this is what I believe to be a authenic German SS dagger. has "ALLES FUR DEUTCHLAND" etched one one side and makers mark of Thomas Wielputz on other. handle and logos seem right. the leather hanger is missing and scabbard has 2 dents but knife slides in properly. handle is in good condition with 2 chips near blade guard. there is a letter "P" on guard that I havent been able to authinicate.
Reason I am asking for Ballpark value is this has been offered to me at what I feel is a very good price. picture below is from this site..http://www.quanonline.com/military/m...sa_dagger.html
if below is example of excellent than the one offered would be fair.
As I get Older, I have come to understand why our Founding Fathers chose our countrys motto to be "IN GOD WE TRUST", somehow they knew in the future WE would come to the point that WE COULD NO LONGER TRUST THE ONES WHO RUN IT!
