(Pictures)

D025.  Italian Fascist WW2 Era MVSN Dagger.  This weapon was utilized both as a service and dress weapon.  The hilt has a solid wooden grip contoured with 4 finger recesses.  Two steel rivets protrude through the grip to the blade tang to secure the blade into place.  The crossguard is steel as is the upper retaining plate on the top of the grip.  The finish has worn from the scabbard.  The scabbard is pressed steel bearing the emblem of the MVSN which is a fasces over the letters "M.V.S.N."  which was the Fascist Party Militia in Italy at that time (Milizia Voluntaria Sicurezza Nationale).  See pictures...

D034.  Cased 3/4 Size Miniature Luftwaffe Dagger by "SMF".  Absolutely superb and rare Cased 3/4 Size Miniature Luftwaffe Dagger by "SMF" in excellent condition.  The mint blade is marked "SMF Solingen D.R.G.M." and shows the seated king logo of that company.  There is a blue leather washer in place where the blade goes into the crossguard.  The dagger is in overall near-mint condition and is as nice an example as you will find.  The overall length of this impressive miniature dagger is about 9 inches.  The form-fitted case is about 11 inches by 3 inches in size and a bit over once inch high.  The dagger is complete with its miniature portepee and original form-fitted presentation case that has a blue velvet interior.  This is the first such cased dagger I have owned.  Another such example is photographed in the first Johnson dagger reference book on page 199.  Cased miniature daggers are extremely rare and this piece was no doubt given as a gift to a pilot or other important person in the Luftwaffe on an important occasion. You rarely find these daggers complete with their original prsentation cases.  Excellent and rare.  See pictures...  (Pictures)

D037.  Early SA Dagger by "JOHANN LEUPOLD BAYREUTH".  This example has early all nickel fittings.  The blade is bright with some areas of darkening rating an overall near-excellent.  You can see most of the cross-graining on the blade.  The crossguard is group marked.  The scabbard has wear to the anodizing but has a nice look.  This piece has a leather hanger and the belt loop device.  The SA roundel and eagle are made from nickel as are all of the dagger and crossguard fittings.  The scabbard ball has a dent.  An overall very nice example... (Pictures)

D042  Luftwaffe Second Model Dagger by "WEYERSBERG" with Waffenamt marking.  This example was issued by the Luftwaffe as it has the Waffenamt mark next to the maker mark.  The blade on this example is bright but does have some graying.  One of the scabbard screws is missing.  Nice example.  See pictures...

The original leather washer is present under the crossguard.  The scabbard is the type with the single screw on the reverse.  The fittings have a pleasant appearance and the nickel finish rates at close to 100 percent.  Nice example that would be impossible to upgrade.  See pictures... (Pictures)

D055.  Luftwaffe Paratrooper Gravity Knife by "PAUL WEYERSBERG".  Decent looking Luftwaffe Paratrooper Gravity Knife by "PAUL WEYERSBERG".  This example is waffen-amt marked on the spike and maker marked on the blade.  The knife functions correctly and is not damaged.  The blade has a good amount of sharpening and no doubt saw use.  The blade is bright and shows a good amount of crossgraining even with the sharpening.  See pictures... (Pictures)

D058.  Italian Fascist WW2 Era MVSN Officer's Dagger.  This weapon was utilized both as a service and dress weapon.  The hilt has a solid wooden grip contoured with 4 finger recesses.  Engraved into the wooden hilt are letters that possibly represent the initials or name of the original owner of the piece.  This practice is seen from time to time on these examples.  Two steel rivets protrude through the grip to the blade tang to secure the blade into place.  The cross-guard is steel as is the upper retaining plate on the top of the grip.  The finish has worn from the scabbard.  The scabbard is pressed steel.  The enlisted version bears the emblem of the MVSN which is a fasces over the letters "M.V.S.N." while the officer's version has no such emblem.  The MVSN was the Fascist Party Militia in Italy at that time (Milizia Voluntaria Sicurezza Nationale).  The front of the scabbard has some scratching to the enamel paint but the scratching does not affect the steel.  This could be refinished or stripped should the buyer choose to, but I would leave it as is.  Scarce.  See pictures... (Pictures)

D076.  Naval Officer's Dagger by "ORIGINAL EICKHORN SOLINGEN".  Nice Naval Officer's Dagger by "ORIGINAL EICKHORN SOLINGEN" with brass fittings and an engraved blade with an anchor motif.  The logo is stamped into the blade as is correct.  There are two dings in the scabbard...probably from the dagger getting caught in the door while being worn.  This piece is an indirect vet buy.  The dagger could use a good polishing as the gilt is well worn and only remains in the recessed areas for the most part.  The blade has some graying but is bright overall.  The grip is in great shape with the wire intact and no damage to the white part of the grip.  A decent Kriegsmarine Dagger at an affordable price with a good look... (Pictures)

D079.  Police NCO Degen by "CLEMEN & JUNG SOLINGEN".  This example has a dark blade with a number of nicks.  I believe that the blade darkening is not due to rust but rather from dried oil.  I believe this could be cleaned with a little tlc.  There are two dings at the bottom of the scabbard.  The grip eagle is zinc.  The wood on the grip is in pretty good shape.  There is a hole drilled into the bottom of the scabbard and it looks as if this was professionally done during the period.  The degen is complete with the original police knot.  The scabbard appears to have no paint but has turned a black color and almost appears to be anodized.  Not a bad piece for the price and it should clean up nicely... (Pictures)

D086.  Personalized Army Officer's Dagger with "High Lift" Cross-guard.  This Personalized Army Officer's Dagger with "High Lift" Cross-guard was no-doubt made by Alcoso even though the blade is not maker marked as only Alcoso used this type of three dimensional cross-guard.  The pommel is also an Alcoso produced item.  The dagger is engraved on the back with the name of the original owner "K Junge".  This dagger has a bright blade with some graying.  All of the dagger fittings have an even dark patina.  The dagger has a pleasing un-cleaned  look.  The original leather washer is present between the blade and cross-guard...

(Pictures)  

D112.  Hitler Youth Knife by Eickhorn with the "Blut Und Ehre!" Motto.  This Hitler Youth Knife by Eickhorn with the "Blut Und Ehre!" Motto has the scarce version Eickhorn trademark showing just the squirrel and the wording "SOLINGEN GES. GESCHUTZ" without the actual name of the maker.  The blade on this example has some heavy sharpening marks going well into the motto.  This example has some wear to the scabbard paint and a bit of rust on the reverse of the cross-guard as well as some wear to the metal fittings.  The enamel on the HJ diamond is in great shape.  A rare maker mark.  See pictures...

D121.  Miniature Army Officer's Dagger by "E. & F. HORSTER SOLINGEN".  This Miniature Army Officer's Dagger by "E. & F.

(Pictures)

D134.  Luftwaffe Officer's Sword by "SMF SOLINGEN" with Waffenampt.  Super looking minty Luftwaffe Sword by "SMF SOLINGEN" with Waffenampt.  The Waffenampt marking on the blade indicates that this sword was Luftwaffe property and not a private purchase item.  This sword has aluminum fittings.  I would rate the leather at a near mint condition and the fittings at an excellent plus.  Much of the gilding remains on the swastikas and the leather has only very minor wear, probably from storage.  The blade is bright but does have a fair amount of dark spots, that appear to be spots from dried oil that was at one time meant to preserve the blade.  I would think that this could clean up some with some TLC.  This is a really good looking sword.  The grip leather is fully intact as is the wire and I would rate the grip at a mint state.  See pictures... (Pictures)

D139.  Army Officer's Sword with Engraved Eagle.  Nice looking Army Officer's Sword with Engraved Eagle and with early brass fittings.  The Army Officer's Swords with the engraved eagles as opposed to the cast-in eagles are much scarcer.  This sword has all early brass fittings.  The scabbard retains most of the original paint rating at over 90 percent.  The blade has some minor nicks that are not deep and not detractive.  The blade has some wear, but not bad and is bright overall.  A decent example with a desirable crossguard.  The grip is in excellent condition.  See pictures...

D195.  SS Officer's Sword by "PMD".  This SS Officer's Sword by "PMD" was made at Dachau and was purchased by me from Sterling Gambino some years back and traded away and then gotten back.  The blades on these examples were made from stainless steel.  This example is in excellent condition overall.  See pictures...

This style badge came out in 1942. This badge is much scarcer than the version with the lightning bolts coming out of the eagle’s talons (Wireless Operator/Air Gunner Badge). It would be difficult to upgrade this example. Excellent... (Pictures)

M197. Luftwaffe Paratrooper Badge by Assmann.  Super looking wartime Luftwaffe Paratrooper Badge by "A" for Assmann.  The finish on the eagle rates at about 100 percent and is most pleasing.  The wreath also has an excellent gray finish.  This is the nicest wartime Assmann Paratrooper Badge I have been able to offer in a while.  It would be impossible to upgrade this example.  See pictures...

