MOST UNUSUAL THIRD REICH 'FIRE POLICE' OFFICERS DRESS DAGGER WITH ORIGINAL LEATHER HANGING STRAPS.These was a POLICE service connected with the Third Reich Fire service, as there are picture and badges to prove it. The Fire Officers of Germany were in existence in Imperial times and obviously in the Third Reich. Their officers wore this type of dress dagger, whilst the Firemen etc wore the dress bayonet with the 'S' shaped crossguard. This Fire Officers dress dagger has a Police badge pinned to the grip. I have had one like this before, many years ago. In my opinion definitely a period addition as it's pinned through the grip and you cannot remove the pommel, as the blade tang is peened over the top. The dagger is quite short, about the length of a navy dagger, and even rarer, it has a set of ORIGINAL Third Reich Fire Officers dagger hangers!! These hangers are FAR rarer than the dagger itself, and are only the second set I have ever seen. They ae nearly identical to the Hitler Youth Leaders hangers, but the buckles and snap clip are pebbled not smooth. Top clip marked with DRGM and RZM details. Dagger has black leather grip with twisted wire. Nickel plated crossguard and pommel. Crossguard has fire helmet each side. Scabbard is black leather with twin wide fittings and rings, all nickel plated. The blade is a plated stiletto type with deeply etched fire scenes on each side, ladders, hoses etc etc. The blade is devoid of a maker. Tied around the grip is a post-way silver bullion knot with red flecks. Looks very good on it, so have left it that way. The complete ensemble looks fantastic, a rare combination indeed.

SHORT POLICE OFFICERS DRESS ALLOY BAYONET BY ALCOSO.These are really quite difficult to find, and whilst the long Police bayonets are still quite available, to find the short 'officers' type is now difficult. These always seem to have the same configuration, the bayonet itself has alloy or aluminium fittings whilst the scabbard has nickel plated steel fittings. Bayonet is not slotted for a rifle (never are) nice alloy hilt and crossguard heavily cast with oakleaves etc. Nice smaller sized stag grips. Alloy police eagle is affixed to the obverse grip. Scabbard is standard black leather, with some age to it, but completely sound. Standard type police upper and lower fittings stapled to the leather. Blade is in wonderful condition. Heavily nickel plated with short, single edged blade. ALCOSO trademark is deeply stamped into reverse riccasso. Add a thinner type black/brown frog and police bayonet knot and this will be a great example of the Police Officers parade/dress bayonet.

EARLY HITLER YOUTH KNIFE WITH MOTTO BY TIGER!Always a popular maker as the trademark is very appealing. This is an early (pre 1938) Hitler Youth boys knife with the etched motto 'Blut Und Ehre' on the blade. This is a very nice dagger , but as most of these were, it was used by the original owner. Blade therefore has a few surface scratches and the edge has been slightly sharpened. Heavy steel hilt fittings which are nickel plated are in good condition. The chequered grip plates are fine and the enamel HJ diamond is deeply inset into the grip. Scabbard retins virtually all of the original black paint and the brown leather belt loop and cross strap are in very good order and popper works properly. Blade is in very good condition. There is no riccasso as it's an early production. The reverse has a deeply stamped trademark of the TIGER company. A very decent example of a classic, early HJ dagger.

IDEAL SMALL SIZED RIECHSKRIEGS FLAG MADE IN OCCUPIED HOLLAND!This is a great display size measuring only 80 x 135cm (4.5' x 2.5'). The quality and condition are superb. Made of a high quality cotton/linen, with NO holes or damage to the cloth anywhere I can see. Colours are vivid and bright, as it seems to have been stored well in a drawer. Reinforced corners and multi-stitched 8 times along the flying edge. There is no halyard (rope) in the sleeve as in my opinion this was never used. Was liberated from stores or similar, hence the condition. Cream rope pocket is stamped with the size and 'Kr' for Kreigsflag. At the opposite end is the full manufacturers details from the company in Holland. A great display item, in wonderful condition.
EARLY DLV MARKED FLYERS KNIFE (GLIDER) ('BALLOON-MAN')A very nice example of the very early Flyers knife as used by the DLV. Deutche Luft Verband.....basically 'volunteer air force'. The DLV were formed in the early 1930's as a way of sidestepping the Versailles Treaty after WW1. Pilots were trained in secret using gliders. This is from that early period as it ONLY has the small DLV symbol stamped into the scabbard throat. Dagger is of early all nickel construction. HAs nice patina over the surfaces, but there is even evidence of the silver frosting and lacquer on the lower grip ring. Crossguard enamel inset swastikas are perfect with no chips or damage. Dark blue leather on both the grip and the scabbard are really fine, with no wear or edges lifting. The scabbard has a few age bumps and a few tiny surface nicks, but very minor. Permanently attached to the scabbard ring is the brown leather hanging strap with nickel belt clip. It also has the original belt loop and D ring attached. Blade is very nice indeed with all the crossgraining and no sharpening. Gerbruder Heller has a wonderful trademark of a man holding a bunch of balloons!! Really clear etch. A very nice blade indeed. Lower scabbard fitting has obviously been dropped at some time as the very bottom of the ball is dented. Other than that this is a wonderful example of the DLV dagger.

