THIRD REICH K98 LONG DRESS BAYONET BY EICKHORN.Whist still quite a common bayonet to find, this Eickhorn long dress bayonet, is actually in very nice condition. Used for parade and dress purposes. These nickel plated dress bayonets would have looked very smart with the pressed parade uniform. Nickel plated pommel and crossguard are in near perfect condition, with no surface plating missing. Grips are perfect with no cracks. The original red felt buffer is still in the rifle slot. Scabbard is undamaged and has 99% of the original black paint intact. The long nickel plated blade is near mint with a beautiful mirrored surface. The post 1938 Eichhorn trademark is deeply stamped into the reverse riccasso.
A MATCHED SET OF THIRD REICH NAVAL DAGGER HANGERS.A very good pair of hangers for the Third Rich naval dagger. These are cast aluminium with fire gilded surfaces. They have been on a dagger and used during the period. These are a MATCHED set, with the 'two dot' casting marks on the buckles matching each other. Whilst it is not unusual for a dagger to have miss-matched hangers, as one strap can wear out or break. A replacement rarely came from the same source, so was from a different maker (there were dozens of makers!) Both long and short straps are in very good condition with nice blue velvet backings. The long strap has had some period strengthening where it rubs behind the buckle, but it's only stitching. Nice gilding remaining on buckles and snap clips. All clips and chain work perfectly. A nice looking, original set, that would go perfectly with an excellent conditioned dagger. Nice straps are very hard to find now.

NEAR MINT LUFTWAFFE 1st Pattn DAGGER BY HORSTER.This is an all aluminium version and in beautiful condition. All the main aluminium parts, crossguard, pommel, scabbard fittings and chain are finished in a muted off silver colour and have not been polished or cleaned. ALL the gilded swastikas on the pommel and crossguard are in perfect condition and really ‘shine’. The Luftwaffe blue leather used on the grip and scabbard is matching and in great condition, no tears or scuffs. Some small age ‘bumps’ but basically in perfect order. The aluminium triple wire used on the grip looks like it was installed yesterday! Chain clip is marked with OLC maker. The blade is stone mint and is a bright nickel plated type. Horster makers logo is etched into the surface. A really super example.
AN EARLY, ALL NICKEL LUFTWAFFE OFFICERS SWORD WITH HANGER.Perhaps my favourite Third Reich period sword as the design is so distinctive. It incorporates the ‘flying’ aspects of the Luftwaffe but takes its design lead from Teutonic period weapons. Down-swept crissguard, large round pommel. Worn by senior NCO’s and all Officers, this parade sword was introduced around 1934. The early ones, like this, were made of high quality materials brass/nickel etc. Later ones were in a plated alloy and of course all brushed aluminium. Originally they all had an integral crescent leather hanger permanently attached to the two scabbard rings, but sadly with time and wear/degradation, this hanger breaks off and is lost forever. This sword still has the hanger, and the original owner has decided to carve his initials into it, these are 'LM'.
Nickel pommel with brass inset swastikas. Leather bound grip with dual 'springy' wires. Scabbard has blue leather covering with a few scuffs here and there. Bottom chape of the scabbard has some dents etc to the surface and edge. Must have been bashed around a bit in wear. The blade is in very good order, it is nickel plated with a few old finger mark smudges here and there. The maker of this sword is F & A HELBEIG of STEINBACH. Their trademark etc is always quite lightly etched into the blade surface, although this one is quite clear. On some of their other blades, 1st Luftwaffe for instance, it is so lightly etched, you can hardly read it! A very good overall example of a Luftwaffe sword and priced competitively.

