Premier Items




Ua221, Excellent Waffen-SS Officer's M43 Cap in gabardine. This cap is a textbook example of the later war quality M43 for officers. It features the Italian gabardine body, with silver aluminum piping and one-piece trapezoidal insignia machine sewn to the front. The lining is grey herringbone rayon, as are the pull tabs. This cap would make a great addition to a later war Waffen-SS Officer's display setup. Super classic in every way. Price includes COA 2550 USD.




Ua220, Larger size Allgemeine-SS NCO's black visor cap. This great cap is a larger size 58 1/2 size, classic style from 1938-39. The body is a high quality whipcord wool, with a nice quality black whipcord material for the cap band. The white piping is a cream yellow tone from gentle age patina. The insignia are the commonly seen Deschler Cupal skull in combination with the feinzinc and silver wash eagle. Both are untouched, never rebadged or altered. The lining is the yellow-tan color chintz, with fully intact sweat shield, gold SS runes in circle, rzm-stamped vulkanfiber bill, full, tight leatherette sweatband; and finally, the proper RZM tag in the interior behind the sweatband. A great looking cap with no issues, showing light, period service wear. Price includes COA 5700 USD.




Ua219, Sharp Waffen-SS enlisted tunic for Pionier. This example of the M43 pattern jacket shows substantial wear but is a fine example of that period of production from the clothing works at KL Dachau. The material is later quality wool with HBT lining that is SS-BW stamped and shows the correct sequence of SS size numbers in the flap. The matching BeVo collar tabs are machine sewn, original untouched, as is the rzm pattern sleeve eagle. A nap and color differential in the shape and location of a cufftitle is visible. A beautiful, service used example that will go nicely in a Waffen-SS combat display. Price includes COA 6800 USD.




Ua217, Outstanding Waffen-SS Officer's M43 Cap. (Detailed pictures added). This cap is a very nice example of a higher quality material (Trikot) wool SS Officer's M43 cap, with white piping. The insignia are both enlisted quality bevo, with the eagle machine applied and the skull hand applied at the front, much in the style of the Clemens Wagner products. These insignia show every sign of originality to the cap from the period--not replaced or bothered. This cap has gentle patina throughout and shows definite service use. The lining is imitation silk, size marked 58. A beautiful example that will go nicely in an advanced Waffen-SS display. Price includes COA 5950 USD.




Ua218, Sharp Waffen-SS Enlisted Schiffchen Mutze. (Detailed pictures added). Excellent example of this iconic enlisted cap, made by Clemens Wagner (see stamping). Light service use, no holes or insect damage. Insignia are hand applied and have 'been on the cap forever' patina; no bothering or replacement. Price includes COA 3450 USD.



Ua216, US Marine Corps Tarawa Combat Trophy Grouping. During my 17 years in Asia, I encountered many US Army and USMC veterans who remained over there due to becoming accustomed to the lifestyle. Among them were veterans of the island campaigns, and among those were ones who would tell their story. The utter brutality of the fighting was in my opinion some of the worst of WWII. This grouping reflects that. The majority of the items are Japanese prayer flags, which represent individual soldiers, all of whom died in order for the GI to bring their flags back. They are exquisite pieces of art, religion and war. The grouping also includes a pair of Japanese binoculars, three Sepuku (suicide knives) and the marine's photo albumns, dog tags and miniature medals...and Japanese teeth. Brutal, historic, artistic. This type of grouping is not often offered this well intact, or connected to such an epic battle. A picker from upstate New York brought this to light recently and it is now offered for sale. Sale includes my guarantee COA 2900 USD.


