NEW ITEMS ADDED THIS WEEK


(JT2) A nice and rare to acquire Post War Souval 1939 Grand Cross of the Iron Cross in a hard case of issue. The cross has a non-magnetic centre, and being of very nice quality and construction, but with the low swastika as is often found on his items. The cross is marked "800" to the back of the frame under the eye ring. which dates it from the earlyer 1940's to late 1940s, I believe. The frame is nicely silvered and well finished and burnished . The loop is doubled ended and is "800" silver marked also. The Post war case is a two piece steel hinged case, utilising the war time pattern in red with a gold blocked Eagle to its lid, with a non- magnetic press stud. To the underside of the lid you have the makers name of Rodulf Souval, etc. The ribbon on this example is in my opinion the original war time. It is the rayon type that does not glow, nore melts with heat and measures 27 cm approx . Very hard to find. Super Rare item Originals cost well over £30,000.00 Plus. This is a bargin for such an early historical item SORRY I AM ON HOLD £1999.00 (UK Pounds)

(S1203) An Iron Cross 2nd Class by the well known maker C E Juncker. The ribbon ring is marked what appears to be 935 for the German silver content. Other than this I cannot see any further markings on the cross. The cross retains a high percentage of its original paint finish, although there are a couple of minor spots. The cross has the criss cross pattern to the inner frame, and so is identifiable as a Juncker cross. GBP £350.00 (UK Pounds)

(S1248) A Silver Mother's Cross in Very Nice Condition. The award retains some of the original laquer which is peeling in places from the front. There is no enamel damage.

The cross itself has lost a lot of its silvering but is still a nice example. Priced according to condition and construction GBP £110.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1503) An Iron Cross 2nd Class by the maker 65. The cross retains much of its original finish, both to the frame and the centre, though the cross appears to have been used and worn.

(CS1634) A Very Rare German Memelland Medal for 1939. This was the last flower war and as such, only approximately 40,00 of these were made and issued.

The cufftitle is bordered at both the top and bottom edges with interwoven, vertically stitched, silvery/grey cotton thread. The cufftitle has the typical "salt & pepper" pattern reverse.The letters are very clear. A scarce piece of very desirable SS cloth. The division proved itself with a good reputation for a later numbered SS unit. The only downside being there is a piece of wear and a nick out off the cuffband on the front of one of ends. Other than this, it would have been classed as very good condition GBP £750.00 (UK Pounds)

(R433) A 1st Class German Eagle Order Neck Decoration, maker marked No. 21 and silver hallmarked 900. The award is in very good condition, although there is some enamel cracking, which is to be expected for its age.

(S1266) A German Army Cap Eagle that has had all three pins broken, where it was removed from a cap or some such item. The eagle is maker marked to the reverse L.Gu.S and dated 1939.

(T16) A German Luftwaffe Pilot Observer's Badge, maker marked BSW. The badge is the mid war zinc variety and is in very good condition. The swastika has the usual BSW fault with the touching claw to the arm of the swastika. The eagle appears to have had either its rivets tighttened, or soldered or repaired, to stop it wobbling. However, this is hardly detectable unless looking down the top and not from the front. Though the gilt wreath shows no heat marks whatsoever. I think if it was done, it was done when factory fitted. Either way, still a nice rare badge, not often encountered. Priced for condition. GBP £750.00 (UK Pounds)

(T171) A Cased Eastern People's Award 1st Class in Silver with swords. Although the award has toned silver, there does appear to be traces of gold to it. I feel this is more of a lacquer than gilding, but the pin, hinge and hook are also gold in colour. The emblem however, on the lid, is silver. If the award was a gold one, obviously it would be worth more, so we have priced it as a silver. GBP £275.00 (UK Pounds)

(T172) 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.

None of these have been off the board since they were put on them in the late 1945 period. A superb display.
