Depicting Adonis holding the Olympic flame and a bell having an eagle grasping the Olympic Rings in its talons, and the legend "call the youth" on the lower rim, it appears to be cast from a non magnetic material, and is complete with a hanging loop to the reverse.

2nd Model Navy Dagger-Eickhorn Unusually for Eickhorn produced Navies, this piece has a dark orange solid celluloid grip, more often associated with WKC produced daggers. This grip has a small chip adjacent to the pommel, caused probably by over tightening of the pommel, whilst twisted brass wire decoration remains perfectly aligned in the grooves. There is good definition to the pommel, the eagle having fine breast feathering and distinct talons gripping the wreath and swastica emblem. Crossguard has fine depictions of anchor and acanthus leaves with well defined "nipples" to the ends of the arms. The blade release button is a little loose but still performs perfectly. Plated blade has no damage to the edges, a needle sharp tip, and well executed "fouled anchor" etch. The Eickhorn 35-41 seated squirrel trademark adorns the reverse ricasso area, and a thin blade washer remains in place beneath the crossguard. Brass based scabbard has one very small "railway carriage" dent to the lower reverse scabbard. The overlapping leaves on the scabbard bands show some minor loss of definition as do the triple serrated rings, testimony to the fact that this dagger was carried for many years. A nice example of a dagger that saw service.

A First War British National War Savings Committee Badge Bronze gilt with red and black enamels, maker marked "THOMAS FATTORINI BIRMINGHAM Ltd" on the reverse, Just over an inch in diameter. Excellent enamelling to the obverse, curved lapel fixing stamped with a number, partially legible. During the First World War, the Swastika was adopted by the National War Savings Committee, who issued war bonds at 15s.6d. each. The bond in effect was a loan to the Government, to help fund the war. Advertising slogans stated that "for 15s 6d, 124 cartridges could be bought for a soldier at the front." The value of the bond would increase annually so that after five years, it would be worth a Sovereign (£1 sterling). It could be cashed in earlier by the investor. However 15/6 was a large sum of money for many poorer families so 6d (six pence) savings stamps were issued (also with a Swastika on them) which could be purchased weekly or whenever people could afford them. After thirty-one stamps had been bought, the bond or certificate was issued. There were also small square enamel badges, which were of a similar design as the stamps, and were given to the stamp sellers to wear.

Austrian? Fire Officials Dagger This spectacular piece appears to date from early in the 20th century and clearly has an association with a fire department.

Designs on the grip include axes, hoses, shovels, spanners and water buckets, all carved in high relief. Centre of the crossguard has a fire helmet upon crossed axes, all finished in equally high detail. Scabbard shell appears to be a wooden base clad in leather having line decoration to the obverse with a seam to the reverse. Obverse of both scabbard fittings have amazing repousé decoration to the obverse consisting of crossed axes, helmets, trumpets, floral detailing and a pair of stunning serpents which appear to squirt water to dampen the flame from a torch-superb!!!!

Bahnschütz - Third Reich Drinking cup desk ornament An intriguing metal goblet standing some 4.5 inches in height and apparently void of any makers mark. To the base of the goblet is a rope banding, whilst affixed to the front face is an interesting insignia, having marvellous detail, which appears to combine the emblems of three Third Reich organisations: the Cogwheel with inset swastica of the TENO, the Lightning flashes or "Blitzbundel" of the Postschütz and the winged wheel of the Bahnschütz or railway service. Beautifully made and clearly of the period, this item is worthy of further research.

Raised from the surface is the date 1944, the town name of "Antwerpen" and the number 348692. When used to transport human freight during this period, the fate of the occupants of the car can only be imagined. An item from the darkest era of human history. Yellow paint mostly present, some period wear to edges.

Thick leather is approximately one inch wide and has twin decorative lines running close to both edges. An excellent suspension device for a dagger.

