(CS371) A Very Rare grouping of items to a German national who served with the Finnish armed forces between 1941-1944. The grouping consists of his Passport, Personal Diary, Finnish Service Book and Record Sheet. The name of the man is H Zimmermann and there is a photograph of him in Finnish army uniform with the rank of a company sergeant major. This is a very rare grouping to find as it doesn't often happen this way round, with mostly Finns serving in German units. Included in the grouping is his diary which goes up to 1944, where he went on leave to Berlin. His passport has him in scout uniform and his Finnish service record book shows him in civilian clothing. This is a superb grouping, worthy of further research, which would be quite a lengthy and interesting project, which should answer why he was where he was.

Peekhaus, Berlin to the lefthand side. The magnetic back plate shows what appears to be glue or melted plastic marks which appears to be where someone has stuck it to a board or something. These look like rust spots until you look at them under a glass. The clasp has a fluted magnetic pin with a nice countersunk hook and a cast in hinge. The backing plate is nice and tight and held in by four horizontal lugs. The clasp is in very good condition with most of it's original bronze intact. This has now turned a darkish bronze.

(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.

The badge is a textbook example of the Deumer style of pin, hinge and hook construction with the base having a solid swastika as previously mentioned and the circular retaining clip to the reverse as well as the broad hinge block. All in all, the award is a nice quality example of Deumer's work. It is quite a scarce badge to acquire.GBP 1250.00 (U K Pounds)

(L827) A Dutch NSB Serve and Endure Badge, in red and black enamel with an orange, white and blue central portion. The award is maker marked to the reverse STAMBOEK NO.

(N980) A Very Rare and seldom encountered German Saar Ring. The ring is in its original manucturer's Presentation Box in dark blue with the manufacturer's name of Fritz Mannheim Kaiserslautern in silver. The box is opened like a matchbox and has a blue flocking base. On the ring, it has Saardant 1935. On the inside, it also has Reichskommissar with a facsimile of his signature. Whether this is to rival the SS Honour Ring, I don't know. Also with this, comes the original presentation document which has the addition of being very nicely filled out. Dated for 1/3/35, the reverse has the issue date of 8/10/1935 stamped in red to it. A very rare set only ever seen once before. I Sent some pictures to David Littlejohn many years ago to use and he sent me a card back thanking me . GBP 750.00 (UK Pounds)

(P84) A Rare example of the Azad Hind Breast Star. The star has been the subject of confusion for many years. It is my belief that this is a post 1945 issue manufactured by the firm of Souval after the end of the war, but this is a private view of mine and not shared by the majority of dealers and collectors, (if you are of this view, you will get a very good bargain as these are in the region of `1500.00 !). The badge has a nice gilt central disc on an 8 pointed radiated star with a nice gilt tiger's head to the centre. The reverse has a nice pin fixing applied with a central disc affixed to the middle. The disc has no manufacturer's name as often is encountered on these awards. The star is slightly toned but still a superb example of a rare award. Priced as per my opinion, post 1945. GBP 300.00 (UK Pound)

(P610) An Imperial WWI Black Wound Badge being of Magnetic construction. The badge is a nice Early issue and retains much of its original black painted finish. Given for 1-2 wounds in combat for the German armed forces (not including the navy) in WWI. GBP 30.00 (UK Pounds)

(R118) An Iron Cross 2nd Class for 1939. The award is in virtually mint condition, with virtually all of its frosting and burnishing intact. The cross comes complete with its full length of original ribbon, which is nice to find nowadays. There is no splitting or cracking to the core. The cross looks like a 100 type manufacture, with the slightly smaller swastika etc. GBP 110.00 (UK Pounds)

(R119) A Bronze S A Sports Badge being the type marked for the Hauptstelle. The award is also maker marked by the well known firm of E.SCHNEIDER LUDENSCHEID and is a non magnetic example. The badge is also numbered 235049. Very good condition, with no real staining. The badge is slightly convexed. GBP 55.00 (UK Pounds)