Super looking Near-Mint Iron Cross First Class, 1939 version, that is maker marked "L/11" on the back of the badge under the catch.  This badge is in near-mint condition and would be impossible to upgrade.  This example was probably never issued as it shows no wear.  A super looking Iron Cross by a desirable maker in excellent near-mind condition... (Pictures)

M214.  Luftwaffe Paratrooper Badge by Assmann marked "L/64", "A" and "1".  Super looking late war injection molded Luftwaffe Paratrooper Badge by Assmann.  This piece is marked "A" and "L/64", which are both manufacturer codes for Assmann as well as marked "1" on the wreath.  It is believed that the "1" represents the die used ..i.e. the first die for the wreath.  I have also seen these wreaths with the number "2". The hinge is cast in and the catch is soldered on.  These late war paratrooper badges by Assmann are among my favorite paratrooper badges.  I have seen three correct types of these late war Assmann Badges and they make an interesting study.  The badge has a very pleasing look.  Superb example of a late war paratrooper badge with an absolutely terrific finish... (Pictures)

M215.  Luftwaffe Flak Badge, Early Example.  Super looking early nickel Luftwaffe Flak Badge.  This badge was introduced on January 10, 1941 and went into full production by the Juncker firm on January 31, 1941 as well as being made by other makers.  This badge was awarded to LW flak crews to recognize air defense actions and for a brief period, prior to the introduction of the LW Ground Assault Badge, this badge was awarded for actions where the flak guns used by these crews were involved in actions against ground targets such as tanks or ships.  This badge is of the earliest quality and in super condition with a really pleasing patina and would be hard to upgrade.  This example has a semi scooped out reverse and is one of the recognized early maker styles.  The catch on this badge is slightly bent but this is not detractive.  Excellent... (Pictures) 

M216.  Kriegsmarine U-Boat Badge.  This unmarked example was made by Foerster and Barth which used the maker code of L/21 on their marked examples.  This is evident by the pin, catch and hinge used on the reverse of this example as well as the die characteristics.  This is a scarce maker to find for U-Boat badges and I have seen the maker marked example of this badge selling in the 800 to 1200 dollar range on dealer web sites.  Anyway, my piece is more realistically priced.  Nice zinc based example.  See pictures... (Pictures)

M221.  Luftwaffe Paratrooper Badge by "B & N L" Named to Owner.  Nice looking mid-war  Luftwaffe Paratrooper Badge by "B & N L" Named to Owner on the reverse.  The reverse also has a swastika and sunburst scratched onto the back of the eagle.  Interesting to find a named example.  The eagle on this piece is tomback and the wreath is zinc.  The wreath has a crack at the left reverse rivet.  You can not notice this from the front and this is not detractive... (Pictures)

M223.  Kriegsmarine Destroyer Badge by "S.H.u.Co.".  Nice looking wartime zinc-based example of a destroyer badge by "S.H.u.Co.".  This example has a pleasing look and is a textbook example from this maker.  See pictures... (Pictures)  

M227.  Kriegsmarine Coastal Artillery Badge, French Made by Baqueville.  The French firm of Baqueville created a number of Naval Badges for the Kriegsmarine which had bases in Occupied France.  All French made German Navy badges utilized the same hinge, catch and pin assemblies.  These badges are all die forged and all are zinc based.  Rarer than their German made counterparts. See pictures... (Pictures)  

M232.  Army/Waffen-SS Infantry Assault Badge by "L/10".  This example is double marked, both on the reverse of the badge and on the pin.  Scarce and desirable maker to find.  See pictures... (Pictures)

M237.  Kriegsmarine High Seas Fleet Badge, French Made by Baqueville.  The French firm of Baqueville created a number of Naval Badges for the Kriegsmarine which had bases in Occupied France.  All French made German Navy badges utilized the same hinge, catch and pin assemblies.  These badges are all die forged and all are zinc based.  Rarer than their German made counterparts.  This badge retains about 75 percent of the original finish and has a pleasing look... (Pictures)

M249.  Kriegsmarine Destroyer Badge by "L/21". Nice looking example of a Kriegsmarine Destoyer Badge by the maker code "L/21" which represents Foerster & Barth.  Decent zinc based example by a maker you do not see often.  See pictures... (Pictures)

M251. Kriegsmarine Auxiliary Cruiser Badge by Foerster & Barth. The Kriegsmarine Auxiliary Cruiser Badge badge was instituted on April 24, 1941 by order of Grand Admiral Raeder to be given in recognition of feats demonstrated by the crews of armed merchant ships put to sea to harass Allied shipping. These ships would sail disguised as neutral cargo ships but were actually well armed and eventually took a huge toll on allied merchant vessels before most were eventually sunk themselves. The badge was awarded for participation in a successful voyage, demonstrating outstanding leadership abilities or being wounded during the course of a voyage. This is one of the rarer of the navy badges. This is a nice zinc based example with a flat pin used by Foerster and Barth.  The finish on this piece has faded rates at about 60 percent.  The globe is a separate piece made out of what appears to be nickel.  A nice example. See pictures... (Pictures)

M252. SA Sport's Badge for War Wounded by "M1/52".  Super looking SA Sport's Badge for War Wounded by "M1/52" given to those soldiers wounded in the war who met certain requirements in sports tests/competitions.  Much rarer than bronze/iron version for non-wounded personnel.  I have only seen these marked with two maker codes.  Both of these codes represent the same maker (Deschler of Munich).  See pictures... (Pictures)

M254.  Hitler Youth Marsksmanship Award by "RZM M1/120".  Super looking silver plated tomback-based Hitler Youth Marksmanship Award by "RZM M1/120".  In 1936 Reichsjugendfuhrer Baldur von Schirach instituted a series of shooting awards for Hitler Youth members in an effort to encourage competitive shooting.  Competitive shooting was intended as a sort of pre-military training.  Recipients of this award wore it on the left breast pocket of their uniform.  The badge was qualified for with the use of a small bore rifle and was given to Hitler Youth members over the age of 16 who had qualified by shooting well (five rounds in the prone position with support, five rounds in the prone position without support and five rounds in an unsupported kneeling position).  By late 1943 273,545 badges had been awarded.  This example is a nice early example with excellent enamel and wear to the silver plating that no doubt saw use by the original owner.  Indirect veteran purchase.  See pictures... (Pictures)

M258.  Kriegsmarine U-Boat Badge by "R.S."  Great looking wartime example of a U-boat badge produced by the Rudolf Souval firm of Vienna.  This example is zinc-based and much of the finish has faded but the example retains a pleasing look.  See pictures... (Pictures)

M260.  Luftwaffe Paratrooper Badge by "A" and "L/64".  Superb late war injection molded Luftwaffe Paratrooper Badge by Assmann.  This piece is marked "A" and "L/64", which are both manufacturer codes for Assmann as well as marked "2" on the wreath.  It is believed that the "2" represents the die used ..i.e. the second die for the wreath.  The hinge and the catch are cast in.  These late war paratrooper badges by Assmann are among my favorite paratrooper badges.  The finish on this paratrooper badge is strong.  Superb example of a late war paratrooper badge... (Pictures)

M262.  Kriegsmarine Minesweeper Badge.  Great looking early tomback-based example of a Kriegsmarine Minesweeper Badge.  The water plume retains about 85 percent of the silvering as does the water, and the wreath retains about 90 percent of the gilt wash.  A most pleasing example.  See pictures...

M288.  "Fordernde Mitglieder der SS" SS Financial Supporters Award Pin by "DESCHLER".  Scarce  "Fordernde Mitglieder der SS" SS Financial Supporters Award Pin by "DESCHLER" that was awarded to those who gave financial support to the SS.  The financial support could be provided by full SS members or others who sympathized with the SS.  The supporters would make regular contributions to the SS, I believe on a monthly basis.  The number on the back of the pin is "K42460" and the piece is well marked on the reverse.  The enamel is in excellent shape.  See pictures... (Pictures)

M290.  Kriegsmarine U-Boat Badge by "L/56".  Nice looking Kriegsmarine U-Boat Badge by "L/56"This example has crisp details and a good look.  The finish has faded but the badge has a pleasing appearance.  Scarce maker.  See pictures... (Pictures)

M305.  1939 Iron Cross Second Class Spange.  Super looking 1939 Iron Cross Second Class Spange.  This example has frosted recesses and polished highlights and is in excellent condition.  It would be hard to upgrade this piece.  I believe this piece is an unmarked example made by Deumer.  Excellent.  See pictures... (Pictures)

