WH (Heeres- ie. Waffen-SS) so-called: 'Kraftfahrbewährungs-Abzeichen in Bronze' (or: drivers' proficiency-badge in bronze) that comes mounted onto its piece of field-grey-coloured wool as most certainly issued- and minimally worn, condition

The neat - and most certainly very detailed! - arm-badge retains both its original prongs and also retains its period, metal-based 'back-plate' in place as is more often encountered: it was never cleaned and truly retains most (ie. all!) of its somewhat shiny ie. 'Brennlack'-like surface (as can be seen on the pictures). As stated above, was this nicely pronounced badge presumably issued and minimally worn: it was period-mounted onto a (field-grey-coloured) piece of field-grey-coloured wool and retains truly all of its neat, bronze-golden-toned- (albeit minimally tarnished) finish. The piece shows, moreover, its nicely presered 'backing-paper' (something that is not always the case). Simply an attractive example of a WH (Heeres- ie. Waffen-SS) so-called: 'Kraftfahrbewährungs-Abzeichen in Bronze'!

Superb - and scarcely encountered! - later-war period, WH (Heeres) machine-embroidered trade- and/or special career patch as intended for a: 'Nachrichtenmechaniker-Unteroffizier' (or: qualified signals-mechanic ie. NCO)

This is a very attractive - and with certainly scarcely encountered! - later-war period, WH (Heeres) machine-embroidered trade- and/or special career patch as was specfically intended for a: 'Nachrichtenmechaniker-Unteroffizier' (or: qualified signals-mechanic ie. NCO) and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. 'virtually mint-/unissued'-) condition. The patch is neatly machine-embroidered in golden-yellow linnen on a field-grey-coloured and/or woolen-based background. The patches are not maker-marked but are neatly backed with a piece of black coloured linnen (which is common for these badges). The patch shows an added silver-coloured rim (ie. border) and was as such intended for a qualified-specialist ie. 'Nachrichtenmechaniker-Unteroffizier'. It should be noted that this is actually a not that commonly-encountered 'Heeres' trade- ie. special career-patch that was only introduced as late as May 1944. The piece on offer here was simply never issued and cannot be upgraded: it shows some minimal age and/or staining simply caused by decades of storage only. Simply a nice later-war period, Heeres speciality-patch that is actually not that often offered for sale!

Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboards as piped in the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour as was intended for a: 'Hauptmann eines Infanterie-Regiments'

The attractive - and carefully tunic-removed! - shoulderboards are typical, 'text-book'-examples of the Heeres'-type, officers'-pattern shoulderboards and have the silverish-grey- (ie. somewhat 'sub-dued'-type-) 'upperdecks': they were most certainly once tunic-attached and show some minimal age and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The boards show the desirable white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour (and were constructed from the 'smooth-type'- ie. 'moleskin-type'-wool as to be expected). The boards never had any tongues attached and were clearly intended (and used!) as a pair of the 'sew-in'-pattern (as can be seen on the pictures). The boards measure approximately 11 cms. in length each and show two matching sets of (golden-bronze-toned, larger-sized- and/or: 'Buntmetall'-based) pips period-attached (as can be seen on the pictures) denoting that the officer who wore this set held the rank of: 'Hauptmann' (ie. captain) who served within an: 'Infanterie-Regiment'. Of interest is, moreover, that one of the boards still shows a period inventory-etiket from the maker that reads: 'Rula'. Taking into account the fact that this pair has the somewhat 'sub-dued'-type 'upperdecks' I deem that it was a pair that was intended to be used on a regular 'front-tunic'. Simply an attractive WH (Heeres) shoulderboard-pair that belonged to a: 'Hauptmann eines Infanterie-Regiments' and that is accordingly priced!

Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboards as piped in the bright-green- (ie. 'hellgrüner'-) coloured branchcolour as was intended for a: 'Hauptmann eines Panzer-Grenadier-Regiments'

