The truly attractive piece - which is as mentioned above a maker- (ie. 'GB'-marked example that was produced by the: 'Gustav Brehmer'-company - just shows some moderate age ie. dust and/or staining: it is void of any real damage and was just moderately used- and/or worn. The buckle truly retains most of its period-applied, olive-green-coloured- (and somewhat 'matted-styled'-) paint (as can be seen on the pictures). The buckle - which truly retains pronounced detail - came mounted on its original greenish-coloured- (and/or 'webbing'-fabricated-) tab as to be expected. These belt-buckles saw wide-spread usage within the DAK (or: 'Deutsches Afrika Korps') but saw also usage in the later-war years (for example in the Balkan- and/or Mediterranean-) combat-areas. It should be noted that these army-type 'tropical-issue' belt-buckles can nowadays easily be graded 'fairly scarce': even more so when they come in this nicely preserved condition as this example on sale. Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that this example is -next to the makers'-designation - also dated: '41' (as is visible under the catch as more often seen). I deem that I have priced this attractive, early war-period and truly 'tropical-issued'-example accordingly!
The attractive oval-shaped badge (ie. 'tinnie' or: 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen') is executed in silver-coloured- (and I deem Buntmetall-based-) material and depicts a detailed shield with a stylised, eagle- and swastika-device and showing the text that reads: 'N.S.L.B. - Gau Thüringen - Gebietstreffen Jena - 22. 23. Sept. 1934' . The detailed badge - that shows some normal wear and/or moderate age - has an approximate height of 4 cms. and comes naturally mounted onto its functional pin- (ie. pin-/catch-) set-up and has never been cleaned nor polished: it shows some minimal staining (as can be seen on the pictures) but is still very detailed and/or pronounced. The 'tinnie' retains most of its (minimally tarnished) finish (as can be seen on the pictures). It should be noted that all N.S.L.B.-related tinnies that were intended to commemorate an event at regional- (ie. 'town'-) level saw much more limited usage and can easily be graded 'fairly scarce' even more so when they are from the fairly early date '1934' (such as the piece on offer here). Simply a neat - and unusually seen! - 'N.S. Luftschutzbund'-related so-called: 'Tagungs- o. Veranstaltungsabzeichen' that is offered for a justified price!
This is a truly interesting example of an aluminium-based WH (Luftwaffe) - and/or I deem 'Luftnachrichten'- (ie. signals'-) related - ID-disc (ie. 'Erkennungsmarke') bearing the clearly stamped unit-designation that reads: 'Ln. Stelle (mot.Z.) Fl.H.Kdtr.(E) Gerolzhofen' (and as such being a disc that was intended for a soldier who (I deem) served within (ie. possibly even commanded!) the: motorised, 'Luftnachrichtenstelle' of the: 'Fliegerhorst-Kommandantur' as based in the town of Gerolzhofen and that comes as issued and/or worn. The disc - which is executed in a clear and fine letter-type also shows the soldiers' blood-group-type ('Type 0') on its back and is still a tiny bit dirty and/or stained but was never cleaned nor polished. It comes as worn and/or stored for decades and originates from a private household somewhere in Germany. Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that this ID-disc bears the ID-numeral: '1': normally, this first numeral was given to the commander of the unit. Simply a neat 'Luftnachrichten'- (ie. signals'-) related ID-disc that belonged to a soldier (ie. commanding-officer?) who served within motorised, 'Luftnachrichtenstelle' of the: 'Fliegerhorst-Kommandantur' as based in the town of Gerolzhofen. I deem that this neat disc is accordingly priced!
This is an attractive - and with certainty rarely found! - oval-shaped, so-called: N.S.F.K.- (or: 'National Socialistisches Flieger Korps'-) related 'tinnie' (ie. 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen') that was issued to commemorate a specific N.S.F.K.-rally ie. national-competition entitled: 'N.S.F.K. Rhön Segelflug Wettbewerb - 23.7-6.-8-39' and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit issued- and I deem moderately worn-), condition. The very detailed and/or pronounced badge - which is executed in somewhat bright-toned-, bronze-coloured and I deem copper-based metal - truly shows extraordinary detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished. The piece - which is as stated above showing a clear makers'-designation that reads: 'G. Brehmer - Marneukirchen' on its back - shows the: N.S.F.K.-logo (ie. 'fliegender Mensch') and text as mentioned above (as can be seen on the pictures). The badge comes naturally mounted onto its (functional) pin- ie. catch set-up. Simply a very attractive - and rarely seen! - N.S.F.K.- (or: 'National Socialistisches Flieger Korps'-) related 'tinnie' ie. 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen' that is accordingly priced!
