Fully matching - and actually scarcely seen! - pair of WH (Heeres) EM-type (ie. 'M36-/M40'-pattern- and/or 'pointed styled') 'cyphered' shoulderstraps as was intended for a: 'Soldat des Kavallerie o. Reiter-Regiments 2'

This is a very attractive - and fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-war-) period, so-called: 'M36-/M40'-pattern- (pointed-styled) 'cyphered'- and/or per regulation non-piped enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps as was intended for - and worn by! - a: 'Soldat des Kavallerie o. Reiter-Regiments 2' (or: simple soldier who served within the army cavalry unit ie. regiment numbered: '2') and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit minimally used ie. worn-), condition. The shoulderstraps - which are approximately 13,2 cms. sized in length each - have the 'standard-type'- and/or field-grey-coloured, woolen-based 'upperdecks' and have (of course) no piping attached. The straps show the neat (machine-embroidered by means of so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei'-) so-called: '2'-cypher ie. numeral (which is executed in the golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured wool as to be expected as can be seen on the pictures). The straps - which comes mounted onto their functional tongues - show as stated above some minimal usage and/or wear (some minor staining and/or dust is visible and/or present). It should be noted that all 'cyphered'-pattern shoulderstraps can easily be regarded 'fairly scarce'. Simply an attractive and/or: early-war-period, neatly 'cyphered' and/or 'Heeres'-related EM-type shoulderstrap-pair that was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat des Kavallerie o. Reiter-Regiments 2'!

Attractive - truly rarely found! - HJ- ie. BDM (ie. 'Hitlerjugend' or: 'Bund Deutscher Mädel') related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie') being a greyish-toned- and 'Feinzink-based example issued to commemorate the: 'Reichswettkampf - Köln a. Rh. - 1939'

This is an attractive - actually rarely encountered! - HJ- ie. BDM (ie. 'Hitlerjugend' or: 'Bund Deutscher Mädel') related, commemorative day-badge (ie. 'tinnie' ie. 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen') being a greyish-toned- and/or (I deem) light-weight zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based example as was issued to commemorate a specific (national!) youth-rally ie. gathering named the: 'Reichsberufs-Wettkampf der Deutschen Jugend' that was held in the year 1939 and that is entitled: 'Reichswettkampf - Köln a. Rh. - 1939' and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit surely issued ie. clearly worn-), condition. The still very detailed and/or pronounced badge is as stated very nicely preserved and was most certainly never cleaned nor polished (as can be seen on the pictures). The neatly maker- (ie. 'Hofstätter - Bonn'-) marked piece shows a detailed illustration of the Kölner town-scene (ie. depicting the famous 'Kölner Dom' and eagle-device) and is holding a so-called, enamelled: miniature 'HJ-Raute' which is totally undamaged) with above that the year-designation (1939) and stylished text as mentioned above. The badge comes naturally mounted onto its (functional) pin-/catch set-up. Simply an attractive - and with certainty rarely seen! - youth-related 'tinnie' ie. 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen' that is priced according to its rarity and/or desirability!

Superb, early- (ie. mid-) war-period example of an: 'SA-Sportabzeichen in Bronze' being a very detailed and maker- (ie. 'Berg u. Nolte'-) marked example that shows a unique, impressed bearers'-number that reads: '612787'

The truly very attractive - and I deem fairly early- (ie. eventually pre-) war-period - SA-sports-badge is as stated nicely maker-marked on its back with the makers'-designation: 'Berg u. Nolte - Lüdenscheid' (and unique serial-number that reads: '612787' and that also bears the usually encountered inscription: 'Eigentum d. SA Sportabzeichen Hauptstelle' (as is visible on the back of the sword as always). The badge - which comes naturally mounted onto its functional- and fully unaltered pin- (ie. catch-) set-up - is truly void of any wear nor age: it can easily graded: 'almost virtually mint' and was never cleaned nor polished: the original- and/or (fairly dark-coloured- and truly golden-bronze-toned) finish is fully present and/or neatly preserved (as can be seen on the pictures). Moreover, does this example retains all of its period-applied shiny finish (ie. 'Brennlack'). The badge is just a tiny bit stained caused by decades of storage only. Simply a 'virtually mint' example that is accordingly priced: one of the nicest such 'SA-Sportabzeichen' I had on offer for quite some time!

'Wiederholungsspange zum EK II. Klasse' (or: bar to the WWI IC 2nd class) being a non-maker-marked example as was produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller') named: 'Wilh. Deumer' based in the town of Lüdenscheid

This is an attractive and - I deem - only moderately worn - and nowadays actually scarcely encountered! - example of a so-called: 'Wiederholungsspange zum EK II. Klasse' (or bar to the WWI IC 2nd class) being a (presumably) non-maker-marked (ie. 'Buntmetall-versilbertes') example as was produced by the desirable maker (ie. 'Hersteller') named: 'Wilh. Deumer' based in the town of Lüdenscheid and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit most certainly issued and/or moderately worn- and/or once tunic-attached-), condition. The neat piece retains most of its 'high-polished sides (or 'hochpolierte Kanten') and is very detailed and/or pronounced as to be expected: it came together with its (somewhat confectioned) piece of WWI-period, EKII-ribbon ie. 'Bandabschnitt' (as can be seen on the pictures). The 'Spange' regrettably misses two of its four (bent but naturally still functional) prongs and is as stated above only minimally stained ie. dirty: it retains a very nice age-patina and was I deem never cleaned nor polished. These attractive - by the 'Wilhelm Deumer'-company produced 'Wiederholungsspangen zum EK II. Klasse' are nowadays quite scarcely encountered and are not that often appearing on todays' market. Of course did I price this piece according to its two missing prongs.

