1936-Pattern Shako for City Police Officer (Schupo) (Item POL 2-1)

DESCRIPTION:    This is the famous shako or Tschako, the distinctive helmet of the German Police worn during the 1920s and until 1945. The shape and construction is similar to the World War One Jäger helmets and Scharfshützen helmet. The jaunty style is probably, in our opinion, the sharpest looking police helmet of history. The entire uniform of the Schupo (Schützpolizei, protective police) is militarily great! It was in 1936 that the shown shako was adopted with green cloth-covered body and all other fittings in jet black (strap, top, brim). This differed from the rural police Wachtmeister where all the above was in brown color. At the front was the national eagle emblem with swastika and an oak-leaf cluster open at the top. Centered above the shield was an oval color cockade slotted in a groove. The one we offer here is in grade-A condition and has a label inside that shows it to have been supplied by Maury & Co. in Offenbach on Main that was founded in 1820. There is a size also noted as ’55.’ Even though moths love this sort of cloth there are miraculously no moth holes and that is highly unusual indeed. This is just about the nicest example we have ever seen, other than the rural police example found on our pages. These are exceedingly rare today, but our price is very reasonable, considering that any we have ever seen on the web were either eaten up by moths with large gaping holes or in 50 percent of the cases missing the practically-impossible-to-replace Kokarde. This is the best you may ever see.

Berlin Police Shako (Item POL 2-2a)

DESCRIPTION:    This is another Berlin Police example and its description is just about exactly the same as the one above at POL 2-2. The only noticeable difference is the Feldabzeichen, or the oval badge insert above the eagle, is with a different arrangement of the black, red, and where colors within. Reason? Different districts or precincts??? This one is also in fine shape and a somewhat larger size.

1936-Pattern Shako (Tschako) for Rural Gendarmerie (Police Officer, otherwise known as ‘Schupo’) (Item POL 2-3)

DESCRIPTION:    This is the famous shako, the distinctive helmet of the German Police worn during the 1920s up until 1945. The shape and construction is similar to the World War One Jäger helmets and Scharfshützen helmet. The jaunty style is probably, in our opinion, the sharpest looking police helmet of history. The entire uniform of the Schupo (Schützpolizei, protective police) is militarily great! It was in 1936 that the shown shako was adopted with green cloth-covered body and all other fittings in either jet black for city police and brown for rural police. The strap and top brim on this one is brown because it is for the rural Gendarmerie Wachtmeister. At the front is the national eagle emblem with swastika and an oak-leaf cluster. Open at the top centered above this shield was an oval, color cockade slotted in a groove. The one we offer here is in grade-A condition and has a label inside that shows it to have been supplied by the Hans Römer Company of Neu-Ulm on the Danube, and it is labeled a ‘genuine fiber’ Tschako. It’s quite a small size. Even though moths love this sort of cloth there are miraculously only two tiny pinhole-sized moth holes; almost totally unnoticeable, and this is highly unusual, indeed. This is just about the nicest example of this style headgear we have ever encountered, other than the city police example found on our pages. These shakos are exceedingly rare and the Rural Police ones almost never show up at all. Most any we have ever seen offered on the internet were either badly moth-eaten or were missing the Kokarde that is practically impossible to replace. All in all, this may be the best one you may ever see.

Police Officer’s Parade Shako with Dust Cover (Item POL 2-3a)

