This one just came out of a Vets home. This guy must have kept it on his wall and played a lot of cards in the room with his buddies! Scabbard has been painted in the period,I don't believe the Vet messed with it by the looks of the rest of the dagger. Very interesting "chocolate look" to paint. Hanger was on it too, DIRTY to match with strange replaced leather...Hilt and scabbard have all the TIGHT fits,as can be seen by the lack of patina on the scabbard throat and crossguard where they meet. Well hope you like it! Let me know what you think......
