Wow! That's a beauty! Congrats!

I've yet to go into the deep studies of degens. May I ask how you can tell that this was produced in 1936?

The silver nickel sword production was from 1935 to 1937.

The portepee has its tag and 431 is the maker while 36 indicates the year of production, and it is the original piece that belong with this sword.

That is how i found out !

Questions for the specialists :

I read a theory saying only the SS Officers that graduated from SS Schools received the degen with runes ... Did the other that graduated from merit have a degen or not ? In case they had one, was it the runeless degen so called candidate ?

Do you have an idea of the number of SS officier degens produced ? And an idea of the number of degens remaining now ?

Best Regards

the Degen is an award, you reveived them with a document given from HH or from the Junkerschule. My personal view the unmarked ones are from the Junkerschulen. I got one like you in a known group and Degen was from Tölz only with his SS number on the blade.
