SUPERB LUFTWAFFE 2nd Pattn BY SMF WITH GILDED SWAZ’s, KNOT AND HANGERS. This is a lovely dagger and complete! By SMF it has 95% of the gilding still on the pommel swastikas and nearly all of the chemically blackened scabbard finish. A tangerine orange grip with ‘springy’ aluminium wire. The original 23cm bullion knot is wrapped around the grip. Scabbard is dent free with nice finish. There are a mint set of de-luxe hangers with 100% of the original gilded finish to the buckles and clips. Perfect velvet backings. Fantastic hangers. The blade is bright nickel plated with the etched SMF logo and a Waffanampt inspection stamp above it. Blade has a couple of very small old fingerprint smudges, taking it off being full mint. Nevertheless thus is a great, complete dagger rig.

MINT NSDAP PARTY ARMBAND WITH RZM LABEL.Part of a few items from a recent house clearance in Hertfordshire, this is a wartime souvenir. An unissued and unworn party type armband. Never been stitched together and has been stored and folded up for 70 years. The colours are as bright as the day it was made! This is an earlier type and is made of red wool backing with applied white circle with black moire swastika. There is one small moth nip to one side of the wool as a result of storage. Stuck to the reverse is the original paper RZM label in mint condition. This was obviously taken from a shop or factory.

RARE ‘PIONEER’ LONG DRESS BAYONET BY WKC.I was lucky enough to be offered three of these unusual examples at the last big fair I attended. The type and form of dress bayonet is commonly referred to as the ‘Pioneer’ type. To date no period reference has been uncovered to actually associate them as such, and it’s much more likely it was just a design variation. It appears in major manufacturers catalogues but just designated with a number. I have shown a page from the exact WKC catalogue.It appears in the WKC one as No.91 and is this EXACT BAYONET!. The design was not popular and didn’t sell well, so has therefore become a rare commodity on the collecting market. This one is in near mint condition throughout. All the nickel plating is 100% with no wear. The blade is stone mint. It is a carbine type blade with a false top edge, very unusual for a long dress bayonet blade. It seems to have had a frog at some time as it’s rubbed the scabbard paint a little. Other than that, this is a perfect bayonet. Personally I love the design, very streamlined! I will supply copy of the page in the WKC catalogue as it's a great reference to go with the bayonet.

PERHAPS THE RAREST MAKER OF HJ KNIVES EP&S WITH MOTTO. This is an example of one of the rarest and most saught after examples of HJ knives. ERNST PACK & SONNE. Before the complete standardisation of HJ knives by the RZM, companies tried slightly different designs to attract customers. HJ knives were made as early as 1934/35 and all had the motto ‘Blut unt Ehre’ etched on the blade until 1938, when it was discontinued. Thus is a really early HJ knife with EP&S ‘extras’. It’s slightly bigger, the pommel is shaped like a birds beak (like a dress bayonet), the grip plates are attached by the EP&S off centre rivets, and are also detachable. The hilt is steel and nickel plated. The blade has no riccasso. Motto etched to one side, reverse has the stamped EP&S trademark and Ges.Gesch (patent pending). This dagger shows some useage wear and blade has some edge sharpening. Motto is very clear and rest of dagger is excellent. In my 40 years of collecting and dealing, thus is only the 3rd one if these I have had, and I have had a LOT of HJ knives. If you collect these by maker or just want a rare and unusual example, don’t hesitate.

SUPERB EICKHORN SHORT SINGLE ETCHED DRESS BAYONET.One of the nicest ‘memory of service time’ bayonets I have had recently. A classic piece and straight from the Eickhorn catalogue pages. It’s complete with the original patent leather frog, which like many of this age, has ‘melted’ into the shape of the bayonets grip! It has also 'melted' onto the reverse of the bayonet hilt, easily cleaned off, but looks interesting in the photos, it's just the black patent leather. Nickel plating on the bayonet is toned but lovely. Grips are perfect. Scabbard paint is virtually 100%. The short carbine nickel plated blade is absolutely beautiful and full mint. The etch has the closed wing Wehrmacht eagles at each end of the ‘service time’ scroll. Reverse has the Eickhorn 1935-1941stamped trademark. A smashing bayonet.

ALL COTTON - BEVO TYPE - PARTY ARMBAND.These were constructed as a one piece thing. The white roundel and black swastika were woven 'into' the red cloth at the factory. A process that's come to be known as 'Bevo'. In good used condition and has clearly been worn. This armband is another manufacturing type, but would have been worn by many different political and para-military organisations. the SA and NSDAP being but two. Machine sewn down the back, slightly grubby. 200% original.
Code: 2908Price: 95.00 GBP
NSDAP ALL WOOL PARTY ARMBAND.A great example of a quality 3 piece, NSDAP armband. Worn by a huge cross section of SA, NSDAP, and other political parties. The main body is red wool construction with applied white circle and then the black swastika. Centre and swastika are made from the ribbed 'moiré' heavy cotton material. Partial remains of the paper RZM label that was stuck inside originally. Armband is in mint condition with no damage and bright colours to all cloth. Has not been issued or worn and the edges not sewn together.

VERY AFFORDABLE ARMY DAGGER BY ALCOSO. I was lucky enough to pick this dagger up on its own recently. No scabbard! However, I had a decent spare scabbard and now they are together as one! It’s a nice dagger with normal ALCOSO attributes. Narrow pommel neck and specific crossguard eagle. Has a nice orange grip with no cracks. Lots of uncleared patina over the fittings. Scabbard has a very slight indentation to it. Blade is in very decent shape. Alcoso trademark of name over the scales. A few minor smudges to the blade but that’s it.
EARLY SS '33 MANS DAGGER BY HERDER WITH TRIPLE HANGER.This is an exceptionally nice, early SS man's dagger with an original 3 piece black hanger, which is also SS marked inside. All early construction, so all metal fittings are nickel. Everything is toned but very clean condition. Black ebony grip has nickel eagle and perfect SS runes button. There is a slight surface age crack in the ebony wood on the reverse of the grip (quite common as it's so brittle). Nickel lower crossguard is unmarked. I have not looked inside the dagger to see what the casting marks are as the dagger seems untouched, so have not undone the tang. Scabbard is a factory painted variety with nickel fittings. Paint is in very good order and apart from age and slight wear, paint is 95% intact. There is a very small dent in the body of the scabbard in the middle on the front. Attached to the scabbard ring is a full black 3 piece hanger, with nickel buckle and nickel clip. The main leather hanger is RZM ink stamped inside etc. The blade on this piece is lovely. As always fits like a glove. Blade has all the polish and crossgraining with no blemishes, nicks etc. The HERDER trademark with crossed keys is etched into the reverse of the blade and runs lengthways along it. The dagger is identical to the one shown in Tom Wittmanns collecting SS daggers, on page.......A VERY nice example of an early period (pre-RZM) SS dagger.
