BLACK GRIP ARMY DAGGER. This unusual variation of an army dagger was purchased privately and has not been in a collection before, unfortunately the condition is fairly low. All late war gray metal hilt fitting have lost most of there original silver finish but the detail to the crossguard eagle and swastika is still very good. The unusual and non standard part of this dagger is the grip which is black leather with a wire wrap, similar to the 1st model Railway grip but as stated above this grip is black leather rather than black celluloid which is what Railways grips are manufactured from.The scabbard is a matching late war type which has also lost most of the silver finish.The blade is plain with out a makers name and it shows a fair amount of wear, some light pitting and some rust marks just under the crossguard. I have no idea why this dagger has a leather grip, it could be a very late war army variation or a dagger assembled from parts in 1945/46 for returning allied soldiers but what ever it is it is certainly very interesting and different, the grip is actually very similar to customs or water police. Bargain price, the parts are probably worth more than my asking price. [Condition: Exc+]

Captain Paul Richard Stevens was born in Lancashire in 1887, at age 14 in 1901 he was attending the Naval School at Greenwich and presumably this is when he received this dagger, by 1911 he was a fully commissioned Naval Lieutenant, in 1937 he is shown as holding the rank of Naval Commander. After his retirement from the Royal Navy he lived near Daventry in Northamptonshire until his death in 1958.This is just a short history as i am sure that much more can be discovered about this naval officer and he would certainly make an interesting research project.

ENGLISH SILVER MILITARY INKWELL BY THE IMPORTANT SILVERSMITH OMAR RAMSDEN. This superb & very large decorative inkwell was designed and produced in the early 20th century by the renowned and highly collectable arts & crafts silversmith, Omar Ramsden.The arts and crafts movement was very popular and influential in England from the 1870s until the late 1930s,the principle of the movement was to encourage the production of unique hand made goods rather than identical machine made factory products. Circular silver Standish in a decorative hammered style with a raised edge with eight raised ridges that probably simulate rivets and which would be ideal for holding pens, the center of the inkwell almost grows naturally into a tall mushroom form, the lid is hinged and when opened features a glass inkwell. The lid of the well is beautifully engraved with large highly detailed Regimental badge, a Ram holding a flag surmounted by the Kings crown and engraved around the outer edge, THE QUEENS 22ND LONDON REGIMENT. The outer raised border of the inkwell between the stylized rivets is engraved, I WAS WROUGHT FOR CAPTAIN K.E.PREVITE BY COMMAND OF THE OFFICERS 22ND REGIMENT (THE QUEENS) ON THE OCCASION OF HIS MARRAGE 30TH JAN 1930.The edge of the ink well is stamped with the silver hallmark OR (Omar Ramsden) and the hall marks for London 1926.From research I have managed to discover one other almost identical inkwell also of the Queens Regiment which was in the Campbell (Omar Ramsden) silver collection, that inkwell was produced in the same year as the one I am offering for sale but it was presented on a different date to a different officer. It is believed that the Regiment purchased a very small quantity of these inkwells (probably no moor than 6 or 8) from Omar Ramsden in the mid 1920s for presentation for officers marriages and perhaps retirements, Ramsden probably retained the inkwells until they were required and then the inscription would have been applied at his workshop. Silver produced by Omar Ramsden is highly sort after and collectable this also has the added interest of being an inkwell with a military connection. [Condition: Mint]

