An SA Stormtrooper Doll (Item SA 14-1; NSTOYS 1-3)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a real rarity. An original period doll in the attire of an SA”Sturmabteilung” trooper. This little guy (Hans) is about one foot high.  His clothing is completely original and handmade. The trousers made of cotton, have about 4 tiny moth holes. The shirt is in perfect shape. The little swastika armband is a bit short in the back. The family who owned the doll didn’t wish to discard it after the war but the armband was removed at that time. (Of course!) The owner had two dolls like this one. The other one was a bit smaller in stature. In any case the armbands were hidden away and only recently the one that Hans is wearing was rediscovered found in the pages of a book. The problem, although slight, was the armband for our Hans was missing but the one for the other doll (Fritz) who was given away back in the 60’s was there so the folks put the shorter armband on the doll we bought and it looks fine although a bit short in the back. The arms are movable, the belt and boots and cross strap are of leather. The head revolves. His little blue eyed countenance is what would be expected of a fine young Aryan youngster. He is the miniature personification of the people of the ‘Bewegung” (movement). Sometimes various SA headquarters in a district would have a showcase that mounted on a wall or sat in the vestibule of the building and in these cases would be found various articles that were meaningful to the ‘Sturm” (unit) -- a little SA man like this would fit perfectly in such a display as these dolls were not playthings. They were exhibited items for sure. Tiny uniforms were made and given to tots and pictures were snapped of these little boys who proudly posed with the SA ranks for special photos for propaganda purposes and sometimes just for amusement value. Many of these little guys got to be photographed with the SA leadership and often with the Fuhrer himself. The SA were an especially tough and hardy lot but also had a sense of humor and charm and this doll summoned up those feelings as practically nothing else does. We show an SA dagger next to ‘Hans” for viewer perspective.  

PRICE: $1,400.00 Very rare and very reasonably priced.

DESCRIPTION: Here is one of the fine jewelry pieces that we acquired in Germany. Do see our narrative about how we acquired all of the vintage rings and silver insignia on our home page. This is the typical ring design as used on so many of the SS and SA rings. The ring shank has the usual two step side design. The top bears the symbol of the Sturm Abteilung (SA). These were of course the Storm troopers commonly called the “Brown Shirts”.  The rough and ready corps of street fighters who protected the N.S. Party Leaders from attacks from the left, Reds, Spartacus agitators, and other leftist thugs.The top of the ring measures about ½ inch with the SA symbol backed by brown enamel. This is a 100% original SA ring and is historically important but never actually worn. So it is in mint condition. It is marked inside the shank 835, which is the silver content mark. A very handsome and striking ring indeed. Die Fahne Hoch!

Fantastic SA Presentation Dagger (Item SA 14-7)

DESCRIPTION: Here is, in our opinion, an SA dagger that ranks up there with the high leaders and chained models. No, it’s not going to bring as much as some of them. But think about the importance that it meant to the presenters and presented recipient. This was a labor of dedicated comradeship personified. It really is a masterpiece that shows skilled craftsmanship at its zenith, we believe that the weapon was entirely handmade after the blade was purchased from a Solingen factory. It was presented on January 1, 1942 to an SA Oberscharfuhrer Nagel on his 65th birthday by the SA Standarte 232/21 in the town of Wittingen 7.1.42.  Oberscharfuhrer is translated as senior squad leader. These were usually older former military men who imparted their knowledge and know-how to the younger recruits, sort of a Master Sergeant in boot camp. This rank existed between 1932 and 1945; evidently the Standarte members thought very highly of this man to have commissioned such a beautiful prize for presentation to him on his birthday. Obviously the gentleman was a hunter as evidenced by the hunting motif expressed on the grip and blade throughout. The work is very different and the entire shape is different than the regular Hirschfanger (Hunting knife) more readily found. It is really not a Hirschfanger at all. It is obviously custom designed and custom worked with features that are not encountered. In other words completely unique!  Obviously the men of the SA Standarte hoped to obtain something of note for their Chief. Something that he could be conspicuously proud of, an outstanding art piece without comparison, and they certainly did meet their goal. This is without a doubt the most stunning presentation dagger we have ever seen. It really has no competition out there for sheer beauty and high art. The blade is ‘hand engraved’ not acid etched from an established pattern that would have been used repeatedly. Here are original designs employing wild boar scenes as they cavort down the length of the blade that is also covered with engraved oak leaves and acorns all assembled and skillfully etched by a Master engraver. In one sequence, two of the “Wilde Schweine” are locked in mortal combat. This is completely an innovative sequence and appears in no other dagger that we have ever seen or heard of!

The grip is ivory or possibly fine finished bone of some kind. The center of the cross guard on one side has a medallion with the face of a tusked boar and the other side has a fierce bear. These are also original concepts. The ends of the cross guard are in the shape of hunting dog heads. The raised and incised oak leaves sculpted in brass are also outstanding, the crown has an acorn that stands singularly and regally and again totally innovative in this form. So, now the collecting field has a recently found masterpiece of an edged weapon to now join the ranks of collector’s treasures. There is no scabbard perhaps there never was one this was not a piece for practical usage, it was strictly for presentation to an officer, gentleman and friend but also it was a challenge in a way to see if the men of the Standarte could design such a positively unique high art specimen. Well, they succeeded I’d say and we at Germania are very proud to offer it at this time.

