Nice, honest example of a later SA Honor dagger. While the early damascus type is certainly prettier, this plain blade RZM version is actually far scarcer as Victor Lutze was well known to give these only to high ranking and notable personalities while Ernst Rohm was quite liberal in giving out Honor Daggers. This is a nice, honest example. Crossguards are embellished with oakleaves and the lower is internally marked H. The nut is made special for this piece with a funnel shaped bottom...

Gorgeous example of a rare dagger. N.P.E.A. student dagger with bottom crossguard marked N.58 . This is an early number and the "N" indicates the school to be Naumburg/Saale. Students had the option of engraving the school on the upper crossguard and this one is indeed engraved N.P.E.A. Naumburg/Saale. I believe the upper engravings were done upon graduation. The blade is an extremely nice example with very minor age wear and cross graining still showing...

A very impressive piece. Eagle trophy presentation reads: "Our esteemed company commander SS Haupsturmfuhrer Zahn in memory of the 4th (MG) Company of the 8th SS TK Regiment, Lublin on January 30, 1941". This rank is basically equivalent to a captain which is right in line with being a company commander. Apparantly this fellow was the commander of a machine gun of the 8 SS Totenkopf regiment...

Absolutely lovely Imperial German war veteran flag or standard or banner. Whatever it is it is gorgeous and shows the manufacturing techniques of a bygone time. The flag has a nice, solid cotton base and sandwiched by a silk layer on each side. As is usually the case with such flags the silk has been damaged. It just doesn't take a very long period of neglect to ruin silk. Luckily the embroidery and bullion is anchored to the cotton so no details or trim work is lost...

Excellent mid-war complete uniform for army artillery leutnant, right down to the suspenders and boots. Because of the detailed photography necessary I am splitting this into two separate listings. The fabric throughout is perfect, fresh and undamaged. This uniform was well cared for, possibly right off the rack as the tailor tag is still in the pocket (In French) and the label sewn in the inside pocket has the same tailor emblem (JB)...

This is certainly one of those "wow" items. Original "HJ Wache des Gauleiters" or Hitler Youth Gauleiter Security Service cuff title. A bit rumpled towards the ends but that is because I am a purist and don't alter anything in the least. This cuff title along with a little over a hundred photographs and some other personal items were "liberated" from the office of Gustav Adolf Scheel who, among quite a few other job titles, was Gauleiter of the Salzberg area...

Japanese Type 95 Sight, used on the famous Aichi D3A “VAL” Dive Bomber. Mounted on the front of the aircraft, just forward of the cockpit windscreen, and used to line up the target for dive-bombing. Another version of the Type-95 sight was manufactured with a cross hair reticule for use as a machine gun sight on fighter aircraft. A groove inside the front of the tube allowed the cross hair reticule to be mounted when the sight was used as a machine gun sight. The front of the sight was prote...

This SS marked ordnance sword by Carl Eickhorn is a special item and has been in my collection for a good number of years. There is little doubt that the SS/I markings are original to the sword. The obvious assumption that the "I" would indicate Leibstandarte A.H. is supported by the very limited number of "armed" SS units at the time these ordnance swords were in use. I would think it safe to assume this is was used in early parade formations and probably shows up in some of those interesting e...

Extremely rare Spanish Cross Next of Kin medal as awarded to family of those German Condor Legion "Volunteers" killed in that conflict. Records show that 315 were awarded which is about half the number of Knights Crosses with Oak Leaves awarded. This came out of an advanced collection in Wilmington DE and it looks like even the ribbon is correct. The eagles are all (Correctly) separately affixed. This would be much more expensive on other sites. Really a centerpiece quality medal for most any co...

Yes, you read the title correctly. This came from an advanced collection. I am not in a hurry to sell this and mostly listed this to share it with some of my regular customers that I consider friends. The bottom text reads "Spare parts for boiling water pump". I believe this was off of a parts locker or cabinet meant for boiler repair but I guess this could also be for a water pump; Hard to tell with my imperfect grasp of the German language. At any rate, I doubt that after many years of searchi...

Luftwaffe Double Decal M35 with solid camouflage remaining. Colors are a nice, deep autumn or late summer and have a look that leaves no doubts. Maker and size marked Q64. Soldier's name is on the liner and initials painted on the skirt. One liner tongue has an old repair but very subtly done. Top notch helmet with a great combat look that would fit well in any collection.

This lovely, unique Civil War relic is out of my collection. Carved by a confedrate veteran in remembrance of the battle of First Bull Run, this pipe has every spare piece of space carved with something clever. The pipe bowl is in the shape of a bull's head with the underlined word "RUN" right between his eyes. Above this is a soaring eagle. Below this word is a southern gentleman leading Abraham Lincoln by a chain. The southerner's name looks to be "Sowarel"; I have no idea who this is and I ma...

Very tastefully done sterling silver Bezique card set, probably from second quarter of 20th century. Case is done with very detailed repousse work featuring a multitude of cherubs with a floral swag pattern. Top of box is monogrammed "SSA". Hallmark on base of box is unknown (to us.) Top and side compartments are purple lined and include four sets of cards; Two have the same SSA initials and there are two that have U.S. IRS import stamps for playing cards (one is detached from the pack). Other i...

Very rare, hard to find tunic. Text book four button wool construction with upward sloping pockets. In great condition throughout. The only negative I find is that the stamp below the color is not very clear. This type of sleeve insignia was introduced in 1943. With no border on the Org Todt armband this was for EM or NCO; I would assume NCO with the red tress around the color. Great example of a very rare item.

Lovely steel Jaeger Zu Pferde pickelhaube. These mounted light infantry were similar to dragoner units and the helmet is patterned after cuirassier spiked helmets. The blued steel is in line with 1915 regulations and this example is made by C.E. Juncker and dated 1916. All metal parts are period and appear to be original to the helmet. Light age wear as shown in attached photographs. I do believe the chinstrap is a reproduction. A lovely helmet for those who like Imperial spiked helmets and a ha...

Beautiful Imperial German Hussar sword. Inset into the grip is the skull and crossed bones representing the elite Hussars. It is often forgotten that before WWI this symbol was the proud symbol of Germany's elite fighting force, namely the heavy cavalry know as Hussars. Detail on this is superb. Handsome, silver lion head handle is really a nice one. Lion's flowing mane trails to the backstrap. Red ruby eyes go very well with the toned silver of the handle. Langet shows crossed sabers representi...

This is a very special piece with a rich history. I have had this in my personal collection for many years now. It started out as an American Revolution horseman saber. A nearly identical sword is pictured on page 164 of George C Neumann's important book "Swords & Blad3es of the American Revolution" (third edition, October 1991). During the Civil War a Confederate soldier had it either cut down or remounted to a bowie knife. Its current blade length is just under 17 inches. It is in uncleaned co...
