Item 6684 WW2 German MG34/42 ammo box

     

Here is a nice ammo box for the MG34/42 Machine guns. It is the kind made just after they switched from aluminum to steel but just before they switched to the "MG Kasten 41". This box dates to 1940.It is not dated but has a waffen ampt marking at the top. 100% original paint. Not been re-used by Norway or Yugoslavia. $145.00

 

 

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

Item 6637 WW2 Heer/Luftwaffe splinter pattern Zeltbahn

       

       

Here's a very nice and vivid splinter pattern zeltbahn made by the "Warel" company which was the patent holder for the M31 zeltbahn so it's sort of like the one to have. Just like Dagger collectors might prefer Eickhorn pieces as he was the premier blade maker. But I digress. This zelt is well marked on both sides of the "light" side. (Every single Heer/luftwaffe zeltbahn has a "light" and "dark" side to it. There are some small holes that cannot really be seen unless you hold this thing to the light. SOLD

 

 

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

Item 6639 WW2 German pre-war political zeltbahn

     

     

This is a pre-war tan/brown zelt which would have been used by any number of different paramilitary organizations. It has round ink stamps on it near the bottom. I think the most likely use was for the SA or HJ organizations. $95.00

 

 

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

Item 6640 WW2 German Rucksack

   

   

Basically this is an un-issued rucksack with mint condition leather fittings. The leather is pliable. It is made from a couple different types of material as many wartime packs were. All stitching is sound. No rips or repairs. Just as issued. $125.00

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

Item 6642 WW2 German M31 Bekleidungssacke

   

   

I fell in love with these things when I watched "cross off Iron" and saw Sgt Steiner carrying one when he was coming back from medical leave. It's the standard M31 clothing bag. The leather is a little bit stuff and the cloth has a few small stains. Overall sound and usable. $35.00

 

 

 

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

Item 6649 WW2 German schutzpolizei M43 hat

       

     

     

     

It has been my experience that police M43s are nearly the toughest M43s to find. This one is in overall decent condition. I made a lot of photos so you can tell that it is unmolested and everything is as it should be. There are no hidden surprises or undisclosed damage. The size is 58. 100% honest in every regard. $600.00

 

 

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

Item 6650 WW2 German Luftwaffe bread bag

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

Item 6652 WW2 German Schutzpolizei bread bag

     

     

Police bread bags are the very best bread bags. I love the police color and the contrasting brown leather. This one is in exemplary condition. 42 dated bag and a 38 dated strap. $125.00 for the set.

This is an aluminum spoon fork combo. Marked and dated. $25

 

 

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

Item 6667 WW2 German flashlight

   

The Germans never developed a handy flashlight like we did. They instead had this over complicated, over engineered contraption. Put a battery into it and it will likely work. $45.00

 

 

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

Item 6671 WW2 German pipe items

   

This is a set of period items; a pipe in it's box, a package of tobacco which has a 3rd Reich era price on it. Don't smoke just because the cool kids tell you that you will fit in. $50.00

Item 6679 WW2 German P38 pistol holster

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

Item 6624 WW2 German issue soldier's gloves

 

    Size 1

    Size 2

    Size 3

These are original WW2 German wool gloves as issued to soldiers of every branch of service. Good used condition with no moth damage, holes or worn-through spots. They are available in 3 sizes as indicated by the sizing rings knitted into them on the inside. One of the more ubiquitous items of WW2 German kit. Being as they are knit wool, the size is very forgiving. Basically they are small-medium-large. $65.00 your choice of size.

 

 NOTE: They way these gloves were issued is that with the onset of cold weather, everybody in the unit got a pair and wore them through the winter. When spring came, they were collected and stored in a bin with the division supply train. Next year, the bin was brought out again. Maybe it was topped off by a number of new pairs of gloves that came from army procurement; maybe not. Pairs were mated by size; not by condition or exact width and position of the size rings (which do vary; depending on the manufacturers) Unless a soldier was receiving a brand new pair from a bin that contained only gloves fresh from the manufacturer; he was not likely to receive a pair that matched identically. These gloves are not even right-left specific. Each glove will fit either the right or left hand. I have a number of pairs of gloves that came from a single source; a man in Germany who cleans out old estates. Basically, about 50 pounds of these gloves had been found in an old house. I have matched them into pairs as closely as possible. Some are exact matches; some are not. I'll do my best to accommodate you if you need a set which closely matches.

 

 

 

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

Item 6628 WW2 German field phone battery

        

Who out there would like to have an original battery (with original label) for their field phone? I know I would want one if I didn't have one. This one is guaranteed to no longer contain electricity so you are going to have to pretend it does. $85.00

 

 

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

Item 6591 WW2 German EM SS visor hat, Sattelform, 1936

       

       

       

     

This is about as nice an example that you are going to find. The hat is an early saddle form type which is dated 1936. (It seems to me that the vast majority of these EM black visors are the less attractive teller form) The black gaberdine material is in near flawless condition and has not been visited by moths. The saddle form is very good with no need of shaping. The insignias are beyond doubt original to the hat and have the prongs inserted directly through the lining as is correct for these early visors. The bill is waffle pattern vulkanfiber and is soundly stitched to the hat. All threads and stitching are intact throughout the hat. Well marked with an early style black label sewn into the crown and the white hersteller tag sewn in at the side. The hat fits a size 57 hat form perfectly. ON HOLD

 

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

Item 6592 WW2 German Luftwaffe NCO tunic

     

     

     

     

