This is a very attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - fully matching pair of N.S.K.K. (ie. 'National Socialistisches Kraftfahr Korps') EM- (ie. NCO-) pattern 'Kragenspiegel' (or: collar-patches) as was specifically intended for - and clearly used by! - an: 'N.S.K.K.-Scharführer' (or sergeant) who served within the: '3. N.S.K.K.-Motorsturm des Motorstandarte 100' and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit moderately used- ie. carefully tunic- ie. shirt-removed-), condition. The tabs are executed in the typical black-coloured wool and show both their period-attached 'RzM-etiket' (as can be seen on the pictures). The neat set - which was intended to be worn on the tan-coloured N.S.K.K.-shirts and/or -tunics - is neatly 'backed' with light-brown-coloured- and buckram-based material as to be expected. The pieces were clearly used and once tunic-attached and show some minimal age, wear and/or staining. The unit-tab shows the (period-attached- and/or aluminium-based): '3'-, 'M'-, '1' and/or: double '0'-numerals whereas the rank-patch shows a single (also aluminium-based- and regular-sized) single pip, denoting the rank of: 'N.S.K.K.-Scharführer' (ie. sergeant). The pair was carefully tunic- (ie. shirt)removed and still shows some thread- ie. stitching-remains (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very attractive and fully matching N.S.K.K.-related- and fully untouched 'Kragenspiegel-Satz': I am convinced that these neat pieces are not that often offered for sale!
This is an attractive - and actually quite scarcely encountered! - neatly hand-embroidered example of a WH (Heeres o. Luftwaffe) officers'-pattern side-cap-cocarde (ie. 'Mützenkokarde für Offiziers-Schiffchen') that comes in a 'virtually mint- ie. unissued', condition. It should be noted that these neat officers'-pattern side-cap- (ie. 'Schiffchen'-) insignia-pieces are quite difficult to encounter (and come hardly ever for sale). The piece on offer here is neatly executed in multi-coloured 'braid' and shows a (black-coloured- and/or carton-based-) backing (as is more often seen). The piece was never side-cap-attached and shows some minimal dust and tarnish, simply caused by decades of storage only. The quality of the used embroidery is truly stunning: it is quite thick and pronounced in execution and the piece can easily be graded as piece of the 'Extra Qualität'. The piece shows a black-coloured- (and or typical 'braid'-based) 'outer-rim' (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a great replacement-item that is ideally fitted to restore any quality officers'-type side-cap (ie. 'Schiffchen für Offiziere')!
This is an attractive - and acually scarcely found! - fully matching and typical felt-woolen-based- and/or light-blue-piped, EM- (ie. NCO-) pattern RAD- (ie. 'Reichsarbeitsdienst'- ie. 'Werkscharen'-related) shoulderstrap-pair as was specifically intended for a: 'Betriebswerkschar-Mitglied des 109. Werschars' and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used- and/or I deem clearly tunic-removed-), condition. Both neatly 'cyphered' straps show the typical (light-blue- ie. 'hellblauer'- coloured- and/or: rayon-based) piping denoting: 'Ortswaltung u. Betriebs'-level and do both show (matching pairs of aluminium-based) so-called: cogwheel- and swastika-devices and (typical 'Werkschar'-related) '1'-, '0'- and/or: '9'-numerals period-attached (as can be seen on the pictures). Both straps measure approximately 11,2 cms. in length and come without tongues: they were clearly intended and used as a pair of the 'sew-in'-pattern. The pair originates from a small collection of scarcely seen RAD-related cloth-insignia I recently acquired. I deem that this interesting - and with certainty scarcely found! - 'Werkscharen'-related shoulderstrap-pair is accordingly priced!
This is a very attractive example of a detailed-, golden-bronze-toned and/or (I deem) 'Cupal'-based plaque ie. shield as was intended for usage on on (the higher-class!): WH (Heeres) 'Panzer-Schützenschnure' (or: shooting- ie. marksmanship-lanyards) and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly used and/or moderately worn-), condition. The shield - which is a non-maker-marked specimen - comes in an overall fine condition and shows no damage whatsoever: just some aging and/or slight staining is present and/or visible. The detail on the golden-bronze-toned piece is really very pronounced and/or detailed: it has a nice age-patina and has acquired some tarnish over the years (it was, however, never cleaned nor polished). The badge still retains all its four original (fully functional- and never bent) prongs as issued (and can as such be easily mounted onto a marksmanship-lanyard if needed). Simply a very nice and decorative piece: ideal to restore any higher-class, 'Heeres-Panzer'-shooting- ie. marksmanship-lanyard!
The attractive - and fairly luxuriously styled! - silver-class wound-badge (or: 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Silber') is executed in neat and/or fairly shiny, so-called: 'Buntmetall' and shows only moderate usage and/or wear (as can be seen on the pictures). It comes naturally mounted onto its fully functional (tin-shaped-) pin (which is of course fully functional) and comes mounted on its functional (and totally unaltered- nor repaired) catch. The badge is most certainly never cleaned and retains a fair bit of its silver-toned finish and just shows some obvious tarnish and wear (it was most certainly never cleaned nor polished). The piece is - as stated above - a nicely maker- (ie. 'L/21'-) marked example that is unmistaken a quality-procuded piece that was produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller') named: 'Förster & Barth' based in the town of Pforzheim. Simply an attractive and with certainty scarcely encountered and desirable, silver-class WB that is accordingly priced!
