Premier Items

 

 

Ua133, Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler Untersturmfuhrer's Tunic and Trousers. This is an exquisite tunic and trousers set, showing good service wear and badged to an artillery Ustuf. of the LAH. The body is Italian gabardine, with badgecloth droop tail collar with single clasp closure. There are five feldgrau buttons at front closure, and at each pocket flap. The French cuffs show tailor reinforcement zig-zag stitching at the edges, where they often wear out from use. The lining is also tailor repaired, but the lining of both sleeves has been removed. The pockets are lined with blue and white striped SS pillow ticking-- a very cool touch. The sleeve eagle is a never removed, beautiful and correct bullion example, hand applied. The LAH officer's bullion cufftitle is simply beautiful, one of the finest original bullion examples I've seen. It shows gentle age and some fade patina matching the jacket material, and has every indication of being on the tunic since the period. The sewn-in boards are red-piped in rayon, and feature LAH cyphers that do not have the filled lower left loop, indicating they are non-period made replacements. The Bullion SS runic tab and three pip Ustuf rank tab are perfectly, period machine sewn on, as can be seen in the pictures. The trousers are a perfect match in materials and condition, and like the tunic, are free of any holes or damage. They do have some tailor alterations in the crotch area. All buttons, loops and closures are present and in fine condition. This outstanding piece was snagged from the same advanced collection the Crusher Cap came out of. If the cyphers were correct, the price would be much higher. Price includes my lifetime COA 13.8k 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 original portapee was added, appropriately complementing this Degen. Price includes COA 3100 USD.

 

 

Ua124, Excellent SS Chained Dagger. From the same collection, here is a correct SS Chained Dagger. Overall the piece is tight, appears never to have been taken apart or cleaned. There are runner marks on the blade from normal in and out, otherwise no problems. The chain is marked (hard to get a good picture of). This is a nice chance to own a crisp chained dagger at a reasonable price. Price includes COA SOLD 5000 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 HOLD 19.5k 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.

 

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 read wool piping, as many were. 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 great looker and displays very well. Price includes COA 9500 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 3K 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 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 8850 USD.

 

 

Ua116, Fabulous, Unissued Late War Waffen-SS Assault Wrapper. This wrapper, purchased from a very notable collection, is flat mint unissued, with the exception of some moth tracking damage to the underside of the left collar, and a nail hole moth bite in the upper center back. The jacket is late quality German wool, with captured Italian air force herringbone lining (the bluish color, sometimes seen in SS bekleidungs). The desired features of a mint wrap are displayed on this piece; the inner shoulder lining buckram, factory applied eagle as the only insignia; provisions for boards, and correct fonts for the markings (including KL Ravensbruck BW paper issue tag still on the sleeve!). The bevo sleeve eagle is superb, and textbook applied. The belt hanger darts in the back seams still have the sewing machine thread unclipped. Literally a mint piece, grabbed from issue stocks and souvenired. Truly a stunning wrapper for the stug collectors. It is worth noting that this wrap is carefully vetted (carefully gone over at the SOS in person, by three of the best known cloth collectors in the hobby-- all of whom agreed that while the tag and lining are marked Bet.Ra, missing the r, they were in agreement it is an original latest war-produced specimen.) In hand, it is a remarkable piece and I will guarantee your 100% satisfaction--as on every item on this site. Complete history / provenance (and letter of vetting) of the piece will be provided to the buyer. Price includes COA 8950 USD.

 

 

 

 

Ua100, Beautiful 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 conserved by a knowledgeable professional). Full lining, unaltered insignia, excellent condition throughout.A rare piece of SS history. Sale includes COA 15,900 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.

 

 

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 that many worldwide in collections. (At the 2019 Show of Shows, one of these appeared, was priced at a 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 restoration; but also reflects the utter rarity of a decent condition M37 SS Tunic and these killer rare insignia. Don't miss this one, VT collectors! (period photo courtesy of consignor) Sale includes COA 15,500 USD.

 

 

 

 

Ua92, 27" 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 1790 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. A chance to own a VA-SS issue marked 'textbook' SS piece is attractive. Early Cloth Collectors, you just don't see these untouched like this! Price includes COA 14.5K 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 4k USD.

 

 

UA74 Sepp Dietrich Tableware (knife). Here is a fine table knife with provenance to Sepp Dietrich. The accompanying document gives some additional details. A personal item from an iconic SS leader! Price includes COA 550 USD.

Ua132, Fine Waffen-SS Officer's Schiffchen Cap. Waffen-SS M40 overseas cap for an Infanterie officer, original period hand-applied flatwire officer eagle and skull, machine applied white wool piping, white soutache maker-applied, with three knotted thread loops with the ends being inserted into the lower edge of the cap and tacked into place. The body is made of fine quality ribbed trikot material, the lining is correct grey ribbed cotton, size 56. Cap has a partial grey colored sweatband located at the forehead, somewhat typical of Clemens Wagner type caps. Beautiful example in near-perfect condition. Price includes COA 7300 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, for the specialty collection! Sale includes COA 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 very cool SS NCO's tunic, with a very sharp appearance and from a rarer unit. Price includes COA 7800 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 6600 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 appear never to have been removed. 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 6500 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), 6200 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 9,400 USD.

 

UA Waffen-SS Winter Parka. This fall to winter oakleaf parka is a great looking combat piece that displays very well. The interesting thing is it has a blurred edge camo hood, in combination with the oakleaf pattern body; both in fall color scheme. Some minor snags and repairs, but overall this is an excellent piece. Price includes COA 4900 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 3200 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 HOLD for CZ 4700 USD.