S.A. Lederhosen (Item SA 14-8)

DESCRIPTION: Lederhosen is the German word used for leather breeches. They can either be shirt or knee length. They are typical Bavarian men's clothing. Formerly, lederhosen were worn for hard physical work widespread among Germanic men of the whole Alpine regions, to include Austria and the Tyrol. Because they are so typical of the region where the National Socialists movement orginiated, they became part of the official uniform of some of the Brownshirt SA Storm Troopers of the mountain regions. Such a group was the SA Hochland Standarte and the lederhosen that we offer was the uniform property of that tough and colorful Sturm Abteilung Gruppe. It is important to note that actual leather lederhosent were worn when mountain climbing and other rough sports in the turn of the century. Garments that had the look of the traditional leathers were made in other materials (such as cloth). These were more condusive to wear, yet retained the Bavarian look. The SA Hochland adopted this idea and these trousers became a show of respect for the Bavarian tradition. They were as typical of Bavaria as a Dashund or a knockwurst would be. The NS mythoss was always steered toward tradition.

Kein Volk Lebt Langer als Die Dockumente Seiner Kultur -- No people live longer than the documentation of their culture (Adolf Hitler, 1937).

This offered pair are the first type used by the SA Hochland. They are a bit more traditional than the second type pictured below. Notice the great markings of the Hochland SA Standarte. A great SA collectable, especially if you have an original brown shirt of this corp.

DESCRIPTION: This is the second type of SA lederhosen as used by the SA Hochland Standarte. Note that they are marked in the same manner but by the late 1930's the issued ones like these became much more plain and no longer had the traditional front "bib." They were made in a strong fabric and with the long stockings and mountain shoes they would still retain the look. The are, however, official as is the first type shown in the item above (SA 14-8).

SA Sport Badge “SA Sportabzeichen” (Item SA 14-10)

DESCRIPTION: This is the badge instituted by the SA Staff Chief Ernst Rohm on 28 November 1933 and could only be awarded to SA and SS members. It took the shape of a Teutonic broadsword pointing upward superimposed over a swastika which was encircled by an oak leaf wreath. On its backside it says Eigentum Des Chefs Des Ausbildungs-wesens...Property of the head of physical conditioning. A recipient would have to pass tough proficiency tests to qualify for the award -- failure to do so each year meant that the award had to be returned to the SA Hauptstelle. This one is the bronze class and has some of the gilding that was bronze-gold in color. It is a nice example. One of the nicer looking badges of the Reich (dramatic!).

SA Standarte Flag from Munchberg-Naila (Item SA 14-11 & FLAG 3-11)

DESCRIPTION: This is an SA flag of honor from the Standarte Munchberg-Naila. This town is located near the border of Czechoslovakia. Naila is a small sub- community near Munchberg and is actually a suburb. The entire area is considered the ‘Hof.” The town of Helmbrechts is also in between and also is a suburb of Munchberg. Munchberg is considered the textile town of Bavaria. The first settlements of those towns date back to the 10th century. The first settlers were Monks and the original name of Munchberg probably was Monk Mountain. The first mention of the town as Munchberg was around 1223. In the time of the NSDAP 1920’s to late 1940’s, Munchberg was a true Bewegung center.  Just like in most of Bavaria the people were fiercely loyal to Hitler and the N.S. Party. The first Chapter of the N.S. Party in this part of Bavaria was formed there in 1923. Otto Button was the Ortsgruppenleiter who introduced pro-N.S. films to the local populace like “Bleeding Germany” and the “New Italy” to boost morale and patriotism amongst the populace. The local textile industry in the 1930’s was practically defunct but with Hitler’s rise to power in 1933, business was booming again and soon made great record profits. Part of their success was in producing uniforms, tapestries, armbands and flags such as this one. However, this one is the flag of Munchberg-Nalia. Probably the only one that would represent the district.

The ‘Braustubel”, the local tavern and the city and its suburbs were bedecked with Nazi flags every day of the week but one flag, the most honored of all, was shown in a showcase in the city hall and that is this one, the Honor Standard of the District of Upper Franken. Julius Streicher was the Gauleiter of this area and he also spoke in the Munchberg “Braustubel” and of course the standard would have been taken from its repository in the City Hall and it would be displayed on its flagpole held by an SA Fanentrager who would stand by the side of the speaker or behind holding the proud Munchberg-Naila standard. It would be carried in celebrations such as Hitler’s birthday April 20th, and on the 30th January the celebration of the Machtergreifung (the ascension to power of Hitler and the NSDAP).

The standarte in full measures 54 x 45 inches not counting the 1 ½ inch silver fringe. The unit patch in the left corner is measured at 8 x 6 inches. It has 3 of the original flag pole rings still mounted on it. The veteran who it was purchased from provided two more rings that came unattached. They will go with the flag. The flag has some moth damage although there are quite a few bites taken by the destructive little buggers. The flag is still nice as you can see in the pictures and the moth munching does not detract from it all that much really. You have to get up close to see it at all but we have shot a few close ups in pictures of most of the mothing. The standarte is rare.  It is double sided with center field Swastika and district patch on the obverse and reverse. This is an important piece of N.S. history and an absolutely great collector’s relic.

This was one of the SS units that guarded the Berghof, Adolf Hitler’s Alpine retreat.