HISTORICALLY IMPORTANT VERY LONG NSDAP BUILDING DRAPE.Firstly this building drape is HUGE, perhaps the biggest flag I have owned. It measures approximately 26' long by 5' wide.
Was designed to hang from a vertical pole, and would have been at a rally or hanging from a building. Any newsreels of a Third Reich parade through a city or town, and you would have seen these. It's of high quality material, thick serge cotton and it's double sided. All edges are double seamed and the bottom corners are all triple over stitched to stop fraying. At the top is a 4" hem pocket where it would have slipped on a pole. It was bought back as a souvenir by a Colonel in the US army 142nd Infantry Division. His name was James L. Minor. How do I know this? Well he has kindly inked in his name etc in one of the bottom corners!! He won a Silver Star for gallantry and is quite researchable on the correct web pages. The banner is not mint by any stretch of the imagination and bears the scars of storage and war. There are several tears and holes throughout the fabric, along with dirt and oil stains. However, none are critical to the overall condition, and in my opinion really tell a story about how this banner was taken and treated. A really historical souvenir
SUPER, EARLY HJ DAGGER WITH MOTTO.Always a very popular dagger with collectors, and to be honest, finding NICE ones with a motto is proving harder and harder to do. This is a great example that straddled the period before the RZM took over completely. This dagger is made PRIOR to 1938, so has the motto 'Blut und Ehre', but also has the RZM number as well as the makers name. G.FELIX- GLORIAWERKE-SOLINGEN.....RZM M7/28. interesting to see that the makers name is deeply stamped into the blade, but the RZM number is etched onto the surface, so probably done at different times. Old stock blade, then coming into the RZM control. Obverse has a very deep and clear motto. Dagger has nice nickel plated fittings, very good leather and cross strap popper is fine. Chequered grips are perfect and the enamel HJ diamond is deeply set into the grip. Scabbard body is the more unusual 'blued steel' finish with no paint to rub off or chip. Very nice HJ dagger. Rarer maker too.
EARLY HJ DAGGER WITH MOTTO BY HENCKELS.A proper example of a decent HJ boys knife with the early blade. This is a nice dagger but has been used by the HJ member. Heavy steel fittings with near perfect nickel plating. Nice chequered grips with deeply inset HJ diamond. Scabbard has a near full covering of original black paint. The dark brown/black leather strap and cross loop are in good, supple condition, and the popper works properly. The blade is very bright and clean. The 'Blut und Ehre' motto is etched into the obverse of the blade. It's a little feint, but easily readable. This dagger has been looked after an loved! So polishing the blade was part of it's life! The reverse of the blade is deeply stamped with the Henckels name and trademark of the 'twins'. Nice HJ dagger.

EXTREMELY RARE EICKHORN DE-LUXE HUNTING ASSOCIATION CUTLASS.In my 40 years of collecting/dealing I have only had one other of these beautiful daggers. They are extremely rare. Shown in the Eickhorn sales catalogue, they were expensive at the time, so were probably not purchased in great quantity. Quite a short Hunting cutlass, but extremely high quality in every way. The grip is a large hand chosen piece of thick staghorn, with a de-luxe heavily engraved pommel cap and an acorn as the pommel nut. The Hunting Association symbol is in silver and affixed to the middle of the grip. The crossguard consists of an upturned and downturned deer's hoof in heavily plated antique silver. Below that is a heavily engraved/cast clamshell depicting a field bird, a grouse/pheasant or similar. All heavily antiqued silvered. The scabbard is a beautiful masterpiece. Consisting of a dark green leather body with heavily silvered fittings. The top fitting is plain with a acorn lug. This part has obviously had a frog protecting it for many years (sadly missing) as the silvered finish is in mint condition, with the protective lacquer still in place, so the silvered finish has not tarnished! The lower scabbard fitting is heavily engraved with a forest scene and a grazing stag in the centre. The blade is triple etched, and very deeply done. Has high quality scenes of forest animals and hunters running down each side. The etch is in mint condition and is in a deep grey/black colour. The spine is etched with oakleaves. Deeply STAMPED into the blade riccasso in the post 1938 Eickhorn squirrel. A truly beautiful dagger. All metal parts are finished in an antique silver look, with blackening in the background to bring out the detail.
STANDARD LUFTWAFFE DAGGER HANGERS.A great set of standard, non de-luxe Luftwaffe hangers. Grey metal fittings, perfect bullion fronts and perfect velvet backings. Ideal for a very nice dagger.No damage, no wear.
