  • WWII German Heer Dagger, WKC

    I am not an expert on this era or style. I will give the best description I can, please ask questions or for more photos if you need.

    The blade has light freckling but no significant pits. It is unsharpened and clean. The cartouche is clear and deep.

    The plastic grip is yellowed with age, very clean, in excellent shape with a single black spot and what may be a faint crack at the bolster end.

    The pommel is crisp with casting marks, but all the decoration is deep, clean and with no visible scratches.

    The guard appears to be the early type, with even gray patina and no major wear.

    The scabbard has a dent front, another back, two fainter ones, and even patina. It draws easily.

    The tag is from the Fort Harrison Museum, where the previous owner loaned it for display.

  • Pair of 19th Century Gunpowder Flasks

    Historical powder flasks. These appear to date from the early 19th century, one in pewter, one in leather. They have usual wear for age. The pewter one lacks a lever on the fill tube, and the leather one is missing the tube entirely. The leather one may be a shot pouch rather than a powder flask.

    The leather is embossed from the inside on both sides, with a what looks like a rabbit, pheasant and deer motif. The pewter is repoussed with a leaping hound and a pheasant.

    As found, a nice addition to a collection of accoutrements.

  • German 98K Butcher Bayonet, Hartkopf/Dietrich

    This bayonet is marked on the left by Gebr. Hartkopf, Solingen, the maker, and on the right by C Dietrich, Altenburg, the retailer. It may be private purchase rather than issue.

    The blade is clean and unsharpened with no pitting, but has some age wear, and frosting, more toward the hilt. There is a single significant rust spot that may clean off.

    The latch works. The hilt has dings and chips to the wood, typical for age. The pommel is oxidized but not pitted, and appears to have an imperial mark above the latch. The guard has some oxidation but retains much of its polish.

    The scabbard is undented, retains what appears to be some of the original paint over a factory finish, with minimal scratching and wear. The throat is tight.

    The attached tag is from a former owner, who had it in on display in the Fort Harrison Museum for several years.

  • German Mauser Bayonet ASW Marked, Horster Made

    The ASW is a marking of E & F Horster company, and I believe the "43" is the year of production.

    The blade is unsharpened and in superb condition, with only a little scuffing near the tip from being drawn.

    The bakelite grips are likewise in excellent plus condition, with a single notable ding. The pommel and guard are factory finished, retain most of their blue, with only some very faint patina starting to form. The left side of the pommel bears two official cartouches above the latch. The latch is strong. The blast plate does have scratches and dings from being drawn and mounted.

    The scabbard has several dents that do not affect function. What appears to be factory paint is present, about 50%, with scratches and dings. There are markings on both sides of the throat. The throat is tight with an undamaged screw.

    The attached tag is from the Fort Harrison Museum, where a former owner had it on display.

  • 1930s German Firefighter's Dress "Bayonet"

    This is an item of uniform dress. It does not actually attach to a weapon and does not have a mount. Believed to be from the late 1930s.

    Nickel plated, unsharpened, as from the maker. When it reached us, it was stuck closed with a thick layer of grease. The blade is as pristine it could possibly be after 70 years.

    The guard and bird's head pommel have light oxidation and frosting.

    The scabbard retains much of its paint, but does have some oxidation and darkening. The tip is rubbed bare in spots.

    The frog is intact and supple with some popped stitching, but the stitching remains tight.

    Based on the marker's mark, this blade was manufactured by Carl Lutters & Cie (Lowenwerk) Solingen.

  • Magazine for German MG-13 machine gun

    This is a very good condition magazine for the M-13.

    The body is clean overall with some aging around the catches.

    The follower is clean and shiny, aligns correctly, and the spring is strong. I do not have the gun, but a test by hand suggests it is fully functional.

    Returnable if it fails to function, only.

  • Czech Mauser VZ24 Bayonet with Frog, CSZ D Marked

    The blade is in near mint shape with only a little scuffing on the spine.

    The latch appears to function properly, but protrudes slightly. Possibly there is some grit underneath.

    The pommel is dark with even patina, about 30% of original blue showing. It has dimples from hammering or peening.

    The guard is evenly aged and clean.

    The hilt scales are original and tight with some dings.

    The scabbard is evenly oxidized, original blue showing on the rear. It has a few small dents along the sides from being banged around. The drag tip wobbles but is attached.

    The frog is supple, in decent shape with some cracking, but loose and may not be original to this piece. The stitching is intact and tight.

  • Mauser Parade Bayonet, German

    This is a parade bayonet made by E. & F. Horster, Solingen.

    The nickeled blade is clean, unsharpened, bright, with a few spare and faint scuffs and nicks.

    The grips are intact, very minorly worn at the edges, and tight. The pommel has oxidation typical for age, and some light blistering. The latch works strongly. There is an ID sticker from a museum on the left side. The guard likewise has some freckling and graying. Note that the guard does not have a relief, so it can't actually be mounted to a rifle. The leather washer is present, intact and supple.

    The scabbard is undented but the paint has some wear and chips as shown. The remaining paint is original and glossy black. The museum sticker is repeated on the rear.

    The frog is one I haven't seen before, but appears to be original. The rivets have some green oxidation I have not removed. The leather is supple. The stitching is intact.