SUPERB THIRD REICH RURAL POLICE TSCHAKO BY EREL..These are always a great display item and with the large aluminium police badge on the front, really dominate a collection. They suffer badly from mothing as it seems the grubs love the green wool body. This one is in near perfect condition. As this is for the ‘rural’ Police Gendarmerie, the shako trim is all in brown. Should this have been for a large town or city, then all the trim would be black. I actually think that the brown, rural shakes look better, and this would be a perfect addition to a police collection or similar. The shako has a tan brown top with brown front and rear peaks. The original BROWN chinstrap is in place too! The large pressed aluminium police badge is affixed to the front with threaded screws and retaining nuts. The interior is perfect with near mint leather liner. The makers label is printed to the inside crown. This one is by EREL, perhaps the best and most well known hat and cap maker. Size is a 58 and full details of the shop that sold it ROBERT LUBSTEIN, are on the label.
FANTASTIC HIGH QUALITY SILK NSDAP PENNANT.This party type pennant measures approx. 6" x 28" and is made of the highest quality materials. This in not your standard, two sided mass produced pennant, but beautifully made in red and white silk. The 'hanging edge' for a better word is made in flat GOLD bullion embroidered ribbon. It is stitched along the complete flat edge and also contains 5 flat bullion loops for the rod or pole. At the end of this is the white makers label 'BR FAHNENRICHTER GEGR 1869 KOLN 8'.
(Richter Flags’ was founded in 1869 as the label shows, and was located in the 8th district of Cologne. They are still in existence today.)The pennant is double sided in thick red silk material The central circle containing the swastika is made of silk 'moire' ribbed material, similar to the best quality party armbands, it's then chain stitched several times around the circumference. The black swastika is completely made of black chain stitching which has been laboriously built up to make the body and arms. Hours of work here. I have no idea where this was used, or by whom. Could have easily be a very senior NSDAP car pennant or just used indoors on a pole. It looks to be a car pennant. Whoever it was for was VERY important, as the cost and quality of this flag is amazing. The condition overall is extremely good, slightly grubby with age. One side, along the edges the red silk has worn in a few places, and the white under-material is showing. I have pictured it, but it really does not decry from the overall presentation of this piece. Once again, if only it could talk!!! A rare, high quality piece.

THIRD REICH OFFICERS SILVER BULLION BREAST EAGLE. This is a super example of a high quality Officers silver wire breast eagle, removed from a tunic. In excellent condition with no damage or fraying to the silver wire. Reverse has most of the original dark paper backing. The silver eagle seems to be sewn to a black wool backing, so this would have probably gone on a black Panzer tunic. I can’t think of a different combination. Lovely eagle.

NSDAP-PARTY ARMBAND IN COTTON.A good example of a worn and actually used NSDAP members armband. This is a cotton example with the white circle and black swastika embroidered into the cloth itself ‘bevo’ style. The red cotton armband is a little grubby but no damage or moth. It has been removed from a tunic or shirt and remains open at the reverse. These were worn by MANY organisations, the SA and RAD being perhaps the largest of them.

LUFTWAFFE 2nd. PATTN DAGGER BY SMF. This is a very decent Luftwaffe dagger that was purchased recently directly from a veterans family. Sadly he is no longer with us but the dagger was bought back by their father as a souvenir. Apparently, as the story goes, he ‘liberated’ the dagger from a bomb damaged house towards the end of the war. The house had suffered some shrapnel and fire damage, and I must admit there is some light damage to the pommel neck, which would concur with this story. Have shown a picture of it. Dagger overall looks very nice, with a mid-yellow grip. All 'springy' aluminium wire is present. Nice SMF pommel and crossguard. Scabbard is the nickel plated variety and in very nice order with no dents etc. Blade is beautiful with full nickel plated surface in near mint condition. SMF makers logo etched into the reverse blade along with a stamped tiny Waffanampt stick eagle. Tied in the correct manner around the grip is the original 23cm portapee. The cord is perfect but the ball has become slightly unravelled over the years. Suits the dagger perfectly.
WW2 CZECH M32/v HELMET- RE-ISSUED TO LUFTSCHUTZ. A great Czech pre-WW2 steel helmet. Captured by the Germans after 1939 and re-painted and re-issued to the Luftschutz. Helmet itself is in great original condition and is complete with original liner and chinstrap. The original brown/tan paint is 100% complete inside. When re-issued by the Germans, the exterior was painted dark blue and a Luftschutz decal was placed on the front. Many examples of these were never painted Luftshutz blue and the decal was just placed over the tan/beige paint. 60% of the original blue paint is still present with the tan/brown paint showing through. There is no rust or damage. The large Luftschutz decal is about 75% intact with the swastika very clear. Interior has original lining and is ink stamped M36......
A great piece of WW2 history.
