Item 6521 WW2 German MG34 (original cut receiver)

       

        

  This is a parts kit built onto an original receiver which has been cut  and re-welded together according to BATF specifications and is 100% legal. The Gun is one of those which were left unfinished in Occupied Czechoslovakia after the war and assembled by the Czechs for post war sale to other countries. (99% of all "parts kit" MG34s are from this source) The receiver upper part is not marked with the factory code or date as the gun was never finished prior to May 8, 1945. Some of the parts have waffen-ampt markings, some do not. Some are numbered (not matching) and some are not. But all parts are pre-May 8 1945 produced by the Germans. The selector switch is present but for some reason does not stay in place. There is a 1/4 inch gap between the butt-stock assembly and the rear of the receiver; most likely due to how it mates to the end of the receiver. All parts are in nice condition with most of their original blued finish. Just as it is supposed to; the gun unlocks and swivels at the point between the receiver and the barrel shroud and the barrel is removable. Makes a great display.  ON HOLD

Item 6519 WW2 German Egg grenade

        

        

  This M39 Egg grenade is a veteran bring-back. It is NOT one of those excavated or gotten from lakes/rivers in the 1980-90s as 99.9% of them are. The body retains almost all of it's original grey finish and the loading date is still seen stenciled on it. The bottom of the body is maker marked EVY43. The pull-cap is marked and dated. The grenade had been de-activated by prying open the top fuse base and then re-crimping it. Very neatly done. This is only the second one of these which I have seen in this condition in my entire time of collecting. SOLD

 

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

Item 6520 WW2 German medic fur pack

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

Item 6518 WW2 German NCO combat tunic

       

       

  

  This is an early 1938 dated M36 tunic. It is size stamped as a 114 which was pretty darn big for a German in the 1930s. But I suppose the Oberfeldwebel lost weight as the tunic was tailored down to about 98-100. (Apparently the Russian front really doesn't put meat on a man's bones) The eagle is carefully hand-sewn and I believe it was period done. The tunic has some scattered mothing but no damage/rips/repairs. Has the collar insert. All insignia is believed original to the tunic and is in matching condition. This one has a real honest look and feel to it. ON HOLD


 

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

Item 6510 WW2 German butter dish

        

  This is the standard German WW2 fat container for the daily fat ration. That ration came in any number of delicious ways (goose lard, pig fat, plain old Crisco...) All original pe-1945 ones should open on a half twist and be the shorter model like this one. They are rarely dated and this one is not. No cracks, chips or damage. $60.00


 

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

Item 6517 WW2 German mess kit, matching, 1941

       

  A lot of guys refer to this as an AfrikaKorps mess kit due to the light shade of green. While they did use these in Africa, they also used them in Russia because that's just the type of paint they were using in 41 and 42. This one is a nice all aluminum type with matching maker and 1941 date. ON HOLD


 

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

 

Item 6511 WW2 German 1944 mess kit with 1944 strap

       

  This is a nice example of a late war mess kit with matching maker/date marks and a matching 44 dated leather euipment strap. It's green on the inside as well and this is a rare feature. SOLD


 

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

Item 6512 WW2 German tropical canteen

     

     

  Just the canteen for the AfrikaKorps enthsiasts out there (you know who you are) This one has a very nice felt cover with no moth damage. The webbing is super clean. The strap was subcontracted by "K.U." which is very common as that company only made straps and didn't make canteen bodies. SOLD


 

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

Item 6513 WW2 German AfrikaKorps canteen

     

     

  Here is a tropical canteen with leather tabs on the cover; produced just before they switched completely to web material for use in Afrika. Nice clean canteen body with no leaks, super clean webbing and cover. Made by W.A.L with the carry strap subcontracted to R.K. $175.00


 

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

Item 6514 WW2 German wooden canteen

       

  The Germans refered to these as "coconuts". They were designed for use in Africa but very few actually got there. Mostly used on the continent from 42 to 45. This one has an intact pressed wood body with clean webbing and an intact leather keeper strap at the throat (very often these are broken because they are thin) flawless cup. SOLD


 

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

Item 6515 WW2 German canteen

     

     

  Here is you standard late war canteen made of stamped steel. The body is green which is not a common feature as most are painted oxide red like the caps. Nice cover and all intact leather with no damage. SOLD


 

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

Item 6516 WW2 German gas mask with can and straps

       

  Everybody needs a gas mask now and then. This one is a decent 1942 dated can with a 43 dated mask. All straps are present and sound. The soldier who used it made a very nice name tape and glued it inside the lid with the two spare lenses. SOLD


 

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

Item 6491 WW2 German Luftwaffe stroboscope

       

  This is a German ww2 mechanical stroboscope used by the Luftwaffe to adjust aircraft engines. A stroboscope is used to make a cyclically moving object appear to be slow-moving, or stationary. Stroboscopes play an important role in the study of stresses on machinery in motion. This example is in completely functional condition and comes with it's original carry box and certificate of inspection dated 1943.  Wind it up and look through the aperture and it makes whatever you are looking at appear like an old movie. Hours of fun for the whole family. $300.00


 

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

Item 6492 WW2 German MG34/42 50 rd magazine

        

  This 50 rd drum was post war used by Yugoslavia; hence the funky communist green over-paint. But it is an original WW2 German produced specimen and can be had for a song. That is; a song plus SOLD


 

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

Item 6488 WW2 German General officer visor hat

       

 

This hat is a reproduction. It is custom made by a hat maker in Germany. The fine wool material is custom made as well. It is spot-on exactly like original. The visor is an original from old stock. The metal eagle is an original that has been newly gilded. The saddle form of the hat is perfect. The lining is superb. The maker mark is from an original hat maker in Berlin. Simply speaking; if you were a German General officer in 1942, this is exactly the hat that you would get from a quality tailor shop. It is that good. Please note that this hat has nothing to do with any of the cheaply made Chinese or Pakistani-made hats that are available on the web. I guarantee it was crafted in Germany and you will find none which comes closer to the real thing. I only have this one to offer. The size is about 58. $375.00

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

Item 6508 WW2 German 98K ammo pouch, 1935

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.

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

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. $1200.00

 

 

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

Item 6412 WW2 German 37mm flak round, AP

         

   This is a very decent example of the FLAK 37mm armor piering round. Well marked casing and projectile. Completely inert. $190.00

 

 

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

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". Perfect for filling that empty lens compartment in your gas mask canister. $15 for one packet, 25 for two packets. $35 for three packets.

 

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

Item 6303 WW2 German 8cm mortar

       

       

 

I love this thing but I need space so something's gotta go. I restored this myself. I stripped it to bare metal and gave it a coat of oxide red primer then a special mixture of feldgrau. Some of the high spots have been roughed up so it doesn't have that "new" look.

The sight and box are included. The sight has all original paint. The box has been re-painted at some point. The traverse adjustment knob works, the elevation crank works. Everything works. The sight base has two waffen-ampts. The base plate has two waffen ampts. There are waffen-ampts on the interior parts of the elevation mechanism.

The tube has an 8cm hole burned into it. There is re-rod welded into the upper part of the tube. The firing pin is missing. There is one screw missing from the sight base. Overall this makes a fantastic display and is a museum quality restoration. $6000.00

 

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

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.
