Painting of Hermann Göring as Reichsjägermeister (Item GOR 8-5)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a magnificent picture of Reichsmarschal Hermann Göring in his uniform as the Reichsjägermeister, Master of the Hunt. To find out more on this title please refer to our other narrations on Göring at Items GOR 7-1 and GOR 7-4. The picture in oils measures 4 feet x 3 feet and is done by a master artist in Germany. It is taken from the original that has shown up in the U.S. and has been displayed at the ‘Max Show’ and the Louisville ‘Show of Shows.’ The likeness to the original is spectacular, but what this one has and the original does not is the fantastic antler-art frame. This frame is a period production dating in the 1930s and was originally in a Jagdhalle (hunting lodge) in east Prussia. We bought this frame years ago and saved it for something like this and the wait was worth it for this painting couldn’t be more appropriate for this magnificent frame. The master of the hunt is seen here with a hunting falcon that is depicted with the traditional and necessary hood. Göring wears on his arm the patch of the Deutscher Jäger association that he founded. The face, clothing, and colors are great and this would be just the ticket for a hunting collection or great for the centerpiece of a general WWII German assemblage of important relics that might lean to the artistic.

PRICE: $2,800.00; the frame alone is worth more than half the price; Special mark-down sale now $1,999.00

German Army Tunic (Feldbluse) for Enlisted Ranks (Item WEHR 33-25)

DESCRIPTION: Here is what seems to be as rare as a hen’s teeth in the militaria field; the uniform a private’s, the GI of Deutschland, the soldier who fought so valiantly to turn back the beast of Bolshevism and to save the western world. This stalwart soldier who, when the political correctness and sickening liberalism is only a memory, will be remembered as the hero of our century. The German soldier was the sharpest-looking warrior in his particular neat-looking dress to say nothing of the obvious fact that he was the finest soldier in every way of the belligerents of the First and Second World Wars, and had not America, Britain, and France supported the red Communists against Europe, this brave soldier and his Allies would have completely prevailed and as for me I believe the world would be a safer and a better place (author’s opinion).

The Tunic

This tunic is in what I would have to honestly say is quite ravaged by the nasty little moths that had found it delicious at one time (since then cleansed). The very bottoms of the pockets are ravaged by the little monsters. You can see some of the damage in our pictures. We hide nothing. There is also some moth damage near the left collar. Because of its red piping, the tunic is the type issued to an artilleryman and appears to be an M-36 Model (correct us if we are wrong). We do know that the M-36 (Feldbluse) was used until the very end of the war although successive patterns became predominant. Regardless of the condition this 100-percent original tunic is actually rarer than the officer’s models and sought after actively by collectors. Is this because GIs thought the officer uniforms were prettier and thus more desirable as souvenirs? Hard to say, but here it is and I believe the price is fair and equitable regardless of the general condition. The moths don’t go with it they were arrested and disposed of as enemy partisans.

Child’s Hussar Perzmütze or Busby (First Leib Hussar) (Item KHELMET 2-9; KTOY 1-8)

DESCRIPTION:This is an extremely rare child's uniform piece. This distinctive piece of imperial headgear in the original form was the instantly recognizable mark of the elite First Hussars or Totenkopfhussaren (Death's Head Hussars Leib Regiment). This regiment struck fear into the hearts of the enemy in many battles. This was a light cavalry unit that dressed in elegant uniforms resplendent in braided and fur-trimmed jackets. The Hussars were mounted on the swiftest horses in the army. The daring charges of the Prussian Hussars became legendary. They were the bravest and most dashing! This Leib regiment stood out above the others. It dressed in black and took as its badge a skull. This symbolized to them the adage “death or glory.” They were famous for their bravery in numerous battles. They captured the eagle standard of the elite French 55th Line Infantry Regiment at the Battle of Leipzig in 1813. We should remember that the fiery Prussian Marshal Blucher (Marshal Vorwarts!) himself started his career as a Hussar officer, but the most famous of all the Death's Head Hussars of Germany was General Field Marshal Machensen. See our writings on him at KCLOTH 1-17. The field marshal was the most noble of the noble! The Busbee we offer here is not a full-sized service example, but a child's costume item that is almost more rare than the adult Busby. The Hussars were so admired that it was only natural that bronze statues, dramatic paintings, woodcuts, porcelains, etc., were found all through the time of the kings and Kaisers. Often, ladies who were related to royalty were seen posed in such uniforms. The Hussar officers were usually from the families of the royals or at least wealthy landed gentry. The child who wore the Totenkopf Hussar uniform was generally the chief of the costume party. Often it was the sons of the Hussars that were from time to time dressed up thusly for photographs. This Busby is remarkably accurate, although merely a look-alike. The skull is a bit different, but otherwise it is pretty much like the original’s to include the motto in the scroll that proclaims “With God for Kaiser and Fatherland” (“Mit Gott für Kaiser und Vaterland”). It is made from imitation fur and has a liner of leather. The condition is excellent and it is really a super little memento of the glory that was Wilhelmesque Germany: a time of culture awareness and refinement, but also a time of Teutonic power and discipline. “Der Kaiser ruft und wir folgen.”

