Attractive, officers'-pattern, so-called: RAD (ie. 'Reichsarbeitsdienst') sleeve-badge (or: 'Dienststellenabzeichen') bearing the specialist- (ie. unit-) designation: '235/3'

This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - officers'-version of a so-called: RAD (ie. 'Reichsarbeitsdienst') sleeve-badge (or: 'Dienststellen-Abzeichen') bearing the specialist- (ie. unit-) designation: '235/3' (as was presumably intended for a RAD-official holding an officers'-rank who served within the 235th district ie. 'Bezirk') and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. clearly used- ie. most certainly once tunic-attached-), condition. These attractive badges were worn on the upper-left sleeve of the mustard-coloured (officers'-type-) RAD-tunics and/or garments. The badge - which shows the red-coloured and Latin-styled '235/3'-numerals - is neatly executed in silver-coloured thread in the so-called 'flat-wire'-like, 'BeVo'-weave technique and was as such intended for an officer who served within the 235th district ie. 'Bezirk'. Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that this specimen shows a neat (fully present) interwoven makers'- ie. 'Ges.Gesch.'-patent-pending-designation (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece was carefully folded ie. trimmed (and was carefully tunic-removed) as to be expected and originates from a larger-sized grouping of RAD- and FAD-insignia that was recently found at a private-household in Germany and that I acquired for the web-site. I deem that I have priced this neat RAD-officers'-pattern 'Dienststellenabzeichen' accordingly!

This is a fully untouched and nicely preserved example of an: 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' (ie. Iron Cross 2nd Class) being a clearly marker- (ie. '55'-) marked example as was produced by the: 'J.E. Hammer & Söhne'-company based in the town of Geringswalde (ie. 'Hersteller 55') and that comes in an overall nice- (and surely issued- and/or moderately worn-), condition. The piece has never been cleaned and shows a nice (blackened- and somewhat 'satin-like'-) patina and shows an undamaged, black-coloured inner-core-section (I deem that it was issued and/or moderately worn: it shows some regular age, wear and/or minimal rust-staining. The attractive piece came together with its folded and confectioned (ie. 15 cms. long-sized) ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschitt') as issued and/or stored for decades. As stated above, has the cross great and very fine detail: it is just 'tarnished' over the years and has never been cleaned (it is just a tiny bit rust-stained ie. dusty). Simply an attractive, maker-marked 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' that was produced by the by the: 'J.E. Hammer & Söhne'-company!

Attractive - and most certainly early-period! - 'Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse' (or: Iron Cross 1st class) being a non-maker-marked example as was produced by the maker: 'Klein u. Quenzer' and that comes stored in its typical, early-pattern etui

This is a truly attractive - and I deem fairly early-war-period- and/or only moderately worn- ie. used - example of an: 'Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse' (or: Iron Cross 1st class) being a very attractive albeit non-maker-marked example as was (I deem) produced by the desirable maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'Klein u. Quenzer' and that comes stored in its typical (also early-period and luxuriously-styled) etui as issued and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. surely issued and only moderately worn-), condition. The magnetic cross has a very attractive age-patina and retains truly great detail: the black-coloured core shows no rust nor damage whatsoever: the (somewhat 'matted'- ie. satin-like-) black-painted core is nicely preserved without showing any damage (as can be seen in the pictures). The piece retains, moreover, a fair bit of its so-called: 'hochpolierte Kanten' (as can be seen on the pictures). The (flute-shaped) pin and catch (ie. set-up) are naturally unaltered and/or fully functional. The cross - which is a non-vaulted ie. non-converse-shaped example as more often - is as stated above I deem a fairly early war-period example that was produced by the desirable maker 'Klein u. Quenzer' (ie. 'Hersteller 65') as was based in the town of Idar-Oberstein a.d. Nahe. The piece came stored in its typical (also early-period!) etui as issued and/or stored for decades: also, this etui comes in an overall very nice condition and shows a white-beige-coloured- and/or velvet-based inner-section and fully preserved silver-coloured IC-symbol on its top. Simply an attractive - and scarcely seen! - fully matching, IC first-class-set that was never before in any collection and that is with certainty accordingly priced!