M320.  Collection of 5 Luftwaffe Flight Badges.  Superb Collection of 5 worn Luftwaffe Flight Badges.  These were brought back by the same vet and sold to a collector in the 1960's and then sold to another collector and then sold to me recently.  Either the vet or the first collector who had these glued the badges onto a piece of paper and framed the pieces.  I opened up the frame to see if anything else was written inside but did not find anything related to the cloth badges.  All of the examples are worn and were no doubt tunic-removed.  I believe the vet was at an area where Luftwaffe prisoners were processed and helped himself to insignia.  In this grouping you have a Combined Pilot/Observer's Badge, a Pilot's Badge, an Observer's Badge, a Paratrooper's Badge and a Combined Radio Operator's/Air Gunner's Badge.  This is a fantastic grouping with great provenance.  It is interesting to see how the vet misspelled "Frankfurt, Germany" as "Frankfort".  A one of a kind grouping that should be kept together by whoever buys this.  See pictures... (Pictures)

M323.  Panzer Assault Badge, Silver Grade, Hollow Back, in Cu-Pal, by "A".  This is an absolutely superb looking Panzer Assault Badge by Assmann made out of Cu-pal, which is a material of layered copper and aluminum that is then coated with a silver on one side.  This piece has a finish that rates at about 98 percent on the front and you will not find one nicer.  The reverse is not finished with the heavy silver plate as is common with Cu-pal made pieces.  You will also see SS metal cap insignia done with this process.  This is a fantastic example.  See pictures... (Pictures)

M325.  Panzer Assault Badge, Bronze Grade, "Daisy Version".  Super looking Panzer Assault Badge, Bronze Grade, "Daisy Version".  This is called the "Daisy Version" because you can see a flower on the right side on the grass field under the tracks.  This piece has a fantastic bronze finish that has a gilt color that rates about 90 percent.  This piece is zinc-based and the finish has really held up well.  See pictures... (Pictures)

M326.  War Merit Cross, First Class, with Swords by "L/18".  Zinc-based War Merit Cross, First Class, with Swords by "L/18".  The finish on this example has for the most part worn down to the zinc with the silver wash rating at about 5 to 10 percent.  This is the first time I have encountered this maker.  See pictures... (Pictures)

(Pictures)

M338.  Army/Waffen-SS General Assault Badge by "L/53".  Super looking Army/Waffen-SS General Assault Badge by "L/53" that retains over 95 percent of its original finish.  This badge is no doubt a late war badge that has survived in excellent condition.  This is the first badge by this maker that I have ever come across.  This is an extremely hard maker to find for a General Assault Badge.  Excellent.  It would be nearly impossible to upgrade this example.  See pictures... (Pictures)

M342.  Narvik Shield for Army, Luftwaffe and Waffen-SS.  This zinc-based example probably was un-issued and came off a salesman's sample board as did most if not all of this type.  Nice looking piece with great detail complete with all of the reverse pins.  Excellent... (Pictures)

M345.  SS Membership Badge by "HOFFSTATTER BONN GES. GESCH."  Rare SS Membership Badge by "HOFFSTATTER BONN GES. GESCH.".  This badge takes the form of a stickpin with black enamel with the SS runes.  The reverse has the maker's name as well as the number of the badge.  There is some wear to the enamel.  The pin is knurled.  This example is complete with the "keeper" to the bottom of the pin.  Rare... (Pictures)

M347.  Gau Munich Commemorative Badge by "DESCHLER & SOHN MUNCHEN".  This badge was created to commemorate the 1923 Munich Beer Hall Putsch where 3000 Nazis led by Adolf Hitler marched toward the center of Munich with the intention of overthrowing the Bavarian Government.  Within a few minutes 16 Nazis were shot dead and Hitler was arrested at this failed attempt to seize power.  These badges were awarded to survivors of this failed attempt.  This is a great looking example that is maker marked on the reverse, complete with original pin.  This example is made of bronze and has a pleasing patina.  This example has a strong bronze content hence the dark color and is of the earliest production as it has the "9" in the address of the maker's name.  There is some verdigris (green patina) on the reverse of the badge that I chose not to clean but this can be removed with warm water and soap. Excellent early original example... (Pictures) 

M350.  Cased Bronze Hitler Profile Table Medal.  Super looking Cased Bronze Hitler Table Medal that was awarded by the Franfurter Volkslatt newspaper to a person on the occasion of his 90th birthday.  Very impressive.  The medal is about 2 1/2 inches in diameter and is in excellent condition.  See pictures...

M356.  Gau Munich Commemorative Badge, "Rounded 3" Variant.  This badge was created to commemorate the 1923 Munich Beer Hall Putsch where 3000 Nazis led by Adolf Hitler marched toward the center of Munich with the intention of overthrowing the Bavarian Government.  Within a few minutes 16 Nazis were shot dead and Hitler was arrested at this failed attempt to seize power.  These badges were awarded to survivors of this failed attempt.  This is a great looking example that is maker marked on the reverse, complete with original pin.  This example is made of bronze and has a great look.  This is known as the "rounded 3" Variant because the tops of the threes are rounded and it is believed these examples were not made by the Deschler company.  These examples also have two "slash" marks on the reverse.  These are rarer than the Deschler examples.  Excellent scarce variant... (Pictures)

M358.  Kriegsmarine Destroyer Badge by "R.S.", Mint!  Absolutely mint-conditioned Kriegsmarine Destroyer Badge by "R.S." that would be impossible to upgrade.  This example is the finest piece by this maker that I have ever had or seen and is for the collector who wants only the finest pieces in his collection.  This is a superb piece!  This example retains all of its original finish.  See pictures...  (Pictures)

M359.  Kriegsmarine Destroyer Badge by "4", Superb! Fantastic looking early destroyer badge by a rare maker.  I believe this is the rarest maker you will find for a destroyer badge.  I have only handled three and this is by far the nicest one I have had.  This piece has most of its original finish and looks to have never been worn but does have some minor storage wear.  An interesting thing you will see is that the hook used by this maker stretches down almost to the ship and if you look closely you can see a guide line where it was supposed to have been clipped (I have seen this on all examples I have handled) yet these hooks were never clipped.  This is a textbook example by this maker.  I sincerely doubt you will find a nicer example.  Excellent.  See pictures.. (Pictures)  

M362.  "Fordernde Mitglieder der SS" SS Financial Supporters Award Pin by "DESCHLER".  Scarce  "Fordernde Mitglieder der SS" SS Financial Supporters Award Pin by "DESCHLER" that was awarded to those who gave financial support to the SS.  The financial support could be provided by full SS members or others who sympathized with the SS.  The supporters would make regular contributions to the SS, I believe on a monthly basis.  The number on the back of the pin is "A17293" and the piece is well marked on the reverse.  The enamel is in excellent shape.  See pictures... (Pictures)

(Pictures)

M380.  1939 Berlin SA Competition Table Medal.  This medal is for an SA Sport's Competition that was held in Berlin in 1939 and was given out as a prize.  This piece is about 3 3/4 inches in size.  See pictures... (Pictures)

M389.  Luftwaffe Flak Badge in Titled Case.   Nice looking zinc based Luftwaffe Flak Badge in Titled Case.  The badge has a cast in rounded hinge and a cast in catch.  The company that made this badge also made early Luftwaffe Flak Badges.  The top of the case has come loose from the bottom as the two halves were held together by a thin piece of blue paper which is very flimsy.  This can be repaired but I would just leave it as is.  The case has some wear to it but is in overall pretty good shape.  This is a pretty nice set.  See pictures... (Pictures)

M390.  Kriegsmarine High Seas Fleet Badge, French Made by Baqueville.  The French firm of Baqueville created a number of Naval Badges for the Kriegsmarine which had bases in Occupied France.  All French made German Navy badges utilized the same hinge, catch and pin assemblies.  These badges are all die forged and all are zinc based.  Rarer than their German made counterparts.  See pictures...

(Pictures)

M574.  Kriegsmarine Coastal Artillery Badge by "Z".  Nice looking Naval Coastal Artillery Badge by "Z".  This badge was instituted by Grand Admiral Raeder on June 24, 1941 to be awarded to individuals in Naval Coastal Artillery Gun Crews either for individual acts of merit or for the actions of the gun crew.  This badge maker mark "Z" is not referenced in any references but is absolutely authentic.  I have for example recently had a Minesweeper Badge that was marked with a number that was textbook and not in any references.  If anybody has any information on this marking I will include it in this description.  It is also possible that this mark is some sort of factory coding.  At any rate this is a rare Coastal Artillery Badge and probably either one of a kind or one of a small batch in existence.  See pictures...

These ships would sail disguised as neutral cargo ships but were actually well armed and eventually took a huge toll on allied merchant vessels before most were eventually sunk themselves. The badge was awarded for participation in a successful voyage, demonstrating outstanding leadership abilities or being wounded during the course of a voyage. This is one of the rarer of the navy badges. This is a nice zinc based example with round needle type pin made by the Vienna firm of Rudolf Souval and so marked with their angular style "R.S." maker mark.  This badge has a good look and recently came out of the woodwork.