An Album from a Waffen SS (Totenkopf) Officer (Item ALBUM 3-1)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a great SS album. From the way the pictures are laid out we deduce that the officer pictured on two pages of the album must be the former owner of the album. He is pictured wearing the double skull collar tabs on each side of the collar, this style was introduced in 1939 for the newly formed SS Totenfopfverbande. So, this will show that the officer in the picture should have been photographed somewhere in 1939 or as late as May 1940 but actually some SS TK members continued to wear the double skulls late into the war. He seems to be an Obersturmfuhrer if the pips are but one - - however it is hard to make out if there is one pip and another device or if indeed there are two pips and then he would be a  (Captain) SS  Hauptsturmfuhrer. This album is truly historically significant and rather charming. It opens with a large picture of the officer’s wife or girl friend with a very cute little puppy. She holds the puppy in such a way that suggests she has mailed this to her husband or lover at the front. The pictures depict scenes from when he was a recruit with one where he is being issued his uniforms along with other recruits right up through his getting the famous army hairdo. A humorous one shows him or a buddy learning to pee while dressed in overcoat and tunic. Quite a few pictures of troop inspections and comradely posed photos. There are several pictures of the unit on the march and a great one 7" x 5" of the unit at a ceremonial observance. There are the usual “horsing around” photos just like in any army. A couple of pages of camp scenes in the barracks. A really great one of a meeting for dinner with a picture of Adolf Hitler on the wall.  At this table are Waffen SS men, Luftwaffe personal, Kriegsmarine, etc.  On the last page is a card with a song “Yes, True is the Soldier's Love.” This is a very meaningful and important SS album; one of the nicest ones that we have had for sentimental reasons and yet with militaristic importance, also a relic from a division that covered themselves with glory and personified the SS mission.

Two Huge Albums Chronicling Military Events of the Third Reich in the Stuttgart Area (ITEM ALBUMS 3-5 & WEHR 32-8)

DESCRIPTION: These two brown linen covered albums are replete with 7 x 4 ½" size sharp black and white photos of ceremonies and visitations of important military and N.S. Civil Officials to the central German city of Stuttgart.  There is a stamp and a label also that shows this was from 1936 on the covers. The labels indicate that these albums were the property of Section 26 Reserve Division of the army and chronicles a festive meeting in 1936.  There obviously were more albums but these are NR  3 + 5. In Volume 5 there are 30 pictures all highly professionally done showing the visitation of the Gaulieter and Gaulietung plus various high ranking N.S. people and Wehrmacht Generals at somber ceremonies for the fallen of WW 1, assemblages of German soldiers in dress attire, etc. (great photos). In Volume 2 we have similar 3 ½ x 5" photos showing further festivities reviews, parades, spike helmeted military figures, N.S.D.A.P officials and in the end a presentation before a massive audience of a vivid presentation of either a film or a moving pantomime of events of the war.  There are 96 photos in this album most of the events are staged around the central city square of Stuttgart and I recognize the lion and stag bronze heraldic symbols that are seen in the back ground of the various scenes.(still there). The albums measure 16 x 12 ½" in size and are in great shape (76 years old). Here is an actual glimpse of the majesty of the German martial spirit reflected in the faces, the Pomp and Ceremony. It was a time vilified by Belanglosen “inconsequential people” but it still remains admirable by those among us that should be considered “Enormen”!

