    Is it possible to close up photos of the blade and hallmark. The hanger and chain links for some reason are setting off bells with me. Could just be that they are modern or have been added to try and complete the dagger. The scabbard accents do not match the patina of the blade and hilt. The cracked leather is a nice touch, but that is easily fabricated to give the appearance of false aging.

    To be honest it does not match the appearance of my ballon man Luftwaffe dagger. However it will be interesting to see what others on the board have to say about it.

    Looks like the leather has had extreme exposure to the sun, to which once was dark blue has turned to a burgundy. I do see aluminum fittings and as Cakeater has said,, would there be more Balloonman types with the aluminum fittings, to compare with?...or did they only have the nickel plated types with brass beneath the swaz`s? Regards Larry