M785. Kriegsmarine Auxiliary Cruiser Badge by "R.S." and "L/58". The Kriegsmarine Auxiliary Cruiser Badge badge was instituted on April 24, 1941 by order of Grand Admiral Raeder to be given in recognition of feats demonstrated by the crews of armed merchant ships put to sea to harass Allied shipping. These ships would sail disguised as neutral cargo ships but were actually well armed and eventually took a huge toll on allied merchant vessels before most were eventually sunk themselves. The badge was awarded for participation in a successful voyage, demonstrating outstanding leadership abilities or being wounded during the course of a voyage. This is one of the scarcer of the navy badges. This is a nice zinc based example with round needle type pin made by the Vienna firm of Rudolf Souval and so marked with their angular style "R.S." maker mark along with their "L/58" LDO number.  It is hard to find the Souval Auxiliary Cruiser Badges with both markings.  This badge has a strong finish with over 70 percent of the gilt remaining, with most of the wear being between the 8 o'clock and 11 o'clock positions on the wreath.  This is a very scarce maker mark combination.  See pictures...

M818.  Kriegsmarine U-Boat Combat Clasp, Bronze Grade by "SCHWERIN".  This badge was introduced by the Oberkommando der Kriegsmarine on May 15, 1944 at the urging of Admiral Donitz.  The award did not have a formal set of criteria for determination of bestowal.  The recommendation for awarding the badge was left to the individual U-boat commander.    The U-Boat commander could base his proposal for awarding the badge upon the number of sorties the sailor went on, bravery at sea, performance, level of risk involved etc.  These badges were all awarded late in the war and as a result are very rare.   This badge is zinc-based and has a bronze finish that rates at about 85 percent.  The finish has some bubbling visible on the front and reverse.  This piece has all the features you want to see in an original example.  A superb original honest example.  See Pictures...

M873.  Numbered Panzer Assault Badge for 25 Assaults, Silver Grade, by "JFS".  Nice looking Numbered Panzer Assault Badge for 25 Assaults, Silver Grade, by "JFS".  I have carefully examined this badge, as you should with all numbered badges, and it conforms 100 percent to an original JFS 25 grade numbered Panzer Assault Badge.  Most of the numbered assault badges that you see on the market these days are copies, but with a little bit of study you can distinguish the originals from the copies.  If you can live with the repaired catch you can have my piece for half of its market value.  The catch on this example no-doubt broke because this piece saw wear.  I would rather have a combat worn example such as this with a repaired catch than a minty bogus piece.  See pictures... (Pictures)

M902.  Imperial German Police Warrant Disc for "UEBACH".  Rare Imperial German Police Warrant Disc for "UEBACH", Germany.  The town of Uebach-Palenberg, as it is known today, is located on the German border with The Netherlands and is about 15 km north of Aachen.  Uebach was merged with the towns of Scherpenseel and Frelenberg to create a municipality in 1935.  This disc pre-dates the Gestapo and Kripo Police Warrant Discs.  The local police agency would buy this disc from a police supply house and engrave the police agency name, and often the officer's number, on the disc.  This warrant disc was used in the same way as a Gestapo or Kripo Warrant Disc. This piece measures 39.5 mm in diameter and weighs 19 grams and is die struck.  See pictures... (Pictures)

JUNCKER BERLIN SW 68".  The silver plated finish on this example rates at over 97 percent.  I have not dipped my badge in silver cleaner as some people do to give it a bright shiney look as I choose not to play with things, but the original silver finish is mostly all there having a pleasing dark patina.  This is an in-direct vet purchase.  The maker mark is correct for zinc pieces by this maker although you do not want to see the "68" on early Juncker badges.  See pictures...

M1281.  Army/Waffen-SS Anti-Partisan Badge, Silver Grade.  This Anti-Partisan Badge, Silver Grade is a textbook example with the weight and measurements being correct.  This example was a recent indirect vet-estate pickup and this was the first such example that I have gotten out of the woodwork in probably over a year and a half.  This piece retains only about 10 percent of the silver finish, but finish loss is common with these examples.  Originals such as this are extremely hard to find and this would be a great piece to add to your collection.  See pictures... (Pictures)

M1282.  Luftwaffe Air Gunner/Flight Engineer Badge, in Aluminum by "Juncker".  This Luftwaffe Air Gunner/Flight Engineer Badge, in Aluminum by "Juncker" has a period repaired catch and hinge and the eagle has been period professionally re-attached.  Aluminum Luftwaffe Badges were only utilized for a very short period and are quite scarce.  This piece has a lot of character.  This example came from the same estate as the above Anti-Partisan Badge.  See pictures...

M1283.  Army/Waffen-SS Anti-Partisan Badge, Silver Grade, Hollowback Version!!!  I believe this Army/Waffen-SS Anti-Partisan Badge, Silver Grade to be the rarest of all of the construction variants of this badge.  This badge was a recent pickup by yours truly and is only the 5th example known according to a thread on a well respected and frequented internet forum, although I do believe there are more than 5 badges extant.  This example retains less than 10 percent of the original silver finish.  The reverse assembly is magnetic and the badge is made from fine zinc.  It is most probable that the production run on this style was limited due to the die flaws which are evident on the reverse as well as on the lower right front.  This is a badge that would be the highlight of any advanced war badge collection.  Extremely Rare.  This badge is referenced in a book on the subject and an example was once in the prestigious David Littlejohn Collection.  See pictures... (Pictures)

M1290.  "SS FM" SS Financial Supporter's Stickpin.  These SS Financial Supporters Stickpins were ground recovered together in Germany.  When the country was occupied by the allies many items with swastikas were buried as per order of the local military government in a "de-Nazification" process.  These pieces no-doubt came from an SS office at that time and were then buried with other items and were recently recovered.  See pictures...

(Pictures)

M1398.  Army/Waffen-SS Panzer Assault Badge for "50" Engagements, Silver Grade, by "G.B.".  Great looking Army/Waffen-SS Panzer Assault Badge for "50" Engagements, Silver Grade, by "G.B.".  This example has an honest worn look and has all of the specifications that you want to see on an original badge.  This example utilizes solid rivets, although you will more often see hollow donut rivets with this maker, and I have also seen no rivets (just solder) utilized on some of the badges by this maker.  This is a great looking badge with an honest combat worn look that I recently obtained.  The "gunky stuff" on the back is zinc pest and it will clean up with some vaseline left on the area for 24 hours, but I left it as I found it.  A rare original!  See pictures... (Pictures)

M4294.  Sardinia Shield.  Good looking and hard to find original Sardinia Shield.  I found the following information regarding the shield in a thread on the Wehrmacht-Awards Forum, "The 90TH Panzer Grenadier Division was formed on the Mediterranean island of Sardinia in June 1943, and for a short time was called "Division Sardinia".  In July 1943 a semi-official cap badge was introduced for wear by divisional personnel. Stamped sheet metal, silver washed badge in the form of the island of Sardinia with a superimposed diagonally angled broad sword. The island has embossed and impressed topographical features and the embossed names of two of the major towns on the island, "Olbia" and "Cagliari". The badge was bestowed along with a certificate, which was to be placed in the Soldbuch, that stated the individual, as a member of the 90TH Panzer Grenadier Division, had the authorization to wear the badge.  A photographed example can be seen in J. Halcomb, W.P.B.R. Saris’s and Otto Spronk’s book, "Headgear of Hitler’s Germany", volume 1 page 97.  Of Note:  The 90TH Panzer Grenadier Division was the second division to be allotted the numerical designation 90.  The first 90TH Division was originally formed as the Afrika Division z.b.V., (for special purposes), in Libya in late 1941, and soon re-designated the 90TH Light Division.  The 90TH Light Division fought in North Africa from its inception in 1941 until it was destroyed in Tunisia acting as Rommel’s rear-guard in May 1943.  The 90TH Panzer Grenadier Division was transferred to Sicily and on to northern Italy in the fall of 1943 and was employed in all the major campaigns in Italy including, Cassino, Anzio, the Caesar and Gothic lines and the battle of the Po River until it was destroyed at Bologna in April 1945.  Also of Note: For a brief period in early 1944 the division was under command of Generalleutnant Gerhard Graf von Schwerin who was responsible for the semi-official Windhund, (Greyhound), cap badge of the 116TH Panzer Division."  See pictures...

KM0037.  Kriegsmarine U-Boat Combat Clasp, Silver Grade by "SCHWERIN", Vaulted.  This badge was introduced by the Oberkommando der Kriegsmarine on November 24, 1944 (the Bronze Version was introduced on May 15th of the same year) at the urging of Admiral Donitz.  The award did not have a formal set of criteria for determination of bestowal.  The recommendation for awarding the badge was left to the individual U-boat commander, although 180 days of service at sea were required for award of the Silver Grade Badge.    The U-Boat commander could base his proposal for awarding the badge upon the number of sorties the sailor went on, bravery at sea, performance, level of risk involved etc.  These badges were all awarded late in the war and as a result are very rare.  This example has been vaulted by the original owner.  This was sometimes done with some badges such as the Minesweeper Badge so that the badge would fit snug against the uniform.   This is the first time I have seen a Silver Grade U-Boat Combat Clasp vaulted in such a beautiful manner.  There was no damage done to the badge during the vaulting and the job looks professionally done... perhaps by a jeweler.  This is just how the piece was brought back from Germany.  This badge is zinc-based and has a silver finish that rates at about 90 to 95 percent with frosting to the recesses.  The finish has some minor bubbling visible up close.  This piece has all the features you want to see in an original example.  A superb example that will no doubt be the center-piece of any Naval Badge collection.  See Pictures...

