  1. Hi Fritz what was the outcome with your dagger ? martin
  2. Hi Paul thanks for your reply . shrapnel , glancing bullet strike , pick axe , we will never know but as you say a great piece of WW2 history and I feel lucky to be its present keeper cheers Paul martin
  3. I’m no expert , but I would have thought with the nice condition, vertical hanger and certificate , a serious collector would be happy to part with £2500 martin
  4. Hello Fritz a real shame you have to sell such a wonderful piece of your family’s history. a really valuable item with great provenance. And looking at the certificate , your uncle brought some other cool stuff home with the dagger ! just make sure you find a collector to sell to rather than a dealer i hope you get the high price it deserves Best of luck Fritz martin2
  5. Hi Steve Ha Ha like it , I thought it might be more a case of a b/u11-s.h-1t strike rather than the old H-RTS230/245 . thanks as usual for your valued opinion. as you know I do like to add my personal touch so I’m just off to Halfords to get a spray can of green gloss , apple green of course ! soon bring that baby back to life !! as a fellow restorer you will know what I mean ;/ Best Wishes Martin
  6. Hi Steve thanks for your reply , yes your right an ET 64 shell . the rivet heads look a little bit to good , we all know that it’s quite often the case that the paint remains on the rivet heads so I don’t know . until I bought it I was not aware of roller buckles , have you or anyone else come across them ? I have looked into this and it matches pictures of other examples. oh and Steve , what’s an H-RTS230/245 ? as is often the case the pictures don’t really do it justice here are three more that may or may not be better Best Wishes Martin
