1ST MODEL LUFTWAFFE DAGGER BY SMF WITH SOLID LEATHER SCABBARD AND THE SCABBARD FITTINGS ARE HELD IN PLACE BY LARGE METAL STAPLES. This is an extremely early production dagger often described as a DLV / Luftwaffe dagger because of the very early vintage and the belief that they were probably used by both organizations for a short time in 1935. All early nickel silver fittings, the pommel and crossguard are inset with early brass swastikas.The blue leather grip is in perfect condition. Beautiful mint blade by SMF Solingen and it is also stamped with a Luftwaffe acceptance stamp.The scabbard shell is the very early style which is constructed in sold leather, later examples will have a leather covered metal shell, the matching nickel silver fittings are the early type which are held in place by a single large metal rivet on the reverse side of each fitting (latter examples the scabbard fitting are held in place by screws). Complete with matching nickel silver chain hanger.The dagger is in extremely nice condition with just one slight crease in the scabbard shell probably from movement of the internal scabbard springs which is something often seen on these very early and scarce solid leather scabbards. A really nice dagger with lots of history. [Condition: Exc++]

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. This is a really nice example with a nice matching age patina, it has been several years since i have had a 1st pattern railway dagger to offer for sale and although 1st pattern Railways are seen by other makers, Klass is the maker that most collectors prefer and it is certainly the only maker i would buy.

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. [Condition: Exc++]
A RARE ARMY SONDERFUHRERS PEAKED CAP BY EREL. A very rare Sonderfuhrers peaked cap, this is only the 3rd example that I have owned in over 25 years.

Interior of cap features gold silk lining with celluloid patch with makers details, OFFIZIER KLEIDERKASSE BERLIN,EREL SONDERKLASSE and being the EXTRA model, under the celluloid patch there is a cloth label with the officers name, leather sweat band marked EREL PATENT STIRNSCHUTZ.There are a few moth nips to the cap, mostly on the base edge so they can not been seen when displayed. The army Sonderfuhrer was a civilian specialist serving with the army and holding military rank and privileges, there specialties could be many number of things such as political education, construction, criminal investigator and even specialists investigating captured art. Almost imposable peaked cap to find especially if you specialize in collecting only EREL hats as some collectors do. [Condition: Exc++]
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++]

EARLY HITLER YOUTH HONOUR KNIFE BY WUSTHOF WITH ENGRAVED HILT. This is an extremely rare example of the special HJ honour knife with engraved hilt and it is from the very earliest period of the NSDAP government so probably 1933/1934, the standard Hitler youth knife is almost certainly modeled on this rare early and much larger HJ knife, the size is very striking when compared to the standard HJ knife. The pommel is beautifully engraved with the HJ swastika diamond surrounded by decorative oakleaves. The grip plates appear to be wood and are chequered and they are in fine condition. The blade is maker marked on the obverse side, Karl Wustof Solingen and which I believe is the only recorded maker of this rare HJ knife pattern, the reverse side is marked Gladiator which they often are, the blade has been very lightly sharpened on the cutting edge but over all this is still a very nice blade. The painted scabbard retains much original black paint and just shows light age and wear. Complete with black leather belt loop and grip retaining strap. A very important and rare HJ knife which is documented in the various reference books but it is often missing from even advanced collections. Size when in scabbard is almost 11 inches long. If you are an HJ collector this is a must have knife, I have only offered two or possibly three others over the last 30+ years and this is probably the best of all of them. [Condition: Exc++]

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]

If you collect German daggers this is one of the hardest models to find, there were only two makers who produced the deluxe senior model hunting dagger, Eickhorn and Alcoso and although the Eickhorn model is very rare the Alcoso version is exceptionally rare and it is normally missing from even the most advanced collections, in 35 years as a dealer this is only the 2nd Alcoso example I have ever offered for sale.

GOLD PARTY BADGE OF THE NSDAP BELONGING TO FRANZ WEITESSER WITH LARGE RESEARCH FILE. This is a superb large size 30mm gold party badge in fine condition with the more desirable and difficult to find military style pin to the reverse side.The badge is in just about mint condition, the oakleaf wreath still retains almost all original gilt finish and there is no damage to the enamel badge.The reverse side also retains almost all of the original gilt finish and it is marked GES GESCH in a box and below this the original owners NSDAP membership number 52272, the military style pin and hook are in perfect working order. The badge was awarded to Franz Weitesser, he was born on the 8.9.1905 in Oberdonau in Austria, he was married to Cristina who was German and apparently they did not have any children. They lived in the town of Freistadt in the Ober Oesterreich and his occupation was secret investigator. He joined the NSDAP on the 1.2.27 with membership number 52272 which matches the number on the reverse side of the badge. Mysteriously he joined the party for a second time on the 1.4.1928 while already a member but this was soon realized and his second membership was canceled and he retained his original membership number 52272 until the end of the war, why he tried to join the party twice is really a bit of a mystery and not something i have ever encountered before. There is a large document file accompanying the badge of over 30 pages so i imagine much more can be discovered from these from careful study. A beautiful example, gold party badges have become very difficult to find recently and this really is an outstanding documented example. [Condition: Near Mint]