B027.  Fire Police Officer's Belt Buckle by "OLC ges. gesch.".  This buckle is identical in design to the standard police officer's buckle but is finished in a burnished black and was worn by officers in the Fire Protection Police.  This example is made of aluminum which would date it to the late 1930's and was produced by Overhoff and Cie.  This buckle was prohibited for wear after 1940 and at that time was replaced by the regular police officer's buckle therefore making this buckle somewhat scarce... (Pictures) 

B028.  RLB Enlisted Man's Belt Buckle, First Pattern.  Super looking RLB (Air Raid Protection League or Reichsluftschutzbund) Enlisted Man's Belt Buckle, First Pattern.  This buckle was introduced in March of 1933 and was worn until replaced by the second pattern RLB buckle in the late 1930's.  This example seems to be stamped from nickel (or of nickel plated steel) and is an early example probably produced soon after introduction of this pattern belt buckle.  This buckle was also at times erroneously worn by members of the German Air Sport Federation or DLV as the two designs are quite similar with this buckle having down-swept wings while the official DLV buckle had level wings.  See pictures... (Pictures)

B030.  NSDAP Youth Belt Buckle.  This buckle is similar in design to the SA belt buckle but is smaller and is listed with the designation "NSDAP Jugend" in early sales catalogs.  It is believed that these buckles were worn as early as the late 1920's.  This buckle is maker marked.  See pictures...

B036.  Lufwaffe Enlisted Man's Belt Buckle with Leather Tab.  Nice worn Lufwaffe Enlisted Man's Belt Buckle with Leather Tab.  Most of the dark blue paint has worn from the front of this piece and no doubt this piece saw action.  The tab is dated "1942" and there is a very light maker marking in an oval that is hard to make out,  however  the maker is Assmann according to my good friend  and  buckle collector Rudi.  See pictures...

B052.  Hitler Youth Belt Buckle by "RZM M5/276".  Scarce late-war silver paint over steel Hitler Youth Belt Buckle by "RZM M5/276".  This buckle is interesting in that the "M5" code associated with accoutrements is used rather than the usual "M4" code for buckles and also the prongs are welded directly onto the prong bar with no prong bar sleeve ever being used.  This is absolutely correct for this maker.  Scarce documented late-war variation.  Excellent...

B092.  Late-War Zinc Police EM/NCO's Belt Buckle with Leather Tab.  Absolutely last-ditch effort injection molded Late-War Zinc Police EM/NCO's Belt Buckle with Leather Tab.  This piece is probably the lowest quality production you will ever find on any Third Reich Belt Buckle, but yet this piece just "talks to you."  The manufacturer did not even bother to stamp the leather with a maker coding.  The zinc, when dried, has left slight warps in the buckle, no doubt due to the low quality of the metal.  This is a fascinating study of late war production, and no-doubt would seem like a total copy to the amateur collector.  Rare late war example.  This came in a grouping of three, no-doubt picked up by the GI at a factory etc.  Fascinating!  See pictures...

(Pictures)

H013.  EM/NCO'S Heer M42 Overseas Cap.  Nice looking EM/NCO'S Heer/Army M42 Overseas Cap.  This cap was introduced as a replacement for the M34 overseas cap with the main difference being it offered an extra piece of wool that pulled down and protected the neck and ears.  Recent indirect veteran purchase.  One of the buttons on the front was replaced at some time and put on somewhat crooked.  I chose not to restore it as I left it in "as found" condition.  The eagle and cockade are separate pieces.  This piece has no moth damage and has wear where you would expect to see it.  The example is marked on the inside.  Super piece that has never been in a collection.  See pictures...

(Pictures) 

H022.  Army EM/NCO's Artillery Visor Cap.  This Army EM/NCO's Artillery Visor Cap made by Erel is made of a high quality doeskin wool and does have a good amount of moth tracking that does not go all the way through the wool but is nevertheless present.  The moth tracking is not too detractive.  This piece has a good saddle shape.  This hat is of a higher quality than normally encountered.  See pictures... (Pictures)

H023.  Army EM/NCO's Engineer's Visor Cap, Mint!  I counted 3 moth nips on this Army EM/NCO's Engineer's Visor Cap.  This piece is in mint-un-issued condition save for some storage wear and some minor crazing to the leather.  This piece is well marked on the inside of the leather sweatband to the distributor and maker of the cap.  This example even has the original tissue under the visor that holds the shape of the example.  This piece was possibly a store display piece.  Excellent.  See pictures... (Pictures)

H024.  Army M-42 Single Decal Helmet.  This Army M-42 Single Decal Helmet helmet is a small size being a ET60 size shell.  The paint is pretty good rating at over 85 percent.  The decal rates at about 30 percent and the liner has some wear.  This is a recent pickup that was never in a collection.  The liner has never been out of the shell.  See pictures... (Pictures)

H025.  Army/Waffen-SS M42 Helmet.  Nice looking Army/Waffen-SS M42 Helmet complete with its original liner and chinstrap and much of the original painted finish remaining.  The liner has some wear and tears.  This helmet has the earlier shinier smooth almost pea-green paint rather than the later matte green textured paint you normally see on M-42 helmets which is unusual to find on an M42 helmet.  Nice original example of a late war helmet.  See pictures... (Pictures)

H026c.  Army Transportation Officer's Visor Cap.  Nice quality Army Transportation Officer's Visor Cap that is made from doeskin wool.  There is one moth nip at the front left of the cap as you are looking at it and another at the rear that is not visible unless you lift the overhanging top portion of the cap up.  There is some extremely light moth tracking on the top of the visor that looks is not too detractive but is nonetheless present.  This is a decent looking cap.  See pictures... (Pictures)

H027.  Heer AfrikaKorps Tropical Pith Helmet, First Pattern.  Nice looking  Heer AfrikaKorps Pith Helmet, First Pattern that is in overall very good condition.  The chinstrap appears to have had cracked and been glued together.  This damage is under the visor and is barely noticeable but is present.  I have photographed the damage.  The leather sweatband is marked "Made In Germany" as this is one of the stockpile of these original helmets that were found in storage in Germany in the 1960's and then sold on the US market to collectors... (Pictures)

H028.  Kriegsmarine Coastal Artillery EM/NCO's Overseas Cap.  Nice looking worn Kriegsmarine Coastal Artillery EM/NCO's Overseas Cap.  This was a recent pick-up that came out of the woodwork.  This example has honest wear and a good look.  I have not been able to see any size markings on this piece.  See pictures...

(Pictures)

H034.  Waffen-SS EM/NCO's Overseas Cap.  Great looking salty Waffen-SS EM/NCO's Overseas Cap that has a true salty combat-worn "been-there" look.  This cap has honest wear patterns.  The wool is worn down where the cap was exposed to weathering, but is not worn where it was not exposed to the elements.  The piece has correct features that I will not go into and has provenance going back to an old collection before the abundance of modern fakes that are flooding the market.  This piece is truly an outstanding example.  There is some moth tracking to this piece and a few moth nips at the top of the cap.  I would rather see a cap like this with honest wear than one with artificially enhanced age patterns or a mint piece.  I have posted plenty of pictures.  You just do not see original examples such as this come on the market anymore although you see a lot of questionable examples.  Outstanding!  See pictures...

C231.  SS Bevo Sleeve Eagle on Piece of Tunic Cloth.  Super looking SS Bevo Sleeve Eagle on Piece of Tunic Cloth.  The front side of the piece of wool that this piece was on shows wear to the nap while the rear side shows little wear.  Also, there is a portion of the eagle that is torn by the right wing and if you lift this you will see no wear to the nap.  This is something you like to see as it indicates that somebody did not just take an old piece of cloth and sew an eagle onto it.  This came out of a very old collection and is 100 percent correct.   Outstanding salty vet cutoff!  See pictures...

C280.  Bullion SS Skull Cut from Horizontal Totenkopf Tab Used for Cap.  This Bullion SS Skull was cut from an early Horizontal SS Totenkopf Skull Tab.  This was done either by the original owner to be worn as the skull on his SS Cap or by the vet...I do not know, but I know that these skulls were surely cut down from tabs to be used on caps.  This piece was in two collections and I traced it back to a vet estate lot where it came in a box along with some US insignia.  This skull exhibits correct construction techniques so even if you do not intend to buy it you may want to save the pictures for study.  A rare piece of SS cloth.  See pictures...

