A Rare Early Model 1933 Sturmabteilung Dienstdolch by Ernst-Grah of Solingen-Wald. This one rates 9 out of 10 for rarity on McSaar's SA rarity ratting! The blade on this one looks better in the photos that in hand. It has surface scratches throughout that are tough to photograph. The acid etched “Alles für Deutschland” motto and “Ernst-Grah Solingen-Wald” maker mark still both looks great. The crossgrain is mostly visible as you shine it in the light. The fit remains nice and tight and the tip comes to a sharp point. This blade rates a Exc++. The steel based brown anodized scabbard looks great! Nice brown finish, retains some of its factory lacquer and is completely dent free! The solid nickel scabbard fittings look great as well. The ball remains perfectly round 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 “Wm” (Westmark). The dark brown hardwood grip is in great shape. There a hairline crack just above the roundel and the odd pressure mark throughout. The grip to crossguard fits are near perfect. 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. A good one!
