An Early Model 1933 SA Dagger (Sturmabteilung Dienstdolch) by MOBIL, Franz Steinhoff of Solingen-Wald. The blade on this one is in good condition! The acid etched "Alles für Deutschland" motto and "Franz Steinhoff Solingen-Wald" maker mark are both dark, crisp and beautifully executed! The crossgrain is easily visible all the way from the hilt to the tip. The fit remains nice and tight and the tip comes to a perfect point! This blade rates an Exc+/Exc++. There is some age spotting and the common surface scratches throughout. The dent-free scabbard is steel based and what looks to be period repainted. The paint is old and crazed. The solid nickel-silver scabbard fittings look great! The ball remains round with a wee hit and all four scabbard screws remain tightly intact. The scabbard / crossguard fit is perfect and closes with a snap! The reverse of the lower crossguard is marked "Ns". The red/brown hardwood grip is looks great! It shows the common pressure mark throughout but no chips or cracks. The solid nickel eagle retains beautiful details and has a perfect fit. The SA roundel has a perfect fit and retains 99%+ of its enamel. Included is a well worn original 2 piece hanger. A fine looking example!
