    Hans Frank dagger?

    Hi
    Dear experts
    There is a dagger with H.Frank signet. could it be a personal dagger of Hans Frank? What do you think about this?

    Hans Michael Frank (23 May 1900 – 16 October 1946) was a German politician and lawyer who served as head of the General Government in Poland during the Second World War.

    Looks to me like a crude fake postwar stamping.

          I tend to agree with Erich and Ron, that the name on this dagger grip crossguard is likely a post-war addition, for the reason that all such personalizations were required to appear on the reverse of the piece, not on the obverse as this appears. To it's credit, of course, is that this is an SA Standard Service Dagger and Reichsleiter and Reichsminister Dr, Hans Frank was also an SA-Obergruppenführer...but he still had to obey the regs!

            Could it be that the upper cross guard is on backwards ?

              If the stamping is post war what difference does the positioning of the cross guard make?

                Although anything is possible in this hobby, I would tend to agree with Serge and Ron in saying that the stampings are crude in their appearance and likely postwar done to embellish a generally unremarkable dagger. Essentially they ruined an otherwise untouched item.

                  It could have been done by the vet named H. Frank who captured it. I just don't see anybody going to the effort of stamping Hans Frank on an SA dagger. Ernst Rohm or Viktor Lutze maybe.....Hans Frank no.
