauenarbeitsdienst'. The piece - which is executed in fairly shiny, copper-based and/or golden-toned metal (ie. copper) - is a bit dirty but was most certainly never cleaned ie. polished: it is still a bit dirty ie. dusty. The lapel-pin shows some regular wear and age but has no damage whatsoever. The pin shows - as stated above - a stamped, unique bearers'-number that reads: '69219'. The pin - which has a functional pin-/catch set-up - is also figured in the Heering-Hüsken lapel-pin catalogue, where it is given a unique number (3802A) and given an estimated value of 90 Eu. The example on offer here originates from a German flea-market and was found together with a period (post-card-sized- ie. 14,4 x 10 cms.) picture of the female bearer (showing an N.S.D.A.P.-membership-pin being worn as well as showing the badge on offer being worn). The picture is void of any text nor date but shows an inked photographers-stamp (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a nice and decorative, early-period female-related TR lapel-pin-grouping that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and fairly scarcely encountered! - HJ (ie. 'Hitlerjugend') honorary district-triangle entitled: 'Landjahr' - overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn- and/or IMO tunic-removed-) condition! This is an attractive - and actually fairly scarcely encountered! - HJ (ie. 'Hitlerjugend') typical light-green-coloured and/or linnen-based so-called honorary district-triangle entitled: 'Landjahr', in overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn- and/or tunic-removed-) condition. The triangle - which has IMO only minimally been used shows some normal age, wear and/or staining. It has lost its paper-based so-called: 'RzM'-etiket over the years (some remains are still present and visible-) and has IMO been once glued into an album (or scrapbook): it does show some obvious paper- ie. glue-remains on the back (see pictures). The purpose of this 'HJ-Landjahr' movement, which was introduced in 1934, was to 'deepen the ties connecting the young people of urban areas with the land and peasentry'. Simply an attractive and actually scarcely encountered HJ-related item: hard to find a nicer example for a more interesting price!

This is an attractive - and actually fairly scarcely encountered! - HJ (ie.

Attractive - and fairly scarcely encountered! - RLB (or: 'Reichsluftschutzbund') light-blue coloured, so-called: 'Amtsträger'-armband, depicting the interwoven 'RLB'-logo and showing two white-coloured rank-stripes - overall nice condition! This is an attractive - and fairly scarcely encountered! - RLB (or: 'Reichsluftschutzbund') light-blue coloured, so-called: 'Amtsträger'-armband, depicting the interwoven 'RLB'-logo and showing two white-coloured and additionally added rank-stripes attached, in overall nice (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-) condition. These arrnbands signified that its bearer was an official member of the: 'RLB' and so-called: 'Amtsträger' (these armbands could be worn on the uniforms but also showed usage with the civilian attire). The armband - sized: 40 x 10 cms. - is in a gorgeous condition overall: it is just a tiny bit stained and is a tiny bit 'wrinkled' as is more often encountered. The centre of the armband shows a very detailed interwoven 'RLB'-logo (something that is a clear example of the neat weave-technique as was employed by the 'BeVo'-company). This particular example is void of an interwoven makers-mark (something that I have seen before). Simply a very nice and unusually encountered TR-era armband: only the second such attractive example I ever had on offer!
Attractive - and fairly scarcely encountered! - zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based-version of an: 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or GAB), being a non-maker- marked example as produced by the: 'Steinhauer u. Lück'-company - overall nice condition! This is a very nice - and actually fairly scarcely encountered! - solid, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based-version of an: 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or GAB or general assault badge), being a non-maker- marked example having a desirable so-called: 'Juncker'-style set-up, as was produced by the: 'Steinhauer u. Lück'-company, in overall nice, albeit clearly used ie. worn, condition. This particular example - which is as stated a non-maker-marked example - was produced by the: 'Steinhauer u. Lück'-company based in Lüdenscheid (something that can easily be deducted by studying the typical 'Juncker'-style (hinge- and/or catch set-up as can be seen on the pictures). The badge - which has truly pronounced detaill - comes complete with its functional catch and/or hinge (-set-up) as to be expected and comes on its functional pin. The piece is executed from silverish-coloured zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal and has maintained a nice, albeit somewhat tarnished- (ie. typical zinc-like-) finish. The badge - which originates from a private household - shows some dust and/or dirt but was most certainly never cleaned nor polished. Still a very nice and actually quite desirable GAB which is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and fairly unusually encountered! - Dutch volunteer badge as intended for members within the: 'Germanische Landdienst' - overall nice, albeit moderately used ie. partly damaged ie. incomplete, condition! This is a neat- and fairly rarely encountered! - badge that was worn by all European (incl. the Dutch-) volunteers that worked for a determined period within the so-called: 'Germanische Landdienst', in overall nice, albeit moderately used ie. party damaged ie. incomplete, condition. The badge - which is executed in silver-grey-coloured zinc- (ie.'Feinzink'-) based metal - is in an overall nice and/or uncleaned condition: it comes as found. The badge is somewhat dented and misses its pin (which is regrettably broken-of): the catch set-up is partly present (see photos). The badge has IMO clearly been worn and was never cleaned or polished: it retains a nice age-patina. The piece came from a very old collection of Dutch volunteer items. It is also figured in the 'Heering/Hüsken'-lapel-pin catalogue, wherein it has the unique number: 'K8 05A' and given an estimated value of 500 Eu! Of course did I price it IMO accordingly due to its incomplete and partly damaged ie. incomplete, condition. In any case still a nice and truly rarely seen Dutch volunteer badge that IMO is accordingly priced!
Attractive - and fairly unusually encountered! - Dutch volunteer-related breastbadge as was intended for members within the: 'Germanische Landdienst' being a detailed example that shows a (period-) re-attached pin-/catch set-up This is a neat - and fairly rarely- ie. with certainty unusually encountered! - Dutch volunteer-related breastbadge as was intended for members who served within the: 'Germanische Landdienst', being a detailed example that shows a (period-) re-attached pin-/catch set-up. These attractive breastbadges were worn by all European (incl. the Dutch-) volunteers that worked for a determined period within the so-called: 'Germanische Landdienst'. The badge on offer here - is executed in silverish-grey-coloured zinc- (ie.'Feinzink'-) based metal (as always) and comes in an overall nice- and/or totally uncleaned condition: it comes as recently found. The badge shows a (period-) re-attached pin-/catch set-up which is still functional (see pictures). The badge has IMO clearly been worn and was never cleaned or polished: it retains an attractive, zinc-like age-patina. The piece came from a very old collection of Dutch volunteer items. It is also figured in the 'Heering/Hüsken'-lapel-pin catalogue, wherein it has the unique number: 'K8 05A' and wherein it is given an estimated value of 500 Eu. Of course did I price it IMO accordingly due to its period-repaired condition. In any case still a nice - and truly rarely encountered! - Dutch volunteer-related breastbadge that IMO is accordingly priced!
Attractive - and full length! - WH (Luftwaffe) enlisted-mens-/NCO- type cuff-title, as intended for a member within the: 'Hermann Göring Division' - very nice (ie. IMO minimally used- ie. worn-) condition! This is a truly nice - and/or full length! - example of a WH (Luftwaffe) enlisted-mens-/NCO- type cuff-title, as intended for a member within the: 'Hermann Göring Division', in overall very nice ((ie. IMO minimally used- ie. worn-) condition. The piece was recently found at a private household and was stored as such for decades: it was most certainly kept as a war-souvenir. The cuff-title (being a 'standard'-type enlisted-mens’-/NCO-type) armband (ie. cuff-title) shows the text: 'Hermann Göring' (executed in the thinner-type block-script) as to be expected. This piece is in full-length condition and measures approximately 42 cms. in length: it was IMO clearly worn and has two unfinished ends as more often encountered. The piece is neatly machine-embroidered (in silver-white coloured linnen) on a darker-blue coloured and/or woolen-based background. The piece has clearly been worn and does show two (truly very tiny and IMO non-disturbing) moth-holes (see pictures). Simply an awesome WH (Luftwaffe) cuff-title as intended for a soldier that served within the famous: 'Hermann Göring Division' and that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and fully matching and/or scarcely encountered! - pair of high-ranked officers'-type collar-patches, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - a: 'Wehrmachtsbeamte des höheren Dienstes' This is a truly attractive - and/or fully matching and truly scarcely encountered! - pair of high-ranked officers'-type collar-patches, as was intended for - and/or with certainty worn by - a: 'Wehrmachtsbeamte des höheren Dienstes' (= being an administrative-official having the highest rank-variant ie. belonging to the: 'höheren Dienstes'), in overall nice, albeit moderately worn ie. clearly tunic-removed-, condition. The tabs are beautifully executed in golden-toned (very detailed!) hand-embroidery on a dark-green-coloured- and/or woolen-based background and are neatly piped in the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) woolen-type piping as was prescribed per regulation. The rank could be compared with a general-officer and was held by various WH 'Beamte' ie. army-officials (such as for example: 'Oberintendanturrat', 'Landwirtschaftsrat u. 35 Jahre' etc.). The pieces are beautifully constructed (ie. hand-embroidered) using golden-toned braid: both tabs show superb detail and/or craftmanship but are somewhat tarnished over the years. The tabs are naturally 'backed' with the brownish-coloured 'buckram'-based cloth and still shows the signs of having once been once tunic-attached. Actually are all these higher-ranked 'Beamten'-insignia quite hard to encounter. Simply a very nice pair that is hard to be upgraded!
Attractive - and fully matching! - 4-pieced insignia-set comprising of a pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs as intended for an: 'Oberst der Artillerie-Truppen' - overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition This is a very attractive - and/or fully matching! - 4-pieced insignia-set ie. grouping, comprising of a pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs, all four pieces piped in the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter') coloured branchcolour, as intended for - and/or most certainly worn by! - an: 'Oberst der (Sturm-)Artillerie-Truppen' (or full colonel within the artillery-troops), all four pieces in an overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn- and/or most certainly tunic-removed-) condition. The insignia - which are as stated piped in the neat bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour, were as such intended for an: 'Oberst der (Sturm-)Artillerie-Truppen'. The shoulderboards have silver-greyish- (ie. somewhat sub-dued-) silver-coloured 'upperdecks' and show four, golden-coloured- and/or fully matching, pips attached. The boards - which are sized: 10,2 cms. in length - never had any tongues attached: they were clearly worn as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type (stitching-remains are still present). The pair never had any cyphers ie. numerals attached and is constructed from the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter') coloured (and/or smooth-type-) wool as to be expected. The collar-tab-set - which is also fully matching - is also executed in the smooth-type- and/or dark-green-coloured wool and shows the neat and detailed hand-embroidery as to be expected. The tabs are both noy 'backed' (something that is more often encountered). The set is still very detailed but shows minimal wear and/or age (it has clearly been once tunic-attached). The insignia-grouping was recently found at a private household and was never before in a collection: it belonged to the same 'Oberst der (Sturm-)Artillerie-Truppen', who most certainly wore and/or carefully removed them and stored them as such for decades. Simply an attractive and most certainly desirable, 'high-ranked' WH (Heeres) officers'-type insignia-grouping that belonged to an: 'Oberst der (Sturm-)Artillerie-Truppen'!

This is a very attractive - and/or fully matching! - 4-pieced insignia-set ie. grouping, comprising of a pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs, all four pieces piped in the neat darker-pinkish-red- (ie. 'karmesinroter') branchcolour, as intended for - and/or most certainly worn by! - an: 'Oberst im Generals-Stab' (or full colonel and/or general-staff officer), all four pieces in an overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn- and/or most certainly tunic-removed-) condition. The insignia - which are as stated piped in the neat darker-pinkish-red- (ie. 'karmesinroter'-) coloured branchcolour, were as such intended for an: 'Oberst der Generals-Stab' (or colonel in the general staff). The shoulderboards have silver-greyish- (ie. somewhat sub-dued-) silver-coloured 'upperdecks' and show four, golden-coloured- and/or almost matching, pips attached.

The collar-tab-set - which is also fully matching - is also executed in the smooth-type- and/or dark-green-coloured wool and shows the neat and detailed hand-embroidery as to be expected. The tabs are both 'backed' with yellowish-brown-coloured 'buckram'-like material as is more often encountered. The set is still very detailed but shows minimal wear and/or age (it has clearly been once tunic-attached). The insignia-grouping was recently found at a private household and was never before in a collection: it belonged to the same 'Oberst im Generals-Stab', who most certainly wore and/or carefully removed them and stored them as such for decades.

