POSTSCHUTZ (POSTAL PROTECTION) LEADERS DAGGER.
This example was purchased privately along with the other example on my site and it has never been in a collection. The hilt fitting still retain almost all silver platting, the black enamel swastikas to the Postschutze crossguard are in perfect condition, the under side is stamped with the postal issue number which is 619 DRP, only early production daggers are found with issue numbers and these are the most desirable, latter production daggers are plain with out issue stampings. The black wooden grip is in perfect condition and is complete with the postal eagle metal insignia. The blade is by Paul Wayersberg which was the only manufacturer of this model dagger, it is close to near mint condition with just a few marks that could probably be removed by gentle cleaning. The scabbard retains at least 95% original paint, it shows light wear from age as you would expect, it is fitted with matching silver fittings. Complete with chain hanger which is complete with spring clip which features the correct DRGM markings to the reverse side. A very nice example of a rare dagger and priced very realistically.