DESCRIPTION:    This to me is one of the most beautiful pieces of headgear of the Third Reich. You can see the enlisted model of this one at item POL 2-3 above. This, however, is the rare officer’s model that just never comes up for sale or when one does it is usually either in bad condition or priced much higher than what we offer this one in great shape (for a reasonable price). This piece is offered with the ultra-rare dust cover worn over the helmet in inclement weather. We have never seen one offered. This helmet has the eagle shield that is three times as thick as the enlisted ranks’ models above. The helmet was worn with a horsetail plume on some occasions and without it for others. The chinstrap is scaled with bright, frosted, silver plating, as is the shield. The national badge, or pom-pom, is in beautiful brocade with the national colors. The liner which is similar to the spike helmets of German army officers of World War I is in the silk material. This is the only part of this very rare helmet that shows any significant wear from use. Remember, those items were actually worn! There are also two places where some tough moth took a couple of bites in the green felt covering, and there is some white residue on the wreath that spreads into the felt cloth on the left side of the eagle’s wing. We took a damp cloth to it and it does seem to diminish this nicely; however, the sheer overall beauty of this helmet outshines any very minor problems such as this. The dust cover has some faded-out markings (not discernible), but is in 100 percent immaculate shape and has slots that correspond with an opening for the pom-pom in the air vents at the helmet’s sides. The cover will not go on and tightly fasten probably because a shrinkage of the sewn-in inserts that catch the back and front brim. But it is doubtful that the officer would have bothered to fully secure it in full fashion since it was merely a functional device and certainly no part of a normal parade function. However, to have that with this helmet is really a rarity. So, this is our offering to the collecting public. This is extremely rare, extremely gorgeous, and a reasonable price.

German Third Reich Polizei Shako for Senior Officers (Item POL 2-3b)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a great Polizei helmet (shako) as used by the metropolitan police. Unlike some of the ones pictured above on this page that were trimmed in brown for rural police, this one is with black trim for the metropolitan police. As I have said, I believe these police shakos to be the most beautiful pieces of headgear of the Third Reich. This one that we offer here is the rare senior-officer’s model similar to the one at POL 2-3a above, but without the inclement-weather cover. This one is in practically immaculate condition with a tiny bit of scuffing along the bottom edges and brim. We have never seen one in better general condition; even the liner is in beautiful shape. It has the label of Hans Römer of Neu-Ulm in the crown (inside). Much of the description of these ranking officers’ shakos can be seen in the narrative above at POL 2-3a. We have mentioned that for parade functions, a white horsetail plume was worn with this shako. The very comfortable collector outlook on these shakos comes from the fact, unlike most other items of N.S. and Wehrmacht headgear, these police pieces have never been reproduced and because of their very special construction they never will be! Condition – Excellent Plus-Plus!

PRICE: $1,795.00

German Metropolitan-Police Shako for Patrolman (Gendarmerie); 1936 Pattern (Item POL 2-3c)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a beautiful shako of the 1936-pattern German police departments (Gendarmerie). For a good description of these shakos, look further up on this page at the various narratives and images; especially the one at POL 2-3. The description is nearly the same except this one is for the metropolitan police, where the one above is for the rural police. That one has brown trim, while this one has black trim. This one is also in grade-A condition and is by the same company, Hans Römer in Neu-Ulm. Fortunately the moths found this one distasteful and there is only one very small bite at the rear above the back visor. As I said previously, the hungry insect probably was afraid of being arrested and charged with assault on an officer of the law! I said in the write up at POL 2-3 that that particular one was probably the best one you might ever see. Well, I am now proven to have been too hasty, because here is one actually even better and I didn’t think that was possible. It is a small size, but a great-looking example of the sharpest piece of headgear that was produced in the N.S. Reich.

Secret Document signed by Heydrich (Item POL 2-5; SS 25-6)

