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.
CHAINED SS DAGGER WITH KNOT
This a type 2 1936 chained dagger, in good used condition. The grip is solid with one tiny tiny scratch to the rear (hardly noticeable).The eagle and SS roundel are both in superb condition, as is the solid nickle crossguards. The pommel nut is in pristine condition, showing no signs of ever being removed. The scabbard is the painted type but in one section over the years someone has tried to clean some of the paint off leaving part of the scabbard appearing anodised (see images). The chains and scabbard fitting shows a great age patina, possibly never been cleaned. The blade is in good used condition just showing some runner marks along the length of the blade, with no makers marks (as expected). Overall a good used original dagger priced to sell.

EXTREMELY RARE SS MANN\'S KEPI
An extremely rare example of the traditional SS Mann's kepi displaying the early form of SS cap insignia. Kepi is in very good condition , no damage. Kepi has an Austrian maker's panel, which one would imagine was worn by a member of the Austrian SS. Some infamous SS members from Austria include Kaltenbrunner,Eichmann,Globoknic and Seyss inquart to name but a few. This is a nice example of a very rare kepi.
