African Zulu Stabbing Spear or Iklwa This interesting item arrived with a number of other period items purportedly discovered during an historic visit to the area of the Rourkes drift action in 1879 The Battle of Rorke's Drift, also known as the Defence of Rorke's Drift, was a battle in the Anglo-Zulu War. The defence of the mission station of Rorke's Drift, under the command of Lieutenant John Chard of the Royal Engineers and Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead, immediately followed the British Army's defeat at the Battle of Isandlwana on 22 January 1879, and continued into the following day, 23 January. Just over 150 British and colonial troops successfully defended the garrison against an intense assault by 3,000 to 4,000 Zulu warriors. 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. The iron spear head is heavily pitted with the remains of rust, but shows very little in the way of damage to the cutting edges. The socket which would have received a wooden shaft is still serviceable, enabling this item if required to be made whole.

Dagger Book An early publication from the days when there was almost no available information for those interested in collecting German daggers, this is an attempt by F. J.

To be considered now as more of a collectable book than a guide to collecting, this one would sit nicely with other initial publications of the period. In good condition and with a dedication and signature by the author to the frontispiece.

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 Customs Pattern Sword-WKC 1016 Describing any original item from the Third Reich period as “near mint” is clearly a misnomer-it is impossible for any artefact more than 80 years old to be factory fresh, however in the case of this, and indeed the other two swords to be placed on the site, it is the only word which sums up the overall condition of hilt, scabbard and blade on these remarkable examples. Crossguard eagle has the short pointy wings which is the feature that classifies this example as a 3rd Reich Boarder Custom officer’s sword, rather than an Heer sabel. The black grip remains in beautiful condition, and is tightly wrapped with triple twisted strands of decorative wire. A superb hilt assembly on this rare sword which is wrapped with an original mint knot. Scabbard has no dents or scuffs and is essentially perfect. Bright blade has the distinctive knights Head logo stamped to the obverse ricasso beneath the langet, as is common with these models, and has no loss of finish, nicks or other damage. If you collect only the best, do not miss this opportunity.

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. Triple etched blade is a little faded but has fine depictions of crossed cannons, armour, flags and floral designs. Minor rust spotting but no nicks or other damage to the cutting edge. Black painted scabbard retains much of its finish having one typical railway carriage dent to both obverse and reverse. Remarkable piece with much to be learned from its history.

Field Marshals Series Sword-Eickhorn This Zieten pattern sword is another of the three sword examples we recently obtained which are worthy of the description “minty”. During the mid to late 1930\'s, the Carl Eickhorn firm produced a series of swords named for famous men in German history. Named the Feldherrn Serie (Commander Series) by Eickhorn, collectors refer to this group as the \"Field Marshall\" series even through only 4 of the 9 actually held that rank. Original design drawings produced by Paul Casberg exist for most of the swords. The earliest drawing, for the \"Wrangel\" pattern, is dated 1936. The last drawings, for the \"Blucher\" and \"Roon\" patterns, are dated 1938. All of the designs were patented by Eickhorn and are usually marked \"Ges. Gesch\" on the bottom of the cross guard. The \"squirrel holding sword\" and the \"over the shoulder squirrel\" are the normal maker marks seen. This example, labelled model number 1734 in the Kundendienst has the 35-41 mark stamped to the ricasso. All of the gilded finish remains to the crossguard which has a perfect knot attached. The detail to the closed wing eagle on the obverse langet is outstanding as is the lion head pommel. Scabbard is perfect without dents or scratches, blade is mirror bright and pristine. A simply beautiful piece to satisfy even the most demanding collector.

Fire Leaders Dagger-WKC This long dagger was produced during the Weimar period but would have been worn into the Third Reich, with the addition of a variation leather hanger very similar to those worn with the HJ Leader dagger.

Typical WKC crossguard has conical ends to the arms and excellent detail to the centre blocks. A red felt washer remains beneath the crossguard. Double etched blade has fine depictions of fire apparatus and floral tributes with no nicks or damage to the edges. The WK & C makers mark is stamped to the upper reverse ricasso. Area near the tip shows minor signs of sharpening but this does not extend into the etched panels to any degree. Black leather scabbard has no damage with a perfectly intact seam to the reverse. Upper and lower brass scabbard fittings are perfect having tight staples. No collection is complete without the Fire leaders dagger, and this example would certainly fit the bill.
Forestry Dagger Frog Whilst trophy daggers were often “liberated” at the end of the war, the accompanying accoutrements were often discarded, making these items very hard to find. This is particularly true of the frogs and loops associated with the forestry and hunting services. This example is very dark green leather, with dark green stitching, a little of which is missing, however this could be simply repaired. Guilded box clip. Of particular interest is the makers name and a date stamp to the obverse, however this is particularly hard to make out. If you have a cutlass but not a frog, this rare item will fit the bill.

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.

Lee Enfield No 4 Spike Bayonet The No. 4 Bayonet was created to replace the current bayonet at the time in service which was the World War I vintage Pattern 1907 bayonet. It was the result of the British search for a new bayonet to replace the Pattern 1907 which began just after World War I which came to the conclusion around the beginning of World War II that the best replacement for the pattern 1907 bayonet would be a Spike type bayonet. This was then implemented which lead to the No. 4 becoming a Spike type bayonet. The design of the No. 4 Bayonet is said to have been taken from Swiss socket bayonets. The No 4 bayonet was accepted into service alongside the No 4 rifle. This example is complete with its suspension frog.
Long Dress Bayonet-Distributor marked This bayonet has lost some of the finish to the pommel, backstrap and cross guard but retains a working push button and good chequered grips and retaining rivets. Making this item interesting is the so far unidentified distributors marking of a right facing helmet to the Ricasso. Plated blade with evidence of sharpening but no nicks to the cutting edge. No damage to scabbard which retains much of its black painted finish. An interesting variation.

Seysen Bamburg" Crossguard, backstrap and pommel are in good condition with some minor loss of finish and age signs. Rifle slot has a green felt filling, pommel push button operates correctly. Chequered grip plates are in fine condition and are held by the offset screw arrangement typical of Pack, whose maker mark may be found on the upper reverse Ricasso.

