    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 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. Overall this is an entry level Red Cross Hewer with some condition issues but lots of character. We have priced this one accordingly. Complete museum documentation (COA) Provided. Certified by The Gettysburg Museum of History. 100% guaranteed to be authentic pre-1945.

The dress bayonets were manufactured with an assortment of minor optional variations with a long model, (24.5cm), blade for enlisted personnel and a shorter, (20cm), blade for NCO’s and Officers. Makers attempted to increase demand by marketing the dress bayonets as the "Pionier", (Engineer), models, although they were available to personnel in all branches of service.

    SOLD Scarce Early Left Facing WWII German Hat Eagle Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified . Visor caps were a standard item for all personnel during the Third Reich period and regulations dictated the form of dress they were to be worn with based on the individuals rank.

The Officers and certain senior NCO’s could choose to purchase their caps from the armed forces clothing depots or to privately purchase visor caps of higher quality. Although enlisted personnel were issued their caps from government supplies they were also permitted to purchase privately tailored caps although the price may have been restrictive. Originally the insignia worn on the visor cap consisted of the Weimar Reichsheer pattern oak-leaf wreath and cockade until March 14TH 1933 when the Reichswehr’s oval black, red and gold cockade was replaced with a circular cockade in black, white, and red. First pattern (Scarce left facing eagle) zinc construction national eagle with outstretched wings, clutching a wreathed, canted swastika in its talons.
