SS-LAH (Leibstandarte) Shoulder Boards for Obersturmführer (Item LEIBSS 2-1)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a very nice set of shoulder boards for a Leibstandarte first lieutenant (senior assault leader rank). Because they are piped in red these would be for an officer of artillery. They have the silver-white overlay with red Waffenfarbe laid over black-cloth boards. The LAH cyphers in gold metallic color in brass are beautiful. This is a very nice set of sew-on boards.

  Leibstandarte Ring (Item LEIBSS 2-2a; SS 1-3a)

DESCRIPTION: This is the full-sized Allgemeine- ring of the elite Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler. This ring at first was issued, but only for a short time. Then it became an item that would be individually purchased, but the specific rule was that it could only be worn after all qualifications were met. it was widely worn, but definitely was not a required uniform item; however, this unit, especially this unit, was made up of young enthusiastic idealists who were extremely proud of their membership in this “elite of the elite” corps. So it was only natural that this art-deco design of grace and beauty would adorn the fingers of this Praetorian Guard named after their leader, Adolf Hitler, whose name appeared upon their cuff bands. This is actually the most plain looking of the rings, but it’s beautiful in its simplicity. Crafted in silver with 1930’s hard-paste enamel, it seems to say it all! Here are the victory runes embodying the spirit of the Schwarz Corps. You can hold it to your ear and if you are quiet you can hear the marching hob-nailed boots and the strains of the Badenweiler March. Place it in your hand and the arm may start to move upward revealing the Deutsches Grüss and you may go around saying “Meine ehre Heist Treue” for awhile. The ring is really that awesome in its deigns and historical significance. It is marked 835 (the silver designation inside). If you ever wanted to own the one best representative ring of the , here is the one; a Teutonic treasure indeed!

Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler Plaque (Item LEIBSS 2-2; SS 6-2)

DESCRIPTION: This dramatic and huge plaque was one of several that were found recently in Germany in what was a basement or bunker of the former barracks of the elite division of the Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler. After the war this was the barracks known as the Andrew's Barracks of the U.S. Army. How they came into our possession is interesting in that the son of one of the men (a German) who worked in a clean-up crew was engaged in reconstructive work in the sixties. When they opened several passages down below they found lots of unused building material that had been stored there under the auspices of the SS Central Command. Bills of lading with SS authorization were also found. One large packing crate mislabeled 'ceiling tiles' had not been disturbed since 1945, when the building was abandoned. Inside the now-opened crate revealed these plaques; both in aluminum and in bronze. The purpose of these was unknown at the time, but a picture in 1981 that appeared in Der Freiwillige, the magazine for veterans of the Waffen SS revealed the purpose clearly. Since then, veterans of the Leibstandarte have supplied further information. The article actually asked them for information and opinions. The aforementioned son of the man who found them decided long after his father died to make them available to the collectors of the world. After all, they had merely sat in a corner of their plumbing business for all these years since the father had removed them as instructed by the U.S. Army officer in charge. We believe the officer believed the contents were indeed tiles as the outside invoice stated. So, after meeting this gentleman at a show in Stuttgart, I went with him to Potsdam outside of Berlin where I was shown the plaques. After seeing them and being very impressed I immediately negotiated and bought them and had them shipped home. Now I am able to offer these to you! The size of these great historical items is 24 ½ X 16 inches. The purpose of the plaques was to decorate spaces over doors, passageways, and mess halls within the complex and, outside, the aluminum ones would be used over entranceways. See the picture from Der Freiwillige, July-August 1981. The eagle used became at some point the official logo of the LAH. The shape of the helmets on the men and the odd shape of the SS runes are made in such an artistic way as to look 100 percent natural when viewed by a person looking up at the plaque. I have experimented with this and its completely true! Both the helmet and runes look exactly as the should when viewed looking upward. The post that you see one of these sculptures upon is the rear gate of the barracks where the now-famous eagle surmounted the motto of he SS, "Meine Ehre Heist Treue", "My Honor is Loyalty." The copies of all pictures will go with the purchase. Here may be the most dramatic articles of SS memorabilia ever offered on a web page.

