This is a period WH- ie.TR-era, unissued (ie. full!) carton-based, cigarette-package of the make: 'Rosetti - Juno' having a fully preserved: 'Banderolle' attached (that shows the 'Reichsadler'-device with swastika) and that comes in a 'virtually mint, unissued', condition. The box - which is just a tiny bit dusty caused by decades of storage only - is sized: 6,5 x 6 x 1,3 cms. and holds 6 cigarettes as to be expected. These were the cigarettes as used by the various WH soldiers and other military and civil-staff and were a most desirable commodity. Simply a nice, little piece of 'personal-equipment': great to complete the 'personal gear' of any mannequin and/or set-up!
This is an attractive example of a silver-class: 'Polizei-Dienstauszeichnung 2. Stufe' (or : police loyal-service medal second class as was awarded for 18 years of loyal service within the various police-services) and that comes stored in its period (albeit minimally damaged!) etui together with its (scarcely encountered!) period-shortened ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') showing a silver-white-toned- and/or neatly interwoven police-eagle-device and that comes in an overall very nice- (and I deem only minimally used- ie. worn-), condition. The medal truly retains gorgeous details and still shows most of its 'off-factory' polished-sides (ie. 'hochpolierte Kanten'). The medal is just a tiny bit tarnished but retains a great age patina overall (it has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished). The award came together with its original, non-confectioned- and/or shortened (ie. approximately 14,5 cms. long- and/or: 5 cms. wide-sized-) cornflower-blue-coloured ribbon, showing the interwoven silver-white-coloured police-eagle-device (which is a scarce piece in itself). The typical, greenish-coloured (and carton-based) etui comes in an equally nice - albeit issued - condition. It shows a silver-toned (and undamaged) laurel with the number '18' on its top. The etui shows a loosened top but is for the rest undamaged but does show some wear, age and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a nicely preserved - and/or complete! - 18-yrs. police loyal-service-medal-set that is accordingly priced!
This is a period WH- ie.TR-era, unissued (ie. full!) carton-based, cigarette-package of the make: 'Eckstein No. 5' having a fully preserved: 'Banderolle' attached (that shows the 'Reichsadler'-device with swastika) and that comes in a 'virtually mint, unissued', condition. The box - which is just a tiny bit dusty caused by decades of storage only - is sized: 6,5 x 6 x 1,3 cms. and holds 6 cigarettes as to be expected. These were the cigarettes as used by the various WH soldiers and other military and civil-staff and were a most desirable commodity. Simply a nice, little piece of 'personal-equipment': great to complete the 'personal gear' of any mannequin and/or set-up!
The attractive - and unusually square-shaped! - lapel-pin - which has only been moderately used ie. worn - measures approximately 1,6 x 1,6 cms. and has a very nicely preserved age-patina and has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished: it is showing normal wear but is totally void of any (enamel-) damage (as can be seen on the pictures): just some regular wear ie. minimal scratches are noticable. The badge is void of any text and also does not show any makers'- nor 'Ges.Gesch.'-patent-pending-designation: it is, however, showing a clearly present makers-designation that reads: 'HCH Timm - Berlin C19' (as can be seen on the pictures). This example - which has a bright-red- ie. white- and black-coloured- (ie. enamelled) area - comes mounted on its typical, longer-sized pin which is naturally still fully functional and/or present. It should be noted that these square-shaped-versions are quite difficult to encounter and I therefore deem that this attractive- (ie. unusually encountered 'variant'-pattern-) 'N.S.D.A.P.'-membership-pin ie. 'supporters' party-badge is priced according to its nicely preserved and/or fully undamaged condition!
The truly attractive cross - which is a minimally vaulted ie. soemwhat converse-shaped example as is more often encountered - has I deem never been cleaned and retains a very nice (albeit minimally tarnished-) age-patina and/or great pronounced detail. This WWI-period example - which is magnetic as more often seen - comes mounted onto its original (and naturally fully functional-) flute-shaped pin and has an unaltered (and functional) catch (as can be seen on the pictures). The cross - which shows a nicely preserved, 'blackened'- and/or fairly 'satin-like'- ie. somewhat 'matted'-like 'inner-core' - shows some minimal age but is totally void of any damage: it retains a very nice appearance overall. The piece is as stated above void of a makers'-designation (as can be seen on the pictures). It is, morover, just a bit dirty and tarnished simply caused by years of storage and/or moderate wear but retains a great unmessed-with and/or uncleaned, age-patina. Simply an attractive IC-first-class that was recently uncovered at a private household and that was never before part of a collection: I deem that I have priced this attractive example accordingly!
