ASSORTEDINSIGNIA #29429 RLB Member's Door Identification Disc
This RLB Member’s Door Marker measures 3 inches in diameter. In the center it is vaulted outward and features a silver sunburst having a black mobile swastika in the center. This was the insignia of the RLB. There is a lined border area which has the raised out name of the organization and the purpose all in black on a gray background. It is printed in Gothic letters, “Reichsluftschutzbund Mitglied” or “Government Air Raid Organization Member”. This disk has been factory lacquered so that it would have been protected from the elements as there are two holes on the diameter where nails or screws would have been placed to apply the insignia to the owner’s front door area. The insignia is together with its original paper separator as I’ve purchased a number of these still in the paper directly from the 101st airborne veteran who brought them back. These RLB member’s identification disks make for a great decorator item to display next to an RLB dagger or other memorabilia. Each insignia comes with the original separating tissue paper.
Unissued Mint. $150.00
ASSORTEDINSIGNIA #43996 Imperial Starburst Insignia
It is in the shape of a starburst that encloses the slogan "Eurenhtlas und Treue". In the center is an Iron Cross with what appears to be a crown in the center.
I do not know what this insignia was used for but it is very well made, with four brackets on the reverse for sewing it to a uniform.
A good looking item here.
ASSORTEDINSIGNIA #42836 Imperial Artillery Brass Insignia
The insignia is in the form of an oval wreath of oak leaves enclosing crossed cannons and dated "1914". At the top of the insignia is a detailed Prussian crown.
I'm not sure what this is; perhaps it was worn on a pickelhaube? In any event it has good gilding and much eye appeals.
Excellent Plus. $75.00

ASSORTEDINSIGNIA #42896C Luftwaffe General's Gold Cape Eagle
This eagle is constructed of gold bullion thread and it is really expertly detailed with contrasting threads. The eagle flies to the viewer's left and clutches a god swastika in his talons.
This cape eagle does not appear to have ever been affixed to a cape and remains in mint condition.
A really terrific item here, perfect to add to a Luftwaffe display, or to a cape if you are fortunate enough to have one. This is a rarely seen insignia.
ASSORTEDINSIGNIA #42583C Diplomatic Corps Cap & Sleeve Insignia
The sleeve insignia measures 4 ½ inches by 4. It is sewn to a dark blue wool background with some moth damage to the upper left and right area. It is woven with an aluminum Diplomatic eagle which looks to the viewer's left. The bird clutches a wreathed swastika. The bullion is done very nicely, with contrasting shiny and matte threads. The talons and swastika contrast against the matte wreath. Below the bird are two bullion stars. Surrounding the lower portion of the eagle is a wreath of oak leaves with the same shiny/matte bullion treatment as the bird.
Accompanying the sleeve insignia is a cap insignia, also on a background of dark blue wool. There is no moth damage on this piece. It consists of a matte bullion wreath with shiny stems. In the center is a bullion cockade with a red center.
A very beautiful pair of Diplomatic insignia here that are almost never seen these days. These are some real key pieces for the avid insignia collector.
ASSORTEDINSIGNIA #40832 Luftwaffe Cape Eagle
This massive Luftwaffe Cape Eagle is a real beauty, measuring about 7 inches wide. The eagle is constructed of finely woven aluminum bullion on a dark blue base. The bird has a slightly open beak and it clutches a mobile swastika.
The reverse of the insignia has a paper backing stamped "Karl Lotz / Muhlheim / Main".
A great item to display with a Luftwaffe collection, or to complete a rare Luftwaffe cape.

This piece is all set to be added to your pickelhaube.
Near Mint. $195.00
I am not exactly sure what this insignia is but I do know that the Prussian crown as well as the Hohenzollern family crest and that is what appears in the center of the is insignia. It is a gilded brass design with an open-winged eagle atop the crown. Below the family crest is a set of crossed cannon.
There is a double band which no doubt tells the meaning of all this for those out there who may be able to translate it. “Krieger & Landwehr Verein / Hohenzollern Halberstadt”. This fine gilded brass insignia is attached to a round woolen device and on the reverse is a vertically running pin.
I think that this may be a club that consists of possibly veterans who worked for the Kaiser’s family but I am not sure. I have never seen this insignia before and I think that it is quite interesting.
Excellent Plus. $125.00
The reverse of the insignia is marked with an RZM within a circle in the center. This would lead me to believe that the insignia was made for one of the political organizations such as the SA or Hitler Youth, both of which had flying sections.
An interesting piece here with two prongs intact on the reverse.