Scabbard paint is near perfect to the reverse, and missing only in a very small area to the obverse which would be covered by an appropriate frog. An excellent example of a distributor marked bayonet.
Long Dress Bayonet-W.F.P Nice dress bayonet from the less common, as yet unidentified maker or distributor W.F.P. having a logo of a firemans helmet on the upper reverse Ricasso. Minor loss of finish to crossguard backstrap and pommel, which has an operating rifle push button. Undamaged chequered grip plates attached with domed rivets.

Luftwaffe 2nd Model Dagger-No Maker An excellent example of the second pattern dagger, having much hand enhancement to the fittings. Pommel is well defined with no bumps or hits to the circumference and with very prominent swastica. Light orange grip is slightly lighter to the obverse, and is tightly wrapped with springy silver wire. An original Portepee in the correct tie is wrapped about the ferrule. Raised out crossguard eagle is a superb specimen, having highly detailed beak, brow and eye, and with every individual feather visible. These fittings are non magnetic and very heavy, possibly being of early brass construction. Plain, non maker marked plated blade is in excellent condition having only minor age greying which would polish out easily. Pebbled scabbard panels are well defined, as are the scabbard bands. It is interesting to note the swing wear present in the upper band, caused by the scabbard ring, indicating that this piece was worn for a considerable period, no doubt with pride. A terrific example with many interesting features.
Luftwaffe Dagger Blade A postwar piece having a lightly etched maker mark to the ricasso : “Paul Weyersberg Berlin”

LZ 127 Graf Zeppelin Memorabilia Probably the rarest artefact ever offered on this site, being a genuine fully stamped and franked envelope which was carried on the around the world flight of the Graf Zeppelin in 1929. This unique package also includes a later crew members blazer badge from the Third Reich period. The American newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst's media empire paid half the cost of the project to fly Graf Zeppelin around the world,with four staff on the flight; Drummond-Hay, Karl von Wiegand, the Australian explorer Hubert Wilkins, and the cameraman Robert Hartmann. Drummond-Hay became the first woman to circumnavigate the world by air. Hearst stipulated that the flight in August 1929 officially start and finish at Lakehurst USA. Round-the-world tickets were sold for almost $3000 (equivalent to $45,000 in 2020), but most participants had their costs paid for them. The flight's expenses were offset by the carriage of souvenir mail between Lakehurst, Friedrichshafen, Tokyo, and Los Angeles. A US franked letter flown on the whole trip from Lakehurst to Lakehurst required $3.55 (equivalent to $54 in 2020) in postage. Graf Zeppelin set off from Lakehurst on 8 August, heading eastwards.The ship refuelled at Friedrichshafen, then continued across Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union to Tokyo. After five days at a former German airship shed that had been removed from Jüterbog and rebuilt at Kasumigaura Naval Air Station,Graf Zeppelin continued across the Pacific to California. Eckener delayed crossing the coast at San Francisco's Golden Gate so as to come in near sunset for aesthetic effect.The ship landed at Mines Field in Los Angeles, completing the first ever nonstop flight across the Pacific Ocean. The takeoff from Los Angeles was difficult because of high temperatures and an inversion layer. To lighten the ship, six crew were sent on to Lakehurst by aeroplane.The airship suffered minor damage from a tail strike and barely cleared electricity cables at the edge of the field. The Graf Zeppelin arrived back at Lakehurst from the west on the morning of 29 August, three weeks after it had departed to the east. Flying time for the four Lakehurst to Lakehurst legs was 12 days, 12 hours, and 13 minutes; the entire circumnavigation (including stops) took 21 days, 5 hours, and 31 minutes to cover 33,234 km (20,651 mi; 17,945 nmi). It was the fastest circumnavigation of the globe to date. Envelope is stamped and franked and addressed to a paper manufacturer in Germany. (Interesting to note that the owners of this company fled Germany in 1939 to escape the Nazi takeover!) It has some foxing and tearing at the edges but is still in superb condition. The blazer badge is in "Bevo" style and in perfect condition. For the advanced collector here is an opportunity to own what is probably the only envelope of its type left in the world-living history just does not get any better!

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.

Prototype Bundeswehr Luftwaffe Dagger When the German Air Force was re-established after WW11, it was necessary to propose a new uniform for its members, to include a dress dagger for its flying officers. The prototype of this dagger was based on that used during the war, albeit on a slightly larger scale. After a very brief production run, it was decided that the similarities to the Nazi version of the dagger were too great to be considered politically correct in the Cold War climate of the time, consequently the design was dropped and existing examples withdrawn, leaving just a few examples in existence, this being one. Heart shaped pommel has oak leaf and acorn designs running from base to crown. Celluloid covered grip is based on a wooden former and is wrapped with twisted springy wire. Crossguard consists of an open winged eagle looking to its left having high detailing to its breast and wing feathers. It’s talons are outstretched, whilst it’s tail may be seen behind the talons.

Third Reich Army Dagger-Kolping Kolping Daggers are not common and quite sought after due to the quality of fittings used and the detail of finish. This example has no damage to the pommel which has exceptionally well detailed oak leaf depictions. The off white pommel is made from Galalith and is undamaged. Galalith (Erinoid in the United Kingdom) is a synthetic plastic material manufactured by the interaction of casein and formaldehyde. The commercial name is derived from the Ancient Greek words γάλα (gala, \"milk\") and λῐ́θος (lithos, \"stone\"). Popular in the twenties in the manufacture of Jewellery, the material was used my several dagger manufacturers for grips, until replaced by phenolic resin. Highly detailed crossguard has no damage and retains much of its darkening within the background areas. Blade has no damage to the edges or tip, but has a degree of surface staining, most of which could probably be carefully polished out. Blade washer remains within the confines of the crossguard. The Kolping “beer stein” logo features prominently to the rear ricasso. No damage to the heavily plated scabbard which has excellent stippling to the panels. Scabbard rings are securely attached and well detailed. A quality dagger which could be greatly improved with a little work.

The small Emil Voos name and mark of a snake around a tree trunk are stamped horizontally along the upper ricasso and almost hidden behind the reverse crossguard.

Bands and rings are firmly attached with mild swing wear.

