German WW1/WW2 Militaria

      Many of the items listed here are from a collector who has decided to sell off his collection acquired over several decades. Many very fine and rare pieces are included, as well as some reproduction items clearly identified as such. These are mainly hats obtained to complete a comprehensive collection of German military headgear. If there is any doubt at all about an item, we will identify that fact and sell it as a reproduction.

      This is an opportunity to get some very scarce items, along with many in superior condition. We expect to be adding many more uniform items, including German Kreigsmarine Admiral uniforms, UBoat leathers, Army overcoats, and lots more headgear plus many other items as the collector releases them to the market.

SMM1621 - MOUNTAIN TROOP SLEEVE EDELWEISS. BACKGROUND: On May 2ND 1939 the Oberkommando des Heeres, (Army High Command), authorized wear of a distinctive Edelweiss tradition badge by Mountain Troop personnel to be worn on the upper right sleeve of the service, dress and field uniforms. Design of the badge was based on a badge worn by the WWI German Alpine Corps. On introduction the badge was on a blue/green badge cloth base, but in early 1940 this was altered to a field-gray wool base. Of Note: A metal edelweiss with stem was designed for wear on the mountain cap and a stemless edelweiss was authorized for wear on the visor cap. Original regulations, unsuccessfully, dictated the edelweiss's were to be removed from wear if the personnel were transferred out of a Mountain Troop unit. On November 12TH 1944 regulations were altered to permitted continued wear of the edelweiss after transfer out of a Mountain Troop unit as long as the individual had combat experience with the Mountain Troops.

Pre-1940 pattern, vertically oval woven blue/green rayon base with a machine woven edelweiss with thirteen irregular white petals, an eight bulb, yellow stamen and dual green leaves and stem. The edelweiss is encompassed with a silvery/gray mountaineer rope border, with a white piton to the top center. The insignia is still on its original blue/green rayon factory roll and is in overall excellent, condition. Recently acquired with a group of other WWII souvenirs from a retired WWII veteran. $75.00 (View Picture)

SMM1616 - German WWII Pebbled Aluminum RAD Enlisted Buckle. (Koppelschloß) The basis of the RAD, Reichsarbeitsdienst, (National Labour Service), dates back, at least, to 1929 with the formation of the AAD (Anhalt Arbeitsdienst) and the FAD-B (Freiwillingen Arbeitsdienst-Bayern), Shortly after Hitler’s appointment as Chancellor, (January 1933) the NSDAP consolidated these, and other labor organizations into the NSAD (Nationalsozialist Arbeitsdienst), a national labor service. On June 26TH 1935 the NSAD was re-designated RAD. Originally personnel serving with RAD wore a variety of earlier FAD/NSAD belt buckles until February 15TH 1936 when new pattern belt buckles for Officer’s and EM/NCO’s were introduced to provided uniformity in dress.
Early, injection molded, natural aluminum box buckle with pebbled base field and circular, embossed central motif. Central motif features five highly embossed sheaths of wheat encompassing an embossed inverted spade head with high relief canted swastika on a subtlety textured, domed central field. Buckle shows minor chafe wear which has resulted in lost detailing. Reverse of buckle is a mirror image of obverse. Reverse has the integral, raised, slotted buckle catch and separate prong bar and prongs all intact. A beautiful buckle in excellent condition. Recently acquired with a group of other WWII souvenirs from a retired WWII veteran. $125.00 (View Picture)

Miscellaneous Treasures

**NEW ADDITION** 22050 ORIGINAL WW2 GERMAN BOX OF 16 ROUNDS 9mm LUGER AMMUNITION DATED 1944 (mog 17) - Full box, with nice clean label, still sealed. This has been wrapped in plastic fir display Since the box is sealed we cannot tell the headstamp, but it is surely steel case with something like dnh St+ and (month) 6 and (year) 43 (date cases were made, not date of loading). The Germans used 16 round boxes to avoid waste from having left over rounds from 20 or 50 round boxes. The P-08 Luger and P-38 pistols both had 8 round magazines, and the MP-38 or MP-40 submachine guns used 32 round magazines, so the 16 round boxes made a lot of sense. Nice clean box, getting hard to find. $35.00 (View Picture)

13258 WW2 GERMAN PARATROOP GRAVITY KNIFE - This is the second model with the small square tab which can be pushed to allow the cap with the arrow to slide off and then one handle can be pivoted away to open it for cleaning. Overall used good-very good condition with the small loop intact and the release trigger and locking mechanism working properly. Unmarked except for a serial number on the latch trigger, and the spike marked RB. NR. 0/0561/0019 with letter R on the reverse side. Very little finish left on the outside, and grips are worn, but still an average or better example. These were issued to paratroops (Fallschirmjaegers) and also to Luftwaffe personnel as they could be opened with one hand when needed to cut free from a parachute or other survival tasks. Scarce item rarely found any more. $525.00 (View Picture)

SMA2410 Stock - German/Czech G33/44 Rifle. - We have located a rare original stock for the G33/40. So if you`ve had a barreled action sitting in a closet now you can complete your rifle.

When the Nazis were given the western end of Czechoslovakia in the fall of 1938 the received the huge Skoda arms works which had made rifle for the Czech army, including a short barreled carbine called the Cz 33 carbine. The Germans took this handy little carbine over, called it the G33/40 and issued it to its mountain troops. The only change was the addition of a metal plate on the left side of the butt to protect the wood from the crampons fitted to the mountain troops boots. The G33/44 carbines are eagerly sought after by collectors and the prices have escalated in the last few years.

