If not for the stamp I would have voted Police General.

In any case beautiful piece. You and your son have cornered the police collecting market it seems Wink

As you can see from the cut into the backing material at the joint of the wing (-- the backing to be folded over to be stitched onto the tunic ) and the stitch holes ,
---this eagle ACTUAL had been sewn to a tunic !

Very cool photo.Almost looks like a gun turrent ahead of the crew compartment. Interesting choice of flag....a state service flag? Nice spotlight too.

All these items are rare and hard to find today.
I just recently missed out on a near mint WSP Aluminum buckle dated 1938 with the original belt.

Been wanting an original dagger with the grip emblem forever. But seems most all of them have been "modified" or questionable. Wanted a textbook example...finally...as though a dream come true..one has become aviliable that has met my criteria for this rare model. It's on it's way to me now.
Can't wait. I'll share it with you when it arrives.

Serge,

The piece you're referring to wouldn't have been the one off Eban a week ago, would it?

Hi Bill. That is an interesting photo. The state service flag was the standard banner for all police buildings, camps, etc., so it was appropriate to show it on a vessel. It wouldn't have had a license plate. I wonder what is on the jack-staff at the bow? Do you think that circular thing that looks like a gun mount was an engine access area? The ship was inboard, as you can see the engine cooling water discharging out the side below and in front of the policemen standing at the con.

Billy....it finally flew in today.
I been wanting to find one of these for years that was "texbook" and unmolested (improved by well meaning collector/s). Along with the Army dagger that the Vet brought back it looks to me the last person who put on the hangers on the scabbard was the German.
This WPP dagger made my Christmas.

The blue leather on this dagger and the way it is singed by the brass wire gives a marvelous appeal to this scarce model.

From my understanding this type of "Solid Police" emblem is considered textbook for this maker. Were is that "textbook" on these anyway? Razz
Don't know enough yet about varients. Info is hard to find.

Nice!

The AWS mark makes it a rather late in the game production, which make it even better. Most of us have never seen one of these outside of 'textbooks', and to actually have a full rig like that, amazing. Who says that e-ban is just junk?

Thanks Billy and John.

I've run across some scarce daggers in the past but not this model. Just going on that it's got to be scarce.

Serge - it's a Real Beauty(!) CONGRATS!

Can you take a foto the finial / cap piece? I'd read something about the 'cat tails' on these, but I admittedly know very little about this rarely seen WSP Dagger.

Good Going on acquiring this Super Dagger for your fine collection. ...Dave/dblmed

Hello,

Thanks for posting.

The tunic is interesting. Is it cotton? The shoulder boards look good, but the tunic should have sleeve braid. Any evidence of there ever being any applied? Any maker or issue stamps inside?

Unfortunately, NCO sleeve eagles were never named.

These tunics are EXTREMELY rare, and most were rebadged and used after the war.

The sleeve eagle you show is indeed one generally considered to be a reproduction, sorry. That does not mean the tunic is bad. I have never seen a WSP tunic offered for sale with a good eagle. They are just too rare.

Regards,
William Unland

william, thanks. no noticable braid removal. no other markings noticed (I'll look again). surprized on the patch, as I havenot seen any like it for sale. ussually repros run in large groups to notice. it will stay till further notice. question ; why do these boards have yellow under lay, as most here seem to have blue ????. might it all be post war ?(afraid to ask...) even the intertwined cords are yellow. jeff h.

Here is the more typical version of the reproduction sleeve eagle. I have seen it with "Wasserschutzpolizei" in the past but never saved the photo.
