THIRD REICH ARM SHIELDS OF WORLD WAR TWO

(CS976) A Cholm Arm Shield. This is a Nice clean example manufactured from a magnetic metal. The shield is the army version that appears to have been unworn and unused. The shield still retains much of its original lacquer although it is peeled on some of the high spots. The green backing cloth is nice and clean and has no mothing, although the nap of the cloth is a little thread bare. For an item over 70 odd years, that is very minor. The shield is then fixed through a magnetic backing plate by three prongs that are then folded over, and a secondary piece of cloth has been stuck over this. This is one of the best examples we have had in a long time. As fewer than 6,000 were issued, though more were given, it rates on the rareity with the German Cross in gold, in my opinion. GBP 2000.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1284) A Nice examploe of a German Army Narvik Arm Shield being a type that hasn't been associated with Deumer before, to my knowledge as it has the cut outs between the shoolder blades. The shield is in very nice condition and has all four pins attached. There is some minor oxidisation to the shield, as can be seen from the scan, but this will brush away quite easily. Very scarce to find. This type of shield on backing would cost well over 400 now. Priced for condition and also rareity. GBP 300.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1299) A Nice examploe of a German Army Narvik Arm Shield being a type that hasn't been associated with Deumer before, to my knowledge as it has the cut outs between the shoolder blades. The shield is in very nice condition and has all four pins attached. There is some minor oxidisation to the shield, as can be seen from the scan, but this will brush away quite easily. Very scarce to find. This type of shield on backing would cost well over 450 now. Priced for condition and also rareity. GBP 325.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC761) A German Naval Narvik Armshield that is in reasonable condition. The shield though zinc, still retains the gold, gilt colouring, although it has pulled it in, giving it a lemony colour tinge. The dark navy woollen cloth appears to show the fact that it has been cut from a tunic and there are some moth nips to the edge. There is also a zinc backplate and three of the four pins are still intact. Not a mint shield by any stretch of the imagination, but an actual used and worn example of the scarce naval type. It could tell a few tales. Scarce. GBP 325.00 (UK Pounds)

(T51) A German Army/Luftwaffe Narvik Armshield on a dark blue to black background. The shield is complete with its original magnetic back plate but there is no paper. The fourth pin is broken but still attached in the shield cloth. The other three prongs are nice and tight,. There is some minor rusting to the shield backing plate but nothing serious. To the front, the armshield is similar to the Deumer board ones because of the infills between the head and shoulders and I believe this is one of theirs. Becoming scarce with less than 10,000 issued, it is possible this si for either and army man who joined the navy, or an army man who went over the the panzers. Either way, a rare shield. GBP 325.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1282) A Nice Example of an unmounted and unworn Krim Arm Shield. The shield comes on a piece of board and has all four pins bent over and attached. The item was sold originally as a souvenir board probably by the firm of Deumer or one of the other Ludenscheid makers. The shield is non-magnetic and could be finished off and put onto a shield with backing cloth etc if anyone wished to do so. Priced for condition. GBP 110.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC764) A Demjansk Shield in pressed zinc. The shield is in fair condition and shows the seraph J with the triangular top. This is also the type with the curved propellor. The shield is a nice quality striking but over the years, has oxidised, with a fine zinc oxidisation showing. The shield is on its green army backing which in turn, has the zinc backing shield and green paper backing affixed. This is quite fragile on the edges, but still mostly intact over the shield backing plate. Nice to find. GBP 225.00 (UK Pounds)

(K911) A Nice example of a zinc Demjansk Shield. This is the type with the curved propellor and the seraph J found in the Forman Price Guide and attributed to Roger Bender (not this shield but this style), who has stated that he has had this shield type since the 1950's and was given it by his relative. There is much controversy over these shields by certain people who have said this type did not exist before 1980. I feel this conclusively proves the matter. The shield is of pressed zinc metal with a luftwaffe cloth backing that has a zinc shield fitted to that with the prongs of the shield bent over and then a paper backing affixed. The backing is in good condition but has come away in parts. All in all, a nice unusual shield and a good talking point. GBP 275.00 (UK Pounds)

(R31) A Nice example of a Kreta Cuff Band. The band is one of those that was found several years ago in a bale of them, and as such, has old storage marks and staining to it.