Ua208, Fine Allgemeine-SS / SS-VT NCO Visor Cap This is an outstanding, untouched example of the SS NCO visor cap in black. The insignia are early quality Deschler skull and eagle, not re-badged. The cap body is whipcord wool construction, with white piping and the center link SS pattern NCO chinstrap. The lining is whitish cream colored silk with SS runes in the circle, and a size 58 stamp under the intact celluloid sweat shield. There is some staining present in the lining, showing moderate service use, but the condition of the lining, sweatband, body and insignia is excellent-plus, RZM stamped and RZM Tagged. The bonus in this example is the owner's hand written tag in the sweat shield slot, which along with the surname in Sutterlin, reads "RuSH 5280" (Race and Settlement Main Office, and the wearer's probable SS Number 5280). As we know, not only was the RuSHA a huge wing of the SS bureaucracy, its personnel also served as part of the Kommandantur of all Konzentrazionslager (as did the Gestapo and others). This cap can be researched, and the researcher may find the surname is something similar to "Orne" or "Arne." A great, collectible cap, in fine shape. Sale includes my guarantee COA SOLD 6900 USD.


Ua214, Excellent, rare Sicherheitsdienst (SD) NCO Tunic. This tunic is consigned from an advanced European collector who obtained it a number of years back from a premier UK collector / dealer. The tunic is a classic early M36 SS-Rock cut in early feldgrau. The boards are sewn-in SD green piped, and the tabs are machine applied to the open collar. The tabs are matching and piped with the black and aluminum striped piping, at a narrower gauge than the thicker striped piping of the collar--a correct, elegant look. The piece was obviously worn in the mid-war period (likely the entire war, given the SD mission), as shown by the SD Diamond and mid war pattern Sleeve eagle being applied directly on the sleeve through the lining. The jacket hangs together very nicely as an original and desirable piece of SS Cloth. (Tunic only--Cap and accessories are sold separately). Sale includes my guarantee / COA 7600 USD.




Ua209, Elegant Waffen-SS Officer's Tunic. This fine tunic is another tailored piece, made of a nice quality mid-war color gabardine. The details of the pockets, lining, and overall construction reflect a high quality piece meant likely for walking out. The tailor's label has a matching name label inside the pocket, which has been partially destroyed (as these mostly were to hide identities of wearers at war's end). This one retains the middle initial "W." and the surname "Schmidt." The piece of the first name that remains appears to be part of a cursive "s." The jacket is dated 1944 on the tag. The exterior consists of a classic droop tail collar of bottle green moleskin. It has a pair of machine applied, matching bullion SS and rank tab for the rank of SS-Obersturmfuhrer. The shoulderboards are white wool piped with black underlay and a single rank pip. The sleeve eagle is a classic textbook and beautiful hand applied bullion example. There are loops on the right breast pocket (DKiG? Foreign award?), and the left breast pocket, plus loops for a short ribbon bar. The tunic is an outstanding example of an SS infantry officer's piece, and would grace any Waffen-SS collection. Price includes COA 11.5K USD.




Ua208, Killer Waffen-SS Totenkopf Officer's Tunic. Here is a very rare, killer M40 style tunic for an SS Untersurmfuhrer of panzer, assigned to the 3rd SS Pz Div ,,Totenkopf." The jacket is a tailored piece, with full lining and aperture for a degen or dolch. The material is a coarser mid-war quality wool, with moderate nap wear, age toning and expected signs of prolonged service wear. The insignia are fine quality machine sewn and undisturbed, matching bullion Totenkopf and Untersturmfuhrer collar tabs, along with a beautiful hand applied textbook bullion SS Officer's sleeve eagle that has been there forever. The slip on Ustuf boards are piped in pink rayon and thoroughly match the insignia assemblage. The left breast pocket has loops for a badge--this silver wound badge was on the tunic, so I left it. This is one of those items you rarely see in a collecting lifetime, and it is in fine, war-used condition. The insignia, application, materials.. all are no-brainer real. This will be a satisfying piece of original unaltered Totenkopf Panzer cloth for the proudest collection. (Pictured crusher not for sale). As with all my items, I guarantee this piece's authenticity for life. Price includes my COA SOLD 12.9k USD.




Ua204, Fine Waffen-SS Officer's M43 Cap. This cap is an outstanding example of an SS contract cap for officers, with single button flap closure and German late war field grey wool. The crown is piped in aluminum for officers. The lining features the greenish rayon material with leatherette half sweatband. Pull tabs are present in the flaps. The insignia from the factory consisted of an eagle and skull, bevo pattern, machine zig-zag applied to the front in stacked fashion. The officer then took a flatwire skull and sewed it on in place of the enlisted skull, making this a striking and cool M43. It will go nicely in an advanced Waffen-SS display. Price includes COA SOLD JS 7350 USD.


