    The attached pictures are of an unknown dagger, that suggests the style of RAD daggers. It was aquired along with a HJ Armband that appears genuine. I'm not so sure about this dagger. I has no idea what the white material insert is in the handle. The eagles are more stylized than others I can compare it to, and the mark appears to be "HOLLER BERLIN" (terrible picture, and if it will help, can be retried), which may suggest an early post-war Spanish knock-off.Trying to identify a daggerTrying to identify a daggerTrying to identify a dagger

    Quite possibly a copy of a government officials dagger. Holler is a known maker of this type of dagger. A better photo of the maker's mark would be helpful in determining if it is.

    Cheap copy as stated above, brushed blade, not a cross grained blade.

    As soon as you said "Berlin" on the makers mark this condemed it as fake.

    Yea, that's what I figured with the Holler mark, Ade. I just wanted to know what it was supposed to be...given it seemed to be a knock-off of something. Thanks guys!
