    A Presentation Dagger for the Occasion of "The first Groundbreaking of the SA Settlement Krefeld"..."SA Standarte 40"....This SA Standarte was indeed based in Krefeld, btw...
    Looking forward to the learned opinions of our Dagger Collectors...
    cheers, Glenn

    All I can add is I believe the gruppe mark NS is correct for this maker and also within the Krefeld region which is positive. For me the dedication size and font seems unusual, as it's rather close in style to to the Ulles Fur Deutchland logo. I only say that as i would rather think the presenter would want the personalization to stand out against what the manufacturer would of done, otherwise it blends in. I will let others weigh in on as to how the inscription was actually made as I'm not certain. Best regards.

    Hi Kevin if at all possible greater clarity and macro shots of the dedication will help greatly. I would like to see if this was laser etched which is easily done these days to hump up standard SA dagger blades. "Grey washing" seems to be the current tool of fakers these days to cover over any imperfections they may have caused during a re-etching of the blade.

    I am not sure of this..but lets take 1 extra step and have clearer photos before making a determination. It does appear to have some pimpling in the dedication in a couple of areas...but also the photos are fuzzy. Better photos please

    Just a precaution before giving it a full thumbs up !

    The dagger itself appears to be a decent fit from top to bottom and the guards were heavily cleaned to a bright shine.

    A separate observation.....
    the guards appear to be Thuringia produced which really may not mean anything ...but just an observation compared to the SA producer seen in this link " Melzer and feller" ..the accent grooves on the guards are the shallow type.

    Hi Kevin...thanks for the extra pics .....to look at them straight away....they look good ..but upon the close up option on my end..the photos are not quite that clear...yet I am seeing traces of pimpling in the lettering ...and vague traces of acid etch in a few letters.

    I can say from these slightly better photos ..but not totally clear.....Im optimistic of the dedications authenticity...and yes at this early hour I had my coffee so my eyes are open

    Thats the best I can give upon the present clarity in the photos.

    Regards Larry

    Hi Kevin ..thank you for going the extra mile in providing clearer photos ...as far as I'm concerned ..the dedication exhibits what I have outlined above by request.

    I see no issues with the dedication and the dagger as a whole. Nice find?