  Victory Ring (Item LEIBSS 2-3; SS 3-3)

DESCRIPTION: This is the most beautiful ring of the Third Reich. It is fully enameled. These rings were crafted for the Waffen-, army, navy, and air force and were never officially issued, although battlefield pickups were actually noted. The rings were designed basically the same, but for the central design, which would be different as to branch of service. There was a special one for the -Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler (LAH). The rings were mostly found in April 1997 at the Stuttgart Military Show. There were hundreds of Third Reich pieces among thousands of pieces that included costume jewelry, religious jewelry, etc. We haggled over this for more than 2 hours and finally a deal was struck. Many of the items were prototypes and these Victory Rings were in that category, but there must have been a few released because we had seen at least two over the years before this cache was bought. We turned over all the non-Third Reich items to the antique dealer and this sufficiently helped to pay off the Third Reich items that we wanted. There were wedding rings of the , but civil examples, as well. There were also cameo brooches, religious crucifixes, etc. The great thing about it was that these companies were contracted to produce, repair, and design jewelry for famous personages such as Himmler, Goring, Gaulieter Wagner, etc., and there were some fantastic items recovered and purchased by me and two German dealers. Of all the Third-Reich rings that were acquired the victory rings are by far the most beautiful and stunning. They would have been issued to generals, field marshals, and Knights-Cross winners had the war ended in victory for the Reich. This particular one is an victory ring most probably the finest of all of them. It is marked '835' inside. It's in fine condition. These rings will be considered the most rare and sought-after pieces of Third-Reich memorabilia. They are at this point in time available to the entrepreneur or collector, but severely limited in number. This is the chance to purchase one of the finest and most beautiful of all Reich relics.

