WW2 Japanese Good Luck "yosegaki hinomaru" Flag

The Good Luck Flag, known as yosegaki hinomaru in the Japanese, was a traditional gift for Japanese servicemen deployed during the military campaigns of the Empire of Japan, though most notably during World War 2. The flag given to a soldier was a national flag signed by friends and family, often with short messages wishing the soldier victory, safety, and good luck. The Japanese call their country's flag hinomaru, which translates literally to "sun's circle", referencing the red circle on a white field. When the hinomaru was signed, the Japanese characters were usually written vertically, and radiated outward from the edge of the red circle. This practice is referenced in the second term, yosegaki, meaning "sideways-writing". The phrase hinomaru-yosegaki can be interpreted as "To write sideways around the red sun", describing the appearance of the signed flag. Normally, some kind of exhortation such as Bu un Chou kyu is written across the top within the white field. Loosely translated into English, Bu un Chou kyu means "May your military fortunes be long lasting." Dark, medium-sized characters may normally be seen that run vertically down the right or left hand margin of the flag. These usually occur in one, two or three columns and are generally the names of the man receiving the flag, and the name of the individual or organization presenting the gift to him. The kanji characters were typically written with a calligraphy brush and ink. While it was normally the custom to sign only around the red center of the flag, some examples may be found with characters written upon the red center as well. For the military man stationed far away from home and loved ones, the hinomaru yosegaki offered communal hopes and prayers to the owner every time the flag was unfolded. It was believed that the flag, with its many signatures and slogans would provide a combined force or power to see its owner through tough times. Furthermore, it reminded him in a material way to do his duty. The performance of that duty meant that the warrior was not expected to return home from battle. Often, the departing serviceman left clipped fingernails and hair behind so that his relatives would have something of him in which to hold a funeral. Great honor was brought upon the family of those whose sons, husbands, brothers, and fathers died in the service of country and Emperor. The belief of self-sacrifice was a central one within Japanese culture and was much exalted during World War 2.

WWI US Army Doughboy Helmet Rough Textured Paint

US Army Doughboy helmet. As issued during WWI. The M1917 helmet was made of manganese steel with a fixed liner and leather chinstrap with sliding buckle.

WW1 German Pickelhaube Helmet

The Pickelhaube (plural Pickelhauben; from the German Pickel, "point" or "pickaxe", and Haube, "bonnet", a general word for "headgear"), also Pickelhelm, was a spiked helmet worn in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries by German military, firefighters, and police. Although typically associated with the Prussian Army, which adopted it in 1842–43, the helmet was widely imitated by other armies during this period. Aside from the spike finial, perhaps the most recognizable feature of the Pickelhaube was the ornamental front plate, which denoted the regiment's province or state. This helmet is missing the front plate. The most common plate design consisted of a large, spread-winged eagle, the emblem used by Prussia. Different plate designs were used by Bavaria, Württemberg, Baden, and the other German states. All-metal versions of the Pickelhaube were worn mainly by cuirassiers, and often appear in portraits of high-ranking military and political figures.

The jack of the United States of America is a maritime flag representing United States nationality flown on the jack staff in the bow of American vessels that are moored or anchored.

"The jack is flown on the bow (front) of a ship and the ensign is flown on the stern (rear) of a ship when anchored or moored. Once under way, the ensign is flown from the main mast." For most of U.S. history, the primary jack design has been the blue canton with stars (the "union") from the U.S. national ensign. The blue fielded, white-starred jack is referred to as the Union Jack, not to be confused with the Union Jack of Britain, which has the same name but a different design. Made during WW2 (U.S. involvement 1941-45) at Mare Island, California, Headquarters of the Pacific Fleet.

Original Painting of Hitler by Heinrich Knirr

This historical painting by Heinrich Knirr, referred to as “Hitler’s official painter”, was meticulously restored in 2004 by Barry Bauman of the Barry Bauman Conservation. The painting measures 87 ¾” high and 57 1/4” wide and depicts Hitler in life size although Hitler was 5’ 8” and the painting portrays him as 6’ 2”. The painting was donated to a museum in 2003 and restored in 2004 where it has been hanging ever since. There is no known documentation on how the painting was saved or made it to the US but a story suggests that the portrait was liberated by one of the first American soldiers to enter Munich, Germany, in the spring of 1945. The soldier intercepted two Czechoslovakian men running down a street carrying a large object, which turned out to be the painting of Hitler. The painting had remained in a closet for 50 years before being donated to the museum. It was believed that Hitler only sat for one painter, Heinrich Knirr and that Knirr painted 5 portraits of him with 4 being from photographs and one from an actual sitting. This rare piece of history is the only known full size painting of Hitler by Heinrich Knirr and has never been offered to the market before. Please note that the lines seen in the pictures are reflections from the plexiglass protective case. The painting wasn’t removed for pictures. The painting is located in Indiana and will ship from that location. Buyer is responsible for all packing and shipping.