Dutch NSB Commemorative Medallion for German Sympathisers This medallion measures 40 mm and is struck in fine bronze. The obverse has a swastika at the centre, with a wolf hook, or wolf's angle, over it. From the base of the swastika is the root of a rose bush that throws up two branches to form a wreath round the swastika, which meet at the apex with two rose flowers on either side of the wolf hook. Around the trunk of the rose and over the branches runs a chain, snaking its way to the edge of the medallion on either side. From this point, on the left-hand side, runs the circumscription in raised, capital letters, 'LOTSVERBONDENHEID . 10 - 14 MEI . 1940', which translates to, Fateful Union . 10 - 14 May . 1940. The reverse has a raised 1 mm edge line and a flat central field. Across the centre in raised capital letters, is the two line inscription, 'SAAMGEDREVEN DOOR HET LOT, VEREEND IN GEVAAR', this translates to, By Destiny Drawn Together, United in Danger. There is a small wolf hook in a circle at the beginning of the second line and a swastika in a circle at the end. Above the inscription is the circumscription in similar raised capital letters, 'DIETSCHERS EN DUITSCHERS' and below, 'VERBONDEN IN DE TOEKOMST', which translates to, Dutchmen and Germans Allied for the Future. The medal was designed by NSB-member and artist F. Gerdes. All examples were made by the 'official' Dutch medal producing company 'Koninklijke Begeer'. Mussert instituted this medallion or Gedenkpenning in the autumn of 1940 for all those who had, in May 1940, been interned by the Dutch authorities on account of their political sympathies. Besides NSB members, also German Citizens that were interned in the Netherlands during the same periods could receive the medal. The obverse design, according to the official description, stated that emblematically the thorns represented suffering, the roses the chastening effect of suffering and the broken chains, liberation. The medallion could, in exceptional cases, also be awarded to Germans who had made outstanding contributions to the cause of understanding between the German Nazi Party and the NSB. A special gold medallion was awarded three times to, the Reichskommissar Arthur Seyss-Inquart, Fritz Schmidt the general commissioner for special affairs having the special responsibility for liaison duties with the NSB and SA Oberführer Siebel, who acted as liaison officer between the Nazi party and the NSB. In excellent condition with one hole drilled at the upper edge presumably for hanging as a pendant.

Early SS Dove Head Artillery/Police Sword This early piece is a fascinating example from the early days of the Reich, being an Imperial/Weimar style artillery NCO sword, modified with the addition of a Third Reich police eagle pinned professionally to the obverse Langet, possibly used by an early recruit into the service who opted to use his existing sidearm until issued with a standard piece. Dove head hilt is somewhat dull with age whilst sharkskin grip is complete with perfect twisted brass wire banding having no loose ends or missing threads. Obverse Langet has police eagle pinned through, whist reverse langet is stamped "69.A.6.10." Information which will doubtless pin down the regiment in which the owner once served.

Grip is a fine piece of stag, upon which are three acorns. Recurve crossguard has acorns at each tip. This acorn decoration is repeated on the upper scabbard fitting by way of a lug for the frog. This brown leather frog has a folded top to accommodate a wide belt and a typical "V" type notch in the sewn on "shoe". Wrapped around the frog is an original solid green Portepee. Blade is etched with typical floral scenes, hunting dogs and shooting targets and is in good condition, with a green felt blade washer in place beneath the crossguard. The Alcoso scales logo is stamped to the reverse ricasso. Black leather scabbard is in good condition with minor loss of finish to the obverse and with a perfect seam to the reverse.

Gauleiters Armband This amazingly rare armband is believed to have belonged to a Senior Political Nazi Party Leader from Allenstein in East Prussia. This government region was created on 1 November 1905 as the third East Prussian Regierungsbezirk out of the southern districts of the two original administrative regions,Gumbinnen and Königsberg, which had been established in 1815. It comprised the south of the former Duchy of Prussia; the lands of the Allenstein and Rößel districts had belonged to the Prince-Bishopric of Warmia, annexed by Prussia in 1772. In 1920 all the Allenstein Region plus the District of Oletzko was part of the Allenstein Plebiscite precinct, with the electorate voting for remaining with Germany by more than 97%. Erich Koch (19 June 1896 12 November 1986) was a Gauleiter of the Nazi Party in East Prussia from 1928 until 1945. Between 1941 and 1945 he was Chief of Civil Administration (Chef der Zivilverwaltung) of Bezirk Bialystok. During this period, he was also the Reichskommissar in Ukraine. After the Second World War, Koch stood trial for war crimes in Poland and was convicted in 1959. He was sentenced to death, but this was commuted to life imprisonment the following year. This double sided armband is richly woven with gold thread upon a light blue and yellow background. Wear commensurate with age.

