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...

Terrific set of sand yellow DAK binoculars. Dialyt 10x50 Hensoldt Wetzlar are generally thought to be popular with tank commanders. The early serial number 21933 would put this set early in the war and very likely in the thick of the North Africa fighting with the Afrika Korps. Binoculars themselves are in great shape with near perfect paint. The leather strap is still there and actually quite strong but is significantly weathered to a solid state of "Ugly"...

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...

Wonderful set of four photos photos of Anzio Annie or the Anzio Express taken by and including American soldiers. These look to have been removed from an album. Needless to say, unpublished photos of such a historically important item such as this are a good find. Being 4 different photos these are priced to sell. Anzio Annie and Anzio Express are the two Krups built rail guns that were shelling American positions at the Anzio landing...

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.

A really great and rare example of a very early Moroccan nimcha. This type with the characteristic carved handle is usually made of shell and mother of pearl but all of the extant known pieces are mounted with this type of blade, a Genoan import blade of sturdy fighting proportions for the Algerian and North African corsairs that would have carried this sword in the late 17th-early 18th C...

Absolutely stunning set. Fascist Italian Brocade officer belt with sword hangers in original box. I believe this rig is for Public Safety Police which is probably one of those innocuous names for a sketchy organization. The buckle itself is a lovely gold gilt example featuring an eagle beneath a crown gripping a fasces and with a nicely rendered enamel House of Savoy crest on his belly...

HG Division panzer collar tab with skull. Exactly like all the others one sees on the internet...except that it is real. The Hermann Goering Division was of course the Reichsmarschall's pet unit; A Luftwaffe armored field division which was lavishly equipped with the finest equipment that could be found. Some moderate age wear that I think just makes it as cool as can be. See photos for condition. Great look all around.

Absolutely lovely sword. Nicely shaped handle is done in gold gilt with very attractive ribbed ivory grips. Very nicely done eagle with the Savoy crest on his belly and fasces in his claws...

Either a small medallion or a token (About 3.5cm diameter) featuring G.FELDMARSCHALL V. HINDENBURG. The reverse has the saying of Hindenburg's: "nicht nur durchhalten sondern gr√ľndlich siegen" or "Don't just persevere but thoroughly win". Now that is really a cool thought. Dated 1914 1915 1916 around the edges. The edge is stamped IMIT BRONCE which is easy enough to translate. Nice wartime propaganda type piece. I do honestly think that Hindenburg is a very underrated historical figure. He was ...
