Black wooden handle with inlaid SS roundel and eagle. Minor chipping and a fine stress crack on the reverse. Early nickel fittings. Includes the officer's portepee. Original black anodized steel scabbard with nickel-plated iron fittings (mid-production period). All six screws are present, but the lower two have been replaced. The "ball" has a small dent.
Includes the original iron dagger chain. Chain type "B2". It features SS runes and skulls. "SS" stamped on the back. The "Germanic" knot is fully working. Comes with a leather belt.
