October 2019  Highlights

 

 

Welcome to our October 2019 highlights.  All three highlights from the well-known Robert McCarthy collection, and all three acquired by McCarthy from Major (Rtd) Jack Angolia during the 1970s.

 


ULRIC of ENGLAND has been asked to dispose of the final pieces originating from the well-known USA-based Robert McCarthy Collection. We have picked three of the items as our highlights for October.

 


Our first highlight is quite unique. The Kriegsmarine U-Boat badge with Diamonds awarded to Kapitan Wolfgang Luth. The cased award was acquired indirectly from the Luth family in 1962, by the serving US Major, Jack Angolia. The award was later sold by Angolia to Robert McCarthy.

 


Our second highlight is a fine example of the Panzer Assault Badge in Silver for 50 Engagements. The Silver award only given to tank crews. This badge has a pleasant been-there-done-it appearance.

 


The third and last high light for October is an extremely rare example of the Waffen-SS Bergfuhrer breast badge. This badge worn by Waffen-SS mountain guides was introduced in 1944. Only about thirty mountain guides are believed to have been employed by the SS, which puts the rarity of this insignia into perspective.

 

 

 

Additional items of interest, include the Burre collection of edged weapons and more. These can be found by going to Collections For Sale on the top menu. We also have the Lawrence collection of Imperial German Iron Cross decorations, which can be viewed from the German Militaria drop down menu..

 

 

Lastly, do take a moment to check out our new category, Take A Pop. Here you will find heavily discounted end-of-consignments. Your chance to find a bargain without compromising quality.