Hapag Line (Luxury Liner) LAH-SS Connection Grouping of China (Item LEIBSS 2-3; SS 19-5; GEN 6-5)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a grouping of dishes and bowls from the Hamburg-American Line. It had connections to the American Ship and Commerce Line, whose controlling interests were with Max Warburg and Prescott Bush, grandfather to George and great-grandfather to George W., all members of the infamous Skull and Bones Society. Bush, Harriman, and Warburg gained control of the Hamburg-American Line in 1920. In 1933, when Adolf Hitler assumed power in Germany, Warburg, who was a long-time advisor to Hjalmar Schacht, the Nazi Government’s Economic Minister and an executive in the Reichsbank, was selected by Prescott Bush to be the official representative of American Ship and Commerce Line on the board of the Hamburg-American Line (Hapag).Then-North German Lloyd Company merged with Hapag in Hamburg. Christian Beck, a longtime Harriman executive, was placed as manager of Freight and Operations in North America for this newly merged company called Hapag-Lloyd. At this point, SS security guards were now stationed on all ships of the company (enter the SS). Naturally, since communist agitation and possible vandalism was expected now that the thoroughly N.S. Line was established. It only followed that stringent security would be needed. Emil Hecfferich, an ardent National Socialist, was appointed Chairman of Hapag-Lloyd and he insisted that the security guards be selected from the Allgemeine-SS, thus the elite of that organization were recruited and a small group known as LAH (Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler) was attached to the individual ships sailing to America. It was in America that communist agitation was strongest and acts of sabotage were suspected to be afoot. The Hapag ships sailed into American and South American ports for years almost without incident except for a few commie bums trying to race aboard to slice the ropes and bring down the swastika flag. However, SS-LAH guards managed to grab them and dump them into the drink while Irish-American New York policemen laughed hilariously at the sight. The sailors and police officers enjoyed many a grand evening with American port officials and N.Y celebrities at special onboard and ashore. Politics seldom entered the conversations; however, operatives of the Gestapo and the American Secret Service always managed to keep an ear peeled as they infiltrated the get-togethers. The sailors of Hapag wore a typical uniform so long used by the German Navy. On their caps were bands that had the names of their usual destinations such as New York, etc. In August of 1942, Leo Crowley, the U.S. Alien Property Custodian ordered the seizure of all property of Hapag-Lloyd, but today, Hapag Lines is once more sailing the high seas and is one of the most prosperous shipping concerns going. They are mostly engaged in passenger cruise lines with the most luxurious liners afloat. Back to the SS-LAH; we have been told that these elite groups of guards lived in separate quarters within the ship’s hold and did not merge or even converse with the regular crew. That was left to the Gestapo. They had their own officers and were not subject to the jurisdiction of the officers of the ship. They never wore the black uniform of their corps. They dressed like passengers or crewmen or whatever was called for whether they were on deck or in port. They only wore the uniform, it is reported, when they celebrated (in private) such occasions as November 9th (the Putsch) or April 20th (the Führer’s birthday), and then only the officers and color guard wore them. Their mess hall was small, but looked like an SS honor hall decorated with pictures of Reichsführer-SS H. Himmler and, of course, the man who was their namesake, Adolf Hitler. Swastika flags and SS banners festooned the recreation room and the LAH library was filled with copies of Mein Kampf and other N.S. publications such as Der Schwartze Korps. Their dishes for table use were the standard Hapag Line crockery, but had the LAH logo at the crest of each dish, bowl, cup, saucer, etc. The particular pieces that we offer come from the collection of a British gentleman whose uncle brought them to the U.K. He was a British naval attaché and having the right connections, he was able to procure them from a seized Hapag ship in 1945. Naturally, he is not willing to have his name mentioned in connection with this incident or the acquisition of the article.
Description of the china:
The plates themselves are the issue style of the 1930’s recognized by their flo-blue and gold edging with the Nordic design throughout and interspersed with a north-star pattern repeated four times along the edges. In two places one can observe the logo of Hapag Lines in its distinctive shield configuration (see pictures). The china was produced by Hutschenreuther. The logo with lion and Selb Bavaria is by (L) Hutschenreuther and the mark is (under glaze) in green and according to the book Marks on German, Bohemian, and Austrian Porcelain:1710 to Present, by Robert E. Röntgen, this was the particular company logo of their porcelain from 1920 on. There is also a word “Fabrikdecoriert,” and we would construe the meaning of this to be that the frontal design was taken possibly from the curtains and especially the tablecloths that were used aboard the ships and complimented the tableware in design and (vice versa). Now, for the most important thing to be pointed out here: On each piece there is a symbol of the LAH in fancy gold lettering. This is done in the traditional manner that is recognized as the logo and symbol of the elite group Leibstandarte-SS Adolf Hitler. The words over glaze can be seen repeatedly in the previously mentioned book and this was standard throughout the porcelain industry and was often applied to china as a first idea or as an afterthought. Our own collection includes many items that were produced in this manner, but these items were produced in the days before automatic dishwashers. Now, thereby hangs the woeful tale. Somewhere along the line these dishes were obviously sentenced and carried to one of these awful contraptions and summarily cleaned. As a direct result the ‘LAH’ symbols that would have lasted indefinitely, had the dishes been hand washed, suffered atrociously as the ‘LAH’ was nearly obliterated on many of the pieces. The damage to the over-glaze pieces can be seen in direct proportion to how they would have been stacked in the dishwasher basket. For instance, in some cases, only the bottom of the letters are damaged or erased, while the top is evident. This comes from a smaller plate being stacked on top of a larger one thereby the larger plate covers part of the other while the other part is open to the ravages of the super stream of hot water. Looking at each plate, this becomes patently obvious. On almost every piece you can at least discern part of LAH design (see pictures) On a few, 90 percent of the logo is discernable. We will sell these items on a first-come, first-served basis, unless a knowledgeable and wise entrepreneur, or serious collector wishes to purchase all of them. At present we have:
   1. Dinner plate (limited); $136 each
   2. Luncheon plates; $125 each
   3. Soup bowls (limited); $145 each
   4. Dessert plates (limited); $110 each
Regardless of the condition of the LAH design these plates are nonetheless rare and desirable to collectors of N.S. relics. The Hapag Line was the pride and joy of the German nation and Führer and it was inseparable from the saga of the Third Reich. This was the Nazi Lines, pure and simple, and the involvement of world shakers and movers definitely embellishes the historical significance. Here is a chance to acquire articles that are of extreme and profound historical importance that touch the very fabric of yesterday’s continuum that we see unraveling again today. The entire set of 17 pieces can be sold all together for a considerable discount or we will break it up as listed. We are showing one of each type piece in our image section. Remember, only a few have the LAH design intact or partially intact-first come, first served.
   Footnote: The ship that it is thought the china came from was Albert Ballin of Hansa fame. Albert Ballin was built by Blohm & Voss, Hamburg in 1922 for the Hamburg-American Line. Her characteristics are as follows: 20,815 gross tons; length 602.4 feet; beam 78.74; two funnels; four masts, twin screws, speed 16 knots. Accommodations were provided for 250 first-class; 340 second-class, and 1,060 third-class passengers. She was launched on December 16, 1922 and on her maiden voyage (July 5, 1923) sailed from Hamburg to Southampton and New York. In 1934, she accidentally rammed and sank the North German Lloyd vessel (tugboat) Merkur with a loss of 7 lives. Later that year she was renamed Hansa under the NSDAP government. She began her last New York voyage on July 27, 1939, and then became a naval accommodation ship at Gotenhafen. On March 6, 1945, she was sunk by a mine off Warnemunde. She was raised and taken over by the Soviet Union, refurbished, and , yet, again, renamed. At the time of her scrapping in 1981, she was the oldest passenger ship around.

