'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.
'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-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'.
'Variant-pattern', 'Reichssportabzeichen DRL in Bronze' (or: DRL sports'-badge in bronze) being an unusually non-marked example that is void of any text on its back The badge is of the version with swastika and retains almost all of its (minimally darkened-, golden-bronze-coloured-) finish. 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.
(Post) WWI-period: \'Frontkämpferkreuz 1914-18 mit Schwerter\' (ie.: \'Kriegsteilnehmerkreuz 1914-18 mit Schwerter\') being a maker- (ie. \'G19\'-) marked example that came stored in its luxuriously styled, bright-red-coloured etui This is an attactive example of a (post) WWI-period: 'Frontkämpferkreuz 1914-18 mit Schwerter' (ie.: 'Kriegsteilnehmerkreuz 1914-18 mit Schwerter') being a maker- (ie. 'G19'-) marked example that came stored in its luxuriously styled, bright-red-coloured etui and that comes in an overall very nicely preserved- (and IMO never worn-), condition. The attractive (and truly bronze-coloured) medal (ie.: 'Kriegsteilnehmerkreuz 1914-18 mit Schwerter') is a very nicely preserved- (and 'G19'-marked-) example that is executed in bronze-coloured-, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal. It retains all of its somewhat darkened-, bronze-toned finish (as can be seen on the pictures) and comes together with its period ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') which is stored in the specific 'compartment' in the etui. The bright-red-coloured- and semi-leather-based etui comes also in a wonderful and hardly used condition: it retains a fully preserved off-white- (ie. beige-yellowish-coloured-) and/or felt-like interior in place (which does show some minimal age and/or staining). The lid shows the (obligatory) printed text: 'Treue um Treue' followed by a facsimile signature of Paul von Hindenburg (as can be seen on the pictures). These attractive sets could be presented (or privately purchased) in the late twenties and thirties and are quite collectible and not that often seen. I deem that I have priced this attractive 'Frontkämpferkreuz 1914-18 mit Schwerter'-medal-set accordingly!
(Post) WWI-period: \'Frontkämpferkreuz 1914-18 mit Schwerter\' (ie.: \'Kriegsteilnehmerkreuz 1914-18 mit Schwerter\') being a maker- (ie. \'HKM\'-) marked example that came stored in its luxuriously-styled, black-coloured etui This is an attactive example of a (post) WWI-period: 'Frontkämpferkreuz 1914-18 mit Schwerter' (ie.: 'Kriegsteilnehmerkreuz 1914-18 mit Schwerter') being a maker- (ie. 'HKM'-) marked example that came stored in its luxuriously styled, black-coloured etui and that comes in an overall very nicely preserved- (and I deem never worn-), condition. The attractive (and truly bronze-coloured) medal (ie.: 'Kriegsteilnehmerkreuz 1914-18 mit Schwerter') is a very nicely preserved- (and 'HKM'-marked-) example that is executed in bronze-coloured-, zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal. It retains all of its somewhat darkened-, bronze-toned finish (as can be seen on the pictures) and comes together with its period ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') which is stored in the specific 'compartment' in the etui. The bright-red-coloured- and semi-leather-based etui comes also in a wonderful and hardly used condition: it retains a fully preserved off-white- (ie. beige-yellowish-coloured-) and/or felt-like interior in place (which does show some minimal age and/or staining). The lid shows the (obligatory) printed text: 'Treue um Treue' followed by a facsimile signature of Paul von Hindenburg (as can be seen on the pictures). These attractive sets could be presented (or privately purchased) in the late twenties and thirties and are quite collectible and are actually not that often seen. I deem that I have priced this attractive 'Frontkämpferkreuz 1914-18 mit Schwerter'-medal-set accordingly!
(Post)WWI-period- and neatly enamelled so-called: \'Verdienstkreuz des Bayerischer Kriegerbund\' being a nicely preserved example that bears a makers\'-desgination on its back that reads: \'Deschler u. Sohn\' - München\' This is an attractive example of a (post)WWI-period- and/or neatly (partly) enamelled so-called: 'Verdienstkreuz des Bayerischer Kriegerbund' being a nicely preserved example that bears a makers'-desgination on its back that reads: 'Deschler u. Sohn' - München' and that comes in an overall very nicely preserved- (albeit most certainly issued- and/or moderately worn-), condition. The piece is executed in silverish-toned metal (ie. 'Buntmetall') and shows a (partly) enamelled- and light-blue-coloured 'inlay' (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece shows a nice and/or minimally tarnished surface but is void of any damage: it comes mounted onto its (functional) pin- ie. pin/catch-set-up. deem that I have priced this attractive, WWI-veteran-related 'Verdienstkreuz des Bayerischer Kriegerbund' accordingly!
(Post)WWI-period- and neatly golden-toned, WWI-commerative lapel-pin entitled: \'Reichsverband Kriegsteilnehmer der Deutsch. Reichsbahn\' being a nicely preserved example that bears a makers\'-desgination on its back that reads: \'Glaser u. Sohn\' This is an attractive example of a (post)WWI-period- and/or neatly bright-golden-toned, WWI-commerative lapel-pin (ie. 'Mitgliedsabzeichen') entitled: 'Reichsverband Kriegsteilnehmer der Deutsch. Reichsbahn - 1914-18' that bears a clearly present makers'-desgination on its back that reads: 'Glaser u. Sohn - Dresden' and that comes in an overall very nicely preserved- (albeit most certainly issued- and/or moderately worn-), condition. The circular-shaped piece has an approximate diameter of 3,2 cms. and is executed in bright-golden-toned metal (ie. 'Buntmetall') and shows a typical 'Reichsbahn'-logo, two iron-crosses and shaking hands coupled by the text as mentioned above (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece shows a nice and/or minimally tarnished surface but is void of any damage: it comes mounted onto its (functional) pin- ie. pin/catch-set-up. deem that I have priced this attractive, WWI-veteran-related 'Mitgliedsabzeichen des Reichsverbandes Kriegsteilnehmer der Deutsch. Reichsbahn' accordingly!
(Post)WWI-period- ie. \'Freikorps\'-related, so-called: \'Langemarck\'-cross being a blackened-silver-toned- and/or \'Buntmetall\'-based cross (being a nicely preserved albeit non-maker-marked example that comes as recently found) This is an attractive (post)WWI-period- ie. 'Freikorps'-related, so-called: 'Langemarck'-cross being a blackened-silver-toned- and/or 'Buntmetall'-based cross (being a nicely preserved albeit non-maker-marked example that comes as recently found). These 'Langemarck'-crosses were instituted by a Köln-based veteran-organisation named the: 'Kameradschaft Grünes Korps des ehem. 26. Reserve Korps' (being a group of veterans that participated in the fierce - and famous! -battle in the village of Langemarck that took place on 21 October 1914). The 'Langemarck-Kreuz' on offer here is a black oxydised, 'Buntmetall'-based cross that was never cleaned nor polished and that comes mounted onto its (functional and unaltered) pin- ie. catch-set-up. Most- (ie. all!) of its blackened finish has been nicely preserved (as can be seen on the pictures). The award is totally void of a makers'-designation as more often encountered (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a nice occasion to acquire an attractive example of a: 'Langemarck'-cross!
(Pre) WWI-period, bordeaux-red-coloured (albeit empty) etui as was intended to store a: \'Bayern Militär-Verdienstkreuz 2. Klasse\' (that shows the makers\'-designation: \'Hofkunstanstalt Jacob Leser - Straubing\') This is a neat (pre) WWI-period, bordeaux-red-coloured (albeit empty) two-pieced etui as was intended to store a: 'Bayern Militär-Verdienstkreuz 2. Klasse' being a nicely preserved example that shows the makers'-designation: 'Hofkunstanstalt Jacob Leser - Straubing' printed onto its back and that comes in an overall nicely preserved, condition. The bordeaux-red-coloured- and/or carton-based etui comes in a nice and/or moderately used condition: it retains a fully preserved light-blue-coloured interior in place (which does show some minimal age and/or staining as can be seen on the pictures). The etui shows a somewhat faded (albeit golden-toned) printed text on the back of the outer-part that reads: 'Hofkunstanstalt Jacob Leser - Straubing' (as can be seen on the pictures). The case just needs a 'Bayern Militär-Verdienstkreuz 2. Klasse'-to complete!
(Pre) WWI-period: \'Bayern Militär-Verdienstkreuz 3. Klasse mit Schwertern\' being a nicely preserved example that came stored in its luxuriously styled, light-blue-coloured etui (marked: \'Deschler u. Sohn\' - München\') This is an attactive example of a (pre) WWI-period so-called: 'Bayern Militär-Verdienstkreuz 3. Klasse mit Schwertern' being a nicely preserved example that came stored in its luxuriously styled, light-blue-coloured etui (marked: 'Deschler u. Sohn - München') and that comes in an overall very nicely preserved, condition. The attractive (and truly reddish-bronze-coloured) award is a nicely preserved example that retains all of its somewhat darkened, bronze-toned finish (as can be seen on the pictures) and comes together with its period ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') which is stored in the specific 'top-compartment' in the etui. The light-blue-coloured- and/or semi-leather-based etui comes also in a nice and moderately used condition: it retains a fully preserved darker-blue-coloured- and/or felt-like interior in place (which does show some minimal age and/or staining). The etui shows a makers-designation 'ribbon' that reads: 'Deschler u. Sohn' - München'. The top of the etui shows the (obligatory) silverish-coloured, printed text: 'Bayr. M.V.Kr. 3.Kl.' (as can be seen on the pictures). I deem that I have priced this attractive 'Bayern Militär-Verdienstkreuz'-medal-set accordingly!
1944-pattern-, EM-type-, Waffen-SS cuff-title (ie. \'Ärmelstreifen\'), as executed in neat \'BeVo\'-weave pattern, as was intended for a member within the: \'SS-Gebirgsjäger-Regiment 12 \"Michael Gaißmair\" This is a truly very attractive - and naturally 100% original and truly rarely encountered! - so-called: 1944-pattern, Waffen-SS, enlisted-mens'-type cuff-title (ie. 'Ärmelstreifen') depicting the ('BeVo'-) machine-woven Latin-script text in silver-greyish-coloured linnen, as was intended for usage by a soldier ie. NCO who served within the: 'SS-Gebirgsjäger-Regiment 12 "Michael Gaißmair" (being a regiment within the '6. SS-Gebirgs-Division "Nord"), in overall very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued-) condition. The truly full-length cuff-title (approx. 48/49 cms. sized in length) has the typical 'salt and pepper-styled'-reverse and shows all details of an original, period-produced specimen as to be expected. This armband was produced by the: 'Bandfabrik Ewald Vorsteher' (aka: 'BeVo') as based in the town of Wuppertal and shows the interwoven company-name on one of the ends (something that is not always the case - 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. The piece was with certainty never worn nor tunic-attached and can easily be graded 'mint-/unissued'. It should be noted that this specific regimental cuff-title is one of the rarest examples of the extensive 'BeVo'-weave pattern series. Simply a great opportunity to acquire an attractive and very rarely encountered Waffen-SS 'BeVo'-type cuff-title for a competitive price: I have seen these "Michael Gaißmair"-cuff-titles sell for much more than my asking-price!
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'.
2-pieced, WH (Heeres, LW etc.) medal-bar (ie. \'Band- o. Feldspange\') showing resp. the ribbons for a: Czech \'Anschluss\'-medal (having a detailed and larger-sized \'Prager Burg-Spange\'-miniature attached) and an: \'EK II. Kl.\' The attractive - and actually in this format scarcely encountered! - two-pieced, WH (Heeres, LW etc.) medal-bar (ie. 'Band- o. Feldspange') is showing respectively the ribbons for a: Czech 'Anschluss'-medal (or: 'Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938', as was awarded for the annexation of Czechoslovakia) having a detailed (and somewhat larger-sized) 'Prager Burg-Spange'-miniature attached and an: 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' (or: Iron Cross second-class). Both ribbons are of the larger (ie. regular-) ribbon-bar-size and measure approximately 2,5 cms. each as is more often encountered (the 'Bandspange' has a total length of approximately 5 cms. as can be seen on the pictures). The 'Spange' comes in a nice condition overall and is of course fully functional: it is not 'backed' but comes mounted onto a metal 'backing-plate' (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece retains its functional pin-/catch-attachment. The very detailed- and firmly attached 'Prager Burg'-device shows some minimal age ie. tarnish but has been nicely preserved. This particular example was ony moderately worn ie. used: it does show some usage-marks and/or minimal aging ie. wear. Simply an attractive 2-pieced-, WH-'Band-/Feldspange' having a not that often seen combination: great to decorate almost any tunic!
2-pieced-, WH (Heeres ie. KM etc.) medal-bar (ie. \'Feld- o. Bandspange\') showing resp. the ribbons for a: \'WH-DA der 3. Kl.\' with (golden-coloured-) eagle-device attached and a: \'Westwall\'-medal This is a neat example of a 2-pieced-, WWII-period ribbon-bar (ie. 'Feld- o. Bandspange') respectively showing the ribbons for a WH (Heeres o. Kriegsmarine): 'Dienstauszeichnung für 12 Jahre Treue Dienste' (or: 12-years loyal-service medal having a detailed, golden-toned eagle-device attached) and a: 'Deutsches Schutzwall Ehrenzeichen' (aka: 'Westwall'-medal), both ribbons coming in an overall nice- (albeit used and/or moderately worn-), condition. The - detailed! - (eagle-) device has a neat and/or minimally 'frosted' albeit detailed appearance: it retains a nice and/or bright-coloured age-patina. The piece - with shows both its bars in the 'standard'- ie. regular (2,5 cm. wide-) version - is fully functional and comes mounted on its functional pin-/catch set-up: it is not 'backed' but comes mounted on a chrome-based, 'backing-plate' as more often. Simply an attractive 'Feld- o. Bandspange': ideal to upgrade or decorate almost any TR-related tunic!
3-pieced WH (Heeres, LW etc.) medal-bar (ie. \'Band- o. Feldspange\') showing resp. the ribbons for a: \'KvK II. Kl. m. S.\', an: Austrian \'Anschluss\'-medal and a: Czech \'Anschluss\'-medal (having a detailed \'Prager Burg-Spange\'-miniature attached) The attractive - and actually in this format scarcely encountered! - three-pieced, WH (Heeres, LW etc.) medal-bar (ie. 'Band- o. Feldspange') is showing respectively the ribbons for a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz II. Klasse mit Schwerter' (or: war-merits' cross 2nd class with swords), an Austrian 'Anschluss'-medal (or: 'Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. März 1938', as was awarded for the annexation of Austria) and a Czech 'Anschluss'-medal (or: 'Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938', as was awarded for the annexation of Czechoslovakia) having a detailed 'Prager Burg-Spange'-miniature attached. All three ribbons are of the smaller (ie. regular-) ribbon-bar-size and measure approximately 1,5 cms. each as is more often encountered (the 'Bandspange' has a total length of approximately 4,5 cms. as can be seen on the pictures). The 'Spange' comes in a nice condition overall and is of course fully functional: it is not 'backed' but comes mounted onto a chrome-based 'backing-plate' (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece retains its functional pin-/catch-attachment. The very detailed- and firmly attached 'Prager Burg'-device shows some minimal age ie. tarnish but has been nicely preserved.

S.\', an: \'Ost-medal\' and a: Czech \'Anschluss\'-medal (having a detailed \'Prager Burg-Spange\'-miniature attached) The attractive - and actually in this format scarcely encountered! - three-pieced, WH (Heeres, LW etc.) medal-bar (ie. 'Band- o. Feldspange') is showing respectively the ribbons for a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz II. Klasse mit Schwerter' (or: war-merits' cross 2nd class with swords), a: 'Medaille Winterschlacht im Osten 1941-42' (or: Eastern Front- ie. 'Ost'-medal) and a Czech 'Anschluss'-medal (or: 'Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938', as was awarded for the annexation of Czechoslovakia) having a detailed 'Prager Burg-Spange'-miniature attached. All three ribbons are of the smaller (ie. regular-) ribbon-bar-size and measure approximately 1,5 cms. each as is more often encountered (the 'Bandspange' has a total length of approximately 3,5 cms. as can be seen on the pictures). The 'Spange' comes in a nice condition overall and is of course fully functional: it is nicely 'backed' with a piece of black-coloured wool (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece retains its functional pin-/catch-attachment. The very detailed- and firmly attached 'Prager Burg'-device shows some minimal age ie. tarnish but has been nicely preserved. This particular example was ony moderately worn ie. used: it does show some usage-marks and/or minimal aging ie. wear. Simply an attractive 3-pieced-, WH-'Band-/Feldspange' having a not that often seen combination: great to decorate almost any tunic!

Stufe' (or: police loyal service medal of the 2nd class as was awarded for 18 years of service) having a detailed (and regular-sized) police-eagle-miniature attached. All three ribbons are of the larger (ie. regular-) ribbon-bar-size and measure approximately 1,5 cms. each as is more often encountered (the 'Bandspange' has a total length of approximately 4,5 cms. as can be seen on the pictures). The 'Spange' comes in a nice condition overall and is of course fully functional: it is nicely 'backed' with field-grey-coloured wool (as can be seen on the pictures).

3-pieced-, WH (Heeres- ie. KM etc.) medal-bar (ie. \'Band- o. Feldspange\') showing the ribbons for an: \'Ost\'-medal, a: \'WH-Dienstauszeichnung 2. Stufe\' (as was intended for 4 years of loyal-service) and a: \'Westwall\'-medal This is a neat three-pieced-, WH (Heeres- ie. KM etc.) medal-bar (ie. 'Band- o. Feldspange') showing respectively the ribbons for a: 'Medaille Winterschlacht im Osten 1941-42' (or: Eastern Front- ie. 'Ost'-medal), a WH (Heeres o. Kriegsmarine): 'Dienstauszeichnung für 4 Jahre Treue Dienste' (or: 4-years loyal-service medal that is void of an attached eagle-device) and a: a: 'Deutsches Schutzwall Ehrenzeichen' (aka: 'Westwall'-medal) all three ribbons coming in an overall nice- (albeit used and/or moderately worn-), condition. All three ribbons are of the smaller (ie. regular-), ribbon-bar-size and measure approximately 1,5 cms. each as is more often encountered (the 'Bandspange' has a total length of approximately 4,5 cms. as can be seen on the pictures). The 'Spange' comes in a nice condition overall and is of course fully functional: it is 'backed' with a piece of grass-green-coloured wool (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece retains its functional pin-/catch-attachment (see pictures). 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-, WH-'Band-/Feldspange' having a not that often seen combination: great to decorate almost any TR-period tunic!
4-pieced WH (Heer) ‘\'Panzer-Aufklärungs\'’-related award-document grouping, all four documents as awarded to the ‘(Ober-)Gefreiten’ Lang, member within the: ‘4./Pz,-Aufklärungs-Abt. 9’ (part of the: ‘9.Pz-Division’) This is a truly nice - and fairly unusually encountered! - 4-pieced, WH (Heer) ‘Panzer-Aufklärungs’-related award-document grouping, all four documents, as awarded to the ‘(Ober-)Gefreiten’ Werner Lang, member within the: ‘4./Panzer-Aufklärungs-Abteilung 9’ (part of the: ‘9.Panzer-Division’), all four documents in a nice and/or undamaged (albeit partly ‘hole-punched’) condition. The set includes respectively the documents for a: ‘Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz’ (or black wound-badge), an ‘Ost’-medal (or ‘Medaille Winterschlacht im Osten’), a neat (and not that often seen!) so-called: ‘Kraftfahrbewährungsabzeichen in Gold’ (or golden-class drivers’ badge) and a neat ‘Besitzzeugnis’ as issued for the Bulgarian ‘Soldatenkreuz des Tapferkeitsordens IV. Klasse’. All four documents are in a wonderfull condition overall: they are not denazified and all nicely ink-stamped and/or signed: all four A-5-sized documents are just once folded and as stated ‘hole-punched’ and are a bit yellowed by normal age ie. storage for decades. The first document in the set is a ‘standard’ and/or A5-sized award-document, as intended for a: ‘Medaille Winterschlacht im Osten 1941/42’ (or ‘Ostmedal’), which was awarded to Lang on 1 August 1942. This document is nicely signed by a (regrettably unidentified) ‘Chefarzt u. Oberstabsarzt’. It is nicely - and clearly! - ink-stamped with a stamp that reads: ‘Reservelazarett ...’ (unreadable). The second document in the set is a neat - and rarely observed! - award-document as issued for the Bulgarian ‘Soldatenkreuz des Tapferkeitsordens 4. Klasse’ - which Lang obtained on 20 June 1942. This is also a neat A5-sized and/or pre-printed example executed in German language (or ‘Vordrückte Besitzzeugnis’). This document is clearly signed by Langs’ commanding officer being an unidentified: ‘Oberleutnant u. Batl.-Kommandeur’. This example is also clearly (red) ink-stamped with a stamp that reads: ‘Krd.Schütz.Btl.59’ (being a motorcycle-related unit!). The document was most certainly handed out (on 20 June 1942) ‘at the front’ (something that can easily be deducted from the typed wording: ‘Im Felde’). The third document in the set is an award-document (or ‘Vorbedrückte Besitzzeugnis’), as intended for the: ‘Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz’ (or black wound-badge), as awarded to Lang on 25 July 1943 (for injuries that he got on 25 July 1943). At that time he served within the: ‘Panzer-Aufklärungs-Abteilung 9’. It is nicely signed by an (unidentified) ‘Oberstabsarzt u. Chefarzt’ and is nicely - and clearly! - ink-stamped: ‘Reserve-Lazarett Jauer’. The fourth - and last - document in the set is a neat - and actually rarely observed! - IMO ‘provisional’ and/or machine-typed award-document (or ‘Besitzzeugnis’) as issued for a: ‘Kraftfahrbewährungsabzeichen in Gold’ (or golden-class drivers’ badge), which Lang obtained on 2 July 1943. This example is also clearly (purple) ink-stamped with a stamp that reads: Panzer-Aufklärungs-Abteilung 9’ and is neatly signed by Langs’ commanding-officer being a (unidentified) ‘Hauptmann u. Abteilungsleiter’. At that time he served within the: ‘4./Panzer-Aufklärungs-Abteilung 9’. This document was most certainly also handed-out (on 2 July 1943) ‘at the front’ (something that can easily be deducted from the typed wording: ‘Im Felde’). I deem that this neat little grouping most certainly merits further investigation. This neat medium-sized grouping on offer here shows the complete army-career (including unit-transfers) of a reconnaisance-Panzer-soldier (most likely a: ‘Kradschützen’-soldier or motor-cyclist). The set was never before in a collection and originates from a private house-hold. Simply a nice and desirable WH (Heer) ‘Panzer-Aufklärungs’-related award-document grouping that is IMO accordingly priced!
4-pieced WH (Heeres, SS, KM etc.) medal-bar (ie. \'Ordenspange\') showing resp. a: \'KvK II. Kl. m. Schw.\', an: \'Ost\'-medal, a: \'Treuedienst Ehrenzeichen 2. Klasse\' and a: \'Kriegsverdienstmedaille 1939\' The attractive - and actually in this combination scarcely encountered! - WH (Heeres, SS, KM etc.) four-pieced medal-bar (ie. 'Ordenspange') shows respectively a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse mit Schwertern' (or: war-merits'-cross second class with swords), a: 'Medaille Winterschlacht im Osten 1941-42' (or: Eastern Front- ie. 'Ost'- medal), a: 'Treuedienst Ehrenzeichen 2. Klasse' (or: silver-class, loyal-service-medal for 25 yrs. of civil loyal-service) and a: 'Kriegsverdienstmedaille 1939' all four awards coming in an overall nice- (albeit moderatly used and/or worn-), condition. All four awards are nicely preserved examples that seem to have never been cleaned nor polished: they come in an equally minimally tarnished- ie. dusty condition and naturally also come mounted on their period ribbons. The 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse mit Schwertern' is a nicely preserved example as executed in golden-bronze-toned 'Buntmetall'. The 'Ost'-medal is executed in typical 'zinc-' (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal and medal retains an attractive (ie. blue-greyish-coloured-) and/or fairly 'matted' age-patina and has never been cleaned nor polished and therefore are details and/or finish still very nice and/or crisp. The 'Treuedienst Ehrenzeichen 2. Klasse' has never been cleaned and has an immaculate (ie. fully undamaged) enamelled swastika-area. The bronze-golden-toned (and I deem zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based: 'Kriegsverdienstmedaille 1939' is a nicely preserved example that is just a tiny bit stained. The 'Spange' comes naturally mounted on its functional pin- ie. catch set-up and is nicely 'backed' with a piece of field-grey-coloured wool as is more often seen (as can be seen on the pictures). The medal-bar was recently found at a private household and was never before part of a collection. The 'Spange' is most certainly a period-compiled- and/or worn piece and is NOT a post-war compilation or alike: it originated from a private household and was kept as such for decades. Simply a very attractive - and truly decorative! - four-pieced, medal-bar- ie. 'Spange' that is in my opinon accordingly priced!
4-pieced WH (Luftwaffe) \'cyphered\'-, officers-pattern shoulderboard-pair and dito collar-tabs as piped in the rust-brown-coloured branchcolour, as was intended for musicians- ie. band-leaders (or: \'Musikmeister im Offiziersrang\') This is a truly very attractive - and/or fully matching and with certainty very rarely encountered! - 4-pieced WH (Luftwaffe) 'cyphered'-, officers-pattern shoulderboard-pair and dito collar-tabs, all four pieces as piped in the light-brown- (ie. 'hellbrauner'-) coloured branchcolour as was intended for musicians- ie. band-leaders (or: 'Musikmeister im Offiziersrang') and that comes in overall very nice- (IMO issued- albeit never worn-), condition. The attractive shoulderboards - which are constructed from the silver- and bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured 'braid' and having the light-brown-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'underlays' - come in an excellent condition overall and are simply hard to be upgraded. The 'upperdecks' show the (obligatory) integrated 'stripes' of bright-red-coloured 'braid' as to be expected. The shoulderboards - which measure approximately 11,5 cms. in length each - show two identical (neatly darker golden-toned- and/or matching-) so-called: 'Lyra'-cyphers and a single pip each attached (which all four retain most of their golden-bronze toned finish) and were as such intended for an officer with the rank of: 'Oberleutnant' (ie. lieutnant first-class). The boards come with their typical officers'-type tongues attached (as can be seen on the pictures). The pair came together with a neatly hand-embroidered pair of (also light-brown-piped) collar-tabs (ie. 'Kragenspiegel'). These are 'backed' with beige-coloured 'Buckram' and show the additional hand-embroidered 'Lyra'-cyphers (as can be seen on the pictures). All four insignia are as stated above piped in the light-brown- (ie. 'hellbrauner'-) coloured branchcolour something that indicates that the officer who wore this set belonged to the: 'Nachrichten-Truppen' (or: signal troops). Simply a superb - and truly rarely encountered! - 'Luftwaffe', commised-officers'-type shoulderboard- and collar-tab-set that will be very hard to be upgraded. Only the first such rare and complete insignia-set I ever had on offer!
4-pieced-, WH (Heeres o. KM) medal-bar (ie. \'Feld- o. Bandspange\') showing resp. the ribbons for a: \'KvK II. Kl. m. Schw.\', a: \'WH-DA der 4. Kl.\' (with eagle-device), a: Czech \'Anschluss\'-medal (with \'Prager Burg-Spange\'-miniature attached This is a neat example of a four-pieced, ribbon-bar (ie. 'Feld- o. Bandspange') respectively showing the ribbons for a: 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz II. Klasse mit Schwerter' (or: war-merits' cross 2nd class with swords), a: 'WH-Dienstauszeichnung für 4 Jahre Treue Dienste' (or: loyal-service medal as was awarded for four years of loyal service) that comes with a silver-coloured eagle-device attached,. a: Czech 'Anschluss'-medal (with 'Prager Burg-Spange'-miniature attached) and an unknown award (possibly a WWI-period service-medal). All four ribbons are of the smaller (ie. regular-) ribbon-bar-size and measure approximately 1,5 cms. each as is more often encountered (the 'Bandspange' has a total length of approximately 6 cms. as can be seen on the pictures). The 'Spange' comes in a nice condition overall and is of course fully functional: it is , however, not 'backed' (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece retains its functional pin-/catch-attachment. The very detailed- and firmly attached 'Prager Burg'-device shows some minimal age ie. tarnish but has been nicely preserved. This particular example was ony moderately worn ie. used: it does show some usage-marks and/or minimal aging ie. wear. Simply an attractive 4-pieced-, WH-'Band-/Feldspange' having a not that often seen combination: great to decorate almost any tunic!

All three ribbons are of the smaller (ie. regular-), ribbon-bar-size and measure approximately 1,5 cms. each as is more often encountered (the 'Bandspange' has a total length of approximately 6,0 cms. as can be seen on the pictures). The 'Spange' comes in a nice condition overall and is of course fully functional: it is neatly 'backed' with a piece of black-coloured wool (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece retains its functional pin-/catch-attachment (see pictures). This particular example was IMO moderately worn ie. used: it does show some usage-marks and/or minimal aging ie. wear.

The piece retains its functional pin-/catch-attachment (see pictures). This particular example was IMO moderately worn ie. used: it does show some usage-marks and/or minimal aging ie. wear.

All five ribbons are of the larger (ie. regular-) ribbon-bar-size and measure approximately 1,5 cms. each as is more often encountered (the 'Bandspange' has a total length of approximately 7,5 cms. as can be seen on the pictures). The 'Spange' comes in a nice condition overall and is of course fully functional: it is nicely 'backed' with field-grey-coloured wool (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece retains its functional pin-/catch-attachment. The very detailed- and firmly attached devices show some minimal age ie. tarnish but have been nicely preserved.

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.) and is not 'backed' with a piece of wool but comes mounted on a metal-based 'backing-plate' (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece does show some minimal age, wear and/or staining. Simply a neat, five-pieced- 'Feld- o. Bandspange' that can be used for almost any tunic!
7-pieced-, WH (LW) medal-bar showing the ribbons for a WWI-period: \'EK II.Kl.\', a: \'KvK II.Kl.\', a: \'FKK m. S.\', two \'WH-DA der 3. u. 4.

The - detailed! - (eagle-) devices have a neat and/or minimally 'frosted' albeit detailed appearance: they all retain a nice and/or somewhat tarnished age-patina. The piece - with shows all seven bars in the 'standard'- ie. regular (1,5 cms. wide-) version and that is confectioned in a 'regular manner' - is fully functional and comes mounted onto its regular pin- ie. pin/catch set-up: the piece is, however, not 'backed' as is more often seen. The piece originated from a private household in Germany and was never before in collectors'-hands. It should be noted that these fairly longer-sized 'Luftwaffe'-related 'Feld- o. Bandspangen' are not that easily encountered and can easily be graded 'very scarce'. Simply a very attractive (and long-sized!) WWI (ie. WWII-) period: Luftwaffe-related 'Feld- o. Bandspange': ideal to upgrade or decorate almost any TR-related 'Luftwaffe'-tunic!
8-pieced-, WH (LW) medal-bar (ie. \'Feld- o. Bandspange\') showing resp. the ribbons for a WWI-period: \'EK II.Kl.\', a: \'FKK m. S.\', two \'WH-DA der 3. u. 4.

The piece originated from a private household in Germany and was never before in collectors'-hands. Simply a very attractive (and long-sized!) WWI (ie. WWII-) period: 'Feld- o.

8-pieced-, WWI- (ie. WWII-) period ribbon-bar (ie. \'Feld- o. Bandspange\'), showing resp. the ribbons for (amongst others) an: \'EK II. Klasse\', a: \'Frontkämpferkreuz 1914-18 mit Schw.\', a: \'KvK II. Kl. m. Schw.\' and two \'WH-DA\' This is a truly very attractive 8-pieced-, WWI- (ie. WWII-) period ribbon-bar (ie. 'Feld- o.

(or: 'Kriegsteilnehmerkreuz 1914-18 mit Schwerter'), two so-called: 'WH-Dienstauszeichnungen der 2. u. 3. Klasse' (or WH loyal-service-medals as were respectively awarded for twelve- ie. eigtheen years of loyal-service both having a (bright-golden-coloured-) eagle-device period-attached) and two (Austrian) service-medals. All eigth ribbons are of the regular (ie. smaller-), ribbon-bar-size and measure approximately 1 cms. each (as is more often encountered). The 'Spange' comes in a very nice condition overall and is neatly 'backed' with a piece of purple-coloured wool (as is more often seen). The firmly attached (and detailed!) devices show some minimal age ie. tarnish but have all been very nicely preserved. This particular example was IMO moderately worn ie. used: it does show some usage-marks and/or minimal aging ie. wear. Simply a very attractive 'Feld- o. Bandspange' having an unusual combination and that presumably belonged to an Austrian WWI and WWII-veteran: great to decorate almost any WWI (ie. WWII-) tunic!
9-pieced-, WH (LW) medal-bar (ie. \'Feld- o. Bandspange\') showing resp. the ribbons for a WWI-period: \'EK II.Kl.\', a: \'FKK m. S.\', two \'WH-DA der 1. u. 2. Kl.\' (having their golden-toned eagle-devices attached) and 5 other WWI-period awards This is a neat example of a nine-pieced-, WWI (ie. WWII-) period- (and WH 'Luftwaffe'-related) ribbon-bar (ie. 'Feld- o. Bandspange') respectively showing the ribbons for a: WWI-period: 'Eisernes Kreuz II. Klasse' (or: iron cross 2nd class), a WWI-period: 'Frontkämpferkreuz 1914-18' (ie.: 'Kriegsteilnehmerkreuz 1914-18 mit Schwerter'), two WH (Heeres o. KM) 'Dienstauszeichnungen' (for IMO resp. 18 and 25 years of loyal-service) both pieces having their golden-toned eagle-device period-attached) and five other (pre) WWI-period, commemorative awards (some of which are showing their period-applied devices attaches). The piece comes in an overall very nice- (albeit used and/or moderately worn-), condition. The - detailed! - (eagle-) devices have a neat and/or minimally 'frosted' albeit detailed appearance: they both retain a nice and/or bright-coloured age-patina. The piece - with shows all nine bars in the 'standard'- ie. regular (1,5 cms. wide-) version and that is confectioned in a 'regular manner' - is fully functional and comes mounted on its functional pin- and/or catch set-up: the piece is, moreover, nicely 'backed' with a piece of field-grey-coloured wool as is more often seen. The piece originated from a private household in Germany and was never before in collectors-hands: I deem that this particular piece belonged to high-grade LW-officer (maybe even a general-officer!) and would certainly merit further investigative work: it might even well be that the officers'-name might be uncovered. Simply a very attractive (and long-sized!) WWI (ie. WWII-) period: 'Feld- o. Bandspange': ideal to upgrade or decorate almost any TR-related 'Luftwaffe'-tunic!
A4-sized WH (Kriegsmarine) award-document for a: \'‘WH-Dienstauszeichnung IV. Kl.’\', as issued to the: \'‘Oberstabsmatrosen\'’ Leschinsky, who served within the: ‘\'I. Marineunteroffizierlehrabteilung’\' This is a nice example of a decorative (and A-4 sized) 'standard’ - albeit variant- and/or early type! - A4-sized WH (Reichs- ie. Kriegsmarine) award-document as issued on 2 October 1936 for a: ‘WH-Dienstauszeichnung IV. Kl.’ (or loyal service-medal of the fourth class) to the: ‘Oberstabsmatrosen’ named: Ernst Leschinsky, who served within the: ‘I. Marineunteroffizierlehrabteilung’, in overall nice, albeit used condition. The document - which shows a neat pre-printed eagle-device on the top as more often encountered - and is in an overall nice, unfolded and not hole-punched, condition: it is also not denazified and just somewhat dirty and stained by normal storage. It is nicely - and clearly! - signed by the: ‘II.Admiral der Ostsee’ being the: ‘Konteradmiral’ Otto von Schrader (18-03-1888 - 19-07-1945). Von Schrader was a highly decorated naval career-officer who was awarded the ‘Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes’ (or knights cross of the iron cross) on 19 August 1943. The document is also nicely (blue) ink-stamped with an early-type stamp that clearly reads: ‘Reichsmarine - II.Admiral der Ostsee - Schiffstammdivision’. Simply a nice 'standard' - and very early ie. pre-war - ‘Reichs- ie. Kriegsmarine’ so-called: ‘Dienstauszeichnung IV Klasse’ award-document as awarded to an ‘Oberstabsmatrosen’ who joined the naval-forces as early as 1932!
A5-sized \'DRK\'-related award-document & insignia set, as intended for a 5-year loyal-service stripe (ie.: \'DRK Auszeichnungsborte\') as issued to the: \'DRK-Helfer\' Alois Sauer This is a truly very nice - and actually never before encountered! - A5-sized and neatly pre-printed example of a: 'DRK'- (ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz' or German red cross-) related award-document (and accompanying insignia ie. stripe or 'Borte'!) as intended for a 5-year loyal-service stripe (ie. so-called: 'DRK Auszeichnungsborte'), as issued on 30 January 1940, to the: 'DRK-Helfer' Alois Sauer, member withing the medical-institute: 'Stockheim (Kst.Mellrichstadt)', in overall very nice and totally undamaged condition. The neat pre-printed- (ie. 'Vorbedrücktes'-) document shows the typical 'DRK'-logo in the upper right-corner and was apparently issued on behalf of the: 'Stellvertretende Landesführer des Landesstelle XIII', being the: 'DRK-Generalführer' named: Dr. Konrad. The document bears a (facsimile) signature of this DRK general-officer. The document is also - clearly! - ink-stamped with a (blue-/red coloured-) ink-stamp that reads: 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz - Landesstelle XIII'. Although the fact that the stripe ie. 'Borte' was issued to the male-nurse Sauer with effect on 30 January 1940, the document bears a later date, namely: 1 September 1942 (something that was not unusal). As stated is the document accompanied by its (never mounted- nor used-) insignia ie. stripe (or 'Borte'): this piece measures 10,5 cms. in length and is neatly woven in silver-braid having a red-coloured centre-strip as per regulation. These insignia were worn on the lower right-arm of the greyish-black- coloured uniforms. As stated is the document in an overall very nice condition: it is not denazified nor damaged and has just been once-foilded. I deem that this very interesting DRK-award-document-/insignia grouping would most certainly merit further investigative work: only the first such set I ever had on offer!

'virtually mint- ie. unissued'- and/or never cap-attached-), condition. The pieces are executed in 'stamped' ie. pressed alumnium-based metal and truly retain all of their red- and/or black-painted colour as to be expected. Next to the clearly present makers'-designation do the badges also bear a: 'Ges.Gesch.'-patent-pending marking and/or date of production ('1938') (as can be seen on the pictures). Naturally, do they have all their two (never bent) aluminium-based prongs present and can as such easily be mounted onto a RAD-cap. The badges truly show great pronounced detail and will be simply impossible to be upgraded: my asking-price is naturally intended for a single specimen!
Aluminium-based EM- (ie. NCO-) pattern, RAD (ie. \'Reichsarbeitsdienst\') cap-badge being a neatly maker- (ie. \'F.& B.\'-) marked- and/or very detailed example that was specifically intended for usage on the RAD-caps (aka: \'Kaffeebohnen\') This is a neat, aluminium-based EM- (ie.

