Collectors

A while back a collector passed and wife sold some things!

This collector kept records and such for his items!


This Hj knive was among the items!


Collector myth! Or should I say dealer myth on selling them!

Here is a pic!

Hello pvon, these knives were first offered many years ago by a german dealer whose items, especially engraved, etched and high end items, let´s say, mostly are avoided by serious, experienced and honest collectors. There is an intersting thread over thee at WAF about those knives. If I remember right in the thread there was prooved that these knives are postwar products.
Regards,

Always want to remind collectors!

Some dealers have selling for a long time!

The aluminium hilt and the white stag grips are an easy proof that these were not made back in 1935.

Offered by the dozens on shows about a decade ago, now popping up in collections all over the world...

Best regards,

Herman

I almost bought one when I was new and learning, very happy I didn’t plunk hard-earned money down on one!
