Clearly one of the corps daggers, Aero Corps (doubtful), or autocorps.

I could use the scabbard if available.

Given the position of the brads from the missing emblem on the cross guard I would say this is an Auto Corps dagger. Clearly the arms of the open crown pommel have been filed off. Rare dagger nonetheless.

definitely an Auto Club Dagger, and it would fit perfectly in my Auto Club collection I got from Diehl before he passed away.

Mike,

I wondered what had happened to Vic's collection. How many individual daggers did you acquire?

If I remember correctly, Vic had a large cache of Auto/Aero daggers years back, sold them & then started a new collection maybe 10 years back.
