Ring of the Condor Legion (Item LUFT 5-2)

DESCRIPTION: This is a ring made by Moroccan natives in Spain and sold to the Heldenfleiger of the Legion Condor in 1936. It is a handsome silver ring. Some of them have a thin, gold appliqué on the details. It has the (always) odd-looking eagle and swastika with the LC logo of the corps and various squadron markings on different ones that we find; sometimes P-188 and others might say Ju-88 or Me-109. Below this is the word España, Spain. The ring is a little bit crude when under the glass, but is a very rare item and quite pretty when worn and (not) under the glass. A great momento of the heroic battles against international communism. Germany sent the idealistic young Teutonic warriors to support General Franco against the red brigades to include America's rag-tag malcontents and Bolshevik street people, "The Abraham Lincoln Brigade." Completely original.

PRICE: $950.00

Luftwaffe Pilot Observer Badge (cloth) (Item LUFT 5-5)

DESCRIPTION: This is a fine-condition Luftwaffe award badge in bullion on cloth. This, of course, is as much an award as the badge would be in metal. Nice condition except when viewed from the back. You can see the stitching holes around the edge where it was sewn on a uniform. It's in three tones and is very nice.

PRICE: $385.00

Award to Messerschmitt (Item LUFT 5-6)

DESCRIPTION: This is the ultimate item in historical documents of the Third Reich. It the award of the highest Hungarian medal to Prof. Ing Willy Messerschmitt by Milklos Horthy, 1868-1957, the Regent of Hungary and an admiral in WWI. A bitter enemy of the Russians and a hesitant ally of Germany and Hitler. He was forced to abdicate in 1944. The method used was the successful kidnapping of his son by SS Commando Otto Skorzeny and his special-unit team. Messerschmitt was the designer of the Luftwaffe's most widely used fighter aircraft. He was a personal friend of Rudolf Hess, who had been a wartime pilot, and Göring, who also was a Kampfleiger, was his friend as well as best customer. The design for the Me-109 was accepted by the Luftwaffe in 1936. This became the workhorse of the German Air Force and was in action throughout WWII. The Me-110 was also a great success. His last wartime plane came into service too late to have its full effect; the world's first jet fighter, the Me-262. It was flown only in small numbers from 1945, outclassing any allied fighter. Its design was begun in 1938, but Göring's production plans for the Luftwaffe ruled it out and the Führer did not fully understand that this and nuclear development would have been the key to Germany's complete victory. The document is 16 ¼ X 11 and was presented with the medal the Order of the Holy Crown of St. Stephen that was founded by Admiral Horthy March 3, 1942. Messerschmitt was given all five classes of this medal. The certificate is believed to be for the Grand Cross commander. (Please correct us if we're wrong!) The document and all five of the medals were taken by a GI from a Luftwaffe command post near Köln in the Rhein, but he traded off four of the orders for chewing gum and cigarettes. He kept the document and the one medal shown here. The case is not original. We placed it there for protection of its fine enamel. The medal is one of the most beautiful of WWII. The detail of the crown an swords is practically unbelievable. The wreath around the center contains tiny red stones. The medal is in beautiful condition as is the document. There really are not many articles of looting that could be considered better than this. (An incredible find.) Sold as a set-document and Order of St. Stephen.

PRICE: Sold

Pewter Remembrance Piece (Item LUFT 5-7)

DESCRIPTION: This is a lovely pewter plate from the famous Zinn Pewter Manufacturers of Nuremberg, Germany. It is typical of the better Zinn products of the region. This one depicts the old city of Nuremberg and its famous wall. This platter was purchased by officers of the Luftwaffe First Abteilung Flak-Regiment 8 and it was presented to their regiment's commander from the grateful comrades. Six signatures done by the engraver appear at certain points of the platter. Unfortunately, at the 12 o'clock position there is a repaired hole where someone tried to solder a hanger on it. Not terrible, but there!. It measures 16 x 11 ½ with all the official Zinn marks and stamps on the back and the name of the producing firm 66 Ley-Haus Nuremberg . Very nice for the Luftwaffe collector and Germanophile.

PRICE: SOLD
