M4795.  Kriegsmarine Victory Pennant for Shooting Down an Enemy Aircraft.  In the early stages of WW2 the Kriegsmarine followed the Luftwaffe practice of awarding Flak Crews with a pennant for successfully bringing down an enemy aircraft.  The Kriegsmarine version took the form of an Iron Cross within a white circle.  This example has the unit stamping which is hard to make out as this example was actually awarded, flown and cut down.  If more than one aircraft were shot down then more than one pennant could be flown one above the other.  It is believed that these pennants were discontinued with the institution of the KM War Badges.  This piece measures approximately 51 by 29cm.  There is some residue from old tape where the vet had it taped to an album.  See pictures...

It was located at the southern end of the "Große Straße" (Great road). Its dimensions were 955 x 610 meters (1,061 x 677 yards) or bigger than 80 football fields. The name of the huge deployment area was supposed to recall the recovery of military sovereignty of the German Reich in March 1935. ("März" is the German name for the month "March." As in English, the name derives from the Roman warrior god Mars. The name Märzfeld thus also alludes to the Campus Martius, in Rome. The Champs de Mars in Paris take their name from the Roman landmark as well.)  The construction, never completed, began in 1938 with plans calling for 24 granite towers each about 40 meters (125 feet) in height. Only eleven were ever completed and were demolished in 1966. Tribunes for about 160,000 people were planned around the field. On the central grandstand a group of colossal statures was planned: a goddess of victory and warriors. Today the site is occupied by a residential district, Langwasser, which also extends to the south, into the area previously used for tent cities during the party rallies..."  Rare.  3.2 cm diameter.  See pictures...

C3126ca.  "FREIES INDIEN" Bevo Foreign Volunteer Shield.  Great looking examples of one of the scarcest foreign volunteer shields to come out of WW2.  The Legion Freies Indien (German: "Free India Legion") or Indische Freiwilligen-Legion Regiment 950 ("Indian Volunteer Legion Regiment 950"), referred to colloquially as the Indische Legion ("Indian Legion"), variously known also as the Tiger Legion and the Azad Hind Fauj (Hindi: "Free India Army"), was an Indian military unit raised in 1941 in Germany attached to the German Army and later from August 1944 attached to the Waffen-SS, ostensibly according to the concept of an Indian liberation force during World War II by its co-founder the prominent Subhas Chandra Bose chairman of the Indian National Congress and a leader of the Indian independence movement, who in 1941 came to Berlin having just escaped British house arrest in India.  The initial recruits were Indian student volunteers resident in Germany at the time, and a handful from the Indian prisoners of war (POWs) captured by Rommel during his North Africa Campaign.  It would later draw a larger number of Indian POWs as volunteers.  Raised initially as an assault group that would form a pathfinder to a German/Indian invasion of the western frontiers of British India, only a small contingent was ever put to its original intended purpose when a hundred of the legionnaires were parachuted into eastern Iran in 'Operation Bajadere' to infiltrate into India through Baluchistan and commence sabotage operations against the British in preparation for an anticipated national revolt. A majority of the troops of the Indian Legion were only ever stationed in Europe – mostly in non-combat duties – from the Netherlands, to Atlantic Wall duties in France until the Allied invasion of France.  A small contingent, including the leadership and the officer corps, was transferred to Azad Hind ("Free India") after its formation and saw action in the INA's Burma Campaign.  The unit saw action against British and Polish troops and also undertook anti-partisan operations in Italy in 1944.  At the time of the surrender of Germany in 1945, remaining troops of the Indian Legion made efforts to march to neutral Switzerland over the Alps, but these efforts proved futile as they were captured by American and French troops and eventually shipped back to India to face charges of treason.  See pictures...

C3144.  "AFRIKA" Campaign Cuff Title.  Great looking "AFRIKA" Campaign Cuff Title that is 17 1/4 inches 18.4 cm long being au excellent un-issued example.  This example is made from a khaki brown camel hair material.  On January 15th, 1943, Adolf Hitler ordered the introduction of the "AFRIKA" cuff title which had the status of a campaign decoration/award.  The award was to be the same for all three branches of the service.  The piece was to be 3.3 cm wide and made from a khaki brown camel hair material.  The piping was done in silver colored thread.  The cuff title was to be worn on the lower left cuff of the tunic and overcoat.  In order to be awarded this cuff title the bearer had to have served at least six months on North African soil, or have been wounded in the North African theater of operations, or have contracted an illness in North Africa and with this illness requiring evacuation from the continent.  Under the later, circumstance service of at least three months was required before contraction of an illness.  The cuff title could also be awarded if the person was killed while on duty in North Africa.  In this case only the award document would have been given to the person's survivors.  See pictures...