(R156) A German Memorial Card to a Franz Seibold, being a member of the SS Totenkopf Regiment. The card shows him in his SS uniform with his skull collar patch wearing an iron cross 2nd class. It also says he is a member of the SS totenkopf division and holder of the iron cross 2nd class, the general assault badge and ost medal. He was killed in action on the 6th September 1943. I have managed to track him down on the German war graves commission and enclose a copy with the memorial card. Scarce to find, especially a verified one. GBP 75.00 (UK Pounds)

(R160) A Very Strange and unusual Paratrooper's Badge. The badge has a nice eagle riveted to what can only be described as a homemade or jeweller's made wreath. To the reverse, the badge has a jewellery type pin, hinge and hook fixing, with the eagle affixed by two flat domed rivets. The eagle itself is of a recognised pattern, with the third claw cut off as often seen on Juncker types. The eagle is a nice Early example. How and why this eagle has turned up like this, has yet to be discovered. Still, an interesting award. SORRY I AM ON HOLD GBP 495.00 (UK Pounds)

(R172) A German Press Photograph showing the Japanese and the Italian diplomats signing an agreement in the reichs chancellery. The photo is a Hoffmann press one. A rare piece of history. GBP 30.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS735) A nice Finnish Continuation War Regimental badge for the 46th Infantry Regiment. The badge has its screw back fixing and is in nice condition, showing a swastika and 3 coloured enamel`s to the centreof White, Black and Yellow . The badge is approx 13mm square and has minor wear and tear, GBP 90.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1131) A Nice example of an issued and awarded Iron Cross 1st Class. The cross comes with its original award Case and shows moderate wear and tear. There is no damage to the swastika or core. The frame in my opinion, has had a knock at the 6 0 clock righthand side on the corner, as there is a crack along the joint now. The frame most of its black finish, with the silver frame oxidising black in places. This would all probably clean if so wished, but as it has a nice overall look, I personally, would leave it alone. To the reverse, a third of the way down the pin at the widest poin, you have the No 65 stamped into it, for the well known firm of Klein and Quenzer. The hinge, pin and hook all work perfectly. The cross comes in its original domed award case that has an off-white silk under lid which is light beige flocked base cloth. To the underside of this, when lifted out, there is the well known impressed D & B mark, with the number 2957 stamped in. The box as stated, is the domed type, with a good working hinge and hook, which snaps shut when closed, holding the box nice and tight. The hinge and press stud are magnetic, and you have the outline of the cross in silver embossed to the lid. A very nice example to find. Priced for cracking. GBP 299.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1135) A WWI Imperial Iron Cross 1st Class for 1914. This cross is a non-magnetic example that is slightly dished and is constructed in the usual three piece manner. The award retains virtually all of its paint finish. The silvered frame shows frosting and burnishing under the tarnish. To the reverse, it has a standard imperial hinge, pin and hook fitting and I would suggest this is a privately purchased period piece of superior quality and constuction. GBP 175.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1138) A Nice Early Issue Iron Cross 2nd Class for 1939. The cross has a nice rattling centre encompassed by a two piece silver frame that shows much of its original frosted and burnished finish. The cross has the No 40 stamped into the ribbon ring. This is for the firm of Berg a& Nolte. The overall appearance of the cross puts it in the near mint category. A nice cross to acquire for the iron cross numbered collectors. GBP 110.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC582) A German magnetic pressed Jaeger Cap Badge that has a spring pin fixing to it and shows no signs of pins being fitted or removed. . The badge has also been sprayed green at some point, giving it a plastic look. This was sometimes done to merge it into the green camo caps that were worn by the mountain troops, to help go with the camouflage. Of nice quality and construction, the badge is quite hard to find nowadays. This example if non-maker marked. GBP 65.00 (UK Pounds)

(N20) A Small Finnish Watch fob type Badge showing the Finnish lion on a red enamelled shield soldered to a cross, with two further bars above. This appears to be a Finnish volunteers shield and was probably manufactured and made for the Finnish Winter War of 1939-45. To the reverse, it has the letters ALD stamped in.GPB 45.00 (UK Pounds)

