A local gun store has this sa dagger for sale for $1,000. Told me I could have it for $450. What do you think of it. Believe it's a rare maker.

Has Ns on cross guard and a decent scabbard with round ball.

It looks fine and 450 is a very good price

As long as the scabbard is in decent condition, $450 is not a bad price for this dagger

The scabbard is missing a screw but no dents. Paint has normal crazing. Need to go get it Monday. Thanks for the replies. Regards Walter

Returned to the gun shop today and was able to purchase the dagger. I wish it better conditioned but I think it's a good example. He let me have it for $400.00. Regards Walter

Agree. Bismark is a cool logo and you don't see them that often.
