Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) neatly 'cyphered', officers'-type shoulderboard as (dual)piped in the white-coloured branchcolour as was intended for a: 'Leutnant der Reserve des Infanterie-Regiments 37'

The attractive - albeit regrettably single - WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboard is (dual)piped in the neat white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour and has the typical dove-grey-coloured 'underlay' and was intended for - and/or with certainty worn by! - a: 'Leutnant der Reserve des Infanterie-Regiments 37' (or: reserve-lieutnant who served within the 'Infanterie'- (ie. infantry-) regiment numbered: '37') and comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used-, worn- and/or: carefully tunic-removed-), condition. The shoulderboard is a 'text-book'-example of the 'Heeres'-type, 'Infanterie'-shoulderboard and shows the silver-coloured (ie. somewhat 'shiny'-pattern) 'upperdeck' (as can be noticed on the pictures). The board show the desirable white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour and has the typical dove-grey-coloured 'underlay' (and was constructed from the typical 'smooth'-type wool as to be expected). The board never had a tongue attached and was clearly used as a board of the 'sew-in-'type (as can be seen on the pictures). It measures approximately 11 cms. in length and was most certainly issued- and/or worn as such and does show some moderate age, wear and/or staining as to be expected. The board has a pair of (neatly bright-golden-toned, larger-sized- and/or early-pattern) '3'- and/or '7'-numerals (ie. 'Ziffern') period-attached. Both devices are just minimally stained- ie. tarnished but have preserved a fine and fairly bright- (and/or quite shiny!) age-patina. Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that this pair came with a (silverish-coloured) so-called: 'screw-on'-button (ie. 'Schraubknopf') attached. Simply an attractive shoulderboard that belonged to a: 'Leutnant der Reserve des Infanterie-Regiments 37'!

The attractive day-badge (ie. 'tinnie' or: 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen') is executed in bright-silverish-coloured- (ie. molded aluminium-based) metal: it shows some normal wear and/or moderate age but has been truly nicely preserved. The neat oval-shaped badge (measuring only 4,4 x 3,8 cms.) comes naturally mounted onto its functional pin- ie. catch(set-up) and has never been cleaned nor polished: it shows some minimal age ie. staining (as can be seen on the pictures).

Attractive, pre-war-period, 'standard-issued'-pattern & black-coloured and/or resin-based WH compass (ie. 'Marschkompass') which is nicely maker- (ie. 'Busch - Rathenow'-) marked and that comes stored in its specific, leather-based etui

The neat - and most certainly desirable! - WH compass - having a 'regular-weight' ie. resin-based top - is still fully functional and is marked with the engraved makers'-designation as mentioned above. The compass shows as stated only moderate wear and/or age but is naturally still fully functional. This fairly 'high-quality'-produced piece was most probably issued in the the early- (ie. pre-) war-years but was most certainly used throughout the WWII. The piece was moderately used and does show as stated above some age and/or moderate wear (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece came stored in its specific, black-coloured- and genuine leather-based pouch (that also retains its period carrying-strap and dito black-coloured snaps).

'Ziffer') and two (equally-styled- and regular-sized) pips period-attached denoting the NCOs'-rank of: 'Oberfeldwebel der Sanitäts-Truppen und Mitglied einer Akademie' (or: medical-sergeant first-class).

The straps are moderately used and/or worn and do show some minimal wear, age and/or staining but are void of any real damage or alike (as can be seen on the pictures). The straps show the desirable white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured and/or 'silk-like'-type piping attached and measure approximately 11,9 cms. in length each. The pieces show the 'standard'-pattern, silverish-grey-coloured NCO-braid attached and come naturally mounted onto their functional tongues (which unusally show a red-coloured, ink-stamped: '4'-numeral as can be seen on the pictures). The pair shows a great set of (identical, Gothic-styled, smaller-sized and/or: typical zinc-based) so-called: 'M'-cyphers, (smaller-sized and equally-styled: '9'-numerals (ie. 'Ziffern') and two (equally styled, regular-sized) pips attached denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Feldwebel' (or: sergeant). The pair is constructed from the typical field-grey-coloured wool and is with certainty a: 'standard-issued'-pair. These type of shoulderstraps are of the typical mid-war-period pattern straps and were worn in the period around 1941/1943 (and were 'worn-out' even during the rest of the war). This particular pair originated from a larger cloth- ie. 'cyphered'-shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired for the web-site.

