NAZI SA Marine Dagger by Tillmans & Sohne- Scarce dagger and missing from most collections. This is an early SA dagger that has been converted to reflect the fact that the owner transferred into the SA Marine unit. The brown wood handle has been painted black to reflect this transfer. It retains approximately 70% of this black paint. The scabbard has also been treated to reflect a darker anodization. The rest of the dagger has all of the characteristics of early production, including nickel silver fittings throughout, an early nickel silver eagle in the grip, along with the standard SA runic button. The rear of the lower cross guard is stamped “P” for the Pommern district. The anodizing on the scabbard is very nice. The blade has the usual in and out runner marks, and I detect a few light water spots, otherwise it is quite nice with the maker’s logo and name deeply etched into the reverse of the blade. Complete with an RZM vintage short hanger, which may also reflect his later transfer into the Marine unit. Overall near excellent condition and desirable.