Much of the finish on the crossguard has been lost to time, however the fine detailing to the eagles breast and wing feathering remains. A leather blade washer is in place in the crossguard recess. Mirror plated blade is in good condition having a few age marks along its length and a needle sharp tip. Scabbard has good pebbling to the panels and a centrally placed throat screw to the upper reverse. Lower scabbard band is loose but could easily be fixed. Ideal for the collector on a budget.
Third Reich Army Officers Dagger -Alcoso This piece has a lot going for it including “high lift” Alcoso crossguard and the rare cream coloured “Galalith” grip. (This grip material is often misnamed as “Goliath” ) Galalith is universally known as milkstone (or Erinoid in the United Kingdom) and is a synthetic plastic material manufactured by the interaction of casein and formaldehyde. The commercial name is derived from the Ancient Greek words γάλα (gala, "milk") and λῐ́θος (lithos, "stone"). It is odourless, insoluble in water, biodegradable, non-allergenic, antistatic and virtually nonflammable. Galalith was marketed in boards, pipes and rods. In 1913, thirty million litres (eight million US gallons) of milk were used to produce Galalith in Germany alone. Undamaged pommel with good definition to the oak leaves. As discussed the well defined crossguard is the sought after Alcoso “high lift” version having well detailed eagle and swastica depiction. Bright blade with needle sharp tip has no damage and would clean to a full mint state. The Alcoso maker mark is stamped horizontally on the reverse ricasso while the leather blade washer remains beneath the crossguard. Scabbard has precise stippling to the panels and high detail to the oak leaf depiction on the bands. Sides of the scabbard have some loss of finish and minor corrosion. Highly collectible example of a rare dagger type.
Third Reich Army Officers Dagger Hanging Straps Yet another perhaps unique variation of Army dagger straps, this set having no less than five adjustment holes in each strap. Good condition but much wear to the green felt backings.

Third Reich Army Officers Dagger-Eickhorn A standard 35-41 Army dagger from the prestigious manufacturer Eickhorn, but having one of the best detailed crossguard eagles it would be possible to find: no wear, all the the black background toning intact and superb detailing to the wing and breast feathering, even the stippled background to the swastica is clearly visible. Pommel and grip in fine condition, the grip being a slightly darker orange tone to the reverse. Rear of the crossguard has poorly applied, scratched initials, these being “EHK”. A leather blade washer remains within the recesses of the crossguard, and this has no doubt led to the near perfect condition of the blade which has full crossgrain, a needle like tip and the Eickhorn mark on the obverse ricasso. Scabbard has some minor areas of plate loss to the obverse but good detailing to the stippled panels and the suspension bands. A single pan headed screw retains the throat in the upper reverse scabbard area.
Third Reich Army Officers Dagger-Eickhorn Super dagger with the benefit of a personalisation on the reverse crossguard, being what appears to be “Dr Körving” in professional script. Excellent definition to the 12 leaf pommel having no hits or other damage to the periphery. Burnt orange grip in perfect condition and ferrule with prominent oak leaf decoration. No loss of bright finish to crossguard eagle which still displays a pebbled background to the swastica and highly defined oak leaf wreath.

Eickhorn 35-41 trademark to the upper reverse ricasso. Extra cost, silvered scabbard in superb condition having no dents or other damage and with a single throat screw to the upper reverse. Scabbard bands and rings in excellent condition and securely fixed. Fine example of a personalised Army dagger from the best of makers.
Third Reich Army Officers Dagger-Höller A sleepy Army dagger having a distributor mark on the blade and an off white grip. All the fittings on this piece retain the background darkening originally applied by the maker, and have no wear to the highlights of the crossguard eagle, ferrule or pommel. Undamaged blade has some age beneath the surface which could clean up some should the new owner require it. The Höller maker mark is on the reverse ricasso and has superb definition, all the graduations on the thermometer being clearly visible. The obverse blade is stamped with the distributor mark, being J. G. MERZ. (The J being mis-struck.) Scabbard has good definition to the stippling in the panels, having one small dent to the lower area. Well defined scabbard bands and rings, a single throat screw being present in the upper reverse.
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!
Third Reich Army Officers Dagger-Pack Off-white coloured grip appears to be imitation ivory and is in excellent condition. Good definition to pommel which has a minor hit to the periphery. Crossguard which appears to be of aluminium has lost a little definition due to period rubbing and retains the original leather blade washer. Bright blade is in near mint condition having the large Pack “Siegfried Waffen” trademark to the reverse ricasso. Scabbard has finely pebbled surfaces with one small area of loss of finish to the reverse. The throat retaining screw is in place in the obverse upper area, normally hidden by the crossguard eagle. Scabbard bands are finely detailed, the lower band being loose on the body. Overall an excellent example of a Pack Army with the desirable large trademark.

Third Reich Army Officers Dagger-Retailer Marked Eickhorn Pommel, ferrule and crossguard are in mint condition having all the artificial ageing in the background. Crossguard eagle with outstretched wings is particularly striking having remarkable detail to the breast and wing feathering, and to the swastica clutched in the birds talons.

Blade is also heavily plated and in fine condition having only two small areas of loss. The “prancing lion” Spitzer motto is stamped heavily to the ricasso. Scabbard is an anodised type having near perfect finish. Fine example from a first class manufacturer.
Third Reich Dress Bayonet-WKC These so called pioneer bayonets, produced without the finger guard found on regular dress bayonets are far from common on the collector market.

Third Reich K98 Bayonet-Coppel By its very nature, finding the K98 bayonet in anything better than “average” condition is a challenge, so to find one in near mint condition with matching frog and regimental Troddel is virtually impossible. However, here we have an example of that very illusive beast! Pommel, backstrap and crossguard retain all their “blued” finish, with no sign of period misuse. Pommel has been “waffenampt” and has an operating release push button. The rifle slot retains a white felt infil. Grips are securely attached with perfect, unturned retaining bolts and nuts, the grips themselves still retain the factory shine and are quite beautiful. Blade is perfect and still retains its factory edge, being stamped “44fnj” (Alexander Coppel) to the reverse and “4958” to the obverse. This number is also stamped to the obverse scabbard throat. Scabbard is totally straight without dents or any damage whatsoever and retains all its originally “anodised” finish. The ball is also waffenampt. Black leather frog is of four rivet construction and has perfect off white stitching. Wrapped about the frog is a mint Troddel having white cloth strapping, white slide, blue stem, white crown and acorn. The base of the acorn is filled with a portion of the white strap material. Yes, it’s expensive, but where will you find another???

