ACCOUHANGERS #47711C Army Railway Water Protection Hangers
These army railway water protection hangers have been a headscratchers for collectors for many years. Many collectors have thought that they would have been worn with the police water protection dagger but we know that this is not the case as period photographs clearly show that the police water protection daggers were worn with naval hangers. It has only been recent that we have put two and two together and realized that these hangers were produced for the elusive army railway water protection dagger. These daggers were originally produced in 1941 designed after a Paul Casberg drawing. Eickhorn was the sole producer and it is doubtful that more than a half a dozen of these daggers were made. I was fortunate enough to find one of these daggers all in parts a number of years ago and to date it is the only one that I have ever seen. The hangers on the other hand have been circulating for many years and we believe that these hangers were produced in perhaps a quantity of three or four dozen in anticipation of the army railway dagger being distributed. Because of the war effort there was never any real production of the dagger and therefore the hangers were never used. When we see these hangers they are always in mint condition and never show any wear. Obviously a quantity of them was discovered after the war and passed down through the collectors circles.The straps feature a beautiful gold textured brocade with a navy blue twin line that runs through the edges of both straps. The reverse of the hangers are a dark navy blue velvet. The top clip is a closed variety being gilded. The oval buckles and snaps have the raised out oak leaves the same as many other hanger hardware. The snaps are the pebbled type being “push in”. They have the square type ends on them where they connect to the brocade straps. This is an opportunity to acquire a very rare set of straps which if you are a hanger collector these could certainly highlight your showcase of straps. And, the chance might come around that some day you might come across an army railway water protection leader dagger to go with the straps. If not you still have a beautiful very rare set of hangers to show off with your collection.
ACCOUHANGERS #47510C Early Gilt Brass Naval Hangers
These naval straps are in very fine condition throughout. They are equipped with the black moire obverses and fine black velvet reverse. The mounts are all brass throughout with the two lion mask buckles having nearly 100 percent of their origins gilt finish. The buickles are not marked on the reverse. The snap clips are also brass type with good gild to the snap that retains the chain and regaining hook. The chain and regaining hook are of steel and perhaps where gilded brass at one time as their are faint signs of it. The other snaps are also all brass not showing much gild but that is the nature of these accouterments. This is an extremely fine set of hangers that would work well on a dagger from the 1920’s up to about 1938 or so. After 1938 the standard Kriegsmarine hangers were normally gilded aluminum. So this is a perfect set for a really nice early naval dirk.

ACCOUHANGERS #47189 Unusual Army Officer Hangers
This set of army officer hangers is quite long measuring almost 12 inches. They are also a bit unusual in that instead of the plain closed box clip at the top there is a Luftwaffe deluxe style clip.
The Luftwaffe clip is the style that is marked UE10 and DRGM and it also has the raised oak leaves on the clip and snap clip.
Looking at the hangers it appears as though this clip was replaced at some time during the life of the hangers, although I cannot say for sure when.
The hardware consists of the oval buckles and slides with raised oak leaves. This hardware shows some usage but still has most of the original finish. The lower snaps are the pebbled style and they are push in type.
The reverse of the hangers shows some modest wear but the green felt is still in good condition.

