  1. Do you have a photo of the interior that you can post?
  2. @ peakedcap, Thank you for your information regarding the Marshal of the SU's cap. In Texas, we have an old saying "never look a gift horse in the mouth". This and another marhsal's cap were given to...
  3. A great leader and a great man.
  4. Unusual and very nice.
  5. Thanks, Chris, I appreciate your comment.
  6. This very nice Reservist's flask belonged to a Cuirassier of the 5th (West Prussian) Cuirassiers “Duke Frederick Eugene of Württemberg”, a heavy cavalry regiment of the Royal Prussian Army. The regime...
  7. cwnewbie, Does the flask state what type of mounted unit in which Brahmst served (Kurassier, Dragoon, Hussar, Uhlan, etc.)? The glass eyes (stanhope) was a costly option that is rarely seen on flas...
  8. Very nice helmet of a reserve officer of the Jager zu Pferde. Not common at all.
  9. An attractive stein, but a modern reproduction. Originals did not have the "bump" in the handle, and the pewter lids of originals had a high tin content, and appeared much brighter, especially on the...
  10. gljplc; It is very difficult to find uhlan steins made of pottery. Most that I have seen are porcelain, and that, and other attractive elements of this stein make me loathe to sell it. Perhaps a ...
  11. racer4four, these were made to order for the reservists. They cost at least a month's pay so most of those serving could not afford to buy one. Those that did had custom scenes on the stein that the...
  12. I haven't seen one of these in a long time. Very nice!
  13. Your example is virtually identical to the fire-damaged PLM that I posted some months ago. I hope that you will get some constructive comments as to it's origin.
  14. jerryl25, I have been offered differing opinions (see marksmilitaria's outright dismissal). I have seen many of the replicas, and as you point out, none have any detail in the tail feathers of the ea...
  15. blunderbuss2, Thanks for your kind remarks. God willing, I will share more in the days to come.
  16. Militarist, thanks for your comments. I believe that the helmet is a complete fabrication, top to bottom. The spike base for the 109th Grenadier helmet is not cruciform, but rounded, as is the visor...
  17. Back in the mid- to late 1970's, and even into the early 1980's I would see dozens of spiked helmets at the Houston and Dallas gun shows--I bought many during that period, assembling over 100 before t...
  18. Greetings, blunderbuss2, no, my job keeps me busy, when I manage to get some time off between contracts, I post a few things that I have acquired over the years or sometimes in the recent past. I dou...
  19. Thanks for the kind words, I stumbled across this site by accident.
  20. Thanks, Militarist, I will take your advice.
  21. For blunderbuss 2: The Germans used Letters to designate the manufactrer of the pistol "ac" was the letter code for Walther. Mauser's code was "byf", and the P-38's made by Spreewerk spoort the lette...
  22. Looks good, early piece with a three-piece (rare) original hanger, rare maker, and nice blonde grip, Gau marked to "Hesse". Congrats on a great find!
  23. This is a Nazi Red Cross leader's (Officer) dagger, not common.
