I agree: The large Deschler w/reattached safety pin is original -- the reattachment appears to be amateurish, possibly by the holder! Sorry that NSDAP Membership Number 1108 is not on my list of...

I tend to agree with Erich and Ron, that the name on this dagger grip crossguard is likely a post-war addition, for the reason that all such personalizations were required to appear on the reverse of...

I like this set, too! The NSDAP Membership Book appears to have been produced in Linz, Austria -- not at NSDAP headquarters in Munich -- in 1933, while the NSDAP was banned in Austria. This book was...

This Kriegsmarine officer appears to be wearing three sleeve rings on his uniform, which indicate the rank of Korvettenkapitän (Lieutenant Commander). Definitely not Karl Dönitz.
