ARMY OFFICERS DAGGER BY RARE MAKER, RUDOLF BUCHEL.
This dagger dates from the early war period.The pommel and crossguard still retain much original silver finish with fine detail to the army eagle and swastika. The white celluloid grip has several hairline cracks but they are not unsightly and they actually look very similar to the cracks you often find in ivory grips and they give it that nice un-touched aged appearance. The blade is in excellent condition just showing light wear from age but it is still extremely nice and it is etched with the rare makers trade mark of Rudolf Buchel Solingen Merscheid, this is a maker which you very seldom see and i have had very few of there daggers over the years.The matching silver scabbard is in fine condition. Reasonably priced example because of the grip damage, if it had been in perfect condition this would have been considerably more expensive. [Condition: Exc++]

LUFTWAFFE DOUBLE DECAL M35 CAMOFLAGE HELMET.
A very good Luftwaffe double decal helmet which was originally issued with a standard Luftwaffe paint finish but was then converted to a camouflage helmet by adding various shades of brown paint to the original paint finish.The eagle decal is the scarce early style which shows light wear but it is still in remarkably good condition, the other side features the state colours of black white and red and again they are in fine condition (the decals would have been masked when the camouflage paint was added). Attached to the helmet shell is a wire band for attachment of foliage. The interior still retains the original leather liner with faint ink stamp and the chin strap is the scarce early style. The interior of the shell has two large ink stamps, the upper one is stamped in black ink, 8.KOMP, the second stamping is harder to decipher.The shell of the helmet is stamped 5132 & Q66.The helmet is a good large size, about a 58. A very interesting helmet, Luftwaffe camouflaged double decal helmets are very rare. [Condition: Exc++]
