Hello John, what sort of opinions are you seeking? because in my opinion there are many concerns I have with the item, grip blade (heavily polished) scabbard plated fittings and nickel cross guards, the pictures are not the best, but it certainly is not a one looker

I agree with john B, this dagger has some issues. The Blade is heavily polished,and the scabbard has an poor repaint behind but i think the fittings are nickel silver not plated so it could be together. pics are not so good but the fit looks fairly OK. Dont like this dagger I think you can find a better one. but thats my opinion.
Lower guard is not a Pack guard..and also minus the SS district stamping.
I agree with the gents here..over polished and worked on.
The vertical hanger snap clip is 100% fake..someone made this hanger. see below and compare details why. Parts dagger.
It is not the size of a Collection in History that matters......Its the size of your Passion for it!!

It's a rebuild put together of both period and postwar parts. Not worth more than a curio. Sorry...

Thanks again everybody.
