WW2 Nazi German Named Diplomat's Dagger,
Carl Eickhorn, Sold.
In virtually mint (Exc++) condition, a rare Carl Eickhorn Solingen
made WW2 German diplomat official's dagger, to named official, "Von
Guaranteed authentic. In excellent condition, the 25.8 cm blade
with "Carl Eickhorn Solingen" and squirrel holding sword
trademark is near mint. Everything very, very good. The sheath a
little aged; should clean up if required. The photos make the mother
of pearl type grips look a little more orange than they actually
are (the grips are renowned for aging orange); one grip is actually
nearly original pearl white. The sheath is engraved on side to the
original owner, "Von Altern"; I have no doubt this man
is researchable. And yes, I 100% guarantee this dagger is authentic.
Look, unnamed, less collectible Alcoso made daggers that are nowhere
near the condition of this one sell for $16000+ in the USA. This
is better than the ones we have seen anywhere else. It is therefore
worth every penny of £xxxx (too late, now sold - original
sales price revealed for small fee). Full sized / additional photos
available upon request. Item reference number is A92 (468).
