The attractive lapel-pin - which has been IMO moderately used ie. worn - has a very nicely preserved age-patina and has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished: it is showing normal wear but is totally void of any real (enamel-) damage (as can be seen on the pictures): just some regular wear ie. minimal scratches are noticable. The badge shows moreover a somewhat tarnished- (ie. minimally stained-) finish ie. age-patina as can be seen from the pictures. This example - which has a bright-red-coloured- (ie. enamelled) area - comes mounted on its regular-styled pin- ie. pin-catch-set-up which is naturally still fully functional and/or present. I deem this an attractive and early-period- (ie. 'variant'-pattern-) 'N.S.D.A.P.'-membership-pin ie. party badge that is priced according to its nicely preserved and/or fully undamaged condition!
The very attractive piece - which was used on amongst others on the field-grey-coloured 'wrap-around' Panzer- ie. 'Sturmgeschütze'-tunics - has a 'standard-pattern'-, beige-coloured- (and/or: 'Buckram'-based-) backing as is more often encountered and does show some regular age, wear and/or moderate staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece - which has the neat 'silk-like'-type- and/or: bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured piping attached - is I deem of a mid- (ie. later-) war-period pattern that has clearly been used and/or tunic-removed (some stitching-holes and/or minimal thread-remains are still visible and/or present). The neat zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based skull retains both its prongs (and is firmly period-attached onto the tab as can be seen on the pictures). This particular example originates from a private household in Germany and was never before in collectors'-hands. These genuine 'Panzer'- ie. 'Sturmgeschütze'-type collar-insignia can easily be graded 'fairly scarce'!
This is an attractive - and with certainty not that often encountered! - golden-bronze-toned- (ie. zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based) so-called: SA- ie. ('Sturmabtelungen'-) related, commemorative-plaque (ie. 'Erinnerungs- o. nichttragbare Siegermedaille') showing a detailed illustration of an SA-sports-badge (ie. 'SA-Sportabzeichen') that is entitled: 'Kampftage der SA - Gruppe Franken - 1938' and that is showing the superimposed text: 'Dem 3. Sieger' on its back and that comes as issued and/or stored for decades. The neat - medium-sized and/or regular-weight-piece - has an approximate diameter of 6,1 cms. and has pronounced detail as to be expected. It was IMO never cleaned nor polished and has maintained a neat (somewhat frosted- and/or minimally tarnished) golden-bronze-toned age-patina (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece originates from a private household in Germany where it was recently uncovered as issued and stored for decades (see pictures). Simply an attractive and with certainty unusually encountered, SA- ie. ('Sturmabtelungen'-) related table-medal ie. 'Erinnerungs- o. nichttragbare Siegermedaille' that is accordingly priced!
This is an attractive - and neatly enamelled! - membership-pin (ie. 'Mitgliedsabzeichen') as was intended for usage by a member who served within the: 'Reichsbund der Kinderreichen Deutschlands zum Schutze der Familie' (o. 'RDK') being a bright-red-coloured example as was intended for a: 'Familienwart' and that comes in a nicely preserved- and undamaged condition. The lapel-pin is clearly maker-marked on its back with the makers'-designation (ie. logo): 'S.&L.' and also shows a so-called: 'Ges.Gesch.'-patent-pending marking (as can be seen on the pictures). The medium-sized badge - which has an approximate diameter of 2,8 cms. - has been moderately used ie. worn (as can be seen on the pictures). It has maintained a nice age-patina and has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished: it does show normal wear but has truly no enamel damage whatsoever (it still shows a somewhat tarnished, silver-coloured finish as can be seen from the pictures). This example - which has a bright-red- and/or black-coloured enamelled area - comes mounted on its regular pin- ie. catch-set-up (which is naturally still fully functional and/or present). A similar example is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken'-lapel-pin-catalogue, wherein it is given the unique reference-number (9003A) and an estimated value of 90 Eu. Simply an attractive membership lapel-pin that belonged to a member of the: 'Reichsbund der Kinderreichen Deutschlands zum Schutze der Familie' (o. 'RDK')!
This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - example of a WH (Luftwaffe) officers'-pattern, breast-eagle (ie. 'Brustadler für Offiziere') being a neatly hand-embroidered example (of the second pattern) that comes mounted on a typical greyish-blue-coloured- and/or woolen-based background and that comes in a wonderful- (I deem never tunic-attached- ie. 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'-), condition. This - with certainty 'high-quality'-produced example - is executed in multi-coloured, silverish 'braid' on a woolen- and/or greyish-blue-coloured background and has an approximate 'wingspan' of about 9 cms.: it is, moreover, backed with a piece of blcak-coloured paper (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a nice occasion to acquire an attractive - and most certainly not that easily encountered! - piece of Luftwaffe-related breast-insignia that would excellently be fitted to restore any LW officers'-type officers-tunic!
