The attractive - and IMO with certainty high-quality produced! - lapel-pin (ie. 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen') is depicting both Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini and is showing the swastika and/or: 'Italian Facses'-symbol and text: 'Berlin - Roma'. It is executed in greyish-silver-coloured metal (ie. 'Buntmetall') and only shows minimal wear and/or age but nevertheless retains most (ie. all-) of it silver-greyish toned finish without showing any defaults. The badge - which measures approximately 2,7 cm. in height - comes naturally mounted on its functional pin-/catch set-up (as can be seen on the pictures). The very attractive and/or pronounced piece has IMO never been cleaned nor polished: it shows some minimal age ie. staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The high-quality lapel-pin - which shows on its back the makers'-designation: 'Deschler u. S. - München 9' - is quite detailed and pronounced. Simply an attractive and with certainty high-quality produced! - lapel-pin (ie. 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen') commemorating the German-Italian cooperation!
This is a very attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - neatly enamelled-, lapel-pin (ie. 'Hoheitsabzeichen'), as was intended for usage by the members within the: 'Volksbund der Deutschen in Ungarn' and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. The alumium-based badge (showing a black-coloured- ie. painted area) has an approximate height of of 3,3 cms. The lapel-pin shows the eagle-symbol (ie. 'Reichsadler') that shows an oval-shaped shield with the capital 'A'-character (as can be seen on the pictures). The lpel-pin comes mounted on its functional pin and shows a clear makers-signification (that reads: 'BPest'). The piece shows some minimal age ie. staining caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage only. The piece originates from a private household in Germany and was never before in collectors'-hands. A similar example is also figured in the Heering-Hüsken lapel-pin catalogue wherein it is given a unique reference-number (G8 05 F) and estimated value of 280 Eu. Simply an attractive - and with certainty rarely encountered! - 'Mitglieds- o. Hoheitsabzeichen': only the first such attractive and rarely seen lapel-pin I ever had on offer!
This is a very attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - neatly enamelled-, lapel-pin (ie. 'Mitgliedsabzeichen'), as was intended for usage by the members within the: 'Volksbund der Deutschen in Ungarn' and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. The multi-coloured- and/or circular-shaped badge (showing bright-red- and white-coloured areas) has an approximate diameter of 2,3 cms. (and has as such the identical format of a regular N.S.D.A.P.-membership lapel-pin). The lapel-pin shows the rounded swastika-symbol that is surrounded by the wording: 'Volksbund der Deutschen in Ungarn' (as can be seen on the pictures). It is totally void of a makers-signification and comes mounted on its (functional- and/or unaltered-) regular-styled-, catch set-up. The piece is totally void of any (enamel-) damage and does show some minimal age ie. staining caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage only. The piece originates from a private household in Germany and was never before in collectors'-hands. A similar example is also figured in the Heering-Hüsken lapel-pin catalogue wherein it is given a unique reference-number (G8 05 A). Simply an attractive - and with certainty rarely encountered! - 'Mitgliedsabzeichen': only the second such attractive and rarely seen example I ever had on offer!
This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - neatly enamelled-, Spanish- (ie. WH-Heeres-) related-, metal-based so-called: 'Falange'-lapel-pin, as was intended for the Spanish volunteers serving within the 'Blue Division' (ie. 'Division Azul'), that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit clearly used- ie. worn-), condition. The multi-coloured- and/or shield-shaped badge (showing blue-, red- and yellow-coloured areas) measures approximately 2 cms. in height and depicts the five, upward-positioned arrows which are mounted under an iron cross symbol with swastika: moreover, does it show the wording: 'España' (as can be seen on the pictures). It is totally void of a makers-signification and comes mounted on its (functional- and/or unaltered-) button-hole catch construction. It is totally void of any (enamel-) damage and does show some minimal age ie. staining caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage. The piece originates from a private household in Germany and was never in collectors'-hands. Simply an attractive - and with certainty! - scarcely encountered piece of (IMO) Spanish-produced volunteer-related insignia: only the second such attractive and rarely seen example I ever had on offer!
This is an attractive, DJ (ie. 'Deutsches Jungvolk') arm-badge, as was intended for - and/or clearly worn by! - a member who served within the: 'Oberbann 4', and that comes in an overalll nice (albeit clearly used ie. shirt-removed-), condition. The white-coloured rune-sign - executed on a bright-blue- (ie. 'blauer'-) coloured background and woven in the neat so-called: 'BeVo'-weave pattern as always - signifies that its bearer belonged to the DJ 'Oberbann 4'. The badge shows some slight staining and is somewhat dirty caused by normal usage and/or wear: it has neatly been pre-folded- and trimmed (but is not damaged whatsoever). The paper 'RzM' etiket is regrettably not anymore present as is more often the case (it has most certainly dissapeared during regular usage ie. wear). Simply an attractive example that will be hard to be upgraded: one of the more difficult ones to encounter of the series of six different ones!