(R398) A 2nd Class Finnish Order of the Medal of Liberty. The award was given to Finnish and German troops for acts of bravery in WWII where Finland, like many other axis countries, helped Germany in their invasion of the Soviet Union. The Finns joined Germany in this to reclaim their lands that were lost to them in the Winter War. A Nice award that was given for acts of bravery. The date 1941 shows it is for the continuation war as opposed to the the Winter War. GBP 12.50 (UK Pounds)

(S86) A Valve for what is believed to be a radio set in an armoured vehicle. The valve is well marked with the Wehrmachteigentum mark as well as Waffen Ampt stamped, dated 04/42 and RV2P800. The valve also has the maker's name of Volvo to the top. In very good condition. Somones has scratched onto it "ok", so I am assuming someone has tested it to see if it works. A superb talking point, and if your radio is missing one, this could be it! GBP 45.00 (UK Pounds)

(S281) A British Medal Group of 4, complete with its original card showing entitlement, Medal Ribbon Envelopes with Medal Ribbon, a Slip from the Royal Armoured Corps office, saying this is your original entitlement also.

The cap badge is of bi-metal construction with a king's crown and title scroll in bronze, with the Irish harp in silver. The old comrades badge has the title and battle honours in green enamel with a representation of the cap badge to the centre and shamrocks to the sides. A nice unusual set. In Very Good Condition. SORRY I AM SOLD GBP 30.00 (UK Pounds)

(S321) A NSDAP Collar Patch Pair being "NSDAP Kragenspiegel Reichsleitung for a Abschnittsleiter" Circa 1939. The patches consists of a dark pink moleskin material wrapped around a hessian backing cloth, being piped in yellow synthetic piping with a golden eagle and an oakleaf affixed to each patch.

(S337) A Cased Set of 6 German Spoons in a cutlery case with the maker's name embossed onto rose pink silk on the inside of the upper lid. There is also pink silk to the base, with 6 spoons, compartmented. Each of the spoons is in very good condition and has the maker's mark to the reverse of JUBST as well as the numbers 23 and 10 stamped into it. On each of the ends of the spoon, is a 22 mm size panzer badge that has been soldered neatly to the spoon. The soldering is old and appears to be lead or silver. Either way, it has been beautifully executed. It is my belief that the item was a wedding present to a panzer man or officer. Very stylish spoons. They could do with a mild clean, but they are in fantastic condition for their age. This type of individually manufactured item, is not often encountered. GBP 250.00 (UK Pounds)

(S347) A Very Nice example of an RS Tank Badge being the type with the wide bladed pin. This is the type with the rounded lettering and has a nice hook soldered onto a plate with is affixed to the reverse of the badge and you have a cut out lip plate to take the hinge. The badge appears to be a bronze example and has the usual die flaws accepted for all wartime Souval badges. A very Scarce example to find especially with this sturdier pin, hinge and hook fitting, not the normal needle pin fixing, as often found this is one of only a couple of types found with this pin fitting . GBP 295.00 (UK Pounds)

(S348) A Nice Early Police 8 Year Service Medal complete with its original blue ribbon and pin. The medal has oxidised but is the earlier nickel silver type.

In very good condition, the document has been folded twice and has wear, but it is great for its age, considering it is around 70+ years old. GBP 125.00 (UK Pounds)

(S352) A Very Nice Pair of Panzer Man's Collar Tabs and Eppaulettes. The Epps are for an officer in the 6th Company and have the gilt numerals affixed to two eppaulettes. The epps are fhte sew in types and are for the lowest army officer rank. The panzer tabs are black wool, piped in yellow with two magnetic skulls affixed with three pins to the centre of the tabs. The tabs appear to have been removed from a tunic as do the epps and are a matched grouping. Being piped in yellow for a member of the army, which makes them formerly a cavalry regiment, transfarred over to the panzer corps. Very rare to find. SORRY I AM ON HOLD GBP 650.00 (UK Pounds)