The attractive - and actually scarcely found! - shoulderboards are typical, 'text-book'-examples of the Heeres'-type, officers'-pattern shoulderboards and have the silverish-grey- (ie. somewhat 'sub-dued'-type) 'upperdecks': they were most certainly once tunic-attached and show some minimal age and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The boards show the desirable bright-green- (ie. 'hellgrüner'-) coloured branchcolour (and were constructed from the 'smooth-type'- (ie. 'moleskin-type'-) wool as to be expected). The boards come mounted onto their (typical smaller-sized) tongues attached (as can be seen on the pictures). The boards measure approximately 10,5 cms. in length each and show two (fully) matching sets of (golden-bronze-toned, larger-sized- and/or: zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based and somewhat 'tarnished') pips period-attached (as can be seen on the pictures) denoting that the officer who wore this set held the rank of: 'Hauptmann' (ie. captain) who served within a: 'Panzer-Grenadier-Regiment'. Taking into account the fact that this pair has the somewhat 'sub-dued'-type 'upperdecks' I deem that it was a pair that was intended to be used on a regular 'front-tunic'. It should, moreover, be mentioned that these 'Panzer-Grenadiere'-related shoulderboards are actually quite hard to come by and can easily be graded 'scarce'. Simply an attractive WH (Heeres) shoulderboard-pair that belonged to a: 'Hauptmann eines Panzer-Grenadier-Regiments' and that is accordingly priced!

Neat - and not that easily encountered! - WH (Heeres) (very early- ie. pre-war-period!) white-coloured side-cap-eagle (ie. 'Adler für Schiffchen') as was executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern on a greyish- ie. bluish-green-coloured background

This is a neat - and not that easily encountered! - WH (Heeres) (very early- ie. pre-war-period!) white-coloured side-cap-eagle (ie. 'Adler für Schiffchen') as was executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern on a greyish- ie. bluish-green-coloured background and that comes in a wonderful- (ie. 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'-), condition. The cap-eagle is executed in white-coloured linnen on a typical greyish- ie. bluish-green-coloured (and also linnen-based) background and saw usage directly after the 'Reichswehr'-period (I deem around the years 1935/36): these cap-eagles were, however, worn throughout the entire war. It should be noted that especially these early-type cap-eagles are nowadays not that easily encountered: something that merits my asking-price. The piece was never mounted onto a side-cap and was naturally never pre-folded nor trimmed: it comes as 'straightly cut of the role' and simply cannot be upgraded. Simply a great occasion to acquire a superb piece of - early period! - German cap-insignia for a competitive price!

Superb, 4-pieced WH (Heeres, SS, KM etc.) non-detachable WWII-period medal-bar (ie. 'Ordenspange') showing resp. an: 'EK II. Kl.', a: KvK II. Kl. mit Schw.', an: 'Ost'-medal and a: 'Westwall'-medal

The truly attractive - and actually in this format not that easily encountered! - four-pieced, WH (Heeres, SS, KM etc.) medal-bar (ie. 'Ordenspange') showing respectively an: 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' (or: iron-cross second class), a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse mit Schwertern' (or: war-merits'-cross second class with swords), a: 'Medaille Winterschlacht im Osten 1941-42' (or: Eastern Front- ie. 'Ost'-medal) and a: 'Deutsches Schutzwall Ehrenzeichen' (aka: 'Westwall'-medal) all four awards coming in an overall very nice- (albeit moderatly used and/or worn-), condition. All four awards are nicely preserved examples that seem to have never been cleaned nor polished: they come in an equally minimally tarnished- ie. dusty condition and naturally also come 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 has lost 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 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse mit Schwertern' is a typical 'Buntmetall'-) based example. Its golden-toned, bronze-like finish and pronounced detail are still nice and bright: the piece truly retains almost all of its original (somewhat 'tarnished') finish and was never polished nor cleaned. 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 'Westwall'-medal is a typical 'Buntmetall'-based example that has a neat, minimally darkened appearance. The 'Spange' comes naturally mounted onto its functional pin- ie. catch set-up and is nicely 'backed' with a piece of beige-brown-coloured (felt-like) wool as is more often seen (as can be seen on the pictures). The medal-bar was recently found at a private-household and was never before part of a collection. The 'Spange' is most certainly a period-compiled- and/or worn piece and is NOT a post-war compilation or alike: it originated as stated before from a private household and was kept as such for decades. Simply a very attractive - and truly decorative! - four-pieced, WH-related medal-bar- ie. 'Spange' that is in my opinon accordingly priced!

