    The mixed bag of parts as you say Ned..I feel the same way..what is really noticeable is the lack of quality on the eagle crossguard..especially the pebbling...which is common with most Chinese fakes...the logo looks like a standard engraving job..and the Birds eye..is just a hole.

    Larry-
    If you think my comments are not of use on this thread, please delete this. About ten years ago, this dealer was offering a pair of SA collar tabs from Horst Wessel's unit in Berlin. They claimed they were found in the stock of an old theater in Prague along with others. As they were under $30.00, I bought them to study the construction. They were not well made copies. When they did not come back, they offeredme a dozen additional pair of the rarest of rare SA tabs, which were also fake. Since that time, I have always followed their goods and many fakes have good stories as to how they were found.
    As to this dagger, I agree with the statements of our colleagues who have already posted their thoughts.

    what would scare me away would be the solder job on the scabbard and everything else mentioned........ No way would they tolerate such poor workmanship like that,IMO
    No wonder they did not pick this one for the final design !!

    Good lord....Sorry,but the price???