SA GROUND ROHM HONOR DAGGER, PERSONALISED WITH MATCHING ISSUE NUMBERS. This is an interesting example of an SA 33 model dagger having matching issue numbers stamped onto the obverse side of the cross guard and also the top scabbard fitting, normally these numbers are found on the reverse side, it is extra nice to find them on the obverse side as obviously this is better for display. All early nickel silver fittings, the reverse side of the lower crossguard is stamped with Group mark Nm, the obverse side is stamped with SA unit number and issue number, 15 / 26026. The brown wooden grip is in perfect condition and it is inset with SA insignia and silver eagle, from the style of the grip is possible to ascertain that the maker is Pack as the grip for this maker is very identifiable. Excellent condition blade, the obverse side features the SA motto and the reverse side has been heavily ground to remove the offending Rohm dedication to include most of the TM, although part of the town name still remains. Brown anodized scabbard shows some wear and is complete with matching nickel silver fittings, the upper obverse side of the top fittings is deeply stamped with the matching SA numbers 15 / 26026. A very nice example of a Rohm dagger and being especially nice being personalized. [Condition: Exc+]
SA HIGH LEADERS HONOR DAGGER BELONGING TO SA OBERGRUPENFUHRER FRANZ BOCK. It has been a number of years sine I have had one of these very rare SA honor daggers to offer for sale and this is a superb chained example being the 1938 model with an Eickhorn maker marked damascuse blade, this dagger was recently obtained direct from the Bock family in Germany. This dagger is especially interesting to collectors as it features the 1935 / 41 Eickhorn trade mark, this trade mark is recorded on SA honor daggers but mostly they will feature the 1933 / 35 trade mark or the late 1941 pattern, the 1935 / 1941 trade marked is extremely rare to find on an honor dagger. The fine quality silver crossguards are the honor pattern which are decorated with oak leaves and acorns to the obverse and reverse sides, the upper crossguard is internally stamped 49 and the lower crossguard is stamped 89, the numbers do not match but this is normal for an honor dagger, on most original honor daggers the numbers will not match, only on rare occasions will you find matching numbers. The brown wooden grip is a typical late 1930's Eickhorn example but featuring a very fine grain, it is inset with the silver eagle and SA insignia. The blade is produced in beautiful damascuse steel and the quality and condition is outstanding, the obverse side features the SA motto with oak leaf and acorn sprig to each end of the motto, the gilding to the motto and oak leaves is remarkable with almost 100% still remaining (this is original gilding, it has not been re-gilded as most SA honor's have), the obverse side of the blade features the rarely seen Eickhorn Solingen 1935 / 41 squirrel trade mark, this fine blade would rate near mint. The tang of the blade is lightly stamped on the obverse side with the capital letter D for damascuse which is the correct marking for the latter produced honor dagger blade, early produced example's will feature the full title Damast, the tang probably also originally featured the HCA billet clamp mark, but if so this was ground of during the fitment of the grip at the factory. It is interesting to note that there is a fine quality brown leather buffer pad fitted to the blade, I have only ever seen this a couple of times on honor daggers but it is a nice extra feature to see, if you lift the pad there is a deep age pattination around it against the lower crossguard. The scabbard features the original brown leather covering, the leather is applied to the scabbards in two parts and is cut around the fittings which is the correct method for an SA honor dagger scabbard, it has a fine brown grain and it is totally original (most honor daggers have had there leather covering replaced), it shows a little wear mostly to the reverse side but all the leather is remaining and it is still in beautiful condition. The matching silver scabbard mounts are the honor pattern with grooved fittings to the obverse and reverse sides, the center mount features the swivel type fitting not the early riveted ramped type which is seen on the more common early type chained honor daggers. The chained hanger features links decorated with swastikas, five upper links and seven lower links, the belt clip is decorated with the large SA insignia, the clip is still