This is a neat - and actually rarely encountered! - WH (Heeres) breasteagle (ie. 'Brustadler für Mannschaften u. Unteroffiziere') being of the 'last-ditch'- (ie. later-war-period-) and entirely 'printed' pattern and that comes in an overall very nice (ie. 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'-), condition. These printed versions of the 'standard-pattern' army-type breasteagle were introduced in late 1944 ie. beginning 1945 and saw only limited usage. They are sometimes found on the - battle-dress like-model-, so-called: '1944-type' Heeres tunics. I personally have also seen this printed-type eagles being (originally!) attached to such a late-war M44-tunic. The piece on offer here comes in a 'virtually mint- ie. unissued' and comes as 'cut-out' of a larger sheet: it is a tiny bit stained and/or does show some minimal wrinkled areas (simply caused by decades of storage and/or handling over the years). Simply a truly rarely encountered WH (Heeres) breast-eagle that is impossible to upgrade!
This is a truly very attractive - and IMO issued and minimally worn - example of a so-called: 'N.S.D.A.P. Dienstauszeichnung in Silber' (ie. '2. Stufe für 15 Jahre treue Dienst') that comes together with its (unconfectioned- and never 'mounted') ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') as issued and stored for decades. The neat - and very detailed! - medal comes together with its period, unconfectioned and/or folded (ie. 15 cms. sized-) ribbon, as issued. The medal has IMO most certainly never been cleaned and retains almost all of its truly bright-coloured-, silver-toned finish: it truly has great pronounced detail and retains a fully undamaged and nicely preserved enamelled finish (without showing any damage). The award - that also retains a fair bit of its high-polished sides ie. 'hochpolierte Kanten' - simply shows almost no wear nor age but is minimally tarnished (ie. dirty), caused by years of storage and/or minimal wear. Simply one of the nicest such examples of this desirable 'N.S.D.A.P.-Dienstauszeichnung in Silber' I had on offer for quite some time!
The very attractive - and truly luxuriously styled! - silver-class wound-badge (or: 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Silber') is executed in neat and/or fairly shiny-, so-called: 'Buntmetall' and shows only minimal usage and/or wear (as can be seen on the pictures). It comes naturally mounted on its fully functional and regular-shaped pin (which is of course fully functional) and has a totally unaltered catch. The badge is most certainly never cleaned and retains most of its silver-toned finish. It only shows some minimal tarnish (it has IMO never been recently cleaned nor polished though). It is - as stated above - a nicely maker- ie. '30'-marked example that is unmistaken a quality-procuded piece that was produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller') named: 'Hauptmünzamt' based in the Austrian town of Wien (Vienna). Simply a very attractive and with certainty desirable, silver-class WB that is nowadays not that easily encountered!
The attractive lapel-pin - which has been IMO moderately used ie. worn - has a 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 (see pictures): just some regular wear ie. minimal scratches are noticable. The badge shows moreover a somewhat tarnished- (ie. somewhat stained-) finish 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-catch-set-up which is naturally still fully functional and/or present. I deem this an attractive 'N.S.D.A.P.'-membership-pin-/ie. party badge that is IMO priced according to its very nicely preserved condition!
The very attractive - and truly rarely seen! - LW-war-badge truly retains most (ie. all!) of its period-applied finish but does show a minimally tarnished- (ie. typical 'Buntmetall'- ie. 'Tombak'-like-) age-patina as is more often encountered on these high-quality-produced Luftwaffe-war-badges. The badge shows a clear makers-mark-signification (ie. 'BSW'- so-called: 'Kleeblatt'-logo) and is in all respects thus an example that can be attributed to the desirable maker: 'Brüder Schneider' based in the Austrian town of Wien (Vienna): the award shows naturally all the specific details as known for a genuine badge by this particular maker. The award shows a 'separately'- (and/or very detailed!) truly bright-golden toned eagle-device attached (by means of two firmly attached- (and unaltered!) rivets (as is visible on the back). It retains a functional catch and typical pin (-set-up). The piece is just minimally stained ie. dirty but has IMO never been cleaned: the bluish-coloured wreath and/or bright-golden-coloured eagle-device both retain a very nice albeit minimally tarnished appearance (and still retain most of their 'off-factory' high-polished sides ie. 'hochpolierte Kanten'). It should, moreover, be noted that these very attractive, 'Tombak'-based, 'Fallschirmschützen-Abzeichen' by the 'BSW'-company can easily be graded: 'very rare' and are not that easily encountered: I deem that I have priced this attractive piece according to its unmistaken rarity and/or desirability!
