This is a very attractive example of a WH (Heeres) officers'-type, hand-embroidered- (and truly very detailed!) breast-eagle (ie. 'Brustadler für Offiziere') being executed in bright-silverish-coloured braid on a darker-green-coloured background and comes in an overall very nice- (albeit moderately worn- ie. once tunic-attached-), condition. This example - having a 'wingspan' of approximately 10,4 cms. - is nicely hand-embroidered using (bright and shiny-) silverish-coloured 'braid' on a darker-green-coloured (and/or woolen-based-) background and has some highlighted areas as executed in darker-green-coloured thread (as can be seen on the pictures). The eagle was carefully tunic-removed and still shows some stitching ie. thread-remains: it shows a white-coloured- and linnen-based 'backing' (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a neat example of an officers'-type breast-eagle that is accordingly priced!
The neat and/or multi-coloured Spanish-produced campaign-medal retains all of its fairly darkened, silver-toned finish and retains a very detailed and/or pronounced appearance: it is just a bit dirty and/or tarnished simply caused by decades of storage and/or mimimal wear. The front of the medal shows an (enamelled) iron-cross with swastika as to be expected. The back shows some Russian scenery and the text and/or date: 'Rusia 1941'. The medal - which was I deem clearly issued ie. worn - comes mounted on its original piece of confectioned and/or folded ribbon (which measures in total 10 cms. and that comes mounted on its golden-toned coloured and/or typical Spanish-issued so-called: mounting 'Spange' ie. bar (see pictures). This is the (one-pieced-) version made-out of silvered- and copper- (ie. brass-) based metal as was specifically intended for usage by enlisted-men and/or NCOs (the officers-version was more luxuriously styled and came as a three-pieced version). These medals were produced (since 1943) by the Spanish-based company named: 'Díez y Compañía SA' based in the town of Madrid. Simply a nice opportunity to aquire a very attracttive example of the Spanish-issued commemorative- ie. campaign-medal as was intended for usage by the troops of the 'Blue-Division'!
This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - WH (Heeres) lapel-pin or campaign-shield (ie. 'Traditions- o. Erinnerungsabzeichen') as was worn by members of the '90. Panzergrenadier-Division' (aka: 'Sardinienschild') and that comes in an overall very nice- (and I deem only moderately used- and/or worn-), condition. The lapel-pin - which comes as recently found at a private Household in Germany - depicts the map of the island of Sardinia with a diagonally-placed sword across mentioning the towns of Olbia and Cagliari and comes in an overall nice, albeit moderately used- and/or worn-, condition: it was made of silver-toned metal and retains most of its silverish-finish (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece has a slightly darkened age-patina but has never been cleaned and retains its detailed appearance. These 'semi-official' pins were worn on both the 'M43-type'-caps and/or civil ie. military attire. The neat pin - which comes on its functional pin- ie. catch-set-up - is also figured in the Heering-Hüsken lapel-pin-catalogue, wherein it is given a unique number: 9841A and an estimated value of 380 Euro. As possibly known have these pins a 'semi-official status': these pins were, however, awarded with an accompanying, specific award-document and were also appropiately entered in both: 'Wehrpass' and/or 'Soldbuch'. Simply a very attractive and desirable 'Panzergrenadiere'-related item that is accordingly priced!
This is an attractive example of a: 'Treuedienst Ehrenzeichen 2. Klasse' (or: silver-class, loyal-service-medal for 25 yrs. of loyal-service) being a non-maker-marked example that comes mounted on its original ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') and that comes stored in its non-maker-marked etui as issued and stored for decades. The medal is a truly nicely preserved piece that retains all of its period silver-coloured- and/or fairly 'frosted' finish: it also retains most of its: 'hochpolierte Kanten' (or polished sides) but is a tiny bit stained (it has never been cleaned). It comes mounted on its cornflower-blue-coloured ribbon which still has its period- (silver-toned-) attachment-pin in place as was intended for wearing the medal on a tunic. The medal has never been cleaned and has an immaculate (ie. fully undamaged) enamelled swastika. The medal came stored in its original, bright-red-coloured etui (ie. 2-pieced box). This etui is fully undamaged but does show some minimal age and/or staining. Simply a very nice example that will be hard to be upgraded!
