Postal (Postschutz) Protection Leaders Dagger

Postal Protection DaggersCommissioned in 1939 and designed by Paul Weyersberg, the daggers issued to the Third Reich’s Postal Protection Service (Postschutz) as part of their official uniforms were similar to the RLB daggers (Reichsluftschutzbund or German Air Protection Federation). However postal protection daggers had a number of interesting features which distinguished them from their counterparts. Unique to the postal dagger and chief among its features was its distinctive crossguard. Fashioned from solid nickel, the crossguard incorporated the head of an eagle where it met the grip. Directly below the eagle’s head in the center of the crossguard was a disc containing a swastika made from black enamel. Additionally the crossguard contained a single line dividing top from bottom and a subtle sloping design at its ends (upward at one end and downward at the other). Other notable features include silver plated fittings and a silver portapee with a cord that incorporated interwoven orange threads for a distinctive design touch. Another distinguishing characteristic unique to the postal protection dagger is its nickel plated chain clip. The dagger’s blades were made from carbon steel and contained no markings other than the maker’s mark. The postal protection daggers also were quite heavy owing in no small part to their solid nickel fittings.

We can’t get enough of these Postal Protection Daggers, also referred to as Postschutz Daggers. This is perhaps the best we’ve seen to date (anywhere) in terms of overall condition, yet priced very reasonably. Starting with the grip, the ebony wood is completely free of cracks and chips. If you’ve studied these daggers you’ll know that these grips were prone to cracking so finding one as stable as this is rare in and of itself! There is notable verdigris where the wood of the grip meets the pommel cap and the guard, so we believe this dagger has never been disassembled, an added plus!...

One of the more collectible (and rare) of the WW2 German daggers, the Postal Protection Dagger by maker Paul Weyersberg. This dagger is absolutely stunning! The nickel plated fittings are superb, with only modest use scratches. The ebony grip is smooth and virtually flawless. Typically you find these with several deep scratches, dings, dents or even repainted. The grip on this example is the best we’ve seen, down to the detail of the grip insignia.

These Postal Defense Leader Daggers are some of the most stunning daggers in our opinion. We simply love the detail and uniqueness about them, and are honored to present this example to our collectors for consideration. The ebony wood grip on this one is very nice, with no cracks or chips to note, and an eagle device at the center that shows 100% of it’s original detail. The grip shows only minor use wear, consisting mainly of a few small impact dings, but nothing unexpected...
