Superb, (pre)WWI-period- and neatly enamelled, commemorative 'Königreich Sachsen'-medal (ie. so-called: 'Albrechts-Orden, Ritterkreuz der 2. Klasse mit Schwerten') that comes mounted onto its period-ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt')

This is a truly very attractive - and actually quite scarcely found! - example of a (pre)WWI-period- and neatly multi-coloured enamelled, commemorative medal (ie. so-called: 'Albrechts-Orden, Ritterkreuz der 2. Klasse mit Schwerten des Königreich Sachsens' or: Albert-Orden, Knights Cross second class with swords of the Kingdom of Saxony) being a very nicely preserved - and fully undamaged! - example that comes mounted onto its period-folded ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt'). The medal comes in a wonderful and totally untouched ie. pristine condition: it was never cleaned nor polished and retains a fully preserved silver-toned age-patina (something that is also valid for the golden-toned swords!). The piece is, moreover, nicely maker-marked (on both sides ie. 'arms') with the makers'-designation: 'Schaffenberg - Dresden' and is also stamped with a capital 'S'-character on lower 'arm' (as can be seen on the pictures). I deem that I have priced this very attractive example according to its fully untouched condition and unmistaken scarcity!

Attractive example of a DRK (ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz' or German Red Cross) nurses'-badge as was intended for a: 'Helferin' being a maker- (ie. 'F&R'-) marked example that comes in a fully untouched condition

The attractive badge is - I deem - made-out of silver-coloured zinc-based metal (ie. 'Buntmetall') and has an immaculate enamelled surface (truly no damages whatsoever can be noticed as can be seen on the pictures). The badge is an unusually(!) maker- (ie. 'F&R - St. 3'-) marked example that has - I deem - only minimally worn: it has never been cleaned nor polished (and is still a tiny bit stained and/or dirty) and comes of course mounted onto its functional- and/or unaltered pin- ie. pin/catch (-set-up). These badges were also worn by the Germanic volunteers. Next to the mentioned makers'-designation does the piece show a clear 'Ges.Gesch.'-patent-pending-designation (as can be seen on the pictures). A similar example is also figured in the Heering-Hüsken lapel-pin-catalogue wherein it is given the unique reference-number: 5613XA. Simply an attractive DRK (ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz' or German Red Cross) so-called: 'Helferin'-badge that is accordingly priced!

WH (Kriegsmarine) neatly machine-embroidered, white-coloured so-called: career- ie. specialist-armbadge (ie. 'Tätigkeits-Abzeichen') as was intended for usage by a: 'Küstenartillerie'-staff-member

This is neat WH (Kriegsmarine) machine-embroidered, so-called: career- ie. specialist-armbadge (ie. 'Tätigkeits-Abzeichen') as was executed on white-coloured linnen as was specifically intended for usage by a: 'Küstenartillerie'-staff-member and that comes in an overall nice- (ie. I deem probably issued- albeit never used- nor tunic-attached-), condition. The badge - which was to be mounted on the upper-arm-regions of the various white-coloured, naval 'Küstenartillerie'-tunics - depicts a detailed so-called: 'winged grenade'-device (as can be seen on the pictures). The badge is executed in bright-red-coloured 'linnen' on a beige-white-coloured and/or typical, linnen-based background. The piece just shows some minimal age ie. staining caused by decades of storage only. Simply a neat example that is with certainty accordingly priced!

Early- (ie. mid-war-) period, WH (Heeres) cap-eagle & cocarde-set (ie. 'Schiffchen-Adler u. Kokarde für Mannschaften u. Uffz.') being a 'virtually mint- ie. unissued' set as executed in bluish-grey-coloured linnen on a field-grey-coloured background

This is neat example of an early- (ie. mid-war-) period, WH (Heeres) cap-eagle- and cocarde-set (ie. 'Schiffchen-Adler u. Kokarde für Mannschaften u. Unteroffiziere des Heeres') being a 'virtually mint- ie. unissued' set as was executed in bluish-grey-coloured linnen on a field-grey-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 Heeres side-cap ie. 'Schiffchen'. Simply a nice occasion to acquire a neat replacement side-cap-eagle/cocarde-set for a competitive price!

Moderately used WH (Heeres) officers'-type, hand-embroidered breast-eagle (ie. 'Brustadler für Offiziere') as was executed in bright-silverish-coloured braid as was intended for usage on the various officers'-pattern tunics

This is an attractive - and with certainty used ie. once tunic-attached! - example of a WH (Heeres) officers'-type, hand-embroidered- (and quite detailed!) army-type breast-eagle (ie. 'Brustadler für Offiziere') being executed in bright-silverish-coloured braid on a darker-green-coloured- and/or 'smooth'-woolen-based background and that comes in an overall very nice- and/or carefully tunic-removed, condition. This example - having a length ie. 'wingspan' of approximately 10,5 cms. - is nicely hand-embroidered using (minimally corroded) silverish-coloured 'braid' on a darker-green-coloured (and/or woolen-based-) background and has some 'highlighted areas' as executed in light-green-coloured thread (as can be seen on the pictures). The eagle - which is void of a makers'-designation as more often and that does show clear usage and wear as can be noticed on the pictures - was clearly once-tunic-attached: it shows a greenish-coloured- and/or paper-based 'backing' attached (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a neat example of a WH (Heeres) officers'-type breast-eagle that is accordingly priced!