in working order, the reverse side of the chain is plain with out makers mark or RZM code marking which is totally correct for a chained honor dagger of this period of production, only the latter chained honor daggers with the Eickhorn 1941 trade mark will have an RZM marked chain, the earlier examples are always plain with out any maker markings at all. This dagger probably dates to 1939-1940 period, the earliest chained honor daggers date from 1938 and they used up existing old stock damascuse blades featuring the Eickhorn 1933 / 35 trade mark, when these were exhausted new blades were produced featuring the new up to date 1935 / 41 trade mark and the new type and more simplified scabbard center mount swivel fitting, which is the model which I have. There are basically three types / periods of chained SA honor daggers, the most commonest are those that feature the post 1941 Eickhorn trade mark and the RZM marked chain hanger, the damascuse blade although made of original damasuse steel has a more factory made look to it than the earlier types, after that the second commonest are those that feature the 1933 / 35 trade mark with riveted and ramped scabbard fittings and a non maker marked chain, but the rarest with out doubt is this example which features the 1935 / 41 Eickhorn trade mark and the new type swivel ring scabbard fittings and with an unmarked chain. When I originally purchased this dagger although I knew it belonged to SA Obergrupenfuhrer Franz Bock, I thought it was unmarked as most honor daggers are with out the owners details or name, it was only after returning home and carefully examining the throat of the top scabbard mount and cleaning of some old dried oil and dirt that I noticed the very small but nicely engraved owners initials FB ( the F is very clear the B is more age worn now), this then conclusively confirms that the original owner of this SA chained high leaders honor dagger was SA General Franz Bock. Franz Bock was born on the 28th of June 1905 in Kaltenbrunn, he attended Volksschule, his early professional carrier was as a cashier in a bank and then working in the tobacco and ceramic industry. Bock joined the NSDAP and the SA in 1922 making him a very early member, he took part in the Munich Putsch with Hitler on the 9.11.1923 and was awarded the Blood Order medal for his involvement in this historical event (Blood Order medal number 791). Bock rejoined the party and the SA when it was reformed in 1925, NSDAP number 33014. His carrier and promotion in the SA was rapid and impressive, from 1927 -1932 he was the SA Fuhrer for Worms-Rheinhessen, by 1930 he was an SA Sturmfuhrer, 1931 he was promoted to SA Sturmbannfuhrer, 1932 SA Standartenfuhrer and Adjutant to SA Group West based in Koblenze, he then held various Adjutant positions untill mid 1933, 1.7.1933 he was promoted to SA Oberfuhrer serving as Stabsfuhrer for SA Gruppe Bayerische Ostmark, from October 1934 untill February 1935 he was the commander of SA Jager Standarter 3 and then from March 1935 until December 1936 he was the commander of SA Brigade 75 based at Gladbach-Rheydt, he was promoted to SA Brigadfuhrer on the 20.4.1935. From the 31.3.1937 untill 1942 he served with the high command of the SA (OBERSTE SA FUHRUNG or better known as the OSAF) as a department chief and successfully heading over time various departments in this SA organization, his last assignment with the OSAF was as chief of the SA Gruppenschulen. On the 9.11.1938 Bock was promoted to SA Gruppenfuhrer. After the death of the SA commander of SA Group Niederrhein, Bock was transferred to lead this SA group and held this position from 1.2.1942 untill 1945, on the 9.11.1944 Bock was promoted to SA Obergruppenfuhrer. Bock was also a member of the Reichstag representing Dusseldorf Ost from 1936 untill 1945, he also held a reserve rank in an army infantry regiment but probably did not see any military service as his SA carrier would have taken up most of his time. Bock survived the war and died in 1974 in Koln. Complete with the dagger is an original copy of the 1938 published book, THE SA BROWN BATTALIONS, page 32 shows an excellent photograph of Franz Bock at this time serving with the OSAH, he is in full SA Brigadefuhrers uniform wearing blood order ribbon, gold party badge and one other award. This truly is an exceptional dagger with a great history and it is in beautiful condition, very few SA honor dagger's can be attributed to an individual and especially to one as interesting as SA Obergrupenfuhrer Franz Bock…………PRICE ON REQUEST………..

