A MOST UNUSUAL PROBABLY UNIQUE GERMAN HUNTING DAGGER. This is a really impressive and attractive dagger which was possibly a special order as in over 40 years collecting and dealing in German daggers and militaria i have never seen this pattern before.Impressive stag horn grip plates are formed at the hilt to represent a birds head the upper grip rivet acting as the eye, the tip of the grip is formed to represent a birds beak which is reminiscent of the RAD dagger hilt.The silver metal grip ferrule is decorated with a number of deeply engraved lines, the silver metal crossguard is most unusual as it is flat and oval in design, i have never seen a crossguard on a hunting dagger like this before, it is simple but still very attractive. The impressive steel blade measures just under 12 inches in length and it is in excellent condition, it is plain with out decoration or a makers name and i am sure would be very lethal in defense or for dispatching an injured animal. Black leather scabbard with matching silver scabbard fittings, the upper fitting has two decorative side attachments for attaching a frog and it is also fitted with a skinning knife.The skinning knife is also very attractive and the maker has selected a superb section of staghorn for the handle. The steel blade is in excellent condition and it is marked, Silber Stee. The dagger is complete with its original brown leather hanger with fitted leather belt, the belt is complete and it has not been shortened but it is very short so how it attaches i have no idea.The knife is very reminiscent of the rare and desirable Third Reich Dula hunting knife & this dagger would look superb displayed with one of those and would certainly be a unique set. This hunting knife would be ideal in the field for defense from attacking animals but also for dispatching an injured animal, it is very attractive in design and so it would also be ideal at a formal gatherings of hunters such as at a Hunting contest / parade.

CASED THIRD REICH BURGERMEISTERS MEDAL FOR THE DISTRICT OF HOCHEN. A very rare cased medal awarded to the Mayor of Hochen, this is the 1st example of a Burgermeisters medal I have owned in 35 years as a dealer. These medals were awarded to the town's Burgermeister if the town did not already have a mayors chain of office, the medal was worn around the Mayors neck at council meetings and formal events and was worn suspended by a red silk ribbon. The large silver medal depicts the head of the Fuhrer Adolf Hitler with inscription to the outer edge, Der Fuhrer Und Reichschanzler Adolf Hitler, the revers side of the medal displays a wreath of oakleaves with large swastika and below this, GEMEINDE HOCHEN (the name of the town) and the makers mark FM, which is the makers mark for Fritz Mannheim who was the official maker of this rare award. Complete with red silk suspension ribbon and rare black leatherette box, the interior is lined in blue velvet and inset for the award and ribbon, the lid of the box features the makers trade mark FM which matches the maker mark on the award. The district of Hotchen is a part of the city of Beckbach and is in Saarland. As a direct consequence of WW1 the Saar district of Germany was occupied by England and France from 1920, mainly because its industrial potential and its coal fields, in 1935 the population voted in a land slide election to return to Germany after years of foreign rule, the population of Hochen voted over 97% in favour of re-joining Germany. The Mayor was probably selected by the NSDAP soon after that event and almost certainly from the leading NSDAP leadership of Hochen, the Burgemeisters were often Political leaders or high ranking members of the SA or the other paramilitary organizations. The Burgemeisters often held office for many years so it should be fairly easy to discover who this award belonged to and it would certainly make a fascinating research project. Near Mint.

ENGLISH HALLMARKED SILVER TANKARD PRESENTED TO THE DEVON RIFLE VOLUNTEERS AND DECORATED WITH THREE SOLDIERS. This extremely rare and interesting large size silver tankard measures just under 6 inches in height with an attractive silver handle, the tankard has silver hall marks for London 1745 and at this period it would have been fairly plain in the typical Georgian style, this plain design was not favored by the Victorians and many are now found which have been up-dated with floral designs and other decoration but the example i have to offer is exceptional as it has been embossed with three soldiers of the Devon Rifle Volunteers in full military uniform and holding rifles, in the background are two tents and they are surrounded by trees, two of these trees have been formed with a space for an inscription which reads as follow, 1861 won by Langley Pope John Morgan, 1862 Corpl William Jarvis,1863 Corpl William Jarvis 1864, I imagine as Corporal Jarvis won the cup a number of times he was allowed to keep it. Below the rim of the tankard is the following inscription, CHALLENGE CUP PRESENTED TO THE 26TH DRV BY THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF KINGSBRIDGE. Below this inscription are the original silver hall marks with makers initials, English silver lion, crowned lion head and date letter K which dates the tankard to London 1745 which was the reign of King George the II.

