A beautiful example of an Early Model 1933 Schutzstaffel Dienstdolch by Rich Abr. Herder of Solingen. The blade on this one is gorgeous! The acid etched “Meine Ehre Heißt Treue” motto and “Rich Abr Herder Solingen” maker mark are both crisp and beautifully executed! The crossgrain is easily visible as you shine it in the light. The blade to crossguard fit is perfect, as is the tip. The blade rates an easy NM. No excuses here. The steel based black anodized scabbard is gorgeous as well! It remains completely dent free, holds a smooth and dark toned finish. No oxidization spotting, like most, and 90% of the original factory lacquer is still there! A beauty! The scalloped nickel-silver based scabbard fittings look excellent! The ball holds a nice round shape and all four scabbard screws remain intact. The scabbard to crossguard fit is near-perfect! The nickel-silver crossguards look excellent as well, matching the crossguards perfectly in color and patina. The reverse of the lower crossguard is stamp “I” (Munich). The black died hardwood grip is in excellent condition! No chips or cracks just wee normal small marks for honest use. The solid nickel-silver eagle is wonderfully detailed and has a perfect fit. The SS roundel retains 99%+ of its enamel and has a perfect fit! Included is it's original hanger which I will not remove. If your looking for one in NM condition than this is the one for you!