Attractive - and fully matching! - 4-pieced, WH (LW) insignia-set comprising of a pair of shoulderstraps and dito collar-tabs, as intended for a soldier (ie. NCO) within the: 'Flak-Artillerie-Truppen' - very nice (virtually mint-) condition! This is a very attractive - and/or fully matching! - 4-pieced, WH (Luftwaffe) insignia-set- ie. grouping comprising of a pair of shoulderstraps and dito collar-tabs, both as piped in the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as were intended for usage by a soldier (ie. NCO) within the: 'Flak-Artillerie-Truppen' (or: simple anti-aircraft soldier), all four insignia-pieces in an overall very nice (ie. mint-/unissued-) condition. The neat shoulderstraps - which measure approximately 12,2 cms. in length each - are as stated piped in the neat bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) branchcolour and have the woolen-type piping: they never had any tongues attached and were with certainty intended to be used as a pair of the 'sew-in-type'. The straps - which originate from the left-overs of an old tailor-shop - have the bluish-grey coloured and/or smooth-woolen-based 'upperdecks' and were meant as 'standard-issue'-type pair (see pictures). The straps came together with an equally nice - and also fully matching! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe) collar-patches, as executed in the neat bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured (and/or very smooth- ie. 'felt-like'-type-) wool. Both patches show no wear nor usage and were most certainly never tunic-attached (see pictures). Both tabs show two (identical-) silver-greyish-coloured- and/or aluminium-based gulls/ie. wings period-attached and are backed with the brownish-yellow-coloured 'Buckram'-based material, as is more often encountered. The 4-pieced set shows some minimal age ie. staining but is totally void of any damage and can easily be used to restore any LW 'Fliegerbluse' or: 'Viertaschenrock'. The price is naturally intended for the set comprising of all four matching pieces. Simply a great occasion to acquire an attractive, enlisted-mens'-type LW-insignia-grouping that was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat eines Flakartillerie-Regiments'!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of (IMO mid-war-period-) WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboards, as intended for a: 'Hauptmann eines Infanterie-Regiments' - overall nice (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-) condition! This is an attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of (IMO mid-war-period-) WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboards, piped in the white- (ie. 'weisser') coloured branchcolour, as intended for - and/or most certainly worn by! - a: 'Hauptmann eines Infanterie-Regiments' (or captain within an infantry unit or regiment), in overall nice (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-) condition. Both boards have the white- (ie. 'weisser') coloured branchcolour and are constructed from the 'smooth'-type wool: both have fairly 'sub-dued'- and/or silver-coloured 'upperdecks'. The neat boards - which have four identical and/or golden-toned pips attached denoting the officers'-rank of 'Hauptmann' - come as stored for years: they show some moderate age, wear and/or staining. The boards - which measure: 11,4 cms. in length each - are IMO a 'standard' (IMO mid-war-period-) 'Infanterie'-set: both come mounted on their (typically small-sized-) tongues attached. It should be noted that the 'weisser' branchcolour is most definitely not that easy to encounter. Simply a nice and attractive shoulderboard-pair that belonged to a: 'Hauptmann eines Infanterie-Regiments'!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of bright-pink-piped so-called: 'Motor HJ' (ie.'Hitlerjugend') shoulderstraps, as were intended for a: 'Hitlerjunge' who served within: 'Bann 841' (841 = 'Bann Gross Gerau') This is an attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) piped, so-called: 'Motor HJ' (ie.'Hitlerjugend') shoulderstraps, as were intended for a: 'Hitlerjunge' who served within: 'Bann 841' (841 = 'Bann Gross Gerau'), both pieces in overall nice albeit clearly used ie. worn- and/or carefully shirt-removed-, condition. The straps - which are executed in black-coloured linnen, having the bright-pink embroidered '841'-numerals and/or bright-pink (rayon-based) piping attached - were most certainly worn on a shirt or/tunic and come without tongues as found and issued: the boards measure 11 cms. in length as usually encountered. Both boards show some minimal age ie. staining (and have lost their RzM-etikets over the years), simply caused by decades of storage and/or moderate wear. Both have no braid nor pips attached, denoting the lowest HJ-rank of: 'Hitlerjunge'. In any case a very nice - and actually rarely encountered - pair of 'Motor HJ' shoulderstraps that belonged to a unusually encountered 'HJ-Bann' based in the province (ie. 'Gebiet 13') 'West Hessen-Nassau'!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of IMO early-war period WH (Heeres), 'M36'-type (rounded-style-) 'cyphered', NCO-type shoulderboards, as intended for an: 'Unteroffizier der Panzerjäger-Truppen' - overall nice (albeit worn-) condition! This is a truly attractive - and fully matching! - pair of IMO early-war period, WH (Heeres), 'M36'-type (rounded-style-) 'cyphered', NCO-type shoulderboards, piped in the neat bright-pink- (ie. 'Rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as intended for - and worn by! - an: 'Unteroffizier der Panzerjäger-Truppen' (or junior-NCO within a tank-destroyers unit or regiment), in overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition. The boards - which are both approximately 11,2 cms. sized in length - were most certainly always together and were worn as a pair. Both boards have the 'standard-type' and/or darker-green coloured- and/or smooth woolen-based 'upper-decks' and show the neat bright-pink- (ie. 'Rosaroter'-) coloured and/or woolen-type piping. The boards show the hand-embroidered, Gothic-styled so-called: 'P'-cyphers and show the 'standard'- (ie. early-) type-, silver-coloured NCO-braid attached, denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Unteroffizier'. The shoulderboards - which come on their functional tongues - show equal tarnish and/or moderate wear, staining and/or age. I deem that this pair originates from a tailor-shop and was most certainly privately-purchased pair. By all means an attractive - and not that easily encountered! - shoulderboard-pair that was worn by an: 'Unteroffizier der Panzerjäger-Truppen'!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of IMO early-war period WH (Heeres), 'M36'-type (rounded-style-) 'cyphered', NCO-type shoulderboards, as intended for an: 'Unteroffizier und Mitglied des Kriegsakademie VI' - overall nice condition! This is a truly attractive - and fully matching! - pair of IMO early-war period, WH (Heeres), 'M36'-type (rounded-style-) 'cyphered', NCO-type shoulderboards, piped in the neat bright-orange- (ie. 'Orangeroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as intended for - and worn by! - an: 'Unteroffizier und Mitglied des Kriegsakademie VI' (or junior-NCO and student within the war-academy numbered '6'), in overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn- and/or tunic-removed) condition. The boards - which are both approximately 11,6 cms. sized in length - were most certainly always together and were worn as a pair. Both boards have the 'standard-type' and/or darker-green coloured- and/or smooth woolen-based 'upper-decks' and show the neat bright-orange- (ie. 'Orangeroter'-) coloured and/or woolen-type piping. The boards show the hand-embroidered, Roman-styled so-called: 'VI'- cyphers (ie. numerals) and show the 'standard'- (ie. early- and/or 'zig-zag'-) type-, silver-coloured NCO-braid attached, denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Unteroffizier'. The shoulderboards - which come without tongues and were almost certainly intended for usage on a dress-tunic or: 'Waffenrock' - show equal tarnish and/or moderate wear, staining and/or age (both boards show a tiny and IMO not disturbing moth-damage - see pictures). I deem that this pair originates from a tailor-shop and was most certainly a privately-purchased pair. By all means an attractive - and not that easily encountered! - orange-piped, shoulderboard-pair that was worn by an: 'Unteroffizier und Mitglied des Kriegsakademie VI'!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of IMO early-war period WH (Heeres), 'M36'-type (rounded-style-) 'cyphered', NCO-type shoulderboards, as intended for an: 'Unteroffizier und Mitglied des Kriegsakademie VI' - overall nice condition! This is a truly attractive - and fully matching! - pair of IMO early-war period, WH (Heeres), 'M36'-type (rounded-style-) 'cyphered', NCO-type shoulderboards, piped in the neat bright-orange- (ie. 'Orangeroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as intended for - and worn by! - an: 'Unteroffizier und Mitglied des Kriegsakademie VI' (or junior-NCO and student within the war-academy numbered '6'), in overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn- and/or tunic-removed) condition. The boards - which are both approximately 12,8 cms. sized in length - were most certainly always together and were worn as a pair. Both boards have the 'standard-type' and/or darker-green coloured- and/or smooth woolen-based 'upper-decks' and show the neat bright-orange- (ie. 'Orangeroter'-) coloured and/or woolen-type piping. The boards show the neatly machine-embroidered (done in so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei'), Roman-styled so-called: 'VI'- cyphers (ie. numerals) and show the 'standard'-type-, silver-coloured NCO-braid attached, denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Unteroffizier'. The shoulderboards - which come without tongues and were almost certainly intended for usage on a dress-tunic or: 'Waffenrock' - show equal tarnish and/or moderate wear, staining and/or age. By all means an attractive - and not that easily encountered! - orange-piped, shoulderboard-pair that was worn by an: 'Unteroffizier und Mitglied des Kriegsakademie VI'!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of IMO early-war-period WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type (ie. great-coat type!) shoulderboards, as intended for a: 'Soldat der Kavallerie-Truppen' - overall very nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-), condition! This is a truly attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of IMO early-war-period (ie. 'M36'-type ie. 'rounded'-style-), WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type (IMO great-coat type!) shoulderboards, piped in the desirable golden-yellow- (ie. 'Goldgelber'-) coloured branchcolour, as intended for - and worn by! - a: 'Soldat der Kavallerie-Truppen' (or simply cavalry soldier), in overall very nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-), condition. The - IMO most certainly early-war period type- shoulderboards (which are fairly long-sized and measure each approximately 12,8 cms. in length and are as such almost certainly intended for usage on the greatcoat or: 'Mantel') - show the neat golden-yellow (ie. 'Goldgelber'-) coloured and/or woolen type piping. They have the dark-green coloured 'upperdecks' and come of course mounted on their functional tongues as issued and/worn. It should be noted that these 'simple' 'Kavallerie'-shoulderboards having the darker-green-coloured, woolen 'upperdecks' and/or golden-yellow coloured piping are not that easy to encounter and are quite sought-after. The set was IMO only moderately used: some minimal age, wear and/or slight usage-marks are present and/or visible. The neat pair could of course excellently be used to complete any early-war 'Heeres'-greatcoat (or tunic) or would be a great addition to any shoulderboard-collection. I deem that this neat and scarcely encountered pair is accordingly priced!

The - IMO most certainly early-war period type- shoulderboards (which are fairly long-sized and measure each approximately 12,8 cms. in length and are as such almost certainly intended for usage on the greatcoat or: 'Mantel') - show the neat golden-yellow (ie. 'Goldgelber'-) coloured and/or desirable 'silk-like'-type piping. They have the dark-green coloured 'upperdecks' and come of course mounted on their functional tongues as issued and/worn. It should be noted that these 'simple' 'Kavallerie'-shoulderboards having the darker-green-coloured, woolen 'upperdecks' and/or golden-yellow coloured piping are not that easy to encounter and are quite sought-after.

