Item 6753 WW2 Japanese grenade

   

   

A textbook example of the M97 Japanese hand grenade. These are really the quintessential GI souvenir from the Pacific. They were unusual enough to attract guys attention and portable enough to bring home. This one has all the internal goodies. The fire-pin and spring are in their but I was not going to dismantle this grenade to photograph them. $295.00

Here is a fairly straight Pekuro visor hat with the Pekuro style cloth re-enforcement between the sweat band and the body of the hat.  No Moth damage and no soiling. the size is about 59.

This is a 1943 dated Overhoff belt buckle with the standard markings 155/43. These wartime ones were painted feldgrau and today are the most difficult to find. Not a lot of the feldgrau is left but it's clear t see this belt and buckle saw a lot of action. Note hw the belt was made smaller because the guy wearing it had lost about 3 inches from his waist line. The Russian Front does not put meat on a man's bones... The belt is marked and dated '44 but nothing to indicate that it is SS marked. $425.00

 

-----------------------------

Item 6745 WW2 German MG42 display gun

       

     

     

  

The Iconic, 1200-rounds-per-minute, Nazi burp gun made notorious from the eastern front to Normandy!

This MG42 has an original receiver which has had it's center portion cut-away and replaced with a solid steel block. The barrel is welded to the front and cannot be removed or exchanged for a live barrel. The deactivation method is fully approved by the BATF and there is no way this gun can be converted into a live-firing weapon again. It is intended as a display. But what a great display it makes. The blue of all the steel parts is excellent with no pitting. As mentioned above, the receiver is original WW2 German produced (maker marked and dated 1943), the top cover is WW2 German; the rest of the gun is a mixture of Yugoslavian parts (As you know, the Yugoslavians adopted the MG42 for use by their army and produced thousands in the post-war years. The parts are interchangeable with the German wartime made guns. The sling is a new-made reproduction which is identical stitch-for-stitch with pre-1945 examples. The 50 round drum magazine is original dated 1942 but has been repainted. Overall, they do not get much prettier than this. SOLD

This is a very handsome piece, with a broad very firm looking front and a rounded, yet distinct crown. The wool is extremely good quality doe-skin.

-----------------------------

Item 6741 WW2 German visor hat for Panzer officer by August Schellenberg

     

     

This Panzer officer visor hat is made from a very thin weight field grey doeskin. The cap is nicely shaped but made to be lightweight as there is not much padding in it. The panzer pink piping is in great shape however there is a slight area of moth visitation on the top panel showing two chew spots as can be seen in the photos. The approximate size of this hat is 57. The gold rayon lining has some moisture staining from wear. The moisture shield has has a broad silver diamond "Ideal" logo with the small August Schellenberg bear at the top. $1200.00

 

-----------------------------

Item 6742 WW2 German visor hat for officer of Military police or recruiting

This example is in pretty fine condition with no damage to the material. The inside shows general light wear. There is a full circumference black velvet insert around the bottom of the cap which is a characteristic of "Pekuro" visor hats.  All stitching is solid and sound. The insignia is original to the hat. The size is about 57. $2150.00

 

 

-----------------------------

Item 6743 WW2 private purchase EM artillery visor hat

     

     

This is a top quality private purchase example made of fine quality tricot material with red piping.

The size of the lining is 55 and is private purchase all the way with silver/grey silk material and a rhomboid moisture shield with makers name. SOLD

 

 

-----------------------------

Item 6744 WW2 Late war Luftwaffe M43 hat

       

     

This is a hat made in April or May of 1945 if ever I saw one... The material is lighter in weight than I generally see. The lining material is quite thin as well. The hat is marked only with a size marking. I believe that the insignia is original to the hat. Overall it has a shoddy appearance but is 100% original pre-May 8 1945. SOLD

 

 

-----------------------------

Item 6738 WW2 Waffen SS enlisted man's overseas hat

       

       

       

This side cap is a "one looker" if ever there was one. Mote the heavy nap wear and the general signs of age; these simply cannot be replicated. The wool material is worn but has no moth damage. You can see the nap remaining under the folded areas. The insignia is a set of textbook Bevo skull and eagle which are hand sewn to the front. Looking closely, you can see the nap in the material just inside the small nooks around the insignia. If one were brave (or silly) one could pry loose some stitches and see the nap beneath. There is a small repair at the middle of the top in the folded portion which is about the size of your middle finger nail. The hat is about a size 55. inside markings have worn away long ago. Overall, one can easily imagine this hat worn every day for 2 years by a member of 2nd SS PanzerKorps from Ternopol through Normandy, Holland and Budapest. SOLD

