Bavarian Military Service Order, 4th Class with Swords by Gebruder
Hemmerle of Munchen
Nice medal in silver with swords for combat The only issues with enamel
are on the front and back tips of the bottom of the cross which is
minimal. The swords are marked 900 for their silver content and the back
of the cross is marked "GH" for Gebruder Memmerle of Munch and 950 for
the silver content. This particular order would have been presented to
Captains or Lieutenants. The swords were pinned to the medal and are for
combat awards. This medal would date from 1905-1918.

WW1 Era US Navy Buckle (False Two-Piece)
Here is a nice WW1 era US Navy buckle. This example has the eagle
looking up and to the right instead of the left. As you can see this is
a false two piece buckle that would have had a catch mounted on the
other side of the belt.

U.S. Marked Mess Knives WWI-WWII Era
U.S. army mess knives. We haven't quite been able to put a date on these
as they don't match up with any documented model number. All of them
still have traces of the nickel plating. Each one has the "U.S." stamped
into the handle. They were manufactured using a two part process. The
blade is added to the handle and then soldered. Judging by the design I
would say these were probably produced in the WWI Era but could possibly
be earlier. I bet you probably don't have one of these in your mess gear

Rare First Model LP08 32 Round
Clip for the German Artillery Luger.
Here is an excellent and very rare dug
item. This is an excavated 32 trommel magazine for the WWI German
artillery Luger or Luger Carbine. Most of these are found in unissued
condition. Here is an actual war used piece. The housing plate is gone
exposing the spring and crank. These are very expensive in non dug
condition. This would make an excellent addition to your WWI German
Measures: 5" x 3.75"
Battlefield Pickup Relic French Mle 1886/93
Here is a very nice WWI vintage French Lebel rifle that was picked up in
France many moons ago. This piece was brought back and was part of a
large group of excavated/pickup relics from France. It is in relic
condition. It appears that the barrel is plugged and is probably the
reason the gun was discarded. There is still a little bit of the stock
remaining. You can clearly see the manufacture date of 1915 near the
receiver. There was a little bit of green paint that was dropped on the
end of the barrel but it would easily clean off. This would make an
excellent gift for the WWI enthusiast or it may look even nicer hanging
on your wall.