I deem that this neat and scarcely encountered pair is accordingly priced!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of IMO mid-war-period-, so-called: 'M43'-pattern-, WH (Heeres) EM-type shoulderstraps that comes with its attached 'Übershube'-pair, as was intended for a: 'Soldat des Landesschützen-Batallions 642' The attractive - and/or fully 'text-book'- and/or fully matching enlisted-mens'-type-, shoulderstrap-pair is piped in the desirable white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour and measures approximately 11,7 cms. in length. The straps have the desirable white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured- and/or: woolen-type piping attached (as is more often encountered with these mid-war-period shoulderstrap-pairs) and were intended for usage by a simple soldier who served within the infantry-related: 'Landesschützen-Batallions', numbered: '642' (something that can naturally easily be deducted from the attached 'Übershube'-pair). The shoulderstraps - which originate from a larger cloth- ie. shoulderstrap-collection I recenly acquired - are 'text-book' examples having the field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based- and course-like- 'upperdecks': they are IMO moderately used ie. worn and do show some minimal wear, age and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The straps come naturally mounted on their functional tongues and came with a (matching) pair of (field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based-) so-called: slip-ons (ie. 'Übershuben') attached bearing both the signification: 'L642' (as executed in equally white-coloured so-called: 'Machinenstickerei' done in linnen as can be seen on the pictures). Both the shoulderstraps and/or: 'Übershuben' are in a wonderful- and/or totally undamaged condition and will be hard to be upgraded - see pictures. These desirable 'M43'-pattern-, army-infantry-related-, enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps as piped in the 'weisser'-coloured branchcolour can easily be graded 'fairly scarce'. Simply a very attractive pair that belonged to a: 'Soldat des Landesschützen-Batallions 642'!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of light-blue-piped, 'Flieger HJ' (ie. 'Flieger Hitlerjugend') shoulderboards, as intended for an: 'Obergefolgschaftsführer' within: 'Bann 255' (255 = 'Bann Helmstedt') - nice, albeit used ie. worn, condition! This is a truly attractive - and actually not that often encountered and fully matching! - pair of 'Flieger HJ' (ie. 'Flieger Hitlerjugend') shoulderboards, piped in the light-blue (ie. 'Hellblauer'-) branchcolour, as intended for an: 'Obergefolgschaftsführer' within: 'Bann 255' (255 = 'Bann Helmstedt'), in overall nice, albeit clearly used ie. worn, condition. The 'text-book' pair - executed in black linnen, having light-blue embroidered '255' numerals and light-blue coloured 'rayon-like' piping - comes mounted on its original tongues as found, issued and/or worn: the boards measure 11 cms. in length (as is common for HJ shoulderboards). Both boards have three identical- (aluminium-based and/or silver-toned-) pips and a horizontally mounted 'rank-strip' originally attached (signifying the not that often encountered rank of: 'HJ-Obergefolgschaftsführer'). The boards are clearly used ie. issued and do show some regular wear, age and/or staining. One of the boards still retains its original (paper-based-) 'RzM'-etiket (see pictures). Simply a very attractive (and IMO not that often encountered!) 'Flieger-HJ' shoulderboard-pair that belonged to a 'HJ-Obergefolgschaftsführer' that served within: 'Bann 255' based in the town of Helmstedt in the Niedersachsen province!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboards, as intended for - and/or worn by! - an: 'Oberst im Generals-Stab' - overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition! This is an attractive - and fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboards, as was piped in the neat darker-pinkish-red- (ie. 'karmesinroter') branchcolour, as intended for - and/or worn by! - an: 'Oberst im Generals-Stab' (or full colonel and/or general-staff officer), in overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn- and/or most certainly tunic-removed-) condition. The shoulderboards- which are piped in the neat darker-pinkish-red- (ie. 'karmesinroter'-) coloured branchcolour was as such intended for an: 'Oberst der Generals-Stab' (or colonel in the general staff). The boards have a truly silver-greyish- (ie. sub-dued-) silver-coloured 'upperdecks' and show four, silver-coloured, pips attached (something that was not according to the regulations but was most certainly more often observed). The boards - which are both sized: 11,4 cms. in length and originate from a private household were they were recently found - come mounted on their (typically small-sized-) tongues attached. The boards shows some moderate wear and/or age and show some (truly minimal!) moth-damage (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply an attractive and desirable, 'high-ranked' WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboard-pair that is executed in one of the more scarcely encountered branchcolours of the: 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboards, as intended for a: 'Hauptmann eines Kavallerie-Regiments' - nice (ie. moderately used- ie. tunic-removed-) condition! This is a truly attractive - and fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboards, piped in the desirable golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelber'-) branchcolour, as intended for - and most certainly worn by! - a: 'Hauptmann eines Kavallerie-Regiments' (or captain within a cavalry regiment), in overall nice (ie. moderately used- ie. tunic-removed-) condition. The shoulderboards - which are actually not that easily encountered and can IMO easily be graded 'fairly scarce' - are constructed in the golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelber'-) coloured, smooth-type (ie. 'moleskin'-like-) wool and have a length of approximately 11 cms. each. The set comes without tongues as found and a pair that was used as a sew-in-type pair: the boards were clearly once mounted on a tunic and were carefully tunic-removed. The boards - which show four (identical- and/or neatly golden-toned!) pips attached denoting the officers'-rank of: 'Hauptmann' - have truly 'greyish'-/ie. 'sub-dued' 'upperdecks’ (something that IMO clearly identifies them as WH Heeres-type boards). As most certainly known were these type of shoulderboards also worn on the black-woolen, 'Panzer'-type 'wrap-around' tunics. The set shows some truly minimal age ie. staining caused by years of storage and/or moderate wear. Simply a very nice and desirable shoulderboard-pair that was intended for usage by a: 'Hauptmann eines Kavallerie-Regiments'!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type, 'cyphered' shoulderboards, piped in the bright-red-coloured branchcolour, as intended for an: 'Oberleutnant der Artillerie-Truppen u. Waffenoffizier' - overall very nice condition! This is a truly attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type, 'cyphered' shoulderboards, as piped in the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as intended for - and most certainly worn by! - an: 'Oberleutnant der Artillerie-Truppen u. Waffenoffizier' (or lieutnant first-class and/or artillery weaponry-officers), in overall very nice (albeit minimally used- ie. worn-) condition. The boards - which are executed in the smooth-woolen-based material - have greyish-silver-coloured (ie. somewhat 'sub-dued'-) 'upperdecks' and come without tongues: they were used as a pair of the 'sew-in-type'. The boards shows a neatly golden-coloured, 'crossed-canons'-cypher and/or one single pip attached, denoting that the officer who wore these served as an artillery weaponry-officer ie. lieutnant first-class (or: 'Oberleutnant der Artillerie-Truppen u. Waffenoffizier'). The pieces shows some minimal age and/or wear and show only minimal staining. Simply a very attractive WH (Heeres) officers'-type, 'cyphered' shoulderboard-pair that was intended for usage by an: 'Oberleutnant der Artillerie-Truppen u. Waffenoffizier'!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), early- ie. pre-war period, 'M36'-type (rounded-style-) 'cyphered', enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps, as intended for a: 'Soldat des Geb.Jäg.-Rgts. 100' - overall nice condition! This is an attractive - and fully matching ie. rarely encountered! - pair of WH (Heeres), early- ie. pre-war period, so-called: 'M36'-type (rounded-style-) 'cyphered', enlisted-mens'-type- (and IMO dress-ie. 'Waffenrock'-type-) shoulderstraps, as piped in the darker-green- (ie. grüner-) coloured branchcolour, as intended for a: 'Soldat des Gebirgsjäger-Regiment 100' (or soldier within the mountain-troops regiment numbered '100'), in overall very nice (and IMO never worn- nor tunic-attached-) condition. The shoulderstraps - which are both approximately 12,5 cms. sized in length and are quite broad-sized (ie. having a width of 5,2 cms.) - have the 'standard-type' and/or dark-green coloured woolen-based 'upper-decks' and have as stated above the darker-green- (ie. grüner-) coloured and/or 'rayon'-like piping: I deem that the set was never tunic-attached nor used. Both pieces show the darker-green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured- so-called: '100' numerals (as beautifully executed in hand-embroidery!). Both boards - which come as stated without tongues and were intended to be worn as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type - show as stated only minimal age ie. staining only - see pictures). Simply a truly rarely seen - and early- ie. pre-war-period, 'Heeres' ie. 'Gebirgsjäger'-related and neatly 'cyphered' shoulderboard-set that was intended to be worn on a 'Waffenrock' for a: 'Soldat des Gebirgsjäger-Regiment 100'. I deem that I have priced this attractive, 'cyphered' shoulderstrap-pair according to its comparative rarity and/or desirability!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), IMO early-war period (ie. 'M36'-model- ie. rounded-style-) NCO-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for an: 'Unteroffizier der Heeres Nachrichten-Truppen' This is a truly attractive - and fully matching! – pair of WH (Heeres), IMO early-war period (ie. 'M36'-model and/or rounded-style-) NCO-type shoulderstraps, as was piped in the neat bright-yellow- (ie. 'zitronengelber'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and most certainly worn by! - an: 'Unteroffizier der Heeres Nachrichten-Truppen' (or junior-sergeant who served within an army signals unit ie. regiment), in overall very nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition. The neat straps - which have the 'standard'-pattern, darker-green-coloured- and/or 'smooth-woolen'-based 'upperdecks' and which are of the 'regular-issued'-type - show the neat bright-yellow- (ie. 'zitronengelber'-) coloured- (and/or: woolen-type-) piping attached. The straps which measure approximately 11,2 cms. in length each, come mounted on their functional tongues and are of course in a nice, ie. fully 'text-book' condition, overall. The shoulderstraps show the 'standard'-type-, silver-greyish-coloured NCO-braid attached denoting the NCOs-rank of: 'Unteroffizier'. The straps show - as stated above - only moderate usage ie. wear (some regular age, dust and/or staining is clearly visible and/or present). The pair originates from a private household in Germany and was carefully stored and kept as such for decades: the pair was never before in a collection. (Note: This pair was as stated above never before in collectors'-hands and was found together with the collar-tab-pair I offer under number #39505). In any case is this a superb occasion to acquire a nice and most certainly desirable NCO-type, 'Heeres Nachrichten'-shoulderstrap-pair that was worn by an: 'Unteroffizier der Heeres Nachrichten-Truppen'!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of white-piped, 'Reiter'- (ie. 'Streifendienst'-) HJ (ie. 'Hitlerjugend') shoulderboards, as intended for a: 'Gefolgschaftsführer' within: 'Bann 714' (714 = 'Bann Metz Land') - nice condition!

'Hitlerjugend') shoulderboards, as intended for a: 'Gefolgschaftsführer' within: 'Bann 714' (714 = 'Bann Metz Land'), in overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition. The 'text-book' pair - executed in black linnen, having white-coloured, machine-embroidered '714' numerals and white coloured 'rayon-like' piping - comes without tongues as found, issued and/or worn: the boards measure 11 cms. in length (as is common for HJ shoulderboards). Both boards have three identical- (zinc-based and/or greyish-silver-toned-) pips originally attached (signifying the not that often encountered rank of: 'HJ-Gefolgschaftsführer'). The boards are clearly used ie. issued and do show some regular wear, age and/or staining: the set shows period-attached snaps (used to easily mount them on a shirt or tunic (see pictures). Both boards are void of an 'RzM'-etiket (these have most certainly been lost over the years). Simply a very attractive (and most certainly rarely encountered!) 'Reiter'- (ie. 'Streifendienst'-) HJ shoulderboard-pair that belonged to a 'HJ-Gefolgschaftsführer' that served within: 'Bann 714' based in the town of Metz in occupied France!

Both boards have four non-identical- (zinc-based and/or greyish-silver-toned-) pips and a single silver-stripe each originally attached (signifying the not that often encountered rank of: 'HJ-Oberstammführer'). The boards are clearly used ie. issued and do show some regular wear, age and/or staining: one of the boards still shows its period-attached 'RzM'-etiket (that shows some inventory writing - see pictures). Simply a very attractive (and most certainly rarely encountered!) 'Reiter'- (ie. 'Streifendienst'-) HJ shoulderboard-pair that belonged to a: 'HJ-Oberstammführer' that served within: 'Bann 130' based in the town of Dortmund!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of white-piped, 'Reiter'- (ie. 'Streifendienst'-) HJ (ie.

One of the button-holes on the tongues has been torn (although nothing that shocking). Simply a very attractive (and most certainly rarely encountered!) 'Reiter'- (ie. 'Streifendienst'-) HJ shoulderboard-pair that belonged to a: 'Hitlerjunge' that served within the unusually encountered: 'Bann 260'!

'Hitlerjugend') shoulderstraps, as intended for a: 'Hitlerjunge' within: 'Bann 506' (506 = 'Bann Wien Südwest') - overall nice condition!

