(P588) A Mid to Late war Russian Front Medal by the maker 19. The award is the lacquered zinc example with the chemically blackened centre. This has retained approximately 85% of its original finish as can be seen from the scan. It is nice to find a combat award by the maker 19, as this maker is mostly attributed with political awards, namely part service crosses, so it is unusual to find. In very good condition SORRY I AM SOLDGBP 35.00 (UK Pounds)

(R43) A German/Finnish 1941-44 Travelling Badge for the border troops who served on the border between Norway, Finland and Russia. This badge shows the map of that area, showing the old frontier between Russia Finland and Norway, where these troops pushed on to try and capture Murmansk from the Russians. This was a commemorative badge for them. The badge also shows the name Petsamo. Scarce and hard badge to find. GBP 125.00 (UK Pounds)

(R69) An Iron Cross 2nd Class for 1939. The cross is an unmarked example that has heavily oxidised and toned, especially the frame. There are a few miniscule rust marks, as can be seen from the scan. Other than this, the cross would have been near mint. Priced for condition. GBP 90.00 (UK Pounds)

(R93) A well used and worn NSDAP Party Badge that has got a nasty chip to the enamel on the P of DAP to the base. The rest of the badge shows wear and tear, but the badge is a nice Early issue, being pre-1933 and maker marked P Meybauer, Berlin. It is a shame the badge is so damaged, as this is a maker not often found. But the marks to it are a big plus. Undamaged, this would fetch double the price. Priced for condition. SORRY I AM SOLDGBP 50.00 (UK Pounds)

(S175) An Unusual Item being a disposable Plastic Sports Day Cup, of red celluloid plastic. These type of cups were used at many events from sports days to other impromptu gatherings and consist of the red celluloid, with a black swastika on a white roundel, with a card base. Obviously, these were for one use only and so it is quite surprising it has survived thus far. A nice unusual talking point. It would be good for film prop display, etc. We only have a couple left GBP 15.00 (UK Pounds)

(S215) A well used German WWII Air Defence Luftschulz Helmet that has the Luftschulz Decal about 80% intact. The helmet is stamped 547, with possibly a 2 in front of this, but it is hard to see and Q60. It has the blue paint reasonably well intact, but the helmet appears to be used and worn as they are cinder burns to the top of it. To the inside, it is complete with its liner, but this has split where the central cord ties it all together. The chin strap is complete, but again strained and the leather is fragile. It is size marked 56 to the leather. All the rivets are intact and it holds the liner in place. A nice example of one of these Luftschulz helmets, for air defence and flak gunner use etc. This is the equivalent of the English ARP. GBP 175.00 (UK Pounds)

The badge retains virtually all of it's finish to the front and the reverse has a ball hinge and countersunk hook, all features associated with the maker RK. The badge however is an unmarked example and the hinge appears to have had a factory repair. Scarce to find in this condition. A very nice badge. The badge was part of a group of items picked up by a British Army Officer who was in command of a bren gun team who won the Military Cross. This is one of the last items he had. GBP 125.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS971) A Document Group of Two to A Hans Muthel who was a civilian employee of the German army in the Hamburg area. The first citation is for the cross of honour with swords and this was dated 21st July 1935 and signed by a police official. The second award is for the war merit cross 2nd class without swords, but it is the rare military issue to a civilian employee, issued in Hamburg on behalf of a general der infanterie. This is the A5 size and shows that it has been folded at some point, but not badly. Both citations are in very good condition with the war merit cross one rating as rare. GBP 75.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1090) A Destroyer Badge in Nice condition by the well known maker S.H.u.Co. The badge is complete with its top hook and retains a fair proportion of its original finish.

(M737) A Nice Finnish Travelling Badge from the Pre-WWII period. The badge shows a house with a green hill with a lake to the front and the wording Aulanko to it. The badge has no enamel damage to it. The badge amongst many others in this period, were manufactured firstly for tourist pieces and secondly for the military as souveniers so that they can build up a collection for the places they have been to. This one is for the town of Aulanko and this type has been noted on some of the German watch fobs. There is no enamel damage. Quite scarce to find. These badges have been rising in value quite considerably of late, with many people starting to have interest in the arctic war of 1940-1945. GBP 35.00 (UK Pounds)

(MB134) A rare to find Werkschutz Breast Eagle/Gorget for 'Factory-Protection' Police The award is a late war issue in painted zinc, this is marked 'Hermann Aurich,Dresden'.