The top section of the badge has a semi-circular border inscription GAUTREFFEN 1938.GAU POMMERN.STETTIN. A retaining pin is soldered to the reverse. Stettin belonged to Germany until 1945 as a part of the state of Prussia, province of Pommern. During WW2, Stettin was a major centre of weapons industry. 65% of Stettin's buildings and almost all of the city centre, seaport, and industry were destroyed during the Allied air raids of 1944 and the heavy fighting between the German and Soviet armies in April of 1945. After WW2 the German territories east of the Oder-Neisse line were given Polish administration. Even though Stettin is located west of the Oder-River it also was given to Poland. The entire German population was then expelled from their homes to East Germany. Stettin is now the Polish town of Sczezin. The 1990 German reunification treaty acknowledged its territorial losses to Poland, one of the costs of starting WW2.

While there certainly WAS a regiment (and later a division) called "Grossdeutschland", it was an ARMY Regiment and NEVER was anything to do with the SS.

Hitler \"Skull\" Stamps On 5 April 1937, Germany issued a souvenir sheet of stamps in honor of the 48th birthday of Reich Chancellor Adolf Hitler. In the center were four identical dark green 6-pfennig stamps showing the face of the German leader. An inscription at the bottom of the sheet read "WER EIN VOLK RETTEN WILL KANN NUR HEROISCH DENKEN" ("He who wants to save his people must think heroically"). The OSS produced a propaganda parody of this sheet meant to attack and ridicule Hitler and the Nazi Party. One of the earliest mentions of the propaganda sheet appears in Forged Stamps of Two World Wars, by L. N. and M. Williams, Verdant Press, London, 1954: "The Allied propagandists represented Hitler on numerous occasions as the personification of death itself, and this idea was expressed in several parodies of stamps put out by the Allies during the later stages of the war. The first intimation philatelists had that a Hitler "death's head" or "skull" stamp existed, came when the Roosevelt collection was dispersed. During the second auction a miniature sheet of four, copied from the miniature sheet issued by Germany in 1937 to mark Hitler's 48th birthday and with the same inscription at the foot but with each stamp showing a skull and a row of crosses as the centerpiece, realized 90 pounds. Extremely rare OSS distributed set.
HJ Album-Landjahr HJ boys and BDM girls did 8 months service on the land which was called "Landjähr". This was apparently for children who finished school at age 14 as well as older youths. The Landjahr program was only mandatory for university students. There were apparently boarding facilities in rural areas. At a typical camp the children were awoken at 6:00 in the morning for exercise or sport. Accommodation varied. Some were newly built or modernized facilities, others were more make-shift arrangements. A typical day involved a morning salute, farm work, care of animals, marching, singing, outdoor games, and communal living. The program was different for boys and girls and included military training and gliding classes for the boys. This album is beautifully hand annotated in süterlin script and has a variety of intimate shots showing numerous activities including gliding, hiking and trips into the Alps. The Nürnberg Tiergarten zoo is also well presented. Nice album.