DESCRIPTION:    Reinhard Heydrich, as Chief of the German SD Police, sends this special order concerning the investigations of criminal matters. The gist of this prodigiously important letter is a division of interest and political sensitivity in new directives concerning criminals and special investigations. What should be under the duties in this regard to the Geheimen Staatspolizei (GESTAPO), or the Kriminalpolizei (KRIPO), or the Sicherheitspolizei (SIPO), and there is some mention of prisoners of war coming under the supervision of the GESTAPO concerning certain matters? Can you imagine any subject more important? The letter which is the original archive copy originated in Berlin on January 30, 1940, from the office of Heinrich Himmler as Reichsführer-SS and Chief of the German Police. There is a stamp citing a special request (Durch besonderen Baten). Also there is a stamp that proclaims ‘Geheim’ or ‘Secret.’ It’s directed toward all directive centers for the various security police and all high SS and police officials and it is marked (concerns) Betrifft—Neven Strafbestmungen (New Penal Provisions). The Reinhard Heydrich signature is over a stamp with eagle and swastika with some indiscernible wording, but ending with Sicherheitspolizei and the signing is typed first ‘Heydrich’ and then hand signed. This is an incredibly rare document as Heydrich-signed items are extremely rare and the importance of this particular hand-signed order cannot be easily estimated.

Police Helper’s Armband (Item POL 2-6)

DESCRIPTION:    This would be the complete uniform of the Auxiliary Police. Hermann Göring, in his office as Interior Minister of Prussia, issued a decree on 27 February 1933, raising an auxiliary police (Hilfpolizei) (HIPO) made up of volunteers from the Prussian SA, SS, and Stahlhelm. It was armed and had a strength of 50,000, thus doubling the exiting police force in Prussia. It was worn on whatever uniform they had. This arm brassard in various style was worn signifying their service to this group. They joined with regular police units to hunt down and arrest suspected communists and other enemies of the state. See our picture of the SA man with a police officer (Schupo). The units were officially disbanded in July 1933, but were reorganized as auxiliaries in occupied (Liberated) territories for the entire length of the war.

Album of Pictures (Item POL 2-7; SS 30-5)

DESCRIPTION: Help! Okay, we admit that sometimes even we need help on identification of some of these items. We are rather stumped on this one. We show here a few pictures of men in uniform hoping that some of you out there might recognize the pictures and tell us what we have here. In back of the album are some great pictures of young men of the NS Agrarian Association (Farmer’s Group) with their distinctive flag. Is it possible that the uniformed men are also of this group (Reichsnärstand)? The album comprises 65 pictures in a petite size of 7.5 x 5 inches. Just about all the pictures are personnel and uniform. These must be rare, as we have not seen these uniforms before.

Police Slotted Bayonet/Dagger (Item POL 2-8)

DESCRIPTION:    This is for the Metropolitan Police with black scabbard and frog. It has the desirable matching numbers so sought after by advanced collectors. SB 12882 cross guard and scabbard throat, the blade is stone mint and is by WKC: Weyersberg, Kirshbaum CIE Solingen. This appears on the back of the blade and the Ritterkopf, or knight’s head, appears on the front. This one is the slotted version made for special police review. These are found far less frequently than the unslotted version. The slotted version was issued to special officers who formulated the honor companies which were designated for parades and official review. They would make a great visage when assembled with their Mauser 98s all with bayonets fixed and in parade formation. This one is exceptional.

Luftschutzpolizei Helmet (very rare!) (Item POL 2-12)

DESCRIPTION:    Here is one of the really hard-to-get German helmets. It is the Air Raid Protection Police helmet. It has a blackish-blue-satin coloration and is a double-decal helmet with the police eagle to one side and the swastika with national colors on the other. This is a “beaded” helmet (this refers to the raised band that encircles the helmet’s entire shape). These police units had their hands full during the dark days toward the war’s end. Their first function was to help persons who had been injured in the horrible firestorms that engulfed the cities and hamlets. They also had to prevent looting by so-called forced foreign workers that now ran rampant through what was a civilization completely unknown to them and now was at the mercy of all types of foreign brigands. The police had to enforce fire regulations and this was often a very dangerous job because of the horrible impact that these murderous raids brought about. It was also their responsibility to take into custody and protect those allied airmen who often were shot down while doing their acts of murder. They had to protect them against the just retribution of the German folk and surely there would have been many lynchings had it not been for the Luftschutzpolizei. This is a documented fact! So much for the so-called bad Nazi police, right? History is written by the victors and unfortunately they write the history of the losers, as well! The helmet is in crisp, great condition with the paint all intact and original. It has its strap and original liner. Only the tie string that gathered up the liner is missing. It probably is a German size 58 or so. This is a rare find and priced very reasonably.