Ua130, Textbook, Rare SS-Kriegsberichter Tunic!. This later war tunic is outstanding. It is manufactured at Ravensbruck (Betr.Ra.) and is of a medium- large size. The body is of the captured Italian wool stocks, and the lining is mouse grey satin-like rayon. The shoulderboards are SS pattern, piped in canary yellow for Funker (signals-- This is correct for the Kriegsberichter). The sleeve eagle, and RZM pattern, is zig-zag sewn to the upper left sleeve. An Ostmedaille is sewn at the second buttonhole. The tabs are matching wool felt, with the rank sturmmann (one litze) on the left, and the rarer cross-hatched machine embroidered runic tab on the right. These are machine applied. Below the sleeve eagle is the hand applied rank chevron of ss-sturmmann. Below that is a hand-applied RZM pattern SS-KB-ABT (SS-Kriegsberichter Abteilung) cuffband, showing every appearance of period application -- as are the rest of the insignia. A KB tunic in this configuration, size and condition is very difficult to come by. All in all, a great piece. Full SS contract, another jewel for the specialty SS collection! Sale includes COA 8200 USD.




Ua90, Very Rare SS-VT ,Deutschland' SS-Mann's M37 Tunic. Collectors, we don't often see an M37 for sale, in fact almost never. They are rare to the point that there are not more than a handful in worldwide in collections. (At the 2019 Show of Shows, one of these appeared, was priced at a much more premium level, and quickly sold). Here at offer is a noted European collector's stunning ,Deutschland' piece, which he is letting go of to acquire another rare item. The tunic is the classic (see diagram) M37, type 1, with a lining similar to the type 1 Earth Grey pictured in the Beaver Book. The fabric is the first type early Field Grey color used by the SS. The outside style is the same generally on all M37s, with 4 front buttons, hidden 5th button and loop under the collar, and mildly angled slash lower pockets. Across the spectrum of known examples of M37s, including the French collectors' publication that pictures three examples found in a barn in the early/mid '90s, the outer appearance is the same, but there are different lining styles. These tunics were new to the SS as a force, and must have undergone subtle changes in the lining and fittings as they were being issued, worn and evaluated for practicality by the soldiers. Many examples of the M37 are found stripped or missing a badge here or there. The consignor reports that this example features restored original insignia, applied with great care and attention to detail, except for the sleeve eagle, which appears original to the tunic and never removed. There is light nap present on the tunic, and only moderate wear overall. The price reflects the faithful restoration; but also reflects the utter rarity of a decent condition M37 SS Tunic and these killer rare insignia. (Purchaser will be privy to the chain of ownership and will not be disappointed at whose collection it came from). Don't miss this one, VT collectors! (period photo courtesy of consignor) Sale includes COA 15,500 USD.




Ua127, Phenomenally Rare SS-VT Model 40 NCO's Crusher Cap These rare caps do not grow on trees, and especially as mint and correct a specimen as this one. The cap is a textbook M40 Crusher (as noted by Mr. Dave Delich in his LOA appraisal of this cap), made of fine whipcord wool and lined with the correct orange colored chintz most often encountered in these caps. The lining is simply, correctly size marked 57, with no sweat shield, which is also a proper configuration for this kind of cap. The folds as viewed behind the sweatband are tacked in place, untouched and without any extra stitch holes or other signs of tampering. (The eagle and skull pins are visible and only put through once). The sweatband is leather and has vent holes in the front. The outer body is whipcord feldgrau wool as mentioned, with the correct black NCO quality badgecloth band and white wool piping for trim. There are no moth holes or other damage, just one very minor snag, visible on the 8 o'clock area on the top of the cap. The inisgnia are silver wash feinzinc; the skull an Overhoff & Cie by design appearance. This cap is a rare, elegant beauty, authenticated by the premier name in SS cloth. It will grace the best VT collection out there. Price includes COA SOLD 24k USD.