HJ/BDM (ie. 'Hitlerjugend'/'Bund Deutscher Mädel') trade- or specialist armbadge as executed in neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern as was intended for usage by a: 'Feldscher' (or: medical orderly) still retaining its period 'RzM'-etiket

This is an attractive example of a: HJ/BDM (ie. 'Hitlerjugend'/'Bund Deutscher Mädel') so-called: trade- or specialist-armbadge (ie. 'HJ/BDM-Tätigkeits-Abzeichen') as executed in neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern as was specifically intended for usage by a: 'Feldscher' (or: medical orderly) that still retains its period-applied 'RzM'-etiket and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. 'virtually mint'- and/or never tunic- ie. shirt-attached-), condition. The neat badge - sized: 6,5 x 5,5 cms. - comes as 'straightly cut from the role' and was never folded nor confectioned. It can, however, easily be mounted onto a tunic or shirt if wished so. The piece comes with its period-applied 'RzM'-etiket in place and comes 'as straightly cut-off the role' (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a nice occasion to acquire a neat - and fairly unusally encountered! - HJ/BDM cloth-based speciality-patch (ie. 'HJ/BDM-Tätigkeits-Abzeichen') that will be impossibly to be upgraded!

Neat - and 22 mm. sized! - miniature lapel-pin (ie. 'Halbminiatur') depicting a: 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Schwarz' (or: black-class wound-badge) being a maker- (ie. 'L/21'-) marked example as executed in black-coloured metal

This is an attractive - and 22 mm. sized! - miniature lapel-pin (ie. 'Halbminiatur') depicting a: 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Schwarz' (or: black-class wound-badge) being a neatly maker- (ie. 'L/21'-) marked example as executed in black-coloured- (and I deem 'Buntmetall'-based) metal and that comes mounted onto its original, long-sized pin and that comes in an overall very nice- (I deem only minimally used- ie. worn-), condition. The piece is a truly detailed example that retains a very nice and just minimally tarnished age-patina: most of its original black-toned finish is present and/or nicely preserved: the piece has just a tiny bit tarnished over the years but is totally void of any damage. Although its truly small size it shows great pronounced detail and is in fact rarer to encounter than its regular sized counterparts (the photos do not do justice to this piece: in hands it is much nicer and/or detailed). Simply an attractive - and scarcely found! -miniature 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Schwarz'-lapel-pin as was produced by the desirable maker- (ie. 'Hersteller') named: 'Förster & Barth' based in the town of Pforzheim (ie. 'Hersteller' 10) and that is with certainty accordingly priced!

Attractive, WH (Heeres o. Waffen-SS) 'Krim'-campaign-shield that comes mounted onto its original, field-grey-coloured 'backing' and that comes in an issued-, moderately worn and/or carefully tunic-removed-, condition

This is attractive example of a (presumably) non-maker-marked, (Heeres o. Waffen-SS) 'Krim'-campaign-shield that comes mounted onto its original, field-grey-coloured- and/or typical woolen-based 'backing' (that is somewhat period-trimmed) and that comes in a clearly issued-, moderately worn- and/or carefully tunic-removed-, condition. The shield comes naturally complete with its metal-based 'back-plate' and has all its four prongs in place: moreover, does it still retain most its black-coloured- and/or paper- ie. linnen-based backing in place (that shows some wear and age as can be seen on the pictures). The shield - which is minimally converse-shaped as more often seen - truly retains most of its original, bright-golden-coloured- and somewhat 'shiny' finish ie. golden-bronze-like appearance in place and was never cleaned nor polished: it does show some minimal (rust)staining caused by minimal wear and/or decades of storage only. Simply an attractive - and desirable! - 'Heeres ie. Waffen-SS'-pattern example that was surely issued and worn. I deem that this truly worn example is priced accordingly!

This is an attractive example of a: HJ/BDM (ie. 'Hitlerjugend'/'Bund Deutscher Mädel') so-called: trade- or specialist-armbadge (ie.

Attractive example of a Spanish-issued, campaign-medal of the Spanish Blue Division in Russia called: 'Medalla Conmemorativa Division Azul - Medalla de Tropa 1941' that comes mounted on its (typically Spanish) mounted ribbon as issued and/or worn

The neat and/or multi-coloured Spanish-produced campaign-medal retains all of its somewhat darkened, silver-toned finish and retains a very detailed and/or pronounced appearance: it is just a bit dirty and/or tarnished simply caused by decades of storage and/or mimimal wear. The front of the medal shows an (enamelled) iron-cross with swastika as to be expected. The back shows some Russian scenery and the text and/or date: 'Rusia 1941'. The medal - which was I deem clearly issued ie. worn - comes mounted onto its original piece of confectioned and/or folded ribbon (which measures in total 10 cms. and that comes mounted on its golden-toned coloured and/or typical Spanish-issued so-called: mounting 'Spange' ie. bar (as can be seen on the pictures). This is the (one-pieced) version made-out of silvered- and copper- (ie. brass-) based metal as was specifically intended for usage by enlisted-men and/or NCOs (the officers-version was more luxuriously styled and came as a three-pieced version). These medals were produced (since 1943) by the Spanish-based company named: 'Díez y Compañía SA' based in the town of Madrid. Simply a nice opportunity to aquire an attracttive example of the Spanish-issued commemorative- (ie. campaign-)medal as was intended for usage by the troops of the 'Blue-Division'!

