'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based so-called 'hollow-back version' by a (by me) unidentified maker This is an attractive - and IMO moderately used ie. worn - example of an: 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based so-called 'hollow-back-version' by a (by me) unidentified maker, in overall very nice, and IMO only moderately used ie. worn, condition. The badge is typical, non-magnetic-, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based example that retains most of its typical greyish-silver-coloured finish: it has a typical zinc-coloured 'age-patina'. This particular example comes naturally mounted on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-coloured-) pin (which is mounted on a typical 'mounting' and shows a 'welded-on'- and/or flat-shaped catch as is more often seen). The piece is still very detailed and has a very pronounced appearance: the award has IMO been used and shows some regular wear on the obvious higher areas: it is moreover a tiny dirty ie. stained (see pictures) but was most certainly never cleaned nor polished. It originated from a private household in Germany and was never before in collector-hands. I deem that this piece can most certainly be further attributed to a maker if wanted or deemed needed. In any case a very attractive and honest GAB that is IMO accordingly priced!

'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc-based- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) semi-hollow-back-version by the: 'Rudolf Karneth' company This particular example - being as stated a - non maker-marked- zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) piece as always with pieces by this maker - has maintained a nice (and somewhat brownish-) age-patina and comes naturally mounted on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or copper-toned-) pin (which is mounted on a typical- ie. 'ball-hinge'-mounting as is more often seen). The piece is very detailed and pronounced: it has IMO been moderately used and shows some wear on the obvious higher areas: it is moreover quite dirty but was IMO never cleaned. The piece is IMO never polished and does still show great pronounced detail. I deem that this is a typical piece that was produced by - and can be attributed to - the: 'Rudolf A. Karneth u. Söhne' company based in the town of Gablonz.
'BeVo'-type armshield (of the second pattern-) entitled: 'Bergkaukasien', being a piece as intended for a volunteer who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. within the 'Berg- o. Nord-Kaukasisches Legion' This particular armshield being of the second pattern and showing a blue-coloured shield with in its centre a three-headed horse symbol with above the (German) text: 'Bergkaukasien' - is neatly woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique and comes as being straightly cut from the roll. The assigned region 'Bergkaukasien' included most of the mountain-rich areas in the Russian Causasus and was at the time known as the: 'Generalkommissariat für die Gebiete der Bergvölker'. These - original - 'official' arm-shields as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo'!) can be easily considered 'scarce'. I deem that I have priced this (virtually mint-/unissued-) example accordingly!
'BeVo'-type armshield entitled: 'Aserbaidschan', being a piece as intended for a volunteer who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. within the 'Aserbaidschanisches Legion' This particular armshield - showing a blue-, red- and green-coloured shield with above the (German) text: 'Aserbaidschan' - is neatly woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique and comes as being straightly cut from the roll. These - original - 'official' arm-shields as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo'!) can be easily considered 'scarce'. I deem that I have priced this (virtually mint-/unissued-) example accordingly!

These - original - 'official' arm-shields as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo'!) can be easily considered 'scarce'. I deem that I have priced this (virtually mint-/unissued-) example accordingly!
'BeVo'-type armshield entitled: 'Aserbaidschan', being a piece as intended for a volunteer who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. within the 'Aserbaidschanisches Legion' This particular armshield - showing a blue-, red- and green-coloured shield with above the (German) text: 'Aserbaidschan' - is neatly woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique and comes as being straightly cut from the roll. These - original - 'official' arm-shields as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo'!) can be easily considered 'scarce'. I deem that I have priced this (virtually mint-/unissued-) example accordingly!
'BeVo'-type armshield entitled: 'Georgien', being a piece as intended for a volunteer who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. within the 'Georgischer Legion' This particular armshield - showing a red- and/or black- ie. white-coloured shield with above the (German) text: 'Georgien'- is neatly woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique and comes as being straightly cut from the roll. These - original - 'official' arm-shields as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo'!) can be easily considered 'scarce'. I deem that I have priced this (virtually mint-/unissued-) example accordingly!
'BeVo'-type armshield entitled: 'Georgien', being a piece as intended for a volunteer who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. within the 'Georgischer Legion' This particular armshield - showing a red- and/or black- ie. white-coloured shield with above the (German) text: 'Georgien'- is neatly woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique and comes as being straightly cut from the roll. These - original - 'official' arm-shields as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo'!) can be easily considered 'scarce'. I deem that I have priced this (virtually mint-/unissued-) example accordingly!
'BeVo'-type armshield entitled: 'Georgien', being a piece as intended for a volunteer who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. within the 'Georgischer Legion' This particular armshield - showing a red- and/or black- ie. white-coloured shield with above the (German) text: 'Georgien'- is neatly woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique and comes as being straightly cut from the roll. These - original - 'official' arm-shields as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo'!) can be easily considered 'scarce'. I deem that I have priced this (virtually mint-/unissued-) example accordingly!
'BeVo'-type armshield entitled: 'Hrvatska', being a piece as intended for a volunteer who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. within the 'Kroatisches Legion' These shields - showing a red/white 'checkered field' - existed also in German spelling (having the wording: 'Kroatien') and in Croatian language 'Hrvatska', being the Serbo-Croat spelling for Croatia (which is this specimen on offer). The shield is neatly woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique and comes as being straightly cut from the roll. These - original - 'official' arm-shields as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo'!) are considered 'fairly rare'.
'BeVo'-type armshield entitled: 'Idel-Ural', being a piece as intended for a volunteer who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. within the 'Volga-Tartar Legion' This particular armshield is showing a blue- ie. green coloured shield with in its centre a crossed knife and/or arrow symbol with above the (German) text: 'Idel-Ural' - is neatly woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique and comes as being straightly cut from the roll. The piece shows a neat interwoven 'BeVo-Wuppertal' producers-mark on the bottom as is sometimes encountered (see pictures). These - original - 'official' arm-shields as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo'!) can be easily considered 'scarce'. I deem that I have priced this (virtually mint-/unissued-) example accordingly!
'Deutsche Bronzene Verdienstmedaille' (or: bronze class merit medal of the German Eagle-order) being a maker- (ie. '30'-) marked piece as was produced by the: 'Hauptmünzamt - Wien' The award is an attractive example that was (IMO) executed in golden-bronze-toned zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink'). It comes mounted on its typical bright-red coloured and/or white-striped ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') that still retains its (copper-based-) clip intended for wearing it on a tunic or uniform. The award is clearly maker- (ie. '30'-) marked in the ring denoting that it is a piece that was produced by the maker: 'Haupt- münzamt' based in the town of Vienna (ie. Wien). The piece is of the version without swords that shows the text: 'Deutsche Verdienst Medaille' on its back (which is executed in so-called: 'Blockschrift' - see pictures). The piece is very detailed and/or pronounced and was with certainty never cleaned nor polished: it is still a tiny bit stained but has a great, somewhat tarnished 'age-patina'. It should be noted that these 'Deutsche Bronzene Verdienstmedaillen' can easily be graded 'scarce'.
'Ehrenblatt des Deutschen Heeres', dated: 17 February 1944 - nice, albeit used condtion! This is a nice and not often encountered paper-item: an A-4-sized (when folded) so-called: 'Ehrenblatt des Deutschen Heeres', dated: 17 February 1944, in nice, albeit used condtion. The paper-item - which shows two tears that have been repaired with acid-free tape - is somewhat yellowed and stained due to age and bears the names of 33 (!) soldiers that have been listed in the 'Ehrenblatt' and could consequently wear the rare 'Ehrenblattspange' on their uniform: all of them had shown extraordinary bravery at the various fronts. Some of the listed soldiers were also bearer of the KC ('Ritterkreuz'). The document - sized: 30 x 21,5 cms. - is folded into two parts and also bears a (facsimile) signature of the 'Führer Adolf Hitler' and shows a large-sized eagle on the front, as is common for these documents. A nice and fairly unusual item!
'Ehrenkreuz des Weltkrieges mit Schwertern des Sächsischen Militär Vereins Bund' (ie. 'S.M.V.B.') that comes together with its original ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') The attractive and bright-golden-toned medal - which is IMO executed in bronze-based metal - shows the shield of the Saschen-province on its front, shows a pair of seperately attached swords and has the abbreviation 'ESW' and/or date: '1914' on its back. These medals were institute in the twenties by the WWI-veteran-organisation: 'S.M.V.B.' and were issued at a limited scale from 1920 to 1922. The piece - which is never cleaned nor polished - comes together with its original, bluish-green-coloured and/or white-striped ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') which is 17 cms. long-sized and that shows some wear, age ie. staining.
'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') ie. 'BDM' (or: 'Bund Deutscher Mädel') district-triangle entitled: 'Mitte Sachsen' This is a 'female'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in white-coloured linnen on a black-coloured (and also linnen-based-) background. This example is clearly used and/or carefully tunic-removed (it is a tiny bit stained and/or minimally dirty) and misses its (once most certainly present) 'RzM-etiket'. This is one of the more scarcely encountered 'BDM'-district-triangles.
'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') ie. 'BDM' (or: 'Bund Deutscher Mädel') district-triangle entitled: 'Ost Generalgouvernement', that comes with its originally attached, paper-based 'RzM'-etiket This is a 'female'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in white-coloured linnen on a black coloured background. This one comes as stated with its originally attached 'RzM-etiket' ('A-Stück') still in place and is in a virtually mint-/unissued condition. It should be noted that the 'foreign' HJ district-triangles rank amongst the most difficult youth-triangles to encounter or to find. This particular 'BDM'-piece can easily be graded: 'very rare'.
'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') ie. 'BDM' (or: 'Bund Deutscher Mädel') district-triangle entitled: 'Ost Wartheland' This is a 'female'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in white-coloured linnen on a black coloured background. This one comes as stated without an attached 'RzM-etiket' (I deem that it never had one) and is IMO minimally worn (some stitching- ie thread-remains are still visible and/or present). It should be noted that the 'foreign' ie. exotic HJ/BDM district-triangles rank amongst the most difficult and rare youth-triangles to encounter or to find. This particular 'BDM'-piece can easily be graded: 'extremely rare'. It should be noted that this is the first - and most likely only - piece I ever had on offer!
'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') ie. 'BDM' (or: 'Bund Deutscher Mädel') district-triangle entitled: 'Südost Wien', that comes with its originally attached, paper-based 'RzM'-etiket This is a 'female'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in white-coloured linnen on a black-coloured background. This one comes as stated with its originally attached 'RzM-etiket' ('A-Stück') still in place and is in a virtually mint-/unissued condition. It should be noted that the 'Austrian'-based HJ district-triangles rank amongst the more difficult youth-triangles to encounter. This particular 'BDM'-piece can easily be graded: 'scarce'.
'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber', being an unmarked (so-called:'pillow-crimped'-) example as executed in silverish-coloured, zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink') This example is a non maker-marked award: it has a 'typical' crimped catch and/or hinge set-up as is more often seen. To date the maker of these attractive 'pillow-crimped' IABs has not been surfaced yet. The badge seems IMO to be totally uncleaned and has a still a very nice and truly shiny silver-coloured age-patina. The pin and/or catch (ie. set-up-) are of course fully functional and/or present. The piece - which originates from a private household were it was recently found - shows hardly any wear but is a tiny bit stained (see pictures): it was however never cleaned nor polished.
'Nahkampfspange in Bronze' (or bronze close-combat clasp ie. CCC), being a neatly maker- (ie. 'JFS'-) marked- and/or fairly converse version The piece - which has a very detailed and/or pronounced appearance - is as stated a neatly maker-marked version bearing the makers'-signification (ie. logo): 'JFS', denoting that this is a piece that was produced by the: 'Joseph Feix u. Söhne'-company based in the town of Gablonz. The 'Spange' is as stated neatly converse-shaped and shows a flute-shaped - and/or copper-toned - pin (and or typical catch-/catch-set-up), both which are of course still functional and/or unaltered nor repaired. The clasp - which is naturally of unquestionable originality - retains most of its original fairly dark-coloured, bronze-toned finish and IMO never been cleaned nor polished: it shows some regular age- ie. minimal wear-marks as to be expected. The 'crimped' (neatly bluish-coloured- ie. blackened-) metal back-plate is naturally also present and in place (but does show a few scratches as probably period-done by the recipient - see pictures). The piece was found as such at a private household and was never before in a collection.
'Nahkampfspange in Bronze' (or bronze close-combat clasp ie. CCC), being a neatly maker- (ie. 'JFS'-) marked- and/or fairly converse version The piece - which has a very detailed and/or pronounced appearance - is as stated a neatly maker-marked version bearing the makers'-signification (ie. logo): 'JFS', denoting that this is a piece that was produced by the: 'Joseph Feix u. Söhne'-company based in the town of Gablonz. The 'Spange' is as stated neatly converse-shaped and shows a flute-shaped - and/or copper-toned - pin (and or typical catch-/catch-set-up), both which are of course still functional and/or unaltered nor repaired. The clasp - which is naturally of unquestionable originality - retains most of its original fairly dark-coloured, bronze-toned finish (which has become a bit faded over the years) and IMO never been cleaned nor polished: it shows some regular age- ie. minimal wear-marks as to be expected. The 'crimped' (neatly bluish-coloured- ie. blackened-) metal back-plate is naturally also present and in place - see pictures). The piece was found as such at a private household and was never before in a collection.
'Nahkampfspange in Bronze' (or bronze close-combat clasp ie. CCC), being a neatly maker- (ie.: 'C.F. Juncker'-) marked- and/or non-vaulted example This 'Spange' is a non-converse-shaped version- (as to be expected with CCCs by the maker: 'C.F. Juncker'-company based in Berlin) and shows a neat flute-shaped - and/or copper-toned - pin (and or typical catch-/catch-set-up), both which are of course still functional (and/or totally undamaged). The attractive clasp - which is naturally of unquestionable originality and which is only moderately used ie. worn - retains most of its original-applied, golden-bronze-toned finish (ie. 'Brennlack') and was IMO never cleaned nor polished: it shows some regular age- ie. wear-marks as to be expected. Moreover is it still quite dirty (but was never cleaned nor polished). The 'crimped' metal-based back-plate is naturally also present and is firmly in place. The piece was recently found as such at a private household and was never before in a collection. It should be noted that CCCs as produced by the: 'C.F. Juncker'-company are very desirable and can easily be graded 'fairly scarce'.
'Postschutz' arm-badge ie. arm-eagle being a piece as executed in the 'BeVo'-weave-pattern The attractive arm-badge - which is executed in light-grey-coloured linnen on a greyish-coloured background and which is executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave-pattern - was clearly used and/or carefully tunic-removed: it was neatly trimmed- and/or pre-folded and comes as carefully tunic-removed. It does show some obvious age- ie. minimal staining and still shows the signs of having been once tunic-attached (see pictures). The 'Postschutz'-organisation (which can literally be translated as 'postal security-service') is one of the smaller-sized TR-era organisations that fell under the jurisdiction of the SS and about which little is known to date: its 'political' i.e. police-related nature is also underlined by the left-facing eagle. I have seen these also having a bright-orange-coloured (interwoven) border, something that can be looked-up in the archive-section of the web-site: this example does not show this border (something that might deal with the function ie. rank of the official). These 'Postschutz'-arm-eagles can easily be graded 'very rare'.
'Reichsarbeitsdienst der weiblichen Jugend' (or: RADwJ ie.: Womens Labor Service) so-called: 'Erinnerungsbrosche' (or commemorative brooch), being a maker- (ie. 'An.G.'-) marked example as was executed in zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink') The neat brooch still retains stunning detail and comes of course mounted on its functional pin and/or catch (set-up). The brooch - which is a regular-weight version - is as stated a non-maker-marked example that was IMO only minimally worn: it was never cleaned nor polished and retains a nice (typical zinc-based-) age-patina, showing some normal age, wear and/or staining. I deem that this attractive RADwJ-badge is accordingly priced!
'Reichsarbeitsdienst' (ie. RAD) men's 'Dienstauszeichnung 4. Stufe', as intended for 4 years loyal-service, that comes mounted on its period piece of ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') The award - being of the 'light-weight'- ie. aluminium-based- version - truly retains gorgeous details and has a great ie. somewhat darkened age-patina: it retains all of its 'glossy' golden-bronze-toned finish and has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished. 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). This particular award can easily be graded: 'mint-/unissued'.
'Standard'-issued, WH (Heeres) colourfull 'attachment' ie. annex to the handbook: 'Reibert' - Der Dienstunterricht im Heere' - 'Ausgabe für den Gewehr- und l. MG.Schützen' (9th edition) The soft-covered 'attachment' (ie. 'Anlage') is a 8-paged annex to the 'standard'-issued WH (Heeres) handbook entitled: 'Reibert' - Der Dienstunterricht im Heere' - 'Ausgabe für den Gewehr- und l. MG.Schützen'. This example - having a greenish-coloured (soft-)cover - was clearly used and/or read and shows some obvious wear and age. It includes various detailed and coloured pages showing the various uniforms and/or decorations (see pictures). I have never seen a similar example!
'Standard'-type, woolen-based, WH (Luftwaffe) breasteagle - mint, unissued condition! I recently found 5 identical and mint examples of the 'standard'-type, woolen-based, WH (Luftwaffe) breasteagle, in stonemint, unissued condition. The pieces are executed in greyish/white linnen on a blue woolen background and are 'backed' with black-coloured linnen (as usual). The eagles have great detail and can naturally easily be used to restore a Luftwaffe tunic or 'Fliegerbluse'. The price is naturally per piece. Impossible to upgrade these!
'Standard-issue'-type, neatly ('BeVo'-) woven-, WH (Luftwaffe) enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCO-) type breast-eagle The piece is as to be expected executed in greyish-/white-coloured linnen and is executed on a typical, darker-blue-coloured- and/or linnen-based 'background': as such is it a typical example that originated from the 'BeVo'-company situated in Wuppertal. The piece is not 'backed' (as is more often encountered) and can easily be graded 'mint-/unissued': it comes as straightly cut-of the role'. The eagle has truly great, pronounced detail and can naturally easily be used to restore any Luftwaffe tunic ie. 'Fliegerbluse'. It should be noted that these attractive, WH (Luftwaffe) enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCO-) type breast-eagles are not that easily encountered and can easily be graded 'fairly scarce'.
'Standard-issue'-type, WH 'Fettbuchse' (ie. fat-container), as executed in black-coloured 'Bakelite' The neat piece - which is IMO only moderately used- and which is totally undamaged - is neatly maker-marked with a makers'-logo (circle with numbers - see pictures) on the back and/or inside as is usually encountered. These containers rank among the 'basic' equipment of any front-soldier and were stored in the bread-bag. This example is in an overall very nice condition and is as stated void of any damage and that only shows some minimal wear: great to complete any WH equipment set-up ie. bread-bag contents!
'Standard-issue'-type, WH 'Fettbuchse' (ie. fat-container), as executed in black-coloured so-called: 'Bakelite' The neat piece - which is IMO only moderately used- and which is totally undamaged - is neatly maker-marked with a makers'-logo (circle with numbers - see pictures) on the back and/or inside as is usually encountered. These containers rank among the 'basic' equipment of any front-soldier and were stored in the bread-bag. This example is in an overall very nice condition and is as stated void of any damage and that only shows some minimal wear: great to complete any WH equipment set-up ie. bread-bag contents!
'Treuedienst Ehrenzeichen 1. Klasse' (or golden class, loyal-service medal for 40 yrs. of service) that comes mounted on its original ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') as issued and/or found The medal - which is unmarked as more often encountered and that can easily be graded 'mint' - is a stunning piece that retains most of its very shiny, golden-coloured finish: it also retains most of its so-called: 'Hochpolierte Kanten' (or polished sides) and has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished. It comes mounted on its corn-flower-blue-coloured ribbon which still retains its copper-toned clasp as intended for easy tunic-attachment. The medal has truly immaculate enamel and is hard to be upgraded.
'Treuedienst Ehrenzeichen 2. Klasse' (or silver class - loyal-service medal for 25 yrs. of service), that comes mounted on its original ribbon as issued and/or minimally worn The (non-maker-marked-) medal is a very nice and/or truly detailed piece that retains almost all of its fairly 'frosted'-styled, silverish finish: it also retains most of its: 'Hochpolierte Kanten' (or polished sides) as issued. The medal comes mounted on its cornflower-blue-coloured ribbon which still retains its period - silver-toned - attachment-pin for wearing the medal on a tunic. The medal has most certainly never been cleaned - it shows some minimal tarnish - and has an immaculate (ie. fully undamaged) enamelled swastika-area. Simply a very nice example that is almost impossible to be upgraded!
'Treuedienst Ehrenzeichen 2. Klasse' (or silver class - loyal-service medal for 25 yrs. of service), that comes mounted on its original ribbon as issued and/or minimally worn The (as always non-maker-marked-) medal is a very nice and/or truly detailed piece that retains almost all of its fairly 'frosted'-styled, silverish finish: it also retains most of its: 'hochpolierte Kanten' (or polished sides) as issued. The medal comes mounted on its cornflower-blue-coloured ribbon which still retains its period - silver-toned - attachment-pin for wearing the medal on a tunic. The medal has most certainly never been cleaned - it shows some minimal tarnish - and has an immaculate (ie. fully undamaged) enamelled swastika-area. Simply a very nice example that is almost impossible to be upgraded!
'Treuedienst Ehrenzeichen 2. Klasse' (silver class - loyal service medal for 25 yrs.of service), that comes on its original ribbon as issued and worn - overall nice albeit issued condition! This is a nice example of a - non-maker-marked - example of the 'Treuedienst Ehrenzeichen 2. Klasse' (silver class - loyal service medal for 25 yrs.of service) that comes on its original, cornflower-blue coloured ribbon as issued, in overall nice condition. The medal is a nice piece that retains all its silver finish: it also retains its 'Hochpolierte Kanten' but is somewhat dirty (it has never been cleaned). It comes on its corn-flower blue ribbon which still has its period - silver-toned - attachment-pin for wearing the medal on a tunic. The medal has never been cleaned and has immaculate (ie. undamaged) enamel. Simply a nice example!
'Variant'-pattern, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based version of an: 'Infanterie-Sturm- abzeichen in Silber' (or infantry assault badge ie. IAB), being a nicely maker- (ie. 'M.K.1'-) marked example that was produced by a today still unidentified maker This example - which is as stated above nicely 'M.K.1'-marked on the back as more often encountered with awards by this maker - is a typical piece that was produced by a today still unidentified maker ie. 'Hersteller'. The badge - which has truly pronounced detaill - comes naturally with a functional (and/or unaltered-) catch, pin- and/or ball-shaped pin-set-up as to be expected. The piece - which is also referred to as a: 'M.K.1'-variant - is executed from greyish-coloured zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal and has maintained a neat silverish-grey-coloured- and/or typical 'zinc-based' finish (as to be expected). The badge - which was IMO only minimally used- ie. worn - shows some dust and dirty areas but was never cleaned nor polished: it has a nice, somewhat darkened age-patina (see pictures). The front has lost most of its silverish-finish whereas the back still shows a fully preserved finish (something that was with certainty caused by having been worn- ie. used). These desirable and neatly maker-marked 'variant'- ie. 'M.K.1'-IABs can easily be graded 'fairly scarce'.
'Variant'-pattern, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based version of an: 'Infanterie-Sturm- abzeichen in Silber' (or infantry assault badge ie. IAB), being a nicely maker- (ie. 'R.S.'-) marked example that was produced by the: 'Rudolf Souval'-company This example - which is as stated above nicely 'R.S.'-marked on the back as more often encountered with awards by this maker - is a typical piece as was produced by the: 'Rudolf Souval'-company based in the town of Wien (ie. Vienna) in Austria. The badge - which has truly pronounced detaill - comes naturally with a functional (and/or unaltered-) catch, pin- and/or hinge (-set-up) as to be expected. The piece - which is also referred to as a: 'small mark' variant - is executed from greyish-coloured zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal and has maintained a neat silverish-grey-coloured- and/or typical 'zinc-based' finish (as to be expected). The badge - which was IMO only minimally used- ie. worn - shows some dust and dirty areas but was never cleaned nor polished: it has a nice, somewhat darkened age-patina (see pictures). These desirable and neatly maker-marked 'variant'- ie. 'classic set-up' variant IABs as produced by the 'R.S.'-company can easily be graded 'fairly scarce'.
'Variant-pattern', 'Reichssportabzeichen DRL in Bronze' (or: DRL sports'-badge in bronze) being an unusually non-marked example that is totally void of any text on its back The attractive badge is of the version with swastika and retains almost all of its (minimally darkened-, golden-bronze-coloured-) finish. As stated is this particular badge unusually non-maker-marked and is also void of the: 'D.R.G.M.'-patent-pending text (see pictures). The badge was IMO never cleaned nor polished and retains a fairly darkened (ie. somewhat dirty- and/or tarnished-) age-patina. It comes naturally mounted on its functional pin-/pin-catch- set-up.

As stated is the badge unusually non-maker-marked. The badge was IMO never cleaned nor polished and retains a fairly darkened (ie. somewhat dirty- and/or tarnished-) age-patina.
'Variant-pattern', linnen-based- and/or neatly 'machine-woven', golden-yellow-coloured armband entitled: 'Deutsche Wehrmacht', as was intended for staff-members of the German armed forces ie. 'Wehrmacht' This is a neat 'variant-pattern', linnen-based- and/or neatly 'machine-woven'-, golden-yellow-coloured armband (ie. 'Armbinde') entitled: 'Deutsche Wehrmacht', as was intended for staff-members of the German armed forces ie. 'Wehrmacht', that comes in an overall very nice (ie. IMO never issued- nor worn-) condition. These neat golden-yellow-coloured and/or: linnen-based armbands were used by the various (civil- and/or military-) staff-members of the German armed-forces i.e. 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'. The armband on offer here measures approximately 37 x 9,5 cms. and is executed on more course-like linnen: it was found amongst a grouping of Belgian-produced insignia and might well be a Belgian produced 'variant'-specimen. The piece shows some minimal staining ie. dust, simply caused by decades of storage only. A nice and with certainty unusualy encountered example!
'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Gold', being a non-marked, 'Buntmetall'-based example, that comes stored in its nicely maker- (ie. 'LDO'-) marked and ink-stamped etui The wound-badge - which is executed in neat and/or fairly shiny 'Buntmetall' - shows only minimal wear and has of course a fully functional and typically (thin- ie. round-) shaped pin and/or totally unaltered catch. The badge is most certainly never cleaned and retains truly all of its golden-toned finish (ie. is neatly so-called: 'Feuervergoldet'). It only shows some minimal tarnish (it has never been cleaned nor polished though). It is as stated void of any makers'-signification but might IMO well be a piece that was produced by the: 'Hauptmünzamt' based in the town of Wien (Vienna). The black-coloured- (simulated leather-based-) and or carton-based etui - which is 'scarcely' encountered in itself - is also in an overall very nice, albeit minimally used, condition (it is just somewhat dusty ie. dirty simply caused by years of storage but totally void of any damage). The etui has a white- ie. creme-coloured (simulated 'velvet'-) interior: this inlay shows a vague - but present - imprint of the wound-badge (that was most certainly stored in this manner for decades). Of additional interest is also the fact that the top of the etui shows a golden-toned 'LDO'-marking and additional 'L/..'-ink-stamp (which is hard to decypher - see pictures). Simply a very nice and surely desirable, privately-purchased, golden-class WB-set that is nowadays not that easy to encounter!
2-pieced medal-bar (or: 'Spange'), showing resp. an: 'EK II. Klasse' in 'Schinkel'-pattern and a: WH (Heeres ie. KM): 'DA 4. Stufe' (or loyal-service-medal as was intended for 4 years loyal-service) The truly decorative, 2-pieced WH (Heeres ie. Kriegsmarine) medal-bar (or: 'Spange'), shows respectively an: 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' (or Iron Cross second class) being a rarely seen early-example as executed in so-called: 'Schinkel'-format and a: 'Heeres' (ie. Kriegsmarine) 'Dienstauszeichnung 4. Stufe' (or loyal-service-medal as was intended for 4 years loyal-service), both medals in an overall very nice, albeit moderatly used and/or worn-, condition. Both medals are very nice, detailed examples which seem to have never been cleaned nor polished: both come in an equally tarnished- ie. dusty condition and also come on their period-mounted ribbons. The EK - which is mounted on its typical, red-coloured ribbon retains a fully preserved black-coloured- (ie. somewhat satin-like-) 'inner-core' and has a somewhat tarnished silver-frame (that still retains a fair bit of its high-polished sides ie. 'hochpolierte Kanten'. It is as mentioned a piece of the (scarcely seen!) early-period 'Schinkel'-format. (Note: the differences between a 'Schinkel'-format cross - which is in fact a smaller variant as mounted in a WWI IC rim - and a regular type can easily be spotted when compared next to eachother). Both other medals retain most of their original, frosted silver- toned finish: both medals (and/or ribbons) are just a bit dirty ie. tarnished, simply caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage. The DA comes naturally with its obligatory (silver-coloured-) eagle-device attached. The 'Spange' is neatly 'backed' with light-green-coloured wool and comes naturally mounted on its functional pin-/catch set-up - see pictures. The medal-bar was recently found at a private household and was never before in a collection. The 'Spange' is most certainly a period-compiled and/or worn piece and is NOT a post-war compilation: it originated from a private household and was kept as such for decades. These 2-pieced medal-bars- ie. 'Spangen' having a 'Schinkel'-pattern IC attached can easily be graded 'scarce'.
2-pieced ribbon-bar (ie. 'Feld-/Bandspange') showing resp. the ribbons for a: 'KVK II.Kl. ohne Schwerter' and an: 'N.S.D.A.P.- Dienstauszeichnung der 3. Stufe' The 'Band-/Feldspange' holds the ribbons for a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz der 2. Klasse ohne Schwerter' (or: war merits'-cross second class without swords) and an: 'N.S.D.A.P.- Dienstauszeichnung der 3. Stufe' (or N.S.D.A.P. service-award as awarded for 10-years of loyal-service) and comes in an overall nice (albeit clearly issued- ie. moderately worn-) condition. The attached bronze-coloured- (and IMO copper-based-) (eagle-) device has a neat somewhat 'frosted' and/or very detailed appearance: it retains a nice and/or bright age-patina. Both ribbons are of the smaller- (ie. regular-) ribbon-bar size and measure 1,5 cms. each as is more often encountered. The 'Spange' is in a very nice condition overall and is of course fully functional: it is not backed but shows a silver-toned back-plate and retains its functional pin-/catch-attachment (see pictures). It should be noted that all ribbon-bars containing an N.S.D.A.P. loyal-service medal can be graded 'fairly scarce'.
3-piece medal bar / \'Bandspange\' - WWI IC, another WWI military decoration and a \'Treuedienst\' medal with its silver \'Auflage\' - used but functional condition! This is a neat, 3-piece medal bar / \'Bandspange\' showing the ribbons for respectively a WWI IC (\'Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse\', another WWI military decoration (of which I do not know exactly its name) and a \'Treuedienst\' loyal-service medal with its silver \'Auflage\', in used but functional condition. The spange is in clearly worn and used condition but of course functional. The \'Treuedienst \'Auflage\' is very detailed and shows minor tarnish as usual. Simply a nice \'Bandspange\' that will fit almost any tunic!

Air-raid warden medal ('Luftschutz-Ehrenzeichen 2.Stufe'), aluminium, light-weight version - slightly used condition! This is a neat (light-weight) aluminium medal intended for air-raid wardens 2nd. class ('Luftschutz-Ehrenzeichen 2.Stufe'). The medal comes on its (confectioned) ribbon and is in very nice condition (the copper-toned pin for attachment to the uniform is also present). The medal is clearly used (it shows some dust and dirt from years of storage) but retains great detail. A nice example!
Air-raid warden medal (or: 'Luftschutz-Ehrenzeichen 2.Stufe'), being an neat maker- (ie. '60'-) marked and/or regular-weight version as executed in zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink') The neat maker- (ie. '60'-) marked medal comes together with its (neatly pre-confectioned and/or pre-folded- ie. 19 cms. sized-) ribbon and is in very nice condition overall. The medal was IMO most certainly issued and/or minimally worn (it shows some dust and dirt simply caused by years of storage and or minimal wear) but retains great pronounced detail without showing any defaults. The piece comes mounted on its aluminium-based ring that shows the makers-mark: 60 (denoting that this is a medal that was produced by the medal-producing company: 'Katz u. Doehle' based in the town of Pforzheim: Simply a nice example which is hard to upgrade!
Air-raid warden medal (\'Luftschutz-Ehrenzeichen 2.Stufe\'), aluminium, light-weight version - very nice, only slightly used & issued condition! This is a very nice and detailed example of the (light-weight) aluminium medal intended for air-raid wardens 2nd. class (\'Luftschutz-Ehrenzeichen 2.Stufe\'). The medal comes on its (confectioned) ribbon and is in very nice condition (the copper-toned pin for easy attachment to the uniform is also present). The medal is clearly used (it shows some dust and dirt from years of storage) but retains great pronounced detail. The ribbon retains still bright and vivid colours. Hard to find a better example!
Aluminium WH (Heer) ID-disc \'1./Bau-Kp.25\' - used & clearly worn condition! This is a neat, aluminium WH (Heer) ID-disc which is engraved: \'1./Bau-Kp.25\' (being IMO an army Pioneer replacement unit) in used & slightly dirty condition. The disc - which is executed in a nice and unusual - farily large - letter-type - is in overall nice condition: it also has the soldiers\' bloodgroup (type: \'AB\') engraved. (Taking into account that this is a farirly scarce bloodgroup-type it has IMO been engraved four times!) The disc was never cleaned. A nice and unusual disc!
Aluminium WH (Heer) ID-disc: \'Inf.Nach.Ers.Komp.71\' that comes on its original cord as issued & worn - used condition! This is a neat, aluminium WH (Heer) ID-disc which is engraved: \'Inf.Nach.Ers.Komp.71\' (being IMO a reserve infantry unit having a signal assignation) that comes on its original (albeit shortened) cord of issue. The disc is in overall nice condition and shows normal wear and age. A nice \'Infanterie\' disc from a soldier in an uncommon infantry unit!
Aluminium WH (Heer) infantry-related ID-disc that comes on its original cord as issued and worn: \'Wehrkr.Ers.Dep.IV\' - used & clearly worn condition! This is a WH (Heer) ID-disc that is nicely engraved: \'Wehrkr.Ers.Dep.IV\' in used & clearly worn condition. The disc - which is a bit dirty- comes as found and is clearly used and never cleaned (showing some minor staining and \'worn-out\' holes from extensive wear): the characters are very crudely and not straight. The piece comes on its original cord as worn and kept for years. The disc also has the soldiers\' bloodgroup engraved (type \'A\'). A nice an original ID-disc that is IMO fairly priced!
Aluminium WH (Heer) Panzer-related ID-disc: ‘Krftf.Ers.u.Ausb.Abt.5’ - used & clearly worn condition! This is a neat WH (Heer) ID-disc which is nicely engraved: ‘Krftf.Ers.u.Ausb.Abt.5\', in clearly used and worn condition. The disc - which is a bit dirty - comes as found and is in clearly used and never cleaned condition (showing some minor staining caused by normal wear). The engraving: ‘Krftf.Ers.u.Ausb.Abt.5\' stands for the ‘Schnelle Truppen’ (ie. Panzer) replacement and training troop 5, making it a \'PZ-related\' disc that belonged to a driver. The ‘Abteilung’ was formed on 28 August 1939 and was part of the: ‘155. Division’. From 5th April 1943 onwards was this unit part of the 405. Division. Simply a nice an original ID-disc!
Aluminium-based, 'S.H.D.'- (ie. 'Sicherheits- u. Hilfsdienst'-) related ID-disc that comes mounted on its original cord as issued and/or worn, bearing the neatly stamped unit-signification that reads: 'VI 11 491 S.H.D.' The ID-disc - which is executed in a neat and/or clearly pronounced letter-type - was clearly worn and comes as found and was never cleaned nor polished: it shows however moderate usage (somewhat 'torn-out holes'). The disc is void of the soldiers' bloodgroup-type and is still a bit dirty ie. stained (it was however never cleaned nor polished and comes as recently found). It should be noted that these ID-discs as belonging to one of the more unknown and/or obscure TR-organisations such as this 'Sicherheits- u. Hilfsdienst' can easily be graded 'rare'.
Aluminium-based, WH (Luftwaffe) ID-disc, that is neatly stamped: 'Lw.Baug.Zug 15/IV' - nice, albeit clearly used and worn condition! This is a neat, aluminium-based, WH (Luftwaffe) ID-disc, that is neatly stamped: 'Lw.Baug.Zug 15/IV', in overall nice, albeit clearly used and worn condition. The unit is IMO some sort of 'Pioniere' (Bau) i.e. construction-/engineers unit. The disc is in overall nice and clearly worn condition (some staining and dirt is visible simply caused by wear and decades of storage). The disc is void of a bloodgroup and was IMO cleaned ie. polished. Of additional interest is the fact that the soldier who wore it was once (or twice) given a new number: the disc is clearl: 'Umnumiert'. Still a nice and unusual Luftwaffe 'Pioniere' related disc that is IMO accordingly priced.
Aluminium-based, WH (Luftwaffe- or Heeres??) ID-disc that is neatly stamped with a name only: 'Hausberger Jakob’ - nice, albeit clearly used and worn condition! This is a neat, WH (Luftwaffe- or Heeres??) ID-disc, that is neatly stamped with a name only that reads: 'Hausberger Jakob’, in overall nice, albeit clearly used and worn condition. The fact that this (typical WWII-period) disc only shows a name is very unusual and never before encountered by me: it might possibly also be a disc that was used by one of the other various TR-organisations. The disc is in overall nice and clearly worn condition (some staining and light corrosion is visible simply caused by wear). The disc is also void of a blood-group. A nice and unusual ID-disc that surely merits further investigation and is IMO accordingly priced.
Armshield (of the rarely seen second pattern!) as executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern, depicting the interwoven 'Cyrillic' characters: 'TB' as was intended for a Russian volunteer within the 'Terek Cossacks' The shield is in a very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued- and/or-) condition and comes as 'straightly cut of the role': it shows the black-/blue-coloured shield with above the interwoven 'Cyrillic' characters: 'TB'. Simply a truly rarely encountered piece of eastern volunteer related insignia: one of the more harder to encounter specimen of the colourfull series!

Armshield as executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern, depicting the interwoven 'Cyrillic' characters: 'POA' as was intended for a Russian volunteer within the 'Russian Liberation Army' The shield is in a very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued-) condition and comes as 'straightly cut of the role': it shows the white-coloured shield surrounded with a bright-red border with above the interwoven 'Cyrillic' characters: 'POA'.
Attractive 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based so-called 'massive-back-version' by a still unidentified maker This is a truly attractive - albeit moderately used ie. worn - example of an: 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based so-called 'massive-back-version' by a (by me) still unidentified maker, in overall nice, albeit moderately used ie. worn, condition. The badge is typical zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based example that retains most of its (shiny) silver-coloured finish as more often: it has a typical greyish-/brown coloured age-patina as more often observed. This particular example comes naturally munted on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-coloured-) pin (which is mounted on a typical 'mounting' and/or 'welded-on'- catch on a round-shaped place as is more often seen). The piece is still very detailed and has a very pronounced appearance: the award has IMO been moderately used and shows some wear on the obvious higher areas: it is moreover quite dirty but was most certainly never cleaned nor polished. It originated from a private household in Germany and was never before in collector-hands. In any case a very attractive and honest GAB that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based so-called 'massive-back-version' by: 'Alois Rettenmaier' - overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition! This is a truly attractive - albeit moderately used ie. worn - example of an: 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based so-called 'massive-back-version' that was produced by the maker: 'Alois Rettenmaier', in overall nice, albeit moderately used ie. worn, condition. The badge is typical zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based example that has lost most of its silver-coloured finish as more often: it has a typical greyish-/silverish coloured age-patina with some period finish remaining. This particular example comes naturally on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-coloured-) pin (which is mounted on a typical 'mounting' and 'welded-on'- catch as is more often seen). The piece is still very detailed and has a very pronounced appearance: the award has IMO been moderately used and shows some wear on the obvious higher areas: it is moreover quite dirty but was most certainly never cleaned nor polished. It originated from a private household in Germany and was never before in collector-hands. I deem that this particular example can be attributed to the maker: 'Alois Rettenmaier'. In any case a very attractive and honest GAB that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber' (or silver IAB), being a maker- (ie. 'Sh.u.Co. 41'-) marked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) version ie. 'variant', as was procuded by the: 'Sohni, Heubach & Co.'-company - overall nice condition! This is a truly attractive - albeit minimally used ie. worn - example of an: 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber' (or silver assault-badge ie. IAB), being being a neat maker- (ie. 'Sh.u.Co. 41'-) marked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) version ie. 'variant', as was procuded by the: 'Sohni, Heubach & Co.'-company, in overall nice (albeit minimally used ie. worn-) condition. The badge is typical zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based example that retains most of its silver-coloured finish: it has a typical and 'fairly shiny' age-patina. This particular example comes naturally on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-coloured-) pin which shows a typical mounting and/or catch as to be expected. The piece is very detailed and has a very pronounced appearance: the award has IMO been moderately used and shows some minimal wear ie. dirt on some the obvious higher-placed areas: it was however most certainly never cleaned nor polished. It originated from a private household in Germany and was never before in collector-hands. The maker of this particular IAB is the: 'Sohni, Heubach & Co.'-company and it deals with an uncommonly encountered 'variant' that shows a partly obscured makers'-mark (see pictures). In any case a very attractive and honest IAB that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in, being a non-maker-marked-, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based version (ie. 'crimped scooped rifle-variant'), as was procuded by the: 'S&L'-company - overall nice (albeit issued- ie. worn-) condition! This is a truly attractive - albeit minimally used ie. worn - example of an: 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber' (or silver assault-badge ie. IAB), being a non-maker-marked-, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based version (ie. 'crimped scooped rifle-variant'), as was procuded by the: 'S&L'-company, in overall nice (albeit issued- ie. worn-) condition. The badge is a typical zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based example that retains a fair bit of its (dull-) silver-coloured finish: it has a typical 'Feinzink'-like age-patina. This particular example comes naturally on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-coloured-) pin which shows a typical 'crimped' mounting and/or catch as to be expected. The piece is very detailed and has a very pronounced appearance: the award has IMO been moderately used and shows some minimal wear ie. dirt on some the obvious higher-placed areas: it was however most certainly never cleaned nor polished. It originated from a private household in Germany and was never before in collector-hands. The maker of this particular IAB is the: 'Steinhauer u. Lück'-company and it deals with an uncommonly encountered so-called: 'crimped scooped rifle-variant'. In any case a very attractive and honest IAB that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive 'Reichssportabzeichen DRL in Bronze' (or: DRL sports'-badge in bronze), being an example that is nicely maker- (ie. 'Wernstein - Jena'-) marked on the back The attractive badge is of the version with swastika and retains almost all of its (minimally darkened-, truly golden-bronze-coloured-) finish. As stated is the badge nicely maker-marked: 'Wernstein/Jena' and bears the 'DRGM' text and/or number on the back, as usually encountered. The badge - which has a fully functional pin- and/or pin-catch set-up - was IMO never cleaned nor polished and retains a minimally darkened- and/or untouched age-patina (see pictures). Simply a very nice example that is impossible to upgrade!

Attractive (albeit non-maker-marked- and IMO early war-period!) example of a black wound-badge (or: 'Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz') - overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition! This is an attractive (albeit non-maker-marked- and IMO early war-period-) example of a black wound-badge (or: 'Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz'), in overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition. The badge shows some moderate wear ie. age but retains most of its original black (and fairly 'shiny'!) painted ie. sprayed, black-coloured surface (see pictures). The wound-badge is as stated a non-maker-marked example which is executed in copper-based metal. Of course are the (regular- ie. thin-shaped- and/or also copper-based-) pin and/or (typical!) catch (-set-up) fully functional and of course present. This piece has never been cleaned nor polished: it shows some minimal dirt and dust (mainly visible on the back). Simply an attractive, non-maker-marked and with certainty early war-period black wound-badge: hard to find a nicer example for a more interesting price!

Attractive - 'standard-pattern'-, WH (Heeres, LW, Waffen-SS etc.) WWII-period- wrist-watch (or: 'Dienstuhr') of the make: 'Arsa', having a black-coloured dial-plate and having an engraved serial-number (that reads: 'D 7052 H') on its back These attractive service-watches - having a standard 15- or 17- jewel movement - were distributed at a very limited scale to the various soldiers (ie. NCOs and/or officers!) of the: 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' and were properly entered in both 'Wehrpass' and/or: 'Soldbuch'. They had to be engraved with a 'DH'-numbering on the back something that is the abbreviation of: 'Deutsches Heer' (as can be seen on this example on offer here). This particular example shows a clear and/or undamaged glass-based surface and has the (serial-) number: 'D 7052 H' engraved on its back (see pictures). The piece on offer here - which shows the maker-mark: 'Arsa - Wasserdicht - Stossgesichert' comes with a black-coloured (and/or fully undamaged- albeit minimally faded-) dial having a subsidiary 'seconds'-dial at the 6 o'clock position. The piece has a nice (albeit moderately used-) steel-based casing (which is executed in chrome-coloured, nickle-silver metal): it just shows some regular wear and age, simply caused by moderate wear and/or age. As stated is the piece functional and in running condition and comes mounted on its period-, brownish-coloured- and/or smooth-styled, leather-based- armband attached (which is almost certainly a post-war-replaced- but truly neat example). It should be noted that these attractive 'WH-Dienstuhren' can easily be graded 'scarce'.

Attractive - 'variant'- ie. first-pattern! - WH (Heeres) 'Gebirgsjäger'- (ie. mountain-troopers-) related arm-badge, being a desirable example as was executed in the 'BeVo'-weave pattern on a field-grey-coloured background This is an attractive - 'variant'- ie. first-pattern! - WH (Heeres) 'Gebirgsjäger'- (ie. mountain-troopers-) related arm-badge, being a desirable example as was executed in the 'BeVo'-weave pattern on a field-grey-coloured background, that comes in an overall very nice (ie. virtually mint- ie. unissued-) condition. The piece comes in an unissued (ie. minty-) condition and came as 'straightly cut-from-the-role': its is neatly machine-embroidered on a field-grey-coloured (and/or linnen-based-) background and is showing the famous 'Edelweiss' flower. The piece was as stated above never used nor tunic-attached but does show some minimal age and/or staining simply caused by decades of storage and handling. Simply a nice occasion to acquire a genuine, early- ie. 'first-pattern'- so-called 'Gebirgsjäger' (mountain-troopers) armbadge for an interesting price!
Attractive - 'variant'- ie. first-pattern! - WH (Heeres) 'Gebirgsjäger'- (ie. mountain-troopers-) related arm-badge, being a desirable example as was executed in the 'BeVo'-weave pattern on a field-grey-coloured background This is an attractive - 'variant'- ie. first-pattern! - WH (Heeres) 'Gebirgsjäger'- (ie. mountain-troopers-) related arm-badge, being a desirable example as was executed in the 'BeVo'-weave pattern on a field-grey-coloured background, that comes in an overall very nice (ie. virtually mint- ie. unissued-) condition. The piece comes in an unissued (ie. minty-) condition and came as 'straightly cut-from-the-role': its is neatly machine-embroidered on a field-grey-coloured (and/or linnen-based-) background and is showing the famous 'Edelweiss' flower. The piece was as stated above never used nor tunic-attached but does show some minimal age and/or staining simply caused by decades of storage and handling. Simply a nice occasion to acquire a genuine, early- ie. 'first-pattern'- so-called 'Gebirgsjäger' (mountain-troopers) armbadge for an interesting price!
Attractive - albeit as more often unmarked - example of a pre-war-period SA (ie. 'Sturmabteilungen') copper- (ie. 'Messing'-) based belt-buckle, being a 'variant'-pattern- ie. 'two-pieced'-example This is a truly attractive - albeit as more often seen unmarked - example of a pre-war-period-, so-called: SA (ie. 'Sturmabteilungen') copper- (ie. 'Messing'-) based belt-buckle, being a 'variant'-pattern- ie. 'two-pieced'- example having a separate (and/or bright shiny- and chromed-steel-based 'front-plate' attached), that comes in an overall nice, albeit moderately worn and/or totally uncleaned, condition. The buckle - having a 'regular'-shaped swastika - is still a bit dirty and shows some dust and/or staining as acquired over the years. The buckle is of the 'variant'-pattern- (ie. 'two-pieced'-construction) and was (luckily) never cleaned nor polished. The piece - which is void of any makers'-mark or logo (as is more often encountered) - shows nice and/or pronounced detail but also shows the obvious signs of having been moderately worn (it is still a bit dusty as found and comes as stored for decades). Simply an attractive example of an SA belt-buckle that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - albeit clearly used- and/or worn - example of a steel-based- (and/or originally silver-coloured-) Waffen-SS belt-buckle, being a neatly: 'RzM 155/43 SS'- (= 'Assmann u. Söhne'-) marked example This is an attractive example of a steel-based- (and/or originally silver-coloured-) Waffen-SS belt-buckle, being a neatly: 'RzM 155/43 SS'- (= 'Assmann u. Söhne'-) marked example, in overall nice, albeit clearly used- and/or worn, condition. The buckle has regrettably lost most of its original silver-coloured finish (only minimal remains are visible ie. present esp. on its back - see pictures). The overall surface shows clear evidence of having being worn and shows some dirt and/or staining (it has IMO however not been polished nor cleaned). The buckle - which is naturally a 100% garuanteed original example - has a very detailed appearance and still has an overall nice age-patina. As stated is the buckle a neatly maker-marked example that bears the makers-designation: 'RzM 155/43 SS' (as is visible under the roller-attachment as usual - see pictures). As certainly known are these genuine SS-buckles as produced by the: 'Assmann u. Söhne'-company getting really hard to find: simply a nice and/or very detailed example that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - albeit minimally mis-matched - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for a: 'Soldat der Gebirgsjäger- o. Jäger-Truppen' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably minimally mis-matched - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps, as was piped in the neat green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or with certainty worn by! - a: 'Soldat der Gebirgsjäger- o. Jäger-Truppen' (or simple soldier who served within a mountain-troopers unit ie. regiment), in an overall nice (IMO only moderately used-) condition. The neat shoulderstraps - which are piped in the desirable green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured branchcolour - measure approximately 11 cms. in length each and have the neat (and desirable) 'silk-like'-type piping attached. The straps - which originates from an older shoulderstrap-collection - are fully 'text-book' in all facets and were IMO only moderately used and/or worn. The straps come naturally mounted on their functional tongues and show no defaults nor real damage but do show minimal age and/or staining as mentioned above. It should be noted that these standard-type, 'Gebirgsjäger' ie. 'Jäger'-piped EM-straps are not that easily encountered and can easily be graded 'scarce'. Simply an attractive - and truly minimally mismatched - EM-type shoulderstrap-pair, that was intended for a: 'Soldat der Gebirgsjäger- o. Jäger-Truppen': I deem that this pair is accordingly priced!
Attractive - albeit mismatched - pair of IMO mid-war-period-, so-called: 'M43'-pattern-, WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for an: 'Oberfeldwebel eines Heeres-Nachrichten-Abteilungs' The attractive - albeit mismatched - NCO-type shoulderstrap-pair is piped in the desirable bright-yellow- (ie. 'zitronengelber'-) coloured branchcolour and measures approximately 11 cms. in length. The straps have the bright-yellow- (ie. 'zitronengelber'-) coloured- and/or: 'silk-like'-type piping attached (as is more often encountered with these mid-war-period shoulderstrap-pairs) and were intended for usage by a senior-sergeant (ie. sergeant first-class) who served within an army signals-unit (ie. 'Heeres-Nachrichten-Abteilung'). The shoulderstraps - which originate from a private household and that were recently uncovered - are typical 'standard-issued'-examples that have the field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks'. They show the 'standard-pattern'-, silverish-coloured NCO-braid attached and were IMO only moderately used ie. worn: they do show wear, age and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). They have four (regular-sized- and/or aluminium- ie. zinc-based-) pips period-attached, denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Oberfeldwebel'. The straps come naturally mounted on their functional tongues (as can be seen on the pictures). The shoulderstraps come in a wonderful- and/or totally undamaged condition and will be hard to be upgraded: they are just a tiny bit mismatched in length only but were with certainty worn as such as a pair - see pictures. These desirable 'M43'-pattern-, army-signals-related-, NCO-type shoulderstraps as piped in the 'zitronengelber'-coloured branchcolour can easily be graded 'fairly scarce'. Simply a very attractive pair that belonged to an: 'Oberfeldwebel eines Heeres-Nachrichten-Abteilungs'!
Attractive - albeit non-maker-marked - example of a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse ohne Schwerter', being a neat so-called: 'Buntmetall'-based example as was produced by the company: 'Karl Gschiermeister - Wien' that comes stored in its period pouch This is a truly attractive - albeit non-maker-marked - example of a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse ohne Schwerter' (or: war-merits'-cross second class without swords), being a neat, golden-bronze-toned- and/or: 'Buntmetall'-based example that was produced by the company: 'Karl Gschiermeister' based in the town of Wien (ie. Vienna) and that comes in an overall very nice (ie. virtually mint- and/or unissused-) condition. The medal comes naturally with its (full-length and/or unconfectioned-) ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') as stored for decades. The neatly golden-toned- ie. bronze-like finish and detail are still very nice and bright: the piece truly retains all it original finish and came stored in its thin-shaped, 'wrapping-paper' as packed decades ago. The piece itself is a non-maker-marked example that was with certainty produced by the unusually encountered: 'Karl Gschiermeister'-company, based in the town of Wien ie. Vienna). The cross came stored in its equally minty- and/or naturally period-, carton- (ie. 'Zellstoff'-) based pouch (which is naturally also accordingly maker-marked - see pictures). Simply a very attractive 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse ohne Schwerter'-set that is IMO accordingly priced!

The piece itself is a non-maker-marked example that was with certainty produced by the (actually) unusually encountered: 'Karl Gschiermeister'-company, based in the town of Wien ie. Vienna). The cross came stored in its equally minty- and/or naturally period-, carton- (ie. 'Zellstoff'-) based pouch (which is naturally also accordingly maker-marked - see pictures).

Attractive - albeit non-marked - example of a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse ohne Schwerter', being a neat 'Buntmetall'-based example - overall very nice (albeit IMO issued but never worn-) condition! This is a truly attractive - albeit non-marked - example of a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse ohne Schwerter' (or: war-merits'-cross second class without swords), being a neat, golden-bronze-toned- and/or 'Buntmetall'-based example that comes together with its full-length (ie. 29 cms. long-sized-) and/or unconfectioned ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt'), in overall very nice (and IMO with certainty issued but never worn ie. used-) condition. The medal comes with its non-confectioned- and/or pre-folded- ribbon as issued- and/or stored for decades. The neatly (darker-) golden-toned-, bronze finish and detail are still very nice and bright: the piece truly retains almost all of its original finish. Simply a very nice albeit non-maker-marked 'KvK II. Kl. o. Schw.' which is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - albeit non-marker-marked - example of an Iron Cross 2nd Class (ie: 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse') that comes mounted on its (scarcely seen!) so-called: 'Austrian-styled'- and/or typically pre-folded ribbon This is an attractive - albeit non-marker-marked - example of an Iron Cross 2nd Class (ie: 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse') that comes mounted on its (scarcely seen!) so-called: 'Austrian-styled'- and/or typically pre-folded- and/or confectioned ribbon, that comes in overall nice (albeit IMO issued- ie. worn-) condition. The neat - and truly attractive! - cross was most certainly never cleaned and has a nice and/or only minimally tarnished age-patina: it truly shows truly no paint-loss and retains a very nice, black-finished- (ie. fairly 'matted'- ie: 'satin'-like-) black-coloured 'inner-core' (see pictures). The cross - which has fine and crisp (ie. truly 'frosted'!) detail shows some dirt and/or dust acquired over the years. The cross came - as stated above - mounted on its typically pre-folded- (ie. full-length-) and/or: 'Austrian-styled' ribbon as issued and/or recently found. Simply an attractive and/or 'variant'-pattern award!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: 'Soldat u. Unteroffiziers-Anwärter der Veterinär-Truppen o. Generalsstab' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless rarely encountered! - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the bright-purple-red- (ie. 'karmesinroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or with certainty worn by! - a: 'Soldat u. Unteroffiziers-Anwärter der Veterinär-Truppen o. Generalstab' (or simple soldier and junior-sergeant candidate who served within an army veterinarian- or staff-unit ie. regiment), in an overall nice (IMO only moderately used-) condition. The neat shoulderstrap - which is piped in the desirable bright-purple-red- (ie. 'karmesinroter'-) coloured branchcolour - measures approximately 11,5 cms. in length and has the neat 'silk-like'-type piping attached (see pictures). The strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and was IMO only moderately used and/or worn. It shows a single stripe (ie. 'Lasche') which is constructed from silverish-yellow-coloured- (and standard-pattern-) NCO-braid firmly attached denoting the soldiers-rank of: 'Unteroffiziers-Anwärter'. The strap comes naturally mounted on it functional tongue and shows no defaults nor real damage but does show minimal age and/or staining as mentioned above. This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. It should be noted that the bright-purple-red- (ie. 'karmesin- roter'-) coloured branchcolour ranks amongst the rarest branchcolours as used within the: 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'. In any case a very attractive and/or mid- (ie. later-) war-period- and/or: 'Heeres'-related enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap that was intended for a: 'Soldat u. Unteroffiziers-Anwärter der Veterinär-Truppen o. Generalstab'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single - later-war-period- and/or: 'simplified'- so-called: 'M44/M45'-pattern, WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: 'Soldat der (Sturm)Artillerie-Truppen' The neat shoulderstrap - which shows the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured and/or: 'silk-like'-type piping - measures approximately 10,5 cms. in length as more often encountered and comes in an overall very nicely preserved- and/or hardly used- ie. worn-, condition. The shoulderstrap has the field-grey-coloured 'upperdeck' (as executed in typical, later-war-period-type wool) and comes naturally mounted on its simplified tongue as to be expected (see pictures). The neat strap was IMO hardly used nor worn: it shows some minimal wear, age and/or staining as to be expected (the strap is, however, fully undamaged and comes as found). These shoulderstraps were produced by using all sorts of 'left-over'-material and this strap is a true example of such cloth-shortage. It should be noted that these later-war-period- and/or 'simplified'- so-called: 'M44/M45'-pattern, WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps are very desirable and can easily be graded: 'scarce'. This particular example originated from a larger cloth- ie. shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. Simply an attractive, later-war-period- and/or: 'simplified'- so-called: 'M44/M45'-pattern, WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for a: 'Soldat der (Sturm)Artillerie-Truppen'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single - later-war-period- and/or: 'simplified'- so-called: 'M44/M45'-pattern, WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: 'Soldat der Nachrichten-Truppen' The neat shoulderstrap - which shows the bright-yellow- (ie. 'zitronengelber'-) coloured and/or: 'silk-like'-type piping - measures approximately 11,4 cms. in length as more often encountered and comes in an overall nicely preserved- and/or moderately used- ie. worn-, condition. The shoulderstrap has the field-grey-coloured 'upperdeck' (as executed in typical, later-war-period-type wool) and comes naturally mounted on its simplified tongue as to be expected (see pictures).

Attractive - albeit regrettably single - neatly 'cyphered'-, WH (Heeres) ('dress'-type) officers'-type shoulderboard, as was intended for a: 'Leutnant des Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 17' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - neatly 'cyphered'-, WH (Heeres) ('dress'-type) officers'-type shoulderboard, as was piped in the bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for a: 'Leutnant des Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 17' (or lieutnant who served within the anti-tank ie. tank-destroyer unit, numbered: '17'), that comes in an overall very nice (and IMO never worn nor tunic-attached-, condition. The neat shoulderboard - which is actually hard to encounter and can IMO easily be graded 'scarce' - is constructed in the smooth-type (ie. 'moleskin'-like) wool and is per regulation piped in the (very!) bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour. The board - which has a length of approximately 11,7 cms. - comes without tongue as found and was thus a board that was intended to be used as a so-called: 'sew-in'-type example. The board has a neat bright 'silver'-coloured (ie. 'shiny'-) 'upperdeck' (something that clearly identifies it as WH Heeres-type shoulderboard that was intended for usage on a 'dress'-type army-tunic ie. 'Waffenrock'). The board shows some minimal age ie. staining caused by years of storage only (as can be seen on the pictures). The board - which originates from a private household and was never before part of a collection - was found together with the similar-styled board that I offer under #40533: both belonged to the same officer. This example shows a (smaller-sized-) golden-toned-, Gothic-styled- so-called: 'P'-cypher and/or: '1' and/or '7'-numerals period-attached: all three devices show some minimal tarnish ie. wear but are very nicely preserved. Of additional interest is moreover the fact that the 'cyphers' were attached BEFORE the board was assembled (something that is not always the case). Simply an attractive - and desirable! - shoulderboard that belonged to a: 'Leutnant des Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 17': too bad that it is only a single example!

The board has a neat 'silver-greyish'-coloured (ie. somewhat 'sub-dued'-) 'upperdeck' (something that clearly identifies it as WH Heeres-type shoulderboard that was intended for a 'regular' army-tunic). The board shows some minimal age ie. staining caused by years of storage only (as can be seen on the pictures). The board - which originates from a private household and was never before part of a collection - was found together with the similar-styled board that I offer under #40534: both belonged to the same officer.

Of additional interest is moreover the fact that the 'cyphers' were attached BEFORE the board was assembled (something that is not always the case). Simply an attractive - and desirable! - shoulderboard that belonged to a: 'Leutnant des Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 17': too bad that it is only a single example!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single - WH (Heeres), IMO early-war- ie. pre-war-period (ie. 'M36'-model and/or: rounded-style-) EM-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: 'Soldat der Pionier-Truppen' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single - WH (Heeres), IMO early-war- (ie. pre-war-period ie. 'M36'-model- and/or: rounded-style-) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap as was piped in the neat black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der Pionier-Truppen' (or simple engineer-soldier), in overall very nice (ie. IMO hardly used- ie. worn-) condition. The neat schoulderstrap - which has the 'standard'-pattern-, darker-green coloured- and/or: truly smooth-woolen-based 'upperdeck' - has the black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured- (and/or: desirable 'silk-like'-type-) piping attached (see pictures). The strap measures approximately 11 cms. in length. The strap - which is IMO of the regular-issued - (ie. non-private-production-) type - comes mounted on its functional tongue and comes of course in a very nice, ie. fully 'text-book' condition overall. The strap shows - as stated above - only minimal wear and/or age: it does show some minimal age, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). This example originated from a larger cloth- and/or shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. In any case an attractive 'Heeres'-related EM-type shoulderstrap that was intended for - and/or used by! - a: 'Soldat der Pionier-Truppen'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless rarely encountered! - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: 'Soldat der Feldgendarmerie-Truppen' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless rarely encountered! - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the bright-orange- (ie. 'oranger'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or with certainty worn by! - a: 'Soldat der Feldgendarmerie-Truppen' (or simple soldier who served within an army field-police- unit ie. regiment), in an overall nice (IMO only moderately used-) condition. The neat shoulderstrap - which is piped in the desirable bright-orange- (ie. 'oranger'-) coloured branchcolour - measures approximately 11,2 cms. in length and has the woolen-type piping attached (see pictures). The strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and was IMO only moderately used and/or worn. The strap comes naturally mounted on it functional tongue and shows no defaults nor real damage but does show minimal age and/or staining as mentioned above. This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. It should be noted that the bright-orange- (ie. 'oranger'-) coloured branchcolour ranks amongst the rarest branchcolours as used within the: 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'. In any case a very attractive and/or mid- (ie. later-) war-period- and/or: 'Heeres'-related enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap that was intended for a: 'Soldat der Feldgendarmerie-Truppen'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless rarely encountered! - WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-war-) period, 'M36'-type (rounded-styled-) 'cyphered' EM-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: 'Soldat des Eisenbahngeschütze-Abteilungs 19' This is a very attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless rarely encountered! - WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-war-) period, 'M36'-type (rounded styled-) 'cyphered'- and/or per regulation bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) piped, enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - a: 'Soldat des Eisenbahngeschütze-Abteilungs 19' (or simple soldier who served within an army artillery- ie. armoured-train unit, numbered: '19'), that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit minimally used ie. worn-), condition. The shoulderstrap - which is approximately 13,6 cms. sized in length - has the 'standard-pattern'- and/or darker-green-coloured-, smooth-woolen-based 'upperdeck' and has the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured- and/or woolen-type piping attached. The strap shows the neat (machine-embroidered by means of so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei'-) Gothic-styled 'E'-cypher and '19'-numerals (which are executed in the bright-red- ie. 'hochroter'-coloured wool as to be expected). The strap - which never had a tongue and that was with certainty worn as a strap of the 'sew-in'-type - shows as stated above some usage and/or wear (some minor staining and/or dust is visible and/or present). It should be noted that all 'cyphered'-pattern shoulderstraps can be easily regarded 'fairly scarce'. This example originated from a larger cloth- and/or shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. In any case an attractive and/or early-war-period, neatly 'cyphered' and 'Heeres'-related EM-type shoulderstrap that was intended for a: 'Soldat des Eisenbahn- geschütze-Abteilungs 19'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless rarely enountered! - IMO mid-war-period-, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for an: 'Oberfeldwebel des Nebelwerfer-Abteilungs 329' This is a truly very attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless rarely enountered! - IMO mid-war-period-, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the neat darker-purple- (ie. 'bordeauxroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or with certainty worn by! - an: 'Oberfeldwebel des Nebelwerfer-Abteilungs 329' (or sergeant who served within the army smoketroops-unit numbered: '329'), that comes in an overall nice (IMO only moderately used- ie. worn-) condition. The neat shoulderstrap - which is piped in neat darker-purple- (ie. 'bordeauxroter'-) coloured branchcolour - measures approximately 11,5 cms. in length and has the neat (and desirable) 'silk-like'-type piping attached. The strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and was IMO only moderately used and/or worn. The strap comes naturally mounted on it functional tongue and shows no defaults nor real damage but does show minimal age and/or staining as mentioned above. The strap has the neat somewhat golden-silver-coloured (ie. somewhat sub-dued-) type NCO-braid and two silver-coloured (identical- and zinc-based-) pips attached, denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Oberfeldwebel'. Next to this, it shows the (silver-coloured- and/or: zinc-based-) '3'-, '2'- and '9'-numerals period-attached (as can be seen on the pictures). This particular example originated from a larger cloth- ie. shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. In any case a very attractive and/or mid- (ie. later-) war-period- and/or: 'Heeres'-related NCO-type shoulderstrap as executed in one of the more scarcely encountered branchcolours of the: 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' that was intended for an: 'Oberfeldwebel des Nebelwerfer-Abteilungs 329'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely encountered! - 'Ostvölker'-collar-tab, as was intended for an Armenian volunteer within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. 'Zugführer' (or: NCO) who served within the 'Armenian Legion' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely encountered! - 'BeVo'-woven 'Ostvölker'-collar-tab having the golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for an Armenian volunteer within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. 'Zugführer' (or: NCO) who served within the 'Armenian Legion', in overall very nice (ie. virtually mint- and/or never tunic-attached-) condition. The tab is nicely (and entirely!) executed in so-called: 'BeVo-weave technique' and is not confectioned nor folded: it comes as just 'cut of the role'. The piece shows the attractive, interwoven 'NCO'-braid, denoting that that it was intended for usage by a non-commisioned officer-rank (ie. 'Zugführer'). It should be noted that these - original - 'official' 'Ostvölker'-collar-tabs as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. being of German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo') are considered 'fairly rare'. Simply a great occasion to acquire an attractive German produced 'BeVo'-cloth collar-insignia as was intended for an Armenian volunteer ie. 'Zugführer' or NCO who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht': too bad that it concerns a single example!

'Zugführer' (or: NCO) who served within the 'Armenian Legion', in overall very nice (ie. virtually mint- and/or never tunic-attached-) condition. The tab is nicely (and entirely!) executed in so-called: 'BeVo-weave technique' and is not confectioned nor folded: it comes as just 'cut of the role'. The piece shows the attractive, interwoven 'NCO'-braid, denoting that that it was intended for usage by a non-commisioned officer-rank (ie. 'Zugführer'). It should be noted that these - original - 'official' 'Ostvölker'-collar-tabs as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. being of German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo') are considered 'fairly rare'. Simply a great occasion to acquire an attractive German produced 'BeVo'-cloth collar-insignia as was intended for an Armenian volunteer ie. 'Zugführer' or NCO who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht': too bad that it concerns a single example!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely encountered! - WH (Luftwaffe) collar-tab (ie. 'Kragenspiegel'), as was intended for usage by a: 'Flieger-Ingenieur' (being a rank similar to: 'Leutnant') This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely encountered! - WH (Luftwaffe) collar-tab (ie. 'Kragenspiegel') as was executed on a bright-pink-coloured background, as was intended for usage by a: 'Flieger-Ingenieur' (being a rank similar to: 'Leutnant'), in overall very nice (and IMO never used- nor tunic-attached-), condition. The tab is executed in the neat smooth-like (ie. 'moleskin'-type) wool and has truly extraordinary detail: the shown craftmanship is simply stunning. The backing is constructed of yellowish-beige-coloured so-called 'buckram'-based cloth (as can be seen on the pictures). These 'pink-coloured' LW-tabs as were intended for staffmembers of the 'Ingenieurkorps der Luftwaffe' are quite hard to encounter and can easily be graded 'scarce'. Simply a very attractive collar-tab that belonged to a: 'Flieger-Ingenieur': too bad that it is only a single specimen!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely seen! - white-piped, so-called: 'Reiter-HJ' ie. 'HJ-Streifendienst' ('Hitlerjugend') shoulderstrap, as was intended for an: 'Oberkameradschaftsführer' within 'Bann 598' (598 = Einbeck) This is a fairly rarely encountered - albeit regrettably single - white-piped-, so-called: 'Reiter-HJ' ie. 'HJ-Streifendienst' ('Hitlerjugend') shoulderstrap, as was intended for usage by an: 'Oberkameradschaftsführer' within 'Bann 598' (598 = Einbeck), that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. The strap - executed in black linnen, having the white-embroidered '598'-numeral and white-coloured- (and rayon-like) piping - comes mounted on its functional tongue as found and most certainly worn. The paper-based 'RzM'-etiket is regrettably missing (something which is certainly caused by regular wear). The piece shows some normal age and wear and measures approximately 11 cms. as usually encountered. It shows a silver-coloured- (and aluminium-based-) pip and piece of silver-coloured rank-braid attached, denoting the unusually seen rank of: 'Ober- kameradschaftsführer'. Simply an attractive and most certainly not that often encountered youth-related shoulderstrap: too bad it is only a single specimen!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single but rarely seen! - WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-war-) period, 'M35'-type (pointed-styled-) 'cyphered'-, EM-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: 'Soldat u. Uffz.-Anwärter des Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 7' This is a very attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-war-) period, 'M35'-type (pointed-style-) 'cyphered'- and/or per regulation non-piped, enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for - and/or clearly worn by! - a: 'Soldat u. Unteroffiziers-Anwärter des Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 7' (or: soldier and/or: junior-sergeant-candidate who served within the army anti-tank- ie. tank-destroyers' unit, numbered: '7'), in overall nice, albeit moderately used ie. worn-, condition. The shoulderstrap - which is approximately 13 cms. sized in length - has the 'standard-type'- and/or: field-grey-coloured, smooth-woolen-based 'upperdeck' and has (of course) no piping (and is as such a typical, early strap of the 'M35'-pattern). The strap shows the neat (machine-embroidered by means of so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei'-) '7'-cypher (which is executed in the bright-pink- ie. 'rosa-roter'-coloured wool as to be expected). Moreover, does it show a firmly affixed stripe of NCO-braid attached, denoting the soldiers' rank of: 'Unteroffiziers- Anwärter'. The strap - which comes mounted on its functional tongue - shows as stated above some moderate usage and/or wear (some minor staining and/or dust is visible and/or present). It should be noted that all 'cyphered'-pattern shoulderstraps can be easily regarded 'fairly scarce'. This particular example originated from a private household and was never before part of a collection: it was found together with the other single-pieced PZ-Jäger strap I offer under number: 39213. In any case a very attractive and/or with certainty rarely encountered and/or neatly 'cyphered'- ie. or 'Heeres-Panzerjäger'-related EM-type shoulderstrap that was intended for a: 'Soldat u. Unteroffiziers-Anwärter des Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 7'!