ENGLISH SILVER MILITARY INKWELL BY THE IMPORTANT SILVERSMITH OMAR RAMSDEN. This superb & very large decorative inkwell was designed and produced in the early 20th century by the renowned and highly collectable arts & crafts silversmith, Omar Ramsden.The arts and crafts movement was very popular and influential in England from the 1870s until the late 1930s,the principle of the movement was to encourage the production of unique hand made goods rather than identical machine made factory products. Circular silver Standish in a decorative hammered style with a raised edge with eight raised ridges that probably simulate rivets and which would be ideal for holding pens, the center of the inkwell almost grows naturally into a tall mushroom form, the lid is hinged and when opened features a glass inkwell. The lid of the well is beautifully engraved with large highly detailed Regimental badge, a Ram holding a flag surmounted by the Kings crown and engraved around the outer edge, THE QUEENS 22ND LONDON REGIMENT. The outer raised border of the inkwell between the stylized rivets is engraved, I WAS WROUGHT FOR CAPTAIN K.E.PREVITE BY COMMAND OF THE OFFICERS 22ND REGIMENT (THE QUEENS) ON THE OCCASION OF HIS MARRAGE 30TH JAN 1930.The edge of the ink well is stamped with the silver hallmark OR (Omar Ramsden) and the hall marks for London 1926.From research I have managed to discover one other almost identical inkwell also of the Queens Regiment which was in the Campbell (Omar Ramsden) silver collection, that inkwell was produced in the same year as the one I am offering for sale but it was presented on a different date to a different officer. It is believed that the Regiment purchased a very small quantity of these inkwells (probably no moor than 6 or 8) from Omar Ramsden in the mid 1920s for presentation for officers marriages and perhaps retirements, Ramsden probably retained the inkwells until they were required and then the inscription would have been applied at his workshop. Silver produced by Omar Ramsden is highly sort after and collectable this also has the added interest of being an inkwell with a military connection. [Condition: Mint]

GAULEITER AND SS GENERAL AUGUST EIGRUBER\'S SS SWORD, SWORD AWARD DOCUMENT AND PHOTOGRAH ALBUM. This is a magnificent and historical set of museum quality and importance. The set comprises August Eigrubers SS officers sword (degen). Nickel silver hilt with the SS kulturzeichen stamped on the underside. The silver screw cap is the special SS type that screws into the hilt of the sword and not the tang of the blade which is the correct SS style, the pommel is beautifully engraved with Eigrubers initials, AE. The black wooden grip is in superb condition and it is inlaid with SS runic badge. The blade is plain with out a makers name which is correct for the SS officers swords. The scabbard still retains 98% original black paint, there are a couple of very slight dents to the reverse side but they are very minor and hardly worth mentioning, the upper silver scabbard fitting is stamped on the throat with the SS kulturzeichen and it is also stamped with Eigrubers SS membership number,292778, the lower scabbard fitting is the correct SS style which is held in place with pressure and not with screws. Complete with SS officers sword knot with the SS runes on the stem. SS sword award document, an extremely rare document awarding the SS sword (degen) to SS Oberfuhrer August Eigruber and dated 9.11.1938 and signed in ink by the Reichfuhrer SS Heinrich Himmler, the document has the correct water mark which can been seen when held to the light. The last item in this set is a superb personal photograph album belonging to Gauleiter and SS Obergrupenfuhrer August Eigruber, the album dates to the early 1940\'s and contains almost 150 photographs and all very interesting and some with captions and dates, they include Eigruber giving speeches, parades, visiting tank factory and other industry\'s, meeting the local population, but even more interesting are the photographs of the important people who visited him at Linz, they include, Adolf Hitler 6 unique photographs, Hermann Goring also with 6 unique photographs showing him inspecting the city, Japanese foreign minister, Heinrich Himmler, Conrad Heinlein, various Gauleiters and other high ranking political and military leaders, almost every photograph is of great interest. Gauleiter and SS Obergrupenfuhrer August Eigruber was born on the 16th of April 1907 at Steyr in Austria. He was too young to serve in WW1 and after graduating from school he took up a carrier in precision engineering. In 1922 he joined the local Nazi Youth organisation in Austria and his early political carrier was with the Austrian HJ, in 1928 he joined the NSDAP receiving membership number 83432. He rose steadily in the Austrian NSDAP during this early period holding many party positions. In 1934 he was arrested after the assassination of the Austrian Chancellor Dollfuss and spent some time in prison. In 1935 he was made Gauleiter of Gau Linz in the illegal Austrian NSDAP ( a party position but not an official Austrian government post at that time). After the Austrian Anschluss in 1938 Eiguber was appointed by Adolf Hitler as the official Gauleiter of Gau Oberdonau with headquarters in the city of Linz. On the 25.7.38 Eigruber became an SS member and on the same date he was promoted to SS Standartenfuhrer, in November 1938 he was promoted to SS Oberfuhrer and at the same time he was awarded the SS officers sword by the Reichfuhrer SS Heinrich Himmler, he received steady promotion after this date, on the 21.6.1943 he was promoted to SS Obergrupenfuhrer. It is interesting to note that Eigruber was also an SA General and on the 9.11.43 he was promoted to SA Obergrupenfuhrer. Eigruber was also a member of the Reichstag. In 1941 Eigruber accompanied Himmler on a visit to the Mouthausen Concentration camp which was located near Linz and he apparently visited the camp many times after this visit, he also visited the euthanasia institute at Hartheim several times and which was actually leased by Eigruber to the institute. Adolf Hitler was a frequent visitor to Linz as it was one of his favourite city\'s and it is where he had spent a good part of his childhood, after the war he planed to open a magnificent art Museum complex in Linz and which he hoped would be the art centre of the world and which would rival any other museum in any country, he even planed to retire to Linz after the war to concentrate on artistic pursuits. In the closing stages of the war Eigruber organised the defence of the Linz district and was planning to turn Linz into a fortress city until his subordinates persuaded him not to do this and to surrender the city to the American army which is what happened on the 5.5.45, but by this time Eigruber had left the city. The Gaultier was captured by American forces on the 11.8.1945. He was eventually put on trial in 1946 and executed soon after for his involvement with the Mauthausen camp.