The 'text-book' pair - which is executed in black-coloured linnen, having white-coloured, machine-embroidered '257' numerals and/or white-coloured 'rayon-like' piping attached - comes mounted on its functional tongues as found, issued and/or worn: the boards measure 11 cms. in length (as is common for these HJ shoulderstraps). Both boards each have three identical- (IMO zinc-based and/or greyish-silver-toned-) pips originally attached (signifying the not that often encountered rank of: 'HJ-Gefolgschaftsführer'): moreover do they show a bright-red-coloured, linnen-based 'Laschen' (ie. loops) attached and came with a set of silver-coloured-, pebbled-style buttons attached (which are mounted by means of two safety-pins - see pictures). The straps are clearly used ie. issued and do show some regular wear, age and/or staining: they are however void of their 'RzM'-etikets (I deem that these were simply lost ie. washed-out over the years). Simply a very attractive (and most certainly rarely encountered!) 'Reiter'- (ie. 'Streifendienst'-) HJ shoulderstrap-pair that belonged to a: 'Gefolgschaftsführer' that served within: 'Bann 257' based in the town of Alfeld!
Attractive - and fully matching! - WH (Heeres), 'cyphered', officers'-type insignia-set comprising of a pair of shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs, as intended for a: 'Hauptmann des Infanterie-Regiments 2' - overall nice condition! This is an attractive - and/or fully matching! - WH (Heeres), officers'-type insignia-set (ie. 4-pieced grouping) comprising of a pair of shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs, as piped in the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour, as intended for - and most certainly worn by! - a: 'Hauptmann des Infanterie-Regiments 2' (or captain that served within the infantry regiment, numbered: '2'), in overall nice, albeit moderately used ie. worn- and/or clearly tunic-removed-, condition. The shoulderboards are truly 'text-book'-examples of the 'Heeres'-type 'Infanterie'-shoulderboards and have the greyish-silver- (ie. somewhat sub-dued-) 'upperdecks'. The boards show the desirable white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour (and are constructed from the smooth-type linen ie. non-wool). The boards never had any tongues and were clearly used as a pair of the 'sew-in-type': they were clearly once tunic-attached and still show some stitching-remains (see pictures). The boards measure approximately 11 cms. in length each and have four (identical- and neatly golden-toned-) pips and two (also identical- and neatly golden-toned-) '2'-numerals period-attached.(Of additional interest is the fact that all devices were assembled BEFORE the set was assembled!). The pair was most certanly used and/or worn and such and shows moderate age, wear and/or staining. The pair was most certainly once tunic-attached and shows the obvious remains of having been once worn. The boards came with an equally nice and desirable pair of hand-embroidered-, officers-type collar-patches (which are naturally also piped in the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour). The silver-embroidery - which is executed on a dark-green coloured and/or smooth woolen-based background as to be expected - shows some obvious staining but is void of any corrosion or damage (see pictures). The set is neatly 'backed' with buckram-based cloth as is more often encountered and was also with certainty once tunic-attached: one of the tabs still shows a paper-based 'inventory-sticker'. Simply an attractive, officers'-type, 'Infanterie'-insignia-grouping that originated from a 'Hauptmann des Infanterie-Regiments 2' and that can of course easily be used to restore any officers-tunic or that can be stored as such in any insignia-collection!
Attractive - and fully matching! - WH (Heeres), officers'-type insignia-set comprising of a pair of shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs, as intended for a: 'Hauptmann eines (Sturm-)Artillerie-Regiments' - overall nice condition! This is an attractive - and fully matching! - WH (Heeres), officers'-type insignia-set (ie. 4-pieced grouping) comprising of a pair of shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs, as piped in the neat bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as intended for - and most certainly worn by! - a: 'Hauptmann eines (Sturm-)Artillerie-Regiments' (or captain who served within an artillery regiment ie. unit), in overall very nice, albeit moderately used ie. worn- and/or clearly tunic-removed-, condition. The shoulderboards come mounted on their seldomly seen 'Auf der Steg'-set-up ie. mounting and where most likely used on a white-coloured- (or summer-type-) tunic. They are truly 'text-book'-examples of the 'Heeres'-type 'Artillerie'-shoulderboards and have the greyish-silver- (ie. somewhat shiny-) 'upperdecks'. The boards show the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour (and are constructed from the smooth- ie. 'moleskin'-type wool). The boards never had any numerals nor 'cyphers' attached but do show four golden-toned pips attached denoting the officers'-rank of: 'Hauptmann'. The boards measure approximately 11,2 cms. in length each. The pair was most certainly used and/or worn and such and shows moderate age, wear and/or staining. The boards came with an equally nice pair of hand-embroidered-, officers'-type collar-patches (which are naturally also piped in the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour). The silver-embroidery - which is executed on a dark-green coloured and/or smooth woolen-based background as to be expected - shows some truly minimal staining ie. minimal corrosion (see pictures). The set is not 'backed' is more often encountered and was with certainty also once tunic-attached. Simply an attractive - and comparatively scarcely encountered! - officers'-type, '(Sturm-)Artillerie'-insignia-grouping that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and fully matching! - WH (Heeres), officers'-type, 4-pieced insignia-grouping comprising of a pair of 'cyphered' shoulderboards and collar-tabs, as were intended for a: 'Leutnant des Festungs-Pioniere-Battaillons 2' - very nice condition! This is a very nice - and actually scarcely encountered and/or fully matching! - WH (Heeres), officers'-type insignia-set (ie. 4-pieced grouping-) comprising of a pair of shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs, both as piped in the neat black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured branchcolour, as intended for - and most certainly worn by! - a: 'Leutnant des Festungs-Pioniere-Battaillons 2' (or: lieutnant within a specific construction-/fortification, engineers-battalion ie. unit, numbered: '2'), in overall very nice, albeit moderately used ie. worn- and/or clearly tunic-removed-, condition. The boards - which measure approximately 11 cms. in length each - are IMO only moderately used and show some minor wear, age and/or minimal staining. They come without tongues and were a pair that was worn as a 'sew-in'-type pair. The boards show the neat (Gothic-styled-, regular-sized-, golden-toned and/or 'Buntmetall'-based-) so-called: 'FP' 'cyphers' and/or '2' numerals attached. The golden-toned (and/or matching-) devices are executed in 'Buntmetall'-based-metal and show some minimal age ie. tarnish: they have however mainted a neat ie. somewhat 'frosted' appearance. The boards came with an equally nice pair of hand-embroidered-, officers'-type collar-patches (which are naturally also piped in the black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured branchcolour). The silver-embroidery - which is executed on a dark-green coloured and/or truly smooth woolen-based background as to be expected - shows some truly minimal staining but is void of any corrosion (see pictures). The set is not 'backed' as is more often encountered and was with certainty also once tunic-attached. Simply a very nice and most certainly desirable, 'cyphered','Festungspioniere-Bataillon'-related officers'-type insignia-set: only the first such rare and/or matching insignia-grouping I ever had on offer!
Attractive - and IMO early war-period version - of a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz II. Klasse ohne Schwerter' that comes together with its accompanying ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') and/or carton-based pouch by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'Steinhauer u. Lück' This is an attractive - and IMO fairly early-war period- albeit non-maker-marked - example of a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz II. Klasse ohne Schwerter' (ie. war-merits'-cross 2nd class without swords) that comes together with its accompanying (non-confectioned- albeit folded and/or approximately 20 cms. long-sized-) ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') and/or (larger-sized-) carton-based pouch by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'Steinhauer u. Lück', in overall nice- and albeit most certainly issued- albeit never worn-, condition. The medal was never cleaned nor polished and truly shows great pronouned detail. I deem this an early piece that was surely handed-out but never worn: it is IMO executed in bronze-coloured 'Buntmetall'. The ribbon is as stated non-confectioned and was never mounted onto the medal. The piece came stored in its genuine- (and/or complete- and/or larger-sized-) pouch of issue (as was constructed from brownish-coloured-, so-called: 'Zellstoff'-based material as to be expected) that shows a neat printed makers-mark on the back that reads: 'Steinhauer u. Lück - Lüdenscheid'. The pouch is fully undamaged but shows some moderate age- and/or wear (see pictures). Simply a very attractive and IMO early-issued and/or complete 'KvK II. Klasse ohne Schwerter'-medal-set which is hard to be upgraded!
Attractive - and IMO early war-period version - of a: 'Westwall'-medal (ie. 'Deutsches Schutzwall Ehrenzeichen') that comes together with its ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') and/or carton-based pouch by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'August Menze & Sohn' This is a truly attractive - and IMO fairly early-war period- albeit non-maker-marked - example of a: 'Westwall'-medal (ie. 'Deutsches Schutzwall Ehrenzeichen') that comes together with its accompanying (minimally confectioned-, folded and/or approximately 19 cms. long-sized-) ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') and/or carton-based pouch by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'August Menze & Sohn', in overall very nice- and albeit most certainly issued- albeit IMO hardly worn-, condition. The medal was never cleaned nor polished and truly shows great pronouned detail. I deem this an early piece that was surely handed-out and only minimally worn. The ribbon (which is nicely golden-brownish coloured-) is as stated minimally confectioned and was once mounted onto the medal. Strangely enough is it sometimes more difficult to obtain an original piece of ribbon than the medal itself. The piece came stored in its genuine- (and/or complete-) pouch of issue (as was constructed from brownish-coloured-, so-called: 'Zellstoff'-based material as to be expected) that shows a neat printed makers-mark on the back that reads: 'August Menze & Sohn - Wien-VI'. The pouch is fully undamaged but shows some moderate age- and/or wear (see pictures). Of additional interest is moreover the fact that this piece came still packed in its piece of period wrapping-paper (see pictures). Simply a very attractive and IMO early-issued and/or complete 'Westwall'-medal-set which is hard to be upgraded!

The pouch is fully undamaged but shows some moderate age- and/or wear (see pictures). Simply a very attractive and IMO early-issued and/or complete 'Westwall'-medal-set which is hard to be upgraded!
Attractive - and IMO early- ie. mid-war-period example of a: 'SA-Sportabzeichen in Bronze', being a nicely maker- (ie. 'W. Redo'-) marked example The truly attractive - and IMO early- ie. mid-war-period - badge is as stated nicely maker-marked on the back with the makers'-signification: 'W. Redo' as based in the town of Saarlautern and also bears the usually encountered inscription: 'Eigentum d. Obersten SA-Führung' (on the back of the sword as more often). The badge - which comes naturally mounted on its functional pin- (ie. catch-) set-up - only shows some minor wear but was IMO never cleaned nor polished: the original- and/or golden-bronze-toned-finish is fully present and/or neatly preserved (see pictures). The badge is just a tiny bit stained ie. dirty caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage. Simply an attractive and or IMO early- ie. mid-war-period example that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and IMO early-period - 'SA Sportabzeichen in Bronze', being a nicely maker- (ie. 'Berg u. Nolte'-) marked example that bears a unique, engraved- ie. stamped bearers-number that reads: '477483' on the back The attractive - and IMO fairly early-period - badge is as stated nicely maker-marked on the back with the makers'-signification: 'Berg u. Nolte' as based in the town of Lüdenscheid and also bears the usually encountered inscription: 'Eigentum d. SA-Sportabzeichen Hauptstelle'. The badge - which comes naturally mounted on its functional pin- (ie. catch-) set-up - only shows some minor wear but was IMO never cleaned nor polished: the original bronze (and/or fairly 'glossy'- and/or truly chocolate-brown-toned-) finish is mostly present and/or neatly preserved. The badge is just a bit stained ie. dirty caused by moderate wear. Simply an attractive and fairly early example!
Attractive - and IMO fairly early- ie. pre-war-period - example of a luxuriously styled etui as was intended to store a: WH (Luftwaffe) 'Fliegerschützenabzeichen mit Blitzbündel' This is an attractive - and IMO fairly early- ie. pre-war-period - example of a luxuriously styled etui as was intended to store a: WH (Luftwaffe) 'Fliegerschützenabzeichen mit Blitzbündel' (or air-gunners'-badge with lightning bolts), in overall very nice, albeit minimally used ie. worn-, condition. The darker-blue-coloured etui is nicely preserved and retains a (fully preserved) velvet-based lining (that still shows an imprint of the badge it once held). It retains a fully preserved (nicely golden-toned-) text on its top that reads: 'Luftwaffen-Fliegerschützen-Abzeichen' and just shows some minimal age- ie. wear as to be expected. The etui originates from a private German household and was never before in a collection: it was stored as such for decades. Simply a nice and honest etui for a: 'Fliegerschützenabzeichen mit Blitzbündel' that shows only minimal usage and character. It just neats a badge to complete!
Attractive - and IMO fairly early-period - 'SA Sportabzeichen in Bronze', being a nicely maker- (ie. 'Berg u. Nolte'-) marked example that bears a unique, engraved- ie. stamped bearers-number that reads: '848027' on the back The attractive - and IMO fairly early-period - badge is as stated nicely maker-marked on the back with the makers'-signification: 'Berg u. Nolte' as based in the town of Lüdenscheid and also bears the usually encountered inscription: 'Eigentum d. SA-Sportabzeichen Hauptstelle'. The badge - which comes naturally mounted on its functional pin- (ie. catch-) set-up - only shows some minor wear but was IMO never cleaned nor polished: the original bronze (and/or fairly 'glossy'- and/or truly golden-brown-toned-) finish is mostly present and/or neatly preserved. The badge is just a bit stained ie. dirty caused by moderate wear. Simply an attractive and fairly early example!
Attractive - and IMO fairly early-period - 'standard-pattern', black-coloured and/or copper-based WH compass (ie. 'Marschkompass'), which is nicely marked and individually unit-engraved: '5./J.R.21 - 10' - very nice (albeit clearly used-) condition! This is a truly very attractive - and IMO fairly early-period - example of a 'standard-pattern', black-coloured and/or copper-based WH compass (ie. 'Marschkompass' or: 'MK'), which is nicely marker- (ie. 'Busch'-) marked and which is individually numbered: '5203' on its top and that shows a (rarely seen!) unit-designation that reads: '5./J.R.21 - 10', in overall very nice (albeit clearly used ie. worn-) condition. The compass - having a 'regular-weight' ie. copper-based top - is fully functional and retains a fair bit of its (fairly glossy!) black-painted colour and is marked with the engraved unit-designation and/or serial-number as mentioned above. The compass shows as stated fair wear and/or age but is naturally still fully functional. This 'high-quality' piece was most probably issued in the the early war-years but was most certainly used throughout the WWII. I deem that the additionally added unit-designation: '5./J.R.21 - 10' is of particular interest: it does IMO signify that this piece was numbered: '10' and belonged to the 'standard equipment' of the 5th company within the 'Infanterie-Regiment 21'. Simply a very attractive and desirable example of this 'standard-pattern' WH-'Marschkompass': just the first such example having an engraved unit designation I ever had on offer!
Attractive - and IMO later-war-period - zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based version of a WH (Luftwaffe) 'Fallschirmschützen-Abzeichen', being a neatly maker- (ie. 'A'-) marked example as was produced by the: 'Assmann u. Söhne'-company The neat badge - which has IMO clearly been worn and/or issued - comes naturally mounted on its functional pin and/or original (ie. fully unaltered-) catch (ie. catch-set-up). This example has a nicely golden-coloured, 'loose eagle'-device attached (as always) and shows very nice and/or pronounced detail overall. The badge (ie. the wreath) has a superb age-patina and retains most of its original (somewhat 'bluish-grey'-coloured-) finish: it is just a bit dirty but has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished. As stated above is the piece nicely maker-marked on its back with the capital 'A': being the makers'-mark of the desirable: 'Assmann u. Söhne'-company based in the town of Lüdenscheid. The piece originates from a private household in Germany and was never before in a collection. It should be noted that these 'Feinzink'-based FS-Abzeichen as produced by the 'Assmann u. Söhne'-company can easily be graded 'fairly scarce'!
Attractive - and IMO moderately used! - 'Panzerkampfabzeichen in Bronze' (or bronze panzer assault badge or PAB), being a neat zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) version as procuced by the: 'Steinhauer u.

