An Early Model 1933 Sturmabteilung Dienstdolch by Herbeck & Meyer of Solingen-Höhscheid. The blade on this one looks good. The acid etched “Alles für Deutschland” motto and “Herbeck & Meyer Solingen-Höhscheid” maker mark are both crisp and beautifully executed! The crossgrain is easily visible all the way from the hilt to tip. The fit remains nice and tight and the tip comes to a sharp point. This blade rates a Exc++. It shows spotting, age grey and surface scratches throughout. The steel based brown anodized scabbard looks great. The scabbard body retains a nice brown color and remains dent free. It shows only minor oxidization spotting. The solid nickel scabbard fittings look excellent. A few bumps to the lower fitting. The ball remains perfectly round and all four scabbard screws remain tightly intact. The scabbard / crossguard fit is near perfect. The reverse of the lower crossguard is marked “Nrh” – Niederrhein. The brown hardwood grip is in excellent shape. It has a perfect fit to the crossguards. It shows minor pressure marks throughout but that’s it. 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 great example you will be happy with!
