A very nice example of the second model enlisted ranks dagger for the Air Raid Protection Service, the Reichsluftschutzbund, or RLB. The blade is quite bright, with some relatively minor spots, but with visible crossgrain. The blade bears the knight helmet logo of the firm of WKC. The leather washer is in place at the top of the blade. The dark wood grip is without cracks or chips, as is the enamel swastika on the RLB grip insignia. The plating on the pommel and crossguard is bright and intact. There are some minor scratches and scuffs to the scabbard paint but it is nearly 95% intact. The original leather hanger is present and the belt loop is still attached. A truly nice example of a complete second model RLB enlisted ranks dagger.
