    The 2019 MAX Show was a bit anti-climactic for Sean and I.  However, we did manage to find one great helmet to pass on.  Offered is this Luftschutz reissued, Soviet Ssh-39 helmet.  Typically, we pass on these, but this specimen has a lot going for it.  In terms of factory condition, this helmet is all original.  The liner, chinstrap, and liner drawstring are the original Soviet applications.  The Luftschutz decal is mostly intact, and there is just enough paint loss to demonstrate the original Soviet factory green showing through.  Also visible through the Luft blue is the presence of the original, factory applied red star insignia.  Best of all, this helmet has a complete liner, of the early Kirza made, finger type.  An early made Ssh-39 impressed into German service.

    This may be the most inexpensive bit of SS insignia you will ever find.  This tab, or what is left of it, is an original collar tab for personnel assigned to temporary duty as a concentration camp guard.  The buckram backing is gone and there is evidence of scrapbook mounting to the reverse.

    We picked this tunic up at the TMCA show in Nashville a year or so ago with the intent of finishing up the restoration.  We have since decided, we don' t have the band width to take it on.  This was a stripped tunic that someone started work on, but did not complete.  The button application, rank chevron, awards loops and breast eagle are all part of the restoration effort.  The eagle was machine sewn by opening up the liner at the closure facing and then resewing it.  The chevron is machine sewn, but starting to come off as the person doing the work got too close to the edge.  All of this work, the button sewing, and a few hole repairs were all done with the same thread.  Were we to take this on, we would completely start over.  The work is presentable, but a skilled hand could do better.   The tunic is in solid condition, but is missing the shoulder board loops, and the interior belt support straps.  The grey artificial silk liner is in good condition otherwise and the tunic is RBNr. marked.  It is a decent size for torso display.

    Offered is this early motto bladed Hitler Youth Fahrtenmesser.  This knife is an average specimen, showing the effects of being carried by a young boy.  The scabbard has lost all its original finish, and appears to have been helped along in that effort.  The handle keeper strap has lost the bottom half of the press stud and has become separated from the top rivet.  The knife is missing the leather washer, and most of the red enamel from the lower point of the diamond.  The blade has seem some sharpening and use, but the full shape seems to still be intact.  The "Blut und Ehre" motto is present, but a bit faded from cleaning.   Marked for the Hartkopf & Co. Solingen, with that makers logo.

    Offered is this interesting side cap for a Heer NCO or EM.  Cut in a more pale shade of field gray, this cap is also unusually lined in a natural cotton cloth.  Overall condition is very nice, with some nap loss and staining, but no major damage or holes.  It is unmarked, but probably sized around 56cm.  The early type, green backed insignia are hand applied.  An interesting cap, possibly from a small maker, or artisan as opposed to a larger uniform factory.

    This larger sized, 1 liter, field flask is often associated with German mountain troops.  This specimen is a nice, filed worn specimen.  Complete with all the proper leather and a Bakelite cup.  It is soiled, stained, and worn for field use, but nice overall.  There is one weak spot in the leather at the base of the belt clip, but everything is holding on firmly still.

    Offered is this rather presentable rural police bayonet with eagle head pommel, stag handle, and police eagle and wreath.  Unfortunately it is the bayonet only, the scabbard is missing. Still, someone out there needs this for their empty scabbard or nice scabbard with a substandard bayonet.  There is some wear and finish loss to the plating, but the overall condition is still good.  Blade is maker marked to the Weyersberg & Kirschenbaum firm of Solingen and is unit marked S.B. 10135.

    Offered is this nice, later issue Hitler Youth knife.  A "no motto", RZM type, marked M17/112 for the Karl Wustoff firm.  The knife is is good condition, a die cast handle and cross guard with about 50%  loss to the paint or plating.  The diamond enamel is mostly intact, with some very minor chipping.  The top grip has the typical cracks at the white corners of the diamond where it is most narrow, but the grip remains tight.   The blade has been sharpened and has had some cleaning as well.  The leather washer is intact.  The scabbard is in good condition, with a nice and uncommon blued steel body.  The leather is in good condition as well.   The snap on the cross strap functions, but is missing the decorative trim cap from the topside.