The folder for the presentation of the
town document to Herr Schoemann

Fantastic Historically Important Album and Political Document Group (Item NSDAP 19-15; ALBUMS 3-9)

DESCRIPTION: The beautiful album begins with a dedication to party member Schoemann from the Bürgermeister of the city of Friedrichsthal. The mayor says: “Party Comrade Schoemann, we hereby present to you in the name of the town council this commemorative book on the occasion of your leaving Friedrichsthal.” He goes on to say: “May it be a piece of home for you and for us; it is a great gift of thanks for your understanding and diligent work for all of us. It shall be a reminder of the tasks and fulfilled work in the service of our organization—Heil Hitler!” Then the signature of the Bürgermeister (mayor), and under that it says: “Friedrichsthal on 28 December 1940.” Folded inside the cover are two beautiful hand-done calligraphy documents. The first is from the Bürgermeister of the town of Villingen and it is from the aldermen of that town, as well. It says: “We, the officials of this town of Villingen, hereby announce with this document that on the occasion of the inauguration of a memorial commemorating the Saar Plebiscite in Friedrichsthal we have therefore named a new street after the city of Friedrichsthal and we have given the town square the name of Bildstock. The new names shall witness our brotherly connection that has been in existence since the time of struggle and shall forever bear witness that the city of Friedrichsthal-Bildstock is connected with us for the future. To show our eternal friendship so that it will enable our youth to continue in the same spirit, the town of Villingen has collected the sum of 10,000 Reichsmarks to build a Hitler Youth Center. This document shall stand as proof of our gratitude and we declare this with our town seal and signatures affixed in Villingen, June 1937.” At the end of the sentence is a tiny swastika instead of a period. Under this is the mayor’s signature and the actual wax seal of the town. This document is inside a white folder with the town coat of arms and the name of the recipient Herr Johann Schoemann. Each place a sentence ends, instead of a period there is a swastika. Also in this folder there is another official hand-lettered (calligraphy) document; it’s lettered thusly: “Hark to all those who will read this proclamation! We the mayor and the aldermen of the town of Villingen and the city of Friedrichsthal-Bildstock have come to an agreement to intertwine our bands of friendship in integrating our town with Friedrichsthal-Bildstock, a friendship that has existed ever since the days of the Saar Plebiscite and we promise to help each other in times of need now and in the future. We do this in the name of our Führer and the National Socialist movement and to demonstrate our loyalty to all of our German Volk! To this pledge and with this document we shall adhere to and therefore set our signatures and seal that will bear witness to this in Villingen and Friedrichsthal-Bildstock in the year 1937 in the month of June.” Signed—the Mayor and Aldermen of Villingen. And on the other side is the mayor and aldermen of Friedrichsthal-Bildstock. Between them is the actual wax seal and on each side of the seal are columns of signatures; about 35 in all. The coats of arms of both the towns are in the heading; all hand drawn and painted in beautiful realism. They are joined as is befitting the amalgamation of the towns and their officials. All of this and the funds mentioned were supplied by party member Johann Schoemann. He was a very rich man about town in Friedrichsthal and he was now leaving Friedrichsthal and this was a sad farewell gift to him as he was the most favored son of the city. The album has pictures of his simple house, and pictures of public buildings that he and his family supported in their generous philanthropy are also shown. The HQ building of the NSDAP and the city hall in Friedrichsthal were financed by the Schoemann family as well as the HQ of the SA. The pictures of the interior decorations in the city hall are great! with a beautiful mosaic depicting the town seals and N .S. unit insignia (A Germanophile’s dream!) Other pictures show a painting and a bust of Adolf Hitler. There are pictures of the town council in the meeting rooms with a Hitler portrait in the background. There are many pictures of the towns, schools, gyms, churches, petrol stations, parks, public swimming pools, suburban housing built entirely with the NSDAP and Schoemann funding; entertainment centers, important office buildings, social centers, etc., and Herr Schoemann provided money to the Hitler Youth to establish a Freizeitlager for the Villingen H.J. (Hitler Youth Camp) and there are pictures of this of course in the album. In the album also are pictures of the victorious soldiers returning from the reoccupation of the Saar after the plebiscite and the celebration in the now-joined towns of Friedrichsthal-Bildstock and Villingen. These are very impressive and historically important pictures. Next there are pictures of the concise creation of the veterans’ memorial and Warrior Appreciation Day in 1939. There is a man in a wheelchair wearing a swastika armband officiating on this day of (20 April) the Führer’s birthday. Another following sequence of events includes ceremonies with Schoemann speaking on May Day meetings. He was an Ortsgruppenleiter (district leader) there are interesting pictures of collections in 1939 of metal for the war effort showing SS and SA men who participated. There is a great picture of political leaders receiving soldiers from the front. (Die grosse Sieg im Westen) The Great Victory in the West. Then, like most albums that we have ever offered with such political subjects, it abruptly ends in 1939 because of the deeper involvement in the war, so several pages are skipped and then there are 11 postcards from the modern era placed there by the family of district leader Schoemann after the war. Part of them (eight of them in full color) are pictures are various scenes from the towns of Friedrichsthal-Bildstock and Villingen. Included in the group is an 8 x 11 picture of Count Friedrich Ludwig, the founder of Friedrichsthal in 1723. The album is made with brown leather covers and measures 12 x 6 in size (big!). It has a beautiful coat of arms of Villingen deeply embossed on its cover in gilded art form. Also on the left corner is the “Hoheitsabzeichen”—national eagle—also deeply embossed in gold. The album is more than an inch deep. Fifty-four sharp black-and-white photos and the color cards are all neatly and nicely placed. We would have to say that this might be the most historically important album that we have ever presented for sale and we love albums because unlike swords, daggers, medals and orders, uniforms, etc., the albums are always unique and are the last vestiges that give a glimpse of days gone forever and are testaments to the men who owned them, and were seen perhaps for the last time in history. The ancients said that as long as an image of a man lingers then he is alive! Let the image of Ortsgruppenführer Johann Schoemann live on as he certainly deserves to. Kein Volk Lebt langer als die Documente seiner kultur. (No people live longer than the documentation of their culture!)—Adolf Hitler, 1937.