Third Reich Kreigsmarine Officers Dagger-Eickhorn Late war daggers such as this one have led to the myth of the Naval Administration Dagger-loss of plating have left a silvery finish to the scabbard and other highlights of the crossguard and pommel. Typical late war pommel has less definition than earlier produced pieces, however crossguard still has well detailed fouled anchor and leaf depictions. Off-white grip has twisted silver wire binding which is still taught and securely fixed. A period 42cm portepee, in excellent condition, is in the correct tie about the crossguard. Plain blade has some age to the finish but no damage to the edges. The Eickhorn late war “over the shoulder squirrel “ logo is in place on the upper reverse ricasso beneath the blade washer. Scabbard is in pristine condition other than the loss of guilding which has left a pleasing two tone finish. Twin throat screws are in place in the upper scabbard sides. Scabbard bands and serrated eyelets are the cast-in type and in fine condition.
Third Reich Kreigsmarine Officers Dress Belt Well worn belt that has certainly “been there” but is totally period. Well detailed buckle being stamped “95” to the reverse.

Third Reich Kriegsmarine Dagger-Eickhorn A standard late war production Eickhorn product made unusual by the blade which appears to have remnants of guilding within the etch. 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-Eickhorn A superb example of this dagger type having the Eickhorn 35-41 trademark to the upper reverse ricasso. Eagle pommel has superb detailing to the breast feathers, and with particularly well defined feathers to the reverse. The cross guard has outstanding detail to the acanthus leaves on the quillon arms, the fouled anchor center blocks and the button ends with nipples in the center. The off-white grip remains in perfect condition having a base of carved wood. The grip is wrapped with tight twisted brass wire, and completed with a gold coloured Portepee in the correct tie. The blade is in near mint condition having a superb fouled anchor etch with excellent frosting behind, making the etch really stand out. The scabbard is straight throughout, having one difficult to see minor dent between the carrying bands. It features palmettes over and under the carrying bands and at the bottom are deeply stamped lightning bolts, ermine feet and acanthus leaves. The bands feature fine oak leaves with acorns and the eyelets are the triple serrated type. The throat is retained by two dome head screws. This entire dagger appears to have 100 percent fire guilding, however on closer inspection the unit has been polished back to reveal the brass construction, and this has been polished bright. A fantastic looking piece!
Third Reich Kriegsmarine Dagger-Höller Navy daggers with the hammered scabbard option are difficult to find, particularly in this condition. Much of the gilt finish remains to the dagger overall which exhibits a very attractive mix of guild and polished brass. Very detailed eagle head and breast feathering to the pommel eagle which is frozen in place on the tang. Off white grip is in perfect condition and has tight, twisted, brass wire wrap which is securely fixed at both ends. The crossguard reflects the standard fouled anchor patterns on both sides of the center area and has good acanthus leaves on both sides of the crossguards. The guards end in button ends having long nipples in the centre. Push button operates perfectly to release the blade from the scabbard. This blade is the sought after “sailing ship” option, apparently the norm for höller daggers, and is totally mint, having no nicks or other damage, nor any signs of age whatsoever. The Höller trademark is crisp and clear on the ricasso. A thin leather washer is present beneath the crossguard. Hammered scabbard has one small “railway carriage” dent to the lower chape area but is otherwise in superb condition with much guilding present. A pair of domed headed screws retain the throat. A superb example of a hammered scabbard, sailing ship blade dagger.
Third Reich Kriegsmarine Dagger-Hörster Open winged eagle pommel has excellent definition to the breast feathering and to the talons holding the wreathed mobile swastica. Cream coloured grip has no cracking or chips, and is tightly wound with twin strands of twisted brass wire. Good detailing to the capstan quillions on the crossguard which has the normal fouled anchor motif to the centre panels. Needle sharp blade is in perfect condition having no damage to the edges or to the less common sailing ship etch. A red felt washer remains in place beneath the crossguard. Brass based scabbard has typical lightning bolt decoration with no dents or other damage. Excellent detail to the cast-in scabbard bands and rings.
Third Reich Kriegsmarine Dagger-Hörster Well detailed pommel and crossguard which has an operating push button. Solid grip tightly wrapped with twisted brass wire. Bright blade with excellent fouled anchor etch has the Hörster mark to the upper ricasso. Hammered scabbard with remarkable embellishment which has become known as the "owl" variation due to the birds-head like decoration to the bottom chape area. Engraving even extends to the scabbard rings. Priced as a reproduction.
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 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.
Third Reich Pioneer Long Dress Bayonet-Tiger Excellent complete "pioneer" dress bayonet rig having the benefit of a maker marked frog and a most unusual maker/depot marked Luftwaffe trodell. Most of the bright finish remains to the short "pioneer" style crossguard, backstrap and pommel, which has an operating push button. Chequered grips are retained by domed rivets, reverse grip has a small chip to the upper quadrant. Bright blade has one minor nick to the edge and has the "prowling tiger" logo to the obverse ricasso, with the makers name and location prominent to the reverse ricasso. Black painted scabbard is in excellent condition with only one minuscule paint chip to the obverse. Black "Cavalry" style leather frog is of four rivet construction having a leather grip strap in the upper section. The makers/distributors name and location are stamped to the reverse, being "Overhoff & Cie Ludenschied 1940" . Wrapped about the frog is a Lufrwaffe knot having a grey leather strap with date and Flak regiment stamping to the reverse.
Third Reich Police Bayonet Plating to the non maker marked blade is in excellent condition, having only minor signs of age and one small nic to the leading edge. Most of the finish to the brass based eagle head pommel, backstrap and crossguard has gone to time. Stag grips in good condition with domed rivets and a correctly attached police emblem. Black leather scabbard in good condition with one small crease line to the obverse. The number “7” appears on the top scabbard mount, this number being repeated on the crossguard. Black leather frog in excellent condition with no damage to the lug hole and no loss of finish or stitching. Good piece for the budget conscious.
Third Reich Police Bayonet Frog Sometimes seen with hunting cutlasses, these specific frogs were designed to accompany the Municipal and Rural police bayonet. Adjustable by means of a fixed bobbin and of some ten inches in length, this example is in excellent condition having only some minor loss of covering to the brass scabbard hook and complete with the often missing cross strap Fine example.
Third Reich Police Bayonet-Eickhorn This bayonet is of the smaller proportion type and has a hilt made completely from alluminium. The detailing to the pommel and to the crossguard is excellent, having overlapping feathering to the eagle head and overlapping oak leaves to the quillion. The grip plates are very fine antler. They have deep, rich brown tones and good "grain". Attached to the obverse plate is an open aluminum Police insignia, which retains fine detailing throughout. Bright blade has minor loss of plating but has no damage and a needle sharp tip. To the upper reverse ricasso is the '35--'41 Eickhorn makers mark. A thick leather blade washer remains beneath the crossguard. Leather scabbard has twin decorative lines to the obverse with a seam to the reverse. This scabbard is still sound but has a crease approximately half way along its length. Upper and lower scabbard fittings retain all their silver finish and are still solidly attached with rivets. An obstruction in the scabbard prevents the blade being pushed fully home, leaving at most 2mm protruding. Difficult to find variation by the best of the period manufacturers.
Third Reich Police Bayonet-Weyersburg This maker is not commonly seen on police bayonets and represents an early conversion from the Weimar period sidearm. Eagles head pommel has fine overlapping feather decoration and "eye" and demonstrates the usually seen minor indentations to the spine area indicating use as an improvised hammer. Crossguard is finely detailed having oak leaves and the number "19" to the reverse. Grip plates are fine stag, having domed rivets. Unfortunately the police grip insignia has gone to time, but would be simple to replace once a suitable replacement has been sourced. Period cut down blade is in fine condition having the early Paul Weyersburg makers stamp to the reverse ricasso. Black leather scabbard has the usual twin line decoration to the obverse with a reverse seam. There are a couple of random holes to the scabbard leather suggesting that the missing grip eagle could once have been placed on the scabbard ??? Upper and lower fittings are in fine shape and would benefit from some gentle cleaning as would the scabbard leather. Brown leather frog is the four rivet version having sound leather and stitching and would benefit from some leather polish. Overall a good example from a less frequently seen manufacturer.
Third Reich Police Officers Sword Portepee In near mint condition, this portepee consists of a flat strap, interwoven free slide, metal alloy based stem, crown and ball. The portepee is wood based and wrapped in silver/aluminum wire threads. The slide and strap are black, red and silver. The bottom has a recessed hole that shows a red, white and black "cats annus" pattern. Probably the best available at this price.
Third Reich Police Officers Sword Portepee Overall mint condition having strap and slide with interwoven silver and red stripes, silver crochet style stem through the metal former may be seen and tightly wrapped silver crown and acorn. The acorn base is filled with silver red and black twisted wire. Perfect addition to a near mint or better sword.
Third Reich Police Uniform Patch This oval patch is of two piece construction, being material to the front and felt to the rear. An open wing eagle clutching a swastika surrounded by an oak leaf wreath adornes the obverse. Eagle is pink with grey highlighting. This cloth badge was part of a large collection of assorted militaria purchased some years ago. All the daggers in this collection proved to be of the period, and we have no reason to assume these badges are any different, however we have no expertise in this field and would be grateful for any information received.
Third reich Political Leaders Cap Cockade This political leaders cap cockade has a red lined enamel circular outside with an inner metal rim featuring a floating black enamel swastika in the center. The two prongs are in place on the reverse of this cockade. The reverse is a silvered color and it is marked, RZM M 1/34. Superb enamelling to obverse, age tarnishing to the rear. A super example.
Third Reich Portepee This one is correct for Luftwaffe and Teno Officer daggers, and has “been there” having a complete but but very worn strap but a perfect acorn having tight stitching and an unusual black insert to the acorn base.
Third Reich Portepee For The Forestry Dagger Textured alluminium strapping with pair of green stripes running the length. The slide is green and bullion braid and the stem is a bullion over metal. The oval bullion ball has a "cat's anus" stuffing of green thread. A fine, original portepee here, ready to complete your cutlass, having a very small area of wear to the strapping caused by prolonged attachment to a sidearm.