Stunning, WH (Heeres) 'Ärmelabzeichen für Angehörige des Sonderverbandes 287 o. 288' being a 'virtually mint- ie. unissued' example as was executed in so-called: 'BeVo'-weave pattern

This is a truly rarely encountered and/or equally desirable WH (Heeres) 'BeVo'-woven armbadge that is known as: 'Ärmelabzeichen für Angehörige des Sonderverbandes 287 o. 288' and that comes in an overall very nice (and IMO virtually mint-/unissued-), condition. This special unit (ie. aka 'Sonderverband 288') was raised on July 1st 1941 in the town of Potsdam (near Berlin) and was composed of units from all over Germany. This unit simply named: '288' or: 'z.b.V. 288' was also known as: 'Combat Group Menton', after its commander. It originally contained elite-units from all branches of the German army: anti-tank men, mountain-troops, engineers and eventually three of the new 'StuG.III' assault-guns. There was also a company of so-called: 'Brandenburgers' (being special troops trained for special operations behind the enemy lines). These units were intended to prepare the way for the DAK as it flowed across the Nile and into the Middle East and on to India. Their most important component was a group of interpreters with their own printing presses. These men knew all the languages that would be needed, from Arabic and Persian dialects to Hindi, Urdi and Sanskrit. There was also a specialized group who had been trained to seize and rebuild the oil-fields of the region. When it became obvious that Rommel's rush to the Nile was not going to be succesful, the 288th (minus its interpreters and technicians) was sent to Africa as special reinforcement-troops. During the 'Gazala Line' battles, the '288th' saw action supporting the Italian 'Ariete' against the French forces defending the town of Bir Hacheim at the southern tip of the British defenses. They also participated in the El Alamein battles, and the last of their 'StuG.IIIs' was left behind for the British to contemplate. By October 31, the 'Sonderverband 288' was reorganized and renamed into the: 'Panzer-Grenadier-Regiment “Afrika”. The armbadge on offer here is nicely woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique and is a truly beautiful example of this fantastic technique. The badge comes in a very nice- ie. virtually 'mint- ie. unissued' condition and comes as 'straightly cut-of the role' (it is NOT trimmed nor folded as can be seen on the pictures). The badge on offer here is naturally a 100% period- and/or genuine example for which I give a life-time garuantee (as always). Simply a truly attractive and rarely encountered WH (Heeres) armbadge!

Attractive, WH (Luftwaffe) 'Flakkampfabzeichen' being a 'Buntmetall'-based and (unusually seen!) non-maker-marked example as was produced by the: 'C.E. Juncker'-company and that comes as moderately worn

This is an attractive - and I deem early ie. mid-war-period - 'Buntmetall'-based and (unusually seen!) non-maker-marked so-called: WH (Luftwaffe) 'Flakkampf-Abzeichen' (or: LW anti-aircraft war-badge) as was produced by the: 'C.E. Juncker'-company and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit clearly issued- and/or moderately worn- and/or used-), condition. The attractive badge - which as stated has been only moderately worn - comes naturally mounted onto its functional pin and original (ie. fully unaltered) catch (ie. catch-set-up) (as can be seen on the pictures). This example has a greyish-silver-coloured- and separately attached 'eagle-device' in place (as always by badges by this maker) and shows nice and/or pronounced detail overall. The badge has a superb age-patina and retains most of its original (somewhat 'blackened'-) and/or typical Buntmetall-based finish: it is just a bit dirty but has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished. As stated above, is the piece a neat (and unusually!) non-maker-marked specimen that was with certaintty produced by the desirable maker: 'C.E. Juncker' based in the town of Berlin. The war-badge originated from a private-household in Germany and was never before part of a collection. Simply a truly very attractive and untouched Luftwaffe 'Flakkampfabzeichen' by the desirable 'C.E. Juncker'-company and that that is with certainty accordingly priced!

Attractive, WH (Luftwaffe) 'Fallschirmschützen-Abzeichen in Stoff' (or: cloth-based paratroopers'-jump-badge) being a nicely machine-embroidered specimen that comes in a probably issued albeit never used- ie. 'virtually mint', condition

This a truly attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - so-called: WH (Luftwaffe) 'Fallschirmschützen-Abzeichen in Stoff' (or: cloth-based paratroopers'-jump-badge) being a nicely machine-embroidered specimen that comes in presumably issued but simply never used- nor worn- ie. tunic-attached, condition. The piece is neatly machine-embroidered in multi-coloured- (and/or linnen-based) thread and simply cannot be upgraded. This particular example shows great pronounced detail in order to closely resemble its metal-based counterparts. This example was stored as such for years by the veteran to whom it was issued. These cloth-based versions were preferred by the soldiers, NCOs and/or officers 'stationed in the field' for obvious reasons. Simply an attractive and fully 'text-book' example of a WH (Luftwaffe) 'Fallschirmschützen-Abzeichen in Stoff' that is accordingly priced!