IMPERIAL GERMAN DELUX QUALITY NAVAL OFFICERS DAGGER BELONGING TO CAPTAIN EHLERS WITH RARE PRIVATE PURCHASE SCABBARD AND DAMASCUSE BLADE WITH PRESENTATION INSRIPTION. Superb deluxe naval officers dagger belonging to Captain Gustav Ehlers with a fascinating history connected to England, he took part in the naval attack on several English coastal towns in 1914. Open crown brass pommel and Imperial style crossguard still retain traces of the original gilt finish. Beautiful bone grip has several old hairline cracks which are normally seen on these grips. Superb matching private purchase scabbard features panels of oakleaves and acorns and it is extremely attractive and in fine condition. The fine quality damascuse blade is in superb condition and it is the maiden hair style, the detail to the blade is exceptional, the obverse side of the blade is beautifully engraved, BIELER S/L EHLERS (Bieler presented the dagger to his dear friend Ehlers). Captain Ehlers was born on the 14.12.1885, he joined the German navy on the 6.4.1904 which interestingly was the same date as Bieler also Joined. Ehlers was promoted to Lieutenant on 28.9.1907, senior Lieutenant on the 16.10.09 and Captain on the 17.10.1915. He served on a number of Battleships before WW1 and in early 1914 was Inspector of the naval school at Flensberg. In August 1914 he became the Captain of the Cruiser Hamburg serving as the flagship and part of the escort for the north sea U.boat flotilla. On the 15th and 16th of December 1914 the Hamburg participated in the naval bombardment of the English towns of, Scarborough, Hartlepool and Whitby in which much damage was inflicted on the towns with 592 casualties, of whom 137 died, the attack caused public outrage towards the German navy for an attack mostly conducted against civilians,private buildings and homes. During the battle of Jutland in 1916 the Hamburg was a part of the scouting group. On the 28th of August 1916 Ehlers was awarded the iron cross 1st class. From 3.3.1917 Ehlers served at the naval torpedo school for several months, he then served on a number of ships until the end of WW1 and was with the fleet at Scape Flow when the German naval fleet was scuttled. Checking the 1914 / 1918 naval rank list there is only one officer by the name of Bieler listed but several named Ehlers, but i can say for certainty that the dagger belonged to, Kapitanleutnant Gustav Ehlers, the reason for this is that Bieler and Ellers joined the navy on the same date and strangely even many of there promotions were on the same date, the other offers named Ehlers were much younger officers and almost certainly had no contact with Bieler. Captain Bieler served as a U.Boat officer and during WW1 as mentioned above Captain Ehlers served on the cruiser Hamburg as the escort captain for the North sea U.Boats which Bieler was probably also serving with, this is probably just a coincidence but still interesting.The dagger comes with some research concerning Kapitanleutnant Gustave Ellers. This is a dagger with historical importance because of the connection to the attack on the coastal towns of England and so this dagger should probably be on display in a museum in England, especially perhaps Scarborough town museum.

LATE VICTORIAN ENGLISH WALL PLAQUE OF GENERAL SIR REDVERS HENRY BULLER. A very attractive late 1890's wall plaque depicting General Buller waring full military uniform with his military decorations. General Buller was a highly decorated officer and his awards included the country's highest bravery award, the Victoria cross. He joined the army in 1858 after purchasing an officers commission, he then served in various country's of the Empire seeing much military action, he was awarded the VC in 1879 during the Zulu wars in Africa. During the 2nd Boar War he initially served as commander in chief of the British forces in South Africa but after some military set backs he was replaced by General Roberts and he subsequently commanded the army in Natal where he did have some victories over the Boar army, he returned to England in 1900, he died in 1908. During the Boar War the British troops gave General Buller the nickname, Reverse Buller. Historians also have not been that kind to the General describing him as the bad joke of the Victorian army, there verdict being that he was an admirable Captain, an adequate Major, a barely satisfactory Colonel, and a disasterus General. 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]

SA DAGGER 1933 MODEL WITH FULL ROHM INSCRIPTION BY EICKHORN. This is a superb personalized SA Rohm honour dagger with a complete inscription and with some interesting features and it is certainly one of the nicest examples I have owned. All early nickel silver fittings, the lower crossguard is marked with bench number 4, there is no SA group mark and this is occasionally seen with Rohm daggers, it is believed that daggers with out a group mark were personally presented by Rohm and not by the SA groups and were probably presented to his Staff members and to personal acquaintances and friends. The brown wooden grip is also very interesting, it is inset with the SA insignia and silver eagle and at the very bottom of the grip it has been finely carved with a small shield with a design to the centre, probably a family coat of arms or the owners initials, but after 86 years it is difficult to make out now, the only other person I know that featured insignia in this position on his SA dagger was Rohm so this really is an extraordinary feature to see. The blade is in beautiful near mint condition, the obverse side features the SA motto and the reverse side the complete Rohm inscription and it also features the small Eickhorn double oval trade mark 1933/35 patten but this example features the squirrel with the smooth tale which is rarer than the serrated tale type, but both are seen on Rohm daggers. Brown anodized scabbard is in superb condition with much factory finish remaining, the scabbard is fitted with nickel silver mounts and the lower mount has a small dent to the base of the ball which most do. Complete with short brown leather hanger with correct early type metal clip. This really is an exceptional example, expensive but I doubt if you will find a better or more interesting example and it is close to near mint condition and so if you want the best this is probably it. [Condition: Exc++]

The blade features the SA motto to the obverse side, the reverse side features the Rohm inscription with only the name removed and the remainder of the inscription is in excellent condition, the blade also features the Eickhorn small double oval trademark as used from 1933 until 1935, the squirrel is the pattern with the serrated tail, the blade has some light age spotting but over all it is still very good. Brown anodized scabbard with matching nickel silver fitting is in fine condition. As most collector know approximately 100,000 SA Rohm dagger were awarded in 1934, shortly after Rohm was declared a traitor and executed, an order was then sent out to the various SA groups ordering the members to destroy or at least remove the Rohm inscription from the blade, most complied but a few opted to remove just the name from the blade. A good example at a very reasonable price [Condition: Exc++]

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………..
