This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine), tropical- ie. 'DAK'- (ie. 'Deutsches Afrikakorps'-) related- and/or aluminium-based, so-called 'pith-helmet'-eagle-shield (ie. 'Adlerschild für Tropenhelm') being an unmarked example that comes in a virtually mint- ie. unissued- (and/or never pith-helmet-attached-), condition. The decorative shield retains its original (three) unfolded- and/or also aluminium-based pins in place and comes in an unissued condition. Moreover, does it retain a fully preserved golden-toned- and/or black-coloured- (ie. painted) surface (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a nice occasion to acquire a seldomly seen naval-related 'pith-helmet'-shield for an interesting price!
This a truly attractive, two-pieced (ie. 'Freistaat Preussen'-related-) set holding two golden-toned- (ie. 'Feuervergoldeter'), metal-based visor cap-eagles (ie. 'Adler für Schirmmütze') as was specifically intended for usage by: 'Beamte im Bergbau o. Justiz' (or: mining- ie. justice-officials) and that comes in an overall nice (albeit IMO moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. Both (unmarked) pieces have an approximate wingspan of approximately 52 (ie. 25) mm. and are both 'standard-pattern'-examples that have both a nice, 'frosty' and/or detailed appearance. The piece (that are void of a swastika in their centres) was, however, clearly worn and show both some obvious wear and/or age. Both have, however, no damage whatsoever: most of their so-called: 'hochpolierte Kanten' (or: polished sides) and are still nicely preserved (see pictures). The cap-badges just show some minimal age ie. staining as to be expected. The pieces come both mounted on their original (and naturally functional) double prongs (as can be seen on the pictures). The asking-price is for the set of two cap-eagles. These attractive 'Freistaat Preussen'-related- cap-eagles can easily be considered 'fairly scarce'. Simply a truly attractive 'Adler für Schirmmütze'-set that belonged to a: 'Beamte im Bergbau o. Justiz'!
This is a truly very attractive - and/or fully matching! - neatly 'cyphered' (and/or IMO mid- ie. later-war-period-) WH (Kriegsmarine) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap-pair (as was intended for usage on the various field-grey-coloured navy tunics), as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat eines Küsten-Artillerie-Regiments' (or soldier who served within a naval coastal-artillery unit) that comes in an overall very nice (albeit clearly used ie. worn-), condition. The straps - which are 'text-book' in all facets and measure approximately 12 cms. in length each (and have a width of 5,2 cms. as usually encountered) have the field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks' and come naturally mounted on their functional (and/or regular-sized-) tongues. The straps show the neat interwoven 'anchor'-cyphers (as executed in golden-yellow-coloured linnen), denoting the soldiers rank of: 'Soldat'. The straps - which originate from a private household where they were recently uncovered - show moderate age- and/or wear but are totally void of any damage or alike (see pictures). Of interest is, moreover, the fact that the inside of both tongues show a (unreadable) blue-coloured ink-stamps (as can be seen on the pictures). It should be noted that all EM- ie. NCO-type 'Küstenartillerie'-insignia-pieces are quite hard to encounter: those 'cyphered' ones even more so, which grades them easily as 'scarce'. Simply an attractive 'cyphered' naval, EM-type shoulderstrap-pair as was intended for usage on the naval field-grey-coloured attire!
This a truly attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - Third-Reich-period- (ie. 'Freistaat Preussen'-related-) golden-toned- (ie. 'Feuervergoldeter'), metal-based visor cap-eagle (ie. 'Adler für Schirmmütze') as was specifically intended for usage by: 'Beamte im Bergbau o. Justiz' (or: mining- ie. justice-officials) and that comes in an overall nice (albeit IMO moderately used- ie. worn-), condition.