 

-----------------------------

 

Item 6733 WW2 Panzer enlisted mans overseas hat

       

     

     

This hat has what I like to call a very nice "lived-in" look. It has been worn but not abused. It was stored decently after the war so is not effected by moth damage or stains. The eagle and cockade are hand-sewn. See the close up photos and you will agree with me that the insignia is original to the helmet; as is the pink piping. The inside maker markings have been worn away but the hat is a size 57. There is excellent nap wear all around the exterior which shows well in contrast to the wool inside the folds of the hat. An all-around honest and attractive piece. SOLD

 

-----------------------------

Item 6734 WW2 Luftwaffe flight visor hat By Christian Haug

     

     

Here is a pretty good example of your basic luftwaffe enlisted visor hat piped in yellow/flight piping. The wool has no damage, piping is intact with no visits by moth or mouse. The leather is intact and all stitching is sound. The celluloid diamond is intact. The size is 57. $400.00

 

-----------------------------

Item 6735 WW2 Luftwaffe signals visor hat by Robert Lubstein

     

     

Another very decent example of your basic Luftwaffe enlisted man's visor hat piped in saddle brown/signals piping. The wool has no damage, piping is in nice shape. The leather is intact and all stitching is sound. The celluloid diamond is intact; showing the manufacture by the prestigious hatmaker, Robert Lubstein of Berlin. The size is 57. $400.00

 

-----------------------------

Item 6736 WW2 Army winter fur hat

       

       

This is a very good condition size 56 winter fur hat as seen in wear by soldiers of all ranks all over the eastern front. The rayon lining is well marked and dated 1943. The metal eagle insignia appears to be original to the hat. The wool is free of moth damage but it looks like there is a mouse chew under the folded flap. These are among my favorite bits of headgear. $300.00

 

-----------------------------

Item 6737 WW2 tropical combat belt

       

This unmarked belt measures 99cm full-length which would indicate a 95cm waist size. It is in used condition with a leather tab that shows some surface cracks but remains completely sound. It is almost refreshing tom see a used example of one of these as so many have come from un-used stocks after the war. SOLD

 

-----------------------------

 

 

Item 6732 WW2 Waffen SS enlisted man's overseas hat

       

       

       

I believe that the SS side cap is the best looking piece of enlisted man's head gear to come out of the third Reich. This one is a choice example. It is faintly marked as a size 56 1/2 on the cotton lining. The wool is in very fne condition with no moth damage whatsoever. The hat shows only light/moderate wear with minor soiling to the inside near the edges. There is slight nap-wear to the exterior which you can see in contrast to the unworn surfaces beneath the fold of the hat. The insignia is original to the hat; being a textbook set of bevo skull and eagle; hand-sewn precisely with tiny, tight stitching.  Just the way we want to see it done.    SOLD

 

-----------------------------

Item 6703 WW2 German Luftwaffe enlisted man's overseas hat

     

     

   

This little goody has just about everything that we want to see in an original Third Reich hat. The wool retains a nice feldblau color with minor fading which you can see by comparing with the underlying material beneath the flap. The insignia is hand-sewn and is original to the hat. The cotton lining shows a good amount of wear but no damage. There is a very faint size marking which is either 56 1/2 or 55 1/2. Nothing here that you won't like. I guarantee it. SOLD

 

-----------------------------

Item 6708 WW2 German camouflage mittens, used

     

These were intended to be used in conjunction with the camouflage parka and trousers. They are padded/lined with blanket material. One of these gloves is slightly mis-matched from the other as both are used (winter accoutrements such as gloves and scarves were collected from the troops in the spring and stored in bins for re-issue the following winter....so mis-matched gloves are the norm if they are in used condition) Both are marked. $80 for the pair.

 

-----------------------------

Item 6714 WW2 German belt loops

   

I have a few of these. The maker marks are worn just about off. But they are original and are sound and functional. $20 each.

