THIRD REICH KRIEGSMARINE 'U-BOAT' BRASS BULKHEAD CLOCK.These are wonderful pieces of memorabilia, historical and useful. Always described as a 'U-BOAT' clock, there were certainly fitted to and used on U-boats, but were also on most other Third Reich naval vessels. Originally painted the colour of the bulkhead it was fitted to (usually black) this is now back to the base metal of brass. This one has a silver finished face with black hands. It has a longer black minute sweep hand. Minimal wear to the silver face and hands, but this clock has been used and looks great. There is the Third Rich eagle and swastika embossed on the face with the naval 'M' underneath. The opposite side has the numbers N11387. This clock has ordinary numbers around the edge, rather than Roman numerals as seen on some of the earlier ones. All brass fittings are in great condition, the face locks shut and opens properly. I had the clock mechanism cleaned and serviced and it runs properly for 3-4 days. No guarantee on the workings though! It's a souvenir piece! These clocks have 3 brass 'tabs' which are separate pieces and are fitted through the edge and then screwed or bolted to the bulkhead. This clock has lost 2 or them, but the top one is still present, so can hang on the wall if desired. A wonderful piece!! Last one of these sold in auction last week for £1600 + 20% commission!!!
NEAR PERFECT ARMY OFFICERS DAGGER WITH HANGERS & KNOT.I purchased this privately, and has not been in a collection before. It is a really nice, white gripped dagger with its original knot and hangers. I would imagine that this is a later produced piece as the fittings are all grey metal. There is evidence of a silver flash coat on the scabbard body. All fittings are in perfect condition and it looks as though the dagger has been little used, if ever. Grip is cream celluloid has no chips, damage, it looks new. It is a plaster filler variety. Wrapped around the grip is a very nice bullion 42cm knot. It was not completely on the dagger when I bought it, had been undone or left off by the family. Scabbard is in near mint condition, with no damage, no dents or scratches. Blade is unmarked (very common with later pieces) it is in mint condition, with needle sharp tip and full crossgrain polish. Hangers are in wonderful condition, with lightweight silver fittings. Bullion fronts and perfect green velvet backings. A REALLY nice, complete dagger in near perfect condition.
LUFTWAFFE 2nd Pattn. DAGGER WITH STRAPS AND KNOT BY VERY RARE MAKER. 'ZEITLER'.Purchased with the army dagger just listed, came from the same family. However, this dagger has seen use and has been worn properly. BUT this dagger is made by an extremely rare maker, that of ZEITLER - WIEN (Vienna). This is only the second dagger I have ever had by this maker. I had another 2nd Luftwaffe dagger by them earlier this year, and I have seen a 1st. Pattn Luftwaffe by them, but little else. ZEITLER was a small maker based in Vienna, Austria and I think they were a specialist jeweller. VERY unusual to find a dagger maker outside Solingen, especially in Austria. Dagger has mainly grey fittings, crossguard and pommel. Scabbard was original nickel or silver plated, but most of this has worn off. Grip is a nice orange colour with single twisted wire wrap. Wrapped around the grip is the original 23cm bullion portapee. There is slight wear to the swing area, but it's in great condition otherwise. Blade is a polished steel type and in Exc+ condition. The ZEITLER name etc is stamped on the reverse of the blade. Accompanying the dagger are the original set of de-luxe hangers. These have the cast oakleaves in the snap clips and the top hanger clip. The grey/blue bullion fronts are fine, but the reverse cloth velvet has suffered quite a bit. Seems to have got damp at some time, dried up and cracked. A completely original, as found complete dagger, with a great RARE maker.
A SUPERB NAVAL DAGGER BY EICKHORN PURCHASED COMPLETE WITH ORIGINAL HANGERS, KNOT AND UNDERBELT!!!A 'straight out of the woodwork' naval rig. This is how it was bought back as a souvenir after the war, was apparently taken from the original naval officer in Kiel. Certainly looks that way. Dagger has defiantly been used an worn, but is in superb collectable condition. Dagger itself retains a lot of the original fire guilding over the brass base. This is less apparent on the lower part of the scabbard as it has rubbed off during wear. The very bottom of the scabbard is slightly misshapen, flatter, as it has obviously been caught in wear etc. Very common with 'worn' navy daggers as the brass scabbard is so soft. It is not noticeable though. Pommel and crossguard retain nearly 100% of the fire gilding. White celluloid over wood grip is PERFECT with brass twisted wire wrap. Expertly tied around the grip, pommel and crossguard is the original 42cm bullion knot. It is in the standard naval 'tie', and has been ion this dagger from new, approx. 80+ years. These is some slight 'swing' wear to the knot as it comes out of the tie. The blade has the EICKHORN post 1938 squirrel stamped to the reverse riccasso. The blade is in MINT condition, with 100% grey etch finish to the naval scenes. Super blade. With this dagger are the original Third Reich era hangers. These have gilded aluminium fittings, buckles, clips etc. Buckles are marked with the same casting marks to the reverse of 6 little dots. Black moire fabric fronts are perfect as is the black velvet reverse. Great hangers. It also has the original blue cloth underbelt. This was under the tunic or coat, and the dagger and hangers hug from this is there was no 'outer belt'. A REALLY nice combination, complete rig. Never been in a collection before, and a super bit of German naval history.