(Pictures)

C328.  Waffen-SS Collar Tab, Bevo weave.  Super looking Bevo style SS collar tab in mint condition.  This piece is in mint condition.  The piece has the tan fiber backing that you also see on the late-war bevo pieces as found at Dachau.  See pictures... (Pictures)

C368.  SS EM/NCO'S Bevo Cloth Cap Skull.  This super looking SS EM/NCO'S Bevo Cloth Cap Skull was removed from a cap.  The way this piece was applied to the cap was that it was first applied to a piece of cotton and then the entire piece was applied to the cap.  This technique was used at times rather than sewing the insignia directly onto the cap.  This piece came with C369.  This is an outstanding skull.  See pictures... (Pictures)

C369.  SS EM/NCO'S Bevo Cloth Cap Eagle.  This super looking SS EM/NCO'S Bevo Cloth Cap Eagle was removed from the same cap as C368 as the cap was too far gone to salvage.  The way this piece was applied to the cap was that it was first applied to a piece of cotton and then the entire piece was applied to the cap.  This technique was used at times rather than sewing the insignia directly onto the cap.  This is an outstanding eagle.  See pictures... (Pictures)

C372.  "AFRIKAKORPS" Cuff Title, Tunic-Removed.  Absolutely super looking "AFRIKAKORPS" Cuff Title that has been removed from a tunic.  This piece was a recent indirect vet-pickup along with a tropical army belt buckle with webbed tab listed in the belt buckle section.  This cuff title was authorized for wear by members of Rommel's Afrikakorps in July of 1941.  This was a formation insignia and was only authorized for wear while the wearer participated in the North African Campaign and as such worn examples are extremely rare while mint examples, as well as reproductions are relatively common.  This title has the edges folded over and my research indicates that this was done by officers although this could also be attributed to personal preference by the wearer, however at any rate this is an outstanding example.  This cuff title is 13 1/2 inches in length.  Rare and outstanding worn "been there" example!  See pictures... (Pictures)

C391.  Panzer Collar Tab and Panzer Shoulder Strap.  This Panzer Collar Tab and Panzer Shoulder Strap both came together in a box of moth eaten cloth and medals/badges during a recent cleanout of a vet's house.  I did my best to clean the dust off the pieces by gently pulling the dust/dirt off with tape.  The moths did a good job on much of the pink piping on the black strap as well as the wool on the strap.  The moths also got into the pink piping on the Panzer Collar tab and the wool itself.  I would however like to say that original panzer collar tabs and shoulder straps with veteran provenance, such as I have here are extremely rare and that most of the pieces out there are simply quality copies.  One of the prongs on the skull is broken off.  A rare set.  See pictures... (Pictures)

(Pictures)

C402.  SS Enlisted Man’s Machine Embroidered "Pumpkin-Head" Totenkopf (Death’s Head) Collar Tab, Collar Removed.  SS Enlisted Man’s Machine Embroidered Totenkopf (Death’s Head) Collar Tab that has been removed from a collar.  This piece no-doubt saw the war.  I just did a check and found a similar pattern tab on another site at 1400 dollars.  Anyway, if you can live with the highly desirable combat wear you can have my piece for less.  The damage on the right side no-doubt resulted when the GI removed the piece from the collar.  This tab is called the "pumpkin-head" version.  See pictures... (Pictures)

C403.  SS Bevo Sport's Shirt Runic Patch w/early cloth RZM Tag, Shirt Removed.  Super looking worn SS Bevo Sport's Shirt Runes Patch w/early cloth RZM Tag by "RZM 29/36 SS".  This early worn example has a pleasing look.  See pictures... (Pictures)

(Pictures)

C434.  Postschutz Bevo Arm Insignia, Tunic Removed.  Rare Postschutz Bevo Arm Insignia.  This example was worn and has a nice look to it.  These arm shields came in a few different patterns that are all very similar.  Some of the patterns do not have the orange color while others do.  The Postschutz were responsible for the protection of the mail and eventually came under the control of the SS in 1942. This example was worn on the upper left arm of the tunic.  See pictures... (Pictures)

I007.  Early SS/SA Cap Eagle by "RZM 63".   Early SS/SA Hat Eagle by "RZM 63".  This maker also made some early nickel SS Enlisted Men's Belt buckles and it is very likely that this eagle could have been part of the same SS contract that produced the buckles.  The reverse has an interesting two prong assembly rather than the four prong assembly you see more often.  The prongs are not broken and are intact and original in every way.  Excellent...

I033.  Panzer Collar Tab Skull in aluminum.  Super looking Panzer Collar Tab Skull in aluminum.  At first glance this piece looks as if it is missing a metal pin as it has one at the top and at one side, but when you examine the piece you notice there is no provision for a pin at the other side.  Interesting variation in construction that is desirable.  See pictures... (Pictures)

I034.  SS Visor Cap Skull by "RZM M1/52".  Super looking and highly desirable SS Visor Cap Skull by "RZM M1/52".  This example is made out of cupal, which is a material made out of layered aluminum and copper that is then silver plated.  This material was used early on.  This skull retains most of the finish which rates at about 95 percent.  One prong is missing on the reverse but this could be repaired by a professional jeweler although I would leave it as is.  This is the real thing and these are getting extremely hard to find.  See pictures... (Pictures)

I035.  SS Visor Cap Eagle by "RZM M1/17".  Super looking SS Visor Cap Eagle maker marked to "'RZM M1/17".  This piece is made out of cupal, a material of layered aluminum and copper that is then silver plated.  This piece retains about 95 percent of the silver plating which is still bright.  The silver plating has a frosted look.  It is interesting to note that when the finisher was working on the piece he drilled the two holes at the sides of the eagle's head off to the left side and the piece still passed strict SS RZM control standards.  No doubt the piece passed un-noticed due to the inattention of an examiner.  This is a rare maker to find for an SS cap eagle, as well a rare construction style for an SS cap eagle, in addition you have the error in the placement of the two holes all combined on one piece to make this a super example that is one of a kind.  One pin came off but is still present.  See pictures... (Pictures)

I036.  Luftwaffe Officer's Summer Tunic Breast Eagle in Aluminum.  Super looking Luftwaffe Officer's Breast eagle for the summer tunic.  Nice pre-war example made from aluminum with a nicely crimped in catch and hinge.  See pictures.  Excellent... (Pictures)  

I037.  SS Visor Cap Skull by "RZM M1/24".  Super looking SS Visor Cap Skull maker marked to "'RZM M1/24".  This example is made of aluminum and has crimped-in brass pins.  This example would date to the late 1930's.  You just do not see original examples around anymore, especially with the pins intact.  This was a recent indirect veteran pickup.  Aluminum skulls are the rarest variety of all SS skulls.  This is a really good looking piece.  See pictures... (Pictures)

I038.  SS Visor Cap Eagle by "SS 475/39 RZM".  Extremely rare zinc-based SS Visor Cap Eagle by "SS 475/39 RZM".  When the "SS" runic marked copies of SS visor cap eagles and skulls came out in the 1980's and fooled many collectors these scarce eagles with this code were the basis for the reproduction eagles and skulls.  These original eagles are extremely rare and are of a totally different construction than the originals.  This example has no pins and is an upgrade.  Extremely Rare.  See pictures... (Pictures)

I045.  SS Visor Cap Eagle by "E.S. PF.".  This is an extremely rare SS Visor Cap Eagle made by "E.S. PF.".  This example is made of cupal which is a material made of layered copper and aluminum.  This eagle is in mint condition.  "E.S.

I048.  Police Shako Eagle by "B & N".  Nice looking Police Shako Eagle by "B & N".  This eagle is about 6 1/2 inches long and makes a nice display and would have went on an Enlisted Man's or Non-Commissioned Officer's Shako.  See pictures... (Pictures)

I054.  Waffen-SS Pith Helmet National Shield Cap Badge by "JFS 42".  Rare painted-zinc Waffen-SS Pith Helmet National Shield Cap Badge by "JFS 42".  This is a rare piece of Waffen-SS insignia that went on one side of the pith helmet and the SS runes shield would have went on the other side.  This is a recent pick-up and was never in a collection.  This salty example appears to have been on a pith helmet.  Rare!  See pictures... (Pictures)

I055.  SS Visor Cap Eagle by "RZM M1/17".  Super looking SS Visor Cap Eagle maker marked to "'RZM M1/17".  This piece is made out of cupal, a material of layered aluminum and copper that is then silver plated.  This piece retains about 95 percent of the silver plating which is still bright.  The silver plating has a frosted look.  This is a rare maker to find for an SS cap eagle, as well a rare construction style for an SS cap eagle.  One pin is gone but this could be replaced.  A fine rare original example.  Outstanding!  See pictures... (Pictures)