 

-----------------------------

Item 6715 WW2 German gas mask filter carry pouch

   

   

A rare and very cool accessory; this is a carry pouch for a spare filter for the standard M38 gas mask. I believe that these were made because the Germans envisioned there would be situation where one mask filter would simply not be enough; such as pioneer troops who may have to work in places where gas has recently been used; cleaning up the field or marking gas poisoned areas. The pouch is completely unmarked. The cloth is typical light-weight stuff as used in sub-sectional compartments in rucksacks and things of that nature. The buttons are 3-holed dish types as used with Zeltbahns. They are zinc plated steel indicating pst-1940 production. Very nice shape all the way around. $55.00

 

-----------------------------

Item 6716 WW2 German gas sheet bag

     

One of the more ignoble of German combat items; to be sure. But look how well marked it is. Un-issued condition with spot-less material and functional snaps. $25.00

 

-----------------------------

Item 6717 WW2 German late war cloth MG42 gunner's pouch

     

You have to love items that are made out of this cheap, heavy cotton material during the last stages of the war. Note the red stripe running arbitrarily across the back. There are no markings on it but the design is totally recognizable as the last ditch pattern of the MG42 gunner's pouch. This one is the earlier type with a cloth divider inside (Yes; there was a later type which lacked the inner divider). I am guessing that the number penned on the front is the serial number of the MG which was served by the guy who wore this pouch. Yes, it was never too late in the war for the Germans to be anal about something. Pliable leather and sound stitching. $125.00

 

-----------------------------

Item 6721 WW2 German Sanitater medical troops canteen

   

     

Check out the photos. This one has it all. Good overall look, matching condition components and clear markings. The body is without dentage. (spell-check says that "dentage" is not a word but I know better....) The cover is without moth damage. The strap has come loose from the cap and I am not sure how to rectify that situation so I'll let you do it. That is after you give me $80.00 for this item.

 

-----------------------------

Item 6723 WW2 German wool mittens

     

Those three little kittens wouldn't have lost their mittens if their mittens had been like these. This is a pair of standard wool "trigger finger" mittens lined with blanket material and equipped with leather tong connectors to keep them together. I had a pair of these when I lived for a short time in Russia some years ago. I can attest to the fact that they work better than anything you can find at Walmart. Clean and un-issued. No marks or dates. I've never seen a pair that had them. $50.00

 

-----------------------------

Item 6692 WW2 German infantry officer Visor hat

     

     

This is a good basic example of a no-frills German officer visor hat which most likely was purchased at the army Kleiderkasse rather than tailor made; ordered by the officer. The wool is field grade and is with out any evidence of moth visitation.  There is a small brown stain on the top of the crown. I have not tried to remove it. (see pics) The sweatband is that composite paper-like material. The celluloid diamond bears no maker marking; which would be comensurate with it being a Kleiderkasse item. The size is indicated as 59 1/4. The red portion of the cockade is vented; which is generally associated with Robert Lubstein hats. This could be a Lubstein "economy model" (?) I don't know. But I do believe you will find this hat to be a nice example for display with any infantry officer uniform. $665.00

 

-----------------------------

Item 6694 WW2 Tan painted gas mask

       

       

You know; I had been collecting over 20 years before I got my first example of one of these tan painted gas masks. I do not believe that they were painted this way at the factory. But I don't believe that they were individually done because if they were, the soldier would have just painted over the whole thing rather than select portions. I think they were painted on a wide scale and to specifications set down by the ordnance department.  I believe they are later-war done rather than done in the North African theater; but I could also be wrong about that. Some of you tropical enthusiasts may be more informed about this than I. This example has all the head straps, clear lenses with no cracks, sound pliable rubber backing to the mask body and all the hardware functions as it should. This is the rarest of German as masks as far as I know. $200.00

 

-----------------------------

Item 6699 WW2 Parachute canister for air-dropped supplies

     

     

Those large tube shaped canisters that were used for re-supply via parachute were sectionalized inside with several of these metal cans with sheet metal lid and a unique closure system. This one has a good deal of surface rust but no rust holes. This was found locally in the Ardennes near La Gleize. (Did they try to drop supplies to Peiper's encircled column near La Gleize? I forget) This is about 15 inches in diameter and would make one heck of a lunch box for you construction workers. (Looking at this thing just reminds me that I sell really cool stuff...) $165.00

 

-----------------------------

Item 6700 WW2 Period Jungvolk reader books

These are among the coolest things that the Germans came out with during the war. There was a whole series of these approx 32 page novelettes intended for young people to read about the heroics of the men in uniform. They are not well illustrated inside but the covers more than make up for that. The text is readable. Condition is generally sound with no major damage to any of them. There may be some pencil markings and frayed corners. $18.50 each.