NAPOLA Film Flyer Fantastic flyer for the 1941 film "Kopf Hoch Johannes" literally translated as "Chin Up Johannes" an educational propaganda film set in the Oraniensburg Napola school Upon his mother's death, fifteen-year-old Johannes von Redel returns to his father's rural estate in Prussia. Johannes has been living with his mother in Argentina for the past ten years, and he has grown up as an urban, decadent, and fastidious Auslandsdeutscher (German living abroad), alienated from his German roots. He does not take to German life and finds himself in constant conflict with his father and with the local boys. His father decides to send him to the National Political Institute of Education Oranienstein, one of a number of elite Nazi boarding schools, where it is hoped that Johannes will learn about comradeship from the other students. These schools were designed to train the next generation of German leaders; they were administered by the Reich Education Minister (and later by the SS), and a boy had to be a member of the Hitler Jugend (Hitler Youth) to attend. Johannes begins poorly at the school, where fellow students ridicule his alien customs and behavior. It is only after accomplishing a heroic deed during a military autumn drill that he gains the comradeship of the elite pupils and is incorporated back into the Volksgemeinschaft (ethnic-racial community), fully reconciling with his father. Kopf Hoch, Johannes! is compelling in its authenticity. It was shot on location at Prussia’s Oranienstein, a real National Political Academy—or NAPOLA, as these select schools were called, where Scores of students appeared as extras. Although Reich Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels found the picture too blatantly propagandistic, preferring more subliminal messages, the film proved enormously popular with young German audiences and confirmed the merits of such youth-oriented productions. Three more soon followed: Jakko (1941) and two that are forthcoming from International Historic Films, Hände hoch! (Hands Up!, 1942) and Junge Adler (Young Eagles, 1944). This fold-out flyer has many shots taken from the film, and even includes a picture of a leader wearing his chained dagger! Excellent condition.

National Savings Scheme Administrators Badge The National Savings Movement established during the First World War used the swastika in its advertising and also on the badges awarded to the administrators of the savings scheme in recognition of their service to the nation. The swastika was originally from Tibet and was the symbol of the god Agni, the god of Fire, of Creation and whether facing left or right, with straight arms or curved, the swastika was always a symbol of good fortune. The swastika was worn as a talisman by German troops in the First World War and used in jewellery designs in America, on the robes of the Druid priests and of course as a logo for the National Savings Movement. The swastika became the symbol for militant German nationalism and was adopted in time by the NSDAP - the Nationalsozialistiche Deutsche Arbeiter Partei or NAZI party.

" Alles für Deutschland" motto is deeply etched and retains all its factory darkening. Both obverse and reverse have some minor age staining but much of this could be simply removed by the next owner if required.

Early anodised scabbard retains all its finish albeit with some rust marks predominantly to the reverse. All attachment screws are present, whilst the lower chape has some minor mis shaping to the ball. Attached to the upper fitting is an original, unusual leather hanger correctly attached. The original wooden display board has a dark blue velvet backing which has taken the shape of the dagger over the years. This item was obviously proudly displayed for many years both during and after the war by the family of the recipient, and now needs to find a home with a collector who will be equally proud of this outstanding artefact.

Plated blade grades mint having no age whatever in the surfaces, and a needle sharp point. Blade washer remains within the depths of the crossguard, whilst the upper reverse Ricasso is stamped with the Eickhorn 1935-1941 squirrel and sword trademark. Undented scabbard, scabbard bands and suspension rings are in perfect condition having dark backgrounding to the ultra crisp stippling and hand enhanced bands. A new-like original portepee is wrapped in the correct manner about the grip and crossguard.

The brocade straps and green velvet backings remain in excellent condition, with little to no wear and remain stiff when held in the horizontal position.

Leather blade washer still sits within the recesses of the underside of the crossguard.

Third Reich Army Officers Dagger-Eickhorn Although Eickhorn were probably the most prolific of makers of Army daggers during the period of the Third Reich, the quality of their products never faltered, and this example from perhaps the busiest production period, 1935-1941, is no exception. Highly detailed thirteen leaf pommel sits atop a highly desirable semi translucent "orange juice" style grip which is undamaged. Ferrule and crossguard demonstrate Eickhorns renown attention to detail and are superbly finished, particularly the feathering to the magnificent eagles breast. Bright blade has no nicks to the edges and a pin sharp tip. The Eickhorn seated squirrel trademark is etched to the upper reverse ricasso. Scabbard has no loss of finish and retains the single reverse mounted throat retaining screw. Some desirable age patination is forming amongst the stippling.

