    Original WWII German COMMEMORATIVE MEDAL OF 1ST OCTOBER 1938 Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified

    $79.00
    Original WWII German COMMEMORATIVE MEDAL OF 1ST OCTOBER 1938 Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified. The Commemorative Medal of 1ST October 1938 was the second of the "Anschluss", (Union/Annexation), medal series and was introduced on October 18TH 1938, for award to civilians and military personnel who participated in the "return" of the Sudetenland to Germany. The award followed the same design as the earlier, "13TH März" medal, that commemorated the annexation of Austria into Greater Germany. The Sudetenland, with over three million German inhabitants, was a section of Bohemia that had been awarded to Czechoslovakia in 1919 by the treaty of Saint Germain en Laye signed between Austria and the allies at the end of WWI. Hitler claimed that the Germanic Sudetens were being persecuted by the Czech’s as the main premise for the annexation of the area into greater Germany. Hitler also contended that the Sudentenland would be his final territorial claim in Europe. At a meeting in Munich on September 29TH 1938 between Britain’s Chamberlain, France’s Daladier, Italy’s Mussolini and Hitler, without Czechoslovakian input, it was decided that the Sudentenland would be "returned" to Germany and German troops marched into the region on October 1ST 1938. Roughly, 32mm diameter, bronze washed, die struck alloy construction medal features two embossed figures symbolically breaking the chains of bondage with an unfurled national flag in the background and a high relief national eagle to the bottom of the obverse. The reverse features embossed Latin script to the center,"1 Oktober 1938", encompassed by additional script, "Ein Volk, Ein Reich, Ein Führer". (One People, One State, One Leader). The ribbon suspension ring and medal loop are both intact and the award comes complete with original ribbed, rayon ribbon. We have several in stock and will pick the best one for you.

Physical fitness of its personnel was a prime concern of the German Wehrmacht, (Armed Forces), including the navy, and each new recruit was issued a specific sport uniform that consisted of a pullover "tank top" style shirt, navy blue or white shorts, athletic shoes and a two piece "sweat suit" type sports uniform. Originally Kriegsmarine personnel wore a fouled anchor insignia on their sports shirts until regulations of August 25TH 1932 introduced a Unit Sports Badge, of an unknown design, that was to be applied to the front center of the sports shirt. On May 3RD 1935 the M35 sports shirt eagle for EM/NCO’s was introduced to replace the previously used Weimar era Reichsmarine, (National Navy, Circa 1919-1933), Unit Sports Badge.

    Original WWII German WAFFEN SS GEBIRGS-DIVISION DER SS “HANDSCHAR” Collar Tab Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified

    $249.00
    Original WWII German Waffen SS  Waffen-Gebirgs Division Der SS HandscharCollar Tab Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran.  In August 1929 the SS incorporated the wear of rank collar tabs on the left side of the collar and unit collar tabs on the right side of the collar of the service tunic. The SS rank collar tabs were originally adopted from the earlier rank collar tabs as utilized by the SA, Sturmabteilung, (Storm Troops). The SS collar tabs remained in usage through-out the war with a couple of minor alterations and numerous additions. EM/NCO’s collar tabs were piped in twisted white cord from their original inception until to October 1934 when the piping was modified to alternating twisted black and silver/aluminum cord piping. The final modification, in August 1940, eliminated all piping from the EM/NCO’s collar tabs. On February 10TH 1943 Hitler ordered the formation of a new Waffen-SS Division to be manned by volunteers from the Independent State of Croatia. This new division would eventually evolve into the 13.Waffen-Gebirgs-Division der SS "Handschar" (kroat.Nr.1), and was primarily manned from Moslems from the Bosnia-Herzegovina region of Croatia, with a cadre of German personnel from the 7. SS-Freiwillingen-Gebirgs-Division "Prinz Eugen". Due to the racial makeup of the divisional personnel Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler forbade wear of the SS runes on the collar insignia and it was decided that another suitable symbol be utilized and the distinctive collar insignia for divisional personnel was introduced on April 30TH 1943. Of Note: It is believed that SS-Obergruppenführer Gottlob Berger came up with the design of the collar tab and the name "Handschar". The "Handschar" refers to the scimitar featured on the collar tab and is meant to represent the blade carried by Turkish police in the Balkan region for centuries and was also featured on the Bosnian coat-of-arms during the reign of the Hapsburg Empire.   Black wool construction, right hand side, unit designation collar tab featuring a machine embroidered hand clutching a scimitar, with a canted swastika positioned just below the blade, all in silvery/grey cotton threads. The collar tab is mounted on a buckram backing. Superb, untouched original. . In excellent condition. A very reasonable price for an SS item.  Complete museum documentation (COA) Provided.
