Where are all the Bundesmarine dagger pommels?


Recommended Posts

Every try to find a Bundesmarine dagger? I've seen two since starting to collect in the 70's. One at a shop in Minneapolis/St. Paul ($100 and so wish I'd grabbed it!) in the mid 80's and one I managed to snag off Ebay a couple years ago. Sadly that one had the pommel changed out to the WW2 version.

I've always been told that so many of these had that same fate... having the WW2 pommel put in place of the post war Bundesmarine pommel which replaced the swaz with the anchor.

I'd very much like to be able to obtain one of the Bundesmarine pommels to put my dagger back to it's original form. But after years of searching I have yet to find the post war pommel. Plenty of WW2 pommels... real and fake... but no post wars.

So I'm wondering... where in the world have all those post war ones gone to that were removed and replaced with the swaz version?

By the by, if anyone has one they'd be willing to part with please let me know. I'd love to try and work something out on one.

Many thanks!
