German WWII Hitler Youth Leader’s Dagger by E & F Hörster- Fine example which is a direct veteran family acquisition. This is textbook in every way for an example made by Hörster. The plating on the pommel is approximately 80% intact. As normal, the plating on the cross guard is only 20% in place. The plating on the scabbard is 50% in place and is over an original brass base. All the details are still quite obvious, including the Hitler Youth diamond on the pommel cap and the stylized Hitler Youth eagle on the upper fitting of the scabbard. The grip wrap is 100% in place, tight, and nicely toned. The blue Moroccan leather on the scabbard is 100% present and, with the exception of extremely slight indentations, rates full excellent. The blade has the Hitler Youth motto “BLUT UND EHRE!” This has many water spots which are visible, but the plating is still virtually intact. Might clean up more. This dagger was contracted by the Hörster firm and has its RZM contract number which is “M7/36.” The thick leather buffer is still in place. Overall sound example which has never been in a collection before.
