EARLY SS DAGGER AND HANGER - VERY AFFORDABLE. This is a real ‘33 SS mans dagger by HERDER. Complete with a vertical hanger. All nickel fittings and black painted scabbard. However, at some time this dagger has obviously been kept in a damp environment. This has affected it in two ways. Whist the is no material missing the ebony grip has several hairline cracks running its length on both sides. The grip is fine and is in one complete piece, but it has obviously swollen and shrunk again. SS runes button is perfect, as is the nickel grip eagle. Both crossguard are solid nickel. Lower one is stamped with the Roman numeral ‘I’. The blade is entirely complete, perhaps slightly blunt, but the surface is covered with small pitting spots. There is nothing deep. The blade has been cleaned and polished many years ago and actually has a decent finish to it. The SS motto is still quite deep and clear. The HERDER trademark is clear and deep on the reverse. Scabbard is damage and dent free. Has a good coating of black paint. Bottom chape is undamaged. There is a leather vertical hanger attached to the upper scabbbard ring. Overall this is a good looking dagger, and when SS daggers are over TWICE this price,it represents very good value.

EARLY SS 1933 MANS DAGGER BY KLAAS - WITH VERTICAL HANGER.This was one of the nicer daggers purchased from the collection last year. This has only been in one collection as it was purchased directly from the family in Exeter by the previous owner. A classic early SS piece, made of high quality materials and perfectly put together. All solid nickel fittings have developed a nice yellow patina. Typically the top pommel nut has been tightened or removed with a pair of pliers and it's left a few marks around the edge. So common with vet acquired pieces, where no one knew how to take them apart, and a thin spanner nut was not the first thing that came to mind! Really not a problem, but I thought I would mention it. The solid ebony grip has no shrinkage problems and fits perfectly. There are two small slivers missing from the reverse upper crossguard. Have been gone a long time and are only small. Again a real problem with ebony as it's very hard and quite fragile. One decent 'bash' when being carried and it chips. The enamel SS button has turned slightly, but no damage. The solid nickel grip eagle is perfectly seated. It has a very small 'dent' to the left of the eagles head and breast. Looks as though it's been tapped with something hard. Nothing else! Lower crossguard has the Roman 'I' stamped into the reverse. Scabbard is a lovely 'blued' or 'anodised' example and retains all of the surface finish and is totally original. Attached to the upper scabbard ring is the original vertical hanger used with this dagger. Has solid nickel clip etc which is completely plain. I have NOT removed the hanger, as it's obvious it's sat hugging the dagger for 70+ years. If the next owner wishes to do so, then that's up to them! The blade on this example is a lovely thing, and apart from the usual 'in/out' runner marks is in mint condition with all of the original crossgrain polish etc. The KLAAS trademark and the SS motto retain all of the blackening to the letters etc. A VERY nice SS dagger, with huge amounts of character, just how I like them!

LATER PERIOD RZM '33 SS DAGGER BY more unusual maker,CARL SPITZER.Whilst the material used to make daggers in the later period changed, the quality of construction etc didn't. Unfortunately the alloy materials used have not lasted so well after nearly 80 years, so it's good to find a RZM dagger, either SS or SA in excellent condition. This is a SS man's dagger produced by Carl Spitzer in 1939. The blade has a mine of information as it has the RZM circle, SS runes and the RZM contract number as well as the standard RZM code. The reverse riccasso is etched M7/91 and then underneath RZM contract number 1221/39/SS. The blade is very bright and clean, it has a few stain spots where the internal scabbard springs have rested against the blade and make marks. No sharpening and a nice tip. The motto letters are deeply etched into the surface and retain their background blackening. The crossguards are made of the later grey alloy and have lost a little of the nickel plating. The black wood grip is fine, all fits perfectly and the SS enamel runes button is fine. The grip eagle is perfectly set into the wood and is aluminium, which is standard for most RZM pieces. Scabbard is really nice, with 100% plating on both fittings and no lifting at all. The scabbard body is undamaged and retains 100% of the original factory black paint. There is a little spidering to the surface, but typical for old paint finishes. Overall a very presentable SS dagger and priced accordingly.
EARLY, RARE MAKER SA DAGGER WITH VERTICAL HANGER.A good example of a nice early SA dagger by a more unusual maker, that of CARL KLOOS-Solingen-Landwehr.(Landwehr is a smaller town very near Solingen) Whilst this rates as a rare maker 8/10, I have also never had one of these before. Solid nickel fittings have taken on a very yellow patina, both on the hilt and the scabbard. The grip in beautiful and is made of a nice 'ginger' coloured hardwood. The SA button is perfect, and the solid nickel eagle has it's own covering of greenish patina! Lower crossguard has the Gau mark Wf for Westfalen which was in the western part of Germany. Attached to the scabbard and through the upper ring is a brown leather vertical hanger with oval cross strap buckle. Scabbard is nice and straight with no damage and has a full covering of the brown 'anodising'. The lower nickel ball is slightly squashed. The blade is very clean and presentable, a nice bright surface with no sharpening or damage. Alles fur Deutchland motto is crisp with still some grey colour in the lettering. The makers name etc is etched into the reverse riccasso. Good looking piece.

