This early NSKK Dagger by the firm of Ernst Pack & Sohn is in 99% mint state. I never award a 100% rating to a dagger, but if any dagger came close, this would be it. Exterior fittings are nickel, and show a deep patina from decades of exposure to air. Screws are all perfect and unturned. Scabbard is for all intents and purposes, an SS Scabbard, and not only features 100% grey-black anodizing, but exhibits 98% of the original factory lacquer. ONLY light scratches due to the black DRGM marked hanger compromise what is one of the nicest scabbards I have seen. Blade is virtually mint, with ultra-light runner marks. Etch is deep and crisp. Grip is a beautiful figured wood, with a perfectly inset early grip eagle and rune. The price for this dagger may seem high, but when you consider that the scabbard alone is worth more than the price of a standard early SA dagger due to it being useful for upgrading an SS dagger to "mint" (God forbid someone would separate this scabbard from this piece), you have quite a specimen.