Bestecke (LAH) (Item LEIBSS 2-4; SS 29-1)

DESCRIPTION: Recently, while in Germany, we bought a 47-year accumulation of Bestecke, dinnerware or flatware, as it’s sometimes called throughout our pages. You will see various pieces that were collected by a German collector. That is all he collected --period -- but what a collection it was; something over a thousand pieces from the style used by the labor organizations to concentration camp tableware to the elite Leibstandarte-SS Adolf Hitler division’s formal-style pieces. We managed to buy a great deal of the various organizational types to include a very large group of LAH pieces. The collector was lucky enough to have bought all of what was left of the tableware (Besteck) that was left in packed crates from the Leibstandarte headquarters and barracks at Berlin-Lichterfelde. This was the main quarters and command post of the LAH in the capital city. There must have been several patterns used by different units because we purchased at least six patterns in the groupings. So, in most cases, we will offer one of each, but the collector can inquire about any more that might be available of the examples shown. In some cases we have multiples. The amazing thing about these items is that the LAH logo on each one looks hand-engraved, and just possibly, they are! But more likely there was a stamping device that had various size imprints that were used on them to give the famous “twisted” LAH pattern to the ends of the implements. A few early examples were also found at Lichterfelde with the simple SS runes instead of the marks hitherto mentioned. We believe that these were used earlier by the Leibstandarte canteen before the LAH logo was introduced. While they last these are considerably important, genuine LAH treasures and priced very competitively. They are also quite beautiful on their own.

SS Art Portfolio by Wolfgang Willrich in Embossed Cover (Item LEIBSS 2-5; SS 35-17; WAF 12-18)

DESCRIPTION: We proudly present an exquisite reduplication of Wolfgang Willrich’s folder of 12 prints produced in 1936 featuring the bust portraits of both Allgemeine and V.T. Troopers.

