  • SA Dagger by SMF Solingen

SA Dagger by SMF Solingen

This item has Sold or is On Hold
This is one of the first SMF made SA Daggers I’ve come across. They seem to be very hard to find despite only rating a 5 out of 10 on the McSARR scale. The grip is a very attractive light brown tone, almost having a slight orange hue. The eagle has a nice age patina that matches the nickel guards and scabbard fittings, and has miraculously retained an honest 98% of its factory detail - barely worn at all. The SA roundel has lost about 30% of its brown background enamel to wear, and shows some age discoloration along the bottom rim...

  • SA Dagger by Gust, Häker Solingen

SA Dagger by Gust, Häker Solingen

This item has Sold or is On Hold
Here’s an 8 out of 10 on the McSARR chart - a scarce Gust. Häker SA Dagger in uncleaned condition. The medium brown grip shows average wear from use but no major damage to note, and a nice tight puzzle-like fit to the guards. The grip eagle has about 95% of its original factory detail, almost no loss from wear. The SA roundel has all of its enamel, but shows some discoloration from age over approximately 70% of its surface.

SA Dagger by Wilh. (Wilhelm) Weltersbach

This item has Sold or is On Hold
A very nice early (1933-35) SA Dagger by the seldom seen maker, Wilhelm Weltersbach (Wilh. Weltersbach). The wooden grip is in fine condition, but does have a few noteworthy nicks in one side of the handle, a very faint small dent near the lower cross guard, and a small hairline crack at the upper cross guard (one on each side - about 1/4” in length). The cross guard vertical fit is tight, and the green tarnishing where the metal meets the wood suggests the dagger has not been cleaned or messed with in quite some time...

  • SA Dagger by Gustav Voss (rare maker)

Here’s one by the maker Gustav Voss, rating a 9 out of 10 on the McSarr rarity scale! In fantastic overall condition the grip on this Voss SA dagger shows only minor wear, with a grip eagle and SA roundel that are about as good as it gets!

  • Early SA Dagger by F. Dick

Early SA Dagger by F. Dick

This item has Sold or is On Hold
There are a lot of SA Dagger makers that collectors desire, but these F. Dick SA Daggers seem to be some of the more desirable of them all. This one has a lot going for it with its deep brown grip, overall excellent condition and a tone to the nickel fittings that we typically see with chained SS daggers. The grip is near perfect, with a dark tone and grain we’ve come to love from this maker. The eagle has some wear from use and age, with about 80% of it’s original detail remaining...

  • Partial Ground Röhm SA Dagger by Carl Eickhorn (Early maker mark) with Swastika Die Flaw

Partial Ground Röhm SA Dagger by Carl Eickhorn (early maker mark) with Swastika Die Flaw

This item has Sold or is On Hold
For all of you hard-core SA dagger collectors, here is the dagger you’ve been waiting for! An early Eickhorn marked large double oval partial Röhm SA dagger. These are extremely scarce since early in the production of the Rohm inscribed SA daggers Eickhorn transitioned to the smaller mark that is positioned much closer to the lower guard...

Early SA Dagger by Gebruder Heller Schmalkalden

This item has Sold or is On Hold
We have here a hard to find SA dagger by maker Gebruder Heller, Schmalkalden in very desirable condition overall! The grip is in very nice condition with mostly typical use wear. The only noteworthy issues with the grip is a scuffed area on the front between the SA roundel and the eagle, and a very discrete (tiny) crack just above the roundel (which is fairly typical)...

M7/33 SA Dagger by F. W. Holler

This item has Sold or is On Hold
A truly nice SA Dagger, this late RZM dagger by F.W. Holler (a RARE maker of SA daggers) is near mint! The metal plating is 99%, with only a couple small chips to the top of the pommel nut. There is a line of extremely minor surface pitting where the top guard meets the grip (on both sides), but hardly worth mentioning...

  • SA Dagger by maker C.G. Haenel Suhl

Early SA Dagger by maker C.G. Haenel Suhl

This item has Sold or is On Hold
A truly exceptional early example of an SA Dagger by the C.G. Haenel firm. It doesn’t get much better than this in terms of overall quality. From handle to tip this is a real screamer! The nice walnut grip on this dagger shows some of the most striking grain of any SA daggers out there. Very few dings or scratches can be found on the surface, and no notable cracks.