Superb - and with certainty very rarely encountered! - 'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') ie. 'BDM' ('Bund Deutscher Mädel'-) district-triangle (ie. 'Gebietsdreieck') entitled: 'Ost Ostland' (being an only moderately used- ie. worn example)

This is a 'female'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in silverish-white-coloured linnen on a black-coloured (and also linnen-based-) background. This example was with certainty issued and was - I deem - moderately used- ie. once tunic-attached but is void of its - presumably once-attached - 'RzM-etiket' (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece just shows some minimal staining caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage (as can be seen on the pictures). It should be noted that these 'exotic' BDM-district-triangles rank amongst the most difficult youth-triangles of the extensive 'Gebietsdreiecke'-series to encounter. This particular 'BDM'-piece can easily be graded: 'extremely rare'. I deem that I priced this example according to its comparative rarity and/or desirability!

Attractive, 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber' (or: silver-class infantry-assault-badge ie. IAB) being a clearly maker- (ie. small 'W'-) marked, so-called: 'flat-back'-example as was produced by the: 'Karl Würster'-company

This is an attractive - and most certainly issued- albeit hardly worn nor even used - example of an: 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber' (or: silver-class infantry-assault-badge ie. IAB) being a clearly maker- (ie. small 'W'-) marked, so-called: 'flat-back'- and/or somewhat golden-silvered, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based specimen as was produced by the: 'Karl Würster'-company and that comes in an overall very nice- (and - I deem - issued albeit hardly used nor worn-), condition. This example is a neatly maker-marked award that shows the various characteristics as only seen on IABs as produced by the: 'Würster'-company. The - very pronounded! - 'flat- ie. solid-back'-pattern war-badge seems to be totally uncleaned and has a still a very attractive and minimally tarnished age-patina: truly most of its period-applied (somewhat shiny) finish has been nicely (ie. fully) preserved (as can be seen on the pictures). The pin and/or catch (ie. set-up-) are of course fully functional and present. The piece - which originates from a private-household where it was recently found - was never cleaned and has been truly nicely preserved. Simply an honest 'Feinzink'-based, silver-class 'solid-back'-pattern IAB as was produced the desirable maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'Karl Würster' and that is accordingly priced!

Superb, 'Zellstoff'-based medal-pouch entitled: 'Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen' (or: infantry assault-badge ie. IAB) as executed in typical: 'Zellstoff'-based paper as was produced by the maker: 'Ordenfabrik Fritz Zimmermann - Stuttgart'

This is a truly unusual - and actually very scarcely encountered! - item: a darker-blue-coloured- and/or carton-based medal-pouch (sized: 13,5 x 10,5 cms.) entitled: 'Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen' (or: infantry assault-badge ie. IAB of either the silver- or bronze-class) as executed in typical: 'Zellstoff'-based paper, as was produced by the desirable maker: 'Fritz Zimmermann - Stuttgart' and that comes in an overall nice- (ie. clearly issued- and/or used- and minimally torn-), condition. The pouch is of course still functional and just shows some dust-marks and/or minimal staining (it shows a minor tear on its top): it originates from a small medal-pouch-collection I recently acquired for the web-site: it bears the black-coloured and printed makers'-designation that reads: 'Ordenfabrik Fritz Zimmermann - Stuttgart' on its back. I am convinced that this 'simply' pouch is actually x-times rarer to find than the actual IAB itself. Simply a neat piece of unmistaken scarcity and/or desirability!

Unusual, 1870/71-period so-called: 'Doppelspange' (being of the 'detachable-pattern') showing resp. a Prussian: 'Kriegsdenkmünze 1870/71 für Kämpfer' (holding 4 period-attached bars!) and a: 'Braunschweiger Landwehr DA der 2.Kl' (ie. 'Schnalle')

This is an attractive - and just moderately used- and/or worn - example of a: 1870/71-period, so-called: 'Doppelspange' (being of the partly 'detachable-pattern') showing respectively a Prussian: 'Kriegsdenkmünze 1870/71 für Kämpfer' (holding 4 period-attached bars entitled: 'Weissenburg', 'Wörth', Sedan and 'Paris') and a: 'Braunschweiger Landwehr DA der 2.Kl' (ie. 'Schnalle') and that comes as issued, minimally worn and/or recently found. The detail on the 'Kriegsdenkmünze' is nicely preserved: it has - I deem - never been cleaned nor polished and has an attractive and/or minimally tarnished (golden-toned) age-patina (as can be seen on the pictures). It retains nice details but is void of a makers'-designation. The four (period-attached) bars or 'Spangen' come in an equally nicely preserved condition. The detail on the (woven) 'Schnalle' is also nicely preserved (as can be seen on the pictures). Both awards - which show their nicely preserved, period ribbons - come both 'mounted' onto a metal-based 'clasp' that is neatly backed with two pieces of ribbon (and that shows a functional pin- ie. catch) as was intended for wearing this example on a 'going-out'- ie. dress-tunic or 'Waffenrock'. Simply a neat 1870/71-period, 'Doppelspange' that is with certainty accordingly priced!

