If you are looking for a text book example of this rare dagger model I am sure you will be happy with this one as it is in very nice condition.The black grip is in perfect condition and it is slightly longer than a standard army grip which is correct for a black grip from this maker and is what you want to see on a original example.The pommel and crossguard are the Klass style. Blade is by Klass Solingen and it has some very faint age spotting mostly to the lower portion but over all it is still extremely nice. Superb matching silver scabbard, the scabbard bands have the asterisks marks found only on Klass daggers. Complete with silver knot.

A VERY RARE ARMY OFFICERS SWORD BY PACK INCORPORATING THE LUFTWAFFE EAGLE IN THE DESIGN. This extremely rare sword is basically an army lions head sword but which incorporates the Luftwaffe eagle in the hilt design, this model was only produced by Pack and always appear to be of very early vintage, I have seen 2 or 3 of these swords over the years in very advanced collections but this is the first time that i have had an example to offer for sale.The black celluloid grip is in mint condition.The hilt is produced in gilt brass and still retains traces of the original gilt finish, lions head hilt with red glass eyes, the crossguard features an open wing eagle and swastika, the backstrap is decorated with oakleaves, the knuckle bow features the Luftwaffe eagle which as stated above is unique for this maker and is extremely rare. Mint blade by Pack Solingen featuring there large Siegfried trade mark. Complete with black painted scabbard which is in excellent condition. The rarity of this model sword can not be overstated and it is probably a unique opportunity to obtain an example and is perhaps especially interesting to a collector of Luftwaffe edged weapons. This model sword has been referred to in the past as a model for army paratrooper officers, an interesting theory and it is a possibility but there is nothing to confirm this title. [Condition: Exc++]
ADOLF HITLER BRONZE FIGURE. A very good and highly detailed bronze coloured metal figure of the Fuhrer Adolf Hitler standing at about 11 inches or 27cm in height and dating to about 1935.This is an early depiction of the Fuhrer wearing brown shirt political uniform with swastika arm band and wearing his WW1 awards.The original painted finish shows slight wear to the high points but it is still at least 95% remaining.The Figure is mounted on a marble plinth. Most figures of the Fuhrer are the bust type featuring head and shoulders it is exceptionally unusual to find a complete figure. I have seen reproductions of this figure produced in bronze coloured resin for the antiques trade but this is 100% original metal example from the period of the Third Reich. [Condition: Exc++]

The skull mounted to the center band is the scarce early 1st pattern type which retains much original silver finish, the eagle is the 2nd pattern and the silver frosting perfectly matches the skull so they are obviously a matched set, a perfect example of a transitional form Allgemeine SS NCO's peaked cap.The interior features the standard rust brown oil cloth lining with celluloid patch with the large gold SS runes and size stamp 55, the brown leather sweat band is complete but shows some light wear just as you would expect, under the sweat band is an early style RZM tag.The underside of the visor has traces of the black SS RZM stamping but much of this is now worn away by age and wear.

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]

During the 1920's secret society's existed in Germany especially in the university's and attracting a right wing membership, they were basically political debating / drinking clubs and apparently some of the membership carried daggers and this is one of those, they are fairly rare as in the last 30+ years this is only the 3rd example i have owned. The dagger is rather striking and scary in appearance, all the metal hilt fitting are produced in brass, the pommel is modeled as a human skull and it is highly detailed, the crossguard is designed as crossed human bones (skull and crossbones). The grip is black leather with a gilt wire wrap. The blade is polished steel, it is bright but shows some age and minor wear. Black leather scabbard is in excellent condition and it is fitted with brass mounts. I have seen at least one of these daggers in the past described as an SS prototype dagger and priced very highly & considerably more than what i am asking for mine, obviously it is not an SS daggers but it would certainly have made a great design for one.

