Goodness, what a cool niche piece. This might not click with many collections but if odd aviation or Eastern European volunteer is of interest I don't know where one might ever find another example. This is an 835 silver hallmarked qualification badge for a Slovakian air force mechanic. A no doubter with a gorgeous uncleaned, untouched patina. Great item.

This is a rare medal with great history behind it. This commemorative war medal was instituted by Elector (Kurfürst) Wilhelm II on 14 March 1821 to recognize Hessian soldiers who took part in the second and final round of the Napoleonic Wars 1814-1815. Inscribed on the edge is "AUS EROBERTEM GESCHÜTZ" which translates to "From captured cannon", indicating that the metal used for this decoration was from a cannon captured at Waterloo...

First class iron cross box. This does need a little bit of tlc but mostly superficial. The upper front panel is a bit loose, some of the leatherette could be glued down and the thin fabric covering the hinge is frayed out. The first two are fixable by a spot of glue and the fabric should probably be trimmed away to make it unnoticeable since manyhave the hinge showing anyway. On the plus side, the hinge is in fine shape and the snap clasp works...

Very nice patriotic WWI pin featuring a very nicely executed miniature enamel blue max or Pour le Merite in silver colored wreath. Featured in profile in the center is Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and Kaiser Wilhelm. Probably Austrian as Franz Ferdinand is featured before the Wilhelm. A very cool miniature of one of the great military orders which, of course, was used by both Austria and Germany. Circular, measuring 2.5 cm in diameter. Have not seen this one before.

Extremely rare and extremely cool 3/4 sized 1914 Iron Cross Second Class. This extremely rare and extremely high quality private purchase medal has the feel and toning of silver. The ring is hallmarked with what looks like the crest of the firm Rothe & Neffe of Vienna. With my calipers I measure the wide of the end of the cross arms at just a hair under 18mm. On the regulation EKII, shown in the images for comparison purposes only, the arms measure 24mm at the end...

Lovely Imperial German WWI patriotic pin. This piece features a 1914 Iron Cross with the slogan GOTT MIT UNS on the three upper arms and a portrait of Kaiser Hindenburg in the center. The beaded suspension loop is finished off with a miniature 1914 Iron Cross ribbon. The reverse is DRGM marked. The cross is about 2.4cm wide and high and the ribbon is about 1.5cm wide. Very cool patriotic piece with a lot of personality.

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.

Very good looking WWI victory medal with ATLANTIC FLEET bar. Matching tone with the medal and nicely melted into the ribbon, the bar and the medal have clearly been together for the duration. Excellent condition medal and nice strong colors on the ribbon.

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.

Very attractive badge for 40 year faithful service in the Prusiian Railway. The badge is a perfectly toned silver body with similarly toned gold plating to the Prussian crown and the 40 plate. The reverse has the imperial German maker mark on reverse of the 40 plate reads JOH WAGNER & SOHN BERLIN. To the left of Berlin is the associated half moon and crown logo...

Nice wound badge and matching document. Document is in decent shape with the usual crease down the middle. For its age the corners are reasonably sharp and there are no tears or missing material. The last name looks like Kargelain. I can't make out the unit but it looks like it starts with "mg" so possibly a machine gunner? Dated October 5, 1918. The wound badge is very attractive example with nice raised details...

Lovely Imperial German four place stickpin. The first medal is a nice enamel 1914 iron cross but the prize in the row is the second medal which is a lovely Bavarian merit cross with very fine detail and nice blue enamel arms. The row is finished by a Hindenburg Cross and a black wound badge. Very nice lapel pin intended for wear by the recipient of these medals while in civilian clothes.

Interesting set of two Romanian WWII medals. The first is for the anti-communist crusade they were forced to join in 1941. The second is from when the first crusade failed and they were again forced to join the war against Germany. The pair makes for an interesting conversation point.

Very nice enamel cross for a veterans' organization member's 25 years of service. Really very nice enamel work. This is a good sized medal shown with a penny for size comparison. Just 2 or 3 mm shorter wingspan then a 1939 iron cross.
