    Earlier photos showed some kind of large hex head or nut under the tang nut that is then missing in the later shots?

    Hi Glenn, I took all the photos last night with no physical change to anything save the camera angle. I am assuming the 'hex head' is the nut at the top above the cross guard where I've put up more detailed photos? I've not taken the dagger apart. I'm not sure if it ever has been albeit previous posts suggest it may have been....who knows! Thanks for your reply.

    HI Patrick...welcome to the forum..sorry Im late to the party. You have a great piece of early SA History there..and a good read into this Haco Distributor..can be found on this thread here Haco Early SA Dienst Dolch

    The guards are internally marked with numbering in red or black ink..and not stamped. The letter "B" on the lower reverse crossguard is designated for the SA Gruppe Berlin. This dagger is correct in all aspects. Even through the not so great photos...this exclusively made dagger shows itself as a Haco.

    You have a nice piece of Early SA History..from a not so nice and Nasty SA Gruppe and their history that follows them. Enjoy your stay. Regards Larry

    OK, guess it is just a trick of the light and shadow that makes the tang nut look weirdly oversized in the earlier photos. A great looking blade!

    Thanks again for the feedback and the access to the HACO info. I've an SS Dagger (Robert Klass I) that I would like to post at some stage for feedback also. It's really not in great nick but it would be good to get some feedback.
