Great looking shoulder board for German Lieutenant General. Very rich gold and silver Russial braid with red backing. One third from the top is a large single pip (About 23mm wide) indicating the rank above General Major. The pip shows gentle age wear and the red backing has one tiny moth nip about 1x2mm (See last image). This is very tiny and does almost nothing in detracting from this great looking shoulder board. If only it could talk. Nice item.

He had a knack for being successful while minimizing casualties which made him universally popular. While he is famous as a raider he did also fight in some conventional engagements including the Battle of Jutland...

Fine Qing Dynasty glass archer’s ring emulating white jade. Glass archer’s rings are much rarer than jade one’s, given the fragility of the material. There are two “fleabite” sized chips noted in second enlargement and scale is noted in metric in the last.

These officer's bladed sword sticks were used from pre-revolutionary war through the war of 1812 as a means of back up defense when one ought to have been unarmed. This blade type was introduced in 1796 replacing the earlier 1786 pattern. It was similar to its predecessor in having a spadroon style form ( three hollow surfaces coming to a slender point ). Excellent antique condition with some black rust and a fine patina overall. 35 1/2" long overall, blade is 27" long...

Mysterious bronze handled knife with iron blade from Cambodia. Very quirky “dragon” handled knife with original bronze sheath bindings, this could possibly be a type of early “meed mor” (Thai magic knife), but to be honest I cannot find any references to this design and style although the pommel has an uncanny resemblance to “Knife with Dragon-Headed Handle, Ordos Type, 14th cent” in the Harvard Art Museum- just google this...

Very nice dress bayonet by Eickhorn. This wood grip variation is fairly scarce and were meant to simulate stag horn grips. Overall it is an interesting look. The grips are in great shape and the only condition issue I find is some very minor freckling on an otherwise beautiful, mirror bright blade. This freckling is subtle enough it was difficult to even capture in photograph but after trying repeatedly I did get some images where it shows...

Very nice pair of leather shin guards for horseback riding. These are typical of the type that Japanese officer's would wear and sure enough, each piece has written inside "Second Lieutenant of Infantry Nishimura Katsujiro in very nice, clear writing. Named gear is always fun and these would look superb with an appropriate uniform. Condition is terrific throughout with only the mildest signs of age and use. Straps and buckles are all present and leather is soft, supple and nicely toned...

Very cool plaque given "To General Harold K. Johnson, Chief of Staff United States Army from 1st Air Cavalry Division Artillery On The Occasion of Christmas 1965". Nice central metal map of Vietnam. 11 DI crests around the border are all in nice shape except one which is missing one post causing it to swivel which is sort of nice because it shows how they were mounted; Mainly direct mounted instead of having the posts broken off and the crest glued to the wood...

ca 1810. Figure of Napoleon pointing to England. Finger he is pointing with has last digit missing. Top of clock is spelter. Bottom is ormulu over slabs of marble. This is all housed in a toile base. Closk brass works are French, seems original and works on a silk thread (pendulum). The bell emits a tiny and strike--one clock hand is missing. I think this clock is period Napoleon. I believe it was produced as cheap as possible to appeal to the masses--hence marble slabs instead of solid marble...

Engraved Bavarian sword by Eickhorn. I believe this short model (Just over 70cm end to end) is intended for use by police. This is an early Imperial German example with the early back to back squirrel Eickhorn logo. The blade is very nice with no nicks or plating issues and only very minor light spotting here and there due to age. Both sides of the blade are engraved with the Bavarian "In Treue Fest" motto (In true service). Also engraved is the distributor J.M. PAUSCHINGER NURNBERG. In later sw...

An original M1871 helmet worn by a Trooper of the 6th Dragoon Guards, (Carabiniers). Complete, missing only the original nut that holds the horse hair plume in place. Shows modest wear from use and age with small dents and surface abrasion. The leather backing on the chin strap is unstitched and the original liner is very dry with a crazed surface. (As shown) A handsome addition to any military collection.

Quite respectable WWII Japanese Type 95 NCO sword. Scabbard does show honest age wear to the original paint. The blade has some dark areas but much of what is shown in the attached images is dried cosmoline. Sword and scabbard have matching numbers 76707 and handle has the expected arsenal stamps. Nice original example priced right for someone who wants a representative piece.
