Early SS Dagger (#29037)



Out of stock


“Presented for our customers this week is a type of dagger that is quickly disappearing from militaria websites. The SS Dagger is, without question, the most popular dagger produced during the Third Reich. Early examples in excellent condition are approaching the $5K mark, and RZM pieces will shortly surpass the $3K mark with the “glass ceiling” not remaining at one level for long! A perfect opportunity to own one of the better conditioned SS Daggers on the market today.”