Undamaged trolon grip has aged to a beautiful mustard yellow. Much hand enhancing to the pommel acorn leaf decoration and to the ferrule and crossguard, both of which retain the majority of factory darkening in the background. This darkening makes the beautiful crossguard eagle particularly prominent and emphasises the detail to its breast and wing feathering. A brown leather washer remains beneath the crossguard. Bright blade is in mint condition and has the F.W. Höller trademark of a thermometer etched to the upper reverse ricasso. The detail to this etch is astounding! Scabbard has no dents or loss of plating and has a single screw to the reverse which retains the scabbard throat. Scabbard bands and rings properly attached. An exceptional example for the money.
Third Reich Army Officers Dagger-Kolping Hand enhanced pommel cap having most artificial aging remaining and with no damage to the rim. Undamaged Amber coloured grip has even age toning throughout its length. Good detail to ferrule, some loss of definition to the crossguard eagle almost certainly due to the wearer rubbing the crossguard with his thumb whilst standing on parade. Bright blade, which is complete with washer within the recesses of the crossguard has some age staining which could probably be removed by the next owner if desired. "Kolping" trademark is prominent to the upper reverse ricasso. Some mild smoothing of the pebbeling adjacent to the upper scabbard band, again probably due to the owner holding and absent mindedly rubbing the piece. Some minor bubbling to the finish on the scabbard sides. A nice piece at a great price with fascinating signs of personal wear which really tell a story!

This mark is partially hidden beneath the crossguard. Scabbard is undented with good stippling and properly attached bands and rings.

A perfect blue leather blade washer still resides beneath the crossguard. Both brass, inset cross guard swasticas are present and retain the silvering between the legs.

Third Reich Hunting Cutlass Portepee/Troddel This astonishing item was the identifying accoutrement worn on the magnificent sidearms of members of the The German Hunting Association (Deutsche Jägerschaft) headed by Reich Hunting Master Hermann Göring.

Numbered "26" to an inner surface, this would be a useful spare or interesting period collectable in its own right.

Third Reich Kreigsmarine Dagger-Weyersberg Classic example from the less common manufacturer Paul Weyersberg having a pommel and crossguard made of fine brass, and both remain in nice condition. All of the checkering on the breast of the bird is crisp, as is the raised swastika and wreath of oak leaves. The crossguard features the usual fouled anchors on each side and acanthus leaves on the quillon arms. The guard arms end in buttons with large nipples in the center. The grip is off-white celluloid over wood which almost looks like ivory, being nicely toned. This grip is perfect and remains tightly wrapped with twisted brass wire. This wire has trapped years of residue between the wire and the surface of the grip. The scabbard is straight throughout and retains patches of guilding especially in the area of the bands. It features the standard lightning bolt pattern engraving, along with the usual palmettes, ermine feet, and acanthus leaves. The carrying bands are raised out and feature overlapping oak leaves. These bands show virtually no wear. The eyelets are the plain type. The throat is retained by a pair of headless brass side screws. The bush-putton release is the style that is drilled into the crossguard, rather than the notched type. The double etched blade remains mostly bright, with some minor age but nothing too bad. The original etch also shows some modest wear but can be easily seen. It is a standard fouled anchor etch. The reverse ricasso is etched with the Weyersberg Sword & Wheat Stalks trademark. A period Portepee remains wrapped about the grip in the standard naval tie. This Portepee is in exceptional condition. A textbook Weyersberg piece here in excellent collectible condition.

Third Reich Kriegsmarine Administrative Belt Buckle This administrative official's buckle is cast from aluminium and reflects a matching aluminum surface in mint condition.

The perimeter of the buckle has highly detailed overlapping laurel leaves. The center of the buckle has a lined background. Raised out of the center is a large detailed fouled-anchor.

Undented lightning bolt scabbard having excellent detail to scabbard bands and serrated ring carriers. Complete with correctly tied portepee .
Third Reich kriegsmarine Dagger Perfect for the beginning collector, this late war dagger has several interesting characteristics. Well detailed eagle pommel and fouled anchor crossguard still retain evidence of guilding. Curiously, both ends of the crossguard have evidence of splitting damage, the splits flowing vertically in the plane of the blade. Off white grip has lost its wire binding. Unmarked, double fullered plain blade is in excellent condition having only the slightest signs of age with no nics or damage to the cutting edge, and with a needle sharp tip. Lightning bolt style scabbard is of plated steel construction, and has lost some of its plating mainly around the area of the scabbard bands probably due to swing wear. A fascinating example ideal for a collector of variations or perhaps someone on a tight budget.

