Note: Just 9,900 Ernst Rohm dedication SS daggers were allocated for distribution to authorised recipients. Following the purge of Rohm in 1934, (the legendary 'night of the long knives'), Rohm dedications were ordered removed from all daggers under Himmler's instruction; dedications were either totally or partially erased, consequently, just a handful of SS 'full Rohm' daggers survived the Third Reich-era intact.

Provenance: A document signed by the consigner states how they obtained the dagger in Belgium during 1990.
