Kriegsmarine Blockade Runner by "Schwerin" with near perfect finish to eagle, chain wreath and ship. Includes the large matching stickpin normally found with the badge in the cased set. Stickpin finish in equally matching condition as the badge.
Kriegsmarine un-marked High Seas Fleet Badge with near perfect bright wreath and eagle gilding. Ship details sharp and well defined, as an original should be. Reverse has large dark areas to gilding due to wear and age. Pin has a slight bend, but I will leave that to the next owner should he decide to straighten. Fairly priced at Low Excellent.
Camo M-35 helmet that appears to be covered with a heavy coat of painted zimmerit. Color is a dark greyish-brown with some areas of a very subtle red. Well used, but still supple intact liner is darkly sweat stained, and about a size 58. Chin-strap is long gone. Judging from interior original paint, this was a Luftwaffe helmet. Maker was "ET66" and the lot is "7311". The first digit appears like it might be an over-stamp. Exterior painted zimmerit about 80%. A nice example of a camo helmet with a zimmerit exterior. Very Good
Quality Luftwaffe Pilot Badge with the logo of BSW in a three leaf clover indicating the maker, Bruder Schneider A.G., an accepted quality maker of badges. I don't understand why this maker put their logo up-side down, but that is the way it is always found. Pin has a couple of very minor and shallow bends that the next owner, if he desires, can attempt to straighten. I leave them as found, as I think, if minor, lends to character. The high quality of the strike, metal and construction indicates an pre or early war badge. Excellent
Bahnschutz double decal 1934 style light-weight helmet with single vent. Clean size 57 liner with minor frontal sweat stains and original chinstrap. Black paint shows moderate scattered chipping, and both decals rate better than 90% intact. I would rate this as a fairly scarce helmet, as in all my collecting/dealing years, this is only the third I have ever come across. See page 329 of Baers "The History of the German Steel Helmet" for decal illustration. Very Good
M-16 transitional army single decal helmet with the M-31 liner. Helmet shows very little use judging from the very light sweat stains in the forhead area of the marked size 57 liner. Slate gray paint is about 95%, and decal about 98%. The liner still has its original tie, and the intact chinstrap is marked "O. Schiele" city of "loburg", and dated 1937. An example of a transitional helmet in excellent condition.
Army single decal M-42 helmet with its intact original supple liner marked size 61. Original slate grey paint at about 90% and showing light surface rust where paint is missing. Decal condition is about 75% A shoe string replaces the original liner tie, and looks like it has been there forever. Markings in the rear skirt are "l (or1) 602" over what appears to be "80Sl". I cannot see any maker on the side skirt. Has a brown leather chinstrap that I do not see any markings. This large helmet that shows some use is still a respectable example of an army decaled M-42 helmet. Good
NSKK large metal insignia in a silver colored frame about 6 1/4" x 5" and about 1/2" thick. Some years ago I had an un-mounted NSKK eagle like this, and it had a single threaded bolt for attachment. This has the bolt, as the protruding end can be felt through the hard reverse of the plak. The only time I had seen another like this insignia in a photo, was one that showed it on the lower front of a truck radiator, on a most likely an NSKK truck. The framing is professional, but my guess is this was done after the war. This handsome eagle is issue-free, apart from tarnish, and the enameled swastika is chip free. The hard reverse of the plak has a small indentation in the upper right corner, and there are a few minor dings on the thickness below the frame. Low Excellent
Eva Braun original silverware and calling card. Fork, table knife and spoon, each marked for 800 silver with crescent and crown proofs. Her initials, designed by Albert Speer, are in butterfly pattern. Blade of knife has J.A.Henckels name and logo. Apart from tarnish, without issue. Calling card has some dingyness showing age. Excellent
