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...

Very cool original WWI German stickpin with two Iron Crosses (1st and 2nd Class), a Hindenburg Cross and a Silver Wound Badge. While the whole medal row is just a bit over 2.5cm the detail is terrific right down to the beading on the arms of the crosses and the 1914 being quite crisp and clear if viewed through a magnifying glass. Great piece to add with a First Class Iron Cross.

Excellent example of KABAR Marine fighting knife. Most of the bluing remains on the blade. Stapled scabbard is likewise in excellent condition with staples still present. The reverse of the scabbard has the veteran's name painted on: Roy L. James JR. The same name is lightly impressed on the front but only really visible if the light shines on it just right. Overall a really nice knife with a cool personalization which is conveniently placed on the reverse where it is not overly obvious.

This is a very nice looking Austro-Hungarian badge from WWI. The front reads 1915 BELGRAD 3 ARMEE (Translation is obvious) and a landscape with significant landmarks. I am not sure of the exact purpose of this badge but it is high quality in both detail and composition (Tombak) and is good sized at 6cm x 3cm. The reverse has a very detailed maker mark reading: Entw. v. Rich. Assmann, Ausgef. v. Atelier Gurschner, Wien VII/2, Lindengasse 9. Very attractive WWI related badge at a bargain price.

Very nice 1915 dated M98/05 bayonet with sawback for combat engineer or pioneer troops. Maker marked Deutsche Maschinenfabrik A-G Duisburg on ricasso.

Spine a crown over 'W' over 15 representing manufacture during 1915 in the reign of Kaiser Wilhelm...

Kabar (Or KA-BAR) fighting knife with terrific overall look. Condition throughout shows gentle period wear consistent with theater used examples but no damage or mistreatment. The grip was a small crack on the section just before the pommel. This is unfortunately a common occurrence with these knives but there is no wiggle and not overly distracting. Blade is marked KA-BAR on one side and USN on the other. The scabbard is a nice, soft brown leather which is healthy a pliant...

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...

Very nice DAF unit flag. The town patch indicates it is from St Wendel Ost (Sankt Wendel). This town is just a bit north of Saarbrucken in the Saar region which is of course of great importance wo WWII history. Condition is overall excellent. There are a few small holes but this type of fabric almost encourages them with its loose weave. They are all tiny and really get lost in the size of the flag. The worst spot is the last photo...

Gorgeous Imperial German 1914 Iron Cross First Class. Jeweler quality with a nice convex vaulted shape. The center of the reverse is marked 900 silver and the patina throughout certainly backs this up. Lovely untouched cross with a great look would fit well into advanced collections.
