GERMAN POSTAL LEADERS DAGGER BY PAUL WAYERSBERG COMPLETE WITH CHAIN HANGE.
This is an extremely nice example of the rare Postchutze leaders dagger.The grip is in fine condition and it is complete with the silver postal grip insignia, there is one tiny chip out of the side of the grip just under the pommel but it is extremely small and hardly worth mentioning.The silver pommel is in fine condition.The silver Postchutze crossguard is also in exceptional condition with no damage to the black enamel swastikas, the under side of the crossguard is stamped DRP and it is also stamped with the postal issue number 1069, only the more desirable early issue postal daggers have these issue markings, later production example are plain with out stampings.The blade is excellent condition and it is by Paul Wayersberg Solingen who was the only official producer of this model dagger, the blade is complete with the leather buffer pad.The scabbard still retains almost all original black paint and it is fitted with matching silver plated fittings. Complete with silver chain hanger, the spring clip is still in working order and the reverse side is marked DRGM which is always seen on these clips if they are original to the dagger (often they become broken and get replaced with a plain clip as the marked examples are almost impossible to find). An extremely nice example of a very rare dagger. [Condition: Exc++]

HERMANN GORING'S GOLD TIE PIN IN ORIGINAL ISSUE BOX.
This is a very large tie pin which measures approximately 4 inches or 10cm long and it is produced in 14ct gold.The tie pin features a long wide bar and attached to the center of the bar is a shield bearing Hermann Goring's family coat of arms which is then inset with over 80 red stones (they appear to be rubeys but i am not sure if they are).The reverse side of the shield is engraved, 12.1.1938 which is Goring's birthday so this was obviously a birthday gift and it is also stamped with the gold content number 585 which is the German mark for 14ct gold. The tie pin is fitted with original gold safety chain and hook (Goring obviously would not want to lose such a beautiful birthday present).Complete with original leatherette presentation box with the original manufactures details printed to the interior of the lid, Juweller Roller Chemnitze Konigstrasse , this was a very popular high end 1930s German jeweler. Provenance, this gold Herman Goring tie pin was at one time part of the famous Dr Julian Milestone collection of the USA, i purchased this item from him about 25 years ago along with a silver cigarette box which is featured in the archive section of the site, I sold them both to a collector but recently he has decided to let several items go and so i was very happy to own them again. An exceptional item of museum quality. [Condition: Near Mint]