They each measure approximately 11,5 cms. in length and come without tongues: they were clearly intended - and used! - as a pair of the 'sew-in'-pattern. The pair - which is (I deem) a 'standard-issued'- (ie. non-'privately purchased'-) pair - shows - as stated above - some moderate usage (just some minimal age, dust and/or staining is visible and/or present).

This is an attractive example of a WH (Heeres) related so-called trade- and/or special-career insignia (ie.: 'Heeres-Tätigkeitsabzeichen') as was specifically intended for usage by: 'Sanitätspersonal' (or: medical orderlies- ie. staff) and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly worn and/or carefully tunic-removed-), condition. The patch is neatly hand-embroidered on darker-green-coloured wool and shows no defaults whatsoever: it was clearly once tunic-attached and still shows some stitching- ie. thread-remains. The patch - which shows a (vaguely present) stamped makers'-designation on its back as more often - shows some moderate age, wear and/or staining. This example is additionally 'backed' with greyish-black-coloured linnen as more often seen. Simply an attractive - and clearly used! - 'Heeres-Tätigkeitsabzeichen' as was intended for army 'Sanitätspersonal'!

Attractive - and not that easily found! - WH (Kriegsmarine) EM- (ie. NCO-) pattern visor-cap-eagle (ie. 'Adler für Schirmmütze') being a neatly machine-embroidered example that comes in a moderately worn- ie. carefully cap-removed-, condition

This is an attractive - and actually not that easily found! - WH (Kriegsmarine) enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCO-) pattern visor-cap-eagle (ie. 'Adler für Schirmmütze für Mannschaften u. Unteroffiziere der Kriegsmarine') being a neatly machine-embroidered example that comes mounted onto a typical darker-blue-coloured- and/or smooth-woolen-based background and that comes - I deem - in a moderately worn- ie. carefully cap-removed-, condition. This example is executed in bright-golden-toned linnen on a 'smooth'-type, woolen- and/or darker-blue-coloured background and has an approximate 'wingspan' of 7,6 cms.: it is, however, not backed and does show some minimal fraying on its sides (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply an attractive - and most certainly not that easily found! - piece of Kriegsmarine-related, visor-cap-insignia that would nicely fit to restore any naval visor-cap!

Attractive, 'N.S.D.A.P. Dienstauszeichnung in Bronze' (ie. being of the '3. Stufe für 10 Jahre t.D.) being a non-maker-marked- (and 'heavy-weight'!) example that comes mounted onto its period, full-length ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt')

This is an attractive - and I deem issued albeit hardly worn- ie. 'virtually mint' - example of a so-called: 'N.S.D.A.P. Dienstauszeichnung in Bronze' (ie. being of the '3. Stufe für 10 Jahre treue Dienste') being a non-maker-marked- (and/or so-called: 'heavy-weight') example that comes mounted onto its (full-length, minimally confectioned ie. 24 cms.-sized-) period ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') as issued and/or stored for decades. The medal has most certainly never been cleaned and retains most (ie. all!) of its somewhat light-coloured- and golden-bronze-toned golden finish: it truly has great pronounced detail without showing any damage or alike. The award simply shows hardly any wear nor age but is minimally tarnished (ie. dirty) caused by years of storage only. Simply an attractive 'N.S.D.A.P.-Dienstauszeichnung in Bronze' that is accordingly priced!