This is a truly attractive - and actually very rarely encountered! - 20-mm.-sized miniature of a: 'Spanienkreuz mit Schwerten in Gold' (or: Spanish cross in gold with swords) being a very attractive non-maker-marked- and/or very detailed and pronounced example that comes in a wonderfull condition. The neat and very detailed 'Halbminiatur' - which comes mounted on its functional (copper-coloured- and long-sized-) pin is a superb golden-coloured- and/or pronounced (and 'Buntmetall'-based-) specimen that is constructed in multi-pieces (just as its regular-sized counterparts). The miniature award truly retains all of its golden-toned (ie. minimally darkened-) finish and is IMO only minimally worn (but was certainly never cleaned nor polished). The attractive piece originates from a private household in Germany and was never in collectors'-hands. Simply a superb example of this rarely encountered and/or very decorative miniature-award which is IMO accordingly priced!
This is an attractive - albeit clearly used- and carefully cap-removed – example of a WH (Heeres) so-called: 'M42-pattern' cap-eagle/cocarde (ie. cap-trapezoid) as was specifically produced for usage on the (impopular) 'M-42'-model side-caps (ie. 'Schiffchen') and that comes in a clearly used- ie. cap-removed, condition. The piece - which was period confectioned- and trimmed - is executed in the so-called 'BeVo'-weave-pattern. These cap-eagles - which were as stated above specifically produced for usage on the (impopular) 'M-42'-model side-caps (ie. 'Schiffchen') - were also used on the much more popular 'M43'-model caps (ie. 'Einheitsfeldmützen'). The piece on offer here is executed in bluish-grey-coloured linnen on a field-grey-coloured (and/or also linnen-based-) background (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a nice occasion to aquire an attractive and 'BeVo'-woven, T-shaped 'M42'-cap-trapezoid for a competitive price!
The neat - and with certainty scarcely seen! - lapel-pin has IMO been only minimally used ie. worn and has a nicely preserved age-patina. It has IMO never been cleaned nor polished and comes as recently found: it is showing normal wear but is totally void of any (real) enamel-damage (see pictures): just some regular wear ie. minimal scratches are present and noticable (as can be seen on the pictures). The pin shows, moreover, a somewhat 'tarnished' silver-coloured finish as can be seen from the pictures. This example - having an approximate diameter of only 1,7 cms. - comes mounted on its regular-type-, longer-sized pin which is naturally still fully functional and/or present (as can be seen on the pictures). This example takes the format of an: 'N.S.D.A.P.'-membership-pin- ie. party-badge (or: 'Parteiabzeichen') but does not show any text. I deem that this is an attractive 'N.S.D.A.P.'-supporter- (ie. lapel-) pin that is accordingly priced!

This is a neat - and not that easily found! - zinc-based, 'Organisation Todt'-related ID-disc (ie. 'Erkennungsmarke') bearing the clearly stamped- (and 'coded'-) unit-designation that simply reads: 'Org. Todt - 156847' (and as such being a disc that was IMO used by a staff-member of the: 'Organisation Todt') and that comes in an overall nice (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. The disc - which is executed in a fine letter-type - is void of the bearers' bloodgroup-type something that is more often encountered. The piece shows some minimal age and staining but was never cleaned. Simply a neat and honest 'Organisation Todt'-related ID-disc that is not that often offered for sale!