EARLY HITLER YOUTH KNIFE WITH MOTTO-VOOS.This is a very nice example of an early HJ dagger. Made by Emil Voos, the blade has no riccasso, indicating a 1933/34 early dagger. Made of all heavyweight, quality materials. Steel based hilt etc. The dagger feels very solid in the hand. The original nicel plating to th hilt and crossguard remains intact. The grip plates are probably early ebony wood rather than celluloid, but I am not sure. The HJ diamond is perfectly fitted into the grip space and remains uncleaned. A nice steel scabbard shows some proper usage wear to the paint, but still retains 75% of the original covering. The dark brown leatherwork for the integral belt loop and hilt cross strap are in good supple condition and the popper works well. The blade has the leather washer, and considering it's nearly 85 years old is in near perfect condition. Steel is extremely bright and clean and the HJ motto of 'Blut und Ehre' is still deep and crisp. The reverse of the blade is stamped with the Emil Voos name E.V.S. and the trademark of a serpent around a log stump. A HJ dagger with great character.
VERY GOOD EXAMPLE OF SS VERTICAL HANGER. Used on SS ‘33 daggers to carry them in a vertical position which stops them swinging around, or getting in the way when marching etc. Solid nickel unmarked snap clip with black leather ‘coffin’ shaped body. Cross strap and buckle in good order just showing a little wear. Nice, very small makers mark running down the middle strap with tiny RZM stamp.This is SS 48/34 and indicates that the leather producer was Erich Brocksieper of Ludenscheid. Ideal hanger for an early SS 33 dagger.
RARE SPECIALIST LUFTSCHUTZ/WERKSCHUTZ ARMBAND. Part of an large armband collection, this is a Luftschutz armband for the ‘MESSENGER’. In sky blue rayon/cotton, similar to the RLB types, this has a white ‘BEVO’ letter M woven into the fabric. Presumably worn by a Luftschutz member acting as a messenger during air raids etc, when other forms of communication were unavailable. In near perfect condition, also has a little bevo 'No.5' woven into the seam on the reverse. Most unusual armband.
Code: 3079Price: 75.00 GBP
THIN/NARROW PRINTED NSDAP ARMBAND.Whilst these are full length, they are only about 2" wide. One piece printed armband with stitched/hemmed edges. This one has never been used or sewn together. Apparently used as a very 'ad hoc' armband and probably disposable. So used for temporary occasions, sports day judges, party days, could even have been free 'give-aways' as they are quite cheaply made. A good example of a period type.
THIRD REICH 'BEVO' ARMBAND FOR THE DEUTCHES ROTES KREUZ.This is the classic type of armband seen in nearly all of the pictures of war-time German nurses or medical personnel. Worn with a uniform on the left arm.This is a white cotton/linen base with a central red cross in 'bevo' cotton. In a circle around this are the 'German Red Cross' lettering. A little grubby, has been used. Sewn together as issued.

A NEAR PERFECT EXAMPLE OF LUFTSCHUTZ GLADIATOR HELMET.Whilst this helmet seems to have been used, it has stayed in virtually untouched condition. There are a few age spots to the metal shell, but it still retains 99% of the original blue paint and 100% of the large decal on the front. Given the ‘Gladiator’ name as it looks very similar to Roman ‘gladiator’ helmet worn in the Coluseum etc. Designed for Luftschutz personnel as protection. Was not designed for battle and stopping bullets, just air-raid use. It has the original leather liner and original chinstrap. It also has the original labels stuck on the inside neck. These roughly translate thus...….""sale permitted/according to paragraph 8 of the Air Raid Protection law/highest price 8 Reichsmarks". Size 56. A very good example.
