The straps are the standard lined moire. The long strap is in perfect condition but the shorter strap shows some wear and a few nips on the left edge. This wear is relatively minor, however. The high pile velvet backings remain in good shape.
Some extremely nice Naval Hangers here.

ACCOUHANGERS #42497C 2nd Model Luftwaffe Hangers with Unusual Backings
The snap clip is decorated with fine raise oak leaves and marked "DU 10 RZM" on the reverse. The buckles and slides have the standard pattern of raised oak leaves, and the snap clips are the deluxe, "push-up" style marked "DGRM" on the reverse. It is interesting to note that the hardware has a golden tone about them, something we often see on Luftwaffe hangers. Often times they are confused with General's hangers, but this is purely a coincidence of color.
The brocade straps remain in perfect condition, with textured gray surfaces accent with aluminum trim. They measure about 11 inches long. The reverse of the straps, however, is very interesting. They are light gray in color, similar to those used on a Red Cross piece. I don't know why they differ from the norm but here they are!
A fine set of Luftwaffe Hangers here.

ACCOUHANGERS #42501C Early Brown Leather Vertical SA Hanger
This very rare Vertical SA Hanger is basically the same shape as a pre-RZM SS vertical rig. It does have the coffin shaped backing. The outer surface is finished, while the interior is a rough, unfinished leather.
The strap is retained by a pair of rivets in the "coffin". The snap clip is an early, unmarked "snout nosed" type with a riveted spring.
The lower cross strap is in nice condition, with a decorative trim line. The buckle has a roller at one end.
A great addition to an early SA Dagger here. When we see vertical rigs like this they are usually attributed to mounted SA men or band members, for obvious reasons of ergonomics.

ACCOUHANGERS #42500C Rare Three Piece Hanger with Copper Plated Mounts
This is the first time that I can remember seeing a hanger like this that definitely would have been used with a SA Marine Dagger having copper plated mounts. The three piece hanger has all standard fittings and leather which is all in good supple condition. The retainer strap around the short hanger is missing however.
The buckle still has about 50% of the original copper plating and the snap clip has more like about 90% of the plating. It is a nickel clip which is marked on the back "A" and "DRGM". The "D" ring on the belt loop is also copper plated with most of the copper remaining on the edges of the ring and wear to the plating where the mounts hang from it.
I have seen original copper plated daggers in the past that must have been attributable to the SA Marine. If there is someone out there who has one of these what a tremendous addition this would make to that dagger. This has to be one of the rarest accoutrements I've seen.

Usually when we see these leather tabs they are brown, but these gray variants were much more color coordinated when matched with the uniform. The brocade is in perfect condition, trimmed with aluminum wires that run the length. These 10 straps have a plain backing as opposed to the more commonly seen velvet; apparently this was done as a cost cutting measure when the war broke out.

This set of Army Officer's Hangers is the type that was used on initial production daggers. They measure 10 ½ inches long. They show some wear, mostly in the areas that connect to the clip, but given that they were most likely in use for 7 or 8 years this is to be expected.
These early sets are of much higher quality than later examples, with solid brass hardware. The nickel plating has mostly worn away but remains visible. The top clip is the standard, plain type. The oval buckles and slides have outstanding oak leaf patterns but the silvering is mostly gone.

There is no question that these are original, period hangers. To me they look to be a set that could have possibly been made for some type of prototype dagger. I show an original prototype SS Dagger in my SS Book on page 649; the accompanying straps are very similar to these. There is also another Alcoso prototype shown on page 644 with similar straps.
A good set of hangers for the thinking man, or someone who love to research mystery items.

ACCOUHANGERS #40314C Unidentified Hangers
The brocade fronts are the typical Army type, with textured surfaces. The reverse, however, are late, black textured cloth as opposed to the normally seen velvet. Studying the sewing of the hardware and the wear to the material, these hangers were definitely worn during the period.
The upper clip is the standard box type, and the oval buckles and slides are decorated with raised oak leaves. The snaps are pebbled, "push-in" types with square tops where they go into the material.
Although I do not feel that there is such a thing as a "1st Model Railway Dagger" we do acknowledge black grip Klaas pieces as legitimate variations. These straps would certainly go nice with such a dagger. As to their actual purpose I do not know, although I am certain they are original.

The top clip has about 95% of the gilding intact. The oval ring and slide on the right side have nearly 100% of the gilding, as does the pebbled snap clip at the bottom.

ACCOUHANGERS #33579C RAD Bullet Hanger
This RAD Bullet Hanger is the long type that is complete with a belt loop. The belt loop is retained by a wire-like fitting which makes it permanent to the lower section. This bullet hanger is of all matching black leather on the obverse. The leather has quite a bit of attic crazing throughout its surfaces but it is still sound.
It is interesting to note that the exact copy of the RAD complicated scabbard designs is pressed into the lower part of the bullet style section. This pressed in design occurs when the heavy hewer is laying on this leather and there is a hundred degree heat in the attic. It makes for an interesting design here on this hanger. The snap clip is a heavy nickel type being unmarked on the reverse. The reverse of this hanger is black leather except for the lower bullet section which is a brown color.
It looks as though, at one time there, was a felt covering over this brown leather but only traces of it remain. Still a nice example here to put with your RAD Hewer.
ACCOUHANGERS #35862C Long RAD Bullet-Style Hanger with Belt Loop
This RAD Hanger is a very fine example being the two-piece type. The upper portion has a belt loop with nickel snap clip attached.

The bottom portion features the bullet style RAD leather backing which protects the wearer’s leg area from wear to the uniform.
There is a snap clip which rests as the upper portion of the bullet leather. This snap clip as well as the snap clip for the belt loop are Assmann marked and also have the date, “37”. The reverse of the hanger has a brown colored leather while the obverse leather is all black.

The snap clips are leather retained, which is further held by rivets. The reverse of the hanger is a fine tan color.

ACCOUHANGERS #37827 Kriegsmarine Hangers
This set of Kriegsmarine Hangers is the gilded aluminum type. The gilding is in excellent condition, being 100% intact on the short strap and showing just the most modest of wear on the lion mask on the longer strap.
The strap are the black lined moire type with black velvet backing. The velvet is in excellent condition on the short strap, while the longer has evidence of a minor repair. This repair was implemented between the two buckles of the lion mask. It is not that noticeable and doesn't detract from the set, and looks to be period as it does not glow when subjected to a UV light. The upper clip on the short strap is equipped with a hook and regain chain.
A good set of Kriegsmarine straps here, priced accordingly due to the repair.
ACCOUHANGERS #28489 SS/Police Degen Hanger
At the lower area there is a nickel-plated buckle. Attached to the the reverse of this buckle with an additional leather strap is a black painted “dog leash” style snap clip.
The hanger shows some mild use, but still has fine leather and pleasing black surfaces. This is an excellent hanger that would have been affixed to a snap clip on a belt and attached to the sword from the carrying ring on the scabbard.
I have not seen this configuration in the past, but it is certainly a fine, rarely seen accoutrement.
Excellent Plus, Plus. $295.00