PRICE: $1,650.00 This is a prodigiously important document from an important era and testament to an important man. This is being offered as a special sale for $1,200.00.

Commemorative Plate of the Hussar Regiment Pommersches Nr. 5 (Item KGLASS 3-2)

DESCRIPTION: This famed Hussar Regt. was named KGL Königslische Prussian Hussar Rgt. Fürst (Prince) Blucher von Wahlstaat Pommersches Nr.5 named after Marshal Blucher the man who led many a daring charge. History records that the most important one was when he and his “children” Prussian Hussars” tore headlong into Napoleon’s troops at Waterloo and saved Wellington. They brought about the victory and saved the day for the “Iron Duke” who would have lost, and lost totally, without the famed “Marshal Vorwärts” (marshal forward) as his troops named him. The dish depicts a skeleton reposing with his smile of death and under this are the words in Latin “VINCERE AVT MORI,” which translated means “Conquer or die.” This fits in with the leering skull worn by Hussars ever since 1758. the symbolism always connected with elite troops which numbered also the Third Reich SS troops who carried this meaning with the display of the death's head (Totenkopf). Actually, special regiments worldwide use the skull as a reminder of death or glory including the 17th and 21st Lancers of the British Army (the charge of the Light Brigade, Britain's elite cavalry unit). The plate measures 9 1/2 inches in diameter and is in beautiful, perfect shape. There are no nicks or scratches. This is a macabre yet great-looking item of the glory days of European militarism.