  • PODIUM BANNER FROM NAZI GERMANY

    Once again I have to stress this is an historical artifact and in no way shows any sympathy for National Socialists, or any other kind of socialists.

    Previously owned by a retired USAF officer. This appears to have been brought back late or post War.

    It measures approximately 31" x 56".

    Clean overall, some faint creases from storage, but no apparent damage from them. The textile feels accurate for the era and age. The colors are sharp and bright.

    Would work as a backdrop for a collection of WWII German militaria and weapons.

    As with all our artifacts, if you determine you don't like it or question its authenticity, it may be returned in original condition for a full refund.

  • Lewis Aircraft Propeller L6FK-3-52

    This is a L6FK-3-52 propeller, 72" tip to tip, made for a Globe Swift GC1B aircraft with a Continental C-125 engine. It is marked accordingly as shown in the photos.

    There are a couple of dings and delaminations, so I can't say how functional it is, and of course, it would have to be FAA inspected for airworthiness.

    The hub in the center bears the logo of Continental engines.

    Sold as is, as a great centerpiece for an aircraft memorabilia collection or home decoration. If you are able to make it work for a hovercraft or other project, by all means do so.

    Weight is 18 lbs. However, local pickup is available in the Indianapolis area, for free.

It functions perfectly.

    Tang is 1/2" X 5/16" tapering down to the ferrule at the rear.

    We will accept bids until 21 June, 2018, after which, you will have 30 days to pay by MO or check.

  • Bazooka Rocket, Inert, Training M7A1

  • SA Dress Dagger With Suspension, Arthur Evertz

    This is an SA dagger, with the maker's mark of Arthur Evertz.

    The blade is clean with crisp etching. Some staining and light frosting. There are two almost imperceptible dings on one edge. There are some faint scuffs that may indicate an attempt at sharpening, but there are no significant gouges or scratches.

    The fittings have some frosting typical for age, but no blistering. There are some minimal missing flakes.

    The hilt has small visible cracks at each end, one tiny chip, and faint scratches. The waffenamt and inlay have some burnishing and wear but are intact and complete.

    The scabbard is very snug. There is some staining and age to the lacquer, but the color is complete and even. The tip has one faint ding, and both tip and throat are oxidized typical for age. The screws are largely unbuggered.

    The suspension leather is supple with some surface cracking. The latch and buckle are functional. Included is a tag from the Fort Harrison Museum, where the previous owner loaned his collection.

    More pictures and closeups on request.

    As with all artifacts, I offer an unconditional return policy. If you are not happy with it at any time, return it for refund.

    I shouldn't have to state that I have zero sympathy for this National Socialist Democratic organization, but we live in a butthurt generation so I'll say it. This is sold as a collectible of a destroyed regime, much like Mosin-Nagants, Arisakas and Carcanos.

    A nice example of a rare specimen.

  • Golok

    I believe this to be Indonesian. It dates from late to post WWII.

    16-3/8" blade, 21-3/8" OAL. Blade is billet steel, tapering from 1/4" thick at the hilt, 2" wide. Chisel beveled on left side. Well patinated but no deep pits. Some recent surface corrosion (appears brown). The tip shows signs of resharpening.

    Hilt is 5", buffalo horn with an iron collar. The horn has some cracks and delaminations typical for age. Collar is brazed.

    Scabbard is two lames of dark wood. The tip cover is interlock-fastened tortoise shell held in place with nailed brass bands, with a small amount of dot repousse on the tip band. The shell is worn but with no significant cracks. The throat cover is interlock-fastened leather secured with a nailed brass band top, and a nailed brass band bottom, where part of the wrap becomes a belt or sash frog. The throat band is in rough shape, battered and with missing nails. The exposed wood between the wraps has a worn opening that exposes the blade on draw. There are some longitudinal cracks under the throat wrap.

    The blade draws easily with a little tightness toward the swell.

  • Japanese Artillery Short Sword

    From the estate collection of Professor Henry Karlson, IUPUI law professor and advisor to the Indiana Supreme Court.

    Just predating the Russo-Japanese War.

    The first line of text reads Tokyou Hou-hei Kousho (Tokyo Army/Navy Armory)

    The second reads Meiji 36 (1903).

    The third means "Manufactured in".

    This piece is in excellent shape, with very little patina on the unsharpened blade. The handle scales are original and intact, but slightly loose. Arsenal paint on the fittings is largely complete, with some scuffing. Scabbard throat is slightly loose vertically. Scabbard fits well. The tip is missing the retention staple, but is affixed with contact cement. Stitching is intact. Leather collar is complete and supple. Further photos available on request.

  • Pair of Turkish-style Jambiya

    A pair of Turkish style jambiya. Included is the accession card from their display in the Indiana State Museum.

    It is very unlikely that either story on the card is factual. Fanciful tails get assigned to lots of foreign objects, and nothing about these pieces suggests they were made for heavy use. However, the card is part of their history and comes with them.

    The brass and leather (appears to be goatskin) both show expected wear for age. The blades are in good condition, but I can't attest to their temper.

    Interesting collectibles, probably made as collectibles, over a century ago.