The neat shoulderboard is constructed in the smooth-type (ie. 'moleskin'-like) wool and is per regulation piped in the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour. The board - which has a length of approximately 11 cms. - comes without tongue as found and/or worn and was thus a board that was worn as a so-called: 'sew-in'-type example. The board has a truly 'silver-greyish'-coloured (ie. somewhat 'sub-dued'-) 'upperdeck' (something that clearly identifies it as WH Heeres-type shoulder- board). The board shows some minimal age ie. staining caused by years of storage and/or minimal wear and/or usage: it is IMO most certainly worn and/or carefully tunic-removed (it comes with a pebbled-styled, button period-attached (sewn on by hand). The board - which originate from a private household and was never before in a collection - shows the(regular-sized-) golden-toned, '4, '5' and '1'-numerals attached: all 3 devices show some minimal tarnish ie. wear.

The board has a neat 'silver-greyish'-coloured (ie. somewhat 'sub-dued'-) 'upperdeck' (something that clearly identifies it as a WH Heeres-type shoulderboard). The board shows some minimal age ie. staining caused by years of storage and/or minimal wear and/or usage: it is IMO most certainly worn and/or carefully tunic-removed (ie. cut-off). The board - which originates from a private household and was never before in a collection - shows neatly golden-toned- '3' and/or '2'-numerals attached: both devices show some minimal tarnish ie. wear.

The board - which has a length of approximately 9,5 cms. - comes without tongue as found and/or worn and was thus a board that was worn as a so-called: 'sew-in'-type example. The board has a neat 'silver-greyish'-coloured (ie. somewhat 'sub-dued'-) 'upperdeck' (something that clearly identifies it as a WH Heeres-type shoulderboard). The board shows some minimal age ie. staining caused by years of storage and/or minimal wear and/or usage: it is IMO most certainly worn and/or carefully tunic-removed ie. cut-off a tunic. The board shows a neat (golden-bronze-toned-, smaller-sized- and/or Gothic-styled-) 'M'-cypher attached and shows an (equally golden-toned-) '6'-numeral period attached: both devices show some minimal tarnish ie. wear. Simply an attractive shoulderboard that belonged to a: 'Major des Maschinengewehr-Abteilungs 6': too bad that it is only a single example!

'moleskin'-like) wool and is per regulation piped in the (very!) bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour. The board - which has a length of approximately 10 cms. - comes without tongue as found and/or worn and was thus a board that was worn as a so-called: 'sew-in'-type example. The board has a neat 'silver-greyish'-coloured (ie. somewhat 'sub-dued'-) 'upperdeck' (something that clearly identifies it as WH Heeres-type shoulder- board). The board shows some minimal age ie. staining caused by years of storage and/or minimal wear and/or usage: it is IMO most certainly worn and/or carefully tunic-removed (ie. cut-off). The board - which originates from a private household and was never before in a collection - shows a (smaller-sized-) golden-toned-, Gothic-styled 'P'-cypher and/or: '2' and/or '4'-numerals attached: all three devices show some minimal tarnish ie. wear.

All 3 devices (as well as the strap itself) show some moderate age- ie. fair tarnish and/or wear (some minor staining and/or dust is visible-/present). It should be noted that all 'cyphered'-type shoulderstraps can be easily regarded 'scarce'. In any case an very attractive and/or early-war period-, 'cyphered Heeres'-related shoulderstrap as was intended for an: 'Oberfeldwebel eines Regiments der “GrossDeutschland”-Division': too bad that it is only a single strap!

The strap - which measures approximately 12 cms. in length - shows the silverish-coloured and/or standard-type, 'Heeres' NCO-braid attached. The strap shows also the '2', '8' and '2' numerals attached (which are all three executed in silverish-coloured metal (ie. 'Buntmetall'). Next to these it shows a single (also 'Buntmetall'-based-) pip attached, denoting the NCOs-rank of: 'Feldwebel' (or sergeant): all devices shows some minimal age- ie. fair tarnish. The strap shows as stated above only moderate usage and/or wear (some minor staining and/or dust is visible-/present). It should be noted that all 'cyphered'-type shoulderstraps can be easily regarded 'fairly scarce'. In any case a very attractive and/or early-war period-, 'cyphered Heeres'-related shoulderstrap as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel des Infanterie-Regiments 282': too bad that it is only a single strap!

The neat strap - which is IMO of the pre- ie. early-war-type and only shows minimal age ie. wear - has a darker-green-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdeck' and has the bright-yellow (ie. 'zitronengelbener'-) coloured- and/or woolen-type piping as more often encountered. The piece comes mounted on its original tongue and measures approximately 11,5 cms. in length: it shows the silverish-coloured and/or standard-type, 'Heeres' NCO-braid attached. The strap has two (aluminium-based-) pips attached, denoting the NCOs-rank of: 'Oberfeldwebel' (or sergeant first-class): bothdevices shows some minimal age- ie. tarnish. The strap shows as stated above only moderate usage and/or wear (some minor staining and/or dust is visible-/present).

The neat strap - which is IMO of the pre- ie. early-war-type and measures approximately 11,8 cms. in length - shows only minimal age ie. wear and has a darker-green-coloured- and/or smooth woolen-based 'upperdeck' as to be expected. It has the darker-green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured- and/or: woolen-type piping attached as is more often encountered on these 'M36'-pattern- (rounded-style-) straps (see pictures). Of additional interest is furthermore the fact that this strap is fairly wide-sized and has a width of 5.2 cms. (one and other that was with certainty done to eventually accommodate larger-sized numerals). The strap - which is IMO of the 'standard-issue'-pattern and does NOT originate from a tailor-shop - shows as stated above only moderate usage and/or wear (some staining and/or dust is visible-/present). This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. In any case an attractive and/or IMO early-war-period, 'Heeres'-related-, EM-type shoulderstrap that was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der Gebirgjäger-Truppen'!

'weisser'-) coloured and/or: 'silk-like'-type piping attached as is more often encountered (see pictures). The piece comes mounted on its original tongue and measures approximately 10,5 cms. in length. The strap has the neat somewhat bluish-grey-coloured (ie. sub-dued-) type NCO-braid and/or single- (regular-sized-, silver-coloured- and/or: zinc-based-) pip attached, denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Feldwebel'. Next to this the strap shows a (silverish-grey-coloured- and/or equally zinc-based-) so-called: 'FHH'-cypher period-attached: both devices are only minimally tarnished and/or stained but are still very nice and/or pronounced. This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. In any case an attractive and/or mid- (ie. later-) war-period, neatly 'cyphered' and/or 'Heeres'-related NCO-type shoulderstrap that was intended for a: 'Feldwebel u.

The neat shoulderstrap - which is piped in the desirable white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour - measures approximately 11 cms. in length and has the neat (and desirable) 'silk-like'-type piping attached. The strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and was IMO moderately used and/or worn. The strap comes naturally mounted on it functional tongue and shows no defaults nor real damage but does show minimal age, wear and/or staining as mentioned above. The strap came with a single- (field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based-) so-called: slip-on (ie. 'Übershube') attached, bearing the signification: '70' (as executed in equally white-coloured so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei' done in wool as can be seen on the pictures). Moreover, does this example show a single stripe (ie. 'Lasche') which is constructed from silverish-coloured- (and/or early-type- and/or standard-pattern-) NCO-braid attached denoting the soldiers-rank of: 'Unteroffiziers-Anwärter'. This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired.

The strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and was IMO only moderately used and/or worn. The strap comes naturally mounted on it functional tongue and shows no defaults nor real damage but does show minimal age and/or staining as mentioned above.

Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern-, WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel u. Mitglied der Artillerie-Schießschule Thorn' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern-, WH (Heeres), NCO-type shoulderboard, as was piped in the neat bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) branchcolour, as was intended for - and worn by! - a: 'Feldwebel u. Mitglied der Artillerie-Schießschule Thorn' (or artillery-sergeant and member - IMO a trainer - who served within the artillery-shooting school based in the town of Thorn), in overall very nice, albeit moderately used ie. worn-, condition. The strap - which has the 'standard-type'- and/or: field-grey-coloured-, woolen-based 'upperdeck' - has the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured- and/or: 'silk-like'-type piping attached and measures approximately 11,5 cms. in length. The board shows the silverish-coloured- (ie. 'standard-type'-) NCO-braid attached and shows one ('Buntmetall'-based-) pip attached denoting the soldiers'-rank of: 'Feldwebel' (ie. sergeant). Moreover, has the strap a neat (and rarely seen!) Gothic-styled- and/or also 'Buntmetall'-based (and regular-sized-) so-called: 'S'-cypher attached, denoting the NCOs function at the: 'Artillerie-Schießschule'. Of interest is furthermore the fact that the board was constructed by using a standard-type 'Unteroffiziers'-type board: the piece of horizontally-mounted NCO-braid (being of the more early-period-type) is loosely added as a: 'Lasche' (see photos). The board comes mounted on its original tongue and is in a very nice, ie. fully 'text-book' condition overall. It shows as stated above only minimal usage (some minimal age, dust and/or staining is present and/or visible) and I deem that the board has been crudely tunic-removed (causing a tear in the button-hole of the tongue). This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. In any case an attractive and/or mid- (ie. later-) war-period- and/or: 'Heeres'-related enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap that was intended for a: 'Feldwebel u.

Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO mid-war period-, so-called: 'M43'-pattern-, WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap as was intended for a: 'Soldat der Panzergrenadier-Truppen' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO mid-war period-, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the neat bright-green- (ie. 'hellgrüner'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or with certainty worn by! - a: 'Soldat der Panzergrenadier-Truppen' (or: simple soldier who served within an army-infantry-related-, 'Panzergrenadiere'- ie. rifle- regiment or unit), in an overall very nice (and IMO only moderately used-) condition. The neat shoulderstrap - which is piped in the desirable bright-green- (ie. 'hellgrüner'-) coloured branchcolour - measures approximately 11,8 cms. in length and has the neat (and desirable) 'silk-like'-type piping attached (see pictures). The strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and was IMO moderately used and/or worn. The strap comes naturally mounted on it functional tongue and shows no defaults nor real damage but does show minimal age, wear and/or staining as mentioned above. This particular example originated from a larger cloth- and/or: shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. It should, moreover, be mentioned that these M43-pattern-, bright-green piped straps are much harder to find than their M44-pattern counterparts. In any case an attractive and/or: mid-war-period- and/or: 'Heeres'-related-, NCO-type shoulderstrap that was intended for - and/or used by! - a: 'Soldat der Panzergrenadier-Truppen'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - NSB (ie. 'Nationaal Socialistische Beweging') so-called: 'WA' (ie. 'Weerafdelingen') shoulderboard as was intended for usage by a high-ranked official with the rank of: 'WA-Banleider' This is a truly attractive example of a NSB (ie. 'Nationaal Socialistische Beweging') (being the Dutch WWII pro-German Party) so-called: 'WA' (ie. 'Weerafdelingen') shoulderboard, as was intended for usage by a high-ranked WA-official with the rank of: 'WA-Banleider', that comes in an overall very nice (albeit IMO moderately worn and/or used- ie. tunic-removed-) condition. This movement - ie. the WA - could be compared with the German SA-stormtroopers and was (re-)founded in 1941 after having been disbanded for various years. The shoulderboard is per regulation executed in bright-red-coloured wool and shows a golden-toned 'upperdeck' (as executed in twisted- and/or golden-toned braid). The piece has a length of 11,5 cms. and comes with its (period) golden-toned button attached (see pictures). Of addtional interest is moreover that the piece shows an inked NSB-inventory-number on its back (that reads: '153') something that is more often - but not always! - seen on genuine NSB-related insignia. As stated above comes this piece in an overall nice albeit clearly worn condition without showing any damages nor defaults whatsoever. It has clearly been worn and just shows some darkened tarnish as more often encountered. Simply an attractive and actually scarcely encountered NSB-related shoulderboard which is not that often offered for sale!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - Waffen-SS, enlisted-mens'-type shoulder- strap as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat' (ie. 'SS-Mann') who served within the: 'Waffen-SS Feldgendarmerie-Truppen' The neat strap - which comes naturally mounted on its original and/or typically shaped- (ie. 'small-sized'-) SS-type tongue as is more often encountered on genuine Waffen-SS shoulderstraps - has the desirable bright-orange- (ie. 'orangeroter'-) coloured- and/or: 'rayon'-type piping attached, denoting that it was intended for a soldier that served within the: 'Waffen-SS Feldgendarmerie-Truppen' (or: notorious field-police troops). The back of the strap (which measures 11 cms. in length as is more often encountered) is executed in field-grey-coloured wool, as is more often observed with genuine Waffen-SS-type shoulderstraps. The piece shows some minimal age, wear and/or minimal staining but comes in a wonderfull (and IMO only minimally used- ie. worn-) condition. It should be noted that these orange-piped Waffen-SS EM-type shoulderstraps are very desirable and are not that often offered for sale. Simply a very attractive and/or fully textbook 'Waffen-SS-Feldgendaremerie'-shoulderstrap: too bad that it is only a single piece!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) 'cyphered', officers'-type shoulder- board, as was intended for a: 'Leutnant eines Artillerie-Lehrabteilungs' This is a neat - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) 'cyphered', officers'-type shoulderboard as was executed in the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for a: 'Leutnant eines Artillerie-Lehrabteilungs' (or: leutnant and presumably instructor who served within an artillery-related-, schooling-regiment ie. unit), that comes in an overall nice- (albeit IMO minimally used ie. tunic-removed-) condition. The board - which is executed in the 'smooth'-like- and/or bright-red-coloured wool (aka 'moleskin'-wool) - measures approximately 10,7 cms. in length and has a silver-greyish-coloured- ie. truly sub-dued 'upperdeck'. The board comes with its (small-sized-) tongue attached and was IMO used as such (as can be seen on the pictures). The board shows a (regular-sized-, neatly golden-toned- and IMO 'Buntmetall'-based-): 'L'-cypher attached: the device is somewhat tarnished and/or stained but is still very nice and/or pronounced (as can be seen on the pictures). Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that the cypher was attached to the board BEFORE it was completely assembled. This particular example originated from a larger cloth- ie. shoulder- strap-collection I recently acquired. Simply an attractive, officers'-type, 'cyphered' shoulderboard that belonged to a: 'Leutnant eines Artillerie-Lehrabteilungs': too bad it is only a single piece!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) 'cyphered', officers'-type shoulder- board, as was intended for a: 'Leutnant eines Nachshub-Lehrabteilungs' This is a neat - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) 'cyphered', officers'-type shoulderboard as was executed in the light-blue- (ie. 'kornblumeblauer'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for a: 'Leutnant eines Nachshub-Lehrabteilungs' (or: leutnant and presumably instructor who served within a transport-related-, driving- ie. schooling-regiment), that comes in an overall nice- (albeit IMO minimally used ie. tunic-removed-) condition. The board - which is executed in the 'smooth'-like- and/or light-blue-coloured wool (aka 'moleskin'-wool) - measures approximately 10,7 cms. in length and has a silver-greyish-coloured- ie. truly sub-dued 'upperdeck'. The board comes with its (small-sized-) tongue attached and was IMO used as such (as can be seen on the pictures). The board shows a (regular-sized-, neatly golden-toned- and IMO 'Buntmetall'-based-): 'L'-cypher attached: the device is somewhat tarnished and/or stained but is still very nice and/or pronounced (as can be seen on the pictures).

Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) 'cyphered', officers'-type shoulder- board, as was intended for a: 'Major des Artillerie-Lehrregiments 1' This is a neat - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) 'cyphered', officers'-type shoulderboard as was executed in the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - a: 'Major des Artillerie-Lehrregiments 1' (or: major who served within artillery related-, training- ie. schooling-regiment, numbered: '1'), that comes in an overall nice- (albeit IMO moderately used ie. tunic-removed-) condition. The board - which is executed in the 'smooth'-like- and/or bright-red-coloured wool (aka 'moleskin'-wool) - measures approximately 11 cms. in length and has a silver-greyish-coloured- ie. sub-dued 'upperdeck'. The board never had a tongue attached and was without doubt intended for usage as a board of the 'sew-in-type' and was IMO used as such (as can be seen on the pictures). The board shows a (regular-sized-, neatly golden-toned- and IMO 'Buntmetall'-based-): 'L'-cypher and '1'-numeral attached: both devices are somewhat tarnished and/or stained but are still very nice and/or pronounced (as can be seen on the pictures). Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that the cypher and numeral were attached to the board BEFORE it was completely assembled. This particular example originated from a larger cloth- ie. shoulder- strap-collection I recently acquired. Simply a very attractive, officers'-type, 'cyphered' shoulderboard that belonged to a: 'Major des Artillerie-Lehrregiments 1': too bad it is only a single piece!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) 'cyphered', officers'-type shoulder- board, as was intended for a: 'Major eines Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs-Lehrregiments' This is a neat - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) 'cyphered', officers'-type shoulderboard as was executed in the golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and worn by! - a: 'Major eines Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs-Lehrregiments' (or: major who served within a cavalry- ie. reconnaisance related-, training- ie. schooling-regiment), that comes in an overall nice- (albeit IMO moderately used ie. tunic-removed-) condition. The board - which is executed in the 'smooth'-like- and/or golden-yellow-coloured wool (aka 'moleskin'-wool) - measures approximately 11 cms. in length and has a silver-greyish-coloured- ie. sub-dued 'upperdeck'. The board never had a tongue attached and was without doubt intended for usage as a board of the 'sew-in-type' and was IMO used as such (as can be seen on the pictures). The board shows a (regular-sized-, neatly golden-toned- and IMO 'Buntmetall'-based-): 'L'-cypher attached: the device is somewhat tarnished and/or stained but is still very nice and/or pronounced (as can be seen on the pictures). Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that the cypher was attached to the board BEFORE it was completely assembled. This particular example originated from a larger cloth- ie. shoulder- strap-collection I recently acquired. Simply an attractive, officers'-type, 'cyphered' shoulder- board that belonged to a: 'Major eines Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs-Lehrregiments': too bad it is only a single piece!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) general-officers'-type shoulder- board, as was executed in golden-/silver toned so-called: 'Cellueon', as was intended for usage by a: 'Generalleutnant des Heeres' The truly attractive shoulderboard - which is constructed from the bright-red- (almost orange-) coloured, 'smooth-type' (ie. moleskin-like-) wool and having the golden-/silver toned- so-called: 'Cellueon'-based upperdeck - comes in an excellent condition overall and is hard to be upgraded: the board was with certainty worn and came as recently found. The board is just a tiny bit 'tarnished' simply caused by decades of storage and/or moderate wear and was with certainty once tunic-attached: some minimal stitching-holes are noticable. The neat shoulderboard - which measures approximately 11,5 cms. in length - comes with a larger-sized-, bright-silver-coloured-, general-officers'-pip period-attached denoting the rank of a: 'Generalleutnant des Heeres' (see pictures). The shoulderboard came without tongue and was clearly intended to be used as a piece of the 'sew-in'-type. It should be noted that all general-officers' shoulderboards can easily be graded 'very scarce'. Too bad that it is only a single example!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) general-officers'-type shoulderboard, as was intended for a general-officer with the rank of: 'Generalleutnant', in overall very nice (ie. minimally used and/or IMO tunic-removed-) condition This is a truly attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless still fairly rarely encountered! - WH (Heeres) general-officers'-type shoulderboard as was intended for - and IMO worn by - a general-officer with the rank of: 'Generalleutnant', in overall very nice (ie. minimally used and/or IMO tunic-removed-) condition. The neat shoulderboard - which shows an 'upperdeck' that is executed in bright-golden- and/or silver-coloured- (ie. later-war-type-) so-called: 'Cellueon' - measures approx. 11 cms. in length and shows a bright-red-coloured- and/or 'smooth'-woolen-based 'underground' as to be expected. The board never had a tongue attached and was thus a piece that was worn as a piece of the 'sew-in-type' (it was with certainty once worn and was clearly 'cut-off' a tunic - see pictures). The board shows a single (and per regulation silver-coloured-) pip attached and was thus intended for a general-officer with the rank of: 'Generalleutnant'. The board shows truly extraordinary detail and is a great example of the employed craftmenship of the days. It is a tiny bit tarnished ie. stained (simply caused by years of storage ie. moderate wear). The piece originates from a private household and was never before in a collection: it was found together with the (equally single-) general-officers'-type shoulderboard which I offer under number 36688: both insignia-pieces belonged to the same army general-officer who kept and/or stored these neat insignia-pieces for decades. Simply a very attractive and/or truly detailed WH (Heeres) general-officers'-type shoulderboard: too bad it is only a single example!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboard, as intended for - and/or worn by! - an: 'Oberst der Generals-Stab' (colonel and general-staff officer) - overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition! This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboard, as was piped in the neat darker-pinkish-red- (ie. 'Karmesinroter') branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or worn by! - an: 'Oberst der Generals-Stab' (or full colonel and/or general-staff officer), in overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn- and/or tunic-removed-) condition. The shoulderboard - which is piped in the neat darker-pinkish-red- (ie. 'Karmesinroter'-) coloured branchcolour was as such intended for an: 'Oberst der Generals-Stab' (or colonel in the general staff). The board has a truly silver-greyish- (ie. sub-dued-) silver-coloured 'upperdeck' and shows two, identical and/or neatly golden-coloured, pips attached. The board - which is sized: 11,4 cms. in length - comes withouth tongue: it was worn as a board of the 'sew-in'-type. The board shows some moderate wear and/or age and still shows the signs of having been once tunic-attached. Simply an attractive and desirable, 'high-ranked' WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboard that is executed in one of the more scarcely encountered branchcolours of the: 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) officers'-type, 'cyphered' shoulderboard, piped in the bright-red-coloured branchcolour as intended for a: 'Leutnant der Artillerie-Truppen u. Waffenoffizier' - overall very nice condition! This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) officers'-type, 'cyphered' shoulderboard, as piped in the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as intended for - and most certainly worn by! - a: 'Leutnant der Artillerie-Truppen u. Waffenoffizier' (or lieutnant and/or artillery weaponry-officers), in overall nice (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-) condition. The board - which is executed in the smooth-woolen-based material - has a truly bright-silver-coloured 'upperdeck' and comes mounted on its functional (small-sized-) tongue as issued and/or worn. The board shows a neatly golden-coloured, 'crossed-canons'-cypher attached, denoting that the officer served as an artillery weaponry-officer ie. lieutnant (or: 'Leutnant der Artillerie-Truppen u. Waffenoffizier'). The piece shows some moderate age and/or wear and shows only minimal staining. Simply an attractive WH (Heeres) officers'-type, 'cyphered' shoulderboard that was intended for usage by a: 'Leutnant der Artillerie-Truppen u. Waffenoffizier': too bad that it is only a single piece!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres), early- (ie. even pre-war-) period, 'M36'-type (rounded-style-) 'cyphered'-, NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for an: 'Unteroffizier des Infanterie-Regiments 16' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres), early- (ie. even pre-war-) period, 'M36'-type (rounded-style-) 'cyphered'-, NCO-type shoulderstrap, as piped in the neat white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or worn by! - an: 'Unteroffizier des Infanterie-Regiments 16' (or junior-sergeant who served within the infantry-regiment numbered '16'), in overall nice, albeit moderately used ie. worn-, condition. The shoulderstrap - which is approximately 11,8 cms. sized in length - has the 'standard-type' and/or slightly lighter-toned albeit still green-coloured-, smooth-woolen-based 'upperdeck' and has as stated above the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured - and/or woolen-type piping attached. The strap shows the neat (machine-embroidered by means of so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei'-) '16'-numerals (which are executed in the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured wool as to be expected): moreover, does it show the silver-coloured- and/or early-pattern NCO-braid atttached, denoting the soldiers'-rank of: 'Unteroffizier'. The strap - which comes mounted on its functional tongue - shows as stated above some moderate usage and/or wear (some minor staining and/or dust is visible and/or present). It should be noted that all 'cyphered'-pattern shoulderstraps can be easily regarded 'fairly scarce'. This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. It should furthermore be noted that the: 'Infanterie-Regiment 16' is deemed of additional interest amongst many collectors: its troops were heavingly involved in the execution of 'Fall Gelb' (in which operation that took place in May 1940 the Netherlands were occupied by the Germans). In any case an attractive and/or early- (ie. pre-) war-period-, neatly 'cyphered' and 'Heeres'-related NCO-type shoulderstrap that was intended for an: 'Unteroffizier des Infanterie-Regiments 16'!

The strap shows the neat (machine-embroidered by means of so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei'-) '7'-cypher (which is executed in the bright-pink- ie. 'rosa-roter'-coloured wool as to be expected). Moreover, does it show the (early-pattern- and/or silverish-coloured-) NCO-braid attached, denoting the NCOs' rank of: 'Unteroffizier'. The strap - which never had a tongue and that was clearly worn as a piece of the 'sew-in'-type - shows as stated above some moderate usage and/or wear (some minor staining and/or dust is visible and/or present). It should be noted that all 'cyphered'-pattern shoulderstraps can be easily regarded 'fairly scarce'. This particular example originated from a private household and was never before part of a collection: it was found together with the other single-pieced PZ-Jäger strap I offer under number: 39212.

Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres), officers'-type shoulderboard, as was intended for - and clearly worn by! - an: 'Oberst eines Panzer-Grenadiere-Regiments' This is an attractive - and in this particular branchcolour scarcely encountered, albeit regrettably single - WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboard, as piped in the neat bright-green- (ie. 'wiesengrüner'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and worn by! - an: 'Oberst eines Panzer-Grenadiere-Regiments' (or full colonel that served within or even commanded a rifle-regiment), that comes in an overall nice (albeit used ie. tunic-removed-), condition. The neat shoulderboard - which is constructed from the bright-green- (ie. 'wiesengrüner'-) coloured- and 'smooth-type'- (ie. moleskin-like-) wool - is in an excellent condition overall but shows the clear signs of having been worn and/or moderately used. The fairly 'dull'- ie. sub-dued appearance of the 'upperdeck' is fully present and/or preserved, making this IMO a board that was probably intended for usage on a 'regular' front-used tunic. The board is just a bit 'tarnished' by normal age and/or minimal wear. The board - which measures approximately 10,8 cms. in length - shows two (golden-toned albeit tarnished- and/or fully matching-) pips attached. The board never had a tongue: it is of the 'sew-in'-type and was IMO carefully tunic-removed. This interesting shoulderboard was recently found at a private household in Germany and was never before in a collection: it belonged to an: 'Oberst eines Panzer-Grenadiere-Regiments' (who most certainly shortly wore and stored it for decades). Simply a very attractive and fairly high-ranked 'Heeres', officers’-type shoulderboard in a hard to encounter 'Waffenfarbe': too bad it is only a single piece!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Luftwaffe) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap as executed in 'HBT'-material and piped in golden-yellow, as worn by a: 'Soldat der Flieger o. Fallschirmtruppen' - nice (albeit used- ie. worn-) condition! This is a very nice - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Luftwaffe) enlisted-mens’-type shoulderstrap as entirely executed in reed-green-coloured 'HBT'-material and which is piped in the golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) branchcolour, as was intended for ie. worn by a: 'Soldat der Flieger o. Fallschirmtruppen' (or soldier within the paratrooper- or pilot-troops), in overall nice albeit clearly used ie. worn-, condition. The strap is in all facets a 'text-book'-example and is in a nice condition overall: it was clearly worn and/or tunic-removed. The strap does not show any defaults whatsoever: just some truly minimal staining caused by decades of storage and/or moderate wear is noticable and/or present. The strap measures approximately 10,5 cms. in length and comes naturally mounted on its functional tongue. The strap shows the neat golden-yellow coloured and/or desirable 'silk-like'-type piping and was (IMO) intended for usage on the 3/4-model, camouflaged 'Felddivisionen'-smocks. Simply a nice occasion to acquire a neat example of the rarely encountered 'Soldat der Flieger o. Fallschirmtruppen' shoulderstrap as executed in reed-green coloured 'HBT'-cloth: too bad it is only a single piece!
Attractive - albeit single - WH (Heeres), IMO early-war period (ie. 'M36'-model- ie. rounded-pattern-) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for an: 'Uffz. u. Feldwebel-Anwärter des Geb.Jäger-Rgts. 13' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single - WH (Heeres), IMO early-war period (ie. 'M36'-model and/or rounded-style-) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and clearly worn by! - an: 'Unteroffizier u. Feldwebel-Anwärter des Jäger- o. Gebirgsjäger-Regiments 13' (or: junior-sergeant and/or: sergeant-candidate who served within a mountain-troop-related unit- ie. regiment, numbered: '13'), in overall very nice (albeit IMO moderately used ie. worn-) condition. The neat strap - which has entirely been executed in darker-green-coloured and/or smooth-woolen-based wool and that is IMO a privately-purchased example - has the neat green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured branchcolour- (and/or woolen-type-) piping attached (which is a tiny bit stained). The strap which measures approximately 10,7 cms. in length, comes mounted on its functional tongue and is as stated in a nice, ie. fully 'text-book' condition overall. The strap shows the (shiny) silverish-coloured NCO-braid and a single (regular-sized-) pip attached and does show a double- and horizontally-mounted and/or: firmly affixed- and/or: yellowish-silver-coloured 'Lasche' (ie. rank slip-on) attached (see pictures). Moreover, does the strap show (zinc-based- and smaller-sized-) '1' and/or: '3' numerals attached (see pictures). The strap shows - as stated above - only moderate usage ie. wear (just some minimal age, dust and/or staining is visible and/or present: it also shows some glue-remains on its back, caused by having been glued into an album once - see pictures). This particular example originated from a larger cloth- ie. shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. Simply an attractive WH (Heeres), IMO early-war period (ie. 'M36'-model- ie. rounded-pattern-) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: 'Unteroffizier u. Feldwebel-Anwärter des Jäger- o. Gebirgsjäger-Regiments 13': too bad that it is only a single piece!
Attractive - albeit single but nevertheless scarcely encountered - WH (Luftwaffe) 'cyphered', officers'-type shoulderboard, as was intended for usage by a: 'Leutnant der Reserve u. Waffenoffizier' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely encountered! - WH (Luftwaffe) 'cyphered', officers'-type shoulderboard, as was (dual!) piped in the neat bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour having a darker-blue secondary branchcolour, as was intended for a: 'Leutnant der Reserve u. Waffenoffizier' (or: reserve-lieutnant and/or member within one of the LW weapon-/armour-schools), that comes in an overall nice- (albeit IMO used- and/or carefully tunic-removed-), condition. The attractive shoulderboard - which is regular-sized and measures approximately: 10,7 cms. in length - is piped in the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour and has a darker-blue secondary branchcolour (denoting: Reserve-status). The board has a truly 'shiny'- and/or silver-coloured- 'upperdeck' (as to be expected) and shows the neat bright golden-coloured-, IMO 'Buntmetall'-based- and/or Latin-styled so-called: 'W'-'cypher' period-attached (denoting the officers' status of: 'Luftwaffe Leutnant der Reserve u. Waffenoffizier'). The board - which comes mounted on its typical smaller-sized tongue - only shows minimal age and is a tiny bit stained ie. dirty (IMO caused by having been moderately worn and/or stored as such for decades). Simply an attractive shoulderboard that belonged to a: 'Leutnant der Reserve u. Waffenoffizier': ideal to store in any shoulderboard-collection. I deem that this attractive and/or neatly 'cyphered' 'Flak- artillerie'-related shoulderboard is accordingly priced!
Attractive - albeit single but nevertheless scarcely encountered! - Waffen-SS-type shoulderstrap as was intended for usage by an: 'SS-Unterscharführer' (ie. junior-sergeant) who served within the: 'SS-Nachrichtentruppen' The attractive - and actually carcely encountered albeit regrettably single - Waffen-SS-type shoulderstrap - which comes naturally mounted on its original, typical SS-shaped-, smaller-sized tongue as is more often encountered on genuine Waffen-SS shoulder- straps - has the bright-yellow (ie. 'zitronengelbener'-) coloured and/or 'silk-like'-type piping attached, denoting that it was intended for usage by an: 'SS-Unterscharführer' (ie. junior-sergeant) who served within the: 'SS-Nachrichtentruppen' (or signal-troops). The back of the strap (which measures 11 cms. in length as is more often encountered) is executed in field-grey-coloured wool, as is more often observed with genuine Waffen-SS-type shoulderstraps. The piece shows some minimal age, wear and/or minimal staining as to be expected (see pictures). The strap shows the bluish-grey-coloured (ie. sub-dued-) NCO-braid attached, denoting the NCOs rank of: 'SS-Unterscharführer' (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply very attractive and of course 100% genuine, 'Waffen-SS Nachrichten-Truppen'-shoulderstrap: too bad that it is only a single example!
Attractive - albeit single! - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) EM-type shoulderstrap that comes with its period-attached: 'Übershube' attached, as was intended for a: 'Soldat des Kraftfahr-E.- und Ausb.-Abts. 12' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the neat light-blue- (ie. 'kornblumenblauer'-) coloured branchcolour and that comes with its period-attached-, so-called: 'Übershube' (ie. slip-on) attached, as was intended for a: 'Soldat des des Kraftfahr-Ersatz- und Ausbildungs-Abteilungs 12' (or: soldier who served within the transport-related replacement- and/or schooling unit- ie. regiment numbered: '12'), in an overall nice (IMO only moderately used-) condition. The neat shoulderstrap - which is piped in the desirable light-blue- (ie. 'kornblumenblauer'-) coloured branchcolour - measures approximately 11,5 cms. in length and has the neat (and desirable) 'silk-like'-type piping attached. The strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and was IMO moderately used and/or worn. The strap comes naturally mounted on it functional tongue and shows no defaults nor real damage but does show minimal age, wear and/or staining as mentioned above. The strap came with a single- (field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based-) so-called: slip-on (ie. 'Übershube') attached, bearing the (Roman-styled-) signification: 'XII' (as executed in equally light-blue-coloured-, so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei' done in wool- ie. linnen-based thread as can be seen on the pictures). This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. In any case an attractive and/or mid- (ie. later-) war-period- and/or: 'Heeres'- ie. 'Nachshub'-related enlisted-mens'-type- shoulderstrap that was intended for - and/or used by! - a: 'Soldat des Kraftfahr-Ersatz- und Ausbildungs-Abteilungs 12'!
Attractive - albeit single! - IMO mid-war period-, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) EM-type shoulderstrap as was intended for a: 'Soldat eines Kraftfahr-Abteilungs o.

The strap comes naturally mounted on it functional tongue and shows no defaults nor real damage but does show minimal age, wear and/or staining as mentioned above. Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that this example shows the remains of a once-attached- (also bright-yellow-coloured-) so-called: 'regimental-indicator'-stripe (ie. 'Lasche'): this was, however, once removed only leaving the remains (as can be seen on the pictures). This particular example originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. In any case an attractive and/or mid- (ie. later-) war-period- and/or: 'Heeres'- ie.

Attractive - and actually fairly scarcely encountered! - hand-embroidered example of an officers'-pattern so-called: 'Polizei' (ie. police) arm-eagle, in overall very nice, albeit moderately used and/or clearly tunic-removed condition This is an attractive - and actually fairly scarcely encountered! - neatly hand-embroidered example of an officers'-pattern, so-called: 'Polizei' (ie. police) arm-eagle, as was worn on the various reed-green-coloured 'Polizei'-tunics, that comes in a very nice, albeit moderately used and/or clearly tunic-removed-, condition. The eagle - which truly shows great pronounced detail - is a neat example of the high-standard of the hand-embroidery used in the period: the craftmanship is simply stunning and/or very pronounced (see pictures). The piece - which is hand-embroidered with various kinds of silver-coloured braid on a typical police-green-coloured- and/or woolen-based background - still retains its black-coloured and/or paper-based 'backing' (see pictures). The eagle shows as stated some moderate wear and/or age and still shows the stitching-remains (ie. holes) with which it was once tunic-attached. Simply a very attractive and surely decorative 'Polizei'-related-item that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually never before encountered! - 'NS-Frauenschaft'-related sports-shirt-badge, being a medium-sized- (and/or maker-marked!) example as executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern This particular 'NS-Frauenschaft'-related sports-shirt-badge was without doubt intended to signify membership within the German Womens' Association (or in German-language: 'NS Frauenschaft') and was never used- nor shirt-attached: it can easily be graded 'virtually mint-/unissued' and came 'as straightly cut-off the role'. The example on offer here is a medium-sized version that measures 10,5 x 10 cms. - see pictures. The badge is neatly woven in black-coloured linnen on a white-coloured (and also linnen-based-) background and is a clear example of the neat 'BeVo-weave'-technique (as stated does the badge also show an interwoven makers'-mark that reads: 'BeVo - Wuppertal' - see pictures). Simply an attractive - and actually never before encountered! - 'NS-Frauenschaft'-related sports-shirt badge: I am convinced that this is a scarcely encountered example!
Attractive - and actually never before seen! - WWI-related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie'), as was issued to commemorate: 'Den gefallenen d. Grosshzgl. Hess. Garde Drag.Rgts. No.23 ........Darmstadt - 1-2-X-1927' - overall nice (albeit issued-) condition! This is an attractive - and actually never before encountered nor seen! - WWI-related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie'), as was issued to commemorate: 'Den gefallenen d. Grosshzgl. Hess. Garde Drag.Rgts. No.23 U.d. Grosshzgl. Hess. Leib Dragoner Rgts. No.24 - 1914-1918 - Darmstadt - 1-2-X-1927', in overall nice (albeit issued ie. worn-) condition. The detailed badge - which is executed in greyish-silver coloured so-called 'tin-based'-material (some sort of tin) shows extraordinary detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished. The neat piece is void of a makers'-mark and shows a crypte with above that a burning fire with under this the text as mentioned above. It comes on its (functional-) pin-/catch set-up. Simply a very nice - and most certainly not that often encountered and/or early-period (ie. 1927-dated!) - WWI-related 'tinnie'!
Attractive - and actually not that easilly encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine) aluminium-based- and/or: matching, so-called: 'pith-helmet' shield-set, both pieces neatly maker-marked with the 'G.B.' makers'-logo and date: '1941' This is a truly very attractive WH (Kriegsmarine): 'DAK' (ie. 'Deutsches Afrikakorps') aluminium-based- and/or: fully matching, so-called: 'pith-helmet' shield-set, both pieces being neatly maker-marked on the back with the makers’-logo ie. date: 'G.B. 41', in overall very nice (IMO virtually mint-/unissued-), condition. Both - very detailed and/or pronounced - pieces retain their original (three) completely present - and/or also aluminium-based and/or very fragile! - pins and are IMO in fully stonemint-/ie. unissued condtion (the set was most certainly never before mounted on a pith-helmet and was kept as such for decades). The black- (ie. red- and/or golden-) painted areas (on both shields) do truly show most of their original colour, but do also show some minimal scratches and/or paint-loss (IMO simply caused by decades of storage ie. handling only). Actually, are these genuine pith-helmet shields - having their original and/or undamaged aluminium-based prongs! - not that easy to encounter. Simply a nice opportunity to acquire an original 'DAK' (or 'Afrikakorps') so-called 'pith-helmet' shield-set as was produced by the 'G.B.'- (ie. 'Gustav Brehmer'-) company!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - 3-pieced-, so-called: 'DLV' (ie. 'Deutsche Luftsport Verband') ID-document (ie. 'Mitgliedsausweis'-) and/or: document-/photo-grouping that belonged to the 'DLV'-member, named: Hubert Poetsch This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - 3-pieced-, so-called: 'DLV' (ie. 'Deutsche Luftsport Verband') ID-document (ie. 'Mitgliedsausweis'-) and/or: document-/photo-grouping that belonged to the 'DLV'-member ie. 'Rottenführer', named: Hubert Poetsch, born in 1903. The grouping comprises of a neat, bright-green-coloured- and carton-based so-called: 'DLV' (ie. 'Deutsche Luftsport Verband') ID-document (ie. 'Mitgliedsausweis'-) which bears the (low!) membership-number: '240' and that is nicely filled-in (by a machine) and accordingly ink-stamped (see pictures). It was issued to Poetsch on 1 February, 1935 and never had a picture attached but comes with various (glued-in) stamps (upto September 1938) as can be seen on the pictures. Next to this ID-document, the grouping holds a neat, albeit small- (ie. 7,5 x 5 cms.-) sized portrait-picture of Poetsch wherein he is seen wearing an N.S.F.K.-tunic (easily recognisable from the 'fliegender Mensch'-breast-badge - see pictures). The last item in the grouping concerns some sort of recognition-document (ie. 'Beglaubigung') wherein it is stated that the 'N.S.F.K.-Rottenführer' Poetsch attended a sports-event (on 18 June, 1939). I deem this is an interesting, small-sized- ID-document (ie. 'Mitgliedsausweis'-) and/or: document- ie. photo-grouping that belonged to a member that served in two of the lesser known, airforce-related, TR-organisations!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - colourfull, SA- (ie. 'Sturmabteilungen'-) related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie'), as was issued to commemorate the: 'SA-Wehrwettkampftage 1939' This is a truly attractive - and actually not that easily ie. truly scarcely encountered! - SA- (ie. 'Sturmabteilungen'-) related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie'), as was executed in beige-/white-coloured- and neatly coloured-, 'resin'-based material as was issued to commemorate a specific SA-rally ie. sports-gathering entitled: 'SA-Wehrwettkampftage 1939', in overall very nice (albeit issued ie. moderately worn-) condition. The very detailed and/or pronounced badge shows extraordinary detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished: almost all its green-, red- , golden and/or brown-coloured finish has been nicely preserved (see pictures). The piece shows an eagle-device holding a sword and the: 'SA'-logo and provincial shield (see pictures). The badge - which shows the makers'-designation: 'R.Sieper u. Söhne - Lüdenscheid' as well as the 'RzM M9/25'-designation - on its back - naturally comes mounted on its (functional-) pin-/catch set-up. Simply a very nice - and most certainly not that often encountered! - SA-related 'tinnie'!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - early-pattern-, WH (Heeres) specific cocarde as executed in white-coloured linnen as was intended for usage on the: 'Pz'-beret (ie. 'Panzerschutzmütze') as was executed in so-called: 'BeVo'-weave I recently uncovered five attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - examples of the early-pattern-, WH (Heeres) specific cocarde as were executed in white-coloured linnen on a black-coloured (and also-linnen-) background, as was intended for usage on the: 'Panzer'-beret (ie. 'Panzerschutzmütze') as was executed in so-called: 'BeVo'-weave pattern, all five pieces in overall very nice (ie. mint-/unissued-), condition. The pieces originate from the left-overs from an old tailor-shop and were simply never used (ie. nor beret-attached-) as can be seen on the pictures. The pieces - also known in German language as: 'Kokarden für Panzerschutzmütze' - show some minimal age- and/or staining caused by storage only but come in an overall wonderful and/or fully undamaged, condition. The asking-price is naturally per single piece. Simply a nice a great occasion to acquire an attractive and actually scarcely encountered piece of German cap-insignia: great to restore a Pz-beret or to be stored in any insignia-collection!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - example of an early- (ie. 1935-pattern-) so-called: 'DLV' (ie. 'Deutsche Luftsport Verband') zinc- ie. steel-based belt-buckle, being a non-maker-marked specimen This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - example of an early- (ie. 1935-pattern-) so-called: 'DLV' (ie. 'Deutsche Luftsport Verband') zinc- ie. steel-based belt-buckle, being a non-maker-marked specimen showing a 'first model' so-called: 'drooped winged'-eagle-device. The piece is IMO only minimally used and/or worn and does show some minimal age, stainig and/or wear (some minimal staining is visible on the catch only as can be seen on the pictures). The zinc-ie. steel based buckle - that originates from a private household in Germany where it was recently found - retains a fully preserved (black-painted) swastika and fully preserved silver-finish (see pictures) and retains great, pronounced detail overall. Simply a very attractive and with certainty scarcely encountered- and 'early-period and/or Luftwaffe-related' so-called: 'Deutsche Luftsport Verband'-belt buckle!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - HJ- (ie. 'Hitlerjugend'-) related 'tinnie', as issued to commemorate the: 'Aufmarsch der HJ - Gebiet 13 Hessen-Nassau - 25-26 August 1934' - overall nice (albeit issued ie. worn-) condition! This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - HJ- (ie. 'Hitlerjugend'-) related 'tinnie', that was issued to commemorate a specific rally ie. named the: 'Aufmarsch der HJ - Gebiet 13 Hessen-Nassau - 25-26 August 1934', in overall nice (albeit issued ie. moderately worn-) condition. The detailed badge - which is executed in greyish-toned metal (IMO tin) - truly shows extraordinary detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished. The piece is unmarked and has lost some (ie. all) of its silver-coloured finish but comes on its (functional) long-sized pin. Simply a very nice - and most certainly not that often encountered - youth-related 'tinnie'!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - neatly maker- (ie. '110'-) marked example of a black wound-badge (or: 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Schwarz') that comes in clearly used- and/or worn, condition The attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - wound-badge does show moderate- ie. heavy wear and/or aging and has lost a fair bit of its original, black-coloured finish: it does show, morover, moderate wear, age and/or staining as to be expected. The woundbadge - which IMO dates from a later-war production and that was recently found at a private household in Germany - is as stated neatly maker-marked with the (unusually seen!) makers'-signification: '110' on its back (see pictures) signifying that it deals with a piece that was produced by maker (ie. 'Hersteller') named: 'Otto Zappe' based in the town of Gablonz a/d Neckar. Of course, are the (regular- ie. thin-shaped- and/or copper-based-) pin and/or (typical) catch (-set-up) fully functional and of course present. This piece has never been cleaned nor polished: it shows some minimal dust and/or staining as to be expected. Simply an attractive black WB that was clearly used and/or worn!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - NSB (or: 'Nationaal Socialistische Beweging', being the Dutch WWII-period-, pro-German party) colourfull period-booklet entitled: 'Distinctieven der Beweging' This is a very attractive example of not that easily encountered, NSB (or: 'Nationaal Socialistische Beweging', being the Dutch WWII-period-, pro-German party) colourfull period-booklet entitled: 'Distinctieven der Beweging', that comes in a very nice- (ie. virtually mint- ie. unissued-,) condition. This medium- (ie. 15,5 x 10 cms.-) sized- and soft-covered booklet retains all its 32 pages and is full of colourfull prints of all the various badges and insignia (plus detailed descriptions, ranks- ie. functions and explanation!) of this movement. The booklet - which was published somewhere in 1942/1943 and that is naturally compiled in the Dutch language - shows some minimal signs of having been used (one flaw is present on its back) but is for the rest in a wonderfull condition overall (truly almost mint!) and is simply very hard to be upgraded. Simply a very nice and scarcely seen NSB-related period-publication that is not that often offered for sale!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - resin-based-, NSDAP-related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie' or: 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen'), as was issued to commemorate the: 'NSDAP-Kreistag 1939' held in Magdeburg This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - NSDAP-related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie' or: 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen'), as was issued to commemorate the: 'NSDAP-Kreistag 1939' held in the town of Magdeburg, that comes in an overall very nice (albeit issued ie. moderately worn-), condition. The badge was executed in beige-/white-coloured- and neatly golden-coloured-, 'resin'-based material and was issued to commemorate a specific NSDAP-rally ie. gathering entitled: 'NSDAP-Kreistag 1939'. The detailed and/or pronounced badge shows nice detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished: it retains most of its golden-coloured finish (see pictures). The piece shows the head of Charles the Great as mounted on a mobile swastika-sign (see pictures). The badge - which shows the makers'-designation: 'R. Sieper u. Söhne - Lüdenscheid' as well as the 'RzM M9/25'-designation on its back - naturally comes mounted on its (functional-) pin-/catch set-up. Simply a very nice - and most certainly not that often encountered! - NSDAP-related 'tinnie'!

'tinnie' or: 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen'), as was issued to commemorate the: 'Wettkampftage der SA-Gruppe Niedersachsen' held in 1935 This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - aluminium-based- and silver-coloured-, SA- (ie. 'Sturmabteilungen'-) related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie' or: 'Veranstaltungs- Abzeichen'), being a non-maker-marked example, as was issued to commemorate the: 'Wettkampftage der SA-Gruppe Niedersachsen' held in held in the town of Hannover, from 6 to 8 September 1935, in overall very nice (albeit issued and/or worn-) condition. The detailed badge - which is executed in greyish-silver coloured aluminium shows extraordinary detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished. The neat piece depicts a shield depicting the (two-headed horse-sign) with above the SA-logo (ie. device) with thereunder the text: 'Wettkampftage der SA-Gruppe Niedersachsen'. It comes naturally mounted on its (functional) pin-/catch set-up. Simply a very nice - and most certainly not that often encountered - SA-related 'tinnie'!

'tinnie' or: 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen'), as was issued to commemorate the: 'Wettkampftage der SA-Gruppe Niedersachsen' held in 1936 This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! – aluminium-based- and silver-coloured-, SA- (ie. 'Sturmabteilungen'-) related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie' or: 'Veranstaltungs- Abzeichen'), being a neatly maker- (ie. 'Lehmann & Wundenberg'-) marked example, as was issued to commemorate the: 'Wettkampftage der SA-Gruppe Niedersachsen' held in held in the town of Braunschweig, from 26 to 27 September 1936, in overall very nice (albeit issued and/or worn-) condition. The detailed badge - which is executed in greyish-silver coloured aluminium shows extraordinary detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished. The neat piece depicts a shield depicting a sword-sign flanked with oakleaves and SA-logo (ie. device) surrounded by the text: 'Wettkampftage der SA-Gruppe Niedersachsen - 26. 27. September, 1936 - Braunschweig'. It comes naturally mounted on its (functional) pin-/catch set-up. Simply a very nice - and most certainly not that often encountered - SA-related 'tinnie'!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - small-sized-, period photo, depicting a WH (Heeres) 'Panzer'-soldier in front of his tank (being IMO a tank of the type: 'Panzerkampwagen III') This is an attractive, small-sized-, period photo (only sized: 9,5 x 6,5 cms.) depicting a WH (Heeres) 'Panzer'-soldier in front of his tank (being IMO a 'Panzerkampwagen III') as being transported on a train, in overall nice condition. The picture shows a WH Heeres 'Panzer' soldier (I deem officer) wearing his black-coloured, 'wrap-around'-tunic and/or pants. The picture was apparently sent as a war-souvenir and shows a date and/or text on its back that reads: 'Im Osten, 10-6-1944 - Meiner lieben Hilde zum Andenken an Deine.... ' (hard to read the name - see pictures). Simply a very attractive, WH (Heeres) 'Panzer'-related picture!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - so-called: 'Leistungs- abzeichen des Standschützenverband Tirol-Vorarlberg', being a (high-quality-produced-) so-called: 'Gauleistungsabzeichen in Gold für Pistole - 1943' This is a very attractive - and actually not that easily encountered and truly nicely enamelled! - so-called: 'Leistungsabzeichen des Standschützenverband Tirol-Vorarlberg', being a (IMO high-quality-produced-) so-called: 'Gauleistungsabzeichen in Gold für Pistole - 1943', that comes in a minimally worn-, albeit fully undamaged, condition. The badge - which is void of any makers'-designation as more often - comes naturally mounted on its (fully functional- and/or totally unaltered-) pin-/catch set-up (see pictures). It retains a fully undamaged, golden-toned finish and has as stated above an undamaged, enamelled surface. These attractive badges were awarded (in similar form and/or model) from 1941 onwards and are actually not that commonly encountered. The extensive series is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken Abzeichen-Katalog' wherein this particular example is referenced under the unique number: 'A61U' and given an estimated value of 220 Eu. This example originates from a German flea-market and was never before in a collection. IMO did I price this attractive and/or nicely preserved-, 'high-quality-produced' example of an: 'Gauleistungsabzeichen in Gold für Pistole - 1943' accordingly!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - so-called: 'Leistungs- abzeichen des Standschützenverband Tirol-Vorarlberg', being a so-called: 'Gauleistungsabzeichen in Gold für KK-Gewehr - 1944' This is a very attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - so-called: 'Leistungsabzeichen des Standschützenverband Tirol-Vorarlberg', being a so-called: 'Gauleistungsabzeichen in Gold für KK-Gewehr - 1944', that comes in a minimally worn-, albeit fully undamaged, condition. The badge - which shows a makers'-designation on the pin-/cach set-up that reads: 'C. Poellath - Schrobenhausen' as more often - comes naturally mounted on its (fully functional- and/or totally unaltered-) pin-/catch set-up (see pictures). It retains a fully undamaged, golden-toned finish and has an undamaged, red- ie. green-coloured- and painted surface. These attractive badges were awarded (in similar form and/or model) from 1941 onwards and are actually not that commonly encountered. The extensive series is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken Abzeichen-Katalog' wherein this particular example is referenced under the unique number: 'A61K' and given an estimated value of 150 Eu. This example originates from a German flea-market and was never before in a collection. IMO did I price this attractive and/or nicely preserved 'high-quality-produced' example of an: 'Gauleistungsabzeichen in Gold für KK-Gewehr - 1944' accordingly!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - WH (Heeres) lapel-pin (ie. 'Traditions- o. Erinnerungsabzeichen') as was worn by members of the '90. Panzergrenadier-Division' (aka: 'Sardinienschild') This is a very attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - WH (Heeres) lapel-pin or campaign-shield (ie. 'Traditions- o. Erinnerungsabzeichen') as was worn by members of the '90. Panzergrenadier-Division' (aka: 'Sardinienschild'), in overall very nice (and IMO moderately used- and/or worn-) condition. The lapel-pin - which comes as recently found at a private household depicts the map of the island of Sardinia with a diagonal sword across mentioning the towns of Olbia and Cagliari and comes in an overall nice, albeit moderately used- and/or worn-, condition: it was made of silver-toned metal and retains most of its silverish-finish - see pictures. The piece has a slightly darkened age-patina but has IMO never been cleaned and retains its detailed appearance. These 'semi-official' pins were worn on both the 'M43-type'-caps and/or civil ie. military attire. The neat pin - which comes on its functional pin-/catch-set-up - is also figured in the Heering-Hüsken lapel-pin-catalogue, wherein it is given a unique number: 9841A and an estimated value of 380 Euro. As possibly known have these pins a 'semi-official status': these pins were, however, awarded with an accompanying, specific award-document and were also appropiately entered in both: 'Wehrpass' and/or 'Soldbuch'. Simply a very attractive and desirable 'Panzergrenadiere'-related item that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine) 'standard-type'- ie. 'standard-issued' towel (ie. 'Handtuch'), as was executed in fairly 'roughly-styled' linnen-based cloth and bearing the interwoven text: 'Kriegsmarine' This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine) 'standard-type'- ie. 'standard-issued', towel (ie. 'Handtuch'), as was executed in fairly 'roughly-styled' linnen-based cloth and bearing the interwoven text: 'Kriegsmarine', in overall very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued-) condition. The linnen-based towel - which is approximately sized: 96 x 53,5 cms. and does show two horizontally mounted- and/or darker-blue-coloured stripes - was possibly issued but simply never used and still retains a somewhat 'hardened touch': it just shows some minimal aging ie. staining simply caused by decades of storage only. Simply a very nice - and most certainly not that often seen! - personal naval-equipment-item: great to store in a soldiers' bread-bag or to be used in any equipment set-up!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine) 'standard-type'- ie. 'standard-issued' towel (ie. 'Handtuch'), as was executed in fairly 'roughly-styled' linnen-based cloth and bearing the interwoven text: 'Kriegsmarine' This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine) 'standard-type'- ie. 'standard-issued', towel (ie. 'Handtuch'), as was executed in fairly 'roughly-styled' linnen-based cloth and bearing the interwoven text: 'Kriegsmarine', in overall very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued-) condition. The towel - which is approximately sized: 96 x 53,5 cms. and does show two horizontally mounted- and/or bright-red-coloured stripes - was possibly issued but simply never used and still retains a somewhat 'hardened touch': it just shows some minimal aging ie. staining simply caused by decades of storage only. Simply a very nice - and most certainly not that often seen! - personal naval-equipment-item: great to store in a soldiers' bread-bag or to be used in any equipment set-up!

I found three (fully indentical!) examples: the price is naturally intended per single towel. Simply a very nice - and most certainly not that often seen! - personal naval-equipment-item: great to store in a soldiers' bread-bag or to be used in any equipment set-up!
Attractive - and actually not that often encountered! - lapel-pin (ie. 'Lehrwarte- abzeichen des DRL bzw. NSRL') as was intended for usage by a trainer (ie. 'Lehrwart') of the sports-association: 'NS Reichsbund für Leibesübungen (NSRL)' This is an attractive - and actually not that often encountered! - lapel-pin (ie. 'Lehrwarte- abzeichen des DRL bzw. NSRL') as was intended for usage by a trainer (ie. 'Lehrwart') of the sports-association: 'NS Reichsbund für Leibesübungen (NSRL)', that comes in an overall nice (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. The pin on offer here comes mounted on its original pin and is a non-maker-marked specimen that has a nice, minimally darkened age-patina and was never cleaned nor polished (see pictures). An identical badge is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken' lapel-pin-catalogue, wherein it is given the unique reference-number: 8757C and given a estimated value of 150 Eu. Simply an attractive and not that often seen sports-related lapel-pin!
Attractive - and actually only once before encountered! - 'NS-Frauenschaft'-related sports-shirt-badge, being a medium-sized- (and/or maker-marked!) example as executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern This particular 'NS-Frauenschaft'-related sports-shirt-badge was without doubt intended to signify membership within the German Womens' Association (or in German-language: 'NS Frauenschaft') and was never used- nor shirt-attached: it can easily be graded 'virtually mint-/unissued' and came 'as straightly cut-off the role'. The example on offer here is a medium-sized version that measures 10,5 x 10 cms. - see pictures. The badge is neatly woven in black-coloured linnen on a white-coloured (and also linnen-based-) background and is a clear example of the neat 'BeVo-weave'-technique (as stated does the badge also show an interwoven makers'-mark that reads: 'BeVo - Wuppertal' - see pictures). Simply an attractive - and actually only once before encountered! - 'NS-Frauenschaft'-related sports-shirt badge: I am convinced that this is a scarcely encountered example!
Attractive - and actually quite scarcely encountered! - HJ/BDM/DJ (ie. 'Hitlerjugend' etc.) blue-/white-striped- (ie. 'blaumelliertes'-) and/or twisted so-called: 'leaders-lanyard' (ie. 'Führerschnur') These neat coloured lanyards were employed as an indication of both grade- and/or function and saw usage within the HJ ('Hitlerjugend'), BDM ('Bund Deutscher Mädel') and/or DJ ('Deutsches Jungvolk'). The neat darker-blue-/white-striped- (ie. so-called: 'blaumelliertes'-) example on offer here comes still mounted on its (typical shaped- and/or silver-chromed-) 'clip' and was as such intended to signify the rank/function of: 'Kamerad- schaftsführer' upto 'Oberkameradschaftsführer' (within the HJ etc.). The neat lanyard - which measures approximately 38 cms. from top to end - shows minimal wear ie. usage: it was IMO only moderately worn ie. used and was kept as such for decades. Simply a very attractive, youth-related 'leaders-lanyard' (ie. 'Führerschnur') that is almost impossible to upgrade!
Attractive - and actually quite scarcely encountered! - metal-based cap-badge, as intended for usage on a visor-cap of the: 'Nationalsozialistischer Kriegsopfer- versorgung' (ie.: 'N.S.K.O.V.') - overall nice condition! This is a truly attractive - and actually quite scarcely encountered! - metal-based ie. chromed-steel-based cap-badge, as intended for usage ie. wear on a visor-cap (ie. 'Schirmmütze') of the: 'Nationalsozialistischer Kriegsopferversorgung' (or: 'N.S.K.O.V.'), in overall nice (albeit moderately used and/or cap-removed-) condition. The - very detailed and/or pronounced - badge shows some regular wear but has no defaults whatsoever (it has never been cleaned nor polished and still retains its black-painted cross in its centre). The badge - which is not maker-marked - still retains its three (still fully functional) copper-based prongs and can naturally easily serve to complete a N.S.K.O.V.-visor-cap. Surely nice and unusually encountered cap-badge!
Attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - SA- (ie. 'Sturmabteilungen'-) related armbadge, as was intended for a: 'NSKK Sanitäts-Unterführer o. Mann' (ie. 'Feldscher'), as executed in neat 'BeVo'- weave-pattern This is a truly attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - SA- (ie. 'Sturmabteilungen'-) related armbadge, as was woven in silver-coloured- (so-called: BeVo 'flat-wire'-pattern-) braid on a greenish-brown-coloured background, as was intended for an: 'SA Sanitäts-Unterführer o. Mann' (- ie. 'Feldscher'), as was executed in neat 'BeVo'-weave 'flat-wire'-pattern, that comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly used- ie. shirt-removed-), condition. The nicely woven insignia is only sized: 6,3 x 4 cms. and comes as stated in a clearly used- ie. shirt-removed- condition: it is neatly 'pre-folded' but misses most of its paper-based-, so-called: 'RzM'-etiket as is more often seen (the remains are, however, still present and/or visible - see pictures). Simply an attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - SA- (ie. 'Sturmabteilungen'-) related armbadge: only the second such neat badge I ever had on offer!
Attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - tropical-pattern, WH (Heeres) side-cap eagle- and dito cocarde insignia-set (ie. 'Mützenadler u. Kokarde für Schiffchen'), both pieces as executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern This is an attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - tropical-pattern, WH (Heeres) side-cap eagle- and dito cocarde insignia-set (ie. 'Mützenadler u. Kokarde für Tropen-Schiffchen'), both pieces as executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern-, both examples as executed on a typical-, tan-coloured- (and/or also linnen-based-) background, in overall very nice ie. virtually mint-/unissued-) condition. These attractive tropical insignia-sets were used by members of the: 'Deutsches Afrikakorps' (DAK) and were intended for the side-caps but also saw usage on the scarcely encountered so-called: 'M41-type'- field-caps (or: 'Einheitsfeldmützen'). Later on in the war these sets saw usage on the Balkan- and/or Mediterranean war-fronts. This neat set comes in a virtually mint-/unissued condition and comes IMO 'as straightly cut-off the role': it does show some minor age and/or staining simply caused by years of storage only. Simply a rarely encountered tropical-pattern, WH (Heeres) side-cap eagle- and dito cocarde insignia-set!

Attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine) neatly hand-embroidered-, officers'-type visor-cap-eagle, as was specifically intended for usage by the various naval administrative-officials (ie. 'Beambten der Kriegsmarine') This is a truly attractive - and/or neatly detailed and actually rarely encountered! - example of a neatly hand-embroidered, WH (Kriegsmarine) officers'-type, visor-cap-eagle (ie. 'Adler für Schirmmütze') as was executed in silver-coloured- and/or 'braid'-based material on a darker-blue-coloured background, as was specifically intended for usage by the various naval administrative-officials (ie. 'Beambten der Kriegsmarine'), that comes in a very nice (ie. virtually mint- ie. unissued- and/or never cap-attached-), condition. This example - having a 'wingspan' of approximately 7,8 cms. - is nicely hand-embroidered using various tones of (bright and truly shiny-) silver-toned 'braid'-based material on a darker-blue-coloured (and/or woolen-based-) background: moreover, does it show some highlighted areas as executed in (bright-) silver-coloured thread (see pictures). This example was as stated above never used- nor cap-attached and is void of any damage nor staining ie. corroded areas. The eagle shows a black-coloured-, linnen-based 'backing' as more often observed (see pictures). Simply a very attractive example of the 'Extra Klasse'-quality that can naturally easily be attached to any 'Kriegsmarine'-visor-cap or to be simply kept in any eagles'-collection!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - 'standard-issued'-type, WH binoculars 'Dienstglas' 6 x 30 so-called: 'anti-movement flap' (or: 'Tragelasche') as executed in black-coloured leather, being a non-marked example This is a little piece of WH-equipment that is often missing in an equipment set-up: a so-called leather-based, 'anti-movement flap' (or: 'Tragelasche') as was fitted for usage on the standard-pattern WH binoculars called: 'Dienstglas - 6 x 30', as executed in fairly shiny, brownish-black-coloured leather, being a non-marked example, in overall very nice and/or only moderately used- ie. worn, condition. The neat piece is as stated IMO only moderately used and shows some regular traces of having been used: the piece is, however, totally undamaged and fully souple: it comes thus in a still fully functional condition. The flap comes with both its two original once-blackened- (and/or copper-based-) 'studs' in place and can easily be re-mounted to any binocular-pair. Simply a nice little piece of equipment that would surely look great if re-mounted on a pair of 6 x 30 (or even a 10 x 50) binoculars: a nice example of a fairly hard to find WH equipment-piece!

Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - 3-pieced RAD (ie. 'Reichsarbeits- dienst') so-called: 'Traditions-Mützenabzeichen'-grouping, as was intended for a member who served within the: 'Arbeitsgau XXX' This is a neat - and actually scarcely encountered! - 3-pieced RAD (ie. 'Reichsarbeits- dienst') so-called: 'Traditions-Mützenabzeichen'-grouping, as was intended for a member who served within the: 'Arbeitsgau XXX' (= Bayern-Hochland - Ostmark), all three pieces in overall very nice condition. The interesting grouping comprises of an RAD-related photo-ID-card (ie. 'ArbeitsDank-Mitglieds-Karte') that was issued in October 1936 to the: 'Arbeitsmann' Otto Seiffenberger, born on 18 September 1915. This card (which is folded sized: 15 x 10,5 cms.) shows a neat (uniform)photo of Seiffenberger, wearing his earthen-brown-coloured RAD-tunic (as can be seen on the pictures). The card is fully filled-in and accordingly ink-stamped: it, moreover, shows some glued-in 'ArbeitsDank'-stamps (as can be seen on the pictures). Next to this card the group holds a (never before seen!) A-5-sized award-document (ie. 'Verleihungsurkunde') stating that Seiffenberger is entitled to wear the: 'Traditions-Mützenabzeichen des Arbeitsgaues XXX'. This neat document bears an illustration of the badge and was issued to Seiffenberger on 20 March 1936. Last but not least does the grouping holds a fully undamaged example of this RAD (or: 'Reichsarbeitsdienst') so-called: 'Traditions-Mützenabzeichen', as was intended for (and with certainty worn by) a member who served within the region: 'Arbeitsgau XXX' (being situated in the province Bayern-Hochland as situated in the Ostmark). The metal badge (executed in colourfull enamel on a copper-based background as to be expected) depicts the famous Edelweiss-flower and comes mounted on its functional pin-/pin-catch set-up. The piece is clearly maker- (ie. 'C. Poellath - Schrobenhausen'-) marked and shows a: 'Ges.Gesch.'-patent-pending marking on its back (see pictures). This badge is also figured in the Heering-Hüsken lapel-pin-catalogue, wherein it is given a unique number (3805JL) and an estimated value of: 180 Eu. The badge on offer here and was IMO never cleaned nor polished: it still retains a very nice- and/or minimally tarnished age-patina and is totally void of any enamel-damage. Simply a very attractive and with certainty not that often encountered (semi-official-) RAD-'Traditions-Mützenabzeichen'-grouping that is IMO priced according to its comparative rarity and/or desirability!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - D.A.F.- (ie. 'Deutsches Arbeitsfront') specialist armbadge, as was executed in neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern, as was intended for a: 'D.A.F.-Übungswart' This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - D.A.F.- (ie. 'Deutsches Arbeitsfront') specialist armbadge, as was executed in neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern, as was intended for a: 'Übungswart' (being some sort of instructor- ie. trainer), in overall very nice- (albeit moderately used- ie. worn- and/or: tunic-removed-) condition. The badge on offer here - showing a swastika-sign surrounded by the D.A.F. 'Zahnrad'-sign ie. logo with below that the text: 'Übungswart' - is beautifully executed in so-called 'BeVo'-weave pattern and is backed with: bright-red-coloured- (and/or: linnen-based-) cloth (see pictures). The badge - which measures 9,5 x 8,5 cms. - is clearly worn and shows some normal wear, age and/or staining. Simply an attractive and most certainly scarcely encountered arm-badge!

Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - early-period-, HJ- (ie. N.S.D.A.P.-) related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie' or: 'Veranstalstungsabzeichen'), as was issued to commemorate the: 'I. N.S.-Reichsjugendtag 1932' This is a truly attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - early-period-, HJ- ('Hitlerjugend') (ie. N.S.D.A.P.-) related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie' or: 'Veranstalstungs- abzeichen') that was issued to commemorate the: 'I. N.S.-Reichsjugendtag 1932' held in the town of Nürnberg, being a neatly maker- (ie. 'F. Hoffstätter - Berlin'-) marked example, in overall very nice (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-) condition. The very detailed and/or pronounced badge - which is executed in silver-toned metal (IMO tin ie. silvered copper-) - truly shows extraordinary detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished. The (as stated neatly maker- and/or: 'Ges.Gesch.'-marked-) crest-shaped piece depicts a sword-illustration with swastika with above that the text: : 'I. N.S.-Reichsjugendtag 1932' and comes on its (functional) pin-/catch set-up. Simply a very nice - and most certainly not that often encountered and/or truly early-period - HJ- ('Hitlerjugend') (ie. N.S.D.A.P.-) related 'tinnie'. I deem that I have priced this rarely seen example according to its desirability and/or truly nicely preserved condition!

The very detailed and/or pronounced badge - which is executed in silver-toned metal (IMO tin ie. silvered copper-) - truly shows extraordinary detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished: it is still somewhat tarnished by age. The crest-shaped piece (which is as stated above neatly maker- and/or: 'Ges.Gesch.'-marked-) depicts a sword-illustration with swastika with above that the text: 'I. N.S.-Reichsjugendtag 1932' and comes on its (functional) pin-/catch set-up: moreover, is this piece 'personalised' by the recepient: it bears the engraved name: 'Schütz' (or alike). Simply a very nice - and most certainly not that often encountered and/or truly early-period - HJ- ('Hitlerjugend') (ie. N.S.D.A.P.-) related 'tinnie'. I deem that I have priced this rarely seen example according to its desirability and/or truly nicely preserved condition!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCO-) type armband as was intended for usage by a member who served within the 'Sicherheitsdienst'- (ie. 'SD'-) related so-called: 'Schützmannschaften' (ie. 'Schuma') This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCO-) type armband as was intended for usage by a member who served within the 'Sicherheits- dienst'- (ie. 'SD'-) related so-called: 'Schützmannschaften' (ie. 'Schuma'), being a piece that comes in a very nice (ie. IMO only minimally used- ie. worn-), condition. The piece is executed in typical green-coloured linnen and shows the text: 'Im Dienste der Sicherheitspolizei' printed in black as to be expected. The armband is a full-length- (ie. 32 cms.) sized example and has neatly 'finished borders' (executed in black-coloured-, linnen-based thread) as usual. It should be specifically mentioned that these notorious 'Schützmannschaften' (ie. 'Schuma') were staffed with men entirely coming from the Baltic states and had a very bad reputation. In any case is this a sound opportunity to acquire a neat SD-related armband for an IMO competitive price!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCO-) type cap-badge as was intended for usage by a member who served within the 'Sicherheitsdienst'- (ie. 'SD'-) related so-called: 'Schützmannschaften' (ie. 'Schuma') This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCO-) type cap-badge as was intended for usage by a member who served within the 'Sicherheits- dienst'- (ie. 'SD'-) related so-called: 'Schützmannschaften' (ie. 'Schuma'), being a piece that comes in a very nice (ie. virtually mint and/or never cap-attached-), condition. The piece is executed in greyish-silver-(ie. almost white-) coloured linnen on a black-coloured- (and also linnen-based-) background and is a typical example of the famous 'BeVo'-weave pattern. The patch came as 'straigthly cut-of the role' and shows the interwoven-, diamond-shaped swastika-sign (as executed in silverish-white-coloured linnen - see pictures). The patch is as stated above never used- nor cap-attached but does show some minimal age and/or staining (simply caused by decades of storage only). It should be mentioned that these notorious 'Schützmannschaften' (ie. 'Schuma') were staffed with men entirely coming from the Baltic states and had a very bad reputation. In any case is this a sound opportunity to acquire a neat SD-related cap-badge for a competitive price!

