I am currently re-structuring my collection and will be adding some choice specimen pieces to the website. If anything does catch your eye then do please email me for further details. Always happy to purchase items of militaria as well as part exchange against items listed on the website.

A 1980s-ish 'Totenkopf' lighter, unused. These sort of cigerette lighters were available at Old Comrades and veterans meetings throughout the 1980s, possibly earlier into the 1970s too. Made by the company Dora who made a number of items of German veteran wear. Still a quality lighter at a bargain price.

WW2 German Badges and Gau Badges, a number of Third Reich badges that I believe are copies and possible sales examples, a number of the grey coloured badges were on a poor condition card, all retain their pins and are in good condition. As said, I cannot guarantee these badges but hopefully of use to somebody, sold individually, priced each.

German Freikorps SSOS Battalion Wolf badge, circ 1921, in excellent condition, approx 62x39mm, none maker marked. This is a scarce inter-war period badge worn by members of the Freikorps Battalion formed by Lieutenant Oscar Wolf. Most likely an early reproduction and sold as such, albeit nicely made. An interesting early badge to the Freikorps Battalions. These badges are rarely seen, original or even reproduction.

An early reproduction first pattern E-Boat badge, this came in within a collection, I cannot guarantee this badge as I do not like the Schwerin maker details, however, its front finish is spot on and with a fine patina overall from kicking around all these years, I believe early postwar manufacture, most likely of German origin, it is original quality brass and does not bend like many of today's modern copies. Would make a very credible gap filler for this scarce badge, best reproduction E-Boat badge I've come across, again, please note that this is sold as a reproduction.

A German Anti-partisan Badge in Silver in white alloy metal, nicely detailed, pin intact, an interesting reproduction that I've not come across before, this one was in a collection that I bought in, possibly German manufacture. For the avoidance of any doubt this is not an original war time period badge though it is an interesting variation on the repro theme, a little like the early OLT buckles which strangely are always bought up. A little something interesting if you like odd ball items.

An interesting badge, obviously modelled on a wartime German influence, bearing the title ‘England Awake’. I believe these badges were made in the 1960s or so for the motorbike clubs, however, I cannot prove that one way or another. I have seen them at militaria shows from time to time over the decades though not so often these days. Came in with a collection of badges from auction, might be of interest to somebody. Badge is British made, the lugs are typical of British Army cap badges so most likely made by a badge manufacturer in a limited run, probably a private or club purchase. An interesting badge.

M42 raw edge army double decal winter cam helmet in excellent condition - the helmet is an original helmet that has had the army eagle and national shield added and over painted by a film prop studio, marked Q64 and batched ?055, still retaining its original Wehrmacht paint under the over paint which is showing through in places. The steel integrity has not been compromised at all, there are none of the usual bumps or dents. The decals are both in reasonable condition. The liner, which appears to be a period liner, is in good condition with the leather supple. Liner looks dated and sized but is difficult to make out. A very nicely done helmet that could easily be stripped back to a plain M42 helmet or be suitable for re-enactors who want a helmet for living history.

WW2 German Customs Long Service Medal, I believe its a postwar medal as its not found in silver colour and its a little light otherwise its spot on both sides, the ribbon isn't correct, should have the stitched eagle. That said a fine gap filler for a scarce medal.

A reproduction collectors level SS Honour Dagger, nice quality most likely made in the 1970s or so, probably Austrian manufacture, a fine functional replica dagger with a good weight to it, blade is well polished, the scabbard is especially good with an 'original' quality lacquered finish which would work well on a standard dagger with the fittings changed, a nicely presented reproduction dagger. Perhaps a cheap option to renovate a damaged scabbard or act as a temporary scabbard until an original is found.
