#G2212 Period Framed Studio Photographs of Two Heer Officers
Original WWII German period studio photographs in frames of two young German Heer (Army) officers. These photos came together, and we think they are either brothers or close family and these photos at one time both hung in the same house. One photograph still has the original glass, the other the glass must have broken at some point and is now missing, however, it did not damage the photograph and could be easily replaced. We believe these are the original period frames. The frames are a nice displayable size measuring approx. 9" x 12" (Inches). This is a nice pair of studio photographs for any collection or display. $200

#BP8 Pre-WWII Kriegsmarine Photo Album of Kürt Krüger
Original pre-WWII German Kriegsmarine (Navy) Sailor's photo album that once belonged to a young sailor named Kürt Krüger.  The album shows the life of a sailor in the Kriegsmarine in the years leading up to WWII. There are many photos of K​ürt and his friends, and he is easy to spot in many of photos in various uniforms. There are photos of his schooling and graduating class. There are training photos in various ships including early U-boats such as U-1 and several photos from training inside these vessels. There are some post cards put in the album from various bases and monuments. There are photos from operations, including photos from missions in support of the Spanish Civil War. Other photos include Kriegsmarine exercises and demonstrations, as well as some general sights such as jumping dolphins and life on the ships. A few of the photo corners have been replaced, and when the photo album was found it had a loose edelweiss flower picked for good luck and sandwiched in one of the pages which is now protected by a clear archival sleeve. Album contains 100+ photos, post cards, and Kürt's swimming qualification. We have not done further research on the group, Kürt likely did not survive WWII, based on the fact he was eventually training on u-boats and those crews had the highest casualty rate during the war and there is no photos from once hostilities began. This is a unique opportunity to see life in the pre-WWII kriegsmarine, showing the uniforms they wore, their training, as well as places and vessels they sailed. *Sold*

#BP9 Heer Family Photo Album
Original WWII German wartime photo album from a family with many members serving in the German Heer (Army). Many impressive Heer uniform shots, including very clear shots of enlisted uniforms model M36 to M43 and one soldier holding a Jäger field cap. It appears some of these soldiers were stationed in France, as it seems most photos with structures are in Germany and France, as well as some French road signs. Some post cards have also been placed in the album, which is pretty typical. We have not done any research on this large family album, and we are not sure how many photos may or may not have information on the reverse. A very nice and in depth wartime Heer album with 250+ photos from a family that was deeply involved with the organization. *Sold*

#G2019 Death Card for Franz Lindbauer a Fallschirmjäger KIA Battle of the Bulge
Original WWII German death card for Franz Lindbauer who was a Fallshirmjäger killed in the Battle of the Bulge 9 January 1945 in Luxemburg. From the German War Graves Commission "Franz Lindlbauer is now resting in the war cemetery in Sandweiler among the unknowns. He could not be unequivocally identified during the remodeling work in the original grave site, so he was buried as an "unknown soldier" in the Sandweiler Cemetery. Name and personal data of Franz Lindlbauer are also listed in the memorial book of the Kriegsgraberstatten. You are welcome to order an excerpt from us. Please note that some Freundhofen do not have the current version, so your relative's name may not be listed there yet. If Franz Lindlbauer is related to you, and you want to be informed by us about changes in status, please fill out the form below. Please carefully check on the basis of your documents, whether it is really your relatives. If you are not sure, please state this in the text box of the form." A FJ death card for a soldier killed in the Battle of the Bulge is very uncommon and desirable. *Sold*
