NSDAP LARGE SIZE 30MM GOLD PARTY BADGE BELONGING TO AN SS OFFICER.
This superb 30mm example originally belonged to SS Obersturmfuhrer Ewald Meiwurm and comes complete with large research folder of documents to include an excellent photograph of this SS officer in black Allgemine SS uniform actually wearing this badge. The enamel to the badge is in perfect condition, the oak leaf wreath still retains almost all of it's original gilt finish. The reverse side of the badge features the scarce military style pin and hook, the badge is also stamped GES GESCH in a box, below this is the owners NSDAP membership number 13211. SS Obersturfuhrer Edwald Meiwurm was born in 1887, he served in the German army during WW1 and was awarded several awards to include the Iron cross and wound badge. He joined the NSDAP soon after it was reformed on the 7.8.1925 and received NSDAP membership number 13211, he was also an early member of the SS receiving SS membership number 1889, he was promoted to officer rank of SS Untersturmfuhrer on the 20.4.1934 and was assigned to the 58th SS Standarte (Regiment). On the 9.11.35 he was promoted to SS Obersturmfuhrer. In 1936 he was awarded the SS Honor Ring. I am sure that there is a lot more to discover about this interesting SS officer. Complete with the badge is about 50 photocopy documents concerning this SS officer and also as stated above a very good photograph of the SS Untersturmfuhrer on his wedding day wearing full black SS uniform with his SS dagger and proudly wearing his gold party badge on his tunic.[Condition: Near Mint]
RAD OFFICRS DAGGER BY WUSTHOF WITH LEATHER HANGERS.

The white grip plates are in fine condition and fit very nicely in place. Near mint blade, the obverse side features the RAD motto and the reverse side the makers details, ED WUSTHOF SOLINGEN, above this is etched Ges Gesch and a triangle with the letters, RADJ.

SS 12 YEAR SERVICE MEDAL WITH LETTER OF PROVINANCE FROM REICHSCHANCELLORY.
This is an exceptional example of the SS 12 year long service medal, the medal is formed as a large silver static swastika with SS runes to the center within a wreath. The reverse side of the medal has the inscription, FUR TREUEDIENSTE IN DER SS, the medal retains almost all of it's original silver frosting. Complete with original blue silk ribbon with silver bullion runes, often these ribbons are missing and are now impossible to locate, so this is an especially nice example as it is still remaining. Complete with this SS medal is letter of provenance which is actually written on sheet of Adolf Hitler's Reichchancellory note paper, the letter states, THE ACCOMPANYING NAZI SS MEDAL WAS TAKEN BY THE WRITER FROM ADOLF HITLER'S OFFICE IN THE REICHSCHANCELLORY IN BERLIN ON JULY FOURTH 1945, it is signed by a Charles May of Radio productions (obviously he worked with Allied Radio propaganda). The medal ribbon was originally stapled to the letter and then folded, sealed and then sent home to Mays home. The SS 12 year service medal is considerably rarer than a knights cross, especially when complete with correct SS runic ribbon and in my opinion much more desirable. A superb set. [Condition: Near Mint]

SS 1936 MODEL CHAINED LEADERS DAGGER.
This is an extremely nice early example produced in solid nickel silver from the original production of 1936, latter examples were produced in silver plated base metal and these are far easier to find than these early quality examples, I am often being asked for these early examples but I seldom have any available. The fine quality black ebony grip is in perfect condition with no chips or cracks and it is complete with the SS runic badge and silver eagle. Early nickel silver hilt fittings are in fine condition. The blade is mint, the obverse side features the SS motto and the reverse side is plain with out makers name which is totally correct for the 36 model. The scabbard still retains at least 95% of the original black paint just showing slight age which you would expect, the fittings are produced in matching nickel silver, the center band is decorated with six linked swastikas and held in place by a single metal screw. The matching chain is the so called 2nd type, the links features SS runes and skulls and these still retain most of the original factory blacking, the reverse side of the chain features the SS runic acceptance stamp. This is an extremely nice SS officers dagger coming from a well established collection based in England.[Condition: Exc++]

GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS DAGGER BY EICKHORN WITH RARE SMALL KNOT AND HANGERS.
This is a superb complete set in beautiful condition, the Eickhorn version of the Government Officials dagger is far harder to find than the Alcoso model and it is much higher quality, I probably see at least five Alcoso's to every single Eickhorn. Beautiful highly detailed silver eagle head hilt, all silver platting is still remaining. The screw fitting in the pommel is still very crisp, I have no intention of removing it to inspect the inside of the dagger as the two holes are so easily damaged. The mother of pearl grip plates are in perfect condition. The highly detailed crossguard eagle has the high upturned wings a characteristic of the Eickhorn pattern, the eagle and swastika are highly detailed. The blade features the Eickhorn 1935 / 41 trade mark to the obverse side, the blade has a few minor speckle marks from age but it is still close to near mint condition. The matching silver scabbard is in beautiful condition with no dents or damage and with all platting remaining. The dagger is complete with the very rare Government official's tiny silver knot which has a very thin cord and a tiny acorn, it is in perfect condition and is probably the best example I have owned as they often suffer with fraying but not this example, it is just in superb condition. The hangers are the early style with silver brocade on blue velvet backing, the buckles and clips are in silver metal. A beautiful looking set, it has been some years since I have had an Eickhorn example to offer for sale.[Condition: Near Mint]
