Here we have the Cadillac of all SS Daggers: a beautiful Early Model 1933 SS Dagger (Schutzstaffel Dienstdolch) by Böker of Solingen with a vertical hanger. The blade on this one is a real treat! The acid etched “Meine Ehre Heißt Treue” motto and “Böker Solingen” maker mark are both dark, crisp and beautifully executed! They provide a wonderful contrast to the bright blade. The fit and tip are both perfect. The crossgrain runs the full length of the blade shining wonderfully against the light! The blade rates NM. It shows surface scratches/runner marks and minor age grey/spotting throughout. The scabbard on this one is one of the best I’ve seen! The body is steel based, black anodized and it retains approximately 90%+ of its original factory lacquer! It has only the slightest oxidization spotting throughout. It remains completely dent free! A real treat! The nickel silver base scalloped scabbard fittings look excellent! The ball has one small bruise yet retains its round shape. All four scabbard screws remain intact. The scabbard fit is near perfect and closes with a snap. The nickel silver based crossguards look excellent as well matching the scabbard fittings in color and patina. The reverse of the lower fitting is district stamped “I” (Munich). The black died hardwood grip is in great condition! Way better than most we come across! It shows the common pressure marks throughout yet it remains chip and crack free! It exhibits those wonderful fits that reflect the time and effort Böker invested in these pieces. The nickel silver based eagle is crisp, wonderfully detailed and has a perfect fit. The SS roundel retains 85%+ of its enamel and also has a perfect fit! This one comes with a wonderful black leather vertical hanger. It is maker marked “SS 48/34 RZM” (1934) to the interior and the clip is also marked “A DRGM” (F. W. Assmann & Söhne, Lüdenscheid) and continues to work well! A high quality piece that will be very difficult to upgrade and you are sure to be happy with!
