ID:	562174 A friend found this digging in her garden. The home was built in 1890 and is was a high class home. Ihave no idea what it is other than a dagger. She cleaned it with ajax and a toothbrush. Click image for larger version

        Cool. Looks like a theater stage prop piece.

            None that I can see but may be hidden by glass gems. Cant see a seam in the handle indicating a 2 piece one though. I think it is a prop of some type but being buried in her garden cant figure as she moved there 20+yrs ago and started the re store then. No edge at all so almost gotta be a prop. The caricatures on the cross guard I thought someone would recognize. No valuable Roman sword for sure.

              I'm thinking silver and ceremonial. Love to see better pictures too.

                I had thought maybe an item from some sort of fraternal order or group but those are most often marked for such a group. Mysterious indeed

                  Pattern on the blade looks almost Celtic and the cross guard figure kinda reminded me of a representation of “The Green Man”

                Check to see if the blade has been sharpened or if it’s dull

                  t was very dull and didn't look like it was ever sharpened. Next time I go see her I will get better pics. and test it for silver.