Therefore, we are extremely pleased to offer this magnificent reproduction that is accurate in every detail including size, sepia tones, and the finest printing quality available anywhere. We have a limited quantity available and because of the beauty and rarity of this portfolio, we are sure that it will become valuable in a short time; a real collector’s opportunity. The prints are individually presented and not bound (suitable for framing) and measure 11 1/2 x 16 1/2 inches with a page of the same dimensions containing a foreword by Heinrich Himmler concerning the importance of this set of prints to the ideology of the Nazi Movement. All are enclosed inside a heavy and handsome black folder boldly embossed with the SS runes and legend.

PRICE: $39.95 plus postage and handling -dealer inquiries solicited - very good lot prices available

A Marvelous New Book on the Allgemeine-SS (Item LEIBSS 2-7; SS 36-5)

DESCRIPTION: This is a fantastic book that has been sorely needed in the SS-collecting field. It’s a beautiful coffee-table presentation written by Ulric of England. The title is Meine Ehre Heisst Treue- -Inside the Allgemeine-SS 1925-1945 and, as its cover pronounces, is the most significant collection of Allgemeine-SS artifacts ever assembled in one book and, gentlemen, that is absolutely true and then some. It covers every aspect of this phenomenal organization with thousands of pictures and brilliant text. It abounds with images of uniforms, weapons, personalities, equipment, Allach porcelain, honor rings, inner organizations, et al. All are lavishly illustrated in great color and black-and-white photos and the author thankfully states that this authoritative work on the material culture diverts completely from any political or ethical approach, while focusing expressly on the aesthetic aspects shown in the uniforms and regalia of the Allgemeine-SS and their enigmatic magnetism. This is a 428-page large volume with nearly 2,000 rarely seen photos; in some cases published here for the first time. The book is divided into two parts: Part One explains the ritualistic elements within the , along with its methodology of schooling, leadership, and encroachment into various areas of the German society. It serves to put into context the extensive collection of uniforms, weapons, accoutrements, insignia, flags and other significant items that are shown in Part Two. Both parts are contained in this one beautiful book. In a place of honor (the opening page) we find the oath of the Allgemeine-SS recruits: “I swear to you Adolf Hitler the Führer and Chancellor of the Reich, my loyalty and courage. I vow to you and to the superiors appointed by you obedience onto death so help me God!” This was their oath and they lived up to it through thick and thin. Their service later as Waffen-SS soldiers was exemplary! They nearly finished off the Beast of Bolshevism, but in any case they stopped international Communism from spreading from the Urals to the coast of France. History will someday realize their true mission and agenda. Thanks again, Ulric!

PRICE: $110.00 plus shipping. THIS IS TRULY THE BEST!

 

Poster

 

Poster that Glorifies the Allgemeine- Unit Leibstandarte- Adolf Hitler (LAH) (Item LEIBSS 2-8)

DESCRIPTION: This large propaganda poster depicts an LAH soldier with sword standing guard over Germany. He bears the SS shield and above him is seen the sleeve title “Adolf Hitler.” The year is 1933. This was the year that the organization was being readied to be officially established in the autumn of 1934. This poster was in all probability to be displayed to enthuse the German public to adore the SS even more than it already did. When these elite soldiers of the Reich marched through village and town the crowds went spastic and the guards along the way had all they could do to hold back the enthusiastic people. If any elite force of stalwart warriors was more adored than these Schwarze Korps it would be hard to imagine. So, you can see in this poster the idealization of the superman image was carried. The poster is huge measuring 34 x 23 inches (86 x 58 cm) and the colors are still bright. There are small words on the bottom LAH SS 024 Prop. 61 033.01044. The poster is on hard-surface poster stock, reinforced paper.

Please ignore the white background under the poster; it is only a backdrop and is not with the poster.

