Interesting, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based shield as was intended for usage on a: WH (Heeres) Panzer 'Schützenschnur' (or: shooting- ie. marksmanship-lanyard) and that comes mounted on an aluminium plaque

This is a neat - and with certainty interesting! - example of a, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based shield as was intended for usage on a: WH (Heeres) Panzer 'Schützenschnur' (or: shooting- ie. marksmanship-lanyard) and that comes mounted on an aluminium plaque that shows the engraved text: 'Souvenier of the campaign in Germany 1945' example of a detailed- and/or zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based and that comes in an overall nice (IMO never used nor worn-), condition. The shield comes in an overall fine condition and shows no damage whatsoever: just some aging and/or slight staining is present and/or visible. The detail is really pronounced and/or detailed: it has a nice age-patina and has acquired some tarnish over the years (it was IMO however never cleaned nor polished). The badge still retains both its (IMO still fully functional) prongs (as can be seen on the pictures). These small- (ie. 11 x 8 cms.-) sized plaques were assembled by making use of old stock: they were intended to be sold to the various allied-soldiers. This example originates from the USA where I found it amongst the war-souvenirs of an US-soldier who kept this item for decades. Simply a very nice and decorative piece: ideal to restore any 'Heeres'- shooting-/or marksmanship-lanyard or to leave as such!

Attractive - albeit single! - IMO mid-war period-, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) EM-type shoulderstrap as was intended for a: 'Soldat eines Kraftfahr-Abteilungs o. Regiments'

This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO mid-war period-, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the neat light-blue- (ie. 'kornblumenblauer'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for a: 'Soldat eines Kraftfahr-Abteilungs o. Regiments' (or: soldier who served within a transport-related unit- ie. regiment), in an overall nice (IMO only moderately used-) condition. The neat shoulderstrap - which is piped in the desirable light-blue- (ie. 'kornblumenblauer'-) coloured branchcolour - measures approximately 11,8 cms. in length and has the neat (and desirable) 'silk-like'-type piping attached. The strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and was IMO moderately used and/or worn. The strap comes naturally mounted on it functional tongue and shows no defaults nor real damage but does show minimal age, wear and/or staining as mentioned above. In any case an attractive and/or mid- (ie. later-) war-period- and/or: 'Heeres'- ie. 'Nachshub'-related enlisted-mens'-type- shoulderstrap that was intended for - and/or used by! - 'Soldat eines Kraftfahr-Abteilungs o. Regiments'!

Superb - and fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) 'cyphered'-, officers-pattern shoulderboards as piped in the typical black- ie. orange-red-coloured branchcolour, as was intended for an: 'Oberleutnant des Festungspionierkorps'

This is a truly very attractive - and/or fully matching and with certainty very rarely encountered! - pair of WH (Heeres) 'cyphered'-, officers-pattern shoulderboards as piped in the typical black- (ie. orange-red-coloured-) branchcolour, as was intended for usage by an: 'Oberleutnant des Festungspionierkorps' (or: lieutnant first-class that belonged to the engineer-related-, fortifications corps) and that comes in overall very nice- (IMO issued albeit never worn- nor: 'tunic-attached'-), condition. The attractive shoulderboards - which are constructed from the typical, orange-red- (ie. 'orangeroter'-) and silver-coloured- (and 'twisted') 'braid' and having the black- ie. 'schwarzer'-coloured- and woolen-based 'underlays' - come in an excellent condition overall and are simply very hard to be upgraded. The shoulderboards - which measure approximately 11,5 cms. in length each - show two identical (aluminium-based, neatly silver-toned- and/or fully matching-) so-called: 'FP'-cyphers and a single pip each attached (which all retain all of their silver-toned finish) and were as such intended for an officer with the rank of: 'Oberleutnant' (ie. lieutnant first-class). The boards - which were IMO never tunic-attached and - never had any tongues attached: they were intended to be used as a pair of the 'sew-in'-pattern (as can be seen on the pictures). Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that the cyphers and pips were attached BEFORE the boards were completely assembled. This very interesting - and exceedingly rarely seen! - shoulderboard-set belonged to an army: 'Oberleutnant des Festungspionierkorps' (who was presumably issued these but never worn them and kept them as such for decades). Simply a superb - and truly very rarely encountered! - 'Heeres', commisioned-officers'-type shoulderboard-pair that is very hard to be upgraded. Only the first such rare and complete pair I ever had on offer!

This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO mid-war period-, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the neat white- (ie.

'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour and that shows the bluish-grey-coloured- (ie. truly sub-dued-) type NCO-braid attached - measures approximately 11,4 cms. in length and has the desirable, 'silk-like'-type piping attached (see pictures). The strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and was IMO moderately used and/or worn. The strap comes naturally mounted on it functional tongue and shows no defaults nor damage but does show minimal age, wear and/or staining as mentioned above. In any case an attractive and/or mid- (ie. later-) war-period- and/or: 'Heeres'-related NCO-type shoulderstrap that was intended for - and/or used by! - an: 'Unteroffizier der Infanterie-Truppen'!

This is a very detailed - and/or actually rarely encountered! - greyish-silver-toned- and/or zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based, so-called: Lufwaffe- (ie. 'Flakhelfer'-) related-membership-badge (ie. 'Zivilabzeichen der Luftwaffenhelfer') that comes mounted on its functional pin/catch set-up and that comes in an overall nice (and IMO moderately worn-), condition.

