An early 1st pattern Luftwaffe dagger with DLV style stapled fittings. The dagger blade is maker marked by SMF and is in bright condition. Dagger and scabbard fittings are the early nickeled type, and have not been cleaned for a long time, judging by their patina. The sunwheel swastikas appear a coppery color. The underside of the crossguard and side of the scabbard upper fitting is engraved with the unit designation: I./Flak Rgt. 12 96, with the 96 possibly indicating the dagger number. The blue leather of the grip and scabbard show some wear to the finish but no tears. Chain hanger is complete and the snap hook is marked with the early RZM designation "UE1" (Uniform Effects). A scarce, early transitional Luftwaffe dagger.