'SD'-) related so-called: 'Schützmannschaften' (ie. 'Schuma') I recently encountered three - fully identical and actually scarcely encountered! - examples of the enlisted-mens'- ie. NCO-type-, cap-badge, as was intended for usage by a member who served within the notorious 'Sicherheitsdienst'- (ie. 'SD'-) related-, so-called: 'Schützmannschaften' (ie. 'Schuma'), all three pieces in a very nice (ie. virtually mint and/or never cap-attached-), condition. The pieces are executed in greyish-silver-coloured linnen on a black-coloured- (and also linnen-based-) background and are typical examples of the famous 'BeVo'-weave pattern. The patches came as 'straigthly cut-of the role' and show the interwoven-, diamond-shaped swastika-sign (as executed in silverish-grey linnen - see pictures). All three patches were as stated above never used- nor cap-attached but do show some minimal age and/or staining (simply caused by decades of storage only). The asking-price is naturally intended for one single cap-badge. These notorious 'Schützmannschaften' (ie. 'Schuma') were staffed with men entirely coming from the Baltic states and had a very bad reputation. In any case is this a sound opportunity to acquire a scarcely encountered SD-related cap-badge for a competitive price!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - example of a female-related- ie. 'RADwJ' (or: 'Reichsarbeitsdienst der weiblichen Jugend' or: womens' section of the German labour-service) sports-shirt badge This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - example of a female-related- ie. 'RADwJ' (or: 'Reichsarbeitsdienst der weiblichen Jugend' or: womens'-section of the German labour-service) sports-shirt badge, being an example as executed in neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern, that comes in a very nice (ie. virtually mint-) condition. The fairly large-sized badge - sized: 11 x 10 cms. - is neatly executed in the 'BeVo'-weave technique and just shows some minimal staining caused by years of storage: it mint have well been issued but was never worn (nor shirt-attached). It comes as straightly cut-off the role and is a tiny bit wrinkled. Simply an attractive and scarcely encountered so-called: 'RADwJ'-related sports-badge that will be hard to be upgraded!

'RADwJ' (or: 'Reichsarbeitsdienst der Weiblichen Jugend' or: womens' section of the German labour-service) sports-shirt badge, being an example as executed in neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern, that comes in a very nice (ie. virtually mint- ie. unissued-) condition. The fairly large-sized badge - sized: 11 x 10 cms. - is neatly executed in the 'BeVo'-weave technique and just shows some minimal staining caused by years of storage. It comes as straightly cut-off the role and is a tiny bit wrinkled. Simply an attractive and scarcely encountered so-called: 'RADwJ'-related sports-badge that will be hard to be upgraded!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - example of a maker- (ie. 'JFS - 42'-) marked-, WH (Heeres and/or Waffen-SS) 'Krim' campaign-shield, that is still mounted on its original field-grey-coloured backing This is an attractive example of a neatly maker- (ie. 'JFS - 42'-) marked-, example of a WH (Heeres and/or Waffen-SS) so-called: 'Krim' campaign-shield, that is still mounted on its original field-grey-coloured backing and that comes in a very nice- (ie. mint- and/or never tunic-attached-), condition. The shield comes in a truly wonderful condition and was IMO never worn nor used. It comes naturally complete with its metal-based back-plate and has all its four prongs in place: moreover, does it still retain its (typical) protective black-coloured- and paper-based backing-paper in place (having the 'white-inked' stamp that reads: 'JFS - 42' on its back as is usually encountered by this type of shield, implying that is a typical shield produced by the: 'Josef Feix' company). The shield - which is non-converse-shaped as more often - retains most of its original-, darker-coloured- and 'glossy' finish ie. bronze-like appearance: it shows, however, a few stains but was never cleaned nor polished. Simply an attractive and desirable example that was surely issued but never worn. It should be noted that these marker-marked and 'minty' examples are hard to come by: almost impossible to upgrade this specimen!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - example of a zinc-based lapel-pin (ie. so-called: 'Traditions- o. Erinnerungsabzeichen') depicting an elk, surrounded by the text: '1943 Eismeerfront 1944' that comes period-mounted on a leather-based etui This is a truly attractive - and decorative and with certainty scarcely encountered! - example of a zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based lapel-pin (ie. so-called: 'Traditions- o. Erinnerungsabzeichen') depicting an elk (ie. andler), surrounded by the text: '1943 Eismeerfront 1944' that comes period-mounted on a genuine leather-based etui (IMO intended for storing a pay-book or: 'Soldbuch'), that comes in an overall very nice (and only moderately used- and/or worn-), condition. The neat badge belonged with certainty to one of the 'Infanterie'- ie. 'Gebirgsjäger'-divisions within the: 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' that most certainly served in Northern Europe (I have certainly seen the badge before but could not find a reference yet stating which specific division ie. regiment used this particular badge). The neatly constructed circular pin has an approximate diameter of 3,5 cms. - depicts an elk- ie. andler-symbol, surrounded by the text: '1943 Eismeerfront 1944' - and is constructed from silvered (zinc-based) metal: it is a bit dirty but retains a truly nice age patina (some scratching and/or wear is however visible, IMO simply caused by having been worn and/or used). The - maker-marked - piece shows a makers'-abbreviation that reads: 'S.K.' and comes on its four functional metal-based prongs (with which it is mounted on the leather-based etui (which is sized: 15,5 x 11,5 cms.). Both badge- and/or: etui show some regular wear and tarnish (but was most certainly never cleaned nor polished). These 'semi-official' pins were worn on both uniform, cap and/or civil attire. A nice - and most certainly rarely encountered! -'Traditions- o. Erinnerungs- abzeichen': I deem that I have priced this attractive item accordingly!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - example of a: 'DRK'(ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz' or German red-cross) side-cap eagle, to be worn on the specic, greyish-blue-coloured DRK side-caps (ie. 'Schiffchen') This is a very attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - example of a: 'DRK'(ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz' or German red-cross) side-cap eagle, to be worn on the specic, greyish-blue-coloured DRK side-caps (ie. 'Schiffchen'), that comes in an overall very nice- (IMO virtually mint- ie. unissued- and/or never cap-attached-), condition. This is one of those tiny cap-eagles that is almost impossible to find when needed. The patch on offer here was as stated never cap-attached and is (as per regulation) nicely backed with (undamaged) light-grey-coloured wool (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece shows some minimal age ie. staining, simply caused by having been stored as such for decades. Simply an attractive DRK-related cap-badge that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - female-related, officers'-pattern-, 'RADwJ' sleeve-badge ie. 'Abzeichen des Reichsarbeitsdienst der weiblichen Jugend', as executed in neat 'flat-wire' BeVo-weave pattern This is a very attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - female-related, officers'-pattern-, so-called: 'RADwJ' sleeve badge (ie. 'Abzeichen des Reichsarbeitsdienst der weiblichen Jugend'), as was executed in neat so-called: 'flat-wire'-BeVo-weave pattern, in overall nice (and IMO never used- nor tunic-attached-), condition. The badge is neatly silver-coloured ie. executed in the neat 'flat-wire'-weave pattern having a typical chocolate-brown-coloured background and was intended for a female RADwJ-officer: it was IMO issued but never worn and shows some minimal staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Of additional interest is the fact that this example shows the (Roman-styled-) numerals: 'XI' (signifying that it was an example that was worn by a member of the 11th region/department ie. 'Bezirk'). The badge is not maker-marked (as is more commonly encountered: most of the copied examples show a full and interwoven logo whereas this example is of course a garuanteed orginal example). It should be noted that excellent copies of these badges do exist: this is naturally a genuine-, period example that originated from a German flea-market. Simply a very nice and truly scarcely encountered, officers'-type RADwJ arm-badge!

The badge is neatly woven in the 'BeVo-weave'-pattern having a typical chocolate-brown-coloured background and was intended for a female RADwJ-staff-member: it was clearly worn and shows some minimal staining and was neatly period-trimmed (ie. carefully pre-folded as can be seen on the pictures). Of additional interest is the fact that this example shows the (Roman-styled-) numerals: 'XIX' (signifying that it was an example that was worn by a member of the 19th region ie. department ie. 'Bezirk'). The badge is not maker-marked (as is more commonly encountered: most of the copied examples show a full and interwoven logo whereas this example is of course a garuanteed orginal example). Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that this example still retains 5 (period-attached-) metal snaps (attached for easy removing ie. attaching it to a tunic (as can be seen on the pictures). It should be noted that excellent copies of these badges do exist: this is naturally a genuine-, period example that originated from a German flea-market.

'Veranstaltungsabzeichen', being a non-maker-marked example, showing the text: 'Aufmarsch der HJ - Gebiet 13 - Hessen-Nassau - 25.-26.8.1934' The silver-toned- (albeit tarnished-) badge (ie. 'tinnie' or: 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen') is executed in silver-coloured and IMO tin-based metal: it shows some normal wear and/or moderate age but has IMO never been cleaned nor polished (it is still a bit dirty but has maintained a nice and as stated above somewhat tarnished age-patina). The badge comes mounted on its functional pin and shows some minimal age ie. staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The 'tinnie' is very detailed and has regrettably lost most of its silver-coloured finish (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece shows an illustration of some houses with below that the text: 'Aufmarsch der HJ - Gebiet 13 - Hessen-Nassau - 25.-26.8.1934' and/or is sub-titled: 'Tag der Hunderttausend': next to this it also shows the HJ-symbol ie. 'Raute'. Simply an attractive example of this desirable and/or with certainty sought-after- and/or fairly early-period HJ-related so-called: 'HJ-Veranstaltungsabzeichen'!

The very detailed and/or pronounced badge - which is executed in silver-toned metal (ie. silver-toned zinc ie. 'tin') - shows extraordinary detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished. The piece shows a 3 houses with below that a so-called: 'HJ-Raute' (with above and below the a.m. text). The badge - which is void of a makers-mark - comes naturally mounted on its (functional) pin-/catch set-up. Simply a very nice - and most certainly not that often encountered!- and/or truly early (ie. 1934 dated!) youth-related 'tinnie'!

The neat red- - (ie. 'roter'-) coloured and/or twisted example on offer here comes still mounted on its (typical shaped- and/or silver-chromed-) 'clip' and was as such intended to signify the youth rank/function of: 'Bannführer' (within the HJ etc.). The neat lanyard - which measures approximately 31,5 cms. from top to end - shows minimal wear ie. usage: it was IMO hardly worn ie. used and was kept as such for decades. Simply a very attractive, youth-related 'leaders-lanyard' (ie. 'Führerschnur') that is almost impossible to upgrade!

The neat lanyard - which measures approximately 42 cms. from top to end - shows simply no usage: it was IMO never worn nor used (it is in a virtually mint-/unissued condition) and was kept as such for decades. Simply a very attractive, youth-related (and fairly high-ranked!) 'leaders-lanyard' (ie. 'Führerschnur') that is almost impossible to upgrade!

The scarcely encountered lapel-pin shows some minimal wear and/or age (mainly dirt and/or minimal staining but has truly no enamel damage whatsoever - see pictures). The golden-toned pin shows a: 'Ges.Gesch.' patent-pending marking and bears also the number: '4' on its back. The pin - which has naturally a functional pin ie. catch set-up - is also figured in the Heering-Hüsken lapel-pin catalogue, wherein it is given a unique reference-number (9653F) and an estimated value of 100 Eu. Simply an attractive TR-lapel-pin that is IMO accordingly priced!

The piece is void of any makers-mark ie. logo and comes with both its (functional) prongs in place.

Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - nicely enamelled, so-called: 'Feuerwehr-Ehrenzeichen der II. Stufe', that comes mounted on its original, full-length piece of ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') as issued ie. worn This is a truly very attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - nicely enamelled and/or: colourfully executed, so-called: 'Feuerwehr-Ehrenzeichen der II. Stufe' (or: fire-brigade honorary medal of the second class), that comes mounted on its original-, full-length piece of ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt'), in overall very nice (IMO only minimally used- ie. worn-) condition. The medal shows IMO some minimal ie. moderate wear and/or: staining (but was IMO never cleaned nor polished). It was period-mounted on its (confectioned- and/or: full length-) piece of ribbon (which measures in total 14 cms. in length). The - truly very detailed- and/or pronounced! - award has a minimally tarnished age-patina and shows a fully undamaged-, fairly glossy- and/or: neatly enamelled, surface without showing any damage (see pictures). The piece just shows some truly minimal tarnish caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage. Simply a not that often encountered TR-period, honorary award that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - OT- (ie. 'Organisation Todt'-) related-, printed other-ranks armband (ie. 'Ärmelband') entitled: 'OT', as worn by most OT enlisted-staff, that comes in a very nice (IMO mint- ie. unissued-) condition This is a truly attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - OT- (ie. 'Organisation Todt'-) related-, printed-, other-ranks' armband (ie. 'Ärmelband') entitled: 'OT', as worn by most OT enlisted-staff, that comes in a very nice (IMO almost mint- ie. unissued-), condition. The orange-brown-coloured- (and linnen-based-) armband (which was normally worn above- ie. in conjunction with a regular swastika-type armband) is a printed example: it shows the 'OT'-characters printed in black (as can be seen on the pictures). The armband comes in full-length condition and measures (folded) approximately 35 cms. in length: it has been 'off-factory' sewn-together and was (IMO) never worn nor used. The piece shows some truly minimal staining simply caused by decades of storage only. It should be noted that these attractive armbands were also worn by the various European OT-volunteers. Simply a very nice - and actually scarcely observed! - 'Organisation Todt'-related that is almost impossible to be upgraded!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - pair of enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps as was intended for usage by a member who served within the 'Sicherheitsdienst'- (ie. 'SD'-) related so-called: 'Schützmannschaften' (ie. 'Schuma') This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - pair of enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps as was piped in the green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by a member who served within the notorious 'Sicherheitsdienst'- (ie. 'SD'-) related so-called: 'Schützmannschaften' (ie. 'Schuma'), that come in an overall very nice (and IMO only minimally used- ie. worn-) condition. The pointed-styled straps - which measure approximately 13 cms. in length each - have (as to expected) the black-coloured-, woolen-based 'upperdecks' and do show the interwoven, diamond-shaped swastika-signs (as executed in silverish-grey linnen - see pictures). The neat pair comes mounted on its functional tongues and does show the desirable, 'silk-like'-type piping (as always). The pair is IMO only minimally used and does show some minimal age, wear and/or staining. These notorious 'Schützmannschaften' (ie. 'Schuma') were staffed with men entirely coming from the Baltic states and had a very bad reputation. In any case is this a sound opportunity to acquire a scarcely encountered pair of minimally used SD-related shoulderstraps!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe) bright-green-piped-, NCO-type collar-patches (ie. 'Kragenspiegel') as was intended for usage by a member within one of the various units within the: 'Hermann Göring-Division' The neat collar-patches are executed in the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured (and/or smooth- ie. 'felt-like'-type-) wool and are additionally 'piped' with bright-green- (ie. 'hell- grüner'-) coloured- and/or: rayon-type piping as more often encountered (see pictures). Both patches show only moderate wear and were carefully tunic-removed (see pictures). Both tabs show four (identical- and zinc-based-) silver-greyish-coloured- gulls/ie. wings period-attached and are nicely 'backed' with the brownish-yellow-coloured- (and/or buckram-based-) material, as is more often encountered. The 'Kragenspiegel'-set was recently found at a private household in Germany and was carefully tunic-removed: some stitching- and/or thread-remains are still present and/or visible (as can be seen on the pictures). It should be noted that these genuine, 'HG-Division'-related LW-collar-tabs can be easily graded 'fairly scarce'. Simply a very attractive collar-tab pair that will be very hard to be upgraded!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - police- (ie. 'Preussische Polizei'-) related-, silver-coloured- (ie. nickle-chrome-based-) belt-buckle, being a non-maker-example The buckle is IMO clearly used and/or worn but still has maintained a fairly shiny, silverish- and/or typical 'nickle-chromed'-finish, without showing any real defaults nor damage (it has IMO never been cleaned nor polished and shows some dust and/or minimal (rust-)staining). The piece is totally void of any makers'-mark-signification (as is more often encountered). These attractive police-related belt-buckles saw only limited usage in the thirthies (ie. during the period of the so-called: 'Weimar Republik'). I deem that I have priced this attractive and with certainty unusually seen 'Polizei'-belt-buckle accordingly!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - Spanish- (ie. WH-Heeres-) related-, metal-based 'Falange'-breast-badge, as was intended for the Spanish volunteers serving within the 'Blue Division' (ie. 'Division Azul') This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - Spanish- (ie. WH-Heeres-) related-, metal-based so-called: 'Falange'-breast-badge, as was intended for the Spanish volunteers serving within the 'Blue Division' (ie. 'Division Azul'), that comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly used- ie. worn-), condition. The silver-coloured badge (showing two red-coloured areas) measures approximately 3.8 cms. in height and depicts the five, upward-positioned arrows (as can be seen on the pictures). It is totally void of a makers-signification and comes mounted on its (functional- and/or unaltered-) pin- ie. pin-catch construction. It is void of any damage and does show some minimal age ie. staining caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage. The piece originates from a private household in Germany and was never in collectors'-hands. Simply an attractive - and with certainty! - scarcely encountered piece of (IMO) Spanish-produced volunteer-related breast-insignia: only the first such attractive example I ever had on offer!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - truly worn- and/or tunic-removed WH (Heeres) armshield entitled: 'Armenien', as was intended for a volunteer ie. NCO who served within the: 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. within the 'Armenisches Legion' The shield on offer here was with certainy worn and was (with certainty carefully!) tunic-removed: it was nicely trimmed and/or folded and still shows the signs of having been moderately worn (see pictures). It is void of any damage and does show some minimal age ie. staining caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage. These - original - 'official'- and/or German-produced, 'Armenien'-arm-shields as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. of German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo') are considered scarce: truly worn examples even more so, something that IMO merits my asking price. Simply a very attractive piece of German-made volunteer-related- cloth-insignia: only the first such truly 'worn- and/or tunic-removed'-example I ever had on offer!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - Waffen-SS sport-shirt-patch, as was executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern and still retaining its period-attached 'RzM'-etiket This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - Waffen-SS sport-shirt-patch, as was executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern and still retaining its period-attached 'RzM'-etiket, that comes in an overall very nice- (IMO virtually mint- ie. unissued-), condition. The patch (ie. 'Brustabzeichen') is executed in the neat so-called 'BeVo'-weave technique and still retains its period-attached 'RzM'-etiket ('A-Stück'): it is a 'text-book' example of this particular patch. The badge is a tiny bit stained ie. dirty, simply caused by decades of storage only. Simply a very nice - and actually scarcely encountered! - piece of SS sports-related insignia that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH ('Heeres- Flak'-related-) 'Soldbuch' (ie. ID-booklet) as was issued for the: 'Obergefreiten' Herbert Rudolph born in 1921, member within the unit: 'Heeres-Flak-Art.Ers.Abt. 279' This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH ('Heeres- Flak'-related-) 'Soldbuch' (ie. ID-booklet) being a second-issue (ie. 'Zweitschrift') as was issued for the: 'Obergefreiten' named: Herbert Rudolph born in 1921, member within the (scarcely seen!) unit: 'Heeres-Flak-Art.Ers.Abt. 279' (or: army anti-aircraft ie. artillery-related, replacement unit numbered: '279'), that comes in an overall very nice (ie. not damaged nor denazified and/or fully filled-in-), condition. The typical, 'standard-issue'-type ID-booklet (sized only: 15 x 10,2 cms.) is in an overall very nice and/or fully complete condition having all its 24 pages present and in-place: it has not been 'damaged' whatsoever and is in an almost 'minty' albeit with certainty issued- condition. This 'Zweitschrift-SB' was issued on 10 April 1944 as can be noted from the entry on page 2 - see pictures). The ID-booklet shows a neat uniform-photo of Rudolph (attached by means of copper rings) and shows all the regular entries and/or ink-stamps as to be expected (as can also be seen on the pictures). He served in various ('Heeres- Flak'-) units something that can easily be deducted from the SB: the detailed entries were most certainly mentioned in his first issued SB (which was most certainly lost and replaced by the example presently on offer). Of specific interest is naturally the fact that Rudolph was also awarded the: 'Heeres-Flak-Abzeichen' on 25 January 1944 (something that is also noted on the SBs page 22 - see picture): it should be noted this is a truly scarcely encountered award-entry! The SB came together with 2 loose papers (ie. documents) resp. entitled: 'Laufzettel' and/or 'WH-Fahrschein' (which were both stored in the SBs back as more often seen). Rudolphs' unit (the: 'Heeres-Flak-Art.Ers.Abt. 279') was an interesting 'Heeres-Flak' unit that belonged to the: '25. Panzer-Division' and that saw action near the town of Sewastopol (on the Krim ie. Crimea) in Mai 1944 and the 'Weichselbogen' (end of 1944). Simply a very attractive - and most certainly! - not that easily encountered and/or truly nicely preserved - WH ('Heeres- Flak'-related-) 'Soldbuch'!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Heeres ie. Waffen-SS) 'Kuban'-campaign-shield that comes mounted on its original field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based backing This is a truly attractive - and in this hardly used- ie. worn condition actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Heeres ie. Waffen-SS) so-called: 'Kuban'-campaign-shield that comes mounted on its original, field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based backing, in overall very nice (ie. virtually mint- and/or (IMO) never tunic-attached-), condition. The - highly detailed and/or pronounced! - shield comes naturally complete with its original metal-based back-plate and still retains all four of its original prongs (being attached to the sides of the shield as is more often encountered with original 'Kuban'-campaign-shields - see pictures). The piece still retains its period-applied-, black-coloured- and/or paper-based 'backing-cover' (see pictures). This example has stunning detail and was presumably issued but simply never worn nor tunic-attached. The shield truly retains almost all of its somewhat glossy appearance (showing some darkened tarnish and has IMO never been cleaned: it does show some minimal rust-staining as is visible in the swastika-area - see pictures). It should however be noted that IMO the (original) 'Kuban'-campaign-shields are a bit underestimated in value and rarity. Good - and original! - examples of the 'Kuban'-shield are actually not that easily encountered. I deem that this very attractive example is accordingly priced!

'Alter-art' visor-caps and are also seen worn on 'high-quality' officers' side-caps ie. 'Schiffchen' (side-caps). The eagle is executed in silver-grey- ('flatwire'-type) thread on a darker-green-coloured, background. The cap-eagle is in a truly mint ie. unissued condition and cannot be upgraded. This eagle - which is a truly rare example - originates from an old collection of fine, original cap-eagles, I recently acquired. It should be noted that these single 'flatwire-type' cap-eagles are almost never offered for sale. A very nice eagle that IMO cannot be upgraded!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine) officers'-type, hand-embroidered cap-eagle as was executed in golden-toned braid, as was specifically intended for usage on the darker-blue-coloured visor-caps (ie. 'Schirmmützen') This is a very attractive - and/or neatly detailed and actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine) officers'- (ie. eventually also NCO-) type, hand-embroidered cap-eagle as was executed in golden-toned braid (and that shows a swastika and roundel as executed in so-called: 'Cellueon'), as was specifically intended for usage on the various darker-blue-coloured visor-caps (ie. 'Schirmmützen'), that comes in an overall nice (IMO clearly once cap-attached- and/or carefully cap-removed-) condition. This example - having a 'wingspan' of approximately 7 cms. and still showing some minimal thread-remains with which it was once cap-attached - is nicely hand-embroidered using various tones of (bright and somewhat shiny-) golden-yellow-toned so-called: braid on a dark-blue-coloured (and/or: woolen-based-) background (see pictures). This example was as stated above once cap-attached but is void of any damage nor staining ie. corroded areas - see pictures. The eagle shows no 'backing' as more often observed (see pictures). Simply a very attractive example of the 'Extra Klasse'-quality that can naturally easily be attached to any 'Kriegsmarine'-visor-cap or to be simply kept in any eagles'-collection!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH-related lapel-pin (ie. ‘Brosche‘), as was intended for a: ‘Wehrmachtsgefolge’, being a larger-sized- and/or neatly maker- (ie. ‘O. Placzeck’-) marked example This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH-related lapel-pin (or: ‘Brosche‘), as was intended for a: ‘Wehrmachtsgefolge’, being a larger-sized- and/or neatly maker- (ie. ‘O. Placzeck - Berlin’-) marked example, in overall very nice (albeit IMO minimally used ie. worn-) condition. The badge is made-out-of bronze-toned metal and shows no damage nor heavy wear whatsoever: it is just a tiny bit dirty caused by regular wear ie. moderate usage. These ‘Wehrmachtsgefolge‘ (or 'WG’) were by very nature not regular armed-forces but auxiliaries to them. In fact, the only true auxiliary forces were the ‘Wehrmachtsgefolge‘ (or armed forces auxiliaries) which were those formations or organisations that were not a part of the armed forces, but which served such an important support role that they were given protection under the Geneva Convention. The piece is neatly maker-marked: ‘O. Placzeck - Berlin’ on the back and comes on its functional pin-/pin-catch set-up. It is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken'-lapel-pin catalogue, wherein it is given the nr. 9502D and an estimated value of 135 Eu. The badge was never cleaned and has a nice and has a fairly darkened age-patina. As stated is this the larger-sized version (having a approx. diameter of 4 cms.). Simply a very nice and honest example which is not that often offered for sale!
Attractive - and actually unusually encountered! - HJ ('Hitlerjugend'), zinc-based (ie. 'molded-style-') belt-buckle, being a maker- (ie. 'RzM' - 'M4/38'-) marked example This is an attractive - and actually unusually encountered! - HJ ('Hitlerjugend'), zinc-based (ie. 'molded-style-' and/or variant-pattern-) belt-buckle, being a maker- (ie. 'RzM' - 'M4/38'-) marked example, in overall very nice- (ie. IMO unissued and/or virtually mint-/ie. IMO never worn-) condition. The buckle is IMO never worn and still retains extraordinary detail as to be expected. The piece has a typical, silver-zinc coloured- and somewhat 'dull' appearance and has never been cleaned nor polished (it has just acquired some blackened tarnish ie. dirt over the years and shows some minimal scratching caused by uncareful handling or alike). It is naturally stamped with the makers'-signification: 'RzM' - 'M4/38' (as can be seen from the pictures). Simply a very attractive 'variant'-style, youth-related belt-buckle which is actually not that commonly encountered in this zinc-based- ie. 'molded' version!
Attractive - and actually unusually encountered! - HJ ('Hitlerjugend'), zinc-based (ie. 'molded-style-') belt-buckle, being a maker- (ie. 'RzM' - 'M4/72'-) marked example This is an attractive - and actually unusually encountered! - HJ ('Hitlerjugend'), zinc-based (ie. 'molded-style-') belt-buckle, being a maker- (ie. 'RzM' - 'M4/72'-) marked example, in overall very nice- (ie. unissued and/or virtually mint-/ie. IMO never worn-) condition. The buckle is IMO never worn and still retains extraordinary detail as to be expected.

Simply a very attractive 'variant'-style, youth-related belt-buckle which is actually not that commonly encountered in this zinc-based- ie. 'molded' version!
Attractive - and actually unusually encountered! - maker- (ie. '26'-) marked example of a silver wound-badge (or: 'Verwundetenabzeichen in Silber') by the maker: 'B.H. Mayer's Kunstprägeanstalt' This is a truly attractive - and actually unusually encountered! - maker- (ie. '26'-) marked example of a silver wound-badge (or: 'Verwundetenabzeichen in Silber') as was produced by the maker: 'B.H. Mayer's Kunstprägeanstalt', in overall nice (ie. most certainly issued and/or used-) condition. The badge just shows minimal wear ie. age but retains most of its original silver-coloured surface. The badge - which is executed in zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink') - is as stated neatly maker-marked with the makers-signification: '26' on the back (see photos), signifying that it was a piece as produced by the: 'B.H. Mayer's Kunstprägeanstalt' company, based in the town of Pforzheim. Of course, are the (regular- ie. thin-shaped-) pin and/or (molded-) catch (-set-up) fully functional and of course present. This piece has never been cleaned nor polished: it shows some minimal dust and/or staining: it shows a neat age-patina. Simply a very nice and desirable, maker-marked- silver wound-badge by the: 'B.H. Mayer's Kunstprägeanstalt': hard to find a more nicely preserved example!
Attractive - and actually unusually encountered! - WH (Luftwaffe) aluminium-based breast-eagle, as was intended for usage on the white summer-tunics, being a very detailed- albeit non-maker-marked - specimen This is a truly attractive - and in this aluminium-based version actually not that often encountered - item: a WH (Luftwaffe) aluminium-based breast-eagle, as was intended for usage on the white summer-tunics, being a very detailed- albeit non-maker-marked - specimen, that comes in an overall very nice (and IMO only minimally used ie. worn-) condition. The eagle is - as stated - a very detailed example (of the second model) that is constructed of fairly shiny (ie. off-factory polished-) aluminium-based, metal. The eagle - which has naturally a functional pin- and catch(set-up) - has - as stated - great pronounced detail and was IMO never cleaned nor polished. The pin is naturally still fully functional (as can be seen on the pictures). As possibly known are also these breast-eagles regrettably copied (most times being the aluminium ones which are clearly stamped 'A' in the centre on the back): this one is as stated of course a 100% garuanteed original example that originates from a private household and that was never before in any collection. Simply a very decorative - and not that commonly observed - summer-type-, LW breast-eagle that will be impossible to be upgraded!
Attractive - and actually very rarely encountered! - WH (Heeres ie. Kriegsmarine) armband (or: 'Dienstarmbinde') as was (IMO) intended for (graduated-) staff-members within one of the army-/naval officers' cadet-schools, in overall very nice condition This is a truly very attractive - and with certainty very rarely encountered! - WH (Heeres ie. Kriegsmarine) armband (or: 'Dienstarmbinde') as was (IMO) intended for (non-graduated?)-) staff-members within one of the army- (ie. naval-) officers' cadet-schools, in overall very nice (ie. minimally used- and/or worn-) condition. The neat armband - which measures 42 x 10 cms. in length - shows the typical, WH eagle-device as woven in black-coloured (!) linnen on a white-/ie. somewhat beige-coloured (and/or stained-) linnen-based background. The eagle - which is period attached to the armband by means of 'zig-zag'-stitching - is neatly executed in 'BeVo'-weave pattern and is only the second such rare example that I have ever encountered. The piece - which has clearly been used and worn and shows some obvious wear, age and/or staining - has furthermore the (typical-) light-blue coloured borders but is not also 'enclosed' within a frame of similar braid. (Note: I might therefore been intended for cadets ie. junior-officers who did not yet completed their training. Simply a very nice - and with certainty rarely seen! - Heeres- (ie. eventually Kriegsmarine-) related 'Armbinde' which is IMO priced according to its desirability and/or unmistaken rarity!
Attractive - and almost matching! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe) 'dual-piped'-, officers'-type shoulderboards, as was intended for usage by a: 'Leutnant der Reserve eines Flieger- o. Fallschirm-regiments' The pair is piped in the golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour and has a secondary, greyish-blue- (ie. 'grauer'-) coloured branchcolour attached: as such, the pair was intended for usage by a: 'Leutnant der Reserve eines Flieger- o. Fallschirm-regiments' (or: reserve lieutnant who served within a pilot- or paratroopers-regiment). The pair was presumably never used nor tunic-attached and comes in an overall very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued-), condition. The shoulderboards - which are constructed from the greyish-blue- (ie. 'grauer'-) coloured-, 'smooth-type' (ie. moleskin-like-) wool - are in an excellent condition overall and will be hard to be upgraded (the pair is truly almost matching and only differs from eachother in very minor detal as can be seen on the pictures. The fairly 'shiny' appearance of the 'upperdecks' is fully present and/or preserved (something that is to be expected with a Luftwaffe-related pair). The boards are just a tiny bit 'tarnished' by normal age and/or storage for decades (as can be seen on the pictures). The boards - which measure approximately 12 cms. in length each - never had any pips nor cyphers attached and never had any tongues attached: they were as stated above IMO intended to be used as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type and were simply never tunic-attached: they originate from a larger insignia- ie. shoulderboard-collection I recently acquired. It should be noted that these attractive, dual-piped officers'-type shoulderboards as intended for a: 'Offiziere der Reserve eines Flieger- o. Fallschirmregiments' can easily be graded: 'very scarce'!
Attractive - and desirable! - maker- (ie. 'L/58'-) marked-, miniature of an: 'Ehrenkreuz der Deutschen Mutter in Bronze' as was produced by the: 'Rudolf Souval'-company, that comes stored in its original (ie. 'LDO'-marked-) generic-styled 'LDO-etui' This is an attractive - and with certainty desirable! - neatly maker- (ie. 'L/58'-) marked example of a miniature: 'Ehrenkreuz der Deutschen Mutter in Bronze' (or bronze class mothers'-cross) as was produced by the: 'Rudolf Souval'-company and that comes stored in its original (ie. 'LDO'-marked-) and/or generic-styled- bordeaux-red-coloured 'LDO-etui', in overall nice (albeit IMO issued ie. minimally used- ie. worn-) condition. The small-sized medal has truly no enamel damage whatsoever and is in a very nice condition overall: it shows the to be expected motto on the back which reads: '16 December 1938 - Adolf Hitler' and also bears the makers'-designation: 'L/58' (signifying that it is a piece that was produced by the maker: 'Rudolf Souval' based in Vienna (Wien). The bronze finish is a tiny bit tarnished but the piece is IMO never cleaned nor polished. The small badge (only: 2 cms. high!) shows great, pronounced detail: just like its bigger 'regular'-sized versions. The miniature comes mounted on its original safety-pin attachment, fitted for easy attaching it to a dress (or even uniform). It came stored in its neat - and scarcely seen! - 6 x 6 cms.-sized etui (which is as stated a bordeaux-red-coloured and/or semi-leatherette, so-called generic-styled 'LDO-etui' that shows no symbol on its top). It shows a - fully preserved! - sprayed-, beige-yellow-coloured 'velvet-like' interior and shows the to be expected 'LDO'-signification in the top of its lid (see pictures). The set was recently found at a German flea-market and was never before in a collection. Simply a nice occasion to acquire neat: 'Ehrenkreuz der Deutschen Mutter in Bronze'-miniature that comes stored in its rarely seen generic-styled 'LDO-etui'!
Attractive - and desirable! - non-maker-marked-, 'Buntmetall'-based example of a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz I. Klasse mit Schwerter', that comes stored in its original (ie. 'LDO'-marked-) generic-styled 'LDO-etui' - overall nice (albeit used-) condition! This is an attractive - and with certainty desirable! - non-maker-marked- and/or 'Buntmetall'-based example of a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz I. Klasse mit Schwerter' (or war-merits cross first-class with swords) that comes stored in its original (ie. 'LDO'-marked-) and/or generic-styled 'LDO-etui', in overall nice (albeit clearly issued ie. used-) condition. The award is - as stated above - an neat - albeit non-maker-marked and/or: 'Bunt- metall' (ie. 'Tombak-') based specimen that was clearly issued and/or moderately worn: it comes on its (fully functional!) pin- ie. catch set-up. The medal has a somewhat dirty ie. darkened age-patina and retains only a tiny part of its shiny, polished-sides (ie. 'hochpolierte Kanten') - see pictures. Some regular age ie. staining is however visible and present, simply caused by decades of storage and/or fair wear. The piece has certainly never been cleaned nor polished and therefore are its details and/or finish still very nice and/or crisp. The etui is in an equally nice condition: it is as stated a black-coloured and/or semi-leatherette, so-called generic-styled 'LDO-etui' that shows no symbol on its top. It shows a - fully preserved! - sprayed-, beige-coloured 'velvet-like' interior and shows the to be expected 'LDO'-signification in the top of its lid (see pictures). The set was recently found at a German flea-market and was never before in a collection. Simply a nice occasion to acquire neat 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1.Klasse mit Schwerter'-set for a competitive price!

Attractive - and fairly large-sized! - example of a linnen-based WH 'Heeres' sport-shirt badge (ie. 'Brustadler für Sportanzug') as was executed in the neat 'BeVo-weave pattern I recently encountered a small stack comprising of 8 (fully indentical) examples of the attractive - and fairly large-sized and/or linnen-based-, so-called WH 'Heeres' sport-shirt badge (ie. 'Brustadler für Sportanzug') as executed in the neat 'BeVo-weave pattern, all eight pieces in overall very nice (ie. virtually mint- ie. unissued- and never shirt-attached-) condition. These decorative badges were worn on the specific army, linnen-based sport-shirts and/or related garments. The badges are of the larger-sized version (measuring: 27 x 14,5 cms. each) and are neatly executed in the so-called 'BeVo'-weave technique. The pieces - which show an interwoven, black-coloured national eagle-device on a beige-white-coloured- and/or linnen-based background - are just a tiny bit wrinkled and show some minor aging ie. staining caused by regular handling and/or storage for decades. They were simple never 'cut'-, trimmed- nor pre-folded and are as stated just a tiny bit stained caused by decades of storage only. The price is naturally intended for one single example. Simply a nice opportunity to acquire a neat army sportshirt breast-eagle for a competitive price!
Attractive - and fairly scarcely encountered! - 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'- ie. WWII-period pocket-watch ('Dienstuhr') of the make: 'Arsa', having a black-coloured dial-plate and/or engraved back-plate that reads: 'D 13277 H' This is a truly attractive - and/or fairly scarcely encountered! - example of a 'standard-pattern'-, 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'- ie. WWII-period pocket-watch ('Dienstuhr') of the make: 'Arsa', having a black-coloured dial-plate and/or engraved back-plate that reads: 'D 13277 H', in overall very nice and/or fully functional, condition. These pocket-watches - having a standard 15- or 17-jewel movement - were distributed at a very small scale to the various soldiers (ie. NCO and/or officers!) of the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' and were properly entered in both: 'Wehrpass' and/or 'Soldbuch'. They had to be engraved with a 'DH' numbering (which abbreviation stands for: 'Deutsches Heer'). As stated has the piece on offer here a fully undamaged black-coloured dial having a subsidiary 'seconds'-dial at the 6 o'clock position. The piece has a very attractive (and virtually undamaged) casing (which is executed in nickle-silver-based metal): the watch just shows some minimal wear and/or age. As stated above is the piece still fully functional and running. Simply a very nice and truly scarcely seen piece: I deem that I have priced this attractive equiment-piece accordingly!
Attractive - and fairly scarcely encountered! - 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'- ie. WWII-period pocket-watch ('Dienstuhr') of the make: 'Zenith', having a black-coloured dial-plate and/or engraved back-plate that reads: 'D 8405943 H' This is a truly very attractive - and/or fairly scarcely encountered! - example of a 'standard-pattern'-, 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'- ie.

Attractive - and fairly scarcely encountered! - HJ (ie. 'Hitlerjugend') honorary district-triangle (ie. 'Gebietsdreieck') entitled: 'Landjahr' that comes in an overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn- and/or clearly tunic-removed-), condition This is an attractive - and actually fairly scarcely encountered! - HJ (ie. 'Hitlerjugend') light-green coloured and/or linnen-based so-called: honorary district-triangle (ie. 'Gebietsdreieck') entitled: 'Landjahr' that comes in an overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn- and/or clearly tunic-removed-), condition. The triangle - which has IMO been moderately used - shows some normal age, wear and/or staining. It has lost its paper-based so-called: 'RzM'-etiket over the years. The purpose of this 'HJ-Landjahr'-movement, which was introduced in 1934, was to 'deepen the ties connecting the young people of urban areas with the land and peasentry'. Simply an attractive and scarcely encountered HJ-related 'Gebietsdreieck': hard to find a nicer example for a more interesting price!

'Hitlerjugend') light-green coloured and/or linnen-based so-called honorary district-triangle entitled: 'Landjahr', in overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn- and/or tunic-removed-) condition. The triangle - which has IMO only minimally been used shows some normal age, wear and/or staining. It has lost its paper-based so-called: 'RzM'-etiket over the years. The purpose of this 'HJ-Landjahr' movement, which was introduced in 1934, was to 'deepen the ties connecting the young people of urban areas with the land and peasentry'.

Attractive - and fairly scarcely encountered! - WWI-period-, silver-coloured breast- ie. honorary-badge also known as: 'Frontkämpferabzeichen des Weltkrieges 1914-1918 mit Schwertern', being an example that was (presumably) awarded in the early 30-ies This is an attractive - and fairly scarcely encountered! - WWI-period-, silver-coloured breast- ie. honorary-badge also known as: 'Frontkämpferabzeichen des Weltkrieges 1914-1918 mit Schwertern', being an example that was (presumably) awarded in the early 30-ies, that comes in an overall very nice (and IMO only moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. These attractive breast-badges recognised loyal front-duty in the Great War and were awarded by the veterans'-association: 'Verband der Frontkämpfer des Weltkriegs 1914-1918 e.V.' based in the town of Bremen. This - with certainty high-quality produced! - badge is IMO made out of silver-coloured- and/or zinc-based- metal (ie. 'Feinzink') and truly has an immaculate silvered surface: it is just a tiny bit stained ie. dirty but was never cleaned nor polished (as can be seen from the pictures). The badge on offer here is not marker-marked but does show a: 'D.R.G.M.' and/or: 'Ges.Gesch.'-patent-pending-marking on its back (as can be seen on the pictures). These attractive and fairly large-sized badges (measuring approximately 5,2 x 4,5 cms.) came with an official award-document (ie. 'Besitzzeugnis'). The piece was - as stated above - never been cleaned nor polished and comes of course mounted on its functional pin-/catch (-set-up). Simply a very attractive example that is hard to be upgraded and that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and fairly scarcely encountered! - zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based-version of an: 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or GAB), being a non-maker- marked example as produced by the: 'Steinhauer u. Lück'-company - overall nice condition! This is a very nice - and actually fairly scarcely encountered! - solid, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based-version of an: 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or GAB or general assault badge), being a non-maker- marked example having a desirable so-called: 'Juncker'-style set-up, as was produced by the: 'Steinhauer u. Lück'-company, in overall nice, albeit clearly used ie. worn, condition. This particular example - which is as stated a non-maker-marked example - was produced by the: 'Steinhauer u. Lück'-company based in Lüdenscheid (something that can easily be deducted by studying the typical 'Juncker'-style (hinge- and/or catch set-up as can be seen on the pictures). The badge - which has truly pronounced detaill - comes complete with its functional catch and/or hinge (-set-up) as to be expected and comes on its functional pin. The piece is executed from silverish-coloured zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal and has maintained a nice, albeit somewhat tarnished- (ie. typical zinc-like-) finish. The badge - which originates from a private household - shows some dust and/or dirt but was most certainly never cleaned nor polished. Still a very nice and actually quite desirable GAB which is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and fairly unusually encountered! - DRK (ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz'), so-called: 'molded'-styled-, alumnium-based belt-buckle, being a maker- (ie. 'OLC'-) marked example This is a truly very attractive - and in this condition actually fairly unusually encountered! - DRK (ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz'), so-called: 'molded'-styled-, aluminium-based belt-buckle, being a neatly maker- (ie. 'OLC'-) marked example, that comes in an overall very nice (IMO hardly used- nor worn-), condition. The buckle was IMO issued ie. worn but nevertheless still retains extraordinary detail as to be expected. The piece has a typical, greyish-coloured aluminium-like- appearance (ie. colour) and has never been cleaned nor polished (it has just acquired some blackened tarnish and/or normal age-patina over the years). The piece - which IMO is of an early-war production - is neatly maker- (ie. 'OLC'-) marked and also bears the: 'Ges.Gesch.'- patent-pending marking (as can be seen from the photos). Simply a very nice 'variant'-styled-, German Red Cross belt-buckle which is actually not that commonly encountered in this 'molded' version and/or hardly worn, condition. Simply a very nice and desirable belt-buckle that is IMO priced according to its great condition!
Attractive - and fairly unusually encountered! - Dutch volunteer-related breast- badge as was intended for members within the: 'Germanische Landdienst' being a detailed example that is IMO only moderately used This is an attractive - and fairly rarely- ie. with certainty unusually encountered! - Dutch volunteer-related breastbadge as was intended for usage by members who served within the: 'Germanische Landdienst', being a detailed example that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. only moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. These attractive breastbadges were worn by all European (incl. the Dutch-) volunteers that worked for a determined period within the so-called: 'Germanische Landdienst'. The badge on offer here - is executed in silverish-grey-coloured zinc- (ie.'Feinzink'-) based metal (as always) and comes in an overall nice- and/or totally uncleaned condition: it comes as recently found. The badge shows its period-attached pin-/catch set-up which is naturally still functional (see pictures). The badge has IMO clearly been worn and was never cleaned or polished: it retains an attractive, typical zinc-like age-patina. The piece came from a very old collection of Dutch volunteer items. A similar example of this rare badge is also figured in the 'Heering/Hüsken'-lapel-pin catalogue, wherein it has been given the unique reference-number: 'K8 05A' and given an estimated value of 500 Eu (!). Simply an attractive - and with certainty rarely encountered! - Germanic volunteer-related breast- badge that is IMO accordingly priced!

It is also figured in the 'Heering/Hüsken'-lapel-pin catalogue, wherein it has the unique number: 'K8 05A' and wherein it is given an estimated value of 500 Eu. Of course did I price it IMO accordingly due to its period-repaired condition. In any case still a nice - and truly rarely encountered! - Dutch volunteer-related breastbadge that IMO is accordingly priced!
Attractive - and fully matching and/or scarcely encountered! - pair of high-ranked officers'-type collar-patches, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - a: 'Wehrmachtsbeamte des höheren Dienstes' This is a truly attractive - and/or fully matching and truly scarcely encountered! - pair of high-ranked officers'-type collar-patches, as was intended for - and/or with certainty worn by - a: 'Wehrmachtsbeamte des höheren Dienstes' (= being an administrative-official having the highest rank-variant ie. belonging to the: 'höheren Dienstes'), in overall nice, albeit moderately worn ie. clearly tunic-removed-, condition. The tabs are beautifully executed in golden-toned (very detailed!) hand-embroidery on a dark-green-coloured- and/or woolen-based background and are neatly piped in the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) woolen-type piping as was prescribed per regulation. The rank could be compared with a general-officer and was held by various WH 'Beamte' ie. army-officials (such as for example: 'Oberintendanturrat', 'Landwirtschaftsrat u. 35 Jahre' etc.). The pieces are beautifully constructed (ie. hand-embroidered) using golden-toned braid: both tabs show superb detail and/or craftmanship but are somewhat tarnished over the years. The tabs are naturally 'backed' with the brownish-coloured 'buckram'-based cloth and still shows the signs of having once been once tunic-attached. Actually are all these higher-ranked 'Beamten'-insignia quite hard to encounter. Simply a very nice pair that is hard to be upgraded!
Attractive - and fully matching! - 4-pieced insignia-set comprising of a pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs as intended for an: 'Oberst der Artillerie-Truppen' - overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition This is a very attractive - and/or fully matching! - 4-pieced insignia-set ie. grouping, comprising of a pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs, all four pieces piped in the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter') coloured branchcolour, as intended for - and/or most certainly worn by! - an: 'Oberst der (Sturm-)Artillerie-Truppen' (or full colonel within the artillery-troops), all four pieces in an overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn- and/or most certainly tunic-removed-) condition. The insignia - which are as stated piped in the neat bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour, were as such intended for an: 'Oberst der (Sturm-)Artillerie-Truppen'. The shoulderboards have silver-greyish- (ie. somewhat sub-dued-) silver-coloured 'upperdecks' and show four, golden-coloured- and/or fully matching, pips attached. The boards - which are sized: 10,2 cms. in length - never had any tongues attached: they were clearly worn as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type (stitching-remains are still present). The pair never had any cyphers ie. numerals attached and is constructed from the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter') coloured (and/or smooth-type-) wool as to be expected. The collar-tab-set - which is also fully matching - is also executed in the smooth-type- and/or dark-green-coloured wool and shows the neat and detailed hand-embroidery as to be expected. The tabs are both noy 'backed' (something that is more often encountered). The set is still very detailed but shows minimal wear and/or age (it has clearly been once tunic-attached). The insignia-grouping was recently found at a private household and was never before in a collection: it belonged to the same 'Oberst der (Sturm-)Artillerie-Truppen', who most certainly wore and/or carefully removed them and stored them as such for decades. Simply an attractive and most certainly desirable, 'high-ranked' WH (Heeres) officers'-type insignia-grouping that belonged to an: 'Oberst der (Sturm-)Artillerie-Truppen'!

Attractive - and fully matching! - 4-pieced insignia-set comprising of a pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs as intended for an: 'Oberst im Generals-Stab' - overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition! This is a very attractive - and/or fully matching! - 4-pieced insignia-set ie. grouping, comprising of a pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs, all four pieces piped in the neat darker-pinkish-red- (ie. 'karmesinroter') branchcolour, as intended for - and/or most certainly worn by! - an: 'Oberst im Generals-Stab' (or full colonel and/or general-staff officer), all four pieces in an overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn- and/or most certainly tunic-removed-) condition. The insignia - which are as stated piped in the neat darker-pinkish-red- (ie. 'karmesinroter'-) coloured branchcolour, were as such intended for an: 'Oberst der Generals-Stab' (or colonel in the general staff). The shoulderboards have silver-greyish- (ie. somewhat sub-dued-) silver-coloured 'upperdecks' and show four, golden-coloured- and/or almost matching, pips attached. The boards - which are sized: 11 cms. in length - never had any tongues attached: they were clearly worn as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type (stitching-remains are still present). The pair never had any cyphers ie. numerals attached and is constructed from the darker-pinkish-red- (and/or smooth-type-) wool as to be expected. The set shows some minimal (moth-) damage on the backs (nothing shocking though). The collar-tab-set - which is also fully matching - is also executed in the smooth-type- and/or dark-green-coloured wool and shows the neat and detailed hand-embroidery as to be expected. The tabs are both 'backed' with yellowish-brown-coloured 'buckram'-like material as is more often encountered. The set is still very detailed but shows minimal wear and/or age (it has clearly been once tunic-attached). The insignia-grouping was recently found at a private household and was never before in a collection: it belonged to the same 'Oberst im Generals-Stab', who most certainly wore and/or carefully removed them and stored them as such for decades. Simply an attractive and desirable, 'high-ranked' WH (Heeres) officers'-type insignia-grouping that is executed in one of the more scarcely encountered branchcolours of the: 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'!
Attractive - and fully matching! - 4-pieced insignia-set comprising of a pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs as intended for an: 'Oberst im Generals-Stab' - overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition!

The insignia - which are as stated piped in the neat darker-pinkish-red- (ie. 'karmesinroter'-) coloured branchcolour, were as such intended for an: 'Oberst der Generals-Stab' (or colonel in the general staff). The shoulderboards have silver-greyish- (ie. somewhat sub-dued-) silver-coloured 'upperdecks' and show four, golden-coloured- albeit slightly mis-matched, pips attached. The boards - which are sized: 11 cms. in length - never had any tongues attached: they were clearly worn as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type. The pair never had any cyphers ie. numerals attached and is constructed from the darker-pinkish-red- (and/or smooth-type-) wool as to be expected.

Simply an attractive and desirable, 'high-ranked' WH (Heeres) officers'-type insignia-grouping that is executed in one of the more scarcely encountered branchcolours of the: 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of bright-pink-piped so-called: 'Motor HJ' (ie.'Hitlerjugend') shoulderstraps, as were intended for a: 'Hitlerjunge' who served within: 'Bann 841' (841 = 'Bann Gross Gerau') This is an attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) piped, so-called: 'Motor HJ' (ie.'Hitlerjugend') shoulderstraps, as were intended for a: 'Hitlerjunge' who served within: 'Bann 841' (841 = 'Bann Gross Gerau'), both pieces in overall nice albeit clearly used ie. worn- and/or carefully shirt-removed-, condition. The straps - which are executed in black-coloured linnen, having the bright-pink embroidered '841'-numerals and/or bright-pink (rayon-based) piping attached - were most certainly worn on a shirt or/tunic and come without tongues as found and issued: the boards measure 11 cms. in length as usually encountered. Both boards show some minimal age ie. staining (and have lost their RzM-etikets over the years), simply caused by decades of storage and/or moderate wear. Both have no braid nor pips attached, denoting the lowest HJ-rank of: 'Hitlerjunge'. In any case a very nice - and actually rarely encountered - pair of 'Motor HJ' shoulderstraps that belonged to a unusually encountered 'HJ-Bann' based in the province (ie. 'Gebiet 13') 'West Hessen-Nassau'!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of early- (ie. pre-war-) period-, WH (Heeres), 'M36'-pattern (pointed-style-) 'cyphered', NCO-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel u. Mitglied des Eisenbahn-Pioniere Abteilungs 3' This is a very attractive - fully matching and as such actually scarcely encountered - pair of early- (ie. pre-war-) period, WH (Heeres), 'M36'-type (pointed-style-) 'cyphered' (and as per regulation, non-piped-) NCO-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - a: 'Feldwebel u. Mitglied des Eisenbahn-Pioniere Abteilungs 3' (or: sergeant who served within an armoured-trains-related-, engineers unit ie. regiment, numbered: '3'), that comes in an overall very nice (albeit moderately used- and/or worn-), condition. The neat boards - which are of the pre- ie. early-war-type - have the darker-green-coloured-, woolen-based 'upperdecks' as to be expected and have of course no piping (they are boards of the 'generic pattern' as to be expected and/or mentioned above). The tongue is naturally also present and/or functional. The boards - which measure approximately 11,2 cms. in length each - show the early-pattern-, silverish-coloured and/or: 'standard-pattern'-, 'Heeres'-type NCO-braid attached. The straps show a neat (regular-sized-, Gothic-styled- and/or: 'Buntmetall'-based-) pair of 'E'-cyphers and equally styled '3'-numerals and/or two single pips attached denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Feldwebel'. All six devices (as well as the straps) show some moderate age- ie. fair tarnish and/or wear (some minor staining and/or dust is visible-/present). The pair came with a set of pebbled-style tunic-buttons attached (which are held in place with their typical rings - as can be seen on the pictures). It should be noted that all 'cyphered'-type shoulderstraps can be easily regarded 'fairly scarce'. This particular pair originated from a larger cloth- ie. shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. In any case an attractive and/or early-war period-, 'cyphered Heeres'-related shoulderstrap-pair that was intended for - and used by! - a: 'Feldwebel u. Mitglied des Eisenbahn-Pioniere Abteilungs 3'!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of IMO early-war-period WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type (ie. great-coat type!) shoulderboards, as intended for a: 'Soldat der Kavallerie-Truppen' - overall very nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-), condition! This is a truly attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of IMO early-war-period (ie. 'M36'-type ie. 'rounded'-style-), WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type (IMO great-coat type!) shoulderboards, piped in the desirable golden-yellow- (ie. 'Goldgelber'-) coloured branchcolour, as intended for - and worn by! - a: 'Soldat der Kavallerie-Truppen' (or simply cavalry soldier), in overall very nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-), condition. The - IMO most certainly early-war period type- shoulderboards (which are fairly long-sized and measure each approximately 12,8 cms. in length and are as such almost certainly intended for usage on the greatcoat or: 'Mantel') - show the neat golden-yellow (ie. 'Goldgelber'-) coloured and/or woolen type piping. They have the dark-green coloured 'upperdecks' and come of course mounted on their functional tongues as issued and/worn. It should be noted that these 'simple' 'Kavallerie'-shoulderboards having the darker-green-coloured, woolen 'upperdecks' and/or golden-yellow coloured piping are not that easy to encounter and are quite sought-after. The set was IMO only moderately used: some minimal age, wear and/or slight usage-marks are present and/or visible. The neat pair could of course excellently be used to complete any early-war 'Heeres'-greatcoat (or tunic) or would be a great addition to any shoulderboard-collection. I deem that this neat and scarcely encountered pair is accordingly priced!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of IMO mid-war-period-, so-called: 'M43'-pattern-, WH (Heeres) EM-type shoulderstraps that comes with its attached 'Übershube'-pair, as was intended for a: 'Soldat des Landesschützen-Batallions 642' The attractive - and/or fully 'text-book'- and/or fully matching enlisted-mens'-type-, shoulderstrap-pair is piped in the desirable white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour and measures approximately 11,7 cms. in length. The straps have the desirable white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured- and/or: woolen-type piping attached (as is more often encountered with these mid-war-period shoulderstrap-pairs) and were intended for usage by a simple soldier who served within the infantry-related: 'Landesschützen-Batallions', numbered: '642' (something that can naturally easily be deducted from the attached 'Übershube'-pair). The shoulderstraps - which originate from a larger cloth- ie. shoulderstrap-collection I recenly acquired - are 'text-book' examples having the field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based- and course-like- 'upperdecks': they are IMO moderately used ie. worn and do show some minimal wear, age and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The straps come naturally mounted on their functional tongues and came with a (matching) pair of (field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based-) so-called: slip-ons (ie. 'Übershuben') attached bearing both the signification: 'L642' (as executed in equally white-coloured so-called: 'Machinenstickerei' done in linnen as can be seen on the pictures). Both the shoulderstraps and/or: 'Übershuben' are in a wonderful- and/or totally undamaged condition and will be hard to be upgraded - see pictures. These desirable 'M43'-pattern-, army-infantry-related-, enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps as piped in the 'weisser'-coloured branchcolour can easily be graded 'fairly scarce'. Simply a very attractive pair that belonged to a: 'Soldat des Landesschützen-Batallions 642'!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type collar-tabs, as was intended for a medium-ranked-, administrative-official having the rank of: 'Leutnant' (ie.: 'Beambter a.K. des mittlerer Dienstes') The attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - collar-pair - which was intended for usage by a lower- (ie. medium-) ranked officer having the comparable rank of: 'Leutnant' or: 'Oberleutnant' (ie.: 'Beambter a.K. des mittlerer Dienstes') is constructed from the specific, greyish-coloured- and/or: smooth-like- (ie. moleskin-type-) wool having a darker-green- (and rayon-type-) piping attached. The tabs have, moreover, the (typical-) greyish-silver-coloured- (and hand-embroidered!) 'upperdecks' showing as per regulation darker-green-coloured 'centre-stripes'. The collar-tabs were never used nor tunic-attached: they still show a period inventory-etiket attached - see pictures. The collar-tab-pair - which shows the beige-coloured buckram 'backings' as to be expected - was never before in a collection and does show some minimal age and/or staining simply caused by decades of storage only (as can be seen on the pictures). It should be noted that these Heeres-related-, officers'-type collar-tabs as were intended for: 'Beambter a.K. des mittlerer Dienstes' can easily be graded: 'fairly scarce'.
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboards, as intended for a: 'Hauptmann eines Kavallerie-Regiments' - nice (ie. moderately used- ie. tunic-removed-) condition! This is a truly attractive - and fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboards, piped in the desirable golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelber'-) branchcolour, as intended for - and most certainly worn by! - a: 'Hauptmann eines Kavallerie-Regiments' (or captain within a cavalry regiment), in overall nice (ie. moderately used- ie. tunic-removed-) condition. The shoulderboards - which are actually not that easily encountered and can IMO easily be graded 'fairly scarce' - are constructed in the golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelber'-) coloured, smooth-type (ie. 'moleskin'-like-) wool and have a length of approximately 11 cms. each. The set comes without tongues as found and a pair that was used as a sew-in-type pair: the boards were clearly once mounted on a tunic and were carefully tunic-removed. The boards - which show four (identical- and/or neatly golden-toned!) pips attached denoting the officers'-rank of: 'Hauptmann' - have truly 'greyish'-/ie. 'sub-dued' 'upperdecks’ (something that IMO clearly identifies them as WH Heeres-type boards). As most certainly known were these type of shoulderboards also worn on the black-woolen, 'Panzer'-type 'wrap-around' tunics. The set shows some truly minimal age ie. staining caused by years of storage and/or moderate wear. Simply a very nice and desirable shoulderboard-pair that was intended for usage by a: 'Hauptmann eines Kavallerie-Regiments'!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), 'M36'-pattern-, NCO-type shoulderstraps having a pair of regimental-slip-ons (ie. 'Übershube') period-attached, as was intended for an: 'Unteroffizier des Infanterie-Regiments 133' This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered and/or fully matching! - pair of (Heeres), IMO early-war- (ie. pre-war-period ie. 'M36'-pattern- and/or rounded-style-) NCO-type shoulderstraps as was piped in the neat white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour and having a pair of regimental-slip-ons (ie. 'Übershube') period-attached, as was intended for usage by an: 'Unteroffizer des Infanterie-Regiments 133' (or junior-sergeant who served within the infantry regiment, numbered '133') and that comes in an overall nice (albeit issued- and moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. The neat schoulderstraps - which have the 'standard'-pattern-, darker-green-coloured- and/or smooth-woolen-based 'upperdecks' - have the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured- and/or woolen-type piping attached (see pictures). The straps measure approximately 11,2 cms. in length each. The straps - which are of the regular-issued - (ie. non-private-production-) type - come mounted on their functional tongues and come of course in a nice, ie. fully 'text-book' condition, overall. The straps show - as stated above - a pair of regimental-slip-ons (ie. 'Übershube') period-attached (which slip-ons show the machine-embroidered '133'-numerals (which are executed in the white- ie. 'weisser'-coloured wool and which are done by means of so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei' as to be expected). The set shows - as stated above - minimal wear ie. age: they were IMO clearly used and do shows some wear, staining and/or age (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a great occasion to acquire an attractive and with certainty desirable 'Infanterie'-related NCO-type-, shoulderstrap-pair that was recently found at a private household and that was never before part of a collection!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), IMO early-war period (ie. 'M36'-model- ie. rounded-style-) NCO-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for an: 'Unteroffizier der Heeres Nachrichten-Truppen' This is a truly attractive - and fully matching! – pair of WH (Heeres), IMO early-war period (ie. 'M36'-model and/or rounded-style-) NCO-type shoulderstraps, as was piped in the neat bright-yellow- (ie. 'zitronengelber'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and most certainly worn by! - an: 'Unteroffizier der Heeres Nachrichten-Truppen' (or junior-sergeant who served within an army signals unit ie. regiment), in overall very nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition. The neat straps - which have the 'standard'-pattern, darker-green-coloured- and/or 'smooth-woolen'-based 'upperdecks' and which are of the 'regular-issued'-type - show the neat bright-yellow- (ie. 'zitronengelber'-) coloured- (and/or: woolen-type-) piping attached. The straps which measure approximately 11,2 cms. in length each, come mounted on their functional tongues and are of course in a nice, ie. fully 'text-book' condition, overall. The shoulderstraps show the 'standard'-type-, silver-greyish-coloured NCO-braid attached denoting the NCOs-rank of: 'Unteroffizier'. The straps show - as stated above - only moderate usage ie. wear (some regular age, dust and/or staining is clearly visible and/or present). The pair originates from a private household in Germany and was carefully stored and kept as such for decades: the pair was never before in a collection. (Note: This pair was as stated above never before in collectors'-hands and was found together with the collar-tab-pair I offer under number #39505). In any case is this a superb occasion to acquire a nice and most certainly desirable NCO-type, 'Heeres Nachrichten'-shoulderstrap-pair that was worn by an: 'Unteroffizier der Heeres Nachrichten-Truppen'!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), IMO mid-war period (ie. 'M43'-type-) EM-type shoulderstraps that comes with its attached 'Übershube'-pair, as was intended for a: 'Soldat der Nachrichten-Aufklärungs-Truppen' This is a truly attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), IMO mid-war period (ie. 'M43'-type-) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps as piped in the neat bright-yellow- (ie. 'zitronengelber'-) coloured branchcolour that comes with its attached 'Übershube'-pair, as was intended for - and worn by! - a: 'Soldat der Nachrichten-Aufklärungs-Truppen' (or simple soldier who served within an army, reconnaisance signals-unit), in overall very nice (and IMO only minimally used ie. worn-) condition. The straps - which have the field-grey coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks' - have the bright-yellow- (ie. 'zitronengelber'-) and/or 'silk-like'-type piping attached and measure approximately 12 cms. in length each. They come mounted on their original tongues and are in a very nice, ie. fully 'text-book' condition overall. The straps came with a (matching) pair of (field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based-) so-called: slip-ons (ie. 'Übershuben') attached, bearing both the Latin-styled signification: 'A' (as executed in equally bright-yellow- (ie. 'zitronengelber'-) coloured so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei' done in wool as can be seen on the pictures). Both 'Übershuben' are in a great albeit equally used- and/or worn condition - see pictures. Simply a very attractive pair of minimally used 'Soldat der Nachrichten-Aufklärungs-Truppen' that can easily serve to complete any mid-war 'Heeres'-type tunic or that can be stored in a shoulder-strap-collection: with certainty one of the most attractive signals-pairs I had on offer for a long time!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), IMO mid-war period (ie. 'M43'-type-) EM-type shoulderstraps that comes with its attached 'Übershube'-pair, as was intended for a: 'Soldat des Pioniere-Abteilungs 246' This is a truly attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), IMO mid-war period (ie. 'M43'-type-) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps as was piped in the neat black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured branchcolour that comes with its attached 'Übershube'-pair, as was intended for - and worn by! - a: 'Soldat des Pioniere-Abteilungs 246' (or simple soldier who served within an army, engineers-unit, numbered: '246'), that comes in an overall very nice (and IMO only minimally used ie. worn-) condition. The straps - which have the field-grey coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks' - have the black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured and/or: 'silk-like'-type piping attached and measure approximately 13 cms. in length each. They come mounted on their original tongues and are in a very nice, ie. fully 'text-book' condition overall. The straps came with a (matching) pair of (field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based-) so-called: slip-ons (ie. 'Übershuben') attached, bearing both the signification: '246' (as executed in equally black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei' done in wool as can be seen on the pictures). Both 'Übershuben' are in a great albeit equally minimally used- and/or worn condition - see pictures. Simply a very attractive pair of minimally used 'Soldat des Pioniere-Abteilungs 246' that can easily serve to complete any mid-war 'Heeres'-type tunic (or great-coat) or that can be stored in any shoulder-strap-collection: with certainty one of the most attractive engineer-pairs I had on offer for a long time
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of white-piped, 'Reiter'- (ie. 'Streifendienst'-) HJ (ie. 'Hitlerjugend') shoulderstraps, as intended for a: 'Hitlerjunge' within: 'Bann 260' (260 = 'Bann Beckum-Niedenbrück') - overall nice condition! This is a truly attractive - and actually rarely encountered and fully matching! - pair of white-piped, 'Reiter'- (ie. 'Streifendienst'-) HJ (ie. 'Hitlerjugend') shoulderstraps, as intended for -and/or worn by! - a: 'Hitlerjunge' within: 'Bann 260' (260 = 'Bann Beckum-Niedenbrück'), in overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition. The 'text-book' pair - executed in black linnen, having white-coloured, machine-embroidered '260' numerals and white coloured 'rayon-like' piping - comes mounted on its functional tongues as found, issued and/or worn: the boards measure 11 cms. in length (as is common for HJ-type shoulderboards). The straps are clearly used ie. issued and do show some regular wear, age and/or staining: both boards still shows the remains of their period-attached 'RzM'-etikets (see pictures). One of the button-holes on the tongues has been torn (although nothing that shocking). Simply a very attractive (and most certainly rarely encountered!) 'Reiter'- (ie. 'Streifendienst'-) HJ shoulderboard-pair that belonged to a: 'Hitlerjunge' that served within the unusually encountered: 'Bann 260'!
Attractive - and fully matching! - WH (Heeres), officers'-type insignia-set comprising of a pair of shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs, as intended for a: 'Hauptmann eines (Sturm-)Artillerie-Regiments' - overall nice condition! This is an attractive - and fully matching! - WH (Heeres), officers'-type insignia-set (ie. 4-pieced grouping) comprising of a pair of shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs, as piped in the neat bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as intended for - and most certainly worn by! - a: 'Hauptmann eines (Sturm-)Artillerie-Regiments' (or captain who served within an artillery regiment ie. unit), in overall very nice, albeit moderately used ie. worn- and/or clearly tunic-removed-, condition. The shoulderboards come mounted on their seldomly seen 'Auf der Steg'-set-up ie. mounting and where most likely used on a white-coloured- (or summer-type-) tunic. They are truly 'text-book'-examples of the 'Heeres'-type 'Artillerie'-shoulderboards and have the greyish-silver- (ie. somewhat shiny-) 'upperdecks'. The boards show the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour (and are constructed from the smooth- ie. 'moleskin'-type wool). The boards never had any numerals nor 'cyphers' attached but do show four golden-toned pips attached denoting the officers'-rank of: 'Hauptmann'. The boards measure approximately 11,2 cms. in length each. The pair was most certainly used and/or worn and such and shows moderate age, wear and/or staining. The boards came with an equally nice pair of hand-embroidered-, officers'-type collar-patches (which are naturally also piped in the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour). The silver-embroidery - which is executed on a dark-green coloured and/or smooth woolen-based background as to be expected - shows some truly minimal staining ie. minimal corrosion (see pictures). The set is not 'backed' is more often encountered and was with certainty also once tunic-attached. Simply an attractive - and comparatively scarcely encountered! - officers'-type, '(Sturm-)Artillerie'-insignia-grouping that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and IMO early- ie. mid-war-period example of a: 'SA-Sportabzeichen in Bronze', being a nicely maker- (ie. 'W. Redo'-) marked example The truly attractive - and IMO early- ie. mid-war-period - badge is as stated nicely maker-marked on the back with the makers'-signification: 'W. Redo' as based in the town of Saarlautern and also bears the usually encountered inscription: 'Eigentum d. Obersten SA-Führung' (on the back of the sword as more often). The badge - which comes naturally mounted on its functional pin- (ie. catch-) set-up - only shows some minor wear but was IMO never cleaned nor polished: the original- and/or golden-bronze-toned-finish is fully present and/or neatly preserved (see pictures). The badge is just a tiny bit stained ie. dirty caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage. Simply an attractive and or IMO early- ie. mid-war-period example that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and IMO early-period - 'SA Sportabzeichen in Bronze', being a nicely maker- (ie. 'E. Schneider'-) marked example that bears a unique, engraved- (ie. stamped-) bearers-number that reads: '648151' on its back The attractive - and IMO fairly early-period - badge is as stated nicely maker-marked on the back with the makers'-signification: 'E. Schneider' as based in the town of Lüdenscheid (and also bears the usually encountered inscription: 'Eigentum d. SA-Sportabzeichen Hauptstelle' which is to be found on the back of the sword as is more often seen). The badge - which comes naturally mounted on its functional (albeit minimally bent-) pin- (ie. catch-) set-up - only shows some minor wear but was IMO never cleaned nor polished: the original- and somewhat darkened - bronze-toned-finish is mostly present and/or neatly fully preserved (see pictures). The badge is just a tiny bit stained ie. dirty caused by moderate wear and/or storage for decades. Simply an attractive, fairly early-period- and/or: neatly 'serial-numbered' example that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and IMO minimally used- ie. worn - example of a cloth version of a WH (Luftwaffe) 'Deutsches Kreuz im Gold' (or DKiG ie. German Cross in gold) This is a truly attractive - and IMO minimally used ie. worn - example of a cloth version of a WH (Luftwaffe) 'Deutsches Kreuz im Gold' (or DKiG ie. German Cross in gold), that comes in an overall very nice, condition. The piece - which is neatly hand-embroidered in various types of bullion-based braid - has a bluish-grey-coloured and/or: typical smooth-woolen-based 'backing', signifying that it was a piece that was awarded to a Luftwaffe member ie. soldier (ie. officer). The piece shows some truly minimal age ie. wear: some of the stitching-remains (ie. holes-) are visible and present (see pictures). The cross shows a bright golden-toned- (ie. metal-based-) wreath as to be expected. The piece - which is void of an inked makers’-mark as is more often encountered - is neatly 'backed' with a piece of thin-shaped and/or black-coloured 'backing-paper' as is more often seen. Simply a very nice example of this high-class award - only second in grade to a Knights Cross or 'Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes'! - that IMO is accordingly priced. Simply an attractive example that clearly shows character and only regular wear: hard to upgrade this example!
Attractive - and IMO moderately used! - 'Panzerkampfabzeichen in Bronze' (or bronze panzer assault badge or PAB), being a neat zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) version as procuced by the: 'Steinhauer u. Lück' (ie. 'S.& L.') company This is a very nice - and IMO only moderately used and/or minimally stained - so-called: 'Panzerkampfabzeichen in Bronze' (or bronze panzer assault badge or PAB), being a neat non maker-marked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) version that was procuced by the: 'Steinhauer u. Lück' (ie. 'S.& L.') company, in overall very nice and IMO only moderately used ie. worn, condition. The badge on offer here concerns an (IMO mid-war-period-) zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based specimen that retains a fair bit of its bronze-coloured finish: the piece has a somewhat 'matted' appearance, showing superb detail and/or finish as to be expected. The badge has IMO never been cleaned nor polished (and is still also a tiny bit dirty ie. stained- ie. tarnished as mentioned above). As stated is the piece a non maker-marked example that shows the various characteristics - such as for example the typically-shaped pin-set-up and/or modelled catch - as only seen on PABs as produced by the: 'Steinhauer u. Lück' (ie. 'S.& L.') company based in the town of Lüdenscheid: it deals with a so-called: 'solid zinc, heavy weight piece having the so called "classic Juncker" reverse hardware' (as is uniquely numbered with the reference-number: '1.4.4.' according to the excellent reference-work entitled: 'The Panzer-Assault badge of WWII' by my Belgian friend Philippe de Bock). The neat piece - which is very pronounced and has truly great pronounced 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 flea-market and was never before in a collection. It was simply never cleaned nor polished. Simply a nice and honest bronze-class PAB by the 'Steinhauer u. Lück'-company in an attractive and only minimally used and/or worn condition!
Attractive - and IMO only minimally used! - 'hollow'-version of a: 'Panzerkampf- abzeichen in Bronze' (or bronze panzer assault badge or PAB), being a neat 'white-metal'-based version as procuced by the: 'Steinhauer u. Lück' (ie. 'S.& L.') company This is a very attractive - and IMO only minimally used - 'hollow'-version of a so-called: 'Panzerkampfabzeichen in Bronze' (or bronze panzer assault badge or PAB), being a neat non maker-marked and/or 'white-metal'-based version that was procuced by the: 'Steinhauer u. Lück' (ie. 'S.& L.') company, in overall very nice and IMO only minimally used ie. worn, condition. The badge on offer here concerns an (IMO later-war-period-) hollow-zinc- ie. 'white-metal'-based specimen that retains a fair bit of its bronze-coloured finish: the piece has a somewhat 'matted' appearance, showing superb detail and/or finish as to be expected. The badge has IMO never been cleaned nor polished (and is still also a tiny bit dirty ie. stained- ie. tarnished as mentioned above). As stated is the piece a non maker-marked example that shows the various characteristics - such as for example the typically-shaped pin-set-up and/or modelled catch - as only seen on PABs as produced by the: 'Steinhauer u. Lück' (ie. 'S.& L.') company based in the town of Lüdenscheid: it deals with a so-called: 'white metal hollow-back verison' (as is uniquely numbered with the reference-number: '1.4.2.' according to the excellent reference-work entitled: 'The Panzer-Assault badge of WWII' by my Belgian friend Philippe de Bock). The neat piece - which is very pronounced and has truly great pronounced 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 flea-market and was never before in a collection. It was simply never cleaned nor polished. Simply a nice and honest bronze-class PAB by the 'Steinhauer u. Lück'-company in an attractive and only minimally used and/or worn condition!
Attractive - and IMO only minimally used! - example of a (non-maker-marked-) and/or black-coloured-, 'generic' etui as was intended for an Iron Cross 1st class (or: 'Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse') This is a truly attractive example of an honest - and IMO only minimally used! - example of a (non-maker-marked-) and/or black-coloured-, 'generic'-styled etui as was intended for storage of an Iron Cross 1st class (or: 'Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse'), and that comes in an overall very nice (ie. once issued and only minimally used-), condition. The black-coloured- and/or simulated leather-based etui comes in an overall very nice condition and only shows minimal wear: the black-coloured (and artifical)-velvet-based inner-mounting just shows some minor staining and/or wear and shows a clear imprint of the cross it once held (something that is also visible in the white-coloured upper-section - as can be seen on the pictures). The etui shows a fully undamaged, silver- (ie. black-coloured) IC-symbol on its top (see pictures). The piece on offer came with a loosely fitted inner-section (this can be easily repaired if deemed needed). It should be noted that these IC-etuis are very collectable and are - without cross - not that easily found. Simply a very nice and desirable IC1st class etui that was recently found as such at a private house-hold and that was never before in a collection: it just needs an equally nicely preserved 'Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse' to complete!

