Third Reich Heer officer's dagger, 10 in. blade, 14.5 in. overall, with an orange celluloid-covered wood grip, wire taught, and capped by a circular pommel with oak leaf motifs. The cross guard depicts a national eagle with spread wings, with scrollwork at the ends of the quillions. The detail on the fitting remains very good. The nickel-finish blade bears the maker's mark of F.W. Holler company of Solingen, and the blade shows only the most minor running marks near the tip. A portapee of braided silver cord is attached at the grip. The metal scabbard is fully pebbled, with an oak leaf pattern on the hanger bands. It is straight and bears no dents, dings, or other damage. The hangers are faced with silver wire and continue the oak leaf motif on the buckles; they show wear from use, with minor oxidation to the metal fittings. Fine condition.

Shipments are sent via FedEx and DHL (for most overseas shipments) or FedEx Ground at the auctioneer's option. Due to complications from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we will ship with USPS Priority Mail only if the buyer submits their request to us in writing and accepts responsibility for delayed shipments. Signature is always required, unless other arrangements are made. Handling and shipping charges will be added to the invoice in one entry. Buyers should be aware that large, framed, fragile or odd shaped items can incur substantial shipping and packing charges. International shipments are invoiced by DIMENSIONAL weight, not the item weight. Please contact us for an estimate before bidding NOTE: Large, heavy or bulky items may not be shipped by the auctioneer - arrangements for shipping of these items via a third-party shipper may be arranged through the auction house. Customers who supply their own courier account number will still be charged a handling fee. Please allow 2-3 weeks for shipments after receipt of payment due to the high volume of packages being shipped.
