    Original WWII German RARE NSKK “Ground Rohm” Dagger Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified

    $895.00
    Original German NSKK Rare "Ground Rohm" Dagger Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified.  In 1934 Ernst Röhm instituted a honor dagger for members serving in the SA and NSKK prior to December 1931. The dagger was identical in every respect to the standard SA/NSKK dagger with the exception that it had the inscription "In Herzlicher Freundschaft Ernst Röhm" to the reverse of the blade. After Röhm’s fall from power during the "The night of the long knives" in 1934, all SA/NSKK personal where ordered to remove the inscription. Surviving examples can sometimes be found,  the majority of the daggers had it completely ground off.  This early Carl Eickhorn example has excellent nickel crossguards being the in house variety produced by Eickhorn. These guards have good smooth surfaces, crisp edges and the very deep hand done accent grooves we usually see with this maker. Additionally the guards are marked internally “H.E.”. The tang nut does not look to have been apart  on this dagger. The lower reverse crossguard is gruppe marked “Ho”. The grip is a fine medium brown colored fruitwood. It shows some usage signs but overall it is still in excellent condition having a good close graining which runs vertical. The grip fits the crossguards fairly nice but Eickhorns aren’t known for always having a perfect fit. The SA runes button is in good condition and the early grip eagle is the high-necked variety having full details to the eye, breast feathering, wing feathering, legs, wreath and raised mobile swastika. Not a bad hilt here. The scabbard shell is straight throughout. It has old original black paint which was originally done when the NSKK ordered their SA scabbards painted. This paint  is nice with some spidering but minimal loss. These nickel mounts exactly match the patination of the crossguards. They are in good condition throughout to include the lower ball. The lower mount appears to have its original screws. The upper mount has a later style domehead screw. The blade of this example is still mostly bright having a few stains on the obverse as well as the reverse. The Röhm inscription appears to have been completely ground off of this blade. There was no attempt to regrain the area so the inscription points are fairly rough. The owner really must have wanted the Rohm inscription GONE! It is possible to see the original graining though in all the areas where the grounding did not occur. The trademark is the early oval type that has a seated squirrel with serrated tail. The crossguard contours perfectly fit the blade shoulders. An original “as found” untouched Röhm dagger. Come with a single piece hanger,  (see photo). This is fresh to the collector's market, and has never been touched or polished or shined, or taken apart.  This is the way we like them! If you ever wanted a rare untouched ground Rohm NSKK dagger this is your chance! U.S. Veteran bring-back condition. Gettysburg Museum Certified (COA) provided. Rare 100% Guaranteed to be authentic pre-1935.  Sold for historic purposes only.

  • Original WWII German Army Wehrmacht NCO/OFFICER’S BREAST EAGLE Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified

    SOLD Original WWII German Army Wehrmacht NCO/OFFICER'S BREAST EAGLE Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified. The German army originally adopted a slightly modified version of the NSDAP’s national eagle by order on February 17TH 1934, with instructions to have it applied to all steel helmets, visor caps, and tunics by May 1ST 1934. Later amendments to the introductory order stipulated that the national eagle was also to be worn on all field caps, the sports uniform and the black panzer wrap. The eagle came in three distinct designs with two having slightly different out-stretched wings and the third with down-swept wings. Generally Officer’s ranks utilized hand or machine embroidered breast eagles while EM/NCO’s ranks utilized machine embroidered or woven breast eagles. The early, standard issue, EM/NCO’s M36 breast eagles were in white threads and were to be abolished in 1939 to be replaced with a less visible grey M39 breast eagle but the changeover was never fully completed. This pattern was primarily utilized on the service dress uniform and the M35 dress tunic but it can also be encountered on field blouses. Machine woven, national breast eagle with outstretched wings, clutching a wreathed, canted, swastika in it’s talons in bright, silver/aluminum flat-wire threads on a cut-out, woven, blue/green rayon base which is machine stitched on a blue/green badge cloth backing.  Excellent condition slight moth nip on back, does not effect the front.   Complete museum documentation (COA) Provided.

