Original WW2 German Red Cross Leaders Dagger with potapee and correct hangers.
This Red Cross Leaders Dagger is a really great example of a scarce type of dagger, in excellent condition overall. The blade on this one remains fairly bright, with a full original tip, and no dings or damage; these is some light, even graying in spots here and there, visible in the photos. The hilt is gorgeous, with the hilt fittings retaining nearly all of the original finish and detail, and only a slight age patina. The eye-catching bright orange grip is complete and undamaged, with no chips, and only a few minor darker spots from age and wear. The color of the grip contrasts nicely with the original silver finish of the crossguard and pommel. The original leather washer remains present under the crossguard. This Red Cross Leaders Dagger is complete with its original scabbard, which is straight and dent free, and retains nearly all of the original finish, with bright original luster. The screws on the scabbard throat show no signs of any tampering. The blade ricasso is unmarked, which is not at all unusual for these. This is a very attractive example of the Red Cross Leaders Dagger.
