  • Mica Wirtschaftkasten personal effects box


    The ultimate collection of Pocket Litter.
    This “Mica Wirtschaftkasten” was one of the most luxuous pieces of private purchase pocket litter. This set was commonly gifted to sons going to war, bought by officers or bought at barracks stores. This kit basicly had all the items a soldier would need to keep clean and organised. The Mica comes with a basic set of period personal items and was designed to fit inside the M31 messkit.

  • Awesome late signal whistle with original lanyard


    A very hard to find detail to finish a NCO display. This original German army issue signal whistle made from white horn with its original field gray lanyard is in mint condition. Many commands where given with whistles during combat and the use and recognition of the different signals was something most soldiers would have known.

    Many private purchase or paramilitary whistles can be found for sale but only very little military issue whistles. To top it off this one comes with the original lanyard and is in mint condition!


  • Philips Bi-Jou hand dynamo torch


    A nice small private purchase torch in good working condition. The more luxurious version of the green Knijpkat. Made by Philips in Vucht. A nice small torch in a period handmade pouch!

  • Stunning 5 Liter SMM41 water container


    A nice and usable 5 liter Trinkwasser water carrier.
    These carriers where first introduced around 1941 probably due to the hot climate in Italy and Africa. These are becoming hard to find and are a good and secure way to take drinking water to the front. This one still has most of its original paint and stencils and is in very good condition!

    The canister is clean. It has not been used to store oil, gasoline or other poisonous substances. I have drunk water from this one myself last summer.

  • Period bakelite razor


    A nice and usable period Bakelite razor made in France. This unscrews and works perfectly and would be perfect for living history!

  • Beautiful pre war pocket knife


    A beautiful pre war French pocket knife. This knife has a lot of small  fold out accessories and is marked “AUVERGNE SOCIALISTE” which was a French Socialist movement in the Auvergne region between 1930 and 1940. This knife is big and heavy. The sides have been lined with bone and it shows signs that it wasn’t a cheap knife at the time, either. This is the nicest pocket knife I’ve had to offer, ever.

  • Original card of 14mm pressed paper buttons


    A great original set to have as a spare, these paper buttons where used on numerous items! For instance; most if not all German service shirts have pressed paper buttons. These where also used in the sleeves of hooded smocks and winter parkas. The size of the buttons is 14 mm.

    A complete card with 72 buttons for 25 euro including worldwide shipping.

  • Original “last ditch” Feldgrau m43 cap buttons.


    These are mint, unissued M42 / M43 “Einheitsfeldmütze” buttons. These are executed in “Feldgrau” and imo of the last wartime model. I’ve never encountered these before!

  • Belt support strap hooks for m36/m40 tunics


    These small hooks are always missing in m36/m40 reproduction tunics. They are not belt hooks but keep the belt hook support straps in place. Every m36/m40 tunic had two of these sewn to the inside. I will pick out matching sets when I ship them. The price is for two hooks!

  • Original wooden toothbrush


    Original period toothbrushes. One of the best known characteristics of wartime toothbrushes is the fact that the “brush” part is very long. The toothbrushes are made out of wood. I would consider using one like this as it is as new. Toothbrushes weren’t a issue item, they where private purchase. A civilian toothbrush like this is is what the German soldier would have.

    Worldwide shipping is included!