 

 

Ua98, Outstanding Waffen-SS Panzer EM M43 Cap. This is a huge size 60 Waffen-SS Panzer EM's M43, with a black cotton lining and machine applied BeVo two piece stacked insignia. The front closure is the single button type, with black bakelite button. The lining is RB numbered and size marked. This is a great, rare cap in a huge size. Completely textbook! Price includes COA HOLD for CZ USD.

 

 

Ua97, Waffen-SS NCO White Piped Visor Cap. This cap is a very nice example of a W-SS NCO's Visor cap with a lot of character and original period use. The insignia are matching 'feinzinc,' with Zimmermann skull, neither have been altered or removed. The lining is a light grey imitation silk with some staining and wear, size marked 57. The body of the cap is whipcord wool with a nice pinched peak. The Heer style strap's buckles are positioned to frame and enhance the insignia (a quick glance on the web will reveal multitudes of portraits of SS NCOs wearing Heer straps rather than the SS pattern). There are no majore issues of mothing or non-period damage; the cap is an excellent and "been there" piece. Price includes COA HOLD 5k USD.

 

 

Ua120, Sharp Waffen-SS Service Used M43 Cap. Here is a nice big size, moderately worn SS M43 with bevo trapezoidal insignia. The cap is an earlier quality wool with two button closure and full leatherette sweatband framing the imitation silk lining. The cap is size marked 59. The insignia is machine sewn and all aspects of this cap are untouched original. there is a small moth bite on the right side. Sale includes COA 2200 USD.

 

 

Ua104 Waffen-SS Maroon Fez. This Fez is in excellent to minty condition, with full, factory marked sweatband. A perfect example of this Balkan Moslem piece of headgear! Sale includes COA 1200 USD.

 

 

UA65 SS-TV Side Cap, Very Nicely Named! This cap is a Teufel and Sohn, dated 1941. So it is immediately a desirable piece, made by one of the sought after makers. Secondly, it has a great name tape sewn inside, naming it to a member of 9th Company, SS ,Deutschland.' The cap itself is a gently toned feldgrau, with correct triangle SS-VT eagle on the side above the scallop, and a feldgrau painted button skull, Deschler type, on the front. Excellent piece for the early wartime VT display. Price includes COA 6200 USD.

 

 

UA9 Waffen-SS NCO's Private Purchase Visor Cap Here is a very good example of an SS NCO's private purchase cap, by Rekord of Bavaria. The cap body is a high quality light grey wool, with badgecloth band and white piping. The lining is off-white silk and rayon blend. 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.

 

 

 

Ua88, SS-VT EKII, SS-Ogruf. Hausser Signed Urkunde. This is a superb condition award grouping by itself, consisting of an origial portrait of the soldier (from SS-Deutschland) and his mint EKII, with verleihungsurkunde signed by SS-Ogruf. Paul Hausser. The quality of the grouping is very nice. In addition are the soldier's letters home and some other documents, including his letters from captivity, and interestingly, notices to his family about him being killed or missing in action. He was held in US and French captivity from the time of his capture in 1941 until his release a couple of years after the war. Price includes COA SOLD 1150 USD.

UA51 Mint Waffen-SS SS-Mann's M43 Cap and Infantry Shoulderboards This fine M43 and set of SS Enlisted infantry boards are all that remain of the complete uniform set that comprised this listing. The cap is a correct, italian wool and herringbone construct, with stacked, factory machine applied insignia that are integrated into the construction of the cap (with cap seam running across part of the eagle's wing-- a fine hallmark of originality). The desirable 'large skull' and matching eagle are the insignia. The boards are a mint set of correct W-SS infantry boards, great for display or completing a mint tunic. A COA will accompany this purchase.

    UA5 Rare Waffen-SS Panzer Denim Protective Jacket and Matching Trousers This rare outfit is a once in a long time SS artifact. They bear matching markings and are dated 1945. The material is heavy denim and shows moderate wear with no damage or holes. The jacket shows clear sun fading, revealing the outline and remaining stitching of a cufftitle. The sleeve eagle is original to the jacket, as is the partially attached rank tab. The runic tab is missing. The shoulderboards black light very well, but do not match in wear on the monograms so I am not factoring them into the price of the outfit. There are very few of these utility outfits known and I am pleased to be able to handle it, examine it and offer it. For the tank man collector! A COA will accompany this purchase. 11K USD.

     

     

    UA6 Combat Worn Waffen-SS Erbsentarnmuster Tunic This tunic originates from the same collection as other cloth pieces featured here and is an excellent example of a late war camo battle dress. The size marks are crisp, with an SS-BW (KL Dachau) manufacturer's mark. The sleeve eagle is machine sewn textbook fashion and overall the wear is strong medium. The tunic is missing one button but is otherwise complete and sharp. Price with COA 4.5K USD.

     

     

     

    UA8 Sharp Mid-war Waffen-SS Officer's Visor Cap This is an excellent Kleiderkasse issue Waffen-SS officer's visor, with no issues. The alumi Deschler skull and feinzinc eagle are not a match--the skull appears completely period applied. lining, materials and construction are all commensurate with other roughly 1942-43 examples. All in all a great cap of nicer quality. Priced reasonably at HOLD for TA 7.8K USD.

    Ua110, Mint Contract(?) Heer M36 Tunic. This Heer private's tunic is an unmarked example that the consignor reports is a (French or possibly Austrian, post Anschulss?)-made contract piece.

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. The trousers are matching and are included in the price. This flat mint outfit is a nice looker and has a lot of historical and display appeal. Price includes COA 3950 USD.

    UA24 Luftwaffe General's Pennant This pennant comes from an advanced collection and is of a superb, high quality cello embroidery with fine gilt ribbon edging with Hakenkreuz motifs.