Ua125, SS NCO Degen. Here is a solid example of an SS NCO Degen, from an old collection and out for sale for the first time in many years. The overall condition is very good--nice and tight with a minty blade. The sword will be sold without the portapee. Price includes COA 2750 USD.



Ua126, Police NCO Degen. This is a pretty decent example of a police degen, made by Puma. The overall condition is good, with some pitting to the blade. The fittings are tight and the piece presents well. An excellent display enhancer. Price includes COA 925 USD.



Ua123, Phenomenal SS-Panzer Officer's Private Purchase Wrap. This fine tunic is from one of the best known collections globally. It has been fully vetted by Dave D. and has his written certification. The piece is privately made by the firm "M. Natzmer, Strassburg, 1944." The body of the wrap is a fine quality, lightweight but robust black trikot wool with black silk lining. The sleeves are lined with white silk / black polka-dot pattern material, with false button cuffs. The collar is piped in heavier gauge officer aluminum twist piping, with the tabs having the thinner officer piping at their edges. The tabs feature the later war machine embroidered runes on felt, machine sewn; and an Obersturmfuhrer rank tab with silver wash zinc later war pips and one litze, also machine sewn. The sleeve eagle is an officer quality bullion hand embroidered eagle, tailor hand applied to the sleeve. The lower left sleeve shows faint evidence of a cuffband, and with a flashlight shone from inside, the stitch line is evident. The shoulder boards are classic subdued officer braid, black underlaid and narrow tongued. The piping is pink and there is a correct size zinc pip on each strap denoting SS-Ostuf. They are slip ons, with screw button attachments. The details of this fine wrapper are carefully displayed in the pictures. Collectors don't often encounter this quality of officer wrapper as they are not widely availble in this condition and significance. Price includes COA SOLD 19.5k USD.




Ua122, Excellent Waffen-SS Artillery / StuG Officer's Visor Cap. This cap is an unmarked (kleiderkasse) artillery piped visor cap circa 1940. The upper is fine doeskin piped in red wool. There are a couple of moth nips on the piping (see picture). The cap band is a good quality velvet, piped with slightly narrower red wool piping, which is correct. The interior is light grey silk with sweatshield mostly present, with some cracks. There is some yellow staining to the silk fabric, possibly sweat, hair tonic- indicating some moderate service wear. The sweatband is pressed paper and has one tear and one three-stitch separation with the edge of the visor juncture on the left (see pictures). The chincord and pebbled buttons are the earlier quality commensurate with the apparent manufacture period of the cap. The cap was badged with a metal skull and a cloth eagle, presumably flatwire. There are stitches remaining along the edges of the outline of the eagle. The skull provided with this cap is an excellent Zimmermann (note pictures of markings). The skull comes with the hat as part of the sale, not separately. The cap is nearly mint, except for moth foraging of the nap around the top and the front. A lovely example and displays very well. Price includes COA 9200 USD.



UA78 Outstanding SS-Totenkopfverband Fuhrer's Mantel. This is a mint, rare and stunning example of SS-TV cloth; a VA-SS 1939 issued mantel in an M36 pattern, badged for a totenkopf Ostuf. Well marked, with maker and VA issue stamp; beautiful matching RZM-SS cottage industry hand embroidered skull and rank tabs (pips have the proper ss-rzm dimple in the center), period applied and unaltered. The sleeve eagle is an early SS-VT style, much favored by the hard core SS officers of the early war period. It is neatly zig-zag affixed to the sleeve. The right sleeve has the feldgrau version of the 'ehrenwinkel' affixed by hand. The boards are period unaltered SS pattern Ostuf of infanterie, with white piping and black underlay. They have the correct 15mm gilt pips. The buttons are "Motz" which I have observed on other SS contract cloth pieces. Sword aperture is present in the lower left. This mantel has been perfectly cared for and has no flaws. This Mantel has literally an SS insignia collection worth of fine examples, such as the classic factory applied early VT style sleeve eagle, matching set of early fine quality bullion collar tabs, and VA marks. This is not something you can find at most shows, much less popping out of collections like this. Therefore, a chance to own a VA-SS issue marked 'textbook' SS piece is attractive. Again, Early Cloth Collectors, you just don't see these untouched like this! Price includes COA 14.5K USD.



