I have here a personalized Army dagger in great shape. The personalization was probably done by the owner himself as it was not professionally engraved with his name 'Henniger' on the reverse of the grossguard. Still, it's a bit more personal to have a dagger that was revered by it's owner. As far as I know, it hasn't been researched.
The blade of this dagger is in mirror-like condition with faint in-out runner marks. There is just one tiny spot on the reverse, hardly noticeable but I add that for clarity. The tip is like a needle. The handle is pumpkin colored with no chips, cracks, or scratches. Attached is a portepee in the correct wrap. The crossguard eagle is really something to look at, crisp and detailed. The scabbard is undented. It does have a few dark spots in a couple of places. The bands are well detailed. Overall this dagger would make for a desireable display piece along with some medals or insignia.
I'm always open to offers.
