SS Identity Card (Item SS 16-1)

DESCRIPTION: Very rare official identity card of an SS man named Paul Heuer who was attached to SS Unit 3/54. It has Heuer's original signature and the stamp of the SS-Oberführer was put there as approved in July 13, 1934. The card is quite rare also in the fact that it was required of SS men that the picture should be sans cap. His SS Ausweiss number was 213 062. He was born in Königsberg November 11, 1905. The card has the dues stamps attached and the official stamp of the Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler stamped twice along with Himmler's facsimile signature and the actual signature of the SS-Standartenführer. The front bears the pressed approval of the SS-Abschnt. This is a very rare item as these cards were for the greatest part destroyed by the culture bearers when the SS was erroneously declared a "criminal organization." This is in fine condition and is very historically important.

PRICE:  SOLD

SS Arm Patch Eagles (Item SS 16-2)

DESCRIPTION: This is a really rare item in that it is comprised of three original SS arm insignia form a sheet of the same. These are machine embroidered and can be considered rare, individually, to say nothing of how scarce they would be in a block such as this.

PRICE: SOLD

SS Eagle Patch in Silver Bullion (Item SS 16-3)

DESCRIPTION: This is probably the most beautiful of all the cloth items of the Third Reich and the SS, although it is but a sports patch. This supports the view that the Third Reich uniform items were the very best in the military and paramilitary world. This fine bullion constructed eagle is dramatic in its entire look and presentation.

PRICE: $198.00 very rare

Booklet Ausbildungs Vorschrift für die Allgemeine-SS (Item SS 16-4)

DESCRIPTION: An instruction manual for the Allgemeine-SS formations from the SS-Sturm 4/5 Vorschrift=instructions. This is a 40-page book mostly about drill and march formations with a foreword by the Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler at Berlin in 1937. This book is in tattered shape as far as the covers can be described the back cover is missing! However, these instructional manuals are getting exceedingly rare and the price of this one is only a tiny fraction of what one would cost in perfect shape. This still makes a fine addition to an Allgemeine-SS collection.

PRICE:  SOLD

Book Die Feier, The Celebration from the book collection of the SS-Totenkopf Standarte “Oberbayern” (Item SS 16-7)

DESCRIPTION: This book was one of those purchased in a great collection; formally the archives of the SS Death’s Head Division of Upper Bavaria-an elite formation of the SS organization. It’s 40 pages long with drawings from Teutonic ritual items, a great ancestral chart (Ahnenerbe style), a couple of full-page line drawings, and a great photo of Reichsführer-SS H. Himmler with Adolf Hitler. It was published under the writings for life leadership and ceremonial continuation in the SS under the auspices of the Reichsführer-SS and the chief of the headquarters office of the SS. (first edition) The text denotes and describes the ancient customs and festivities of the Teutonic forbearers and their effect as felt and practiced by the SS in the Third Reich. This is a truly rare book. It has the ex libris card of the SS-Oberbayern group in the front cover. The condition for a 65-year-old soft-cover book is generally very good with a little fraying at the spine. It measures 7 ½ x 10 ½ inches. A (great) SS article and very historically important.

SS Police Officer’s Sword (Item SS 16-8)

DESCRIPTION: This is an ultra-rare SS-Police NCO sword by WKC. See Thomas Wittman’s Exploring the Dress Daggers and Swords of the German SS, page 489 for SS Karl Diebitch logo and approval stamp. (Only) WKC marked their blades in this way. The SS-Police Degen is actually more rare than the regular SS swords. Work by respected scholar and German police expert Joseph Wotka, has revealed that the SS-Police Degen was not introduced in 1936, but rather in 1938. Until publication of this reference book, it had been thought that the SS-Police Degen for police officers and nonofficers was introduced in 1936 at the same time as the SS officer Degen. The evidence has been always before the eyes of the collecting community in the form of the Party Day books of 1936 and 1937 and other dated photographs. These books show the SS Degen in use, but not the new weapon for the Police, who continued to wear mostly Imperial-style Degens and sabers. With Himmler’s appointment as Chief of Police on 17 June 1936, Germany did in fact become the ultimate police state. The appointment gave Himmler the authority to reorganize and combine all of the previously separate state, city, and local police forces into one fearsome, unified Reich force. Within days of his appointment, the criminal detection and Gestapo organizations were assigned to Reinhard Heydrich and became known as the Sicherheitspolizei. All rural and city police, (except traffic police who were under the Ministry for Transport) were organized into the Ordnungspolizei, under Kurt Daluege. Himmler kept the two organizations separate by appointing Karl Wolff of his personal office to act as liaison. In this manner, Himmler set up a three-way rivalry. Because of the police takeover by the SS, large numbers of existing and future SS personnel had police backgrounds, and many policemen also were members of the SS. The SS-Police Degen for officer and noncommissioned personnel was introduced by order of the RFSS and Chief of the German Police, Heinrich Himmler, on August 5, 1938, with a mandatory date of usage of April 1, 1939. At that time, new uniforms were presented for Hitler’s approval. However, it was not possible to introduce the new standard Degen at that time, as the subject of many different existing side arms and words currently being worn had to be addressed first. The logistical nightmare of merging the many Länder (state) police forces into a single uniform body must have indeed been a challenge. As an example, the state of Prussia with the largest force, had been under Nazi control since 1933. That officer corps alone used a variety of swords, and senior NCO personnel carried the Model 1930 Police clamshell bayonet. Despite the SS takeover of the Police, it would be another two years before the new Degen would be introduced. This is a classic textbook example and is as nice as they usually come. An SS policeman who wore this one would have been well over 6 feet tall as this is an extra-long sword-40 inches in the scabbard. Blade shows a few nicks at its edges. Policemen often rapped the swords on fences, mailboxes, even curbs to gain attention in crowd scenes. Original owner painted in the background to bring out the eagle. Nice depth to the SS runes on top. Rating good to excellent.

Model 1936 Chained SS Dagger (Type Two) (Item SS 16-9)

DESCRIPTION: This is a textbook example of a type two officer’s dagger. Everything about it matches the descriptions in Thomas Wittman’s fine book Exploring the Dress Daggers and Swords of the German SS. It has the somewhat lighter stamping of the SS proof mark on page 141 of the aforementioned book. There is a close-up of the chain and scabbard of a dagger almost identical to this one. Wittman mentions the center mount is retained with two screws and this is the way this one we offer is done. He also mentions excellent detail to the skull’s teeth and background pebbling and we can attest that ours shows all of that, as well. The ramp that gives the rounded look is evident, also. The dagger could be called the mid-period example just as shown on page 142 of the book (practically identical!) with anodized scabbard. This dagger we offer here is without a doubt a classic fine example. It is in generally excellent condition throughout. The scabbard bluing is original and very nice with the slightest tiny discoloration near the top fitting (almost not noticeable at all). The tip mount is unruptured. Chain is perfect with the excellent skulls and runes in high fine detail. The grip is fitting well to the top and cross guard. The cross guard is good, but has the slightest nickel scoring (minute!). The blade is wonderful! with the very slight blackening at the middle of the word ‘Heisst.’ The blade fits to the cross guard perfectly with slight (expected) dents in back where when worn it brushes against the belt of the wearer. The grip eagle is well fitted as is the runic button. We would rate this one as excellent plus! The supplies are certainly drying up. Here is a chance to own one of the best!