Ashtray from the Storm Troops (Advertising Hand Out) (Item SA 14-13)

DESCRIPTION: This incredibly rare piece of N.S. kitch is important historically in any case.  It is made of cast aluminum and has the titles of the SA brand cigarettes along the edges. This type of ashtray hand out advertising was distributed to retail stores and tobacco shops by the company to promote the sales of these smokes . If you go to Google and type in Sturm Zigaretten you will see the story about this incredible money raising program of the Sturm Abteilung  (SA) and the four brands that they promoted. The ashtray measures 4 ½ inches in diameter and is an inch thick. When the SA was ordered to quit this promotion it was because studies under the National Socialist state had discovered definite links regarding smoking and cancer and the sale of cigarettes in general were much curtailed. The Allgemeine SS were strictly forbidden to smoke period! But this does not lessen the rarity and importance of this important authentic piece of actual Kampfzeit history.

Bizarre Demonology Dagger “TeufelDolch” (Item SA 14-14 & KWEP 5-3)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a real oddity.  This was a knife probably used in demonic rites. In 1933 after Hitler came to power there was a general clean up by the SA Sturmabteilung (storm troopers) of certain buildings and residences where Communist and Masonic meetings and ceremonies were held.  Among the anti-Nazi movements were some agitators, who besides being far to the political left, they were also to the left of all human dignity and order.  The Dachau concentration camp in 1933 and 1934 not only had guests who were Reds, Masons, religious fanatics, destructive cultists, and other radical groups that had more or less declared war on the NSDAP. Seventh Day Adventists and especially Jehovah Witnesses were considered enemies of the Reich but also there were practicing occult devil worshippers (Satanists). When located and identified as such, these criminals were not so gently handled by the brown shirt troopers when their covens were raided.

The knife we offer here was taken from just such a hovel in Berlin by an SA officer whose widow we bought it from years ago (1979). The lady was attending an antique show near Berlins Teirgarten (zoo).  She attempted to sell it to an antique dealer who did not want any part of it but summoned our picker who managed to buy it from the elderly lady. She said her husband was always proud of his service in the SA and didn’t give a damn who knew it!   He always told her to keep it next to his SA dagger with its engraved message “Alles fur Deutschalnd”! (All for Germany!).  He said it should remind him and his son and daughter about the difference in the agendas of the men who would possess each of the displayed knives.  One knife reflected values of loyalty and bravery while the other represented the powers of darkness and evil personified. The son went off to war in 1940 and never returned and the daughter unfortunately became an integral part of the American induced Coca-Cola “Kultur”. So, the good lady decided that the two daggers should go to a collector somewhere.  The SA dagger was sold earlier and we ended up with this iniquitous but vastly interesting weapon from the dark reaches of mystery and wicked application.

The dagger measures 9 inches long in its scabbard. The blade is quite lethal looking and is 4 ½ inches long and has a triangular shape better to pierce flesh with while causing much bleeding when withdrawn.  The material, except for the blade, is bronze. The grip is fashioned with frightening accuracy and depicts in high relief an acolyte of Satan himself who holds a dagger similar to this one and seems to ponder who will be his next victim.  At his feet are serpents while at his heels a gargoyles head seems to emerge. On the scabbard there is a face of a demon straight out of Hell, while a dragon type apparition seems to pay homage to this monster.  Various vines that represent roots (roots of all evil) cling to the bottommost portion of the scabbard that has one more satanic face at the very tip.  It is hoped that the original owner of this very abhorrent yet fascinating weapon didn’t have a very comfortable berth at Dachau and hopefully eventually was resolutely shown the error of his way and perhaps he eventually renounced Satan and all his ways and enlisted upon his release in the SA as was often the case.  So, we offer this rare, unique dagger today in the hopes that it will be a valued collectable but with a message brought about forthwith.

NS Patriotic, Enameled Sign (Item SA 14-15 and NSDAP 18-27)

DESCRIPTION: This is an enamel sign with the words Unser Gruss ist “Heil Hitler!” - Our Greeting is “Heil Hitler.” These signs were purchased by fervently loyal party members and supporters in the Third Reich era. Private homes, apartment complexes, shops, and schools were places where such signs were prominently and proudly displayed. Hitler was to them the Messiah who brought them Arbeit und Brot (Work and Bread). His Four-Year Plan was a miraculous task that was successfully fulfilled from 1936-1940. The signs were manufactured in 1939 and displayed far and wide in the Reich right up to the end of the war. The Führer was probably the most revered leader of a people that this world ever knew. This was the opinion of the German ‘Volk’ and as you can see, they demonstrated it! The sign is 100-percent original with the deep-dish-indented backing (not the English copy that is FLAT!). It measures 1 foot by 20 inches and is in perfect condition except for tiny chips at two of the corner edges. Here is an item that is extremely rare today. Practically all were destroyed by warfare and the actions of the “Kulturträger.”

Patriotic Pillow of the Sturmabteilung (Storm Troops) (Item SA 14-16)

DESCRIPTION: Here, right out of the turbulent 20’s, is a velvet-covered and embroidered couch pillow, probably made by a loyal and dedicated National Socialist supporter, or possibly even an SA trooper or his wife. It depicts a troop of SA men as they assemble to march and possibly kick some Communist ass in their jurisdiction. A banner is seen among the oak-leaf trim that proclaims something like this—Fear is always near, but death looms close as well! (Almost untranslatable!) But it seems to indicate fear not! Death can wait! This was rather typical of the sayings of these fearless and rough young storm-troopers of those hectic days when they defended their leaders and often would surge forth in rage against the cruel communist throngs with ferocity! The pillow is no masterpiece of art; it is rather crudely painted, but it gets the point across and it’s a truly great historical find; an important relic of the Deutschen Kampfzeit. The pillow is in good condition regardless of the crackling of the painted surface. It’s probably 85 years old and rightly deserving of a place of honor in your collection. A great relic of the “Time of Struggle.”

