Show Time for Military Collectibles

By Peter Suciu

A large collection of SA and SS honor daggers was for sale at SOS this year.

It was almost as if an Imperial German Hussar fell back in time. This impressive costume features many of the key details of the elite Prussian cavalry.

Two British regimental drums flank numerous German spike helmet badges. On the shelf is an original 1887 Swedish Guard spike helmet. These helmets were made in Germany and exported to Sweden, which still uses a similar pattern helmet today.

Almost enough uniforms to outfit your very own “Thin Red Line.” This includes a selection of World War I British and Canadian Highlander uniforms.

An original German railway eagle, perfect for dressing up that basement bunker or war room, and available for sale for a mere $2000!

  1. Over 20 yrs ago I was thrilled to visit the home of Mrs. van Kirk..buying her husband book collection, 400 of his model planes etc. AND UNTIL RECENTLY, THOUGHT HE WAS DEAD!

    Now see with excitement a jolly happy senior sitting at a table on your site!

    I would be very happy to make contact with him. I have just retired from a 37 yr Out of Print Bookstore…and as my email suggest, I was a sgt. in the Womens Royal Air Force, hence my excitement when I bought some of his *estate*…

    Very plesaed to fall onto this site. regards all..I have 6,000 military books.
