WWII Nationalist Chinese Army Officer Dagger
The nickel plated blade is generally bright, with some spots, gray areas, and three small nicks to one edge. The gilt finish is largely worn from the brass pommel, grip straps and scabbard fittings, giving them a toned brass appearance. The guard is nickel, and the grip is covered in shark skin. The pommel exhibits crossed Chinese flags. The grip straps and pommel top display cherry blossoms. The nickel plated scabbard shows some relatively minor spots to the plated finish.