I083.  Metal Edelweiss on Black Cloth Diamond with RZM Tag.  This interesting piece came with some SS cloth.  If the backround cloth were brown this piece would have been worn by an Austrian SA Unit.  I have no explanation for the black backround cloth.  At any rate I blacklighted the white stitching and it does not glow.  This piece could have a possible association with the Hitler Youth, SA or even the SS... (Pictures)

I089c.  Lot of 2 SS Cap Skulls.  This lot of 2 SS cap skulls contains an early silver-over tomback skull by "D & S GES. GESCH RZM" which is of the earliest production for this style skull and a wartime zinc example by "S P 40".  The consignor wants to sell these two skulls as a single lot so I can not separate the skulls.  See pictures... (Pictures)

I090.  Army Cap Eagle, First Pattern.  Nice looking Early Army Cap Eagle, First Pattern.  This piece is of the earliest quality being struck in nickel.  See pictures... (Pictures)

I091.  Luftwaffe Officer's Summer Tunic Breast Eagle in Aluminum.  Super looking Luftwaffe Officer's Breast eagle for the summer tunic.  Nice pre-war example made from aluminum and marked "A" and "D.R.G.M" for Assmann.  It is believed that the aluminum examples with just an "A"  that you see all over the place may be postwar.  This example is correct and was a recent vet pickup.  Excellent... (Pictures)

I094.  SS Visor Cap Eagle by "RZM SS 155/42".  Super looking SS Visor Cap Eagle maker marked to "'RZM SS 155/42".  This piece is made out of zinc that has then haD a silver wash applied to the front of the eagle.  This piece was produced by the Assmann firm in 1942 and would have most likely been worn on a Wafffen-SS cap.  This piece is in excellent condition with over 96 percent of the silver-wash remaining to the front of the eagle.  These pieces were marked in very small font on the reverse left center of the eagle.  This piece is complete with all three original pins.  An outstanding example.  Rare.  See pictures... (Pictures)

I098.  Panzer Armored Reconnaissance Unit ID Disc.  Nice looking zinc Panzer Armored Reconnaissance Unit ID Disc.  I have applied talc powder to the piece for the photograph so that you can easily see the text, but this easily comes off by shaking the piece.  See pictures... (Pictures)

I104.  Army Traditions Cap Skull.  This was worn on the visor cap between the wreath and the eagle.  This is the officer's version.  This skull was an indirect vet buy.  See pictures... (Pictures)

I116.  SS Cap Skull in Aluminum by "RZM M1/52".  This recent indirect vet-pickup SS Cap Skull in Aluminum by "RZM M1/52" is a key skull to have if you collect SS cap skulls.  This is one of the harder versions to find and has the correct crimped in reverse prongs.  The prongs are in aluminum which is correct for some of the Deschler made aluminum skulls and even eagles.  One of the prongs is missing and in attempt to repair the prong the vet drilled a hole that goes through to the front of the skull.  A rare skull never before in a collection.  See pictures... (Pictures)

I119.  SS Overseas Cap Skull by "SS RZM 1194/39".  Rare Aluminum SS Overseas Cap Skull by "SS RZM 1194/39".  This piece is of correct three piece construction with the skull being crimped over the backing plate and the loop being a separate piece from the backing plate.  This piece is one of the scarcer of SS Cap Skull buttons and the first one I have had in a long time by this maker.  This is a great looking skull.  See pictures... (Pictures)

I122.  SS Visor Cap Eagle by "SS RZM 155/36".  Nice looking SS Visor Cap Eagle maker marked to "'RZM SS 155/36".  This piece is made out of cupal which is layered copper and aluminum.  This eagle was made by the Assmann firm in 1936.  The maker mark on this example is on the left rear center.  See pictures... (Pictures)  

I137.  Very Early NSDAP Cap Badge.  This cap badge measures 2 3/4 inches high by 1 3/4 inches wide when you include the pin portion.  Do not confuse this badge with a stickpin.  This badge has a pin and three prongs on the reverse.  This is only the second such cap badge I have seen and this badge pre-dates the RZM system.  I would date this badge to about the late 1920's because of the style.  Rare.  See pictures... (Pictures)

I138.  Diplomatic Corps Visor Cap Eagle.  This eagle measures 4 3/4 inches wide and is "RZM" marked on the reverse.  See pictures... (Pictures)

I173.  SS Visor Cap Skull by "RZM M1/52".  This SS Visor Cap Skull by "RZM M1/52" is constructed of cupal, which is layered copper and aluminum that is then finished with silver.  This example has a strong finish.  The upper part of the skull has sustained some damage but this is not detractive.  Both pins are intact.  This is an honest looking example with a good look and a great "combat worn" appearance.  Rare.  See pictures... (Pictures)

I235.  Third Reich Airport Manager's Insignia Badge.  This Airport Manager's Insignia Badge measures 8.8 cm wide by 3.5 cm high and would have been worn on a cap band.  I have seen this insignia in pin-back form also and from what I have read this was worn prior to 1938.  See pictures...

F010.  Third Reich National War Flag Made in Occupied Holland.  Minty-super looking maker-marked Third Reich National War Flag (Reichskriegsflagge).  This example has the size marking and is roughly six foot by 3 and 1/2 foot in size as well as being marked to the maker in Occupied Holland.  The size is marked in Centimeters on the flag bunting (100 by 170 cm).  This example is in superb condition and has absolutely no moth holes and will be impossible to upgrade.  This piece was a recent indirect veteran purchase.  This is one of the finest examples I have owned.  You usually find these pieces with moth damage.  This flag has bright colors that are printed on the wool and has enforcing stitching going around the sides as well as enforced corners.  The flag has some folds from storage which can be ironed out carefully should the buyer choose, but I would leave it as it sat for 60 years..  Maker marked to a company in "HELMOND (HOLLAND)".  Superb example with only storage wear.  See pictures...

At any rate if this vehicle pennant were complete you would be looking at a 500 dollar piece.  This piece measures about 12 inches by 8 1/2 inches.  This piece has some snags on the front but at any rate still makes a nice display and you can have it for...

F038.  "NSBO" Flag Pole Top.  Great looking "NSBO" Flag Pole Top.  The "NSBO" was an early worker's organization whose leaders were purged during the purge of the SA leadership in favor of the DAF worker's organization as the NSBO was at that time dominated by leftwingers in the NSDAP.  The NSBO continued to exist until the end of the war but was not as powerful as the DAF and therefore these pole tops are much scarcer than the DAF examples.  This heavy piece has a thick nickel finish.  There is a thin layer of nicotine over the nickel as the vet was a smoker but this will clean up easily with some metal polish or other cleaner should the buyer choose.  This piece is in excellent condition for its age.   This piece stands 9 inches tall.  Impressive!  See pictures...

These books were meant to be used short term and thus they were produced with fragile materials; thus, finding intact examples of these books can be challenging. These books are a valuable resource for the historian and collector!".  See pictures... (Pictures)

Uniforms

UN001.  Army Second Lieutenant Pioneer Officer's Tunic.  Super looking tailor made Army Second Lieutenant Pioneer Officer's Tunic.  This tunic is in great shape for its age.  I do not see any moth damage to the piece, and there is only very minor wear from use.  The shoulder boards are original but they appear to be but everything else appears original to the tunic.  The tunic has a dagger hanger and an opening for the dagger hangers.  There are a number of loops for medals and badges as apparently this officer was well decorated.  The tunic has an Iron Cross Second Class ribbon sewn through the second button-hole as well as some ribbon bars.  Correct zigzag stitch behind the collar.  This is a fine combat tailor made example.  See pictures... (Pictures)

UN004.   Luftwaffe Signals Flight School Unterfeldwebel Rank Tunic.  Super looking Luftwaffe Signals Flight School Unterfeldwebel Rank Tunic.  This piece is in great shape with no issues and is well marked.  This is an early example dated 1939.  This example has a white ink maker marking inside the right french cuff.  This piece has no mothing issues except for one tiny area of very light tracking at the right back center between the shoulder blade area that is barely noticeable but I am mentioning because it is present.  I would grade this early piece an excellent plus.  This piece is made of quality heavy wool and has a full liner.  This is a good looking tunic.  See pictures... (Pictures)

UN005.   Luftwaffe Flak Kanonier Tunic with Piped Collar and Chain Stitched Number Boards for Regiment 86.  Early Luftwaffe Flak Kanonier Tunic with Piped Collar and Chain Stitched Number Boards.  This piece has a 1938 date and is well marked.  This piece has some moth issues at the front two bottom pocket areas.  Some of the stitching has come loose on three of the lower three front pocket buttons.  Except for the moth issues this is a good looking tunic.  Most of the mothing is hidden as it is at the side areas of where the pockets fold out.  The tunic has a good look.  See pictures... (Pictures)

