I've become fairly well versed with SS daggers recently, but still don't have a chained example in my collection to compare to. Chained SS daggers always give me pause so I'd like other opinions on this one. I'm not sure I like the eagle on this one either; I've never come across one with such a dark patina. Also, the lower cross guard is not marked with a roman numeral, and both guards are plated. Weren't Boker cross guards nickel?
I collect all types of WW2 relics, with a specialty in German SS Daggers.
