WW2 German Luftwaffe Officers Dagger Ė Good Maker
A lovely 2nd pattern Luftwaffe officers dagger. Its prominent features include the wonderful cross guard of the Luftwaffe eagle holding the swastika in its claws and the pommel decorated with sprays of oak leaves with a swastika nestling in the centre; all in good condition with no loss of plate. The yellow grip still has all of its silver wire binding, although the grip is a little discoloured in places. It has a good blade, this has seen some wear, it has some very light pitting in small areas and the makers mark for; Paul Weyersberg & Co of Solingen is worn, but still readable. The scabbard is in good condition, some very small areas of plate loss to one side, just spots really, the other side, the display side is all-good.
All in all a good dagger, not perfect, but it is nowhere near a perfect condition price. A good example for anyone who doesnít have the large budget for a mint dagger. Please see detailed pictures for condition.

Interesting WW2 German Photo Album NCO Anti-Aircraft Crew.
A very interesting WW2 photo album taken by a NCO of a German Antiaircraft gun crew. The many pictures include wrecked and shot down allied aircraft, German aircraft and motorised vehicles, tanks, trains and German invasion aircraft and the antiaircraft crew themselves. There is a picture of a rare Junkers G.38 a four-engine transport plane, which held a number of records, and at the time the largest land based aircraft in the world. It could carry up to thirty passengers, some in the wings and the engines were accessible by the crew in flight. The picture shows one of only two planes produced, one crashed on a post maintenance flight in 1936 and the other one, surmising thins one, was destroyed in an RAF raid on Athens in May 1941.
The album contains 168 photographs in all please see pictures for content.
WW1 German 1898/05 Butcher Bayonet Ė by Mauser
The German Butcher bayonet made between 1905 to around 1918, although they were used during WW2. Designed to fit the 1898 German Mauser Carbines and Rifles.
This one is in very good condition; it has good wood grips and the pommel and the cross guard are heavily patinated but no rust. It has no muzzle ring, just two stubs known as Ďearsí. The blade is good with no rust, it is again, heavily patinated and it will clean back, if you wish to do so. It has good makers mark Waffenfabrik Mauser Oberndorf . The mark is a little rubbed but still readable. There is also a proof mark on the back of the blade with the date mark for 1916.
The steel scabbard has a polished finish, this has been cleaned back recently, obviously, someone had started to restore this bayonet, luckily they didnít get to the blade. It measures 20.5 inches long in its scabbard.
All in all a very good looking bayonet.

Bundle of German Field Post from NCO to Mother Ė Interesting.
A lovely original and untouched lot of WW2 German filed post. Sent by a NCO in the German army from mainly the Russian front to his mother. She has bound them together with the ribbon from her motherís cross. I have only looked at a few, but they seem full of sentiment and love for his mother. A cracking lot for research, did he survive the harsh conditions of eastern campaign or was he one of the very many casualties of the Russian front. There is approximately 36 pieces of corrisponence dating through 1940 / 41.