UA59 Sharp Waffen-SS Officers' Parade Belt Ensemble This belt is in very fine condition, showing little wear. There is only the mildest signs of age, but no damage, no oxidation, and nothing missing. The RZM tag is still affixed to the underside of the inner tongue. The size mark is 110 cm. Beautiful belt! COA will accompany sale SOLD 2950 USD.




Ua114, Beautiful Heer Panzer Schutze Uniform. This Heer Panzer matching jacket and trousers set was purchased by the consignor from The Ruptured Duck about a dozen years ago (paperwork accompanys). The typical Heer cut jacket, 1942 vintage, features minty, earlier quality materials and construction. The wool body is fine, with very little sign of any mothing. The buttons are dark matte grey and the interior is light tan cotton. The boards are sewn down from top to bottom, and sewn in. This was a popular way to eliminate snags while getting in and out of the tight spaces of armored vehicles. As a likely walking out uniform, this feature is more swag than utility (something soldiers everywhere do!). The tabs feature piping in "Russian Braid," which consists of using pink soutache cord and sewing it directly to the collar around the tabs. The tabs are machined, as is the breast eagle. The eagle features three types of treatment in application--stitch across the top then flip down; stitch around the wings by machine, then hand sew the swastika roundel. Simply outstanding treatment of all the insignia on this wrapper! The trousers are a match in materials and manufacture. They feature the single button pocket flap characteristic of Heer cut. They are mint and well marked. The heft, gauge, look and feel of the trousers and wrapper wool are one and the same, a real match. Topping off the ensemble are a lovely minty M43 cap, well marked and with the insignia "T-sewn" like a bergmutze. A nice size 57. The belt is a nice condition and well marked Heer. A pair of original WWII photos accompany this set as nice to haves, but are not photos of the owner of the uniform. All in all, this is one of the nicest original outfits I have seen in a while. Price includes COA HOLD JS 12k USD.



Ua115, Fine, Rare Heer Panzer Beret. This beret was also purchased from the Ruptured Duck by the consigner a decade or more ago (paperwork accompanys). I am showing the salient features of the cover, insignia and crash helmet without opening and re-opening each component of this extremely rare piece of headgear (to avoid ruin). Under the sweatband, according to the ruptured duck paperwork, is the inscription: "Wilhelm Wethekam, Dresden 21 F-39" (Frankfurt issue depot, '39). The condition is superb considering this piece is 80 years old. I have handled under a dozen SS and Heer berets, and this one is by far one of the two best anywhere. For the advanced Heer Panzer Collection. Price includes COA 8750 USD.




Ua100, Elegant and Rare, "SS-N" Fuhrer's Mantel. This is a seldom encountered and excellent example of a Mantel for an SS-Hstuf, from the SS-Nurnberg Regiment (SS-N had some notable members, including Christian Tychsen, Sepp Thaler, Adolf Ax, and others). The SS-N tab shows unaltered machine application from the period. The rank tab shows removal, possibly to upgrade the rank with the additional litze for SS-Hstuf, then hand-tacked back into place. This was not uncommon. There is an RZM cloth tag under the shoulderboard. The consignor reports the Aguilette came with the mantel; it is the Heer pattern. The mantel shows minor age and the left shoulder seam has separated (this can be likely conserved by a knowledgeable professional). Full lining, unaltered insignia, excellent condition throughout. Most collections do not have this example; a rare, correct and elegant piece of SS history (Officers such as Christian Tychsen were in SS-N as young officers). Sale includes COA 14,300 USD.



UA118 LAH Berghof Guard Detachment Officer Photos. These historic original, period marked photos are of an SS-Ostubaf whose uniforms show a very interesting progression of insignia and type--excellent for technical and historic reference. For example, one portrait has him with a Heer bullion officer's breast eagle as his sleeve eagle. Another shows him in the officer's VT-style M36 feldgrau rock, with low-peaked VT officer's visor cap and cross strap. Some excellent period photos for the sammler! Price includes COA 590 USD.