(S354) A 1957 Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross complete with its Ribbon, Case and Loop. The cross is the non magnetic type and is 800 silver marked at the base of the cross in the 6 oclock position. The silver loop is unmarked. The cross is of three piece construction with a non magnetic centre. The cross comes in its presentation case that is of modern manufacture with the rounded corners, white silk underlid and black cut out for the cross. In very nice condition and becoming hard to find. These have been manufactured throughout the decades, currently in England they are being manufactured with the 925 mark. This one having an 800 mark, probably dates it to before the 1980's, so relatively early one. GBP 450.00 (UK Pounds)

(S372) A Nice Early to mid war Russian Front Campaign Medal being the type with the silver plated edge and gun metal blued centre. The award is maker marked 88 to the ribbon loop. This award is of nice quality and construction and would have been one of the first to be award, dating it around 1942 for the campaign of 1941-42. GBP 50.00 (UK Pounds)

There is some minor enamel cracking to the badge as can be seen from the scan, but nothing too bad for a souvenir over 80 years old. GBP 50.00 (UK Pounds)

(S374) A Relic Condition German Luftwaffe Dagger. Though I use the term relic, this dagger isn't that bad. To start with, the blade has some minor rusting to it and it is slightly twisted when you look at it from the handle. You have aluminium fittings, with a white plastic handle, which is overlaid on a wood base. The wire grip is nice and complete. You then have a well used and faded portee wrapped around the handle, this has lost most of the silver wiring. The blade is marked WMW WAFFEN. You then have a steel scabbard that has again, rusted with alloy fittings affixed. To these, you have two parts of the luftwaffe strap, which are complete with their hooks, buckles and top fixings, but minus their overall joiner, which would tie the two straps together at the top. This dagger could really do with some tlc, with the rust removed, the blade polished and oiled and the scabbard sorted. With these daggers being priced at well over 500 now, this would be a great project for someone who has the time, skill and ability to clean it up. GBP 325.00 (UK Pounds)

(S378) A Paper Packet for an Iron Cross 2nd Class. The paper packet is in virtually unused condition and has the award's designation printed in black ink to the front and the maker's name to the reverse, again, printed in black in, being Jakob Bengel.

(MC570) A Nice example of the Earlier plated Russian Front Medal. The medal retains much of its original plated finish although it has bubbled a little as can be seen. This doesn't detract from the overall look of the medal. The award is ring stamped 100 and comes complete with its original ribbon. Very nice to find. GBP 45.00 (UK Pounds)

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 wasa gold one, obviously it would be worth more, so we have priced it as a silver. GBP 399.00 (UK Pounds)

(R15) A Bar to the Iron Cross 2nd Class being the scarce 1st pattern style with the scolloped out edges. The bar looks like the L/57 type, which I believe is Boerger and Co. as the eagle has the same head as the marked 2nd pattern examples I have had. The badge has two reverse pins going top to bottom and is on a nice piece of original ribbon. Also with this is an Iron Cross 2nd Class for 1914 being of nice quality and construction, with a magnetic centre and a silver frame, that is nicely soldered around it. The iron centre retains virtually all of its original black paint work and as such, the silver has toned a blackish colour matching the cross. The cross is maker marked N to the ribbon loop.

(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)

(R148) A Luftwaffe Other Ranks Breast Eagle in very good condition although there appears to be a glue stain to the bottom of the eagle swastika. There is also a pull snip there to check it is a woollen cloth, I presume, which you can tell, without testing it that way. The eagle is of nice embroidery and would possibly clean up removing this glue. I would suggest hot water, but it's down to the new owner. Priced of the staining etc. GBP 35.00 (UK Pounds)

(S342) A Museum Copy of the German Balloon Badge. This is almost indistinguishable from the original manufactured in the right pressed manner, with the detailing being actually better than the original. The award comes with the original style of pin and hook and apart from seeing one sold a few years ago, this is the first one I have seen in a long one, being a top notch copy. This is an ideal space filler for anyone who wishes to complete their army badge set, but doesn't want to pay the 3000+ for an accepted original. GBP 350.00 (UK Pounds)
