Early Hitler Youth Dagger with Motto by Anton Wingen Jr-Sound example with nickel-silver hilt fitting which are 100% intact. The obverse black checkered grip plate along with the HJ enamel diamond grip insert are excellent. The reverse grip plate has an age crack in the center which is hardly noticeable but needs to get mentioned. The blade has been sharpened on the edge (very typical and done by the HJ kid I am sure) The motto is very light and difficult to see but this is also typical of this maker. The reverse of the blade has the distinctive logo for the firm of Anton Wingen Jr of Solingen along with GES. GESCHÜTZT which is a sure bet this is a VERY early production piece. The thick brown leather buffer is still present under the crossguard. The scabbard is in excellent shape with the original black enamel paint over 90% intact. The black leather belt loop is also in excellent condition and the snap clip functions correctly. The little black cap for the snap is missing. Overall, very good condition for its age.