Stunning - fully matching and nowadays very hard to find! - pair of (I deem mid-war period) white-piped, Waffen-SS NCO-type shoulderstraps as was specifically intended for usage by an: 'SS-Unterscharführer der Infanterie'

This is a truly attractive - fully matching and nowadays very hard to find! - pair of (I deem mid-war period), white-piped, Waffen-SS NCO-type shoulderstraps as was specifically intended for usage by an: 'SS-Unterscharführer der Infanterie' (ie. infantry junior-sergeant) and that comes in a very nice- (albeit moderately used and/or worn-), condition. The straps have the neat and very desirable (white-coloured) 'silk-like'-type piping and show the black-coloured 'upperdecks': they have the field-grey-woolen-coloured 'underlays' and have the 'standard-pattern', silverish-grey-toned NCO-braid attached (as can be seen on the pictures). The pair has the typical Waffen-SS-pattern- and/or: smaller-shaped tongues attached (as only observed on genuine, mid- and later-war Waffen-SS-pattern straps) and is approximately 11 cms. sized in length as more often seen. The pair - which is of the typical 'standard-issue'-production - was only slightly used: it does show some truly minimal wear and age (as can be seen on the pictures). As most certainly known are all Waffen-SS, NCO-type straps to be considered rare and very hard to encounter: those matching NCO-pairs as piped in the white ('Infanterie') branchcolour even more so! Simply a very attractive and desirable pair of Waffen-SS infantry NCO-straps that comes in a truly wonderful condition: with certainty one of the nicest pairs I had on offer for quite some time!

WWI-period, German (ie. Preussen) and/or: typical zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based so-called: 'Kreuz für Kriegshilfdienst 1916' being a non-marked example that comes mounted onto its (truly long-sized!) ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt')

Preussen) related medal (ie. so-called: 'Kreuz für Kriegshilfdienst 1916') that comes mounted onto its (truly long-sized!) ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') as issued, moderately worn and recently found.

'Bandabschnitt') as found (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply an attractive - and only moderately worn! - example of a: 'Kreuz für Kriegshilfdienst 1916': hard to find a better-preserved example for a more interesting price!

This is an attractive medal-set: 'Winterschlacht im Osten 1941-42' (ie. 'Ost'- or Eastern-Front medal) being a clearly maker- (ie. '6.'-) marked- (and/or: zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based) specimen that was produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller') named: 'Fritz Zimmermann' as was based in the town of Stuttgart and that comes together with its (somewhat confectioned, folded and approx. 19 cms. long-sized-) ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') as worn and/or recently found. The piece - which is a nicely preserved and - I deem - zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based specimen - was most certainly issued and/or clearly used and/or worn. The medal shows a somewhat 'shiny' (ie. greyish-blue-) coloured age-patina and was most certainly never cleaned nor polished and therefore are details and/or finish still nice and/or crisp. Simply an attractive, maker-marked example that is with certainty accordingly priced!

Attractive, 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1. Klasse mit Schwertern' (being a clearly maker- ie. '3'- or by: 'Wilhem Deumer'-) marked specimen that is executed in typical silverish-grey-coloured- and/or zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink')

The attractive - and I deem mid- (ie. later-) war-period - piece is executed in typical greyish-silver-coloured- and/or zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink') and comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately worn- ie. most certainly used-), condition. The naturally non-magnetic- and/or non-vaulted cross shows some blackened- ie. tarnished age-patina but was most certainly never cleaned nor polished: it has lost, however, most (ie. all) of its typical silverish-grey-coloured finish that has just 'faded away' over the years as more often (as can be seen on the pictures). The cross comes naturally mounted on its functional (flute-shaped) pin- and/or: period catch (ie. catch-set-up) which are both present and fully unaltered (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece - which shows a clearly present makers'-designation '3'-stamped onto its back (as always) - comes as found and stored for decades: it was truly never cleaned and is still a bit stained ie. dirty (as can be seen on the pictures). I deem that the KvK 1st class award is a bit underestimated by the collectors' community: they can almost be graded equally as the IC 1st class. Simply an attractive example that was produced by the desirable maker: 'Wilhelm Deumer' and that is accordingly priced!

WH-related so-called: 'Tapferkeitsauszeichnung für Angehörige der Ostvölker, 3. Klasse in Bronze mit Schwerter', being a nicely maker- (ie. '100'-) marked- and/or: 'Feinzink'-based example that comes mounted on its period ribbon

This is an attractive example of a WH-related, so-called: 'Tapferkeitsauszeichnung für Angehörige der Ostvölker, 3. Klasse in Bronze mit Schwerter' (or: 'Ostvölker' service-medal for shown bravery on the Eastern Front with swords), being a nicely maker- (ie. '100'-) marked- and/or: 'Feinzink'-based example that comes mounted on its period-attached ribbon ('Bandabschnitt') and that comes in an overall very nice- (I deem only minimally used ie. worn-) condition. The exampe on offer is the bronze- (ie. third-) class with swords and shows a clear makers-designation: '100' stamped in its ring: it is thus an example that was produced by the: 'Wächtler u. Lange'-company based in the town of Mittwaida (as is more often the case). The medal truly retains most of its (fairly glossy) golden-bronze-toned finish and still retains great pronounced detail (it is just a tiny bit tarnished- ie. dirty as to be expected but was never cleaned nor polished as can be seen on the pictures). The typical (darker-green-coloured-) ribbon is still sewn together and comes with its period-attached (ie. bronze-coloured-) pin-/catch 'attachment-clip' still attached. Simply a very nice 'Ostvölker'-related medal that will be very hard to be upgraded!

