RED CROSS LEADERS DAGGER WITH KNOT, MINT CONDITION.

RED CROSS LEADERS DAGGER WITH KNOT, MINT CONDITION.

All silver hilt fittings are in mint condition with fine detail to the red cross eagle and swastika cross guard design. Mint orange grip, the gip is slightly lighter under the knot as this part of the grip has been protected from sunlight, a rather nice feature to see. The blade is in mint condition and it is very impressive. The matching scabbard is also in mint condition with all silver platting remaining, the suspension holes are the oblong type, this is the scarce variation that has a single small screw at the very bottom of the scabbard to hold the internal scabbard weight in place, most do not have this feature and is probably a trait of a certain maker but who that was we do not know. Complete with silver knot. Mint and probably the best you will ever find.

Complete with metal eagle and deluxe silver bullion cockade and it is fitted with silver officers cap cords which are held in place with two small silver buttons. The interior of the hat features a grey artificial silk lining with celluloid patch with makers name, W.Thirle, Karlstr 27, Munchen, the hat is fitted with a late style sweat band which is still complete with just some age wear. Several small moth nips to the hat but over all it is still in extremely nice condition and it is certainly an interesting variation. Exc++