Attractive, 'Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse' as executed in the scarcely seen so-called: 'screw-back-version' (being an 'L/58'-marked example as was produced by the: 'Rudolf Souval'-company) that comes in its specific 'LDO'-etui

This is an attractive - albeit moderately used- and - I deem - truly worn - 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/58'-marked example as was produced by the Austrian-based: 'Rudolf Souval'-company and that comes stored in its specific 'LDO'-etui as issued and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. The cross - which is a minimally vaulted (ie. somewhat converse-shaped) example as more often - has presumably never been cleaned and retains a minimally blackened- (ie. tarnished-) age-patina and/or great pronounced detail. This example - which is an evident specimen as was produced by the: 'Rudolf Souval'-company based in the town of Wien (Vienna) - comes on its neat and (of course functional) 'screw-back'- (ie. 'an der Schraube'-) set-up. The small 'pin' (present to additionally and/or firmly attach the cross to a tunic) is naturally also present and in place (as can be seen on the pictures). This piece - which shows a 'blackened' and/or fairly 'satin-like'- ie. 'matted' inner core that shows moderate wear ie. minimal paint-loss (such as in the swastika-area - has all the specific specifications of a by: 'R.S.'-produced screw-back-IC (the makers'-code 'L/58' is stamped on the back of the dish as to be expected). The cross 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 (as can be seen on the pictures). Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that this specimen came stored in its specific 'LDO'-etui as issued and stored for decades. This etui comes in an equally nicely preserved condition and shows a black-coloured- and velvet-like (ie. smooth-linnen-based) inlay. The piece only shows a golden-toned 'LDO'-designation in the top lid but is void of any markings on the outside (as is more often the case). This neat IC-set originates from a private-household in Germany and was never before part of a collection: I deem that I have priced this attractive - and truly worn! - IC first-class accordingly!

Attractive, 3-pieced set comprising of (identical!) 'tropical-issue', WH-'roller-buckle'-straps (ie. 'Mantelriemen') all three being maker- (ie. 'MSS'- ie. 'LUX'-) marked- examples that come in a 'virtually mint- ie. unissued' condition

This is an attractive - and with certainty not that easily found! - matching set comprising of three (identical) and typical yellowish-tan-coloured so-called: WH-'roller-buckle'-straps (ie.

All three straps measure approximately 53 cms. in length each and are constructed from typical, greenish-brown-coloured woven linnen (ie. tropical-styled webbing) (as can be seen on the pictures). The pieces have been always together and were most certainly produced by the same maker (ie. 'Hersteller'). The pieces were simply never issued nor used and just show some storage-age only. The metal-parts still retain their 'anodised' (ie. greyish) colour (and are void of any real rust-damage or alike). Simply a great set that can excellently be used in any (tropical) WH-equipment set-up!

Neat, later-war-period- and 'standard-issue'-pattern, black-coloured- and/or leather-based WH helmet-strap (ie. 'Riemen für Stahlhelm') being an: 'R.Btr.Nr. 0/0267/0001'-marked example that comes in a never mounted ie. 'virtually mint' condition

This is a neat example of a later-war-period- and 'standard-issue'-pattern, two-pieced black-coloured- and/or genuine leather-based (but roughly executed) WH helmet-strap (ie. 'Riemen für Stahlhelm') an: 'R.Btr.Nr. 0/0267/0001'-marked example that comes in a never mounted ie. 'virtually mint- ie. unissued', condition. The strap does show some minimal age ie. staining but is naturally still fully functional souple: it can easily be mounted onto a helmet by means of rinsing it with some hot- ie. warm water. It bears the clearly impressed stamp that reads: an: 'R.Btr.Nr. 0/0267/0001'-marked and comes mounted with its period pair of (I deem steel-based) studs in place (as can be seen on the pictures). It should be specifically mentioned that this is a garuanteed, period example (and not a copy) that originated from a large lot of similar straps that was uncovered in France in the 70-ies. Simply a neat - and actually unusually encountered! - WH-equipment-item that can easily be graded 'scarce' and that is ideally fitted to complete any German steelhelmet!

