Lot 359: German S.A. 1933 Pattern Dress Dagger by Carl Eickhorn (222 views)

German S.A. 1933 Pattern Dress Dagger by Carl Eickhorn
Estimated Price: $500 - $700
Description: This is a very fine example of the 1933 pattern Sturmabteilung dress dagger. The straight, double-edged blade measures 8 11/16" while the dagger measures 13 3/4" overall length from tip of the blade to capstan nut. The blade rates excellent and retains much original polish with only some very light scabbard marks and a few very sparsely scattered, very light oxidation or water stains. This is a transitional blade, the "Alles fŸr Deutschland" motto is crisp on the obverse and the reverse is marked with "RZM /M 7/66 /1938" above the Carl Eickhorn seated squirrel maker's mark on the forte. The nickel crossguard and pommel are excellent with a few minor handling scratches from the years, the pommel showing some very light oxidation freckling along its face. The hardwood grip is in excellent shape with some small scattered light handling marks and the party eagle and enamel SA emblem rate excellent as well. The brown enameled scabbard has only a small handful of very minor handling marks along the body with the throat and tip chape rating excellent also with some very minor handling marks and light wear at the ball. The leather hanger and its attendant parts rate excellent with only some very light flaking present, the clip is "RZM M5c/93" marked. This is a very fine-excellent SA dagger with crisp markings that would make a fabulous addition to a Second World War blade collection. (35587-12)
