    Offered is this exceptional belt and buckle rig.  This item was just picked up in our local area  from the daughter and son-in-law of the U.S. Vet.   Luftwaffe tropical rigs are rare in any condition, but this one leaves little to be desired unless you only settle for mint condition.  The buckle is a leather tabbed, tan painted buckle, marked for the Noelle & Hueck firm of Luedenscheid, and is dated 1942.  The buckle is initialed between the tab leather layers "AH". The belt is sized 85 cm on the brown, pebbled leather adjustment tab and is maker marked to the P. D. Luneschloss firm of Solingen. Like the buckle, it is 1942 dated as well. The belt is of the variation with tip terminated in olive cotton tape for added protection against fraying. This buckle and belt combination are in excellent condition with the buckle rating 90% for paint finish. All leather is in good condition and both piece demonstrate only limited wear and just the right amount of patina for a "one look" original.

    Here is something you don't see every day. In fact, it might be unique.  This cap started life as a standard issue, Soviet enlisted man's Pilotka or side cap.  Falling into German hands, this cap has been dyed blue and pressed into Luftwaffe service.  In addition to the blue dye job, this cap has had a Luftwaffe cap rosette and flight/para yellow soutasche added.  The blue dye has taken well to the once gray interior fabric, but the exterior shows some minor fading of the dye.  The interior is quite dark, but a factory mark, 1941 date, and a 54cm size mark can just be made out.  A very interesting piece for your collection.

    Here is a nice Soviet gas mask carrier for your consideration.  This late war carrier is made of the soft cotton material often referred to as "tea towel" fabric.  It has a classic Soviet wooden toggle adjustment on the shoulder strap, and has the waist tie as well.  This waist tie is often missing as Red Army soldiers would remove it for convenience.  This carrier has the wooden blocks in the bottom to support the filter, and best of all... it is 44 dated.  A fabulous carrier.

    Soviet M36 backpacks in a condition such as this one have gotten very difficult to find.  This pack is in fine condition overall.  There is some dryness and chafing to the leather and one crack in the leather on one shoulder strap. However, the web backing layer keeps things together strongly.  This pack is also complete in that it has the lower belt hook.  These packs come in two variations in this regard. Some are set up for it and others are not.  Packs that are set up for the lower belt hook often are missing this small piece much like  it is missing from many comparable German tornisters.  A rare opportunity to obtain this model backpack in complete state and in good condition.  Everything here is factory original, even the interior pocket buttons.

    Offered is this above average condition, Soviet M1936 Mess Kit.  In the German style, this kidney shaped mess kit saw limited issue before 1942, but was reverted back to the classic bucket/pail type as the war continued.  This example is 41 dated and has a high percentage of the original olive paint remaining.  The interior contains the long dried remains of the last meal served... actually it is likely paint clinging to the sides.  It might clean up, but we have not attempted.

    For your consideration is this fine SS enlisted man's dress dagger.  This piece was a recent pick up by one of our contacts here in Kentucky, and comes from an estate buy in Pennsylvania.  Marked RZM 941 for the famous Carl Eickhorn firm, this is a fine specimen of a desirable dagger.  Complete with scabbard and hanger, this dagger is sure to please.  The fittings are tight, the blade unsharpened and with and undamaged tip.  There is some oxidation to the blade, and typical runner marks, but the cross-grain remains visible.  RZM marks and motto remain clear.  The scabbard has some typical paint loss, but easily rates above 90% and is dent free.  Grip has a few minor dents, but is free from cracks or other damage.  Inset eagle is excellent.  The enamel in the SS grip insignia has one shallow chip between the runes.  The black leather hanger shows typical wear to the leather and nickle plating,  but is functional and in fine condition.  The clip is marked RZM M5/25 for Christian Theodor Dicke, Lüdenscheid.  Overall, this is a fine piece that we were very please to acquire and offer to our clients.

    Offered is this veteran's organization visor cap. This was originally a DRKB Visor that was converted to the Third Reich era NS-RKB. These visor hats vary widely with insignia detail and furniture. This example has the replacement cap band to convert it to NS-RKB and never had a cap eagle insignia only the front badge. This specimen appears to have never had a chinstrap either. Condition is good overall. There is enamel loss to the front badge and the original sweat diamond is missing. The visor, cap body, sweat band, and liner remain sound. A very affordable Third Reich visor.

    British Army Officer's Visor for General Service.  General Service meaning meaning part of the regular army and not one of the "elite" or traditional units... not to be confused with General Staff.  This hat is in good condition, showing the signs of wartime use and wear.  There is some mothing to the visor top, but this is largely limited to the area under the leather chinstrap and is hidden.  Hat is solid with no other damage aside from the mothing.

    Offered  is this incredible specimen of the greatcoat worn by the Feuerschutzpolitzei. This fireman's coat is in non-issued condition with no damage to speak of.  Cut in heavy, dark blue wool, this coat has a black faced collar and silvered RZM buttons.  Complete with dagger hanger in the left pocket.  The traces of the white ink, RZM stamp can be found in the interior skirt.  Complete with all buttons, and  half belt in the reverse.  Very nice!
  • Offered is this Heer side cap for and Infantry enlisted man.  The cap itself is very clean, showing minimal use, probably not issued by the Heer.  Based on the interior markings, this cap got a second life of sorts in the Soviet film industry as there is a Russian cinema mark inside.  The exterior shows three holes. Two are small, but there is one above the eagle's wing that is more significant.  There is also some wool knap grazing in places across the cap body, but nothing terrible. It has a Lago-Berlin maker mark, sized 54,  and is 1941 dated.  It also contains the correct Berlin depot stamp, albeit a bit faint.  The vent grommets are the painted type and are correct in construction.  There are also several pen ink annotations from its time in Russian hands.  The insignia on this cap are all hand applied, including the soutache.  This is not uncommon for such Lago made caps, but in this case each is applied in a different thread color and the stitches do not appear to have been done by the same hand, as they vary. Whether this is work of the theater, earlier or later I cannot say.  I make no claims that these insignia are original to the cap.  In addition, the soutache is applied correctly through holes in the field grey wool near the bottom of the cap face. It had been lightly stitched on, and further anchored with field grey thread 1/3 the way up from the bottom.  The wearer's right side soutache end had come unattached at the base and simply tucked back into the mounting hole in the wool.  This cap has a few issues, but it is well marked, the components are all original in and of themselves, and still a decent specimen.

    Offered is this nice single M/N pouch.  Pairs are better, but these days we take what we can get.  This pouch is a typically constructed prewar/wartime era pouch.  The leather is in good condition, with only a slight tear to the back corner of one pouch lid.  The interior is ink stamped. Unfortunately it cannot be read, but such pouches are mostly dated 1940 or earlier.   A nice clean pouch with no major issues that will get you on your way to a pair or possibly complete a pair if you happen to have it's mate.

    Offered is this fine specimen of the wartime issue Soviet Ssh-40 helmet.  Honest, wartime examples of this model have gotten to be extremely difficult to locate.  This example is in nice condition and remains in the full wartime configuration with no postwar rework. The exterior retains 85%+ of the original factory green paint. There are typical scuffs and old, dark patina rust spots.  There are no dents or damage to the shell.  The interior is complete with all three synthetic leather pads, one has some minor damage.  The drawstring has been replaced at some point with jute twine.  The size 1 shell is mark and dated L-44 for 1944 production at the LMZ facility.  The helmet is finished off with the original chinstrap in natural cotton web as seen from about 1943 until the war's end.  This is a super Ssh-40 in a condition that warrants strong consideration.  A rare helmet in an uncommon condition.
