Nice set of WWI tent stakes and pegs. Excellent condition for their age as per photos. The only real damage I find is a small hole in the bag at the side of one of the buckles (Image 7). The bag has some marking on the inside of the flap but very faded (Image 2). Looks like the original rope. I haven't pitched a tent since Boy Scouts so I have no idea what the difference between a peg and a stake is but there are three of one and two of the other. Nice original set of equipment.

Very attractive 1st Class Iron Cross. Excellent condition as per attached images. The catch is bent down a little bit and I don't really see a reason to bend it back up (If it isn't broke don't fix it). Very pleasant convex shape can be seen in images 5 and 6. Images 2 and 3 are with and without flash respectively. The box is also a wonderful example with an embossed (Not just painted) iron cross on the top center. The push button catch works well and the leatherette covering shows minimal wear...

Two place 1914 Iron Cross medal bar with matching ribbon bar. The second medal is Hindenburg Cross. The Iron Cross is a real nice example with very pleasant toning and an overall look just the way we like them. The red stripe on the Hindenburg is a bit faded and there is also a bit of red staining. Perhaps the poor guy got shot in his dress uniform? Otherwise the ribbons are structurally in good shape with no fraying and a very nicely done wrap job...

Small plaque with profile bust of Helmuth James Graf von Moltke. Moltke was a very forward thinking Field Marshall. At the top of this piece is a famous quote of his "Erst Wagen Dann Wagen" the meaning of which translates to "First you leap". His main theory being that one should attack strongly but never to plan to deeply past the point where contact is made. Since there are simply too many possibilities and varying factors it does no good to over plan to far into the future of a conflict...

Wonderfully made naval cannon made from wood from the U.S Frigate Constitution. This frigate, of course, was famous for some very famous successes against highly skilled British ships in the war of 1812. When the ship was overhauled in 1927 the old wood was made into souvenirs and sold to the public (Imagine that happening today?)...

Very nice 1914 Iron Sross 2nd class. Ring is hallmarked M . Condition of the medal is top notch and just where collectors like to see it; Very clean, undamaged and smooth but just enough very gentle aging where it is obviously real and with some personality. Nice, crisp black core and nicely toned silver frame. Original ribbon nicely folded. These have long been undervalued and are becoming a hot item with the hundredth anniversary of WWI. Top notch example of a classic medal.

These officer's bladed sword sticks were used from pre-revolutionary war through the war of 1812 as a means of back up defense when one ought to have been unarmed. This blade type was introduced in 1796 replacing the earlier 1786 pattern. It was similar to its predecessor in having a spadroon style form ( three hollow surfaces coming to a slender point ). Excellent antique condition with some black rust and a fine patina overall. 35 1/2" long overall, blade is 27" long...
