    Default Unusual Navy dagger Medal Plate on Wood

    Here is something you don't see every day. I found this in a local auction and I am wondering what it is? I think it could be some kind of design template that was taken from a factory, but I have no idea. here are some photos, and I think I have identified a similar dagger being represented.

    Whatever it is, it is full size and was used as some kind of stamp.

    These are printing blocks. Images are etched onto copper
    plates, which are then cut and mounted to wood blocks.
    These are inserted into a frame that mounts into
    a printing press.........

    Thank You Steve,

    I figured it was something to that affect. Any chance these are period made? Also what would have these daggers been printed on... a sales catalog?

    Yes, a catalogue or some sort of printed advertising would have
    been made using these blocks. It is pre-WWII, by the subject
    matter - Imperial Kriegsmarine Officer dagger.........

    Thanks Steve, hopefully I can get the printing block before some hillbilly makes a gun rack out of it.

    Hi Corey cool find,, can you show us the under side of the dies,,as I used to do foil stamping and embossing a few years ago. That would say alot if there is a long history to these particular dies. Copper and brass dies are still used today along with magnesium dies...which are more widely used and inexpensive.
