    The locking stud is also numbered 50. It’s hard to get a good picture of it.

    Pre war photo card

    Most likely a pre-war photo card. I hope that Officer wiped those fingerprints off of that blade before he put the sword away!!

    #MeToo

    My wish for 2019 also.

    Thanks again to Santa Waffenmeister for enabling me to buy back that K 43 qve 45 that I sold back in 2009 to buy a new Mustang Bullitt. I regretted selling that mint crisp...

    At our show (Allentown, PA) we Police the show for flea market junk (T-shirts, beef jerky, jewelry, etc,) but not for reproduction TR items. I brought this current controversy to the Board of...

    The dealer is not banned, only the questionable items are. If the dealer only displays original pre 1945 items there should not be a problem, correct?

    Nice Eickhorn

    Nice one! That scabbard has kept that blade minty for the past 70 odd years and will do so well into the future. Just don’t let anyone put their fingers on it!!

    The blade looks like it has some pitting on the Eickhorn logo, or just a bad photo?
    If it’s pitted you will have a tough time selling it down the road. Offer 750 - 850 imho.

    Unit markings

    Maybe 30% with unit markings, famous units commanding a few more dollars. More importantly to me is the condition of the blade. The blade on this one looks a bit dodgy, maybe just a bad photo?

    A dime a dozen

    Not following procedures!

    Yes, that is what I got out of the second document. From what I read, a lot of senior SS did not buy into this pseudo religious nonsense that v. Knobelsdorff and others at Wewelsburg were promoting,...
