15.  Consignment RR~ Spanish American War Dagger (possibly older) appears to be of Spanish colonial descent, given the three sided blade, no hollow grind, deep cusp on the scabbard mounts.  It is likely that this knife had a frog or a chain hanger.  Blade is 12 ¼” long and does have some small pitting spots on both sides of the blade.  Wood handle is wire wrapped.  Brass “S” guard, ferrel and pommel cap.  I’m guessing that the scabbard is pigskin over wood with brass mounts.  Knife is 16 ¾” overall and very well balanced.  There have been examples of this knife with American Eagles engraved on the blade. Subic Bay has been a host to the World’s Navies for over 400 years.  Given this knives age of 100-200 years old, it is in excellent condition.  And it is a very interesting piece of U.S. Military history.

84.  FAKE F/S--The following information is being presented in the hope that other collectors will not get burnt:
Fake 2nd Pattern F/S--Made to be a Free French  Variation--The 6 7/8" blade is blackened, under the black is what appears to be a copper plating or coating. The guard has a small Broad Arrow on the top side. The blackened knurled grip has a large Cross  imbedded in the knurling. The Cross is aprox 1/2" tall and 3/8" wide.  After talking with a couple friends, John Fischer and Tom Parker and re-reading a section of Ron Flook's book, I have come to the conclusion that this thing is bogus.
This additional information came from fellow collector Kerry Gordon.  (thanks Kerry)
I just thought that you might like to know that you weren't the only one ever caught with one of these - not only do I have the French version but I also have one with the Belgian Rampant Lion stamped into the hilt.

The real give away with these is that the blade tang doesn't run all the way through the pommel nut, there's about two threads empty at the end of the nut.  The other thing is that the brass pommel nuts are painted with gloss black paint rather than blackened.

Someone spent a lot of time and effort on these, the blades really are tinned under the blackening and the hilts are blackened brass that is reasonable well checkered.
