Anyone?? Variant or 1st to 2nd type grip change over? Both were on Weyersberg leaders.

Hello Bret Van Sant, I am not THE specialist for RLB daggers but personally I always did avoid RLB daggers with this fat, not well executed grip badge. Imho it is a fake badge but let as hear what others have to say.
Regards,

Here is a repo with a similar fat swazi. Slightly different shape but same concept. Mine is definitely a reproduction.

I agree with Wotan. I’ve always regarded the thicker swazs are very suspect and likely repro emblems.