Police Dagger Model 1939 (Seitengewehr) (Item POL 2-13)

DESCRIPTION:    Here is a police dagger in extra fine condition. It has the brown-colored scabbard (for rural non-city police). It is by E. & F. Horster, who made the first of these and had the original contract with the German police. This has matching numbers and is in immaculate condition except for a tiny scratch or two on the leather of the scabbard. The blade is in about mint condition. This type weapon is generally called a bayonet, even though there is no slot or mortise. This great-looking weapon is strong looking and beautifully designed. It was used for parade dress, but was commonly worn by officers on the beat as well. It’s rather intimidating; even more so than a nightstick, I'd say. On the back strap are tiny nicks that are invariably seen on these daggers. This occurs because the police officers used their Seitengewehr often as a hammer to tack up local notices and legal regulations on notice boards and buildings. This is usually the case and can be expected on all daggers of this type. This is a very fine example of a rare, NS edged weapon.

Senior Police Officer’s Dagger Model 1939 (Rare, Special Lightweight Version) (Item POL 2-13a)

DESCRIPTION:    Here is a police dagger sometimes referred to as dress bayonet even though it has no bayonet slot. This particular piece is the model for higher-ranking officers of the police and is significantly shorter than the normal police sidearm like the one shown above at Police 2-13. The grip with side plates in Hirschhorn (staghorn) fits perfectly and the metallic furniture is in high-grade aluminum. The eagle’s head is not bayonet slotted. The wreathed eagle in the center of the grip is also in aluminum and shows a little wear in the side that would receive a bit of rubbing from the officer’s sleeve in constant contact by daily use. The eagle-head pommel is bright as is the crossguard. The blade is bright and not scratched in any way and bears the logo of “WKC” with the knight’s helmet. “WKC” are the initials of Weyersberg Kirschbaum & Co. of Solingen. The scabbard fittings are bright and unmarred. The leather scabbard is slightly worn except for a very slight bulge in the bottom-quarter of the backside (almost unnoticeable). The original little leather pad between the blade and the crossguard is intact. The dagger in its scabbard measures 15 inches long. The blade measures 9 inches long; much shorter than the regular enlisted versions that often measure as long as 18 inches. The scabbard is in black color indicating that the policeman that carried it was of city (metro) police. These special officer models were made to the specifications as promulgated by regulation, but since privately purchased, they bore no numbers on them. This is indeed a rare find for you and for us.

This is one of the most beautiful enameled badges of the Reich. It measures 2 1/2 inches high by 1 1/2 inches wide and looks to be genuine silver. It was made by Deutscher and Sohn in Munich and is so marked.

The Ring of the German Police (Item POL 2-16)

DESCRIPTION:    This beautiful ring is the one ring that has been copied the most. While companies like “Outpost Rings” sells a copy of it labeled as a reproduction, other more unscrupulous dealers sell it as “Original”. The obvious is apparent however when the real thing is placed beside the copy. The original that we offer is first of all made back in the 1930’s or 1940’s from steel dies while the repros are turned out in “lost wax” molds. There is also a copy out there in “cyber coo-coo land” that has a presentation inscription inside Also the repros have SS runes inside as well. The Polish and Latuian scallywags have attempted to copy many of our originals, but thanks goodness they can be counted on to screw them up in more ways than one. The originals cannot be duplicated because these malefactors have only managed to produce some deplorable attempts at copying our original Third Reich pieces. Now as to this Police ring it features the later version of the Police eagle as adopted in 1938. It has of course the wreath of oak leaves with even larger oak leaves supporting the sides. It was struck back then in steel dies and in genuine 835 silver and the silver mark is inside the band. The detail is incredible unlike the forgery attempts. Many collectors consider it to be the most N.S. looking design among all other NS rings. It certainly is beautiful and dramatic looking. The open work used in the design goes far to enhance its beauty. We are proud to offer this genuine piece of Third Reich history.