Memory Plaque from the Reichs Party Rallies at Nuremberg (Item PARTEI 4-6)

DESCRIPTION: This is one of the souvenirs that were sold on the grounds of the Reichsparteitag in Nuremberg during the annual rallies. The people attending these “earth shattering” events naturally had to have a souvenir of their attendance, whether it be a simple scarf, a key fob, postcards, a paper flag or something as expensive as a bronze eagle by Schmidt Ehmen. Pictures of Hitler were, of course, the main selling item and came in many different shapes, sizes and artistic modes. This one that we offer here is a particularly nice one in its presentation. It has a picture of Hitler under beveled glass and is set into an elaborate frame in metal with an eagle at its top, folded flag like tapestries surround the inner wreath of laurel. Under the picture is a frame that has within a legend that says, “Ehre Seinem Andenken!” -- Honor Your Memories! The plaque is typically mounted on a black board that measures 7" x 10".  This is a very handsome souvenir plaque, important historically and a great collectible of the great Party rallies.

SS Firearms Certificate “Extremely Rare” (Item SS 29-4)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a Waffenschein, or firearms certificate, which we call a ‘pistol permit,’ signed by GESTAPO Chief Müller. It is issued to an SS man in the II. Sturmbann 21. attached to SS-Standarte in 8/5/36. He was authorized to carry a Walther PP caliber 7.65 serial number 888450. The picture attached is the man as he looked when in the Reichswehr Police. Many of these men were inducted into the SS in 1933. This certificate is extremely rare because it has the seal of the Riechssicherheitsdienste, Security Service, and is signed by SS GESTAPO Chief Heinrich Müller, 1960-1972. Müller was quite a war hero in WWI and earned the Iron Cross First Class for a daring reconnaissance flight over Paris. He was a first-class war pilot. After the war he joined the Bavarian Police in Munich and after quick advancement he was put in charge of investigating the communist activities and as a natural result he developed a deep hatred of communism. Ironically, he was also very much active in anti-NSDAP work and earned the hatred of the Munich Nazis. When Hitler came to power, Müller expected to be fired, but Heydrich recognized his value and took him into the SS and made him the head of the GESTAPO. While in office Müller built the GESTAPO into a fearsome organization that by 1945 controlled all foreign and domestic intelligence in Germany. Müller was a professional policeman who had the reputation for being extremely ruthless in rooting out spies and malcontents. A diehard nationalist, Müller constantly sabotaged any and all attempts by opponents of the war to negotiate with either the monster Stalin or the western powers and remained in Berlin until the last minute. On April 29, 1945, he vanished from Berlin. U.S. intelligence documents indicate that he flew south and settled in Switzerland. It now appears that Müller was contacted by the newly formed CIA in 1948 and worked for the Americans setting up an anticommunist section inside that agency. Reliable sources indicate the Müller died in Hawaii in 1973 still proud of his past and totally unrepentant. The front of the permit says: “Waffenschein, (weapons permit) valid for 1 year and then off to the right #252 is extended for 5 years. The holder is not permitted to wear his weapon to meetings or parades. The SS member, Heinz Martin, living in Neuhaldersleben, was born October 26, 1914, in Niedermöllrich. He is a German national and has permission to carry a weapon up to caliber 7.65. He is permitted to carry this weapon only if he is in party or other “SS” uniforms. He also has permission to buy ammunition. The other side shows his picture with the ‘SD’ stamp and the Müller signature and the listing of the 7.65 with its serial number and a notation that he was issued the weapon and that, Clemens, an SS officer of issue, extended it until July 1940. Actually, it was quite easy for a party functionary or even a decent private citizen to get a weapons permit in the Third Reich contrary to the opinions of certain anti- and pro-gun groups in the U.S. If the Third Reich and Hitler never existed certain pressure groups would have to have invented him as the ultimate bogeyman!

Knife and Fork Having Belonged to the Dining Service of Ambassador Joachim von Ribbentrop (Item PERS 4-18a)

DESCRIPTION: This knife and fork were part of a sale in 1950 of items that were looted by GIs or by the neighbors of the Ribbentrop’s who did not want to see the Americans steal all of the items stored there and most everything taken by these neighbors was eventually returned to Frau Ribbentrop after she returned from the denazification process administered by the ‘good’ Germans and their American and British “advisors.” Frau Ribbentrop did not accept any items that bore a swastika because she had justifiable fear of the “liberators” who had murdered her beloved husband. She believed she had not seen the last of these bandits and troglodytes, yet. So many of the items featuring the feared symbol were stashed in neighboring homes and came out in 1950 and in subsequent years.

