STONE MINT/UNUSED THIRD REICH NAVY MOIRE DRESS BELT.. I like these belts as they display really well with navy daggers and navy items. This is a stunning, mint conditioned blue moiré 'day dress' officers and senior midshipman belt. All the fittings are gilded aluminium, so this dates it 100% for the Third Reich period. The two piece buckle, the two lion's head slides are as the day they were made! Brilliant bright gild with no wear at all. The same is said for the belt itself. Perfect moiré front with deep blue velvet backing. Not an ounce or use or wear! I purchased this from a private source in Wilhelmshaven Germany (sea port) and I was told it came from a house clearance, and was just in a cabinet rolled up. Seems to have been like that for 75+ years. An opportunity to add this to a mint set of gilded aluminium hangers if you have them. Not to be upgraded.

CLASSIC HUNTING CUTLASS BY WKC-TRIPLE ETCHED BLADE.This is a really nice Hunting Cutlass with stag horn grip by WKC. All brass fittings with a gilt wash covering. Three acorns on the grip. Has good black leather scabbard with clean gilded brass fittings. Blade is some 15” long approx. And is triple etched. Hunting and forestry scenes decorate each side, whilst the spine is deeply etched with the retailers name in Berlin. A very high quality piece and used right through the Third Reich period as the WKC trademark dates it from early 1930’s.

LUFTWAFFE 2nd.Pattn DAGGER WITH ORANGE GRIP, HANGERS AND KNOT.A good looking dagger this and complete with all the accessories making it a full, complete 'rig'. Dagger has complete grey burnished fittings of the same colour. Pommel, crossguard and scabbard all match. It has a very nice orange celluloid grip with single twisted wire wrap. There is a 23cm bullion knot tied around the grip. Scabbard is the same grey colour and seems to be dent and damage free. There are a nice set of Luftwaffe hanging straps with the dagger. Standard aluminium fittings with nice bullion fronts and velvet backing. Blade has some slight finger marks in a couple of places and is completely plain, with no maker mark. Army and Luftwaffe daggers are often encountered with plain blades, and as yet there is no real theory as to why this happened. Specific orders to a uniform retailer, who requested 'no maker' blades is quite believable.

EARLY SA WITH 'LAZY MAN' ROHM INSCRIPTION WITH SHORT HANGER.With the murder of Ernst Rohm in July 1934, Hitler ordered all reference to him to be removed or destroyed. This included the inscription on the 'honour' SA, NSKK and SS daggers that were issued/purchased. A very few were hidden away and over the years these have surfaced, they are highly collected, very rare and hence expensive. The other daggers we see fit into 3 categories. 'erased' 'partially erased' and this 'lazy man' type. The inscription was either removed professionally where you can hardly see it was ever there, or done by the owner either very well or terribly crudely. The 'lazy man' removal, is always a very half-hearted attempt to follow the rules and get rid of the inscription. This is a perfect example of that. The Rohm inscription on the reverse of the blade has basically just been lightly ground off along the spine of the blade. You can easily read the lettering above and below the spine edge and the Ernst Rohm signature is virtually intact!! However, the grinding has caught the makers mark and removed all of it apart from the lower word SOLINGEN. I have handled many 100's of SA daggers, so I recognise the lettering as being from the Ernst Pack & Sonne firm. They seemed to make the lion's share of Rohm inscription daggers. Obverse of the blade is virtually mint, with all crossgraining etc., but the energetic grinding process on the reverse has caught the edges here and there, so you can see a few lines and scratches. The grip of the dagger is a lovely smooth brown hardwood, the SA button and nickel eagle are perfect. There is a tiny chip from the wood on the edge of the lower crossguard, but done a long time ago and very minor. All the solid nickel fittings have a nice yellow patina. Crossguard is stamped with the Gau mark 'No' which is for Nordsee. The scabbard is in very good order indeed. It still has 100% of the brown anodised coppery colour finish and all of the shellac lacquer. However, the lacquer has 'bubbled' slightly with heat and age and is rough to the touch. Attached to the upper scabbard ring is a single leather hanger. It consists of the normal short leather hanger with snap clip. Lower scabbard bottom fitting has a slightly dented ball.A very nice SA dagger with HUGE history to tell. A fine example of a 'lazy man' erased Rohm dagger.

EARLY SA WITH SEMI-ERASED ROHM (SIGNATURE ONLY) AND HANGER.This is a very nice example of an early SA dagger, but has the added BONUS that this was a presented ROHM dagger. It is in lovely condition with the solid nickel parts all toned to a dull yellow. Has NOT been cleaned or polished. Made by ERNST PACK & SONNE, the blade is in lovely condition, with all crossgraining and background burnish to the motto. The reverse of course has the ' In cordial friendship Ernst Rohm' etch, but the signature has been quite crudely scratched off. The EP&S logo is still very clear. After July 1934 Hitler ordered any reference to Rohm everywhere, was to be destroyed/removed. This included the dedications on the 1000's of 'Rohm daggers', both SA and NSKK, that had been issued. Most dagger blades had the complete dedication completely removed and re-polished. Some just removed the signature and some variations between both!! It was a serious offence to keep them, so it is still quite amazing that full Rohm blades were hidden away and exist to this day. THIS dagger has a very decent scabbard with full brown anodising still present. The lacquer has reacted with the atmosphere and become rough to the touch. Has a very nice EP&S grip with perfect SA button and eagle. No chips or splits. There is a short brown leather hanger with solid nickel clip. An excellent example of a erased Rohm (signature only) dagger.