Third Reich Pottery from Berghof This glazed porcelain tile was excavated at the site of Hitlers Berghof near Berchtesgarden in Southern Bavaria. The makers mark of "H & Co Selb" is positioned beneath a political eagle and dated 1938. Franz Heinrich started his porcelain painting business in Bavaria in 1896. He constructed a mufffle kiln in his parent's house. Initially just one female worker was helping him. Five years later in 1901 he started producing his own whiteware. Porzellanfabrik Heinrich located in the city of Selb became one of the largest porcelain producers in Germany. Franz Heinrich died in 1928. In 1929 Heinrich & Co took over another Selb factory, Gräf & Krippner. In the 1930s there were 500 employees in the Heinrich factory. In 1945 the company resumed production, and in the 1970s employment rose to 800. In 1976 Heinrich Porzellan GmbH became a part of Villeroy & Boch. A unique opportunity to own a part of Hitlers home!

Third Reich Prussian Sword Portepee Leather strapping with triple silver bullion lines. "Crochet" style golden stem over a silver base. Gold bullion crown and and flattened acorn. Twisted green stuffing to the ball may indicate an association with the Forestry organisations. In excellent condition with wear only commensurate with age.
Third Reich RAD Badge A cap badge worn by female members of the Reichsarbeitsdienst. Period pin correctly attached to the reverse.
Third Reich RAD Belt Buckle Early, pebbled aluminium version in excellent condition with the “Asmann “ logo and the date 1936 to the reverse. Superb detail to the RAD spade emblem and the wheatsheaf decoration.
Third Reich RAD Leader Dagger Straps These Asmann marked brown leather hangers are in excellent condition, having sound leather and perfect stitching. There is some minor age cracking to the surface finish but this does not detract from the desirability of these rare hangers. Pebbled buckles and slides are perfect whilst the correctly operating lower push-in clips have lost their finish. Never commonplace, RAD hangers in this condition are now almost impossible to locate.
Third Reich RAD Leaders Dagger Hangers A slightly unconventional set of hangers for the officers dagger, having deluxe Luftwaffe spring clips in place of those normally seen. There is no evidence of post war replacement or tampering, so we must assume that this anomaly occurred during the period, perhaps due to personal preference of the owner, or lack of the normal clips at the manufacturer. Whatever the explanation, this set are clearly period made and in excellent condition, even having remnants of the felt backing material to the reverse. Accompanying this set is a purpose made leather belt loop which matches the leather strap’s perfectly, and demonstrates just the right amount of wear to show these have been together forever. Perfect set for the collector who appreciates the period, but unconventional nature of these accessories.
Third Reich RAD Officer Dagger Hangers-Asmann As with almost all Third Reich sidearms, the hangers for the weapon are more difficult to acquire than the dagger itself, and this is certainly true of the RAD officers. Tan leather straps in excellent condition having no rips, tears or abrasions, securely sewn to an Asmann marked upper box clip. Pebbled buckles, slides and push-in lower spring clips are exceptionally well defined and operate perfectly. A super set.
Third Reich RAD Officers Dagger-WKC Introduced in 1938 as an upgrade for officers who originally wore the heavier, stag gripped Hewer, this WKC example is in excellent condition having most of the finish remaining to the eagle head pommel, ferrule and crossguard. The base metal of these pieces is notorious for not retaining its silvered finish so finding an example so complete is quite unusual. A single countersunk bolt retains the ivory coloured grips which are in perfect undamaged condition. It’s likely that removing these grips would reveal an assembly number stamped into the blade tang, and a corresponding number written in pencil on the grip itself. Sometimes the assemblers initials can also be seen. An exciting exploration we will leave for the next owner should he feel so inclined! The bolo shaped blade has no damage a perfect tip and much crossgrain, and apart from some minor marks from where the runners have gripped the blade, is in near mint condition. As is the norm with these pieces there is no blade washer. The “work ennobles” motto is darkly etched into the obverse blade whilst the WKC knights head logo appears on the reverse ricasso. Scabbard is undamaged and has most of its silvered finish remaining, with a portion of the bluing on the centre panel on both obverse and reverse. Some original lacquer remains predominantly to the the lower chape area. Overall an excellent example of a dagger type which is becoming very difficult to acquire in any condition.
Third Reich RAD “Bullet” Hanger Black leather hanger having belt loop attached. Metal spring clip is marked “ges. gesch” and “OLC” to the rear. Bullet section marked with the year 1939 and a makers name to the reverse. Excellent condition with no damage and minimal wear to the leather.

Third Reich SA Belt Loop Single piece of brown leather having an RZM marked magnetic "D"ring riveted into the lower loop. Some minor loss of surface finish to the leather. Ring is marked "M5/71"
Third Reich SA Belt Loop/Extension Piece This dark brown/black leather "Double D" loop would have been used on the belt as an attachment to the cross strap combined with a dagger suspension loop, or could have been used to extend the reach of a suspension device. Excellent leather with stitched-in steel loops, riveted for extra support at the lower end. Maker marked to the reverse.
Third Reich SA Brown Leather Belt Loop/ Hanger A rare hanger composing an elliptical double ended loop which could have been worn on the belt offering a connection for the cross strap combined with a lower "D" ring for a dagger or other accessory. Leather in excellent condition with perfect stitching. Attached to the lower ring is a leather fold over teardrop style hanger secured with a metal stud. All metalwork is magnetic.

In good overall condition, the leather to the single piece hanger is a little worn with some loss to the finish.
Third Reich SA Dagger-Becker Excellent “from the woodwork” SA having the desirable “chef with knife and fork” maker mark of Gebruder Becker to the reverse ricasso. Entire dagger is covered with a yellow/brown patina (nicotine?) and fits together perfectly having no signs of ever being apart. Crossguards in excellent condition, the lower being stamped “No” to the reverse. Grip has some minor chipping to both upper and lower crossguard areas, but perfectly inset rune and eagle. Bright blade is in excellent condition having some minor denting to the edges which can only be felt, not seen. Scabbard has minor signs of age beneath the surface finish but no edge dents. Upper fitting has lost a screw (available elsewhere on this site) and has taken a hit to the lower edge. Lower fitting has both screws and a minor dent to the ball. Nice early SA which has never been in a collection.