DESCRIPTION: The photograph depicts eight troopers of the personal bodyguard unit for Adolf Hitler. They are depicted in Waffen-SS uniform with their Mauser 98 rifles while a master sergeant calls out commands. The back of the photo has the caution stamp having to do with the credit line, and part of a German attachment explaining that this is an official LAH review. We do concur that this is a super great and rare photo of the “elite of the elite.”

Early SS Trumpet Banner; Probably SS-LAH (Item LEIBSS 2-10; SS 38-26)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a trumpet banner that is typical of the style used by the elite -Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler. As early as the 1920s the piping on flags, uniforms, etc., invariably had silver cord intertwined with black. This stood apart from piping on SA or NSKK paraphernalia and always was distinguishable even in the Kampfzeit (struggle for power). The banner is double sided and its center construction with swastika is in three parts overlaid. The swastika is separately adhered on the white background and this is placed upon the red cloth that is trimmed with black-and-white ropelike piping. The exact same work is repeated on the reverse side. (Double sided). Four brass attachment rings are seen at the top. All along the edges of three sides there is white fringe. The banner is very well made and heavy and it’s in great condition throughout. It measures about 13 x 15 inches not counting the fringe. The fringe all around the three sides is about 2 inches long. Here is an item from the NS time of struggle and the forming up of the Allgemeine- whose honor was loyalty—“MEINE EHRE HEIST TREUE!.”

SS-LAH Formal Mess Hall Plate by Bauscher-Weiden (Item LEIBSS 2-11; MESSHALLPORC 1-21)

DESCRIPTION: These are the official fine porcelain dishes used at ceremonial high dinners sponsored by the Reichsführer Heinrich Himmler for his elite guard division of the Allgemeine-SS. The porcelain firm of Bauscher-Weiden, a firm known for fine dinnerware, manufactured this particular dish. You will note that the golden symbol of the LAH appears under the glaze at the top of the plate. These are incredibly rare. You can find any amount of normal Wehrmacht mess-hall porcelain with various company logos and eagles and other symbols used in military mess halls, but to find these absolutely gorgeous and important SS versions is certainly difficult. We had the good fortune to find three of them marked by prestigious porcelain manufacturers. This Bauscher-Weiden dish is a particularly fine example of this rare dinnerware that was used at places like Bad-Töltz and Berlin Lichterfelde. The plate measures 9¼ inches in diameter and is in perfect condition with some wear on the bottom where it sat on a table. The edges are trimmed in navy blue sitting upon a gold ring. The LAH is in golden script. The maker’s logo is clearly seen on the bottom of the plate.

PRICE: $350.00

SS-LAH Formal Mess Hall Plate (Item LEIBSS 2-12; MESSHALLPORC 1-22)

DESCRIPTION: Here is another formal mess hall plate as used for special occasions such as a grand ball sponsored by the Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler. The plate measures 9½ inches in diameter. This one is by the famed firm of “KPM” (Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Berlin). This particular one shows some usage in the fact that the blue and gold edge rim is worn from continual usage. However, there are no chips, cracks, or abrasions. The script-style “LAH” at the top in gold leaf is perfect as is the KPM logo with crown. These pieces were often used at ceremonial dinners at Bad Tölz and Berlin Lichterfelde.

SS-LAH Formal Mess Hall Dinner Plate by KPM (Item LEIBSS 2-13; MESSHALLPORC 1-23)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a perfect dinner plate for the Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler elite units. These plates were used in formal occasions such as state dinners sponsored by the offices of Reichsführer Heinrich Himmler. As we have said in the two items above, these plates measure 9½ inches in diameter and bear the golden insignia of the elite corps. This particular plate is in mint condition and has the logo of the KPM company in Berlin. These fine porcelain pieces were made exclusively for the Allgemeine-SS LAH. Several German porcelain manufacturers made other porcelain pieces for the Wehrmacht soldiers, but only KPM and Bauscher-Weiden made mess hall porcelain for the SS. This plate is considered extremely rare and is a historically important relic of the SS.
