The SA dagger was originally produced in vast quantities by 123 different cottage makers. Initially these daggers were made with the highest quality, being produced out of hand-fitted nickel fittings, hardwood grips and brown anodized or \"blued\" scabbards. The blades were etched, \"Alles fur Deutschland\" (\"All for Germany\"). Pre-1935 SA daggers were stamped with the SA group stamp to the reverse of the lower crossguard. An Early Model 1933 Sturmabteilung Dienstdolch by August Rother, Solingen. The SA gruppe mark is \'No\' for District Nordsee. Visible slight damage to the handle. A great dagger to add to your collection!