Superb - and fairly scarcely encountered! - 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'- (ie. WWII-period-) pocket-watch ('Dienstuhr') of the make: 'Arsa', having a black-coloured dial-plate and/or engraved back-plate that reads: 'D 13054 H'

This is a truly attractive - and/or fairly scarcely encountered! - example of a 'standard-issue'-pattern, 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'- (ie. WWII-period-) pocket-watch (or: 'Dienstuhr') of the make: 'Arsa' having a black-coloured dial-plate and/or engraved back-plate that reads: 'D 13054 H' and that comes in an overall very nice- albeit non-running, condition. These pocket-watches - having a standard 15- or 17-jewel movement - were distributed at a very small scale to the various soldiers (ie. NCOs and/or officers-) of the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' and were properly entered in both: 'Wehrpass' and/or 'Soldbuch'. They had to be engraved with a 'DH' numbering (which abbreviation stands for: 'Deutsches Heer'). As stated above, has the piece on offer here a fully undamaged black-coloured dial having a subsidiary 'seconds'-dial at the 6 o'clock position. The piece - which comes with its period chain as used - has a very attractive (and virtually undamaged) casing (which is executed in nickle-silver-based metal): the watch just shows some minimal wear and/or age. As stated above does the piece not run properly and should be serviced. Nevertheless, a very nice and truly scarcely seen WH-equipment-piece: I deem that I have priced this attractive equiment-piece accordingly!

Superb, 'BeVo'-type armshield entitled: 'España' (being a 'virtually mint- ie. unissued' example as was intended for a volunteer who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. within the famous 'Blue Division' ie. 'Blauer Division')

This particular armshield - showing a bright-red- and/or: golden-yellow-coloured shield with above the (Spanish language) text: 'España' (ie. Spain) - is neatly woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique and comes as being straightly 'cut-off from the roll': it was simply never used nor tunic-attached and can easily be graded 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'. These - original - 'official' and German-produced arm-shields (ie. 'Ärmelschilder') as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo') can be easily considered 'rare' and are hardly ever offered for sale. I deem that I have priced this (truly 'virtually mint-/unissued'- and rarely seen!) example accordingly!

Superb - and fully matching! - pair of Waffen-SS, NCO-type shoulderstraps as piped in the bright-red-coloured branchcolour as was intended for usage by an NCO and/or 'Führer-Anwärter' who served within the: 'Waffen-SS (Sturm)Artillerie-Truppen'

Both shoulderstraps have the typical Waffen-SS-pattern- and/or: smaller-shaped tongues as only observed on genuine SS-pattern straps and have the neat bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour and/or 'silk-like'-type branchcolour ie. piping attached: the set is fully 'text-book' in all facets and is truly hard to be upgraded: it is just minimally used. The shoulderstraps - which are both 11 cms. sized in length as more often encountered - show the (typical) 'Waffen-SS'-styled-, field-grey-coloured- and/or: woolen-based 'underlays' (see pictures). The pair shows some minimal age and/or staining, simply caused by minimal wear and/or age. The straps have the neat 'standard'-type- and/or bluish-grey-coloured- (ie. sub-dued-) type NCO-braid attached, denoting the NCOs'-rank of: 'SS-Scharführer' (ie. sergeant). Moreover, does the pair show two dual-stripes (ie. 'Laschen') of (almost identically executed- and/or also somewhat bluish-coloured-) NCO-braid, period-attached, denoting that the bearer was also an officers'-candidate (ie: 'Offiziers- o. SS-Führer-Anwärter'). These 'Laschen' are firmly attached to the straps - as can be seen on the pictures). In any case is this a fully garuanteed, original Waffen-SS shoulderstrap-set, in only moderately used ie. worn condition and that is - I deem - consequently priced. The pair shows almost no wear nor damage and is as stated only slightly used ie. worn. It should be noted that these original, period Waffen-SS shoulderstrap-pairs can easily be graded 'scarce': even more so, when they are piped in the not that easily encountered, bright-red-coloured- (ie. 'Waffen-SS (Sturm)Artillerie-Truppen'-related-) branchcolour! Great to complete a so-called: 'Waffen-SS Sturmgeschütze' 'wrap-around'-tunic!

Attractive, 4-pieced-, WWI- (ie. TR-) period, medal-bar (ie. 'Ordenspange'), resp. depicting an: 'EK II. Kl.', a: 'Baden Verdienstmedaille', a: 'FKK' and a: 'Pol.DA 1. St.' (that comes with 2 accompanying 'Band-/Feldspangen'!)