The badge on offer here concerns an (IMO mid-war-period-) zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based specimen that retains a fair bit of its bronze-coloured finish: the piece has a somewhat 'matted' appearance, showing superb detail and/or finish as to be expected. The badge has IMO never been cleaned nor polished (and is still also a tiny bit dirty ie. stained- ie. tarnished as mentioned above). As stated is the piece a non maker-marked example that shows the various characteristics - such as for example the typically-shaped pin-set-up and/or modelled catch - as only seen on PABs as produced by the: 'Steinhauer u. Lück' (ie. 'S.& L.') company based in the town of Lüdenscheid: it deals with a so-called: 'solid zinc, heavy weight piece having the so called "classic Juncker" reverse hardware' (as is uniquely numbered with the reference-number: '1.4.4.' according to the excellent reference-work entitled: 'The Panzer-Assault badge of WWII' by my Belgian friend Philippe de Bock). The neat piece - which is very pronounced and has truly great pronounced detail - naturally shows all the details as to be expected for a badge by this particular maker. It was found as such at a German flea-market and was never before in a collection. It was simply never cleaned nor polished. Simply a nice and honest bronze-class PAB by the 'Steinhauer u. Lück'-company in an attractive and only minimally used and/or worn condition!

Simply a nice and honest bronze-class PAB by the 'Steinhauer u. Lück'-company in a moderately used and/or worn condition: I deem that I have priced this example accordingly!

The badge has IMO never been cleaned nor polished (and is still also a tiny bit dirty ie. stained- ie. tarnished as mentioned above). As stated is the piece a neat maker-marked example (showing the tiny 'W'-sign on the left-side of the block-hinge) that shows the various characteristics - such as for example the typically-shaped pin-set-up and/or modelled hinge - as only seen on GABs as produced by the: 'Karl Wurster KG'-company based in the town of Lüdenscheid: this pattern is also known as the: 'Narrow Block Hinge Variant' and has been given the identifying number: '1.17.2'.

The magnetic cross has a truly nicely preserved age-patina and retains great, pronounced detail. The cross has never been cleaned and shows normal signs of having been (IMO) only minimally worn: it shows some regular 'tarnish' and has a nicely preserved age-patina. The black painted inner-core retains almost all of its (fairly 'shiny') black-coloured paint: its shows no real defaults nor damage whatsoever (some truly minimal paint-loss chips are visible on the swastika-area although nothing shocking). The (flute-shaped-) pin- and/or typical catch (-set-up) are naturally present and are fully functional. The cross has IMO never been cleaned nor polished (and is as stated just a tiny bit dusty and/or dirty). The black-coloured, simulated leather etui is in an equally very nice condition and only shows minimal ie. regular wear: the (white-coloured) and/or velvet-based inner-mounting just shows some minor staining and/or wear (and bears a clear imprint of the cross on the top of the lid). The cross is in all respects a typical by the 'Paul Meybauer'-company produced piece and is - as stated above - neatly marked '26' on the back of the pin. The etui shows a fully undamaged IC-symbol on its top and is 'LDO'-marked in the top of lid and additionally bears a blue-coloured 'L/18'-stamp as more often. Simply a very nice and desirable (double MM!) IC1st class-set by the 'Paul Meybauer'-company that was recently found at a private household and that was never before in a collection: I deem that I have priced this attractive set accordingly!

Attractive - and IMO privately purchased! - WH (Luftwaffe) officers'-/ ie. NCO-type, hand-embroidered breast-eagle, being an example showing extraordinary detail - overall very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued-), condition! This is an attractive - and IMO most certainly privately purchased! - WH (Luftwaffe) officers'-/ ie. NCO-type, hand-embroidered breast-eagle, being an example showing extraordinary detail, in overall very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued-), condition. This particular example - having an approximate 'wingspan' of approximately 9,5 cms. - is very nicely hand-embroidered using white-coloured thread on a greyish-blue coloured ie. typical 'Luftwaffe' (and/or woolen-based-) background. The piece - which truly shows extraordinary detail and/or craftmenship! - is void of any damage and has maintained a very pronounced appearance. It was IMO most certainly a privately purchased item: it shows a black-coloured, thin-shaped- paper-based 'backing' as more often observed. The piece on offer here originated from a private household in Germany and was found together with the equally nicely preserved WH (Luftwaffe) 'Fallschirmschützenabzeichen in Stoff' (or paratrooper jump-badge in cloth) which I offer under number 32957: both pieces were stored as such for decades and were never before part of any collection. Simply a very nice example that can naturally easily be attached to any 'Luftwaffe' officers'-tunic or to be kept in any eagles'-collection!
Attractive - and IMO privately purchased! - WH (Luftwaffe) officers'-type, hand-embroidered breast-eagle, being an example showing extraordinary detail - overall nice, albeit used ie. tunic-removed, condition! This is an attractive - and IMO most certainly privately purchased! - WH (Luftwaffe) officers'-type, hand-embroidered breast-eagle, being an example showing extraordinary detail, in overall nice, albeit moderately used ie. IMO carefully tunic-removed, condition. This particular example - having an approximate 'wingspan' of approximately 9,5 cms. - is very nicely hand-embroidered using various kinds of silver- (and/or black-) coloured braid on a greyish-blue coloured ie. typical 'Luftwaffe' (and/or woolen-based-) background. The piece - which truly shows extraordinary detail and/or craftmenship! - is void of any corrosion and has maintained a fairly 'shiny' appearance. It was IMO most certainly a privately purchased item: it shows a black-coloured, thin-shaped- paper-based 'backing' as more often observed. Simply a very nice example that can naturally easily be attached to any 'Luftwaffe' officers'-tunic or to be kept in any eagles'-collection!
Attractive - and in this minty condition scarcely encountered! - fully matching pair of (later-war period-) WH (Heeres-, Luftwaffe, Waffen-SS etc.), greenish- coloured gaithers ie. 'Gamaschen' as was intended for usage in combination with the low-boots This is a truly attractive - and in this virtually minty condition actually scarcely encountered! - fully matching pair of (later-war period-) WH (Heeres-, Luftwaffe, Waffen-SS etc.), greenish- coloured gaithers ie. 'Gamaschen' as was intended for usage in combination with the low-boots (ie. Halbschuhe), that comes in a very nice (ie. virtually mint- ie. unissued-), condition. The pair shows a date ie. makers'-signification but this is hard to decypher (as can be seen on the pictures). The gaithers are made of 'thicker'-shaped- and/or: greenish coloured linnen and have all (fully functional), natural-coloured leather straps in place. These 'Gamaschen' were worn together with the low-boots and as such were a great contribution to combat the - at the end of the war - leather scarcity. The set shows no damage nor wear whatsoever (the black-coloured metal and IMO zinc-based 'roller-buckles' show NO rust-staining and can of course still easily serve to complete any mannequin. It should be noted that such an almost mint- and/or matching pair is not that easily encountered. A truly attractive: almost impossible to upgrade these!