Attractive - albeit moderately worn! - WH (Kriegsmarine) 'U-Bootkriegsabzeichen' being a non-maker-marked example as executed in bright-golden-toned 'Buntmetall' (ie. 'Tombak') as was produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'Schwerin - Berlin'

The atractive - and typical 'Buntmetall'- (ie. 'Tombak'-) based - naval war-badge is as stated above a non-maker-marked- and truly very detailed example that comes in a surely issued- and worn albeit overall nicely preserved, condition. It is, as such, a typical example that was produced by the desirable maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'Schwerin' based in the town of Berlin. The piece has an attractive age-patina and retains most of its period-applied golden-toned finish (and still shows some of its off-factory 'hochpolierte Kanten' ie. polished sides as can be seen on the pictures). The piece shows, moreover, extraordinary detail and comes naturally mounted onto its functional (flute-shaped- and/or golden-toned-) pin- and/or typical (silver-toned) catch(-set-up) which are both fully unaltered and of course fully functional. The badge has - I deem - never been cleaned nor polished and is still a tiny bit dirty ie. stained. Simply an attractive - and with certainty not that often seen! - 'U-Bootkriegsabzeichen' by a desirable maker that was never before in collectors'-hands and that is I deem accordingly priced!

Luxuriously-styled, 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1. Klasse ohne Schwertern' being an attractive and maker- (ie. '50'-) marked specimen that is executed in typical, silverish-coloured metal (ie. 'Buntmetall') and that comes in a wonderful condition

The very attractive - and I deem quite early- (ie. mid-) war-period - piece is executed in typical, frosted silver-coloured metal (ie. 'Buntmetall') and comes in an overall very nice- (ie. I deem never worn- ie. 'virtually mint'-), condition. The naturally non-magnetic- and/or non-vaulted cross shows some (minimal) blackened- (ie. somewhat tarnished) age-patina but was most certainly never cleaned nor polished: it retains, moreover, most (ie. all!) of its typical silverish-coloured ie. 'frosted'-like finish (as can be seen on the pictures). The cross comes naturally mounted onto its functional (somewhat thicker, straight-shaped) pin- and/or: period catch (ie. catch-set-up) which are both present and fully unaltered (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece - which shows a clear makers'-designation '50' on the back of its pin - is with certainty a piece that was produced by the Austrian maker- (ie. 'Hersteller') named: 'Karl Gschiermeister' as was based in the town of Wien (ie. Vienna). The piece was truly never cleaned and is just a tiny bit stained ie. dirty but retains as stated above all of its (off-factory) polished 'highlighted areas' (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. Simply an attractive and fairly luxuriously-executed example of a: 'KvK 1. Klasse ohne Schwertern' by the 'Karl Gschiermeister'-company that is - I deem - accordingly priced!

Attractive 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or: General Assault Badge ie. GAB) being an unmarked, zinc-based- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) and/or: 'copper-coated'-variant as was produced by the: 'Rudolf Karneth'-company

This particular example - being as stated above a non-maker-marked and bright-silver-toned- and typical zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) piece - has maintained a very attractive nice (somewhat darkened and/or typical zinc-like) age-patina and comes naturally mounted on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-toned, thin-shaped) pin (which is mounted on a typical- ie. smaller-shaped 'block-hinge'-mounting as is more often seen with pieces by this particular maker). The piece is truly very detailed and pronounced: it has, however, been used and/or worn and does show some obvious age, wear and/or staining but was never cleaned nor polished (it still retains a somewhat 'tarnished' finish as can be seen on the pictures). The piece - that retains almost all of its bright silver-toned finish - shows great pronounced detail as to be expected. The piece is a typical 'copper-coated'-variant that was produced by - and can be attributed to - the: 'Rudolf A. Karneth u. Söhne'-company based in the town of Gablonz. Simply an attractive - and only moderately used! - example that is accordingly priced!

Attractive, Iron Cross 2nd class (or: 'EK II. Klasse') being a maker- (ie. '65'-) marked example that comes together with its non-confectioned ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') as was produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'Klein & Quenzer'

The truly very attractive piece - which was presumably issued but that was simply never worn- nor mounted - came together with its nicely pre-folded- and/or non-shortened ie. unconfectioned (and approx. 29 cms. long-sized) ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt'). The cross - which shows a clear makers'-designation: '65' stamped into its ring - was with certainty never cleaned and has a very attractive and only minimally tarnished age-patina: it retains, however, most (ie. all!) of its so-called: 'hochpolierte Kanten' (or: polished sides) and has just a minimally 'tarnished' finish (as can be seen on the pictures). The cross has a very nicely preserved, black-finished (ie. clearly 'satin'-like ie 'matted'-style-) core: it is totally void of any paint-damage or alike (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece is just a tiny bit dusty and/or stained but was never cleaned nor polished. The cross is an evident specimen that was produced by the maker ie. 'Hersteller' named: 'Klein & Quenzer' as was based in the town of Idar-Oberstein a.d. N. and has truly nice and/or pronounced detail as to be expected for a cross by this desirable maker. The IC was recently found at a German private-household and was never before in collectors'-hands. Simply a very attractive, maker-marked 'EK II. Klasse' that will be hard to be upgraded!

