Re: Period Ring Shapes Gaspare 02/27/2021 03:44 PM
here's a wonderful collection spanning a pretty wide time period but all what we like to collect. [So sorry I can not remember who sent it to give credit]..

But what do we see,,all have this taper..

A ring appears that is something never seen before. Very rare organizationally. The enamel looks the part almost.. But has a wide band, really wide like the size of the cartouche going almost all way round.. Some of us collecting rings 40 years. There are regular jewelry collectors also [not military theme]. Most of us will tell you the same thing,,,walk away..
50 years from now won't matter. The Horned Viking head ring will be considered authentic. But for now ,,for yourself and those who will have them after your gone,,,Look and sometimes you just have to let it go.., Thanks, comments always welcomed...,G.

I'm with you - one of the fly-speckers, but mostly in regard to SS daggers.

Boring to some, but such knowledge has saved me time and again from from unwise purchases ... and helped me advise others as well. But, I am an Engineer so such curiosity comes naturally grin

Hello Wotan and Dave

- You have a good point concerning the middle section; I agree, you have to drill there first, before you can do the saw through the hole and saw the middle section open.
I didn’t see that. You are right here Wotan.



-There are also other drill holes that explain my vision: making a drill hole on the end, so you will not saw too far. All is on a very small scale!
The maker first made scratch or pencil lines, a design of the initials on the gold plate. Look at the inside corners of the M ; in the corners you can see that the corners are a round ; in the drawing, on the end of the inside vertical lines of the M, the maker has marked a point for the drilling hole, first . The drilling hole was more or less, in the middle of the line,
see here -----------------0 ( sawing line and hole) . The saw goes up and meets the drill hole in the middle .The result we see : the inside left line of the M ends a bit more to the left , the right line ends a bit to the right.

For me, both techniques are you used in this ring.

Re: SS Dagger help needed P.D. Luneschloss Martin Knight 02/20/2021 07:07 PM
Hi Dutchdrummer and others!

I am picking up on a REALLY old thread here and the reason is that I am very interested in the transitional P.D. Lüneschloss SS-dagger dealt with in the thread. Must be an extremely rare dagger and if someone who is an owner of such a dagger would care to post some pictures of it here or PM me if they don't want to share them here on the forum, I would appreciate very much. Also, I am not here to judge, but to learn, and I find this particular model very interesting.

All the best to all collectors out there!

Re: Flak ring Gaspare 02/20/2021 04:31 PM
Very rare ring! Probably only other rare pattern from this series would be the Panzer ring...

I saw a photo of the whole series couple years ago!
The owner would not sell the photo, nor let me use for my research,,[worried about copies etc. being made from photo]. I did manage a quick note I hurriedly made with one hand while oogling the photo [tough trick!] anyway,,,

The series all the same material, all had a silver wash that probably came off within weeks if not days] all the same leaf pattern on side band.. There is the few you mention,,and also a big skull, a soldier blowing bugle,,and IF I remember ring a bunker similar to a WW ring. . Yes it would be nice to have the complete set!!!

Lancaster Bomber Photos Dave 02/18/2021 07:54 PM
The link below will take you to an article on the restoration of a Lancaster WWII bomber.

The photos are incredible:

PS: If you look carefully, a couple of the photos show a de Havilland Mosquito in the background

Re: Thoughts on SA Dagger? Dave 02/18/2021 05:15 PM
The dagger is a genuine and complete early SA dagger made by Kober. But ...

- The blade was once rusted and has been overly cleaned

- At some point, the blade was loose in the grip and (probably) children twisted it left and right, causing the pattern you see in the lower guard, the gap, and the unusual wear to the tang.

- The scabbard has been repainted quite recently

It would be a hard sell in the US, but might fetch $300

Re: 2nd Model Luftwaffe Dagger ORPO 02/15/2021 03:05 PM
The problem with the "fat grip" on this dagger is it is the same as seen on many Luftwaffe Atwood Luftwaffe "parts daggers". So, it is hard to tell the difference between a wartime or a postwar assembled dagger grip. Personally, I avoid these particular 2nd Luftwaffe daggers as it is known this Krebs mark was reproduced on postwar Luftwaffe and thin blade RAD Sr. daggers.

Dave, that is a good possibility . Maybe for office people of the Westwall or so ? Or as a memory for an offical visit at the Westwall....... .Just some thoughts .

Benten


Given the small size, could be also for a side cap or other (military) headwear?

gerdhagedorn
That is also a good option, Gerd .

Re: Photos of the Warsaw Ghetto ed773 02/05/2021 02:25 AM
The PPD and PPSH were very close to the MP40 in design and operation.
The Germans converted a lot of the Russian PP's to shoot the 9x19. They already new the weapon inside and out.
Both the MP and PP's are still used today.
Most of us WWll guys would love to have a MP 40.