This is a truly attractive 4-pieced-, WWI- (ie. TR- and/or: Polizei-related-) period-, medal-bar (ie. 'Spange'), respectively depicting a: WWI-period: 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' (or: iron cross second-class), a: 'Baden Verdienstmedaille' (or: Baden Merit Medal), a: 'Frontkämpferkreuz 1914-18' (ie.: 'Kriegsteilnehmerkreuz 1914-18 mit Schwerter') and a golden-class- and/or WWII-period: 'Polizei-Dienstauszeichnung 1. Stufe' (or: police loyal-service medal first class as was awarded for 25 years of loyal-service) that comes with two accompanying 'Band-/Feldspangen' as issued and/or carefully kept for decades, all four (ie. six!) pieces coming in an overall very nice (albeit minimally used- ie. worn-), condition. The 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' is a nicely preserved example that retains a (fully present- ie. undamaged-) black-coloured core. The silver-based frame is just a bit tarnished and does show a bluish-like age-patina (as is more often encountered). The 'Baden Verdienstmedaille' is a neat zinc- (ie. Feinzink-) based example that has lost some of its period-finish (as more often). The 'Frontkämpferkreuz' (ie.: 'Kriegsteilnehmerkreuz mit Schwerter') is a nicely preserved- (and/or: '39 - RV - Pforzheim'-marked-) example that is executed in (reddish-) bronze-coloured-, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal. It retains most of its somewhat darkened-, bronze-toned finish (see pictures). The 'Polizei-Dienstauszeichnung 1. Stufe' (or: police loyal-service medal first class as was awarded for 25 years of loyal-service) is a very nicely preserved example that truly retains gorgeous details: it still shows most of its 'off-factory' polished-sides (ie. 'hochpolierte Kanten'). The medal is a tiny bit tarnished but retains a great age-patina overall (it has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished). It comes naturally mounted on its darker-blue (ie. 'kornblumenblauer'-) coloured ribbon that shows a neatly interwoven- (and/or: golden-yellow-coloured-) police-eagle-device as to be expected. All four awards have a nicely preserved age-patina and are just a tiny bit dirty: they were - I deem - never cleaned nor polished ( as can be seen on the pictures). All four medals come mounted onto a metal-based 'bar' (that was specifically produced to hold these four medals): all four can be detached from the bar (as can be seen on the pictures). The 'Spange' is nicely backed with a piece of darker-green-coloured wool and shows a (regular-type-) pin-/catch- set-up (which if of course fully functional). It came (as stated above) with two accompanying 'Feld- o. Bandspangen' (of which one is of the 'regular'-model whereas the other is intended for a 'button-hole'). Both pieces show a neat (golden-toned) police-eagle-device and are of course fully functional. The entire 'Spange'-set originates from a private household and was never before in collectors'-hands. Simply a very attractive example of a four- (ie. six-) pieced WWI- ie. 'Polizei'-related 'Ordenspange'-set that will be hard to be upgraded!

This is an attractive - and actually rarely seen! - four-pieced medal-bar (ie. 'Ordenspange') respectively depicting a WWI-period: 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' (or: iron cross second class), a neatly multi-coloured enamelled so-called: Austro-Hungarian Empire, Red Cross Silver Merit medal 1864-1914, a: 'Frontkämpferkreuz 1914-18 mit Schwerter' (ie.: 'Kriegsteilnehmerkreuz 1914-18 mit Schwerter') and a bright-golden-toned: 'Polizei-Dienstauszeichnung 1. Stufe' (or police loyal-service medal first class as was awarded for 25 years of loyal service within the various police-services) all four pieces coming in an overall very nice- (albeit minimally used- ie. worn-), condition. All four awards are truly neatly silver- ie. golden-bronze- (ie. bright-golden-) coloured and 'fairly frosted' examples that are al lfour just minimally tarnished by age and/or moderate usage and wear (as can be seen on the pictures) but are void of any damage or alike. The - fairly rarely seen! - Austrian-Hungarian, Red Cross Silver Merit medal 1864-1914 shows the Latin text: 'Patriae ac Hvmaniti' on its front and is a beautifully preserved example that is totally void of any enamel damage: the inner-shield and green-coloured oak-leaves show a fully preserved enamel surface wheres the (silver-based) medal itself is just a bit tarnished by age (as can be seen on the pictures). All four pieces come naturally mounted on their period ribbons and have a nicely preserved age-patina and are just a tiny bit dirty: they were never cleaned nor polished (see pictures). The entire 'Spange' is nicely 'backed' with a piece of greyish-blue-coloured wool and shows a (regular-type- and functional) pin- ie. catch-set-up (as can be seen on the pictures). The 'Ordenspange' shows a neatly interwoven (and as more often seperately attached) 'Polizei'-eagle-device on its blue-coloured ribbon (done in golden-yellow-coloured linnen as to be expected). The 'Frontkämpferkreuz 1914-18' is a maker- (ie. 'R.V.S.-Pforzheim'-) marked example. Simply an attractive example of a four-pieced, WWI- ie. TR-'Polizei'-related 'Ordenspange' that comes in an uncommonly found combination and that will be truly hard to be upgraded!

