German WWII SS Dagger by Helbig- This is a textbook example by this maker, which is very distinctive in many ways. First of all, the lower cross guard is thicker than standard political dagger cross guards. The second unique characteristic is that the aluminum eagle is set higher up on the black ebony wooden grip. The third characteristic for this maker’s political daggers is that the motto “My honor is loyalty” is lightly etched on the obverse of the blade, and the maker information itself, which is on the reverse of the blade, is also lightly etched. All those factors being taken into consideration indicate that this is a definite 100% original Helbig produced dagger. The insignia on the handle is excellent, as is the nickel plating throughout the hilt and the scabbard. The original black enameled paint has beautiful aged cracking but is 98% intact. The blade comes out of the scabbard very hard, but overall the blade is quite nice, with the exception of some light scratches. The maker and its RZM code, which is 1163/38/SS, are still quite visible. The short black leather hanger is missing 50% of the finish on the fittings and the leather does have scuffs. This would be an excellent starter piece or a variation for political dagger collectors. Overall near excellent condition.