National Socialist Armband (Item SA 14-18; NSDAP 19-13)

DESCRIPTION: This is a mint-condition N.S. armband of the top-of-the-line type. This is with white circle machine stitched on red wool cloth. It has the multifold swastika in the center; the band is 100-percent original with the paper (RZM) tag inside. The band is so minty that it obviously was not issued, because it was never joined by sewing attachment to a uniform. For those collectors that fear latching onto a reproduction armband as often offered on other sites, here is the one you want. Just as nice and probably nicer an example as you will ever find.

Wound Dressing (“Bandage Packet”) (Item SA 14-19)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a simple, but, rare genuine little SA item necessary at the time due to the many vicious street fights that ensued between these patriots and the murderous red rats belonging to the “Red Front.” This is seldom found and rare! It’s an unopened field bandage issued by the medical corps of the Storm Troops. These were carried by SA men on field maneuvers and beer-hall brawls. It’s marked “S.A. Verband Päckchen” and has some other writing that identifies the size and shows it to be sterile (germ free). We have two of these and one has these markings about the sterile bit, and the other does not. The original tie string has never been removed. Collectors, how rare is that??? It’s 3 ½ inches long, 1 ½ inches wide, and 1 ¼ inches deep. Where would you ever find another?

Early-Style NS Flagpole Top (Item SA 14-20; NSDAP 18-41; SS 36-10)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a complete SA-SS flagpole top. To find one this complete is almost as hard to locate (and to some collectors, as desirable) as a Deutschland Erwache standard top. We have seen several of these with just the eagle and swastika portion with a threaded screw jutting out of the end and we have offered one or two of these in recent years, but this is the first complete one of these we have ever offered. When I say complete I mean with the barrel-shaped section with a saucer-shaped disc that the threaded screw goes into. The barrel is with the hole that the flagpole fits into and it has a hole in its side that takes a screw that holds the whole fixture firmly in place. The entire top is a little over 10 inches from the bottom of the barrel to the top of the head of the eagle. The wingspan is 8 inches. These flag finials were made of tough brass and are nickel plated. You can see a little bit of the brass showing here and there because this proud symbol was used in many of the parades in the Third Reich; both early SS and the SA Standarten used this style of eagle. It was also used by the political leader corps. This a rare and wonderful relic of the Reich.

Booklet Ein Kampf um Deutschland (A Struggle for Germany) (Item SA 14-21; GEN 14-24)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a small, but very important soft-cover booklet with about 32 pages; it chronicles the struggle of the National Socialists under Hitler against the bestial Reds throughout Germany, who were poised to take over through violent revolution. Their tactics, murder, riot, terror, and all that stood between these terrorists of the left were the stalwart loyal Storm Troopers of the Sturmabteilung (SA). The booklet shows the vile disdain that the Reds had for Christianity and Western values and illustrates through word and picture the reaction from Hitler and the Right. We know now that the Communist onslaught was defeated at least for that time through the heroism of the brown-shirt battalions, but later, Communism would succeed in its evil agenda with the willing participation of the Western Powers in its rescue of Stalin’s regime. Of course, we know that because of the intervention of Roosevelt and Churchill the Communists rose to world power that still exists, although by other names. This booklet printed in 1933 shows the epic struggle that unfortunately failed and the world is not a better place as a result. This is an important relic of the tumultuous era.

Wall Eagle of the Sturmabteilung (SA) (Item SA 14-22)

DESCRIPTION: Here is an eagle 100 times rarer than the railroad boxcar eagles that are so sought after by collectors. This is the earliest style of eagle that you see in SA and early SS cap insignia. This was the eagle of the Kampfzeit (the struggle for power of 1920-30s). This would have been a wall decoration for the SA Storm Troopers; probably used in one of their SA-Heim or headquarters. It is 100-percent original and extremely rare. In many years of travel in this business and visiting many of the world’s best collections we have encountered only this one. It is rarer than a Deutschland Erwache standard; there were thousands of them, but how many of these turn up compared with hundreds of the standards we have seen in collections? The piece was cast in bronze and is in perfect condition, and the only repair is where the fastening tab at the back was soldered back on. Fine detail and every feather of the bird has feathering that is plain to see. The eagle sits on a wreath of finely detailed oak leaves with the swastika in high relief. The whole piece could be said to be a relief figure in that it jumps right out there in a third-dimensional motif; it definitely is not flat like the RR eagles. Here is a piece of N.S. history that will never be seen again once it disappears into a collector’s hands who is wise enough and fortunate enough to invest in it. Unique! and historically important.

Book Bewaffneter Aufstand! Also Published in English as “Communism in Germany (Item SA 14-22)