Attractive - and IMO virtually mint- ie. unissued- example of a HJ ('Hitlerjugend') so-called: 'Motor-HJ Prüfungsabzeichen' (or: motor proficiency badge), being an example of the silver-class This is an attractive (and IMO virtually mint- ie. unissued-) example of a so-called: HJ ('Hitlerjugend') 'Motor-HJ Prüfungsabzeichen' (or: motor proficiency badge), being an example of the silver-class, that comes in an overall very nice (ie. virtually mint- ie. unissued-), condition. The neat smaller-sized badge (having a approximate diameter of 3,2 cms.) which is sometimes referred to as: 'Ausbildungsabzeichen' (or: trainings-badge) has lost its paper 'RzM'-etiket over the years (remains are still visible) and just shows some minor staining caused by years of storage ie. moderate wear. The patch is 'backed' with brownish-tan-coloured linnen as is more often the case (see pictures). This is the so-called second- (ie. silver) class, as executed in greyish-silver-coloured linnen on a pink-coloured- and woolen-based background. Simply an attractive and actually not that often encountered youth-related badge!
Attractive - and matching! - pair of 'M36'-styled (ie. rounded-pattern) WH (Heeres), 'cyphered'-, NCO-type-, shoulderstraps as was intended for - and worn by! - a: 'Feldwebel u. Mitglied einer Gebirgsjäger-Schule' The neat shoulderstraps - which are moderately used ie. clearly worn - measure approximately 10,7 cms. in length each and both have the darker-green-coloured and/or 'smooth'-woolen-based-, 'upperdecks': they show the darker-green- (ie. 'grüner')- coloured and/or woolen-type piping ie. branchcolour, attached. The pair comes mounted on its functional tongues and was IMO moderately used and/or worn (as can be seen on the pictures). The pair has the 'standard'-pattern- and/or (bright-) silver-coloured NCO-braid attached and shows an identical pair of Gothic-styled- (and regular-sized-, silver-coloured- and/or aluminium-based-) 'S'-cyphers and dito pips attached denoting the NCOs'-rank ie. function of: 'Feldwebel u. Mitglied einer Gebirgsjäger-Schule'. All four devices are minimally stained- ie. tarnished, simply caused by wear and/or decades of storage. The pair - which is as stated matching and that was always together and/or worn as such - is just a tiny bit dirty ie. stained and shows evidence of having been used and/or worn. The pair - which is with certainty a 'standard-issued'- (and NOT a tailor-made-) pair - is simply hard to be upgraded. This pair originated from a larger cloth- ie. insignia-collection I recently acquired. It should be noted that all enlisted-mens' (and/or NCO-type) 'Gebirgsjäger'-related shoulderstraps can easily be graded 'very scarce'. Only the first such pair with this particular rank I ever had on offer!
Attractive - and matching! - set comprising of a WH (KM) 'Blockadebrecher-Kriegsabzeichen' being a maker- (ie. 'Schwerin'-) marked example that comes together with its accompanying 'Halbminiatur', both pieces as executed in multi-coloured 'Feinzink' The - truly quality-produced albeit IMO later-war-period produced - award-set holds both the regular- and/or half-sized version of the: 'Blockadebrecher-Kriegsabzeichen' (or blocade-runner war-badge). Both pieces are IMO only minimally worn and were always kept as a set (they originated from a German household where they were recently found together: they were never part of any collection). Both attractive 'Kriegsmarine'-related awards retain great pronounced detail and retain most of their 'off-factory' bluish-coloured finish and details as executed in silver-finish (see pictures): the set has IMO never been cleaned nor polished (but was, nevertheless, IMO worn). The regular-sized badge (which is of the typical zinc-based-, 'flat-back'-pattern-) shows a clearly present makers'-marking (that reads: 'Fec. Otto Placzek Berlin - Ausf. Schwerin - Berlin') whereas the neat and/or: 26 mm.-sized: 'Halbminiatur' is void of any makers'-signification (as is more often the case). The regular-sized award comes naturally mounted on its (fully functional) pin- and/or pin-catch set-up whereas the miniature is mounted on its full-sized pin as to be expected. It should be noted that these (matching!) quality-produced- and/or: 'Feinzink'-based 'Blockadebrecher-Kriegsabzeichen'-sets can easily be graded 'scarce' and are not that often offered for sale: I deem that I have priced this great set accordingly!
Attractive - and most certainly not that often encountered! - smaller-sized-, period-, 'NS-Reichskriegerbund'-related publication entitled: 'Der NS-Reichskriegerbund - Was er ist und was er will' This is a neat - and most certainly not that often encountered! - smaller-sized-, period-, 'NS-Reichskriegerbund'-related publication entitled: 'Der NS-Reichskriegerbund - Was er ist und was er will', in overall very nice (ie. fully complete-) condition. The small-sized- (and/or 'soft-covered'-) booklet (which is only sized: 13,5 x 9 cms.) contains 25 pages with detailed, topic-related information and is furthermore nicely illustrated by means of detailed drawings and/or illustrations (see pictures). The booklet was surely issued but IMO never really used: it shows some minimal aging and/or staining caused by having been just stored as such for decades. Simply a very atttractive - and most certainly not that often encountered! - 'NS-Reichskriegerbund'-related publication that provides a clear insight into this lesser-known TR-organisation (giving for example background-information on lesser known uniforms and insignia!): only the first such neat little item I ever had on offer!
Attractive - and most certainly unusually encountered! - commemorative WH (Luftwaffe)-related item: an 'Errinnerungsmappe des Luftgau VII - Weinachten 1941', holding 12 nicely executed, art-reproductions - overall nice (and/or complete-) condition! This is an attractive - and most certainly unusually encountered! - commemorative WH (Luftwaffe)-related item, being a so-called: 'Errinnerungsmappe des Luftgau VII - Weinachten 1941', holding 12 nicely executed, art-reproductions ie. paintings, in overal nice (and/or fully complete-) condition. This neat item was issued to commorate the Christmas-celebrations of 1941 (ie. 'Kriegsweihnachten 1941') within the various troops as belonging to the: 'Luftgau VII'. The 12 reproductions come stored in their period, greyish-coloured and/or carton-based folder (which measures: 30 x 22 cms. and that shows its contents on the back: the 12 reproductions are fully described and their respective artists are mentioned - see pictures). The piece shows some regular age ie. wear but all 12 reproductions are in an immaculate and/or undamaged condition (some minimal staining and/or age is however noticable). The various - partly colourfull! - reproductions are naturally ideal to be framed. Simply a nice and unusually encountered 'Luftwaffe'-related item!
Attractive - and never before seen! - metal-based, WH (Heeres) 'souvenir' match-box holder, depicting a steel-helmet with below the impressed text: 'Truppenübnungsplatz Münsingen' - overall nice (albeit minimal used-) condition! This is an attractive - and actually never before seen! - metal- (ie. chromed-steel-) based, WH (Heeres) 'souvenir' match-box holder, depicting a German steel-helmet (with eagle-device and swastika!) with below the impressed text: 'Truppenübnungsplatz Münsingen', in overall nice (albeit minimal used-) condition. The piece is fairly small-sized and measures 5,5 x 4 cms.: it is ideally fitted to carry a box of matches. It came with a (non-period- ie. post-war-) box of matches. I am convinced that this is a scarcely encountered soldiers'-'souvenir-item' that was acquired by a soldier during his education at this army trainings-facillity based in the German town of Münsingen. I know that these items are often copied: this is a 100% garuanteed, period-item that was recently uncovered at a private household. Just the first such neat item I ever had on offer!
Attractive - and not that easily encountered! - neatly maker- (ie. 'F&R'-) marked- and/or: 'semi-hollow-back'-pattern example of an: 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Bronze' as was produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'Frank u. Reif' This is a truly attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - neatly maker- (ie. 'F&R'-) marked- and/or: 'semi-hollow-back'-pattern example of an: 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Bronze' as was produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'Frank & Reif', in overall very nice, (albeit IMO only minimally used ie. worn-) condition. This example is executed in darker-, bronze-toned zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink') as to be expected and truly retains most of its original applied (somewhat matted-) finish and retains a superb age-patina (it was most certainly never cleaned nor polished). The - minimally converse-shaped- award naturally retains its period (and/or fully unaltered-) catch (-set-up) as can be seen on the pictures and shows as such all the charateristics of an IAB that was produced by the: 'Frank u. Reif'-company based in the town of Stuttgart. It is a typical example showing all features seen with badges by this desirable maker. The piece has naturally a functional-, steel-based pin as usually encountered with pieces by this maker: of additional interest is the fact that these particular awards show a spelling-mistake in the makers-designation: they show the text: 'Fank & Reif' on their back (see pictures). Simply a very attractive and/or honest, IAB 'hollow-back'-pattern example by a desirable maker!
Attractive - and not that easily encountered! - neatly maker- (ie. 'F.L.L.'-) marked example of an: 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber', being a detailed example as was produced by the maker: 'Friedrich Linden' This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - neatly maker- (ie. 'F.L.L.'-) marked example of an: 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber' (or IAB in silver) as was produced by the desirable maker: 'Friedrich Linden', that comes in an overall very nice, (albeit IMO minimally used ie. worn-) condition. This example is executed in (fairly tarnished-) silverished, zinc-based metal (ie.'Feinzink') and retains a fair bit of its silverish finish: it is however a bit dirty ie. stained but retains nevertheless a nice age-patina (it was most certainly never cleaned nor polished). As stated above does it deals with a typical, zinc-based example (ie. desirable 'variant' having a complete 'crimped-in catch- and/or hinge set-up-') as was produced by the: 'Friedrich Linden'-company based in the town of Lüdenscheid. It is a typical example showing all features seen with badges by this desirable maker. The piece has naturally a functional catch and/or silver-coloured pin as usually encountered with pieces by this maker. Simply a nice and honest, neatly ‘maker-marked’ silver-class IAB by a desirable maker!
Attractive - and not that easily encountered! - WH (Heeres) (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-/bluish-green-coloured background This is an attractive - and not that easily encountered! - WH (Heeres) (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-/bluish-green-coloured background, that comes in an overall very nice (IMO virtually mint-/unissued-) condition. The eagle is executed in white-coloured linnen on a greyish-/bluish-green-coloured (and also linnen-based-) background and saw usage directly after the 'Reichswehr'-period (I deem around 1935/36). It should be noted that especially these early-type cap-eagles are nowadays not easily encountered: something that merits IMO my asking-price. The piece was never mounted onto a cap and was naturally never pre-folded nor trimmed: it comes as 'straightly cut of the role' and just show some minimal fraying on the sides as more often encountered. Simply a very nice early-period-, 'Adler für Schiffchen' that is impossible to be upgraded!
Attractive - and not that easily found! - 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being a neat zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) version as was procuced by the: 'C.E. Juncker'- company This is an attractive - and IMO only moderately used and/or minimally tarnished - so-called: 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or: General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being a neat non-maker-marked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) version that was IMO procuced by the: 'C.E. Juncker'-company, in overall nice- (and IMO only moderately used ie. worn-), condition. The badge on offer here concerns an (IMO mid- ie. later-war-period-) zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based specimen that has lost most of its silver-coloured finish: the piece has a typical 'zinc-like'- appearance, showing nice detail and/or finish as to be expected. The badge has IMO never been cleaned nor polished (and is still also a tiny bit dirty ie. stained- ie. tarnished as mentioned above). As stated is the piece a non-maker-marked example that shows the various characteristics - such as for example the typically-shaped pin-set-up and/or: modelled catch (both attached on tiny plates) - as only seen on GABs as produced by the: 'C.E. Juncker'-company based in the town of Berlin: it shows a so called 'classic Junckers' pin-/pin-/catch set-up. The neat piece - which is very pronounced and has truly great pronounced 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 flea-market and was never before in a collection. It was most certainly never cleaned nor polished. Simply an attractive - and detailed! - 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB) as was produced by the 'C.E.Juncker'-company!
Attractive - and not that easily found! - 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being a neat zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) version as was procuced by the: 'Karl Wurster'- company This is an attractive - and IMO moderately used and/or minimally tarnished - so-called: 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or: General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being a neat maker- (ie. 'W'-) marked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) version that was procuced by the: 'Karl Wurster'-company, that comes in an overall nice- (and IMO only moderately used ie. worn-), condition. The badge on offer here concerns an (IMO mid- ie. later-war-period-) zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based specimen that has lost most of its silver-coloured finish: the piece has a typical 'zinc-like'- appearance, showing nice detail and/or finish as to be expected. The badge has IMO never been cleaned nor polished (and is still also a tiny bit dirty ie. stained- ie. tarnished as mentioned above). As stated is the piece a neatly maker- (ie. small 'W'-) marked example that shows the various characteristics - such as for example the typically-shaped pin-set-up and/or: modelled catch - as only seen on GABs as produced by the: 'Karl Wurster'-company: it is sometimes referred to as the: 'narrow block-hinge variant 1.17.2'. The neat piece - which is very pronounced and has truly great pronounced 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 flea-market and was never before part of a collection. It was most certainly never cleaned nor polished. Simply an attractive - and detailed! - 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB) as was produced by the 'Karl Wurster'-company!
Attractive - and not that often encountered! - brownish-red-toned- and/or: 'Meissen'-porcelain-based-, so-called: 'Erinnerungs- o. nichttragbare Medaille' bearing the text: 'Waffenruhe in Frankreich am 25. Juni, 1940' This is an attractive - and with certainty not that often encountered! - brownish-red-toned- and/or: 'Meissen'-porcelain-based-, so-called: commemorative-plaque (ie. 'Erinnerungs- o. nichttragbare Medaille') bearing the text: 'Waffenruhe in Frankreich am 25. Juni, 1940', and that comes in an overall very nice (and IMO most certainly issued- ie. awarded-), condition. The neat - medium-sized piece having an approximate diameter of approximately 5,1 cms. - has very pronounced detail and was IMO never cleaned nor polished: it has maintained a typical age-patina and is very detailed and/or pronounced (but also shows some regular tarnish - see pictures). These neat - IMO semi-official - presentation-pieces (which are sometimes referred to as: 'Böttger-Medaillen' after its designer) were IMO used as some sort of commemorative-awards. The piece originates from a private household in Germany where it was recently uncovered as issued and stored for decades. Simply a very attractive and with certainty unusually encountered 'Meissen-Porzellan'-based table-medal ie. 'Erinnerungs- o. nichttragbare Medaille'!
Attractive - and nowadays scarcely encountered! - example of a: 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Gold', being a non-maker-marked example as executed in golden-toned, so-called: 'Buntmetall' The badge is a non-maker-marked example that was executed in golden-toned-, so-called: 'Buntmetall'. It was most likely produced by the maker: 'Hauptmünzamt Wien'. The badge - which is executed in neat and/or fairly shiny 'Buntmetall' - shows only moderate wear and comes of course mounted on its fully functional- and/or typically (thin- ie. round-) shaped pin- as more often encountered on these by the: 'Hauptmünzamt Wien'-produced wound-badges. The badge is most certainly never cleaned and retains almost all its golden-toned finish (ie. is neatly so-called: 'Feuervergoldet'). It only shows some minimal tarnish and/or staining (it has however never been cleaned nor polished though - as can be seen on the pictures). These golden-class WBs can easily be graded: 'scarce'.

Attractive - and rarely encountered! - 2-pieced award-grouping comprising of a so-called: 'NSFK Modellflug-Leistungsabzeichen 2. Modell in Bronze' that comes with its matching 'Halbminiatur', both pieces bearing an award-number that reads: '0782' This is a very attractive - and with certainty very rarely encountered! - 2-pieced award-grouping, comprising of a so-called: 'NSFK'- (ie. 'National-Socialistisches Fliegerkorps'-) Modellflug-Leistungsabzeichen des 2. Modell in Bronze' (or: bronze-class model-airplane-badge of the second pattern) that comes with its matching miniature (ie. 'Halbminiatur'), both pieces bearing an identical (and unique!) award- ie. serial-number that reads: '0782' and that come both in a wonderfull- and/or fully untouched, condition. The larger-sized badge (having an approximate diameter of 4 cms.) is executed in golden-greyish-coloured-, zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink') and comes mounted on its functional and totally unaltered (copper-based-) pin- (ie. pin-/catch-) set-up. Next to its unique award- (ie. serial-) number that reads: '0782', the badge shows an (IMO) patent-pending-marking- ie. number (that reads: '261943') - as can be seen on the pictures. The (neatly golden-toned!) miniature (ie. 'Halbminiatur') has the same specifications as mentioned above but comes mounted on its long-sized pin (as can be seen on the pictures). Both rare badges have never been cleaned nor polished and come as recently found. Both are also pictured in the Heering-Hüsken lapel-pin-catalogue wherein both are given the respective reference-numbers '4129 I' (having an estimated value of: 500 Eu) and '4129 J' (having an estimated value of: 1200 Eu). There is not much reference-material known about these attractive 'NSFK'-related badges: I found a similar (matching) set offered for 1500 Eu (!). Simply a very attractive and matching 'NSFK Modellflug-Leistungsabzeichen 2. Modell in Bronze'-set which is IMO absolutely accordingly priced!
Attractive - and rarely encountered! - breast-badge as executed in 'BeVo-weave' pattern, as was intended for members within the 'N.S.D.A.P. Reichsautozug' (or: 'RaZ') still retaining its paper-based 'RzM'-etiket This is a very nice specimen of the very rarely encountered breast-badge as executed in the so-called: 'BeVo-weave' pattern, as was intended for usage by members within the 'N.S.D.A.P. Reichsautozug' (or: 'RaZ'), still retaining its paper-based 'RzM'-etiket, in very nice (ie. stonemint-/unissued-) condition. This organisation was named the 'N.S.D.A.P. Reichsautozug' (or: 'RaZ') and was likely the smallest party-related formation within the Third Reich. Although it was a formation that was infact more related to the SA ('Sturmabteilungen'), it was attached to the N.S.D.A.P. headquarters based in Münich. It most likely never numbered more than 200 members. This organisation was in charge of furnishing and setting-up all that was necessary to handle a large-scale party rally. Their responsibilities included setting-up and maintaining audio systems, seating, shelter and housing, field kitchens and/or latrines. The breast-badge on offer here is a stonemint, unissued example (which is sized: 11,5 x 6 cms.) that still retains its original paper-based 'RzM'-etiket ('B-Stück'): it has extraordinary detail and simply cannot be upgraded. This is the just the third such rare badge I ever have encountered. Simply a very nice and rare N.S.D.A.P.-related badge that simply cannot be upgraded!
Attractive - and rarely encountered! - bright golden-toned- and/or steel-based, WH 'Kriegsmarine' belt-buckle, being a non-marker-marked example having a so-called: 'cranked-catch'-set-up The neat bright golden-toned (ie. 'Feuervergoldeter') and/or steel-based belt-buckle was with certainty issued and/or used as such but retains nevertheless a fair bit (ie. most!) of its typical bright- and/or shiny golden-toned finish: some minimal wear, age and/or minimal 'finish-loss' is present simply caused by decades of storage ie. handling and/or fair wear and/or usage. The piece is still a bit dusty but was most certainly never cleaned nor polished and comes as found. The buckle is a non-maker-marked example that shows a neat (variant-pattern!) so-called: 'cranked-catch'-set-up (see pictures). For (by me) unclear reasons rank these original, neatly golden-toned KM-buckles amongst the more rarely TR-buckles to be encountered to date: something that explains their desirability and/or fairly high asking-prices. I deem that I have priced this attractive - albeit used but rarely seen - 'variant-pattern' example accordingly!
Attractive - and rarely encountered! - DLV- (ie. 'Deutsches Luftsport Verband'-) related, neatly hand-embroidered-, trade- ie. special-career-patch, as was intended for a: 'Segel-Modelflug-Aufseher der II. Klasse' This is an attractive - and rarely encountered! - example of a DLV- (ie. 'Deutsches Luftsport Verband'-) related-, neatly hand-embroidered-, trade- ie. special-career-patch, as was intended for a: 'Segel-Modelflug-Aufseher der II. Klasse' (or: model sailplane examiner of the second pattern), that comes in an overall nice, condition. The rare patch is neatly hand-embroidered in greyish-white-coloured linnen on a bluish-grey coloured- and/or woolen-based (ie. Luftwaffe-type-), background. The patch - which has a black-coloured (also linnen-based) backing as more often encountered - hardly shows wear nor age. This particular example originated from a larger cloth- and/or shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. I could not find more detailed reference-material for these type of patches (of which at least 3 classes apparently existed). Simply a neat - and actually scarcely encountered! - DLV- (ie. 'Deutsches Luftsport Verband'-) trade- and/or special-career patch!
Attractive - and rarely encountered! - example of a Waffen-SS, 'semi-BeVo'-type, enlisted-mens'-type cuff-title (ie. 'Ärmelstreifen') for the Waffen-SS field-police-units entitled: 'SS-Feldgendarmerie' This is a truly attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - example of a Waffen-SS, 'semi-BeVo'-type, enlisted-mens'-type cuff-title (ie. 'Ärmelstreifen') for the Waffen-SS field-police-units, entitled: 'SS-Feldgendarmerie', that comes in an overall very nice (IMO virtually mint- ie. unissued-), condition. The cuff-title - which is as stated of the typical so-called: 'semi-BeVo'-type as to be expected - is in a truly wonderfull condition overall: it comes in a full-length condition and measures approximately 44 cms. in length: both ends are unfinished and do show some minimal fraying as is more often seen. The piece shows some minimal staining but is in an overall very nice condition (as can be seen on the pictures). I have seen these sell for much more than my asking-price. Simply a 100% guaranteed, genuine 'Waffen-SS'-related cuff-title that is IMO fairly and/or accordingly priced: only the first such Waffen-SS field-police-related 'Ärmelstreifen' I ever had on offer!
Attractive - and rarely encountered! - later-war-period-, WH (Heeres) ie. 'officers'-type-, so-called: 'M44'-pattern-, trapezoid-shaped breasteagle, being a silver-coloured example as executed in neat 'BeVo'-weave, flat-wire-pattern This is a neat - and actually rarely encountered item: a later-war-period-, WH (Heeres) ie. 'officers'-type-, so-called: 'M44'-pattern-, trapezoid-shaped breasteagle, being a silver-coloured example as executed in neat 'BeVo'-weave, flat-wire-pattern on a field-grey-coloured background that comes in a virtually mint- ie. unissued, condition. The piece on offer here was never folded- nor trimmed and comes as straigthly 'cut-off the role' (see pictures). This was the 'standard'-issue WH-eagle as was intended for usage on the various officers-type tunics and that was intended to replace the more common-type (and as such was much easier to apply). The piece on offer here was never issued: it bears some truly minimal staining (and shows one tiny hole) simply caused by years of storage only. I deem that I have priced this interesting - and with certainty rarely seen! - 'officers'-related-, so-called: 'M44'-pattern breast-eagle accordingly!
Attractive - and rarely encountered! - later-war-period-, WH (Heeres) ie. 'officers'-type-, so-called: 'M44'-pattern-, trapezoid-shaped breasteagle, being a silver-coloured example as executed in neat 'BeVo'-weave, flat-wire-pattern This is a neat - and actually rarely encountered item: a later-war-period-, WH (Heeres) ie. 'officers'-type-, so-called: 'M44'-pattern-, trapezoid-shaped breasteagle, being a silver-coloured example as executed in neat 'BeVo'-weave, flat-wire-pattern on a darker-green-coloured background that comes in a virtually mint- ie. unissued, condition. The piece on offer here was never folded- nor trimmed and comes as straigthly 'cut-off the role' (see pictures). This was the 'standard'-issue WH-eagle as was intended for usage on the various officers-type tunics and that was intended to replace the more common-type (and as such was much easier to apply). The piece on offer here was never issued: it bears some truly minimal staining, simply caused by years of storage only.

Attractive - and rarely encountered! - medium-sized-, so-called: 'Anerkennungs- urkunde', as was issued: 'zur Errinerung an die Erfolgreichen Nachtgefechte mit britischen Bombern', as was awarded to the: 'Obergefreiten' Oskar Folz This is a very attractive - and with certainty encountered! - medium-sized- (ie. 20,5 x 14 cms. sized) so-called: 'Anerkennungsurkunde' (or: recognition award-document) as was apparently issued: 'zur Errinerung an die Erfolgreichen Nachtgefechte mit britischen Bombern' (being an official recognition award-document, as was awarded to recognise heroic actions ie. succesfull nightly anti-aircraft-combat with ie. against British airplanes), as was awarded to the: 'Obergefreiten' Oskar Folz, who was a member within a: WH (Luftwaffe ie. Kriegsmarine) 'Flak-Artillerie'- (anti-aircraft) unit, stationed on the island of Norderney, that comes in an overall nice condition. The neat - and truly very decorative (and as stated medium-sized-) award-document is of a neat: 'Vordrück'- (ie. pre-printed-) model (showing a printed illustration of a: 'Flak-Batterie' in action over night - see picture) and comes in a nice condition overall: it has just a bit 'yellowed' over the years. The document is neatly filled-in (by hand) and is (IMO) signed (facismile-signature) by the: 'Korvettenkapitän u. Kommandant im Abschnitt Norderney', named: M.A. Treichel. It is also 'counter-signed' (as is more often seen) by Folzs' commanding-officer being an (unidentified) 'Hauptmann' (ie. captain) and/or: 'Batteriechef'. The document is not hole-punched nor denazified and is as stated just a bit 'yellowed' ie. stained (it is executed on sligthly thicker carton-based paper). The document is dual ink-stamped: one of the (clear) ink-stamps reads: 'Kriegsmarine - Der Kommandant im Abschnitt Norderney' whereas the other is (presumably) from Folzs'’ unit ie. the: 'Flak-Batterie' being the: '3./L.Res.Flak.Abt.'. I deem that this attractive award-document most certainly merits further investigation. This particular piece was IMO issued for 10 succesful 'Abschusse' (hits) as can be read in the text. Simply a very attractive and surely uncommonly encountered award-document ie. 'Anerkennungsurkunde' as was issued to an: 'Obergefreiten' ie. 'Flak-Artillerie'-soldier who was presumably stationed at the German island of Norderney!
Attractive - and rarely encountered! - NSKK- (ie. 'National-Socialistisches Kraftfahr-Korps'-) related armbadge, as was intended for a: 'NSKK Sanitäts-Unterführer o. Mann' (ie. 'Feldscher'), as executed in neat 'BeVo'- weave pattern This is a truly attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - NSKK- (ie. 'National-Socialistisches Kraftfahr-Korps'-) related armbadge, as was woven in silver-coloured- (so-called: 'flat-wire'-pattern-) braid on a black-coloured background, as was intended for a: 'NSKK Sanitäts-Unterführer o. Mann' - ie. 'Feldscher', as was executed in neat 'BeVo'- weave pattern, in overall nice, albeit clearly used- ie. shirt-removed-, condition. The nicely woven insignia is only sized: 6,3 x 4 cms. and comes as stated in a clearly used- ie. shirt-removed- condition: it is neatly 'pre-folded' but misses its paper-based-, so-called: 'RzM'-etiket as is more often seen (the remains are, however, still present and/or visible - see pictures). Simply an attractive - and actually truly rarely encountered! - NSKK- (ie. 'National-Socialistisches Kraftfahr-Korps'-) related armbadge: only the first such neat badge I ever had on offer!
Attractive - and rarely encountered! - NSS (ie. 'Nationalsocialistische Schwestern- schaft') membership-badge as executed in genuine '800'-marked silver, as was specifically intended for: 'Lernschwester und Anwärterinnen' (trainees) This is an attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - so-called: NSS (ie. 'National- socialistische Schwesternschaft' or: German nurses'-association) membership-badge as executed in genuine '800'-marked silver, as was specifically intended for: 'Lernschwester und Anwärterinnen' (trainees), that comes in an overall nice albeit clearly worn- and regrettably incomplete-, condition. The badge - being of the smaller- ie. medium-sized (ie. 32 mm. sized-) version - shows a neatly engraved bearers'-number that reads: 'L5941' (see pictures). As stated is the badge executed in genuine silver and is also accordingly '800'-marked on the back (see photos). The badge shows no real damage whatsoever: it just shows some minor scratches ie. wear-marks caused by regular wear: it regrettably misses its pin. The piece is not maker-marked but shows a neat: 'Ges.Gesch.' patent-pending mark as is more often encountered. A similar badge is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken' lapel-pin catalogue, were it is given a unique number (5624G) and an estimated value of 250 Eu. The badge was IMO once cleaned but still retains a nice and very detailed appearance. As stated is this the medium-sized version (having an approximate diameter of 3,2 cms.). Still a very nice and honest example of this rare badge: only the third such NSS-related badge I ever had of offer!
Attractive - and rarely encountered! - WH (Heeres) 'Ärmelabzeichen für Angehörige des Sonderverbandes 287 o. 288', being a virtually mint- ie. unissued example as executed in so-called: 'BeVo'-weave pattern This is a truly rarely encountered and/or equally desirable WH (Heeres) 'BeVo'-woven armbadge that is known as: 'Ärmelabzeichen für Angehörige des Sonderverbandes 28 o. 288', in overall very nice (and IMO virtually mint-/unissued-) condition. This special unit (ie. aka 'Sonderverband 288' was raised on July 1st, 1941 at Potsdam (near Berlin) and was composed of units from all over Germany. This unit simply named: '288' or: 'z.b.V. 288', was also known as: 'Combat Group Menton', after its commander. It originally contained crack-units from all branches of the German army: anti-tank men, mountain-troops, engineers, and eventually three of the new 'StuG. III' assault-guns. There was also a company of so-called: 'Brandenburgers', special troops trained for special operations behind enemy lines. These units were intended to prepare the way for the DAK as it flowed across the Nile and into the Middle East and on to India. Their most important component was a group of interpreters with their own printing presses. These men knew all the languages that would be needed, from Arabic and Persian dialects to Hindi, Urdi and Sanskrit. There was also a specialized group who had been trained to seize and rebuild the oil-fields of the region. When it became obvious that Rommel's rush to the Nile was not going to be a cake walk, the 288th minus its interpreters and technicians was sent to Africa as special reinforcements. During the 'Gazala Line' battles the '288th' saw action supporting the Italian 'Ariete' against the French forces defending Bir Hacheim at the southern tip of the British defenses. They also participated in the El Alamein battles, and the last of their 'StuG.IIIs' was left behind for the British to contemplate. By October 31, the 'Sonderverband 288' was reorganized and renamed: 'Panzer-Grenadier-Regiment “Afrika”. The armbadge on offer here is very nicely woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique and is a truly beautiful example of this fantastice technique. The badge is in a stonemint-/unissued condition and comes as 'straightly cut-of the role' (it is NOT trimmed nor folded). The badge on offer here is naturally a 100% period and/or genuine example for which I give a life-time garuantee. Simply a truly nice and rarely encountered WH (Heeres) armbadge!
Attractive - and rarely encountered! - WH (Heeres) (very early- ie. pre-war-period-) white-coloured breast-eagle as was executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern on a greyish-/green-coloured background This is a very attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - WH (Heeres) (very early- ie. pre-war-period-) white-coloured breast-eagle as was executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern on a greyish-/green-coloured background, in an overall very nice (IMO virtually mint-/unissued-) condition. The eagle is executed in white-coloured linnen on a greyish-/green-coloured (and also linnen-based-) background and saw usage directly after the 'Reichswehr'-period (I deem around 1935/36). It should be noted that especially these early-type breast-eagles are nowadays very hard to encounter: something that merits IMO my asking price. The piece was never mounted onto a tunic and was naturally never pre-folded nor trimmed: it comes as 'straightly cut of the role' and just show some minimal fraying on the sides as more often encountered. Simply a very nice early-period 'Heeres' breast-eagle that is impossible to be upgraded!
Attractive - and rarely seen! - 2-pieced set comprising of a 'BeVo'-type armshield entitled: 'Armenien' and a clear portrait-postcard-/ie. photo, depicting a volunteer ie. NCO who served within the: 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. within the 'Armenisches Legion' This particular armshield - showing a red-, blue- and/or golden-yellow-coloured shield with above the (German) text: 'Armenien' - is neatly woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique and comes as being straightly cut from the roll (it shows a tiny mis-cut in the upper-right corner but is not damaged (see pictures). These - original - 'official' arm-shields as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo'!) can be easily considered 'scarce'. This (virtually mint-/unissued-) example came together with a neat (and rarely encountered!) period- and clear portrait-postcard-/ie. photo, depicting a volunteer who served within the: 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' ie. within the 'Armenisches Legion', who is wearing a similar shield on his upper right-arm (see pictures). This picture - which is void of any writing on the back - measures 13,5 x 9 cms. Next to the shield being worn the soldier (ie. NCO-) also shows a standard-issue pattern M43 field-cap and his decorations (ie. 'Band-/Feldspange'). The price is naturally intended for both armshield and/or portrait: simply a very attractive and/or rarely encountered volunteer-grouping that is related to the: 'Armenisches Legion'!
Attractive - and scacrely encounterd! - example of a WH (Heeres) so-called: 'M42-model' side-cap (or: 'Schiffchen'), having an original 'T-shaped'-eagle 'trapezoid', period-attached by hand This is an attractive example of a WH (Heeres) so-called: 'M42-model' side-cap (or: 'Schiffchen'), having a so-called: 'T-shaped' trapezoid-eagle period-attached by hand, in overall nice (ie. IMO moderately used- ie. clearly worn-) condition. The side-cap - which is executed in 'regular'-type-, field-grey-coloured 'Heeres' woolen-cloth having two zinc-based and/or field-grey coloured 'vent-holes' as prescribed per regulation - shows truly no damage nor mothing whatsoever: it just shows some age-, wear and/or minimal staining as to be expected. It shows furthermore a somewhat shiny-, silver-grey-coloured (and/or linnen-based-) lining that is void of any maker- ie. date-stamp (I deem that it was once present but was presumably washed-out over the years). The cap - which retains both its originally attached, green-couloured and/or 'pebbled-style' cap-buttons - is a fairly small-sized example that measures (IMO) 54/55 cms. (which is a size that nevertheless would still fit a mannequin) and shows a neat, field-grey-coloured 'T'- ie. trapezoid- shaped eagle/cocarde, which is (IMO) period- albeit fairly crudely attached by means of hand-stitching (see pictures). The piece shows as stated only minimal age, wear and/or staining (caused by moderate wear and/or years of storage). Simply a very nice and naturally 100% garuanteed, original example of this (at the time rather impopular-) side-cap that is IMO hard to be upgraded. I deem that this extraordinary piece of headgear is accordingly priced.
Attractive - and scarcely encountered albeit regrettably single! - bright-green-coloured- (and/or bright-red piped-) WH (Luftwaffe) collar-patch (ie. 'Kragenspiegel') as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der LW-Felddivisionen' This is an attractive - and scarcely encountered albeit regrettably single! - bright-green-coloured- (and/or bright-red piped-) WH (Luftwaffe) collar-patch (ie. 'Kragenspiegel') as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der LW-Felddivisionen', that comes in an overall very nice- (IMO virtually mint- and/or IMO never tunic-attached-), condition. The collar-tab is executed in bright-green-coloured- (smooth- ie. 'moleskin'-like-) wool and was as such intended for usage by a soldier (or NCO) belonging to one of the the late-war-period so-called: 'Luftwaffe-Felddivisionen' (or later-war-period, LW infantry-units or ground-troops). The patch shows a single-pieced- (greyish-coloured- and/or 'Feinzink'-based-) gull attached and has the 'standard'-pattern-, brownish-yellow-coloured- and/or 'buckram'-based 'backing' attached (see pictures). The tab is, moreover, nicely piped with bright-red-coloured piping (which is executed in the neat 'rayon'-like pattern) something that (IMO) most certainly signified artillery- (ie. 'Artillerie'-) usage. Simply a very nice and desirable LW 'Felddivisionen'-collar-tab that is actually not that easily encountered: too bad that it is only a single piece!

Attractive - and scarcely encountered albeit regrettably single! - bright-green-coloured- (and/or white piped-) WH (Luftwaffe) collar-patch (ie. 'Kragenspiegel') as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der LW-Felddivisionen' I recently uncovered two - fully identical albeit regrettably single! - examples of the bright-green-coloured- (and/or white piped-) WH (Luftwaffe) collar-patches (ie. 'Kragenspiegel') as were intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der LW-Felddivisionen', that come both in an overall very nice- (IMO virtually mint- and/or IMO never tunic-attached-), condition. The collar-tabs are both executed in bright-green-coloured- (smooth- ie. 'moleskin'-like-) wool and were as such intended for usage by a soldier (or NCO) belonging to one of the the late-war-period so-called: 'Luftwaffe-Felddivisionen' (or later-war-period, LW infantry-units or ground-troops). The patches show each a single (greyish-coloured- and/or 'Feinzink'-based-) gull attached and have the 'standard'-pattern-, brownish-yellow-coloured- and/or 'buckram'-based 'backings' attached (see pictures). The tabs are, moreover, nicely piped with white coloured piping (which is executed in the neat 'rayon'-like pattern) something that (IMO) most certainly signified infantry- (ie. 'Infanterie'-) usage. My asking-price is naturally intended for one single tab. Simply a very nice and desirable LW 'Felddivisionen'-collar-tab that is actually not that easily encountered: too bad that it is only a single piece!
Attractive - and scarcely encountered and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), IMO early-war- ie. pre-war-period (ie. 'M36'-model and/or rounded-style-) EM-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for a: 'Soldat der Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs-Trpn.' This is a truly attractive - and actually scarcely encountered and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), IMO early-war- (ie. pre-war-period ie. 'M36'-model and/or rounded-style-) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps as piped in the neat golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs-Truppen' (or simple cavalry- ie. reconnaisance-soldier), in overall very nice (ie. IMO only moderately used- ie. worn-) condition. The neat schoulderstraps - which have the 'standard'-pattern-, darker-green coloured- and/or smooth-woolen-based 'upperdecks' - have the golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured- (and/or woolen-type-) piping attached (see pictures). The straps measure approximately 11,2 cms. in length each. The straps - which are of the regular-issued - (ie. non-private-production-type!) - come mounted on their functional tongues and come of course in a very nice, ie. fully 'text-book' condition overall. The set shows - as stated above - only moderate wear and/or age: they were clearly used and do show some minimal age, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a great occasion to acquire a very nice and with certainty desirable 'Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs'-related enlisted-mens'-type pair that was never before in a collection: I do not exactly know for what reason but these 'simple' 'Soldat der Kavallerie- o.

The neat schoulderstraps - which have the 'standard'-pattern-, darker-green coloured- and/or smooth-woolen-based 'upperdecks' - have the neat white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured- (and/or woolen-type-) piping attached. The straps each measure approximately 11,3 cms. in length. The straps - which are of the regular-issued - (ie. non-private-production-type!) - come mounted on their functional tongues and are of course in a nice, ie. fully 'text-book' condition overall. The set shows - as stated above - only moderate wear and/or age: they were clearly used and do show some age, wear and/or staining and/or minimal moth-damage on one of the tongues (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a great occasion to acquire a neat and with certainty desirable 'Infanterie'-related enlisted-mens'-type pair that was never before in a collection: I do not exactly know for what reason but these 'simple' 'Soldat der Infanterie-Truppen'-shoulderstrap-pairs can easily be considered 'fairly scarce'!

Attractive - and scarcely encountered! - 'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') ie. 'BDM' (or: 'Bund Deutscher Mädel') district-triangle (ie. 'Gebietsdreieck') entitled: 'Mitte Thüringen' This is a 'female'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in white-coloured linnen on a black-coloured- (and also linnen-based-) background. This example was IMO with certainty used and/or once tunic-attached and regrettably misses its paper-based-, so-called: 'RzM-etiket'. Moreover, does it show three (black-coloured- and metal-based- 'snaps' attached on its back (attached in order to easily remove- or attach it to a shirt or tunic - see pictures). It should be noted that these 'exotic' BDM-district-triangles rank amongst the more difficult youth-triangles of the extensive 'Gebietsdreiecke'-series to encounter. This particular 'BDM'-piece can easily be graded: 'scarce'. I deem that I priced this example according to its comparative rarity and/or desirability!
Attractive - and scarcely encountered! - 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Gold', being a non-maker-marked, 'Buntmetall' example, that comes stored in its clearly maker- (ie. 'Hauptmünzamt Wien'-) marked etui This is a truly very attractive - and nowadays fairly scarcely encountered! - example of a: 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Gold' (or golden wound badge), being a non-marked example as was executed in golden-toned-, so-called: 'Buntmetall' which comes stored in its black-coloured and/or nicely maker-marked etui by the maker: 'Hauptmünzamt Wien' as issued and/or found, in overall very nice and/or IMO only moderately used ie. worn-, condition. The badge - which is executed in neat and/or fairly shiny 'Buntmetall' - shows only minimal wear and has of course a fully functional and typically (thin- ie. round-) shaped pin- as more often encountered on these by the: 'Hauptmünzamt Wien'-produced wound-badges. The badge is most certainly never cleaned and retains all its golden finish (ie. is neatly so-called: 'Feuervergoldet'). It only shows some minimal tarnish (it has never been cleaned nor polished though). The black-coloured (simulated leather-based-) carton etui - scarce in itself! - is also in an overall very nice albeit moderately used condition (it is somewhat dusty ie. dirty simply caused by years of storage). The etui - which also shows a neat blue-coloured paper 'makers-sticker' on the back ie. bottom as more often (see pictures) - has a white- ie. creme-coloured (simulated 'velvet') interior: the top-lid shows a vague but present imprint of the badge (that was most certainly stored in this manner for decades). Simply a very nice and surely desirable, golden WB-set that is nowadays not that easy to encounter: I deem that I have priced this attractive set accordingly!

Attractive - and scarcely encountered! - example of a 'boxed', 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Gold', being a neatly maker- (ie. '30'- or: 'Hauptmünzamt Wien') marked example as executed in golden-coloured, so-called: 'Buntmetall' The neat badge is as stated a nicely maker-marked example that was executed in (darker-) golden-toned-, so-called: 'Buntmetall'. It was with certainty produced by the maker (or: 'Hersteller') named: 'Hauptmünzamt' based in the Austrian town of Wien (ie. Vienna). The badge - which is executed in neat and/or fairly shiny, so-called: 'Buntmetall' - shows only moderate wear and comes of course mounted on its fully functional- and/or typically thin-shaped pin as is more often encountered on these by the: 'Hauptmünzamt Wien'-produced wound-badges (see pictures). The badge is most certainly never cleaned and retains almost all its golden-toned finish (ie. is neatly so-called: 'Feuervergoldet'). It only shows some minimal tarnish and/or staining (it has however never been cleaned nor polished though - as can be seen on the pictures). These golden-class WBs as produced by the maker: 'Hauptmünzamt Wien' can easily be graded: 'scarce'. The piece was recently found at a German private household and came still 'packed' ie. stored in its neat - and actually equally scarcely encountered! - bordeaux-red-coloured etui as issued and kept for decades. This - unmarked - etui shows the signs of having been stored with the WB in it and is in an overall, equally nicely preserved, condition: it is fully functional and has a nicely preserved, red-coloured- (ie. velvet-based-) interior-section (see pictures). Simply an attractive and/or with certainty desirable 'boxed' 'Buntmetall'-based example: hard to find a nicer and truly untouched set for a more interesting price!
Attractive - and scarcely encountered! - example of a 'boxed', 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Gold', being a non-maker-marked example as was executed in golden-coloured, so-called: 'Tombak' ie.

The badge - which is executed in neat and/or fairly shiny, so-called: 'Buntmetall' - shows only moderate wear and comes of course mounted on its fully functional- and/or: typically, thin-shaped pin as is more often encountered on these wound-badges (see pictures). The badge is most certainly never cleaned and retains almost all its golden-toned finish (ie. is neatly so-called: 'Feuer- vergoldet'). It only shows some minimal tarnish and/or staining (it has however never been cleaned nor polished though - as can be seen on the pictures).

This inner-section comes loosely fitted into the box and can be taken-out and shows an impressed number (as to be expected). Simply an attractive and/or with certainty desirable 'boxed' 'Buntmetall'-based example: hard to find a nicer and truly untouched set for a more interesting price!
Attractive - and scarcely encountered! - fully matching, pair of 'Ostvölker'- (ie. 'ROA'-) related shoulderboards, showing the bright-red-coloured piping and two horizontally-mounted rank-stripes - very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued-) condition! This is a truly attractive - and scarcely encountered! - fully matching, pair of 'Ostvölker'- (ie. 'ROA'-) related shoulderboards, showing the neat bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter') coloured and 'silk-like'-type piping and two horizontally-mounted rank-stripes attached, in overall very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued-) condition. The shoulderboards - which measure 10,5 cms. in length each - are constructed by using a 'standard-type' WH (Heeres) pair of 'Artillerie'-related M43-model, enlisted-mens' shoulderboards (having field-grey coloured 'upperdecks') that show two horizontally-mounted rank-stripes (constructed from silver-coloured NCO-braid) attached. I deem that these rank-stripes are 'off-factory' attached. The set was with certainty intended for a soldier that belonged to one of the various 'Ostvölker'- (ie. 'ROA'-) related units. This 'Russian Liberation Army' or 'POA' (which is Cyrilic for: 'ROA') was one of the (welcome and needed-) allies of the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'. The neat pair on offer here was truly never used and is void of any damage nor wear-/age. Simply a very attractive - and scarcely encountered! - pair of of 'Ostvölker'- (ie. 'ROA'-) related shoulderboards!
Attractive - and scarcely encountered! - fully matching, pair of (IMO) 'Ostvölker'- (ie. 'ROA'-) related shoulderstraps, showing the white-coloured piping and four horizontally-mounted 'rank-stripes' attached - overall nice condition! This is a truly attractive - and most certainly very scarcely encountered! - fully matching, pair of (IMO) 'Ostvölker'- (ie. possibly 'ROA'-) related shoulderstraps, showing the neat white- (ie. 'weisser') coloured and/or 'silk-like'-type piping and four horizontally-mounted and/or also white-coloured 'rank-stripes' attached, in overall nice (ie. moderately used- ie. worn-) condition. The shoulderstraps - which measure 11,2 cms. in length each - are constructed by using a 'standard-type' pair of WH (Heeres) 'Infanterie'-related M43-model, enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps (having field-grey coloured 'upperdecks') upon which four horizontally-mounted, 'rank-stripes' are attached (attached by hand-stitching and constructed from white-coloured linnen ie. NCO-braid). The set was with certainty intended for a soldier (ie. NCO) that belonged to one of the various 'Ostvölker'- (ie. 'ROA'-) related units. This 'Russian Liberation Army' or 'POA' (which is Cyrilic for: 'ROA') was one of the (welcome and needed-) allies of the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'. The neat pair on offer here was clearly used and shows some regular age, wear and/or staining but is void of any real damage. Simply a very attractive - and most certainly very scarcely encountered! - pair of of 'Ostvölker'- (ie. 'ROA'-) related shoulderstraps: I deem that I have this possibvly unique pair according to its obvious rarity and/or desirability!
Attractive - and scarcely encountered! - national emblem (ie. breast-badge ie. 'Hoheitsabzeichen') as intended for the various 'Eastern Volunteers' (ie. 'Ostvölker-Truppen'), as executed in neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - national emblem (ie. breast-badge or: 'Hoheitsabzeichen') as was intended for the various 'Eastern Volunteers' (ie. 'Ostvölker-Truppen'), as executed in neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern, in overall very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued-) condition. This breast-badge - intended to replace the standard pattern 'regular' breast-eagle - was introduced in late 1942. Although definetely worn and issued, its use was not common practice, something that explaines it comparative rarity. This example is in a virtually mint-/unissued condition and cannot be upgraded: it comes as 'straightly cut-off the role'. Simply a very nice and fairly scarcely encountered breast-badge: it has been some time that I had a similar badge on offer!

Attractive - and scarcely encountered! - OT- (ie. 'Organisation Todt'-) related, so-called: 'M43-pattern'-cap-trapezoid, as executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern on a greenish-/brown-coloured background The neat - and with certainty not that often-seen! - piece was intended for usage on the various greenish-/brown-coloured, so-called: 'M43-pattern' (OT- ie. 'Organisation Todt'-) field-caps and comes in a very nice condition, overall. The piece was IMO once cap-attached and comes in a carefully pre-folded condition (as can be seen on the pictures). This example just shows some minimal staining simply caused by years of storage and minimal wear (it was as stated above IMO once attached to a cap by hand-stitching). Simply a very attractive 'Organisation Todt'-related and/or trapezoid-shaped cap-badge that can easily be used to restore any greenish-/brown-coloured 'OT-Einheitsmütze' or that is ideally fitted to be stored in any insignia-collection: I deem that I have priced this attractive specimen accordingly!
Attractive - and scarcely encountered! - RAD (ie. 'Reichsarbeitsdienst') so-called: 'Dienstzweigabzeichen' (or trade-badge) as was intended for a: 'Verwaltungs'-official (ie. administrative officer) This is a truly attractive - and actually scarcely encountered and/or surely issued - so-called RAD (ie. 'Reichsarbeitsdienst') officers’-type-, 'Dienstzweigabzeichen' (or trade- ie. specialist-badge) that was intended for usage by a: 'Verwaltungs'- (ie. administrative-) official and/or officer, and that comes in a nicely confectioned- and/or clearly worn ie. folded, condition (stitching-remains are still visible). The neat badge - which is of the officers ie. 'flat-wire' woven-type - and that is as such executed in silver on a brownish-green-coloured ie. tan background - was most certainly worn and shows some minimal usage- ie. wear-marks as to be expected. This badge was probably introduced in 1940 and was only worn for a short period of time. Additionally, does this patch show an interwoven: 'Ges.Gesch.'- and/or RAD-logo (something that is not always the case). Simply a nice – and with certainty scarcely encountered! - piece of officers’-type, RAD (ie. 'Reichsarbeitsdienst') cloth-insignia: only the first such neat badge I did ever encounter!
Attractive - and scarcely encountered! - semi-colourfull- (ie. N.S.D.A.P.-related-), commemorative-, period-postcard entitled: 'Erinnerung an den Reichsparteitag der N.S.D.A.P. - Nürnberg 5.-10. Sept. 1934' The neat card - showing a picture or illustration of castle in the town of Nürnberg - is in an overall nice (albeit used- ie. sent-) condition - shows some written text on the back: it also shows minimal staining caused by decades of storage only (see pictures). The card shows a green-coloured German postage-stamp (see pictures). The card was naturally specifically issued in order to commemorate the yearly party-day or: 'Reichsparteitag 1934'. It should be noted that these (fairly early-period!) cards are not that easily encountered and can easily be graded: 'fairly scarce'. Simply an attractive - and with certainty decorative! - N.S.D.A.P.-related postcard that is IMO priced according to its desirability and/or comparative scarcity!
Attractive - and scarcely encountered! - semi-colourfull- (ie. N.S.D.A.P.-related-), commemorative-, period-postcard entitled: 'Reichsparteitag GrossDeutschland Nürnberg 1938' The neat card - showing an artist impression of the golden-coloured 'Reichsadler'-symbol mounted on a background of hanging swastika-flags - comes in an overall nice (albeit used- ie. sent-) condition - shows some written text on the back: it also shows minimal staining caused by decades of storage only (see pictures). The card shows a green-coloured German postage-stamp and shows the printed text: 'Reichsparteitag Nürnberg' on its back (see pictures). The card was naturally specifically issued in order to commemorate the yearly party-day or: 'Reichsparteitag 1938'.

The card was naturally specifically issued in order to commemorate the yearly party-day or: 'Reichsparteitag 1934'. It should be noted that these (fairly early-period!) cards are not that easily encountered and can easily be graded: 'fairly scarce'. Simply an attractive - and with certainty decorative! - N.S.D.A.P.-related postcard that is IMO priced according to its desirability and/or comparative scarcity!
Attractive - and scarcely encountered! - semi-colourfull- (ie. WH (Heeres) 'Gebirgs- jäger'-related-), commemorative-, period-postcard showing a painting and being entitled: 'Gebirgs-Jäger-Regiment 98 - Mittenwald' The neat card - showing an artist impression of a group of mountain-troop soldiers (ie. 'Gebirgsjäger') in action - comes in an overall very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued and/or never sent-, condition. It is totally void of any written text on the back and just shows minimal staining caused by decades of storage only (see pictures). It should be noted that these decorative, regimental commemorative cards are not that easily encountered and can easily be graded: 'fairly scarce'.

September' (1939) The neat card - showing an illustration of the design as was used on the famous 'tinnie' showing a mother- and child with above an eagle-/swastika-sign - comes in an overall very nice (and/or never used- nor sent-) condition: it is totally void of text on its back but does show (truly) minimal staining caused by decades of storage only (see pictures). The card bears an (integrated) brown-coloured-, German postage-stamp. The card was naturally specifically issued in order to commemorate the yearly party-day or: 'Reichs- parteitag 1939' (which was actually never held!).

Attractive - and scarcely encountered! - Waffen-SS Panzer, so-called: 'M43-pattern'-cap-trapezoid, as executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern on a black-coloured background and bearing an interwoven: 'BeVo-Wuppertal'-marking The neat piece - which was intended for usage on the various black-coloured 'M43-pattern' (Waffen-SS- Panzer) caps - comes in a very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued- and/or: totally unconfectioned-) condition: it comes as: 'straightly cut-off the role' (see pictures). This example just shows some minimal staining simply caused by years of storage only (it was never 'pre-folded' nor used). This is the neat 'variant-pattern', showing a 'single-row of teeth' (see pictures). Simply a very attractive Waffen-SS-Panzer-related and/or trapezoid-shaped cap-badge that can easily be used to restore any black-coloured 'Einheitsmütze' or ideally fitted to be stored in any Waffen-SS cloth-insignia collection: I deem that I have priced this attractive specimen accordingly!
Attractive - and scarcely encountered! - Waffen-SS, so-called: 'M43-pattern'-cap-trapezoid, as executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern on a field-grey-coloured background The neat and not that often seen piece - which was intended for usage on the various field-grey-coloured, so-called: 'M43-pattern' (Waffen-SS-) caps - comes in a very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued- and/or: totally unconfectioned-) condition: it comes as: 'straightly cut-off the role' (see pictures). This example just shows some minimal staining simply caused by years of storage only (it was never 'pre-folded' nor used).

