  1. There is a flaw on the eagle's wing to the right?
  2. 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.

    Spare Parts

    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

  9. Also worn on normal service dress 4-pocket tunic.
  10. 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.
  11. 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

  21. Scabbards etc. were often re-numbered. The finish on the blade looks ok, this could have been period done. The scabbard looks as though it could do with some oil, otherwise the rust may increase over time. In the first picture the bayonet is the wrong way round in the scabbard, always worn with the release button outwards.
  22. Am not an absolute expert on iron crosses, but I will take a guess, could it possibly be from the maker 65 (not always marked), which is Klein & Quenzer in Idar-Oberstein/Taunus, there could be many more possibilities, you would have to compare with other examples. The ribbon looks like a good original as well.
  23. Kürassier Denkmal in Pasewalk Former Offiziers Casino, Pasewalk Villa Knobelsdorff, former Standortälteste Dienstgebäude Oberstleutnant Hans von Knobelsdorff was the last commander of the Regiment, 1913-1919 Since after 1990 taken over by a private investor, restored and now a hotel.
  24. Suffolk Regiment (Infantry - counties Regiment). They don't look like WW1 or WW2 pieces. I had a few singles many years ago. First of all, they should be on rough khaki serge sliders, they were embroidered in white for WW1, and WW2 versions have black embroidery. Of course, there were also the denim battledress blouses in WW2, but I haven't seen matching insignia, although much British cloth insignia was printed in WW2. These were in place of the previous otherwise brass shoulder titles. Examples: Kings Dragoon Guards, WW1 and later Royal Naval Division, probably WW