This is a truly attractive - and I deem only minimally used- and/or worn - example of a four-pieced WH (Heeres o. Kriegsmarine) medal-bar (ie. 'Ordenspange') showing respectively a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse mit Schwertern' (or: war-merits'-cross second class with swords), two so-called: 'WH-Dienstauszeichnungen für 4 u. 12 Jahre Treue Dienste' (or: loyal-service medal for four ie. twelve years of loyal service) both having their period-attached eagle-devices attached and a: 'Deutsche Olympia-Erinnerungsmedaille 1936' (or: Berlin Olympic Games commemorative medal) and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. only moderately used- ie. worn-, condition. All four awards are just somewhat tarnished by age but are truly nicely preserved (as can be seen on the pictures): they are void of any damage or alike. The 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse mit Schwertern' (or: war-merits'-cross second class with swords) is a typical 'Buntmetall'-based example. Its bright golden-toned, bronze-like finish and pronounced detail are still very nice and bright: the piece truly retains almost all of its original (somewhat 'shiny') finish and was never polished nor cleaned. Both loyal-service medals are truly very nicely preserved examples that seem to have never been cleaned nor polished: both come in an equally tarnished- ie. dusty condition and also come mounted on their period-attached ribbons. Both 'DA' have a neat frosted appearance and show a mininally darkened- ie. truly 'bright and frosted' age-patina (as can seen on the pictures): something that is also valid for both eagle-devices. The 'Deutsche Olympia-Erinnerungsmedaille 1936' (or: Berlin Olympic Games commemorative medal) is an attractive (and detailed- and pronounced!) piece that retains most of its its period-applied, silver-coloured finish: it also retains some of its: 'hochpolierte Kanten' (or polished sides) but is a tiny bit stained (it has never been cleaned nor polished). It comes mounted on its reddish-orange-coloured ribbon. 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 entire 'Spange' is nicely 'backed' with a piece of black-coloured wool and comes mounted on its (regular-type-) pin-/catch- set-up (which is of course fully functional). The 'Spange' originates from a private household and was never before in collectors'-hands. Simply a very attractive example of a four-pieced 'Ordenspange' that will hard to be upgraded!

Stunning - and actually very rarely encountered! - copper-toned ID-disc (ie. 'Dienstmarke') entitled: 'Staatliche Kriminalpolizei' showing a pronounced eagle-device and bearing the unique, engraved serial- ie. bearers'-number that reads: '5692'

This is a truly superb - and actually very rarely encountered! - copper-toned- and I deem 'Buntmetall'-based ID-disc (ie. 'Dienstmarke') entitled: 'Staatliche Kriminalpolizei' showing a pronounced eagle-device and bearing the unique, engraved serial- ie. bearers'-number that reads: '5692' and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit clearly worn- ie. moderately used-), condition. The piece on offer here is naturally a 100% genuine, period item that was recently found at a private-household in Germany. The disc has a very nice- and minimally tarnished (ie. somewhat stained) age-patina: it was never cleaned nor polished and is still a tiny bit dirty ie. stained: of course, does the piece retain great, pronounced detail as to be expected (as can be seen on the pictures). I deem that I have priced this rare and desirable item accordingly: I have seen these original police (ie. 'Polizei') 'Dienstmarken' sell for much more than my asking-price!

Attractive, WHW- (ie. 'Winterhilfswerke'-) related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie') or: 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen des Standschützenverbandes Tirol-Vorarlberg' depicting the text: 'W.H.W. Opferschiessen 1942/43'

This is a neatly enamelled - and actually not that easily encountered! - circular-shaped- and medium-sized so-called: WHW- (ie. 'Winterhilfswerke'-) related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie') or: 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen des Standschützenverbandes Tirol-Vorarlberg' depicting the text: 'W.H.W. Opferschiessen 1942/43' is a typical example that was issued by the: 'Standschützenverband Tirol-Vorarlberg' and that comes in a minimally worn albeit fully undamaged and/or truly nicely preserved, condition. The badge - which shows a clear makers'-designation on its back that reads: 'K. Pichl - Innsbruck' comes naturally mounted on its (fully functional- and/or totally unaltered-) pin- ie. pin-catch set-up (as can be seen on the pictures). It retains a fully undamaged, golden-bronze-toned finish and has an undamaged, multi-coloured- and/or nicely enamelled surface (as can be seen on the pictures). These attractive day-badges were awarded (in similar form and/or model) from 1940 onwards and are actually not that commonly encountered. This attractive - and totally undamaged! - example has an approximate diameter of 3,5 cms. and originates from a German private-household: it was never before in collectors'-hands. I deem that I priced this attractive and/or nicely preserved, fairly 'high-quality-produced' example of a: 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen des Standschützenverbandes Tirol-Vorarlberg' commemorating a shooting-contest named the: 'W.H.W. Opferschiessen 1942/43', accordingly!

This is a truly attractive - and fully matching! - medal-set: 'Winterschlacht im Osten 1941-42' (or: Eastern Front medal) being a neatly maker- (ie. '5'-) marked specimen that comes packed in its original pouch of issue as was produced by the: 'Hermann Wernstein'-company as was based in the town of Jena-Löbstadt as recently found and that comes in an overall very nice (ie. issued- but I deem hardly- ie. never worn- ie. 'virtually mint'-), condition. The medal came together with its original, non-confectioned- (and approx. 19 cms. long-sized-) ribbon and came packed in its neat ('Zellstoff'-based-) and/or: reddish-brown-coloured, carton pouch. The medal - which is a nicely preserved zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based specimen - was issued but never (or hardly) used nor even 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 pouch comes in a nice and complete condition: it is fully functional and shows the printed makers'-mark of the 'Hermann Wernstein'-company based in the town of Jena-Löbstadt (as is printed on its back as stated above). Simply a neat and nicely preserved 'Winterschlacht im Osten'-set that is accordingly priced!

