8/6/20 - This is a very rare nazi government official's dagger. This Alcoso dagger shows superb craftsmanship throughout starting with the sharp edged pommel fitting perfectly around the simulated mother of pearl grip plates and on to the government eagle. The metal areas of the handle show some oxidation / patina and loss of plating on the finish. the blade however is as mint as they come. Beautiful and clean with cross grain showing and a perfect tip. The original leather stopper is in tact. Maker stamped by Alcoso. The scabbard is free of dents, but there is dark discoloration throughout. Very rare dagger is excellent+ condition.
