Manfactured by Melzer and Feller, whose logo is the Running Horse. Based on the McSarr SA Rarity Rating, this dagger is rated as a '7'. Ratings are 1-10, with a 10 being the rarest. This is a Pre-1935 model as evidenced by the SA Group Marking 'Fr' on the reverse lower crossguard for the Franken Group. These Pre-1935 types were Initially made with the highest quality, being produced out of hand-fitted nickel fittings, hardwood grips and brown anodized scabbards. The blade on this piece is in excellent condition and there is still evidence of crossgraining. There are however, some small grind marks about 1-inch length by about 1/4-inch on the reverse side midway on the blade that I want to point out. Other than that, there are no nicks to the blade edges. What is really outstanding is the Maker Mark and etched motto "Alles für Deutschland", both dark, crisp and beautifully executed There are a few runner marks from the in-out of the scabbard, but not all that bad. The blade fits snugly into the scabbard. Whoever owned this dagger took great care of it.
The handle is a deep rosewood look and the eagle inset is one of the most perfect set into the handle. The SA roundel is in fine condition. To the right of the roundel is a small scratch that extends up onto the crossguard. I mention that for clarity and you can see it in one of the pictures.. The crossguards are an almost perfect fit to the handle with just the slightest bit of light to be seen when holding it upright.
The scabbard is the anodized type with hardly any marks on it save for a little what appears to be a rust spot, but is not very noticeable. The ball tip scabbard fitting is undented nor is it split. The screws holding the fittings in place appear to be unbuggered.
The few pictures are posted, but if you would like to see more, you can contact me with your request with any questions you may have.
I rate this dagger as a 9 out of a 10. Not cheap, but priced on it's condition as well as being an early piece. You will not be unhappy with this dagger. (Lot D-006).