The Knife and Fork

The two pieces of bestecke (flatware) are from the set owned by the Ribbentrop family and bear the particular eagle that the chief ambassador chose as his personal N.S. symbol. It is a bit different than the ones in the carving set seen above, but still it is the Ribbentrop eagle. The pieces were designed by Bruckmann and that was the company that produced the Hitler Reich chancellery and Berghof silverware. The pieces are signed on the tang with the Bruckmann signature and the half moon, the crown, and “925” for the silver content and then the tiny eagle that follows the silver stamps. The blade of the knife has the famous twin symbol of the J.A. Henckels Solingen Zwillingwerk. So, the pieces were made by two of the most famous names in cutlery in Germany. They measure 7 ½ inches on the fork and 8 ¼ inches on the knife. The quality is superb as befitting the table of this distinguished gentleman who was true to his family, his nation, his Führer and his God. The items offered here can be silent memorials to this brilliant and amazing man. If any saying could be uttered that would fit this N.S. loyalist it would be this one by George William Curtis: “A man’s country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle; and patriotism is loyalty to that principle.”

PRICE: $1,750.00 for the set; consigner has made a special reduction; this is now offered at $950.00

Political Leader Grouping (Item NSD 7-9)

DESCRIPTION: This is one great group of awards and documents to one Ortsgruppenamtsleiter Friedrich Renke of Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg. The rank of political leader mentioned above is a high one in the political leadership corps. Basically, the folder contains three different awards conferred on Herr Renke, but there are notifications to him that he is going to be a recipient and in the case of the War Service Cross Second Class and First Class he received temporary certificates in 1944 for winning the medals in 1943. Obviously, he must have been at the front in 1944, but when he received the actual medal and document, it was dated 5 May 1943 and this was when he must have performed the act that won it for him. The 6 x 4 cards show he won both classes of the Kriegsverdienstkreuz and the NSDAP in Hamburg was issuing him a Vorläufiger Ausweis or temporary document. The full award is among the group, but the first is missing or he never actually received it. In May 1939, he received the 40-year True Service Medal in gold, while he was a Stellvertretenden Direcktor. The actual award certificate is there again with the Hitler facsimile signature with this there is a hand-signed letter telling him that he would be soon receiving the 40-year decoration. A member of the Hamburg Senate issued this letter. Renke was the Deputy Director of the Association of Hamburg Schools at the time, according to the letter. Encased in a red leatherette folder is another award to him when he was an Ortsgruppenmitarbeiter in January 1940. This one has the Hitler facsimile signature, but Dr. Meissner’s signature seems to be the real thing. The cover of the Mappe, or folder, bears the Nazi Party eagle. This award confers on him the medal for deutsche Volkspflege, the German Social Welfare decoration in recognition of loyal and dedicated service to the German nation and people. Also, included is a picture 5 ½ x 3 ½ inches of Renke and his lovely family: wife, son, and daughter. The son was a Wehrmacht officer. It can only be hoped that all of these people survived the terrible time, but the fact that this grouping is available today rather casts doubt on our hope, at the end of day.

 Absolutely Gorgeous and Magnificent Early American Sword (Item USARTICLES 3-24; ANTWEP 4-28)

