June 2019  Highlights

 

 

Welcome to our June 2019 highlights.  This month we are showcasing three items, all from the first phase of the Richard Dudley collection. This London-based former shipping agent, started collecting back in the 1970s, and continued to collect through to the early 2000s. His focus was on military units of the Third Reich, with an emphasis on the elite formations fighting between 1939 and 1945. Various phases of the collection will be introduced for sale on this platform over the coming months.

 


Additionally we have just taken in the last phase of the Alan Bunting edged weapons collection. Of particular interest is the Postschutze leaders dagger, in stunning condition, and with a low serial number. Bunting’s records show that he purchased this dagger from militaria dealer, and rock star, Chris Farlow, on the 14th August 1970, for the princely sum of £150. 

 


However, back to our highlights for this month.

 


Our first highlight from the Dudley collection, is a formal Knights Cross citation. This 1940 dated citation is one of the first awarded, and bears a good dominant Hitler signature. The recipient was German Army Major, Gustav Hertz, and it was awarded to him for his gallant actions during the campaign against France. The citation remains in close to mint condition.

 


Continuing with highlights from the Dudley collection, we offer a stunning cased Knights Cross of the Iron Cross. This example - an official award issue piece - bears the ‘935’ silver content number, along with a number ‘4’, being the maker, Steinhauer & Lück. Importanty, it was Steinhauer & Luck, that received the commission to manufacture the prototype Knights Cross awards. 

 


The third and last Dudley collection highlight for June, is a magnificent German Army black panzer wrap-over jacket for an Oberstleutnant. The jacket is an earlier piped-collar version of fine quality. Previously in the Ken Green collection from the 1970s, the jacket was acquired for the Dudley collection in the late 1980s / early 1990s. The jacket features in the Osprey publication about Panzer formations. This is the first of a number of rare wrapover jackets, which will be offered for sale from the Dudley collection.
