EARLY 'ZEITEN' (model1734) EICKHORN FIELD MARSHALL SERIES SWORD.

There were 9 different types of officers swords produced by the Eickhorn company in this series, and each were given the name of a famous military General name from Germany's past. This is the 'ZEITEN' version and is one of the rarer models to find. It's a beautifully designed sword with a large, bold panther head with red glass eyes. Beautifully cast in sold brass, you can see all of the detail of the cats face and mane. Backstrap and knuckle bow are all cast with oakleaves and foliage. The crossguard features a closed wing eagle surrounded by a shield. Everything is early brass and still has 85% of the original fire gilding over the top. Looks fantastic! Black celluloid grip with triple aluminium wire wrap. The original officers green leather portepee is tied correctly in place.Standard steel scabbard has 90% of the original black paint, with just one very small dent to the edge near the bottom. This is a very long sword for a very tall soldier! Overall measures 40 ", with a 34" blade. Blade is in mint condition with perfect nickel plating ,which is like a mirror. The reverse langet has the 1937-41 Eickhorn squirrel stamped into the surface. Lovely sword!

MUCH RARER-RAD BEVO INSIGNIA FOR SWIMMING TRUNKS!

I actually can't remember having one of these before, although I have seen the brown swimming trunks/shorts for sale, with this emblem on. They thought of everything! This is the smaller RAD badge in 'bevo' cotton silks, but half the size of the sports vest insignia. I have shown the two together for size comparison. Been removed from the trunks, in excellent condition and an ideal display size. Nice little badge!

TOTALLY ORIGINAL AND UNTOUCHED HJ/DJ BLACK SKI CAP WITH DIAMOND.

This is a super used example, and only if it could talk! The black ski cap was introduced around 1935. This was the winter service cap for both HJ and DJ boys. Similar to the army Bergmutz, black coarse wool with visor and a turn up that buckled at the front. This one has it's ORIGINAL enamel HJ diamond badge that's 'embedded' into the cloth seam with age. There is a small piece of enamel missing from the top part of the badge, but its gone black with age and time. Wool body of the cap shows no damage or moth nips etc. However, the inside grey/blue silk type lining has worn and torn in a few places, exposing the inside suffing and material. The celluloid diamond is still present. The inner front leather peak has the boys initial pierced through it 'JN'. Great cap, and pretty rare as an untouched piece.

THIRD REICH NAVY DAGGER KNOT ALREADY IN TIE!

For those of you who resist in trying to tie the complicated knot onto a navy dagger, here is the answer. One already tied, aged and ready to slide onto your dagger and look as though it’s been there for ever!!! I bought this from Germany along with some other spares. No idea if it’s history, but it has obviously been on a dagger for a long time and then removed carefully. The silver bullion has ‘settled’ into a perfect tie. It has a little wear to the bullion thread on the swing area, where it comes out of the knot. If you have a dagger that has a little wear, or originally DID have a knot, but that’s disappeared, then this is a fantastic addition. Rest of knot is perfect and set in the tie. No other wear spots.

BEAUTIFUL AND IMPRESSIVE IMPERIAL GERMAN VERY LONG FIRE OFFICERS DRESS DAGGER.

A really beautiful and actually dainty edged weapon. Worn by senior Fire Dept Officers in Imperial Germany. They continued to wear these into the Third Reich period, but they were much shorter and more 'chunky'. Its an impressive overall 24" long, which is longer than he 55cm DLV dagger! Would have been very difficult to wear without getting in the way, I imagine. This is in lovely condition. Has silvered fittings throughout. Flame type ball pommel. Grip is probably bone or ebony wood, with a single twisted wire wrap. Silvered crossguard with large quillion ends shaped like clover leaves. As far as I can ascertain, this is an ALCOSO produced piece, as they had the large cloverleaf crossguard ends and ‘flame’ pommel.
(blade is unmarked) The scabbard is in beautiful black leather and has as seam running up the back, with two accent lines on the front. It's in mint condition, with NO bends or damage. Quite amazing preservation. There are twin carrying rings, and I think this would have had black leather hangers up to the wearers belt. The blade is superb! Stiletto thin and etched both sides with fire related scenes, ladders, hoses and helmets. A fantastic edged weapon, in virtually mint condition for something that well over 100 years old!

