Lovely brass bugle with embossed Prussian eagle. Below this eagle is maker name and date: C.W. MORITZ BERLIN 1914, making this now 100 years old. Bell is reinforced with a band of German silver trim with a decorative double groove on the upper piece. A brass ring is affixed to this silver band. Mouthpiece looks to be original to the bugle with a short chain that looks like it fixed to a ring near the stem that is now gone...

This is an interesting button hole pin reading "zur erinnerung an 1870" and a Maltese or Iron Cross in the center. I have actually seen a lot of fake enamel examples of this pin but didn't know there really was such a thing. This war was a rather quick French thumping. This is a painted example and I have included obverse photos both with and without flash to show the most detail possible. Cool item very reminiscent of later Third Reich membership pins.

Very nice Imperial Russian belt buckle. WWI vintage brass construction. These are most commonly found in very rough condition. This one still shows excellent detail right down to the crests on the eight tiny shields. Very nice example.

Gorgeous true ivory grips for Colt Official Police. Nice ivory grain throughout. The sticker shown was there from the estate it was brought from so I decided just to leave it. Screw grips nicely. Why not make your gun look really, really cool?

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...

A truly exceptional antique Chinese Qianlong period sword and one of the few genuine examples of this quality offered on the market in the past several years. This example dates from the mid 18th C. Qianlong period. The hilt is composed of the traditional style of vinuous carved gilded copper, or tombac, fittings. These fittings are beautiful carved and have dragons throughout. The blade is extraordinarily rare and represents one of two known in the world...

Great example of a walnut based P08 Luger magazine. Has the Erfurt Arsenal stamp but it a rare example of an unnumbered magazine. These are very desirable as they are sort of the O-type universal donor of Luger magazines. When one is missing a magazine for a numbered Luger this is the easy answer.

This is a lovely Belgian Cavalry saber. German blade makers were very popular with many different countries at the time and this was most certainly a private purchase. The size is very comparable to the U.S. model 1860 cavalry saber so I would date this right around the mid 19th century. The blade is engraved POUR LE ROI - ET LA PATRIE, French for "For King and Homeland". The lion rampant shown on both the blade engraving and the handle indicate this is Belgian...

Very nice early 1847 pattern Prussian Belt and buckle. This pattern was used through 1895. Attached sixth image shows the reverse with solder points. The buckle is quite attached to the leather so I decided not to remove it for photos. Rare to find with the proper leather belt. There is one scrunched edge on the leather as well as a small square from an old price sticker. Very nice, early belt.

Interesting army officer dagger from East Germany. Mint in original issue box with hangers and belt loop. Intriguingly, the warranty is still present offerring 12 month warranty from June 20 1990. The German Democratic Republic closed shop on October 3 1990. I would have had little confidence in this warranty. The serial number 085602 is on the ricasso of the dagger, the warranty and even the box, although a bit faded on box as per last attached image...

Nice pair of black widow Luger grips. Unfortunately someone along the way found the need to carve a "W" on one side. The other side has one small hit (See next to last photo). This is a shame because otherwise these grips are in great shape with no cracking or warping and nice, unworn checking. I hope "W" feels bad for what he did.

Absolutely cool, absolutely real silver panzer skull ring. Recently came out of a veteran's estate. Smallish size would fit well with a panzerman as they sought smaller guys for that job. The band is cut at the bottom which is typical of GI souvenir hunters in a hurry. The skull reference goes back to the Napoleonic era Hussars and was adopted by the tank arm as a continued tradition of elite mobile warfare units. This is a different animal to the SS skull so no unpleasant connections...

Really about as good as these have ever come. This Omani khanjar is fully mounted in gold. All of the metal mountings that are normally silver are in this case gold and carved and as detailed as the finest of this type of work. The belt is similar mounted in gold as well and the scabbard displays a beautiful pattern of all gold wires in the non-solid metal mounts. The handle is beautiful honey colored translucent material...

Also see the new Bob Hales Collection catalogue, a magisterial work and the best book on antique eastern arms and armor of the past decade. Our example remains in beautiful original condition, with the chiseling and detail remaining in excellent condition. From hundreds of ...
