Item 6543 WW2 SS/Police officers uniform and documentation

     

       

       

     

     

 

  This is the uniform of Leutnant der schutzpolizei Friederich Emele; tailor made in his home town of Stuttgart in 1941. At this time Lt. Emele was serving with Polizei battalion 208 as part of Police regiment Mohren in the protectorate of Moravia. I don't have to tell you that good things were not happening there at that time. The police battalions of the protectorates of Bohemia, Moravia and the General government of Occupied Poland were responsible for  the majority of dealing with indigenous personnel who had been declared enemies of the state.

Lt der Schutzpolizei Friederich Emele also held the rank of SS Untersturmfuhrer with SS standarte 107 whose home base was the Stuttgart area.

The uniform and trousers are a matching set and are in near flawless condition. All insignia is original to the uniform. The war service cross is most likely not original to the uniform. The tailor label indicates the uniform was made by a Stuttgart tailor and is named to Emele.

I have obtained copies of about 25 pages of documentation on Emele's career from the US national archives. I am sure that more info can be found but I have not fully researched.

Price for the group is $2000.00

Item 6531 WW2 Japanese Shin Gunto NCO sword

     

     

  I know what you're thinking. This is not a WW2 German item. But I have no page on which to put Japanese items so I guess this will be close enough.

If you have ever looked for a Jap NCO sword, you know how tough they are to find in this condition and matching also. This is a wartime produced (probably 1943) NCO sword with 95% original scabbard paint. The blade is flawless (although there is some lint showing in the photos) Nice paint on the handle.

------------------------------

Item 6414 WW2 German Kreta Fallschirmjaeger monument

      

       

        

   This is an 18 inch tall statue of hand-carved light-weight wood. (I do not know what kind of wood it is) It is apparently quite old and is toned nicely. There are some who would theorize that it is P.O.W. art from just after the war. I would tend to agree with that as the name "Crete" has been somewhat anglicized in spelling. The German word is "Kreta" so the artist may have changed the K to a C. He may also have carved the Swastika backwards for that same reason.

The original Paratrooper monument was erected after the successful conclusion of "Operation Merkur" (May 20 to may 28, 1941) in the vicinity of the former Cretan Capital; Chania. The monument was dedicated to the fallen members of II/Battalion / Sturmregiment. The monument had it's swastika defaced just after the war but continued to stand intact until suffering storm damage in 2001. The base still stands today in the now built-up area outside Chania. The last photo above shows the monument as it stands today.

This statue would make a fine center-piece to any collection of German paratrooper items. $450.00

 

 

------------------------------

Item 6410 WW2 German Stielgranate 41 round for the 37mm anti-tank gun

      

     

   This is an ingenious wartime creation that gave the obsolete PAK 36 a little bit of added punch. ( The bottom photo shows how this round was used with the PAK 36) This is a cut-away example of the Stielgranate 41, a low velocity shaped charge weapon which was developed in 1943 and proved effective in penetrating the newer/thicker armor of enemy tanks. Popularly used by lightly equipped units such as Fallschirmjagers. This example has some light pitting which has been painted over. An extremely rare piece of ordnance. SOLD

 

 

------------------------------

Item 6412 WW2 German 37mm flak round, AP

------------------------------

Item 6356 WW2 German tool box

------------------------------

Item 6321 WW2 German gas mask lenses in original packets

I have several sets of unissued gas mask lenses in their original packets. Each wax paper packet contains 2 lenses. each lens is marked with maker/date "KUG 44".

------------------------------

Item 6094 WW2 German wartime issue cigars

     

These 4 inch long German ration cigars came from an opened box that had about 20 of them inside. It had the German "Steuerfrei" military tax stamp and also was stamped "Nur fur Wehrmacht". Sadly, I do not have the box anymore but you can still get all three of these cigars for your smoking pleasure. Price $25.00 for all 3.

 

----------------------------------------------------------------

Item 6085 WW2 German soldier's cigarette lighter

        

An ever popular item. This aluminum body lighter has an engraved picture on it of a hunter's cabin. (must have been the sort of thing that a soldier would gaze at longingly while the Soviet artillery was falling on him) It is still completely functional and the metal cap is shiny enough that you can see my reflection it while I took the picture. Perfect for the personnel items display. Price $25.00

 

----------------------------------------------------------------

Item 6071 WW2 German Water transport bag

       

Here is a fantastically rare item for those of you who are connoisseurs of rare field gear. This is the 20 liter carry bag for potable water. ( Note that I said "potable" not "Portable" but in this case both words apply). It has sound wooden handles and the canvas is in very nice condition. I cannot guarantee that it will still hold water after all these years but that's not why you'd be wanting to buy it anyway is it? (if so, then you'd be best to use canvas waterproofing on the inside) I bought this item in Normandy France some years ago and have recently upgraded it so it can leave my collection. It is not maker marked or dated that I can see. Price $155.00

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Item 6068 WW2 German set of 4 matching tent poles

     

Each German soldier was required to carry one of these poles. Four are needed to provide the center support of a zeltbahn tent. So I am selling a complete set of 4. No maker marks or dates but they are matching to each other and are 100% legit. $60.00 for the set.

 

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Item 6053 WW2 Stick grenade, Bulgarian dated 1940

        

This is the standard hand grenade used by Germany's axis partner, Bulgaria. The Germans used them as well. Thousands of these things were thrown at the Russians (boy, you sure can't do that sort of thing today) The head retains 80% of its original green color. The stick is in excellent condition and is well marked with the 5 1/2 second warning and a clear 1940 date. Overall a great item for the display of eastern front combat stuff. Price $175.00.
