PRUSSIAN/THIRD REICH SHORT CLAMSHELL POLICE BAYONET
I have had a few very nice police bayonets recently and this is anither type. As I have mentioned before, collecting the many variation of bayonets used by the German Police, is a fascinating subject,and a great collection can be made on just thus subject alone. This is a smaller, probably Officers clamshell bayonet from around 1932-33. It carries the pre-Third Reich Prussian service nickel badge on the grip. Thus was rapidly changed in 1933-34 to include a swastika on the eagles breast and it carried lightening bolts in one claw. After that the police badge was changed completely to the oval oakleaves type with eagle and swaz in the center. So this is quite a unique bayonet in the time period. The police continued to carry the earlier bayonets throughout the Third Reich period, as proven in period photographs as well as the addition of Third Reich knots etc (as this one has). Bayonet is in super condition with heavily nickel silvered fittings. Great detail to the hilt casting and clamshell details. Nice thin and dainty stag grips with the Prussian 6 sided badge. Scabbard fitting in perfect condition with nice black leather body. The ORIGINAL smaller and thinner black leather frog is present and this has a Third Reich era red/silver knot tied around it. Blade is nickel plated and in excellent, mirror like finish. Leather blade buffer present. Riccasso is deeply stamped with makerí PAUL WEYERSBERG & CO. SOLINGEN.
An exceeding nice EARLY police sidearm.

FANTASTIC BULLION SS OFFICERS SWORD KNOT.
Perhaps one if the most sort after accessories, and unfortunately expensive now as they are Ďas rare as hens teethí as the saying goes! This is the long silver bullion, flat weave sword knot for the SS dagen. Sometimes found on the Police Officers sword too, as they were under the control of the SS. Large bullion ball with the SS runes interwoven into the stem in a black circle. Platted slide above. Wide bullion straps with twin black lines running along each edge. Base if bullion ball is finished with a bit of the strapping inserted inside. Knot is in perfect condition with no rubbing or wear discernible. Shows some age, but thatís about it. An absolutely superb knot in every way.

RLB OFFICER 2nd Pattn DAGGER WITH IT'S ORIGINAL STRAPS.
I have been lucky enough to buy one of these earlier in the year, in virtually the same condition and by the same maker. They are a great looking dagger, with huge 'art deco' design overtones. This is a pretty uncleaned and untouched dagger, with patina to all the nickel silver fittings. Pommel crossguard and the scabbard fittings are all blackened with the patina. The leather covering on these daggers is actually very dark blue, nearly black. The covering to the grip and to the scabbard remains in very good, near perfect condition, with just very minor age bumps and scrapes. The RLB sunburst badge on the grip has ALL of the black enamel on the swastika, with no chipping! The blade on this piece is marked with the WEYERSBURG maker. Blade overall is in very good condition indeed, with 90% of the crossgrain polish present. There is a very small finger smudge on one side and a slightly larger one on the reverse. I have not attempted to polish these out, but I am sure with a little work they will almost disappear. Blade blue leather buffer is in place. Accompanying the dagger are the original set of blue/black leather hangers. Again the metal fittings have aged with patina, whilst the leather itself has remained remarkably intact. They were slightly dry when I got them, and all I have done is apply a little clear melatonian leather polish. Has worked a treat and the straps look fantastic and match the colour of the dagger scabbard leather. RLB hangers are quite unique in the fact they have no buckle holes, and the straps just stay in place with the buckles by friction. A really nice, complete RLB Officers rig. I purchased it reasonably so I have passed this on in the price asked.

EDGED WEAPONS OF THE THIRD REICH BY FJ STEPHENS.
Fred is one of the few British authors of dagger books. This was his best volume and is in colour and black and white. Quite a used copy, but this has been out of print for YEARS! Another useful reference book as he covers some unusual daggers etc. Someone has cut the head out of Goering on the back cover! (why?) otherwise all is fine.

ONE OF THE FIRST DAGGER REFERENCE BOOKS FROM 1972.
Published in America in 1972 by Delta Press, this 24 page booklet was one of the first attempts to identify and catalogue Third Reich edged weapons for collectors. Hand drawn black and white images of all the basic daggers and swords. It shows you how far we have come, but this booklet is now collectible in its own right.

BATTLEFIELD PICK-UP M40 SINGLE DECAL HELMET WITH SEVERE DAMAGE.
If only this helmet could speak, what a story it could tell! It seems to be a 'battlefield pick-up' helmet but is actually in remarkable condition. It has suffered extreme blast impact which has broken and cracked the crown in several places, but no metal is missing. It's just been blown open like an egg! Most of the original paint is there, but the surface is covered in light rust. The single decal is 65% intact and very visible, it's 'melted' into the surface of the helmet but the swastika is very visible. The original liner is present but quite fragile. Most of the chinstrap is also there. A fantastic piece of history here, and those who collect battlefield damaged helmets, this could be for you!

A LOVELY, NEAR PERFECT EXAMPLE OF 2nd PATTN. LUFTWAFFE DAGGER BY EICKHORN.
Whilst Luftwaffe daggers are still relatively common to find, ones in beautiful condition are very hard to source. This one is a classic Eickhorn with the 'heart shaped' pommel. It has a nice lemon yellow grip with the springy wire wrap. The scabbard is fantastic with ALL of the 'airplane grey' finish present to the surface. Nearly mint. The blade is a mint example with full nickel plating and the post 1938 Eickhorn trademark is etched into the blade surface. A REALLY nice example of this dagger.

MINIATURE ALCOSO LUFTWAFFE DAGGER.
I continue to champion miniature daggers, and the ones made by ALCOSO are some of the best around. Nearly 9" overall, these are made in exquisite details and perfectly replicate their bigger brothers. Made for gifts, letter openers, or advertising give-aways, they were also utilised by the Alcoso salesmen as examples of their work. This is a 2nd Pattn Luftwaffe miniature with orange grip. Tiny twisted grip wire. There is a very small chip in the grip at the ferrell. Lovely detailed crossguard. Perfect scabbard. Nice plated blade with ALCOSO trademark etched onto it.

A RARE SET OF 'DE-LUXE' LAND CUSTOMS HANGERS.
I can honestly say I cannot remember owning or having a set of these unique hangers, either on their own with a dagger. Land customs hangers 99% of the time have simple alloy clips and a very plain 'box' type top fitting. These are a SUPER set with 'de-luxe' type fittings, identical to the high quality army hangers you see sometimes. The straps are of course silver bullion with twin green stripes running down each side. The reverse are covered in deep green velvet. The buckles and slides are aluminium and have cast LAUREL leaves on them (not oakleaves as army ones have). At the top of the straps they have metal tabs which are then riveted to the top fitting. This allows the straps to 'swing' side to side, with the movement of the dagger. The bottom clips are the 'push-up' high quality types. The hangers have been properly used and have carried a dagger for some considerable time, as there is a little swing wear to the top fittings on the edges and the laurel leaf buckles have moulded to the shape of the straps and become slightly oval. So nice to see actual evidence of real wear. The hangers are in beautiful condition overall and would perfectly suit a lovely Customs dagger. As I said, never owned a set of these!!