A SET OF UNUSUAL LUFTWAFFE DAGGER HANGERS.Dagger hangers are almost another collecting subject in their own right. There are dozens of interesting variations of the standard army and Luftwaffe hangers. Different clips, leather tops, metal swing tops etc etc. There is also quite a variation in the materials used. Usually bullion fronts with velvet backings, however there are some additional types and this set of Luftwaffe hangers are one of those. They have the standard plain grey metal top belt clip but with de-luxe push in bottom clips. The fabric of the hangers is most interesting and 100% original as I have had a set like this before. They are made of a grey/blue canvas material, with the correct bullion stripes running up, but the backing again is woven cloth/canvas. They look really nice and a most pleasant variation.

POLICE OFFICERS PARADE SWORD BY KREBS!I have not had a decent police sword for a while and in the same month I have bought two of them BOTH BY THE SAME MAKER! so if you are looking for one of each, here is a great opportunity to have a pair Officers and NCO's by the same maker!! This is a very nice example, with nickel plated fittings in great condition. Officers swords are slightly different as they have grip wire and a bigger, better police badge on the grip. (they are officers after all!) The scabbard also has a separate nickel plated chape to the bottom, whereas the NCO's have an integral steel drag. Grip is nice with much original black paint. Police eagle badge is a coppery colour as it's lost the silver plating they all once had. Scabbard throat and underneath crossguard have the stamped SS inspection marks and this sword has it's original white leather blade buffer. Blade is in near perfect condition and has the matt type finish. The Krebs logo of the lobster is deeply stamped into the reverse riccasso. As in the previous description Krebs are renown for they workmanship and make some of the best SS swords around. The Police ones are of a similar quality. Scabbard has original paint and is damage free. The sword measures 37.5 " overall and the lovely blade is 31 " long.
POLICE NCO'S PARADE SWORD + KNOT BY KREBS.This is an untouched and uncleaned Police NCO's parade sword by the very desirable maker PETER DAN. KREBS. Their trademark logo is a lobster in a square and they are mostly famous for making SS Officers (and NCO's) swords too. The quality of their workmanship is superb, and they made the Police swords in the same manner as they made the SS ones. As with the SS swords, this Police one has the SS inspection stamping on the scabbard throat and also under the crossguard. This has quite a grubby nickel plated hilt, but if desired would clean up well. There is an original Police portepee/knot tied around the hilt, and it looks to have been there for a very long time. The grip is dark wood, painted black and a lot of the original paint is still present. NCO's swords usually have a flat aluminium police eagle inset deeply into the grip. This type of sword does not have grip wire. Scabbard has it's original black paint and has no damage or bends. The blade is in lovely condition, has the usual matt type finish. No discernible damage. Overall the sword is 37 " long, and the blade measures 29". A decent, used example of a Police sword with a very nice maker.
MINIATURE IMPERIAL GERMAN 1898 CADET NAVY DAGGER.These were one of the few miniature daggers produced in the Imperial period. A few bayonets, and some swords, but mainly NAVY DAGGERS. This has some good detail and the brass hilt, grip and pommel are cast in solid brass. I imagine that when brand new, the grip would have been painted white, but this has worn off long ago. A faithful miniature reproduction of a full sized piece, it features anchors cast into the crossguard and the ends have a capstan finish, like the big one! The pommel is also highly detailed with an Imperial crown finish, and you can see the alternating panels with a cross and Imperial eagle. Tiny detail! All brass scabbard has lightning bolt design and the scabbard bands are twisted rope design. One scabbard ring has broken away from the body, but the 'ring' is still present and is attached to the brass chain. Blade is needle sharp and some 5" long and in great condition, with no bends or damage. It still has the little felt buffer in place between the crossguard and the scabbard throat. A really pretty miniature, and one of many types you can collect. Would look fantastic with it's full sized counterpart or with an Imperial navy collection.

MINIATURE IMPERIAL GERMAN SOUVENIR SWORD.This is a lovely little Imperial German sword that was produced as part of the celebrations for Bismarck’s 80th Birthday. Obviously sold as a souvenir letter opener at the time. Just over 7” long, made without a scabbard. Has gilded highlights to the hilt and both sides of the blade. One side is the Commemoration of Bismarck’s birthday in 1895.. The other side has the saying ‘ Germans fear no one but God’. Very pretty miniature sword and ideal to go with an Imperial display.
