Land Customs Official's Dagger [1937] by Rich. Abr. Herder Solingen

This Land Customs Official's Dagger shows some age abd it is in EXC++ condition. Model 1937. The total length is 40.5 cm. The Dagger has the maker mark on the blade: Rich. Abr. Herder Solingen.

Grip: The dagger has hilt mounts produced of molded aluminum. The pommel has a good smooth upper top portion and the rim has only a couple of minor hits around it. These oak leaves show quite a bit of hand enhancing throughout their structure. The ferrule is the same basic design having the pointed oak leaves which overlap each other running around the circumference. The crossguard is completely smooth on the reverse and on the obverse features the land customs eagle having outstretched wings which are tipped on the ends. This bird has nice detail to his eye, beak, breast feathering, talons, wing feathers, wreath and new swastika. The grip is a carved wood base having a leather covered surface. The green leather has toned color to a slight brownish green look. This leather is kept tight with original dual twisted brass grip wire.

Blade: This blade shows only the most subtle signs of age. The reverse ricasso is matching etched with the well known Herder Diamond trademark. There is a leather washer in place.

Scabbard: The scabbard shell is straight throughout. This shell of course is a steel base and it is covered with land customs green leather. The leather at the upper portion between the upper and center mount is still in excellent condition. The scabbard mounts are the steel type having a nickel-like coating. The coating is still nearly intact having only a little slight wear along the reverse center portion. These mounts have eyelets which are soldered into place with the usual carrying rings. These mounts have decorative lines which are engraved along the borders on the obverse only. The mounts are retained by a flush mount headless screw on the left side of each.
