This fantastic dagger is one of the very early examples that had a softer-shell leather scabbard upon which were mounted the fittings with very large staple-type clips. This was a carry-over from the method of assembling the DLV 55cm dagger, which was the precursor to this model. The dagger, though salty with age, grades HIGH "near mint," and carries a percentage rating of at least 98%. Blade is flawless. Leather is flawless, and shows a conservative "bulging" where the internal scabbard runners have pushed against the leather for decades. What makes this piece even more phenomenal is that both the crossguard and scabbard are unit marked with a unit designation of Flak Regiment 12. Plenty of research opportunity here, not to find the owner's name, but to learn a lot about this unit's history.
