    Default dagger identification #5.. help please?

    Hi all,

    Our family has a collection of items from WWII, brought back by my husband's father. There are about several items in the collection ranging from daggers to rifles and pistols to banners and hats/helmets. Unfortunately, my husband's father has passed away and we have very little information about the items.

    Would you be able to help identify and value the items? Ideally, we would like to sell them and to release them back into the collector's world.

    Here is the fifth dagger:

    Hi Beth welcome to the forum,, you came to the right place for dagger identification. This one is an Army officer dagger. in this condition hard to say my guess about $500-600. There are alot of great people here on this forum that will lend a helping hand. Regards Larry

    Hi Beth, welcome to the forum!

    The info given on all the daggers you have shown so far is correct.

    Please don't be tempted to clean any of these. It will de-value them.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Im not complety sure but that looks like an early Type A slant grip gents! , if i see it right it has the typical steep angle and smaller swirls compared to later ones.
    if so then the price could be without any doubt be a lot higher.
    Guys take a good look please.....

    Cheers,
    Ger

    Hi Larry, thank you for the identification and valuation. It's fascinating to read through some of these threads. I had no idea there were so many people interested in these kinds of things!

    Hi Adrian, thank you for the welcome and I promise not to clean the daggers. I'm trying to treat them as respectfully as I can until I can get them into the right hands.

    Hi Ger, thanks for taking a closer look. Need any more photos?

    Hi Beth, the best venue to sell these daggers would be in the forum classified ads.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Beth,

    can you take a picture of the grip in vertical position?
    Thats important to see what the angle of the swirls are.
    Picture it like the one below, which has a normal late war grip.
    Yours swirls should have a steeper angle as this one below.
    I cant determine it when its not shown vertical.

    Cheers Ger