This example just shows some minimal staining and/or one tiny tear in the background simply caused by years of storage only (it was never 'pre-folded' nor used). This is the neat 'variant-pattern', showing a 'single-row of teeth' (see pictures). Simply a very attractive Waffen-SS-related and/or trapezoid-shaped cap-badge that can easily be used to restore any field-grey-coloured 'Einheitsmütze' or ideally fitted to be stored in any Waffen-SS cloth-insignia collection: I deem that I have priced this attractive specimen accordingly!
Attractive - and scarcely encountered! - Waffen-SS, so-called: 'M43-pattern'-cap-trapezoid, as executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern on a field-grey-coloured background that comes in a carefully cap-removed condition The neat and not that often seen insignia-piece - which was intended for usage on the various field-grey-coloured, so-called: 'M43-pattern' (Waffen-SS-) caps - comes in a very nice (ie. minimally used and/or: carefully confectioned- and/or cap-removed-), condition (see pictures). This example just shows some minimal staining simply caused by moderate age and/or wear. This is the neat 'variant-pattern', showing a 'double-row of teeth' (see pictures). Simply a very attractive Waffen-SS-related and/or trapezoid-shaped cap-badge that can easily be used to restore any field-grey-coloured 'Einheitsmütze' or ideally fitted to be stored in any Waffen-SS cloth-insignia collection: I deem that I have priced this attractive specimen accordingly!
Attractive - and scarcely encountered! - WH 'Kriegsmarine' golden-toned (ie. 'Feuervergoldeter'), aluminium-based breast-eagle, as was specifically intended for usage on the white-coloured, summer tunics This a truly attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH 'Kriegsmarine'-related-, golden-toned (ie. 'Feuervergoldeter'), aluminium-based breast-eagle, as was specifically intended for usage on the white-coloured, summer tunics, in overall very nice (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-) condition. The piece - which is slighty converse-shaped - is a neatly maker- (ie. 'M'-) marked, aluminium-based example that has a very nice, 'frosty' and/or detailed appearance. The piece is IMO however clearly worn and shows some obvious wear and/or age. It shows however no damage whatsoever: most of its so-called: 'hochpolierte Kanten' (or polished sides) are still nicely preserved (see pictures). The badge just shows some minimal age ie. staining as to be expected. The piece comes mounted on its original (and naturally functional- and also aluminium-based-) pin and also retains its (often missing!) third attachment-pin (shaped like a clip - see pictures). These attractive navy-type tunic-eagles can easily be considered fairly scarce. It should be noted that this model could eventually also be used for a WH (Heeres) General Officers' summer-tunic (there was no difference between the metal breast-eagles used for these two branches). Simply a truly attractive KM-eagle: hard to find a better example for a more interesting price!
Attractive - and scarcely encountered! - WH (KM) 'Marine-Artillerie-Abzeichen', being a detailed-, neatly maker- (ie. 'F.F.L.-43'-) marked-, and/or zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based example, that comes stored in its (very rarely seen!) carton-based box This is a truly attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine) 'Marine-Artillerie-Abzeichen' (or coastal-artillery war-badge), being a detailed- and neatly maker- (ie. 'F.F.L.-43'-) marked-, multi-coloured- and/or zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink') based example as was produced by the company 'Friedrich Linden' (ie. 'F.L.L. ') as was based in the town of Lüdenscheid, that comes stored in its (very rarely seen!) carton-based 'etui' (ie. box) as issued and/or stored for decades. The award retains its typical catch (-set-up) and comes naturally mounted on its typical (IMO steel-based- and/or thin-shaped-) pin: it also has a typical (F.L.L.-type-) hinge- and/or catch in place as to be expected: these are not altered nor damaged and of course fully functional. The badge - which still has maintained great pronounced detail - has IMO never been cleaned nor polished and does show a fair bit of its period (neatly golden-toned-) finish. The badge can naturally be attributed to the company 'Friedrich Linden' as based in the town of Lüdenscheid. Of great interest is naturally the fact that this example came stored in its (rarely encountered!) carton-based 'etui' (ie. box) as issued and/or stored for decades. This etui (which is clearly used and that misses one of its sides as can be seen on the pictures) is executed in brownish-coloured carton and shows the printed text: 'Marine-Artl.(Flak) Abzeichen' on its top: it is, however, void of any makers'-designation. It should be noted that these (IMO later-war-produced) etuis are X-times rarer than the award itself, something that IMO merits my asking-price. I deem that I have priced this by the: 'Friedrich Linden'-produced- and complete naval-award accordingly!
Attractive - and scarcely encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine) ie. 'Küstenartillerie'- related, so-called: 'M43-pattern'-cap-trapezoid, as was executed in neat machine-embroidery on an unusual, greenish-/grey-coloured background The neat - and with certainty not that often-seen! - cap-eagle was intended for usage on the various field-grey-coloured-, so-called: 'M43-pattern' (WH Kriegsmarine ie. 'Küsten- artillerie'- related-) field-caps and comes in a very nice condition, overall. The piece - which comes on a very unusually seen somewhat 'glossy' background - was IMO once cap-attached and comes in a carefully cap-removed condition (as can be seen on the pictures). This example just shows some minimal staining simply caused by years of storage and minimal wear (it was as stated above IMO once attached to a cap by hand-stitching). Simply a very attractive WH (Kriegsmarine) ie. 'Küstenartillerie'-related and/or trapezoid-shaped cap-badge that can easily be used to restore any 'Einheitsmütze' or that is ideally fitted to be stored in an advanced insignia-collection: I deem that I have priced this attractive specimen accordingly!
Attractive - and scarcely encountered! - WH-related lapel-pin, as intended for a: ‘Wehrmachtsgefolge’, neatly maker-marked on the back: ‘O.Placzeck - Berlin’ (smaller version) - nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition! This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH-related lapel-pin, as intended for a: ‘Wehrmachtsgefolge’, being a smaller-sized example that is neatly maker-marked on the back with the makers-signifcation: ‘O.Placzeck - Berlin’, in overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition. The badge is made-out-of bronze-toned metal and shows no real damage whatsoever: it is just a tiny bit dirty caused by regular wear ie. fair usage. These ‘Wehrmachtsgefolge’ (or 'WG’) were by very nature not regular armed forces but auxiliaries to them. In fact, the only true auxiliary forces were the ‘Wehrmachtsgefolge’ (or armed forces auxiliaries) which were those formations or organizations that were not a part of the armed forces, but which served such an important support role that they were given protection under the Geneva Convention. The piece is neatly maker-marked: ‘O.Placzeck - Berlin’ on the back and comes on its functional (fairly long-sized-) pin. It is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken'-lapel-pin catalogue, wherein it is given the nr. 9502C and an estimated value of 75 Eu. The badge was never cleaned and has a nice and fairly darkened age-patina. As stated is this the smaller-sized version (having a approx. diameter of 2,5 cms.). Simply a nice and honest example which is not that often offered for sale!
Attractive - and scarcely seen! - example of a period, picture-postcard originating from the 'Reichsjugendführung'-series, depicting a Motor-HJ-member on a motor-cycle and bearing the text: 'Motor-Hitlerjugend - Motor-Hitlerjunge auf Geländfahrt' This is an attractive example of a black- and white-, period picture-postcard originating from the 'Reichsjugendführung'-series, depicting a Motor-HJ-member on a motor-cycle and bearing the text: 'Motor-Hitlerjugend - Motor-Hitlerjunge auf Geländfahrt', that comes in an overall very nice (ie. mint-/unissued-), condition. The decorative card - which shows the number '376' and which is sized 14 x 9,5 cms. as usual - comes in a mint, unissued condition but originates from an old collection as was period-compiled by a youngster: it is void of any writing nor text and does show some minimal wear and/or age. Simply a very nice period 'Reichsjugendführung'-series photo-postcard that is almost impossible to upgrade!
Attractive - and scarcely seen! - example of a period, picture-postcard originating from the 'Verlag A. Daehler' Knights'-cross bearers- (ie. 'Ritterkreuzträger'-) series, depicting the WH (Luftwaffe) 'Major' Baumbach This is an attractive - and actually scarcely seen! - example of a black- and white-, period picture-postcard originating from the 'Verlag A. Daehler - Berlin' so-called: Knights'-cross bearers- (ie. 'Ritterkreuzträger'-) series, depicting the WH (Luftwaffe) (then-) 'Hauptmann' Hans-Joachim Marseille, that comes in an overall very nice (ie. mint-/unissued-), condition. The decorative card - which shows the number '3647' on its back and which is sized 14 x 9,5 cms. as usual - comes in a mint, unissued condition but originates from an old collection as was period-compiled by a youngster: it is void of any writing and does show some minimal wear and/or age. It should be noted that this is one of the more scarcely seen 'Verlag A. Daehler - Berlin' ie. VDA-related -cards. Simply a very nice period 'Ritterkreuzträger' photo-postcard that is almost impossible to upgrade!
Attractive - and scarcely seen! - example of a period, picture-postcard originating from the 'Verlag Röhr' Knights'-cross bearers- (ie. 'Ritterkreuzträger'-) series, depicting the WH (Luftwaffe) 'Hauptmann' Marseille This is an attractive - and actually scarcely seen! - example of a black- and white-, period picture-postcard originating from the 'Verlag Röhr - Magdeburg' so-called: Knights'-cross bearers- (ie. 'Ritterkreuzträger'-) series, depicting the WH (Luftwaffe) (then-) 'Hauptmann' Hans-Joachim Marseille, that comes in an overall very nice (ie. mint-/unissued-), condition. The decorative card - which shows the number '3647' on its back and which is sized 14 x 9,5 cms. as usual - comes in a mint, unissued condition but originates from an old collection as was period-compiled by a youngster: it is void of any writing and does show some minimal wear and/or age. It should be noted that this is one of the more scarcely seen 'Verlag Röhr'-cards. Simply a very nice period 'Ritterkreuzträger' photo-postcard that is almost impossible to upgrade!
Attractive - and scarcely seen! - example of a period, picture-postcard originating from the famous 'Hoffmann' Knights'-cross bearers- (ie. 'Ritterkreuzträger'-) series, depicting the WH (Luftwaffe) 'Oberleutnant' Marseille This is an attractive - and actually scarcely seen! - example of a black- and white-, period picture-postcard originating from the famous 'Hoffmann' Knights'-cross bearers- (ie. 'Ritterkreuzträger'- ie. VDA-) series, depicting the WH (Luftwaffe) 'Oberleutnant' Hans-Joachim Marseille, that comes in an overall very nice (ie. mint-/unissued-), condition. The decorative card - which shows the number '1578' on its back and which is sized 14 x 9,5 cms. as usual - comes in a mint, unissued condition but originates from an old collection as was period-compiled by a youngster: it is void of any writing and does show some minimal wear and/or age. It should be noted that this is one of the more scarcely seen Hoffmann-cards. Simply a very nice period 'Ritterkreuzträger' photo-postcard that is almost impossible to upgrade!
Attractive - and scarcely seen! - WH (Kriegsmarine), 'Feinzink'-based, so-called: 'U-Bootkriegsabzeichen' (or: U-boat war-badge), being a neatly marker (ie. 'F.O. '-) marked example as was produced by the: 'Friedrich Orth' company The typical zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based badge is as stated a neatly-maker-marked and/or fairly detailed, later-war period example showing the typical 'F.O.'-makers'-logo on the back (see pictures). It is as such a typical example that was produced by the Austrian company: 'Friedrich Orth' based in the town of Wien (ie. Vienna). The piece has a nice age-patina but has regrettably lost most (ie. all) of its period-applied golden-toned finish (something that is more often the case with these later-war produced pieces). The piece however still shows extraordinary detail and comes naturally mounted on its functional pin- and/or catch(-set-up) which are both fully unaltered and of course fully functional. The badge has IMO never been cleaned nor polished and is still a bit dirty ie. stained. Simply a nice 'U-Bootkriegsabzeichen' that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and truly detailed! - example of an: 'Ehrenzeichen für 25 Jahre Treue Dienste im Preußischer Landesfeuerwehr-Verband', that is executed in black-enamelled metal, having silver-coloured 'inlays' This is an attractive - and/or truly very detailed! - (and IMO 'high-quality'-produced-) example of a so-called: 'Ehrenzeichen für 25 Jahre Treue Dienste im Preußischer Landesfeuerwehr-Verband' (or: loyal-service award for 25 years of loyal-service within the Prussian-based fire-brigade) being an example that is executed in black-enamelled metal, having silver-coloured 'inlays'. The piece - which is mounted as a single-pieced medal-bar (ie. 'Einzelspange') on its period ribbon - originates IMO from the early thirties and is more often encountered in German award-groups and was also worn during the WWII-period. This is a very detailed - and IMO expensively produced! - version that is executed in neatly enamelled- and/or silvered metal (ie. 'Buntmetall'). The unmarked piece is IMO never cleaned nor polished and shows normal wear and/or moderate age: it is somewhat tarnished and/or dirty. The piece has a fully preserved and undamaged enamelled surface and comes of course on its functional pin-/catch set-up. The overall detail on the inlays is very nice and/or pronounced: the silver-finish shows some wear and/or age: simply caused by wear and/or moderate usage. Simply a very nice and not that often encountered 'Preußischer Landesfeuerwehr-Verband'-related award ie. 'Einzelspange' that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and truly rarely encountered! - 'standard-issued'-, WH smooth-woolen- (ie. 'Airtex'-) based 'under-the-tunic'-shirt (ie. 'Diensthemd'), being an example that was (IMO) only minimally worn- ie. used This is a very attractive - and truly rarely encountered! - 'standard-issued', WH (Heeres, Luftwaffe, Waffen-SS etc.) item: a smooth-woolen- (ie. so-called: 'Airtex'-) based 'under-the-tunic'-shirt (ie. 'Diensthemd') that was worn by the various troops throughout the war, that comes in an overall very nice (IMO issued- albeit hardly worn- ie. minimally used-) condition. This example is greyish-green- (ie. 'melliert') coloured and has the typical long-sized length and fairly large-sized- (and truly 'pointed'-) collar-points but is void of 'front-pockets' (as is more commonly encountered). These neat shirts can easily be considered rare, simply due to the fact that most of them were 'worn-out' after the war. This example is totally void of any makers'-designation nor ink-stamp (I deem that it never had such a stamp). The shirt naturally retains all its originally attached (metal-based) buttons (as can be seen on the pictures). The shirt has a few minor (ie. very tiny) repaired holes simply caused by wear and/or regular aging (really nothing that shocking). Note: it should be noted that this is NOT a modern copy or even 'Bunderwehr'-shirt but a genuine, German WWII-item that would certainly show nice if used for a mannequin set-up. Simply a nice opportunity to acquite a rare and desirable uniform-item!
Attractive - and truly rarely encountered! - Dutch, WH (Kriegsmarine) volunteer-related- and nicely illustrated recruiting-brochure ie. booklet, entitled: 'Naar Zee! - Varen is mijn leven! Varen is mijn lust' This is an attractive - and actually truly rarely encountered! - Dutch, WH (Kriegsmarine) volunteer-related- and/or: nicely illustrated recruiting-brochure ie. booklet, entitled: 'Naar Zee! - Varen is mijn leven! Varen is mijn lust', that comes in an overall very nice (albeit used but fully complete-) condition. The very decorative (and/or: 8-paged) 'soft-covered' brochure comes in a very nice - and as stated above - fully complete condtion and shows no damage whatsoever. The booklet is sized: 21,5 x 15 cms. and is just somewhat yellowed caused by normal age and/or minimal usage. The text is (of course) in Dutch language and provides the reader with all sorts of interesting information (and/or: unusually seen pictures!) on the subject matter and provides the various training- and career-possibilities, salaries, information on 'how to become an officer', awards and decorations, uniforms and other more 'general' information. This publication was with certainty published in occupied Holland something that can also be corroborated by the presence of a so-called: 'K'-numeral on the back (which reads: 'K2347' as can be seen on the pictures). I know by experience - I collect these volunteer-related brochures myself - that examples of this very rarely seen brochure (which was IMO issued somewhat later in the war) are very hard to come by and only a handfull of these are known to exist. It might also be known that only a number of about 300 Dutch volunteers served within the various branches of the 'Kriegsmarine' during WWII. Simply a very nice Dutch volunteer ie. 'Kriegsmarine'-related item: only the first - and most likely only! - such rarely seen Dutch-related 'Kriegsmarine'-publication I ever had on offer!
Attractive - and truly very detailed! - example of a 'Freikorps'-related award, being a neatly enamelled so-called: 'Deutsches Feldehrenzeichen', which is nicely engraved on its back This is a very attractive - and truly detailed! - example of a 'Freikorps'-related award, being a neatly enamelled so-called: 'Deutsches Feldehrenzeichen', which is nicely engraved on its back with the text: 'Deutsches Feldehrenzeichen - Hamburg 11' and that is bearing a: 'Ges.Gesch. '-patent-pending marking, in overall very nice (albeit moderately used- and/or most certainly worn-) condition. This award is sometimes found amongst German WWI award-groups but was IMO never worn during the WWII-period. This is a very detailed - and IMO fairly expensively produced - metal-based- and/or neatly enameled pin-back version that is executed in neat, silvered metal (I deem silvered 'Buntmetall'): moreover, does it show a white-enamelled surface (that is totally void of any enamel-damage!) and golden-toned swords. The badge which is neatly engraved as stated above also bears a: 'Ges.Gesch.'-patent-pending mark as to be expected - see pictures. The piece is IMO never cleaned and shows normal wear and/or age: it is somewhat tarnished and dirty (and was IMO never cleaned nor polished). The piece comes of course mounted on its functional and/or non-altered pin-/catch set-up. The overall detail on this 'Freikorps'-related badge is very nice and pronounced: the silver-finish shows some wear and/or age as stated above: simply caused by normal usage. Simply a very nice - and actually not that often encountered! - 'Freikorps'-related badge which is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and truly very detailed! - example of a 'Freikorps'-related award, being an: 'Ehrenzeichen des Schlageter-Gedächtnis Bund e.V.', showing the 'Spangen': 'Spartakus' and/or '1919/23' This is a truly very attractive - and truly detailed! - example of a so-called: 'Ehrenzeichen des Schlageter-Gedächtnis Bund e.V.', showing the attached 'Spangen' (ie. bars) respectively entitled: 'Spartakus' and/or '1919/23' and being an example which is neatly maker-marked on the back by the maker: 'Paul Küst - Abzeichen u. Ordenfabrik - Berlin SW 19', in overall very nice (albeit moderately used- and/or most certainly worn-) condition. This award - which is of the second form ie. pattern (ie. 'Hochoval'-formed) - is sometimes found amongst German award-groups and was also occasionally worn during the WWII-period (although this was strictly forbidden!). This is a very detailed - and IMO fairly expensively produced - metal pin-back-version that is executed in neat, silvered metal (I deem silvered 'Buntmetall'). The badge which is neatly maker-marked as stated above also bears a 'Ges.Gesch.' patent-pending mark - see pictures. The piece - which is of the type having attached swords - is IMO never cleaned and shows some normal wear and/or age: it is somewhat tarnished and dirty. These awards could accomodate various tiny 'bars' (or 'Spangen') and this example shows two of those period attached (ie. 'Spartakus' and/or '1919/23'). The piece comes of course mounted on its functional- (and/or non-altered!) pin-/catch set-up. The overall detail on this 'Freikorps'-related badge is very nice and pronounced: the silver-finish shows some wear and/or age as stated above: simply caused by normal usage. Simply a very nice - and actually not that often encountered! - 'Freikorps'-related badge which is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and truly very rarely encountered! - so-called: 'Hilfsgemeinschaft für Mutter und Kind'-honorary-badge (ie. 'Brosche') entitled: 'Haus für soziale Hilfe - Altdorf ' and bearing a unique (low!) serial-number that reads: '356' This is an attractive - and with certainty very rarely encountered! - so-called: 'Hilfs- gemeinschaft für Mutter und Kind'-honorary-badge (ie. 'Brosche') entitled: 'Haus für soziale Hilfe - Altdorf ' and bearing a unique (low!) serial-number that reads: '356' and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit issued- and/or clearly worn-), condition. The fairly large-sized- and oval-shaped badge (ie. 'Brosche') was worn in the front of the neck and measures approximately: 4 x 3,7 cms. I deem that this badge is executed in genuine silver (but it is void of an '800'-marking - as can be seen on the pictures). The badge comes naturally mounted on its functional (and/or unaltered-) pin- ie. pin-catch set-up. The piece is void of any makers'-designation but shows - as stated above - a neatly engraved serial-number that reads: '356' (see pictures). Regrettably is there is not much known about the TR-social-welfare organisation called the: 'Hilfsgemeinschaft für Mutter und Kind' but a similar badge is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken' lapel-pin-catalogue, were it is given a unique reference-number (5619J) and given an estimated value of 280 Eu. The badge was IMO never cleaned nor polished and retains a nice and very detailed appearance (as can be seen on the pictures). Only the first (and possibly only!) 'HMK-Brochse' I ever had of offer!
Attractive - and unsually encountered! - N.S.D.A.P.-related year-book (ie. annual diary) entitled: 'Nationalsozialistisches Jahrbuch 1943', in overall very nice and/or fully complete condition This is an attractive - and actually unsually encountered! - so-called: N.S.D.A.P.-related year-book (ie. annual diary) entitled: 'Nationalsozialistisches Jahrbuch 1943', in overall very nice and/or fully complete (ie. IMO almost mint- ie. hardly used!) condition. The medium-sized and/or: reddish-pink-coloured- and/or: linnen-bound (ie. 'hard-covered') book - ie. sized: 16,5 x 10,5 cms. - contains 398 (!!!) pages loaded with (very interesting!) information on: 'what the German citizen should know about the N.S.D.A.P. in all facets' and also contains a full diary (not filled-in) of the year 1943. It also contains various, very detailed illustrations and/or pictures ie. uniform- and/or insignia tables (see pictures). The booklet was surely issued but was IMO simply never used: it bears the (white-coloured and fully preserved and/or undamaged-) text and/or eagle on the front. The booklet - which is a 17th edition as issued in 1942 (1943) - can IMO easily be regarded as a neat 'pocket-version' of the desirable (and nowadays expensive!) 'N.S.D.A.P. Organisations- bücher'. Simply a very attractive - and in this wonderfull condition - surely unusual and equally desirable item: only the second such neat item from this particalur year I ever had on offer!
Attractive - and unusually encountered! - WH (Luftwaffe) aluminium-based breast-eagle, as was intended for usage on the white summer-tunics, being a neatly maker- (ie. 'A'-) marked and/or very detailed specimen This is a truly attractive - and in this aluminium-based version actually not that often encountered - item: a WH (Luftwaffe) aluminium-based breast-eagle (ie. 'Brustadler für Sommerrock'), as was intended for usage on the white-coloured summer-tunics, being a neatly maker- (ie. 'A'- or: 'Assmann u. Söhne'-) marked and/or very detailed specimen, that comes in an overall very nice (and IMO only minimally used ie. worn-), condition. The eagle is - as stated - a very detailed example (of the second pattern) that is constructed of fairly shiny (ie. off-factory polished-) aluminium-based metal. The eagle - which has naturally a functional and non-altered pin- and catch(set-up) - has - as stated - great pronounced detail and was IMO never cleaned nor polished (as can be seen on the pictures). As possibly known are also these breast-eagles regrettably copied (most times being the aluminium ones which are clearly stamped 'A' in the centre on the back): this one is as stated above of course a 100% garuanteed original example that originates from a private household and that was never before in any collection. The makers'-mark (comprising of the 'A'-logo and/or: 'D.R.G.M.'-patent-pending marking-) is clearly present on the upper right corner (visible on the back - see pictures). Simply a very decorative - and not that commonly observed - summer-type, LW breast-eagle as was produced by the desirable 'Assmann u. Söhne'-company!

'Brustadler für Sommerrock'), as was intended for usage on the white-coloured summer-tunics, being a very detailed specimen that bears a: 'D.R.G.M.'-marking on its back and that comes in an overall very nice (and IMO only minimally used ie. worn-), condition. The eagle is - as stated - a very detailed example (of the second pattern) that is constructed of fairly shiny (ie. 'off-factory'-polished-) aluminium-based metal.

Attractive - and very detailed! - 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Bronze' (or bronze infantry assault badge ie. IAB), being an unmarked example as was executed in golden-bronze-coloured-, zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink') This is a truly very attractive - and actually very detailed! - example of a minimally used- ie. worn: 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Bronze' (or bronze infantry assault badge ie. IAB), being an unmarked- and/or 'semi-hollow-back'-example that is executed in bronze-coloured zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink'), that comes in an overall very nice (and IMO only minimally used ie. worn-) condition. This example is a non-maker-marked award: it has a 'typical' catch and/or hinge set-up (which are both not altered nor damaged and are both fully functional). I deem that this example can be attributed to the maker: 'Rudolf Karneth u. Söhne' based in the town of Gablonz. The badge seems IMO to be totally uncleaned and has a still a very nice, somewhat glossy and/or truly golden-bronze coloured age-patina: truly most (ie. all!) of its original bronze-finish is present. The (copper-based-) pin and/or catch (ie. set-up-) are as stated above of course fully functional and present. The piece - which originates from a private household in Germany - shows some minimal wear and/or staining and was IMO never cleaned. Simply a nice and neatly bronze-toned- and/or 'Feinzink'-based example that is IMO priced according to its nicely preserved condition!
Attractive - and very rarely encountered! - 3-pieced insignia-set, comprising of a ('BeVo'-woven) armband and embroidered cap- ie. arm-badge, all three pieces as intended for an official that was employed by the: 'Deutsche Post Osten'-organisation This is an attractive - and with certainty very rarely encountered! - 3-pieced insignia-set, comprising of a (neatly 'BeVo'-woven-) armband and embroidered cap- ie. arm-badge, all three pieces as intended for an official that was employed by the: 'Deutsche Post Osten'-organisation, all three pieces in overall very nice, condition. The set comprises of a bright-blue-coloured- and/or linnen-based armband (sized: 38 x 10 cms. in folded condition) that shows the black-coloured text: 'Deutsche Post Osten' (as executed in neat 'BeVo'-weave-pattern). I could not find any reference for this neat piece: it might be a one of a kind item! Next to this, the set holds an armbadge (which is neatly machine-embroidered in greyish-silver-coloured linnen on a darker-blue background and which also shows the text: 'Deutsche Post Osten'). This example was IMO worn and/or once tunic-attached and does show some minimal fraying (nothing shocking though). The last item in the set concerns a equally executed cap-badge (which comes in a virtually mint- ie. unissued and/or never cap-attached condition. The asking-price is naturally intended for the grouping of all three insignia. There is little to nothing known about this 'Deutsche Post Osten'-organisation that operated the overall postal-services within occupied- (and/or German controlled!) Poland (ie. in the so-called: 'General Gouvernement'). In any case is this a superb opportunity to acquire an extremely rarely seen 3-pieced insignia-set that belonged to an official that served within the little known 'Deutsche Post Osten'-organisation: I deem that this grouping merits further investigative work!
Attractive - and with certainty not often encountered! - golden-bronze-toned-, so-called: commemorative-plaque (ie. 'Erinnerungs- o. nichttragbare Medaille') showing the DRL-logo and bearing the text: 'Reichsoffene Wettkämpfe - TBD Tailfingen - 11.6.39' This is an attractive - and with certainty not that often encountered! - so-called: commemorative plaque (ie. 'Erinnerungs- o. nichttragbare Medaille') being a golden-bronze-toned- and/or: zinc- (ie. Feinzink-) based example showing on its front the DRL- (ie. 'Deutschen Reichsbund für Leibesübungen'-) eagle-device and bearing on its back the text: 'Reichsoffene Wettkämpfe - TBD Tailfingen - 11.6.39', that comes in an overall nice (and IMO most certainly issued- ie. awarded-), condition. The neat - smaller-sized piece having an approximate diameter of approximately 3,5 cms. - has pronounced detail and was IMO never cleaned nor polished: it has maintained a golden-bronze-toned age-patina (but also shows some regular tarnish - see pictures). These neat - IMO semi-official - presentation-pieces were IMO used as some sort of sports-event-awards. The piece originates from a private household in Germany where it was recently uncovered as issued and stored for decades (see pictures). Simply a very attractive and with certainty unusually encountered so-called: 'Deutschen Reichsbund für Leibesübungen'-related table-medal ie. 'Erinnerungs- o. nichttragbare Medaille'!
Attractive - and with certainty not that easily encountered! - TR-era- (ie. 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'-) related harmonica entitled: 'Frisch auf Kameraden' that comes stored in its original-, multi-coloured- and/or carton-based box ie. etui This is a neat personal TR-era-equipment-item: a period - and with certainty not that easily encountered! - TR-era- (ie. 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'-) related harmonica entitled: 'Frisch auf Kameraden' that comes stored in its original-, multi-coloured- and/or carton-based box ie. etui as issued ie. used, in overall nice, albeit moderately used-, condition. These harmonicas were the favoured instruments for the various soldiers. This example - which is larger-sized- and measures 15,5 x 3 x 2,5 cms. - comes stored in its original carton-based box, depicting a colourful illustration of soldier at the front and showing the text: 'Frisch auf Kameraden' (see pictures). The box comes in a moderately used albeit fully undamaged condition: it shows some minimal wear ie. usage and also shows a small label (mentioning the character: 'G'-) on its back). The instrument itself bears the engraved inscription: 'Frisch auf Kameraden' on its top and back (see pictures). The instrument is in an overall very nice and of course fully functional condition: the chromed-plates show hardly any age nor staining (they are nicely preserved as can be seen on the pictures). This attractive piece originates from a smaller harmonica-collection I recently aquired. Simply a very attractive- and/or period piece of personal equipment that is IMO priced according to its scarcity and/or desirability!
Attractive - and with certainty not that easily encountered! - TR-era- (ie. 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'-) related harmonica entitled: 'Militär Musik' that comes stored in its original-, brownish-coloured and/or carton-based box ie. etui This is a neat personal TR-era-equipment-item: a period - and with certainty not that easily encountered! - TR-era- (ie. 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'-) related harmonica entitled: 'Militär Musik' (and sub-titled: 'Klangvoll und Rein') that comes stored in its original-, brownish-coloured and/or carton-based box ie. etui as issued ie. used, in overall nice, albeit moderately used, condition. These harmonicas (as were produced by the: 'Stabila Schlott’-company) were the favoured instruments for the various soldiers. This example - which is smaller-sized and measures 10,5 x 2,7 x 2 cms. - comes stored in its original carton-based box, depicting the text: 'Militär Musik' (see pictures). The box comes in a moderately used albeit undamaged condition: it shows some regular wear ie. usage and also shows a small label (mentioning the text: 'Echte Messingplatten'-) on its back. The instrument itself bears the engraved inscription: 'Militär Musik' on its top (see pictures). The instrument is in an overall very nice and of course fully functional condition: the chromed-plates show some truly minimal age ie. staining (simply caused by moderate usage and/or decades of storage). Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that this example came with it original cleaning-cloth (which is firmly stored in the box as can be seen on the pictures). This attractive piece originates from a smaller harmonica-collection I recently aquired. Simply a very attractive- and/or period piece of personal equipment that is IMO priced according to its scarcity and/or desirability!

These harmonicas (as produced by the famous 'Hohner'-company) were the favoured instruments for the various soldiers. This example - which is medium-sized and measures 14 x 3 x 3,5 cms. - comes stored in its original carton-based box, depicting the text: 'Militär-Musik - Runder Voller Ton' and is showing a group of marching soldiers on a glued-in label as visible in the lid (see pictures). The box comes in a minimally used albeit fully undamaged condition: it shows some regular wear ie. usage and also shows a small label (mentioning the text: 'Echte Messingplatten'-) on its back.

This example - which is truly large-sized and measures 15,5 x 5,5 x 3 cms. - comes stored in its original carton-based box, depicting the text: 'Wenn wir marschieren' and showing a group of marching soldiers (see pictures). The box comes in a minimally used albeit fully undamaged condition: it shows some regular wear ie. usage and also shows a small inventory-label (mentioning the original price of: '4 RM.'-) on its back. The instrument itself bears the engraved inscription: 'Wenn wir marschieren - M. Hohner' on its top.

Attractive - and with certainty not that often encountered! - aluminium-based-, 'Sicherheits- u. Hilfsdienst'- (ie. SHD-) related- ID-disc, bearing the stamped unit-designation: 'VI 8 526 SHD', in overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition This is an attractive example of an aluminium-based, 'Sicherheits- u. Hilfsdienst'- (ie. SHD-) related- ID-disc, bearing the stamped unit-designation: 'VI 8 526 SHD' (and as such being a disc that was IMO intended for an employee that served within this lesser known TR-organisation), in overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition. The disc is in overall nice condition and shows the clear evidence of having been used ie. worn (it shows somewhat torn-out holes - see pictures). The disc is void of a bearers'-blood-group type (something that is not that unusual). Simply a nice and honest ID-disc that originated from a 'Sicherheits- u. Hilfsdienst (SHD) Mitglied': only the second such ID-disc I ever had on offer!
Attractive - and with certainty rarely encountered! - linnen-based, so-called: 'Auszeichnung für Schiessleistungen des Deutscher Schützenverbandes Gau Westfalen' (ie. DSV), being an example as was executed in so-called: 'BeVo'-weave-pattern The truly attractive - and with certainty rarely encountered! - linnen-based, so-called: 'Auszeichnung für Schiessleistungen des Deutscher Schützenverbandes Gau Westfalen' (ie. DSV), being an example as was executed in so-called: 'BeVo'-weave-pattern, that comes in a very nice (ie. unconfectioned-), condition. The patch (which measures 6,8 x 6 cms.) was IMO once worn and/or issued (I deem that it was once even tunic-attached). It only shows some minimal aging caused by regular usage and/or wear (but it is totally undamaged). The neat piece - that shows the 'DSV'-symbol surrounded by text and showing two swastikas - is executed in silverish-white-coloured linnen on a black-coloured- (and linnen-based-) background. Regrettably, could I not find any in-deth reference-material regarding this (with certainty) rarely encountered 'DSV'-shooting-award: I deem that it is accordingly priced!
Attractive - and with certainty rarely encountered! - period portrait picture-postcard depicting a WH (Heeres) 'Feldwebel des Artillerie-Regiments 122 “Greif”, proudly wearing this tunic with (rarely seen!) “Greif”-'Traditions-Abzeichen' This is a truly very attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - period portrait picture-postcard depicting a WH (Heeres) 'Feldwebel des Artillerie-Regiments 122', part of the: 'Infanterie-Division 122' “Greif”, proudly wearing his army-tunic with (rarely seen!) “Greif”-'Traditions-Abzeichen' attached, that comes in an overall nice condition. The picture shows a young artillery-sergeant ('Feldwebel') wearing a standard-pattern-, so-called: 'M36'-pattern tunic (having all proper insignia attached) and (nicely formed!) visor-cap (ie. 'Schirmmütze'). Of specific interest is naturally the presence of the so-called: “Greif”- 'Traditions-Abzeichen' being worn (see pictures). The neat picture - sized: 14 x 9 cms. - is very sharp in execution and shows nice pronounced detail. The back of the portrait is void of any writing nor date but does show an ink-stamp of a German-based photographers'-shop. Simply a very attractive - and possibly unique! - 'Infanterie-Division 122' “Greif”-related portrait-picture!
Attractive - and with certainty rarely encountered! - so-caled:'Postschutz' arm-badge ie. arm-eagle being a piece as was executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave-pattern The attractive arm-badge - which is executed in light-grey-coloured linnen on a greyish-coloured background and which is executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave-pattern - was clearly used and/or carefully tunic-removed: the piece was neatly trimmed- and/or pre-folded and comes as carefully tunic-removed (see pictures). The piece does show some obvious age- ie. minimal staining and still shows the signs of having been once tunic-attached (see pictures). The 'Postschutz'-organisation (which can literally be translated as 'postal security-service') is one of the smaller-sized TR-era organisations that fell under the jurisdiction of the SS and about which little is known to date: its 'political'- i.e. police-related nature is also underlined by the left-facing eagle. The piece on offer here shows an interwoven bright-orange-coloured border (something that might deal with the function ie. rank of the official). I have seen these also without having this bright-orange-coloured (interwoven) border something for which I could not find any regulation. These 'Postschutz'-arm-eagles can easily be graded 'very scarce'. Simply a great occasion to acquire a rarely seen armbadge that was worn by an official who served within one of the lesser known TR-organisation!
Attractive - and with certainty rarely encountered! - two-pieced lapel-pin-grouping comprising of two colourful and neatly enamelled: 'Mitgliedsabzeichen des Bundes heimattreuer Schlesier' that came stored in their period carton-based etui as issued This is a truly attractive - and with certainty rarely encountered! - two-pieced lapel-pin-grouping comprising of two colourful and neatly enamelled: 'Mitgliedsabzeichen des Bundes heimattreuer Schlesier' (ie. membership-badges that signified membership within this TR-period organisation) and that came stored in their period carton-based etui (ie. box) as issued. The set was recently found as such at a private household in Germany and was never before part of a collection. It deals respectively with a standard-pattern so-called: 'Mitgliedsabzeichen' that comes mounted on its period-attached-, long-sized pin. This piece - which has an immaculate enamelled surface without showing any damage - is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken' lapel-pin-catalogue, wherein it is given a unique reference-number (4610A) and an estimated value of 75 Eu. Next to this piece the set holds a: 'Mitgliedsspange' that comes mounted on its period-attached-, pin-/catch set-up. This piece - which also has an immaculate enamelled surface without showing any damage - is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken' lapel-pin-catalogue, wherein it is given a unique reference-number (4610F) and an estimated value of 95 Eu. Both pieces are void of a makers'-signification but do both show a: 'Ges.Gesch.' patent-pending marking on their backs (see photos). Both neat examples came stored in their (rarely seen!) period- and/or carton-based- 2-pieced etui (ie. box) that shows an illustration of the badge on its top. The box shows some wear and/or age but it nevertheless in a wonderful condition. The asking-price is naturally intended for both lapel-pins and etui: I deem that this rarely encountered: 'Bund heimattreuer Schlesier'-grouping is accordingly priced!
Attractive - and with certainty rarely encountered! - WH (Heeres- ie. Waffen-SS) carton-based medal-pouch, marked: 'LDO' and executed in typical: 'Zellstoff'-based paper, as was intended for a: 'Panzerkampf-Abzeichen in Silber' (or silver-class PAB) This is a truly unusual and with certainty rarely encountered item: a WH (Heeres- ie. Waffen-SS) carton-based medal-pouch, marked: 'LDO' and executed in typical, beige-coloured- and/or: 'Zellstoff'-based paper, as was intended for storage of a: 'Panzerkampf-Abzeichen in Silber' (or silver-class PAB), in overall very nice (albeit IMO slightly used and/or issued-), condition. The pouch shows a red-coloured ink-stamp on its front and is additionally marked on the back with the text: 'Die Herstellung von..... etc.'. The pouch is naturally fully complete and/or still functional: it just shows some minimal staining ie. usage- ie. storage-marks. I am convinced that this 'simply' pouch is actually x-times rarer to find than the actual badge itself. Simply a very desirable piece of unmistaken rarity!
Attractive - and with certainty rarely encountered! - WH (Luftwaffe) so-called: 'pith-helmet' eagle-device, as executed in so-called: 'Buntmetall', in overall very nice (albeit clearly worn ie. helmet-removed-) condition This is a truly very attractive - and with certainly rarely encountered! - WH (Luftwaffe) so-called: 'pith-helmet' eagle-device as executed in neatly silvered, so-called: 'Buntmetall', in overall very nice (albeit clearly worn ie. helmet-removed-) condition. The very detailed and/or pronounced piece retains its original (three!) completely present - and/or also 'Buntmetall'-based and/or fragile! - pins: the piece was IMO once mounted on a pith-helmet and then carefully removed and kept as such for decades. The eagle - which is of course left-facing as to be expected - retains most of its (fairly 'frosted') silverish finish but is also a bit stained (ie. dirty): it is void of any makers'-mark (as is more often the case). It should be mentioned that these 'pith-helmet' eagles rank amongst the rarest pith-helmet-devices to encounter. Simply a nice opportunity to acquire a genuine so-called: Luftwaffe 'pith-helmet' eagle-device!

Attractive - and with certainty scarcely encountered! - golden-bronze-toned so-called: commemorative-plaque (ie. 'Erinnerungs- o. nichttragbare Medaille') showing the logo of the DJ (ie. 'Deutsche Jägerschaft') and/or: engraved date: '1935' This is a truly attractive - and with certainty this complete scarcely encountered! - so-called: commemorative-plaque (ie. 'Erinnerungs- o. nichttragbare Medaille') being a golden-bronze-toned example showing the logo of the DJ (ie. 'Deutsche Jägerschaft') and/or engraved date: '1935' and that still comes 'packed' in its period 'Zellstoff'-based pouch as issued, in overall very nice (and IMO most certainly issued-), condition. The neat - large-sized piece having an approximate diameter of 8 cms. - has truly gorgeous details and was IMO never cleaned nor polished: it has maintained a very nice- (ie. truly golden-bronze-toned-), age-patina (just some regular tarnish is present - see pictures). The back of the medal shows a 'Ges.Gesch.'-patent-pending mark as well as a period-engraved text that IMO reads: '353 Ringe' (see pictures). These neat - IMO semi-official - pieces were instituted in the mid-30-ies and were IMO used as some sort of DJ-shooting-awards. The piece originates from a private household in Germany where it was found 'packed' in its period 'Zellstoff'-based protective-pouch as issued (see pictures). The neat pouch shows a pencilled text ('bronze') and shows a makers'-designation- and/or logo (that reads: 'Otto Laue - Berlin' (see pictures). Simply a very nice and actually unusually encountered DJ (ie. 'Deutsche Jägerschaft')-related table-medal ie. 'Erinnerungs- o. nichttragbare Medaille'!
Attractive - and with certainty scarcely encountered! - golden-bronze-toned-, so-called: commemorative-plaque (ie. 'Erinnerungs- o. nichttragbare Medaille') showing a soldier wearing a steelhelmet and bearing the text: 'Dem Sieger - III. Preis' This is a truly attractive - and with certainty scarcely encountered! - so-called: commemorative-plaque (ie. 'Erinnerungs- o. nichttragbare Medaille') being a golden-bronze-toned example showing on its front a soldier wearing a steelhelmet and bearing the text: 'Dem Sieger - III. Preis' and on its back the text: 'Meisterschaften des Reichs-Heeres und der Reichs-Marine - 1922', that comes in an overall very nice (and IMO most certainly issued- ie. awarded-), condition. The neat - larger-sized piece having an approximate diameter of 5,2 cms. - has truly gorgeous details and was IMO never cleaned nor polished: it has maintained a very nice- (ie. truly golden-bronze-toned-), age-patina (just some regular tarnish is present - see pictures). These neat - IMO semi-official - pieces were instituted in the early twenties and were IMO used as some sort of sports-event-awards. The piece originates from a private household in Germany where it was recently uncovered as issued and stored for decades (see pictures). Simply a very attractive and with certainty unusually encountered so-called: 'Reichs-Heeres o. Reichsmarine-' related table-medal ie. 'Erinnerungs- o. nichttragbare Medaille'!
Attractive - and with certainty scarcely encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine) 'tropical'-issue breasteagle, as was specifically intended for naval administrative-officials, being an example as executed in so-called: 'BeVo'-weave pattern This is a truly attractive - and with certainty scarcely encountered! - example of a WH (Kriegsmarine) 'tropical'-issue breasteagle as was executed in silver-grey-coloured linnen on a tan-coloured- and also linnen-based background, as was specifically intended for naval administrative-officials (ie. 'Beambten der Kriegsmarine'), being an example as was executed in so-called: 'BeVo'-weave pattern and that comes in a very nice (ie. virtually mint- ie. unissued), condition. The breast-eagle is as stated above neatly greyish-/white-coloured and is executed on a typical tropical brownish- (ie. tan-) coloured and linnen-based background (see pictures). The piece comes - as stated above - in a very nice ie. unissued condition and simply cannot be upgraded: it came as ‘straigthly cut of the role‘. These original ‘BeVo’-woven examples are getting almost impossible to find something that merits its IMO justified asking-price. Simply an attractive and truly rarely encountered piece of 'BeVo'-type insignia: it can easily be used to restore a tunic or kept in a cloth-insignia collection as such. Simply a very nice and most certainly desirable WH (Kriegsmarine) ‘tropical’-issue breasteagle!
Attractive - and with certainty scarcely encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine) ‘tropical’-issue breasteagle, as was specifically intended for naval administrative-officials, being an example as executed in so-called: 'BeVo'-weave pattern This is a truly attractive - and with certainty scarcely encountered! - example of a WH (Kriegsmarine) ‘tropical’-issue breasteagle as executed in silver-grey-coloured linnen on a tan-coloured background, as was specifically intended for naval administrative-officials (ie. 'Beambten der Kriegsmarine'), being an example as executed in so-called: 'BeVo'-weave pattern, that comes in a very nice (ie. virtually mint- ie. unissued), condition. The breast-eagle is as stated above neatly greyish-/white-coloured and is executed on a typical tropical brownish- (ie. tan-) coloured and linnen-based background (see pictures). The piece comes - as stated above - in a very nice ie. unissued condition and simply cannot be upgraded: it came as ‘straigthly cut of the role‘. These original ‘BeVo’-woven examples are getting almost impossible to find something that merits its IMO justified asking-price. Simply an attractive and truly rarely encountered piece of 'BeVo'-type insignia: it can easily be used to restore a tunic or kept in a cloth-insignia collection as such. Simply a very nice and most certainly desirable WH (Kriegsmarine) ‘tropical’-issue breasteagle!
Attractive - and with certainty unusually encountered! - WH (Heeres, Luftwaffe- ie. KM- etc. related-), commemorative postcard entitled: 'Erinnerung an den Waffen- stillstand in Compiegne 25. Juni, 1940 um 1.25 Uhr.' The neat card - showing an artist-impression of the end of Western campaign ie. the famous armistice which was held in the French town of Compiegne - comes in an overall nice condition and is void of any text on the back: it just shows some minimal staining caused by decades of storage only. The card is sized: 15 x 10,5 cms. Simply a nice and with certainty decorative, Western Campaign-related postcard that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and with certainty unusually encountered! - WH (Luftwaffe- ie. Condor-related-), commemorative postcard entitled: 'Kriegsweihacht 1942 - Stabskompanie des IV./K.G.40' (or 4th 'Staffel' of the 'Kriegs-Geschwader 40') The neat card - showing an artist-impression of a Christmas-related scene - comes in an overall nice condition and is void of any text on the back: it just shows some minimal staining caused by decades of storage only. The card was IMO once glued into an album or scrap-book and still shows some glue- and/or carton-remains on its back (see pictures). Simply a nice and with certainty decorative, Luftwaffe-related postcard that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and/or almost matching - pair of later-war period, WH (Heeres) so-called: 'M44'-style, 'simplified'-, enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for a: 'Soldat eines (Sturm)Artillerie-Regiments' The neat straps - which are approximately 11 cms. sized in length each as more often encountered - have the 'standard-type'- and/or typical brownish-like-, field-grey coloured and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks' and show the neat bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured and/or 'silk-like'-type branchcolour ie. piping attached. The straps are constructed following the typical '1944 cloth-minimising production-manner', using different shades of wool and/or lesser quality material. The straps were clearly used and/or worn and do show some obvious wear, staining and/or age as to be expected. The pair was with certainty worn together and originated from a private house-hold in Germany: both straps are just a tiny bit mis-matched in certain details (something that is more often observed with these later-war-type shoulderstraps). It should be noted that all 'M44'-style, enlisted-mens'-type straps are actually quite hard to encounter and can easily be graded 'scarce': the ones as intended for the soldiers who served within the '(Sturm)Artillerie' even more so! Simply a superb occasion to acquire a very attractive and fully 'text-book', M44-styled, enlisted-mens'-type pair as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat eines (Sturm)Artillerie-Regiments': great to complete any late-war M43- or M44-model- (or even a so-called: 'Sturmgeschütze'-'wrap-around'-) tunic. Hard to upgrade this attractive pair!

Attractive - and/or fully complete! - period carton-based box containing a WH (Heeres) 'standard-pattern'-, officers'-dress-model, aluminium-based belt-buckle and 'brocade'-based belt and accompanying dress-aguilettes as issued and/or minimally worn This is an attractive - and/or fully complete! - bordeaux-red-coloured- and/or carton-based box containing a WH (Heeres) 'standard-pattern'-, officers'-dress-model, aluminium-based belt-buckle and 'brocade'-based belt and accompanying dress-aguilettes as issued and/or minimally worn. The - truly detailed! - buckle is void of a makers'-mark ie. stamp as is more often encountered with these dress (or : 'Ausgeh'-) pieces: it is, however, still very detailed and retains truly extraordinary detail: it is just a bit dusty and dirty caused by decades of storage but shows no damage whatsoever). The accompanying belt (or: 'brocade') is also in a very nice condition overall: the (inter-)woven embroidery is simply extraordinary. The belt - which is apparantly period-shortened by a tailor and measures approximately 95 cms. in length but can of course still be sized to fit - is 'lined' with the typical greenish-coloured and/or 'officers’-type' wool (something that could without doubt be seen as a feature of an: 'Extra Qualität' belt). The belt retains both its specific, sliding- 'lashes' and comes in a wonderfull condition overall (it is void of any corrosion or alike and was with certainty always stored in its box). The set came with a wonderfull pair of dress-aguilettes which are (IMO) hardly worn and which are fully complete (as can be seen in the pictures). Simply a very nice piece that was never before in a collection: the set was recently found at a German flea-market and was never before in collectors'-hands. In any case a great item to complete any WH officer in 'dress-/going-out' attire!
Attractive - and/or fully complete! - WH 'Kleines Feldbesteck', as was intended for a: 'Sanitäter', that comes stored in its original artificial- (ie. 'Ersatz'-) leather-based pouch, nicely maker-marked-, 'WaA'-stamped and/or dated: '1943' I recently found four identical examples of the attractive - and/or fully complete! - small-sized-, WH medical-pouch (aka: 'Kleines Feldbesteck') as was intended for usage by a: 'Sanitäter' (ie. medical orderly) and that come both stored in their original, bluish-grey-coloured- artificial- (ie. 'Ersatz'-) leather-based pouches, which are both nicely maker- (ie.: 'Bollmann - Tüttlingen'-marked, neatly: 'WaA'-stamped and/or dated: '1943'), all pieces in overall nice and/or fully complete condition. The sets came stored in their original pouches as issued (which are in overall great condition and are just somewhat dusty but fully functional and/or souple). The pouches came with their bluish- ie. green-coloured- and/or linnen-based etuis (which areused but fully functional) and that each contain 5 pieces of steel-based- and/or nicely chromed medical-gear, such as a pairs of typical scissors and various lancets and/or other instruments. All pieces are in overall nice condition (as is the linnen etui) and were IMO only minimally used. The price is naturally intended for one complete set. Simply a nice occasion to acquire an attractive little piece of mid-war-period, medical field-gear!
Attractive - and/or fully fully matching! - pair of WH (LW) officers'-type collar-patches, as executed in golden-yellow-coloured wool as was intended for a: 'Leutnant der Flieger- o. Fallschirmjäger-Truppen' This is a very attractive - and/or fully fully matching! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe) officers'-type collar-patches, as was executed in the golden-yellow-coloured- and/or 'moleskin'-type- wool, as was specifically intended for a: 'Leutnant der Flieger- o. Fallschirmjäger-Truppen' (or a pilot ie. paratroopers’ lieutnant), that comes in an overall very nice (ie. IMO slightly used ie. tunic-removed-), condition. The pair is neatly hand-embroidered and truly shows great detail and/or craftmenship (see pictures). The pieces have a 'standard-type', buckram-based backing and still show some minimal remains of having been once tunic-attached. Simply a truly very nice pair of LW officers'-type collar-tabs that IMO priced according to their very nice and/or only minimally used condition!
Attractive - and/or fully matching - pair of WH (Heeres), IMO mid-war-period-, EM-type shoulderstraps, as was specifically fabricated for the black-coloured 'Panzer wrap-around'-tunics, as was intended for a: 'Soldat eines Panzer-Regiments' This is a very attractive - and/or fully matching ie. actually rarely encountered! - pair of WH (Heeres), IMO mid-war-period-, enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps, as was piped in the desirable bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was specifically fabricated for the black-coloured 'Panzer wrap-around'-tunics, as was intended for a: 'Soldat eines Panzer-Regiments' (or simple soldier who served within the Panzer-troops), in overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition. The shoulderstraps - which are approximately 11 cms. sized in length - have the 'standard-type'- and/or black-coloured, smooth-woolen-based 'upperdecks' and have as to be expected the bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured- and/or desirable 'silk-like'-type piping attached (see pictures). The straps - which come mounted on their functional tongues - show as stated above some moderate usage and/or wear (some minor staining and/or dust is visible and/or present). It should be noted that all EM-pattern, Panzer-shoulderstraps (as were specifically intended for usage on the black-coloured 'Panzer wrap-around'-tunics) can easily be regarded 'fairly scarce'. This particular pair originated from a larger cloth- and/or shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. In any case a very attractive and/or IMO mid-war-period, 'Heeres'-Panzer related shoulderstrap-pair that was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat eines Panzer-Regiments'!
Attractive - and/or fully matching albeit somewhat damaged! - pair of WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-war-) period, 'M36'-type- (rounded-styled-) 'cyphered'-, EM-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for a: 'Soldat des Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 35' This is an attractive - and/or fully matching albeit somewhat damaged but nevertheless not that easily encountered! - pair of WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-war-) period-, 'M36'-type- (rounded-styled-) and/or neatly 'cyphered' enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps, as was piped in the neat, bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or clearly worn- ie. used by! - a: 'Soldat des Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 35' (or: soldier who served within the anti-tank- ie. tank-destroyers' unit, numbered: '35'), that come in an overall nice (albeit clearly used ie. worn- and/or minimally damaged-), condition. The shoulderstraps - which are both approximately 12,4 cms. sized in length - have the 'standard-type'- and/or darker-green-coloured-, smooth-woolen-based 'upperdecks'. The straps show the woolen-type piping (which is somewhat damaged on one of the straps) and both show the neatly machine-embroidered-, Gothic-styled 'P'-cyphers and/or: '3' ie. '5' numerals (which are executed in bright-pink-coloured- and/or woolen-based machine-stitching (ie. 'Kurbelstickerei') as to be expected (see pictures). The straps - which never had any tongues attached and that were clearly worn as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type - show as stated above moderate usage and/or moderate wear (some minor staining-, moth-damage and/or dust is visible and/or present as can be seen on the pictures). It should be noted that all 'cyphered' EM-pattern shoulderstraps can be easily regarded 'fairly scarce'. This particular pair originated from a private household and was never before part of a collection. In any case an attractive and/or early-war-period-, neatly 'cyphered'- and/or: 'Heeres-Panzerjäger'-related EM-type shoulderstrap-pair that was clearly used by a: 'Soldat des Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 35': of course, did I price this pair according to its somewhat damaged- ie. worn condition!
Attractive - and/or fully matching and actually rarely encountered! - fully matching, pair of specific WH (Heeres)-type collar-tabs, as was intended for a: 'Mitglied eines Unteroffiziersvorschule' This is a truly attractive - and/or fully matching and actually fairly rarely encountered! - fully matching, pair of specific WH (Heeres)-type-, NCO-pattern collar-tabs (ie. 'Kragenspiegel'), as was intended for - and used by! - a: 'Mitglied eines Unteroffiziers- vorschule' (or student and member within one of the junior-sergeant training-academies), that comes in an overall very nice (albeit IMO issued- and/or worn- ie. tunic-removed) condition. The neat collar-tabs - which have the darker-green-coloured- and/or smooth-woolen-based backgrounds and/or white- (ie. 'weisser-') coloured- and woolen-based branchcolour - show the (specific) bluish-grey-coloured 'Litzen' attached (these have a white- (ie. 'weisser-') coloured centre-stripe as to be expected - see pictures). I deem that this pair was only minimally worn- ie. once tunic-attached (some stitching-holes- ie. remains are still present and visible, as can be seen on the pictures). The tabs are nicely 'backed' with browish-yellow-coloured buckram-based cloth as is more often encountered (see pictures). Simply a rarely seen and attractive 'Unteroffiziersvorschule'-related collar-tab-pair that belonged to a student that was attached to one of the junior-sergeant traning-academies (ie. 'Unteroffiziersvorschulen')!
Attractive - and/or fully matching and actually scarcely encountered! - pair of WH (Heeres) 'cyphered'-, officers'-type shoulderboards, as was intended for a: 'Leutnant des Panzer-Schützen-Regiments 2' This is a truly very attractive - and/or fully matching and/or actually scarcely encountered! - pair of WH (Heeres) 'cyphered'-, officers'-type shoulderboards, as was piped in the neat bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or worn by! - a: 'Leutnant des Panzer-Schützen-Regiments 2' (or lieutnant and/or gunner within the tank-regiment ie. unit, numbered: '2'), in overall nice- (albeit clearly used-, worn- and/or: tunic-removed-) condition. The shoulderboards are 'text-book'-examples of the 'Heeres'-type-, 'Panzer'-shoulderboards and have the greyish-silver- (ie. somewhat sub-dued-) 'upperdecks'. The boards show the desirable bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured, branchcolour (and were constructed from the smooth-type wool as to be expected). The boards never had any tongues: they were intended to be worn as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type and measure approximately 11,5 cms. in length each. The pair was IMO clearly issued- and/or worn and does show moderate age, wear and/or staining as to be expected. The pair has a matching set of (neatly golden-toned-, smaller-sized- and/or identical-) Gothic-styled: 'S'-cyphers- and/or: '2'-numerals attached, denoting that the officer who wore these was a gunner ie. an officer who served within a: ' Panzer-Schützen-Regiments 2'. All four devices are just minimally stained- ie. tarnished but have preserved a fine and fairly bright and/or shiny age-patina. The pair came with a (matching) pair of silver-toned so-called: 'screw-on'-buttons (ie. 'Schraubknöpfe') attached. These 'standard'-model, 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. It should be mentioned that these neatly 'cyphered', 'Heeres'-type 'Panzer'-shoulderboards are actually very hard to come by and can easily be graded 'scarce': simply a very attractive set that belonged to a: 'Leutnant des Panzer-Schützen-Regiments 2'!
Attractive - and/or fully matching and actually scarcely encountered! - pair of WH (Heeres) 'cyphered'-, officers'-type shoulderboards, as was intended for a: 'Leutnant eines Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs-Schützen-Regiments' This is a truly very attractive - and/or fully matching and/or actually scarcely encountered! - pair of WH (Heeres) 'cyphered'-, officers'-type shoulderboards, as was piped in the neat golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or with certainty worn by! - a: 'Leutnant eines Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs-Schützen-Regiments' (or lieutnant and/or gunner within an army cavalry- ie. reconnaisance regiment ie. unit), in overall nice- (albeit clearly used-, worn- and/or: tunic-removed-) condition. The shoulderboards are 'text-book'-examples of the 'Heeres'-type-, 'Kavallerie'-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 on their functional tongues (which have been period repaired as can be seen on the pictures). The boards measure approximately 10,4 cms. in length each. The pair was IMO clearly issued- and/or worn and does show moderate age, wear and/or staining as to be expected. The pair has a matching set of (neatly golden-toned-, smaller-sized- and/or identical-) Gothic-styled: 'S'-cyphers- attached, denoting that the officer who wore these was a gunner ie. an officer who served within a: Kavallerie- o.

Aufklärungs-Schützen-Regiments' (or: lieutnant first-class and/or gunner who served within an army cavalry- ie. reconnaisance regiment ie. unit), in overall very nice, condition. The shoulderboards are 'text-book'-examples of the 'Heeres'-type-, 'Kavallerie'-shoulderboards and have the greyish-silver- (ie. somewhat sub-dued-) 'upperdecks'. The boards show the desirable golden-yellow- (ie. 'gold- gelbener'-) coloured, branchcolour (and were constructed from the smooth-type wool as to be expected). The boards come mounted on their functional (smaller-sized-) tongues attached and measure approximately 11 cms. in length each. The pair was IMO issued- but hardly worn: it shows minimal age, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The pair has a matching set of (neatly golden-toned-, smaller-sized- and/or identical-) Gothic-styled: 'S'-cyphers- and/or regular-sized pips attached, denoting that the officer who wore these was a gunner ie. an officer who served within a: 'Kavallerie- o.

Attractive - and/or fully matching and actually scarcely encountered! - pair of WH (Heeres), officers'-type shoulderboards, as was intended for a: 'Hauptmann der Reserve eines Kav.- o. Aufklärungs-Regiments' This is an attractive - and/or fully matching and/or actually scarcely encountered! - pair of WH (Heeres), officers'-type shoulderboards, as was (dual!) piped in the neat golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour and having a greyish-coloured secondary branchcolour, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - a: 'Hauptmann der Reserve eines Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs-Regiments' (or: reserve-captain who served within an army cavalry- ie. reconnaisance regiment ie. unit), that comes in an overall nice, condition. The shoulderboards - which measure 9.8 cms. in length each - are 'text-book'-examples of the 'Heeres'-type-, 'Kavallerie'-shoulderboards and have the bright-silver- (ie. somewhat shiny-) 'upperdecks'. The boards show the desirable golden-yellow- (ie. 'gold-gelbener'-) coloured, branchcolour and do also show the greyish-coloured secondary branchcolour (ie. 'Zwischenfarbe') denoting the officers' reserve-status. The boards are constructed from the smooth-type wool as to be expected and never had any tongues attached: the pair was clearly used as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type.

The pair has a matching set of (neatly golden-toned-, regular-sized- and/or identical-) pips attached, denoting that the officer who wore these was a: 'Hauptmann der Reserve eines Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs-Regiments'. All four devices are just minimally stained- ie. tarnished but have preserved a fine and fairly bright- (and/or quite shiny) age-patina. Taking into account the fact that the boards have bright-silver-coloured- (ie. somewhat shiny-) 'upperdecks' I deem that this pair was intended for usage on a dress-tunic (ie. 'Waffenrock'). These 'standard'-model, 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. It should be mentioned that these 'Heeres'-type 'Kavallerie- o.

Attractive - and/or fully matching and/or actually scarcely encountered - pair of WH (Luftwaffe) 'cyphered', officers'-type shoulderboards, as was intended for usage by a: 'Leutnant u. Mitglied einer Luftwaffe-Nachrichtenschule' This is a truly attractive - and/or fully matching and/or actually scarcely encountered - pair of WH (Luftwaffe) 'cyphered', officers'-type shoulderboards, as was piped in the neat copper-brown- (ie. 'kupferbrauner'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by a: 'Leutnant u. Mitglied einer Luftwaffe-Nachrichtenschule' (or: lieutnant and/or member within one of the LW signal-training-schools), in overall very nice- (and/or IMO never worn- ie. virtually mint-/unissued-), condition. The attractive shoulderboards - which are regular-sized and do measure approximately: 10,2 cms. in length each - are piped in the neat copper-brown- (ie. 'kupferbrauner'-) coloured branchcolour and have truly 'shiny'- and/or silver-coloured- 'upperdecks' (as to be expected). The boards show the neat bright golden-coloured-, IMO 'Buntmetall'-based- and/or Latin-styled so-called: 'NS'-'cyphers' period-attached (denoting the officers' status of: 'Leutnant u. Mitglied einer Luftwaffe-Nachrichtenschule'). The pair - which never had any tongues and that was IMO intended to be worn as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type - only shows minimal age and is a tiny bit stained ie. dirty (IMO caused by having been stored as such for decades). Simply a very attractive - and/or fully matching! - shoulderboard-pair that belonged to a: 'Leutnant u. Mitglied einer Luftwaffe-Nachrichtenschule': great to complete any 'Fliegerbluse' ie. 'Viertaschenrock' or ideal to store in any shoulderboard-collection. I deem that this attractive and/or neatly 'cyphered', 'Nachrichten'-pair is accordingly priced!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - 'cyphered' (and IMO later-war-period!) WH (Kriegsmarine) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap-pair, as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat eines Küsten-Art.-Regiments' This is a very attractive - and/or fully matching! - 'cyphered' (and/or IMO mid-/ie.later-war-period-) WH (Kriegsmarine) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap-pair (as was intended for usage on the field-grey coloured navy tunics), as was intended for a: 'Soldat eines Küsten-Artillerie-Regiments' (or soldier who served within a coastal-artillery unit), in overall very nice (albeit IMO minimally used ie. worn-), condition. The straps - which are 'text-book' in all facets and measure approximately 11,5 cms. in length each (and have a width of 5,8 cms. as usually encountered) have the field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks' and come naturally mounted on their functional tongues. The straps show the neat interwoven 'winged-shell'-cyphers (as executed in golden-yellow-coloured linnen), denoting the soldiers rank of: 'Soldat'. The straps - which originate from an old shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired - show some minimal age and/or wear (they have been moderately used and one of the 'cyphers' shows some (blood?)-staining - see pictures). It should be noted that ALL EM- ie. NCO-type 'Küstenartillerie'-insignia-pieces are hard to encounter: those 'cyphered' ones even more so, which grades them easily as 'scarce'. Simply an attractive 'cyphered' naval EM-type shoulderboard-pair as was intended for usage on the field-grey-coloured attire!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - 'cyphered' (and IMO mid-war-period-) WH (Kriegsmarine) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap-pair, as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat eines Küsten-Artillerie-Regiments' This is a truly very attractive - and/or fully matching! - neatly 'cyphered' (and/or IMO mid-/ie.later-war-period-) WH (Kriegsmarine) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap-pair (as was intended for usage on the various field-grey-coloured navy tunics), as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat eines Küsten-Artillerie-Regiments' (or soldier who served within a coastal-artillery unit), in overall very nice (albeit IMO moderately used ie. worn-), condition. The straps - which are 'text-book' in all facets and measure approximately 11,8 ms. in length each (and have a width of 5,2 cms. as usually encountered) have the field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks' and come naturally mounted on their functional (and/or regular-sized-) tongues. The straps show the neat interwoven 'winged-shell'-cyphers (as executed in golden-yellow-coloured linnen), denoting the soldiers rank of: 'Soldat'. The straps - which originate from an old shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired - show moderate age- and/or wear - see pictures. It should be noted that all EM- ie. NCO-type 'Küstenartillerie'-insignia-pieces are quite hard to encounter: those 'cyphered' ones even more so, which grades them easily as 'scarce'. Simply an attractive 'cyphered' naval, EM-type shoulderboard-pair as was intended for usage on the naval field-grey-coloured attire!

The straps - which are 'text-book' in all facets and measure approximately 10,7 cms. in length each (and have a width of 5,2 cms. as usually encountered) have the field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks' and come naturally mounted on their functional (and/or regular-sized-) tongues. The straps show the neat interwoven 'winged-shell'-cyphers (as executed in golden-yellow-coloured linnen), denoting the soldiers rank of: 'Soldat'. The straps - which originate from an old shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired - show hardly any age /or wear - see pictures. It should be noted that all EM- ie. NCO-type 'Küstenartillerie'-insignia-pieces are quite hard to encounter: those 'cyphered' ones even more so, which grades them easily as 'scarce'. Simply an attractive 'cyphered' naval, EM-type shoulderboard-pair as was intended for usage on the naval field-grey-coloured attire!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - 6-pieced insignia-grouping, comprising of two (!) pairs of WH (Heeres) officers'-type- (and/or neatly 'cyphered'-) shoulderboards and dito collar-patches, as was intended for a: 'Hautptmann des Nachschub-Abteilungs 12 The attractive and/or: 'Nachshub'- (ie. army-transport-) related- 6-pieced insignia-grouping is - as to be expected - piped in the neat light-blue- (ie. 'kornblumenblauer'-) coloured branchcolour and comes in an overall nice (albeit clearly issued and/or worn- ie. tunic-removed-) condition). The attractive shoulderboards - which are fully 'textbook' in all facets and which measure each approximately 11,2 cms. in length each - never had any tongues attached and were with certainty worn as pairs of the so-called: 'sew-in-type' (as can be seen on the pictures). All four boards have fairly dull- (ie. truly sub-dued-) silverish-grey-coloured 'upperdecks' and were IMO pairs that were worn on a regular (ie. typical 'front-used'-) tunic. The boards show the neat- (larger-sized and/or neatly bronze-golden-toned- and/or completely matching-) '1'- and/or: '2'-numerals (ie. 'cyphers') and/or two (equally larger-sized and/or bronze-golden-toned- and/or also matching-) pips attached denoting the officers'-rank of: 'Hauptmann' (or: captain). All devices ie. 'cyphers' show some tarnish but were IMO never cleaned nor polished: they show a truly uncleaned and still nicely preserved, bronze-golden-toned age-patina. The boards came with an equally nicely preserved (and also truly worn-) pair of neatly hand-embroidered, officers'-type collar-patches (ie. 'Kragenspiegel') which are also piped in the desirable light-blue- (ie. 'kornblumenblauer'-) coloured branchcolour. The silver-embroidery - which is executed on a dark-green coloured- and/or smooth woolen-based background as to be expected - shows some moderate staining ie. age (see pictures). The set is nicely 'backed' with yellow-beige-coloured 'buckram'-based cloth as is more often encountered and was with certainty once tunic-attached. This interesting insignia-grouping was as stated recently found at a private household in Germany and was never before in a collection: it belonged to a: 'Hauptmann des Nachschub-Abteilungs 12' who IMO most certainly wore this set and after that stored it as such for decades. Of course is my asking-price intended for the complete grouping comprising of all six insignia-pieces. Simply an attractive, untouched officers'-type 'Nachshub'-insignia-set in a desirable branchcolour ie. 'Waffenfarbe'!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - early-period-, pair of early-model- and neatly 'cyphered'-, 'Hitlerjugend' (HJ) 'Landjahr'-shoulderstraps, as was intended for usage by a: 'Hitlerjunge' This is an attractive - and/or fully matching! - early-period-, pair of early-model- and neatly 'cyphered'-, 'Hitlerjugend' (HJ) 'Landjahr'-shoulderstraps, as was intended for usage by a: 'Hitlerjunge', that come in an overall nice (albeit moderately used- ie. worn- and/or tunic- ie. shirt- removed-) condition. The set was IMO only moderately worn after which it was carefully shirt- ie. tunic-removed and/or stored as such for decades. The neat (and truly very early-type IMO to be dated around 1934!) shoulderstrap-pair is of the 'sew-in'-type (without having tongues) and measures approximately 11,5 cms. in length each. The set is void of an 'RzM-etiket'. Both straps - which are constructed from the typical light-brown-coloured linnen as to be expected - show the neat (larger-sized- and/or Gothic-styled-) so-called: 'L'-characters, which are beautifully chain-stitched (done in so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei') and are executed in the typical light-green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured branchcolour signifying 'Landjahr'-usage. They have the typical 'rayon-based'-type piping as to be expected. The boards never had any tongues and were (IMO) 'directly sewn on the shirt or tunic'. The purpose of the 'HJ-Landjahr', which was introduced in 1934, was to 'deepen the ties connecting the young people of urban areas with the land and peasentry'. As stated above have both boards clearly been used do both show some normal wear and/or aging. Simply an extremely rare set of youth-related 'Landjahr'-shoulderstraps: only the third such neat set I ever had on offer. I deem that I priced this great pair according to its unmistaken rarity and/or desirability!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - IMO mid-war period (ie. 'M43'-pattern-) pair of WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for an: 'Unteroffizier u. Feldwebel-Anwärter eines Infanterie-Regiments' This is a very attractive - and/or fully matching! - IMO mid-war period (ie. 'M43'-pattern-) pair of WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstraps, as was piped in the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and most certainly worn by! - an: 'Unteroffizier u. Feldwebel-Anwärter eines Infanterie-Regiments' (or: junior- sergeant and/or sergeant-candidate within an infantry regiment), in overall very nice (and IMO only moderately used nor worn-) condition. The straps - which are of the typical mid-war-period type - have the field-grey coloured 'upperdecks' and show the neat, white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured and/or 'silk-like'-type, piping attached. The tongues are naturally also present (see pictures). The straps - which measure approximately 10,8 cms. each - show only moderate age, wear and/or staining. The straps have the 'standard'-type, bluis-grey-coloured (ie. so-called: 'sub-dued'-) 'Heeres'-NCO-braid attached and do also show two dual stripes (ie. 'Laschen') of (identically coloured-) NCO-braid attached, denoting that the bearer was also a sergeant-candidate (or: 'Feldwebel-Anwärter'). Simply a very nice and/or fully 'text-book' infantry-shoulderstrap pair that belonged to an: 'Unteroffizier u. Feldwebel-Anwärter eines Infanterie-Regiments': I deem that this attractive pair is accordingly priced!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - insignia-grouping comprising of a pair of WH (Heeres) 'cyphered', officers'-type shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs, as was intended for usage by an: 'Oberleutnant eines Eisenbahnpioniere Regiments' The set was with certainty always together and was recently found as such at a private household in Germany. The neat shoulderboards - which are constructed from the neat black- (ie.: 'schwarzer'-) coloured and/or 'smooth'-type (ie. moleskin-like-) wool - are in an excellent condition overall and are truly hard to be upgraded. The set has truly greyish-coloured (ie. 'sub-dued') 'upperdecks' making this IMO a pair that was most certainly intended for usage on a regular- (ie. front-used-) tunic (and IMO not for a: 'Waffenrock' or dress-tunic). The boards are just a bit 'tarnished' simply caused by normal age and/or moderate wear. The set shows two (non-identical) pips attached, denoting the officers'-rank of: 'Oberleutnant'. Next to this, the pair has identical (and/or somewhat tarnished albeit surely once bright-golden-coloured-) smaller-sized- and/or Gothic-styled so-called: 'E'-cyphers attached, denoting the officers'-function ie. rank of: 'Oberleutnant eines Eisenbahnpioniere Regiments'. The boards never had any tongues and were with certainty worn as pair of the 'sew-in'-type: they show some normal discoloration and/or moderate wear (no damage nor mothing or alike is present). The boards came with an equally nicely preserved (and also minimally worn-) pair of neatly hand-embroidered, officers-type collar-patches (ie. 'Kragenspiegel') also piped in the desirable black- (ie.: 'schwarzer'-) coloured branchcolour. The silver-embroidery - which is executed on a dark-green coloured- and/or smooth woolen-based background as to be expected - shows some truly minimal staining ie. age (see pictures). The set is neatly 'backed' with 'buckram'-based material as is more often encountered and was IMO once tunic-attached. This interesting insignia-grouping was as stated recently found at a private household in Germany and was never before in a collection: it belonged to an: 'Oberleutnant eines Eisenbahnpioniere Regiments' who IMO most certainly shortly wore and stored this set for decades. Simply a very nice, untouched 'cyphered' officers'-type insignia-set in a very desirable branchcolour ie. 'Waffenfarbe': almost impossible to upgrade this four-pieced grouping!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - insignia-grouping comprising of a pair of WH (Heeres) 'cyphered'-, officers'-type shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs, as was intended for an: 'Oberleutnant eines Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs-Regiments' The attractive - and/or fully matching! - set was with certainty always together and was recently found as such at a private household in Germany. The neat shoulderboards - which are constructed from the golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured and/or: 'smooth-type' (ie. moleskin-like-) wool - are in an excellent condition overall and are truly hard to be upgraded. The set has truly greyish-coloured- (ie. somewhat 'sub-dued'-) 'upperdecks' making this IMO a pair that was most certainly intended for usage on a regular- (ie. front-used-) tunic (and IMO not for a: 'Waffenrock' or dress-tunic). The boards are just a bit 'tarnished' by normal age and/or moderate wear. The boards - which measure approximately 11,2 cms. in length each and show the neat, smaller-sized- and/or golden-toned (and/or completely matching-) Gothic-styled-, so-called: 'A'-cyphers and shows two (matching and/or regular-sized-) pips attached, denoting the officers-rank of: 'Oberleutnant': all four devices show some tarnish (esp. the 'A'-cyphers!) but were IMO never cleaned: they show a truly uncleaned- and/or: somewhat stained age-patina. The boards never had any tongues and were with certainty worn as pair of the 'sew-in'-type: they show some normal discoloration and/or moderate wear (no real damage is present although they show some truly minimal moth-damage on the backs - see pictures). The boards came with an equally nicely preserved (and also minimally worn-) pair of neatly hand-embroidered, officers-type collar-patches (ie. 'Kragenspiegel') also piped in the desirable golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour. The silver-embroidery - which is executed on a dark-green coloured- and/or smooth woolen-based background as to be expected - shows some truly minimal staining ie. age (see pictures). The set is neatly 'backed' with beige-coloured-, buckram-based material as is more often encountered and was IMO once tunic-attached (by hand - see pictures). This interesting insignia-grouping was as stated recently found at a private household in Germany and was never before in a collection: it belonged to an: 'Oberleutnant eines Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs-Regiments' who IMO most certainly shortly wore and stored this set for decades. Simply a very nice, untouched officers'-type insignia-set in a very desirable branchcolour ie. 'Waffenfarbe': almost impossible to upgrade this four-pieced grouping!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - neatly 'cyphered', WH (Heeres) officers'-type-, shoulderboard-pair as was intended for (and with certainty worn by!) a: 'Leutnant des Panzer-Regiments 27' This is a truly attractive - and/or fully matching! - WH (Heeres) officers'-type-, 'cyphered' shoulderboard-pair as was piped in the desirable bright-pink- (ie. rosaroter-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for (and with certainty worn by!) a: 'Leutnant des Panzer-Regiments 27' (or: lieutnant who served within the tank-regiment, numbered: '27'), in overall nice, albeit clearly used and/or clearly tunic-removed-, condition. The shoulderboards - which are piped in the neat bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour - are executed in the 'smooth-type' wool as to be expected. The boards - which are approximately 11,2 cms. sized each - have the greyish-coloured- (ie. truly sub-dued) 'upperdecks' and never had any tongues attached: they were clearly used as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type. As stated above, have the boards a set of matching-, regular-sized- and/or vaguely golden-toned- and tarnished '2'- and/or: '7'-cyphers (ie. numerals) period-attached. The cyphers still retain their original prongs in place (see pictures). The pair was clearly used and/or worn as such and does show some obvious age, wear and/or staining as to be expected. As most certainly known could these type of shoulderboards be used on the 'regular' field-grey-coloured tunics but they could also be used on the specific, black-woolen-based 'Panzer'-type 'wrap-around'-tunics. The pair was recently found at a private household and came together with another pair of similar boards that was worn by the same officer (which pair I offer under number: 39232). Simply an attractive, 'cyphered' officers'-type shoulderboard-pair that belonged to a Panzer-officer who served within the: 'Panzer-Regiment 27'!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - neatly 'cyphered', WH (Heeres) officers'-type-, shoulderboard-pair as was intended for (and with certainty worn by!) an: 'Ober- leutnant des Panzer-Regiments 27' This is a truly attractive - and/or fully matching! - WH (Heeres) officers'-type-, 'cyphered' shoulderboard-pair as was piped in the desirable bright-pink- (ie. rosaroter-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for (and with certainty worn by!) an: 'Oberleutnant des Panzer-Regiments 27' (or: lieutnant first-class who served within the tank-regiment, numbered: '27'), in overall nice, albeit clearly used and/or clearly tunic-removed-, condition. The shoulderboards - which are piped in the neat bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour - are executed in the 'smooth-type' wool as to be expected. The boards - which are approximately 11,2 cms. sized each - have the greyish-coloured- (ie. truly sub-dued) 'upperdecks' and never had any tongues attached: they were clearly used as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type. As stated above, have the boards a set of matching-, regular-sized- and/or vaguely golden-toned- and tarnished '2'- and/or: '7'-cyphers (ie. numerals) and/or pair of (golden-toned-, albeit non-matching-) pips period-attached. The cyphers still retain their original prongs in place (see pictures). The pair was clearly used and/or worn as such and does show some obvious age, wear and/or staining as to be expected. As most certainly known could these type of shoulderboards be used on the 'regular' field-grey-coloured tunics but they could also be used for usage on the specific, black-woolen-based 'Panzer'-type 'wrap-around'-tunics.

Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair (of IMO mid-war-period ie. 'M43-pattern'-) WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for - and or worn by! - a: 'Feldwebel der Infanterie-Truppen' The - IMO most certainly mid-war-period- ie. so-called: 'M43-pattern' and actually nowadays not that easily encountered! - shoulderstraps are piped in the desirable white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour and measure approximately 11,2 cms. in length, each. They show the desirable 'silk-like'-type piping and come of course mounted on their functional tongues as issued and/or worn. It should be noted that these 'simple', 'Infanterie'-related NCO-shoulderstraps - having the field-grey-coloured-, woolen-based- 'upperdecks' and/or: white-coloured- piping - are not that easily encountered and can easily be graded 'scarce'. The pair was IMO only moderately used: some evident age, wear and/or usage-marks are present and/or visible. The pair shows the silverish- (ie. somewhat yellowish-) coloured NCO-braid and/or: one (zinc-based- and/or regular-sized-) pip each attached, denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Feldwebel' (ie. sergeant). The neat pair could of course excellenty be used to complete any mid-war 'Heeres'-tunic or would be a great addition to any shoulderstrap-collection. I deem that this neat shoulderstrap-pair as was intended for usage by a: 'Feldwebel der Infanterie-Truppen' is accordingly priced!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of (IMO early- ie. mid-war-period-) WH (Heeres) so-called: 'M36'-pattern (rounded styled), NCO-type shoulderstraps as was intended for a: 'Wachtmeister u. Offiziersanwärter eines (Sturm)Artillerie-Regiments' The neat straps - which are approximately 11 cms. sized in length each as more often encountered - have the 'standard-type'- and/or typical darker-green-coloured- and/or (truly smooth-like-) woolen-based 'upperdecks' and show the neat bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured and/or woolen-type branchcolour ie. piping, attached. The straps were hardly used- nor worn and only show some minimal staining and/or age, simply caused by minimal wear and/or decades of storage (see pictures). The straps come naturally mounted on their functional tongues and have the neat 'standard'-type- and/or (bright-) silverish-grey-coloured- 'Heeres'-type- NCO-braid and/or one (aluminium-based-) pip each attached, denoting the NCOs'-rank of: 'Feldwebel o. Wachtmeister' (ie. sergeant). Moreover, does the pair show two dual-stripes (ie. 'Laschen') of (differently executed- and/or also silver-coloured- albeit differently styled-) NCO-braid period-attached, denoting that the bearer was also an officers'-candidate (or: 'Offiziers-Anwärter'). Both these 'Laschen' are firmly attached to the straps by hand - see pictures). Simply a great occasion to acquire an attractive and/or fully 'text-book', M36-styled-, NCO-type shoulderstrap-pair as was intended for usage by a: 'Wachtmeister u. Offiziersanwärter eines (Sturm)Artillerie-Regiments': great to complete any early- ie. mid-war-period M36-, M43- (or even a so-called: 'Sturmgeschütze'-'wrap-around'-) tunic: with certainty one of the best such pairs I ever had on offer!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of (IMO later-war- ie. 'M43-pattern'-) WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstraps, piped in the light-blue-coloured branchcolour, as worn by an: 'Oberfeldwebel der Nachshub-Truppen' This is a very attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of (IMO later-war ie. 'M43-pattern'-) WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstraps, as piped in the neat light-blue- (ie. 'kornblumen- blauer'-) coloured branchcolour, as issued for - and/or with certainty worn by! - an: 'Oberfeldwebel der Nachshub-Truppen' (or sergeant first-class and possibly driver who served within an army transport-unit), in overall very nice (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-) condition. The neat shoulderstraps - which are each approx. 12 cms. sized in length - are fully 'text-book' in format and/or execution and show the typical later-war type-, field-grey- (ie. earthen-green-) coloured woolen 'upperdecks'. The straps show the neat light-blue- (ie. 'kornblumenblauer'-) coloured and/or desirable 'silk-like'-type piping and have the greyish-blue-coloured (ie. 'standard-pattern'- and/or sub-dued-) NCO-braid period-attached. The pair - which comes naturally mounted on its original tongues - shows some minimal wear, age and/or staining, simply caused by moderate (ie. normal-) wear. It should be noted that the light-blue- (ie. 'kornblumenblauer'-) coloured branchcolour is not the easiest 'Waffenfarbe' to encounter. Simply an attractive, later-war-period- (ie. 'M43-pattern'-) pair that was worn by an: 'Oberfeldwebel der Nachshub-Truppen': I deem that I have priced this attractive pair accordingly!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of (IMO mid-war-period-) WH (Heeres) so-called: 'M43'-pattern, NCO-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for - and worn by! - a: 'Feldwebel eines (Sturm)Artillerie-Regiments' The neat straps - which are approximately 11,4 cms. sized in length each as more often encountered - have the 'standard-type'- and/or typical field-grey-coloured- and/or: woolen-based 'upperdecks' and show the neat bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured and/or: desirable 'silk-like'-type branchcolour ie. piping, attached. The straps were clearly used- and/or worn and do show moderate staining and/or age caused by moderate wear and/or: decades of storage (they are, however, fully void of any damage). The straps come naturally mounted on their functional tongues and have the neat 'standard'-type-, silverish-grey- coloured-, 'Heeres'-type- NCO-braid and two (identical and/or IMO aluminium-based-) pips attached, denoting the NCOs'-rank of: 'Feldwebel' (ie. sergeant). Simply a great occasion to acquire an attractive and/or fully 'text-book', M43-styled-, NCO-type shoulderstrap-pair that was intended for usage by a: 'Feldwebel eines (Sturm)Artillerie-Regiments': great to complete any later-war M43- (or even a so-called: 'Sturmgeschütze'-'wrap-around'-) tunic!

