  1. https://www.lordashcroftmedals.com/collection/ The largest collection of Victoria Crosses is said to be in the collection of Lord Ashcroft, some of whose collection is on public display at the Imperial War Museum
  2. There are also many ARP marked examples to be found, many years ago 1916 (etc.) dated pieces could be found at an affordable price.
  3. In the internet under following link is a collection of Ranglisten from 1785 till 1914, and for the Reichswehr till 1928, apparently in posession of the Stadtarchiv Gliwice (formerly Gleiwitz) https://www.sbc.org.pl/dlibra/publication/392674?fbclid=IwAR2g8ymYxXF6n71eHZCTFt71ZhDNVLLrRYWPvNpbQq-yP_83Q9LyOA4-MTI#structure 1806

  5. Another very rare helmet from a private collection Officer's helmet, Leib-Kürassier-Regiment Großer Kurfürst (Schlesisches) Nr.1, Breslau, VI. A.K., ca. 1913 with the special eagle emblem adopted in 1902. The officers of this regiment also had this unique form of chinscales and cockades. The emblem is the so-called "Friderizianisches Muster" with scroll "Pro Gloria et Patria" An example of this is also on offer presently for 38.500 Euros
  6. By letting the helmet rust, you are not gaining anything. A helmet like this can be several thousand pounds value, as a rusted relic, it will be practicly zero value. Under the wrong conditions, the decals will detiorate, then the paintwork and the steel itself, the leather liner and chinstrap also. A well known militaria dealer and established auctioneer stated that when valuable pieces are stored in a loft for years, they can go through temperature differences of over 50° C between Winter and Summer, which will cause irreparable damage to most materials. An original, intact paintwork and

  8. Nice set does justice to the item. Make sure no rust gets at them, maybe better to store textiles separately.
  9. There are two straps to the gasmask tin, the long and the short version with a flat hook. Each one has a small aluminium or iron button/stud for fastening, sometimes these are missing.
  10. There is a flaw on the eagle's wing to the right?
  11. Some articles of equipment are getting really hard to find in a reasonable condition, and the prices have soared tremondously. What you definitely need is the set of straps for the gasmask canister, long and short, these are also difficult to find in a good condition, there are also many other post war issues and copies around. You also need a strap for the messtin, this would have to be a certain length and have the right fittings (quick release button). Check for the right type of strap before buying, also hard to find.
  12. x Another spare - a spike base for an infantry Pickelhaube. This example came from an 1889 helmet from Füsilier-Regiment 39, later with Reserve-Infanterie-Regiment 39, still with both regimental stamps. The spike is missing, this was originally soldered on with tin. Either the spike had got lost in time, or it was officially removed, as per the regulation for the Front Line, at the lastest, January 1916. The later greymetal helmets all had a removable spike. I replaced the spike many years ago with an appropriate replacement. This helmet has some war damage, a shot or a

  18. Also worn on normal service dress 4-pocket tunic.
  19. The Panzer tunic would, quite honestly, need complete re-tailoring, you should see an example and compare it with an original! Then you would agree - however, the cloth is very good.
  20. Here are an obvious copies, Prussia, Württemberg and a few other versions for around 15 Euros upwards A few of these have been turning up lately, offered as originals, but in a very beaten up state, I think this example is original, it costs just under 300 Euros. There are also grey metal versions around. This buckle was worn only by Kgl.Sächsisches Schützen- (Füsilier-) Regiment Nr.108, which is very rare indeed. Example in picture is a copper coloured Tombak version, with a varation hook system to the rear. Note the solder marks, medallion many have been repaired or reat