Neat, WH (Heeres) 'Armwinkel' (ie: arm rank-chevron) as executed on typical, field-grey-coloured wool as was specifically intended for usage by a soldier with the rank of: 'Obergefreiter'

This is a neat - and I deem only minimally worn and/or used - example of a WH (Heeres) 'Armwinkel' (or: arm rank-chevron) as was executed on typical, field-grey-coloured wool as was intended for usage by a soldier with the rank of: 'Obergefreiter' (ie. private first-class) and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit minimally used- and - I deem - once-tunic-attached-), condition. The chevron is neatly executed and shows a double-stripe of 'standard'-pattern- and/or: bluish-grey-coloured (ie. 'sub-dued'-type) NCO-braid attached (as can be seen on the pictures). This particular example is not 'backed' and shows some obvious age, wear and/or minimal staining (as can be seen on the pictures). It sounds maybe strange but these 'simple' Heeres rank-insignia are quite hard to encounter. Simply an attractive WH (Heeres) rank-patch that will be hard to be upgraded!

WH (Kriegsmarine o. Heeres) bright-golden-toned, light-weight- (ie. aluminium-) based breast-eagle ('Brustadler') as was specifically intended for usage on the white-coloured, naval summer-tunics (ie. 'WH-KM Sommerblusen')

This a truly attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine o. Heeres) bright-golden-toned- (ie. truly 'frosted'!) and/or metal- (ie. light-weight- and/or aluminium-) based breast-eagle (ie. 'Brustadler für Sommerrock der Kriegsmarine') as was specifically intended for usage on the white-coloured, naval summer tunics and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. minimally used- ie. worn-), condition. The detailed piece that shows a clear makers'-designation (ie. logo ie. 'Raute' with an 'M'-character inside it) on its back is a 'standard-pattern'-example that has a very nice, 'frosted' and/or detailed appearance. The piece was, however, I deem minimally worn and shows some minimal wear and/or age. It shows however no damage whatsoever: truly all of its so-called: 'hochpolierte Kanten' (or polished sides) are still nicely preserved and/or present (as can be seen on the pictures). The eagle just shows some minimal age ie. staining as to be expected. The piece comes mounted onto its original (and naturally functional) pin and also retains its (often missing!) 'third attachment-pin' (shaped like a clip - see pictures). These attractive tunic-eagles can easily be considered 'fairly scarce'. It should be noted that this pattern breast-eagle was seen on the various naval summer-tunics but could eventually also be used for a WH (Heeres) general-officers'-summer-tunic (there was no difference between the metal breast-eagles used for these two branches). Simply a truly attractive WH (Kriegsmarine) breast-eagle: hard to find a better example for a more interesting price!

Attractive, Waffen-SS enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCO-type-) belt-buckle (being a typical, unmarked steel-based: 'Overhoff & Cie'-example) that comes in a moderately issued- and/or used- ie. worn, condition

The attractive (and as always naturally steel-based) Waffen-SS enlisted-mens (ie. NCO- type) belt-buckle comes in a moderately used- ie. worn condition. It retains a fair bit of its original-applied silverish-coloured- and/or sprayed finish an was just moderately used and/or worn (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece shows some minimal dirt and/or evident (rust)staining and does also show some minimal staning (it has, however, most certainly not been polished nor cleaned). The buckle has maintained a very detailed appearance and retains a very nice and/or decent, somewhat tarnished age-patina (as can be seen on the pictures). The buckle is typical, non-maker-marked, so-called: 'Overhoff & Cie'-example as is more often encountered. As certainly known are these original steel-based SS-buckles nowadays getting really hard to find something that most certainly merits my asking-price!

The straps are regular-sized- and measure approximately 10,5 cms. in length each. The pair on offer here just shows some minimal age, wear and or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that both inside of the tongues show a clearly ink-stamped size (that reads: '10,5' as can be seen on the pictures).

