Buying & Selling WW2 Artifacts in Brentwood, TN

The items displayed on this page do not reflect what the politically correct naysayers would have you believe.  These WW2 artifacts are not about Nazi sympathy, anti-Semitism, or some type of radical neo-Nazi support.  Quite simply these items were war trophies brought back by WWII veterans.  These brave men, many of them barely old enough to vote, faced an evil and sinister enemy and defeated them on battlefields from the shores of Normandy to the shores of Iwo Jima.  To these men, the phrase "to the victor belong the spoils" was a common sentiment.  Each of these items came at a heavy price that too many today don't understand or appreciate.

We are losing our WWII vets at an alarming rate.  Please consider picking up the tab at restaurants or the grocery store when you encounter them to let them know their service and their sacrifice is appreciated.  Threy truly are the Greatest Generation.

Signed Photo of General Douglas MacArthur

General of the Army Douglas MacArthur was an American five-star general and Field Marshal of the Philippine Army. He was Chief of Staff of the United States Army during the 1930s and played a prominent role in the Pacific theater during World War II.  He oversaw the successful Allied occupation of postwar Japan and led United Nations forces in the Korean War (1950-1953).  His most famous quote was "Old soldiers never die, they just fade away".

A little Civil War trivia - Douglas MacArthur's father was Lieutenant General Arthur MacArthur who fought right here in the Battle of Franklin.  He earned the Medal of Honor for his actions at Missionary Ridge.  In fact, Arthur MacArthur and Douglas MacArthur became the first father/son duo to win the Medal of Honor.

This is quite scarce as MacArthur did not like signing autographs.

2nd Model Naval Dagger – Carl Eickhorn

This Eickhorn 2nd Model Naval Dagger is a textbook example with a highest quality hilt and scabbard. The pommel shows little wear and has fine detailing throughout.  The off-white celluloid over wood grip is in perfect condition throughout. It is tightly wrapped with twisted brass wire. The original-to-the-piece aluminum portepee is still in place. The scabbard is also in fine condition. There are no dents and the obverse retains about 80% of the original gilding. The reverse shows some wear to the gilding between the carrying bands as well as a small amount to the lower portion of the scabbard. The gilding here is about 70% intact. The carrying bands are decorated with outstanding overlapping oak leaves and acorns.  The double etched blade of this dagger is in mint condition. It is completely mirror-bright with a fine, needle-like tip and retains 100% of the frosting behind the etch. The fouled anchor motif really jumps off the blade and is among the best you will ever see. The reverse ricasso of the blade is stamped with the “Over the Shoulder” Eickhorn Squirrel trademark first used in 1941, and the original brown felt blade buffer is in place.  A very fine Eickhorn Naval Dagger here.

Again, this dagger has been in my father's collection since the 1970's