RED CROSS SAWBACK HEWER WITH ORIGINAL FROG AND SILVER/BLUE KNOT.

This is a very nice example of the dagger worn by enlisted Red Cross men. It is one of the last few daggers from the collection I purchased last year. The collector in question was a very good customer of mine going back many years, and he always purchased the very best items. This is no exception, and has all of the dull nickel type of plating seen on the hilts and scabbards of these daggers. The scabbard has 98% of the original black paint. It has the issued black frog, unique to these daggers. These is also a blue and silver portepee wrapped around the frog, which I think was purchased separately. Perfect grips, nice clear symbol on the crossguard. Blade is stunning and along with the razor sharp sawback edge, is in stone mint condition. Red Cross daggers are never marked (both officers and mans) but the sawback versions usually have GES. GESCHUTZ (Patt.Pending) stamped into the blade under the crossguard lozenge. A nice Red Cross piece.

LUFTWAFFE 2nd DAGGER WITH WHITE GRIP, KNOT AND HANGERS.

I like the white grip varieties, they look very clean and smart. For some reason, most I have encountered have plain blades with no makers marks. This is typical of that. No idea why these exist, but they do across the dagger range, army daggers, etc quite often have these plain blades. Does not detract as far as I am concerned, as they are original pieces. Nice airplane grey fittings and a nickel plated scabbard. A good combination. Off white, cream grip is celluloid over wood I think. Has a single twisted wire wrap, and no damage whatsoever. A nice rayon-type 23cm knot is beautifully tied around the grip. Scabbard is dent free. A little of the nickel plating is worn on one scabbard edge, but the rest is fine. Blade is stone mint with all crossgrain polish. It has its original straps, which have the grey metal standard fittings and clips. Perfect blue straps with bullion lines and perfect grey/blue velvet backings. A nice example.

THIRD REICH POLICE BAYONET WITH FROG AND KNOT.

A very nice complete piece here. It has it's original black frog and what also looks to be the original police portepee as it has moulded to the frog. All leather parts, scabbard and frog, are black leather. So following the colour tradition of the German police (brown for rural, black for city/towns), this was carried by a city policeman. Normal police bayonet construction, heavily nickel plated hilt and crossguard displaying eagles head beak and feathers, with oak leaf crossguard. Nice stag grips with aluminium police oval badge on the grip. Evidence of the shortening and adjusting done by the armourers to change this from a Weimar clamshell, to the slightly shorter Third Reich type. Nice black leather scabbard with no issues. There is a very nice police type black leather frog and this is also stamped and dated on the reverse, 1938. The leather police portepee shows a little age (80+ years old!!) but is complete and tied properly around the frog. Blade is heavily nickel plated, in very good condition, and is deeply stamped with the very early oval Eickhorn trademark. (used from around 1934/35). This bayonet has no issue numbers. If it ever had any, they were ground off the crossguard, the scabbard never had any. A very good example. Nice bayonet.

LUFTWAFFE DAGGER HANGERS WITH GILT WASH STILL PRESENT.

These are a really nice set of Luftwaffe dagger hangers, and are known as a 'de-luxe' set. All the hardware is cast with oakleaves, to include the snap clips and the DRGM marked belt hanger clip. In really nice condition, these hanger retain 85%+ of the original gilt wash over the grey metal fittings.In my experience, and I have handled 100's of these, the de-luxe set are usually gilded. I therefore don't think they are specifically for 'Generals' as there are just too many around. It was how they are finished, and perhaps it was just a few companies who finished them this way. Fabric straps are in excellent shape, bullion stripes with blue backing. The reverse are Luftwaffe blue velvet and again in great shape. These have been used, but are in near mint condition.
