A Lifetime Collection Of Approximately 100 Knapped Flints In An Oak Glazed Table Top Display Case. Sn 13654 - 13654
This is a lifetime collection of approximately 100 knapped flints in an oak glazed table top display case. The case measures 24" x 14" x 5" and the sides are dovetailed. This collection is very well presented in a very nicely made oak glazed table top display case. Flint has been used for the raw material for tools longer than any other material and it does not decay. It is very hard but is easily flaked and produces razor sharp flakes, unfortunately it is slightly porous so that it can be flaked by thermal action (the action of frost and heat), but luckily for archaeologists when it has been struck by man there are distinctive features that help with identification. Flint was formed in the chalk deposits in S England, 70 to 100 million years ago water percolated through the chalk and dissolved the silicon molecules within the chalk. Over the years the silica built up to form layers or nodules of flint. The silica frequently grew around a fossil and this produced the curious shaped nodules. The case bottom is lined with white cotton and the various types of flints are laid out for display. The flints all vary in size and types including points, knives, skin scrapers and axe heads. They are from various countries, mainly European and some North American Indian. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 13654

WW1 French 'Lafayette Escadrille' Air Force Large feathered Flechette, Number Stamped '284'. Sn 13696 - 13696
This is a WW1 French Air Force 'Lafayette Escadrille' large feathered Flechette. This is the rarer type of flechette as most are all steel. A flechette is a pointed steel projectile, with a vaned tail for stable flight. The name comes from French fléchette, "little arrow" or "dart", and sometimes retains the acute accent in English: fléchette. They were dropped onto cavalry Troops, into the trenches and anywhere they could cause damage. This large flechette was designed probably to penetrate observation balloons and Zeppelins before the incendiary rounds were brought into use in aircraft. They were very effective. This flechette has a feathered tail and hexagonal steel dart. The steel dart is stamped with "284" and the '8' has been over stamped over an original '3'. The dart is very sharp with a pencil point. They were very effective if dropped in numbers. They are rare to find in this condition as any flechette's dropped buried themselves into the ground if they didn't find a target. This flechette weighs 450grams. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 13696

Cast Duralumin Photograph Frame and Photograph Of Kapitan Max Pruss Made From Remains Of The Airframe Of The German Hindenburg D-LZ 129 Zepplin Which Crashed In New Jersey USA 6th May 1937. Sn 13708 - 13708
Max Pruss was the captain of the Hindenburg when it crashed at Lakehurst, New Jersey on 6th May 1937. Captain Pruss received his airship training in the German Navy during WW1 and served as an elevator man on the German Navy Zeppelins L6 (LZ-31), L11 (LZ-41), L25 (LZ-58), L30 (LZ-62), and L54 (LZ-99). Pruss then worked with Eckener and fellow zeppelin officers Hans von Schiller, Hans Flemming, and Anton Wittemann giving lectures around Germany to raise money for the Zeppelin-Eckener-Spende and the construction of LZ-127 Graf Zeppelin. Pruss served aboard Graf Zeppelin during many important flights, including the ship’s historic 1929 Round-the-World flight, and was given command of Graf Zeppelin in 1934. He served as a watch officer aboard Hindenburg during many flights of the 1936 season along with fellow watch officers Albert Sammt, Heinrich Bauer, and Knut Eckener under the command of both Hugo Eckener and Ernst Lehmann. Pruss himself eventually received command of Hindenburg, and he was the ship’s captain on the transatlantic flight from Lakehurst to Frankfurt on 30th September – 3rd October 1936, and during Hindenburg’s last three South American crossings of the 1936 season. Max Pruss was in command of Hindenburg when it was destroyed by fire at Lakehurst, New Jersey on 6th May 1937. He survived the crash, but suffered very serious burns on much of his body, including his face whilst repeatedly trying to save passengers from the burning remains, and remained in a New York hospital for many months. To the end of his life, Pruss believed the Hindenburg disaster was the result of sabotage. This is a very rare piece, it is made from recycled Duralumin from the airframe remains of the burnt out Hindenburg D-LZ 129. It is cast in one piece and has a very nice hinged back and stand as can be seen from the photographs. It measures 10 1/2" x 8 1/2". On the front it has two brass plates which are nicely stamped, the top one has "Kapitan Max Pruss" and the bottom one has "Hindenburg D-LZ 129 6. Mai 1937 Aufgearbeiteten (Recycled) Duralumin". The back plate is held with a rotating cam and the back of the photograph has a Blue ink stamp "From Acme Newspictures Inc Cleveland Bureau 1200 West Third St. Please Credit Ame Phot This picture is sold to you for your publication only and must not be loaned syndicated for advertising purposes without written permission from us" and a further one "Ref Dept. N.E.A." along with a signature "Capt. Max Pruss" in pencil and "A11424" in pencil. The photograph is black and white and is of Max Pruss in uniform. This is a very nice piece and very collectable for anyone with and interest in the Hindenburg disaster and Zeppelins. The price includes UK shipping. Sn 13708
