Attractive, WWI-period so-called: 'Doppelspange' (being of the desirable 'detachable-pattern') showing resp. an: 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' and a: 'FKK 1914-18 mit Schw.' and that comes as recently found

This is a moderately used- and worn example of a WWI-period so-called: 'Doppelspange' (being of the desirable 'detachable-pattern') showing respectively an: 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' (or: iron cross second class) and a: 'Frontkämpferkreuz 1914-18 mit Schwertern' (ie.: 'Kriegsteilnehmerkreuz 1914-18 mit Schw.') and that comes as issued, moderately worn and/or recently found. The detail on the 'EKII. Klasse' is nicely preserved: it has - I deem - never been cleaned nor polished and has an attractive and/or minimally tarnished age-patina (as can be seen on the pictures). It retains nice details and shows a makers'-designation 'KO' stamped into its ring (as such it can be attributed maker: 'Königliches Münzamt Orden' as based in the town of Berlin): moreover, does it have a nicely preserved, black-finished (ie. somewhat 'satin-like'- ie. 'shiny-style') core and is void of any damage or paint-loss. The piece is just a tiny bit dusty and/or stained but was never cleaned nor polished (as can be seen on the pictures). The FKK 1914-18 is a neat example that shows a clear makers'-designation on its back (that reads: 'B.H.-L.'.) The detail is nicely preserved: it has - I deem - never been cleaned nor polished and has an attractive and minimally tarnished age-patina (as can be seen on the pictures). Both awards - which show some stained but period ribbons - come both 'mounted' onto a single, chrome-steel-based 'clasp' (with functional pin- ie. catch) as was intended for wearing this example on a 'going-out'- ie. dress-tunic or 'Waffenrock': this 'clasp' shows a stamped 'D.R.G.M.'-designation (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a neat WWI-period, 'Doppelspange' that is with certainty accordingly priced!

Rarely found - albeit clearly used and neatly maker- (ie. 'L/14'-) marked! - example of a black-class wound-badge (or: 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Schwarz') as was produced by the (unusually seen!) maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'Friedrich Orth'

The neat - and clearly issued and/or worn - black-class WB on offer here does show obvious wear and age and has retains only parts of its original, black-coloured- and/or somewhat 'shiny' finish: it was simply truly worn and was after that stored as such over the years. The badge is as stated neatly maker-marked with the super-imposed makers'-designation: 'L/14' as is clearly visible on the back of the badge (as can be seen on the pictures) signifying that it deals with a piece that was produced by the Austrian: 'Friedrich Orth'-company that was based in the town of Wien (ie. Vienna). Of course, are the (regular- ie. thin-shaped-) pin and/or (typical) catch (-set-up) fully functional and of course present. This piece has - I deem - never been recently cleaned nor polished: it shows some minimal dust and/or staining as to be expected (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply an attractive - and neatly maker-marked! - black-class WB that is missing in most collections and that is priced according to its obvious scarcity and/or desirability!

Attractive, so-called: N.S.K.K. (ie. 'National Socialistisches Kraftfahr Korps') side-cap-eagle (ie. 'Adler für Schiffchen') being a 'flat-wire-woven'-example that comes mounted onto a black-coloured background

This is an attractive example of a so-called: N.S.K.K. (ie. 'National Socialistisches Kraftfahr Korps') side-cap-eagle (ie. 'Adler für Schiffchen') as was specifically intended to be worn onto the black-coloured 'N.S.K.K.-Schiffchen o. Lagermütze') being a 'flat-wire-woven' example that comes mounted onto a black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured background and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. never used- and/or: 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'-), condition. The cap-eagle - which is neatly woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-type, 'flat-wire'-weave-technique - has the black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured branchcolour and was as such intended for the N.S.K.K.-staff that belonged to the: 'N.S.K.K. Motorgruppe Niederrhein' (as can be seen on the pictures). The trapezoid-shaped piece was never used nor cap-attached (and came as carefully 'cut-off the role'): it does show some minimal staining on its front (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply an attractive example that will be very hard to be upgraded!

Attractive - and moderately used- ie worn! - 'Panzerkampfabzeichen in Bronze' being a clearly maker- (ie. 'KWM'-) marked (and/or: typical zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based-) example as was procuced by the: 'Karl Würster'-company

