A rare, (9/10 on McSarr) early model 1933 Sturmabteilung Dienstdolch by Gustav Wirth of Solingen-Grafrath. The blade on this one looks good. The acid etched "Alles für Deutschland" motto and "Gustav Wirth Solingen Grafrath" maker mark are both nicely executed! It's been cleaned and good crossgrain remains. The fit remains nice and tight and the tip comes to a perfect point! This blade rates Exc++. It has minor age. The steel based, brown anodized scabbard looks good. It shows minor oxidization throughout and it remains completely dent free. The solid nickel silver scabbard fittings and crossguards look great! The ball has had a hit but not terrible. The screws remain tightly intact. The scabbard / crossguard fit is near perfect. The reverse of the lower crossguard is marked "Nm" (Nordmark). The brown hardwood grip looks good. It shows the common pressure marks from normal period wear. There is a chip that has been glued back in to the upper left obverse corner. Who, when? I have no idea but a good job was done. The solid nickel eagle retains beautiful details and has a near perfect fit. The SA roundel has a perfect fit and retains 99%+ of its enamel. Included is a short hanger with a nickel snap and period replaced strap. A fine example!