Item 6701 WW2 "Bastogne" road sign

    

      

   

You are going to love this. About 15 years ago I saw the original 1944 era "Bastogne" sign in the historical center just outside of Bastogne. The one in the museum had been taken by officers of the 101st airborne and years after the war donated back to the Bastogne museum. I took measurements and photographs and then got hold of a friend of mine in Prague who had contacts with somebody in an enamelware factory which is the last factory in Europe who still has contracts to make road signs (Europe is switching to the same type of printed steel ones that we use). I had them make this sign to the same specifications; slightly convex at the edges and layered enamel just as the original manufacturer did way back in the pre-war years when these signs were placed on each of the 7 roads leading into Bastogne. My reproduction came out quite good. PLEASE note that the quality of this sign will differ greatly from the modern copies which you may see available out there. They are cheaply printed or painted directly onto flat 10 gauge sheet metal.

I distressed the sign and shot a few holes in it (with an original MP40 and a Garand rifle; just in case you were wondering) and set it out to rust and weather. The end result blows the mind. It looks just like what one would expect to find if one visited Bastogne during or just after the battle. Look at the photos. They tell all. The size is about 14 inches tall by about 40 inches wide.

Whether you are a specialist in US WW2 "screaming eagles" related items...This can be the centerpiece of your war-room. The closest possible thing to the original. Cat not included. $365.00

Item 6689 WW2 MG42 50 rd drum

       

Here is an original MG34/42 50 rd drum; maker marked and dated 1944. It retains about 90% of it's ordinance tan paint. It has not been re-painted/reused by Yugoslavia. The paint is original factory applied; inside and outside. All parts present and functional. $250.00

 

 

-----------------------------

Item 6639 WW2 German pre-war political zeltbahn

     

     

This is a pre-war tan/brown zelt which would have been used by any number of different paramilitary organizations. It has round ink stamps on it near the bottom. I think the most likely use was for the SA or HJ organizations. $95.00

 

 

-----------------------------

Item 6642 WW2 German M31 Bekleidungssacke

   

   

I fell in love with these things when I watched "cross off Iron" and saw Sgt Steiner carrying one when he was coming back from medical leave. It's the standard M31 clothing bag. The leather is a little bit stuff and the cloth has a few small stains. Overall sound and usable. $35.00

 

 

 

-----------------------------

Item 6661 WW2 German gas burn treatment

 

There is one of these orange bakelite bottles inside each gas mask carried in combat. It contains a salve for the treatment of gas burns. It's very hard to find these intact with their labels. $25 each

 

 

-----------------------------

Item 6667 WW2 German flashlight

   

The Germans never developed a handy flashlight like we did. They instead had this over complicated, over engineered contraption. Put a battery into it and it will likely work. SOLD

 

 

-----------------------------

Item 6673 WW2 German combs

     

You can buy one r the other of these combs. The one at left is a wooden one for combing your locks. The one at right is bakelite with fine teeth for ridding yourself of parasites. 100% guaranteed wartime. $25 EACH

 

 

-----------------------------

Item 6675 WW2 German lighter items

   

This is a tin tobacco box that I found which has two lighters and a box of wartime matches. The lighters would work if you install new flints and lighter fluid which is available at any smoke shop. $40 buys it all.

 

 

 

-----------------------------

Item 6624 WW2 German issue soldier's gloves

 

    Size 1

    Size 2

    Size 3

These are original WW2 German wool gloves as issued to soldiers of every branch of service. Good used condition with no moth damage, holes or worn-through spots. They are available in 3 sizes as indicated by the sizing rings knitted into them on the inside. One of the more ubiquitous items of WW2 German kit. Being as they are knit wool, the size is very forgiving. Basically they are small-medium-large. $65.00 your choice of size.

 

 NOTE: They way these gloves were issued is that with the onset of cold weather, everybody in the unit got a pair and wore them through the winter. When spring came, they were collected and stored in a bin with the division supply train. Next year, the bin was brought out again. Maybe it was topped off by a number of new pairs of gloves that came from army procurement; maybe not. Pairs were mated by size; not by condition or exact width and position of the size rings (which do vary; depending on the manufacturers) Unless a soldier was receiving a brand new pair from a bin that contained only gloves fresh from the manufacturer; he was not likely to receive a pair that matched identically. These gloves are not even right-left specific. Each glove will fit either the right or left hand. I have a number of pairs of gloves that came from a single source; a man in Germany who cleans out old estates. Basically, about 50 pounds of these gloves had been found in an old house. I have matched them into pairs as closely as possible. Some are exact matches; some are not. I'll do my best to accommodate you if you need a set which closely matches.

