Rare dagger and most are sold before they even hit the site. Blade is a beauty example with strong true maiden-hair pattern that we always find on honor blades. This blade pitted when I got it so I decided to have it professionally restored. Motto is nice with much gilt remaining. The reverse featured the early small oval Eickhorn maker mark, the ONLY maker you should ever see on these M33 Models. The blade rates an Exc++/NM. Scabbard has been releathered with original correct leather. The leather goes right up to the unique silver fittings and not under them. The leather coverage is 100%. Scabbard body is dent-free. The unique honor fittings are solid silver. They are in NM condition showing burnish to the backgrounds. The ball is perfect. Absolutely beauty Eickhorn grip displays superior grains. No chips or cracks, just some normal pressure marks from normal wear. The silver eagle is perfectly fit. Roundel retains 100% of enamel. The silver plated crossguards are all hand chased. Blade is perfectly set into the crossguard. All matching patina. These early honor SA's are earlier and rarer than the chained examples. Yes it has had some restoration work and I have fully disclosed everything. A wonderful piece that is sure to be the highlight of any collection. NM. Ok, many thanks my friends for your inquiries. Although I hate doing this, after a couple requests I carefully disassembled the dagger. The tang is correctly marked and the crossguards and grip are internally numbered as we often see with these pieces.