This is an attractive - and moderately used- ie. worn - example of a zinc-based- (and 'solid-back'-pattern), so-called: 'Panzerkampfabzeichen in Bronze' (or: bronze-class panzer-assault badge or PAB) being a maker- (ie. 'KWM'-) marked and/or: zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-)based example as was with certainty procuced by the: 'Karl Würster'-company and that comes in a very nice and only moderately used- ie. worn, condition. The badge on offer here concerns a typical zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based specimen that retains some of its (light) golden-bronze-coloured finish: the piece has a somewhat 'darkened' ie. typical 'KWM'-like appearance. The badge has - I deem - not been cleaned nor polished and is just a bit tarnished as mentioned above. As stated above, is the piece a clearly maker-marked, 'solid-back'-example and shows various characteristics - such as for example the typical copper-based pin and/or high-modelled 'catch' which are both functional and unaltered. The piece is a typical example as produced by the: 'Karl Würster'-company based in the town of Marneukirchen: it deals with a so-called: 'KWM classic pattern piece' (as uniquely numbered with the reference-number: '1.2.5' according to the excellent reference-work entitled: 'The Panzer-Assault badge of WWII' by my Belgian friend Philippe de Bock). The piece - which is very pronounced and that has great pronounced detail! - naturally shows all the details as to be expected for a badge by this particular maker. It was recently uncovered at a private-household in Germany and was never before in collectors'-hands. Simply a very attractive and honest bronze-class, 'KWM classic pattern'-PAB that comes in an overall nice and moderately used condition: I deem that I priced it according to its untouched condition!

Neat, HJ (ie. 'Hitlerjugend') enamelled lapel-pin (ie.: 'Raute') being a bright-red-coloured- and/or truly detailed example showing an: 'RzM - M1/72'-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 - M1/72'-makers'-designation on its back (as can be noticed on the pictures). The tiny lapel-pin was most certainly never cleaned and is still 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 example that is I deem accordingly priced!

WWI-pattern, black-class wound-badge (ie.: 'Verwundeten Abzeichen in Schwarz') being a very detailed (and magnetic) example that comes in a moderately used- ie. most certainly worn, condition

This is a neat - albeit moderately used- ie. worn - example of a WWI-period, black-class wound-badge (ie. 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Schwarz') being a detailed example that comes in a most certainly issued- and/or moderately worn, condition. The (magnetic) badge - which is an unmarked version as is more often encountered with this type of WBs - shows hardly any wear and age but still retains most of its fairly glossy- (ie. somewhat shiny) black-coloured finish (as can be seen on the pictures). The badge, which comes naturally mounted onto its functional, long-sized (and I deem steel-based) 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 specimen that is priced according to its nice- and/or fully untouched, condition!

Neat, long-time out-of-print, so-called: 'Bender-Publishing'-reference-book entitled: 'Cloth insignia of the Waffen-SS' by John R. Angolia as was published in 1983

This is a desirable - and actually not that easily encountered! - long-time out-of-print so-called: 'Bender-Publishing'-reference-book entitled: 'Cloth insignia of the Waffen-SS' by John R. Angolia as was (first) published in 1983 and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used- ie. read- butt undamaged and complete), condition. In my personal opinion is this neat - and truly nicely illustrated! - reference-book still one of the best reference-guides covering the subject-matter. This reference-book (which is of the first edition) was published as stated above in 1983 and was at that time the only reference-guide available covering the subject in such in-depth manner. The medium-sized book (sized: 23 x 15 cms.) contains 480 pages and is full of very interesting information - in English language - and does contain numerous illustrations and/or photos on the various Allgemeine and Waffen-SS-related insignia. Simply a must for the serious and/or specialised collector. Nowadays a truly scarce and desirable publication which is accordingly priced!

Attractive - and with certainty scarcely seen! - bright-silver-toned, HJ- (ie.'Hitlerjugend'-) related 'tinnie' (ie. 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen') being a non-maker-marked example showing the text: 'Sportmeisterschaft 8.7.34 - Bann B20 - Allgau'

The attractive - and with certainty scarcely seen! - bright-silver toned- (albeit minimally tarnished) day-badge (ie. 'tinnie' or: 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen') is executed in silver-coloured - and I deem - tin-based metal: it shows some normal wear and/or moderate age but has never been cleaned nor polished (it is a tiny bit dirty but has maintained an attractive and as stated above minimally tarnished age-patina). The badge comes naturally mounted onto its functional pin- ie. pin/catch-set-up and shows some minimal age ie. staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The 'tinnie' is very detailed and truly retains most (ie. all!) of its silver-coloured finish (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece shows an illustration of a downward-postioned sword and mobile-type swastika-device (that is showing a HJ-symbol ie. 'Raute' in its centre) and that is showing the text: 'Sportmeisterschaft 8.7.34 - Bann B20 - Allgau' . The piece is as stated a non-marked example that is totally void of any makers'- nor patent-pending-designation (as can be seen on the pictures). It should be noted that this is one of the more difficult to encounter 'HJ-Veranstaltungsabzeichen'. Simply an attractive example of this desirable and/or with certainty sought-after- and/or fairly early-period! - HJ-related day-badge or: 'HJ-Veranstaltungsabzeichen'!