This is an attractive - and as such actually scarcely encountered albeit regrettably single! - early- (ie. pre-war-) period WH (Heeres), 'M36- o. M40'-pattern (pointed-style-) 'cyphered' (and as per regulation, non-piped) NCO-type shoulderstrap as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - a: 'Feldwebel u. Mitglied des des Unteroffiziersschule Sigmaringen' (or: sergeant and possible trainer who served within the NCO-school as was based in the town of Sigmaringen) and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used and/or worn-), condition. The neat shoulderstrap - which is of the pre- ie. early-war-type - has a darker-green-coloured and woolen-based 'upperdeck' as to be expected and has of course no piping (it is a typical strap of the 'generic pattern' as to be expected and/or mentioned above). The tongue is naturally also present and/or functional. The strap - which measures approximately 11,5 cms. in length - shows the regular-pattern, silverish-coloured and/or: 'standard-pattern' NCO-braid attached. The strap shows a neat (regular-sized-, Gothic-styled- and/or: aluminium-based) 'US'-cypher (ie. 'Ziffer'), equally styled- and smaller-sized 'S'-cypher and single pip attached denoting the NCOs function and/or rank of: 'Feldwebel'. All 3 devices (as well as the strap itself) show some moderate age- ie. fair tarnish and/or wear (some minor staining and/or dust is visible-/present). It should be noted that all 'cyphered'-type shoulderstraps can be easily regarded 'fairly scarce'. it originates from an older shoulderstrap-collection that was compiled over decades and that I recently acquired for the web-site. In any case is this an attractive and/or early-war period, neatly 'cyphered Heeres'-related shoulderstrap as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel u. Mitglied des des Unteroffiziersschule Sigmaringen': too bad that it is only a single strap!

Attractive, 'Nahkampfspange in Silber' (or: silver-class close-combat clasp ie. CCC) being a maker- (ie. 'F.L.L.'-) marked- so-called: '2nd pattern'-specimen as was produced by the maker- (ie. 'Hersteller') 'Friedrich Linden'

This is a neat - albeit clearly worn- and/or used! - example of a so-called: 'Nahkampfspange in Silber' (or: silver-class close-combat clasp ie. CCC) being a clearly maker- (ie. 'F.L.L.'-) marked and/or minimally converse-shaped, so-called: 'second pattern'-specimen as was produced by the desirable maker- (ie. 'Hersteller') 'Friedrich Linden' and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly used ie. worn-), condition. The piece - which has still a very detailed and/or pronounced appearance - has lost most (ie. all) of its silverish finish (which is just somewhat 'faded by age' ie. 'migriert' as more often) as can be seen on the pictures. The 'Spange' is as stated a minimally converse-shaped example that comes mounted onto its (functional- and/or copper-coloured) flute-shaped pin (and/or typical 'thick-wire'-type catch- ie. catch-set-up) both which are of course still present, unaltered and/or fully functional. The piece shows, however, a (period?) replaced (bluish-black-toned, metal-based and 'crimped') 'back-plate'. A similar example is also described in the excellent reference-book entitled: 'The German Close Combat Clasp of World War II' by my friend Thomas M. Durante wherein this particular pattern is given the unique reference-numeral: '2.4 - 'FLL 2nd'-pattern. The piece was found as such at a private-household in Germany and was truly never before part of a collection. Simply a neat example of a silver-class 'Nahkampfspange': it should be noted that original examples of this neat - and fairly uncommon! - combat-award are nowadays getting hard to find. I deem that I have priced this silver-class 'F.L.L.'-example according to its presumably replaced 'back-plate'!

The neat strap - which has the 'standard'-pattern, field-grey-coloured and/or woolen-based 'upperdeck' is textbook in all facets. It shows the neat white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured- (and/or: desirable 'silk-like'-type-) piping attached (as can be seen on the pictures). The strap which measures approximately 10,2 cms. in length comes naturally mounted onto its functional tongue (that shows some glue-remains on its back). The shoulderstrap shows a neat aluminium-based and Gothic-styled so-called: 'W'-cypher (and equally styled- and/or regular-sized-) pip attached. Moreover, does the strap shows the 'standard'-type, silverish-coloured NCO-braid attached denoting the NCOs-rank of: 'Feldwebel' (ie. sergeant). The strap shows - as stated above - only moderate usage ie. wear (some age, dust and/or staining is visible and/or present as can be seen on the pictures): it originates from an older shoulderstrap-collection that was compiled over decades and that I recently acquired for the web-site. I deem this a superb occasion to acquire a very attractive and most certainly desirable NCO-type, 'Infanterie'- ie. 'Wachbatallion Berlin'-related shoulderstrap: too bad that it is only a single specimen!

