Hi all, I've been searching through this forum also googling and could not find "standard" measures of each component of an authentic SS dagger. I think it would be interesting to gather here those measures.. I would really appreciate.

There was a time when some of the so-called "experts" would tell you that the government purchased personalized Luftwaffe daggers were OK - because it (the Luftwaffe) was in the business of selling the government acceptance marked examples

I had one from 40 years ago with a B. It was before they were accepted as being legit. Like a dope I had the B polished off. 40 years later you can't tell it was ever there.

It would be as acceptable as SSems placed into chained scabbards ...but that would be the fine line difference between what a purist seeks and what is acceptable and allowable. Hard to say Ryan as the SA guards have been encountered on chained examp

Small mounted print. I'm not sure what it's purpose was or why the artist included a olive branch in 1940. Cool initials(?) to the right of the 9.

I like to match the condition of the hangers to the daggers. On Luftwaffe 2nd daggers there are no real earlier type hangers like with Heer daggers, so match away! Best, Kevin.
