ORIGINAL WWII German Luftwaffe Officer’s Dagger By SMF Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified
Original WWII German Luftwaffe Officer’s Dagger By SMF Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified. This SMF dagger has all textbook fittings. The pommel is a fine aluminum example having very nice hand enhanced oak leaves that surround the swastikas on both sides. The crossguard is matching and has good pebbled pattern on the reverse with maybe 25 percent of the darkening worn from the center of the panel. The obverse features the flying eagle and it still has good detail throughout clutching a mobile swastika. The grip is a very attractive dark orange color. It is in nice condition to the eye. The scabbard is missing (priced accordingly) The blade of this example is still bright being a nickel plated type as SMF did. Overall the blade grades easily at excellent plus plus still having its needle like tip. The reverse ricasso is etched with the seated king trademark over the firm’s initials “SMF”. Above the king is a waffenamt consisting of a stickbird with the number 5 in his belly. The original pebbled leather washer is in place deep within the crossguard recesses. All in all not a bad SMF dagger and priced accordingly. 100% guaranteed to be authentic with Museum COA (Certificate Of Authenticity). This Luftwaffe dagger is one of the desirable artifacts from the Third Reich. DO NOT MISS THIS! OUTSTANDING EXAMPLE! EXCELLENT (ALMOST MINT) condition (No Scabbard).
