A wonderful, completely matching, early, slant-grip Army Dagger by Spitzer with wonderful patina! What more could you ask for? The blade on this one has very minor age. The large oval early acid etched maker mark is dark, crisp and beautifully executed! The crossgrain is easily visible and stunning as you shine it in the light! The crossguard is loose and this dagger could use the pommel given a 1/2 twist to snug it up. Unfortunately the pommel is frozen and I will not force it. The blade rates an easy Exc++. The pebbled leather buffer pad continues to remain intact. The steel based, nickel silver plated scabbard provides wonderful detail with the random pebbling throughout and hand enhanced oak leaf and acorn bands! It shows period wear and some bumps. The original throat retaining screws remains intact. The early hand enhanced eagle crossguard provides beautiful details throughout the eagle’s head, wings, wreath, beak and chest. The pommel and ferrule are also beautifully detailed with hand enhancing and proud oak leaves and acorns. The crossguard, scabbard and pommel all match in color, plating and patina. The warm orange, slant trylon grip on this one looks beautiful! It is perfect being 100% damage free! Truly some great features on this Army Dagger! Add it to your collection today and feel proud!
