ITALIAN MVSN 1925 MODEL OFFICERS DAGGER.
This is a very rare example of the Italian Fascist 1925 model poniard dagger and was the first dagger adopted by the Italian Fascist government, some parts of these rare daggers were produced in 1925 by using left over parts of Italian bayonets, an early version of recycling. Steel hilt still retaining much original silver plating showing wear on the high points.The black wooden grip plates are in fine condition and both sides are inset with the Italian Fascist insignia.The blade on this model dagger is blued cruciform steel and almost certainly they used up old bayonet blades to produce these.The crossguard is stamped on the reverse side MVSN and on the reverse side with issue number A773. The scabbard is in nice condition and again it is almost certainly constructed from an Italian bayonet scabbard with two scabbard bands and belt loop added at the factory. A very interesting dagger, it has been some years since i have had one to offer for sale as they seldom come available and especially in nice condition. [Condition: Exc++]
