Gal comes into Portland gun show with this and boy does it look good. Not shiny at all. 36 scabbard missing all but one chain link. Seems to me that the number is way to high for an early dagger. My natural default position is fake. Thoughts? Doug

Pictures? Or am I at home and my wife is assuming I know what she is talking about LoL.....
Just busting on that last comments but yes....pictures would help
My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

Hi Doug, I don't see an issue with the number. I have an early 1936 dagger numbered 179765.
Pics would be good if you have them.

She just buzzed by before I could get the macro lens on my phone. Doug
This number belongs to an Untersturmführer, DoB is 5th August 1903
Maybe I'll get contacted again. Got any more bio info? Doug
No photos.... Again ??? "A picture is worth a thousand words" Literally...G

Numbers on daggers only mean that the owner of a dagger decided to have his own membership number engraved on it. They don't necessarily denote any particular time period.
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
Numbers looked stamped not engraved. No group number I saw. No RZM so it's early. I was thinking that there were not that many SS members at that time. If she contacts me I can ad pictures. Nice to know that the scabbard and dagger go together. There are so many random stuff stuck together. Doug
This is like having a teaparty and all its missing is the tea......
