    Army officer dress dagger with leather sheath, dated 1955.

    Army officer dress dagger with leather sheath, dated 1955.

    This scarce version of the Soviet Army dagger features simplified depiction of the Spasskaya Clock Tower of the Moscow Kremlin: note for example the simple clock lacking the numerals and the segment immediately above the clock which lacks the vertical lines in the middle. /Another example with identical simplified artwork is shown in the reference guide"Soviet Dirks" by Bodyrev et al, pp. 134, 135./

    The pommel shows Soviet State Seal of pre-1956 type, with 16 scrolls for number of republics in the Soviet Union. The ricasso is maker marked "ZIK" and dated 1955; its other side shows engraved serial number "N14613." Very uncommon and attractive dark toned Bakelite grip. There are small maker marks under the rivets holding the brass fittings of the scabbard: diamond-shaped on the lower fittings and a "B" in a circle on the upper fitting.

    In excellent condition. The leather is beautiful and "healthy, showing only minimal wear and free of scuffs, scratches or other damage. The blade is nearly pristine, with only the slightest in-out wear. The gilt finish is nicely preserved and bright on all brass parts. There are a couple of tiny chips to the lower edge of the Bakelite grip, where it meets the lower brass fitting of the hilt, almost unnoticeable and not affecting the integrity of the grip in any way.

    A beautiful piece overall, and far more uncommon than a typical version with more detailed artwork.