The piece is executed in 'stamped' (ie. pressed) alumnium-based metal and truly retains all of its red- and/or black-painted colour as to be expected. Next to the clearly present makers'-designation does the badge also bear a: 'Ges.Gesch.'-patent-pending marking and/or date of production ('1938') (as can be seen on the pictures). The badge comes with both its (never bent) aluminium-based prongs present and in place and can as such easily be mounted onto a RAD-cap. The badge truly shows great pronounced detail and will be simply impossible to be upgraded!
Aluminium-based EM- (ie. NCO-) pattern-, RAD (ie. \'Reichsarbeitsdienst\') cap-badge, being a maker- (ie. \'F.L.L.\'-) marked- and/or very detailed example, that was specifically intended for usage on the RAD-caps (aka: \'Kaffeebohnen\') This is a truly attractive - and in this minty- ie. unissued condition not that easily encountered! - example of a pre-war-period- and aluminium-based enlisted mens'- (ie. NCO-) pattern-, RAD (ie. 'Reichsarbeitsdienst') cap-badge, being a maker- (ie. 'F.L.L.'-) marked-, '1936'-dated and/or very detailed example, that was specifically intended for usage on the RAD-caps (aka: 'Kaffeebohnen') and that comes in a very nice (ie. virtually mint- ie. unissued-), condition. The piece is executed in 'stamped' ie. pressed alumnium-based metal and retains all of its red- and/or black-painted colour as to be expected.

Aluminium-based WH (Heeres) ID-disc (ie. \'Erkennungsmarke\') bearing the clearly stamped unit-designation: \'5./I.R. 82\' and that comes mounted on its period cord as issued and/or worn This is a neat example of a 'standard-issue'-pattern, aluminium-based WH (Heeres) - and/or: 'Infanterie'-related - ID-disc (ie. 'Erkennungsmarke') bearing the clearly stamped unit-designation that reads: '5./I.R. 82' (and as such being a disc that was intended for a soldier who served within the: fifth company of the: 'Infanterie-Regiment 82' or: infantry-regiment numbered: '82' and that comes mounted on its period cord as issued and/or worn. The disc - which is executed in a clear and fine letter-type and that also shows the soldiers' blood-group-type (Type 'B') - is still a tiny bit dirty and/or stained but was never cleaned nor polished. It comes as worn and/or stored for decades and originates from a private household somewhere in Germany. Simply a very nice and honest 'Infanterie'-related ID-disc that belonged to a soldier (ie. NCO or officer) who served within a specific infantry-related unit. I deem that this neat disc is accodingly priced!
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, commemorative \'Seefahrt ist Not!\'-day-badge (ie. \'tinnie\') as was issued to commemorate gathering ie. event entitled: \'Tag der deutschen Seefahrt - 25. 26.5-1935\' This is a neat, commemorative so-called: 'Seefahrt ist Not!'-day-badge (ie. 'tinnie') as was issued to commemorate gathering ie. event entitled: 'Tag der deutschen Seefahrt - 25. 26.5-1935' and that comes in an overall nice (albeit issued ie. moderately worn-), condition. The detailed and/or pronounced (oval-shaped) badge - which is executed in molded, silver-toned metal (ie. aluminium) - shows great detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished (it does, however, show some minimal scratches and/or wear on its front). The piece depicts a detailed sailing-vessel wit above an eagle-and-swastika-device surrounded by the above-mentioned text. The badge - which shows a clearly present makers'-designation: 'Dr. Franke & Co. G.M.B.H. - Lüdenscheid' superimposed on its back - comes naturally mounted on its (functional) pin-/catch set-up. Simply a nice 'tinnie' that is accordingly priced!
Aluminium-based, EM- (ie. NCO-) pattern, RAD (ie. \'Reichsarbeitsdienst\') cap-badge being a maker- (ie. \'FW-37\'-) marked- and/or very detailed example that was specifically intended for usage on the RAD-caps (aka: \'Kaffeebohnen\') This is a neat - and moderately used- ie. carefully cap-removed - example of an aluminium-based, enlisted-mens'- (ie.

I deem once cap-attached-), condition. The detailed piece is executed in aluminium-based metal and truly retains all of its red- and/or black-painted colour as to be expected (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece - which according to the designation can be dated around the year 1937 - is just a tiny bit dirty (ie. dusty). Naturally, are both - and also aluminium-based - prongs present and as such can the piece be easily remounted onto a RAD-cap. The badge truly shows great pronounced detail and will be hard to be upgraded!
Aluminium-based, EM- (ie. NCO-) pattern, RAD (ie. \'Reichsarbeitsdienst\') cap-badge being a neatly maker- (ie. \'W.F.-38\'-) marked- and/or very detailed example that was specifically intended for usage on the RAD-caps (aka: \'Kaffeebohnen\') I recently two - fully identical! - examples of the silverish-golden-toned- and/or aluminium-based- (and neatly anodized!) enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCO-) pattern so-called: RAD (ie. 'Reichsarbeitsdienst') cap-badge being both neatly maker- (ie. 'W.F.-38'-) marked- and/or very detailed examples that were specifically intended for usage on the RAD-caps (aka: 'Kaffeebohnen') and that come both in a very nice- (ie. 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'- and/or never cap-attached-), condition. Both pieces are executed in 'stamped' ie. pressed alumnium-based metal and truly retain all of their red- and/or black-painted colour as to be expected. Next to the clearly present makers'-designation do the badges also bear a: 'Ges.Gesch.'-patent-pending marking and/or date of production ('1938') (as can be seen on the pictures).

'A.& S.'-) marked and/or very detailed example that was specifically intended for usage on the typical RAD-caps (aka: 'Kaffeebohnen') and that comes in an overall nice (ie. IMO used- and/or once cap-attached-), condition. The piece is executed in 'stamped', aluminium-based metal and retains all its red- and/or black-painted colour as to be expected: it is just a bit dirty ie. stained (as can be seen on the pictures). Naturally, are both metal- (ie. copper-) based prongs present and still functional. The badge - which is an example that was produced by the: 'Assmann & Söhne'-company and that also shows a 'Ges.Gesch.'-patent-pending marking on its back - truly shows great pronounced detail and will be very hard to be upgraded!

The attractive disc comes in an overall nice condition (and is executed in an attractive letter-type!) and shows the clear evidence of having been used ie. worn (see pictures). The disc is void of a bearers'-blood-group-type something that was more often seen. The disc - which comes mounted onto its period cord as worn - was never cleaned nor polished (it is still a bit stained and/or dirty). The disc originates from a larger ID-disc collection that was compiled over many years. Simply an attractive and honest WH (Luftwaffe-) ie. 'Flieger-Nachrichten'-related ID-disc that is IMO accordingly priced!
Aluminium-based-, WH (LW-) ie. \'Fallschirmjäger\'-related ID-disc, bearing the clearly stamped- and/or: \'coded\' unit-designation that reads: \'63125\' (and as such belonging to a soldier ie. NCO who served within the: \'1./Fsch.Jg.Rgt.1 “Stendal”) This is an attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - example of a silver-coloured- and/or alumnium-based, WH (Luftwaffe-) ie. 'Fallschirmjäger'-related ID-disc (ie. 'Erkennungsmarke') that came mounted onto its period (black-coloured) cord and that that is bearing the clearly stamped- (and/or: 'coded') unit-designation (aka: 'MOB-liste-Nummerierung') that reads: '63125' (and as such belonging to a paratrooper-soldier (or NCO ie. officer) who served within the: '1./Fsch.Jg.Rgt.1 “Stendal”) (or: first company of the 'Fallschirmjäger-Regiment 1', based in the town of Stendal). The disc comes in an overall very nice (albeit clearly used ie. worn-), condition (and is executed in an attractive letter-type!) and shows the clear evidence of having been used ie. worn (see pictures). The disc shows the bearers'-blood-group-type (Type 0) (something that was more often but not always seen on these 'coded' ID-discs and shows a clearly stamped bearers-numeral that reads: '1220'). Moreover, does it show a stamped capital 'T'-character (for which I could not find an explanation). The disc was never cleaned nor polished (it is still a bit stained and/or dirty). The disc originates from a private household where it was recently uncovered. The back shows a 'scratched-out' name or alike. Simply a very attractive and honest 'coded' WH (Luftwaffe-) ie. 'Fallschirmjäger'-related ID-disc that is IMO priced according to its unmistaken rarity and/or desirability!
Aluminium-based-, \'Polizei\' visor-cap eagle, being a maker- (ie. \'F.K.S.\'-) marked example for usage on the \'Polizei\' (ie. police) visor-caps (ie. \'Schirmmützen\') and that comes in a \'virtually mint- ie. unissued\' condition This is an aluminium-based-, 'Polizei' visor-cap eagle being a nicely maker- (ie. 'F.K.S.'-) marked example, as was intended for usage on the various 'Polizei' (ie. police) visor-caps (ie. 'Schirmmützen') and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'-), condition. The very detailed piece is executed in bright-silver-coloured aluminium and retains both its two (copper-based-) prongs (which were never bent and which are naturally still functional). The detail on the fairly 'frosted' piece is simply extraordinary: it just shows some minimal dust ie. tarnish simply caused by decades of storage only. Hard to find a more attractive example for a more interesting price!

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 (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: \'BA\' (as was intended for the Russian volunteers serving within the \'Don Cossacks\') The very attractive arm-shield shows the red- and blue-coloured shield with above the interwoven 'Cyrillic' characters: 'BA' (done in silver-white linnen). This particular example is neatly woven in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave technique and comes as being straightly 'cut-off from the roll': it can be graded: 'virtually mint'. These - original - 'official' arm-shields as executed in 'BeVo'-type weave (ie. German manufacture by the company of 'BeVo') can be easily considered 'very scarce'. I deem that I have priced this (virtually mint-/unissued-) example accordingly. Simply a neat example of a Cossack-related arm-shield: one of the more harder to encounter specimen of the colourful series!
Armshield as executed in the neat \'BeVo\'-weave pattern, depicting the interwoven \'Cyrillic\' characters: \'BA\' (as was intended for the Russian volunteers serving within the \'Kuban Cossacks\') The shield comes in a trimmed condition and shows the red- and blue-coloured shield with above the interwoven 'Cyrillic' characters: 'BA' (done in silver-white linnen). I deem that this example was truly worn as such: it does show some minimal age and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a scarcely encountered piece of eastern-volunteer-related insignia: one of the more harder to encounter specimen of the colourful series!
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 (IMO) DAF- (ie. \'Deutsches Arbeitsfront\') related day-badge (ie. \'tinnie\'), as was issued to commemorate the: \'Saarkundgebung - Oberhausen-Reid - 10.6.1934\' This is an attractive (IMO) DAF- (ie. 'Deutsches Arbeitsfront') related 'tinnie' (ie. 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen') that was issued to commemorate a specific DAF-rally ie. gathering named the: 'Saarkundgebung - Oberhausen-Reid - 10.6.1934' and that comes in an overall very nice (albeit issued ie. moderately worn-), condition. The detailed and/or pronounced badge - which is executed in silverish-coloured (ie. tin-based) metal - truly shows extraordinary detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished. The (non-maker-marked-) piece depicts a swasitka upon which a worker (loosing his chains) is pictured and showing the text: 'Saarkundgebung - Oberhausen-Reid - 10.6.1934'. The badge comes naturally mounted on its (functional) pin-/catch set-up. Simply an attractive, DAF-related 'tinnie' ie. 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen'!
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 issued and/or tunic-removed - example of a cloth version of a WH (Heeres) \'Deutsches Kreuz im Gold\' (or DKiG ie. German Cross in gold), that comes in an overall very nice, albeit used- ie. worn condition This is a truly attractive - albeit clearly issued and/or tunic-removed - example of a cloth version of a WH (Heeres) 'Deutsches Kreuz im Gold' (or DKiG ie. German Cross in gold), that comes in an overall very nice, albeit used- ie. moderately worn-, condition. The piece - which is neatly hand-embroidered in various types of bullion - has a (fully undamaged!) field-grey (ie. typical 'Heeres'- or 'Waffen-SS'-type-) woolen-based background, signifying that it was a piece that was awarded to a 'Heeres' (ie. 'Waffen-SS'-) member. The piece shows some minimal age ie. wear but is totally void of any damage. It shows a golden-toned (ie. metal-based) wreath as to be expected. The piece - which is void of an inked makers’-mark as more often encountered - is, however, not 'backed' (something that is more often seen). It also shows the signs of once having been tunic-attached. Simply a very nice example of a high-class award - only second in grade to a Knights Cross or 'Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes'! - that IMO is accordingly priced. Simply a stunning example that is actually hard to be upgraded!
Attractive - albeit clearly issued and/or tunic-removed! - example of a cloth version of a WH (Heeres) \'Deutsches Kreuz im Gold\' (or DKiG ie. German Cross in gold) that comes in an overall very nice, albeit used- ie. worn condition This is a truly attractive - albeit clearly issued and/or tunic-removed! - example of a cloth version of a WH (Heeres) 'Deutsches Kreuz im Gold' (or DKiG ie.

'Waffen-SS'-) member. The piece shows some minimal age ie. wear but is totally void of any damage. It shows a golden-toned (ie. metal-based) wreath as to be expected. The piece - which shows an inked makers'-mark (ie. logo) on its back as is more often encountered - is, nicely 'backed' with black-coloured paper (something that is more often seen). It also shows the signs of once having been tunic-attached. Simply a very nice example of a high-class award - only second in grade to a Knights Cross or 'Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes'! - that IMO is accordingly priced. Simply a stunning example that is actually very hard to be upgraded!
Attractive - albeit clearly issued and/or tunic-removed! - example of a cloth version of a WH (Heeres) \'Deutsches Kreuz im Gold\' (or DKiG ie.

German Cross in gold), that comes in an overall nice, albeit clearly used- ie. moderately worn-, condition. The piece - which is neatly hand-embroidered in various types of bullion - has a (minimally damaged) field-grey-coloured (ie. typical 'Heeres'- or 'Waffen-SS'-type-) woolen-based background, signifying that it was a piece that was awarded to a 'Heeres' (ie. 'Waffen-SS'-) member. The piece shows evident age ie. wear but is void of any real damage. It shows a golden-toned (ie. metal-based) wreath as to be expected. The piece has lost its (IMO once present) paper-based 'backing' (something that is more often seen). It also shows the clear signs of once having been tunic-attached. Still a nice example of a high-class award - only second in grade to a Knights Cross or 'Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes'! - that is IMO accordingly priced.
Attractive - albeit clearly issued and/or tunic-removed! - example of a cloth version of a WH (Luftwaffe) \'Deutsches Kreuz im Gold\' (ie. DKiG or German Cross in gold) that comes in an overall very nice, albeit moderately used- ie. worn, condition This is a truly attractive - albeit clearly issued and/or tunic-removed! - example of a cloth version of a WH (Luftwaffe) 'Deutsches Kreuz im Gold in Stoff' (or: cloth-based DKiG ie. German Cross in gold) that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit moderately used- ie. worn- and/or carefully tunic-removed-), condition. The piece - which is neatly hand-embroidered in various types of bullion - has a (fully undamaged!) bluish-grey-coloured- (ie. typical 'Luftwaffe'-type-) woolen-based background, signifying that it was a piece that was awarded to a 'Luftwaffe'-soldier. The piece shows some minimal age ie. wear but is totally void of any real damage. It shows a golden-toned (ie. metal-based) wreath as to be expected. The piece - which is void of an inked makers'-mark (ie. logo) on its back as is more often encountered - is, nicely 'backed' with black-coloured 'backing'-paper (something that is more often seen). It also shows the obvious signs of having been once tunic-attached. Simply a very nice example of a high-class award - only second in grade to a Knights Cross or 'Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes'! - that is I deem accordingly priced. Simply a stunning 'Luftwaffe'-type example that is actually very hard to be upgraded!

The piece - which is void of an inked makers'-mark (ie. logo) on its back as is more often encountered - is, nicely 'backed' with greyish-black-coloured paper (something that is more often seen). It also shows the obvious signs of having been once tunic-attached. Simply a very nice example of a high-class award - only second in grade to a Knights Cross or 'Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes'! - that IMO is accordingly priced. Simply a stunning 'Luftwaffe'-type example that is actually very hard to be upgraded!
Attractive - albeit clearly issued- ie. worn! - example of a WH (Heeres) field-grey-coloured- and/or aluminium-based belt-buckle, being a maker- (ie. \'Richard Sieper u. S.\'-) marked example that comes mounted on its leather-based tab This is an attractive - albeit clearly issued- ie. worn! - example of a WH (Heeres) field-grey-coloured- and/or alumnium-based belt-buckle, being a neatly maker- (ie. 'Richard Sieper u. Söhne'-) marked and/or: '1938'-dated example that comes mounted on its natural-coloured leather-based tab and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly issued- ie. worn-), condition. The buckle was with certainty issued and worn: it only retains the remains of its field-grey-coloured finish but was never (recently) cleaned nor polished (as can be seen on the pictures). The inside of the buckle - which shows the (vague) impressed makers'-designation: 'R.S.&S.' - shows some obvious dust caused by over more than 70 years of storage. The leather-based tab is naturally also still fully functional and souple: it shows the oval-shaped 'Richard Sieper u. Söhne - Lüdensheid - 1938'-stamp (as can be seen on the pictures) and comes in an equally nicely preserved condition overall (it was IMO never greased nor oiled but does show some age ie. staining). The piece was recently found at a private household and was never before part of a collection. Simply an attractive, 'Richard Sieper u. Söhne'-marked-, 'Heeres'-example that is IMO priced according to its worn condition!
Attractive - albeit clearly used but nevertheless fairly scarcely encountered! - so-called: \'HJ\' (\'Hitlerjugend\') district-triangle (ie. \'Gebietsdreieck\') entitled: \'Mitte Sachsen\' This is a 'male'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in yellowish-golden-coloured linnen on a black-coloured- (and also linnen-based-) background. This example has lost its paper-based so-called: 'RzM-etiket' over the years and was a piece that was clearly worn ie. once tunic-attached: the stitching-remains are still clearly present. It does, however, shows some minimal age and/or staining, simply caused by decades of storage and moderate wear - see pictures. The triangle on offer here is one of the more scarcely encountered examples of the extensive 'Gebietsdreiecken'-series. In any case an attractive, male-type 'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') district-triangle that is IMO priced according to its comparative scarcity and/or desirability!
Attractive - albeit clearly used but nevertheless very rarely encountered! - so-called: \'HJ\' (\'Hitlerjugend\') district-triangle (ie. \'Gebietsdreieck\') entitled: \'Ost Pommern\' This is a 'male'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in yellowish-golden-coloured linnen on a black-coloured- (and also linnen-based-) background. This example has lost its paper-based so-called: 'RzM-etiket' over the years and was a piece that was clearly worn ie. once tunic-attached: the stitching-remains are still clearly present. It does, however, shows some minimal age and/or staining, simply caused by decades of storage and moderate wear - see pictures. The triangle on offer here is one of the more obscure- and rarely encountered examples of the extensive 'Gebietsdreiecken'-series. In any case an attractive, male-type 'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') district-triangle that is IMO priced according to its comparative rarity and/or desirability!
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 clearly worn! - maker- (ie. \'L/11\'-) marked example of a black-class wound-badge (or: \'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Schwarz\') as being produced by the maker: \'Wilhelm Deumer\' The black-class (and non-magnetic) WB on offer here is only moderately used and does shows some moderate wear and/or aging (as can be seen on the pictures). The badge truly retains most of its original, black-coloured- and/or somewhat 'shiny' finish: it was simply nicely preserved over the years. The badge is as stated neatly maker-marked with the makers'-designation: 'L/11' on its back (as can be seen on the pictures) signifying that it deals with an early-period (and 'Buntmetall'-based) specimen that was produced by the: 'Wilhelm Deumer'-company as based in the town of Lüdenscheid. Of course, are the (regular- ie. thin-shaped-) 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. Hard to upgrade this moderately used ie. worn example!
Attractive - albeit empty - WH (Heeres- ie. Waffen-SS-) carton-based medal-pouch nicely 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 scarcely encountered item: a WH (Heeres- ie. Waffen-SS) carton-based medal-pouch, nicely 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) and that comes in an overall very nice (albeit moderately used and/or I deem issued-), condition. The pouch shows a red-coloured ink-stamp on its front and is additionally marked on its back with the expected 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 scarcity!
Attractive - albeit issued and/or tunic-removed! - example of a cloth version of a WH (Heeres- or: Waffen-SS) \'Deutsches Kreuz im Gold\' (ie. DKiG or German Cross in gold) that comes in an overall very nice, albeit clearly used- ie. worn, condition This is a truly attractive - albeit clearly issued and/or most cerainly tunic-removed! - example of a cloth version of a WH (Heeres- or: Waffen-SS) 'Deutsches Kreuz im Gold in Stoff' (or: cloth-based DKiG ie. German Cross in gold) that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit clearly used- ie. worn- and/or carefully tunic-removed-), condition. The piece - which is neatly hand-embroidered in various types of bullion and linnen-based thread - has a field-grey-coloured- (ie. somewhat stained-) woolen-based background, signifying that it was a piece that was awarded to a 'Heeres or Waffen-SS'-soldier. The piece shows clear age ie. wear but is void of any real damage (some tiny bits of the outer thin-shaped- and/or braid-based piping are however missing (as can be seen on the pictures). It shows a golden-toned (ie. metal-based) wreath as to be expected. The piece - which is void of an inked makers'-mark (ie. logo) on its back as is more often encountered - is not 'backed' (something that is more often seen). It also shows the obvious signs of having been once tunic-attached. Simply an attractive and clearly worn example of a high-class award - only second in grade to a Knights Cross or 'Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes'! - that is I deem 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 minimally mis-matched - pair of early- (ie. pre-war-) period, WH (Heeres) black woolen-based- and/or bright-pink-piped \'Panzer\'-collar-tabs, each having an \'aluminium\'-based skull-device (ie. \'Totenkopf\') period-attached The attractive - and IMO quite early- ie. pre-war-period! - collar-tab- (ie. 'Kragenspiegel'-) pair is as stated above minimally mis-matched: both tabs show an aluminium-based (and identical!) skull-device, period-attached: both skulls have both their (typical, early- and copper-based-) prongs in place and are still firmly attached onto the tabs. For some unknown reason does one of the tabs misses its 'backing': the other tab shows the brownish-yellow-coloured- (and/or: typical 'buckram'-based-) 'backing' as to be expected. The pair - which has the neat (early- ie. pre-war-period-) woolen-type- and/or bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured piping attached - comes in a clearly issued- and/or once tunic-attached-, condition: the set was once stitched onto a tunic and was carefully tunic-removed (it still shows some remains of the stitching as can be seen on the pictures). As such, it would be an excellent pair to restore any black-coloured-, early- (ie. pre-) war-period Panzer so-called: 'wrap-around'-tunic. This pair was recently found at a German private household and was never before in collectors'-hands. Simply a very attractive, original and fully matching, early- ie. pre-war-period-, 'Panzer'-collar-tab-set that can easily be graded 'rare' and that is nowadays almost impossible to encounter!
Attractive - albeit minimally mis-matched - pair of later-war-period, WH (Heeres) so-called: \'M44\'-style, \'simplified\'-, EM-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for usage by a: \'Soldat eines Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs-Abteilung o. Rgts.\' The neat straps - which are approximately 11 cms. sized in length each as more often encountered - have the 'standard-type'- and/or: typical brownish-green-like-, field-grey coloured and/or: woolen-based 'upperdecks' and show the neat golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured- and/or 'silk-like'-type piping ie. branchcolour, 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 IMO never used nor worn and can easily be graded 'virtually mint ie. unissued'. 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: 'Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs-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 Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs-Abteilung o. Regiments': great to complete any M44-model tunic or to be stored in a shoulderstrap-collection. The pair is as stated above minimally mis-matched: they differ in tiny detail something that is more often seen with these M44-pattern shoulderstraps. It will be hard to upgrade this attractive pair!
Attractive - albeit minimally mis-matched - pair of 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 Infanterie-Regiments 115\' The attractive - and 'text-book' albeit minimally mis-matched - WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap-pair is piped in the desirable white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour and measures approximately 12 cms. in length. The straps have the desirable white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured- and/or: desirable silk-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: '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 typical 'standard-issued' examples that have the field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks' that show the bluish-grey-coloured- (ie. sub-dued-type) NCO-braid attached: they were I deem 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 onto their functional tongues and came with a (matching) pair of (field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based-) so-called: shoulderstrap-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' come in a wonderful- and/or totally undamaged condition and will be hard to be upgraded (as can be seen on the pictures). These desirable 'M43'-pattern, army-infantry-related NCO-type shoulderstraps as piped in the 'weisser'-coloured branchcolour can nowadays easily be graded 'fairly scarce'. Simply an attractive pair that belonged to an: 'Unteroffizier des Infanterie-Regiments 115'!
Attractive - albeit minimally mis-matched - pair of WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-war-) period, \'M36\'-pattern- (ie. rounded-styled), \'cyphered\' shoulderstraps, as was intended for an: \'Unteroffizier des Artillerie-Beobachtungs-Abteilungs 32\' This is truly attractive - albeit regrettably minimally mis-matched but nevertheless still truly rarely encountered! - pair of WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-war-) period-, so-called: 'M36'-pattern- (ie. rounded-styled), 'cyphered' shoulderstraps as piped in the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and clearly used by! - an: 'Unteroffizier des Artillerie-Beobachtungs-Abteilungs 32' (or junior-sergeant who served within the artillery-observers regiment ie. unit, numbered: '32') and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit moderately used ie. worn-), condition. The straps - which are both approximately 11,1 cms. sized in length - have the 'standard-type' and/or darker-green-coloured, smooth-woolen-based 'upperdecks' and show the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured (and woolen-type) piping attached. Both shoulderstraps show the neat (machine-embroidered by means of so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei'-) Gothic-styled-, so-called: 'B'-cyphers and/or: '3'- and '2'-numerals. Next to this they show the silver-coloured NCO-braid attached denoting the NCOs-rank of: 'Unteroffizier'. 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 above only moderate 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 NCO-type shoulderstrap-pair that is IMO priced according to its obvious desirability and/or unmistaken rarity!
Attractive - albeit minimally mis-matched - pair of WH (Heeres), IMO mid-war-period (ie. \'M43\'-pattern-) enlisted-mens\'-type shoulderstraps, as piped in the bright-yellow-coloured branchcolour, as was intended for a: \'Soldat der Nachrichten-Truppen\' The attractive shoulderstraps - which have the field-grey-coloured- and/or: typical, woolen-based 'upperdecks' as to be expected - have the desirable bright-yellow- (ie. 'zitronengelbener'-) and/or 'silk-like'-type piping attached and measure approximately 11,7 cms. in length each. The straps come naturally mounted on their original tongues and are in an overall nice ie. fully 'text-book' condition overall: the straps show some minimal age, wear and/or obvious staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The straps - which were intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der Nachrichten-Truppen' (or: simple army signals'-soldier) - show only minimal usage and/or wear (they are however not damaged or alike: they just show the minimal signs of having been used). The pair is as stated above minimally mis-matched but was with certainly always together and was worn as such as a pair. It should be noted that these bright-yellow-piped-, enlisted-mens'-type-, 'Nachrichten'-related shoulderstraps are quite desirable and can nowadays easily be graded 'scarce': I deem that this attractive army-signals pair is accordingly priced!

It should be noted that these white-piped-, enlisted-mens'-type-, 'Infanterie'-related shoulderstraps are very desirable and can nowadays easily be graded 'scarce': this is one of those shoulderstrap-pairs that every collector is nowaydays searching-for but that is simply not that often offered for sale!
Attractive - albeit minimally mismatched - pair of N.S.K.K. (or: \'National Socialistisches Kraftfahr Korps\') shoulderboards as piped in the bright-red coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by the Dutch NSKK-volunteers This is an attractive - and fairly scarcely encountered! - Dutch volunteer-related so-called: N.S.K.K. (or: 'National Socialistisches Kraftfahr Korps') shoulderboard-pair as piped in the bright-red (ie. 'hochroter'-) branchcolour, that comes in an overall nice (albeit clearly used- and/or tunic-removed-), condition. The boards have the typical silver-black-coloured- and/or: 'checkered' upperdecks (ie. tops) and show the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) and 'rayon'-based piping ie. branchcolour attached as to be expected (see pictures). The boards - which measure 12,5 cms. in length each as more often seen - are moderately used and/or worn: they shows some moderate age, wear and/or staining. An example of these boards is also figured in the Bender reference-book entitled: 'Foreign Legions of the Third Reich - Volume 2: Belgium, Great Britain, Holland, Italy and Spain' by David Littlejohn: it is pictured on the top of page 207 of this excellent book). Simply an attractive Dutch-volunteer-related N.S.K.K. (or: 'National Socialistisches Kraftfahr Korps') shoulderboard-pair: only the first such rare pair I did ever had on offer!
Attractive - albeit minimally mismatched - pair of N.S.K.K. (or: \'National Socialistisches Kraftfahr Korps\') shoulderboards as piped in the bright-yellow coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by the Flemish NSKK-volunteers This is an attractive - and fairly scarcely encountered! - Belgian (ie. Flemish-) volunteer-related so-called: N.S.K.K. (or: 'National Socialistisches Kraftfahr Korps') shoulderboard-pair as piped in the bright-yellow (ie.

An example of these boards is also figured in the Bender reference-book entitled: 'Foreign Legions of the Third Reich - Volume 2: Belgium, Great Britain, Holland, Italy and Spain' by David Littlejohn: it is pictured on the bottom of page 114 of this excellent book). Simply an attractive Flemish-volunteer-related N.S.K.K. (or: 'National Socialistisches Kraftfahr Korps') shoulderboard-pair: only the first such rare pair I did ever had on offer!
Attractive - albeit minimally mismatched - pair of WH (Heeres), mid-war-period (ie. \'M43\'-type-) EM-type shoulderstraps that comes with its attached \'Übershube\'-pair, as was intended for a: \'Soldat des Nachschub-Abts. 12\' This is an attractive - albeit minimally mismatched - pair of WH (Heeres), IMO mid-war-period (ie. 'M43'-type-) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps as was piped in the neat bright-blue- (ie. 'kornblumenblauer'-) coloured branchcolour that comes with its attached 'Übershube'-pair, as was intended for - and clearly worn by! - a: 'Soldat des Heeres-Nachschub-Abteilungs 12' (or simple soldier who served within an army, transport-unit, numbered: '12') and that comes in an overall nice (and IMO moderately used ie. worn-), condition. The shoulderstraps - which have the field-grey coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks' - have the bright-blue- (ie. 'kornblumenblauer'-) coloured and/or: 'silk-like'-type piping attached and measure approximately 11,7 cms. in length each. They come mounted on their original tongues and come in a nice, ie. fully 'text-book' condition overall. The pair was with certainly always together and was without doubt worn as a pair (this although they are minimally mismatched in minor details). The straps came mounted with a (matching) pair of (field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based-) so-called: slip-ons (ie. 'Übershuben') attached, bearing both the signification: 'XII' (as executed in equally bright-blue- (ie. 'kornblumenblauer'-) 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: they show some wear and are somewhat stained - see pictures. Simply an attractive pair of moderately used 'Soldat des Heeres-Nachschub-Abteilungs 12'-shoulderstraps that can easily serve to complete any mid-war 'Heeres'-type tunic or that can be stored in any shoulderstrap-collection!
Attractive - albeit minimally mismatched! - pair of WH (Heeres), IMO early-war- ie. pre-war-period (ie. \'M36\'-pattern- and/or rounded-style-) EM-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for a: \'Soldat der Nachrichten-Truppen\' This is an attractive - albeit minimally mismatched - pair of WH (Heeres), IMO early-war- (ie. pre-war-period ie. 'M36'-pattern- and/or rounded-style-) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps as piped in the neat bright-yellow- (ie. 'zitronengelbener'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der Nachrichten-Truppen' (or simple, army-signals-soldier) and that comes in an overall nice (ie. IMO clearly issued- ie. moderately worn-), condition. The neat schoulderstraps - which have the 'standard'-pattern-, darker-green coloured- and/or smooth-woolen-based 'upperdecks' - have the bright-yellow- (ie. 'zitronengelbener'-) coloured- and woolen-type- piping attached (see pictures). The straps measure approximately 11,6 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 in a nice, ie. fully 'text-book' condition, overall. The pair shows - as stated above - regular wear, age and/or minimal staining but is totally void of any damage (as can be seen on the pictures). The straps were found together and were most certainly worn as such as a pair: they only differ in minimal detail from eachother (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a great occasion to acquire an attractive and with certainty desirable 'Nachrichten'-related-, enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap-pair that was never before in collectors'-hands and that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - albeit minimally worn! - example of a cloth version of a WH (Heeres o. Waffen-SS) \'Deutsches Kreuz im Gold\' (ie. DKiG or German Cross in gold) that comes in an overall very nice, condition This is a truly attractive - and I deem minimally worn - example of a cloth version of a WH (Heeres o. Waffen-SS) 'Deutsches Kreuz im Gold in Stoff' (or: cloth-based DKiG ie. German Cross in gold) that comes in an overall very nice- (I deem surely used- and/or carefully tunic-removed-), condition. The piece - which is neatly hand-embroidered in various types of bullion - has a (fully undamaged!) field-grey-coloured- (ie. typical 'Heeres'- ie. 'Waffen-SS'-type-) woolen-based background, signifying that it was a piece that was awarded to a 'Heeres'- ie. 'Waffen-SS'-soldier. The piece shows some minimal age and minimal wear but is totally void of any real damage or alike: it does, however, show a tiny albeit non-disturbing moth-hole (as can be seen on the 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 (ie. logo) on its back as is more often encountered - and is nicely 'backed' with a piece of black-coloured 'backing'-paper (something that is more often seen). Simply a nice example of a high-class award - only second in grade to a Knights Cross or 'Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes'! - that is I deem accordingly priced!
Attractive - albeit minimally worn! - example of a cloth version of a WH (Luftwaffe) \'Deutsches Kreuz im Gold\' (ie. DKiG or German Cross in gold) that comes in an overall very nice, condition This is a truly attractive - and I deem minimally worn - example of a cloth version of a WH (Luftwaffe) 'Deutsches Kreuz im Gold in Stoff' (or: cloth-based DKiG ie. German Cross in gold) that comes in an overall very nice- (I deem hardly used-), condition. The piece - which is neatly hand-embroidered in various types of bullion - has a (fully undamaged!) bluish-grey-coloured- (ie. typical 'Luftwaffe'-type-) felt-woolen-based background, signifying that it was a piece that was awarded to a 'Luftwaffe'-soldier. The piece shows some minimal age and minimal wear but is totally void of any damage or alike. It shows a bright-golden-toned (ie. metal-based) wreath as to be expected. The piece - which is void of an inked makers'-mark (ie. logo) on its back as is more often encountered - is not 'backed' with a piece of 'backing'-paper (something that is more often seen). Simply a nice example of a high-class award - only second in grade to a Knights Cross or 'Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes'! - that is I deem accordingly priced!
Attractive - albeit mis-matched - pair of WH (Heeres), early-war-period-, NCO-type \'cyphered\' shoulderstraps, as was intended for a: \'Stabsfeldwebel eines Panzer-Lehr-Regiments\' This is a truly very attractive - albeit regrettably mis-matched but nevertheless rarely encountered! - pair of WH (Heeres), IMO early- (ie. pre-) war-period-, NCO-type 'cyphered' 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: 'Stabsfeldwebel eines Panzer-Lehr-Regiments' (or: senior-sergeant ie. 'Spiess' and most likely an instructor who served within a: 'Panzer-Lehr'-regiment), that comes in an overall nice (albeit clearly used ie. worn-), condition. The shoulderstraps - which are approximately 12 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 woolen-type piping attached (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 some moderate usage and/or wear (some minor wear, staining and/or dust is visible and/or present). The straps show the (standard-pattern) silver-NCO braid attached and show a matching set of (aluminium-based, Gothic-styled) 'L'-'cyphers' and six (also aluminium-based) pips attached, denoting the unusually seen rank of: 'Hauptfeldwebel o. Spiess'. It should be noted that all NCO-pattern, 'Panzer'-shoulderstraps (as were specifically intended for usage on the black-coloured 'Panzer wrap-around'-tunics) can easily be regarded 'rare' (even more so when they are neatly 'cyphered' as this pair). This particular pair - which is as stated above not completely matching but that was most certainly worn as such as a pair - originated from a larger cloth- and/or shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. In any case a very attractive and/or IMO early- ie. pre-war-period, 'Heeres'-Panzer related NCO-type shoulderstrap-pair that was intended for usage by a: 'Stabsfeldwebel eines Panzer-Lehr-Regiments'!
Attractive - albeit mis-matched - pair of WH (Luftwaffe) \'tropical-styled\' shoulderstraps (as was specifically intended for usage on the tropical-shirts ie. tunics) as was intended for a: \'Feldwebel der Flieger-o. Fallschirmjäger-Truppen\' The attractive shoulderstraps - which are both approximately 10,6 cms. sized in length - are presumably 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 sergeant who served within the Luftwaffe flight- ie. paratroopers'-branch. The attractive straps - which are both executed in the regular- (ie. slightly 'thicker'-styled- and/or: somewhat 'smooth'-like-) linnen-based cloth - come naturally mounted onto their functional tongues (as can be seen on the pictures). Both straps show the typical (ie. somewhat chocolate-brown-coloured- ie. typical Luftwaffe-tropical-styled-) NCO-braid and two (identical, zinc-based- and/or regular-sized) pips period-attached denoting the NCOs-rank of: 'Feldwebel' (ie. sergeant). The pair shows some minimal age, wear and/or staining (but is fully undamaged as can be seen on the pictures). As cab be learned from the pictures is this pair minimally mis-matched: something that is more often the case with these WH (Luftwaffe) 'tropical-styled' NCO-type shoulderstraps. (This can be noticed by looking at the differently coloured thread that was used for the button-holes). The pair was, however, most certainly worn as such and was always together. 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 just minimally used- ie. worn condition!
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 mismatched! - pair of white-piped, Waffen-SS NCO-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for an: \'SS-Oberscharführer der Infanterie\' that comes in an overall nice, albeit moderately used and/or worn-, condition This is an attractive - albeit mismatched! - pair of (IMO mid-war period-) Waffen-SS, NCO-type shoulderstraps, as piped in the desirable white- (ie. weisser-) branchcolour, as was intended for usage by an: 'SS-Oberscharführer der Infanterie' (ie. infantry-sergeant) and that comes in a very nice- (albeit moderately used and/or worn-), condition. The straps have the neat and very desirable (white-coloured) 'silk-like'-type piping attached and show the black-coloured 'upperdecks' (as to be expected). One of the straps has the black-coloured 'underlay' (whereas the other shows the field-grey-coloured 'underlay'). Both straps might well be worn as such as a pair and both have the 'standard-pattern', silverish-grey- (ie. somewhat sub-dued-) NCO-braid, attached (as can be seen on the pictures). The pair comes on its functional (typical SS-styled- and smaller-type-) tongues attached, has two (aluminium-based- and matching-) pips attached and is approximately 11 cms. sized in length. The pair - which is by all means a 'standard-issued'-pair - was IMO only slightly used: it shows some truly minimal wear and/or age. As most certainly known are all Waffen-SS, NCO-type straps to be considered rare and are very hard to encounter: those matching pairs, piped in the white ('Infanterie') having attached tongues even more so! In any case still an attractive and desirable pair of Waffen-SS infantry-type NCO-straps that is IMO priced according to its minimally mis-matched condition!
Attractive - albeit mismatched! - pair of white-piped, Waffen-SS NCO-type shoulderstraps, as was intended for an: \'SS-Unterscharführer der Infanterie\' that comes in an overall nice, albeit moderately used and/or worn, condition This is an attractive - albeit mismatched! - pair of (IMO mid-war period-) Waffen-SS, NCO-type shoulderstraps, as piped in the desirable white- (ie. weisser-) branchcolour, as was intended for usage by an: 'SS-Unterscharführer der Infanterie' (ie. infantry junior-sergeant) and that comes in a very nice- (albeit moderately used and/or worn-), condition. The straps have the neat and very desirable (white-coloured) 'silk-like'-type piping attached and show the black-coloured 'upperdecks'. One of the straps has the black-coloured 'underlay' (whereas the other shows the field-grey-coloured 'underlay'). Both straps might well be worn as a pair and both have the 'standard-pattern', silverish-grey- (ie. somewhat corroded) NCO-braid, attached (as can be seen on the pictures). The pair comes on its functional (typical SS-styled- and smaller-type-) tongues attached and is approximately 10,5 cms. sized in length. The pair - which is by all means a 'standard-issued'-pair - was IMO only slightly used: it shows some truly minimal wear and/or age. As most certainly known are all Waffen-SS, NCO-type straps to be considered rare and are very hard to encounter: those matching pairs, piped in the white ('Infanterie') having attached tongues even more so! In any case still an attractive and desirable pair of Waffen-SS infantry-type NCO-straps that is IMO priced according to its minimally mis-matched condition!
Attractive - albeit moderately used- ie. worn - example of a WH (Kriegsmarine) \'Marine-Artillerie-Abzeichen\' being a zinc- (ie. \'Feinzink\'-) based and non-maker-marked example as was IMO produced by the \'S.& L.\'-company This is an attractive - albeit moderately used- ie. worn - example of a WH (Kriegsmarine) 'Marine-Artillerie-Abzeichen' (or: coastal-artillery war-badge) being a zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based- albeit non-maker-marked example that comes in an overall nice (and IMO moderately used ie. worn-), condition. The detailed badge retains most of its golden-toned finish and is executed in greyish-silver-toned so-called: zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'). The badge comes mounted on its functional and unaltered (vertically-mounted- and/or thin-shaped-) pin and has an unaltered catch in place as to be expected (as can be seen on the pictures). Moreover, does it show a neatly 'crimped hinge' (as can be seen on the pictures). The award was IMO never cleaned nor polished and has still extraordinary and stunning detail: it is just a bit dusty ie. dirty and comes as recently found. It deals IMO with certainty with a later-war-period produced war-badge that was produced by the: 'Steinhauer u. Lück'-company based in the town of Lüdenscheid. I deem that this (IMO later-war-period-) example is accordingly priced: it will be hard to find a more attractive example for a more interesting price!
Attractive - albeit moderately used- ie. worn - example of a WH (Kriegsmarine) \'Zerstörerkriegsabzeichen\' (ie. destroyer war-badge) being a zinc- (ie. \'Feinzink\'-) based and maker- (ie. \'S.H.u.Co\'-) marked example This is an attractive - albeit moderately used- ie. worn - example of a WH (Kriegsmarine) 'Zerstörerkriegsabzeichen' (ie. destroyer war-badge) being a zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based- and/or maker- (ie. 'S.H.u.Co'-) marked example that comes in an overall nice (and IMO moderately used ie. worn-), condition. The detailed badge retains most of its golden-toned finish and is executed in greyish-silver-toned so-called: zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'). The badge comes mounted on its functional and unaltered (horizontally-mounted- and/or thin-shaped-) pin and has an unaltered catch in place as to be expected (as can be seen on the pictures). Moreover, does it show the tiny hook in place (as intended to firmly attach the award when worn on a tunic). The award was IMO never cleaned nor polished and has still extraordinary and stunning detail: it is just a bit dusty ie. dirty and comes as recently found. It clearly shows the makers-designation: 'S.H.u.Co' on its back and is thus a war-badge that was produced by the: 'Söhni u. Heubach'-company. I deem that this (IMO later-war-period-) example is accordingly priced: it will be hard to find a more attractive example for a more interesting price!
Attractive - albeit moderately worn! - WH (Kriegsmarine): \'U-Bootkriegsabzeichen\' being a non-maker-marked example as executed in bright-golden-toned \'Buntmetall\' (ie. \'Tombak\') as was produced by the maker (ie. \'Hersteller\'): \'Schwerin\' The atractive - and typical 'Buntmetall'- (ie. 'Tombak'-) based - naval war-badge is as stated above a non-maker-marked- and very detailed example that comes in an overall nicely preserved condition. It is, as such, a typical example that was produced by the desirable maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'Schwerin' based in the town of Berlin. The piece has an attractive age-patina and retains most of its period-applied golden-toned finish (and still shows some of its off-factory 'hochpolierte Kanten' ie. polished sides as can be seen on the pictures). The piece shows, moreover, extraordinary detail and comes naturally mounted onto its functional (flute-shaped- and/or golden-toned-) pin- and/or typical catch(-set-up) which are both fully unaltered and of course fully functional. The badge has - I deem - never been cleaned nor polished and is still a tiny bit dirty ie. stained. Simply an attractive - and with certainty not that often seen! - 'U-Bootkriegsabzeichen' by a desirable maker that was never before in collectors'-hands and that is I deem accordingly priced!
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 pou 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!
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 pou 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.