DESCRIPTION: Here, for the student or revisionist historian, is a rare original edition of the best book that has ever explained why we Germanophiles have always been known as politically incorrect readers and persons given to irational thought by the liberals and know-nothings. The book graphically illustrates in pictures and text the urgent imperative of Adolf Hitler and his loyal SA Storm Troops though bloody combat and supreme sacrifice to win a vastly important victory over the murdering Satanic forces of the “Communist International” thus actually stopping it from taking Germany over completely in the 1920s and early 30s. From the betrayal of Germany’s working class in WWI to the rise of the Communist Spartakus League under Rosa Luxemberg and her Rote Fahne (Red Banner) to the formation of the ‘little Soviet republics inside Germany,’ the fomenting of labor unrest by Communist agitators, the destruction of German culture and art by the Red thugs, and their racist hate-mongering Allies. Germany was under attack from within. The same forces that fomented the bloody Soviet Revolution in Russia were next targeting a defeated yet nobly strongest nation in Europe—Germany. This was the real holocaust that killed millions of indigenous Latvians and Russians that were murdered by those Communists a decade earlier in Russia and now the same system was boiling up in Germany. The Germans had every right to fear it; and every right to fight back. The National Socialists fought bloody frays with the Communists in the streets of Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt, and many other cities and also in the union halls and eventually they won, but at the cost of many of the young lives of the brave Storm Troopers. This book details that epic struggle. The book was written by Adolf Ehrt and he tells the story in clear, graphic detail. He illustrates how the Red Revolution very nearly succeeded in taking over the Weimar Republic and Germany proper from Hamburg to Munich. It names names, gives dates, and provides photographs; some of which are in gruesome detail. There were unbelievable ghouls in the service of the Reds who criminally used arson, murder, and rape in their hideous tactics to achieve their political goals. The National Socialist German Workers Movement of the times was the only political party of size and strength to defeat them and be a bulwark against the Communist ménage that threatened to engulf all of Europe in the horrible red cesspool. Not only did Hitler and his Brownshirts and SS men face the violent Communist revolutionaries, but in the end they defeated them. But, we also know that F.D.R., the communist sympathizer and the ever-drunken Churchill, and the completely evil Joseph Stalin came along to change the course of history and promote the specter of communism not only in defeated Germany but throughout the postwar world. We offer this vastly important and period book in the German language, but wait! We include a copy of the book recently published in English, as well. The English edition is from our personal library and has some highlighted passages. Both books have more than 175 pages each and they are indispensable volumes that show vividly what the Western World was in for if Hitler and his National Socialist had not prevailed. They set back the Red plans for a good long time (but permanently?) This set includes an original, rare, period volume and the recently published edition.

Party Press Armband with Gau Stamp in Germany (Item SA 14-23)

DESCRIPTION: This is a nice original NSDAP armband of the style issued to the Storm Troops (SA). It has the red, cotton field with white circular field and the machine-embroidered swastika. What sets it apart is the Gau press stamp on the back. It is the early Kampfzeit N.S. eagle and the words translate to “The National Socialist German Workers’ Party.” Here is the bonus: it says GAU Presse-Amt--“The Press Office.” So the man who wore this was obviously a party reporter who would cover events like the annual Party Congress at Nuremberg. Under this is the section he belonged to: GAU WESTMARK.

Carved Wooden Eagle and Swastika (Item SA 14-24; WOODMASTER 1-9; GEN 14-28)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a carved-wood treasure from the N.S Kampfzeit (The Time of Struggle). Note: this eagle is of the style adopted by the N.S Party in the 1920s. Those familiar with the history of the Nazi Party will recognize this eagle as the style used on the cover of Adolf Hitler’s famous book, Mein Kampf. This was the first form of the national symbol of N.S. Germany’s Adler mit Hackenkreuz (eagle with swastika). The carving is striking; even better than much of the Black Forest wood-carving art. The style of this artistic offering is recognized by us as the classic eastern German art form possibly from the area of Berlin-Brandenburg or Silesia. This magnificent bird was a desk piece of an SA (Storm Troop) leader as it was the SA-Sturmabteilung corps that continuously used this particular emblem and symbol on their uniforms, flags, jewelry, and even their vehicles. The legend engraved upon the plaque affixed to the wooden figure is quite naturally the most favored bywords of the Third Reich, Germany above all! The wooden sculpture measures 15 inches high from the bottom of the base to the top of the eagle’s head. The wingspan measures 16 inches. The bottommost plinth is 12 inches x 7½ inches, while the plinth holding the plaque is 8½ x 4 inches and is 3½ inches wide. The wreath containing the swastika is 6½ inches in diameter. The plaque has another nonmobile swastika engraved at the left side and the symbol of the SA at the right and proclaimed proudly across the expanse are the glorious words from the national anthem of the German land the music of which was composed by Joseph Haydn in 1797. No song ever portrayed more nationalistic patriotism on the soul of a nation and its people than “Deutschland über alles.” Unfortunately today’s Germany is governed by liberals and the song is remarkably still used, but not with those wonderful words as its opening theme. In fact, they have banished these beautiful inspiring words along with the national colors and naturally any portrayal of the swastika is punishable with prison terms. How low can they go? Answer: “much lower!” Germany’s proud military history and its heroes of the past are downplayed in the public schooling. Its traitors glorified and its military tradition shredded with lies and horrid vilifications. So, I must confess it is a distinct pleasure to see this symbol of Germany’s past and the words of the “Deutschlandlied” proclaimed so elegantly. Happy is the feeling that I have that this marvelous relic has survived the war and preserved by a considerate cautious collector in the Fatherland for all of those years. This is surely an awesome treasure of the Reich.

Kampfzeit Eagle Stickpin in Silver (Item SA 14-25; PINS 8-20)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a stickpin that was made as a traditions item. The title we found on a tag that accompanied one of the stickpins was “Krawattennadel für SA”—“tie pin for the SA” (Sturmabteilung). The eagle on this pin is smaller than the wreathed swastika. This was the form of the National Socialist insignia in the 1920s; compared to the later national symbol it seems rather crude. If you go to Item SA 14-24 you will see this eagle in the form of a woodcarving. The earliest standards carried this eagle, and the covers of the early editions of Hitler’s Mein Kampf had it in this form on their covers. Herr Schnell probably got an order from some SA unit to produce these traditional eagles in the 1920s or possibly, they were produced as a device worn when in civilian clothes to show the man’s membership in the SA from its beginnings. They were struck in pure 800 silver and were so stamped on the rear of the wreath at the bottom. This is a fine-looking stickpin and is larger than the average, by far. Why? Because membership in this rough-and-tumble outfit was something to be proud of an it was only natural to show it with “gusto.” This piece has a wingspan of 2 inches and is 1 ¼ inches high. No shrinking violet is this bird! It is an important insignia of a turbulent time in Germany’s N.S. history.

