    I am no expert but, I would say, save your money. I don't like the details or the markings on the hilt.

    The eagle appears to be smirking. If anyone buys this dagger the seller will be smirking. If it were really a RAD dagger there should be a RAD emblem on the hilt. I see no evidence of this. I will leave this one alone.

    This one is for sale in the classifieds, it is for an EM but, I would not expect any other marking than this one has. Officer's probably had even less markings.

    Dont just walk, Run from it!
    Bad bad Fake, rzm code on the crossguard, LMAO
    My Advice:
    First look at a few originals, take the " Lakeside Traders" or "Wittmann" sites how they look like.
    At least take a site who has a good name, don't use Snyders treasure, hahhahaa
    or you might come accross this dagger again
    Then post Pics and no links.
    This is the dagger your link refers to:

    Cheers Ger