I deem just moderately worn- ie. used-), condition. The naturally non-magnetic- and/or non-vaulted cross shows some (minimal) blackened- (ie. somewhat tarnished) age-patina but was most certainly never cleaned nor polished: it retains, however, some of its typical silverish-coloured ie. 'frosted'-like finish (as can be seen on the pictures). The cross comes naturally mounted onto its functional (somewhat thicker, flute-shaped) pin- and/or: period catch (ie. catch-set-up) which are both present and fully unaltered (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece - which shows a clear makers'-designation '15' stamped onto the back of its pin - is with certainty a piece that was produced by the Austrian maker- (ie. 'Hersteller') named: 'Friedrich Orth' as was based in the town of Wien (ie. Vienna). The piece was truly never cleaned and is just a tiny bit stained ie. dirty (as can be seen on the pictures). I deem that the KvK 1st class award is a bit underestimated by the collectors' community: they can almost be graded equally as the IC 1st class. Simply an attractive - and fairly luxuriously-executed! - example of a: 'KvK 1. Klasse ohne Schwertern' by the 'Friedrich Orth'-company that is - I deem - accordingly priced!

Silver-class woundbadge (or: 'Verwundeten Abzeichen in Silber') being a nicely maker- (ie. '107'-) marked example (as was produced by the 'Hersteller' ie. maker: 'Carl Wild')

This is a neat - albeit moderately used- and worn - example of a silver-class woundbadge (or: 'Verwundeten Abzeichen in Silber') which is nicely maker-marked on its back with the makers'-designation: '107' (signifying that it is a piece that was produced by the company: 'Carl Wild' as based in the town of Hamburg) and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used ie. worn-), condition.

Superb - and rarely encountered! - 'Technische Nothilfe' (ie. 'TeNo') 'Ehrenzeichen mit Jahreszahl 1920') being a maker- (ie. 'Wilh. Fühner'-) marked and/or serial-numbered example that comes stored in its accompanying (minimally damaged) etui

This is a truly superb - and actually rarely encountered! - so-called: 'Technische Nothilfe' (ie. 'TeNo') honorary-award (ie. 'Ehrenzeichen mit Jahreszahl 1920') being a maker- (ie. 'Wilh. Fühner'-) marked and serial-numbered (ie. '1780'-marked-) example that comes stored in its accompanying (albeit somewhat damaged- but complete) black-coloured etui as issued and/or stored for decades. The very attractive and neatly multi-coloured award (that is executed in golden-bronze-toned so-called: 'Buntmetall') has a fully preserved enamelled surface (that is totally void of any enamel-damage or alike as can be seen on the pictures). It comes mounted on its functonal (and totally unaltered!) pin- ie. pin-/catch set-up. The pin shows a clearly present makers'-mark that reads: 'Wilhelm Fühner - Pforzheim' (being I deem the only producer of these rare awards). The back of the badge shows an engraved unique serial- ie. bearers'-number (that reads: '1780'). The award came stored in its period (black-coloured- and semi-leather-based-) etui that comes in an equally very nicely preserved condition. This etui - sized: 7 x 5,4 x 2 cms. - has a (beige-coloured) interior-section that hardly shows any wear (but that clearly shows an imprint of the award it held for decades). The etui is still (partly) functional but shows some wear and damage on its outside (regrettably is the glued-on 'sticker' or: 'Vignette' that normally also shows the serial- ie. bearers'-number not anymore present but one can clearly see where it once was as can be seen on the pictures). Simply in all respects a very attractive and boxed TeNo-award-set that was recently found at a private-household in Germany where it was recently found as such. It should, moreover, be noted that I have seen these rarely seen: 'Ehrenzeichen mit Jahreszahl 1920'-sets sell for much more than my asking-price!

Attractive, black- and silver-coloured, so-called: officers'-type sword-knot (ie. 'Portepee' ie.: 'Troddel') as was used for the various WH- (ie. 'Polizei' ie. police-) swords and that comes in an overall very nice condition

This is a very attractive example of a black- and/or silver-coloured, so-called: officers'-type sword-knot (ie. 'Portepee' ie.: 'Troddel') as was used for the various WH- (ie. 'Polizei' ie. police-) swords and that comes in an overall very nice- (I deem 'virtually mint'- and presumably never mounted-), condition. These officers'-type sword-knots (ie. 'Portepee' or: 'Troddel') were specifically intended for usage on the various swords (ie. Säbel) as worn by 'Offiziere' (ie. officers'-usage). The piece shows some minimal storage-age only and comes still folded- and tied together as found (as can be seen on the photos) but is void of any damage and is of course still functional. The piece was recently uncovered at a German private-household and was never before in collectors'-hands. Simply an attractive example of an (unsually black-coloured!) 'Säbel-Portepee' that is accordingly priced!

