These pages display a number of the rare items that I have had the pleasure of selling. To view more details and a larger photograph please click on the thumbnail picture.
SA Dagger by HACO BERLIN
SA Dagger by HACO BERLIN , nice to find a non Solingen maker. The grip on this dagger has a fabulous bold grain and still retains its lacquer finish. Nickle silver fittings all in good order , bottom mount ball a little flat on base. Blade retains a lot of crossgraining and motto and maker mark are crisp and dark. Scabbard has 95% annodising and around 90% lacquer , two creases as can be seen in picture . A nice early dagger.
' Mein Kampf ' Wedding Presentation copy
This is a wedding copy that is presented by the town mayor to couples who were wed under his authority. It is presented with the best wishes of the city or town. This one is to Hartberger and Graf ( an interesting name to research possibly ?) married in May 1943 at Laa an der Thaya in Austria . This edition of Mein Kampf is in absolutely beautiful condition. It has the leather spine with gold-embossed letters and the gold embossed town emblem to the cover. This book is in superb order throughout.
Excellent Luftwaffe Sword by Holler
Luftwaffe Sword by Holler , this one is , as they say , out of the woodwork !!!. Nickle Silver fittings show some wear , but looks like it hasn't been cleaned for 60 years ! Grip leather is excellent , only minor rubs , scabbard leather also excellent with just a few marks on one edge. Blade is really superb ( 28 inches ) with crisp maker mark , no pitting or tarnish and the whole thing comes complete with original hanger. These are the best looking of all Third Reich swords in my opinion and the rising prices confirm this view !
Luftwaffe 2nd pattern Dagger,maker Alcoso
Luftwaffe 2nd pattern by Alcoso , ricasso area is etched with the last trademark used by Alcoso. This is the sideways type, which incorporates the scales and has the letters, “AWS”, showing this to be mid to late war. Excellent blade , loads of crossgraining and a nice airplane grey scabbard and fittings. They cannot stay this cheap much longer !!
