A little known fact but the famous pistol maker Sauer was a true quality maker of SA daggers too! The bright blade on this one has a nice dark etch. The crisp acid etched "Alles fur Deutschland" motto and "J.P. Sauer & Sohn Suhl Gegr. 1751" still are easily readable. The fit remains nice and tight and the tip comes to a perfect point! The blade rates an easy Exc+/Exc++. It shows some minor age spots and runner marks. The brown anodized scabbard body looks great. It has some oxidization spotting throughout and a hit that has oxidized the the lower obverse. The solid nickel scabbard fittings look good matching the crossguards in color and wear. The ball is perfect. All four screws remain intact. The reverse of the lower crossguard is marked "Mi" The scabbard / crossguard fit is perfect! The brown hardwood grip looks excellent! Just the common pressure marks but no cracks, chips or splits! The grip / crossguard fits are near perfect! The solid nickel eagle retains beautiful detail and has a good fit. The SA roundel has a perfect fit and retains 99% of its enamel. An excellent SA never been apart purchased from the Vet's family this am.
