Original WWII German Gear

(Click to Expand Pic for Details)

Original Kriegsmarine flag. Mint condition, size 200x330 which is about 6 1/2 feet high and 10 feet long. From what I've read, this would be the size flown on a cruiser or a destroyer.

Badges and Medals

(Click to Expand Pic for Details)


German Cross in Gold by Zimmerman.  Very nice and original.  Scarce award that fell between the Iron Cross First Class and the Knights Cross.  Textbook example.  Marked "20" on the catch for Zimmerman $2495
Luftwaffe Observers Badge, Pre-War.  This high quality and scarce badge by Gebruder Wegerhoff Ludenscheid has the Aluminum Eagle and early variant makers mark of "GWL" signifying it is from the late 30s.  Catch is broken as shown.  $795
Post War Souval Knights Cross.  magnetic 3 piece construction.  Marked 800 and M9/25.  While Souval of Vienna, Austria did make awards in WWII for the Third Reich, they were not authorized to make the Knights Cross.  Upon the end of the war, they made them for German Veterans and souvenir hungry GIs alike.  As they had the wartime expertise in award manufacturing, their products are of exceptional and authentic quality.  Basically, if you can't afford a $12,000 original Knights Cross, then a Souval is the next best thing to fill a hole in an Iron Cross collection.  $450
Iron Cross First Class.  No makers mark, magnetic core.  3 Piece, classic construction. $325
Bronze Close Combat Bar, mint condition, made by rare maker of IFS which is Josef Felx & Sohn of Bablonze.  Correctly curved, textbook example of this highly prized award.  $425

Standard Infantry Assault Badge, no makers mark.  $145

Luftwaffe Geschwader Horst Wessel Cuff Title.  Unit cuff title for ZG 26 which was a heavy destroyer/fighter unit.  $375
Luftwaffe Afrika Cuff Title.  The good news is that this is an original, rare piece.  The bad news is that is is cut down and has been glued into a display.  Still, fill in a rare cuff title from Rommel's Famed Afrika Korps at a price that won't cause a cardiac arrest.  $250
Heer Afrika Korps cuff title. Original with a splice.  My theory is that they threaded the tape through the embroidery machine and this was the splice between two rolls.  Still, shows the signs of an original piece and in mint condition.

 

$300

 ID and Personal Items

 

       
1 Post-War Esbit field stove.  These are the old style script stoves that are nearly identical to their WWII counterparts.  These are in exceptional condition and not all rusted to hell like the ones others try to sell.  All have had heat tabs burned in them, but are not rusted out. 

 

$5
2 Original Pack of WWII German  50 count Cigarette rolling papers .  Tobacco stamp has the Eagle with the swastika. Sold
3 Original pouch for Erkennungsmarken.  I stumbled into a lot of these at a fleamarket after an old woman had been cleaning out her basement.  Dogtag not included. Sold
4 German wallet with original Navy Breast Eagle with wool backing.  Interesting item, show age and smells musty.  See Wall of Service, Otto Heigel 1st SS, LAH for similar item:  Otto Heigel   Sold

6 Luftwaffe 1950s Gabardine 4 pocket Uniform made up to look WWII.  Actually, these early, post war tunic sets are very hard to come by, especially when they are a large size.  The FLAK patch, gull wings on the collar tabs, and the Gefreiter badge look original.  I would say it is a 44 chest, Regular length.  Comes with matching trousers that are a tight 36 inch waist.  The legs are tapered, so I am assuming you are supposed to wear boots.  If not, this was one post-war kraut with skinny chicken legs!  Comes with all badges as shown plus the trousers.

Reenacting Gear

This is all my personal reenacting gear.  After 24 years in the Army, both sons in college and beyond, and apparently the American Reenactors in Texas are now using ball ammunition, I have decided to give up this facet of my appreciation of military history.  I am 6' 2" and 225 with a 44 inch chest and 36x34 pants.  My son is 6' and wears about a 40 and a 34x34.  The tropicals were baggy on both of us.  Just trying to give you an idea of the sizes.  The tropicals were intentionally weathered to get "the look", so don't expect brand new.  All of the gear has been used unless otherwise stated.
