Hitler Youth Knife by Richard Herder (#30198)

Maker: Richard Herder; Condition: Near MINT

$1,085.00

Exceptional condition Hitler Youth Knife by Richard Herder with a desirable double trademark (Herder TM and RZM 7/18) and dated “1939”. The HJ Knife model has far exceeded all other Third Reich model daggers in percentage of increased values. Old timers in the hobby will well remember when $50.00 was the maximum price one could hope to achieve from a Fahrtenmesser. Not so anymore! Nice condition ones are very difficult to find due to the young boys in the HJ constant use. This Herder knife is near MINT and would be extremely difficult to upgrade. Scabbard paint is perfect. Reverse leather is stamped “D.S.” with the accouterment manufacturer’s logo. Perfect HJ diamond inset with no chips in the enamel. Near MINT.