This stock is for a G33/40 carbine. It made from walnut, has some use dings, and the linseed oil finish has darkened, but the wood is intact as is the metal protective plate and the butt plate. $495.00 (View Picture)

19576 WWII German M1930(?) Luftschutz Gas Mask and metal carrying canister - Drager was (and still is) a leader maker of chemical masks and related items. This is (probably) one of the several variations of the Model 1930 Gas Mask adopted by the Germans. Some were for military issue, and others, like this, were for the quasi-military Luftschutz personnel. Overall good-very good condition with good markings as shown in the photos. Canister has all the straps and most of the original paint. No waffenamts or RZm marks noted, but we did not unroll the mask to look as it is a pain to get it stuffed back into the canister once opened. There are people who collect gas masks and in researching this we noted that there are an unbelievable variety of gas masks out there, so it might be a varied, and inexpensive field to specialize in. $125.00 (View Picture)

17298 GERMAN RIFLE GRENADE FOR K98K MAUSER (INERT) - Used with the "Gewehrgranatgerat (G Gr K98k)" and discussed in detail on Richard Law's "Backbone of the Wehrmacht" on pages 333-335. These were adopted in 1942 and had a rear section which clamps to the barrel of the rifle, and a rifled barrel section which screws into the other. The grenade has a pre-engraved rotating band and is loaded from the muzzle, and launched with a special blank cartridge. The launchers are extremely scarce and I have only seen 2 or 3 in the last 10 years. The grenades are even scarcer! This is in badly rusted and pitted relic condition, and the grenade has been professionally deactivated so there are no explosive components. (NOTE: this cannot be sold or shipped to places run by idiots like Kalifornia, New York, Massachusetts or any other city or state where prohibited.) $75.00 (View Picture)

SMEW1633 - Sword Hanger German WW2 (?). This hanger was included with a collection of captured German and Italian items that we purchase from a retired WW2 vetern. It is made of gold wire on a gold cloth background with a blue stripe running down the middle and back borders. Hanger is about 45 inches long and adjustable with silver (probably nickel plated) buckles and clips on both ends. Hanger is in excellent condition with no tears, holes or fraying of the fabric and no rust or damage to any of the metal hardware. $125.00 (View Picture)

23008 SCARCE WW2 GERMAN "FLAKHELFER" HITLER YOUTH FIELD VISOR CAP -
This is a great example of the HJ visored field cap for winter, which is actually more akin to the Luftwaffe Bergmütze than to a Model 1943, as the HJ cap and the Bergmütze both have (usually) a single-button skirt arm (rounded tip), and a relatively short, stubby visor (two prime characteristics of the Bergmütze). This cap is made of dark bluish-grey (Luftwaffe Fliegerblau color), softly napped wool and was probably worn by FlaK helpers. The exterior is in very good condition, showing hardly any use. The insignia is a machine woven (BeVo) HJ diamond in red, white and black thread. The skirt arms have rounded ends, and there is one single small pebble-surfaced metal button painted a dark grayish-blue. The interior of this size 58 marked cap is quilted with the top quilting forming a diamond pattern. The liner is a grayish rayon. The interior is very well marked, starting with a number (only partly legible) and below this in a box, an R.B. Nr.: “0 /2009 / 0004”. Below this on the left is the size, which in this case is 58. The date is on the right (“44”). A great example of a cap for HJ boys assigned as assistants to FlaK batteries. More on the Flkhelfers at http://www.militaryheadgear.com/items/74 In the early months of 1943, Allied air raids began to venture deeper and deeper into Germany. The German Army desperately needed more soldiers and anti-aircraft crews. To meet the rising needs, the Nazis created the “youngest [soldiers] of World War II.” Known as flakhelfer (flak aide) or Luftwaffenhelfer (Air Force aide), male and female teenagers of Germany were made soldiers overnight as part of an anti-aircraft program. On January 26, 1943, Hermann Göring, supreme commander of the German Luftwaffe, plotted with Hitler Youth leader Artur Axmann to conscript boys age fifteen to seventeen into the program (later, girls age sixteen to eighteen were drafted to serve). These boys and girls were pulled out of the classroom and placed in anti-aircraft installations all over Germany. Flakhelfer recruits received four weeks of training from the Luftwaffe before they were allowed to operate guns. During this training they learned how to handle ammunition, load and fire the guns, find enemy aircraft with radar and searchlights, recognize code sequences, and even repair the equipment. The first flakhelfer squads experienced combat in February 1943. Their services “represented the first time in the history of the Third Reich that boys as young as fifteen were fighting as soldiers in active combat.” $275.00 (View Picture)

SMA2427 Excellent Early Brown WWII German P.08 (Luger) Holster Dated 1938. - Holster is stamped on back with the German WW-II Heerswaffenamt inspector's mark eagle over ``WaA523``, the year of manufacture (1938) and the manufacturers name (A.FIACHER/GUTTSTADT). The pleasing dark brown finish of the holster would rate about 90 - 95% with some wear on the flap. The flap has a small hole in one corner. The stitching is still white, this indicates that the holster is in original condition and has not been ``touched up`` or polished with shoe polish. The leather including the flap and buckle strap is supple and in good condition. Overall a very nice holster, complete and in original condition. Early Nazi period holsters like this with brown instead of black finish are extremely hard to find. $350.00 (View Picture)
