Here we have a Very Rare Model 1933 SA Dagger (Sturmabteilung Dienstdolch) by Eugen Haering of Solingen. This one rates 9 out of 10 on McSaars SA rarity rating. The blade on this one is a looks excellent! The crisp acid etched “Alles fur Deutschland” motto and “Eugen Haering Solingen” manufacturer’s mark are both beautifully executed! The fit is nice and tight and the tip comes to a perfect point. The crossgrain is wonderful easily visible through the full length of the blade. The blade rates an Exc++/NM. It appears as though the cutting edge has been re-sharpened, it could have been in the factory and is hardly noticeable but I saw it so I tell you. It measures 220mm as it should. It shows the common surface scratches/runner marks throughout. The steel based brown anodized scabbard looks excellent! It shows minor oxidization spots to the reverse yet remains dent free and retain 65% of its original factory lacquered finish. The solid nickel silver scabbard fittings look great! The ball has a wee bruise to the very bottom and continues to remain round. All four screws remain intact! The scabbard / crossguard fit is perfect and closes with a snap! The crossguards match the scabbard fittings in wear, color and patina. The reverse of the lower crossguard is Gau stamped “Wf” (Westfalen). The grip / crossguard fits are perfect! The brown hardwood grip looks excellent. There are a few pressure marks but no flakes, cracks or chips. The solid nickel eagle is beautifully detailed and has a perfect fit. The SA roundel also has a perfect fit and retains 99%+ of its enamel. A gorgeous piece that will fit in well with your collection!