Superb, 4-pieced medal-bar (ie. 'Ordenspange') ) being of the desirable 'detachable-pattern' showing resp. an: 'EKII. Kl.', a medal: 'Winterschlacht im Osten 1941-42' and two 'Anschluss'-medals: '1. März u. 1. Oktober 1938'

This is a truly attractive - and I deem only minimally used- and/or worn - example of a four-pieced medal-bar (ie.

März 1938' and a: WH Czech occupation (ie. 'Anschluss'-) medal: '1 October 1938', all four awards coming in an overall very nice- (and I deem hardly used- nor 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 retains, moreover, a fair bit of its so-called: 'hochpolierte Kanten' (or: polished sides) and has a minimally tarnished ie. stained 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 Ost-medal - which is a I deem a very nicely preserved 'Buntmetall'-based specimen - has 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 very nice and/or crisp. The piece shows some minimal age and/or staining but was never cleaned nor polished. The Austrian 'Anschluss'-medal is a very attractive example having great pronounced detail: truly most (ie. all!) of its (bright-) silver-toned finish is very nicely preserved whereas the medal has an attractive tarnish ie. age-patina without showing any defaults. The Czech 'Anschluss'-medal is an equally attractive example having great pronounced detail: truly most ie. all of its (bright-) golden-toned finish (and so-called: 'Brenn-lacquered' surface!) is still perfectly preserved whereas the medal has an attractive tarnish ie. age-patina without showing any defaults. The 'Spange' just shows some minimal staining and/or dust as was acquired over the years: the ribbons show some equal minor usage and/or staining. The 'Spange' has truly very nice detail and comes mounted on a 'backplate' that has been backed with a piece of field-grey-coloured wool: it is of the desirable 'detachable pattern' and shows a (regular-type-) pin-/catch- set-up (which if of course fully functional as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very attractive and desirable example of a detachable, four-pieced 'Ordenspange' that can be mounted on almost any TR-period tunic!

The attractive - and I deem early-period - lapel-pin (ie.

The grouping was always together and was clearly used as such: the grouping originates from a private-household in Germany where it was recently found as such: it was never before in collectors'-hands. The attractive cuff-title (ie. 'Ärmelstreifen') comes in a truly worn- and/or once-tunic-attached- and still 'sewn-together' condition: it measures (folded) approximately 36 cms. and was clearly once worn and/or carefully tunic-removed (as can be noticed on the pictures). Both ends are still period 'sewn-together' and show some normal fraying as is more often encountered and the piece still shows some (clearly present!) stitching-remains (as can be seen on the pictures). The armband shows some obvious age, wear and staining and was stored as such for decades. The cuff-title is executed in the (typical) neat (ie. 'smooth-type'-) beige-brownish-coloured, so-called: 'Kamelhaar' (camel hair) as is more often encountered. It should be stated that these 'Afrika'-cuff-titles are not to be regarded as commemorative cuff-titles (such as the 'Afrikakorps' cuff-title) but were regarded as official awards that needed official recognition (and entries in both 'Soldbuch' and/or: 'Wehrpass'). The aluminium-based ID-disc (ie. 'Erkennungsmarke') is bearing the clearly stamped unit-designation that simply reads: 'Ers.Kp.M.G.Btl.8' (and was as such intended for a soldier who served within the replacement- (ie. 'Ersatz'-) company of this 'Infanterie'-related, machine-gunners 'Bataillon', numbered: '8'). It should be noted that this particular unit was truly one of the first units that set foot on African soil (ie. Libyen) in 1941. The disc also shows the soldiers'-bloodgroup-type (ie. 'Type A'). The field-grey-coloured rank-chevron (ie. 'Armwinkel') shows two stripes of the bluish-grey-coloured NCO-braid and was as such intended for usage by an: 'Obergefreiter': it was clearly used and was carefully tunic-removed. The golden-bronze-toned: 'Kraftfahrbewährungs-Abzeichen in Bronze' is also nicely preserved and comes mounted onto its original piece of field-grey-coloured wool. It retains its period, beige-coloured 'backing-paper' and most of its somewhat shiny ie. 'Brennlack'-like surface (as can be seen on the pictures).

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. The armbadge is nicely woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave-technique and is a truly attractive example of this fantastic technique. The badge comes as stated above in a truly used and once tunic-attached condition: some of the stitching-holes are still present and visible and it shows some age, wear and/or staining (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).

These sought-after publications - as published by the 'Heinz Denckler Verlag' based in Berlin - were not 'standard-issued' manuals but had to be privately-acquired by the soldiers ie. NCO's and/or officers. The example on offer here shows an inked name (on the first page) that reads: 'Hilmar Ludwig' (as can be seen on the pictures). It should be noted that these small-sized, instruction-manuals are very collectable and can easily be graded 'scarce'.