Neat - and fully matching! - early- (ie. pre-war-) period WH (Heeres), 'M36'- (ie. 'M40-) pattern rounded-style, 'cyphered', NCO-type shoulderstraps as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel u. Mitglied des Eisenbahn-Pioniere Abteilungs 4'

This is an attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of (fairly early- ie. rounded-styled), neatly 'cyphered', WH (Heeres) NCO- (ie. 'M36'- ie. 'M40'-pattern) shoulderstraps as piped in the black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured branchcolour as was intended for - and used by! - an NCO (ie. 'Feldwebel' or: sergeant who served within an armoured-trains-related, engineers'-unit ie. regiment, numbered: '4') and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used ie. worn- and/or most certainly once tunic-attached-), condition. The straps are just moderately worn and do show some minimal wear, age and/or staining but are void of any damage or alike (as can be seen on the pictures). The straps show the desirable black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured- and/or 'silk-like'-type piping and measure approximately 10,8 cms. in length each. The pieces show the 'standard'-pattern (somewhat shiny) silverish-grey-coloured, NCO-braid attached and come without tongues as found: these tongues were period 'cut-off' and the pair seems to have been used as a pair of the 'sew-in'-pattern (as can be seen on the pictures). The pair shows a pair of the neat (identical, larger-sized and/or: typical aluminium-based) so-called: 'E'-cyphers ie. 'Ziffern'), equally styled, smaller-sized '4'-numerals and two (identical, aluminium-based) pips attached denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Feldwebel' (or: sergeant). The pair is constructed from the typical darker-green-coloured wool and is with certainty a 'standard-issued'-pair. These type of shoulderstraps are of the fairly early-war-period-pattern straps and were worn in the period around 1939/1940 (and were 'worn-out' even during the rest of the war). Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that this pair came with a set of 'pebbled-styled', so-called: regimental- ie. company shoulderstrap-buttons numbered: '1' (as can be seen on the pictures). This particular pair originated from a larger cloth- ie. 'cyphered'-shoulderstrap-collection I acquired for the web-site. Simply an attractive - and with certainty desirable! - 'cyphered', 'Eisenbahn-Pioniere'-related NCO-type shoulderstrap-pair: I deem that I priced this attractive pair according to its overall nice condition!

Attractive, multi-coloured- & enamelled membership-lapel-pin as intended to signify membership within the: 'DJ' (or: 'Deutsches Jungvolk in der HJ') being a unusual 'smaller'-sized, non-maker-marked 'variant'-specimen of the 1st pattern

The attractive youth-related membership-lapel-pin (ie. 'Mitgliedsabzeichen') shows some regular wear, age and/or minimal staining but has a totally undamaged- and/or neatly enamelled (and undamaged) surface. It has never been cleaned and retains a really attractive- and only minimally tarnished age-patina. The pin - which comes mounted onto its functional and fully unaltered pin-/catch set-up - is also figured in the Heering-Hüsken 'Abzeichen'-catalogue, wherein it is given a unique reference-number (9269A). The piece on offer here is an interesting, somewhat smaller-sized 'variant'-pattern badge (ie. having a diameter of only 2 cms.). The piece is a neat example of the 1st pattern: something that is easily recognisable due to the fact that it depicts the text: 'D.J.' (instead of: D.J.V. as can be noticed on DJ-badges of the first pattern). The pin is not maker-marked on its back but shows the patent-pending-designation: 'Ges.Gesch.' (as can be seen on the pictures). I deem that this attractive - 'smaller'-sized and 'variant'-pattern - DJ-lapel-pin of the first-pattern is with certainty accordingly priced!

Stubbe - Berlin'-) marked specimen and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit truly worn- but totally undamaged-), condition. The piece was - I deem - only moderately worn and has an immaculate enamelled and black-coloured surface: it is truly void of any enamel-damage (as can be seen on the pictures). The lapel-pin just shows some regular wear and does show some minor scratches ie. wear-marks but was never denazified or alike (as can be seen on the pictures). The badge comes naturally mounted onto its functional pin and/or catch (ie. catch-set-up). A similar badge is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken' lapel-pin-catalogue wherein it is given the unique reference-number: 5615A and an estimated value of 300 Eu. The larger-sized badge on offer here has an approximate diameter of 4 cms. and was never cleaned: it shows an attractive (darker-coloured- ie. somewhat tarnished) patina on its back: moreover, does it show a: 'Ges.Gesch.'-patent-pending-designation.

The shield-shaped badge comes naturally mounted onto its functional pin- ie. catch set-up and shows some minimal age- and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The 'tinnie' is quite detailed and shows an illustration of an eagle-device and N.S.K.OV.-symbol and depicts the text: 'Frontgeist - Wehrkraft - Ehre - Friede - Arbeit - Brot': moreover, does it show the text as mentioned above. It should be noted that all 'N.S.K.O.V.-related tinnies that were intended to commemorate an event at town- ie. 'Gau'-level (such as the piece on offer here) saw much more limited usage and can easily be graded 'fairly scarce'. Of course, did I price this attractive - and with certainty not that often seen! - example accordingly!

