    Numbered SS daggers.

    Please anyone who has a numbered SS dagger please post some pics and details of the original owners and their careers, it would be interesting to see the daggers and also the research on who originally owned them, may be some high ranking officer daggers among our collections here.

    Thanks I will post my pic as soon as I can this damned camera working.

        My other numbered and researched dagger is this SS 1933 pattern.

        This was originally owned by SS Hauptsturmfuhrer Hans Eichemeyer. Born on June 23rd 1908. His SS number was "262034". He was a pre war member of the SS. He was commisioned in 1939. He was a staff Officer with V SS Freiwilligen Gebirgs Korps serving in Bosnia.

        Cheers, Ade.

          Neatly engraved SS number.

          I have yet to obtain his full service file, but I will be doing that. (Now done!)

          These are my only named daggers, so I look forwards to seeing more added here.

          Cheers, Ade.

            This could be a great thread! Ade, you got some really cool stuff. Unfortunately my only identified item is an SS Honor Ring so I don't have anything to contribute but I'm looking forward to see what shows up.

              I have one for sale on the E-stand right now http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru...d.php?t=187958. The number on the scabbard is attributed to a Fritz Michiels, listed in the 1938 Dienstaltersliste. Don't know anything beyond that right now...

                Back to the top, I don't want to see this thread die...

                Adrian... the background on your dagger is fantastic and that's to say the least.


                  Found the pic and some info on the owner of my dagger.

                  If anyone has a copy of the Dienstalterliste containing a listing of these awards he won could they please forward me a copy of it as I have lost my copy, I would be most grateful.

                    Thats a great career and a pretty low number, Adam.

                    I only have one numbered SS, Its the highest number I know of. Unfortunatly I cant identify the SS man yet.

                          Very nice Daggers guys. I do have a Boker Ground Rohm with the number 4893 not stamped, but more like he carved the # in by hand. Roman numeral 1 on back crossguard. Will try to get pics later on today. If anyone can find that number it would be greatly appreciated. And who ever is selling that one on estand, forget the name sorry, I think is under priced IMO. Someone should grab that quick for that price!
                          ps: HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!


                            Unfortunately 4893 is not in the Key.


                              Thats odd I'd have thought such a low number would have been a better chance of being on the list than a high number.

                              Come on guys lets keep these daggers coming.
