This is a truly very attractive - and rarely encountered and fully matching! - WH (Heeres), IMO early-war period (ie. 'M36'-model and/or rounded-style-) 'cyphered' NCO-type shoulderstraps, as piped in the neat white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and worn by! - a: 'Feldwebel des Wachbatallions Berlin' (or sergeant- and/or infantry-soldier that served within the famous guard-batallion based in the town Berlin) and that comes in an overall very nice (albeit clearly used ie. worn-), condition. The neat straps - which have the 'standard' darker-green-coloured- and/or smooth woolen-based 'upperdecks' are IMO originating from a private tailor-shop. They show the neat white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured- (and/or: 'silk-like'-type-) piping attached. The straps which measure approximately 10,5 cms. in length each, come mounted on their functional tongues and are of course in a nice, ie. fully 'text-book' condition, overall. The shoulderstraps show a matching pair of alumnium-based 'W'-cyphers (and IMO) zinc-based pips attached. Moreover, does the pair show the 'standard'-type, silver-coloured NCO-braid attached denoting the NCOs-rank of: 'Feldwebel' (ie. sergeant). The straps show - as stated above - moderate usage ie. wear (some fair age, dust and/or staining is clearly visible and/or present as can be seen on the pictures). Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that the NCO who wore this set was once promoted: something that can be corroborated by the fact that the straps show a (by hand!) added stripe of NCO-braid. 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!
The attractive cross - which is a minimally vaulted ie. somewhat 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 an evident specimen as was produced by the: 'Ferdinand Hoffstätter'-company based in the town of Bonn/Main - comes naturally mounted on its original- (and fully functional-) straight-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 only) and has all the specific specifications of a by: 'Hoffstätter'-produced example. Most of its off-factory applied so-called: 'hochpolierte Kanten' (or polished sides) have, however, disapeared as can be seen on the pictures. The award is a 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 attractive example (by an unusally encountered maker!) accordingly!
This is an attractive - and with certainty scarcely encountered! - D.A.F.- (ie. 'Deutsches Arbeitsfront') specialist-armbadge, as executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern, as was intended for usage by an: 'Übungswart' (being some sort of instructor- ie. trainer) and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit moderately used- ie. worn- and/or: tunic-removed-), condition. The badge on offer here - showing a swastika-sign surrounded by the D.A.F. 'Zahnrad'-sign ie. logo with below that the text: 'Übungswart' - is beautifully executed in so-called 'BeVo'-weave pattern and is backed with: bright-red-coloured- (and/or: linnen-based-) cloth (see pictures). The badge - which measures 9,5 x 8,5 cms. - is clearly worn and shows some normal wear, age and/or staining. Simply an attractive and most certainly scarcely encountered D.A.F.-related arm-badge!
This is an attractive example of a: HJ (ie. Hitlerjugend) beige- ie. tan-coloured-, 'M34'-pattern side-cap (ie. 'Schiffchen o. Sommermütze'), being a minimally used example still retaining its period-attached: 'RzM-Etiket' that comes in an overall very nice (and IMO only minimally used- ie. worn-), condition. The piece has the bright-red-coloured- and rayon-based piping and shows a (complete but somewhat dried-out, leather-based sweat-band (as can be seen on the pictures). The cap is of a fair size and will with certainty fit a mannequins'-head. The cap has the ('silk-like'-type- and golden-brown-coloured-) lining and shows as stated above its period-attached: 'RzM-Etiket' included (which is firmly sewn into the lining (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece shows a (period-attached- and/or machine-sewn-) 'BeVo'-woven 'HJ-Raute' attached on its front and shows the minimal signs of having been worn. The piece originates from a private household and was never before in collectors'-hands. Simply a very nice example of a 'HJ-Schiffchen o. Sommermütze' that will be very hard to be upgraded!