Book “Die Polizei” (The Police) (Item POL 2-17)

DESCRIPTION:   This is a soft cover book of 240 pages dedicated to the saga of the German Police in the time of the Third Reich. It is highly illustrated with great pictures, a lot of them showing that the police officer is friend to the citizenry and especially to the German children. He was their Freund und Helfer (Friend and Helper). The book covers everything from the role of the street cop to the forensic labs and detective services. The Gestapo and Kripo are also touched upon. All the services that came under the duties of the police are herein demonstrated. The involvement with the fire depts., crowd control (communist control), classroom lectures, marine control, traffic control, and investigation of accident scenes, and unlike the police position in today’s U.S. the emphases was upon protection of the public rather than the protection of the state. Contrary to orthodox but incorrect public opinion along alleged historical lines. Such illumanaries as Dr. Wilhelm Frick, Heinrich Himmler, and Reinhard Heydrich are seen within the pages. This is truly a magnificent archival treasure about a subject not extensively covered in other journals. Size is 8 ¾ inches and ¾ inch thick.

A thankful appreciation card from Heinrich Himmler (Item POL 2-18; HH 4-6)

DESCRIPTION: In June of 1936 Adolf Hitler appointed Heinrich Himmler as Reichfuhrer SS and completed the centralization of the various criminal police departments in Germany into the Reich criminal police office (Reich Kriminalpolizeiamt) Himmler appointed in turn Reinhard Heydrich chief of the secondary police main office (Hauptamtsicherheitspolizei); this office includes both the Gestapo and criminal.office of the SD and this also centralized the uniformed police forces, known as the order police (Ordnungs Polizei) under SS General Kurt Daluege. The card that measures 6 x 4 is framed contained in the frame is a picture of Himmler, dressed in the  Allgemeine SS uniform that he would have wore in 1936. The picture is not original. Please ignore the bluish cast to the picture. The close-up of his face is the actual tone of the picture. This is an ultra important document, in that it is an appreciation message from the Reichsfuhrer to some person for sending a letter or telegram to him congratulation him on his appointment as head of all the German Police. Considering the nature of the subject. This is a very scarce and prodigiously important document

German Polizei Official’s Dress-Parade Shako (Item POL 2-20)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a German police fiber Tschako (shako). This is a dress-parade model and has the badge that is three times as thick as those shakos the enlisted Gendarmerie used. Unlike the enlisted-man’s model the official’s helmet has the national eagle and oak-leaf cluster mounted above a scaled chinstrap (silver colored). This shako has no manufacturer’s label in the inside crown as many of them do; probably because it was issued in 1936 during the time that Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler decided that he wanted to show no favoritism to any supplying companies that provided issue equipment to the SS or police. That essentially is the reason that the 1936-issue chained SS-officers’ daggers have no maker’s mark on the blade. For a good explanation of this type police headgear go further up on this page to Item POL 2-3a and you can see that we go into more detail about these great pieces of Third-Reich headgear. See also POL 2-2a on this page. This model with black trim, of course, was for the metropolitan police, while the one at POL 2-3a is trimmed brown because it’s for the rural or country police. This one is in great condition throughout—inside and out. The moths took one bite right between the air vents on the left side and then decided to abandon their intended dinner (probably in fear of being arrested!). Seldom do you ever see one of these in this condition and seldom do we ever see a Polizei official’s shako available anywhere—at shows or on the various military sites. They are truly that rare! You could not possibly find one better. We think that these pieces are the handsomest of all the headgear of the Third Reich and this one is an excellent textbook example of the species.
