This is a truly very attractive - and in this combination not that often seen - three-pieced medal-bar (ie. 'Ordenspange') respectively depicting a: 'Polizei-Dienstauszeichnung der 3. Stufe'(or: police loyal service medal of the 3rd class as was awarded for 8 years of service within the police), a WH Austrian 'Anschluss'- (ie. occupation-) medal: '1 März 1938' (as was given to all members of the armed forces that participated in the German occupation of Austria, which started on 1 March 1938) and a: WH Czech 'Anschluss'- (ie. occupation-) medal: '1 Oktober 1938' (as was given to all members of the armed forces that participated in the German occupation of Czechoslovakia, which started on 1 October 1938) all three pieces coming in an overall very nice- (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. The pronounced 'Polizei-Dienstauszeichnung der 3. Stufe' is a detailed, bright-silver-toned- (and I deem zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-based) example that retains most of its minimally tarnished, silver-toned- and 'frosted' finish. Both 'Anschluss'-medals also retain most (ie. all) of their bright-silver- (ie. golden-bronze-) toned finish and have both nice pronounced details as to be expected. All three awards have - I deem - never been cleaned nor polished and are just a tiny bit dirty and retain truly fantastic and/or pronounced detail. They were never cleaned nor polished and come naturally mounted on their period-attached ribbons. The entire 'Spange' is neatly 'backed' with a piece of field-grey-coloured wool and comes mounted onto its functional pin- ie. catch-set-up (as can be seen on the pictures). The 'Spange' originates from a private household and was never before in collectors'-hands. Simply a very attractive example of a three-pieced 'Polizei'-related 'Ordenspange' that will hard to be upgraded!
The very attractive lapel-pin - which has only been moderately used ie. worn - has an approximate diameter of only 1,6 cms. and 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 is void of any text and also does not show any makers'- nor 'Ges.Gesch.'-patent-pending-designation. This example - which has a bright-red- ie. white-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. It should be noted that these miniature versions are quite difficult to encounter and I therefore deem that this attractive- (ie. 'variant'-pattern-) 'N.S.D.A.P.'-membership-pin ie. 'supporters' party badge is priced according to its nicely preserved and/or fully undamaged condition!
This is a truly very attractive WH (Heeres-, Luftwaffe ie. Waffen-SS) light-brown- (ie. natural-) coloured- and/or genuine-leather-based so-called: officers'-type-belt (ie. 'Zweidornschnalle für Offiziere') being a wonderfully preserved example that is approximately 105 cms. sized in length (and having a width of approximately 5 cms.) and that is totally void of a makers'-designation and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. I deem issued- albeit never used- nor worn- ie. 'virtually mint'-), condition. The piece is naturally still fully souple and of course fully functional: it just shows an impressed size-stamp '105' (as more often seen). The 'pebbled'-styled, bright-silver-toned and/or zinc-based buckle measures approximately 6,6 x 4,7 cms.: it is also void of any marking but retains all of its silverish-coloured finish (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece comes naturally complete with its (often missing!) 'Lasche' (as can be seen on the pictures). It should be noted that this naturally a genuine, WWII-period example and NOT a post-war piece or alike. Simply a very attractive, standard-issue-pattern, 'officers'-type-belt ie. 'Zweidornschnalle für Offiziere': great to use on any mannequin or equipment-set-up!
This is an attractive - and hardly- ie. used- nor worn - example of an (I deem) later- ie. mid-war-period, black-coloured, WH (Heeres, Luftwaffe, Waffen-SS etc.) 'standard-issue'- and/or: genuine leather-based belt (ie. 'Koppelriemen') being a 95 cms. sized example that is void of a makers'-designation and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. hardly used- nor worn-), condition. The belt is of the 'standard-issued' pattern having a leather 'tongue'-attached (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece was hardly used and its overall condition is still very nice and of course fully functional and/or souple. The metal- (ie. steel-) based catch retains all of its greenish- ie. field-grey-coloured finish. It should be noted that these 'standard-issue' belts are nowadays getting very hard to come by (especially those longer-sized examples as executed in blackened leather). The piece shows a small (blue-coloured) ink-stamp that reads: '261' (as can be seen on the pictures). Hard to find a more nicely preserved and/or attractive example: the belt just needs an equally nicely preserved 'Heeres' ie. 'Luftwaffe'- (or Waffen-SS) type belt-buckle to complete!
This is an attractive - and fairly 'luxuriously styled'! - etui as was intended to store an: 'Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse' (or: Iron Cross 1st class) by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller') 'Wilhelm Deumer K.G.' being an issued- and/or I deem only minimally used example that comes in an overall very nicely preserved, condition. The etui comes in a very fine and complete condition: the silver-rimmed cross that figures on the etui's-top is in very nice and totally undamaged condition whereas the black-coloured- and/or 'felt-like' interior is also present and in place (it does show some minimal age and/or staining). The etui is not maker-marked in its lid but is typical for a by 'Wilhelm Deumer'-produced IC 1st class (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very attractive and neatly preserved 'Deumer'-IC first-class etui that was never before part of a collection and that is accordingly priced!
