larry c you have a really good point about there being more history behind the early maker marked daggers. I started collecting from both world wars based on my interest in the history and the history behind the items. So, its definitely given me something to think about. Maybe I should do like Mac66 said and save my money for now, and take my time and find the right piece. if anyone knows any more reputable dealers I should take a look at, please let me know. thanks everybody for the advice!!
It is always a solid good idea to buy Quality when it can be done. Even if it is not intended for resale, the early materials and high standards of production will always shine through. A good rule of thumb has always been "Buy as Good as you can Afford". Should the unthinkable ever happen and you need to part with it, you'll be thankful that you did.