Attractive, WWI- (ie. TR-) period so-called: 'Ordenspange' (being of the 'non-detachable-pattern') showing resp. an: 'EK II. Kl.', a: 'FKK 1914-18 mit Schw.' and a: 'Deutsche Volkspflege'- (ie. civil-service-) medal

This is an attractive - and I deem only moderately used- and/or worn - example of a WWI- (ie. Third Reich) period, so-called: 'Ordenspange' or medal-bar (being of the non 'non-detachable-pattern') showing respectively an: 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' (or: iron cross second class), a: 'Frontkämpferkreuz 1914-18 mit Schwertern' (ie.: 'Kriegsteilnehmerkreuz 1914-18 mit Schw.') and a: 'Deutsche Volkspflege'- (ie. civil-service-) medal and that comes as issued, minimally worn and/or recently found. The detail on the 'EKII. Klasse' is nicely preserved: it has - I deem - never been cleaned nor polished and has an attractive and/or minimally tarnished age-patina (as can be seen on the pictures). It retains nice details but is void of a makers'-designation: moreover, does it have a nicely preserved, black-finished (ie. somewhat 'satin-like'- ie. 'shiny-style') core and is void of any damage or paint-loss. The piece is just a tiny bit dusty and/or stained but was never cleaned nor polished (as can be seen on the pictures). The FKK 1914-18 is a neat example that shows a clear makers'-designation on its back (that reads: '32 R.V. - Pforzheim'.) The detail is nicely preserved: it has - I deem - never been cleaned nor polished and has an attractive and minimally tarnished age-patina (as can be seen on the pictures). The VP-medal is executed in silver-coloured (and I deem 'Buntmetall'-based!) metal - and is a very detailed and/or pronounced example: it has a truly nice, somewhat 'tarnished' age-patina and is also a tiny bit dirty ie. stained but was most certainly never cleaned nor polished (as can be seen on the pictures). All three awards - which show their nicely preserved, period ribbons - come 'mounted' onto a metal-based 'clasp' that is not backed but that shows a functional pin- ie. catch (set-up) as was intended for wearing this example on a 'going-out'- ie. dress-tunic or 'Waffenrock'. Simply a neat WWI- (ie. TR-) period, 'Ordenspange' that is with certainty accordingly priced!

The neat - medium-sized- and/or light-weight-piece (having an approximate diameter of 5,6 cms.) has truly pronounced detail and was never cleaned nor polished: it has maintained a neat typical, silver-toned- and somewhat 'frosted' age-patina (but also shows some minimal tarnish as can be seen on the pictures). The piece came as issued and/or stored for decades. These attractive (I deem) semi-official - N.S.K.K.- (ie. D.L.V.-) related presentation-pieces were presumably used as some sort of awards and were (presumably) handed-out during a specific 'balloon-follow'-tour (named: the 'Ballonverfolgung' as was held in the year 1936). Simply a very attractive - and with certainty unusually encountered! - table-medal ie. 'Erinnerungs- o. nichttragbare Auszeichnungsplakette' that might merit some further investigative-work!

Attractive, golden-bronze coloured- (and I deem 'Buntmetall'-based-) example of a: 'Deutsch-Italienische Feldzugsmedaille' (or: German-Italian campaign medal) that comes mounted onto its (regular-sized-) piece of original ribbon

The very attractive medal is stamped by the designer/cutter ('De Marohis') and is also neatly maker-marked ('Lorioli-Milano') as is always the case with these neat and desirable commemorative Italian/German-awards. The medal truly retains most of its truly golden-bronze-coloured finish and has - I deem - never been cleaned nor polished: it is simply a tiny bit dirty and retains truly pronounced detail as to be expected. The piece comes - as stated above - mounted oton its (regular-sized- and/or neatly folded ie. confectioned) piece of original ribbon (which is actually hard to find in itself). The ribbon shows somewhat faded colours (as is more often the case) and comes mounted on its (period-attached, black-coloured) safety-pin as used ie. worn. The medal originates from a German private-household and was never before in a collection. Simply a neat and untouched example that is accordingly priced!

Attractive, 'Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse' (or: Iron Cross 2nd class) being a non-maker-marked example as was (I deem) produced by the maker: 'Fritz Zimmermann' and that comes together with its ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') as issued

The neat piece - which was I deem surely issued but that was never worn nor mounted - together with its (minimally shortened - ie. approximately 15 cms. long-sized) ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') as issued and found. The cross - which is void of any makers'-designation - was with certainty never cleaned and has a nice and/or attractive age-patina: it has, however, lost most of its so-called: 'hochpolierte Kanten' (or: polished sides) and has a minimally darkened- (ie. somewhat 'blackened') finish (as can be seen on the pictures). The cross has a nicely preserved, black-finished (ie. somewhat 'satin-like'- ie. 'matted-style'-) core that simply shows no wear nor age and that is totally void of any damage (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 cross which is - I deem - a typical piece that was produced by the maker: 'Fritz Zimmermann' as based in the town of Pforzheim (ie. 'Hersteller: 6') - has very nice and/or pronounced detail as to be expected. The IC was recently found at a German private-household and was never before in collectors'-hands. Simply an attractive 'EK II. Klasse': I deem that I did price this with certainty desirable piece accordingly!

This is a truly very attractive - and I deem issued albeit never worn- ie. 'virtually mint'! - example of a so-called: 'N.S.D.A.P. Dienstauszeichnung in Bronze' (ie. being of the '3.

'Hersteller') named: 'Friedrich Orth' in Wien (Vienna) and that comes together with its (full-length, unconfectioned ie. 17 cms.-sized-) period ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') as issued and/or stored for decades. The neat - and very detailed! - medal comes together with its period, non-confectioned ribbon and was simply never mounted. The medal has most certainly never been cleaned and retains most (ie. all!) of its truly bright-coloured- and somewhat golden-bronze-toned finish: it truly has great pronounced detail without showing any damage or alike. The award also retains all of its high-polished sides ie. 'hochpolierte Kanten' (as can be seen on the pictures). It simply shows almost no wear nor age but is minimally tarnished (ie. dirty), caused by years of storage only. The piece was most certainly awarded but was simply never worn and stored as such for decades. I deem that this one of the nicest such examples of this desirable 'N.S.D.A.P.-Dienstauszeichnung in Bronze' I had on offer for quite some time!