Regiments' (or: lieutnant who served within a within a later-war-period, infantry-related, training- ie. schooling rifle-regiment) and that comes in an overall nice- (I deem surely issued- and/or moderately worn-), condition. The attractive shoulderboard is a typical 'text-book'-example of the 'Heeres'-type, 'Panzergrenadiere'-related shoulderboard and has the silverish-grey-coloured (ie. somewhat sub-dued) 'upperdeck' (making this a board that was - I deem - specifically intended for usage on a 'front-used' tunic). The board shows the desirable bright-green- (ie. 'hellgrüner'-) coloured branchcolour (and was constructed from the 'smooth-type' wool as to be expected). The board comes mounted onto its (typical smaller-sized) tongue and came with a so-called: 'screw-on'-button (ie. 'Schraubknopf') attached (as can be seen on the pictures).

'Ziffer') period-attached denoting the officers'-rank of: 'Leutnant' (ie. lieutnant). The device is just minimally stained- ie. tarnished but has preserved a fine and fairly bright- (albeit minimally darkened) age-patina (as can be seen on the pictures).

The attractive - and actually truly rarely found! - lapel-pin (ie. 'Parteiabzeichen') - which has been moderately used ie. worn - has a nicely preserved age-patina and has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished: it is showing just minimal wear but is totally void of any (enamel-) damage (as can be clearly seen on the pictures): just some regular wear ie. minimal scratches are noticable.

This example - which has a bright-red-coloured- (ie. enamelled) area - comes mounted onto its regular-styled pin- ie. pin/catch-set-up which is naturally still fully functional and/or present. Next to the clearly present makers'-designation: 'Deschler & Sohn - München 9' it also shows a patent-pending-designation that reads: 'Ges. Geschützt' (as can be seen on the pictures).

Aufklärungs'-related shoulderboard and has the silverish-grey-coloured (ie. somewhat sub-dued) 'upperdeck' (making this a board that was - I deem - specifically intended for usage on a 'front-used' tunic). The board shows the desirable golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour (and was constructed from the 'smooth-type' wool as to be expected). The board comes mounted onto its (typical smaller-sized) tongue and came with a so-called: 'screw-on'-button (ie. 'Schraubknopf') attached (as can be seen on the pictures). The board measures approximately 10 cms. in length and shows a single (larger-sized, Gothic-styled- and/or: 'Buntmetall'-based) so-called: 'A'-cypher (ie.

Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - HJ (ie.'Hitlerjugend') related 'tinnie' ie. 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen', showing the text: 'H.J. Aufmarsch - Hamburg - Einweihung der Jug.Herberge Hein Godenwind - 8. April 1934'

The silverish-golden-toned- (and partly coloured!) badge (ie. 'tinnie' or: 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen') is executed in silver-coloured and - I deem - tin-based metal: it shows some normal wear and/or moderate age but has never been cleaned nor polished (it is still a bit dirty but has maintained a nice and somewhat tarnished age-patina). The badge comes mounted onto its functional pin and shows some minimal age ie. staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The 'tinnie' is very detailed and retains all its silverish-coloured finish and/or blue- and red-coloured painted areas (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece shows an illustration of a Viking-ship with below that the text: 'H.J. Aufmarsch - Hamburg - Einweihung der Jug.Herberge Hein Godenwind - 8.

The neat - and totallly untouched! - oval-shaped badge is made out of bright-golden-coloured- (and truly nicely enamelled!) 'Buntmetall' and has an immaculate enamelled surface (no real damage whatsoever can be noticed: just some obvious wear-marks are present and/or visible: moreover, is a tiny bit dirty ie. stained). The badge - that shows the abbreviation: 'H.S.' which presumably stands for: 'Hilfsschwester'- is a maker- (ie. 'A. Stübbe'-) marked example (as more often) that is void of a: 'Ges.Gesch.'-patent-pending-designation on its back: it shows, however, an engraved (unique) serial-number that reads: '421' on its back (as can be seen on the photos). The badge is only moderately used and/or worn: it was never cleaned nor polished and comes of course mounted onto its functional- (and unaltered) pin- ie. pin/catch (-set-up). These attractive DRK-related nurses'-badges were - I deem - worn by the DRK-nurses (ie. helpers) in the period prior to 1933. Simply an attractive example that will be hard to be upgraded and that is accordingly priced!

'Feinzink'-based specimen that truly retains most of its bronze-toned finish (as can be seen on the pictures). The badge has - I deem - never been cleaned nor polished (and is still also a tiny bit dirty ie. stained- ie. tarnished as mentioned above). As stated above, is the piece a typical maker-marked example that shows various characteristics - such as for example the typical-shaped 'pin-mounting' and/or soldered catch-set-up - typically seen with PABs as produced by the: 'Frank u. Reif'-company: it deals with a so-called: 'low maker-marked Frank u. Reif-pattern' (as uniquely numbered with the reference-number: '4.2.1.' according to the excellent reference-work entitled: 'The Panzer-Assault badge of WWII' by my Belgian friend Philippe de Bock).

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

The attractive (and naturally steel-based-) belt-buckle comes in a minimally used ie. worn condition and truly retains most of its original-applied silverish-coloured- and/or sprayed finish: the piece was simply moderately used and/or worn (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece shows some minimal dirt and/or evident staining and shows some minimal staning on its back (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 (see 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, especially if one prefers such an attractive and only moderately used example as the one on offer here!

