No Maker. A similar example of this pattern dagger appears on page 58 right, of DIRKS of The World by D. Fedurin. The silver-plated hilt fittings show light surface wear with dark age patina to the the undamaged M-1944 conical pommel with five raised ridges and Crossguard in the form of two outward-facing lion heads features a raised Bulgarian crest on the obverse center while the reverse crossguard is unadorned. The white enamel over solid metal grip shows a few tiny nicks to the enamel but, no damage to the swirls of alternating smooth and twisted silver wire wrap. The plain, plated, double-edged blade grades EX+/EX++ with minor surface wear/runner marks and gray shadowing where runners have rested against the blade but, no pitting or nicks to cutting edges, and is complete with a brown leather buffer pad. The blade design is the same as the German Army dagger and is complete with dark brown/black leather buffer pad. The smooth silver-plated scabbard shows light surface wear/age patina matching the hilt fittings and is complete with two, side-mounted, dome-head throat retaining screws. The scabbard is complete with two oak leaf embellished suspension bands and twisted wire rings with an incised oak leaf motif on the shell and a plain lower ball. EX++ (27009) Consignment
