    Default SS dagger – figures on a sheath?

    I received this remarkable early SS-dagger Boker.
    After receiving from the seller I saw figures on a sheath "6558871" and "1080".
    I never saw before such. Someone has information or the assumption concerning it.
    I will be grateful to any help concerning this information.
    Thanks.

    Never saw such crude engraving before...maybe done as a postwar ID?

    Love the dagger..the numbers look to be done by a dremel..what a shame..severely depreciates a desirable dagger

    Dagger is fine by me but the added scribed numbers are a bummer. Really scars it up and diminishes the value of the piece. If they were stamped serial numbers you would have something there to research.

    A scary thought that is commonly practiced is the recent stamping of SS numbers to hump up the value.

    So true Larry. I have seen one in all my years that a buddy had who was able to track it back to the soldier. There are many folks out there who are doing as you say. It is something to surely watch. Having the forum sure can help when considering a purchase as a place to go for great eyes and experience.

    The numbers could also be from the old time practice of dremeling an ID number on stuff like they used to do years ago for insurance identifications, etc. Used to be you would see collector guns and everything with little numbers and initials etc engraved on them. Thankfully, they no longer do this idiotic practice, but 50-60 years ago, it was quite common. On solid nickel fittings, it is almost tempting to see if they could not be buffed off. Not really a whole lot to lose by trying. At least they are not carved into the grip or the blade itself, as you sometimes see.

    Or it can be museums markings.

    At least the numbers are on a spot that doesn't distract from the rest of the dagger. I wouldn't mind owning this dagger but if the numbers were on the cross guard I wouldn't want it.
