SS OFFICERS CHAINED DAGGER 1936 MODEL.
A good example purchased privately which has not been in a collection before and at a bargain price. This a very interesting example dating to about 1937 and is from the period when they were changing over production of SS36 model dagger fittings from nickel silver to silver plated metal. The black ebony grip is in excellent condition with no crack or chips just light age, the grip is inset with SS runic insignia and silver eagle, the nickel silver cross guards fit the grip perfectly and as you would expect there is no SS group mark. The blade is in extremely nice condition, it features the SS motto to the obverse side and it is plain on the reverse side with out a makers name which is correct for the the 36 model dagger, there is still a good percentage of cross grain and original polish to this blade. The scabbard is the anodized type and it is fitted with plated fittings, the upper fitting shows some minor lifting to the fitting, the lower fitting has a slight dent to the ball, the fittings are still very nice but could probably be improved if required.The chain hanger is the 2nd pattern and it is in extremely nice condition, the reverse side of one of the links has the SS runic acceptance stamp. Not a mint dagger but still in extremely collectible condition and priced very realistically at a bargain price compared to what they normally sell for. [Condition: Exc+]
