American Police hat c1930s We think this is a 1930s American Police hat. Going by the design on the badge probably North Carolina. Whether it is State Police or a local sheriff's department we cannot tell. It would appear to be rare as we have spent several weeks tryng to research this and cannot find similar.- if anyone knows or has any info please let us know. The leatherwork on the hat is in good condition. The cotton fabric top is in good condition except for two small holes- please see photo.
Antique Kosher Khalef Sharpening Steel We believe this to be a sharpening steel as used by Kosher butchers. The sharpening and use of knives had and has specific rules. Our reason to think that this item is related to the rules of kosher butchering is simply that we have seen a very similar antique item in an auction complete with documentation. It could also be merely a steel for sharpening hunting knives. Steel length = 18 cm long x 4cm wide handle = 8cm There is what appears to be a bull's head in brass holding the top of the steel to the handle. There is a maker's mark hich appears to be 2 x crossed arrows.

Belgian Sea Service Flintlock pistol (customized. ) This pistol seems to have had an interesting history with perhaps a good story behind it if only it could speak. It is a Belgian Sea Service pistol which has been customized with good brass studding and the addition of a ramrod. As these pistols were widely available to all European seamen during the Napoleonic Wars period the story could be one of capture and customization by anyone or customized on purchase. Who knows, but it is , for us 200 years later, a handsome piece of history. Walnut stock Brass fittings and trigger guard. All over quality brass studwork. Under-barrel ramrod and steel lanyard rings. No visible stamps or markings. 41 cm overall length.
BILL HOOK / HALBERD/NEWCASTLE BILL A little piece, or who knows, maybe a big piece, of history. This bill-hook or halberd is what is commonly described as the Newcastle type. The 36cm broad double hooked steel blade stamped W.H., the tang inserted into the ebonised wood haft, 165cm long overall . From Wiki "The bill is similar in size, function and appearance to the halberd, and might be said to represent convergent evolution to fill a common niche: a pole-arm with a point to thrust with, a hook to drag with, and a spike/axe to cut with. The bill should not be conflated with a war-scythe, another pole-arm adapted from an agricultural implement, the scythe." Collection only. Will pack if buyer wishes to arrange courier service.

Executioner's / Justice sword- German 16th/17th century We believe this sword to be an executioner's (/punisher's / justice) sword of German origin. It is possibly quite an early one as the blade tip is not cut off square. Blade approx 39.5" overall length approx 50" There is an inscription in the fuller on both sides which is of the general wording of this type of sword as far as we can translate, but e are unable to make a full translation. Although the blade and hilt are solid, it is aged and has pitting and blacking, obscuring any maker's marks and engravings other than the lettering in the fuller. This is a rare and interesting item. There is no scabbard. WE REGRET WE CANNOT POST THIS ITEM OUT- IT CAN ONLY BE COLLECTED FROM US,.
Firangi - Indian Sword All iron Firangi sword. Good overall condition. No etching or pattern visible. No visible makers marks. overall length: 44" approx Blade length 38" approx Single edge backsword Khanda style hilt (Indian basket hilt) with 4.5" prominent spike making it possible to use as a to handed sword. There is no scabbard or sheath with this sword. From Wikipedia "Because of its length the firangi is usually regarded as primarily a cavalry weapon. Illustrations suggest a 16th-century date for the development of the sword, though early examples appear to have had simpler cross-guard hilts, similar to those of the talwar. The sword has been especially associated with the Marathas, who were famed for their cavalry. However, the firangi was widely used by the Mughals and those peoples who came under their rule, including Sikhs and Rajputs. Images of Mughal potentates holding firangis, or accompanied by retainers carrying their masters' firangis, suggest that the sword became a symbol of martial virtue and power. Photographs of Indian officers of Hodson's Horse (an irregular cavalry unit raised by the British) show that the firangi was still in active use at the time of the Indian Mutiny in 1857-58."

FULLER PHONE MK IV For information about the Fuller phone, please refer to this excellent website. This example of a Mark IV (the most common type used WW1 and WW2 is not in a wooden case, but certainly looks the part for a display.

Genuine Western Wooly Step-ins Shotgun Chaps Calgary´s Original Western Store since 1901. A pair of original Angora Western Chaps. Anybody knowing about these sort of chaps will appreciate just how expensive they can be to buy. I think these are offered here at a very reasonable price. This is because there is some damage to the leather on one leg, which cannot actually be seen unless yo are looking for it, andprobably would not be very difficult to repair. Other than this they are in excellent condition. They are canvas lined and are originally from a well known maker dating back to 1901 in Calgary.