GOLD PARTY BADGE OF THE NSDAP, SPECIAL ADOLF HITLER AWARD FOR 1943 WITH UNIQUE DATE. This is an example of the very rare Adolf Hitler special award honour gold party badge with his AH initials and date of the award to the reverse side of the badge rather than the standard type with the owners party membership number, this example is even more unusual as it features a unique presentation date.This is a large 30mm example, the obverse side is the standard format of gilt oakleaves wreath with enamel NSDAP badge to center which is in perfect condition. The reverse side features the military style pin and hook and is marked GES GESCH in a box with air vent hole, below this is the unique date 15.5.1943 with the AH initials, most of the specially presented Adolf Hitler gold party badge's will have a January 30th award date, it is very unusual to see a different month and day date and probably less than 5% will feature this.The date possibly refers to a military event, a meeting with Adolf Hitler, promotion or a Birthday but i have not been able to identify which, the Warsaw Jewish ghetto uprising was crushed and the survivors surrender on the 16.5.1943 so that might be significant. Further research is required to hopefully identify the original owner and it will certainly make an interesting reserch project. Other than the date this is a standard example of the special AH award badge and it is in superb condition. [Condition: Near Mint]
GOLD PARTY BADGE OF THE NSDAP. This is a small 25mm example in mint condition, it is not maker marked but it is obviously by Deschler.

LUFTWAFFE M35 SINGLE DECAL HELMET. This interesting helmet actually started out as a double decal helmet with a Luftwaffe blue gray paint finish. In about 1940-1941 the helmet was converted in to a Luftwaffe single decal field gray combat helmet, the helmet was completely repainted and a Luftwaffe single decal eagle was then added. The field gray paint has worn away slightly with age and the original Luftwaffe paint is clearly visasable but more importantly so is the state colours decal which obviously confirms that this was originally a double decal helmet, i have left the helmet as found but I am sure more if not almost all of the state decal could be exposed by careful removal of a small area of paint.The paint that was added in 1940 or just after is heavy and thick and this has covered up the interior helmet markings.The helmet retains about 90% original war time field gray paint finish, the Luftwaffe eagle decal is also about 90% or more complete, it is a very nice decal.The original leather liner is complete and just shows light age wear, it is size marked 59 so this is a very large helmet which are always more in demand than small examples.The chin strap is missing but I do get replacements available from time to time. A very interesting helmet with a lot of history, which is actually a double decal but i am selling it as a single decal for the reasons stated above. [Condition: Exc++]

RAD MANS DAGGER, VERY RARE EARLY EICKHORN VARIATION WITH FULL STAGHORN GRIP. This is the rare variation RAD mans dagger with full staghorn grip and which were officially produced for only one year from 1934 until 1935 and only by Eickhorn and were probably a prototype before standardization took over. This is a very early impressive RAD dagger produced in early solid nickel silver and so it is very heavy, the quality is exceptional. The grip plates are produced using the highest quality staghorn and the staghorn on this rare early Eickhorn pattern extends completely over the beak,which is different to the latter standard model in which the staghorn ends before the peak. The impressive large scimitar style blade features the RAD motto on the the obverse side, the reverse side is etched RADJ in a triangle and Ges Gesch (patent pending) and below this the very early small oval Eickhorn trade mark which was used until 1935 when it was replaced by the new style trade mark, the blade shows some faint spotting and age but over all it is still very nice and bright.The black anodized scabbard has matching nickel silver mounts and it is in excellent condition. Although this model dagger is normally referred to as an enlisted mans dagger i am sure most of these very early full stag grip types were issued to officers as the official officers pattern dagger was not issued until 1937. A rare chance to obtain one of these rare RAD full stag grip daggers, it has been many years since i have had one to offer for sale.