This tunic is just as it was aquired by the Author/collector Mark Bando from a 3rd army veteran some years ago. The jacket is a private purchase Luftwaffe NCO (approx size 38) with all original insignia. The Luftwaffe oberfeldwebel was apparently a technician on an aircraft as indicated by the bullion embroidered Aircrew tech rating on the sleeve. This airman apparently wanted a classy appearing uniform as he took advantage of the NCOs prerogative of having bullion insignia sewn on his jacket. There are some moth holes as can be seen in the photos. The radio-operator/flight engineer badge is original to the jacket. It is a zinc metal example produced by Wilhelm Deumer of Ludenscheid. The jacket and original badges cost $1050.00

 

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

Item 6596 WW2 German Luftwaffe map case

       

This is a 1940 dated brown leather map case made from pebbled leather. All is sound and supple with intact stitching. Named to a US soldier who apparently captured it. The map case has the celluloid removable map holder inside. Very difficult to find in this condition. $150.00

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

Item 6599 WW2 German Luftwaffe property Beer bottles

     

These are original WW2 Beer bottles which are marked as Luftwaffe property. It seems that Hermann Goring saw that his fly-boys had a bit of cheer on hand when they returned from bombing Westminster or Rotterdam... Very nice condition with no cracks or chips. The retainer wires have surface rust but are sound and still hold the sealers tightly. I have four of these that came from a Normandy Flea market last summer. I suppose they were found locally. $75.00 each

 

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

Item 6601 WW2 German "Fettesbusche" fat container

   

This is an undated example of the fat container in black bakelite. It is a pre-1945 produced example made from real bakelite and NOT plastic. It opens with a half-twist of the interlocking threads. Just the way it should. No damage or cracks. Perfectly usable for any number of household applications. $60.00

 

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

Item 6603 WW2 German "Fettesbusche" fat container, 1944

     

Thisis an undated example of the fat container in brown bakelite. It is a pre-1945 produced example made from real bakelite and NOT plastic. It opens with a half-twist of the interlocking threads. Just the way it should. No damage or cracks. Reddish brown bakelite is the best kind of bakelite. ON HOLD

 

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

Item 6580 WW2 German wooden crate for artillery powder charges

   

   

  This is a box for powder charges for the 155mm artillery rounds. There is a slightly visible address on it indicating it was used as a container for some GI to ail home his souvenirs after the war. Dated 1944. The dimensions are 24 X 12 X 10 inches. Nice shape. $120.00

 

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

Item 6579 WW2 German signal magazines

A Available

B ON HOLD

C Available

D  ON HOLD

Filled with articles about Germany's military adventures (for the sake of a "united Europe") as well as articles such as might be found in "Time" or "life" magazine here in the states. These issues are French language. Circulated through the Paris office of signal. I have five of them which I bought in France. Each is complete and slightly used. No torn pages or unpleasant surprises. The covers are just great. $25 each

 

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

Item 6578 WW2 German fettebusche

   

  I have to confess that I have never seen a fat container exactly like this one before. It is about twice the height of the normally encountered ones and it opens with two full twists (unlike the half twist required to open the standard model) I am sure it is Pre-1945 as it is definately bakelite and not plastic. The glass insert is present. I believe it to be a pre-war model. $75.00

 

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

Item 6545 WW2 Heer tropical shirt

  This is a well used original example of the M41 army issue tropical shirt. It has pleated pockets. One of the buttons is cracked. The markings inside the rear collar are no longer visible do to washing. Small repair at left upper breast near the collar. A very rare example. $550.00

  Can you say "trinkwasserbehalter" 3 times real fast? This is a 10 liter original aluminum can for transporting potable water. It has 98% of it's original paint and the stenciling is very good. These are nearly impossible to find in this condition. $450.00

 

 

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

Item 6535 WW2 Luftwaffe trousers

     

   

  This pair of trousers came with the above offered tunic and shirt. They are basically in un-issued condition and are in perfect shape except for the three moth holes at the front which can be seen in the photos. The size is about 33 waist 32 length. $750.00

 I just wanted to show you my new car. Yes; it's mine.

Yes; it's twelve inches long.

Item 6475 WW2 German 7 X 50 binoculars with case, dated 1942

        

        

 There are so many things you can do with Binoculars. So many different people you can watch from afar. (But what you do in your spare time is none of my business. I just sell old military stuff. I am not your conscience) This set has everything going for it. The heavy neck strap for the case is intact and sound. The case is in excellent condition and dated 1942. The binos themselves are decent with intact leatherette covering and a sound neck-strap. The lenses show just a tad of spotting in the right optic if you look into the opposite end. No fogginess or dimness. $395.00

 

 

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

Item 6468 WW2 German camouflage shelter 1/4 Zeltbahn

        

 Here is a fairly good example with excellent colors and an RB number maker mark. It is missing only 2-3 of it's buttons and some have been replaced so there is a mixture of zinc types. But all buttons are original Zeltbahn buttons. The top grommet is missing. Perfect for use or display. $150.00

 

 

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

Item 6457 WW2 German DAK souvenir belt

       

        

 I bought this in Kansas city years ago and have loved it ever since. It is a 141 dated tropical web waist belt that has had souvenir items period added to it by the GI who brought it home. The "Arikakorps" cuff title is affixed by several stitches at the edges. The stars and cap insignia are from tropical Italian uniforms. A must-have item for the collector of true DAK stuff. $650.00

 

 

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

Item 6376 WW2 German Luftwaffe enlisted man's straight-leg trousers.

This Shako is made from a very nice grade of tricot material. Officer's style lining and chin-scales. It has a few loose threads at the top wearers right. $1280.00

 

 

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

Item 6356 WW2 German tool box

        

I do not know exactly what this box is. It is unmarked. It has 80% of it's original ordinance tan paint. I tend to think it is a tool box or accessory box for a wagon or field kitchen. Let the buyer be the judge! $45.00

 

 

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

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.
