Hi wagriff I know what your saying. As you know usually the earlier ones were worn with the short hanger, the later ones with the vertical (hence the straight up and down runes).
Nothing was set in stone, im sure many wore the early style dagger with vertical hangers making the rune angle 'officially' wrong.
Looking at the grip there is no evidence of it ever being bound by a vertical hanger.
sellers asked 1800 but sold him for 1500 which is about 2000$.
I offered a bit more but he allready had agreed with the new owner.
To bad for me. The dagger was located not far from my place. :-(
thankyou krisse. Not a mega bargain anyway so don't lose sleep that's all I will say.
Best wishes matty
maybe not mega bargain, but also not a bad price either.
Very nice and it is great to find an SS dagger. Prices vary depending on condition I know. Is two thousand about the going rate for an SS dagger today in good condition?
Well, sometimes even more. Especially on dealersites. They all pull the prices up!!!
Yeah I"ll bet Krisse. Be a nice score to find one at a yard sale. Long shot but it doesn't hurt to look. Thanks for reply