SECRET LUFTWAFFE TWO VOLUME REPORT ON LOCATIONS IN ENGLAND. A very rare pair of top secret books (possibly unique) produced by the Luftwaffe during WW2 and describing in detail and with a large amount of maps and photographs all City's, Towns and important locations in England, these two volumes cover southern England including, London and the home counties, the south coast of England including Isle of Weight, Devon & Cornwall, the Eastern regions such as Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire and also parts of central England. All locations of interest are covered, historical such as castles and country houses, industrial such as important factorys and industry, military such as airfield and naval docks and political such as Chequers, the country estate of the prime minister. Each volume contains over 320 page's with a huge amount of photographs, maps and informative text. These books would have been used by the Luftwaffe High command for planning bombing missions over England and used almost certainly in the event of a German invasion of England and probably in conjunction with the notorious German black book which listed British citizens to be targeted and arrested in the event of a successful invasion of England. In over 35 years as a dealer and collector this is the only set of these books i have ever seen, an important historical record which probably should be in a British museum collection so this unique material would be available to those conducting research into this important period of British history.

SS GREEN FEZ AS WORN BY THE WAFFEN SS HANDSCHAR DIVISION. This extremely nice example of an original SS green fez was recently obtained from an English charity shop for very little money, unfortunatly not by me but I did manage to purchase it from the finder. Although over the years I have owned a number of the red fezzes this is only the 2nd example of the green type I have owned, they are considerably harder to find than the red dress fez type, often they are in mint unissued condition but this green fez was obviously issued and worn. The fez when found was flat as it had probably been stored in a cupboard drew but it springs easily back in to shape if required although it does look rather nice in it's found condition. The green wool body is in fine condition with out any staining or mothing. The SS bevo type eagle and skull are perfectly matching and are machine stitched into place on the hat in the correct way. The black tassel is in excellent condition, it is held neatly in place on the back of the fez by several tiny cotton loops which are normally see on original fezzes. The interior of the fez shows just light wear but no damage and features a leather sweat band, there is also a very faint size ink stamp to the inside of the fez but it is difficult to make out now. The fez was issued to the Waffen SS Handschar Division which was formed in 1943 and made up of Bosnian Muslim volunteers, if fought on the Eastern front mostly against partisan's, in 1945 they retreated into Germany with other German forces and managed to surrender to the British Army. After the war 38 officers were sent back to Yugoslavia to be put on trial for so called war crimes, 10 of which were executed. A really fine looking fez which must have had an interesting history.

SS OFFICERS SWORD COMPLETE WITH SS KNOT. This really impressive example comes from the famous Barry Brown collection. The most amazing thing about this SS officers sword is the huge size, the original owner must have been a giant of a man, perhaps a guard officer in the LAH, officers from this elite SS Regiment were known at the time for there extreme height. The length of the blade is 37 inches long, the average is normally about 32 / 33 inches long but can often be shorter than this, the total length of the sword when it is in its scabbard is 44 inches, this truly is a huge sword and it is the longest example I have owned or even seen in over 35 years of dealing and collecting. The grip is in perfect condition and is complete with the silver metal SS runic badge. The silver metal hilt fittings are also in superb condition, the underside of the crossguard is stamped with the SS acceptance stamp. The pommel is the special SS style which screws into the hilt of the sword and not the tang of the blade which is the correct method for an early quality SS sword ( on a police sword the pommel screws into the tang of the blade), the small silver cap which covers the tang of the blade is still in place. The blade is the type with out a makers name but in my opinion these were produced by Krebs, the sword would date to about 1937 period, the white blade buffer pad is still in place, there is some minor age spotting to the lower part of the blade but there is no pitting. The scabbard has platted fittings which is typical for a sword from this period of production, the top silver mount has the SS acceptance stamp, the lower fitting is the preferred SS style with out screws, the original black scabbard paint shows some age but it is still about 85% + still remaining, with out any dents or other damage, this is a very nice looking scabbard. The sword is complete with it's original but well worn SS officers knot, inside the cloth strap in the original cloth SS tag. This is an extremely nice SS officers sword with exceptional collectors provenance and if you are looking for an SS sword I highly recommend it, the size alone makes it a fascinating example.

Complete with black leather sword hanger, silver knot with SS runes to the stem, these are often referred to as SS officers knot's but they were often worn by SS NCO'S and there is photographic proof of this, the knot is interesting as it has an RZM / SS tag to the inside of the strap.
