Antique Dagger (unknown)

Stylistically it's a Swiss or Holbein dagger.  The stamped and chased metal covered sheath looks, in my totally inexpert opinion, to be Italian or Spanish work of the late 19th to the mid 20th century, ca. 1880-1960.  A tourist or costume piece, in other words.  If the end of the hilt were not broken off, I'd put it at around $75 USD.  But again, I am no expert!  It's nice work, though.