Neat - albeit slight mis-matched - pair of WH (Luftwaffe) EM-type shoulderstraps as piped in the light- ie. rust-brown- (ie. 'hell- o. kupferbrauner'-) coloured branchcolour as was intended for a: 'Soldat der LW-Nachrichten-Truppen'

This is a neat pair of WH (Luftwaffe) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps (ie. 'Schulterklappen für Mannschaften') as was piped in the light- ie. rust-brown- (ie.

The straps - which measure approximately 10 cms. in length each - have the desirable 'silk-like'-type piping attached and simply show hardly usage nor wear. The straps came naturally mounted onto their functional tongues (as can be seen on the pictures). It has been some time that I had an equally nicely preserved, enlisted-mens' 'LW-Nachrichten'-shoulderstrap-pair on offer!

This is an attractive example of an (I deem) typical later-war-period- and/or zinc-based, WH (Heeres-) ie. 'Panzer'-related ID-disc (ie. 'Erkennungsmarke') that is bearing the clearly stamped unit-designation that simply reads: 'Stm.

The attractive disc comes in an overall nice condition (and is executed in a nicely executed letter-type) and shows the clear evidence of having been used ie. worn (it shows somewhat torn-out holes and is minimally stained but never cleaned as can be seen on the pictures). The disc shows the bearers'-blood-group-type (Type 0) and comes still mounted onto its cord as worn and found. The disc was never cleaned nor polished (it is still a bit stained and/or dirty). The disc originates from a larger ID-disc collection that was compiled over many years. Simply an attractive and honest WH (Heeres-) ie. 'Panzer'-related ID-disc that is with certainty accordingly priced!

This is an attractive example of a WH (Heeres ie. 'Panzer'-) machine-embroidered, trade- ie. special-career patch (ie. 'Laufbahn- o.

The patch is neatly machine-stitched in bright-pink-coloured thread on a field-grey coloured background and is backed with a piece of black-coloured linnen (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece was clearly used and carefully tunic-removed: it does show some age, wear and/or minimal staining (and does show some minimal carton-remains on its back caused by having been glued into an album or scrapbook once). These badges were worn on the lower-right forearm of all sorts of tunics. It should be noted that these small-sized and attractive, woolen-based and 'Panzer-related' arm-badges are not that easy to encounter.

Superb - and fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) 'cyphered' officers'-type shoulderboards as piped in the desirable bright-pink branchcolour as was intended for a: 'Leutnant des Panzer-Aufklärungs-Abteilungs 4'

The truly very attractive - and neatly 'cyphered'! - WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboard-pair is piped in the neat bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour and was as such specifically intended for usage by a: a: 'Leutnant des Panzer-Aufklärungs-Abteilungs 4' (or: lieutnant who served within the army tank-reconnaissance unit numbered '4') and that comes in an overall very nice- (I deem surely issued- and/or moderately worn-), condition. The truly attractive shoulderboards are 'text-book'-examples of the 'Heeres'-type-, 'Panzer'-related shoulderboards and have the silverish-grey-coloured (ie. somewhat sub-dued) 'upperdecks' (making this a pair that was - I deem - specifically intended for usage on a 'front-used' tunic. The boards show the desirable bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour (and were constructed from the 'smooth-type' wool as to be expected). The boards never had any tongues attached and were with certainty intended as a pair of the 'sew-in'-pattern (as can be seen on the pictures). The boards measure approximately 9,5 cms. in length each and show a (fully matching) pair of larger-sized, Gothic-styled- and/or: 'Buntmetall'-based) so-called: 'A'-cyphers (ie. 'Ziffern') and a matching set of (equally golden-toned, smaller-sized- and/or also 'Buntmetall'-based) '4'-numerals period-attached denoting the officers'-rank of: 'Leutnant' (ie. lieutnant). All four devices are just minimally stained- ie. tarnished but have preserved a fine and fairly bright- (albeit minimally darkened) age-patina (as can be seen on the pictures). The pair is truly void of any real age, wear nor staining (as can be seen on the pictures). These 'standard'-pattern, officers'-type shoulderboards could be used with the regular-style officers-tunics but could naturally also be worn on the specific black-woolen 'Panzer'-type 'wrap-around'-tunics. Simply an attractive, neatly 'cyphered' WH (Heeres) shoulderboard-pair that belonged to a: 'Leutnant des Panzer-Aufklärungs-Abteilungs 4'!

Neat, WH (Heeres) 'Armwinkel' (ie: arm rank-chevron) as executed on typical, darker-green-coloured wool as was specifically intended for usage by an army-soldier with the rank of: 'Gefreiter'

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, darker-green-coloured wool as was intended for usage by a soldier with the rank of: 'Gefreiter' (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 single stripe of 'standard'-pattern- and/or: silverish-grey-coloured NCO-braid attached (as can be seen on the pictures). This particular example is, moreover, nicely 'backed' with a piece of brownish-coloured 'Buckram'-based material (something that is unusual) 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!

