An early model 1933 SA dagger (Sturmabteilung Dienstdolch) by Carl Julius Krebs of Solingen. The blade on this has age and spotting along with light grey. The acid etched “Alles für Deutschland” motto and maker mark are both dark, crisp and nicely executed! Some crossgrain remains visible as you rotate it in the light. The tip comes to a perfect point and the fit remains nice and tight! This blade rates Exc. It continues to measures the full 220mm long. The scabbard is steel based and brown repainted. It remains completely dent free and holds a 99% paint. The solid nickel-silver scabbard fittings are in good shape, the lower one has a replaced screw and is polished up a bit. The ball is pushed in. All four scabbard screws remain tightly intact. The scabbard / crossguard fit is near perfect and closes with a snap! The reverse of the lower crossguard is marked “He” (Hessen). The red hardwood grip looks great. It several pressure marks throughout but it remains chip and crack-free. The solid nickel eagle is beautifully detailed and has a good fit. The SA roundel has a perfect fit and retains 99%+ of its enamel. A solid example!