The (unmarked) piece has a wingspan of approximately 55 mm. and is a 'standard-pattern' example that has a very nice, 'frosty' and/or detailed appearance. The piece (that shows a swastika in its centre) was, however, clearly worn and shows some obvious wear and/or age. It shows however no damage whatsoever: most of its so-called: 'hochpolierte Kanten' (or polished sides) are still nicely preserved (see pictures). The cap-badge just shows some minimal age ie. staining as to be expected. The piece comes mounted on its original (and naturally functional) double prongs (as can be seen on the pictures). These attractive 'Freistaat Preussen'-related- cap-eagles can easily be considered 'fairly scarce'. Simply a truly attractive 'Adler für Schirmmütze': hard to find a better example for a more interesting price!
This is an attractive - and/or fully matching and not that easily found! - pair of WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-) war period, 'M36'-pattern (pointed-styled-), 'cyphered', NCO-type shoulderstraps (being a pair having no branchcolour as per regulation) as was intended for - and/or worn by! - a: 'Feldwebel eines Lehr-Regiments' (or: NCO ie. sergeant and presumably an instructor who served within a schooling- or trainings-regiment) and that comes in overall nice- (albeit moderately used- ie. worn- and/or tunic-removed-), condition. The neat straps - which are both approximately 11 cms. sized in length - have the 'standard-pattern' and/or: dark-green-coloured- and woolen-based 'upperdecks' and have as stated above no piping nor branchcolour attached: they are of the generic pattern and could be worn by a sergeant ie. instructor who served within various branches or: 'Waffengattungen' (as can be seen on the pictures). The shoulderstraps show the (standard-pattern-) silver-coloured NCO-braid attached and have each a single (regular-sized- and/or aluminium-based-) pip period-attached, denoting that the pair was intended for an NCO with the rank of: 'Feldwebel' (ie. sergeant). Next to this, the pair shows a matching set of (also aluminium-based- and/or Gothic-styled-) so-called: 'L'- cyphers attached. All 4 devices were with certainty period-attached and do show some regular age and/or minimal tarnish. The pair comes mounted on its original tongues and does show some minimal age-, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very attractive - and IMO quite early- (ie. pre-war-) period, 'Heeres' NCO-type, shoulderstrap-pair that belonged to a: 'Feldwebel eines Lehr-Regiments': I deem that I have priced this attractive pair accordingly!
This is a very attractive medal-set: 'Winterschlacht im Osten 1941-42' (or: Eastern Front medal), being an acttractive albeit non-maker-marked specimen that comes packed in its original pouch of issue as was produced by the: 'Julius Maurer'-company and that comes in an overall very nice (ie. IMO never used- nor worn- ie. virtually mint- & unissued-), 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-based pouch. The medal - which is a zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based specimen - was never used nor issued: it came still 'packed' in its piece of thin-shaped 'wrapping-paper'. The medal has a quite 'matted' (ie. greyish-blue-) coloured age-patina (simply caused by decades of storage and minimal wear) but was most certainly never cleaned nor polished and therefore are details and/or finish still very nice and/or crisp. The pouch is in an equally nicely preserved condition: it is fully functional (and shows the printed makers'-mark of the company: 'Julius Maurer' based in the town of Oberstein as is printed on its back as stated above). Simply a very attractive and completely 'matching' 'Winterschlacht im Osten'-set!
This is a truly very attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres), mid-war period-, 'M43'-pattern, NCO-type shoulderstrap having the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or clearly worn by! - an: 'Unteroffzier des Infanterie-Regiments 6' (or: junior-sergeant who served within the infantry regiment, numbered: '9') and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used- ie. worn- and/or tunic-removed-), condition. The strap - which measures approximately 11,2 cms. in length - has the 'standard-pattern' and/or: field-grey-coloured-, woolen-based 'upperdeck' and has the desirable 'silk-like'-type- and/or white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour ie. piping attached (see pictures). The shoulderstrap shows the (standard-pattern-) silver-coloured NCO-braid attached and has moreover a neat so-called: 'Übershube' (showing the machine-stitched '9'-numeral-) and bright-green- (ie. 'wiesengrüner'-) coloured regimental-indicator 'Lasche' period-attached, denoting that the strap was intended for an NCO with the rank of 'Unteroffzier'. The strap comes mounted on its original tongue and does show some moderate age-, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very interesting, mid-war-period-, 'Heeres' NCO-type, 'Infanterie'-related shoulderstrap that belonged to an: 'Unteroffzier des Infanterie-Regiments 6': too bad that it is only a single example!
