Mac, Looks very correct for a later Spitzer. You are right this is a Generic "A" guard, I like the scabbard type too.. often seen with this double screw scabbard with hand worked bands. Kevin.
It is not the size of a Collection in History that matters......Its the size of your Passion for it!!

That's a fine looking Heer dagger Scott.
glad Kevin analysed this one course im not into the generic ones, so i cant be of any help.
Im crazy about the early types, especially the Slant grip types
Immaculate grip and crossgrain blade to top it. The detailing to the eagle on the guard and the sheath fittings make this one excellent Spitzer. No red flags flying on this beauty.