This is a neat - and actually rarely encountered! - WH (Heeres) breasteagle (ie. 'Brustadler für Mannschaften u. Unteroffiziere') being of the 'last-ditch'- (ie. later-war-period-) and entirely 'printed'-pattern and that comes in an overall very nice (ie. never used- ie. 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'-), condition. These printed versions of the 'standard-pattern' army-type breasteagle were introduced in late 1944 ie. beginning 1945 and saw only limited usage. They are sometimes found on the - battle-dress like-model-, so-called: '1944-type' Heeres tunics. I personally have also seen this printed-type eagles being (originally!) attached to such a late-war M44-tunic. The piece on offer here comes in a fully unconfectioned format and is just a tiny bit stained and/or does show some minimal 'wrinkled areas' (simply caused by handling over the years). The piece came as 'straightly cut-out' of a larger sheet (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a truly rarely encountered WH (Heeres) breast-eagle that comes in a never used- ie. 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'- condition!
I recently uncovered six - fully matching and/or actually truly scarcely encountered! - pairs of WH (Heeres) - I deem - early-war-period (ie. 'M36'-/'M40'-pattern and/or rounded-style-) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps as piped in the typical darker-green- (ie. 'grüner') coloured branchcolour as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der Gebirgsjäger-Truppen' (or: simple mountain-troops soldier) and that come all six in an overall very nice- (ie. simply never used- ie. 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'), condition. The neat straps - which have the 'standard'-pattern, darker-green-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks' - have the green- (ie. 'grüner') coloured (and/or desirable 'silk-like'-type-) piping, attached. The straps measure approximately 11 cms. in length and come naturally mounted onto their functional tongues. The pairs show - as stated above - no usage nor wear (just some minimal age, dust and/or staining is visible and/or present). These six pairs originate from a German 'Hersteller' and were part of the left-overs of an old tailor-shop where they were recently uncovered. I deem that my asking-price (per pair) is justified and adjusted to their comparative scarcity. It should be specifically mentioned that these shoulderstraps are genuine, period examples and have NOTHING to do with the 'high-end' copies that are offered on todays market: of course, do they come with a lifetime-garuantee on their originality (as always). My asking-price is naturally intended per single pair. In any case is this a superb occasion to acquire a very attractive and desirable 'Gebirgsjäger-Truppen'-related, enlisted-mens-type shoulderstrap-pair that was never part of a collection!
This is a very attractive - and truly extremely rarely found! - later-war-period, WH (Luftwaffe) summer-type flight-jacket or: 'LW Sommer-Fliegerjacke für Flugzeugbesatzungen' (ie. 'Reichsverteidigung') being a truly wonderful example that comes in a fully untouched and/or nicely preserved condition. These very popular jackets saw usage during the fierce air-battles that took place over Germany in 1944/45 (ie. the so-called: 'Reichsverteidigung'). The flight-jacket on offer here comes in a truly wonderful condition and was only moderately worn and/or used (something that is rare in itself: most of these were simply 'worn-out after the war'). It is constructed of typical, greyish-blue-coloured linnen and is naturally lined with thin-shaped, linnen-based greyish-blue cloth (it is of the rarely found summer-pattern). The jacket retains its (undamaged) linnen- (ie. woolen-) based 'bottom'-rim and retains all (glass-based) buttons and functional (white-coloured- and plastic-like!) front-zipper (which is of the make: 'RiRi' as to be expected). The flight-jacket just shows some minimal age, wear and staining but comes in an overall very nicely preserved condition. Both 'inner'-machettes in both arms are also present and in place: one of these misses its snap-on-button: the other one retains its (functional) snap-on button of the make: 'Stocko' (as can be seen on the pictures). The jacket shows a 'standard'-pattern LW eagle-device in place (which is 100% period- and 'off-factory' attached by means of machine-stitching as can be noticed on the pictures). The piece is void of any marking- nor date (it most likely had once a makers'-etiket attached but this has been presumably period-removed). The piece just misses its tiny, leather-based 'loop' on its front (as can be seen on the pictures). This 'loop' was present in order to 'guide' the cabling ie. oxygen-mask-tube during flight and was often period-removed by the pilots (as is the case with this example). I deem that the 5 pictures are self-explanatory to see that this piece comes in a wonderful condition: I can of course always provide additional pictures if needed. It should be noted that these attractive WH (Luftwaffe) summer-type flight-jackets or: 'Luftwaffe Sommer-Fliegerjacken für Flugzeugbesatzungen' are much more rarely seen than the (similarly-styled) winter-versions and untouched examples as the one on offer here are almost never appearing on todays market: I deem that I have priced this beautifully preserved and/or untouched example accordingly!
