 WWI Imperial Germany and Austria



G-1795  Fabulously RARE!! WWI fabric sliced from the left side of a Foker D-VII fighter by  WWI Canadian pilot, Captain A.W. Carter of the 210TH Squadron. According to a letter written to historian James Parks in 1982 upon presenting him this trophy, he claimed it as his last victory while serving as flight commander of RAF 201 Squadron. He then comments on copies of photos Parks will display with the fabric. All except the news clipping are copies. Foker D-VII, #8492 is listed as a War trophy brought back to Canada, so he may have damaged it in a way that was repairable or the trophy records may be wrong. Luckily we have the statement from the man himself! Fabric has been affixed to the backer board and must be shipped mounted.  47 x 38 inches overall. The photo of the D-VII is just to show where it was removed and is a sister aircraft. This type of fabric virtually never comes up for sale. Don't miss it. Yes, shipping will be expensive. $19,995

G-1806   When I first saw this hat I thought it was a replica! It is unworn and must have been found in a depot. Never been on  a human head. Why?? It is only a size 6 3/4!!  It must be the smallest size available and most Germans could not wear it. Like some of the mint unissued Pickelhaubes that are found in mint condition. just too small. anyway cherry mint with Wurttemberg and national cockades. $375$SOLD$

G-1676  AMAZING WWI German Dog collar and message tube I was lucky enough to recently locate. The collar was part of a lending collection from a northeast museum and still resides in the same box that it has occupied since 1967. It has been in 2 institutions. The first was in 1919 and it was then given or transferred to this organization in 1949. We can tell this from the museum artifact numbering system. Tube is painted a very light gray and still remains on its original collar. The mounting bands are solid copper. Reverse shot showing the square shape of the metal brackets. They must be loose so the two sections of tubing can be pulled apart. There are quite a number of styles of these tubes but the wide flat bands are typically German. The last photo shows one in the collection of the IWM. The messenger dog was a common sight in some areas of the Western Front. They proved loyal and willing to serve their masters in what they perceived just a game, unaware of the it's deadly nature. Only one I know of outside of the Imperial War and Australian War Museums!!! $2995

The complete set pictured, courtesy of James Julia Auctions was one of just a few known to exist and one of the only ones EVER SOLD. This Trench Periscope Rifle went for $16,000!!! with rifle and scope. Rifle and Scope were worth about $1000, so the Periscope set went for the equivalent of $15,000.!!  Most likely one of the only ones you will ever see.
