  1. Here is a close-up of the chinstrap and suspension.
  2. Recently picked up what I believe to be a post WWII/Korea painted medic helmet named to a "Vanderpool." Curious to know what information others can provide on the paint job for this one. I'm new to the world of helmets but haven't seen any painted completely white like this one. Thanks to everyone in advance for their insight. --Bob

    SS Dagger

    Hi All, I was wondering if anyone could provide some information on this variation of what appears to be an SS dagger I found in my grandparent's attic while home for the holidays. My grandfather was an infantryman serving in the Rhineland during WWII. The blade itself includes the following proof marks: SS insignia; 188/35; and the encircled letters "RZM" as can be viewed in the image below. Thanks in advance for your insights.
  4. Thank you to everyone for the helpful feedback. I unfortunately don't know a lot about the specifics of my grandfather's service during WWII. He never really wanted to discuss anything and we certainly tried to respect his wishes in that regard. Most of what I learned of his service came from obtaining his DD Form 214 following his passing. I know he saw action during the latter part of the war in the Rhineland. I'll try to post a similar thread on the GunBoards website, although the auction link provided a lot of valuable info...thanks Joe! --188Lieut
  5. My grandfather was a WWII vet who served in the European Theater. Recently he passed and willed me what I believe to be a National Socialist Motor Corps Variation Walther PP in very good condition brought back from overseas. As you can see from the attached images, the NSKK insignia is factory etched on the side with serial number 186912P. I also have what I believe to be the original holster for the pistol still in excellent condition. The inside flap appears to have some faded proof marks which I cannot make out. Are my suspicions correct about this Walther? If so, what is a possible value for the pistol and holster? How rare is this particular Nazi party variation? Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all in advance.