Attractive, 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or: General Assault Badge ie. GAB) being a non-maker-marked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based: 'flat-back-variant' as was produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'Gustav Brehmer'

This is an attractive - and I deem only minimally used ie. worn - example of an: 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or: General Assault Badge ie. GAB) being a non-maker-marked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based so-called: 'flat-back-variant' that was produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'Gustav Brehmer' based in the town of Marneukirchen in Sachsen and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit minimally used ie. worn-), condition. The badge is typical zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based example that only retains some remains of its silver-coloured finish (as is more often has the finish faded away (ie. migriert): it has a typical zinc-like age-patina (as can be seen on the pictures). This particular example comes naturally mounted onto its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-coloured-) pin (which is mounted on a typical 'mounting' and/or 'welded-on'- catch as is more often seen). The piece is still very detailed and has a very pronounced appearance: the award has as stated above only minimally been used and shows some minimal wear on the obvious higher areas but was most certainly never cleaned nor polished. It originated from a private-household in Germany and was never before in collectors'-hands. Simply an attractive and honest GAB-variant that is with certainty accordingly priced!

Attractive, 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' being a non-maker-marked (and magnetic) example that comes together with its original- and once-mounted ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') as was produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'Deschler & Sohn'

The attractive piece - which was surely issued and/or minimally worn - came together with its pre-folded and/or minimally confectioned (and approx. 29 cms. long-sized-) ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt'). The cross - which is totally void of a makers'-designation as more often - was with certainty never cleaned and has a nice and/or attractive age-patina: it has, however, lost its so-called: 'hochpolierte Kanten' (or: polished sides) and has just a minimally darkened- (ie. somewhat 'blackened') finish (as can be seen on the pictures).

Neat - and unusually encountered! - WH (Heeres, Luftwaffe and/or: Waffen SS) related item: being a length of genuine, period and/or 'standard'- (ie. early-) pattern so-called: NCO-braid being of the silver-coloured (ie. 'dotted'-) pattern

I recently found a limited number of lengths of the period - and actually unusually encountered! - WH (Heeres, Luftwaffe and/or: Waffen SS), 'standard'- (ie. early-) pattern NCO-braid being of the silver-coloured (ie. 'dotted'- or: 'early'-) pattern. The lengths originated from an old tailor stock and were simply never used. All rolls measure approximately 120 cms. in length and are executed in the neat silver-toned colour (as can be clearly seen on the pictures). The rolls can naturally excellently be used to 'upgrade' ie. restore any tunic and can for example be used to match a tunic with a pair of (equally piped-) shoulderstraps. It should be noted that this is genuine, WWII-type braid, not to be confused with the post-war DDR-braid (which is as possibly known completely different in execution and/or used material). This is a hard item to find if needed! I have a limited lengths available and the price is per single roll (measuring approximately 1.20 meters). It should be noted that one roll is largly sufficient to 'upgrade' ie. restore any tunic!

'Panzerkampfabzeichen in Silber' (or: silver-class panzer-assault badge or PAB) being a non-maker-marked- and/or typical zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based, '7-wheel'-example as was (presumably) produced by the: 'Paul Meybauer'-company

This is an attractive - albeit I deem just moderately used- ie. worn - example of a so-called: 'hollow-pattern': 'Panzerkampfabzeichen in Silber' (or: silver-class panzer-assault badge or PAB) being a non-maker-marked- and/or typical zinc- (ie.

