This Red Cross Officer's Dagger is in very nice overall condition. The hilt fittings have excellent dull nickel plating. The pommel is still nice and crisp throughout its edges and the cover screw appears to have been out maybe once or twice but there is no burring of the grooves. The cross-guard is an excellent depiction with its oval disks on each side. The reverse disk is plain and the obverse disk features a half closed-winged eagle clutching a cross in his talons. There is a raised out mobile swastika on the bird’s chest. The grip is a fine deep orange color being just the slightest bit lighter on the reverse. This grip is in perfect condition, yet a little loose.
The scabbard has good nickel finish throughout. This scabbard is the style that has the more rounded carrying bands. The plating is very good throughout having a little bit of age noticeable on the center obverse panel but it is really nothing. The rest of the pebbling is still nice and crisp and has 95% plating. The throat is retained by two nickel dome head side screws.
The blade is nice and bright throughout. It appears to have all of its graining in the surfaces with a needlelike tip. The ricasso has been nickel-plated in the normal way. This blade remains in a very good state having only the normal runner marks on the ricasso area. Some pitting towards the tip. The blade is unmarked. This blade is protected by an in place black leather buffer.
