The First Model RLB Officer’s dagger is very RARE to find in any condition, let alone one as nice as this!  The fittings throughout have a very heavy metal base with outstanding silver plating grading at 100%, in addition to having a very attractive patina.  The pommel cap has the pointed top, exhibiting no wear/age to the top or the fluted sides.  Very nice indeed!  The dark blue leather grip is a beauty displaying nearly no wear/age, grading near mint.  The SCARCE First style RLB grip insignia features the blue enameled RLB initials with the small matching enameled swastika below.  The deep blue enamel is intact and silver over copper sunburst retains the majority of the silver, with some of the background burnishing still in place.  The crossguard portrays the art deco eagle with the floating swastika within the wreath showing faint wear/age, grading near mint.  The blade is bright and shiny with nearly 100% crossgraining to both sides.  The edges and tip remains factory crisp.  There are a series of light scratches from the in and out movement but overall the blade is near excellent.  The reverse of the blade is etched with the Weyersberg double oval circles, which displays the company name and location Paul Weyersberg / Solingen .  Inside is the Excaliber sword flanked by wheat shafts.  The dark blue leather washer is present, grading near mint.  The scabbard shell is straight throughout having a matching blue color Moroccan leather.  The leather has survived remarkably for being over 65 years old. The scabbard mounts are uncleaned and dent-free, in addition to having a beautiful silver finish.  The upper mount shows NO visible wear/storage age, while the lower does exhibit minor carrying wear here and there!  They are retained by four flathead style side screws which are intact.  The short leather hanger which is often missing shows light wear/age, grading very good.  This leather is equipped with nickel oval disks which close the loop via nickel rivets and is complete with the nickel snap clip which is reverse marked, A and DRGM. I have not had one of these to offer in many years. A VERY fine example of a very rare dagger!
