    not really my subject so thoughts on whether this is a genuine SA dagger would be appreciated

    There is a very small 'No' on the crossguard.
    Are the chape screws normally that large?

    many thanks, Dave

    From what I see you a nice SA dagger with the No being the Gau/group marking. The mark is from Nordsee.
    If I’m not mistaken this maker only made the early SA Daggers.

    many thanks Marty, I can relax a bit now! The Gau mark is to identify the area in which it was issued?

    regards, Dave

    Ok Larry, so the dagger and scabbard would appear to be a mismatch if, as Marty suggests, the dagger is an early period manufacture.

    Many thanks for the information

    Larry please take a second look at the scabbard, it looks like they only replaced the lower fitting for a plated one.
    The screwholes dont fit, the throat misses a screw too, so the scabbard had a workover, but it looks like an anodized one…

    thanks guys, here's a few more photos of the scabbard in case it helps. The top end would appear to a different finish to the chape which looks sort of orange peel effect under the plating. To me the body of the scabbard looks painted but not sure how you would tell that from anodised finish