Attractive - and matching! - pair of IMO early- ie. mid-war-period WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type (ie. great-coat type-!) shoulderstraps, as intended for a: 'Soldat der Kavallerie-Truppen' - overall very nice (albeit minimally used ie. worn-), condition! This is a truly attractive - and/or matching! - pair of IMO early- ie. mid-war-period (ie. 'M43'-type ie. 'rounded'-style-), WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type- (IMO even great-coat type-!) shoulderstraps, as piped in the desirable golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour, as intended for - and worn by! - a: 'Soldat der Kavallerie-Truppen' (or simply cavalry soldier), in overall very nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-), condition. The - IMO most certainly early- ie. mid-war period type- shoulderstraps (which are fairly long-sized and measure each approximately 13,2 cms. in length each and were as such almost certainly intended for usage on the greatcoat or: 'Mantel') - show the neat golden-yellow (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured and/or desirable 'silk-like'-type piping attached. The straps have the field-grey coloured 'upperdecks' and come of course mounted on their functional tongues as issued and/or worn. It should be noted that these 'simple' 'Kavallerie'-shoulderboards having the field-coloured, woolen 'upperdecks' and/or golden-yellow coloured piping are not that easy to encounter and are quite sought-after. The set was IMO only minimally used: some minimal age, wear and/or slight usage-marks are present and/or visible. The neat pair could of course excellently be used to complete any early-war 'Heeres'-greatcoat (or tunic) or would be a great addition to any shoulderstrap-collection. I deem that this neat and scarcely encountered pair is accordingly priced!
Attractive - and matching! - set comprising of a WH (KM) 'Blockadebrecher-Kriegsabzeichen' being a maker- (ie. 'Schwerin'-) marked example that comes together with its accompanying 'Halbminiatur', both pieces as executed in multi-coloured 'Feinzink' The - truly quality-produced albeit IMO later-war-period produced - award-set holds both the regular- and/or half-sized version of the: 'Blockadebrecher-Kriegsabzeichen' (or blocade-runner war-badge). Both pieces are IMO only minimally worn and were always kept as a set (they originated from a German household where they were recently found together: they were never part of any collection). Both attractive 'Kriegsmarine'-related awards retain great pronounced detail and retain most of their 'off-factory' bluish-coloured finish and details as executed in silver-finish (see pictures): the set has IMO never been cleaned nor polished (but was, nevertheless, IMO worn). The regular-sized badge (which is of the typical zinc-based-, 'flat-back'-pattern-) shows a clearly present makers'-marking (that reads: 'Fec. Otto Placzek Berlin - Ausf. Schwerin - Berlin') whereas the neat and/or: 26 mm.-sized: 'Halbminiatur' is void of any makers'-signification (as is more often the case). The regular-sized award comes naturally mounted on its (fully functional) pin- and/or pin-catch set-up whereas the miniature is mounted on its full-sized pin as to be expected. It should be noted that these (matching!) quality-produced- and/or: 'Feinzink'-based 'Blockadebrecher-Kriegsabzeichen'-sets can easily be graded 'scarce' and are not that often offered for sale: I deem that I have priced this great set accordingly!
Attractive - and most certainly not often encountered! - metal-based- ie. iron-cast, commemorative WH (Heeres) 'Artillerie'-related wall-plaque, bearing an engraved text: 'Dem scheidenden Kameraden! - Die 1./A.R.44' - overall nice condition! This is a truly attractive - and most certainly not often encountered! - metal-based- (ie. iron-cast), silver-coloured, commemorative WH (Heeres) 'Artillerie'-related wall-plaque, bearing an engraved text: 'Dem scheidenden Kameraden! - Die 1./A.R.44', in overall nice condition. The neat item depicting a Wehrmacht soldier with steel-helmet (with swastika-decal!) and his horse. The neat plaque - which is sized 17,5 x 22 cms. is period-mounted on a black-coloured and wooden-based frame - has truly nice, pronounced, detail and retains a nice, somewhat darkened, age-patina: it was probably cleaned ie. polished over the years. The plaque was never before in a collection and originated from a private household in German, where it most certainly hung and was stored for decades. Simply a very nice and most certainly not that often encountered 'souvenir-item' that belonged to a member that once served within the: 'Artillerie-Regiment 44'!
Attractive - and most certainly not that easily encountered! - N.S.D.A.P.-related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie'), as was issued to commemorate the: 'Heimatwoche - Spandau' held from 19 to 26 November 1933 - overall very nice condition! This is a truly attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - N.S.D.A.P.-related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie'), that was issued to commemorate a specific party-rally ie. weeks’gathering named the: 'Heimatwoche - Spandau' held from 19 to 26 November 1933, in overall very nice (albeit issued ie. moderately worn-) condition. The very detailed and/or pronounced badge - which is executed in bronzed-toned metal (IMO tin ie. copper-) - truly shows extraordinary detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished. The (unmarked-) crest-shaped piece depicts a tower (Spandau ie. Berlin!) with above that a swastika-sign and below the text: 'Heimatwoche 19. 26 Nov. 1933 - Spandau' and comes on its (functional) pin-/catch set-up. Simply a very nice - and most certainly not that often encountered and/or early-period - N.S.D.A.P.-related 'tinnie'!
Attractive - and most certainly not that easily encountered! - N.S.D.A.P.-related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie'), as was issued to commemorate the: 'Parteitag 1929', being a neatly maker- (ie. 'Hoffstätter'-) marked example - overall nice condition! This is a truly attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - N.S.D.A.P.-related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie'), that was issued to commemorate the: 'N.S.D.A.P. Parteitag 1929' held in the town of Nürnberg, being a neatly maker- (ie. 'F. Hoffstätter - Berlin'-) marked example, in overall very nice (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-) condition. The very detailed and/or pronounced badge - which is executed in bronzed-toned metal (IMO tin ie. copper-) - truly shows extraordinary detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished. The (as stated neatly maker- and/or 'Ges.Gesch.'-marked-) crest-shaped piece depicts a steelhelmet with above a resting eagle with swastika with above that the text: 'Nürnberg 1914 - 1919 - Parteitag 1929' and comes on its (functional) pin-/catch set-up. Simply a very nice - and most certainly not that often encountered and/or very early-period - N.S.D.A.P.-related 'tinnie'. I deem that I have priced this rarely seen example according to its desirability and/or nicely preserved condition!
Attractive - and most certainly not that often encountered! - smaller-sized-, period-, 'NS-Reichskriegerbund'-related publication entitled: 'Der NS-Reichskriegerbund - Was er ist und was er will' This is a neat - and most certainly not that often encountered! - smaller-sized-, period-, 'NS-Reichskriegerbund'-related publication entitled: 'Der NS-Reichskriegerbund - Was er ist und was er will', in overall very nice (ie. fully complete-) condition. The small-sized- (and/or 'soft-covered'-) booklet (which is only sized: 13,5 x 9 cms.) contains 25 pages with detailed, topic-related information and is furthermore nicely illustrated by means of detailed drawings and/or illustrations (see pictures). The booklet was surely issued but IMO never really used: it shows some minimal aging and/or staining caused by having been just stored as such for decades. Simply a very atttractive - and most certainly not that often encountered! - 'NS-Reichskriegerbund'-related publication that provides a clear insight into this lesser-known TR-organisation (giving for example background-information on lesser known uniforms and insignia!): only the first such neat little item I ever had on offer!
Attractive - and most certainly scarcely encountered! - Marine HJ- (ie. 'Hitlerjugend'-) related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie'), as was issued to commemorate the: '2. Grosswasserfahrt der Westfälischen MHJ' held in 1939 - nice condition! This is a truly attractive - and with certainty not that easily ie. scarcely encountered! - Marine HJ- (ie. 'Hitlerjugend'-) related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie'), as was issued to commemorate the: '2. Grosswasserfahrt der Westfälischen MHJ' held respectively in the towns of Passau, Wien and/or Budapest in the year 1939, being a neatly maker- (ie. 'Deschler'-) marked example, in overall very nice (albeit issued ie. moderately worn-) condition. The very detailed and/or truly pronounced badge - which is executed in silver-toned metal (IMO zinc-) - truly shows extraordinary detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished. The neatly maker-marked piece by the company: 'Deschler u. Söhne - München' shows a detailed portrait of the: 'Führer u. Reichskanzler' Adolf Hitler, surrounded with the text: '2. Grosswasserfahrt der Westfälischen MHJ - 19 Passau - Wien - Budapest 39' and comes naturally mounted on its (functional) pin-/catch set-up. Simply a very nice - and most certainly not that often encountered! - youth-related ie. Marine HJ- (ie. 'Hitlerjugend'-) 'tinnie'!
Attractive - and most certainly unusally encountered! - silk-based, WWII-period-, 'souvenir-handkerchief' bearing various (colourful- and/or printed-) illustrations regarding the Finnish-/Russian winter-war, 1939-1941 This is a nice and unsual 'souvenir'-item: an (IMO) genuine silk-based and/or WWII-period-, 'souvenir-handkerchief' bearing various (colourful- and/or printed-) illustrations regarding the Finnish-/Russian winter-war, 1939-1941, in overall nice condition. The neat piece - which is aproximately 20 x 20 cms. sized and that is only printed on one side - is just a tiny bit wrinkled and/or minimally stained. These war-souvenirs - which were most certainly locally produced - were intended to serve as a personal souvenir for the Finish- (ie. presumably also German-) troops serving in that particular battle-area. It originated from a private household in Germany. I deem that this item was specifically sold in order to be properly framed. Simply a nice and desirable personal-equipment- ie. souvenir-piece!
Attractive - and most certainly unusually encountered! - 3-pieced WH (Heeres) 'Gebirgsjäger'- (ie. 'Pioniere'-) insignia-grouping, comprising of an: 'Errinerung-Medaille des Geb.Jäg.Pi.Btl. 54' plus two 'Edelweiss' cap-insignia - nice condition!

The grouping was recently found as such and was never before part of a collection: it was stored as such by the veteran who wore these. The neat zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based medal (having an approximate diameter of 3,6 cms.) has nice and/or pronounced detail and has (IMO) never been cleaned nor polished: it comes as found as stored for decades. The piece is accompanied by two so-called: 'Edelweiss' (visor-) cap-insignia which are both unmarked and are both of a multi-pieced construction. The smaller-sized insignia-piece is actually quite scarcely encountered and was intended to be worn on a visor-cap (ie. 'Schirmmütze'): it retains both its copper-based prongs and is as such fully functional. Simply a very attractive 3-pieced WH (Heeres) 'Gebirgsjäger'- (ie. 'Pioniere'-) insignia-grouping that is most certainly not often offered for sale!

Attractive - and most certainly unusually encountered! - commemorative WH (Luftwaffe)-related item: an 'Errinnerungsmappe des Luftgau VII - Weinachten 1941', holding 12 nicely executed, art-reproductions - overall nice (and/or complete-) condition! This is an attractive - and most certainly unusually encountered! - commemorative WH (Luftwaffe)-related item, being a so-called: 'Errinnerungsmappe des Luftgau VII - Weinachten 1941', holding 12 nicely executed, art-reproductions ie. paintings, in overal nice (and/or fully complete-) condition. This neat item was issued to commorate the Christmas-celebrations of 1941 (ie. 'Kriegsweihnachten 1941') within the various troops as belonging to the: 'Luftgau VII'. The 12 reproductions come stored in their period, greyish-coloured and/or carton-based folder (which measures: 30 x 22 cms. and that shows its contents on the back: the 12 reproductions are fully described and their respective artists are mentioned - see pictures). The piece shows some regular age ie. wear but all 12 reproductions are in an immaculate and/or undamaged condition (some minimal staining and/or age is however noticable). The various - partly colourfull! - reproductions are naturally ideal to be framed. Simply a nice and unusually encountered 'Luftwaffe'-related item!
Attractive - and most certainly unusually encountered! - period 'war-souvenir', made-out of a single WH (Heeres) NCO-type, 'cyphered' shoulderboard, a 'Sanitäter' trade-/specialist badge and a 'Feld-/Bandspange' - very nice condition! This is a truly very attractive - and most certainly unusually encountered! - period-compiled 'war-souvenir', made-out of a single WH (Heeres) NCO-type, 'cyphered' shoulderboard (that once belonged to a: 'Feldwebel des 10. Regiment-Sanitätstruppen'), a neat 'Sanitäter' trade-/specialist badge (having a silver-border attached) and a so-called standard-type, one-pieced: 'Feld-/Bandspange' as intended for a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz II.