'Feinzink'-based specimen that has lost most of its silver-toned finish which has faded-away 'migriert' (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 non-maker-marked example that shows various characteristics - such as for example the long-shaped 'pin' and/or soldered catch-set-up - typically seen with PABs as produced by the: 'Paul Meybauer'-company: it deals with a so-called: 'seven wheel, second pattern hollow-zinc'-type (as uniquely numbered with the reference-number: '4.3.3.' according to the excellent reference-work entitled: 'The Panzer-Assault badge of WWII' by my Belgian friend Philippe de Bock). The badge shows a fully functional (and unaltered) pin- ie. pin/catch-set-up. The neat piece - which is very pronounced and has maintained great detail - naturally shows all the details as to be expected for a badge by this particular maker. It was found as such at a German private-household and was never before part of a collection. Simply a neat and honest, silver-class PAB that comes in an overall nice albeit moderately used ie. worn, condition!

Attractive - and not that easily encountered! - 'Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse' (ie. Iron Cross 2nd Class) being a nicely preserved (non-maker-marked and early-war-period example) as was produced by the: 'Otto Schickle'-company

This is a very nicely preserved example of an: 'Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse' (ie. Iron Cross 2nd Class) being a non-marker-marked- (and I deem fairly early-war-period) example as was produced by the: 'Otto Schickle'-company and that comes in an overall very nice- (and presumably issued- albeit hardly or even never worn nor mounted-), condition. The piece has never been cleaned and shows a nice (blackened- and somewhat 'satin-like'-) patina and shows a fully undamaged, black-coloured inner-core-section (I deem that it was issued albeit hardly worn: it shows, however, some regular storage-age ie. dust only). The attractive piece came together with its 'virtually mint'- and/or never confectioned (ie. 29 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 a bit 'tarnished' over the years and has never been cleaned (it is just a tiny bit dusty).

The cross - which is totally void of a makers'-designation as more often - was with certainty never cleaned and has a nice and/or attractive age-patina: it has, however, lost its so-called: 'hochpolierte Kanten' (or: polished sides) and has just a minimally darkened- (ie. somewhat 'blackened') finish (as can be seen on the pictures). The cross has a nicely preserved, black-finished (ie. somewhat 'satin-like'-) core: it is totally void of any real damage nor paint-loss and has been nicely preserved over the years (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece (as well as the accompanying ribbon) is just a tiny bit dusty and/or stained but was never cleaned nor polished. The cross is - I deem - an evident specimen that was produced by the desirable maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'Deschler & Sohn' as based in the town of München (ie. 'Hersteller 1'): it has very nice and/or pronounced detail as to be expected for a cross by this desirable maker. The IC was recently found at a German private household and was never before in collectors'-hands. Simply a very attractive, albeit non-maker-marked 'Deschler EK II. Klasse' that is - I deem - accordingly priced!

The very attractive - and unusally seen! - SA- (ie. 'Sturmabteilungen') related day-badge (ie.

The badge - that shows some minimal wear and/or moderate age - comes naturally mounted onto its functional pin- ie. pin/catch set-up and has I deem never been cleaned nor polished: it shows some minimal staining (as can be seen on the pictures) but is still very detailed and/or pronounced. The piece shows a clear makers'-designation (on the pin-set-up) that reads: 'Brehmer - Markneukirchen' (as can be seen on the pictures). The 'tinnie' retains most (ie. all) of its silver-greyish-coloured finish but was, however, never cleaned nor polished.

The backs of the straps (which measure 10 cms. in length as more often encountered) are executed in the black-coloured wool, as is more often observed with genuine Waffen-SS-type shoulderstraps. The pieces - which can I deem be dated around 1941/42 - show some moderate age, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very attractive and fully 'text-book', Waffen-SS-related-, EM-type 'Felgendarmerie'-shoulderstrap-pair that is priced according to its unmistaken rarity and/or desirability!

The magnetic (and typically minimally-vaulted) cross has a very attractive (somewhat darkened) age-patina and retains truly great detail: the black-coloured (ie. somewhat satin-toned) core shows no rust nor damage whatsoever: the (somewhat 'matted'- ie. satin-like) black-coloured paint in the core is nicely preserved just showing some of its copper-based underlay within the swastika-area (as can be seen on the pictures). The cross also retains a fair bit of its 'off-factory applied' polished sides (ie. 'hochpolierte Kanten'). The back of the cross is just minimally stained and dirty (but was never cleaned nor polished). The (straight-shaped) pin (that is void of a makers-designation) and typical catch (ie. set-up) are naturally unaltered and/or fully functional. The (early-period- and matching) etui comes also in a very fine and complete condition: the silver-rimmed cross that figures on the etui's top is in a very nice and totally undamaged condition whereas the beige-white-coloured- and velvet-like interior is also fully present and in place (it does show some minimal age and/or staining). The cross is - as stated above - an attractive example that was - I deem - produced by the maker: 'Wilhelm Deumer' and that was never before in a collection.

