SS Dagger [Early Version] - Gottlieb Hammesfahr Solingen-Foche

This early Model 1933 SS E.M. Dagger is in an uncleaned state and does not appear to have ever been apart. The nickel crossguards have developed an outstanding dull patination throughout. The tang nut is still crisp and does not appear to have had a wrench on it for many years. The crossguards have good smooth surfaces, crisp edges, and precise accent grooves. The lower reverse crossguard is district marked III. The grip is a fine example, being of medium-to-sharp ridge construction. This grip has no repairs. It shows a little bit of usage throughout, but nothing extreme and no gauges or chips. There is a tiny slither which has lifted on the wood surface at the lower right front area, but it is nothing. This fine grip has an excellent runes button which is perfectly placed at 12 o’clock. The enamel surfaces show a few taps from usage. The matching nickel grip eagle is the style with point-behind-the-head. This bird has all details available to the head, breast feathering, wing feathering, talons, wreath, and mobile swastika. A nice hilt here. The scabbard shell is nice and straight throughout. It has excellent anodized surfaces showing hardly any thinning and only the most modest of age in the surfaces. A nice shell here. The scabbard mounts are matching solid nickel and they are both in good condition to include the lower ball. The scabbard mounts are retained by original nickel screws, all look unbuggered. The hanger is an early type. The blade of this example is still nice and bright, and it retains nearly all of its original crossgraining with good needle tip. This blade has some in-and-out wear, but easily grades in near full mint condition. The blade is crisp etched and deep. The SS motto has nearly all of the original factory darkening in the backgrounds. A very fine blade here! The reverse ricasso is matching etched with double ovals. These ovals trap the firm’s name and location, Gottlieb Hammesfahr, Solingen–Foche. Inside is the pyramid with the plus sign on the front surface. The blade shoulders perfectly meet the lower crossguard contours. A very fine early SS dagger here, is in outstanding original condition.
