The date 1941 shows it is for the continuation war as opposed to the the Winter War. GBP £12.50 (UK Pounds)

(R438) A Navy Blockade Runner's Badge with it's Miniature in near mint condition. The badge is a nice gun metal and silver plated example, being the type with the secondary dished centre to the reverse. This is commonly called the 2nd Pattern in some reference books.

OTTO PLACZEK BERLIN, second line, AUSF SCHWERIN BERLIN. The badge also has its small Miniature being the 9mm size, which is again in very nice condition.

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.

STILL AVAILABLE FROM TWO WEEKS BEFORE UPDATE

(NBB1)A German Navy Belt and Buckle. The blue canvas woven belt has several German Navy Badges affixed to it. The badges consist of a Minesweeper by the maker WH as marked on the pin. This is an Earlier war badge and retains virtually all of its original silver, gilt and oxidised finish. The U-Boat Badge, probably an FO example, this has faded to a light cream colour and although the badge is still mint, the finish has been absorbed as can be seen, this would therefore date the badge to 1943 period. A Coastal Artillary Badge, which maybe is an HA type, this has a countersunk hook and hinge and the finish has faded to a pale silver colour for the wreath, with the silver gun centre toning grey. The High Seas Fleet Badge, probably FO, this has the separate hinge and hook for the earlier style, which proabably dates the badge to around 1941. There is some oxidisation to both wing tips of the gilt wreath and the silver battle ship has turned a slate greay. The Blockade Runner's Badge being a Schwerin manufactured example, is of Earlier manufacturing quality of better metal, with a good finish. As is often the case, the bright silver eagle has tarnished, but nothing too bad. The Two Navy Cap Eagles are both in good bright condition, one appears to be a stick pin, the other has two pins. An Auxillary Cruiser Badge, probably by FO, of one piece construction, is in very nice condition with the gilt wreath going a pale yellow and the silver globe going a silver grey colour. An E-Boat Badge 2nd Pattern, by Schwerin, this is a mid 1943 example with a cut out swastika and deck flag. As is often the case with this badge, the wreath has gone a lemon yellow silverish colour, with the waves still being the oxidised gun metal and the boat a two toned silver. A Navy Croatian Legion Badge, this is the silver pressed type with a white enamelled anchor and a red enamelled chequer board. The enamel is all intact with no damage and the badge has a broad bladed pin fitted to the reverse, and I believe it to be a Croatian manufacturer. An Old Comrades 10 Year Stick Pin, consisting of an iron cross with crossed swords with a black enamelled cross and a red enamelled centre. The stick pin has been cut short. A Destroyer's Badge by SCHuCo, being a mid war example with still much finish left to the wreath, with the silver destroyer again with a lot of finish left.

Then , we have a Bronze Panzer Badge appears to be an unmarked example manufactured in about 1943 and is the daisy variation. Then finally is the belt buckle itself which is marked CTD1943. This retains about 75% of its original gilt finish to the front and a higher proportion to the reverse.

As is often the case, this example has the fluted silver pin that is of magnetic construction. The clasp is as stated, silver plate over the base zinc metal and has bubbled in places, but nothing too serious. Very hard to encounter now as few of these are turning up on the market place. GBP £1500.00 (UK Pounds)

(S37) An unusual Dutch Volunteer NSKK Badge showing a radial tyre with the wording Trouw to the top and a wolf's hook to the centre, flanked by a steel helmet and a downturned sword. The badge is of a bronze copper alloy and is very large being approximately 45 mm in diameter. I have often seen these badges that have have seen that isn't relic. Complete with pin fixing and hook to the reverse, I would say this is a badge been recovered in the East that have been dug up and are in relic condition. This is the first one I not often encountered in this condition. Very scarce to find with very few issued and even fewer in collections today.

The cross is also ringstamped, what appears to be the letters IK, but it is hard to read so I cannot be definite on this. Attached to the ribbon is a 1939 Award Bar to the iron cross 2nd class and this has 2 ½ prongs intact. The clasp is of nice quality and construction and is the silver plated type on good quality metal. Becoming hard to find. Priced though for the missing prongs. GBP £265.00 (UK Pounds)

This cross has not been used or worn and apart from some minor oxidisation, the cross is in Near Mint condition. Used and worn by luftwaffe servicemen in the tight confines of aircraft, the cloth version was a very popular alternative to the bulky metal badge. This version has the fault to the 9 and appears to be a Deschler wreath. GBP £595.00 (UK Pounds)

One of the first reference works to come out on the subject of German Medals, showing both the fronts and backs of most Political and civil awards. A must for any medal collector of political and civil awards. The inside on has had the brown paper cover removed so priced for this. GBP £45.00 (UK Pounds)

(S132) A Cased War Merit Cross 1st Class With Swords. The cross appears to be an unmarked No. 1 and may possibly be one from the Deschler hoard that was recently discovered. The cross has oxidised as can be seen from the scan, but still shows some of its frosted and burnished finish under the oxidisation. The cross is of standard construction with a separately applied hinge and hook. It appears to be of earlier metal. The case which is the two piece hinged type, opened by a press stud, has the emblem in silver block to the black lid. The press stud is magnetic as is the hinge. The case is a standard KB type. GBP £225.00 (UK Pounds)

(S148) A Nice Near Mint example of an unmounted RVD Kiew Arm Eagle. This is for the State Traffic Directorate. The eagle is complete with its original backing uncut, as the eagle has not been used or worn. Very nice to find.

(S187) A German and Italian Aircraft Identification Book, boasting that it is the only complete illustrated record. Printed by the firm of Hutchinsons, the book has had the dust cover ripped and taped along the spine. Other than this, the only other damage is where someone has stuck a label inside it, saying Ex-libris etc. The book has 164 drawings and illustrations and shows a high proportion of the German WWII aircraft. I believe the book to be made in about 1944. Scarce to find and an interesting booklet. GBP £10.00 (UK Pounds)

(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
