The wood fit, is actually pretty good. It looks to have some very minor small shrinkage, but nothing for concern. The blade has good crossgrain to it and the sheath looks to be in decent dent free shape as well-even the ball tip. I'm not seeing any plating flake or lifting. The etch is nice and dark. Overall, it's a nice condition Arthur Evertz later SA and definitely worth collecting. (The button is fine, by the way) Evertz is not a super common maker, but not exactly rare either. Value-wise? Paul Hogle has one for $795, but it has a hanger with it. If I Had to take a shot at the price, I'd probably be thinking in the range of, maybe, between $5-600 max if you bought it from a Dealer.

Thanks a lot for your help...i ll make an offer between this range of price...:-))
Hi Luca.. I agree with William..and I myself would consider it near mint. meaning almost perfect..except for those small imperfections you are seeing..thats what brought it down to Near Mint. Still a great conditioned Late RZM Dagger.
It is not the size of a Collection in History that matters......Its the size of your Passion for it!!
