    Hi Darren, you are getting a bit confused here.

    All you need to an early nickle silver eagle. Don't worry about the makers markings. Actually I am not 100% sure about that eagle, not sure if it is dirt/tarnish or bad finish, but enough to make me pass on it.

    Read up about the production of SA & SS daggers. You can translate the site with Google:

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi all,

    I received a correct nickel eagle in the mail today and, with a lot of patience I applied the eagle successfully to the grip. It was a bit trickier than I anticipated but I think it looks awesome. My only regret is not using gloves during the process since my fingers wiped most of the natural patina from the eagle. It would have been a dead-on match in terms of color otherwise. I'll need to read up on ways to patina nickel and see if I can bring it back the color back.

    What do you guys think (click the link below to my site to see the photos)?

    Thats not a bad result Dyzner, glad it worked out for you, i wouldnt worry too much about the eagle colour ,that should dull down in a few weeks, the natural oils in your fingers removed the thin patination, but they might also help to recolour it in a short time, will pm you about another matter

    Looks ok now. It's hard to see much detail on the site as the photos
    are very small, but glad you were able to fix it..........!
    Regards,
