Old German WWII Sa Dagger Aug. Merten Solingen Naz
Old German WWII SA Dagger Aug. Merten Solingen Nazi Military w/ Scabbard & Leather Strap w/ Buckle First of 2
First of two closely related daggers from the same local estate. However, this is a different estate than the estates the book and flag came from. This dagger has inlaid silvered or nickel eagle on handle and an enamel SA logo above the eagle. (the other dagger has a copper one). The words “Aug. Merten Ww. Solingen – Gr” are engraved at the rear bottom of the blade (there is no stepped unsharpened tang on this example) and it reads “Alles Fur Deutschland” (English: All for Germany) in embellished lettering on the other side. The blade appears to have been sharpened, so perhaps it was battle worn. There are metal mounts on the scabbard as well.
Measurements: 15” long and 3” wide at widest point in handle
Very good condition. There are small scratches and tiny dings in the wooden handle and metal mounts. Moderate surface scuffing on the blade itself. Some marks from being pulled in and out of scabbard. Leather strap has some wear and slight cracking consistent with age. Visible surface wear to the eagle. Not sure if it was originally manufactured with a patina. Please note – we are not edged weapons dealers or specialists and we understand that condition and grading is a very important matter to many knife collecting enthusiasts. Please check out are detailed photos and call us in advance of bidding should you have any questions.