The attractive day-badge (ie. 'tinnie' or: 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen') is executed in bright-silverish-coloured- (ie. aluminium-based) metal: it shows some normal wear and/or moderate age but has been truly nicely preserved. The neat shield-shaped badge (measuring only 4,5 x 3,2 cms.) comes naturally mounted onto its functional pin- ie. catch(set-up) and has never been cleaned nor polished: it shows some minimal age ie. staining (as can be seen on the pictures).

It should be noted that all N.S.D.A.P.-related tinnies that were intended to commemorate an event at regional- (ie. 'Kreis'- ie.

'Erinnerungs- o. nichttragbare Auszeichnungsplakette') showing a detailed and pronounced castle ruine and N.S.K.K.-eagle-device and text that simply reads: 'Motorbrigade Niedersachsen - Niedersächsische Burgenfahrt - 26.04.1936' and that comes as stored for decades and that comes in an overall wonderful and truly nicely preserved, condition. The neat - medium-sized- and/or light-weight-piece (having an approximate diameter of 6,0 cms.) has truly pronounced detail and was never cleaned nor polished: it has maintained a neat typical, golden-bronze-toned- and somewhat 'frosted' age-patina (but also shows some minimal tarnish as can be seen on the pictures). The back of the medal shows a (hard-to-decypher) engraved text (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece came as issued and/or stored for decades. These attractive (I deem) semi-official - N.S.K.K.-related presentation-pieces were presumably used as some sort of awards and were (presumably) handed-out during a specific N.S.K.K.-related 'castle'-tour (named: the 'Niedersächsische Burgenfahrt' as was held in the year 1936). Simply a very attractive and with certainty unusually encountered table-medal ie. 'Erinnerungs- o. nichttragbare Auszeichnungsplakette' that might merit some further investigative work!

Darker-green-coloured- and/or 'standard'-pattern, WH (Kriegsmarine) ie. 'Küstenartillerie'-related rank-chevron (ie: 'Armwinkel') denoting the rank of: 'Obermatrose' (ie.: 'Obergefreiter') and that comes as recently found

This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - example of a typical darker-green-coloured- and/or 'standard'-pattern, WH (Kriegsmarine) ie. 'Küstenartillerie'-related rank-chevron (ie: 'Armwinkel') denoting the rank of: 'Obermatrose' (ie.: 'Obergefreiter') as was intended for usage on the various field-grey-coloured navy-tunics and that comes in an overall very nice- (I deem probably issued albeit never used- nor tunic-attached-), condition. The example on offer here is executed on typical darker-green-coloured- (and/or 'felt'-type) wool and shows a single stripe (albeit depicting two stripes) of the 'standard-type', golden-coloured naval-type NCO-braid attached (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece does show some minimal age and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). It should be noted that these naval- (ie. 'Küstenartillerie'-related rank-insignia are not that easily found and can easily be graded 'scarce'!

Neat, WH (KM ie. Küsten-Artillerie) cap-eagle & cocarde-set (ie. 'Schiffchen-Adler u. Kokarde für Mannschaften u. Uffz.') being a 'virtually mint- ie. unissued' set as executed in golden-yellow-coloured linnen on a darker-green-coloured background

This is neat example of an early- (ie. mid-war-) period, WH (Kriegsmarine ie. Küsten-Artillerie) cap-eagle- and cocarde-set (ie. 'Schiffchen-Adler u. Kokarde für Mannschaften u. Unteroffiziere der Küsten-Artillerie') being a 'virtually mint- ie. unissued' (and matching!) set as was executed in golden-yellow-coloured linnen on a darker-green-coloured background. Both pieces have naturally never been trimmed- nor pre-folded and just show some slight staining and fraying, simply caused by decades of storage only. The set comes as 'straightly cut-of the role' and can naturally easily serve to restore or complete any naval- ie. 'Küsten-Artillerie' side-cap ie. 'Schiffchen'. Simply a nice occasion to acquire a neat replacement side-cap-eagle/cocarde-set for a competitive price!

Attractive - fully matching and with certainty scarcely found! - bright-green-coloured- (and/or: bright-red piped!) pair of WH (Luftwaffe) collar-patches (ie. 'Kragenspiegel') as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der LW-Felddivisionen'

This is a truly attractive - fully matching and with certainty not that easily found! - typical bright-green-coloured- (and/or: bright-red-piped!) pair of WH (Luftwaffe) collar-patches (ie. 'Kragenspiegel') as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der LW-Felddivisionen' and that comes in an overall very nice- (I deem presumably issued albeit never used- nor even tunic-attached-), condition. The neat collar-tabs (ie. 'Kragenspiegelsatz für Uffz. u. Mannschaften der LW-Felddivisionen') are executed in bright-green-coloured- (smooth- ie. 'moleskin'-like-) wool and were as such intended for usage by a soldier (or even NCO) belonging to one of the the late-war-period so-called: 'Luftwaffe-Felddivisionen' (or : later-war-period, LW infantry-units ie. ground-troops). Both patches never had any gull (gulls) attached and show a brownish-beige-coloured- and/or typical 'buckram'-based backing in place (as can be seen on the pictures). The tabs - which still are 'off-factory' attached to eachother - are, moreover, nicely piped with bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured piping (which is executed in the typical rayon-like pattern) something that (I deem) most certainly signified 'Artillerie'-related usage. Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that both tabs show an identical ink-stamp on their backs that reads: 'R.B.Nr. 0/0784/0021'. Simply a very attractive and desirable LW 'Felddivisionen'-collar-tab-pair that is actually scarcely encountered: I deem that I have priced this scarcely seen and attractive LW-collartab-pair accordingly!

