SS MANS DAGGER 1933 MODEL.
This is a good RZM example produced in 1938. The plated hilt fitting have never been cleaned and are in remarkably good condition with much silver plating remaining. The black wooden grip is in excellent condition and it is fitted with the SS runic badge and grip eagle, the grip has a very small repair close to the upper crossguard but it is difficult to see unless pointed out. The blade is in excellent condition, the obverse side features the SS motto, the reverse side is marked with the makers details, RZM M7/80 1197/38 SS and which is the makers code for Gustav Spitzer. The scabbard is also in very good condition and it retains approcamatly 95% original black paint just showing light age wear, the matching silver plated fittings are also in fine condition retaining almost all silver finish, even the ball to the lower fitting is perfect. The dagger has been worn but is still in very nice condition and certainly better than most. The SS arm band shown in one of the photographs is for display only and it is not included in the price but it is available separately. Exc++