Twin fullered plain blade has no damage to the edges or tip and some blade staining which could be greatly reduced with careful cleaning. The WKC knight head logo is on the upper reverse ricasso, beneath which is a waffenampt, the letter "M" and the Depot number "N.386" Typical WKC hammered scabbard has one small dent to the lower edge. Scabbard bands remain crisp, whilst the scabbard ring eyelets are also engraved with oak leaves. An unusual dagger with several unique features.

Nicely detailed eagle pommel and crossguard retaining elements of guilding within the depths. Celluloid over wood grip in excellent condition with twisted brass wire completely intact. What appears to be varnish remains within the grooves on the grip, but this is missing overall. A long -in -place navy type portepee is wrapped about the grip, but this is not in the normal navy wrap, but rather tied in army fashion, this could of course be re-wrapped at the taste of the new owner but as mentioned does appear to have been in place for some time. Blade has the standard fouled anchor etch but does appear guilded overall, particularly to the reverse. This blade has a needle like point and is stamped with the Eickhorn "over the shoulder" trademark. A blade washer sits beneath the crossguard. Scabbard is the standard lightning bolt and acanthus leave mix, and has mild " railway carriage" denting, but is in overall good condition with some guilding remaining. Scabbard bands are well detailed with triple serrated eyelets. An unusual navy dagger worthy of further investigation.

Third Reich Kriegsmarine Dagger-Plain Blade Excellent detail to eagle pommel and cross guard. Twisted brass wire complete to Ivory coloured grip. Blade washer in place to upper Ricasso which is devoid of any maker mark. Plain double fullered blade with minor scratches to both cutting edges but retaining a needle sharp tip.

Third Reich Kriegsmarine Dagger-Scabbard Only Heavy brass scabbard is the usual icanthus leaf and lightning bolt design having traces of guilt within the recesses of the design and some small "dings" only noticeable near the tip. Scabbard bands have nicely designed oak leaf and acorn ornamentation, whilst the triple serrated rings are smooth. One of the scabbard throat screws is missing
Third Reich Kriegsmarine Dagger-Unmarked An interesting piece having good detailing particularly to the pommel which has an unusually well detailed eagles head and wing structure.

Excellent twisted brass wire binding. Traces of gilding in recesses of well detailed cross guard. Plain, plated, double fullered blade is void of maker mark, and retains its plating with just a few age spots in the surface. Brass lightning bolt scabbard in excellent condition has triple serrated scabbard rings and separately applied scabbard bands. One small "railway door" crimp to tip.
Third Reich Kriegsmarine Divers Knife-Henckels Period knives like this are very rare. Not only were they of limited manufacture but unlike dress daggers of the period they were designed to be a tool, used and abused in a day's work. Consequently few survive today in anything like collectable condition. This example is in excellent condition showing signs of use, but not abuse. Brass tube body is undented with correctly attached suspension bar. Rubber sealing washer is complete despite many years of compression, and has served to protect and preserve the bright blade from seawater damage astonishingly well. This blade is virtually mint having very few signs of age in its surface. Cutting edge is razor sharp with no nicks or damage at all. On the broad ricasso is the stamped "twins" maker mark of the renown J.A.Henckels of Solingen firm. Heavy tapering grip has a couple of minor chips, and a fixing screw in the pommel which has been removed at some time in the past but is almost perfect. The screw thread which secures the scabbard to the knife is perfect with no signs of cross threading or other damage. A rare opportunity to complete a naval collection with one of the most unusual blades of the period. NB. A Johnsons Reference Books invoice for this item is available to the purchaser.

Third Reich Luftwaffe Generals Degen-First Model This Degen was produced in the '60's by the WKC firm in Solingen, and, whilst not as desirable as a period piece, it not only fills a space in a collection which would otherwise remain empty due to cost, but it is also very collectable in its own right. Beautifuly crafted in a heavy metal and guilded, pommel, "P" guard, crossguard and finger guard are highly detailed and reflect the Eickhorn period production in every way. Needle sharp plated blade has etched floral details and blued panels having "In Dankbarer Anerkennung" to the obverse and "Der Oberbefehlshaber Der Luftwaffe" and a facsimile of Goerings Signature to the reverse. It is this incorrect vintage title of Goering that identifies this piece as the WKC 60's entry. Scabbard appears period in every way, having brass upper and lower mounts with leather having line decoration. A rare opportunity to obtain a "reproduction" piece which is a collectable in its own right.

