Dear Forum Members,

The lively discussions regarding a proofed German Imperial Navy variation #1 cleaning rod was a catalyst for this thread. I would like to present a photo compilation of the C/M proofed Navy accessories that I currently own. Some of these I have posted before, some I have not, some I still have to look for to photo.

The C/M proofs vary from each accessory. Posted are proofs from the following accessories.

-Two Navy board stocks
-1911 Boarding Cutlass
-Brass shell casing from a naval gun (cannon)
-Brass telescope carrying tube cover
-Navy mag proof
-Two proofed Navy cleaning rods

I ask fellow members if they own proofed Navy accoutrement to add photos of the C/M to this thread.

IMHO the Imperial German Navy had different/variations of C/M stamps for their accessories. Some crowns float, some don't, some are small, and some are not.

Best regards,

Joe Pirolo

Nice display of some great Imperial Navy items. Imperial Navy proofs are certainly an in depth study.

Thanks again Joe for the thoughtful and long overdue comparison of C/M markings on various Imperial Navy items. It confirms what some of us suspected: that some individual items had their own C/M variation. Most importantly, it demonstrates there is no one single C/M style that is proper for all items at all times. Well done!- and more homework for us. This should be made a 'sticky' for posterity.

German Imperial Navy Inspector's Wax Seal with C/M

I believe this is a wax seal. The details do not show when used as an ink stamp. As you can see from the photo the crown/anchor are very detailed.

German Imperial Navy Sword w/ Crown/Anchor

Dear Members:

One last Imperial Navy accessory with German Navy crown/anchor. It is an Officer's dress sword. This one had been personalized.

Again, if anyone has any C/M variations or crown/anchor variations they would like to add, please do.

Best regards and good collecting!

Joe

Although the crown on this seal resembles German imperial regalia, the seal says "UBATSVAPNEN INSPEKTOREN" which, if I'm not mistaken is Swedish.

Ub
åt, like Uboot, is a short form of untervattensbåt or submarine.

'Course this could be Norwegian too, I don't know.

That's a really nice relic you got there. How did you find that?

Hi Thierry, Thanks for showing your beautiful U-Boat ammo box, it's the ultimate Luger accessory. They are very rare, I believe there is only one here in the US.
Best regards, Norm

Randy,

Thank you for the clarification on the seal. It was given to me several years ago from a good friend.

Happy New Year and good collecting to you!

The bronze ammunition box is certainly a wonderfully rare relic of the Imperial U-boat service. I noticed the C/M stamp was identical to the Simpson Ltd. box Norm posted on 12-14-'11. The box dimensions are 9 1/4"x 6 1/2"x 3 5/8"H. - too small & w/central lid to accommodate a 10 5/8"L. 1917 P.04! (Sorry Julia) Again, thanks Joe for starting this highly informative thread.
