Very sought-after, dagger of the Third Reich in a good condition

Country: Germany
Type: Dagger
Period: 20th - mid (WW II)
Condition: Good

German Reichsbahn - Water Protection Police dagger, 1938 model for commanders.

Classic piece of manufacturing by the Eickhorn company, Solingen. The mounts on the handle and scabbard are silver-plated non-ferrous metal, black grip. Extremely clean blade in a superb condition, labelled with the manufacturer ‘Original Eickhorn Solingen’, the typical crossgrain is 100% preserved. The scabbard isn’t buckled and is without dents but there are a few places on the iron scabbard where there is minor blistering of rust beneath the silver plating. The handle fittings are in a good condition, the silver plating for the most part is in a good condition, in the indentations of all fittings and the dagger scabbard, it is heavily patinated/dark. The black plastic grip is in a lovely condition with signs of wear. The pommel/swastika has pronounced signs of wear. The dagger is in a used, rare but overall very nice condition.

The buyer receives with the dagger an analysis report (see photo examples of the cover and several pages of this report at the end of the photos of the lot).

During the Third Reich, the German Reichsbahn had several railway ferries which ran between Germany and Denmark. The few railway protection commanders serving on these ships wore this dagger along with a dark blue uniform similar to the Navy. This is certainly one of the rarest daggers of the 3rd Reich.

    The shipment was transported back and forth by the shipping company within Germany for a very long time. This is visible in the tracking of the shipment. Unfortunately, as a shipper, I cannot accelerate the transport in any way. Thank you for the evaluation of the shipping rather than the lot rate. so i want to stay friendly? Thank you to Spain and to DHL Deutschland! What a twisted world with to many twisted people like this... ich war immer freundlich und habe mich sogar bei DHL beschwert, weiterhin habe ich dem Käufer permanent geantwortet und den Sendungsstatus den er nicht abfragen konnte immer wieder mitgeteilt. das hätte ich alles nicht müssen! Und dafür ist man eben unfreundlich.... alles klar...

    Falsche Angaben in der Angebotsbeschreibung. Aggressiv und unehrlich. Zu viel bezahlten Versand erst nach Druck ein Monat später zurücküberwiesen. Obacht! Sehr schlechte Erfahrung.

    Ich habe keine falschen Angaben gemacht und das vorliegende Stück lediglich beschrieben und diese Beschreibung mit sehr guten Bildern unterlegt. Ich habe die minimale in Resten vorhandene Tauschierung als golden aussehend wahrgenommen, Käuffer meint es wäre Silber. Das ist doch nicht als falsche Angabe zu bewerten, das Stück ist 1,5 mm gross auf einer rostigen Klinge! Vielleicht hätte ich gar nichts dazu schreiben sollen um es dem Betrachter selbst zu überlassen darüber zu urteilen. Ich gab und gebe mir immer grösste Mühe bestens und Detailreich zu beschreiben und kassiere hier dafür noch eine so schlechte Bewertung :-(. Die Versandkosten sind in der Losbeschreibung angegeben worden und auf die Schweiz aus welcher der Käufer stammt abgestimmt worden woraufhin Catawiki eine Rechnung stellt nach Kauf stellt oder darin aufnimmt. Käufer lässt sich im Nachhinein Los nach Deutschland schicken (ursprünglich Schweiz) um Versandkosten zu sparen. Das ist legitim. Ich habe das Paket eben auf diesen nachträglichen Wunsch des Käufers an eine deutsche Adresse gesandt und keine dreifachen Versandkosten berechnet. Welch ein Schwachsinn der hier vom Käufer geäussert wurde! Ich habe sogar und das gibg von mir aus die Zusage/ Angebot gemacht einen Ausgleich für die dann zu hohen von Catawiki natürlich berechneten Versandkosten zu machen und habe diese Zusage auch eingehalten. Danke für die sachlich unrichtige Bewertung und Aussagen dazu. Schade dass man als Verkäufer hier keine Möglichkeit hat Käufer zu bewerten.

    Het kavel voldeet niet aan de beschrijving. De verkoper weigerde het kavel terug te nemen. Na dat de veilingmeester betaling had geblokkeerd, verzon verkoper schade aan het terug gestuurde kavel.

    omdat de koper blijkbaar alleen het goud moeten kocht en niet naar de kunsthistorische waarde was, liet hij meteen controleren en de stukken hier heeft beschadigd. Nu wil hij het terug te geven. Ik kan begrijpen dat, omdat nu met de schade die de stukken zou ook niet langer hield. Ik had perfect beschreven van de stukken en het aanbod geïllustreerd. ook ik ben een particulier en heb geen weefsels en niet terug te nemen over ook.
