    Description

    A Beautiful and Rare Mid-19th Century Dag. A very rare form, probably originating in the High Plains, possibly Plains Cree or Assiniboine. The blade has a rich variegated patina with very sharp edges. The brass appears to have been cleaned many years ago and is toning nicely. Given the deposits around the edges, it is likely that the brass was virtually black before cleaning. Overall condition is very nice, with old cracks in the handle as shown and minor corrosion on two of the brass plates on one side. Length 9.25".

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