Indonesian Kris (wood sheath) The Kris from Indonesian archipelago is arguably the most interesting of ethic knives. From Wiki The Kris from Indonesian archipelago is argably the most interesting of ethic knives. From Wiki Both a weapon and spiritual object, kris are often considered to have an essence or presence, considered to possess magical powers, with some blades possessing good luck and others possessing bad.[5] Kris are used for display, as talismans with magical powers, weapons, a sanctified heirloom (pusaka), auxiliary equipment for court soldiers, an accessory for ceremonial dress, an indicator of social status, a symbol of heroism, etc.[5] Legendary kris that possess supernatural power and extraordinary ability were mentioned in traditional folktales, such as those of Mpu Gandring, Taming Sari, and Setan Kober. In 2005, UNESCO gave the title Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity to the kris of Indonesia. In return, UNESCO urged Indonesia to preserve their heritage.[5] According to traditional Javanese kejawen, kris contain all the intrinsic elements of nature: tirta (water), bayu (wind), agni (fire), bantolo (earth, but also interpreted as metal or wood which both come from the earth), and aku (lit: "I" or "me", meaning that the kris has a spirit or soul). All these elements are present during the forging of kris. Earth is metal forged by fire being blown by pumped wind, and water to cool down the metal.[15] In Bali, the kris is associated with the nāga or dragon, which also symbolizes irrigation canals, rivers, springs, wells, spouts, waterfalls and rainbows; thus, the wavy blade symbolizes the movement of the serpent. Some kris have a naga or serpent head carved near the base with the body and tail following the curves of the blade to the tip. A wavy kris is thus a naga in motion, aggressive and alive. The distinctive pamor patterns have specific meanings and names which indicate the special magical properties they are believed to impart. There are around 60 variants of pamor recognized today in traditional kris blades. Some examples of pamor include beras wutah, udan mas, kembang kacang, kembang pala and ladrang cendana. The kris blade forging uses iron with a small content of nickel to create this pattern. The faint pamor pattern has been found in the kris from Majapahit period, which was acquired from iron ores with small nickel content. Most probably this iron ore was imported from the island of Sulawesi, as the pamor Luwu from Luwu region is quite well known in Sulawesi and Java. This example has a plain wooden scabbard and guard Blade length 27cm Overall length 35 cm The blade shows a representation of the 'Pamor' as described in the c/p from Wiki above. Please see photos. We do not know enough about these knives to decide the age or composition of the manufacture.

PCR RECEIVER PYE INVICTA A valve based broadcast receiver developed by Pye Radio Works Ltd in Cambridge (UK) and was produced from April 1944 onwards by Pye , Phillips Lamps Ltd in London and Invicta Radio. During WW2 a small number was supplied to resistance groups in Norway France and the Netherlands, probably for the reception of coded messages that were broadcast via the BBC. After the war it was used as an Army Welfare Receiver. Although PCR means portable Communications Receiver, this is housed in a 19"x 9" x 10" metal enclosure and needs an external mains power supply. It is housed in the cabinet of a wireless Set no 19 (WS19) and is constructed with many common parts with the WS-19 and the WS -22 It is A piece of wire is used as an antenna.

Percussion pistol by Mortimer London A good percussion pistol by Mortimer- a well known and respected maker. Engraved 'Mortimer' on the lock and etched 'London ' in fancy script and scrollwork on the barrel. Overall pleasing patina to metalwork and woodwork is good with no cracks - nice old polished finish.

Percussion Pistol by Reeves, Greaves and Co A percussion pistol by Reeves, Greaves & Co. A good quality pistol in very good condition for age. The woodwork is good with no cracks or breaks. The metalwork is also good and the action is in good working order. There is a saftey catch, which works, but the finial is missing. Because there is no visible damage here, and the bar is very smooth, it would lead one to speculate that the finial had been deliberately removed and smoothed to appear that there had never been one. This does not detract from the pistol's appearance at all nor does it interfere with the working parts.

Puerto-Seguro 1907 Pattern -Spanish Military Sword Marked on ricasso "Artilleria Fca Nacional Toledo" This example has ivory/bone chequered grips. "There were versions for Cavalry and Infantry Officer's, taking part extensively in the Morocco War of the 1920's. Previous patterns were modified to fit blades of the new system. Even after the Spanish Civil War, some corps as the Civil Guard adopted it for their cavalry troopers. This sword was the last Spanish sabre or sword pattern adopted for troopers, and thus its historical importance. On the other hand, considering the condition of surviving pieces, it proved to be resistant enough, and was produced in big quantities."

Springfield 1873 Trowel Bayonet Taken from "The United States first experimented with a combination trowel and bayonet in 1868, producing 200 experimental examples made from standard socket bayonets. This was immediately followed by an additional 500 Model 1869 trowel bayonets made new. These were distributed to a few companies of the infantry to test in the field. Remarkably, the trials reports were overwhelmingly positive. The US infantryman at that time did not carry any sort of entrenching tool, and so even an awkward combination tool was an improvement over a canteen cup or other ad hoc tool for digging. The bayonet was seen by some officers as becoming obsolete with the introduction of breechloading rifles, so the reduced effectiveness of the new item as a bayonet was not a substantial concern. The intended use of these tools was not to dig elaborate trenches, but rather to hastily construct a shallow ditch and embankment which would provide just enough cover to shelter a prone soldier. With the trials reports in, the government purchased 10,000 of the improved 1873 pattern trowel bayonet, which featured a stronger blade and a much more comfortable handle for digging. These were issued and used in the field (and in several combat engagements), but the developmental direction turned towards combination knife trowels instead of bayonets, and there would be no further development or issue of these tools after the 1870s." This example is one of the 1873 pattern. It looks to have had a bit of use. There is an age patina and some pitting and fogging but the metal is not at all compromised. The surface patina would probably polish off, but IMO would detract from the item. There are a couple of nicks/gimps to the edge as one would expect from an item used in the field and of the order of 150 years old Measurements are - Overall length 14.5" (365mm) Trowel blade length 9.75" (250mm) Width at top of trowel 3.5" (85mm) There are no makers marks or date stamps visible on the item but there are bands of decorative detail on the socket.
SWEPT HILT RAPIER This rapier has all the aging of an original, but not the weight and balance, therefore we believe it to be either a Victorian/ Gothic Revival piece- or a piece made for a museum display, possibly theatrical. It is not edged but it certainly looks the part.