X448.  NSKK Wahlhilfsdienst 10. April 1938 Plebiscite Emergency Services Arm Shield.  This NSKK Wahlhilfsdienst 10. April 1938 "Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Fuhrer!" Plebiscite Emergency Services Arm Shield was worn during the Plebiscite held in Austria on April 10, 1938 to confirm that country's union with Germany.  Austria's annexation by Germany is more commonly known as "The Anschluss" and a plebiscite was held to show that the people of Austria approved this annexation or political union.  I believe that over 98 percent of the Austrian voters approved the referendum.  At this time German troops were already in Austria, entering the country earlier in the year, on March 12th, on orders of Hitler.  This piece is made of silver/gray finished bakelite or plastic by Richard Sieper & Sohne of Ludenscheid, which was one of the few companies in Germany that did produce badges in this medium at that time.  This is only the second such shield I have owned.   The NSKK reference by Angolia and Littlejohn states that this piece is a vehicle plaque for election assistants but I believe this was most likely worn on an armband.  See pictures... (Pictures)

X530.  Reichsleiter Metal Vehicle Pennant.  Great looking Reichsleiter Metal Vehicle Pennant being the style for the vehicle bumper measuring 16cm square being a recent indirect vet-estate purchase with this style being the post 1939 pattern.  Rare.  See pictures... (Pictures)

X871.  German Army General's Vehicle Pennant Belonging to Generalmajor Wolfgang von Holwede, Arrested and Imprisoned for July 20th, 1944 Attempt on Hitler's Life.  Good looking German Army General's Vehicle Pennant Belonging to Generalmajor Wolfgang von Holwede, Arrested and Imprisoned for the July 20th, 1944 Attempt on Hitler's Life that comes along with its carrying case and original issue documentation.  The General was charged in late 1944 for the July 20th Assassination Attempt on Hitler and spent the rest of the War in a concentration camp.  See pictures...

X894.  Center Panel from SA Kettle Drum Skirt.  Early piece measuring 44 by 35cm excluding the fringe being finely chain stitched.  See pictures... (Pictures)

X1029.  Early NSDAP Wall or Building Eagle.  Great looking Early NSDAP Wall or Building Eagle being made of iron (magnetic) and marked to the foundry measuring 14 inches by 9 1/2 inches (35.5 by 24cm).  This is a fairly scarce pattern and I would date this piece to circa 1930.  See pictures... (Pictures)

X1041.  1936 NSDAP Election Rally Poster.  This is a poster printed by the NSDAP Ortsgruppe (Local District) in Anröchte announcing that NSDAP Party member Saßmannhausen from Bochum will be speaking at a mass rally for the coming Reichstag Election of 1936 in the hall of Party member Arnold Stratman on Monday, 16 March 1936 at 8:30 in the evening. Entrance was free. This piece measures 18 3/4 by 25 inches (48 by 63.5cm.  This would look great framed.  See pictures... (Pictures)

X1075.  Third Reich Trolley Car or Bus Eagle.  Excellent Trolley Car or Bus Eagle being made of aluminum alloy and measuring 40cm/ 15 3/4 inches wide by 26cm/ 10 1/2 inches high having a German Military paint scheme, black/white/red. This was likely done when the vehicle that this eagle was on (likely a postal bus) was requisitioned by the military.  I have seen these without paint as well as having different paint schemes, with some having the area around the swastika or the swastika itself simply painted.  This is a rare eagle and this style has been reproduced.  Study the details of this rare original so that you will not get fooled by a reproduction.  These eagles were used on trolley cars, locomotives, train doors as well as on buses and are rarer than the larger railway eagles.  See pictures... (Pictures)

X1094.  Reichskanzlei (Reich Chancellery) Serving Tray by Wellner.  This piece measures about 15 1/2 inches in diameter and is round.  This example has the monogram of the Reich Chancellery.  It consists of the Party eagle with half-open wings clutching a wreath with immobile swastika.  On either side of the wreath respectively, is the monogram, "R.K." (Reich Kanzlei).  The base is maker-marked, "WELLNER / 67".  This piece is produced of nickel with a silver plate.  The "RK" service pieces are rarer than the "AH" types, as they were only used in the Chancellery.  This piece is in excellent condition for its age showing storage wear and was obtained by me from the vet's daughter.  An important and key piece if you are collecting "AH" or "RK" pieces from the Reich government table service.  I will provide the buyer the vet's name and info along with information on how he obtained this piece and a copy of his photo.  See pictures... (Pictures)

