    Default Heer Dagger Help

    Hey guys, I found a guy who had this dagger for sale and I was hoping to pick it up. Can anyone perhaps give it a look over and let me know if it is the real deal. I have never bought one before so I am brand new to daggers. He said the handle was a little sun discolored on one side from being in a display forever. He also said that someone somewhere must have taken the handle off and out it on incorrectly causing the slight damage as shown. He was asking $550 or a trade on one of my Luftwaffe helmets and I wouldn't know if that was a fair asking price or if I am perhaps being taken. Any opinions would be appreciated.

    Looks real to me , but the broken handle will effect the value greatly . The dagger knot is trying to hide the problem if you asked me . I'd check dealers for what a broken handle Army is going for these days . Good luck

    $550 is way too much for a dagger in this condition. Not only is the grip badly dammaged. The blade has also seen better days. Could be the pictures but I don't see any crossgrain at all. Also the silvering on the back of the crossguard is almost completely gone. If you have some patience you can get a really nice army dagger for the amount he is asking.

    Regards

    Thanks guys, I'll keep looking. These don't seem to be very scarce. Wasn't really looking for one per say but it came up in another conversation so thought it would be a nice addition.