The badge - which comes naturally mounted onto its functional, long-sized- (and/or copper-toned, thin-shaped) pin and that has an undamaged and/or: functional catch - still retains extraordinary and/or pronounced detail (as can be seen on the pictures). It must, however, be stated that this piece was possibly re-finished with golden-toned paint (I really cannot say when this was done).

The single shoulderboard - which comes without tongue and that is of the so-called: 'sew-in-pattern' - is equally 'piped' in the similar, golden-yellow- (ie.

'flugrost' (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece - that was recently found as such at a German private-household - can naturally easily be completed ie. mounted onto a piece of woolen-based uniform-cloth if wished so.

WWI-pattern, black-class wound-badge (ie.: 'Verwundeten Abzeichen in Schwarz') being a very detailed example of the so-called: 'Durchbrochener'-pattern (as was presumably produced by the desirable maker ie. 'Hersteller': 'Godet - Berlin')

This is an attractive - and truly very detailed! - example of a WWI-period, black-class wound-badge (ie. 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Schwarz') being a moderately used example of the so-called: 'Durchbrochener'-pattern as was presumably produced by the desirable maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'Godet - Berlin' and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit moderately used- and/or worn-), condition. The (non-magnetic) badge - which is an unmarked version as is always encountered with this type of WBs - shows only minimal wear and/or age and retains most of its black-coloured- and somewhat 'shiny' finish (as can be seen on the pictures). The badge - which comes naturally mounted onto its functional, long-sized- (and copper-toned, thin-shaped) pin and that has an undamaged and/or: functional catch - still retains extraordinary and/or pronounced detail (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece originates from a private-household in Germany and was never before in collectors'-hands. Simply an attractive and original 'Durchbrochenes' specimen that is I deem accordingly priced!

Silver-toned- and aluminium-based EM- (ie. NCO-) pattern, RAD (ie. 'Reichsarbeitsdienst') cap-badge being a maker- (ie. 'A&S'-) marked- and/or very detailed example that was specifically intended for usage on the RAD-caps (aka: 'Kaffeebohnen')

This is a neat, typical 'frosted'-silver-toned and/or aluminium-based EM- (ie. NCO-) pattern, RAD (ie. 'Reichsarbeitsdienst') cap-badge being a neatly maker- (ie. 'A&S'- thus by 'Assmann & Söhne'-) marked-, '1937'-dated- and/or very detailed example that was specifically intended for usage on the RAD-caps (aka: 'Kaffeebohnen') and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. just minimally used- and- I deem - once cap-attached-), condition. The piece is executed in 'stamped' (ie. pressed) alumnium-based metal and truly retains all of its red- and/or black-painted colour as to be expected. Next to the clearly present makers'-designation does the badge also bear a: 'Ges.Gesch.'-patent-pending marking and/or date of production ('1937') (as can be seen on the pictures). The badge comes with both its (once bent but still functional) aluminium-based prongs present and in place and can as such easily be re-mounted onto a RAD-cap. The badge truly shows great pronounced detail and will be very hard to be upgraded!