SA HIGH LEADERS HONOR DAGGER BELONGING TO SA OBERGRUPENFUHRER FRANZ BOCK. It has been a number of years sine I have had one of these very rare SA honor daggers to offer for sale and this is a superb chained example being the 1938 model with an Eickhorn maker marked damascuse blade, this dagger was recently obtained direct from the Bock family in Germany. This dagger is especially interesting to collectors as it features the 1935 / 41 Eickhorn trade mark, this trade mark is recorded on SA honor daggers but mostly they will feature the 1933 / 35 trade mark or the late 1941 pattern, the 1935 / 1941 trade marked is extremely rare to find on an honor dagger. The fine quality silver crossguards are the honor pattern which are decorated with oak leaves and acorns to the obverse and reverse sides, the upper crossguard is internally stamped 49 and the lower crossguard is stamped 89, the numbers do not match but this is normal for an honor dagger, on most original honor daggers the numbers will not match, only on rare occasions will you find matching numbers. The brown wooden grip is a typical late 1930's Eickhorn example but featuring a very fine grain, it is inset with the silver eagle and SA insignia. The blade is produced in beautiful damascuse steel and the quality and condition is outstanding, the obverse side features the SA motto with oak leaf and acorn sprig to each end of the motto, the gilding to the motto and oak leaves is remarkable with almost 100% still remaining (this is original gilding, it has not been re-gilded as most SA honor's have), the obverse side of the blade features the rarely seen Eickhorn Solingen 1935 / 41 squirrel trade mark, this fine blade would rate near mint. The tang of the blade is lightly stamped on the obverse side with the capital letter D for damascuse which is the correct marking for the latter produced honor dagger blade, early produced example's will feature the full title Damast, the tang probably also originally featured the HCA billet clamp mark, but if so this was ground of during the fitment of the grip at the factory. It is interesting to note that there is a fine quality brown leather buffer pad fitted to the blade, I have only ever seen this a couple of times on honor daggers but it is a nice extra feature to see, if you lift the pad there is a deep age pattination around it against the lower crossguard. The scabbard features the original brown leather covering, the leather is applied to the scabbards in two parts and is cut around the fittings which is the correct method for an SA honor dagger scabbard, it has a fine brown grain and it is totally original (most honor daggers have had there leather covering replaced), it shows a little wear mostly to the reverse side but all the leather is remaining and it is still in beautiful condition. The matching silver scabbard mounts are the honor pattern with grooved fittings to the obverse and reverse sides, the center mount features the swivel type fitting not the early riveted ramped type which is seen on the more common early type chained honor daggers. The chained hanger features links decorated with swastikas, five upper links and seven lower links, the belt clip is decorated with the large SA insignia, the clip is still in working order, the reverse side of the chain is plain with out makers mark or RZM code marking which is totally correct for a chained honor dagger of this period of production, only the latter chained honor daggers with the Eickhorn 1941 trade mark will have an RZM marked chain, the earlier examples are always plain with out any maker markings at all. This dagger probably dates to 1939-1940 period, the earliest chained honor daggers date from 1938 and they used up existing old stock damascuse blades featuring the Eickhorn 1933 / 35 trade mark, when these were exhausted new blades were produced featuring the new up to date 1935 / 41 trade mark and the new type and more simplified scabbard center mount swivel fitting, which is the model which I have. There are basically three types / periods of chained SA honor daggers, the most commonest are those that feature the post 1941 Eickhorn trade mark and the RZM marked chain hanger, the damascuse blade although made of original damasuse steel has a more factory made look to it than the earlier types, after that the second commonest are those that feature the 1933 / 35 trade mark with riveted and ramped scabbard fittings and a non maker marked chain, but the rarest with out doubt is this example which features the 1935 / 41 Eickhorn trade mark and the new type swivel ring scabbard fittings and with an unmarked chain. When I originally purchased this dagger although I knew it belonged to SA Obergrupenfuhrer Franz Bock, I thought it was unmarked as most honor daggers are with out the owners details or name, it was only after returning home and carefully examining the throat of the top scabbard mount and cleaning of some old dried oil and dirt that I noticed the very small but nicely engraved owners initials FB ( the F is very clear the B is more age worn now), this then conclusively confirms that the original owner of this SA chained high leaders honor dagger was SA General Franz Bock. Franz Bock was born on the 28th of June 1905 in Kaltenbrunn, he attended Volksschule, his early professional carrier was as a cashier in a bank and then working in the tobacco and ceramic industry. Bock joined the NSDAP and the SA in 1922 making him a very early member, he took part in the Munich Putsch with Hitler on the 9.11.1923 and was awarded the Blood Order medal for his involvement in this historical event (Blood Order medal number 791). Bock rejoined the party and the SA when it was reformed in 1925, NSDAP number 33014. His carrier and promotion in the SA was rapid and impressive, from 1927 -1932 he was the SA Fuhrer for Worms-Rheinhessen, by 1930 he was an SA Sturmfuhrer, 1931 he was promoted to SA Sturmbannfuhrer, 1932 SA Standartenfuhrer and Adjutant to SA Group West based in Koblenze, he then held various Adjutant positions untill mid 1933, 1.7.1933 he was promoted to SA Oberfuhrer serving as Stabsfuhrer for SA Gruppe Bayerische Ostmark, from October 1934 untill February 1935 he was the commander of SA Jager Standarter 3 and then from March 1935 until December 1936 he was the commander of SA Brigade 75 based at Gladbach-Rheydt, he was promoted to SA Brigadfuhrer on the 20.4.1935. From the 31.3.1937 untill 1942 he served with the high command of the SA (OBERSTE SA FUHRUNG or better known as the OSAF) as a department chief and successfully heading over time various departments in this SA organization, his last assignment with the OSAF was as chief of the SA Gruppenschulen. On the 9.11.1938 Bock was promoted to SA Gruppenfuhrer. After the death of the SA commander of SA Group Niederrhein, Bock was transferred to lead this SA group and held this position from 1.2.1942 untill 1945, on the 9.11.1944 Bock was promoted to SA Obergruppenfuhrer. Bock was also a member of the Reichstag representing Dusseldorf Ost from 1936 untill 1945, he also held a reserve rank in an army infantry regiment but probably did not see any military service as his SA carrier would have taken up most of his time. Bock survived the war and died in 1974 in Koln. Complete with the dagger is an original copy of the 1938 published book, THE SA BROWN BATTALIONS, page 32 shows an excellent photograph of Franz Bock at this time serving with the OSAH, he is in full SA Brigadefuhrers uniform wearing blood order ribbon, gold party badge and one other award. This truly is an exceptional dagger with a great history and it is in beautiful condition, very few SA honor dagger's can be attributed to an individual and especially to one as interesting as SA Obergrupenfuhrer Franz Bock…………PRICE ON REQUEST………..

