This dagger is very close to being stone mint. The only thing that is not perfect on this piece is that some of the enamel on the RLB emblem is worn off. The blade is stunning with a perfect maker mark. The nickel fittings are superb and the paint is perfect. The hanger is intact and is very pliable. All the rivets are domed and untouched. It is a little pricey, but this one is above average.