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). Simply a very attractive 'Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse ohne Schwerter'-set that is IMO accordingly priced
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 non-matching - pair of (I deem) \'tropical-issue\' WH (Heeres) greenish-tan-coloured- and/or woolen-based, so-called: \'Wickel-Gamaschen\' (ie. puttees) being maker-marked examples that come in a hardly used- ie. never worn-, condition This is an attractive - albeit regrettably non-matching but with certainty scarcely encountered - pair of (I deem) 'tropical-issue' WH (Heeres) typical greenish-tan-coloured- and/or woolen-based, so-called: 'Wickel-Gamaschen' (ie. puttees) that were worn in conjuction with the low-boots ie. 'Halbshuhe' being both nicely maker-marked examples that come in a hardly used- nor worn-, condition. Both pieces were - I deem - hardly worn and do only show some minimal age, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Both pieces - that came still 'tied-together' as found have both a functional, metal-based 'closing-hook' in place that shows an impressed 'R'-designation denoting that they are for the right- (ie. 'rechter') side (as can benoticed on the pictures). Both 'Wickel-Gamaschen' show an (identical) ink-stamp that reads: 'Ernst Dittrich - Limbach SA' (as can be seen on the pictures). Although the fact that this pair is non matching I deem that it can still excellenty be used on a mannequin. Simply a nice occasion to acquire a neat pair of 'tropical-issue', WH (Heeres) so-called: 'Wickel-Gamaschen' that is with certainty accordingly priced!
Attractive - albeit period-repaired - \'Panzerkampfabzeichen in Bronze\' being a clearly maker- (ie. \'KWM\'-) marked (and/or: typical zinc- ie. \'Feinzink\'-based-) example as was procuced by the: \'Karl Würster\'-company This is an attractive - and truly used- ie. worn - example of a zinc-based- and 'solid-back'-pattern, so-called: 'Panzerkampfabzeichen in Bronze' (or: bronze-class panzer-assault badge or PAB) being a maker- (ie. 'KWM'-) marked and/or: zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based example as was with certainty procuced by the: 'Karl Würster'-company and that comes in a moderately used- ie. worn, condition. The badge on offer here concerns a typical zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based specimen that retaine most of its golden-bronze-coloured finish: the piece has a somewhat 'darkened' ie. typical 'KWM'-like appearance. The badge has - I deem - not been cleaned nor polished and is just a bit tarnished as mentioned above. As stated above, is the piece a clearly maker-marked, 'solid-back'-example and shows various characteristics - such as for example the typical copper-based pin and/or high-modelled 'catch' which has - I deem - regrettably been period-repaired. The piece is a typical example as produced by the: 'Karl Würster'-company based in the town of Marneukirchen: it deals with a so-called: 'KWM classic pattern piece' (as uniquely numbered with the reference-number: '1.2.5' according to the excellent reference-work entitled: 'The Panzer-Assault badge of WWII' by my Belgian friend Philippe de Bock). The piece - which is very pronounced and that has great pronounced detail! - naturally shows all the details as to be expected for a badge by this particular maker. It was recently uncovered at a private household in Germany and was never before in collectors'-hands. Simply a very attractive and honest bronze-class, 'KWM classic pattern'-PAB that comes in an overall nice and moderately used condition: of course did I price it according to its period-repaired catch!
Attractive - albeit presumably issued but never worn! - example of a cloth version of a WH (Luftwaffe) \'Deutsches Kreuz im Gold\' (ie. DKiG or German Cross in gold) that comes in an overall very nice, condition This is a truly attractive - albeit presumably issued but never worn! - example of a cloth version of a WH (Luftwaffe) 'Deutsches Kreuz im Gold in Stoff' (or: cloth-based DKiG ie. German Cross in gold) that comes in an overall very nice- (I deem 'virtually mint'-), condition. The piece - which is neatly hand-embroidered in various types of bullion - has a (fully undamaged!) bluish-grey-coloured- (ie. typical 'Luftwaffe'-type-) woolen-based background, signifying that it was a piece that was awarded to a 'Luftwaffe'-soldier. The piece shows some minimal storage-age but is totally void of any damage or alike. It shows a bright-golden-toned (ie. metal-based) wreath as to be expected. The piece - which is void of an inked makers'-mark (ie. logo) on its back as is more often encountered - is nicely 'backed' with black-coloured 'backing'-paper (something that is more often seen). Simply a very nice example of a high-class award - only second in grade to a Knights Cross or 'Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes'! - that is I deem accordingly priced and that will be impossible to be upgraded!
Attractive - albeit presumably issued but never worn! - example of a cloth-based version of a WH (Heeres o. Waffen-SS) \'Deutsches Kreuz im Gold\' (ie. DKiG or German Cross in gold) being a maker- (ie. \'C.A. Westmann\'-) marked example This is a truly attractive - albeit presumably issued but with certaity never worn! - example of a cloth-based version of a WH (Heeres o. Waffen-SS) 'Deutsches Kreuz im Gold in Stoff' (or: cloth-based DKiG ie. German Cross in gold) that comes in an overall very nice- (I deem 'virtually mint'- and never tunic-attached-), condition. The piece - which is neatly hand-embroidered in various types of bullion - has a (fully undamaged!) field-grey-coloured woolen-based background, signifying that it was a piece that was awarded to a 'Heeres o. Waffen-SS'-soldier. The piece shows some minimal storage-age but is totally void of any damage or alike. It shows a somewhat darkened- albeit golden-toned (ie. metal-based) wreath as to be expected. The piece - which shows a period-attached, paper-based makers'-mark-etiket (that reads: 'C.A. Westmann - Dresden') on its back as is more often encountered - is nicely 'backed' with greyish-coloured 'backing'-paper (something that is more often seen). Simply a very nice example of a high-class award - only second in grade to a Knights Cross or 'Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes'! - that is I deem accordingly priced and that will be impossible to be upgraded!

The piece - which is neatly hand-embroidered in various types of bullion - has a (fully undamaged!) field-grey-coloured- and typically 'smooth-like' and woolen-based background, signifying that it was a piece that was awarded to a 'Heeres o. Waffen-SS'-soldier. The piece shows some minimal storage-age but is totally void of any real damage or alike. It shows a somewhat darkened- albeit golden-toned (ie. metal-based) wreath as to be expected. The piece - which shows a period-attached, paper-based makers'-mark-etiket (that reads: 'C.A. Westmann - Dresden') on its back as is more often encountered - is nicely 'backed' with greyish-black-coloured 'backing'-paper (something that is more often seen). Simply a very nice example of a high-class award - only second in grade to a Knights Cross or 'Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes'! - that is I deem accordingly priced and that will be very hard to be upgraded!
Attractive - albeit regretabbly single but nevertheless scarcely seen! - WH (Luftwaffe) shoulderstrap as executed in HBT-type cloth and piped in bright-yellow as intended for a: \'Soldat der Flieger- o. Fallschirmjäger-Truppen\' This is an attractive - albeit regretabbly single but nevertheless scarcely seen! - WH (Luftwaffe) shoulderstrap as was executed in typical, linnen-based so-called: HBT-type cloth and that is piped in bright-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour and was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der Flieger- o. Fallschirmjäger-Truppen' (or: simple pilot- or paratrooper-soldier), that comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly used- and/or worn-), condition. The strap - which measures 10.7 cms. in length - has the neat 'silk-like'-type piping attached and shows the signs of having been slightly worn and used (it is somewhat dirty ie. stained). The strap came mounted on its functional tongue and still had its ('pebbled'-styled) tunic-button attached (which with it was was tunic-attached). These HBT-style straps can easily be considered fairly scarce and saw also usage by the (later-war-period-) so-called: LW 'Felddivisionen': simply a neat example: too bad that it is only a single example!
Attractive - albeit regrettably damaged- and incomplete! - example of a: \'Wiederholungsspange zum EK II. Klasse\' (or bar to the WWI IC 2nd class) being a non-maker-marked example of the rarely seen first pattern This is an attractive - albeit regrettably damaged- and incomplete! - example of a: 'Wiederholungsspange zum EK II. Klasse' (or bar to the WWI IC 2nd class) being a non-maker-marked example of the rarely seen first pattern that comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly issued and/or worn-), condition. The neat piece has lost most of its 'high-polished sides (or 'hochpolierte Kanten') but is, however, 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' - as can be seen on the pictures). The 'Spange' regrettably misses all its four prongs (just the remains are still present and visible as can be seen on the pictures). The piece - which is of the rarely seen first pattern something that can be deducted from the 'rounded-styled' 1939-year-bar - retains a nice age-patina and was IMO never cleaned nor polished. 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: even more so when they are of the rarely seen first pattern. I deem that I have priced this damaged 'variant-pattern'-example accordingly!
Attractive - albeit regrettably incomplete! - example of a WH (Heeres ie. Waffen-SS) so-called: \'Demjansk\'-campaign-shield as executed in magnetic, so-called: \'Eisenblech\' that comes in an overall nice, condition This is an attractive - and/or detailed! - example of the (actually fairly scarcely encountered!) WH (Heeres ie. Waffen-SS) so-called: 'Demjansk'-campaign-shield that comes in an overall nice- (albeit regrettably incomplete but surely worn- and/or once tunic-attached-), condition. The (magnetic and minimally converse-shaped-) shield - which is executed in greyish-silver-coloured so-called: 'Eisenblech' - misses its metal back-plate and cloth (ie. woolen) backing: only 2 of its originally 4 pins ie. prongs are still in place (2 are missing) as can be seen on the pictures. The shield shows some minimal age and/ or staining caused by moderate wear: some minimal staining is visible and/or present, but the shield still retains truly extraordinary detail as to be expected (most ie. all of its period-applied finish is present and or preserved). The shield was of course never cleaned nor polished and comes as found. It was found at a private household and was simply stored as such for decades: it was never before in a collection. It should furthermore be mentioned that these 'Demjansk' campaign-shields are nowadays quite hard to come by. Still an attractive - and naturally original! - example of this collectable and desirable campaign-shield that is priced according to its incomplete ie. relic condition!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single - Waffen-SS officers\'-type shoulderboard, as intended for usage by an: \'Standartenführer\' (ie. full-colonel) who served within the: \'Waffen-SS Sanitäts-Truppen\' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless rarely encountered! - Waffen-SS, officers'-pattern shoulderboard as piped in the neat darker-blue (ie. 'blauer'-) coloured branchcolour and having a black-coloured 'underlay', as was intended for usage by an: 'Standartenführer' (ie. full-colonel) and presumably a medical doctor (ie. 'Arzt') who served within the: 'Waffen-SS Sanitäts-Truppen' (or: medical-troops) and that comes in an overall very nice (I deem clearly used- and/or worn- ie. carefully tunic-removed-), condition. The board - which never had a tongue and that was worn as a board of the 'sew-in'-type as more often encountered - has the darker-blue- (ie. 'blauer'-) coloured and/or: 'silk-like'-type piping attached and measures 11,2 cms. in length as more often encountered. The piece shows some moderate age, wear and/or staining and shows a matching (and golden-toned- albeit somewhat tarnished) pair of pips attached denoting the unusual rank of: 'Standartenführer' (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply an attractive and fully 'text-book', high-ranked, single Waffen-SS shoulderboard that comes in not the easiest encountered branchcolour!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single - example of a mid- (ie. later-war-) period WH (Heeres) zinc-based skull-device (\'Totenköpf für Pz-Kragenspiegel\') as was intended for usage on (amongst others) the black woolen-based \'Panzer\'-collar-tabs This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single - example of a mid- (ie. later-war-) period, WH (Heeres) typical zinc-based skull-device (ie. 'Totenköpf für Panzer-Kragenspiegel') as was intended for usage on (amongst others) the black woolen-based 'Panzer'-collar-tabs ('Kragenspiegel') and that comes in an overall very nice- (simply never mounted- ie. 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'-), condition. The (detailed!) skull has both its (also zink-based- and never bent) prongs firmly in place: as such, it can naturally excellenty be used to complete any Panzer-type 'Kragenspiegel'. The skull was never cleaned nor polished and does show some minimal age and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a nice occasion to acquire an original, mid- (ie. later-war-) period 'Panzer'-skull for a competitive price!

'virtually mint- ie. unissued'-), condition. The (detailed!) skull has all three of its (also zink-based- and never bent) prongs firmly in place: as such, it can naturally excellenty be used to complete any Panzer-type 'Kragenspiegel'. The skull was never cleaned nor polished and does show some minimal age and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a nice occasion to acquire an original, mid- (ie. later-war-) period 'Panzer'-skull of the 'three-pronged'-pattern for a competitive price!
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.

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.

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'!

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.

'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour as was intended for - and/or with certainty worn by! - a: 'Soldat u. Unteroffiziers-Anwärter der Infanterie-Truppen' (or simple soldier and junior-sergeant- candidate who served within an infantry-unit ie. regiment) and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly used- ie. carefully 'cut-off a tunic', condition. The neat shoulderstrap - which is piped in the desirable white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour - measures approximately 11,2 cms. in length and has the neat 'silk-like'-type piping attached (as can be seen on the pictures). The strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and was I deem only moderately used and/or worn. It shows a single stripe (ie. 'Lasche') which is constructed from silverish-blue-coloured, so-called NCO-braid firmly attached denoting the soldiers-rank of: 'Unteroffiziers-Anwärter'. The strap misses its tongue (it was carefully 'cut-off a tunic') but 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. Simply an attractive, mid- (ie. later-) war-period- and/or: 'Heeres'-related enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap that was intended for a: 'Soldat u. Unteroffiziers-Anwärter der Infanterie-Truppen'!

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 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'!

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'!

The neat shoulderstrap - which is piped in the desirable bright-orange- (ie. 'orangeroter'-) coloured branchcolour - measures approximately 11,6 cms. in length and has the 'silk-like'-type piping attached (as can be seen on the pictures). The strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and was only moderately used and/or worn. The strap comes without a tongue and was clearly 'cut-off a tunic': it just shows minimal age and/or staining as mentioned above. This particular example originated from a larger cloth- ie. 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'.

Panzerjäger-Truppen' (or: junior-sergeant who served within an army tank- ie. tank-destroyer-regiment- ie. unit) and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly used- ie. regrettably 'cut-off'-), condition. The neat shoulderstrap - which was cut-off and measures approximately 10,3 cms. in length - has the bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured- and/or desirable 'silk-like'-type piping attached and comes as issued and/or most certainly worn (it was IMO once glued into an album and does show some minimal glue-remains on its back). The strap is in a fully 'text-book' condition and has a somewhat greenish- ie. mustard- coloured- and/or linnen-based 'upperdeck' as to be expected. The strap is, moreover, 'backed' with field-grey-coloured wool, something that is more often encountered with genuine tropical- ie. DAK- (or 'Deutsches Afrikakorps'-) related shoulderstraps. The strap is IMO only minimally worn (it is just somewhat faded ie. slightly stained caused by regular usage) and comes in a nice condition overall. It has never been cleaned and still shows some dirt ie. staining as caused by years of storage. As most certainly known are most DAK-shoulderboards offered on todays' market copies: this is naturally a fine and 100% genuine, period piece for which I give a life-time garuantee (as always). Simply an attractive - and as most certainly known rarely encountered! - early, tropical-pattern-, 'Panzer'-related NCO-type shoulderstrap that is priced according to its regrettably 'cut-off' condition: too bad that it is only a single example!

Panzerjäger-Truppen' (or: junior-sergeant who served within an army tank- ie. tank-destroyer-regiment- ie. unit) and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly used- ie. regrettably 'cut-off'-), condition. The neat shoulderstrap - which was cut-off and measures approximately 11,2 cms. in length - has the bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured- and/or desirable 'silk-like'-type piping attached and comes as issued and/or most certainly worn (it was IMO once glued into an album and does show some minimal glue-remains on its back). The strap is in a fully 'text-book' condition and has a somewhat greenish- ie. mustard- coloured- and/or linnen-based 'upperdeck' as to be expected. The strap is, moreover, 'backed' with field-grey-coloured wool, something that is more often encountered with genuine tropical- ie. DAK- (or 'Deutsches Afrikakorps'-) related shoulderstraps. The strap is IMO only minimally worn (it is just somewhat faded ie. slightly stained caused by regular usage) and comes in a nice condition overall. It has never been cleaned and still shows some dirt ie. staining as caused by years of storage. As most certainly known are most DAK-shoulderboards offered on todays' market copies: this is naturally a fine and 100% genuine, period piece for which I give a life-time garuantee (as always). Simply an attractive - and as most certainly known rarely encountered! - early, tropical-pattern-, 'Panzer'-related NCO-type shoulderstrap that is priced according to its regrettably 'cut-off' condition: too bad that it is only a single example!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless rarely encountered! - WH (Heeres) \'tropical\'- (ie. truly \'DAK\'-related-) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for an: \'Unteroffizier der Pz. o. Panzerjäger-Truppen\' This is a truly attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless rarely encountered! - WH (Heeres) 'tropical'- (ie. truly DAK- or 'Deutsches Afrikakorps'-) related, NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the neat bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - an: 'Unteroffizier der Pz. o. Panzerjäger-Truppen' (or: junior-sergeant who served within an army anti-tank- ie. tank-destroyer regiment) and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit heavingly used- ie. worn-), condition. The neat shoulderstrap - which measures approximately 11 cms. in length - has the neat bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured and/or woolen-type piping attached and comes on its functional tongue as issued and/or most certainly worn. The strap is in a fully 'text-book' condition and has a typical greenish-brown-coloured and/or linnen-based 'upperdeck'. The board is also 'backed' with 'earthen-brown'- (ie. mustard-brown-) wool, something that is more often encountered with genuine tropical ie. DAK- (or 'Deutsches Afrikakorps'-) related shoulderstraps. The strap - which shows the mustard-yellow-coloured, tropical NCO-braid attached - is clearly worn (it is faded ie. slightly stained caused by regular usage) and shows damage on the NCO-braid (as can be seen on the pictures). It has never been cleaned and still shows some dirt ie. staining as caused by years of storage. As most certainly known are most DAK-shoulderboards offered on todays' market copies: this is naturally a fine and 100% genuine, period piece for which I give a life-time garuantee (as always). Simply a superb - and as most certainly known very rarely encountered! - tropical-pattern, 'Panzer'-related NCO-type shoulderstrap: too bad that it is only a single piece!
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 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!
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!

'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour as was intended for an: 'Unteroffizier der Flieger- o. Fallschirmjäger-Truppen' (ie. junior-sergeant who served within a paratrooper- ie. pilots'-unit) and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used- and/or worn-), condition. The strap - which measures 10,6 cms. in length - has the neat 'silk-like'-type piping attached and shows the signs of having been moderately worn and used. The strap came mounted on its functional tongue. These HBT-style straps can easily be considered 'fairly scarce' and saw also usage by the (later-war-period-) so-called: LW 'Felddivisionen': simply an attractive example that is not that often offered for sale. Too bad that it is only a single piece!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely seen! - WH (Luftwaffe) NCO-type shoulderstrap as was executed in HBT-type cloth as was intended for an: \'Unteroffizier der Nachrichten-Truppen\' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely seen! - WH (Luftwaffe) NCO-type shoulderstrap as was executed in HBT-type cloth and piped in the bright-brown- (ie.

The strap came mounted on its functional tongue. These HBT-style straps can easily be considered 'fairly scarce' and saw also usage by the (later-war-period-) so-called: LW 'Felddivisionen': simply an attractive example that is not that often offered for sale.

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\' 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 nevertheless with certainty rarely encountered - (IMO) NCO-type, so-called: \'Ostvölker\' (Luftwaffe-related?) shoulderstrap having the black- (\'schwarzer\'-) coloured branchcolour This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless with certainty rarely encountered - (IMO) NCO-type, so-called: 'Ostvölker' (Luftwaffe-related?) shoulderstrap having the black- ('schwarzer'-) coloured branchcolour and that comes in a wonderful- (ie. hardly- or even never worn-), condtion. The strap is constructed following the typical '1944 cloth-minimising production-manner' using different shades of wool and/or material (as can be seen on the pictures). The shoulderstrap which measures approximately 9,7 cms. in length as more often seen - is truly very unusual in construction: it is executed from the bluish-coloured- and/or smooth-type wool and has the neat, 'silk-like'-type piping attached: moreover, does it show two stripes of silver-toned, NCO-braid attached over the entire length, presumably indicating the soldiers' (ie. NCOs'-) rank (as is more encountered with these later-war-period 'Ostvölker'-related shoulderstraps). The strap comes naturally mounted on its functional tongue. The exact usage and/or signifigance is, however, not known to date. Simply an attractive and rarely seen 'Ostvölker'-related shoulderstrap: too bad that it is only a single example!
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'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - 'cyphered' WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboard, as was intended for a: 'Leutnant des Infanterie-Regiments 451' - overall nice (albeit IMO moderately used ie. tunic-removed-) condition! This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - 'cyphered', WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboard, as was piped in the neat white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - a: 'Leutnant des Infanterie-Regiments 451' (or lieutnant who served within the infantry regiment, numbered: '451' ), in overall nice, albeit clearly used ie. worn and/or IMO tunic-removed, condition. 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. Simply an attractive infantry-related shoulderboard that belonged to a: 'Leutnant des Infanterie-Regiments 451': too bad that it is only a single example!

'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 ie. 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 (I deem) most certainly signified artillery- (ie. 'Artillerie'-) usage. Simply a neat and desirable LW 'Felddivisionen'-collar-tab that is actually not that easily encountered: too bad that it is only a single example!

The patch shows three (greyish-coloured- and/or 'Feinzink'-based-) gulls attached and has the 'standard'-pattern, brownish-yellow-coloured- and/or 'buckram'-based 'backing' attached: moreover, was it once glued into an album or scrap-book and still shows some minimal carton- ie. glue-remains on its back (as can be seen on the pictures). The tab is, moreover, nicely piped with bright-red-coloured piping (which is executed in the neat 'rayon'-like pattern) something that (I deem) most certainly signified artillery- (ie.

The patch shows a single (silverish-grey-coloured- and/or: aluminium-based) gull attached and shows a brownish-beige-coloured- and/or carton(!)-based backing in place (as can be seen on the pictures). The tab is, moreover, nicely piped with copper-brown- (ie. 'kupferbraun'-) coloured piping (which is executed in the neat 'rayon'-like pattern) something that (I deem) most certainly signified signals- (ie. 'Nachrichten'-) related usage.

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 ie. ground-troops). The patch shows three (silverish-grey-coloured- and/or: aluminium-based) gulls attached and shows a brownish-beige-coloured- and/or 'buckram'-based backing in place (as can be seen on the pictures). The tab is, moreover, nicely piped with white-coloured piping (which is executed in the neat 'rayon'-like pattern) something that (I deem) most certainly signified infantry- (ie. 'Infanterie'-) related usage. Simply a neat and desirable LW 'Felddivisionen'-collar-tab that is actually not that easily encountered: too bad that it is only a single example!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - early- (ie. pre-) war-period, WH (Heeres) EM-type shoulderstrap as was intended for a: \'Soldat eines Kradschützenbattalione der Pz.Div. u. Inf.Div. (mot)\' This is a very attractive - and actually rarely encountered albeit regrettably single! - early- (ie. pre-) war-period WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap as was intended for - and/or clearly used by! - a: 'Soldat eines Kradschützenbattalione der Pz.Div. u. Inf.Div. (mot)' (or: simple soldier who served within a tank- ie. infantry-related-, motor-cycle unit) and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used ie. worn-), condition. The strap - which is of the early- (ie. pre-) war- ie. so-called: 'M36 o. M40'-pattern - has a darker-green-coloured 'upperdeck' and has the neat, light-brown- (ie. 'kupferbrauner'-) coloured and/or 'silk-like'-type piping, attached. The tongue is naturally also present. The strap- which is regular-sized- and measures 10,5 cms. This rarely seen strap originated from an older shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. As possibly known, is this typical 'kupferbrauner'-branchcolour very rarely seen and can be regarded as one of the most rarely encountered branchcolours within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht': original EM-type straps are almost never offered for sale and are missing in most shoulderstrap-collections. Simply a very attractive and fully 'text-book', 'Kradschützen'-shoulderstrap: too bad that it is only a single piece!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - early- (ie. pre-war-) period WH (Heeres), 'M36'-pattern (rounded-style-) 'cyphered', NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel des Infanterie-Regiments 282' This is an attractive - and as such actually scarcely encountered albeit regrettably single! - early- (ie. pre-war-) period WH (Heeres), 'M36'-type (rounded-style-) 'cyphered', NCO-type shoulderstrap as was piped in the white- (ie. weisser-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - a: 'Feldwebel des Infanterie-Regiments 282' (or sergeant who served within the infantry-regiment numbered: '282'), in overall nice, albeit moderately used and/or worn-, condition. 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 woolen-type piping as more often encountered. The piece never had a tongue and was worn as a strap of the 'sew-in-type' (see pictures). 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!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - early- (ie. pre-war-) period WH (Heeres), \'M36\'-pattern (rounded-style-) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for an: \'Oberfeldwebel eines Heeres-Nachrichten-Abteilungs\' This is an attractive - and as such actually scarcely encountered albeit regrettably single! - early- (ie. pre-war-) period WH (Heeres), 'M36'-type (rounded-style-), NCO-type shoulderstrap as was piped in the bright-yellow (ie. 'zitronengelbener'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - an: 'Oberfeldwebel eines Heeres-Nachrichten-Abteilungs' (or sergeant first-class who served within an army signals unit), in overall nice, albeit moderately used and/or worn-, condition. 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). Simply an attractive and/or early-war period-, 'Heeres-Nachrichten'-related shoulderstrap as was intended for usage by an: 'Oberfeldwebel eines Heeres-Nachrichten-Abteilungs': too bad that it is only a single example!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - early- (ie. pre-war-) period WH (Heeres), \'M36\'-pattern (rounded-style-) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for an: \'Oberfeldwebel eines Heeres-Nachrichten-Abteilungs\' This is an attractive - and as such actually scarcely encountered albeit regrettably single! - early- (ie. pre-war-) period WH (Heeres), 'M36'-type (rounded-style-), NCO-type shoulderstrap as was piped in the bright-yellow (ie. 'zitronengelbener'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - an: 'Oberfeldwebel eines Heeres-Nachrichten-Abteilungs' (or sergeant first-class who served within an army signals unit) and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used and/or worn-), condition. 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 attached (as more often encountered). The strap comes mounted on its original tongue and measures approximately 11,4 cms. in length: it shows the silverish-coloured and/or standard-type, 'Heeres' NCO-braid attached. The shoulderstrap shows two (aluminium-based-) pips attached, denoting the NCOs-rank of: 'Oberfeldwebel' (or: sergeant first-class): bothdevices shows some minimal age- ie. tarnish. The shoulderstrap shows (as stated above) only moderate usage and/or wear (some minor staining and/or dust is visible-/present). Simply an attractive and/or early-war period-, 'Heeres-Nachrichten'-related shoulderstrap as was intended for usage by an: 'Oberfeldwebel eines Heeres-Nachrichten-Abteilungs': too bad that it is only a single example!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - early-period example of a so-called: \'Flieger-HJ\'-shoulderstrap as was specifically intended for usage by a: \'Hitlerjunge\' who was attached to the: \'Bann 138\' (Bann 138 = Siegen-Wittgenstein) This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely found! - early-period example of a so-called: 'Flieger-HJ'-shoulderstrap as piped in the light-blue- (ie. 'hellblauer'-) coloured branchcolour as was specifically intended for usage by a: 'Hitlerjunge' who was attached to the: 'Bann 138' (Bann 138 = Siegen-Wittgenstein) and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit moderately used and worn- ie. once shirt- or tunic-attached-), condition. The early-period strap - which is executed in the typical, beige-brown- (ie. tan-) coloured linnen - shows the light-blue-coloured- and/or neatly machine-embroidered '138'-numerals (which are executed in so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei'). The strap - which measures 11,8 cms. as more often - shows the typical rayon-based 'piping' and comes without tongue as found: it was clearly used as a piece of the 'sew-in'-pattern. It is, however, void of an 'RzM'-etiket something that is more often seen (as can be seen on the pictures). The strap shows moderate wear, age and/or staining and comes (as stated above) in an overall nice condition without showing any damage or alike. It should be noted that all 'Flieger-HJ' shoulderstraps can easily be graded 'scarce'. Simply a neat 'Flieger-HJ'-shoulderstrap that belonged to a a: 'Hitlerjunge' who was attached to the: 'Bann 138' (Bann Siegen-Wittgenstein within the 'Gebiet West-Westfalen')!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO early- ie. pre-war period-, so-called: \'M36\'-pattern, WH (Heeres) EM-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: \'Soldat eines Kraftfahr-Abteilungs o. Regiments\' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO early- ie. pre-war period-, so-called: 'M36'-pattern, WH (Heeres) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the light-blue- (ie. 'kornblumenblauer'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat eines Kraftfahr-Abteilungs o. Regiments' (or: soldier who served within a transport-related unit- ie. regiment) and that comes in an overall very nice (IMO only minimally- or never used-), condition. The neat shoulderstrap - which is piped in the light-blue- (ie. 'kornblumenblauer'-) coloured branchcolour - measures approximately 11,1 cms. in length and has the woolen-type piping attached. The strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and comes naturally mounted on it functional tongue and shows no defaults whatsoever. The strap is - as stated above - entirely executed from the the smooth-woolen (ie. 'moleskin'-) based wool and is as such a strap that was (IMO) privately acquired in a tailor-shop or alike. This particular example originated from a larger cloth- ie. shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. In any case an attractive and/or early- (ie. pre-) war-period- and/or: 'Heeres'- ie. 'Nachshub'-related enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap that was intended for a: 'Soldat eines Kraftfahr-Abteilungs o. Regiments'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO early-war-period-, WH (Heeres), \'M36\'-pattern- (rounded-style-) EM-type shoulderstrap (being of the unusually encountered, \'wide-sized\'-pattern-) as was intended for a: \'Soldat der Gebirgjäger-Truppen\' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO early-war-period-, WH (Heeres), 'M36'-pattern- (rounded-style-) enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap (being of the 'wide-sized'-pattern-) as was piped in the darker-green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or clearly used by! - a: 'Soldat der Gebirgjäger-Truppen' (or: simple soldier who served within a mountain-troopers unit- ie. regiment) in overall nice, albeit moderately used- and/or worn- (ie. clearly tunic-removed-) condition. 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'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO mid- (ie. later-) war-period-, WH (Heeres), \'M43\'-pattern-, cyphered\', NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: \'Feldwebel u. Mitglied des Grenadier-Regiments “Feldherrnhalle” This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless rarely encountered! - IMO mid- (ie. later-) war-period-, WH (Heeres), 'M43'-pattern-, 'cyphered', NCO-type shoulderstrap, as piped in the white- (ie.

Mitglied des Grenadier-Regiments “Feldherrnhalle” (or: sergeant who served within the famous infanterie-related rifle-regiment named: “Feldherrnhalle”), in overall nice, albeit moderately used- and/or worn-, condition. The neat strap - which is IMO of the mid- ie. later-war-type - shows only moderate age ie. wear and has a field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdeck' and has the white- (ie. '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. Mitglied des Grenadier-Regiments “Feldherrnhalle”!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap that comes with its period-attached: 'Übershube' attached, as was intended for an: 'Unteroffizier des Artillerie-Regiments 246' 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-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour and that comes with its period-attached-, so-called: 'Übershube' (ie. slip-on) attached, as was intended for - and/or with certainty worn by! - 'Unteroffizier des Artillerie-Regiments 246' (or: junior-sergeant who served within the army-artillery regiment numbered: '246'), in an overall nice (IMO only moderately used-) condition. The neat shoulderstrap - which is piped in the desirable bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour - measures approximately 11 cms. in length and has the neat (and desirable) 'silk-like'-type piping and/or: silver-coloured- (and/or standard-pattern-) NCO-braid, 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: '246' (as executed in equally bright-red-coloured so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei' done in wool as can be seen on the pictures). This particular example originated from a large cloth- and/or: shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. In any case an attractive and/or mid- (ie. later-) war-period- and/or: 'Heeres'-related NCO-type shoulderstrap that was intended for - and/or used by! - an: 'Unteroffizier des Artillerie-Regiments 246'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - IMO mid-war period, so-called: 'M43'-pattern, WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel der Nachschub-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 light-blue- (ie. 'kornblumenblauer'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or with certainty worn by! - a: 'Feldwebel der Nachschub-Truppen' (or sergeant and possibly a driver who served within an army transport unit ie. regiment), in an overall nice (IMO only moderately used-) condition. The neat shoulderstrap - which is piped in the light-blue- (ie. 'kornblumenblauer'-) coloured branchcolour - measures approximately 11,2 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 silverish-coloured (ie. early-pattern) type NCO-braid and/or single (regular-sized- and/or zinc-based-) pip attached, denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Feldwebel'. 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 NCO-type shoulderstrap that was intended for a: 'Feldwebel der Nachschub-Truppen'!
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.

