This is an attractive example of a greyish-silver-coloured- and/or: typically alumnium-based, WH (Heeres-) ie. 'Nachshub'- (ie. transport-) related-, 'standard-pattern'-, ID-disc (ie. 'Erkennungsmarke'), bearing the clearly stamped unit-designation that reads: 'Kfz.Sa.St.VIII/25' (and as such being a disc that was IMO intended for a soldier or NCO who served within the: 'Kraftfahrzeug-Sammelstelle 8/25'’ ie.: eight company within motor-vehicle collection-centre ie. transport-related-unit, numbered: '25'), that comes in an overall nice (albeit clearly used ie. worn-) condition. The attractive disc is in overall nice condition (and is executed in an attractive letter-type!) and shows the clear evidence of having been used ie. worn (it shows truly torn-out holes - see pictures). The disc shows the clearly stamped bearers'-blood-group-type (type 'A') and comes as recently uncovered (see pictures). It was never cleaned nor polished (it is still a bit stained and/or dirty). The disc originates from a larger ID-disc collection that was compiled over many years. Simply an attractive and honest WH (Heeres-) ie. 'Nachschub'-related ID-disc that is IMO accordingly priced!
This is an attractive, very early-period- (ie. IMO pre-1933-pattern-) single, bright-green-piped-, HJ ('Hitlerjugend') ie. 'Allgemeine HJ' shoulderstrap, as was intended for - and used by! - a: 'Hitlerjunge' who served within: 'Oberbann 3 - Unterbann 73' (73 = Diepholz/Mittelweser) and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly used- and/or worn-), condition. The strap is void of a 'RzM'-etiket (something that is more often encountered and was most certainly caused by regular usage and/or wear). It is executed in the light-brown- (ie. tan-) coloured linnen, having bright-green-embroidered '73'-and/or: (Roman-syled-) 'I' numerals attached (which are executed in the neat so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei'). The strap has the bright-green-coloured- and (rayon-based-) piping and measures 12,5 cms. in length as is more often encountered. It originated from a private household and was never before in a collection. Simply a nice - and actually not that commonly encountered! - early-type 'Allgemeine' HJ-shoulderstrap!
This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless rarely encountered! - specific 'cyphered'-, officers'-type shoulderboard, as was intended for a WH (Heeres) 'Feldpostsekretär' (being of a rank comparable with a: 'Leutnant'-rank), that comes in an overall very nice (albeit IMO sligthty worn- ie. IMO tunic-removed-) condition. The board - which is executed in the 'smooth'-like- and/or darker-green-coloured wool (aka 'moleskin'-wool) has the neat (bright- ie. lemon-yellow- ie. 'zitronengelber'- coloured-) branchcolour (ie. 'Zwischenfarbe') and silver-grey-coloured 'upperdeck' showing a tiny, interwoven yellow-coloured piece of braid something that was obligatory for all (officer-type-) shoulderboards as worn and/or used by the 'Feldpost'-service officials. The board measures approximately 11,3 cms. in length and never had a tongue attached and was IMO intended for usage as a piece of the 'sew-in'-type (as can be seen on the pictures). The board shows a (regular-sized-, neatly golden-toned- and IMO 'Buntmetall'-based-): 'FP'-cypher (period-) attached. This device is somewhat tarnished and/or stained but which is still very nice and/or pronounced (as can be seen on the pictures). Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that the device was attached BEFORE the board was totally assembled (something that can be seen on the pictures). The board was only minimally used and does show some (truly minor) staining ie. wear. This particular example originated from a larger cloth- ie. shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. Simply an attractive - and truly rarely seen! - officers'-type, 'cyphered' shoulderboard that belonged to a: WH (Heeres) 'Feldpostsekretär': too bad it is only a single piece!
