    GERMANY – STATUETTE – DEDICATED HONOR FOR PETER STRASSER – NAVY ZEPPELIN SERVICE COMMANDER

    SKU: 26-73 A

    $4,925.75

    FregattenkapitänPeter Strasser (1876-1918) was the commander of all the Imperial German Navy zeppelins that flew against England, Paris, and Brussels. Strasser was a brave and respected man. He was highly-regarded as a leader by his superiors and his subordinates alike. He flew with his crews and took the same chances as they did.  He was awarded the Orden Pour le Mérite.  Ultimately, he suffered the same fate as many of his fellow zeppelin officers and crew members when he went down in flames on what became his FINAL bombing mission over London on 6 August 1918. [Nearly 50% of all Navy zeppelins were destroyed, and 40% of their crews died in combat. When their hydrogen-fueled vessels exploded, the crew went down in flames with them]…..

    GERMANY – TUNIC – UNTEROFFIZIER – MINENWERFER DETACHMENT

    SKU: 15-474

    $845.00

    This is a wonderful prewar quality dunkel-blau tunic from a Minenwerfer detachment. Many of you are asking, “What in the world is a Minenwerfer?” Minenwerfers were wheeled artillerie pieces that fell partway between conventional cannons and mortars. They were intended for use in close support of Infanterie. They were mounted on gun carriages, but typically had shorter barrels than traditional cannons as they were not intended for long-range use. They did not require the greater range because they were kept much closer to the Infanterie than other forms of artillerie. Minenwerfers came in three calibers: 7.58CM, 17CM, and 25CM. They also had rifled barrels. They were used in fairly large numbers during WW I. [I do not know if the Allies had a similar weapon, but this does provide quite an intriguing story]! The tunic’s body is dark-blue (dunkel blau). A single row of eight silver buttons runs down its center. The second buttonhole from the top sports a ribbon for the 1914 Iron Cross 2nd Class. Red piping extends from the collar down to the tunic’s center. The tunic’s collar is black (for Artillerie), edged with silver bullion tape. The sleeves display the same arrangement of black material with silver bullion tape of an Unteroffizier. Two silver buttons adorn each sleeve. The shoulder straps are red with a yellow “MW” on them. The tunic’s interior, along with the plain buttons on the shoulder straps, confirms that it is a high-quality, privately-purchased tunic. The tunic’s interior is lined in gray and black silk. The lining is complete and in good condition. No ownership marks appear on the pocket, etc. The exterior is a fine wool gabardine. I see perhaps two extremely small moth nips on the entire exterior. This tunic is in EXCELLENT condition. It would make a superb addition to any collection.

    IMPERIAL GERMAN NAVY OFFICER’S CAP BADGE

    SKU: 13-1006

    $650.00

    This is a consignment item. It is a cap badge that was displayed in the front center of a naval officer’s schirmütze. It measures 2 ¾ x 3.” The badge is made of fine gold bullion, including the Hohenzollern Crown that was emblematic of the crowns seen on all naval items. The bullion extends to the laurel leaves that encircle the badge’s kokarde. These varied according to officer’s duties. This particular variety is for an officer who served aboard a Kaiserliche Marine ship.
    Its kokarde is gold bullion with a red center, indicating the Reich rather than a particular State. It sports a different type of cloth as its backing on the reverse. The obverse’s bullion displays a wonderful patina that just shouts that it is one-hundred-plus years-old. The patina and its honest wear assure us that this is the real deal.
    It is a marvelous example of these hard-to-find cap badges.

    IRON CROSS – 1914 – 2nd CLASS – PRIVATELY-PURCHASED – ORIGINAL PRESENTATION CASE

    SKU: 09-1020 XMB

    $350.00

    IRON CROSS – 1914 – 2nd CLASS – PRIVATELY-PURCHASED – ORIGINAL PRESENTATION CASE

    This is a consignment item. It is a striking 1914 Iron Cross 2nd Class in the original presentation case. The red leatherette case measures 1″ x 2 ½” x 3 ¾.” Some scuffing on its surface indicates honest age. The interior’s upper half is covered with white silk. Stretched across that white silk is a white and blue ribbon that is embossed with an Iron Cross’s outline. The dates 1914 and 1918 flank the Iron Cross on either side. This band’s white and blue colors lead me to believe it was manufactured in Bavaria. The silk band permits the EK’s ribbon to be stored behind it. The case’s bottom half is lined in with burgundy velvet that was NOT fitted to hold the EK’s pin.
    The Iron Cross itself is a very high-quality example. The paint on its obverse is quite pleasing and rates at 98%. The cross’s frame features an excellent patina. A hallmark appears on the jump ring, but I cannot decipher it. The ribbon attached to the cross is well used, with significant shredding/running in its silk. This handsome 1914 Iron Cross 2nd Class and presentation case’s quality indicates that it is a privately-purchased, post WW I example.
