Hello fellow by definition the early SA Dagger usually have their marking GAU in the back of your bottom trim, my question is, was there some early SA Dagger that were not marked on his garrisons? My question is because I saw this early SA Dagger with manufacturing "Hugo Köller, Solingen" without this tagging GAU and I wonder if that combination is also correct, what you think?

NO, the dagger is NOT correct.

It has an RZM (later) scabbard and what looks like RZM crossguards and grip, but an early blade.

PARTS Dagger. Do not buy.

Most early SA daggers have Gau marks. Some do not. No-one knows for certain why.

Regards,
Dave

Thanks Dave for your reply, luckily before taking any decision I commend your judgment, and this Dagger input already brought me these doubts.

FYI: it actually is NOT the "Gau" mark (despite what many collectors call it). It is SA Group marking and it is something different than NSDAP Gau. Sometimes the "Gau" and SA-Gruppe matches in name, but not always.

And the dagger is a parts dagger, so don't buy.