Attractive, HJ (ie. 'Hitlerjugend') enamelled lapel-pin (ie.: 'Raute') being a bright-red-coloured- and/or truly detailed - and untouched! - example showing an: 'RzM - M1/25'-makers'-designation on its back

The tiny badge - which is truly bright-red-coloured and that is somewhat 'darkened' caused by normal age ie. wear - is a truly detailed example that is showing an: 'RzM - M1/25'-makers'-designation on its back (as can be noticed on the pictures). The tiny lapel-pin was most certainly never cleaned and is just a tiny bit stained (some darkened age-patina is present and/or visible) but the pin truly shows no enamel damage whatsoever: just some regular wear-marks- ie. minimal scratches are present and visible (it was, however, most certainly never cleaned nor polished). This is the version having a regular 'pin- ie. catch set-up which is naturally still present and/or fully functional. Simply an attractive 'RzM - M1/25'-marked example that is I deem accordingly priced!

Yellowish-golden-toned- and/or partly machine-embroidered- (ie. 'BeVo'-woven-) so-called: 'DAF' (ie. 'Deutsche Arbeitsfront') cap-badge being an example that is 'RzM 374'-marked on its back but that comes with a re-attached pin

This is a neat, yellowish-golden-toned- and/or partly machine-embroidered- (ie. 'BeVo'-woven-) so-called: 'DAF' (ie. 'Deutsche Arbeitsfront') cap-badge showing the typical 'DAF'-related so-called: 'Zahnrad'-device in its centre and being a detailed maker- (ie. 'RzM 374'-) marked example that comes with a re-attached pin as recently found. The 'BeVo'-like badge is neatly fitted in a golden-toned metal-based frame and was (period)repaired and does show a (somewhat roughly) re-attached pin on its back (most certainly done for attaching it onto a cap). The piece shows some moderate age, wear and/or minimal staining. Of course, did I price this 'DAF'- (ie. 'Deutsche Arbeitsfront'-) related item according to its period-repaired condition!

Attractive, linnen-based armband (ie. 'Armbinde') as was intended for usage by the staff of the: 'SA-Wehrmannschaften' (being a hardly used example that still shows its period-attached so-called: 'RzM'-etiket)

This is an attractive - and very well-preserved! - example of a bright-red-coloured- and/or linnen-based armband (ie. 'Armbinde') as was intended for usage by the: 'SA-Wehrmannschaften' being a minimally used- ie. slightly worn example that still shows its period-attached- and/or paper-based, so-called: 'RzM'-etiket and that comes in an overall very nice- (and I deem hardly worn- nor used-), condition. These decorative armbands - having a neat 'BeVo'-woven 'centered' roundel attached - were intended for specific wear on the civilian-attire but also do pictures exist were these armbands are worn on the specifically-styled- and/or brown-coloured uniforms of men attached to the so-called: 'SA-Wehrmannschaften'. The bright-red-coloured armband (as executed in bright-red coloured linnen) shows as stated above a seperately attached white-coloured 'center-piece' (depicting a golden-bronze-coloured 'SA Sportabzeichen') period-'sewn-on'. The piece on offer here - which was off-factory sewn-together - measures 43 cms. by 10,5 cms. (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very attractive example of this decorative SA-related armband: hard to find a more nicely preserved example for a more interesting price!

Superb, bright-golden-toned- and/or: 'Cupal'-based 'DAF' (ie. 'Deutsche Arbeitsfront') so-called: 'Werkschar'-cap-cocarde being a detailed example that shows a (double!) makers'- (ie. 'A'-) and/or: 'RzM M1/17'-designation

This is a truly very attractive and detailed - and actually quite rarely found! - bright-golden-toned- and/or (I deem) 'Cupal'-based so-called: 'DAF' (ie. 'Deutsche Arbeitsfront') cap-cocarde (ie. 'Schirmmützenkokarde für DAF Werktruppführer o. Betriebsblockobmann u. höher') being a very detailed example that shows a (double!) makers'- (ie. 'A'- or: 'Assmann u. Söhne'-) and/or: 'RzM M1/17'-designation and that comes in an overall very nice- (I deem never worn- nor once cap-attached-), condition. The very detailed (and somewhat converse-shaped) piece shows the typical 'DAF'-related so-called: 'Zahnrad'-device in its centre and still retains both of its (copper-toned- and never bent) prongs in place (naturally intended for attaching it to a cap). The piece just shows some minimal age- and/or staining but was never cleaned nor polished: it still retains all of its off-factory-applied 'frosted appearance' (as can be seen on the pictures). Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that the piece shows a (double!) makers'- (ie. 'A'-) designation on its back and/or: 'RzM M1/17'-designation on its prongs (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very attractive - and most certaintly rarely encountered! - fairly high-ranked, 'DAF'- (ie. 'Deutsche Arbeitsfront'-) related 'Werkschar'-cap-badge that is accordingly priced: only the second such rare piece I ever had on offer!

