    Nicely conditioned dagger Popcorn,, this one must of slipped through the cracks as it has avoided the dreaded RZM stamping of the transitional phase. We see sometimes Early SA daggers with nickel crossguards with no gruppe mark,, possibly an oversight IMO by the stamper or Quality control. This one is no exception as oversights do happen in the quality control process...then and Now! ...special note also is the fact that The beginning of the transitional period started in 1934 as we see some SS daggers ( 120/34 & 121/34) were on the front of the line before the RZM became into full swing. IMO Popcorn you have a rarity...or there is always the possibility the guards were damaged at some point in time and was sent back for a professional "refit" during the period,, using a newer version guard and a great tight fit!! Still,, it was there during the early struggle period,, great piece of History for your first SA regards Larry

    Thanks Larry. I am very happy to own it. I'm wondering if anyone has seen similar period daggers assembled like this? I read that a long time ago ground Rohm daggers were concidered damaged and not worth much until it was discovered why they were ground. I hope this is a transitional that slipped by the RZM or was made just before the RZM came into the game but ofcourse I can't be sure. Either way Paul sold it for what I consider a very reasonable price.

    Hello again. I noticed something interesting. The top of the tang nut also matches the patina on the guard underneath it and it appears to be nickel plated as well(same spotting as the guard). Everything on this dagger looks like it matches and fits. I think Paul's assessment is bang on about this being a transitional(he did say he wasn't 100% sure but that's he thinks it is).

    You will notice these little subtleties every time you pick it up sometimes even after a long period of time you see something new. Like a Multi faceted diamond!

    That's the truth. I'm so glad I passed up a repro SS and grabbed this. It means so much more the workmanship and history behind these items. To have a piece of history from a party that doesn't exist anymore but greatly influenced the 20th century is hard to put into words. Now the delima, save up for a SS Dagger or go for an early and RZM SA Dagger first? Well I won't have to worry for a while. The buzz from my first dagger isn't close to wearing off.(I don't know if it ever will)
