Ron,

Some guys think that that there were period repaints done as the original bluing wore off the scabbard. Have you ever seen this ?

I understand the concept and it MIGHT be possible, but I have never encountered this with any of the vet pruchased early political daggers that I have found in 53 years of veteran buying.

Ron - Just for clarity, I'm not sure how you define "early" nickel silver. Is there "late" nickel silver? Or is it as simple as:

Nickel silver parts = scabbard with chemical finish

Plated parts = scabbard with painted finish

Thanks, Dan

I have encountered some nickel silver parts (mainly hilt parts with nickel silver grip eagle) on some transitional SAs. This is why I use the term early nickel silver with SAs.

but alas i agree with ron this dagger we are looking at in this thread should not have a painted scabbarb. Now to the promblem of painting a scabbarb .I have messed around with diffrent blueing and browning on metal trying to match orignal. and i gotta say the stuff is very durable .now after 60 plus years it gets to looking bad but in the short term of the war years i think that it would have held up fine im sure there were some repaints that would be a mistake to say there was'nt. But I think the gi's did more than the orginal if you look at the sa you would think dang this thing is rusted and go ahead and paint. Yes you would be right because the browing process is acutal rusting of the metal .but by very diffrent process that just throwing out in the rain.So my whole point is a early bagged Rohm would not have a paonted scabbarb by any means that i can think of.BY the way I have not matched the sa color yet and this after 70 plus test