'Feinzink') and that was produced by the desirable: 'Wilhelm Deumer'-company and that comes in an overall very nice- (I deem issued- albeit moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. This example has a typical rectangular-shaped pin-set-up and typical catch (as only seen on IABs as produced by the 'Wilhelm Deumer'-company) and seems to be totally uncleaned and has still an attractive and/or somewhat 'tarnished' age-patina: most of its period-applied silver finish has been 'faded-away' over the years (as more often). The pin and/or catch (ie. set-up-) are of course fully functional and present. The piece - which originates from a private household where it was recently found - shows some moderate wear and/or staining but was with certainty never cleaned. It should be noted that IABs as produced by the 'Wilhelm Deumer'-company are quite difficult to encounter and are not often offered for sale. Simply a nice occasion to acquire a scarcely encountered 'IAB-variant' that was produced by the: 'Wilhelm Deumer'-company as based in the town of Lüdenscheid and that is priced according to its comparative rarity and/or desirability!

Superb - fully matching! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe) NCO-type shoulderstraps as executed in typical 'HBT'-type cloth and piped in the bright-yellow-coloured branchcolour as was intended for an: 'Oberfeldwebel der Flg.- o. Fallschirmjäger-Truppen'

This is a very attractive - fully matching and with certainty very scarcely seen! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe) shoulderstraps as executed in typical 'HBT'-type cloth and piped in the bright-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour as was specifically intended for an: 'Oberfeldwebel der Flieger- o. Fallschirmjäger-Truppen' (or: pilot- or paratrooper-NCO holding the rank of sergeant first-class) and that comes in an overall nice- (ie. clearly used- and/or carefully tunic-removed-), condition. The straps - which measure 10,3 cms. in length each - have the desirable 'silk-like'-type piping (and typical, 'standard-issue' LW-pattern NCO-braid) attached and do show obvious wear, age and/or staining. The straps - which show two pairs of identical, silverish-grey-toned and zinc (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based pips period-attached - came naturally mounted on their functional tongues and are neatly 'backed' with bluish-grey-coloured wool (as can be seen on the pictures). These HBT-style shoulderstraps can easily be considered 'scarce' and saw also usage by the (later-war-period-) so-called: LW 'Felddivisionen' (they were for example used on the 3/4-sized camouflaged FD-smocks). It has been some time that I had an equally nicely preserved and untouched 'HBT-styled', NCO-pair on offer!

This is a truly very attractive - with certainty rarely found and/or just minimally or even never used - example of an: 'Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse' (or: Iron Cross 2nd class) being a neatly maker- (ie. 'L/11'-) marked example as was produced by the desirable maker: 'Wilhelm Deumer' and that comes stored in its typical, darker-blue-coloured- and/or luxuriously-styled 'LDO-type'-etui (that measures: 8 x 7,2 x 1,8 cms.) as issued and/or stored for decades and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. issued- but I deem hardly ever worn- nor even mounted-), condition. The magnetic cross - that came ame together with its folded and/or non-confectioned (and approx. 29 cms. long-sized) ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') - has a very attractive age-patina and retains truly great detail: the black-coloured core is totally void of any damage: the (somewhat 'matted'- ie. satin-like-) black-painted 'core' is truly nicely preserved without showing any damage nor wear (as can be seen in the pictures). The piece retains, moreover, most of its so-called: 'hochpolierte Kanten' (as can be seen on the pictures). The ring shows the clearly present maker- (ie. 'L/11'-) maker-designation as to be expected (as can be seen on the pictures). The cross was produced by the desirable maker: 'Wilhelm Deumer' as based in the town of Lüdenscheid and came stored in its typical, darker-blue-coloured- and typical 'LDO-type', IC-second-class etui as issued and/or stored for decades: also, this etui comes in an overall nice condition and shows a yellows-beige-coloured- and/or velvet-based inner-section: it shows, moreover, the printed 'LDO'-designation in its lid (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very attractive - and rarely seen! - IC second-class-set by the: 'Wilhelm Deumer'-company that was never before in any collection and that is priced according to its unmistaken desirability and/or rarity!

