This is a neat WH (Luftwaffe-related) personal-equipment item that was specifically used for (pre-war) training-purposes in the field: a neat golden-yellow- and bright-red-coloured WH (Luftwaffe) helmet-strap (ie. 'Helmband 36') being an example that shows a clearly visible ink-stamp that reads: 'I. Gen.Göring 1.Battr.' and that comes in an overall very nice- (and IMO only minimally used- ie. worn-), condition. The piece - which retains bright- and vivid colours and that still retains all its three metal-based clips and functional closing-system - shows some (truly minimal) age and/or staining but is still fully functional. Simply a neat WH personal-equipment item that belonged to an air-force-member who belonged to the (pre-war-period) 'Regiment General Göring'!
This is a fully matching pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type, hand-embroidered collar-tabs (ie. 'Kragenspiegel') as was piped in the bright-pink-coloured branchcolour as was intended for usage by an: 'Offizier eines Panzer o. Panzerjäger-Abteilungs' (or: officer who served within an anti-tank- ie. tank-destroyer unit ie. regiment) and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. IMO minimally used- and/or carefully tunic-removed-), condition. The pair - which is nicely 'backed' with beige-coloured buckram-based material as more often seen (as can be seen on the pictures) - shows extraordinary hand-embroidery and is fully void of any corrosion or alike. Simply a very attractive and clearly worn collar-tab-pair that was worn by an: 'Offizier eines Panzer o. Panzerjäger-Abteilungs'!
The neat badge (ie. 'tinnie' or: 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen') is executed in greyish-silver-toned-, zinc-based metal (ie. Feinzink) and depicts an 'Edelweiss'-flower and SA-logo surrounded by the text: 'Herbstparade 1933 - Brigade M.O.' and was as such intended for an SA- (ie. 'Sturmabteilungen'-) related gathering or rally. The circular-shaped badge (having an approximate diameter of 5 cms. - shows some normal wear and/or moderate age - comes naturally mounted on its functional pin-/catch set-up and has IMO never been cleaned nor polished: it shows some minimal staining (as can be seen on the pictures) but is still very detailed and/or pronounced. The 'tinnie' retains most of its (fairly dull- ie. tarnished-) silver-coloured finish. Simply a great occasion to acquire an attractive SA-related- (and with certainty scarcely encountered!) so-called: 'Tagungs- o. Veranstaltungsabzeichen' for an interesting price!
This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - neatly enamelled, so-called: DRK (ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz' or: German Red Cross) nurses'-badge entitled: 'Schwesternschaft', being a desirable oval-shaped-version showing an engraved bearers'-number: (that reads: '38'), town- (ie. hospital-name): ('Karlsbad') and/or and makers'-mark: 'A. Stübbe - Berlin' and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit worn- and/or mininally damaged-), condition. The piece was (IMO) clearly worn but is totally void of any (real) enamel-damage: it just shows some regular wear and does show some minor scratches ie. wear-marks especially in the black-coloured area (as can be seen on the pictures). The lapel-pin is nicely maker-marked: 'Ges.Gesch. - A. Stübbe - Berlin' and also is engraved with a (unique) bearers'-number that reads: '138'. The badge most certainly belonged to a nurse that worked in a hospital or clinic based in Karlsbad (something that is obvious due to the encountered engraving). The badge comes naturally mounted on its functional pin and/or catch (set-up). A similar badge is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken' lapel-pin-catalogue, were it is given the unique reference-number: 5613XG. The badge on offer here was never cleaned and shows an attractive (darker- ie. tarnished, golden-coloured-) patina on its back. This is the desirable oval-shaped version (having an approximate width of 4,7 cms.). Simply an attractive and honest example of this desirable DRK 'Schwesternschaft' lapel-pin that is not that often offered for sale!
This is a very attractive - and truly rarely encountered! - Waffen-SS, enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCO-) pattern collar-tab set ('Kragenspiegelsatz') comprising of a runic tab and rarely seen rank-tab both examples as executed in so-called: 'BeVo'-weave pattern, that both come in an overall very nice- (ie. IMO issued-, worn- and/or carefully tunic-removed-), condition. It should be noted that the ('BeVo'-woven) black-coloured- and/or linnen-based rank-tabs are x-times more rarely encountered than their runic counterparts and are nowadays almost impossible to encounter. The runes-tab has the white-couloured- and/or: 'Buckram'-based 'backing' whereas the rank-tab shows a (typical) brownish-couloured 'backing' something that is more often observed (as can be seen on the pictures). The rank-tab shows a tiny (pink-coloured) stain (as can be seen on the pictures). I know that this set is highly priced, but it should be noted that in 40 years of collecting, I have only encountered a handfull such (matching) sets. This set was found together as such and I will not separate them and therefore only sell them as a pair. The runic-tab shows a (period-attached-, zinc- ie. Feinzink- based-) pip, denoting that this set was intended to be used by a Waffen-SS-NCO ie. 'SS-Unterscharführer'. Without doubt a truly nice and rarely seen Waffen-SS rank-tab set!
