WWII/Holocaust era metal encased cigar box of the Ordnungspolizei German Police
32570549
Third Reich 'Ordnungspolizei' (regular police & emergency services) cigar box: brass colored metal-cased wooden box with emblem of the Nazi regime's police affixed on top; not maker-marked; 8 x 11.1cm, 213.2g. The emblem displayed is the definitive version bearing the left-facing eagle above a wreathed Swastika, adopted as the Orpo's emblem well before WWII. The base is covered in black felt. The Nazi-era regular German Police encompassed some 34 different functions, including forestry and foodstuffs - as well as military formations and participation in the implementation of the Holocaust. The Orpo was one of 3 police forces in the Third Reich (next to the Sicherheitspolizei (Sipo) "security police" which include the Gestapo, and the Sicherheitsdienst (SD) "security service [of the SS]") - all equally unsavory in the annals of the Holocaust: the Orpo fielded the "Police Battalions" tasked with the mass murder of Jews in the East, while the "Einstazgruppen", tasked with the same, were subordinated first to the SiPo and then to the SD (though it actually drew much of its manpower from the OrPo); the "green police" as Anna Frank called them at the time of her arrest, were members of the OrPo (whose uniform was green). The lower-right top edge of the wooden inncer-case has been chipped off; there are apparent glue marks on the left and right inner walls of the wooden box. Unusual.

WWII collaborationist Nazi East Europe Im Dienst Der Sicherheitspolizei brassard
31370552
Nazi occupied Eastern Europe "Im Dienst Der Sicherheitspolizei" ('In service of the security police') green armband w/black printed text; length: 36cm. Issued to members of paramilitary forces raised locally by the Order Police (Ordnungspolizei, green-uniformed police subordinated to the SS) or the Sicherheitsdienst (SD, 'security service' of SS), and known as "schutzmannschaft" ('protection troops'); as such, involved in anti-Semitic & anti-partisan operations. Some say issued 08/1944 to non-combatants or to guards of foreign prisoners, but use of green armbands for such auxiliaries dates back to 1941 & this may pre-date 1944.

WWII original photograph related to Estonian 20th Waffen-SS Division, Brody 1944
47270553
World War II curiosity: German military press photograph captioned at back "Brody 16 July 1944" and issued by the 20th Waffen-Grenadier Division of the SS (the 1st Estonian Division), whose circular stamp is on the back (the FP number may be a 'feldpost', field post office number) - however, the soldiers depicted are in Wehrmacht (Army, not Waffen-SS) uniforms, and the 20th Division at this time was fighting further north, in Narva, and not in Brody. Brown-toned paper, light surficial dirt on top left area of front; otherwise mint. This item is being presented as a genuine article but its circumstances are unclear.

WWII original photo related to 600th SS Parachute Battalion & Luftwaffe, 1943
45270554
World War II curiosity: German military press photograph captioned at back "Eastern Front 1943" and issued by the 600th SS Parachute Battalion (SS-Fallschirmjäger-Bataillon 600), whose circular stamp is on the back - however, the soldier seen in the BMW-marked side-car of the motorcycle sports the Luftwaffe styled eagle and Swastika patch (over his right pocket) - and the 600th Battalion was only formed in October 1944, being an obscure and little documented unit associated with Germany's commando hero (and future Mossad contract-agent), Otto Skorzeny; its predecessor, the 500th Battalion was formed a year earlier from Waffen-SS members only, and made operational only in 1944. Brown-toned paper, slightly curved; mint. This item is being presented as a genuine article but its circumstances are unclear.
