2nd Model Luftwaffe Dagger w/Dark Orange Grip.
Alcoso, ACS scales TM. This example, measuring 10"
in length, features silver-plated hilt fittings
showing light surface wear/dark age-patina to the
well-detailed oak leaf pommel with swastika, and
crossguard with Luftwaffe eagle. The lower edges
of the swastika have been professionally ground,
(possibly because of damage or in an attempt to
lessen the impact of the swastika). The grinding
has not destroyed the overall shape of the swastika.
The dark, burnt-orange, nicely age-toned celluloid
grip is perfect with no cracks or chips and is complete
with tight twisted wire wrap. Plated blade grades
EX, showing light surface wear with minor speckling
to plating and one spot of lifting near obverse
tip, but no nicks to cutting edges. Blade is complete
with original dark blue felt buffer pad. Dent-free
silver-plated scabbard shows light surface wear
with dark, age-patina matching the hilt fittings,
and with excellent detail to the pebbling, lower
oak leaf motif, as well as the double scabbard suspension
bands complete with rings. The scabbard is without
throat. Nice, original example obtained in Germany.
EX (25828) $795.
