This dagger really has it all, rare maker, early quality and named to officer and which i am sure would make an interesting research project.[Condition: Exc++]

BLOOD ORDER MEDAL, 2ND PATTERN.
This is an original example of the very rare 2nd pattern Blood Order medal which is one of the highest awards of the NSDAP, this example has considerable wear and some condition issues but it is priced at the fraction of the cost of a perfect example.The obverse side of the medal features a large eagle clutching a wreath with the historical date 9 NOV and Munchen 1923-1933. The reverse side features the Feldherrnhalle monument over which is a swastika with motto, UND IHR DOCH GESIEGT (and yet you have conquered), below the monument it is stamped with the medal issue number 2045 and also the silver mark 800. This medal has had a hard life, at some time in its distant past a small hole has been drilled close to the suspension loop so it could be attached to a key ring and for many years it has knocked against the keys causing scratches,nicks and pitting, it has also lost all of its frosted finish and with some knocks to the rim of the medal. When I obtained the medal the suspension loop was detached but this has been re-attached and i have also managed to obtain a length of blood order ribbon to complete the medal. A good silver restorer would be able to fill the hole and almost certainly improve the medal. The 2nd pattern Blood order was mainly awarded to Austrians who took part in in the Austrian putsch in 1934 which was an attempt to topple the Austrian government and replace it with Nazi government, some medals were also awarded to Germans who had suffered imprisonment or serious injury in the service of the NSDAP during the years of struggle, Martin Bormann received such an award for his time spent in prison for political murder in the 1920's. Although the condition is not the best it is still a fascinating medal that has seen a lot of history, the last mint example I had sold for over 5k so this is a real bargain. [Condition: Exc]

THIRD REICH NAVAL OFFICERS SWORD BY WKC WITH SCARCE ENGRAVED BLADE.
Most Third Reich naval swords have a plain blade but the example i have to offer is a deluxe officers example with an engraved blade. White celluloid grip is in perfect condition. All brass fittings still retain some original gilt finish and have a fine old age patina as the sword has never been cleaned but could easily be if required. The superb and highly detailed lions head hilt features red and green glass eyes with highly detailed oakleaves to the backstrap.The folding guard is decorated with oakleaves and also a large fouled anchor. The engraved blade is by WKC and features there Third Reich pattern trade mark which is a stamped knights head and letters WKC. The blade is beautifully etched on the obverse and reveres sides with long floral panels which display battle ships, fouled anchor, flags and other naval designs, even the spine of the blade is engraved with oakleaves, the beautiful blade is very impressive and it is in near mint condition.The black leather scabbard is in excellent condition and it is fitted with decorated brass fittings which have a matching age patina, the upper fitting reverse side is stamped N2541. Third Reich naval officers swords are rare and hard to find especially with an engraved blade, I probably see at least 25 daggers to every sword. [Condition: Exc++]
