    Actually, the true paper note it's worth generally can be found hanging on the wall in a roll next to a bath tub and a nicely lidded porcelain chair... William

    Not by any means unique or alone. At the time when this dagger was created/remanufactured from various and sundry parts - perhaps 40 (?) years ago it was at a time when both fakers and many collectors were not as well versed in fakes and fakery as now. And it most likely sold for a considerable premium over standard daggers.

    That the dagger has "problems" is an understatement. But if I had to chose just one as an illustration of some of what is wrong with it. That would be the upper crossguard. Which is a sculpted pot metal (zinc) part which looks like it has been silver plated (with some of the plating now falling off). Also having a very serious fracture breaking it in two probably from one of times that it was over-torqued in reassembly. Opps!! FP

    I am fairly sure it is a fake too.

    I would "not touch one of these with a barge pole" as we used to say here in England many years ago.

    As "FP" eludes, many of these daggers lurk in old collections and as older collectors sell up or die off, I suspect we will start to see them surface again. The late 1960's and early 70's were the hey day of fantasy design daggers made from original parts. Much original material was ruined by people out to make a fast buck.

    Cheers, Ade.

    If one looks closely at the inscription, it is not perfectly straight. This alone would be enough of a bad sign for me.
