A nice early Hitler Youth knife from Anton Wingen Jr. with a lot going for it!

These knives are typically seen in very used and worn condition due to the use they received by their young owners during the WW2 period. This particular example is no exception. The nickel plating of the metal parts surrounding the grip show a good deal of wear, along with some oxidation and surface corrosion. This is mainly isolated to the “J” guard area where the blade meets the handle. Aside from that there is some surface wear from the leather retainer strap snap where the button rubbed against the surface.

The grip plates are solid, with no cracks or chips to note. The Hitler Youth diamond emblem mid-grip is well seated and virtually flawless, save a very small surface chip to the black enamel of one of the Swastika arms (almost not worth noting).

The leather scabbard buffer pad that used to be seated just below the guard has been lost to time, which isn’t abnormal. This is why you see the slight gap between the guard and blade (the buffer pad would have provided a hiding place for this gap). The blade is in average condition for these knives, and has a clear and crisp motto (Blut und Ehre!) on one side, and the Anton Wingen Jr. maker’s mark on the other. The photos do not do the motto justice, it is very clear and prominent under good lighting.

The scabbard has no dents but does show the expected corrosion, with approximately 50% of the original black paint still in tact. The leather strap is complete and very supple, not dry.
