BY RUSSIAN FRAUDSTER USING PAYPAL, WARNING TO COLLECTORS AND DEALERS, PLEASE VIEW THIS WHEN YOU HAVE A CHANCE


(CS811) A Nice German NSDAP 30 mm Party Badge having had a factory conversion pin fixing. The badge has had some enamel damage to it, on the white enamel around the edge, but nothing too serious. The reverse is numbered 6933 and is unresearched, though the actual badge itself is shown in the book "For Fuhrer and Fatherland, Political & Civil Award of the Third Reich" by LTC John R Angolia on page 393, where it is attributed to the Michael Xilas museum collection. Other than this, no research has been done on the badge. Very nice to find a documented, featured badge from one of the highly esteemed publications from the late 1980's.SORRY I AM SOLD 12.3.18 GBP 1500.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS861) A Rare 5 Don Cossack Regimental Cross in aluminium. Nice quality and complete with its steel pin. The cross retains a large amount of its original paint finish. The cross has four holes drilled or punched into its surface, where it may well have been sewn to a tunic even though the pin fixing still works. The cross was picked up by a member of the Tank Corps who served in Africa, Italy and ended up in Austria. Very Hard Award to find. This cross is only the third I have had and matches the other two crosses identically. SORRY I AM SOLD

(R276) A Nice example of a Bronze Close Combat Clasp that has been used and worn in service. The clasp is a maker marked example being of standard quality and construction of this maker. The reverse is marked to the lefthand side FEC W. E. PEEKHAUS BERLIN and to the righthand side AUSF. A.G.MuK GABLONZ. The clasp has a cast in hinge and counter sunk hook. It retains much of its original bronze finish. The only downside is that the back plate is missing. Priced for this. SORRY I AM ON HOLD GBP 225.00 (UK Pounds)

(S17) A Nice example of a scarcely encountered Sardinia Shield. The shield is of stamped metal and has all the usual features associated with the originals. Becoming very hard to find. Most seen now are reproduction. SORRY I AM ON HOLD GBP 275.00 (UK Pounds)

(S414) A Nice example of a Luftwaffe Ground Combat Badge being the type with a secondary eagle affixed by a single rivet over the badge. This secondary eagle is a nice bright silver example and gives the badge good contrast. The badge to the reverse has the faint maker's stamp of G Osang Dresden just below the rivet. The pin, hinge and hook all work fine and the badge could do with a mild clean, as it retains much of the original blue cloud finish in contrast to the silvered wreath, which has now oxidised.SORRY I AM SOLD 1.3.18 GBP 325.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS107) A Superb example of the seldom encountered 2nd Pattern SS Totenkopf Cap Badge. The badge is of die cast zinc with a silver finish applied. This has worn over the years, giving it a nice two toned appearance. The reverse of the badge has both its prongs affixed into the reverse of the metal of the badge. The badge is also maker marked RZM 499/41. Nice crisp striking. This is a textbook example of the 499 type. The badge was recently purchased in a local auction from the estate of an ex British Serviceman namely Mr Sandford, we can give this as we haved his WWII medals . SORRY I AM SOLD 28.02.18 GBP 1000.00 (UK Pounds)

(S386) A Very Rare examle of an Early nickel Silver SS Buckle. The buckle is the type attributed to O 7 C OF Ludenscheid, but the nice thing about this actual buckle is that it is fully maker marked for this firm. The buckle has this full trade mark stamped into the retaining end and reads as follows "OVERHOFF & CIE LUDENSCHEID GES GESCH". The retaining belt hook is braised to the buckle and then you have a steel post and prongs to hold the belt. The buckle has overall wear and tear, but matches known original O & C buckles. There is an illustrated example of one of these in the book "Belts, Buckles and Brocades of the Third Reich" by John R Angolia where an illustration is found on page 206, this style is shown at the top. It also shows the front of this style of buckle on page 205, whereas the one on 206 just shows the reverse with the trademark. Very rare to find, this being only the first one with the trademark I have had in over 30 years of dealing. SORRY I AM SOLD 8.11.17 GBP 895.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC259) A rare example of a Fritz Todt Award in Silver. The award has toned to the front on the cogwheel giving it a two-toned appearance, as can be seen from the scan.