This is a truly very attractive - fully matching and with certainty rarely encountered! - WH (Heeres), mid-war period- (ie. 'M43'-pattern) neatly 'cyphered' NCO-type shoulderstraps (ie. 'Schulterstücke für Unteroffiziere des Heeres') as piped in the neat white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour as was specifically intended for - and worn by! - a: 'Feldwebel des Wachbatallions Berlin' (or: sergeant- and/or infantry-NCO who served within the famous guard-batallion based in the town Berlin) and that comes in an overall very nice- (and only minimally used ie. worn-), condition. The neat straps - which have the 'standard'-pattern, field-grey-coloured and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks' are textbook in all facets. They show the neat white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured- (and/or: desirable 'silk-like'-type-) piping attached (as can be seen on the pictures). The straps which measure approximately 11,2 cms. in length each come naturally mounted onto their functional tongues and come of course in a very nice, ie. fully 'text-book' condition, overall. The shoulderstraps show a matching pair of - I deem - 'Buntmetall'-based so-called: 'W'-cyphers (and equally styled- and/or regular-sized-) pips attached. Moreover, does the pair show the 'standard'-type, silverish-grey-coloured NCO-braid attached denoting the NCOs-rank of: 'Feldwebel' (ie. sergeant). The straps show - as stated above - only minimal usage ie. wear (some age, dust and/or staining is visible and/or present as can be seen on the pictures). I deem this a superb occasion to acquire a very attractive and most certainly desirable NCO-type, 'Infanterie'- ie. 'Wachbatallion Berlin'-related shoulderstrap-pair: only the second such rare NCO-type pair in this particular rank that I have ever had on offer!
This is a truly attractive - and I deem only minimally used- and/or worn example - of a two-pieced medal-bar (ie. 'Spange') showing respectively an: 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' (or: iron cross second class) and a: 'WH (Heeres o. Kriegsmarine) Dienstauszeichnung 4. Stufe' (as was intended for 4 years of loyal-service) that has a neat and pronounced WH eagle-device period-attached and that come both period-mounted as a so-called: 'Doppelspange' and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit issued- and I deem only minimally worn-), condition. The iron cross - which is an example by a by me unidentified maker - was with certainty never cleaned and has a very nice and/or attractive age-patina: it has lost most of its so-called: 'hochpolierte Kanten' (or: polished sides) and has a somewhat tarnished appearance (as can be seen on the pictures). The cross has very nice and/or pronounced detail and has a nicely preserved, black-finished (ie. somewhat 'matted'- ie. satin-like) core: it is totally void of any paint-damage or alike (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece is just a tiny bit dusty and/or stained but was never cleaned nor polished. The 'WH-Dienstauszeichnung 4. Stufe' (as was intended for 4 years of loyal-service within the army or navy) has a neat and pronounced (regular-sized) WH (Heeres-type) eagle-device period-attached comes mounted on its confectioned, darker-blue- (ie. cornflower-blue-) coloured ribbon. The detail on this example is simply extraordinary: it has never been cleaned nor polished and has an attractive and somewhat 'frosted'- (ie. minimally tarnished) age-patina. It retains gorgeous details and has a great ie. only minimally darkened- ie. tarnished age-patina: it retains all of its fairly 'glossy'- and/or: silver-toned finish. The 'Spange' just shows some minimal dirt and/or dust acquired over the years: the ribbons show some equal minor usage and/or staining. The 'Spange' has truly very nice detail and is nicely 'backed' with a piece of brownish-beige-coloured wool (something that is more often seen) and comes naturally mounted on its (still functional) pin-ie. catch set-up. Simply an attractive and desirable example of a: Heeres o. Kriegsmarine-related 'Doppelspange' that can be mounted on almost any tunic!
This is an attractive - and completely matching! - medal-set: 'Winterschlacht im Osten 1941-42' (or: Eastern Front medal) being an acttractive and/or neatly maker- (ie. '25'-) marked specimen that comes packed in its original pouch of issue as was produced by the maker- (ie. 'Hersteller') named: 'Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Graveur-, Gold- und Silberschmiede-Innungen' as was based in the town of Hanau am Main as recently found and that comes in an overall nice- (ie. I deem issued- but hardly worn-), condition. The medal came together with its original, confectioned-, pre-folded (and approx. 19 cms. long-sized-) ribbon and came packed in its neat ('Zellstoff'-based-) and/or: beige-brown-coloured, carton-based pouch. The medal - which is a nicely preserved zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based specimen - was I deem issued and/or once mounted. The medal has a somewhat 'matted' (ie. greyish-blue-) coloured age-patina and was most certainly never cleaned nor polished and therefore are details and/or finish still very nice and/or crisp. The piece shows some rust-staining on its ring only. The pouch comes as stated above in an equally nice and complete condition: it shows the printed makers'-designation of the maker- (ie. 'Hersteller') named: 'Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Graveur-, Gold- und Silberschmiede-Innungen' (as is printed on its back as stated above). Simply a neat and completely matching example that is I deem accordingly priced!