This is an attractive - albeit moderately worn- ie. used - example of an: 'Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse' (or: Iron Cross 1st class) being a a clearly marker- (ie. '26'-) marked example as was produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'B.H. Mayers' Kunstprägeanstalt' and that comes an overall nice- (albeit moderately used ie. worn-), condition. The magnetic cross has a nice (somewhat darkened) age-patina and retains truly great detail: the black core shows an almost fully preserved surface without having any paint-damage or alike (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece retains, moreover, a fair bit of its so-called: 'hochpolierte Kanten' (or: polished sides) and is just a tiny bit tarnished by age. The (flute-shaped) pin and catch (ie. set-up) are naturally unaltered and/or fully functional. The cross - which is a non-vaulted example as more often - is as stated above a neatly maker-marked example (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply an attractive IC1 that was never before in a collection and that is accordingly priced!
The award on offer here concerns a superb, maker-marked and/or fairly shiny 'Buntmetall'- (ie. 'Tombak-') based specimen that was simply never used nor worn: it came stored in its original (albeit simplified-) black-coloured etui as produced and came still 'packed' in its period- and yellowish-coloured: 'Über- o. Umkarton'. The award itself has a very 'shiny' age-patina and still retains all of its polished sides (ie. 'hochpolierte Kanten'). Some minimal age- ie. staining is, however, visible and/or present, simply caused by decades of storage only. The piece has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished and therefore are details and/or finish still very nice and/or crisp. The etui comes in an equally nicely preserved condition: it is fully functional (and shows the printed- and/or silver-grey coloured 'KvK'-symbol on its top). The etui has a fully preserved, black-coloured (ie. velvet-like-) interior-section (see pictures). The (rarely encountered!) period- and/or yellowish-coloured: 'Über- o. Umkarton' shows the imprinted text: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1. Klasse mit Schwertern' on its top and is in an equally minty- (ie. fully undamaged and/or complete!) condition. Simply a great occasion to acquire a beautiful and virtually 'minty' and fully untouched: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1. Klasse mit Schwerter'-set for a competitive price: maybe the best such preserved example I ever had on offer!
I recently found three - fully identical and never worn- nor used! - examples of the WH (Heeres, Waffen-SS etc.) 'standard-issued'-pattern so-called: 'Kragenbinde' (or: uniform inner-collar), being all three regular-issued- and/or: clearly maker-marked examples that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. 'virtually mint'-), condition. The pieces are executed in 'greyish-green'-coloured- and/or: somewhat 'shiny'-like linnen: they are totally void of any age but do show some minimal staining and are just a tiny bit wrinkled by decades of storage only. The pieces - that retain their period-attached- and glass-based button attached - shows a clearly present ink- (ie. date- or size-) stamp on the outside (that reads amongst others: '45/46' (size) and/or: 'E43' of which the latter is I deem the date of production '1943') and measure each approximately 59 cms. in length each (as more often). Normally, all WH uniform jackets and/or tunics needed such a removable collar that could be easily removed and washed upon need. My asking-price is naturally per single specimen. Simply a nice occasion to acquire a desirable WH-equipment-item that will be impossible to be upgraded!
This is an unusal item that originated from a German soldier: a certainly Russian, WWII-period- and larger-sized, enamelled star-shaped cap-badge, showing the communist logo on a multi-coloured and/or bright enamelled 'star'-like surface and that comes in an overall nice (and I deem clearly used- ie. worn-), condition. The badge - which is quite large and has a height of approximately 3,7 cms. - has been clearly worn and shows some minimal aging (no damage whatsoever is visible however). The badge comes mounted on both its original (and copper-based) prongs (which are still functional). Simply a neat and unusual 'German'-acquired 'souvenir' that most certainly originated from the Russian campaign!
This is a truly very attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - JM- (ie. 'Jungmädel'-) ie. BDM- (ie. 'Bund Deutscher Mädel'-) related, so-called: 'Leistungsabzeichen in Silber' being a neatly maker- (ie. 'RzM M1/35'-) marked- and multi-piece constructed example that it is void of a bearers'-number on its back (as more often) and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. The badge - which originates from a private household where it was recently found - comes naturally mounted on its functional pin/catch set-up and retains a neat (and/or fully undamaged!) silver-coloured finish (which is just a bit tarnished and/or slightly dirty ie. stained as can be seen on the pictures). The detail on this rarely seen, small-sized youth-related item is simply stunning and/or pronounced. It should be noted that these neat (girl-related-) awards are very hard to encounter and can easily be graded 'rare'. Simply a very attractive example of this neat 'JM'-related sports-proficiency award: only the first such attractive youth-sports-badge I ever had on offer!