The badge box has no markings to be seen anywhere and is opened by a press stud.. The Set was also used in the book "The Iron Cross of 1939 " By Gordon Williamson on page 177 Top. These combinations are rarer than the Knights Cross SORRY I AM SOLD 1/10/17

(S408) A Nice and Rare example of a Luftwaffe Paratrooper's Badge being manufactured in coupal and as such, the badge is a lightweight example. The badge has had its hook snapped at some time, but other than this, it is in very good condition.

The card is 9 cm by 14 cm and has to the lefthand corner Reichs Kanzler Adolf Hitler. Then to the right of this is a blue ink pen signature of A Hitler. The signature is hard to see unless held to the light as it has faded over the years. Under examination from a glass, you can see the ink trail from start to finish with where the pen was removed, the concentration of ink. The card is nice and clean and was recently found in an album in Germany. This type of postcard was often signed at public events such as the olympics, or street parades and given to the chosen few in the audience, often children, which makes it more rare this has survived in such good condition. Very rare to find, especially personally signed by Hitler. An amazing pieee of history. SORRY I AM ON HOLD GBP 1500.00 (UK Pounds)

Onto these tabs are fixed two panzer skulls with three prongs. The skulls are magnetic in construction and the tabs appear to have been removed from a tunic. The pair show mild wear, but nothing serious and although the skulls show light powder rusting, this is hardly detectable, but is to be expected from a used pair. These are a classic textbook pair, not often encountered nowadays. SORRY I AM SOLD 5.3.18 GBP 495.00 (UK Pounds)

Other than this, the case is in ok condition and is quite hard to find. The lid of the award has the SS runes embossed to them in white. Very unusual to find. The medal was amongst many items that were picked up by a British Soldier who was a camp guard and was stationed at an SS barracks. He acquired many items by swapping, trading and purloining at the end of the war or which this is one of them SORRY I AM SOLD 23/2/18 GBP 1000.00 (UK Pounds)

(S52) A Luftwaffe Air Gunner's/Radio Operator's Badge being the Earlier nickel silver type. The badge comes in its original Case of Issue that is of in my opinion, mid war construction and has the award's designation in gold lettering to the lid, on a blue two piece hard case opened by a push stud. To the inside, you have a split paper liner that protects the hinge, with the same padded paper to the underside of the lid. And then this paper is overlaid to the base that can be removed. It has a cut out for the pin and hook as well as embossed to the bottom, the numbering that looks like 616KB. The award itself is a nice BSW marked example and has a nice overall two toned oxidised silver and burnished silver look.

The case has a gold blocked eagle impressed to the lid, although in this case, it has gone black. The inside of the case has a white silk liner to the underside and a red card two pieced divider to the base. The case in my opinion, has had this liner replaced or restored. The medal which was the last in the series, was given to the Germans who marched into the Memelland district and as it is such a small place, only about 40,00 of these awards were made. This example is the dark chocolate bronze type. Becoming increasingly hard to find, this one is mounted on its original ribbon with its pin. Originally sold by Ulric of England a few years ago it is still listed on his sold items . RARE to find SORRY I AM SOLD

To the underside of the lid, you have the coat of arms and the trademark for a Dresden jeweller. The case is hinged and has a clam shell type opener to the front. The quality and construction is superb. The iron cross itself is a nice near mint example that is unmarked, but looks like it may well be a number 3.

The cross originally came with a packet and full length piece of ribbon. The blue paper packet is split and torn and is maker marked Frank & Reif and had a sticker stuck to the back stating it was an oversized iron cross, by a collector at some time, but this has now been removed, leaving the obvious mark. Very nice to acquire, these were designated the knight's Cross in one of the publications at the start of the war, but this was superceded pretty quickly by what we now see. Priced for condition.

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.

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.

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.

The badge has the retaining clip to the reverse, with the maker's name embossed to the pin plate, with the numbers 461 engraved into it. With this comes some photocopied letters relating this female and her party number. It says she joined the NSDAP party on the 2/04/1925 and that she was born in 1886. She was a member of other German organisations. There is a copy of her Munich party card, showing her picture and this also shows the death rune and has a cross through it, denoting she died. I can find no date though when she did die, on the correspondence. Very rare to find identified party badges to such an early member of the party. She must have known some of the major figures in the party and this is a nice historical badge with supporting paperwork. Well worthy of further research.
