Here's a beauty example of a Red Cross Dagger! The bright blade on this one is nice. The crossgrain is easily visible and the teeth on the saw back are in great condition. To the reverse of the blade is nicely marked "GES. GESCHUTZT", not necessary but some like to see this. It has a nice solid fit to it as well. The blade rates a Exc+/Exc++. It only has a few scuffs and the odd stain. The leather washer is tightly in place. The black enamel painted scabbard retains 98% paint coverage and suffers so wee hits that you can find by turning the scabbard just so in the sun or using your fingers. The plated nickel scabbard fittings match the hilt in color and age. All four screws remain intact. Look at the lacquer remaining to the hilt! There is some wear to the reverse of the pommel from normal period use. The medallion has fine vaulting to the swastika on the bird's chest and the cross in its talons. The reverse grip plate suffers a hairline running north from the upper screw hole. They both fit quite nicely. This one comes with a black leather frog marked "Carl Busse Mainz 1940" and a free post war portepee! Overall a superior piece that will make for an excellent display!