This attractive - and IMO early-period! - example is neatly light-blue-coloured (as to be expected) and was executed on a tropical-pattern-, brownish- (ie. typical tan-) coloured and/or: linnen-based background as to be expected. The piece comes - as stated above - in a nice albeit clearly trimmed- and/or pre-folded- condition (it was clearly trimmed and/or cut-out - see pictures). The piece is just a tiny bit stained (ie. faded) caused by years of storage and/or moderate wear but has maintained nice detail overall. These original 'BeVo'-woven examples are getting nowadays almost impossible to find something that merits its IMO justified asking-price. The piece was with certainty carefully period-trimmed- (ie. partly folded-) and can as such perfectly serve to restore any tropical-tunic (or even shirt). These 'tropical-issue-' (ie. DAK- or 'Deutsches Afrika Korps'-related-) breasteagles can easily be graded 'scarce' and are nowadays not that often offered for sale!
The attractive insignia-piece on offer here is neatly executed in so-called: 'BeVo'-weave pattern (and is executed in silver-greyish-coloured linnen on a black-coloured- and/or: also linnen-based background). As such, it can naturally easily be re-mounted on a Waffen-SS side-cap (ie. 'Schiffchen') (or even 'M43'-type-cap ie. 'Einheitsfeldmütze'). As stated above, comes the skull in a carefully confectioned- ie. once cap-attached condition: it was once sewn onto a cap (IMO by hand) and was carefully cap-removed (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece - which is of the desirable larger-sized format! - is clearly used and somewhat stained (simply caused by moderate wear and/or years of storage). It should be noted that these original Waffen-SS-related cap-skulls are almost impossible to find and can nowadays easily be graded 'very scarce'!
The very attractive, neatly enamelled and multi-piece constructed medal is IMO executed in bright golden-coloured metal (ie. 'Buntmetall') and is a very detailed and/or pronounced example: it has a truly nicely preserved age-patina, is fully void of any enamel damage and is also minimally dirty but was IMO never cleaned nor polished (see pictures). The medal came together with its full-length- (ie. approximately 24 cms. long-sized and/or neatly pre-folded-) piece of (truly bright-red-coloured- ie. not-faded-) ribbon as issued and/or found. Simply a very nice and attractive example that is simply impossible to be upgraded!
This is a truly very attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - example of a: 'Sonderabzeichen für das Niederkämpfen von Panzerkampfwagen durch Einzelkämpfer' (or: specific arm-badge for the single-handed destruction of a tank) being an example of the silver-class that comes in a wonderfull- and only minimally used- ie. worn, condition. The badge - which is a non-magnetic example as more often - still retains the (protective) darker-blue-coloured- and/or smooth-type-, woolen-based backing in place and shows its (presumably) zinc-based 'back-plate' and (three) pins in place. I deem that this particular example was issued and minimally worn: it was once tunic-attached and still shows some stitching-holes (as can be seen on the pictures). The truly detailed tank-badge retains most of its 'blackened' finish showing some of its metal-based underlay (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a great (and naturally 100% garuanteed period-) piece that will be very hard to be upgraded and that is IMO priced according to its comparative rarity and/or unmistaken desirability!
This is a very attractive - and with certainty rarely encountered! - 'DAF- ('Deutches Arbeitsfront') ie. 'KDF'- ('Kraft durch Freude'-) related-, darker-blue-coloured- (period-souvenir) cap-tally (ie. 'Mützenband') entitled: 'M.S. Wilhelm Gustloff' that comes in a very nice (ie. IMO never used- nor worn-), condition. The cap-tally - which is woven in multi-coloured linnen on a darker-blue-coloured background comes in a full-length condition and measures approximately 87 cms. in length. The piece is neatly excecuted in so-called: 'BeVo'-like weave-pattern - and is as stated woven in (bright!) multi-coloured (ie. almost 'flat-wire'-like-) thread (as can be seen on the pictures). It does shows some (minimal) age, wear and/or staining but is totally void of any damage. I could not find much reference-material concerning this neat souvenir-related item: I deem that these attractive pieces could be acquired on the (by the 'DAF- ('Deutches Arbeitsfront') ie. 'KDF'- ('Kraft durch Freude'-) organised-) holidays on board of the M.S. Gustloff and am convinced that this is rarely seen example that would merit additional investigative work. As most certainly known was the 'M.S. Wilhelm Gustloff' subject of an air-raid that took place on 30 January 1945. It was hit by Soviet sub-marine S-13 in the Baltic Sea while evacuating German civilians, Nazi officials and military personnel from Gdynia (now: Gotenhafen) as the Red Army advanced. Its is estimated that 9,400 people died, which makes it the largest loss of life in a single ship sinking in history. I deem that this attractive and desirable example is accordingly priced!
