Firemans Dress Bayonet by TIGER
Firemans Dress Bayonet , complete with frog and knot ( the knot was attached when I got it but dont know if its the correct one ). Original paint to nice straight scabbard , excellent plating , Excellent blade apart from a few very small patches , seen in pics, crisp makers logo both sides of blade. Perfect grips. A nice original piece , sensibly priced.
Red Cross ( DRK ) Leaders Dagger
Red Cross Leaders Dagger , excellent blade with crossgraining.Nice grip with only one tiny hairline at bottom of grip as shown. Nice fittings and pommel screw. Grip has very slight movement but I will not tighten it to avoid any damage to grip. This is a nice unmessed with , hard to find dagger. ON ITS WAY TO SUNNY ITALY !
WW1 Thornton Pickard Aerial Camera
Thornton Pickard Aerial Camera . WW1 , the first camera designed for aerial photography from the old Biplanes. Shaped to resemble the Lewis machine gun. I believe it would have had a round magazine on the top similar to an actual gun, though this magazine held photographic plates. An extremely interesting WW1 item. Postage on this heavy item is £20 in the UK.
NSKK Dagger by Pack
NSKK Dagger by E.P & S. The grip is absolutely beautiful and retains an amazing deep wood shine/luster. The nickel silver grip eagle is MINT with no wear (a beauty) and the SA runic is complete with no enamel damage. The scabbard's black painted finish is excellent , a few rubs but no crazing. Ball end is complete and only has a minor knock (about a 1mm). Blade could do with a clean but hasn't been retipped or sharpened , and a fair amount of crossgraining can still be seen. just wartime wear. Maker marked E.P & S Solingen. All solid nickel silver mounts are in great condition , top scabbard mount missing one screw. Grip fit to crossguards etc is tight and the blade fits snugly into the scabbard with a satisfying "click" This came direct from a private owner , never in collection.