The shoulderboard - which is regular sized and that has a dark-green coloured 'upperdeck' - measures approximately 12 cms. in length. The board has the neat, darker-blue- (ie. 'Blau'-) coloured, branchcolour (as executed in the neat 'silk-like'-type piping) and shows the 'standard-type' WH 'Heeres'-type NCO-braid attached: furthermore does the set shows a single aluminium-based pip attached and shows also two metal-based (and/or blue-coloured!) '1' and/or '0' numerals, denoting that the soldier who wore it was a: 'Feldwebel des 10. Regiment-Sanitätstruppen'. The board is void of an 'Aesculap' cypher (something that was not unusual and that was most certainly more often observed). The board comes naturally on its functional tongue and is fully 'text-book' in type and/or execution. The tongue shows a neat hand-embroidered version of a WH (Heeres) so-called trade- and/or special career insignia, as intended for a: 'Geprüfter Sanitäter' (or qualified medical orderly) attached. This patch shows an attached (silver-coloured-) cord (ie. 'Kordel') attached, signifying the 'Geprüter'-status. Finally does the tongue shows also a one-pieced: 'Feld-/Bandspange' (with golden-toned swords-device!) as intended for a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz II. Klasse mit Schwerter' (or war-merits-cross second class with swords). All three insignia are IMO only minimally (or not at all!) used and are just a tiny bit dirty ie. stained caused by regular wear and or decades of proper storage. Simply a very nice - and most certainly not often encountered! - period 'war-souvenir', as was most certainly compiled by an NCO and/or: 'Heeres-Sanitäter'!
Attractive - and most certainly unusually encountered! - WH (Luftwaffe) steel-based and/or neatly silvered eagle-device, as was (IMO) intended for usage on some sort of award-plaque - overall nice condition! This is an attractive - and most certainly unusually encountered! - fairly large-sized, WH (Luftwaffe) steel-based and/or neatly silvered eagle-device, as was (IMO) intended for usage on some sort of award-plaque, in overall nice condition. The nicely detailed - and as mentioned above fairly large-sized - piece has an approximate 'wingspan' of 13,5 cms. and was IMO once attached to some sort of plaque or alike (it shows two tiny holes on the back IMO intended to properly mount it - see pictures). The piece - which is quite heavy - has a typical, truly silverish appearance and retains a nice, somewhat darkened age-patina (it has never been cleaned nor polished and comes as recently found at a private Household in Germany). Simply a nicely detailed, WH (Luftwaffe) steel-based and/or neatly silvered, eagle-device that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and neatly maker- (ie. '125'-) marked! - Iron Cross 2nd Class (or: 'Eisernes Kreuz II.Klasse') as was produced by the: 'Eugen Gauss'-company - overall nice (albeit moderately used-/ie. worn-) condition! This is an attractive - and neatly maker- (ie. '125'-) marked! - Iron Cross 2nd Class (or: 'Eisernes Kreuz II.Klasse') as was produced by the: 'Eugen Gauss'-company, in overall nice (albeit moderately used-/ie. worn-) condition. The cross is as stated neatly maker- (ie. '125'-) marked in the ring and is as such a typical example as was produced by the: 'Eugen Gauss'-company based in the town of Pforzheim. The cross was most certainly never cleaned and has a nice and/or truly minimally tarnished age-patina: it is almost void of paint-damage (just a tiny chipped-area on the swastika is visible) and retains a very nice, black-finished (ie. fairly 'matted'-) black-coloured 'core'. The cross - which has fine and crisp detail - has a nice and minimally used appearance overall: it just shows some minimal dirt and/or dust asacquired over the years. The cross came with its (confectioned ie. shortened- and/or 15 cms. long-sized-) piece of ribbon (ie. 'Band- abschnitt'). The cross was recently found as such at a private household and was never before in collectors-hands. Simply a very nice example of a neatly maker- (ie. '125'-) marked: 'EK II.Klasse' that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and never before encountered! - example of a 'variant-pattern' HJ (or 'Hitlerjugend') silver-coloured- (ie. aluminium-based-) belt-buckle, which is nicely: 'RzM' - 'M4/39' marked and having an unusual 'catch-set-up' - overall nice condition! This is a very nice - and actually never before encountered! - example of a 'variant-pattern' HJ (or 'Hitlerjugend') silver-coloured- (ie. aluminium-based-) belt-buckle, which is nicely: 'RzM' - 'M4/39' marked and having an unusual 'catch-set-up', in overall nice (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-) condition. The buckle is IMO only moderately worn but still has a neat silverish and very bright, typical 'aluminium'-finish, without showing any real defaults nor damage (it has IMO never been cleaned nor polished and shows some dust and/or minimal staining). The piece has however really maintained stunning and/or pronounced detail. Of additional interest is of course the neat makers'-mark (which is stamped on the back as usual). As stated comes this example on a very unusual 'catch-set-up' (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very nice - and most certainly scarcely encountered! - 'variant-pattern' youth-buckle that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and never before seen! - metal-based, WH (Heeres) 'souvenir' match-box holder, depicting a steel-helmet with below the impressed text: 'Truppenübnungsplatz Münsingen' - overall nice (albeit minimal used-) condition! This is an attractive - and actually never before seen! - metal- (ie. chromed-steel-) based, WH (Heeres) 'souvenir' match-box holder, depicting a German steel-helmet (with eagle-device and swastika!) with below the impressed text: 'Truppenübnungsplatz Münsingen', in overall nice (albeit minimal used-) condition. The piece is fairly small-sized and measures 5,5 x 4 cms.: it is ideally fitted to carry a box of matches. It came with a (non-period- ie. post-war-) box of matches. I am convinced that this is a scarcely encountered soldiers'-'souvenir-item' that was acquired by a soldier during his education at this army trainings-facillity based in the German town of Münsingen. I know that these items are often copied: this is a 100% garuanteed, period-item that was recently uncovered at a private household. Just the first such neat item I ever had on offer!
Attractive - and nicely detailed! - lapel-pin ie. 'brooch', as intended for a female member within the: 'Reichsarbeitsdienst der weiblichen Jugend' (or: RADwJ), being a so-called: 'Brosche für Arbeitsmaid (Pflicht)' This is a truly attractive - and/or nicely detailed! - example of a light-weight- and/or aluminium-based 'membership-brooch' as was intended for a female member within the: 'Reichsarbeitsdienst der weiblichen Jugend' (or: RADwJ), being a so-called: 'Brosche für Arbeitsmaid (Pflicht)' (or conscription war-service), in overall very nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition. The badge - which has an approximate diameter of 4 cms. - shows a swastika-sign with below two typical RADwJ corn-leaves surrounded by the text: 'Reichsarbeitsdienst Weiblichen Jugend'. The piece - which is executed in silverish-coloured aluminium is a tiny bit dirty but was most certainly never cleaned ie. polished: it is still a bit dirty ie. dusty. The lapel-pin shows some regular wear and/or age and has its period-attached pin-/catch set-up in place (see pictures). It has a neat makers’-mark-stamp ie. date (1938) on the back (see photos). The pin is also figured in the Heering-Hüsken lapel-pin-catalogue, where it is given a unique number (3806A) and given an estimated value of 70 Eu. The example on offer here originates from a German flea-market and was never before in a collection. Simply a very nice and decorative, female-related TR lapel-pin that is IMO accordingly priced!

Attractive - and not that easily encountered albeit regretttably empty! - semi-leather-based etui, as was intended to store a: 'KvK 1. Klasse mit Schwerter', being a desirable and luxuriously-style example that shows a neat illustration of a: 'KvK 1. Kl.' This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered-, albeit regretttably empty! - semi-leather-based etui, as was intended to store a: 'KvK 1. Klasse mit Schwerter', being a desirable and luxuriously-styled example that shows a neat illustration of a: 'KvK 1. Kl.' on its top, in overall very nice (albeit surely issued- ie. used-) condition. The etui - which is void of any marker-mark as is more often encountered - is in an overall very nicely preserved condition: it is naturally fully functional and has a fully preserved, black-coloured (ie. velvet-) interior-section (see pictures). It shows a silver-toned illustration of a 'KvK 1. Kl.' on its top (see pictures). Simply an attractive and/or with certainty desirable etui: hard to find a nicer and truly untouched example for a more interesting price!
Attractive - and not that easily encountered! - 'Buntmetall'-based: 'KvK 1. Klasse mit Schwerter'-set, being a maker- (ie. '15'-) marked example that comes in its semi-leather-based etui that shows an illustration of a 'KvK 1. Kl.' on its top This is an attractive - and actually not that often encountered! - so-called: 'Buntmetall'-based version of a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1. Klasse mit Schwerter' (or: first-class, war-merits'-cross with swords-) set, comprising of a neatly maker- (ie. '15'-) marked example that comes stored in its semi-leather-based (IMO early pattern- and fairly luxerious-) etui that shows an illustration of a 'KvK 1. Kl.' on its top, in overall very nice (albeit surely issued- ie. used-) condition. The - IMO truly worn and/or used - cross is a neat non-magnetic- (and/or so-called: 'Buntmetall'- ie. 'Tombak'-based-) example that was IMO never cleaned nor polished: it still retains all its its silver-coloured finish and retains some of its so-called: 'hochpolierte Kanten' - see pictures. The cross comes naturally mounted on its functional pin- and/or catch (-set-up) and comes as found and stored for decades: it was never cleaned nor polished and retains a slighty dirty- ie. minimally 'darkened' age-patina (see pictures). As stated above is this example a maker- (ie. '15'-) marked example that was as such produced by the Friedrich Orth-company based in the Austrian town on Wien (ie. Vienna). The etui is in an overall nicely preserved condition: it is fully functional and has a fully preserved, black-coloured (ie. velvet-) interior-section (see pictures). It shows a silver-toned illustration of a 'KvK 1. Kl.' on its top (see pictures). It should be noted that IMO the KvK 1st class is a bit underestimated by the collectors'-community: they can IMO be almost graded equally as the IC 1st class. Simply an attractive and/or with certainty desirable 'boxed' 'Buntmetall'-based example: hard to find a nicer and truly untouched set for a more interesting price!
Attractive - and not that easily encountered! - 'Buntmetall'-based: 'KvK 1. Klasse mit Schwerter'-set, being a maker- (ie. '65'-) marked example that comes in its semi-leather-based etui that shows a neat illustration of a: 'KvK 1. Kl.' on its top This is an attractive - and actually not that often encountered! - so-called: 'Buntmetall'-based version of a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1. Klasse mit Schwerter' (or: first-class, war-merits'-cross with swords-) set, comprising of a neatly maker- (ie. '65'-) marked example that comes stored in its semi-leather-based (IMO early pattern- and fairly luxerious-) etui that shows an illustration of a 'KvK 1. Kl.' on its top, in overall very nice (albeit surely issued- ie. used-) condition. The - IMO truly worn and/or used - cross is a neat non-magnetic- (and/or so-called: 'Buntmetall'- ie. 'Tombak'-based-) example that was IMO never cleaned nor polished: it still retains all its its silver-coloured finish and retains also some of its so-called: 'hochpolierte Kanten' - see pictures. The cross comes naturally mounted on its functional pin- and/or catch (-set-up) and comes as found and stored for decades: it was never cleaned nor polished and retains a slighty dirty- ie. minimally 'darkened' age-patina (see pictures). As stated above is this example a maker- (ie. '65'-) marked example that was as such produced by the: 'Klein u. Quenzer AG'-company based in the town of Oberstein. The etui is in an overall nicely preserved condition: it is fully functional and has a fully preserved, black-coloured (ie. velvet-) interior-section and shows an imprinted makers-designation in the top of its lid (see pictures). It shows a silver-toned illustration of a 'KvK 1. Kl.' on its top (see pictures). It should be noted that IMO the KvK 1st class is a bit underestimated by the collectors'-community: they can IMO be almost graded equally as the IC 1st class. Simply an attractive and/or with certainty desirable 'boxed' 'Buntmetall'-based example: hard to find a nicer and truly untouched set for a more interesting price!
Attractive - and not that easily encountered! - 'Buntmetall'-based: 'KvK 1. Klasse mit Schwerter'-set, being a neatly maker- (ie. '62'-) marked example that comes in its semi-leather-based etui, as was produced by the maker: 'Kerbach & Oesterholt' This is an attractive - and actually not that often encountered! - so-called: 'Buntmetall'-based: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1. Klasse mit Schwerter' (or: first-class, war-merits'-cross with swords-) set, comprising of a neatly maker- (ie. '62'-) marked example that comes stored in its (early pattern and equally maker-marked!) semi-leather-based etui, as was produced by the: 'Kerbach & Oesterholt'-company, in overall nice (albeit surely issued- ie. used-) condition. The - IMO truly worn and/or used - cross is a neat non-magnetic- (and/or so-called: 'Buntmetall'- ie. 'Tombak'-based-) cross that was never cleaned nor polished: it still retains all its its silver-coloured finish but has lost some of its so-called: 'Hochpolierte Kanten' (just some remains are still present and/or visible - see pictures). The cross comes naturally mounted on its functional pin- and/or catch set-up and comes as found and stored for decades: it was never cleaned nor polished and retains a slighty dirty- ie. somewhat 'darkened' age-patina (see pictures). As stated above is this example neatly maker- (ie. '62'-) marked (on the inside of the pin as always by examples by this maker) denoting that it deals with an award that was produced by the: 'Kerbach & Oesterholt'-company based in the town of Dresden. The etui is in an overall equally nicely preserved condition: it is fully functional (and shows the printed and/or silver-grey coloured 'KvK'-symbol with swastika-sign on its top - see pictures). The etui has a fully preserved, black-coloured (ie. velvet-) interior-section (see pictures) and shows the neatly printed makers'-mark of: 'Kerbach & Oesterholt - Dresden A1' in the top of the lid (see pictures). It should be noted that IMO the KvK 1st class is a bit underestimated by the collectors'-community: they can IMO be almost graded equally as the IC 1st class. Simply a very nice and desirable 'boxed' example: hard to find a nicer and truly untouched set for a more interesting price!
Attractive - and not that easily encountered! - 'Buntmetall'-based: 'KvK 1. Klasse mit Schwerter'-set, being a non-maker-marked example that comes in its semi-leather-based- and/or neatly 'LDO'-marked etui This is an attractive - and actually not that often encountered! - so-called: 'Buntmetall'-based version of a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1. Klasse mit Schwerter' (or: first-class, war-merits'-cross with swords-) set, comprising of a non-maker-marked example that comes stored in its (IMO early pattern- and fairly luxerious-) semi-leather-based etui, in overall very nice (albeit surely issued- ie. used-) condition. The - IMO truly worn and/or used - cross is a neat non-magnetic- (and/or so-called: 'Buntmetall'- ie.

