    Hello everyone! I am a new collector, wanting to collect I should say, as I have yet to make my first purchase. I have been casing local auctions and some online.

    One question I could not find the answer to, did search around a bit, but with the RZM emblem, did they ever stamp the RZM code with the RZM within two circles?

    From what I can tell, there was never two full circles, because the M was connected to the inner circle, never two complete. Am I correct in assuming this was never the case (two complete circles with the RZM inside)?

    Thanks for your input!

    Nevermind about this question, it does seem that some RZM stamps did have the double complete circle.

    Hi, and welcome to the forum!

    Over the years there has been some mis-information printed which has caused some confusion. By rights, the inner circle would connect to the "M". HOWEVER, this is not always the case: on some 1933 pattern SS daggers the RZM mark is within two circles and it does not connect to the letter "M".

    I can show an example here from a named and researched dagger from my collection.

    Also please take a look at this link:

    Cheers, Ade.
