Title NSKK dirk, RZM marked M7/68
Nationality German
Period 1941
Price £450.00

This is the SA dirk 1933 pattern, modified with a black finish to the scabbard by order of Korpsfuhrer Huhnlein in 1936. The RZM code stands for the firm Lauterjung & Co of Solingen. The NSSK were the motorised arm of the SA, providing it with truck and motorcycle elements, co-ordinating training programmes with the Wehrmacht in war time.

Good examples of NSKK daggers are becoming harder to find and this one ticks most of the boxes on condition. The paintwork appears to be original, possibly an early period repaint. The blade retains virtually all original factory finish, eg extant grind marks. The wood of the grip shows some age staining and a small gouge to the obverse with some lifting of the EPNS finish on the mounts at the edges of the woodwork. The scabbard has a few old dents on the leading edge. There is no damage to the top nut. Two screw heads have been somewhat mangled. There are some minor dents to the bottom chape.

[From a vendor, rather than a buyer]

I'm delighted that you are happy with the badge and I hope you can sell it to someone who will value owning it.

I tried to sell it on eBay but they won't accept Nazi items. I then contacted several dealers via a Google search who mostly offered me 40-50 after some haggling. Most of the other dealers tried to conceal its true value in their replies and also lacked manners which doesn't inspire confidence.

Ultimately it's about trust. I should think that most prospective sellers have done their own research and therefore know roughly what their item is worth. You were the only dealer who had the integrity to concede that my valuation was approximately correct and I respect your comment that you can't offer this as you need to make a profit. Your honest approach is greatly appreciated and I felt comfortable taking the risk in sending it to you.

Thank you for a smooth transaction