    Offered is this very interesting Heer pattern zeltbahn.  This example is mostly complete and free of major damage or repairs.  It is an earlier example with all aluminum hardware.  What is most interesting are the markings, in particular the 2 Esk.    This is a bit difficult to decipher with no other context, but based on the U.S. Army compilation of German military abbreviations, this could be 2nd Eskorte (mounted convoy escort) or the 2nd Eisenbahnsonderkommando (special railroad service command).  Very nice zelt.

    Offered is this interesting armband of unknown purpose or use.  I have been advised that the construction is a French style, so possible impressed into use by the German occupiers.  It is a 2 sided affair, red and white.  On both sides, it is dated 1940 and marked for the Flieger Unterkunft Verwaltung (Fl.U.V).  If you have information, please let us know.

    While not complete, the M40 combat helmet is rather stunning.  This helmet is a single decal combat helmet for the Kriegsmarine.  This is evident in the bold gold tone of the visible metallic. Likewise, the layered KM decal's metallic areas ( the eagle, and swastika) have reacted in a unique way with the camo paint. These areas have  have ghosted through the camo paint.  The shell is a nice size, and EF66. The factory grey paint has been over sprayed in a dark yellow. The liner skin is gone, as is the chinstrap. Only remnants of each remain.  Liner bands and split pins are original to the helmet.

    Offered is this super Japanese, Type 90 combat helmet.  This helmet is complete with full liner and chinstrap tie.  A very high percentage of the original paint remains, despite some areas of rust.  This helmet has an obvious swath of a lighter khaki hand painted around the exterior of the shell which appears to have been done to offer some camouflage.  A very interesting specimen.

    This Luftwaffe fliegerbluse was  a recent pick up from one of our regular sources.  This blouse  shows moderate wear throughout, with typical nap wear and a few small holes.  It is fully badged for an  Fallschirmjaeger Obergefreiter. There is some damage to the right (when worn) shoulder board, but the pair is of a very uncommon, late war type.  They are of the style that are backed with a red fabric strip, which is not often encountered.   It is evident that the breast eagle on this tunic is the only one that has ever been machine sewn to the tunic.  However, the eagle, collar tabs, and the cloth FJ badge appear to have been sewn at the same time with the same thread.  It is certainly possible that this tunic originally had a hand sewn breast eagle, with stitching that did not pass through to the liner.  As such, this tunic may have been collector/dealer restored at some point as FJ.  We have priced the tunic accordingly.  Based on the style of eagle in the FJ badge in cloth found on this tunic, the badge seems to be of the "Type 3" style with some variability to the top of the wreath.  As part of the restoration of this tunic, a small square of wool was cut out of the reverse side of the front closure.  We suspect that this material was used to make the looks for the shoulder boards.

    Another recent arrival is this really nice singel decal, M40 combat helmet for the Luftwaffe.  This Q64 shell retains most of the factory paint and a very high percentage of the Luftwaffe Adler.  The helmet is completed with a full liner with owner initials, drawstring, and chinstrap.  The chinstrap has an old, possibly period repair in the form of a rivet and washer.  Overall, a very nice Luftwaffe combat helmet.

    We recently picked up this super example of the black twill side cap as worn by Luftwaffe ground crew and mechanic personnel.   This cap retains a rich, dark color with minimal fading and a firmly attached Adler.  This specimen is a bit nicer than most others because it is an earlier example, being 1939 dated.  The interior tag is what really sets this cap apart from most others currently found for sale.  The interior contains a separately applied maker tag for the Heinrich Ohlig firm.  It is sized 57 and again, dated 1939.  To top it all off, the original owner has also penned his name to the tag.

    The insignia for these sport shirts are fairly common, but this small format type is not as easy to find.  Either way, complete sports shirts are much more difficult to find.  From a recent buy, we are pleased to be able to offer this complete sport shirt for a member of the Luftwaffe.  Some soiling from age and use, but a nice specimen.

    A new consignor has come on board with us this week, and has allowed us the opportunity to list a couple of really nice camouflage combat helmets. The first is sure to please.  Offered is this brilliant, 3-tone, "Normany" type camouflage helmet, that was once part of Sean's own collection.  This Heer M40 has received a typical application of the three basic German camouflage colors over the factory gray paint.  This wonderful helmet is complete with a full liner and chinstrap.  The shell is a NS62 and is both named and Feldpost numbered in the rear skirt.  At some point in its life, this helmet appears to have been varnished or clear coated possibly, creating a bit of a sheen.  However, the colors are really strong and the helmet remains in excellent condition.