'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.

'hochroter'-) coloured and/or: desirable 'silk-like'-type branchcolour ie. piping, attached. The strap was IMO only minimally used- and/or worn and does show only minimal staining and/or age mainly caused by decades of storage only (the strap is, however, fully void of any damage as can be seen on the pictures). The strap comes naturally mounted on its functional tongue and has the neat 'standard'-type-, bluish-grey-coloured- (ie. truly sub-dued-) 'Heeres'-type- NCO-braid and one (regular-sized- and alumnium-based-) pip attached, denoting the NCOs'-rank of: 'Wachtmeister o.

Simply a great occasion to acquire an attractive and/or fully 'text-book', M43-styled-, NCO-type shoulderstrap that was intended for usage by a: 'Wachtmeister eines (Sturm)Artillerie-Regiments': too bad that it is only a single example!

'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour measures approximately 11 cms. in length and has the desirable 'silk-like'-type piping attached (as is more often encountered with these later-war-period straps). The strap is constructed following the typical '1944 cloth-minimising production-manner', using different shades of wool and/or material. It comes naturally mounted on its functional tongue and shows the neat (Gothic-styled) 'US'-cyphers (being 'machine-stitched'-embroidered by means of so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei' in white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured wool). It should be noted that all 'M44'-style, EM-type straps are actually quite hard to encounter and can easily be graded 'scarce': even more so when they are neatly 'cyphered' as is this example. Of interest is, moreover, that this later-war-period strap is executed in darker-green-coloured wool: I have a similar pair in my own private collection. The piece shows some truly minimal age, wear and/or staining. Simply a nice occasion to acquire a rare 'M44'-pattern shoulderstrap that was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der Infanterie-Truppen u. Mitglied eines Unteroffiziersschule'!

It should be noted that all 'M44'-style, NCO-type straps are actually quite hard to encounter and can easily be graded 'scarce': even more so when they are piped in the seldomly seen light-blue- (ie.

The strap has the neat bright-green-coloured, 'silk-like'-type piping and is approximately 10,8 cms. sized in length as more often encountered. It is constructed following the typical '1944 cloth-minimising production manner' using different shades of wool and/or other 'left-over'-material. The strap is as stated in a superb condition overall and can IMO not be upgraded: just some minimal aging ie. staining is noticable, simply caused by decades of storage only. Simply a very nice M44-type strap in not the most commonly encountered branchcolour: too bad that it is only a single piece!

The neat shoulderstrap - which is piped in the desirable white- (ie.

The strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and was hardly used nor worn. The strap comes naturally mounted on its functional tongue and shows no defaults nor damage but does show minimal age, wear and/or staining as mentioned above. This particular example originated from a large cloth- ie. shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired.

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 officers\'-pattern shoulderboard as was intended for - and clearly used by! - an: \'SS-Hauptsturmführer der Infanterie-Truppen\' This is a very attractive - albeit regrettably single! - example of a Waffen-SS officers'-pattern shoulderboard, having a white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured secondary branchcolour as was intended for - and clearly worn by! - an: 'SS-Hauptsturmführer der Infanterie-Truppen' (or: captain who served within an infantry unit) and that comes in overall nice- (albeit moderately used ie. worn-), condition. The neat shoulderstrap - which never had a tongue and that is of the 'sew-in'-pattern - has a somewhat dull- ie. greyish-silverish-coloured 'upperdeck' and is executed in black-coloured wool and has the neat 'rayon'-type, white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured, piping. The board - which measures approximately 10,3 cms. in length - shows two non-identical (regular-sized, golden-toned and/or 'Buntmetall'-based-) pips attached, denoting the officers'-rank of: 'SS-Hauptsturmführer'. (The officer who wore this board was obviously once promoted, something that corroborates the presence of two differently-styled pips). The board has most certainly been worn and shows some moderate age, usage and/or moderate staining. Simply an attractive Waffen-SS officers'-type shoulderboard in a desirable branchcolour: I deem that I have priced this neat Waffen-SS-pattern board accordingly!
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! - Waffen-SS, enlisted-mens\'-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the bright-pink-coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by an: \'SS-Mann\' who served within the: \'Waffen-SS Panzer-Truppen\' The neat shoulderstrap has the neat bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured- and/or 'silk-like'-type branchcolour (ie. piping) attached: the strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and is truly hard to be upgraded. The shoulderstrap - which measures 10,5 cms. sized in length as more often encountered - shows the (typical) 'Waffen-SS'-styled-, field-grey-coloured- and/or: woolen-based 'underlay' (constructed from so-called: Italian wool (or: 'drap-orti') and typical (smaller-sized) tongue as only seen on genuine Waffen-SS-type shoulderstraps (see pictures). The strap shows some minimal age and/or staining and or fading, simply caused by moderate wear and/or age. In any case is this a fully garuanteed, original Waffen-SS Panzer shoulderstrap that is moderately used ie. worn and that is IMO consequently priced. These straps were worn on the regular field-grey tunics but could also be worn on the black-coloured Panzer wrap-around-tunics. This strap originates from a private household in Germany where it was found together with the strap I offer under #42371: both pieces were most likely worn as a pair but do show minimal differences (as can be seen on the pictures). It should be noted that these original, period- Waffen-SS-shoulderstraps can easily be graded 'scarce': even more so when they come in the desirable pink-coloured- (ie. 'SS-Panzer-Truppen'-branchcolour!

This strap originates from a private household in Germany where it was found together with the strap I offer under #42372: both pieces were most likely worn as a pair but do show minimal differences (as can be seen on the pictures). It should be noted that these original, period- Waffen-SS-shoulderstraps can easily be graded 'scarce': even more so when they come in the desirable pink-coloured- (ie. 'SS-Panzer-Truppen'-branchcolour!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - Waffen-SS, NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was piped in the light-blue-coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by an: \'Unterscharführer\' who served within the: \'Waffen-SS Nachschub-Truppen\' The neat shoulderstrap has the neat light-blue- (ie. 'hellblauer'-) coloured branchcolour and/or 'silk-like'-type branchcolour (ie. piping) attached: the strap is fully 'text-book' in all facets and is truly hard to be upgraded. The shoulderstrap - which measures 10,3 cms. sized in length as more often encountered - shows the (typical) 'Waffen-SS'-styled-, field-grey-coloured- and/or: woolen-based 'underlay' (see pictures). The strap shows some minimal age and/or staining and or fading, simply caused by moderate wear and/or age. It has the yellowish- (ie. silverish-grey-) coloured (ie. somewhat stained) NCO-braid attached denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Unterscharführer'. In any case is this a fully garuanteed, original Waffen-SS shoulderstrap that is moderately used ie. worn and that is IMO consequently priced. It should be noted that these original, period- Waffen-SS shoulderstraps can easily be graded 'scarce': even if they are piped in the more commonly encountered, light-blue-coloured- (ie. 'SS-Nachshub-Truppen'- or SS transport-troops-related-) branchcolour!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - Waffen-SS, officers\'-type shoulderstrap as piped in the darker-blue-coloured branchcolour as was intended for usage by an: \'SS-Untersturmführer o. Arzt\' who served within the: \'Waffen-SS Sanitäts-Truppen\' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - Waffen-SS, officers'-type shoulderstrap as piped in the darker-blue- (ie. 'blauer'-) coloured branchcolour as was intended for usage by an: 'SS-Untersturmführer o. Arzt' (ie. lieutnant or medical doctor) who served within the: 'Waffen-SS Sanitäts-Truppen' and that comes in overall nice- (albeit moderately used ie. worn- and carefully tunic-removed-), condition. The neat shoulderboard - which never had a tongue attached and that is of the 'sew-in'-pattern - has a somewhat 'sub-dued'- ie. greyish-silverish-coloured 'upperdeck' and is executed in black-coloured wool. It shows the neat 'rayon'-type, darker-blue- (ie. 'blauer'-) coloured, piping attached (as can be seen on the pictures). The board - which measures approximately 11,3 cms. in length - never had any 'cypher' nor pip(s) attached denoting the officers'-rank of: 'SS-Untersturmführer'. The board has most certainly been worn and shows some moderate age, usage and/or moderate staining. Simply an attractive Waffen-SS officers'-type shoulderboard that comes in a desirable branchcolour: I deem that I have priced this neat Waffen-SS-pattern officers'-type shoulderboard accordingly!
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) 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) 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 executed in golden-/silver toned \'braid\', as was intended for usage by a: \'Generalmajor 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: braid-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 (I deem that it was clearly 'cut-off a tunic').

Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) officers\'-pattern shoulderboard as was intended for usage by an: \'Oberleutnant eines Heeres-Flak-Batallion\' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless fairly rarely encountered! - WH (Heeres) officers'-pattern shoulderboard as was intended for usage by an: 'Oberleutnant eines Heeres-Flak-Batallion' (or: junior-officer ie. lieutnant first-class who served within an army-infantry-related-, anti-aircraft batallion) and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly used-, worn and/or carefully tunic-removed-), condition. The neat shoulderboard - which has the silverish-grey-coloured 'upperdeck' - is piped in the desirable white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour and measures approximately 11 cms. in length and shows a single (golden-toned-, regular-sized and/or 'Buntmetall'-based-) pip, attached denoting the officers'-rank of: 'Oberleutnant' (as can be seen on the pictures). Next to this, the strap shows a (rare!) 'FL'-cypher (which is also executed in golden-toned 'Buntmetall'-based metal). The piece is fully 'text-book' in all facets and was IMO moderately used and/or worn; it was clearly used as a board of the 'sew-in'-type and was carefully tunic-removed (as can be seen on the pictures). The board shows no real defaults nor damage but does show age, wear and/or staining as mentioned above. Simply an attractive, 'Heeres'-related officers'-type shoulderboard that was intended for - and/or used by! - an: 'Oberleutnant eines Heeres-Flak-Batallion': too bad that it is only a single specimen!
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) \'cyphered\' M36- (ie. M40-) rounded-pattern, NCO-type shoulderstrap as was intended for a: \'Feldwebel eines Panzer- o. Panzerjäger-Divisionsstab\' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely seen! - early- (ie. pre-) war-period WH (Heeres) 'cyphered' M36- (ie. M40-) rounded-pattern NCO-type shoulderstrap was piped in the bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour and was as such intended for usage by a: 'Feldwebel eines Panzer- o. Panzerjäger-Divisionsstab' (or: sergeant who served within the divisional headquarters of a tank- ie. anti-tank-division) and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. The strap - which measures 10,5 cms. in length - is fully 'text-book' in all facets and is executed in typical darker-green-coloured wool, having the neat bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured and/or 'silk'-like-type piping attached. The strap is not damaged but does show some honest - albeit fair - wear and/or age: some minimal staining and/or wear is noticable (esp. on the piping). The shoulderstrap shows the (standard-pattern-) bright-silver-coloured NCO-braid attached and has a (larger-sized- and/or 'Buntmetall'-based-), Gothic-styled: 'D'-cypher and (equally executed) pip period-attached, denoting that the strap was intended for an NCO with the rank of: 'Feldwebel' (ie. sergeant). Both devices were (I deem) period-attached and do show some regular age and/or minimal tarnish (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply an attractive - and with certainty scarcely encountered! - neatly 'cyphered' shoulderstrap that belonged to a: 'Feldwebel eines Panzer- o. Panzerjäger-Divisionsstab'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) \'cyphered\' M36- (ie. rounded-) pattern, NCO-type shoulderstrap as was intended for an: \'Unteroffizier des Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 41\' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely seen! - early- (ie. pre-) war-period WH (Heeres) 'cyphered' M36- (ie. rounded-) pattern, NCO-type shoulderstrap as piped in the bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for an: 'Unteroffizier des Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 41' (or: junior-sergeant who served within the anti-tank- ie. tank-destroyer unit, numbered: '41') and that comes in an overall nice (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. The strap - which measures 11,7 cms. in length - is fully 'text-book' in all facets and is executed in typical darker-green-coloured wool, having the neat bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured and/or 'woolen'-type piping attached. The strap is totally undamaged but does show some honest - albeit fair - wear and/or age: some minimal staining and/or wear is noticable. It shows the neat (machine-embroidered by means of so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei') stitched 'P'-cypher and '41'-numerals. All three 'cyphers' are executed in the bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured wool ie. linnen as to be expected. The strap comes without tongue and was clearly used as a strap of the so-called: 'sew-in'-type: it has the more early-type, silver-coloured-, Heeres NCO-braid attached (something that is more often encountered with these early-type straps). Simply an attractive and with certainty scarcely encountered, 'cyphered' shoulderstrap that belonged to an: 'Unteroffizier des Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 41'!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) \'cyphered\' M36- (ie. rounded-) pattern, NCO-type shoulderstrap as was intended for an: \'Unteroffizier des Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 9\' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely seen! - early- (ie. pre-) war-period WH (Heeres) 'cyphered' M36- (ie. rounded-) pattern, NCO-type shoulderstrap as piped in the bright-pink- (ie.

'rosaroter'-) coloured and/or 'rayon'-type piping attached. The strap - which is a typical example as was in my opinion used on the 'Waffenrock' (ie. dress-tunic) - is totally undamaged but does show some honest - albeit fair - wear and/or age: some minimal staining and/or wear is noticable. It shows the neat (hand-embroidered!) 'P'-cypher and '9'-numeral. Both 'cyphers' are executed in the bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured wool ie. linnen as to be expected. The strap comes without tongue and was clearly used as a strap of the so-called: 'sew-in'-type: it has the more early-type, darker-silver-coloured-, Heeres NCO-braid attached (something that is more often encountered with these early-type straps). Simply an attractive and scarcely encountered, 'cyphered' 'Waffenrock'-shoulderstrap that belonged to an: 'Unteroffizier des Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 9'!

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).

'weisser'-) coloured- and/or woolen-type piping attached. The strap shows the neat (machine-embroidered by means of so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei'-) 'US'-cypher (which is executed in the white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured wool- ie. fine-structured linnen as to be expected - see pictures). 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). The strap has the 'standard-issue'-pattern-, bright-silver-coloured type NCO-braid- and/or single- (alumnium-based-) pip attached, denoting the NCOs rank of: 'Feldwebel'. It should be noted that all 'cyphered'-pattern shoulderstraps can be easily regarded 'fairly scarce': those attributed to the: 'Heeres-Unteroffiziersschulen' even more so.

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'.

'sergeant first-class'). Next to this, the strap shows the (aluminium-based) '4'-,'0'- and/or: '9'-numerals attached. All five devices were with certainty period-attached and do show some regular age and/or tarnish. The strap came without tongue (and was worn as a piece of the 'sew-in'-type) and does show some moderate age-, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply an attractive early- ie. pre-war-period-, 'Heeres' NCO-type, 'Infanterie'-related shoulderstrap that belonged to an: 'Oberfeldwebel des Infanterie-Regiments 409': too bad that it is only a single example!

'moleskin'-) based and/or: darker-green-coloured-, woolen-based 'upperdeck' and has the woolen-type- and/or bright-green- (ie. 'hellgrüner'-) coloured branchcolour ie. piping attached (see pictures). The shoulderstrap shows the (standard-pattern- ie. greyish-silver-coloured-) NCO-braid attached, denoting that the strap was intended for an NCO with the rank of: 'Unteroffizier' (ie. junior-sergeant). The strap comes mounted on its original (small-sized) tongue and does show some minimal age-, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The strap is - as stated above - entirely executed from the the smooth-woolen (ie. 'moleskin'-) based wool and is as such a strap that was with certainty privately acquired at a tailor-shop or alike.

The shoulderstrap shows the (standard-pattern-) silver-coloured NCO-braid attached and has 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 strap shows the ('Buntmetall'-based- and/or early pattern double '2'- and/or: '7'-numerals attached. All twelve devices were with certainty period-attached (in a somewhat sloppy manner!) and do show some regular age and/or tarnish. The strap comes mounted on its original tongue and does show some moderate age-, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures).

'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for - and/or clearly worn by! - an: 'Unteroffzier des Infanterie-Regiments 6' (or: junior-sergeant who served within the infantry regiment, numbered: '9') and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used- ie. worn- and/or tunic-removed-), condition. The strap - which measures approximately 11,2 cms. in length - has the 'standard-pattern' and/or: field-grey-coloured-, woolen-based 'upperdeck' and has the desirable 'silk-like'-type- and/or white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour ie. piping attached (see pictures). The shoulderstrap shows the (standard-pattern-) silver-coloured NCO-braid attached and has moreover a neat so-called: 'Übershube' (showing the machine-stitched '9'-numeral-) and bright-green- (ie. 'wiesengrüner'-) coloured regimental-indicator 'Lasche' period-attached, denoting that the strap was intended for an NCO with the rank of 'Unteroffzier'. The strap comes mounted on its original tongue and does show some moderate age-, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very interesting, mid-war-period-, 'Heeres' NCO-type, 'Infanterie'-related shoulderstrap that belonged to an: 'Unteroffzier des Infanterie-Regiments 6': too bad that it is only a single example!
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 (Kriegsmarine ie. \'Marine-Beamten-related-), neatly \'cyphered\'-, officers\'-type shoulderboard, as was intended for an administrative-officer with the rank of: \'Kapitänleutnant\' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but still fairly scarcely encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine ie. 'Marine-Beamten-related-), beige-white-coloured- and neatly 'cyphered'-, officers'-type shoulderboard, that comes mounted on its so-called: 'Auf der Steg'-mounting, as was intended for - and worn by! - an administrative-officer with the rank of: 'Kapitänleutnant', in overall very nice (ie. slightly used and/or IMO tunic-removed-) condition. The neat shoulderboard - which is constructed from the beige-white-coloured wool - shows an 'upperdeck' that is executed in silver-coloured thread (ie. 'braid'). It measures approximately 11,3 cms. in length and comes mounted on its unusually seen so-called: 'Auf der Steg'-mounting and was as such (IMO) intended for usage on a white-coloured, summer-type tunic. The board shows a (golden-toned-) eagle-device- and two (zinc-based and golden-toned-) pips attached, denoting the officers'-rank of: 'Kapitänleutnant'. The board has 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. Simply a very nice and/or truly detailed WH Kriegsmarine ie. 'Marine-Beamten-related-, officers'-type shoulderboard: too bad it is only a single example!

It measures approximately 11,2 cms. in length and comes mounted on its unusually seen so-called: 'Auf der Steg'-mounting and was as such (IMO) intended for usage on a (regular) darker-blue-coloured, tunic. The board shows a (golden-toned-) eagle-device attached, denoting the officers'-rank of: 'Leutnant'.

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 regrettably single! - white-coloured, WH (Luftwaffe) collar-patch (ie. \'Kragenspiegel\') as was intended for usage by a: \'Soldat der Hermann Göring Division\' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - white-coloured, WH (Luftwaffe) collar-patch (ie. 'Kragenspiegel für Mannschaften u. Unteroffizier der Luftwaffe') as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der Hermann Göring Division' and that comes in an overall nice- (I deem isssued albeit never worn nor even tunic-attached-), condition. The collar-tab is executed in white-coloured- (smooth- ie. 'moleskin'-like-) wool and was as such intended for usage by a soldier (or NCO) belonging to one of the units that operated under the jurisdiction of the 'Hermann Göring Division'. The patch shows a single (silverish-coloured- and/or aluminium-based) gull attached and has the 'standard'-pattern, yellowish-beige-coloured- and/or 'buckram'-based 'backing' attached (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a neat and desirable LW 'Hermann Göring-Division'-related collar-tab that is actually not that easily encountered: too bad that it is only a single example!

'Kragenspiegel für Mannschaften u. Unteroffizier der Luftwaffe') as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat der Hermann Göring Division' and that comes in an overall nice- (I deem moderately used and/or most certainly once tunic-attached-), condition. The collar-tab is executed in white-coloured- (smooth- ie. 'moleskin'-like-) wool and was as such intended for usage by a soldier (or NCO) belonging to one of the units that operated under the jurisdiction of the 'Hermann Göring Division'. The patch shows three (silverish-coloured- and/or aluminium-based) gulls attached and has the 'standard'-pattern, brownish-yellow-coloured- and/or 'buckram'-based 'backing' attached (as can be seen on the pictures). The tab is, moreover, nicely piped with bright-red-coloured piping (which is executed in the more often encountered wool) something that (I deem) most certainly signified artillery- (ie. 'Artillerie'-) usage. Simply a neat and desirable LW 'Hermann Göring-Division'-related collar-tab that is actually not that easily encountered: too bad that it is only a single example!

Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - \'cyphered\' WH (Heeres), early-war period-, ie. \'M36\'-pattern- (rounded styled), NCO-type shoulderstrap, as was intended for a: \'Feldwebel einer Nebelwerfer-Schule\' This is a truly attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless not that often seen - neatly 'cyphered' WH (Heeres), early-war period-, ie. 'M36'-pattern- (rounded styled), shoulderstrap having the neat darker-purple- (ie. 'bordeaux-roter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by a: 'Feldwebel einer Nebelwerfer-Schule' (or: sergeant who served within one of the army smoke-troop schools or training-institutes), that comes in an overall nice (and IMO only minimally used- ie. worn-), condition. The neat strap - which is approximately 10,9 cms. sized in length - has the smooth-woolen (ie. 'moleskin'-) based and/or: darker-green-coloured-, woolen-based 'upperdeck' and has the 'rayon'-type- and/or darker-purple- (ie. 'bordeaux-roter'-) coloured branchcolour ie. piping attached (see pictures). The shoulderstrap shows the (standard-pattern- ie. greyish-silver-coloured-) NCO-braid attached and shows a (regular-sized- and/or: zinc-based-) 'S'-cypher and pip period-attached, denoting that the strap was intended for an NCO with the rank of: 'Feldwebel' (ie. sergeant). Both devices show some regular age and/or minimal tarnish. The strap comes mounted on its original (small-sized) tongue and does show some minimal age-, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The strap is - as stated above - entirely executed from the the smooth-woolen (ie. 'moleskin'-) based wool and is as such a strap that was with certainty privately acquired at a tailor-shop or alike. Simply a very attractive, IMO early- ie. mid-war-period-, 'Heeres' NCO-type, 'Nebelwerfer'-related shoulderstrap that belonged to a: 'Feldwebel einer Nebelwerfer-Schule': I deem that I have priced this attractive - and actually scarcely seen! - strap accordingly!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - \'cyphered\'-, WH (Heeres) officers\'-type shoulderboard, as was intended for - and clearly worn by! - a: \'Major des Maschinengewehr-Abteilungs 6\' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - neatly 'cyphered', WH (Heeres) officers'-type shoulderboard, as was piped in the neat white- (ie.

The neat shoulderboard is constructed in the smooth-type (ie. 'moleskin'-like-) wool and is per regulation piped in white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured wool. 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!

The board - which originates from a private household and was never before in a collection - shows a neat (smaller-sized- and/or Gothic-styled-) 'M'-cypher attached and shows a single (golden-toned-) pip and (equally golden-toned-) '7'-numeral attached: all three devices show some minimal tarnish ie. wear. Simply an attractive shoulderboard that belonged to an: 'Oberstleutnant des Maschinengewehr-Abteilungs 7': too bad that it is only a single example!

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 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. Simply an attractive - and desirable! - shoulderboard that belonged to a: 'Major des Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 24': too bad that it is only a single example!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - \'FAD\'- (ie. \'Freiwilligen-Arbeitsdienst\'-) related, officers\'-pattern shoulderboard (ie. \'Schulterstück\') as was intended for - and used by - a: \'FAD-Feldmeister\' (ie. lieutnant first-class) This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely seen! - so-called: 'FAD'- (ie. 'Freiwilligen-Arbeitsdienst'-related-) officers'-pattern shoulderboard (ie. 'Schulterstück') as was intended for - and used by - a: 'FAD-Feldmeister' (ie. lieutnant first-class) and that comes in an overall nice- (ie. I deem moderately used- and/or carefully tunic-removed-), condition. The shoulderstrap - which measures 12,7 cms. in length and which is of the type that was used on the various FAD-tunics around 1934/35 - does show some minimal and/or age but is void of any damage or alike: it is constructed from the (typical) black-coloured-, velvet-type wool and shows a silverish-black-striped 'upperdeck' having to horizontally mounted loops attached (all constructed from silverish/black-coloured braid as to be expected). The board comes without tongue and was with certainty intended to be used as a piece of the so-called: 'sew-in-type'. I came with a typical 'FAD'-type tunic-button attached. Simply an attractive, 'FAD'- (ie. 'Freiwilligen-Arbeitsdienst'-) related, officers'-pattern shoulderboard that was intended for - and used by - a: 'FAD-Feldmeister': too bad that it is only a single example!

'Schulterstück') as was intended for - and clearly used by - an: 'RLB-Hauptluftschutzführer' (or: air-raid-warden-officer with a rank comparable with that of a captain ie. 'Hauptmann') and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. IMO minimally used- and/or carefully tunic-removed-), condition. The shoulderstrap - which measures 11 cms. in length and which is of the pre- (ie. early-war-) type that was used on the various RLB-tunics throughout the war - does show some minimal and/or age but is void of any damage: it is constructed from the (typical) lilac-coloured-, smooth-type wool and shows a silverish-coloured 'upperdeck' having to horizontally mounted loops (all constructed from silver-braid as to be expected). The board comes without tongue and was with certainty intended to be used as a piece of the so-called: sew-in-type. Simply an attractive, 'Luftschutz' (ie.

Mitglied einer Gebirgsjäger-Schule\' The neat shoulderstrap - which is moderately used ie. clearly worn - measures approximately 13,2 cms. in length (and is 5.3 cms. wide as more often seen) has the darker-green-coloured and/or 'smooth'-woolen-based-, 'upperdeck': its shows the darker-green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured and/or woolen-type piping ie. branchcolour, attached. The strap comes mounted on its functional tongue and was IMO moderately used and/or worn (as can be seen on the pictures). The strap has the 'standard'-pattern- and/or (bright-) silver-coloured NCO-braid attached and shows a Gothic-styled- (and/or regular-sized-, silver-coloured- and/or aluminium-based-) 'S'-cypher and dito pips attached denoting the NCOs'-rank ie. function of: 'Oberfeldwebel u. Mitglied einer Gebirgsjäger-Schule'. All three devices are minimally stained- ie. tarnished, simply caused by wear and/or decades of storage. The strap is just a tiny bit dirty ie. stained and shows evidence of having been used and/or worn. The piece - which is with certainty a 'standard-issued'- (and NOT a tailor-made-) strap - is simply hard to be upgraded. This particular shoulderstrap 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'. Simply a great piece: too bad that it is only a single example!

Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - \'Polizei\' (ie. police) general-officers\'-type shoulderboard, as was executed in golden-/silver toned \'braid\', as was intended for usage by a: \'Generalmajor der Polizei\' The truly attractive shoulderboard - which is constructed from the typical bright-green-coloured, 'smooth-type' (ie. moleskin-like-) wool and having the golden-/silver toned- so-called: braid-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: it comes mounted on its thin-shaped (officers'-type) tongue. The neat shoulderboard - which measures approximately 10,4 cms. in length - never had any general-officers'-pip(s) attached denoting the rank of a: 'Generalmajor der Polizei' (see pictures). It should be noted that all (police) general-officers' shoulderboards can easily be graded 'very scarce'. Too bad that it is only a single example!
Attractive - albeit regrettably single! - \'Polizei\', general-officers\'-type shoulderboard, as was executed in golden-/silver toned \'braid\', as was intended for usage by an: \'SS-Gruppenführer u.

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: it never had a tongue and was with certainty worn as a piece of the 'sew-in'-type (as can be seen on the pictures). The neat shoulderboard - which measures approximately 11 cms. in length - shows a period-attached- (silver-toned- and aluminium-based-) pip attached denoting the rank of a: 'Generalleutnant der Polizei' (see pictures). It should be noted that all (police) general-officers' shoulderboards can easily be graded 'very scarce'. Too bad that it is only a single example!

'Kragenspiegel für Offiziere der LW') as executed on a bright-pink-coloured background as was specifically intended for usage by a: 'Flieger-Oberstabsingenieur' (being a rank similar to: 'Oberstleutnant' or: lieutnant-colonel) and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit minimally used- and/or most certainly once 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 very detailed and 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 'very scarce'. Simply a very attractive high-ranked collar-tab that belonged to a: a: 'Flieger-Oberstabsingenieur': too bad that it is only a single specimen!
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 rarely encountered! - neatly hand-embroidered- (ie. officers-pattern) collar-tab (ie. \'Kragenspiegel für Führer\') that belonged to an officer serving within the: \'TeNo\' (ie. \'Technische Nothilfe\') This is a truly attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - albeit single but nevertheless rarely encountered! - neatly hand-embroidered- (ie. officers-pattern) collar-tab (ie. 'Kragenspiegel für Führer') that belonged to an officer serving within the: 'TeNo' (ie. 'Technische Nothilfe') and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit moderately used ie. IMO tunic-removed-), condition. The collar-tab is constructed from the black-coloured- and/or 'smooth'-type wool and is 'piped' in the (typical) 'TeNo'-pattern, black- and silver-coloured braid (as can be seen on the pictures). The tab shows the typical- (brownish-yellow-coloured- and/or 'buckram'-based-) backing (that shows some moth-damage) and shows the: 'XIII - 14' so-called: 'TeNo'-numerals- ie. 'cyphers' (which are very nicely hand-enbroidered in silver-coloured 'braid' as can be seen on the pictures). These neat insignia-pieces were worn on the dark-blue-coloured- (officers'-) type 'TeNo' uniforms and/or tunics. This particular piece originates from a private household and was truly never before in collectors'-hands. Simply a very attractive - and most certainly desirable! - 'TeNo'-related insignia-piece: only the first such rare collar-tab I ever had on offer!

'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 but still scarcely encountered! - specific \'cyphered\'-, EM-type shoulderboard, as was intended for a WH (Heeres) \'Feldpost-Lagermeister\' (being of a rank comparable with a soldiers\'-rank) This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely encountered! - specific 'cyphered'-, enlisted-mens'-type shoulderboard, as was intended for a WH (Heeres) 'Feldpost-Lagermeister' (being of a rank comparable with a soldiers'-rank) and that comes in an overall very nice (albeit IMO sligthty worn- ie. IMO tunic-removed-), condition. The board - which is executed in the 'smooth'-like- and/or darker-green-coloured wool (aka 'moleskin'-wool) has the neat (bright- ie. lemon-yellow- ie. 'zitronengelber'- coloured-) branchcolour (ie. 'Zwischenfarbe') and darker-green-coloured 'upperdeck' showing (interwoven) yellow-coloured braid something that was obligatory for all shoulderboards as worn and/or used by the 'Feldpost'-service officials. The board measures approximately 11,3 cms. in length and never had a tongue attached and was surely intended for usage as a piece of the 'sew-in'-type (as can be seen on the pictures). The board shows a (regular-sized-, silver-toned- and aluminium-based-): 'FP'-cypher (period-) attached. This device is somewhat tarnished and/or stained but which is still very nice and/or pronounced (as can be seen on the pictures). Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that the device was attached BEFORE the board was totally assembled (something that can be seen on the pictures). The board was only minimally used and does show some (truly minor) staining ie. wear. This particular example originated from a larger cloth- ie. shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. Simply an attractive - and truly rarely seen! - EM-type, 'cyphered' shoulderboard that belonged to a: WH (Heeres) 'Feldpost-Lagermeister': too bad it is only a single piece!
Attractive - albeit single but still scarcely encountered! - specific \'cyphered\'-, officers\'-type shoulderboard, as intended for a WH (Heeres) \'Feldpolizeisekretär der Geheime Feldpolizei\' (being of a rank comparable with the rank of: \'Leutnant\') This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely encountered! - specific 'cyphered'-, officers'-type shoulderboard, as was intended for a WH (Heeres) 'Feldpolizeisekretär der Geheime Feldpolizei' (being of a rank comparable with the rank of: 'Leutnant') and that comes in an overall very nice (IMO never worn- nor tunic-attached-), condition. The board - which is executed in the 'smooth'-like- and/or darker-green-coloured wool (aka 'moleskin'-wool) has the neat (light-blue- ie. 'hellblauer'- coloured-) branchcolour (ie. 'Zwischenfarbe') and typical silver-greyish-coloured 'upperdeck' showing an (interwoven) light-blue-coloured stripe something that was obligatory for all shoulderboards as worn and/or used by the various 'Geheime Feldpolizei'-officials. The board measures approximately 10,2 cms. in length and never had a tongue attached and was surely intended for usage as a piece of the 'sew-in'-type (as can be seen on the pictures). The board shows a (regular-sized-, silver-toned- and aluminium-based-): 'GFP'-cypher (period-) attached. This device is minimally tarnished and/or stained but which is still very nice and/or pronounced (as can be seen on the pictures). Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that the device was attached BEFORE the board was totally assembled (something that can be seen on the pictures). The board was never used and does show some (truly minor) staining caused by decades of storage only. This particular example originated from a larger cloth- ie. shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. Simply an attractive - and truly scarcely seen! - officers'-type, 'cyphered' shoulderboard that belonged to a: WH (Heeres) 'Feldpolizeisekretär der Geheime Feldpolizei': too bad it is only a single piece!
Attractive - albeit single but still scarcely encountered! - specific \'cyphered\'-, officers\'-type shoulderboard, as was intended for a WH (Heeres) \'Feldpostmeister\' (being of a rank comparable with a: \'Hauptmann\'-rank) This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single but nevertheless scarcely encountered! - specific 'cyphered'-, officers'-type shoulderboard, as was intended for a WH (Heeres) 'Feldpostmeister' (being of a rank comparable with a: 'Hauptmann'-rank) and that comes in an overall very nice (albeit IMO moderately worn- ie. IMO tunic-removed-), condition. The board - which is executed in the 'smooth'-like- and/or darker-green-coloured wool (aka 'moleskin'-wool) has the neat (bright- ie. lemon-yellow- ie. 'zitronengelber'- coloured-) branchcolour (ie. 'Zwischenfarbe') and silver-grey-coloured 'upperdeck' showing a tiny, interwoven yellow-coloured piece of braid something that was obligatory for all (officer-type-) shoulderboards as worn and/or used by the 'Feldpost'-service officials. The board measures approximately 10,8 cms. in length and never had a tongue attached and was IMO intended for usage as a piece of the 'sew-in'-type (as can be seen on the pictures). The board shows a (regular-sized-, golden-toned- and IMO 'Buntmetall'-based-): 'FP'-cypher and two silver-toned pips (period-) attached. All three devices are somewhat tarnished and/or stained but are still very nice and/or pronounced (as can be seen on the pictures). The board was only moderately used and does show some (truly minor) staining ie. wear. This particular example originated from a larger cloth- ie. shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. Simply an attractive - and truly scarcely seen! - officers'-type, 'cyphered' shoulderboard that belonged to a: WH (Heeres) 'Feldpostmeister': too bad it is only a single piece!
Attractive - albeit single! - (I deem) pre-war-period (ie. \'M-36\'- ie. \'M40\'-) pattern\' (rounded style), \'cyphered\' WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap as was intended for usage by a: \'Feldwebel eines Panzerjäger-Abteilungs- o. Regiments\' This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single! - (I deem) pre-war-period (ie. 'M-36'- ie. 'M40'-) pattern' (rounded style), 'cyphered' WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstrap as was piped in the neat bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by a: 'Feldwebel eines Panzerjäger-Abteilungs- o. Regiments' (or: sergeant who served within an anti-tank ie. tank-destroyer unit ie. regiment) and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly used and/or carefully tunic-removed-) condition. The neat strap - which is of the pre- (ie. early-war-) type - has the darker-green-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdeck' and does show as stated above the bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour and/or: woolen-type piping attached. The shoulderstrap - which measures approximately 11,6 cms. in length - comes mounted onto its functional tongue and shows a (larger-sized-, silverish-toned- and/or aluminium-based) so-called: 'P'-cypher and equally stypled pip period-attached denoting that it was a strap that was used by a: 'Feldwebel eines Panzerjäger-Abteilungs- o. Regiments'. The strap was recently found at a private household in Germany and was never before in collectors-hands. In any case a decorative and/or fully 'text-book' - and not that often encountered! - 'Heeres'-type, 'cyphered' shoulderstrap that belonged to a: 'Feldwebel eines Panzerjäger-Abteilungs- o. Regiments': 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'!

Regiments' 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 bright-yellow- (ie. 'zitronengelbener'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for a: 'Soldat eines Nachrichten-Abteilungs o. Regiments' (or: soldier who served within an army signals-related unit- ie. regiment), in an overall nice (IMO only moderately used-) condition. The neat shoulderstrap - which is piped in the desirable neat bright-yellow- (ie. 'zitronengelbener'-) coloured branchcolour - measures approximately 13,2 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. 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. 'Nachrichten'-related enlisted-mens'-type- shoulderstrap that was intended for - and/or used by! - 'Soldat eines Nachrichten-Abteilungs o. Regiments'!

Attractive - albeit somewhat stained - WH (Heeres- ie. Waffen-SS) so-called: \'Kraftfahrbewährungs-Abzeichen in Bronze\' (or: drivers\' proficiency-badge in bronze) being an example that comes mounted on its piece of field-grey wool as issued The attractive - and most certainly very detailed! - arm-badge retains both its original prongs and also retains its period metal-based 'back-plate' as is more often encountered: it was never cleaned and is still a tiny bit stained ie. dirty caused by decades of storage only. As stated above was this nicely pronounced badge issued but never worn: it was never tunic-attached and still retains its neat, golden-bronze-coloured- (albeit somewhat tarnished) finish and also shows a fully preserved (beige-coloured-) 'backing-paper' as more often (see pictures): the piece came from a private-household and was never before in collectors'-hands. Simply a nice example of a WH (Heeres- ie. Waffen-SS) so-called: 'Kraftfahrbewährungs-Abzeichen in Bronze'!
Attractive - albeit unmarked but with certainty rarely seen! - example of a pre-war-period-, so-called: FAD (ie. \'Freiwilligen Arbeitsdienst\') belt-buckle (ie.: \'Koppelschloss\') being a \'variant\'-pattern- (ie. \'two-pieced\'-) example This is a truly attractive - albeit unmarked but with certainty rarely seen! - example of a pre-war-period-, so-called: FAD (ie. 'Freiwilligen Arbeitsdienst') belt-buckle (ie.: 'Koppelschloss') being a 'variant'-pattern- (ie. 'two-pieced'-) example having a separate (and/or also copper- ie. 'messing'- based 'front-plate' attached) and that comes in an overall nice-, (albeit moderately worn- and/or totally uncleaned-), condition. The buckle - having a 'front-plate' that shows the FAD-characters with above the text: 'Für Volk u. Heimat' - 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). As most likely known was the FAD (or: 'Freiwilligen Arbeitsdienst') the predecessor of the later founded RAD (or: 'Reichsarbeitsdienst'). Simply an attractive example of a (very early-pattern and rarely seen!) so-called: FAD (ie. 'Freiwilligen Arbeitsdienst') belt-buckle that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - aluminium-based-, SA- (ie. \'Sturmabteilungen\'-) related \'tinnie\', being a maker- (ie. \'Mayer u. Wilhelm\'-) marked example depicting marching SA-troopers and text that reads: \'SA-Brigade 54 Marschiert! - Freiburg i. Br. 22.-23.-8-35\' The attractive - and actually most certainly rarely found! - badge (ie. 'tinnie' or: 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen') is executed in silver-toned-, aluminium-based metal and depicts three marching SA-troopers (with swastika-banner) and text that reads: 'SA-Brigade 54 Marschiert! - Freiburg i. Br. 22.-23. Aug. 1935' and that was as such intended for an SA-related event that took place in the year 1935. 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 (fairly shiny-) silver-greyish-coloured finish. Simply a great occasion to acquire an attractive - and with certainty not that easily found! - SA-related so-called: 'Tagungs- o. Veranstaltungsabzeichen' that is offered for an interesting price!
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!

