1 SIDE TO THE NSDAP CAPE CLASP-RARE. The NSDAP cape would appear to be extremely rare as Clark does not show an example of an existing specimen. And now that I think about it, I don't even remember seeing a period photo of one being worn. This example is different to the example shown in Jeff Clark's book. It is two piece gold aluminum of the highest quality. It is the catch side & the catch features an oak leaf motif. It has a silver aluminum backing plate with 4 gold colored flat pins. The example shown in Jeff's book is one piece, with oak leaf borders & a rope pattern on the catch. The eagle's wings also have a different design. Why the difference-I don't know. This is a very rare piece & a gem if you have the matching piece & need to complete the set.

RARE ANTI-ENGLAND CARD DEPICTING GERMAN & ITALIAN BOMBERS ATTACKING ENGLAND. When I first saw this card, I was transfixed by the image showing Italian bombers alongside German bombers attacking England. I had never heard of any mention of Italian bombers joining in the assault on England. So I googled it. Indeed there were 2 squadrons of Italian bombers based in Belgium for about 6 months. They were ineffectual playing a secondary role & were quickly withdrawn for the Italian assault on Greece. Card is actually an Italian card & was postaly used. It has the 'ARMA AERONAUTICA" emblem in the top left hand corner, & was mailed to a female in Bologna. Excellent.

RARE HJ PLAQUE RARE HITLER YOUTH PLAQUE/MEDALLION "FOR THE FURTHERING OF HITLER YOUTH HOSTEL BUILDING PROGRAMME". On 1st December 1936, service in the Hitler Youth was made obligatory for all aryan German boys between the ages of 15 & 18. The consequent expansion of the Hitler Youth led to a shortage of suitable accommodation (hostels, huts, parade halls etc) and to reward those who energetically assisted in the Hitler Youth hostel building programme, a silver (actually aluminium) medallion was instituted by Hitler in 1937. 70mm in diameter. On the obvserse is the HJ emblem surmounted by a scroll with the words "Heim der Hitlerjugend", (Home of the Hitler Youth) and on the reverse the inscription "Fur die Forderung der Heimbeschaffung der Hitler-Jugend". (For the furthering or sponsoring of the Hitler Youth hostel building programme). Eagle highly detailed & stands out proudly. Some wear to silver finish but highly collectible. A RARE, RARE PLAQUE.

RARE MODEL 1938 SS STANDARD BEARERS GORGET. Fine quality piece with chain. The center stability tang is slightly bent & marked RZM M1/128 for the firm of Eugen Schmidhaussler of Pforzheim. The green backing cloth is original to the piece & has an SS ink stamping. It is complete with the chain which may not be original. Many Model 1938 gorgets are missing the chains because they detach easily & get lost or misplaced. Many years ago, during the 1960's, Andrew Mollo was one of the leading collectors in the hobby. He obtained a few links of original chain & had them duplicated. This may be one of those chains. It is extremely well made but unmarked & includes the special circular center link.

RARE POLICE ART FOLIO WITH ILLUSTRATIONS BY KNOTEL. In 1939, an unusually named publishing company in Munchen named the "Brend'amour" Simbart & Company, published an art folio on the German police, with 13 high quality plates of all the new German Police uniforms, and followed it up later by publishing scaled down versions as postcards in a 20 card set. The folio has a police green cover with a silver embossed eagle with a black swastika. Most of the silver embossing has worn off. The plates are as follows;- Plate 1. Standarte der Ordungspolizei. (trooping the Police D.E. Plate 2. Schutzpolizei in Parade-Anzug. Plate 3. Schutzpolizei in Dienst-Anzug Plate 4. Gendarmerie und Schutzpolizei der Gemeinden Plate 5.

Verwaltungssbeamte der Ordnungspolizei. At the end of the folio are pages showing the organisation of the police. There is a reason why most collectors have never seen this folio. I only know of one in the US, and one in Australia. The postcard set is very hard to find as a complete set. The cards numbering from 14-20 are also hard to find. Not shown in the large folio is the Teno card as well as Gestapo & the Sicherheitspolizei cards.

RARE SA PENNANT ON WHITE BACKGROUND Triangular SA pennant. Most unusual type as it has a large 4 ¼” red chainstitched SA emblem on a white background. This is the only one I've ever seen.

RING WITH LARGE SWASTIKA. Large static swastika with 2 lines emulating from the swastika & going round the entire ring. There are 2 impressed stampings inside the ring. One says"FAMRNES" & the other is hard to read but I think it says "825". I believe it is original, but it is impossible to say for sure. The swastika on the front is tarnished. So, bottom line-if you like it-buy it. Actually its probably worth buying even if you don't think it period. Would be a nice ring to wear if you have the mettle to do so in this age of political correctness.