Ua92, 27" Pressed Paper National Eagle, Exceedingly Rare. This eagle is an assemblable 3 piece decoration made of pressed paper and finished in silver leaf on the outward side. The details are excellent and the condition is quite good considering its age. For the advanced eagle collector, an iconic finishing piece. Price includes COA SOLD 1400 USD.







Ua86, P44 Erbsentarn 4 Pocket Tunic in Polished Cotton--Dachau Souvenir. The last remnants of the Dachau grouping including the helmet and box (see helmets page) consist of this tunic and issue of "Signal" magazine, which were both souvenired at Dachau by the same GI, along with the other items listed on the box cover. This piece carries that provenance. The jacket is a very small size, and features polished cotton material, and construction characteristics perfectly commensurate with typical Dachau / KL manufactured items of clothing, right down to the treatment of the bandage pouch, armpit lining, collar underneath, and buttons. The buttons are the earlier tropical colored molded buttons, dated '42. There are no size or other markings visible. Interestingly, the accompanying issue of Signal has an autumn '44 article called "Crack Babies," which tells the story of the HJ Division in their own words and features among others, the familiar images of some very small adolescent boys participating in battle. This jacket is interesting, mint and an historic piece of Dachau SS military production, appropriate for the historical SS combat display. Price includes COA HOLD 4k USD.





SS Items


Ua210 Waffen-SS Second Pattern Blurred-Edge Smock. This Waffen-SS Camouflage Smock is a very good condition example that shows substantial service use and wear. The camo pattern is the scarcer 'blurred edge.' The spring side shows sun and weather fading to the colors, but still retains strength to the material. There are minor field repairs and some snags. The areas where the camouflage loops existed but were removed can still be seen, and are obviously period modifications due to the commensurate patina and fading. The autum side shows slightly more vivid colors, which also show some weathering and fading. The pocke flaps show very vivid colors underneath on each side. The edging of the collar and neck are overprinted plain tree swatches. All in all a very solid example that would make a great combat SS Grenadier display. Sale includes COA 7550 USD.



Ua203 Waffen-SS Fez Taken From Surrenduring Soldier. This fez was taken by a US Army Major, from a surrenduring Waffen-SS trooper at the end of the war. See notarized vet letter from 1971, below. The fez is about a size 58 and shows light service wear. No flaws, only some very light moth nips to show age. A great, vet provenanced piece! Sale includes COA 1700 USD.



Ua95, Scarce, Combat Used Waffen-SS M40 Wendtarnhemd in Palm Pattern. Here is a decent condition, well-worn M40 SS Palm Pattern smock. Consignor has owned it for 7 years having obtained it from a US collector. The spring side shows a slight amount more fading than the autumn side, with repairs in several places including the tops of both pockets. The cuffs were removed and the material sewn under. A drawstring appears added to the wasteband. The neck closure lace is replaced. Overall this piece shows a lot of field use, but is a solid displayer with early W-SS history. Sale includes COA 8.6K USD.



UA 129 Outstanding Waffen-SS ,,Der Spiess.'' This collector-consigned piece is an excellent and handsome example of a service used senior NCO's tunic. The rank is SS-Hauptscharfuhrer and the two strips on the sleeves denote his status as the First Sergeant, or ,Der Spiess.' The tunic is a tailored piece, made of fine officer quality trikot wool and outfitted with an officer's style droop tail collar, which really accents the classy appearance. The collar tabs are wool based, NCO bullion embroidered SS runic tab and matching rank tab with one litze and two later style zinc pips--both are perfectly period applied and show no signs of having been off or replaced. The artillery-piped boards are sewn in nicely, and period. They bear the full circumference tresse and two pips, with a number "6" denoting the 6th SS Gebirgs ,Nord' Artillery Regiment. The sleeve eagle is sewn right through the sleeve, zig-zag style, and while unorthodox and possibly postwar re-applied, it is done in a manner very much like period stitching. With a bright flashlight from inside, I see only the stitch line of the eagle that is on it. Given the unorthodox method of application of the eagle, I will err on the side of caution and consider it potentially re-applied. The lower sleeves show field tailoring of the cuff edges, possibly due to wear. The two double tresse strips are applied onto a strip of field grey cloth, then applied to the sleeve on each side. They are integrated into the seam of the cuff on each sleeve. The tresse is white, SS pattern, as is the tresse on the boards and collar. As for awards, the left breast pocket is looped for two badges. There is a faded (except for the button overlap) iron cross second class ribbon in the buttonhole. All in all a textbook SS NCO's walking-out style tunic, with a very sharp appearance, and from a rarer unit. Price includes COA 6400 USD.