Third Reich Naval Sword-Braun Berlin Although void of a maker mark, the design of this sword would indicate manufacture by Weyersberg. Lions head pommel is superbly finished and retains much of the guilding within the folds of the lions mane. This design has no gemstones within the eye sockets. Backstrap, "P" guard and folding basket guard are superbly detailed and retain much original finish. Upper blade Ricasso is marked with the distributors name of "Adolf Braun Berlin", a well known uniform supplier to the Reich, and is additionally stamped with the number O 2476, indicating that this sword would have been on stock at East See Flotilla (Ostsee). This number is repeated on the basket hilt and on the upper scabbard fitting. Wrapped about the hilt is a typical navy portepee having the stuffed "anus" we like to see on naval knots. This portepee has welded itself to the grip over time and has wear at the obvious swing points. Plain, pipe backed blade is some 30.5 inches in length having some age in the surfaces. Leather scabbard is in good order having a seam running the length of the reverse. Scabbard fittings retain most of their finish and are secured by wide brass staples to the scabbard. The upper fitting is missing this staple and is subsequently a little loose, however with the staple gone, it is possible to read an assembly number stamped in the fitting, being "150", this number doubtless repeated beneath the remaining staple. Naval Swords in this condition are becoming very difficult to acquire.
Third Reich Naval/Army Dagger Portepee This knot is in excellent condition and has the "cats anus" fill to the acorn which has become associated with the naval dagger, although in reality this would be just as appropriate to an early army dagger. No fraying to the cord, slide still in place, stem and acorn having that marvellous "pressed flat " look that we all like to see on original portepees that have seen service. The perfect partner to a near mint dagger. N.B. We have a number of portepees in conditions ranging from very good to mint. Please ask.
Third Reich Navy Dagger-Hörster An honest example of the Kriegsmarine dagger having some guilding remaining amongst the overall brass finish. Great details remain to the hand enhanced eagle pommel having distinct wing and chest feathering, legs and swastica wreath. The grip of the dagger is of carved wood covered in off-white celluloid. It remains in perfect condition throughout and is tightly wrapped with twisted brass wire. It is interesting to see the residue of many, many years trapped in the recesses of the grip ribs. The crossguard features fouled anchor center blocks and a pattern of acanthus leaves on the quillon arms. The button ends are well defined. The fouled anchor etch to the blade is in excellent condition with most grey background frosting remaining, and with a needle like tip. A blade washer is in place between the crossguard and the blade locking device, whilst the E & F Horster trademark is boldly displayed on the reverse ricasso. The scabbard is also a fine example, perfectly matching the toning seen on the hilt fittings. It is the lightning bolt type and has only the most minor of "railway carriage" dents. The decoration features palmettes around the bands, and lightning bolts, ermine feet, and acanthus leaves on the lower portion. The bands are nicely done, featuring a pattern of overlapping oak leaves and acorns. The eyelets are the triple serrated type. An excellent example of an honest dagger showing period wear.

SA rune and political eagle show great detail,and are correctly positioned and inset in the obverse. Lower crossguard is gau marked "Nm" and is numbered "31050".

Third Reich Photo Album Period album having multiple images of Hitler Youth members and their families, in the mountains, marching, skiing, etc, along with hand written notes.
Third Reich Photograph Album to include \"Dr Robert Ley\" Cruise Ship An interesting family album of photographs commencing with a family holiday to Switzerland in the 1932 and concluding with wedding groups of Officers with uniforms, swords etc. What raises this album above the norm is the inclusion of photos taken from, and onboard, the Dr Robert Ley, a ship launched to prove to the German workers the truth behind the KFD organisation, who considered that: "The purpose of the Kraft durch Freude organisation is to show the less fortunate the wonders and beauties of their nation. It opens opportunities to the people that formerly were reserved for the well-to-do." Launched in 1938 and handed over to the DAF organisation on March 24th 1939 to offer cruise ship sailing to the masses, she served in this role for a mere two months before being used for transporting soldiers back from Spain following the Spanish Civil War, and by August of 1939 she was re commissioned as a hospital ship to serve the Wehrmacht. The photos included in this album can therefore be accurately dated to April or May 1939, and considering this short time "Robert Ley" spent in service, must be considered somewhat rare.

