    Default SA-dagger, worn by Franz Seldte

    In another thread I posted material about this fact: Franz Seldte, the
    Stahlhelm Bundesführer, wearing an SA dagger with his Stahlhelm-
    uniform.
    I was asked also to show the photographs here for the interest of those for
    "period edged weapons photos". The earlier given information I also will
    include here as much as possible.

    For those who may ask themselves why Franz Seldte, the Stahlhelm Bundesführer, wears an SA-dagger:
    With the date Juy 26, 1933 he was promoted as SA-Obergruppenführer (published in Führerbefehl Nr. 16
    from August 1, 1933 as II Nr. 1411/33). He was the Reich Minister for Labour and shortly the Reichskommissar
    für den Freiwilligen Arbeitsdienst (taken over by Hierl).
    Simultaneously with his SA-Obergruppenführer promotion Seldte was assigned to the Stab des Obersten SA-Führers
    (the SA High-Command): unter Zuteilung zum Stabe des Obersten SA-Führers. This assignment was lifted with the date
    January 24, 1934 as when he was appointed as Chef des Wirtschaftsamtes
    "Wir sollen auch unser Leben für die Brüder lassen" (1.Joh.3.16):
    zum Gedächtnis Wilhelm Schenk. Er starb fürs Vaterland am 13. Juni 1916

    Thanks as always to Wim for his generously provided information and excellent photographs.

    The pictures also nicely illustrate the Stahlhelm's final uniform and insignia as worn during its brief existence as the N.S.D.F.B.St.

    Many details are worth noting, such as Landesführer Altenburg's sleeve badge for former members of machine gun units, the adjutants' aiguillettes, the badged leaders' cross-straps, the Saar flag etc.

    HPL2008: the Saar-photo indeed shows a lot of items, varying and being interesting.
    Many collectors do nog have any idea about the many variations worn within the
    Stahlhelm-organization.

    My favorites are the leader's shoulder-belts with the special insignia. This material
    I have many photos from. I will show a few for the interest of WRF-members.

    All material comes from the Stahlhelm-archives and was photographed many year ago
    (25 or so). The archive is now in private hands. A few were used in volume 2 of the series
    "Headgear of Hitler's Germany".

    Sorry, this material is off topic, but soooooooooooooooo interesting!

    Does anyone own this dagger or was it lost to time?
