Government Official Dagger — Alcoso Solingen

SOLD!

Here’s a nice Government Official’s dagger in rare condition! It’s hard to find a Government Dagger without at least 30-50% plating loss, and even harder still to find one with a nice blade. This one has it all! As mentioned, the plating on this dagger is just south of 100%. I’ve personally never held one as shiny and new in appearance as this one…

Here’s a nice Government Official’s dagger in rare condition! It’s hard to find a Government Dagger without at least 30-50% plating loss, and even harder still to find one with a nice blade. This one has it all!

As mentioned, the plating on this dagger is just south of 100%. I’ve personally never held one as shiny and new in appearance as this one. The grip fittings are superbly detailed, with the crossguard eagle retaining 100% of it’s factory detail – no kidding, this thing looks new! The hilt shows no notable dings or noteworthy scratches. The artificial mother-of-pearl grip plates are beautiful. The only notable flaws with these being a couple very minor scratches to the surface of one, and a very small chip at the top of the other where it enters the highest cut peak of the eagle’s head. Most will pass this by without notice as it almost appears to be part of the design. The spanner nut on top of the eagle’s head appears to have never been tampered with (see photos), and is nicely aligned lengthwise between the eagle’s beak and the back of his head.

The blade on this one is in exceptional condition, showing only very modest spotting. The only other flaw to note are a few “spurs” along the edges of the blade. Otherwise a very nice blade with a strong, prominent cross grain.

The scabbard is a eye catcher! The patina and finish match the dagger perfectly in every detail. Aside from a few small dings along the narrow sides of the scabbard, it is in perfect condition throughout. I’ve included a photo showing these dings.

Overall this Government Dagger would be difficult to upgrade. Any dagger, whether Government Official or otherwise will carry its own set of flaws, the key is finding one whose condition significantly outweighs its flaw, and this is one such example!
