Back to the dagger.....I predict that even in this economy THAT dagger will not last long. I believe it comes with the original factory Eickhorn issued paper sack with the word 'Mit Widmund' stamped in red. (With Dedication) There is only one other Himmler dagger That I know of that has survived with it's original sack.
For the guy with deep pockets- this ones a No Brainer.
Your not going to find a more complete example in that condition IMHO.
Witty does get the prime daggers. He's a great dealer, who's taken much time with even beginning collectors, and who had contributed a huge amount of knowledge to the dagger community with his outstanding series of 'Exploring the German Dagger' books.
Stunning dagger seeing pieces like this acts as an inspiration to keep on going in this hobby...just need to work out how to get the money!!
How much are human organs going for nowdays?
Id swap my motorcycle for that dagger...in a heartbeat.....
