    Hi All,

    Iíve just come across a very nice Postal Dagger...... but to me it really looks like the chain has been tampered with ...... The Dealer does mention that the chain is 100% correct, and states this sort of clip is correct for the dagger..... Iíve looked at loads of Postchutz and never seen before.

    Notice the Suspect one has a slotted hole and the connecting rings have been opened and some time. The dagger couldnít hang correctly with slotted holes surely!!

    I have my doubts .... see comparison pictures.

    There is the kicker and in that sentence the dealer uses " A " truth to cover his item.
    It is true that the chain is correct and this "Sort " of ( type , model, pattern etc .) ...is correct for this dagger. Yes ..this is true also ....but separately and not for this dagger shown.

    Are there any more photos you can post of this dagger other than the chain?
    Bill Shea who sells this dagger is a Gentleman and very reputable ..yet sometimes oversights can be made and he may have received this dagger as is in the condition it is being posted for.

    Wait for other thoughts on this chain and clip ...but for me I like all consistent fittings. I rather be a purist and wait a little while longer for a whole example to come along that fits my needs ( to each their own ) ...and in this day and age of whats happening in this hobby it is wise to be patient.

    Hi Larry
    Yes the dagger is on the Ruptured Duck Web-Site ( along with 2 other Postal Daggers )
    I agree the Chains are correct, not sure about the last 2 connectors or the clip though!
    The rest of the dagger looks good as far as Iím concerned.
    However like you said, this clip is not original to this dagger.
    I have dealt with Bill and found him to be honest, and I shouldnít think he was trying to con anyone at all, but the chains have been tampered with, and the clip is not correct in my opinion.
    Try convincing a Dealer in a few years time that itís correct if ever you wanted to part exchange it for an upgrade!!
    Iím the same as you Iíd rather wait until a 100% correct one comes along before considering a purchase.

    P.s I posted a RAD Leaders a few weeks ago ... I was hoping youíd comment as your views are always valued.

    Kind Regards

    Buying an expensive dagger like that, would imo result in a need of a textbook example.
    This clip has been replaced, thats pretty clear.
    Buying and selling or upgrading in the future is so much easier with textbook daggers...

    The colour and patina clearly show the clip is not original to the chain.

    Thanks Anderson
    Even the final connectors to the clip have been prised open at some stage ... thatís obvious.
    But being sold at top book price.