(MB255) A German Waffen SS Vehicle Number Plate being a tin plate with black and white paint sprayed to it. The plate has gone rusty in places and the rust if condusive with the spray painting. The plate is numbered SS411175, which puts it into one of the divisions numbered from 12 onwards. The overall size of this plate is 13" by 8". GBP 695.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC24) A Silver Mother's Cross in Very Nice condition. The cross has no enamel damage. The ribbon is in used but good condition being unsewn up. The cross is of standard construction with the 16 Dezember engraved to the reverse. This was part of a group picked up by someone who was obviously in charge of de-nazification or had light fingers!GBP 55.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC51) An Eastern Peoples 2nd Class Medal in Silver With Swords. This is a standard textbook example manufactured by the maker 100 and marked as such on the medal loop. The medal is silver plated over base zinc and as such, these awards were given to both Cossacks and Germans in these Russian units. The award is complete with its original pin fixing, which is sewn to the ribbon. Very nice to find. This was part of a group picked up by someone who was obviously in charge of de-nazification or had light fingers! GBP 100.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC336) A German U-Boat Soldbuch to a Lt. Alfons Jakobs, a member of the 19th U-boat flottille. The soldbuch is well filled out and dates from 1942-1944. It has a nice uniform photograph of the recipient stamped and affixed into it. This has gone over another photograph that was removed/replaced, but the counter stamps prove the photograph is the official one for this officer and was probably re-done because he has gone up in rank. With this comes the officer's driving licence, which shows him in civilian clothes and is dated for 1939. This is on the usual linen background and is quite worn and fragile. The book is also in used condition and has many entries, stamps etc to the 19th u-boat flottille and also has some heavily inked out entries. Nice to find. GBP 450.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC389) A Nice example of a Schwerin High Seas Fleet Badge. The badge was originally removed from a German u-boat man. The badge has had a half hearted attempt at de-nazification. The badge is an Early tombak example with all the features. The de-nazification on this isn't too noticeable, but we take this into account with the price. Ordinarily, the price would be around 450.00 for such a good quality early badge. GBP 250.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC584) A Nice example of an Adolf Hitler Plaque that has been mounted onto a walnut veneer. The plaque is about 5 inches by 3 inches and is of cast bronze. The wooden base if obviously large. To the base, it has the date 41 and Rotterdam. There is some other wording, but this has been scratched out when someone has cleaned the plaque up. The plaque shows the profile of Adolf Hitler, and it is a very well constructed bronze. Very nice condition. An unusual piece. GBP 250.00 (UK Pounds)

(R18) An Army Flak Badge being a mid to late war example, with a countersunk hinge and hook. The badge is similar in construction and design to the Hermann Aurich type but this one is marked LM within a circle. The badge as is often the case with these ones, shows a storage wear and tear that is often encountered on this particular maker. Of nice quality and construction, this type is a known maker though unidentified, who was in co-operation with the Aurich. Not often encountered these days. GBP 550.00 (UK Pounds)

(R19) A Nice example of a would be Mint German Army Officer's Dagger. The dagger was surrendered in May 1945 and has been hung up on a wall for many many years after this event. The downside to this is that the silver brockade has adversely affected the reverse crossguard where it has oxidised and pitted into the metal. The upside is that the dagger is near mint apart from this. The dagger has a nice white grip and has its original portee knot and straps that are backed in green velvet. The straps are nice and clean and show minimal wear and tear. The dagger still retains much of its original silvered finish. The dagger loops actually slide off the scabbard, showing the steel finish underneath. The blade which is nice and clean, has the maker's trademark of AES, a maker not often encountered. The dagger could probably do with a minor clean, but it is still in very nice condition. From the front, the dagger is as mint as you can get. A superb untouched example, worthy of any collection. Priced for pitting damage. GBP 450.00 (UK Pounds)

(R210) An SA Belt and Buckle. The buckle is a one piece brass stamping, with a static swastika. It has its U-clip soldered and the fangs of the T-clip are magnetic. The belt is a nice brown leather and the belt is as far as I can see, unmarked and measures 1.15 m approximately in length. The belt has a magnetic clip at the end and all the stitching is nice and complete. There do appear to be some marks to the leather, but it looks too far gone to make any sense, that or it is just my imagination. Apart from very limited wear, the belt and buckle are in very good condition and I think have been stored away Scarce to find. GBP 120.00 (UK Pounds)

(S109) A Nice example of a German 1914 Iron Cross 1st Class being manufactured for veterans in WWII who needed a replacement piece to wear on their tunics etc. The cross is identical to the WWII counterparts, being of a chunkier manufacture, with thicker arms. This particular example, although tarnished, is near mint, with the black paint being approximately 99% intact. The silver frame which is oxidised and burnished, has tarnished to the burnished edge, but the oxidised silver effect is still highly visible. This may well clean, but I wouldn't. Given for acts of bravery above and beyond the call of duty, the iron cross was an award even Hitler valued. GBP 199.00 (UK Pounds)

STILL AVAILABLE FROM TWO WEEKS BEFORE UPDATE

(S110) A well used U-Boat Badge for 1939 that is manufactured from Zinc. The badge has an un-cut out swastika and has the heart shaped chest.

