Original RARE German NSKK Partial “Name Only” Ground Röhm Presentation Dagger Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified
Original RARE German NSKK Partial “Name Only” Ground Röhm Presentation Dagger Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified. This early example is equipped with fine, patinated, solid nickel mounts throughout. The piece does not look to have been cleaned since the War. The tang nut does not appear to have been out of this piece. The guards have good, smooth surfaces, crisp edges, and precise accent grooves. The lower crossguard is Gruppe marked, “No”. The grip appears to be a mahogany wood, featuring fairly high ridge construction, and pleasing grain running vertically throughout the length. The grip remains in fine condition, with slight shrinkage of the wood, and it’s a bit separated from the guard from getting wet at some point. . The SA runes button is slightly turned to the left, and the enamel is still perfect. The grip eagle is the nickel type, being the style with “beak which points upwards slightly”. This bird retains its details to its head, breast feathering, wing feathering, talons, wreath, and mobile swastika. The scabbard shell is straight throughout. It reflects the original, black, painted surface done in 1936, over the old, anodized type. This paint shows usage with wear along the edges. Overall, the paint is perhaps 85%. The paint still has good luster to it, and looks well with this dagger. The upper scabbard mount is in perfect condition. The lower mount has a hit to the ball, which has knocked it upwards slightly at the left side. There is no splitting, however, in the ball. The screws are all in place. There are a couple of “force” marks around the holes on the lower mount. This would have happened when the scabbard was dented. The dagger is equipped with a short hanger and belt loop connected to the carrying ring. The leather to both pieces is a matching, very dark, brown. The hanger is the early type, and is missing the little retainer loop. It is equipped with early nickel mounts, the snap clip being the “snout nosed” type, having the spring retained by a rivet. The matching belt loop is in good condition, having a nickel plated, steel “D” ring. The obverse blade of this example is in excellent condition, still being nice and bright, and having all of its original, factory grain. The SA motto is crisp and deep, Other than the mildest of age signs, the obverse blade is in good used condition. The reverse blade shows some grinding across the surfaces, which was done when the Rohm signature only was removed. The rest of the inscription is all there. It is interesting to note, the trademark is the small circles used by this company specifically for Rohm inscriptions. The two small circles contain the firm’s name and location, “E.P. & S. Solingen” Logo. The blade shoulders perfectly meet the lower crossguard contour. A very nice, “name only” dagger here, in very collectible condition. When Ernst Rohm was executed after the “Night Of The Long Knives” his presentation daggers were ordered to have his name removed, most had the entire side removed of all text but this one only had his name removed keeping the rest of the dedication and making it very rare and desirable . Nice period used NSKK Dagger captured by a U.S. Veteran and brought home as a war trophy. Nice used example showing the expected age and wear. 100% Guaranteed to be authentic Brought home by a solider as a trophy of war. A very desirable an outstanding example. Don’t miss this one!
