This is a beautiful specimen of a SS NCO degen. The SS – Unterfuhrer degen was thought to have been issued at the same time as the officer degen in 1936. As good quality SS Officer degens have almost disappeared from the collecting market, the SS NCO degen makes an affordable alternative for any SS collector. This specimen represents the finest condition and quality and easily measures up to the standards of an SS Officer Degen. An excellent opportunity to own a very rare SS item.
