Original M-16 Helmet (Item WEHR 14-1)

DESCRIPTION:Here is a classic original M-16 helmet in beautiful condition throughout. It has a great liner with a dress-style, patent-leather chinstrap. Fine condition of eagle decal (the national colors may once have been refurbished a bit at the black part) done during the period. The helmet once had a name inside, but now is obliterated. The paint shows natural age, but still very good. The size is large probably a German ’58.’ Nothing is replaced. This is 100 percent original and rare as hen’s teeth in this condition. If you are looking for the ultimate M-16, this probably is it.

PRICE:  SOLD

Official U.S. Army Chart of German Uniforms (Item WEHR 14-3)

DESCRIPTION:This is a U.S. Government chart that showed the uniforms of the German Wehrmacht field gear--tropical and mountain. It was published in 1944 and prepared by the Morale Services Div. A.S.F. War Dept. in New York. It is a very accurate portrayal of these uniforms in correct detail and color. Newly very nicely framed, it is quite large measuring 26 x 21 inches. It had been folded on four folds, so fold lines do show when closely viewed, but it remains in good condition and would make a great addition to a military collection either American WWII or fine German uniform collection. This is 100 percent original; not a reprint.

PRICE: $165.00; original

German Hand-Grenade Thrower in Porcelain (Item WEHR 14-6; ART 6-3)

DESCRIPTION: This is without a doubt one of the finest figure porcelains of the Third Reich. Yes, Allach, in general, is considered the number one in elegant and meaningful porcelain, granted, but some of its notoriety (in lieu of a better word) is based on the fact that it was owned by the SS. In fact, there were other firms that produced porcelain just as fine, such as the old and renowned companies such as Meissen, Mettach, Rosenthal, KPM, and the company known as “Oldest Volkstedt Factory” founded in 1887 and produced commercially from 1915 to 1945. The name in German was Aelteste Volkstedter Porzellan Fabrik in Unterweissbach Thuringia, Germany. This is a large porcelain piece; larger than any Third Reich figure ever produced by any of the other prestigious firms. It measures 20 inches across the base and is 17 inches high. The distance from the hand grasping the grenade to the extended hand is 19 inches. This sculpture is large. The figure is familiar to collectors who have seen it depicted in various sizes. But this one is the largest. The distance from boot tip to boot tip is 18 ½ inches. The width across the base is about 7 inches. We have had this figure in this size in bronze and also have handled figures one fourth this size. But we know that this figure was produced in porcelain on a very limited basis. Only two have ever shown up in collections. The detail is quite fantastic. The Luger holster, bayonet, etc., are realistically detailed in extreme authenticity. There may be some artistic license in the helmet decals, but this is to be expected. This is an extremely rare and elegant representative art piece depicting the heroes of the European struggle in action. Its name is Der Geist der Deutschen Soldaten (“The Spirit of the German Soldiers”). It was designed and produced by Volkstedt and the artist was known by his signature as Soppel (see signature photo). These sculptures were seen in the headquarters of various Wehrmacht units, especially for infantry companies in the early months of the war and prewar times. They would grace the foyers of the showplace barracks of the elite regiments. The bronze ones sometimes still turn up in Germany. But the porcelain one is practically unique and was probably cherished by whatever unit counted it along with the company standard as a virtual treasure. This would have to be the crowning achievement and most treasured item in the finest Wehrmacht assemblage. This is for the collector who suddenly discovers or perhaps astutely realized that there is more than Allach in the N.S. art world. This figure should rival in rarity, desire, and price the greatest Allach piece ever produced and probably there were fewer of these ever made than the Allach SS flag bearer or the color SS rider. The quality is 100 percent on par with the finest Allach edition ever produced. We have never, ever, seen any porcelain piece that could be competition for this piece. The price is not even completely reflective of the real worth of this stupendous Third Reich art masterpiece of the porcelain sculptors’ art. We have shown in our heading an actual advertisement for the Rudolstadt-Volkstedt company depicting the very piece that they were so proud of. This was featured in the Leipzig paper at Christmas in 1941.

Grouping of Wehrmacht Soldier’s Equipment (Item WEHR 14-8)

DESCRIPTION: We present here a nice group of original German Army soldier’s necessary accoutrements:
   1. German Army canteen. It is missing part of the retaining strap, but otherwise is in great shape.
   2. German Army gas-mask canister. The mask is missing and the filters, but canister and strap are intact.
   3. German Army bread bag. Original, but the Landser who owned it sewed a button under the flap: probably a memento from the dress of his mom, wife, or loved one as a talisman of remembrance or luck. The button is of mother-of-pearl composition.
   All the above are offered in a special package deal.

PRICE:Special! $225.00 for all

Mappe (Portfolio) of the Field commander, Adolf Hitler, and his Marshals (Item WEHR 14-10; AH 11-2)

DESCRIPTION: This is an incredible large folder of professional photography produced by Hasso von Wedel, a major of the general staff. The pictures are 15 x 19 ½ inches and they have inner-embossed professional photographic edges. Each has a thin paper see-through, web-effect protective sheet over them and attached at the top the photographic effect is spectacular and the images are crystal clear. The marshals are all there and the pictures of the Führer and the Reichsmarschal Göring are naturally first. Then we have Keitel, von Braushitsch, von Ronstedt, von Loeb, von Bock, List, Kluge, Witzleben, von Reichenau, Milch, Sperrle, and Kesselring. While understanding that these pictures on heavy cardboard-style stock are originals, you must also recognize that if singled out and framed they would bring hundreds of dollars each. There are some explanation inserts as well at the beginning of the folio with listing of the marshals. All the pictures are in excellent condition. For the expert archivist or historian this is a wonderful and important grouping.
