Cased Army Officer dagger with white grip is complete with a portepee. Rare maker H. Kolpig, Solingen (established 1863). Graded a “10” (if they exist) on the McSarr’s rarity scale. This is a wonderful one-of-a-kind grouping which includes all Third Reich medals and decorations presented to the owner of the Army dagger. Original period custom made case is superbly recessed to accommodate not only the dagger and portepee, but all of the owner’s medals and decorations as well. This ultra-rare grouping also includes three original photographs of the owner in his Third Reich uniform. Fantastic research project to identify the owner as we know from the photos his service, rank, and fortunately, his initials “G. F.” appear on the outside lid of the recessed case. His home most likely was a town on or near the famous German “Wine Strasse”. Entire grouping will grade Near MINT.
