(S47) A Luftwaffe Ground Combat Badge being the later war type dating from the 1944/45 period. This example is the first I have seen where they have put the rivet in and stippled it to match the feathers. This is the type that was war economy, where the early war examples had a bronze brass over eagle held by a single rivet attached to the badge. The badge therefore now, is of one piece construction with a separately applied hinge and hook and large dome rivet to the reverse. The badge is in very good condition and was given to the replacement luftwaffe army who did army combat duties and as such, they got the badge for the same criteria as the army counterparts.

Attributed to the firm of Deumer, this award is mounted onto army green backing cloth with a zinc back plate and then a secondary piece of cloth glued over this. The shield is of zinc construction and retains some of its original aluminim finish, although this has streaked as can be seen from the scan. Very nice and scarce shield to find, less than 10,000 were issued, although more were manufactured. This one has been pinned on a display board at some time and may well have come from a Deumer manufacturing board. GBP £375.00 (UK Pounds)

(S122) A German Arbeitsbuch to a woman called Frau Ludmilla Furst. The book is inscribed as such, although she changes her name by marriage to Rath. The book is filled out with employment from 1939, though the record goes back to 1927. The book has been partially de-nazified. With it comes a photograph of a man and woman, just got married, leaving the church. Then there are four felpost letters with one containing two postcards of naked women, one of which is a statue of Eve being seduced by the snake.

The box is constructed in the traditional way with a wooden outer case encompassing a card box with the matches. There are striker plates on both sides of the wooden outer case. On the box lid, it shows the Finnish SS volunteer battalion badge in colour. It is a nice proper rendition. The box is in very nice condition and could possibly be used in an emergency as a regular matchbox. Picked up in Estonia's capital of Tallin about 6 years ago. We cannot guarantee the age of manufacture of these, however, they are attractive and are interesting paraphernalia at an affordable price.GBP £10.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1044) A late war Cased Gold Wound Badge. The case is the vacuum seal type with the paper hinge and silk covering. Unfortunately, as is often the case, the paper has split, leaving just the silk holding the case together. The case has handling, wear, tear and scuffing as can be seen. Within the case, it is marked to the underside of the cut out to take the wound badge, 239 and 629KB. The wound badge is a mid to late war example maker marked 65.

This is only detectable with a magnifying glass and is a great age sign. GBP £325.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC646) An Air Defence Medal 2nd Class in its Case of Issue. The case has some staining to it, as can be seen from the scan and the paper hinge is split, although the cloth card hinge cover is intact. The grey case has in black letters printed, the awards designation to the lid. The case appears to have been repaired to the front on the top. Inside the case, we have a mouse grey paper liner stuck in with two compartments, one side for the medal and the other for the ribbon. The ribbon for the award is nice and clean. The medal is the thicker zinc type and is of standard quality and construction. There is no makers mark to the award and the award is unmounted. Priced for condition. GBP £99.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC651) A Nice Early Issue War Merit Cross 2nd Class With Swords. The cross is the Earlier brass type with the eye ring separately soldered to the award. Over the years, someone has polished the award, giving it a nice caramel colour. The award has also been at some time, dropped as the bottom arm is slightly bashed.

(MC660) A Mother's Cross in Gold being the 16th Dezember type. The cross is in near mint condition, apart from an enamel fault to the centre when it was manufactured.

The paper packet is maker marked Lind & Meihrer to the base on the reverse and has the award's designation printed to the front. The bronze cross which is in near mint condition, is still wrapped in its original tissue, with its original clean ribbon affixed to the cross but unsewn up. It would appear that this item, although issued, was put in a drawer as the mother may well have qualified for the silver at the same time, and not used the bronze one at all, this is just supposition on my part. Superb that it survived in this amazing condition. GBP £65.00 (UK Pounds)

(R339) A nice and scarce to find NSDAP party membership card to Johann Spiesberger, Party members number 7802416 who was born on 30.9.1904 and the card dates from 1940- through to 1945. There are some stamps and the card is in very good condition. GBP £125.00 (UK Pounds)

(R392) A Bronze 2nd Class Medal of Liberty showing to the centre, the Finnish lion holding a sword.

The award was also open to foreign troops who served in Finland and is therefore, sometimes encountered in British and German medal groups. Given for acts of bravery, the award is held in high esteem in Finland. GBP £12.50 (UK Pounds)

(R425) A Nice Finnish Campaign Ring for the Petsamo area, showing as the central design, the reindeer, the lettering Petsamo and the date 1941-42. The ring is of bronze/brass metal and has the internal diameter of approximately 21 mm. A nice item to acquire. GBP £55.00 (UK Pounds)

(R441) A Paratrooper's Badge being a mid to late war example, with a gilded eagle held onto a wreath by two domed rivets. There is no maker's mark to the badge and the badge appears to have been used and bashed in service, resulting in the wreath being more oval in shape and the hook being broken off. The eagle has also been glued back to the wreath, but this would clean off. Priced for all these points. Ideal for display as is. GBP £195.00 (UK Pounds)

(R444) A German Reichskarte that is in reasonable condition, with its outer cover that is used and worn. The approximate size when unfolded is 1.60 m by 120 m high.

The iron core has most of its paint finish intact but there is some minor rusting to the corners of the core. The ribbon loop on this example is maker marked 86 or 98 depending on how you want to view it, I feel the cross though is a Rudolf Souval, at 98. The cross comes with a nice piece of original ribbon and is in very nice overall condition. GBP £110.00 (UK Pounds)

(S95) A Nice example of a Near Mint German Cross in Cloth in Gold, for the Army. The cross consists really of a breast star with the cross referring to the swastika. The cross has not been mounted or worn and is complete with its original paper backing to the reverse. The gilded wreath has the fault at the top part of the 9. All the threads are relatively bright and clean for its condition. Becoming exceedingly hard to find. These crosses were worn on the combat tunic by many soldiers who didn't like to wear their metal counterpart. This was an easier wearing option, given the metal ones are very chunky. Also, the metal ones had a habit of being worn in confined spaces, the swastika could be chipped or dinged, and the badge could be caught on the pocket, which was not a good look, hence the popularity of these.

The 52 page book, which is in A4 size, has many many illustrations of dog tags, and other items, as well as drawings of tags. A very informative book on the subject, well written and well researched. My understanding is it is of limited printing, which has only just been assigned and ISBN number and only just started to be registered.

(MEDAL-CASES) Over the years we have had many collectors and dealers ask if we can supply replacement boxes and award cases for their medals. Also, others have asked what the best method of storage is for their investment. We have been approached by several suppliers of replacement cases, unfortunately, we have found the cases to be either of poor quality or priced far too highly, or both. However, one of the worlds leading suppliers of Third Reich Replacement Orders, medals and badge cases makers has recently got in touch with us and has offered to supply us with their products. We have found these examples to be of good quality and affordable. These cases offer real value for money, as not only do they protect your investment, but also show off the award to its best and the cases highly replicate the original award cases. This makes for a cracking display, they are good for storage and movement into the bargain. With some original cases costing several hundreds of pounds this means adding a case can be affordable, as well as practical. For more details please click on the image on the left