Attractive, 'standard-issue'-pattern, WH (Heeres o. Luftwaffe) dagger-knot (ie. 'Troddel') being an example that was executed in silver-coloured 'bullion' and that comes in a very nice- (ie. I deem 'virtually mint'-), condition

This is a truly attractive - and with certainty never dagger-attached ie. 'virtually mint' - example of a 'standard-issue'-pattern, WH (Heeres o. Luftwaffe) dagger-knot (ie. 'Troddel') being an example that was executed in silver-coloured 'bullion' as was specifically intended for usage on the various WH (Heeres o. Luftwaffe) officers'-daggers ('Offiziers-Dolche'). The piece - that still comes 'tied-together' as issued - shows no wear whatsoever: just some minimal staining is visible simply caused by decades of storage only. The piece is of the larger-sized type (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very attractive piece that would look awesome if re-mounted on any officers'-dagger!

Truly used, natural-coloured- and/or genuine leather-based etui as was intended to store a Wehrmacht ID-disc (ie. 'Tragetasche für Erkennungsmarke') and that comes mounted onto its period-attached 'cord' as issued- and worn

This is an attractive - and with certainty used- and worn! - natural-coloured- and/or genuine leather-based etui as was intended to store a Wehrmacht ID-disc (ie. 'Tragetasche für Erkennungsmarke') that comes mounted onto its period-attached 'cord' as issued- and worn. The pouch does show some moderate aging and wear (and is just a tiny bit stained) but is nevertheless still souple and/or fully functional: it originated from a private-household in Germany where it was recently uncovered. The piece still comes with its period (roughly styled) 'carrying-cord' firmly attached. Simply an attractive WH personal-equipment-item that is I deem accordingly priced!

Attractive, WWI-period: 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' (or: iron cross second class) that comes together with its (period) non-confectioned- and/or: nicely folded ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt')

This is an attractive example of a moderately used- and probably worn example of a WWI-period: 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' (or: iron cross second class) and that comes as issued, presumably minimally worn and/or recently found. The detail on this example 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). The cross came together with its (period) non-confectioned- and folded ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt'). The IC truly retains nice details but is void of a makers'-designation: it has a nicely preserved, black-finished (ie. somewhat 'satin-like'- ie. 'shiny-style'-) core and is void of any damage or paint-loss and has been truly nicely preserved. 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 ribbon shows only minimal usage and/or staining. Simply a neat WWI-period, 'EKII. Klasse' that is with certainty accordingly priced!

Detailed, 9-mm.-sized medal-lapel-pin being a clearly maker- (ie. 'L/18'-) marked example depicting respectively: an 'EK I. Klasse' and: 'EK II. Klasse' as was produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller') named: 'B.H. Mayer's Kunstprägeanstalt'

This is an attractive - and for its size very detailed! - example of a 9-mm.-sized medal-lapel-pin being a clearly ie. double(!) maker- (ie. 'L/18'-) marked example depicting respectively the miniatures of: an 'EK I. Klasse' and an: 'EK II. Klasse' as was produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller') named: 'B.H. Mayer's Kunstprägeanstalt'. These attractive lapel-pins were a most appreciated medal-accessory and were intended to be worn on the civil attire. The example on offer here is a somewhat 'luxuriously-styled'-example that is executed in silvered so-called: 'Buntmetall': both ICs have an (almost) fully present black-coloured surface (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a neat example as was produced by a desirable maker and that is with certainty accordingly priced!

Minimally mis-matched pair of WH (Heeres) mid- ie. (later-) war-period (ie. 'M43'-pattern) 'cyphered' NCO-type shoulderstraps as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel der Pz.- o. Panzerjäger-Lehr-Truppen'

The truly attractive shoulderstraps - which have the field-grey-coloured- and/or: typical woolen-based 'upperdecks' as executed in typical field-grey-coloured wool - have the desirable bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) and/or 'silk-like'-type piping attached and measure approximately 10 cms. in length each. They come naturally mounted onto their original tongues and come in an overall very nice- (ie. fully 'text-book'!) condition overall: the straps were only moderately used and do show some minimal age, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The straps - which show a pair of (identical, Gothic-styled, zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based and/or tarnished, silver-coloured) so-called: 'L'-cyphers (ie. 'Ziffern') and a pair of (equally-styled) pips period-attached - come naturally mounted onto their functional tongues and have the neat 'standard'-type, silver-coloured- and/or: 'Heeres'-type NCO-braid, attached: as such they were intended for - and used by! - a: 'Feldwebel der Pz.- o. Panzerjäger-Lehr-Truppen' (or: sergeant and presumably instructor who served within an anti- tank- ie. tank-destroyer unit). The straps are slight different from eachother but were with certainly always together and were worn as such as a pair. It should be noted that these pink-piped, NCO-type-, 'Panzer'-related shoulderstraps are very desirable and can nowadays easily be graded 'scarce': this is one of those shoulderstrap-pairs that every collector is nowaydays searching-for but that is simply not that often offered for sale. I deem that this attractive pair is accordingly priced!

