A nice pair of the scarce Naval Officers Administration Service hanging straps for the M.38 dagger. The double lion’s head buckles to the centre both in aluminium, which match exactly with their correct velvet backed strapping. The short strap has the small chain link and hook missing, the longer strap would appear to have lost one of its clips, which has been replaced by a gilded version. A rare set of hanging straps.
A good service used Kriegsmarine officers dagger having an excellent blade by Eickhorn. Standard double central fuller with both sides etched in the standard engraving of fouled anchors and floriated patterns. Celluloid grip undamaged with original grip wire. Gilding slightly dull but all matching to the upper pommel, cross guard and scabbard. One very minor impression to the face side of the scabbard 6cm down from the lower scabbard band.
