Here is a nice reference for makers of SA daggers. wardaggers.com - German Dagger RZM Codes and SA Daggers , yours is listed. I cannot advise as to price.
I love asking kids what they want to be when they grow up because I’m still looking for ideas.
Hi Joronas .... A couple of things to consider... #1 if you are the RZM type collector then the price would be something to consider and compared to othe RZM types upon condition... There are those who just collect RZM daggers by the permit number... IMO a bit on the high side .... #2... The price above of $716 is within the price range of a half decent early SA dagger. With an early type you get quality and craftsmanship and a better return value.
The choice is yours if you are the RZM type collector. Regards Larry

Hi Joronas, looks a good dagger. Got nickel guards and scabbard fittings which isn't the usual but beings they match id be happy.
Probably $700 ish dollars is the going rate, I haven't looked at SA dagger prices for a while. However they have shot up recently, and no doubt will shoot up further when wittmans book come out.
Really for what you pay for these SA daggers you get a hell of a dagger for the money I think.
This RZM dagger is not in the $700 price range, $500 max !!
Hold out for an early maker marked example with solid nickle fittings, you will be much happier in the end, mark my words

If your going to get one get an early one....
Joronas as you will know by now the gents above prefer the early SA dagger.
I think they are right all the way, but they have the advantage of being grey, having money and a belly, and a wife that bother them when they buy daggers ( which only costs us 200 dollars each )
So what im trying to say, buy whaat you can afford, but take at heart, bad cheap daggers sell hard when you need to get rid of them or want aan upgrade.
When buying RZM daggers try to find the real good ones, and buy them as cheap as possible, make offers and dont accept the selling price up front.
You can save lots of cash this way.
The RZM dagger you show here isnt a bad looking one but not a 700+ range either, more likely what Mac says.