DESCRIPTION: Here we offer one of the finest American swords that we have ever seen. It is by the notable silversmith John Sayre in New York who worked from 1810 to 1831. The closest example we have found to a description is in the book The American Sword, 1775-1945. On page 108 figure #99 the author Harold L. Peterson shows a mounted artillery officer’s saber 1820-1840. The one he shows is similar to the sword we offer having a carved-bone grip with a tight hand-checkered pattern. Also, see the book known as The American Eagle Pommel Sword: The Early Years 1794-1830. On page 176, figure 44.b, the author E. Andrew Mowbray shows an artillery officer’s saber 1815-20. Although the sword shown is an eagle-head-pommel style the illustration shows a sword that is otherwise very similar to the one we offer. Also in the same book in the color section there is another sword that is similar to ours and with a heavily engraved scabbard. Mr. Mowbray claims this is a presentation-quality American dress saber. The languet, however, is plain where ours bears the highly decorative American-eagle motif. The sword he describes has the similar gilded etching on a blued background. Of course, we know that this sword that we have is unique, but we attempted to find one similar of the same general pattern. Swords such as this were worn by light-artillery officers as early as the opening years of the War of 1812, and this sword could very possibly be that early. Staff officers of the branches authorized to wear a saber also favored this form until 1832, when they were required to wear straight swords, and militia officers of many branches of service adopted it. It was superseded in 1840 by a new model. The curved blade is single edged. The upper part of the blade is blued and it is ornamented with a military trophy, the US Coat of Arms. (Federal Eagle). There are two bright panels with varying floral motifs. The knuckle bow is of the reverse “P” pattern decorated with leaf design and beaded ornamentation. All metal parts of the hilt are gilded brass as is the scabbard, which is heavily etched with floral decoration and an American eagle in take-off flight pattern. The tip of the scabbard is also etched with oak-leaf motive running about six inches up. The suspension on the scabbard is provided by two carrying rings. The crossguard is not engraved. There is a ferrule at the base of the grips and it is surmounted by a back strap. The overall length of the sword is a little over three feet. The condition is really excellent, no apparent dents. The American-eagle languet is repeated on both sides of the grip. On the rim of the back of the blade are the initials of the maker: “J.S & co.” The gilt National Eagle and floral designs are very outstanding. The blade does show some nicks almost as if used in combat. One of the blade escutcheons on the reverse side is a potpourri of various colonial weapons and a regimental drum. The pommel is decorated with heavy floral design. This is an extremely significant American sabre worthy of a prestigious collection or museum display.

PRICE: $12,000.00: a great bargain indeed; however, the consigner has decided to make it an even GREATER bargain and reduced it to $9,000.00

Kaiser Wilhelm II Commemorative Dish (Plaque) (Item WILHELM 9-26; SPECIAL SALE)

DESCRIPTION: Here is an absolutely beautiful and special commemorative-art plate depicting Kaiser Wilhelm and his special generals and his Austrian Royal ally, Emperor Franz Joseph I. The central figure is a wonderful depiction of the German Kaiser, whose portrait is seen above the crest of the Prussian eagle with the famous Bismarck quote: “We Germans fear God and nothing else in the world.” Now, before we go forth with this, we must alert you to the fact that very regrettably this piece suffered a double crack along one edge at some point in its more than 100 years of age. Fortunately, the pieces were not lost and a fairly well accomplished glued repair was made (see the images of the damage) around the edges of the Kaiser’s image are the picture portraits of the generals starting at the right with Field Marshal von Hindenburg and underneath, Field Marshal von Mackensen. On the left is General v. Kluck and Graf v. Zeppelin. Here we present an absolutely grand-looking and historically important item. If it were in perfect condition it could easily bring somewhere around $500 at a good military auction, but because of the damage that by the way is not readily noticeable when viewing it, we will let it go for $200.00. This will make a grand wall display and the damage is well controlled and not going anywhere. You are going to love it!

PRICE: $200.00

Very Special -Allach Fruit Bowl (Item SPECIAL SALE; Allach/Hitler 1-6)

DESCRIPTION: We are putting this one dinner fruit bowl up from the Allach porcelain grouping manufactured by the porcelain firm at Allach as a present to Adolf Hitler. It measures about 2 inches deep and about 6 inches in opening diameter. We are certain it will quickly sell at this rather ridiculous price and why do we do it? Because we want to call your attention to the large collection of other great pieces of this wonderful grouping that you can see at SS Allach Porcelain Dinnerware Made for Adolf Hitler. There you can read more about the SS Allach firm and the wonderful porcelain pieces they produced. This great item is offered at a price far distant from the formal pieces that you will see there. The item goes to a lucky collector at $480.00 and this is a typical commercial loss leader. The true value of this original and historically important piece is much more than this as you can well imagine. So, I do hope that you, my collector friend will take full advantage of this amazing one-time special offer.

PRICE: $480.00; plus shipping