'hochroter'-) coloured and/or: desirable 'silk-like'-type branchcolour ie. piping, attached. The straps were clearly used- and/or worn and do show moderate staining and/or age caused by moderate wear and/or: decades of storage (they are, however, fully void of any damage). The straps come naturally mounted on their functional tongues and have the neat 'standard'-type-, silverish-grey- (ie. somewhat yellowish-) coloured-, 'Heeres'-type- NCO-braid attached, denoting the NCOs'-rank of: 'Unteroffizier' (ie. junior-sergeant).

The straps come naturally mounted on their functional tongues and have the neat 'standard'-type, silverish-grey- (ie. somewhat yellowish-coloured- ie. somewhat 'sub-dued'-) 'Heeres'-type- NCO-braid attached, denoting the NCOs'-rank of: 'Unteroffizier' (ie. junior-sergeant). Of interest is the fact that the NCO-braid has been attached by hand (something that might indicate that it dealt with a so-called: 'at the front promotion'). Simply a great occasion to acquire an attractive and/or fully 'text-book', M43-styled-, NCO-type shoulderstrap-pair as was intended for usage by an: 'Unteroffizier eines (Sturm)Artillerie-Regiments': great to complete any later-war M43- (or even a so-called: 'Sturmgeschütze'-'wrap-around'-) tunic!

Next to this the pair shows a set of (neatly confectioned!) so-called: 'Offiziers-Anwärter-Laschen' period-attached (which are both constructed from a field-grey-coloured 'Übershube' on which two identical stripes of NCO-braid are stitched). The set was truly always together and worn as such: something that can also be corroborated by studying the 'Offiziers-Anwärter-Laschen': they show the same NCO-braid as used on the straps (see pictures). Simply a great occasion to acquire an attractive and/or fully 'text-book', M43-styled-, NCO-type shoulderstrap-pair as was intended for usage by an: 'Unteroffizier u.

Offiziersanwärter eines (Sturm)Artillerie-Regiments' The neat straps - which are approximately 12 cms. sized in length each as more often encountered - have the 'standard-type'- and/or typical field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks' and show the neat bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured and/or woolen-type branchcolour ie. piping attached. The straps were clearly used- and/or worn and do show moderate staining and/or age caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage (see pictures). The straps come naturally mounted on their functional tongues and have the neat 'standard'-type- and/or (bright-) silverish-grey-coloured- 'Heeres'-type- NCO-braid and/or one (aluminium-based-) pip each attached, denoting the NCOs'-rank of: 'Feldwebel o. Wachtmeister' (ie. sergeant). Moreover, does the pair show two dual-stripes (ie. 'Laschen') of (identically executed- and/or also silver-coloured- albeit differently styled-) NCO-braid period-attached, denoting that the bearer was also an officers'-candidate (or: 'Offiziers-Anwärter'). These 'Laschen' are firmly attached to the straps by hand - see pictures). Simply a great occasion to acquire an attractive and/or fully 'text-book', M43-styled-, NCO-type shoulderstrap-pair as was intended for usage by a: 'Feldwebel u. Offiziersanwärter eines (Sturm)Artillerie-Regiments': great to complete any later- ie. mid-war M43- (or even a so-called: 'Sturmgeschütze'-'wrap-around'-) tunic!

'hochroter'-) coloured and/or 'silk-like'-type branchcolour ie. piping attached. The straps were clearly used- and/or worn and do show moderate staining and/or age caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage (especially the piping shows some wear - see pictures). The straps come naturally mounted on their functional tongues and have the neat 'standard'-type, silverish-grey-coloured- (ie. somewhat 'sub-dued'-) 'Heeres'-type- NCO-braid attached, denoting the NCOs'-rank of: 'Unteroffizier' (ie. junior-sergeant). Simply a great occasion to acquire an attractive and/or fully 'text-book', M43-styled-, NCO-type shoulderstrap-pair as was intended for usage by an: 'Unteroffizier eines (Sturm)Artillerie-Regiments': great to complete any later-war M43- (or even a so-called: 'Sturmgeschütze'-'wrap-around'-) tunic!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of early- (ie. pre-war-) period WH (Heeres), 'M36'-type (pointed-style-) 'cyphered'-, enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for a: 'Soldat des Infanterie-Regiments 119' This is a very attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of early- (ie. pre-war-) period WH (Heeres), 'M36'-type (pointed-/generic style-) 'cyphered'-, enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps, being of the generic-model without having any piping, as was intended for - and/or minimally worn by! - a: 'Soldat des Infanterie-Regiments 119' (or simple soldier within the infantry-regiment numbered: '119'), in overall very nice (ie. minimally worn- and/or used-) condition. The neat shoulderstraps - which measure approximately 12,3 cms. in length each - come mounted on their original tongues. The pair - which is executed in the 'smooth-type' wool - was IMO only minimally used ie. worn and comes as found and/or stored for decades: the set is a bit dirty and/or stained and shows the obvious signs of having been moderately worn (as can be seen on the pictures). The straps - which have as stated above no piping - show the neat (machine-embroidered by means of so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei') '119'-numerals (ie. 'cyphers'). These are executed in the neat white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured wool as to be expected. Simply a very attractive pair of early-war period and/or 'cyphered' shoulderstraps as was intended for a: 'Soldat des Infanterie-Regiments 119': great to complete any 'M36-model' Heeres-tunic or to be stored in any shoulderstrap-collection!

Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of early- ie. mid-war-) period-, WH (Heeres) 'M36'-type collar-patches (ie. 'Einheitskragenspiegel') as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der Gebirgsjäger- o.

Jäger-Truppen' (or army soldiers ie. NCOs who served within an army mountain-troopers-unit), all four pairs in an overall very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued- and/or never tunic-attached- ie. non-folded-), condition. The tabs were simply never worn- nor tunic-attached and came 'as straightly cut-of the role': they can easily be graded 'mint- ie. unissued' (as can be seen on the pictures). They are totally void of any damage and are just a bit wrinkled- ie. stained simply caused by decades of storage only (see pictures): they could, however, be easily folded ie. trimmed to be mounted on almost any 'Heeres'-tunic. The asking-price is naturally intended per single pair. It should be noted that these fully matching pairs of non-confectioned- and/or mint- ie. unissued 'Einheitskragenspiegel' are hard to come by and can easily be graded 'scarce': even more so when they come in the hard to encounter darker-green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured-branchcolour as was used by the 'Gebirgsjäger- o. Jäger-Truppen'!

Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of early-war period-, WH (Heeres) 'M36'-type collar-patches (ie. 'Einheitskragenspiegel') as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der Gebirgsjäger-Truppen ' This is a truly attractive - and/or fully matching and actually rarely encountered! - pair of IMO early-war period-, WH (Heeres) so-called: 'M36'-type collar-patches (ie. 'Einheits- kragenspiegel') as was piped in the desirable, darker-green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured-branchcolour, as was intended for a: 'Soldat o. Unteroffizier der Gebirgsjäger-Truppen' (or army soldier ie. NCO who served within an army mountain-troopers-unit), in overall very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued- and/or never tunic-attached), condition. The tabs are nicely 'pre-mounted' (ie. partly machine-stitched) on a dark-green-coloured- and/or 'smooth' woolen-based- background as to be expected. The set shows the neat 'buckram'-based backings as is more often encountered (see pictures). Simply a very attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - 'M36'-type collar-tab-pair that comes in a very desirable branchcolour ie. 'Waffenfarbe'!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of IMO early- (ie. pre-war-) period WH (Heeres) 'cyphered' (pointed-styled-), NCO-type (M36-pattern-) shoulderstraps, as was intended for usage by an: 'Unteroffizier des Wehrersatzdienstelle im Wehrkreises XVII' This is a truly attractive - and/or fully matching and truly rarely encountered! - pair of early- (ie. pre-war-) period- (ie. 'M36'-pattern- and/or pointed-styled-), WH (Heeres) 'cyphered', NCO-type shoulderstraps, being of the generic-model without having any piping, as was intended for - and most certainly worn by! - an: 'Unteroffizier des Wehrersatzdienstelle im Wehrkreises XVII' (or: army-NCO ie. junior-sergeant who was part of the recruitment-troops within the area of 'Wehrkreis XVII', being a larger area situated in occupied Austria and residing in both Wien and/or Linz), in overall nice, albeit issued ie. moderately worn, condition. The shoulderstraps - which do show some regular age ie. wear and/or minimal staining caused by moderate usage and/or wear - are as stated in an overall very nice, albeit moderately used and/or worn condition but are void of any damage whatsoever. The boards are executed in the darker-green coloured- (and/or: smooth- ie. moleskin- type wool) and have of course no piping (they are of the generic, pointed-model). The shoulderstraps - which come mounted on their functional tongues attached - measure approximately 11,2 cms. in length each. The straps show the neat Roman-styled- and/or: machine-embroidered (Roman-styled-) 'XVII'-numerals (as executed in bright-orange- ie. 'orangeroter'- coloured-) so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei' as to be expected, denoting the NCOs rank ie. function of: 'Unteroffizier des Wehrersatz- dienstelle im Wehrkreises XVII'. The straps show the standard-type, silverish-grey-coloured NCO-braid attached denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Unteroffizier'. I deem that I have priced this very attractive 'Unteroffizier des Wehrersatzdienstelle im Wehrkreises XVII'-shoulderstrap-pair according to its evident desirability and/or comparative rarity!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of IMO mid-war-period-, so-called: 'M43'-pattern-, WH (Heeres) EM-type shoulderstraps that comes with its attached 'Übershube'-pair, as was intended for a: 'Soldat des Infanterie-Regiments 115' The attractive - and fully 'text-book' and/or fully matching! - enlisted-mens' shoulderstrap-pair is piped in the desirable white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour and measures approximately 11 cms. in length. The straps have the desirable white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured- and/or: 'silk-like'-type piping attached (as is more often encountered with these mid-war-period shoulderstrap-pairs) and were intended for usage by a simple soldier who served within the infantry-regiment, numbered: '115' (something that can naturally easily be deducted from the attached 'Übershube'-pair). The shoulderstraps - which originate from a larger cloth- ie. shoulderstrap-collection I recenly acquired - are fully 'text-book' examples having the field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks': they are IMO only minimally used ie. worn and do show some minimal wear, age and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The straps come naturally mounted on their functional tongues and came with a (matching) pair of (field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based-) so-called: slip-ons (ie. 'Übershuben') attached bearing both the signification: '115' (as executed in equally white-coloured so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei' done in wool as can be seen on the pictures). Both the shoulderstraps and/or: 'Übershuben' are in a wonderful- and/or totally undamaged condition and will be very hard to be upgraded - see pictures. These desirable 'M43'-pattern-, army-infantry-related-, enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps as piped in the 'weisser'-coloured branchcolour can easily be graded 'fairly scarce'. Simply a very attractive pair that belonged to a: 'Soldat des Infanterie-Regiments 115'!

Artillerie-Abts. 68 The attractive - and fully 'text-book'- and/or matching! - enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps are piped in the desirable bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour and both measure approximately 11,4 cms. in length each. They have the desirable 'silk-type'-piping attached (as is more often encountered with these mid-war-period shoulderstrap-pairs) and were intended for usage by a soldier who served within the heavy artillery regiment, numbered: '680' (something that can naturally be deducted from the attached 'Übershube'-pair). The shoulderstraps - which originate from a larger cloth-collection I recenly acquired - are fully 'text-book' examples having the field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks': they are IMO only minimally used ie. worn and do show some minimal wear, age and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The pair came with a (matching) pair of (field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based-) slip-ons (ie. 'Übershuben') attached bearing both the signification: '680' (as executed in equally bright-red-coloured so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei' as can be seen on the pictures). These desirable 'M43'-pattern-, 'Artillerie'-related-, enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps as piped in the ‘hochroter'-coloured branchcolour can easily be graded 'fairly scarce'. Simply a very attractive pair that will be hard to be upgraded!

'weisser'-) coloured- and/or: 'silk-type'-piping attached (as is more often encountered with these mid-war-period shoulderstrap-pairs) and were intended for usage by an NCO who served within the infantry-related, so-called: 'Landesschützen' battalion, numbered: '446' (something that can naturally easily be deducted from the attached 'Übershube'-pair). The shoulderstraps - which originate from a larger cloth- ie. shoulderstrap-collection I recenly acquired - are fully 'text-book' examples having the field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks': they are IMO only moderately used ie. worn and do show some minimal wear, age and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The straps come naturally mounted on their functional tongues and have the neat 'standard'-type- and/or fairly shiny, silver-coloured- and/or 'standard-pattern', so-called: 'Heeres'-type NCO-braid attached, denoting the NCOs'-rank of: 'Unteroffizier'. The pair came with a (matching) pair of (field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based-) so-called: slip-ons (ie. 'Übershuben') attached bearing both the signification: 'L 446' (as executed in equally white-coloured so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei' done in wool as can be seen on the pictures). Both 'Übershuben' are in a wonderful- and/or totally undamaged condition - see pictures. These desirable 'M43'-pattern-, army-infantry-related-, NCO-type shoulderstraps as piped in the 'weisser'-coloured branch- colour can easily be graded 'fairly scarce'.

Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of IMO mid-war-period-, so-called: 'M43'-pattern-, WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstraps that comes with its attached 'Übershube'-pair, as was intended for an: 'Unteroffizier des Heeres-Nachrichten-Abteilungs 644' The attractive - and fully 'text-book' and/or fully matching! - NCO-type shoulderstrap-pair is piped in the desirable bright-yellow- (ie. 'zitronengelber'-) coloured branchcolour and measures approximately 12 cms. in length. The straps have the bright-yellow- (ie. 'zitronengelber'-) coloured- and/or: 'silk-like'-type piping attached (as is more often encountered with these mid-war-period shoulderstrap-pairs) and were intended for usage by a junior-sergeant who served within the army signals-unit, numbered: '644' (something that can naturally easily be deducted from the attached 'Übershube'-pair). The shoulderstraps - which originate from a larger cloth- ie. shoulderstrap-collection I recenly acquired - are typical 'standard-issued' examples that have the field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks'. They show the 'standard-pattern'-, silverish-coloured NCO-braid attached and were IMO only moderately used ie. worn: they do show wear, age and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The straps come naturally mounted on their functional tongues and came with a (matching) pair of (field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based-) so-called: slip-ons (ie. 'Übershuben') attached bearing both the signification: '644' (as executed in equally bright-yellow-coloured so-called: 'Kurbel- stickerei' done in wool as can be seen on the pictures).

'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour and measures approximately 11 cms. in length. The straps have the desirable white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured- and/or: woolen-type piping attached (as is more often encountered with these mid-war-period shoulderstrap-pairs) and were intended for usage by a junior-sergeant who served within the infantry-regiment, numbered: '122' (something that can naturally easily be deducted from the attached 'Übershube'-pair). The shoulderstraps - which originate from a larger cloth- ie. shoulderstrap-collection I recenly acquired - are clearly privately-purchased examples that were IMO produced by a tailor-shop or alike. The have the field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks' and show the bluish-grey-coloured (ie. sub-dued-type) NCO-braid attached: they were IMO only minimally used ie. worn and do show some minimal wear, age and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The straps come naturally mounted on their functional tongues and came with a (matching) pair of (field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based-) so-called: slip-ons (ie. 'Übershuben') attached bearing both the signification: '122' (as executed in equally white-coloured so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei' done in wool as can be seen on the pictures).

Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of neatly 'cyphered' WH (Heeres), officers'-type shoulderboards as was intended for - and/or clearly worn by! - a: 'Hauptmann des (Sturm)Artillerie-Lehr-Abteilungs 1' This is an attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of neatly 'cyphered' WH (Heeres), officers'-type shoulderboards as piped in the neat bright-red- (or: 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or clearly worn by! - a: 'Hauptmann des (Sturm)Artillerie-Lehr-Abteilungs 1' (or captain who served within a (sturm-) artillery schooling ie. training-unit, numbered '1'), that comes in an overall very nice (albeit clearly issued ie. worn- and/or clearly tunic-removed-) condition. The shoulderboards - which are fully 'textbook' in all facets and measure approximately 11 cms. in length each - come mounted on their functional, officers'-type tongues attached (as can be seen on the pictures). The boards have fairly dull (ie. 'sub-dued'-) and/or silverish-grey-coloured 'upperdecks' and were IMO a pair that was worn on a regular (ie. front-used-) tunic. The boards - which show two (identical-, IMO Buntmetall-based-, golden-bronze-coloured- and/or smaller-sized-) so-called: 'L'-cyphers- and/or: '1'-numerals attached also show four, regular-sized and/or bright-golden-toned- (albeit non- matching-) pips, denoting the officers'-rank of: 'Hauptmann des (Sturm)Artillerie-Lehr-Abteilungs 1'. All eight devices are with certainty period-attached and do show some tarnish but were IMO never cleaned nor polished: they show a truly uncleaned age-patina. The boards themselves are also a bit 'tarnished' and stained simply caused by normal age and/or decades of storage and/or fair wear. This pair was recently found at a private household in Germany and was never before in collectors'-hands. Simply a very attractive pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboards that belonged to a: 'Hauptmann des (Sturm)Artillerie-Lehr-Abteilungs 1' and that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of so-called: 'Flieger-HJ' (ie. flight 'Hitlerjugend') shoulderstraps, as was intended for usage by a: 'Hitlerjunge' who was attached to the: 'Bann 287' (Bann 287 = Offenbach) The attractive pair - which was IMO only moderately used- ie. worn - can easily be graded: 'scarce'. Both boards once had a paper-based- so-called: 'RzM'-etiket attached as to be expected: these are, however, for the most missing: just the remains are present (see pictures). The straps - which are executed in black-coloured linnen, having the bright-blue-coloured- and/or neatly machine-embroidered '287'-numerals and/or equally coloured (and rayon-based-) piping attached - never had any tongues attached and come as found and/or issued: they were with certainty once tunic-attached by means of so-called: snap-on 'push-buttons' (which are still attached to the straps - see pictures). The straps measure 11 cms. in length each as usually encountered and and can as such easily serve to complete any HJ tunic ie. 'Dienstbluse'. Both show some minimal age ie. staining, simply caused by decades of storage and/or minimal wear. It should be noted that all 'Flieger-HJ' (ie. flight 'Hitlerjugend') shoulderstrap-sets can easily be graded 'scarce'.
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres ie. Luftwaffe) officers'-type, 'cyphered' shoulderboards, as piped in the dark-blue-coloured branchcolour, as was intended for an: 'Major o. Arzt der Sanitätstruppen' (or: medical major) This is a very attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of fairly high-ranked, WH (Heeres ie. Luftwaffe) officers'-type, 'cyphered' shoulderboards, as piped in the dark-blue- (ie. blauer-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for an: 'Major o. Arzt der Sanitätstruppen' (or: medical major), in overall very nice (and IMO never tunic-attached-) condition. Both boards - which are constructed from the typical 'smooth-type' (ie. moleskin-like-) wool - are in a very nice condition overall: they were IMO never used nor tunic-attached. The boards have truly 'shiny'- and/or silverish-coloured 'upperdecks' (making the pair IMO either a Heeres 'Waffenrock' ie. dress- or standard-type Luftwaffe-pair. The boards - which measure approximately 11,5 cms. in length - each, show a golden-toned-, so-called: 'Aesculap'-cypher period-attached: both devices are in a very nice condition overall and show minimal wear (they show only minimal age ie. tarnish). The boards never had any tongues attached and were intended to be used as a pair of the 'sew-in'-pattern: they come as found ie. stored for decades. The pair was recently found at a private household and was never before in a collection. Simply a very nice - and/or fully matching! - shoulderboard-pair that was intended for an: 'Major o. Arzt der Sanitätstruppen'!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) 'Artillerie'-related regimental shoulderstrap 'slip-ons' (ie. 'Übershube') as intended for a: 'Soldat des Artillerie-Regiments 69' The - fully matching - pair is neatly 'chain-stitched' embroidered (by means of so-called: 'Kürbelstickerei') in bright-red- (ie. 'Hochroter'-) coloured wool and shows some minor (IMO) storage-age only. Simply a nice pair of 'Artillerie'-related 'Übershube' that is IMO accordingly priced: great to 'decorate' a pair of bright-red-piped 'Heeres'-shoulderstraps!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) 'Artillerie'-related regimental shoulderstrap 'slip-ons' (ie. 'Übershube') as were intended for a: 'Soldat des Schwere-Artillerie-Abteilungs 647' I recently found a small lot comprising of 5 (fully matching-) pairs of the WH (Heeres) 'Artillerie'-related so-called: regimental shoulderstrap 'slip-ons' (ie. 'Übershube') as were intended for usage by a: 'Soldat des Schwere-Artillerie-Abteilungs 647', all pairs in overall very nice (ie. mint-/unissued-) condition. The - fully matching - pairs are neatly 'chain-stitched' embroidered (by means of so-called: 'Kürbelstickerei') in bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured wool and show some minor (IMO storage-) age only. Simply a great occasion to acquire a neat 'Artillerie'-related 'Übershube'-pair for a fair price: great to 'decorate' a pair of bright-red-piped 'Heeres'-shoulderstraps!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) 'Aufklärungs-Truppen'-related-, regimental shoulderstrap-'slip-ons' (ie. 'Übershube') as were intended for a: 'Soldat des Nachschub-Abteilungs XII' The - fully matching - pair is neatly 'chain-stitched' embroidered (by means of so-called: 'Kürbelstickerei') in light-blue- (ie. 'kornblumenblauer'-) coloured wool and shows some minor (IMO) storage-age only. Simply an attractive pair of 'Nachshub-Truppen'- (ie. army-transport-) related 'Übershube' that is IMO accordingly priced: great to 'decorate' a pair of light-blue-piped 'Heeres'-shoulderstraps!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) 'cyphered', officers'-pattern shoulderboards, as was intended for a: 'Leutnant einer Veterinär-Abteilungs o. Regiments' This is a very attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) 'cyphered', officers'-pattern shoulderboards, as was intended for usage by a: 'Leutnant einer Veterinär-Abteilungs o. Regiments' (or lieutnant who served within a veterinarian unit), that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. The boards - which are approximately 11,2 cms. sized in length each as more often encountered - are piped in the neat darker-pink- ie. crimson- (or: 'karmesinroter'-) coloured and/or: 'smooth'-type wool and came without tongues: they are a pair that was intended to be worn as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type. The set never had any pips attached, denoting the officers'-rank of: 'Leutnant'. The pair has identical (and bright golden-coloured-) so-called: veterinarian- (ie. snake-type-) cyphers attached, denoting the officers-function of: 'Veterinär'. The pair has the silverish-grey-coloured- and/or fairly sub-dued 'upperdecks' making it IMO a set that was specifically intended for usage on a regular, officers-type army-tunic. The pair came with a set of (identical-, field-grey-coloured and pebbled-style-) so-called: 'screw-on'-type buttons (ie. 'Schraubknöpfe') attached. It should be noted that the darker-pink- ie. crimson- (or: 'karmesinroter'-) coloured branchcolour is one of the more difficult to encounter branchcolours of the entire: 'Deutsche Wehrmacht'. Simply a great occasion to acquire an attractive and/or desirable WH officers'-pattern shoulderboard-pair that was intended for usage by a: 'Leutnant einer Veterinär-Abteilungs o. Regiments'!

Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) hand-embroidered-, officers'-type collar-tabs, as was intended for - and clearly worn by! - an: 'Offizier der Nebel-Truppen' (ie. army smoke-troops officer) The attractive collar-tabs - which have the darker-green-coloured- and/or: 'smooth'-woolen-based background and/or: desirable purple-red- (ie. 'bordeaux'-) coloured branchcolour as to be expected - show great pronounced detail: especially the silver-greyish-coloured hand-embroidery is simply stunning and/or very pronounced (see pictures). The tabs - which were IMO used- and/or once tunic-attached (IMO done by hand - see pictures) are nicely 'backed' with yellowish-beige-coloured- and/or buckram-based material as is more often encountered (see pictures). Simply an attractive – and with certainty not that often seen! - pair of 'Nebelwerfer-Truppen'-related-, officers-pattern collar-tabs that will be hard to be upgraded!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) IMO mid-war period- (ie. 'M43'-pattern-) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for a: 'Soldat der Panzer-Grenadier-Truppen' This is a truly very attractive - and/or fully matching and actually scarcely encountered! - pair of WH (Heeres) IMO mid-war period- (ie. 'M43'-pattern-) enlisted-mens'-type- shoulderstraps as was piped in the desirable bright-green- (ie. 'wiesengrüner'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and most certainly worn by! - a: 'Soldat der Panzer-Grenadier-Truppen' (ie. simple soldier who served within a rifle-regiment), in overall very nice, albeit moderately used ie. worn-, condition. The neat shoulderboards - which are both sized 11,9 cms. in length - have the field-grey coloured and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks' and have the neat (and desirable!) bright-green- (ie. 'wiesengrüner'-) coloured- and 'silk-like'-type, piping attached. The pair comes mounted on its functional tongues and does show obvious wear, usage and/or minimal age. Of interest is also the fact that the inside of both tongues shows an inked number that reads: '25' (something that is with certainly not always the case). It should, moreover, be noted that these (IMO mid-war-type-) 'Panzer-Grenadiere'-shoulderstraps are actually much more difficult to encounter than the (more often encountered-) 'M44'-pattern straps (having the same, bright-green-coloured-) branchcolour. Simply a very attractive EM-type 'Panzergrandiere' shoulderstrap-pair that is not that easily encountered!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) neatly 'cyphered', officers'-type shoulderboards, as was intended for - and/or worn by! - a: 'Leutnant des Panzer- o. Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 2' The neat shoulderboards - which are actually quite hard to encounter and can IMO easily be graded scarce! - are constructed in the smooth-type (ie. 'moleskin'-like-) wool and are as per regulation piped in the (very!) bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour. The neat set - which has a length of approximately 10,8 cms. - never had any tongues attached and was a pair that was clearly worn ie. used as a pair of the 'sew-in-type' (see pictures). The boards have truly 'silver-greyish'-coloured- (ie. somewhat 'sub-dued'-) 'upperdecks' (something that IMO clearly identifies them as WH Heeres-type shoulder- boards). The set shows clear age ie. staining simply caused by years of storage and/or fair wear and/or usage: they are IMO most certainly worn, carefully tunic-removed and/or stored as such for decades. The boards - which originate from a private household and that where never before in a collection - show four (fully identical- and/or smaller-sized-) bright-golden-toned pips and/or '2'-numerals (period-)attached, denoting the officers'-rank- ie. function of a: 'Leutnant des Panzer- ie. Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 2'. All six devices show some minimal age and/or tarnish but have nevertheless maintained a fully preserved (bright) golden-toned finish (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very attractive - and desirable! - shoulderboard-pair that belonged to a: 'Leutnant des Panzer- o. Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 2'!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) neatly 'dual-piped'-, officers'-type-, shoulderboards as was intended for - and worn by! - an: 'Oberleutnant der Reserve eines Panzerjäger-Abteilungs' This is a truly very attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) neatly 'dual-piped'-, officers'-type-, shoulderboards having the desirable bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured (and or dove-grey-coloured-) piping (ie. underlay) as was intended for - and worn by! - an: 'Oberleutnant der Reserve eines Panzerjäger-Abteilungs' (or reserve-lieutnant first-class who served with an anti-tank- ie. tank-destroyer regiment- ie. unit), in overall nice, albeit clearly used and/or tunic-removed-, condition. The neat - and actually not that easily encountered! - shoulderboards - which are as stated dual-piped in the bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured (and/or dove-grey-coloured-) branchcolour as per regulation - are executed in the 'smooth-type' wool as to be expected. The boards - which are approximately 11 cms. sized in length each - have (fairly bright!) silver-greyish-coloured 'upperdecks' and come without tongues: they were intended for usage as a pair of the sew-in-type (and were clearly used as such). The boards have two (golden-toned- and/or IMO 'Buntmetall'-based-) pips attached, denoting that the officer who wore these was an: 'Oberleutnant der Reserve eines Panzerjäger-Abteilungs'. Both pips still retain most of their bright golden-toned finish (just some regular tarnish is present and/or noticable - see pictures). The boards were clearly used and/or worn and do show some obvious age, wear and/or staining. Simply an attractive - and with certainty not that often encountered - officers’-type shoulderboard-pair that belonged to a reserve-officer who served within a: 'Panzerjäger'-unit!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type collar-tabs, as were intended for an: 'Offizier eines Beamter a.K. des gehobenen Dienstes' This is a very attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type collar-tabs, as were intended for an: 'Offizier eines Beamter a.K. des gehobenen Dienstes', in overall very nice (albeit IMO issued- and/or worn-) condition. The collar-tabs - which have the beige-white-coloured- and/or smooth-woolen-based backgrounds and/or darker-green- (ie. 'grüner-') coloured branchcolour - show great pronounced detail: especially the bright-golden-coloured embroidery is simply stunning and/or very pronounced. I deem that this pair was only minimally worn- ie. once tunic-attached (by means of a machine, as can be seen on the pictures). The tabs are nicely 'backed' with browish-yellow-coloured buckram as more often encountered (see pictures). Simply an attractive 'Beambter'-pair that belonged to a high-ranked army-official and that is very hard to be upgraded!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulder- boards having a pair of blue-coloured-, regimental indicator-cords (ie. 'Laschen') period-attached, as was intended for - and worn by! - a: 'Leutnant der Infanterie-Truppen This is an attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulder- boards as piped in the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour, having a pair of blue-coloured-, regimental indicator-cords (ie. 'Laschen') period-attached, as was intended for - and worn by! - a: 'Leutnant der Infanterie-Truppen' (or: infantry lieutnant), in overall nice (albeit minimally used ie. worn- and/or clearly tunic-removed-) condition. The boards are as stated IMO used and/or worn and show minimal wear, age and/or minimal staining (see pictures). The shoulderboards measure approximately 10,7 cms. in length each and come mounted on their (unusually encountered- and/or small-sized-) officers-type tongues (which are executed in greyish-coloured 'braid'). The boards - which have smooth-woolen-based 'backings' and/or silver-greyish- (ie. truly 'sub-dued'-) 'upperdecks' as to be expected - have a pair of blue-coloured- and/or thin-shaped-, so-called: regimental indicator-cords (ie. 'Laschen') period-attached (see pictures). The pair has as stated fairly dull silver-coloured 'upperdecks' and was most certainly a pair that was intended for usage on a regular (ie. front-used-) tunic. This particular shoulderboard-pair originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. Simply an attractive pair of unusually seen officers'-type shoulderboards that was intended for a: 'Leutnant der Infanterie-Truppen': I deem that I have priced this neat pair accordingly!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulder- boards, as was intended for - and/or worn by! - a: 'Leutnant eines Panzer-Grenadiere-Regiments' The neat shoulderboards - which are truly 'text-book'-specimen in all facets and which measure approximately 10,6 cms. in length each - are piped in the neat bright-green- (ie. 'wiesengrüner')- coloured branchcolour and come mounted on their functional (small-sized-) officers'-type tongues. The pair - which has the typical 'smooth-woolen-based'- 'backings' as to be expected - has never any pips, numerals nor cyphers attached (the set was as such thus intended for a junior-officer ie.: 'Leutnant' or lieutnant). The set has sub-dued- and/or minimally tarnished 'upperdecks' and was most certainly a pair that was intended for usage on a 'front-used' tunic. The pair comes in a wonderful condition and will be very hard to be upgraded (I deem that it was minimally used ie. worn: some wear-marks- and/or minimal moth-tracking on the backs do corroborate this - see pictures). It should be noted that these bright-green piped-, 'Panzer-Grenadiere'-shoulderboard-pairs are quite hard to encounter and can easily be graded 'faily scarce'. Simply a nice pair that was intended for usage by a: 'Leutnant eines Panzer-Grenadiere-Regiments' and that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulder- boards, as was intended for - and/or worn by! - an: 'Oberstleutnant eines Panzer-Grenadiere-Regiments' The neat - and fairly high-ranked! - shoulderboards - are truly 'text-book'-specimen in all facets and measure approximately 9,7 cms. in length, each. They are piped in the neat bright-green- (ie. 'wiesengrüner')- coloured branchcolour and come mounted on their (small-sized-) tongues attached. The pair - which has truly smooth- ie. felt-woolen-based- 'backings' - shows a pair of (regular-sized- and/or: neatly golden-toned-) pips attached denoting that it was intended for usage by a fairly high-ranked officer with the rank of: 'Oberstleutnant' (ie. lieutnant-colonel. The pair has truly 'sub-dued'- and/or minimally tarnished 'upperdecks' and was most certainly a pair that was intended for usage on a regular, 'front-used'-tunic. The pair comes in a wonderful condition and will be very hard to be upgraded. It should be noted that these bright-green piped 'Panzer-Grenadiere'-shoulderboard-pairs are quite hard to encounter (especially when intended for the higher-ranked officers!) and can easily be graded 'faily scarce'. Simply a very attractive pair that was intended for usage by an: 'Oberstleutnant eines Panzer-Grenadiere-Regiments' which is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulder- boards, as was intended for - and/or worn by! - an: 'Oberstleutnant eines Panzer-Grenadiere-Regiments' The neat - and fairly high-ranked! - shoulderboards - are truly 'text-book'-specimen in all facets and measure approximately 11 cms. in length, each. They are piped in the neat bright-green- (ie. 'wiesengrüner')- coloured branchcolour and never had any tongues attached: they were clearly intended for usage as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type. The pair - which has truly smooth-woolen-based- backings - shows two (regular-sized- and/or: neatly golden-toned-) pips attached denoting that it was intended for usage by an officer with the rank of: 'Oberstleutnant' (ie. lieutnant-colonel. The pair has truly 'sub-dued'- and/or minimally tarnished 'upperdecks' and was most certainly a pair that was intended for usage on a 'front-used' tunic.

It should be noted that these bright-green piped 'Panzer-Grenadiere'-shoulderboard-pairs are quite hard to encounter (especially when intended for the higher-ranked officers!) and can easily be graded 'faily scarce'. Simply a very attractive pair that was intended for usage by an: 'Oberstleutnant eines Panzer-Grenadiere-Regiments' which is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulder- boards, as were intended for - and used by! - an: 'Oberleutnant eines Panzer- o. Panzerjäger-Regiments' The attractive pair is as to be expected piped in the neat bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour and was as such intended for usage by an: 'Oberleutnant eines Panzer- o. Panzerjäger-Regiments' (or lieutnant first-class who served within a tank- ie. anti-tank or tank-destroyer-regiment). The pair was IMO clearly issued, moderately used and/or carefully tunic-removed. The shoulderboards - which are constructed from the 'smooth-type' (ie. moleskin-like-) wool - are in an excellent condition overall and are truly hard to be upgraded. The fairly 'dull' appearance of the 'upperdecks' is fully present and/or preserved, making this IMO a pair that was probably intended for usage on a regular tunic (or even black-coloured, so-called: Panzer 'wrap-around'-tunic). The boards are just a tiny bit 'tarnished' by normal age (as can be seen on the pictures). The boards - which measure approximately 11,5 cms. in length each - have a (larger-sized- and/or golden-toned-) pip each attached, denoting the officers'-rank of: 'Oberleutnant'. The boards never had any tongues attached and were with certainty intended to be used as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type (they were as stated above carefully tunic-removed: the stitching-remains are still clearly visible (see pictures). It should be noted that these pink-piped officers'-type shoulderboards as were intended for an: 'Oberleutnant eines Panzer- o. Panzerjäger-Regiments' can easily be graded: 'scarce'.
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboards, as was intended for a: 'Leutnant eines Panzer-Grenadiere-Regiments' The shoulderboards - which are truly 'text-book'-specimen in all facets and which measure approximately 11,5 cms. in length each - are piped in the neat bright-green- (ie. 'wiesengrüner')- coloured branchcolour and come without tongues: they were clearly intended to be used as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type. The pair - which has very smooth-woolen-based- (ie. truly moleskin-like-) backings - never had any devices, pips nor cyphers attached (the set was as such intended for a junior-officer ie.: 'Leutnant'). The set has sub-dued- and/or minimally tarnished 'upperdecks' and was most certainly a pair that was intended for usage on a 'front-used' tunic. The pair comes in a virtually mint-/unissued condition and will be very hard to be upgraded. It should be noted that these bright-green piped 'Panzer-Grenadiere'-shoulderboard-paird are quite hard to encounter and can easily be graded 'faily scarce'.
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type, 'cyphered' shoulderboards, as was intended for - and worn by! - a: 'Hauptmann des Maschinengewehr-Abteilungs 4' This is an attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type, 'cyphered' shoulderboards, as piped in the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - a: 'Hauptmann des Maschinengewehr-Abteilungs 4' (or army captain who served within an infantry machine-gunners unit numbered '4'), in overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn- and/or clearly tunic-removed-) condition. The boards are as stated clearly used and/or worn and show minimal wear, age and/or minimal staining (see pictures). The shoulderboards measure approximately 10,5 cms. in length each and come mounted on their (typically small-sized-) officers-type tongues. The boards - which have smooth-woolen-based 'backings' and/or silver-greyish- (ie. truly 'sub-dued'-) 'upperdecks' as to be expected - have identical (golden-toned-, 'Gothic'-styled-, smaller-sized- and/or 'Buntmetall'-based-) 'M'-'cyphers' attached. Moreover, do they show two (regular-sized and/or also 'Buntmetall'-based-) '4'-numerals ie. 'cyphers' and four (golden-toned-) pips attached. All devices show some minimal age ie. tarnish but are just a bit stained ie. frosted as more often encountered. The pair has as stated fairly dull silver-coloured 'upperdecks' and was most certainly a pair that was intended for usage on a regular (ie. front-used-) tunic. This particular shoulderboard-pair originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. Simply a very attractive pair of 'cyphered' officers'-type shoulderboards that was intended for a: 'Hauptmann des Maschinengewehr-Abteilungs 4': I deem that I have priced the neat pair according to its comparative desirability and/or comparative rarity!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type, 'cyphered' shoulderboards, as was intended for - and worn by! - an: 'Oberleutnant des Maschinengewehr-Abteilungs 4' This is a very attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type, 'cyphered' shoulderboards, as piped in the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - an: 'Oberleutnant des Maschinen- gewehr-Abteilungs 4' (or lieutnant first-class who served within an infantry machine-gunners unit numbered '4'), in overall nice (albeit minimally used ie. worn- and/or clearly tunic-removed-) condition. The boards are as stated IMO used and/or worn and show minimal wear, age and/or minimal staining (see pictures). The shoulderboards measure approximately 10,5 cms. in length each and come mounted on their (typically small-sized-) officers-type tongues. The boards - which have smooth-woolen-based 'backings' and/or silver-greyish- (ie. truly 'sub-dued'-) 'upperdecks' as to be expected - have identical (golden-toned-, 'Gothic'-styled-, smaller-sized- and/or 'Buntmetall'-based-) 'M'-'cyphers' attached.

Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type- (and/or neatly 'cyphered'-) shoulderboards and dito collar-patches, as were intended for an: 'Offizier des Verwaltungsdienstes o. Oberzahlmeister' The attractive and/or: 'Verwaltungs'- ie. administration related- insignia-grouping is - as to be expected - piped in the bright-blue- (ie. 'hellblauer'-) coloured branchcolour and comes in an overall nice (albeit clearly issued and/or worn ie. tunic-removed-) condition). The attractive shoulderboards - which are fully 'textbook' in all facets and measure approximately 10,6 cms. in length each - never had any tongues attached and were clearly worn as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type (as can be seen on the pictures). The boards have fairly shiny-, silverish-coloured so-called: 'upperdecks' and were IMO a pair that was worn on a regular (ie. typical 'front-used'-) tunic. The boards show the neat, bronze-golden-toned (and/or: completely matching-) so-called: 'Merkurstab'-cyphers attached: both devices ie. 'cyphers' show some tarnish but were IMO never cleaned nor polished: they show a truly uncleaned and still nicely preserved, bronze-golden-toned age-patina. Next to this does the pair show a (matching-, and neatly equally golden-toned-) set of pips attached, denoting the officers-rank of: 'Offizier des Verwaltungsdienstes o. Oberzahlmeister' (being a rank- ie. function that was comparable with an: 'Oberleutnant' or: lieutnant first-class with the function of pay-master). The boards themselves are also a bit 'tarnished' and stained simply caused by normal age and/or decades of storage and/or moderate wear - see pictures. The shoulderboards came with an equally nicely preserved (and also moderately worn-) pair of neatly hand-embroidered-, officers'-type collar-patches (ie. 'Kragenspiegel') which are also piped in the bright-blue- (ie. 'hellblauer'-) coloured branchcolour. The silver-embroidery - which is executed on a dark-green coloured- and/or smooth woolen-based background as to be expected - shows some truly minimal staining ie. age (see pictures). The set is neatly 'backed' with beige-yellow-coloured- and/or: 'buckram'-based material as is more often encountered and was IMO once tunic-attached (by hand). This interesting insignia-grouping was as stated recently found at a private household in Germany and was never before in a collection: it belonged to an: 'Offizier des Verwaltungsdienstes o. Oberzahlmeister' who IMO most certainly wore this set and after that stored it for decades. Simply an attractive, untouched administrative-officers'-type insignia-set that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-) war period, 'M36'-pattern (pointed-styled-), 'cyphered', NCO-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for a: 'Stabsfeldwebel o.

Spiess des Infanterie-Regiments 42' (or: senior-NCO ie. company-sergeant who served within the infantry regiment, numbered: '42'), in overall nice, albeit moderately used- ie. worn- and/or tunic-removed-, condition. The straps - which are both approximately 11 cms. sized in length - have the 'standard-pattern' and/or: dark-green coloured-, woolen-based 'upperdecks' and have as stated above no piping nor branchcolour attached (see pictures). The shoulderstraps show the (standard-pattern-) silver-coloured NCO-braid attached and have each three (regular-sized- and/or aluminium-based-) pips period-attached, denoting that the pair was intended for an NCO with the unusually encountered rank of: 'Stabsfeldwebel' (ie. 'Spiess'). Next to this, the pair shows the (aluminium-based- and/or early pattern '4'- and/or: '2'-numerals attached. All ten devices were with certainty period-attached (in a sloppy manner!) and do show some regular age and/or tarnish. The pair comes mounted on its original tongues and does show some moderate age-, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very attractive - and IMO quite early- (ie. pre-war-) period, 'Heeres' NCO-type, 'Infanterie'-related shoulderstrap-pair that belonged to a: 'Stabsfeldwebel o. Spiess des Infanterie-Regiments 42': I deem that I have priced this attractive pair accordingly!

The straps - which are both approximately 11,4 cms. sized in length - have the 'standard-pattern' and/or: dark-green coloured-, woolen-based 'upperdecks' and have the the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured- and/or woolen-type piping ie. branchcolour attached (see pictures). The shoulderstraps show the (standard-pattern-) silver-coloured NCO-braid attached and have each three (regular-sized- and/or aluminium-based-) pips attached, denoting that the pair was intended for an NCO with the unusually encountered rank of: 'Stabswachtmeister' (ie. 'Spiess'). All six devices were period-attached and do show some regular age and/or tarnish. The pair comes mounted on its original tongues and does show some moderate age-, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very attractive - and IMO quite early- (ie. pre-war-) period, 'Heeres' NCO-type, '(Sturm)Artillerie'-related shoulderstrap-pair that belonged to a: 'Stabswachtmeister eines (Sturm)Artillerie-Regiments': I deem that I have priced this attractive set accordingly!

'hochroter'-) coloured- and/or woolen-type piping ie. branchcolour attached (see pictures). The shoulderstraps show the (standard-pattern-) silver-coloured NCO-braid attached, denoting that the pair was intended for an NCO with the rank of: 'Unterwachtmeister' (ie. 'Uffz.'). The pair comes mounted on its original tongues and does show some moderate age-, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply an attractive - and IMO quite early- (ie. pre-war-) period, 'Heeres' NCO-type, '(Sturm)Artillerie'-related shoulderstrap-pair that belonged to an: 'Unterwachtmeister eines (Sturm)Artillerie-Regiments': I deem that I have priced this attractive set accordingly!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-war-) period, 'M36'-pattern- (ie. pointed-styled- and/or neatly 'cyphered'-) shoulderstraps, as was intended for an: 'Uffz. des Infanterie-Regiments 74' This is a very attractive - and actually scarcely encountered and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-war-) period, 'M36'-pattern- (ie. pointed-styled- and/or neatly 'cyphered' and/or naturally non-piped-) shoulderstraps, as was intended for usage by an: 'Unteroffizier des Infanterie-Regiments 74' (or junior-sergeant who served within the infantry-regiment ie. unit numbered: '74'), in overall very nice- (albeit IMO moderately used ie. worn-) condition. The straps - which are both approximately 11 cms. sized in length - have the 'standard-type' and/or darker-green-coloured, smooth-woolen-based 'upperdecks' and have (of course) no piping (as per regulation). Both shoulderstraps show the neat (machine-embroidered by means of so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei'-) so-called: '74'-cyphers ie. numerals. Both 'cyphers' are executed in the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured wool ie. linnen as to be expected (see pictures). The straps - which come mounted on their functional tongues and do have the 'standard'- ie. early pattern- and/or fairly shiny, silverish-coloured NCO-braid attached - show as stated moderate usage and/or wear (some minor staining and/or dust is however visible and/or present, especially on the back of one of the tongues - see pictures). It should be noted that all 'cyphered': 'Infanterie'-related shoulderstraps are very desirable and can easily be regarded 'fairly rare', even more when they are in such a nicely preserved condition. In any case an attractive (and actually not that easily encountered!) early- ie. pre-war-period, 'cyphered Heeres' shoulderstrap-pair which is IMO accordingly priced!

All six devices show some regular age, wear and/or staining (see pictures) but have nevertheless remained great, pronounced detail. Of addtional interest is the fact that one the straps still shows its glass-based button in place (there to accomodate the shooting-lanyard). The straps - which comes mounted on their functional tongues - show as stated above some moderate usage and/or wear (some minor staining and/or dust is visible and/or present). It should be noted that all 'cyphered'-pattern shoulderstraps can be easily regarded 'fairly scarce'. This particular pair originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired.

They come mounted on their functional tongues and have the 'standard'-pattern and/or: bright-silver-coloured, WH 'Heeres'-type NCO-braid attached as to be expected: furthermore, does the set show, four, identical (regular-sized- and/or: aluminium- ie. zinc-based-) pips attached, denoting that the NCO who wore this set served as an: 'Oberfeldwebel eines Infanterie-Regiments'. All four devices show some equal wear ie. are somewhat tarnished. The pair shows some truly minimal age, wear and/or staining as to be expected.

Both pips show some equal wear ie. are somewhat tarnished. The pair was IMO only minimally used and/or worn and shows minimal age, wear and/or staining as to be expected.

'schwarzer'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and clearly used by! - an: 'Oberfeldwebel des Pionier-Batallions 51' (or: sergeant first-class who served within the army engineers batalion numbered: '51'), in overall nice- (albeit moderately used and/or worn- ie. tunic-removed-), condition. The neat straps - which have the 'standard'-pattern-, darker-green-coloured and/or: smooth-woolen-based 'upperdecks' - have the neat black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured (and/or: 'rayon'-type-) piping attached (see pictures). The (IMO privately purchased- ie. non-'regular-issued'-type-) straps measure approximately 11,5 cms. in length each and are fully matching in style and/or execution. They never had any tongues and were intended to be used a pair of the 'sew-in'-type: they have the 'standard'-pattern and/or: bright-silver-coloured, WH 'Heeres'-type NCO-braid attached as to be expected: furthermore, does the set show two, identical (regular-sized- and/or zinc-based-) pips and neat (also matching- and/or equally 'Buntmetall'-based-) so-called: '5'- and/or: '1'-numerals ie. cyphers attached, denoting that the NCO who wore this set served as an: 'Oberfeldwebel des Pionier-Batallions 51'. All devices show some equal wear ie. are somewhat tarnished. The pair shows minimal age, wear and/or staining as to be expected. This particular shoulderstrap-set originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. Simply a great occasion to acquire an attractive and desirable NCO-type, 'Pioniere'-related shoulderstrap-pair for IMO a competitive price!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), IMO early-war period (ie. 'M36'-model- ie. rounded-style-) EM-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for a: 'Soldat der Heeres Nachrichten-Truppen' This is an attractive - and/or: fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), IMO early-war period (ie. 'M36'-pattern- and/or: rounded-style-) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps, as was piped in the neat bright-yellow- (ie. 'zitronengelber'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and most certainly worn by! - a: 'Soldat der Heeres Nachrichten-Truppen' (or simple soldier who served within an army signals unit ie. regiment), in overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition. The neat straps - which have the 'standard'-pattern, darker-green-coloured- and/or 'smooth-woolen'-based 'upperdecks' and which are of the 'regular-issued'-type - show the neat bright-yellow- (ie. 'zitronen- gelber'-) coloured- (and/or: woolen-type-) piping attached. The straps which measure approximately 11,2 cms. in length each, come mounted on their functional tongues and are of course in a nice, ie. fully 'text-book' condition, overall. The straps show - as stated above - only moderate usage ie. wear (some regular age, dust and/or staining is clearly visible and/or present). The pair originates from a private household in Germany and was carefully stored and kept as such for decades: the pair was never before in a collection. Simply a great occasion to acquire a nice and most certainly desirable EM-type, 'Heeres Nachrichten'-shoulderstrap-pair that was worn by a: 'Soldat der Heeres Nachrichten-Truppen'!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), IMO mid-war period (ie. 'M43'-pattern-) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps, as were intended for a: 'Soldat der Infanterie-Truppen' The neat shoulderstraps - which have the field-grey coloured- and/or typical woolen-based 'upperdecks' - have the desirable white- (ie. 'weisser'-) and/or 'silk-like'-type piping attached and measure approximately 11,4 cms. in length each, as is more often encountered. The straps come mounted on their original tongues and are in an overall nice, ie. fully 'text-book' condition overall: the boards show clear age, wear and/or obvious staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The straps - which were intended for a: 'Soldat der Infanterie-Truppen' (or simple army infantry soldier) - show as stated above clear usage and/or wear (they are however not damaged or alike: they just show the signs of having been extensively used). The pair was with certainly always together and was worn as such as a pair. It should be noted that these white-piped, enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps are very desirable and can nowadays easily be graded 'scarce': this is one of those shoulderstrap-pairs that every collector is searching-for but that is simply not that often offered for sale!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), IMO mid-war-period (ie. 'M43'-pattern-) NCO-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for an: 'Oberfeldwebel der Sanitäts-Truppen' The atttractive pair is piped in the neat blue- (ie. 'blauer'-) coloured branchcolour and was as such as intended for - and worn by! - an: 'Oberfeldwebel der Sanitäts-Truppen' (or sergeant first-class and/or medical-NCO ie. orderly who served within a medical-unit ie. regiment). The pair is clearly worn as such and shows some obvious - albeit moderate - wear, age and/or staining. The 'text-book' shoulderstraps both measure approximately 11,6 cms. in length each and have the desirable, blue- (ie. 'blauer'-) coloured- and/or 'silk-like'-type piping attached as more often encountered with these mid- (ie. later-) war-period shoulderstrap-pairs. The shoulderstraps have the field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks': they are IMO only moderately used ie. worn and do show some truly minimal wear, age and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The straps - which show four (identical-, zinc-based-, silver-coloured- and/or regular-sized-) pips attached as to be expected - come naturally mounted on their functional tongues and have the neat 'standard'-type-, silverish-coloured- (ie. fairly 'shiny'-) 'Heeres'-type- NCO-braid attached. This particular shoulderstrap-pair originated from a large cloth- and/or shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. Simply a great occasion to acquire a very attractive and most certainly desirable NCO-type shoulderstrap-pair that belonged to an: 'Oberfeldwebel der Sanitäts-Truppen'!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), mid-war period, 'M43'-pattern- and/or 'cyphered', NCO-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for a: 'Stabsfeldwebel o. Spiess des Infanterie-Regiments 15' This is a truly very attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), mid-war period, 'M43'-pattern-, 'cyphered', NCO-type shoulderstraps having the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or clearly worn by! - a: 'Stabsfeldwebel o. Spiess des Infanterie-Regiments 15' (or: senior-NCO ie. company-sergeant who served within the infantry regiment, numbered: '15'), in overall nice, albeit moderately used- ie. worn- and/or tunic-removed-, condition. The straps - which are both approximately 11,6 cms. sized in length - have the 'standard-pattern' and/or: field-grey-coloured-, woolen-based 'upperdecks' and have as stated above the desirable 'silk-like'-type- and/or white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour ie. piping attached (see pictures). The shoulderstraps show the (standard-pattern-) silver-coloured NCO-braid attached and have each three (smaller-sized- and/or aluminium-based-) pips period-attached, denoting that the pair was intended for an NCO with the unusually encountered rank of: 'Stabsfeldwebel' (ie. 'Spiess'). Next to this, the pair shows the (aluminium-based- and/or early pattern '1'- and/or: '5'-numerals attached. All ten devices were with certainty period-attached (in a somewhat sloppy manner!) and do show some regular age and/or tarnish. The pair comes mounted on its original tongues and does show some moderate age-, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very attractive mid-war-period, 'Heeres' NCO-type, 'Infanterie'-related shoulderstrap-pair that belonged to a: 'Stabsfeldwebel o. Spiess des Infanterie-Regiments 15': I deem that I have priced this attractive M43 pair accordingly!

'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or clearly worn by! - an: 'Oberfeldwebel eines Infanterie-Regiments' (or: sergeant first-class who served within an infantry regiment), that come in an overall nice (albeit moderately used- ie. worn- and/or clearly tunic-removed-), condition. The neat straps - which are both approximately 10,5 cms. sized in length - have the 'standard-pattern'- and/or: field-grey-coloured-, woolen-based 'upperdecks' and have the desirable 'silk-like'-type- and/or white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour ie. piping attached (see pictures). The shoulderstraps show the (standard- ie. sub-dued pattern-) bluish-grey-coloured NCO-braid attached and have each two (regular-sized- and/or aluminium- ie. zinc based-) pips period-attached, denoting that the pair was intended for an NCO with the rank of: 'Oberfeldwebel' (ie. sergeant first class). All four devices were with certainty period-attached (in a somewhat sloppy manner!) and do show some regular age and/or minimal tarnish. The pair comes mounted on its original tongues and does show some moderate age-, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very attractive mid-war-period-, 'Heeres' NCO-type, 'Infanterie'-related shoulderstrap-pair that belonged to an: 'Oberfeldwebel eines Infanterie-Regiments': I deem that I have priced this attractive M43-type pair (that was never before part of a collection and which was recently found as such) accordingly!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (KM) 'cyphered' and/or: dark-green-coloured, NCO-type: 'Küsten-/Marineartillerie' shoulderstraps, as was intended for usage by an: 'Unteroffizier eines Küsten-Artillerie-Regiments' This is a very attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Kriegsmarine) 'cyphered'- and/or: darker-green-coloured-, NCO-type: 'Küsten-/Marineartillerie' (or: coastal-artillery) shoulderstraps, depicting the neat, interwoven 'crossed-anchor'-symbols (as was executed in golden-yellow-toned linnen), as was intended for usage by an: 'Unteroffizier eines Küsten-Artillerie-Regiments' (or: junior-sergeant who served within a coastal-artillery unit ie. regiment), in overall nice (albeit clearly used- ie. tunic-removed-) condition. The straps are completely constructed from the 'smooth-type'-wool and are IMO as such a 'privately-purchased' (ie. tailor-made-) pair. The straps show the neat interwoven- ie. machine-embrodered-, golden-yellow-toned 'crossed-anchor'-devices, being the symbol for the naval coastal-artillery (or: 'Marine- o. Küstenartillerie'). The straps come mounted on their period tongues. The straps measure 4,5 cms. in width and are approximately 11,2 cms. long-sized, as is more often encountered with these navy-related boards.). They have the (bright) golden-toned KM-type NCO-braid attached, denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Unteroffizier'. The pair has clearly been used and shows some obvious age, wear and or staining - see pictures. Simply a very nice and desirable pair of 'cyphered' and/or: darker-green-coloured, 'Marine- o. Küstenartillerie' NCO-type shoulderstraps: it has been some time that I had such an attractive pair on offer!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Kriegsmarine) neatly 'cyphered'-, officers’-type shoulderboards, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - a: 'Fregattenkapitän u. Ingenieur der Kriegsmarine' This is an attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Kriegsmarine) neatly 'cyphered'-, officers’-type shoulderboards, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - a: 'Fregattenkapitän u. Ingenieur der Kriegsmarine', in overall very nice (albeit clearly used- ie. worn- and/or : carefully tunic-removed-), condition. The neat shoulderboards - which are constructed from the black- (ie. darker-blue-) coloured- and/or: 'smooth-type'- (ie. moleskin-like-) wool - come in an excellent condition overall and will be hard to be upgraded: the 'shiny' appearance of the silver-embroidery on both boards is present and preserved: they are, however, just a bit 'tarnished' by normal age. The boards - which measure 10,7 cms. in length - show 2 identical (regular-sized- and/or: golden-toned- and identical-) pips and 2 naval 'Zahnrad' specialist-'cyphers' (all devices still retain all of their golden-toned finish but are a bit tarnished over the years - see pictures). The boards never had any tongues: they were used as a pair of the sew-in-type and were with certainty used as such as is more often encountered. The set comes with its neat (golden-toned) set of 'Schraubknöpfe' as found. This interesting Kriegsmarine shoulderboard-pair was recently found at a private household in Germany and was never before in a collection: it belonged to a: 'Fregattenkapitän u. Ingenieur der Kriegsmarine' (who most certainly wore and stored these for decades). Simply an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - neatly 'cyphered'- and/or high-ranked-, 'Kriegsmarine' shoulderboard-pair that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe) 'cyphered'-, enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - a: 'Soldat der Flieger o. Fallschirmtruppen u. Mitglied einer Kriegsschule' The attractive - and fairly scarcely encountered and IMO pre- ie. early-war period - WH (Luftwaffe) shoulderstrap-pair is piped in the golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour and shows the woolen-type piping as more often seen. The straps - which measure approximately 12 cms. in length each - were clearly used ie. worn and originated from a private household in Germany (they were clearly 'cut-off' a tunic as can be seen on the pictures). Both straps came without tongues (they were with certainty worn as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type) and show the Gothic-styled (and/or golden-yellow-coloured-) 'KS'-cyphers (which are executed in the neat 'Kurbelstickerei') denoting that the soldier who wore these straps was a: 'Soldat der Flieger o. Fallschirmtruppen u. Mitglied einer Kriegsschule' (or: soldier and member within one of the Luftwaffe war-schools). The pair was - as stated above - clearly worn and/or used and does show some obvious age, wear and/or staining - see pictures). It should be noted that all LW-type, 'cyphered' shoulderstrap-pairs can easily be graded 'scarce' and are not that often offered for sale. Simply an attractive- and/of fully matching EM-type pair that can easily be used to complete a LW 'Viertaschenrock' or shoulderstrap-collection!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe) 'cyphered'-, NCO-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - a: 'Feldwebel der Flieger o. Fallschirmtruppen u. Mitglied einer Kriegsschule' The attractive - and fairly scarcely encountered and IMO mid- ie. early-war period - WH (Luftwaffe) NCO-type shoulderstrap-pair is as to be expected piped in the golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour and shows the desirable 'silk-like'-type piping as is more often seen. The straps - which measure approximately 11,7 cms. in length each - were clearly used ie. worn and originated from a private household in Germany (they come naturally mounted on their functional tongues as can be seen on the pictures). The straps show a matching pair of (zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based- and/or Gothic-styled-) so-called: 'KS'-cyphers and two (regular sized-, non-matching and also zinc-based-) pips period-attached denoting that the NCO who wore these straps was a: 'Feldwebel der Flieger o. Fallschirmtruppen u. Mitglied einer Kriegsschule' (or: sergeant presumably a trainer and member within one of the various Luftwaffe war-schools). The pair was - as stated above - clearly worn and/or used and does show some obvious age, wear and/or staining - see pictures). Simply an attractive- and/or matching NCO-type shoulderstrap-pair that can easily be used to complete a LW 'Viertaschenrock' or shoulderstrap-collection. It should be noted that these 'cyphered'-, NCO-type shoulder- straps, as intended for a: 'Feldwebel der Flieger o. Fallschirmtruppen u. Mitglied einer Kriegsschule' can easily be graded 'scarce' and are with certainty not that often offered for sale!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe) 'summer-style-'shoulderstraps (as was specifically intended for usage on the: 'blau-mellierter'-summer-shirts) as was intended for an: 'Uffz. der Flieger-o. Fallschirmjäger-Truppen' The truly very attractive - and with certainty rarely encountered! - shoulderstraps are both approximately 10,7 cms. sized in length and are only moderately used and/or worn: they show the neat golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour (ie. 'silk-like'-type piping-) attached. The straps - which are both executed in the typical bluish-/white- (ie. 'blau-mellierter'-) coloured and/or linnen-based - cloth, come naturally mounted on their functional tongues. Both have the typical (greyish-blue-coloured- ie. Luftwaffe-summer-style-) NCO-braid attached as to be expected (see pictures). The pair shows some obvious age, wear and/or staining (but is fully undamaged). Of additional interest is naturally the fact that this pair is fully matching in all facets: something that is most certainly not always the case with these neat WH (Luftwaffe) 'summer-style', NCO-type shirt-shoulderstraps. This pair originates from my own private shoulderstrap-collection. It should be noted that these LW summer-style-, NCO-type shirt-shoulderstraps can easily be considered 'rare': even more so when they come in such a neat and/or only moderately used- ie. worn condition!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe) 'tropical-style-' shoulderstraps (as was specifically intended for usage on the tropical-shirts ie. tunics!) as was intended for an: 'Uffz. der Flieger-o. Fallschirmjäger-Truppen' The shoulderstraps - which are both approximately 10 cms. sized in length - are IMO only minimally used and/or worn: they show the neat golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour (ie. 'silk-like'-type piping-) attached and were as such intended for usage by a junior-sergeant who served within the Luftwaffe flight- ie. paratroops. The attractive straps - which are both executed in the regular albeit slightly 'thinner'-styled- and/or: somewhat more smooth-like- linnen - come naturally mounted on their functional tongues. Both have the typical (chocolate-brown-coloured- ie. Luftwaffe-tropical-style-) NCO-braid attached as to be expected (see pictures). The pair shows some obvious age, wear and/or staining (but is fully undamaged). Of additional interest is naturally the fact that this pair is fully matching in all facets: something that is most certainly not always the case with these WH (Luftwaffe) 'tropical-styled' NCO-type shoulderstraps. This great pair originates from my own private shoulderstrap-collection. It should be noted that these LW tropical-styled-, NCO-type shoulderstraps can easily be considered 'scarce': even more so when they come in such a neat and/or only moderately used- ie. worn condition!

Both have the typical (chocolate-brown-coloured- ie. Luftwaffe-tropical-style-) NCO-braid and/or: one single (greyish-coloured- and/or: zinc-based-) pip attached as to be expected (see pictures). The pair shows some obvious age, wear and/or staining (but is fully undamaged).

'grüner'-) coloured branchcolour and were as such intended for a soldier belonging to one of the the later-war-period, so-called: 'LW-Felddivisionen' (or later-war period LW infantry-related units ie. ground-troops). It should be noted that these typical green-piped, LW-type shoulderstraps can be considered 'fairly rare' and saw also usage on for example on the specific 3/4-sized FD-camouflaged smocks. The shoulderstrap-pair comes in a very nice (as mentioned IMO virtually mint- ie. unissued-) condition and shows no defaults nor wear whatsoever. The set is totally matching and measures 10 cms. in length each. The set comes mounted on its functional tongues and has the neat, typical green-coloured and/or 'silk-like'-type piping attached (see pictures). Simply a very attractive and/or rarely encountered pair of 'text-book', LW-'Felddivisionen'-insignia: great to complete or restore a tunic or excellently fitted to be stored in any shoulderstrap-collection!

They do not show any defaults whatsoever: just some regular usage ie. regular wear is noticable and/or present. The straps measure approximately 9,5 cms. in length each and come naturally mounted on their functional tongues. The set shows the neat darker-blue- (ie. 'blauer'-) coloured and/or: 'silk-like'-type piping and has the 'standard-pattern', bright-silver-coloured NCO-braid attached, denoting the rank of: 'Unteroffizier'. The set shows - as stated above - some regular staining and wear, simply caused by usage, wear and/or decades of storage. Simply a very attractive shoulder- strap-pair that belonged to an: 'Unteroffizier der Sanitäts-Truppen' that is IMO accordingly priced: impossible to 'upgrade' this pair!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe) neatly 'cyphered'-, enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps, as were intended for usage by a soldier who served within the: 'Flak-Artillerie Abteilungs 34' This is an attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe) neatly 'cyphered'-, enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps as was piped in the bright-red- (ie.

The pair shows almost no wear whatsoever: just some minimal age ie. wear is visible/present. Simply a great and/or fully 'matching' pair that can easily be used to complete a LW 'Viertaschenrock'!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe), enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for a: 'Soldat eines Flakartillerie-Regiments' This is a very attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe), enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps, as was piped in the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branch- colour as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat eines Flakartillerie-Regiments' (or: simple anti-aircraft soldier), in overall very nice (ie. virtually mint- ie. unissued-), condition. The neat shoulderstraps - which measure approximately 11,1 cms. in length each and that come naturally mounted on their functional tongues - are as stated piped in the neat bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) branchcolour and have the desirable 'silk-like'-type piping attached. The straps - which originate from the left-overs of an old tailor-shop - have the bluish-grey coloured and/or smooth-woolen-based 'upperdecks' and were with certainty meant as a: 'standard-issue'-type pair (see pictures). The straps show some minimal age ie. staining but are totally void of any damage. Simply a great occasion to acquire an attractive and virtually 'mint'-, enlisted-mens'-type LW-shoulderstrap-pair that was intended for a: 'Soldat eines Flakartillerie-Regiments'!

Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe), NCO-type shoulder- straps, as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel eines Flakartillerie-Regiments' This is a very attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe), NCO-type shoulderstraps, as was piped in the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branch- colour as was intended for usage by a: 'Feldwebel eines Flakartillerie-Regiments' (or: sergeant who served within an anti-aircraft unit), that comes in an overall very nice (ie. IMO minimally used- ie. worn-), condition. The neat shoulderstraps - which measure approximately 10,8 cms. in length each and that come naturally mounted on their functional tongues - are as stated piped in the neat bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) branchcolour and have the desirable 'silk-like'-type piping attached (as can be seen on the pictures). The straps have the bluish-grey coloured- and/or smooth-woolen-based 'upperdecks' and were with certainty meant as a: 'standard-issue'-type pair (see pictures). The straps show the (not that always seen!) greyish-coloured- (ie. sub-dued-) type NCO-braid and single-based pip (each) attached denoting the NCOs-rank of: 'Feldwebel' (ie. sergeant). The straps show some minimal age, wear and/or staining but are totally void of any damage. Simply a great occasion to acquire an attractive and nicely preserved-, NCO-type LW-shoulderstrap-pair that was intended for a: 'Feldwebel eines Flakartillerie-Regiments'!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe), NCO-type shoulder- straps, as was intended for a: 'Wachtmeister o. Feldwebel eines Flakartillerie-Regiments' This is a truly attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe), NCO-type shoulderstraps, having the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for a: 'Wachtmeister o. Feldwebel eines Flakartillerie-Regiments' (or sergeant who served within an anti-aircraft unit), in overall very nice (ie. IMO only minimally used- ie. worn-), condition. The neat shoulderstraps - which measure approximately 10,5 cms. in length each - come mounted on their functional tongues as to be expected: they are as stated piped in the neat bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) branchcolour and have the neat and desirable 'silk-like'-type piping. The straps - which naturally have the silver-coloured, typical WH (Luftwaffe) NCO-braid attached - show two (matching, silver-coloured- and/or zinc-based-) pips attached denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Feldwebel'. The set shows some truly minimal age, wear and/or minimal staining but is totally undamaged. Simply a very nice and/or 'standard-issued', NCO-type shoulderstrap-pair that was intended for a: 'Wachtmeister o. Feldwebel eines Flakartillerie-Regiments'!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe), NCO-type shoulder- straps, as was intended for a: 'Wachtmeister o. Feldwebel eines Flakartillerie-Regiments' This is a truly attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe), NCO-type shoulderstraps, having the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for a: 'Wachtmeister o. Feldwebel eines Flakartillerie-Regiments' (or sergeant who served within an anti-aircraft unit), in overall very nice (ie. IMO only minimally used- ie. worn-), condition. The neat shoulderstraps - which measure approximately 11,9 cms. in length each - come mounted on their functional tongues as to be expected: they are as stated piped in the neat bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) branchcolour and have the neat and desirable 'silk-like'-type piping. The straps - which naturally have the silver-coloured, typical WH (Luftwaffe) NCO-braid attached - show two (matching, silver-coloured- and/or zinc-based-) pips attached denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Feldwebel'. The set shows some truly minimal age, wear and/or minimal staining but is totally undamaged (I deem that it can easily be graded virtually mint). Simply a very nice and/or 'standard-issued', NCO-type shoulderstrap-pair that was intended for a: 'Wachtmeister o. Feldwebel eines Flakartillerie-Regiments'!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (LW) officers'-type collar-patches, executed in bright-red coloured wool, as were intended for a: 'Leutnant der Flak-Artillerie-Truppen' This is a truly very attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe) officers'-type collar-patches (ie. 'Kragenspiegel für Offiziere'), as executed in the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured and/or 'moleskin'-type- wool, as was specifically intended for usage by a: 'Leutnant der Flak-Artillerie-Truppen' (or lieutnant who served within the anti-aircraft artillery-troops), in an overall very nice (ie. IMO virtually mint-/unissued-) condition. The pair is neatly hand-embroidered and shows great detail and/or craftmenship (as can be seen on the pictures). The patches were possibly issued but simply never used nor tunic-attached. The pieces have a 'standard-type', yellowish-coloured- and/or buckram-based backing - see pictures). Simply a truly very attractive pair of LW officers'-type collar-tabs that IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (LW) officers'-type shoulderboards, as was executed in bright-red-coloured wool, as was intended for a: 'Leutnant der Flak-Artillerie-Truppen' I recently uncovered two (fully identical and/or fully matching-) pairs of WH (Luftwaffe) officers'-type shoulderboards, both pairs as executed in the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured and/or: 'moleskin'-type- wool, as were intended for usage by a: 'Leutnant der Flak-Artillerie-Truppen' (or lieutnant who served within the anti-aircraft artillery-troops), both pairs in an overall very nice (ie. IMO virtually mint-/unissued-) condition. The pairs have the silver- (ie. somewhat 'shiny'-type-) 'upperdecks' as to be expected: they can easily be graded: 'mint-/unissued' and were simply never used nor issued (they originated from the left-overs of an old tailor-shop - see pictures). The boards show the desirable bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour (and were constructed from the 'smooth-type' wool as to be expected). The boards never had any tongues attached and were with certainty intended to be used as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type. They measure approximately 11,5 cms. in length each. The pairs were clearly never worn nor tunic-attached and do show some minimal age and/or staining (IMO caused by decades of storage only - see pictures). The pairs never had any pips, numerals nor cyphers attached and were thus intended for a junior-officer with the rank of: 'Leutnant'. The asking-price is naturally intended per matching pair. Simply a great occasion to aquire a pair of LW officers'-type shoulderboards as were intended for a: 'Leutnant der Flak-Artillerie-Truppen'!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of: 'M36'-styled- (ie. rounded-pattern) and neatly 'cyphered', WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for - and/or clearly worn by! - a: 'Feldwebel der Infanterie-Truppen im Wehrkreis VII' The neat shoulderstraps - which are IMO moderately used ie. worn and that were carefully tunic-removed - measure approximately 12,2 cms. in length, each and both have the darker-green-coloured- and/or 'smooth'-woolen-based-, 'upperdecks': they show the white- (ie. 'weisser')- coloured and/or: woolen-type piping, attached. The set never had any tongues attached and comes as minimally worn-, carefully tunic-removed- and/or stored for decades. The set has the 'standard'-pattern and/or (bright-) silver-coloured NCO-braid attached and shows two sets of (bright-) silver-coloured- and/or: 'Buntmetall'-based-, Latin-styled-, so-called: 'W'- and/or: Roman-styled-, so-called: 'VII'-cyphers-, attached. Next to this the set shows two (also identical, silver-toned- and/or: somewhat smaller-sized-) pips attached, denoting the NCOs-rank of: 'Feldwebel' ie. sergeant. All six devices are somewhat stained- ie. tarnished, simply caused by wear and/or decades of storage. The pair - which is as stated fully matching and that was always together and/or worn as such - is just a tiny bit dirty ie. stained and shows some evidence of having been used and/or worn (see pictures). The pair - which is with certainty a 'standard-issued'-pair that was (IMO) intended for usage on a 'Waffenrock' (or dress- ie. going-out-tunic) is simply hard to be upgraded. I deem that I have priced this attractive pair as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel der Infanterie-Truppen im Wehrkreis VII', accordingly!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - set of rarely encountered N.S.D.A.P.-type-, velvet-based collar-patches, as was intended for a high-ranked party-official or: 'N.S.D.A.P.-Abschnittsleiter' at 'Reichs'-level This is a truly very attractive - and/or fully matching! - set ie. pair of rarely encountered N.S.D.A.P.-type-, velvet-based collar-patches (being of the the fourth and/or final- pattern) as were intended for an: 'N.S.D.A.P.-Abschnittsleiter' at 'Reichs'-level, in overall nice (IMO virtually mint- and/or never tunic-attached-) condition. The neat pieces - which are constructed from the typical purple-red-coloured, 'smooth-type'- and/or velvet-based cloth - come in a wonderfull condition overall: they both have the neat metal (ie. zinc- ie. aluminium-based-) and/or golden-toned (laurel-) devices attached and were as stated above never mounted on a tunic. The tabs are piped with the bright-yellow-coloured, rayon-based piping (as more often seen) signifying that the pair was intended for a party-official at (the highest!) level ie.: 'Reichs'-level. One of the tabs shows a paper-based ‘RzM’-etiket attached ('B-Stück') - see pictures. The set shows some (truly non-disturbing-) tarnish and/or aging simply caused by having been stored as such for decades. In any case is this a neat and actually fairly high-ranked N.S.D.A.P.-collar-tab pair that is truly rarely encountered and that is not often offered for sale. Only the first such neat N.S.D.A.P.-related collar-tab-pair in this particular rank I ever had on offer!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - WH (Heeres) (and/or: 'Pioniere'-related-) officers-type shoulderboard-pair, as was intended for a: 'Leutnant der Pionier-Truppen', that comes still packed in its 'Cellophan'-based wrapping-paper This is a truly very attractive - and/or fully matching! - WH (Heeres) (and/or: 'Pioniere'-related-) officers-type shoulderboard-pair, as was piped in the black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for a: 'Leutnant der Pionier-Truppen' (or: army engineers'-lieutnant), that comes still packed in its 'Cellophan'-based wrapping-paper, in overall very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued- and/or never tunic-attached-) condition. The boards never had any tongues attached and were intended to be worn as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type: they were simply never used nor unpacked. The boards measure approximately 11 cms. in length and have somewhat greyish-silver-coloured- (ie. somewhat sub-dued-) 'upperdecks'. The set - which originates from the left-overs of an old tailor-shop - is executed in the smooth-type, black- (ie. 'schwarzer'-) coloured wool and was as such intended for usage by a: 'Leutnant der Pionier-Truppen' (or: engineers'-lieutnant). Simply a neat and/or fully matching TR-era: 'Pioniere' officers'-type shoulderboard-pair: great to complete any 'Pioniere' officers'-tunic or to be simply stored as such in an insignia- or shoulderboard-collection!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - WH (Heeres) (and/or: 'Pz.- o. Pz-jäger'-related-) officers-type shoulderboard-pair, as was intended for a: 'Leutnant der Panzer- o. Pz-Jäger-Truppen', that comes still packed in its 'Cellophan'-based wrapping-paper This is a truly very attractive - and/or fully matching! - WH (Heeres) (and/or: 'Panzer- o. Panzerjäger'-related-) officers-type shoulderboard-pair, as was piped in the desirable bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for a: 'Leutnant der Panzer- o. Panzerjäger-Truppen' (or: army panzer-lieutnant), that comes still packed in its period 'Cellophan'-based wrapping-paper, in overall very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued- and/or naturally never tunic-attached-) condition. The boards never had any tongues attached and were intended to be worn as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type: they were simply never used nor unpacked. The boards measure approximately 11 cms. in length and have somewhat greyish-silver-coloured- (ie. somewhat sub-dued-) 'upperdecks'. The set - which originates from the left-overs of an old tailor-shop - is executed in the smooth-type, bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured wool and was as such intended for usage by a: 'Leutnant der Panzer- o. Panzerjäger-Truppen'. The pair still shows a period inventory-etiket (that shows a number or price that reads: '1.54' - see pictures). Simply a neat and/or fully matching TR-era: 'Panzer- o. Panzerjäger'-related officers'-type shoulderboard-pair: great to complete any 'Panzer- o. Panzerjäger'-officers'-tunic (ie. 'wrap-around'-tunic) or to be simply stored as such in an insignia- or shoulderboard-collection!
Attractive - and/or fully matching! - WH (Heeres), officers'-type shoulderboard-pair (that comes mounted on its unsually seen: 'Auf der Steg'-mounting!), as was intended for an: 'Oberstleutnant eines Infanterie-Regiments' This is a truly very attractive - and/or fully matching! - WH (Heeres), officers'-type shoulderboard-pair (that comes mounted on its unsually seen: 'Auf der Steg'-mounting!) and that is piped in the neat white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by an: 'Oberstleutnant eines Infanterie-Regiments' (or: lieutnant-colonel who served in- ie. possibly commanded! an army infantry regiment), that come in an overall very nice- (albeit IMO minimally used ie. worn- and/or tunic-removed-), condition. The shoulderboards come mounted on their seldomly seen 'Auf der Steg'-set-up ie. mounting and where most likely used on a white-coloured- (or: summer-type-) tunic. They are truly 'text-book'-examples of the 'Heeres'-type 'Infanterie'-shoulderboards and have the greyish-silver- (ie. somewhat shiny-) 'upperdecks'. The boards show the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour (and are constructed from the smooth- ie. 'moleskin'-type wool). The boards show two (larger-sized-, golden-toned- and/or: 'Buntmetall'-based- albeit tarnished-) pips period-attached, denoting the officers'-rank of: 'Oberstleutnant' or: lieutnant-colonel. The boards measure approximately 10 cms. in length each. The pair was most certainly used and/or worn and such and shows minimal age, wear and/or staining. Simply a very attractive - and comparatively scarcely encountered! - fairly high-ranked-, officers'-type-, 'Infanterie'-related shoulderboard-pair that belonged to an: 'Oberstleutnant eines Infanterie-Regiments'!
Attractive - and/or fully undamaged! - example of a bluish-coloured (albeit empty) etui (ie. container) fitted to store a pair of WH (Luftwaffe) pilots'-flight-goggles ie.: 'Flieger-Splitterschutzbrillen mit Ultrasin-Gläsern (Type: “D”)' This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - example of a a bluish-coloured (albeit empty) etui (ie. container) fitted to store a pair of WH (Luftwaffe) pilots'-flight-goggles ie.: 'Flieger-Splitterschutzbrillen mit Ultrasin-Gläsern (Type: “D”)', that comes in an overall very nice (albeit IMO clearly issued ie. used-), condition. The metal-based container on offer here truly retains most (ie. all) of its darker-blue-coloured finish and also retains its carton-based inner-pouch as issued (something that is not always the case). It is just a bit 'dented' as is more often the case. Simply a very nice example of a desirable and/or rarely seen LW 'pilots'-personal-equipment-item that is nicely preserved and ideally fitted to store any 'Flieger-Splitterschutzbrille': IMO did I price this neat spare-part accordingly!
Attractive - and/or heavy silvered ie. 'Alpacca'-marked! - WH (Luftwaffe)-related 'souvenir' cigarette-etui, bearing a period engraved text on the inside that reads: 'Dem lb. Franz Heinz v. seinem Staffelkameraden Herbert Lwowski Wein 1935-36' This is a truly attractive - and/or heavy silvered ie. neatly 'Alpacca'-marked! - WH (Luftwaffe)-related 'souvenir' cigarette-etui, bearing a period engraved text on the inside that reads: 'Dem lb. Franz Heinz v. seinem Staffelkameraden Herbert Lwowski Wein 1935-36', in overall very nice (albeit clearly used- ie. worn-) condition. The neat etui - which measures approximately 9,5 x 8 cms. - furthermore shows the personalised engraved initials on its front (that reads: 'HLo' or alike - see pictures). The piece is as stated neatly 'Alpacca'-marked on the tiny closing-device (this is, however, present but not that easily to read without a magnifying-glass). The piece was clearly presented as a Christmas-present and its 'Luftwaffe-relation' can easily be deducted from the used wording 'Staffelkameraden' in the engraved text. The piece originates from a German private household and was never before in collectors-hands. Simply a very attractive and/or 'one-of-a-kind' item that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and/or matching - pair of later-war period, WH (Heeres) so-called: 'M44'-style, 'simplified'-, enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for a: 'Soldat eines Panzer-Grenadiere-Regiments' The neat straps - which are approximately 11 cms. sized in length each as more often encountered - have the 'standard-type'- and/or: typical brownish-like-, field-grey green- (ie. 'wiesengrüner'-) coloured and/or 'silk-like'-type branchcolour ie. piping attached. The straps are constructed following the typical '1944 cloth-minimising production-manner', using different shades of wool and/or lesser quality material. The straps were clearly used and/or worn and do show some obvious wear, staining and/or age as to be expected. The pair was with certainty worn together and originated from a private household in Germany: both straps are truly matching in all detail (something that is not always observed with these later-war-type shoulderstraps). It should be noted that all 'M44'-style, enlisted-mens'-type straps are actually quite hard to encounter and can easily be graded 'scarce': the ones as intended for the soldiers who served within the 'Panzer-Grenadiere-Truppen' even more so! Simply a superb occasion to acquire a very attractive and fully 'text-book', M44-styled, enlisted-mens'-type pair as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat eines Panzer-Grenadiere-Regiments': great to complete any late-war M43- or: M44-model- tunic. Hard to upgrade this attractive pair!

Attractive - and/or matching! - pair of IMO early- ie. pre-war period- ie. 'M36'-pattern-, rounded-styled-, 'cyphered', WH (Heeres), EM-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for a: 'Soldat u. Unteroffiziers-Anwärter des Infanterie-Regiments 115' This is an attractive - and as such not that easily encountered! - fully matching pair of (IMO) early- (ie. pre-war-) period- ie. 'M36'-pattern (rounded-style-), WH (Heeres) ie. 'Infanterie'-related-, enlisted-mens'-type-, 'cyphered' shoulderstraps, as was piped in the neat white- (ie.

Unteroffiziers-Anwärter des Infanterie-Regiments 115' (or: simple soldier and/or junior-sergeant-candidate who served within the infantry unit ie. regiment, numbered: '115'), in overall nice, albeit moderately used- and/or worn-, condition. The neat shoulderstraps - which each measure approximately 10,2 cms. in length - come without tongues and were with certainty worn as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type (see pictures). The pair was IMO clearly- ie. moderately used ie. worn and was IMO clearly 'cut-off a tunic': the set comes as found and/or stored for decades and is a bit dirty and/or stained and shows the obvious signs of having been moderately worn. The neat shoulderstraps - which show the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured and/or woolen-type piping - have a horizontally mounted- and/or silverish-coloured stripe of NCO-braid (firmly) attached denoting that the soldier who wore this strap held the rank of: 'Unteroffiziers-Anwärter'. Of additional interest is naturally the fact that this pair shows the so-called: '115'-'cyphers' ie. numerals (as executed in detailed so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei' - see pictures). I deem that it was a typical pair that was to be used on a dress- ie. going-out-tunic (or: 'Waffenrock'). In any case is this an attractive pair of early- (ie. pre-) war-period so-called: 'M36-pattern'- and/or: neatly 'cyphered' shoulderstraps as were intended for - and worn by! - a: 'Soldat u. Unteroffiziers-Anwärter des Infanterie-Regiments 115': I deem that I have priced this attractive pair accordingly!
Attractive - and/or matching! - pair of IMO early-war-period-, so-called: 'M36'-pattern-, WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstraps that comes with its attached 'Übershube'-pair, as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel des (schw.) Artillerie-Abteilungs 647' The attractive - and fully 'text-book' and/or matching! - shoulderstrap-pair is piped in the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour and measures approximately 11,5 cms. in length. The straps have the desirable bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured- and/or: woolen-type-piping attached (as is more often encountered with these early- ie. pre-war-period- and/or rounded-styled- shoulderstrap-pairs) and were intended for usage by an NCO who served within the: '(schwere) Artillerie-Abteilungs 647' (or heavy artillery unit numbered: '647' something that can naturally easily be deducted from the attached 'Übershube'-pair). The shoulderstraps - which originate from a larger cloth- ie. shoulderstrap-collection I recenly acquired - are fully 'text-book' examples having the field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks': they are IMO only moderately used ie. worn and do show some moderate wear, age and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The straps were (IMO) clearly 'cut-of a tunic' and come without tongues attached: they have the neat 'standard'-type- and/or fairly shiny, silver-coloured- and/or 'standard-pattern', so-called: 'Heeres'-type NCO-braid and two (regular-sized- and aluminium-based-) pips attached, denoting the NCOs'-rank of: 'Feldwebel' (or: sergeant). The pair came with a (matching) pair of (field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based-) so-called: slip-ons (ie. 'Übershuben') attached bearing both the signification: '647' (as executed in equally bright-red-coloured so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei' done in wool as can be seen on the pictures). Both 'Übershuben' are in a wonderful- and/or totally undamaged condition - see pictures. Simply an attractive NCO-pair that belonged to an: 'Feldwebel des (schwere) Artillerie-Abteilungs 647'!
Attractive - and/or matching! - pair of later-war period, so-called: 'M44/45'-pattern simplified WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens' type shoulderstraps, as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs-Truppen' This is a truly attractive - and/or matching and with certainty not that often encountered! - pair of later-war-period-, so-called: 'M44/45'-pattern simplified (and/or crudely executed) WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens' type shoulderstraps, as was piped in the golden-yellow- (ie. goldgelbener-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs-Truppen' (or: simple cavalry- or reconnaisance soldier), in overall very nice (IMO virtually mint-/unissued-) condition. The shoulderstraps measure approximately 10,6 cms. in length as more often encountered and have the neat 'silk-like'-type piping attached. The pair shows hardly any wear and is in a great condition overall. Of interest is, moreover, the fact that the straps come mounted on the (typical) simplified tongues (which are constructed of pieces of greyish-green-coloured braid - see pictures). Simply an attractive pair of later-war period, so-called: 'M44/45'-pattern simplified WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens' type shoulderstraps, as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs-Truppen'!
Attractive - and/or matching! - pair of Waffen-SS, enlisted-mens'-type shoulder- straps, as was piped in the light-blue-coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by a soldier who served within the: 'Waffen-SS Nachschub-Truppen' Both shoulderstraps have the typical Waffen-SS-pattern and/or: smaller-shaped tongues as only observed on genuine Waffen-SS-pattern straps and have the neat light-blue- (ie. 'hellblauer'-) coloured branchcolour and/or 'silk-like'-type branchcolour ie. piping attached: the set is fully 'text-book' in all facets and is truly hard to be upgraded. The shoulderstraps - which are both 11 cms. sized in length as more often encountered - show the (typical) 'Waffen-SS'-styled-, field-grey-coloured- and/or: woolen-based 'underlays' (see pictures). The pair shows some minimal age and/or staining and or slight fading, simply caused by minimal wear and/or age. In any case is this a fully garuanteed, original Waffen-SS shoulderstrap-set, in only moderately used ie. worn condition and that is IMO consequently priced. The pair shows almost no wear nor damage and is as stated only slightly used ie. worn. It should be noted that these original, period- Waffen-SS shoulderstrap-pairs can easily be graded 'scarce': even if they are piped in the more commonly encounterd, light-blue-coloured- (ie. 'SS-Nachshub-Truppen'- or SS transport-troops-related-) branchcolour!
Attractive - and/or matching! - pair of Waffen-SS, enlisted-mens'-type shoulder- straps, as was piped in the light-blue-coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by a soldier who served within the: 'Waffen-SS Nachschub-Truppen' Both shoulderstraps have the typical Waffen-SS-pattern and/or: small-shaped tongues as only observed on genuine Waffen-SS-pattern straps and have the neat light-blue- (ie. 'hellblauer'-) coloured branchcolour and/or 'silk-like'-type branchcolour ie. piping attached: the set is fully 'text-book' in all facets and is truly hard to be upgraded. The shoulderstraps - which are both 11 cms. sized in length as more often encountered - show the (typical) 'Waffen-SS'-styled-, field-grey-coloured- and/or: woolen-based 'underlays' (see pictures). The pair shows some minimal age and/or staining and or slight fading, simply caused by minimal wear and/or age (one of the straps is a tiny bit faded). In any case is this a fully garuanteed, original Waffen-SS shoulderstrap-set, in only moderately used ie. worn condition and that is IMO consequently priced. The pair shows almost no wear nor damage and is as stated only slightly used ie. worn. It should be noted that these original, period- Waffen-SS shoulderstrap-pairs can easily be graded 'scarce': even if they are piped in the more commonly encounterd, light-blue-coloured- (ie. 'SS-Nachshub-Truppen'- or SS transport-troops-related-) branchcolour!
Attractive - and/or matching! - pair of WH (Kriegsmarine) 'cyphered', officers'-type shoulderboards (that come on an unusual 'Auf der Steg'-mounting) as was intended for usage by a: 'Leutnant eines Küstenartillerie-Abteilungs' The neat set was with certainty always together and was recently found as such at a private household in Germany. The shoulderboards - which are constructed from the darker-green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured and/or: 'smooth-type' (ie. moleskin-like-) wool - are in an excellent condition overall and are hard to be upgraded. The set shows silver-greyish-coloured 'upperdecks' and was presumably a pair that was intended for usage on a (white- ie. field-grey-coloured-) summer-tunic. The boards are just a tiny bit 'tarnished' by normal age and/or moderate wear. The boards - which measure approximately 12 cms. in length each - show non-identical (and as per regulation golden-toned-) so-called: 'winged-shell'-'cyphers' attached: both devices retain most of their period-applied golden-toned finish (but show some tarnish ie. age-patina). Next to this the boards came with their (golden-toned-) screw-on-buttons (ie. 'Schraubknöpfe') attached (see pictures). The boards never had any tongues and come as stated above mounted on the unusually seen 'Auf der Steg'-mounting (see pictures): they show some normal discoloration and/or moderate wear (no real damage nor mothing or alike is present). This interesting shoulderboard-pair was as stated recently found at a private household in Germany and was never before in a collection: it belonged to a: 'Leutnant eines Küstenartillerie-Abteilungs' who IMO most certainly wore and afterwards stored this set for decades. It should be noted that ALL officers'-pattern so-called: 'Küsten-Artillerie' insignia-pieces are hard to encounter: those 'cyphered' ones even more so, which grades them easily as: 'scarce'. Simply a neat, untouched, naval-related officers'-type shoulderboard-pair that belonged to a: 'Leutnant eines Küstenartillerie-Abteilungs'!
Attractive - and/or matching! - pair of: 'M36-pattern'- (and/or: 'pointed-styled'-) WH (Heeres), NCO-type- and/or: 'cyphered' shoulderstraps, as was intended for - and/or worn by! - an: 'Uffz. des Art.-Rgts. 24' (unusually showing later-added piping!) This is an attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of IMO early-war-period- (ie. 'M36-pattern'-type- and/or: 'pointed-styled'-), WH (Heeres), NCO-type and/or neatly 'cyphered' shoulderstraps, being of the generic- ie. originally non-piped pattern, as were intended for - and with certainty worn by! - an: 'Unteroffizier des Artillerie-Regiments 24' (or junior sergeant who served within the artillery-regiment numbered: '24'), that comes in an overall very nice (albeit moderately used and/or worn-), condition. The neat shoulder- straps - which measure approximately 11,2 cms. in length each - both have the darker-green-coloured and/or (smooth-) woolen-based, 'upperdecks' and show - as stated above - later- albeit period-added bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured- and/or silk-like-type 'piping' attached (something that is truly unusually seen!). The straps show, moreover, the neatly embroidered- and/or woolen-based: '24'-cyphers (which are embroidered in so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei' as to be expected) denoting that it was a pair that was worn by an NCO who served within the artillery-regiment, numbered: '24'. The pair shows the 'standard-pattern'-, silver-coloured NCO-braid attached (denoting the NCO's-rank of: 'Unteroffizier'.) The set comes mounted on its functional tongues and was IMO only minimally used- ie. worn: it comes as found and/or stored for decades and is a bit dirty and/or stained and shows the minimal signs of having been worn. The pair was without doubt worn as such as a pair. Simply an attractive - and with certainty desirable! - pair of IMO early-war-period produced- and/or neatly 'cyphered', artillery NCO-pattern shoulderstraps as was intended for - and worn by! - an: 'Unteroffizier des Artillerie-Regiments 24': great to be stored in any shoulderstrap-collection or ideally fitted to complete any mid-war- (or early-) pattern 'Heeres' tunic!
Attractive - and/or possibly unique! - example of an: 'Ehrenkreuz der deutschen Mutter - erste Stufe' (or: mothers'-cross in gold), that was (professionally- and/or period-) mounted on a pin-/catch-set-up as recently found This is a truly attractive - and never before encountered and/or possibly unique! - example of an: 'Ehrenkreuz der deutschen Mutter - erste Stufe' (or: mothers'-cross in gold), that was (professionally- and/or period-) mounted on a pin-/catch-set-up as recently found, in overall very nice (albeit IMO used and/or issued-) condition. The medal has truly no enamel damage whatsoever and is in a very nice and/or totally uncleaned condition. The golden finish is simply excellent and the medal has a very nice age and/or truly bright age-patina. Simply a very attractive - and with certaity unusually encountered! - golden-class 'MK' without any defaults: I am convinced that this particular example will most certainly atttract the MK-collectors!
Attractive - and/or rarely encountered! - WH (Heeres) officers'-type (ie. 'M43-type-'), 'trapezoid' cap-eagle/cocarde, woven on darker-green coloured linnen and executed in so-called: 'flat-wire'-style-, 'BeVo'-weave pattern - overall nice condition! This is a truly very attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - example of a WH (Heeres) officers'-type (ie. 'M43-type-'), 'trapezoid' cap-eagle/cocarde, as woven on a darker-green coloured and/or linnen-based background and executed in so-called: 'flat-wire'-style-, 'BeVo'-weave pattern, in overall very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued-) condition. The trapezoid was never trimmed nor 'pre-folded' and comes as straightly cut of the role: it was never cap-attached. It is just somewhat wrinkled from years of storage and shows some minimal staining caused by decades of storage only. This eagle - which is as stated above a truly rarely seen example - is one of the more difficult 'Heeres' officers'-type trapezoid-shaped cap-eagles to encounter. Simply a very attractive cap-eagle which is very hard too find if needed: great to restore any M43-officers'-type cap or to be stored in any eagles'-collection!
Attractive - and/or truly almost matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-war-) period, 'M36'-pattern- (ie. pointed-styled) 'cyphered' shoulderstraps, as was intended for a: 'Soldat des Artillerie-Beobachtungs-Abteilungs 20' This is truly attractive - and actually rarely encountered and/or almost matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-war-) period-, so-called: 'M36'-pattern- (ie. pointed-styled) 'cyphered' and/or non-piped shoulderstraps, as was intended for a: 'Soldat des Artillerie-Beobachtungs-Abteilungs 20' (or simple soldier who served within the artillery-observers regiment ie. unit, numbered '20'), in overall very nice- (albeit IMO minimally used ie. worn-) condition. The straps - which are both approximately 12 cms. sized in length - have the 'standard-type' and/or darker-green-coloured, smooth-woolen-based 'upper-decks' and have (of course) no piping (as per regulation). Both shoulderstraps show the neat (machine-embroidered by means of so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei'-) Gothic-styled-, so-called: 'B'-cyphers and/or: '20' numerals. Both 'cyphers' are executed in the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured wool ie. linnen as to be expected (see pictures). The straps - which come mounted on their functional tongues show as stated truly minimal usage and/or wear (some minor staining and/or dust is however visible and/or present). The pair was with certainly always together and was worn as such as a pair (this although the fact that both pieces are not completely matching). It should, however, be noted that all 'cyphered' so-called: 'Beobachtungs-Abteilungen'-shoulderstraps are very desirable and can easily be regarded 'rare', even more when they are in such a nicely preserved condition. In any case a very attractive (and truly rarely encountered!) early- ie. pre-war-period, 'cyphered Heeres' shoulderstrap-pair which is IMO priced according to its obvious desirability and/or unmistaken rarity!
Attractive - and/or truly detailed! - 'hollow-back'-pattern 'Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen in Silber', being a non-maker-marked example by the: 'O. Schickle'-company as executed in silverish-coloured metal (ie. 'Buntmetall') This is an attractive - and actually truly detailed! - example of an: 'Infanterie-Sturm- Abzeichen in Silber' (or silver infantry assault badge ie. IAB), being a non-maker-marked example by the: 'O. Schickle'-company as was executed in silverish-coloured metal (ie. 'Buntmetall'), that comes in an overall nice (albeit used and/or moderately worn-) condition. This example is as stated above a non-maker-marked example (as always) and has a 'typical' catch and/or hinge set-up as to be expected for IABs by this maker. The badge seems IMO to be totally uncleaned and has an attractive, typical silver-greyish-coloured age-patina: a fair bit of its original silver-finish has been preserved (as is not always the case). The pin and/or catch (ie. set-up-) are of course fully functional and/or present. The piece - which originates from a private household and that was never before part of any collection - shows some moderate wear and/or staining was most certainly never cleaned. Simply a nice and honest silver-class- and/or: 'Buntmetall'-based example by the desirable maker: 'Otto Schickle' that is IMO accordingly priced!

Attractive - and/or truly detailed! - 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber' (or silver infantry assault badge ie. IAB), being an unmarked 'hollow-back'-example as executed in zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink') by the 'W. Deumer'-company This is an attractive - and actually very detailed and not that easily encountered! - 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber' (or silver infantry assault badge ie. IAB), being an unmarked 'hollow-back'-example as was executed in zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink') by the 'W. Deumer'-company, in overall nice albeit moderately used and/or worn condition. This example is a non maker-marked award: it has a 'typical' catch and/or hinge set-up (which takes the format of a square- ie. rectangular shaped and/or soldered 'plate' (as is more often seen on IABs by the Wilhelm Deumer-company). I deem that this example can thus be attributed to the maker: 'Wilhelm Deumer'. The badge seems IMO to be totally uncleaned and has a still an attractive and/or truly silver-coloured age-patina: most of its period-applied silver finish has been nicely preserved. 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 wear and/or staining and was IMO never cleaned. Simply a nice and honest silver-toned, 'hollow-back' and/or 'Feinzink'-based example by the: 'Wilhelm Deumer'-company that IMO is accordingly priced!
Attractive - and/or: fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) 'cyphered', officers'-type shoulderboards, as was intended for an: 'Oberst des Nachrichten-Regiments 7' This is an attractive - and/or: fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) 'cyphered', officers'-type shoulderboards, as piped in the neat bright-yellow- (ie. 'zitronengelber'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or: clearly used by! - an: 'Oberst des Nachrichten-Regiments 7' (or: full colonel who served in- ie. even commanded the army-signals' regiment, numbered: '7'), in overall very nice- (albeit clearly used ie. tunic-removed- and/or: 'cut-off'-) condition. The boards - which are executed in the 'smooth'-like- and/or: bright-yellow-coloured wool (aka: 'moleskin') - measure approximately 10 cms. in length and have fairly 'sub-dued'- ie. silver-grey-coloured 'upperdecks' (that shows clear age and/or wear). The pair never had any tongues attached and was clearly used as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type. The boards show two neatly golden-toned- pips each and/or: shows the numerals: '7' period-attached: all four devices are minimally tarnished and/or stained but are still very nice and/or pronounced. This particular shoulderboard-pair originated from a large cloth-/shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. Simply an attractive - and actually not that often encountered! - officers'-type, 'cyphered' shoulderboard-pair as was intended for usage by an: an: 'Oberst des Nachrichten-Regiments 7'!
Attractive - early- ie. pre-war-period, albeit regrettably single - WH (Heeres) black-coloured- and/or woolen-based- and/or pink-piped so-called: 'Panzer'-collar-tab, having an aluminium-based 'Totenkopf' (ie. skull) period-attached The piece - which was used on amongst others the black-coloured, so-called: 'wrap-around' Panzer-tunics - has a 'standard-pattern'-, brownish-coloured- (and/or: 'Buckram'-based-) backing as more often encountered does show some regular age, wear and/or minimal staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece - which has the woolen-type- and/or: bright pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured piping and is IMO of a fairly early- (ie. early-) war-period type collar-tab - has clearly been used and/or IMO uniform-removed (some stitching-holes and/or minimal thread-remains are still visible and/or present). The neat aluminium-based skull retains both its prongs (and is still firmly period-attached - see pictures). This particular example originates from a private household and was never before in collectors-hands. These genuine- and/or early-war-period- 'Panzer'-type collar-insignia can easily be graded 'fairly scarce': too bad that it is only a single example!
Attractive - early-period- albeit non-marked - example of an: Iron Cross 1st class (or: 'Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse') being a non-magnetic example a having a not that often seen 'copper-based core' The attractive cross - which is a non-vaulted ie. non-converse-shaped example as more often seen - retains an attractive age-patina and/or nice, pronounced detail. This example - which has a not that often seen 'copper-based core' - comes naturally mounted on its original- (and naturally fully functional-) regular-shaped pin- and/or typical catch-set-up. The cross shows a neatly 'blackened' and/or fairly 'satin-like'- ie. 'matted' inner-core that shows a freed swastika-area (the swastika is totally void of colour, something that was most certainly period-done by the awardee ie. recipient). The piece has also lost all of its off-factory applied so-called: 'hochpolierte Kanten' (or polished sides) and is quite dirty and tarnished simply caused by years of storage and/or moderate wear but retains a great unmessed-with and/or uncleaned, age-patina (as can be seen on the pictures). The cross originates from a private household in Germany and was never before in collectors'-hands: I am convinced that it can be attributed to a maker if deemed of interest. I deem that I have priced this attractive - and with certainty early-war-period! - example accordingly!
Attractive - fully matching and actually rarely encountered! - WH (Heeres) pair of neatly 'cyphered'- and bright-orange-piped, shoulderboards, as was intended for an: 'Oberstleutnant u. Waffenoffizier' This is a truly attractive - and/or fully matching and/or actually rarely encountered! - pair of WH (Heeres) neatly 'cyphered' shoulderboards, as was piped in the neat orange-red- (ie. 'orangeroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by an: 'Oberst- leutnant u. Waffenoffizier' (or: lieutnant-colonel and/or member ie. possibly even commander (!) within one of the army weapon-schools), that come in an overall very nice- (and/or clearly used- ie. worn- and/or carefully tunic-removed-), condition. The attractive shoulderboards - which are regular-sized and do measure approximately: 11,2 cms. in length each - are piped in the neat orange- (ie. 'orangeroter'-) coloured and have greyish-silver-coloured- (ie. fairly sub-dued-) 'upperdecks' (as can be seen on the pictures). The boards show the neat bright-golden-coloured-, IMO 'Buntmetall'-based- so-called: 'canon'-'cyphers' attached (denoting the officers' status of: 'Oberstleutnant u. Waffenoffizier'). The pair - which never had any tongues attached and that was worn as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type - shows moderate age and is a tiny bit stained ie. dirty (IMO caused by having been worn and/or stored as such for decades). Simply a very attractive - and/or fully matching! - shoulderboard-pair that belonged to an: 'Oberstleutnant u. Waffenoffizier': ideal to store in any shoulderboard-collection. I deem that this attractive and/or neatly 'cyphered' and/or high-ranked shoulderboard-pair is accordingly priced!
Attractive - fully matching and/or scarcely encountered! - pair of WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboards, as was intended for a higher-ranked-, administrative-official having the rank of: 'Major' (ie.: 'Beambter a.K. des höheren Dienstes') The attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - neatly 'cyphered' shoulderboard-pair - which was intended for usage by a higher-ranked officer having the comparable rank of: 'Major' (ie.: 'Beambter a.K. des höheren Dienstes') is constructed from the specific, greenish-coloured- and/or: smooth-like- (ie. moleskin-type-) wool having the bright-blue-coloured secondary branchcolour (ie. 'Zwischenfarbe') denoting the officers' specific function- and/or tasking. The boards have, moreover, the (typical-) grey-silver-coloured- (and twisted) upperdecks showing darker-green-coloured 'centre-stripes' as per regulation. The boards come without tongues attached (they were IMO certainly used as such and were carefully tunic-removed - see pictures). The boards show an identical- and neatly golden-toned pair of so-called: 'HV'-cyphers period-attached (both of which are somewhat tarnished but have nevertheless remained most of their golden-toned finish - as can be noticed on the pictures). The shoulderboard-pair was never before in a collection and does show some minimal age, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). It should be noted that these Heeres-related-, officers'-type shoulderboards as were intended for: 'Beambter a.K. des höheren Dienstes' can easily be graded: 'fairly scarce'. Only the first such neat pair having this rank ie. function I did ever had on offer!
Attractive - fully matching and/or scarcely encountered! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe) NCO-type shoulderboards, as was intended for a medium-ranked-, administrative-official (ie. NCO) having the rank of: 'Oberfeldwebel' (ie.: 'Beambter des mittleren Dienstes') The attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - shoulderboard-pair - which was intended for usage by a medium-ranked NCO having the comparable rank of: 'Oberfeldwebel' (or: sergeant first-class) - is constructed from the specific, greenish-coloured- and/or: smooth-like- (ie. moleskin-type-) wool and does have the (typical-) bluish-grey- and/or: silver-coloured (twisted) upperdecks as per regulation (see pictures). The boards – which can easily be graded virtually mint- ie. unissued! - have four (identical- and or zinc-based-) pips period attached denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Beambter des mittleren Dienstes im Oberfeldwebels-rang'. The boards also show the bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured 'Zwischenfarbe' (or: secondary branchcolour) attached, denoting the soldiers- ie. NCOs specific function- and/or tasking. The boards came mounted on their functional (small-sized-) tongues attached and were simply never worn and came still tied together (see pictures). The shoulderboard-pair originated from the left-overs of a stock of an old tailor-shop in Germany and was never before in a collection: the boards were simply never worn nor used (they do show some truly minimal age and/or staining caused by decades of storage only, as can be seen on the pictures). It should be noted that these Luftwaffe-related-, NCO-type shoulderboards as were intended for medium-ranked administrative-officials ie. 'Beambter des mittleren Dienstes im Oberfeldwebelsrang' can easily be graded: 'fairly scarce'. Only the first such neat pair having the bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured secondary branchcolour I did ever had on offer!
Attractive - fully matching and/or scarcely encountered! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe) NCO-type shoulderboards, as was intended for a medium-ranked-, administrative-official (ie. NCO) having the rank of: 'Oberfeldwebel' (ie.: 'Beambter des mittleren Dienstes') The attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - shoulderboard-pair - which was intended for usage by a medium-ranked NCO having the comparable rank of: 'Oberfeldwebel' (or: sergeant first-class) - is constructed from the specific, greenish-coloured- and/or: smooth-like- (ie. moleskin-type-) wool and does have the (typical-) bluish-grey- and/or: silver-coloured (twisted) upperdecks as per regulation (see pictures). The boards - which were IMO hardly used nor worn - have four (identical- and/or: zinc-based-) pips period-attached denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Beambter des mittleren Dienstes im Oberfeldwebels-rang'. The boards also show the bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured 'Zwischenfarbe' (or: secondary-branchcolour) attached, denoting the soldiers- ie. NCOs specific function- and/or tasking. The boards come without tongues attached (they might have been removed) and were with certainty worn ie. once tunic-attached (see pictures). The shoulderboard-pair was never before in a collection and do show some age, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). It should be noted that these Luftwaffe-related-, NCO-type shoulderboards as were intended for medium-ranked administrative-officials ie. 'Beambter des mittleren Dienstes im Oberfeldwebelsrang' can easily be graded: 'fairly scarce'. Only the second such neat pair having the bright-pink- (ie.

The boards came mounted on their functional (small-sized-) tongues attached and were with certainty worn as such (see pictures). The shoulderboard-pair originated from a German private household and was never before in a collection: the boards were (IMO) minimally worn (ie. IMO tunic-removed-) and do show some truly minimal age, wear and/or staining as to be expected (one of the boards shows some minimal moth-damage on its back, but nothing shocking as can be seen on the pictures).

Attractive - neatly enamelled- and not that easily encountered! - so-called: 'N.S.D.A.P.'-supportive lapel-pin-/ie. party badge, being an example without text (that is void of a makers'- nor 'RzM'-signification) The attractive lapel-pin - which has been IMO only minimally 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 (see pictures): just some regular wear ie. scratches are noticable. The badge - which has an approximate diameter of 2 cms. and that is thus smaller that its regular-sized counterparts - shows moreover a somewhat tarnished finish as can be seen from the pictures. This example - which has a bright-red coloured ie. enamelled area without showing any text - comes mounted on its functional- (ie. regular) pin-/catch set-up (which is naturally still fully functional and/or present). Simply an attractive, 'N.S.D.A.P.'-supportive lapel-pin-/ie. party badge that is IMO accordingly priced!

Attractive -WHW- (ie. 'Winterhilfswerke'-) related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie'), as was issued to commemorate the: 'WHW-Tag - Dem unbekannten Helfer - Gau Süd-Hannover - Braunschweig - 31.3.1935' - nice condition! This is a truly attractive - and actually not that easily ie. scarcely encountered! - WHW- (ie. 'Winterhilfswerke'-) related 'tinnie', that was issued to commemorate a specific WHW-rally ie. gathering named the: 'WHW-Tag - Dem unbekannten Helfer - Gau Süd-Hannover - Braunschweig - 31.3.1935', in overall very nice (albeit issued ie. moderately worn-) condition. The very detailed and/or pronounced badge - which is executed in golden-bronze-toned metal (ie. copper-toned zinc ie. 'tin') and shows extraordinary detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished. The piece shows an eagle-device within its middle the a.m. text. The badge - which is void of a maker-mark - comes naturally mounted on its (functional) pin-/catch set-up. Simply a nice - and most certainly not that often encountered!- WHW-related 'tinnie'!
Attractive and neatly hand-embroidered, WH (Luftwaffe) officers'-type visor-cap eagle (ie. 'Adler für Offiziers-Schirmmütze') The piece is nicely hand-embroidered using various kinds of silver-coloured 'braid' on a greyish-blue-coloured (and/or: woolen-based-) background and has an approximate 'wing-span' of 6 cms. as is more often encountered. The piece was clearly once cap-attached and was carefully cap-removed: it does show some age- and/or wear but is totally void of any corrosion or other damage (see pictures). It was neatly hand-embroidered using silver-coloured braid (showing some high-lighted areas done in light-green-coloured thread). The eagle is nicely backed with (black-coloured- and/or paper-based-) material as is more often seen (see pictures). Simply a nice - and actually not that easily encountered - LW-item that can naturally be (re-) attached to any 'Luftwaffe' officers' (visor-) cap or to be kept in any eagles'- ie. insignia-collection!

Attractive example of a 'BDM' (ie.: 'Bund Deutscher Mädel') district-triangle entitled: 'Süd Schwaben', still retaining its period-attached 'RzM'-etiket This is a very attractive example of a so-called: 'HJ/BDM' (or: 'Hitler Jugend'/'Bund Deutscher Mädel') district-triangle entitled: 'Süd Schwaben', still retaining its period-attached 'RzM'-etiket, in overall very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued- and/or never worn nor used-) condition. As stated is the triangle in a wonderfull condition overall and simply shows no wear nor age whatsoever. This is a 'female' specimen, woven in white-coloured linnen on a black-coloured- (and also linnen-based-) background. The piece still retains its period-attached 'RzM'-etiket and cannot be upgraded. Simply a very nice female youth-triangle: hard to find a nicer ie. cleaner example for a better price!
Attractive example of a 'BeVo'-type armshield entitled: 'Idel-Ural', as was intended for a volunteer who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' (ie. within the 'Volga-Tartar Legion') This is a truly attractive example of the colourfull, 'BeVo'-type armshield entitled: 'Idel-Ural', as was intended for the Russian volunteers who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' (ie. within the 'Volga-Tartar Legion'), being an example that comes in an overall very nice (ie. virtually mint- ie. unissued-), condition. The shield comes in an absolute mint, unissued condition and simply cannot be upgraded. These - original - 'officially' German produced arm-shields as executed in the 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo'-) are considered scarce. The piece shows a neat interwoven 'BeVo-Wuppertal' producers-mark on the bottom as is sometimes encountered (see pictures). The piece is void of any staining nor damage and comes as 'straightly cut-of the role'. This is one of the more scarcer examples of the colourfull series. Simply an attractive piece of German-made cloth insignia that IMO is accordingly priced!

Attractive example of a - IMO mid- ie. later-war period - WH (Heeres) 'tropical-issue' and/or entirely: 'web-based' belt, being a neat example that is 95 cms. sized that comes together with its field-grey coloured belt-buckle This is a truly attractive example of a - IMO mid- ie. later-war period - WH (Heeres) tropical-issue- and/or entirely 'web-based' belt, as was executed in greenish-coloured and/or (fairly crudely-) woven linnen (ie. webbing) and have a webbing-based tongue, being a neat example that is approximately 85 cms. sized and that comes together with its field-grey-coloured buckle, in overall very nice (ie. IMO minimally used- ie. worn-) condition. The belt is not maker-marked nor stamped (something that is not unusual) but does show a dark-blue-coloured ink-stamp under the tongue denoting its size (that reads '95' cms.). The belts' tongue is as stated also fabricated in typical, green-coloured webbing (see pictures) something that is in itself desirable. The piece is IMO mininally used and its overall condition is thus very nice and of course fully functional. The metal catch is still greenish-/field-grey coloured and retains most (ie. all-) of its green-coloured finish. The belt came with a field-grey-coloured-, WH (Heeres) buckle which is an unmarked example that truly retains most of its period applied finish. The buckle was, however, IMO equally used (as the belt) and shows some mininal age, wear and/or staining (especially on its back where it does show some rust-staining). Hard to find a more nicely preserved and/or attractive WH (Heeres) 'tropical-issue' belt-and-buckle set!
Attractive example of a - rarely encountered! - WH (Luftwaffe) 'Gemeinsames Flugzeugführer- u. Beobachterabzeichen in Stoff' - overall nice (albeit clearly used ie. tunic-removed-) condition! This is a truly very nice example of an - actually rarely encountered! - WH (Luftwaffe) 'Gemeinsames Flugzeugführer- u. Beobachterabzeichen in Stoff' (aka: 'Doppelabzeichen' or combined pilots- ie. observers-badge in cloth), in overall nice (albeit clearly used ie. tunic-removed-) condition. The multi-coloured badge shows a golden-yellow coloured wreath as to be expected and was most certainly worn and carefully tunic-removed (the stitching-remains- and/or some minimal fraying on the sides are still present and visible - see pictures). This example - which shows some obvious wear, age and/or minimal staining - would most certainly look very nice if (re-) mounted on a 'LW Fliegerbluse' and is a sound (and much cheaper!) alternative for its metal counterparts. Simply a very nice example of a 'Gemeinsames Flugzeugführer- u. Beobachterabzeichen in Stoff'!
Attractive example of a 3-pieced WWI-period medal-bar (ie. 'Spange'), showing resp. a WWI-period: 'EK II. Kl.', a rarely seen 'Silb. Verdienstmedaille mit Schw. des Fürstentum Waldeck Pyrmont' and a: 'FKK m. Schw.' This is a truly very nice - and with certainty decorative! - example of a 3-pieced WWI-period medal-bar (ie. 'Spange'), showing respectively a WWI-period: 'Eisernes Kreuz der II. Klasse' (or: iron cross second class), a rarely seen so-called: 'Silberne Verdienst- medaille mit Schwertern des Fürstentum Waldeck Pyrmont' (or: silver-class military service-medal with swords) and a: 'Frontkämpferkreuz mit Schwerter' that comes with its matching 'Band-/Feldspange' as recently found, all pieces in overall very nice- (and IMO only moderately worn-), condition. All three medals ie. awards are attractive, decent examples and seem to have never been cleaned nor polished: all three come in an equally tarnished- ie. dusty condition and also come on their period-mounted ribbons as issued and/or worn. Moreover, does the ribbon of the 'Silberne Verdienstmedaille' show a period-attached sword-device as to be expected. The (unmarked) 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' is a truly nicely preserved example that shows a fully preserved- and/or somewhat matted and black-coloured 'inner-core' (which is totally undamaged). It is mounted in an (IMO) genuine silver-based frame (which has not been cleaned). The - truly rarely seen! - silver-toned- (ie. genuine silver-based!) so-called: 'Silberne Verdienstmedaille mit Schwertern des Fürstentum Waldeck Pyrmont' (or: silver-class military service-medal with swords) shows on its front the expected characters: 'GV' with above a crown and shows it seperately attached swords (see pictures) and is also in a very nice condition: it also retains all its silver-coloured finish and is very detailed: it is equally tarnished ie. dirty. The 'Frontkämpfer-kreuz' - which is a neatly maker- (ie. 'W.K.'-) marked specimen - still retains most of its bronze-toned finish and comes in a very nice condition overall: just some minimal age ie. tarnish is visible. The 'Spange' comes naturally on its functional pin-/catch set-up and is not 'backed' but comes mounted on its steel-based 'backing-plate' (see pictures). The medal-bar was recently found at a private household and was never before part of any collection. The 'Spange' is most certainly a period-compiled and/or worn piece and is NOT a post-war compilation: it originated from a private household and was kept as such for decades. As stated was the piece found with its accompanying (and matching!) three-pieced 'Band-/Feldspange' (that comes mounted on its functional pin-/catch set-up as can be seen on the pictures). This neat piece also retains its golden-toned swords-devices attached and is minimally stained ie. dirty. Simply a very nice - and decorative! - 3-pieced WWI-period medal-bar- ie. 'Spange' that belonged to a soldier that belonged to the troops of the 'Fürstentum Waldeck Pyrmont' and that is IMO accordingly priced and great to 'present' on any 'Waffenrock' ie. tunic!
Attractive example of a 4-pieced-, WWI-(ie. WWII-) period- medal-bar (ie. 'Spange'), showing resp. a WWI-period: 'EK II. Kl.', a: 'FKK m. Schw.' and two so-called: 'Anschluss'-medals (ie: 'Medaillen zur Erinnerung an den 1. März u. Oktober 1938') The attractive - and with certainty decorative! - 4-pieced example shows respectively a WWI-period: 'Eisernes Kreuz der II. Klasse' (or: iron cross second class), a: 'Front- kämpferkreuz mit Schwerter 1914-18' and both Austrian- (ie. Czech-) 'Anschluss'-medals (or: 'Medaillen zur Erinnerung an den 1. März u. Oktober 1938', as were awarded for the annexation of respectively Austria ie. Czechoslovakia), all four pieces in overall very nice- (and IMO only moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. All four medals ie. awards are attractive, decent examples and seem to have never been cleaned nor polished: all four come in an equally tarnished- ie. dusty condition and come also on their period-mounted ribbons as issued and/or worn. The (unmarked) 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' is a truly nicely preserved example that shows a fully preserved- and/or somewhat 'glossy' and black-coloured 'inner-core' (which is totally undamaged). It is mounted in an (IMO) genuine silver-based frame (which has IMO not been cleaned nor polished). The 'Frontkämpferkreuz' - which is a neatly maker- (ie. 'G.4'-) marked specimen - still retains most (ie. all) of its bronze-toned finish and comes in a very nice condition overall: just some minimal age ie. tarnish is visible. Both Austrian- (ie. Czech-) 'Anschluss'-medals (or: 'Medaillen zur Erinnerung an den 1. März u. Oktober 1938', as were awarded for the annexation of respectively Austria ie. Czechoslovakia) are very attractive examples that retain most (ie. all!) of their silver- ie. golden-bronze-toned finish. Of interest is, moreover, the fact that the 'Spange' is constructed in such manner that the medals can easily be placed- and/or removed (something that is fairly unusual). The 'Spange' comes naturally mounted on its functional pin-/catch set-up and is nicely 'backed' with a piece of darker-green-coloured wool. The medal-bar was recently found at a private household and was never before part of any collection. The 'Spange' is most certainly a period-compiled and/or worn piece and is NOT a post-war compilation: it originated from a private household and was kept as such for decades. Simply an attractive - and decorative! - 4-pieced WWI- (ie. WWII-) period medal-bar- ie. 'Spange' that is IMO accordingly priced and great to 'present' on any 'Waffenrock' ie. tunic!
Attractive example of a black wound-badge (or: 'Verwundeten Abzeichen in Schwarz'), being a neatly maker- (ie. '65'-) marked example by the: 'Klein u. Quenzer'-company This is an attractive - and IMO only minimally worn! - example of a black wound-badge (or: 'Verwundeten Abzeichen in Schwarz'), being a neatly maker- (ie. '65'-) marked example as was produced by the: 'Klein u. Quenzer'-company, in overall nice (and IMO only minimally used- ie. worn-) condition. The neat badge shows only minimal wear ie. age and truly retains all of its original black (and fairly 'matted'-) painted- ie. sprayed surface. The wound-badge is as stated neatly maker-marked with the makers-signification: '65' on the back (see photos), signifying that it was a piece as produced by the: 'Klein u. Quenzer' company, based in the town of Oberstein. Of course, are the (regular- ie. thin-shaped-) pin and/or catch (-set-up) fully functional and of course present. This piece has never been cleaned nor polished: it shows some minimal dirt and dust (mainly on the back). Simply a very nice and desirable, maker-marked black wound-badge by the: 'Klein u. Quenzer'-company!
Attractive example of a black-class and/or early-type black wound badge (ie.: 'Verwundeten Abzeichen in Schwarz'), being an early and/or very detailed so-called: 'Spanish Civil War' version, in overall nice (albeit clearly used ie. worn-) condition This is a truly very nice - albeit moderately used and/or worn - example of a black wound badge (ie. 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Schwarz'), being of the rarely observed - ie. early-period - aka 'Spanish Civil War'- (ie. 'Legion Condor'-) version, in overall nice, albeit clearly used and/or worn-, condition. The (magnetic-) badge - which is an unmarked version as is more often encountered with this type of WBs - shows obvious wear ie. age and has lost a fair bit of its original black-painted colour (showing some areas of its steel-based underlay - see pictures). The badge, which comes on its functional, long-sized- (copper-based-) pin and that has an undamaged and/or functional catch, still retains extraordinary and/or pronounced detail (the swastika is very high- ie. pronounced as to be expected!). I am of the opinion that the piece on offer here is a 100% genuine, period example that was obviously worn a lot: it originates from a private household in Germany. The piece was IMO never recently cleaned nor polished and comes as found. In any case a very nice and original specimen that is priced according to its clearly used ie. moderately worn condition!
Attractive example of a black-class- (and/or early-type!) black wound-badge (ie.: 'Verwundeten Abzeichen in Schwarz'), being a very detailed so-called: 'Spanish Civil War'-version This is a very attractive - albeit minimally used and/or worn - example of a black wound-badge (ie. 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Schwarz'), being of the rarely observed - ie. early-period - aka 'Spanish Civil War'- (ie. 'Legion Condor'-) version, that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit moderately used and/or worn-), condition. The (non-magnetic-) badge - which is an unmarked version as is more often encountered with this type of WBs - shows some regular wear ie. age and retains a neat silverish-coloured age-patina - see pictures). The badge, which comes naturally mounted on its functional, long-sized- (also non-magnetic- and IMO silver-based-) pin and that has an undamaged and/or: functional catch, still retains extraordinary and/or pronounced detail (the swastika is very high- ie. pronounced as to be expected - as can be seen on the pictures). I am of the opinion, that the piece on offer here is a 100% genuine, period-example that was obviously worn: it originates from a private household in Germany and was never before in collectors'-hands. The piece was IMO never recently cleaned nor polished and comes as found. In any case an attractive and original specimen that is IMO priced according to its used ie. minimally worn condition!
Attractive example of a HJ- (ie. 'Hitlerjugend'-) related armband, being of the 'entirely-woven'-type in a technique similar to the 'BeVo'-weave pattern This is an attractive example of a 'standard-type' HJ- (ie. 'Hitlerjugend'-) related armband, being of the 'entirely-woven'-type in a technique similar to the 'BeVo'-weave pattern, in overall very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued-) condition. These linnen-based armbands were 'standard' for usage by the various HJ- (ie. DJ-) members and/or officials (and were worn on the left upper-arm of the linnen shirts and/or tunics). This example - which has been 'off-factory sewn-together - has a total size of approximately 42 cms. and is 11 cms. wide - and is constructed from bright-red-coloured linnen and shows a neatly interwoven and/or square-sized, so-called: 'swastika'-patch and/or horizontally- (and/or interwoven-) 'stripe'. Both stripe and/or patch are executed in a technique similar to the 'BeVo'-weave pattern. The armband was IMO hardly (or not at all) used and is void of an 'RzM'-etiket (I deem it never had one). The armband is just a tiny bit stained and is moroever a tiny bit wrinkled. The piece is very nicely made and shows only moderate age ie. staining (IMO simply caused by decades of storage and/or handling). Simply a very nice and desirable HJ- (ie. DJ-) related item that is IMO almost impossible to be upgraded!
Attractive example of a linnen-based armband, as was intended for usage by the: 'SA-Wehrmannschaften', being a minimally used- ie. worn example that still retains its period-attached 'RzM'-etiket This is an attractive example of a bright-red-coloured- and/or linnen-based armband, as was intended for usage by the members who served within the: 'SA-Wehrmannschaften', in overall very nice (ie. IMO only minimally used- ie. worn-) condition. These decorative armbands - having a 'BeVo'-woven 'centre-roundel' depicting an illustration of a so-called: 'SA-Sportabzeichen' attached - were intended for specific wear on the civilian attire but also do pictures exist were these armbands are worn on the specific brown uniforms of men attached to the: 'SA-Wehrmannschaften'. The piece on offer here still retains its period-attached 'RzM'-etiket and measures (folded) 43 cms. by 11 cms. Simply a neat example of this armband: hard to find a nicer example for a more interesting price!
Attractive example of a period, picture-postcard originating from the famous 'Hoffmann' Knights'-cross bearers- (ie. 'Ritterkreuzträger'-) series, depicting the SA (ie. 'Sturmabteilungen') 'Gruppenführer' Bernhard Hofmann This is an attractive example of a black- and white-, period picture-postcard originating from the famous 'Hoffmann' Knights'-cross bearers- (ie. 'Ritterkreuzträger'-) series, depicting the SA (ie. 'Sturmabteilungen') 'Gruppenführer' Bernhard Hofmann, that comes in an overall very nice (ie. mint-/unissued-), condition. The decorative card - which shows the number 'R152' on its back and which is sized 14 x 9,5 cms. as usual - comes in a mint, unissued condition but originates from an old collection as was period-compiled by a youngster: it is totally void of any writing nor text but does show some minimal wear and/or age. Simply a very nice period 'Ritterkreuzträger' photo-postcard that is impossible to be upgraded!

'Ritterkreuzträger'-) series, depicting the WH (Heeres) 'Feldwebel' Franz Juschkat This is an attractive example of a black- and white-, period picture-postcard originating from the famous 'Hoffmann' Knights'-cross bearers- (ie. 'Ritterkreuzträger'-) series, depicting the (Heeres) 'Feldwebel' Franz Juschkat, that comes in an overall very nice (ie. mint-/unissued-), condition.

'Ritterkreuzträger'-) series, depicting the (Heeres) 'General der Gebirgstruppen' Dietl, that comes in an overall very nice (ie. mint-/unissued-), condition. The decorative card - which shows the number '1190' on its back and which is sized 14 x 9,5 cms. as usual - comes in a mint, unissued condition but originates from an old collection as was period-compiled by a youngster: it is totally void of any writing nor text but does show some minimal wear and/or age.

Attractive example of a silver-class- (and/or early-type!) silver wound-badge (ie.: 'Verwundeten Abzeichen in Silber'), being a very detailed so-called: 'Spanish Civil War'-version This is a very attractive - albeit minimally used and/or worn - example of a silver wound-badge (ie. 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Silber'), being of the rarely observed - ie. early-period - aka 'Spanish Civil War'- (ie. 'Legion Condor'-) version, that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit minimally used and/or worn-), condition. The (non-magnetic- and IMO silver-) badge - which is an unmarked version as is more often encountered with this type of WBs - shows some regular wear ie. age and retains a neat silverish-coloured age-patina - see pictures). The badge, which comes naturally mounted on its functional, long-sized- (also non-magnetic- and IMO silver-based-) pin and that has an undamaged and/or functional catch, still retains extraordinary and/or pronounced detail (the swastika is very high- ie. pronounced as to be expected). I am of the opinion that the piece on offer here is a 100% genuine, period-example that was obviously worn: it originates from a private household in Germany and was never before in collectors'-hands. The piece was IMO never recently cleaned nor polished and comes as found. In any case an attractive and original specimen that is IMO priced according to its used ie. minimally worn condition!
Attractive example of a so-called: 'Einzelspange' (ie. single-pieced medal-bar) showing a: 'Kriegsverdienstmedaille 1939' (or: war-merits-medal), being a neat 'Buntmetall'-based example This is an attractive example of a so-called: 'Einzelspange' (ie. single-pieced medal-bar) showing a mounted specimen of a: 'Kriegsverdienstmedaille 1939' (or: war-merits-medal), that comes in an overall very nice (and IMO only moderately worn ie. issued-), condition. This example came mounted on its original and/or neatly pre-folded- (bright-red ie. black-coloured-) ribbon, which can naturally directly be worn on the (dress-) tunic as such. The medal - which retains truly most of its golden-bronze-toned finish is a very nice and/or pronounced (IMO 'Buntmetall'-based-) example having extraordinary detail (the medal has IMO never been cleaned nor polished and is just a bit dusty and/or tarnished, simply caused by decades of storage and/or minimal wear). The 'Einzel- spange' is backed with a piece of bordeaux-red-coloured wool and shows a (regular-type- and/or fully functional-) pin-/catch- set-up. It should be noted that the (common!) 'Kriegs- verdienstmedaille 1939' is one of those awards that is not often (ie. almost never!) encountered in the format of an: 'Einzelspange'. Simply a very attractive example that will be hard to be upgraded!
Attractive example of a Spanish-issued, Spanish Civil War commemorative-medal called: 'Medalla de la Campaña 1936-1939' that comes mounted on its (typically Spanish) mounted ribbon as issued and/or worn The neat and/or multi-coloured medal retains all of its fairly darkened, black- and/or golden-toned finish and retains a very detailed and/or pronounced appearance: it is just a bit dirty and/or tarnished simply caused by decades of storage and/or mimimal wear. The front of the medal shows a lion crushing a dragon bearing a hammer and sickle underfoot imposed on a gilt cross made up of four swords, a radiant sun and the date: '17 Julio 1936' above, all within a gilt border with an oak and laurel wreath, signed: 'España'; the reverse shows a gilt eagle soaring above the arms of Spain, a helmet and the yoke and arrows symbol of the Falangists within a circular border inscribed: 'Arriba España - Genessmo. Franco Victor. - Una Grande, Libre, Imperial, M. Hisp.Glor.' as to be expected. The medal - which was clearly issued ie. worn - was recently found at a (German) flea-market and comes mounted on its original piece of confectioned and/or folded ribbon (which measures in total 10 cms. and that comes mounted on its golden-toned coloured and/or typical Spanish-issued so-called: mounting 'Spange' ie. bar (see pictures). Simply a nice opportunity to aquire a very attracttive example of the Spanish-issued Civil War commemorative-medal!
Attractive example of a Waffen-SS cap-skull (being of the larger model as was executed in neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern and being of the tropical version ie. being golden-brown coloured) This is an attractive example of a golden-brown-coloured Waffen-SS cap-skull (ie. 'Totenkopf') being of the desirable larger model as was executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern and being of the tropical version (ie. being golden-brown coloured-), that comes in an overall very nice (ie. stonemint-/unissued-) condition. These tropical skulls are nowadays still easier to find than their 'off-white'- ie. silver-coloured counterparts, however, one should realize that also these 'tropical'-examples are getting harder to find and will IMO soon be as difficult to obtain. The example on offer here comes in a truly stonemint condition and was never issued nor worn: it comes as 'straightly cut-of the role' it shows no defaults nor age whatsoever. Simply a very attractive example that will be very hard to be upgraded!

Attractive example of a WH (Heeres) rank-chevron (ie. 'Gefreitenwinkel') as was intended for an: 'Obergefreiter mit mehr als 6 Dienstjahre', as was intended for usage on the various field-grey-coloured-, 'Heeres'-tunics I recently uncovered three - fully identical- and or: unissued! - examples of the WH (Heeres) rank-chevron (ie. 'Gefreitenwinkel') as was intended for an: 'Obergefreiter mit mehr als 6 Dienstjahre' (being executed in the 'Alter Art'- ie. old-style-pattern) as was intended for usage on the various field-grey-coloured-, naval: 'Küstenartillerie'-tunics, all three pieces in overall very nice- (ie. virtually mint-/unissued- and/or never tunic-attached-) condition. The examples are executed on typical 'Heeres'-type darker-green-coloured wool and show a single stripe of the typical silver-toned 'Heeres'-style NCO-braid with above that a (machine-embroidered-) single pip (see pictures). The badges are, moreover, nicely 'backed' with greyish-coloured linnen and were truly never used nor tunic-attached. It should be noted that these neat rank-chevrons are with certainty not that easily encountered if needed. The price is natuarlly intended for one single 'Gefreitenwinkel'. Simply a nice occasion to acquire a scarcely encountered army rank-piece!
Attractive example of a WH (Heeres- ie. Waffen-SS) 'Krim' campaign-shield, that comes (originally) mounted on its piece of field-grey coloured and/or woolen-based cloth and which is a by: 'Friedrich Orth - Wien'-produced example This is a truly attractive (and/or virtually mint!) example of a WH (Heeres- ie. Waffen-SS) 'Krim' campaign-shield, that comes (originally) mounted on its piece of field-grey coloured and/or woolen-based cloth and which is a by: 'Friedrich Orth - Wien'-produced example, that comes in an overall very nice- (IMO issued but never worn- nor tunic-attached-) condition. The shield has IMO not been used (ie. has never been on a tunic thus might well be issued but simply has not been mounted on a tunic) and comes naturally complete with its metal back-plate and retains all its (four) originally attached prongs: its (typical 'Orth'-pattern- and/or green-coloured-) protective backing is also present (see pictures). Although this piece is in a clearly unissued condition it shows some minimal tarnish ie. dust simply caused by years of storage only: all its truly glossy finish (ie. 'Brennlackierte Vorderseite') has been nicely preserved. It has, however, great pronounced detail and has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished. The piece originates from a German flea-market and was never before part of a collection. It should be noted that these complete 'Krim' campaign-shields as produced by the 'Friedrich Orth'-company are not very common and can easily be graded 'scarce'. Simply a very attractive - and of course 100% original by the 'Friedrich Orth'-company produced - example: hard to find a more attractive example for a more interesting price!

The shield comes naturally complete with its metal-based back-plate and retains all its (four) originally attached prongs. The piece is 'backed' with a brownish-beige-coloured paper (of which only some remains are still present as can be seen on the pictures). The campaign-shield shows some minimal tarnish ie. dust, simply caused by years of storage and/or moderate wear: truly most of its glossy finish (ie. 'brennlackierte Vorderseite') has been nicely preserved. It has, moreover, great pronounced detail and has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece originates from a German flea-market and was never before part of a collection. It should be noted that these complete 'Krim' campaign-shields as period-mounted on a darker-green-coloured backing are not very common and can easily be graded 'scarce'. Simply a very attractive - and of course 100% original example: hard to find a more attractive example for a more interesting price!

'Gefreitenwinkel') as was intended for an: 'Obergefreiter', as was intended for usage on the various field-grey-coloured-, naval: 'Küstenartillerie'-tunics I recently uncovered eight - fully identical- and or: unissued! - examples of the WH (Kriegsmarine ie. 'Küstenartillerie') rank-chevron (ie. 'Gefreitenwinkel') as was intended for an: 'Obergefreiter' (being executed in the 'Alter Art'- ie. old-style-pattern) as was intended for usage on the various field-grey-coloured-, naval: 'Küstenartillerie'-tunics, all eight pieces in overall very nice- (ie. virtually mint-/unissued- and/or never tunic-attached-) condition. The examples are executed on typical 'Heeres'-type field-grey-coloured wool and show a single stripe of the typical golden-toned 'Küstenartillerie'-style NCO-braid with above that a single pip: all 8 pieces are IMO executed in detailed hand-embroidery and are executed in so-called: 'Celluon'-type braid as is more often seen (see pictures). The badges are, moreover, nicely 'backed' with greyish-coloured linnen and were truly never used nor tunic-attached. It should be noted that these neat naval rank-chevrons are with certainty not that easily encountered if needed. The price is natuarlly intended for one single 'Gefreitenwinkel'. Simply a nice occasion to acquire a scarcely encountered naval rank-piece!
Attractive example of a WH (Luftwaffe) 'Beobachtersabzeichen in Stoff' (or: observers-badge in cloth) being a neatly 'backed'- (ie.

'padded'-) version that is executed in multi-toned colours, in overall very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued-) condition. The badge is neatly 'backed' ie. 'padded' in order to give it a more pronounced- ie. thicker shape and comes as stated in a stonemint- ie. truly unissued (and/or never tunic-attached-) condition. The badge is naturally a fine original example (something that is obvious if one considers the neat and/or detailed stitching used). This example would most certainly look very nice if mounted on a: 'LW Fliegerbluse' and is a sound (and much cheaper!) alternative for its metal counterparts. Simply a very attractive example of a 'Beobachtersabzeichen in Stoff' that is IMO accordingly priced!

'padded'-) version, in overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. tunic-removed-) condition. The badge is neatly 'backed' ie. 'padded' in order to give it a more thicker shape and is as stated in a nicely used and/or worn condition: it orginates from a private German household where it was recently found. The badge is naturally a fine original example (something that is obvious if one considers the neat multi-coloured- threads and/or detailed stitching used - see pictures). The piece is nicely 'backed' with a piece of black coloured linnen as to be expected. This example would most certainly look very nice if mounted on a 'LW Fliegerbluse' and is a sound (and cheaper!) alternative for its metal counterparts. Simply a very nice example of a 'Fliegerschützenabzeichen mit Blitzbündel in Stoff'!

Attractive example of a: 'Wiederholungsspange zum EK II.

Klasse' (or bar to the WWI IC 2nd class) being a non-maker-marked example as was IMO produced by the: 'Wilhelm Deumer'-company, that comes in an overall nice, albeit clearly issued and/or worn, condition. The neat piece truly retains most of its 'high polished sides (or 'hochpolierte Kanten') and is still very detailed and/or pronounced as to be expected: it came together with its (minimally confectioned- and/or neatly folded-) piece of WWI-period EKII-ribbon ie. 'Bandabschnitt' see pictures). The 'Spange' retains three (of its originally four-) prongs and is as stated above only minimally stained ie. dirty: it retains a very nice age-patina and was IMO never cleaned nor polished. The piece is - as stated above a non-maker-marked example (as is more often the case) - that can IMO be attributed to the: 'Wilhelm Deumer'-company based in the town of Lüdenscheid. As stated is the neat badge IMO never been cleaned nor polished (it is still a bit dirty and comes as found) and has a very nice 'frosted' appearance. The piece originated from a private household and was never before in any collection. It should be noted that these 'Wiederholungsspangen zum EK II. Klasse' are quite scarcely encountered and are not that often appearing on the market. Simply a very nice example that is IMO priced according to its comparative rarity!
Attractive example of a: WH Czech occupation- (ie. 'Anschluss'-) medal: '1. Oktober 1938', that comes with its carton-based pouch and/or ribbon (ie.

Oktober 1938') that comes together with its original (and actually scarcely encountered!) carton- (ie. 'Zellstoff'-) based pouch and/or period ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt'), as was produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'Rudolf Bergs' based in the town of Gablonz a. N., that comes in an overall nice (albeit clearly issued- ie. once worn-), condition. The ribbon was carefully confectioned and with certainty once medal-attached: it measures approx. 19 cms. in length. The (IMO zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based- and/or non-maker-marked-) medal has a nice and fairly 'frosted' age-patina as more often encountered: it shows a very nice and non-altered-, golden-bronze-toned age-patina (see pictures). The details on the piece are, however, still stunning and/or very pronounced. The neat (and truly scarcely encountered!) beige-yellow-coloured- and 'Zellstoff'-based pouch (which is void of any printed text on its front) comes in a complete and/or fully functional condition: it does show, however, some minimal age, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply an attractive - and complete! - 'Anschluss'-medal-set: '1. Oktober 1938' that is IMO accordingly priced!