Great SA Marine Album (Item SA 14-26; ALBUMS 4-2)

DESCRIPTION: Here is one of the 10 nicest albums we have ever had. It is in mint shape and is covered in a soft brown or tan linen cover. Unfortunately the tie strings are missing that hold it all together but quite easily replaced. It is anything but the normal German WWII-era album. It is chock full of beautiful and RARE photos. It would take more time than we have to describe all the pictures to you, but at least we will tell you about some of the most important ones. The album opens with a 5x7 picture of two very-high-ranking SA officials who are seen walking the height over the Hamburg harbor. The next page has a picture of Marine SA men in seated formation looking like they are awaiting assignment. On the next page is a small photo of an SA man who probably was the owner of the album and beside this is a group shot of about 15 SA Marine troopers. And below is a picture of a Schnellboote with 3 troops ready to board and then an actual picture of Rudolf Hess visiting with the captain and the first mate; then another shot of the Schnellboote with crew and then, lo and behold, a great picture of the whole assembled crew in size 6 ½ x 5. Then more pictures of the ship and crew and in subsequent pages more great pictures of the ship, officers, and crew. Also there are pictures of the training ships Horst Wessel and Gorch Fock. Then Surprise!, an original photo of Adolf Hitler with a shipbuilder launching a vessel. Then many more photos of the SA crewmen doing their nautical thing. Then more ship launching, a photo of the captain and then a beautiful 7x5 original picture of Adolf Hitler and Joseph Goebbels on board a ship along with naval officers conversing with an important shipbuilder and his wife. *Please take note: that close-up, candid photo of the Führer could only have been taken by persons who had the highest security clearance as the owner of this album possibly had. Then there is a 7x5 photo of a reviewing stand with political leaders awaiting a parade on the Ludwigstrasse in Munich. A wonderful 7x5 photo shows Reichswehr troops marching past a jubilant public gathering. Further are pictures of the Deutsches Eck monument and the Brandenberg gate festooned with swastikas. Additional photos show a meeting of party members at a Biergarten, the march past of the NSKOV veterans and more marching political-leader corps, SA, et al. There are about 17 pictures of some of the SA marine troopers after they enlisted in the army. There are camp scenes, battle-front scenes, placement scenes all over east and west with soldiers, a neat picture of a German soldier dispensing goodies to children probably in France, the grave of a fallen comrade, more candid scenes, and at the end a beautiful Christmas card from 1941 with pine-tree branch, candle, and inside the back cover is an art plate from a German magazine that says it all about patriotism and firm resolve.

PRICE: $750.00; This is a very special album indeed!

Official Crash Helmet of the National Socialist Motor Corps (Item SA 14-26a)

DESCRIPTION: This unit, also known as the National Socialist Drivers Corps, was a paramilitary organization of the Nazi Party that existed from 1931. The group was successor to the older National Socialist Automobile Corps, which had existed since the beginning of 1930. It was headed by Adolf Hühnlein from 1934. The National Socialist Motor Corps was the smallest of the Nazi Party organizations and originally had been formed as a motorized corps of the Sturmabteilung (SA). On July 20, 1934, the group had a membership of approximately ten thousand and was separated from the SA to become the independent organization. Further on, the Motor SA was removed from the SA and merged into its “junior partner,” the NSKK. The primary aim of the NSKK was to educate its members in motor skills. In the mid 1930s the NSKK also served well the government. They were trained in the operation and maintenance of high-performance motorcycles and automobiles in the 1930s and 1940s. The NSKK also served as a roadside-assistance group comparable to the AAA (American Automobile Association). With the outbreak of WWII the NSKK was absolutely a natural for recruitment by the Wehrmacht since members possessed knowledge of motorized transport, whereas the bulk of the Wehrmacht relied on horses. The NSKK was indeed a paramilitary organization in the first place so from 1935 onward the organization also provided training for the Panzer crews of the German army.

The Crash Helmet

This is a variant of the first pattern helmet. It’s made of black Vulcan fiber with black-leather “crash rolls” with a protective flap that flips over the back of the wearer’s neck. It’s perforated at each ear port that will fasten under the chin with metal buckle. It bears a pressed-metal, early-style NSDAP eagle insignia with mobile swastika on the Reichsadler (eagle). The brown-leather liner is marked size “57” and stamped with the manufacturer’s mark. The overall condition is good with some drying and cracking to the black-leather neck flap, but some black leather dye and shoe polish could do wonders here! RARE! Truly rare!

