This example has a unique gun metal patina hard to explain but very pleasing and different. The crossguard at first look appears to have little hand enhancement but upon looking closer its there just buried under a heavy silver plate and patina. Certainly it has less then the other two examples note the head does not have the punched eye really sets this guard apart as we get a better glimpse of what the base guard would look like. This dagger also has the tiny domed screws my guess these would be earlier then the larger flat head screws. Interesting the scabbard bands are running in opposite directions you see this from time to time while these companies strived for perfection at times these things slipped by.
