  A friend of my wife brought these items by and asked if I was interested in purchasing them.  Her husbands grandfather brought them back.  I believe she said he passed away about 10 years ago.  The items were recently discovered in a trunk in the attic of the family home.  The veteran was Major Charles D. Young  (retired Lt. Col) 59th Armored Infantry Battalion, 13th Armored Division.  The SA dagger is marked Daniel Peres Solingen and the army dagger is Eickhorn Solingen.   Eagle is SS.  The belt seems to be made out of a fine wire and the buckle looks to be aluminum.   It never ceases to amaze me that families have no attachment to items brought back by their relatives.  If anyone has any info on the maker Daniel Peres please PM me, I could not find much on this company.

Wow the condition is just outstanding. Looks like an early model SA and the anodizing is beautiful. You should post that on the world militaria forum

The belt on the inside has what looks like some moth nips other than that I can find no damage or rust of any kind on anything.

Yes everything is, I was actually amazed at how good everything looked.  I was told there was also a sword that another family member received.  I would assume it is also in great condition, keeping my fingers crossed on that one.

That is a very nice pile! Congrats and the condition is hard to imagine that everything is in such pristine condition. That SS eagle is a dandy and that is indeed a rare dagger maker. What a great Thanksgiving for you.

 

Thanks for sharing with us.

 

Kurt

 

PS, best kind of Black Friday deal.

Posted this group about a year ago, but just recently received the 13th Armored Division book from the grandson.  I wanted to post a picture of the vet who brought these items home, Major Charles D. Young, ret. Lt Col.

Just to share the mindset of some family . . . we have known some family of WWII vets who found bring-back items and the whole idea of Nazi items in their house was beyond what they wanted. They kept the stuff that was the vet's own, but not the actual Nazi items (I know you will say that technically it is TR, but I'm saying what the common person who isn't immersed in this says). So, don't judge the family too harshly for getting rid of bring-backs. Some families, sure, don't value the memory or the service of their vet at all. But some do, just don't want the enemy items. Can't say I blame them. I feel much the same way. If I had a Pacfic WWII vet in the family, and had a Japanese bring-back . . . I don't think I could stand to even hold it once.
