Item 1120  WW1 German M1915 Feld mutze

       

Who does not need one of these in their collection; the iconic though simply designed quintessential piece of German head gear seen worn on all fronts during WW1. This feld mutze has very nice feldgrau wool with only a single moth nip. The red band is intact. the lining is in nice shape although discolored from the years. The front cockades indicate use by a soldier of a Hessian unit. Overall very nice shape with no repairs or damage. size is about 55 $365.00

Item 1119  WW1 German "Verdun" style; M1916 Steel hand grenade

       

     

     

     

Who has seen one of these grenades in non-excavated condition anywhere? at any price? This is the model 1916; not to be confused with the M17 stick grenade; examples of which made it home with many souvenir hunting doughboys. This is the early model which debuted at Verdun in the spring of 1916. This example is actually dated April 17, 1916. The head retains 90% of it's original paint and stencil. The stick is in nice shape with no chips or cracks. The end cap is the early machined type (as opposed to the stamped version seen with the M17 grenades) The pull-ball and cord are original to the grenade. An item that is missing from even advanced WW1 collections. $1650.00

Item 1131  WW1 German Imperial crown buttons for M1910 tunic

Item 1132  WW1 German "800" marked soldier's souvenir ring 1914-1918

         

   

This ring should really not be confused with the cheap metal ones which were obtained during the war to replace silver and gold rings given in drives for the war effort. This is a post armistice souvenir of a soldiers service time in the great war. The ring is 800 silver marked. Quality cast with the dated 1914-1918. I am no good at sizing rings. I can only say that it fits my middle finger and I have medium sized hands. Actually jewelry like this is quite hard to come by. $125.00
