    Wait for others to chime in with a second opinion, but as I recall those markings are for a post war dagger put together from peroid parts. I believe they were sold to GI's as souviners.

    Cheers, Robert

    HI John...Robert is correct..there are post war assemblies made for the GIs to take home as souvenirs. This company name is Bolte and Anschutz "B&A". Your dagger is made up of various producer left over war liberation. This Dagger is not worth alot..yet is still a piece of history being made up and presented to the occupying forces as keepsakes. Not much of the authentic edged weapons were left to be found after the first troops came in and liberated all the goodies themselves.

    "B&A" saw an enterprising opportunity and a need by the returning Vets to take home a keepsake. Past Discussions of B&A speaks of this company scrounging around Bombed out factories..or abandoned buildings searching for fittings. I will see if I can find the thread that is on the WRF discussing B&A further Regards Larry