ACCOUHANGERS #46781C TeNo Leader Brocade Hangers

ACCOUHANGERS #46231 RAD Bullet Hanger with Applied Swastika
This bullet hanger is most curious as it has an applied swastika which appears original to the time.
The bullet hanger has a good loop area with wire attachment above for connecting to a belt loop. The leather throughout is in good condition and at the lower portion there is a snap clip which is not marked on the reverse.
The bullet hanger is also stamped with some markings that appears to be "BRW772" which I guess relates to a RAD group and on the reverse of it it is also maker marked which appears to be Otto Binde Berlin 1937.
Applied to the left side of the bullet hanger is a nickel plated swastika. It is held on to the piece via a copper brad. Obviously something like this would not have been per regulations but as we all know with large groups of people there was always someone who broke the rules. Anyhow it makes for an interesting looking RAD hanger.
Excellent Plus. $595.00
ACCOUHANGERS #46437 Early RAD Hanger with Wearer Applied Belt Loop
It is quite rare to find the early RAD hanger as because of their design they did not last too long. The weight of the hewer U fitting pulling against the leather of this hanger quickly wore through at the bottom areas so most of these early hangers were abandoned for the later bullet style which has the snap clip.
This hanger is in very nice condition being of all black leather. It shows only the most modest of wear and the lower loop area. It is held closed by a separate black strap having buckle and hasp. Apparently the original wearer wanted his hewer to hang a little lower so he applied a custom made black leather belt loop to the end in order to accomplish this purpose. An interesting addition period here the likes of which I have not seen in the past.
A fine example here to apply to an early hewer.
Excellent Plus Plus. $495.00
ACCOUHANGERS #46300 Early RAD Short Hanger with Period Added Bullet Style Ending
This RAD hanger is most curious and ingenious.
It is the early style hanger being of all leather with a folded up end which is secured by a strap and buckle. As we know these hangers tended to wear out because of the weight of the hewer so in the case of this example the original wearer had a bullet shaped bottom added to his short hanger to help with this problem as well as protect his uniform from the swing of the hewer.
A very interesting period combination here that would look quite well on an early RAD hewer. This is the first time I have seen this ingenious creation.
Excellent Plus. $475.00
ACCOUHANGERS #45754C Army General’s Hangers with Missing Snap
This set of army General’s hangers is in nice condition throughout and are 100 percent original.
The upper box clip is the deluxe type with raised oak leaves and DRGM stamping. Almost 100 percent of the gild remains.
The buckles and slides are also finely gilded featuring the raised oak leaf designs. There is little wear to this gilt finish. The left lower snap is the deluxe push up type having oak leaf decoration on the obverse and marked “DRGM” on the reverse. Most of the gilding also remains on this snap. Unfortunately on the right side the lower snap is gone to time. It is possible that someone out there had a gilded deluxe snap that would work for these hangers. If this were the case the hangers are only priced at about half their value so this replacement snap could be of great enhancement as well as value to this set of hangers.
The straps are also in excellent condition with very fine brocade and the reverse velvet shows only the most nominal of wear.
A great opportunity here for the right person.
ACCOUHANGERS #45892C Social Welfare Hangers
This set of social welfare hangers shows some usage and maybe a little soiling to the front brocade but it is not bad.
The brocade straps have the textured inside with twin gray lines which run the length. The reverse of the straps is covered in gray velvet which also shows just minor usage.
The snap clip at the top is a pebbled aluminum example. Matching the clip are the rectangular buckle and slides which also feature a pebbled finish. The snap clips are the push in type and also have the pebbling.
A good decent set of hangers here which could also serve on a Red Cross piece as well as a social welfare piece as we feel that both daggers were worn simultaneously with the two types of hangers.
ACCOUHANGERS #45894C Bulgarian Air Force Hangers
These hangers are very elusive and quite beautiful. They belong to the small delicate gilded daggers worn by the Bulgarian air force before and during the war.This set is quite long being 12 inches and is obviously German made. The brocade on the obverse is the same as that seen on German army officer hangers. The reverse is also the same being a green velvet. The brocade and velvet are still in nice condition throughout.
The snap clip at the top is most unusual as it is a closed clip except that the center section of the closed clip there is an additional snap clip mechanism which is spring loaded. The buckles and slides are the army type with raised oak leaves however they are heavily gilded. The snaps clips are the push in variety being pebbled having matching gilt.
If you have one of these Bulgarian air force daggers I would think that to own this hanger also would be quite a feat.
ACCOUHANGERS #45893C Croatian Army Officer 1st Style Hangers
These hangers are quite unusual and are obviously German made. At first glance the brocade almost have the look of a diplomatic type but with closer scrutiny the pattern is different having a series of chain link style figures that connect and run the length. The reverse of the straps has a green velvet. The straps show a little bit of soiling and some wear but no abuse to the reverse.
