This pattern of eagle was never used on NSKK daggers. Only used the standard SA design.

I agree also with Ades Comments concerning this grip eagle..which was not contracted in any order from the SA high command to add these grip eagles to their daggers. Malsch & Ambron was a fairly common maker appearing as a 3 out of 10 in rarity. That would mean their production numbers..would be nearly as high as Eickhorn and EP&S. Thats too much money a those extra pfennigs add up over the long run costing Malsch alot more to produce these daggers..and trying to keep up with their top competitors. Not going to happen especially back then..when their country as beginning to come out of a Financial depression.
"Well maybe it could be a Christmas dagger..from the early years?..... No!...the SA Christmas daggers..were seen only on SA..and the NSKK had not yet produced any Christmas daggers..with the special Gothic motto font seen below.
The font seen on Vlads example is a standard 1933-34 widely seen font especially seen on EP&S dagger blades. This dagger is not of the early production IMO and possibly parted.
Im not one to go out and purchase..this dagger as there is nothing to support this grip eagle. Below is the Motto font used on the Early SA Christmas daggers. Regards Larry
