Description

Near Flawless Red Cross Officer Dagger.  Exterior retains its uniform nickel plated finish that grades 99%.  Yellow grip has two cracks with any pieces glued back in place.  The damage is on the reverse and is visible only from that side.  Out of interest, this grip once retained a portepee, as indicated by the "non darkened" area of the grip on the obverse, where sunlight did not hit it as much.  Grip retention screw is perfect - these are usually marred when someone attempts to disassemble the dagger.  The internal nut that holds the grip in place is a little loose - so the grip wobbles ever so slightly - this could be fixed, very carefully, by removing the cruciform exterior screw, and tightening the interior retention nut.  I'd leave it alone!  Blade is ultra-bright and retains 100% of the factory polish with some extremely minor peppering in places.  This would grade "near mint" on any dagger dealer's website, and could probably be improved to mint.  Overall, a very handsome dagger.