The eagle - which truly shows great pronounced detail - is a neat example of the 'high-standard' 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 woolen- (ie. 'Garbadine'-) based background - is additionally 'backed' with a piece of thin-shaped- and black-coloured linnen-duck as is more often encountered (see pictures). The piece shows some minimal glue- and/or carton-remains caused by having been glued into an album- or scrapbook once. Simply a very attractive and surely decorative 'Polizei'-related item that is not that often offered for sale!
Attractive - and actually fairly scarcely encountered! - OT (ie.: \'Organisation Todt\') silverish-grey-coloured-, officers\'-type-armband (ie. \'Ärmelstreifen\') being a tunic-removed example depicting the text: \'Org.Todt\' This is an attractive example of the fairly scarcely encountered, OT (ie.: 'Organisation Todt') silverish-grey-coloured-, officers'-type-armband (ie. 'Ärmelstreifen') being a clearly tunic-removed example depicting the (black-coloured- and linnen-based-) text: 'Org.Todt' and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit moderately used and/or clearly worn- and/or tunic-removed-), condition. The armband - which comes IMO in an almost full-length condition and that is still period 'sewn-together' - measures approximately 39 x 5 cms. and comes in an overall nice albeit used- and/or worn, condition: it is just a tiny bit stained and is somewhat wrinkled (can be seen on the pictures). This example was with certainty once tunic-attached: some of the period stitching-remains (ie. threads) are still present and/or visible. Simply a very nice and quite unusually encountered TR-era, officers'-pattern, 'Org.Todt'-armband that will be hard to be upgraded. Only the third such rarely seen example I ever had on offer!

Attractive - and actually fairly scarcely encountered! - RLB (or: \'Reichsluftschutzbund\') light-blue-coloured, so-called: \'Amtsträger\'-armband, depicting the \'RLB\'-logo (without lettering!) and showing an interwoven: \'BeVo -Wuppertal\' marking This is an attractive example of the fairly scarcely encountered, RLB (or: 'Reichsluftschutzbund') light-blue coloured, so-called: 'Amtsträger'-armband (ie. 'Armbinde'), depicting the 'RLB'-logo (without lettering!) and showing the interwoven: 'BeVo -Wuppertal' marking and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit minimally used and/or slightly worn-), condition. This band signified that the bearer was an official member of the RLB and acted as a so-called: 'Amtsträger' (these bands could also be worn with the civilian attire). The armband - which is approximately 40 x 10,5 cms. sized - is in a gorgeous condition: it is just a tiny bit stained and is somewhat wrinkled. This example also shows the more often encountered and/or interwoven 'BeVo - Wuppertal' company-designation, which is clearly visible at the back. Simply a very nice and quite unusually enocountered TR era armband that will be hard to be upgraded!

The armband - which is approximately 38 x 10,5 cms. sized - comes in an overall nice albeit used- and/or worn condition: it is just a tiny bit stained and is somewhat wrinkled (moreover, does it show a tiny and IMO non-disturbing tear ie. hole - as can be seen on the pictures). This example also shows the more often encountered and/or interwoven 'BeVo - Wuppertal' company-designation, which is clearly visible at the back. Simply a very nice and quite unusually enocountered TR era armband that will be hard to be upgraded!
Attractive - and actually fairly scarcely encountered! - silver-metal-based, so-called: \'RAD o. Deutscher Frauenarbeitsdienst\' (or: womens Labor Service) service-badge (or: \'Dienstbrosche\') as was intended for usage by a: \'Kameradschaftsälteste\' This is an attractive - and actually fairly scarcely encountered! - silver-coloured- ie. 'blank' metal-based-, so-called: 'RAD o. Deutscher Frauenarbeitsdienst' (or: womens Labor Service) service-badge (or: 'Dienstbrosche') as was intended for usage by a: 'Kameradschaftsälteste' that comes in an overall nice, albeit used ie. worn-, condition. The neat brooch - having a diameter of approximately 4 cms. - has pronounced detail and comes naturally mounted on its functional pin-back set-up (which is fully unaltered and naturally still functional). The badge has a truly nice, somewhat 'matted' age-patina and has IMO never been cleaned nor polished. The piece shows a clear makers'-signification that reads: 'A' (= 'Assmann u. Söhne') and also shows a date: '39' (as is more often seen with these RAD-'Dienstbroschen'. A similar example is also figured in the: 'Heering-Hüsken Abzeichenkatalog' wherein it is given a unique reference-number (ie. '3806C') and given an estimated value of 90 Eu. Simply an attractive - and not that commonly encountered! - 'RADwJ Dienstbrosche' as was intended for usage by a member having the rank of: 'Kameradschaftsälteste'!
Attractive - and actually fairly scarcely encountered! - so-called: \'Deutsches Reiterabzeichen der 3. Klasse (ie. \'in Bronze\') being a maker- (ie. \'L.Chr. Lauer\'-) marked example that comes together with its accompanying \'Halbminiatur\' This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - Third Reich-period, so-called: 'Deutsches Reiterabzeichen der 3. Klasse (ie. 'in Bronze') being a neatly maker- (ie. 'L.Chr. Lauer'-) marked example that comes together with its accompanying 2-cms. sized 'Halbminiatur' and that come both in an overall nice- (and I deem only moderately used ie. worn-), condition. The neat - and detailed - award comes mounted onto its functional pin and/or catch(set-up). It is a nicely bronze-coloured and/or pronounced specimen as was produced by the: 'L.Chr. Lauer' company as based in Nürnberg and/or Berlin (something that is of course also clearly shown on the back of the badge). The badge also shows a patent-pending-designation (that reads: 'Gesetzlich Geschützt' as can be seen of the pictures). The badge retains all of its bronze-toned finish and was only moderately worn (but was certainly never cleaned nor polised). This is also valid for the accompanying (and equally maker-marked!) 'Halbminiatur'. Both pieces are naturally Third Reich- ie. WWII-era badges and not 1957-versions (something that is easily noticed by the presence of the capital 'R'-character as visible on the bottom of both badges). Simply a nice (and complete!) set of this fairly scarcely encountered and decorative award that is accordingly priced!

Lauer\'-) marked example that comes in moderately used- ie. worn, condition This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - WWII-period, so-called: 'Deutsches Reiterabzeichen der 3. Klasse (ie. 'in Bronze') being a neatly maker- (ie. 'L.Chr. Lauer'-) marked example that comes in an overall nice- (and I deem only moderately used ie. worn-), condition. The neat - and detailed - award comes mounted onto its functional pin and/or catch(set-up). It is a nicely bronze-coloured and/or pronounced specimen as was produced by the: 'L.Chr. Lauer' company as based in Nürnberg and/or Berlin (something that is of course also clearly shown on the back of the badge). The badge also shows a patent-pending-designation (that simply reads: 'Gesetzlich Geschützt' as can be seen of the pictures). The badge retains all of its bronze-toned finish and was only moderately worn (but was certainly never cleaned nor polised). The piece is naturally a WWII-era badge and not a 1957-version (something that is easily noticed by the presence of the capital 'R'-character as visible on the bottom of the badge). Simply a nice example of this fairly scarcely encountered and decorative award that is accordingly priced!

The badge retains all of its bronze-toned finish and was only moderately worn (but was certainly never cleaned nor polised). The same is valid for the (only) 2 cms.-sized miniature: this example comes mounted on its period-pin and hardly shows any age nor staining. Both pieces are naturally WWII-era badges and not 1957-versions (something that is easily noticed by the presence of the capital 'R'-character as visible on the bottom of both badges). Simply a nice example of this fairly scarcely encountered and/or very decorative award (ie. matching set) that is accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually fairly scarcely encountered! - so-called: \'Deutsches Reiterabzeichen der 3. Klasse\' (ie. \'in Bronze\'), being a neatly maker- (ie. \'L.Chr.

'in Bronze'), being a neatly maker- (ie. 'L.Chr. Lauer'-) marked example that comes in an overall nice (and IMO only moderately used ie. worn-), condition. The neat and very detailed award - which comes on its functional pin and/or catch (-set-up) - is a superb bronze-coloured- and/or pronounced specimen as was produced by the: 'L.Chr. Lauer' company based in Nürnberg and/or Berlin (something that is of course clearly shown on the back of the badge). The badge also shows a patent-pending marking (that reads: 'Gesetzlich Geschützt' as can be seen of the pictures). The badge truly retains all of its golden-toned ie. darkened-bronze finish and is IMO only minimally worn (but certainly never cleaned nor polised). The piece is naturally a WWII-era badge and not a 1957-version (something that is easily noticed by the presence of the capital 'R'-character as visible on the bottom of the badge). Simply a nice example of this fairly scarcely encountered and/or very decorative award which is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually fairly scarcely encountered! - so-called: \'HJ\' (\'Hitlerjugend\') district-triangle (ie. \'Gebietsdreieck\') entitled: \'Süd Württemberg\' This is a 'male'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in yellowish-golden-coloured linnen on a black-coloured- (and also linnen-based-) background. This example still retains the remains of its paper-based so-called: 'RzM-etiket' and was (IMO) a piece that was worn ie. once tunic-attached. It does show some minimal age and/or staining, simply caused by decades of storage and/or minimal wear - see pictures. Simply an attractive, male-type 'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') district-triangle that is IMO priced according to its comparative scarcity and/or desirability!

Attractive - and actually fairly scarcely encountered! - \'Deutsches Reiterabzeichen der 3. Klasse\' (ie. \'in Bronze\'), being a neat maker- (ie. \'Steinhauer u. Lück\'-) marked example This is a truly attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - WWII-period-, so-called: 'Deutsches Reiterabzeichen der 3. Klasse' (ie. 'in Bronze'), being a neat being a neat maker- (ie. 'Steinhauer u. Lück'-) marked example that comes in an overall very nice and (IMO) only moderately used ie. worn-), condition. The neat and very detailed award - which comes on its functional pin and/or catch (-set-up) - is a superb bronze-coloured- and/or pronounced specimen as was produced by the: 'Steinhauer u.

The badge truly retains all of its golden-toned ie. darkened-bronze finish and is IMO only minimally worn (but certainly never cleaned nor polised). The piece is naturally a WWII-era badge and not a 1957-version (something that is easily corroborated by the presence of the capital 'R'-character as visible on the bottom of the badge). Simply a nice example of this fairly scarcely encountered and/or very decorative award which is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually never before encountered ie. fully unknown! - white-coloured- and \'BeVo\'-woven armband (ie. \'Armbinde\'), depicting an upright anchor-symbol and text: \'Auskunft\' This is an attractive - and actually never before encountered ie. fully unknown! - (beige-)white-coloured- and/or neatly 'BeVo'-woven armband (ie. 'Armbinde'), depicting an upright anchor-symbol and text: 'Auskunft' (information) and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit minimally used and/or slightly worn-), condition. This band signified that its bearer was an official guide (or alike) and presumably acted as a so-called: 'Lotse' or: factory-guide at a naval-wharf orso. I deem that this armband was worn with the civilian attire (or was worn on some sort of naval-related uniform). The armband - which is approximately 33 x 9,8 cms. sized - comes in a very nice condition: it is just a tiny bit stained and is somewhat wrinkled. Simply a neat and with certainty unusually enocountered TR-era armband that merits further investigative work!
Attractive - and actually never before encountered! - medal: \'Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. März 1938\' (or: Austrian \'Anschluss\'-medal), being of a \'variant\'-pattern that comes mounted on its \'Austrian\'-styled ribbon The very attractive medal comes mounted on its original, neatly confectioned- ie. folded and 'Austrian'-styled ribbon and comes in an overall nice (ie. IMO issued and/or only minimally worn-), condition. The medal is - as stated above - a neat, 'variant'-pattern specimen (having differently styled text and clear impressed figures) as was executed in typical silver-coloured and (IMO) 'zinc-' (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based metal. The medal retains a very attractive (ie. somewhat greyish-coloured-) age-patina and has IMO never been cleaned nor polished and therefore are details still very nicely preserved. The medal is just a bit stained but has nevertheless retained a very detailed and crispy appearance. Simply a neat 'variant'-pattern example that comes mounted on its desirable 'Austrian'-styled ribbon!
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! - (IMO) pre-war-pattern and N.S.D.A.P. (ie. SA-) related marching-accessory (ie. belt-attachment-piece) being a brown-coloured and genuine leather-based example that shows four (glass) based reflectors attached This is an attractive - and actually never before seen! - (IMO) pre-war-pattern and presumably N.S.D.A.P. (ie. SA- or: 'Sturmabteilungen'-) related marching-accessory (ie. belt-attachment-piece) being a brown-coloured- and/or genuine leather-based example that shows four (glass) based reflectors (having a typical brownish colour) attached and that comes in an overall very nice- (and hardly used- ie. worn-), condition. The piece has an overall length of 35 cms. (and is 4 cms. wide) and is totally void of any marking nor date (something that is not unusual for such as early piece). As stated above, does the interesting piece show four (glass-based- and/or orange-coloured-) reflectors attached (which most certainly light-up when being lit by head-lights or alike). The piece was never oiled- nor greased and is fully souple: it shows two (functional) straps with which the piece can be easily mounted onto any TR-era belt (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply an attractive and with certainty unusually encountered N.S.D.A.P. (ie. SA- ie. 'Sturmabteilungen'-) related marching-accessory!
Attractive - and actually never before seen! - colourfull- and/or: \'BeVo\'-like-woven armshield (ie. \'Ärmelschild\') showing the coat of arms of the Hessen-province and swastika-sign and showing the characters: \'J\' and/or: \'U\' This is a very attractive - and actually never before seen! - colourfull- and/or: 'BeVo'-like-woven armshield (ie. 'Ärmelschild') showing the coat of arms of the Hessen-province coupled with a swastika-sign and showing the characters: 'J' and/or: 'U' (as was presumably intended for usage by the member of the TR-period: 'Deutsche Jugendherbergswerk' ie. 'DJH'). The shield was clearly used ie. worn and still shows the signs of having been once tunic-attached (as can be seen on the pictures). It is executed in a 'BeVo'-like-weave technique and does show an interwoven makers'-mark on its folded back (that reads: 'Muster Ges.Gesch.', as can be seen on the pictures). I could not establish the exact purpose of this armshield but assume that it was worn on the civil-attire by youthful supporters and occupants of a youth-hostel (ie. 'Jugendherberg') in the Hessen-province. Simply a very attractive - and with certainty not that often encountered! - woven cloth patch ie. arm-shield: only the first - and possibly only! - example such neat armshield I have ever encountered ie. offered for sale!
Attractive - and actually never before seen! - example of a DRB- (ie. \'Deutsche Reichsbahn\'-) related armband entitled: \'Deutsche Reichsbahn\', being of the \'entirely-woven\'-type in a technique similar to the \'BeVo\'-weave pattern This is an attractive - and actually in this colour never before seen! - example of a DRB- (ie. 'Deutsche Reichsbahn'-) related armband (ie. 'Armbinde') entitled: 'Deutsche Reichsbahn' being of the 'entirely-woven'-type in a technique similar to the 'BeVo'-weave pattern that comes in a moderately used- ie. worn, condition. These linnen-based armbands were 'standard' for usage by the various DRB- (ie. 'Deutsche Reichsbahn'-) officials (and were worn on the left upper-arm of the darker-blue-coloured greatcoats and/or tunics). This example - which has been 'off-factory sewn-together - has a total size of approximately 40 cms. and is 10 cms. wide - and is constructed from golden-yellow-coloured- (and quite shiny-type!) linnen and shows the neatly interwoven text: 'Deutsche Reichsbahn'. The armband shows a clearly present ink-stamp and is just a tiny bit stained and is moreover 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 moderate wear). I have personally never before encountered a similar example (in golden-yellow) and am convinced that this is a scarcely encountered DRB- (ie. 'Deutsche Reichsbahn'-) related armband that was used by a DRB-official!
Attractive - and actually never before seen! - example of a DRB- (ie. \'Deutsche Reichsbahn\'-) related armband entitled: \'Dillenburg\', being of the \'entirely-woven\'-type in a technique similar to the \'BeVo\'-weave pattern This is an attractive - and actually never before seen! - example of a DRB- (ie. 'Deutsche Reichsbahn'-) related armband (ie. 'Armbinde') entitled: 'Dillenburg' being of the 'entirely-woven'-type in a technique similar to the 'BeVo'-weave pattern that comes in a minimally used- ie. worn, condition. These linnen-based armbands were 'standard' for usage by the various DRB- (ie. 'Deutsche Reichsbahn Feuerwehr'-) officials (and were worn on the left upper-arm of the darker-blue-coloured greatcoats and/or tunics). This example - which has been 'off-factory sewn-together - has a total size of approximately 39 cms. and is 10 cms. wide - and is constructed from bright-red-coloured- (and shiny-type!) linnen and shows the neatly interwoven text: 'Dillenburg'. The armband is totally void of an ink-stamp and is just a tiny bit stained and is moreover 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 moderate wear). I have personally never before encountered a similar example and am convinced that this is a rarely encountered DRB- (ie. 'Deutsche Reichsbahn'-) related armband that was used by a DRB-official who served within the station of the German town of Dillenburg in Hessen/Nassau and that is accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually never before seen! - presumably pre-1925, so-called: scouting- (ie. \'Pfadfinderei\'-) related, brass-coloured- (ie. copper-based- and two-pieced-) belt-buckle (showing a detailed lily-flower ie. \'Lilie\') This is an attractive - and actually never before seen! - very earl-period- and presumably pre-1925, so-called: scouting- (ie. 'Pfadfinderei'- or youth-) related, brass-coloured- (ie. copper-based- and two-pieced-) belt-buckle (being a non-maker-example showing a detailed lily-flower ie. 'Lilie') that comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly used- ie. worn-), condition. The buckle is I deem clearly used and/or worn but has still maintained a typical 'copper-based'-finish, having an attractive age-patina without showing any real defaults nor damage (it has never been cleaned nor polished and shows some dust and/or minimal staining). The piece is totally void of any makers'-mark-signification (as is more often encountered). These attractive (two-pieced) youth-related belt-buckles saw only limited usage in the twenties and thirthies (ie. during the period of the so-called: 'Weimar Republik' and before the founding of the Hitler Youth ie. 'Hitlerjugend'). It should be noted that this is a genuine, early piece that is void of the (post-war!!) text ie. motto: 'Allzeit Bereit' (as can be seen on the pictures). I deem that I have priced this attractive and with certainty unusually seen youth- ie. 'Pfadfinderei'-belt-buckle accordingly!
Attractive - and actually never before seen! - silverish-grey-coloured, commemorative D.R.K.B.- (ie.: \'Deutscher Reichskriegerbund\' aka \'Kyffhäuserbund\'-) related medal: \'20. Deutsches Bundes-Schiessen - Leipzig - 1934\' This is a truly attractive - and actually never before seen! - silverish-grey-coloured- (and I deem 'Buntmetall'-based) so-called: commemorative D.R.K.B.- (ie.: 'Deutscher Reichskriegerbund' aka 'Kyffhäuserbund'-) related medal or award depicting the famous 'Kyffhäuser'-monument, a sun-burst-swastika and text that reads: '20. Deutsches Bundes-Schiessen - Leipzig - 1934' and that comes in an overall very nicely preserved condition. The award came without a ribbon (but was clearly intended to be mounted) and is very detailed and pronounced: it retains all its period-applied finish and was (I deem) never cleaned nor polished. The award - which was apparently awarded to commemorate a shooting-contest held in the town of Leipzig in the year 1934 - has an approximate diameter of 4 cms. and is simply nicely preserved. Simply an attractive - and with certainty unusually seen! - early-period, D.R.K.B.-related commemorative medal that would merit further investigative work!
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! - customs-related cuff-title (ie. \'Ärmelstreifen des Reichsfinanzverwaltung- o. Zollgrenzschutz\') being a detailed example as executed in the so-called: \'flatwire\'- (ie. \'BeVo-weave\'-) pattern This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - customs-related cuff-title (ie. 'Ärmelstreifen des Reichsfinanzverwaltung- o. Zollgrenzschutz') being a detailed- (and presumably issued albeit never worn) example that is executed in the neatly woven so-called: 'flatwire'- (ie. 'BeVo-weave'-) pattern and that comes in a 'virtually mint'- and never tunic-attached, condition. The cuff-title - which is a full-length example that measures 50 (!) cms. in length (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece originates from a private household in Germany where it was recently found and belonged to a Customs-official who was issued this example and stored it for decades. Simply a decorative 'Zoll'-related item that is actually not that often encountered: I deem that I have priced this neat item accordingly!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - customs-related cuff-title (ie. \'Ärmelstreifen des Reichsfinanzverwaltung- o. Zollgrenzschutz\') being a detailed- (and clearly worn!) example that comes in a used- ie. tunic-removed, condition This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - customs-related cuff-title (ie. 'Ärmelstreifen des Reichsfinanzverwaltung- o. Zollgrenzschutz') being a detailed- (and clearly worn!) example that is executed in the neatly woven so-called: 'flatwire'- (ie. 'BeVo-weave'-) pattern and that comes in a clearly used- and/or tunic-removed, condition. The cuff-title - which is period-shortened and measures now 38 cms. in length - still shows some thread- and stitching-remains with which it was once tunic-attached (as can be seen on the pictures). It shows a tiny, period-repaired tear and is minimally stained. The piece originates from a private household where it was found together with a visor-cap-eagle and dito pair of 'cyphered' shoulderboards (which are offered under respectively the nrs. 42897 and 42898: all three items belonged to the same Customs-official who wore these and after that stored these for decades). Simply a nice and attractive 'Zoll'-related item that is actually not that often encountered: I deem that I have priced this neat item accordingly!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - customs-related visor-cap-eagle (ie. \'Hoheitszeichen des Reichsfinanzverwaltung- o. Zollgrenzschutz\') being a detailed- (and clearly worn!) example that comes in a used- ie. cap-removed, condition This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - customs-related visor-cap-eagle (ie. 'Hoheitszeichen des Reichsfinanzverwaltung- o. Zollgrenzschutz') being a detailed- (and clearly worn!) example that is executed in aluminium-based metal and that comes in a clearly used- and/or cap-removed, condition. The eagle has truly great pronounced detail and naturally retains all its three, golden-toned pins ie. prongs (which were once bent but which are still functional). The non-maker-marked piece - which is left-facing and having an approximate wing-span of 7 cms. - has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished and has a fairly bright- and/or shiny 'age-patina' (having some polished parts as to be expected). The cap-eagle originates from a private household where it was found together with a cuff-title and dito pair of 'cyphered' shoulderboards (which are offered under respectively the nrs. 42896 and 42898: all three items belonged to the same Customs-official who wore these and after that stored these for decades). Simply a nice and attractive 'Zoll'-related item that is actually not that often encountered: I deem that I have priced this neat item accordingly!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - customs-related, \'cyphered\' NCO-type shoulderboard-pair (ie. \'Schulterstücke des Reichsfinanzverwaltung- o. Zollgrenzschutz\') being a pair that was intended for usage by a: \'Zollsekretar\' This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - customs-related, 'cyphered' NCO-type shoulderboard-pair (ie. 'Schulterstück-Paar des Reichsfinanzverwaltung- o. Zollgrenzschutz') being a pair that was intended for usage by an official who held the rank of: 'Zollsekretar' (comparable with the NCO-rank of 'Oberfeldwebel' (or: sergeant first-class) and that comes in a clearly used- and/or tunic-removed, condition. The shoulderboards - which are 'text-book' in all facets and measure approximately 11 cms. in length each - are executed in the typical, darker-green-coloured- and 'smooth-type' wool having the silverish-grey- and green-striped (ie. somewhat 'sub-dued'-) upperdecks: I deem that as such they were intended for usage on a 'regular front-used' tunic. The boards come mounted on their (smaller-sized-) tongues and show just some minimal age caused by decades of storage only (as can be seen on the pictures). Both boards show matching pairs of (regular-sized-, identical and neatly golden-toned- and IMO 'Buntmetall'-based-): 'RFV'-cyphers and/or four pips attached (denoting the NCO-rank of: 'Zollsekretar'). All six devices are just minimally tarnished but are still very nice and/or pronounced (as can be seen on the pictures). The shoulderboards originate from a private household where they were found together with a cuff-title and dito visor-cap eagle (which are offered under respectively the nrs. 42896 and 42897: all three items belonged to the same Customs-official who wore these and after that stored these for decades). Simply a nice and attractive 'Zoll'-related shoulderboard-pair that is actually not that often encountered: I deem that I have priced this neat item accordingly!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - early- (ie. mid-war-) pattern-, WH (Heeres) cocarde as executed in bluish-grey-coloured linnen as intended for usage on the: \'Pz\'-beret (ie. \'Panzerschutzmütze\') I recently uncovered two - fully identical and actually not that easily encountered! - examples of the early- (ie. mid-war-) pattern-, WH (Heeres) specific cocarde as were executed in greyish-blue-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, both pieces coming in an 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! - 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.

Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - example of a: \'Panzerkampfabzeichen in Silber\' being a maker- (ie. \'R.K.\'-) marked- and/or zinc- (ie. \'Feinzink\'-) based specimen as was produced by the: \'Rudolf Karneth\'-company This is a very attractive - albeit IMO minimally worn but nevertheless not that easily encountered! - example of a: 'Panzerkampfabzeichen in Silber' (or: silver panzer assault-badge ie. PAB), being a neatly maker- (ie. 'R.K.'-) marked- and/or zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based specimen that was produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller'): 'Rudolf Karneth' based in the town of Gablonz and that comes in an overall very nice (albeit issued- and/or minimally worn-), condition. The badge on offer here concerns an (IMO later-war-period-) zinc- ie. 'Feinzink'-based specimen that retains most of its silver-coloured finish and that has maintained an attractive appearance, still showing pronounced detail 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 above does it deal with a so-called: 'semi-hollow zinc'-pattern (as is uniquely numbered with the reference-number: '3.2.1.' according to the excellent reference-work entitled: 'The Panzer-Assault badge of WWII' by my Belgian friend Philippe de Bock). The neat piece naturally shows all the details as to be expected for a badge by this particular maker. It was recently found as such at a German flea-market and was never before part of a collection. It was simply never cleaned nor polished. Simply a nice and honest silver-class, so-called: 'semi-hollow zinc'-pattern-PAB that comes in a very nice condition: I deem that this honest example is accordingly priced!
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! - example of an early- (ie. 1935-pattern-) so-called: \'DLV\' (ie. \'Deutscher Luftsport Verband\') metal- (ie. nickle-chrome-) 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.

'Koppelschloss') being a non-maker-marked specimen (showing a 'first model' so-called: 'drooped winged'-eagle-device) that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used- and/or worn), condition. The piece is IMO only moderately used and/or worn and does show some minimal age, staining and/or wear (especially on its back as can be seen on the pictures). The metal- (ie. nickle-chrome-) based buckle - that originates from a private household in Germany where it was recently found - retains a fully preserved (black-painted) swastika-area and shows a fully preserved silver-finish (see pictures). The piece is very detailed and retains great, pronounced detail overall. Simply a very attractive and 'early-period- and/or Luftwaffe-related'- so-called: 'Deutscher Luftsport Verband'-belt buckle that is IMO accordingly priced!

Unteroffiziere des Deutschen Luftsport Verbandes') being a non-maker-marked- and 'two-pieced' specimen (showing a 'first model' so-called: 'drooped winged'-eagle-device) and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used- and/or worn), condition. The piece is only moderately used and/or worn and does show some minimal age, staining and/or wear (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece retains an almost fully preserved (black-painted) swastika-area and has a nicely preserved silver-finish (see pictures).

Attractive - and actually not that easily 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'), typically aluminium-based (ie. 'molded-style') belt-buckle (ie. 'Koppelschloss für Mannschaften der Hitlerjugend') being a clearly maker- (ie. 'RzM - M4/38'-) marked example that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. I deem issued albeit hardly worn- nor even used-) condition. The buckle still retains extraordinary detail as to be expected. The piece has a typical silver-coloured- and somewhat 'shiny' appearance and has never been cleaned nor polished (it has just acquired some minimal blackened tarnish ie. dirt over the years and shows some minimal wear-marks ie. 'scratches' caused by minimal wear and/or uncareful handling or alike). It is as stated above showing the makers'-designation: 'RzM - M4/38' on its back (as can be clearly seen in the pictures) and is thus a piece that was with certainty produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller') named: 'Richard Sieper & Söhne' based in town of Lüdenscheid. This buckle orginates from an older belt-buckle-collection that was compiled over many years and that I recently acquired for the web-site. Simply an attractive 'variant'-pattern, youth-related belt-buckle which is actually not that commonly encountered in this alumnium-based- ie. 'molded'-pattern!
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!

'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!

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'!

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'.

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'!

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!

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.

Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - so-called: RAD (ie. \'Reichsarbeitsdienst\') officers\'-pattern cuff-title (or: \'Ärmelstreifen\') depicting the interwoven text: \'Emsland 1\' This is a truly attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - officers'-version of a so-called: RAD (ie. 'Reichsarbeitsdienst') commemorative cuff-title (ie.: 'Ärmelstreifen für Offiziere des Reichsarbeitsdienstes') depicting the interwoven text: 'Emsland 1' (as was possibly intended for a RAD senior-official who served within Emsland-area) and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. only moderately used- ie. most certainly once tunic-attached-), condition. These attractive cuff-titles were worn on the left sleeve of the mustard-coloured (officers'-type-) RAD-tunics and/or garments. The cuff-title - which shows the bright-silver-coloured text: 'Emsland 1' - is neatly executed in so-called 'flat-wire'-like 'BeVo'-weave technique and was as such intended for an officer who served within this specific area. The piece comes in a full-length- and non-shortened condition (and measures: 37 cms. in length) as to be expected and originates from a smaller collection of rarely seen RAD cloth-insignia I recently acquired for the web-site. Of additional interest is, moreover, the interwoven makers'-designation (which is visible on one of the ends). It should be noted that all RAD officers'-type 'Ärmelstreifen' are comparatively scarcely encountered!

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!

The towels - which are approximately 96 x 53,5 cms. sized - do show two horizontally mounted- and/or darker-blue-coloured stripes - were simply never used and still retain a somewhat 'hardened touch': they just show some minimal aging ie. staining simply caused by decades of storage only. 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 easily encountered! - WH (Luftwaffe) \'standard-issue\'-pattern side-cap-cocarde (ie. \'Kokarde für Schiffchen\') I recently found nine - fully identical! - examples of the - actually not that easily encountered! - WH (Luftwaffe) 'standard-issue'-pattern-, side-cap-cocarde (ie. 'Kokarde für Schiffchen') all nine pieces coming in an overall very nice (and never used- nor side-cap-attached-), condition. It should be noted that these side-cap- (ie. 'Schiffchen'-) insignia-pieces are quite difficult to encounter when needed. All nine pieces - which are neatly machine-embroidered on a slightly thinner-shaped and/or bluish-green-coloured- and/or linnen-based background - have a carton-based ïnner-section and show some minimal storage-age only and can excellently be used to complete any LW-side-cap (ie. 'Luftwaffe-Schiffchen'). The asking-price is naturally intended per single cocarde. Simply a very attractive Luftwaffe-related, side-cap insignia-piece that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - white-beige-coloured, HJ- (ie. \'Hitlerjugend\'-) related day-badge (ie. \'tinnie\') as was issued to commemorate the: \'Gebietstreffen der Fränkischen Hitlerjugend 1939\' This is an attractive - and actually not that easily seen! - HJ- (ie. 'Hitlerjugend'-) related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie') as executed in beige-/white-coloured- and/or 'resin'-based material as was issued to commemorate a specific HJ-rally ie. sports-gathering entitled the: 'Gebietstreffen der Fränkischen Hitlerjugend 1939' and that comes in an overall very nicely preserved- (albeit issued ie. moderately worn-), condition. The very detailed and/or pronounced badge shows extraordinary detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished: all of its somewhat shiny and beige-/white-coloured finish has been nicely preserved (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece shows a typical HJ-eagle-device holding a sword and is surrounded by the text as mentioned above. The badge - which shows a neat makers'-designation: 'R.Sieper u. Söhne - Lüdenscheid' as well as the 'RzM M9/25'-designation on its back - comes naturally mounted onto its (fully functional-) pin- ie. catch set-up. Simply a neat - and most certainly not that often encountered! - HJ-related 'tinnie'!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - \'Ärmelabzeichen des Standschützenbataillon Imst\' (being a neatly machine-embroidered- and/or \'Raute\'-sized example) This is a very attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - so-called: 'Ärmelabzeichen des Standschützenbataillon Imst' being a neatly machine-embroidered- and/or 'Raute'-sized example that comes in a (I deem) never used- nor tunic-attached, condition. The truly colourful patch is nicely machine-embroidered onto a piece of darker-green wool and was I deem never used- nor tunic-attached. It shows a (typical) beige-coloured- and/or 'buckram'-based backing (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a neat occasion to acquire a fairly rarely seen - later-war-period arm-patch that was intended for usage by a member that served within one of the Austrian-based so-called: 'Standschützenbataillone'!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - \'DR\'- (ie. \'Deutscher Reichsbahn\'- ie. \'Bahnschutz-Polizei\'-) related visor-cap-eagle and cocarde-set (ie. \'Hoheitszeichensatz des Bahnschutzpolizei\') This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - 'DR'- (ie. 'Deutscher Reichsbahn'- ie. 'Bahnschutz-Polizei'-) related (NCO- ie. EM-pattern) visor-cap-eagle and cocarde-set (also known as. 'Hoheitszeichensatz des Bahnschutzpolizei') being a detailed- (and clearly worn!) fully matching set as executed in molded zinc (ie. 'Feinzink') and that comes in an overall nice, albeit used- ie. cap-removed, condition. Both (non-maker-marked) pieces have truly great pronounced detail and naturally retain all their golden-toned pins ie. prongs (which were once bent but which are still functional). The non-maker-marked pieces - of which the eagle is left-facing and having an approximate wing-span of 6,5 cms. - have most certainly never been cleaned nor polished and have a fairly dull- ie. typical zinc-like 'age-patina' (both pieces show some tarnish ie. are somewhat stained). The wreath comes with an aluminium-based cocarde (that also retains both its prongs). This attractive visor-cap-set originates from a private household where it was recently found together and belonged to the same 'Bahnschutz-Polizei'-official who wore these and after that stored these for decades. Simply a nice and attractive 'Bahnschutz-Polizei'-related item that is actually not that often encountered: I deem that I have priced this neat visor-cap-set accordingly!
Attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - \'Leistungsabzeichen des Standschützenverband Tirol-Vorarlberg\' (being a neatly enamelled so-called: \'Gauleistungsabzeichen in Silber für Pistole - 1942\' This is a very attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - 'Leistungsabzeichen des Standschützenverband Tirol-Vorarlberg' being a so-called: 'Gauleistungsabzeichen in Silber für Pistole - 1942' that comes in a minimally worn-, albeit fully undamaged and nicely preserved-, 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- ie. pin-catch set-up (see pictures). It retains a fully undamaged, silver-toned finish and has an undamaged, red- ie. green-coloured- and/or 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: 'A61M' and is given an estimated value of 100 Eu. This example originates from a German flea-market and was never before in a collection. I deem that I priced this attractive and/or nicely preserved 'high-quality-produced' example of a: 'Gauleistungsabzeichen in Silber für Pistole - 1942', accordingly!

'Feinzink'-) based and detailed example showing the text ie. date: 'Kreis-Schiessen Kufstein 1944' and that comes in a minimally worn-, albeit fully undamaged and/or nicely preserved-, condition. The oval-shaped 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- ie. pin-catch set-up (see pictures). It retains a nicely preserved, silver-toned finish that has somewhat tarnished over the years (and has never been cleaned nor polished). These attractive badges were awarded (in three classes resp. bronze, silver and/or gold) and are actually not that commonly encountered. A similar example of this series is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken Abzeichen-Katalog' wherein this particular example is referenced under the unique number: 'A62B' and is given an estimated value of 150 Eu.

These attractive insignia-sets were used by members of the 'Kriegsmarine' and were intended for the blue-attire side-caps (ie. 'Schiffchen'). This neat set comes in a clearly used- and/or cap-removed condition: it does show some minimal age and/or staining simply caused by having been moderately used. It should be noted that especially the darker-blue-coloured KM-cocardes are very hard to encounter. Simply a neat WH (Kriegsmarine)-related side-cap eagle- and dito cocarde insignia-set!

Attractive - and actually not that easily found! - so-called: \'OT\'- (ie. \'Organisation Todt\'-) related, light-brown-coloured- and/or linnen-based NCO-type arm-badge (ie. \'Ärmelabzeichen für Unterführer\') This is an attractive - and actually not that easily found! - example of a so-called: 'OT'- (ie. 'Organisation Todt'-) related, light-brown-coloured- and/or linnen-based NCO-type arm-badge (ie. 'Ärmelabzeichen für Unterführer') that comes in an overall very nice (IMO never used- nor tunic-attached-), condition. The neat patch - which measures: 9,7 x 7,5 cms. - is executed in beige-brownish coloured linnen and shows the (orange-red-coloured- and nicely machine-embroidered) 'OT'-characters coupled with two (linnen-based) rank-stripes. To date the exact usage and or OT-NCO-rank could not yet be established. In any case an attractive so-called: 'OT'-related arm-badge (ie. 'Ärmelabzeichen für Unterführer') that is IMO accordingly priced!