This is an attractive - and actually not that easily ie. truly scarcely encountered! - luxuriously styled, HJ-/DAF- (ie. 'Hitlerjugend'- ie. 'Deutsches Arbeitsfront'-) related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie' or 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen') that was issued to commemorate a specific youth- (ie. DAF-) rally ie. gathering named the: 'Reichsberufs-Wettkampf der Deutschen Jugend' that was held in the year 1934 and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit surely issued ie. moderately worn-), condition. The very detailed and/or pronounced badge - which is executed in golden-bronze- (ie. copper-) toned metal - truly shows extraordinary detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished. The (non-maker-marked-) piece shows a so-called: 'HJ-Raute' with above that the year-designation (1934) and: 'HJ'- (and/or: 'DAF'-) text and is surrounded by the text: 'Reichsberufs-Wettkampf der Deutschen Jugend'. The badge comes naturally mounted on its (functional) pin-/catch set-up. The piece shows a makers-designation on its back that reads: 'Reichsverband 52 Pforzheim' (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply an attractive, youth-related 'tinnie' ie. 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen' that is not that often offered for sale!
This is an attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - 'variant'-pattern and/or neatly maker- (ie. 'L/24'-) marked, silver-class wound-badge (or: 'Verwundeten Abzeichen in Silber') as was produced by the: 'Fritz Zimmermann'-company and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately worn- ie. used-), condition. The badge - which is executed in silvered zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink') - shows regular age and/or wear and has a correct - and/or fully functional - pin- ie. catch set-up as to be expected. The badge has never been cleaned and shows some normal - albeit minimal darkened - tarnish: most of its silverish-finish has been nicely preserved (as can be seen on the pictures). The badge is maker-marked with the makers'-designation: 'L/24' on its back signifying that it deals with a typical WB as was produced by the 'Fritz Zimmermann' (aka: 'FZZ'-) company as based in the town of Stuttgart. This type of WB is very easily identified due to its 'semi-hollow' back and fairly light-weight. In any case a desirable and actually quite rarely encountered silver-class WB that is not that often offered for sale!
The truly very attractive award - being of the 'light-weight'- (ie. aluminium-based) version - truly retains gorgeous details and has a great ie. only minimally darkened- ie. tarnished age-patina: it retains all of its fairly 'glossy'- and/or: golden-bronze-toned finish and has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished: it can easily be graded 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'. The piece comes mounted on its period-shortened piece (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') of cornflower-blue coloured ribbon (which is neatly folded and measures approximately 9,2 cms. in length). The ribbon still retains its copper-toned 'clip' (mounted for easily wearing the piece on a tunic). Simply a very attractive example of this: 'RAD-Dienstauszeichnung 4. Stufe für Männer' that is with certainty accordingly priced!
This is an attractive - and only minimally used! - example of a mid- (ie. early-) war-period, WH (Heeres ie. Luftwaffe) 'tropical-issued'- and/or partly 'web-based' belt (ie. 'Koppelriemen') as was executed in typical greenish-coloured and/or woven linnen (ie. webbing) and having a leather-based tongue, being a neat example that is approximately 105 cms. sized and that comes in an overall nice- (ie. only minimally used- ie. worn-), condition. The belt is totally void of a makers'-designation and just shows a length-stamp that reads: '105' (as can be seen on the pictures). The belts' tongue is as stated fabricated in typical, brownish- ie. natural-coloured leather. The piece was surely issued and only minimally used but its overall condition is still very nice and of course fully functional. The metal-based catch retains all of its greenish- (ie. field-grey-) coloured finish. It should be noted that these 'webbing'-based belts are nowadays getting very hard to come by (especially those longer-sized examples as executed in webbing). Hard to find a more nicely preserved and/or attractive example: the belt just needs an equally nicely preserved 'Heeres' ie. 'Luftwaffe'-type belt-buckle to complete it!
This is an attractive, WWII-period, so-called: 'Deutsches Reiterabzeichen der 2. Klasse (ie. 'in Silber') being a neat maker- (ie. 'L.Chr. Lauer'-) marked example that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. The neat and detailed award - which comes on its functional pin- and/or catch (set-up) - truly retains most of its greyish-silver-coloured finish and is a typical, pronounced specimen as was produced by the: 'L.Chr. Lauer' company based in Nürnberg and/or Berlin (something that is of course clearly shown on the back of the badge). The badge also shows a patent-pending marking (that reads: 'Gesetzlich Geschützt' as can be seen of the pictures). The badge retains most of its greyish-silver-coloured finish and is only moderately worn (but was with certainly never cleaned nor polished). The piece is naturally a WWII-era badge and not a 1957-version (something that is easily noticed by the presence of the capital 'R'-character as visible on the bottom of the badge). Simply a neat - and actually seldomly seen! - 'Deutsches Reiterabzeichen der 2. Klasse (ie. 'in Silber')!
