SS OFFICERS SWORD COMPLETE WITH SS KNOT AND HANGER, NEAR MINT CONDITION.
This SS officers sword / degen is in beautiful condition and it has all early nickel silver fittings and probably dates to about 1937.The grip is in perfect condition and it is fitted with silver circular runic badge.The hilt fittings are nickel silver and the underside of the hilt is stamped with the SS acceptance stamp. The pommel is the special SS style that screws into the hilt of the sword and not the blade tang and the silver cap is still in place over the tang (on a police swords the pommel screws onto the blade tang). Mint plain blade with out makers name which is totally correct for an SS officers sword as they are normally marked Krebs, PMD or un-marked with out a makers name, the white blade buffer pad is still in place. The scabbard retains at least 98% original black paint and it is complete with matching nickel silver mounts, the upper mount is stamped with the SS acceptance stamp and the lower mount is held in place by pressure and not screws which is correct for an SS officers sword and it is what you hope to see. Complete with black leather sword hanger and rare hard to find black and silver bullion sword knot with SS runes to the stem and which is also in really nice condition. A beautiful SS officers sword which would be very difficult to improve on. [Condition: Near Mint]

EARLY SS OFFICERS SILVER HILT LIONS HEAD SWORD BY EICKHORN.
This is a superb example complete with SS runic knot, leather hanger and sword bag.There were a number of makers who offered early SS lions head swords but in my opinion Eickhorn is the most desirable as they produced some of the most important SS edged weapons of the period such as the SS honor dagger. Superb high quality silver hilt showing just very light wear and which has a very nice black age patina as it has never been cleaned, the detail to the lions head is exceptional and it is fitted with red glass eyes which look very sinister, the crossguard features a large open wing eagle and swastika and again this is of exceptional quality and detail.The black celluloid grip is in perfect condition.The blade is in fine condition and it features the early Eickhorn Solingen 1933 - 1935 pattern trade mark which is the same trade mark which is found on the SS Himmlers daggers and the SS damascuse honour daggers and which is possibly significant. The black anodized scabbard is in fine condition. Complete with SS officers silver and black bullion knot featuring the SS runes on the stem, black leather sword hanger and black cloth storage bag which is slightly faded and worn with age but it has certainly preserved and protected the sword. As most collectors are probably aware Himmler kept a special list of gifts that he made to SS Generals, this list mentions various gifts presented by the Reichfuhrer to these SS generals such as edged weapons, including the Eickhorn Himmler daggers and Eickhorn damascuse honor daggers and in the same period he also gave as gifts SS lions head swords and so it makes obvious sense that these swords would also be by Eickhorn, there is no evidence that the sword I am offering is one of these special Himmler gift swords but it is certainly a possibility. [Condition: Near Mint]

SA DAGGER GROUND ROHM, PERSONALIZED TO AN SA OFFICER AND COMPLETE WITH RARE VERTICAL HANGER.
If you are looking for a ground Rohm this is probably the ultimate one to get as it really has it all and it is in fine condition. All early nickel silver fittings, the lower crossguard is SA group stamped Sw and it is also beautifully engraved in an ornate script, Sturmf Lieb 14.4.1934, the quality of the engraving is exceptional and his SA rank in early 1934 was the equivalent to a Lieutenant so there is a good chance that he might have achieved high rank over the proceeding years.The brown wooden grip is in perfect condition and it is inset with SA insignia and Silver eagle. The blade is basically in mint condition, the obverse side features the SA motto, the reverse side has been heavily ground to remove the offending Rohm inscription but some parts of the letters of the inscription are still clearly visable, the early Eickhorn trade mark is also still all complete. The brown anodized scabbard is in fine condition and it still retains much of the original factory finish, the nickel silver fittings are in fine condition with just a slight dent to the ball in the bottom fitting but it is really nothing. Complete with early style brown leather frog hanger with matching early style clip.This is a really nice dagger that i can highly recommend and it would maker an interesting research project.