Third Reich SA Dagger-CARL ZANDER Rated a 10 on the Mcsarr scale, this item represents the rarest of the known manufacturers of SA dagger producers and is in excellent condition. Solid nickel crossguards are sharply defined having precise accent grooves and a pommel nut which appears unturned. Lower guard is stamped \"Ns\" to the reverse. Superb grip is perfectly fitted and has only the most minor of wearing signs. The SA sigrunne and political eagle are perfectly inset to the obverse face. Bright blade is sharply tipped showing no damage to the edges. Minor signs of previous water damage to the obverse blade and obverse ricasso. Reverse ricasso is heavily stamped with the maker mark of \"Karl Zander Solingen\" in a double circle with the \"Kwick\" logo stamped across it. Early anodised scabbard is in excellent condition with elements of factory lacquer remaining. Upper scabbard fitting is missing one side screw, lower fitting has a minor dent to the ball. A possibly unique opportunity to acquire a very rare maker SA dagger in first rate condition.
Third Reich SA Dagger-Ground Röhm Nice early dagger has solid upper and lower crossguards having fine edges and crisp, deep accent grooves. Lower guard is stamped "Sw" to the reverse. Dark brown fruitwood grip, which fits the crossguards perfectly, has correctly inset SA rune and political eagle to the obverse face, while the reverse of the grip has a vertical crack emanating from the centre of the upper crossguard. Full length blade has one small Nick to the upper edge but remains otherwise bright with crisp motto to the obverse. Reverse of the blade has been factory repolished eliminating all traces of the offending Röhm dedication. A minuscule portion of the makers mark remains which appears to be of the F Dick" concern. Brown anodised scabbard has most finish remaining with evidence of surface rust. Scabbard fittings are in excellent condition having all screws in place and apparently unturned. Lower fitting has a perfect, undented ball. Overall a fine example of a factory, fully ground Röhm presentation dagger.
Third Reich SA Dagger-Ground Röhm Aesculap This early example comes from one of the few makers of SA daggers not based in Solingen, and is a recognised supplier of Röhm presentation pieces. It has excellent crossguards having deep accent grooves with one minor age spot on the reverse of the lower guard adjacent to the "Sw" gau mark. Grip is damage free having correctly inset SA rune and political style eagle. Bright blade retains much crossgraining to the obverse, whilst the reverse has been expertly ground to remove the offending Röhm dedication, leaving only a small part of the "Aesculap Tuttlingen" makers logo. Anodised scabbard retains the majority of its finish with only minor age signs throughout. Scabbard fittings retain all fixing screws which appear unturned. Lower ball is slightly misshapen. Excellent historic example of an early dagger having remnants of the "Röhm Purge"
Third Reich SA Dagger-Gustav Weyersberg A show “walk in” that has never been in a collection. This dagger has never been apart and demonstrates a delightful matching patina over all the fittings. Upper and lower nickel crossguards have no damage, the lower having the gau mark “Ns”. Fruitwood grip in excellent condition and a “glove like” fit to both crossguards. SA rune button and crossguard eagle perfectly inset, the eagle having prominent detailing to wings and chest feathering. Dagger to scabbard fit is exceptional, there being no rocking or other movement when inserted. Blade has some greying and evidence of watermark, but no damage and a strong motto to the obverse. The reverse ricasso has the unusual Gustav Weyersberg maker mark which is considered quite rare. Anodised scabbard has three small dents to the obverse but is in overall excellent condition. All screws are present to the fittings. An excellent dagger from an unusual manufacturer which exhibits all the traits we like to see in an early, unmessed with piece.
Third Reich SA Dagger-Transitional Eickhorn It is a fact that the prestigious firm of Carl Eickhorn manufactured the best of edged weapons during the early days of the Reich, and that this quality continued through the latter stages despite the obvious shortages of both manpower and materials. The dagger featured here is a product of that crossover period between early and late, the "transitional time" when the party infiltrated all areas of life, particularly the manufacturing industries, and began to standardise and control through the auspices of the "Reichszeugmeisterei"-the RZM whose inspection mark appears on the ricasso of this fine piece. Loathe to loose their corporate identity, Eickhorn chose to retain their own trademark in parallel with that of the RZM until this practice became forbidden. The result here is a dagger which retains all the quality of the early production runs having fine nickel cross guards with deep accent grooves and a beautifully fitted, vertically grained fruitwood grip with perfectly inset eagle and SA rune. The lower crossguard has the letter "S" stamped into the reverse. Bright blade has some minor aging with a deep, dark motto to the obverse, and the RZM mark and 1938 date to the obverse. The 35-41 Eickhorn mark sits proudly between this mark and the crossguard. Scabbard has no dents and may be a period repaint over early anodising. Top and bottom mounts are in fine condition with all screws present. Attached to the carrying ring is a fine three piece hanger. All leather in excellent condition and with an RZM and "OLC" marked clip. The grip retaining strap is complete with its short leather retaining loop, whilst the belt loop has a sewn in magnetic "D" ring. Rare opportunity to obtain a transitional dagger from the best maker, complete with a three piece "marching" hanger.
Third Reich SA Dagger-WKC An excellent example of a later produced SA service dagger by WKC, identified by the RZM number M7/42 to the obverse ricasso. Plated crossguards are in fine condition with only the most minimal of loss adjacent to the grip and to the pommel nut. Aluminium eagle is correctly set into the obverse grip as is the SA rune button. Bright blade is near mint, has all the background darkening in the motto, no nicks to the cutting edges and retains virtually all the factory crossgraining. Scabbard paint is in perfect condition having age lines beneath the surface emphasising its originality. Upper and lower scabbard fittings are in fine condition having an undented ball and all screws present. Completing this dagger is a three piece "marching" hanger having excellent leather and an RZM and "OLC" marked clip. The grip strap is complete with an operating push button and the short leather retainer. Excellent example of a later produced dagger from a prestigious manufacturer
Third Reich SA Marine Belt Loop This remarkable hanger is constructed of very dark brown leather which has a gilded and pebbled alluminium "D" ring riveted into the lower loop. The leather has feint decorative lines which run parallel to the outer edges, and is in sound, worn condition. The rivet is slightly rusty no doubt from use in a damp environment. A rare accoutrement