This is a 'male'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in golden-yellow-coloured linnen on a black coloured background. This one has lost its 'RzM-etiket' over the years: I deem it was once there but has been lost over the years (as can be seen on the pictures). The triangle was IMO minimally worn and was once tunic- (ie. shirt-) attached (some minimal stitching-remains are still visible). It should be noted that the 'foreign' ie. exotic HJ/BDM district-triangles rank amongst the most difficult and rare youth-triangles to encounter or to find. This particular 'HJ'-piece can easily be graded: 'rare'. I deem that I priced this example according to its unmistaken rarity and/or desirability!
The attractive - and actuallly rarely encountered! - shoulderstraps are approximately 10,7 cms. sized in length each as more often encountered and have the 'standard-type'- and/or typical black-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks' and show the neat bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured and/or: woolen-type branchcolour ie. piping attached. The straps were IMO only moderately used- and/or worn and do show only minimal staining and/or age caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage (as can be seen on the pictures). The straps - which are IMO from the early-war-period - come naturally mounted on their functional tongues and have the neat 'standard'-type- and/or silverish-grey-coloured- (ie. somewhat sub-dued-) so-called: 'Heeres'-type- NCO-braid and two (identical, zinc-based- and regular-sized-) pips period-attached, denoting the NCOs'-rank of: 'Feldwebel' (ie. sergeant). The pair is IMO a privately-purchased pair (something that can be corroborated by the fact that they are entirely constructed from smooth-type-wool as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a great occasion to acquire a very attractive NCO-type 'Panzer'-shoulderstrap-pair as was intended for usage by a: 'Feldwebel eines Panzer-Regiments': great to complete any 'Panzer'-'wrap-around'-tunic or ideal to store in any shoulderstrap-collection. It should be noted that these genuine 'Heeres-Panzer'-related NCO-type shoulderstrap-pairs are very hard to encounter and can nowadays easily be graded 'rare'!
This attractive 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 virtually mint- ie. unissued- and never confectioned, condition: it comes as 'straightly cut-off the role' (as can be seen on the pictures). The breast-eagle is just a tiny bit stained caused by years of storage 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 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!
This is a truly very attractive - and naturally 100% original and with certainty very rarely seen! - NSKK- (ie. 'National Socialistischer Kraftfahr Korps') officers'-pattern cuff-title (ie. 'Ärmelstreifen für Offiziere') entitled: 'Einsatzbereitschaft' (as was specifically intended for officers serving within the NSKK-emergency-service) and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. minimally used- albeit IMO never tunic-attached-), condition. The full-length cuff-title (that measures approx. 49 cms. as more often) has the typical 'salt and pepper'-reverse and shows all details of an original, period specimen. This band was with certainty produced by the 'Bandfabrik Ewald Vorsteher' (ie. 'BeVo') in Wuppertal but is void of the interwoven company-name on one of its ends (something that is 'standard' with flat-wire-woven examples). This cuff-title is a 100% text-book - and as stated above - original example as executed in the Roman-style script that originates from a US-veteran who 'liberated' this piece in 1945. The piece shows some truly minimal staining and age but was IMO never tunic-attached: it does, however, show some age and or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Of additional interest is to mention that these 'Einsatzbereitschafts'-cuff-titles are often mistaken for the similarly executed Waffen-SS counterparts: these examples were merely intended for NSKK-usage. Simply a great opportunity to acquire a very attractive, NSKK- (ie. 'National Socialistischer Kraftfahr Korps') and 'BeVo-Metallfaden-gewebtes'-type cuff-title for a competitive price!
This is an attractive - fully matching and with certainty scarcely encountered - pair of WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-war-) period, 'M36'-pattern- (ie. pointed-styled- and/or neatly 'cyphered' and/or naturally non-piped-) shoulderstraps, as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat des Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 37' (or: soldier who served within the anti-tank- ie. tank-destroyer unit numbered: '37') and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit IMO only minimally used ie. worn-), condition. The straps - which are both approximately 11,3 cms. sized in length - have the 'standard-type'- and/or darker-green-coloured, 'smooth-woolen'-based 'upperdecks' and have (of course) no piping attached (as per regulation). Both shoulderstraps show the neat (machine-embroidered by means of so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei'-) so-called: 'P'-cyphers and/or '3'- and '7' numerals. All six 'cyphers' are executed in the bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured wool (ie. linnen) as to be expected (see pictures). The straps - which come mounted on their functional tongues and show as stated only moderate usage and/or wear (some minor staining and/or dust is however visible and/or present - see pictures). It should be noted that all 'cyphered': 'Panzerjäger'-related shoulderstraps are very desirable and can easily be regarded 'rare', even more when they are in such a nicely preserved condition. Simply an attractive (and actually not that easily encountered!) early- (ie. pre-war-) period, 'cyphered Heeres' shoulderstrap-pair that belonged to a: 'Soldat des Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 37' and that is IMO accordingly priced!
