    Reproduction dagger all of it.
    dead giveaway if one studies these 2nd Model daggers is the stamped producers logo.
    Holler was widely used as a reproduction logo.
    The pommel and overall fake aging also contribute to being repro.
    Dont waste your time or money.

    Just my two cents as these aren't my forte', shouldn't there be better definition of the three acorns on the ball and shouldn't the tips of the leaves be pointing up towards the pommel ball ? The ball looks worn and lacks detail IMO.. Let's wait for others to add their opinions.. G

    Hi John

    As Larry already stated reproduction all over..
    And the guy who's selling it he almost always only sells reproduction stuff...

    The reverse side of the crossguard is recessed deeper than authentic examples.
