    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ade, No doubt its a real dagger does the rarity make it a better/ more a valuable piece I am told it's a 9/10 on the rarity scale, but the price was quite modest

    To a hard core SA collector, I guess the value would increase a bit compared to a more common maker. The only thing holding it back is the condition of the blade.

    Hi Scott..the producer is a common one being around a "4" but yet..even some of these common makers are getting hard to find..leaving them to be a bit more rarer than when first observed. Regardless of Condition..you still have a piece of early history....collect it for the time period..and not just the item...you can always upgrade later..and use it as a down payment..for a future better conditioned one.

    Ade is correct for the type collector..condition is everything. Regards Larry

    Hi Scott,

    a genuine Schmidt in average condition.
    I agree with you that Carl Schmidt is a 9 on the list, as every Schmidt is a 9 or a 10 ( Sorry Larry )
    But what is much more important for a Collector is the condition of the blade, as blades are what we collect!
    A rare 10 with a blade like yours will be cheap, as you noticed yourself.
    A more common 4 like for example this Herder A.S. with a gorgeous blade like is a complete other bal game, collectors pay for quality:
    Early SA Dienstdolch by F. Herder A.S. a Minty textbook example
    I also added a picture of the Schmidt on the Ralf Siegert list
    Regards,
    Ger

    Frequency in sightings were observed as 10/1000 daggers in Fishers reference and McSaar as compared to Ralf Siegerts 1/1000. Its a matter of opinion and the authors sightings..which..there tend to be more of this producer on this side of the river..than what was left over in Europe after the war from trophy hunters. No apologies necessary Ger Regards Larry

    I agree larry, there is a significant differance between Europe & The States looking at rarety lists.
    I think that those lists are hardly relevant in today's market anyway
    I have seen that mint examples of any maker nowadays are harder to find then just 5 years ago, its rapidly changing.

    Regards,
    Ger