Attractive, darker-bronze-toned (and I deem 'Cupal'-based!) 'Kyfhäuserbund Schiessauszeichnung' depicting the 'Kyfhäuser'-monument and double 'swastika'-devices and bearing the text that reads: 'Wettkampfsieger 1938'

The attractive reddish-bronze-toned (and I deem luxuriously styled- and/or: typical 'Cupal'-based!) so-called: 'Kyfhäuserbund Schiessauszeichnung' (or: shooting- ie. marksmans'-badge) on offer here is a non-maker marked example depicting the famous 'Kyfhäuser'-monument, Iron Cross-symbol and double 'swastika'-devices and bearing the text: 'Wettkampfsieger 1938' and that comes in an overall, nicely preserved condition. The badge on offer here shows some minimal wear and/or age but has truly been nicely preserved over the years. The somewhat converse-shaped badge comes naturally mounted onto its typical (double) darker-blue-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'backing' and has simply never been cleaned nor polished: most of its (off-factory!) polished-sides are present and very nicely preserved (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece is very detailed and truly retains all of its fairly bright and/or: minimally tarnished bronze-coloured finish. Simply a neat - and not that often seen! - 'Kyfhäuserbund Schiessauszeichnung' (or: shooting- ie. marksmans'-badge) that is accordingly priced!

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/or worn

This is a truly attractive - and in this moderately worn- ie. clearly used 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 typical, woolen-based backing and that comes in an overall nice- (ie. I deem clearly used- and/or 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 of its four original prongs (being attached to the sides of the shield as more often encountered with original 'Kuban'-campaign-shields as can be seen on the pictures). The piece still retains (most of) its black-coloured paper-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 most of its somewhat glossy appearance and retains a fair bit of its 'Brennlack'-type surface (showing some darkened tarnish and has never been cleaned: it does show some minimal staining as is visible on the pictures). It should however be noted that Ithe (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 example is accordingly priced!

Attractive, WH (LW) bluish-grey-coloured- and/or steel-based belt-buckle being a maker- (ie. 'H. Aurich'-) marked- and/or: '1941'-dated example that comes mounted onto its leather-based tab and that comes in a moderately used- ie. worn, condition

This is an attractive example of a WH (Luftwaffe) bluish-grey-coloured- and/or steel-based belt-buckle being a neatly maker- (ie. 'H. Aurich - Dresden'-) marked- and/or: '1941'-dated example that comes mounted onto its natural brownish-coloured- and/or leather-based tab and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. moderately worn- ie. used-), condition. The buckle retains most (ie. almost all!) of its fairly 'shiny'-styled, bluish-grey-coloured finish without showing any real defaults: it was simply never cleaned nor polished and does show some minimal staining and/or obvious paint-loss mainly on its back (as can be seen on the pictures). The inside of the buckle shows some obvious dust and/or rust caused by over more than 70 years of storage. The leather-based tab is naturally also still fully functional and souple: it shows a clearly present and typically shaped: 'H. Aurich - Dresden - 1941'-stamp (as can be clearly seen in the pictures) and remains in an equally nicely preserved condition overall (it was never greased nor oiled but does show some age ie. staining). The buckle itself is a non-maker-marked example as is more often observed. The piece was recently found at a private-household in Germany and was never before part of a collection. Simply an attractive, 'Hermann Aurich'-marked, 'Luftwaffe'-example that is priced according to its overall very nice ie. moderately used- ie. worn condition!