Commemorative, supportive 'tinnie' being a non-maker marked example depicting a detailed eagle-device and soldiers'-profile and showing a chromed bar with the text: 'Wehrfähig' period-attached

The neat golden-bronze-toned, 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'-supportive day-badge (ie. 'Tagungs- o. Veranstaltungsabzeichen' or 'tinnie') is a non-maker marked example depicting a detailed eagle-device and soldiers'-profile and is showing a chromed- and red-coloured 'bar with the text: 'Wehrfähig' attached and that comes in an overall nicely preserved condition. The badge is executed in (somewhat darkened) copper-toned, zinc- ie. pot-metal and shows some normal wear and/or moderate age. It comes naturally mounted onto its functional pin- ie. catch set-up and has (I deem) 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 medium-sized- and shield-shaped piece (having an approximate height of 5,8 cms.) is totally void of a makers'-designation but does show a: 'Ges.Gesch.'-patent-pending marking on its back. Simply a neat 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'-related day-badge ie. 'Tagungs- o. Veranstaltungsabzeichen' that is offered for a justified price!

Fully matching - and never used! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe) golden-yellow-coloured, EM- (ie. NCO-) type collar-patches (ie. 'Kragenspiegel') as was intended for usage by a member within a: 'Flieger- o. Fallschirmjäger' regiment ie. unit

The neat - and fully matching! - WH (Luftwaffe) collar-patch-pair (ie. 'Kragenspiegelsatz') is executed in the typical, golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured- and/or truly 'smooth'- (ie. 'felt-like'-type-) wool (as can be seen on the pictures). The patches were presumably issued but were simply never used- nor tunic-attached: they just show some minimal storage-age only. Both tabs never had any gulls (ie. wings) attached and are both nicely 'backed' with the beige-coloured- (and/or 'buckram'-based-) material as more often encountered. This attractive 'Kragenspiegel'-pair was recently found at a private-household in Germany and was never before in collectors'-hands. It should furthermore be noted that these genuine, 'Flieger o. Fallschirmjäger'-related LW-collar-tabs are nowadays not that easily encountered!

Attractive - and/or matching! - pair of mid- (ie. later-war-) period WH (Heeres) zinc-based skull-devices ('Totenköpfe für Pz-Kragenspiegel') as were intended for usage on (amongst others) the black woolen-based 'Panzer'-collar-tabs

This is an attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of mid- (ie. later-war-) period WH (Heeres) typical zinc-based skull-devices ('Totenköpfe für Panzer-Kragenspiegel') being of the 'two-pronged' -pattern as were intended for usage on (amongst others) the black woolen-based 'Panzer'-collar-tabs ('Kragenspiegel'), coming in an overall very nice- (simply never mounted- ie. 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'-), condition. Both skulls have both their (also zink-based) prongs firmly in place: as such, they can excellenty be used to complete a pair of 'Kragenspiegel'. The skulls were never cleaned nor polished and do show some minimal age and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a nice occasion to acquire an original - and matching! - pair of mid- (ie. later-war-) period, 'two-pronged' 'Panzer'-skull-set for a competitive price!

Attractive, 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber' (or: silver-class infantry-assault-badge ie. IAB) being a maker- (ie. 'S.H.u.Co. 41'-) marked, so-called: 'flat-back'-example as was produced by the: 'S.H.u.Co'- (ie. 'Söhni u. Heubach'-) company

This is an attractive - most certainly issued- albeit hardly worn nor used - example of an: 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber' (or: silver-class infantry-assault-badge ie. IAB) being a clearly maker- (ie. 'S.H.u.Co. 41'-) marked, so-called: 'flat-back'- and/or greyish-silvered, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based specimen as was produced by the: 'S.H.u.Co'- (ie. 'Söhni u. Heubach'-) company and that comes in an overall very nice- (and I deem issued albeit hardly used nor worn-), condition. This example is a maker-marked award that shows the various characteristics as only seen on IABs as produced by the: 'S.H.u.Co'- (ie. 'Söhni u. Heubach'-) company. The - very pronounded! - 'flat- ie. solid-back'-pattern war-badge seems to be totally uncleaned and has a still a very attractive and somewhat tarnished age-patina: truly most of its period-applied (shiny) finish has been nicely preserved (as can be seen on the pictures). The pin and/or catch (ie. set-up-) are of course fully functional and present. The piece - which originates from a private-household where it was recently found - was never cleaned and has been nicely preserved. Simply an honest 'Feinzink'-based, silver-class 'hollow-back'-pattern IAB as was produced the desirable maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'S.H.u.Co'- (ie. 'Söhni u. Heubach') and that is accordingly priced!