X1096.  Reichskanzlei (Reich Chancellery) Casserole by Wellner.  This casserole is identical (apart from the monogram) to the AH monogrammed pieces.  This example has the monogram of the Reich Chancellery.  It consists of the Party eagle with half-open wings clutching a wreath with immobile swastika.  On either side of the wreath respectively, is the monogram, "R.K." (Reich Kanzlei).  This piece is produced of nickel with a silver plate, as were all of the AH table service pieces.  The "RK" service pieces are rarer than the "AH" types, as they were only used in the Chancellery.  This piece is in excellent condition for its age showing storage wear and was obtained by me from the vet's daughter.  An important and key piece if you are collecting "AH" or "RK" pieces from the Reich government table service.  This piece measures 9 inches round.  The base is maker-marked, "WELLNER / 140cl 42".  I will provide the buyer the vet's name and info along with information on how he obtained this piece and a copy of his photo.  See pictures... (Pictures)

X1145.  German "Deutsche Reichsbahn" Railroad Eagle, Large Size, by "HE".  Nice 28 1/2 inch by 15 inch large size German "Deutsche Reichsbahn" Railroad Eagle.  The maker of this eagle is "HE".  This eagle was probably mounted on a locomotive as you can still see a good amount of soot on it and it is bent at both wings from where the GIs removed the piece giving it a lot of character.  This is a great piece of German War Booty.  The eagle is correctly marked on the reverse for this maker to indicate the metal content as well as the maker name and location.  I have posted plenty of pictures of this example.  This is a superb piece that would be the highlight of any collection!  See pictures... (Pictures)

X1152.  NSDAP Desk Eagle.  Bronzed white metal.  5 1/2 inches/ 13.5cm tall.  I have never had this pattern before.  The eagle holding a swastika is perched on an NSDAP memorial.  It appears that something was meant to go into the round slot, perhaps a small candle.  See pictures... (Pictures)

X1166.  Army/Waffen-SS Field Police Gorget.  Great looking Army/Waffen-SS 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 pressed cardboard fiber fitted to shape.  See pictures... (Pictures)

X1211.  SS Schellenbaum - Glockenspiel Eagle.  This was used on the lyre.  Rare.  Minor inconsequential chip at base.  10 1/2 inches/ 26.5cm wingspan.  Aluminum.  See pictures... (Pictures)

X1212.   WW2 German-Ally Hungarian Field Police Gorget.  Prior to the introduction of this WW2 German-Ally Hungarian Field Police Gorget which is modeled on the German style Field Police Gorget, the Hungarian Field Police wore an enamel breast badge and a cap with a large feather, which was actually not worn under combat conditions, making the field police hard to recognize at the front so this design was adopted.  Do not confuse this desirable original example with reproductions being sold.   See pictures... (Pictures)

X1231.  Luftwaffe Standard Bearer Gorget by Juncker.  Beautiful and rare gorget by Juncker of Berlin.  This piece has had the chain lost to time but all of the reverse fittings are intact.  The chain is the field police gorget type chain but is done in silver over nickel.  See pictures... (Pictures)  

X1233.  German "Deutsche Reichsbahn" Railroad Eagle, by "B".  Superb 24 1/2 inch by 13 1/2 example with the reverse fittings present showing how it was mounted on the locomotive.  To date this maker, "B" has not been identified but this style is pictured in the new book by Saris.  This is a great piece of German War Booty that will be the highlight of any collection!  See pictures... (Pictures)    

X1236.  Large Wehrmacht Desk Eagle.  This eagle has a wingspan of 9 7/8 inches (25cm) and a total height of 10 inches (25.4cm) and is complete with its original two-tier marble base.  The fantastic eagle sits on a globe that likely represents the desired domination by Germany of the world at that time.  I have usually seen these eagles broken off with the globe missing and the eagles attached to a piece of marble or loose on their own but I have never seen a complete example.  The silver-plate on this piece has taken a dark patina that may brighten up but I would not touch it as it looks stunning as is.  There was at one time a presentation plaque at the front of the bottom marble piece but this has been lost to time.  This would make a fine piece for your desk or your collection room.  See pictures... (Pictures)