SS GENERALS AUSWEIS ID CARD WITH UNIFORM PHOTOGRAH.

The card also has the official stamp to show that the bearer has permission to carry a weapon. SS Brigadfuhrer Freidrich Hauser was born on the 28.12.1898 in Ludwigshafen in the Rheinland and was the son of a cabinet maker, he served in the German army during WW1 until he was wounded and awarded the wound badge. During the 1920's he worked for, I.G.Farben the company that would eventually become notorious with its connection with the concentration camps and its involvement in the extermination of Jews, gypsies and other so called undesirables, so it is feasible and a real possibility that Hauser introduced this company to Himmler especially considering Housers later involvement with the SS Hauptamt. Hauser joined the SS in 1930 and the NSDAP in 1931 and he was commissioned as an SS officer in December 1931 serving with the 10th SS Standarter and specializing in administration and collecting funds from from supporters, he was promoted to SS Sturmbanfuhrer on the 28.2.1934 and became administration officer for SS Abschnitt XXIX and then as administration leader for Oberabschnitt Rhein. In 1935 he was transfered to the SS Hauptamt dealing with recruitment, in 1937 he was transfered to the SS Hauptamt dealing with SS statistics and was promoted to SS Oberfuhrer, he was promoted again in 1940 to SS Brigaderfuhrer and became commander for SS Abschnitt XI. In 1943 he was killed while trying to apprehend an escaped RAF officer. It is extremely difficult to find even an SS officer Ausweis ID card but to a General it is almost unique and this is the only example i have offered for sale in the last 30+ years and if you are an SS or document collector this is probably a unique opportunity.[Condition: Exc++]