Sporthemd') being a nicely preserved example that comes with a larger-sized (black-coloured) 'Heeres'-type, 'BeVo'-woven eagle sportshirt-device, period-attached and that comes in a moderately used- albeit still nicely preserved, condition. The shirt shows some black-inked size-markings (which are, however, hard to decypher) and also shows a stitched-in bearers'-etiket that shows the name of the recipient (a certain: 'Dacke Ulrich' or alike as can be seen on the pictures). The piece was with certainty used and worn but nevertheless retains a great shape: it comes in a wonderful and undamaged condition and is just a tiny bit wrinkled and minimally stained (mainly on its back). As stated above, does it come with a (period-attached!) larger-sized 'Heeres'-type, 'BeVo'-woven eagle-sportshirt-device. Simply an attractive 'Heeres'-type sportshirt (ie. 'Hemd o. Sporthemd') that is with certainty accordingly priced!

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 leather-based pouch (that also retains its period carrying-strap and dito black-coloured snaps). Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that the name of the bearer was neatly inked into the pouch and that reads: 'Ltn. Stirnemann' (as can be seen on the pictures). Of course, did I price this attractive example according to its overall very nice and only moderately used condition!

'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Gold') being a detailed example that comes in a most certainly issued- and/or moderately worn, condition. The (magnetic - and - I deem - steel-based) badge - which is an unmarked version as is more often encountered with this type of WBs - shows fair usage and wear and age but and has lost some of its bright-golden-coloured finish: it is, moreover, a tiny bit stained (as can be seen on the pictures). The badge, which comes naturally mounted onto its functional, regular-sized (and also magnetic) pin and that has an undamaged and/or: functional catch (ie. set-up), still retains fine 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.

The badge is most certainly never cleaned and retains a fair bit (ie. all!) of its (greyish)silver-toned finish and shows some obvious tarnish ie. staining (it has, however, I deem never been cleaned nor polished though).

Attractive, quite vaulted 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1. Klasse mit Schwerter' (being a maker- ie. '43'- ie. by: 'Julius Bauer & Söhne'-) marked specimen that is executed in silverish-coloured metal (ie. 'Buntmetall')

The naturally non-magnetic- and/or very vaulted cross shows some blacked- ie. minimally tarnished age-patina but was never cleaned nor polished: it retains, however, most (ie. all) of its typical silverish-coloured finish (as can be seen on the pictures). The cross comes naturally mounted onto its functional (straight-shaped) pin- and/or: period catch (ie. catch-set-up) which are both present and unaltered (as can be seen on the pictures).

It comes as found and stored for decades and was truly never cleaned and is still a bit stained ie. dirty (as can be seen on the pictures). I deem that the KvK 1st class award is a bit underestimated by the collectors' community: they can almost be graded equally as the IC 1st class.

The magnetic cross has a nice (and bright!) age-patina and retains truly great detail: the black-coloured core shows no rust nor damage whatsoever: the satin-like, black-coloured painted core is truly fully preserved (something that is not always the case). The cross also retains some of its 'off-factory applied' polished sides (ie. 'hochpolierte Kanten'). The back of the cross is just a tiny bit stained (but was never cleaned nor polished). The (flute-shaped) pin and catch (ie. set-up) are naturally unaltered and/or fully functional.

The etui's bottoms shows some minimal wear-marks (as can be seen on the pictures). The cross - which is a typical minimally-vaulted example as more often - is as stated above a neatly maker- (ie.

Superb, maker- (ie. '118'-) marked example of a black-class wound-badge (or: 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Schwarz') being a rare example that was produced by the Austrian maker (ie. 'Hersteller') named: 'August Menze & Sohn'

The attractive - and truly rarely found! - black-class WB does show only minimal wear and/or aging but truly retains most (ie. all!) of its original, black-coloured- and/or somewhat 'shiny'- (ie. satin-like) finish: it only shows minimal wear and was simply nicely preserved over the years. The wound-badge is as stated neatly maker-marked with the makers'-designation: '118' (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 desirable (Austrian) 'August Menze & Sohn'-company based in the town of Wien VI (ie.

