Superb - and/or fully matching! - pair of early- (ie. pre-) war-period, 'M36'-pattern- (rounded styled-), WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel der Feldgendarmerie-Truppen'
The truly very attractive - and with certainty very rarely encountered! - shoulderstraps are piped in the neat bright-orange- (ie. 'orangeroter'-) coloured branchcolour both measure approximately 11,8 cms. in length each: they have the woolen-type piping attached as is more often encountered with these early- (ie. pre-) war-period-, 'M36'-pattern- (rounded styled-) shoulderstrap-pairs. The shoulderstraps - which originate from a private household where they were recently found as such - are fully 'text-book'-examples having the darker-green-coloured- and/or smooth-woolen-based '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 have the neat 'standard'-type-, silver-coloured- (ie. fairly shiny-) 'Heeres'-type- NCO-braid and two (identical, regular-sized- and/or aluminium-based-) pips period-attached, denoting the NCOs'-rank of: 'Feldwebel' (ie. sergeant). These desirable 'M36'-pattern, 'Feldgendarmerie'- (ie. field-police-) related NCO-type-shoulderstraps can easily be graded 'rare' and are almost never offered for sale. Of course, did I price this very attractive shoulderstrap-pair according to its unmistaken rarity and/or desirability!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Luftwaffe) general-officers'-type shoulderboard, as was executed in golden-/silver toned so-called: 'braid', as was intended for usage by a: 'Generalmajor u. Wehrmachtsbeamte der LW'
The truly attractive shoulderboard - which is constructed from the beige-white-coloured, 'smooth-type' (ie. moleskin-like-) wool and having a darker-green-coloured- (and also 'smooth-type'-like-) woolen 'backing', has the the golden-/silver toned- so-called: 'braid'-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 10,2 cms. in length - never had any pip (pips) attached, denoting the rank of a: 'Generalmajor der Luftwaffe im Verwaltungs- dienst' (or: airforce-related, administration general-officer - see pictures). The neat board came without tongue as found and was clearly intended to be used as a piece of the 'sew-in'-type. It came as recently found at a private household in Germany and was never before in collectors'-hands. It should be noted that all general-officers' shoulderboards can easily be graded 'very scarce': those intended for usage by 'Generale der Luftwaffe im Verwaltungsdienst' even more so! Too bad that it is only a single example!

