    Wiki, I would recommend a grey background. Me and Ger both use cardboard as background. Depending on the colour of the grip I use lighter or darker cardboard. Here's an example I recently posted.
    Eickhorn army dagger with glass grip
    The dagger is not even close to yours but I just wanted to show you how a cardboard background can work.

    I Always use the medium grey background, got that tip from the author Hans Seegers, who has published numerous books and articals about binoculars, he explained that a mediumgrey background is the most neutral color, leaving the details of the object as they are.

    it sure makes this dagger look great!

    regards,
    Ger

    See Jill Halcomb's book on the subject organizations, pp. 137 and 217. The gold dagger was worn exclusively by Generalgouvernment Poland Officials. The RMBO dagger was designed but never produced; you can see GO daggers in wear by those officials. There are contradictions in Angolia's books on the subject daggers. I have contacted him more than once on the subject and have had other noted authors contact him as well. None of us have received replies.

    These pictures are scanned from slides. The late build is as Wiki's example of the Eickhorn RMBO, with single retaining screw at the rear of the scabbard. The gilt finish is muted. The hangers have orange/brown backs to match the facings of the RMBO uniform.

    Thank you for your post and info. These are the first photos I have seen of the dagger with the RMBO-style hangers. Halcomb cites period TR regulations in her book. Obviously there were modifications to those regs. I have a very nice GO dagger and have always enjoyed researching the history and wear of these unique daggers.
