German Police Dagger (Item POL 1-4)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a very fine example of the German Police sidearm in super-fine condition throughout blade by Clement & Jung Solingen (matching numbers). Dagger and sheath with the stamped police unit letters and numbers S. Sch.T.462. This weapon has the original carry frog and knot or portepee. This knot is slightly frayed because of wear on the uniform, but it's "there." This is considered a bayonet although there is no bayonet mortise. With mortise they could be ordered by the various departments. They were usually ordered like that by police order teams that were in parade dress. Without this they were worn by officers on everyday duty We don't like to use the word mint, but this is close to the 'M' word-blade pristine! This is as nice as they get.

PRICE:  SOLD

German Police Translator Armband (Item POL 1-6)

It is printed on cotton and has an eagle and swastika stamp near the right-top corner (indistinguishable). It measures 7 ½ X 4 inches. Translators are very necessary to good police investigation when on foreign soil.

German Police Shako (Item POL 1-7)

DESCRIPTION: This is the helmet that was a transition piece worn for a very short time by the police of the city of Berlin. Traditionally, the police officers of this city always wore black uniform trappings. This continued for a time, even though the rest of the nation's police went over to the green felt-style shako. The Berlin officers continued to wear the black. This was until the leadership went from Göring to Himmler. After that, the Reichsführer-SS and Politzei insisted on national standardization and the green, felt Shako was adopted, even in der Haupstadt (Berlin). This particular Shako is in the shiny, almost patent-leather finish with the Third Reich eagle prominently displayed at the front. The national colors as seen on the cockade are bright and clearly marked "F.W. Assmann 8 Söhne Ludensheid." Assmann worked throughout the Third Reich period. The helmet has the sliding air hole device with screened openings. The overall condition is near mint. We do not know the size. It is a very sharp collectible piece and historically very important to the saga of the N.S. Kampfzeit.

Five-medal Bar (Police) (Item POL 1-8)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a 5-medal bar that was owned by an officer of the Austrian Police, who had served his country in the army and the police. Besides the Iron Cross 2nd Class WWI, he had earned the War Service Cross, the 15-year Army Service Cross of Germany, the Austrian Merit Medal with swords for combatant, and the Nazi Long-service Medal for police service 25 years. Evidently, this man was in police services before his enlistment in the Austrian military. One of the nicest things about this bar is that it is accompanied with two other service bars. One of them shows the Third Reich War Service Medal with swords that he undoubtedly won after the Anschlus of Austria.

 Disk of the Nazi Secret Police (Item POL 1-9; WEHR 2-7; SS 3-1)

DESCRIPTION: This is a 100-percent genuine disc of the Geheime Feldpolizei, Germany's plain-clothed military police formed in July 1939 by order of the Generaloberst Wilhelm Keitel (see Osprey book #213 German Military Police Units 1939-1945). These officers had many duties that included counterespionage, countersaboage, detection of treasonable activities, and counterpropaganda. They also assisted the army legal system in investigations for courts-martial. At times, circumstances allowing or required, they wore uniforms. There has been much hullabaloo about German police discs lately, but all that notwithstanding here is a genuine die-struck piece that can stand any test administered to it. This disc is said to be exceptionally rare in the aforementioned book, and it surely is. About 1 3/4" diameter.

 Austrian Police Helmet (Item POL 1-14)

DESCRIPTION: This M-16 helmet is the type used by the Landespolizeigruppe General Göring. It has screened air vents and a light parade finish. See the lower helmet on page 247 of Ludwig Baer’s book, The History of the German Steel Helmet: 1916-1945. This is the exact style used by the Austrian Police before amalgamation into the Göring-directed police formations. After the Anschlus these helmets were issued to police units with the new insignia. The outside shell of the helmet has its original finish and is in great shape. The padded 3-piece liner is there, but torn in places, and the chinstrap is broken and the buckle is missing. Still, this is a fairly rare helmet and is deserving of an honored place in a good helmet collection.

Sipo Club; Instrument for Criminal and Communist Control (Item POL 1-15; SS 23-7)

DESCRIPTION:    This is the original spring club. Since the end of the war it has been copied and used by police forces all over the world. It has been called the most effective police weapon ever devised for (close encounters of the ‘rodent’ kind). A member of our staff was nostalgically moved when this one came in since he very effectively used an original one when he was a police officer up north. When moonlighting in bars that were particularly rough this club often came in very handy. It’s not used in normal everyday police work because the ball on the end strikes the head with the force of a bullet when swung forcibly with the spring action. Crowd control is often enhanced when the troublemaking leader goes down for the count with a face full of the red stuff. This weapon is excellent for effecting that result very quickly. Some of the copies were made much the same, but most of them today have a fixed stiff shaft as they are drawn from the metal tube. This is much less effective, but probably more humane. The major difference that comes to sight is the letters ‘SIPO’ on the end of the shaft cap. Newer ones and copies don’t have this lettering. SIPO stands for the first and last parts of the word Sicherheitspolizei (Security Police). After 3 years as the Internal Information and Espionage Service of the NSDAP, the (SD) Sicherheitsdienst joined with the Secret State Police Geheime Stadts Polizei (GESTAPO) and the Kriminalpolizei (KRIPO) to form the Security Police Sicherheitspolizei (SIPO). It was Himmler’s and Heydrich’s ambition that the SD should swallow the GESTAPO and KRIPO. It remained for the most part an ununiformed unit when doing fieldwork, but there were also uniformed detachments for special operations. These were tough guys who used tough measures against the Reich’s enemies. Later, the famous Einsatzgruppen were formed from SIPO functionaries. They were sent to the front to put down the bloody partisan activity in Russia and the Balkans. So here we have an original SIPO club; one of most effective in-fighting weapons ever developed. The length closed is about 7 inches. Fully open it’s nearly 17 inches long. Our man remembers that the original one he had was blued in finish. This one may have had a blued finish as well, but hand use tends to remove the blue finish and a few bad guys’ heads help as well. This piece is completely sound, but the springs are a bit bent. This evidences that the SIPO officer put it to much use in its day. This is extremely rare and seldom seen outside museums. It’s 100 percent guaranteed original.

Book Deutsche Ringen um den Osten, German Struggle for the East (Item POL 1-16; WEHR 19-11)

DESCRIPTION:    Here is one great book that spells out the German agenda of Lebenstraum. There are 163 fine black-and-white pictures and text tracing Germany’s expansionist aims from the time of the Teutonic knights at Marienburg to the Russo-German Pact of 1939. The book was presented as a congratulatory prize from the teachers and classmates to a student they wished to honor. The school is the First Police School Class C of 1942-43 at the protectorate police establishment in Moravia. The signatures are all Czechs, who worked as policemen for the German liberators in the 1940s. The chief policeman and Reich protector of Bohemia and Moravia in former Czechoslovakia was none other than Obergruppenführer-SS Reinhard Tristan Heydrich. He was murdered by British-trained assassins on May 27, 1942. Many Czechs served in the German police formations fighting against the Czech communist resistance movement. The book has 355 pages and measures 9 x 11 1/2 inches and is in very good condition. This is an extremely important historically and considered rare, even in Germany.

 Hasso the Police Dog (Item POL 1-17)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a little boy’s book that was presented to Herr Karl Heinz at Christmastime of 1942, by perhaps his girlfriend Annemarie Helmbold. It is a 225-page book of animal tales for children with illustrations. We thought it interesting and bought it in Germany because of repeated requests for service-dog-related items. It’s also an interesting item to collectors of German police articles, if for the cover picture alone.

PRICE: $65.00
