NEW ITEMS ADDED THIS WEEK


(CS683) A mid war example of a Pilot's Badge. The badge is the standard BSW type with the usual flaw to the swastika. The badge shows some zinc plate bubbling to the reverse but nothing too serious. The badge is held to the zinc silver plated wreath by two fine domed rivets. The front of the award shows a nice blued eagle holding a silvered swastika on an oxidised silver wreath giving a very nice over all finish. Complete with it's nice pin and hinge fixing, the badge would grade as very good condition. The badge comes in the remains of its original card box of issue. The box is in fragile condition but still complete and has the awards designation printed in black ink to the front. Very rare combination to find. There is no makers mark to the box. GBP 650.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1674) A Superb Museum quality German Awake Standard Flag Cloth Banner. The banner is constructed in the original manner, with each letter hand stitched and edged in black thread onto a silk red cloth, edged with white, black and red wool tassels. To the centre, is a white circle edged in silver braid, with a black swastika also edged in silver. To the front, there are the words Deutschland Erwache and to the reverse, there is the same configuration, but now the words are Na. Soz. Deutschearbeiterpartie and to the base, Sturmabteilung. Again, all this is hand stitched and edged in black. To the top of the banner, there is the red protector that was there to protect it being rubbed on the original stnadard. It is mounted onto a pole and has the tassels also. Visually, this is a very close to the original example. The only major difference to this and the original is that the circular roundel is paper backed, so that the stitching could be laid well. With originals costing well over 25,000, the price of this is an absolute steal, looking so much like an original, for a fraction of the price. SORRY I AM ON HOLD GBP 550.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1675) A Nice Signed Adolf Hitler Postcard. The card is an Earlier example. According to the book "Leaders and Personalities of the Reich", the signature appears to be a 1936 style which is in keeping with the card, which again dates from that same period. Under glass examination, you can see original pen ink trail marks that it says to look at to discover whether a signature is a true signature and not just fascimale. The card is marked Verlag Photo-Harren, Nurnberg and then Nachdruck Verboten. The card is in exceptional condition and is unused. The ink on the signature has faded, but is not smudged, and can be seen clearly. It is the usual blue as often used by Hitler.