This is an attractive RAD- (ie. 'Reichsarbeitsdienst'-) ie. 'Werkscharen'-related - and I deem - enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCO-) pattern, commemorative cuff-title (ie. 'Dienstärmelstreifen für Mannschaften u. Unteroffiziere') depicting the interwoven (silver-white-coloured) text: 'Werschar' flanked by two swastika-signs and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used- and/or I deem clearly tunic-removed-), condition. The cuff-title is neatly executed in silverish-white-coloured linnen on a typical, black-coloured and felt-woolen-based background. There is, however, an on-going discussion on the exact usage and signifigance of these 'Werkscharen'-related cuff-titles. This example - which is (I deem) just minimally shortened and measures now 39 cms. in length - originates from a small collection of RAD-related cloth-insignia I recently acquired. This example was clearly worn and was somewhat roughly tunic-removed (some minimal stitching-marks and minimal damaged areas are visible) but comes in an overall nice- and untouched, condition. Simply an attractive piece of RAD- ie. 'Werkscharen'-related insignia that is with certainty accordingly priced!
This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - 'HJ'- ('Hitlerjugend') ie. 'BDM'- ('Bund Deutscher Mädel') related, so-called: 'Reichsberufswettkampf-Siegerabzeichen' being a high-quality (ie. 'Buntmetall'-) based award (of the 2nd model) bearing the text: 'Kreissieger 1938' and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately worn- ie. used- however undamaged-), condition. The attractive badge is (as stated above) executed in high-quality, copper-toned metal (ie. 'Buntmetall') and is nicely maker-marked on its back with the makers'-designation: 'G. Brehmer - Markneukirchen' (as can be seen on the pictures). The badge comes in a moderately used- ie. worn condition but is void of any enamel-damage (as can be seen on the pictures). It is just a tiny bit tarnished ie. dusty and/or stained simply caused by normal age and/or decades of storage: it was, however, never cleaned nor polished (as can be seen on the pictures). The badge comes naturally mounted onto its (fully functional- and unaltered-) catch and/or functional pin- (ie. catch) attachment. The badge has a wonderful, untouched appearance and has never been cleaned nor polished. Simply an attractive 'youth-related'-award that is with certainty accordingly priced!
This is a truly attractive - and actually fairly scarcely encountered! - N.S.K.K.- (ie. 'National-Socialistisches Kraftfahr-Korps'-) related armbadge as was woven in bright-red-coloured linnen on a black-coloured (and linnen-based) background as was specifically intended for an: 'N.S.K.K.-Sanitäts-Unterführer o. Mann' ie. 'Feldscher' (or: medical orderly) being an example that was executed in the neat 'BeVo'- weave pattern and that still retains its period-attached 'RzM'-etiket and that comes in an overall nice- (ie. clearly used- ie. carefully tunic-removed-), condition. The nicely woven (and oval-shaped) insignia-piece is only sized: 5,5 x 4,5 cms. and comes as neatly pre-folded and/or trimmed. Simply an attractive - and actually quite scarcely encountered! - N.S.K.K.- (ie. 'National-Socialistisches Kraftfahr-Korps'-) related armbadge (ie. 'Laufbahn- o. Tätigkeitsabzeichen'): only the second such neat badge I ever had on offer!
This is a neat - and actually not that often seen! -detailed- and metal-based, TR-era arm-badge: a nickle-chrome-based, so-called: N.S.B.O. (ie.: 'National-Sozialistischer Betriebszellen-Organisation') sleeve-diamond-device showing a 'hand-and-hammer-device' with swastika (ie. 'Metall-Abzeichen für N.S.B.O.-Ärmelraute') and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. I deem never used- nor even mounted-), condition. The piece retains all three of its (copper-toned) prongs that were simply never used- nor bent: the badge can easily be graded: 'virtually mint- ie. unissued' and orginates from an old collection that was compiled over a 40-year-period. The piece still retains most (ie. all) of its black-painted 'inlayed areas' (as can be seen on the pictures). These sleeve-diamonds (ie. 'Rauten') were worn on the early-pattern brownshirts. I deem that this attractive and truly pronounced N.S.B.O.-related badge is accordingly priced!
This is an attractive - and/or neatly detailed! - example of a machine-embroidered, WH (Kriegsmarine) enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCO-) type breast-eagle as was executed in golden-yellow-coloured- and/or: linnen-based material as was specifically intended for usage on the various darker-blue-coloured KM-tunics and that comes in an overall very nice- (I deem never used- nor tunic-attached- ie. 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'-), condition. This example - having a 'wingspan' of approximately 10,7 cms. and showing some highlighted areas in yellow-coloured thread - is nicely machine-embroidered using golden-yellow-toned linnen on a dark-blue-coloured (and/or: woolen-based) background (as can be seen on the pictures). This example was simply never used and shows some storage-age only (as can be seen on the pictures). The eagle shows a black-coloured- and linnen-based 'backing' as is more often seen. Simply an attractive example that can naturally easily be attached to any 'Kriegsmarine'-tunic or to be simply kept in any eagles'-collection!