X1240.  "SS STREIFENDIENST" SS Provost Service Gorget.  The SS-STREIFENDIENST, or SS Provost Service was formed as required by a commander of an SS district for the duties of patrolling out of bound areas to see that SS men behaved themselves, were properly dressed, and were not seen in the streets, in uniform after midnight.  A patrol consisted of two or three men under the command of a senior non-commissioned officer.  All members of this patrol wore this special gorget.  A good amount of men served in the SS STREIFENDIENST during large events such as the annual Nuremberg Rallies.  A reference is made to this special gorget in the NSDAP Organisationsbuch of 1936.  This is an extremely rare gorget as well as an extremely desirable original example.  This example is in excellent condition and I believe the nicest example that I have owned.  This example is maker coded and RZM marked on the reverse center fitting.  The chain is original to the gorget as is the wool backing.  This is a choice excellent never played with example.  See pictures...

X1257.  Julius Streicher Dish.  This is one I have not had before.  See pictures... (Pictures)

X1258.  German "Deutsche Reichsbahn" Railroad Eagle by "PS".  Great looking German "Deutsche Reichsbahn" Railroad Eagle that went on either a locomotive or passenger car or even on a building. This eagle is 23 3/4 inches in length and the "600" on the back represents the size (60cm).  This maker also had eagles with the size mark of "680".  I have seen these 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 was never issued as the retaining devices on the reverse are still intact and have not been drilled into or milled. The size of the piece is 23 3/4 inches wide by 13 1/4 inches high, which are textbook measurements for this maker. I have posted plenty of pictures of this example. This eagle has some foundry markings at the top of the head.  See pictures... (Pictures)

X1274.  Martini Glass from Schloss Klessheim by Krupp.  After the Austrian Anschluss in 1938, Adolf Hitler, when staying at his nearby Berghof residence, used Schloss Klessheim for conferences and to host official guests like Benito Mussolini, Miklós Horthy, Ion Antonescu, Jozef Tiso and Ante Pavelić.  While Horthy stayed at Klessheim, Hitler on 19 March 1944 secretly gave orders for Operation Margarethe to occupy Hungary and enforce the deportation of the Hungarian Jews to Auschwitz.  Until October 1944, the palace remained outside the reach of Allied bombers.  In May 1945 it was seized by the American military administration. Reichsadler statues made of lime stone, that were attached to the entrance portals, were a reminder of the Nazi era.  Silver-plated brass.  From a small vet-estate lot.  18 cm/ 7 1/4 inches tall.  Small ding on reverse.  Last one of 5.  Rare.  See pictures... (Pictures)

X1284.  Impressive Third Reich Presentation Eagle by "HB".  Very impressive example presented during the war and a less encountered style Nuremberg Eagle that looks great.  Bronzed white metal.  9 1/2 inches/ 24cm high.  RZM and maker marked to "HB", a prominent maker of these sort of pieces during the Third Reich Era.  One wing feather has a crack but this can be repaired with some effort should one choose.  See pictures...

X1291.  Cloth "Jude" Star of David - Sheet of 28 Pieces.  On September 1, 1941, Reinhard Heydrich decreed that all Jews over six years of age in the Reich, Alsace, Bohemia-Moravia and the German–annexed territory of western Poland (called the Warthegau), were to wear a yellow Star of David on their outer clothing in public at all times.  The word "Jew" was to be inscribed inside the star in German or the local language.  Similar local decrees had already been issued in occupied territories prior to that date.  This partial sheet of 28 stars was recently found by an associate where it sat in a collection here in New York and is the largest partial sheet that I have seen, as whatever sheets that were made were cut for the stars to be issued and then any surviving sheets could have been cut down for their stars to be distributed for collector interest.  The sheet is an interesting study as you can see how the stars were printed with the scissor cut guide lines from one star continuing to the next so as not to waste any cloth with this being a function of the design of the sheet.  I have seen individual stars selling in the thousand dollar range.  A sad and historic and important Holocaust artifact.  I have compared the stars on this piece to reference "Jude" stars that I have and have had and the cloth, print and design are a match.  No worries on the authenticity of this extreme historic rarity.  See pictures...

