Here we have an untouched Model 1933 SA Dagger (Sturmabteilung Dienstdolch) by Otto Stover Solingen. The blade on this one is a looks excellent! The dark and crisp, acid etched “Alles fur Deutschland” motto and 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 a NM. It shows the common age spotting and surface scratches/runner marks. The brown anodized scabbard looks great. It has some age oxidization spots while retaining dent-free with 90%+ of factory lacquer. The solid nickel 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 near 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 “Nrh”. The grip / crossguard fits are perfect! The brown hardwood grip looks excellent. There are a few pressure marks but no flakes, cracks or chips. Now I just held this up to the sun and there appears to be a personalization to the lower wood “triangle” but I can not make it out as it sort of looks scratched out. 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!
