Imperial Russian Dagger.

The dagger lloks beautiful, but ... seeing what this dealer has for sale (too many fakes), I am not sure about this one.
Two orders on one dagger - is it possible?
Condition of almost 100 years old dagger?
Are these orders original, even the dagger was restored and looks original it self?

Eric

There's more Fakes than real of these...

I'd have to hold it to tell you if it's OK. The 2 orders is indeed weird.

Eric,

I think it was probably put together with some old and new parts with fake badges. A good indicator is the leather washer - looks completely new and the edge is too rough.

Thanks Alexei, Rusty
I had the same feeling. In addition to all indicators you stated, my another reason was also - "staff" this guy sells - 99% fakes.

Eric.

Russian Imperial Dagger

What about this dagger?
Is it authentic?
The dagger is probably authentic, but my concern is Nikolay II monogram.
Is the Monogram authentic?

Eric,

I am not an expert in edged weapons, but I would stay away from it. The monogram is indeed crude, but I also don't like the tang button, and the brass piece, holding the grip on the gross guard side. I have seen a similar piece with a blade made of the Mosin-Nagant bayo.