The buckle is as stated above neatly 'RzM M4/110'-marked and truly retains all of its silverish-coloured (and sprayed) finish but does show some (truly minimal-) signs of having been stored ie. preserved for years: the overall detail, however, is truly stunning and naturally fully present. The piece was never cleaned and still shows some dust as acquired over the years. It should be noted that 'virtually mint ie. unissued' examples of these HJ-buckles are quite difficult to encounter. This example orginates from an older belt-buckle-collection that was compiled over many years and that I recently acquired for the web-site. Simply a stunning example of a youth-related buckle that is priced according to its desirability and comparative scarcity!

The shoulderstraps - which originate from a larger cloth- ie. shoulderstrap-collection I acquired some time ago - are typical 'standard-issued'-examples that have the field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks'. They show the 'standard-pattern', silverish-coloured NCO-braid attached and were - I deem - only moderately used ie. worn: they do show wear, age and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures).

All three awards are nicely preserved examples that seem to have never been cleaned nor polished: they come in an equally minimally tarnished- ie. dusty (ie. used) condition and come naturally mounted on their period ribbons. The iron cross - which I could not check for a makers'-designation - was with certainty never cleaned and has an attractive age-patina: it retains some of its so-called: 'hochpolierte Kanten' (or: polished sides) and has a somewhat tarnished (ie. dirty) finish (as can be seen on the pictures). The cross has, however, a nicely preserved black-finished- (ie. somewhat 'satin-like'-) core: it is totally void of any paint-damage within its 'core' (as can be seen on the pictures). The 'Ost'-medal is executed in typical 'zinc-' (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal and medal retains an attractive (ie. blue-greyish-coloured-) and/or fairly 'matted' age-patina and has never been cleaned nor polished and therefore are details and/or finish still very nice and/or crisp. Most of its (as stated somewhat 'matted', satin-like-) bluish-grey-coloured finish has been very nicely preserved, giving the medal a very nice and/or detailed appearance. The loyal-service medal is a truly very nicely preserved example that seems to have never been cleaned nor polished: it comes in a minimally tarnished- ie. dusty condition and comes mounted onto its period-ribbon that shows a neat (silver-toned) eagle-device period-attached. The 'Spange' comes naturally mounted onto its functional pin- ie. catch set-up and not nicely 'backed' with a piece of cloth but comes mounted onto its metal-based backing-plate as is more often seen (as can be seen on the pictures). The 'Spange' is most certainly a period-compiled- and/or worn piece and is NOT a post-war compilation or alike: it originated from a private household and was kept as such for decades.

These attractive DRK-badges were - I deem - worn by the DRK-nurses (ie. helpers) in the period prior to 1933. Simply an attractive example that will be hard to be upgraded and that is accordingly priced!

Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), pre-war-period- ie. 'M36'-pattern (pointed-styled) and 'cyphered' NCO-type shoulderstraps as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel des Kradschützen-Abts. 8' ('Divisionseinheit der 8. Inf.-Div.')

This is a very attractive - fully matching and truly not that easily found! - pair of WH (Heeres), pre-war-period- ie. 'M36'-pattern (pointed-styled) and neatly 'cyphered' NCO-type shoulderstraps (being a pair having no branchcolour ie. piping as per regulation) as was intended for usage by a: 'Feldwebel des Kradschützen-Abts. 8' ('Divisionseinheit der 8. Inf.-Div.') (ie. being a: 'Divisionseinheit der 8. Infanterie-Division') (or: sergeant who served within the army motorcyclists-unit numbered '8' that belonged to the 8th infantry-division) and that comes in overall very nice- (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. The neat straps - which are both approximately 10,8 cms. sized in length - have the 'standard-pattern' and/or: darker-green-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks' and have as stated above no piping nor branchcolour attached: they are of the typical 'generic pattern' (as can be seen on the pictures). The shoulderstraps have the bright-silver-coloured, 'standard'- (ie. early 'dotted'-) pattern NCO-braid attached and show two matching pairs of the neat (silver-toned, 'Buntmetall'-based, Gothic-styled- and regular-sized) 'K'-cyphers, a pair of (identically-styled) '4'-numerals and two (regular-sized) pips period-attached denoting the rank ie. function of: 'Feldwebel des Kradschützen-Abts. 8' (ie. being a: 'Divisionseinheit der 8. Inf.-Div.'). The pair - that came with a pair of pebbled-styled and regular-type buttons loosely attached - comes naturally mounted onto its original tongues and does show some minimal age-, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply an attractive and pre-war-period, 'Heeres' NCO-type shoulderstrap-pair that belonged to a: 'Feldwebel des Kradschützen-Abts. 8' ('Divisionseinheit der 8. Inf.-Div.'): I deem that I have priced this attractive pair accordingly!

