NSDAP PARTY MEMBERSHIP BOOK WITH UNIFORM PHOTOGRAH AND LOTS OF ENTRYS.
This very interesting party membership book belonged to Hermann Waldschutz, he was born in 1886 and joined the NSDAP in January 1931 so he would be considered at the time as an old fighter for the party, his NSDAP membership number is 410119. The photograph shows him wearing Kepi with early style eagle and brown shirt with out collar patches so it is difficult to know if he was an SA member or political leader but the entry's in the book might suggest political leader or possibly both. Membership stamps in the book from 1933 until 1943.Issue stamps in the book for attendance at five Nuremberg party ralleys and two others which were probably important local NSDAP rally's. Official stamp/ entry from the Reichsleitung for attending a five day training coarse in January 1939 and signed by a party leader.Citation for the NSDAP 10 year long service cross and dated 20.4.1942 and signed by the Kreisleiter of Rottweil. Glued in offical letter to the back cover of the book stating that Hermann Waldschutz attended the NS Gau Fuhrerschule at Nagold near Stuttgart from the 5th of May 1935 until the 11 May 1935.The book has the standard red cover with gold eagle and swastika but interestingly it is mounted with a white silk ribbon with the owners name and NSDAP membership number. A very interesting book, much better than most. [Condition: Near Mint]

NSKK MARINE CHAINED LEADERS DAGGER IN GOLD BY EICKHORN.
The chained NSKK marine leaders dagger is one of the hardest German daggers to find especially when in nice condition with most of the gilt finish remaining, the dagger i have available is in remarkable condition with almost all gilt finish remaining and it is certainly the best example i have owned in over 30 years and in all those years i have only owned three other examples as they are exceedingly hard to find.The crossguards and pommel nut still retain about 95% original gilt finish, the slight wear is to the reverse side probably from rubbing on the original owners tunic. The brown wooden grip is in near mint condition and it is complete with the SA badge and metal eagle. The beautiful blade is in mint condition, the obverse side features the SA motto and the reverse side the the makers details, RZM M7/66 with the 1935 /41 pattern Eickhorn trade mark, Eickhorn is the excepted maker for this model dagger and in my opinion they were the only maker of the NSKK chained marine dagger. The scabbard still retains almost 100% original black paint finish, the scabbard fitting retain all original gilt finish, the condition is really remarkable especially when you consider how thin the gilt finish is on this model dagger. Complete with gilt NSKK chained hanger, having four upper links and five lower links, two of the links are marked on the reverse side, MUSTERSCHUTZ NSKK KORPSFURUNG and RZM M5/8, the spring clip is in fine condition and in working order. An exceptional example, if you are looking for a chained NSKK marine dagger i doubt if you could find a better one than this one. [Condition: Near Mint]