This is an attractive example of a WH (Luftwaffe)-related (and IMO EM- ie. NCO-pattern-) machine-embroidered breast-badge (as was intended for staff working within the WH (LW) 'Generalluftzeugmeister' (ie. 'GL') organisation, that comes in an overall nice (ie. IMO minimally used- and/or once tunic-attached-), condition. This fairly unknown TR-period-organisation - which was staffed with merely civilian personal but had commissioned (ie. air-force-) staff in the lead - was presumably active in various industrial tasks dealing with the greater Luftwaffe. There is not much reference-work for the exact tasking ie. usage of these breast-badges. These badges are most times incorrectly referred to as 'visor-cap'-badges but were merely used as breast-badges). The badge on offer here is a detailed example that is executed in black-coloured-, linnen-based thread as woven on a golden-yellow-coloured background. The badge - which is fairly small-sized and measures on its top 8.5 cms. - shows some truly minimal aging, wear and/or minimal handling. Simply an attractive and most certainly unusually encountered: WH (LW) 'Generalluftzeugmeister'-related breast-badge that is IMO priced according to its comparative rarity and/or desirability!
The very attractive medal is stamped by the designer- ie. cutter ('De Marohis') and is also neatly maker-marked ('Lorioli-Milano') as is always the case with these neat and desirable, commemorative awards. The medal truly retains all of its truly golden-bronze-coloured finish and has IMO never been cleaned nor polished: it is simply a tiny bit dirty and retains truly fantastic and/or pronounced detail. The piece comes - as stated above - mounted on its (regular-sized- and/or neatly folded ie. minimally confectioned-) piece of original ribbon (which is actually hard to find in itself). The ribbon shows very bright colours (as is not always the case) and comes mounted on its (period-attached-, black-coloured-) safety-pin as used ie. worn. The medal originates from a German flea-market and was never before in a collection. Simply one of the most attractive examples I had on offer for quite some time!
The attractive cross - which is a neatly vaulted ie. converse-shaped example as is more often seen - retains a very attractive age-patina and has very nice and pronounced detail. This example - which is IMO an evident specimen as was produced by the: 'B.H. Mayer's Kunstprägeanstalt' based in the town of Pforzheim - comes naturally mounted on its original- (and naturally fully functional-) flute-shaped pin- and/or typical catch-set-up. The cross shows a neatly 'blackened' and/or fairly 'satin-like'- ie. 'matted' inner-core that hardly shows wear ie. paint-loss (it truly has an almost fully preserved black-coloured inner-core and shows some dust-staining- and/or paint-loss on the swastika-area only) and has all the specific specifications of a by: 'B.H. Mayer'-produced example. A fair bit of its off-factory applied so-called: 'hochpolierte Kanten' (or polished sides) are still present as can be seen on the pictures. The award is just a tiny bit dirty and/or tarnished simply caused by years of storage and/or moderate wear but retains a great unmessed-with and/or uncleaned, age-patina: I deem that I have priced this very attractive example accordingly!
This is an attractive - and as such actually scarcely encountered albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres), 'cyphered', officers'-type shoulderboard, as piped in the black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by a: 'Leutnant u. Mitglied des Eisenbahn-Pioniere-Abteilungs 4' (or: lieutnant who served within an armoured-trains-related-, engineers unit ie. regiment, numbered: '4'), that comes in an overall nice, albeit moderately used and/or IMO minimally worn-, condition. The board - which measures approximately 10,2 cms. in length and has a somewhat 'shiny' silver-coloured 'upperdeck' - is IMO only moderately used and shows some minor wear, age and/or minimal staining. The board comes without tongues and was with certainty worn as a board of 'sew-in'-type. The board shows the neat (Gothic-styled-, regular-sized-, golden-toned and/or: 'Buntmetall'-based-) so-called: 'E'-'cypher' and equally styled '4'-numeral attached. Both devices are IMO executed in 'Buntmetall'-based-metal and show some minimal age ie. tarnish: they have, however, maintained a 'frosted' appearance. Simply a very nice and most certainly desirable 'cyphered', 'Eisenbahnpioniere-Regiment'-related officers'-type shoulderboard: too bad that it is only a single example!