Attractive - and actually very rarely encountered! - NJS- (or: 'Nationale Jeugdstorm') dagger ie. 'Fahrtenmesser' (or in Dutch language: 'stormersmes') being a period-altered example that bears the serial-number: 'A 444'

This is attractive - and actually very rarely encountered! - NJS- (or: 'Nationale Jeugdstorm') dagger ie. 'Fahrtenmesser' (or in Dutch language: 'stormersmes') being a period-altered example that comes in a clearly used- ie. somewhat sharpened, condition. The 'NJS' was the the Dutch youth-movement that existed from 1937 to 1945 and that was an NSB-related organisation and Dutch equivalent of the German HJ (ie. 'Hitlerjugend'). The dagger on offer - which is quite small-sized and that measures from top to bottom only 21,5 cms. as to be expected - is regrettably period-altered and misses its enamelled NJS-logo (ie. gull-symbol) in its grips (which has very unusually been repaced by a firmly inserted WWII-period, Dutch coin as can be seen on the pictures). The piece comes with its (undamaged) ivory-white-coloured grips and metal-based- and black-coloured metal scabbard (that retains its functional leather closing-device). The piece was - as always - produced by the famous maker (ie. 'Hersteller') 'Eickhorn' based in the town of Solingen (and also shows the engraved 'Eickhorn'-logo as to be expected). The - as stated above roughly sharpened - blade shows the to be expected motto that reads: 'Moed, Eer en Trouw' (being the Dutch language-translation of: 'Courage, Honor and Loyalty'). Moreover, does it show a unique (low!) serial-number that reads: 'A 444' (as can be seen on the pictures). It should be noted that truly not many if these interesting NJS-daggers survived and I deem that this example can still be professionally restored if wished so. I deem that this example is actually reasonably priced: a fully untouched and complete example would easily fetch the double of my asking-price!

'Standard'-pattern- ie. WH-issue, reddish-brown-coloured- and/or 'Bakelite'-based container holding 'Losantin' tablets being a neatly marked example showing a logo and/or date: '42' (ie. '43')

This is a neat, small-sized personal equipment-item that was obligatory carried by all German troops in their gasmask-containers: a very nice example of the 'standard'-pattern- (ie. WH-issued) reddish-brown-coloured and/or 'Bakelite'-based 'container' holding a stack of so-called: 'Losantin'-tablets as intended for gas-decontamination that is neatly marked with a clear makers'-logo and that is dated: '1942' (ie. '1943') and that comes in an overall very nice- (and/or unopened- ie. 'virtually mint' and unopened-), condition. The piece still retains its paper-based etikets (which do show some minimal usage, staining and/or wear-marks) and is also closed by means of a piece of yellowish-coloured- and/or linnen-based tape (something that is not that often the case). These neat personal-equipment-items are generally speaking not that difficult to find but are very hard to come by in a 'virtually mint' condition (as is the example on offer here). Simply a nice occasion to acquire a neat personal-equipment item that will be hard to be upgraded!

Fully matching pair of pink-piped, WH (Heeres) 'Panzer' NCO-type shoulderstraps (as was specifically used on the black-coloured 'wrap-around'-tunics) as was intended for usage by an: 'Unteroffizier eines Panzer-Regiments'

This is a truly very attractive - fully matching and nowadays actually rarely offered for sale! - pair of WH (Heeres) - I deem - quite early-war-period, NCO-type shoulderstraps (as was specifically produced for - and used on - the black-coloured, 'wrap-around'-tunics) as was intended for usage by an: 'Unteroffizier eines Panzer-Regiments' (or: junior-sergeant and tank-crew-member who served within a 'Panzer'-unit- ie. regiment) and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit moderately used ie. worn-), condition. The neat straps - which have the 'standard'-pattern, black-coloured- and/or: woolen-based 'upperdecks' - measure approximately 10,5 cms. in length each and have the desirable, bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured- and/or: 'silk-like'-type piping attached (as can be seen on the pictures). The neat straps come naturally mounted onto their functional tongues and do both show some minimal wear, usage and/or moderate age (as can be seen on the pictures). This attractive pair was recently found at a German private-household and was never before in collectors'-hands: it was worn by a 'Panzer'-soldier who kept and stored these insignia for decades. Simply a very attractive, original and/or fully matching, early-war-period 'Panzer'-shoulderstrap-pair that can easily be graded 'rare' and that is nowadays almost impossible to encounter!

Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Heeres ie. Waffen-SS) 'Kuban'-campaign-shield that comes mounted onto its original field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'backing' as issued and worn

This is an attractive - and in this most certainly issued, clearly worn and/or tunic-removed condition actually scarcely encountered - WH (Heeres ie. Waffen-SS) so-called: 'Kuban'-campaign-shield that comes mounted onto its original, field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'backing' and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. clearly used and/or most certainly once tunic-attached-) condition. The - highly detailed and/or pronounced! - shield comes naturally complete with its original metal-based 'back-plate' and still retains all four of its original prongs (being attached to the sides of the shield as is more often encountered with original 'Kuban'-campaign-shields as can be seen on the pictures). The piece sill retains a fair bit of its beige-coloured- and/or carton-based 'backing-cover' (as can be seen on the pictures). This example has stunning detail and was clearly issued and worn. The shield truly retains a fair bit of its somewhat 'glossy' appearance (showing some darkened tarnish) and has never been cleaned nor polished: it does show some staining and/dirt as is visible on the pictures). It should, however, be noted that the (original) 'Kuban'-campaign-shields are a bit underestimated in value and rarity. Genuine - and nicely preserved! - examples of the 'Kuban'-shield are actually not that easily encountered. I deem that this attractive and fully untouched example is accordingly priced!
