WW2 German Luftwaffe Officer's Presentation
In superb condition, a Paul Weyersberg Solingen made German WW2
Luftwaffe 2nd Pattern dagger with damascened blade awarded to Feldwebel
Hans Krupp for special bravery in aerial combat.
100% authentic and correct etched damascened pattern bladed 2nd
Pattern Luftwaffe presentation dagger awarded to flight sergeant
Hans Krupp; this lower ranks presentation dagger has none of the
senior officer gold leaf work to the raised eagles, swastikas and
wording on the blade. 25cm blade etched with the airman's name between
swastika holding Nazi eagles one side, "fur besondere Tapferkeit
im Luftkampf." (for special bravery in aerial combat)"
and Herman Göring's signature below the maker's mark the other
side. My limited research indicates Hans Krupp was a successful
German airman, achieved the rank of flight lieutenant and received
other awards for bravery; I think here lies a superb opportunity
for someone to do research. Truly, these rare fine daggers can easily
sell for twice the price ask for here; just £xxx (too late).