These attractive insignia-sets were used by the various members of the 'Kriegsmarine' (ie. 'Küsten-Artillerie') and were intended for usage onto the side-caps (ie. 'Schiffchen') but also saw usage on the so-called: 'M43-type'-field-caps (or: 'Einheitsfeldmützen'). The eagle is nicely executed in golden-yellow-toned linnen on a typical field-grey-coloured background. The cocarde shows an identical background and both insignia-pieces were most certainly once mounted onto a cap. This neat set was recently found in Germany and was carefully cap-removed: it does show some minor age and/or staining simply caused by moderate wear and/or years of storage. Simply a neat WH (Kriegsmarine) ie. 'Küsten-Artillerie'-related side-cap eagle- and cocarde insignia-set that is accordingly priced!

'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 not that often found! - bluish-grey-coloured- and canvas-based WH (Heeres, Waffen-SS etc.) so-called: receiver-cover for the M34-machine-gun (ie. \'Systemschutz für das MG34\') This is an attractive - and actually not that often found! - WH weapon- ie. equipment-item: a bluish-grey-coloured- and/or (heavy) canvas-based, WH (Heeres, Waffen-SS etc.) so-called: receiver-cover for the (heavy) MG34-machine-gun (ie. 'Systemschutz für das MG34') being a non-maker-marked example that is bearing a clearly present 'Waffenabnahme'-stamp and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. 'virtually mint-/ie. unissued' example. The cover retains all its (leather-based) straps and has all its metal-based snaps in place: it is (partly) lined with typical 'padded' (horse-hair-based) 'cushions' and greyish-blue-coloured 'rubber'-like material and retains its (metal-based) 'snap-on'-hook (onto which attachment also the 'Waffenabnahme'-stamp is to be found (as more often). These covers were a most welcome - and needed! - WH weapon-accesory and kept the (fragile) system of the heavy machine-gun MG34 clean and/or functional under all circumstances. I have seen similar examples being offered for almost the double of my asking-price!
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 (ie. \'Mützenabzeichen\') as was intended for usage on a visor-cap of the: \'Nationalsozialistischer Kriegsopfer-Versorgung\' (ie.: \'N.S.K.O.V.\') This is an attractive - and actually quite scarcely encountered! - metal-based- (ie. nickle-chrome-based) cap-badge (ie.

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- and red-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 quite scarcely encountered! - RAD (ie. \'Reichsarbeitsdienst\') so-called: \'Traditions-Mützenabzeichen\' as was intended for a member who served within the: \'Arbeitsgau XVII\' (= Niedersachsen-Ost) This is an attractive example of an - actually scarcely encountered! - RAD- (ie.: 'Reichsarbeitsdienst'-) related so-called: 'Traditions-Mützenabzeichen' as was intended for (and with certainty worn by) an RAD-member who served within the region: 'Arbeitsgau XV' (being situated in the province of Niedersachsen-Ost) and that comes in an overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. carefully cap-removed-) , condition. The detailed metal-based badge is executed in silverish-coloured metal (ie. aluminium) and depicts two 'crossed horse-heads' with below that a swastika-sign. The badge retains all its four, copper-based prongs (for attachment onto the cap). A similar badge is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken lapel-pin-catalogue', wherein it is given a unique reference-number (3805JG) and an estimated value of 150 Eu. The badge on offer here was I deem never cleaned nor polished and still retains a nice and minimally tarnished age-patina. Simply a neat and actually not that often encountered (semi-official!) RAD-related 'Traditions-Mützenabzeichen'!
Attractive - and actually quite scarcely encountered! - so-called: \'HJ\' (\'Hitlerjugend\') district-triangle (ie. \'Gebietsdreieck\') entitled: \'Ost Berlin\' This is a 'male'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in yellowish-golden-coloured linnen on a black-coloured- (and also linnen-based-) background. This example is void of a paper-based so-called: 'RzM-etiket' and is a piece that was clearly worn ie. once tunic-attached: the stitching-remains are still clearly present. It does, however, shows some minimal age and/or staining, simply caused by decades of storage and moderate wear - see pictures. This is one of the more scarcely encountered examples of the extensive 'Gebietsdreiecken'-series. In any case an attractive, male-type 'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') district-triangle that is IMO priced according to its comparative scarcity and/or desirability!

Luftwaffe) officers\'-pattern side-cap-cocarde (ie. \'Mützenkokarde für Offiziers-Schiffchen\') that comes in a \'virtually mint- ie. unissued\', condition I recently found five - fully identical! - examples of the actually truly scarcely encountered! - WH (Heeres o. Luftwaffe) officers'-pattern side-cap-cocarde (ie. 'Mützenkokarde für Offiziers-Schiffchen') that come all five in an overall very nice- ie. 'virtually mint- ie. unissued', condition. It should be noted that these neat officers'-pattern side-cap- (ie. 'Schiffchen'-) insignia-pieces are quite difficult to encounter (and come hardly ever for sale). The pieces are neatly executed in multi-coloured 'braid' and show a (black-coloured- and/or carton-based-) backing (as is more often seen). The pieces show some dust and tarnish, simply caused by decades of storage only. The quality of the used embroidery is truly stunning: it is quite thick and pronounced in execution and the pieces can easily be graded as piece of the 'Extra Qualität'. The pieces show a black-coloured- (and 'braid'-based) 'outer-rim' (as can be seen on the pictures). My asking-price is naturally intended per single piece. Simply a great replacement-item that is ideally fitted to restore any quality officers'-type side-cap (ie. 'Schiffchen für Offiziere')!

Attractive - and actually rarely encountered and possibly unique! - multi-coloured, machine-embroidered- (ie. \'variant-type\'-) armshield as was intended for a Russian volunteer of the \'Russian Liberation Army\' (ie. \'POA\') This is a truly very attractive - and with certainty rarely encountered and possibly unique! - multi-coloured and neatly machine-embroidered- (ie. 'variant-type'-) armshield as was intended for a Russian volunteer (possibly an officer) who served within the 'Russian Liberation Army' (ie. 'POA') and that comes in an overall very nice (ie. IMO minimally used- and/or 'cut-out'-), condition. The arm-shield on offer here is executed on 'typical' officers'-pattern wool (and still shows the greyish lining on its back) that shows multi-coloured stitching as executed in so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei' (something that is truly unusual and actually never before seen). The shield comes in a minimally used- ie. worn condition and is minimally stained (as can be seen on the pictures). In any case is this a very attractive - and as stated above possibly unique! - Russian-volonteer-related 'POA'-armshield: I am convinced that this is the only such example I will ever have on offer!
Attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - golden-yellow-coloured- and/or linnen-based armband (ie. \'Armbinde\') entitled: \'Waffen-SS\' that comes in an overall very nice, albeit clearly used ie. worn, condition This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - golden-yellow-coloured- and/or linnen-based armband (ie. 'Armbinde') entitled: 'Waffen-SS' and that comes in an overall very nice, albeit clearly used ie. worn-, condition. These neat pieces were intended for usage by the various non-uniformed troops serving under the jurisdiction of the 'Waffen-SS' ie. 'Sicherheitsdienst' (or 'SD'). The armband - which measures in total 39 cms. in length - comes in an overall very nice, albeit moderately used, condition and shows some minimal age and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece is beautifully woven using a specific (almost 'BeVo'-like!) weave-technique. Simply an attractive and scarcely encountered armband: only the third such example I have ever had on offer!
Attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - pair of TeNo (ie. \'Technische Nothilfe\') officers\'-type collar-patches that belonged to a: \'Kameradschaftsführer des Ortsgruppe XVII/17\' and that comes with a period-picture of the bearer This is a truly very attractive - matching and actually rarely encountered! - pair of TeNo (ie. 'Technische Nothilfe') officers'-type (and partly hand-embroidered!) collar-patches (ie. 'Kragenspiegel') that belonged to a: 'Kameradschaftsführer des Ortsgruppe XVII/17' (being a rank comparable with the rank of: lieutnant) and that comes with a picture of the bearer depicting the pair in wear. The attractive and/or very detailed tabs - which were intended for usage on the various TeNo (ie. 'Technische Nothilfe' or technical emergency service) officers-type tunics - were clearly used and/or once tunic-attached. Both tabs are executed in (smooth-type) black-coloured wool and show the (partly hand-embroidered and partly aluminium-based) typical TeNo-insignia attached: moreover, are they piped with the typical silver/black-striped braid (as can be seen on the pictures). The pair came with a period portrait-picture of the bearer depicting this pair in wear. This nice portrait (which measures 13,5 x 9 cms. and that is void of any writing) shows more interesting details such as a large-sized- (ie. 7-pieced!) medal-bar being worn. These neat TeNo (ie. 'Technische Nothilfe') collar-tabs can easily be graded: 'rare' and come not that often for sale: even more so when they come with a period portrait seeing this particular pair being worn!
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! - SA- (ie. \'Sturmabteilungen\'-) related officers\'-type armbadge (ie. \'Ärmelabzeichen für Führer\') as was intended for an: \'SA-Führer\' (ie. \'Feldscher o.

'Ärmelabzeichen für Führer') as was woven in silver-coloured- (so-called: 'BeVo flat-wire'-pattern-) braid on a typical brown-coloured background as was intended for an: 'SA-Führer' (ie. 'Feldscher o. Arzt') and that comes in an overall very nice- (IMO virtually mint- ie. unissued- and never shirt-attached-), condition. The nicely woven insignia is only sized: 6,5 x 6 cms. and comes as 'cut-off the role': moreover, does it still retain its paper-based-, so-called: 'RzM'-etiket. Simply an attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - SA- (ie. 'Sturmabteilungen'-) related armbadge ie. 'Ärmelabzeichen für Führer'!

Attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - so-called: N.S.S. (ie. \'Nationalsocialistische Schwesternschaft\') membership-badge as executed in genuine \'800\'-marked silver, as was specifically intended for: \'Lernschwester und Anwärterinnen\' This is an attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - so-called: N.S.S. (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 actually rarely encountered! - TeNo (ie. \'Technische Nothilfe\') officers\'-type arm-eagle, being an example that is executed in so-called: \'BeVo\'-weave \'flat-wire\'-pattern This is an attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - TeNo (ie. 'Technische Nothilfe') officers'-type arm-eagle, being an example that is executed in so-called: 'BeVo'-weave 'flat-wire'-pattern and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit IMO worn and/or carefully album-removed-), condition. The arm-eagle - which is neatly machine-embroidered in silver-braid on a very dark-blue- (almost black-) coloured and/or linnen-based background - shows extraordinary detail. These neat insignia were worn on the upper left-arm of the dark-blue (officers'-) type 'TeNo' uniforms and/or tunics. This piece originates from a private house-hold and was never before part of a collection. The piece was a stated above once glued into an album or scrapbook and was carefully removed: it still shows some carton-remains on its back (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very attractive - and most certainly desirable! - piece of arm-insignia of unquestionable rarity: only the second such rare example 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 (Heeres) \'Panzer\'-related pin (ie. \'Traditions- o. Erinnerungsabzeichen\') as was worn by members of the \'26. Panzer-Division\' This is a very attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - silver-greyish-toned, WH (Heeres) 'Panzer'-related pin (ie. 'Traditions- o. Erinnerungsabzeichen') as was worn by members of the: '26. Panzer-Division' and that comes in an 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 tactical-symbol of the '26.-Pz.Div.' (aka: 'Grenadierkopf') and comes in an overall very nice- (and IMO hardly used- nor worn-), condition: it was made of greyish-toned-, zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink') that retains a typical zinc-like finish. The piece comes naturaly mounted on both its (thin-shaped) prongs and has a slightly darkened age-patina: it was, however, never 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 mounted on its functional pin-/catch-set-up - is also figured in the Heering-Hüsken lapel-pin-catalogue, wherein it is given a unique reference-number: 9838A and an estimated value of 350 Euro. As possibly known have these pins a 'semi-official status': these pins were, however, awarded with an accompanying, specific (small-sized-) award-document and were also appropiately entered in both: 'Wehrpass' and/or 'Soldbuch'. Simply a very attractive and desirable 'Panzer'-related item that is IMO accordingly priced!

Attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - WH (KM) officers\'-type, side-cap eagle as executed in the \'BeVo\'-weave \'flat-wire\'-pattern as was specifically intended for usage by the various naval administrative-officials (ie. \'Beamten der KM\') This is a truly attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine) officers'-type, side-cap eagle (ie. 'Adler für Schiffchen') as executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave 'flat-wire'-pattern as was specifically intended for usage by the various naval administrative-officials (ie. 'Beambten der Kriegsmarine') and that comes in a very nice (ie. clearly issued- and/or once cap-attached-), condition. This example - having a 'wingspan' of approximately 7,2 cms. - is nicely machine-woven in the neat 'BeVo'-weave 'flat-wire'-pattern and shows the (bright) silver-thread on a darker-blue-coloured- (and linnen-based-) background. This example was - as stated above - clearly used- and/or once cap-attached: it has been neatly pre-folded- and/or confectioned. The piece does show some minimal stitching-remains and is minimally tarnished: it is, however, void of any damage nor staining ie. corroded areas (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very attractive example of a rarely seen WH (Kriegsmarine) officers'-type, side-cap eagle that was executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave 'flat-wire'-pattern that can naturally easily be attached to any 'Kriegsmarine'-side-cap or to be simply kept in any eagles'-collection!
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 rarely encountered! - WH (Luftwaffe) neatly hand-embroidered-, officers\'-type armbadge, as was specifically intended for usage by (senior-) staff serving within the: \'Flieger-Technische Vorschule der Luftwaffe\' This is a truly attractive - and/or neatly detailed and actually rarely encountered! - example of a neatly hand-embroidered, WH (Luftwaffe) neatly hand-embroidered-, officers'-type armbadge, as was specifically intended for usage by (senior- ie. comissioned-) staff serving within one of the: 'Flieger-Technische Vorschulen der Luftwaffe' and that comes in a very nice (ie. clearly issued- and/or once tunic-attached-), condition. The attractive patch is executed in silver-coloured- and/or 'braid'-based material on a bluish-grey-coloured- and woolen-based background and has an approximate diameter of 5,8 cms. The piece does show some minimal stitching-remains and is minimally tarnished: it is, however, void of any damage nor staining ie. corroded areas (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece shows a beige-coloured 'backing' as is more often observed (see pictures). Simply a very attractive example of a: 'Flieger-Technische Vorschule der Luftwaffe'-arm-patch!
Attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - \'variant-type\'- and/or neatly maker- (ie. \'L/24\'-) marked-, silver wound-badge (or: \'Verwundeten Abzeichen in Silber\') as was produced by the: \'Fritz Zimmermann\'-company This is an attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - 'variant-type'- and/or neatly maker- (ie. 'L/24'-) marked-, silver wound-badge (or: 'Verwundeten Abzeichen in Silber') as was produced by the: 'Fritz Zimmermann'-company that comes in an overall nice- (albeit IMO moderately worn- ie. used-), condition. The badge - which is executed in silvered zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink') - shows regular age and/or wear and has a correct - and/or fully functional - pin-/catch set-up as to be expected. The badge has never been cleaned and shows some normal - albeit minimal darkened - tarnish: as more often with these specific WBs is most of its silverish-finish missing (as can be seen on the pictures). The badge is nicely maker-marked with the makers'-designation: 'L/24' on its back signifying that it deals with a typical WB as was produced by the 'Fritz Zimmermann' (aka: 'FZZ'-) company, based in the town of Stuttgart. This type of WB is very easily identified due to its 'semi-hollow' back and fairly light-weight. In any case a desirable and actually quite rarely encountered silver-class WB that is not that often offered for sale!

Attractive - and actually rarely seen! - HJ (ie. \'Hitlerjugend\') pre-war- (ie. after 1938-) so-called: \'Ärmelabzeichen\' (ie. arm-badge) that was intended for usage by a member who served within the so-called: \'Luftsportscharen\' This is an attractive - and actually rarely seen! - HJ (ie. 'Hitlerjugend') pre-war- (ie. after 1938-) so-called: 'Ärmelabzeichen' (ie. arm-badge) that was intended for usage by a member who served within the so-called: 'Luftsportscharen' being an example that comes in an overall nice- (abeit clearly used- and/or tunic-removed-), condition. The neat patch - which is nicely woven in so-called: 'BeVo'-like type weave - depicts a pair of white-coloured- and stylised wings and propellor, overlaid with a white-edged, black-coloured swastika as set on a red circle, all on a tan-coloured background. Although the 'Luftsportscharen' (or: air-sports squad) was set-up under the auspices of the DLV (or: 'Deutches Luftsport Verband') it became generally known as: 'Flieger-HJ'. This example still shows some minimal stitching remains and shows minimal usage and wear (some minimal wear and/or staining is visible): it was, moreover, minimally 'trimmed' and stitched as such on a shirt. Simply an attractive and rarely seen youth-related patch that does not come often for sale: I deem that I have priced this attractive example accordingly!

'Hitlerjugend') pre-war- (ie. after 1938-) so-called: 'Ärmelabzeichen' (ie. arm-badge) that was intended for usage by a member who served within the so-called: 'Luftsportscharen' being an example that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. 'virtually mint- ie. unissued' and/or never tunic- e. shirt-attached-), condition. The neat patch - which is nicely woven in so-called: 'BeVo'-like type weave - depicts a pair of white-coloured- and stylised wings and propellor, overlaid with a white-edged, black-coloured swastika as set on a red circle, all on a tan-coloured background. Although the 'Luftsportscharen' (or: air-sports squad) was set-up under the auspices of the DLV (or: 'Deutches Luftsport Verband') it became generally known as: 'Flieger-HJ'. This example still shows some minimal storage-age only. Simply an attractive and rarely seen youth-related patch that does not come often for sale: I deem that I have priced this attractive example accordingly!

Attractive - and actually rarely seen! - WH (Heeres) breasteagle (ie. \'Brustadler für Mannschaften u. Unteroffiziere\') being of the \'last-ditch\'- (ie. later-war-period-) and/or entirely \'printed\'-pattern This is an attractive - and actually rarely encountered! - WH (Heeres) breasteagle (ie. 'Brustadler für Mannschaften u. Unteroffiziere') being of the 'last-ditch'- (ie. later-war-period-) and entirely 'printed'-pattern and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. never used- ie. 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'-), condition. These printed versions of the 'standard-pattern' army-type breasteagle were introduced in late 1944 ie. the beginning of 1945 and saw only limited usage. They are sometimes found on the - battle-dress like-model-, so-called: '1944-type' Heeres tunics. I personally have also seen this printed-type eagles being (originally!) attached to such a late-war M44-tunic. The piece on offer here comes in a never confectioned format and is just a tiny bit stained and/or does show some minimal wrinkled areas (simply caused by handling over the years). The piece came as 'straightly cut-out' of a larger sheet (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a truly rarely encountered WH (Heeres) breast-eagle that comes in a never used- ie. 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'- condition!
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!

Mai 1933\' The attractive - and with certainty fairly high-quality produced! - lapel-pin (ie. 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen') is depicting a hammer- and swastika-device coupled with the text: '1. Mai 1933'. It is executed in silver-coloured- and - I deem - 'Buntmetall'-based metal and only shows minimal wear and/or age but nevertheless retains a nicely preserved surface without showing any defaults. The badge - which measures approximately 3,7 cm. in height - comes naturally mounted on its functional pin-/catch set-up (as can be seen on the pictures). The very attractive and/or pronounced piece has I deem never been cleaned nor polished: it shows some minimal age ie. staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The interesting lapel-pin is quite detailed and pronounced. Simply an attractive - and with certainty not that often seen! - early-period, lapel-pin (ie. 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen') commemorating the celebration of the '1. Mai'- ie. the national labour-day!

It is executed in greyish-silver-coloured metal (ie. 'Buntmetall') and only shows minimal wear and/or age but nevertheless retains most (ie. all-) of it silver-greyish toned finish without showing any defaults. The badge - which measures approximately 2,7 cm. in height - comes naturally mounted on its functional pin-/catch set-up (as can be seen on the pictures). The very attractive and/or pronounced piece has I deem never been cleaned nor polished: it shows some minimal age ie. staining (as can be seen on the pictures).

Zollgrenzschutz') being a clearly worn (and minimally damaged!) example that is executed in the neatly woven, so-called: 'flatwire'- (ie. 'BeVo-weave'-) pattern and that comes in a clearly used- and/or cap-removed, condition. The eagle has truly great pronounced detail but shows some minimal age, wear- and/or staining (some stiching-remains are also present and visible). The cap-eagle originates from a private household where it was recently uncovered. Simply a nice and attractive 'Zoll'-related cap-trapezoid that is actually not that often encountered!
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.

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!

The badge is a tiny bit stained, simply caused by decades of storage only (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - piece of DRK- (ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz'-) related sports-insignia which is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - Dutch NSB-party-related- and bright-golden-toned so-called: \'Wolfshook\'-lapel-pin, as was issued to show support for the WA (\'Weerafdelingen\') This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - Dutch NSB-party-related- and bright-golden-toned so-called: 'Wolfshook'-lapel-pin, as was issued to show support for the WA ('Weerafdelingen') and that comes in a wonderful- (ie. hardly or even not-worn-), 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 lapel-pin on offer here has a nicely preserved age-patina: it was never cleaned nor polished and was stored as such for decades. The piece - which has an approximate height of only 2 cms. (without pin) - comes mounted onto its functional (long-sized) pin and is totally void of any maker-designation. I deem that this example is accordingly priced: I have seen similar lapel-pins being sold for much more than my asking-price. Simply a nice occasion to acquire an NSB- (ie. WA- or: 'Weerafdelingen'-related-) supporter-lapel-pin for a competitive price!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - Dutch NSB-party-related- and silver-toned so-called: \'tinnie\' (or: \'Veranstaltungsabzeichen\') as was issued to commemorate a WA- (\'Weerafdelingen\'-) spring-march (\'Voorjaarsmarsch Heerban 5\') The neat badge (ie. 'tinnie' or: 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen') is executed in blackened- (ie. silvered-) and/or zinc-based metal: it shows some minimall wear and/or age. The badge comes natuarlly mounted on its functional- (and non-altered-) 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 originally applied finish. 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 lapel-pin on offer here comes with a nicely preserved age-patina: it was most certainly never cleaned nor polished and was stored as such for decades. The shield-shaped piece - which has an approximate height of 4 cms. - comes mounted on its functional pin and is totally void of any maker-designation or alike. This particular WA-tinnie (showing amongst others the so-called: 'Wolfshook'-symbol) was issued to commemorate a special WA-march that was held in the Rotterdam-area on 11 April, 1943. Simply a nice occasion to acquire a neat NSB- (ie. WA- or: 'Weerafdelingen'-related-) tinnie for a competitive price!

'Nationaal Socialistische Beweging' or: Dutch Nazi party) related badge (ie. 'tinnie' or: 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen') is executed in silvered-, tin-based metal: it shows some minimal wear and/or age.

The 'tinnie' retains most of its originally applied finish. The shield-shaped piece - which has an approximate height of 4 cms. - comes mounted on its functional pin and is totally void of any maker-designation or alike. This particular NSB-'tinnie' (showing an illustration of the Royal Palace in Amsterdam) was issued to commemorate the first-held, national gathering (which in Dutch language was called: 'Landdag') and which was held in Amsterdam on 28 April 1934. This early example is one of the harder-to-find examples of the series. Simply a nice occasion to acquire an early-period-, NSB-related 'tinnie' for a competitive price!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - Dutch NSB-party-related-, so-called: \'Mussert\'-cross (ie.: \'Oostlandkruis\') as was issued to commemorate the NSB-members ie. Dutch SS-volunteers that showed bravery on the Eastern front This is an attractive example of the - actually scarcely encountered! - multi-coloured- and/or: neatly enamelled, Dutch NSB-party so-called: 'Mussert'-cross (also known in Dutch language as: 'Mussertkruis' or: 'Oostlandkruis') as was issued to commemorate the NSB-members ie. SS-volunteers that showed bravery on the Eastern front and that comes in an overall nice (ie. IMO virtually mint- ie. unissued-), condition. These scarcely encountered - NSB (ie. 'Nationaal Socialistische Beweging' or: Dutch Nazi party) - awards ie. decorations were instituted (and produced on behalf of-) by its leader Anton Mussert in the spring of 1942: the German authorithies, however, never granted their prior permission and immediately prohibited the dissemination of the cross. (I do know that some of these where issued nevertheless). The cross - which shows a golden couloured: 'Wolfshook'-symbol superimposed on a swastika - is neatly enamelled in white-, black- and/or wine-red-colour and comes mounted on its original ribbon (that still retains its copper-toned clip for easy tunic-attachment). The reverse center piece shows the text: 'Mussert 1941' with below the text: 'Hou en Trou' (= steady and true). The cross on offer here has a nicely preserved age-patina: it was most certainly never cleaned nor polished and was stored as such for decades. I deem that this example is accordingly priced: I have seen similar awards being sold for much more than my asking-price. It should be mentioned that not that many awards have survived to date. Simply a neat - and complete! - example of this NSB- (ie. Dutch Waffen-SS-related-) volunteer-decoration!

The piece came stored in its (also wine-red- and 2-pieced) etui (which shows some repairs but that is nevertheless complete) and scarcely seen 'Band-/Feldspange' having its golden-toned 'swords-device' firmly in place. I deem that this example is accordingly priced: I have seen similar awards being sold for much more than my asking-price. It should be mentioned that not that many awards have survived to date. Simply a neat - and complete! - example of this NSB- (ie. Dutch Waffen-SS-related-) volunteer-decoration!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - early- (ie. mid-) war-period-, WH (Heeres) \'Narvik\' campaign-shield, being a detailed example as was executed in silver-toned, so-called: \'Feinzink\' This is a truly attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - early- (ie. mid-) war-period-, WH (Heeres) 'Narvik' campaign-shield, being a detailed example as was executed in greyish-silver-toned, so-called: 'Feinzink' that regrettably misses some parts of its field-grey-coloured wool, but that, nevertheless, comes still in an overall very nice- (and/or clearly used- ie. worn and/or tunic-removed-), condition. The (non-magnetic) shield comes complete with its original (presumably zinc-based-) 'back-plate' and retains all its four mounted prongs (of which all four of them are present and functional but which are obscured by a piece of field-grey-coloured wool). The shield shows some normal aging and/or: tarnish caused by years of storage but has nevertheless retained extraordinary detail and has a still nicely preserved greyish-silver-toned finish that just shows some obvious wear and/or age (as can be seen on the pictures). The shield was with certainty never cleaned nor polished and comes as recently found at a private German household. Simply a very attractive and naturally 100% garuanteed original example that is IMO accordingly priced!

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!

Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - early-war-period-, WH (Heeres ie.

Luftwaffe) 'Narvik' campaign-shield, being a detailed example as was executed in silver-toned, so-called: 'Buntmetall' that regrettably misses its back-plate, all four prongs and/or piece of wool but that comes with its accompanying death-card as found and/or stored for decades. The shield comes thus in a relic-condition but comes, nevertheless, still in an overall nice- and/or clearly used- ie. worn and/or tunic-removed, condition. The (non-magnetic) shield shows some normal aging and/or tarnish caused by years of storage but has nevertheless retained extraordinary detail and has a still nicely preserved silver-toned finish that just shows some obvious wear and/or age (as can be seen on the pictures). The shield was with certainty never cleaned nor polished and comes as recently found. It apparently belonged to the Luftwaffe: 'Feldwebel' Hans Freundl who lost his life on 17th November 1940 during an unsuccesful start of his plane: the fact that amongst other awards was awarded with the 'Narvik' campaign-shield is mentioned on the accompanying death-card (as can be seen on the pictures). I deem that this attractive - and naturally 100% garuanteed original! - example is accordingly priced!

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!

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\') 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 cuff-title (ie. \'Ärmelstreifen\') entitled: \'Technische Nothilfe\' (= \'TeNo\'), being an example as was woven in the neat \'BeVo\'-weave pattern This is a very attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - example of a cuff-title (ie. 'Ärmelstreifen') entitled: 'Technische Nothilfe' (= 'TeNo'), being an example as woven in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern and that comes in an overall very nice (ie. IMO minimally used- ie. tunic-removed-), condition. The cuff-title is executed in greyish-blue-coloured linnen as interwoven on a black-coloured (and also linnen-based) background. The piece comes IMO in a full-length condition and measures approximately 43 cms. in length (and having a width of 4 cms.). As usually encountered are both ends 'unfinished' and do show some minor fraying as to be expected. The armband does show some minimal staining simply caused by minimal wear and/or decades of storage. Simply and attractive - and naturally genuine! - 'TeNo'-cuff-title that is will be very 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-) 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!

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, enlisted- (ie. NCO-) pattern so-called: \'RADwJ\'-sleeve-badge (ie. \'Abzeichen des Reichsarbeitsdienst der weiblichen Jugend\') as was executed in the neat \'BeVo\'-weave-pattern This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - female-related, enlisted- (ie. NCO-) pattern, so-called: 'RADwJ'-sleeve-badge (ie. 'Abzeichen des Reichsarbeitsdienst der weiblichen Jugend') as was executed in neat so-called: 'BeVo'-weave-pattern and that comes in an overall nice- (I deem issued- albeit never worn-), condition. The badge is neatly white- ie. black-coloured having a typical brownish-green-coloured background and was intended for a female RADwJ-staff-member. Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that this example shows the (Roman-styled-) numerals: 'XVII' (signifying that it was an example that was worn by a member of the 17th 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). 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! - enlisted- (ie. NCO-) pattern RADwJ arm-badge!

'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 neatly silver- ie. black-coloured having a typical brownish-coloured background and was as such intended for a female RADwJ-staff-member (ie. officer). Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that this example shows the (Roman-styled-) numerals: 'XXVI' (signifying that it was an example that was worn by a member of the 26th region ie. department ie.

'Abzeichen des Reichsarbeitsdienst der weiblichen Jugend'), as was executed in neat so-called: 'BeVo'-weave-pattern, and that comes in an overall nice (albeit clearly used- and/or IMO carefully tunic-removed- ie. once worn-), condition. The badge is neatly white- ie. black-coloured, 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 once carefully pre-folded (as can be seen on the pictures). Of additional interest is the fact that this example shows the (Roman-styled-) numerals: 'III' (signifying that it was an example that was worn by a member of the 3rd 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).

Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - green-coloured HJ/BDM/DJ (ie. \'Hitlerjugend\' etc.) so-called: \'leaders-lanyard\' (ie. \'Führerschnur\') as was specifically intended for usage by a: \'Scharführer\' These neat coloured lanyards were employed as an indication of both grade- and/or function and saw usage within the HJ ('Hitlerjugend'), the BDM ('Bund Deutscher Mädel') and/or the DJ ('Deutsches Jungvolk'). The neat (typical) green-coloured (ie. 'grün-geflochtenes'-) coloured and/or twisted example on offer here was as such intended to signify the youth rank- ie. function of: 'Scharführer' (within the HJ etc.). The neat lanyard - which measures approximately 33 cms. from top to end - shows minimal wear ie. usage: it was I deem hardly worn ie. used and was kept as such for decades. Simply an attractive, youth-related 'leaders-lanyard' (ie. 'Führerschnur') that will be hard to be upgraded!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - greenish-coloured, \'standard-pattern\'- (and IMO early-war-period-), tropical-issue, WH (Heeres o.

Luftwaffe), so-called: K98 bayonet-frog (or: 'Tragetasche o. Koppelshuh') that comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly used- ie. worn-), condition. The frog - which is made-out of 'fine-grained', woven linnen as to be expected - shows complete and/or undamaged (white-coloured-) stitching but is void of any makers'-mark- ie. ink-stamp: this might, however, have been worn-out during usage ie. wear (see pictures). The frog shows some minimal staining ie. dust (and a smalle hole on its top) simply caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage (see pictures). The piece is naturally fully souple and/or functional. Simply a desirable early-pattern-, tropical (ie. 'DAK' or 'Deutsches Afrika Korps'-) related equipment-item that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - HJ (ie.\'Hitlerjugend\') related \'tinnie\' ie. \'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'!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - HJ (ie.\'Hitlerjugend\') related \'tinnie\' ie. \'Veranstaltungsabzeichen\', showing the text: \'H.J.

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 retains all its silver-coloured finish and/or blue- and red-coloured paint (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece shows an illustration of a Viking-ship with below that the text: 'H.J. Aufmarsch - Hamburg - Einweihung der Jug.Herberge Hein Godenwind - 8. April 1934': next to this it also shows the HJ-symbol ie. 'Raute' as mounted on the sail of the Viking-ship.

'Hitlerjugend'-) related 'tinnie', that was issued to commemorate a specific youth-rally ie. gathering named the: 'Aufmarsch der H.J. - Gebiet 13 - Hessen-Nassau' and/or sub-titled: 'Tag der Hunderttausend', as was held from 1 to 2 September, 1934, in overall very nice (albeit issued ie. moderately worn-) condition. 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'!

'Führer- schnur') 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 red- - (ie. 'roter'-) coloured and/or twisted example on offer here comes was as such intended to signify the youth rank/function of: 'Bannführer' (within the HJ etc.). The neat lanyard - which measures approximately 23,5 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 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!

Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - N.S.D.A.P.-related, membership-booklet (ie. \'Personal-Ausweis\') as was issued (in 1942!) to the: \'N.S.D.A.P.-Mitglied\' Adolf Kiehn, born in 1884 This is a truly attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - typical bright-red-coloured-, N.S.D.A.P.-related, membership-booklet (ie. 'Personal-Ausweis') as was issued (in 1942!) to the: 'N.S.D.A.P.-Mitglied' Adolf Kiehn, born in 1884 and 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: 13,3 x 10,5 cms.) is a secondary example (ie. 'Zweitschrift') that was issued in 1942 (whereas Kiehn entered the party as early as 1928 and was given the low party-number: '121741') and that comes in an overall very nice and/or: fully complete condition having all its 48 pages present and in-place: it has not been 'damaged' whatsoever and comes in an overall nice (albeit with certainty issued-), condition. The ID-booklet shows a neat uniform-photo of Kiehn and shows all the regular entries, glued-in stamps and/or: ink-stamps as to be expected (as can also be seen on the pictures). Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that Kiehn had been taken the oath in front of the 'Führer' Adolf Hitler (ie. 'auf den Führer vereidigt') as early as 25 February 1934 (something that can be easily deducted from the (scarcely seen!) full-paged entry on page 11 (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very attractive - and most certainly with this rare entry-page not that easily encountered! - N.S.D.A.P.-related, 'Personal-Ausweis' that belonged to an early 'N.S.D.A.P.-Mitglied'!

Stufe' (or: fire-brigade honorary medal of the second class) that comes mounted onto its piece of ribbon (ie.

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 (as can be seen on the pictures). The neat medal came mounted onto its (confectioned) piece of ribbon that shows a period-attached safety-pin (as was intended for wearing it on a tunic as can be seen on the pictures). The piece just shows some truly minimal tarnish (and a somewhat stained ribbon) simply caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage but was most certainly never cleaned. Simply a not that often-encountered TR-period, honorary-award that is accordingly priced!

Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - officers\'-pattern, so-called: RAD (ie. \'Reichsarbeitsdienst\') sleeve-badge (or: \'Dienststellenabzeichen\') bearing the specialist-signification: \'M\' (\'Hauptmeldebeambter\') This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - officers'-version of a so-called: RAD (ie. 'Reichsarbeitsdienst') sleeve-badge (or: 'Dienststellen-Abzeichen') bearing the specialist-signification: 'M' (as was intended for a senior RAD-official with the not that often seen function of: 'Hauptmeldebeamter' or: senior communications-official) and that comes in an overall very nice (ie. virtually mint and/or never used- nor tunic-attached-), condition. These badges were worn on the upper left sleeve of the mustard-coloured (officers'-type-) RAD-tunics and/or garments. The badge - which shows the red-coloured 'M'-character) - is neatly executed in so-called 'flat-wire'-like 'BeVo'-weave technique. The piece was never folded nor trimmed as to be expected (but does show some minimal fraying on both top and bottom). The badge is neatly maker-marked and displays the interwoven so-called: 'Ges.Gesch.'-make as is more often found on RAD cloth badges- and/or insignia. This badge originates from a smaller collection of rarely seen RAD cloth-insignia I recently acquired for the web-site. It should be noted that all RAD officers'-type badges are comparatively scarcely encountered: those intended for specialised functions even more so!
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-) conditio 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 EM- (ie. NCO-) 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'- (ie. NCO-) type shoulderstraps as was piped in the bright-green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured branchcolour as was specifically intended for usage by a member who served within the notorious 'Sicherheitsdienst'- (ie. 'SD'-) related so-called: 'Schützmannschaften' (ie. 'Schuma') and that comes in an overall very nice- (and I deem 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- and woolen-based 'upperdecks' and do show the interwoven, diamond-shaped swastika-signs (as executed in silverish-grey linnen as can be seen on the pictures). The neat pair comes mounted onto its functional tongues and does show the desirable, 'silk-like'-type piping attached (as always). The pair shows the black-coloured- (ie. 'Waffen-SS'-related!) 'upperdecks' and as such signified the close interrelation between the - notorious! - 'Schuma'-units and the German police (ie. 'Polizei') ie. Waffen-SS and/or SD-units. The pair is in my opinion 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 very 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! - pre-war-period-, WH (Heeres) \'Panzer\'-type breast-eagle (of the first pattern) as was executed in white-coloured linnen on a black coloured background This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - pre-war-period-, WH (Heeres) 'Panzer'-type breast-eagle (of the first pattern) as was executed in white-coloured linnen on a black coloured background as was specifically intended for usage on the black-coloured 'wrap-around' tunics and that comes in an overall very nice (ie. virtually mint-/unissued-), condition. The piece has naturally never been trimmed- nor pre-folded and shows some slight staining, simply caused by decades of storage only. The eagle comes as 'straightly cut-of the role' and can naturally easily serve to restore any first- (ie. early-pattern-) black-woolen Panzer 'wrap-around' tunic. Simply a neat and early-period, replacement-eagle which is nowadays hard to encounter if needed!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - RAD- (ie. \'Reichsarbeitsdienst\'-) related so-called: \'Traditions-Mützenabzeichen\' as was intended for a member who served within the: \'Arbeitsgau XXX\' This is a neat - and actually scarcely encountered! - nicely enamelled RAD- (ie. 'Reichsarbeitsdienst'-) related so-called: 'Traditions-Mützenabzeichen' as was intended for a member who served within the: 'Arbeitsgau XXX' (= Bayern-Hochland - Ostmark) and that comes in an overall very nicely preserved- and fully undamaged, condition. This pin was worn by a RAD-staff-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 onto its functional pin-/pin-catch set-up. The piece is totally void of a makers'-designation nor 'Ges.Gesch.'-patent-pending-marking (as can be seen on the pictures). A similar badge is also figured in the Heering-Hüsken lapel-pin-catalogue, wherein it is given a unique reference-number (3805JL) and an estimated value of: 180 Eu. The badge on offer here was I deem 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' that is priced according to its comparative rarity and/or desirability!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - single, WH (Heeres) \'cyphered\'-, officers\'-type shoulderboard, as was intended for an: \'Oberleutnant eines Kav.- o. Aufklärungs-Schützen-Abteilungs o. Regiments\' This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered albeit regrettably single - WH (Heeres) 'cyphered'-, officers'-type shoulderboard, as was piped in the neat golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by an: 'Oberleutnant eines Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs-Schützen-Abteilungs o. Regiments' (or: lieutnant first-class and/or gunner who served within an army cavalry- ie. reconnaisance regiment ie. unit) and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. The shoulderboard is a 'text-book'-example of the 'Heeres'-type-, 'Kavallerie'-shoulderboard and has the greyish-silver- (ie. somewhat sub-dued-) 'upperdeck'. The board shows the desirable golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour (and was constructed from the smooth-type wool as to be expected). The board came mounted on its functional (smaller-sized-) tongue attached and measures approximately 10,6 cms. in length. The board was IMO issued- but hardly worn: it shows minimal age, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The board shows a neatly golden-toned- (regular-sized- and Gothic-styled-) so-called: 'S'-cypher- and regular-sized pip attached, denoting that the officer who wore this example was a gunner ie. an officer who served within a: 'Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs-Schützen-Abteilungs o. Regiments'. Both devices are just minimally stained- ie. tarnished but have preserved a fine and fairly bright- (and/or quite shiny) age-patina. 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 'Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs'-shoulderboards are actually quite hard to come by and can easily be graded 'scarce': simply a very attractive officers'-type shoulderboard that belonged to an: 'Oberleutnant eines Kavallerie- o. Aufklärungs-Schützen-Abteilungs o. Regiments'!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - so-called: officers\'-pattern \'Allgemeine-SS\'-shoulderboard as was intended for - and clearly used by! - an SS-officer holding the rank of: \'SS-Untersturmführer bis SS-Hauptsturmführer\' This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - so-called: officers'-pattern, 'Allgemeine-SS'-shoulderboard as was intended for - and clearly used by! - an SS-officer holding the rank of: 'SS-Untersturmführer bis SS-Hauptsturmführer' (ie. officer holding a rank between lieutnant and/or: captain) and that comes in a moderately used- and/or carefully tunic-removed-, condition. These shoulderboards were specifically intended for usage on the black-coloured service-tunics (and/or great-coats) and saw usage from 1933 upto 1945. The piece comes without tongue (as more often) and is of the 'sew-in'-type: it is executed in the black-coloured wool having an 'upperdeck' that is constructed from the typical silver-coloured- and twisted braid. The board - which measures approximately 12 cms. in length - has clearly been used and was carefully tunic-removed (it still shows some minimal stitching- ie. thread-remains (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a neat - and fairly scarcely encountered! - 'Allgemeine-SS', officers'-pattern shoulderboard: hard to find a more attractive example for a better price!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - so-called: water-police (ie. \'Wasserschutzpolizei\') so-called: \'M43\'-pattern, combined cap-eagle and cocarde piece, as executed in \'BeVo\'-weave technique This is an attractive example of the specific water-police (ie. 'Wasserschutzpolizei') so-called: 'M43'-pattern, combined cap-eagle and cocarde piece, as executed in 'BeVo'-weave technique and that comes in an overall nice (ie. just folded and/or virtually mint-, unissued and/or IMO never cap-attached-), condition. This specimen has a typical 'Polizei'-type, blue-greyish-colour and was executed onto a darker-blue-coloured background (as can be seen on the picture). Simply an attractive 'Polizei'-related item that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - so-called: \'Feuerwehr-Ehrenzeichen der II. Stufe\', that comes with its original, full-length piece of ribbon (ie. \'Bandabschnitt\') and that comes stored in its original etui as issued 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 with its original, full-length piece of ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') and that comes stored in its original etui as issued and stored for decades. The medal shows IMO some moderate wear and/or: staining (it was once mounted onto the ribbon but was IMO never cleaned nor polished). It came with 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. The medal came stored in its original (minimally damaged) etui that comes in an equally used condition: it shows some wear- and/or usage-marks esp. visible on the out-side (as can be seen on the pictures). It is, however, still fully functional and has a fully preserved, black-coloured (ie. velvet-like-) interior-section (see pictures). Simply a not that often-encountered TR-period, honorary-award-set that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - so-called: \'Grosses Brustabzeichen für Zivilangestellte der Luftwaffe\' as was executed in the neat \'BeVo\'-weave-pattern This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - so-called: 'Grosses Brustabzeichen für Zivilangestellte der Luftwaffe' (or: larger-sized breast-badge for civil-staff that operated under the supervision of the air-force) as was executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave-pattern and that comes in an overall nice- (ie. never worn- ie. 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'-), condition. The badge is neatly silver-white-coloured having a typical darker-blue-coloured background and was intended for usage by a civil LW-staff-member. The neat patch measures approximately 10,3 x 5,8 cms. and was simply never used nor mounted and comes as 'straightly cut-of the role'. Simply an attractive - and truly scarcely encountered! - LW-related badge that is accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - so-called: \'HJ\' (\'Hitlerjugend\') district-triangle (ie. \'Gebietsdreieck\') entitled: \'Nord Niedersachsen\' This is a 'male'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in yellowish-golden-coloured linnen on a black-coloured- (and also linnen-based-) background. This example still retains the remains of its paper-based so-called: 'RzM-etiket' and was (IMO) a piece that was clearly worn ie. once tunic-attached: the stitching-remains are still clearly present. It does, however, shows some minimal age and/or staining, simply caused by decades of storage and moderate wear - see pictures. This is one of the more scarcely encountered examples of the extensive 'Gebietsdreiecken'-series. In any case an attractive, male-type 'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') district-triangle that is IMO priced according to its comparative scarcity and/or desirability!

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!

The multi-coloured- and/or shield-shaped badge (showing blue-, red- and yellow-coloured areas) measures approximately 2 cms. in height and depicts the five, upward-positioned arrows which are mounted under an iron cross symbol with swastika: moreover, does it show the wording: 'España' (as can be seen on the pictures). It is totally void of a makers-signification and comes mounted on its (functional- and/or unaltered-) button-hole catch construction. It is totally void of any (enamel-) 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 insignia: only the second such attractive and rarely seen 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!

The fairly large-sized badge (having an approximate diameter of 9.5 cms.) is executed in the neat so-called 'BeVo'-weave technique and is a fully 'text-book' example of this badge. The badge is a tiny bit stained ie. dirty, simply caused by normal wear and/or age (moreover does it still shows the clear signs of having once been shirt-attached). Simply an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - piece of SS sports'-related insignia which is IMO accordingly priced!

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.

Panzer) 'standard-issue' side-cap-cocarde (ie. 'Kokarde für Schiffchen') being an example as executed in so-called: 'BeVo'-weave pattern that comes in a virtually mint- (ie. IMO never cap-attached-), condition. It should be noted that these side-cap- (ie. 'Schiffchen'-) insignia-pieces are quite difficult to encounter (and come hardly ever for sale). The piece - which is executed in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave pattern is executed in black on a field-grey-coloured- and/or linnen-based background - was nicely pre-folded- ie. confectioned. The piece shows minimal age and/or staining but can, nevertheless, excellently be used to complete any black-coloured side-cap (ie. 'Panzer-Schiffchen' or even: 'Einheitsfeldmütze'). Simply an attractive 'Heeres Panzer'-related side-cap insignia-piece that is actually hard to encounter and that is IMO accordingly priced!

Waffen-SS) so-called: 'Kuban'-campaign-shield that comes mounted on its original field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based backing and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie.

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 centre of the shield as more often encountered with original 'Kuban'-campaign-shields - as can be seen on the pictures). The piece still retains its period-applied-, beige-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 all of its somewhat glossy appearance and 'off-factory'-applied 'Brennlack' (showing some darkened tarnish) and has with certainty never been cleaned: it does show some minimal storage-age only as is visible on the pictures). It should, however, be noted that these (original) 'Kuban'-campaign-shields are a bit underestimated in value and rarity. Genuine - and nicely preserved! - examples of the 'Kuban'-shield are actually not that easily encountered. I deem that this very attractive example is accordingly priced!

Waffen-SS) so-called: 'Kuban'-campaign-shield that comes mounted onto its original field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based backing and that comes in an overall very nice (ie. presumably issued but 'virtually mint'- and/or 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 more often encountered with original 'Kuban'-campaign-shields - see pictures). The piece still retains its period-applied-, greyish-black-coloured- and/or 'crepe'-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 never been cleaned: it does show some minimal staining as is visible on the pictures). It should however be noted that Ithe (original) 'Kuban'-campaign-shields are a bit underestimated in value and rarity.

'Kokarde für Panzer-Schiffchen') being all four examples as executed in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave pattern an that come all four in a very nice- (ie. 'virtually mint'- and/or never cap-attached-), condition. It should be noted that these side-cap- (ie. 'Schiffchen'-) insignia-pieces are quite difficult to encounter (and come hardly ever for sale). The pieces - which are executed in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave pattern are executed in black-coloured linnen on a field-grey-coloured- and/or also linnen-based background (as can be seen on the pictures). The pieces - which come as straightly cut-off the role – show some minimal (storage) age and/or staining but can, nevertheless, excellently be used to complete any black-coloured side-cap (ie. 'Panzer-Schiffchen' or even: 'Einheitsfeldmütze'). My asking-price is naturally intended per single piece. Simply an attractive 'Heeres Panzer'-related side-cap insignia-piece that is actually hard to encounter and that is IMO accordingly priced!

The piece - which is executed in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave pattern and that is executed in black-coloured linnen on a black-coloured- and/or also linnen-based background (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece - which comes as 'straightly cut-off the role' - show some minimal (storage) age and/or staining and is a tiny bit wrinkled but can, nevertheless, excellently be used to complete any black-coloured side-cap (ie.

The very attractive armbadge - which shows extraordinary embroidery! - was most certainly once tunic-attached: it shows its period stitching-holes on the back. The piece is executed on a piece of darker-green-coloured- and/or woolen-based wool and shows a neatly hand-embroidered 'Edelweiss'-flower, beautifully stitched in silver- ie. golden-yellow-toned braid (ie. bullion). The piece is 'backed' with a piece of black-coloured paper (which is more often the case). The badge shows some minimal age, wear and/or staining (see pictures) but is nevertheless still a very nice and most certainly very desirable example. Simply a very nice example of such an officers'-type 'Edelweiss' arm-badge that is IMO priced according to its comparative rarity and/or desirability!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Heeres) officers\'-type, hand-embroidered cap-eagle as was executed in silver-toned braid, as was specifically intended for usage on the visor-caps (ie. \'Schirmmützen\') This is a very attractive - and/or neatly detailed and actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Heeres) officers'- (ie. eventually also NCO-) type, hand-embroidered cap-eagle as was executed in multi-toned- ie. silver-toned braid, as was specifically intended for usage on the various field-grey-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-) silver-toned so-called: braid on a darker-green-coloured (and/or: woolen-based-) background (see pictures). This example was as stated above once cap-attached and shows some fraying on one side but is void of any staining ie. corroded areas - see pictures. The eagle shows a bluish-coloured- and linnen-based 'backing' as is more often observed (see pictures). Simply an attractive example of the 'Extra Klasse'-quality that can naturally easily be attached to any 'Heeres'-visor-cap or to be simply kept in any eagles'-collection!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Heeres) officers\'-type-, overseas cap-eagle of the so-called: \'M36\'-pattern, as was intended for usage on the: \'Knautschmützen\' ie. \'Alter-art\'-visor-caps This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Heeres) officers'-type overseas cap-eagle of the so-called: 'M36'-pattern, as was intended for usage on the: 'Knautschmützen' (ie. 'Alter-art' visor-caps or: 'Schirmmützen'), that comes in a very nice ie mint-/unissued- and/or unconfectioned-, condition. These eagles were intended for usage on the 'Knautschmützen' ie. '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!

'Feinzink') and that comes in an issued- (albeit never worn- nor tunic-attached-), condition. The (naturally non-magnetic) shield comes complete with its original (zinc-based) 'back-plate' and retains three of its four mounted prongs (which are present and functional). The piece has lost its (paper-based) 'protective-backing' (as can be seen on the pictures). The shield shows some normal aging and/or tarnish caused by years of storage but nevertheless retains extraordinary detail. Most of its silver-toned finish has been nicely preserved as is not always the case (as can be seen on the pictures). The shield was with certainty never cleaned nor polished and comes as recently found at a private German household. Simply a very attractive and naturally 100% garuanteed original 'Heeres' 'Narvik'-campaign-shield that is I deem accordingly priced!

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 (ie. 'Adler für Schirmmütze') as was executed in golden-toned braid, as was specifically intended for usage on the various darker-blue-coloured visor-caps (ie. 'Schirmmützen') and 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 (fairly bright albeit minimally tarnished-) 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 and shows some usage but is void of any staining ie. corroded areas - see pictures. The eagle shows a beige-coloured- and/or linnen- (ie. partly present beige-paper-) based 'backing' as is more often observed (see pictures). Simply an 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 (Kriegsmarine) \'single-pattern\'-eagle-pin, being a maker- (ie. \'R.S.& S.\'-) marked example as was intended for attachment to the (darker-blue- ie. white-topped-) so-called: \'Tellermützen\' This is an attractive - and actually fairly scarcely encountered! - example of a bright-golden-toned WH (Kriegsmarine) so-called: 'single-pattern'-eagle-pin, being a maker- (ie. 'R.S.& S.'-) marked- and/or: 1940-dated example, as was intended for attachment to the (darker-blue- ie. white-topped-) so-called: Kriegsmarine 'Tellermützen' and that comes in an overall very nice (IMO hardly used- ie. possibly once cap-attached-), condition. The piece on offer here is the so-called: 'one-pieced'-model, showing a bright-golden-toned-, aluminium-based eagle-device without attached cocarde. The piece was IMO hardly used nor worn and retains all of its bright golden-toned- (ie. 'frosted') finish: it is a piece that is neatly: 'feuervergoldet'. The eagle-pin has IMO never been cleaned and comes as recently found. The piece is somewhat converse as more often encountered and comes of course mounted on its original, full-sized, pin. Simply a nice - and/or fairly scarcely encountered! - naval replacement-piece that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine) \'standard-issue\' side-cap-cocarde (ie. \'Kokarde für Schiffchen\') being an example as executed in so-called: \'BeVo\'-weave pattern This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Kriegsmarine) 'standard-issue' side-cap-cocarde (ie. 'Kokarde für Schiffchen') being an example as executed in so-called: 'BeVo'-weave pattern that comes in a virtually mint- (ie. never cap-attached-), condition. It should be noted that these side-cap- (ie. 'Schiffchen'-) insignia-pieces are quite difficult to encounter (and come hardly ever for sale). The piece - which is executed in the so-called: 'BeVo'-weave pattern is executed on a darker-blue-coloured- and/or linnen-based background - was simply never confectioned (it came 'as straightly cut-of the role'). The piece shows minimal age and/or staining but can, nevertheless, excellently be used to complete any darker-blue-coloured naval side-cap (ie. 'Schiffchen' or even: 'Einheitsfeldmütze'). Simply an attractive Kriegsmarine-related side-cap insignia-piece that is actually hard to encounter and that is IMO accordingly priced!

DAK-related- and trapezoid-shaped-) side-cap- (ie. 'Schiffchen') eagle and matching cocarde (ie.

'Schiffchen'-) insignia-sets are quite difficult to encounter (and come hardly ever for sale). Both pieces - which are neatly machine-embroidered on a slightly thicker-shaped and tan-coloured- and/or linnen-based background - show some obvious - albeit minimal - staining caused by decades of storage and/or minimal wear (as can be seen on the pictures). The set can naturally excellently be re-used to complete any beige-coloured-, tropical-issue side-cap (ie. 'Luftwaffe Tropenschiffchen'). Simply a very attractive Luftwaffe-related tropical-issued side-cap insignia-set which is actually very hard to encounter and that is IMO accordingly priced!

Both pieces - which are neatly machine-embroidered on a slightly thicker-shaped and tan-coloured- and/or linnen-based background - show some obvious - albeit minimal - staining caused by fair wear and or usage (both insignia still show some stitching-remains as can be seen on the pictures). The set was most certainly issued and/or once cap-attached: it can, however, excellently be used to complete any beige-coloured-, tropical-issue side-cap (ie. 'Luftwaffe Tropenschiffchen').

It should be noted that these tropical-style side-cap- (ie. 'Schiffchen'-) insignia-pieces are quite difficult to encounter (and come hardly ever for sale). All four pieces - which are neatly machine-embroidered on a slightly thicker-shaped and tan-coloured- and/or linnen-based background - have a carton-based ïnner-section and show some minimal storage-age only and can excellently be used to complete any beige-coloured-, tropical-issue side-cap (ie.

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 equipment-item being a so-called: \'Deckungswinkelmesser\' that is bearing a makers\'-mark (ie. 3-digit \'code\' that reads: \'DHQ\') and a unique serial-number: \'138169\' This is an unsual - and actually not that often encountered! - WH equipment item: a so-called: 'Deckungswinkelmesser' that is bearing a clearly engraved makers'-mark (ie. 3-digit production-'code' that reads: 'DHQ') and a unique serial-number: '138169' and that comes in an overall very nice (IMO virtually mint- ie. unissued-), condition. The high-quality produced piece - which comes as stated above in a very nice condition - was to be found in most 'standard-issue'-pattern WH map-cases (ie. 'Kartentaschen'). The piece - which is quite heavy weight - retains all its original-applied, darker-coloured- ie. blackened finish (something that is unusually seen). The piece is made out of high-quality copper-toned metal and is IMO still fully functional. Both its white- ie. silver-coloured 'Mica'- (ie. aluminium-) based text-plates are still present and in place (which is not always the case) and are both in a wonderful condition (the white 'Bakelite' plate shows regular wear and shows some minimal 'cracks' as is most times the case). Simply a very attractive example of this scarcely encountered WH-equipment item: with certainty the nicest such tool I ever had on offer!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH \'A-frame\'-bag (or: \'Beutel zum Gefechtsgepäck\'), being IMO an early-war-period specimen of the scarcely encountered \'tropical\'-pattern that is void of any marking ie. date This is an attractive - and actually fairly scarcely encountered! - example of a (tropical-issue!) WH 'A-frame'-bag (or: 'Beutel zum Gefechtsgepäck') being IMO an early-war-period- specimen of the scarcely encountered 'tropical'-pattern that is totally void of any marking ie. date and that comes in an overall nice (ie. clearly used- ie. worn-), condition. The bag comes fully complete with all its linnen-based lashes, linnen-based side-straps, zinc-based buttons and/or complete tan-coloured linnen closing-straps present and in place. It concerns a neat - IMO early-war-period- version that saw usage by the various WH- ie. DAK (or: 'Deutsches Afrikakorps'-) troops. Both zinc-based rings are naturally fully intact (and are not heavingly oxidized or alike): this is also valid for the zinc-based buttons (which are all present and in place). Also, are the (linnen-based-) internal closing-straps present and of course functional. The bag - which is void of any leather components and is thus a typical tropical-issued example - is naturally fully functional and shows no defaults whatsoever: it just shows some usage and/or staining. Simply a neat and scarcely encountered example of a desirable and/or early-war period-, tropical-issue WH 'Beutel zum Gefechtsgepäck': I deem that this attractive example is accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH-related lapel-pin (ie. \'‘Brosche\'‘), as was intended for: \'‘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: ‘'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 ‘so-called: 'Wehrmachtsgefolge'‘ (or 'WG’) were by very nature not regular armed-forces but auxiliaries to them. 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 scarcely encountered! - zinc-based, \'Ostvölker\'- (ie. Eastern-volunteers-) related ID-disc, bearing the stamped unit-designation: \'NSCHB.BTL.522 TURK JANOW\' This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - zinc- (ie. 'Feinzink'-) based, so-called: 'Ostvölker'- (ie. Eastern-volunteers-) related ID-disc, bearing the stamped unit-designation: 'NSCHB.BTL.522 TURK JANOW' (and such being IMO a disc that was used by an Eastern- (ie. 'Turkistanischer') volunteer who was attached to the: 'Nachshub-Bataillon 522' based in the town of Janow, and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly used- and/or worn-), condition. The disc - which is executed in a neatly executed letter-type - is in overall nice condition and shows clear evidence of having been worn (torn-out holes): it was IMO never cleaned nor polished but shows some minimal staining (see pictures). The disc - which also shows the soldiers' bloodgroup-type ('Type A') - comes as stored for years: it originates from a small ID-disc-collection I recently acquired. The addition of the abbreviation: 'TURK' on the disc clearly signifies that it deals with an Eastern-volunteers-related ID-disc that once belonged to a: 'Turkistanischer'-volunteer and/or transport-soldier (possibly a driver). Simply a very nice and honest 'Ostvölker'- ie. Eastern-volunteers-related ID-disc that belonged to a soldier that served within a 'Turkistanischer'-volunteer-unit: I deem that this neat disc most certainly merits further investigation!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - \'Deutsches Fahrer- abzeichen\' (ie. \'in Bronze\'), being a neat maker-marked example by: \'L.Chr. Lauer\' and that comes in an overall very nice (albeit IMO moderately used ie. worn-), condition This is a truly attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - WWII-period-, so-called: 'Deutsches Fahrerabzeichen' (ie. 'in Bronze'), being a neatly maker-marked example that was produced by the: 'L.Chr. Lauer'-company based in the towns of Nürnberg and/or Berlin and that comes in an overall nice (IMO only minimally used ie. worn-), condition. The neat and very detailed award - which comes on its functional pin and/or catch (-set-up) - is a superb bronze-coloured- and/or pronounced specimen as was produced by the: 'L.Chr. Lauer' company based in Nürnberg and/or Berlin (something that is of course clearly shown on the back of the badge). The badge also shows a patent-pending marking (that reads: 'Gesetzlich Geschützt') as can be clearly seen on the pictures. The badge truly retains all of its golden-toned- (ie. minimally darkened-) bronze-toned finish and is IMO only minimally worn (but was certainly never cleaned nor polised). The piece is naturally a WWII-era badge and not a 1957-version (something that is easily noticed by the presence of the capital 'R'-character as is visible on the bottom of the badge). Simply a nice example of this fairly scarcely encountered and/or very decorative award which is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - \'Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse\' (or: Iron Cross 1st class) being a neatly marker- (ie. \'L/53\'-) marked example as was produced by the desirable maker: \'Hymmen & Co.\' and that comes as recently found This is an attractive example of an: 'Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse' (or: Iron Cross 1st class) being a neatly marker- (ie. 'L/53'-) marked example as was produced by the desirable- (and not that often found!) maker: 'Hymmen & Co.' as based in the town of Lüdenscheid and that comes as recently found. The neat cross comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly used ie. slightly worn-), condition (as can be seen on the pictures). The magnetic cross has a nice (somewhat darkened) age-patina and retains truly great detail: the black core shows no rust but does show some minimal paintloss (within the swastika-area as can be seen on the pictures). The piece does, however, show a fair bit of its so-called: 'hochpolierte Kanten'. The (flute-shaped) pin and catch (ie. set-up) are naturally unaltered and/or fully functional. The cross - which is a non-vaulted example - is as stated above a marker- (ie. 'L/53'-) marked example as was produced by the maker: 'Hymmen & Co.' as based in the town of Lüdenscheid (various details corroborate this). Simply an attractive 'Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse' by a desirable maker that was never before in a collection and that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - \'HJ\' (ie.\'Hitlerjugend\') district-triangle (ie. \'Gebietsdreieck\') entitled: \'Süd Franken\' (being IMO an early-period example) This is a 'male'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in golden-yellow-coloured linnen on a black-coloured- (and also linnen-based-) background. This example regrettably misses its paper-based so-called: 'RzM-etiket' (it was with certainty once there but was simply lost over the years). The piece was most certainly worn and/or once tunic-attached: it does show some age, wear and/or minimal staining, simply caused by decades of storage and/or moderate wear - see pictures). Simply an attractive, male-type 'HJ'(ie. 'Hitlerjugend') district-triangle that is actually scarcely encountered and that is IMO accordingly priced!

This example comes without its so-called: 'RzM-etiket' (it just shows some minimal remains) but comes in an overall very nice condition: it was I deem minimally used- ie. worn and does show some age and/or minimal staining, simply caused by decades of storage and/or minimal wear (as can be seen on the pictures). This is one of the more scarcely encountered examples of the extensive 'Gebietsdreiecken'-series. Simply an attractive, female-type district-triangle that is priced according to its comparative rarity and/or desirability!

Simply an attractive, early-pattern and female-type 'BDM' (or: 'Bund Deutscher Mädel') district-triangle that is actually scarcely encountered and that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - \'HJ\' (\'Hitlerjugend\') ie. \'BDM\' (or: \'Bund Deutscher Mädel\') district-triangle (ie. \'Gebietsdreieck\') entitled: \'West Westmark\' (still retaining its period-applied \'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 was IMO never used nor tunic- ie. shirt-attached and still shows its period- and paper-based-, so-called: 'RzM-etiket' attached (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece was never used but does show some obvious (storage) age ie. staining. I deem that I priced this attractive example accordingly!
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!

The flap comes with both its two, original blackened 'studs' in place and can easily be re-mounted to any binocular-pair. As stated above is this example neatly ink-stamped on its back with the date '1940' and 'WaA'- (ie. 'Waffen-Abnahme'-) stamp, something that is not always the case. 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: simply a very nice example of a fairly hard to find WH equipment-piece!

The badge has never been cleaned and shows some normal - albeit minimal darkened - tarnish: however, most of its silverish-finish is nicely preserved (as can be seen on the pictures).

'Nederlandse Arbeidsdienst' (or: NAD) sports-badge being an example that is executed in silver-coloured metal and that comes in a very nice (albeit modetaly used- and/or worn), condition. The breast-badge - which has surely been used and shows a 'frosted' silver finish without any defaults - comes in an overall very nice condition. The badge - sized: 4,5 x 3.5 cms. - shows the NAD motto: 'Ick Dien' (which stands for: 'I serve') and a spade within its centre a capital 'S' (signifying 'sport'). This service was mainly under the influence of the Dutch pro-German Party, the NSB (or: 'Nationaal Socialistische Beweging'). The badge still retains its period-attached (3) 'attachment rings' on its back: a feature that all these (original) NAD-sportbadges show. Simply a very attractive and not that often-encountered Dutch collaborationist item!
Attractive - and actually scarcely found! - WH (Heeres) \'Gebirgsjäger\'-arm-badge being a desirable \'variant-pattern\'- example as was executed in the machine-embroidered style on a thin-shaped- and/or linnen-based background This is an attractive - and actually scarcely found! - WH (Heeres) 'Gebirgsjäger'-arm-badge depicting the famous 'Edelweiss'-flower being a desirable 'variant-pattern'-example as was executed in the machine-embroidered style on a thin-shaped- and/or linnen-based background and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'- and/or never tunic-attached-), condition. The piece - that shows the typical 'Edelweiss'-flower surrounded by a silverish-white border - was simply never worn and is neatly machine-embroidered on a field-grey-coloured (and/or truly thni-shaped- and linnen-based) background. The piece shows some minimal age and/or staining (simply caused by decades of storage only). Simply a nice occasion to acquire a rarely found and/or 'variant-pattern' so-called: 'Gebirgsjäger'-related arm-badge for a justified price!
Attractive - and actually scarcely found! - \'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Silber\' being a clearly maker- (ie. \'127\'-) marked- and/or typical zinc- (ie. \'Feinzink\'-) based example as was produced by the desirable maker: \'Moritz Hausch AG\' The attractive - and actually scarcely found! - silver-class wound-badge (or: 'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Silber') is executed in silver-sprayed zinc (ie.'Feinzink') and shows only moderate usage and/or wear (as can be seen on the pictures). The WB comes naturally mounted onto its (thin-shaped-) pin (which is of course fully functional) and comes mounted onto its functional (and totally unaltered- nor repaired) catch. The badge is most certainly never cleaned and truly retains most of its (sprayed) silver-toned finish and just shows some obvious tarnish and wear (it was most certainly never cleaned nor polished). The piece is - as stated above - a nicely maker- (ie. '127'-) marked example that is unmistakenly produced by the (unusually seen!) maker (ie. 'Hersteller') named: 'Moritz Hausch AG' as was based in the town of Pforzheim. Simply an attractive and with certainty scarcely encountered and desirable, silver-class WB that is accordingly priced!

The decorative cards - which are all sized 14 x 9,5 cms. as usual - come in an unissued condition and originate from an old postcard-collection as was period-compiled: they are all void of any writing but do show some minimal staining and/or age. The set includes the numbers: 1,2,3,7,8,10,11 and 12 of the series (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply an attractive, period photo-postcard grouping that is IMO accordingly priced and would look great if properly framed together!

The piece - which is totally void of any marking or designation - comes in a wonderfull condition overall and only shows some minor aging (and/or minimal rust-staining) as I deem caused by years of storage and/or minimal wear: it is naturally fully functional. Simply a neat and surely rarely seen piece of specific WH-mountaintroop- ie. sniper-equipment: only the second such interesting equipment-item I ever had on offer!
Attractive - and actually scarcely seen! - \'HJ\'/\'BDM\' (\'Hitlerjugend\'/\'Bund Deutscher Mädel\') district-triangle (ie. \'Gebietsdreieck\') entitled: \'Mitte Mittelland\' This is a 'female'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in silverish-white-coloured linnen on a black-coloured- (and also linnen-based-) background. This example misses its paper-based so-called: 'RzM-etiket' (which was with certainty once there but got lost over the years as can be seen on the pictures). The piece was most certainly worn and/or once tunic-attached: it does show some age, wear and/or minimal staining, simply caused by decades of storage and/or moderate wear. It still shows three metal-based snap-on buttons (period-mounted on the corners) as used to easily attach ie. detach the patch when worn. Simply an attractive - and actually scarcely found! - female-type 'HJ'/'BDM' ('Hitlerjugend'/'Bund Deutscher Mädel') district-triangle that is I accordingly priced!

'in Silber') being a neat maker- (ie. 'L.Chr. Lauer'-) marked example that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. The neat and detailed award - which comes on its functional pin- and/or catch (set-up) - truly retains most of its greyish-silver-coloured finish and is a typical, pronounced specimen as was produced by the: 'L.Chr. Lauer' company based in Nürnberg and/or Berlin (something that is of course clearly shown on the back of the badge). The badge also shows a patent-pending marking (that reads: 'Gesetzlich Geschützt' as can be seen of the pictures). The badge retains most of its greyish-silver-coloured finish and is only moderately worn (but was with certainly never cleaned nor polished). The piece is naturally a WWII-era badge and not a 1957-version (something that is easily noticed by the presence of the capital 'R'-character as visible on the bottom of the badge). Simply a neat - and actually seldomly seen! - 'Deutsches Reiterabzeichen der 2. Klasse (ie. 'in Silber')!

'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. 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' - 'M4/72' (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!

The piece has a typical, silver-zinc-coloured- and somewhat 'dull' appearance and has never been cleaned nor polished (it has just acquired some minimal tarnish ie. dirt over the years and shows some minimal scratching caused by handling over the years).

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 unusually seen! - single-pieced-, WH (Heeres ie. KM) medal-bar (ie. \'Feld- o. Bandspange\'), showing the ribbon for a: \'WH-DA der 3. Kl.\' that has a (larger-sized- and golden-coloured-) eagle-device attached This is a neat - and actually unusually seen! - single-pieced-, WH (Heeres ie. Kriegsmarine) medal-bar (ie. 'Feld- o. Bandspange'), showing the ribbon for a: 'Dienstauszeichnung für 12 Jahre Treue Dienste' (or: 12-years loyal-service medal) that has a (larger-sized- and golden-coloured-) eagle-device period-attached and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit used and/or moderately worn-), condition. The - detailed and unusually larger-sized - (eagle-) device has a neat and/or minimally 'frosted' albeit detailed appearance: it retains a nice and/or bright-golden-coloured age-patina. The piece - which is of the 'standard' ie. larger (ie. 3 cms. wide-) version - is fully functional and comes mounted on its functional pin-/catch set-up: it is 'backed' with a piece of green-coloured wool as more often. Simply an attractive 'Feld- o. Bandspange': ideal to upgrade or decorate almost any TR-related tunic!
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 actually very scarcely encountered! - (pre)WWII-period, so-called: \'Motorrad-Kennzeichen-Schild\' (ie. motorcycle numberplate as was specifically intended for the front-fender) depicting the \'Kennzeichen\' that reads: \'IZ 206588\' This is an attractive - and actually very scarcely encountered! - (pre)WWII-period, so-called: 'Motorrad-Kennzeichen-Schild' (ie. motorcycle numberplate as was specifically intended for the front-fender) depicting the 'Kennzeichen' that reads: 'IZ 206588' and that is accordingly ink-stamped and that comes in an overall very nice- (and only moderately used- ie. once mounted-), condition. The plate retains almost all of its period-applied paint and just shows some obvious and regular usage-marks (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece shows various ink- (ie. paint!) stamps (or: Dienstsiegel) that read: 'Landrat des Oberbergischen Kreises in Gummersbach' (as can be seen on the pictures). The licence-plate registration-characters 'IZ' signified that the motorcycle who used this number was registered in the so-called: 'Rheinprovinz' (wherein also the town of Gummersbach is located). Simply a very attractive - and with certainty scarcely encountered! - 'Motorrad-Kennzeichen-Schild' that is priced according to its obvious scarcity and/or desrirability!
Attractive - and almost matching! - pair of later-war-period-, so-called: \'M44\'-pattern-, simplified WH (Heeres) NCO-type- shoulderstraps, as was intended for usage by a: \'Feldwebel der Infanterie-Truppen\' This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - almost matching pair of later-war-period-, so-called: 'M44'-pattern-, simplified WH (Heeres) NCO-type- shoulderstraps, as piped in the neat white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured branchcolour, as were intended for usage by a: 'Feldwebel der Infanterie-Truppen' (or: sergeant who served within the infantry-troops), that comes in overall nice (albeit moderately used- ie. worn- and/or minimally stained-), condition. The shoulderstraps - which are both measure approximately 12 ie. 12,3 cms. in length each as more often seen - have the neat, 'silk-like'-type piping attached as more encountered with these later-war-period shoulderstraps. The shoulderstraps - which originate from a larger cloth- and insignia-collection I recently acquired - are constructed following the typical '1944 cloth-minimising production-manner', using different shades of wool and/or material (see pictures). The boards come naturally mounted on their functional tongues and have the neat 'standard'-type- and/or bluish-grey-coloured- (and/or somewhat 'sub-dued'-) 'Heeres'-type NCO-braid attached. The straps also show two (identical- and/or zinc-based-) pips attached denoting the NCOs'-rank of: 'Feldwebel'. It should be noted that all 'M44'-pattern-, NCO-type straps are actually quite hard to find and can easily be graded 'scarce': even more so when they are of the NCO-type. Simply an attractive - and/or fully 'text-book'-, M44-pattern NCO-type pair that belonged to a: 'Feldwebel der Infanterie-Truppen'!
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. Fj.-Regiments und Mitglied einer LW-Kriegsschule\' The attractive pair is piped in the golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour and has a secondary, blue- (ie. 'blauer'-) coloured branchcolour attached: as such, the pair was intended for usage by a: 'Leutnant der Reserve eines Flieger- o. Fallschirm-regiments u. Mitglied einer LW-Kriegsschule' (or: reserve-lieutnant within a pilot- or paratroopers-regiment who served within one of LW-war-schools). The pair was presumably never used nor tunic-attached and comes in an overall very nice (ie. 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'-), condition. The shoulderboards - which are constructed from the greyish-blue- (ie. 'grauer'-) coloured-, 'smooth-type' (ie. moleskin-like-) wool - come 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 - show a matching pair of the neat (golden-toned- and I deem 'Buntmetall'-based- and/or: 'Gothic'-styled) so-called: 'KS'-cyphers attached denoting the officers'-rank of: 'Leutnant der Reserve' (ie. reserve-lieutnant). The straps only show some storage-age and are void of any damage or alike. This pair originated from a small lot of 'cyphered' LW-straps and boards that I recently acquired for the web-site: it should, moreover, be noted that all 'cyphered' LW-straps are very hard to find. Simply a great occasion to acquire an attractive - and rarely seen! - officers'-type, LW-shoulderstrap-pair that was intended for a: 'Leutnant der Reserve eines Flieger- o. Fj.-Regiments und Mitglied einer LW-Kriegsschule'!
Attractive - and clearly used- ie. tunic-removed! - example of a WH (Heeres ie. Waffen-SS) so-called: \'Demjansk\'-campaign-shield as executed in magnetic, so-called: \'Eisenblech\' This is an attractive - and/or truly detailed! - example of the (actually fairly scarcely encountered!) WH (Heeres ie. Waffen-SS) so-called: 'Demjansk'-campaign-shield that comes in an overall nice- (albeit surely worn- and/or once tunic-attached-), condition. The (magnetic and minimally converse-shaped-) shield - which is executed in greyish-silver-coloured so-called: 'Eisenblech' - comes naturally complete with its metal-based back-plate and cloth (ie. woolen-based) backing: all four of its period pins ie. prongs are still present and in place but the piece has lost its protective, paper-based backing (as can be seen on the pictures). The shield shows some minimal age and/ or staining caused by moderate wear: some minimal (rust)staining is visible and/or present, but the shield still retains truly extraordinary detail as to be expected (most ie. all of its period-applied finish is present and or preserved). The shield was of course never cleaned nor polished and comes as found. It was found at a private household and was simply stored as such for decades: it was never before part of a collection. It should furthermore be mentioned that these 'Demjansk' campaign-shields are nowadays quite hard to come by. Still an attractive - and naturally 100% original! - example of this collectable and desirable campaign-shield that is accordingly priced!
Attractive - and desirable! - maker- (ie. \'L/14\'-) marked-, miniature of an: \'Ehrenkreuz der Deutschen Mutter in Gold\' as was produced by the: \'F. Orth\'-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/14'-) marked example of a miniature: 'Ehrenkreuz der Deutschen Mutter in Gold' (or: golden-class mothers'-cross) as was produced by the: 'Friedrich Orth'-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 award 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/14' (signifying that it is a piece that was produced by the Austrian maker: 'Friedrich Orth' based in the town of Vienna (Wien). The golden-toned finish has been nicely preserved and the piece was 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, 'L/14'-marked: 'Ehrenkreuz der Deutschen Mutter in Gold'-miniature that comes stored in its rarely seen generic-styled 'LDO-etui'!
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-et This is an attractive - and with certainty desirable! - neatly maker- (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 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'. 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 piece is as stated above a non maker-marked example (as is more often encountered). The miniature comes mounted on its original safety-pin attachment, fitted for easy attaching it to a dress. 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).