Very attractive, example of an N.S.D.A.P.-related party-armband, being of the 'non-woven'-type and still retaining its period-attached, so-called: 'RzM-etiket'
This is a truly very attractive example of an N.S.D.A.P.-related party-armband, being of the 'non-woven'- (ie. entirely linnen-based-) type and still retaining its period-attached so-called: 'RzM-etiket', in overall very nice- (IMO virtually mint-/unissued- ie. never issued- nor worn-), condition. These linnen-based bands were 'standard' for usage by the various N.S.D.A.P. members and/or officials (but were also worn by members of various other Third Reich organisations such as for example the members of the N.S.K.K. and/or SA to mention a few) and were worn on the left upper-arm. This example - having a total size of 40 cms. and which is 11,5 cms. wide as more often - is constructed from bright-red-coloured linnen and shows a separately attached so-called: 'swastika'-roundel (constructed from black-coloured- and linnen-based 'braid' (as can be seen on the pictures). The black-coloured swastika is - as stated - constructed from black-coloured 'braid' and is attached to the whit- coloured- and/or also linnen-based roundel (see pictures). This example - which was never used nor stitched-together - still retains its period-attached-, paper-based- so-called: 'RzM-etiket' (see pictures). The piece is very nicely made and is truly void of any age, staining and/or wear. Simply a very nice and desirable 'variant' party-related item that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and in this complete condition scarcely encountered! - example of a 'boxed', 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Silber', being a non-maker-marked example as was executed in bright silver-coloured, so-called: 'Feinzink'
The neat badge is as stated an attractive (albeit non-maker-marked-) example that was executed in (fairly bright-) silver-toned-, zinc ie. so-called: 'Feinzink'. The badge shows only minimal (or even no) wear and comes of course mounted on its fully functional- and/or: typically, thin-shaped pin as is more often encountered on these wound-badges (see pictures). The badge is most certainly never cleaned and retains almost all its silver-toned finish. It only shows some minimal tarnish and/or staining (it has however never been cleaned nor polished though - as can be seen on the pictures). The piece was recently found at a German private household and came still 'packed' ie. stored in its neat - and actually scarcely encountered! - bordeaux-red-coloured etui as issued and/or kept for decades. This - unmarked - etui shows the signs of having been stored with the WB in it and is in an overall, equally nicely preserved, condition: it is fully functional and has a nicely preserved, red-coloured- (ie. simulated, velvet-based-) interior-section (see pictures). This inner-section comes loosely fitted into the box and can be taken-out. Simply an attractive and/or with certainty desirable 'boxed', 'Feinzink'-based example of the second- ie. silver: hard to find a nicer and truly untouched set for a more interesting price!
Attractive - and nowadays rarely encountered! - WH (Heeres) 'tropical-issue' (ie. DAK or: 'Deutsches Afrika Korps'-related-) breasteagle, as was executed in neat so-called: 'BeVo'-weave style
This is a truly very attractive - and nowadays rarely encountered! - example of a 'standard-pattern'-, WH (Heeres) 'tropical-issue' (ie. DAK or: 'Deutsches Afrika Korps'-related-) breasteagle, as was executed in neat so-called: 'BeVo'-weave style, that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. non-confectioned- and/or virtually mint- ie. unissued-), condition. This example is neatly light-blue-coloured and is executed on a tropical brownish- (ie. typical tan-) coloured and/or linnen-based background as to be expected. The piece is - as stated above - in virtually mint-/unissued condition and comes 'as straightly cut-of the role'. The piece has very nice detail overall. These original 'BeVo'-woven examples are getting almost impossible to find something that merits its IMO justified asking-price. The eagle can of course easily be used to complete any tropical tunic. Simply a nice and truly rarely seen piece of tropical 'BeVo'-type insignia: it can as stated easily serve to restore a tunic or kept in any cloth-insignia (ie. eagle-) collection as such. Simply a very attractive and most certainly desirable example!
Superb - and actually extremely rarely encountered! - so-called: male-type-, 'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') district-triangle (ie. 'Gebietsdreieck') entitled: 'Ost Schlesien', still retaining its period-applied 'RzM'-etiket
This is a 'male'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in bright-golden-coloured linnen on a black-coloured- (and/or also linnen-based-) background. This example still retains its paper-based- and period-applied so-called: 'RzM-etiket' and was IMO a piece that was never worn nor tunic-attached: it does show some age and/or minimal staining, simply caused by decades of storage only - see pictures). This is one of the truly rarely encountered examples of the extensive 'Gebietsdreiecken'-series. In any case, a very attractive, male-type 'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') district-triangle that is IMO priced according to its rarity and/or desirability!
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 non-marked example
This is a little piece of WH-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 executed in fairly shiny, black-coloured leather, being a non-marked example, in overall very nice and/or only moderately used- ie. worn, 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 fully souple: it comes thus in a still fully functional condition. The flap comes with both its two original still fully blackened- (and/or IMO steel-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 example of an: 'Ehrenkreuz der deutschen Mutter - erste Stufe' (or mothers'-cross in gold), that comes stored in its original and/or neatly maker- (ie. 'Wilhelm Deumer - Lüdenscheid'-) marked etui as issued and/or recently found
This is a truly very attractive example of a boxed, so-called: 'Mutterkreuz' (mothers'-cross) in gold (ie. 'Ehrenkreuz der deutschen Mutter - erste Stufe') that comes mounted on its original, somewhat confectioned but IMO full-length (ie. approximately 70 cms. long-sized- albeit somewhat wrinkled-), ribbon and that came still stored in its period etui as issued, in overall very nice (albeit IMO used and/or issued-) condition. The medal has truly no enamel damage whatsoever and is in a very nice and/or totally uncleaned condition. The golden finish is simply excellent and the medal has a very nice age and/or truly bright age-patina. The ribbon is just a tiny bit stained and/or wrinkled (being a sign that the medal was IMO most certainly worn). The etui is in slightly used condition and bears a clear makers'-mark stamped within the top-lid that reads: 'Wilh. Deumer - Kom Ges. - Lüdenscheid' (see pictures). The yellowish-coloured- and/or velvet-based inner-lining is also in a very nice and fully undamaged condtion (it does show some minimal age and/or staining though - see pictures). The golden-toned cross-symbol on the top of the etui is in a complete and also fully undamaged condition (see pictures). Simply a superb golden-class 'MK-set' without any defaults: hard to upgrade this example!

Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - 'standard-issued'-type, WH binoculars 'Dienstglas' 6 x 30 so-called: 'anti-movement flap' (or: 'Tragelasche') as executed in brownish-black-coloured leather, being a non-marked example
This is a little piece of WH-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 executed in fairly shiny, brownish-black-coloured leather, being a non-marked example, in overall very nice and/or only moderately used- ie. worn, 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 fully souple: it comes thus in a still fully functional condition. The flap comes with both its two original once-blackened- (and/or copper-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!

Neat - and actually not that easily encountered! - WH (Heeres) unissued helmet- decal being a maker- (ie. 'Ed Strache - Warnsdorf'-) marked example depicting the 'Reichsadler'-symbol
This is a neat - and actually not that easily encountered! - WH (Heeres) unissued helmet- decal being a maker- (ie. 'Ed Strache - Warnsdorf'-) marked example depicting the 'Reichsadler'-symbol. The decal comes in a virtually mint- ie. unissued condition but does show some minimal scratches (simply caused by decades of storage and/or handling. It should however be noted that (IMO) these original decals can not anymore be used to 'upgrade' a steel-helmet: they should be more seen as desirable collectibles. It should be noted that these genuine-, period helmet-decals can easily be considered 'fairly scarce' and are not often offered for sale!