This piece has never been cleaned nor polished: it shows some minimal dust and/or minimal staining as to be expected.

Superb - 'variant-pattern' - WH (Heeres) 'tropical-issued' belt-buckle (being a maker- ie. 'ES-L'-marked, '42'-dated and/or: typical green-coloured) example that comes mounted onto its greenish-coloured (and/or: 'webbing'/leather-based) tab

The truly attractive and rarely found piece - which is as mentioned above a clearly maker- (ie. 'ES-L'-) marked and/or: '42'-dated specimen - just shows some minimal age ie. dust and/or staining: it is void of any real damage and was just minimally used- and/or worn (as can be seen on the pictures). The buckle truly retains most (ie. almost all!) of its period-applied, olive-green-coloured- (and somewhat 'shiny-styled'-) paint (as can be seen on the pictures). The buckle - which truly retains pronounced detail - came mounted onto its original greenish-coloured- (and/or typical 'webbing'-fabricated- and with leather-fortified!) tab that is firmly affixed to the buckle with a single, nickle-chrome-based rivet as to be expected. These belt-buckles saw usage within the DAK (or: 'Deutsches Afrika Korps') but saw also usage in the later-war years (for example in the Balkan- and/or Mediterranean-) combat-areas. It should be noted that these army-type 'tropical-issue', 'variant-pattern'-belt-buckles can nowadays easily be graded 'scarce': even more so when they come in this very nicely preserved condition as this example on sale. I deem that I have priced this very attractive, 'tropical-issued' variant-example according to its rarity and/or desirability!

This is an attractive example of a neatly silver- (ie.

The badge on offer here is a so-called: 'Eintrittsabzeichen 1924' (or 'entry-badge') which is nicely engraved and/or dated: '9.4.24' on its back (as can be seen on the pictures). The badge - which truly shows no enamel damage whatsoever - has I deem never been cleaned nor polished and still retains a nice and minimally darkened- (ie. tarnished) age-patina. It is also neatly maker-marked with a logo ('STH') but is void of an additional makers-mark (but also bears the 'Ges.Gesch.' patent-pending mark as is more often encountered on these attractive SH-membership-badges). The back is engraved with a date: ('9.4.24') and shows a name/unit that reads: 'VI. Ns. 1197'. It naturally also comes mounted onto its functional pin- ie. catch(-set-up). A similar example is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken'-lapel-pin catalogue, wherein it is given a unique reference-number (4107N) and an estimated value of 140 Eu. I deem this is an attractive and most certainly decorative badge which I have priced according to its fully untouched and minimally tarnished condition!

These attractive badges were worn on the upper-left sleeve of the mustard-coloured (enlisted-mens'-type-) RAD-tunics and/or garments. The badge - which shows the red-coloured and Latin-styled '260/2'-numerals - is neatly woven in white- (ie. red-) coloured thread in the 'BeVo'-weave technique and was as such intended for a staff-member who served within the 260th district ie. 'Bezirk'. The piece was carefully folded ie. trimmed (and was carefully tunic-removed) as to be expected and originates from a larger-sized grouping of RAD- and FAD-insignia that was recently found at a private-household in Germany and that I acquired for the web-site. The piece is void of an interwoven makers'-designation something that is more often encountered. I deem that I have priced this RAD-EM- (ie. NCO-) pattern 'Dienststellenabzeichen' accordingly!