Black, quality one piece leather loop is sewn at the lower edge to enclose the wide Spring clip which is in equally fine condition and operates perfectly. Missing from most hewers.
Third Reich RAD Hewer Hanger These first official pattern hangers for the hewer are extremely hard to come by particularly in this condition. The enormous weight of the the hewer was just too much for an all leather hanging device, consequently very few survived intact. Particularly appropriate for a full stag grip hewer, this item would be equally suitable for a later piece as, clearly, a new second pattern one with metal components would only have been purchased once the original had failed. Dark brown high quality leather shows wear only to the "swing" area of the lower loop, with some ultra minor loss of finish around the buckle area. Complete with the often missing cross strap which bears the same edge decoration as the main hanger. A remarkable, undamaged survivor with wear only commensurate with age and period use.
Third Reich rad Leather Suspension Hanger This hanger consists of a wide belt loop with two attached leather hangers, each of which terminates in a spring clip.

In excellent condition with no damage or loss of colour to the brown leather, or off white stitching. Nickel spring clips somewhst rusty in part, but would clean up if desired. An interesting and well conditioned set.

The massive but piecemeal Zulu attacks on Rorke's Drift came very close to defeating the tiny garrison but were ultimately repelled. Eleven Victoria Crosses were awarded to the defenders, along with a number of other decorations and honours.

WW1 British National War Savings Committee Lapel Badge A First War British National War Savings Committee lapel badge. Bronze gilt with red and black enamels, maker marked "THOMAS FATTORINI BIRMINGHAM Ltd" on the reverse, 29.2mm in diameter, and with an unreadable reg. number stamped into the lapel support. Excellent detail with very minor imperfections to black enamel. During the First World War, the Swastika was adopted by the National War Savings Committee, who issued war bonds at 15s.6d. (15 Shillings & six pence) each. The bond in effect was a loan to the Government, to help fund the war. Advertising slogans stated that "for 15/6 124 cartridges could be bought for a soldier at the front." The value of the bond would increase annually so that after five years, it would be worth a Sovereign (£1 and one shilling sterling). If need be, it could be cashed in earlier by the investor. However 15/6 was a large sum of money for many poorer families so 6d (six pence) savings stamps were issued (also with a Swastika on them) which could be purchased weekly or whenever people could afford them. After thirty-one stamps had been bought, the bond or certificate was issued. There were also small square enamel badges, which were of a similar design as the stamps, and were given to the stamp sellers to wear.

WW2 Field produced Soldering Tool This fascinating item appears to be a field produced soldering or braising tool, consisting of a wad filled copper tube set inside a 1942 dated 20mm cannon shell case. Presumably the shell case would have been filled with petrol? Which would have burned through the wad or wick forming a very hot base on top of the tube.

\"Waffen Loesche\" Bayonet Frog This brown leather frog was removed from a Luftwaffe Forestry Service bayonet distributed by the Waffen Loesche concern. Constructed from a soft, malleable leather having stitched edges and a separately applied "shoe". Lug hole is used but not damaged.
\"Wintershilfswerk\" Badges A collection of seven badges, all seemingly plastic. The Winterhilfswerk (WHW) was an annual drive by the Nationalsozialistische Volkswohlfahrt (the National Socialist People’s Welfare Organization) to help finance charitable work. Its slogan was "None shall starve nor freeze". It ran from 1933-1945 and was designed to provide food and fuel to Germans. The Hitlerjugend and Bund Deutscher Mädel (boys' and girls' associations, respectively) were extremely active in collecting for this charity. Donors were often given small souvenir gratitude gifts of negligible value, of which these are examples.
