Interesting dog tag with what looks like some sort of battle damage. Must have been unpleasant for the fellow wearing it at the time. Probably 8th battery 161 Artillery regiment with 178 being the soldiers number. Interesting piece.

Very nice pair of 18 pounder shell casings showing very nicely done portraits of a French officer and wife (?).

Nice German trench art type sweetheart bracelet featuring 1914 Iron Cross. Bracelet is made out of a piece of a shell casing but well made with a hinge crisply working catch. Perhaps best of all is the catch plate which bears the engraving: S/L. SCHWESTER ZUR ERINNERUNG AN DEN FELDZUG 1914/15 HERBERT HEINMUTH which basically says this is a present for his sister commemorating the campaign of 1914 to 1915. Early on when war still seemed glorious and the young men were still innocent...

Very interesting paperweight that a lieutenant or one of his family members had made to celebrate his winning of the Iron Cross First Class. The EK1 was, of course, a prestigious valor award and earning this medal would likely be a highlight in a soldier's life. The bulk of this paperweight is the clear plastic composite in which we often see old coins or similar mementos suspended. On the bottom is what appears to be the newspaper announcement of the award given to Leutnant d...

Attractive American M1912 officer's cap. Nice clean cap with with good shape and a nice, period used look.

Also, from left to right along the lining and just under the logo is some separation from solid use (Image 5). U...
