Really nice set of pink panzer oberst shoulder boards. Oberst is equivalent to a Colonel. Both boards are slip on variety and show no damage but gentle signs of age that should be expected. The buttons are an extra bonus. Gilt pips are very nicely sunk in on both sides. There is a hole on each board central to the two pips. Undoubtedly the fellow was a Oberstleutnant (Lieutenant Colonel) promoted and had to reconfigure his pips. I like this and it sort of adds another layer of personality...

This is not a minty piece but is just how I like it. Early blade marged M3 Camillus combat knife dated 1943. The handle is cracked along each rib as these tend to do. It looks fine but wiggles with finger pushing. The blade shows solid wear and old sharpening. M6 paratrooper scabbard is also dated 1943 and shows wear similar to the knife. Nothing is broken on the scabbard but it definitely has its share of scuffs. I also really like this bootlace thing going on at the end...

This document is an affidavit stating that this soldier served in the Continental Army during the revolution. Basically it states that John Pratt of Dublin, county of Cheshire in New Hampshire served in the last three years of the war. It is signed by what looks like Joseph Atherton. After the signature this fellow states that at the time of enlistment Pratt lived in another town but I can't quite make it out...

Beautiful table medal believed to be Belgian. This commemorates victory over Nazi Germany with the date of May 5 1945. Front shows a lion tearing up a swastika. The reverse shows a lady breaking the chains of oppression or occupation. Gorgeous, tasteful medal measuring 6cm wide.
Great looking American WWI Victory medal. Nice and clean with five bars. Montdidier-Noyon, Aisne-Marne,St Mihiel, Meuse Argonne and Defensive Sector. Some nerds can tell what unit it was by the bar combination. I am not one of those but I do believe the Montdidier-Noyon bar is a scarce one. Great looking medal offered just in time for the 100th anniversary.