UA131 Waffen-SS Helmet Cover. This is a mint Oakleaf pattern second model helmet cover, will fit size 64 slightly loosely, good on a 66. Excellent cover, textbook in every way. Price includes COA SOLD 5950 USD.



UA128 Fine SS-VT / Waffen-SS NCO Visor Cap. This cap is a primo example of a late VT period / early Waffen period NCO visor, from the above 'Spiess' collector. The materials are the finer early quality whipcord wool, with the moleskin felt cap band. The white wool piping is the correct weave (some call basket-weave). The interior of the cap is furnished in the light orange colored chintz, with celluloid sweat shield. The sweat shield contains the soldier's name tag. Also present is a size 54 1/2 size mark. The leatherette sweat band is fully intact with no tears. Behind the band can be seen a perfectly untouched set of skull and eagle prongs. Also visible is the uninterrupted, unmolested tacking of the lining in the inner circumference. The insignia are classic Deschler (skull is deschler) feinzinc with silver wash. The insignia are not played with and have that never been removed look. The SS style chinstrap bears SS / RZM markings in ink on the underside. The outside of the visor shows fine age crazing. There are some light insect chews under the rear overhang at the junction of the cap band (see picture). The hat presents very majestically and maintains its issue form, showing very light use. A keeper! Price includes COA HOLD MS 5800 USD.



Wsc1 & Wsc2, Mint Unissued Waffen-SS Camouflage Helmet Covers. These are mint, unissued Oakleaf A camouflage pattern W-SS second model helmet covers, both in mint condition and appear to be from the same batch. They both have reinforced visors and the clips are blackened aluminum with correct peening and treatment. The springs are strong and the spring sleeves have the pull through tabs sewn across and cropped at the top of the sleeve. The material is the proper gauge for helmet covers, and has that "crackly" sound when handled. You guys know what I mean. The thread is the correct gauge and shows the correct treatment of the seams. Moreover, the stitch length and number of stitches per inch varies correctly, as per the antiquated nature of the machinery used to make these in the wartime. One of them bears the numeric designation of size (2) underneath the 1944 date in reddish-purple ink. Both outstanding covers, same size, same mint condition. Price includes COA Unmarked Cover (Wsc1), 6000 USD; Marked cover (Wsc2), 6100 USD.




Ua99, Mint SS-VT / Allg-SS Side Cap. This is a nice, mint and completely correct black side cap for the SS-VT / Waffen-SS. Size 57 marked, with RZM label and VA Stamp. Deschler skull button to the front, and VT style triangular embroidered eagle to the side--all factory applied and untouched. Beautiful Example! Price includes COA 3100 USD.