This is a very attractive - and actually quite scarcely encountered! - example of a 5-pieced, WWI (ie. WWII-) period ribbon-bar (ie. 'Feld-/Bandspange'), showing respectively the ribbons for a: 'Frontkämpferkreuz 1914-18 mit Schwerter' (ie.: 'Kriegsteilnehmerkreuz mit Schwerter') both the so-called: 'N.S.D.A.P. Dienstauszeichnungen 2. u. 3. Stufe' (or: N.S.D.A.P. loyal-service medals for respectively 10 ie. 15 years of loyal service, both having their detailed miniature-devices attached) and two (Austrian) WWI-period awards, all five ribbons coming in an overall very nice (albeit IMO used and/or minimally worn-), condition. Both - very detailed! - (eagle-) devices (as well as the three sword-devices) have a neat and/or minimally 'frosted' albeit very detailed appearance: they retain a nice and/or bright-coloured age-patina. The piece - with shows its five bars in the 'standard' ie. regular (1,5 cm. wide-) version - is as can be noticed in a very nice condition overall: it is naturally fully functional and comes on its functional pin-/catch set-up: it is mounted on a 'chromed-steel'-based backing-plate (as is more often observed). Simply a very attractive 'N.S.D.A.P.-related 'Feld-/Bandspange' that is not often offered for sale: ideal to upgrade or decorate any N.S.D.A.P. and/or party-related tunic!
This is an attractive - and actually unusally found! - neatly enamelled, so-called: DLV (ie. 'Deutscher Luftsport Verband') visor-cap device (ie. 'Abzeichen für die Schirmmütze') being a neatly maker-marked example that comes in an overall very nice (albeit clearly cap-removed-), condition. The piece - which is executed in bright-silver-toned metal (ie. 'Buntemetall') - has an approximate 'wingspan' of 5,2 cms. and comes mounted on both its (period-attached) prongs (which were used but that are still fully functional). It retains a fully undamaged enamelled surfaced and shows a makers'-designation on its back that reads: 'Wurster - D.L.V. - M.Neukirchen': next to this it also shows a: 'Ges.Gesch.'-patent-pending marking (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very attractive (and early- ie. pre-war-period!) visor-cap-device that belonged to an official who served within the predecessor of the German Luftwaffe being the: 'Deutscher Luftsport Verband'!
This is an attractive example of a WH (Heeres) breast-eagle as was executed 'BeVo'-type-, so-called: 'flat-wire'-weave-pattern and that comes pre-mounted on a piece of darker-green-coloured wool, as was intended for usage by soldiers (ie. NCOs) on their dress-tunics (ie. 'Waffenröcke' or: 'Ausgehjacken' and that comes in a very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued-), condition. The piece was 'off-factory'-folded and/or trimmed and was period-sewn on a piece of darker-green-coloured- and/or smooth-type wool as to be expected: it just shows some minimal age ie. staining but was IMO never tunic-attached. It deals with the detailed and 'standard-pattern' WH-eagle that saw usage on most (pre-war- and/or early-war-period-) field-grey-coloured-, so-called: 'Waffenröcke' or: 'Ausgehjacken'. Simply a great piece that is ideally fitted to restore any 'Waffenrock' or to be stored as such in any insignia-collection!
The neat - and fairly small-sized - piece - which is IMO only minimally used- and which is totally undamaged - is neatly maker-marked with a makers'-logo (circle-logo with numbers - see pictures) on its inside as is usually encountered. These containers rank among the 'basic'-equipment of any front-soldier and were stored in the bread-bag. This example - which still holds a period-piece of soap - comes in an overall very nice condition and is as stated void of any damage and that only shows some minimal wear: great to complete any WH equipment set-up ie. bread-bag contents!
This is a neat - and nowadays scarcely encountered! - IMO later- (ie. mid-war-) period WH (Heeres) 'Panzer'-type breast-eagle, as was executed in bluish-grey coloured linnen on a black coloured and/also linnen-based background as was specifically intended for usage on the black-coloured 'wrap-around' tunics and that comes in an overall very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued-) condition. The piece has naturally never been trimmed- nor pre-folded and shows some slight staining, simply caused by decades of storage only.The eagle comes as 'straightly cut-of the role' and can it naturally easily serve to restore any black-woolen Panzer 'wrap-around' tunic. Simply a neat replacement-eagle which is nowadays hard to encounter if needed!
The attractive cross - which is a minimally vaulted ie. somewhat 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 an evident specimen as was produced by the: 'Fritz Zimmermann'-company based in the town of Stuttgart - comes naturally mounted on its original- (and 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 only) and has all the specific specifications of a by: 'Fritz Zimmermann'-produced example. Most of its off-factory applied so-called: 'hochpolierte Kanten' (or polished sides) have, however, disapeared as can be seen on the pictures. The award is a 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!
