Carl Heidelberg, Solingen TM. Solid nickel-silver hilt fittings with circular flat-sided pommel with brass inlaid swastikas as well as early crossguard with down swept wings with circular, flat-sided quillon block with brass inlaid swastikas.  Pommel and crossguard show minor surface wear with dark age patina.  Blue leather grip with twisted silver wire wrap shows only minor surface wear/age with no rips or tears and no loss of color to the leather. This model was issued both with and without grip wire, but this version with grip wire is much more attractive. Polished blade grades EX+ showing light surface wear/runner marks, but no nicks to cutting edges nor damage to the blade tip and is complete with blue leather buffer pad.  Blue leather scabbard matches the color of the grip perfectly and shows only minor surface wear with no rips, tears, nor creases to the leather.  Dent-free nickel-silver upper, center, and lower fittings with dark age patina matching the hilt fittings and are complete with all three silver wire retaining staples.  Solid nickel-silver chain hanger with 9 upper and 14 lower rings shows only light surface wear/age patina and is complete with early unmarked nickel-silver clip.  The hanger is attached to the scabbard rings by the early “S” pattern connectors. Nice, RARE uncleaned 17” DLV  Flyer’s Dagger recently obtained in Germany. EX++.