HIMMLER INK SIGNED LETTER, VERY EARLY EXAMPLE DATED 1927. This is a very early two page letter dated 1927,this was two years before Himmler became Reichfuhrer SS, at the time when he wrote this letter he held the position of SS district leader and also NSDAP propaganda Chief. The letter is dated 4.1.1927 and his address is given as Munich so probably the NSDAP headquarters in the city. The letter was address to Philip Bouhler who at this time was the business manager of the NSDAP, later he would become chief of the Chancellery of the Fuhrer and the NSDAP, Reichleiter and SS Obergrupenfuhrer, in 1945 Bouler would take his own life probably because of his involvement with the Euthanasia program, the killing of the mentally ill. The letter informs Bouhler that he (Himmler) will be absent for a short period of time and during this period Bouhler must take care of arranging the various party meetings and rallies including one which the notorious Julius Streicher will be the speaker, Bouler will also need to deal with correspondence and organising displays of NSDAP posters. The tone of the letter is perhaps similar to how a school headmaster might correspond with a senior school pupil. The letter has a good ink signature signed, H Himmler. what is also interesting is that Himmler has made at least 8 ink alterations / corrections to the letter, in latter years this would never have happened as an SS staff member would have re-typed the letter but at this time Himmler probably had to type the letter himself. Historically important letter especially for those interested in the early development of the NSDAP and the SS, I believe this is the earliest Himmler letter I have owned and it should in my opinion be of museum interest. Complete with full English translation. Exc++

No pottery manufactures marks but probably produced in Staffordshire. The size is approximately that of a large dinner plate and it is very attractive and impressive. [Condition: Mint]

The tunic was originally issued in about 1936 with black Kreiss level district piping to the collar and collar patches but in 1938 the district colour was changed by order of the NSDAP from black to white piping, so the owner changed the collar piping to this new colour in 1938. The collar patches are the 1936 model with two silver bullion swastika decorated L rank bars on brown velvet backing for the rank of Kreiss Hauptstellenleiter which is a mid level rank and again they would originally have had black piping but this was changed at the same time as the collar piping was changed to White. The tunic would have originally been issued with silver metal buttons decorated with the eagle and swastika but in 1938 political leaders were ordered to change there buttons to the gold type as silver buttons would no longer be aloud to be worn. The right sleeve is fitted with a party arm band but it is an unusual example and slimmer than the standard type, red cotton arm band with white circle and black swastika and with title which is printed in large black letters, NSDAP EINSATZ-BEREITSCHAFT, which shows that the original owner was assigned to special service in the NSDAP. The inside collar of the tunic is factory marked with a long series of number, the interior of the shirt has five cloth belt hook holders each of which is marked, BOBI Gesch Gesch. There was also a cloth RZM tag but this is now completely faded and no text can now be seen. A very interesting political leaders brown shirt. Near mint.

THIRD REICH NAVAL DAGGER KNOT. Silver bullion example with 42cm silver cord that would be correct for a naval dagger, army dagger and a few other models. The base of the acorn is the woven type normally considered to be Naval issue but I have had this style of knot on army and other models in the past so in my opinion they are probably just a makers variation but perhaps the maker was based near the German coast so many of his sales came from the navy.

THIRD REICH NAVAL DAGGER PORTEPPE. Silver dagger knot, the base of the acorn is the woven type often associated with naval daggers although probably just a makers variation who happened to supply most of there production to the navy, I have also occasionally had examples of this style attached to army daggers.

THIRD REICH NAVAL OFFICERS DAGGER BY ALCOSO, LATE WAR EXAMPLE WITH KNOT. This is an extremely late production dagger dating from about 1942. The dagger is produced in white metal and then gilded, this was a war time economy measure as brass was required for the war effort. Excellent detail to the eagle and swastika pommel which still retains much original gilt finish with the silver base metal visible. The crossguard is the special Alcoso style with the anchor to the obverse side and diamond to this reverse side, this style of crossguard is only ever seen on Alcoso daggers from the Third Reich period, all other makers used the double anchor design. The white grip looks very nice but there is a hair line crack to the reverse side.

The scabbard is a work of art, WKC offered a number of deluxe scabbards decorated with acorn and oakleaves but this is one of the rarer delux patterns that they offered. The Brass scabbard still retains traces of the gilt finish and it is decorated with five panels of oakleaves and acorns on the obvers and reverse sides and with a hammered effect to the background of varying size. The scabbard bands are also decorated with oakleaves and acorns with a raised border to both edges, the suspension loops and rings are also engraved with oakleaves, this really is an amazing and very high quality scabbard. Complete with pale gold naval officers knot. If you want a really special naval officers dagger, this is probably it. Near mint,
