Heer Standard Dagger

Hello Gents,

another dagger has come to my attention.

A 1935? Heer dagger with hanging apparatus.

The eagles head should be in more detail, shoudn't it? or is it possible that these can be worn and therefore not showing details?

Also the maker mark...it sets off alarm bells too!

Pics aren't the best, but all i have to go on for the moment.

Thanks for your help!

Regards

Paul

Holler,Berlin is a post-war reprodution!The hangers are probably repro as well,plus they're for a Luft dagger.Heers have round,not square 'thingies'.

It's not uncommon for a real Heer's crossguard eagle to show some wear and loss of detail if it were worn often.

Here's what a Holler trademark should look like.

Thanks Rich!

Yes totally agree the maker mark seemed post war as all the war made ( and before) items were marked with the Solingen.

Also good to know the differences between the Luft and Heer hangers, cheers for that info!

Best regards

Hi Rich,

Ok, so there were manufacturers based elsewhere that made daggers, like the SS, the SA, and the various other dress daggers, had no idea...i just assumed that Solingen was the "Place" for the best firms, and therefore the only.

Thanks for that info. Its good to learn something new every day! biggrin.gif