The piece is IMO only moderately used and shows only minimal age and/or staining. Simply an attractive and actually not that often encountered WH cuff-title which is IMO accordingly priced!

The 'tinnie' is very detailed and retains most (ie. all-) of its silver-coloured finish (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece shows an illustration of a HJ-member bearing a flag with below that the text: 'Für des Führers Jugend': next to this it also shows the HJ-symbol ie. 'Raute'.

Klasse'), as was executed in the scarcely observed, so-called: 'screw-back-version', being an 'L/52'- (= 'C.F.

The cross - which is quite vaulted ie. converse-shaped as to be expected - has IMO never been cleaned and retains a nice, somewhat blackened- ie. tarnished age-patina and/or great pronounced detail. This example - which is an evident specimen as produced by the: 'C.F. Zimmermann' company based in the town of Pforzheim - comes on its 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 (see pictures). This piece - which shows a 'blackened' and/or fairly 'satin-like'- ie. 'matted' inner core that shows some wear (esp. on the swastika-area) - has all the specific specifications of a by: 'C.F. Zimmermann'-produced screw-back-IC (the makers'-code 'L/52' is stamped in lower-section on the back as to be expected). It 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. Simply a truly attractive and fairly unusually encountered IC-first-class that was recently uncovered at a private houshold and that was never before part of a collection: I deem that I have priced this attractive IC first-class by this desirable maker accordingly!

Truly one of the nicest pairs in this particular rank I had on offer for a long time!

'Mantel'): they can easily be recognised as such by means of the supplementary, thin-shaped-, LW-type and/or silver-coloured 'braid' that is off-factory, attached. The patches - which have the neat 'buckram'-based- 'backing' as to be expected - are simply never used nor great-coat attached and never had any gulls nor wings attached. These tabs can easily be graded 'scarce'.
Attractive WH 'Verdienstauszeichnung für Angehörige der Ostvölker, Dritte Klasse in Bronze ohne Schwerter' (or: 'Ostvölker' service-medal for merit on the Eastern Front), being an unmarked 'Feinzink' example - overall nice condition! This is an attractive example of a WH 'Verdienstauszeichnung für Angehörige der Ostvölker, Dritte Klasse in Bronze ohne Schwerter' (or: 'Ostvölker' service-medal for merit on the Eastern Front of the third class without swords), being an unmarked 'Feinzink' example, in overall very nice (IMO only minimally used ie. worn-) condition. The exampe on offer is the bronze- (ie. third-) class without swords. The badge truly retains almost all of its (silver-) bronze-toned finish and still retains great pronounced detail and IMO lots of character (it is a tiny bit tarnished as to be expected). The (darker-green coloured-) ribbon is still sewn together and comes with its period-attached (also bronze-coloured-) pin-/catch 'attachment-clip' still attached. Simply a very nice 'Ostvölker'-related medal that is almost impossible to upgrade!
Attractive WH 'Verdienstauszeichnung für Angehörige der Ostvölker, Zweite Klasse in Silber ohne Schwerter' (or: 'Ostvölker' service-medal for merit on the Eastern Front), being an maker-marked 'Feinzink' example - overall nice condition! This is an attractive example of a WH 'Verdienstauszeichnung für Angehörige der Ostvölker, Zweite Klasse in Silber ohne Schwerter' (or: 'Ostvölker' service-medal for merit on the Eastern Front of the second class without swords), being a neatly maker- (ie. '100'-) marked 'Feinzink' example, in overall very nice (IMO only minimally used ie. worn-) condition. The exampe on offer is the silver- (ie. second-) class without swords. The badge has lost some of its silver-toned finish but still retains great pronounced detail and IMO lots of character (it is a tiny bit tarnished- ie. dirty as to be expected). The (darker-green-/white- coloured-) ribbon is still sewn together and comes with its period-attached (ie. bronze-coloured-) pin-/catch 'attachment-clip' still attached. Simply a very nice 'Ostvölker'-related medal that is almost impossible to upgrade!
Attractive WH (Heer/Waffen-SS) so-called: 'Krim' campaign-shield that comes mounted on its piece of field-grey coloured wool - very nice (IMO only minimally used ie. tunic-removed-) condition! This is a truly very nice - and detailed! example of the WH (Heer and/or Waffen-SS) 'Krim' campaign-shield that comes mounted on its piece of field-grey coloured and/or woolen-based cloth as issued and IMO most certainly worn ie. tunic-removed-, condition. The shield comes naturally complete with its metal back-plate and has all its four prongs in place. It misses however its protective (black-coloured-) paper-based backing (just the remains are still present). Although this piece - which is minimally 'converse-shaped' as more often encountered - is in a moderately used condition, it has maintained truly superb detail and has an almost complete golden-toned ie. bronze-like finish in place. It has IMO never been cleaned nor polished: it is just a tiny bit dusty and dirty caused by decades of storage and/or wear. The 'higer'-placed areas show some truly minimal wear and age, simply caused by usage and wear. Simply a very nice and original example with lots of character: hard to find a better and/or nicer example for a more interesting price!
Attractive WH (Heeres) officers'-model, hand-embroidered, visor-cap cocarde, as executed on a darker-green coloured and/or woolen-based background - overall nice (IMO virtually mint-/unissued-) condition! This is a truly attractive - and very detailed! - example of a WH (Heeres) officers'-model, neatly hand-embroidered visor-cap cocarde (ie. wreath), as was executed on a darker-green coloured and/or woolen-based background, in overall nice and IMO virtually mint-/unissued-, condition. The cocarde - having a metal-based 'inner-cocarde' as more often seen - is executed on a smooth-woolen-based background and shows truly pronounced detail. The cocarde - which was IMO most certainly privately purchased and once acquired at a tailor-shop - was never used nor cap-attached and is hard to be upgraded (see pictures). The piece - which has a black-coloured-, paper-based backing as more often - truly shows extraordinary detail: it shows no corrosion whatsoever and was as stated IMO a privately purchased item. Simply a very nice visor-cap- (ie. 'Schirmmützen'-) insignia-piece that can naturally easily be attached to any 'Heeres' officers' visor-cap!
Attractive – and/or fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres) 'Artillerie'-related regimental shoulderstrap 'slip-ons' (ie. 'Übershube') as intended for a: 'Soldat des Artillerie-Regiments 69' The - fully matching - pair is neatly 'chain-stitched' embroidered (by means of so-called: 'Kürbelstickerei') in bright-red- (ie. 'Hochroter'-) coloured wool and shows some minor (IMO) storage-age only. Simply a nice pair of 'Artillerie'-related 'Übershube' that is IMO accordingly priced: great to 'decorate' a pair of bright-red-piped 'Heeres'-shoulderstraps!
Attractive, 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based so-called: 'hollow-version' that was produced by the: 'P. Meybauer'-company This is a truly very attractive - and IMO only minimally used ie. worn - example of an: 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based so-called: 'hollow-back-version' that was produced by the: 'Paul Meybauer'-company, in an overall very nice, and IMO only minimally used ie. worn, condition. The badge is typical, non-magnetic-, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based example that retains most of its greyish-silver-coloured (albeit tarnished-) finish: it has a typical zinc-coloured 'age-patina'. This particular example comes naturally mounted on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-coloured-) pin (which is mounted on a typical 'mounting' and shows a 'welded-on'- catch as is more often seen). The piece is still very detailed and has a very pronounced appearance: the award has IMO hardly been used and shows some truly minimal wear on the obvious higher areas: it is moreover a tiny dirty (esp. on the back - see pictures) but was most certainly never cleaned nor polished. It originated from a private household in Germany and was never before in collector-hands. I deem that this piece can with certainty be attributed to the: 'Paul Meybauer'-company. In any case a very attractive and honest GAB that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive, 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based so-called: 'semi-hollow-back version' by a (by me) unidentified maker This is an attractive - and IMO hardly used- nor worn - example of an: 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based so-called: 'semi-hollow-back-version' by a (by me) unidentified maker, that comes in an overall very nice- (and IMO hardly used- ie. worn-), condition. The badge is typical, non-magnetic-, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based example that retains most (ie. all) of its typical greyish-silver-coloured finish: it has a typical zinc-coloured- and still somewhat shiny 'age-patina' (see pictures). This particular example comes naturally mounted on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-coloured-) pin (which is mounted on a typical 'mounting' and shows a 'welded-on'- and/or flat-shaped catch as is more often seen). The piece is still very detailed and has a very pronounced appearance: the award has IMO hardly been used and is void of any damage: it is just a tiny dirty ie. stained (see pictures) but was most certainly never cleaned nor polished. It originated from a private household in Germany and was never before in collector-hands. I deem that this piece can most certainly be further attributed to a maker if wanted or deemed needed. In any case a very attractive and honest GAB that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive, 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based solid-back- (ie. so-called: '1.24.3 - unknown nr. 2'-) variant-pattern This particular example - being as stated a - non maker-marked- zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based piece - has maintained an attractive nice (and truly zinc-like-) age-patina and comes naturally mounted on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-toned-) pin. The piece comes with a regular (ie. 'half-moon hinge'-set-up) and catch that is mounted on a circular-plate (see pictures). The piece is very detailed and/or pronounced: it has IMO been moderately used and shows some wear on the obvious higher areas: it is moreover quite dirty but was IMO never cleaned. The piece is IMO never polished and does still show great pronounced detail. This specific GAB - of which to date no exact maker has been determined - is also described on the German Combat Awards- (ie. GCA-) Forum, whereat it has been given the unique reference-number: '1.24.3 - unknown variant-pattern number 2'. It should be noted that this is a desirable - and with certainty not that often encountered! - GAB-variant that can easily be graded 'scarce'.
Attractive, 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based solid-back- (ie. so-called: '1.29.2 - unknown nr. 6'-) variant-pattern This particular example - being as stated a - non maker-marked- zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based piece - has maintained an attractive nice (and somewhat brownish-) age-patina and comes naturally mounted on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-toned-) pin. The piece comes with a regular (ie. sheet-metal-based hinge set-up) and catch that is mounted on a rectangular-plate (see pictures). The piece is very detailed and/or pronounced: it has IMO been moderately used and shows some wear on the obvious higher areas: it is moreover quite dirty but was IMO never cleaned. The piece is IMO never polished and does still show great pronounced detail. This specific GAB - of which to date no exact maker has been determined - is also described on the German Combat Awards- (ie. GCA-) Forum, whereat it has been given the unique reference-number: '1.29.2 - unknown variant-pattern number 6'. Of interest is moreover the fact that due to its thick-based silvered finish this piece can easily be mistaken for a 'Buntmetall'-based piece: it is, however, made-out of zinc (ie. 'Feinzink'). It should be noted that this is a desirable - and with certainty not that often encountered! - GAB-variant that can easily be graded 'scarce'.

Attractive, 'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen' (or General Assault Badge ie. GAB), being an unmarked- and/or: zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based, 'hollow-back'-variant-pattern as was produced by the by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'C.E. Juncker' This particular example - being as stated a non maker-marked- and/or desirable zinc- (ie.'Feinzink'-) based variant - has maintained a very attractive and/or somewhat tarnished- ie. darkened age-patina and comes naturally mounted on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-toned-) pin and/or catch (-set-up). The piece is very detailed and/or pronounced: it has IMO been moderately used ie. worn and shows some wear on the obvious higher areas: it was IMO never cleaned nor polised. The piece shows all the typical characteristics of a piece as was produced by the desirable maker (ie. 'Hersteller') 'C.E. Juncker' based in the town of Berlin. It should be noted that this is a desirable - and with certainty not that often encountered! - GAB-variant that can easily be graded 'fairly scarce'. Hard to upgrade this example!

Attractive, 'Deutsche Volkspflege'- (ie. civil-service-) medal, that comes with its original (minimally confectioned and IMO almost full-length-) ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') that shows a period-attached 'Bandspange' The neat medal - which is IMO executed in silver-coloured, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal - is a very detailed and/or pronounced example: it has a truly nice, somewhat 'matted', age-patina and is also a tiny bit dirty but was IMO never cleaned nor polished (see pictures). The medal came together with its almost full-length- (ie. approximately 24 cms. long-sized and/or neatly pre-folded-) piece of (truly bright-red-coloured- ie. not-faded-) ribbon as issued and/or found. Moreover, shows this ribbon a (period-attached!) 'Bandspange' attache (being a piece that was typically confectioned for women - see pictures). Simply a very nice and attractive example that is very hard to be upgraded!
Attractive, 'Ehrenkreuz der deutschen Mutter - Zweite Stufe' (or: silver-class, mothers'-cross) as was produced by the: 'Julius Moser'-company that comes packed in its original pouch as issued The very attractive award - which comes mounted on its original, approximately 70 cms. long-sized ribbon ie. 'Bandabschnitt' as issued and/or IMO minimally worn - shows truly no enamel damage whatsoever and is in a very nice and/or naturally totally uncleaned- (ie. only minimally tarnished-) condition. The silver finish is truly excellent and the medal has a very nice, somewhat darkened (ie. minimally stained-) age-patina. The ribbon also shows some minimal age, wear and/or staining. The blue-coloured- (ie. larger-sized- and/or: 'Zellstoff'-based-) pouch is in an equally very nice and/or fully undamaged condition and shows a clear makers'-signification on its back (that reads: 'Julius Moser sen. - Oberstein a.d. Nahe'). Almost impossible to upgrade this very attractive example!
Attractive, 'Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse' (or: Iron Cross 1st class), being a neatly maker- (ie. 'L/11'-) marked example, as was produced by the 'Hersteller' (ie. maker): 'Wilh. Deumer' and that comes stored within its specific etui as issued The attractive cross - which is a typical non-vaulted ie. non-converse-shaped example - has IMO never been cleaned and retains a very attractive (somewhat yellowish-coloured-) age-patina and/or great pronounced detail: I deem that it was with certainty issued and/or moderately worn. This example - which is an evident specimen as was produced by the: 'Wilhelm Deumer'-company based in the town of Lüdenscheid - comes naturally mounted on its original- and/or unaltered- (and naturally fully functional-) pin-/catch set-up. The cross shows a neatly 'blackened' and/or fairly 'satin-like'- ie. 'matted' inner-core that shows moderate wear and/or staining but that is totally void of any damage whatsoever. The IC has all the specific specifications of a by the: 'Wilhelm Deumer'-company-produced example: it is as stated above neatly maker-marked with the makers'-designation: 'L/11' (to be found under the catch - see pictures). The award is just a tiny bit dirty and/or tarnished simply caused by years of storage and/or moderate wear but retains a great unmessed-with and/or uncleaned, age-patina and still retains almost all of its polished sides (ie. 'Hochpolierte Kanten'). The cross comes in its equally nicely preserved, black-coloured and/or simulated leather-based- and/or somewhat 'simplified' etui as issued and/or stored for decades. The etui - which is non-marked as more often and shows a fully preserved silver-coloured IC-sign on its top - comes in an equally very nice ie. minimally used condition: the black-coloured and/or (spraid-) velvet-based interior shows some minimal staining ie. wear as more often seen and shows the clear imprint of the cross on its top. Simply a very attractive and totally unmessed-with-, boxed example of a by the: 'Wilhelm Deumer'-company produced EKI that is IMO priced according to its attractive condition!
Attractive, 'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') district-triangle entitled: 'Nord Nordsee' (being an example that still retains its 3 period-attached- and/or: metal-based 'snap-on' push-buttons) This is a 'male'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in bright-golden-coloured linnen on a black-coloured- (and also linnen-based-) background. This example came with its 3 period-attached- and/or: metal-based 'snap-on' push-buttons still in place and was moderately used and/or worn. The triangle is void of a so-called: 'RzM'-etiket and does show some truly minimal staining, simply caused by decades of storage and/or moderate wear - see pictures). Simply a very attractive, male-type 'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') district-triangle that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive, 'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') district-triangle entitled: 'Nord Nordsee' still retaining its period-attached-, paper-based so-called: 'RzM'-etiket This is a 'male'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in bright-golden-coloured linnen on a black-coloured- (and also linnen-based-) background. This example still retains its period-attached-, paper-based so-called: 'RzM-etiket' (being a so-called: 'L-Stück') and was with certainty a piece that was never worn nor tunic-attached: it can easily be graded 'virtually mint-/unissued'. It does, however, shows some truly minimal staining, simply caused by decades of storage only - see pictures). This is one of the more scarcely encountered examples of the 'Gebietsdreiecken'-series. In any case a very attractive, male-type 'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') district-triangle that is IMO priced according to its comparative desirability!

Attractive, 'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') district-triangle entitled: 'Südost Oberdonau' still retaining its period-attached-, paper-based so-called: 'RzM'-etiket I recently uncovered five - fully identical! - examples of the so-called: 'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') district-triangles (ie. 'Gebietsdreiecken') entitled: 'Südost Oberdonau', being all five virtually mint- ie. unissued examples that still retain their period-attached-, paper-based so-called: 'RzM-etikets' (being all so-called: 'A-Stücke'). All five pieces are 'male'-specimen, indicating that they were neatly woven in bright-golden-coloured linnen on a black-coloured- (and also linnen-based-) background. The examples on offer here were with certainty never worn nor tunic-attached and came as found: they can easily be graded 'virtually mint-/unissued'. The pieces do, however, show some truly minimal staining, simply caused by decades of storage only - see pictures. The asking-price is naturally intended for one single example. Simply a nice opportunity to acquire a male-type, 'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') district-triangle that was worn by members of one of the Austrian-based 'HJ-Gebiete'!
Attractive, 'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') ie. 'BDM' ('Bund Deutscher Mädel') district-triangle entitled: 'Südost Oberdonau' still retaining its period-attached-, paper-based so-called: 'RzM'-etiket I recently uncovered five - fully identical! - examples of the so-called: 'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') ie. 'BDM' ('Bund Deutscher Mädel') district-triangles (ie. 'Gebietsdreiecken') entitled: 'Südost Oberdonau', being all five virtually mint- ie. unissued examples that still retain their period-attached-, paper-based so-called: 'RzM-etikets' (being all so-called: 'A-Stücke'). All five pieces are 'female'-specimen, indicating that they were neatly woven in white-coloured linnen on a black-coloured- (and also linnen-based-) background. The examples on offer here were with certainty never worn nor tunic-attached and came as found: they can easily be graded 'virtually mint-/unissued'. The pieces do, however, show some truly minimal staining, simply caused by decades of storage only - see pictures. The asking-price is naturally intended for one single example. Simply a nice opportunity to acquire a female-type, 'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') ie. 'BDM' ('Bund Deutscher Mädel') district-triangle that was worn by members of one of the Austrian-based 'HJ-Gebiete'!
Attractive, 'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') ie. 'BDM' (or: 'Bund Deutscher Mädel') district-triangle (ie. 'Gebietsdreieck') entitled: 'Südost Wien', that comes with its originally attached, paper-based 'RzM'-etiket This is a 'female'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in white-coloured linnen on a black-coloured- (and also linnen-based-) background. This example comes as stated with its originally attached-, paper-based so-called: 'RzM-etiket' ('A-Stück') still in place and is in a virtually mint-/unissued condition. It should be noted that the 'Austrian'-based HJ district-triangles rank amongst the more difficult youth-triangles of the extensive 'Gebietsdreiecke'-series to encounter. This particular 'BDM'-piece can easily be graded: 'fairly scarce'.
Attractive, 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Bronze', being an unmarked (and/or quite converse- ie. vaulted-) 'hollow-back' example by the maker: 'Friedrich Linden' as was executed in bronze-coloured, zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink' or: pot-metal) This example is a truly attractive, albeit non-maker-marked-, award: it has a 'typical' catch and/or hinge (-set-up) as is more often encountered with IABs by this maker. I deem that this example can with certainty be determined as a 'later-war-period variant' that can be attributed to the maker: 'Friedrich Linden' based in the town of Lüdenscheid. The badge was with certainly issued and comes in a moderately used- ie. worn (see pictures). It was IMO never cleaned nor polished and still retains, however, most of its somewhat brownish-toned- ie. bronze-coloured finish as can be seen on the pictures (something that is not that often seen on these later-war 'FLL'-examples). The pin and/or catch (ie. set-up-) are of course fully functional and/or present (they are both in pristine condition). The piece - which originates from a private household where it was recently found - shows as stated above only moderate wear and will be hard to be upgraded. Simply a nice 'hollow-back' IAB-variant is not that often offered for sale and that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive, 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber' (or silver IAB), being a maker- (ie. 'F.O.'-) marked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) version ie. 'variant', as was procuded by the: 'Friedrich Orth'-company based in Wien (Vienna) This is an attractive - albeit IMO minimally used ie. worn - example of an: 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber' (or silver assault-badge ie. IAB), being being a neat maker- (ie. 'F.O.'-) marked, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) version ie. 'variant', as was procuded by the unusally encountered: 'Friedrich Orth'-company based in Wien (Vienna), in overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn-) condition. The badge is a minimally vaulted- ie. converse- and/or typical zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based example that retains most of its silver-coloured finish: it has a typical age-patina as more often seen with zinc-based IABs by this maker. This particular example comes naturally mounted on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-coloured-) pin which shows a typical mounting and/or catch as to be expected. The piece is very detailed and has a very pronounced appearance: the award has IMO been moderately used and shows some wear ie. dirt on some the obvious higher-placed areas: it was however most certainly never cleaned nor polished. It originated from a private household in Germany and was never before in collector-hands. The maker of this particular IAB is the: 'Friedrich Orth'-company based in Wien (Vienna) that retains a clearly visible makers'-mark ie. 'F.O.'-logo on the back (see pictures). In any case an attractive and honest IAB that is IMO accordingly priced!

'Feinzink'-) based example that retains a fair bit of its period-applied silver-coloured finish: it has a typical 'zinc-based' age-patina as more often seen with zinc-based IABs by this maker. This particular example comes naturally mounted on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-coloured-) pin which shows a (variant 'flat-wire'-) catch as is more often seen. The piece is very detailed and has a very pronounced appearance: the award has IMO been moderately used and shows some wear ie. dirt on some the obvious higher-placed areas: it was however most certainly never cleaned nor polished. It originated from a private household in Germany and was never before in collector-hands. The maker of this particular IAB is the: 'Funcke u. Brüninghaus'-company based in Lüdenscheid something that is affirmed by the clearly visible makers'-mark ie. 'L/56'-logo on the back (see pictures).

The piece is very detailed and has a very pronounced appearance: the award has IMO been moderately used and shows some wear ie. dirt on some the obvious higher-placed areas: it was however most certainly never cleaned nor polished. It originated from a private household in Germany and was never before in collector-hands. The maker of this particular IAB is the: 'Funcke u. Brüninghaus'-company based in Lüdenscheid something that is affirmed by the various specifications and/or details as can be seen on the pictures.

IAB), being a non-maker-marked-, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based version (ie. 'crimped scooped rifle-variant'), as was procuded by the: 'S&L'-company, in overall nice (albeit issued- ie. worn-) condition. The badge is a typical zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based example that retains a fair bit of its (dull-) silver-coloured finish: it has a typical 'Feinzink'-like age-patina. This particular example comes naturally on its functional (thin-shaped- and/or silver-coloured-) pin which shows a typical 'crimped' mounting and/or catch as to be expected. The piece is very detailed and has a very pronounced appearance: the award has IMO been moderately used and shows some minimal wear ie. dirt on some the obvious higher-placed areas: it was however most certainly never cleaned nor polished. It originated from a private household in Germany and was never before in collector-hands. The maker of this particular IAB is the: 'Steinhauer u. Lück'-company and it deals with an uncommonly encountered so-called: 'crimped scooped rifle-variant'. In any case a very attractive and honest IAB that is IMO accordingly priced!

IAB), being an unmarked, so-called: 'pillow-crimp'-example as was executed in greyish-silver-coloured, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based- metal, in overall very nice (albeit moderately used and/or worn-) condition. This example is as always a non-maker-marked award of the desirable 'pillow-crimp'-pattern: it has a 'typical' crimped catch and/or equally crimped hinge set-up as to be expected (to date the exact maker of these neat 'pillow-crimp'-pattern IABs has not yet been determined: they can, however, be attributed to one of the so-called: 'Vienna-design'-makers). The badge seems IMO to be totally uncleaned and has a still a nice and somewhat silver-greyish coloured age-patina: it retains most of its silverish finish and is still very pronounced and/or detailed. The pin and/or catch (ie. set-up-) are of course fully functional and/or present. The piece - which originates from a private household where it was recently found - shows some regular wear and/or staining was IMO never cleaned nor polished. Simply a very attractive and honest silver-class, 'Feinzink'-based IAB of the 'pillow-crimp'-pattern that is IMO accordingly priced!

Attractive, 'Polizei' ie. 'Gendarmerie' (police), silver-coloured and/or alumimium-based-, enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCO- or officers'-) type pouch-eagle (or: 'Adler für Kartuschkasten'), being a very detailed and or non-maker-marked example This is an attractive - and nowadays not that easily encountered! - 'Polizei' ie. 'Gendarmerie', alumimium-based-, enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCO- or officers'-) type pouch-eagle (or: 'Adler für Kartuschkasten'), being a very detailed and or non-maker-marked example, in overall very nice (IMO virtually mint-/unissued-) condition. The piece - which has an approximate wingspan of 10 cms. - is as stated above non-marker-marked and comes of course in a fully functional condition. Naturally are all three (aluminium-based-) prongs present and/or fully functional: they were IMO never bent ie. folded and are of course still functional. The (left-facing-) eagle - which is very detailed - has a nice so-called: 'frosted' ie. truly aluminium-like appearance and was never cleaned nor polished. Simply a great item that is ideally fitted to restore or complete a so-called: 'Polizei-Kartuschkasten'!
Attractive, 'Reichssportabzeichen DRL in Bronze' (or: DRL sports'-badge in bronze), being an example that is nicely maker- (ie. 'Wernstein - Jena'-) marked on the back The attractive sports-badge is of the version with swastika and retains almost all of its (minimally darkened-, truly golden-bronze-coloured-) finish. As stated is the badge nicely maker-marked: 'Wernstein/Jena' and bears the 'DRGM' text and/or number on the back, as usually encountered. The badge - which has a fully functional pin- and/or pin-catch set-up - was IMO never cleaned nor polished and retains a minimally darkened- and/or untouched age-patina (see pictures).

Attractive, 'standard'-pattern, WH 'Zeiler'-type flashlight (ie. 'Taschenlampe'), as executed in reddish-brown coloured 'Bakelite', still retaining its original and/or complete leather strap (ie. 'Lasche') This is a very niceb - and in this complete condition scarcely encountered! - 'standard'-pattern, WH 'Zeiler' flashlight (of the type '4640' ie. 'Taschenlampe'), as was executed in reddish/brown-coloured 'Bakelite' and still retaining its original and/or complete (artificial-) leather-based strap (ie. 'Lasche'), in overall nice (ie. complete and/or fully undamaged-), condition. The flashlight comes naturally complete (with its original light-bulb) and is IMO still fully functional. Both (dark-green- ie. bordeaux-red-) coloured operating-buttons are present and in full working order. These desirable hand-held flashlights saw usage on all possible battle-fronts throughout the war. The piece is just a tiny bit dusty but was never cleaned. The inside shows the usual markings as to be expected. It should be noted that 9 out of 10 encountered examples have a broken ie. (partly-) missing leather-based strap (ie. 'Lasche') on the back: this example is fully untouched and/or complete, something that merits IMO my asking-price. Simply a very nice little equipment-item!
Attractive, 'Treuedienst Ehrenzeichen 1. Klasse' (or golden class - loyal-service medal for 40 yrs. of service), that comes mounted on its original ribbon as issued and/or (IMO) minimally worn The attractive (and/or non-maker-marked-) medal is a very nice and/or truly detailed piece that retains almost all of its fairly 'frosted'-styled, bright golden-toned finish: it also retains most of its: 'hochpolierte Kanten' (or polished sides) as issued. The medal comes mounted on its cornflower-blue-coloured ribbon as to be expected. The medal has most certainly never been cleaned - it shows some minimal tarnish - and has an immaculate (ie. fully undamaged) black-coloured- and neatly enamelled swastika-area (see pictures). Simply a very nice example that is almost impossible to be upgraded!
Attractive, 'Treuedienst Ehrenzeichen 2. Klasse' (or silver class - loyal-service medal for 25 yrs. of service), that comes mounted on its original ribbon as issued and/or minimally worn The (as always non-maker-marked-) service-medal is a very nice and/or truly detailed piece that retains almost all of its fairly 'frosted'-styled, silverish finish: it also retains most of its: 'hochpolierte Kanten' (or polished sides) as issued. The medal comes mounted on its cornflower-blue-coloured ribbon which still retains its period - copper-toned - attachment-pin for wearing the medal on a tunic. The medal has most certainly never been cleaned - it shows some minimal tarnish - and has an immaculate (ie. fully undamaged) enamelled swastika-area. Simply a very nice example that is almost impossible to be upgraded!

Attractive, 'variant'-pattern, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based: 'Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen in Silber' being a maker- (ie. 'R.S.'-) marked example that was produced by the: 'Rudolf Souval'-company and that comes with its (rarely seen!) 'LDO'-marked pouch This example - which is as stated above nicely 'R.S.'-marked on the back as more often encountered with awards by this maker - is a typical piece as was produced by the: 'Rudolf Souval'-company based in the town of Wien (ie. Vienna) in Austria. The badge - which has truly pronounced detaill - comes naturally with a functional (and/or unaltered-) catch, pin- and/or hinge (-set-up) as to be expected. The piece - which is also referred to as a: 'small mark'-variant - is executed from greyish-coloured zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal and has maintained a neat silverish-grey-coloured- and/or typical 'zinc-based' finish (as to be expected). The badge - which was IMO never used- nor worn - shows some dust and aging but was never cleaned nor polished: it has a nice, somewhat darkened age-patina (see pictures). The piece came stored in its typical: 'Zellstoff'-based- and/or: LDO-marked paper-based pouch. The pouch shows a red-coloured ink-stamp that reads: 'Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen - Silber'on its front and is additionally marked on the back with the text: 'Die Herstellung von..... etc.'. Moreover, does it shows a pencilled price- ie. inventory numeral (see pictures). The pouch is naturally fully complete and/or still functional: it just shows some minimal staining ie. usage- ie. storage-marks. I am convinced that this 'simply' pouch is actually x-times rarer to find than the actual badge itself. These desirable and neatly maker-marked 'variant'- ie. 'classic set-up' variant-IABs as produced by the 'R.S.'-company can easily be graded 'fairly scarce': even more so when the come stored in their period pouch!
Attractive, 'variant-pattern', linnen-based- and/or printed-styled-, golden-yellow-coloured armband entitled: 'Im Dienst der Deutsche Wehrmacht', as was intended for staff-members of the German armed forces ie.

'Armbinde') entitled: 'Im Dienst der Deutsche Wehrmacht', as was intended for (amongst others) staff-members of the German armed forces ie. 'Wehrmacht', that comes in an overall very nice (IMO issued- and/or moderatly worn-), condition. These neat golden-yellow-coloured- and/or: linnen-based armbands were used by the various (civil- and/or military-) staff-members of the German armed-forces ie. 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' (I deem that this type was also worn by certain Eastern Volunteers ie. members of the various 'Ostvölker'). The armband on offer here measures approximately 39 x 10 cms. and is executed on more 'course-like-structured' linnen. The piece shows some minimal staining ie. dust, simply caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very nice and with the text: 'Im Dienst der Deutsche Wehrmacht' certainty unusualy encountered example!
Attractive, 'Waffen-SS', enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCO-) pattern collar-tab (ie. 'Kragen- spiegel für Mannschaften u. Unterführer'), as was executed in so-called: 'BeVo'-weave-style The attractive collar-tab is of the 'standard-issue'-pattern that was intended for usage by the various Waffen-SS enlisted men (and/or NCOs) throughout the war and comes in a never used- nor tunic-attached-, condition. The tab shows the more often encountered white-coloured- and/or: typical 'buckram'-based 'backing' (see pictures). As stated above, has the piece never been worn nor used but does show some moderate staining caused by decades of storage only (the piece shows some tiny holes on its back, IMO simply caused by storage - see pictures). It should be noted that hese 'BeVo'-weave-pattern Waffen-SS-type collar-tabs can easily be graded 'fairly scarce'. Simply a very attractive example that is impossible to be upgraded!

Attractive, 17mm.-sized-, so-called: 'Halbminiatur', depicting a: 'Verwundeten- abzeichen in Gold' (or golden-class wound-badge), being a neatly maker- (ie. 'L/13'-) marked example as was produced by the: 'Paul Meybauer'-company This is a truly attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - 17mm.-sized-, so-called: 'Halbminiatur', depicting a: 'Verwundetenabzeichen in Gold' (or golden-class wound-badge) being a neatly maker- (ie. 'L/13'-) marked example as was produced by the: 'Paul Meybauer'-company based in the town of Berlin, that comes in an overall nice (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. The award has great pronounced detail and retains most of its golden-coloured finish having a non-obscured swastika-area: it is just a tiny bit stained and/or tarnished (see pictures). The badge - which comes on its period-attached- and/or long-sized pin - has never been cleaned: as stated is most of its original finish present. Simply a nice and very detailed 'Halbminiatur': almost impossible to find a better example for a more attractive price!
Attractive, 1944 pattern-, EM-type-, Waffen-SS cuff-title (ie. 'Ärmelstreifen'), as was executed in neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern, as was intended for a member within the: 'Osttürkischer Waffen-Verband der SS' This is an attractive - and naturally 100% original! - so-called: 1944 pattern, Waffen-SS, enlisted-mens'-type cuff-title (ie. 'Ärmelstreifen') depicting the machine-woven Latin-script text in silver-white-coloured linnen on a typical greenish-coloured background, as was intended for usage by a member who served within the: 'Osttürkischer Waffen-Verband der SS', in overall very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued-) condition. The full-length cuff-title (approx. 43/44 cms. sized in length) has the typical 'salt and pepper-styled'-reverse and shows all details of an original, period-produced specimen. This band was produced by the: 'Bandfabrik Ewald Vorsteher' (aka: 'BeVo') as based in the town of Wuppertal but does not show the interwoven company-name on one of the ends (something that is more often seen - see pictures). This cuff-title is naturally a 100% text-book - and as stated above - original example that originates from a US-veteran who 'liberated' this piece in 1945 (almost certainly in one of the Dachau-based clothing-depots). The piece is void from any staining nor evident age and was never worn nor tunic-attached: it does show minimal fraying on both its ends (IMO nothing that shocking though). Simply a great opportunity to acquire an attractive Waffen-SS-related- and/or: 'BeVo'-type cuff-title for a competitive price: I have seen these sell for much more than my asking-price!
Attractive, 2-pieced WH (Heeres) medal-bar (ie. 'Spange'), comprising of a silver-toned 4-years loyal-service-medal and golden-toned 12-years loyal-service-medal, both pieces having their originally-applied eagle-devices attached This is an attractive - and IMO only moderately used- ie. worn - example of a WH (Heeres) 2-pieced medal-bar (ie. 'Spange'), showing repectively the silver-toned 4-years loyal-service-medal (or: 'Wehrmacht-Dienstauszeichnung 4. Klasse für 4 Jahre Dienstzeit') and golden-toned 12-years loyal-service-medal (or: 'Wehrmacht-Dienstauszeichnung 3. Klasse für 12 Jahre Dienstzeit') and that both come mounted on their confectioned-, cornflower-blue-coloured ribbons and both having their originally-attached, eagle-devices attached, that comes in an overall very nice- (and IMO only moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. These 'bars' could be ordered and/or privately obtained at special tailor- ie. medal-selling companies. The piece is neatly 'backed' with field-grey-coloured wool and comes mounted on a steel-based backing-plate (as always). The - very detailed! - medals were IMO never cleaned nor polished: both show only minimal tarnish but both were most certainly never cleaned nor polished. Both - detailed - devices show some equal and sligthly tarnished areas but are also never cleaned: the piece comes as recently found at a private-household and was most certainly worn as such. Simply a very nice example of such a 'Spange' ie. medal-bar that is IMO impossible to upgrade: ready to 'decorate' any 'Heeres'-tunic!
Attractive, 2-pieced WH (Luftwaffe) medal-bar (ie. 'Spange'), comprising of a silver-toned 4-years loyal-service-medal and golden-toned 12-years loyal-service-medal, both pieces having their originally-applied (and downtailed!) eagle-devices attached This is an attractive - and IMO only moderately used- ie. worn - example of a WH (Luftwaffe) 2-pieced medal-bar (ie. 'Spange'), showing repectively the silver-toned 4-years loyal-service-medal (or: 'Wehrmacht-Dienstauszeichnung 4. Klasse für 4 Jahre Dienstzeit') and golden-toned 12-years loyal-service-medal (or: 'Wehrmacht-Dienstauszeichnung 3. Klasse für 12 Jahre Dienstzeit') and that both come mounted on their confectioned-, cornflower-blue-coloured ribbons and both having their originally-attached (down-tailed!) eagle-devices attached, in overall very nice- (and IMO only moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. These 'bars' could be ordered and/or privately obtained at special tailor ie. medal-selling companies. The piece is neatly 'backed' with greyish-blue-coloured wool and comes mounted on a steel-based backing-plate (as always). The - very detailed! - medals were IMO never cleaned nor polished: both show only minimal tarnish but both were most certainly never cleaned nor polished. Both - detailed - devices show some equal and sligthly tarnished areas but are also never cleaned: the piece comes as recently found at a private-household and was most certainly worn as such. Simply a very nice example of such a 'Spange' ie. medal-bar that is IMO impossible to upgrade: ready to 'decorate' any 'Luftwaffe'-tunic!
Attractive, 2-pieced-, WH (Heeres etc.) medal-bar (ie. 'Band- o. Feldspange'), showing respectively the ribbons for a: 'KvK II. Kl. m. Schw.' and a (not that often seen!) 'Tapferkeitsauszeichnung für Angehörige der Ostvölker, 2. Kl. in Silber mit Schw.' The attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - two-pieced-, WH (Heeres etc.) medal-bar (ie. 'Band-/Feldspange') depicts respectively the the ribbons for a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz II. Klasse mit Schwerter' (or: war-merits-cross second class with swords) and a: 'Tapferkeitsauszeichnung für Angehörige der Ostvölker, 2. Klasse in Silber mit Schwerter' (or: 'Ostvölker' service-medal for shown bravery on the Eastern Front with swords), that comes in a nice (albeit clearly used- ie. worn-), example. Both ribbons are of the regular (ie. smaller-), ribbon-bar-size and measure approximately 1,5 cms. each as is more often encountered (the piece has a total length of approximately 3 cms.). The 'Spange' comes in a nice condition overall and is of course fully functional: it is not backed (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece retains its functional pin-/catch-attachment (see pictures). The attached device shows some minimal age ie. tarnish but has been nicely preserved. This particular example was IMO moderately worn ie. used: it does show some usage-marks and/or minimal aging ie. wear. Simply an attractive, two-pieced 'Band-/Feldspange' showing an unusual combination: great to decorate almost any tunic!
Attractive, 3-pieced WH (Heeres o. KM) medal-bar (ie. 'Spange'), showing respectively an: 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse', a: WH (Heeres o. KM) 'DA für 4 Jahre TD' and a Czech 'Anschluss'-medal This is a very decorative example of a 3-pieced WH (Heeres o. Kriegsmarine) medal-bar (ie. 'Spange'), showing respectively an: 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' (or iron cross second class), a: 'Dienstauszeichnung für 4 Jahre Treue Dienste' (or : loyal-service medal as was awarded for four years of loyal service) still having its (silver-toned-) eagle-device attached and a Czech so-called: 'Anschluss'-medal (or: 'Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938') as was awarded for the annexation of Czechoslovakia), all three pieces in overall very nice- (albeit moderately worn- ie. used-), condition. All three medals are very nice, decent examples that seem to have never been cleaned nor polished: all three come in an equally tarnished- ie. minimally dusty condition and also come on their period-mounted ribbons. The 'Dienstauszeichnung' naturally shows its (period-attached-) silver-coloured (albeit somewhat tarnished-) miniature eagle-device attached (as can be seen on the pictures). The entire 'Spange' is a tiny bit dirty ie. tarnished, simply caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage: it comes naturally mounted on its metal backing-plate (that is neatly backed with a piece of black-coloured wool and that still retains its functional pin-/catch set-up - see pictures). The 'Spange' is most certainly a period-compiled- and/or worn piece and is NOT a post-war compilation: it originated from a private household in Germany and was kept as such for decades. Simply a very nice - and with certainty decorative! - 3-pieced WH (Heeres o. KM) medal-bar- ie. 'Spange' that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive, 3-pieced-, WH (Heeres ie. Kriegsmarine) medal-bar (ie. 'Band- o. Feldspange'), showing respectively the ribbons for a: 'KvK II.Kl. m. Schw.' and two 'WH-Dienstauszeichnungen' (of resp. the 3rd and/or 4th class) The attractive 3-pieced-, WH (Heeres ie. Kriegsmarine) medal-bar (ie. 'Band-/Feldspange') depicts respectively the the ribbons for a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz II. Klasse mit Schwerter' (or: war-merits-cross second class with swords), a: 'Wehrmacht Dienstauszeichnung der 3. Klasse' (or WH loyal-service medal as was awarded for twelve years of loyal service) and a: 'Wehrmacht Dienstauszeichnung der 4. Klasse' (or WH loyal-service medal as was awarded for four years of loyal service), both having their period-attached golden- (ie. silver-) toned eagle-devices attached. All three ribbons are of the regular (ie. smaller-), ribbon-bar-size and measure approximately 1,5 cms. each as is more often encountered (the piece has a total length of approximately 4,5 cms.). The 'Spange' comes in a nice condition overall and is of course fully functional: it is not backed with wool but has been mounted on a chromed-metal-based 'back-plate' (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece retains its functional pin-/catch-attachment (see pictures). All three attached devices show some minimal age ie. tarnish but have been nicely preserved. This particular example was IMO moderately worn ie. used: it does show some usage-marks and/or minimal aging ie. wear. Simply an attractive 3-pieced 'Band-/Feldspange': great to decorate almost any tunic!

The 'Spange' comes in a nice condition overall and is of course fully functional: it is, however, not backed but comes mounted on a chrome-steel-based mounting (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece retains its functional pin-/catch-attachment (see pictures). Both (firmly attached) devices show some minimal age ie. tarnish but have been nicely preserved.

The 'Spange' comes in a nice condition overall and is of course fully functional: it is, however, not backed but comes mounted on a chrome-steel-based mounting (as can be seen on the pictures).

Attractive, 3-pieced-, WWI- (ie. WWII-) period-, medal-bar, depicting resp. the ribbons for a WWI-period: 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Kl.', a: 'Frontkämpferkreuz m.

Klasse' (or golden-class, loyal-service medal for 40 years of service), all three pieces in an overall nice (albeit clearly issued- ie. worn-) condition. The 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' (or: iron-cross second-class) is a truly nicely preserved example that shows a fully preserved- and/or somewhat matted-, black-coloured inner-core (which is totally undamaged). It is mounted in an (IMO) genuine silver-based frame (which has not been cleaned). The 'FKK' (ie.: 'Kriegsteilnehmerkreuz mit Schwerter') is an equally nicely preserved example that is IMO executed in bronze-coloured, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal and is a neatly maker-marked example (see pictures). It truly retains all of its somewhat darkened-, bronze-toned finish (see pictures). The 'Treuedienst Ehrenzeichen der 1. Klasse' is a stunning piece that retains most (ie. all-) of its very shiny golden-coloured finish and that retains a fully undamaged black-enamelled surface: it also retains most of its 'hochpolierte Kanten' and has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished. All three medals have a truly nice, somewhat 'matted', age-patina and are also a tiny bit dirty but were IMO never cleaned nor polished (see pictures). They all three come naturally mounted on their period-attached ribbons. The entire 'Spange' is nicely backed with a piece of bright-red-coloured- and/or smooth-like-wool and shows a (regular-type-) pin-/catch- set-up (which if of course fully functional). The neat piece shows some minimal age and/or staining caused by moderate wear and/or age. Simply an attractive example of a three-pieced 'Ordenspange' that is hard to be upgraded: simply a great example that is ideally fitted to 'decorate' almost any tunic!

Klasse' (or iron cross second-class), a WWII-period: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz ohne Schwerter' (or war-merits'-cross second class without swords), a WWI-period: 'Frontkämpferkreuz' or: 'Kriegsteilnehmerkreuz mit Schwerter') and two (civil) loyal-service-medals (or: 'Treuedienst Ehrenzeichen der 1. u. 2. Klasse' both pieces having their neat golden- and/or silver-devices attached, all five pieces in an overall nice (albeit clearly issued- ie. moderately worn-) condition.

The five ribbons are of the smaller (ie. regular-) ribbon-bar-size and measure approximately 1,7 cms. each as is more often encountered. The 'Spange' is in a very nice condition overall and is of course fully functional: it is neatly backed with a piece of black-coloured linnen (see pictures) and naturally retains its functional pin-/catch-attachment (see pictures). Simply an attractive and desirable 'Bandspange' having a not that often encountered WWI- ie. WWII-period combination: ideally fitted to 'upgrade' any tunic or to be kept in a medal ie. 'Band-/Feldspange'-collection!
Attractive, 5-pieced-, WH (Heeres) medal-bar (ie. 'Band- o. Feldspange'), showing respectively the ribbons for an: 'EK II. Kl.', a: 'KvK II.Kl. m.

Klasse' (or WH loyal-service medal as was awarded for twelve years of loyal service), a: 'Wehrmacht Dienstauszeichnung der 4. Klasse' (or WH loyal-service medal as was awarded for four years of loyal service), both having their period-attached golden- (ie. silver-) toned eagle-devices attached and a WH Czech occupation- (ie. 'Anschluss'-) medal: '1. Oktober 1938' (that was given to all members of the armed forces that participated in the German occupation of Czechoslovakia that started on: '1. Oktober 1938').

The piece retains its functional pin-/catch-attachment (see pictures). All three (firmly attached) devices show some minimal age ie. tarnish but have been nicely preserved. This particular example was IMO moderately worn ie. used: it does show some usage-marks and/or minimal aging ie. wear. Simply an attractive 5-pieced 'Band-/Feldspange': great to decorate almost any 'Heeres'-tunic!
Attractive, 5-pieced-, WH (Luftwaffe) medal-bar (ie. 'Band- o. Feldspange'), showing the ribbons for a WWI-period: 'EK II. Klasse', two WWI-period medals, a: 'WH-DA der 4.Kl.' with eagle-device attached and a 'Westwall'-medal (showing a makers'-etiket!)

Klasse' (or WH loyal-service medal as was awarded for four years of loyal service) still having its ('down-tailed'!) silver-coloured eagle-device attached and a 'Westwall'-medal. All five ribbons are of the regular (ie. smaller-), ribbon-bar-size and measure approximately 1,5 cms. each as is more often encountered (the piece has a total length of approximately 7,5 cms.). The 'Spange' comes in a nice condition overall and is neatly backed with greenish-coloured wool and shows a linnen-based makers'-etiket on its back (that reads: 'Friedr. Sedlatzek - Orden-Spezialist - Berlin' - as can be seen on the pictures). The piece regrettably misses its pin and catch-attachment (see pictures). Both attached devices show some minimal age ie. tarnish but have been nicely preserved. This particular example was IMO moderately worn ie. used: it does show some usage-marks and/or minimal aging ie. wear. Simply an attractive 5-pieced-, Luftwaffe-related 'Band-/Feldspange' that shows a not that often seen 'Sedlatzek'-makers'-etiket!
Attractive, 6-pieced-, WH (Heeres) medal-bar (ie. 'Band-/Feldspange'), showing respectively the ribbons for an: 'EK II.Kl.', a: 'KvK II.Kl. m. Schw.', an: 'Ostmedal', a WH (Heeres) 'DA der 4.

März u. Oktober 1938', as was awarded for the annexation of Austria ie. Czechoslovakia). All five ribbons (which are neatly pre-folded in a so-called: 'Austrian manner') are of the smaller, ribbon-bar size and measure approximately 1,5 cms. each as is more often encountered (the piece has a total length of approximately 9 cms.). The 'Spange' - which without any doubt was awarded to an Austrian army-soldier - comes in a very nice condition overall and is of course fully functional: it is, however, not backed but of course retains its functional pin-/catch-attachment (see pictures). This particular example was IMO clearly worn ie. used: it does show some usage-marks and/or minimal aging ie. wear. Simply an attractive and desirable-, somwhat larger-sized: 'Band-/Feldspange' that without doubt originated from an Austrian soldier!
Attractive, 6-pieced-, WWII-period ribbon-bar (ie. 'Feld- o. Bandspange'), showing respectively the ribbons for an: 'EK II. Kl.', an: 'Ost'-medal, two: 'N.S.D.A.P.-Dienst- auszeichnungen der 2. u. 3.

Bandspange'), showing respectively the ribbons for an: 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' (or iron cross second-class), an: 'Ost'-medal (ie.

All six ribbons are of the regular (ie. smaller-), ribbon-bar-size and measure approximately 1,5 cms. each as is more often encountered (the piece has a total length of approximately 9 cms.). The 'Spange' comes in a nice condition overall and is of course fully functional: it is, however, not backed but comes directly mounted on a metal-based mounting (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece retains its functional pin-/catch-attachment (see pictures). The (firmly attached) devices shows some minimal age ie. tarnish but have both been nicely preserved. This particular example was IMO clearly worn ie. used: it does show some usage-marks and/or: aging ie. wear. Simply an attractive 6-pieced 'Band-/Feldspange' that is in this particular setting not that often offered for sale: great to decorate almost any tunic!
Attractive, 7-pieced WH (Police- ie. 'Polizei'-related-) medal-bar (ie.: 'Band-/ Feldspange'), resp. depicting the ribbons for six WWI-period awards and a 'Polizei' 'DA' (having a golden-toned attached eagle-device attached!) This is an attractive - and with certainty unusually encountered! - 7-pieced, WH (Police- ie. 'Polizei'-related-) medal-bar (ie.: 'Band-/Feldspange'), respectively depicting the ribbons for four WWI-period awards (being a: WWI-period: 'Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse' (or iron cross second-class), a WWI-period: 'Frontkämpferkreuz' (ie.: 'Kriegsteilnehmerkreuz mit Schwerter') and three Austrian-based commemorative medals (all 3 having their swords-devices attached) and two (IMO WWII-period-) 'Polizei-Dienstauszeichnung- en' (one being a police loyal-service medal 1st. class awarded for 25 years of loyal-service, all seven pieces in an overall nice (albeit clearly issued- ie. moderately worn-) condition. The period-attached-, golden-toned police-device is nicely preserved but does show some moderate wear ie. tarnish. The seven ribbons are of the smaller (ie. regular-) ribbon-bar-size and measure approximately 1,7 cms. each as is more often encountered. The 'Spange' is in a very nice condition overall and is of course fully functional: it is neatly backed with police-type- (ie. greenish-coloured-) wool and naturally retains its functional pin-/catch-attachment (see pictures). Simply an attractive and desirable 'Bandspange' having a not that often encountered WWI- ie. WWII-period combination: ideally fitted to 'upgrade' any ('Polizei'-related) tunic or to be kept in a medal ie. 'Band-/Feldspange'-collection!
Attractive, albeit small-sized (and/or early-pattern!) maker- (ie. '1' and/or: 'RzM'-) marked so-called: 'SS/SA'-cap-eagle, as executed in silvered metal, often seen on early visor-caps and/or kepi's The neat piece comes IMO in a clearly worn- and/or cap-removed- condition, but is still very attractive. The swastika-area still shows most of its black-coloured colour and the piece retains all of its functional, copper-based-, prongs (which were IMO once bent but are still fully functional). The eagle retains most of its silvered finish and only shows minimal wear and/or age. The small-sized eagle - having an approximate 'wing-span' of only 4 cms. - shows very nice, pronounced detail and is just a tiny bit dirty (it was however never cleaned nor polished). It should be noted that these maker-marked examples can easily be graded 'scarce'.

'Aschenbecher'), bearing a period engraved text that reads: 'Kriegsweihnacht 1941 - Lv.Nachr.Abt.(mot.) 8, in overall very nice (albeit clearly used-) condition. The neat souvenir-piece - which measures approximately 9 x 9 cms. - was clearly presented as a Christmas-present and its 'Luftwaffe-relation' can easily be deducted from the used wording and/or eagle-device and engraved text. The piece originates from a German private household and was never before in collectors'-hands. Simply a very attractive and/or: IMO 'one-of-a-kind' item that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive, aluminium-based-, WH (Luftwaffe) 'Flieger-Ausbildung'-related ID-disc that comes stored in its period-, leather-based pouch mounted on a cord, bearing the (clearly!) stamped inscription ie. unit-signification that reads: '2/A/Flg.Ausb.

The disc comes as found and was never cleaned nor polished: it shows minimal usage (slightly torn-out holes) but is void of the soldiers'-bloodgroup-type: it does show, however, a large engraved '0' on its back (which might have been period-done by the soldier as is more often encountered). The disc came as found still stored in its period-, natural-coloured and/or: genuine leather-based pouch (which is in an equally nicely preserved condition and that shows a clear imprint of the disc it once held - see pictures). One side of the pouch comes a bit loose (but nothing shocking). The soldiers'-unit- or school (ie. the: 'Flieger-Ausbildungs-Regiment 21') was formed on 1 April 1939 and had as a 'base' the town of Magdeburg-Ost and was stopped its activities as such on 31 May, 1941: in September 1942 it was redesignated as the: 'Luftwaffe-Felddivision 6' (and as such acted as a LW-ground-troops- ie. infantry unit). Simply a very attractive- (and complete!) 'standard'-pattern-, ID-disc-set that belonged to a Luftwaffe-soldier!

The disc comes as found and was never cleaned nor polished: it shows minimal usage (slightly torn-out holes) but is void of the soldiers' bloodgroup-type (as more often). The disc came as found still stored in its period-, natural-coloured and/or: genuine leather-based pouch (which is in an equally nicely preserved condition and that shows a clear imprint of the disc it once held - see pictures). Of interest is, moreover, the fact that the soldier personalised the pouch by writing his name on the pouch (which reads: 'R. Neuboer' or alike - see pictures). Simply a very attractive- (and complete!) 'standard'-pattern ID-disc-set that belonged to a Luftwaffe 'Flak'-soldier!

The disc comes as found and was never cleaned nor polished: it shows minimal usage (slightly torn-out holes) and does show the soldiers' bloodgroup-type ('Type 0') as can be seen on the pictures. Simply an attractive,'standard'-pattern ID-disc that belonged to a Luftwaffe 'Pioniere- o. Bautruppen'-soldier!
Attractive, and IMO early-period-, 'Buntmetall'- (ie. 'Tombak'-) based example of a WH (Luftwaffe) 'Flugzeugführerabzeichen', being a maker-marked example as was produced by the: 'Imme'-company This is a truly attractive and/or very pronounced example of an (IMO) early-period- and/or: 'Buntmetall'- (ie. 'Tombak'-) based WH (Luftwaffe) 'Flugzeugführerabzeichen', being a neatly maker-marked specimen as was produced the: 'Imme'-company, that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit moderately used and/or worn-), condition. The neat piece has simply extraordinary detail and truly retains most of its original silver-toned finish (as can be seen on the pictures). The badge is as stated above IMO moderately worn but truly shows great character and/or fine, pronounced detail as to be expected by such a high-quality piece. The badge is naturally in great shape ie. order: the pin, catch- and/or both rivets are in fine (and/or fully undamaged nor repaired-) order (see pictures). The neat badge - which was recently uncovered at a private household in Germany - has IMO never been cleaned nor polished and has a neat and/or slightly tarnished 'age-patina' (as can be seen on the pictures): it was never before part of any collection! Simply a very attractive- and high-quality-produced-, Luftwaffe 'Flugzeugführerabzeichen' that is IMO priced according to its comparative rarity and/or desirability!
Attractive, black wound-badge (or: 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Schwarz') being a non-maker-marked specimen that comes as recently found still packed in its original pouch of issue by the company: 'Carl Poellath' This is an attractive- (and unusually seen ie. equally desirable!) medal-set comprising of an (IMO) only minimally used- ie. worn example of a black wound-badge (or: 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Schwarz') being a non-maker-marked specimen that comes as recently found still packed in its original (regular-sized- and scarcely seen!) pouch of issue by the company: 'Carl Poellath' based in the town of Schrobenhausen. The WB truly shows no wear nor age and retains all of its original, black-coloured- and/or fairly 'shiny' finish (as can be seen on the pictures). The badge is as stated above a non-maker-marked example. Of course, are the (regular- ie. thin-shaped-) pin and/or (typical) formed catch (-set-up) fully functional and of course present (see pictures). This piece has never been cleaned nor polished: it shows some minimal dust and/or staining as to be expected and came still packed in its period- (and/or: 'Zellstoff'-based-) beige-brown-coloured pouch. The (regular-sized-) pouch is in an equally nicely preserved condition: it is fully functional (and does show the clearly printed-) makers'-mark of the company: 'Carl Poellath' printed on its back as stated above. Simply a very attractive 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Schwarz'-set that is IMO accordingly priced!

The piece - which is void of any makers‘-designation - has an approximate height of 23 mm. and has stunning and/or pronounced detail: it comes as recently found. The piece has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished and is just a tiny bit stained ie. tarnished. A similar example is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken' lapel-pin-catalogue, wherein it is given the unique reference-number: ‘9504A‘ and an estimated value of 50 Eu. Simply a neat and detailed example of this: 'Kriegsmarine-Zivilabzeichen'!
Attractive, bright-silver-toned- and/or aluminium-based-, WH (Luftwaffe) visor- (ie. 'Schirmmützen'-) cap-eagle (being of the second pattern), which is neatly maker- (ie. 'E.Sch.L.'-) marked on its back These specific cap-eagles were intended for usage on the various WH (Luftwaffe) visor- (ie. 'Schirmmützen'-) and saw usage throughout the war. The eagle of offer here has truly great pronounced detail and naturally retains both its golden-toned- (and/or copper-based-) pins ie. prongs in place (these are IMO never bent and are naturally still in great shape and come in a fully functional condition). On the back, the eagle is nicely marked with the makers-signification: 'E.Sch.L.' (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece - which is executed in bright-coloured aluminium - has an approximate wing-span of 5,4 cms. and has a silverish-grey- and/or: minimally tarnished - 'age-patina' (it was as stated above IMO never used nor cap-attached - see pictures). It should be noted that excellent copies of this specific cap-eagle exist: this is naturally a fine and 100% genuine example. Simply a very attractive WH (Luftwaffe) visor- (ie. 'Schirmmützen'-) cap-eagle that is nowadays not that easily encountered!

Attractive, BZP (ie. 'Bahnschutz-Polizei') officers'-/ie. NCO-type side-cap (ie. 'Schiffchen') eagle, as executed in woven silver thread (ie. 'flatwire-style') on a greyish-blue-coloured- and linnen-based background This is a truly very attractive example of a so-called: BZP (ie. 'Bahnschutz-Polizei') officers'-/ie. NCO-type side-cap (ie. 'Schiffchen') eagle, as was executed in woven silverish thread (ie. 'flatwire-style') on a greyish-blue-coloured and/or linnen-based background, in overall very nice (ie. virtually mint- ie. unissued-) condition. The rarely encountered cap-eagle (which faces left as to be expected) is executed in the so-called: 'BeVo-flat-wire'-weave style and is executed in silverish thread on a (typical) bluish-grey-coloured, linnen background. These eagles were presumably intended for officer- (ie. NCO-) usage and had to be directly applied to the side-caps (ie.: 'Schiffchen') of this lesser known police-related TR-organisation. This example has truly stunning detail and simply cannot be upgraded: it has naturally never been folded nor confectioned. Simply a very attractive example that is impossible to upgrade: only the second such rare example I ever had on offer!
Attractive, commemorative- and/or copper-based-, WH (Kriegsmarine) related 'tinnie', being a non-maker-marked example depicting a ship and flying eagle (with swastika) surrounded by the text: 'Rheinisch-Westfälischer-Marinetag - Dortmund 1934' The badge (ie. 'tinnie' or: 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen') is executed in bronze-toned-, copper-based metal and depicts a ship and flying eagle-device (with swastika) surrounded by the text: 'Rheinisch-Westfälischer-Marinetag - Dortmund 1934' and was as such intended for distribution during a specific naval-related commemorative day held in the town of Dortmund. The badge - that shows some normal wear and/or moderate age - comes naturally mounted on its functional pin-/catch set-up and has IMO 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 'tinnie' retains most of its (somewhat frosted-) golden-bronze-coloured finish. I am convinced that this is a desirable and/or with certainty sought-after- and/or fairly early-period 'Marine'-related 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen'!
Attractive, DRK (ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz' or German Red Cross) nurses'-helpers-badge as was intended for a: 'Schwesternhelferin', being an example that is nicely maker-marked and that is bearing a: 'Ges.Gesch.'-patent-pending marking on its back The neat badge is made out of greyish-silver-coloured-, zinc-based metal (ie.

The badge is nicely marker-marked on the back with a makers'-designation- ie. logo (that reads IMO: 'KvA') and shows moreover a: 'Ges.Gesch.'-patent-pending mark (as can be seen on the photos). The badge is IMO only moderately worn: it has IMO never been cleaned nor polished and comes of course mounted on its functional pin-/catch (-set-up). These attractive DRK-badges were also worn by the Germanic volunteers. Simply an attractive example that is hard to be upgraded and that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive, Dutch-language-, 'SS-Leitheft' (being an example of the so-called: 'Germanische Leithefte'-series), being: 'Nr.3' of 1941 that comes in a wonderful condition These attractive 'SS-Leithefte' (or: SS-lead-booklets) were nicely illustrated periodicals (holding various photos and/or drawn illustrations on the subject matter) that were published in the period from 1934 to 1945: they only saw moderate distribution and are therefore nowadays not that easily encountered. These 'SS-leadership-magazines', as sometimes referred to, were initially only published in the German language in Berlin from 1934 onwards (and in the beginning mostly circulated among professional officers who served within the SS.) The publisher was the 'SS-Hauptamt', being the main office of the 'Reichsführer-SS', Heinrich Himmler. They were printed by a company named: 'M. Müller and Sohn' based in the town of Berlin. When war came, with need for new recruits, the 'SS-Leithefte' were also published at the various 'Germanische Leitstellen' (based in various European (capital-) cities such as: Oslo/Norway, Copenhagen/Denmark, Brussels/Anwerpen and Den Haag/The Netherlands. These specific 'foreign' examples were published in respectively Norwegian-, Danish-, Flemish- and/or: Dutch language. (There was also even an Estonian edition). The normative texts were usually translated from German, but with more room for national diversity as the war went on. The periodical's spiritual leader was called: 'Dr. Franz Riedweg', a Swiss physician who had joined the SS and became the head of Germanic Volunteer Recruiting Office, a division of the Berlin Main SS-Office. The example on offer here is Dutch-language-example (ie. example within the so-called: 'Germanische Leithefte'-series that retains all its 48-pages but shows missing staples (removed in order to overcome rust-damage). It is in a superb condition and just shows some minimal yellowing caused by decades of storage. Simply an attractive example of an: 'SS-Leitheft' (ie. 'Germanische Leitheft') that will be hard to be upgraded!
Attractive, Dutch-made-, WH (Luftwaffe) colourful and/or earthenware-based souvenir-tile (sized: 10,5 x 10,5 cms.) depicting the (semi-official-) badge from the famous: 'Nachtjagdgeschwader 1', in overall very nice and/or fully undamaged condition This is a truly very attractive - and with certainty unusually encountered! - example of a Dutch-made-, WH (Luftwaffe) colourful and/or earthenware-based souvenir-tile (sized: 10,5 x 10,5 cms.) depicting the (semi-official) badge from the famous: 'Nachtjagd- geschwader 1', next to the depicted title: 'Holland' and the year of issue: '1941', in overall very nice and/or fully undamaged condition. The neat and truly very decorative tile - which is 100% period-made and which originates from the (famous) Dutch earthenware producing company named: 'Westraven' based in the town of Utrecht - was distributed by a company called: 'Blankenvoort' in Zeist and is nicely hand-coloured and still retains a fairly 'glossy' appearance. The title is void of any damage and shows two (factory applied-) holes on the back (present in order to hang it on a wall): the original small-sized cord is also still present and in place. These 'souvenir-titles' were solely produced for the German-troops based in Holland and were quite popular amongst the members of this famous 'Nachtjagdgeschwader' who were at that time (ie. in 1941) in occupied Holland. Simply a very attractive and surely unsually encountered artifact from a famous LW 'nightfigthing unit', the 'Nachtjagdgeschwader 1', which unit was active in Northern Europe (Holland). Only the third such very attractive NJG1-related item I ever had on offer!
Attractive, early- (ie. pre-) war- pattern, WH (Heeres) 'pebbled'-style- and/or steel-based, belt-buckle ie. 'Koppelschloss' (being IMO an: 'Ausgeh'- ie. dress-version) having an additionally attached eagle-device The - as always - non-maker-marked-, belt-buckle is of a two-piece construction: the front-plate is attached to the buckle by means of four, firmly attached prongs ie. rivets. The piece shows no damage whatsoever (but has IMO been moderately used- ie. worn): the detail on the piece is absolutely nicely preserved and/or very pronounced. The piece shows a nice (somewhat shiny- and silver-coloured-) age-patina, simply caused by minimal wear and/or decades of storage (it was IMO not cleaned and is still a tiny bit dirty ie. stained, especially on its back). This type of buckle was mainly used in combination with the army-style 'going-out' dress-tunics (ie. 'Waffenröcke') and was worn througout the war. Simply an acttractive example of a 'standard-issue'-pattern Heeres-buckle!
Attractive, enamelled lapel-pin: 'Der Stahlhelm' - Bund der Frontsoldaten (Sta) - Eintrittsabzeichen 1924', which is nicely engraved: 'II.

'Buntmetall'-) based and/or enamelled lapel-pin (aka: 'Eintrittsabzeichen') that was worn by a member of the (WWI-veteran-) organisation: 'Der Stahlhelm' - Bund der Frontsoldaten (Sta)', being a beautiful example that was issued in the year: '1924', in overall very nice and/or fully undamaged, condition. The badge on offer here is a so-called: 'Eintrittsabzeichen 1924' (or 'entry-badge'), which is nicely engraved and/or dated: '26/11/24' on its back (see pictures).

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: ('26/11/24') and shows a name/unit that reads: 'II. MN. 511'. It naturally also comes on its functional pin- ie. catch(-set-up). This badge - which is the regular ie. larger sized type - 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 a very nice and most certainly decorative badge which I have IMO priced according to its very nicely preserved and/or fully undamaged condition!
Attractive, enamelled lapel-pin: 'Der Stahlhelm' - Bund der Frontsoldaten (Sta) - Eintrittsabzeichen 1924', which is nicely engraved: 'IV.

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 membership-badges). The badge comes naturally mounted on its functional pin- ie. catch(-set-up). This badge - which is the regular ie. larger sized type - is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken' lapel-pin catalogue, wherein it is given a unique reference-number (4107V) and an estimated value of 120 Eu. I deem this is a very nice and most certainly decorative badge which I have IMO priced according to its very nice condition!
Attractive, example of a 2-pieced medal-bar (or: 'Spange'), showing resp. a: WH (Heeres or KM) 'DA für IV Jahre Treue Dienste' and a Czech 'Anschluss' medal This is a truly decorative example of a 2-pieced WH (Heer or Kriegsmarine) medal-bar (ie. 'Spange'), showing respectively a WH (Heeres or Kriegsmarine) so-called: 'Dienst- auszeichnung für IV. Jahre Treue Dienste' (or or loyal-service medal for four years of loyal service) having a neat silver-coloured eagle-device attached and a Czech 'Anschluss' medal (or: 'Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938'), both medals in an overall nice, albeit moderatly used and/or worn, condition. Both medals are nice, decent examples that seem to have never been cleaned nor polished: both come in an equally tarnished- ie. dusty condition and also come mounted on their period-attached ribbons. The 'DA' has a neat frosted appearance and is somewhat dirty (ie. has a minimally darkened age-patina). The Czech 'Anschluss' medal retains most of its original, golden-toned finish: it is also a tiny bit dirty ie. tarnished, simply caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage. The 'Spange' comes naturally on its functional pin-/catch set-up and is neatly 'backed' with a piece of darker-blue-coloured wool as is more often seen. The medal-bar was recently found at a private household and was never before in a collection. The 'Spange' is most certainly a period compiled and/or worn piece and is NOT a post-war compilation: it originated from a private household and was kept as such for decades. Simply a very nice - and decorative! - 2-pieced medal-bar- ie. 'Spange' that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive, example of a: RAD (ie. 'Reichsarbeitsdienst') so-called: 'Dienst- auszeichnung 3. Stufe für Männer', as was intended for 12 years loyal-service, that comes mounted on its period piece of ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') The 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 truly retains most of its fairly 'glossy'- (ie. 'frosted'-) and/or: silver-toned finish and has IMO never been cleaned nor polished. The piece comes mounted on its period- (and/or neatly pre-confectioned-) piece of cornflower-blue coloured- and nicely pre-folded ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') (which still retains its copper-toned clip for easy tunic-attachment (see pictures). Simply a very attractive example of this: 'RAD-Dienst- auszeichnung 3. Stufe für Männer' that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive, example of a: RAD (ie. 'Reichsarbeitsdienst') so-called: 'Dienst- auszeichnung 4. Stufe für Männer', as was intended for 4 years loyal-service, that comes mounted on its period piece of ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') The 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. 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). This particular award can easily be graded virtually: 'mint-/unissued' and will be very hard to be upgraded. Simply a very attractive example of this: 'RAD-Dienstauszeichnung 4. Stufe für Männer' that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive, German-language-, 'SS-Leitheft' (being a so-called: 'SS-Leitheft-Kriegsausgabe - Jahrgang 7 - Folge 1a') that comes in a wonderful condition These attractive 'SS-Leithefte' (or: SS-lead-booklets) were nicely illustrated periodicals (holding various photos and/or drawn illustrations on the subject matter) that were published in the period from 1934 to 1945: they only saw moderate distribution and are therefore nowadays not that easily encountered. These 'SS-leadership-magazines', as sometimes referred to, were initially only published in the German language in Berlin from 1934 onwards (and in the beginning mostly circulated among professional officers who served within the SS.) The publisher was the 'SS-Hauptamt', being the main office of the 'Reichsführer-SS', Heinrich Himmler. They were printed by a company named: 'M. Müller and Sohn' based in the town of Berlin. When war came, with need for new recruits, the 'SS-Leithefte' were also published at the various 'Germanische Leitstellen' (based in various European (capital-) cities such as: Oslo/Norway, Copenhagen/Denmark, Brussels/Anwerpen and Den Haag/The Netherlands. These specific 'foreign' examples were published in respectively Norwegian-, Danish-, Flemish- and/or: Dutch language. (There was also even an Estonian edition). The normative texts were usually translated from German, but with more room for national diversity as the war went on. The periodical's spiritual leader was called: 'Dr. Franz Riedweg', a Swiss physician who had joined the SS and became the head of Germanic Volunteer Recruiting Office, a division of the Berlin Main SS-Office. The example on offer here is German-language-example (ie. so-called: 'SS-Leitheft-Kriegsausgabe - Jahrgang 7 - Folge 1a') that retains all its 24-pages but shows missing staples (removed in order to overcome rust-damage). It is in a superb condition and just shows some minimal yellowing caused by decades of storage. Simply an attractive example of an: 'SS-Leitheft' that will be hard to be upgraded!
