  • Sale! GERMANY - BAYONET - PRIVATE-PURCHASE - SAWTOOTH -LUFTSCHIFFER BATAILLON OFFICER

    GERMANY – BAYONET – PRIVATE-PURCHASE – SAWTOOTH -LUFTSCHIFFER BATAILLON OFFICER

    SKU: 07-184 XCO

    $1,695.00 $1,395.00

    GERMANY – BAYONET – PRIVATE-PURCHASE – SAWTOOTH -LUFTSCHIFFER BATAILLON OFFICER.

    It is a privately-purchased, Luftschiffer Battalion Officer’s, saw-tooth bayonet. The saw-tooth bayonets were one of the Imperial German Army’s most fearsome weapons. They caused grievous wounds both when they were plunged in and then when they were removed from a body. It was a horrible way to die. Allied soldiers were so incensed by the discovery of saw-tooth bayonets that German soldiers captured with them were themselves carved up with them. Often, German soldiers who sensed they were about to be captured simply disposed of their bayonets, then denied owning them.

    This particular example was meant purely for display purposes, or for use on parade. To begin with, the bayonet lacks a scabbard. One might consider this a huge flaw, but in reality its new owner would want to display it to reveal the blade in all its glory. This is particularly important because the bayonet is identified to a “Leutnant Herbert Schreiterer,” which allows one to research its original owner. The opposite side of the blade is inscribed “D. Offz.-Korps d. Feld Luftschiffer-Abt. L2 z. Erg. a.d. Feldzug 1914-15.” The inscription informs us that it was a gift from his fellow Luftschiffer Abteilung officers sometime during 1914 to 1915. Gifts like these were common in the Imperial German Army when an officer had completed his stint with one unit and was making his move to a new one. Clearly, this man had served in a Luftschiffer command for approximately two years. What did he do past 1915? Some further research may answer that question……..

  • BAVARIA - PILOT BADGE - ARMY - COMMEMORATIVE

    BAVARIA – PILOT BADGE – ARMY – COMMEMORATIVE

    SKU: 14-466 XDG

    $1,495.00

    The primary difference in the Army Commemorative Pilot Badge is that it has an open or cut out design. Within that cut out design we see an Eagle in flight over the landscape below. The much larger Wittelsbach crown for Bavaria is at the top of a wreath of Laurel and Oak leaves which are tied by a ribbon at the bottom.

    On the reverse we see a handsome swollen or coke bottle pin. There is a bit of a twist at the tip of the pin. This most likely comes from piercing a tunic. As this is a two piece badge there are two small weep holes. One at the top and one at the bottom. There is no sign of hallmarking but do be aware this is a badge of the highest quality and is in excellent condition…..

    ANHALT – PICKELHAUBE – OFFICER- INFANTERIE-REGIMENT NR 93.

    SKU: 04-800 XKGJT

    $4,995.00

    This pickelhaube is all original. The leather body exhibits some spidering and one gouge which we will show in our photographs. The bulk of the furniture is brass which includes the flat chin scales, wappen officer stars, spike, etc. The only silver toned piece is the star with the coat of arms of the Duchy of Anhalt. This is superimposed over the center of the Prussian Eagle. The other detail to the exterior of this spike helmet are the Kokarden. These are not the Prussian style but rather those used by Saxony, Württemberg, Baden, etc. In my opinion these kokarden are far more beautiful and show off the pickelhaube to greater advantage…….

    This is a leather body that is from a Bavarian officer pickelhaube.

    If you are looking for the basis of a pickelhaube. While Bavarian it might possibly be used for other states or regiments that used a square visor as opposed to rounded. The only metal pieces attached to the helmet are the front visor trim and the rear trim. In the interior there is the officer brown leather sweatband attached.

As these uniforms were smaller, they needed smaller decorations to keep things to scale, thus Prinzengroße size. But then officers and aristocrats who wanted something different from their award decorations, might choose to wear a Prinzengroße sized award……
