Here’s a nice, late-war SA Dagger by F. W. Holler (RZM 7/33 1940), a SCARCE maker of SA Daggers.
The dagger overall is in fantastic condition. The grip is a nice deep burgundy with no noteworthy dings and only a couple extremely minor scratches (almost not worth noting). There is a small hairline crack just above and center of the SA roundel, between the roundel and upper guard. We see cracks develop here with these late-war SA daggers. The grip to guard fit is as expected with RZM SA’s, some gaps but nothing unusual. The nickel plated guards do show some surface pitting (also as expected), more on the top guard than the bottom. The grip eagle is nice, showing 95% of it’s original detail.
The scabbard is a nice milk chocolate brown tone, with only normal use wear and no dings or major scratches to note. The upper scabbard throat fitting is very nice, with only a couple of minor scratched/scuffs, but no surface corrosion. The scabbard tip fitting does show some plating corrosion, but nothing out of the ordinary for these plated fittings. The tip ball is completely in tact, none of the dings you usually see with these.
The blade is very nice on this one! The motto is a medium gray tone, matching the tone of the RZM mark on the reverse (7/33 1940). The blade shows excellent cross grain and only very minor oxidation spots. The most notable blade flaw is at the tip, where there is some textured corrosion/oxidation. We’ve made no attempt to remove the texture, so perhaps someone skilled with these blades may be able to remove it completely. We’ll leave that up to the buyer.