X1295.  Political Leader's Gorget.   Great looking example by "RZM M1/102" having that marking both on the gorget fitting and the chain as well, with this piece being in excellent shape and one that would be hard to upgrade.  This would have been worn by the Standarte Bearer when an NSDAP group would have a parade or other ceremony.  See pictures... (Pictures)

X1302.  National Fire Brigade Gorget Center Device.  Great looking and extremely rare National Fire Brigade Gorget Center Device measuring 8.8 by 8.8cm being pictured in the early Gorget work by Deeter and Odegard where the gorget with this device was attributed as an SA variant but the new 2012 work, Ringkragen und Brustschilder im Dritten Reich. by Saris and Mollo correctly attributes the gorget as belonging to the National Fire Brigade Union and shows a period photo with a flag having a patch with the same design with patches used by the union being extant.  Regulations in 1934 made use of the gorget obsolete so it is possible that then existing gorgets had the devices removed and they were converted to regular SA or other gorgets.  This piece would have went on a regular SA/SS style gorget back-plate.  See pictures...

X1309.  German "Deutsche Reichsbahn" Railroad Eagle by "PS".  Great looking German "Deutsche Reichsbahn" Railroad Eagle that went on either a locomotive or passenger car or even 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 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.  This eagle was at one time mounted, most likely on a train and you can see where it was drilled at the reverse fittings where the screws were at one time applied to mount the piece.  The size of the eagle is 23 3/4 inches wide by 13 1/4 inches high, which are textbook measurements for this maker.  I have posted plenty of pictures of this example.  See pictures... (Pictures)  

X1310.  German "Deutsche Reichsbahn" Railroad Eagle by "GPH".  Great looking German "Deutsche Reichsbahn" Railroad Eagle.  This has threaded reverse fittings along with the original nuts that attached the piece to were it sat on the the train.  As is usual for this maker the eagle has light markings that indicate the maker and metal content and that it was meant to go on a locomotive.  The size of the piece is 23 3/4 inches wide by 13 1/4 inches high.  I have posted plenty of images of this example.  See pictures... (Pictures)

X1312.  Nuremberg Desk Eagle.  Very impressive silver-finished example on the original two-tier base.  The left wing has a repair that is visible from the front and back but was done very well and is not too detractive as well as a repair at the base of the metal platform..  It is very hard to find original Nuremberg Desk Eagles for sale with this of course being an one.  Silver plated tombac-brass.  Hollow.  One recently went for around 3 thousand dollars in a US auction so I think the price here is fair for this piece.  8 1/2 inches in height and very handsome!  See pictures... (Pictures)

X1313.  SS Calendar.  Missing the front piece that held the date cards.  Marked to the SS on the reverse and some info from the vet.  SS eagle at front top.  9 1/4 by 13 1/4 inches.  See pictures... (Pictures)

X1382.  Martini Glass from Schloss Klessheim by Krupp.  After the Austrian Anschluss in 1938, Adolf Hitler, when staying at his nearby Berghof residence, used Schloss Klessheim for conferences and to host official guests like Benito Mussolini, Miklós Horthy, Ion Antonescu, Jozef Tiso and Ante Pavelić.  While Horthy stayed at Klessheim, Hitler on 19 March 1944 secretly gave orders for Operation Margarethe to occupy Hungary and enforce the deportation of the Hungarian Jews to Auschwitz. Until October 1944, the palace remained outside the reach of Allied bombers.  In May 1945 it was seized by the American military administration. Reichsadler statues made of lime stone, that were attached to the entrance portals, were a reminder of the Nazi era.  Silver-plated brass. 18 cm/ 7 1/4 inches tall.  See pictures... (Pictures)

X1385.  Large German "Deutsche Reichsbahn" Railroad Eagle by "V".  Great looking German "Deutsche Reichsbahn" Railroad Eagle that went on either a locomotive or passenger car.  This impressive eagle has a wingspan of 27 inches and a height of 14 inches and is a maker "V" that is not often found with these eagles getting more and more difficult to locate.  The markings on the back of this one represent the central rail office in Berlin, the maker and the metal content.  The detail on this eagle is crisp and superb.  This is an interesting example as at one point during the war it was painted black and this was done at times for camouflage purposes so that the eagles would not stand out.  You can see where some of the black paint dripped on the back of the eagle in a few spots when this was done.  This eagle had threaded attachments that are now gone as at one point holes were drilled into the piece for attachment, probably post-war by the vet as this was the practice at times.  I obtained this from the son of a NYC lawyer who received it many years ago from a WW2 vet client who had brought it back as a piece of German War Booty.  See pictures...

X1399.  Hitler and Hindenburg Plaques.  This is a set.  The Hitler one is quite scarce and impressive.  Circa 1933.  Each piece measures 8 by 6 inches.  Hanger gone on Hitler piece.  See pictures... (Pictures)