(M844) A WWI Kuffbund Commemorative Medal complete with its original ribbon. The award is in nice order with virtually all of its original bronze finish. The award is often found on WWI medal groupings. This came from a German house clearance agent GBP 13.50 (UK Pounds)

(MC642) A Nice example of a Rounded 3 Iron Cross 2nd Class. The cross is the type that some people ascribe to the Deschler firm but I am not so sure, personally. The cross is a nice chunky example and is quite heavy. The cross is of nice magnetic three piece quality and construction and has only minor wear and tear. GBP 400.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC650) A Nice example of a 1957 Bar to the Iron Cross 2nd Class as re-issued to WWI veterans who have also qualified for the award in WWII. As this was instituted in 1957, and the qualifier had to have been in WWI, if we take his age then as being 18 when WWI finished, when he qualified for the re-issue award in 1957, he would have been 57 years old and to be re-activated in the military at that age, he would have had to have been a high ranking officer and as such, few of these would have been manufactured re-issued and awarded. GBP 95.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC664) A 1957 Iron Cross 1st Class being the official replacement type manufactured for veterans to wear post 1957 who served in the West German army. The cross is of three piece construction with a non-magnetic core. The cross retains all its black painted finish and dates I feel, from the late 1960's to the early 1970's period. Becoming hard to find, these crosses were issued less than their wartime counterparts. GBP 125.00 (UK Pounds)

(R307) A DRL Sport's Badge in Bronze. The badge is of nice quality and construction and it is the Ferd.Wagner marked example. With nice cut out, the badge is of good quality and construction. Given to Germans who achieved a set standard of physical sport. GBP 40.00 (UK Pounds)

(R394) A Bronze 2nd Class Medal of Liberty showing to the centre, the Finnish lion holding a sword. This award was given for bravery and with the date of 1939, it signifies the Finnish Winter War where Russia attacked Finland, and the Finns were able to hold their own, for a considerable period of time, causing the Russians much embarrassment. 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)

(R413) A WW2 Veteran's Cross for the NCO Association of Reservists. These crosses were instituted about 1976. It is estimated that only approximately only 200 were awarded, according to the book "The Orders, Decorations and Medals of Finland" by Jani Tiainen, where it shows an example on page 300. The cross is of white enamel with a soldier's head over the battlements as the centre device. The reverse is maker marked to the base of the cross. Nice condition. GBP 45.00 (UK Pounds)

(S27) A Single German Army Tropical Helmet Decal. The decal is of pressed brass metal, with the eagle and decal turning a bronze colour. To the reverse, the badge has all three pins intact and has the maker's mark for Assmann to the righthand side between the eagle's head and wing. Very nice to find. GBP 40.00 (UK Pounds)

(S55) A Rare example of a Cased Iron Cross 2nd Class for 1939, being in the LDO box. The cross is an LDO marked L/11 example that is in virtually mint pristine condition. The cross retains its frosted and burnished silver to the frame, with the black iron centre retaining virtually all of its paint finish. The cross is then housed in a standard LDO privately purchased award case that is of black leatherette overlaid on card with LDO stamped under the lid. The cross is then inlaid into the centre of the case onto a off white flocked base, with a cut out taking the cross. To the base of the case, it is also marked L/11. A superb example. GBP 450.00 (UK Pounds)

(S93) A used and worn German U-Boat Badge being one of the unidentified makers. The badge is of nice quality and construction, being manufactured from zinc base metal, with copper and gilt applied. The badge has been used and worn and is of a good quality striking. Very nice to find. GBP 225.00 (UK Pounds)

(S97) A Panzer German Cross in Gold being the Cloth version. The cross has the type with the wreath fault number 9 where the die wasn't cleaned out, after use properly. The badge is complete with its black paper backing and is mounted onto a dark black backing cloth to denote the SS panzer issue. Often worn by crews in tight spaces, panzers u-boat men and luftwaffe men were some of the most populer suuporters of this cloth variety. The black panzer ones are probably one of the harders to acquire and it is nice to be able to offer such a nice example that appears not to have been worn. GBP 650.00 (UK Pounds)

(S108) The Book "Orders, Decorations and Medals of the Third Reich" Vol 1. by David Littlejohn and C M Dodkin. The book is signed by one of the authors namely the late David Littlejohn.

(S191) A German Labour Book (Arbeitsbuch) to a KARL KAUFFMANN who was born in February 1890 and resided in Cologne.

(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
