    Hi Rob, Erich is correct, sorry I missed on that point.

    It is the mark to show the dagger passed through one of the three SS distribution centres. These were:

    "I" was for Munich
    "II" was for Dresden
    "III" was for Berlin.

    "I" is the most commonly encountered mark. The Berlin mark is less often seen. I suspect this is due to most liberated daggers in collections today came via US and British soldiers. Berlin marked daggers would have gone to districts in eastern Germany which were occupied by the Red Amy, so hence the general lack of these in collections.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Ade! Munich it is!! Makes sense what you say about the Berlin "III" being the hardest to find given that most would have gone East - or in the trash!!

    Cheers!

    Thanks guys! Yes....I've had the chance to hold a real killer Himmler honor dagger and the history just poured out of it....would certainly go nice in the collection - but the idea of taking out a second mortgage on the house keeps me away! Oh yeah....and the divorce that would follow would also not be good! hahahaha
    Glad you guys like it....I'm stoked!
    Cheers!