If you are lucky enough to possess an SA attributed sword, this item is unmissable.

WW 1 Miniature Bayonet A really beautifully made miniature commemorative from the first war, being a letter opener in the form of a bayonet. This interesting item is engraved with " 1914 Souvenir 1917" on the single edged, fullered blade. These blades were made in Belgium after WWI for sale to tourists visiting the battlefields, Since the economy of the country had been destroyed by war local craftsman resorted to whatever means available to earn a living. Miniature bayonets have spawned an entire area of collecting interest. Seeming to be of one piece construction with separately applied wooden grips, having a blunt tip to the blade, and showing little at wear.

Ww1 Antwerp Vintage Lapel Pin Bayonet. Commemorating "Antwerpen" and marked as such on the obverse blade. One piece construction having what may be a mother of pearl grip on the obverse. Flat reverse has attachment pin and catch which operate correctly. Stamped makers mark. Approximately 1 and 1/2 inches in length. A fascinating collectable at a sensible price.
WW1 Binoculars Dated 1916, these binoculars are stamped with a "crows feet" mark to the front and with a French makers name to the rear. Central focus ring requires some attention but optics clear. Leather case is marked with a makers name being "Wolfsky & Co. London" and "Case No3 Prismatic Binoculars" . Neck strap on the binoculars in fine condition, strap to the case snapped.
WW1 British Artillery Clinometer A 1917 dated artillery/gunnery Clinometer by Taylor, Taylor & Hobson Ltd. In good operating condition with fully intact spirit level.
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.
WW1 British Wire Cutters Fine set of cutters marked with the MOD broad arrow mark. Wire cutters were typically stored for easy acess by the soldier on a utility belt. Barbed wire posed a significant obstacle to attacking troops: it slowed or prevented progress across the battle field and made soldiers easy targets while they were tangled or being cut free.
WW1 Cavalry Sketching Board Cavalry Sketching Boards were designed to be strapped to the arm of a cavalryman on the bridle arm. The board was attached to the arm by a leather strap with a swivel joint. This enabled the user to twist the whole board on their arm to align the compass accurately. The board incorporated a compass for taking bearings, and the sketch was made on a paper roll which was wound around one of the side rollers. As a sketch was completed, the paper roll was advanced to supply more paper. During WW1 the sketching board was often used by pilots and observers of the Royal Flying Corps to make sketches of enemy positions. The edge of this example has the makers name of Aston and Manders of Soho London. The integral compass appears to work correctly, whilst the leather strap and swivel are in excellent condition. The lack of the broad arrow MOD mark would indicate this to be a private purchase item, the initials "J.G" scratched on the back seeming to confirm this.
WW1 Christmas Gift Box The Princess Mary Gift Fund box is an embossed brass box that originally contained a variety of items such as tobacco and chocolate. It was intended as a Christmas present to those serving at Christmas in 1914 and was paid for by a public fund backed by Princess Mary. In good condition with some minor dents.

