A Fine RAD Leader Dagger by E.F.Horster
RAD Leader’s Dagger E.F.Horster - This dagger has been acquired from an early/old American collection and as such has exhibits deep toning and patina one would expect from an untouched example. The aluminum handle and cross guard remain bright and solid, housing a mint ivory-coloured handle with zero chips or cracks and very minor wear. The leather washer remains. The blade is clearly marked with a nice clean maker mark and motto. The only contact to the blade appears to be from handling decades ago, however it retains an extremely fine rating. The Scabbard is nickel plated steel, with zero dents or marks. There is wear to one side where it once rested against the owners side (example of period use). The blade fits perfectly within the scabbard, not overly tight. Overall, extremely fine and one of the best examples of this type.
