Kriegsmarine Dagger By Carl Eickhorn | Perfect Provenance.
SS artefacts, military timepieces, and edged weapons remain key themes for 2017
SS artefacts, military timepieces, and edged weapons were distinctive collecting themes thoughout 2016 and appear set to continue into 2017 and beyond.
Additionally Historical signatures have always been a stable collecting theme, and our new Historical Signatures category showcases a great selection of notable, Third Reich personalities including Hitler, Göring, Speer, Himmler, Kaltenbrunner, Blomberg, and others. Third Reich personality signature prices range from a few hundred - to several thousand pounds, so it's possible to start collecting with a relatively modest budget.
The three artefacts selected for our Highlights Page this month include one of Hermann Göring's hunting daggers, a Kriegsmarine dagger brought back from Bremen in 1945 by Captain Scott of the Cameronians, last, but by no means least, a stunning example of Allgemeine-SS General rank peak visor cap; all three pieces meet our Museum-Quality Standard.
The Hermann Göring hunting dagger was one of several items acquired by a US Army officer from the Obersalzburg complex in 1945.
The Kriegsmarine dagger is a scarce Eickhorn manufactured piece with rope bands to the scabbard and with matching 'Depot' markings. The dagger was brought back to England by Captain Scott of the Cameronians, after finding it when capturing Bremen in 1945.
The stunning museum quality Allgemeine-SS General rank peak visor cap, has been consigned to us along with an equally fine Waffen-SS General rank peak visor cap. The two caps held centre stage in the collection, being displayed together in a purpose made glass case.
