SA Dagger

This late produced original SA Dagger is a beauty. Produced by the Horster Company prior to 1942, it is possible that this dagger was unissued. The blade on this example is still bright and clean with in and out marks but with plenty of cross-graining. The maker mark is M7/36 by E & F Horster with RZM control logo. The blades inscription Alles fur Deutschland is deep and dark. The wood handle has no chips and fits very nicely onto the upper and lower crossguards and then into the scabbard. The SA button is straight and the national emblem is the zinc type used by Horster and also Carl Eickhorn after 1941 and is fitted into the handle like a glove. The ball on the end of the scabbard is uncrushed. The screws holding everything together are not 'buggered'. The crossguards are bright and shiny with just a beginning evidence of lifting on the top crossguard on the reverse side. The pommel nut shows only a minute 'buggering' Over all, this dagger is a 9.75 on a scale of 1 to 10 and completely original. The scabbard finish is 98% perfect.  They don't come much better than this.    $1149

First Model Luftwaffe Dagger
This is one of the nicest conditioned aluminum Luftwaffe examples I've ever encountered.
The pommel edges are still nice and crisp, and the surfaces show almost no wear or usage at all. The sun-wheel swastikas have very bright gilded surfaces and are easily 100%. The crossguard sun-wheels are in the same fine condition. The crossguard arms are nice and crisp, and turn downward in three segments. The ferrule on this piece is a silvered example, as it has a very dark black patina. The grip is a carved wood base, covered in blue-black Moroccan leather. The grip is in choice condition throughout, still retaining all of the leather grain, and is tightly wrapped with two small twisted brass wires.
The scabbard shell is straight throughout. It is covered in an outstanding Moroccan leather which exactly matched both the color and the grain of the grip. There are almost no signs of wear to this fine leather. The satin aluminum scabbard mounts are in the same condition as the hilt mounts; perfect throughout and showing only the most minimal wear. These mounts are retained by flat, headless side screws.
The aluminum chain consists of six upper ringlets and nine lower ringlets. They are attached to the standard aluminum type clip, which is marked with both “Ges. Gesch” and by the manufacturer logo, “OLC” in a diamond.
The blade is eye-catching, totally pristine example. It is in stone-mint condition, having full cross-grain and a bright, mirror finish. This mint blade is protected by a blue leather blade buffer, which shows just the slightest amount of wear about the edges.
If you are looking for a great aluminum 1st Model Luftwaffe dagger, look no further.    On a scale of 1-10, this dagger can be graded as 9.75.  You would be very happy with this one for your collection.                        $1500

Third Reich Stickpins
Pre-1935 SA (Sturmabteilung) Dagger by Melzer & Feller
Manfactured by Melzer and Feller, whose logo is the Running Horse. Based on the McSarr SA Rarity Rating, this dagger is rated as a '7'. Ratings are 1-10, with a 10 being the rarest. This is a Pre-1935 model as evidenced by the SA Group Marking 'Fr' on the reverse lower crossguard for the Franken Group. These Pre-1935 types were Initially made with the highest quality, being produced out of hand-fitted nickel fittings, hardwood grips and brown anodized scabbards. The blade on this piece is in excellent condition and there is still evidence of crossgraining. There are however, some small grind marks about 1-inch length by about 1/4-inch on the reverse side midway on the blade that I want to point out. Other than that, there are no nicks to the blade edges. What is really outstanding is the Maker Mark and etched motto "Alles für Deutschland", both dark, crisp and beautifully executed There are a few runner marks from the in-out of the scabbard, but not all that bad. The blade fits snugly into the scabbard. Whoever owned this dagger took great care of it.
The handle is a deep rosewood look and the eagle inset is one of the most perfect set into the handle. The SA roundel is in fine condition. To the right of the roundel is a small scratch that extends up onto the crossguard. I mention that for clarity and you can see it in one of the pictures.. The crossguards are an almost perfect fit to the handle with just the slightest bit of light to be seen when holding it upright.
The scabbard is the anodized type with hardly any marks on it save for a little what appears to be a rust spot, but is not very noticeable. The ball tip scabbard fitting is undented nor is it split. The screws holding the fittings in place appear to be unbuggered.
The few pictures are posted, but if you would like to see more, you can contact me with your request with any questions you may have.
I rate this dagger as a 9 out of a 10. Not cheap, but priced on it's condition as well as being an early piece. You will not be unhappy with this dagger. (Lot D-006).  $1325
