Description

This Helbig produced NSKK dagger has all of the normal characteristics we see with this producer. The Helbig daggers were the only examples to be equipped with steel cross-guards having chromed surfaces. The same was true of the scabbard mounts. The steel cross-guards were only produced by the Helbig firm.

The cross-guards, despite their chrome finish, have just a little corrosion and is hardly disturbing the overall piece.

The grip is a fine mahogany type and it shows some usage but is still in good condition with a minor crack at the reverse top. The SA runes button is nicely placed. The enamel is still in excellent condition. The nickel grip eagle is the style with "beak pointing upwards slightly". This eagle shows only modest wear to the surfaces but the beak, eye, breast feathering, wing feathering, talons, wreath and mobile swastika are still in good condition. It is also interesting to note that the grip eagles on Helbig daggers are placed higher on the grip than the norm. As we know grip eagles were to be placed just below the center line of the bulbous portion of the grip, not in the center.

The scabbard shell is straight throughout. This shell has good black paint showing a few scratches here and there but it still has its original brightness and rates at about 98%. The chrome plated scabbard mounts are in excellent condition to include the lower ball. These mounts also have matching patination. The mounts are secured by dome head steel screws which are unturned. The blade of this example remains in a bright condition. As is typical of the Helbig firm the etching to the SA motto is extremely light. Despite this the motto still remains quite clear. The reverse of the blade is matching lightly etched with a double RZM circle having a shaded center. Below the circle is the code, "M 7/70". It is also interesting to note that the shoulder to cross-guard contour fit is not very good but again this is yet another Helbig trait.

Comes with black belt hanger and the actual hanger itself marked RZM M 5/71 OLC.
