    Offered is this tunic removed cuff title for an EM in the Luftwaffe's fabled Hermann Göring division. This example has been shortened to about 6 inches overall. The ends are not finished, so it is unknown if this was done after it was removed from the uniform sleeve, or if it was period done and shortened as to only cover the facing slide of the sleeve cuff as was sometimes preferred. The cuff title is in fine condition otherwise with only some minor staining to the G and O. Absolutely original.

    Here is a nice sized 48 Star flag from the WWII era. It is a printed version, printed on a linen base cloth. It measures approximately 25”X35”. On the bunting edge, there are two sewn rings. The upper is an original ring in bronze. The lower has been replaced by a key ring type split ring. There are no holes, but there is a repair to the lower tail. This repair was carried out with a patch of cellophane tape on both sides of a small tear. It has been sewn together through the tape. This tape has yellowed somewhat so likely was done years ago. The entire flag has toned nicely with age, and there is some minor separation to the hem stitch in places. The flag remains solid however.

    Coming from a large Luftwaffe collection that we are disposing is this uncommon piece of Luftwaffe insignia. This is an enlisted ranks breast eagle in the seldom encountered BeVo construction. This rare 1st pattern eagle is woven in white thread on a dark blue back cloth has been trimmed for mounting, but does not appear to have ever been sewn. Some minor soiling, but excellent otherwise

    Offered is this used, but otherwise complete Plasch-Palatka or Tent/Ponch. This specimen shows typical fading and staining. There is on 20x25 mm hole in the body, but this example is complete otherwise. All corners are intact and all the factory installed toggles are present. This example has been soldier modified with the addition of several extra toggles sewn on to it for an unknown reason. Interesting is that the flap over the arm hole is in a contrasting color. This is not something seen very often. Both drawstrings are present. There is a factory stamp and it is 41 dated. However, it is quite weakly stamped. It can barely be made out, but being familiar with this particular factory stamp helps.

    Offered is this decent belt and buckle ensemble for a Luftwaffe enlisted man. A late war, tabless buckle in blue painted steel on a late war, 100cm leather combat belt. The buckle is in good condition wit about 70% of the original blue paint and no rust. The belt leather is in typical used condition, showing much wear and chaffing. There is a shallow gouge out of one edge as shown in the photos. A nice rig for a late war, Luftwaffe flak or ground troop display.

    Offered is this lot of three (3) assorted Luftwaffe metal eagles. Included are two early, droop tailed eagles used to adorn service photo albums. The third eagle is for the tropical pith helmet. Both the photo album eagles are missing a prong on the revers. The silver painted specimen has some paint loss. The detail to the darker finished eagle is rather stunning considering its rather humble purpose, and not an award or uniform insignia. The tropical helmet eagle is certainly original, but has been heavily cleaned at some point in its life. It too is missing one of the prongs on the reverse.

    For your consideration is the really sharp Luftwaffe M43 field cap.  Constructed in the typical Luftwaffe blue wool with artificial silk liner, this cap is sized 58, RB Numbered and dated 1944.  It has  a textbook application of 2-piece insignia consisting of a machine applied, BeVo rosette and hand applied eagle.  The eagle clearly applied before the cap was complete as the crown stitch that secures the liner passed through one of the wing types. Sweat stains to the interior and some brown stains to the visor.  No other damage to the excellent cap.

    This Plasch is a good/bad proposition. The bad is that it is very faded, particularly on one side. It also has some mildew staining, a 1 x 3 inch "L" tear near the center along with a few missing toggles and a minor hole or two. The good is that it is complete with both drawstrings, stitched corner grommets that are not torn out, and has a good,clear factory stamp showing a 1941 production date. Certainly not mint, but largely complete and will complete a display kit nicely. A couple of the corners still have period tie rope in them. There is also some twine in the button holes where the missing toggles were.

    Offered is this superb specimen of the iconic Soviet "Shapka-Ushanka). This hat is in splendid condition with typical soiling, nap wear to the fleeced cotton crown , and some minor fur loss to some edges. This hat has what appear to be the original tie strings, but these have been resewn a time or two. The hat was acquired without insignia, but the front flap had been pierced for one. I have added a very nice M1935, 2-piece cap star in a condition appropriate for this cap.The grey cotton interior shows minor soiling and minor evidence of wear. In the interior crown can be found the maker's mark . This is of the more generic wartime type where the block stamp only has the "4" for the 40 years and the second digit was to be applied secondary. As is quite common, it never was.

    Offered is another nice wartime Ushanka in a nice worn condition. This example is unmarked, but in materials typical of wartime construction. There is nap wear to the fleeced cotton body, but little if any fur loss. There is a short section of open seam on the rear turn up and some minor damage where the left ear flap meets the body. There is also a 50 cm tear in the rear of the body that has been repaired. This damage is just hidden by the rear turn up an right side ear flap. The interior is again unmarked, but typical in construction. It is soiled with some minor wear through at the forehead. The hat has what appears to be the original ties, but they are resewn. The front flap is finished with a nice looking single piece cap star with full enamel. A sharp looking ushanka.

    This ushanka is a great find indeed. Despite some slight fur loss to the front flap, it would appear that when this Ushanka was taken as a souvenir (I sourced this from Germany), it was unissued or nearly so. The cotton fleece body is slightly soiled, but has nearly all the nap remaining. The ear flaps are secured with the original ties. The front flap has never been pierced for a star insignia, nor has it ever had its corners tied to the cap body as was nearly universally done by Soviet soldiers after these hats were issued. The interior is slightly soiled as well. It does have one short area of open stitching where the interior crown meets the sides, but this appears to be a simple manufacturing defect as opposed to damage. The interior is complete with a nice factory stamp and a clear 1940 date. A very fine specimen.
