Love these pieces truly the epitome of the craft. The polished maker marked blade is an Exc++ example with just the smallest amount of age and nice crossgraining. The reverse proudly displays an early variation crisply etched Alcoso maker mark. The thin blue pebbled leather blade buffer is in place. Classic Alcoso fittings are all silver washed and patina is nice and dark. The plating is good with some evidence of normal period wear. This thing is perfectly fit together. The elegant mother of pearl grip plates are crack and chip-free. The pommel screw sits perfectly flush to the eagle head, it has been turned at some point but not for a long time. The dent-free silver plated scabbard is set off by well detailed bands. Plating is 100%. The throat is retained by two unturned screws. Included is a nice Exc++ set of original hangers with wear and age matching the dagger. Overall this is a textbook beauty that wonderfully shows off hand fitted German craftsmanship!
