When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling

Hi Jacob, good luck with your deal. Get the guarantee in writing.
I cannot offer any real advice on these Mussert Crosses. I have read a lot about them, but even Dutch collectors cannot seem to agree on what is original and what is not. I do know that many don't like this particular pattern. I cannot show any pics, but there is one style, which were ground dug in 1945 or '46 in Holland, found in the grounds of a former NSB building, which are pretty much without dispute as being original. I cannot recall now if any are shown here on the forum in the NSB thread? But it might be worth taking a look?
Hope this helps?
PS: just found the post with the Mussert Cross:
i got the words in my mailbox so i`ll print it out and keep it near the cross at all times when i got it in the collection
but maybe it comes up for sail again i dont know just to make the person happy whit the dagger as i already have a verry nice sa dagger whitch isnt grounded or something. it isnt a rohm dagger but itll do
the medall. i find these often on tarnmilitaria for about 400 whitout the little pin i dont know the exact storie what collectors think of these but were gonna take a look in the nsb section and if there isnt one i`ll be happy to make a new tread about these
oh can you change my nick to jacob dubbel as i dont know houwe i should do it
here is a link to a simular piece whitch i got offert Product info:
it has the same details as mine and he also give lifetime garanty
seems that the one in your link has very mutch wear damadge thats why it looks a bid different
Keep the dagger! Agreeing with Ade, that is why the split, carefully loosen the tang nut. They should only be hand tighteed any way. The dagger will NEVER go down. Party armbands are a special collector item. All want daggers. and 750Euro on the armband...are you kidding? U.S. Price $750-850 on the dagger