Very attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - HJ (ie.'Hitlerjugend') related 'tinnie' (ie. 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen'), being a maker- (ie. 'H. Wittmann'-) marked example showing the text: 'Hitler-Jugend 1923-1933 München'

The very detailed and (copper-based and hollow-pattern) golden-bronze-toned- (albeit minimally tarnished) day-badge (ie. 'tinnie' or: 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen') is executed in bright-golden-coloured and I deem copper- ie. bronze-based metal: it shows some normal wear and/or moderate age but has never been cleaned nor polished (it is still a bit dirty but has maintained a very nice and as stated above minimally tarnished age-patina). The - truly quality-produced! - badge comes naturaly mounted onto its functional pin ie. catch(set-up) and shows some minimal age ie. staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The 'tinnie' is very detailed and truly retains most of its golden-bronze-coloured finish (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece shows an illustration of a 'Reichsadler'-device above the famous 'Feldhernnhalle'-building situated in München and is showing the text: 'Und Ihr habt doch gesiegt!' and below the text: 'Hitler-Jugend 1923-1933 München'. The piece is as stated a neatly maker-marked example that shows the makers'-designation: 'H. Wittmann - München' on the back of the pin-set-up (as can be seen on the pictures). It should be noted that this is one of the more difficult to encounter 'HJ-Veranstaltungsabzeichen'. Simply an attractive example of this desirable and/or with certainty sought-after- and/or fairly early-period HJ-related so-called: 'HJ-Veranstaltungsabzeichen'!

Neat, HJ (ie. 'Hitlerjugend') enamelled lapel-pin (ie.: 'Raute') being a bright-red-coloured- and/or truly detailed example showing an: 'RzM - M1/105'-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 - M1/105'-makers'-designation on its back (as can be noticed on the pictures). The tiny lapel-pin - which does NOT show a reflecting, silver-toned 'underlay' as more often - was most certainly never cleaned and is still 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 example that is I deem accordingly priced!

Attractive, so-called: 'KdF'- ('DAF- o. Kraft durch Freude'-) related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie') as was issued to commemorate the Mediterranean-trips and depicting a scene in Venice and text: 'Mittelmeerreisen - KdF - 1938-1939'

This is an attractive - and I deem copper-based 'Buntmetall' - so-called: 'DAF/KdF'- (ie.'Deutsches Arbeits Front o. Kraft durch Freude'-) related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie') as was issued to commemorate the various Mediterranean-trips and depicting a gondola in the town of Venice and text that reads: 'Mittelmeerreisen - KdF - 1938-1939' and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit issued ie. moderately worn-), condition. The detailed and/or pronounced badge - which is executed in (greenish-painted) golden-toned metal (ie. I deem 'Buntmetall') - shows very nice detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished. The piece depicts a typical gondola in the town of Venice and text that reads: 'Mittelmeerreisen - KdF - 1938-1939'. The badge - which shows a clearly present makers'-designation stamped onto the pin/catch set-up that reads: 'Hoffstätter - Bonn' comes naturally mounted onto its (functional) pin- ie. pin/catch set-up. Simply a neat - and most certainly scarcely encountered! - 'DAF/KdF'- (ie.'Deutsches Arbeits Front o. Kraft durch Freude'-) related 'tinnie' that is accordingly priced!

Fully matching pair of WH (Luftwaffe) rust-brown-coloured, EM- (ie. NCO-) type collar-patches (ie. 'Kragenspiegel') as was intended for usage by a member within a: 'LW-Nachrichten' (ie. signals-) regiment ie. unit

The neat - and fully matching! - WH (Luftwaffe) collar-patch-pair (ie. 'Kragenspiegelsatz') is executed in the typical, light- ie. rust-brown- (ie. 'hell- o. kupferbrauner'-) coloured - and/or truly 'smooth'- (ie. 'felt-like'-type-) wool (as can be seen on the pictures). The patches were presumably issued but were simply never used- nor tunic-attached: they just show some minimal storage-age only. Both tabs show a single (identical- and/or zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based-) silver-greyish-coloured gull (ie. wing) period-attached and are both nicely 'backed' with the beige-coloured- (and/or 'buckram'-based-) material as more often encountered. It should furthermore be noted that these genuine, 'LW-Nachrichten'- (ie. signals-) collar-tabs are nowadays not that easily encountered!

Attractive, mid- (ie. later-) war-pattern, 'Waffen-SS' so-called: 'BeVo-style', EM- (ie. NCO-) pattern side-cap eagle that comes in a (presumably) used- ie. issued, condition

The attractive piece (ie. 'Schiffchenadler für Mannschaften u. Unteroffiziere der Waffen-SS') on offer here is neatly executed in so-called: 'BeVo'-weave pattern (and is executed in silver-greyish-coloured linnen on a typical black-coloured- and equally linnen-based background). As such, it can naturally easily be (re-)mounted onto a Waffen-SS side-cap (ie. 'Schiffchen') or even 'M43'-type-cap (ie. 'Einheitsfeldmütze'). As stated above, does the cap-eagle come in a minimally confectioned- albeit non-trimmed condition: it was presumably issued and possibly worn as such (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece is minimally stained (simply caused by minimal wear and years of storage). It should be noted that these original Waffen-SS-related cap-eagles are almost impossible to find and can nowadays easily be graded 'very scarce' something that - I deem - merits my asking-price!