The tiny piece - that show a LW-related eagle-device with a swastika with the characters 'L' and 'H' - is totally void of a makers'-mark or alike (as can be seen on the pictures). A similar badge is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken' lapel-pin-catalogue, wherein it is given a unique reference-number (9505K) and an estimated value of 220 Eu. Simply a nice occasion to obtain a rarely encountered 'Mitglieds- o. Zivilabzeichen der Lufwaffenhelfer'!

Attractive example of a WH cuff-title (ie. 'Ärmelstreifen') entitled: 'Afrikakorps', being a clearly issued- ie. worn- and/or once tunic-attached, condition

This is an attractive and/or fully 'textbook'-example of a WH cuff-title (ie. 'Ärmelstreifen') entitled: 'Afrikakorps', being an IMO clearly issued- and/or moderately worn- (and/or once tunic-attached-), condition. The armband comes in a somewhat shortened condition (ie. it measures approximately 39 cms.) and was as stated issued and moderately worn. Both ends show some normal fraying as is more often encountered. The armband just shows some minimal age ie. staining caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage but is void of any damage or alike (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece was once tunic-attached and was sewn-on by means of machine-stitching (as can be deducted from the stitching-holes which are clearly present). This example was recently found at a German private household and was never before in collectors'-hands. Simply a very attractive and naturally genuine period example that will be very hard to be upgraded and that is IMO accordingly priced!

Very attractive, 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based solid-back- (ie. so-called: '1.29.1 - unknown half moon hinge'-) variant-pattern

This particular example - being as stated a non-maker-marked- zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based piece - has maintained a very attractive (and truly silverish-coloured-) age-patina and comes naturally mounted on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-toned-) pin. The piece comes with a regular (ie. 'half-moon hinge'-set-up) and catch that is mounted on a rectangular-plate (see pictures). The piece is very detailed and/or pronounced: it has IMO been hardly used and only shows some minimal wear on the obvious higher areas: it is, moreover, a tiny bit dirty but was IMO never cleaned. The piece is IMO never polished and does still show great pronounced detail. This specific GAB - of which to date no exact maker has been determined - is also described on the German Combat Awards- (ie. GCA-) Forum, whereat it has been given the unique reference-number: '1.29.1 - unknown half moon hinge'-variant-pattern. Of interest is moreover the fact that due to its thick-based silvered finish this piece can easily be mistaken for a 'Buntmetall'-based piece: it is, however, made-out of zinc (ie. 'Feinzink'). It should be noted that this is a desirable - and with certainty not that often encountered! - GAB-variant that can easily be graded 'scarce'.

Attractive, silver-toned- and/or aluminium based-, WH (Luftwaffe) visor- (ie. 'Schirmmützen'-) cap-eagle- and cocarde-set (being both non-maker-marked examples of the second pattern) that comes in minimally used- ie. cap-removed condition

These specific sets were intended for usage on the various WH (Luftwaffe) visor- (ie. 'Schirmmützen'-) and saw usage throughout the war. The set on offer here has truly great pronounced detail and comes in a fully functional condition. Both pieces - which are IMO of a mid- ie. later-war production - are both void of any makers'-designation (as can be seen on the pictures). Both pieces come mounted on their (once bent- but still present and/or functional prongs). The eagle has an approximate wing-span of 5,4 cms. and has a silverish-grey- and/or: minimally tarnished - 'age-patina' (it was as stated above IMO once cap-attached: something that is also valid for the cocarde - see pictures). It should be noted that excellent copies of this specific cap-insignia exist: this is naturally a fine and 100% genuine insignia-set. Simply a very attractive WH (Luftwaffe) visor- (ie. 'Schirmmützen'-) insignia-set that is nowadays not that easily encountered and that can excellenty be used to restore a LW EM-/NCO-type visor-cap!

Neat, 'standard'-pattern, WH ('Kriegsmarine') aluminium-based- and/or silver-toned ID-disc (ie. 'Erkennungsmarke'), bearing the engraved text ie. number: 'Ernst Engelbrecht - N 17442/41 K' that comes with an interesting allied POW-ID-card

The neat - and actually unusally encountered disc - which is IMO of the early-war-period type - is bearing the engraved text ie. number: 'Ernst Engelbrecht - N 17442/41 K' that comes with an interesting allied POW-ID-card and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly issued- ie. worn-), condition. The disc - which is clearly worn as such - is in a fine, albeit clearly used- and/or worn-, condition and does show some regular wear (it shows somewhat torn-out holes and shows some minimal scratching). It was IMO never cleaned nor polished and is still a tiny bit dirty. This example came with an interesting allied POW-ID-card (which is stored in a metal-based frame that is sized: 7,2 x 5,5 cms. and that denotes that Engelbrecht was imprisoned in a POW-camp numbered: '307' and was given the ID-numeral: '047409' (as can be seen on the pictures). Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that it bears a stamped bloodgroup ('Type 0') on its front: something that is not often seen on 'Kriegsmarine-Erkennungsmarken' (as can be seen on the pictures). It should be noted that these 'standard-pattern'- and decorative KM-related ID-discs (ie. 'Erkennungsmarken') are actually not that easily encountered. Simply an attractive albeit clearly used- and/or worn example that comes with an interesting extra allied POW-ID-card!
