    It's made by the M.C.Lilley company. It's obviously ornamental and from what I can tell they're fairly common but I can't find much information about the markings on this one. It's got what looks to be someone's name on the back of the blade. The name is hard to read because it's very detailed calygraphy. The handle is ivory with the initials of the name on the blade with a cross through a crown above them on one side and a cross inside of a triangle on the other side. The predominant symbol is a cross through a crown. That symbol appears twice on the blade and once on the handle, the hilt and the scabbard. The blade has some very detailed pictures of knights fighting in the crusades and stuff like that. The scabbard is silver (colored) with ornamental brass designs of armor and stuff all over it. Anyone know what this kind of stuff is worth?

    I tried to get some closeups but my camera seriously sucks at taking pics of anything within 2 feet. This is the best I could do.

    :mamoru: I have an old nickel plated 1st model Luftwaffe nazi dagger, too. I'd probably carry that one first. My grandpa took it off of a dead nazi in WWII :cool:

    Noone knows how much crap like this is worth? I saw one at a gun show for $75 but it was nowhere near as nice and it wasn't as decorative.
