    Default Value needed for Heer dagger

    I would like to get a ballpark value for this dagger. WKC Solingen marked on the blade. Length of dagger is 14 1/2 inches long. I am thinking of listing it in the classifieds on this site or possibly on ebay. I have touched up the blade a little but not very much. Thanks so much.

    Hello Robert,

    I would like you to do a bit of homework yourself.
    This is a collectors forum, not a value and sell determination forum.
    For prices just take a look at known sellers as Tom Wittmann, Johnnsons Militaria or LakesideTraders
    Google their names for their URL's

    Cheers,
    Ger

    btw you havent even asked if the dagger is genuine or an all parts original.
    You place it in the Luftwaffe section, but...............perhaps its secretly a Heer?
    This side is full of reference material.

    Funny when i replied it was in the Luftwaffe section, LOL, now its back in the Daggers section..hahahha

    Please leave the dagger as is. You will find that collectors do not like when things are cleaned up, especially if you are not experienced in doing so.

    You "touched up the blade a little"? What did you Do to it? And I assume that there is no sheath for it?

    As it looks now (with no original cross grain left) as brushed blade, pity it is.
    If you did your homework and looked around a bit here at the forum, you would have seen the advise Dramos has given you quite a few times......and left the blade as if.

    It would make a nice Letter Opener, if nothing else...But as far as collectability, no dagger collector would pay much for it as it sits now. If some one is looking for a cool curio, perhaps they would purchase it, but don't expect to get original value money for it.

    Hi Robert, welcome to the Forum.

    Like the guys say, it is missing it's scabbard, and the blade has lost
    its original finish in attempting to remove rusty areas. It's worth
    about half it's normal value as a complete set.

    They are not that rare actually, and do not command as much
    dough as most other Third Reich daggers.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    I would say, in this condition 100 euros sounds fair.

    Remember, you have to factor in Shipping costs also. Personally, I would put it at more like $100 US.

    I certainly pay more than 100 , if seller is from Europe.
