ALLGEMEINE SS NCO BLACK PEAKED CAP.
This is a superb looking hat with full SS markings to the inside. Black woolen ribbed top with matching black centre band with white piping. Complete with metal SS eagle and skull and both still retain much original silver frosted finish, SS style black leather chin strap which is held in place by two black side buttons. The interior of the hat features the standard rust brown lining with celluloid patch which is 95% complete and it features the gold SS runes in a circle and also the size stamping 54. The brown sweat band is in perfect condition and there is an SS Tuchmutze label to the underside. The underside of the peak is stamped with the SS runes acceptance mark. The cap is in fine condition and displays beautifully but there was in the past a small split or perhaps moth nip to the underside of the hat on the left hand side which has been carefully repaired in the past, it is very minor and it is not really noticeable until pointed out especially as it is on the side of the hat, I have priced the cap at considerably less than I normally sell them for because of this. The Black SS cap is one of the most iconic symbols of Third Reich and no collection is really complete with out at last one example.[Condition: Exc++]

SA DAGGER 1933 MODEL BY RARE MAKER RUDOLF SCHMIDT.
This is a very rare maker, I do not recall having this maker before so if you collect SA daggers by maker this is a must have dagger.

The blade is in excellent condition, the obverse side features the SA motto and the reverse side the makers details, Rudolf Schmidt with the trade mark of what appears to be a child in swaddling cloth or perhaps a child's doll, this is a very strange looking trade mark.

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++]

HITLER YOUTH PROTOTYPE KNIFE BY EICKHORN.
This is a very unusual prototype HJ knife possibly produced for a special HJ honour guard, this is one of a pair of identical knifes that recently turned up, unfortunately the other one was badly damaged. Silver plated gray metal hilt typical of war time production and the silver platting is about 90% remaining, the wear is mostly to the pommel from the rubbing of the grip strap. The grip plates are most unusual and unique as they are produced in a smooth brown celluloid, the obverse side is factory fitted with the HJ enamel diamond, the enamel shows some wear and age but it is still all complete. The blade is in excellent condition showing just light age, the obverse side is etched with the 1935 / 1941 pattern Eickhorn squirrel trade mark and it is also etched with the Eickorn code being RZM M7/66, the blade is stamped 40 which is for the year of manufacture 1940.The scabbard is in fine condition still retaining at least 95% original black paint. Complete with unique white leather belt loop and grip strap. It is known that the Hitler youth Visited Japan in 1938 for a special state visit and they did wear white leather straps with there edged weapons, the knife I have was obviously produced after that event in 1940 but it does show that white hangers were worn on special occasions. It is also worth noting that the brown colour of the grip is very similar to the colour of the HJ uniform so this might have some significance. What ever this HJ knife was produced for it is 100% original and it is certainly worthy of further research. [Condition: Exc++]