Attractive - albeit single! - officers'-pattern shoulderboard (ie. 'Schulterstück') as was specifically intended for usage by a Russian volunteer holding the rank of: 'Leutnant'

The attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely found! - specific officers'-pattern shoulderboard (ie. 'Schulterstück für Offiziere der Ostvölker') as was specifically intended for usage by a Russian volunteer holding the junior-officers'-rank of: 'Leutnant' (ie. lieutnant) and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit presumably worn- and/or: carefully tunic-removed-), condition. This particular example is neatly constructed from bright-red-coloured linnen and shows the dual, golden-toned braid attached: it and comes as being moderatelty worn- ie. carefully tunic-removed condition (as can be seen of the pictures). The piece - which is quite broad-shaped and measures approximately 13,8 cms. in length - comes mounted onto its period, bright-blue-coloured tongue as issued- and worn. These shoulderboards were worn by the various 'Offiziere der Ostvölker' (such as those serving within the: 'Russian Liberation Army' or 'POA' ie. Cyrilic for 'ROA') and can easily be considered 'scarce' and come not often for sale. Too bad that it is only a single piece but I deem that I have, nevertheless, priced this attractive example accordingly!

Superb - albeit single! - EM- (ie. NCO-) pattern collar-patch (ie. 'Kragenspiegel') as executed in the 'BeVo'-weave pattern depicting the 'crossed-spears'-device (as intended for the Russian volunteers serving within the various 'Cossack'-units)

This particular example is neatly woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique and comes as being moderatelty worn- ie. carefully tunic-removed condition (as can be seen of the pictures). It shows some minimal glue-remains on its back simply caused by having been glued into an album- or scrapbook once. These - original - 'official' 'Cossack'-related collar-tabs as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo') can be easily considered 'very rare' and come not often for sale.

Attractive - and/or fully matching and actually not that easily encountered! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-pattern shoulderboards as was intended for a: 'Hauptmann der Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs-Truppen'

This is an attractive - and/or fully matching and/or actually quite scarcely encountered! - WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboards as piped in the neat golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour as was intended for - and/or with certainty worn by! - a: 'Hauptmann der Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs-Truppen' (or: captain who served within an army cavalry or reconnaisance unit and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly used-, worn- and/or carefully tunic-removed-), condition. The shoulderboards are 'text-book'-examples of the 'Heeres'-type-, 'Kavallerie'-type shoulderboards and have the greyish-silver- (ie. somewhat sub-dued-) 'upperdecks'. The boards show the desirable golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured, branchcolour (and were constructed from the 'smooth-type' wool as to be expected). The boards come mounted onto their unusually-shaped, field-grey-coloured (and with certainty period-constructed) tongues attached (as can be seen on the pictures). The boards measure approximately 10 cms. in length each and was clearly issued- and/or worn and does show moderate age, wear and/or staining as to be expected: the piping shows some clear (moth)damage as can be noticed on the pictures. The pair shows four (identical, regular-sized) golden-toned pips period-attached, denoting that the officer who wore these was a captain (ie. 'Hauptmann') who served within an: 'Aufklärungs- o. Kavallerie-Abteilung o. Regiment'. All four devices are just minimally stained- ie. tarnished but have preserved a fine and clearly tarnished age-patina. 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. The pair shows some obvious staining (and is a bit tarnished) of having been once tunic-attached. It should be mentioned that these 'Heeres'-type 'Aufklärungs o. Kavallerie'-shoulderboard-sets are actually quite hard to come by and can easily be graded 'fairly scarce': simply an attractive and clearly used pair that belonged to a: 'Hauptmann eines Aufklärungs- o. Kavallerie-Abteilungs o. Regiments'!

Luxuriously-styled 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Silber' being a non-maker-marked- and/or (early-period!) 'Buntmetall'-based example as was (presumably) produced by the desirable maker: 'Hauptmünzamt Wien'

The badge - which is non-magnetic - comes naturally mounted onto its fully functional (tin-shaped- and unaltered) pin (which is of course fully functional) and comes mounted onto its functional and pristine catch.

It is - as stated above - a non-marked example that is unmistaken an early-period- (and truly quality-procuded!) piece that was presumably produced by the Austrian-based maker (ie. Hersteller) named the: 'Hauptmünzamt Wien' (ie. Hersteller: '30') as was based in the town of Wien (ie. 'Vienna'). Simply a very attractive - and with certainty desirable! - early-war-period, silver-class WB that is accordingly priced!
