    Well Ronnie, the missing screw is in fact good news I am now certain it is an early WKC scabbard which matches the period of the rest of the dagger perfectly!

    Nice catch Ronnie! Super grip on that one, and I agree that the scabbard looks like an early WKC type, no telling how it came to be with this dagger, during the period as a replacement or a victim of the old Vet switch when they brought home more than one Heer..anyways, congrats! Kevin.

    Yes, your dagger hanger are brass made, but I'm a bit surprising, as to your hanger sliding piece for is deluxe dagger hanger, not usual one.
    I put an example of my brass sliding piece, for non - deluxe hanger.

    Thanks again guys Vedran there is a joint at the back of the slider but it has been "blended in" so you can hardly see any joint it looks like a solid piece, I will take a better pic later and post it up for you to see, thanks for the pic of your hangers,
    cheers Ronnie

    Ronnie i not see any connection. (I apologize if I'm wrong, the whole day I was at work looking in computer, so I baked my eyes.)
    Maybe sliding piece in your hanger are made from one piece?
    Very interesting, thanks for the photos.