UN007.   Waffen-SS M-44 Camouflage Uniform with Bevo SS Sleeve Eagle.  Super looking Waffen-SS M-44 Camouflage Uniform with Bevo Sleeve Eagle.  This example is in worn condition and has a good look.  The left arm has a machine applied Bevo Sleeve Eagle.  The two cuffs have been shortened, no-doubt because the original wearer was a very small person in size.  This tunic is a very small size and I doubt that it would fit on a teenager.  I strongly suspect that a member of the 12th Waffen-SS Division "HITLERJUGEND" wore this small example and it was probably captured in France.  This salty piece has a great "been there" look and a lot of character.  This piece has no size markings as is common in about half of the pieces you will find...as either these examples never had them in the first place or they wore out with wear and cleaning.  This uniform, officially introduced on March 1st, 1944 was to be worn over the standard wool uniform or by itself with no insignia, although you will often find original examples with insignia that have been period applied such as this piece.  I have also seen period examples with shoulder boards and even cuff-titles applied.  A great piece!  See pictures... (Pictures)

UN026.  Army M-44 Tunic.  Great looking Army M-44 Tunic that looks to have never been worn and was no-doubt removed from a warehouse as a number of these were by US vets.  The bevo eagle is correct but was applied by the collector who got this piece out of the woodwork a while back.  Do not confuse this authentic and rare tunic with the repros coming out of Europe and being sold at less than one thousand dollars.  See pictures... (Pictures)

UN027.  Army Artillery Senior NCO's "Der Spiess" Waffenrock.  Super looking Army Artillery Senior NCO's Waffenrock for Regiment 19.  The rank of "Der Speiss" was the top sergeant in a regiment.  I would rate this tunic at an excellent plus in condition.  This example has an officer's quality eagle.  See pictures... (Pictures)    

Propaganda Cards

P003.  Waffen-SS Propaganda Recruiting Card by Anton.  Great looking Waffen-SS Propaganda Recruiting Card by Anton directed toward the Hitler Youth.  (Note the card sides do not look straight in the photos, but this is just due to the angle of the photo/camera lens...the card is perfectly straight and rectangular).  A rare original!  See pictures... (Pictures)

P043.  Waffen-SS Recruiting Card by Anton.  Great looking postally used Waffen-SS Recruiting Propaganda Card by Anton.  This card was mailed at Vienna in 1942.  Anton was an artist who was known for his SS recruiting posters.  Rare.  See pictures... (Pictures)

Other German Items

X001.  Horst Wessel - Str. Street Sign.  Nice Third Reich era street sign.  Horst Wessel was considered a national hero by many during the Third Reich era..  This sign is much scarcer then an Adolf Hitler street sign and is probably one of the only ones that is still in existence.  The sign is 22 inches long.  The piece is convex as is correct... (Pictures)

X002.  DAF BUILDING SIGN.  Nice Third Reich era building sign.  Super looking sign that went on a building for either a factory that belonged to the German Labor Front, or perhaps on a building with offices of the German Labor Front, known as the DAF.  About 19 inches by 19 inches.  The corners on the sign are all present but some are bent from where the piece was attached to the building. The piece is convex as is correct...  (Pictures)  

X006.  RAD Service Time Remembrance Plaque.  Nice looking plaque named to the RAD unit commemorating the owners' service in the RAD.  Service in the RAD, or Labor Corps, was compulsory before going into the armed forces.  This piece has a device for hanging on the reverse... (Pictures)

X007.  Autobahn Commemorative Award Plaque For The First 1000 Kilometers.  This Autobahn Commemorative Award Plaque was awarded to selected persons connected with the building of the German Autobahn.  The person who received this plaque worked on the first 1000 Kilometers of the Autobahn.  This piece even has a presentation on the back of the frame.  See pictures... (Pictures)

X009.  German "Deutsche Reichsbahn" Railroad Eagle, Large Size.  Absolutely superb and rare large size German "Deutsche Reichsbahn" Railroad Eagle that went on either a locomotive or passenger car.  This is the largest size of this style eagle that I have seen.  I have seen these railroad eagles in about 4 different sizes.  The detail on this eagle is crisp and superb.  The eagle is maker marked on the reverse.  These eagles are often copied but this is a rare original.  One of the things you like to see on the originals is how the bolts on the back have been cut off.  Usually these were applied with the bolt going into a round metal sleeve that went through the body of the sheet metal of the locomotive/passenger car and then a pin went through this sleeve into the bolt area.  On this example you can see where the piece was removed by the vet at the pin insertion area.  The removal was done by cutting with a saw.  You can even see some rust that has bled onto the aluminum  from the pin which was iron based.  You never see this on the fakes, rather on the reverse you just see what appear to be ground off areas where the bolt was supposed to be present...although on the fakes the bolts  were never there to begin with...it is just ground to make it look as if they were.  Nice original example that came out of the woodwork some years back.  The size of the piece is 28 1/2 inches wide by 15 1/2 inches high.  I have posted plenty of pictures of this example.  This piece even discolored on the back from the smoke that came out of the engine exhaust ...no doubt  this eagle came off  of a steam powered train and not an electric train which would not have produced any engine exhaust.  I have had a friend mount this piece on an old piece of wood that simulates the wood you would see on an early passenger car.  The piece was not damaged by the mounting as it just rests on two pins.  This wood used to mount the piece is a "throw in" and really makes a nice back-round display for the piece.  This is a superb piece that would be the highlight of any collection!  See pictures... (Pictures)

X010.  Waffen-SS/Army Field Police Gorget in choice condition.  Absolutely superb Waffen-SS/Army Field Police (Feldgendarmerie) Service Gorget.  This gorget first appeared in 1938.  The field police (military police) performed such duties as traffic control, guarding of supply and ammo dumps and local patrol service.  The Feldgendarmerie units ranged from company to battalion strength and served on all fronts from Europe to North Africa.  The gorget was worn at all times while on duty except when combat operations made this impossible.  The Feldgendarmerie also had a special cuffband, with the SS units getting their own style cuffband later in the war.  This example is made of steel.  The body and the links are all magnetic.  The reverse has a contoured pressed fiberboard applied.  The buttons, eagle and scroll are all covered in a paint that glows a light green color in the dark.  The other metal parts are themselves covered in a matte aluminum paint.  This example is a recent indirect vet pickup and appears never to have been issued or worn, and apart from minor storage wear is in mint condition.  Superb...

X011.  1938 SA Table Medal.  Super looking 1938 SA Table Medal commemorating a "Propaganda-Trip" by members of the SA throughout Germany.  This medal appears to be struck from silver and has a most impressive design.  The size of the medal is about 2 inches in diameter.  See pictures... (Pictures)

X013.  Bronze Statue of Adolf Hitler.  Great looking bronze statue of Adolf Hitler.  This is a statue produced early in the Third Reich era.  The statue shows Hitler wearing his Iron Cross, Party Armband and NSDAP Membership Badge.  The statue is about 6 inches high and has an impressive look.  The piece is heavy for its size and is probably made from solid bronze.  The piece is threaded on the bottom to accept a bolt and was probably at one time mounted on a piece of marble.  See pictures... (Pictures)

X014.  Social Welfare Plate.  Interesting NSV Social Welfare Plate from 1934 showing a mother holding a child.  The piece is about 9 inches in diameter.  See pictures... (Pictures)

X021.  1935 Nuremberg REICHSPARTEITAG Wall Hanging.  Interesting 1935 Nuremberg (Nurnberg in German) Reichs-Party Day Wall Hanging.  This piece is double sided and is about 7 inches by 5 inches in size.  Great looking decorative item sold at the rally.  The design shown on the piece, showing Hitler, and SA man and a Soldier, is the same design as the tinnie issued for that rally.  See pictures... (Pictures)

X027.   Fabric Cross From World War One German Fighter.  Interesting Fabric Cross From a World War One German Fighter neatly mounted on a piece of cardboard.  The material appears to be a treated canvas-type material.  On the back of the cloth you can see marks where it was glued to the framing of the plane.  The size of the Fabric Cross is about 20 inches by 20 inches.  The Cross is in the form of an Iron Cross.  There is a typed piece of paper in the lot that states this piece was cut from the tail of an Albatross DIII Fighter.  This piece comes along with provenance dating back to when it was sold in the "Shotgun News" in November of 1973 by a company called "Military Marine" that was based in England.  The piece shows a good amount of storage wear to the fabric and painted cross motif.  See pictures.  Interesting and rare early piece of aviation history...

X029.  German "Deutsche Reichsbahn" Railroad Eagle.  Absolutely superb and rare un-issued German "Deutsche Reichsbahn" Railroad Eagle that went on either a locomotive or passenger car or even (according to new information) on a building.  This eagle is 23 3/4 inches in length and the "600" on the back represents the size.  This maker also had eagles with the size mark of "680".  I have seen these railroad eagles in about 4 different sizes.  The detail on this eagle is crisp and superb.  The eagle is well marked on the reverse with the markings representing the maker, the place of manufacture and the metallic content of the piece.  These eagles are often copied but this is a rare original.  This eagle appears to have been meant to go onto