Chained NSKK Marine Dagger — M7/66 1939, Carl Eickhorn

This item has Sold or is On Hold
The photos tell the story with this one. An Chained NSKK Marine Dagger by Carl Eickhorn (M7/66), dated 1939. The grip has a nice original sheen finish, which emphasizes the attractive cherry wood color. There are no cracks or chips on either side of the grip, and only a couple very minor use marks. The eagle is in near perfect condition...

Here’s a minty, rarely seen, and very desirable Eickhorn Transitional NSKK dagger with the traditional Eickhorn maker’s mark below the RZM 7/66 1938 mark. The grip on the gorgeous dagger is a deep brown with only very minor wear marks and no cracks or chips.

Early SA Dagger by Rare Maker Otto Simon

This item has Sold or is On Hold
Here’s an exceptional SA dagger by the extremely rare maker Otto Simon, who ranks a 9 on the McSARR 10 scale. Starting at the grip we see a very nice reddish brown tone to the wood, which aside from a few minor dings shows only normal use wear and is in very good condition.

SA Dagger by Gustav Wirth

This item has Sold or is On Hold
A nice SA Dagger by a seldom seen maker, Gustav Wirth. The metal plating is 100%, with no notable flaws whatsoever; very clean and strong fittings! The grip is in great shape, with only very minor scratches and dings, hardly worth noting. The SA roundel has some minor discoloration typically found with these, but isolated to the top 25%, and only the very edge. The remainder of the SA dagger's roundel is very crisp and one of the cleanest I've seen. The grip eagle has the very same color and shine as the cross guards, and retains about 95% of its detail...

  • Chained NSKK Dagger by Eickhorn 7/66 1939

Chained NSKK Dagger by Eickhorn (7/66 1939) with Nickel Silver Chain & Eagle

This item has Sold or is On Hold
What a rare treat it is to find such a nice Chained NSKK dagger with so many great attributes. This Eickhorn dagger has the earlier 1939 dated blade, nickel chain with the Assman “A” logo stamp, nickel eagle, and the perfect blend of age and beauty in an overall condition that is hard to come by these days...

SA Dagger — Gustav Voss

This item has Sold or is On Hold
This is a real rare one! An early SA Dagger by maker Gustav Voss Solingen. SA Daggers by this maker are seldom seen so when they surface they don’t last long at any price. Get it while it’s available! The brown wood grip is without cracks and only normal use wear can be noted -- a real solid grip!

SA Dagger — Kuno Ritter Solingen

This item has Sold or is On Hold
This is a nice, early SA dagger by hard to find maker Kuno Ritter, Solingen with solid nickel upper and lower guards, pommel nut, and scabbard fittings. The grip on this one has a very nice medium brown wood tone (a very elegant color) with what appears to be a period applied thin lacquer coating. The grip eagle retains 100% of its original detail, and the SA roundel is 100% as well...

SA NCO Kepi — Ostland/Westfalen Gruppe

This item has Sold or is On Hold
These SA Kepi caps are some of the most unique, and attractive caps from the Third Reich era in my opinion. This particular Kepi is for an SA NCO with the top color (deep red/maroon) signifying the Ostland/Westfalen Gruppe. This particular cap is constructed of winter-weight wool, which is rare to find. The red band is free of moth damage, which is also fairly rare to see since the entire cap is constructed from a moth’s favorite treat - wool!...

SA Dagger — 1938 Transitional Robert Klaas RZM M7/37

This item has Sold or is On Hold
Transitional Robert Klaas SA Daggers are tough to find in any condition. Klaas is more known for their SS daggers, not their SA daggers, so when one of these comes along collectors usually snatch them up. This one is not exactly the picture of perfection, but still a nice rare SA dagger...

  • Named NSDAP SA Political Visor Cap for Ortsgruppe

Named NSDAP SA Political Visor Cap

This item has Sold or is On Hold
Here’s a very well preserved, and named, Orts level NSDAP Political Visor Cap with a lot going for it! These caps are still priced affordably so pick up a nice one while you still can for a reasonable price. This cap shows just the right amount of wear, and in all the right places! Aside from the minor moth nips that we see in the blue piping (see photos), which is unfortunately rather common with these caps, there are no major flaws to note...
