This is a very nice, uncleaned WW2 Böker SS Dagger, acquired without a grip eagle from the son of the vet who brought it back from the war. Unfortunately, the son did not know why the eagle was removed, but evidence suggests it may have been replaced during war-time, and the replacement simply came loose and fell off. What you see is the result of carefully selecting a replacement eagle from the same period, and of the same metal and color as the original. The fit is very tight, and to the untrained eye, looks as if it is original to the dagger.
A very nice Veteran acquired World War II Luftwaffe Dagger by Alcoso. Pommel cap and cross guard are in very nice condition, with only very modest wear. The grip shows only very minor nicks, but no cracks or notable chips and is otherwise solid. The scabbard and ferrule show an honest amount of surface rust, and sadly the scabbard has a decent size dent between the hanger rings. As for the blade, it shows a good deal of discoloration that may simply be dried casmoline. It is completely uncleaned so there is no way to tell without making an attempt at cleaning the blade. The hangers set is in great shape, with average wear to the metal fittings, and no notable stitching or fabric issues.
