These pages display a number of the rare items that I have had the pleasure of selling. To view more details and a larger photograph please click on the thumbnail picture.
Adolf Hitler Tapestry
Original WW2 Adolf Hitler Portrait done as a tapestry, condition is perfect with no issues. These come in two sizes this one being the smaller one, size is 16x14 inches. This item i pressume is a early 1930's period patriotic piece and the actual portrait has been executed with very nice detail.
P38 Pistol, Matching Numbers.
Deactivated P38 pistol in very good condition indeed, most of its original blueing remaining. The body has a number of WW2 waffenampt stamps and the pistol parts are all with matching numbers, it has late war metal grips. Has the makers code of ''cyq'', the magazine is maker coded ''jvd''. Pistol can be broken down if wished. You wont be disapointed with this item. Comes with its deact cert ' im afraid not for sale to anyone under 18 and can only be sold to UK residents.
Hitler Youth Training Model 33 Haenel Air Rifle.
1930's Schmeiseer patent Haenel, sports model 33, air rifle . These were shaped very much like the K98 German military rifle and used by the younger members of the hitler youth, the DJ, for training purpose. This one is in very good condition, though the woodwork has a few blemishes/ sratches but no chips or missing woodwork. The bolt works fine and the rifle itself is in working order though the spring might be a bit weak, i pressume if you wish this could be tightened. The rare bit with these is the brass magazine which holds around 6 pellets, these are quite often found to be missing, here you have the original one which works fine. The only issue that i can find is that one modern screw nut has been used at the bottom which holds the bolt for use. Maker and model details run across the top of the barrel, has a safety catch at the rear of the barrel. Again this comes from my now shrinking Hj collection and a nice example to add to any weapons or HJ collection. Not for sale to under 18's and im afraid UK sales only.
Rare WW2 German made SS Doll.
This is a very rare example of a childs doll in SS uniform, condition is very good with no moth or tracking to the wool /felt uniform. The only damage is the crushed peak to the first pattern SS cap. The arms and legs are movable, the head and hands are made from plastic. From the early SS uniform pattern that the doll is wearing i belive this would date from the very early 1930's. This one is from my private collection which now needs a new home. Not something that comes on the market that often.
Large Adolf Hitler Plaque.
Large plaque of Adolf Hitler thats made from plaster. The plaque itself has very little damage to the front, some small paint loss from the plaster, nothing major and no chips, the back has one large chip from the right hand top, this does not go any were near the front of the plaque. There is a small hanging loop fixed to the top of the rear side. The Hitler head is executed with skill, this one looks like hitler, it has a bronze wash over the head, the rest of the plaque is green with gold letters. The artist has signed his name under the neck area, GOSSER, GRAZ, fits in nice since i bought this from a friend of mine who lives in Austria. The plaque is over 12 x18 inches and around 2 inches thick. A good sound example. This is a heavy item and comes in at 3 kilos. International postage will be very expencive IMO, last week i had an item to send to Belgium, it was 3 grams over 2 kilos, item postage cost at 2 kilos was £18, an extra 3 grams cost £44.
First Pattern British Para Denison Smock
First pattern denison smock which is dated 1943 . Colours are still very strong and there are no rips or moth to the jacket, i belive it might have been re-zipped, the zip pull is definetly a post war added item, the rear tail has been strengthened by the previous owner and the bottom left pocket popper has been replaced. The lable is dated 1943 and is made by the London firm of Hoffman and sons, its a size 3. I belive the para badge on the arm is a post war one.
Large Named WW2 Eighth Army RASC Officers Uniform
Complete set of uniform items to one officer in the RASC who served with the 8th Army in North Africa and up thru Italy. This '' time capsule'' grouping has the following items- Service dress uniform jacket and trousers, Battle dress jacket and trousers, service dress Officers cap, KD officers jacket, Officers Trench coat and WW2 tobacco tin with insignia, all contained in its original wartime metal ammo crate. Service dress jacket is in very good condition with no stains, moth nips or moth tracking, it has bronze officers RASC collar dogs and RASC buttons,original ribbon bar, green lanyard and Italian theatre made 8th Army arm insignia. It is named to the inside pocket to Gane and dated 1941. Trousers are again in very good condition with no moth etc. Service dress cap is in very good condition but has seen service use, the body has no moth nips or tracking, Officers bronze cap badge to the front. The inside has some staining from use but is complete with no damage, cannot find a name. Nice touch in my opinion is that the front peak is no longer stiff but soft from being worn in the field, i presume with his Battle Dress. Officers Trech coat is in very good condition with no moth nips or tracking, RASC buttons and arms of srvice stipes to the arms, again its named to Gane and dated 1941. Battle dress jacket and trousers are American war aid items both dated January 1943. The jacket is in very good condition with one match head sized moth nip the back. It has its original ribbon bar and green lanyard and arms of service strip to the arms. The original Italian made insignia has been removed but these were found in a tobacco tin with the grouping, exact size shadow to be found on the arm were these insignia were removed, easy job to re-attatch if wished. The trousers are other ranks version with map and wound dressing pocket, again in very good condition but has sufferd slightly from moth nips, these being around six or seven match ead and smaller size around the crotch area and right side leg, one larger one under fly area around the size of two match heads. KD Officers jacket is in very good condition with no damage and bronze RASC collar dogs, cannot find a name Wartime tobacco tin contains the two BD theatre patches, 2 bronze RASC collar dogs, a number of RASC buttons and yellow backed cloth officer rank pips, also found inside are two pairs of wodden made ear plugs. 1943 dated large metal box for ammo charges is named and addressed to A.G.GANE in Newcastle, also MFO marked. So heres a complete as mentioned ''time capsule'' uniform grouping to long serving Officer who saw action thur the territorials , North Africa with the First Army and into Italy, and the condition of everything is just outstanding. I must add that the complete lot will be very heavy indeed for posting, i am attending the Stonleigh Militaria Fair at the end of January so can deliver, and will be stalling out at future fairs so we can meet up for delivery, or i will send thru the post but will have to find a diffrent postal service than royal mail as there charges will be higher, just give us a call or email and we will sort it out.
Rare Home Guard Cape, Serge.1940.
This would have been one hell of a find but for the wartime dye used for clothing German POW's. The item itself is in very good condition with no holes or snags, nice clear label with a 1940 date. Even though the dye is part of its history i have been told that ther is a fabric cleaner that will remove dye from clothing, anyway it is what it is folks and of course priced accordingly.
