Tropical to winter, infantry, tanks, artillery, assault boats, flamethrowers, grenades, machine guns etc. Basically anything heer related. The paper is overall crisp and clean but a few have small folded over corners from previous owners being careless when closing the envelope...

Small plaque with profile bust of Helmuth James Graf von Moltke. Moltke was a very forward thinking Field Marshall. At the top of this piece is a famous quote of his "Erst Wagen Dann Wagen" the meaning of which translates to "First you leap". His main theory being that one should attack strongly but never to plan to deeply past the point where contact is made. Since there are simply too many possibilities and varying factors it does no good to over plan to far into the future of a conflict...

Wonderfully made naval cannon made from wood from the U.S Frigate Constitution. This frigate, of course, was famous for some very famous successes against highly skilled British ships in the war of 1812. When the ship was overhauled in 1927 the old wood was made into souvenirs and sold to the public (Imagine that happening today?)...

The sinking of the Lusitania was considered an acceptable act in Germany and a medal was minted in honor of the incident. The British, of course, considered it very much a war crime. They reproduced the German medal and used it as a propaganda tool emphasizing the civilian loss of life. Indeed. on the reverse of the medal we even see Death working the ticket stand for prospective passengers. Medal is in its original box. The box shows solid wear and is missing one edge...

Either a small medallion or a token (About 3.5cm diameter) featuring G.FELDMARSCHALL V. HINDENBURG. The reverse has the saying of Hindenburg's: "nicht nur durchhalten sondern gründlich siegen" or "Don't just persevere but thoroughly win". Now that is really a cool thought. Dated 1914 1915 1916 around the edges. The edge is stamped IMIT BRONCE which is easy enough to translate. Nice wartime propaganda type piece. I do honestly think that Hindenburg is a very underrated historical figure...

Very interesting French flag that I assume is a regimental flag as the three barred symbols toward the end can't, in my eyes, be anything besides battalion colors. As there are very few French flags remaining from the war (A side effect of being out of the war very early and very quickly) there is little to compare this to but the construction is absolutely typical of WWII era with type of grommets used, type of fringe and how the sewing is executed...

From a Russian Collection, a grim reminder of a tragic time in world history. This rare group is respectfully offered and is made up of seven pin back badges and one lapel stick pin. They bear dates ranging from 1954 to 1965. They variously list the notorious camps of Buchenwald, Auschwitz, Ravensbruk, and Sachsen-Hausen They were apparently worn at various re unions by survivors meeting to both rejoice in survival and to remind the world that these deeds should never happen again...

Powerful plaque depicting angels casting out a German soldier from the city of Reims as the cathedral burns in the distance and the French civilians lie on the ground. The burning of this cathedral was one of the major propaganda points for the French during WWI. The plaque is in wonderful shape...

French historical medal commemorating the storming of the Bastille in 1789. Medal by Jean-Bertrand Andrieu. There are some things the French are just better at then anyone else; Food, wine, fluffy dogs, storming spooky prisons and making big fancy medals. This impressive (If historically inaccurate) portrayal of the storming of the Bastille is really an impressive work of art. At about 79mm in diameter this is a large item and sure is an attention grabber. On the reverse some jerk scratched some...

Here is a great item for the guy who understands the importance of this unit. We recently bought a collection and this belonged to the owner. He was sent to Europe right after the war and the unit was interrogating Nazis and gauging political climate and ramifications in post war Europe. This collection was really full of unique and interesting items rarely encountered, but this plaque was actually from his unit in the 1107th ARASU. I know two things about this unit. First, the 150 attachment wa...

This picture frame is just simply gorgeous. Shows the Bavarian crown and motto "IN TREUE FEST" at the top and a general at the bottom with a Blue Max around his neck and treacherous looking lions at his sides. There are draped flags at the top and the bottom. The sides are intricate pillars showing the other German state crests. Images 6-10 show the front and back shots of a crack and two repair jobs. To be honest, though, there is so much going on in this frame that even when one is looking for...
