Gorgeous example of a rare dagger. N.P.E.A. student dagger with bottom crossguard marked N.58 . This is an early number and the "N" indicates the school to be Naumburg/Saale. Students had the option of engraving the school on the upper crossguard and this one is indeed engraved N.P.E.A. Naumburg/Saale. I believe the upper engravings were done upon graduation. The blade is an extremely nice example with very minor age wear and cross graining still showing. The engraved motto "Meht sein als scheinen." translates to "Be more then you appear to be.". Reverse of blade shows maker logo KARL BURGMULLER BERLIN CHARLOTTENBURG. Scabbard has almost complete original olive drab paint remaining. Top notch example of a rare dagger.
