    Default Heer Dagger Alcoso

    Hey everyone. The seller of this dagger and I have come to an agreement for me to purchase this army dagger. I just told him I was going to take a day to do a little homework. Any red flags here? This one isn't perfect but the blade hasn't been sharpened or damaged. The handle looks pretty great as well. Do you think the scabbard could clean up? Thank you!Name:  image.jpg

    Hi Naptime..you wisely Chose well..in telling the seller you needed a day to research..and bringing it here..and within a day you will recieve the answers you need. IMO it appears to be Ok. The ferrule ring border closest to the crossguard for some reason looks a little bent up..and gives me the impression that the dagger was opened..to add or trade off a part. That border should be straight and flush.especially in that position of where its at. The grip looks brand spanking new..which may explain..my thoughts on the ferrule ring...but yet that grip as new as it is..does not match the condition of the rest of the dagger. The crossguard appears authentic..but not sure if it belongs.....The rest of the details..wait to hear from the Heer gents. They can see through walls when it comes to these dagger types. Regards Larry

    Is the portepee included or not? Pictures show it with and without, and i'd want it in with the agreed price.

    Thank you for the information. Yes, the portepee is included although it's not in great shape. Probably adds another $40-50 value but is part of the deal.

    I like the pommel and crossguard typical Alcoso. Now the scabbard looks out of place to me I would like to see double flat head screws on this vintage - scabbard is a later type looks to be Eickhorn or a generic type and from my recollection not a type Alcoso used based on the scabbard bands .

    Tom what are your thoughts on Ferrule ring..being a little mishaped on the bottom?

    I can't tell if the ferrule is Bent or if it's simply the patina spotting that makes it Look like it is. I also doubt that the sheath will clean up and would not recommend it. The grip looking new is also a concern of mine as well. It may well just be a happy coincidence, but I wouldn't bet the bank on it. It looks to me like a put together mis-match. Personally, I get the impression that this Alcoso has been too seriously messed with and I would pass on it.

    I agree with Tom, that Generic scabbard looks out of place.
