Early SS Service Dagger to Anton Springer, born 11. June 1922. He visited the SS Junkerschule Braunschweig and served with SS Division "WIKING" and "NORDLAND" on the Eastern Front (Kuban).

Black wooden handle with inserted enamel SS roundel and eagle. Slight chipping around the SS emblem and a fine hairline crack on the reverse. Nickel crossguards. "I" stamped on the lower crossguard.