This is a truly attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless not that often seen - WH (Heeres), early-war period-, ie. 'M36'-pattern- (rounded styled), shoulderstrap having the neat bright-green- (ie. 'hellgrüner'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by an: 'Unteroffizier eines Panzer-Grenadiere-Regiments' (or: junior-sergeant who served within one of the army rifle-regiments), that comes in an overall nice (and IMO only minimally used- ie. worn-), condition. The neat strap - which is approximately 10,9 cms. sized in length - has the smooth-woolen (ie. 'moleskin'-) based and/or: darker-green-coloured-, woolen-based 'upperdeck' and has the woolen-type- and/or bright-green- (ie. 'hellgrüner'-) coloured branchcolour ie. piping attached (see pictures). The shoulderstrap shows the (standard-pattern- ie. greyish-silver-coloured-) NCO-braid attached, denoting that the strap was intended for an NCO with the rank of: 'Unteroffizier' (ie. junior-sergeant). The strap comes mounted on its original (small-sized) tongue and does show some minimal age-, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The strap is - as stated above - entirely executed from the the smooth-woolen (ie. 'moleskin'-) based wool and is as such a strap that was with certainty privately acquired at a tailor-shop or alike. Simply an attractive, IMO early- ie. mid-war-period-, 'Heeres' NCO-type, 'Panzergrenadiere'-related shoulderstrap that belonged to an: 'Unteroffizier eines Panzer-Grenadiere-Regiments': I deem that I have priced this attractive - and actually scarcely seen! - strap accordingly!
This is a truly attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless not that often seen - neatly 'cyphered' WH (Heeres), early-war period-, ie. 'M36'-pattern- (rounded styled), shoulderstrap having the neat darker-purple- (ie. 'bordeaux-roter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by a: 'Feldwebel einer Nebelwerfer-Schule' (or: sergeant who served within one of the army smoke-troop schools or training-institutes), that comes in an overall nice (and IMO only minimally used- ie. worn-), condition. The neat strap - which is approximately 10,9 cms. sized in length - has the smooth-woolen (ie. 'moleskin'-) based and/or: darker-green-coloured-, woolen-based 'upperdeck' and has the 'rayon'-type- and/or darker-purple- (ie. 'bordeaux-roter'-) coloured branchcolour ie. piping attached (see pictures). The shoulderstrap shows the (standard-pattern- ie. greyish-silver-coloured-) NCO-braid attached and shows a (regular-sized- and/or: zinc-based-) 'S'-cypher and pip period-attached, denoting that the strap was intended for an NCO with the rank of: 'Feldwebel' (ie. sergeant). Both devices show some regular age and/or minimal tarnish. The strap comes mounted on its original (small-sized) tongue and does show some minimal age-, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The strap is - as stated above - entirely executed from the the smooth-woolen (ie. 'moleskin'-) based wool and is as such a strap that was with certainty privately acquired at a tailor-shop or alike. Simply a very attractive, IMO early- ie. mid-war-period-, 'Heeres' NCO-type, 'Nebelwerfer'-related shoulderstrap that belonged to a: 'Feldwebel einer Nebelwerfer-Schule': I deem that I have priced this attractive - and actually scarcely seen! - strap accordingly!
This is an attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of bright-red-piped-, so-called: 'Allgemeine- HJ' (ie. Hitlerjugend) shoulderstraps, as were intended for usage by a: 'Hitlerjunge' who served within: 'Bann 499' (499 = 'Bann Pinneberg', residing in the 'Gebiet 6' aka: 'Nord Nordmark'), both pieces coming in a nice (albeit clearly used- ie. once shirt-attached-), condition. The straps are void of an: 'RzM'-etiket (something that is most likely caused by wear and/or usage). The straps are executed in black-coloured linnen, having bright-red-embroidered '499'-numerals and/or bright-red-coloured- (and/or rayon-based-) piping attached as to be expected. The straps never had any tongues and come as found and/or issued. The straps measure 11 cms. in length each as usually encountered. Both show some age ie. staining (and one tiny hole) IMO simply caused by moderate wear and decades of storage. Simply an attractive pair of 'Allgemeine HJ'-straps that belonged to a: 'Hitlerjunge' who served within the unusually found: 'Bann 499'!
