A very nice deep brown hard shell Luger holster. The reverse side of the holster in its original brown , Profusely stamped with an ink stamp for Army Corps 11 ‘B.A.XI’. Marker marked and clearly dated ‘1918’ under the flap. On the reverse side of the holster to the lower section marked ‘L.Z.A.’ with a Prussian style eagle with the lettering underneath ‘H.Hannover’, we believe this to be a leather quality control stamp. Good strong stitching overall, interestingly the rear leather quality control stamp would have had to been stamped prior to the construction of the holster. All buckles complete.
A good example of the universal field grey green cap with peak, mainly used by drivers. Prussian enlisted ranks cockade and national cockade. No moth. Fully lined. Regimentally marked ‘JR71’ with the date ‘1918’. Complete with its correct strap. Very small size.
A good complete set of the 3rd pattern body armour, which has had restoration, there are certain areas of surface corrosion, all of the straps on the reverse side have been restored and riveted, the exterior has been repainted field grey green but still an excellent example and is priced according to the restoration.
A rare and excellent condition model 1868 Uhlan helmet for the Saxon Ulhan Regiment 17. The earlier Uhlan helmets had much larger mortarboard tops than later examples, they also had the unusual feature of the double strengthened rear skull. This helmet is in superb condition for its age, the mortarboard top has crazing to the leather overall, the skull is absolutely smooth, no damage or repairs, crazing to the front peak. It is complete with its correct small size Uhlan Saxon front plate, domed chin scales, white wool ribbed rabat with just one moth nip in the area of where the Saxon field cockade wires slide into. It has its hook for the decorative fahnschnur (cap lines) which are of the enlisted ranks style. The interior liner all complete, undamaged and supple, hand painted into the interior skull ’17.u.2.e.III’ with faint traces only of the original owner’s name label, which has been removed. A rare helmet from this early period of Imperial Germany.
A good example of the one-piece stamped steel Prussian enlisted mans belt buckle with its original brown leather tab, which is maker marked and dated ‘1918’.
A rare pair of stitch-on shoulder boards for a Hauptmann in a Marine See Battalion. Subdued weave with red and white fleck, subdued Marine square edged raised crowns. Nice used pair as removed from a tunic.
A very nice condition ersatz bayonet, good blade with the hilt and the scabbard retaining much of its original field grey green paint. Minor indentations to both the front and back of the lower section of the scabbard. Rifle fitting system in place and working correctly.
A scarce item of Austrian field equipment being the officers field belt worn by Marine land base troops of the Austrian Empire during WWI. A standard brown leather Austrian belt with clear manufacturer’s marks and logos to the rear with the rare two-piece high quality bronze naval infantry buckle to the front being the crown banker with scrolls either side and the oak leaf and laurel leaf surround. These belt are manufactured as one unit and therefore cannot be changed as with other German/Austrian buckles. The leather remains good and clear. Some of the original grey felt lining cloth is present however much has disappeared with time.
