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.

This insignia is constructed from stamped aluminum, with nice detailing throughout the flower. The interior petals are washed in gold. There are holes in the petals so the insignia can be sewn to a cap or uniform.

A fine looking cap Edelweiss here.

A great item to display with a Luftwaffe collection, or to complete a rare Luftwaffe cape.

ASSORTEDINSIGNIA #37248 Unidentified Wings with Swastika Insignia
The reverse has a single prong, the other has gone missing. I do not know the pedigree of this set of wings; perhaps it comes from the German commercial airlines?
ASSORTEDINSIGNIA #37187 Gold Driver's Insignia
The reverse has only one prong remaining, the other being lost to time. The gold color driver's insignia would have been the highest grade of this type.

This Army Long Service Ribbon is a blue color with a small silver open-winged eagle and swastika attached at the front. The detail to the bird is quite good despite its diminutive size. The ribbon itself is neatly shaped in the form of a bow. It has a button back, presumably for application to a lapel of a civilian suit.

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
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 canon. 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
This Propeller Insignia has good detail throughout and it appears meant to be attached to a collar tab, presumably to designate flight personnel. 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.
This DAF Pin has a silvered surface and it is about 3/4 inches in diameter. The borders of the pinhave the toothed cog wheel and inside is a floating immobile swastika. The swastika has some visible texturing to its surfaces. On the reverse of the pin there can be seen single prong, which would have been used to attached this insignia to uniform.
