Nice early Eickhorn with unit mark on the crossguard and waffenamt on the throat. A shame about the damage but it still has value.

Andy,

Waffenamt marks are found only on early production DLV daggers and this one is early so I see no issue with it being there.

Question why would have DLV a Army Heereswaffenamt proof? similar to RLB as part of RLM why would have it a Army proof?, only possible are the LW LZA marked blades of Flieger Dolch 1. and 2 modells.
Second what is the swastika stamp? marking of DLV?
E/92 or 96 was not used on Eickhorn production. Could You date the dagger?

Because early Deutscher Luftsportverband was incorporated in Luftwaffe - Wehrmacht as training facility.

From literature DLV was under RLM which was independent of Wehrmacht, so little strange for me found here a HeeresWaA , maybe people have other comparation stamps, strange too that is only on mouthpiece, not on main part blade. b.r.Andy