This is an attractive example of a 'standard-pattern' HJ- (ie. 'Hitlerjugend'-) related armband (ie. 'Armbinde') being of the 'entirely-woven'-type in a technique similar to the 'BeVo'-weave pattern and that comes in an overall very nice (ie. IMO minimally used- ie. worn-), condition. These linnen-based armbands were 'standard' for usage by the various HJ- (ie. DJ-) members and/or officials (and were worn on the left upper-arm of the linnen shirts and/or tunics). This example - which has been 'off-factory sewn-together - has a total size of approximately 42 cms. and is 11 cms. wide as usual - and is constructed from bright-red-coloured linnen and shows a neatly interwoven and/or square-sized, so-called: 'swastika'-patch and/or horizontally- (and/or interwoven-) 'stripe'. Both stripe and/or patch are executed in a technique similar to the 'BeVo'-weave pattern. The armband was IMO hardly used and still shows its period-attached 'RzM'-etiket (as is not always the case). The armband is just a tiny bit stained (it shows a blood(?)-stain in its upper-right corner) and is moreover a tiny bit wrinkled (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece is very nicely made and shows only moderate age ie. staining (IMO simply caused by decades of storage and/or handling). Simply a very nice and desirable HJ- (ie. DJ-) related item that is IMO impossible to be upgraded!
This is a truly attractive example of an: 'Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse' (or: Iron Cross 1st class) as was executed in the scarcely observed, so-called: 'screw-back-version', being an 'L/54'- (= 'Schauerte u. Höhfeld'-) marked example, that comes stored in its typical etui and that comes in an overall nice (IMO issued- and/or moderately worn- ie. used-), condition. The cross - which is a somewhat vaulted ie. converse-shaped example as to be expected - has IMO never been cleaned and retains a somewhat blackened- (ie. tarnished-) age-patina and/or great pronounced detail. This example - which is an evident specimen as produced by the: 'Schauerte u. Höhfeld'-company based in the town of Lüdenscheid - comes on its functional 'screw-back'- (ie. 'an der Schraube'-) set-up. The small-sized 'pin' (present to additionally and/or firmly attach the cross to a tunic) is naturally also present and in place (see pictures). This piece - which shows a 'blackened' and/or fairly 'satin-like'- ie. 'matted' inner core that hardly shows wear - has all the specific specifications of a by: 'Schauerte u. Höhfeld'-produced screw-back-IC (the makers'-code 'L/54' is stamped in lower-section on the back as to be expected). It is 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: a fair bit of its polished-sides (ie. 'hochpolierte Kanten') have been nicely preserved (see pictures). The piece originates from a private household in Germany and came stored in its typical etui that is in an equally nicely preserved condition. It has a fully preserved, black-coloured and/or velvet-based interior-section and shows the printed LDO-logo in its lid (see pictures). Simply a truly attractive and actually fairly unusually encountered IC-first-class-set that was recently uncovered at a private houshold and that was never before part of a collection: I deem that I have priced this attractive IC first-class-set by 'Schauerte u. Höhfeld' accordingly!
This is a truly very attractive - and in this stunning condition rarely encountered! - DRK (ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz' or German Red Cross), aluminium-based, officers'-type belt-buckle, being a maker- (ie. 'Ges.Gesch. 2'-) marked example, that comes in an overall very nice (IMO hardly used- nor worn-), condition. The buckle was IMO issued ie. worn but nevertheless still retains extraordinary detail as to be expected. The piece has a typical, silver-coloured- (ie. 'frosted'-) aluminium-like- appearance (ie. colour) and has never been cleaned nor polished (it has just acquired some blackened tarnish and/or normal age-patina over the years but is totally void of any damage or alike). The piece is neatly maker- (ie. 'Ges.Gesch. 2'-) marked (as can be seen from the photos). Simply a very attractive, German Red Cross officers'-type belt-buckle that is IMO priced according to its stunning condition!