These neat coloured lanyards were employed as an indication of both grade- and/or function and saw usage within the HJ ('Hitlerjugend'), BDM ('Bund Deutscher Mädel') and/or DJ ('Deutsches Jungvolk'). The neat darker-green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured and/or twisted example on offer here comes was as such intended to signify the youth rank ie. function of: 'Scharführer' (within the HJ etc.). The neat lanyard - which measures approximately 23,5 cms. from top to end - shows minimal wear ie. usage: it was I deem hardly worn ie. used and was kept as such for decades. Simply an attractive, youth-related 'leaders-lanyard' (ie. 'Führerschnur') that will be hard to be upgraded
This is a truly attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - I deem mid-war-period- (ie. 'M43'-pattern-) NCO-type shoulderstraps as piped in the desirable, darker-blue- (ie. 'blauer'-) coloured branchcolour as was intended for - and/or clearly used by! - an: 'Oberfeldwebel der Sanitäts-Truppen' (or: sergeant first-class who served within an army medical-unit ie. regiment) and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used ie. worn-), condition. The straps - which are of the mid-war- ie. so-called: 'M43'-type - have the field-grey-coloured 'upperdecks' and have the neat, darker-blue- (ie. 'blauer'-) coloured and/or 'silk-like'-type piping attached. The tongues are naturally also present. The straps - which are regular-sized- and measure approximately 11 cms. in length each - show the neat, somewhat shiny and/or silver-coloured- ('standard'-pattern- ie. 'Heeres-type'-) NCO-braid and four (identical- and/or aluminium-based-) pips attached denoting the NCO's rank of: 'Oberfeldwebel'. The pair on offer here just shows some minimal age, wear and or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very attractive and fully 'text-book', M43-pattern 'Oberfeldwebel der Sanitäts-Truppen'-shoulderstrap-pair that will be hard to be upgraded!
This is an attractive - and with certainty rarely found! - example of a silver-coloured- and/or aluminium-based, so-called: 'SA-Wehrmannschaften' (or national socialist students'-league) belt-buckle, being a maker- (ie. 'RzM M4/22'-) marked example as was produced by the: 'C.T. Dicke'-company (being the only known producer of these buckles) and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly used- ie. worn-), condition. This example - which was produced after 1943 - retains most of its (fairly matted-) silverish finish but does show the obvious signs of having been worn and/or stored ie. preserved for years: the overall detail, however, is still very pronounced and naturally fully present. The piece was never cleaned and still shows some dust and staining as acquired over the years: moreover, does it show some oxidation-traces but is not damaged (as can be seen on the pictures). It should be noted that excellent (molded) copies of this particular buckle do exist: this is, however, a stamped example that originates from a private household where it was recently uncovered. Simply a very attractive example of an 'SA-Wehrmannschaften'-related belt-buckle that is accordingly priced!
This is an attractive - and actually never before seen! - very earl-period- and presumably pre-1925, so-called: scouting- (ie. 'Pfadfinderei'- or youth-) related, brass-coloured- (ie. copper-based- and two-pieced-) belt-buckle (being a non-maker-example showing a detailed lily-flower ie. 'Lilie') that comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly used- ie. worn-), condition. The buckle is I deem clearly used and/or worn but has still maintained a typical 'copper-based'-finish, having an attractive age-patina without showing any real defaults nor damage (it has never been cleaned nor polished and shows some dust and/or minimal staining). The piece is totally void of any makers'-mark-signification (as is more often encountered). These attractive (two-pieced) youth-related belt-buckles saw only limited usage in the twenties and thirthies (ie. during the period of the so-called: 'Weimar Republik' and before the founding of the Hitler Youth ie. 'Hitlerjugend'). It should be noted that this is a genuine, early piece that is void of the (post-war!!) text ie. motto: 'Allzeit Bereit' (as can be seen on the pictures). I deem that I have priced this attractive and with certainty unusually seen youth- ie. 'Pfadfinderei'-belt-buckle accordingly!
This is an attractive, lapel-pin (ie. 'Zivilabzeichen') denoting membership within the WWI veterans-association: 'Der Stahlhelm' - Bund der Frontsoldaten (Sta)' being a maker- (ie. 'Steinhauer & Lück'-) marked example that is executed in silvered metal (ie. 'Buntmetall') and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly used- ie. worn-), condition. The badge on offer here depicts an early-pattern steelhelmet and is a so-called: 'Zivilabzeichen' of the second model (as was worn upto 1926). The badge has never been cleaned nor polished and still retains a truly nice and only slightly darkened- ie. tarnished age-patina. It is also neatly maker-marked ('Steinhauer & Lück') and shows an additional 'Ges.Gesch.' patent-pending mark as is more often encountered on these attractive SH-badges. It comes on its functional pin- ie. catch(-set-up). A similar badge is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken' lapel-pin catalogue wherein it is given a unique reference-number (4107AA) and an estimated value of 60 Eu. I deem that this decorative badge is priced according to its nicely preserved and/or untouched condition!
This is a fully matching pair of (I deem early-war period-) WH (Heeres) 'M36'-type collar-patches (ie. 'Einheitskragenspiegel') as piped in the bright-red (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for a: 'Soldat der (Sturm-)Artillerie-Truppen' (or soldier ie. NCO within an army artillery unit ie. regiment) and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'-), condition. The tabs have the desirable bright-red (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour, signifying that they were intended for a soldier (ie. NCO) within an army artillery-unit. The tabs are nicely 'pre-mounted' ie. machine-stitched on a dark-green-coloured- and/or 'smooth' linnen- (ie. not woolen!) based background as more often seen and also show a period, inventory-/price-tag attached (see pictures). The set - which comes still sewn-together in order not to get mixed-up - does show the neat 'buckram'-based backings as is more often encountered (see pictures). Simply a great occasion to acquire a very nice 'M36'-type collar-tab-pair in a desirable branchcolour ie. 'Waffenfarbe'!
