    Default SS 1933 pattern Dienstdolch distribution markings & Early producers

    These can be found on the reverse side of the lower crossguard of the SS Dienstdolch and comprise of a small die struck marking of either a Roman numeral, I, II or III.

    SS daggers inspected and then were sent to to the various SS districts throughout Germany from three main distributions centers.

    I = München.

    II = Dresden

    III = Berlin.

    "I" seems to be the most frequently observed marking on SS daggers in collections today in Western Europe and the USA. I think this is due to most SS daggers were liberated by US or British forces and they had little opportunity to obtain daggers distributed from eastern parts of Germany. Soviet Forces tended to liberate those with Berlin markings.

    Cheers, Ade.


    Also Included with the early District stampings above are the early SS makers below that would of had these stampings applied to.
    I will be updating this information periodically as it surfaces....... Regards Larry

    Hello Gents I merged together with Ades SS distribution markings thread which are appropriate district stampings seen on early SS makers only..with a list of early SS producers and Rohm SS dedication pattern daggers..that have these markings appear on the back of the lower crossguard.
    These are the producers that I know of to date and the forum would welcome any addition to this list as information arises. Regards Larry