LATER BULLION SS SWORD OR BAYONET KNOT.These knots remain a little it of a mystery as there does not seem to be period reference to them. I have bought and sold them over the years in various condition. Some that have had 70+ years of wear and patina on them, some that have oxidised with age, and some that are in near perfect condition. I believe them to be original pieces, but produced after the beautiful SS sword knot with runes on the stem. These knots have a long bullion strap with twin black lines. The stem is just plain silver and the top of the ball is black with the lower part black and silver alternating. This knot shows some age and has been on a dagger or sword at some time.

BROWN FABRIC UNDERBELT FOR SA DAGGER ETC?Whilst I have had several of the underbelts for the navy dagger, which are usually blue, I don't often get a brown one. More likely associated with the SA or NSKK as they had brown uniforms. It also only has one sliding 'D' attachment, so that would suit a SA or NSKK dagger. Anyway, a decent thing whatever service it was used for. Worn underneath a tunic or coat, this was used to support a dagger, and the strap would have gone through a pocket flap and then clipped onto this belt. Brown cloth belt with leather ends. Steel buckle and leather sliding loop with 'D' ring.

A NICELY AGED/TONED THIRD REICH BULLION PARADE DRESS BELT WITH BUCKLE. These are very impressive items. All the services had a parade dress belt and most were silver bullion of some design. The navy one consists of a wide woven silver bullion belt with two slides. It has an interwoven dark blue/black design( the Imperial navy one is red/blact etc). This is a lovely example but as there is a very hight silver content, it has toned a little with age, giving it a nice 'antique' look. The navy buckle and keeper are gilded alloy metal, and have toned down too. The buckle is stamped 110 on the reverse?. The bullion belt is backed with a dark blue inner lining. Hidden in the belt are two brass foldaway eyelets, to which the navy dagger hangers clip onto. Very clever. A very pleasing looking belt that would display perfectly with a navy collection/dagger.

A SUPERB SET OF THIRD REICH NAVY HANGERS WITH UNDER-BELT.These are an absolutely lovely 100% MATCHING hangers for the Third Reich naval dagger. They have been used but not a lot and show minimum wear. They are the period GILDED ALUMINIUM buckles and clips. Buckles have the 'star' casting mark on the reverse and all of the aluminium clips are of the same type. The fire gilding is 95% intact on all surfaces, with just the slightest of wear to the high spots. The dark blue moire fabric fronts are in great condition, with complete surfaces etc. The reverse has dark blue velvet backing. All complete. Accompanying the hangers, is the original 'underbelt'. This was worn under a tunic or jacket and the dagger hangers clipped onto this through the pocket etc.
A REALLY nice set and if you have a nice navy dagger that needs a set of hangers, these are the set for you. Really hard to find good, complete original hangers.
LONG NSDAP/PARTY BANNER-PROBABLY FOR BUILDING.This is one of the longer drapes or flags, probably hung or flown from a building and meant to be hung and flown vertically. It measures approx. 4'.6" wide and 10' long! It is very well made with high quality wool body and double sides roundel and swaz. There is a nice heavy duty reinforced cotton hem at one end. The colours have remained very bright and clear as this has been folded up in a drawer for most of it's life. It came back as a veterans souvenir from a family in Norfolk. There are some dirt stains to the bottom of the flag, perhaps were it was dirty on the ground when hanging? There is also a couple of minor 'mouse nips' that I discovered. These are not moth, as there is still the fabric there, just bitten by a little rodents teeth at some time.Flag is a part of history and was certainly used at the time. In extremely good condition apart from the grubby bottom edge and small holes.
AS FOUND, SS OFFICERS SWORD KNOT, GREAT CHARACTER!Several months ago I found a similar SS Officers sword knot to this one, a very used example that had been stored in a cigarette box for years. As a result of that, someone saw the listing and has found me another!! Unfortunately, he had seen the prices of these and saw what I sold the last one for (too cheaply apparently!), anyway there are such rare knots to find, I had to buy this one too. A 200% real, used and been there bullion SS Officers parade sword knot with large ball and SS runes on the stem. This one, like the last one, has been on a sword for a long time and then removed. Why? Don't know. It needs to go on a like conditioned SS sword, one that's not mint, but is nicely used and worn. This knot will compliment it perfectly. The long flat bullion strap has the twin black lines running down each side. The interwoven slide is present above the stem. The bullion wire stem contains the black SS runes inside a black circle. This is 'woven' into the silver bullion itself, as all real ones are (not added afterwards!). The stem is in great condition. The large bullion ball is oval not round with bullion wire running around and down the acorn shape. The bottom 'inset' of the ball is finished with a matching piece of flat bullion strap with the twin lines. Where this has been tied onto a sword, it shows quite a lot of wear to the bullion strap at the 'swing' and 'rub' points. There are a few cracks and small breaks to the edges, and it shows where it's been worn. In my opinion this really adds to the originality and history. If tied carefully to a sword of similar condition or vintage, it will add enormously to it. Nothing worse than adding a new looking knot to an older sword covered with patina. Anyway, a very rare and great looking artefact. They DO NOT turn up like this.
