Very nice later war bayonet. The serial number with double ss indicates a very late 1943 production. Bakelite grips in perfect condition. Blade retains most of its blueing except for a few water marks near the tip. Matching scabbard retains most of its blueing and shows a few dents on one side (pictured) that do not interfere with the insertion of the bayonet. Nicely maker marked and dated frog that has unfortunately been damaged behind the bayonet log and has a hole in the back, probably been nailed to a wall. Nice matching bayonets are getting rare to find.
Silver plated tea spoon that has the political eagle on the top and the inscription 'Kanzlei des Fuhrers' on the back. This would have been standard issue cutlery in the Chancellery but not Hitler's personal silverware. Quite rare to come across those.
Rare WH officer car pennant. Thick embroidered double-sided white eagle with black outlines on a thick green HBT-type material. Encased in its protective celluloid frame closed by a grey leather flap with 4 snaps. Leather border of the celluloid is missing sections and threading is falling apart. Leather flap shows damage and the 2 clips have surface rust. pennant itself has been well protected. Come with the eagle section cut from another such pennant. Similar eagle design and cloth color but not same material. This one is single-sided. Protective cover is in rough shape but they are so rare, it has to be taken into consideration.
Virtually mint example of the rarest Jap variation. Blued blade by National Denki with straight quillion. 5-digit serial number. Rough finish as one can expect from these last ditch examples. Rubber scabbard/frog.
Large 12x16in document issued by a joint DAF/HJ command (as reflected in the logo) for reading achievement. Nothing glamorous but a rather rare logo to find. Document has been glued to a piece of cardboard by a previous owner to keep it from damage (obviously not my idea of doing things!). Small pieces missing, especially in the right lower corner. Nevertheless, a very presentable document.
The back to back squirrels were used between 1906 and 1921. Rarest and earliest Eickhorn logo. Crossguard marked 'OS' as well, for Osterreich (Autria), indicating this bayonet was reissued and reused after WW1. Red felt is present in the bayonet log slot. Blade itself is pristine. Outside has some tarnishing and surface rust but is really much better than it sounds.
Very rare pouch to find. Maker marked at the usual place on the back. LBA marked and dated 1939 on the center inside flap. Hard to see on picture but readable when holding it. No damage. Nice brown color.
Binos have been there and back. Well worn but intact. Optics are fine. They come with the strap but one side is broken. Also has the leather tab to attach to the button on the tunic. Rare to find those. Also comes with the mega rare bakelite optic cover that is well marked, dated and waffenamted. The bakelite case is truly stunning. Leather straps are intact (they usually get damaged) and supple. The case is in perfect condition and has a nice color.
Long binos that are well marked for night vision and made by Hensoldt. Most of these were used by the KM who need large lenses (hence the large 56mm) and night vision capability to see small masses (other ships) on a large surface of moving water. They show minimal wear and come with the strap. Lenses are extra clear with no fogging and they adjust perfectly.
One of the most common variation. Well marked. It shows light wear with about 10% paint loss. It is complete and even has the extra bulb in its proper location and it comes with a modern battery. Filters work flawlessly. Leather tab has no tears and is very supple. A very good example that will fit well on a mannequin or in a display case.
The most common type found. What makes this one interesting is that it is MINT, unissued. Complete with bulb, it retains 100% of its finish and there is no trace of wear even at the opening tab. Battery area is mint and it is obvious no battery was ever installed. Filters work flawlessly. Perfect for a pristine display.
Flask is in excellent condition. However, it is missing its braided red/black cord (easy to replace) and its small goblet. It still displays great as is. Front shows rifle, helmet and backpack and the back shows a fully combat-dressed man at attention.
Very rare honor guard frog. Thick white paint that has yellowed and cracked (but only superficial) over time. Markings are under the paint. These were used mostly by either SS or Feldhernhalle honor guards. Early aluminum rivets as it should be on those early pieces.
Good selection of shooting lanyards. 3 are maker marked. All in minty condition except the rare KM one which has wear and chafing. LW 1st degree, LW flak 2nd degree, WH 1st degree, WH Flak 2nd degree, WH 3rd, 5th and 6th degree.
Sold: LW Flak 2nd & 7th degree, KM 2nd degree, WH 2nd degree artillery

Nice matching set that would be hard to upgrade. Bag shows light soiling in some areas. Early construction with leather reinforced loops.

Also an early construction.