Ua121, Historic and Desirable WWI KIA German Pilot's Grouping. One of the nicest and most impactful items I've handled, this is a set of four items taken from a downed German pilot by an Australian (AIF) Captain named "J.S" or "J. P." Duffy. Duffy obtained the items on the scene of the crash on 23 April 1918, ( coincidentally just two days after the death of Freihr. Manfred von Richthofen). This set was originally thought to be the property of an English Captain, but the AIF denotes the Australians, who of course were part of the commonwealth forces fighting in France at that time. Interestingly, gunner Popkins, and Aussie aerial gunner of the AIF, was the one who shot down von Richthofen in the Australian sector of the lines, using a swivel mounted .303 Lewis gun. How this pertains to this grouping is that during that campaign of April 1918, here is another German pilot, whose items at his crash site had fallen into Australian hands. This Captain Duffy could be researched, as well as the pilot himself. A roster of downed German pilots for 23 April is almost certainly available in multiple archives, and from there it becomes a matter of looking at files for commensurate awards. Photographs may even exist. Another avenue is the watch serial number, checked against records from that maker-- a bit more far-fetch and elusive method, but it may well work out. Below is the grouping itself, encased in a case that Capt. Duffy had specially made for these items, 100 years ago. The EKI is well marked and vaulted. The pilot's badge is also nicely marked and in good condition, as is the wound badge. The watch is the centerpiece, and while the face shows some damage (impact, perhaps?), the markings and mechanics are complete and excellent. This is and exceptional grouping, with particular history to a very exciting period in the latter stages of the Great War. A great find for the WWI aviation collector! Feel free to email me to provide comments, or for more information, including the auction info the original collector provided with this grouping. Price includes COA HOLD 5k USD.




Ua101, Waffen-SS Officer's Overseas Cap, by Clemens Wagner. This cap is a fine example of an SS Officer's overseas cap, by the famed maker Clemens Wagner. The hallmarks of the Wagner caps often include a bevo enlisted eagle paired with a flatwire skull, hand applied. The piping on this variety is normally white for SS-Standartenfuhrer and below. The lining is lime green with the oval Clemens Wagner logo and date (illegible). The size is 55. The only insect damage consists of a chew in the fabric right alongside the skull (see picture), which has popped a few stitches on the left jaw and side. That is best left untouched as it does not detract. A great cap for the 1940-42 period SS-Officer display. Price includes COA SOLD CZ 4700 USD.



Ua200 Waffen-SS Maroon Fez. Here is another textbook example of a mint Dachau manufactured / acquired Fez. The insignia are textbook straight-line stitched and are the enlisted BeVo type. The tassel is in great shape and is correctly factory tacked down in a line in order to hold it in placce. The sweatband is a light tan leatherette. The size marking '58' is in white ink. Nice larger size Fez. Sale includes COA SOLD 1250 USD.

The sweatband shows high quality workmanship similar to ErEl or Pekuro. The insignia are fine and show wear commensurate with the age of the cap, but do not match. Price includes COA 6200 USD.




Ua87, Historic LAH Photo Albumns, Mohnke-Signed Promo Document. This photo albumn grouping belonged to an enlisted member of the LAH, who was in the early campaigns prior to being selected to serve on the Fuhrer's security detatchment at the Berghof. A couple of photos feature this individual in the same picture as AH himself. Outstanding pictures of everyday life in training, some great combat photos in rare camo patterns, excellent weapons photos, etc. Early promotion document signed by Wilhelm Mohnke.

The tunic is missing one button but is otherwise complete and sharp. Price with COA 4.5K USD.

Ua215, Rare, Excellent General Goring Senior NCO Tunic. This piece is a consignment, owned by one collector for over 30 years. It has been well curated and is in fine condition. The jacket is a 1939 dated m36 style open collar construction, with french cuffs, belt hooks and a correct, period applied variety of insignia. The markings are crisp and visible. The only faint marking is the LBA stamp, just visible above the 'Wachgarnitur; stamp. The tabs are machine applied, while the eagle and exquisite 'General Goring' cuffband are hand applied. Excellent, untouched, early war walking out dress with a lot of historic Luftwaffe appeal. Price includes my lifetime COA 6000 USD.

It is unmarked but finely made in period correct style and construct. It shows storage age commensurate with the WWII period as well. It was reportedly brought back by a General Homer, whose information is on the display tag from when he donated this uniform to a County Historical Museum in New Mexico.

I have left this piece in the frame for the pictures, but the rear glass can be easily removed with no damage to the pennant as it is free floating mounted. The high-quality dual sided frame enables excellent, instant displaying of this piece. This is a superb piece of embroidery and overall workmanship, and would be a fine capstone to a high ranking Luftwaffe ensemble. Price includes my COA. 3850 USD.




UA28 Luftwaffe Pilot Grouping--Benno Hecker This grouping to a Luft Flieger was denazified by the pilot himself, who continued to keep his belongings well after the war.
