Very attractive framed photograph. Shows 12 men in full uniform. Caption attributes these gentleman to the 4th Battery of the 5th Field Artillery Regiment , Landau 1908. Even if discharged, fellows like this with heavy equipment experience were invariably called back to serve in WWI. No damage to the photograph (Please excuse the light reflection in my images). Frame shows evidence of light wear but is still very nice. Something is written on the back in pencil but I can't make it out...

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...

Nice, original WWII era German aiguillette. I believe with the red trim this should be for Red Cross (DRK). While I am sure of the age I am assuming on the Red Cross designation so would appreciate input.

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. The ribbon bar is a very good match with extre...
