A New Book entitled "Extreme Relic Hunters Guide To German Dog Tags, (Erkennungsmarke)". by Dan Mackay. The book shows a great selection of dog tags, along with a comprehensive listing of these tags, their abbreviations, so that the lay person can translate 99% of the discs they have. 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. So for those who want a sneak preview, we can sell you copies at 15.00 a copy. Well worth the money. It is stated this is one of a continuing series. GBP 15.00 (UK Pounds)

(P581) We have had a couple of customers ask us about different replacement cases and how they stack up against the wartime ones. So I thought I would highlight a few showing the original next to the replacement. This one is for the bar to the iron cross 1st class. The case is modelled on the BH Mayer versiona and has a nice silver eagle embossed to the lid. The case is opened by a rectangular brass press stud with a brass hinge to the back of the case. The inside of the case has a white silk padded lid and black base velvet hard card inner with a cut out to take the pin, hinge and hook. This is set at a standard size, but if needed, you could take the base out with a pen knife and cut a little more out of the pin hole to accommodate slightly longer bars. The quality is reasonable and the case matches the original to compliment an award. This particular example is priced at GBP 20.00 (UK Pounds) each, so excellent value for money.
(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

(JC587) A Superb refurbished manual wind Wrist Watch as manufactured for pilots and air crew in the Soviet Union during the 1940-60 period.The watch is one of a very few that have been recently discovered in the Molnija watch factory in the former USSR these watches were modelled on the German Laco Luftwaffe watches. The watch has been rebuilt the old original movement with a new stainless steel case and mineral front glass fitted. The watch also benefits from a nice new leather strap and case to hold it. The movement has been cleaned and oiled when it was hand finished by the watch factory, a prestigious firm. The watch is in perfect working order and has a nice large face being approximately 48 mm wide, not including the crown winder. These are nice and chunky making it easy to wind the watch. Once wound, it won't need re-winding for 30 hours or so. As a manual wristwatch, it is accurage within 2 minutes over a 24 hour period which is to be expected. It is robust and strong in construction, but like all mechanical pieces, it should be treated with respect, as I feel the watch is an investment not just a working item. The watch is anti-magnetic and has an 18 jewelled movement. Very nice watch to find with a quality built movement. A very masculine design.