Very rare early armband. These came with one to four stripes indicating position (not rank) in the party. Textbook construction. It has a very clear and readable issue stamp. For the advanced collector.
Excellent example. Police decal is about 80% and national decal at over 90%. Paint is strong at 85%. It has the rare comb as most of these were removed at the beginning of the war to recycle the aluminum content. liner is intact and very supple. Chin strap is broken but present.
Choice example. Outside shell retains all its finish and the decal is at 97%. Just stunningly beautiful. Inside retains most of its decal and even has the owner's name. Liner is intact but shows normal wear. The only downer is that the chin strap has been shortened a bit and is separating in one section. It remains, however, a well-above average helmet.
it is rare to find such a large size. This must be at least a 62! Dark green soutache that indicates administration branch. Not the most glorious outfit but it makes a great display. Eagle is the officer type in aluminum thread. Cockade is the enlisted type, a common occurance as aluminum cockades were rather rare to find. Cap material is the early high quality 'Eskimo' wool. Unfortunately, it was also the most desirable material for moths to feast on and this cap suffered from a few bites on the front. Leather half moon sweatband as expected on officer caps. piping is aluminum thread.
Excellent example with no damage. Trapezoid insignia is machine-sewn. Buttons show light wear, the same consistent wear is shown on the liner, especially on the forehead area. The only marking is the size, 57, a good size.
Very rare to find higher rank KM caps. Cap has no damage except normal expected wear. Bullion insignia is hand stitched and wear is consistent with the cap. cloth-covered visor with bullion 'salad' embroidered in the visor indicating rank of kapitan-lieutnant. Only one of these caps per ship! Chin strap is the cheap ersatz type and might be a replacement but the anchor buttons are definitely original. silk liner with intact celluloid diamond but no maker mark visible.
High ranking cap for a Reichsbahn official. Eagle is the M39 type in gilt. Cockcade is a high quality embroidered wing with wheel. Chin strap is gilt and blue with gilt aluminum buttons that show a bit of wear. Cap is a high quality Erel with proper markings in the celluloid and as a bonus it has the name of the owner. No mothing or tracking.
This is the most desirable set collectors want. Large binos with eagle over M, 7x50 and blc code. As all examples encountered, they have been well used and show wear in highlights. Optics are clear and have no damage. They come with the strap that is in working condition. The case is also eagle over M marked but it is faded and needs a close look to be visible but is all there. Also maker marked beh 1943. Straps are present but broken, otherwise, the case is in excellent condition.
Nice early kit as found in vehicles. Some of the original content is present as well as other items not on the original list of content. It has the booklet which is dated 1931 as well as various items, the most interesting being the triangle to support broken arms that is illustrated. It has a removable tray as well.
Only 130,000 bayonets were ever produced by this company which ran a unique numbering system where two sets of digits were used rather than numbers and letters. One of the rarest makers and for the advanced collector. Bayonet is in near pristine condition and scabbard only shows one dent. Pictures tell the rest.
IMO one of the nicest armbands ever produced. It is silk with BeVo embroidery and is always marked. Decent example with a bit of soiling and some separation on the left side. It could not be put on a mannequin but will display fine on a flat surface.
Rare to find matching pairs. Both tabs have been removed from a shirt. Unit tab is missing the slant bar and the 'M' device is missing a prong. It hold in place fine but a thread was put to prevent movement. Rank tab has 2 pips and as a bonus, has a nice RZM tag.
Document in itself is not very glamourous: it praises a man for 30 years of faithful service in the same company.. However, the top of the document bears a stunningly nice eagle and the bottom left is embossed with a winged eagle. The frame is original and has never been messed up with. The backing has the stamp of the studio that is from the same town as the worker. Just a nice framed document.
Very rare complete set in the second highest grade. Medal has full length ribbon and shows some silver finish loss on the back, indicating this was well worn. Same with the mini. Box is maker marked to Souval.
Extremely rare to find a complete set in the highest grade. Pictures do the talking. Document is framed under glass. Medal has full ribbon. Mini has the elongated ribbon and is complete with its clasp. Box is maker marked Werner Redo. All items are in pristine condition
Stunning set rarely seen. Medal comes with all the trimmings: the ribbon with the very rare metal device, the box and the issue document. All are in great condition as shown in the pictures. As an extra bonus, the box is maker marked with a sticker.
Very rare early K98k scabbard. So early, the serial number is 3 digits with letter 'a'. This means it was made on Jan 1st! Scabbard is complete and shows most of the blue remaining in the frog area while the rest has turned to grey.
Very rare RZM made buckle by Friedrich Linden (24). See p.19 of Angolia's book on buckles. Made from zamak or kriegsmetal, it is a heavy buckle with a typical dark grey finish. This metal was quite brittle and cheap and insignias made from it tend to deteriorate quickly. A rare variation for the advanced collector.
