    Default Early SA Dienstdolch by F. Herder A.S.

    Gents, this is my latest catch, a nice early SA dagger with a great blade with lots of the original cross!
    The icing on the cake is a great 2 piece hanger with nickel parts!
    It looks like the scabbard has some scraatching and dents, but thats only schadow markings , it has 1 very small dent on the front just below the crossguard.
    I think, although the seller didnt mentioned it and its inlay is very good, the grip eagle has been replaced along the way, otherwise im very happy with this one!
    Enjoy the pictures

    Eye Popper Gerrit!! The cross grain is great. IMO I feel the icing is the black anodized scabbard making it an NSKK. Very rarely you will see an NSKK with a anodized scabbard...as the majority were painted. That is a find in itself. Nice dark grip!! The grip eagle is a great fit and the lower crossguard to scabbard throat fit is tighter than...... Lol oh you know what I mean. Nice to see that!! Larry

    Thank you gents
    Larry the scabbard has a very deep brown color, its look in de right light almost black, but it is still is brown..dont think its NSKK, a pity for that, LOL
    A few years ago it was not so hard to catch a early SA dagger in good shape....that has changed since!
    Its getting harder and harder and prices going up, it looks like a lot of collectors have discovered the SA dagger too!

    Got to love all that Cross Grain! The grip wood is also top notch-if the eagle's been replaced, they did an excellent job on it-maybe it was a contemporary repair! You can See that This one was carried big time, by the wear on the sheath reverse's anodizing! That's an SA that would fit in Any collection! Nice find! Hope you got a great deal on it! And you're right-the 2 piece nickel fitted hanger is a nice extra touch!

    Thank you Gents for the kind words!

    i was a bit concerned about the grip eagle, although its a great inlayed one, it differs from the other early ones i have, although they all differ, this ones is very distinct!
    Im totally at ease now, its a typical F.Herder grip eagle, searched and found them on the early Herders
    I'll add this one found on the net, so you can compare:

    Hi Gerrit,, yea the photos threw me off ,,which made me think the scabbard was black. You still have a fine example! Sometime in the near future the prices for SAs will sky rocket,, and that push in price will come when Tom Wittmann releases his massive SA reference. The time to get these gems is now while the door is still open at reasonable prices. regards Larry
