Original WWII German Army Dagger, Heeres Offiziersdolch, ground find

R3,000.00

German WWII Army dagger, Heeres Offiziersdolch with scabbard. I found this one some years back in a forest while looking for cave bear fossils. We had set up camp in a narrow creek in a very remote area (sorry, no information on the location other than that it was in Western Europe). While strolling down the little stream looking for firewood I saw a tiny part of the dagger's handle sticking out of the ground on the other side of the stream. Had it not been for the heavy rainfalls at the time I am sure it would not have been exposed. In the very wet, muddy soil going was tough and we dug up some more small items, a pocket knife and a belt buckle, but there was no other weapons or helmet that we could find, nor were there any human remains. Back home I only got rid of the mud, I wanted to preserve it in the most original way possible. On one of the photos you can actually see remains of the mud/soil under the crossguard. This piece has a lot of soul, I love it when an object has a story to tell, this one has seen it all! As always, please take a close look at all the pictures since they form an important part of my description.