Gorget of the NSKK Traffic-Control Service (Ringkragen ‘Verkehrs Erziehungsdienst’) (Item SA 14-27; WEHR 33-16) SOLD

DESCRIPTION: This type of handsome gorget was introduced in 1931 for the Nationalsozialistisches Kraftfahrkorps (NSKK) (National Socialist Motor Corps), a paramilitary organization of the National Socialist (Nazi) Party and existed until 1945. The group was a successor to the older National Socialist Automobile Corps that had existed since the beginning of 1930 and was headed by Adolf Hühnlein. It was the smallest of the N.S. Party organizations and had originally been formed as a motorized corps of the Sturmabteilung (SA). On 20 July 1935, the group had approximately ten thousand men and separated from the SA to become a distinct organization. The primary aim of the NSKK was to educate its members in motoring skills. They were mainly trained in the operation and maintenance of high-performance motorcycles and automobiles. In the 1930s the NSKK also served as a roadside-assistance group comparable to the modern-day American Automobile Association. Almost every facet of automotive travel, racing, and autobahn services had some NSKK involvement. The gorget that we offer here was worn by traffic controllers and enforcement personnel in emergency situations, traffic control at huge NSKK rallies, and exhibitions such as the annual Nuremberg party rallies. With the outbreak of WWII in 1939, the NSKK served in the transport corps of the various branches of the Wehrmacht and this gorget was even used on the front combat lines. The gorget on the obverse is quite nice with practically all of the black finish intact. The individual wearer’s personal membership number is seen there. The gorgets were constructed in light-gauge aluminum so weight would not be a factor as the NSKK man worked long shifts at this very necessary service. The back in green felt shows that this one was heavily used in military duties. The ones for homeland service were backed in black felt. The felt backing is rather well used and not pretty, but it was probably worn on a daily basis during the entire war. I have always thought this was the sharpest gorget of the whole gambit of various Third Reich paraphernalia. This item measures 7 x 4 1/2 inches and its condition is–excellent.

All attachments are sound. This is a great addition to the finer collection of early “Bewegung” articles.

SA (Sturmabteilung) Dolch Stormtroops (Brownshirts) Dagger (Item SA 14-31)

DESCRIPTION: Here is an extra-fine SA dagger by Tiger Solingen. Its logo has a crouching tiger on the blade and they are considered by collectors to be one of the more desirable finds in SA daggers. This one is in great condition throughout with a really excellent wooden grip that fits against the metal fittings (pommel and crossguard with no gaps). The finish on scabbard fittings is nickel and in top condition. The crossguard has the stamp “NRH” signifying it was issued in the region of Niederhein. All the scabbard screws are in place and seemingly untouched. There is some slight wear on the brown lacquer scabbard. The motto on the blade—Alles für Deutschland—is deeply etched with all the frosting intact in the letters. The only scratches on the blade are the usual runner marks from the blade insertions over time. The dagger rates an easy 98 percent plus. The grip must be seen to be truly appreciated as it is fashioned from extra-fine fruitwood and has a natural luster as seen in many of these daggers. It has a very subtle grain visible on close inspection. The SA button is in enamel and is perfect. The grip eagle is shiny bright and unusually finely detailed (ready to fly!). The lower scabbard ball says: “I have never been dropped,” and not a lot of them can say that. So, here he is friends; a great SA dagger by Tiger! Grrr! They don’t come a lot better than this one!

Complete NSKK Motorcycle Riders Uniform: All Original--Nothing Replaced (Item SA 14-32)

DESCRIPTION: This is an outstanding and ultrarare uniform of the National Socialist Motor Corps (Nationalsozialistisches Kraftfahrkorps). This was a paramilitary organization of the Nazi Party (NSDAP). This corps officially existed from May 1931 to 1945. The group was a successor organization to the older National Socialist Automobile Corps (NSAK), which had existed since April 1930. The NSKK served as a training organization, mainly instructing members in the operation and maintenance of high-performance motorcycles and automobiles. The NSKK was further used to transport NSDAP and SA officials/members. The NSKK also served as a roadside assistance group in the mid-1930s, comparable to the modern-day American Automobile Association or the British Automobile Association. With the outbreak of World War II, NSKK ranks were recruited to serve in the transport crops of various German military branches. It was the smallest of the Nazi Party organizations. Adolf Huhnlein was appointed the leader of the NSAK that was to serve as a motorized corps of the Sturmabteilung (SA). Thereafter, Huhnlein suggested the name be changed to National Socialist Motor Corps (NSKK). The name change became official on May 1, 1931. It was a paramilitary organization with its own system of paramilitary ranks and as we have stated was the smallest of the Nazi Party organizations. On July 20, 1934, three weeks after the major purge the SA suffered during the Night of the Long Knives, the 10,000-member-strong NSKK was separated and promoted into an independent NSDAP organization. From 1935 onward, the NSKK also provided training for Panzer crews and drivers of the German army. By 1938, the members underwent mechanics and operational training for both civilian- and military-type vehicles. With the outbreak of WWII in Europe on September 1,1939, the National Socialist Motor Corps became a target for army recruitment, since NSKK members possessed knowledge of motorized transport, a coveted skill when the bulk of German ground forces relied on horses. The NSKK itself was formed into transport companies to move German Army troops, supplies, and ammunition.

The NSKK complete uniform

The extremely rare and complete uniform that Germania International now offers is comprised of the following:

Leather crash helmet of the motor crops
Tunic that is 100-percent correct to the NSKK. It has the necktie and SA sports badge. The collar tabs with unit designation are blue with “3/464” embroidered on them. The right side has two metal pips, which designate this trooper to be an NSKK Truppführer (staff sergeant)
Waist belt of heavy-duty leather that goes through a special wide loop in the back of the tunic specially designed for it
Armband that is not sewn in place, but is completely original to the outfit
Diamond-shaped patch with the NSKK eagle sleeve insignia. This patch was particularly for motorcycle operators.
Single shoulder board (proper) for a Truppführer
Early belt buckle—the absolutely correct one for NSKK
Leather over-the-shoulder strap. (Sam Browne style!)
Issue black trousers (riding-style jodhpurs). All are proper to this outfit and in top condition.
Boots—very nice, very black—and in beautiful condition and perfectly matched to this outfit
Last, but certainly not least: NSKK-issue dagger as manufactured by Eickhorn in beautiful A-1 condition. These daggers are much rarer than the SA dagger and to see it as part of this extraordinary complete outfit is nothing short of outstanding!.