  • Original WWII German Red Cross Hewer (Dagger) Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified

    SOLD   Original WWII German Red Cross Hewer (Dagger) Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified. The DRK, "Deutsches Rotes Kreuz" (German Red Cross), a voluntary civil assistance organization originally instituted in 1864, was officially acknowledged by the Geneva Convention in 1929, and in December of 1937 it was legally recognized by the NSDAP, becoming controlled by them a year later under the auspices of the Ministry of the Interior’s Social Welfare Organization. Due to its non-combatant status, it had to conform to the international Geneva Convention, which directed that its members not carry any weapons, including edged weapons. As a result, the DRK Subordinate’s hewer, introduced in 1938, was designed with a squared tip to preclude its classification as a weapon, allowing its wear in the field. It was worn by the ranks of "DRK-Anwärter" to "DRK-Haupthelfer". The hewer features a roughly, 10 1/2", (26.6 cm), long, broad, squared, blunt tipped, nickel/silver plated, drop forged, steel construction blade with deep, wide, fullers, a staggered, saw-toothed, edge, a large, flat, ricasso and a full length, including the hilt, of roughly, 15 5/8", (39.6 cm). The blade has some condition issues including the veteran who brought it home (not knowing it was not suppose to have a point made a point)!.  The cast alloy construction, cross guard, languets, and pommel all have a matte, nickel/silver plated finish (some loss). The obverse, vertically oval, languet has a raised, smooth, outer edge encompassing an embossed second pattern, (Circa 1938-1945), DRK style national eagle with down-swept wings, a highly embossed swastika to it’s breast, and a traditional Greek style cross in it’s talons, on a slightly recessed, pebbled, field.  The reverse, vertically oval, languet also has the raised, smooth, outer edge encompassing a slightly recessed, smooth field. The short, horizontally extended, cross guard features two, evenly spaced, deeply recessed, horizontal, lines near both the top and bottom edges. The unique shaped, horizontally oval, integral, plain pommel is intact. The hewer has molded, black, bakelite grips held in place by two, countersunk screws. The obverse grip features a repeating, diamond grooved pattern and the reverse grip is plain. The hewer comes with it’s original, black painted (has been period re- painted), magnetic sheet metal scabbard with matte, nickel/silver plated top and bottom fittings. Both the top and bottom fittings are secured to the scabbard by two, small, dome headed screws. Also looks like the Veteran had some sort of tag on the scabbard. Maker marked.

  • Adolf Hitler’s Personal Formal Pattern Large Silver Spoon Captured From The Eagle’s Nest By A 101st Airborne Soldier Certified By The Gettysburg Museum Of History

    SOLD   Hitler's Personal Formal Pattern Silver Large  Spoon Captured From The Eagle's Nest By A 101st Airborne Soldier.  A silver spoon with Adolf Hitler’s personal eagle and “AH” monogram with “Greek Key” edge pattern.

In very good condition (see photos). This piece is well documented as coming from The Eagle's Nest (Kehlstein Monuntain) near Berchtesgarden in Germany. It was "Liberated"  by PFC Clarence L. Overman of the 506 Parachute Infantry Regiment of the  101st Airborne as a trophy of war. PFC Overman was one of the first men to make the trek up to the Eagles's Nest on May 5th 1945. He and several other men went into the Eagle's Nest and found a very large group of Hitler's silver, it was divided up by the Paratroopers by "rolling dice" to "pick pieces" according to Overman's account. He later mailed his share home. In 1947 he wrote to his former commander Colonel Robert F. Sink about the legality of taking Hitler's silver as a war trophy and Sink could not provide a clear answer (see photo of Sink's letter). Also see photos of Overman including a photo of Overman in May 1945 at Hitler's Berghof.   100% guaranteed to be authentic complete museum documentation (COA) provided.
