Awesome NPEA Leader chained dagger in perfect condition! The National Political Educational Institute (Nationalpolitische Erziehungsanstalt) was an SS-run organization established for the purpose of training future leaders for the Reich. A number of NPEA schools were set-up throughout Germany and many of its occupied countries, with most leaders and instructors coming from the SS. This dagger we offer for sale is a near mint chained NPEA Leader dagger produced by Eickhorn and was worn by instructors and leaders of the NPEA. The dagger itself had the National eagle in the grip and the scabbard is olive drab, having three nickel plated mounts on it. The upper and center scabbard mounts carry a chain hanger. The blade is etched with the motto of the NPEA, Mehr Sein als Scheinen or "Be more than You Appear". Blade and nickel parts are free from oxid or corrosion and scabbard still has all the olive paint with no scratches nor damage to it. These are amongst the scarcest daggers in the III Reich militaria and finding one in this condition is very uncommon.