Waffen-SS NCO-pattern collar-rank-tab ('Kragenspiegel') being a 'standard-issue'- (ie. 'RzM'-) pattern example as executed in black-coloured wool as was intended for an: 'SS-Unterscharführer'

This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - Waffen-SS NCO-pattern collar-rank-tab ('Kragenspiegel') being a 'standard-issue'- (ie. 'RzM'-) pattern example as executed in black-coloured wool as was intended for usage by an: 'SS-Unterscharführer' (ie. sergeant) and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit I deem moderately used- and/or once-tunic-removed-), condition. The tab shows the typical 'buckram'-based 'backing' (as can be seen on the pictures) and shows a greyish-coloured (ie. zinc-based- and/or smaller-sized) pip, period-attached denoting the NCOs-rank of: 'SS-Unterscharführer'. The piece was - I deem - presumably once tunic-attached (by means of hand-stitching). Without doubt a nice and scarcely seen Waffen-SS NCO-type rank-tab that was intended for usage by an: 'SS-Unterscharführer'!

The patches were presumably issued but were simply never used- nor tunic-attached: they just show some minimal storage-age only (one of the tabs shows some minimal moth-damage on its back). Both tabs show a single (identical- and/or zinc- ie.

This is an attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of mid- (ie. later-war-) period WH (Heeres) typical zinc-based skull-devices ('Totenköpfe für Panzer-Kragenspiegel') being of the seldomly-seen 'three-pronged' -pattern as were intended for usage on (amongst others) the black woolen-based 'Panzer'-collar-tabs ('Kragenspiegel'), coming in an overall very nice- (simply never mounted- ie. 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'-), condition. Both skulls have all three of their (also zink-based) prongs firmly in place: as such, they can excellenty be used to complete a pair of 'Kragenspiegel'. The skulls were never cleaned nor polished and do show some minimal age and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a nice occasion to acquire an original - and fully matching! - pair of mid- (ie. later-war-) period, 'three-pronged' 'Panzer'-skull-set for a competitive price!

Attractive - fully matching and with certainty rarely found! - bright-green-coloured- (and/or: bright-green piped!) pair of WH (Luftwaffe) collar-patches (ie. 'Kragenspiegel') as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der LW-Felddivisionen'

This is a truly attractive - fully matching and with certainty not that easily found! - typical bright-green-coloured- (and/or: bright-green-piped!) pair of WH (Luftwaffe) collar-patches (ie. 'Kragenspiegel') as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der LW-Felddivisionen' and that comes in an overall very nice- (I deem presumably issued albeit never used- nor even tunic-attached-), condition. The neat collar-tabs (ie. 'Kragenspiegelsatz für Uffz. u. Mannschaften der LW-Felddivisionen') are executed in bright-green-coloured- (smooth- ie. 'moleskin'-like-) wool and were as such intended for usage by a soldier (or even NCO) belonging to one of the the late-war-period so-called: 'Luftwaffe-Felddivisionen' (or : later-war-period, LW infantry-units ie. ground-troops). Both patches show a single (silverish-grey-coloured- and/or: zinc-based) gull attached and show a brownish-beige-coloured- and/or typical 'buckram'-based backing in place (as can be seen on the pictures). The tabs are, moreover, nicely piped with bright-green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured piping (which is executed in the neat 'silk'-like pattern) something that (I deem) most certainly signified 'Jäger'-related usage. Simply a very attractive and desirable LW 'Felddivisionen'-collar-tab-pair that is actually scarcely encountered: I deem that I have priced this scarcely seen and attractive LW-collartab-pair accordingly!

Superb - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Heeres ie. Waffen-SS) 'Kuban'-campaign-shield that comes mounted onto its original field-grey-coloured 'backing' and that comes in a presumably issued - albeit still 'virtually mint', condition

This is a truly attractive - and in this most certainly issued but I deem never worn 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 woolen-based 'backing' and that comes in a probably issued albeit still 'virtually mint'- (and with certainty never tunic-attached-), condition. The - highly detailed and/or pronounced! - shield comes naturally complete with its original metal-based 'back-plate' and still retains all four of its original prongs (being attached to the centre of the shield as more often encountered with original 'Kuban'-campaign-shields as can be seen on the pictures). The piece sill retains most (ie. all!) of its (somewhat shiny) finish and retains its (typical) black-coloured- and linnen-based 'backing-cover' (as can be seen on the pictures). This example has stunning detail and truly retains almost all of its somewhat glossy appearance (showing some darkened tarnish) and has never been cleaned nor polished: it does show some minimal staining as is visible on the pictures). It should, however, be noted that the (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 and fully untouched example is accordingly priced!