The top clip is similar to what we see on a 2nd model Luftwaffe hanger having all raised oak leaf designs and it is marked on the reverse DRGM as well as RZM UE10. The oval buckles and slides are the traditional German army type with raised oak leaves and the snaps are the deluxe push up type with oak leaves on the front and DRGM marked on the reverse.
A pretty rare set of hangers here and quite good looking.
Excellent Plus. $695.00
ACCOUHANGERS #45903 Army Leather Sword Teardrop Hanger
This teardrop hanger is of brown leather and is in overall good condition being 8 and half inches long.
The top closed clip would be for hooking the hanger to a snap clip sewn into the owner's tunic and the lower clip is a large dog leash style having good nickel plating which would fit on to the U bracket on the back of a sword's scabbard.
Overall a good example here that can complete your army officer sword.
ACCOUHANGERS #44883C RAD Bullet Hanger
This bullet hanger is a little different than we normally see them. It has a long loop which is part of the bullet section below and at the same time encompasses the snap clip with a separate strap sewn in. It makes for quite a good looking rigging here all in black leather being in very very fine condition.
The snap clip is the usual nickel type having toned nicely. It is marked on the back “A” and the letters “A” and “S” beneath and also it has the RAD triangle with 37 below this. This is probably the year it was produced.
On the reverse half of the hagner is the leather backing and the lower bullet portion is backed with a black felt. The felt shows some wear and age but still remains at about 80 percent.
A very nice bullet hanger here just waiting for the right hewer to mare up with it.
ACCOUHANGERS #45184C Red Cross Officer Hangers
This set of Red Cross officer hangers is in fine shape and are nice and long measuring 12 inches in length.
The brocade is in nice condition being a gray color with twin silver stripes being piped with red edges. The reverse of the straps has fine gray velvet cloth showing little to no wear. The top clip is a plain style aluminum snap version. The buckles are of oval aluminum with matching aluminum slides. The snaps are a smooth push in type.
A very fine set of straps here that would go nicely with a near mint to mint Red Cross officer piece.
Near Mint. $995.00
ACCOUHANGERS #44803C High Ranking Diplo / Government Official Gild Hangers
This set of hangers is rarely offered and a pleasure to see. They would have been issued to a high ranking government official or diplomatic corps official.
The brocade has the traditional herringbone design with a gold look to the thread. The brocade shows only mild age but not wear and no problems whatsoever. The reverse of the straps are covered in a black velvet. There is some surface wear to the velvet itself but no wear through.
The top clip is an aluminum example with a push in snap. The clip was once all gild finish but most of the gild surface has worn off over the years but it is still able to be seen in the inner areas as well as on portions of the enclosed bottom section of the clip. The rectangular buckles and slides still reflect almost all of the gilt finish on the obverse and also on the reverse areas. These buckles and slides appear to have perhaps have had a brass base. The eyelets and buckle ends also appear to be brass and the eyelets are gilt. The snap clips below are a push in variety and they have rounded tops. They also have a pebbled finish. Most of the gild is worn off the outside areas of these snaps but the inside recesses as well as other parts still have much of the original gilt remaining. It is interesting to note that the longer clip on the right hanger is installed with the snap on the reverse. For some reason this must have been the choice of the original wearer as there is no question that the hangers reflect wear in this method.
If you have a Diplo or GO that you feel belong to a higher up these hangers would be outstanding to put with the dagger. These are rarely offered and rarely seen. A great set of absolute original straps here.
ACCOUHANGERS #44094C RAD "Bullet" Hanger
This RAD "Bullet" Hanger is a fine example, being complete with the separate belt loop at the top.
The leather throughout the hanger has some minor attic crazing on the finish but it is still sound and serviceable.
The snap clip hooked to the black belt loop is marked with "A" on the reverse, indicating the Assmann firm, as well as "A&S", the production year "37", and an RAD triangle.
The nickel clip below is also marked in the same fashion.
A very nice RAD "Bullet" example here.

The "push-up" snap clips also have this gold tint, as well as raised oak leaves on the surfaces. Both of the snaps are marked "DRGM".

The upper clip is plain and unmarked, with remnants of gilding around the lower areas. The buckles and slides have some gilding left in the recesses. The snaps also have some gilding but for the most part it is gone.
The brocade is still excellent, as are the aluminum stripes. The reverse high-pile velvet has a bit of wear but it nothing bad.
An outstanding opportunity to acquire a set of genuine Luftwaffe General’s Hangers.

ACCOUHANGERS #39608C Early Army General’s Hangers
This set of General’s Hangers are the real deal and there is no question about it. They are in very nice condition overall and measure 11 inches long. Apparently the original owner was an early Army General because these hangers are the style with brass hardware; this type of hardware was only used for a short time after the Army Dagger was introduced.
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. The left strap has a little bit of oxidation on the buckle and slide but easily retains at least 70% of the gilding. The left “push-in” snap retains nearly all of the gilding.
The brocade is in excellent condition. These are best early version General’s Hangers I've ever had on offer.

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.