The cross comes naturally mounted on its functional pin- and/or catch (-set-up) and comes as found and stored for decades: it was never cleaned nor polished and retains a slighty dirty- ie. minimally 'darkened' age-patina (see pictures). As stated above is this example not marker-marked as is actually more often encountered. The etui is in an overall equally nicely preserved condition: it is fully functional and has a fully preserved, beige-coloured (ie. velvet-) interior-section (see pictures). It shows a golden-toned 'LDO'-mark in its upper-lid (see pictures). It should be noted that IMO the KvK 1st class is a bit underestimated by the collectors'-community: they can IMO be almost graded equally as the IC 1st class. Simply an attractive and/or with certainty desirable 'boxed' 'Buntmetall'-based example: hard to find a nicer and truly untouched set for a more interesting price!
Attractive - and not that easily encountered! - 'Buntmetall'-based: 'KvK II. Klasse mit Schwerter'-set, being a non-maker-marked example that comes in its bordeaux-red-coloured- and/or neatly 'LDO'-marked etui This is an attractive - and actually not that often encountered! - so-called: 'Buntmetall'-based version of a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz II. Klasse mit Schwerter' (or: second-class, war-merits'-cross with swords-) set, comprising of a non-maker-marked example that comes stored in its (rarely seen - and fairly luxerious-) carton-based- and/or bordeaux-red- coloured etui, in overall very nice (albeit surely issued- ie. used-) condition. The - IMO truly worn and/or used - cross is an attractive, non-magnetic- (and/or so-called: 'Buntmetall'- ie. 'Tombak'-based-) example that was IMO never cleaned nor polished: it still retains all its its golden-bronze-coloured finish - see pictures. The cross comes as found and/or stored for decades: it was never cleaned nor polished and retains a slighty dirty- ie. minimally 'darkened' age-patina (see pictures). As stated above is this example not marker-marked as is actually more often encountered. The - actually truly rarely encountered! - etui is in an overall equally nicely preserved condition: it is fully functional and has a fully preserved, red-coloured- (ie. velvet-based-) interior-section (see pictures). It shows a black-coloured 'LDO'-mark stamped into its upper-lid (see pictures). Simply an attractive and/or with certainty desirable 'boxed' 'Buntmetall'-based example: hard to find a nicer and truly untouched 'LDO'-set for a more interesting price!
Attractive - and not that easily encountered! - 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber', being a non-maker-marked-, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based version (ie. 'egg-head-variant'), as was (presumably) procuded by the: 'Gustav Brehmer'-company This is an attractive - albeit moderately used ie. worn albeit most certainly not that easily encountered! - example of an: 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber' (or silver assault-badge ie. IAB), being a non-maker-marked-, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based version (ie. so-called: 'egg-head-variant'), as was (presumably) procuded by the: 'Gustav Brehmer'-company based in the town of Marneukirchen in Sachsen, in overall very nice (albeit issued- ie. moderately worn-) condition. The badge is a zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based example (although it has IMO the looks of a 'Buntmetall'-based award!) that retains most of its (shiny) silver-coloured finish: it has a nice age-patina but is somewhat tarnished in certain areas (see pictures). This particular example comes naturally mounted on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-coloured-) pin which shows a typical mounting and/or specific (non-altered-) catch as to be expected. The piece is quite detailed and has a very pronounced appearance: the award has IMO been moderately used and shows some minimal wear ie. dirt on some the obvious higher-placed areas: it was however most certainly never cleaned nor polished. It originated from a private household in Germany and was never before in collector-hands. The maker of this particular IAB is most likely the: 'Gustav Brehmer'-company and it deals with an uncommonly encountered so-called: 'egg-head-variant'. In any case an attractive and honest IAB that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and not that easily encountered! - 'standard-pattern' WH (Heeres) 'Wehrpass', as was issued to the: 'Gefreiten' Bauer, member within amongst others the: 'Ers.u.Ausb.Abt. Ers.Brig. (mot)' “GrossDeutschland” This is a truly attractive - and not that easily encountered! - 'standard-pattern'-, WH (Heeres) 'Wehrpass' (or: paybook), as was issued to the: 'Gefreiten' Reinhold Bauer, born in 1924, member within - amongst others - the: 'Ers.u.Ausb.Abt. Ers.Brig. (mot)' “GrossDeutschland”, in very nice and/or complete condition. According to the standard-entries on pages 2 and/or: 4 of the WB was Bauer enlisted (as a simple soldier ie. 'Grenadier') on 20 February, 1942 and was attached (actually on 1 April, 1943) to the: 'Inf.Nach.Ers.u.Ausb.Kp. (mot) 29'. After this 'enlistment-date' in February, 1943, Bauer served in various other GD- (ie. “GrossDeutschland”-) related units such as the: 'Ers.u.Ausb.Abt. Ers.Brig. (mot)' “GrossDeutschland” and/or the: 'Marschkompanie “Panzertruppen”- 'Ers.u.Ausb.Abt. Ers.Brig. (mot)' “GrossDeutschland” to mention just a few (something that can easily be deducted from the (stamped- and/or written-) entries on page 12 of the WP). The WP is in an overall very nice and fully complete condition: it is not denazified and bears various 'standard'-entries and/or (clear!) ink-stamps as to be expected with such a neat and/or mid-war period issued example. Bauer saw definitely some action (as can be deducted from the information provided on page 32) but regrettably did not receive any awards (the 'award-page' on page of 23 of the WP is void of any entries). Bauer received proper-training as a truck-driver (he went to the: to the: 'LKW Fahrschule' and was in possesion of his drivers-license (ie. 'W. Führerschein Kl. 2') as is properly entered in the WP (on page 21 of the WP). The WP shows a (civil-styled-) picture of Bauer and naturally retains all its 52 pages and has naturally various standard-entries regarding units ie. unit-tranfers, RAD-service, promotions, received payments and/or rendered leave: all are neatly filled-in and are naturally present. On 1 March, 1944, Bauer was promoted to: 'Gefreiter' as is properly entered in the WP (on page 22 of the WP). One of the last entries concerns the sad death of Bauer (on 10 August, 1944): Bauer was KIA in Lithuania (Litauen in German language) as is properly entered in the WP (on page 34 of the WP). The WP came with a period, commorative death-notice (ie. advert) that was apparently placed as such in a local newspaper by Bauers relatives (see pictures). I deem that this neat “GrossDeutschland”-WP most certainly merits further investigation. It should be noted that all GD-related Wehrpässe are very desirable and hard to encounter. Simply a desirable, mid-war-period-, Heeres 'Wehrpass' that was issued to the: 'Gefreiten' Reinhold Bauer who served in various “GrossDeutschland” units: I deem that this neat GD-Wehrpass is accordingly priced!
Attractive - and not that easily encountered! - IMO early-pattern, WH (Heeres) side-cap- (ie. 'Schiffchen'-) eagle, being a 'tropical-pattern' example as was woven on a typical, tan-coloured background This is an attractive example of a WH (Heeres) side-cap- (ie. 'Schiffchen'-) eagle, being a 'tropical-pattern' example as was woven in bluish-grey couloured linnen on a typical, tan-coloured- (and/or also linnen-based-) background, in overall very nice ie. virtually mint-/unissued condition. These attractive cap-eagles saw also usage on the scarcely encountered so-called: M41-type field-caps (or: 'Einheitsfeldmützen'). I deem this a piece of a fairly early-production that saw usage within the Balkan- and/or Medditerenean war-fronts but that was also used by the members of the: 'Deutsches Afrikakorps‘ (DAK). This example is clearly unissued and comes ‘as straightly cut-off the role‘ but shows some minor age and/or staining simply caused by years of storage only. Simply a nice example of a ‘tropical-pattern' side-cap- (ie. ‘Schiffchen‘-) eagle
Attractive - and not that easily encountered! - neatly maker- (ie. 'F&R'-) marked- and/or: 'semi-hollow-back'-pattern example of an: 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Bronze' as was produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'Frank u. Reif' This is a truly attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - neatly maker- (ie. 'F&R'-) marked- and/or: 'semi-hollow-back'-pattern example of an: 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Bronze' as was produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'Frank & Reif', in overall very nice, (albeit IMO only minimally used ie. worn-) condition. This example is executed in darker-, bronze-toned zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink') as to be expected and truly retains most of its original applied (somewhat matted-) finish and retains a superb age-patina (it was most certainly never cleaned nor polished). The - minimally converse-shaped- award naturally retains its period (and/or fully unaltered-) catch (-set-up) as can be seen on the pictures and shows as such all the charateristics of an IAB that was produced by the: 'Frank u. Reif'-company based in the town of Stuttgart. It is a typical example showing all features seen with badges by this desirable maker. The piece has naturally a functional-, steel-based pin as usually encountered with pieces by this maker: of additional interest is the fact that these particular awards show a spelling-mistake in the makers-designation: they show the text: 'Fank & Reif' on their back (see pictures). Simply a very attractive and/or honest, IAB 'hollow-back'-pattern example by a desirable maker!
Attractive - and not that easily encountered! - neatly maker- (ie. 'F.L.L.'-) marked example of an: 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber', being a detailed example as was produced by the maker: 'Friedrich Linden' This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - neatly maker- (ie. 'F.L.L.'-) marked example of an: 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber' (or IAB in silver) as was produced by the desirable maker: 'Friedrich Linden', that comes in an overall very nice, (albeit IMO minimally used ie. worn-) condition. This example is executed in (fairly tarnished-) silverished, zinc-based metal (ie.'Feinzink') and retains a fair bit of its silverish finish: it is however a bit dirty ie. stained but retains nevertheless a nice age-patina (it was most certainly never cleaned nor polished). As stated above does it deals with a typical, zinc-based example (ie. desirable 'variant' having a complete 'crimped-in catch- and/or hinge set-up-') as was produced by the: 'Friedrich Linden'-company based in the town of Lüdenscheid. It is a typical example showing all features seen with badges by this desirable maker. The piece has naturally a functional catch and/or silver-coloured pin as usually encountered with pieces by this maker. Simply a nice and honest, neatly ‘maker-marked’ silver-class IAB by a desirable maker!
Attractive - and not that easily encountered! - non-maker-marked- and/or: 'hollow-back'-pattern example of an: 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Bronze' as was produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'Friedrich Linden' This is a truly attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - non-maker-marked- and/or: 'vaulted hollow-back'-pattern example of an: 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Bronze' (or IAB in bronze) as was produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'Friedrich Linden', in overall very nice, (albeit IMO only minimally used ie. worn-) condition. This example is executed in darker-, bronze-toned zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink') as to be expected and truly retains most of its original applied (somewhat glossy-) finish and retains a superb age-patina (it was most certainly never cleaned nor polished). The - truly very converse-shaped- ie. vaulted - award naturally retains its period (and/or fully unaltered-) catch (-set-up) as can be seen on the pictures and shows as such all the charateristics of an IAB that was produced by the: 'Friedrich Linden'-company based in the town of Lüdenscheid. It is a typical example showing all features seen with badges by this desirable maker. The piece has naturally a functional-, steel-based pin as usually encountered with pieces by this maker. Simply a very attractive and/or honest, IAB 'hollow-back'-pattern example by a desirable maker!
Attractive - and not that easily encountered! - non-maker-marked- and/or: 'semi-hollow-back'-pattern example of an: 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Bronze' as was produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'Steinhauer u. Lück' This is a truly attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - non-maker-marked- and/or: 'semi-hollow-back'-pattern example of an: 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Bronze' as was produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'Steinhauer u. Lück' (ie.'S&L'), in overall very nice, (albeit IMO only minimally used ie. worn-) condition. This example is executed in darker- ie. bronze-toned zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink') as to be expected and truly retains most of its original applied (somewhat matted-) finish and retains a superb age-patina (it was most certainly never cleaned nor polished). The - minimally converse-shaped- award naturally retains its period (and/or fully unaltered-) catch (-set-up) as can be seen on the pictures and shows as such all the charateristics of an IAB that was produced by the: 'Steinhauer u. Lück'-company based in the town of Lüdenscheid. It is a typical example showing all features seen with badges by this desirable maker. The piece has naturally a functional-, pin (-set-up) - see pictures. Simply a very attractive and/or honest, IAB 'semi-hollow-back'-pattern example by a desirable maker!