Attractive - and detailed! - \'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Bronze\' (or: bronze infantry assault-badge ie. IAB), being a maker- (ie. \'S.H.u.C.o. 41\'-) marked example as executed in bronze-coloured, zinc-based metal (ie. \'Feinzink\') This is an attractive - albeit clearly worn but nevertheless very detailed! - example of a used ie. worn: 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Bronze' (or: bronze infantry assault-badge ie. IAB), being a maker- (ie. 'S.H.u.C.o. 41'-) marked example as executed in bronze-coloured, zinc-based metal (ie. 'Feinzink' that comes in an overall nice, condition. This example is a clearly maker-marked award that shows the super-imposed makers'-designation: 'S.H.u.C.o. 41' on its back (ie. being the abbreviation for the: 'Sohni, Heubach & Co.'-company). The award has a 'typical' catch and/or hinge set-up (which are both not altered nor damaged and are both fully functional). The badge seems IMO to be totally uncleaned and has a still a nice, somewhat glossy and/or somewhat golden-bronze-coloured age-patina: a fair bit of its original bronze-finish is present and/or preserved (as can be seen on the pictures). The (silver-coloured-) 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 - shows some wear and/or staining and was IMO never cleaned. Simply a nice and neatly bronze-toned- and/or: 'Feinzink'-based, 'S.H.u.C.o.'-IAB that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and detailed! - \'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber\' (or: silver-class infantry assault-badge ie. IAB), being a maker- (ie. \'S.H.u.C.o. 41\'-) marked example as executed in greyish-silver-toned, zinc-based metal (ie. \'Feinzink\') This is an attractive - albeit clearly worn but nevertheless very detailed! - example of a used ie. worn: 'Infanterie Sturmabzeichen in Silber' (or: silver-class infantry assault-badge ie.

The award has a 'typical' catch and/or hinge set-up (which are both not altered nor damaged and are both fully functional). The badge seems IMO to be totally uncleaned and has a still a nice, somewhat 'matted' and/or somewhat greyish-coloured age-patina: a fair bit of its original greyish-silver-finish is present and/or preserved (as can be seen on the pictures). The (silver-coloured-) pin and/or catch (ie. set-up-) are as stated above of course fully functional and present.

Simply a nice and neatly greyish-silver-toned- and/or: 'Feinzink'-based, 'S.H.u.C.o.'-IAB that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and early pattern! - neatly enamelled- (and bright-red-coloured) \'N.S.D.A.P.\' membership-pin- ie. party badge (ie. \'Mitgliedsabzeichen\') which is nicely marked on its back with a: \'Ges.Gesch.\'-patent-pending designation The lapel-pin - which has been IMO only minimally used ie. worn - has a nicely preserved age-patina and has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished: it is showing normal wear-marks but is totally void of any (enamel-) damage (see pictures): just some regular wear ie. scratches are noticable. The badge shows moreover a somewhat tarnished finish as can be seen from the pictures. This example - which has a bright-red-coloured- (ie. enamelled) area - comes mounted on its regular-type pin- ie. pin/catch-set-up which is present (but that is regrettably incomplete ie. period-repaired). Simply an attractive, early-pattern 'N.S.D.A.P.' membership-pin-/ie. party badge that is IMO priced according to its replaced pin!
Attractive - and early pattern! - \'HJ\' (\'Hitlerjugend\') district-triangle (ie. \'Gebietsdreieck\') entitled: \'Süd Franken\' (being I deem a never worn example that misses its \'RzM\'-etiket) This is a 'male'-specimen, indicating that it is neatly woven in golden-yellow-coloured linnen on a black-coloured- (and also linnen-based-) background. This example was probably issued but was (I deem) simply never used- nor even tunic-attached: it misses, however, its once-attached 'RzM-etiket' (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece - that can easily be determined as an early-pattern example due to its differently styled Gothic script - just shows some minimal staining caused by decades of storage and/or handling only (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply an attractive, early-pattern male-type 'HJ' ('Hitlerjugend') district-triangle (ie. 'Gebietsdreieck') that is accordingly priced!
Attractive - and early period! - enamelled, so-called: \'N.S.D.A.P.\' membership-pin ie. party-badge (or: \'Parteiabzeichen\') which is nicely maker- (ie. \'Hofstätter\'-) marked and bearing a: \'Ges.Gesch.\'-patent-pending marking The attractive lapel-pin - which has been IMO moderately used ie. worn - has a nicely preserved age-patina and has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished: it is showing normal wear but is totally void of any (enamel-) damage (see pictures): just some regular wear ie. minimal scratches are noticable. The badge shows moreover a somewhat tarnished- (ie. somewhat darkened-) finish as can be seen from the pictures. This example - which has a bright-red-coloured- (ie. enamelled) area - comes mounted on its regular-type pin-/catch-set-up which is naturally still fully functional and/or present. I deem this an attractive (and early-period!) maker-marked 'N.S.D.A.P.'-membership-pin-/ie. party badge that is IMO priced according to its comparative rarity and/or desirability!
Attractive - and exceedingly rarely encountered! - Belgian WWII-period collaborationists\'-cap-badge (ie. \'Mützenabzeichen\') as was intended for an officer who served within the: \'ZB/DM\' This is a truly attractive - and exceedingly rarely encountered! - neatly hand-embroidered, Belgian WWII-period collaborationists'-cap-badge (ie. 'Mützenabzeichen') as was intended for an officer who served within the: 'ZB/DM' (ie. 'Zwarte Brigade/Dietsche Militie') and that comes in a wonderful (ie. never cap-attached- ie. virtually mint-/unissued-), condition. The piece is nicely executed in (bright) silver-coloured braid on a black-coloured- and/or woolen-based background. Moreover, does it show some high-lighted areas as executed in black-coloured linnen. The piece is nicely 'backed' with a piece of thin-shpaed, black-coloured paper and was used on the (black-coloured) visor-caps worn by this (hardly known) organisation. The piece - which has an approximate wingspan of 10,4 cms. - shows a 'ZB/DM - Wolfshook'-insignia above the trapezoid-shaped 'VNV-' (ie. 'Vlaams Nationaal Verbond'-) party-symbol. I am convinced that this interesting Belgian WWII-period-, officers'-pattern- collaborationists' ie. 'ZB/DM'-cap-badge (ie. 'Mützenabzeichen') is exceedingly rare: I deem that I have priced it accordingly!
Attractive - and fairly early-period! - HJ- (ie. \'Hitlerjugend\'-) related day-badge (ie. \'tinnie\'), as was issued to commemorate the: \'1. Fest der Jugend - 24. Juni 1933\' This is an attractive - and fairly early-period and actually not that easily encountered! - HJ- (ie. 'Hitlerjugend'-) related day-badge (ie. 'tinnie' or: 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen') that was issued to commemorate a specific youth-rally ie. gathering named the: '1. Fest der Jugend' that was held in the year 1933 and that comes in an overall very nice (albeit issued ie. moderately worn-), condition. The very detailed and/or pronounced badge - which is executed in golden-bronze- (ie. copper-) toned metal - truly shows extraordinary detail and was almost certainly never cleaned nor polished. The (non-maker-marked-) piece shows a so-called: 'Reichsadler'-sign over a campfire with below that a swastika-sign and text: '1. Fest der Jugend - 24. Juni 1933'. The badge comes naturally mounted on its (functional) pin-/catch set-up. Simply an attractive, youth-related 'tinnie' ie. 'Veranstaltungsabzeichen'!

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 large-sized! - shirt-removed example of a linnen-based WH \'Luftwaffe\' sport-shirt badge (ie. \'Brustadler für Sportanzug\') as was executed in the neat \'BeVo-weave pattern This is a neat - and only moderately used- ie. carefully shirt-removed - example of a larger-sized and/or linnen-based WH 'Luftwaffe' sport-shirt badge (ie. 'Brustadler für Sportanzug') as was executed in the neat 'BeVo-weave pattern and that comes in an overall nice- (and just minimally used-), condition. These decorative badges were worn on the specific airforce, linnen-based sport-shirts and/or related garments. The badge on offer here is of the larger-sized version (having a 'wingspan' of approximately 24 cms.) and is neatly executed in the so-called 'BeVo'-weave technique. The piece - which shows an interwoven, black-coloured national eagle-device on a beige-white-coloured- and/or linnen-based background - is carefully confectioned: it is just tiny bit wrinkled and show some minor aging ie. staining caused by regular handling and/or wear. Simply a nice opportunity to acquire an attractive Luftwaffe-sportshirt breast-eagle for a competitive price!
Attractive - and fairly rarely encountered! - pre-WWII-period-, so-called: \'SS-Verfügungstruppen\' (ie. \'SS-VT\') M34-pattern, side-cap \'skull-button\' being a maker- (ie. \'SS - RzM - 1194/39\'-) marked example as executed in field-grey-coloured meta This is an attractive - and actually fairly rarely encountered! - pre-WWII-period-, so-called: 'SS-Verfügungstruppen' (ie.

'SS - RzM - 1194/39'-) marked example as was executed in field-grey-coloured (and IMO zinc- and/or aluminium-based-) metal and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly used- and/or worn-), condition. This example is neatly maker-marked: 'SS - RzM - 1194/39' on its back and is naturally a piece of unquestionable originality. The detailed- and pronounced cap-button - which came together with its original attachment-ring as most certainly once worn - is only moderately used and shows a partly present field-grey-coloured (and shiny!) surface that still shows excellent detail: it just shows some staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very nice and with certainty unusually encountered piece of genuine SS cap-insignia!
Attractive - and fairly rarely encountered! - pre-WWII-period-, so-called: \'SS-Verfügungstruppe\' (ie. \'SS-VT\') M34-pattern, side-cap \'skull-button\' being a maker- (ie. \'SS-RzM-63\'-) marked example as executed in silver-coloured metal This is an attractive - and actually fairly rarely encountered! - pre-WWII-period-, so-called: 'SS-Verfügungstruppe' (ie.

'SS-RzM-63'-) marked example as executed in silverish-grey-coloured metal and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly used- and/or worn-), condition. This example is neatly maker-marked: 'SS-RzM-63' on its back and is naturally a piece of unquestionable originality. The detailed- and pronounced cap-button - which came together with its original attachment-ring as most certainly once worn - is only moderately used and has an almost fully preserved silver-coloured surface that still shows excellent detail: it just shows some (rust)staining in one of it eyes (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very nice and with certainty unusually encountered piece of genuine SS cap-insignia!

This example is neatly maker-marked (ie. dated): 'RzM-1194/39-SS' on its back and is naturally a piece of unquestionable originality. The cap-button is only moderately used and has an almost fully preserved field-grey-coloured surface that still shows excellent detail (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very nice and with certainty unusually encountered piece of SS cap-insignia!
Attractive - and fairly scarcely encountered! - early-pattern armbadge (ie. \'Ärmelabzeichen\') as was intended for a female member within the: \'Deutscher Frauenarbeitsdienst\' (or: women\'s labour-service) This is an attractive - and fairly scarcely encountered! - early-pattern armbadge (ie. 'Ärmelabzeichen o. Ärmelraute') as was intended for a female member who served within the: 'Deutscher Frauenarbeitsdienst' (or: women's labour-service) and that comes in an overall very nice (and IMO only moderately used- ie. tunic-removed-), condition. The neat badge - which is somewhat shaped as a regular 'HJ-Raute' - measures 9 x 7 cms. 4,5 cms. and shows a black-coloured swastika-sign surrounded by some cornflowers on a red- and white-coloured background. The 'BeVo'-woven-type badge - which was to be worn on the left upper-arm - was clearly worn and carefully tunic-removed (it still shows some minimal stitching-holes and is minimally stained as can be seen on the pictures). The 'Deutscher Frauenarbeitsdienst' was the predecessor of the later-founded: 'RADwJ' (or: 'Reichsarbeitsdienst des weiblichen Jugend'). Simply an attractive, early-period female-related TR-related 'Ärmelabzeichen' that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and fairly scarcely encountered! - example of a \'boxed\', \'Verwundeten-Abzeichen in Silber\', being a maker- (ie. \'13\'- being \'G. Brehmer\'-) marked example as was executed in silver-coloured, so-called: \'Tombak\' ie. \'Buntmetall\' The attractive badge is as stated a clearly maker- (ie. '13'-) marked example that was executed in (bright-) silver-toned-, so-called: 'Tombak' (ie. 'Buntmetall'). The badge was with certainly issued and/or worn and does show only moderate wear: it comes, naturally, mounted on its fully functional- and/or: typically, thin-shaped pin and typical catch (ie. catch-set-up) as is more often encountered on wound-badges by this particular maker (see pictures). The badge is most likely cleaned but nevertheless retains almost all of its silver-toned finish (some of the copper-based 'underlay is however visible in the higher-placed areas) and does show some minimal tarnish and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). 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/or kept for decades. This - unmarked - etui has a bordeaux-red-coloured- (and velvet-based-) inner-section that shows the signs of having been stored with the WB in it and comes in an overall, equally nicely preserved, condition (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply an attractive and/or with certainty desirable 'boxed' 'Buntmetall'-based silver-class woundbadge that was produced by the maker (ie. 'Hersteller') 'Gustav Brehmer' based in the town of Marneukirchen in Sachsen: hard to find a nicer and truly untouched WB-set for a more interesting price!
Attractive - and fairly scarcely encountered! - HJ (ie. \'Hitlerjugend\') honorary district-triangle entitled: \'Landjahr\', still retaining its original \'RzM\'-etiket - overall nice (albeit moderately used ie. worn- and/or 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 entitled: 'Landjahr' still retaining its original 'RzM'-etiket, 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. The piece still retains its paper-based so-called: 'RzM'-etiket (see pictures). 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 a nice and scarcely encountered HJ-related item: hard to find a nicer example for a more interesting price!

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 (remains are still visible) and does show some minimal carton-remains (caused by having been glued into an album once).

'Adler für Polizei-Sportanzug') as was executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern on an 'off-white'-coloured background and that comes in an overall nice- (ie. never folded- nor confectioned- ie. 'virtually mint'-), condition. The neat piece - which is of the larger-sized pattern that measures approximately: 22 x 19,5 cms. in size - was simply never pre-folded nor confectioned and has an approximate wingspan of 20 cms. as to be expected. The piece is just a tiny bit dusty-, yellowed- and/or stained simply caused by decades of storage. Simply an attractive and very decorative 'Polizei'-related sports'-badge that is accordingly priced!

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 scarcely encountered! - \'DAF- (\'Deutches Arbeitsfront\') ie. \'KDF\'- (\'Kraft durch Freude\'-) related white-coloured- (period-souvenir) cap-tally (ie. \'Mützenband\') entitled: \'M.S. Wilhelm Gustloff\' This is an attractive - and with certainty scarcely encountered! - 'DAF- ('Deutches Arbeitsfront') ie. 'KDF'- ('Kraft durch Freude'-) related white-coloured- (period-souvenir) cap-tally (ie. 'Mützenband') entitled: 'M.S. Wilhelm Gustloff' that comes in a very nice (ie. IMO moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. The cap-tally - which is woven in multi-coloured linnen on a beige-white-coloured background comes in a full-length condition and measures approximately 92 cms. in length. The piece is neatly excecuted in so-called: 'BeVo'-like weave-pattern - and is as stated woven in (bright!) multi-coloured (ie. almost 'flat-wire'-like-) thread (as can be seen on the pictures). It does shows some (minimal) age, wear and/or staining but is totally void of any real damage. I could not find much reference-material concerning this neat souvenir-related item: I deem that these attractive pieces could be acquired on the (by the 'DAF- ('Deutches Arbeitsfront') ie. 'KDF'- ('Kraft durch Freude'-) organised-) holidays on board of the M.S. Gustloff and am convinced that this is a scarcely seen example that would merit additional investigative work. As most certainly known was the 'M.S. Wilhelm Gustloff' subject of an air-raid that took place on 30 January 1945. It was hit by Soviet submarine S-13 in the Baltic Sea while evacuating German civilians, Nazi officials and military personnel from Gdynia (now: Gotenhafen) as the Red Army advanced. Its is estimated that 9,400 people died, which makes it the largest loss of life in a single ship sinking in history. I deem that this attractive and desirable example is accordingly priced!

'Dienstuhr') of the make: 'Helios' having a black-coloured dial-plate and/or engraved back-plate that reads: 'D 38440 H' and that comes in an overall very nice and/or fully functional, condition.

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 above 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 (especially on the back as can be seen on the pictures). As stated above is the piece still fully functional and running. Simply a very nice and truly scarcely seen personal-equiment piece: I deem that I have priced this attractive example accordingly!

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.

The piece - which is of a pre-war- production - bears the: 'Ges.Gesch.'-patent-pending marking and additional date: '39' (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 never worn, condition. Simply a very nice and desirable belt-buckle that is IMO priced according to its 'mint-/unissued'-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!

Attractive - and fairly unusually encountered! - Dutch volunteer-related breastbadge as was intended for members within the: \'Germanische Landdienst\' being a detailed example that shows a (period-) re-attached pin-/catch set-up This is a neat - and fairly rarely- ie. with certainty unusually encountered! - Dutch volunteer-related breastbadge as was intended for members who served within the: 'Germanische Landdienst', being a detailed example that shows a (period-) re-attached pin-/catch set-up.

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 - pair of Eastern volunteer- (ie. \'Ostvölker\'-) related, printed collar-tabs as was intended for a: \'Turkistanischer\'-volunteer within the \'Deutsche Wehrmacht\' (ie. within the: \'Turkistanisches Legion\') This is an attractive - fully matching and clearly used- ie. carefully tunic-removed! - pair of Eastern volunteer- (ie. 'Ostvölker'-) related, printed collar-tabs (ie. 'Kragenspiegel für Mannschaften') as piped in the neat bright-blue- (ie. 'hellblauer'-) branchcolour as was specifically intended for a: 'Turkistanischer'-volunteer who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' (ie. within the: 'Turkistanisches Legion') and that comes in an overal very nice- (albeit moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. The tabs - which are of the typical, linnen-based 'printed-pattern' - are darker-green-coloured and show the bright-blue- (ie. 'hellblauer'-) coloured piping (as can be seen on the pictures) signifying that they were intended for - and clearly worn by! - a: 'Turkistanischer'-volunteer who served within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' (ie.: 'Turkistanisches Legion'). At the time of production of these specific 'Ostvölker'-collar-tabs (being I deem later in the war) all sorts of available material was used: something that is reflected in the somewhat 'shabby'-finish of both tabs. The pair was clearly used and was carefully tunic-removed (it still shows some of its thread- and stitching-remains as can be seen on the pictures). I personally have never had such a truly used pair on offer and deem that the pair is of absolute rarity: I therefore deem that this very intersting pair is priced according to its obvious rarity and/or desirability!
Attractive - and fully matching - pair of WH (Luftwaffe) shoulderstraps as was executed in HBT-type cloth and piped in the bright-yellow-coloured branchcolour as was intended for a: \'Soldat der Flieger- o. Fallschirmjäger-Truppen\' This is an attractive - and fully matching and with certainty scarcely seen! - pair of WH (Luftwaffe) shoulderstraps as was executed in HBT-type cloth and piped in the bright-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour as was intended for a: 'Soldat der Flieger- o. Fallschirmjäger-Truppen' (or: simple pilot- or paratrooper-soldier) and that comes in an overall very nice- (IMO only minimally used- and/or worn-), condition. The straps - which measure 10.6 cms. in length each - have the desirable 'silk-like'-type piping attached and shows the signs of having been slightly worn and used (they are a tiny bit dirty ie. stained). The straps came naturally mounted on their functional tongues and are neatly 'backed' with bluish-coloured, LW-type wool (as can be seen on the pictures). These HBT-style shoulderstraps can easily be considered 'fairly scarce' and saw also usage by the (later-war-period-) so-called: LW 'Felddivisionen' (they were for example used on the 3/4-sized camouflaged FD-smocks). It has been some time that I had an equally nicely preserved pair on offer!
Attractive - and fully matching and scarcely encountered! - pair of \'M36\'-styled (ie. rounded-pattern) WH (Heeres) EM-type-, shoulderstraps as was intended for - and worn by! - a: \'Soldat eines Gebirgsjäger-Regiments\' The neat shoulderstraps - which are IMO only minimally used ie. worn - measure approximately 13 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 attached. The set comes mounted on its functional tongues and was IMO moderately used and/or worn. The pair - which is as stated above - fully 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. It should be noted that all enlisted-mens'-type 'Gebirgsjäger'- (ie. mountain-troopers-) related shoulderstraps can easily be graded 'very scarce'. I has been some time that I found such an attractive shoulderstrap-pair!
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-) condit 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: 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 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 not '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 (Luftwaffe) officers\'-type shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs as was intended for usage by a: \'Leutnant eines Flieger- o. Fallschirm-Rgts.\' This is an attractive, four-pieced insignia-set comprising of a (fully matching!) pair of WH (Luftwaffe) officers'-type shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs both piped in the bright-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour, as was intended for usage by a: 'Leutnant eines Flieger- o. Fallschirm-Regiments' (or: lieutnant who served within a pilot- or paratroopers-regiment) and that comes in a wonderful (albeit minimally used- ie. worn- and/or once tunic-attached-), condition. All four insignia-pieces are as stated above piped in the golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour and were as such intended for usage by a: 'Leutnant eines Flieger- o. Fallschirm-Regiments'. The neat shoulderboards - which are constructed from the golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured and/or 'smooth-type' (ie. moleskin-like-) wool - come in an excellent condition overall and will be hard to be upgraded (the pair is fully matching and never had any tongues: they were used as a pair of the 'sew-in-pattern' (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 10,5 cms. in length each - never had any pips attached, denoting the officers'-rank of: 'Leutnant'. The neatly hand-embroidered collar-tabs (which are also fully matching and show equal and superb detail!) have the carton-based 'backings' and have also been carefully tunic-removed (some minimal stitching-remains are still present and/or visible as can be noticed from the pictures). The grouping originates from a private household in Germany where it was recently found: it was never before in collectors'-hands: it should be noted that these attractive - and matching! - officers'-type insignia-sets as intended for: 'Offiziere eines Flieger- o. Fallschirmregiments' are not that easily encountered!
Attractive - and fully matching! - 4-pieced insignia-set comprising of a pair of WH (Luftwaffe) officers\'-type shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs, as was intended for usage by a: \'Leutnant eines Flieger- o. Fallschirmjäger-Regiments\' This is an attractive - albeit clearly used and/or partly minimally moth-damaged - four-pieced insignia-set comprising of a (fully matching!) pair of WH (Luftwaffe) officers'-type shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs, as was intended for usage by a: 'Leutnant eines Flieger- o. Fallschirmjäger-Regiments' (or: lieutnant who served within a pilot- or paratrooper-regiment) and that comes in a moderately used- (ie. worn- and/or once tunic-attached-), condition. All four insignia-pieces are piped in the neat, golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour. The neat shoulderboards - which are constructed from the 'smooth-type' (ie. moleskin-like-) wool - come in an excellent condition overall and will be hard to be upgraded (the pair is fully matching and comes mounted on its typical, officers'-pattern tongues (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' ie. stained caused by normal age and/or storage for decades (as can be seen on the pictures). The boards - which measure approximately 10,7 cms. in length each - never had any pips attached, denoting the officers-rank of: 'Leutnant'. The neatly hand-embroidered collar-tabs (which are also fully matching but that show some minimal moth-damage) have the 'buckram'-based 'backings' and have also been carefully tunic-removed: they were (IMO) once tunic-attached (as can be noticed from the pictures). Simply a neat and/or fully matching 4-pieced, LW-insignia-grouping that belonged to a: 'Leutnant eines Flieger- o. Fallschirmjäger-Regiments' and that is IMO accordingly priced!
Attractive - and fully matching! - 4-pieced insignia-set comprising of a pair of WH (Luftwaffe) officers\'-type shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs, as was intended for usage by an: \'Oberleutnant eines Nachrichten-Regiments\' This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - four-pieced insignia-set comprising of a (fully matching!) pair of WH (Luftwaffe) officers'-type shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs, as was intended for usage by an: 'Oberleutnant eines Nachrichten-Regiments' (or: lieutnant first-class who served within a signals-regiment) and that comes in a minimally used- (ie. worn- and/or once tunic-attached-), condition. All four insignia-pieces are piped in the neat, reddish-copper-brown- (ie. 'kupferbrauner'-) coloured branchcolour. The neat shoulderboards - which are constructed from the 'smooth-type' (ie. moleskin-like-) wool - come in an excellent condition overall and will be hard to be upgraded (the pair is fully matching and comes mounted on its typical, officers-pattern tongues (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 - which came with a pair of silver-toned 'screw-on'-buttons (or: 'Schraubknöpfe) - are just a tiny bit 'tarnished' caused by normal age and/or storage for decades (as can be seen on the pictures). The boards - which measure approximately 10,5 cms. in length each - each have a (golden-toned) pip attached, denoting the officers-rank of: 'Oberleutnant'. The neatly hand-embroidered collar-tabs (which are also fully matching) have the 'buckram'-based 'backings' and have also been carefully tunic-removed: they were once tunic-attached (as can be noticed from the pictures). Simply a fully matching 4-pieced, LW-insignia-grouping that belonged to an: 'Oberleutnant eines Nachrichten-Regiments'!
Attractive - and fully matching! - 4-pieced insignia-set comprising of a pair of WH (Luftwaffe) \'dual-piped\'-, officers\'-type shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs, as was intended for usage by a: \'Leutnant der Res. eines Flieger- o. Fallschirm-Rgts.\' This is an attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - four-pieced insignia-set comprising of a (fully matching!) pair of WH (Luftwaffe) 'dual-piped'-, officers'-type shoulderboards and dito collar-tabs, as 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), that comes in a clearly used- (ie. worn- and/or once tunic-attached- and regrettably partly moth-damaged), condition. All four insignia-pieces are piped in the golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour and have a secondary, bright-blue- (ie. 'blauer'-) coloured branchcolour attached: as such, the set was intended for usage by a: 'Leutnant der Reserve eines Flieger- o. Fallschirm-Regiments'. The neat shoulderboards - which are constructed from the golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured and/or 'smooth-type' (ie. moleskin-like-) wool - come in an excellent condition overall and will be hard to be upgraded (the pair is fully matching and never had any tongues: it was worn as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type (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 10,3 cms. in length each - never had any pips attached, denoting the officers-rank of: 'Leutnant'. The neatly hand-embroidered collar-tabs (which are also fully matching) have the 'buckram'-based 'backings' and have also been carefully tunic-removed: they were once tunic-attached by means of metal 'snaps' which are still attached to the tabs (as can be noticed from the pictures). One the tabs regrettably shows some moth-damage. It should, however, be noted that these attractive, dual-piped officers'-type insignia-sets as intended for a: 'Offiziere der Reserve eines Flieger- o. Fallschirmregiments' can easily be graded: 'scarce' and are truly not that often offered for sale!
Attractive - and fully matching! - DRK (ie. \'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz\') insignia-set comprising of a pair of white-piped EM-type shoulderstraps and dito collar-tabs as was intended for a: \'DRK Helfer\' This is a truly attractive - fully matching and most certainly not that easily encountered! - DRK (ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz') insignia-set comprising of a pair of (typical) white-piped enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps and dito collar-tabs as was intended for a DRK-staff-member holding the rank of: 'DRK Helfer' and that comes in an overall nice- (I deem issued- albeit never worn- nor tunic-attached-), condition. The unusually seen shoulderstraps - which never had any tongues attached and that were clearly intended to be used as a pair of the 'sew-in'-type - measure approximately 12 cms. in length each and come in a wonderful condition, overall. They are constructed from the typical (greyish-blue-coloured) 'velvet'-like wool and have the neat white- (ie. 'weisser'-) coloured (and/or desirable 'silk-like'-type) piping attached (as can be seen on the pictures): it just shows some minimal age but is totally void of any damage or alike. The pair came with a (fully matching- and equally scarcely seen!) fully matching pair of greyish-coloured- and/or 'smooth'-woolen based collar-tabs (ie. 'Kragenspiegel'): these are piped with (typical) silver-toned 'braid' and show the bright-red-enamelled (and fully undamaged) red-cross-devices period-attached (and have the beige-yellow-coloured 'Buckram'-based 'backings'). The pair still comes 'sewn-together' and was simply never used nor tunic-attached (as can be seen on the pictures). This neat DRK-insignia-set was never before part of a collection and came as such from a private household in Germany. Simply an attractive DRK (ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz') insignia-set as was intended for a DRK-staffmember holding the rank of: 'DRK Helfer' and that is I deem priced according to its comparative rarity and/or desirability!
Attractive - and fully matching! - early- (ie. pre-) war-period pair of WH (Heeres) NCO-type- (ie. M36-pattern, \'pointed ie. generic styled\') shoulderstraps, as was intended for usage by an: \'Oberfeldwebel des Heeres\' This is a truly attractive - and/or fully matching! - early- (ie. pre-) war-period pair of WH (Heeres) NCO-type- (ie. M36-pattern, 'pointed ie. generic styled') shoulderstraps, as was intended for - and/or with certainty worn by! - an: 'Oberfeldwebel des Heeres' (or: sergeant first-class) that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. moderately used and/or worn-), condition. The straps - which measure 12 cms. in length each - have naturally no piping (as is 'standard' for these early 'pointed-styled' shoulderstraps) and come mounted on their original tongues as issued and/or most certainly worn. Both straps come in a very nice- ie. fully 'text-book' condition and show only minimal wear and/or usage. Both have the darker-green-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks' and show the silverish-coloured- and 'standard-issue'-pattern, WH-type NCO-braid attached (as can be seen on the pictures). Moreover, do the straps show four (aluminium-based- and/or identical-) period-attached. All four devices show some minimal age and/or tarnish. Both straps - which are completely identical in execution and that show hardly any wear - were always together and were naturally worn as a pair. Simply a very attractive pair of 'generic-styled' shoulderstraps that can ideally be used to complete any (M36- ie. M40-pattern-) tunic!
Attractive - and fully matching! - early- (ie. pre-) war-period pair, WH (Heeres) EM-type- (ie. M36-pattern, \'pointed ie. generic styled\') shoulderstraps, as was intended for a: \'Soldat des Heeres\' This is an attractive - and/or fully matching! - early- (ie. pre-) war-period pair of non-'cyphered', WH (Heeres) NCO-type- (ie. M36-pattern, 'pointed ie. generic styled') shoulderstraps, as was intended for - and/or with certainty worn by! - a: 'Soldat des Heeres' and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. minimally used and/or worn-), condition. The straps - which measure approximately 11,5 cms. in length each - have naturally no piping (as is 'standard' for these early 'pointed-styled' shoulderstraps) and come mounted on their original tongues as issued and/or most certainly worn. Both straps come in a very nice- ie. fully 'text-book' condition and show only minimal wear and/or usage. Both have the darker-green-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks' and do not have (nor had) machine-embroidered 'cyphers': as such, they could have been used by soldiers of all branches within the 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' (as can be seen on the pictures). Both straps - which are completely identical in execution and that show hardly any wear - were always together and were naturally worn as a pair. Simply a very attractive pair of 'generic-styled' shoulderstraps that belonged to a: 'Soldat des Heeres' and that can ideally be used to complete any (M36- ie. M40-pattern-) tunic!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of \'cyphered\' WH (Heeres) \'M43\'-pattern shoulderstraps as was intended for an: \'Unterwachtmeister des Artillerie-Regiments 245\' and that comes as recently found This is an attractive pair of WH (Heeres) NCO-type- and neatly 'cyphered', so-called: 'M43'-pattern shoulderstraps as piped in the typical bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour as was intended for - and with certainty worn by! - an: 'Unterwachtmeister o. Unteroffizier des Artillerie-Regiments 245' (or: junior NCO who served within the artillery-regiment, numbered: '245' being part of the 'Infanterie-Division 245') and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used-, worn- and/or: most certainly carefully tunic-removed-), condition. The truly attractive 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. Next to this they show two (matching) pairs of silver-coloured- and zinc-based '2'-,'4'- and/or: '5'-numerals (ie. 'Ziffern') attached (something that was actually against regulations but that was more often seen). The straps were only moderately used- and/or worn and do show some moderate staining and/or age simply caused by moderate wear and/or decades of storage (as can be seen on the pictures). They come naturally mounted onto their functional tongues and have the neat 'standard'-type- and/or silver-coloured- (ie. somewhat sub-dued-pattern-) 'Heeres'-type NCO-braid attached, denoting the NCOs'-rank of: 'Unterwachtmeister o. Unteroffizier'. Simply an attractive shoulderstrap-pair that belonged to an: 'Unterwachtmeister des Artillerie-Regiments 245'!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of (early type!) bright-red-piped HJ (\'Hitlerjugend\') ie. \'Allgemeine HJ\' shoulderstraps, as was intended for a: \'Kameradschafsführer\' who served within: \'Bann 119\' (119 = Bann Stuttgart) This is a very attractive - and fully matching! - pair of (early type!) bright-red-piped (thus 'Allgemeine HJ') (ie. 'Hitlerjugend') shoulderstraps, as was intended for - and clearly worn by - a: 'Kameradschafsführer' who served within: 'Bann 119' (119 = Bann Stuttgart) and comes in an overall nice- (albeit clearly used- and/or worn-), condition. Both straps are void of a 'RzM'-etiket (something that is more often encountered and was most certainly caused by regular usage and/or wear). The set shows some regular wear and/or age, simply caused by regular usage and/or wear. The straps - which are executed in the light-brown- (ie. tan-) coloured linnen, having bright-red-embroidered '119'-numerals (which are executed in the neat so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei'!) and bright-red (rayon-based-) piping - never had any tongues and come as found and/or issued: the boards measure 11,2 cms. in length as more often encountered. The pair - which still shows two snaps attached intended for easy shirt-removal - shows a set of (regular-sized-, silver-coloured- and IMO 'Buntmetall'-based-) pips attached, denoting the members'-rank of: 'Kameradschafsführer'. The set originated from a private household and was never before in a collection. Simply a nice - and actually not that commonly encountered! - pair of early-type 'Allgemeine' HJ-shoulderstraps!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of (early type!), bright-red-piped HJ (\'Hitlerjugend\') ie. \'Allgemeine HJ\' shoulderstraps, as was intended for a: \'Hitlerjunge\' who served within: \'Bann 139\' (139 = Bann Döbeln) This is a very attractive - and fully matching! - pair of (early type!) bright-red-piped (thus 'Allgemeine HJ') (ie. 'Hitlerjugend') shoulderstraps, as was intended for - and clearly worn by - a: 'Hitlerjunge' who served within: 'Bann 139' (139 = Bann Döbeln) and that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit minimally used- and/or worn-), condition. One of the straps still shows its period-attached 'RzM'-etiket (something that is not always the case). The set shows some minimal wear and/or age, simply caused by regular usage and/or wear. The straps - which are executed in the light-brown- (ie. tan-) coloured linnen, having bright-red-embroidered '139'-numerals (which are executed in the neat so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei'!) and bright-red (rayon-based-) piping - never had any tongues and come as found and/or issued: the boards measure 11,6 cms. in length as more often encountered.

The straps are void of an 'RzM'-etiket (something that is more often seen). The set shows some minimal wear and/or age, simply caused by regular usage and/or wear.

Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that the straps came with a (matching) pair of field-grey-coloured- and/or pebbled-style '3'-buttons attached and that they still show their (period) attached metal-based 'snaps' (present in order to easily remove them from a shirt).

Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of (I deem) early-war-period- (ie. \'M40 type\') neatly \'cyphered\', WH (Heeres) EM-type shoulderstraps as was intended for usage by a: \'Soldat des Artillerie-Regiments 76\' This is an attractive - and/or fully matching! - (I deem) early-war-period- (ie.

'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour as was specifically intended for usage by a: 'Soldat des Artillerie-Regiments 76' (or: simply soldier who served within the 'heavy' artillery-regiment, numbered: '76') and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used- ie. worn and/or carefully tunic-removed-), condition. The neat straps - which are of the early-war-type - do just show moderate age and wear but are void of any real damage (one of the straps just shows a tiny moth-hole). They have the darker-green-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks' and do show as stated above the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour and/or woolen-type piping (as more often seen). The shoulderstraps never had tongues attached and were pieces that were intended to be worn as a pair of the 'sew-in type'. (I deem that it was a typical pair that was to be used on a dress-tunic or: 'Waffenrock'). The straps - which measure approximately 12,2 cms. in length each - show the neat (machine-embroidered by means of so-called: 'Kurbelstickerei'-) so-called: '7'- and '6'-cyphers ie. numerals (which are executed in the bright-red- ie. 'hochroter'-coloured wool as to be expected as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a decorative and/or fully 'text-book' and actually not that often encountered! - 'Heeres'-type, 'cyphered' shoulderstrap-pair that belonged to a: 'Soldat des Artillerie-Regiments 76'!

The shoulderstraps never had tongues attached and were pieces that were intended to be worn as a pair of the 'sew-in type'. (I deem that it was a typical pair that was to be used on a dress-tunic or: 'Waffenrock'). The thinner-shaped straps - which measure approximately 11,1 cms. in length each - show the 'standard'- (ie. early-) pattern WH (Heeres) NCO-braid attached and do show a (fully matching, silver-toned and 'Buntmetall'-based) '7'-numerals and four (equally styled and/or smaller-sized) pips period-attached denoting the NCOs-rank of: 'Oberwachtmeister'. Simply a decorative and/or fully 'text-book' - and actually not that often encountered! - 'Heeres'-type, 'cyphered' shoulderstrap-pair that belonged to an: 'Oberwachtmeister des Artillerie-Regiments 7'!
Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of (I deem) \'tropical-issue\' WH (Heeres) greenish-tan-coloured- and/or woolen-based, so-called: \'Wickel-Gamaschen\' (ie. puttees) being maker-marked examples that come in a moderately used- ie. worn-, condition This is an attractive - with certainty scarcely encountered and/or fully matching! - pair of (I deem) 'tropical-issue' WH (Heeres) greenish-tan-coloured- and/or woolen-based, so-called: 'Wickel-Gamaschen' (ie. puttees) that were worn in conjuction with the low-boots ie. 'Halbshuhe' being both nicely maker-marked examples that come in a moderately used- ie. worn-, condition. Both pieces were clearly worn and do show some moderate age, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Both pieces have a functional, metal-based closing-hook in place that shows an impressed 'L'- or 'R'-designation denoting that they are for respectively the left- (ie. 'linker') or right- (ie. 'rechter') side (as can benoticed on the pictures). Both 'Wickel-Gamaschen' show an (identical albeit hard to dcypher) ink-stamp that reads: '…..Textilwerke A.G.' (or alike). Simply a nice occasion to acquire a neat pair of 'tropical-issue', WH (Heeres) so-called: 'Wickel-Gamaschen' that is with certainty accordingly priced!
