  1. I really was taken by how they encompassed the metallic anchor with the beautiful intricate stitch work around the anchor and the wrapped rope. Lovely piece you shared as well. Best Regards, JustinG

    Patriotic Porcilane

    A very nice piece. Great attention to detail.
  4. Greetings, I purchased this lovely example and wanted to share it with you. I am a novice when it comes to this kind and type of insignia. If there is any comment or concern, please feel free to leave me your opinions. Best Regards, JustinG

    unknown bayonet

    I believe this is a P1907 bayonet which is a British bayonet. Best Regards, JustinG

    Currasier helmet

    Wow, I like it. It appears to be a nice lobster tail helmet. I like the detail on the helmet and on the chinstrap. This is just my admiring this piece. I am not sure what or if thisis for sale and for what price you are considering purchasing. But from this novice eye, I say it is one that has a shot. The Wappen might be replaced. Would be great to see it's fasteners and loops. Again, just my opinion. Best Regards, JustinG

    Military Intelligence lot

    I am envious that you could just buy a grouping like this. I appreciate the typed or telegraphed items as it is much easier to read/translate. I have a hard enough time trying to decipher the cursive German that was so common. Seems like they get pretty lazy with their letters and sort of slur them together. Lots of fun things to look at and have fun seeing what you have all acquired. Hopefully your understanding of German, especially handwritten is more advanced than mine. Best Regards, JustinG

    Patriotic Photo album

    Very nice cover. What does this particular album cover? Could you share some more detail? Looks like a professionally made yearbook style. I look forward to seeing more. Thanks for sharing with us. JustinG
  9. Greetings, I know very little about these. It is amazing. I was unaware of this practice. Now my questions: I see an issue number on the top. Did they stamp their medals on the edge like the Soviets or Great Britain? Is this the attributed medal as stated in the document? Quite an interesting piece. Regards, JustinG
  10. Well, since no one else has chimed in. I am a bit concerned with this. For one thing, the story is a bit troubling, your friend said this came from a dead soldier... There is very little wear on this piece. Especially if you are thinking that it is from the mid 1800's. Copper would have some oxidation occurring. So, how would you expect that this piece would be held in place on the pickelhaube? What other insignia would you expect to be on this common Prussian eagle? Surely, there woudn't be say an Iron cross that would/could be attached and be the long pin going through your eagle and then be the sole attachment point to the helmet/pickelhaube? There are a lot of people attempting to pass off or try to create pickelhaube plates. From the condition, lack of reverse tabs, a clean drill hole in the middle, and overall condition, I am less inclined to believe this is a period piece. I am just stating my concerns. I look forward to other comments to either confirm or put my mind at ease with their interpretation of this piece posted. Best Regards, Justin