Attractive, officers'-pattern, so-called: RAD (ie. 'Reichsarbeitsdienst') sleeve-badge (or: 'Dienststellenabzeichen') bearing the specialist- (ie. unit-) designation: '260/1'

'Reichsarbeitsdienst') sleeve-badge (or: 'Dienststellen-Abzeichen') bearing the specialist- (ie. unit-) designation: '260/1' (as was presumably intended for a RAD official holding an officers'-rank who served within the 260th district ie. 'Bezirk') and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. clearly used- ie. most certainly once tunic-attached-), condition. These attractive badges were worn on the upper-left sleeve of the mustard-coloured (officers'-type-) RAD-tunics and/or garments. The badge - which shows the red-coloured and Latin-styled '260/1'-numerals - is neatly executed in silver-coloured thread in the so-called 'flat-wire'-like, 'BeVo'-weave technique and was as such intended for an officer who served within the 260th district ie. 'Bezirk'. The piece was carefully folded ie. trimmed (and was carefully tunic-removed) as to be expected and originates from a larger-sized grouping of RAD- and FAD-insignia that was recently found at a private-household in Germany and that I acquired for the web-site. The piece shows an interwoven makers'-designation (that reads: 'E.E.W.' or alike as is more often encountered.

Superb - and rarely encountered! - general-officers'-pattern, so-called: RAD (ie. 'Reichsarbeitsdienst') sleeve-badge (or: 'Dienststellenabzeichen') bearing the specialist- (ie. unit-) designation: '260/3'

'Reichsarbeitsdienst') sleeve-badge (or: 'Dienststellen-Abzeichen') bearing the specialist- (ie. unit-) designation: '260/3' (as was presumably intended for a RAD senior-official with a general-officers'-rank who served within ie. commanded the 260th district ie.

These attractive badges were worn on the upper-left sleeve of the mustard-coloured (officers'-type-) RAD-tunics and/or garments.

Superb, Waffen-SS field-grey-coloured, M43-pattern cap-trapezoid as specifically intended for usage on the M43-model field-caps (ie. 'Einheitsfeldmützen') and that comes in a moderately used- ie. cap-removed, condition

This is an attractive - and nowadays actually very scarcely encountered! - Waffen-SS field-grey-coloured, M43-pattern cap-trapezoid (ie. 'Mützentrapez') as was executed in 'BeVo'-weave pattern as was specifically intended for usage on the M43-model field-caps (ie. 'Einheitsfeldmützen') and that comes in a moderately worn- ie. carefully cap-removed-, condition. The piece on offer here - which is of the the pattern showing a 'single row of teeth' just shows some truly minimal age ie. staining simply caused by having been moderately used and stored as such for decades. The badge was not 'trimmed' but has been folded: as such it can naturally easily be used for attachement onto a cap (as can be seen on the pictures). The trapezoid originates from an insignia-lot that was brought to the USA by an US veteran and that remained there for years in a US-based collection. Simply an attractive, field-grey-coloured Waffen-SS cap-trapezoid that can easily be used to restore a cap or to be stored in any cloth-insignia ie. Waffen-SS collection and that is accordingly priced!

Attractive, WH (Heeres o. Waffen-SS) 'Krim'-campaign-shield that comes mounted onto its original, field-grey-coloured 'backing' and that comes in an issued-, minimally worn and/or carefully tunic-removed-, condition

This is a truly attractive example of a (presumably) non-maker-marked, (Heeres o. Waffen-SS) 'Krim'-campaign-shield that comes mounted onto its original, field-grey-coloured- and/or typical woolen-based 'backing' and that comes in a clearly issued-, moderately worn- and/or most certainly carefully tunic-removed-, condition. The shield comes naturally complete with its metal-based 'back-plate' and has all its four prongs in place: moreover, does it still retain its black-coloured- and/or (typical) paper- ie. carton-based 'backing-paper' in place (that still shows some stitching-holes and thread-remains as can be seen on the pictures). The shield - which is minimally converse-shaped as more often seen - truly retains all of its original, bright-golden-coloured- and somewhat 'matted' finish ie. bronze-like appearance in place and was never cleaned nor polished: it does show some minimal staining caused by minimal wear and/or decades of storage only. Simply a very attractive - and desirable! - 'Heeres ie. Waffen-SS'-pattern example that was surely issued and minimally worn. It should be noted that these 'almost minty' examples are quite hard to come by: it will be very hard to upgrade this specimen!
