Here we have an Early Model 1933 SA Dagger (Sturmabteilung Dienstdolch) by Paul Seilheimer of Solingen. The blade on this one is in excellent shape! The acid etched “Alles für Deutschland” motto and “PS Paul Seilheimer Solingen” maker mark are both dark, crisp and beautifully executed! The crossgrain shines wonderfully in the light and is visible all the way from the hilt to tip. The tip comes to a perfect point and the fit remains nice and tight! This blade rates a solid Exc++/NM. It shows age grey towards the tip end along with the common runner marks/surface scratches throughout. The scabbard is steel based and brown anodized. It remains completely dent free and holds a wonderful finish! There is a rectangular sticker mark to the reverse. The solid nickel-silver scabbard fittings are in excellent shape, matching the crossguards in color and patina. The ball has a few bruises yet retains a round shape. All four scabbard screws remain tightly intact. The scabbard / crossguard fit is near perfect and closes with a snap! The reverse of the lower crossguard is marked “Ns” (Niedersachsen). The brown hardwood grip looks great. It has one flake to the lower obverse and the common pressure marks throughout. No cracks or chips! The solid nickel eagle is beautifully detailed and has a perfect fit. The SA roundel has a perfect fit and retains 97%+ of its enamel. A solid example you will be happy with!