 

 

 

-----------------------------

Item 6628 WW2 German field phone battery

        

Who out there would like to have an original battery (with original label) for their field phone? I know I would want one if I didn't have one. This one is guaranteed to no longer contain electricity so you are going to have to pretend it does. $85.00

 

 

-----------------------------

Item 6596 WW2 German Luftwaffe map case

       

This is a 1940 dated brown leather map case made from pebbled leather. All is sound and supple with intact stitching. Named to a US soldier who apparently captured it. The map case has the celluloid removable map holder inside. Very difficult to find in this condition. $150.00

-----------------------------

Item 6599 WW2 German Luftwaffe property Beer bottles

     

These are original WW2 Beer bottles which are marked as Luftwaffe property. It seems that Hermann Goring saw that his fly-boys had a bit of cheer on hand when they returned from bombing Westminster or Rotterdam... Very nice condition with no cracks or chips. The retainer wires have surface rust but are sound and still hold the sealers tightly. I have four of these that came from a Normandy Flea market last summer. I suppose they were found locally. $75.00 each

 

-----------------------------

Item 6601 WW2 German "Fettesbusche" fat container

   

This is an undated example of the fat container in black bakelite. It is a pre-1945 produced example made from real bakelite and NOT plastic. It opens with a half-twist of the interlocking threads. Just the way it should. No damage or cracks. Perfectly usable for any number of household applications. $60.00

Item 6579 WW2 German signal magazines

A Available

C Available

Filled with articles about Germany's military adventures (for the sake of a "united Europe") as well as articles such as might be found in "Time" or "life" magazine here in the states. These issues are French language. Circulated through the Paris office of signal. I have five of them which I bought in France. Each is complete and slightly used. No torn pages or unpleasant surprises. The covers are just great. $25 each

 

-----------------------------

Item 6578 WW2 German fettebusche

   

  I have to confess that I have never seen a fat container exactly like this one before. It is about twice the height of the normally encountered ones and it opens with two full twists (unlike the half twist required to open the standard model) I am sure it is Pre-1945 as it is definately bakelite and not plastic. The glass insert is present. I believe it to be a pre-war model. $75.00

------------------------------

Item 6468 WW2 German camouflage shelter 1/4 Zeltbahn

        

 Here is a fairly good example with excellent colors and an RB number maker mark. It is missing only 2-3 of it's buttons and some have been replaced so there is a mixture of zinc types. But all buttons are original Zeltbahn buttons. The top grommet is missing. Perfect for use or display. $150.00

Item 6356 WW2 German tool box

        

I do not know exactly what this box is. It is unmarked. It has 80% of it's original ordinance tan paint. I tend to think it is a tool box or accessory box for a wagon or field kitchen. Let the buyer be the judge! $45.00

Item 6094 WW2 German wartime issue cigars

     

These 4 inch long German ration cigars came from an opened box that had about 20 of them inside. It had the German "Steuerfrei" military tax stamp and also was stamped "Nur fur Wehrmacht". Sadly, I do not have the box anymore but you can still get all three of these cigars for your smoking pleasure. Price $25.00 for all 3.

Item 6085 WW2 German soldier's cigarette lighter

        

An ever popular item. This aluminum body lighter has an engraved picture on it of a hunter's cabin. (must have been the sort of thing that a soldier would gaze at longingly while the Soviet artillery was falling on him) It is still completely functional and the metal cap is shiny enough that you can see my reflection it while I took the picture. Perfect for the personnel items display. Price $25.00

Item 6071 WW2 German Water transport bag

       

Here is a fantastically rare item for those of you who are connoisseurs of rare field gear. This is the 20 liter carry bag for potable water. ( Note that I said "potable" not "Portable" but in this case both words apply). It has sound wooden handles and the canvas is in very nice condition. I cannot guarantee that it will still hold water after all these years but that's not why you'd be wanting to buy it anyway is it? (if so, then you'd be best to use canvas waterproofing on the inside) I bought this item in Normandy France some years ago and have recently upgraded it so it can leave my collection. It is not maker marked or dated that I can see. Price $155.00

Item 6068 WW2 German set of 4 matching tent poles

     

Each German soldier was required to carry one of these poles. Four are needed to provide the center support of a zeltbahn tent. So I am selling a complete set of 4. No maker marks or dates but they are matching to each other and are 100% legit. $60.00 for the set.