WW1 Iron Cross First Class Stickpin A really good quality example of this stickpin in excellent condition. Being slightly larger than the majority of these pins, yet still only 1/2 inch across the arms of the swastica, the detailing of the perfect enameling is superb. Knurled attachment pin secured via soldered circular pad to the unmarked reverse. In essentially unworn condition

WW2 ARP Helmet with Lamp Air raid police personnel helmets are not uncommon, however the clip-on lamp which accompanies it is a rare survivor indeed. The helmet is complete with a 1939 dated liner with chin strap in good condition. The lamp is unissued and contained with its original cardboard packing box. Bulb is present but untested, paintwork to hardware is pristine.
WW2 British Fire Axe The Auxiliary Fire Service (AFS) was first formed in 1938 in Great Britain as part of the Civil Defence Service. Its role was to supplement the work of brigades at local level. In this job it was hampered severely by the incompatibility of equipment used by these different brigades most importantly the lack of a standard size of hydrant valve! Despite its size and weight, this large utility axe was considered an item of portable equipment, contained within its protective leather case which could be attached to a waist belt via loops on the reverse. This example bears the stamping of the Auxilliary Fire Service and the number 20099. An excellent example showing only mild wear commensurate with age and use.
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. The external tube would have allowed the introduction of oxygen? to increase the temperature of the burn. A superb example of "Tommy" ingenuity in the field.
Ww2 German Battalion Marked Schnapps Cup A most unusual piece being marked to a corps rather than an individual, and would presumably have been used in an officers mess, forming part of the silverware for the battalion. Markings are "Uffz.-Korps Fla.Rak. Btl.22" To the base is a makers mark of the letters WMF within a stylised square. A fascinating piece of history worthy of further research.
Ww2 German Belt equipment loops These loops are not quite identical but both feature stitched leather and metal retaining rivets. The metal loops appear to be alluminium. One loop has a stamping into the leather which appears to be a makers mark. Price is for the pair.
Ww2 German 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.
WW2 German Puttees Complete in the original transport pack, these uniform Puttees appear to be factory wrapped and never worn. Ink stamped "H.M" to the ends and dated 1933 with a Wehrmacht eagle.
WW2 Kriegsmarine Divers Knife An excellent period example of what has become an incredibly rare knife. Having waffenampt stamps to both blade and body to confirm its use during the third reach period, the overall condition is quite exceptional. Brass grip retains its rubber sealing ring and black finish between the turned rings. Blade is not maker marked but is likely to me a Henckels product. Minor signs of age and use to the bright blade but no damage to the cutting edge. Tubular brass scabbard has minor signs of use as a hammer to the base but otherwise is in perfect used condition. Both screw threads on knife and scabbard are in perfect condition allowing the knife to fit to the scabbard correctly. A very difficult example to find, missing from most collections.
WW2 Mortar Clinometer Dated 1941 this instrument was used to measure the elevation of the barrels of artillery weapons, specifically in this case the Mortar. Superbly made and stamped with the crows foot MOD mark and the makers name.
WW2 Purple Heart Award This is a WW2 issue award in its original padded presentation case. The lid of the case has become detached but is still held in place by its inner lining. The heart itself is in perfect unworn condition and complete with all its accoutrements. Rare to find an original period award for sale.
Ww2 Shooting Award-WMF A most attractive and very large metal award on a beautiful woven suspension hanger. Some 16cms in diameter the repose award appears to be stamped from a very malleable metal sheet and has a variety of hunting themes to the circumference to include shotguns, cutlasses, daggers, hunting horns etc. with a central depiction of the Auerhahn ( or capercaillie) perched on a branch, calling, with tail spread. The suspension hanger is 12 cms in length and terminates in a wall hanger similarly decorated. A very attractive item perfect for display with a collection of Hirschfängers.
WW2 Sighting Telescope Listed as being for use on 17 pdr anti tank guns, this telescope is in its original transport cardboard box and is dated 1943. The Ordnance Quick-Firing 17-pounder (or just 17-pdr) was a 76.2 mm (3 inch) gun developed by the United Kingdom during World War II. It was used as an anti-tank gun on its own carriage, as well as equipping a number of British tanks. Used with the APDS shot, it was capable of defeating all but the thickest armour on German tanks. It was used to 'up-gun' some foreign-built vehicles in British service, notably to produce the Sherman Firefly variant of the US M4 Sherman tank, giving British tank units the ability to hold their own against their German counterparts. In the anti-tank role, it was replaced after the war by the 120 mm BAT recoilless rifle. As a tank gun, it was succeeded by the 84 mm 20 pounder.
WW2 Vintage\"Arabis\" Cigarettes A full box of cigarettes from the Kosmos firm who were established in Dresden during World War Two . Each cigarette has a knight on rearing horse logo, whilst the box itself has a quite intricate Arabic style picture to the lid. Box in surprisingly good condition for its age, lid with some splitting of the edges, base all complete. Contents showing signs of age.
Yugoslav Bayonet Frog Single piece of brown leather folded and sewn to form a belt loop in the upper section. Single rivet used to retain a leather grip strap. No damage to shoe or lug hole.

\"Over-The-Shoulder\" Adjustable Sword Hanger Figure of eight style leather hanger suspended from a tan coloured fabric strap. Hanger has a Spring clip sewn and riveted in. Hardware in excellent condition, some minor age and wear to the strap.
\"Service Times\" Labels These rare labels were used on a number of wartime "souvenir" items such as flasks, walking sticks etc and sold to raise party funds. These five circular labels are approximately .75 inches in diameter having coloured depictions of field pieces, biplanes etc. surrounded by the "Zur Erinnerung An Meine Dienstzeit" service time remembrance. Perfect condition with storage age only.
\"Stag\" Gripped Parade Bayonet This interesting bayonet appears to have imitation, probably wooden, grip plates, secured by rivets, one of which is very slightly loose. Pommel backstrap and crossguard retain most of their finish, pommel showing some signs of use a hammer. Blade washer remains beneath the crossguard protecting the short, plain, single fullered blade which retains most of its finish. There is no evidence of a maker mark to this blade. Black painted scabbard retains most of its finish and is undented. Scabbard lug is very slightly loose on the scabbard.

\"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.
