• This lot includes two copies of the wartime history, stereoscopic viewer book "Der Kampf in Westen"  or "The battle in the West"  The subject matter deals with the 1940 campaign into France.  One book is complete, or nearly so, with the stereoscopic view and most all the slides.  The second contains only a small portion of the original slides.  Both copies have worn covers, with various damages to the spine and corners.  There may be water stains and other types of age damage though out.  However, the one copy is presentable and mostly complete.  A few of the pasted in, color images to the interior have come unattached and could use a little repair work.   An interesting, period presentation of the 1940 campaign, in a media format that time has since forgotten.
  • Early Third Reich era Arbeitsbuch or "Work Book".  These books were the common work permit held by virtually every employed civilian person of the era.  This example still bears the earlier Weimar era eagle on the front cover.  Interior has no photograph, but is typically annotated with hand entries.
  • Offered is this well used, but intact Truppen-Ausweis cover. Constructed in black simulated leather, with celluloid pockets to the interior for the prewar era Truppen-Ausweis. The celluloid is intact with no cracking. The exterior shows signs of frequent use, mostly spine wear to the back fold of the cover. A good specimen of an uncommon ID document cover.
  • Wartime ephemera such as this Christmas decoration are nearly impossible to find.  This Christmas star was intended to be purchased and shipped vie Feldpost to a loved one in service to decorate a barracks or bunker for the holiday season.  Supplied in kit form with full instructions, hardware, and assembly tool.  Other than the tool and metal hardware, the star is constructed entirely of paper.   A rare item that would make a great addition to any collection.  Feldpost shipping box is roughly 10x5x5 inches.  All components are in excellent condition.
  • Here is a nice little lot of original Feldpost letters. 10 pieces total with a good selection of stamps and dates. Great to fill out your personal kit selection.
  • Offered as a single lot is this super award certificate for the Heer marksmanship lanyard and a nice 1st pattern Heer marksmanship lanyard.  Please note, that we have paired these two items together as a single lot.  They were not acquired together.  Regardless, a nice combination for the Heer collector.  The lanyard is in find condition with no issues.  It is of the type constructed without the backing fabric to the braid, so nothing is missing in that regard.  The large format document is impressive, colorful, and already framed for hanging in your collection display.  Very nice.
  • A nice selection of Adolf Hitler portrait head stamps.  Unused stamps, with one each of various denominations from 1 pfennig to 1 Reichsmark, 23 in all.
  • "Hell over France" is a period history book dealing with the air war over France during the 1940 invasion.  Many such books were publish shortly after the early victories of the Third Reich to foster public interest in the military and nationalism.  Book is complete with the original dust jacket and in good condition.
  • Here is a nice studio portrait shot of a Luftwaffe EM. Though black and white, the tab color seems to be for Flak Artillery most likely. The portrait offers a nice study of the M40 helmet as well. Condition is good with some wave to the paper, but the photo is free of major damage. It is also dated on the reverse 1942 and has a short annotation that I cannot make out.
  • Date issue of NS-Frauen Warte.  This period magazine directed at women during the 3rd Reich period contained articles on fashion, beauty, sewing etc.  Included in each was a sewing pattern.  They are also full of interesting period advertising.

  • Interesting wood and brass pen holder of the Third Reich period.  This pen holder appears to be a simple, patriotic item from the period. The age on this item is quite apparent.  We assume a simple patriotic type item because the national eagle follows no known pattern related to any military, paramilitary, or civilian organization.  Nice addition to a Third Reich desk or clerical  display.
  • This postcard is likely pre-war given the content. The postcard bears a typical message being communicated in the early days of the Third Reich as the focus was on strengthening the German economy and infrastructure. This one carries a message that encourages the recipient to buy German goods.
  • These cards reading basically, “A small thank you to one of the Fuehrer’s soldiers” were often inserted into gifts sent to the front. This unused example is in nice condition, undamaged, with a well embossed national eagle.
  • An interesting and uncommon document.  This is a prewar, German issued, international driver's license to a Gerhard Vogel.  This Freiburg issued document contains miscellaneous  stamps and annotations.  At one time it had a stapled in photo, but the photo included as inside the document.  It bears a Freiburg studio stamp so I suspect it is a duplicate of that which was originally affixed to the inside.
  • Here is a nice, representative photo album for a member of the ReichsArbeitsdienst or RAD.  Several pages of general RAD service and time in the occupied territories of the Soviet Union.
