I have been wondering for some time the meaning and origin of the dagger/anchor logo atop the toggles of Krieghoff lugers. Where else do they appear, besides the cover (?) of Gibson's book, on some loading tools (fakes?) and perhaps some holsters (?genuine?). Does the logo appear on Krieghoff made machine guns? Would appreciate thoughts, opinions, etc. from our learned collegues on the Forum. Was it taken from the Krieghoff family coat of arms?

A related question also comes to mind from the above. That is, why was Krieghoff allowed to use their regular anchor/dagger logo during the build up for WW2 (and during the war) while Mauser was using S/42, 42 and byf? Were they "exempted" by their close relation to Hermann Goring, or didn't they think any of their aircraft were going to be shot down over enemy territory? Appreciate any thoughts.