This is an attractive example of a WW1-period, Iron Cross 2nd class (or: 'Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse') that comes period-mounted as a so-called: 'Einzelspange' (or: single-pieced medal-bar) being of the desirable 'detachable'-pattern as issued and/or stored for decades. The detail on this example is truly very nicely preserved: it has never been cleaned nor polished and has an attractive and somewhat 'stained'- (ie. clearly tarnished) age-patina (as can be seen on the pictures). The award - that shows the makers'-designation 'KO' stamped into its ring - comes 'mounted' onto a metal-based 'clasp' that is neatly 'backed' with a piece of darker-blue-coloured wool and that shows a functional pin- ie. pin/catch-set-up as was intended for wearing this example on a 'going-out'- ie. dress-tunic or 'Waffenrock'. Hard to find a more attractive WW1-period Iron Cross 2nd class (or: 'Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse') that comes mounted as a detachable: 'Einzelspange'!
The attractive compass (ie. 'Marschkompass') is still fully functional and retains most of its (fairly glossy!) black-painted colour and is marked with the engraved serial-number and/or makers'-designation as mentioned above. The compass shows as stated only moderate wear and/or age but is naturally still fully functional. This truly 'high-quality' piece was most certainly issued in the early war-years (or before) but was most certainly used throughout the WWII. The piece was moderately used and does show some minimal paint-loss on its top (as can be seen on the pictures). Moreover, does it misses it metal-based mirror (which was presumably broken-off during usage). Nevertheless still a neat example of a 'standard-issue'-pattern WH compass (ie. 'Marschkompass')!
This is an attactive example of a (post) WWI-period: 'Frontkämpferkreuz 1914-18 mit Schwerter' (ie.: 'Kriegsteilnehmerkreuz 1914-18 mit Schwerter') being a maker- (ie. 'HKM'-) marked example that came stored in its luxuriously styled, black-coloured etui and that comes in an overall very nicely preserved- (and I deem never worn-), condition. The attractive (and truly bronze-coloured) medal (ie.: 'Kriegsteilnehmerkreuz 1914-18 mit Schwerter') is a very nicely preserved- (and 'HKM'-marked-) example that is executed in bronze-coloured-, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal. It retains all of its somewhat darkened-, bronze-toned finish (as can be seen on the pictures) and comes together with its period ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') which is stored in the specific 'compartment' in the etui. The bright-red-coloured- and semi-leather-based etui comes also in a wonderful and hardly used condition: it retains a fully preserved off-white- (ie. beige-yellowish-coloured-) and/or felt-like interior in place (which does show some minimal age and/or staining). The lid shows the (obligatory) printed text: 'Treue um Treue' followed by a facsimile signature of Paul von Hindenburg (as can be seen on the pictures). These attractive sets could be presented (or privately purchased) in the late twenties and thirties and are quite collectible and are actually not that often seen. I deem that I have priced this attractive 'Frontkämpferkreuz 1914-18 mit Schwerter'-medal-set accordingly!
This is an attractive example of a first pattern- (and/or semi-enamelled) so-called: RLB- (ie. 'Reichluftschützbund') so-called: 'Zivilabzeichen' (or: civil-attire badge) bearing a clearly present (ie. dual!) makers'-designation (that reads: 'H. Aurich - Dresden') and patent-pending- (ie. 'Ges.Gesch.'-) marking on its back and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit used- ie. worn-), condition. The piece has stunning (and totally undamaged!) darker-blue-coloured enamel and comes mounted onto its original and functional long-sized pin (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished and is just a tiny bit stained ie. tarnished. A similar badge is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken' lapel-pin catalogue, werein it is given the unique reference number: '5909A'. Simply an attractive and desirable 'RLB'-related item: hard to encounter a nicer example for a more interesting price!
The truly attractive - and I deem early- (ie. mid-) war-period badge is as stated nicely maker-marked on its back with the makers'-designation: 'W. Redo' as based in the town of Saarlautern and also bears the usually encountered inscription: 'Eigentum d. Obersten SA-Führung' (as is visible on the back of the sword as more often). The badge - which comes naturally mounted onto its functional- (and unaltered!) pin- (ie. catch-) set-up - only shows some minor wear but was I deem never cleaned nor polished: the original- and/or (fairly dark-coloured- and bronze-toned-) finish is almost fully present and/or neatly preserved: moreover, does it retain most of its period-applied (and glossy) 'Brennlack' (as can be seen on the pictures). The badge is just a tiny bit stained ie. dirty caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage. Simply an attractive and I deem early- ie. mid-war-period example that is accordingly priced!
