1ST MODEL LUFTWAFFE DAGGER BY EICKHORN, SUPERB CONDITION. This is a late aluminum example in exceptional condition, it would be very difficult to improve on this one.The aluminum hilt fittings are in almost mint condition with all gilt finish remaining to the pommel and crossguard swastikas, there is one tiny rub mark on the top of the pommel on the reverse side but it is well away from the swastika.The blue leather grip is in mint condition.The blade is also in mint condition and it is by Eickhorn Solingen featuring there 1935/41 pattern trade mark and it is also stamped with a Luftwaffe acceptance stamp.The matching scabbard is also in exceptional condition, the blue leather is in perfect condition and so are the three match metal fittings. Complete with matching chain hanger. It would be almost impossible to improve on this one as it is very close to mint condition. [Condition: Mint]
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++]
1ST PATTERN RAILWAY OFFICERS DAGGER BY KLASS. 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.

The white ceramic jug depicts a British Soldier in karki military uniform holding a riffle with inscription below, A GENTLEMAN IN KHARKI and with artist signature.

A LARGE BRONZE MODEL OF A BRITISH LIFE GUARD OFFICER, FIRE SIDE SET. This huge and very heavy bronze colored figure measures just under 3ft in total height and sits on a bronze plinth, it was produced as a fire side set probably for a large country house.The figure depicts a British life guard officer in full parade uniform with plumed helmet and ceremonial sword. The reverse side features poker, fire tongs and coal brush. The figure is stamped with a registration number and makers name. This is a very heavy figure and there might be an extra charge for postage depending on service and destination. [Condition: Exc++]
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++]

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++]

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.

He survived the war and subsequently started a company developing and designing submarines, he died in 1994 and this set comes from his family in Germany. All early brass hilt fittings still retaining some original gilt finish, excellent detail to the eagle pommel with good clear swastika.The orange grip is in mint condition.The blade is by WKC and it is double etched with the fouled anchor and sailing ship design, there is some faint patches of age spotting but over all this is an extremely nice blade.The scabbard is a very rare extra deluxe pattern featuring panels of oakleaves and acorns, WKC produced at least 10 special scabbard patterns all are extremely rare but this is one of the harder one's to find of the set. Complete with silver knot, brocade belt with with silver administration buckle and matching naval hanger also with silver fittings which is correct for an engineer officer involved with naval technical design although he eventually achieved combat experience. The dagger is contained in its original blue wool naval dagger storage bag, attached to the bag is Gablers aluminium ID or dog tag which is stamped, A ULRICH GABLER JNG.OFFZ.R.1939. A superb historical set of museum quality which comes with some research concerning the owner but i am sure much more could be easily located.

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]

FRENCH NAPOLEONIC ARMY BRIQUET CUTLASS CIRCA 1810. Impressive brass hilt, the revers side is stamped 62 WDI. The blade measures 24 inches long and shows some spotting and wear.

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]
GOLD PARTY BADGE OF THE NSDAP BELONGING TO SA OFFICER ERWIN FRANK.

During the war Frank served as an NCO in Luftgau-Kommando VI Munster/Westfarlen, possibly with a flak crew defending the city. Complete with large research file containing 10 pages of documentation about this interesting SA officer, i am sure much more could be discovered about this officer from careful study of these documents. A really lovely badge with a fascinating documented history which i can highly recommend.[ Condition: Mint]
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 very good example of the 25mm badge by Deschler.

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.

He was killed in action on the 30.6.1944 and was posthumously promoted to Major.The Hohenbergs are an extremely important family as they are directly related to the Austrian Royal family and Archduke Ferdinand who was assassinated in 1914, this event was the main reason for war being declared in 1914 which became know as the great war or WW1.The original family titles include, Prince of Hohenberg and the Duke of Hohenberg.

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.

Attached to the hilt ring is a large and very unusual sword portepee, it is not the standard type but it has always been on this sword and it would be impossible to remove it with out cutting it as it is so tightly and permanently attached.
