  1. Nice and quite rare NSDAP lapel badge. Marked М1/72-Fritz Zimmermann - Stuttgart.
  2. Handed out personally by Albert Speer, to the most senior workers at the end of building process of the "new" Reichskanzlei in 1938. This is a damaged wall plaque with artist's signature "A. Breker" . Inscription: "In memory of the completion of the Reich Chancellery - Erstanden March 1938 to today Berlin the ninth January 1939 ". Foundry marks for the Prussian mining and metallurgical AG Gliwice. Size 26.5 x 13.5 cm. The damage just adds character to the plaque.
  3. Bronzed white metal bust of Adolf Hitler by Theodor Linz. This is a half life size portrayal of Hitler in a wartime zinc alloy with a bronze finish. The bust measures about 9" tall and is quite heavy. The patina is very nice, although some of the brass finish is missing due to it's age/history. The metal is in decent condition, except that a chunk is missing from the mounting flange. It still sits upright, and the mounting hole remains, so this could easily be attached to a stone or wood base. I believe (?) the foundry ( "Kunstverlag H. Wurmann, Nurnberg" ) marking is on the bottom of the damaged base. I'm sure I can see a "N" (with a magnifying glass) pictures 5+6. He's quite heavy too..

    Shooting Award Wall Plaque.

    I've been told recently that it's not a shooting award as such, but a recognition of hard work, possibly at a shooting club, where this chap worked?.
  5. Lovely Proud Eagle sitting in front of a big target.
  6. Nice Berlin Porcealin Plaque, celebrating German "Kultur" 1763 - 1938.
  7. Sonderbefehls

    Small German Eagle.

    The maker is "RZM M3/100- Emmrich & Schoenig, Berlin".
  8. Sonderbefehls

    Small German Eagle.

    More info' on this Eagle: It's a "Shooting Honorary award". Versilbert translates as "Silver Plated".
  9. Two Christmas Fund Tins1914. Both complete with Silver Sterling bullet pencils, Christmas card and Princess Mary picture. These are the non smokers versions. They came with the canvas wallet, that held envelopes, writing paper and another pencil. Loads of history

    Small German Eagle.

    Small frosted silver Eagle, with two attachments on the back. Must have been on a desk mount or plaque (?) 7 inches high and three inches wide. Quite heavy too.
  11. They are Jerry, especially in this condition. The only other ones I have seen, are either missing the contents or are in a very poor condition. I believe the rarest item, is the Asprey Trench lighter. (in with the smokers version of the 1914 Princess Mary tin).
  12. Non smokers version of the 1914 Princess Mary Tin Christmas Fund tin, came with a khaki Writing wallet. Inside there were two compartments, the front contained 2 packs of envelopes, and the rear had the writing pad and guide line sheet. A pencil was attached to a loop on the side of the writing pad. This one is in great condition, the press stud is in good working order. The front of the wallet has a clear crown and Mary monogram.

    WW1 German Brass Plaque?

    Not sure on this to be honest.. Nice brass plaque of a Helmet with wreath. 16 x 11 cm.
  15. Not really sure on this Cap, but I'm told it's a M36 Reichsbahn overseas version. Only a size marking inside that I can find, seems a decent Cap? Not my normal field of knowledge, the Reichsbahn..