Note: The tunic not only has the special belt-retainer loop at the back, but it has several metallic hook-style belt retainers going all around the bottommost garment hem. The crash helmet shows much honest wear, but is all there and complete and has the N.S. eagle peculiar to this usage alone in the uniforms of the Third Reich. No other corps ever used this particular eagle; later the style was changed but this is the early one. So, here is the most complete NSKK uniform that we have ever seen: complete with all original parts; all from one purchase from the relatives of the original wearer. Here is an opportunity to purchase one of the most glamorous uniforms of the Third Reich. Glamorous? Yes, in the fact that it is all original and all there! And yes indeed the crowds in the German streets back in the 30s and 40s yelled their loudest when the -Leibstandarte marched by and even possibly louder still when the battalions of motorcycles of the NSKK thundered by. This rare outfit is offered complete for a very reasonable price.

PRICE: $7,850.00. If you add up what all these component parts would sell for you can readily see that this is a very reasonable price for certain.

DESCRIPTION: Here is a rare device as seen on the uniforms of leaders of the SA and Jugend leaders of the HJ. On another site we recently saw one in green material and this would be entirely incorrect except that it would be for Jägerschaft members. The lanyards for these SA and HJ organizations would be brown, in color coordination with their uniforms. This beautifully braided example is exactly the color that it should be. It has the loop to go under the button of the epaulet and the clip at the other end to attach to the whistle. If you have a nice SA or Hitler Youth uniform, this will enhance it significantly. The lanyard is 12 inches long and in mint condition.

Political Leader Uniform for Haupteinsatzleiter (Head of Operations) (Item NSD 21-18; SA 14-36; PARTEI 4-14)

DESCRIPTION: This uniform that consists of tunic, necktie, visor cap, two belts, party pin, and trousers was for a political leader of the NSDAP, who could have been a cell-operations foremen, a block leader, or even a regional office leader. This is determined by the pattern of the swastika armband he wears. His collar tabs indicates that he was of secretary commission level in the Gau hierarchy. Seen in the images are a holster for a Walther PPK automatic pistol, and a pair of boots. These items do not go with the outfit; we have shown them only to illustrate what a political leader in the Third Reich would have worn. I have said there are two belts; one of them is the dress belt worn on special occasions with the round gold-colored brocade with the national eagle and swastika surrounded with oak leaves. The other is with the standard belt buckle. These individuals pretty much wore their uniforms every day in their office functions, but once a year in September the Nuremberg Reichsparteitag was held and the entire political leader corps would march into the rallies that were massive and beautiful and were held from 1923 with subsequent annual gatherings? 1927, 1929 and the ones that featured the political leaders would be the 1933 through 1938. They usually marched in at night with hundreds of search lights beaming giving the impression, when referred to by the British ambassador to Germany as: “ . . . both solemn and beautiful . . .like being in ‘a cathedral of ice.’” As we have noted, the man who wore this uniform was an officer at the Gau level. The Gaus were the official administrative subdivisions of National Socialist Germany. Each one had an administrative leader (Gauletier). Germany consisted of 32 districts in 1934 and later, 42. The uniform for a Haupteinsatzleiter would fall to such an individual to be in a general staff positon that was common across all levels of the Party. He would have been typically assigned to substantially important administrative duties. This corps is the only one of the Party and military functionaries that did not have a dress dagger as did the SA, SS, Hitler Youth, or Labor Corps. Instead, the political leaders had a pistol (Walther PPK) that they wore while in uniform. The reason for this was that Communist thugs would attack them in the time before the pistols were issued. After that these vermin, thinking that unarmed Nazi would be easy prey, were treated to a deadly surprise!!! The trousers of the outfit have one noticeable moth hole in the crotch area otherwise the tunic and trousers are in very good shape. Note: After the war, the family of the man lived in former Communist East Germany in Halle am Salle. It was forbidden to have anything with a swastika on it by official edict, but they didn’t want to destroy Papa’s uniform even though all the buttons have the forbidden symbol as well as the collar tabs. The dress belt had a very blatant eagle and swastika and of course there was his NSDAP Party pin. But the part that was in their mind the most troublesome was the armband with its highly conspicuous ostentatious Hakenkreuz (swastika). So, they removed the white field with the so-called notorious figuration. Now why did they feel all the other N.S. symbolism would be all right? We can’t say nor did the family member who sold it to us know or at least wouldn’t speak of it. My guess is that when the war ended these folks thought that a just peace between the N.S. government and the American, Brits, and French would realize that the true enemy was Communism and the former N.S. Party officials would be reinstated and Germany would be rearmed and go forth with the Allies against the greatest enemy mankind ever faced–Soviet Bolshevism! So the uniform was carefully hidden away in homes that the swastika flag would hopefully flutter once again in Halle. One of the women of the family cut the swastika out of the armband, but obviously it was preserved separately and hidden from sight like the rest of the uniform. When our German picker bought the outfit he took it to a trusted tailor and had it put back together. It’s not really a bad job and would be I am sure very acceptable to a serious collector. It is, after all, an extremely scarce N.S. uniform. “Alles für Deutschland!
