This sword stand was made by a good friend of mine who is half carpenter and half artist. The listed price is for this particular sword stand. Hand crafted of exotic wood, this stand displays a heavy Japanese influence with a frame highly suggestive of Shinto shrine arches and a hinomaru center. This stand was crafted to hold three swords and has a rear fixture for wall mount as well as a folding easel stand for table top display. It stands about 27.5 inches high when tilted on the easel stand...

This is about as good as a collector can hope for in a second class Iron Cross.Beautiful uncleaned look with no damage. Magnetic center core has a perfect halo along the silver border. The ribbon was neatly sewn shuy at the top all those years ago and is perfect with a gentle toning to the white field. The ring is marked GU800. I periodically see rings marked just 800 but it is a real treat to find one with a hallmark as well...

A vintage First Australian Imperial Force (AIF) privately purchased World War I era pin in 9K yellow gold. This 1-5/8" long x 3/4" tall pin appears to have been privately commissioned, as it is 9K gold and it is a copy of the 1904 Type 2 Rising Sun medal, and was most likely produced as a wife/sweetheart pin...

Yes, you read the title correctly. This came from an advanced collection. I am not in a hurry to sell this and mostly listed this to share it with some of my regular customers that I consider friends. The bottom text reads "Spare parts for boiling water pump". I believe this was off of a parts locker or cabinet meant for boiler repair but I guess this could also be for a water pump; Hard to tell with my imperfect grasp of the German language...

Very clean example. No rust or nicks on blade. Scabbard is in excellent shape with very little wear. Tang is navy proofed with the anchor stamp. Fuchi, tsuba and seppa are all matching and marked with a 5. A nice touch as this indicates all parts have stayed together over time. Not a fancy example but certainly an honest and very clean representative piece.

Nice Southern Cross of Honor. Looks like it was named to GEO W MARTIN but was scratched up somewhere along the way (No doubt some damned yankee!) Nice example rigged up for a button hole.

This lighter seems to be to well finished to be catagorized as "Trench Art". The symmetry and finish suggest commercial work to be sold to patriotic citizens and soldiers. The subject also suggests that it may be post Spanish American thru WWI. The Federal shield and Eagle are of that period. A nice quality addition to any military or lighter collection. Either an intended thumb rest in the center of the eagle or a slight dent. 2.2" to top of spark wheel, 1.5" wide.

Very attractive Japanese officer dress sword with blade presentation. I can't make it all out but I believe to an officer of the 35 Infantry. I have seen such a presentation before attributed to a military school. The Mon (Or family crest) is the Mandarin Orange. One branch of the Matsudaira family used a similar crest and the Ii family used a few variations...

Here is a unique offering. First there is a photo of a well fed Confederate veteran. While the grouping came out of Richmond, Virginia, I unfortunately do not know who this fellow is. Included are three Confederate veteran medals, all of which can be seen on our man's chest in the photograph. The first is the standard UCV Southern Cross of Honor. Looks great but is minus the pin on the reverse. Second is a 1907 U.C.V. medal from Richmond. The front has a dedication to Jefferson Davis...

Historically important binoculars from LZ127 which was the airship Graf Zeppelin. Power marking is 8x25 and the L.Z.127 markings are an exact match to the power markings. Absolutely real, authentic memento from the most famous airship ever to not explode in New Jersey. Shows significant wear as per images and most of the leather covering is gone to time. The optics look clear enough but the focus dial on one side does not turn. I am not a big binocular guy so I don't know why...
